Sycamore to upgrade its crosswalk signals By Leah Fightmaster

Sycamore Township is upgrading its crosswalk signals to match state standards and make some intersections safer for pedestrians. Greg Bickford, planning and zoning director/acting administrator, said the township is going to pay to replace the current crosswalk signs that Hamilton County owns and install signals that count down the seconds un-

til the traffic signal turns green for the street the crosswalk is across. There are 48 crossing signs that will be replaced, Bickford said, and the township would pay about $102 per unit. He added that the county agreed to install them if the township buys the signals. He added that the count-down signals are up to the Ohio Department of Transportation’s safety standards, but surpass those of the county.

Bickford said the change will make the intersection at Montgomery and Kenwood roads less dangerous, because pedestrians will know how long they have to cross the wide lanes and high traffic levels on those roads. He added that the intersection could get a video camera there as well, which would allow police and the township to see a problem and possibly change the traffic signals’ timing to alleviate it.

Sycamore Township will be replacing 48 crosswalk signals in the township, including ones at the interseciton of Montgomery Road and Kenwood Road. LEAH FIGHTMASTER/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Thanking veterans ... ‘AS WE SHOULD EVERYDAY’

By Jeanne Houck

One by one the old veterans stood and saluted. Minutes before they had shuffled or used a cane to get to their seats at Indian Hill’s Veterans Day observance. But they squared their shoulders and rose to their feet to honor their branch of the military service at the first strains of “The Army Goes Rolling Along,” “Anchors Aweigh,” “The Marines’ Hymn” and “The

Air Force Song.” Younger veterans also snapped to attention at Indian Hill’s third annual Veterans Day observance, held Nov. 11 around the village’s Veterans Memorial at the corner of Shawnee Run and Drake roads. Indian Hill Mayor Mark Tullis, who moderated the program, encouraged people to express their gratitude to veterans, “Today, as we should everyday.”

Cross country team helps military families By Forrest Sellers

Indian Hill cross country students have won some new fans. And it wasn’t during a competition. Each year the students collect and then deliver school supplies and other items to Pierce Elementary School in Fort Knox, Ky. For seven years, chemistry teacher and cross country coach Susan Savage has coordinated the charity drive. “These children have parents who are deployed,” said Savage. “It’s giving back. That is the goal.” Savage said she was informed of the need for supplies by a friend who teaches at the school. Donation boxes were set up at the start of the school year. Savage said about 20 boxes are delivered to Pierce Elementary each year.

For the cross country students it’s more than just collecting supplies for a cause. “You’re there with the kids and getting to know them,” said freshman Patrick Giroux, of Madeira. The items are given to students in preschool through the third grade. Savage said the Indian Hill students spend time with a specific grade each visit. “It’s a fun experience,” said senior Connie Yin, of Kenwood. “You spend the whole day with these kids who are adorable.” Senior Joe Majchszak, of Indian Hill, said the experience is also a good way to bond with teammates during the trip. Savage said proceeds raised from bake sales go toward paying for the bus used for the trip, which is made during the students’ fall break. She said she plans to continue the donation drive for Pierce Elementary for as long as she coaches.

Several Sycamore High School students created some homemade holiday cheer by creating cards for soldiers serving overseas.THANKS TO ERIKA DAGGETTE

Holiday cheer is in the cards By Shelly Sack

Several Sycamore High School students created some homemade holiday cheer by creating cards for soldiers serving overseas. Soldiers’ Angels, a North Carolina-based volunteer non-profit, has worked for the past 10 years to benefit men and women serving in the Armed Forces. It distributes nearly 60,000 holiday cards each year. This year, students in teacher Ashley Gleim’s social studies classes were invited to create cards and

about 10 students met the challenge. Senior Marissa Shor, 17, of Montgomery, said she made Hanukah and Christmas pop-up cards and also enlisted her sister and several friends to contribute. “I wanted to bring some holiday cheer to the soldier overseas, where it’s not always cheery,” she said. Gleim said this is the first year her class has helped with the holiday cards, but she tries hard to find opportunities for students to support to others from around the country. “Last year, after Sandy Hook, we spent time mak-

ing snowflakes to welcome the students back to class in the new year,” Gleim said. “So much comes up as things happen in our country. We’ll make efforts to do other things as well. It gives an opportunity for students in Cincinnati to see how they can impact people and bring home the idea we are one nation and need to help eachother out.” For instructions about cards, visit or mail cards postdated by Nov. 16 to Soldiers’ Angels Christmas , 5068 U.S.Highway 64 East, Franklinville, N.C., 27248.

Aringtons lead Indian Hill By Scott Springer and Mark Motz

INDIAN HILL — Practice opened in late October for girls basketball teams in the Indian Hill Journal coverage area. The following is a rundown of the high school squads waiting to open their season.

Indian Hill

» Under first year Coach Chris Arington, Indian Hill had a 13-9 year last winter and was 10-4 for third place in the Cincinnati Hills League. His daughters, Jessica and Sam, return as a senior and sophomore to anchor the Lady Braves along with sophomore Lexi Carrier and senior Jessica Marsh. In addition to those four starters, freshman Ellie Schaub should see considerable time. Sam Arington led Indian Hill in scoring as a freshman at 11.5 per game with Jessica averaging 11.2. Carrier shot over 41 percent from the field and was third in the league in steals at 2.9 per game. In postseason honors, Jessica Arington was CHL first team, Sam Arington and Lexi Carrier made second team and Marsh made honorable mention. Rounding out the Lady Braves are juniors Peri Bigelow, Mikayla Germain and Mary Ann Miller, plus freshman Karen Folz. The Lady Braves start the season at Fairfield Nov. 23.

Cincinnati Country Day

» The Indians went 17-6 last season and finished second behind Summit Country Day in the Miami Valley Conference. Head coach John Snell graduated two players from that team and returns three seniors. Back are twin sister guards,

Sydney and Shelley Menifee. Sydney was the team’s secondleading scorer last year; Snell said both sister need to up their scoring output this season for the Indians to be successful. Also back – and also needed for additional scoring – are sophomore Missy DieckmanMeyer and senior Kat Mates, both post players in their second seasons with the team. “A lot of the younger kids are stepping up, pushing for a starting spot or to get playing time,” Snell said. “They’re making

progress.” As for style of play, “I think we’re going to have to be an upand-down team to give our offense a chance to score,” Snell said. “Defensively, we’ll press to force the up-and-down. I think we’ve got the athletes to get up and down the floor with anyone. I just don’t know how well we will put the ball in the basket.” Snell gave Summit the edge in the MVC race, but thinks his team will be in the title hunt, too. CCD opens the season on the road Nov. 25 at Finneytown and doesn’t play again until a week later when it hosts Mariemont Dec. 2.

Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy

» The Eagles posted an 8-14 record last year, including a 5-8 mark in the Miami Valley Conference. Former NBA player Ronnie Grandison returns for his second stint as head coach with what he said should be a muchimproved team. Returning is senior shooting guard/small forward Marissa Koob, who led the team in scoring and rebounding as a junior. She committed to play college basketball at the University of Charleston next season. Also back are junior Paige Disagie and Samantha Ross, who is coming back from injuries her sophomore year. Junior Naomi Grandison, the coach’s daughter, transferred to CHCA from the Lakota district to play for her father. Sophomore Kat Williams returns for her second

season at the point. “We’re athletic,” coach Grandison said. “I would say we’re going to get up and down the floor, play up tempo, try to push the ball. We’ll be a little bit of everything (on defense). We’re going to go hard.” Which they’ll have to do if they want to improve their fourth-place finish in the MVC a year ago. “From what I saw last year, Summit is the one that always comes up with a good team and North College Hill always has good athletes,” Grandison said. “I think we’ll fare pretty well, though.” CHCA opens at home Nov. 22 against Little Miami before traveling to face Monroe Nov. 26.

Mount Notre Dame

» Dr. Scott Rogers returns to coach Mount Notre Dame after a couple of seasons on hiatus. Between 2001 and 2007, Rogers won two sectional titles, one state runner-up and two Division I state championships. Stepping aside to assist in 2007, MND went on to make it three of four state titles. From 2008 into the 2010-11 season, Rogers coached at Indian Hill. He inherits a team that was 14-11 last season and 6-4 in the GGCL-Scarlet Division (now the Girls Greater Catholic League). Top returners for the Cougars are junior Naomi Davenport and sophomore Abbie Scholz who were first team allleague. Junior Blair Carlin

made second team for MND. Rogers will also be counting on senior Sara Voss and juniors Maddy South and Dani Kissel. South and Kissell were in last year’s starting lineup along with Davenport and Carlin. Round out the MND varsity are seniors Libby Hoctor and Kristi Duncan, juniors Mary Lavelle and Nicole Crace and sophomores Celina King and Abby Weeks. Mount Notre Dame starts the season at Lakota West Nov. 26. The Cougars return home to host Seton Dec. 5. “I like their commitment to getting better,” Rogers said.

Ursuline Academy

» The Lions went 20-5 last season on the way to a Girls Greater Catholic League championship. Third-year head coach Keith Starks – the former University of Cincinnati star – graduated five seniors from that team, including two starters. Senior Sarah Reilly – who committed to play next season at the United States Naval Academy – returns for her third season as a starting forward. Also back are junior guards Aly Schirmer and Megan Oglivee. Senior forward Christie Miller is back after missing her junior season with an ACL injury. “After that, we’re pretty inexperienced,” Starks said. “We have two freshmen who are going to play varsity. It’s going to be a process. We should be good by the end of the season, but it’s See HOOPS, Page A8

going to take some time.” Look for the Lions to play a lot of man-to-man defense and press in an effort to elevate the tempo of the game. “With an inexperienced team, you want to give them a chance to get some easy baskets in transition,” Starks said. While Ursuline is the defending league champ, Starks said Mount Notre Dame should be the team to beat in the GGCL. The Cougars return five starters, as well as former state champion coach Scott Rogers. McAuley, with a pair of Division I college prospects at guard, should also challenge for the title. Ursuline opens the season Nov. 23 at Cincinnati State facing Sycamore.

Moeller moves past Elder to face Colerain By Scott Springer

CINCINNATI — Just as they did in their run to the state title last year, Moeller will have to get by Colerain to continue north. The Crusaders handed Elder their first shutout of the year with a 24-0 victory Nov. 16 at Nippert Stadium. The win put them against Colerain for the second-straight year as the Cardinals defeated Pickerington Central 3820 to earn another shot at Moeller. Moeller/Elder Part II was scoreless for the first 12 minutes. Then, the second quarter belonged to Moeller with two scores coming within two minutes of each other. At the start of the stanza, Gus Ragland made a

nice ball fake and kept the pumpkin to score from eight yards out just 27 seconds into the frame. A couple of minutes later, the Crusaders were in scoring position again thanks to a pick by Ohio State-bound Sam Hubbard. The drive stalled, but sophomore kicker Matthew Coghlin drilled a 37yarder to put Moeller up 10-0 with 9:33 left in the half. For Elder, the first half was uneventful with top running threat Chris Schroer being held to seven yards on three lugs. Sophomore quarterback Peyton Ramsey was forced to throw 23 times, completing 13, but with interceptions by Hubbard and senior Will Mercurio. “Our defense played really well,” Moeller

Coach John Rodenberg said. “I think they were forced to throw the ball a little bit more than they wanted to. That’s a great football team and we came up with a great shutout. That’s tough to do.” After a scoreless third quarter, Moeller senior quarterback Gus Ragland found the endzone again. This time, it was by breaking several tackles and diving in after a 69-yard gallop. Ragland finished as the game’s top rusher with 126 yards on 21 totes. “Gus is the heart and soul of the offense,” Rodenberg said. “We depend on him to make good decisions.” The icing on this GCLSouth cake came when Will Mercurio picked off his second pass of the game and rolled for a 58-

yard touchdown in front of the Moeller student section. “We’ve been playing pass coverage a lot better lately and I thought the kids did a nice job,” Ro-

denberg said. In all, the Crusaders intercepted Elder quarterback Ramsey five times. By default, he was also Elder’s top rusher with 43 yards as senior Chris

Schroer was held to 20. “Chris Schroer got hurt last week and had a bad ankle and a bad knee,” Elder Coach Doug Ramsey said. “We knew we were limited. We had to put a whole lot of the game on Peyton.” For Moeller, Ragland threw just 15 times, completing seven. Moeller outrushed Elder 243-63. Doing that against Colerain won’t be as easy. The Cardinals’ bread and butter is running the football. Last year’s contest was a 24-21 Moeller victory. “It’s going to be a challenge,” Rodenberg said. “We’ll see what happens next week. It’ll be fun.” Moeller and Colerain face off Nov. 23 at Mason Dwire Field at Atrium Stadium at Mason High School.

CHCA’s quest for perfection comes up short By Mark D. Motz

MASON — Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy won a lot of the key battles - first downs (16-10), passing yards (224-167) and total offense (314-276) - but lost the war. The Eagles’ quest for a perfect football season ended in the Division V football regional semifinals Nov.16 when they lost 31-17 to Hamilton Badin. CHCA finishes the season 11-1, while Badin improved to 10-2 and advanced to face West Jef-

ferson in the regional finals Nov. 23. “They played so tough and physical,” said CHCA head coach Eric Taylor of

the Rams. “They did a great job of capitalizing on every mistake we made. They earned the win.” Badin started capitalizing early. Facing third and long on the third play from scrimmage, Rams quarterback Zach Larkin hit Cole Heflin with an 84yard touchdown pass and a 7-0 lead less than 90 seconds into the game. It was the first time CHCA trailed all season and the Eagles never took a lead. They did force a tie at 14-14.

After Larkin hit Dominic Valentino from four yards out in the second period, CHCA senior quarterback Conner Osborne found Michael Lantz from 12 yards late in the first half and Adam Baker from 34 on the first drive of the second, but Badin scored 10 unanswered points in the third period. “They were battle-tested,” Taylor said. “They’ve been down before and that stuff shows in a game like this. “Once we started getting momentum and making a few plays, they

found a way to answer and get the momentum back.” It started with Tyler Williams’ 36-yard field goal to break the tie and Cody Boxrucker’s oneyard touchdown run to make it 24-14. Alex Bertrams answered with a 36-yard field goal for the Eagles with 10 minutes to play, but that was all the closer CHCA got. The Eagles threw an interception and fumbled a punt return to set up Heflin’s 24-yard TD run with 4:17 to play to close the scoring.

While disappointed with the result, Taylor said it was a special season for a special senior class. “To go 10-0, 11-0 is an amazing accomplishment,” he said. “(Our seniors) made the playoffs all four years. I started teaching a lot of those guys when they were in seventh grade, so it’s been very close with them for a long time. “That’s another reason this hurts. You hate to see them go after all they accomplished and all they did for this program.”

Author knows little of tea party, Taliban Dear Mr. Baker, Based upon your musings that appeared in the Indian Hill Journal it is apparent that you know very little about either the Taliban or the tea party. I am the grandmother next door who raised three children in this community. They attended our public schools where I was active in the PTO and the Boosters. I was, and continue to be active in my church, serving as a Sunday school teacher and on numerous committees. I have served on several community boards and volunteered with numerous local agencies.

I do not believe that our local police forces should be militarized. I believe that this country was founded on Judeo-Christian values and that we should enjoy our gift of freedom of religion. Members of our military should not be prohibited from praying in public; a chaplain cannot be told to remove the

Democracy slips away when the press fails to be objective. I believe in the Federalist system established by our founders and the three branches of our government. The expansion of the size of the Executive branch is robbing us of those keystones of our foundations. The Executive Orders enacted by this President usurp the authority of the states and legislative branches. I am the tea party. Susan Holzapfel is a 32-year resident of Indian Hill.

Author’s tea party comments sound bizarre

I read with interest James Baker’s OP-ED piece in the Nov. 7 Community Press calling for all “Real Republicans” to rise up and throw tea party enthusiasts into the nearest ditch. Given that Mr. Baker believes that the tea party is the U.S. equivalent of an international terrorist organization it is not surprising that he would call for their ex-communication from his beloved Republican party. After all, what decent person would want to associate with such a bunch of womanhating, environment-spoiling, government-despising, Obamacare-ruining theocrats and fascists? Mr. Baker asks, “Is there a difference between tea party

portance of limited candidates and the government and the Taliban? The level of dangers of more and violence is the only more power flowing to difference I can see.” an unaccountable federMr. Baker should al bureaucracy. look harder.

something that they think is unworkable, hurtful and damaging to the country? Now that we have learned that the Affordable Care Act was sold to the public on a passel of distortions, if not outright lies, it seems downright strange for any Republican (real or imagined) to demand obeisance to its survival. “Repeal and replace” has been the Republican Party’s official position on Obamacare for the last three years, but when you only control one half of one branch of government that’s hard to do. Tea partiers make a mistake when they seek to defeat Republican office holders who fail to meet a standard of ideological purity that turns off too

many Independents and moderates. Mr. Baker makes the same mistake when he demands that principled conservatives need to be run out of “his” party because they haven’t been sufficiently helpful to a Democratic president and his progressive agenda. Worse though, is Mr. Baker’s crude caricature of tea partiers as intolerant fascists and terrorists. While this would sound about right coming from the likes of Rachel Maddow or Al Sharpton, it sounds bizarre coming from anyone who calls themselves a “real Republican.”

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Several major retailers and malls will be open for holiday shopping throughout Thanksgiving Day. Is this a good idea and do you plan to plan to take advantage of the extended hours? Why or why not?

“Enough is enough. Give it a break. Not only for would-be shoppers but the retailers’ employees. They deserve a life as well. All stay home, watch football. Eat turkey. Relax for one day.” T.B.

“I think the extended hours are horrible - so unfair to the store employees who will have no time at all with their families, and so wrong to commercialize a holiday to the point that it disappears altogether. “But we the consumers have brought this upon ourselves, with our willingness first to get up at dawn on Friday and then go out at midnight on Thanksgiving. Next year I am sure stores will be open all day. “The only way to end this is to simply not go. I have never shopped on this weekend, at all. I wish others would also spend this time with family. “The retailers will offer the deals later if we just don’t respond to the Thanksgiving

NEXT QUESTION Do you think President Obama will be able to keep his promise that Americans will be able to keep canceled health insurance policies for a year as companies and consumers adjust to the new demands of the health care law. Why or why not? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to with Chatroom in the subject line.



“This is a very stupid idea and no I will not play into the greed of corporations. What is Thanksgiving but a day of thanks when families can get together. Now I hear that Kroger is going to be open ’til 5 p.m. to accommodate late shopping needs. “Corporations are becoming less and less family oriented and the stupid people that keep playing into their hands and shopping are just as much to fault. Why do we keep pushing society to the needs of greed? What is the old saying: put off today what you can do tomorrow. “Wake up people, if no one shows up on holidays to shop, I’m sure the stores will extend the

sales to the following day to entice all your shopping needs. Don’t be stupid, play it smart - all your going to do is complain about the crowds, salespeople, and that you could not find what you wanted anyway.” D.J.

“No, I and the rest of the extended family (friends) will be dozing, shooting pool, and generally grousing about too much turkey. This is what Thanksgiving is all about. “If any of my guests were to leave early to shop they would not be invited next year. This is the one holiday that no matter what your beliefs, politics, or any other hang-ups they do not matter. It is an occasion for those of us fortunate enough to have the means to put together this repast to be thankful. “My sincere hope is that no one shows up at those stores. If dinner and discussions with loved ones mean so little to you think about giving that time away from the table to help serve the many less fortunate. That would be a true celebration of all you have, to give something to others.”

holidays till long after Thanksgiving, and especially not on Black Friday. “The over-commercialism of Christmas and fighting over silly bargains completely defeats the message of the season for Christians who should be giving to the poor and less fortunate” TRog


“As one who appreciates the historic and the present-day meaning of Thanksgiving Day I am troubled by the commercial intrusions that have so distracted our nation from what has been handed down to us as a solemn duty. “Our finest presidents, including George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, saw the need for America to acknowledge the benevolent intervention of almighty God into the affairs of our nation, most notably in times of dire need. “To refocus our minds from giving thanks to something as trivial as shopping ‘til we drop when we have dozens of other days suitable for that purpose should cause the entire nation to rethink our priorities. There is no better opportunity to do that than Thursday, Nov. 28.”

“The extended hours may be a good idea for the stores, but I never do any shopping for the

family. Just because retailers open their doors does not mean I have to shop. “We will not shop on Thanksgiving Day, nor do I shop the day after Thanksgiving. Instead we will do as we have always done donate time serving dinner at a homeless shelter and enjoying dinner with our family being thankful.” S.K.

“Not. Two reasons [1] Thanksgiving has been a favorite holiday of mine because it (used to be) more or less a non-commercial event. Holiday and family joy without all the $$$. [2] I am not big on the bargain hunting experience. I go into the stores around Dec. 10, middle of the week, avoid most of the crowds, and move into the rest of it.” F.N.

“Retailers are opening their doors Thanksgiving evening to accommodate shoppers who want to begin their holiday shopping. If this offends you, don’t go to the stores, stay home - eat leftovers, shop online in the comfort of your home, or wait until Black Friday morning to begin your shopping in the stores.”

Fun at the castle

he local nonprofit organization Lighthouse Youth Services recently had its annual fall fundraiser at Bishop’s Place Castle, the Clifton home of Jakki and Len Haussler. “Fashion, Food, Friends and Fun at the Castle“ featured an afternoon of boutique shopping, lunch provided by some of Cincinnati’s finest restaurants and Cincinnati Enquirer Food Critic Polly Campbell as

Thanksgiving recipes feature cranberries

Rita’s do-ahead, baked candied cranberries Another recipe that changes each time I make it. I really like this version. If you substitute Splenda, use the kind that measures out just like sugar. Now if you don’t want to use the liqueur, though it’s in the oven long enough for at least some of the alcohol, and probably most, to bake out, substitute 1⁄4 cup water or cranberry juice. When we were kids, mom had us kids pick through the berries and remove “tails” and foreign bits of whatever that might be in the bag. That was in the dark ages! Now cranberries are so well processed that all you have to do is wash them. 1 bag fresh cranberries, washed and picked over 11⁄2 cups sugar or to taste 1 ⁄4 cup brandy or cognac 1 ⁄4 cup frozen orange concentrate, thawed but not diluted 1 cup chopped walnuts

Mix together everything but nuts. Sprinkle nuts on top and push them in a bit. Bake uncovered until berries have absorbed most of the liquid and most have popped, about 45 minutes. Can be done ahead. Great served warm, room temperature or chilled.

Marilyn Hoskin’s cranberry celebration salad Here’s the salad so many of you requested. Marilyn, a Milford reader, developed this from an Ocean Spray recipe and by reading the ingredients on the Kroger salad. Try substituting


cherry gelatin if you like. Ginny Moorehouse’s recipe, equally delicious, is on my blog. She’s been making her version for years.

15 oz. crushed pineapple, drained, juice reserved 1 ⁄2 cup cranberry juice 2 tablespoons lemon juice 3 oz. raspberry gelatin 15 oz. can whole cranberry sauce 1 ⁄2 cup chopped walnuts 1 ⁄2 cup celery, chopped (optional, but good)

MEDICARE Advantage

Boil pineapple juice, cranberry juice and lemon juice together. Add gelatin. Remove from heat and stir in cranberries. Put in fridge till almost set. Stir in nuts, celery and pineapple.

Next week, our Community Press kitchens will be buzzing with activity, from drying the bread for the stuffing to making “must have” traditional pumpkin desserts. A reminder: Give your frozen turkey enough time to thaw. My experience is that it takes a lot longer to thaw than Rita the packHeikenfeld age states. RITA’S KITCHEN If it’s not thawed in time, put the whole thing, wrapped, in cool water and change the water about every half hour until thawed. Also remember those who are alone, or can’t get out. Send a card, give them a call or, best idea, invite them to your table. And no matter how you spend this holiday, remember also that having some place to go is home, having someone to love is family and having both is a blessing.

Rita’s baked cranberries can be made ahead to help with Thanksgiving planning.THANKS

he City of Blue Ash continued its fine tradition of T honoring U.S. Veterans by celebrating the special Nov. 11 morning at the Bicentennial Veterans Memorial

Dance-a-thon benefits Cancer Community For the second year in a row, Jeremy and Desireé Mainous, franchise owners of the Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Blue Ash, have leveraged their dance talents and organizational skills to help beat cancer by choosing Cancer Support Community to receive the proceeds of their annual Swinging for

Charity Gala and Dancea-thon. They presented a check to CSC for $2,162 that will be used to help fund the professionally led programs of support, education, and hope that are offered completely free of charge for people with cancer, their families and friends, and cancer

survivors. The event once again included live dance music by Leroy Ellington and his E-funk Band as well as recorded favorites provided by a DJ. Attendees enjoyed dancing, of course, as well as the opportunity to take group dance classes and enjoy performances by professional

and pro-am dancers throughout the evening. The Arthur Murray owners added something special this year to support those fighting cancer – four free dance lessons prior to the event for Cancer Support Community participants affected by cancer. “It’s important to keep


moving through cancer with activities you enjoy that also provide some gentle exercise,” CSC program director Kelly Schoen said. “The opportunity to learn some dance moves through free lessons was a wonderful opportunity for our participants to get up and get moving, while lifting their spirits and having fun at the same time.”

Executive Director Rick Bryan expressed CSC’s gratitude. “We really appreciate the support from Arthur Murray and are so impressed by how Jeremy and Desireé are able to raise a family, run a successful business and still find time to put on this event and provide dance lessons to support people in our community who are battling cancer.”

From left: Cancer Support Community Executive Director Rick Bryan (Blue Ash) and Development Committee Chair Chris Dolle (Wyoming) accept a contribution of $2,162 from Arthur Murray Dance Studio owners Desire and Jeremy Mainous that was raised at the 2013 Swinging for Charity event organized by Arthur Murray to support people in our community who are fighting cancer.

Turkeys’ lives are good – until they’re not By Jeanne Houck

There are about 270 turkeys at Greenacres Farm in Indian Hill that hope you don’t read this story. That’s because they are candidates for as many Thanksgiving tables.

Once again, the Greenacres Farm Store is offering turkeys for sale – male or female, black or white, 16 to 30 pounds. You can call 891-4227 to place an order for the large birds, which will be sold for $4 a pound. All the turkeys will be available for pickup Wednesday, Nov. 27, the

day before Thanksgiving, at the farm store at 8255 Spooky Hollow Road. Carter Randolph of Blue Ash, president of Greenacres, said the farm’s turkeys are extra tasty because they are moved around every couple of days to dine on fresh grass, bugs and

worms. Banks Baker of Indian Hill, director of agriculture at Greenacres, helps take care of the turkeys. Baker said he used to raise pigs and sometimes was a little sad to send them to slaughter – especially the ones that responded to their

names and nuzzled his knees. With the turkeys at Greenacres, Baker said, “We give them the best life we can, until they give us their life.” Greenacres’ farm store is open year-round from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, selling meats and produce in season.

Deregulation has led to lower utility rates for Ohio customers, but its also led to a lot of confusion and aggravation among some homeowners. Some are confused by the variety of different rates offered, while others are aggravated at the house calls and phone calls they are receiving. Dozens of utility companies have entered Ohio looking for business. The sales tactics of some have led people to believe they were getting called upon by Duke Energy itself. Consumers tell me when they questioned why the salesman wanted to see their utility bill they were told, “Oh, it’s all right, I work with Duke Energy.” In fact, while Duke does bill on behalf of these utility companies, the companies are actually in competition with Duke. Duke Energy’s Sally Thelen said Duke is aware of this and consumers should not be pressured. “Some of the concerns have been the aggressive tactics. Some folks have told us they’re feeling bullied. I would advise customers to read the contract,” Thelen said. Some of the contracts have grace periods allowing you to switch once you sign up, while other contracts have a cancellation fee if you choose to switch.

In addition to making house calls, some utility companies are sending out letters Howard offering Ain incentives HEY HOWARD! to get you to sign up. Incentives include such things as frequent flier miles and a $50 debit card. But, perhaps most annoying for some homeowners are the phone calls which can be incessant. “It got to where every time we’d sit down to eat it seemed like they had a camera in the house because that’s when the phone would ring,” said Joe Ann Kern. “I’ve just had them show up at my door several times over the summer always wanting me to switch, but I always turned them down. I don’t really understand it,” Robert Gillum said. Well, in order to understand it you have to check page two of your Duke Energy bill. There, you’ll find Duke’s Price To Compare section, which tells you the rate Duke is charging for electricity. Currently, it’s 6.13 cents per kilowatt hour. Dozens of companies offer competing electric rates and the best way to find them is to check the

Ohio Public Utilities Commission website for its Apples to Apples Price Comparison chart. I found comparable rates for as low as 4.95 cents per kilowatt hour. But, you need to check the terms of the offer to see how long the contract will last and whether there are any cancellation charges. Next, you can check Duke’s price for natural gas, which is found at the top of page two of your Duke bill. It says Duke’s price is .5596 cents. Compare that to the PUCO Comparison Chart for natural gas prices and you’ll find rates as low as .495 cents. But, once again, you need to carefully check the terms of the contract including the contractual period and cancellation charges. If you switch your electric or gas from Duke Energy nothing will change with your bill – or the connections to your home. Duke will still deliver the electricity and the gas through the same lines and the “Transportation Charges” will continue to show up on your bill.

PHOENIX, ARIZONA — If Pharmacist of the Year, Dr. Gene Steiner, had a nickel for every time someone leaned over the counter and whispered, “Do you have anything that can improve my memory,” he would be a rich man today. It’s a question he’s heard countless times in his 45-year career. He has seen families torn apart by the anguish of memory loss and mental decline, a silent condition that threatens the independent lifestyle that seniors hold so dearly.
