Granny nixes garden move to church

Paolo: Cost would be prohibitive By Jeanne Houck

LOVELAND — Roberta Paolo has given up on an idea to run her Granny’s Garden School from the former Predestinarian Baptist Church on Chestnut Street in Loveland. The decision leaves the vacant collapsing church that a loose coalition of Loveland residents hopes to save for historic reasons with no serious suitors – and less protection from a future wreck-

ing ball. Loveland bought the Predestinarian Baptist Church, a former mainstay for Loveland’s black community, for less than $20,000 in taxes and other liabilities owed last fall after it was foreclosed on and went unsold in two sheriff’s auctions. Assistant Loveland City Manager Gary Vidmar “has toured the property with a few residents who are interested in salvaging the church building for reuse but no firm plan has been identified presently,” Loveland City Manager Tom Carroll said. “One resident, Roberta Paolo (Granny from Granny’s Garden),

who had expressed interest in reuse previously has already communicated to the city that the redevelopment of the church is a bigger project than she is prepared to undertake at this time.” Paolo, executive director of Granny’s Garden School, oversees her flower and vegetable gardens at the Loveland Primary School-Loveland Elementary School campus off Loveland-Madeira Road from an office in her home. She confirmed she has dropped the idea of moving into the Predestinarian Baptist Church. “I felt it would be too expen-

sive to renovate for our purposes,” Paolo said. Said Carroll, “Staff’s position on this church is that unsafe or insanitary conditions will need to be abated, the structure or portions of the structure secured or razed, and if the structure is to be preserved, a plan must be developed for its adaptive reuse in the near future,” Carroll said. Lawyer Paula Oguah, a fourthgeneration black Loveland resident who was baptized and married in the Predestinarian Baptist Church, has been a leader in a push to save the church - which Oguah believes was built in the late 1800s and which has housed

different congregations with different names, including Mt. Calvary Baptist Church. Oguah has said the church is nothing less than “the last monument in Loveland tied to the history of the African-American community, whose members have been extremely viable citizens for years and years.” Carroll said the Predestinarian Baptist Church is in bad shape. “An inspection of the building by Mr. Vidmar and Director of Public Works Scott Wisby found the rear addition to be full of garbage, debris and animal feces and See GARDEN, Page A2

THE LONG AND AMAZING ROAD Committee’s work a year-round effort

By Chuck Gibson

Teams leave the start line to begin the race in 2011. It's a long way from there to the start of the race one year later for organizers of the event. CHUCK GIBSON/FOR THE COMMUNITY PRESS

The first gun sounds at 9 a.m. Saturday, June16, to signal the official start of Loveland’s Amazing Race 7. For race founders Doug Portmann, Kathy Schickel, Dr. Gary Huber and Martin Schickel, when one race ends the next one begins. “After the race, we had clean up,” Portmann said. “We saw people signing up like crazy. That goes online 6 o'clock race day.” Registration for the next year starts at 6 p.m. race day and thus begins the long road to staging what is now arguably Loveland’s single biggest annual event. This will be the seventh year for the race, which started in 2006. Since then, Loveland’s Amazing Race has distributed more than $300,000 to more than 20 different local and national charity organizations. “We’ve created 140 different

challenges,” Portman said, thinking out loud about what they’ve done in the first six years. “Every year the 20 challenges are new and different.” The money doesn’t just show up. There’s no manual to look up challenge ideas. Ideas for new challenges are exactly where it all begins for Portmann and Dr. Gary Huber. The last racer has barely crossed the finish line when they begin working on new ideas for the next amazing race. “We start coming up with challenges on the night of the race,” Huber said. “When this one ends, that night we’ll sit and we’ll talk about it. We start generating ideas then.” There’s no “iPhone app” for laying out the race course. Kathy Schickel recruits and schedules the hundreds of volunteers. Before the volunteers, she begins by laying out the race course. It changes every year. She’s the one See AMAING, Page A2

LSFD buying new ambulance Demo model should extend vehicle life By Leah Fightmaster

Symmes Township Board of Trustees approved the purchase of a new ambulance and the sale of a fire station. Loveland/Symmes Fire Department Chief Otto Huber said the new ambulance will replace

one that is 10-years-old, which is the oldest in the department. Huber added that the department typically replaces ambulances at about the 10-year mark, with the mileage at about 100,000, which is how much this ambulance has on it. Rather than sell the old ambulance and buy new, Huber said the department decided to trade it for a demonstration model used to sell ambulances. Although the demonstration model has about

30,000 miles on it already, it is a heavier duty vehicle than the department normally buys, which is medium-duty. Huber said the upgrade to the heavy-duty ambulance, including the miles already on it, should increase its life to about 150,000 to 175,000 miles before the department will need to replace it. Trustee Ken Bryant pointed out that the additional mileage could

John Yates Jr. received an award from Symmes Township on June 5. Yates witnessed an electrical fire in his neighbor's house and rushed to call 911 while attempting to put the fire out himself. He said the reaction stemmed from time living in the country, where only a volunteer fire department was available for emergencies. THANKS TO LUANNE FELTER

who figures out where it will go. “We might have talked about it post-race,” Schickel said. “Doug started having ideas about what he’d like to do the next year, what areas he’d like it to go through. I just figure out how to piece it all together and route a course.”

When 1,000 racers arrive on race day, they have their start time. They have maps to guide them through the course and the challenges. They know where the finish is. For the committee, everything starts all over with the opening of registration on race day. They don’t know where it ends. “I just changed something on it (the course layout) a couple weeks ago,” Schickel said. “When the committee signs off on it, then I gotta get police approval on it. They have some very good input. I might have to change or reroute something for a better way.” The main considerations are to make it different, get the right ratio of biking distance to run/walk distance and keep it safe. The racers like more bike and less foot travel. Portman and Huber take about 30 challenge ideas to the committee in September. Sometimes what one thinks is a great idea, others don’t

ber when we sit down, I think he and I just drive around in our cars dreaming and thinking of something weird and whacky. Some years are tougher than others. ” After they come up with the challenges, they try to match them with challenge station sponsors. Kathy matches the volunteers with areas on the course.

Huber added that the combination of trading in the old ambulance and purchasing a demonstration model brought the cost down about $35,000 below its budgeted price, coming in at about $165,000 in the end.

Homearama opens at Willows Bend By John Seney

Homearama here.” Hal Silverman of Hal Homes is developing Willows Bend and has a home in the show. “I thank the Home Builders Association for selecting Willows Bend,” he said. “It’s a wonderful location.” The other builders at the show are Potterhill Homes, Artisan Estate Homes, Walker Homes, Justin Doyle Homes and Grand Estates Custom by Fischer. Three of the six homes have been sold, Rolfes said.

MIAMI TWP. — The 50th anniversary Homearama is open at the Willows Bend subdivision. “As a lifelong resident of Clermont County, I am proud the county is hosting Homearama for the first time,” Carolyn Rolfes, president of the Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati, said June 7 at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the home show. Rolfes said at the first Homearama in Finneytown in 1962, homes ranged in price from $20,000 to $55,000. “We’ve come a long way,” she said. The six homes at this year’s show range in price from $675,000 to $1 million. Miami Township Trustee Mary Makley Wolff welcomed the home builders. “We believe Miami Township is a great place to live, work and play,” she said. “I am proud to have

Alert officer captures Miamiville metal thieves By Jeanne Houck

MONTGOMERY — Montgomery police say a sloppily packed Ford Explorer was the undoing of two brothers they caught with $1,600-worth of stolen loot including catalytic converters and scrap metal. A Montgomery police officer stopped Ronald Anderson, 55, of East Price Hill, and Terrance Anderson, 54, of Covington, Ky., on southbound Montgome-

ry Road the afternoon of May 27 “because there were items about ready to fall out from the back of the vehicle, which was full of metal items,” according to a police report. Montgomery police subsequently learned that the Miamiville Garage had been broken into earlier that day, impounded the Ford Explorer and called in the Miami Township police. The Anderson brothers admitted they had been coming from Clermont

County when they were stopped, Montgomery police said in their report. They said that when Miami Township police executed a search warrant on the Ford Explorer, officers uncovered car batteries, a battery charger, a laptop computer and numerous bottles of motor oil in addition to the catalytic converters. The Anderson brothers were charged with felony receiving stolen property. It was a bad break for Ronald Anderson’s daughter, who owns the Ford Explorer and was cited for allowing her father to drive the sport utility vehicle even though he does not have a driver’s license because his has been suspended 16 times. Blue Ash police recently asked the public to help them track down whomever had stolen catalytic converters from five vehicles parked in apartment complexes in the city. Montgomery Police Chief Don Simpson said he does not know now whether any of the catalytic converters found in the Ford Explorer were stolen in Blue Ash. “Unfortunately there are several people stealing converters and it is hard to tell who hit the Blue Ash area,” Simpson said. “Rest assured we will not stop looking and arresting people however.” For more about your community, visit Montgomery.

Fest to rain peanuts By Leah Fightmaster

Symmes Township residents and employees are hoping the weather will be pleasant next weekend, but it will be raining Saturday – raining peanuts. Inspired by a 4th of July celebration she attendsin a small North Carolina town, Carol Sims, assistant fiscal officer for the township, suggested a peanut drop as a different way to bring people to the annual Symmesfest. This year’s festival will be June 14 to 16 at Symmes Park, 11600 Lebanon Road. Symmesfest will open at 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday at close at 11 p..m., while Saturday it will run from 5 to 11 p.m. Sims said the township has about 100 pounds of peanuts, provided by the Loveland/Symmes Fire Association. About 200


peanuts will be painted different colors by township employees, and each color will correspond to a specific type of prize participants can win. Those peanuts will be taken up in the air in the fire truck’s bucket at 6 p.m. Saturday and thrown down to the people below, who will gather the peanuts and turn their painted ones in for prizes. Sims said township businesses have donated about 200 prizes so far, with donations such as coupons and gift certificates. Several will be painted red, white and blue, which will be varying amounts for a cash prize. After the drop, participants can keep the peanuts they collect. “People should just come out and see it,” she said. In addition to the peanut drop, two bands have

been signed to perform at the festival. Hot Wax is scheduled to perform from 7 to 11 p.m. Friday evening, while The Websters will play during the same times Saturday. The festival will also feature a fireworks show at 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, while carnival rides and food vendors will be on hand for attendees. Sims said her nieces and nephews enjoy the peanut drop each year, and hope Symmes Township residents find it as fun as they do. “I thought it was a way to do something kind of different to bring people to the festival,” she said. “... I hope it becomes a tradition in Symmes Township and Symmesfest.” For more about your community, visit SymmesTownship.

Obesity epidemic threatens our health $147 billion! In today’s financial world, we discuss the terms billion and even trillions, as inconsequential. Why $147 billion? That’s the amount we spend as a nation each year in direct medical costs as a result of obesity. Recent studies have predicted that by 2030, the rate of obesity in the U.S. could be over 40 percent. Here in Hamilton County, the numbers are even worse than what we see nationally. Twentytwo percent of our third-graders are obese. The adult obesity rate is 26 percent. While money is a good way to draw attention to the issue, the true heartbreak is in the human suffering brought on by obesity.

Hamilton County Public Health recently had an opportunity to share a public preview of the current HBO series “Weight of the Nation.” I must admit that the film was shocking, moving and ultimately, scary. Our current generation of youth could likely be the first in recorded history to live shorter lives than the previous generation, entirely due to obesity. What’s fueling this epidemic? Government policies have helped make less-than-desirable foods inexpensive while healthy foods like fruits and vegetables are more expensive. Today’s portion sizes are larger. Soda and sugar-sweetened drinks are staples contributing thousands of

Social Security disability benefits Disability is something most people do not like to think about. if you’re not able to work because you have a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death, you may be able to get Social Security disability benefits. Here’s what you need to know. You should apply for disability benefits as soon as you become disabled. It can take months to obtain all your medical records and process an application for disability benefits (three to five months, on average). Generally, the information we need includes: » your Social Security number; » your birth or baptismal certificate; » names, addresses, and phone numbers of the doctors, caseworkers, hospitals, and clinics that took care of you, and dates of your visits; » names and dosage of all the medicine you take; » medical records from your doctors, therapists, hospitals, clinics, and caseworkers that you already have in your possession; » laboratory and test results; » a summary of where you worked and the kind of work you did; and » a copy of your most recent

W-2 Form (Wage and Tax Statement) or, if you are self-employed, your Federal tax return for the past year. Important – Sue Denny COMMUNITY PRESS Do not delay filing for disabilGUEST COLUMNIST ity benefits if you don’t have all the above information in your possession. Social Security will assist you in getting the necessary documents, including obtaining your medical records. The fastest and most convenient way to apply for disability is online at You can save your application as you go, so you can take a break at any time. If you are approved for disability benefits, that doesn’t mean you’ll never return to work. Social Security has special rules called “work incentives” that allow you to test your ability to work.

Clear ways you can help reduce smog this summer With summer right around the corner, air quality concerns are on the radar but the Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency is here to help you find ways to reduce smog. On your way to work you may see “Smog Alert” flashing on the highway boards. It is especially important on smog alert days to fuel your car after sundown and to avoid any unnecessary driving. Even on days when there is not a smog alert, it is important to be aware of your pollution output. Every step toward a more sustainable lifestyle is a step toward a greener community. Here are some other smog-reducing tips: » Take the bus (METRO: 513621-4455 or TANK: 859-331-8265). » Carpool; call 513-241-RIDE. » Bike, walk or inline skate instead of driving.


» Avoid using gasoline powered lawn equipment. » Keep your vehicle maintained. » Do not leave vehicles running when not in use. » Do not top off when refuel-

ing. » Avoid use of oil-based paints and stains. » Save electricity; if you’re not using it, turn it off. Maria Butauski is a public relations intern at the Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency. She can be reached at 513-946-7777

empty calories to our diets. Concurrently, physical activity is on the decline. Combined with increased caloric intake, this is a Tim Ingram COMMUNITY PRESS deadly combination. GUEST COLUMNIST Finally, we are bombarded with messaging from the food industry, to the tune of nearly $30 billion a year in advertising. As county health commissioner, it’s difficult for me to sit back and watch this epidemic progress because at the end of the day, most of it is preventable and ulti-

mately reversible. There is no single answer. One comprehensive approach is the burgeoning WeTHRIVE! movement. WeTHRIVE! represents individuals and organizations joining together to make our communities, workplaces, schools and places of worship healthier. WeTHRIVE! has already worked with several communities in Hamilton County to develop safe and accessible play areas for children. Representatives have worked with convenience stores and produce distributors to include fresh foods in their product offerings. WeTHRIVE! ambassadors partner with schools, daycare centers and af-

ter-school activity facilities to include healthy foods, exercise opportunities and tobacco-free policies. A good place to start is with a visit to Adopt a school or daycare facility and help them get healthy. Start a community garden. Work with your local convenience store to sell fresh foods. Encourage your families to incorporate physical activity into your daily regimen. Text HEALTH to 300400 and join the free Txt4Health program to receive text tips on healthy lifestyles.

Foster parenting brings forth true love stories My foster care story is a love story. But it’s not the kind of love story you expect. It begins with my divorce. In spite of my three beautiful children, I was feeling sorry for myself and began searching for something more. The answer to my prayers found me. A teenage girl from my neighborhood came to me for advice. Weeks later, she approached me, and told me I was very helpful to her. She said, “Miss Maria, you should become a foster mother.” The young lady went on to confess that she herself was a foster child. “What?” I said. “You can’t be; you don’t look like a foster child!” She responded, “That’s because I have a good foster mother.” My young neighbor refused to give up on me. She referred me to her foster mother, who in

turn, told me about Lighthouse Youth Services. The staff at Lighthouse is amazing! They are genuinely friendMaria Bonds COMMUNITY PRESS ly, take time to get to know GUEST COLUMNIST you, welcome you with open arms, and value each and every person involved with foster care. I cannot say enough wonderful things about them. They taught and prepared me for what I may face as a foster parent, and are still there to support me every step of the way. I have been a foster parent for six years now. I have had 11 foster children in those years. Some more challenging than others, some staying longer than others, but, no matter

what, each of them experienced love. It is sad to think that not every child out there gets a hug before crawling into bed. I wish everyone had the opportunity to see the transformation of a child, with just a little compassion, patience and love. I have seen children completely changed in a matter of days. All they needed was for someone to teach them what love is. It is then that they learn to love themselves. And it really does work, if you take the time. Love changes people for the better, and I see it in my home every time a kid comes in. And the best part is, Lighthouse foster care makes it possible. After all, the heart of Lighthouse is love. Maria Bonds is a Lighthouse foster parent. She lives in Finneytown.

CH@TROOM June 6 question Should the Ohio General Assembly consider a ban on the sale of large sodas and other sugary drinks in an effort to combat obesity? Why or why not?

“As soon as they ban ‘Housewives of Orange County,’ ‘Jersey Shore,’ half of the items sold at Kroger, girls' shorts that say 'Dancer' on the butt, saying 'should have went' instead of 'should have gone,’ Panera Bread, Big Apple Bagels, anything at Starbucks ... I could continue but I do have a life. Government will let you kill your unborn baby, but you can't have a Big Gulp? Oh, the insanity.” L.A.D.B. “This kind of thing (being considered already in New York) is government interference in the private sector in a frightening way that is almost impossible to believe. People, we all have free will, and we can do whatever we want as long as our actions don't violate the rights of others. “If I want to be fat, that's my business. If I want to work out regularly, that's my business, too. Government, stay OUT of our personal liberty!”

What next, no free refills? Seriously, even if it is the job of government to combat obesity, its track record for fighting drug and alcohol abuse prove it incapable of succeeding in any war to control human behavior.” R.V. “They should ban sugary drinks right after they ban jumbo fries, unprotected sex, malt liquor, body odor, smoking, flatulence, cursing, driving while texting, eating red meat every day and dirty cars. “People already have the right to do all sorts of things that are offensive to others or bad for them.

Ribs a good dish for Father’s Day

Grilled baby back ribs

Brine for up to 4 pounds of ribs: This is optional, but I hope you take the time to do it, since brining is a way of increasing the moisture holding capacity of meat, resulting in a moister product when it’s cooked. 1 cup Kosher salt 1/2 cup sugar 1 gallon cold water

Dissolve salt and sugar in water. Brine 4 hours, remove from brine, pat dry and proceed with rub. Rita’s rub: Sprinkle ribs with rub up to a day head. Leftover

Ribs, with a rub and grilled, makes a good Father’s Day dish. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD rub can be stored in the frig. Mix together: 6 tablespoons garlic powder 3 tablespoons chili powder 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon cumin 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons salt 2 teaspoons coarsely ground black pepper 2 teaspoons Spanish hot or sweet smoked paprika or regular hot or sweet paprika 2 teaspoons allspice

Ribs: 4 pounds meaty baby back pork ribs, cut into portions To season ribs: Sprinkle rub on both sides. Put on baking sheet and cover with foil. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to l day.

To grill ribs: Grill ribs over medium heat until tender and cooked, turning occasionally, about 25-35 minutes. Then baste with sauce. Brush each side generously. Continue grilling until sauce forms a sticky coating, about 3 minutes per side, brushing more sauce on as needed. Serve, passing more barbeque sauce alongside. My hot and smoky barbecue sauce After cooking, adjust seasonings, adding more vinegar, etc. if you like. I always add more brown sugar to make it taste similar to Montgomery Inn’s.

sauce 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar 1/4 cup molasses 1/4 cup yellow mustard 2 tablespoons Tabasco 2 tablespoons rub (see above) 2 teaspoons liquid smoke or more Chipotle pepper powder to taste or 1-2 chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce, chopped fine (or couple shakes cayenne – go easy on the cayenne if using)

4 cups catsup 1/2 cup cider vinegar 1/3 to 1/2 cup Worcestershire

Re-seasoning cast iron cookware

Combine everything in saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook until dark and thick, about 20 minutes.

Several of you have asked about this. And if you are ever lucky enough to come across an old American made cast iron pan, like Lodge or Griswold, don’t hesitate to buy it. In my opinion, these gems are still the best as far as quality of iron and workmanship. Log onto my YouTube channel ( to see my video on seasoning iron skillets. Here’s the most current information. This is what Lodge cookware recommends, and they are an American company manufacturing American cast iron. Lodge’s recommendations are only slightly different than my video, which was made a few years ago. Wash cookware with hot, soapy water and a stiff brush. (Lodge says it’s OK to use soap this time because you are preparing to re-season the cookware). Rinse and dry completely. Apply a thin, even coating of melted solid vegetable shortening (or cooking oil of your choice) to the cookware (inside and out). Place aluminum foil on the bottom rack of the oven to catch any dripping. Set oven temperature to 350400 degrees. Place cookware upside down on the top rack of oven. Bake for at least one hour. After the hour, turn oven off and let cookware cool in oven. Store uncovered, in a dry place when cooled.

St. Vincent DePaul collects food at Reds game The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is partnering with The Cincinnati Reds and News 5 for the sixth year to Strike Out Hunger. The wives of Reds players and volunteers from St. Vincent de Paul will be will be collecting food Wednesday, June 13, before and during the Reds-Indians game at Great American Ball Park to feed families in need in Cincinnati. Fans who donate a minimum of two non-perishable food items in designated food collection barrels will receive a view level ticket to the July 30 Reds-Padres game - limit one ticket per person. The barrels will be placed outside the gates, so fans don’t need a ticket to

the June 13 game to donate and receive the free ticket to the July 30 game. The 2011 St. Vincent de Paul Reds Food Drive collected more than 6,000 pounds of food, which fed 2,100 people in our community for one day. “We’ve seen a record number of people at our food pantries,” said Liz Carter, executive director of St. Vincent de Paul. “Many families are still struggling in the face of a challenging economy. They make many sacrifices, but food is vital. It is one sacrifice they simply can’t make. With the support of the community, we can continue to feed our neighbors in need.”

In 2011, St. Vincent de Paul provided more than 70,000 people with groceries, enough people to fill Great American Ballpark more than one and a half times. About half of the people fed were children. For more information regarding the Reds food drive for St. Vincent de Paul, contact Reds Community Relations at (513) 7657018.

Senior Center hosts Medicare event The Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program (OSHIIP), the state’s official source for free and unbiased Medicare information and counseling, will hold a “Welcome to Medicare” event in Hamilton County at Sycamore Senior Center at 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 13, to help new and soon-to-be beneficiaries understand the basics of Medicare. The facility is at 4455 Carver Woods Drive. “Our staff is visiting every region of the state to personally help Ohioans new to Medicare understand how their new health insurance will work,” Taylor said of OSHIIP, a program of the Ohio Department of Insurance. “Transitioning into Medicare can sometimes be a complicat-

Tip: I do use a bit of soap to wash my cast iron pans regularly, though the debate rages on about using soap at all. After the pan is completely dry, I’ll heat it 1 minute on the stove to open up the pores, then I’ll wipe a little oil all over the inside. As it cools, the pores close, keeping the pan seasoned.


I still chuckle when I ask my husband, Frank, what he wants for Father’s Day. His answer has never varied in all the years we’ve been married: “Some peace and quiet and Rita barbecued Heikenfeld ribs.” RITA’S KITCHEN The ribs are the easy part … and are still his favorite. The peace and quiet is another matter. Remember all the dads in your life, biological and otherwise. As I tell you each year, send a card, give them a call, or invite them to join in the feast.

Kilroy at Democrat picnic Former Congresswoman Mary Jo Kilroy will be making an appearance in Blue Ash at the Blue Ash Northeast Democratic Club annual pcnic, Tuesday, June 19. The event starts at 6:30 p.m., and will take place at the Blue Ash Park, 4433 Cooper Road, in the Blue Ash Shelter. “Former Congresswoman Mary Jo Kilroy will be educating us on the Freedom to Marry Ohio ballot referendum. We are honored to have her as our special guest speaker,” said Julie Brook, president of BANDC. Kilroy grew up in Euclid. A daughter of a pipe fitter, she paid her way through college by working at hospitals, as a waitress and as a counselor. Kilroy’s passions are women’s rights, marriage equality and anti-poverty issues. The former congresswoman made her first political appearance 20 years ago when she ran for the Columbus School Board. Kilroy is involved in promoting the Freedom to


Book about life with celiac disease By Chuck Gibson

Kim Gray is a mother of three healthy children. When her weight dropped to 88 pounds, she knew something was off. Doctors diagnosed her with celiac disease in March 2009. Her identical twin sister, Kate Sander, was diagnosed later that same year. “Our lives and eating habits have never been the same,” Gray said. “We have learned, the hard way, the ‘dos and don’ts of eating, cooking, dining out, and negotiating our way through grocery aisles.” Learning the hard way inspired Kim to help others with the disease. She hopes her book: “Something’s Off – Living with Celiac Disease” will help the one out of 133 Americans required to follow a gluten-free diet because of celiac disease. It takes a while to adjust to the diet and the way of life. She is a “true believer” that everything in your life happens for a reason. “I just knew I wanted to do something with it; helping people,” she said. Her first thought was to open a store that has everything right there. Gray even had a Loveland location for it. She mentioned it to a local businessman who gave her idea a kind of ho-hum response. “I thought: I’m starting too big,” Gray said. “It would be great to walk in a store and you could have everything in the store; gluten-free or even…people struggle with dairy.” For more than a year Gray thought of different ways she could help others. Bad eating experiences on a family vacation finally triggered the idea to write a book. She says it was a terrible experience, places had no idea, and she had a meltdown. “You know after a year and a half, I thought I had things under control,” Gray said. “I just lost it in front of friends. I just thought I want to write a book. I think that’s how I can get to people that have been newly diagnosed.” Gray is launching the book during May, which is National Celiac Disease Awareness Month. Celiac is a genetically inherited auto-immune disease. People with celiac are sensitive to proteins found in wheat, oats, barley and rye. It is believed that more than 3 million people in the U.S. suffer from the

disease. “When I was first diagnosed, my gastroenterologist actually apologized to me,” she said. He didn’t have much information to tell her. “Go to the web. Go to and read and you can learn,” she said he told her. They still don’t know. Her sister had to specifically ask the doctor to test for Celiac. It provided the motivation for Gray to tell her story, to tell other stories, and then give readers some tips on what you can have. Gluten-free food is expensive. Gray’s book lists the restaurant chains where you can eat. It takes you through the staples: crackers, breads, pastas etc… Rather than go through the trial and error and spending all your money, the book shares the best on the market. “It’s more like selfhelp,” Gray said. “If a gastroenterologist could have handed me that book when I was diagnosed, it would have been very helpful. It would have saved me a lot of time, and a lot of frustration.” The book also helps people who just don’t understand it. “Wherever you go, a party, a wedding, a baby shower, there’s food,” she said. “It’s always a conversation. Some people ask and genuinely care, other times its ‘OK, I’m done.’ Sometimes you feel like a freak.” Gray shares strategies in the book on how to be sure you surround yourself with the right things so family and friends get it. Her sister had a brother-in-law say, “Are you still doing that gluten-free thing?” While a gluten-free diet helps people with Celiac live normal lives, it does not cure it. “I’ve had people read the book and say: ‘Oh my God, I had no idea!’” Gray said. “They find it very in-

formative.” The book is about what you can eat. A colleague of Gray’s was just diagnosed with celiac. He wants the book on i-Book. He asked her how she feels. “I cannot tell you how much better I feel,” she said. “In hindsight, it’s unbelievable. It’s what motivates me. That’s what drives me.” Gray began writing the book a little over one year after her diagnosis. She is not a writer; she is a human resources professional with Procter & Gamble. Stealing time to write whenever she could, it took her about 18 months to complete the book. She wanted to keep it simple. “I just want it to be an easy read,” Gray said. “Sit down, read it for an hour, relate to it, get some tips, and know you’re not alone. I want to give back.” More at: or order the book at:, and www.barnesandnoble. com or
