Mayor hopeful after meeting with Race reps

Committee says no decision has been made about future By Jeanne Houck

LOVELAND — Loveland Mayor Rob Weisgerber is trying to smooth over a dustup that has Loveland’s Amazing Race organizers threatening to take the charity games out of the city. Weisgerber said he met July 2 with several members of Loveland’s Amazing Race board and “we had a very open and positive conversation about plans to move forward.” “I expressed the city’s position of hoping to hold the Amazing Race in Loveland again next year,” Weisgerber said. “There are more conversations we will hold with the (Loveland’s Amazing Race board) defining a go-forward plan and the (Loveland’s Amazing Race board members) will need to discuss with their complete board before they make their final decision.” Doug Portmann, one of Love-

An unexpected and relatively brief, but damaging storm, knocked down tree limbs and wires across the area, and left many people without power June 29. A storm brought this tree down on Weber Road June 29, snapping wires and killing power to more than 600 residents in the immediate surrounding area according Duke.

land’s Amazing Race organizers, confirmed board members met with Weisgerber. “Nothing has been decided or set in stone yet,” Portmann said. Loveland’s Amazing Race organizers took offense after Loveland City Manager Tom Carroll sent an email June 6 – 10 days before this year’s race – to race organizer Martin Schickel saying race organizers would have to pay a $5,000 fee to Loveland for indirect costs that the city could no longer afford - primarily because of state budget cuts, but aggravated by Schickel’s “killing of the Loveland Station deal.” Loveland and Schickel have been unable to agree on a sale price for a building Schickel owns on South Second Street. It’s the last piece of property the city needs for Loveland Station, a retail-office-residential project planned for South Second Street and West Loveland Avenue. Loveland’s Amazing Race organizers paid the $5,000 fee, but Carroll returned it after race organizers agreed to pay liability insurance for their event, one of

City rethinks beetle stance Bethel officials go before council By Jeanne Houck

LOVELAND — Loveland City

Council is rethinking its call to remove all vulnerable trees in Asian longhorned beetle quarantine areas, which include Bethel and Tate Township. City council approved a resolution June 12 urging state and federal agencies to take down all possible host trees – as opposed to removing only those with known infestations – to ensure complete eradication of the beetles. It’s an action advocated by some forestry experts. But Loveland Mayor Rob Weisgerber recently referred the matter to the city’s Tree and Environment Committee for review

after hearing from Bethel residents opposed to the action. The committee is to make a recommendation to Loveland City Gunn Council at its Aug. 28 meeting. A portion of Loveland is in Clermont County, where Bethel and Tate Township are. Some people who want Loveland to reverse its stance showed up at a recent Loveland City Council meeting – including Donna Gunn, vice mayor of Bethel Village Council. Gunn said removing all trees susceptible to the Asian longhorned beetle in Bethel would amount to some 70 percent of the village’s trees. She ticked off a laundry list of calamities that would ensue, in-

cluding more flooding due to soil erosion and fewer trees absorbing water, streets and sidewalks falling apart because of moister soil, summer cooling bills rising and property values falling. “Real estate appraisers say that mature trees can add anywhere from 3 to 7 percent to the value of your property,” Gunn said.

Miami gives raises to non-union personnel 2-percent increases will cost $34K By John Seney

MIAMI TWP. — The township trustees awarded 2-percent pay raises for this year to employees not part of collective bargaining groups. The raises are retroactive to the first pay period of 2012. There are 32 township employees not part of the police or firefighter collective bargaining groups, Administrator Larry Fronk said. They include service, recreation and office workers. Fronk said when the 2012 township budget was approved in December 2011, a decision on

compensation for the non-bargaining employees had not been reached. “We were waiting to see what 2012 Fronk brought as far as revenues and expenses,” he said. Fronk said the cost of the aise for 2012 will be $34,000. “During a period when vacancies are not being filled and employees are given additional responsibilities, these employees should be recognized for their hard work,” Fronk said. Trustee Karl Schultz said it was a matter of fairness. “We just felt it was necessary to give our non-bargaining folks something,” Schultz said.

Music Academy sponsors pets for LIFE contest By Chuck Gibson

The Loveland Music Academy is sponsoring the “Most Adorable Pet” contest to benefit the Loveland Interfaith Effort Food Pantry in Loveland. Your vote helps stock the shelves. “Winter brings a lot of donations, but summer is rough for the LIFE food pantry,” said Linda HennBergholz, Loveland Music Academy managing partner. “They are running short on supplies to stock their shelves, so we’re having a fun contest where the “votes” are nonperishable items.” Here’s how it works. There are two categories: LMA faculty pets and LMA student pets. Faculty members and students at the academy had until June 25 to submit a photo of their most adored pet

for voting. Only the pet could be in the photo, no humans allowed. After the Henn-Bergholz original pet pictures came in, votes by the LMA faculty decided the top five or six “cutest” pets. “Ok, we all know that OUR pet is the cutest ever,” Henn-Bergholz said. “Now is your chance to have others verify that. The voting is the fun part.” Here’s how the public gets to vote and fill the shelves at the LIFE food pantry. There is a photo of each pet above a box in the entry stairwell to LMA on West Loveland Avenue in historic downtown Loveland. The public places their vote in the box. Each

Councilwoman Angie Settell made a motion at the June 26 Loveland City Council meeting to reprimand Carroll, saying he’d acted discourteously and unprofessionally. Councilman Brent Zuch countered with a motion to table it, saying some people who have long opposed Carroll were using the controversy to make political hay. Settell’s motion was tabled by a vote of 4 to 3. Carroll has since said the email he sent to Schickel contained hard financial truths but was poorly worded.

“I think it was not only wise but courageous for Loveland City Council to pass the resolution supporting aggressive approaches to (Asian longhorned beetles) eradication and urging your own residents to be on the lookout for the beetle,” said J. Bradford Bonham of Wyoming. Bonham said she is a green-industry professional who helps cities manage infestations of the Emerald ash borer, which has been found only in ash trees in North America. The Asian longhorned beetle is a threat to ash, maple, birch, horse chestnut, poplar, willow and elm trees, according to the Ohio Department of Agriculture. “Detection of likely infested trees is at best, imperfect,” Bonham said. “Efficacy of insecticides is at best, imperfect. “Because of the cryptic way this pest infests trees and leads to limb failure, property damage, human injuries and death will all increase with storms even storms of low intensity. “The longer an infestation remains active, the greater the risk the pest will escape the regulated area and start a satellite infestation,” Bonham said.

Meanwhile, Portmann said Loveland’s Amazing Race organizers are calculating how much money they raised for charities this year. “We are still not sure about how much we will be giving out to the charities yet because all the expenses for the race are not paid yet,” Portmann said.

Kids bring 'Carnival’ to the Loveland stage

The “Carnival” takes the stage at Loveland Stage Company Theater Wednesday, July 11. The Children’s Summer Theater Workshop production features kids from all around Loveland in five performances of a classic circus story. “Here we are again, part two,” said Glenna Knapp, who is directing her second show with LSC. “We have 48 kids between 10 and 18 in the show. Carnival is an upbeat show about a circus coming into town. Everybody in the cast is a roustabout or performer.” The story is a 1961 musical that follows a young girl who encounters a whole cast of circus performers while searching for her place in life. “I try to do shows that haven’t been done for a while,” Knapp said. “We build the set on stage and then we take it down at the end.” Mackenzie Mahon, 16, is in her second performance with LSC, but cast in her first lead role as Lili. In the show, Lili is also a 16-yearold girl who ends up with the circus after her parents die. She meets a lot of exciting, very interesting and different characters including clowns, a puppeteer, gymnasts and Marco the Magnificent. “I was really excited when I heard I got this part,” Mahon said. “It’s always really fun doing summer theater. I guess I never thought it would be me getting the lead part in a mu-

There are also some serious parts to her. She’s not going to be a shallow character. There’s going to be more to her.” Daniel Osona, 13, attends SCPA and is also auditioning for “Christmas Carol” at Playhouse in the Park. He plays Marco the Magnificent and tries to lure Lili. “He’s the greatest magician of all time and he’s also a very big seducer,” Osona

said. “I try to get Lili to be with me. I do some magic tricks for her. I love this show.” The stage truly becomes a carnival atmosphere with sideshows, the midway, cotton candy, balloons, and the strong man. “It’s just a light-hearted old time circus,” Knapp said. “It should be fun.” The stage gradually fills up with all the acts including the strong man, the Siamese twins, and clowns,

lots of clowns. The air fills with the sounds of the circus and good music. A couple of the clowns are played by 10-year-olds Calvert Collins and Matt Rychlik. While Rychlik has been on the Loveland stage before, Collins is making his first appearance. “It has been really fun,” Collins said. “I’m a clown so I’ve been getting to walk on the stilts. Juggling, tossing spinning plates and practicing walking on the stilts has been fun, but Collins also likes the clown costume. He thinks the audience will enjoy the juggling and stiltwalking. Rychlik has been in “Music Man” and “The Mikado” and ranks his experience on this show right in the middle. “I do just juggling,” Rychlik said. “The best part is all the acts. The audience will like everything.” Jack Shultz, 9, stole many a heart as the little boy in Loveland Stage Company’s production of “Miss Saigon” in 2009. He comes back as the strong man for “Carnival.” The muscle man costume is “a little weird,” but he likes the barbell part of his act. “They said I can balance

it on one finger, throw it in the air and catch it,” Shultz said. “It’s really cool and really fun to do. All this show is really fun. It’s been really fun to know the other kids and be good friends with them now.” “Carnival” is a whole new cast and different people for Molly Shilling, 13, who appeared in “The Mikado” with LSC last summer. She came back this year because she loves the music and it was so much fun last year. This year she plays a gypsy harem girl and helps put up the circus on stage. “It is really fun but challenging,” Shilling said. “You can’t just doze off because you can forget to put up a tent or a booth or something. The music and dancing is the most fun. I think the audience will like the characters and the personalities.” The summer theater workshop is produced by Ginger Kroncke and Alice Culbertson with musical direction by Jack Hasty and choreography by Marjory Clegg. The student director is Suzy Culbertson and the cast is all kids. “Glenna is a great director and she’s been guiding

LOVELAND — They call it the rock pile, and it doesn’t officially open until 8:30 every morning. Yet the staff at Coldstream Country Club makes sure to have balls on the driving range for early risers. Frequently among them is member Bill Williamson – a 1995 Loveland High School grad and Anderson Township resident – who often practices before heading to work as an attorney at the downtown firm Strauss Troy. From the rock pile to a course PGA head professional Bill Schuetz described as “brick” in a hot, dry tournament, Williamson won the 103rd Tony Blom Metropolitan Amateur Championship June 27 to 30 at Summit Hills Country Club.

Williamson, 35, edged University of Cincinnati golfer David Tepe 1-up in the finals. He is the first Coldstream golfer to win the Met since Wes Homan took the title in 2006. “It feels great,” he said, admiring the silver bowl trophy he won for his efforts. “There are going to be a lot of memories from this week.” Not least among them will be the thought of his 65-year-old father, Chuck, as his caddy. “It’s so special to have him on the bag for ever how many holes I played this week,” Williamson said. “Having him here, my mom, my wife, my daughter, it’s a team effort. They all sacrificed so I could play this week.” Williamson chatted with his coach Sonny Rinala on the eve of the finals looking for a way to get his putting in order.

“I really hadn’t been putting very well early in the week and was beating people with good ball striking,” he said. “He gave me a few thoughts, more than anything mechanical, and it really helped.” Trailing Tepe by a hole - the first time he was down the entire tournament - after nine, Williamson got up and down from short of the green on the par-three 10th to halve the hole and drained a 20foot sidehill birdie putt on the 11th to level the match. He made birdie on the 12th, but Tepe had an eagle to retake the lead. Williamson drew even again at the 14th, leaving his birdie putt inches short for a tap-in par, while Tepe’s par attempt lipped out. The decisive blow came on the 15th as Williamson dropped an 18-footer for birdie to regain a lead he never relinquished as the players halved the final three holes. “I couldn’t wait for him to

make a mistake,” Williamson said. “I had to be aggressive and I knew it would take birdies to win holes. I had a similar putt (in the semifinal) and used that tip to help me get relaxed and make a good putt.” Williamson reached match play with rounds of 72 at Hyde Park Country Club and 74 at Summit Hills, good for a 13th-place tie in the stroke-play qualifier. (Tepe was medalist with a 69-69-138 in qualifying.) In match play Williamson beat Ryan Denney 6-and-5, Derek Gustofson 6-and-5, Joe Kastelic 2-up and Blake Hamilton 5-and-4 to reach the semifinals, where he beat defending state amateur champion Korey Ward 1-up. “It’s such a grueling test,” Williamson said. “It’s a lot of golf in a week – eight rounds in six days and a lot of really good competition. It feels good to win.”

SPORTS BRIEFS Mackey goes national

Mount Notre Dame’s lacrosse coach Russell Mackey was named one of eight coaches nationally to coach the 2012 All-American Champion Showcase Lacrosse team. The 2012 Champion AllAmerican Showcase is a U.S. Lacrosse high school all-star event featuring nearly 200 of the nation’s top players. This event will be showcased on ESPN July 22-27 as a part of the ESPNHS Games and is taking place at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. U.S. Lacrosse fielded a large pool of applicants from coach-

es around the country. Mackey of Mount Notre Dame is one of eight coaches chosen; he is the only coach from the city of Cincinnati and from the state of Ohio. This opportunity to coach some of our nation’s elite high school student-athletes is a great compliment to Mackey’s talents and abilities. He will be joined with coaches from Arizona, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Massachusetts and Florida to coach the girl’s division. The girl’s showcase takes place July 22-24, 2012 and the championship game will be streamed on

Buse on his game Loveland resident makes name for himself at UD By Scott Springer

Matt Farrell, a fifth-grader at Loveland Intermediate School, participated in the May 12 AAU Kentucky District Taekwondo Championship, Independence, Ky. He received third place for poomse (forms) and second place for sparring. In sparring, he was put in the next age bracket, with other children who were two years older. He is now eligible to compete in the AAU Junior Olympics this summer in Houston, Texas, and wants to add another gold medal to his collection. THANKS TO MARK FARRELL

LOVELAND — As both a Bomber and a Flyer, Matt Buse’s flight plans have been exceptional. The Loveland golfer made St. Xavier’s varsity as a sophomore and eventually was part of a state championship team. Now, with St. X teammate Sean Keating joining him at the University of Dayton, Buse has continued to put the white sphere in orbit with a tendency of landing it in the short grass. The finance and economics major is interning this summer for Westminster Financial in Vandalia and is shocked his final collegiate season is already creeping up on him. “Unbelievable!” Buse said. “Literally a blink of an eye and you’re going to senior year.” If it’s anything like his junior year, life will be all “fairways and greens” for Buse. With five consecutive semesters on the Dean’s List, his grade point average is at 3.85, making him academic all-conference in the Atlantic 10. This all comes after he was named Atlantic 10 All-

Conference shortly after tying for third in the conference championship in May. “I shot 72 the first round and 68 the second round and the third round got rained out,” Buse said. “We were at Heron Bay Golf Club. I love going down to Florida. I’ve always played well down there.” In 2011-12, Buse tied for the team lead in rounds played and was fourth in stroke average with a 75. The 68 in the conference tournament was a career-best. Only two other Flyers have earned all-conference academically and athletically in the same season. Buse credits his focus in both areas with his background at St. Xavier. “St. X is like a college campus in and of itself,” Buse said. “It was definitely good preparation for what I do up here at UD. All the classes that we missed at St. X and UD are pretty similar. We’d leave at 2 o’clock to go play a match and wouldn’t get home ‘til 10. St. X is a pretty difficult school and it was really good training.” He’s also been blessed to have a common teammate in Keating

for some time. Both were on the Bombers 2008 title team and will serve as captains next season at Dayton. “I’ve been with him for eight years now,” Buse said. “We’re roommates. It’s really cool.” Buse started to have an interest in golf shortly after Tiger Woods won the Masters for the first time in 1997. At age 7, it wasn’t long before he was playing in competitive affairs. “I got in tournaments and I figured out the more I practiced, the better I got,” Buse said. “All of a sudden, here I am playing in college.” He grew up playing at Oasis Golf Club in Loveland and now takes his hacks at the Sycamore Creek club in the Springboro/ Centerville area. He describes his game in one word. “Consistent,” Buse said. “I have a really good all-around game. Tee to green has become a lot better since I came to UD. I was known for my short game before I came. My putting was really good this year.” The season begins for Buse, Keating and the Flyers Sept. 10 at the Marshall Invitational.



Long-term energy policy would spur jobs leum Reserve. There is great potential to develop our own domestic energy sources on federal lands, but we keep getting in Jean Schmidt COMMUNITY PRESS our own way. The federal GUEST COLUMNIST government is making it more difficult to tap the sources of energy. Once those sources are available, the government throws up road blocks to bringing that energy to consumers. The House of Representatives considered the Domestic Energy and Jobs Act that seeks to harness our domestic energy resources. It also would help put Americans back to work, lower gas prices over the long

term, and reduce our dependence on foreign sources of oil. More specifically, this bill seeks to stop the Obama administration from hindering domestic oil and natural gas production on federal lands – while cutting bureaucratic red tape and streamlining the federal permitting process. It also would require the federal government to set longer-term production goals – using an “all of the above” approach to meeting our nation’s energy needs. It would make the Environmental Protection Agency consider the effects of its rules and regulations on domestic energy consumers. Jean Schmidt is the U.S. Representative in Ohio’s 2nd Congressional District. Her local office number is 513-791-0381.

Elections: Coming together or drifting apart? When I moved to this country as a resident, and afterwards, when I became a U.S. citizen, I am always struck by the elections and our beliefs about democracy. They are so different from anywhere else in the world. I am talking specifically about the exclusively American saying of “never discuss religion or politics in polite company.” Let’s leave religion out of this for now. Too many wars have been fought about man’s interpretation of the unimaginable. But what about politics? If there is some discomfort about discussing my political beliefs with my neighbor, then there is an assumption that something’s wrong with these beliefs – yours or mine. We must lose this silly notion that we cannot discuss our political beliefs with each other. If you don’t agree with me, then be secure enough to discuss your ideas. What are we afraid of? That we may actually change our views? Are we afraid of listening to someone and being convinced they are right? Why can’t we, as citizens, have civil discourse? Isn’t free-

dom of speech one of our greatest values? So why the stigma? After many years of thought, I have Bruce Healey reached a few COMMUNITY PRESS conclusions: GUEST COLUMNIST A, Too many people do not know enough to support their own beliefs. They have a wafer thin veneer of middle school civics knowledge, that has festered unchallenged and unchanged since seventh-grade, and they feel threatened if anyone challenges them to find out why they believe the things they do. B, Some people feel threatened rather than invigorated by having a neighbor that shares different beliefs. This lack of diversity in thought so cherished by many democratic societies is not encouraged in many communities in America. If you don’t believe me, go to Alabama and say you believe in socialist democracy (as in Sweden), or go to a Massachusetts and expound the virtues of right-wing conservative values. C, We believe, wrongly, that

It has become an annual ritual. Each summer, gas prices spike – further burdening American families and causing outrage across the United States. President Obama says there is no “magic wand” that will bring oil prices down – and that we need to discuss long-term energy strategies. Instead, we usually resort to a short-term gimmick, like opening the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Today, the national average cost of a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is around $3.40. Some 13 million Americans are out of work. Establishing a long-term energy plan can help change all of those numbers for the better. The fact is that our nation has far more untapped oil than what is in the Strategic Petro-


we have the best and most advanced political system in the world. Depending on the aspect you are discussing, we don’t, though it is pretty good. There are other countries that do some things better than we do in this arena. Electronic voting and curbs on lobbying come to mind, as well as electoral processes that promote “one person, one vote,: rather than an electoral college dating from the days of the Pony Express. Now we are approaching an election. I challenge you to read up on the election from many sources. Form an opinion. And for heaven’s sake, discuss it with those around you. You may learn something. You may convince someone else – or maybe even yourself - that you are right. This nation was born because people discussed their ideas. If the Fathers of the American Revolution had declined to discuss politics with their friends and neighbors, we would have celebrated the Queen’s jubilee as British subjects a few weeks ago.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR City apologizes for parade confusion

Each year, residents from all around Loveland come together on the Fourth of July to celebrate America’s Independence Day. There are several traditions in Loveland that make the celebration a great event, and one of the more important ones is the Fourth of July parade. Unfortunately, the ending route of the parade deviated from tradition this year as a result of a coordination error, and some spectators along the traditional parade route therefore did not get a chance to see this year’s parade. On behalf of the city, I would like to apologize to those residents and visitors who waited between Karl Brown Way and Second Street along West Loveland Avenue for the parade. I especially apologies to the kids who braved the heat, but missed the parade all the same. Historically, the parade route advances from the Loveland Elementary School to West Loveland Avenue, then east on West Loveland Avenue to Karl Brown Way. While the parade officially ends at Karl Brown, the parade participants traditionally continue on to Second Street, providing visitors in the historic district an opportunity to see the parade too. Due to failed communication, the route made an abrupt turn on Karl Brown Way and bypassed that section of West Loveland Avenue, leaving people in that area without a chance to view the parade. By the time the error was communicated, it was too late to reroute the parade for con-

cern of the safety of those who had approached the corner of West Loveland Avenue and Karl Brown Way to see the parade. It is possible that this will be the last Fourth of July event in Loveland because of budget constraints, and I regret that for some, the parade this year ended on a sour note. Should the Loveland Fourth of July celebration continue in the future, the city will take additional steps to ensure that the parade route will follow tradition and make sure that all who come to celebrate the Fourth of July have a safe and rewarding experience.

Five ways to make travel safer for seniors

Some senior friends of ours were headed overseas a few years ago and had taken care to protect themselves against tourist crimes. In fact, Bob purchased a special coat loaded with theft proof features, including zippered pockets to secure his passport and wallet. After visiting a cathedral near Paris, Bob tossed his coat in the back seat of the rental car and they headed for the city. While at a stoplight, someone opened the back door of his car, reached in, and snatched his $200 stateof-the-art “anti-theft” jacket.

For all his care, Bob had forgotten to lock the doors. Travel is a great joy for people of all ages, but care must be taken to insure that travel is safe and satisfying. This is especially important for senior travelers. According to the Travelers Insurance Review, one in five personal crimes against traveling seniors is theft. While travel theft is a concern, it’s not the only one for seniors traveling in the states and abroad. But don’t let it overwhelm you. Instead, plan for it. Here are five tips to keep in mind.



A publication of

One of the easiest ways to protect against pickpockets is to purchase a money belt and a small zippered wallet. The money belt Linda fits under your Eppler CARING & SHARING shirt or blouse and keeps credit cards and larger bills out of prying hands. In the wallet, carry only the money you will need for that day’s cash purchases. If you pocket is picked,

you won’t lose that much. Secondly, let family members or friends know your travel plans. Before every trip, my husband prepares a detailed itinerary of where we will be, when we will be there and how to contact us in an emergency. It enables family to check up on us if they don’t hear from us for a few days. Next, with the exception of two or three key credit cards, leave the rest of your cards at home. Keep the ones you take in your money belt. Also, leave the “bling” at home, too. Since valu-

ables are what thieves are after, carrying as little jewelry as possible is essential. Sometimes it doesn’t pay to advertise. Carry back-up photocopies of important papers. Although Bob lost his coat, passport and wallet, he was able to get it all restored quickly because he had back-up photocopies in his locked suitcase at his hotel. Lastly, carry a small journal with all your key numbers in it for quick reference, if needed.

Jam, poached peaches good summer recipes

Sugar-free berry jam I like strawberries but use your favorite berry and coordinating gelatin. Last time I made this I added lemon juice and it gave it a nice zing.

2 cups berries 1 cup cold water 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice 3 oz. sugar-free berry gelatin

Crush berries in saucepan. Add water, juice and gelatin and mix. Over medium heat, bring to boiling, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and simmer a couple of minutes. Pour into jars, cool and cap. Store in refriger-

Rita shares a reader's recipe for using all those summer peaches. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD ator for two weeks or frozen two months.

¾ cup bourbon

Greyhound Tavern’s house dressing ingredients Susan B. really wanted this recipe, and I know the recipe is proprietary, as it is hugely popular for this northern Kentucky restaurant. So no, I don’t have the recipe, but here’s the ingredients (and I can’t tell you how I came to know), so let’s see if one of our readers can figure this out: seedless cucumbers, green onions, mayo, sour cream, sugar, white pepper, garlic, salt and chopped carrot.

Pat’s bourbon poached peaches

I’ve had this in my files for a long time and, with local peaches coming in, it’s a good one to share. From Pat Kellison, who said: “I have made a lot of peach recipes, but none comes near this one for over-the-top deliciousness.” Pat serves it over peach ice cream. 4 lbs. peaches 2½ cups sugar 1 vanilla bean, split 4 cups water

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile, prepare an ice water bath. Cut a small X into bottom of each peach. Boil peaches for 1 minute. Transfer to ice water bath. Let cool slightly. Peel, pit and cut into ¾-inch wedges. Bring water, sugar and vanilla to boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Add peaches and bourbon. Simmer until peaches are tender, but still hold their shape, 5-7 minutes. Transfer to large bowl using slotted spoon. Cook syrup over medium heat until reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Discard vanilla pod. Pour syrup over peaches. Let cool completely. Divide among sterilized jars. Pour syrup over tops. Seal jars and refrigerate until ready to use, up to one month. Extra syrup can be frozen.

Simple roasted carrots

Our farmer friends Bob and Bert Villing, who live down the road, just canned over 20 pints of carrots from their garden. As for me, I grow just enough for the kids to enjoy pulling up. That translates into

carrots for several dinners, but not near enough to preserve. Here’s an easy way to roast carrots in the oven, not the prettiest kid on the block, but so delicious. Carrots are chock full of beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in the body and is good for our eyes. Carrots may help lower cholesterol, prevent heart attacks and certain cancers. In order to make the beta-carotene do all these good things, carrots need a little fat. So I rub them with olive oil before roasting. Carrots, peeled only if necessary Olive oil Sea salt Freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Rub with olive oil and season to taste. Lay in single layer on sprayed cookie sheet. Roast until tender and slightly wrin-

I’ve always said I’ll take hot weather over cold, but this week may make me change my mind. It’s 103 degrees outside. I’m making sun-cooked strawberry preserves and strawberry rollups, which usually take up to Rita four days to Heikenfeld “cook” in the sun. I’m RITA’S KITCHEN thinking two days will do it. I’ll share those recipes soon. Meanwhile, stay hydrated. Make sure kids and older folks drink plenty of water. Kids’ bodies take longer to adjust to heat and humidity. They produce more body heat and don’t sweat as much as adults do at the same exertion level. So in hot weather, kids are at increased risk for dehydration.
