BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Miami Township’s fitness program audit is continuing By Keith BieryGolick kbierygolick@communitypress.com

MIAMI TWP. —

Despite previous statements , Miami Township officials are unable to prove their employees didn’t profit off a fitness program that reimburses them for monthly gym membership fees. In fact, emails between Administrator Larry Fronk, Police Chief Sue Madsen and Fire Chief Steve Kelly Jan. 9 show even the mundane detail of what gym an employee attends was overlooked on at least two occasions. The township is now conducting an internal audit of the program after an investigation by The Community Press revealed that at least two employees were reimbursed more than what they actually paid for their gym membership. Even before the audit was announced questions about the fitness program were being asked by township officials. “I need to know with what gym Sgt. (Ted) Swain has a membership. It is not with the paperwork in the fiscal office,” Fronk wrote in an email to Madsen Jan. 9. Fronk sent an identical email on the same day to Kelly asking about employee Doug Tieman. Both employees submitted attendance reports showing dates they worked out, but not which facility they attended. Furthermore, township officials didn’t have gym contracts for 23 out of 25 employees reimbursed for working out in 2012

A simple program designed to encourage a healthy lifestyle has devolved into controversy. Miami Township is conducting an audit of its physical fitness program, which reimburses employees for working out, after it was discovered at least two employees profited off it.

and 2013, leaving them unable to prove whether or not employees were reimbursed more than the actual cost of their gym memberships. Both employees with gym contracts on file were reimbursed more than the cost of their gym memberships, according to documents obtained by The Community Press through a public records request. Fronk previously said department heads had contracts for the other 23 employees. It turns out they didn’t.

When questioned about why a recent public records request didn’t produce additional contracts, Fronk answered with a question of his own. “Did you read the policy?” Fronk said. “As my department heads informed me they (the contracts) were not required.” So department heads essentially take employees for their word when it comes to how much they pay for gym memberships. Instead of contracts, the reimbursement is “based on the

attendance report from the fitness facility,” according to the township’s official policy. Patty Holbert, an administrative assistant in the fire department, admitted she’s never seen the policy in a Dec. 30 email to Cathy DeDiemar, a police department employee. “I have never been able to find our written policy about fitness reimbursement,” Holbert said in the email. “(Former Fire) Chief (Jim) Whitworth instructed me when someone new was requesting to participate to always get a copy

of the membership agreement showing how much the employee paid a month,” she said in the email. “If it is less than $30 a month, then I only reimburse what they pay. I am not sure if that is what the policy says to do, it is just what we do.” Concerns about the program were first brought up at a December budget meeting. After discussing the possibility of employees abusing the program, Trustee Mary Makley Wolff took a hard stance on the reimbursements. “I’m not going to support programs where we are generous enough to give people things and have them take advantage of them,” Wolf said at the meeting. “It’s small, but we have to be consistent. You can’t be making money off of working out on taxpayer money. That’s unacceptable.” Trustees have the power to terminate the program because it is not tied to union contracts. Trustee Ken Tracy spoke of fixing the program — rather than terminating it — when discussing potential audit findings. Fronk previously said changes to the reimbursement program would be presented to trustees at their February work session. The work session is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Monday, Feb. 10, at the Miami Township Civic Center, 6101 Meijer Drive. When asked for an update on the audit at a recent trustee meeting, Fronk said, “We’re working on it.”

Milford superintendent gets new contract By Keith BieryGolick

kbierygolick@communitypress.com

MILFORD — After pondering retirement, Milford Exempted Village School District Superintendent Bob Farrell will be back for at least two more school years. The district’s Board of Education unanimously extended Farrell’s contract until July 31, 2016, at a recent meeting. “I was definitely considering retiring,” Farrell said. “(But) working with this (school) board has made a tremendous difference. The board doesn’t always agree,

but they understand the mission. I love working in a district like that.” Farrell retired from Fairfield schools and Farrell was rehired by Milford in 2007. His contract was set to expire at the end of the current school year, and he came so close to retiring that newly elected school board member Gary Knepp said one of the primary reasons he ran for election was to be a part of finding Farrell’s replacement.

After Farrell’s two-year contract was approved, Knepp couldn’t help but joke about extending the contract’s length. “I’m really pleased to have Dr. Farrell for another five years,” Knepp said. “But seriously, sometimes you don’t recognize what you have at times.” In this case, the district has a premier superintendent, he said. “People in the field of education talk about Dr. Farrell not as a good manager, but an educational leader. That’s the highest compliment,” Knepp

said. Board of Education President Andrea Brady echoed those compliments. “Dr. Farrell has really turned around community involvement and trust (with the community),” Brady said. Board member George Lucas said Farrell came into the district at a time when the relationship between the district and its residents wasn’t great. “Out of all the superintendents who’ve served here, Bob is the most approachable. I think that’s what the community was after,” Lucas said. Farrell took a moment after

his extension was approved and complimented everyone who works for the district. “I don’t know that people know this, but when you go to district to district they’re not even close to where we are,” he said. “We are way ahead of them in terms of getting ready for Common Core. Just like they want to imitate our Blizzard Bags, they really want to imitate our curriculum.” The school board gave Farrell, and his $110,000 base salary, a 4 percent raise in September.

Scot Conover of Sign Graphics & Design in Milford has made informational kiosks about the city's downtown to post outdoors.JEANNE HOUCK/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

The Milford Planning Department and Scot Conover of Sign Graphics & Design at 420 Main St. collaborated on the informational kiosks, which cost taxpayers about $2,100. “Our goal is to let travelers on the bike trail and visitors in the park know about restaurants and retail stores that are available in downtown Milford,” said Pam Holbrook, assistant city man-

ager. “People new to the area may not realize all of the interesting places to eat and shop downtown, just a short distance from the bike trail, or that Milford is a junction to seven national long-distance trails.” Conover was happy to be part of the initiative. He made kiosks that can be updated, which Milford plans to do twice a year as needed if stores

change locations. “I think it’s a great idea,” Conover said. “It’s neat to include the names of the downtown businesses.” For more about your community, visit www.Cincinnati.com/Milford. Get regular Milford updates by signing up for our email newsletter. Visit Cincinnati.com/Milford,

Troopers ID two men killed in crash Two drivers died Jan. 24 when they crashed into a trailer that came dislodged from a tractortrailer on U.S. 50 in Stonelick Township. Michael Brown, 43, of Williamsburg, and Shawn

Wilson, 39, of Lynchburg, both died in the crash, which involved five vehicles. It occurred at approximately 6:40 a.m. on the highway near milemarker 8, west of Owensville.

Michael Simpson, 60, of Cleves was going up the hill in a semitrailer when his truck’s trailer came loose. The box trailer then went left of center into the westbound lane. Brown, who was driv-

ing a 2004 black Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, sideswiped the trailer, continued westbound and struck the guardrail on the right side of the road. The pickup truck then traveled off the left side of the highway, striking another vehicle before coming to rest in a ditch.

Wilson, driving a 2004 maroon Dodge Ram 150 pickup truck, was also traveling westbound when he crashed and became lodged into the front of the trailer. Both Brown and Wilson were pronounced dead at the scene by the Clermont County Coro-

ner. Neither driver was wearing a seat belt, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol. Troopers say Todd Frost Sr., 43, of Fairfield, who was driving the vehicle that was struck by Brown’s Silverado, was not injured.

God makes trees; Milford decorates them

Milford plans to kick off a memorial tree program in some city parks - including Carriage Way Park at 651 Riverside Drive, seen here - by this spring.JEANNE HOUCK/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

MILFORD — American poet Joyce Kilmer wrote in1913 that, “Only God can make a tree.” But that doesn’t mean people can’t adopt them for commemorative purposes. This spring, the Milford Parks & Recreation Commission hopes to kick off a memorial tree program that will allow participants to choose a new tree planting or an existing tree in a city park and outfit it with a memorial marker. Participating parks

will be Carriage Way Park at 651 Riverside Drive, Garfield Park at 850 Garfield Ave. and SEM Villa Park at 201 Mound St. “Milford’s Parks & Ellerhorst Recreation Commission understands the value of trees in our community and is finalizing details on a memorial tree program,” said Susan Ellerhorst, assistant to

the city manager. “Memorial trees will serve the dual purpose of satisfying our community’s desire to honor, remember or celebrate loved ones and enhance Milford’s parks and urban forest. “The gift of a tree keeps growing and giving to the community for a lifetime,” Ellerhorst said. Ellerhorst said the cost of the memorial trees will depend on the current price of the selected trees and their upkeep, plus the cost of the markers and their installation. “In addition, a small portion of the cost will be set aside for future park development and tree replacements,” Ellerhorst said. Charles Evans is chairman of Milford’s Parks & Recreation Commission. “One of the reasons we started the memorial tree program is that people were always looking for ways around the city to memorialize special people,” Evans said. “We decided that the memorial tree program could fulfill that niche and benefit the Milford parks as well.”

Milford senior contemplates close of swimming career By Mark D. Motz

mmotz@communitypress.com

MILFORD — The close of a competitive sports career arrives for everyone eventually. For Milford High School senior swimmer Alex Hahn, it’s close. Just a few more weeks of early mornings, of grueling practice and the rush of racing. “It’s like the end of a longlived lifestyle,” he said. “I’ve been doing this since I was 4, so 14 years. I’m not going on with it competitively in college. It’s good because I’m tired of all the training, but bad because I’ll probably get really fat.” Not likely. Hahn said he will still swim for exercise and – because he wants to study pre-med at either Case Western or Loyola of Chicago – he may not have time to eat thanks to his studies. What does Hahn like best about his sport? “The competition,” he said. “There’s this post-race euphoria, a high you get like nothing else. And all the anticipation building up to a meet. It’s exciting. You see your results, how you reflect the work you put into it. “When it comes out that your race was successful or your relay dropped its time, there’s no other feeling like that in the world.” Milford head coach Sarah Kleinfelter said Hahn has been invaluable in spreading that gospel to the team. “He really helps set the standard and set the bar for expectations,” she said. “Alex stepped up. Even two years ago when we graduated so many state qualifiers, he was like ‘They had their shot, now it’s my turn.’” Hahn swims a multitude of events for the Eagles and has advanced to the district meet on relay teams, his favorite swimming memories. “Last year I was with two seniors, two of my best friends,” he said. “It’s taken on a different life this year and now it’s me who’s the senior.” Hahn has a sophomore brother at Milford, Elliot, “but he’s a band geek,” Alex said with a chuckle. “He plays trombone.

He swam a little bit when he was younger, but never really got into it.” Which is one of the reasons Alex wants to get back to the district meet with at least one of his relay teams. “I’d like to have some of the underclassmen with me,” he said. “I think that’s their best chance to get that feeling of accomplishment, to understand how big that meet is, and to carry it on when I’m gone. “A lot of (underclassmen) tell me I’m calm, cool and collected. I want them to remember me as somebody who showed up, got the work done, not too much

horse play and was just focused. Focused. I think that’s the word I want them to remember me by.” Kleinfelter said that was a good description. “The versatility is there,” she said. “That’s been good and bad – he has his favorite events like everyone – but he’s always been ‘What can I do that’s going to help the team.’ Last year that meant giving up the breaststroke because he could have helped us more in the butterfly “He wound up as first alternate to the district in the fly, where he wouldn’t have come close to that in the breaststroke.”

In the time it takes to remember how to spell the word – there’s no U in indefatigable like there is in fatigue – and clack out its six syllables, Goshen High School junior guard Courtney Turner runs up and down the basketball court roughly 23 times. Without getting winded. Less a commentary on slow typing; more a (slightly hyperbolized) hosanna to Turner’s boundless speed and energy. After all, what is 94 feet to a girl used to running 3.1miles at a clip as a regional cross country qualifier? But her first love was basketball, which she’s played since second grade. Generously listed at on the roster at 5-foot-3, Turner is one of the smallest players on the floor. Yet she leads a balanced Warrior squad in scoring at 8.8 points per game while dishing

out a team-best 2.2 assists. She leads the team in field goal, free throw and three-point percentage. Turner can explain. “My teammates do a good job of getting me the ball in open spots,” she said. “I don’t do much attacking. It’s more outside shots. We have more plays for shooters and I just take a lot of open shots.” Goshen head coach Dave Mason likes Turner’s takewhat-the-defense-gives approach. “She’s a very, very solid player,” he said. “She’s very smart and heady. She always is in a good position to help the team. We don’t have much size, but I think I have three of the best guards in the city.” (Juniors Kayla Miller and Turner’s cross country teammate Brittany Clark are the other two.) Turner said she enjoys trading the solitude of running for See TURNER, Page A7

the collaboration of a team. “It’s different, but it’s always fun to be with a team,” she said. “It’s fun to gel and come together and accomplish something as a group.” Which Goshen has shown glimpses of doing this season. With a 9-9 record following a 55-48 road loss at Bethel Jan. 30, Mason said even in defeat he sees flashes of what could add up to a solid tournament run later this month. “A game like (Bethel, where Goshen trailed 12-0 early), you dig a big hole early and it’s too much to climb out of it,” he said. “We were down more than 20 at a couple points and got it close at the end. It’s a little frustrating sometimes to see how good they can be. “You get on a run, but we haven’t figured out how to sustain it. It’s a scary team when we’re hitting on all cylinders. We’ve shown people we’re capable. We’re a scary draw in the tournament.” Turner agreed and said it boils down to team. “As a team we have to know how to pick each other up,” she said. “We have to be able to admit our mistakes and fix them together. Like if we have a turnover, we have to know we can make it up on defense.”

Wynn tries to balance youth, experience on St. X wrestling mat By Tom Skeen tskeen@communitypress.com

When Tom Wynn received the keys to the St. Xavier High School wrestling team, he knew he had to fine-tune some things. With holes at 106 pounds and the heavyweight position, it’s been an uphill battle all season starting most matches from behind. Despite those obstacles the Bombers fought their way to the semifinals of the Division I, Region 8 OHSAA Dual Team Tournament upsetting top-ranked La Salle on the way and getting a little redemption for a loss earlier in the season to the Lancers. “I knew we had a good team this year,” Wynn said, who replaced Tim McDonald as coach before the season. “… We’ve been right in the mix the whole time; we’re just try-

ing to put things together.” The Bombers, which include Clayton Peterson of Milford, lost to secondseeded Harrison Jan. 29 in the Dual Team Tournament semifinals with a

lineup that featured six freshmen or sophomores. Wynn knew youth was aplenty when he took over, but he figures there’s no better way to learn than to take the mat against top competition.

‘this is how we work, this is how hard we go,’” Wynn said. “They’ve stepped up in the (practice) room and at the tournaments and done a really great job of being leaders.” Now it’s back to the mat in preparation for the GCL meet Feb. 1 and the sectional tournament, which gets underway Feb. 21. The Bombers are in the Lebanon sectional with the likes of Moeller, Mason and Fairfield. With anywhere from four to six wrestlers who could challenge for a trip to the state meet in their respective weight class, Wynn wants his guys focused and prepared for the home stretch. “We go back to basics in getting good shots, good setups (and) good finishes. If we can focus on those areas I think we’ll be alright at the end of the year.”

“We just push them, set an example, lead and we just want them to step up and be leaders themselves,” the coach said. “They are a great group of kids.” It always helps when you have a group of veterans from whom the youngsters can learn. A senior class that includes Ryan Gordon of West Chester, Dakota Stephens of Fairfield, Grant Pieples of Mt. Washington, Joe Heyob of Colerain Township and Matt Kuhlman of Colerain Township are a combined 155-34 this season, according to the Greater Catholic League South website. Heyob is a two-time state qualifier, is unbeaten this season (36-0) and will challenge for a state title at either 170 or 182 pounds. “All those guys have taken the young guys under their wings and said

Community improvements for an ‘integrated’ future Four critical civil improvements are direly needed to facilitate growth. People know walking and running preceded driving as the fundamental transportation on roads, and that our laws are pedestrian in nature. The special place that pedestrian transportation has in our lives is tragically viewed with holistic importance after someone loses their ability to walk or run. A pedestrian bridge over Interstate 275, wide sidewalks on both sides of state Route 131, mulched trails, and a Milford Centre will bring great returns on public health and civic quality. Progress is anchored by a will for accomplishment and “getting the plans completed.” The first critical step is constructing a separate bridge for

walkers, runners, and bicycles over Interstate 275 so that pedestrians do not brave oncoming traffic on the existing Christopher structure. Myers The bridge COMMUNITY PRESS would be conGUEST COLUMNIST nected to the utility road near the current Enterprise Center on Smysor Road, near state Route 28. Construction should begin spring 2014.

ABOUT LETTERS AND COLUMNS

The trustees have again chosen to throw away tens of thousands of dollars on legal fees. They were well aware their decision to refuse a zone change was clearly illegal. This is not the way to promote business using the motto bring your business to the township and pay taxes as long as we like you. The trustee's cite the 2025 vision plan as their reason to deny the zone change. The 2025 vision plan written in 2005 is nothing more than a pipe dream unless the money fairy drops by. Adding insult to injury they filed a lawsuit against Irvine for incorrect storage that should not have been a problem if they had done the correct and legal solution and approved the zone change. What you want and what is legal often are two different things. It's not your money you’re wasting its mine.

Milford Centre can include a central, park turf space; light rail station; office rises tailored to agencies’ specifics; many high-end made-in-U.S.A. retailers; veranda restaurants; outdoor marketspace; residences and houses; and a large, spacious, ornate neo-Georgian rise for our beloved (and overcrowed) public library, all connected! An encompassing Hellenicinspired circular colonnade canopy and dome towering over the turf with a patio lookout and view of Cincinnati would emit an aura unparalleled in the Midwest and define the early century’s civil architecture.

Construction can begin February 2017 once plans are final. A centre will serve as rich jewel of the area for shoppers, residents, and community gatherings long into our integrated and prosperous future: a time capsule of the partnership between baby boomers and the millennials whose lives touched during a wonderful period of exquisite area revival.

What do I mean by “right thing”? Tackle the tough issues in a meaningful way, using compromise and good sense to the greater good. Allow me to illustrate with two controversial issues: immigration and gun control. Currently there is a compromise deal on the table that theoretically most people agree on. Part of it has already been voted upon, but some obstructionists baulk at any path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already here. They say, among other things, that it would be unfair for those who are waiting on line, legally. As a legal immigrant myself, let me say that the system is so broken that the argument does not hold water. This summer (June 2013) it was revealed that the Federal Authorities were just getting around to processing Green Card requests from adult children of U.S. citizens, filed in August of 1993!

Healey Illegal immiCOMMUNITY PRESS grants could be GUEST COLUMNIST accused of jumping the line. The current immigration system, coupled with our own demand for low-cost labor, has made circumventing the law an attractive option for immigrants, employers and the general economy of the nation alike. In other words, the current immigration system works against our national interest. Besides which, the independent Congressional Budget Office estimates that legalizing those immigrants already here would cut the deficit by $197 billion in the first 10 years and $700 billion in the second 10 years. And that is just two of the positive findings. Mr. Boehner, do the right thing! As for gun control, let me say this: One guy and a failed attempt with a shoe bomb, and we are all taking off our shoes at the air-

port. Columbine and nearly 40 school shootings since then and …nothing. Sensible people realize that the Constitution will not be changed to prohibit guns. However, only fools believe that the current system is satisfactory. For what it is worth, here is my perspective: You need a license to drive a car. You must pass a test to drive a boat. Both were designed for travel or leisure, but in unskilled hands, can be dangerous, even lethal. Then you have guns. They are designed to be lethal. You don’t have to be trained or certified to buy or use one. Does that make any sense? What sensible person would deny that obtaining a license that shows you are proficient, able and competent to use lethal weapons, is a good idea? Instead of passing sensible legislation like this, Gov. Kasich thinks it is a better idea to let people carry guns in bars. Mr. Boehner, do the right thing! For our representatives, it’s time to stop listening to lobbyists and start listening to that little voice in your heart – it’s called your conscience.

children without a bed to sleep in.” Beds for Kids will work closely with Families Forward, a locally based resource center for schools, students and their families. “I think (this) will be nicely aligned with our services in meeting the full needs of our students,” said Deborah Allsop, executive director/CEO of Fam-

ilies Forward. “(This) will support their academic, social and emotional growth.” Families Forward will serve as a referral agency for Beds for Kids. Adams, a parent of three, said the organization will initially need to raise about $150,000. This will cover operational costs as well as provide beds for 500 children.

Adams said the children will be given a bed frame, mattress, sheets, a comforter and pillow. The organization hopes to obtain funding from foundation grants and corporate sponsors as well as private donations.

championship. The Crusaders beat the Mentor Cardinals 55-52, winning their second consecutive state championship. “Coach (John) Rodenberg’s guidance on and off the field is a huge contributor to the

success of these young men,” Jones said. “This was a big year for the Crusaders, not only winning the title, but breaking state records. I’m excited to see more from this great team next season.” “The Crusaders unwa-

vering commitment and energy, and the dedication of coach Rodenberg let to a record-setting year and a well deserved state title,” Seitz said “As a Moeller alumnus, I’m extremely proud of our young athletes for winning yet an-

other state championship,” Uecker said. Moeller set records for most points scored by a team, most combined points scored and most combined total yards in a Division I state final game.

CSC starts programs for kids Cancer Support Community recently received a $10,000 grant from the Charles H. Dater Foundation, which will help fund special support programs throughout 2014 for children dealing with cancer themselves or in their family. Called Kid Support, the 10week program is a free peer support group for children (ages 4-12) who have a family member or friend with cancer or have cancer themselves. The program features developmentally appropriate content and activities such as artistic expression, poems, stories, cartoons and games to help children feel comfortable asking questions, expressing difficult feelings and sharing common experiences. “The Charles H. Dater Foundation is committed to the children of the Greater Cincin-

nati area,” said Bruce A. Krone, Director of the Foundation. “We focus on providing financial support to programs that serve to improve the lives of children through diversified experiences and activities. This is in keeping with the philanthropic vision and goals of Charles H. Dater, in whose memory we serve.” More than 2,200 grants have been awarded since 1985, totaling over $35 million. According to CSC Program Director Kelly Schoen a cancer diagnosis impacts the entire family and can be especially confusing and frightening to the youngest family members. “We’re very grateful to the Dater Foundation for this funding,” said Schoen. “Children often have many worries, fears, and misconceptions

about cancer and if the concerns are not addressed it can put them at risk for emotional distress, behavioral problems, or trouble in school.” Kid Support begins with a parent orientation session at 5:30 p.m., on Thursday, March 6. Children are welcome to attend and will participate in a structured activity during the parent session. The children sessions then begin 5:30-7:30 p.m. the following Thursday, March 13, and run for 10 weeks. All activities take place at Cancer Support Community, 4918 Cooper Road, Blue Ash, are facilitated by trained professionals and are offered free of charge to participants thanks to this grant from the Dater Foundation. For reservations or more information, call 791-4060.

FEBRUARY 5, 2014 • CJN-MMA • B3

Chocolate treats perfect for Valentine’s Day I always get sentimental around Valentine’s Day. I remember being a kid in second grade, hoping I’d get some Valentine cards from my classmates, particularly Bobby Simpson. It was always fun watching my boys when Rita they were Heikenfeld that age RITA’S KITCHEN choose special cards for their Valentines. Times change, but the message is the same. Anybody can be your Valentine, so remember those folks who have lent a helping hand, or who may just need cheering up. Send them a funny kid’s card with a note and, if you can, share one of these recipes with them. Chocolate rules!

Cappuccino mocha pudding cake aka Upside down hot fudge pudding cake If you’re making this for kids or someone who doesn’t like coffee flavor, leave out espresso. The fun thing about this is you learn a bit of food chemistry: the hot fudge sauce is poured over the top of the cake batter, and as the cake bakes, the sauce turns to pudding and sinks to the bottom while the cake batter rises to the top! Cake: 2 cups flour ⁄3 cup plus 1 tablespoon cocoa powder 2 teaspoons instant espresso coffee powder 1 tablespoon baking powder 11⁄2 cups sugar 1 cup chopped toasted walnuts or other nuts (optional) 1 cup milk 4 tablespoons melted butter 2 teaspoons vanilla 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9-inch by 13-inch pan. Whisk flour, cocoa, espresso powder, baking powder and sugar together. In separate bowl, whisk milk, butter and vanilla. Add this to dry ingredients and blend. Pour into pan. Pudding: 1 cup sugar 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed 1 ⁄2 cup plus 2 tablespoons cocoa powder

13⁄4 cup very hot water

Mix sugars and cocoa. Pour water over and whisk. Pour ever so gently and evenly over batter. Pudding will look quite thin but gets real thick as it bakes. Bake 30-35 minutes or until center is set and just firm to touch. Don’t over bake or you won’t get much pudding!

Diabetic chocolate lover’s cheesecake

I remember this recipe from friend and former colleague, Joanna Lund, founder of Healthy Exchanges. 1 pound fat-free cream cheese, room temperature 4 serving package sugar-free instant chocolate fudge pudding mix 2 ⁄3 cup nonfat dry milk powder 1 cup water 1 ⁄4 cup Cool Whip Lite 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 chocolate-flavored piecrust, 6 oz.

Garnish: 2 (21⁄2-inch squares) chocolate graham crackers, crushed 2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips

Stir cream cheese with a spoon and add pudding mix, milk powder and water. Mix well using a whisk. Blend in Cool Whip and vanilla. Spread into crust. Sprinkle cracker crumbs and chips over top. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Serves 8. Each serving: Calories 215, Fat 7 gm, Protein 26 gm, Carbs 644 mg

Easy chocolate fondue

This can be made ahead and reheated. Serve with chunks of fruit, cake, etc. I like to ladle some out for the kids before adding liqueur.

4 cups chocolate chips, your choice (approximately 24 oz.) 1 cup whipping cream, unwhipped 1 ⁄2 cup milk 1 teaspoon vanilla or 1⁄2 teaspoon almond extract Liqueur: Start with 2 tablespoons and go from there (optional) - I used orange liqueur

Put chips, cream and milk in pan. Whisk over low heat until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in vanilla and liqueur.

Rita’s chocolate pudding cake can be made with or without espresso powder.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Tips from readers’ kitchens Tortellini soup update. Sandy, a loyal reader, made the tortellini soup with spinach and used a 19 oz. bag of tortellini and found it was way too much for the quart of broth. She decided to add more broth, which worked. I would say start with 2 cups tortellini and go from there.

RELIGION Jesuit Spiritual Center

The Jesuit Spiritual Center at Milford is sponsoring overnight Ignatian retreats based on the “Spiritual Exercises” of St. Ignatius, including “St. Elizabeth – God’s story is our story; Our story is God’s story,” Feb 14-16 with director Keith Muccino, SJ; “Pope Paul VI – An Encounter with Jesus – a man for others,” Feb 2123 with director Tim Howe, SJ. The retreats are silent and held on the Center’s quiet 37-acre campus. For information on all our retreats, or to register, call 248-3500, ext.10, or visit the center’s website. Is it possible to find God in your everyday life? Ignatian spirituality teaches that it most definitely is. It insists that God is present and active in our lives. It is a pathway to deeper prayer, good decisions guided by a keen discernment, and an active life of service to others. Come and discover for yourself how the practices and insights of Ignatian Spirituality — the Spiritual Exercises, discernment, Ignatian prayer, and the Daily Examen — can help you find God right where you are. » Tuesday, March 11 — Where Can I Find God? -Fr. John Ferone, SJ » Tuesday, March 18 — How Can I Pray? Try the Daily Examen, TBA » Tuesday, March 25 — Finding God in All Things – Fr.

Teen Board creates blankets at workshop Ohio State University Extension Clermont County’s Family and Consumer Sciences Teen Board crafted blankets for Children’s Hospital. Family and Consumer Sciences Teen Board members learned how to make no-sew, knotted fleece blankets for their autumn project. They donated eight baby blankets to Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati during the holiday season. To make a blanket of your own, Family and Consumer Sciences Teen Board provides these instructions: 1. Purchase 2 yards of fleece (1 yard of a solid color, 1 yard of a print) 2. Lay pieces evenly on top of each other 3. Cut 1-inch strips around the edges using scissors 4. Knot strips together side by side 5. Repeat until your blanket is complete
