Were Miami Twp. cops paid to exercise while on duty?

By Keith BieryGolick

MIAMI TWP. — Several Miami Township police officers may have been compensated for exercising while on duty, which is against the township’s policy. Miami Township compensates some employees for their monthly gym memberships if they exercise at least eight times per month. The policy stated “time the employee spends (exercising) is considered off-duty and he/ she will not be compensated.” Documents obtained by the Community Press through public records requests reveal at least four police officers checked in at a fitness facility while being paid for court overtime, training, regular overtime or normal shifts. But Miami Township Police Chief Sue Madsen denied employees were compensated for exercising while on duty. Madsen explained that officers are contractually granted three hours of court overtime for every court appearance they make — whether that appearance lasts 30 minutes or two hours. The police chief said that explained two separate occasions where employees were exercising while being paid for court overtime. In addition, if employees skip lunch during training they can be released early, said Mi-



ami Township Law Director Joe Braun. That was the case for workouts of two employees on separate dates in 2012, Madsen said. Trustee Ken Tracy said he wasn’t concerned about the training incidents — both showing discrepancies of less than 30 minutes — and accepted the early-release explanation. What he couldn’t understand were records that showed one police officer who checked into a workout facility in Mason six times during regular shifts, according to expense reports filed with the township. “If that’s true — and I don’t mean to call anyone out — that’s not a reflection of the township. The story is about that person,” Tracy said. That particular employee also checked into the Mason fitness facility during two regular overtime shifts in 2013, according to a history report generated by the facility attached to his expense report. Madsen said the fitness facility’s check-in system may be to blame. Madsen called the Mason facility and was told by an em-

ployee patrons can enter a pass code to get into the facility if they do not have their membership card, she said. The police chief implied someone other than the police officer exercised at the facility during the eight dates in question. The township has a photo of the officer at an event which proves he was working during one of those overtime periods, Madsen said.

She continued: “If that’s the case in one situation wouldn’t a reasonable person believe that could be the case in other situations?” But if someone else was using the officer’s pass code to exercise that calls into question the $330 of gym-membership fees the officer was reimbursed in 2013. That same police officer was one of five employees recently required to pay the township

taxpayers back for a gym-membership reimbursement they should not have received, Madsen confirmed.

Will township trustees tighten policy again?

In total, the township reimbursed employees $22,567 for gym memberships since 2009. Trustees updated the township’s policy in February to reSee POLICY, Page A2

Who contaminated Milford aquifer in 1986? By Jeanne Houck

MILFORD — Environmental Protection Agency investigators will return to the city this summer in hopes of unraveling a 30-year-old mystery: Where are pollutants contaminating an aquifer in Milford coming from and who is responsible? The contaminated aquifer supplies the city’s four drinking water wells next to the Little Miami River. Representatives of the federal and state EPAs and of the city emphasize that Milford has installed equipment that makes the water safe for use.

Ohio EPA agents first detected industrial solvents in a groundwater plume beneath a business and residential area near the intersection of Baker Drive and Lila Avenue in 1986. But the U.S. EPA, called in by the Ohio EPA, continues to study the source or sources of the perchloroethylene, trichloroethane and other contaminants produced when those solvents are broken down by the environment – all of which are often referred to as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) - in the aquifer. “To date, the highest concentrations in the aquifer have been found (in the 500 block of) Baker Drive, which was a dry-

cleaning facility during the 1950s,” said Dina Pierce, media coordinator for the Ohio EPA in Columbus. “For (the 6,000-plus) Milford water customers, the Milford water department uses an air stripper to remove the VOCs from the water until they are below allowable safe drinkingwater contamination levels. “After treatment, contaminants have been removed below the maximum allowable contaminant levels and the water is safe to drink,” Pierce said. Milford City Manager Jeff Wright said, “The EPA planning and cleanup process is very

the city is keeping an “ear” out for any potential noise problems. Milford City Council recently voted to approve a zone change sought by the Glenny Glass Co. of 209 Castleberry Court. Glenny Glass wants Milford to change a neighboring 2.4-acre parcel of land on the north side of Brooklyn Avenue from a zone for apartments to a zone for business so it can build a 30,000-square-foot addition to an existing 58,000-square-foot building, said Pam Holbrook, assistant Milford city manager. The land is undeveloped; no apartments would be demolished for Glenny Glass, an independent wholesale distributor of glass. Milford City Manager Jeff Wright said the law director will prepare a

zonechange ordinance for City Council to adopt at its next meeting, to be held at 7 p.m. ThursHowland day, May 8, at City Hall at 745 Center St. “After the passing of that ordinance the zoning will officially be changed,” Wright said. “Since (the recent zoning vote) was only on rather or not to change the zoning from multifamily residential to special business district and not on a specific layout yet no conditions were attached. “However, the applicant will have to request site plan approval later this year from the city's Planning Commission, and at that time staff will

be recommending specific conditions of approval to abate noise issues so that the neighbors are not bothered in early mornings by loud sounds,” Wright said. Milford Mayor Laurie Howland said she has received calls from people who live near Glenny Glass and have had issues with the noise it generates. “The city is very mindful of this and will make this a priority when Glenny Glass presents any plans for approval,” Howland said. “One of the recommendations staff has already voiced is bringing all the dumpsters and compressors inside.” Glenny Glass representatives were unable to be reached for comment.


“They are still investigating and in fact plan on performing additional groundwater testing this summer, and then will propose cleanup options and then pick a cleanup plan and have the cleanup work performed,” Wright said. Milford’s contaminated aquifer was put on the U.S. EPA’s “National Priorities List” in 2011, making it the federal agency’s responsibility to investigate it and pay to clean it up if no responsible parties can be found. The process includes public meetings and interviews with people living and businesses operating in the area.

Erica Fischer is office manager of Milford Village Veterinary Clinic at 736 Lila Ave. She was unaware of the contaminated aquifer but said she trusts officials with the city and with the state and federal EPAs who say Milford’s water is safe to use. Fischer, who lives in Goshen, doesn’t drink a lot of water. “We give it to our cats and dogs (at the clinic) and they seem to do just fine,” Fischer said.

quire gym-membership contracts for reimbursement. The previous policy did not require employees to provide a gym-membership contract. The policy was updated after a Community Press investigation revealed township officials didn’t have gym-membership contracts for 23 of 25 employees reimbursed for exercising in 2012 and 2013. And the two employees who did provide gym-membership contracts were reimbursed more than their gym memberships cost, according to the Community Press investigation. Employees are no longer reimbursed if they don’t provide a contract, Tracy said. The new policy also lowered the maximum reimbursement to $20 a month. It was previously $30 for attending a gym at least eight times a month. Tracy said the new policy is well-written and designed to catch potential misuse. Trustees Karl Schultz and Mary Makley Wolff were unable to be reached for comment. Want to know more about what is happening in Clermont County? Follow Keith BieryGolick on Twitter: @KBieryGolick

Temporary fire station proposed on S.R. 131 By Keith BieryGolick

MIAMI TWP. — Township trustees are expected to sign a two-year lease for warehouse space near state Route 131. The plan is to convert the building into a temporary fire station — a few hundred feet away from property trustees bought last year to build a new fire staFronk tion. The lease will cost taxpayers about $1,500 a month, said Miami Township Administrator Larry Fronk. The temporary station could be operational as soon as August, said Fire Chief Steve Kelly. “It’s not a lesser station in any way. It’s an opportunity to establish a presence that we don’t currently have,” Kelly said. The Miami Township Fire Department currently has three stations: 6492 Branch Hill Guinea Pike, 1154 U.S. 50 and 5888 McPicken Drive. Trustees last year bought 1.12 acres of land on Sugar Camp Road near state Route 131 with $275,000 of taxpayers’ money. Kelly expects the new station to handle about 25 to 27 percent of the department’s overall runs. The station also will al-

leviate the strain on the township’s McPicken Drive station, which takes the most calls of the three stations, Kelly said. Residents from the township’s White Gate Farm subdivision Kelly previously complained about slow response times. White Gate Farm is located off Dry Run Road, about half a mile from state Route 131. “I know there is segment of the community that has experienced some longer call times for service. So I’m excited to get out there and establish a presence,” Kelly said. Fronk said the lease could be extended after two years, but that is the minimum amount of time it would take to design and build a new station. Costs for renovating the interior of the building will be paid for by the original property owner, Kelly said. Kelly plans to staff three people in the approximately 1,800square-foot station, along with one fire engine and one ambulance. Want to know more about what is happening in Clermont County?

Before a new fire station is built on Sugar Camp Road near state Route 131 in Miami Township, township trustees are expected to approve a two-year lease for one section of this warehouse. The plan is to convert it into a temporary station. Three employees would staff the station, and they would have access to one engine and one ambulance.KEITH BIERYGOLICK/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

CNE catcher asserts herself in new role as leader By Mark D. Motz

OWENSVILLE — Doom doesn’t have to be a bad thing. In fact, Clermont Northeastern junior catcher Allison Gilkerson cut her competitive teeth with the Cincinnati Doom softball club, starting with the U10 team and eventually reaching the World Series in Texas as a U16 player. CNE reached two straight regional finals largely on the strength of Emily Anderson’s pitching and the high-level play of six other seniors. Anderson is off wearing another blueand-gold Rockets uniform for the University of Toledo, but Gilkerson remains behind the dish. “It definitely helps having her back there,” said Rockets head coach Bill Goldfuss. “We lean on her a lot. Not only is she our catcher, but she’s our big bat in the third hole. We’ll go as far as she can take us.” With only one senior on the roster - Abbi Pritchard Gilkerson assumed a leadership role. “I feel like I’m more aware of what’s going on on the field,” she said. “I feel like I have to let the freshmen know what to expect or where to be. I feel like I have to take the lead. It’s a huge role, but somebody has to do

it. I love it. I’m in every pitch, every play. “I feel like sometimes people get aggravated when I tell them something, but it’s just for the team. I feel like we have potential. We could win the league for sure and then in the tournament, who knows.” Goldfuss likes the attitude. “If you’ve got a veteran catcher, that’s huge,” he said. “She sees the whole field and knows what’s going on all around her. (Gilkerson) is more of a leader by example than getting up in people’s faces. We’re working on that, her being more of a vocal leader. “Two years with Emily and just putting the glove up has made this year a little bit of an adjustment. She has to think more back there and she has to be more active than she ever has with a ball going high or low. If you don’t have that person who’s going right to the glove every time, it’s a lot more work for the catcher. “I think we’re coming along. Once we get our defense set and the pitching is a little more consistent, we’ll be in good shape. We’ll be a lot better by the end of the season than where we started.” The youngest of Dave and Angie Gilkerson’s three chilSee CNE, Page A9

Milford senior out of cellar, on to college baseball By Mark D. Motz

MILFORD — Starting in the cellar leaves plenty of room for upward mobility. Milford High School senior Andrew Minton knows all about it. “We had a net in the basement,” he said. “My dad teed me up down there and let me swing. He threw grounders to me down there. From about the age of 4, that’s what we’d do.” The indoor work from toddlerdom forward translated well to the outdoor diamond. Minton who plays shortstop for the 7-4 Eagles - will play college baseball for Tiffin University next school year. He plans to study sports management with an eye to becoming a trainer or a scout. “I’m glad to be signed,” he said. “It’s a stress-free senior year. Having that out of the way just lets me concentrate on playing ball.” Milford head coach Tom Kilgore said Minton has been playing well the first half of the season.

“He’s a fourth-year varsity player; we brought him up his freshman year to solidify our defense,” Kilgore said. “In his senior year, he’s that much better. “He’s our lead-off hitter, but he’s also leading the team in RBIs. Not only does he set the table for us as a lead-off guy, he also drives in the most runs. That’s a tribute not only to his productivity, but also to the fact we’ve gotten some good productivity from the bottom third of our lineup. Andrew takes advantage of that.” “He’s got an outstanding work ethic. He’s not only prepared himself for this level, but he’s been working hard the last couple of years to get ready for the next level.” Probably not surprising given his family history. Cousin Wes Minton was Milford’s shortstop for the four seasons immediately prior to Andrew’s arrival. Wes now plays at Tennessee Wesleyan after two years at Parkland Junior College in Illinois. Kilgore also has his


Milford went into Easter on a three-game win streak after a 4-0 win over Hillsboro April 19. “I’d be content with where we are if we could have gotten a split with Kings,” said Eagles head coach Ton Kilgore. “We had two one-run games with them; we could have one both, especially the second game in extra innings. “That’s our goal in our league, to get three sweeps and three splits. That puts you at 9-3 in the league, which should be pretty good. With only a 12-game (league) schedule, getting swept kind of puts you behind the eight ball a little bit. Kings, however, lost a pair to Anderson April 18, leaving the Redskins atop the Eastern Cincinnati Conference at 5-0 with Kings at 4-2. Milford was 2-2 in league play so far, having earned one of its sweeps with a pair of victories over Turpin. “We’ll play a part in something, whether we win it or we’re the spoilers for somebody else,” Kilgore said. “We still play Walnut Hills (scheduled April 21 and 23), Anderson (scheduled April 25 and 28), Glen Este (scheduled May 5 and 7) and Loveland (Scheduled April 30 and May 2). “Everybody’s number-one or number-two pitcher can beat anybody else’s number one or two. So that leads to some great competition down the stretch.”

Rowing nationals coming to East Fork State Park The 2015 USRowing Club National Championships will be July 15-19, 2015, on Harsha Lake in East Fork State Park. The race will be hosted by Clermont Crew, in partnership with USRowing. The Club Nationals has become one of the largest summer regattas nationwide, featuring five full days of racing and more than 1,500 crews from youth, collegiate, and adult teams nationwide. The venue is no stranger to major national championship regattas; Harsha Lake was the home of the US Rowing Youth National Championships from 1995-2010, hosted the National Collegiate Rowing Championships from 1983-1996, and was for many years the home of the Midwest Scholastic Rowing Championships. Harsha Lake is owned by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and leased to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, which operates East Fork State Park. Beyond hosting collegiate dual racing already this spring, the venue will host UC’s Cincinnati Regatta, the Cincinnati High School Invitational, and the Midwest Junior Rowing Championships. The course will also host the Head of the Hidden Dragon head race in the fall. David Uible, county commissioner, said winning the race was a strong team effort; “The competition around the country for these major events is fierce. Clermont County has two important advantages: first, we have a world-class venue that includes Olympic starting blocks; second, we have an involved local community that is really proud to get behind this effort.” Mark Calitri, president of the Clermont County Convention & Visitors Bureau, said, “We compete every day to make Clermont County a preferred sporting destination by maximizing the county’s recreational assets. Our bid team worked hard to attract an event that will give the county a significant economic boost.” Commissioner Uible added, “Events like this bring money and jobs; the economic impact of this 5day event will approach $2 million. A rowing event of this scope creates a strong economic ripple effect through our entire community. As event participants explore Clermont County, beneficiaries include hotels, restaurants, retail locations, and many other businesses that cater to these visitors.” About 1,800 athletes will participate.

Moscow Monarchs play baseball without gloves By Scott Springer

MOSCOW — The village of Moscow in Clermont County is often associated with the nearby Zimmer Power Plant or the March 2012 tornado that ravaged more than 80 percent of the area. Two years after the natural disaster, supporters would like to present a new image of the place just off Ohio 52 as it runs parallel with the Ohio River. The official website reads, “The Village of Moscow, Ohio...a peaceful spot on the river.” With a 2010 Census population of 185, that’s usually the case. Urban sprawl has never reached the village that celebrates its bicentennial in two years. However, baseball has. As the old Moscow High School has been closed for years, the closest baseball anyone might find would be up what locals call “Nannygoat Hill” toward Felicity-Franklin. The Cardinals just started their program back a few years ago. Or, one could head west toward the city and up another steep hill to catch a New Richmond game on an artificial turf infield. Now, just behind the old school building that is now the community center at 30 Wells St., the Moscow Monarchs have taken the field.

Literally, it is a field; all grass. The Monarchs play vintage baseball sans gloves. They compete under 1865 game rules wearing uniforms of the day. For time perspective, President Abraham Lincoln was shot at Ford’s Theater April 14, 1865. “We do two seven-inning games,” team spokesman Joel Knueven said. “If it’s too hot, we play one nine-inning game.” The idea originated when Knueven, his brothers and father attended former Reds shortstop Barry Larkin’s induction

into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., in 2012. A recent game featured their “downtown” neighbors, the Losantiville Black Stockings, who play their games near the Eden Park reservoir. The rules are much different than modern-day baseball. The fly rule dictates that a batter is only out if the ball is caught on the fly. A foul ball can be caught “on the bound” (bounce) to record an out. Prior to 1865, a ball caught on the bounce was an out. There are no strikes or balls, but swinging and missing three times equa-

tes an out. A softer version of today’s ball is used and pitches are delivered underhand. The game ball is a little bigger than a regulation baseball and smaller than a softball. The Monarchs use period accurate bats made by the Phoenix Bat Co. out of Columbus. The thickness is designed to resemble bats of the 1865 time period. Bats are not cut off and are as long as the lathe was. A player in the day could cut his own bat to desired dimensions to change balance. Nine men in the same positions as today play. Thus far, spectators haven’t adopted 1860s attire, but there’s talk that some may as part of a dramatic presentation. Current fans are given a brochure detailing the history of the era and beginnings of the team. The green patch behind the village building and near the Moscow First Stop Marathon has been dubbed “Prospect Field.” “The original name of Moscow before it was settled was Prospect,” Knueven said. “The original field were fruit groves as there was a brandy distillery in town.” The Moscow nine are the first vintage team in Clermont County, according to the founder. Should curiosity strike along with an available picnic basket and blanket, fans are encouraged to attend the Monarchs’ next contest May 4 against Belle River out of Rising Sun, Ind.

mind. I’m thinking of situations and what I should do. Then if it happens, I’m prepared. I practice it, so I have it my muscle memory and I can just react naturally.” Minton had one memorable setback in the game and wears the scar to prove it. On a trip to Cooperstown for a U10 tournament with the Ohio Force, he walked out of a batting cage and into another

player swinging. Two days after having his braces removed, the bat knocked out several teeth and pushed some others through his lower lip. Minton had his jaw wired shut for a few weeks and had to wear a face mask on his batting helmet, but said it’s all part of baseball. “I was just mad I missed a game,” he said. “I love to play.”

versity, which is where Ashley got her undergraduate degree. “I can see myself going there,” Allison said. “It’s become kind of a tradition and it’s a beautiful campus. I’m not sure if I want to play softball, though. It’s a lot of work and I may just have to concentrate on school.” Gilkerson professed a love of animals and is considering a career as a veterinarian.

For now she’s happy as a self-described softball geek. “It’s definitely fair to call me that,” Gilkerson said. “It’s pretty much what I do all the time outside of school. I go to the batting cages. I hit into the net in the back yard. I work on my throws down to second base. I just want to keep getting better and helping the team.”

Milford schools should reject Common Core

Common sense would indicate that a school district staffed by hundreds of highly paid masters degree-level teachers and administrators would be able to design and implement a curriculum for student success without relying on top-down edicts from Washington, D.C., special interests. Apparently not so in Milford where it is embraced. “Common Core (CC),” the copyrighted, privately owned educational standards, were adopted sight unseen by 46 states in order either to receive federal “Race to the Top” (RttT) funds or to be able to waive RttT requirements. Written and promoted through funds provided by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the

Thomas B. Fordham Institute and others, CC’s stated purpose is to assure student college and career readiness. Randy Because CC Kleine COMMUNITY PRESS has been described as GUEST COLUMNIST “education without representation” (the adoption process by-passed state legislatures), currently over 100 bills are before state legislatures attempting to slow, stop, or reverse CC’s final adoption. The Ohio effort is being led by local mothers Heidi Huber and Thea Shoemake, founders of Ohioans Against Common

Core, who are criss-crossing Ohio to present the dangers to our children by a centralized, national curriculum over which parents and local school boards will have little influence. CC permits little deviation from its curriculum (only up to 15 percent) by local school officials. Federal involvement in CC (and in all education) is unconstitutional, violating the federalism concept commanded by the Ninth and 10th Amendments in the Bill of Rights. Furthermore, the federal statute known as General Educational Provisions Act (20 U.S. Code Section 1232a--prohibition against federal control of education) makes federal involvement illegal.

Parents oppose the exhaustive data-mining, recordskeeping, testing and assessments being imposed by CC on children, especially since it employs methods seen as developmentally inappropriate or insensitive. Such data, coveted by government, business, and industry, may haunt a child through life. CC-authorized textbooks may also be captured by politically correct points of view. Classical educators hold that man is essentially a spiritual being subject to physical needs and wants, and that education matures a student’s ability to think and reason to meet those needs while controlling his appetites. Personal development and knowledge is its own reward, leading to a

fully-civilized, unique human being. Schemes like CC see man only as a material being with no real will of his own. The student must be molded and shaped, not primarily for his own good, but for a utopian “good of society” imposed by elites who “know better.” Common Core is Marxist to the core, a “school-to-work” scheme akin to Stalin’s “Five Year Plans” and Mao’s “Great Leap Forward,” seeking to produce worker bees, consumers, taxpayers, and soldiers for a collectivized global economy. I ask the Milford schools and the state of Ohio to reject it. Randy Kleine is a resident of Milford.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Earth Day is April 22. What, if anything, do you do to observe Earth Day? Do you believe the day is more or less important than it was when it began in 1970? Why or why not?

“I will do absolutely nothing to observe earth day. I prefer to worship the Creator, rather than created things.”


“Technically, the Earth Day is probably more than what it was back then when it started, especially with all the cleanups and tree giveaways these days. “My son and I are planning on cleaning up the trash in the woods behind out house. It gets washed down the hill, through the storm drain from our street, right down into Clough Creek which flows right into the Little Miami.”

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Heroin, a pain killer, kills!

Responding to April 9 heroin article. In ’95-’96 I was fighting in Ohio for excruciating pain sufferers: spinal injuries, cancer, etc., getting proper pain management. Doing such advocacy revealed the power of Ohio’s medical and pharmaceutical political machine. Physicians, then, lacked backbone for fighting for their patients. By God’s enablement, that pain bill – which had been stuck “in committee” 25 years – finally came to a vote! In 1996 it became law - after the Medical & RX Boards got two words altered, and the clause which mandated M.D.s have four hours pain management training deleted. Lucrative pain clinics proliferated.

Those with good insurance were able to get appropriate pain medications. In 2012, I observed changes which indicated that killing of our citizenry had begun, and is now escalating. “Vested interests,” currently using Ohio’s ’96 euthanasia law, strengthened by present federal law, which “OKs” physicians to terminate individuals, are reducing the elderly, disabled, injured and indigent population. When persons with legitimate pain and health issues can no longer find knowledgeable M.D.s with the courage to “buck the system” dangerous street markets flourish. In “the streets” one never knows what one gets! Heroin, a pain killer, kills!

Thanks to firefighters, police

On March 25 my daughter's brand new home in Miami Township caught fire. Happily no one was injured. The quick response of not only the Miami Township, but also Goshen and Loveland fire departments, kept this fire from completely destroying the house. Firemen worked through the night helping my son-in-law with salvage efforts in areas where the fire was not active. We are all grateful to these firefighters, as well as the Miami Township police who spent this chilly night closing Cook Road and directing traffic. Patty Hogan Milford

By Keith BieryGolick

MIAMI TWP. — Mayhem is everywhere. That’s the slogan for the popular Allstate Insurance commercials featuring a brash, destructive character known as Mayhem. Now, there’s an other Mayhem sweeping the nation. “Fashion by Mayhem” is a blog started by Miami Township resident Angie Keiser. It features Keiser’s four-yearold daughter, Sydney, playing dress up. The twist is Sydney plays dress up with outfits the two make together out of paper, tape and not much else. Mayhem is a nickname Keiser gave her daughter because, as Sydney says, “I’m not quiet and I never sit still.” When running low on inspiration for dresses, which they make virtually every day, the duo turned to Hollywood’s red carpet for ideas. Sydney picked a few dresses she liked and they made them. Katy Perry. Taylor Swift. Jennifer Lawrence. “It’s just for fun,” Sydney said. Regardless, she outdid them all. For thousands of dollars less. Keiser, who runs a photography studio with her husband, Keith, in Milford, took photos of Sydney in the stylish dresses and posted them on her blog and Instagram account. Then the national media got interested. “Mayhem. It’s not just a nickname for our kid anymore. It very accurately describes

the past five days of our lives,” Keiser wrote on her blog March 2. After an interview with a friend in New York City was syndicated by The Huffington Post everyone wanted a piece of the two. “We were very aggressively pursued to do TV,” Keiser said. Another brief phone interview turned into pictures that were shared on the “Today Show.” Keiser said she didn’t know the pictures would be used on television. They were. Since then Keiser received more than 700 emails with media requests from all over the world. Everything from Globo TV in Brazil to newspaper publications in Germany, France and more. “You don’t know who’s real and who’s not,” Keiser said. “It’s the weirdest thing to get messages about Singapore television.” The photography business established by her husband, Keith, was flooded with phone calls and Keiser’s cell phone number was leaked. That’s when she contacted the Miami Township Police Department and got an attorney involved to help deal with the different offers coming in — from licensing deals to book offers. “You start realizing you child’s photo is all over the world. It’s a little scary,” Keiser said. Keiser had 1,011 Instagram followers a few weeks ago. That number jumped to 319,000 after the “Today Show” segment.

Keiser gained about 1,000 followers during a recent 45 minute interview and a week later reached more than 334,000 followers. Asked what makes people gravitate to the story, her husband shrugged. “I wish I knew,” Keith said. When pressed, he said it was the relationship between mother and daughter so many could relate to. For Angie, making paper dresses was never about fashion — or getting famous. It was about spending quality time with her daughter. “People have told me that the world is looking for good news stories,” Keiser said. “They found it.”

Rowing event may spark a revival for Harsha Lake By John Johnston

Harsha Lake at East Fork State Park in Clermont County has landed the 2015 USRowing Club National Championships, one of the largest summer regattas in the country. USRowing, the nonprofit governing body for the sport of rowing in the U.S., announced Monday that the event will be held July 15-19, 2015. About

1,800 athletes are expected to participate. Capturing the event could start a revival for Harsha Lake as a rowing venue. The lake hosted the USRowing Youth National Championships from 1995 to 2010, and the National Collegiate Rowing Championships from 1983 to 1996, USRowing said. “It is great to have Harsha Lake back on the national scene,” said A.J. Dominique,

USRowing’s events manager. “There are not many seven-lane race courses in the country.” As the lake’s rowing facilities declined in recent years, several premier events went elsewhere. So county officials, elected leaders and the Clermont County Convention and Visitors Bureau have recently sought funding for upgrades. The county is still awaiting word from the state on a $3 million capital funding request for

improvements to Harsha Lake. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers owns most of East Fork State Park and leases it to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. “The public has already paid for the facility to be created over the last 30 years. We have the ability to make it something great at quite a reasonable outlay,” said Paul Schmid, head coach for Clermont Crew, which will co-host the champi-

onships at East Fork in partnership with USRowing. Capturing the 2015 event will be a boon to local hotels, which should see an influx of several thousand visitors in addition to the crews. Clermont County Commissioner David Uible said the economic impact could approach $2 million. This year’s USRowing Club National Championships will be held July 16-20 at Melton Hill Lake in Oak Ridge, Tenn.

take part in the event. “There are so many dedicated volunteers, especially in the Village of Amelia,” said Julie Wartman, Administrative Manager for Amelia. “Volunteering brings our community together; every year I see more Amelia residents participate and take pride in our community.” This event marks the 10th year of participation for Milford Junior High families. Rachelle Rapp, a Milford Junior High teacher who organizes the student group each year, sees how the event motivates students to protect the Earth and become better stewards in their communities. “We had 150 participants last year at our clean-up site,” Rapp said. “Community service experiences like this help students grow and influences the way they think about their environment.” The Spring Clean-Up is an event for all ages. A list of locations and an online registration form can be found on the Clermont Soil & Water Conservation District’s website.

Career center has one of the best dinners

Howdy Folks; As I write this the snow is 1 inch on our truck; just yesterday it was in the 60s, WOW, what a change, but folks say if you live in this area, the weather can change quickly. We hope you had a happy Easter, sorry we forgot to wish you happy Easter last week. I wrote about my hometown, there were some businesses I missed. One of them is the Ben Franklin Store, the same family has been there 70 years. Now there has been three generations there, but if you need anything in the fabric, crafts, candy, framing, and more, anything else the store has it. Now I will tell you about our cat, 'Chester.' He got his fuss ball caught in the Velcro in a belt Ruth Ann uses. He tried for over a half hour to get it loose. He had it on the couch and would fall off, with the belt, then he would run and jump on the fuss ball. That didn't work either. Then he would try to pull the ball off. He was getting frustrated, then he grabbed the belt and ran, dragging it to the bedroom. Ruth Ann went and took the fussball off the Velcro. Chester was by that time tired so he laid at Ruth Ann's feet and took a nap. Now this is not the end of Chester's activities. The other morning at 6:30 he was getting hungry. Now he has dry food in his bowl, but that is not the canned food. He started trying to wake me by pawing me on the shoulder, that did wake me, but I acted like I was still asleep. After a few paws on my shoulder he bit me very lightly on the arm. He jumped down on the bed watching to see if that got my attention. Well, it did. I raised up and he took off for the kitchen then Ruth Ann went out and gave him some canned food. During the good warm weather, Ruth Ann leaves the kitchen door open and the screen door shut. This has Chester's attention. He will sit and look out and see a squirrel; he gets excited. When one of us are outside he is unhappy and keeps running around, then when that one comes in, he is very happy. What a blessing he is. I forgot to write about the U.S. Grant Career Center dinner, will be held on April 26 starting at 5 P.M. The price for the dinner is $5. The school does this to thank the community for their support. The greenhouse will

also be open at this time. If you have never been there you are missing one of the George best dinRooks ners of your life. OLE FISHERMAN The students do the cooking with the help of Ray and Gary. These fellers are good. Last Saturday the Owensville Historical Society held a meeting and planned the year’s activities and getting ready for the fair, and ready to open the log cabin for the summer. There is always plenty of work to get ready for the year, with the museum and log cabin, we hope plenty of folks will turn out to help. The Old Bethel M.E. Church here at East Fork had a wedding last Saturday for a granddaughter of Carl and Juanita Ely; there was a large crowd. The bride and groom were very beautiful. These young folks will have memories of her grandpa to last a lifetime. This always pleases Ruth Ann and me. There are some special events coming up, one is C.A.S.A. which is a program to benefit Clermont Kids from the Juvenile Court. This is held at the Receptions Conference Center at Eastgate, on April 25th from 6 p.m. until 10:30 P.M. For information you may call 7327169. The next one is Grants Farm and Greenhouses’ Open House, at their Bucktown location, the state. Route 131 location, and at the Milford Garden Center. They offer 20 percent off on all purchases the weekend of April 26 and 27. Ruth Ann and I will be there on the 27. The next one is Grassy Run Rendezvous, at the Williamsburg Park, on the 25th is for school kids, then it is open to the public on the 26th and 27th. The Grange will not be there this year. The Williamsburg Eastern Star will be doing the food booth. The Boars Head Bait Shop held a Crappie Tournament last Sunday and the fishing is getting better. The winner had about 6 lbs. of crappie; one feller had a crappie 17 inches long. Stat your week by going to the House of worship of your choice and praise 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.
