Loveland Fire/EMS levy approved by 71 percent By Marika Lee mlee1@communitypress.com

Loveland’s first fire and EMS levy in eight years was approved by voters on May 6. The 1.75-mill levy passed with 71 percent, or 1,768 votes, for it and 28 percent, or 700 votes, against it, according to the unofficial results from the Hamilton, Clermont and Warren County boards of elections. In Hamilton County, 71 percent voted for its and 28 percent voted against it. In Clermont County, 70 percent voted for its and 30 percent voted against it. In Warren County, 70 percent voted for it and 30 percent voted against it. The 1.75-mill Loveland Fire

and EMS levy carries a $61.25 increase in property tax for each $100,000 of home valuation. Residents currently pay $242.60 per $100,000 of home

market value and the cost will increase to $303.85 with the new levy. See LEVY, Page A2

Loveland Schools levy is approved By Marika Lee mlee1@communtiypress.com

Loveland City Schools will be able to improve its services after its levy was approved May 6. The 5.6-mill Loveland Schools Levy passed with 59 percent, or 3,633 votes, for it and 41 percent, or 2,489 votes against it, according to the unofficial results from the Hamilton, Clermont and Warren County Board of Elections. In Hamilton County, 55 percent voted for its and 44 percent voted against it. In Clermont County, 67 percent voted for its and 36 percent voted against it. In Warren County, 49 percent voted for it and 51 percent voted against it. The 5.6-mill levy will cost taxpayers $196 for each $100,000 of home value. The $196 will go down to $148 in 2016 because of retirement of school district bonds. “To me, the passage of the levy is an acknowledgment of the confidence the community

has in their schools and the value they put on education. We appreciate the support our community has shown us,” Superintendent Chad Hilliker said in a statement. The levy will generate $4.2 million annually for the district. Loveland City Schools Treasurer Brett Griffith said the levy will last the district four years, but his goal is to stretch it to five. If the levy had failed the district would have needed to cut $1 million from its budget for the 2014-2015 school year. Funds from the levy will go to increasing science, technology, engineering and mathematics programs and improving counseling and reading services. Citizens for Loveland Schools has been meeting on a weekly basis for more than a month. The committee placed more than 1,000 yard signs throughout Loveland and held See SCHOOLS , Page A2

Loveland Police Division takes part in ‘Click It or Ticket’ program Community Press

The Loveland Police Division continues its partnership with the Ohio Department of Public Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to reduce injuries in crashes NHTSA lists seat belts as the single most effective piece of safety equipment in a vehicle, yet observational studies show that nearly one out of five Amer-

icans still fails to wear a seat belt while travelling in a motor vehicle. The national and state 2014 Click It or Ticket campaign will encourage every driver and passenger to buckle up. The mobilization period will be from May 19 through June 1. To help the campaign, law enforcement agencies across Ohio will increase seat belt enforcement during the mobilization period. While this year’s Click It or

Ticket enforcement mobilization runs through June 1, officers will continue enforcing the law year round when violators are discovered not wearing their seat belt According to NHTSA, in 2012 seat belts saved an estimated 12,174 people from dying. From 2008 – 2012 seat belts saved nearly 63,000 lives. Also in 2012, 3,031 additional lives could have been saved if all unrestrained passenger vehicle occupants 5

the Citizens for Loveland Schools, who diligently presented the importance of this levy to voters. Every school district should have a levy committee that is as hard working and dedicated as ours,” Hilliker said. Al Osgood Jr., co-chair of Citizens for Loveland Schools, said, in an email he is pleased to live in a town that supports its schools as much as Loveland does. “It was an absolute privilege to work with such a dedicated group of campaign volunteers, and to them, a huge thank you for everyone’s efforts in making (the election) a success,” he said. Committee member Beth Wexler was among the people campaigning

outside Loveland Early Childhood Center. She and many campaigners agreed there had been a steady flow of people throughout the day and about 500 by 5 p.m. Chris Lohrman, who was campaigning outside the Loveland Safety Center, said the numbers there were not as high, but fewer precincts use the Safety Center as a polling location. Members of Citizens for Loveland Schools said they saw only two signs against the levy. Hilliker said there was no organized opposition group.

Levy

Department had stationed an officer to help people cross the street from the Prince of Peace parking lot. The levy will be used to continue fire and EMS services and replace fire equipment. The last fire levy, which passed in 2006, was expected to last five years, but Loveland Finance Director Tom Vanderhorst was able to stretch it to eight years. The new levy should last eight years, but Vanderhorst said he will be looking to stretch this one also.

St. Columban fourth-graders turning lemonade into water for Ethiopia By Chuck Gibson loveland@communitypress.com

T

he St. Columban fourth-grade class of Beth Judd combined lessons from reading, religion and science to help fund a solar well to provide fresh water to people in Ethiopia. “We’re raising money for PowerUp Ethiopia,” said Madelyn Butera, fourth-grade lemonade stand volunteer. “They’re building solar power wells in Ethiopia for people who don’t have fresh water.” They’re setting up a lemonade stand in the parking lot from 3 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. after school every Tuesday and Friday throughout April and May to sell lemonade. Not just lemonade, but frozen popsicles too. Amelia Francis-

co said they’re doing it to help others in need. “For the other people who don’t have fresh water,” she said; “to give them fresh water to drink and keep them from getting sick from dirty water.” All the money from their lemonade stand sales will help build a solar well in Harar, Ethiopia as part of a project called PowerUp Ethiopia. “They’ve been looking forward to doing it all week,” Judd said. Several different students staff the lemonade stand each day. At the end of the second week, their enthusiasm was undeniable. “They were jumping out of their skin with excitement.” First the students in Judd’s fourth-grade class

read a story about a brother and sister who sold lemonade to solve an argument between them. Student Jolie Brausch said, in the book “Lemonade War,” the two siblings decided whoever sells the most lemonade wins “It’s winner take all and loser gets nothing,” Brausch said. There’s no war going on with their lemonade stand, but she knows who wins. “Probably the people in PowerUp Ethiopia; the people they are doing it for.” Science and math teacher Eileen Phelps has been teaching them about clean water. In religion class they’re learning about helping others outside their own community. They had a Skype session with Danny Sexton, founder of Concordia Humana

which started the PowerUp Ethiopia project. He’s from Loveland and St. Columban. “We ‘Skyped’ with Danny and he showed us pictures of how destitute and awful the conditions are for these people,” Judd said. Imagine walking two miles to get access to water you have to carry home and boil before it is safe to use. Sexton’s mother, Kathy Sexton, also teaches at St. Columban and shared the difference between telling the kids about it versus them seeing the pictures. “You can talk about how the kids have to walk a couple miles to get water,” Sexton said, “but when they saw pictures – this was desolate rutted roads with nothing but a blazing sun. He showed them their

class room and they were appalled at the conditions they saw.” That was enough to inspire the St. Columban kids to start a lemonade stand to help. On Friday of their second week, they had lots of customers; they made $67 before turning away customers when they ran out of lemonade. A rapstyle announcement done by students Robby Stineman, Garret Schenk, and Jeremy Huiet may have been responsible drawing the large crowd. “This is the best response we’ve had so far,” Judd said. “I think it was the announcements. These boys just did a rap on the announcements to promote it.” Seamus Taylor liked the idea of helping. “I think it’s a good idea

and I might do it the rest of the summer,” Taylor said. He’s not the only one. Sam Cline and Drew Geier are taking it to the streets at home with a stand of their own. “Me and Andrew made a lemonade stand on our street for PowerUp Ethiopia,” Cline said. “We’re selling Kool-Aid and we’re gonna start selling brownies soon.” Ella Schaltz and Frankie Haas earned $130 selling lemonade on their street April 12. Lessons learned from reading, religion and science have gone straight to the heart of Beth Judd’s fourth-grade class. “I want to help the poor because they have less than us, and we have clean water and they don’t,” Jenna Van Schaik said.

Professor Gizmo, ‘Fun & Science Show’ captivate young scientists

H

e is not your typical Loveland Primary School science teacher, but students gave him full attention all the same. “Professor Gizmo and the Fun & Science Show” hosted an interactive assembly to celebrate LPS Science Day – a Loveland Elementary PTA-sponsored treat for the children. “This is a creative exercise in science study,” Principal Kevin Fancher said. “After the assembly, students spent the rest of the day with LPS teachers presenting hands-on science activities. We studied re-

fraction, static electricity, friction and Newton’s First Law of Motion, buoyancy, and chemistry – which included a very popular ‘make your own soda’ session.” “Professor Gizmo and the Fun & Science Show” was part of the annual Science Day event at LPS. Topics change each year as does the assembly/show. “The shows rotate each year, and are a fantastic way to kick off Science Day,” Fancher said. “We really appreciate the PTA support to keep this interactive style of science instruction at LPS.”

LOVELAND — Much of the season, if you were late for a Loveland High School girls lacrosse game, you likely missed substantial action. With a running clock and lightning-quick offense, the Lady Tigers coached by Rick Jones have often been on the smiling side of some lopsided games. “We’ve had two really close ones and maybe three or four where the score was wider than the game really was,” Jones said. “We sort of lay it on people at the end.” At presstime, Loveland had scored in double figures in every game. In a little over a month, they beat Seven Hills by12, Milford by11, Springboro by10, Lakota West by11, Lakota East by 18, Walnut Hills by 13, Centerville by 12, Lebanon by 12 and Kings by 12. First team all-district middie Hannah Bellamah is typically around the net for Loveland tormenting Tristate goaltenders. “She’s probably averaged seven goals per game,” Jones said. “She could easily play in college.” Juniors Savannah Lee and Taylor Wilhoite are also tenacious in the midfield along with freshman Katie McElveen who’s been described as the “future superstar” of Loveland lacrosse.

“She’s doing great and is a really strong middie,” Jones said. “She’s super on the draws. She’s as good of a draw person as I’ve seen.” In goal is senior Rachel Heath, who will go on to play at the University of Findlay. Offensively and defensively, Bellamah and Heath have guided the program from a 2-14 mark as freshmen to this season’s superlative effort. “We’re pretty solid all the way through the lineup,” Jones said. “The youth program’s really built up over the last couple of years, but a lot of it is the hard work of the senior class. They’re seeing all the work come to fruition here with a really solid season.” Jones stands a good chance to surpass last year’s 15-win total, but shrugs off the success as many athletes at 1 Tiger Trail have excelled. “In Loveland, they all do good,” Jones said laughing. In his second year since coming from Kings as an assistant, Jones has the Lady Tigers poised to keep playing in May. Their Ohio Schoolgirls Lacrosse Association tournament opener will be against the winner of New Albany/Marysville on May 14 in the South/Central Division I district. A win there could set up a rematch with Mount Notre Dame on May 19 should the Cougars advance. Loveland celebrated their first program win over MND 10-9 back on April 26.

I chose Capital because as an emerging program, it gives me a unique opportunity to contribute my first year. What drew me to the school was the location and coaching staff - I think I’ll fit in well at Capital.” Rounding out his senior season, Collier reflected on his lacrosse career with the Tigers. “I’m grateful for being able to play at Loveland and can’t imagine playing anywhere else,” Collier said. “I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to play alongside all of my teammates and I’ve gotten really close to them over the years.

Flying Pig women’s champ overcame obstacles to win By Mark D. Motz mmotz@communitypress.com

MONTGOMERY — She runs for a reason. Several, actually. Amy Robillard won the 2014 Flying Pig Marathon May 3, her first time entering the 26.2-mile race after winning the half marathon in 2011 and 2012. “I still can’t believe it,” Robillard said the day after the marathon. “It was a amazing, just amazing.” That Robillard - an assistant cross country coach at Ursuline Academy - ran at all is something of a miracle after she broke her leg in December. UA cross country head coach Rachel Bea - who won the Flying Pig in 2012 as Robillard was winning the half marathon - said it was a great day for the Lions. “I finished the half marathon and went back out on the course to find her near the end,” she said. “I was jumping up and down

screaming (at the finish line). She just has that kind of inner strength. If she gets her mind set to do something, she gets it done and delivers. “There were a couple of girls out on the course who were cheering for her. I think it’s really good for our girls to see we’re not just talking the talk. We’re walking the walk. The girls know Amy is a tough coach with tough love. If anything it shows them how they can overcome anything.” Robillard had more than a broken leg as an obstacle the last few years. Her then-infant son Jameson - nurses at Children’s Hospital nicknamed him Jamo - needed a bone marrow transplant. Amy and her husband spent the better part of a year in isolation with him as he got the transplant and recovered. “When you live in a transplant unit, you’re really isolated,” Robillard said. “(Running) was my

therapy. I needed that release. I was mentally drained and I need to recharge. I was power-walking through the hospital at 2 a.m.. The security people and others let me know good places to run. They understood it was a big help.” Jamo, now healthy at age 4, still has to go in for weekly lab work to make sure he’s OK. Amy gives him a Matchbook car after every visit for his bravery in the face of countless needless. He gives her the strength to excel. “I have no reason to complain,” she said. “I have pulled so much strength from him and from what I saw other families going through. Running a marathon hurts, yes. If you’re running a 2:30 marathon or a 4:30 marathon, there’s go-

Loveland lacrosse wins for 50th time The Loveland High School boys lacrosse program marked a milestone recently with their 13-7 win over local lacrosse power Indian Hill, chalking up their 50th victory since becoming a Division I team in Ohio boys lacrosse. The 7-2 Tigers took a few minutes post-game to recognize two former coaches, Mike Werner (2006-09) and Mark Lynch (2010-2013), who were instrumental in building Loveland High School boys lacrosse into one of the top Division I programs in Ohio. Tiger captains Max Mather, Brian McElveen and Tanner Griffin posed mid-field with current head coach Mike Pritz and his staff, along with the former Tiger head coach after the game. “It’s amazing how far the program has come in just a few short years,” Werner said. “We went from club level to playing in the Division II state championship in our first five years. And the leap

turnovers and 40 groundballs. Newbold also scored a career-high four goals and had an assist this season as well. Newbold was an All-American selection as a senior while at Loveland High, and also lettered in football. Newbold helped guide the Loveland Tigers to Division II Lacrosse State Championship game in 2008. » Moeller held off Elder 9-8 on May 7 as Brendan King had three goals. » CCD lost 17-9 to Wilmington May 6, dropping to 1-9 on the season. » CHCA lost 15-13 against Miami Valley School May 2 to fall to 3-9 on the season.

ing to be some pain, but this is nothing. Those kids at Children’s didn’t choose what they’re going through “I choose to do this. I enjoy doing this. You have to have a love and a passion for it. I struggled at the end. I fell off my pace by 30 seconds the last couple of miles, but it could have been worse. (Winning a marathon) is just who doesn’t fall apart the most.” Robillard was a swimmer in college at the University of Arizona, but always enjoyed running as part of her dry-land training. When her swimming career ended she said, “I wasn’t ready to be finished competing, so I started running seriously.” Robillard also helps coach the Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy elementary track team where her daughter Addie runs. The 6-year-old posted a 29:09 time in the March 23 Run for the Lions 5K race at Ursuline in memory of Jordan Hoak, a track and cross country runner who was killed in an auto accident last year. “I think I might have a mini-me on my hands,” she said. “She gets upset when she can’t get outside and run.”

Moeller scored eight runs in the third inning to blow open the game, going on to defeat Harrison 17-2 May 8 and claiming the 1,000th win in program history. Senior Zach Logue led the Crusaders, going 4-for-4 with a double, triple and five RBI. Senior Riley Mahan was 2-for-3 with a double and triple. Juniors Jordan Ramey, Eric Conner and seniors Charlie Haunert and Joey Ludwig combined for nine RBI. Sophomore pitcher Nick Bennett allowed just one hit and one earned run, while striking out seven, to pick up the win. Leading 10-2, the Crusaders tacked on seven more runs in the fifth inning to seal the game. Moeller, the two-time reigning Division I state champion, fielded its first baseball team in 1963. The Crusaders now boast a 1,000-395-3 program record. Moeller coach Tim Held, who has been the head coach since 2008, has a 177-30 record.

Moeller, ranked No. 2 in the Enquirer Division I area coaches’ poll, improved to 18-4 this season. Harrison (18-8), ranked No. 8, has struggled as of late dropping six of its last nine games. The OHSAA lists 10 other baseball programs statewide with at least 1,000 wins. On May 7, Moeller was in line for its 1,000th baseball program win with a date against La Salle at Schuler Park. Apparently the Lancers didn’t get the memo as junior Nick Ernst got the win and juniors Anthony Bell and Nigel Williams drove in two runs each to give La Salle the 6-2 win. Moeller sophomore Kyle Butz drove in both runs for the Crusaders. Moeller faced Harrison on May 8 to record the 1,000th in stellar fashion with a 17-2 run-rule of the Wildcats. Sophomore Nick Bennett got the win and struck out eight and senior Zach Logue was 4-4 with a double, triple and five runs batted in.

the program took once we moved up to Division I has been pretty remarkable.” With 30 of the Tigers’ wins as a Division I team coming in the last twoand-a-half seasons, Werner agreed Loveland has benefited recently from being able to attract top local coaches to the program and retain the young talent moving up through their system. “Great practice facilities, great stadium, a new state-of-the art weight room, outstanding boosters, outstanding parents, it makes it easy for the program to pull in excellent coaches like Mark

Lynch when I left, and now Mike Pritz now that Mark has moved on.” Mark Lynch, who moved to Texas to take a full-time high school coaching position at the end of last season, also chimed in from his home base in Dallas. “Congrats to the current Tiger lacrosse players and coaching staff on reaching 50 wins,” said Lynch. “It’s a testament to the hard work and dedication of the players, parents and former coaches like Mike Werner and Joe Fedders who helped develop the program into what it is today.”

A message of thanks right and privilege by casting their ballots May 6 and helping to pass our levy. We hope that you will always take part in our democratic process by voting, assisting in a political campaign, or better yet, running for office. You are our future leaders. During the past several months I have had an opportunity to meet and talk with many in the community regarding the levy. Now that the levy is over, I hope those conversations will continue on a regular basis and please understand that my door is always open, and I welcome the opportunity to talk regarding our great schools and our great community. Thanks to your support we will be able to continue our current programs and operations. We will also be able to provide more support for technology for our teachers and students. This includes classes that will help our students to use technology to research and convey their ideas, as well as providing increased resources and classes for science, engineering, and mathematics. In the younger grades we will be able to provide more reading support and increase counseling services for our students. Together, we will continue to move the district forward. Chad Hilliker is superintendent of the Loveland City School District.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR JEDZ is just another straw on the backs of struggling small business owners

Another reason for businesses in Symmes Township and Milford to pack it in and close up shop. It seems that many people believe that anyone who owns their own business is wealthy. How far from reality that really is. Can we afford another tax? Absolutely not! My small business is known (system statistics) to have an average yearly profit of 5.33 percent. Commodity prices continue to increase. We are on the verge of a minimum wage increase. Is this the place for communities to find ways “to maintain quality of life standards that their citizens have come too expect” on the backs of their struggling business owners and employees who work for them? Figure it out folks, even if our business has sales of $450, 000 per year and does everything perfectly we might squeeze out $24, 000 (before taxes) for the entire year. Many years it’s much less. You might ask why even be in business? We ask ourselves that every day. It seems like a lot of work for nothing. To present this tax to the public as an “alternative to raising property taxes” sounds like extortion to me. This entire plan needs rethinking. Donna Raishart Mason

Mourning the loss of Ambassador John E. Dolibois There are many who mourn the recent passing of former Unites States Ambassador John E. Dolibois and I am one of them. Zachary I had the T. Haines pleasure of COMMUNITY PRESS spending time GUEST COLUMNIST with Ambassador Dolibois during his later years at his home in Cincinnati. We had a few things in common such as our alma mater, Miami University, and our mutual brotherhood in the Alpha Chapter of Beta Theta Pi. For those that are not familiar with John’s legacy, he was a former U.S. Ambassador to his native county of Luxembourg (appointed by President Reagan in 1981) and was the last American survivor of a team that interrogated top-ranking Nazis for the Nuremberg

Trials. He was instrumental in the development of the Miami University Dolibois European Center in Luxembourg, and in 1987, he received the Cross of the Grand Ducal Order of the Crown of Oak, Luxembourg’s highest decoration. John had a very warm spirit. I recall during our last visit he shared his Luxembourg wine, told me about the various paintings that adjourned his living room, all painted by Luxembourg artists, and unveiled handwritten mementos that were sent to him and his beloved wife, Winnie, by various state officials. Time stood still as he told story after story… The one that sticks out most was an incident involving a hidden or secret telephone that in those days was an Ambassador’s direct line to the oval office – John’s telephone was hidden behind a curtain in his office building. He recalled that his wife, Winnie, was cleaning and accidentally bumped the phone

off the cradle. When she picked up to her surprise was President Reagan on the other end, “Winnie... is that you?” As John recounted, President Reagan was very understanding and lighthearted in what was certainly an embarrassing moment for Winnie. Ambassador Dolibois remarked that his life had been a “Pattern of Circles,” returning to the same familiar places and people after a period of absence, and that is where he drew inspiration for the name of his autobiography. John never forgot where he came from or the people and family that helped in along the way. He is loved by his fellow Miami Alumni, Beta Theta Pi brothers, and all else who were impacted by his warm spirit, thoughtful advice and selfless devotion. John E. Dolibois will be missed, but never forgotten. Zachary T. Haines is a resident of Symmes Township.

“There are a few habits of other drivers that bug me: One is tailgating i.e. following too closely behind me when I am going the proper speed. “The other is the lack of using a turn signal. “The final one would be those driving with out insurance.

Ohio DMV needs to be authorized to check for and actually see an insurance card from anyone getting license tags or a driver’s license renewal. Go Figure!” T.D.T.

Great time for asparagus bacon quiche

Leftovers microwave well. The ends of asparagus are tough. After cleaning, snap tough ends off. Use for soup. There’s a natural “break” between the tough and tender parts. 9 or 10 inch pie pan lined with pie dough 8 slices bacon, cut into small pieces 8 ounce or so asparagus, cut on angle in 1 inch or so pieces 4 large eggs, room temperature 2 cups half and half or milk About 1 teaspoon salt and half teaspoon pepper 1 heaping cup shredded cheese or more Preheat oven to 375. Saute bacon and remove. In remaining drippings, sauté asparagus a couple of minutes only, just until it turns bright green. Remove from pan with slotted spoon. Whisk eggs with milk. Add seasonings, cheese, bacon and asparagus. Pour into pie pan. Bake 40-45 minutes until puffed all around. That means it’s done. If you’re not sure, insert a knife an inch from the edge. If it comes out clean, you’re good to go.

If crust browns too much before quiche is done, make a “collar” of foil around the crust.

Asparagus: spears of protection

Asparagus is a powerhouse when it comes to folic acid, necessary for blood cell formation and a healthy liver. Pregnant women especially need to get enough folic acid for healthy babies. Asparagus is also low in sodium, a good source of potassium for healthy hearts and muscles, and a good source of fiber. Oh, and one more thing: it’s low in calories and has zero fat or cholesterol.

Very veggie chili

For the reader who attended one of my presentations and asked for a good vegetarian chili recipe. “I want it to be full of flavor, not wimpy”, she said. I think this recipe will work just fine for her. Thanks to Cindy W., who shared this a while back. I’m glad I keep a file of readers’ recipes!

Tips from Rita’s kitchen:

CE-0000576988

Here we were, wishing for warmer weather and it finally arrived. That means asparagus, Rita and lots of Heikenfeld it. RITA’S KITCHEN Every day I go out to the asparagus patch and harvest a couple of pounds at least. And it’s not a big patch. With all the other spring chores, like tilling and planting and sowing, there isn’t a lot of time to plan for or prepare supper. Luckily, the “girls”/ hens are keeping up with our demand of eggs, so between that and the abundance of asparagus, supper is a no brainer.

“We knew you Yankees would be in a good mood.” That’s the explanation Confederate Lt. Gen. John C. Pemberton gave to Union General Ulysses S. Grant when surrendering his army in Vicksburg, Mississippi, during the Civil War. For two months, the 33,000-man Confederate force repelled a 77,000man Union force while under siege inside the fortress city of Vicksburg. With supplies nearly gone and no reinforcements coming, Pemberton knew it was just a matter of time and the

need to surrender was imminent. Having been born in the North, Pemberton was well aware that northerners would be in a festive mood July 4. The bitterness of combat would take a brief respite for the holiday. Pemberton chose that moment to offer his surrender. The deaths of 8,000 men would end the carnage and Grant would achieve his greatest battlefield victory of the war. On the same date, Confederate Gen. John Hunt Morgan launched his raid into Indiana and Ohio. For the next 24 days Hoosier and Buckeye residents would experience fear and anxiety as reports of Morgan’s Raiders approached their towns. Morgan had a reputation as the Thunderbolt of the Confederacy. His 1,000mile raid route through Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio would be marked with over 1,000 historic monuments and directional signs. In Ohio alone, there are more than 50 wayside signs and 600 directional arrows installed last year on the 150th anniversary of the raid. Civil War author Lester V. Horwitz will compare Grant with Morgan

Family garden kit provides fun, food and education Granny’s Garden School established the Family Garden Project to help area families develop vegetable, flower and herb gardens in their backyards. Families can grow some of their own food for eating, herbs for seasoning and flowers to enjoy and share without spending lots of money. “A garden does not have to take your whole yard or take over your life to draw children and adults out to enjoy the space,” said Roberta “Granny” Paolo, founder and director of Granny’s Garden School. “It is a hands-on activity that, while it may not be likely to appear in Better Homes and Gardens, can become a cherished family activity providing lasting childhood memories.”

Each year, Granny’s Garden School offers 100 garden starter kits, free with a $20 donation. They are great for new and experienced gardeners. This year’s kit includes: » a collection of 25 varieties of vegetable and flower seeds; » a coupon for three (three-inch to four-inch) potted vegetable, herb or flowering plants from Natorp’s Nursery Outlet; » a coupon for one (three-inch to four-inch) herb plant and two "pick your own" lavender bouquets from Jaybird Farms; » seed potatoes and an onion sets. Kits will are available now. To order one or get more information about the Family Garden Project visit www.grannysgardenschool.org.

Make-A-Wish is seeking individuals to participate in its 11th Annual Cincinnati Walk For Wishes Saturday, June 14, at Sawyer Point; registration starts 9 a.m. Spend the day with family and friends for a one- or three-mile scenic walk through Sawyer Point, while helping to grant wishes for children battling life-threatening medical conditions. A Finish Line Celebration filled with music, food and fun will be held at the conclusion of the walk. Walkers will also have the opportunity to meet current and past wish families and experience the magic of a wish come true. Honorary wish kid Brodie and his family will help kickoff Walk For Wishes. Seven-yearold Brodie is battling ALL, a form of leukemia. Brodie had his wish granted to go to Yellowstone National Park to experience the great outdoors. Brodie’s mom, Sarah,

commented on his wish experience, “When he got sick, our world got really small very quickly. But when Make-A-Wish came into the picture, they blew the walls off and reminded us that there are so many things out there to see and do.” There are more than 140 children in southern Ohio like Brodie waiting for their wish to come true. Participants will have the opportunity to help grant these wishes through fundraising for their walk team. To register as an individual or partner up with co-workers, friends and family to enter as a Team visit Ohio.wish.org. Every participant who raises $100 or more will receive an official Walk For Wishes T-shirt. For more information about Walk For Wishes, contact Rebecca Dykstra at ext. 4374 or rebeccad@makeawishohio.org. For more information on Make-A-Wish and ways to help, visit ohio.wish.org or call 1-877-2069474.

UC Blue Ash announces policy for student success The University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College is announcing a new policy that will go into effect for freshman students who enroll for the 2014-15 academic year. It requires that all freshmen earn at least 24 credits before they are allowed to enroll in a class at the University of Cincinnati’s campuses in Clifton or Batavia. The new policy was

created to help support the success of incoming freshman. A small but growing trend has developed as more students are being referred to UC Blue Ash after initially seeking admission to the Clifton campus, but not qualifying academically. Some of these students were still finding a way to take some or all of their classes in Clifton. Their grades often suffered as a result.

Community band gives donation to Moeller The Sycamore Community Band led by Pete Metzger announced its annual donation to the Moeller High Shcool Band Sponsors. The presentation of the check occurred at a joint concert with both the Moeller Band and the Sycamore Community Band March 28. Both bands performed a short

program and then combined to perform a couple of works including music from “The Phantom of the Opera” and Bagley’s “National Emblem March.” The $1,500 donation will go to a fund to help the Band Sponsors buy percussion instruments. Metzger formed the Sycamore Community

Band in 1974 and built the group to a full concert band with 65 active adult musicians. The band plays a variety of music consisting of light classical selections, sounds from the Big Band Era, patriotic music and marches. For more information contact Paul Wallace at 513-697-0868.
