BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Hilliker: Quality Profile ‘holistic’ view Loveland Schools join other districts for supplement to state’s report card By Jason Hoffman jhoffman@communitypress.com

LOVELAND — The state might have released its report cards for public schools Aug. 22, but Loveland City Schools joined other districts to look beyond test scores and classroom metrics. “So much of what we do is beyond what people see,” said Chad Hilliker, superintendent. “It’s great for us from a commu-

nity standpoint to see (the report) because this is how we offer a well-rounded education to our students.” The Quality Profile helps characterize the overall educational value in a school district in areas that matter most in the community, according to the first page of each district’s profile, accounting for 10 categories. Instead of measuring only test scores and graduation

rates, the profile also looks at arts, digital learning, where district money is spent, and community involvement among other things. As a public school district Loveland is accountable to the state, Hilliker said, but, and more importantly, is answerable to its parents, teachers, students and staff. "Our community expects more,” Hilliker said. “They want what’s best for the student in and out of the classroom.” The state’s profile of

Symmes family cycles across country By Leah Fightmaster lfightmaster@communitypress.com

Looking at the Boutilier family, one would notice they all have a similar slim build. Jaws hit the floor when they tell people they just spent part of their summer riding their bikes across the United States. This Symmes Township family has cycling in its blood. Donna, 59, attempted to make the cross country trip before, but she ran out of vacation days and had to stop and return to work. Glenn, 60, had openheart surgery in April and went back to cycling soon after. Emily, 21, is a senior at Xavier University and Joanna, 19, is a student at Ohio State University. All four put their busy lives on hold for nearly 10 weeks to make the more than 4,000-mile trip. Beginning in Yorktown, VA, May 19, they started on the TransAmerica Trail, a cycling route from Virginia to Oregon that crosses four mountain ranges and 10 states, set up in

New law aims to slow head trauma in sports By Mark D. Motz mmotz@communitypress.com

Arguably the best player on the field, wasn’t. A week into contact drills during preseason football practices at New Richmond High School, a four-year starter and team leader had participated for part of only one practice. Not because of bad grades. Not for disciplinary reasons. Not even because he didn’t feel up to playing. Rather, he’d been held out to comply with the law. A new Ohio requirement – signed into law in December of 2012 and enacted in April of this year – prevents players with concussions from returning to action too soon. This particular player took a blow to the head on the first day of practice and had yet to receive medical clearance to play. (The Community Press is

not naming the student-athlete for privacy reasons; he has since been cleared to play.) “You can’t be too careful,” first-year Lions Marcheschi head coach Josh Stratton said. “He had his bell rung, for sure. But with this new law in Ohio, anything that even looks like a concussion has to be taken off the field, tested and cleared. “If a player is dehydrated and gets a headache from that and tells a coach or a trainer, we have to have them checked. We’ve lost some player days to that kind of scenario, but keeping kids safe is a lot more important than sending them out there if they’re injured or potentially injured.” The legislation known as House Bill 143 “implements

It was a huge compliment to us.” Joanna said that it never occurred to her and sister Emily that they wouldn’t try to ride the trail with their parents one day.

on bikes when they were only days old each, with their parents toting them along behind them. As they got older, they began taking bike trips together and with friends who would come along after being trained by Donna. While growing up, there was a map in the basement from Donna’s unfinished bike trip. Joanna said they always noticed it, and plans for this summer’s trip started last year. As the leave date quickly approached, Glenn was admitted for open-heart surgery to unblock a 90 percent blockage in his left anterior descending coronary artery April 10. Not only concerned about his health, they wondered if their plans were in jeopardy. “We told every doctor we met that we were planning to ride our bikes across America,” Donna said. The surgery made the

difference. Glenn’s surgery was robotic, which only requires two incisions for cameras and instruments, rather than the more traditional that involves cutting bones and muscles in the chest. Not very long after, Glenn was back on his back and riding double-digit miles in a day. The trip was still on. As they traveled the country, the four collected inside jokes and memorable stories that seemed to pour from each of them, almost without encouragement. Tales about climbing through mountain passes, singing “America the Beautiful” as they passed amber waves of grain, and being able to “speak” to the cows they passed and watching them run along with them are never-ending, and they each remembered a new detail every time the story was told. There were tough times, they said. Joanna was sick with nausea for almost a week in Colorado, which concerned her

that she wouldn’t be able to eat enough calories to maintain her energy. A surprise hill in Kentucky proved especially hard on Emily, and Donna had to chase a man who was stealing Joanna’s bike on the second-last day of their trip. Even with the tough times when they could have cracked, none of them ever wanted to quit. “There was never one day that was entirely miserable,” Emily said. “There was joy in every day.”

MIAMI TWP. — Police Chief R. Steven Bailey delivered some “good news, bad news” at a trustee meeting last month. Good news: The police department is now eligible to apply for a trafficcontrol grant worth about $51,000. Bad news: The department only became eligible for the grant because four traffic fatalities occurred in the township last year. “Our objective once we get the grant is to

make sure that doesn’t happen again,” Bailey said. “The grant funds overtime for police officers to do traffic patrol.” The High Visibility Enforcement Overtime Grant has not been approved yet, he said. There have been two fatal crashes in Miami Township this year, said Jim Young, a sergeant in the Miami Township police department, at a safe communities meeting in July. Young said the department received the grant in 2008 and 2009 and it was helpful in making ad-

ditional arrests. The grant also provides funds for fuel and training, he said. Bailey The Ohio Department of Public Safety issues the grant with money from the U.S. Department of Transportation, Bailey said. “They want us to reduce crashes overall, but specifically crashes related to alcohol and not wearing a seat belt, speed and texting on the phone -

distracted driving,” he said. The overtime hours are used each month, but there are specific time periods - such as holidays, the Super Bowl and prom season - where the hours are focused, Bailey said. “If you look at the crashes we had, all of the fatalities (last year) involved speed, three of four involved alcohol and three of four involved people not wearing seat belts,” he said. If approved, the grant would take effect Sept. 1, Bailey said.

Lower-body injuries top list among youth sports By Tom Skeen tskeen@communitypress.com

HAMILTON COUNTY —

While concussions may get the most attention when it comes to injuries, they account for just 14 percent of all youth sports injuries (age 19 and under) according to a study done by USA Today. The study analyzed youth sports injuries in 2011 and 2012 and determined the three most common sports injuries are sprains/strains, fractures and contusions. When being more specific, Oxford Physical Therapy’s Liz Reis said injuries to the ankle, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and the shoulder’s are the most common injuries she sees as a physical therapist among high school athletes. In today’s world of expensive shoes, the argu-

Trauma Continued from Page A1

submitted a signed form stating that the student and the student's parent or other guardian has received a concussion and head injury information sheet created by the (Ohio) Department of Health.” Such precautions are a far cry from from the playing days of University of Cincinnati orthopedist Dr. Angelo Colosimo – a former Bengals team doctor who was a high school and college player in his own right.

ment has come about whether or not a shoe can cause an injury. The perception is you see more ACL tears today than you did 10-20 years ago when shoes weren’t as advanced, but Reis believes there are a variety of factors that play into any injury. “… There is a push for a more natural shoe,” she said. “From a physical therapist’s perspective, if your foot mechanics are off, then it’s going to work up the chain and cause problems. … There is no rhyme or reason as to when these people are developing these injuries, but in theory, most people need a good, supportive shoe.” Reis has seen an increase in Iliotibial Band Syndrome, or more commonly known as the ITSB, in high school athletes. Also known as “Runners Knee,” accord-

ing to runnersworld.com it occurs when the IT band, a ligament that runs down the outside of the thigh from the hip to the shin, is tight or inflamed. The problem with the injury is it can be hidden with the use of anti-inflammatories and many athletes get back to their respective sport before the injury is fully healed. “The injury is not so much worrisome, but it can be difficult to rehab,” Reis said. “The (IT band) crosses the knee, so every time we bend our knee the band actually slips under the bone and it’s just a repetitive injury. People just need to give it time to heal, rest and strengthen the other muscles.” One trend Reis has seen lately is an increase in hamstring strains in younger athletes. The reason is factually un-

known, but Reis has her opinion. “I think it goes along with people gaining an understanding of stretching and warming up,” she said. “Some kids as they are going through growth spurts, their bones are elongating and the muscles are being forced to stretch out at the same time. So the kids are trying to stretch and using these muscles when they are working out, so they start to get some strain in the muscle. I think that is where a lot of these hamstring strains are coming in as they go through these growth spurts.” ACL tears, ITSB and hamstring problems are just three of hundreds of injuries that occur each high school sports season, but the prevention is all the same: Rest, adding prevention and strengthening exercises and proper technique top the

list of way to prevent injuries. “These statistics don’t have to be part of the game if we take some

simple precautions,” Kate Carr of Safe Kids Worldwide said as part of the USA Today study.

“When I played, you got drilled, you didn’t even know where you were and you went back to the huddle and carried the ball again,” Colosimo said. “It’s amazing where the science has gone when you look at the long-term damage of tramautic brain injuries. It affects you long term. The idea is to limit that. “You can’t play (football) without contact. If you play this game, you’re going to get your head dinged. It’s going to happen. What we’re trying to do is to limit the damage that’s done.” Dr. Edward Marcheschi leads The Christ Hos-

pital sports medicine concussion management program and supports the new state law. “I think the state law is a necessary step to ensure that people involved in sports are being educated and that our youth athletes are being protected from suffering from a potentially catastrophic injury when the brain is traumatized from a concussion,” he said. “Concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury, but there is nothing ‘mild' about it.” Ask Loveland parent Scott Schlesner, whose son Cole took a line drive to the head in a summerleague baseball game

four years ago, causing traumatic brain injury. “It’s really encouraging that there is a greater sense of awareness in society about the dangers of head injury,” Schlesner said. “Unlike a lot of other injuries, head injury is the one thing that nobody really knows the longterm ramifications, how they may affect you, down the road. UC trainer Bob Mangine, who sees patients of all ages through Novacare in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati, agreed. “It’s critical because of the long-term problem you can develop,” he said.

“If you tear an ACL, you can fix it and it doesn’t affect your memory, give you dementia or depress you. When you start to mess with the brain, there’s a lot of long term implications.” “There’s a lot more knowledge to what happens to their brains later in life,” Anderson High School trainer April Nierman said. “A lot of kids that have gotten their bell rung have sat out a period of time. There’s a progression to come back. It’s a period of four to five days to get them to come back after their symptoms are gone.” The new law broadens

the protection by requiring standards for those participating in youth sports organizations not affiliated with the Ohio High School Athletic Association. “Ultimately, House Bill 143 sets a uniformed standard for concussion treatment in sports activities throughout the entire state, and we will be reducing the risk of sporadic enforcement that existed previously,” Stinziano said. Reporters Kurt Backscheider, Jeanne Houck, Kelly McBride and Scott Springer contributed to this story.

City council seeking proposals for condemned church Loveland mayor says process is only way to save building By Jason Hoffman jhoffman@communitypress.com

LOVELAND — The future of the condemned church building on Chestnut Street could soon be determined. Loveland City Council Tuesday Aug. 13 voted 4-3

to open the city-owned property to a request-forproposal process for future development. Mayor Rob Weisgerber said the preservation of the building is important, but it must be in line with the city’s interests. “We are not going to be

able to save this building without a RFP process,” Weisgerber said. “The process is to help shape the future use of the building in terms of transfer.” Weisgerber, along with Vice Mayor David Bednar and Brent Zuch and

Councilwoman Paulette Leeper voted to proceed with the process, while Councilwomen Angie Settell and Linda Cox joined Councilman Mark Fitzgerald in opposition. Cox said the preservation committee should have been involved with the process. “They put a lot of time and effort in and have a lot of background on the church and its place in the community,” she said. “They would have great input on the project.” Leeper said the RFP is positive because the building is in a severe state of disrepair and it won’t get better with age. “I would like to get this project moving forward,” she said. The dispute over a building centers on a group called the Predestinarian Church Preservation Committee wanting to purchase the church from the city and repair it at its current location. The city purchased the property more than two years ago after it had already gone through two Hamilton County public auctions. Joe Schickel, fundrais-

ing chair for the committee said the decision should be made by voters in the November elections. Schickel did not say if the group had plans to participate in the process. “We’ve already submitted a very good proposal,” Schickel said, talking about the group’s offer to buy the church

from the city and rehabilitate it at its current location. “I think the city manager and his majority on council have badly mishandled this project and it will be interesting to see what the electorate has to say.” Weisgerber said the response time for the proposals isn’t set, but it would be sufficient for interested parties to develop a process and submit plans. Speaking of the committee, the mayor emphasized the importance of the RFP process. “If they choose not to participate, they are choosing not to preserve the building,” he said. “If they want to have a part in the church’s preservation, they have to participate in the RFP process.” In opposition to the RFP, Settell said it’s a premature action and that the church should be a gateway to any future development on Chestnut Street because of its historical significance. “Rather than taking more time to work out the issues between the church group and city hall, bring in all interested parties to the table in a collegial and productive manner – we failed to take that important step,” she said. “The RFP was proposed as the solution – working together and finding a common ground is the solution.” City council sent three proposals to the committee – the last one offering to lease the building for $1 a year while the group had time to renovate the inside to make the building inhabitable again – that were not agreeable. The committee never changed its proposal to buy the church. The city emphasized time being of the essence, Schickel said, when the committee first expressed interest in the building, and now council is starting a slow, bureaucratic process.

Tiger varsity men open soccer season with 2 ties The following are submitted summaries of Loveland High School boys soccer games.

Varsity

Loveland 1, St. Xavier 1 First up on the schedule for the Loveland High School men’s varsity soccer team was a home match against the Bombers of St. Xavier, Aug. 17. As a result of a penalty kick, center mid Greg Bohn accounted for the only score in the match as the Tigers ended the game tied 1-1. The Tigers’ defense was solid throughout the game allowing only one for the preseason number one Bombers. The Tigers were led defen-

sively by Tyler Mikula and Joey Papa. Loveland 1, Indian Hill 1 The team continued the new season with a 1-1 tie with Indian Hill High School, Aug. 20. Loveland’s goal was scored in the first half by striker Parker Preston. The outstanding play of goalie Matt Noland saved the game in the second half with several exciting saves for the Tigers. Center defensive mids Ethan Conte and Collin Melink played a fantastic game stopping the Braves and saving the Tigers as the battle to score took place on the field. Next up for the Tigers is the game against McNicholas High School at home.

team was 18-6 last year; they were playing a quality opponent in Sycamore; and they were without junior Sarah Marlatt for 90 percent of the game due to illness. Marlatt stands around 6foot-2 and is considered a top college prospect. Bowling Green, UC, Miami, Liberty,

Loveland Summer Box Lacrosse League wraps season It was the tale of two halves at the boys high school championship on Wednesday, July 31, as the Loveland Summer Box Lacrosse League wrapped up the season in another actionpacked finals. Undefeated Team Smolinski took on a strong challenger in the always fun-to-watch Team Abbott at the Loveland Outdoor Box Lacrosse Arena at Royal Field in Symmes Township. Coach Iain Abbott and his crew took an early 5-2 lead in the first half behind multiple goals from senior Brad Clements and junior Drew McDonald. Team Smolinski had difficulty getting the ball past senior goalie Brian McElveen for most of the first 20 minutes, leaving Team Abbott holding a 7-4 lead at half. Hoping to extend the lead into the second half and secure the win, Team Abbott coach Ian Abbott made a bold move, switching out McElveen’s stopping ability in the cage for the Division I-bound recruit’s even stronger scoring ability in the field. Unfortunately for Team Abbott, the 4-0 Team Smolinski came out swinging in the second

half, quickly erasing the three goal deficit to take the lead with 15 minutes left. A strategic time out by coach Abbott allowed some key personnel moves, placing five fresh scoring threats on the field and going offense-heavy in an effort to gain back some ground. The trio of McElveen, Clements, and McDonald quickly responded with four unanswered goals (three by Clements) to pull back within two. It wasn’t enough, as coach Scott Smolinski’s own power lineup of seniors Mike Shaver and Corey Cotsonas, and sophomores Michael Newbold and

Sam Walther proved too much for Team Abbott. Cotsonas and Shaver combined for eight goals on the evening, with Newbold and Walther chipping in another seven. Backed by first half sophomore goalie Isaac Butler and second half sophomore goalie Jackson Pardue, Team Smolinski pulled away for a 18-16 win and the 2013 Summer Box Championship. Notable performances on the night include Clements (8gs), McElveen (6gs), McDonald (5gs), Walther (5gs), Cotsonas (4gs), Shaver (4gs), Newbold (2s), LaChapelle (9 saves).

BLUE ASH — Panic is not a word one normally associates with Ursuline Academy athletics. Yet after graduating 13 seniors from a field hockey team that lost in the state final four to eventual champion Columbus Academy, head coach Elli Workum admitted some apprehension before taking a longer view. “I was so panicked at the end of last season, losing so many kids,” she said. “While I lost 13, I gained eight (juniors) and seven (returning seniors) who really want to play. The juniors all started on the JV team last year, and they won the league and their tournament. Most of the seniors had a great ride in somewhat lesser roles behind the graduating class.” The seniors in prominent roles last season include all-Ohio forward Audrey Coler and forward Abbey Main, who return to lead the offense. Freshman Jillian Shive should make an impact up front, too.

“Field hockey is not notorious for being a high-scoring game,” Workum said. “But that’s our goal, to put a lot of goals in the cage.” The Lions should have some success preventing goals, too, with the help of senior keeper Katie Polsen, senior defenders Caroline Smith and Monica Bockhorst and junior defender Claire Gruber. Seniors Lauren Rom and

Grace Rohs lend experience to the midfield. “We’re looking forward to a great year,” Workum said. “Our competition is going to be strong. I never underestimate the talent and coaches in our league. It’s going to be exciting and we’re ready to go.” Ursuline opened the season Aug. 27 (after Press deadlines) at home against Indian Hill.

READING — The Mount

Notre Dame Cougars are back in the eight-team Southwest Ohio Field Hockey League looking to gain ground on defending league champion Ursuline Academy. Coach Beth Vonderbrink’s girls recorded a first-round tournament win against Indian Hill last season and she figures she’ll be chasing Ursuline again for the league crown. MND has seven returning starters in seniors Mackenzie Feathers, Megan Goslee, Abby Reno, Andy Taney and Sarah Sikora; plus juniors Moriah Flynn and Ashley Wittman. Feathers, Reno and Taney play defense; Goslee, Sikora and Wittman are midfielders; with Flynn playing forward. Junior Ally Benz is also expected to be a factor in goal.

and is also getting college looks. “We have good backup,” Luning said. “We had a couple holes that really hurt.” Juniors Jessie Blumberg and Halle Russo should help fill some of last year’s holes. Both played well in the preseason, along with the rest of the 2013 Lady Tigers. “We had some scrimmages against some really good teams,” Luning said. “Ursuline and all of them. They hung well with all of them. We lost to them in the tournament.” Playing against Ursuline gets Loveland’s blood boiling. The defending Division I champions

“We have a group of players who started last year that will be returning for the 2013 season,” Vonderbrink said. “Also, we have a strong group of 10 seniors with great leadership and a junior class of ten-plus players.” After opening games with Magnificat and Tala-

knocked out Loveland last winter by winning three straight matches 25-19. Senior hitter Thomas is determined to get her teammates back in the postseason. “We all want to get back there,” Thomas said. “We all want to get another number up there (pointing to a volleyball banner in the Loveland gym).” The 5-foot-9 Thomas has the team’s best vertical as she can reach 9foot-6 with her hand. Combined with a healthy Marlatt, she was still optimistic after the opening loss to Sycamore. “Sarah does make a difference,” Thomas said. “We’re still trying to get together and figure each other out in how we communicate on the court. It’ll improve throughout the season.”

Even Sycamore coach Greg Ulland understands the value of Marlatt, as he coaches her in the offseason. His Elevation squad won nationals with Sarah spiking up front. With Marlatt in better physical condition this season, the head of the Lady Aves is high on Loveland repeating as league champ. “They’re great - this game has gone four or five (sets) every year we’ve played them,” Ulland said. “It’s a great out-ofconference game. This year we play everyone in this conference (ECC) except for Milford and Walnut Hills. I think they (Loveland) could win the league.” After home games to end August with Mason and Anderson, Loveland hosts Kings Sept. 3.

Hey GOP! Kasich Gets it!

CH@TROOM NEXT QUESTION Should fans at sporting events have to conform to a “code of conduct”? What types of behavior should be regulated? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to loveland@communitypress.com with Chatroom in the subject line.

Aug. 21 question Should the U.S. continue to provide financial and military aid to Egypt following the military's overthrow of its democratically elected government and its deadly attack on protesters?

“I’m glad you asked that question since President Obama has absolutely no idea what to do in all of the Middle East, let alone Egypt. “As Egypt burns and thousands die in the streets, our president enjoyed another round of golf on Martha’s Vineyard. Now that he is back to work in the Oval Office we’d expect him to roll up his sleeves and get to work on these urgent problems. “But no, he’s planning a bus tour to visit his rah-rah supporters who will dutifully swoon at his every word of sarcasm towards Congress while totally ignoring the Middle East and all the other REAL problems he promised to solve in his first term. “For me to suggest what ‘the U.S.’ should do is pointless since there is a wide gulf between America’s goals and whatever goals Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and now Secretary of State John Kerry have in mind for Egypt, etc. “Obama supported the overthrow of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and the installation of President Morsi who replaced Mubarak through what were believed to be free elections. “That Morsi, a dedicated member of the well-known terror group, The Muslim Brotherhood, immediately set about reneging on his election promises and proceeded to suspend freedoms and constitutional law in order to create a Sharia Law caliphate cannot be ignored. “Perhaps Obama is sympathetic towards Morsi having deep personal feelings of his own regarding broken campaign promises.” R.V.

“Why is the U.S. giving money to anyone – for any reason – when we can’t pay our own bills???”

J.K.

“I see no reason to give Egypt any money for anything. If they are our friends I sure don't want to know our enemies. “None of those countries have anything good for America, they are questionable at best and I would divorce myself from all of them. How many times does the hand have to be bitten before you stay away from the dog?”

Dave D.

Mr. Kasich got off to a rocky start as governor of our state. He antagonized the media at his inauguration. He passed legislation allowing guns in bars – alcohol and guns don’t mix – and he was soundly beaten by a mix of Democrats and blue collar Republicans on the when he tried to limit collective bargaining rights in the public sector. His popularity in the fall of 2011 was about as low as a snake’s belly. Recently, however, he has shown that he not only can change, but that he has a fundamental understanding of the reasons why the Republican Party is unpopular with many. He has even found a formula for reaching out to Democrats and independents, which will undoubtedly not only help him win re-election but boost support for the GOP.

If he can do both of those things, he stands a chance to be in the running for the White House in 2016, whether the Bruce Healey COMMUNITY PRESS far right likes it or not. GUEST COLUMNIST How has Mr. Kasich pulled this off? There are three basic reasons. First, he has shown genuine compassion for the poor, the sick and the downtrodden. His efforts to increase Medicaid coverage (which would be paid for, to the tune of 90 percent by 2020, by the federal government anyway) to thousands of Ohioans including 26,000 veterans and thousands more with mental illnesses, is both sensible and commendable. He has met with stiff resistance from

conservatives, but has stuck to his principles. Secondly, he has cut taxes and produced a surplus in the state. He has been relentless about cutting expenses and giving businesses incentives to grow in Ohio. He understands that you have to grow your tax base, not grow your taxes. That is a lesson that Washington needs to learn, and I hope Mr. Kasich can take it there one day. Finally, he has seen the hypocrisy. I understand he has deep Christian values that stress compassion for those less fortunate, a respect for life (he has commuted four death sentences, as well as Right to Life issues) and forgiveness. He has supported efforts to reform convicts and education alike. In short, he has read the 10 Commandments. I am not a formally religious man, but I like the

fact he has applied commonly understood, compassionate, Judeo-Christian principles to his work. He hasn’t twisted the Bible to suit his agenda. To his conservative critics I have one thing to say: The train is leaving the station. Start running, you might still get on board. The relentless drumbeat of “no”, the litany of narrow minded opinions on anything from marriage to workers rights to immigration, have cost you two Presidential elections and will cost you the next one as well unless you embrace newer and fairer values. It’s time to recognize that Americans want a fiscally competent, compassionate, fair, and above all, functioning government. Mr. Kasich gets that. Bruce Healey is a resident of Indian Hill.

Blurred lines between movie, reality Several years ago I was teaching mythology. At the first class meeting I told my students that the next session they would be watching a movie about the creation of a god. When the class started there was great anticipation about what they would see. It was a classic movie, filmed in 1934 in in Europe. There was great economic distress due to World War I and a crippling inflation. The recent election seated a charismatic ruler. An early scene shows a labor camp where people are well fed and marched to work in uniforms to a military band with shovels in place of guns on their right shoulders. It shouldn’t have taken you long to figure out that the country was Germany. I saw it first in a class about the Nazi film industry. We viewed a number of films. We also learned that the Nazi party had

operatives stationed outside the theaters when the movie let out. Their job was to interview the patrons and to glorify Edward Levy COMMUNITY PRESS Hitler and the Nazi Party. We GUEST COLUMNIST can be certain that dissent would lead to trouble. The movie shows many scenes of an absolutely adoring populace. One might wonder if these scenes were scripted or if they were real. Either way, they were very effective. There is a very important point to make. The German people were very carefully being indoctrinated and controlled by the Nazi Party. Free benefits such as camping and time away from school for these exciting trips were a big inducement. Those who chose

not to go were given extra work in school with the strictest control. What young child would not take advantage of this adventure? It was clear to the children and their parents that the government provided food and much needed entertainment. What wasn’t clear was that this was just the beginning of the government drawing the population slowly into enslavement to it. History has many examples of the establishment of a dictator. Many begin similar to this. The movie continues with idolizing crowds at every appearance of Hitler. One can only imagine the feeling of recovery (due to the war industry) after losing WWI and the great inflation that followed. Perhaps there was hope after all! Another scene has Hitler preparing to fly to Nuremberg for a party rally. We see him

entering the plane with two generals. The movie shows the shadow of the plane over the city. The image of a cross is not accidental. Later we see Hitler addressing the party faithful in Stuttgart as the great orator he was. Leni Reifenstahl, the cinematographer has him encircled with a halo. At that point, many in my class were gasping in wonder. Yes, Hitler was regarded by many as a God. Perhaps he began to believe it himself. We all know where this led the German people. Is it possible that a leader here could yield to the same self delusion? Could the Constitution be subverted to create a dictatorship? Benjamin Franklin warned of this. The movie is “Triumph of the Will” it is available at the library with English subtitles. Edward Levy is a resident of Montgomery and a former college instructor.

Evaluating what companies stand for How much do you know about the companies that you do business with? Socially responsible investing is a growing movement in which people choose their investments based on how closely a company’s values reflect their own. While socially responsible investing typically encompasses financial investments, shareholder advocacy and community investments, there is also another kind of investment to consider – an investment of one’s time and purchasing power. In today’s world, people are looking for ways to transfer their financial decisions into real impacts that will promote their ideals. That can mean making “green,” “sustainable” or “ethical” investments. It can also mean giving your business to companies – banks, entertainment venues, restaurants – whose stated mission and philanthropic philosophies match your own. Deciding where to do business can involve a variety of

LOVELAND

HERALD

A publication of

considerations, even before you get to the “socially responsible” part. Does a company offer the quality you Steven Alonso desire? How COMMUNITY PRESS are its products rated? GUEST COLUMNIST Does the price work with your budget? How convenient is it to do business? Another big factor is reputation. It’s the bridge that links both practical and socially responsible considerations. Most people want to work with a company that treats customers right; a company they can trust to do the right thing. That can lead to deeper questions about whether a company is socially responsible. With a little research, companies’ corporate culture, vendor and community relationships, environmental practices and more can come into focus. Here are a few tips to get started: » Friends and family. Con-

sult them—they are excellent resources who are often eager to provide feedback about their first-hand experiences. » Online reviews. Specific products are often reviewed on websites like Amazon.com by other consumers and rated on a five-point scale. » Social media. Pose a question on Facebook or Twitter and get answers from a larger pool of individuals. » News media. What stories do you see about this company? Is it positive or negative? » Company websites. Balance what is learned in your media research with what a company produces. Do they have a corporate social responsibility report or an annual report? If so, read them. » Better Business Bureau. Companies are rated for service and quality and their handling of customer issues. » Store-fronts. Visit before you buy. Do they allow you to ask questions? Are the employees knowledgeable? Do they listen to you? Once you make a decision,

re-evaluate it over time. Did the bank you chose deliver on its promises? Did the restaurant’s service and food match your impressions from your research? I know at Fifth Third, we focus intently on living up to our purpose; it has to do with listening to customers and inspiring them with smart financial solutions that continually improve their lives and the well-being of our communities. Our investments in customers, employees and communities – all part of corporate social responsibility – are important to us because they are important to you. The fact is, as a consumer, you have a world of choices to make, and a world of data to help guide you. Companies know that. We know the power you hold, and we don’t just want your business. We also want your respect. Steven Alonso is executive vice president and head of the Consumer Bank for Fifth Third Bancorp.

Loveland Arts Commission hosts annual event

‘Paint the Town’ attracts artists from all over By Jason Hoffman jhoffman@communitypress.com

LOVELAND — The Loveland Arts Commission hosted its annual Paint the Town Art Show in front of Bob Roncker’s Running Spot on West Loveland Avenue June 30. “This gives people a chance to see Loveland through artists’ eyes,” said Lynda Gilcher, president of the Loveland Arts Commission. “It also helps to build camaraderie among artists and bring attention to their work.” The Loveland Historical Society and Pizazz Studio Gift Shop sponsored the Purchase Award – winners are picked and representatives from the historical society and Pizazz pick their favorite painting and pay the artist up to $300 for their work. Margie Lakeburg of Fort Wright, Ky., participating for her second year, won the award from the historical society. “I am really shocked, surprised and honored,” Lakeburg said. “I really enjoy coming here and painting scenery in

Loveland.” Loveland is unique because it offers artists the ability to paint a plethora of different scenery, Lakeburg said. The Pizazz Purchase Award went to Jamie Morath but she was out of town so her father Mike Prell was on hand to accept the award. “The award is great because it offers a really different opportunity to everyone involved,” said Jan Ranard, Pizazz owner. “The paintings are all wonderful.” Artists spent10 days painting scenery in Loveland and one artist and resident said she never misses the Paint the Town event. “This is one of my favorite events in Loveland – I adjusted my vacation time to be here,” Monica Achberger said. “Loveland offers the opportunity to paint everything from the scenic river setting to historic homes and the quaint historic district – it runs the whole gamut and there’s a wealth of opportunities and you never have to paint the same scene twice.” Want to know more about Loveland government and community?

Cobbler, dips make great Labor Day recipes Cleaning out the freezer is never an easy task. I don’t know how I accumulate so much food in there! I ran across a container of sour pie cherries the other day from last year and knew I had to do something with them, and fast. So I made this cherry cobbler. This is really Rita delicious Heikenfeld eaten RITA’S KITCHEN warm with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream and perfect for that Labor Day gathering.

Cherry or berry cobbler

I have made this with blueberries, blackberries and raspberries. Just about any fruit is good. After baking the batter rises up, surrounding the berries.

6 tablespoons butter 1 scant cup flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 3 ⁄4 cup sugar 2 ⁄3 cup milk 2 generous cups cherries or berries (I used sour pie cherries)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In an 8-inch square or 2-quart baking dish, melt butter in oven. Carefully remove and set aside. Whisk flour, baking powder and sugar together. Add milk and stir until just combined. Pour batter into melted butter but don’t stir. Add cherries. Bake 30-40 minutes or until cake portion is golden and berries exude juices.

Layered Greek dip

From Anderson Township reader Linda Smith via Regan Smith Knaus. “One of my favorites,” Smith told me.

8 oz. cream cheese, softened 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning 2-3 cloves garlic, minced 11⁄2 cups prepared hummus 1 cup unpeeled, chopped cucumber 1 cup chopped tomato 1 ⁄2 cup pitted chopped Kalamata olives 1 ⁄2 cup crumbled feta 1 ⁄3 cup sliced green onions Pita or multigrain tortilla chips

Beat cream cheese, juice, seasoning and garlic until smooth. Spread into deep 9-inch pie plate or shallow serving dish. Evenly spread hummus over cream cheese layer, then top, in order, with cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, cheese and onions.

Beer cheese

With Oktoberfest coming soon, I knew the requests for this would start coming in. Depending upon the kind of processed cheese and beer you use, this could be a mild or spicy

cheese dip. This is good with pretzel bread sticks. Blend together until smooth: 8 oz. each: cream cheese, softened, and favorite processed cheese Garlic powder to taste 1 ⁄2 cup room temperature beer

Rita used sour cherries for this cobbler, but has also used blueberries, blackberries and raspberries.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Readers want to know

Bike or Car?

7-Up Cake: For clarification on Diane Byrne’s recipe that I published, the pudding is one 1 oz. box. It is a package contain four servings. Check out my blog for more recipes. Cherry bounce: How much bourbon? Enough to cover the cherries by an inch or so. Some readers use vodka, rum or grain alcohol. The container should be glass, since it’s not airpermeable, with a tight lid. Canning jars work well. A reader wants to use a sugar substitute. I suggested Splenda, but have not tried it.

You make small choices every day.

Tips from readers’ kitchen

Greyhound Restaurant’s pasta Gabrielle: Thanks to the readers who reminded me about this previously published recipe that MaryAnn B. wanted. It’s on my blog.

Can you help?

Poor man’s lobster: I didn’t catch the reader’s name, but she is craving this dish. “It’s made with codfish that you cook in water seasoned with perhaps butter, salt and other ingredients. After it’s cooked, you serve with drawn butter. I would love to have a recipe similar to the one I lost.” Twin Trolley’s BBQ: For Carol E., who loved the sandwich of this now-closed and, I might add, much-loved restaurant. If you have a similar recipe, please share. Manyet’s Bakery cheesecake: Another request from this popular bakery, which was in Newport and now closed. For Pat B. “They had a cheesecake like no other I have ever had that was really great. If in any way you can find that recipe, I would surely appreciate it!”

With something as big as cancer care, why wouldn’t you make your own choice? OHC treats every form of adult cancer or blood disorder. We offer access to more leading-edge clinical research trials than any other community practice in the tri-state area. With more than 60 physicians and advanced practice providers, OHC delivers innovative, compassionate care close to home at 17 convenient neighborhood locations.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Make the best choice for your cancer or blood disorder care. Choose OHC.

Freezing herbs in oil for sauteing: Actually I got this from Amy Tobin when I was a guest on her radio show. For nice sauté oil that you can freeze, pour olive oil into ice cube trays and add a thin layer of your favorite herb(s).

To learn more about the OHC choice, visit ohcare.com or call (513) 751-CARE.

One woman says she wishes she knew because her check was stolen and cashed months ago – and she’s been unable to recover the money.

After doing a lot of investigating on her own, Weismann determined the person who cashed the check had an account at that bank – and that person’s bank account number was written on the back of the check.

Despite all this, Weismann still didn’t have her money back, which caused major problems. “I haven’t been able to pay certain of my bills so I have late fees coming – and my personal account basically is horrible.

NEWSMAKERS Symmes student shares music

Lauren Blumberg of Symmes Township is one of the few Girl Scouts who has followed the full endeavor of her Girl Scouting mission by completing the highest ranked Gold Award. Blumberg, 18, aspires to be a music teacher. She began playing piano at age 5 and over the years has expanded her mastery to include the oboe and bassoon. Blumberg has a passion for imparting her knowledge by teaching those less fortunate. It was a very natural fit for her to partner with the folks of Wesley Chapel Mission Center to accomplish her mission. Wesley Chapel Mission Center in Over-TheRhine is an extension ministry of the United Methodist Church. It was created efforts and love of the members of the former Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church.

Lauren Blumberg practices with Loveland High School's Jazz Orchestra in 2011.FILE PHOTO

From its humble beginnings in Cincinnati in 1802, Wesley Chapel Mission Center continues the practice of loving Jesus and serving others in our Over-the-Rhine community of Cincinnati. Its mission is pretty direct. Blumberg met with Wesley’s Executive Director Becky Costello, who instantly embraced her concept to teach student’s music as part of Wesley’s KLASS (Keep Learning After School) program. KLASS lacked hands-on musical training so this project truly

was a win-win program. A cornerstone of the Girl Scouting experience is to inspire and team with others to make the world a better place. Blumberg has completed her mission and obtained her Gold Award. She was able to share her musical aspirations to those in need, which provides Lauren with a heart touching reward she will never forget. Blumberg, a 2013 Loveland High School graduate, attends Otterbein University and majors in music education.

’ZEROlandfill Cincinnati’ launches its sixth year As part of a continued community recycling initiative, ZEROlandfill Cincinnati invites local artists, educators, students and recyclers to Linden Pointe to take design samples/materials that can be used for various projects. “Take Away Days” are on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon beginning Aug. 24 through Sept. 21 (except Labor Day Weekend) for all teachers, artists, students and the general community.

Architecture and design firms, along with manufacturer’s reps are joining forces to donate expired materials from their libraries. Items such as carpet tiles, fabric swatches, ceramic tiles, plastic laminates & paint chips, wall covering books, and three ring binders are available. All items are free, and there is no limit to how much any one person can take – first come, first served. ZEROlandfill is a community-wide program de-

signed to divert waste from the local landfills and promote re-purposing of unused materials. In the past four years this event has diverted more than 150,000 pounds from landfills. The program runs Aug, 24, Sept 7, 14 and 21 at 4801 Montgomery Road in Norwood, in the small triangular building to the west of Linden Pointe. For further information: www.ZeroLandfill.net.

Loveland dancer excels in Scotland In July, Cami Reid, 9, of Loveland, traveled to Scotland to compete in several Scottish Highland dancing competitions. She attended three competitions, won several medals and a trophy for “Best Overseas Competitor.” The competitions she attended were Luss (at Loch Lomond), Alva and Burntisland. Reid’s mother and grandmother are from Scotland, so she got to visit family members she has never met and tour around with her grandmother. She made lots of friends with children they ran into and they were all fascinated by the young American. Reid began training in Scottish dance at age 2 (mainly because her mother, Louise Reid, is a teacher and judge). She began competing in the Midwest at age 4. Her wins in Scotland helped her move up to the next level of competition. Reid is a student at Allegro Dance Arts in the Eastgate area where she also trains in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop and contemporary dance and a member of the Cincinnati Highland Dancers performance team. She was also selected to perform last year with the Imagination Movers when they performed at the Aronoff. Reid also enjoys cheering for the Milford Eagles youth football team and is in the fourth-grade at McCormick Elementary School in Milford.

Renowned cantor to lead services at Congregation Ohav Shalom Congregation Ohav Shalom in Sycamore Township will welcome renowned cantor Abra-

ham Lubin as the leading the upcoming High Holy Day services. Lubin’s engagement

will begin on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, which starts on the evening of Sept. 4.

He will also perform on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, beginning Sept. 13. Lubin is recognized as one of the leading cantors in the United States. He has appeared in concerts in Israel, England, Canada, the former Soviet Union, and throughout the United States. He was born in London and at a young age, returned to Israel, the birthplace of his family, where he began to show a love and talent for singing. At the age of 8, he sang solo with the famous Rivlin Choir in Jerusalem. Congregation president Randy Slovin says, “We are honored to have someone of Cantor Lubin’s stature sing for us during the High Holy

Days, a time of great reflection for the Jewish community. Knowing that he has performed internationally, recorded cantorial music, and received numerous honors, it is a privilege to welcome him to Ohav Shalom.” Lubin was educated both in London and in the United States. In London, he graduated from the Cantorial School at the London School of Jewish Studies. In addition, he is a graduate of the CollegeConservatory of Music of the University of Cincinnati where he obtained his bachelor’s degree and went on to receive his master of music degree (with distinction) at De Paul University. He also earned the doctor of music degree from the Jew-

Lubin

ish Theological Seminary in New York. Through his career, Lubin has served at synagogues in Dayton, Chicago, and most recently, at Congregation Beth El in Bethesda, MD, from which he retired. Lubin and his wife, Sandy, are the proud parents of three children and eight grandchildren. On the second day of Rosh Hashanah, following services, there will be a luncheon to honor Cantor Lubin. Reservations are required. Contact ohavoffice@fuse.net.

The 2012 Kentucky Health Issues Poll found that three in four Kentuckians would be comfortable with a new type of oral health professional: the Advanced Dental Hygiene Practitioner. It is hoped that the ADHP will increase access to oral health care for the general population, particularly in rural and underserved areas like those that exist in Kentucky, where half of adults lack dental insurance. ADHPs are not licensed in Kentucky. Sarah Walsh, Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky, Jennifer Chubin-

Workforce Interest Group Research Award for Best Poster Abstract. The poster abstract compared Kentuckians’ acceptance of ADHPs to advanced level practitioners with which Kentuckians were more familiar – nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Results showed that acceptance of ADHPs was only slightly less than that for nurse practitioners and physician assistants. In general, respondents who were younger, who had higher incomes, and who were in better overall health were more likely to be comfortable with an ADHP.
