BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
FORREST SELLERS/THE COMMUNITY PRESS
Monica Hickey, left, Kimberly Buczek and Jennifer Howell with Indian Hill Performing Arts have been instrumental in broadening the reach of performing arts in the community.

Performing arts program expands into community Forrest Sellers email@example.com
An Indian Hill arts program has extended its reach beyond the classroom. Indian Hill Performing Arts is now a community-wide program offering everything form voice lessons to piano training. “It’s broader now,” said Lisa Harris, who started the pro-
gram at Indian Hill High School in 2003. Approved as a 501(c)3 at the start of the year, the group has formed community partnerships with a number of organizations including Indian Hill Church, Armstrong Chapel United Methodist Church and and the Greenacres Foundation among others. “We’re now able to offer
opportunities to students outside of the (Indian Hill school) district,” said Kimberly Buczek, executive director of Indian Hill Performing Arts. “There is more of an opportunity for growth.” For example, the Village Voices an a cappella group formed in the fall has members not only from Indian Hill but Mason as well.
Harris, who is president of the board of directors for Indian Hill Performing Arts, said the goal in initially forming the program was to provide after school arts enrichment and “to support the performing arts.” That mission continues with a professional staff of community members, school administrators and business professionals providing support.
“We are here to show how arts education is part of our culture,” Buczek said. Programs are offered for ages 4 and up and range from an introduction to dance class to private violin lessons. Additionally, musical camps are offered during the summer. For information go online to http://bit.ly/1PCTLgW.
Candidates cite services, finances Jeanne Houck firstname.lastname@example.org
Finding ways to provide top-notch services while keeping a close watch on the village’s pocketbook is an issue of importance cited by candidate after candidate for Indian Hill Village Council. Eight people – five of them incumbents – are vying for seven seats on village council - two-year terms that begin Dec. 1. Challengers John B. Armstrong, Donald C. McGraw and David Turner will take on incumbents Vice Mayor Daniel J. Feigelson, Molly Barber, Melissa S. Cowan, Mark Kuenning and Abbot A. Thayer Tuesday, Nov. 3. Incumbents Mayor Keith Rabenold and Laura Raines did not file for re-election to Indian Hill Village Council, all seven seats of which come up for election every two years. Here’s a look at the candidates and their answers to the following two questions, for which they were allowed up to 150 words per answer. 1. What are the issues facing Indian Hill and how would you handle them? 2. Why do you want to serve on village council and what qualifications do you have that make you a good choice for council? In their answers, some candidates refer to the Indian Hill Mayor’s Nominating

Committee, a process that has been in place since 1941 in which the current mayor seats members of the committee, who in turn interview and endorse candidates. This year the committee endorsed all of the candidates except Turner. » Armstrong, 68, is co-founder of the Wow Business Advisory, which counsels privately owned businesses. He’s never held elective political office. 1. “One of the biggest issues facing Indian Hill is to maintain its historical high levels of safety and services to its residents. These levels must be continued in light of the reduction in local government funding and the loss of the Ohio estate tax revenues. “I believe in keeping a tight budget and working closely with our great team of public employees to preserve our outstanding community.” 2. “My family has lived in Indian Hill for 26 years. We have enjoyed the great benefits here and I believe that it is time for me to give back to the village. “In my career I have been the president of The Crocker Fels Co. and Chester Labs Inc. since 1986. I practiced law in Cincinnati from 1973 to 1986 and was the solicitor of the city of Silverton. “I have served on several corporate boards.” » Barber, 57, is human resources man-

She was elected to Indian Hill Village Council in 2011 and 2013. 1. “The village of Indian Hill is a unique place to live, (and) to protect that, we must continue to look for opportunities to improve the efficiency of our resources to ensure the services we provide are sustainable. “I am honored to be nominated again by the Mayor’s Nominating Committee and am committed to preserving and enhancing the distinctive qualities that make Indian Hill so special and building upon its tradition of excellence.” 2. “I have served on numerous committees including finance, public works, water works and safety. I am also the council’s representative on the board of the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments. “I also served eight years on the board of education for Indian Hill (Exempted Village) Schools and was the board representative on the Indian Hill Public Schools Foundation. I am an active committee member of Armstrong Chapel United Methodist Church as well as the Indian Hill Historical Society. “I have also served as a cabinet member on the United Way of Greater Cincinnati campaign and also am actively involved with the Off the Streets program.” » Cowan, 56, practiced labor and em-

ployment law with Dinsmore & Shohl before leaving to raise her three sons. She was elected to Indian Hill Village Council in 2013. 1. “The main challenge facing the village is to continue to be able to provide the exceptional service residents have come to expect while trying to keep taxes as low as possible.” 2. “Having grown up in Indian Hill, I am passionate about preserving Indian Hill’s special character, and I enjoy giving back to a community in which I have lived for over 44 years. “On council, I am the chairman of the Water Works and Utility Deregulation committees and serve on the Safety Committee, Buildings and Grounds Committee and the Grand Valley Advisory Committee. “Also, I am the council liaison to the Green Areas Advisory Committee. “This experience in addition to my knowledge of the village past and present, I believe are helpful to my service on council.” » Feigelson, 56, is chief financial officer and a co-founder/principal of NAI Bergman, a regional commercial real-estate brokerage, property management and real-estate investment firm. He was elected to Indian Hill Village Council in 2009, 2011 and 2013.

Council Continued from Page 1A
1. â€œCouncil must continually strive to balance the expectation of high-level service delivery to our community while remaining fiscally responsible on behalf of our taxpayers. â€œWe must continue to monitor changes in state tax legislation and the impact it has on Indian Hill and we must challenge our superb team of professional public employees to continue to deliver bestin-class-service to our residents. â€œFinally, we must remain committed to preserving and enhancing the special characteristics
which all residents enjoy and which make Indian Hill such a unique, comfortable and safe place to live and raise a family.â€? 2. â€œI have been an active volunteer in the community for many years. In addition to my various roles on Indian Hill council, including most recently that of vice mayor, I have served as chairman and treasurer of the Indian Hill Public Schools Foundation, president and treasurer of the Indian Hill Schools Booster Association and treasurer of the Indian Hill Football Club. â€œOutside of Indian Hill I currently hold board positions on several for-profit and not-for-profit organizations.â€?
Âť Kuenning, 60, is president and CEO of Global Drilling Suppliers, Inc. He was elected to Indian Hill Village Council in 2011 and 2013. 1. â€œAll municipalities face fiscal challenges, including Indian Hill. Although we are fortunate to have a strong tax base, we always have to be aware of and react to mandates from the state of Ohio. â€œWhile working effectively with our state representatives, the council helps to represent and protect our interests. Also, we work very hard to ensure the wise use of our tax dollars. â€œWe are always looking for ways to do more with less while maintaining the
high quality of services that our residents deserve.â€? 2. â€œIndian Hill is a special place in which to live and raise a family. The Mayorâ€™s Nominating Committee did a great job of finding a slate of outstanding council candidates who offer a wide range of talents and who demonstrate a commitment to serving the community. â€œI am honored to be recommended by that committee for another term on council. With my financial and business management experience and other volunteer experience with a number of local charitable organizations, I look forward to serving the village to address the challenges that lie ahead of us.â€? Âť McGraw, 58, a retired U.S. Army colonel who is now president of Planet Products Corp., a small manufacturing company in Blue Ash. Heâ€™s not before held elective political office. 1. â€œThe village has weathered some significant financial issues over
the last several years and we should continue to keep a keen eye on its overall financial well-being while at the same time maintaining and improving the first-class services we have come to expect. â€œGrowing up in the village, I have a deep appreciation for what the village means to its residents and I welcome the opportunity to continue the excellent work of council to maintain the integrity and quality of life so important to its residents.â€? 2. â€œI grew up in Indian Hill and benefited from its riches. Serving in other capacities (U.S. Army) for 30-plus years afforded me the opportunity to give back nationally and globally, but not yet to Indian Hill. â€œMy interest is in maintaining the integrity, uniqueness, financial balance and efficient operations of our village. My skills in operations, personnel, and financial management have been honed by experience with escalating responsibilities and leadership expectations. â€œI believe these skills will be beneficial in policy review, financial stewardship and support of the village services and law enforcement.â€? Âť Thayer, 62, is an attorney with Dinsmore & Shohl. He was elected to Indian Hill Village Council in 2013. 1. â€œThe biggest challenge is to continue providing the top-notch services that the residents expect despite cutbacks in state funding and the loss of the estate tax.â€? 2. â€œI believe that public service is important and that my 35 years as a municipal finance attorney and two years as a council member give me valuable insights which will make me a good council member.â€?
Âť Turner, 60, is a clinical neuropsychologist and president of The Rehab Continuum and The Counseling Source, which, between them, provide occupational therapy, physical therapy and mentalhealth services to school systems, the elderly and the developmentally disabled throughout Greater Cincinnati. Heâ€™s never held elective public office. 1. â€œThe issues facing the village include the continuation of responsible fiscal management, attending judiciously to providing the highest-quality police, fire and municipal services by ensuring adequate compensation and benefit packages for those who serve us and the opening of the electoral process such that our village council members are not pre-selected and then confirmed in skewed elections but actually chosen by a fully and fairly informed electorate.â€? 2. â€œI want to serve on the council because I believe I can make meaningful contributions to the village. I feel I am qualified by virtue of my unique perspective on the electoral process in the village. â€œl also feel qualified by virtue of my education and life experience which include having earned a Ph.D. in clinical neuropsychology, having founded and overseen multiple companies successful over the past 25 years in the health-care and mental-health fields. â€œ(Also by virtue of) my residency in the village for almost 25 years and a 20-year history of volunteerism in the village in scouting, within the recreation commission and within the school system.â€?

Homemade Halloween treats kids can help make ‘Glowing’ swamp punch
This still boggles my mind: Halloween is second only to Christmas as the most decorated holiday. Not so when I was a kid. The house wasn’t decorated, and the eight girls in our family were either witches or gypsies. My brother, Charlie, the last born, was always a hobo. We used whatever we could find to dress up and we left at dark, by ourselves, and came home with grocery paper bags full of treats. Rita Fast forward to Halloween 2015. Even if Heikenfeld parental rules are stricter, Halloween is still so much fun! Here are last-minute RITA’S KITCHEN recipes for a ghoulishly good Halloween.
Let the kids help. They love the creepy crawler ice ring. 1 cup boiling water 2 packages, 4-serving size each, lime gelatin 3 cups cold water 1-1/2 quarts carbonated lemon-lime soda, chilled
Pour boiling water over gelatin and stir until dissolved. Stir in cold water. Pour into punch bowl. Stir in soda, making mixture fizz. Unmold ice ring by dipping bottom of mold briefly into hot water. Float in punch. Serve cups garnished with gummy worms. Creepy crawler ice ring1 cup gummy worms or other creepy crawler gummies 1 quart lemon-lime sports drink like Gatorade Arrange gummy worms in bottom of 5-cup ring mold; fill with Gatorade. Freeze until solid.
Homemade microwave popcorn
Check out my Abouteating.com site. You won’t believe how easy and inexpensive, not to mention healthy and amazingly tender it is. (Hint: 1/2 cup unpopped corn makes a generous 8 cups, but there’s a secret technique!) Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator, Jungle Jim’s Eastgate culinary professional and author. Find her blog at Abouteating.com. Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line. Call 513-248-7130, ext. 356.
My best caramel corn
Black cat cookie pops
This makes a lot so feel free to divide in half. Adding dried fruit elevates this to a new dimension. Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Again, let the kids help. Don’t worry if their cookies look like something other than cats. It’s about creativity and fun, not perfection.
15-16 cups or so of popped corn About 3 cups salted mixed nuts 2 sticks or butter 2 cups brown sugar 1/2 cup light corn syrup 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon vanilla 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 2 cups dried cranberries, cherries or apricots (opt)
1 cup creamy peanut butter 1/3 cup water 2 eggs 1 box chocolate cake mix Popsicle sticks Sugar Candy corn, red hots
To avoid sticking, use vegetable spray to coat both inside of large bowl, cookie sheets and spoons that you will use. Put popcorn and nuts in bowl. Set aside. Over medium heat in a large pan, bring to a boil everything but the soda. Boil 5 minutes. Add baking soda and stir. Mixture will foam up. Immediately pour over popcorn mixture, stirring well to coat. Pour in a single layer onto sprayed cookie sheets. Bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes to distribute coating. Let cool for coating to harden; add fruit, and store at room temperature in covered containers. Makes about 20 cups.
Tip from Rita’s kitchen After popping corn, place in colander or bowl and scoop up popcorn gently with hands. Any unpopped corn will lie in bottom of bowl.
THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD
Rita Heikenfeld makes homemade caramel corn on the stovetop.
Preheat oven to 350. Beat peanut butter with water and eggs. Add cake mix and mix. Form into 1-1/2” balls and place on sprayed cookie sheet. Push in a popsicle stick. Flatten with bottom of glass dipped in sugar. Pinch two “ears” at top of cookie. Press fork into dough to form whiskers on either side of nose. Bake 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately add candy corn eyes and red-hot nose, pushing in gently. If they happen to fall off after they cool, glue them on with a little powdered sugar glaze or canned frosting. Makes 2-3 dozen

Simple pleasures of life My first stop when I go to the grocery store is the produce section. Besides the normal lettuce, peppers, celery weekly purchases, I usually look for fruit that is in season. So this past summer with the heat/ humidly being the norm, I journeyed towards the watermelon display crate. There I found an elderly lady bent over the crate side attempting to reach a melon. I hurried over to help her to get one, but saw that she was knotting on each watermelon she could reach. The lady proceeded to stop after each knot and listen as getting some inter response from each melon regarding its ripeness. I join in with my own tapping and tried to act like I knew exactly the right resonance tone I was listening for. The lady noticing my attempt, told me its better if you use a spoon; which she forgot to bring, because when you tap each one, it’s easier to hear each melon’s pitch sound. Just then I envision her doing this as a crowd gathers around the melon crate to watch her “spooning melons.” She informs me they should sound like a bongo drum to be a good one. Holding one of the heavy melons close to my ear, I tap it and listen. I attempted to hear some drumming, bongo resounding reply, like when you shout in a canyon and the sound echoing its ghostly retort. We were starting to get stares from other shoppers as a few wandering over with curiosity to see what we were doing. Watermelons actually have a prized heritage, coming from Africa, eaten by ancient Egyptian pharaohs. I read somewhere, there were actually remnants of the melons discovered in tombs, as people believed watermelons were a source of water needed for their prolonged spiritual journey. But it’s the southern U.S. that seems to put a claim on them, as southerners say their water-
melons are the best. Mark Twain put it this way: “The true Southern watermelon is a boon apart, and not to be mentioned with commoner things. It is chief of this world’s luxuries, king by the grace of God over all the fruits of the earth. When one has tastWes ed it, he knows what the angels Adamson eat. It was not a Southern watermelon that Eve took, we know it COLUMNIST because she repented.” When we were kids, my brother and I would eat watermelon in the backyard and have a seed-spitting contest. I can’t remember precisely, but the trick for the best shot was to put the seed on the tip of your tongue, rolling your tongue for a more of a tube release. Then rear back with a full lung thrust. Like everything else there are national watermelon seed spitting contests; the record is somewhere over 75 feet. Sadly I read somewhere that most watermelons today are seedless, maybe losing another great tradition. Society today appears to need all sorts of grading levels; such as if watermelons are sold commercially, they must meet a certain sweetness level. Defining and putting everything in a structural sense makes life seem so categorized. A keeping of order maybe, but removing much of the individual’s creative imagination of self-discovery. My elderly store lady friend and I just want our old summertime, two-handed mouth-eating favorite. I wonder if she’s a seed-spitting girl as the next time at the local watermelon crate, we definitely have more to talk about! Wes Adamson is a resident of Wyoming.

Save money with winter weatherization tips from PWC Winter is right around the corner, and with it comes colder weather and higher heating bills. October is National Weatherization Month, so now is the time to begin preparing homes in order to conserve energy and save money. At People Working Cooperatively we’ve been providing services to the low-income, elderly and disabled citizens of Greater Cincinnati for 40 years to help keep their homes warm and their bills low, and we’ve Nina put together a Creech few easy tips COMMUNITY PRESS for homeownGUEST COLUMNIST ers to prepare their home this season. Step one of preparing a home for winter is checking the windows and doors. These are two of the areas it is easiest for heat to escape and cold air to enter a home. Begin outside, checking the seal between windows and siding. Homeowners may need to strip away layers of old paint and caulking before re-caulking to ensure a tight seal. After sealing the outside, homeowners should move inside and check the weather stripping on their windows. If the weather stripping looks worn down it should be replaced. Just sealing windows could save 15 percent off energy bills this winter. Installing a programmable thermostat is another great way for homeowners to save money on their energy bill. For every degree a thermostat is set back over an eight-hour period, homeowners can save as much as one percent on their energy bill each month. It’s easy to program the ther-
mostat to turn the heat down at night while everyone is sleeping and during the day while the house is empty, but begin to warm it back up when the family will be up and around the house. Checking the furnace early before it gets really cold - is a good rule of thumb. Waking up on the first truly cold day of the season to discover the furnace isn’t working is a situation homeowners want to avoid. Call in a professional to evaluate the furnace and provide any tune-up necessary. Annual maintenance keeps furnaces running safely and efficiently and avoids larger problems down the line. Another easy maintenance tip is to change your air filter. Filters should be changed every few months, and it’s a good idea to change it out before the furnace gets heavy use. The new filter helps with efficiency, keeps air clean, and helps to keep the family healthy. It’s also important to clean gutters twice a year to make sure they are working properly. Now that leaves have started falling, it’s a good idea for homeowners to check their gutters for debris including animal nests, branches, leaves, and anything else that may have landed on the roof. Homeowners should also ensure that their downspout is pointed away from the house to avoid erosion to the foundation because of run-off. Taking the time to weatherize could mean significant savings on energy bills this winter. We encourage homeowners to evaluate their energy use and take some of these steps to ensure their homes stay warm and efficient this winter.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Candidates’ stances on transparency unclear

Marvin Jones puts extra effort into his spike after scoring a touchdown in the third quarter of the Bengals’ win at Buffalo.
Oct. 22 question Who-dey? How far will the Bengals go this year?
THIS WEEK’S QUESTION
“Super Bowl 50 champs.”
Should college education be free? Why or why not?
“The Bengals will go farther than the Reds did, but then again, how hard can that be? They are playing well and winning consistently – Yay! Now, if they can keep the injuries to a minimum we might just have something in this team. Since they are playing so well and selling many seats, can we renegotiate the asinine deal our stupid city leaders agreed to with Mr. Brown? It is beyond ridiculous for this city with its level of financial woes to have to pay so much to keep a team here that gives darned near nothing back. I want to have pride in this team and I do, but that pride gets very muddled when thinking about how thoroughly Brown takes the city to the cleaners year after year after year.”

ABOUT LETTERS AND COLUMNS “The Bengals are an exciting team with many great players on offense and defense. Barring major injuries (like last year) they are playoff bound. It would be great if they can get a first round bye in the playoffs along with home field advantage. But the New England Patriots stand in their way. The wish here is someone can knock of New England prior to the Bengals having to face them in the playoffs. That might just propel the Bengals to the Super Bowl ala the 1981 and 1988 seasons.”
Regarding your interview with Indian Hill School Board candidates, the public learns very little about the prospects for transparency and abiding the rule of law as all three seemed to avoid revealing their feelings on the litigation with CRSS. The fact that the existing board acted illegally and covertly is not in dispute as the courts have ruled against them. Unfortunately this slate of candidates adds little input
as to their individual posture on returning the money owed the taxpayers which only makes one wonder if they aren’t quietly mulling “how can the next board work to do this same thing...legally?” That $38 million dollar piggy bank the school system sits on looms rather large over this discussion. As a taxpayer - and voter - in Indian Hill, I see nothing in their veiled responses to suggest I give them my vote.

INDIAN HILL – Less than 24 hours after a triumphant Division II state championship for the Indian Hill High School girls tennis combo of Caroline Andersen and Meredith Breda, the Lady Braves had their racquets out again. The perennial Cincinnati Hills League champions traveled to Reynoldsburg, outside of Columbus Oct. 18 for another day’s work in the Ohio Coaches Tennis Association tournament. Running their traditional season lineup out in the semifinal against Lexington, the Lady Braves coached by Gary Samuels took three singles matches to advance to the championship. Senior Caroline Andersen, junior Gracey Hirsch and senior Meredith Breda won first, second and third singles, respectively. That put them against Shaker Heights Hathaway Brown, a team they defeated two years ago, and home of the doubles team Andersen and Breda had defeated just a day before. Samuels switched the lineup
to Andersen, Hirsch and Maren McKenna at singles, with Breda and Nina Price playing first doubles and Amalia Guzman and Sarah Price second doubles. Unfortunately, the team more than one coach has termed “best in the state” lived up to their billing. Hathaway Brown won three matches and the title with Indian Hill taking runner-up. “We thought we had a chance with the way they matched up their lineup at second and third singles and second doubles, but it didn’t go well,” Samuels said. “They were just incredible. They had their state doubles runner-ups together at first doubles, which surprised me. Five of their players are either freshmen or sophomores, the talent is just so deep there.” Making things difficult was the matchup of Andersen against the Division II singles champion, Lauren Gillinov. Then, as Samuels described, Breda, with new partner Nina Price, had to face Catherine Araklett and Ally Persky, whom she played the previous day See TENNIS, Page 2B

SPRINGFIELD TWP. - With the final stroke of his high school golf career, St. Xavier senior Kirran Magowan sent the St. Xavier gallery into an uproar when he drained a 6-foot birdie putt on 18 to complete an even-par round of 72, helping the Bombers win their fourth Division I state golf championship. Magowan’s score wasn’t used on Friday, only a team’s four lowest rounds count toward the tournament total. “It’s kind of like a storybook finish,” said Magowan. “I always kind of replayed it in my mind that it would finish like this. Everything kind of lined up; I didn’t think I would play this well.” The Bombers won their first title since 2008 Saturday on the Scarlet course at the Ohio State University Golf Club. St. X shot 616 (303-313) to edge Dublin Jerome’s 621 (316-305). Springboro came in third with 629 (313-316). “If there was anybody on the team, if they shot 82 on day one, that I knew in my heart could come back and go low, it’s Kirran,” said St. Xavier coach Alex Kepley. “He’s played the last part of this season so stellar … 72, that’s a dream, but I felt like he could go 75 or lower.” Magowan led the Bombers with a 36-hole total of 154, followed by senior Domenic Maricocchi with 155 (71-84). Junior Zachary Pavlin shot 157
MADSIONVILLE – Prior to the season, Seven Hills girls soccer coach Nick Francis was asked questions like who he thinks will lead the squad this year, or who might be a pleasant surprise. Those queries make him bristle, and he typically refrains from answering them. On the surface, it seems odd that he wouldn’t highlight a few of the players. Dig a little deeper and it all makes sense. By highlighting a few players, it could heap extra pressure on the select few while effectively limiting the players he didn’t name. He lets the players assume an identity on the team. Claire Stewart, one of the seniors, and sophomore Ally Jandes have assumed the primary scoring roles on the team. Jandes has tabulated 49 points on 22 goals and five assists. Stewart adds 41 more points on 14 goals and 13 assists. “Ally’s a great player,” Stewart said. “I really count on her to get those goals and she does it 99 percent of the time. We’re so thankful she can get close and score.”

(77-80), and sophomores Michael Prebles (80-78) and Cameron Frazier (75-83) each shot 158. Magowan said after, “It’s surreal, it’s one of those things … I don’t know, I’m kind of speechless after that one.” Kepley, after winning his first state title as coach, said, “They don’t quit, they kept playing hard and they knew the importance of every single shot … what is so incredibly cool, is when you look at these five guys, everybody’s score counted at least once and everybody had a round in the 70s that counted. Their 36-hole totals ranging from 154-158 – that’s how it’s been all year.”

Jandes has surprised even herself with the impact she’s made this season. She admits to some trepidation when she joined the program as a freshman. Seniors, like Stewart, have done a good job making her feel welcome on the team. “I’m really proud of how far I’ve come with the support of the upperclassmen,” Jandes said. “With Claire, It’s like we are best friends and we’ve only known each other for a year.” Stewart and Jandes, along with their teammates, stayed afloat in the Miami Valley Conference, easily one of the toughest conferences in the area. Summit Country Day and Cincinnati Country Day as well as CHCA are a lot for the Stingers to navigate. Stewart said they treat all opponents like they’re the same and added they’re there to compete in every game. That attitude helped Seven Hills hold off the Eagles in a 1-0 victory which propelled them to the sectional final this week. “This group never quits, even when they are losing,” Francis said. “They are used to tough games and obviously at this stage of the season, they’re all tough.”

ProKids calls on friends of children to create difference for foster children ProKids Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA volunteers) make things happen behind the scenes. They advocate for abused and neglected children who are in the foster care system and work to help them have permanent and nurturing homes. ProKids Recently, brought CASA Volunteer Lori Feldman center stage before more than 600 guests at the annual of Children Friends Breakfast at the Cintas Center. Telling the story of a young mother who recovered from her drug-addicted past to be reunited with her daughter, Feldman of Green Township was the face of the community effort of ProKids. Board President Tom Cuni of Madeira, former board member and current CASA volunteer Dick Paulsen of Hyde Park, and TD Hughes of North Bend called on the group to support Cincinnati’s most vulnerable children with donations and volunteer time. “ProKids works,” Paulsen said. “It works because it focuses on a critical need that is often overlooked in our community: abused and neglected children need our help in order to have a different future.” Cuni said he began working with ProKids when the 33-year-old agency “showed me how to impact the lives of children who desperately need help so they can have something as fundamental as a safe place in which to live and grow.” Hughes, a former
