Black bear seen in Symmes Township By Amanda Hopkins

Symmes Township may have a new resident that has been causing some concern. Symmes Township Administrator Gerald Beckman said there have been three reported sightings of a black bear near Symmes Township Park and the Rozzi property on Lebanon Road. Beckman said the witnesses are credible and residents have been warned. A warning has been sent out through the Loveland Symmes Fire Department’s Code Red phone system and fliers have been post-

Consultants float development ideas

Extended bike trail, indoor entertainment among proposals By Jeanne Houck

Why not transform the area around Loveland Lanes and Castle Skateland on Loveland-Madeira Road in Loveland into an indoor entertainment district? How about extending the Little Miami Scenic Bike Trail in Loveland over the bridge to Riverside Drive, around Twightwee Avenue and onto Loveland-Madeira Road? And what if Loveland could recruit a college satellite campus into some of the city’s empty retail space? These are just a few of the ideas proposed by The Resurgence Group of Blue Ash, urban-planning consultants Loveland recently engaged to help with the development of Loveland Station, a downtown revitalization project, and of underused property at city gateways such as the LovelandMadeira Road corridor and Riverside Drive. Loveland is hosting a community party 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thurs-

What about a retail incubator in Loveland? Here are some ideas the Resurgence Group of Blue Ash, urbanplanning consultants, have for Loveland: • Convert an unused building on Broadway Street into a bike rental or storage business. • Establish a retail incubator. • Create a debit card for use among cooperating businesses. • Adopt green construction policies to attract young professionals

and environmentally committed businesses. • Change eyesores on Riverside Drive into green space and attractive businesses. • Expand the art community using member of the Loveland Art Studios on Main. • Increase Loveland Area Chamber of Commerce participation in marketing Loveland. By Jeanne Houck

restaurants, shops, professional offices and townhomes planned for a three-acre site on the west side of Second Street between West Loveland Avenue and Broadway Street. • City and business officials have said that because of the economy, it may take considerable time for plans for Loveland Station to come to fruition. Assistant Loveland City Manager Gary Vidmar and the Resurgence Group told Loveland City Council Tuesday that they have come up with a program they hope can produce positive development results more quickly and citywide. “While no one can predict

when and how the global economic situation will improve, it is possible for a community to equip itself with every available tool to substantially increase the odds for not only its economic survival, but its long-term economic stability,” Vidmar said. The Resurgence Group – whose fee is being negotiated – is comprised of former Loveland residents Steve and Linda Armsey and is aligned with firms conversant in real estate strategies with ties to developers, finance, urban planning, winning grants, marketing and the environment. It believes Loveland must be

Old Glory in the spotlight By Jeanne Houck

Old Glory will not be fluttering in the dark over Loveland City Schools’ property anymore, thanks to school board member Linda Pennington. Pennington recently expressed concern to Superintendent John Marschhausen about the district’s flags not being lit overnight. He’s arranging for spotlights to be placed at every flagpole. “It is appropriate that our flags, if they fly during overnight hours, are properly lighted,” Marschhausen said. It’s not just appropriate, it’s a federal law. U.S. Code says, “It is the universal custom to display the flag only from sunrise to

sunset on buildings and on stat i o n a r y flagstaffs in the open. H o w e v e r, when a Pennington patriotic effect is desired, the flag may be displayed 24 hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness.” Pennington said questions from veterans prompted her to approach Marschhausen about the flags. “Veterans from the Loveland Eagles would ask me why our flags at the schools were not lighted and why they were sometimes left out overnight,” Pennington said. “I believe it is important

Clermont water and sewer offering e-bills Community Press Staff Report

The Clermont County Water Resources Department is offering customers of county water and sewer services an opportunity to go paperless. Citizens can receive their bi-monthly bills electronically. The same information that is available on the bill currently received will be available through e-mail. To begin receiving an ebill, Clermont water and sewer customers are encouraged to send an email to WaterSewer@ To set up an e-bill, customers will be asked to provide their name, account number, address, phone number and

e-mail address. During the first few months of this new service, customers will receive both bill versions. For those who do not want to receive the e-bill, no action is necessary. According to the Javelin Strategy and Research firm, if every American household viewed and paid bills online, it could reduce solid waste in U.S. landfills by more than 800,000 tons a year. It also could help curb the release of greenhouse gases by 2.1-million tons. A recent CheckFree Consumer Bill Payment Trends survey,, found that 85 percent of those questioned said paying bills online saves money related to paper and stamps.

Unlucky No. 13 for Loveland soccer Boys undefeated in 12 matches

Junior varsity team also undefeated

The Loveland High School boys’ varsity soccer team isn’t the only Tigers soccer squad having success this fall. The junior varsity team is 10-0-2 (entering play Oct. 2). In fact, Dunlap said the JV team has at times motivated varsity. “We have a very talented group of freshmen and sophomores with a lot of discipline,” he said. “The younger guys are very determined and hardworking, and the older guys see that and it inspires them.” The JV team is coached by Tino Mam.

By Tony Meale

The 13th match of the season was an unlucky one for the Loveland High School boys’ soccer team. The Tigers, which fell 21 to league-rival Milford Oct. 2, had been undefeated through their first dozen games. Loveland is now 8-1-4 (5-1-4). “It was something I didn’t expect,” Loveland head coach Mike Dunlap said. “Anytime you’re a high school soccer coach, you expect one or two games where the guys don’t show up. But going undefeated was a goal of theirs since the preseason.” And for 12 matches, Loveland lived up to it. “I attribute this run to the boys’ motivation, determination and will to win,” Dunlap said. And never was that more apparent, perhaps, than a home match against Sycamore Sept. 11. The


Loveland High School junior midfielder Matt Beachy has helped the Tigers to a No. 2 city ranking. Tigers trailed 2-0 before rallying for a 2-2 tie. “I realized how much fight we had,” Dunlap said. Loveland has gotten stellar play of senior Tyler Beachy, whose nine goals are tied for third in the Fort Ancient Valley Conference East division. His 22 total points are fifth.

“He’s been the staple of our team,” Dunlap said. “We like to run pretty much everything through him. He steps up when he needs to, he knows when to take control, he knows when to distribute – he’s very smart. I think the other guys feed off that.” Another Loveland leader

is Matt Beachy, Tyler’s brother. “The way they hook up going down the field is impressive,” Dunlap said. “They make very fluid passes to each other, and I think Matt takes a lot of pressure of Tyler.” Dunlap has also been impressed with Kyle Mattes (two goals, two assists), Karl Mattes and junior captain Austin Klueh (three goals, one assist). Nathan Boucher, meanwhile, has four goals and three assists, and Marty Bixler has netted three and dished two. Other contributors are Alex Austin, Johnny Williams, Alex Burpee, Erik Michelfelder, Jon Clifton, A.J. Combs, Clark Crawford, Rob Demoret, Chase Giles, Adam Howaniec, Brandon Johnson, Joe Misiti, Jake

Pickens and Brian Snyder. Loveland, ranked No. 2 in the city, closes the season with three straight home matches against tough opponents – league-rival Turpin (Oct. 7), GMC power and No. 1-ranked Mason (Oct. 9) and league-rival Anderson (Oct. 13). As a result, Dunlap said his team isn’t looking ahead to the postseason just yet. “Our team’s mindset is to remain focused, play under control and play our game,” he said. “We don’t want to get caught playing anybody else’s (style of play).” Dunlap also credited his squad’s unselfish play. “We’re not a team with a lot of individual talent,” he said. “We have guys that other guys play off of, but this has most certainly been a team effort.”

Kyles, Lay lead struggling Tigers By Tony Meale

Every Friday night, Wesley Kyles goes out and catches passes. A lot of them. In fact, the Loveland High School senior wide receiver leads the entire Fort Ancient Valley Conference in receptions (31) and receptions per game (5.2) and is fourth in the FAVCBuckeye in yards (330). “It’s my coaching,” Kyles said, explaining his propensity to catch passes. “We’ve got a good wide receivers coach (Corey Partridge). He played for Bowling Green, and he’s worked with me on my routes and showed me a lot of tricks to get open.” It’s working. Kyles, of course, isn’t the only Tiger catching balls this year. Junior wideout Trevor Henderson is third in the FAVC-Buckeye in yards (374) and receiving touchdowns (four) and fourth in catches (19).

Henderson is Loveland’s deep threat, while Kyles specializes in underneath routes. “It’s a great combination for our offense,” Kyles said. Orchestrating the passing attack is sophomore quarterback Ryne Terry, who was given the unenviable task of replacing 2009 FAVC-Buckeye CO-Player of the Year Adam Engel. Terry has 511 passing yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions. “I think he’s done pretty good,” Kyles said. “He’s under a lot of pressure back there, but I think he’s done fine.” Unfortunately for Terry, the Tigers have struggled gaining yards on the ground this season. They rank 15th of 17 teams in the FAVC in rushing yards per game (95.8) and yards per attempt (3.1) and are tied for last in rushing touchdowns (one). Loveland has also had issues in the red zone.


Loveland’s Evan Beck tries to escape the pursuit of Anderson’s Matt White (89). “Our offense is moving the ball between the 20s, but we’ve been stalling in the red zone,” said Loveland senior Andrew Lay, who sees time at quarterback, running back and wide receiver. The Tigers graduated their entire starting offen-

sive line last year and are averaging only 13 points per game. The new starting linemen are seniors Jake Cornett and Tom Demers, as well as junior Jordan McNally, CJ Friedhoff and Jacob Alten. “I think the guys are doing great for being firstyear starters, but it helps to have experience in the red zone,” Lay said. “We’ve got weapons. We just need to make plays.” Loveland has lost four straight after starting the season 1-1. The Tigers have especially struggled since falling 27-24 in overtime to Oak Hills Sept. 10; they’ve lost to Kings, Mount Healthy and Anderson by a combined 76 points. “We were so fired up against Oak Hills because we were tired of hearing about how bad they were (going to beat) us,” Lay said. “But against Kings (a 29-0 home loss Sept. 17), we came out flat and just weren’t ready to play.”

Kyles agreed. “Our intensity and focus just wasn’t there,” he said. “We came out dead.” The Tigers started well against Mount Healthy Sept. 24, notching their first rushing touchdown of the season and going up 7-0 in the first quarter. But they allowed 24 unanswered points and lost 38-17. “We had a great first quarter,” Lay said. “We could’ve been up 14-0, but we kept stalling in the red zone.” Against Anderson Oct. 1, the Tigers led 3-0 before allowing 20 unanswered points in a 43-17 loss. Loveland is allowing 28.5 points per game. One of the Tigers’ top playmakers has been junior linebacker Joe Moran, who is fourth in the FAVC-Buckeye with 2.5 sacks. Loveland (1-5, 0-1) plays at Winton Woods (51, 1-0) Oct. 8 before returning home for a game against Harrison Oct. 15.

2 ties, 2 shutouts for Loveland men’s soccer The following are submitted recaps of the recent boys’ soccer action.


Loveland 7, Little Miami 0 – Little Miami kept the Tigers off the scoreboard early Sept. 16, but Loveland put the Panther defense on notice. In the 13th minute, Austin Klueh scored from 12 yards out, center net, off a ball passed in by Alex Burpee. Four minutes later, A.J. Combs sent a ball in to Tyler Beachy who headed the ball in from inside the 6, for Loveland’s second goal. The Panthers countered for the next 15 minutes requiring Tiger keeper Rob Demoret to deflect a shot up and over the top of the net. Jake Pickens shut down two separate breakaway runs by Little Miami in the 28th and 30th minutes. With 5:09 on the clock, Loveland was issued a yellow card. Tyler Beachy and Joe Misiti teamed up to score a third goal for the Tigers just before the half ended. With 15:58 remaining, Loveland’s

passing game paid off. Karl Mattes scored from 10 yards out – just wide of the right post – off a ball from Marty Bixler. Bixler chipped one over the Panther’s goalie from 6 yards out at 13:52. Next, Austin Klueh passed a ball to Kyle Mattes who worked it in and scored from 12 yards out on the left side with 12:35 to play. Loveland’s seventh goal came off a pass from Joe Misiti to Alex Burpee, who drove the ball in from just outside the right post. 4:53 ran off the clock with Loveland getting the 7-0 shutout. Loveland 0, Lakota East 0 – Loveland took on the No. 1 ranked Lakota East Thunderhawks on Sept. 18. The Tigers put pressure on the Lakota East defense throughout the match, with the majority of ball possession and shots on goal belonging to Loveland. Offense created many opportunities, but came up short when finding the net. Tiger defenders went into overdrive on this one, keeping the Thunderhawks chances at the Tiger’s net

to a minimum. Each team received a yellow card during the 2nd half. Loveland had a late-game surge of adrenaline with 3:50 remaining in the match, sending in a goal-front pass which was shot; but blocked. The Thunderhawks goalie was under heavy pressure then, as this resulted in a series of three consecutive corners from the right side. The Tigers shot low on a rebound and took two headers at close range; but could not get the ball past the Lakota East goalie. The Tigers and Thunderhawks ended the match even at 0-0. See the Tigers finish out their season at home against Turpin Oct. 7, 9 and 13.

Junior varsity

Loveland 7, Little Miami 0 – Marty Bixler sent two goals into the Panther’s net with only 6 minutes elapsed from the game clock Sept. 16. Olisa Okafor assisted the first goal and Nick Ranieri assisted the second. Twelve minutes later, Bixler made it a hat-trick, with a third goal for the

Tigers. The Panthers struggled to maintain ball possession offensively, and Loveland kept constant pressure on the Little Miami defense. Kyle Jarc scored next for Loveland off a pass from Brad Faust as the clock ticked down to 9 minutes left in the half. Two minutes later, Faust got a goal of his own, curving a ball into the net from the left off his own cornerkick. The score was 5-0 Loveland at halftime. Loveland added two more goals in the second half. Ethan Conte put No. 6 into the net with 24 minutes remaining and Marty Bixler scored his fourth goal of the match from 8 yards out from just right of center. Loveland 2, Lakota East 2 – Lakota East hosted Loveland Saturday, Sept. 18. Lakota East’s bench was issued a yellow card early on and after 29 minutes and several long forward passes with breakaways that went unconverted by either team, it was

looking like the game would go to the half tied at 0-0. However, with 6:40 on the clock, Ethan Conte sent a cornerkick in from the left side and found Matt Vogt, who finished for Loveland, breaking the deadlock. Lakota East increased their intensity and came out strong to start the second half, requiring John Lundeen to make a timely save for Loveland at 33:37. The Thunderhawks at 25:20 sent one high into the Tigers’ net and tie the game. Loveland answered quickly with a goal at 24:29 by Ethan Conte, working a rebound off the post. Fierce action continued as John Lundeen pulled down a high shot, landing heels to the goal line, denying the Thunderhawks an attempted goal at 17:12. Loveland surrendered a second goal then, with 13:20 remaining as Lakota East followed-up a blocked shot off a Tiger wall, and scored from 20 yards out.

Sept. 29 questions

Symmes Township Board of Trustees are in talks to start a pilot program that would grant a 100 percent tax abatement for 10 years to a business that brings 750 or more jobs to the township. Do you think this will help attract business to the township? Why or why not? “It is a critical time for Symmes Township to pursue new businesses and reinvestment by existing businesses in the township through tax incentives. “We have a great community, but much of our commercial and office space is ‘dated’ and while it was all Class ‘A’ space when built, it is now for the most part Class ‘B’ or ‘C’ space due to age. “Attracting new businesses to fill, expand and renovate these spaces will improve all real estate values in the township, including residential as employees eye the benefits of our great community, including minimized governance, no earnings taxes, good schools, great parks, a reliable service department and convenience to other amenities in the region including shopping, sports and recreation. “The program proposed by the trustees will be successful if aggressively and diligently pursued with communication to and through residents, existing businesses and the local and regional Chambers of Commerce. “As we emerge from ‘The Great Recession’ and completion of the Montgomery Road project, the timing is perfect to put Symmes at the top economically. “The story is that Symmes Township is a great place to live, work and play!” J.O.

Have you or someone you know been affected by bedbugs. What precautions are you taking? What solutions have you tried? “A friend told us it took a year for him to get rid of them in his house. He got them in a hotel. We no longer unload suitcases into bureau drawers in hotel rooms and we check mattresses for the signs. So far, we have been lucky not to have any.” F.S.D. “Thank God we haven’t any problems with bedbugs, nor do I know anyone who has them. I’m keeping my fingers crossed. “We don’t frequent hotels or motels, and don’t stay overnight with other people very much, and we don’t have people visiting much either, except kids and grandkids. Hopefully we will be spared.” B.B.

Croswell for commissioner

As I travel Ohio as part of my job and as a board member of a regional organization, I am pleased at how many people complement Clermont County about how well the county has handled the difficult economic conditions of the past two years. Economic conditions such as these require the very best in our leadership. We are very fortunate to have qualified county leadership that have the strength and integrity to manage the financial minefield in the face of heavy political pressure, and who do not just talk about, but exhibit their dedication to fiscal conservatism. Scott Croswell has a long history of fiscal conservatism. Scott has demonstrated our values; worked to create a climate for job creation, and to reduce the size and cost of government. Scott has served us exceptionally well over the past nearly eight years. He has a proven track record.

Vote for children

I am currently working with several children who are in foster care for various reasons. The services provided for these children,

parents, and foster parents are very important. Some children are able to return home because their families received counseling and parenting classes from Children’s Protective Services. Without these supportive services, children placed into foster care might not receive all the help they need to support their various delay/developmental issues. This is why I am encouraging everyone to vote “yes” for Issue 5

A pledge to use tax Record proves fiscal conservatism dollars effectively Last month while he was campaigning in Clermont County, I had the opportunity to talk with John Kasich about his plan to help turn things around in Ohio. As Kasich has been traveling around the state, he has been telling people that we need to create a climate more conducive to business relocation and job creation in Ohio. Kasich has repeatedly said that this can only be accomplished by balancing the budget and shrinking the size of government. I could not agree more with John Kasich. For the past eight years, I have had the honor and privilege of serving as your county commissioner. During that time, I have worked hard to promote the ideals of limited government, lower taxes and job creation through economic development. Like John Kasich, I believe that if we do not ensure Clermont County is a place where businesses want to locate and believe their companies will thrive, we will never see an increase in well paying and stable jobs. This is one of the reasons I led the fight to redevelop the old Ford Plant in Batavia to attract new jobs there. This is also one of the reasons I was not afraid to cut bureaucratic budgets during my time in office even though it meant I would not receive a political party endorsement. We must identify government waste, and when we see it we cannot be afraid to do the right thing and make the necessary cuts even if it impacts your own party leaders. Too often politicians place their allegiance to party leaders and

special interests ahead of the people who elect them. I have refused to do that in the past, and I will not do it in the future. When I first R. Scott ran for commisCroswell III sioner, I told people that my camCommunity paign was about Press guest people – not policolumnist tics. I still believe that today. If entrusted to return as your county commissioner, I pledge to continue to lead the fight in balancing the budget, cutting the size of government and making sure the money you entrust to your county government is well spent. I will also make sure these cuts are done in such a way that we protect the vital services you have come to expect from your county government. Ensuring we continue to have one of the finest law enforcement agencies, making sure the needs of our seniors are taken care of, protecting our children and remembering the debt we owe to our veterans are all priorities. I don’t have to promise to voters that if elected I will be a fiscal conservative because I have an eight-year record to prove it. If reelected as your county commissioner, I will continue to be a watch dog of your money and prevent it from being spent foolishly. R. Scott Croswell is a resident of Miami Township and has served as Clermont County Commissioner for the past eight years. He is seeking re-election Nov. 2.

“A penny saved is a penny earned.” Those were words were first penned by Benjamin Franklin, but I think that sentiment still holds true today. In this economy people are trying to do more with less and being fiscally responsible is an absolute necessity. Government needs to be aware of the needs of the people they serve and use taxpayer dollars in the most effective ways possible. About 30 years ago, my partner and I began a small business here in Clermont County. Over the years, with hard work our business has grown. I want Clermont County to be a business-friendly community and I want to see new jobs for our residents. I believe this can be done with openness and integrity. Tax dollars need to be used to keep our communities safe. There needs to be consequences for crime and the entire jail should be available so people can serve out the sentences they are given for their crimes and not given house arrest just because there isn’t room at the jail. People need to know that the communities they live in are safe places to raise their families. As I have traveled throughout the county I have had the opportunity to listen to what is impor-

tant to the residents who live here. I have found many people who share my beliefs of conservative, moral and fiscal values and I am Archie energized by the growing number Wilson of people who are Community supporting me. Press guest I want to make columnist a difference in making this county better than it is today for our children and grandchildren. This November the voters of Clermont County will have the opportunity to make a change in county government. I believe that hard times require overtime and I am willing to put in the time necessary to get the job done. I am asking for your vote and your support in my bid for commissioner. 2If you have any questions please feel free to call me at 4030405. Archie Wilson is a candidate for Clermont County commissioner Nov. 2. He is a resident of Batavia Township and currently serves as a township trustee.

Team Ryan builds hope for Loveland boy, family By Chuck Gibson

Ryan Newbanks is 15 years old and a student at Loveland High School. Like a lot of boys his age, he enjoys challenging his brothers, Jack, 12, and Nick, 10, to an intense match on the latest video game. That’s where the similarity to other boys ends for Ryan. He has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. “Duchenne is the No. 1 most common, most deadly form of muscular dystrophy,” said Cheryl Newbanks, Ryan’s mom. “There is no cure. It has the same progression as before the Civil War.” As a rule, boys get it, girls don’t. Boys with the disease fail to produce dystrophin, the protein necessary to maintain the integrity of muscle, essentially causing their muscles to implode. The onset of Duchenne is usually diagnosed at 3- to 5-years-old. Ryan was formally diagnosed at age 5. “They diagnosed this,” she said. “They don’t give you a lot of hope. Here I am with the youngest 4 months. They just dropped a bomb on us.” Doctors sent them home with the harsh reality there is no cure. His condition would progressively worsen. Unable to use braces to continue walking, Ryan was in a wheelchair by age 8. Each progression of the disease brings on another round of grieving. “They hit a new level, like going into the wheelchair,” Cheryl said. “You go into a depression, you grieve that and then you come to accept it. He hits another plateau, the whole family grieves that, it becomes normal and you live that. That is how it goes.” He was small enough for them to carry him upstairs. With the steroid treatments, he got bigger and heavier. They couldn’t continue to carry him. “He couldn’t go upstairs with his brothers,” she said. “In the midst of all that, Kevin lost his job. My husband worked for WorldCom. WorldCom went under.” They lost his entire 401K and fell behind on their mortgage. They sold their home before losing it. They lost just about everything else. They found a house on Red Bird Road in Loveland. They made plans to alter the home built in 1910 to meet Ryan’s needs. “With the money we had, we could afford to buy

Ryan Newbanks enjoys a laugh with some of the many Team Ryan volunteers helping to makeover his room addition. His dad, Kevin, is third from right side. the materials,” Cheryl said. A construction company (Cheryl would not name the company) failed in its promise to help. They left a mess. The Newbanks’ were stuck. Ryan was in desperate need of surgery to correct scoliosis which compromises his breathing. Their oldest son, Josh Newbanks, 23, a Moeller and U.C. graduate, wrote a letter to the Moeller Alumni. “Here we are stuck in this bind,” she said. “Josh wrote this really touching letter, ‘I promised my brother he was going to have this surgery.’ Turnbull-Wahlert Construction-Stuart Turnbull got hold of the letter and said I want to help this kid out.” The surgery was set for last November when everything fell apart. It was reset for this Sept. 9 this year. “Doctors said the surgery can’t be postponed anymore,” Cheryl said. “Respiratory problems are the biggest threat to the life of Duchenne MD patients.” Active church members and strong believers, the Newbanks relied heavily on their faith. They knew, as Christians, they weren’t exempt from trials. Cheryl believed God had a purpose and “something great would come out of it,” but this began to take a toll. “I think so many years of dealing with that has kind of worn our faith down,” she said. Then Stuart Turnbull sent a Turnbull-Wahlert crew to do the job. They fixed mistakes made by the other company and framed up the addition. A friend of Cheryl’s told her personal trainer, who shared the story with David Eltringham. Eltringham is an active member of Epiphany

Mike Michelson, Sam White, Sean O’Toole and Mike McCurdy provided electricians, plumbers, framers and other skilled labor. “I just mentioned it to

thing. We feel like there is hope.” Since the end of May, the spirit of the volunteers was unwavering as they toiled tirelessly through the relentless heat and humidity of the summer. Known as “Team Ryan“in the regular stream of e-mail updates sent by Eltringham, they continue with their labor of love to transform the addition to meet Ryan’s future housing and care needs. Team Ryan didn’t just build a home, they built faith and hope in a future for Ryan. “A lot of people did this expecting no recognition,” Cheryl said. “A lot of people did really great things for us and they deserve the recognition!” On Thursday, Sept. 9, doctors performed more than eight hours of surgery on Ryan Newbanks to relieve the severe scoliosis that threatens his ability to breathe. Although Ryan’s surgery went well, he has had some post surgery complications. He has a long road of recovery before he’ll see his new home. “I know at the end of this project everybody is going to go home and we’re still going to live the heartache,” Cheryl said. “It’s given us hope to not feel so all alone. There are people who care.”

Courage is doing the good we’re afraid to do Courage doesn’t always involve brawn and muscles. It does involve a strength of character and integrity. It causes us to reach for rightness even in the face of fear, disapproval or overwhelming odds. The word courage arose from the Latin word cor, meaning heart. To have courage, “you gotta have heart,” as an old song lyricized. Courage is the virtue crucified in the middle between two thieves – cowardice and rashness. Cowardice is running away from all dangers and hard times; rashness is facing danger in a careless way that masks self-centered motives. In the past, courage was chiefly associated with men. It was seen in the risks they took during battle to defeat an enemy, help a fellow soldier, or defend innocent people. Now, with a better understanding of courage, we don’t hesitate to attribute it in various bold and subtle ways to women as well. To be courageous involves three general characteristics: (a) a willful and intentionally chosen act despite the presence of fear;

(b) it involves substantial danger, difficult, or risk to the person choosing Father Lou it; (c) it is Guntzelman primarily motivated Perspectives to bring about a noble good or morally worthy purpose. How many kinds of courage are there? Three types are acknowledged. Physical courage. It is overcoming the fear of physical harm or possible death for the sake of a noble goal such as defense of country or our family, or to save someone from danger or criminal threats. For example, we hear in the news of a man or woman risking their life to pull someone from a burning car. Recently a captain posthumously received the Medal of Honor for risking his life while placing his wounded men in a helicopter. Moral courage. This is overcoming the fear of social ostracism or rejection in order to maintain ethical

integrity. For example, the history of civil rights recalls the day Rosa Parks, a southern black woman, took a seat in the front of a bus when a prejudiced society said “her place” was in the back. This type of moral courage can occur in many different situations. It happens whenever an individual stands up to someone with power over him or her, and does so for the greater good. The result is the risk of social disapproval from others. Psychological, or vital, courage. Within the past 150 years a third kind of courage has been recognized by psychologists. It means overcoming the fear of losing one’s psyche (the feeling that one is disintegrating within – colloquially, losing it.) It can occur as we struggle against the fear of disintegration or death while trying to achieve greater wholeness and mental health. It is the kind of courage demonstrated by an addict overcoming his or her addiction; or a person abused as a child working to overcome deep psychological fears to become a loving and productive adult.

Why focus on courage today? In “The Psychology of Courage,” edited by Pury & Lopez, it’s stated: “It is increasingly difficult to face an unpredictable future without being able to call on courage if needed.” Over the years I have been honored to meet many people of courage. They weren’t publicly known because for us ordinary people our most noteworthy victories occur within, out of view of camera, newsprint and applause. At times we may be the only one who knows that they exist. To all these wonderful and victorious people I apply the following anonymous quotation: “Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow.’”

There’s a chicken in every pot pie recipe I know whenever a request comes in for anything about Shillito’s recipes served in their former restaurants, it spawns a huge flood of “can you find this recipe, or that?” So I wasn’t surprised when Irene Johnson’s original request for Shilllito’s chicken pot pie opened the floodgates.

Shillito’s individual chicken pot pie

I was so happy to get this recipe from Amelia reader Mary Frank. “I’m glad I could help,” she said. Me, too! This recipe comes from one printed in the Enquirer a while back by Jeff Pipes, former Lazarus Interior Design Studio manager. 1

⁄8 cup frozen peas


⁄4 cup frozen sliced carrots 6 cooked pearl onions 1 ⁄2 cup (3 oz.) diced cooked chicken – 1⁄2-inch to 3⁄4-inch chunks 3 ⁄4 cup sauce 1 to 2 oz. pastry, to cover pie Cook frozen peas and carrots and drain. Put chicken into small casserole and add veggies. Pour sauce over and bake at 350 degrees until bubbly. Serve with pastry top over casserole dish. (I’m assuming you bake the pastry separate). Makes one pie.

Pot pie sauce:

3 tablespoons margarine 11⁄2 tablespoons flour 1 cup chicken stock/broth Dash pepper

Melt margarine, add flour and mix well. Add stock,

cook and stir until creamy. Add pepper.

Shillito’s Café sandwich (Seven Hills sloppy Joes)

I have researched this recipe for years and found that the original spice mixture used in the sandwich was a commercial one and, alas, can’t be found anymore. If you remember the sandwich as being a bit spicy, go ahead and add some chili powder. 21⁄2 pounds ground beef 1 ⁄2 cup chopped onion 1 ⁄4 cup chopped bell pepper Salt and pepper 1 tablespoon dry mustard 1 tablespoon cider vinegar or more to taste 13⁄4 cup ketchup 2 tablespoons sugar or more to taste

Fifteen-minute peanut butter fudge

For the lady in Milford who wanted a peanut butter fudge “without marshmallow cream.” She told me her mom had a recipe for just such a fudge, but she can’t find it. This is from “Cook’s Illustrated,” my food “bible.” Now, my own recipe like this is almost identical, except it doesn’t have baking soda and I just melt everything in a pan and pour it into a sprayed 8-by-8 square pan. (It’s an easy and good one – my grandson, Will, made the chocolate version of the fudge and won a blue ribbon at the fair). I’m thinking, though, that the baking soda is smart addition, as that is what probably makes the texture of this fudge so good. Makes about 21⁄2 pounds. This fudge will change texture and become drier the longer it is stored.

Centro Properties Group announced a 1,418 square foot Subway recently opened at Harpers Station Shopping Center, located in the northeast corner of Interstate 275 and Interstate 71, on the southwest corner of Montgomery


Available exclusively at Only with the coupon in


To find a Kroger location near you, please visit Cincinnati.Com/bengalpins

Store the fudge, tightly wrapped in plastic, in a cool place for up to two weeks or in the freezer for three months. If frozen, allow ample time to let it reach room temperature before cutting. 18 oz. peanut butter chips ⁄2 teaspoon baking soda 1 ⁄8 teaspoon salt 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 1

Cut 12-inch length extrawide heavy-duty aluminum foil; fold edges back to form 71⁄2-inch width. With folded sides facing down, fit foil securely into bottom and up sides of 8inch-square baking pan, allowing excess to overhang pan sides. Spray foil with nonstick cooking spray. Toss peanut butter chips, baking soda, and salt in medium heatproof bowl until baking soda is evenly distributed. Stir in sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Set bowl over 4-quart saucepan containing 2 cups simmering water. Stir with rubber spatula until chips are

almost fully melted and few s m a l l Rita p i e c e s Heikenfeld remain, two to four Rita’s kitchen minutes. Remove bowl from heat and continue to stir until chips are fully melted and mixture is smooth, about two minutes. Transfer fudge to prepared pan and spread in even layer with spatula. Refrigerate until set, about two hours. Remove fudge from pan using foil and cut into squares. Double batch: Line 13 by 9-inch pan with two sheets of foil placed perpendicular to each other and double amounts of all ingredients. In Step 2, use large heatproof bowl and Dutch oven containing 4 cups simmering water.

The church conducts Codependents Anonymous, a 12-step fellowship open to all who desire healthy, fulfilling relationships at 7 p.m. Thursdays in October in room 31. The church has Roman Catholic Mass with contemporary music Sundays at 4 p.m. Good Shepherd’s contemporary music Mass is a little livelier, a little more upbeat, but remains grounded in the traditional Roman Catholic liturgy. Worshipers will recognize popular Christian worship songs by artists such as Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman and Tim Hughes, as well as familiar Catholic liturgical hymns played to a livelier beat. At key points in the service, Contemporary Mass Music Director Bruce Deaton and his band strike up energetic praise music that has the congregation singing and clapping their hands. His repertoire reverences the Eucharist, connects to the weekly scripture readings, and complements the liturgical seasons such as Advent, Lent and Easter. The Mass draws worshipers of all ages, from the youth that participate as servers, lectors, and Eucharistic ministers, to families, teens, and older adults. Come early to get acquainted with the new songs which begin at 3:45 p.m. Stay after Mass on the first Sunday of each month for food, fun, and fellowship. The church is located at 8815 E. Kemper Road, Montgomery; 5034262.
