BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
Miami Twp. OKs raises for non-bargaining personnel
County to bid paving work with city, twps.
By John Seney
MIAMI TWP. — The township trustees awarded 2-percent pay raises for this year to employees not part of collective bargaining groups. The raises are retroactive to the first pay period of 2012. There are 32 township employees not part of the police or firefighter collective bargaining groups, Administrator Larry
Fronk said. They include service, recreation and office workers. Fronk said when the 2012 township budget was approved in Fronk December 2011, a decision on compensation for the non-bargaining employees had not been reached. “We were waiting to see what
2012 brought as far as revenues and expenses,” he said. Fronk said so far this year revenues have been steady and expenses have been down. “We have been doing a good job of controlling expenses,” he said. Fronk said the total cost of the 2 percent raise for 2012 will be $34,000. “This represents only .03 percent of the total 2012 payroll budget and will have a minimal im-
pact on the 2012 budget,” he said. “During a period when vacancies are not being filled and employees are given additional responsibilities, these employees should be recognized for their hard work,” Fronk said. Trustee Karl Schultz said it was a matter of fairness. “The bargaining units are getting pretty decent wages. We just felt it was necessary to give our non-bargaining folks something,” Schultz said.
RECOGNIZED FOR SERVICE

U.S. marshals arrest man wanted for rape By John Seney email@example.com
MILFORD — A 49-year-old man suspected in the rape of a 14-yearold girl was arrested June 21 in Springfield, Ohio, by U.S. marshals. Milford Police had been looking for William Todd Schleehauf in connection to the May 1 incident in the city, said Police Chief
Jamey Mills. Mills said charges of rape, kidnapping, burglary and domestic violence were filed against Schleehauf as a Schleehauf result of the May1 incident. Schleehauf also was wanted on charges of a parole violation
and failure to register as a sex offender. Mills said no permanent address was listed for Schleehauf and he was believed to be homeless. Milford investigators developed leads that Schleehauf may be in the Springfield area and requested assistance from the U.S. Marshals Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Team, Mills said.

By John Seney BATAVIA — The Clermont County officials will join with eight townships and the city of Milford to save money on repaving roads. The Clermont County commissioners June 25 approved agreements with seven townships and Milford to jointly bid the 2012 road resurfacing contract. An agreement with Jackson Township was approved earlier this year. Doug Royer, deputy engineer with the Clermont County Engineer’s Office, said the county will seek one bid for the repaving work of the county, the townships and Milford. The cost estimate for all the work is about $3.1 million, he Humphrey said. Royer said the repaving of county-maintained roads will cost about $1.5 million, with the rest of the cost being shared by the other governments. Commissioner Ed Humphrey said the plan should result in savings for all the governments. “It’s less expensive for the contractor, so he can afford to give a lower price,” Humphrey said. “This benefits the county, the townships, everyone,” he said. The commissioners passed a separate resolution to advertise for the repaving bids, with bid opening set for 2 p.m. Thursday, July 12, at the commissioners office, 101 E. Main St. in Batavia. The deadline for the completion of the work is Nov. 16. The participating governments, estimated cost and the streets to be repaved are: » Batavia Township, $270,000: Mallard Drive, Pochard Drive, Muscovy Lane, Canvasback Circle, Apple Road, Short Apple, Meadowwood Drive, Meadowlark Lane, Foxdale Court, Treeline Court and Tanbark Court. » Goshen Township, $100,000: Entrance Drive,

MILFORD — Enter the Harry Hodges Room in the Milford Municipal Building and you find the walls alive with a collection of watercolors by Miami Township resident and artist Bobbi Thies. The themes in this collection are recognizable to most area residents, with subjects including various architectural buildings and historical locations in the greater Milford area. “The Harry Hodges Room is like many city meeting rooms with its monochromatic walls, flooring and furnishings,” said Jeff Wright, Milford city manager. “After seeing Bobbi’s work at the local Art Affaire, we ap-
proached her about featuring a display here at the city. We’re delighted to host this collection; and, we enjoy sharing it with everyone who uses the Harry Hodges Room for meetings - from our own internal staff to council to local organizations.” The nine-piece exhibit features 20 Brix; Bishop’s Bicycles; Gatch Farm; Meyer Shoe Repair; Milford Cleaners; Padrino; Stegbauer Farm; and a quaint yellow cottage located at the corner of Polk and Locust Streets. “Art is a way of life for me, having been encouraged from a very early age to explore my creative muse,” said Thies. “Architecture is particularly intriguing and I will often visit a setting through vari-

A watercolor of 20 Brix in Milford is among a collection of paintings by Bobbi Thies of Miami Township at the Milford Municipal Building. THANKS TO BOBBI THIES ous weather conditions and time of day to see how light transforms the composition into something magical. I primarily paint en plein air to seize the mystical mood of the scene.” “Each piece in this particular collection has a tie to the Milford community,” Thies said. “When I paint subjects with rich historical backgrounds, it’s very gratifying when the art makes a familiar connection with the viewer. And even more rewarding if the art awakens fond memories and establishes what I call a ‘heart link’ with the painting. It’s fun to watch.”

The painting of 20 Brix is one that shows history revitalized. The original structure was built in 1848 and served as a grocery store, a bank, and more recently, a barber shop. The building suffered a fire in December 2004, and it was then reconstructed (in 2007) by Dale Roe, a Milford resident and businessman. “I visited the Main Street 20 Brix building at various times over many months,” said Thies. “The time of year, the time of day, the weather - all of these elements played a part in how the light reflected off the structure. Finally, I was captivated by the building as it stood in a gentle rain shower that created colorful, glistening reflections in the streets. I don’t always have the patience to wait for just that unique moment in time; however, with this painting, it was worth the wait.”
The collection is on loan to the city of Milford, 745 Center St. The public is invited to visit the exhibit by contacting Sharon Waldmann, administrative secretary, at 831-4192, or via email to email@example.com. Thies is a teacher by profession and an avid volunteer at heart. In addition to painting, she also creates sculptural art from found objects; and, she works with fiber - designing and creating one-of-akind Scandinavian Rya rugs. Thies has been represented by Row House Gallery & Custom Framing, 211 Main St. in Milford, for more than 30 years. In addition, she sells her works at local art shows and private exhibits; and, through personal contact. Thies also accepts commissions in painting, sculptural art, and Rya rugs.

Hunsberger honored by Archdiocese
By Emily Maddern
OWENSVILLE — St. Louis Elementary School Principal Peg Hunsberger was presented the Christ the Teacher Award by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati during its annual principals’ luncheon in recognition of her Christian leadership with both the school and the community. “I was quite shocked when they called my name. I just sat there for a few minutes trying to take it all in,” Hunsberger said. “It was a beautiful thing to be honored in that way.” Hunsberger has served as the school’s principal for the past 10
years and has 18 years of experience working within the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. The Archdiocese presented six awards during Hunsberger this year’s luncheon designed to recognize outstanding principals, said Superintendent Jim Rigg. “The Christ the Teacher Award recognizes the principal or principals who exemplify Christian service in the community. People who are not just excellent school administrators, but who demonstrate true Chris-
tian service to the community and help personify the values of our Catholic schools,” he said. “Peg is a phenomenal educator who truly exemplifies the traits of a Catholic education,” Rigg said. “She really stood out in our minds and is very worthy of this type of recognition.” Rigg said he plans to offer the award annually. The school’s pastor, the Rev. Father Jerry Hiland, said it has been Hunsberger’s hard work and energy that has made the school what it is today. Hiland said Hunsberger has worked closely with the parish and with himself to help when and wherever needed, leads the students in
prayer services each morning and can often be found teaching in the classroom when a teacher is out sick. “She’s a genuinely Christian woman and you can see that in everything she does. She’s a true role model for the other teachers and for the children,” Hiland said. The school re-presented Hunsberger with her award during the students’ annual awards ceremony May 31. Hunsberger said she was surprised to be represented with the award in front of the students and she feels very blessed to have such a supportive community behind her. “St. Louis is just a wonderful
community,” she said. “From the moment I started here, I just felt very welcomed and embraced. The people here were just so open to me coming, and I had a wonderful sense of being a part of an amazing community and that has stayed with me all these years.” Hunsberger said she is very grateful to the Archdiocese for recognizing her, but she would not have been able to succeed without the help and support of the St. Louis school and parish. “I feel very humbled and amazed to have received this award, and I pray that I will be deserving of it and with the help of God I’ll work really hard to try to be,” she said.”

Hermann’s closes after 90 years
In spring 1922, Charles and Dora Hermann opened Hermann’s Plants, 435 Main St. in Milford. They raised vegetables for Findlay Market while making their home on the property. Dora loved flowers, so Charles added hot beds. They were very successful with the vegetables and Dora’s flowers were known as being large and beautiful. One day, a friend asked if Dora could make an arrangement for a service at Craver Funeral Home and that is how the flower shop began. Charles smoked and for every pack, Dora saved a nickel in a jar and built a greenhouse so they could grow flowers all year. The business name was changed to Hermann’s Greenhouse. Doors were left unlocked in those days. People would stop, take a plant or flower, leave a note and stop back to pay. In 1936, Charles died at age 46. Family members helped Dora with the business. Bessie, her husband Omar Leming and their children, Lucille and Robert, moved in with Dora after they lost their home
This Model A sat outside Hermann's Florist for many years. PROVIDED and belongings in the 1937 flood. Dora and Bessie were sisters. The business was doing well with Dora selling vegetables to Findlay Market and buying flowers from wholesalers for arrangements. Omar regained his job at Union Terminal working as a nighttime railroad timekeeper. Union Terminal was near the wholesale flower markets. If Dora needed flowers, Omar would bring them home and Bessie would help during the day. The family helped when they could. Dora had no children and depended on Bessie’s children. When Lucille and Robert
started their own families, they became involved in daily operations. Robert and Rita Leming had two children, Pam and Dave. Lucille and Forrest Bainum had two children, Lucille and Diana. In the 1950s, during holidays, adults worked and children ran errands. The children would walk funeral arrangements to Craver Funeral Home and Milford Methodist Church, stopping by Langdon’s Grocery for penny candy and bubblegum. In 1959, when the Little Miami flooded, the greenhouse was full of Easter lilies and other holiday plants. The children were called from Milford Main School to help
and the family formed a chain rescuing plants from the greenhouse. In 1960, Dora died, leaving Bessie and Omar the business. Lucille and Forrest Bainum’s daughter Lucille Bainum Wamsley’s was now working parttime. In 1962, her son-in-law Forrest Bainum, after working 24 years for LeBlonde Machine Tool Co., began working for her. In 1964, Forrest and Lucille purchased the business. Bessie retired and became the first resident of Sem Villa I Retirement Home in Milford. At the time, Lucille was employed at Milford High School as a secretary. She would help after hours and weekends. In 1965, Forrest and Lucille’s other daughter, Diana Craig, began working part-time. The family worked with many wonderful, dedicated, hard-working employees who were considered friends. In 1981, Forrest retired. Lucille and Diana took over. The greenhouse was not profitable because of fuel costs and it was demolished. The business was renamed Hermann’s Florist, Inc. They decided to buy a 1930 Model
A rumble, a whoosh, then Timothy was gone
After son’s death in Nepal, ‘sea of tears,’ then solace in faith By John Johnston Gannett News Service
MIAMI TWP. — A small group of hikers stood in the early morning darkness, listening and wondering. What’s that rumbling sound? Nobody knew. On Friday, June 22, Trevor Stansbury, 43, and his sons, Timothy, 13, and Jonathan, 12, were on the last leg of what had been an exhilarating eight-day guided hike through the Himalayan region of Nepal in South Asia. Along the way they’d seen many pack horses; maybe the sound was galloping hooves, Trevor thought. Suddenly Trevor heard a loud whoosh, what sounded to him like a meteorite streaking to earth, and a whack, like a baseball bat hitting a punching bag. Then the awful realization: Timothy, who had been right beside him, was gone, killed instantly by a rolling boulder. “I’ve cried a sea of tears,” the father of four said Monday evening, one day after he and Jonathan returned to their Clermont County home. “The reservoirs are just empty.” With his wife, Becky, 40, seated beside him, and their other children, Hannah, 9, and Rachel, 6, in another room, he said he won’t allow himself to dwell on questions that begin, “What if?” What if the hikers hadn’t stopped on the trail to take off their jackets? What if they had started a few minutes later? What if they hadn’t made the trip at all? “ ‘What if’ is an expression of fear and doubt,” Trevor said. “We don’t live our lives in fear. We live our lives in faith.” The Stansburys moved to Cincinnati from Arizona 11 years ago to launch a software business. Five years later, Trevor began climbing mountains in Colorado. As his boys grew older, he introduced them to the pastime, which they immediately loved. Last year, the boys reached a 14,000-foot summit for the first time. The trip to the Himalayas had been in the works for more than a
year. It “seemed like a really neat thing to share with the boys,” Trevor said. Becky agreed. The timing seemed perfect: Timothy had just completed eighth grade at Loveland Middle School. Better to do it before high school, they felt, when he’d be busier than ever. They signed on with Himalayan Glacier Trekking, a 20-yearold Nepal-based company that specializes in adventure travel. The company did not respond to messages left on Tuesday. The plan, at first, was to hike primarily in Tibet, but visa problems forced an itinerary change, Trevor said. The focus became the Annapurna Conservation Area, a region in north-central Nepal with numerous peaks above 20,000 feet. It’s been called the “holy grail of trekking” by Backpacker magazine.
Excruciating pain tempered by faith
Timothy was standing between his father and brother. The boulder threw his body 30 feet. “When I got to Timothy, there was no question he had been killed instantly,” his father said.

Beautiful mountain vistas awaited hikers
The goal was not to climb a mountain. Rather, their trek took them on trails flanked by snowy mountains and glaciers. Hiking five to seven hours a day, they gradually ascended to an elevation of 15,000 feet. By the eighth day, three of nine hikers had dropped out, exhausted, Trevor said. Of the remaining six, two opted to ride horses. Trevor said he and his boys had no qualms about continuing on foot. “We were just having fun the whole way,” he said. “It was the best father-son trip we had ever had.” Ahead lay Thorung La, a pass 17,768 feet above sea level. Their guide recommended they leave their camp, Thorung Phedi, in predawn darkness to avoid the high winds that whip the pass during the noon hour. They rose at 2:30 a.m. At 3, as they were about to depart, Trevor snapped the last of hundreds of photos. Wearing head lanterns and down jackets, the hikers within 20 minutes became too warm. The group stopped to peel off a layer. Then the rumbling started.
A Ford truck for advertisement. Their husbands thought they were crazy. They drove the Model A in Frontier Days Parades, won first place in the Reds Opening Day Parade and made flower deliveries. The men loved the old Model A. It was parked on the sidewalk next to the building and became a conversation piece promoting Hermann’s Florist. When somebody complained, the story made the front page of the Milford Advertiser. The city made them remove the car. Lucille worked 52 years and Diana worked 46 years together with family and friends. Their children have their own careers and some have moved away. It is time for a change. This small business provided for five generations of families and helped sustain many through the Great Depression, floods and tough times. To the many loyal customers and friends, we say “thank you.” Without you, we could not have been successful. We will miss you. God Bless.

Still, “I must have checked his pulse and his breath 150 times.” A gynecologist and a medical student were among the hikers. He repeatedly asked them if they, too, were sure his son was gone. “When it happened,” Trevor said, “in spite of the most excruciating (emotional) pain I have ever experienced, there also came a certain knowledge that Timothy was OK. I don’t know how to explain that, except to say that we have built our marriage and our
family on a foundation of faith in Jesus Christ. “For reasons that we cannot explain, the time had come for Timothy to return to the father of us all.” The Stansburys are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, better known as the Mormons. They attend the Little Miami congregation in Montgomery. Becky was at church, helping with the youth group, when the call came from her husband at about 7:30 p.m. Friday. “Trevor kept saying, ‘I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I’m sorry I can’t bring him home. I couldn’t protect him.” She told her husband: “You have nothing to be sorry about. It’s not your fault.”

GOSHEN — Goshen High School sophomore Kyle Decker is having one of those summer seasons that raise eyebrows and put him on the radar for the future. He is hitting .471 with a .577 on-base percentage for the E.O.C AA 16-to 18-year-old team out of Goshen. “(Kyle is) dedicated, focused and a hard-worker, always striving to improve his skill,” summer coach Nate Decker said. He is a well-rounded player as he pitches, plays shortstop and third base for E.O.C and started at second base for the Warriors’ high school team for the final few games of the season as a freshman. On the mound for E.O.C, Decker has tossed 34 innings, struck out 25 and allowed just 10 hits on the season while posting a 0.91 ERA. “Nothing is different in his routine,” his coach said. “I just think his size is finally catching up to his talents and baseball abilities.” This is Decker’s 10th season playing baseball. It is the only sport he plays, and he has led his team in every hitting category in eight of the 10 seasons, according to his coach. The sophomore spent the majority of his freshman season on the junior varsity squad for Goshen, but was called up late and started the final seven games for the Warriors and hit .385. “He did exceptionally well for us,” Goshen coach Mark Reed said. “He did excellent especially for how young he is.” When Reed saw him before the season he could see the talents that he possessed, but it is never easy for a freshman to start for the varsity squad.
Milford High School and Ohio State graduate Elliott Keefer swan a personal best at the Olympic trials June 29, but did not qualify for the Olympics after a fifth-place finish in the 200 meter breaststroke and a 14th-place finish in the 100 breast in the semifinals. THANKS TO PETER E. CARNEY Goshen High School senior Kyle Decker prepares at the plate during a summer league game for the E.O.C AA 16- to 18-year-old team. On the season, he is hitting .471 and has an on-base percentage of .577 for E.O.C. THANKS TO NATE DECKER
“He is very fundamentally sound,” Reed said. “Whenever you see a freshman, you expect them to be a little bit raw. He is one of those kids you knew he knew what he was doing. He is very mature for his age and we knew mentally he would be able to handle the change from junior varsity to varsity, which is a very big step.” One of the biggest attributes Decker showed Reed was his ability to play second base along side a sophomore shortstop the last few games of the regular season and in the postseason. “(He was) very good,” the Warrior coach said. “For a young kid like that to step up and start in a tournament game speaks highly as to how much we like having him on the team and in this program. “Kyle has grown into a team leader and lives for the sport he loves.”

Keefer sets personal best, just misses Olympics By Tom Skeen firstname.lastname@example.org
MILFORD — Milford High School graduate Elliott Keefer just missed qualifying for the Olympics in the 200-meter breaststroke after a fifth-place finish in the finals even though he swam a personal best, 2:11.10. Going into the event, Keefer knew what he was capable of doing in the race but wasn’t able to match the 2:09.01 time set by Scott Weltz. “I am definitely looking for the (win),” he said before the event. “I have put forward everything trying to win the event this year. The top two qualify for the Olympics, but I am definitely going for the win.” Keefer got to the final after recording a previous personal best time of 2:11.90 in the preliminary heat to move on to the
semifinals. He bested that time in the semis swimming the 200 meter in 2:11.27 to finish second. “We have been putting in eight or nine practices a week,” he said. “Really, I just have been putting all my effort into this. I changed coaches and programs to maximize my potential to be a professional. Plus, there is no school which is big because it frees up a lot of time to practice and focus on the task at hand.” Keefer is a 2011 graduate of Ohio State University where he walked on to the swim team as a freshman. He credits the reason for much of his success as a Buckeye and since to his former OSU coach Bill Wadley. “I walked on to the swim team, so I was an average state swimmer and pretty much a onetrick pony,” Keefer said. “I got up to OSU and coach Wadley really molded me into a short-
course and long-course swimmer. From there it just started taking off. I kind of grew up physically and mentally. Mentally I always thought I could be a big-time swimmer, but physically is where I had to grow. I love OSU and it was really just an awesome experience.” Keefer also swam at the Olympic trials in the 100-meter breaststroke but did not make it to the finals after a 14th-place finish in the semifinals. Back at Ohio State, Keefer was a Big Ten champion in the 100 breast his junior year and earned six all-American honors, but that wasn’t his best memory while at OSU. “We beat Michigan in 2010 to win the Big Ten title,” Keefer said about his fondest memory of being a Buckeye. “We came out of nowhere and beat them by 120 (points).”

LETTER TO THE EDITOR My neighbor came across an absolutely unacceptable situation today in downtown Milford. The temperature this afternoon was over 100 degrees and some stupid idiot left her dog in the car with the windows cracked. On a day like today, the inside temperature of the car skyrockets to 115 to 120 degrees within minutes even with the windows cracked. Cell damage occurs when the body’s temperature reaches 107 degrees. The dog was in the car for 45 minutes. Even more alarming was that the car was unlocked, but the police officer would not let anyone open the car door to get the dog out. While charges should and could have been pressed, it appeared that the officer did neither. He spoke to the woman for a few minutes and then let her go. As long as the police continue to look the other way, dogs are going to die needlessly. Please spread the word that even a “couple of minutes” in a hot car can kill a pet or a child.

Benefit process for vets improved The Social Security Administration and the Department of Defense are working to improve access to disability benefits for the nation’s Wounded Warriors, service members, veterans and their dependents. A new nationwide project enables Social Security disability case processing sites to receive military medical records from multiple DoD facilities with a single request to a centralized DoD site. This initiative is in its first phase of nationwide expansion. “Receiving electronic medical records for our Wounded Warriors and other military personnel will significantly shorten the time it takes to make a disability decision,” said Michael J. Astrue, commissioner of Social Security. “This new process will improve the speed, accuracy and efficiency of the disability program.” Originally a pilot, the program included five states (Colorado, North Carolina, Oregon, Virginia and Washington) and more than 60 military treatment facilities. These states are now receiving electronic medical records within 72
hours, a remarkable improvement over the previous average response time of five weeks for paper records from Sue Denny COMMUNITY PRESS individual military treatGUEST COLUMNIST ment facilities. The new DoD-Social Security collaboration consolidates requests for medical records from Social Security to a single location that has access to DoD records in a central electronic repository. This central location receives and responds to requests for medical records based on Social Security’s Electronic Records Express (www.socialsecurity.gov/ere), another successful initiative that offers electronic options for submitting health records related to disability claims. More information on Social Security’s use of health IT is available at www.socialsecurity.gov/hit.

A publication of
VA offeres expanded mental health services U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Secretary Eric Shinseki often reminds us: As the tide of war recedes we have the opportunity, and the responsibility, to anticipate the needs of returning veterans. As these newest veterans return home, we must ensure they have access to quality mental health care to successfully make this transition to civilian life. Last year, VA provided specialty mental health services to more than 1.3 million veterans - a 35 percent increase since 2007. That’s why it was recently announced that VA will add an additional 1,600 mental health staff professionals and an additional 300 support staff members nationwide. The Cincinnati Veterans Affairs Medical Center had already increased its staffing to meet the current demand so we received two new positions to enhance services. These efforts to hire more mental health professionals build on our record of service. President Barack Obama, Shinseki and the CVAMC leadership have devoted more people, programs and resources to veteran mental health services. VA has increased the
mental health care budget by 39 percent since 2009. What’s more, we’ve increased the number of mental health Linda Smith COMMUNITY PRESS staff members by 41 percent GUEST COLUMNIST since 2007. That means today, we have a team of professionals that’s 20,590 strong - all dedicated to providing much-needed direct mental health treatment. While we have made great strides to expand mental health care access, we have more work to do. The men and women who have had multiple deployments over a decade of combat have carried a tremendous burden for our country. That’s why Shinseki has challenged the department to improve upon our progress and identify barriers that prevent veterans from receiving timely treatment. As we meet with veterans in Cincinnati, we learn firsthand what we need to do to improve access. Shinseki has sought out the hardest-to-reach, most underserved places - from the remote areas of Alaska to inner
city Philadelphia - to hear directly from veterans and employees. And we’re taking action to reach out to those who need mental health care instead of waiting for them to come to us. Our mission is to increase access to our care and services. We’ve greatly increased the number of Veterans Readjustment Counseling Centers (Vet Centers) throughout the country. We’ve developed an extensive suicide prevention program that saves lives every day. For example, our team at the Veteran Crisis Line has fielded more than 600,000 calls from veterans and helped more than 21,000 veterans in immediate crisis. The mental health of America’s veterans not only touches those of us at VA and the Department of Defense, but also families, friends, co-workers and people in our communities. We ask that you urge veterans in your communities to reach out and connect with VA services. To locate the nearest VA facility or Vet Center for enrollment and to get scheduled for care, visit www.va.gov.

Is there hope for America? The Fourth of July - America’s birthday - is for most of us a time for baseball, hotdogs and fireworks. Seldom do we take the time to reflect upon the Declaration of Independence. The remarkable thing about the Declaration is that it represents the first time a people created a nation based upon liberty and representative democracy. Our first attempt at establishing a government that would secure the freedom of the individual failed. That government, under Articles of Confederation, failed because it lacked the “energy” to perform its basic functions. The delegates to the Constitutional Convention needed to find a balance between freedom and order that would ultimately protect the individual from an intrusive government. The answer was “limited government;” the principles of which are embedded in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Big government was a constant worry for the founders. Not surprisingly, Thomas Jefferson spoke eloquently upon the topic. He said: “When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.” “I think we have more ma-
chinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious.” Gary Knepp “Freedom is COMMUNITY PRESS lost gradually GUEST COLUMNIST from an uninterested, uninformed, and uninvolved people.” James Madison, known as the Father of the Constitution, also was worried about a gradual loss of freedom, stating: “There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.” A generation later Frenchman Alexis de Tocqueville, after traveling through the United States, wrote about American democracy. Like Jefferson and Madison, he doubted that a violent despotism could succeed in America. De Tocqueville feared a “soft tyranny” that comes with the administrative state. In his view the administrative state, wants to keep its citizens in a condition of “perpetual childhood” by becoming the parent, supplying
“their necessities, facilitates, their pleasures.” Once established, the administrative state issues rules that cover “the surface of society” The “will of man is not shattered but softened, bent and guided.” Over time freedom is lost. The citizens are reduced to nothing more “than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which government is the shepherd.” What would these three men say about the status of the American Administrative State? Would they protest against armed agents who stormed farmers’ barns looking for raw milk? Would they call for demonstrations after a local government seized a person’s home and gave it to a developer in the name of more taxes? Would they speak out when a health department bans sugary soft drinks, movie popcorn or milkshakes? I think they would because they knew that each time something like this happens we are a little less free. Fortunately, according to a Gallup poll, 64 percent of Americans fear big government. Perhaps, there is still hope for the Republic. Patriots, keep your powder dry!

CH@TROOM June 27 question Are you concerned about your privacy now that the FAA has been ordered to give unmanned aircraft, or drones, greater access to civilian airspace by 2015? Why or why not?
“Assuming the concern would be that Big Brother government was intruding into citizen privacy with such flights, no,
I would not be concerned and here is why. I believe it was in the 1970s that the Supreme Court ruled it was unconstitutional for the police to search out marijuana growers by flying over private property to get evidence. Whether the aircraft is manned or unmanned that ruling should still protect us from government's prying eyes.” R.V.

Veterans receive medals in special ceremony By John Seney firstname.lastname@example.org
BATAVIA — Four Clermont County veterans were honored May 9 during a medals presentation. “One of the great things about being president of the Clermont County Veterans Service Commission is getting to honor fellow veterans for the sacrifices they have made and the medals they have earned,” said Bob Derr, president of the veterans service commission. The veterans who were honored: » Alfred E. Harmon of Milford, an Air Force veteran of World War II, received the European African Middle Eastern Campaign Medal with four bronze stars, the American Theater Ribbon and the Good Conduct Medal. “I’m a little surprised, but it’s a nice surprise,” Harmon said. Harmon, 93, said his daughter brought him to the ceremony but did not tell him what would happen. “This is a great occasion for me,” he said. “If not for the men and woman of your generation, this country would not be what it is today,”

Bixler said his time in the service was “a great experience.” » Ronald P. Pottorf of Batavia Township, a Marine Corps veteran of Vietnam, received the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal with Bronze Star and Vietnam Campaign Medal. “This is one of the first times since I came home from Vietnam that anyone said ‘thanks,’” he said.

Try Silverglade’s chicken salad
Annie Hoffman’s clone of Silverglade’s chicken salad For Judy S. I talked to the folks at Silverglade’s,
1 pound or so Italian sausage links (I used 8 oz. each mild and hot), grilled and sliced into coins* 1 pound rigatoni pasta, cooked 3 tablespoons olive oil 2 cloves of garlic, minced (2 teaspoons or so) 1 large red, yellow or orange bell pepper, or 2 medium, chopped or cut into strips 1 jar favorite pasta sauce (I used Kroger marinara) Fresh parsley, chopped Parmesan cheese
Grilled sausage rigatoni starts with store-bought pasta sauce. THANKS TO JUSTIN HAWTHORNE who said their recipe is proprietary, just as they had told me a few years ago when other readers wanted it. Annie Hoffman, a loyal reader, reminded me that she had cloned this recipe way back when and shared it with us. So here’s Annie’s recipe again, which hopefully will work for Judy. ½ cup whipping cream, whipped 1 cup real mayonnaise 2½ cups cooked chicken breast 1 cup celery, finely chopped 1 cup small seedless green or purple grapes 1 cup toasted walnuts, chopped 1 teaspoon minced fresh onion
1 teaspoon salt
Combine ingredients as follows: whip the cream and add the mayo, then add all the rest and chill for at least three hours. You can add your own spices, or hard boiled egg if you like – it is still as good!
Courtney Vonderhaar’s grilled sausage rigatoni If I get a taste of something really good, I just have to have the recipe. Here’s the story of this one. I was at son Jason’s house and Jess, his wife, was telling me about a spicy pasta dish her neighbor, Courtney, a Mount
Washington reader, brought over for them to sample. Luke, my 11 year old grandson, ate it so fast there was hardly a taste left. The dish starts with a store-bought pasta sauce, to which you add bell peppers, garlic and grilled Italian sausages. Jess fixed it when we came to dinner, and I was hooked. I made it on my Union Township cable show “Love Starts in the Kitchen.” Everyone came back for seconds. This is a nice dish to tote to someone who may be under the weather. (They also raved about the butter pecan cake which I shared with you recently and which I’ve adapted somewhat. It’s on my blog).
While pasta is cooking, sauté garlic in oil for 30 seconds, add pepper, cook until tender, add sauce and sausage, heat until hot or sausage is hot or cooked through. Serve over rigatoni and sprinkle with parsley. Pass plenty of Parmesan. Serves 4-5. » I’ve made this with bulk Italian sausage and simply sautéed it. Still delicious. I’ve also just grilled the sausages part way and finished cooking them in the skillet. Takes a bit longer to cook. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

who blames a lot of cost overruns on change-orders from Loges. He also says kitchen appliances were more expensive than budgeted. After I talked with him, the builder agreed to sign papers for the bank to release the remainder of the construction loan money to Loges so workers could be paid. A new Ohio law gives the state attorney general more authority to investigate builder complaints, but the best thing to do when buying a house is get your own lawyer at the same time you get a real estate agent. There’s a lot to buying an existing house, let alone building
one, and you need to have the expertise of a lawyer to guide and protect you. Howard Ain answers consum-

Loges says he’s learned a valuable lesson. “I didn’t put the proper legal protection in place … I would go beyond a real estate agent and go to a lawyer if I ever did another real estate transaction like this.” I contacted the builder

Consider hiring lawyer when building a house New home sales rose in May at the fastest pace in two years. Record low interest rates are driving more people into the housing market and prompting builders to start building again. But unless you’re careful, building a new house can be more costly than you ever imagined. Russ Loges learned that when looking for a house you need to get more than just a real estate agent. His experience in Liberty Township is one from which we can all learn. “We had hoped to move in within four months of the house building starting – so we had hoped to move in about a year ago,” Loges said. After signing the contract with a builder, Loges learned the first problem was ground could not be broken without a significant amount of engineering work due to the configuration of the lot. Next, Loges says he learned there were financial problems. “We were trying to save money and paint the house ourselves when I noticed a lot of subcontractors coming and going looking for payment … They came into the house looking for the builder,” Loges says. Eventually Loges was able to get money from the mortgage company to pay some of the contractors – and he had to pay others out of his own pocket. He now estimates the house has gone over budget by about $45,000. “This is my first housing-building experience. Basically, everything that could go wrong has gone wrong,” Loges said. Loges says there was so little money left on the construction loan he had to spend his own money for, among other things, kitchen cabinets, appliances and plumbing fix-
Norris Jewelers in Milford is taking a lead in raising awareness and funds to benefit injured service men and women. So far, $700,000 have been raised nationally by the From Soldier to Soldier bracelets, an awareness and fund-raising campaign in support of severely injured veterans and their families. Norris is participating. The campaign is based on the sales of a designer version of the survival and friendship bracelets worn by many U.S. and allied soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. The bracelets are handcrafted in the U.S. For every bracelet sold in Clermont County, $20 goes to Homes For Our Troops for building adaptive homes for severely injured U.S. veterans.

It was just last week that a reader told me the recipe I shared recently for Don Deimling’s “delicious salad dressing” has not only become a family favorite, but one that is requested by friends, as well. “It’s as good as School House Rita restauHeikenfeld rant’s,” she RITA’S KITCHEN said. I know the restaurant can’t share their recipe, which to my palate has a bit more onion, but they’re pretty close. I’m sharing this story because Don, who was one of our best friends, passed away this week. I can just imagine him now making his salad dressing, along with his awesome goetta, for the angels in heaven. I think they’re both destined to become favorites up there, too. (The dressing recipe is still on my blog at Cincinnati.com).

Friend likes ice cream while fishing Howdy folks, I am writing this article in the afternoon on Tuesday, we had an appointment with the surgeon this morning at 8:30 to check on the cancer Ruth Ann had removed. She had a chest X-ray a couple of weeks ago. The x-ray showed all clear. The surgeon said in another three months go have another MRI on the leg, and a chest scan. This checking will go on for two more years. The Good Lord is taking care of us. Isn’t it true that God is Good? After we got back, I went to mow 10 acres of yard for Ruth Ann’s cousins. It took four hours. Their yard is in great shape for the 4th of July holiday. Happy 4th to all of you. I almost forgot a very important birthday. This feller has done some fishing with me. He is a very dedicated Christian. He was a mail carrier and very devoted to his late wife and family. This feller had a very unusual thing he would do when he went fishing. He always carried a cooler. Now you usually put pop or water in it to keep cool. Well, this feller would put cups of home made ice cream in the cooler. After a time of fish-

This was wonderful, it is always good to see these folks. Chessy is an outside cat. In the morning when I open the kitchen door, she makes a dash for the house to get some breakfast. She doesn’t like to stay in the house. The garden is growing good. The raspberries are done. They didn’t produce as many as we had thought they were going to. Ruth Ann put five quarts in the freezer and made a batch of jelly. We have the cistern to use to water the garden. The rain seems to be sparse. The weather report said the folks in Florida are getting up to two feet of rain. WOW! Start your week by going to the house of worship of your choice and praise the Good Lord. God bless all. More later.

Fayetteville to see a lady that was to have some bee supplies. Our grandson Curtis and friend Tony went along. This lady is so special. On Father’s Day, the police and fire department honored her in the Fireman’s Parade. She is 82 years young. Tony was talking to her about her flowers and plants and she gave us a sprout from her cherry tree. We will plant it and the name will be “Mildred’s cherry tree.” Thanks, we love you. We enjoyed having Curtis with us for the day. We had barbecue and homemade french fries for lunch, with homemade ice cream for dessert. We have had two hatches of Bluebirds here that we know about. One was in a Bluebird box, the other in a Martin House. We sat on the back porch and watched the male and female feed the young ones and clean the droppings out of the nest. We were setting on the back porch and realized the birds have left the nest. We would have liked to see the babies fly. There are young Hummingbirds at the feeder and the Goldfinch young are eating the thistle seeds. They are exciting for

There is a great need yet for lots of folks. Sunday evening at the Bethel United Methodist Church we had a special evening when five new members joined and then had home made ice cream along with other treats and good music. What an evening. Since I am writing about homemade ice cream don’t forget the Monroe Grange Homemade Ice Cream Social on July 14 at the Grange Hall on Ohio 222 in Nicholsville, from 5 till 7 p.m. There will also be sandwiches, pie, cake, coffee and soft drinks. There will be a raffle so get the family and neighbors all together and come out and enjoy the evening and help support the Grange. If you have any used eyeglasses bring them along so the Grange can take them to the Grange camp so they can be taken to Pomeroy, Ohio, where they will be cataloged and then taken to third-world countries for people there who can’t afford them. Also the Grange collects pop tabs which are sold and the money given to the deaf schools of Ohio. We made a trip Monday to

ing by golly the ice cream really hit the spot. We would pull the pontoon under a shade tree and really get serious with the ice cream. Happy George Birthday Bill on Rooks your 91 years. OLE FISHERMAN We have been cutting cabbage. Ruth Ann made cole slaw for a special meal last week for a special friend of hers. This gal Lois and Ruth Ann went to school together and Lois was bridesmaid at our wedding. The menu for the noon meal was stir fried onions, celery, carrots, yellow squash, green pepper, everything but the celery was from our garden. Fish, fried taters, iced tea and for dessert was apple pie. We made another trip down to Moscow to give a card to a man that lost everything. Folks thought he was in a nursing home, but he was in Felicity living in a trailer. His daughter and her husband have been helping him and she called us so we could get to them. We met her on Wednesday at 1 p.m.
