New Hope, old faithful

Church has become a cornerstone of community By Jeanne Houck

jhouck@communitypress.com

Need a place to test police officers’ skills on bikes? New Hope Baptist Church. People to distribute food to the poor? New Hope’s congregation. A Loveland police chaplain? New Hope’s pastor, Bill Hounshell. Oh, and how about spiritual solace? New Hope Baptist Church. The Loveland church’s willingness to meet community needs and share use of its large church and parking lot on LovelandMadeira Road has made it a highprofile civic leader. That’s why Linda Cox was thrilled that her first official duty as a Loveland City Council member was to present New Hope Baptist Church with a proclamation

recognizing its 15th anniversary Dec. 13. “As a former city staff member, I witnessed Pastor Bill and New Hope members participate in many city events, including parades, special events at Nisbet Park, presenting a live Christmas nativity or wherever they felt they could help,” said Cox, who was sworn onto council in early December. She retired earlier in 2009 after serving as Loveland clerk of council and administrative assistant since 1991. “In the five years since God provided their church building on Loveland-Madeira Road, they’ve hosted community events ranging from youngsters’ basketball camp to senior citizens’ events,” Cox said. “They’ve lived up to their

motto of, ‘Where God guides, He provides.’” The proclamation presented by Cox was signed by Loveland Mayor Rob Weisgerber and says “our entire community has benefited from the fine Christian influence this church has shown throughout the years and through the many facets of its outreach ministries.” Said Hounshell: “We are honored to serve in a wonderful community.” New Hope Baptist Church held its first Sunday worship service in a vacant church building on West Loveland Avenue Dec. 4, 1994. It held its first Sunday worship service at the new church it built on Loveland-Madeira Road Aug. 1, 2004. The congregation has min-

istries for preschoolers, older children, students, singles, men, women, seniors - even sportsmen. Its Web site at www.newhope onthehill.com shows a lengthy list of weekly meetings and offers free audio and video of sermons online. Hounshell said there is plenty of room for more New Hope members. “We believe the Lord has called forth a mighty work here for His glory and we would love to have you join us in what God is doing,” he said. “From our special programs for youth and children, to our wholelife church and family ministries, you will find people who love God and serve one another.”

McClanahan

When the Loveland City School District Board of Eduation meets again Jan. 19, it will do so without two of the guiding forces behind the district’s academic success. Former Superintendent Kevin Boys has left the district to become president of Shawnee State Community College. He has been replaced, for now,

by Bill Sears, a former Lebanon schools superintendent and most recently director of curriculum and instruction in the Little Miami District. The board continues to seek a permanent replacement for Boys; Sears has said he is not interested in the job fulltime. Former Board President Judy

McClanahan has been replaced on the board by Katie Bontrager. McClanahan served three terms on the board, but did not seek reelection in November. She will devote more time to helping homeless people.

1.) When calling for quotes…questions you have should be answered clearly, and will be a good indicator of how your experience will go.

3.) Always ask for “prices per gram” (not pennyweight) for each type of karat. If you don’t get an answer… DON’T SELL!

2.) Always have your items weighed and separated by karat in your presence. If you can’t be present…DON’T SELL!

4.) Never meet anyone to sell your items. 5.) Please, never mail your jewelry…EVER!

If you follow these pointers, you will be in good shape and ready to sell safely and securely! We hope that you consider us, but even if you don’t, these tips won’t let you down.

The Clermont County commissioners voted Monday, Nov. 30, to settle a lawsuit with Larry Smith Contractors, Inc. The settlement will cost the county $250,000. The commissioners contracted with Larry Smith Contractors, of Cleves, Ohio, for an assessment project. The project, on Ohio 131, provided sanitary sewers near Miami Meadows Park in Miami Township, said county Administrator David Spinney. The claim is from 2003 and the original contract price was about $1.1 million, said Clermont County assistant prosecutor attorney Mary Lynne Birck. After starting the project,

Larry Smith Contractors issued a change order for more than $658,000, Birck said. “The whole issue was about whether or not the specifications and geotechnical report that was part of the specifications adequately represented the subsurface conditions,” Spinney said. “Larry Smith Contractors said they spent an extraordinary amount of work on the project.” The county argued the specifications accurately represented the conditions and the commissioners would not approve the change order. That’s when the lawsuit was filed. Spinney said the county had been busy preparing for trial, which was set to be held the second week of December. Clermont County

Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Mary Lynne Birck recently traveled to New York to meet with the opposition’s expert witness and San Francisco to meet with the county’s expert witness. Those trips combined were not to exceed $2,624.51. If the case had gone to court, the county could have had to pay the $658,000 plus prejudgement interest, totaling more than $1 million, Birck said. The county also could have had to pay court fees and fees for their expert witness. However, because the suit has been settled, the case will no longer go to court. “This is not an admission of liability or any sort of wrong doing on the part of the sewer district,” Birck said.

Boys also came to Loveland from Sycamore. Sears also was superintendent of the Lebanon City School District – experience Loveland school officials have said they are looking for in a superintendent to succeed Boys. “I have always had a passion for improving the learning for all kids,” Sears said. “When I was first asked to consider the position of interim superintendent at Loveland, that passion ignited into excitement for a great opportunity to work with the students, staff and community as they continue their travels on the road of academic success. “Kevin Boys is an outstanding leader and I feel fortunate to be asked to pick up and support the excellent work that he had been doing in the Loveland City Schools,” Sears said. “I look forward to meeting and working with the staff and community on a daily basis.” Loveland Board of Education President Kathryn Lorenz said it was important to quickly get an interim superintendent on board with the experience to lead the district through this transition. “Now that the naming of an interim superintendent is behind us, it will allow the board to focus on finding a full-time superintendent,” Lorenz said. “The board plans to discuss this process after the first of the year.” The board has contracted with Effron & Associates of Madeira to help in the search for Boys’ successor. Boys has been Loveland superintendent for eight years. Before that he was a teacher, elementary school principal, junior high school principal and assistant superintendent with the Sycamore Community Schools. cincinnati.com/community

Loveland JV boys fall to Mason The following basketball summaries were submitted.

Boys’ JV basketball

Mason 44, Loveland 21 – Loveland JV Tigers played host to Mason Dec. 29, losing 44-21. The Tigers again faced a much taller front line with Mason going 6’6”, 6’5”, 6’2” inside. The Tigers also compounded their woes, coming back from their 10-day Christmas layoff, with a cold shooting touch. The game began as a defensive struggle in the first quarter with little scoring by either team and Mason taking a modest 7-5 lead. As the game progressed through the second and third periods the Comets front line and the Tigers cold shooting took their toll in the outcome as Loveland was only able to hit three baskets and Mason extended their lead to 34-11. In spite of the deficit the Tigers continued to play hard, as they have all season.

Loveland was led in scoring by Jeremy Sears with eight, Jarron Talbot scored four, Austin Stahl had three and Bryce Plitt, Ryne Terry and Jon Trelor had two a piece. With the loss Loveland falls 0-5 on the season.

Meijers was unseeded going into the coaches’ classic but ended up winning the tournament in his weight class. Harger also won, along with senior Drew Hammer at 130 lbs. Gaier said his top performers are wrestling very well but that he wasn’t sure what to expect from his freshmen. “We have four freshmen in the lineup and with our tough schedule they are thrown to the wolves but have improved quite a bit and have done well. I think we’ll be all right,” Gaier said. Another key factor for the Crusaders early in the season has been the absence of senior standout Jake Corrill. Corrill is expected to be a state contender

after finishing third in the state tournament as a junior. He’s been out with an injury and is being held out of action until January as a precaution. “He makes a huge difference,” Gaier said. “He’s one of the top two kids on the team and he’s one of our leaders. His style helps motivate everyone else so not having him in the lineup hurts, but we’ll get him back and once we do, it will make us a better team.” Junior Brian MacVeigh has filled in for Corrill at the 125 lbs. weight class and has done well, according to Gaier. “He’s one that just seems to get better each week, I’ve been very impressed with him,” he said.

toughest tournaments in the country. “It’s similar to the Ironman but maybe not quite that tough overall,” Gaier said. “It’s still a very tough tournament with some good teams. It will be a good test for our guys.”

The Moeller High School wrestling team has faced some stiff competition early in the season and has given head coach Jeff Gaier a sense of where his team stands with other area competition. The team wrestled in one of the toughest tournaments in the country, the Ironman tournament, and followed that up with an appearance in the Southwest Ohio Wrestling Coaches Association Glenn Sample Classic Tournament, which was Dec. 19-20 at Harrison High School. The Crusaders finished third behind Elder and Mason. “We know we have some improvement to do

and I think it will help motivate us to get better,” Gaier said. “We will see Elder again in a dual meet and in the league tournament and it will help motivate us to get a little better, which we need to do.” Moeller finished No. 15 out of 63 teams at the Ironman tournament, which is quite an accomplishment, given the Crusaders’ youth. Moeller had two placers in that tournament. Senior Pierce Harger placed in the 160 lbs. weight class and freshman Stefan Meijers placed fourth at 112. “To place as a freshman, in that tournament, is quite an accomplishment,” Gaier said. “He’s a pretty special kid but to do that well in only his second event in high school is quite a feat.”

VOICES FROM THE WEB

Party affiliations Visitors to Cincinnati.com/ Symmestownship posted these comments to a story about former Symmes Township resident Jack Greenberg stipulating in his will that a trust pay for a special birthday annually for 20 years or until the $1.5 million runs out. The party includes: lunch and limousine service for 37 friends and their guests, a nice speech about himself, group photographs, and gifts of $1,500 for each invitee: “What a way to go! More power to him. If I had the money, I’d do the same thing!” ter61 “He would have enjoyed it more if he had done it when he was alive.” skylight “I want to be this guy’s friend!!”

“Not mentioned in the article is that Jack Greenberg was a strong Republican and shared his conservative views with people when asked about politicial opinions. You sure wouldn’t find a liberal in this world who would be anywhere near as generous as Mr. Greenberg.” KWVeteran “Good thing for Greenberg to give to his pals $ every year, but he could have helped poor people ... and other organizations beside his own race! To do so proves one is a true Christian!” Bugaboo2 “This is so true, a liberal actually understands the meaning of the expression ‘let not the right hand know what the left is doing.’ You hear about the Republicans because they’re like the rich man in the temple who ‘devour widows’

houses, and for show make lengthy prayers.’ LanceGose “Yes, Jack Greenberg was a very good conservative Republican and a generous person. However, I do not confuse one’s political views with their tendancies towards generosity, humility or kindness. Jack Greenberg was all of those, but I cannot say that either party has a corner on those markets. Good people come from all persuasions, races and political views. I would resent any other opinion, as would he, as it would be bigoted and unjust. “Great article, though. Great man.” Bearcats83 “Did anyone notice that the sun is shining brightly today?? Maybe Mr. Greenberg is smiling down upon us. What a great story!!” CoastalFun “Replying to Bugaboo2: “What part of ‘In addition to bequeathing millions to Jewish charities” did you not understand? By the way, other than lip-service ... how many millions have you personally given to the poor? “Exactly!” govtsux

The bills come due Visitors to Cincinnati.com/ hamiltoncounty posted these comments to a story about how local municipalities and governments are cutting their budgets because of the economy: ‘Well, of course the ‘public servants’ make the cuts in the way that will be most visibly painful for the taxpayers. That’ll show ‘em for not paying enough in taxes to support our government. “But the plain fact is that there has been too much spending in good times, because political folks feel continuing pressure to spend what they have – and

CH@TROOM Dec. 30 questions

Loveland Council Member Mark Fitzgerald was recently hired as North College Hill’s new city administrator. Do you have any concerns about Fitzgerald taking that job? Why or why not? No responses. What advice would you give to new Cincinnati Archbishop Dennis Schnurr? What do you think should be his top priority? What is his greatest challenge? No responses.

Next question New Hope Baptist Church is celebrating 15 years in Loveland. How has the church benefitted the community? Do you think requiring passengers to go through a body scanner, which produces an image of one’s naked body, at airports would help increase security?

more, rather than to conserve. I suggest a review of every program that did not exist 25 years ago to determine if it was/is really necessary to continue them at present levels, or kill them entirely. We have to distinguish between what’s necessary and ‘what would be nice to have,’ and make cuts accordingly.” NOTaMajorMarket “Budget cuts bring layoffs, except for the Cincinnati Police Department, they get ‘overtime.’ This has to stop asap. No reason for this waste of taxpayer money.” skylight “Of course, if it were you working overtime, I’m guessing, you’d want to get paid for it.” MrWhipple “Even in good times there is not enough money to do all of the things necessary to improve the quality of life in any community. Much of the fluff has already been cut. Public employees are being asked to do more to cover shortages of personnel. It’s often cheaper to pay overtime than to hire or recall employees. “I recall that the Enquirer posted the city expenditures by department. I wonder how many reviewed those with suggestions for cuts. I’m sure that community leaders would welcome NOTaMajorMarket’s review of unnecessary programs. A good start would be one of the communities cited in this article.” CincyTom “Why no mention of Cincinnati $51 million dollar deficit? City streets have been in disrepair for years! “Garbage pick up is spotty, and winter salting of streets is minimal! Problem isn’t the bad economy! The problem is all departments’ overhiring of city employees, police, firemen thru nepotism, poltical paybacks and past/present city councils doing nothing to cut the deficit! They just announced no layoffs in 2010, and will borrow $27 million! They caved in to the

FOP/Firemen’s strong arm unions, (police get a 2 percent raise Jan.1), which adds to the deficit). Next year by their coward actions, taxpayers will be forced to pay a tax increase in order to keep the non caring above elitist happy!” Bugaboo2 “You mean you actually cut spending when revenues are down? Has anyone contacted Washington about this approach? As a country we’ve been living beyond our means for decades, and the lesson still hasn’t been learned. We’re all in for a rude awakening when we realize this socialistic utopia the left has promised won’t work here anymore than it has in France, China or Russia.” billvor ‘Billvor, you need to check some facts. For the last decade this country was run by the right and China is doing quite well. FWIW, China is considered a communist state, France is a republic and Russia is a federation. The last time we had a budget surplus was under the ‘leftist-socialist’ Bill Clinton. Go figure.” CincyTom “For once these municipalities must deal with problems that the private sector has dealt with all the time. The solution is simple. Layoffs, pay cuts, benefit cuts and going non-union are possible solutions. But most will chose to discontinue vital services that harm the people in order to extort more money in the form of higher taxes.” FriendlyRider ‘Why is it that Blue Ash was able to secure some of the $1,000,000,000,000.00 ‘stimulus’ to repave parts of Reed Hartman, but we are going to forego getting a couple of roads repaved in Springfield Township? With that much money being spent by the feds there should be a front loader doing work on every street corner.” just2comment

“Problem is that bureaucrats and politicians become comfortable with the status quo. Every program is ‘necessary’ to someone, and officials are reluctant to cut anything, for fear of losing support. It’s easier to whine about being ‘underfunded,’ or to point the finger of blame elsewhere. In many places, voters have yet to elect people who actually would do much to reduce spending. “So the people choose and have chosen the course of inaction, punctuated by ‘emergencies.’ That’s probably best for the politicians, and so it’s likely to continue.” NOTaMajorMarket “I went over the Cincinnati city manager’s budget line by line. I found not only fluff, but plenty of fat, gravy, dessert, frills and glitter. While other cities larger than Cincinnati are cutting out the handouts, city hall fudged a budget to keep the libs happy and in their pockets. The crisis looms closer.” TalkTalk “Yeah, as a result of Clinton, this country is in a mess. Does the palatial housing boom with big SUVs in the driveway ring a bell with you? How about the fuzzy math on mortgages and consumer loans back in Bill’s day, refresh your memory? Pay up time has come and gone. What’s left is a nation barely moving & the politicos in DC pile on more debt. Tax and spend a country’s way out of a fiasco. I guess the thinking is China has more money to put up for financing. Eventually, they’ll be able to buy the U.S. at a fire sale price. And the libs keep blaming Bush & hold Willie harmless.” TalkTalk

Sick penguin harbinger of a healthy future for rest of us A new year is upon us and it is probably safe to say that not many of us are sad to see 2009 draw to a close. We are a nation at war that has serious economic woes, and are facing some critical issues, including healthcare. Despite all of the bleakness, I am optimistic, and it is because of a penguin. Many of you will have read about the penguin at Newport Aquarium that has cancer, and is being treated with the help of donations, including donated rides to and from his treatment clinic in a refrigerated truck.(Newport Aquarium, by the way, is a fine institution, but is for profit.) Why does our sick penguin friend make me optimistic for tomorrow? It’s simple really. You see, I figure if we can come together to help the penguin get over its cancer, surely we can come together to ensure that the most needy in our communities get adequate health care? I know that there must be plenty of people in Northern Kentucky with cancer in desperate need of treatment and financial help, but they did not make the front page of The Enquirer. Not one of them. And yet, I have hope that our penguin friend is a symbol of our caring, deeply, for other living beings, and that we would not deny our fellow

humans the same chance as the penguin. Surely we would not. Our penguin also gives me hope for other reasons. If in these tough ecoBruce Healey nomic times, Community companies can ways to Press guest find squeeze in a free columnist round trip for the penguin in a refrigerated truck to the treatment center, for example, surely things are on the mend. There is hope in this economy because someone cares enough to spend some of the profit on a penguin. There is a profit and so things must be picking up. Someone sees a light at the end of the tunnel. That sick penguin shows me that we are capable of joining hands over something that matters to us. What is my wish for 2010? That we, as a society, join hands to show the world that we are strong; that we are strong enough to care for a penguin, and strong enough to care for our fellow Americans, be they someone poor, someone without healthcare, and especially, our veterans.

I want the same cando attitude that is treating that penguin to pervade every level of American business: let’s do it, get it done, and start now. The details will sort themselves out along the way. This is the attitude that will pull out of this recession. That will make for a very happy 2010. Bruce Healey lives in Blue Ash.

Where is Grandma? 937 seniors enrolled in classes at OLLI “Where are grandma and grandpa?” might just become a familiar refrain. No, they are not in their rocking chair, but actively engaged in a smorgasbord of more than 140 classes offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute for age 50 and older. Grandma might just be tasting wine, planning her next trip, learning about investments or learning about Civil War generals. Grandma and grandpa are taking educationally fun classes through OLLI. What is unique about OLLI is that its members (age 50 and above) take as many classes as desired for a single quarterly membership fee of $80 – not $80 a class, but $80 to pursue the variety offered in more than 100 classes. Whatever grandma and grandpa might want to learn – there is probably a class on that subject. Class categories include specific topics related to history, health. finance, travel, music, art, food and these classes are interactive and fun.

Dr. Dean Moore shows his grandmother’s 100-plus-year-old porcelain platter with a bread and cherry jelly recipe created by his grandmother. The class focused on how our grandparents lived.

PROVIDED

Professor Gerri Henderson’s Appalachian Literature and Music class featured an Appalachian band for entertainment. The band leader describes the history of the dulcimer.

What’s an OLLI?

This 20-year-old program was begun at the University of Cincinnati and originally named the Institute for Learning in Retirement. However, due to the series of grants from the Bernard Osher Foundation (currently totaling $1.25 million) the name was changed to OLLI. The moderators are generally individuals who were highly successful in their respective fields or individuals who just had a passion for a particular subject area such as wine, the civil war, etc ... They teach for the sheer love of teaching – no salary involved. The locations of classes are convenient to most areas; Raymond Walters College, Tangeman Center at UC, Adath Israel in Amberley Vilage, the Sycamore Senior Center, Maple Knoll, JosephBeth Bookstore, National Underground Freedom Center, Spring Grove and Voice of America in West Chester.

The origami class lasted eight weeks. resident had traveled extensively throughout the region from Austrailia, to India and including China. When he and his wife retired they had moved to Williamsburg, Va., for the warm weather, four seasons and an ocean. His passion then became the Civil War and he attended classes and visited many of the historical sites. The desire to spend time with grandkids was the pull that brought him back to Cincinnati. Dempsey now teaches a course on Civil War generals: Thomas, Meade and Sheridan for the Union and Longstreet, Johnston and Hood for the Confederacy. In this class, Dempsey uses an actual video clip of Civil War soldiers that met in the 1930s. His Power Point presentations show the generals, their families, homes, monuments, and Civil War sites that he has visited. You will see the actual topography that at times could be a challenge. He uses his laser pointer to demonstrate the fish hook battle plans of the generals

on maps. Biographical information is presented so that the generals will become more than just names in history books. So many of the generals were actually best friends at West Point and now they were to be on opposite sides. While some generals such as Lee had no demerits and were high in class rank, there were other top generals who not only were at the bottom of the academic rankings at West Point, but lead the way in most number of demerits. Another moderator, David Yockey, was a Milford social studies department head, then school board member for eight years and a member of the Great Oaks Board of Directors. Yockey said, “That at 15 years old I was interested in world studies, so I became involved in amateur radio as a way to interact with people in other countries.” His travel interest became a second career passion. Since retirement, he has traveled to more than 65 countries. His top four

most memorable experiences have been: 1, flying around Mount Everest in a small plane; 2, landing in Kalahari Desert in Botswana; 3, seeing the absolutely gorgeous Taj Mahal, and 4, walking into the sobering gas chambers of Auschwitz. “On each trip I try an experiment such as which is the best way to exchange money or call home,” Yockey said. “I teach from practical real life experience.” His class offers best practices for car rentals, travel insurance. European rail travel, insurance, and best prices. Batavia resident Yves Parnes lived most of her life in New York, where she was a nurse practitioner, published in the field of thanatology, and had worked in the very first HMO in Syracuse, N.Y.. Her Cincinnati move at retirement was to be closer to her airline pilot son. Since her involvement in OLLI she has a group of new friends and is a teacher moderator also. Parnes loves to cook and her recipes have been published in Gourmet and McCall’s magazines. Her class, Culinary Capers, emphasizes recipes with a theme such as Christmas morning breakfast, tree trimming party, holiday foods, barbeque, etc ... The class divides the menu and each participant returns with enough for a fun tasting. Classes are fun, very social and informal. There are always special guests to welcome such as Richard Flannigan of Trader Joes,

who speaks and provides samples to the class. There is a saying that happiness comes from turning a beloved hobby into your profession and Montgomery resident Mary Fruewald has accomplished that fete. Fruewald’s husband’s job as a sales representative for a wine distributor just encouraged that growth. Fruewald joined the American Wine Society and attended conferences for the last eight years. She took three years to complete her training as a wine taster and is now a certified wine judge of the American Wine Society. Participants in her class will learn the varieties of wines such as Caberet, Merlot and Chardonnay. They will gain basic knowledge of how to handle, pour and store wine. Since she was trained in wine tasting, she will demonstrate methods to taste wines. Moderator Arnold Morelli of Mariemont said, “I knew I wanted to be an attorney from the age of 14. I admired Abraham Lincoln, such a humble great man who had very little formal education.” Morelli, son of Italian immigrants, graduated from Harvard Law School. Morelli’s passion was Constitutional Law during his 40year law career. He had worked at the Cincinnati branch of the U.S. Attorneys Office of the Department of Justice and taught law at the Chase College of Law. Morelli teaches a course on his passion, the Constitution, and brings in his other two academic passions of science and history. The class studies the constitution and hears many interesting stories about the history of our nation. Milford resident Kirtland Hobler, a retired surgeon general, who moved to Cincinnati six years ago has taken OLLI classes as well as taught a class concerning “The Evolution of Life on Earth.” Hobler had been teaching medical students in Raleigh, N.C.. Hobler quickly became involved in

Cincinnati activities. He and his wife are members of the Indian Hill Church, and Joanna, a retired social worker, has trained to become a docent at the Cincinnati Art Museum. “Once I discovered OLLI I took as many classes as I could,” Hobler said.

The Wednesday Wows

For those seniors who just want a one-day specialized class, those are most often held at the Sycamore Senior Center. The Cincinnati Museum Center offered a program concerning the digs that happened in the old downtown Cincinnati privies The digs provided much historical insight. There were dishes, animal bones, and historical police uniforms that were found. Research provided the names of the residents at the time and their stories came to life. If a home was bought the deed often stated whether you owned a privy or one had to be shared with neighbors – not the most pleasant thought.

Cookiesamplingasuccess

Participants support OLLI as evidenced by attendance and most recently the cookie brigade during the first week of class. Curriculum chair Jim Goyette sent out an e-mail asking OLLI members for cookies for the hospitality table. OLLI participants provided 1,700 cookies, cupcakes and treats. There are various luncheons throughout the year that provide fun, good food and fellowship.

down. They’d cry, become angry or self-deprecating, and promise to start “next week,” anything but resolve to get up now. They conned themselves and others into thinking they were really making a serious resolution. But inside they just wanted to be let alone so they could stay where they were. Serious resolutions spring from honesty, humility and commitment to a goal. Olympic gold medal winners have a compelling goal in mind long before they have the medal draped around their neck. Fulfilled spouses have a commitment to the goal of a loving relationship long before they celebrate a 50th anniversary. Dieters need to be drawn by a healthy image of themselves standing at the goal-line of selfimprovement.

Making and remaining faithful to good resolutions also has psychological and spiritual advantages. It encourages our inner development, and leads us to a deeper respect for ourselves. We see we have willpower, a sense of discipline, and a commitment to our own good. We realize our life is not as out of control as we first thought, and that we have many options in the ways we move ahead as a person. We feel proud of ourselves when we make and keep resolutions. Ruts are the opposite of resolutions. Remaining in ruts of unhealthy behavior introduces us to mediocrity. We feel so familiar with the thoughts, habits and defenses we’ve formed – even though some of our habits are unhealthy – that we prefer their comfortable security to new growth.

Leaving ruts requires humility to recognize the state into which we gotten ourselves, a willingness to change, and perseverance to figure and find the way out. Poet W.H. Auden writes of the human comfort level found in sameness, and the resistance to growth: We would rather be ruined than changed. We would rather die in our dread Than climb the cross of the present And let our illusions die. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Beware of free trial offers that require S&H fee I’ve repeatedly warned about Web sites that offer free trial offers for just a small shipping and handling fee. Too often, hidden in small print at the bottom of the page it says you will automatically be enrolled in the company’s program unless you cancel within 10 days – and you’ll be charged a high monthly fee for the service. Now the Better Business Bureau, Federal Trade Commission and Visa are also warning about this. The FTC stated, “Free trial marketing can be con-

Howard Ain Legitimate marketers Hey Howard! don’t hide critical information about costs or cancellation policies to get their customers to agree to future changes.” The FTC said some companies even make cancellations or returns difficult for those who do read the fine

print. It noted many of these firms use e-mail or Webbased promotions. Wanda Wade of Southgate was looking for work on the Internet and responded to an ad she saw on a news Web site. She said she thought it looked legitimate. “You were supposed to receive a kit for just paying $1.97 for shipping and handling,” Wade said. That was in early December and as soon as she signed up, giving her personal information and bank debit card number, she received a phone call that made her very leery of the

company. “They called me and immediately tried … to get me to sign up for additional things.” Wade immediately cancelled with the company and so was shocked when, just days later, unauthorized charges starting showing up on her bank statement. The first was for $1.94, but the second was for more than $77 and that caused her bank account to be overdrawn. “They had no right to do that and I have called and

contacted the company. I’ve spoken with eight or nine different people – a lot of foreign people that I can’t understand,” Wade said. “I canceled my card. I have to keep the checking account open. It overdrew my account and I’ve been charged three overdraft fees,” Wade said. I told her to go in person to her bank to file written unauthorized withdrawal statements. She did and now has received all the money back, including the overdraft fees.

Wade said she will now be more wary of these free trial offers and will never put her debit card number on the Internet. “Definitely don’t use a debit card. A credit card is bad enough, but a debit card is worse,” she said.

Coat drive exceeds goal The Society of St. Vincent de Paul and WLWT Channel 5 collected 5,124 new and gently used coats during the ninth annual 5 Cares Coat Drive between Oct. 19 and Dec. 4 with the help of partners Gold Star Chili, City Dash, local fire departments and Starr Printing Services, Inc. This year’s total collection surpassed the goal by more than 25 percent. St. Vincent de Paul supplies coats to its own clients, as well as to other agencies that also work directly with those in need. “Thanks to the generous

community support and our corporate partners, we are able to provide coats, to help our neighbors and their children stay warm this winter,” said Liz Carter, executive director of St. Vincent de Paul. “There was this little girl at one of the coat distributions, with the most infectious smile and giggle. She found a shiny purple coat with fur on the collar. When I complimented her, she said she loved it because her mom’s coat is shiny and purple,” she said.

“How blessed we are that we were able to make that happen for her, and other children like her,” said

Carter. This project is made possible by the firefighters and volunteers who collect the coats, transport, sort and distribute the coats, and the generosity of area residents.

‘Queen of Housewares’ talks cookware

I laugh at a title jokingly given to me by customers at Macy’s – “The Queen of Housewares.” I not only demonstrate everything we sell but I also do the training for the region for our employees. That means I get to test all kinds of fun cookware, electrics, cutlery and gadgets. What that also means is I’m a huge advocate for good quality cookware and cutlery. Every year right after the holidays, I’m deluged with questions about cookware and knives. Checking with my other writer colleagues, I’ve found that these two subjects are ones that their readers have lots of inquiries about, too. I suppose it’s because they’re among the best selling houseware gifts and there’s such a huge variety available that it can be really confusing as to what’s good, what’s not, etc. So today I’m going to

address cookware. In a future column, I’ll talk about cutlery.

Rita Material It can

Heikenfeld Rita’s kitchen

be stainless steel, a l u minum, anodized aluminum, copper with a tinned or stainless inside surface, cast iron, cast iron with enameled inside, and nonstick, to name just a few.

Clad stainless steel

On its own, stainless is a poor conductor of heat. That’s why you should always buy a stainless pan with some copper or aluminum in it. The best cookware is “clad” which means it has an aluminum or copper core that is sandwiched, or clad,

between stainless steel. It’s usually called triple-ply. There are two kinds of clad: fully clad like what I just described where the sandwiched core extends from the bottom of the pan all the way up the sides (creating three layers) or bottom clad which have a disk of aluminum or copper, or both, on the bottom only. Both perform well but the fully clad is my choice and the highest quality. You can use metal utensils in these pans.

Aluminum

Look for anodized aluminum which means the pan has been put through a process that changes the aluminum structure to be non-reactive to foods, just like stainless and you can use metal utensils. You get great browning with this cookware.

Copper

The best conductor of

heat but expensive and needs maintaining to look good. You also get great browning.

Cast iron

I call this the original nonstick. I use mine every day. The downside is it’s heavy and needs to be seasoned and dried right away after washing. The perk is you get a boost of iron every time you cook with it. Some cast iron pieces, like Le Creuset, have an enameled cooking surface which gives you the benefit of cast iron without the work. Another line of cookware that gives great browning.

Nonstick

A lot of debate about this being a safe cooking surface. Bottom line is that you can still use your nonstick pans as long as they’re not chipped or peeling. The surface is safe with normal use. For complete informa-

tion, log onto www.goodhousekeeping.com about nonstick or check out my video showing all kinds of cookware at www.abouteating.com.

What about browning in nonstick?

Nonstick does not brown as well, for the most part, as regular pans, though there are nonstick pans that offer decent browning. Nonstick is wonderful for eggs, waffles, cheese sandwiches, low fat cooking, sauces, etc. You need no oil in the pan except for flavor, and clean up is a breeze. Unless otherwise stated, use plastic or wooden utensils. Most nonstick is not dishwasher safe, though there are some that can be put in the dishwasher.

To spray or not to spray

I don’t recommend using a pressure type spray, like Pam, on cookware. The

pump units you fill yourself are fine, as is an oiled paper towel. What happens is the Pam-type cooking spray may sometimes bond to the bottom of a pan, creating a yellowish surface that is impossible to wash off. It won’t hurt the pan, but it may disqualify the warranty and may also compromise the nonstick surface.

I want your feedback!

What’s your favorite cookware, and why? Is it an heirloom pan, or a brandspanking new pot that you just had to have?

SOUTH CAROLINA

RAVENWOOD CASTLE: A MOST UNUSUAL GETAWAY Visit a “medieval castle” on a high hilltop on 115 secluded and forested acres of the most beautiful area of Southeast Ohiothe Hocking Hills! Owners Sue & Jim Maxwell are creating the most unusual guest experience of stepping back 800 years in a reconstruction of a “12th century Norman castle.” The Maxwells have traveled throughout England & Scotland & have always loved castles & the medieval era. Although the building is new, the couple has been collecting architectural antiques for several years. Each guest room or suite has a stained glass window, usually in the bedroom, a Victorian fireplace mantel with a gas log unit, antique light fixtures and some have beautiful old doors. The wood mouldings around the door & windows & the 5 stairways are inspired by centuries old motifs from Great Britain’s stately homes & castles. Most rooms also have a French door with a balcony, private deck overlooking the forest. There are also “medieval” themed cottages with fireplaces and whirlpools. Ravenwood has

NORTH CAROLINA

its own food service for guests, so they can spend their entire visit immersed in solitude if they wish, surrounded by tall trees, huge rocks, the castle‘s own hiking trails and plenty of peace and quiet. Or guests can drive the few miles to outside attractions & other dramatic scenery in the Hocking Hills. Ravenwood offers popular “murder mystery” weekends and also plans “medieval dinners”, getaway workshops, and other special events. Facilities are also perfect for small weddings and other festive occasions. The building has no steps into the 1st floor level - a “drawbridge” leads from the driveway to the massive front door and the first floor guest rms. Nearby are caves, waterfalls, lots of hiking trails, a scenic railway, arts & crafts studios & shop, antique malls and much more. There are often midweek discounts and a special “Royal Family” Adventure Package in the summer.
