BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Common Core worries new member By Forrest Sellers

fsellers@communitypress.com

Voters have elected a new board member for the Indian Hill Exempted Village School District Board of Education. Two incumbents were also elected. Four candidates ran for three seats on the board. Eddie Hooker was the top vote-getter with 1,508 votes followed by incumbents Elizabeth Johnston (1,372 votes) and Kim Martin Lewis (1,221). Incumbent Karl Grafe was not re-elected after finishing fourth with 1,159 votes. Hooker said, “What I was hearing (was the voters) had concerns regarding the Common Core, and they also expressed frustration that negotiations (with the Indian Hill Education Association) were going on too long.”

Hooker, who is a teacher of medicine at Xavier University and who also helped set up an emergency response plan for the Indian Hill schools about a decade ago, expressed concerns about state-mandated Common Core standards. The Indian Hill Education Association, to which Hooker referred, is a union representing teachers in the district. Negotiations with the union have been ongoing since April, but a contract has not yet been finalized. “I want to make sure we meet the state mandate on Common Core without damaging our fine curriculum,” said Hooker. Hooker said maintaining district facilities will also be important. School board members recently conducted a special meeting to discuss capital

improvement projects for 2014. “The theater has updates that need to be done immediately,” he said, referring to electrical and Hooker heating systems. Johnston, who has served on the board for eight years, said voter turnout may have had an impact. “Voting was Lewis extremely light, and (Hooker) did a fantastic job with his marketing,” she said. Slightly more than onefourth of the registered voters in the district voted Nov. 5, with

26.5 percent casting ballots. “I don’t think it was a lack of confidence (in the board),” she said, referring to election results. “I think it was a Johnston matter of who turned out, voter recognition and the fact the incumbents didn’t do a lot of marketing.” Johnston said a focus of hers will be installation of a central plant, which will consist of a boiler and chiller, at the high school and middle school campus. Installation of the central plant, which has been approved by the school board, will help reduce energy costs. She said energy conservation and green awareness remain a priority for her. Lewis, who has served on

the school board since 2010 and is currently vice president of the board, was unable to be reached for comment. Lewis, though, had previously said “mentoring relationships” between students and teachers and students and administrators is something she considers vital. In commenting on Common Core standards, Lewis had said while implementing the new curriculum the district should continue to focus on Advanced Placement courses, the arts and sports. Grafe, who is currently president of the board, declined to comment when contacted by the Community Press. The results are not official until certified by the Hamilton County Board of Elections later this month.

Village residents asked for more of the same and they apparently are going to get it. Voters on Nov. 5 returned all five Indian Hill Village Council incumbents who sought re-election and two challengers – all seven of whom were endorsed by the Mayor’s Nominating Committee. “Given that there will only be two new council members it is unlikely that there will be a change in council direction,” said Keith Rabenold, who currently is serving as vice mayor and was re-elected. “The new council will continue to focus on the financial health of the village and ensuring that the village remains a safe and comfortable place in which to live.” Here’s a breakdown of the ballots cast in the Indian Hill council race, according to the unofficial results from the Hamilton County Board of Elections: » Incumbent Molly Barber - 851 votes (nearly 14 percent of the ballots cast). » Incumbent Daniel Feigelson – 849 (nearly 14 percent). » Challenger Melissa Skidmore Cowan – 841 (nearly 14 percent). » Rabenold – 835 (nearly 14 percent). » Incumbent Laura Raines – 827 (about 13 percent). » Incumbent Mark Kuenning – 813 (about 13 percent). » Challenger Abbot Thayer - 812 (about 13 percent). » Challenger David Turner- 359 (nearly 6 percent). Turnout for the election was low, with just over 24 percent of the 4,792 registered voters casting a ballot. “I certainly feel honored at having been re-elected to council,” Rabenold said. “I believe that village residents recognize that the nominating committee process, which has been used for decades, continues to work well.”

Turner, however, is not a fan of the committee process, in which the current mayor has since 1941 named someone to chair the committee and choose members who are to Rabenold look for council candidates who have the knowledge and experience to handle issues the village will face in the next two years. This year, Mayor Mark Tullis tapped former mayor Eppa Turner Rixey IV, who served on council from 2001 to 2009, to chair the nominating committee. The committee did not endorse Turner and he came in last in the balloting. “The slate is a defacto political party running under the guise of a nonpartisan election,” Turner said. “The slate, as a block, refuses to participate in candidate council forums at which they could articulate their thoughts on the village’s future and answer questions posed by interested members of the electorate. “In a village whose inner circle repeatedly touts the process as non-political I feel it is particularly ironic that the members of this inner circle seem to be unable to see the difference between a one-party dominated system and an apolitical process,” Turner said. Candidates elected Nov. 5 will begin two-year, unpaid terms Dec. 1. Tullis and Councilwoman Lindsay McLean did not seek re-election.

Ticket took a slow road through court system Gannett News Service

The case of the speeder who battled Indian Hill for almost two years over a speeding ticket, taking it all the way to the Ohio Supreme Court, recently ended without much of a fight. After a trial of about 15 minutes, at which the attorney for Keith Ledgerwood presented no evidence, Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Lisa Allen convicted Ledgerwood of speeding Nov. 4. “You need to slow down,” the judge told Ledgerwood, ordering him to pay a $100 fine and $110 in court costs. “You’ve got a bunch of speeding tickets. It looks

like you’ve got a lot of breaks.” Those breaks, Ledgerwood believed, are exactly why Indian Hill police and prosecutors refused to back down over a $95 speeding ticket issued Feb. 6, 2012. Ledgerwood, now 30, was driving on Ohio 126, known as Remington Road in Indian Hill, when police clocked him driving 54 miles per hour, 19 miles over the speed limit. When pulled over, Ledgerwood asked police to cite him for something less than speeding so it wouldn’t negatively impact his drivers license. When Indian Hill police discovered he’d been caught speeding seven

Ledgerwood

times in other Hamilton County jurisdictions since 2004 – and many of the charges had been lessened – they cited him for going 19 miles per hour over the limit. Indian Hill officials dismissed the ticket after Ledgerwood went to mayor’s court, but later reinstated it. Ledgerwood contended Indian Hill violated his right to a speedy trial,

and a judge twice threw the ticket out, saying Indian Hill improperly acted in the case by dismissing and then reissuing the ticket. The case went to an appeals court, which ruled Indian Hill didn’t violate his right to a speedy trial, and then to Ohio’s Supreme Court, which refused Oct. 23 to hear the case. In June, Indian Hill officials said it had spent “30 to 40 hours” on the case, but that was before the case went to the Ohio Supreme Court and before the Nov. 4 trial. Indian Hill pays a private law firm $4,000 per month to serve as its prosecutor.

CCDS teacher earns certification Andrea Owens, technology and media services coordinator at Cincinnati Country Day School, recently earned certification as an ICoach from INFOhio, Ohio’s PreK-12 Digital Library. The certification requires five hours of group training and individual study, which was completed on her own time this past summer. ICoaches, short for “integration coach,” work with teachers to incorporate digital technology and research tools in their classrooms. Owens, of Madisonville, joins 71 other educators around Ohio who have received District/Building ICoach certification. “ICoaches are a linchpin in promoting INFOhio’s free resources and services to educators

across the state,” said INFOhio’s Executive Director Theresa M. Fredericka. “An ICoach has firsthand experience with the demands classroom educators face along with boundless curiosity about the newest educational technologies. And they love to share their excitement.” For more than 20 years, INFOhio has provided online digital resources to Ohio’s PreK-12 schools and is one of the country’s largest library and information networks. INFOhio provides a collection of online academic research databases to all preK-12 students and their families, as well as classroom information technology and curriculum support to educators.

Shielding gay son, Portman tried to stay off GOP ticket Gannett News Service WASHINGTON — Sen. Rob Portman tried to take himself off Mitt Romney’s vice presidential short list, fearing the selection process could force his son to reveal his homosexuality in the glare of the political spotlight, according to a new book on the 2012 presidential campaign. “The prospect of being tapped (as Romney’s running mate) filled him with no small degree of anguish,” write journalists

Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, authors of “Double Down: Game Change 2012.” In the spring of 2012, Romney’s campaign had winnowed the list of two dozen potential running mates to five – including Portman, a Republican from Terrace Park. The vice presidential search was code-named “Project Goldfish,” after the crackers, and each of the candidates was given an “aquatic code name.” Portman’s was “Filet-OFish.”

When Romney called to tell Portman he was among the finalists, “Portman put him off, saying he wanted to consult with his family,” the book recounts. Unbeknownst to the Romney campaign, Portman’s son, Will, a college student at Yale, had told his parents in February 2011that he was gay. Will’s disclosure had prompted Portman to rethink his opposition to same-sex marriage, but the senator wasn’t ready to announce his reversal on such a politically volatile issue yet. “Father and son had been talking about going public together for a while, but they wanted to do it on their own timetable,” the book says. “Although Will was out of the closet at Yale, he wasn’t ready to be out on the national stage, and Portman wasn’t prepared to announce his newfound support for gay marriage.” Portman called Romney and said he didn’t want to be considered, without disclosing anything about Will. With the press still hounding him about whether he was being vetted, Portman asked

Romney’s campaign in late May if he could put out a statement saying “he had chosen not to be considered.” Romney’s top aides, though, were afraid it would look like a slap at the former Massachusetts governor – that no one wanted to be on the ticket with him. That’s because Portman’s request came soon after former Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels gave Romney what

the book calls a “kick in the shins” when he told Fox News that he wasn’t being vetted to be Romney’s running mate. “Of course not,” Daniels said. “If I thought the call was coming, I would disconnect the phone.” So Stuart Stevens, a top adviser to Romney who had also worked for Portman, begged the Ohio Republican to keep himself in the mix. Portman didn’t want to deal a blow to the campaign. And he also realized that, if he took himself out of the running, the media would want to know why. Because of “… the press corps’ obsession with the veep stakes, removing himself from the short list would raise more questions than it answered. Reporters would furiously try to figure out why he was standing down,” the authors write. After consulting with his family, Portman decided to tell Stevens and Beth Meyers, who was leading Romney’s vice presidential vetting, that Will was gay.

“Portman made it clear that, if he were picked, he would also announce that he was changing his position on gay marriage,” the book says. Stevens and Meyers said that would be fine. “Doesn’t help us, doesn’t hurt us,” was Stevens’ analysis. In the end, all the behind-the-scenes drama was for naught, because Romney settled on Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin as his running mate. And Portman waited until well after the election – March 2013 – to disclose his stunning shift on same-sex marriage. “Double Down” also reveals a few snippets about House Speaker John Boehner’s role in the 2012 election. The West Chester Republican was quietly pushing two other GOP contenders – Daniels and Ryan – to jump into the race as an alternative to Romney. “The speaker had been briefed on the mechanics of a white-knight entry and was increasingly warm to the notion,” the book says. “He made sure Daniels knew he wanted the Hoosier to reconsider” his earlier decision against running, “while at the same time encouraging Paul Ryan to step into the fray.” Boehner and Ohio Gov. John Kasich are even described in one section as “extreme doubters” of Romney’s candidacy. The book quotes Kasich as exclaming early on: “It can’t be Mitt. He’s terrible!” m

have a “one-time offer” to continue as a party, said Rep. Matt Huffman, R-Lima. Still, the proposal makes it more difficult for parties to form, said Rep. Ron Gerberry, DAustintown. The Seitz plan would require third parties to get about 28,000 signatures to register as a party in 2014, while the House version of the bill would have allowed them to meet an easier standard, just for 2014, of 10,000 signatures. “The fact remains that what we’re trying to do is make it more difficult for third parties to get on the ballot,” Gerberry said. “I think it’s misrepresented that we’re being fair.” Committee member Sen. Edna Brown, D-Toledo, said Senate Democrats’ primary concern had been the timing of the bill. But Senate Minority Leader Eric Kearney, DNorth Avondale, said his caucus has been more concerned that the bill’s intention was to keep minority parties off the ballot. “I think the bill is bad, so you can take the House version, you can take the Senate version – I don’t agree with the approach,” Kearney said. The committee plans to consider the proposal at noon Wednesday and may send a bill to the House and Senate that afternoon for an up-or-down vote.

The

COLUMBUS — A Green Township state senator is seeking to make it harder for third parties to get on Ohio ballots, after GOP drama and an inadvertent mistake derailed efforts last week to push through a bill governing the parties. Republican Sen. Bill Seitz, sponsor of the bill, is chairing a committee of six lawmakers tasked with reconciling versions of the legislation that have passed the House and Senate. The House version would have allowed so-called “minor parties” to collect fewer signatures to get on the ballot, and the Senate was poised last week to approve those changes. But an inadvertent mistake in the drafting meant that chamber had to vote down the House bill. On Tuesday, Seitz told the committee he wanted to use some of the House provisions in 2014 but revert to the Senate’s stricter version starting in 2015. That would eliminate many of the changes the House made last week to appease conservative Republicans, who were threatening to oppose the bill because some say it would help Gov. John Kasich get re-elected. Libertarians worry the rules would make it harder for them to get on the ballot or run a successful

campaign, thus preventing their proposed gubernatorial candidate, former Republican state representative Charlie Earl, from taking conservative votes away from Kasich in 2014. Conservative lawmakers angry with the governor’s efforts to expand Medicaid were hesitant to support a bill that would help him politically and only gave it their vote after a day and half of tense negotiations. Seitz’s proposed changes could make for another tense vote in the House. Under Seitz’s proposal Tuesday, minority parties wanting to register for the 2014 election would have to get signatures equal to 0.5 percent of the total votes cast in the most recent gubernatorial or presidential election. They’d then have to earn 2 percent of the vote in the 2014 gubernatorial election to continue to be a party for the next four years. Starting in 2015, parties would have to get signatures equal to 1 percent of the votes in the most recent gubernatorial or presidential election. They’d have to get 3 percent of the vote in the next election to remain a party. Most of the concerns about the bill were related to its impact on the 2014 election, Seitz said in defense of his plan. And parties that earn 2 percent in next year’s election would

Cincinnati Country Day goes down in D-VI; Moeller advances in D-I Panthers. Elder defeated Northmont 16-7 to advance. Moeller won the regular season feature at The Pit 35-14 on Oct. 11.

INDIAN HILL — The regular season was perfect. The second season, not so much. Cincinnati Country Day fell 55-28 at home Nov. 8 against Summit Country Day in the first round of the Division VI playoffs. The Silver Knights avenged a 35-27 CCD win week eight by handing the Indians their first and only loss of the season. “We definitely wanted to see them again,” said Summit head coach Mike Brown. “Any time you play your rival and you only lose by eight, you want another shot at them. “The good part is we got to get them again. But they’re a league rival in your division and you want your conference to do well, so from that perspective it’s tough. They’re definitely a very good team.” CCD had no answer for Summit senior quarterback Antonio Woods, who threw for four touchdowns and ran for three more. “Our offense came out firing on all cylinders,” Brown said. “In our first seven possessions we scored six touchdowns. At the end of the half we scored two touchdowns in the last three minutes and that proved to be very important for us. No lead was safe against them. They’re a very good team. “(Woods) is electrifying. He made all the throws and when they weren’t there, he didn’t make any bad decisions and that was just as big. When he runs, he takes what should be a three-yard gain and turns it into a 50-yard touchdown. He’s just an exceptional athlete.” CCD finished the season 10-1, sharing the Miami Valley Conference title with Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy. The Silver Knights improved to 9-2 with the win and advanced to face West Liberty-Salem Nov. 15. The Tigers beat Williamsburg 27-20 in

In a game that could have filled some stadiums beyond the capacity of Lockland Memorial’s 6,000, Moeller started its 2013 run in the Division I playoffs with a 42-17 rout of St. Xavier. After taking a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, the Bombers got within a touchdown at 21-14 at the half. However, the second half belonged to Moeller as they outscored St. Xavier 21-3 to win by 25. Senior Gus Ragland was Moeller’s top rusher with 157 yards and three touchdowns. Nearly half of those yards came on a 72-yard fourth-quarter scamper. He also was 10-13 passing for 264 yards and two touchdowns to senior Isaiah

Gentry. Ragland missed Moeller’s first win over St. Xavier back on Sept. 27 with an injury. Gentry had 229 yards receiving on five grabs with touchdowns of 55 and 81 yards. Moeller’s other touchdown was a Dean Meyer two-yard run in the fourth quarter. Also contributing in the victory was Sterling Noes, who ran for 135 yards with a long run of 75. Defensively, Ohio Statebound Sam Hubbard had two interceptions and Will Mercurio added another pick. The Crusaders outgained the Bombers 631-302. St. Xavier’s season ends at 5-6. Moeller is now 10-1 with their lone loss coming at Lakewood St. Edward on Oct. 26. Next up on Nov. 16 is the Elder

This one goes to 11. The one in this instance being the Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy football team. The Eagles went one higher than their 10-0 regular season with a 19-0 shutout of Madeira in the opening round of the Division V playoffs Nov. 9. Nick Marsh scored on a 20yard touchdown with 56 seconds left in the first half to give CHCA a 7-0 edge at the break As it happened, those were all the points CHCA would need against an injury-riddled Mustangs club, not that head coach Eric Taylor relaxed. “At 7-0 I was very uncomfortable,” he said. “Even 13-0 was still uncomfortable. They’ve come back on some very good football teams this year.” Quarterback Conner Osborne felt much better after the first score. Despite starting the game with eight consecutive incomplete passes, he warmed up enough to engineer the first scoring drive and then cut loose in the fourth quarter. Osborne hit Dave Bechtold for a 44-yard score to give the Eagles some breathing room at 13-0. Kyle Davis added a five-yard touchdown run after a Madeira fumble for the final margin. “Our offense knew we needed one good drive to put a score in the end zone,” Osborne said. “Our defense played lights out all night. It was great.” And not surprising; CHCA had four shutouts in the regular season. CHCA advanced to the second round against Hamilton Badin Nov. 16. The Rams dispatched Mariemont 37-13 in their playoff opener and come into the regional semifinals with a 9-2 record.

Indian Hill drops rainy heartbreaker in state semis By Scott Springer sspringer@communitypress.com

HUBER HEIGHTS — In their first trip years, Indian Hill High School’s boys soccer team lost a rainy heartbreaker to Bishop Watterson of Columbus, 2-1 in overtime. Tied after regulation in the Division II state semifinal game, the Braves and Eagles went to “sudden victory” overtime for 15 minutes. For 12 minutes and 40 seconds, the game remained tied. Then, with 2:20 remaining, junior Brad Kanney’s head connected with senior Michael Gilbert’s corner kick giving Watterson the win and a trip home to Crew Stadium in the final. After shaking hands with many of the Indian Hill contingent who sat through constant rain at Huber Heights Wayne, the Braves were left giving hugs to their coaching staff. “You get to go through this game by game, and you get a lot of hugs and a lot of joy,” coach

Bill Mees said. “At some point you’re either going to keep winning it all or you’re going to have a tough night ahead of you.”

Unfortunately, fate decided it would be a tough night for Indian Hill in the Division II state semifinal. Indian Hill controlled the

first half, with the Braves getting eight shots on goal to Watterson’s two. However, the Eagles’ first shot by Tommy Geraghty went beyond goalkeeper Ryan Combs with 4:08 left before intermission. “I thought we were pretty dominant in that half,” Mees said. “I thought it was just a matter of time before one would go in. Our guys at halftime thought they were the better team and thought they would get one.” They finally got one with 9:14 remaining in the game when senior Adam Luckey scored on a header. “Brooks Renfro put in the cross and it barely got over the last defender’s head,” Luckey said. “It was right there.” That would be the lone goal for Indian Hill. Watterson’s game-winner marked just the sixth time an opponent had scored a second goal on the Indian Hill’s defense. “Nobody scored more than two on us all year,” Mees said. “We knew they played the ball

quickly and directly. I thought for the most part, we handled it pretty well.” For 11 Indian Hill seniors, it was their final prep game. Mees will have to rebuild from four juniors and four sophomores for 2014. “They’ve certainly had a good career with us,” Mees said. “A lot of these guys have been with us for three years and David Robinett’s been with us four years.” Robinett, Brad Seiler, Brad Collins, Luckey and Brandon Kuy were all top 20 Cincinnati Hills League scorers. The varsity’s final record was 15-6-2 with the Watterson loss breaking their longest win streak of the year - the sixstraight tournament victories over Taylor, Goshen, Western Brown, Carroll, Bexley and Fenwick. The Braves were previously in the state tournament for three consecutive years in 1985-1987 under current assistant Jim Vockell. Mees took over after the ‘87 season.

Indian Hill girl top 10 finisher in U.S. Pony Finals An Indian Hill teen claimed a top-10 finish at the U.S. Pony Finals in Lexington, Ky., where the country’s leading ponies and their riders gathered for six days of competition to name a U.S. Hunter Pony Champion. Lilly Mack, an eighthgrader at Indian Hill Middle School, delivered an impressive performance, placing second in the jumping phase and seventh overall for Large Green Pony Hunters. Mack rode “Blue a Kiss” through an elaborate course of fences measuring 2 feet, 6 inches to claim the No. 2 spot in the jumping class. Mack rides year-round at Lochmoor Stables in Lebanon with nationally-acclaimed trainers Mindy Darst and Patty Rogers. Fellow Lochmoor riders Sophia Roberts of Wilmington and Claire Healy of Hyde Park also competed at U.S. Pony Finals, which drew more than 600 of the country’s top ponies and their riders. Roberts, riding “I Love Blucy,” placed seventh in jumping and eighth overall in Small Green Pony Hunters. Two additional ponies owned by Roberts closed the competition with strong showings: “Farmore Prima Ballerina” was awarded Best Presented Pony and fourth overall; and “Yes It’s True” placed first among Small Green Pony Hunters and was named the Grand Green Pony Champion. Healy, a fifth-grader at Summit Country Day School, was among more than 100 competitors in Small Regular Pony Hunters. Healy claimed a spot in the top 56

Approve new teacher contract on a trial basis 7) The existing methodology of evaluating and compensating teachers would continue unchanged in year one of the proposed contract. 8) In year two of the proposed contract the method of evaluating performance would remain the same, but only the teachers who were judged to be in the two highest categories would receive a raise. 9) Based on recent evaluations it is expected the vast majority, if not all, the teachers would be classified in the top two categories. 10) In its second year the proposed contract would allow the board to choose not to reward under-performing teachers financially. 11) Ultimately the system being proposed by the board appears structured to reward teachers who perform well with additional compensation and passively encourage under-performing teachers to improve or leave the district. As a parent who has had at least one child in the district for the past 23 years I trust both the collective wisdom of the teachers and the decisionmaking process of the board. Vouching for either side to the other I would say, “Trust them, they’re good people.” To the parties I would say,

board members tread lightly. Discouraging a few mediocre teachers from remaining on staff at the expense of alienating the great many extraordinarily good teachers is a fool’s bargain. Teachers: stop advocating for the protection of mediocrity. It damages your position and the legitimacy of your concerns. I suggest both parties: the board and teachers agree upon on this contract on a trial basis. Remember: about the time these proposed changes would go into effect you will be negotiating a new contract. Should these changes not be working out fairly, addressing those known inequities at that time with data, rather than now with supposition and fear, seems the most reasonable course of action. It is important to remember that the board and faculty in the district have a long and distinguished history of working successfully together, of tackling and solving problems bigger than this. I am confident that professionalism, logic and common sense will once again prevail. David Turner is an Indian Hill resident.

Support bill on pet protection orders Ohio Senate Bill 177, Pet Protection Orders, is an excellent bill, which not only protects companion animals, but also creates another means of a quick, safe exit from a violent home for battered women and their children. In 2006, Susan Walsh’s riveting, personal testimoBeth ny spurred Sheehan COMMUNITY PRESS Maine’s legisGUEST COLUMNIST lature into enacting the nation’s first Pet Protection Orders. Her speech also became the catalyst for states across the nation to also act. “It wasn’t just the cats and dogs; it was the sheep and the chickens. I was terrified for their welfare. I knew if I were to leave, he wouldn’t hesitate to kill them. He had done it be-

fore.” (New York Times, April, 2006) Since then, 25 states (plus DC and Puerto Rico) have also quickly authorized Pet Protection Orders. The speed at which these states have legislated this issue speaks to the common understanding now of the powerful, sometimes deadly, connection between interpersonal violence and animal cruelty. Why is this law needed for the companion animals in homes of domestic violence? There is a growing body of research that shows the abusive male often uses a threat to the pet to silence to children about the violence that is occurring in the home and to restrain the woman from leaving the home. Animal cruelty is a “red flag,” a sentinel behavior, to look more closely at what also might be happening inside the house or within the communi-

EDITORIALS | LETTERS | COLUMNS | CH@TROOM

A few weeks ago an Indian Hill teacher wrote an editorial asking that we become better informed about the ongoing negotiations between the school board and the teachers’ union. I have done as the teacher asked and here are the facts as best as I can determine: 1) The teachers in the district operDavid ate under a Turner COMMUNITY PRESS union contract. 2) The latest GUEST COLUMNIST board proposed contract would run for this year and next. 3) Board members and teachers cannot speak directly to one another about the contract. 4) There is a new, statemandated system of teacher review which the district must implement, but will not use to determine compensation. 5) There is a decades-old system of teacher review and compensation, which, will remain the sole basis for teacher review throughout the term of this contract. 6) The existing system rewards our most dedicated and least able teachers equally.

ty. Often women delay leaving a violent home in order to protect their companion animals. Other women, after having left the home, return to keep the animals safe from harm. Moreover, many instances of animal cruelty take place in front of the children or women to elicit fear in them and to maintain control over them. I strongly encourage Ohio residents to call their state senators and state representatives today in support of SB 177, Pet Protection Orders. Act today. This bill has failed in the Ohio General Assembly before. Why should a woman in Ohio have to choose between her own safety and the safety of her companion animal? You can read the bill in its entirety here: http:// bit.ly/1aed5am. Beth Sheehan is a resident of Mount Washington.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question State Sen. Bill Seitz has introduced legislation which would redefine the standards for third parties to appear on Ohio’s ballot, including a minimum requirement of 56,000 signatures to get on the ballot and receiving at least 3 percent of the vote in a presidential election to stay on the ballot. Do you support Seitz’s proposal? Why or why not?

“Because I am ignorant of the current process, if any, for third parties getting onto the ballot, I can’t gauge the value of this proposal. If the proposal is more restrictive – or less restrictive – then I would like for Sen. Seitz to justify his reason for the change.” R.V.

“Yes, I do support Sen. Seitz’s proposal, especially be-

cause it could get the tea party hypocrites on the ballot against Democrats and Republicans. This can only mean more Democrats getting elected to legislative office as the conservative vote gets broken into smaller and more meaningless chunks!” TRog

How to prepare your pets for Thanksgiving

There is no meal of the year that quite compares to that of Thanksgiving. As you’re preparing for your holiday if you do not want your dog bumping you at the dinner table the time to plan for success is now. Remember if a behavior re-occurs it is because it has been reinforced. So, if you know in advance that your dog’s bumping at the table behavior is very probable here are a few ideas: You can re-arrange what happens in the environment immediately before the behavior is set into motion to give less value to the bumping behavior and more value to resting. Some suggestions include satiating your dog before you sit down by feeding him in advance or re-directing his attention by giving him a tasty steak bone to chew on or a foraging toy that will keep his attention for awhile, or taking him for a long walk prior to the meal. You can also teach your dog in advance an alternative behavior that will produce for him the same or more value than what he would get if he bumped you at the table

– while removing any positive consequences to the bumping behavior. So, begin by teaching Lisa the alternaDesatnik tive behavior COMMUNITY PRESS (like sitting or GUEST COLUMNIST laying down). Once on cue you can shape the behavior for longer durations before delivering reinforcement. Then, you can cue him to do the wanted behavior before you sit down to a meal and reinforce it. At the same time, if he begs you can simply push your plate in to the center of the table and turn your back to him while sitting. Practice. Practice Practice. Always make the wanted behavior easier and more valuable than the unwanted behavior. In addition to her public relations work, Lisa Desatnik is a pet trainer who uses positive strategies for teaching pets and their caregivers how to modify behaviors and solve problems.

Liqueur, salad recipes kick off holiday season Thanksgiving will be here before you know it and some of you are already preparing your grocery list. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday since it’s just about food, family and friends – no presents required. Yes, it can get stressful, especially if you’re Rita hosting the Heikenfeld feast. As I tell you RITA’S KITCHEN every year, it’s not only about the food, but who sits in the chairs. Some advice from one who has been there, done that: Parsley and whipping cream are great culinary BandAids. During one of my recent classes, the subject of limoncello for the holidays came up. If you want to give this as a gift or serve it at Christmas, it’s best to start the process now.

Double Citrus Limoncello

The great thing about this is it keeps just about forever in the freezer. You can use all lemons for classic limoncello. This year I made some with a combo of lemons and limes. It was different, and good. 2 pounds lemons, thick skinned 4 limes, thick skinned if you can find them 4 cups good quality 100 proof vodka 3 cups sugar 3 cups water

Pour vodka in large gallon glass jar or container. Wash fruit very well using hot water to remove wax coating. Pat dry. Remove zest with a vegetable peeler. The zest is the colored part. If some of the white part underneath the skin is visible, cut it off. That’s the pith and it’s very bitter (though it is the most nutritious part of the peel). If you can’t get it all off, do the best you can. Place zest in jar with vodka and cover. Let sit at room temperature for at least a week, or up to three weeks. The vodka will take on the color and flavor of the citrus as it steeps. Bring sugar and water to a simmer and stir until sugar dissolves and thickens a bit. Let cool and then add that to vodka mixture and stir. Strain and put in pretty bottles. Seal and chill in refrigerator for a couple of weeks, at least. To use, serve straight over ice chips, mix with sparkling wine or mineral water and a lemon curl, toss with fresh

Lemon peel steeps in vodka for 1-3 weeks to make limoncello, a liqueur originally made in Italy.THANKS

fruit, serve over ice cream, frozen yogurt or simple cake.

Holiday Waldorf salad

For Will, a Colerain Township reader. For the life of me, I can’t remember the origin of this recipe. I think it was from another reader whose name I obviously misplaced. Regardless, this is one of the tastiest Waldorf salads you’ll ever eat. Mix together: 11⁄2 to 2 pounds grapes, mixture of red and green, halved 2 ribs celery, sliced thin 1 cup raisins 1 cup chopped English walnuts 3 diced apples

Mix and blend with above: 1 cup mayonnaise 1 tablespoon vinegar or more to taste 1 cup milk

Let sit in refrigerator several hours before serving.

Hot buttered cider

Add more or less of any ingredient, to your taste. This is a nice offering before the Thanksgiving dinner. ⁄2 stick butter ⁄2 cup dark brown sugar 1 ⁄2 gallon apple cider 2 oranges, sliced and seeds removed Dash or two ground cloves 2 3-inch long cinnamon sticks 1 ⁄2 cup dark rum (optional)

1

1

Melt butter and add brown sugar. Add cider and cook until sugar is dissolved. Add orange slices, cloves, cinnamon sticks and rum. Bring to boil and then simmer 10 minutes. Serves about 10.

Easy. Affordable. Healthy. Now that’s a plan.

Readers want to know

Horseradish mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving. “How much horseradish do I add and when do I add it?” For three pounds potatoes, stir in a generous 1⁄4 cup bottled horseradish (not horseradish sauce) after mashing. Check your bottled horseradish if it’s been in the refrigerator a while. It should be nice and white. If it tastes vinegary or not really spicy, it’s old and needs to be replaced.

Ohio Medicaid battle lingering in Columbus with lawsuit, new bills Gannett News Service

Lung cancer can be curable if detected early.

Choose expertise.

When it comes to lung cancer, seeing a lung specialist means better outcomes. We're the region's most highly specialized lung cancer team and the first to bring low-dose radiation lung cancer screenings to the Cincinnati area. Our dedicated specialists work every day to provide you with the most advanced diagnostic and treatment options --- and hope.

COLUMBUS — Ohio’s seven-member Controlling Board may have voted two weeks ago to expand Medicaid in Ohio, but a slew of new bills and a pending Ohio Supreme Court case are seeking to ensure the board doesn’t get the last word. After the board’s 5-2 vote to accept federal money to expand Medicaid, six GOP lawmakers and two anti-abortion groups filed suit to stop Medicaid expansion unless the full Ohio Legislature grants approval. On Nov. 5, Attorney General Mike DeWine and State Solicitor Eric Murphy filed the state’s first response. Ohio’s seven-member Controlling Board and its Medicaid Department didn’t violate the state’s laws or its constitution when they acted to accept federal money to expand Medicaid, DeWine and Murphy said. In accepting federal money for the expansion, the lawmakers and antiabortion groups had said, the Controlling Board was acting against the “intent of the General Assembly,” violating the Ohio law that

created the board. Lawmakers had passed a budget provision to prohibit Medicaid expansion, although that provision was vetoed by Republican Gov. John Kasich. What’s more, the suit said, actions by Kasich’s administration to expand Medicaid overstep the constitutional bounds of the executive branch. But DeWine and Murphy said the Medicaid administration had received the authority to extend coverage to more Ohioans, so that decision isn’t at issue in the suit. As for whether the Controlling Board was violating Ohio law when it voted to accept federal money to pay for health care for those Ohioans, the response emphasized Kasich’s veto. Because of the veto, the response said, the “prevailing appropriations act” of the General Assembly did not include any prohibition of expanding Medicaid. That shouldn’t matter, according to Maurice Thompson, the conservative attorney representing the groups that are suing. Kasich’s veto changed the law from the “intent of the General Assembly,” Thompson has

said. The Republicans who have filed suit now have 10 days to file their evidence and briefs. The Ohio Supreme Court is trying to speed the suit along, since the Medicaid expansion to more than 300,000 new Ohioans is set to take effect Jan. 1. Meanwhile, other Republican lawmakers are trying to take non-legal action, either to make the Medicaid expansion more palatable to them or to keep the Controlling Board from being able to have a similar vote in the future. State Reps. Christina Hagan, R-Alliance, and Ron Young, R-Leroy, are sponsoring a bill that would limit the Controlling Board’s authority. The board can currently approve requests to accept federal money beyond what the General Assembly has accepted through a new law. The bill would limit the Controlling Board to accepting 3.5 percent more money in an area in which the General Assembly has approved some federal money and1percent more in an area in which the General Assembly has not passed a law.

Three opportunities for green holiday fun By Shelly Sack

indianhill@communitypress.com

Green is usually one of the traditional colors of the holiday season, but three Cincinnati area organizations are going a step further and partnering to bring the ecological green to the normally store-bought holiday season. Grailville Retreat & Program Center, Gorman Heritage Farm and Turner Farm have separate hands-on activities, with a binding theme of “going green.” “We are in several organizations together and after a shared dinner decided to promote the shared opportunities we have, instead of tripping over each other,” said Terrie Puckett, Grailville program and volunteer manager. “Our holiday workshops seemed like a natural fit to advertise all three together as a great way to spend a family holiday.” » Grailville, at 932 O’Bannonville Road, in Loveland, is hosting a “Homegrown Holiday” from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7.

Safety Village gives 5-, 6-year-olds ways to avoid accidents By Jason Hoffman jhoffman@communitypress.com

MONTGOMERY — Since 1992, Montgomery has hosted a safety camp for 5- and 6-year-olds, giving children the opportunity to learn about being safe in a variety of situations and also interact with police in a positive environment. “One of the biggest things is the children get to see police officers in a positive situation,” said Pat Giblin, Montgomery Police Department officer. “This starts the relationship and it continue throughout school with the DARE program and the safety village is also a great way to start a conversation with parents.” After attending the Montgomery Safety Village, Giblin said, parents tell him their children are more likely to ask questions and talk with them about issues like pedestrian and fire safety as well as what to do when they encounter strangers who want to talk with them. The children spend their time during the village in groups learning about pedestrian and bicycle safety in a miniature, makeshift city complete with crosswalks, four-lane roads and stop signs on the Swaim Park basketball court. “It’s interesting – things are different all the time,” said Chris Hartkmeier of Montgomery, who volunteers on the safety staff. “We have to watch the kids and can’t let them out of sight – it’s fun.”

Hartkmeier said the attendees usually pick up the safety concepts well and have fun. Blue Ash Police Department officer Chris Zielinski and his K-9 partner Nicco did a demonstration of their work during the first day of the village. The duo demonstrated how K-9 officers locate items like drugs and the discipline it takes to be an effective unit. “It’s fun, it lets the kids see what dogs can do and get a real perspective,” Zielinski said. “Through the demonstration we show the K-9 dogs are very friendly.” Want to know more about Montgomery government and community?

That candy, can-do spirit is alive

Just north of downtown Montgomery, Kent Morris Orthodontics hosted a candy exchange program Nov. 5, to benefit both Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Dental Clinic and overseas troops. Participating children were given their choice of receiving either $1 per pound for their candy or donating the money to the dental clinic. All collected candy was given to the local Army Reserve as a treat for troops. To date, the orthodontics office has collected 350 pounds of candy and is accepting donations through the end of November. As a treat, kids were rewarded with several free fun events such as Kona Ice treats, bouncy stations, face painting and a strolling magician. Local Army Reserve representatives were also in attendance.
