$1.00 BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Local artist uses his talent to give back to Milford HS autism unit Sheila Vilvens svilvens@communitypress.com

Putting his art skills to work, one Milford High School graduate is giving back to those who have helped him. 2011 graduate Aaron Strait recently visited the Milford High School autism unit where he attended classes. Through the sales of his own paintings and cards, reproduced from his art, he was able to present an $850 check to his former teacher, Trena Panko. “Aaron is a very gifted and caring individual and I just love him,” Panko said. “We are so proud of his contributions and appreciate his generosity. He has been working as an artist since 2010 and his talents have been nurtured by his family and his school community.” Strait’s donation will go towards the expenses related to a service dog the Milford High School autism unit is receiving through 4 Paws out of Xenia, Ohio. Strait’s mother, Dawn Strait Wallace, said her son is enthusiastic about selling his artwork and making contributions to organizations that offer programs benefiting children with autism spectrum disorder. Because of this, he and his family established Aaron’s Art for Autism

through which Strait uses proceeds from his artwork to make his donations. Over the years, Strait has attended various programs including one at the Cincinnati Center for Autism, Wallace said. A few years ago, Strait decided to donate one of his paintings for the silent auction held at the center’s annual fundraising gala. His efforts snowballed from there to other charity events and to private shows. Wallace, also an artist, said Strait has a unique way that he works. “It’s somewhat different than how a usual artist goes about their work,” she said. When Strait first began painting, Wallace said she was looking for an outlet to help him socialize. “When he’s at the art studio, he’s very social,” she said. “He’s on an equal flooring on every level.” Strait studies with professional artist Keith Klein. “He has worked well with Aaron and let Aaron be Aaron,” Wallace said. As his experience, talent and notoriety grow, the price his artwork commands also grows. Recently a piece of Strait’s art sold for $500, Wallace said.

tools for economic development, you’re better off,” he said. Anderson Township is an example of how an economic development plan and the existence of an active economic development committee can benefit a community. Over the last two-plus years Anderson has seen significant activity in commercial development. In 2008 Anderson Township appointed an Economic Development Committee. At the staff level, this is a business and community led group, according to Anderson Township Assistant Administrator for Operations Steve Sievers. The group developed the philosophy that “The mission of

economic development in Anderson Township is to protect the community’s assets by advocating for competitive services; retain existing and foster growth of new businesses; and facilitate quality development/ redevelopment, and improve the retail, office, and industrial offerings in the community, which subsequently improve residential property values and stabilize Anderson’s tax base,” he said. This has been the township’s guide in its effort to build upon the quality of life and community-based assets, Sievers said. By offering tax incentives See PIERCE, Page 2A

Today motorists traveling the stretch of Ohio 125 in Pierce Township see a mixed landscape of new and established businesses along with vacant buildings and for sale signs. The hope of Pierce Township leadership is to change this landscape to include fewer for sale signs and more new businesses. To achieve this vision, in late 2015 the Pierce Township Board of Trustees appointed an Economic Development Committee. One of the committee’s first tasks was to create a Comprehensive Economic Development Plan. A draft of the plan

the trustees took a step in this direction by approving participation in the Ohio Enterprise Zone Program through Clermont County. The enterprise zone is an economic development tool administered by the municipal and county governments and it provides real and personal property tax exemptions to businesses making investments in a community. The new enterprise zone could be tied to a package of incentives for development projects, Trustee Allen Freeman said. He is the trustee representative to the Economic Development Committee. This is a first step, he said. “When you have multiple

Newly sworn in Commissioners David Painter and Ed Humphrey.

Commissioners Humphrey, Painter sworn in Ed Humphrey and David Painter were sworn in as Clermont County commissioners Dec. 30. Humphrey is beginning his third term. Commissioner Painter is replacing longtime Commissioner Bob Proud, who retired. Both men were elected in November. Humphrey, who is also president of the County Commissioner Association of Ohio, was sworn in by Jesse Kramig, a senior assistant attorney general with the Ohio AttorneyGeneral’s Cincinnati office. “I thank God for allowing me to be here,” Humphrey said. On Dec. 3, 2015, Humphrey suffered serious injuries in a car accident in Miami Township. He thanked his “bride of 49 years,” Janice, and his family, for staying by his side during his long rehabilitation. He reminisced that his daughter, Gail, at the time in Singapore, hopped on a jet within two hours of hearing about his accident for the 45-hour flight back to Cincinnati. He thanked Commissioners Bob Proud and David Uible for their support during his recuperation. Humphrey was first elected to the Board of County Commissioners in 2008. Previously, he was a longtime Miami Township trustee. He is the past president of the OhioKentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments Board of Directors, and is now a member. He was appointed by Gov. John Kasich to serve on the statewide ESINET Steering Committee to represent CCAO. He also serves on the Clermont County CIC Inc., the Clermont County Investment Advisory Committee, and the Adams/Clermont Solid Waste Management District Board of Directors. Humphrey is a lifelong resident of Miami Township. He and his wife, Janice, have three children and eight grandchildren. Humphrey, who has an MBA from the University of Cincinnati, is retired from Procter & Gamble. Painter was sworn in by Municipal Court Judge

He said he felt called to public service. “My commitment to you is steadfast,” he said. “Together we will raise the bar for all Clermont County citizens...My door will always be open and my cell phone will always be on.” He previously served for eight years on the New Richmond Village Exempted School District Board of Education, two of those as president of the Board. Previously he was on the Ohio Township Board of Zoning Appeals. Painter’s past experience includes 40 years in the construction and engineering business, having held positions as resident construction manager, project oversight manager, regional manager and general manager. Painter joins the Board of Clermont County Commissioners after a career in private industry, where he last served as the project oversight manager at the East Tennessee Technology Park (K-25) Environmental Remediation Project. Painter is a lifelong resident of Clermont County, and lives in New Richmond with his wife, Karla. They have three children and four grandchildren. Painter received his bachelor of science degree from the University of Findlay.

Greenberg will replace Judge Melissa Powers, who was elected in November to the Hamilton County Juvenile Court. Veterans Treatment Court Greenberg is a judgesupervised treatment program whose goal is to help United States Veterans address the issues that led to contact with the criminal justice system. The Veterans Treatment Court relies on the cooperation between the criminal justice system, The Department of Veterans Affairs, and community treatment agencies to provide comprehensive treatment for veterans. Greenberg has been serving on the Municipal Court since 2006. He will continue to preside over his regular criminal and civil dockets in addition to Veterans Treatment Court duties. uses for Ohio 125. “So far I’ve met with five or six different commercial developers to get their thoughts,” he said. There are two to three different “nodes” along 125 for activity, Freeman said. In the area between Merwin Ten Mile and Kroger, there’s a theater, dining and shopping node, he said. Moving toward Hamlet, there’s a node that’s suited to other commercial development. With potential uses identified and incentives in place, the township will be positioned to market itself to developers, Freeman said.

Remke Markets Makes Online Grocery Shopping Convenient Pat Iasillo Over the past decade our world has become more accustomed to shopping online for the products we want. It makes sense not to waste time and effort shopping if we can just as easily click a few buttons to accomplish the same thing. However, there has been some reluctance when it comes to products we like to feel and touch before we buy. We don’t mind purchasing a book online or the latest toy, but some of us like to try on a pair a shoes before we buy them or like to feel the material on an article of clothing. The same thing is even more true when it comes to shopping for food. We want to be

in control when we pick our apples or our lettuce, or a beef roast. Therefore, shopping online for our groceries has met with some resistance. It can also be painful to sort through over 30,000 products to find what we want. That is all changing. Remke Markets has carefully thought through these issues before we offered an online solution to our customers. After all, we have been in business for almost 120 years, partly because we keep the wants and needs of our customers at the top of the list on our approach to the grocery business. That is why we offer something a little different; a personal shopper. Our personal shoppers

are carefully chosen to be as picky as our pickiest customers when it comes to choosing what to put in the basket. They also are people who are anxious to learn just what you like, how you like it, and if they don’t know, they will call you and ask before they choose. We feel confident you will be pleased that your shopper will far exceed your expectations. Couple a personal shopper with the ease of the Remke Mobile Markets website and you have a means of shopping for your groceries that is second to none. With your registration of your Remke Rewards card on our website, you now have access to the top 100 items you normally purchase at your fingertips. You may also like to shop our weekly ad. Now all you need do is click on an item when viewing our ad and presto, it

is on your shopping list. In addition, we have made it simple to shop for anything in our store by using our search bar, or by searching through every department and category. We even have an app available for download on your Apple or Android mobile device, and you can use it to scan the UPC barcodes of the items in your house to add them directly to your list. Once you finish your order, you may choose a pick up time even on the same day! Drive to the store, call or text the phone number on the sign posted in our designated pick up spot, and your order will be brought out and loaded into your car. Scan your credit card and you are on your way. The fee is waived on your first four orders so you have nothing to lose to give Remke Mobile Markets a try!

SCHOOLS NOTEBOOK Amelia/Great Oaks

Batavia/Great Oaks

» Amelia High School/Great Oaks senior Dylan Guth was elected to serve as treasurer of the 2016-2016 State Officer Team at the Business Professionals of America Fall Leadership Conference in November. Guth will be travel to Columbus for monthly leadership training sessions to enhance the leadership skills of the officer team. With the assistance of state advisor Amy BurGuth ris, the team is charged with planning and conducting the State Leadership Conference in March and the 2017 Fall Leadership Conference. At the annual conference, 12 state officer candidates campaigned for six leadership positions. Amelia High School had three students running for positions, juniors Lauren Alvarado and Lucy Wesley, along with Dylan Guth. The students are all part of the Business Management program, a Great Oaks Career Campus program offered at Amelia High School. To qualify to campaign for officer, the candidates were required to participate in state officer screening. The screening process consisted of an objective test, an essay, a prepared speech and an interview before a panel of three judges. From the screening, 12 of the 80 candidates who screened were selected to campaign at the Fall Leadership Conference.

» Dylan Young stays busy. As a student in the Great Oaks Legal Office Management program at Batavia High School, he is chapter president of the Business Professionals of America, has helped the Batavia BPA chapter win national awards and raise more than $49,000 for Special Olympics, and was a member of the state champion and national competitor Global Marketing Team. Young If that’s not enough, he is one of the top students in his class with a 4.07 GPA and is captain of the Batavia cross country and track teams. That’s why he’s one of five Ohio finalists to become a U.S. Presidential Scholar. “Dylan leads by example, accepts his responsibilities as a school representative with maturity, and is in charge of his future,” Great Oaks instructor Angie Kovacs, who nominated him, said. Young is completing an internship with Judge Victor Haddad as part of his legal office management studies. He has been involved in the community, raising funds and awareness for the Susan G. Komen Foundation, honor flights, the Ohio River Sweep Project, the WAVE Foundation and more. He was a Rotary Club Student of the Month, Homecoming court member, and class vice president. Perhaps the activity with the greatest impact on his community has been helping to plan and organize a nationally-recognized effort to encourage teenagers to wear seat belts. “Dylan’s effective time management skills allow him to successfully balance his academic career and athletic interests while giving back to the community,” Kovacs said.

If chosen as a U.S. Presidential Scholar, Young will be flown to Washington, D.C., in June for a White House ceremony and the chance to meet authors, scientists, musicians, educators, government officials and other accomplished people. As a student in the Great Oaks Career Campus program, he will be honored in January at the Ohio Association for Career and Technical Education conference in Columbus.

Bone broth, purple food trending for new year Broccoli cheddar soup like Panera It was a request I had to fill. “Do you have a recipe for cheddar broccoli soup like Panera?” I looked up a bunch of recipes and found a few that sounded promising. I tried out a couple and adapted only slightly to suit my taste. I used my chicken bone broth. Find a step-by-step photo primer on my abouteating.com site for both the bone broth and this recipe. 2 tablespoons butter 3/4 to 1 cup finely diced onion (not sweet or red) 4 tablespoons melted butter 4 tablespoons flour Dijon mustard - to taste, start with a little and go from there 2 cups half & half 2 cups low sodium, fat free, chicken broth Heaping 3 cups broccoli, chopped - I used frozen, thawed 1 nice carrot, cut into matchsticks, a heaping cup Nutmeg to taste - I grated a whole nutmeg and used a generous 1/4 teaspoon 8 oz. extra sharp or sharp grated cheddar plus extra for garnish Salt and pepper to taste THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR We need to slow down I’m very fortunate to live in one of the many lovely neighborhoods off of Branch Hill Guinea Road. However, I continue to be shocked by the reckless disregard that drivers have for speed limits and traffic signs on our streets. I am one of many who walk my dogs when I get home in the evening. Cars routinely speed by me at more than twice the 25 MPH posted limit, rolling through stop signs is also a common occurrence. Many of our streets do not have sidewalks and I therefore walk on the side of the road. With winter upon us, I find that I am always walking in the dark. I have taken to stepping well off the road into yards anytime I hear or see a car coming in any direction. I’m sorry to say that it us, the residents, who are the worst offenders. Dads and moms racing to and from appointments or practices and events, often with our own children in the backseat. Please remember that your neighbors are regularly out on the streets, walking animals, riding bikes or getting some exercise, many wearing headphones while doing so. They don’t hear you and you don’t see them. Some common sense will help reduce the likelihood of accidents; if you’re out at night wear high visibility clothes or take a flashlight. The speed limits and posted signage are there for a reason. Let’s not wait for a tragedy to happen before we slow down. Carl R. Donisi Miami Township

2017: The year of the under-skin microchip? Posing the question “What will the world look like in 2017?” NBC news anchor Brian Williams stirred controversy during his May 15, 2007, broadcast when he suggested that subcutaneous RFID “microchip” technology might be used to track and identify people. Despite strenuous denials by so-called “fact-checking” organizations like Snopes.com that the Federal government has any such plans, on Dec. 8, 2016, the U.S. House of Representatives passed House Resolution 4919, “Kevin and Avonti’s Bill,” named after two autistic boys who drowned after wandering from home. H.R. 4919 amended the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, reauthorizing the Missing Alzheimer’s Disease Patient Alert Program which permitted the tracking of Alzheimer’s sufferers who tend to wander. “To reduce injury and death of missing Americans,” H.R. 4919 authorizes the U.S. Attorney General to extend tracking to cover Americans with dementia and developmental disabilities. The bill changes the focus of government action from “Alzheimer’s Disease Patient” to “Americans.” In an eloquent and detailed 15-minute speech, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), a former prosecutor and judge, attacked the bill’s language as too broad and imprecise, and questioned the wisdom of authorizing the attorney general (a political appointee) not only to write the rules and regulations regarding setting up such a tracking program and the accessibility of the data generated, but also to interpret and rule on specific cases. Memories of attorneys general Loretta Lynch (Hillary’s e-mail scandals), John

Ashcroft (the “Patriot Act”) and Janet Reno (Waco and Ruby Ridge) come to mind. Noting recent labeling of some veterans and senior citizens by government agencies Randy as ineligible to own Kleine guns, and citing the COMMUNITY PRESS evolution of the DiagGUEST COLUMNIST nostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Gohmert worries that “developmentally disabled” is much too broad a term. Tea partiers (who oppose government expansion), “climate-change deniers” and those holding politically-incorrect religious beliefs might be considered “mentally unstable,” hence subject to “tracking.” Following heart-wrenching appeals like that of Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY), the House passed “Kevin and Avonti’s Bill” 346 to 66 with 21 not voting. Bill co-sponsor Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) joined three liberal Ohio Republican congressmen and a “Who’s Who” of congressional leftwingers to vote “Yea,” while conservative Republicans like Kentucky’s Thomas Massie, and Ohio’s Jim Jordan and Warren Davidson voted “Nay.” Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) did not vote. No one doubts the good intentions of those seeking to protect Alzheimer’s or autism-spectrum patients, but a badlyworded and unconstitutional bill like H.R. 4919 can be misconstrued, setting a bad precedent that is difficult to reverse once enacted. Randy Kleine is a resident of Milford.

Jan. 4 question What should be the priorities for President-elect Trump during his first 100 days?

“I believe he will be pretty much unable to set priorities until overcoming the obstacles being thrown in his path as quickly as the outgoing administration can. The efforts to deligitimize everything in his opening decisions will be heralded by the ‘no longer necessary’ press, media blogs and testing by the other world powers. “To start with a $20 trillion debt, repairing damage of the last-minute spitefulness of John Kerry with Israel, and the demand to return to Cold War status with Russia, as proclaimed by Obama, will create a very legitimate possibility of the No. 1 priority to be figuring out how to get out of this job, that he foolishly, but thankfully, sought. So far, his cabinet picks seem to have all been tested in the ‘fires of the unknowns.’ He now must seek counsel. This job is way to ‘Yuuuge’ to go alone or to believe there are easy solutions. I believe in prayer and know we all need to have real hope.” D.B.

Thompson two-steps to Tennessee State Scott Springer sspringer@communitypress.com

MILFORD - The outdoor crack of the bat is still a few months away, but Milford High School softball pitcher Valerie Thompson has been perfecting her craft pretty much non-stop since the summer. “I have to pitch constantly to keep up and stay at the level I’m at,” Thompson said of her weekly lessons. That’s on top of workouts three times a week and playing in an indoor league at Rialto Sports in West Chester with a few other high school squads. Heading into her fourth year in the circle as a pitcher for the Lady Eagles, she hopes to bring home a fourth consecutive Eastern Cincinnati Conference championship to Milford. Last season, she was 19-3 for coaches Christy and Tim Gregory as the girls had their first-ever undefeated conference record. Thompson led the ECC in wins and was second in strikeouts with 134 in 145.2 innings. She also led the league in shutouts with 10 and earned run average at 1.01. Her laundry list of postseason awards included All-Ohio honorable mention, All-City first team, Ohio Spring AllStars Co-Player of the Year, Cincinnati.com/Enquirer finalist for softball Player of the Year, first team ECC, first team All-Academic ECC and the “Eagle Award” as the Milford team MVP. Trophy hauls like that don’t come easy. In addition to the spring school season, it comes from living out of a suitcase for much of the sum-

mer on travel teams. “I’ve been to Tennessee, Alabama, Indiana, Illinois and a lot of places,” Thompson said of her summer soirees on dirt diamonds. At one of her stops in Nashville between her sophomore and junior year, she caught the eye of Tennessee State softball coach Tom Opdenbrouw. She had recently participated in a showcase camp in Chattanooga where Opdenbrouw first spotted her. After watching Thompson pitch, she was invited for a campus visit which led to an eventual offer. “I didn’t accept right away,” Thompson said. “I went and visited a few other colleges, but everywhere else didn’t compare to Tennessee State.” The signing is a culmination of a trek she has take since before she was 10. She has been a four-year varsity player for Milford and the solid starter for the last three seasons. She split time as a freshman because the junior varsity was short on pitching. “I think the Gregorys did a good job of exposing me and getting me ready,” Thompson said. The married coaching pair saw enough in Thompson to start her as a freshman in the ECC championship game against Glen Este. To date, that remains her most memorable pitching performance. Plus, she knocked in the winning run to boot. At the plate, she swings a respectable lefty bat, hitting .338 last season with 22 runs batted in. Many girls are trained to bat left-handed in order to slap the ball down the line with a quicker path to

first. Thompson’s swing is natural. “I’m not fast enough to be a slapper, so I swing away,” she joked. Thompson sees Kings and Turpin as Milford’s top competition in their quest to add a fourth league title. Then, after another summer of cleats and leather, she’ll be off to Music City as an environmental science major at Tennessee State. “I’m really outdoorsy, so that’s a good major for me,” she said. “I’m really excited to be a part of this new team they’re building. I think I’m going to have the opportunity to play. Of course, I’m going to have to work for it.”

THANKS TO TROY THOMPSON

KENWOOD - Carl Kremer boarded a plane in Florida New Year’s Eve with yet another trophy, 500 career wins as head basketball coach at Moeller High School and a hardearned smile. The undefeated Crusaders dispatched three national programs, with the last win over Tampa Sickels being the 500th. Not a bad way to end a year. By the second day of 2017, Moeller was in the weight room and hoisting up shots for another challenging weekend of games. That’s how Kremer got to 500 wins, slowly and methodically. He actually doesn’t remember the first win of the string, but vividly recalls the first game, a stinging defeat at the hands of the Forest Park Chargers (Forest Park and Greenhills merged to form Winton Woods in the early ‘90s). “They killed us,” Kremer said, still sounding somewhat disgusted. “They had some really good players back then.” Occasionally, Kremer will have lunch or conversations with players from those early teams. Some have sent their own kids to Moeller. Since his start in 1990, the Crusaders have won 18 Greater Catholic League championships, 12 district titles, and five regional championships. Moeller has won three state titles under Kremer (1999, 2003, 2007) and was runner-up in 2010. As a program, they could reach 800 wins this season, with the bulk of those coming on Kremer’s watch. “It’s amazing how quickly my career has gone,” he said. “Just the fact that I’ve coached in that many games is kind of amazing.” Moeller has won or shared the last four GCLSouth titles and appears to be an early favorite for another based on their nonconference slate. “We have a lot of guys who can do a lot of different things,” Kremer said. “We don’t need one guy to carry us. All of our guys can defend pretty well, rebound pretty well and all five starters can handle the ball. We just have a lot of balance.” Senior Keegan McDowell will play in college at Liberty and leads the Crusaders in scoring. However, the Moeller first five

averages anywhere from eight to 15 points per game and any may lead the team on a given night. Junior Isaiah Payton and sophomore Miles McBride are in the backcourt, with versatile Caleb Canter and Riley Voss adding some height at 6-foot-4 and 6-foot-5, respectively. Canter is listed as a guard, but leads the league in rebounding and forward Voss shares the lead in assists with guard Payton. Juniors Jeremiah Davenport, Carlos Garcia and Jaxson Hayes are often the first off the bench, with Hayes being the tallest Crusader at 6-foot-8. In the Battle of the Villages tournament in Florida, Moeller defeated Archbishop Stepinac out of New York City, New Mission from Massachusetts and in-state Tampa Sickels. The opener against Stepinac was a trademark GCL slugfest at 40-35 against a team that had just posted 100 points. “We could have ended up in the loser’s bracket, very honestly,” Kremer said. “We were able to pull that out and we played much better the next two nights. It was really great experience going against a lot of pressure and extreme quickness.” McDowell who was award MVP honors, while Cornell-bound Riley Voss was Most Outstanding Performer. Canter, who is weighing basketball and baseball offers, made the All-Tournament team and McBride was named to the All-Rookie team. Moeller starts the GCLSouth slate with La Salle on Friday, Jan. 13, and then follows that the next day with Alter in the Kevin C. Barnhill Showcase at Little Miami. The following week is St. Xavier on Friday and Springfield on Saturday. There is no padding of the schedule at Moeller, which makes Kremer’s feat all the more amazing. “We really think that helps build us and keeps us sharp for the tournament,” Kremer said.

2017 came in without any help from me Howdy folks, Hope you had a good Christmas - I sure did. All my family was together on Christmas Day and we had a good meal and exchanged gifts. When all my family is together we can thank the good Lord for our health and a home that is warm with plenty of food. Last week was busy and sad for a lot of folks. I went to Goshen for a visitation for a lady that lost her husband. This lady works at the Sen-

ior Citizens Center above Batavia. Last Wednesday, Paula and I went to a fine restaurant and had breakfast George one of our faRooks vorite breakfasts is biscuits OLE FISHERMAN and gravy. I had a good New Year’s Eve; I went to bed at 9 p.m. I thought the New Year would come in without me staying up till midnight and it did.

A lot of things have happened in 2016. Many folks have been deer hunting and fishing and putting food on their table-that is good. I talked to Mike at the bait shop and he said the fishing this past weekend was extra good. Folks caught musky, catfish, crappie and of course my favorites, bluegills. I heard that Mike’s grandma is the matriarch of their family. Now I won’t tell you how young she is, but she has heard it thunder a few times. Saturday at the Kitchen of

Hope at the Bethel Methodist Church, there was a good crowd of more than 100 folks. This is a program I really enjoy helping with. Monday, Dan, Jerry and I went to Poochie’s for lunch. We had to wait along with some other folks to get a table, they were sure busy with it being a holiday. This is a good restaurant. Poochie’s has good food and very friendly folks working there. The folks like me that drink coffee enjoy that they keep their cups filled. Have you ever heard The Forest Airs sing? If not, you

have missed a good event. They will be singing at the Andersen Center so watch the paper for the times. I filled the birdfeeders the middle of last week so I needed to fill them again last Monday. I have eight feeders with suet blocks, thistle and birdseed. Start your week by going to the house of worship of your choice and praising the good Lord. God bless all...More later... George Rooks is a retired park ranger. He served for 28 years with the last five as manager of East Fork State Park.

15 years of hope delivering more than $1 million in aid The Aubrey Rose Foundation has been helping struggling families all over Greater Cincinnati and the US since 2001. Their mission is, and always has been, to help families that are caring for medically-fragile children suffering from life-threatening illnesses, while maintaining a focus on family unity. The Aubrey Rose Foundation gives families a means to lift the weight of life’s complexities during their difficult time by providing emotional and financial support. The 100 percent volunteer

driven non-profit organization was founded in memory of Aubrey Rose Hollenkamp who passed away suddenly in 2000, just before her third birthday. Aubrey’s parents, Jerry and Nancy Hollenkamp, started the foundation in Aubrey’s honor and to carry on her spirit. “Aubrey was always a very happy baby, throughout everything she endured, and she smiled continuously. She brought a great light into the world…we wanted to pass that light along.” Jerry Hollenkamp, Aubrey Rose Foundation founder

On Nov. 11, the Aubrey Rose Foundation celebrated 15 years of giving back during their 15th Annual “Let’s Dance for the Heart of It!” An Evening in Paris celebration at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza. More than 500 Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentuckians joined the foundation’s board and volunteers to celebrate a decade and a half of helping those in need. Guests enjoyed a gorgeous venue, delicious dinner and dessert, silent auction, music and dancing commemorating the tireless efforts of the Aubrey

Rose Foundation. The foundation also marked this momentous anniversary by honoring 5 area pediatric care physicians that were of the many nominated by tristate residents for the foundation’s prestigious “Doctor of the Year” award, with 1 being honored as “Above & Beyond” in pediatric care excellence. “Physicians like these are crucial to the unbelievable number of critically ill children and their families in need of help – their recognition is very well-deserved,” Nancy Hollenkamp

said. The 2016 Aubrey Rose Foundation Doctor of the Year Award Winners were: Dr. Ilias Illiopoulos (Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center) Dr. Marc Richardson (Pediatric Associates, Fairfield) Dr. Paul Rupp (Mercy Health) Dr. Stephanie Ware (Indiana University Medical Center – Genetics) Dr. Kenneth Zwergel (Tri Health Pediatrics) Dr. Paul Rupp was named “Above and Beyond” in his field.

Contact lenses may be easier to buy, thanks to FTC rule Demand for contact lenses has been growing over the past decade and there are more places than ever for consumers to shop for them. A Federal Trade Commission investigation found many consumers are not able to take advantage of all that competition because of actions taken by some lens prescribers. The FTC is proposing a rule amendment to make sure patients receive a copy of the contact lens prescription once the contact lens fitting is completed. The proposed amendment requires lens prescribers to get a signed acknowledgment from the patient after providing a copy of the prescription. The prescriber would have to keep a copy of the signed acknowledgment for at least three years. The Commission says, based on evidence reviewed by its staff, too many prescribers have failed to follow the law and provide portable prescriptions. It says more than 40 million U.S. consumers can benefit from contact lens competition. Consumers can get their contact lenses inperson, from eye-care providers, optical chains, wholesale clubs, and online as well. This rule makes sure consumers have the option to shop around for better prices or more convenient refills. Many people have switched from one-year lenses to daily disposable lenses. Prices for lenses can

vary widely, but without a prescription it’s hard for consumHoward ers to Ain shop around HEY HOWARD! for the best price, service and convenience. In fact, without the pressure of comparison shopping, the FTC says retail sellers are less likely to compete on price. The FTC says the Contact Lens Rule makes manufacturers more likely to develop a range of products that consumers want and can afford. It says there’s also a health and safety risk to less competition. “When replacement lenses and other products are too expensive or difficult to obtain, more people tend to over-use their old lenses and solutions in ways that can lead to eye infections,” the FTC says. The FTC says it is seeking comments on its proposed rule amendment and will have more information on it in the coming months. In the meantime, it’s important to remember the Contact Lens Rule in effect now does require prescribers to give you a written copy of your prescription so you can take it and shop around. Howard Ain appears as the Troubleshooter on WKRC-TV Local 12 News. Email him at hey howard@local12.com.

Third time is the charm at UC Clermont For Andrew Molloy, the third time - and UC Clermont - was the charm. After first enrolling in education programs at both UC’s Main Campus and Northern Kentucky University, Molloy was looking for Malloy a more personal, affordable college experience. He found an immediate connection and perfect fit at UC Clermont College. “I have fantastic professors; they are dedicated to making sure their students get the best education possible,” said Molloy, who is enrolled in UC Clermont’s pre-secondary English education program and plans to transfer to NKU to complete his bachelor’s degree. “The faculty members seem to really care, and class sizes are small enough that they are able to form personal relationships with their students.” That personalized experience is a common reason students are attracted to UC Clermont’s various education programs, said Kathleen Hulgin, assistant professor of education. “Our class sizes can range from 10 to 40 - large enough that students can

make meaningful connections with their peers, but small enough that they can speak with the professor after class to clarify an assignment or work through a struggle they’re experiencing,” Hulgin said. The college offers a variety of associate degree options in early childhood, pre-middle childhood, pre-secondary and pre-special education that transfer to bachelor’s degree programs in UC’s College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services or at NKU. .” For Hulgin, who has a background in inclusive education, working with future teachers at the beginning of their academic journeys is a reward in itself. “I love to see students’ interest in education develop and inspire them, in spite of challenges they may face,” Hulgin said. “I consider myself a partner with them in that process, and spend a good deal of time talking with and supporting students to manage time pressures and program requirements so they can graduate successfully. That’s exciting.” Learn more about UC Clermont’s education programs at www.ucclermont.edu.
