BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
Carroll gets first raise in 3 years
Salary jumps almost $8K per year By Jeanne Houck email@example.com
LOVELAND — Five weeks after learning that Loveland City Manager Tom Carroll will not be leaving to take a job with Montgomery, the Loveland City Council voted to give Carroll his first raise three years. City council voted 4 to 2 June 12 to increase Carroll’s annual base salary from $103,542 to
$111,225, effective Jan. 1 of this year. Loveland Vice Mayor David Bednar and council members Paulette Leeper, Angie Settell and Brent Zuch, who voted for the increase, noted that Carroll’s 4-percent wage hike equals the cumulative 4-percent in increases other Loveland city employees received in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Council members Linda Cox and Mark Fitzgerald voted against the pay hike. Cox said she had planned to support giving Carroll a raise
istrator in North College Hill. Loveland Mayor Rob Weisgerber was absent from the meeting. Leeper said Carroll’s old salary compared poorly with that of other city managers in the region and that the increase doesn’t bring it anywhere near the top. Zuch said Loveland will continue to get more than its money’s worth from Carroll and that paying employees poorly “is a recipe for a bad staff.” “It’s a recipe for a bad city,” Zuch said.
commensurate with other city employees, but changed her mind after talking to “several” residents who said they would not vote for a proCarroll posal to increase Loveland’s income tax rate from 1 percent to 1.25 percent Nov. 6 if the city manager got a raise. Fitzgerald did not say why he voted against Carroll’s pay hike. Fitzgerald is a former Loveland city manager and is city admin-
Ten years of school-grown sunflowers and tomatoes Granny’s program has strong roots in Loveland community
By Jeanne Houck firstname.lastname@example.org
LOVELAND — It’s been 10 years since Roberta Paolo, everyone’s favorite granny, opened Granny’s Garden School with its flower and vegetable gardens at the Loveland Primary School-Loveland Elementary School campus off Loveland-Madeira Road in Loveland. The garden school, which also operates now at the Loveland Early Childhood Center on Loveland-Miamiville Road in Loveland, is an independent non-profit that provides the program free to the Loveland City Schools. “We are very pleased and proud to share our Loveland primary, elementary and early childhood campuses with this organization,” said John Marschhausen, superintendent of the Loveland City Schools. Here Paolo, executive director of Granny’s Garden School, talks about her enterprise. Please tell us a little about yourself. “I live in Loveland, next door to the Loveland Elementary School. I moved here about eight years ago because it is so convenient to the gardens. I am 65. I had a number of ‘careers’ before Granny’s Garden School, including stay-at-home-mom, district sales manager for Avon products and public relations coordinator for Women Helping Women.” Why did you open Granny’s Garden School? “I started Granny’s Garden School in 2002 when my two older grandchildren were in the first and second grades at Love-

part of the school day for the 48 classrooms that participate in the program. “Today, we are one of the largest and most comprehensive school garden programs in the
country and routinely sought out. Through our Schoolyard Nature Network, we are training others to develop their own school garden programs. Though we have been asked to do so, we are not interested in franchising or setting up a lot of little Granny’s Garden Schools. Our focus still is, and always will be, providing the best possible plant-based environmental education program to Loveland’s students.” How has Granny’s Garden School changed over the years? “The originally all-volunteer organization now employs the equivalent of four full-time people. In addition, in 2011, more than 600 people volunteered at Granny’s Garden School and hundreds of others visited to tour the gardens. Most of these were from outside Loveland and about 75 percent bought lunch at local restaurants while here.” How many children do you think you have reached via your gardens? “Each year we work with more than 1,400 of Loveland’s first- through fourth-grade students. Each student spends an average of 12 hours in gardenbased learning each year, and those hours supplement what is taught in the classroom. Lessons developed to address the statebased academic and curriculum standards for each grade are on the Granny’s Garden School website (www.grannysgardenschool. com) and available to educators. “In a recent survey more than

Montgomery in March chose Carroll as one of four finalists among a pool of more than 40 people interested in succeeding Cheryl Hilvert as Montgomery city manager. Montgomery City Council decided in May to promote its own assistant city manager, Wayne Davis, to city manager, and to pay him $120,000 a year. Hilvert was paid $152,000 annually when she retired last year. For more about your community, visit www.Cincinnati.com/Loveland.
Loveland aims at Tate trees Beetle infestation a real concern By Jeanne Houck email@example.com
LOVELAND — Fair warning to Tate Township trees: The city of Loveland has you in its sights. Loveland City Council approved a resolution June 12 urging state and federal agencies to remove all trees in Asian longhorned beetle quarantine areas - as opposed to only those with known infestations - to ensure complete eradication of the beetles. Tate Township is a quarantined area. Voting to destroy trees wasn’t an easy thing for council members to do in Loveland, which has a Tree/Environment Committee, an aggressive recycling program and a slew of green initiatives. So what sounded the alarm? An answer is in the “whereases” of the resolution approved by Loveland City Council, which says, in part: “The Asian Longhorned Beetle is recognized as a significant threat to the hardwood tree population in the United States because it has no natural enemies in the domestic ecosystem. “The first Asian Longhorned Beetle infestation in Ohio was discovered in Tate Township in Clermont County in June 2011.

50 percent of our fourthgrade students reported that they have started a garden at home. “The gardens are also shared with the community in a variety of ways. Our students have created more than 3,500 miniature bouquets since 2003 that
have that have been delivered through Meals-onWheels. Our popular Picka-Bouquet Club and Summer Harvest programs help with funding and help with summer maintenance so the gardens are ready and producing when students return in the fall.” How are you funded and how can people help financially? “We are funded by donations from individuals and

private foundations. Donations of whatever amount are always much appreciated (Click onto ‘Donate’ on the home page of the garden school’s website). We are a very frugal organization. Our funds go directly to bringing the program to our students. A little bit of ‘seed’ money goes a long way in Granny’s gardens.” Anything you’d like to add? “We commend the Loveland school board, superintendent and principals for creating an environment where an organization such as Granny’s Garden School could evolve. Their willingness to expand educational opportunities outside of the four walls of the traditional classroom makes it possible to offer a unique learning opportunity to their students.
Granny's Garden School, operated by Roberta Paolo, is celebrating its 10th anniversary. JEANNE HOUCK/THE COMMUNITY PRESS
“Their vision and enthusiasm put Loveland 10 years ahead of a trend that is now sweeping the country, with thousands of new school gardens being established just last year.”

“The infested area was quarantined in order to prevent further spreading. “Complete eradication can only be achieved by removing every host tree in a quarantined area.” Loveland City Councilman Brent Zuch said he knows it would be “devastating” for property owners to lose all their trees, but urged them to think of the greater good. “That’s the only way that we know it won’t spread beyond the quarantined area,” Zuch said, citing forestry experts. “(Otherwise) we could become a tree-less community.” For more about your community, visit www.Cincinnati.com/ Loveland.

‘Disciples’ do good works riding cycles By John Seney firstname.lastname@example.org
MIAMI TWP. — A group of motorcycle riders have joined together to help fund programs at the Eastside Christian Church in Miami Township. Bruce Moon of Batavia Township, president of the Highway Disciples Motorcycle Ministry, said the group’s efforts help fund the church’s food pantry and Help Build Hope, a church program that provides tutoring for kids. “We decided we wanted to do something to help the church programs,” he said. The highway disciples have been in existence for two years and have about a
dozen regular members. Although the group calls itself a motorcycle ministry, owning and riding a motorcycle is not required. Sharon Dowers of Anderson Township doesn’t own a motorcycle, but participates in many of the group’s events. She became involved in the group because she attends Eastside Christian Church. “I was looking for a way to give back,” she said. Dowers also works for the corporate offices of Gold Star Chili in Cincinnati and has worked with her employer to sponsor a number of events for the group.

The highway disciples recently had a fundraiser at Gold Star Chili at 85 River’s Edge in Milford. Gold Star donated 20 percent of all sales during
the fundraiser to the Help Build Hope program. “The money goes to worthwhile causes,” Dowers said.
Miami Twp. to buy 2 fire engines By John Seney email@example.com
MIAMI TWP. — Officials plan to use a $1 million bond issue to finance the purchase of two new fire engines for the Miami Township Fire & EMS. In April, the trustees approved refinancing $3.495 million in existing bonds originally issued to pay for the Miami Township Civic Center purchase and the Woodspoint Drive extension. Because of low interest rates, the refinancing of the bonds was expected to save up to $282,000, township officials said.
Administrator Larry Fronk said officials decided to take advantage of the low interest rates and add the $1 million bond issue for the fire engines. The total bond issue would be for $4.495 million. The revenue stream from several TIF districts will be used to cover debt service on the new bond issue, Fronk said. Fire Chief James Whitworth told trustees at the June 11 work session the new fire engines will be used to replace older fire engines in the fleet from the 1990s. “They are well beyond front-line service,” he said.
The trustees were expected to approve at their June 19 meeting the recommendation of Whitworth to purchase the two fire engines for $975,000 from Rosenbauer America Fire Apparatus. Assistant Fire Chief Harold Thiele said one of the engines would have a full-size heavy-duty body for use at the township’s north station at Wards Corner and Branch Hill-Guinea roads. A second medium-sized body fire engine with a shorter length and wheelbase would be used at the south fire station, 1154 U.S. 50, he said. Thiele said the smaller
truck was needed in the southern area of the township because there were a lot of narrow, winding roads in the area that a larger truck would have trouble maneuvering through. A 2002 pumper/heavy rescue truck that is the largest in the fleet would continue to be housed at the central station, 5888 McPicken Drive, Thiele said. After the new trucks arrive, the township plans to get rid of the two older fire engines, Whitworth said. That will leave the department with six firefighting vehicles at three stations, he said.

By Jeff Wallner
LOVELAND — Austin Klueh was lying
on the field, nose bloodied and cheekbone shattered after a violent collision with a Milford player Oct. 10 last season. Despite being in considerable pain, the former Loveland High School soccer player’s first concern was his team, which had lost its other two senior captains to injury earlier in the year. “He said ‘Coach, I think I can get back in there,’” said Tigers head coach Mike Dunlap. “But I could tell it was more than just a nosebleed. His facial features were distorted. He was in a lot of pain.” Klueh narrowly avoided a ruptured retina. Amazingly, after nearly four hours of surgery, which necessitated three plates and 16 screws, Klueh was back playing soccer by November. “I’m really blessed and really lucky to still be playing,” said Klueh, who has committed to play at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College. Klueh, a three-time Fort Ancient Valley Conference first-teamer, has been named Loveland Herald Sportsman of the Year. More than 596,000 votes were cast for the 21 Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year ballots in Ohio and Northern Kentucky. “It’s a big honor,” said Klueh, who was named first-team all-state in 2011. “I worked hard to improve throughout this year. I took great pride in that.” Klueh, a four-year starter at Loveland who owns a rare distinction by starting as a freshman, received interest from a handful of Division I programs including Marshall and Cincinnati. But midway through his junior year, Klueh developed a strong relationship with Cincinnati State head coach Mike Combs. They both agreed that Klueh would be better served to hone his soccer skills at Cincinnati State for two years before making the jump to D-1. “He’s very mature, and makes good decisions on the field,” said Combs. “I think he can be an impact player immediately. He could’ve been a D-I player, and still could be. Here, he can play right away.” Klueh believes Cincinnati State, which

has produced 15 D-I players and finished as national runner-up in 2010, is a good first step for him both athletically and academically. “Academically it’ll help me transition into college level classes and learn how to manage my time,” Klueh said. “Athletically, it’ll help me get used to the speed of play at the college level, and different style of play.” Klueh leaves behind some precious memories from his playing career at Loveland, including winning the FAVC Buckeye Division title as a sophomore and FAVC East Division crown his junior year. He ranks starting on varsity as a freshman and reaching the district finals as his most coveted achievements. “I was pretty honored (to start as a freshman),” Klueh said. “It’s pretty rare. I remember being very nervous. But the coaches and senior captains settled me down.” A concussion near the end of his freshman season that resulted in five missed games and the head-on collision in the Milford game last October is all that prevented Klueh from starting every match in his four-year career. Klueh said once his vision cleared following the surgery, he saw his past, present, and future in a new light. “It did alter my perspective a lot,” he said. “I don’t take anything for granted.”
LOVELAND — Despite starring in three sports during her senior year at Loveland High School, Rachel Baker’s most cherished high school memory isn’t a gamewinning goal, clutch shot or recordbreaking highjump. It’s a week spent painting, replacing windows, and picking up yard waste. What might seem like mundane household chores to most kids ranks among Baker’s most rewarding and eye-opening experiences. Two summers ago she ventured to Tennessee with members of Christ in Youth Know Sweat, now known as Engage: Service. The group was on a mission, to help a woman who could no longer walk make some simple improvements to her home. “I just remember seeing her face,” said Baker. “It felt awesome. I’ve worked at homeless shelters, done missions. It’s definitely taught me to be more understanding of people’s needs.” Baker was named Loveland Herald Sportswoman of the Year. There were more than 596,000 votes cast for all 21 ballots for Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year in Ohio and Northern Kentucky. “I was really excited when I heard I’d won,” she said. “I didn’t know much about the award. I was really surprised.” When Duquesne University women’s soccer head coach Al Alvine began recruiting Baker, he was impressed with her size, speed and approach to the game. “She has all the physical attributes,” he said. While Baker’s ability as a soccer player is well-documented, a Catholic institution like Duquesne views its prospective student athletes in a much different light. “You have to be successful off the field, and perform in the classroom too. Community service has to be an integral part of their fabric,” Alvine said. “It’s not enough to be a good player.” Baker earned first-team, all-Fort Ancient Valley Conference honors after scoring 12 goals and recording three assists in 18 games for Loveland’s girls soccer team. In the winter, she scored 8.1 points per game, grabbed 10.5 rebounds, and had 24 blocks for Loveland’s girls basketball team. In the spring, Baker com-

peted in the high jump for the Tigers’ track team. “My senior year was my best season, in all three sports,” Baker said. “I worked really hard between my junior and senior years. I trained a lot. I got stronger and more focused.” Baker, a three-year starter in both basketball and soccer, chose to join the track team this spring mostly to help with her conditioning for soccer at Duquesne. “You run a lot during the track season,” she said. Amid everything else, Baker also was a member of Loveland High School's Link Crew freshman support team and Partners Club, which works with the Special Education department. And despite participating in three sports and spending much of her free time volunteering, Baker still maintained a 3.2 GPA, and was a three-time FAVC all-academic recipient. For now Baker plans to enjoy her summer before enrolling at Duquesne, where one of her first tasks will be to find some charitable organizations to partner with. “I like that (Duquesne) is in the city of Pittsburgh, which is a new city for me, a new start,” she said. “I’m hoping to find a church there so I can continue my mission work.”

Protection from scams, fraud A few years ago, Hamilton County Commissioner Greg Hartmann created the Coalition to Stop Fraud, Scams and Abuse. Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services is a member agency of this working group whose focus this month is on scams and fraud against residents with disabilities. Unfortunately, those with disabilities in our society have not been excluded from the increase in fraud and scams experienced by the general population in recent years. Individuals with disabilities are often more vulnerable, with less support and capacity to protect themselves. The Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities, which collects misappropriation data state wide, reported that the number of substantiated thefts involving individuals with
disabilities increased by 52 percent, from 961 in 2010 to 1,459 in 2011. The thefts were primarily identity, medications and personal property. To stem this dramatic increase, we want to share information that can help prevent fraud. Protecting an individual’s personal information is the only way to reduce identity theft over time. Social Security numbers, birth certificates, checking and savings account numbers, and personal identification numbers (PINs) are all key pieces of information that must be protected. Individuals with disabilities require assistance from caregivers for many of their daily needs. As a result, personal information is often accessible to many unauthorized people. We urge that access to personal information be restricted to the

or its allies.”
How should the United States respond to the atrocities in Syria?
“Tough question. Under the present administration, America ignored the atrocities in Iran and that nation's dictator continues making nuclear threats against American and Israel. “Then America ignored the situation in Egypt that toppled Hosni Mubarak. “However when it came to Libya, America claimed a NATO mandated no-fly zone forced us to help topple Libya's Muammar Gaddafi. That also cost American taxpayers billions of dollars. “Meanwhile America ignored the situation in Yemen that led to the overthrow of that nation's dictator and until now, has ignored the situation in Syria. After all that, America still has no clear policy for dealing with the 'Arab Spring.’ “Before taking any half-hearted action in Syria, President Obama needs to first produce a comprehensive policy for the Middle East in cooperation with our allies, if possible, and then take the appropriate action consistent with that policy, whatever action that may be. “But don't bet on any of this happening before the election.” R.V. “To begin with, instead of the endless political attacks on the GOP by our president, Obama should begin to focus on what is happening in Syria, and his speeches should continue to condemn what is happening under the Assad regime. “We should also put more pressure on the UN to be more aggressive in its stance toward Syria. We should encourage Kofi Annan, in his role as the UN-Arab League envoy to Syria to convene an international meeting with the Russians, the Chinese, and even Iran, and address what is going on in Syria with honesty and courage. “Unfortunately, as our experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan (and Vietnam) have shown, it would not be wise for us to launch a direct attack on the Assad regime, nor would we have the authority to do that. So we are relatively powerless, except in our effort to have our leaders continue to speak out, and where possible, cut off any monetary aid that is being given to either Syria
“Why should we respond at all? We cannot afford to try to right all the wrongs in the world, and when we try people hate us for it. “If the issue was in Canada or Mexico I could make a case for it. If Turkey, Iraq, Israel, and Jordan, countries that border them, don't see a need to respond why should we? “We have enough to worry about at home.” F.S.D. “We have seen and experienced in the Bush administration how a U.S. unilateral intervention just leads to draining our military, physically and mentally. It also runs up enormous debt and seems to be forgotten in the long term by citizens at home. “With the administration currently winding down Afghanistan and much of the Iraq war behind us, the U.S. just doesn't have the resources to get involved in Syria.” “The Syrian situation is one that should be shocking to all of the civilized countries of this world. Therefore it needs to be a response that is sanctioned and devised through the United Nations or through NATO. “We have enough troubles at home right now and our military deserves a much-needed break. We cannot continue to try and be the saviors of police of the world. The efforts must be united with the willingness, money, and commitment of people from other countries.” I.P.

A publication of
highest degree and that a shredder be used to discard sensitive data that is no longer required. Theft of medications, Alice Pavey COMMUNITY PRESS including narcotics and psyGUEST COLUMNIST chotropics, from individuals with disabilities continues to be a concern. The best step to avoid theft of medications is to establish a strict system for monitoring their handling. All medications should be stored securely and safely. Overstocking medications should be avoided, since this presents a much greater risk of theft. Personal property can include money in its various forms (cash, checks, credit, debit and
ATM cards, etc.) as well as jewelry, electronics, clothes and even furniture. Cash needs to be secured appropriately and accounts reconciled on a frequent, scheduled basis to make sure expenses are appropriate and balances are accurate. Larger, more expensive items like electronics and furniture should be inventoried (including serial and model numbers) and tracked to protect an individual’s property. To protect themselves, individuals need education regarding the risks of sharing information with strangers. Make sure that individuals know how to report a theft. Provide access to appropriate phone numbers to local law enforcement, County Board Service Facilitators and the hotline number. If you are connected with someone who has a disability
that you suspect is being taken advantage of, please call our agency’s abuse and neglect hotline at 513-794-3308. This hotline is open 24/7. For more information about protecting yourselves and your loved ones from fraud and scams, visit Commissioner Hartmann’s web site at http:// www.hamiltoncountyohio.gov/ fraud. Alice Pavey is superintendent of Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services, which is a Hamilton County government agency. More than 9,000 people with disabilities are annually served by the agency through a variety of educational, vocational, and other supports, as well as contracts with dozens of community non-profit providers.
Older Americans Month May was Older Americans Month and the perfect opportunity to express appreciation to seniors who have made, and continue to make, a significant difference in the lives of the people around them. It’s a time to recognize their achievements and contributions, while honoring the wisdom that older adults pass on to future generations. Like many, my life has been enriched by the collective wisdom of many seniors. When I was young, I used to ride my second-hand Schwinn bicycle, the kind with fat wheels and no gears, to my grandparents’ house several miles away. In my interactions with them - talking, listening to stories, playing games - I learned about life, family history and the values each so strongly believed in. My
grandparents weren’t the only seniors to impact my life, however. There have been other guides and Linda Eppler mentors along the way: COMMUNITY PRESS GUEST Aunts, uncles, COLUMNIST trusted friends, ministers and teachers. One Sunday school teacher taught me the importance of serving others, a value I have since passed along to my children and grandchildren. Older Americans Month was created in 1963 by President John F. Kennedy who, after a meeting with a group of senior citizens, felt the need to honor the service of older adults in communities
throughout our land. Not surprisingly, a great deal of the appreciation is directed to those older Americans who were actively involved in preserving our safety and freedom. And there are many. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, there are more than nine million men and women over the age of 65 today who are veterans of the armed forces of the United States. Finding one in Clermont County to thank for his or her service shouldn’t be difficult. At Clermont Senior Services, we are grateful for the commitment of older adults who show compassion for the needs of others.
Linda Eppler is the director of Community Services for Clermont Senior Services.
Rapid warmth could bring smog earlier Remember the haze that can linger over our city during the summer months? Well, guess what… it’s back! Smog, that is. Hot, muggy weather has rapidly approached the Tristate and smog has come with it. The month of May typically starts the smog season and so far the area has seen temperatures rise into the upper 80s and 90s. What could this mean for the rest of the summer? Smog is an air pollutant containing gases and other reactive chemicals that forms when sunlight “bakes” them. Smog is an irritating mixture of pollution that can make breathing difficult, especially for children, the elderly and people with respiratory problems. Smog consists of two different types of pollution, that both reside in Tristate area: ground level ozone and particulate matter (PM2.5). Ground level ozone is more prevalent because it is caused by vehicle exhaust, industrial emissions, gasoline vapors and
chemical solvents. PM2.5 does not need sunlight to create it. It appears as dust, ash or soot or in Loren Koehler liquid form like fog. Some COMMUNITY PRESS GUEST sources that COLUMNIST create PM2.5 include wood burning, diesel and gas-powered engines, and power plants. Now that you know what smog is, what can you do to prevent it? A great first step is by “Liking” the Do Your Share Facebook page. This is a good way to learn new tips, keep up to date on smog alerts, and see when and where events will occur to obtain additional information regarding improving the Tristate region’s air quality. Additional ideas that can assist in improving air quality include: » Walk, bike or rollerblade on short trips.

If carpooling or vanpooling is not feasible, individuals can park at one of the many Park & Ride lots around the Tristate area and take a bus.

Simplify: Homemade detergent, bread The more high tech I get in my professional life, the more low tech I want to be when I’m Rita home. Like Heikenfeld mowing the grass RITA’S KITCHEN around the herb garden with an oldfashioned reel mower. I love the sound that it makes and the fact that the only energy consumption it uses is mine. I decided to make my own dry laundry detergent too, just because I like the aroma and the fact that it takes so little to clean a full load of wash. Grandson Jack was my soap “sous chef” and helped stir up a batch.
Homemade laundry detergent
For the bar soap, traditionally this is made with
Fels Naptha for regular clothes or Ivory for delicates. Use your favorite bar soap as long as it has some cleaning power. The Fels Naptha has a distinctive aroma that smells clean. The Ivory has a slight sweet aroma. Sometimes I’ll add ½ cup clear vinegar instead of fabric softener, as well. Mix together: 1 bar finely grated soap (I used my hand grater at first and then the food processor) 1¼ cups borax 1¼ cups Arm & Hammer super washing soda (not baking soda)
In my washing machine, 2-3 tablespoons works for large loads. You may need more, or perhaps less.
Bonnie Kareth’s flavorful yeast bread Bonnie, a Northern
Bonnie Kareth's homemade bread is made with bread flour and whole wheat flour. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD
Kentucky reader, is one of those persons who, in her own quiet way, makes a big bang of a difference in people who are blessed enough to know her. Bonnie is not only an expert seamstress, she is one heck of a good cook and excellent baker. I can say this with conviction since I was the recent happy recipient of a warm loaf of Bonnie’s freshly baked bread, personally delivered to me while I was at Natorp’s Florence store helping folks with their herb questions. Here is her recipe for a healthier wheat bread, full of flavor and a toothsome texture. Makes 2 large loaves or 3 medium loaves 1 cup whole wheat flour (Bonnie uses Kroger) 7 to 7½ cups bread flour (Bonnie uses Gold Medal Better for Bread flour) 2 envelopes rapid rise yeast (Bonnie uses Fleischmann’s) 2½ teaspoons salt 1½ cups milk 1½ cups water ¼ cup molasses ¼ cup butter
In a large bowl, combine the 1 cup whole wheat flour, 2½ cups bread flour, yeast and salt. Stir gently with a spoon to blend. Pour milk, water, molasses and butter in a saucepan and heat to 120 to 130 degrees. Using an electric mixer on low speed, gradually add this liquid to the flour mixture. Beat 2 more minutes on low. Add an
additional 1 cup bread flour and beat an additional 2 minutes at medium speed. With spoon, stir in enough additional bread flour, scraping bowl occasionally, to make a soft dough. Turn out onto floured surface. Knead 8 to 9 minutes, adding additional bread flour until bread dough is smooth and elastic. Shape into large ball and cover with large buttered bowl; let rest for 10 minutes. Remove bowl and cut dough into 2 or 3 pieces, depending on how
About 30 to 35 minutes, if making 3 loaves When bread is done baking, turn out each loaf from bread pan onto a wire rack and allow to cool. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

Justice Department sues Instant Tax Service
The company that owns Instant Tax Service, and its founder, are under fire from federal authorities following more than 900 complaints from customers over the past three years. I have also received and reported on complaints about this company, which bills itself as the fourth largest tax preparation company in America. It claims to have hundreds of locations in 34 states, including here in the Tristate. Barbara Rice, of Goshen, visited one of those locations in February to have her taxes done. “They took my fees out of my state tax return so I got a $22 check. It was
written on something called Tax Tree. I waited about three weeks to cash it,” Rice said. Howard Tax Tree Ain is another HEY HOWARD! subsidiary of the corporation that owns Instant Tax Service. Rice says she was soon told there was a problem with its check. “So I went to my bank and they said my tax check had bounced. So the bank had taken the money out of my account and charged me $10 for the bounced check charge,” Rice said. Rice complained to
Instant Tax Service and said she was told it was her own fault for waiting to cash the check. She was told the check bounced because the company had switched banks in the weeks since the check was written. Rice says all this happened before April 15, when people were still filing their taxes. “I wouldn’t think I would be the only one this happened to. I just don’t know how you can stop processing checks through a bank in the middle of tax season,” she said. Rice eventually did get another check for her Ohio tax refund but she’s upset it did not include reimbursement for her
lent tax returns in order to maximize customer’s refunds so the firms could get larger fees directly from the customer’s refund checks. The lawsuit also says the firm has charged “outrageously high fees,” which it says are often not disclosed to customers. The firm is owned by Fesum Ogbazion, who started the business in Cincinnati back in 1994. Although I was unable to speak with Ogbazion, a company lawyer sent me a statement in response to my questions. The company disputes the allegations in the federal lawsuit saying it works hard to insure the independently owned franchises un-
bank’s bounced check fee. In addition, she says she’s been reluctant to cash it. There’s a phone number on the check to verify its authenticity but when she called she was told the company could not verify it. I’ve learned checks issued by Tax Tree had been returned in cities all over the country. I contacted Instant Tax Service and the company has now sent Rice a new refund check that includes the bounced check fee. But the United States Justice Department has filed suit seeking to close down the Dayton, Ohiobased Instant Tax Service. The suit says several franchisees filed fraudu-
derstand and comply with the law. The statement says the vast majority of about 200,000 tax returns were done correctly and in compliance with tax laws and regulations. “Instant Tax Service believes once more fact emerge and the entire matter is viewed in full contest, it will be clear that the company has not violated any laws or regulations,” the statement said.
