David ‘Seth’ Mitchell 1979-2009

‘A young man who embodied honor’

By Jeanne Houck

A ‘normal’ life

It was “Chicken Little” who helped Ashley Palmer discover her dream to be in acting. Now the 1996 Loveland High School graduate is realizing her dream with a role in this Halloween’s surprise horror phenomenon, “Paranormal Activity.” “We’ve known since she was 5,” said her mom, Kathy Palmer. “The lead character got the chicken pox and Ashley, 5 at the time, knew all the lines.” SEE LIFE, B1

Teachers and coaches at Loveland High School remember David “Seth” Mitchell as a young man with blossoming leadership skills, a ready grin and a serious commitment to becoming a pilot with the U.S. Marine Corps. Today they are reeling over the news that Mitchell, a 1997 graduate, Marine Corps captain and pilot, was killed Oct. 26 while supporting combat operations in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. He was 30 years old. “I think, next to my very first day as a teacher, this was the toughest day I have ever had on the job,” said Julie Powers, math department chair. “No matter how long we teach, we are never prepared for a shock like this one.” Mitchell was a member of the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets Class of 2001. Though he graduated from Loveland High a dozen years ago he is vividly remembered – and not just because he was president of his senior class, active in student council, voted “Mr. Personality” by his classmates, played football and ran track. “I can still remember that Seth sat in the row by the window, third seat back,” social studies teacher Jeff Geiger said. “He was a teacher’s dream student. Seth was quiet, polite and a hard worker. It was no surprise that he would become an officer in the Marines.

Mitchell service set for Nov. 5 The Loveland Veterans Memorial Committee and Loveland American Legion Post 256 will be holding a memorial service for David “Seth” Mitchell at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 5, at the Veterans Memorial Park located at the intersection of Loveland Avenue and Riverside Drive in Loveland.

LEIGH TAYLOR/STAFF

Molly Emerick leans on Drew Gibson, both from Loveland, during a memorial service for David “Seth” Mitchell at Loveland High School Oct. 27. Both Weable and Gibson were friends and classmates of Mitchell'’s. “I am very proud of him,” Geiger said. “Because of men like Seth, I can tuck my children safely into bed every night.” Government teacher David Volkman described Mitchell as “a young man who embodied honor, integrity and courage.”

Kevin Taylor, assistant athletic director, said, “Seth went through life with an always-win attitude. No matter what the situation, he was determined to come out on top. “His main goal was to be a Marine pilot and Seth died for his

country doing what he loved most,” Taylor said. “He was a true gentleman with a great sense of humor, great personality and always had a little grin or a big smile on his face.” Powers also commented on Mitchell’s smile. “As a high school student, I don’t think I ever saw him without a huge grin on his face,” Powers said. “I never knew him to back down from any challenge, give up, quit, whine or complain. Seth was relentless in his pursuit of his goal to become a pilot. I have rarely seen such intensity from a high school student. “He was and is an inspiration to his classmates, to Loveland High School and to the Loveland community,” Powers said. “I believe, after hearing of his 10 medals received during his career in the military, that the Marines would agree with that, too. “ Mitchell’s parents live now in North Carolina.

City taps into grants to save water supply By Jeanne Houck jhouck@communitypress.com

Ten acres of vacant land along the Little Miami River in unincorporated Warren County now belong to Loveland and will remain undeveloped to protect the city water supply. Loveland recently bought the property, which includes two parcels, for $551,100. The city won three grants from the state of Ohio that will cover more than 80 percent of the sale price. About 7.5 acres of the land – all of which will remain vacant – lie between the Little Miami River and Cones Road, beginning around the Cones Road intersection with Adams Road and stretching to the Ertel Run Creek bridge. It is accessible to people on the Little Miami Bike Trail and also borders open space in the Brandy-

Jeff Wright, assistant Loveland city manager, said a wellhead protection study commissioned by the city in 2004 determined that there are significant threats of contamination in the area. “Preventing future development from occurring on this currently vacant land will allow the city to ensure that our wells and drinking water will not be compromised,” Wright said. Councilman Brent Zuch said the purchase of the property is a great opportunity for Loveland to protect one of its greatest assets, its drinking water. “There is a concrete plant adjacent and this ensures that there will not be an industry

BUYING COINS & BULLION

Actively Pursuing High End Coins Both Foreign And US Coin Collections

By Mary Dannemiller mdannemiller@communitypress.com

IF YOU SELL TO ANYONE ELSE…YOU’RE SELLING FOR LESS

About 150 senior citizens packed the Miami Township Civic Center Tuesday, Oct. 20, for a forum presented by Clermont Senior Services called Moving Forward: Seniors, Transportation and Independence. The forum allowed seniors to ask questions of various speakers on a variety of subjects from how much it costs to ride Clermont Transportation Connection shuttles to whether grandchildren were allowed to ride with them. “We always find there are folks out there who don’t know about CSS and the services we offer so this forum provided an opportunity to help get the word out and hear what people’s needs are,” said George Brown, executive director of Clermont Senior Services. “It also gives us an opportunity to explain some of the limitations we have that are driven by our budget, such as why we can’t do more personal trips.” Miami Township Trustee Karl Schultz attended the forum and said it is important for seniors to realize they have options when it comes to transportation.

MARY DANNEMILLER/STAFF

Senior citizens listen as Clermont County Commissioner Ed Humphrey speaks about road projects in Miami Township. “We had to pull my dad’s license and it was very hard,” he said. “Transportation is critical to a person’s vision of life and taking that away can be viewed as a death sentence, but there are so many good programs out there that provide mobility and support.” Brown also said it can be hard for seniors to come to terms with using public transportation rather than driving themselves. “They call it America’s love affair with the automobile for a reason,” Brown said. “No one believes or thinks that the day is going to come when they won’t be able to drive, but in fact the time comes after you’ve been driving 60 or 70 years and old age creeps in and you have to lay the keys down.” Some of the programs highlighted during the

forum were CTC’s new Goshen-Milford-Miami Township route, transportation services offered by the Clermont County Veteran Service Commission and CSS’ transportation initiative. “If you don’t have family or friends who can take you wherever you need to go, then you need to rely on the services we provide,” Brown said. “If it were not for these services, there are older adults who would very likely have to go in to nursing homes because they couldn’t get to dialysis, cancer treatments and to receive other essential medical care.” More forums are planned for 2010 for general discussion about seniors’ needs. For more information about senior transportation options, call 724-1255, or visit clermontseniors.com.

Loveland again mulls recreation user fees By Jeanne Houck jhouck@communitypress.com

They call themselves Loveland Premiere Fast Pitch, Loveland Youth Diamond Sports, Loveland Youth Football and the Loveland Youth Soccer and Soccer Club. Loveland officials say city residents comprise just one-third of these organizations’ membership and are considering instituting fees for leagues that use Loveland’s ball fields for free. Loveland City Council took no vote after a wideranging discussion about user fees at its Oct. 27 meeting, but may in the future ask the Recreation Board to help city staff solicit public input on the matter – with an eye toward having a decision by next spring’s sports seasons. City Manager Tom Carroll said council should count on any such proposal ruffling some feathers.

“Because long-serving staff members have noted that previous attempts to charge recreation leagues user fees met with considerable objections from parents and league leadership, a similar reaction should be expected,” Carroll said. Carroll said Loveland could use the money generated by user fees to fund some of the $1.5 millionworth of parks improvements identified in the city’s 2006 Parks and Recreation Master Plan. “While staff has had reasonable success in securing grants for some of the various recreation improvements such as the tot lot improvements and the skate park, the city is far from on pace to develop a funded capital program to make a dent into this long list of projects,” Carroll said. One way to implement user fees would be to charge the leagues based on the

number of participants, Carroll said. If the leagues raised their own fees to offset new city user fees, he said, Loveland could give city residents participating in the leagues a rebate. “This rebate would recognize that city residents who participate in leagues already pay taxes to the city to support the city’s parks and should not have to pay both taxes and fees to support recreation programs while those non-residents from the unincorporated area pay only fees,” Carroll said. About 43 percent of participants in the recreation leagues reviewed by Loveland live in Miami Township and about 14 percent in Symmes Township. Carroll said Loveland could net $24,100 per season with a $10 participant fee, $49,460 with a $20 participant fee and $62,140 with a $25 participant fee.

Cheetah breaks world speed record in Miami Twp. By Kellie Geist kgeist@communitypress.com

One of Cincinnati’s own has claimed a world record, and she did it right here in Clermont County. Sarah, an 8-year-old cheetah from the Cincinnati Zoo, set the world record for the fastest land mammal by running 100 meters in 6.13 seconds at Mast Farm in Miami Township. Mast Farm is the zoo’s regional breeding facility for cheetahs. “I think it’s fair to say that this is the all-time great day in cheetah racing,” said Thane Maynard, director of The Cincinnati Zoo. “It’s fun to see her race so fast.” Sarah ran three times Wednesday, Sept. 9, to claim the world record. Her first run broke the record of 6.19 seconds with 6.16 seconds and her second run was even faster at 6.13 seconds. She ran the 100 meters in 6.33 seconds on her third run. Sarah is a member of the Cat Ambassador Program at the Cincinnati Zoo, which has a companion program in Cape Town South Africa. One of the cheetahs from the South Africa program, Zaza, will race to break Sarah’s record later this month or in early October. “This time we were running up hill and into the wind, but if Zaza beats Sarah, we’re going to run again, but downhill and with the wind,” Cat Ambassador Program founder Cathryn Hilker said. “No

Sarah, an 8-year-old cheetah from the Cincinnati Zoo, chases a lure while attempting to break the world speed record for a land mammal. Alicia Sampson controlled the mechanical lure for all three of Sarah’s runs.

Cat Ambassador Program Founder Cathryn Hilker opens Sarah’s crate and sets her off to run 100 meters.

“I’m proud of Sarah every day of her life, she’s a wonderful animal with a wonderful spirit,” Hilker said. “The Cat Ambassador Program is so important to the survival of these animals and, when the kids see the cheetah, and the other cats, they are just awestruck.”

Sarah is the second cheetah from The Cincinnati Zoo to hold the world speed record. Moya, another cheetah from the Cincinnati Zoo, ran 100 meters in 6.6 seconds in 2000. Cheetah, an African cat about the size of a small leopard, can run about 70 miles per hour.

Future Loveland Indoor sand volleyball coming to Symmes city councils to get pay hike By Amanda Hopkins

ahopkins@communitypress.com

By Jeanne Houck jhouck@communitypress.com

Loveland City Council voted 4 to 1 to approve an ordinance Oct. 27 that gives members of future city councils a $1,500 increase in pay or benefits. Councilman Paul Elliott voted against the increase, saying council doesn’t deserve a raise and that some current members will benefit from the $1,500 hike. Councilman Todd Osborne pointed out that the increase will not be effective until December 2011, by which time all council members will have completed their current terms and either run for reelection or left office. City council members are not allowed to increase their salaries for their current term of office. Currently, the Loveland mayor makes $4,670 a year, the vice mayor $4,235 a year and the other council members $3,800 a year – sums that have not been increased since 1993. The city’s Finance Committee said an increase is “long overdue” and recommended the $1,500 hike as well as additional $100 hikes per year between December 2012 and

December 2015. The committee said that the city is changing its health-insurance benefits and the associated savings will more than cover the cost of the increased compensation for council. The ordinance approved Oct. 27 includes both the $1,500 increase and the annual $100 increases from 2012 to 2015. Voting yes were Mayor Rob Weisgerber, Vice Mayor David Bednar, Councilman Mark Fitzgerald and Osborne. Councilman Brent Zuch was absent and Councilman Joe Schickel left the meeting shortly before the vote. The current terms of Weisgerber, Bednar, Schickel and Zuch end this year. Only Schickel is not seeking re-election in November to a new term that begins in December. The current terms of Elliott, Fitzgerald and Osborne end in November 2011.

After playing on every local sand volleyball court, Kevin Westerkamm will soon be able to play on his own. Westerkamm, who is general manager, and three other partners opened Grand Sands, an indoor sand volleyball facility at 10750 Loveland-Madeira Road, Sunday, Nov. 1, for league play. On Nov. 7 there is a “Volleypalooza” tournament featuring live music, a pig roast and both recreational and competitive tournament brackets. The 20,000-square-foot building features five indoor sand volleyball courts, a restaurant and a full bar. Westerkamm said the restaurant menu will stay healthy and will have burritos, rice bowls, flatbread sandwiches, subs, wraps, soups and salads. He said there will be no fried foods. Grand Sands is only the fifth indoor sand volleyball court in the nation and the first one in Ohio. Westerkamm said there are more than 5,000 players locally, many of them from the east

He said five other courts and a deck will be built outside for summer play and will be visible from Loveland-Madeira Road. During the summer, even bad

weather will not cancel games. “We’ll never have a rainout (with the indoor courts),” Westerkamm said. League play started Nov. 1 and already 181 teams have signed up.

Tigers pay tribute with victory By Ricky Mulvey Correspondent

Friday night, Oct. 30, was more than just a game for the Loveland Tigers and the Milford Eagles. It was a tribute to 1997 Loveland graduate, Afghanistan veteran and hero, Capt. David S. Mitchell. The action on the field was great as the Tigers came out with a 28-12 victory in the Battle for the Bell. “I’m very proud of our seniors. We finished strong at 5-5 which is the best Loveland has finished since the inception of the Buckeye conference (in the FAVC). Are we satisfied with third place? No, but we’ll keep building,” Loveland head coach Andrew Marlatt said. Loveland started with a bang with an Adam Engel 30-yard carry to the threeyard line. Isaac Spence ran it in to make the Tigers draw first blood at 7-0. When Milford got the football they proceeded to fake a play and punt it on 4th down. Engel reeled off a 10-yard pass to Spence and the Tigers were near the goal

Engel had a 20-yard rush for a Tiger touchdown to make the score 14-0. The quarter ended with Milford’s Nathan Termuhlen rushing 30 yards. The second started the Eagles dangerously close to the end zone. They then picked up their first six points with a pass from Frank Sullivan to Shawn Taylor. The extra point was

blocked and the score was 14-6. Kylee Knabe of the Tigers recovered his own fumble after returning the ball to the 38-yard line. Evan Beck then passed 40 yards to Engel and after fighting for the ball, Engel had the pigskin inside the five-yard line. Isaac Spence brought in the touchdown and the Tigers were leading at 21-6. The Eagles then recovered their own fumble

Loveland’s Spence had a 15-yard carry and the quarter was over. The third quarter of the game launched with a 70yard touchdown pass by Sullivan to Termuhlen, and

with the failed two-point conversion the score was 21-12. Loveland had to punt, but the Eagles were forced to start at their own oneyard line. After an almostpick by Engel, Loveland would get the football back. The Tigers then faced a fourth and one, and successfully moved the chains. The Tigers would then have to go for another fourth but this time their pass was intercepted. Luckily a personal foul call ensued and Loveland obtained first and goal. The fourth began with the Tigers’ Engel running another TD to make the point total 28-12. The Eagles then got 40 yards in two passes. After Nick Cheney sacked the quarterback, Loveland forced the turnover. Loveland ran out the clock, but the Eagles would get one more offensive drive with little time left. In a last ditch pass by Milford, Engel made the last big play of his high school football career in the form of an interception. Loveland finished the season at 5-5, third in the FAVC Buckeye division.

Loveland loses streak; season ends By Tony Meale tmeale@communitypress.com

After reeling off nine straight zeroes, the Loveland High School boys’ soccer team finally allowed a goal. And lost. Facing a Fairfield team that has tasted defeat just twice this season, Loveland fell 1-0 in the Division I Sectional Final at Winton Woods on Oct. 27. The Tigers, which finish the season 11-4-3 (4-0-1), had gone 8-0-2 in their previous 10 matches. “Fairfield is a good team with very good balance,” head coach Ron Quinn said. “We played well and had a few kids play hurt, but the key difference was that Fairfield created an opportunity and was able to finish it.” Neither team had a significant number of scoring chances, as defense dominated throughout. But Fairfield, ranked No. 2 in

Facing a Fairfield team that has tasted defeat just twice this season, Loveland fell 1-0 in the Division I Sectional Final at Winton Woods. Enquirer Division I coaches’ poll, found a way to cash in. Loveland hadn’t allowed a goal in nine matches sprawling 38 days. “It was everybody coming together,” Quinn said of his team’s surge during the second half of the season. “But if I had to pinpoint one person (who made the difference), I would say (senior) co-captain Brian Kuramoto. He really took ownership of the defense and did what a coach wants out of a captain. His leadership and work ethic were outstanding.” Quinn also credited the rest of his defense, including seniors Andrew Schuster and Mike Sonnenberg,

as well as sophomore Austin Klueh and senior midfielder Jake Nye. They – along with junior goalie Alex Austin – yielded just .78 goals per game and registered 12 shutouts. Twelve of the 14 goals the Tigers allowed in 2009 came during the first seven games of the season. “Alex really improved his goalkeeping,” Quinn said. Offensively, the Tigers showed flashes of a juggernaut. They scored 39 goals this season – highlighted with 22 net rippers during a four-game winning streak in late September – and averaged 2.2 goals per match. Loveland was led by senior Chris Kuramoto, who was second in the league in goals, with 14, and third in total points, with 29. “He did a really outstanding job,” Quinn said. The Tigers’ season highlight came during a 1-0 win at Milford on Oct. 13; junior forward Nathan Boucher

“They’re leaving the program in good shape,” he said. “I think we’re standing on strong ground for the future. The junior varsity team had an excellent year, and that’s always the lifeblood of the program. We’re looking forward to next year.”

Cougars rattled, ousted from tourney By Tony Meale tmeale@communitypress.com

The Mount Notre Dame soccer team – which includes a girl from Loveland – was beaten by a team it didn’t even play. Before taking the field for the Division I Sectional Final against Anderson Oct. 26, the Cougars watched league rival St. Ursula – which is vying for its third straight state title and boasts possibly the best college prospect in America in Elizabeth Burchenal – survive a 1-0 spellbinder in overtime against Oak Hills. “Our girls watched SUA and saw what they went through, and we became a very mentally unstable team,” MND head coach Doug Conway said. “They were a nervous wreck

watching that game and it carried over onto the field.” MND – fresh off a 2-1 victory over previously unbeaten Lakota West – lost 3-0 to Anderson. The three goals were tied for the most surrendered by MND in a game this season. “They had a great season and made a great run,” Conway said of his team. “One bad game doesn’t mean you had a bad season.” But for MND’s eight seniors, all of whom played varsity for at least three years, the loss was difficult to bear. “It was pretty emotional for them,” Conway said. “This group has been together a long time.” That group includes defenders Chelsea Murphy, Kelsey Gault and Fallon

Wujek; midfielders Samantha Gaier, Maggie Speed and Lacie Oliver; and forwards Nora Lavelle and Kiley Powell. “Chelsea has come a long way,” Conway said. “She had as hard a year as you can have last year. Her father died of a heart attack and she dislocated her wrist and missed almost the entire season. But she came back this year and was phenomenal.” It was an up-and-down season for MND, which started the year 3-4-4 before going 5-2 in October. The Cougars struggled finding the net early in the season but saw their offensive output increase as the year went on; they averaged 1.39 goals per game. “We changed formations and went to a 4-3-3, so that

gave us the ability to produce a little more,” Conway said. Leading the way offensively was freshman Rose Lavelle, who scored 10 goals and dished out three assists. She scored her biggest goal of the year in the sectional semifinal against Lakota West – a game-winner with 25 seconds left in the match. “When she came out at the end of the first half – and I don’t normally tell people this, but I told her – ‘I know you’re a freshman, but I nominated you for allcity. And that’s something I usually don’t do with freshmen,’” Conway said. “But she’s a special player, and I told her that special players do special things in big games. When she got the ball at the end of that game,

I knew she was going to score.” Conway predicts that Lavelle will be one of the top players in the city – and maybe the top player – by the time she is a senior. “Some girls get to varsity and become content,” Conway said. “With her, I don’t see the drive going away.” The MND defense, meanwhile, was stout all season, save for the game against Anderson. The Cougars allowed just 16 goals in 18 games and had eight shutouts. “We were calm under pressure,” said Conway, who was particularly impressed with freshman goalie Sam Shoemaker. “We really didn’t have a varsity-level goalkeeper, and she stepped in and made some big saves,” he said.

The Cougars won 2-1 on a last-minute goal by freshman Rose Lavelle. “She’s one of the reasons we had eight shutouts.” With one freshman scoring goals and another one stopping them, the Cougars figure to be solid for years to come.

JV football posts win over Harrison The following is a compilation of submitted wrapups of recent junior varsity football games. Winton Woods 28, Loveland 11 – The Tigers traveled to Winton Woods to challenge the Warriors Oct. 24. Both teams opened the game with long drives that stalled short of the goal line in the first quarter. Midway through the second period, the Warriors recovered a fumble on the Tiger’s 40yard line to set up a touchdown. Their attempt at a twopoint conversion failed. Kylee Knabe answered with a 40 run through the middle of the Warriors line to inside their 10-yard line. The drive stalled and the Tigers had to settle for a 26 yard Jonathan Treloar field goal and the half end with the Warriors on top 6-3. Second half scoring began with a Warriors’ 60yard touchdown scoring drive followed by a successful two-point conversion. Again Kylee Knabe was quick to answer with a 55yard touchdown run followed by a successful two-

point conversion by the Tigers to draw within 3 points. The quarter ended with a Warrior sweep around the Tiger’s end, down the sideline for a 75yard touchdown. Their conversion attempt failed and Winton Woods led 20-11. The Tiger’s fans were energized by a 40-yard pass from Andrew Lay to Caleb Cloud to bring them deep into Warriors’ territory. Unfortunately the threat was turned back by a Warrior’s defensive stand. Fourth quarter scoring ended with a 20-yard Winton Woods run for a touchdown and another successful two-point conversion resulting in a Warriors’ 2811 win. The JV Tigers hosted Milford Oct. 31 in their finale. Loveland 30, Harrison 16 – The Tigers hosted the Harrison Wildcats Saturday, Oct. 17. In the opening series Loveland’s initial drive stalled on the Harrison 25 and a subsequent field goal attempt by Jonathan Treloar was blocked. The Wildcats were unable to move the

ball and punted to Andrew Lay. His 20-yard return placed the Tigers at the Harrison 33. The scoring drive was capped off with a 19 yard run Collin Shulke with 3:24 left in the 1st quarter Loveland’s next score was set up following a Harrison fumble on its 26-yard line. A 12-yard pass to Caleb Cloud brought the ball to the 7-yard line where the drive stalled. A 26-yard Treloar field goal put the Tiger on top 10-0. Harrison answered with a 70-yard touchdown drive with 5:34 left in the half and added on a two-point conversion. In Loveland’s next possession Harrison picked off a Loveland pass at the 50yard line and returned it to the Tigers’ 1-yard line. The defense mounted a determined stand, taking over possession on its own 2yard line. The effort went for naught however as Harrison intercepted an errant pass and ran it in for a touchdown. Andrew Lay highlighted the ensuing Loveland drive with a 20-yard run to the Harrison 5. He followed up with a touchdown scoring

run with 21 seconds in the half. Collin Shulke opened the second half with a 63-yard run to the Harrison 7-yard line, but Harrison’s defense took the opportunity to make a stand and kept the Tigers out of the end zone. Both teams were held scoreless in the third quarter as Loveland held on to a slim 17-16 lead. Loveland’s offense came alive in the final period following g a fumble recovery by tackle Ben Hadden at the Harrison 9. Collin Shulke pounded the ball in the end zone, but Loveland missed their extra-point attempt. The final score of the day was a 15-yard pass from Andrew Lay to Caleb Cloud followed by a successful Treloar extra-point kick to seal the win for the Tigers at 30-16. Outstanding defensive efforts were turned in by juniors Robby Mulvey, Justin Diaz and Ben Hadden along with the rest of the tiger defensive line and secondary. The Tigers travel to Winton Woods to take on the Warriors Oct. 24.

Fairfield held the edge in possession and had more dangerous moments. Loveland keeper Alex Austin did thwart a semibreakaway coming off his line to his left in the 19th minute. In the 23rd minute a nice give and go between Chris Kuramoto and Tyler Beachy ended in a last touch just beyond the reach of Kuramoto that ended up with the Fairfield keeper. The second half really opened up and it appeared clear that it would not go to overtime. In the 59th minute, John Williams shot from inside the 18 on the left just missed. A few minutes later a Fairfield shot from 16 yards out on the right hit the inside of the near post before being cleared away. Finally, in the 72nd minute an outswinging cross from 18 yards out on the right was headed home from 8 yards out at the far post to give Fairfield the 1-0 victory. Loveland had gone 833 minutes (more than 10 full games) without being scored upon before this. Shots (On Goal): 12(2)7(4) (Fairfield-Loveland); corners: 6-5 (F-L); fouls: 13-13 (L-F)

Loveland 2, Milford 2 – A first-place finish in the FAVC was on the line for the Tigers as they took on their final conference opponent the Milford Eagles Oct. 14. Both teams possessing undefeated records in the conference set the stage for a highly competitive match. Loveland faced what proved to be a strong Milford squad both offensively and defensively. The Tigers were able to block all advances made by Milford; but struggled to break through Milford’s defensive lineup- until the 31st minute of the first halfwhen Max Olberding came up with possession finding a weakness as he worked the ball up the middle. Scoring from 15 yards out, the shot sailing past a diving keeper, Loveland took the lead over the Eagles, 1-0. Milford tied the score with a goal of their own as only 17 seconds remained on the clock before halftime. Loveland came out and scored in the seventh minute of the second half as Marty Bixler found Matt Swaine who finished from 3 yards out directly in front of the left post. In the lead, Loveland battled to keep a determined

Milford offensive in check; but the Tigers were unable to prevent the Eagles from scoring again in the 24th minute – tying the score for a second time. This FAVC game ended with a final score of 2-2, leaving the Tigers and Eagles tied for the season for first place in their conference. Mason 1, Loveland 0 – The Tigers traveled to play their last game of the season against the Mason Comets Oct. 15. A physical game punctuated by fouls held the crowd’s interest for the entire match. Ball possession was even as both teams successfully blocked all goal attempts and the first half ended with a 0-0 score. Stepped up efforts when the teams came out for the second half, increased pressure on both keepers and Mason was able to tap one into the net, leaving Loveland with 26 minutes left in the match to even up the score. A determined team-wide effort from Loveland kept Mason off the scoreboard for the remainder of the game. Loveland came up empty, however, as they aspired to out-maneuver Mason’s defense. The final score was Mason 1, Loveland 0 – bringing the Loveland Men’s JV soccer record for the season to 8-5-3.

Making daylight saving time’s end safer for all of us As autumn turns toward winter, daylight hours are growing shorter. Now that we have changed our clocks from daylight saving time back to standard time, it is dark even earlier. What we may not realize is that this also means more children will be traveling to and from school in the dark, which puts them at greater risk of injuries from traffic crashes. Nationwide, more than half of all fatal pedestrian crashes and more than one fourth of fatal bicycle crashes involving school-age children (ages 5 through 18) occur in low light or dark conditions. There are many things you can do to help your kids, or the kids in your neighborhood, get to school each morning and reach home safely at the end of the day.

A motorist will quickly detect a child walking with a lit flashlight, or riding on a bike with an attached headlight and flashing taillight.

Blood donations save lives According to the American Red Cross, it is estimated that someone will need a blood transfusion here in the U.S. every two seconds – whether to treat injuries from an accident or as a part of surgery or treatment for diseases such as cancer and leukemia. Although 85 percent of people will need some form of a blood product before the age of 75, less than 5 percent of those eligible donate blood. These telling statistics demonstrate the real need for blood donations, yet we frequently hear pleas in the news from our local health officials about the critically low status of our area blood supplies. If hospitals are running low on blood products, they may have to postpone certain procedures or surgeries until adequate supplies can be found. In addition, accident victims and trauma patients can go through dozens of units of blood in a short time, which can quickly exhaust a hospital’s supply of blood products. To help increase the number of people available to donate blood, bills were introduced in both the Ohio House and Senate that would allow 16-year-olds to donate blood with parental consent. Ohio law requires a person to be age 17 or older in order to donate blood. Expanding the pool of eligible blood donors to include 16-yearolds has a number of benefits. As

many blood donation drives are held at high schools, this will allow more blood to be collected at these sites. It is estimated that in State Sen. Ohio, nearly 15 Shannon percent of donatJones ed blood comes from high Community schools, and the Press guest Red Cross is esticolumnist mating that an additional 10,000 units of blood could be collected each year with this change. If people start donating blood at a young age, they are more likely to become a repeat donor and to donate blood regularly. Research has demonstrated that allowing 16-year-olds to donate blood is medically safe, and Red Cross officials have indicated they will continue to review their policies and procedures to ensure these young individuals have a safe blood donation experience. The bills introduced in the House and Senate would only permit not-for-profit organizations such as the Red Cross to collect blood from 16-year-olds. The bills will also help encourage older individuals to donate blood. By requiring 16-year-olds to get parental consent before

donating blood, we can encourage a dialogue between children and their parents that could inspire them to also give blood. The components derived from a unit of donated blood are perishable – usually lasting only a few days or weeks – which makes replenishing supplies critical in order to ensure hospitals and medical centers have an adequate supply. With each unit of blood having the ability to save three lives, allowing 16-year-olds to donate has the ability to have a major impact on Ohio’s blood supply and the people who depend on it. More than 20 other states, including Kentucky and Pennsylvania, already permit 16-yearolds to donate blood. I am pleased to say that House Bill 67 was signed into law earlier this summer and will become effective Ohio law in October. If you are interested in donating blood, you can contact the American Red Cross at 1-800GIVELIFE or visit www.givelife.org for a listing of upcoming blood drives in your area.

Life is ‘Paranormal’ for Loveland graduate

By Kelly McBride Reddy kreddy@communitypress.com

Two Princeton High School seniors have a star to place on their college admissions or resumes. The pair, Megan Piphus and Kara Henderson, have been recognized as National Achievement Scholars. The program recognizes outstanding Black American high school students based on PSAT scores. Of the 1.5 million students who take the test, about 120,000 compete for the scholarship, with 3,000 included on a published list of high academic achievers. That list is sent to colleges and universities, where it’s used to help recruit and recognize students with high academic potential. “I was surprised,” Piphus said of the honor. “To be nationally recognized is pretty awesome.” Dana Zinnecker, the school’s library assistant, agreed. “This is something they’re going to carry with them, part of Princeton

Pride,” Zinnecker said. “It’s a really nice legacy.” “It was cool,” Henderson said of receiving the news through the school announcements recently. “They limit the number of students who get this to about 3,000, so the fact that I got this told me, ‘I can do it!’” Henderson plans to attend the University of Pittsburgh to study multimedia broadcasting and business. She wants to pursue a career in advertising and marketing. Piphus said she’s considering Belmont University or Vanderbilt University, where she will study either music or business. “This stands as a representation of how we can achieve in the future,” Piphus said. The young women said other students have taken note. “Kids in other grades have asked what they can do to get this recognition,” Piphus said. “I hope we can stand as an inspiration to other kids,” Henderson said.

It was “Chicken Little” who helped Ashley Palmer discover her dream to be in acting. Now the 1996 Loveland High School graduate is realizing her dream with a role in this Halloween’s surprise horror phenomenon, “Paranormal Activity.” “We’ve known since she was 5,” said her mom, Kathy Palmer. “The lead character got the chicken pox and Ashley, 5 at the time, knew all the lines.” Her mom told how Ashley always did all the high school shows; auditioned for every lead, sang in chorus and show choir at Loveland. Still there was the doubt of concerned parents and then she got the lead as Polly in the Showboat Majestic summer production of “The Boyfriend.” At the age of 16 she had her first professional lead. “We decided to quit arguing,” Kathy Palmer said. Ashley focused on musical theater and even won the Loveland Stage Company scholarship for college. It’s a long way from a kid’s neighborhood production of “Chicken Little” to a big screen horror film in Hollywood. “The scary thing never entered into it,” mom said. “It just happened that this is the thing. We’re so amazed at the success of this movie. It’s phenomenal! It’s just a payoff for all the work she’s done. We’re so excited for the attention. She’s earned it; she sacrificed a lot.” Acting consumed her life. She pursued it all through childhood and high school. She took classes; acting, singing and dancing at College-Conservatory of Music. She went to see a lot of shows. “I don’t think I was really the normal kid,” Ashley said. “I remember one time my parents took us to see a Bengal game. I spent half the time hand-writing a resume because I’d read there was an audition for a movie going on in Kentucky. I insisted that my mother take me to it after the game.” She got her first exposure to New York City during her senior year in high school when she was chosen to participate in an acting workshop there. “I just fell madly in love with New York City,” she said. “I knew I had to move there and wanted to someday do Broadway.” An opportunity to work in modeling with the Ford agency made her think for a moment she should put off college for a year. Her parents helped

talk her out of that. She’d already been awarded scholarships and was accepted into musical theater at Otterbein. “I went to Otterbein and loved Otterbein and graduated,” Palmer said. She ended up back in New York for an internship at CBS Casting that she says showed her another side of the acting business. “I learned a ton from that,” she said. “I got to see a lot of plays and experience the city and decided that’s where I wanted to live after school.” She convinced her parents to let her stay an extra four weeks beyond the internship and landed a job as personal assistant with Jerry Stiller. “I went from seeing unemployed actors coming into a casting office trying to get cast to seeing professional successful actors who were working and getting to live that lifestyle,” Palmer said. She finished at Otterbein and then moved to New York. Palmer traces her confidence to her days in Loveland. “I was in ‘Sweet Charity’ at Loveland Stage Company my senior year,” she said. “That was what started giving me confidence; getting to be in shows outside of just my school. I was working with really fantastic people and it was a fantastic experience. Then I won the stage company scholarship for college. I am so grateful for all those opportunities.” Palmer left New York City after a few years and moved to Los Angeles to pursue roles in commercial acting, television and film. Like any actor, she has paid her dues along the way working, what she calls, “survival” jobs. Sure bartender was among them,

but the most interesting, lucrative and beneficial has been standardized patient. “I’ve done just about every silly little job you’ve heard of,” Palmer said. “I work as a standardized patient about two days a week. Medical students have to go through a series of exams. They see patients and have to try to figure out what’s troubling them. I’ve been doing that for about five years. It’s interesting because I get to use my acting skills.” Using her acting skills is finally paying off with attention for her role in “Paranormal Activity.” The lowbudget film, produced with practically nothing, tells the story of a young married couple moving into a house that seems to come alive with “Paranormal Activity” when they try to sleep. Response to the films limited release three weeks ago has turned it into a horror film phenomenon with a full nationwide release last week. “It was the No. 1 most ‘twittered’ thing for a week,” Palmer said. “I’m constantly getting messages from friends about who’s talking about it – it seems like it has infiltrated everything. It’s wild – especially for a movie that was made with just about nothing. The kind of press this is getting is priceless and I’m grateful for that.” Palmer always wanted to do a horror film and hopes to capitalize on the success of this film to help strengthen her acting career. This is getting her access to top managers, agents and publicists along with fan mail. She’s been offered a role in a film scheduled to be shot in France and she received a request to appear at a horror film convention. “I’d just like the opportunity to act,” she said and sometimes she just likes to get away from all the craziness and come home. “I love being able to come home there. It still feels like home; coming over the hill and seeing Loveland sort of lets me breathe and makes me feel back at home.”

The longing that never goes away We fear, as Francis Thompson feared as he ran from God, “Lest having thee, I might have naught else besides.” We also fear publicly admitting our need for God because of the secular implications that say only the mentally deficient believe in a God. In response to this fear of spirituality, James W. Jones, professor of religion at Rutgers University, says, “The struggle to find meaning by connecting with a universal, cosmic, moral and sacred reality represents not a failure of nerve, the onset of premature senility, or a lapse into neurosis, but is rather a natural part of the unhindered development process. The denial of this quest for the transcendent debilitates and impoverishes our life.” Got that? This doctor of

fulfillment … once we have caught in them a whiff of the future, we remain restless and urgent, seeking and searching beyond all experiences of fulfillment …” St. Augustine told us the same centuries ago, “You have made us for yourself, O God, and our hearts are ever restless until they rest in you.” Admit it or not, there is a spiritual component of our nature. It is a longing for the transcendent, for God. For a creature, total fulfillment will only be found permanently with its Creator. Strange, but many of us fear our spiritual longing. Why fear it? One reason is because we think it will cost us too much of our humanness and the enjoyment of this life. Paradoxically, it will increase it.

The experience of longing is familiar to everyone. Throughout a lifetime we long for myriads of things – a special toy, a friend, popularity, a lover, more money, better sex, a promotion, health and so it goes. Yet no matter what we acquire or achieve the ache of longing is never completely erased. Eventually there’s something or someone else we think we need in order to be happy. Longing is a sign of our incompleteness. We never reach a prolonged time when we hold something in our hands and say, “This is all I ever wanted and all I will ever need.” One of last century’s most prominent Protestant theologians, Jurgen Moltmann, wrote: “Once awakened by specific promises that stretch further than any

psychology at a prestigious university is telling us it’s quite normal to realize you long for God. You’re not neurotic or senile for doing so, you’re not weird; in fact you’re being true to your nature. It makes your life worse by not doing so. Spirituality is not optional. Certainly we need material possessions to live, and enjoyment to thrive, but we need a spiritual dimension to live fully. It enables us to find purpose and meaning and connects us our source and destiny. It fills out our picture. The fact that longing constantly nips at our heels proves it’s not optional. It’s

crucial for general health. “Among all my patients in the second half of life, that is to say over 35, there has not been one whose problem in the last resort was not that of finding a religious outlook on life,” wrote Carl Jung. Our consumer society tries to contradict that Jungian idea. It says our longing is exclusively for this world and this world can completely satisfy. Ridiculous! A society that tells its people they should live a certain way, if that way is fundamentally in opposition to what people are by nature, produces what Nietzsche termed the

Precision Radiotherapy has led the way in bringing some of the world’s most sophisticated cancer treatments to the Cincinnati area. One such treatment is fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy, a non-invasive therapy that enables physicians to keep cancer at bay with minimal risks or side effects. During fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy, a small burst of radiation is delivered to the lesion every day over a period of weeks. Delivering radiation in this way, rather than in a single, concentrated session, allows healthy tissue to recover between treatment sessions.

HOW CAN YOU REDUCE THE CHANCES OF A BRAIN TUMOR COMING BACK? For Joe, it was the perfect solution. He had been to two other centers in the region, telling him that his brain tumor was inoperable. He ultimately ended up at the University of Cincinnati Brain Tumor Center, where specialists successfully removed his oligodendroglioma tumor. Three years after the surgery the tumor reappeared. His specialists recommended fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy at Precision Radiotherapy to eliminate the recurrence. During his treatment, Joe settled into a comfortable routine, walking his sister’s dogs, writing music or playing guitar in the morning, and undergoing high-precision radiotherapy in the afternoon.

IT TAKES PRECISION. Today, Joe has experienced only minimal side effects, while his cancer remains at bay and his life moves forward. Precision Radiotherapy has given Joe peace of mind that there is life

“I feel blessed. I got a second chance at life. Other people need to know that there is hope. That there are other options out there. And that these people just might have the answer that others can’t find.“ – Joe

after a brain tumor, and he is dedicating his life to helping others deal with the challenges it brings. Other state-of-the-art treatments like Frameless Radiosurgery, Tomotherapy and Respiratory Robotics, also available at the Precision Radiotherapy Center, have brought hope and help to many other patients.

Chilly weather outside means chili inside Plus, Rita’s grandson ‘fishes’ for birthday dinner

I had to laugh when grandson Jack requested tilapia from Keegan’s Seafood for his fourth birthday’s dinner. It’s a small shop in Mount Washington owned by Tom Keegan. K e e Rita gan’s a Heikenfeld w a l k i n g encyclopeRita’s kitchen dia for seafood and loves showing the kids all the different varieties to make them more aware about eating healthy. The reason I laughed is when we were growing up, the only seafood we ate was frozen whiting, fried, and fresh bass caught by my Mom and brother, Charlie. I didn’t even know what

tilapia was until I was in my 30s. We need to support independent folks like Tom. So if you have a favorite independent deli/grocer, etc. let me know and I’ll feature them and a signature recipe in an upcoming column. I want to hear from readers across the board: north, south, east and west!

Herb crusted halibut

Any nice white fish will do. When I teach seafood classes, this is a student favorite. Four servings halibut, skinless, 6 to 8 oz. each 1 ⁄2 cup approx. Dijon mustard Salt and pepper 1 ⁄2 cup basil, finely chopped 1 ⁄4 cup each: cilantro, mint, parsley, chives and dill, finely chopped Butter Pat fish dry. Season both sides of fish with salt and pepper and lightly brush both sides with mustard. Combine herbs and place in shallow dish. Press both sides of fish into herb mix-

ture, coating evenly. In a nonstick pan, melt about 2 tablespoons butter and turn heat to medium. Add fish. Cook several minutes on each side, until done. Tips from Rita’s kitchen: Don’t overcook fish. When it flakes easily, it’s done. Seafood 101: Watch my cable TV show with Tom on Union Township TV (Warner 8 and 15) to learn all you need to know about seafood.

Melissa’s Schaiper’s easy chicken chili

There’s a good amount of interest in the chicken chili Good Samaritan serves in their cafeteria. Friend, great cook and Good Sam’s cath lab queen (my given title) Kay Hitzler found out it’s a purchased product.

Kay’s group in the catheter lab held a tailgating lunch and Melissa Schaiper, a colleague of Kay’s, brought a crockpot chicken chili that was a huge hit. Kay said Melissa’s chili is a bit spicier than Good Sam’s. So I would say use a mild salsa.

communitypress.com and at www.abouteating.com

Rita’s lower fat Fiddle Faddle clone

I developed this for the book “Sports Nutrition for Idiots.” Flaxseed is optional and the store-bought version doesn’t contain this. 4 cups popped corn 1 tablespoon flaxseed 1 cup caramel ice cream topping, heated in microwave

Spray crockpot. Add:

1 pound chicken breast 4 cups canned Great Northern beans 12 oz. salsa 1 teaspoon each: cumin and garlic Cook six hours on low. An hour before serving, stir in 4 ounces of pepper jack cheese. Serve with 4 more ounces of cheese. Tips from Rita’s kitchen: If you want, stir in more cumin and garlic after six hours. More chili recipes: In my online column at www.

Mix popcorn and flax. Pour topping over, stirring to coat as well as you can. Pour onto sprayed cookie sheet. Bake in preheated 250degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Makes 4 cups.

Rooting out recipes

Fern’s chili. For Pam Timme. “It was in the Enquirer long ago and I’ve lost it.” I’m wondering if it’s Fern Storer’s recipe. She was the Post food editor for years and a wonderful cook. Red Lobster’s sun-

dried tomato salad dressing. For Dwight. He had no luck calling the company. (They don’t serve it anymore). He also went online, researched recipe books, etc. Mio’s creamy garlic dressing. Spoke with Chris Forbes, owner of the Milford Mio’s. “Can’t divulge it. There’s garlic, sour cream, milk, pepper and sugar in it.” When I asked if there was any vinegar, lemon juice, etc., he said no. If anyone has a creamy garlic recipe similar, please share. Bravo’s strawberry lasagna for Betty Hawley. I’m giving up on this Augusta, Ky., restaurant’s dessert. I’ve made several calls to the owner, who at first thought she might share, but she hasn’t returned my calls.

Circle of Women to host benefit luncheon The YWCA Circle of Women will hold a benefit luncheon Thursday, Nov. 5, to raise funds for the support of programs provided by the YWCA Eastern Area. The Eastern Area YWCA provides numerous programs to address the problem of domestic violence in Clermont, Brown and Adams counties. These include the House of Peace Battered Women’s Shelter, a 24-hour crisis hot line, crisis intervention, education and training, health and wellness, advocacy services and more.

This year, the Circle of Women event will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the presence of the YWCA in the Eastern area. Domestic violence is the largest single cause of injury to women, and the most underreported crime in America. And, recent statistics show the problem is not getting better: • There has been a 33 percent increase over the past three years in domestic violence reports received by the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office.

• There has been a 30 percent increase in domestic violence cases in the Clermont County Domestic Relations Court over the past five years. • There has been a 30 percent increase in calls to the YWCA Eastern Area crisis hotline over the past three years. • Reduced governmental funding has created a more critical need for funds to continue the vital services provided by the YWCA. The Circle of Women was established to be a vehicle through which the YWCA

Supporters host evening of hope Approximately 340 friends and supporters of The Wellness Community gathered at the historic Laurel Court for the 2nd annual “Evening of Hope ... A Celebration of Life” presented by Mercy Health Partners. In addition to raising nearly $70,000 to support the free and professionally facilitated programs of support, education, and hope offered by TWC for people with cancer, their loved ones, and cancer survivors, attendees at the gala event also recognized 2009 honorees Chuck and Julie Geisen Scheper. The Northern Kentucky couple first became involved with TWC in 1992 and have leveraged their own experiences with cancer to bring hope to many others struggling with the disease and other health difficulties. The evening’s festivities included a VIP reception, silent and live auctions, dinner and entertainment by the Rusty Griswolds. Co-chairs April Davidow and Linda Green planned the spectacular fall event, along with committee members Aaron Bley, Betsy Baugh, Judy Dombar, Kate Gonzalez, Flannery Higgins, Pete Horton, Rita Jones, Christy Neyer, Molly

Three local Jewish congregations, Ohav Shalom, B’Nai Tzedek and Beit Chaverim, will sponsor a movie night Saturday, Nov. 14. The event will take place at Ohav Shalom, 8100 Cornell Road in Sycamore Township, and will start at 6:30 p.m. with a Havdalah service. Following the service, attendees will be able to choose from two movies: “Arranged,” or “Walk on Water.” “Arranged” is the story of Rachel, an Orthodox Jew, and Nosira, a Muslim of Syrian origin. Both are young teachers at a public school in Brooklyn and both are going through the process of getting “arranged” marriages. The film, which has won

numerous awards, touches on a wide variety of themes including traditional values vs. contemporary values and Jewish-Muslim relations. The second movie choice, “Walk on Water,” is an action flick, which follows Israeli characters, including a Mossad assassin, to Berlin, as an assignment forces them to confront the role of the past in the lives of young Israelis and young Germans. The film touches on a wide range of themes including the lingering effects of Nazism and the Holocaust. The soundtrack features contemporary offerings from a number of artists, including Bruce Springsteen. Following each movie, discussion leaders will

engage audiences in an optional dialogue about the themes and questions raised by each movie. Light refreshments and the awarding of raffle prizes, as well as social time will conclude the evening. Movie night costs $6 per person, including the films and refreshments. Contact 489-3399 or 984-3303 for further information. Movie night will be the first of three such evenings designed to provide the community with the opportunity to watch Jewish themed movies and to discuss them afterwards. This event is part of a developing three congregational collaboration to provide innovative adult education programming to the entire community.

The search for a simpler way to live has inspired the launch of a socially conscious, environmentally responsible e-commerce retail company, Lovelandbased Tava Energy. Tava Energy challenges everyone to be more environmentally responsible and plans to make achieving that goal convenient for the consumer. The core of this company revolves around the concepts of recycling and reusing materials. The products featured support this philosophy and provide the consumer a unique and fun way of showing their commitment to preserve the environment. Tava Energy says that there are no rules to being green. “Our company was built from the ground up with our customers in mind,” said Tava president John Vonasek, who along with his wife Jenny, started the company in 2008. “By giving consumers a better selection of products that have less impact on our environment, we believe Tava will fill a void for frustrated consumers.” Tava Energy also strongly believes in the importance of charity, social consciousness and environmental responsibility. They support organizations that provide scientific research that will create solutions to environmental issues and a portion of the profits will be donated to these causes. “Some people have asked us why Tava Energy selected an ant for its mascot. Not only do ants have the largest brain in the insect world, but scientists have compared the processing power in an ant’s brain to be similar to a computer,” John Vonasek said. “The teamwork shown among ants is to be highly respected. On jobs they cannot accomplish alone, they join together to achieve amazing feats. These same characteristics are what Tava Energy believes is needed to work towards saving our planet.” For more information visit www.tavaenergy.com. You can reach Tava Energy at 304-0234 or email John Vonasek directly at john@tavaenergy.com.

Succession planning for your small, family business There comes a point in time when an owner of a family business or small business should contemplate the orderly transition of business management and ownership. Business succession planning seeks to manage issues associated with retirement and/or death of an owner and for those who own a business, this is an important aspect of your estate planning. Unfortunately, many business owners do not make business succession planning a high priority. For many small business owners, maintaining positive cash flow and just surviving can be an ongoing battle that consumes virtually all the owner’s time. Business succession planning is often ignored until it is too late, often with catastrophic financial consequences. If you own a family or small business, it is likely the single largest asset of your net worth and so it is an essential and necessary portion of your estate planning. While traditional estate plans are designed with avoiding probate and tax minimization in mind, business succession planning, in addition to such considerations, is aimed at maintaining the future health of the business after you retire, pass on or sell the business. Failing to plan in advance can have severe and unintended conse-

quences. In some cases, estate taxes alone can claim more than half of a taxable estate. RaisDavid ing the Lefton money to the Community pay taxes can Press guest result in columnist b u s i n e s s e s being sold or having to liquidate their assets. This risks leaving family members or key employees unemployed. Thus, one of the more important aspects of business succession planning involves analyzing and answering questions. Regardless of the succession issue, the goal is to set up a smooth transition plan between the owner and future owners to help ensure the success of the business and avoid catastrophic consequences to the owner or his/her estate and heirs. An estate planning attorney who has worked with small businesses can help you put together an effective succession plan and help ensure the smooth operation of the business. Getting the help you need from an experienced professional is the best way to assure your loved ones will not have to cope with some very difficult issues. David H. Lefton is an estate planning and probate attorney who lives in Symmes Township.

The Goldstein Family Learning Academy will unveil its fall JLI course, “SoulQuest: The Journey Through Life, Death, and Beyond.” The twin mysteries of life and death have fascinated philosophers and laymen alike since the dawn of time. “This course addresses the most commonly asked questions about the soul’s journey,” said Rabbi Yisrael Rice, the course author. “And then some not-so-common questions that many people have never even thought of.” Participants will find comfort in understanding the soul’s journey. Lessons will examine a range of classic Jewish sources, drawing extensively from the Talmud and Kabbalah. This new course will be offered at Chabad Jewish Center for either six Thursday mornings or Monday evenings. Morning classes begin: 9:30-11 a.m., Thursday, Nov. 5, and evening classes begin: 7:30-9 p.m., Monday, Nov. 9. The course costs $70, and there is a 10 percent Discount for Couples.

There is a joke among friends here, “It’s a Phoenix that has risen from the ashes. ”When Charles and Allison Hahn Sobieck purchased the property at 502 North Main Street (in Somerset, Kentucky), there was a lot of work to be done, to say the least. With the vision of a B & B and a home in ruins, there were little choices. The dilapidated structure was removed, then reconstructed as it had been in the 1850’s. It’s a brand new home. A bit of an unusual concept for a bed and breakfast. “We reconstructed the home from scratch. This gave us the benefit of designing every amenity possible along the way, ”said Allison Sobieck, owner. Every room is equipped with many amenities you don’t often find in a traditional bed and breakfast, but rather a fine hotel. Every room has a full sized closet with a pair of micro-fiber robes hanging in them, 400- count Egyptian cotton sheets, cable TV with DVD players, queen sized beds, and a host of other things. For instance, 2 rooms have gas fireplaces and 3 rooms have whirlpool tubs. We even offer many add on amenities such as massage, dinner, flowers, etc…

The rooms are only half of the reason to come to The Doolin House. Owners Charles and Allison just happen to both be chefs. Some of the breakfast specialties include Caramel Banana French Toast and Southern Eggs Benedict (2 fried green tomatoes topped with 2 slices of smoked bacon, 2 eggs over easy and Hollandaise). Chuck is usually in charge of breakfast and tries to do new and different things every day. Chef Chuck pointed out, “It’s fun to experiment with breakfast. It’s the one meal that encompasses all foods. It’s perfectly acceptable to see smoked salmon or a pork cutlet at the breakfast table. ”For those in no rush to rise and shine, breakfast in bed is served at no additional charge. When you need a weekend get away that’s not too far from home or you are planning your summer vacation to beautiful Lake Cumberland, remember that The Doolin House Bed and Breakfast is only a phone call away.
