Economic development, community needs top issues Seven vie for four seats on council

LOVELAND — Candidates hoping to earn a seat on Loveland City Council will square off in a contested race with three guaranteed to miss the cut. Each of the candidates were asked to submit a100-word campaign statement to the Loveland Herald, and their answers are below. Candidates are listed in alphabetical order.

David Bednar

“I support maintaining our balanced budget and current service levels without increasing our tax burden. Outsourcing our income tax operation and creating collaborative ventures for fire and EMS service and trash collections have saved the city thousands of dollars.




“I will continue to promote Loveland as a great business opportunity focusing on re-development of historic Loveland and the Loveland-Madeira corridor by bringing in new business to expand our business tax base. “I will continue to support Loveland's leadership position in the use of performance measures in evaluating city services so they remain at the high professional level our residents expect.”

Linda Cox




“Along the campaign trail I have had the opportunity to listen to residents’ concerns and vision for Loveland. “Their feedback shapes my council platform to include the following: Redevelopment of the historic downtown and revitalization of Loveland-Madeira Road, structure redevelopment to capitalize on our many natural resources, such as the Little Miami Scenic River and Bike Trail, a fiscally responsible government that continues to tighten its belt before considering raising taxes, a government that is resident and business



friendly and supportive of special events. “As your council representative, I would work to achieve these goals.”

Pamela Gross

“As a person who has worked in the private sector for years and built a successful accounting practice, I've learned that accomplishments boil down to three things; building healthy relationships based on mutual trust and respect, mastering the See ISSUES, Page A2

Can new fire station be staffed?

Money could be an issue for Miami Township trustees, taxpayers By Keith BieryGolick

MIAMI TWP. — Whoever becomes the permanent fire chief in Miami Township will have land on which to build a new fire station. What they won’t have is a solution for how to staff it. “2014 is going to be a challenge,” said former Fire Chief Whitworth Jim Whitworth. Whitworth retired in August, shortly after trustees spent $275,000 of taxpayers’ money to buy 1.12 acres of land on Sugar Camp Road near Schultz state Route 131. Tax Increment Financing funds were used to buy the land and will also be used to construct the new station, said township Law Director Joe Tracy Braun. “What we have told residents is there are cost concerns here. We can use (Tax Increment Financing) funds to buy fire engines, fire

equipment, but we can’t use (Tax Increment Financing) money to buy people,” said Administrator Larry Fronk. “So we’re looking at how we can restaff to place a station out on (state Route) 131.” Whitworth said hiring additional firefighters is “certainly an option,” but it’s the last option. Runs made by the department have increased by 7 per-

cent since 2009, and revenue from the last safety services levy has decreased about 7 percent, he said. “There’s no reason to expect runs to go down, it’s going to keep going up,” Whitworth said. “The whole concept is a function of what level of service the community wants and what the community is willing to pay for.” The pot of levy money isn’t

growing, said Trustee Mary Makley Wolff at a recent meeting. Inevitably, it seems like a tax-hike request will find its way onto the ballot next year. “It will need to be or we will see a reduction of service,” Whitworth said. Trustee Karl Schultz said officials have had no discussions about a tax-hike request. “We haven’t taken anything

off the table and we haven’t thrown anything on the table at this point,” Schultz said. The township has three stations. One at 6492 Branch Hill Guinea Pike, one at 1154 U.S. 50 and one at 5888 McPicken Drive. “We’re talking about reassignments of personnel,” Whitworth said.

fundamentals and always thinking about the future. “If elected to council, I will create a climate of trust and respect in the way the leadership of Loveland deals with residents and visitors. I will make sure the basics of good government are addressed, and I will have a more strategic view toward what the future will look like in a growing Loveland.”

Barry Kuhn

“I have lived in Loveland for nearly 40 years, and I graduated from Loveland High School in

1980. I do not currently have any experience serving in public office, and I consider that to be an advantage in this election. I will be able to put Loveland’s best interest first, and will not have any agendas that will interfere in that goal. “My main areas of focus will be the preservation of our heritage, revitalization of the LovelandMaderia Road corridor, and balancing the budget without removing some of the “nice to haves” that we enjoy today.”

Ted Phelps

“In order to maintain our quality of living, Loveland has done some belt tightening and has made cutbacks. This is a

necessary and responsible approach. “Voters rejected a modest income tax increase last Fall. It would have allowed the City to avoid many of the cutbacks we have seen. “It is now necessary to broaden the tax base. The focus must be downtown. It is primed to be more of a generator of economic activity. I support all efforts to get the Loveland Station project completed and redevelop the Loveland-Madeira corridor. “We must do more to maintain and recruit businesses.”

Rob Weisgerber

“My focus is to promote the image of the city. Keep local government as

small as possible, Focus on basic services, and maintain a balanced budget. “Provide balance in funding and priorities between basic services and other projects. Improve the cost effectiveness of City services. “Run the city like a business. Provide residents value by using the best practices of public and private sectors. Utilize performance measures and benchmarking and use budget disciplines: margin analysis, revenue forecasting. Stress economic development by completing Loveland Station now. Pursue businesses to fill vacancies and look for opportunities to provide new jobs.”

Staff Continued from Page A1

“It certainly takes people to staff vehicles.” Even without its new station, the department has trouble staffing its aerial fire truck on a daily basis, which is used to reach over setbacks from larger buildings. Options for future staffing have been discussed, Whitworth said, but nothing will be finalized until a new chief is selected. “I think it is just a little early to be at a stage to say how exactly we are going to do that,” Schultz said. “Trustees obviously have approval, but you certainly don’t want to

be in a position where you tell (the new chief) how he is going to do things – we would like to put his or her expertise to use.” Trustees interviewed six candidates for more than four hours recently. While it was an “important day,” Schultz said he didn’t expect to come out of the interviews with a solidified plan for station staffing. Instead, when trustees select a new chief, officials will work with them for “several months” on a manpower plan, he said. “I think the cost of doing things would come out of what our plan will be,” Schultz said. “When we bought the property it did not mean we had a complete game plan for everything. It was just an opportune time to buy the property.” “The township has grown in areas that we need to make sure are cared for,” said Trustee Ken Tracy. “This is why we want to get with the (new) chief. We can’t just look at one area of the township, we need to look at the township as a whole.”

Acting Up presents ‘Children of Eden’ Acting Up Young Performers’ Community Theater of Mason will present “Children of Eden,” a joyous and inspirational musical about parents, children and faith... not to mention centuries of unresolved family business. This story of Adam and Eve and Noah’s Ark will be staged Sept. 27, 28 and 29, at the Mason High School Theater, 6100 Mason-Montgomery Road. With a soaring score by Stephen Schwartz (”Wicked,” “Pippin,” “Godspell”) and a book by John Caird (”Les Mis”), “Children of Eden” is freely based on the story

of Genesis. It is a frank, heartfelt and often humorous examination of the age-old conflict between parents and children. Adam, Eve, Noah and the “Father” who created them deal with the headstrong, cataclysmic actions of their respective children. The show ultimately delivers a bittersweet but inspiring message: that “the hardest part of love…is letting go.” Acting Up’s version of “Children of Eden” will feature storytellers and pairs of animals comprised of approximately 75 talented young performers ages 6 to 18, hail-

ing from throughout the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area. It is directed by Joey Schnell with assistance from Danielle Meo. Jeanne Bilyeu will be vocal director and Alison Rampa will be choreographer. Starring Mason natives Brandon Cole (Adam) and Dane Morey (Noah) and Fort Thomas residents Savannah Slaby (Eve) and Rachel Zimmerman (Mama Noah). Also featuring Gabe Hoyer of Symmes Township as “Father.” Acting Up is an all-volunteer, award-winning, young performers community theater which strives to bring high-qual-

ity, polished theatrical productions to the northwest suburbs. It stresses family involvement and working with the community to provide an enjoyable, educational and enriching experience for all. Acting Up is a member of the Association of Community Theatres of Cincinnati and won 23 Orchid Awards lincluding excellence in choreography, set design, costumes and ensemble.

Milford art, craft show is set The Greater Milford Area Historical Society’s eighth annual Art Affaire – Milford’s premier art and fine crafts show – will be 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, on the grounds of Promont House Museum, 906 Main St., Milford. This year’s Art Affaire will feature more than 65 juried artists exhibiting and selling original works in painting, drawing, photography, paper, collage, ceramics/clay, sculpture, wood, glass, mosaics, mixed media, jewelry, wearable art, fiber art, and basketry. Along with regional area artists, Art Affaire will also feature Kentucky and Michigan artists who are new to the event.

“As a returning Art Affaire artist, I really appreciate the on-going communication that the Art Affaire organizers provide,” said Milford-area jewelry artist, Heidi Vitchner of Bella Rose Jewelry Design. “From the first Call for Artists, to the jury review process, and up to the day of the actual show, they provide on-going updates I can use in my own personal advertising of the event. The entire process is extremely pleasant, friendly and more thorough than other area shows in which I’ve been involved. I love participating in Art Affaire.” Art Affaire will also celebrate the arts of music and writing. This year's slate of musical en-

tertainment features the Clermont Festival Chorale Combo (a new instrumental group), Wild Carrot, The Melissa Smith Group, and The Clermont Chorale (vocal group). Additionally, Art Affaire will conduct a booksigning showcasing a number of local authors and their recent publications. “It’s amazing how we’ve seen the interest in Art Affaire explode over the past few years,” said Donna Amann, administrator, Greater Milford Area Historical Society. “The Art Affaire committee is extremely pleased with the diversity and quality of the work presented for jury review by the participating artists.” CE-0000568834

Eye of Loveland Tiger football looks sharp By Scott Springer

Nate Slagel (47), Luke Waddell (37) and Gunner Lay (2) enjoy the view from the sidelines as the Tigers take a big lead on Oak Hills Sept. 13. SCOTT SPRINGER/COMMUNITY PRESS

IF YOU GO What: Loveland vs. Kings When: 7:30 p.m., Friday, Sept. 27 Where: Loveland High School 1 Tiger Trail Loveland, OH 45140-1976 Fun fact: This school year is the 20th anniversary of the opening of the current building of Loveland High School.

“It’s a great counter punch to Slagel when you can give the ball to a speedster and hit the flank,” Cranford said. Actually, Slagel is far from a slouch at speed, finishing second in the ECC 100 meter dash and winning the long jump. The pair force opposing teams to pick their poison. “They’re very blessed athletes; they’re just different

runners,” Cranford said. “They both have great speed. Nate obviously has a little more power behind him. Luke’s going to have a great four years here.” Luke Waddell is the brother of senior golfer, basketball and baseball player Reid Waddell. An injury to a senior during preseason scrimmages put the freshman in the starting lineup. “He’s well ready physically and mentally,” Cranford said. “Pressure doesn’t bother Luke. He’s done a phenomenal job.” See FOOTBALL, Page A7

Ursuline junior ‘sisters’ come up big By Mark D. Motz

BLUE ASH — Think of a onesyllable word starting in S and ending in T, not used in polite company. Get your mind out of the gutter. The word is “short.” Just don’t use it around Ursuline Academy junior soccer forward Andie Kennard, who claims to be 5-foot-1. “She doesn’t think she is short,” Lions head soccer coach Colleen Dehring said. “She definitely doesn’t play like she is.” While all smiles off the field, Kennard admits to playing with a chip on her shoulder because of her size. “A lot of people think because I’m small they can push me around,” she said. “I use it as an advantage. I like being the underdog.” Another four-letter S-word one ought not use around Kennard is “solo.” She’s all about the team, especially her lifelong partner in crime, fellow Lions junior forward Sara Robertson. Robertson leads the Lions in scoring and is among the Girls Greater Catholic League leaders with her five goals and one assist. “For me, it just takes a lot of passion (to score),” Robertson said. “You have to think you can score and you have to work hard to get the ball in the net.” Robertson and Kennard both began playing soccer after watching their older siblings on the pitch. They’re selfproclaimed sisters themselves now after being teammates from day one, starting in rec

LOVELAND — A year ago, the Loveland High School football team got out to a 4-1 start, but dropped three of their last five to finish 6-4. After the departure of some seniors and coach Andrew Marlatt moving on to Miami University, there were questions of how the Tigers would fare in 2013. Luckily, the Tigers brass hired head coach Fred Cranford away from Fenwick and Loveland’s now out to one of the best starts ever. Having scored 35 points just once in 2012, the Tigers began the season scoring 35, 49 and 35 points. “It’s definitely a great start,” Cranford said. “We’re doing a lot of good things early in the season.” Always known for a bruising running game, the Tigers replaced last year’s starter Graham Peters with junior Nate Slagel. Next to Slagel is a kid who was playing middle school ball last fall - Luke Waddell. “It’s nice to see it moving forward,” Cranford said of his run game. “We’ve got to build some continuity. We’re getting into the ‘meat and potatoes’ of our season now. We’ve got to keep level-headed and go to work.” With Slagel as the feature back in the opening games, Cranford threw a bit of a curve at Oak Hills coach Dan Scholz when he unleashed the ninthgrader with a nose for the endzone.

After a slow start (1-2 in the Eastern Cincinnati Conference and 2-5 overall), the Lady Tigers have fought their way back into contention in the ECC. Over the past two weeks, the team has posted a 5-1 record and have won three straight ECC matches. On Monday, Sept. 9, the Lady Tigers traveled to Indian Hill to face the Braves. After dropping the first game, the team pulled together and won the next three games to seal the win. On Tuesday, Sept. 10, the Lady Tigers were again on the road visiting Glen Este.

dinators. “It’s something we’ve got to look at as a staff and see what we want to nail down,” Cranford said. “Giovanni’s just such an incredible athlete. We’re just looking at options at how he can best fit us as a unit. Drew (Plitt) can spin the football. Hopefully, it’ll pay down the road with Drew

having a few more ‘Friday night lights’ reps.” As productive as Loveland’s offense has been, their defense has answered the bell each time out. In the first three games, the Tigers outscored their opponents 119-20. Against Oak Hills, the Tigers outran the Highlanders 272-42. Charlie Lawler, Mike

Weber and Darren and Chris Sackett are among those flying to the ball. “At some point we’re going to be in some nasty dogfights,” Cranford said. “With what they’re (offense) bringing to the table, we definitely complement each other.” Loveland’s last playoff appearance was in 2002.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR I am a seven-year resident of Loveland. I moved here because of the schools, the community and the small-town atmosphere that has drawn and kept so many other residents. Until it was driven out of town, one of the best things about Loveland was The Amazing Race – a fun, zany, goofy day of foolishness that brought the community together every year for a great charitable cause. I have been a participant or volunteer for every edition – including the 2013 Milford race. Like hundreds of others, I was very disappointed when the race board decided to move the race as a result of the underhanded, despicable behavior of the city manager and his supporters on city council who are up for re-election this November (Rob Weisgerber, Brent Zuch and David Bednar). It is time for significant change in the makeup of Loveland’s governance. For this year’s City Council race, I am a one-issue voter. Linda Cox and Pam Gross will get my votes because of their support of community events and their opposition to the city’s manager’s arrogant treatment of the Amazing Race. I know that I will be joined by many other voters with long memories and short tolerance for civic shenanigans.

Sims a faithful servant

As a resident of Symmes Township for more than 60 years I have observed and worked with a great many persons connected officially with the township, both elected and appointed. One of the most faithful and capable is now a candidate for the position of Symmes Township fiscal officer. After several years of exemplary service as assistant fiscal officer, Carol Sims has been unanimously appointed by the trustees as fiscal officer to succeed John Borchers, now retired. Mr. Borchers has publicly praised her for serving so well as his assistant. As such she is already intimately acquainted with township financial procedures. Her experience and proven ability, her knowledge of the position and commitment to it, combined with the full trust of the trustees, render her unquestionably the best candidate for the position of fiscal

officer. She is not only financially adept, but strictly ethical and thoroughly responsible. I am honored to endorse Carol’s candidacy and urge the residents of Symmes Township to vote for her. She will serve us well in this crucial position.

City officials helped neighborhood

With so much heart-breaking news in the media some days, I thought it would be uplifting to share something encouraging about our City of Loveland. Plus, I want to give credit to the amazing local officials who worked with our community to make this good news possible. For some time, my neighborhood was simply over-run by drug dealers and unscrupulous landlords willing to look the other way. Violent behavior, street fights, and a drugdealing drive through were commonplace in front of my house. Particularly scary was the fear that if we spoke up, we could face retaliation. Finally, the law-abiding citizens in our historic neighborhood banded together and worked with our local government to find a solution. I very much appreciate the positive change we’ve witnessed here in Loveland, and it’s time I publicly thank those who deserve it. An effective coalition was formed and still exists between the residents and multiple departments of the city. My neighbors, our city manager, our chief of police and Councilman Brent Zuch, all deserve special praise in my book for dramatically improving the quality of life in our neighborhood. These three local leaders took our concerns seriously, worked closely with us to launch a successful and prompt response, kept us informed of developments, and continue to work with us to maintain a better and safer environment. Not one to mind parties and noise, the aggressive tactics of those who were causing us pause every time we opened the front door were too much for us to remain silent. We formed a neighborhood watch, worked with our government, and are pleased that our safety and well-being, and most importantly that of our children, is restored. With much gratitude,

Nicole Jordan Loveland

Time to shake up city council


CH@TROOM Sept. 18 question If negotiations fail to secure Syria’s chemical weapons should the U.S. conduct military strikes against Syria? Why or why not?

“If negotiations break down in Syria some sort of involvement needs to be done. But it should be done by the UN not strictly the U.S. This was one of the mistakes made in the second involvement in Iraq. Hopefully the U.S. learned from that move. To this day I am not sure what the UN does accomplish. Go Figure!”


“Heck no! We need to stay out of it! “If we strike then we will just send money and supplies to fix what we destroyed. What's the point?

Kilee Holt

“No. We are not the keepers of the world. The only situation to warrant that would be an attack on the U.S. or Israel, and even then it should be a targeted thing, not years of your troops on foreign soil.

NEXT QUESTION Should college athletes be paid? If so, now much? If not, why not? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to with Chatroom in the subject line.

“This seems to me to be a political move to make the president look like a strong leader. Why haven't he been outraged when 140,000 people were killed in Syria by artilliary? Why hasn't the chemical weapons been addressed before now? Why didn't we take action when our people were murdered in Benghazi? Why have we allowed Iran to have the capabilities to make a nucular bomb? Why are we giving billions of dollars to countries like Pakistan. What about Africa? “We need to be an isolated country for a few years and get our own house in order ... get people back to work, make welfare a "job" that has to be repaid with work, training or

school. “It's time someone else in this world takes care of Korea, Pakistan, and the Middle East. “To put this in perspective, that area of the world has been fighting for thousands of years. What makes anyone thing we can change that?”


“Attacking the Syrian government would be helping Al Qaeda gain a foothold. Al Qaeda is our enemy, it's who we're fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. “Last time I checked providing aid to the enemy was called treason. Seems pretty simple to me!”


“Absolutely not. We are in enough useless wars and we don't need any more. “When will we realize that we can't police the world. There are enough problems at home that we can work on and first and foremost should be finding a good candidate to replace the joke of a president we have in there right now.”


Intelligent reforms to intelligence communities Current events remind us of a long-standing and important debate surrounding national security and personal privacy. Twenty-first century technologies heighten that debate. While these technologies can save untold numbers of lives on the battlefield and here at home, they can also potentially threaten our cherished Brad right to privaWenstrup COMMUNITY PRESS cy. While I oppose meaGUEST COLUMNIST sures that would gut America’s essential counter-terrorism tools, I readily recognize the constitutional concerns that so many of my fellow defenders of liberty have raised. I understand the heightened distrust of government harbored by many Ohioans, and honestly, I share the sentiment myself. The Obama administration has proven through scandal and executive overreach that they too often fail to operate in good faith with the American people. Going forward, the federal government must work to make sure that intelligence gathering activities don’t violate our rights as declared in the Constitution. That’s why I voted for a measure clarifying that no taxpayer funds may be used by the NSA to target an American citizen or store the content of their communications, including phone calls and emails. Citizens of the United States and my constituents in southern and southwest Ohio must have the assurances that their privacy is safeguarded

and their lives protected. Both of these goals are important and neither necessarily outweighs the other. Outlined below are steps that I believe would add additional privacy protections for all of us while maintaining the government’s ability to keep us safe. First, review appropriate provisions of the Patriot Act, with special attention to new technologies and individual privacy. The Patriot Act was written over a decade ago and passed in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks on America. This was a time when text messaging, Skype, Facebook and smartphones either did not exist or were not widely used. While I was not in office when the legislation was last reauthorized, I believe that the legislative branch should re-examine parts of the Patriot Act, addressing the recent technological developments and where they fit within the Act’s authorizing provisions. Second, proactively declassify documents that contain information that no longer jeopardizes the safety of Americans by being revealed. Classified documents play a vital role in protecting our country’s national security, but often intelligence agencies have a tendency to overclassify information. They err on the side of caution, and justifiably so. Yet, as questions about the NSA have arisen, the agency has been able to declassify a number of documents to provide greater transparency and understanding of how intelligence programs actually operate. Third, institute quarterly audits from a private, independent firm that are made available to members of Congress. Our intelligence communities handle massive

394 Wards Corner Road Loveland, Ohio 45140 phone: 248-8600 email: web site:

amounts of information, ranging from the files of Osama Bin Laden’s hard drives to the phone records of terrorist cells. We must ensure that this data is being collected and searched properly and that any actions which breach the law are identified and corrected in a timely manner. This oversight must come from an entity outside the intelligence communities that has the clearance and dedicated resources to review data collection activities. Fourth, determine whether third party, non-governmental companies can securely store data and records. Currently, the NSA collects and stores information on government servers in order to quickly query data when a threat is identified. This raises valid concerns about whether the 4th Amendment is being violated. Instead of government storage, phone and internet companies could be asked to retain their records for a longer period of time. The government would reimburse the private companies for this lengthened storage and establish a system to gather records when legally and constitutionally allowable. The preamble of our Constitution tasks the federal government to “provide for the common defense,” and this core responsibility should not be overlooked when we talk about reforming our intelligence communities. Through deliberate and thoughtful steps, we can ensure the government is able to protect both life and liberty. U.S. Rep. Brad Wenstrup represents Ohio’s 2nd Congressional District. His local office number is 513-4747777.

LOVELAND — For the second time in three years the Greater Loveland Historical Society Museum is hosting an art show displaying work inspired by Nancy Ford Cones. “Three years ago we had 80 entries,” said Jan Beller, executive director of the museum. “It’s really good for the artists to get advertised and get their names out there.” Beller emphasized the show isn’t just for professionals, amateur photographers and artists are encouraged to enter the show, she said. Monica Achberger, Loveland artist and the show’s organizer, said Cones’ photography from nearly 100 years ago is an important part of the city’s history. “We really wanted to bring Nancy into the spotlight,” Achberger said. “We’re preserving history in a situation when it was unheard of for women to do something like that.” The show runs each

weekend from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. during normal museum hours. The Best of Show prize pays $350 and there are four other monetary prizes. For more information, go to or call (513) 6835692. Want to know more about the stories that matter in Love-

Loveland girl hopes to make the jump into 2016 Olympics By Chuck Gibson

Kady Abrahamson is a 15year-old sophomore at Cincinnati Country Day. She is hoping against hope to celebrate her high school graduation competing in equestrian show jumping at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. The Loveland girl loves horses and show jumping. “I started riding when I was first born. I’ve been riding all my life,” Abrahamson said. “I started jumping when I was six, and started jumping competitively when I was seven.” Abrahamson has been jumping ever since. She trained locally with David Beisel of Goshen for the last eight years. He has a large clientele and the two agreed, with her four horses showing in one class, it was time to move her on to the next level; hoping that next level will lead directly to the Olympics. “He thought it was time to get some more personalized attention and to move on to bigger and better things,” she said. “I totally agreed. It was tough; especially because David (Beisel) was like my second dad. I was sad because I had to leave all my friends and I had to leave him. I’m excited because I’m going to Sharn and Scott.” Sharn and Scott are two Olympic riders she trains with in Lexington, Kentucky now.

Kady Abrahamson a Loveland sophomore at Cincinnati Country Day School, hopes to make the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics in equestrian show jumping. PROVIDED

Sharn Wordley competed as a member of the New Zealand team in the 2008 Beijing Olympics; while Scott Keach represented Australia in the 1988 Olympics in Seoul. “They are two incredible riders, and trainers,” Abrahamson said. “They have amazing horses. I knew that they could get me up to the next level.” Getting to the 2016 Olympics is the dream. Abrahamson says everybody at this show level shares the same goal. She was individual Bronze Medalist for the United States Pony Finals in 2012, but admits she’s not at the Olympic level yet. “That’s my goal in my riding career; to get there,” she said.

Others have told her she can get there. Getting there will take a lot of training and good fortune too. It’s not just the rider; you have to have the right horse. The horse has to be athletic, calm, smart and display common

sense. Finding a horse and rider combination that can go all the way is not easy. “I’m 15 so I need to start now looking for that horse,” she said. Basco H2, Irish Hunt, Chalvino Z, and S&L Icebreaker are the four horses she currently

shows. She thinks Basco H2 may be the right horse. Riders have to be 18 just to compete in qualifying events. Abrahamson won’t turn 18 until March 2016. That leaves her a small window to qualify, be chosen, and compete in the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. Her inspiration comes from Reed Kessler – who also trains in Lexington, KY – the only U.S. equestrian to turn 18, qualify, and compete in the Olympics all in the same year when she did it in the 2012 London Olympics. Abrahamson trains four hours daily after school, eight hours each day on the weekends and through the summer. It’s not all riding, she goes to the gym for personal training twice a week, and has to care for the horses too. “I love the animals. It’s just fun for me,” she said. She hopes that love, and having fun, will lead her on a very special Olympic ride in Rio de Janeiro in 2016. Kady knows she and Basco H2 will be very young and might not make it in 2016. She has no plans to give up though. After all, she and Basco H2 will be older and more experienced for the 2020 Olympics. “I have a long road ahead of me,” Abrahamson said. “Hopefully in three years I will be at that level, but there are only four people from each country that go.

Warm up with dinner rolls, pot pie Dairy-free, cholesterol-free, low-fat dinner rolls

1 cup chicken broth Dash pepper

Melt margarine, add flour and mix well. Add stock, cook and stir until creamy. Add pepper.

Don’t be squeamish about the ingredients here. Powdered creamer is used by more than a few bakers to achieve a nice-tasting, dairy-free dinner roll. Check out the photo of the batch I made. The diabetic exchange is 11/2 starch, 1/2 fat for each roll. You can do this by hand or machine. 1 tablespoon rapid-rise yeast plus a couple pinches sugar (don’t use regular active yeast) 21⁄4 cups warm water (110-115 degrees) 1 ⁄3 cup sugar 1 ⁄3 shortening 1 ⁄4 cup powdered non-dairy creamer 21⁄4 teaspoons salt 5-6 cups bread flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dissolve yeast and pinches of sugar in warm water. In a mixing bowl, add sugar, shortening, creamer, salt and 5 cups flour. Add yeast and mix well on low speed. Turn to medium and beat until smooth. Add more flour if necessary to make a soft, but sticky dough. Either knead it for 6-8 minutes by machine or by hand. If doing by hand, turn out on floured surface. Knead until smooth, like a baby’s bottom. Place in bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat top. Cover and let rise until doubled, about one hour. Punch down and turn out onto lightly

There’s not a week that goes by that I don’t hear from someone telling me about a new recipe they’ve tried, or a treasured one they want to share. It’s all about food, family and friends. Laurie Bredenfoerder’s story about her homemade lasagna is one of those priceless gems. After she read my recipe for easy lasagna using no-cook lasagna Rita noodles, Heikenfeld she told RITA’S KITCHEN me it’s not so bad to use the no-cook noodles, but “They may be hard to find or more costly than the mundane ones. If so, I can do much better.” Laurie sent me her recipe for her family’s favorite, which she has been making for 25-plus years using any kind of lasagna noodle right out of the box. She’s never had a problem with using them and her lasagna turns out perfect, every time. “Great for a large gathering and this may well be the perfect lasagna recipe. It’s a legend in our family”, she said. Unfortunately, the recipe is too long to share here so I’ll put it on my blog. But don’t let that hold you back. I can’t wait to try Laurie’s recipe and I want you to try it, too.

After approximately 220 friends and supporters of CSC dined at the Mariemont restaurant Monday, March 11, manager Lisa Hopkins, executive chef and operating partner Sean Daly, and Chef Brandon Fortener presented a $3,150 donation to CSC executive director Rick Bryan, to help fund the nearly 250 programs a month that CSC offers completely free of charge to people with cancer, their families and friends, and cancer survivors as they fight the disease. Dating back to the restaurant’s first CSC benefit dinner in 1994, The National Exemplar has donated more than $53,000 to help underwrite the organization’s free programs of support, education, and hope. “We are so fortunate to have the long-term support of a partner like The National Exemplar,” said Rick Bryan, CSC’s executive director. “The only things better than their dedication and generosity are their delicious food and wonderful atmosphere. This is one fundraiser our supporters truly look forward to every year.”

Marvel is dancing on a ship on a stage while Epiphany is dancing on a stage on a ship. “Every day I’m in a different place, and every night I’m on stage. I get to do what I love and experience the Caribbean sun,” Epiphany said. “I live on a ship, and internet access is poor, but I’m practically on a paid vacation. On the other hand, I think I’d rather be in a show about a ship; it’s so much easier to pretend
