Milford High School alum Jeff Sullivan and Dan Vinson conduct an in-flight refueling operation with a C-17 transport over the Black Sea. The C-17 was on its way to deliver supplies to soldiers in Afghanistan.
By Mary Dannemiller
When 1984 Milford High School graduate and Ohio Air National Guard Lt. Col. Jeff Sullivan left for Incirlik Air Base in Adana, Turkey, he knew he’d miss home. What he didn’t know was he wouldn’t be the only Eagle flying over the Black Sea to provide inflight refueling support to aircraft coming and going from Iraq and Afghanistan. His co-pilot turned out to be Lt. Dan Vinson, a 1999 Milford High School graduate. “It’s pretty cool when you think about it,” Sullivan said. “I’m all the way over in Turkey, 10,000 miles away, and I’ve got a guy who went to the same high school as me. It gives you a sense of home.” Vinson and Sullivan are members of the 121st Air Refueling Wing based in Columbus at Rickenbacker Air National Guard Base. They spent about two months flying KC-135R tankers to fuel military aircraft carrying everything from supplies to wounded soldiers. “Fuel down in Afghanistan is limited,” Sullivan said. “They go to small fields and they don’t have a lot of fuel. They also don’t like to spend very much time on the ground because of the threat from the enemy.” After discovering they were both from Milford, the two bonded quickly, Vinson said. “When you’re behind a jet you have to be able to predict what it’s going to do five or 10 minutes from now and it’s the same thing with your pilot,” he said. “When you’re flying you have to be able

Sullivan is a 1984 Milford High School graduate and Vinson is a 1999 graduate. to know what they’re going to do and what they want. It can take a long time to learn each other, but we did it in a like week. It was like we’d been flying together for 10 years.” Both men were athletes at the high school and teased each other about the difficulty of playing football in 1984 versus 1999. “I played in the old Eastern Hills League and Dan was part of the Greater Miami Conference so we talked about the differences,” Sullivan said. “He likes to claim
we didn’t have it as tough back then, but I beg to differ.” Vinson also said he teased Sullivan about his age, but said they worked together to represent Milford well. “He’s old and I made of him for that, but we teamed up against everybody else when we had down time,” he said. “We made a strong team.” When they accomplished a goal or had a successful mission, they’d even call it “Doing a Milford,” Sullivan said.
“We’d say it when we did something great,” he said. The duo returned from overseas Monday, April 19, and though Vinson lives in Morrow and Sullivan lives in Milford, the two plan on flying together again. “Having two of us from Milford brought our crew a little closer together and gave us a sense of home and a desire to really do a good job over there,” Sullivan said. “If you tell everybody you’re from Milford you better be doing your job right and I think we did.”

Milford High School offering after prom activities Community Press Staff Report Parents and volunteers have been busy since January creating murals, props and decorations that will transform Milford High School into a building the students won’t recognize when they arrive to attend the after prom party Sunday, May 16. This year marks Milford’s 22nd consecutive after prom party sponsored by the Milford High School Parent Teacher Student Association. The largest volunteer effort at the
school requires months of preparation, hundreds of volunteers and thousands of dollars to be successful. After prom is an all-night party designed to give students a safe place to have lots of fun without drugs or alcohol. The party is open to any junior or senior student and their guest whether they attend the prom dance or not. The after prom party follows the dance, scheduled this year for Saturday, May 15, and is a lock-in. Students are required to arrive between 12:30 a.m.
and 2 a.m. or a call is made to parents informing them their student is not at the event. Nearly 800 students are expected to attend after prom. Since its inception 22 years ago, the Milford community has experienced many safe prom years. After prom tickets are $15. To keep the party appealing and affordable for students, a great group of parents and volunteers generate funds and come up with fresh ideas, prizes and activities each year.

Veterans in Clermont County now have a new, expanded clinic closer to home. The Cincinnati Veterans Affairs opened the Community Based Outpatient Clinic at the corner of Ohio 32 and Beechwood Road in Mt. Carmel. The clinic, which replaces the old clinic on Ferguson Road, has 15,000 square feet of office space and is the largest of the VA’s five outpatient clinics, said Cincinnati VA public affairs officer Todd Sledge. There are currently four primary care physicians at the clinic and space for three more. The clinic also houses mental health care providers, pediatrists, optometrists and nutritionists. Other practices, such as dermatology and cardiology, also could be housed at the clinic in the future, Sledge said. Bringing the new clinic to Clermont County was possible partially because of the VA’s relationship with the Clermont County Veterans’ Service Commission, Sledge said. During the ribbon-cutting ceremony Nov. 10, Clermont County Veterans’ Service Commission Executive Director Dan Bare gave a heartfelt thanks to the VA staff. “This clinic is absolutely wonderful for our veterans, their families and our community,” Bare said. “I can’t

Sexual assault is not something that just happens in a dark alley in the big city – it affects people in every community. “I think the problem is that people think about stuff like this happening in the city, but 80 percent of the time, it’s someone the victim knows. Sexual assault is happening within our families, our groups of friends, our teams ... It’s not just strangers,” said Julie Pedersen, prevention education coordinator at the YWCA Eastern Area. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and the YWCA Eastern Area as well

as LifePoint Solutions are working to spread the word about their programs, services and resources. Pedersen said sexual assault can mean a variety of things, but it’s usually used to describe a non-consensual confrontation and could be anything from touching to intercourse. It’s also sexual assault to do those things to someone who cannot give their consent such as people who are under the influence and those who are not mentally able to consent, including youth. To help raise awareness during April, the YWCA is working with a group of area bars and restaurants, including Rhino’s, to put up table tents about sexual assault. The table tents say things like, “You are not alone” and “Just because he bought you dinner doesn’t mean you owe him,” and lists the center’s sexual assault services hotline, 800-644-4460. “Our hotline is a great resource ... When something like this happens, people don’t know what to do. We can process things with them and talk to them about the steps to take and the options they have,” Pedersen said. Those calls are anonymous. Any restaurant or bar owner or manager who would like the table tents should call Pedersen at 7320450, ext. 15. Also in April, the YWCA will be hosting Sex in the SAC (Student Activity Center) at UC Clermont College. This will be the second year for the event, which is aimed at teaching students about the body and healthy sexual-
ity. This event will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 27. For more information about the YWCA Eastern Area and its programs, contact 732-0450. Another local organization reaching out to sexual assault victims is LifePoint Solutions, formally the Clermont Counseling Center, which has locations in Amelia, Milford and Eastgate. LifePoint Solutions offers a wide variety of group and individual counseling services including a Women of Worth program and one-onone therapy sessions. “It’s important for victims to seek treatment because, if those emotions are not dealt with, they can influence your relationships and affect your own self worth,” said Trisha Burke, co-CEO of LifePoint Solutions. “It takes a lot of energy to hold things inside.” Burke said the LifePoint Solutions staff includes counselors, psychologists and support services to help people, including victims of trauma, deal with mental health. “With sexual assault, you have to help people understand what happened and help them put their lives back together,” Burke said. “Often you have to channel that anger and frustration into something positive or it just eats away at you.” LifePoint Solutions, unlike some individual therapists, can accept patients without insurance or who may not be able to pay for services. For more information, contact LifePoint Solutions at 9477000.

Clermont Co. offices to be rearranged, renovated By Kellie Geist email@example.com
At least five Clermont County offices will be playing musical chairs before the year ends. When the expansion on the county’s new underground emergency operations and communications center opens in the next couple of weeks, the Information Services Department will move from the planning building to the new location. Facilities Director Wade Grabowski said the move will create a “domino effect” of upgrades and relocations
for a number of county offices. First, the Department of Economic Development, which currently shares space with the Information Services Department in the planning building, will move to the third floor of the county’s administration building. This will leave the planning building empty, said county Administrator Dave Spinney. At that point, probate court will move from the second floor of the Heritage Building into planning building, filling all but four offices, which Spinney said will be addressed later.
“We want to move the probate court out of the Heritage Building ... That space is not effective for them and we have put off changes they’ve needed in that building for a decade,” Spinney said. Once the second floor is vacant, it will be renovated, Spinney said. While no official decision has been made on who will move into the Heritage Building, Spinney said they are considering bringing the coroner’s office and the victim’s witness office and maybe another office into the Heritage Building. Those offices currently are in separate owned
and leased spaces. Spinney said these moves would be the first few in a long-term plan to better organize and consolidate the county’s operations. “We need to consolidate and get out of leases and less effective buildings,” he said. In the future, the county will need to address other facility concerns including juvenile probation, the prosecutor’s office and the records center, Spinney said. The renovations will be made using Replacement and Improvement Funds,
and Spinney said the cost should be minimal, howev-

McCormick Elementary School’s sixth-grade band members performed for the school’s PTO April 20. The students, under the direction of Paul Schrameck, played pieces that showed their instrumental progress through the school year. Band members from all six of the district’s elementary schools will play together for the first time May 11 for the band program’s annual May concert at the high school.

Milford boys eye state again in ‘10
Eagle boys’ lacrosse ranked No. 2 in Ohio’s Club Division By Anthony Amorini firstname.lastname@example.org
Milford’s boys lacrosse team is off to fast start this spring at 8-4 through 12 games as the Eagles eye a third consecutive trip to the Club Division State Championship finals. The Eagles twice finished as Ohio’s Club Division runner-up after losing during the state finals in 2008 and 2009. Despite graduating a number of key players in 2009, head coach Brian Cross and his Eagles still harbor high expectations for the 2010 tournament, the coach said. “The boys have expressed that their main goal is not just to make
the (Club Division state) finals again but to win and become state champs,” Cross said. “As stated in their words: ‘Bring home the gold.’” With four games left on its schedule, Milford has already eclipsed its win total from 2009 following a 7-7 season last spring. A host of second-year starters return for Milford led by senior captains Jake Gilpin (defense), Will Martin (midfield) and Eric Fish (midfield). Additional second-year starters returning for the Eagles include junior Pat McClanahan (midfield, attack), senior T.J. Cox (defense), junior Jake Harrington (midfield), junior Matt Butler (goalie), junior Clark McCloud (attack) and senior Nathan Veenemeyer (attack). Though many players return for Cross, Milford’s top two scorers from last spring, Will McClanahan and Andrew Kitzmiller, both gradu-
ated in 2009. Will is playing for the collegiate program at the College of Mount St. Joseph. “We began to rebuild this year with remaining starters from last year and five or six underclassmen,” Cross said. “The returning starters are mainly juniors and seniors and are beginning to gel better at this point in the season as compared to last year. “They are focused on their goals and it shows in practice,” Cross added. Several new additions will also help Milford in 2010 including senior Caleb Greve (defense), senior Jason Butler (midfield), senior Joey Hammond (midfield) and sophomore Cole Ciambro (midfield), Cross said. Through its 8-4 start, Milford notched wins over the 7-2 squad from Springboro, 14-9, and the 6-1
team from Lebanon, 6-3, while stringing together a six-game winning streak. Several difficult road games remain on the Eagles schedule including Division I Sylvania Southview (May 7) and Division II St. Francis DeSales (May 8). Sylvania Southview (10-0) and St. Francis DeSales (10-1) both started the 2010 season with impressive records. Milford closes its season May 14 with a home game against Division II Indian Hill (7-3). “We have a great bunch of kids who seem to understand what it’s going to take to reach their goals,” Cross said. Milford was ranked No. 2 in Ohio’s Club Division, according to state-wide computer ratings at www.laxpower.com through its 8-4 start behind only No. 1 Centerville (7-1).

Strategic choice of intervention for schools
For the Milford Board of Education meeting in April, the district continued its schedule of presentations related to the district’s long range plan. The long range plan includes a focus on specific aspects of district operations to target for review and/or changes. For April, the discussion revolved around the strategic choice of intervention. The Long Range Plan Committee determined that the goal of intervention is, “We will address the needs of all students through differentiated instruction and targeted intervention.” Milford High School Principal Nancy House and Boyd E. Smith Elementary Principal Dr. Jill Chin joined me for a presentation about
the district’s intervention program called Response to Intervention. RTI is a systematic approach to providing intervention to students. In the Milford Tim schools, we incorAckermann porate three tiers of service dependCommunity ing on the needs Press guest of the student. columnist Tier 1 is the core instructional intervention in which teachers target all students through differentiated instruction.

CH@TROOM April 28 questions
Do you, or would you, allow your high school-age child to go on a spring break trip? Why or why not? “Never! Why is it that parents think their kids need to go away on their own before they are 18 on a trip that will mostly be unsupervised? Even if chaperones are present they can’t possibly monitor every minute of every child there (Natalee Holloway is a prime example). “Usually when something tragic happens (the St. Xavier football player who fell to his death, highly intoxicated, or the Notre Dame student who crashed her car full of fellow students, most of whom did not wear seatbelts), it’s preventable. Letting an inexperienced person drive a whole car full of students (if they are under 18 drivers in Ohio, they are not allowed to have more than one other person in the car with them unless related) on a long trip, or another to go where there will always be alcohol just invites trouble.” R.L.H. “Yes I would. I went on break in high school with no parent within 700 miles. No cell phones or any communication devices, expect your good old fashioned land-line. “We called home when we got there, once in the middle of the week and then saw our parents when we got home. “My parents trusted that I wouldn’t get out of control, based on the fact that they had already given me on many occassions, responsibilty tests out on my own, to screw up and learn ... and I did. “We have to trust ourselves that we have given our kids some solid advice, let them go out in the world and hope that they listened. “Parents who hover over their kids too much can cause more harm than good. Let them go explore, have fun and leave the praying to God to us the parents that they stay safe from harm and use their heads. “Unfortunately, sometimes, even the best parenting in the world can’t stop tragic events, accidents, that change our lives forever. It’s no one person’s fault, it’s, well life lived, no matter how long.” M.J.Y.

Send your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org with “chatroom” in the subject line. “I would not allow my highschool age child to go on spring break. To be in an unsupervised environment away from home with all the different temptations this is just irresponsible. “No matter how mature your child is, why put them in a situation that even grown adults can not handle?” I.B. “When my children were in high school, they were allowed to go on spring break with their friends only if parents were going too. I was the mean mom who did not let them go to Fort Lauderdale, Daytona, or wherever the hot spot was for that year. “I am sure they hated me for that, but they all grew up safely and are quite well-adjusted despite their deprived teen-aged years.” J.S.B. “All of our children are grown now, so it’s not an issue. But I will still answer it. Our two boys didn’t express any interest in such ‘extracurricular’ activity. “One was too busy with school, having skipped seventh and eighth grades to go to Covington Latin and get his education. The other one just didn’t care about that kind of thing. “Our daughter was another story, but we would never have let her go on a spring break while she was in high school. However, when she was in college, in her senior year, we did give our blessing, reluctantly. “You ask ‘why or why not?’ The answer is obvious: young kids should not be left unchaperoned and unmonitored until they are old and mature enough to be careful, safe, and smart. The recent deaths of young people due to falling after drinking should be enough of an answer to ‘why not.’” B.B.

standing of the lessons. They also work to prevent each student from falling behind. Tier 2 is a targeted group intervention in which teachers identify the students who are at a high risk of falling behind or failing to understand the material. This part of the program involves a rapid response to identify these students early. Since teachers work in groups, there is efficiency in helping multiple students with the same intervention. Tier 3 is an intensive, individual intervention. Teachers identify individual students who are in the greatest need for specific and very intense intervention. These students require individual work with a teacher, teacher aide or an inter-
ventionist to help them with the areas he or she is struggling. This plan is very intense, but it also requires a greater length of time for effectiveness. In order for the RTI program to be effective, our staff requires professional development in order to understand the program and how it works. When all of the teachers and staff share their understanding of the program, that will help to improve communication of what needs to be done to help each student. Our teachers and staff use both universal screenings and data to determine who may need interventions. It is important that our teachers work with the same system so that as students advance to

Firefighting’s ‘toughest two minutes’ comes to Milford During the weekend of April 17 and April 18, if you were in the Milford area and saw the five-story tower erected in the Milford Target parking lot you were witness to a spectacular event. The Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge, a national traveling event that showcases the skills firefighters may be called upon to perform during the course of their daily duties. The challenge consists of stations which require agility, strength and endurance. The firefighter athletes, some of whom came from as far away as Alaska and a team from Canada, choose to compete in an event that requires you to complete strenuous tasks that involve climbing, hoisting and pushing your aerobic endurance in less than two minutes is even more a testament to their dedication to the firefighting profession and their physical well-being.
While the thousands of spectators enjoyed the event, it cannot be understated that without the efforts and determination of Tom Porter, Ross Pawlak, Mark Flanigan, Karen Huff and Amy Brewer, the Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge would not have been brought to the Milford-Miami Township area. These individuals lead a committee that secured generous sponsorship from Milford Target, Bethesda Hospital, Bethesda Arrow Springs, The Lykins Companies, Midwestern Plumbing, Duke Energy, Lehr’s Meat, Scott Croswell and Croswell Bus Lines, PDQ, Hilton Garden Inn, Clermont County Convention and Visitors Bureau, The Terrace Park Volunteer Fire Department and the Milford-Miami Township Chamber of Commerce, Putters and Texas Roadhouse.

Those who can’t love their neighbors as themselves The scriptures direct us to “love your neighbor as yourself (Matthew: 22:39). The “as yourself,” is usually considered a fait accompli. We presuppose we do love ourselves. Yet, myriads of us don’t. And if we don’t, relationships, friendships and marriages are negatively affected. Over the last century psychology has recognized an almost epidemic-like rise in narcissism. This term is misunderstood by most. Narcissistic persons are imagined as people over-dosed on pride, absorbed in themselves and oblivious to the needs and feelings of anymore else. This persona is a veneer, an unconscious strategy, a compensation to hide their core perception of their inferiority. Narcissists usually come from adequate-appearing families. They are impoverished, nevertheless, by the lack of appreciation of self conveyed to them in their upbringing. They did not get enough attention from parents or guardians, especially attention in the way they needed it. Narcissism is not too much self but, rather, not enough self. As young chil-
dren, their true self was not acknowledged and fostered. They were not Father Lou permitted enough Guntzelman authentic Perspectives and spontaneous expression of who they really are. Author and psychotherapist Stephanie Dowrick states in her book, “Intimacy & Solitude,” “The narcissistic adult is not one who has been ‘spoilt’ by too much attention, but someone whose life has been spoilt because those who cared for him in infancy and childhood were unable to see or know who he was, and to respond to that. Instead they saw a reflection of their own needs, or someone who intruded upon their own needs.” This treatment gradually forms and launches into life an empty person who doesn’t know who he is, who feels inadequate, and certainly doesn’t (as scripture asks) love the pathetic person he perceives himself to be. So, he or she learns to
conceal their sad embarrassment by acting superior in their demeanor, words and behavior. They seek to please to gain acceptance. They thrive on constant praise and approval to prop up their concocted image. The affirmations and love offered to narcissists never seem to be enough. If early emotional neglect from significant people implied to them they were unlovable and worthless, they are likely to be distrustful of the people who claim to love or admire them now. Why? Dowrick says, “This is because it is impossible to accept the love of others until you love your own self.” What are people to do who are in a relationship with a narcissisticallytinged person? First, the narcissist must become aware (perhaps with professional help) of his or her condition and be willing to work with their own inner life. Second, if their partner in the relationship genuinely loves them, then the partner (perhaps also with professional assistance) can learn suitable affirmations and expressions of love to be of help in their growth.
Hope for progress comes from the intense personal work of the narcissist, the grace and love of the Creator and the genuine love of their partner. Real love is
Christ Presbyterian Church of Milford dedicated some very special stained glass windows made for their sanctuary by the women of their church. The windows were funded by gifts and memorials from the congregation. About four years ago several women talked about how nice it would be to have windows that represent each of the Christian holidays during the year. Although only one woman was an experienced glass worker, the others were willing to learn the craft. They began with the first stained glass panel, Advent, to see if they really wanted to do this very large project. They had to learn all the skills needed to complete a panel. After this they were hooked and made the next nine – each one an original and complex design. Although each panel depicts a different Holy day and has a completely different feel, they work together. They are all bordered with gold glass that unifies the total look. All are designed in an informal style. After completing the main panels, the ladies decided to take on the task of 20 more panels to put on either side of each of the original 10. This results in a continuous row of glass panels down each side of the sanctuary. The windows were completed by: Margaret Angel, Trish Reis, Elyce Malott, Martha Enriquez, Becky Jones, Patty Fix, Cindy Combs, Margaret Harrison, Jean Holmes, Brenda Bayne, Jan Sawyer, Laura Jones and Linda Rearick.

What moms are asking for – recipes
Mother’s Day is coming up, so I wanted to devote this column to all the requests from our Community Press and Recorder moms. And I know I preach this all the time, but remember all the “moms,” biological or otherwise, who’ve been a blessing to you. They come in many forms and guises! Give them a call, a card, or an invitation to share your table.
Grilled chicken breast with watermelonjalapeño salsa
For Georgeann Kennedy who wanted a fruit salsa recipe. I’m going her one better with this duo. Jessie, my daughter-inlaw, made this and it’s a favorite at everyone’s house now. The salsa is great with just about any kind of grilled meat. If you can’t find mango, then papaya will work well.
1 tables p o o n chopped f r e s h oregano 1 tables p o o n Rita olive oil Heikenfeld 1 teaspoon chili Rita’s kitchen powder 3 ⁄4 teaspoon cumin 1 ⁄2 teaspoon salt 3 garlic cloves, minced Four 6-ounce chicken breasts Put together in bag and marinate in refrigerator for at least four hours.
2 cups watermelon 1 cup mango 1 ⁄4 cup finely chopped red onion 2 tablespoon cilantro 2 tablespoon jalapeño pepper 1 tablespoon lime juice 1 ⁄2 teaspoon sugar
⁄4 teaspoon salt
Mix together and put on top of grilled chicken.
Like Olive Garden Pasta e Fagioli
OK, I’m sharing this again especially for Dottie, a Northern Kentucky reader who lost her recipe. “It’s been a favorite, everyone loves it and I can’t find it,” she said. Happy Mother’s Day, Dottie! 1 to 11⁄4 pounds pound ground beef (Sirloin is good) 1 generous cup diced onion 1 generous cup julienned carrot 1 generous cup chopped celery 1 very generous teaspoon minced garlic 28-ounce can diced tomatoes 15-ounce red kidney beans, undrained 15-ounce Great Northern
beans, undrained 15-ounce tomato sauce 12-ounce V-8 1 tablespoon white vinegar Salt and pepper to taste 1 teaspoon each: dried oregano and basil 1 ⁄2 teaspoon dried thyme 1 ⁄2 pound ditalini pasta
Brown beef and drain off most of fat. Add onion, carrot, celery and garlic and sauté for 10 minutes. Add rest of ingredients, except pasta, and simmer one hour. About 50 minutes into simmering, cook pasta in boiling water just until it is al dente, or slightly tough. Drain. Add to soup. Simmer about 10 more minutes and serve. Serves eight.
Easy potato pancakes
For Mrs. Ratterman. Check out our Web version for potato pancakes like Perkins restaurant at www.communitypress.com. Now, don’t turn up your nose at frozen shredded potatoes. These are actually my preference in this dish, since they keep their color and are ready to go.
1 pound shredded fresh potatoes, or frozen potatoes, thawed and squeezed very dry 2 eggs, lightly beaten 2 tablespoons flour or bit more to hold mixture together Salt and pepper or seasoning salt to taste 1 small onion, minced finely Handful of fresh parsley, minced
Mix everything together. With a small ice cream scoop or 1⁄4 cup measuring cup, scoop out portions of potatoes on hot griddle or omelet pan which has been filmed with a light coating of olive or other healthy oil. Cook until golden brown on both sides.
Tips from readers: Cottage cheese pie
Boy, the recipes keep pouring in for this heirloom pie. Thanks to everyone who is sharing. We’ll keep an active archive of them. Now some folks have been having trouble with the baking time on the cottage cheese pie with Splenda printed recently. Joan Maegley of Delhi
called me as hers was baking – I told her to continue to bake it at 350 and if it browned too much before it was done, to cover edges with foil. Joan reported back that it took about 1 hour and 15 minutes (original recipe said 30 minutes). “It was perfect,” she said. If any of you are having trouble with any of the cottage cheese pie recipes and the baking time, just bake it until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out fairly clean.
Rooting out recipes
• Requests for Ruth Lyons coffeecake are still coming in. You can e-mail or call us (check out the info at the end of this column) if you want the recipe. I have been getting so many requests I can’t keep up! • Sauerbraten gravy too light. Mrs. Ratterman makes this yummy dish “but the gravy is too light – any way to darken it without using Kitchen Bouquet?” Rita Nader Heikenfeld is Macy’s certified culinary professional.

Museum hosts history days
singers and performers. While setting there some folks that were setting behind George us and we Rooks were talking. They said Ole there were Fisherman four generations there and Grandma was singing in the group. If you ever get the chance to go hear them please go. The theater was full and this is an evening of entertainment. They sang some of the older songs. They also honored some young people who they had given scholarships to. Now on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the 18th annual Grassy Run Heritage Rendezvous was held at the Williamsburg Community Park and it was a wonderful event. The weather was wet but everyone had a good time. The Monroe Grange served food all weekend. On Saturday morning there was scrambled eggs, sausage and biscuits. On Sunday morning was biscuits and sausage gravy. Saturday evening Ruth Ann and I attended the wedding of Sarah Michelle Philhower and Anthony Jerry Knight, this was a very beau-
tiful wedding and a large crowd. The wedding ceremony was done by The Rev. Bowdle, at the Bethel United Methodist church. Grandpa Philhower read some of the love chapter of the Bible, congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Knight. Sunday morning the church service at the Grassy Run Rendezvous was held and conducted by Parson John Frank Jarbol. The service was wonderful and there was a good crowd attending. His reading was from Acts 26:28-29. Since we could not attend our church this service was so good, with folks asking for prayer for different sickness, and traveling mercies. The service closed by all singing Amazing Grace, then prayer. The wild turkey hunting season is in full swing, with a Clermont County harvest of 378 turkey so far. We have been watching the turkey this year in our back yard. I went to the mushroom woods last Monday to look for the morel mushroom, but didn’t find any, so I will look again. The crappie tournament sponsored by the Boar’s Head Bait Shop was last Sunday. There were 16 boats in this tournament. The fishermen can bring in seven crappie to be weighed. They have to be at least nine inches long, First
place was 5 pounds, 11 ounces, second place was 415-1/2, third place was 4-12, fourth place was 4-9. The big crappie weighed 1-8-1/2. The new size limit will make for better fishing in years to come. Now remember on May 8 there will be a big fest at Bethel. A one day event. There will be a quilt show at the Methodist Church, a piano on the corner (weather permitting) and puppet show at the library. The Bethel Lions Club will have a booth collecting used eyeglasses. The Lions Club will also be selling covered bridge prints by Werline, so stop at the Lions Club booth and say hello. They do so much for eye sight. The Riverside Coffee Mill on South Riverside Drive in Batavia, will hold a benefit waffle breakfast on May 8 from 9 a.m. to noon for the Clermont Y.M.C.A. leaders club. To help send teens to the Blue Ridge Leadership School to build character, spiritual, and physical fitness and to lead their peers.

Howdy folks; The busy time still continues here at the Rooks’ place. Last Tuesday the flag at the Old Bethel Methodist Church, here in the park at East Fork was replaced. The old flag was damaged from the weather and was up there for quite a while. We have the old one and it will be given to the proper folks to be burned in a ceremony. While I was there a feller told me a story about an older person setting at the base of a flag pole. The flag was tattered and weather worn. Another man walked up and said something about the flag, the feller that was setting there said to the other one, ‘set down and let me tell you the story about this flag.’ He proceeded to tell the story about the flag and the wars it had been in and what it means to the American people, that it means freedom and he was very proud of it. When the pledge to the flag is given we should all honor it by placing our hand over our heart and think about the service people that have served and given their lives for our freedom. Friday evening Ruth Ann and I went down to the Anderson Center Theater to enjoy the singing of the Forestaires. This is a group of ladies that are wonderful
