A home under construction at Willows Bend in Miami Township, site of the 2012 Homearama. JOHN SENEY/THE COMMUNITY PRESS said. The home, by Potterhill Homes, has features such as solar panels and geothermal heating and cooling that allow it to produce more energy than it uses. “The buyers will get a check back from Duke Energy every month,” Dressman said. The Potterhill home has not been sold, he said. Other homes at the show feature unique outdoor living spaces, Dressman said. “Willows Bend offers a lifestyle unlike any other - a gently rolling countryside, complete with stately trees and broad grassy meadows, providing an overall feeling of peace and

tranquility,” he said. When completed, Willows Bend will feature amenities such as a pool, recreational facilities, a pedestrian-friendly grid and hiking/biking trails, Dressman said. The development is in the Loveland school district. Over the past 50 years, 246 homes have been showcased at Homearama, said Meshell Giblin, managing partner of Brand Approach. Giblin said builders who have built 20 or more homes in Homearama shows include: Perry Busch Building Group, Hensley Homes and Daniels Homes.

McDarty missed no days By John Seney

Current and former students, parents and staff celebrated the 50th anniversary of Seipelt Elementary School May 20 with an ice cream social. THANKS TO MARIAH KNEPP

Seipelt Elem.’s 50th anniversary celebrated Current and former students, parents and staff of Seipelt Elementary gathered May 20 to celebrate the school’s 50th birthday with ice cream, lots of photos and catching up with old friends.

MIAMI TWP. — Andrew McDarty, who graduated from Milford High School May 25, did not miss much during his school career. In fact, he never missed a day. McDarty, the son of Kevin and Sherry McDarty of Miami Township, had perfect attendance from kindergarten through high school. Mark Lutz, principal at Milford High, agreed that is pretty rare these days. McDarty was the only member of the Class of 2012 to have perfect attendance through high school, he said. Lutz said McDarty was recognized for his achievement during a recent senior awards ceremony. McDarty said having the perfect record was “kind of cool.” “I never had to do any make-up work,” he said. The only close call was in second grade, when he was feeling sick the morning his class was

scheduled to go on a field trip to the Cincinnati Museum Center. He decided to go on the the field trip, but admits he wasn’t feeling very well by the McDarty end of the day. Otherwise, he said he got sick only on Fridays or weekends. During high school, McDarty participated in the water polo and swim teams. His senior year, he was in the school drama production “Bye Bye Birdie.” He also was president of the Spanish club and a member of the National Honor Society and robotics team. McDarty was a member of Boy Scout Troop 128 in Milford, where he achieved Eagle Scout rank. He plans to attend the University of Cincinnati next year and major in engineering.

CNE begins search for new superintendent By John Seney

STONELICK TWP. — Members of the Clermont Northeastern school board May 21 looking for a new superintendent. The Williamsburg school board May 17 picked Earley to replace Superintendent Jeff Weir, who is leaving July 31 to become the superintendent of the Clermont County Educational Service Center. CNE board members accepted Earley’s resignation May 21 and began reviewing applications for the position during an executive session. Board member Mike Freeman said the superintendent’s opening was posted and the board received four applications. Freeman said no decision has been made on how many applicants to interview. “We will interview multiple candidates if that’s the board’s

will,” Freeman said. When former CNE Superintendent Neil Leist left last year, the board picked Matt Freeman Earley, the principal of CNE High School, to replace him. Earley was to start his new job Aug. 1. In the meantime, Wayne Johnson, CNE assistant superintendent, was to run the district on an interim basis. Before becoming principal at CNE three years ago, Earley was principal at Williamsburg High School for six years. “I’m a part of that community as a parent and a resident, so there would only be one place I would leave CNE for and that would be going back to Williamsburg, back to where I came from,” said Earley after accepting the offer from Williamsburg.

These are some of the displays that people could view during the 50th anniversary celebration for Seipelt Elementary May 20. THANKS TO MARIAH KNEPP

Bus driver wins Ohio Road-E-O By Forrest Sellers

Indian Hill schools bus driver Nick Darnell holds a first-place trophy from his participation in the recent state Road-E-O competition. Darnell was a first-place winner 25 years ago in the International Road-E-O competition. He will compete once again in the International Road-E-O in July.

Twenty-five years ago Indian Hill bus driver Nick Darnell won the International Road-E-O competition. Once again he’s ready to get in the victory seat after recently winning the State Road-E-O competition. “It’s pretty much deja vu,” said Darnell, who has been in the transportation field for more than 30 years. “It feels good to know I can still do it.” Darnell, 51, has been a bus driver with the Indian Hill Exempted Village School District for a year after retiring as a transportation supervisor in the West Clermont Local School District. He has also worked in the transportation department in the Milford and Bethel school districts. “It’s the kids (and) the interaction with them,” he said about why he drives a bus. “It’s what I was meant to do.” Darnell, who is a resident of


Amelia, admits to being sightly nervous about the upcoming competition even with his years of his experience and several awards to his credit. “For me it’s a learning experience every time I do it,” he said about the event. “I learn something new each time.” The Road-E-O competition tests drivers in a number of areas ranging from an obstacle course to stopping at a railroad crossing.

The International Road-E-O will be in July in Milwaukee, Wis. He will be cheered on by several of his co-workers at the upcoming event. “I’m not surprised,” said Indian Hill Schools transportation supervisor Barb Leonard about Darnell’s victory in the state Road-E-O competition. “He takes such pride in driving the school bus. “That’s what he loves to do.”

DAYTON — It didn’t take long for Felicity-Franklin softball pitcher Montana Wear to get her first win at Wright State University. Unfortunately for the Clermont Northeastern Lady Rockets, it came at their expense. The Wright State signee shut out CNE 1-0 in the Division III regional final May 26 at Raider Stadium. “It’s been a great season,” CNE coach Bill Goldfuss said. “I’m disappointed for my players. They worked so hard to get to this point. They just ran into a team that is good; they’ve got a good pitcher who battles. We knew it was going to be a battle. 1-0 is nothing to be ashamed of, nothing to hang your head about. Twenty-six wins, and we’ve done a lot of things right. We just came up a tad short today.” It was a battle of top two pitchers based on ERA in the city. Going in, Wear sported a 0.14 ERA and CNE’s Emily Anderson had a 0.30. The Cardinals finally broke the 0-0 tie in the third inning on a

error by second baseman Raelyn Reynolds, who dropped a line drive with two outs scoring Kelsey Mitchell. That was all Wear needed as she tossed a complete game, striking out 12, walking three and allowing four hits. Anderson, a junior, didn’t back down from the senior. She answered with five strikeouts, zero walks and three hits. The run that scored was unearned. “She was very solid,” Goldfuss said. “We figured it would be a close game when you have two great pitchers on the mound. They both were great today and hit their spots. Both pitchers were on their game.” CNE looked to strike in the top of the first inning. With two ladies on base and Anderson at the plate, she ripped a single to left field that should have scored Mckena Miller from second base but the home-plate umpire made a controversial interference call saying she didn’t allow the shortstop a play on the ball. He called Miller out and the inning was over taking a run off the board for the Lady Rockets. “That run taken of the board in

the first inning was huge,” Goldfuss said. “We still battled to get people on, but we just could never do enough to get them in and across the plate. We battled for seven innings, and we did all we could. I’m just disappointed that these guys don’t get to play next week.” The Lady Rockets managed just four hits, but had one last opportunity in the sixth inning when they had two on with one

out, but back-to-back fly-outs ended the rally. They finish the season at 26-2 and ranked fifth in the DIII state poll. “We knew (Wear) was going to be good; we’ve watched her for the last three years,” Goldfuss said. “Emily was right there with her and they went toe-to-toe today. They are two of the best pitchers around, and we couldn’t really ask for anything else.”

Goshen High School’s track and field team advanced four athletes in five events to the regional meet, including one district champion. Junior Tiera Martinelli won the Division II New Richmond District pole vault championship. Junior Calvin Phillips qualified in both the shot put and discus throw. Sophomore Darren Wiley joined Phillips in the discus throw. On the track, freshman Brittany Clark advanced in the 3,200-meter run. With a trip to the state championship meet on the line, the athletes competed at the Regional meet in Dayton May 24-26. Clark made a big impression in her first year of varsity competition. Earlier this year, she set a new school record in the 3,200-meter run with a time of 11:57.92. Her time of 12:31.52 at the district meet was good enough for fourth place and a trip to regionals. With mild temperatures throughout the spring, weather was not much of a factor during the regular season. With temperatures soaring in the postseason, distance runners like Clark need to adapt quickly. “We’re hoping she’s gotten more acclimated to warm weather,” said Warriors head coach Jack Bailey. “The heat affects everybody.” Bailey believes that if Clark can get closer to her schoolrecord time from earlier this season, she will have a good chance of advancing to state. Goshen’s only district champion was junior pole vaulter Tiera Martinelli. She cleared 9 feet, 6 inches to win the title. “I thought she had a shot at it,” said Bailey. “She started to improve rapidly late in the season.” Martinelli suffered an ankle sprain early in the season, slowing her pace. As the ankle got stronger, Martinelli continued to vault higher. Her performance at the district meet may not be her peak. Phillips and Wiley showed the largest improvements over the course of the season, especially in the discus throw. “They both improved tremendously,” said Bailey. “They weren’t breaking one hundred (feet) at the beginning of the year.” Wiley had never thrown prior to this season. Phillips was able to adjust his throwing and putting motions to qualify in both events. They pushed each other in practice and their improvements paid off with topfour finishes at Districts. Phillips threw the discus 126’11”, while Wiley threw it 126’4”. Phillips put the shot 48’3.5”, good for second place at districts. “They both really improved their technique over the season,” said Bailey. “At the beginning of the year, they were trying to go too fast. They started slowing down, working on their technique and form, and that was the key for them.” There were no state qualifiers from the May 24-26 regional meet in Dayton.

Is government too big and intrusive? Why is today’s news headlines littered with stories depicting our government run amuck or seemingly out-of-control? The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) knowingly paying out $4.2 billion in income tax refunds to illegal immigrants; the General Services Administration (GSA) brazenly spending lavish amounts of federal funds on exorbitant meetings in Las Vegas; the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) intrusively conducting full body pat downs and detaining airline passengers during routine security checks at airports; the Secret Service, associating with prostitutes, when on assignment to protect the president; and, the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) top management publicly stating it enforces their laws similar to the Roman Empire -

identify a few non-compliers, crucify them and then watch compliance to their laws increase. Is our federal government to big and too intrusive in our lives? Yes, as the federal government grows, it becomes less efficient, more expensive and very difficult to effectively provide oversight and manage. That is why we continue to hear stories about government official’s abusive practices, wasteful expenditures and questionable administrative and enforcement processes. The above are just a few of the numerous examples of how big and bloated our federal government has become over the past several years. Since the last recession in December 2007, the government workforce (exclud-

Prayers said for county, nation Prayers go up for country, county, community and children. A bright blue sky, ole “Glory” waving in the breeze, prayers going up to God as hymns and patriotic music filled the air. On the National Day of Prayer, May 3, people came to the court house steps in Batavia to pray. Pastor Winston Lawson, Moscow Church of God gave the invocation. His church was damaged in the March 2 tornado. The county proclamation was presented to John Hale for his many years of being the soloist during this prayer service. Praying for our country was David Caudill, former clerk of courts while the Auditor Linda Fraley did a Bible reading from Psalms 33:11-12. Before the reading, Fraley thanked everyone for their prayers after the death of Batavia Township Trusteeelect Jim Bushman. Noted soloist, John Hale, sang some of our beloved patriotic songs. A standing ovation greeted those either on active military duty or vets now retired. Pastor Gus Lavin of the Laurel Methodist Church brought the prayer. Those standing there are America’s true heroes; these have paid the price for our freedom. Representing Clermont County was Judge Victor Haddad who read from 1 Tim. 2:1-2-3 while Pastor Mark Otten of Williamsburg’s Clear Mountain Community Church prayed for our elected officials. Emcee Bob Proud introduced our “hometown heroes” to another standing ovation. Sheriff Tim Rodenberg and Miami Township Fire Chief Jim Whitworth did a Bible reading. New Richmond Sgt. Floyd Henderson and Pastor Allen Clemmer of Monterey Baptist Church prayed for members of law enforcement, fire and EMTs. These days it seems every group or cause has a special day, week or month. Therefore the County Task Force decided to host a “Pastor Appreciation Day” on National Day of Prayer. We would like

to send out a big “thank you” to Pastor Dale Campfield and Eastgate Community Church, for the beautiful Libbee buffet that Bennett COMMUNITY PRESS his committee prepared GUEST COLUMNIST for pastors and their guests. After this delicious brunch everyone was invited to join us at the Court House steps for the annual Noon Prayer Service. A special thank you to soloists: Jennifer Thomas, Marcia Hacker, Eve Moody and children. Pastor John Martin of Eastgate Community Church prayed for our children, America’s future. As our prayers go up, we know that God’s blessings of freedom, faith and family come down. May we never forget to pray 365 days a year ... God bless America, America bless God.

Libbie Bennett is chair of the Clermont County Task Force for National Day of Prayer. 11 Chron 7:14

ing census and postal workers) has grown 11.7 percent, while adding 230,000 jobs. In President Obama’s FY 2012 budget, Larry Heller he proposes COMMUNITY PRESS adding 15,000 GUEST COLUMNIST more federal government jobs, 1,054 of which are needed to implement Obamacare. Our Founding Fathers knew that government, at its best, was a necessary evil for men to be able to live in a civilized society.They specifically crafted the United States Constitution, limiting the powers of the federal government and reserving the balance to the states and the people.

There is a direct correlation to increased government and the loss of our freedoms through excessive laws, over regulation, and burdensome procedures and processes on businesses and individuals. To stop and reverse these oppressive government actions, “We the People” must rise up and let our voices and concerns be heard in the November 2012 election. It is time to get involved within your neighborhoods and workplaces. Talk to everyone you know, and make sure they understand there is a clear difference between the two candidates for president of the United States. The current administration is an utter failure with a stagnant economy, sustained high unemployment, excessive spending, a bloated federal bureaucracy

and an unprecedented and relentless assault on our Constitutional freedoms. There is just over five months left until the next general election Nov. 6. Can America count on you to do your part in taking back our country? Let’s all work together to make sure everyone knows what is at stake at this critical time in our lives. Let’s bring back people of character, integrity and honesty to elected offices. We need elected officials who will uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution, not those who will trample it. We owe that much to ourselves, our children and their children.

Foster parenting is a love story My foster care story is a love story. But it’s not the kind of love story you expect. It begins with my divorce. In spite of my three beautiful children, I was feeling sorry for myself and began searching for something more. The answer to my prayers found me. A teenage girl from my neighborhood came to me for advice. Weeks later, she approached me, and told me I was very helpful to her. She said, “Miss Maria, you should become a foster mother.” The young lady went on to confess that she herself was a foster child. “What?” I said. “You can’t be; you don’t look like a foster child!” She responded, “That’s because I have a good foster mother.” My young neighbor refused to give up on me. She referred me to her foster mother, who in

turn, told me about Lighthouse Youth Services. The staff at Lighthouse is amazing! They are genuinely friendly, take Maria Bond COMMUNITY PRESS time to get to know you, welGUEST COLUMNIST come you with open arms, and value each and every person involved with foster care. I cannot say enough wonderful things about them. They taught and prepared me for what I may face as a foster parent, and are still there to support me every step of the way. I have been a foster parent for six years now. I have had 11 foster children in those years. Some more challenging than others, some staying longer than others, but, no matter what, each

of them experienced love. It is sad to think that not every child out there gets a hug before crawling into bed. I wish everyone had the opportunity to see the transformation of a child, with just a little compassion, patience and love. I have seen children completely changed in a matter of days. All they needed was for someone to teach them what love is. It is then that they learn to love themselves. And it really does work, if you take the time. Love changes people for the better, and I see it in my home every time a kid comes in. And the best part is, Lighthouse foster care makes it possible. After all, the heart of Lighthouse is love. Maria Bonds is a Lighthouse foster parent. She lives in Finneytown.

CH@TROOM This week’s question Should applicants suspected of illicit drug use pay for and pass a drug test before receiving welfare benefits?

“Yes, this is a great idea. If they are tested positive, they should then be required to enter a substance abuse program to help them to escape their addiction. “That is a lot more compassionate than what we are doing today, which is enabling their bad habit and all the problems that it causes in their lives, the lives of their loved ones, and in society. “Crime would plummet, since a lot of it is done by people with drug and alcohol problems. Alcohol should also be part of this program.” T.H. “All applicants for welfare benefits, not just those 'suspected' of illicit drug use should be tested. Otherwise the state could be accused of profiling or discrimination. “Most employers today use drug screening of all potential employees. A person applying for welfare is essentially asking for a paycheck from the taxpayers. We, as employers, have a right to deny payment to any person whom we feel is undeserving, or may misuse the funds we provide.” R.W.J.

A publication of

“Such people should absolutely have to pass a drug test before receiving benefits. However, I would concede that the welfare organization should finance the cost of the test. Common sense.” Bill B. “Anyone receiving any type of welfare should have to pass a drug test.” L.A.D.B. “No it has already been declared unconstitutional. It is very expensive and not cost effective. “In states that have tried this the percentage of drug use was no higher than in the typical population and since addiction is considered a disease would the state then have to provide treatment. This is just another Republican stereotype.” K.S. “A BIG FAT YES.”


“Applicants for almost any kind of job are expected to submit to a drug test, so why not for the job of being on the public dole? Why should we pay to feed someone's drug habit? 'Suspected’ is a sticky word, prone to interpretation. Test everyone who applies and retest periodically.” F.S.D. “I like the general concept, but

in our litigious society what lowpaid civil servant is going to accuse a person of being a drug-user when that person has unlimited free legal help waiting with bated breath to sue the deeppocket government?” R.V. “Consider that welfare recipients, by definition, are short on money. Unless someone, presumably someone with know how and authority, has reason to consider the recipient is cheating (using the money received in an illicit manner) the suggestion comes across as mean spirited and unnecessary. “Those tests are expensive. If you suspect someone is cheating the system, check it out. If you find you are right, throw the book at them. Leave the ones who need the help alone. Better yet, help them solve their problems.” F.N.

Try spice rub on fish tacos I can’t tell you how many recipes I’ve had over the years for fish tacos. Some were comRita plicated, Heikenfeld some were RITA’S KITCHEN easy and most were pretty good since I have always used a homemade spice rub. Today I was in a time crunch so I used a Southwestern blend from Colonel De Gourmet Herbs & Spices at Findlay Market instead of making my own rub. It was so good that I decided to leave the fish whole and serve it as an entree instead of as a taco. The time saved from making my own rub was happily spent in the garden, pulling weeds from the rows of Swiss chard and red onions.

Master recipe for Tex-Mex fish and tacos Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Fish 2 pounds firm white fish (I used halibut) Olive oil Southwestern seasoning

Brush fish on both sides with olive oil. Sprinkle on both sides with seasoning. Roast 8-10 minutes depending upon thickness of fish, until it flakes with a fork. Don’t overcook. While fish is roasting, make sauce. To serve fish as an entree: Leave whole and serve sauce alongside or drizzled on top. I served mine with a side of potatoes. To make tacos:

cheese with drained, crushed pineapple. You can also simply stir strawberry jam into softened cream cheese. Butter 1½ cups brown-bread flour (see note) 1 teaspoon baking soda ½ teaspoon salt 1 ⁄3 cup dark molasses 1 cup whole milk ½ cup raisins, currants, dried cherries, cranberries, apricots or your favorite dried fruit

Rita's recipe for Southwestern-seasoned fish can be used by itself or as a component in fish tacos. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

1 small head Napa cabbage, shredded or favorite greens, shredded

Break cooked fish into pieces and divide among tortillas. Top with cabbage and taco sauce. Serve with avocado wedges. Cathy’s cilantro scallion creamy sauce Cathy, an Eastern Hills Journal reader, gave me this recipe after I finished teaching a class on easy seafood entrees. “This is delicious on top of fish tacos,” she said. I used cilantro from the herb garden. You can also top the tacos with salsa, guacamole or pico de gallo sauce, if you want. Stir together: ¼ cup thinly sliced scallions/green onions Chopped cilantro to taste: start with 1⁄3 cup 3 tablespoons each sour cream and mayonnaise Grated rind from 1 lime Lime juice to taste: start with a scant 2 teaspoons

and go from there 1 nice-sized clove garlic, minced Salt and pepper to taste Diced tomatoes (optional) Avocado slices to serve alongside (optional)

Boston brown bread I hope this is close to what Northern Kentucky reader John Meier is looking for. It’s adapted from a recipe by Jasper White, the famous New England cook. John loved Busken Bakery’s brown bread served in their downtown location. John enjoyed it with cream cheese and strawberries. Cooks Illustrated also has a wonderful recipe for Boston brown bread, which is a bit too long to include here. Check out their site for the recipe. To make strawberry (or pineapple) cream cheese, mix softened cream cheese with fresh diced strawberries and sweeten with confectioners sugar, or blend softened cream

8 tortillas (corn or flour), warmed

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Generously butter a 1-pound coffee can. Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in molasses and milk. Fold in fruit. Fill coffee can with batter. It should come up only about two-thirds of the way. Cover top with foil and tie with string to make airtight. Place in a deep baking pan, put pan in oven and fill pan with boiling water halfway up the side of coffee can. Steam for two hours, checking water level after one hour. Add more boiling water if needed. Check by sticking a skewer into the bread; it will come out clean when done. Remove string and foil and allow to cool one hour before unmolding.

Move, play and laugh for fitness Most of us cringe when we hear a report on the need to get more exercise. Pledges to get in shape made on New Year’s Day are long forgotten by Groundhog Day. For many, the forecast is always the same: Six more weeks of procrastination. Although physical fitness is important to the health and well-being of people of all ages, it’s especially important for seniors. In a world that loves to reduce everything to simple, easy-to-follow steps, here is a simple plan for getting started: Play, move, laugh. » Play: “Never Too Old to Play” was selected as this year’s theme for Older American’s Month as an important reminder to seniors of the physical and emotional benefits of play. Whether engaged in a spirited game of bridge at a CSS activity center, a board game at home with a young person or working a challenging puzzle alone, play makes good things happen. Play helps seniors keep mobile, retain muscle mass and improve thinking skills. » Move: Did you know the aging process can be slowed with daily motion? That’s what research says. Movement can be as challenging as a game of chair volleyball, or as simple as changing TV stations without the remote. For those with limited mobility, activities can be as simple as

squeezing a ball, changing sitting positions, or tapLinda ping Eppler your toe COMMUNITY PRESS to a faGUEST COLUMNIST vorite tune. If you use a wheelchair, a few repetitions of rolling back and forward a few feet can be beneficial. Even laughter can help. The key is simple - keep moving. » Laugh: Most of us are familiar with the adage that laughter is the best medicine, but few understand the medical science that backs it up. Lastly, it triggers the release of endorphins, nature’s extraordinary, feel-good chemical that can temporarily relieve pain. Since a good, hearty laugh can cause us to jiggle all over – it’s a form of stationary jogging. It contributes to our overall fitness. The great thing about this plan is you will get some benefit at any level of participation. Check with your healthcare provider before getting started. He or she may have some good activities to suggest as well. The important thing is just getting started. Which is why I kept it simple.

Linda Eppler is director of Community Services for Clermont Senior Services.

Old Fisherman busy in workshop


little early to be stocking up the freezers for winter, but we have the garden items to George use and Rooks stock up OLE FISHERMAN for winter. The pie she made was sure good. We had pie for a while. By golly, that gal can sure make some fine eating. For dinner the menu was deer steak, baked taters, lettuce/ spinach salad, pie and coffee. The cabbage we planted St. Patrick’s Day is starting to make heads. There will be a couple heads to take to the Clermont County Fair this year along with other produce. Friday, May 18, the Bethel Lions Club gave the fifth graders at the Hill Elementary School in Bethel small trees about 18 inches tall. There were 150 students that got the trees and some chaperones.

Lions Club and the school was done by Lion Terri. Thanks to all the Lions Club members. I finally got to mow the 10 acres of grass for Ruth Ann’s cousins. With all the rain, the ground was so wet. Now with the one inch and eight tenths we got on Monday evening, the horse pasture will have to wait for a while. I wrote about buying a new ice cream maker. We have used it a couple times and it sure does the job. We had some friends here last week so we got the ice cream maker out and put it in use. We made a gallon of black raspberry ice cream. It was sure good. The folks that were here sure seemed to enjoy the big bowl they each got. I asked if seconds were in order, they said no, but Ruth Ann and I said yes to another bowl. While writing about the ice cream, the Monroe Grange will have their ice cream social at the Grange Hall at Nicholsville July 14, from 5 till 7 p.m. and will have sandwiches and pie and cake also available and it is open to the public.

The folks told us there has been the biggest bunch of pickers there this year so the berries will be running out. On the way back, we stopped at the Grants Farm and got a flat of strawberry plants. Our bed of strawberries have not done very good, so we planted another bed. I tilled the ground real good, then made ridges, put down plastic and made a hole in the black plastic to set the plant in the ground. After getting the plants put down, I watered them real good. Then the Good Lord watered them real good that evening. Hope next year to have a good harvest. The other bed was in a wet area due to all the rain we have had. I didn’t have it drained real good. So much for my mistake. This new bed will drain better. Start your week by going to the house of worship of your choice and praise the Good Lord. More later. God bless.

mark it on your calendar, even though this is early. This ice cream is all homemade, not bought from the store. Each Grange family will make a gallon or two. There will be a gallon of pineapple, along with other flavors. One feller from West Union likes the pineapple so we make a gallon. Now he will eat several bowls and say, “that is the best I have ever eaten.” Then at the ice cream social at Louisville Grange in Adams County, he always says, “that is the best I have ever eaten” so it makes a person think he likes pineapple, wouldn’t you think? This past Saturday evening, the Bethel High School Alumni was held. There was a big crowd. There was a feller, John Donaldson there from California. He enjoys the alumni and always tells me how he enjoys the Ole Fisherman column. He was at the Bethel United Methodist Church Sunday morning. We went to the A&M Orchard Monday to pick strawberries. There were lots of folks there picking.


Howdy folks, We have been busy in the carpenter shop repairing kitchen chairs, doing some weed eating and we visited a nursing home. On the way home from the nursing home, we decided to stop in Newtonsville at the Gathering Place (restaurant) and have a sandwich. It was a big one and good. This restaurant is small, but the service is good. The folks try to please their customers. My brother Frank always liked to eat there. For a town as small as Newtonsville, there is a grocery store, a hardware store, a post office and the Gathering Place. When you look at towns so small, Newtonsville sure stands up front for service to the public. Oh, I almost forgot they have an antique store. In the barn on the place where Ruth Ann and her folks used to live. When we got home from this trip, Ruth Ann said we need to pick some rhubarb. It is some of the best we have had for some time. Some of it went into a rhubarb pie and some went into the freezer for winter. This may sound a
