BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
Have you checked out the library lately? Jeanne Houck, Jennie Key and Sheila Vilvens email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
The word library immediately brings to mind a building full of shelves of books and smart, bookish people to help you find the one you want. Even the name contains the Latin work for book. But the library has expanded like a Narnian wardrobe in recent years. While there is still a building filled with books, the universe of services and information for which it serves as a gateway is expanding exponentially and at a dizzying speed. â€œStereotypically people still think of books when they think of libraries,â€? said Chris Wick, director of the Clermont County Public Library. â€œBut we have so much more to offer.â€? Wick says much of the collection of books, magazines, DVDs, CDs and other materials that libraries have to offer is now available 24-7, thanks to the expansion of electronic materials at public libraries. The programs and services offered by the 10 branches strategically placed throughout Clermont County have been developed based on the communitiesâ€™ needs. Wick says the library system has conducted focus groups, surveys and pays attention to the requests patrons make at the counters in the branches. The needs are also assessed by library representatives involved and engaged on boards, committees and partnerships in

Literacy and life-long learning are part of the libraryâ€™s DNA, so storytimes are based on early literacy programs, helping expose children and their parents to identified best practices in reading readiness. Every Child Ready to Read @ Your Library is a researchbased, early literacy initiative developed by the American Li-

Patrons can check out literacy kits designed to encourage a childâ€™s developing literacy skills. Each kit contains books, a CD, an educational toy, and a card with fingerplays all centered around a theme like colors or shapes. Students benefit from

School board sells Milford Main to city Jeanne Houck firstname.lastname@example.org
Milford Schools has agreed to sell the former Milford Main Middle School property to the city of Milford for $360,000 â€“ what it will cost the schools to demolish the building before the property transfer. The move comes less than a year after Milford City Council rejected a zone change that would have allowed a developer to tear down the century-old school at 525 Main St. and build Milford on Main, a three-story building with 92 apartments targeting empty nesters 55-yearsold and above. Although Milford offered to buy the 3.5-acre property at the Five Points intersection from

the Milford Exempted Village School District, it will take a vote of Milford City Council to seal the deal. Milford Mayor Laurie Howland is not sure when city council will vote on buying the Milford Main Middle School property â€“ much less what it will be used for in the future. â€œCouncil has not even begun to discuss the next step after we acquire the property,â€? Howland said. â€œThe first step was simply acquiring it so that we could in essence have a bit of control over the next step. â€œI am sure we will hear lots of ideas and suggestions from the public - which is good,â€? Howland said. â€œI just hope that whatever we

decide, it is something that the majority of the community can embrace.â€? The future of the former Milford Main Middle School was a hot topic that packed city council and school board chambers for two years. Milford Schools said in a statement on its website that other potential buyers recently have toured the building, but made no financially viable offers. â€œWe have exhausted all of our options,â€? Milford Schools Superintendent Robert Farrell said. â€œMilford Main has served this community for over 100 years and holds many great FILE PHOTO

Clermont County to begin installing upgraded water meters Clermont Countyâ€™s Water Resources Department is replacing customersâ€™ water meters with meters that will allow wireless transmission of water usage data. About 500 meters will be installed throughout the county, department Director Lyle Bloom said. The county will make sure these meters are operating correctly before beginning to install the rest of the meters. The county will reapproximately place 41,000 meters, and the project is expected to take until September 2017, Bloom said. A day or two before each meter upgrade, US Bronco Services (the installer) will notify each customer with a door hanger slip. On the day of the
upgrade, the installer will attempt to notify each customer shortly before the installation begins. The installation will take about 30 minutes, with water service unavailable for 15 minutes. Clermont County contracted with HD Supply Waterworks to provide the Advanced Metering Infrastructure System. HD Waterworksâ€™ installer is US Bronco Services. The project costs approximately $8 million, Bloom said. The AMI meters will transmit water usage information wirelessly to collector sites five throughout the county, project manager Kevin Kappers said. That information is then relayed to

an offsite billing and monitoring server. The new system will allow customers to have essentially pinpoint accuracy in determining water use. If a customerâ€™s bill reflects an unexpected spike, the department will be able to tell the customer what day and hour the spike occurred, Kappers said. The system will also be helpful in identifying leaks, he added. cautioned Bloom that the initial bills may look a little high. â€œAs meters get older, they get less accurate. The new meters will register a more accurate reading of actual water consumption,â€? he said. â€œSo people may see slightly higher bills after the new meters are installed.â€? Four maintenance techs read meters in Clermont County. They will be reassigned, Bloom said. No rate increases are planned as a result of this upgrade, he said.

MILFORD A BRANCH ON A DIFFERENT TREE Many libraries today work to connect with the largest number of people and to take advantage of technological advances that have led to, for example, electronic book sign-outs and computer classes. The Milford Public Library is different. The non-affiliated, 150-year-old library at 19 Water St. targets clients who love reading mysteries, thrillers and historic documents. And it keeps a firm eye on the past with â€œTea and Talkâ€? programs held at 2 p.m. on selected Saturdays at the library. The programs are free and open to the public. On Feb. 13, Cheryl Popp, director of Honor Flight TriState, will discuss the program that flies World War II and Korean veterans - as well as any veteran 65 years old and older - to Washington, D.C., to see their memorials. Popp, who lives in Symmes Township, also will talk about her new book, â€œLegacy of Courage: True Stories of Honor Flight Veterans,â€? which will be available for people to buy and Popp to sign. â€œWe all owe so much to the brave men and women who have fought for our freedom in the armed conflicts from our native shores,â€? library board President Colleen Binning said. On Feb. 27, Gary Knepp, a historian, teacher and attorney, will discuss the anti-slavery movement and sell and sign his book, â€œFreedomâ€™s Struggle.â€? And on March 19, Sondra Leibreich present â€œIf Hats Could Talk,â€? featuring hats from her wide collection dating back to the 1900s.
WHAT YOU PAY The net cost of the Clermont County Library levy to a taxpayer is $30.48 per $100,000 of property value, Clermont County Chief Deputy Auditor Chuck Tilbury said. The anticipated revenue for the Clermont County Library for 2016 is a very conservative estimate of $8,694,500, Library Fiscal Officer Mara Gray said. The budgeted expenses, for the general fund, are $8,491,217.93. The library will have a budget surplus of $203,282.07, she said. The annual report for 2015 is not prepared, but the funding percentages change very little from year to year, Gray said. In 2014, the Clermont County Library received 53.2 percent of its funding from the stateâ€™s public library fund. Property and other taxes represent 43.1 percent of the funding. Patron fines and fees account for 2.3 percent and other revenue 1.4 percent.

charge make it easier for patrons to use the libraries for job searches, to write resumes or to use the computers for business purposes. â€œIn some of our smaller communities, we might be the only source for a FAX or scanner,â€? she said. While the services are changing, librarians are still helping patrons navigate those services. Wick
says the Clermont system has a â€œBook-A-Librarianâ€? program that allows patrons to make appointments for one-on-one help. â€œThat can be a variety of things,â€? she said. â€œSome want to learn how to use their iPads. Make an appointment and learn how to create an email account or use our computers. We compile reading lists. Help patrons with data bases. â€œUltimately, we want to help patrons get the most out of their libraries.â€?

Little doubt - people love their libraries We asked readers: How often do you use your local library - and which branch(es) do you use? How do you use it - online, in person - and what are your favorite and most-used library services? How has your local library changed in the last 5-10-15 years? What changes do you see for libraries in the future? Here are some responses: “I think I use the Mount Washington branch about (once a month). I read for pleasure and I go to the branch to return a book and check out another book. I can use the Anderson, Mariemont and Hyde Park branches, but Mount Washington is closest and the staff is great. Because both of my arms tremble, I avoid the computer. I hope there will always be a library building nearby.” Barbara Christman, Mount Washington
“I live in Anderson so use the Anderson Branch. I love reading and read a book a week. So I am at our branch at least twice a month. Although there are many more services available to me, I only use the book loan system. Even though I don’t use all the services, there have been many added over the years. As far as future changes - probably more downloading of books using all the devices that are out there. I am old school and love the feel and portability of books. Since I spent the bulk of my career in the publishing business with print products, I love the written word.”
rent balance of ebook/ magazine access, and hard cover/physical material access...forever. “I would like to see ‘NO food or drink’ signs posted on the Anderson library doors. Mason library does this. (The downtown Main Library is filled w/ people bringing in both! Not appropriate.) I can see water bottle use, but that’s it! “Finally, if I need a bit of respite, I like to go to the library (’brick and mortar’) and just peruse material. You will see other people doing the same thing, at different times of
the day!” Kristine S. Harris. Anderson Township
“I have a Clermont County card and a Hamilton County card. We moved from the Eastgate area a few years ago, and I still teach there, so having two cards is essential. I use the library at least six times during the school year for Teacher Collections, which I love. Imagine getting a whole bag of books, compiled how I request, on topics that I want, with specific titles if I know them…a teacher’s dream, especially since
we do not have a librarian at the elementary school where I work due to budget cuts. This literally saves me hours and hours of work, and it is all free! “We started off attending baby and toddler story times at the old Union Township branch, when my girls were young and I was a stay-at-home mom. We went every week and met friends that we are still close to today. Now, we attend the Loveland branch about every three to four weeks or so, to browse and get new books. Going to the library
is an essential part of how we spend our free time as we all read a great deal.” Jill Jones, Loveland
“I have loved libraries since I was a kid and visit the Anderson Township branch library multiple times each month. I particularly love the ability to go online to request books in the system and have them sent out to the local branch. It’s great to be able to see the history of the books you’ve read, as well as the status of books on hold. I also enjoy the new book section in the library. The biggest change
that I’ve seen over time is the ability to view the library’s collection online and request books of interest. I also like the selfcheckout system at the library. “I suspect that future changes will include more Internet services - don’t know what direction that might take. Although I spend a lot of time on the Internet, I don’t think I’d enjoy reading an entire book that way.” Theo Tucker, Anderson Township
lung cancer survival rates up to 85%, so you can breathe easier. As Cincinnati’s only academic health system, we see more for lung cancer patients—like a highly specialized team of thoracic surgeons offering the latest minimally invasive treatment options. Our aggressive screening program catches lung cancer in its earliest stages when chances for a cure are as high as 85 percent. And we offer more clinical trials of today’s most powerful new therapies. Here, we see the promise of academic medicine every day.
Dan Luciano, Anderson Township
“Since I live in Goshen, in Clermont County, I typically go to the Goshen Branch, but occasionally go to the Milford Branch. “I order books online but I also cruise the shelves when I pick up the book(s) I ordered, just in case there’s something else that I have to read! “One of the big changes that I’ve seen is the movies and TV shows that can be rented. I also notice that the library isn’t the quiet place that it used to be(I’m not sure that’s a change for the better). The usage of computers for the public is another thing that’s happened. Many people who don’t have the ability to have computers at home have definitely benefited from that service. “I’m not sure what’s in store for libraries in the future.” Joyce Hoffman, Goshen Township
“I put holds on books and DVD (movies) via online. I have also used ‘audio’ books function; however, it is not very userfriendly, at this point. “This branch has improved the checkout process, by installing computers w/ quick/intuitive checkout, including sensing pads to read bar codes. I like! “I don’t do much re ebooks reservations. I like the feel of a real book in my hands. (I find purchased ebooks useful for highlighting or bookmarking phrases/information that I may want to re-access. This is especially true for non-fiction.) “I would like to see the library maintain its cur-

been studying the future of Milford Main Middle School since 2013. The schools’ Business Advisory Council found that, although Milford Main is a beloved community icon, the school’s usefulness as an educational building had long passed, and recommended it be sold. After a community forum, the board put the property up for public auction in May of 2014, but received no bids. That’s when Jim Cohen, president of CMC Properties Inc., proposed to construct Milford on Main, a $10 million apartment complex at the site of the former Milford Main Middle School. But Milford City Council in February 2015 refused to approve a zone change needed by Cohen, whose company built the $12 million Riverwalk Flats and Rowhouses in downtown Milford. Opponents of Milford on Main said the development was too large and dense, would hurt property values, increase traffic and strain public-safety services.

memories. It is time to start a new chapter. “We are happy about this offer from the city of Milford and look forward to this property continuing to serve our community,” Farrell said. Milford Schools has set no date for the demolition of Milford Main Middle School, but said it will take place in the winter because it is cheaper. Howland said she wishes Milford City Council could come up with a plan for the former school that would make everyone happy. “Main, even with the building gone, will always be personal for those who have a connection to it,” Howland said. “We started at a point where the city could not afford to buy it due to the purchase price, demo cost and any potential improvement cost,” Howland said. “But with the board of education’s desire to work with the city, we were able to acquire Main at a price we could afford.” Milford Schools has

SCHOOLS NOTEBOOK Goshen Middle School » Every year Goshen Middle School raises awareness for heart-healthy living by participating in a nationwide fundraising campaign to support cardiovascular wellness. This year was no different. Goshen Middle School students, faculty and staff came together to participate in the Hoops for Heart program to raise awareness and funds for the American Heart Association. According to the AHA, “Almost every family in America is touched by heart disease or stroke, and (Hoops For Heart) significantly impacts our fight against these devastating illnesses.” The program is led by physical education teachers at Goshen Middle School. Karen Wood the main sponsor at Goshen runs the program where students donate money to compete in basketball tournaments. Wood believes “it is a healthy way for our school to not only give back to a greater cause, but to also help students develop healthy lifestyles where they will remain active.” This year the school raised

Pattison Elementary School » After being voted on by a panel of judges, the fifth-grade students from Pattison Elementary School have emerged as a
top 10 contender is Scotties’ annual Trees Rock video contest. Through Feb. 7, in which all videos will be voted on by the public to determine the grand prize winner. The school with the most eligible votes will receive $10,000 to use towards a sustainable project, such as tree plantings, outdoor class-
rooms, playgrounds, athletic fields, gardens and greenhouses. All kids who entered the contest were required to create a video up to three minutes long on the importance of trees -- to themselves, their school and their community. Students were encouraged to be as creative as possible in their entries – for example, by creating a poem, a play, a speech, a song, or a dance. After rigorous scrutiny by a panel of judges, entries from around the country were narrowed down to the 10 best in third-grade through sixth-grade on the categories of most compelling relative to theme, clarity of message and creativity. The video was led by math and science teacher Missy Breuer, who has been educating students for the past 21years. In one of the contests largest participation efforts, approximately 60 students participated in creating a list of their top reasons why trees are important. From the creating oxygen to providing shade the students illustrated the positive effects of trees to the camera. They jumped in leaves, read books in
the shade, they even participated in a tree rap song! To see the full video click here. “In my science classes I stress the importance of being good stewards of our earth and its resources. We have a school wide recycling program, we do walking field trips to the nature preserve behind our school, we go to the Cincinnati Nature Center just up the road from us to do outdoor education and have begun work on adding native plants on the school grounds to help monarch butterflies with the habitat they need as part of their life cycle,” Breuer said. “We are very proactive and winning the $10,000 will help us continue stressing the importance of taking care of nature and getting our students outside to explore our natural world and becoming unplugged from their digital lives.” Winners will be chosen by voters across America who can watch the top videos and vote for their favorite through Feb. 7 on www.scottiestreesrock.com. The winners in both categories will be announced Feb 15 and winner events will be celebrated in spring.

Steak, truffles speak language of love I just loved the request Well, I not only have a from a Northern Kentucky recipe that looks like reader for a Valentine’s Day what she wants, I think recipe. “My husband keeps this one might be what talking about his mom’s Swiss his mom made. steak. All he remembers is I also wanted to share that she pounded salt and truffle recipes. What pepper into the meat with better way to say Rita flour, browned it and then “You’re special?” There baked it with tomatoes. It had Heikenfeld are two recipes: one for cheese on the top and was his adults and one for kids. RITA’S KITCHEN favorite. I would like to make Rita Nader Heikenthis as a surprise Valentine’s Day feld is an herbalist, educator, Jundinner for him. If you have a recigle Jim’s Eastgate culinary profespe that is close, I would really sional and author. Find her blog appreciate it”, she said. online at Abouteating.com.
‘I love you’ oven Swiss steak 1-1/2 pounds round steak, 3/4” thick 1/4 cup flour 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons ea. salt and pepper 1 can stewed tomatoes 1/2 cup ea. chopped celery and carrot 1/4 cup chopped onion 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce or bit more to taste 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD
Preheat oven to 325. Cut meat into 4 portions. Mix flour, salt and pepper and pound into meat. Set aside flour that is left. Brown meat in oil or shortening on all sides. Don’t cook it, just brown it. Place meat in shallow baking dish. Blend remaining flour with drippings in skillet and add rest of ingredients, except for cheese. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Pour over meat. Cover tightly and bake for 2 hours or until tender. Top with cheese and return to oven for a few minutes to melt cheese.
It’s that time of year - chocolate and Oreo truffles.
Elegant chocolate truffles 3 tablespoons light corn syrup 3/4 cup whipping cream, unwhipped 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into very small pieces 1 teaspoon vanilla
In a small saucepan combine the corn syrup and heavy cream. Bring to a simmer and add the 12 ounces of chocolate. Stir until smooth. Remove from the heat and add vanilla. Pour the mixture into a container and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour until firm. Scoop chocolate using small ice cream scoop onto pan lined with parchment paper or sprayed foil. Return to frig until very firm.
Oreo truffles 1 pound package of Oreo sandwich cookies, divided (not double stuffed) 8 oz. cream cheese, softened 1 teaspoon vanilla
Coating: 8 oz. or so high quality melted chocolate, cooled a bit but still liquid enough to dip
Tiny sprinkles/nuts, etc. (opt) Remove the truffles from the refrigerator and shape into balls by rolling between the palms of your hands. Work quickly since the heat of your hands makes the chocolate soft. Dip each truffle into the chocolate to coat and place on wire rack for excess to drip off. Tip: for a quicker and easier truffle omit the chocolate coating and drop the shaped truffles directly into cocoa powder, nuts or coconut.
Coating: 12 oz. bag semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips, melted and cooled a bit but still liquid enough to dip
Crush 9 of the cookies to fine crumbs in food processor. Set aside. Cookies also can be finely crushed in a plastic bag using a rolling pin. Crush rest of cookies. Place in bowl and add cream cheese and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Roll into 1” balls. Dip in melted chocolate and set on wire rack. Immediately sprinkle with leftover crumbs so that crumbs adhere before chocolate coating sets up. Refrigerate until firm. Store in refrigerator up to a couple of weeks.

Where has our compassion gone? As well as our common sense! After reading Viewpoint letters, I wonder: Do this many Clermont County residents really believe that Syrian refugees would not be properly vetted? Come on, this is USA! It takes one to two years to vet. And these are families: a dad, mom, and kids...and they have names! “They” are not a generic label: Syrian. And they are probably leaving as the last possible hope. People don’t leave their homeland casually...they are desperate, truly at the end of their rope, this is the last straw. As with Guatemalans escaping oppression, these Syrians don’t choose lightly to come to US, especially with our tight immigration system. Let us “do the right thing,” welcome the stranger. I would want that if I were walking in their shoes, or no shoes. Judy Alten Miami Township
President has done a great job
credible offensive, prejudiced, hate-filled and inappropriate letter by Bill Wilson of Goshen, as published as a letter to the editor in the Jan. 27 edition of the Milford-Miami Advertiser. President Obama, in our humble but well informed opinion,has done a wonderful and altruistic job in keeping America great. President Obama is a man of faith and we must both respect and recognize that as free Americans, remembering that we all have the right to freedom of religion and speech. As for bashing the Muslims and Islam, as Christians, we accept and support belief and faith in the Almighty Ineffable, regardless of the nomenclature. As for needing “new leaders,” the elections that await us in the near future will allow all registered voters an opportunity to express his/her choices for office. Again, Bill Wilson’s hatefilled, vitreous and obnoxious letter as published has strengthened my resolve to simply stay out of Goshen. Thanks for listening. Rick Rotundo Loveland

Coming to grips with wrist injury treatments Wrist injuries are common among young athletes. A fall onto an outstretched hand is a common mechanism of injury. The most commonly fractured bone around the wrist with such a mechanism is the radius bone, accounting for roughly one third to one half of all wrist fractures in children. Though less common overall, another important fracture from a fall onto an outstretched hand is the scaphoid fracture. The scaphoid bone, a small bone that sits on the thumb side of the wrist, is the most commonly fractured carpal bone. A scaphoid fracture is difficult to diagnose as it is often not seen on initial X-rays. It can be devastating if not treated properly and can ultimately impact return to play. Some of the symptoms include pain and swelling at the base of the thumb and increased pain with movement and gripping objects. If you think your child has a wrist injury, it’s always best to have an examination by a physician to determine the need for diagnostic imaging and treatment. Some of the diagnostic tests may include: » X-ray: the most common diagnostic test for a scaphoid fracture. This test utilizes electromagnetic waves of high energy to distinguish bone from soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, fat tissue). This test is commonly used as an initial test to determine if your child has sustained a scaphoid fracture. » Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): a radiationfree test that uses large magnets to produce detailed images of both soft tissues and bone. MRI is best for determining pathology of tendons and ligaments that cannot be seen with X-rays alone. An
MRI may pick up a scaphoid fracture that a plain film X-ray misses. » Computerized tomogJohn raphy (CT or Brehm CAT scan): COMMUNITY PRESS uses X-rays GUEST COLUMNIST to produce “virtual” slices of body parts. CTs are particularly important for looking at bones. They produce images that are more detailed than typical X-rays. Once the diagnosis of the scaphoid fracture is made, your doctor will determine the best possible treatment plan. The non-surgical approach involves a cast that includes the thumb. Healing time is usually four to six weeks in these instances. If the fracture involves two separate pieces of the scaphoid bone, surgery may be needed. Compression screws, wires and implants are some of the surgical techniques used to hold the bone together. Recovery time can vary. At Cincinnati Children’s, we have a team of physical therapists with pediatric training to assist your child with his or her wrist rehabilitation. Your child’s therapist will work individually with your child to design a regimen aimed at restoring function. For more information, contact the Pediatric Sports Medicine experts and make a same day appointment by calling 513-803-HURT. John Brehm has been a certified athletic trainer for the last 15 years. He is a senior athletic trainer at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and provides medical coverage for Clark Montessori High School.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Compassion
“What breaks your heart?” I was at a conference and the speaker asked this question of the audience. In my work, I am accustomed to asking people what they are interested in, excited, even passionate about. But this question stopped me cold. Let me back up. I believe that when we limit our definition of our careers to just what we are paid to do, we miss the biggest picture; the opportunity to engage in the world with our full skill set and with our complete hearts and souls. If you enjoy coaching girls basketball, that is part of who you are and even it if it is purely a volunteer endeavor, it is a part of your unique career set, or your “big picture.” Take a minute and ask yourself what your total career is. What does it include, and what would you like it to have more of? If you are an animal lover, and spend any time or resources on animal-related causes, that is part of your career – part of who you are. I knew I wanted to do something to help dogs, but I also knew that was too broad of a desire. When a goal is too big or too vague, your chances of reaching it diminish, versus developing concrete, actionable goals. What breaks my heart? When I really thought about
that question, I had an “aha” moment. Senior dogs dumped at shelters because they are senior dogs. That breaks Julie Bauke my heart to COMMUNITY PRESS pieces. GUEST COLUMNIST Now what? I know I can’t volunteer in a shelter. My emotions would not survive and I would live as a blubbering mess. I have tremendous respect for those who do. I give money, I get the word out, I work to connect people and resources. I have as many dogs as I can in my home. But still, I knew there was more I could do. When facing the empty nest, we decided that we wanted more dogs. I knew the number was not 50, but it also wasn’t three. We built a home on 15 acres and attached a senior doggie recreation room, dogs runs and a fenced-in yard. It is a place for eight senior dogs who were given up just for being old, to live out their days in comfort and love. I knew we had done the right thing when we got our first resident: Mitzi. It’s no secret that the gray muzzle does not increase your prospects for being selected by shelter visi-
tors. Maybe it was my imagination, but when I whispered in her ear that she was now safe, those tired bones took a deep breath and her whole body relaxed. Our world is not lacking in things to be heartbroken over. It can paralyze us into inaction or just the feeling that we can’t do anything that matters. There is no right or wrong answer to this question. I am constantly amazed by our community’s love for animals. Animal lovers are givers – and so are animals. My Furry Valentine, a nonprofit organization that hosts an annual event to bring people and adoptable pets together, is a way that you can get involved. To date My Furry Valentine has found homes for nearly 2,000 shelter pets in the last five years. My Furry Valentine, the region’s largest annual animal adoption event, will be held on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 13 and 14, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Sharonville Convention Center, 11355 Chester Road, Cincinnati, OH 45246.

CH@TROOM Jan. 28 question Who will be President of the United States one year from today? Why will he or she have won?
“One year from today we will be hailing the almighty and magnificent President Trump. I am not saying I agree with this choice, but yet again it will be a matter of the majority of the population voting against the greater evil rather than for the best choice. I truly long for an election where we can in good conscience vote for the right candidate with passion and belief that he or she is the best and correct choice for the highest office in our society. Trump simply has too much momentum, media presence and too many faithful followers to be stopped. He is saying the things that too many of us feel need to be said, and which the other hopefuls are too PC to state. On the campaign side he doesn't require huge donations and is therefore beholden to none of the special interests. If nothing else, this election cycle so far has been good entertainment.” M.J.F.
“I think it will be Ted Cruz. Most of America will finally wake up and realize that health care isn't a right it is a privilege, that Christianity is the national religion, diplomacy is weak and bombing is strong and good, woman should cede decisions about their bodies and reproductive health to wealthy, white evangelical males, and every citizens duty is to be armed with an open carry weapon of his or her choice. “I can relate very well to his populist story of attending common Ivy League schools, marrying a common Goldman Sach's executive and taking a job where you grind your place of employment to a standstill. “For all these democratic

Jan. 7 question What is the best way to handle the Syrian refugee situation?
“I read the readers replies about the potential arrival of Syrian refugees into the U.S. I have a Koran and have read it twice. Americans do not have a clue about what an influx of Muslims into this country will cause in the short as well as the long run! “The book depicts the hatred for all those who have not accepted Islam. Those who are not Muslims deserve death. Any Muslim that believes what the Koran preaches is a potential threat! The following is a reply to a young man who had an article in the Cincinnati Enquirer He never received it because what I perceived as being an email address was a Facebook address. I am not on Facebook. “’I read your article in this morning’s Enquirer and the first thing that entered my mind was: Have you taken the time to read the Koran? Ask yourself why isn’t the country bringing in Christian refugees? Is it because Obama favors Muslims because he was

raised as one. Multiculturalism does not work! Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, stated as much because of the influx of Muslim refugees into her country. The masses have caused assimilation problems.’ “England and France have the same problems with Muslim refugees. Many Muslims like Christians don’t read their Korans or Bibles and don’t go to a Mosque or church. Muslims that do go to a particular Mosque could be radicalized to commit jihad. Jim Hanson who is a part of counter terrorism (Center for Security Policy executive vice president) stated on O’Reilly’s hour that out of 100 mosques in the U.S. that were monitored 80 were preaching jihad. “If you read the Koran you will see that it is based on the Biblical old testament. The narrative is twisted to bring about a faith that depicts Jesus as a prophet and not the son of God. Christians and Jews deserve death because they have not accepted Islam as the one true religion. No one knows who created the words of the Koran. Muhammad was illiterate and lived in and out of a cave because he probably had some mental issues. Would God send down Gabriel to give this man the words that depict death to all that don’t believe in Islam? I don’t think so! “SURA 47 - Muhammad: When ye encounter the infidels, strike off their heads till ye have made a great slaughter among them and of the rest make fast the fetters. Infidels deserve death! That includes you and me. The word infidel is mentioned 203 times in my Koran. American’s are illiterate relative to Islam and many like yourself are jumping on the bandwagon to bring them here!”

Milford wrestlers hang tough despite challenges Nick Robbe firstname.lastname@example.org
MILFORD - Before the season, when Milford wrestling coach Pete Babinec saw his lineup taking shape, he thought the year would go well, especially because said lineup included seven seniors. What’s the famous saying about best-laid plans? They often go awry. Two of those seniors, one who’d been wrestling since kindergarten and the other since third grade, are on injured reserve the rest of the season. “We are a strong team, our numbers are just thinner now,” the coach said. “We talk about high school
wrestling careers having to come to an end at some point. It’s a shame to see it end for them in this way.” He said this season has been challenging, but by the end of it, the Eagles should have “more than a few” wrestlers with 20 or more wins. Junior Jimmy Murphy already has 29 wins as of Jan. 29. The coach said he’s been the most consistent wrestler and is the team’s healthiest. Kobey Bronaugh, a freshman, is on his way to 20 wins, if he isn’t there already. Babinec has also been impressed with Shayne McDonough, Noah Dixie, Mark Wilfong and Jarod Roll.
The team also has a base of younger grapplers who have the coach excited about what he’s getting back next year. However, the Eagles couldn’t think about that as they had to get ready to host the Milford Invitational Tournament, now in its 44th year. About 20 regional high school wrestling teams traveled to Milford: Kings, Turpin, Walnut Hills and Withrow, and Amelia, Deer Park, Indian Hill, Mariemont, McClain, Miami Valley Christian Academy, Monroe, Mt. Healthy, Northwest, Sycamore, Thomas Worthington, Western Hills, Winton Woods, and St. Xavier. “It was a big weekend for us,” Babinec said.
OWENSVILLE - Last week, Clermont Northeastern athletic director Mike Kirk announced, via email, two new head coaches for the varsity football and baseball teams. The new varsity football coach is Jeremy Fishback and the new varsity baseball coach is Don Gullett Jr. Both were introduced Jan. 28 in the high school’s library. replaces Fishback Scott Gildea and will be tasked with trying to turn around a program that’s been mired in a long streak of losing seasons. The Rockets’ best season in the past few years is a 4-6 finish back in 2010. “We have to change the culture,” Fishback said in his introductory remarks. “It’s been 20 years since this program has had a winning season. You guys can change history, turn the page, close that book and start a new one. Fishback was an assistant on the middle school team. “He’s a 1997 graduate of CNE and has been a driving force in this community with our football program both at the middle school and high school,” Kirk said of Fishback. “He’s very invested in our athletic programs and community. I think he’ll be a great fit.” Gullett Jr. takes over for Kirk in addition to working full-time at Baseball Champions Academy and being in charge of the Cincinnati Fury, a select baseball organization. He also named the members of his coaching

staff during the meeting. Roger Strunk will be the Rockets’ new pitching coach and Bill Richey will work with the catchers. “When I first interviewed him, it was very easy to tell he was all about the kids and the impact he had on them,” the AD said. “Not only does he develop their skills, he helps them to become men. I think he’ll come in here and the program won’t miss a beat.”

Moeller wrestling marches to big-match mats Scott Springer firstname.lastname@example.org
KENWOOD - From the Ironman at Walsh Jesuit to the Powerade Invitational in Pennsylvania to the Catholic Invitational Tournament, Moeller High School’s wrestling program has seen the best on the best mats within a large radius of Cincinnati. The plan for coach James Yonushonis is for the experience to pay dividends at the Greater Catholic League meet, the State Dual tournament and on the road back to the Schottenstein Center in Columbus in early March. Entering the Regional Dual competition, the Crusaders were healthy. “It’s that point where the season begins to wear on people, but that’s everybody,” Yonushonis said. “At most of the weights, we at least have a backup for guys that are banged up.” In duals, their only losses
were close contests with Father Ryan (Tennessee) in early December, then a tough loss on Senior Night to Mason in midJanuary. The Crusaders rebounded by winning the CIT a few days later at Elder over 28 other teams. Five Crusaders with state experience are back for another March run. Not surprisingly, the qualifying quintet has been reliable again. “Jack Meyer, Jacoby Ward, Joe Hensley, Brett Bryant and Jake Thompson have been pretty consistent,” Yonushonis said. “Guys like Sam Wyche are coming on and Jordan Ward, the younger brother of Jacoby.” Jordan Ward benefits from having an older brother that’s been to the state meet and another, Joey, who is a two-time state champion now wrestling at North Carolina. Yonushonis likes his skill-set and preparation as a freshman competing in the GCL. Senior Jacoby Ward is havGEOFF BLANKENSHIP/FOR THE COMMUNITY PRESS

ing a successful season at 152 after wrestling as a junior at 138. He is a three-time state placer. Wyche was a district qualifier as a freshman and has caught the eye of his coach with his diligence at 182 pounds. For those that haven’t followed the DNA trail, his grandfather has the same name and used to coach the Bengals and Buccaneers. “When you see him in his singlet, you can see every muscle in his body,” Yonushonis said of young Sam Wyche. “He’s a pretty ripped 182. He can just focus on his wrestling skill and not

worry about a whole lot of weight loss.” At 126 and 132, Yonushonis would like to see seniors Cooper Graves and Jaelen Summerours make competitive jumps. At 138, sophomore Jake Thompson increased his height over a year’s time, but has kept his weight. “He’s working so hard and doing everything right,” Yonushonis said. The upper weights are Moeller’s strong suit. Junior Brett Bryant was sixth at the state meet as a sophomore. From there the scoring has been
reliable going from Wyche to seniors Jack Meyer and Joe Hensley in the “Bash Brother” category of 220 and 285. Meyer has accumulated football offers and has made a name for himself in wrestling circles around the country. “He has the same kind of offers for wrestling,” Yonushonis said. “I know he wants to play football, but it’s pretty special for him to have a lot of opportunities.” Meyer is known for enjoying the center stage. The mantra from here is attitude plus effort equals results.
St. Xavier’s Kuechly: Cincinnati’s Captain America Adam Baum email@example.com
SPRINGFIELD TWP. Cam Newton calls him “Captain America.” But, before the nation knew Luke Kuechly, he was Cincinnati’s captain. And in many ways, the 2009 St. Xavier High School graduate remains one of this city’s proud captains with or without football pads on. When Kuechly’s feet hit the field, under the lights of Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., in Super Bowl 50, he’ll not only be representing his team and a fan base – booming thanks to a pair of postseason pick-sixes – but also his family, friends and hometown. Luke knew it as a little kid. “When they’re little this is what they dream about doing,” said Luke’s mom, Eileen Kuechly. As Carolina mangled Arizona, 49-15, in the NFC Championship game Sunday night, Eileen heard a story from one of Luke’s childhood friends, Matthew Reilly, who lives and teaches in Charlotte. said, “(Matthew) ‘When Luke and I were 10 years old we were sitting in my basement … talking about, one day we’re going to be playing in the Super Bowl,’ and that’s what he’s doing for cryin’ out loud,” said Eileen. Luke’s living his dream. St. Xavier’s dream was slightly different, and not realized until much later. The Bomber

blue community, their dream was to have a representative like Luke. His uniform’s fashioned with No. 59 and a very telling “C” – which might as well mean Cincinnati, or character, or any other number of words capable of describing Kuechly. “It’s pretty simple, Luke is a better human being than he is a football player,” said St. Xavier coach Steve Specht. “I think if you really looked at all the players in the NFL you are going to find that the majority are tremendous people who happen to be gifted football players. we “Unfortunately don’t get to read about all of those people.” Specht said we often hear more about the negative issues than the positive. “I guess that’s what I love about Luke; it doesn’t
matter if he wins a Super Bowl or is voted the defensive MVP, he will still be the same guy that wants to give his best and leave the world a better place than he found it. That’s the way he is and always will be,” Specht said. “Winning a Super Bowl ring would be great for Luke and the community, but how he carries himself is what continues to make us proud.” Kuechly is the fourth St. X grad to make a Super roster. Greg Bowl Scruggs (class of ’08) was inactive, but on the roster for the Seahawks’ last two Super Bowl trips. Pat Ross (class of ’01) played for the Seahawks when they fell to Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XLI. Currently, Rocky Boiman (class of ’98) is the only Bomber to play in and win a Super Bowl as a member of the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XL. “Anybody who’s worn a football helmet for 22 years or 22 minutes, every kid has dreamed of playing in the Super Bowl and winning … it’s the ultimate reward,” said Boiman, who added it’s easy to see why Luke’s left such an impression on this community. “He’s the perfect embodiment of what St. Xavier’s all about,” said Boiman. “To who much is given, much is expected. For him to have that drive and to be as humble as he is and a man of the community. That’s what it’s all about.”

Common homeowner foundation repair mistakes Have you, your family or friends paid for foundation or waterproofing repairs on their house or a previous residence? These repairs can be very costly and very disheartening if the contractor’s work does not solve the problem. Paying for repairs that may cost you $5,000, $10,000, $20,000 or more that have not worked makes the idea of foundation problems a major nightmare and scares homeowners. People lose sleep over the fear of what the repairs may cost. Potential buyers are kept from making an offer on a home for sale because it may have foundation issues or have had shoddy foundation repairs. With more than 100 foundation contractors in the area, thousands of
homeowners are paying contractors every year. When an Michael individMontgomery ual calls a COMMUNITY PRESS contracto GUEST COLUMNIST tor solve the problem, the contractor sends a sales person. I recently met a lady that called four companies for bids, but only got three different salesmen. The one salesman that returned under a different company name gave her a different proposal. She lost the “warm fuzzy” feeling of relying on the salesmen. Any potential client of these firms is only getting the opinion of a sales person
wanting to sell work, not the opinion of an unbiased professional engineer. provide Contractors bids to work on symptoms. If you have cracks, they will probably want to install underpinning systems to fix a supposed settlement problem. If the walls are foundation thought to be leaning or bulging inward, probably every one of them will want to install steel Ibeams against the wall, which may be an incomplete or improper repair. If a house has basement leaks, most will want to saw-cut the basement slab to install a sump pump and maybe cover up the crack. Almost every foundation or waterproofing company in this area does not understand how external forces affect a foundation. If four
different companies are called, you will most likely get four different suggestions. After completing more than 10,000 inspections over 18 years, I have homeowners tell me the horror stories. Luckily, some of these have not signed on the dotted line with a contractor. The engineer can
provide engineering designs or details that several contractors can bid the same scope of work you can then easily compare prices. Also, professional engineering designs mean you will have a record of the repair work when selling the home. Remember, work installed by a contractor
without an engineering design is merely work that has been installed and may only cover up a symptom and cost you more in the long run. Michael Montgomeryof Buyers Protection Group is a licensed engineer in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Call 1-800-2853001 www.engineeringandfoundations.com

Another friend has gone to Heaven rene church are so fortunate to have Rev. Wade and his lovely wife to George minister to Rooks their church. On OLE FISHERMAN Wednesday evening his wife is directing the community choir. Elvira Adams lived in Williamsburg. This lady was like Ruth Ann she always had a big smile for everybody. On the celebration of life was â€œIâ€™m free, Donâ€™t grieve me for now I am free, Iâ€™m following the path God laid for me. I took his hand when I heard him call I turned my back and left it all.â€? I was talking to Mike at the Boars Head Bait Shop in Afton this morning. He said he and grandma were down to Golden Corral on Tuesday and a lady came over to their table. She really was glad to see Mikeâ€™s grandma. She has read so much about her and finally got to meet her.
This lady spent several minutes talking to them especially the queen Mikeâ€™s grandma. She is a very lovely lady. Mike is so fortunate to have her. Mike gave me the schedule for the crappie tournaments they will be have this year. They are April 17, May 15, June 5, June 19, Aug. 7, and the championship for the year is Sept. 17 and 18. On Aug. 6 the Boars Head Bait Shop always holds a special event for a special project to raise money. This year the event is for Parkinsonâ€™s disease. The time is noon to 7 p.m. If you go you can speak to grandma. I had to go get a new belt for the sweeper this morning - the old one broke. So while I was down toward Amelia, I stopped and got some more seed starters at Wal-Mart. I needed to have a new spare tire. It seems the one I had for the truck - it just disappeared, so Bethel Marine got me a wheel and put a tire on the rim and then helped put the tire back on the truck. I had an invitation to

Howdy folks, We lost another angel to Heaven last week. I went to the funeral on Monday morning. This was at the Nazarene Church in Bethel. Elvira Adams had a great family - several grandchildren and several great-grandchildren. Folks remember - â€œYou preach your funeral the way you live your life.â€? There was a big crowd and the burial was at the Williamsburg cemetery. Then there was a fine meal for the family and friends. This is a time to remember about how she lived. During the service her son, Terry, gave a eulogy about his early life at home. There were two boys and one girl. Terry told how his mother and dad I guess were kind of strict when they were growing up. Terry picked up a paddle his mother used on them. If she used the paddle your name was on it. He said they wondered why his dadâ€™s name was on the paddle - wow. The three ministers who gave a talk were very impressed with this lady. The Nazarene minister, Rev. Scott, gave the message and it was a fine message. After the message when folks were going through visiting the folks - when I shook his hand - he said this message was for me too since it was just a little over a year since Ruth Ann had died. The folks at the Naza-
