BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Sidewalks to connect library, school By Leah Fightmaster

lfightmaster@communitypress.com

Symmes Elementary School students and library visitors could soon have a sidewalk to walk on. Sidewalks for Enyart Road are included in Symmes Township’s sidewalk plan, which was adopted last year.

The proposed sidewalks will run from Montgomery Road, about 737 feet down the street to connect the elementary and library branch. Before construction can begin, township Administrator Brian Elliff will have to get permission from the school and the library to install them on their property, Elliff said.

“We want to make sure they’re comfortable with (sidewalks),” he said. Elliff added that if both parties agree to allow the sidewalks on their property, construction on them could begin as early as this fall, because little planning and engineering would be needed. He said that preliminary costs

show the project could cost about $25,000, which would come out of a budget that is set aside for building sidewalks throughout the township. When discussions about where sidewalks should be built this year happened earlier, building them on Enyart was a priority because not

only does it provide safe walking access for students and library patrons, but it also connects to the sidewalks on the west side of Montgomery Road by crosswalk, Elliff said. Want more updates for Symmes Township? Follow Leah Fightmaster on Twitter: @LCFightmaster.

Loveland Schools preparing for state-mandated changes New law changes extracurricular rules, levy cost to taxpayers By Jason Hoffman jhoffman@communitypress.com

LOVELAND — The Loveland City School District Board of Trustees is preparing to adapt to public school changes signed into law by Gov. John Kasich for Ohio’s biannual budget. Loveland Superintendent Chad Hilliker presented a

“short version” outline of the budget’s impact on education to the board at its Tuesday meeting. At the forefront, Hilliker Hilliker said, is the extracurricular-activity requirement placed on all public schools. “The issue on the front burner is extracurricular-activity participation,” Hilliker said. “Home-schooled students can participate in activities beginning Sept. 29 and private school students can participate if their

school doesn’t offer a similar program.” Challenges for the district will be monitoring academic eligibility since the athletes wouldn’t be attending Loveland schools, Hilliker said, and the the board will have to make a new policy adhering to the new law. Loveland’s attorneys are trying to decipher exactly what they mean for the district, he said. “I try to look at what the impact is on us,” Hilliker said. “The state is looking out for its interests.” Although Loveland won’t have a levy on the November

ballot, Hilliker said it’s likely the district will ask voters for one in May. That levy will come with additional cost to taxpayers because of provisions in the new budget. “It’s going to make passing a levy more challenging, I don’t think there’s any doubt,” said Tom Ash, government relations director with the Buckeye Association of School Administrators. “When districts with November ballot issues answer what it’s going to cost, that cost will be about 14 percent higher than it was in May.” The increase will only affect new levies, Ash said, not renew-

als that will retain the tax exemption referred to as rollback. The BASA is a nonrprofit formed in 1959 and has about 1,000 members including more than 97 percent of Ohio public school superintendents. Public school districts won’t know exactly how much funding the state will provide until enrollment is tallied using October attendance, but Hilliker said it’s important the district plan ahead.

Miami Twp. officials hire interim fire chief By Keith BieryGolick kbierygolick@communitypress.com

MIAMI TWP. — Township officials hired an interim fire chief today.

The contract has not been finalized, but Brooks is expected to start Aug. 5 and work until the end of October, Fronk said. “It doesn’t surprise me,” said Miami Township Fire Chief Jim Whit-

Cee Cee Collins, president for the Loveland Chamber of Commerce, said the progress Amp makes with vehicles is a benefit to small business in and around Loveland.

Loveland family excited with opera roles By Jason Hoffman jhoffman@communitypress.com

LOVELAND — For Pia, Anjali and Shonali AlmBasu, working as part of the cast of “Aida” is more than a chance to be on stage. “This is just one of the most fun things to do,” Pia said. “It’s so enjoyable and amazing to see the production from the inside all the way from beginning rehearsals to opening night.” All three of the Loveland residents are filling roles as supernumeraries – similar to extras in movies – and have enjoyed every part of the process. “Supers will share the stage with internationally-renowned artists and work with celebrated directors and conductors,” said Kaitlin King, public relations intern with the Cincinnati Opera, in an email. “Supers are required to attend approximately 10 to 15 rehearsals. No experience is necessary and all super positions are filled on a voluntary basis.”

The volunteer roles in the Cincinnati Opera aren’t just a hobby – Anjali has a fine arts degree from the University of Cincinnati college of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning and Shonali will be attending the UC College-Conservatory of Music to pursue a degree in theatrical design and production. “I’m on a big riser so I have a pretty good view or what’s going on,” Anjali said. “There is a hawk

brought in from the zoo and I have a perfect view of her coming in – it’s very regal.” When the opera finishes, Pia, Anjali and Shonali all say they hope to considered for supernumerary roles in the future. “We get treated to some of the best music in the opera and we’re in the most fantastical scene,” Shonali said. “It’s wonderful.”

LECC principal spends summer on learning expedition Loveland Early Childhood Center Principal Kyle Bush turned student this summer; Miami University selected the seasoned district administrator to participate in an exclusive learning opportunity: Earth Expeditions. Earth Expeditions is a global conservation and education program supporting university courses, degree programs and collaborative projects in Africa, Asia, Australia, and the Americas. Bush traveled to Queensland, Australia, for 11 days this summer as part of the seven-credit, graduate-level science course and will be stationed out of the Reef HQ Aquarium, which is Australia’s National Education Centre for the Great Barrier Reef. “This is an unparalleled hands-on learning opportunity,” Bush said. “Not to mention an opportunity for purposeful travel to one of the world’s ecological wonders.” According to the program website, course themes include: » coral reef ecology; » conservation of marine and coastal systems; » design of public research exhibits; » inquiry-driven learning;

» communitybased conservation and participatory education. “From an educator’s perspective, my hope is to bring back some ways that we Bush might connect some of what I learn for our students,” Bush said. “The paper that I am working on right now, which I will present to my classmates on the first day we all meet in Australia, is on the topic of inquiry and participatory education with a particular focus on implications in an early childhood setting. “This course is also the first time I have had the experience of being fully submersed in an online course environment. What I have already learned about the different expectations for communication and the methods of interacting with one’s far-away classmates really helps me to see the great potential, as well as some of the challenges, of learning this way. For that experience alone, this is already proving to be worthwhile.” To learn more about the Earth Expeditions program visit www.earthexpeditions.org.

CHCA continues to broaden international student program By Leah Fightmaster lfightmaster@communitypress.com

Many foreign students study abroad in high school for a year or two as exchange students. At Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy, most stay for its entirety. When Dean Nicholas, principal of CHCA’s Martha S. Lindner High School, 11525 Snider Road, took his job in 2007, three students from Korea who attended a public school for a year wanted to stay and finish their high school years at CHCA. He got to know those students, and felt that bringing in more as part of a program would be beneficial for the students and staff alike. The school began working with agencies, which would connect interested students with staff members. Nicholas began to build relationships with people in mostly Asian countries, where students are looking for ways to get into American universities and believe attending high school in the United States will give them a better chance, he said. It started from there – the school’s program began by chance with three students and evolved into a group of 36 students from11countries in Asia, Europe, South America and Africa. Nicholas said that because of the service work and mission trips that students are required to participate in while attending CHCA, they had the mindset that these students were people they needed to help. He wanted to change that slightly. “One of the things that pushed me is that I saw the mindset in kids that these are people who we needed to help,” he said. “But these people are our classmates, collaborators, bosses, teammates and coworkers. I wanted to change that mindset ... and I wanted them to get a realistic picture of the world.” CHCA is admitting its own international students without agencies, helping match host families and integrating them into the community. Admissions counselor Kim Vincent said many students who come to the school from other coun-

tries hear about their program by word of mouth. Students want the “full American student experience,” where they learn not only how to be responsible for themselves but their interests and passions. Yujin Cho, an alumna of CHCA from Korea, said her favorite part about attending school in the United States was that she could choose which classes she wanted to take and what extra-curricular activities she wanted to participate in. She added that in Korea, students attend school all day and evening, take the same classes as everyone else and have little to no free time to explore their interests. As a student here, Cho began learning to play musical instruments in her free time, and discovered that science is something she wanted to pursue as a career. After attending Baylor University in Texas for a year, she moved back to Korea and is taking time off from school while working as a researcher for Samsung. “I like a lot of different things, and I think I’m good at them, but choosing the option of becoming a scientist happened at CHCA,” she said. Senior Silk Kim's newly found independence allowed her to branch out and explore what she loves and grow into a leader. Before coming to the United States, Kim had an interest in human rights. When she got here, she dove into doing service work as part of Student Organized Service, or SOS, groups, becoming a group leader for Kids Care Club, where students work with kids on service projects on campus. She also participated in the mock United Nations program and saw what it was like to deal with human rights issues as a country. Next year, she’ll attend Washington University in St. Louis. Kim said that although her new independence was a challenge because it wasn’t something she was accustomed to, she was able to challenge herself and found a lot of support to back her. “I’ve met a lot of people who have supported me, and now I feel like I could do anything with no fear,” she said. “I feel

very respected.” For Che Li, a senior from China, the biggest challenge was the language barrier. He came to CHCA knowing very little English, and some wondered whether he could pick up the language quick enough to start classes. By the end of that year, he’d won an award for his English class, Nicholas said. Although he said learning the language was a challenge and that many times he was homesick, his friends and teachers were welcoming and motivating. Li said his English classes have not only made him a better English speaker, but improved his grammar and developed important critical thinking skills that will take him to the University of Waterloo in Canada. “The overall environment at CHCA is friendly and open,” he said. “The diversity and culture is open, and I feel well respected by my teachers and peers.” Benjamin Reaño, a senior from Colombia, only attended CHCA this year but said the lessons he’s learned before college here have made an impact. Not only has he learned practical lessons about managing money and being responsible for himself, but he’s also been able to connect with his faith. Reaño said that being at CHCA has prepared him for things he might experience outside of the school, such as dealing with peer pressure. Weekly chapel attendance and the religious emphasis helped develop his faith and led him to study next year at Cincinnati Christian University. “For me as a Christian, it’s been really good to be at this school. CHCA will always have people, including students, who will help you with (peer) pressure,” he said. “If you want to try, There are a lot of groups (at CHCA) who can help you with your spiritual life.” Nicholas said he's always wanted a diverse student body. As CHCA continues to grow its international student program, that aspiration will continue. Want more updates for Symmes Township? Follow Leah Fightmaster on Twitter: @LCFightmaster.

Loveland boys have solid returning core By Scott Springer

LOVELAND — With preview games in the books, the following is a rundown on boys high school soccer teams in the Loveland Herald coverage area:

Loveland

The Tigers finished second in their first Eastern Cincinnati Conference season behind Walnut Hills. Loveland was 125-1 overall (5-1 ECC) and coach Mike Dunlap earned Coach of the Year honors. However, gone to graduation are ECC Player of the Year Jonny Williams and Marty Bixler, the top two scorers in the league. The Tigers lost several others from a talented 20122013 class. Returning for Loveland are seniors Greg Bohn, Matt Vogt, Ethan Conte and Brad Faust, plus juniors Ryan Melink and Conner Wagner. Bohn was second team ECC last year, with Vogt making honorable mention. “We have a solid core returning this year,” Dunlap said. “This team will be very hard working. I like the fact they are playing together as a team.” The Tigers start the season at home against St. Xavier on Aug. 17.

CHCA

The Eagles posted a 4-9-4 record in 2012, including a 2-2-3 mark in the MVC good for fifth place in the league. First team all-MVC pick Colin Kenney graduated, but CHCA returns juniors Landon and Luke Hardwick, both of whom were second team allleague selections as sophomores. Landon scored nine goals for the Eagles last year, while Luke chipped in a pair of assists. Tom Jester and Chris Zhang should provide senior leadership.

Moeller Veteran Moeller coach Randy Hurley is back for year 26 with the Crusaders. Moeller’s had five straight winning seasons and were 11-8-1 (3-4 Greater Catholic League South) in 2012. They last won the GCLSouth in 2010. The Crusaders return six

starters including seniors Henry Myers, Zach Bonn, Mark Lacey, Mark Bugada, and Tyler Himes. Myers was secondteam GCL-South as a junior and is considered a potential Division I prospect. Moeller starts off the 2013 campaign with a home game against Walnut Hills on Aug. 22.

The Lady Tigers finished 2012 in a four-way tie for second in the Eastern Cincinnati Conference’s first year at 3-3 and were 11-8 overall. Under coach Todd Kelly they have had winning seasons 12 of the last 14 years. They return six starters from last year’s squad including seniors Sydney Dudley, Anne Lehman, Justine Perl, Anna Niemeyer and Maddy Jones. Dudley committed to Ohio State as a sophomore. “Sydney is very quick and has outstanding foot skills,” Kelly said of his midfielder. “She is an exceptional distributor of the ball and a great attacker off the dribble. She has excellent knowledge of the game. She’s started every game the last three seasons and barring injury will start and play in more games than any other player in Loveland history.” Dudley was ECC Player of the Year and second-team AllState, while defender Lehman was second-team ECC and is a three-time All-Southwest Ohio and All-Conference Academic selection. Juniors Corynne Swift and Haleigh Goedde are also returning starters. Swift was second team ECC and is a college prospect like Goedde. Defender Goedde will move to center back this season. “She is a physically strong player and is good at taking balls out of the air,” Kelly said of the third-year player. Loveland should also benefit from the return of sophomore defender Hannah Fischer and freshman Rachel Ernst. Ernst will play outside back and is viewed as a player to watch in Southwest Ohio for years to come. “After making it to the district finals in 2012, only to fall just short of a championship, expectations are high this season to return,” Kelly said. “While possessing a nice mix of talent and experience, we will need to pull that all together as well as develop the mental toughness necessary to reach the type of success we expect in the program.” The Lady Tigers will try to integrate 12 returners with some new talent. The injury bug has bitten Loveland in recent seasons, but they’ve been relatively healthy during the preseason. Loveland begins with road games Aug. 19 at McNicholas and Aug. 22 against Lakota West. They return for the home opener on Aug. 24 against Mason.

CHCA

Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy went 8-8-2 last season, including a 3-3 record in the Miami Valley Conference good for fourth place. Junior Katie Koopman was one of the top 20 scorers in the MVC as a sophomore and should help spark the Eagles offense.

Mount Notre Dame

Despite a 13-3-1 overall record in 2012, coach Doug Con-

way’s MND Lady Cougars were fourth in the GGCL-Scarlet at 2-2-1. Still, they’ve had a winning season in every season Conway’s been in command and look to be a factor in the renamed Girls Greater Catholic League. Though standout Rose Lavelle is gone to graduation and Wisconsin, MND returns five starters and four college commits. Junior goalkeeper Sam Leshnak was a U17 World National Team member and will be playing for North Carolina. Senior Maddie Volz will play for Anderson University in South Leshnak Carolina, senior Amy Dean is going to Akron and senior Kelly Hinkle is going to Charleston Southern. Hinkle was GGCL-Scarlet second team last season. Other possible commitments could come in the future with senior Maria Veneziano and several juniors. In addition, Conway is high on freshman forward/goalkeeper Jenna Prathapa. “We have a very athletic and seasoned team with a good mix of upperclassmen,” Conway said. “It’s the best freshman class I have ever seen and should impact the team moving forward. We should be good for years to come.” Mount Notre Dame starts the season at Mason Aug. 20. The home opener is Aug. 24 against Lebanon.

Ursuline Academy

The Lions were one step from the Division I final four last season - going 16-3-2 and taking second in the Girls Greater Cincinnati League before losing 2-1 to Mason in the regional final. Head coach Colleen Dehring graduated seven from that squad, including 2013 Northeast Suburban Life Sportswoman of the Year Michelle Christy, now playing at TenSee GIRLS, Page A7

self.” In the first match of the championships, Kings Hammer routed Toms River (New Jersey) Elite United FC, 5-1. Four of the goals were scored by Oak Hills High School Highlanders — Sydney Kilgore, Bayley Feist, Brittany Mahoney, and Katie Murray — while the fifth was notched by Summit Country Day’s Mia Schreibeis. The second match was tighter, Feist and Dixie Height High School’s Lauren Nemeroff scoring late goals to give Kings Hammer a 2-1 victory over Match Fit Colchesters (N.J.). Nemeroff scored the lone Kings Hammer goal in a 1-1 draw with 97 Louisiana Fire Navy. The 2-0-1 mark in pool play was enough to advance Kings Hammer to the National Championship, where they faced Southern California’s

DMCV Sharks Elite. “The girls played very well together and jelled very quickly this year as we had quite a lot of turnover at the end of last season,” said Pickup. “That’s what has impressed me the most this year as the girls really took off where they left off in 2012.” The core of the team has been together for three to four years, with several players growing up with the program since they began playing select soccer at age 7. Captain Payton Atkins (Turpin High School, University of Kentucky commit) has been playing for Kings Hammer since she was 7. While many of the girls compete against one another each fall, team chemistry has not been an issue for Kings Hammer. “Playing as a team is our best attribute. We obvi-

ously have great players but we work hard for each other and the team concept is our main focus,” said Pickup. “The players’ dedication and drive also impresses me. We try to play the game the right way so in regards success our possession of the ball was key.” In the final, Mahoney gave Kings Hammer a 1-0 lead heading into halftime. A goal by DMCV in the 69th minute forced overtime. Nemeroff put Kings Hammer back on top with a goal in overtime, but her score was equalized by DMCV in the 95th minute. DMCV was a perfect 5-5 in penalty kicks to earn the victory. “It was devastating to lose on pens as we had numerous opportunities to win the game in regulation and then again in overtime after leading in both peri-

ods,” said Pickup. “We played well enough to win the game so it was hard going all the way to penalties only to lose especially after losing last year as well.” Despite the heartbreaking loss, there were plenty positives to take away from the experience. Nemeroff was named the MVP of the tournament, and she was joined on the Best 11 by Murray. Their individual efforts were recognized, but it was the total team effort that has brought Kings Hammer so much success in recent years. “I would say the team’s consistency at the highest level is what impresses me the most,” said Pickup. “I think what makes playing us so hard is that other teams need to shut down our whole team rather than certain individuals.” The players now prepare for their high school seasons. Most will be back with Kings Hammer next year, hoping that the third time is the charm. “These girls, with a few new additions, will return as always focused and ready to try and achieve their ultimate goal of becoming National Champions,” said Pickup. “Third time is lucky is what I am hoping for!”

have been playing together for three years, so they know each other and understand how to play with each other. We have holes to fill in each area of the field, but I am confident that we have a great group from which we can fill those holes.” Returning starters include a pair of seniors in keeper Anna Speyer and defender Allison Werner. Also back a quintet of ju-

niors: Defenders Jordan Hollmeyer and Emma Niehaus, midfielders Mattina Girardot and Andie Kennard, and striker Sarah Roberston. Varsity veterans who could step into starting roles this season include senior midfielder Sarah Seedhouse, junior midfielder Emily Halmi, junior defender Andrea Sanitato and sophomore midfielder Holyn Alf.

Keep an eye on freshman Paige Hollmeyer, Jordan’s younger sister, who could make an impact right away. Dehring said St. Ursula Academy should be the team to beat in the always-

demanding GGCL, but her club has high hopes. “Win league, district, regional, state, these are the lofty goals and ones that I know many teams have,” she said. “But also, play good soccer, go into

For the second straight year, Kings Hammer Academy’s girls U16 red team placed second at the 2013 U.S. Youth Soccer National Championships. The squad advanced to the championship match before falling in penalty kicks on Sunday, July 28, at the Overland Park Soccer Complex in Overland Park, Kan. Last year, Kings Hammer lost the National Championship 1-0. This year, Kings Hammer extended the championship match into overtime, before losing on PKs, 2-2 (5-3). The loss stings, but there is definitely comfort in playing at the highest level against the best teams the country has to offer. Following the tournament, Kings Hammer was awarded the Fair Play Award, given to the team that all coaches and administrators voted on as the best overall team at the championships. “Our expectation going into this year after losing last year was to go one better and win it all,” said Kings Hammer coach Jon Pickup. “That being said, to reach a National Championship two years in a row is something special in it-

Milford soccer alumni pull together for family The Milford High School Alumni soccer games are back this year being much more than just a soccer game. The organization is pulling together the entire community to celebrate the life of a community hero, Connor Martin, son of Shannon Martin (a graduate and soccer player for Milford High School) and Amy (Babinec) Martin, a graduate of Milford. Connor was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer (ATRT) that makes up only three in

one million forms of childhood cancer. The cancer is so rare that it came with many challenges. After fighting for more than a year, Connor died on June 5. Connor’s treatment was ongoing over the past year and created financial strains on the family. Even with Insurance the family had many out-of-pocket expenses that can really add up. So the Milford soccer family is pulling together to honor Connor’s life and the Martin family. The event is Sunday, Aug. 25, at Milford High

School on the Charity Lucas Soccer Field. The women’s game is 3 p.m. and the men’s game is 5 p.m. All proceeds from games, split-the-pot, food, company sponsorships, etc., will be donated to The Martin Family. Donations are needed for various raffles, company sponsorships for shirts and any vendors that would like to be included. For donations, contact Carissa Smith at carissasmith9@yahoo.com or 937510-2021.

Clermont County, COMMUNITY PRESS with its paid claims of GUEST COLUMNIST $76,479, ranked the highest in the state. The largest local payouts were for the Little Miami Railroad ($13,700) and the Williamsburg covered bridge ($2,700). The remaining 427 Clermont claims were paid to civilians for livestock, jewelry, clothing, cheese and crackers, and two barrels of beer. This damage does not rise to the level of causing a blow to the North’s military effort. Therefore, Morgan’s Ohio raid also failed Longacre’s second test. After a while, discipline began to fall apart. The raiders indulged in drinking. They took bird cages, ice skates, bolts of calico; none of which had military significance. They began to look more like drunken Vikings than trained military operatives. The raid did have a psychological

benefit of raising Southern morale; especially after the crushing defeats of Gettysburg and Vicksburg. But the temporary benefit came at a frightful price - the loss of 2,160 of his 2,460man command. Morgan lost favor within the Confederate command structure. He was seen by some as untrustworthy. His celebrity, stoked by the raid, probably saved him from an investigation. After escaping from the Ohio State Penitentiary, Morgan reformed his command. But it wasn’t the same. His men were not of the same caliber. His activities shaded more to the criminal than military. After robbing a bank in Mount Sterling, Kentucky, an investigation was opened. He was saved from a probable court-martial when he was killed in September 1864. How are we to observe the anniversary of the raid? This question, and the larger question of how should we view the Civil War 150 years later, will be addressed in the next article. We will compare two states - Ohio and Georgia - to see their different approaches to this topic.

NEXT QUESTION

Should the minimum wage for fastfood workers be doubled from $7.25 to $15 an hour and should they be given the right to unionize? Why or why not?

“Yes, minimum wage workers deserve to make more money at McDonald’s and everywhere. “I worked at Frisch’s in college and barely make $4 and hour many years ago. “This helps the social safety net to stop having to support poor families, and higher wages always boost the economy. “Unions make things better for the middle class even though conservatives ignorantly complain about pensions and costs. “Remember: most Americans have a five-day work week and several paid holidays because of the unions fighting the good fight for labor!” TRog

“No, not to $15 but it should be raised a couple of bucks. In real terms, the $7.25/hr. is less than when it was raised the last time. No one can live on that. “Also it is you and I, through the government, that is subsidizing these corporations, whether it be McDonalds or Wal-Mart, since so many of their employees qualify for SNAP and/or Medicaid. This is corporate welfare at its worst. “Business must provide a living wage. Does not mean that those on the bottom should earn the same as an executive, but it does mean that they should at least stop being exploited. “Lastly, the argument put forward by McDonalds and others that this is often entry level jobs for teens is lame. Most of the workers I see in the fast food industry are hard pressed former middle-class citizens who are trying to get by. Good luck.” J.Z.

“The wages people earn are determined by the value of their labor to the employer and the willingness of employees to work for what employers are willing to pay. “If there are enough people willing to work for $7.25, why should employers pay more? “If the government forces a doubling of the wage, the price everyone else will pay for the food will increase

significantly. The sales of fast food will decline (may not be a bad thing), and the restaurants will employ fewer people. “Some of the best employees will make more money and a whole bunch will be out of a job.” F.S.D.

“Of course not. All that will do is increase inflation. When unions first came into the business world they served a purpose – to prevent employers from abusing employees. “Today, all unions do is make the unions richer while making companies raise their prices so they can turn a profit. Companies are in business to make money, not break even. “When the guy cutting grass at a GM plant is making $75/hr. something is wrong. One only has to look at Detroit to see what four decades of union and democratic policies can do to a once vibrant, growing city. “People need to be paid a living wage. $7.25/hr. is NOT a living wage. If you raise it to $15/hr and allow the unions in that $15/hr. will be about $8/hr. after union dues.” J.S.K.

“No to both questions! Small, privately-owned fast food businesses cannot afford that large of a jump in salaries when medical insurance and benefits costs are getting ready to skyrocket, thanks to Obamacare and federal intervention at every level of a business’ operation. “It will also cause a huge jump in the cost of the product that they sell and middle-class and lower-class families

After 150 years, Morgan’s Raid is still controversial

John Hunt Morgan remains controversial 150 years after his July raid through Ohio. To some he is still the “bold cavalier” - a martyred hero of the Lost Cause. To others he is a scoundrel - a common criminal who deserved jail time. What to make of him? Morgan should have been courtmartialed. He disobeyed a direct order not to cross into Ohio. He accomplished very little of military significance and yet succeeded in destroying his command. Was the raid a military success? Historian Edward Longacre wrote that for a raid “to be considered a complete and enduring success it had to be linked in someway with a larger operation. Damage to enemy property, however extensive, was not deemed a sufficient feat unless it materially aided the greater designs of the general-in-chief of the army. In other words, when it made strategic as well as tactical contributions to the fortunes of the army.” With these criteria in mind, let’s analyze the raid. Morgan did accomplish his initial objective of delaying the Federal advance into eastern Tennessee. The objective of the Ohio por-

will find themselves not being able to grab that fast food burger any longer. “And unions need to be phased out, not encouraged. They no longer serve any purpose but to keep prices high on cars, groceries, etc. “High union wages (and even higher wages for the union leaders) made it hard for American car manufacturers to compete against the Japanese years ago, which gave foreign cars a major foothold into our car market and is helping to cause the bankruptcy of Detroit, Mich., right now. “Unions also encourage non-productivity with all of the regulations regarding break times (an excessive number of them from what I could see after visiting a Chevy plant years ago), long vacations, and job security even when a worker really needs to be fired for incompetency. “Look at all of the companies that are struggling financially and I’ll bet you see that a high percentage of them are unionized. “Unions used to be a good thing, but now they are strangling our companies and putting many of them out of business. In order for this country to compete again in the world economy, we need to get rid of unions and let businesses police themselves. “If they start mistreating workers again, the word will get out quickly via electronic media and the abuses will not be tolerated as they were when unions became a necessity. “The government needs to stop overregulating every aspect of our lives and the operation of our businesses. We are starting to look more like 1940s Germany every day.” C.H.

“Fast-food workers should be allowed to unionize and receive a decent living wage. “Who can live on $7.25/hour? I’m sure no one reading this paper does or could make it on that amount of money unless they are living with relatives and uses someone else’s car. “Businesses don’t want to pay a decent wage because it affects the profit. My heart aches to those stuck in a job that doesn’t pay enough to provide the necessities.”

Obamacare unworkable for American people “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it.” Those were the words of then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi three years ago, describing the passage of President Obama’s health care law. Unfortunately for the American people, we are finally finding out what is actually in Obamacare. Unworkable mandates have proven too much for even the Obama administration to enforce along the original timeline. Conveniently, over the 4th of July week, the Obama administration announced in a quiet blog post on an obscure government webpage that the employer mandate is delayed a year. This mandate requires employers with 50 or more employees to provide employees with governmentapproved health care Brad or receive a fine. While Wenstrup COMMUNITY PRESS good news for the moment, this delay is GUEST COLUMNIST merely a “stay of execution” for our already struggling economy. A one-year delay does not help anyone in the long term, neither employer nor employee. Employees will either be laid off or have their hours reduced now, or in a year. Employers will either spend millions of dollars and man hours complying with regulations now, or in a year. I have heard from many small businesses and local governments in Ohio about the uncertainty surrounding the requirements and enforcement that Obamacare demands of them. Every employer is trying to navigate the complex maze of new government requirements and regulations. They have already started working to meet the mandate, and now are stuck in limbo as the executive branch tries to figure out which parts of the law they will enforce, and when. The unilateral decision to delay certain provisions undermines the very rule of law. If President Obama can pick and choose what he wants to enforce within Obamacare, what prevents him from doing the same with other legislation? While this administration has determined that its signature piece of legislation is too complicated for businesses, the individual mandate still stands. Businesses get a break, but individuals have no relief from the burdens of Obamacare. The individual mandate must be delayed too. In the long term, a permanent delay through the full repeal of Obamacare and its mandates is the only workable solution. On the road to repeal the House of Representatives is working to ensure that all Americans receive equal treatment under the law. Should not laws be fairly applied to everyone? The House passed two bills that legally delay not only the employer mandate, but also the individual mandate. It’s only fair. Why do hardworking individuals not deserve relief from the hardships of Obamacare? If President Obama and his allies in Congress stand by their decision to delay one mandate, is it not fair to delay the other? While the president himself begins to acknowledge the deficiencies in his law, we all must work towards real solutions that put the patient at the center of our healthcare system, not the government.

AUGUST 14, 2013 • LOVELAND HERALD • B3

Rita shares dilly beans, reader 7-Up cake recipes Rita’s classic dilly beans

Pack beans lengthwise into four hot pint jars, leaving 1⁄4-inch head space. To each pint, add 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper, 1 clove garlic and 1 teaspoon dill seed. Bring vinegar, water and salt to a boil. Pour immediately over beans, leaving 1⁄4-inch head space. Remove air bubbles by sliding a butter knife around inside edges of jars. Wipe rims clean with damp cloth. Place seals and rings on. Process 10 minutes in boiling water bath. These are best eaten chilled.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

If you don’t want to can these, cap and seal, cool to room temperature and store in refrigerator up to six months.

Ohio Sweetheart City offers Valentine card design contest Don’t miss the opportunity to compete in the Loveland Area Chamber of Commerce’s 26th annual Valentine Card Design Contest. All Tristate area artists, photographers, students, and interested persons are encouraged to participate by designing a card which pertains to love and Valentine’s Day, then attach the cachet bearing our signature slogan, “There is nothing in this world so sweet as love,” and submit the original artwork to the Loveland Area Chamber of Commerce. The deadline is Nov 15, but don’t wait until the last

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine above ingredients and beat 2 minutes. Prepare a Bundt pan (spray well) and pour mixture in. Bake 45-55 minutes.

Friend and colleague Leah Ochs, director of Jungle Jim’s cooking school, has a similar recipe and substitutes Sriracha sauce to taste for the pepper flakes. 2 generous pounds green beans, trimmed to fit canning jars 4 teaspoons dill seed or 4 large heads dill 4 small cloves garlic 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, divided (optional) 21⁄2 cups clear vinegar 21⁄2 cups water 1 ⁄4 cup canning salt

minute and be caught in the holidays rush. Submit your design now – your artwork will be held until the deadline and you won’t have to hurry. It’s not too early – start your design now! All submittals should be sent to: Loveland Area Chamber of Commerce 123 S. Second St. Loveland, Ohio 45140 The winning card design will be unveiled at the Valentine Kick-off Jan 4 and will be the official 2014 Valentine card. The card will be for sale at several Loveland area businesses, stores, and other locations.

Doris, a Kentucky reader, had a recipe using a cake mix and also had an interesting icing. “The index card is all yellowed and stained. So, I know it’s a good one,” she said.

1 cup 7-Up

2 eggs, beaten 1 tablespoon flour 1 cup crushed pineapple, undrained 11⁄2 cups sugar 1 stick margarine 1 cup coconut

Diana’s glaze

Diane didn’t say if she cooked the glaze, but I would assume the sugar has to melt, so I’d cook it over very low heat until sugar melts. Add bourbon last.

Cook all ingredients (except coconut) until thick, add coconut and pour over hot cake. Top with pecans.

⁄2 stick butter, melted Scant 2⁄3 cup sugar 1 ⁄3 cup bourbon (or whatever, rum is good too)

1

Rita used her own fresh green beans to make her dilly beans. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

7-Up cake from scratch

Bake for 1-11⁄4 hours.

Here’s Donna A.’s recipe from 30 years ago. Tom wanted a fromscratch recipe, so hopefully this will work.

This is one I use for lemon pound cake. Just stir 2⁄3 cup confectioner’s sugar with 1 tablespoon or so lemon juice.

11⁄2 cups butter, softened 3 cups sugar 5 eggs 3 cups flour 2 tablespoons lemon extract 3 ⁄4 cup 7-Up

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cream sugar and butter together and beat until light and fluffy (about 20 minutes with an electric beater). Add eggs, one at a time and beat well. Add flour one cup at a time. Beat in lemon extract and 7-Up. Pour batter into a well greased and floured jumbo, fluted Bundt pan.

Simple lemon glaze

Diane Byrne’s 7-Up pound cake using cake mix Diane, a Loveland reader, told me: “I got this from my mom several years ago. I’ve never made the glaze without the alcohol. I’m not sure what you’d substitute.” Any suggestions? 1 package Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Cake Mix 1 4-cup package instant lemon pudding 1 ⁄2 cup vegetable oil 4 eggs

Sometimes I wish I was a high-tech person. Like a while back when I made dilly beans and took photos of the beans picked from my garden along with photos of the finished beans after canning. I still have the photo of the garden beans, but the finished beans in jars photo has vanished and I don’t know how to retrieve it from my Rita camera. I Heikenfeld can’t take RITA’S KITCHEN another photo because, well, the beans are all gone. The recipe makes four jars and were so good that we ate a jar and gave the other three away. But I promise you will love the beans, photo or not. I was blown away by the huge response to Tom W.’s request for a 7-Up cake that was published years ago in the Enquirer. The stories alone made me chuckle, not to mention how good all the recipes looked. I will share both in an upcoming blog. Today I’m sharing two versions: One from scratch, which Tom wanted, and another using a cake mix. Some folks don’t ice the cake, but others do so I’m sharing icing recipes as well.

Think twice about buying at your door We’ve all experience it; someone comes to your front door trying to sell you something. But is it a good idea to buy from a door-todoor salesman? One area woman says after the experience Howard she’s had Ain she’ll nevHEY HOWARD! er do it again. Jessica Jones, of Butler, Ky., says a salesman came to her door last February. “We were home and I got a knock

numbers so they may not be visible at night if someone calls for police, fire or an ambulance. That’s why she says she really wanted those reflective numbers for her mailbox. “I’m just aggravated. He took $20 from me that day with a promise of a sign that I never received. How many other people are out there with that same promise that maybe even forgot about it?” Jones asks. A check with the Better Business Bureau shows the company has received more than a dozen complaints, mainly from people who say

on the door from a gentleman. He says he was selling reflective signs for your mailbox.” The company was selling the signs for $20 apiece and Jones bought one. Her receipt says it was supposed to have been delivered in March. But now, more than four months later, she still didn’t have it. “Needless to say its still not installed. I’ve called three different times and received promises of them being out to install it – but still no sign,” Jones says. Jones does have numbers on her mailbox, but they’re not reflective

they too never received their reflective signs. The BBB gives that company an “F” rating. When I told Jones about the Better Business Bureau report she said, “Wow, wow. It just goes to show don’t ever buy anything from a door-to-door salesman.” Such complaints are not at all uncommon. I’ve received many letters from homeowners who paid for magazine subscriptions yet never received anything. In one case a homeowner did receive the magazines but realized too late she had greatly overpaid for the subscriptions.

In Jones’ case I contacted the reflective sign company owner who said he was busy taking care of customers to whom he had failed to deliver the signs. He says he got behind and blamed the weather for the delay. After I called he finally did get the sign put on Jones’ mailbox. So, what should you do if a salesman comes knocking on your door? You could refuse to buy, as Jones has vowed. Or, if you’re interested in the product, I suggest you go ahead and place your order. But, just as with Girl Scout cookies, don’t pay until they return

YWCA graduates women from leadership program The recent graduation of the seventh class of YWCA Rising Stars Leadership Program adds more certified ready-toserve women leaders to the YWCA’s Rising Star Board Registry. Local non-profit organizations can access this group of qualified and diverse candidates to serve on their respective boards simply by contacting the YWCA with their request. As a frequent program facilitator, Co-Chairwoman of the Rising Star Advisory Committee and a recent addition to the YWCA Board of Directors, Diane Jordan-Grizzard (author, management consultant and president/CEO of Thembi Speaks LLC) has had many opportunities to interact with this year’s class. The 2010 YWCA Career Women of Achievement honoree had this to say about the Rising Star Leadership Program Class of 2013: “We salute these brilliant and confident Rising Stars who will change the outlook of what women can do in our

region, and the world.” The YWCA Rising Star program is designed to support younger career women (age 25-40) in pursuit of excellence in their careers. The Leadership Program is exclusively for Rising Stars who are interested in strengthening their leadership skills, potentially in preparation for their future of service on boards in the community. The Rising Star Leadership Program allows a select and diverse group of younger women in promising careers to spend time with the community’s top women leaders, the past honorees of the YWCA Career Women of Achievement Award. Kathy Beechem, director, Spiritual Growth for Crossroads Community Church, a 2002 YWCA Career Woman of Achievement, and former chairwoman of the YWCA’s Board of Directors, leads the Rising Star Leadership Program.

Drs. Megan McLane and Maggie Schuckman, board-certified veterinary cardiologists at the Care Center, 6995 E. Kemper Road, performed a minimally-invasive, advanced life-saving cardiac procedure on Maggie, a 4-month-old Labrador retriever dog, May 22. Maggie was born with a congenital defect of her heart called a patent ductus arteriosis (PDA). McLane and Schuckman performed an intravascular amplatz canine ductal occluder (ACDO) deployment procedure on the dog, effectively curing the otherwise terminal condition. “PDA has traditionally been fixed with surgery, but this minimally invasive technique allows us to repair the condition without the patient having to have her chest opened surgically,” Schuckman said. “As you can imagine, the recovery from this

Maggie, a 4-month-old Labrador retriever dog, underwent heart surgery May 22. PROVIDED

non-surgical procedure is much faster and far more comfortable.” “PDA is a condition where the patient has an open fetal vessel that should have been shut down shortly after birth, but which instead continues to allow blood flow,” McLane said. “This makes the heart much less efficient and can lead to severe problems as the puppy grows older.” “We’re excited to be able to offer this proce-

dure at Care Center. We feel this offers puppies with PDA the easiest, fastest way to recover from this condition, Schuckman said. “PDA is one of the most common congenital defects in dogs, so having an alternative to surgery can benefit a great number of patients.” Intravascular ACDO deployment involves placing a catheter in the major artery in the dog’s leg. Through this catheter, the cardiologist has access to the abnormally open vessel. Once in the abnormal vessel, the ACDO device is placed, and acts as a plug. “We’re effectively closing the vessel from the inside,” Schuckman said. The day after the procedure, Maggie was bouncing around Care Center’s ICU, playing with her nurses as much as she was allowed.
