SYMMES TOWNSHIP — Dear thief: You know who you are, the sneak who stole a box of Moeller High School memorabilia from a black Honda Accord parked in a driveway in Symmes Township the morning of Oct. 3. The Accord and the home the car was parked in front of belong to Johanna Kremer. She is communications director at Moeller, meaning she’s pretty much dedicating her entire life to the good of the school in Kenwood. Kremer is heartbroken and guilt-stricken about the theft. It is you, Mr. Thief, who should be the latter and you who can fix the former. Please return the box of memorabilia. It can’t mean much to you, certainly not what it means to Kremer and the Moeller community. If you must, keep the packages of HP ink and the new external hard drive that were in the box. Moeller really needs you to return the rest, which Kremer describes as critical archival materials that include two large notebooks of all the Moeller Magazines since 1996, disks of photos, books and

files. Also stolen was a 1962 Blue & Gold paperback yearbook, printed before the name was to the Templar. It’s the only one the Moeller library had. The memorabilia was the focus of the school’s Timeline exhibit, stationed in Moeller’s main hallway, and the subject of a recent Mass celebration. It may be just “stuff,” Kremer says, but there’s a lot of emotional attachment to the publications. Ironically, Kremer had brought the box of memorabil-

ia home for safekeeping. Now she is willing to pay a reward for anyone who can help get these items returned, no questions asked. The public will be reading this letter, Mr. Thief, which should make it changed harder for you to unload the Moeller material for a few bucks. Kremer also has contacted the Symmes Township police and higher authorities. In her words: “As a ‘good’ Catholic, I have been saying my prayers and petitioning St. Anthony for as-

sistance. “I am praying to Jim Champlin as well - Moeller’s patron saint of ‘lost and otherwise missing’ items. He’s an alumnus and former religion teacher at Moeller who lost his battle with cancer at the end of this past school year. “If anything does come from this plea for help, in my heart I will believe he had something to do with it. “All it takes is faith - and a little help from our friends. “We can always hope! I still believe. . . .”

Loveland drops ICRC for SIRE City’s public access station may also go By Jeanne Houck jhouck@communitypress.com

LOVELAND — It couldn’t have been too much fun for the Intercommunity Cable Regulatory Commission (ICRC) technician. There he sat, overseeing the live broadcast of the Loveland City Council meeting Oct. 25, as city council members voted first to cancel its cable television contract with ICRC and then to direct City Manager Tom Carroll to contract with another company for cheaper and lower-quality online broadcasting services, as well as recordkeeping services. Carroll had recommended the city forego broadcasting services altogether given that Loveland will have to make some $1 million in cuts over the next few years — largely because of cuts in state funds. A majority of participants in citizen focus groups formed earlier this year to study Loveland’s fiscal challenges agreed the city’s contract with ICRC, which costs $50,000 annually, should be the first thing to go. A majority of Loveland City Council wanted Oct. 25 to con-

tinue broadcasting their meetings live and archiving them for future perusal. They voted: » 5 to 1 to drop the contract with ICRC effective Jan. 1. Voting to drop the contract were Vice Mayor David Bednar and councilmembers Mark Fitzgerald, Paulette Leeper, Todd Osborne and Brent Zuch. Councilwoman Linda Cox dissented and Mayor Rob Weisgerber was absent. » 4 to 2 to direct Carroll to negotiate a contract with SIRE Technologies of Salt Lake City, in which Loveland will pay no more than $28,000 — which includes SIRE software – in 2012 and an annual software maintenance fee of no more than $12,500 beginning in 2013. Cox and Fitzgerald dissented.

Carroll said Loveland also will have to spend $31,915 in one-time equipment costs to contract with SIRE Technologists, which provides computer and Internet services. Loveland City Council also decided to study whether to keep a public access channel with Time Warner Cable television, which currently hosts its meetings. Hanging on to it would carry a start-up equipment cost, Carroll said. Loveland has one quote for just more than $12,000 for the equipment, and continues to shop around. Carroll emphasized that broadcasting services will be just one feature of a contract with SIRE Technologies. “There are lots of other document preparation, document

management and records retention features,” Carroll said. “That may sound mundane, but when it comes to public records, this is a vital function and one which is very time consuming with high penalties if we fail to do this properly.” Asked to comment on the actions of Loveland City Council, Pat Stern, executive director of the ICRC, said, “I am sorry that the city of Loveland has found themselves in this terrible financial situation and the ICRC will welcome them back in the future when their financial picture improves.” ICRC recently turned down Loveland’s request to approve a six-month extension to its 2011 contract so the city could explore cheaper broadcasting options. At the time, Stern told Carroll in a letter that, “We have thought long and hard about this issue, consulted legal counsel and have decided your request is just not fair to our other 26 communities.” Loveland considered negotiating a less expensive contract with ICRC. Osborne said ICRC missed an opportunity to find some way to keep Loveland as a customer and that he will not be surprised if other financially strapped governments drop their ICRC contracts, too.

tions in the business world. I currently work for a 130-employee healthcare company in Miami Township that I was part of building from the ground up. I have negotiated hundreds of contracts and have managed multimillion dollar budgets in the private sector. Born and raised in Ohio, I have lived in Clermont County for more than 20 years. I earned a bachelor’s degree in English with a minor in psychology from Cincinnati Christian University. At CCU, I was a member of the 1985 and 1986 National Champion Men's Basketball

team of the National Christian College Athletic Association. My wife, Libby and I have two daughters, Katelyn and Kristina. Q: Why do you want to be a Miami Township trustee? A: I have been a Miami Township trustee since 2005, and I want to ensure that this continues to be a great place to live, raise a family, and work. During my tenure as trustee, the township was named one of the “Top Rated Places to Live” in Greater Cincinnati. I helped lead the effort to reduce spending of tax dollars while overseeing multimillion-dollar annual budgets. I have

demonstrated an ability to work effectively with fellow elected officials and township department heads – with the goal always to do what is in the best interests of residents.

Mark Keitel

Q: Describe your background and accomplishments. A: My background is as diverse as my accomplishments are myriad. My work history has had me traveling around the world in various technical capacities, as well as my educational CV had me traveling. I have been the sole proprietor of a contracting business, a partner in an agricultural venture, and currently, while employed at a local fortune 500 company, a sole proprietor again. Part of my past includes my very proud ser-

vice in the U.S. Army where I received accolades and awards and rewards for my technical abilities. After my service, I went to work for a local soap manufacturing company where I worked in robot assisted instrumental analysis. My efforts resulted in my traveling to other technical centers to develop similar techniques there. Part of that work took me to my a place where I am spending the rest of my career, IT. I am currently employed in a developer advisory position in an electronic clearinghouse. My work there has led to me to co-author national standards for the electronic interchanges I use for transactions. Publicly, I have been elected to our civic association and led for almost four years an effort that culminated in working

with our county to get a better sewage treatment plant than was originally planned for our community. I am also an active participating member of the Miami Township Tea Party and an active member of the German American Civic Forum. I am very active in my church and its ministries, mostly the local ministries. Q: Why do you want to be a Miami Township trustee? A: It is as vitally important to me as it is to you to see our Miami Township prosper and become the home we need it to become for not only us but also for our children and grandchildren. We need to insure that our money is well spent, rules and regulations are enforced equally, and the management of our township is run honestly, openly and equitably.

Loveland Middle School students to perform new musical '13' By Chuck Gibson

‘13’

loveland@communitypress.com

Do you remember what it’s like to be 13? The Loveland Middle School Drama Club will perform the new hit musical “13” Nov. 2-Nov. 5 in the school auditorium. The show “13” is a modern-day musical about the struggles of being a 13-year-old middle school student. The story focuses on Evan (Brighton Hummer), a 13year-old boy who changes schools because of a divorce right at the time of his Bar Mitzvah. “The fun part of the show is that it is dead-on what this age is all about,” director Shawn Miller said. “It’s about the insecurities; it’s about the schematics of who relates to whom and what can happen through words. It works right in with the ‘My voice, my choice’ program we’re doing right here at the school. It is very pertinent to the age.” Miller said the show, based on the book by Dan Elish and Robert Horn, came out on Broadway in 2008 with music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown. He said there are 17 songs in the show compared to the “normal” seven or eight in a musical. “This has the best musical score I’ve ever seen for this age

level,” Miller said. “We have the best singers I think I’ve ever had. It is so vocally demanding, but these kids are knocking it out of the park.” More than 100 kids auditioned producing a strong cast of 45 LMS students for director’s Shawn Miller and Mrs. Ginger Kroncke. “It’s a smaller cast than we usually have,” co-director Ginger Kroncke said. “When you hear their voices, it is the most power-

ful piece of sound I’ve ever heard. It is so exciting.” It’s not just about being in middle school, “13” is a show about fitting in. We all want to fit in. Through Evan’s struggles, his parents divorce, changing schools, finding new friends and making his Bar Mitzvah, we’re all reminded of how hard it can be to fit in. Kroncke said it is really about finding the right sort of friends. And it is about the music. “The audience is going to hear songs they’ve never heard before,” she said. “This is a brand new musical. I think the audience is going to like and remember what it was like to be 13.” The show features songs like “Brand new you,” “Geek,” “13,” “What’s in a friend,” all different kinds of songs. Members of the

cast said the music is: “Really modern and fun to do; very relatable and not boring.” It has a little pop, blues, and country. Nekyla Hawkins is an eighthgrade cast member and believes audiences will like the all the different music styles. There’s not much dancing, but she thinks people will relate to the story. “They’ll like it because they can relate to it a lot,” Hawkins said. “It’s funny. There’s a lot of humor in it.” For Dean Parker, its fun playing Archie the “nerdy” special needs and unpopular kid that tries to use Evan, the new kid. He also understands the message delivered by Archie. “The audience will understand you don’t have to be popular,” Parker said. “It’s very energetic. It’s fun to watch. Maybe it will make you think different about your status in school.” Director Shawn Miller echoed those sentiments summing up what the audience will take home with them. “People are going to walk out remembering what things were like when they were 13,” said Miller. “Everybody is going to walk out with a sense of understanding, seeing everything play out; how Evan goes from completely frustrated to completely happy.”

XU students present research

Xavier University’s College Of Arts And Sciences held its Research Symposium Aug. 2 and Aug. 3. Twenty-three students worked with 16 faculty members to present research on topics ranging from science to politics to music. Students from this area were: Ashley Freeland of Loveland, the daughter of Michael and Mary Freeland, worked with Dr. Mack Mariani of Xavier’s Department of Political Science to present “Defining the Gender Gap in American Politics." Ashley is a senior at Xavier,

majoring in political science with minors in peace studies and gender and diversity studies. Her research focused on the gender gap in voting between men and women. Since the early 1980s, women have voted at a higher rate for the Democratic party and men have voted at a higher rate for the Republican party. Her research focused on how higher rates of economic vulnerability among women may be driving this persistent gap. “Through our research and data,” Freeland says, “we found that when controlling for family income, the gender gap in voting largely disappears for wealthy and lower income voters. At the same time, a gender gap remains with middle income voters due to differences in the way middle income men and women perceive their economic well-being. Overall, the gender gap in voting persists because women make up a larger percentage of the population in lower and middle income categories; thus, women tend to identify more than men with the Democratic Party due to the

party’s emphasis on social safety nets for the most vulnerable members of society.” Bryan Clippinger and Dan Hellmann of Cincinnati, Morgan Martin of Little Hocking, OH, and Katie Scheidler of Muncie worked with Dr. Adam Bange of Xavier’s Department of Chemistry to present “Detection of Trace Contaminants Using Voltammetric Stripping Methods.” Bryan, the son of Carl and Jackie Clippinger of Madeira, is a junior at Xavier majoring in biology and minoring in philosophy. Dan, the son of Drs. Robert and Gail Hellman of Cincinnati, is a Xavier junior majoring in natural sciences. Their research, in the field of electrochemistry, tried to find riboflavin concentrations in solution using a potentiostat. They found this was hindered by things like pH levels and side reactions.

Ursuline Lions roar to district title By Nick Dudukovich

ndudukovich@communitypress.com

BLUE ASH — The girls of the Ursuline Academy soccer team didn’t have to write on paper that they want to play for a state title. To head coach Colleen Dehring, the desired end to the 2011 season is obvious. “Who doesn’t want to be there in November in Columbus when it’s freezing cold, playing for a state championship? That’s what the girls want, and what I want, but you got to take it one day at a time,” Dehring said.

The game-by-game approach has worked splendidly for the Lions this season. The most recent high point for the team came when Ursuline captured a Division I district championship with a 3-0 win over Mount Notre Dame at Wyoming High School, Oct. 27. With the win, the squad improved to 16-0-3 on the season. Dehring said the key to Lions’ season has been a mix between unselfish players, in addition to good team chemistry. Talented student-athletes helped, too.

“We have some talented players...” Dehring said. One of those individuals is forward Lana Bonekemper. The senior is fifth in the Girls Greater Cincinnati League Scarlet Division with 36 points coming off 16 goals and four assists. The Lions have also benefited from the emergence of freshman Sara Robertson, who has nine goals on the year. Dehring said Robertson’s play has helped take defensive pressure off Bonekemper. “Last year, we only had Lana that could score and now we have

ing a 91 percent save percentage. “Erika has stepped up and made some good saves,” Dehring said. The Lions resume their postseason quest against Centerville, Nov. 2. While Dehring and company would like to play in state, the veteran head coach has her players staying cautiously optimistic. “We’ll look one game ahead, and hopefully we’ll get to the next one and have a few more (games) after that,” Dehring said.

LOVELAND — Losing a lead in a game you were winning in the final minutes is difficult. Losing said game in the final minutes of overtime is even more so. Adding insult to injury, when the game-winning goal crosses the plane inadvertently off of one of your own players, a coach is often at a loss for words. For Loveland girls soccer coach Todd Kelly, it was “all of the above” in the Lady Tigers’ 2-1 overtime loss to Mason Oct. 24 at Sycamore Junior High School. “It is a lousy way to go,” Kelly said. “They put pressure on us and those kind of things happen when you're playing soccer. You have bounces that go your way and bounces that don't. It shows you how quickly things can turn.” Sophomore goalkeeper Justine Perl could only watch helplessly as the ball found the net without touching a Mason player. As dramatic as some of her saves were throughout the game, the Lady Comets scored with 2:25 left in regulation and then benefited from the “soccer gods” with 2:05 left in the first overtime. “The second obviously is an own goal,” Kelly said. “Those are just part of the game of the soccer. It was just an unfortunate misplay. She came out to try and make the save and made a great effort. It's a bang-bang play. Our defender's trying to make a play on the ball, it deflects off her and goes in the net.” The Lady Tigers had scored early in the game courtesy of senior Rachel Baker, but then found the going tough despite multiple chances. “We had some opportunities early on,” Kelly said. “It could've very easily have been 3-0, but with squads like Mason, you've got to finish. On the offensive end, the ball didn't bounce our way.” The loss ended Loveland’s season at 10-6-2 (4-2-2 FAVC). “Mason's got great players, kudos to them,” Kelly said. “I though we deserved to win. It's a terrible way to lose. I feel bad for the kids.” It also meant a bittersweet end for six departing seniors. “We lose Rachel Baker, Hannah Moloney, Leah Wood, Tia Ariapad, Lauren Dusold and Ariel Fischer,” Kelly said. “All six of them were big contributors.” Returning will be Kelly’s keeper, Perl. “She's really started to come of age the last part of the season,” Kelly said. “This is her first year playing at the varsity level. She had some growing pains early on, but she really settled in and did a nice job.” Scoring threats Gaelen Stejbach and Sydney Dudley also re-

another girl that can score, so it takes the pressure off Lana, and puts pressure on the other team,” Dehring said. Ursuline has also maintained a stellar defensive presence, and hasn’t allowed a goal in its last six contests. Fullbacks, such as Zoe Curry and Sarah Byrne, have helped take some of the pressure off goalie Erika Wolfer. And when the opposing offense does get a shot off, Wolfer has stood up to the test. The senior led the Scarlet with 11.5 shutouts this fall, while post-

Moeller suffered its third loss in a row against the top-ranked team in Kentucky, but it still has a playoff berth as a consolation prize. “We got to get ready for the playoffs,” Moeller coach John

Rodenberg said. “We hung in there in the first half and we just let it get away in the second (half). I told our team those were three tough teams to get us ready for the playoffs. Tonight’s game wasn’t going to move us up or down (in the rankings). Playing great teams are going to make us better. We are going to be OK.” Moeller outgained Trinity 147 to 97 in the first half but couldn’t hang in during the second half. Crusader quarterback Spencer Iacovone went 5-of-10 for 63 yards and an interception. Trinity junior running back Dalyn Dawkins finished with 153 yards and three scores on 16 carries.Wide receiver James Quick had seven catches for 113 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Travis Wright went 14-of-19 for 165 yards and two scores. Moeller finishes the regular season 7-3.

This was a great group of seniors and a great team. We were exceptionally talented. It's a shame the ball bounced the way it did.” As a veteran coach like Kelly knows, the difference between winning and losing can be microscopic and it makes for great philosophy. “You can dominate for 80 minutes and lose on one miskick, Kelly said. “The ball bounces funny, and it's about being in the right place at the right time.”

Loveland girls end season against Mason The following girls soccer summary was submitted. The Loveland High School Lady Tigers varsity soccer team were trying to avenge a regular season 2-0 loss at the hands of Mason in their third-round tournament play, Oct. 24. Loveland scored first in the 16th minute when Hannah Moloney chipped a ball over a defender to Ra-

chel Baker, who was able to lob the ball over the Mason goal keeper to take the 1-0 lead. Each team had a couple of good opportunities but at halftime the score was Loveland 1 and Mason 0.

KENWOOD — The soc-

cer staff at Moeller High School had hoped for a “Fuller” season. Unfortunately, that was derailed early in the season when returning all-state midfielder Jeffrey Fuller was injured with what was first believed to be a groin pull. When the injury didn’t respond, it was found that the 5-7 senior actually had a stress fracture in his pelvic bone. Because of that, Fuller didn’t play for Moeller this season until the first week of October. He did play in the sectional final for the Crusaders against Milford Oct. 25 and scored, but the Eagles prevailed in overtime to end Moeller’s season at 10-6-2. “Obviously, you’re always disappointed for your kids,” coach Randy Hurley said. “I thought we played well outside of one or two lapses.” It was Moeller’s first overtime game of the season. When Milford’s Kyle Grothaus scored the game-winning goal, it was also their last. “Offensively, they’ve

got some strong weapons,” Hurley said of the Eagles. “Kyle Grothaus is a very good player. He can finish, he’s skillful, he can score from about anywhere.” As Hurley complimented Milford, many of the Moeller faithful were left to wonder what could’ve been had Jeffrey Fuller been healthy all season and full-go in the tournament. The script might have had a different ending. “We think so,” Hurley said. “The difficult part was, when someone’s out for the long during the year and they come back, you have to rearrange. The player that’s been playing there has to move and it ends up af-

fecting two or three players down the line.” Without making excuses, Hurley couldn’t brush off Fuller’s potential impact. With this season in the books, Hurley’s faced with the prospect of massive Moeller turnover. “We lose a lot,” Hurley said. “We graduate 12 seniors.” Among the Crusader losses will be Fuller, Greater Catholic League-South player of the year Chris Nartker, second-leading scorer Erik Radke, Raymond Roberts (who scored with Fuller in the Moeller finale), Ryan Elser (Full of the year) and defenders Joey Veatch and Ty Whalen.

CH@TROOM Oct. 26 questions Do you agree that Loveland City Council seems more civil in recent years? Why do you think that is?

“Clearly, some members of city council equate "civility" with effectiveness. They are not the same. Admittedly, since former city councilman Elliott resigned out of frustration, there have been no real challenges on anything impacting the city. Any perceived lack of civility in the recent past did not come from Mr. Elliott's behavior, but rather from a city manager and mayor who will not tolerate being questioned much less challenged. That is exactly why we need new and more thoughtful representation on our city council. We need council representatives who display the personal courage and confidence to challenge the administration on significant issues rather than simply going along with the crowd. No, it's not really civility, it is just a lack of courage that you see now.” J.B. How will you remember Carl Lindner? Did you have any personal dealings with him?

“I truly respect the enormous amount of contributions, large and small, that Mr. Lindner contributed to Cincinnati. Also I respect that he made himself so successful without the education background. Sometime it is the person with more to prove that out produce us all!” G.F. “Though I had no personal dealings with him, I was aware of his presence in the Cincinnati in various ways. At one time, I worked in the Chiquita Center, for instance; and we have frequented the UDFs for years. His generosity with his wealth has made him a legend.” Bill B. “About 40 years ago, I had just finished my first quarter at UC, working towards an MBA. I was dating a young lady who would soon become my wife. Neither of us had much money and neither did our families. To make a long story short, Carl Lindner had donated a lot of scholarship money to the College of Business. A college secretary encouraged me to apply and I was awarded the fulltuition scholarship. I worked a full-time job to pay for all my personal expenses and incidental costs, like books. My wife and I married while I was in school and as a result of the Lindner scholarship I graduated with no college loans. Because we had no debt, over the next three years we were able to save up a down payment on our first house, which we moved into a few months before the birth of our first child. I regret that I never did what I am going to do right now....Thank You, Carl!” T.H.

Blaming others fuels problem These are trying times for motorists. Even those who are not in poverty seek to find a better price for the dreaded next fill-up. The rhetoric that comes out of the “political class” is very instructive. No one wants to take the blame for the high price of gasoline. It is easy to blame someone else. Ah, it is those rotten speculators! Well, before you buy into that poor excuse, you have to consider that the speculators merely anticipate price fluctuations and buy or sell based on anticipated supply and demand. They are actually a moderating factor that keeps prices fairly stable in a normal market. In the end, it is supply and demand that mostly determines prices. The falling value of our dollar due to the govern-

ment printing money to keep up with our debt is also a major factor. This causes our suppliers to demand more money Edward Levy COMMUNITY PRESS since the value of the dollar GUEST COLUMNIST has fallen. Since our government has refused to allow the needed additional domestic production we are at the mercy of foreign suppliers for a major part of our supply. Among the other costs of this insanity is the fact that included in the cost of our gasoline is the shipping expenses that are involved in bringing the crude oil here and getting gasoline from coastal refineries to distant consum-

ers. Obviously, domestic production would reduce prices through competition and decreased transport costs. Even more importantly, it would create much needed jobs. That would start the economy on a major sustained recovery. Sadly, it seems that both the Dumbocrats and the Repugnicants would rather play for political advantage than actually solve problems by mutual agreement. It is much easier to blame the other party for your own failures. I had my own personal initiation into accepting blame. My college swim coach had a favorite saying before a tough swim meet. He said that we should always make our excuses before the race. What that really meant was that if we were not

EHRs benefit patients Just a few short years ago, we were busy writing personal letters, typing office correspondence and making copies through carbon paper. When we needed information, we reached for the encyclopedia or the phone book. Then, along came the Internet, email and electronic communication. One of the few remaining holdouts to electronic communication lies in the medical profession. Many medical care providers still jot down information on paper “charts” – you know, the ones waiting for your doctor in the bin outside the exam room. While more and more medical professionals are embracing the electronic age, health care is still woefully behind the curve. Adoption of health information technology – the sooner the better – will inevitably improve patient care. Not only will it improve your care, but it will put you in a much better position to manage your care and communicate with medical professionals to take action to improve your quality of life. The advantages to electronic health records (EHRs) are endless for patients and care providers. For instance, imagine the reduced paperwork to fill out for office visits if all of your records were maintained electronically. Any crucial informa-

tion or notices your doctor needed to see would pop up on your record. Accurate and fast electronic prescriptions Tim Ingram could be sent COMMUNITY PRESS directly to the GUEST COLUMNIST pharmacy. These are just a few of the immediate benefits to EHRs. Think about all of the information that would be available at your fingertips when you travel, visit a specialist or are admitted to a hospital. All of your medical history, lab reports, diagnoses, test results, immunizations, allergies, medications and radiological images could be available to a practitioner with the flick of a switch. What if you are involved in an accident and are unable to communicate with first responders or emergency teams? Your EHR could provide instantaneous, accurate and lifesaving information to rescuers fighting to save your life. Let’s talk about some of the benefits of EHRs to the health care profession. Researchers could quickly look at volumes of data to pinpoint and control disease outbreaks or to work toward vaccines and ultimately, cures. EHRs can track your

medications, giving health care providers a clear and accurate view of your entire health profile. With this more complete understanding of your health history, doctors can diagnose health problems and recommend the best courses of prevention and treatment. And even more important, a complete view of your health records would significantly reduce the possibility of medical error. EHRs allow you to better communicate with your health care provider. Access to these records makes you an involved member of your health care team and provides you with a much greater degree of control over your care. What about privacy and safety of information? Data contained in electronic systems is heavily secured, protected and backed up – certainly as compared to paper documents. For instance, if you are in an area affected by a natural disaster, your health information remains readily available through recovery techniques. Electronic protections and sharing protocols are highly sophisticated and greatly reduce the opportunity for human error or malfeasance. Tim Ingram is the health commissioner for Hamilton County.

Fighting childhood obesity In Hamilton County, we are aware of childhood obesity – nearly one in three of our thirdgraders are overweight or obese. We know about its devastating effects – obese kids face life-long health issues, not to mention social stigma and low self esteem. Most importantly, we’re taking action to prevent childhood obesity with WeTHRIVE!, a county-wide movement that works year-round to create healthier environments for our children. In Lockland, Michele Kipp, principal of Lockland Elementary School, makes sure that the classroom is a healthy place for all students. Lockland’s WeTHRIVE! School Health Advisory Council has passed policies that set guidelines for food brought in for birthday celebrations and alternatives to using candy as a

Last year, CPS worked with WeTHRIVE! to become the first school district in Hamilton County to adopt nutrition guidelines for foods and beverages sold to students, putting these standards in place one year before required by law.

The two gardeners also shared their passion with kids from the Woodlawn Recreation Center, passing on skills and knowledge to the next generation. Also in Woodlawn, Adale Hall led Lawson Valley Day Care to become the first child care center in Hamilton County to adopt the WeTHRIVE! Physical Activity and Nutrition Resolution for Child Care Centers, promoting a healthy start in life for our youngest citizens.

If our politicians performed their functions as a team we would not have as many problems with the economy. Do you combine trips?

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Another magnificant musical

One of the rites of fall in our area is the Loveland Middle School musical. Shawn Miller and Ginger Kroncke have been the directing team for more than 12 years and possess the extraordinary knack for developing talent. They can take a gaggle of middle school students and turn them into confident performers whose collective abilities surpass all expectations. I enjoy the privilege of participating in the music for these community gems for seven years now. Each year brings a fresh crop of talent, this year being no exception. I continue to be amazed at the volunteer base that support these shows by offering countless hours in providing set design, costumes, lighting and so much more. The results are stunning! This year’s performance of the modern Broadway show “13” is no exception to the dynamic riches these performances offer. For a nominal cost, the value provided by these shows scheduled for a four-night run beginning Wednesday, Nov. 2, will simply amaze you. I thank Miller, Kroncke, musical director Ryan Yoxthimer and the many other talented volunteers who help deliver this proud community tradition. Dave Blumberg Symmes Township

Funny Girl next up for music and laughs at LSC By Chuck Gibson loveland@communitypress.com

It’s funny how things work out. The Loveland Stage Company planned to produce “Grease,” but Mark Woods instead will be directing “Funny Girl” starting Nov. 4. “Originally we were going to do ‘Grease,’” Woods said. “We couldn’t get the rights so we switched to ‘Funny Girl.’” Community theater groups are not granted rights to produce a show while it’s running on Broadway. “It’s kind of nice,” Wood saids. “In February ‘Funny Girl’ comes back on Broadway. The show hasn’t been done in the area in about 20 years.” LSC will be among the last to run “Funny Girl” before it returns to the Broadway stage in February. The show tells the story of Fanny Brice, Ziegfeld Follies girl, and her stormy relationshipwithgamblerNickArnstein. Barbara Streisand earned the 1968 Academy Award for Best Actress for her film portrayal of Fanny opposite Omar Sharif as Nick. BonnieEmmerwillbringFanny to life on the LSC stage. The talented community theater actresshaswonawardsforsinging, stageperformanceandmake-up. Emmer’s “Jewish Jersey girl” accent is sure to be a highlight of this performance. With Marjory Clegg as choreographer, and a strong cast, Woods met the challenge of a smaller stage. “’Funny Girl’ is usually done on a larger stage,” Woods said. “We’re focusing on talent, the music and the singing. With the choreography of Marjory Clegg, it is really going well.” Justin Thompson plays Tom Keeny, owner of the burlesque theater where Brice got started before moving on to Ziegfeld’s Follies and leaving him behind. Thompson is enthused about working with Emmer in his first LSC performance.“I’m really excited about the show,” Thompson said. “The cast is strong. The lead, Bonnie Emmer is an amaz-

It all leads to Fanny becoming a Ziegfeld Follies girl and her romance with entrepreneur and gambler Nick Arnstein (Nick Castle). “When it all comes together,” he said. “It’s amazing. It’s an uptempo dance. It’s jazzy. It’s sexy. It’s all those things.” Jonathan Stanzak is a LSC first-timer appearing in several dance numbers and as a member of the chorus. He said Clegg has invested her heart in the show while also being “like a mother” to the young newcomers. K

The cast is fun.” Originally Kari King set out to have fun in Loveland’s Amazing Race last summer.

Pumpkin cheesecake, fall soup recipes Recently, my sisters and some of their kids came to my home for lunch. I was reminded of the philosophy I grew up with: it’s not just about the food, or the serveware on the table, but about who’s at the table, sharing the meal. As we segue into the crazy busy holiday season, try and remember that bit of advice. Here are two of my favorite holiday recipes, and both are do-ahead!

Julia Stegmaier’s sweet potato pear soup I met Julia at a presentation I did for Pleasant Ridge garden club. My topic was root veggies and Julia made this yummy soup for the luncheon. It’s her version of one her daughter makes for a vegan meal. Julia made hers with butter and cream. (To make it vegan, substitute vegan margarine for the butter and coconut milk for the cream). It was light and delicious. 1 tablespoon butter 1 small onion, chopped ¼ cup chopped carrot ¼ cup chopped celery 3 medium-sized sweet potatoes, peeled and diced 2 pears, peeled and diced ¼ teaspoon dried thyme 1 teaspoon paprika 5 cups vegetable broth (can use chicken broth) 1 ⁄3 cup whipping cream 2 teaspoons maple syrup, or to taste 2 teaspoons lime juice, or to taste

During these tough economic times many people are looking for used rather than new cars. A large number of people turn to the Internet looking for deals. But, as with many offers on the Internet, you have to be careful of scams. Deanna Fisher, of Batavia, learned about one such scam while looking for a used car for her daughter. She found what looked like a great deal advertised on Craigslist. “We started looking on Craigslist and found a couple of different ones, but one that really got our attention was a 2001 Ford Focus for $2,267,” she said. That vehicle had only 94,000 miles on it, so she emailed the seller. “I asked if he still had the car, said please call us, and put my husband’s phone number on it. No phone call but I got an email reply,” Fisher said. The seller sent her lots of pictures of the vehicle, both inside and outside. He said he still has the car and wanted to sell it to her. Fisher says he wrote her, “If you want it we can

like this and has a warning at the top of each page. It says beware of sending any money via Western Union and advises to only deal locally. Fisher says a close look at the emails she’s received from the seller also made her suspicious. “It really just looks like form letters, my name is not on any of those invoices. He doesn’t address me by name, its just ‘Hey, Hey, Hey.’” Fisher’s co-workers also concluded this is a scam. One of them even emailed the seller pretending he was interested in buying that same car. He claimed he would be in Boston over the weekend and said he’d like to see it in the warehouse. He got no reply. Always deal locally when buying something over the Internet. Never wire money via Western Union or Money Gram to someone you don’t know. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

It’s in a warehouse in Boston.” The seller wrote he will ship the vehicle to her for free so she can inspect and approve of the deal. However, she has to pay for it first. Fisher says he wrote, “Send me the money via Western Union and we have an eBay account set up. You should send it to me through my eBay agent.” By this time Fisher says she was very suspicious of the deal. She decided to check out the address of this so-called eBay agent and learned it is a non-existent building across from a bus stop in Salt Lake City, Utah. “It just totally sounded like a big scam to everybody,” Fisher said.

His pipeline to independence Loveland man starts own business Gannett News Service

When Rex Fledderjohn of Anderson Township needed his sewer line inspected because he believed it might have age-related cracks, he turned to a new business that offers detailed pipe inspections, but doesn’t sell plumbing services. That company is Mainline Inspection Services of Loveland, which opened last spring. Owner Patrick Hooper says he started the business after working for a year as a plumbing repair estimator, and seeing an opportunity for a company that offered an objective viewpoint on water and sewer repairs. Objectivity is exactly what Fledderjohn was looking for when he hired Mainline. “A lot of people in our neighborhood of slightly older homes have had sewer lines replaced,” Fledderjohn said. “I wanted to be proactive and have mine checked.” Adds Fledderjohn, “It was important to me that (Hooper) wasn’t selling anything. He didn’t have anything in the game. His business is strictly viewing the line. I had more confidence that he would be honest.” Although not trained as a professional plumber, Hooper

SVDP coat drive under way The Society of St. Vincent de Paul in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky and WLWT News 5 announce the 10th annual 5 Cares Coat Drive. With convenient drop off locations across the Tristate at Gold Star Chili restaurants, Kemba Credit Union branches and local fire stations, it is easy to make a difference. St. Vincent de Paul distributes winter coats directly to local families, as well as providing them to other local agencies that work with those in need across the Tristate. The 5 Cares Coat Drive relies on the generosity of Greater Cincinnati residents for the donation of new and gently-used coats towards its goal of 4,000 coats.

brought a plumber with intriguing equipment to inspect his lines. Their conversations led Hooper to a job with the plumbing contractor as an excavation estimator. For the next year, Hooper estimated major sewer repairs with the plumbing company’s video equipment, which uses small cameras mounted to thin tubes that can be snaked through a sewer or drain line. Today, he uses his own video equipment to do much the same thing for his company’s customers. An inspection gen-

drew on skills he learned in the trade as a kid working alongside his dad, a pipe fitter, and from his year as a repair estimator. After college, he developed a career in advertising sales, never giving a second thought to plumbing. As the economy worsened in the past few years, however, Hooper lost his job selling advertising in a national auto trade publication, then lost a second job, too. By the summer of 2010, Hooper was out of work. A sewer backup in his own yard

Along with donating coats or making a financial contribution, you can get involved by volunteering your time. Simply visit www.SVDPcincinnati.org for more information. Participating local fire departments serving as drop off points include Blue Ash, Deerfield Township, Loveland, Milford and Montgomery. For a complete list of fire stations as well as participating Gold Star Chili locations and Kemba Credit Union branches, go to www.wlwt.com or www.SVDPcincinnati.org. For more information, call St. Vincent de Paul at 513-562-8841, ext. 247.

erally takes two hours, costs about $225 and includes a report with photos and video of the plumbing line, and an estimate of what repairs could cost, if they are needed. “(As an estimator) I saw new homeowners who were getting hit with problems right after they bought a house,” Hooper said. “Situations like that got my wheels turning. I feel the $225 I charge gives me the opportunity to be as honest as I can be. What it comes down to, is if this was my house and my pipe, what would I do?”

Also, each person will receive a goody bag filled with healthy snacks/ treats, while having an opportunity to participate in all of the festivities. The candy exchange is an effort to encourage good oral health by decreasing the amount of candy consumed during and after Halloween.

The event follows October's National Orthodontic Health month (NOHM) and is intended to motivate youth to maintain good oral health throughout the year. Among the activities: inflatable bounce house; giveaways and raffles; face painting; magician; food/beverages; Deerfield Fire Department; local Army Reserves, and Kona Ice Truck.
