Taxes may go up without vote Indian Hill school board considers ‘moving’ 1.25 mills By Forrest Sellers

The Indian Hill school board is considering moving 1.25 mills of inside millage to fund permanent improvements. The board set a hearing for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10, in the high school multi-purpose room, 6865 Drake Road, to discuss converting the inside millage. Board member Ted Jaroszewicz, who is chair of the finance committee, said the consideration to move 1.25-mills was made

Millage discussion

What: Indian Hill Exempted Village School District will hold a hearing to discuss moving 1.25-mills for the purpose of funding permanent improvements. When: 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10. Where: Indian Hill High School Multi-Purpose Room, 6865 Drake Road. because of the “high likelihood that real estate valuations will decrease” and because of changes in state funding for schools.

A decision to move millage means the school tax portion of the property tax will increase. The owner of a $500,000 home will pay an additional $218.75 per year, according to the district. Several school districts have converted millage for capital improvements, including the Goshen and West Clermont local school districts. The Clermont Northeastern Local School District is considering it. Treasurer Brian Switzer with the Clermont Northeastern Local

School District said the inside millage option was provided by the legislature as a means for school districts to raise funds for capital improvements without a vote by the public. Capital improvements would include the purchase of textbooks, buses, technology and computers and improvements and repairs to the school buildings. “We’re taking this step because we think that it is important for us to both manage our revenue as well as our costs,” said Jaroszewicz.

Mothers group celebrating 20 years By Rob Dowdy

The Indian Hill Mothers Group has been going strong for 20 years, and members of the group see no reason to slow down now. The group’s humble beginnings were as a baby-sitting co-op, but it’s quickly expanded to the social and fundraising group it is today. Erin Starkey, president of the mothers group, said while the membership, which totals about 100 village moms, isn’t formally celebrating its big anniversary, the two-decade run of the mothers club was the focus of the group’s entry into the July 4 parade in Indian Hill. The Indian Hill Mothers Group meets several times a month. Members are invited to attend speaker functions, regular outings and local tours. Starkey said the organization also hosts family gatherings, like the Halloween party, breakfast with Santa Claus and a “last day of school” party.


Indian Hill Mothers Group members Lynn Robinson, Jenny Heekin, Lynnette Wyler and Jessica Folke take a break from the festivities during the group’s “last day of school” party this summer. The group hosts a number of events throughout the year for members and their families. While the group’s membership is for village mothers only, Starkey said some exceptions are occasionally made. “We do let the husbands join the fun,” she said. Amy Quible, who’s been a member for 14 years, said she joined as a way to meet new peo-

Gone with the wind? Not quite yet By Rob Dowdy

Last September, a wind storm swept through the Greater Cincinnati area, leaving residents and local governments without electricity amid scattered tree debris. Approximately one year later, Indian Hill Public Works is still picking up downed trees from the village’s horse trails, which span 150 miles. Indian Hill Public Works Superintendent John Davis said while right-of-ways and the parks were cleaned up in the days and weeks

after the storm, about 40 percent of the horse trails still contain tree debris that workers are cleaning up, between their typical projects during the summer months. “Eventually, we’ll get it all cleaned up,” he said. The trails are basically wooded areas, making it difficult and timeconsuming for village workers to sort through and remove the debris blocking the trails. Davis said workers are removing the downed trees as time allows. Davis said the village was eligible for and received a reimbursement of $266,121 from FEMA to

Kathy Griffith knows the agony of having a loved one stationed in a war zone, but she considers herself lucky as her oldest son came home unharmed after two tours of duty in Iraq. That’s when she decided to help those families facing harsher realities coming back from the war. Griffith learned about Homes for Our Troops, a nonprofit organization that raises money to build a new home or modify an existing home to become handicap accessible and are given to disabled veterans. Griffith, who lives in Reading, is organizing her own fundraiser in Sycamore Township, a co-ed softball and sand volleyball tournament at Bechtold Park, to raise money for Homes for Our Troops. She said there have been no homes built in Ohio through the organization but that the money she raises will be used for an Ohio veteran. “I feel very blessed (my son came back unharmed),” Griffith said. “I wanted to give back.” The tournament, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 19, at Bechtold Park, costs $10 a person, or $15 on the day of the event, to play on the co-ed softball and sand volleyball teams. Griffith said that participants can organize their own teams or sign up and be placed on one.

Medicaid in recent years means Ohio is spending ever-increasing amounts of funding on this program, and unless we come up with a plan to rein in costs it will soon become unsustainable and threaten Ohio’s future financial stability,” Jones said. “I look forward to working with members of the workgroup to develop a system of care that lowers costs, increases efficiency and allows individuals to choose the type of care that best suits their needs.” Ohio’s Medicaid program provides health care services to more than 2 million low-income Ohio families, seniors and individuals with disabilities each year. The state spends roughly 35 percent of its two-year budget on Medicaid, and a study by the Scripps Gerontology Center study found Medicaid expenditures could reach 68 percent of state general revenue funds if cost-containment measures are not enacted.

Height variance granted for FBI building By Amanda Hopkins

Sycamore Township Board of Trustees granted a variance on the proposed plans for the FBI building set to be built on Montgomery Road. Barry Real Estate Group, the developers of the FBI building, asked for a vari-

The Board of Trustees approved the variance for the 6.26-acre site, but on the premise that conditions set by the zoning commission would be followed by

Dear Residents of the Indian Hill Exempted Village School District, The Indian Hill School District’s future budgets will be affected by changes in state laws on school funding and falling real estate values. To solidify our future financial position, the Indian Hill School Board is considering designating 1.25 inside mills for the specific purpose of funding permanent improvements. Designating 1.25 mills for this purpose would add $1.7 million to the School’s annual revenue, at today’s real estate valuations. The additional funding will become available to the School District in 2011. The leadership of the Indian Hill School District has worked diligently for many years to make sure our students get a world-class education. Our Schools are a hallmark of our community and an important consideration for people choosing to move into our community. The community has been supportive of the School District for several generations – financially, philosophically and by its presence at athletic, arts and other educational events held throughout the year in the schools. We recently discussed the School District’s finances in a Financial Forum for the community. A detailed overview of that discussion can be found on the School District’s web site http://www.ih.k12., under the “Finance” section, heading “Reports”. The School District receives revenue from several sources – real estate taxes, tax increment financing agreements, tangible property taxes, interest income and funding from the State of Ohio. The School District’s total General Fund revenue from all sources for the school year ended June 30, 2009 was $31.7 million. Total expenditures, including capital items, were $30.1 million.


Christian Salzmann, a junior at Madeira High School, painted the United States of America on the playground at Madeira Elementary School as part of his large project to earn the Eagle Scout Award.

Approximately 88% of the School District’s annual funding comes from taxes on local real estate, including rollback and homestead reimbursements from the State of Ohio, and tax increment financing revenue from several commercial properties including Kenwood Towne Center. The recent decline in real estate values and recent Ohio legislation with respect to school funding will most likely have an adverse effect on the School District’s funding in the near and long-term future.

Eagle Scout livens up elementary playground

The Indian Hill School District has operated at the 20 mill floor, the lowest millage allowable by law in the State of Ohio, for more than 10 years. By operating at 20 mills, the School District’s revenues increased in direct proportion to property value increases. For planning and budgeting purposes, we are assuming that, on the whole, the change in property valuations in the next major reassessment in 2011 will be zero at best, and may be negative. This means that the change in revenues from real estate taxes would be zero, with a good probability that we could experience a decrease in revenue.

By Amanda Hopkins

The State of Ohio provides the Indian Hill School District with approximately 16% of its revenue in the form of: • Real estate tax rollback and homestead reimbursements - $2.6 million (part of the 88% of total revenue previously mentioned); • Tangible property tax reimbursement (in 2010, tangible property taxes will have been completely phased out) - $1.4 million; • State Foundation funding – $1.1 million; and • State grants - $350,000

Christian Salzmann is one step closer to earning the rank of Eagle Scout after the completion of his service project. The Madeira High School junior completed painting the map of the United States of America on the Madeira Elementary School playground. He had help from members of his Boy Scout Troop 209 and from both of his parents, Joanne and Chuck Salzmann and his brother, Stefan Salzmann. Christian said he chose the painting as his service project after hearing from different members of the community that the original map was a little plain. He said that before the painting, the map was just a simple dotted outline of the United States. In his plans,

Recently, new legislation was signed into law in the State of Ohio that will affect the funding and operations of all school districts in Ohio. For the Indian Hill School District, the final version of House Bill 1 (“HB 1”) and the State’s biennium budget contain some good news, bad news, and quite a few unknowns. The good news is that the first year of the biennium reduces our State Foundation revenue by only 1%; the second year of the budget comes with a 2% reduction of the 2009 -2010 allocation. Given the economic landscape and words of caution from the State about further revisions to the State’s budget, we believe we should be prepared for more significant adverse changes in funding available from the State of Ohio for our School District. A new school funding formula in HB 1 is expected to eliminate state funding for high wealth districts such as ours. The new formula creates what is to be known as the Education Challenge Factor (ECF) that addresses differences among districts in concentration of poverty, property/income wealth, and college attainment level of the community. Given these factors, the Indian Hill School District would lose annual funding from the State of approximately $400,000. HB 1 also contains a change in the reimbursement formula for transportation services. We have not yet seen what the specific changes will be; at risk could be the nearly $600,000 in additional state funding that we currently receive annually. Tangible Personal Property (“TPP”) Taxes are scheduled to be phased out to zero by 2010. The State of Ohio has been reimbursing school districts for the loss of this revenue. The TPP tax replacement payments have been extended one year longer than previously required by law – through 2013. If there is no change in the law before FY 2014, the original phase-down schedule for replacement payments will be resumed with all TPP replacements eliminated in 2018. Currently, we receive annual tangible personal property taxes or reimbursements of approximately $1.4 million. For the past two decades, the School District has managed the financial resources provided by the community in a careful and prudent manner. The District has: • Operated with a surplus operating budget for 15 of the last 18 years; • Built and renovated its buildings and grounds with the help of a $49.7 million bond issue approved by the voters of the School District in 2000; • Built a cash reserve rainy day fund of approximately $23 million.

Christian and other members of his troop worked out the map to include six colors with no bordering states having the same color. He said he hopes that the colorful map will help teachers make geography lessons more exciting for the students. Chuck Salzmann said he has been very proud of his son while watching him organize and lead the project. “He has really been able to demonstrate leadership,” Chucksaid. Besides being an active member of Boy Scouts, Christian also runs cross country and track and is involved in Latin Club. Before earning the Eagle Scout rank, Christian still has to serve in a leadership role in his troop for six months and complete and Eagle Scout Board of Review.

Requirements for Eagle Scout Rank

• Be active in your troop for a period of at least six months after you have achieved the rank of Life Scout • Demonstrate that you live by the principle of the Scout Oath and Law in your daily life • Earn a total of 21 merit badges (12 of these merit badges must be Eagle required) • While a Life Scout, serve actively for a period of six months in one or more of specific positions of responsibility • While a Life Scout, plan, develop and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to any religious institution, any school or your community • Take part in a Scoutmaster conference • Successfully complete an Eagle Scout board of review

The School District’s leadership believes that the net effect over time of the new legislation will be to reduce the District’s annual revenues by up to $2.4 million. Combined with a potential reduction in funding from real estate taxes, our cash reserves, which seem large today, would be dissipated in less than 10 years. From an expense point of view, the School District’s fastest growing expense line is health care. Although teachers and staff now contribute 15% of the premiums for health care (up from 0% only 10 years ago), overall premiums have been increasing at a high, and in some years, alarming rate. The School District shops for health insurance annually, but premiums continue to increase rapidly. For the school year that ended on June 30, 2009, the School District reduced its expenditures on non-personnel related costs and capital items by 8.7% from the prior year. These reductions were made possible by the efforts of principals, teachers, maintenance staff and the non-teaching staff of the School District, under the direction of the Superintendent, to be careful and frugal without affecting the educational experience for students. As an example, many capital projects that previously might have been contracted out to third-party vendors were executed by the School District’s maintenance staff. We believe the future funding gaps can be addressed partially through: • Aggressive cost management of outlays for purchased services, supplies, materials and textbooks. The School District’s highest priority is always to provide the very best possible education for each student. We do everything possible to ensure that funding provided by taxpayers is spent carefully. • The designation of a portion of the inside millage available to the School District for permanent improvements. Designating 1.25 mills for permanent improvements will have the effect of increasing the School District’s funding by approximately $1.7 million annually. These funds can only be used to fund specific types of purchases, such as building and grounds improvements, computers, textbooks, and school buses. These types of items currently amount to approximately $1.3 million annually. If the Board passes a resolution to designate 1.25 inside mills for permanent improvements, revenue from such a designation will not be available until 2011. • The use of our cash reserves to make up the difference between available funding and expenditures. Our goal has been to build up the equivalent of one year’s worth of revenues in our reserve funds. At the end of the most recent school year ending June 30, 2009, our reserves amounted to approximately 68% of one year’s total revenue.

Tickets now available for RetroFittings

At some point in the future, the Indian Hill School District may have to ask voters to approve an operating levy for additional funding. By taking the actions described above, in the context of the changes in state funding that we anticipate, we believe we can postpone asking voters for more funding for several years. The Board will conduct a hearing and information session on the designation of inside millage for permanent improvements on November 10, 2009 at 7:30 p.m. in the multipurpose room in the High School. We welcome all community members to the meeting, and we will be happy to answer any and all questions on our operations, as well as the designation of inside millage to make up for some of the expected loss of revenue from the State of Ohio. If anyone in the community is interested in discussing this issue with the School Board, please contact any of us. Our telephone numbers are listed on the School District’s website.

The classes are from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Indian Hill High School, 6865 Drake Road. “We have the resources available (at the school),” said Pique. “It’s a way to fill a need in the community.” Student volunteers are also needed to help with the classes. The classes are free.

Indian Hills Schools will offer a series of CyberStudio classes throughout the fall and winter. “These classes are great places to go to have technology questions answered,” said Arline Pique, director of technology for the district. A variety of classes will be offered such as Internet basics, newsletter creation and PowerPoint basics. Instructor Mark Richardson will teach several classes including one titled “Keeping Ahead of Your Children Online,” which will provide a look at social networking sites. “The ready availability of technology at home and school requires people to

CCD looking for 4th straight win By Mark Chalifoux

The Cincinnati Country Day football team has gotten off to a strong start, winning its first three games of the 2009 season, and looks to continue the success when the Indians host Clark Montessori Sept. 17 at 6:30 p.m. CCD picked up its latest win on the road against Taylor by a score of 19-7. The Indians were up 190 through three quarters before Taylor added a late touchdown. Max Dietz ran for a 42-yard touchdown and a 24-yard touchdown as he was the chief playmaker again for the Indians. Jake Dietz also had a 5-yard touchdown run against Taylor. If the Indians push it to four straight wins against 21 Clark Montessori, CCD will have to look to senior running back Max Dietz to lead the charge. Dietz now has six rushing touchdowns this season to go with two touchdown receptions. Dietz has also been a playmaker on defense, along with Wyatt Tiffany, Clint Thomas and Will Duncan and Jordan Patterson in the secondary. The Indians will face a team that outscored its competition 66-13 through two weeks before falling to Williamsburg 21-6. Clark has a pair of strong running backs, led by Al Upshaw and Ernest Smith. The game is the first conference game for the Cougars and the Indians will

Moeller 21 Centerville 19

Moeller won a close game against Centerville despite being down 13-7 at

one point. The Crusaders defense led the way, even as Moeller suffered from a host of questionable calls in the game’s final quarter. Moeller was led by linebacker Kendall Walker, who had 14 tackles, and quarterback Andrew Hendrix, who threw for 79 yards and ran for 66 yards. The Crusaders will need to get their offense back on track as Moeller travels to Findlay for a game Saturday Sept. 19.

The Braves fell to 0-3 on the season after the big Turpin offensive line had its way with the Indian Hill defense. Turpin’s second-string running back, Will Stocker, ran for 334 yards and four touchdowns against Indian Hill.

Ursuline nets 6-0 start on court Lions ranked No. 1 in Cincinnati By Anthony Amorini

The mere mention of Ursuline Academy’s only loss of the 2008 season instantly inspires intensity for the Lions’ volleyball team. Much like last season, Ursuline is off to an undefeated start this fall as the Lions began its 2009 campaign at 6-0. But the sting of suffering its first and only loss of its 28-1 season at the 2008 Division I State Championships hasn’t faded yet. “The girls think about it a lot and I use it as motivation. They remember,” Ursuline head coach Jeni


Ursuline Academy junior Rachel Weisenburger serves against Mother of Mercy High School Sept 11. UA won 3-0. Case said. “It’s good for them to remember it, but (the tournament) is still a long way off.” With most of the fall sea-

son remaining, Case wasn’t about to discuss the 2009 postseason after Ursuline’s 6-0 start, the coach said. “We definitely have things to work on but that’s a good thing,” Case said. “I knew we wouldn’t come out and play perfectly right away. “I just wonder what it will be like when everyone on the court has their best game. I don’t want to see it this early but hopefully we’ll see it come tournament time,” Case added. Seniors Dani Reinert and Jade Henderson and junior Kori Moster led Ursuline during its 6-0 start. Moster, Ursuline’s libero, is particularly affected when Case conjures thoughts of the Lions’ 2008 loss. “She runs about 20 times harder as soon as I mention

it. You can see it on her face,” Case joked. Reinert and Henderson react in much the same way, Case said. “(Reinert) is all business and last year still bugs her,” Case said. “The girls look up to (Reinert, Henderson and Moster) a lot. “Now they know what it’s like (to play in the state finals) and obviously they want to get back there again,” Case added. Looking down the road, Ursuline will face a difficult test during its final game of the regular season. During Ursuline’s senior night Thursday, Oct. 15, the No. 1 Lions host No. 2 Lakota West at 6:30 p.m. According to the Enquirer’s Division I Coaches’ Poll following week one, Ursuline was No. 1 with 89

Field hockey on the ball in 2009 season By Anthony Amorini

There aren’t a lot of field hockey teams around town but despite the low numbers, a quintet of local squads are still anxiously looking forward to the fall season. Here’s a look at the prospects for the local girls:

Indian Hill

On the heels of a 2-5 season in 2008, Indian Hill aims to finish with a muchimproved record this fall. Paula Childs, third-year head coach for Indian Hill, returns eight starters this season including Hannah Bachman, Veronica Cole, Riley Irvine, Tori Lewis, Jessica Quible, Audrey Meier, Kelly Hilmer and Molly Miller. Freshman Karson Meurer will make immediate contributions as a key new addition. “We also have a very promising group of freshmen on the (junior varsity) squad and are excited with the development of the field hockey program as a whole,” Childs said via email. “With the assistance of my JV coach, Gena Bailey, I foresee the JV squad doing very well this year.”


The Cougars advanced to the state semifinals last year before falling 2-0 to Hathaway Brown. But with 12 returning seniors, MND looks primed


St. Ursula’s Travis Stelzer tries to get past Indian Hill’s Vernica Cole during a home game for the Bulldogs. not only to return to the state tournament, but to win it as well. The top returning Cougars for head coach Don Johnson include Amy Flynn, an all-league performer last season who led the defense and scored three goals; midfielder Sara Kuhlman, who scored once and dished out five assists; and forward Nikki Sever, who netted six goals of her own. Also contributing will be seniors Catie Ewen, Mary Lytle, Stephanie Mattei, Ally Roettgers, Megan Russ, Stephanie Schmalz, Kasey Sweeney, Ana Vigil and Lexie Vigil, as well as juniors Eva Antenucci, Lauren DiNardo, Molly Hildebrandt, Abbey Hopkins, Kat Raess,

Maggie Steele, Casey Towle and Beth Warning. Johnson said he expects his team to be successful.

Saint Ursula

Senior captains Marielle Grote and Olivia Hnat look to lead the Bulldogs this fall after Saint Ursula finished

with an impressive 14-1-1 record in 2008. A total of six starters return for the Bulldogs including Grote (attack), Hnat (defender), senior Ali Zerbe (midfield, attack), senior Rachel Van Zile (midfield), senior Emily Gruesser (midfield) and junior Ellen Ryan (goalie). “Returning a core of balanced starters, St. Ursula looks to compete for a slot in (the) state tournament,” first-year head coach Sarah Catlin said via e-mail. “Team captains Marielle Grote and Olivia Hnat will give leadership at both ends of the field. “Tremendous work ethic and commitment from the rest of the squad looks to position the Bulldogs for an aggresive and upbeat style of play,” Catlin added. Sophomores Ashley Rodd (defender) and Elley Frank (attack) will make immediate contributions as key new additions for the Bulldogs.


A group of 10 seniors on

the Lions’ roster should provide Ursuline Academy with plenty of leadership on the field this spring. In addition to the leadership provided by its seniors, Ursuline returns six starters including Maggie Allard, Maddie Miller, Megan Schnicke, Chelsea Rolfes, Julia Tasset and Isabel Gonzalez del Rey. Ursuline finished at 105-1 in 2008 and was eliminated during the first round of postseason play. “(We have) lots of expereince combined with (a) strong junior class also returning,” head coach Elli Workum said via e-mail. Workum and coach Libby Lame are being their second year at the helm of Ursuline’s program. Workum expects to see immediate contributions from a trio of talented newcomers including Ellie Robertson, Nicole Mitchell and Katie Cowperthwait. After repeated attempts, Summit Country Day coaches were unavailable before Community Press deadlines.

Growing government does not serve the people As our federal government continues to spend money in an attempt to repair the economy, Americans are questioning the boundaries of government control and spending. The primary role of government is to serve its citizens by providing national security and protection from corruption. It is not, however, instituted to provide equal success for everyone by controlling the economy and redistributing wealth. Its job is to provide equal opportunity for success by ensuring everyone’s right to pursue their individual ambitions. Logic tells us that we can’t solve a debt crisis by racking up more debt and increasing spending. However, the Democrats in

Washington appear to think otherwise. R e c e n t l y, government has grown too large to be managed efficiently and effectively, so Ron Maag families are now forced to 35th District pay the price for State high governRepresentative ment expenses. During these difficult economic times, it is of the utmost importance that all lawmakers work toward sensible, cost-effective policies that minimize waste and increase accountability.

CH@TROOM Sept. 9 question

Should there be laws banning all use of cell phones while driving? Why or why not? “Absolutely. It’s pretty ludicrous that we haven’t passed one yet. Every single day I’m subjected to idiots in their cars trying to merge onto any major thoroughfare with a cell phone jammed in their left ear, barely paying attention to oncoming traffic. Of course, with the left hand so busy with the phone, there is very little chance of actually using the turn signal. They either speed, or more commonly, barely reach the speed limit. You would think when someone is operating a 2,500pound vehicle (or 6,000-pound SUV) at highway speed, or in a residential neighborhood, one would want to be aware of their surroundings. One second of inattention and your life or someone else’s could be taken or compromised by a lack of common sense and self control. A complete, in car hand held ban would be fantastic, but I won’t count on it. I see just as many Cincinnati and Anderson police officers on their cells while driving as anyone else.” N.B. “In my opinion, despite the probability that drivers who are distracted because they are using cell phones will cause accidents, my answer is ‘no.’ There are other ways to discourage risky behavior besides passing laws to ban it. There has been far too much intrusion by the government on the behavior of private citizens already, and it is a dangerous trend. When it comes to texting – far more distracting – I’m not certain that the passage of a law against it would deter someone who is dumb enough to text while driving. A better solution would be for drivers to use ‘hands-free’ devices to make cell phone calls, if it is absolutely imperative that they do so while driving.” B.B. “No. Like most things, most people are capable of using cell phones and operating a car in a safe manner. Concentrate the laws and the penalties on those who are driving carelessly and causing accidents, regardless of the reason.” B.P.

Next question Has there been a decline in civility at town hall meetings and public meetings in general? If so, why is this happening? Every week the Eastern Hills Journal asks readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to easternhills@community with Chatroom in the subject line. “With the possible exception of ‘total hands-free operation’ (i.e., Bluetooth earpiece or voice-activated phone use) where the driver can keep both hands on the wheel, then yes, cell phone use should be banned while driving. “Operating a motor vehicle is dangerous enough without introducing yet another major distraction from concentrating on the road and those sharing it with you. For example, I traveled Five Mile Road last week next to a young woman who was sending a text message while trying to drive. She had neither hand on the steering wheel (I can only presume she was ‘steering’ with her knees) and rarely glanced up at the road ahead. As a result, she faded into my lane twice and nearly rear-ended the driver in front of her when we all came to a red light at State Road. This type of reckless, irresponsible and ignorant behavior will surely cost lives if it is allowed to continue (and I’m certain it will, particularly among younger drivers). “If your life is so busy and important that you feel you must have a cell phone with you in your car, then at least be smart and considerate enough to pull off the road to make or take a call – and never try to text someone while you’re driving! Sooner or later it will dearly cost you, or far more importantly, someone else.” M.M. “Research has definitively shown that driving while using a cell phone has a similar risk to DUI, even with a headset. We have banned driving while impaired everywhere, even if only slightly impaired at .08 percent. You are just as dead after you have been hit by a distracted cell phone user. I think this is a nobrainer. I resist the urge to answer my phone in the car and I never make calls unless I pull over.” F.S.D.

Will the $12 trillion bailout package, the $1 trillion health care transformation, and steep energy taxes on our staple industries truly jumpstart the economy? Even the White House estimates a $9 trillion budget deficit within a decade, and everyone knows that accruing this much debt during a recession is fatal for our nation’s economy and credibility. Here in Ohio, families are tightening their budgets in response to the recession. I strongly believe that if our constituents are making sacrifices during this economic turmoil, then state government should follow suit by eliminating waste and ensuring that state programs

operate efficiently. However, instead of reducing careless spending among state agencies and Medicaid, our colleagues across the aisle favored the status quo and renewed government waste in the budget. In fact, the budget actually increases state spending by $1 billion compared to last fiscal year. As a result, the services that Ohioans do rely on, such as libraries and home care options for the elderly, suffered severe cutbacks. How can Gov. Strickland and House Democrats justify cutting essential funding for some services while maintaining inefficient funding for others? What Ohio needs is true leadership that will identify pitfalls and take the nec-

When our memory chips fade Talking to a friend of mine today, he commented on how we are becoming a “Delete Society.” The idea intrigued me. His contention is that much – if not most – of our communication is now being done, on a daily basis, via E-mail and texting. It is very easy to delete these from our computers and thus from our lives. With every deletion, however, we risk losing important pieces of our existence that, in the past, would be kept and handed down. Allow me to elaborate. I received an E-mail from my mother-in-law stating that my wife’s uncle passed away. The cause, the date and other details were contained in that e-mail. In the past, we would have received a letter that would probably be kept in a box somewhere for future generations to discover. Instead, it is deleted, and subsequently gone forever. For centuries, letters have been handed down that provide not only valuable genealogical information, but snapshots of life as our ancestors knew it. Today, we marvel that our ancestors could easily die from pneumonia, in a world without antibiotics. Tomorrow (I hope)

our grandchildren may marvel that we could die of cancer. Photographs are even more subject to permanent loss. I Bruce Healey know that I receive Community often photographs of Press guest events we columnist have participated in, and they remain attached to Emails that, unless I am scrupulously careful, end up getting lost or deleted. Even when we do transfer them from the Emails, they go into a digital file. We currently have hundreds, if not thousands, of anonymous photographs on our computer hard drives. Sometimes I will take a memory stick, load it with the best photographs and have them printed, and put them in an album with captions. More often than not, however, they sit in a digital file, awaiting the first computer meltdown to come my way, sending the pictures to sleep with the digital fishes. Our parents and grandparents would have taken fewer pictures, had them printed and

I would like to work with my fellow legislators to reduce waste and implement a business-friendly tax code that encourages job creation.

selected a few to put in an album (picture development and printing used to be a fairly expensive process). Only a natural disaster such as a tornado or a fire could deprive future generations of the pleasure of seeing the lives of their grandparents and great-grandparents evolve. From this perspective, then, we are going back in time. For most people, tracing lineage or finding snippets of our ancestor’s lives before the 18th century is almost impossible. The vast majority of people led lives of quiet desperation, and simply trying to survive was so all consuming that they had little time or inclination to think of future generations. Besides, almost none of them could read or write anyway. So, for relatively brief period, we have been blessed with photographs on paper and the written word that combine to give us an idea from whence we came. Sadly, we are reverting to a time where so much knowledge was lost between generations. The irony in this is, of course, that we are living in “the age of information.” Bruce A. Healey is a resident of Blue Ash.

Dilly Café has grown from a small sandwich shop to a restaurant and gourmet shop during its time in the Mariemont Strand. “We wanted to build the place we’d like to go to if we weren’t working here,” Chuck said. He bought the place with his father-in-law 20 years ago and said he didn’t expect it to turn into a career. Both new and regular customers come for the

The newly-renovated Indian Hill Rangers station not only features a more spacious design, but new technology as well. The new dispatch center is a prime example of that, with more space to work and a new computer terminal with an ergonomic design.

Ranger station gets $4.1 million facelift By Rob Dowdy

It’s been a long time coming, but the Indian Hill Rangers are finally moving into their newly-renovated home. The Indian Hill administration building, which is also the Ranger station, has been under construction throughout the year in order to update the facilities. The $4.1 million renovation began in January and is expected to be completed by the end of the year. The building project’s first phase focused

on the ranger portion of the building, and is nearly complete. It features new technology and more space for the Rangers. Patrol officer Keith Lang said while the Rangers have only been in their updated building for a few days, the changes are drastic. There are new holding areas for suspects, an expanded training room, more efficient space for evidence storage, a new dispatch center and more offices for detectives. Even the locker rooms are bigger. “It’s a completely new world,” he said. “It’s a wonderful change.” In the former space, rangers would

sometimes have to sit with individual suspects to keep them from speaking with each other. Now, with new holding areas, the suspects can be separated, which is safer both for those being questioned as well as those asking the questions. Not all the changes are apparent now, as portions of the newlyredesigned ranger station is occupied by the village administration, which has been displaced as work continues on their portion of the building. However, Lang said it’s still a major upgrade for the rangers and the village as a whole.

When people turn into sheep For sheep to be sheep is admirable. That’s their true nature. Sheep are never extolled today or in the scriptures as being clever or courageous. They seem more helpless than resourceful. They frequently wander off and get lost and are easy prey for predators. When in trouble, they usually panic and bleat for help from the shepherd. Sheep are not very smart. Yet, who can blame a sheep for being a sheep? They live what they are. What would be troubling would be to see a bird or a human try to live as a sheep. Especially a human. We’ve been created with a rational nature. We are to grow, develop insight and wisdom, possess a mind that enables us to seek and recog-

nize truth and have the courage to live by it. Humans are supposed to need other human shepherds less and less as they mature. When immature, and still growing, we need parents, disciplinarians and teachers – guides outside ourselves. When we grow up – if we grow up – our guidance comes chiefly from within ourselves; a well-formed conscience and sense of responsibility. Guides outside of us never become completely unimportant, but much less necessary. A sad thing seems to be happening. Too many people seem to be acting as sheep. Sheeple are people who act like sheep. When that occurs, we don’t use our minds to study problems thor-

oughly and understand them effectively. We stop looking for truth. We graze on sound bites, slogans and little bits of information lying on the ground that taste good. When we are turning into sheeple, we lose sight of truth and priorities. We become easy prey for manipulation by politicians, advertisers, bureaucrats, and sometimes even by people we call religious leaders. Our shepherds are called spin doctors – false shepherds who have no interest in the common good, us, or the truth, only their own agenda. As sheeple we have a strong flock instinct. We need to think and act as everybody else. It’s said that the instincts and logic of a mob gradually become lower than the individuals that com-

prise the mob. We turn our minds over to others. Sheeple are dazzled by words and forget justice; are moved by emotions and forget logic. We believe peers, advertisers, politicians and celebrities about what is important in life. We acquiesce to anyone who claims to speak for God. The masses of people have been pictured as a huge pyramid. Most of us are depicted toward the bottom somewhere, and the numbers become fewer as the pyramid narrows and ascends. Psychologists such as Abraham Maslow urge us to become selfactualized and move upward. That means to grow in knowledge and personal awareness of our own state and truths of reality. The journey upward is very difficult, but possible. Great spiritual

teachers such as Father Lou Jesus Christ told Guntzelman us what happens Perspectives when we are transformed from sheeple to people, “ … you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” Free from what? Free from a flock mentality. Free from not recognizing our dignity. Free from ignorance, deception and being used by others. Free from our defenses and illusions in order to become our truest self. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Reach him at columns@community or contact him directly at P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242. Please include a mailing address or fax number if you wish for him to respond.

Shipping and handling charges alert Ads for products on TV and in print that don’t disclose the shipping and handling charges are becoming increasingly common. Such charges should be carefully considered before ordering because sometimes they can be quite substantial. That’s what a Westwood woman has learned. Sue LaRue has been analyzing ads and found several that either don’t disclose the charge or do so in very small print. “I think they’re saying two things. I think they’re saying ‘free shipping’ or ‘plus shipping,’ but they’re

placed the order for two of the items, she just got a printout without the prices. “I agreed to pay $39.98. The shipping and handling was $65.80, but I didn’t know that till I got the package in the mail,” LaRue said. The packing slip showed the total cost came to more than $100 – something she says should have been disclosed upfront. She checked ads for products from different companies and found this is becoming more common. One ad touted the product as only costing $14.99, but the small print at the

saw on TV. “It said on TV it was $19.99 plus shipping. I went online and ordered it. No place did it say how much the shipping was,” she said. But, even after she

back,” LaRue said. So, I contacted the company LaRue had ordered from and was told they don’t disclose the shipping and handling charges in the ad because the same ad is used in Canada and charges will be quite different there. They maintain they do disclose the charges before the transaction is completed – and after the state sales taxes are added. But, LaRue said she never saw that disclosure. And, while you can cancel your order and get back your money, you can’t get back the shipping costs.

bottom said unless you cancel you’ll be charged three monthly payments of $39.99. After LaRue complained to the company about the shipping charges, a representative agreed to give her a $15 credit. But that still means the items she wanted cost her $40, and the shipping and handling cost $50 – more than the items themselves. “I just feel like they’re deceptive and if people aren’t paying attention they’re going to end up spending a lot of money they may not be able to get

Bottom line, carefully watch out for shipping and handling charges in both TV and print ads. If they are not disclosed in the ad, be sure to look for the charges before you place your order. As we’ve seen sometimes those charges can be more than the items themselves.

Relish your fresh peppers this season

My husband Frank and I went to an A m i s h country produce auction in B a i n bridge, Ohio, near The Seven Rita Caves, at invitaHeikenfeld the tion of Rita’s kitchen f r i e n d s Bert and Bob Villing. It was something to see. As we approached the auction shelter, we saw horse-drawn wagons with huge amounts of pumpkins, melons and produce enter the graveled area. I understood that folks could bid on the whole wagonload. Inside the shelter you could walk around and check out the produce in smaller units, like a bushel of squash, three pecks of cucumbers, even up to 100 or so pumpkins and gourds. The little Amish boys were so cute – running around barefoot with suspendered overalls and hats.

Bert and I bought some beautiful red and green peppers. I couldn’t wait to get home to make Bert’s red pepper relish. I also made stuffed peppers for supper, with rice, lamb, tomato sauce and seasonings.


Bert’s red pepper relish

Rita’s rendition of Bert’s pepper relish. 1 cup sugar (more to taste) 11⁄2 teaspoons each: mustard seeds, celery seeds and dry mustard

6 cups of finely diced red bell peppers (or green, yellow, etc.) 11⁄2 cups finely diced onions Boiling water 1 ⁄2 cup diced jalapeños (opt.)

Put drained pepper mixture into brine and cook for five minutes. Pour into hot jars, clean rims and seal. Process in boiling water bath five minutes. You can also just cook this up, cool, put in freezer containers and freeze.

No real recipe, but here are Bert’s guidelines slightly adapted by me. Makes 7 to 8 half pints. Measure ingredients after dicing.

Grind up peppers and onions in food processor, blender or just chop fine. Put in bowl and pour boiling water to cover. Let sit five minutes, then drain. Make brine.

Bring to boil:

2 cups vinegar (I used cider, but clear is OK)

I love her dumplings with the wonderful cinnamon flavor. They are always the first thing to go at any of our events. This is for Nancy, who began cooking at age 11. “My mother was a wonderful cook and my best friend. She passed away last year,” she wrote. Nancy wanted to re-create her Mom’s dumpling recipe which used brown sugar and cinnamon. Nancy said her Mom’s sauce was a thin vanilla sauce using cinnamon. I’ve adapted this only slightly.

1 double pie crust 8 Golden Delicious apples, peeled and cored (I’ve used whatever apples I had on hand) 4 teaspoons butter Mix the following and set aside: 1 cup granulated or brown sugar 1 generous tablespoon cinnamon Divide the prepared pie crust into eight equal pieces. Roll out each piece into the shape of a square about 6 to 8 inches. To test the size, place an apple in the center of it and see if you can bring the 4 corners up to meet at the top. Place 1 peeled and cored apple in the center of one of the squares of rolled pie crust.

Fill the cavity with some of the sugar/cinnamon mixture. Dot the top of the sugar with 1⁄2 tsp. butter. Bring one corner of the pastry up over the top of the apple. Take the opposite corner and overlap it over the first one. Moisten to seal these two together. Repeat with the last two corners of the pastry. Moisten to seal the last two corners together. Place the 8 dumplings in a sprayed baking dish.

Cinnamon sauce:

Combine the following syrup ingredients and cook for three minutes. If you can’t find cinnamon hearts, use a teaspoon of cinnamon and a drop or two of red food coloring if you want. 11⁄2 cups sugar 1 1 ⁄2 tablespoons cornstarch 2 cups water 3 tablespoons lemon juice 7-8 cinnamon decorations (little cinnamon Valentine hearts) or more to taste 1 teaspoon vanilla (Rita’s addition) Pour the syrup over the dumplings in the baking dish. If you want, baste as they bake. Bake at 375 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes until well browned and a fork pressed into the apple tests soft.

CSO attendance increases For the second consecutive year, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra has experienced an increase in attendance at concerts. The 2008-2009 season closed with a sold-out pavilion at Riverbend Music Center for the Aug. 1 Pops con-

cert, completing a year that saw average attendance for CSO subscription concerts at Music Hall increase by 6 percent. Fueling this growth is a 23-percent jump in total single tickets and a two-percent increase in total sub-

scription seats. Overall attendance across all of the CSO’s concert offerings (CSO and Pops at Music Hall, Lollipop Family Concerts, CSO Chamber Players, New Year’s Eve and Pops at Riverbend) rose by three percent.

Planning for your children As a parent, the last thing I want, if something happens to me, is a bad situation where my children are surrounded by people they don’t know, who don’t have their best interest at heart or who are fighting over raising them. Consider how a celebrity like Michael Jackson left his children exposed to a fight among his family, the children’s nanny, the biological mother and perhaps others. The lesson is clear. You must name guardians for your minor children in the event of your death or incapacity. Failing to do so puts your children at risk. With the following steps you can assure your children will be provided and cared for as you want and intend. Secure your children’s financial future – Providing sufficient financial resources for your children’s care and upbringing if something happens to you is your responsibility. Whether it’s through life insurance, savings or some other means, take action to put a plan in place. To protect what your children will receive, establish a trust for any life insurance benefits and/or savings that your appointed guardians will use in raising your children. If your estate is large

enough, plan the trust to avoid estate taxes. Identify your children’s guardian David Lefton – Believe Community it or not, Press guest most parhave columnist ents n o t named a guardian and at least one alternate for their minor child(ren). Consider some of the following qualities to help you select a guardian: • available time; • physical and mental ability; • genuine concern for your children’s welfare; • a good relationship with your children; • agreement with your moral and religious beliefs; • financial resources; • geographic proximity to where your children now reside. Legally document your decisions – Parents too often agree upon a guardian for their children and even make their wishes known to their families, yet, they have not expressed their wishes in their estate planning documents. Not detailing your decisions in a legally binding

document means they may not be followed. You are potentially placing your children in a situation where every family member has equal priority of guardianship. This leaves the decision about the care of your children to the legal system and a judge who doesn’t know you or your kids. Legal documentation is particularly important if you want a friend to care for your children, as courts will almost always choose a family member over a friend. Don’t let the complexities of financial or guardianship decisions prevent you from completing your estate planning. An estate planning attorney who has worked with many families can use that experience to help you make decisions. An open discussion of your personal concerns with a lawyer who understands your financial and legal situation can assure your piece of mind – and your children’s future. David H. Lefton is an estate planning and probate attorney who lives in Symmes Township. He is a partner in the law firm of Barron, Peck, Bennie & Schlemmer on Oakley Square. For more information contact David at 513-721-1350 or

Chabad to host Rosh Hashanah services As in years past, Chabad Jewish Center urges all Jews to participate in High Holiday services this year. “If you are not affiliated with any synagogue, and/or are not planning to join any for services, we invite you to join us on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and celebrate your New Year with us,” Chabad Jewish Center director Rabbi Yisroel Mangel said. Mangel describes Chabad’s services as “refreshing and easy to follow.” Per the distinct Chabad style that has emerged across the nation over the past 20 years,

many of traditional prayers are recited or sung by the congregation in unison out of English-Hebrew prayer books, along with commentary and insights provided by the rabbi that allow active crowd participation. Age-appropriate, interactive children’s services and programs led by Rabbi Berel & Zipporah Cohen Chabad’s youth program coordinators will also be conducted, while a professional cantor from Detroit, Mich., will lead the main services utilizing popular traditional Ashkenazic and Sephardic melodies. Chabad’s Rosh

Hashanah services begin at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 18, and resume at 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday mornings. Yom Kippur services will begin at 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 27, and resume at 9 a.m. Monday, Sept. 28. A festive, full-course holiday dinner will follow the Rosh Hashanah evening services on Sept. 18, by reservations only. A “break-fast” will likewise follow the Yom Kippur services. Services are free and open to the public (donations appreciated). All services will be held at Chabad Jewish Center, 3977 Hunt

Road in Blue Ash. Log onto or call 7935200 or e-mail for a schedule of services. “There is palpable, family-friendly warmth at our services that melts away any embarrassment for those unfamiliar with Hebrew or new to communal prayer,” added Rabbi Mangel. “The High Holidays are an experience all Jews should actively take part in,” said Rabbi Mangel. “We open our doors to the entire Jewish community regardless of background or level of observance.”

Course winds through historic downtown neighborhood streets and wooded, paved trails through two river front parks.

With summer a fading memory and fall right in our face, you’ll soon be finding yourself with a nice collection of spent flowers, frosted annual and perennial foliage, falling leaves, maybe a few extra grass clippings – all perfect additions for the compost pile. What? You don’t have a compost pile? Well, let’s take a look at how you can get started! Composting is a practical and convenient way to handle yard trimmings such as leaves, excess grass, chipped brush, plant cuttings, etc., and it’s a better option than sending this yard waste to the landfills. The results of your composting efforts will be one of the best soil amendments that no money can buy. By combining your yard trimmings and other clean yard or vegetable wastes with soil or garden fertilizer (synthetic or natural), keeping the pile properly moistened and turned, the compost pile begins to heat and cook as the bacteria and fungi break down the ingredients. It’s almost like a science project, and the equation is: carbon + nitrogen + water + air = COMPOST!

What can I compost?

Leaves, grass clippings, plant refuse, wood chips, sod, livestock manures, vegetative kitchen scraps, weeds, straw, pine needles, dead plants, aquarium water/algae and plants, some newspapers, wood ash, egg shells, coffee grounds and lots more. Stay away from meat, bones, dairy products, cat/dog feces, cooking oils, things sprayed with pesticides, even insects and diseased plants. NOTE: Although grass clippings can be added to the compost pile (and make a great addition), return them back to the soil/turf where they belong. Clippings returned to the soil/turf can generate as much as 25 percent of your lawn’s total fertilizer needs. So don’t bag it; return those clippings back to the turf (unless you absolutely need to add clippings to the compost pile)!

Where to locate my compost pile?

Find an out of sight area that is well-drained, away from tree roots, not in the shade, and accessible with a garden hose. Remove any

sod underneath so the pile will be in direct contact with the soil.

Do I need a compost bin?

Composting does not require a bin, but bins do help to keep the pile neat and easier to handle. Bins need to be at least 3x3x3 feet to heat properly. A 5x5x5 foot bin is a much nicer size to work with. Ready made bins are available, or can be made with concrete blocks, chicken wire, fencing, wooden slats, etc. The sides must be designed to allow proper air flow to the pile. You may even consider the compost tumblers (best for smaller yards) for ease of turning the pile.

How do I create the compost pile?

There are many methods to building a compost pile, including simply piling up the yard waste and letting Mother Nature do her thing. It may take longer, but eventually, the waste will break down. Here are a few ways to speed up the process and get that pile “cooking.” Layer the materials you’ll

be using in your compost pile. 68 inches of materials, a little fertilRon Wilson izer (synthetic or In the garden natural), some garden soil, moisten, layer again, and again until reaching the 3-to-5-foot height. Now it’s up to you to help monitor proper moisture levels as the composting begins. Turning the pile will begin about one week after the initial pile is made. Move the inside of the pile to the outside. When your pile is really cooking, it will heat to 140160 degrees in the middle! Your finished compost will be dark in color, crumbly in nature, and have an “earthy” smell. The pile should be reduced to 1⁄3 to 1⁄2 its original size. And yes, the process will be a bit slower during the winter season. For details, visit http:// Ron Wilson is marketing manager for Natorp’s Inc. Garden Stores and is the garden expert for 55KRC-AM and Local 12. You can reach him at columns@

The ABCs of baby boomer retirement planning


f you are one of America’s 78.2 million baby boomers, you are likely considering what ideal retirement will look like, and the steps required to achieve it. With the current economic downturn, many boomers are finding it necessary to revisit their initial retirement goals. According to the Social Security Administration, today’s retirees count on corporate pensions and Social Security for 56 percent of their retirement income. With a few minor adjustments, some careful planning and a positive attitude, the other 44 percent is attainable. Consider the following ABCs of retirement planning:

A: assess your financial plan and budget. • Begin to assess your basic retirement income sources such as a 401(k) plan, IRA, and life insurance plans. • How much will you need to retire? Determine this by creating a budget that will enable you to pay your monthly expenses such

as food, heat, rent and transportation. Consider expenses that may increase such as health insurance and prescription medicines. At the same time, consider those that may decrease, such as work-related and educational spending. • Health care coverage is necessary in supplementing your financial foundation and these costs can add up fast. It’s important to have an adequate plan both before and after retirement. After age 65 you are eligible for Medicare coverage. But what if you want to retire before then? Your employer may offer a plan for retiring employees, or you may have to look into private coverage, so be sure to consider this. • Take into account variable expenses such as tax liabilities on your home, illness or the care of elderly parents. Other, often underestimated, variables include gifts, clothing, recreational expenses, and increases in costs of living. For valuable retirement planning resources

and projected trends in costs of living visit

B: begin to explore other retirement income options. • Determine the amount of guaranteed retirement income you already have. Examples of these are cash savings, corporate pension plans, home equity, or annuity-type investments. • Are you married? If so, how will that affect your retirement budget? • Pay attention to how your retirement funds are earning money. Are they structured for maximum returns? It’s crucial that you continually assess these funds. • Decide when to begin Social Security benefits. According to AARP, for each year you put off collecting your benefits between ages 62 and 70, you increase your payments by 8 percent. • Calculate your potential monthly retirement budget based on your estimated income weighed against your expenses. At minimum, you need enough

retirement income to cover basic living expenses for your lifetime. • If your initial assessment requires additional income, consider part-time work during retirement, or perhaps selling your larger home for a more comfortable, carefree condo.

C: consider life insurance - the foundation of a solid retirement plan. • f you don’t have a life insurance policy, get one. Life insurance not only helps to leave a legacy for generations to come, it will protect your loved ones and help provide them with financial security once you’re gone. • Consult an expert in order to find the right life insurance for you. Start planning your retirement today. With a little strategy and the right attitude, you can build the financial security you need to live a successful, happy retirement. Courtesy of ARAcontent

There is a full schedule for the rest of the trip including visits to the Knesset, Masada, the Dead Sea, Yad Vashem and more. Residents will be in Jerusalem, Haifa and spend two nights on a kibbutz. Throughout the mission, we will be sending photos and blogging daily. Why? Because this mission is not just about those who are a part of it, rather it is for everyone at Cedar Village. Those who cannot travel are still engaged and involved in the experience and they will have the opportunity to participate to whatever extent is possible for them.

Layer the two felt squares together on your table for a windblown, just-fallen look. What to do with the felt leaves you just cut out? Create a harvest-themed wreath with a classic yet contemporary look. Decorate an18-inch grapevine wreath with miniature lights, felt leaves and any other favorite fall items you have around your house or yard.

2. Classic adornments with surprising details

Need a great fall centerpiece? Rethink the classic pumpkin and try decorating with unique embellishments. For a beautiful fallthemed pumpkin, choose gold-toned wire and bend to create fun leaves and vines, attaching to the pumpkin’s top. If you’re looking for a Halloween theme, decorate the face of the pumpkin with masks and feathers to create different characters like a witch, owl or masquerader. One way to save money and create a cherished piece of decor you can use year after year is to decorate a reusable pumpkin like Fun-Kins. These light artificial pumpkins are easy to work with and sure to become wonderful works of art.

3. Fall food made fantastically fun

ies are tantalizing no matter what, but how about taking them a step further? Serve them kabob-style with marshmallows, fruit and a drizzle of icing to make them irresistible. Arrange on a tray for a beautiful presentation and watch them disappear in minutes. If you’re looking for a dessert with a theme, use uniquely shaped silicone baking pans. Try baking brownies in a jack-o’-lantern muffin pan. After they cool, pop them out, turn over and decorate their faces.

4. Double your fun with homemade costumes

If a costume party is in your future, you’ll need something fun that stands out. The homemade costume is officially back and allows your creativity to shine. Brainstorm with your child to figure out what you both want to be for Halloween and then hit up a craft store to get the necessary supplies. What’s the newest trend for costumes? Two-in-one options that have the ability to quickly convert from one character to the next. For example, a sparkling dress can serve as the base for both an astronaut and a robot. With simple accessories and removable changes, your little girl can attend one party as a robot and then zoom off to another as an astronaut. Plus this is a fun alternative to traditional girls’ costumes without losing the glitz. Reversible options also work for double-duty costumes. For example, try keeping one side of a cape black so you can be a witch and the other side gold. Add a feathered boa and you can become a queen in an instant.

Food is a must at any fall gathering. When the temperature cools, many of us are turning on our ovens to bake delightful must-taste treats. Rich and decadent brown-

Roofs with peace of mind


any people remember hurricane Ike that blew through the tri-state last September, causing widespread damage from trees and peeling shingles from roofs. Ike was just the first of five major storms that have caused damage to homes, keeping insurance companies as well as roofing companies busy. But homeowners need to be cautious about who they have bid the work. Because of the extreme volume in work the

storms have produced, many “storm-chasing” companies have moved into the area. These companies hire men to canvass neighborhoods knocking on doors and promising “free” roofs with no out of pocket deductibles. That is a form of insurance fraud and should be avoided at all costs. These men work on commission only and will seldom climb onto a roof. A homeowner can never be sure of the exact extent of damage or the true cost, due to the fact

that if this type of estimator does not sell a roof, he does not get paid! Your insurance company will have an approved vendor list of reputable local roofers that you can call on for an estimate. In addition, Angie’s List and the Better Business Bureau can also be an excellent source for a roofers name and number. One such reputable and local roofer is; Rooftime, winners of the Press Communities Readers Choice award for 2009. “We have been repair-

All of our estimates are free and include color digital pictures of what we find. We are on most insurance companies approved vendor lists, meaning our work and bids are pre-

Tips to save your home, life in case of fire

Every year more than 500,000 fires occur in homes across the nation. To help protect your home and your loved ones, the experts have come up with the following easy-to-follow tips that could make all the difference.

Protect your home


ny home is susceptible to fire, and the first step to keeping your family safe is to purchase two essential items. • Fire alarms: Fire alarms are your first line of defense when it comes to fires. Make sure that you have one installed on every level of your home even the attic. To get the most protection, install one in, or near, every bedroom. Fire alarms use three different methods to detect fire: photoelectric, which responds to smoke; ionization, which responds to smoke and gas; and thermal, which responds to heat. When choosing an alarm, select one that utilizes more than one of the above methods. Once the fire alarms are installed, be

sure to test them once a month and change the batteries twice a year. A good reminder is to change the batteries when you change your clocks for daylight savings. • Fire extinguisher: Every home should have a fire extinguisher, specifically one that is labeled as “ABC” which means it can be used on all types of fires. Additionally, bigger is not always better when it comes to these products. It is important to select a size that fits within your appropriate storage location. Experts suggest keeping a fire extinguisher within 10 feet of the stove, on the same side of the kitchen that has the exit. Many fires occur in the kitchen, such and keeping an extinguisher nearby can help you contain the damage. Once you have selected your fire extinguisher purchase the desired number plus one additional extinguisher for you to try out. Remember, you don’t want to have to learn how to use the extinguisher while there is a fire. Courtesy of ARAcontent

Don’t let this happen to you or a loved one


f you snore and have excessive daytime sleepiness, there is a high probability that you have Obstructive Sleep Apnea, a sometimes lifethreatening sleep disorder. According to the National Sleep Foundation’s “Sleep in America” poll, 60 percent of Americans have driven while feeling sleepy and 37 percent admit to actually having fallen asleep behind the wheel in the past year. It has been reported that drowsy drivers are up to 10 times more likely to have an automobile accident, more dangerous than drunk drivers. An estimated 1 in 20 Americans have sleep apnea, a condition where the airway collapses during sleep, causing the person to stop breathing and awaken multiple times every hour with a gasp. This leads to chronic daytime sleepiness and if untreated, greatly increases chances of a heart attack or stroke. How do you know if you have sleep apnea? At Cincinnati Dental Sleep Medicine, Dr. Timothy Kitzmiller uses a number of screening tools to assess the likelihood of sleep disordered breathing. During your initial consultation you will be asked the following questions: • Do you snore on most nights? • Has anyone reported that you stop breathing or gasp in your sleep? • Is your neck size

They will also review your score on the Epworth Sleepiness Scale to determine your level of daytime sleepiness. If you answer yes to two or more of these screening questions and score a 10 or greater on the Epworth, Dr. Kitzmiller will put together a plan for your proper diagnosis and treatment including CPAP alternative Oral Appliance Therapy.
