Mulberry Elementary School students have another safe way to reach school this fall: Walking. Construction on a new sidewalk from the school to Linden Creek Drive and from Deblin Drive to Community Park is complete, said Miami Township Administrator Larry Fronk. The project was made possible by a Transportation Enhancement Grant from the Ohio Department of Transportation, said Assistant Township Administrator Jeff Wright. “This money is available for projects that encourage alternative means of travel within a community,” he said. Wright said ODOT entered into a contract with R.A. Miller Construction Co. for about $133,000 and the township’s match was about $26,000. “Work was on schedule and they did a very good job,” Fronk said. “They were able to put the sidewalk in without tearing up a lot of the grass within the work area.” Construction began earlier this summer and did not cause any traffic problems, Fronk said.



This is a portion of the recently completed sidewalk along Buckwheat Road in Miami Township. “Traffic was not an issue, there were no complaints about traffic,” he said. “I believe all the residents in the area are pleased with the sidewalks. I’ve seen people using them since they’ve been completed, so that’s very good to see.” Miami Township Trustee Mary Makley Wolff has been working with Fronk for several years to get the sidewalk project started and

was happy to have this portion finished. “I think the hardest part about doing any project with government funding is that you’re always at the mercy of when that funding becomes available,” she said. “It takes a lot of patience and persistence to get the sidewalks and we had a lot of people for a lot of years working to make this happen. It looks like it happened

overnight, but it was a lot of hard work done by a lot of people.” Both Fronk and Wolff said they’ve enjoyed working with residents to find where they wanted sidewalks in the township. “There’s a grassroots effort in Miami Township to have sidewalks constructed,” Fronk said. “It’s kind of a bottom-up type of effort, which I love because the residents really want them and I have a board of trustees who are committed to building sidewalks. We’re trying to do what residents would like us to do.” Now the trustees and administrator will turn their focus to building sidewalks in other areas of the township. There are already four projects planned for 2011 and 2012, Fronk said. Residents can expect sidewalks on Wolfpen-Pleasant Hill Road and Business Ohio 28. Sidewalks are also planned for a portion of Branch Hill Guinea Pike from Glen Echo to Ohio 28 and on Ohio 28 from Woods Point to Branch Hill Guinea Pike, Fronk said. “This is just the beginning,” Wolff said. “Our priorities are going to be places where we can link schools. It’s healthier for them to walk to school, I just want them to get there safely.”

Coyote spotted in Milford By Kellie Geist

When you think of coyotes, you probably think of the rural Southwest, but the dog-like creatures are all over Clermont County. Andy Rineair, shuttle driver for Castrucci Chevrolet, July 22 saw a coyote walking toward U.S. 50 next to the Milford Shopping Center in the middle of the city. And he’s not the only one. The Roe family, who own D.E.R. Development at 750 U.S. 50, provide a home to about 10 Jacob Sheep. Hank Roe said these sheep have horns and should be able to defend the flock, but the family thinks they have lost more

Paint Out

Miami Township resident Margi Hopkins works on a pastel painting of the Little Miami River near American Legion Post 450 during the Plein Air Painters’ second annual Milford Paint Out Saturday, Aug. 7.

than one lamb to coyotes. “They are supposed to be able to defend themselves, but when you have the small lambs and the adults get sheepish, no pun intended, I guess that’s a recipe for disaster,” Roe said. “In 2009, we had four lambs and a couple of them either died of natural causes or were attacked by coyotes.” Roe said the family has found the carcasses of lambs on their property as evidence of coyote attacks, but it’s been at least a year since they’ve lost any. Richard Jasper, an assistant wildlife management supervisor with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, said it’s not uncommon to find coyotes in suburban areas.

“Coyotes are everywhere all over North America and in the state of Ohio ... You are just as likely to see one in the city as you are out in the county,” Jasper said. “They expanded and adapted to living with people.” To be safe, Jasper said anyone who has seen a coyote near their house should be careful. “Even though we haven’t had a problem with the coyotes, if you have toddlers, don’t let them out of your sight,” he said. He also said to keep an eye on pets. If a coyote is a nuisance, you can clap or yell to scare it off, Jasper said. Because coyotes are wild, there is no need to call the police or animal control, he said.

Truck issues move to Milford council The Milford Safety Services Committee met Tuesday, Aug. 3, to discuss and listen to concerns about parking large commercial trucks in the city’s neighborhoods. For about two hours, people on both sides of the issue spoke about a variety of concerns including the safety of having big trucks in the city and the aesthetics of South Milford versus personal property rights and disputes between neighbors. At the end of the meeting, the committee voted to put the large

trucks issue on the agenda for the city council work session at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 11, in the city council chambers, 745 Center St. Committee members Mark Rohrig, Charlene Hinners and Geoff Pittman all agreed this issue needs to be discussed with council as a whole. “We have what we need to have in front of us to make a decision and we need to make a decision. I think we really need to have a session on this particular issue with all of council,” Hinners said.

While some residents asked the committee to not change the ordinances, Pittman said something needs to be done to clarify the existing code. “There were at least four people who called me and told me they were, literally, afraid of speaking up publicly because they were afraid of being targeted ... When we are to the point that our neighbors and our citizens are afraid of speaking openly, it’s time to draw a close to the issue. I don’t think there’s a question about that,” he said.

Milford’s Art Affaire has something for everyone By Kellie Geist

Whether you’re looking for something to spice up your living or doing some early holiday shopping, the Greater Milford Area Historical Society hopes they’ll have something to suit your fancy. The society’s annual Art Affaire will be from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 11, the same day as the Historic Milford Association’s Sunflower Streetfest. “We had the Art Affaire on the same day as Sunflower (Streetfest) last year and it went very well. Having people going back and forth between the events gives them a chance to see a variety of what makes us Milford,” said Donna Amann, historical society administrator. While the streetfest is in Historic Downtown Milford, the Art Affaire is about two miles away at the Promont House Museum, 906 Main St. During the later part of the Art Affaire, the historical society will shuttle people between the two events. While the Art Affaire is not a juried show, event coordinator Tracy Lanham said the quality of work is something that sets this art fair apart. “We always have a nice mixture of quality artisans. I think that what makes us successful,” she said. Lanham also said the event is special because it’s held on the Promont grounds. “The grounds are beautiful and the house and music

The annual Art Affaire at the Promont House Museum is a fundraiser for the Greater Milford Area Historical Society. This is from the 2009 event.

The whole atmosphere is just so relaxing and nice, it’s not an art fair with rows of booths crammed together in a straight line in the hot sun,” she said. While the event is a nice way to showcase the historical society and Promont, the raffle during the Art Affaire is one of the society’s main fundraisers. Proceeds are used for scholarships and operations. This year’s Art Affaire will have a second fundraiser – an amateur Art in the Garden Flower Show. Amann said there will be five classes and it’s free to

enter. Visitors will be able to buy $1 tickets to vote for their favorite arrangement. The arrangement with the most votes will win the “People’s Choice Award.” The money collected will be used for the historical society’s future landscaping and grounds projects. Parking for the Art Affaire will be on the Ohio 28 side of the Kroger parking lot and in the Little Caesars parking lot. A shuttle will run continuously to take people to the Art Affaire. Only handicapped parking will be available at the Promont House Museum. The Promont House Museum will be open for the flower show, but tours will not be conducted, during the Art Affaire.

Discover antiques in Milford By Kellie Geist

Do you have an old doll in your attic? What about a few antique tools in your garage? Whether it’s a family heirloom or just something you picked up at a yard sale, the Greater Milford Events and Arts Council is looking to give you some insight. The GMEAC will host an Antiques Discovery Day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 28, at the Milford Community Firefighters’ Hall, 1005 Lila Ave. During the event, there will be appraisers who specialize in ceramics, pottery, early toys, folk art, glass, silver, jewelry, metals, paintings, prints, textiles and Southwest Native American artifacts.

“Everyone has those things that have been sitting in the attic for years. We want to give people an idea of what those antiques and collectibles are,” said Connie Hunter, council president. Hosting an event about antiques came about because many of the council’s members have been involved with collecting or selling antiques and collectibles, she said. “This is just great because it has brought all the members of the council together. We’re looking forward to doing a lot more things in the community,” Hunter said. Admission is $5 and will be applied to the first item presented for appraisal. Additional items are $5 each. Proceeds from the event will benefit GMEAC’s mission to provide community art

Sunflower Revolution returns By Kellie Geist

For the third year, thousands of bicyclists will descend on Milford for the annual Sunflower Revolution bike race. The race activities will start Friday, Sept. 10, with a short-course criterium (a type of bike race) – the Milford Sunflower Classic – through historic downtown Milford. The Sunflower Revolution races will be Sunday, Sept. 12, with three bike races and a run and a walk. Council member and Historic Milford Association spokesperson Laurie Walter said Sunflower Revolution is a great summer event for people to support. “In other communities, people come out to watch the bike races, but people don’t seem to come out for this one. There are going to be thousands of people in our city and it’s a great opportunity to show them

what kind of city Milford is,” Walter said. “I would encourage people to come out, line the streets and see all of these amazing races.” Registration for the Milford Sunflower Classic will start at 4 p.m. at Sonrise Church on the corner of Main and Water streets. The race will start at 6:05 p.m. Sunday’s races will start at 8 a.m. with the 100K ride followed by the Sunflower Stroll at 8:45 a.m. and the 40K ride and family ride begin at 9 a.m. Register at Sunflower Revolution spokesperson Jackie Hendrickson said this year’s honorary event chairs will be Ron and Penny Carson of Maineville. “After being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1995, 49-year-old Ron Carson was determined not to let it keep him from biking, hiking and exploring the outdoors ... “It was through the Sun-

flower Revolution that Ron discovered support and a belief in staying alive, even with Parkinson’s disease,” Hendrickson said in a press release. To celebrate Sunflower Revolution, HMA will sponsor the Sunflower Streetfest. This will be the second year for the streetfest, which will be from noon to 8 p.m. on Main Street in historic downtown. During this event, there will be exhibitors, music, food and wine. Also, most of the stores downtown will be open. “Last year was the first year for streetfest and it was such a huge hit that we are building on it,” Walter said. “It’s going to be great.” Walter said HMA is looking for volunteers to help run the beer and wine booths as well as to provide stage security. Anyone who would be willing to volunteer should contact her at

Walking tour features historic cemetery Enjoy a historic walking tour through Greenlawn Cemetery in Milford between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 3, 687 U.S. 50. Admission is $10 payable the day of the event. Members of the Milford Theatre Guilde and the Greater Milford Area Historical Society will portray historical characters buried in Greenlawn. The tour groups will plan on visiting with the Rev. Philip Gatch and his wife Elizabeth; Cincinnati Reds pitcher Eppa Rixey; Gover-

nor John Pattison’s daughter Aletheia; and several other interesting “residents.” Gary Knepp, well known Clermont County historian and author, will greet visitors at the cannons in Sections 17 and 18 near the flagpole and tell the history of the cannons during the tour. The Hopewell Indians first marked the spot nearly 1,000 years ago when they constructed a 28-acre enclosure. The site was used by the Hopewell for religious ceremonies and to observe the movement of the stars

and planets. Unfortunately, time and human activity have degraded the earthen walls to just faint traces. In 1798, Rev. Philip Gatch purchased a small tract of land near Francis McCormick’s for $230 ($4 an acre). He built and moved his family into his cabin in February 1799. Gatch was buried there following his death Dec. 28, 1834, in the oldest section of the cemetery along with other members of his family. For details, contact society Administrator Donna Amann at 248-0324.

Five nominated for Gatch award Orpha Gatch of Milford volunteered for many organizations and causes during her life, including working to make sure women had the right to vote. It is her dedication to making her community better that the League of Women Voters of Clermont County will honor when they present the Orpha Gatch Citizenship Award Aug. 24. The women nominated for this year’s award are: Judith Adams Judi Adams is a life-long resident of Bethel. Professionally, she served as branch manager of Key Bank Bethel and currently is the vice president/client relationship officer of Bethel Building and Loan. She recruited volunteers for Bethel’s “Cleanup, Paint-up, Fix-up” to assist seniors and beautify the village. She petitioned village council to repave Burke Park and she annually gathers business people for a Mix & Mingle event. In the community, she is a member of the Clermont Senior Services board, the Bethel Historical Society and the finance and steering committees for St. Mary Parish. She helps children by participating in school functions, leading Scout meetings, teaching Sunday School, and by serving as a pee-wee cheerleading coach and leader of the Junior Auxiliary of the American Legion. “I have a passion to make the village of Bethel a place where people really can work together, help each other out, and share

each others’ lives,” Adams said. Adams organized Bethel’s 5K Walk/10K run and now serves as chair for the annual event. She also coordinates Bethel’s Down Home Christmas. Last fall, Adams had another idea for creating “community unity,” and she organized the Bethel Arts and Music Festival. She worked for months recruiting volunteers, artists, musicians and food vendors for a day of community fun and entertainment. Her dream came true May 8 when the inaugural BAMfest happened, featuring children’s activities, a classic car show, entertainment, and log cabin/Bethel Museum tours. Alice Ballard Alice Ballard’s job is site manager for St. Mark’s Community senior living complex in Milford. Residents say Ballard’s “true heart” is with senior citizens as she spends hours starting new classes, making up unique games for parties and just listening to anyone with a need. Ballard wanted to beautify the complex’s property and create an enjoyable location for residents, so she spent hours planning and coordinating volunteers from Lowe’s and Thrivent Financial to plant flowers. The result is a friendship garden residents and visitors enjoy. Professionally, she has been certified COS (Circle of Security) for senior assessment and treatment and had St. Mark’s Community nominated for a Small Busi-

ness of the Year award. In recognition of her habit of going “above and beyond her duties,” residents nominated her for an AOPHA Stars award, which she won from the Association of Philanthropic Homes for the Aged. She also has been the recipient of a caregiver award from St. Peter in Chains Cathedral. Ballard serves on the wellness subcommittee for Graceworks Housing Services and was co-chair for wellness with the Healthy Ohio Advisory Council. In the community, she participated in the 2008 Clermont 20/20 senior leadership program, she volunteers for Milford’s Super Senior Saturday and the Clermont Chamber marketing committee. She coordinated a recent Clermont Chamber tailgate to bring business people together at St. Mark’s. Her example has also rubbed off on the residents of St. Mark’s, with many of them becoming community volunteers. Melissa Fossier Melissa Fossier has taken the pain and sorrow of losing a daughter and turned it into positive actions that support children. Nine-year-old Natalie Fossier was outside with her dog after an ice storm in 2007 when she was killed by a falling tree limb. The Fossier family set up the Natalie Fossier Scholarship Fund with the original intent of funding a single scholarship for one of Natalie’s classmates upon graduation. The response was over-

whelming and inspired Melissa and Dave Fossier to “invest in Adams the lives of other children, especially those in Milford.” To support the scholarship fund, a Fly Thru the Park 5K Run/Walk and Silent Auction was organized at Miami Meadows park. The event, now in its fourth year, has become an annual summer community fundraiser. More than 10 scholarships have been awarded to Milford High School students. At McCormick Elementary, where Natalie went to school: Those in need receive eyeglasses, tutoring, doctor visits, clothing, extra-curricular fees and school supplies. Funds are provided anonymously to preserve their dignity. The fund supports special events like enrichment field trips and anti-bullying programs. Donations are made to food pantries, homeless shelters, nursing homes, libraries, Scout troops and the Humane Society. Natalie wrote in her journal that her goals were to help the poor, the homeless, students with school work and to volunteer in nursing homes, orphanages and at the animal shelter. Fossier honors this legacy through her determination despite her own loss. Nancy Haines Nancy Haines began her service to the community helping Mary Miller, whose fund has aided Milford and Miami Township families since the 1950s. Eight years ago, Haines became a member of the St. Vincent de Paul Society at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church. Her husband suggested she “give back to others.” At first, she made a weekly trip to the FreeStoreFoodBank to bring food to needy families in Clermont County. Today, she makes

Ballard Fossier five trips per week. Last year she delivered 300,000 pounds of food to the St. Vincent de Paul pantry and Teen Challenge. Haines collects clothing, especially for the annual giveaways that church volunteers provide for schoolage children. She has compassion for families in need because she grew up without much. She said programs like St. Vincent de Paul’s were not accessible to her family. Haines said volunteers focus on children because “too often, children are picked on for not having the right clothes at school.” Although Haines works full-time, she helps her son’s Boy Scout troop, donates blood, volunteers for political campaigns and works at her church festival. In 2001, she began “Ann’s Attic” in honor of her mother. Haines saw families did not have basic needs such as beds, dressers and sofas, so she began collecting items and delivering them. This project has the distinctive imprint of Haines’ approach to service: Identify a need, work humbly to meet it and continue believing each person can make a difference. Karen Huff Karen Huff’s community engagement spans school, civic and military support in Milford and Clermont County, providing what area residents view as “a daily symbol of energy, optimism and trust in our community.” With Milford schools, Huff serves on the Business Advisory Council and the Milford School Foundation. For Live Oaks, she serves on the Business Advisory Council. Huff’s civic work involves hundreds of volunteer hours that shows her

Haines Huff desire “to attempt anything that will help her community.” She works annually to coordinate Frontier Days in Milford and volunteers at Miami Township’s Midsummer at the Meadows. She serves on Milford’s Beautification Committee, making positive changes with attractive landscaping and signage, and is a past board member of the Historic Milford Association. She volunteers with the RiversEdge Collision Center Car Show and serves on the committee for the Milford/Miami Township Firefighters Combat Challenge. She also has worked on Go with the Flow, raising money to fight breast cancer, and Courage for Corey, a fundraiser to help a family with medical costs for their son’s cancer treatment. Huff has a son overseas in the military. She takes pride in what he’s doing and volunteers with the Yellow Ribbon Support Center to support other service members and their families. In addition, she has taken on the work of caring for the Honor Guard at visitations and services for any county resident who has died while in the service, and she also helps support the Family and Patriot Guard. The league will host the annual 14th Suffragist Event at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 24, at Receptions Eastgate. The reception starts at 5:30 p.m. with a buffet dinner at 6 p.m. After dinner, league members will present the award. The event is open to the public, but reservations are required. A single reservation is $35 and a table reservation is $350. For reservation information, contact Cyn Macke at 5537349 or e-mail her at

SCHOOLS New tennis courts open to public August 11, 2010


Editor Theresa Herron | | 248-7128

By Mary Dannemiller

The new tennis courts at Milford High School aren’t just for members of the tennis teams. Milford and Miami Township residents are invited to use the five courts, which are next to Milford Junior High School, 5735 Wolfpen-Pleasant Hill Road, said Milford schools spokesperson Meg Krsacok. The Milford Athletic Booster

Club donated the money necessary to pay for the courts, which opened to the tennis team earlier this summer, Krsacok said. “I think it’s important to share our schools,” said Superintendent Bob Farrell. “Our facilities are the community’s facilities and I think it’s very important to share the exciting opening of our tennis courts and use of those courts with our community.” Tennis matches and other offi-



cial school activities will have priority use of the courts, but they also will be open to the public daily from dusk until dawn, Krsacok said. “There will be many opportunities for the public to come and experience the recreational fun of playing the sport of tennis on these fantastic new court facilities,” said athletic director Mark Trout. School board member Gary Knepp was not in favor of the new






tennis courts, but said he was happy they are open to the public. “There have been citizens up there and if citizens are up there playing, that’s a good thing,” he said. Trout also said he was happy the boosters and the school district worked to make the new courts happen. “This project was a fantastic example of how the district and its supporters can work together for the common good of our students,



staff and community,” he said. “We appreciate everything the athletic boosters do for our athletic program and student body.” Farrell agreed and said community members and student tennis players alike would be able to enjoy the new courts. “I think they’re beautiful,” he said. “The courts are really well done and we’re going to get a lot of use out of them from the school and our community for many years to come.”

Four Clermont Northeastern FFA members attended Ohio FFA Camp in Muskingum earlier this summer. It is believed this was the first time any CNE FFA members had attended the camp. From left are, from left: Anthony Moore, Rebecca Barnes, Tiffany Moore and Kellie Nause.

Members from the CNE FFA chapter attended the fifth session of the Ohio FFA Camp Muskingum July 12 through July 16. This is the first time that CNE FFA has taken the opportunity to send members to FFA Camp and it was a great experience for each member. The FFA members who attended camp are Anthony Moore, Rebecca Barnes, Tiffany Moore and Kellie Nause.

At camp the members were accompanied by the 2010-2011 State FFA officers and the state camp staff. Members from across the state were randomly placed on teams, where they participated in many leadership activities and workshops. The members listened to guest speakers talk about defending agriculture and about self esteem. The members at camp also helped

raise money for Children’s Hospital and CNE FFA made a donation for the cause. The CNE FFA members would like to again say “thank you” to the scholarship donors who allowed them to take part in this great opportunity. FFA Camp Scholarship donors were: CNE Superintendent Neil Leist , Mike Kirk, Mike Gentry, Wade Reeves, John Carney, Matt Earley, Jason Tackett and Jerry’s Welding.

New courts, new challenges for Milford By Adam Turer

The Milford High School varsity girls’ tennis team will look to underclassmen to step up and help the returning players fill the void left by the departure of three of last season’s top players. Lauren Poole, Cora Petrosky and Sarah Kruse all graduated after leading the Eagles in 2009. The 2010 roster features returning senior Gabby Medvedec, juniors Shannon Glancy and Juleah Morehouse, and sophomore Madison Laskarzewski. “This year’s team will have to work hard to make up for the experience and leadership that graduated last year,” said head coach Jeffrey Hoover. Hoover expects newcomers Jade Brown, a sophomore, and freshman Brittney Lovdal to help the returning players in their quest for a Fort Ancient Valley Conference East Division crown. 2010 marks the first season for the newly divided FAVC. The league shifted from three to two divisions this year. “This year’s league matches will be a big test for the team, with many of them being against recent top-ten ranked area teams,”

The Rockets look to improve on last season’s disappointing 1-11 finish in Southern Buckeye Academic Athletic Conference play. That team was young and inexperienced. This year’s squad hopes another year of experience will lead to improvement on the court.


The Warriors return five of last season’s top seven players. Hillary Hulsmeyer returns at top singles. Chyna Perkins and Madison Martell will fill out the other two singles positions. Abbi Poff, Hannah Musgrove, Emily Carlson, and Becca Siekbert will play doubles for the Warriors. “Last year, a lot of these girls were starting from scratch,” head coach Pete Patterson said. “We have a much more experienced group this year.”


Blake Juras serves it up on her new home court.

Hoover said. “We look at this as a big challenge that we are excited about.” The Eagles are also excited about playing the 2010 season on their new home courts at Milford High School.

Meade lead the experienced roster. Junior Amanda Burdsall moves from the middle to an outside hitter position and will be a key player for the Rockets. Last season, CNE pushed several opponents to a fifth game before falling short of a victory. This season, the goal is to finish strong. “I think we have the ability to finish games,” Tobe said. “I think we’ll be a pretty good team.” The Rockets will battle

against Southern Buckeye Academic Athletic Conference favorites Western Brown and Goshen for the league crown. The seniors have worked hard to improve in each of their varsity seasons and know that this is their last chance to turn those close losses into wins. “Our girls are committed to the team and have been working hard this summer,” Tobe said. “They really want it.”

Other volleyball programs

The Eagles finished the 2009 season in third place in the Fort Ancient Valley Conference Buckeye Division, behind league champion Harrison. The Eagles will not have to battle the Wildcats for a league title this year in the newly realigned FAVC. Milford will still battle rival Anderson in the new FAVC East, but will also compete against last season’s FAVC Scarlet champ Kings. The Eagles return senior Megan Knight, junior Mallory Baker, and sophomore Rachael Sullivan.


The Warriors have five starters returning from last season’s 8-12 team. Sarah Barrial, Ashley Tidwell, Kiley Collins, Kaitlyn Tucker and Kelly Parriman lead an experienced group. They will be joined by newcomers Tesla Mueller, Erica Miracle, AJ Jones, and Courtney Wilson. The Warriors’ goal is to finish the regular season above .500 and notch a postseason victory.

Area high school golfers on par for good seasons By Melisa Cole

High school golf began this week with the Goshen Warriors and Milford Eagles both in competition on Aug. 10, past deadline. Goshen is led by head coach Shiloh Ashley. The team has three returning varsity players who will look to guide the team this season. Senior Kurt Ewyer is in his fourth year playing on the team. Shane Over is the second returning senior on the varsity team. Sophomore Tanner Stewart also returns to the varsity team after playing for them his freshman year. The Warriors have nine golfers on their team including first year varsity senior Roenick Whitney. Their first competition is against Western Brown.

“They (Western Brown) are a good team. They always have experienced golfers. It will be tough if they are as good as they have been,” Ashley said. Coach Phil Sheldon is excited for the upcoming season with his Milford Eagles. The Eagles have three seniors, two juniors, and one freshman, who make up their six-person team. Returning seniors are Cody Giles, Ben Ehemann and Tyler Wade. Joining the seniors are juniors Trey Scheurer and Mike Brokksbank and freshman Austin Taylor. The first match is again Purcell Marian followed by the Fairfield Invitational. “All six players are expecting to be very productive on and off the golf course,” Sheldon said. The Clermont Northeast-

ern Rockets have spent all summer in coach Sean Roy’s “Cadet Program” preparing for the upcoming season. The team is headed by their No. 1 golfer, captain Steven Pridett, who is in his fourth year with the team. “I expect him to make it to state,” Sheldon said. Another player to watch for is sophomore Jesse “Sarge” Stergile, who has two years with the team. “He has the most potential this year. I’m expecting him to break out,” Sheldon said. Other players to look for on the Rockets are senior Dexter Lambert, junior Phil Samst and sophomores Alan Compton and Ben Frazier. CNE begins competition Tuesday, Aug. 17.

Korea is known as the Forgotten War There were no “welcome home” parades for the 1.7-million Americans returning from the Korean War. They were largely ignored. Some were shunned in veteran’s halls or were called losers. Signs appeared in Cincinnati which read, “Dogs and G.I.s not allowed.” They didn’t whine or complain. They simply picked up their lives where they had left them. They got a job or went to school. They married, raised families, and played active roles in their communities. Why did we treat these warriors so badly? Perhaps it was because President Truman called the war a “police action,” although two million people, including 37,000 Americans, were killed in three years. Maybe

it was because Korea was our first limited war without victory as the objective. It ended not with a treaty, but an armistice ending hostilities – we Gary Knepp still have 28,500 Community American troops South Press guest protecting Korea. As a columnist result, we don’t celebrate a V-K day as we do V-E and V-J days which ended WWII. We were unprepared for war in 1950. We had demobilized our military to alarmingly low levels after World War II. The divisions that remained were drastically

CH@TROOM Last week’s question:

What was your best summer job? Your worst? Why? “My best summer job was at a camp called Camp Nuhop. It was a camp for children with disabilities. It was located by Mohican State Park. I learned all kinds of skills pertaining to group control and positive discipline. “I went on to a career as a special educator going on 32 years now. The camp is still operating and I refer many students there.” K.S. “My best summer job was when I was between my junior and senior years in high school. I worked, along with my nephew, at the Easterly Sewage Plant in Cleveland, spreading gravel. It was also my worst summer job, since it’s the only summer job I ever held.” B.B. “For the summer between high school graduation and college I landed a job as a temporary postal carrier. Besides it being a decent paying job, I got to be outdoors and meet lots of people all over Greater Cincinnati. It was also a transition for me since, for the first time in my life, adults treated me as an adult.” R.V. “My best summer job was the summer I was 16. A family I babysat for had a little boy who was 2. About two weeks before summer break his mom gave birth to twin girls. My summer job was going to their house Monday-Friday during the day to help with the kids. “Some days I was there with Michele and the kids, some days I would have one kid, two kids, or all three kids. I learned how to determine who was crying, why they were crying, and could tend to all three at the same time if need be. “This remained my summer job for the next couple of summers. I loved the job and those kids. It was so rewarding. And 16 years when my husband and I had twin boys I could not thank them enough for all great experience to hit the ground running.” T.S. “Worst summer job was working at Mr. Gatti’s Pizza on Beechmont (about 25 years ago). I worked mostly until closing, and

It was hard work, but I met a lot of nice people, including a co-worker that I still keep in touch with today. I kept the courts in shape, daily treating them and restriping them to await the barrage of players that would come out even in the 90-plus degree heat. “My worst summer job would have to be when I was in high school and it was my job to pass out coupons for free RC and DietRite cola after the riots of 1968. “It was hot, sticky work walking door to door making blind calls. Obviously people were skeptical, but gladly accepted free pop. If only life’s problems could be solved so ‘easily’ with free soft drinks.” R.L.H. “My favorite was working in a small grocery store in a little country town. It was enjoyable because I knew most of the customers and there were always interesting conversations about family, friends, etc ... B.N. “My one and only summer job was working at Kings Island its first and second season! Oh what fun. “I enjoyed meeting all the guests that came to the park, plus other teen employees from different areas of Cincinnati – Anderson Township, Indian Hill, Wyoming, etc...oh my gosh. Not to mention that we got free admission to the park when we weren’t working.” C.A.S.

undermanned with green recruits. They were poorly equipped with radios that didn’t work and artillery shells that bounced off North Korean tanks. And they were often poorly led. This negligence resulted in a humiliating retreat for our troops to a last stand at Pusan before a brilliant amphibious landing at Inchon unleashed American power. There were appalling intelligence failures as well. We ignored backchannel diplomatic warnings and probing attacks from the Chinese as we pushed to the Yalu River. Our forces were devastated by massed Chinese human wave attacks in the rugged mountains where temperatures dropped to 35 degrees. The first Marine Division broke out of a communist

trap at the Chosin Reservoir in one of the greatest fighting retreats in history, carrying all of their dead and wounded with them. Our forces rallied again under the inspired leadership of General Matthew B. Ridgway, driving the Chinese and North Koreans back across the 38th Parallel dividing North and South Korea. And here the war devolved into a nasty, brutish, trench warfare reminiscent of World War I. While negotiations to end the war were going on, 40 percent of American casualties were sustained fighting over meaningless pieces of ground, which came to be known as Outpost Harry, Old Baldy and Pork Chop Hill. Historian Bevin Alexander described Korea as the first war

This year’s spelling bee called a B-I-G success How do you spell this year’s spelling bee sponsored by The Literacy Council of Clermont and Brown Counties and Adult Basic Literacy Education (ABLE)? S-U-C-C-E-S-S-F-U-L. Not only did it raise more than $7,000 to support literacy, it increased in both the number of teams and colorful costumes. Plus, its own team spelled its way to victory. St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church earned second place and Locust Corner Community Church captured third place. Denise Wood, Tammy Brown and Nancy Dunton were good spellers for the Clermont Senior Services team. They also were AN-G-E-L-S. Due to personal circumstances and commitments, the agency’s veteran team members – Jason Palm, Bill DeHass and Beth Rawdon – stepped down as spellers and joined the sidelines as members of the agency’s cheering squad. Like college students cramming for exams, Denise, Tammy and Nancy burned the midnight oil studying their words. They did the agency proud. I put out a challenge after last year’s event daring teams to don costumes. Boy, did they. Besides the Chef, Driver and Red Hat Society member who represented the Meals-on-Wheels, transportation and lifelong learning programs at Clermont Senior Services, I saw chickens, Vikings, super heroes,

bumble bees and spellers in crazy hats. Chatfield College won the Best Costume Award and Work Force One captured the Best Spirit award. Sharon I also saw 15 Brumagem teams having fun. that’s what Community And the annual event Press guest is all about: Raiscolumnist ing money to help others learn to read and having fun. Other teams who competed were: Child Focus, Clermont County Educational Service Center, Donohoo, Cupp and Beck, CPAs, Great Oaks Career Campuses, Park National Bank, UC Clermont, Grant Career Center and Western Brown schools. “I think it was a great bee.” said Kathleen Gillespie, one of the organizers. “We had four more teams than last year, and we were very pleased to have two Brown County teams. Thanks to the generosity of our contributors, we were able to find sponsors for those teams who couldn’t pay the entry fee. Thanks also to all sponsors, donors, volunteers and attendees who helped make our spelling bee a success.” UC Clermont served as corporate sponsor. (Clermont Senior Services thanks Tom Rocklin and

Vouchers available for spay/neutering While I was at the League of Animal Welfare last week at least three calls came in asking for the shelter to take litters of kittens. The league is a no-kill shelter and it was sad listening to the staff explain to the callers that the shelter was full and there was a long waiting list. From what the staff said, this had been going on all day. The league has accomplished a lot in the are of spay/neuter for cats and dogs, but obviously there is still much to be done and with your help we can reduce the number of homeless pets in our community. The League for Animal Welfare provides spay/neuter assistance in the form of vouchers. The vouch-

ers are worth $15 for a cat and $25 for a dog spay/neuter. The league also partners with UCAN, a low-cost spay/neuter clinic in Cincinnati. Gale Proctor UCAN provides a Community monthly transport the clinic on Press guest to the second Tuescolumnist day of each month. During the months of August and September, a special discount will be given for animals using the transport from the League to UCAN. Combining the $5 discount and

we lost. Looking at Korea today, we can easily see the fallacy of that position. North Koreans live under an oppressive, totalitarian regime where people are forced to eat bark and grass to survive while the people of South Korea have a vibrant economy and an increasingly robust democracy. Now 60 years after its start, we should take time to learn more about “the forgotten war” and the contributions of our “forgotten warriors.” Tell them you appreciate their service. Why don’t we throw them a parade? Gary Knepp is an attorney with an office in Batavia and teaches American history at UC Clermont College.

$15 voucher cat surgeries would be $15. With this special discount, a dog neuter would be $35 and a dog spay would be $45. The pets picked up by UCAN in the morning, surgeries are performed by a vet at the clinic, and pets are returned the following morning to the league for pick up by pet owners. Call the League of Animal Welfare at 735-2299 for information. It has been reported that more than 44,000 pets were euthanized in Greater Cincinnati last year. Please help us reduce that number.

Cardboard Boat Ray keeps regatta sailing smoothly By John Seney


Kimberly Riley deLuca, or “Miss Kimberly,” cuts 3-year-old Anneliese Knights hair at the new Stylin’ On Main Kids Salon.

Stylin’ On Main opens salon for kids By Kellie Geist

Stylin’ On Main has been turning out hair styles for more than 30 years, but now the full-service salon is ready to take on more young clients. Stylin’ on Main opened Stylin On Main For Kids Saturday, July 24, with the help of experienced kids’ stylist Kimberly Riley deLuca. deLuca has been cutting hair for more than 20 years and 10 of those years have been spent exclusively with kids. In fact, she is the former manager of The Salon at Kid’s First. “Two years into giving up cutting adults’ hair, someone asked me if I liked my job. I said, ‘I love my job’ and that’s when I realized I really do love working with kids,” said deLuca. Amy Knight, a long-time client of deLuca’s, said it’s important to take your kids to someone who knows how to cut kids’ hair, not just to any stylist. “Kids can be unpredictable sometimes, but Kim really knows what to expect and how to handle it. Taking your child to get a haircut can be stressful and Kim makes all the difference,” Knight said. “(My children’s) hair can be difficult to cut and she really takes her time and does a thorough job. She’s wonderful.” She specializes in kids’ haircuts, but deLuca said she can also do styling, braiding, hair tattooing, island strands, hair wraps, treatments for swimmers’ hair and mini-manicures

Stylin’ On Main

212 Main St. in Milford 248-2500 Stylists are available by appointment for adult services. Stylin’ on Main for Kids hours are: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and pedicures. On special days, like before a football game, deLuca also can do spray hair coloring. In addition to the fun things she does on regular days, like giving kids temporary tattoos, deLuca is planning to offer birthday specials. Building owner Tanya Kircher said opening the salon for kids was part of Stylin’ On Main’s overall renovation and upgrading. In addition to the kids salon, Kircher brought in two experienced younger stylists who can provide newer services like hair extensions and body waxing. “Having the full-service salon and the kids salon makes Stylin’ On Main perfect for families,” Kircher said. “Everyone we’ve talked to is just so excited that there is someone local who specializes in kids’ haircuts. Now mom can come and get her hair done while the kids get a hair cut.” Overall, Kircher said Stylin’ On Main is a perfect salon because of the “friendly atmosphere, experienced stylists and reasonable prices.”

Stylists featured at Stylin’ on Main Jessica Apland has advanced training with Aveda, Paul Mitchell and Toni & Guy. She specializes in cutting, color and SoCap hair extensions.

Ray Perszyk is better known to many around New Richmond as Cardboard Boat Ray for his involvement in the annual Cardboard Boat Regatta. He starts planning for the race months in advance. In his spare time, he helps at the Cardboard Boat Museum on Front Street, billed as “The only cardboard boat museum in the world.” “Everybody has a good time,” Perszyk said of the regatta, which takes place Saturday, Aug. 21. “It’s a lot of fun.” Perszyk has been involved in the race for 17 years. He started out competing in the event, but now leaves that to his grandsons. “I’m more involved on the beach and organizing now,” he said. Perszyk serves on a committee of eight people who help plan and organize the race. The committee starts working on the event in March or April each year. “Everybody knows what to do,” he said. “It works smoothly.” His main job, he said, is “getting the word out” about the race. Perszyk retired about five years ago, but has kept busy with volunteer work. He has a background in graphic arts and has helped the village design its logo and set up its website. Perszyk also served on

The museum has displays of boats that have raced in the Cardboard Boat Regatta. village council and has been active with downtown revitalization efforts. His efforts earned him recognition in 2009 as New Richmond’s Citizen of the Year. Mayor Ramona Carr said Perszyk “has put a lot of energy into the village of New Richmond.” “Along with working to develop the Cardboard Boat Regatta into a major event for the village, he contributes towards our business development, annual events and just about anything we ask him for assistance,” she said. “We first met Ray when he volunteered to use his design skills for a new village’s logo and signage. He has never stopped helping us out. He uses his energy all year long promoting the Cardboard Boat Regatta and other New Richmond events.” Perszyk said the honor was “a real surprise.” He has lived in New Richmond for 22 years, having moved from Anderson Township because he “wanted to get back to a rural setting but still be close to the city.” Perszyk sees revitalization efforts in the village paying off. “It’s coming back to life,” he said. “We have assets a

The museum has become a tourist destination for many. “It’s amazing how many people wander in here from

all over the country,” Perszyk said. Money from sponsors helps pay for the museum. Volunteers also sell souvenir T-shirts. This year, a cardboard boat at the museum is being raffled off as a fundraiser. For a $1 raffle ticket, participants have a chance to win a boat, a life jacket, a paddle and a $15 entry fee in this year’s regatta. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Peacock finds home in New Richmond By John Seney

A peacock has found a home on the streets of New Richmond. Mayor Ramona Carr said no one knows where the peacock came from or who owns him. He has been there about a year, and has been named Jacob, after Jacob Light, the village’s founder. “He mostly stays on Front Street,” Carr said, although he has been spotted around the New Richmond schools in the Watkins Hill Road area. She said people feed him cracked corn, peanuts and Little Debbie snack cakes. “He is pretty street smart,” Carr said. “I saw


Jacob the peacock has found a home along the New Richmond waterfront. him chasing a dog one day.” The Midwest climate doesn’t bother Jacob. “We saw him walking through the snow all winter,” Carr said. Bob Lees, owner of the Front Street Cafe, said this spring some village mer-

chants thought Jacob might be getting lonely. “He was getting friendly with the ducks and geese,” he said. So they pitched in and purchased a peahen from a farmer in Brown County. The peahen was named

Susanna, after the wife of the founder of the village of Susanna, which merged with New Richmond. “We got the two together, and they both seemed happy,” Lees said. “Then, all of a sudden they both disappeared.” Jacob has since reappeared on Front Street, and Susanna has been spotted around the village, but not in the company of Jacob. “She’s more elusive than Jacob,” Lees said. He thinks the courtship may have been successful and Susanna is looking for a place to build a nest. The mayor said Jacob is welcome to stay as long as he likes. “He’s our town bird,” Carr said.

There are friends and then there’s a friend

The word friend can be a catch-all word. Some people boast about their Facebook friends, “I have 75 friends.” Others reply, “Oh, I have 125,250, or 410, on mine!” High numbers make us feel popular and wanted. In his talks on friendships, priest psychologist Henri Nouwen made some helpful distinctions. He said there are five categories of people we call friends. The categories move from an outermost circle (where intimacy is weak) to an inner circle (where the intimacy factor is strongest). The criterion for determining these five levels of friendship is the degree and quality of mutual self-disclosure involved. Acquaintances are the outer category people. We only know each other superficially. They may be a teacher; other parents we meet at field-side watching our kids play soccer; someone in our yoga class or that we met

on the Internet; a down-thes t r e e t neighbor, etc. T h e t o p i c s w i t h Father Lou a c q u a i n Guntzelman tances are Perspectives the weather, sports, newspaper items, school issues, life generalities, etc. There’s familiarity but no depth of communication. If we never see them again it doesn’t matter. Colleagues. These are the people with whom we work, volunteer, or meet while doing a project. When I taught high-school I was one of 71 teachers. We were friendly, joked, ate lunch together and chatted in the staff room. Our topics were usually school issues, certain students, athletics, gripes about the administration or parents, or a good movie we’ve seen.

At times there was a little more conversation into family or personal issues than with acquaintances, but not much. Relatives. These “friends” are the assorted group of our grandparents, aunts and uncles, marriage in-laws, cousins, etc. We may see them often or then again only at weddings, funerals, holidays and reunions. But we have a history together and more knowledge about each other. We may exchange minor confidences or problems such as how Uncle Brad was involved in some kind of shady business deal; Pam is coping with being bipolar; and Kimberly had a brief but passionate affair with a married man. But being a relative does not mean we necessarily choose them as deeper intimates. Family and friends. These are the people with whom we spend a great deal of our time and carry

CCDD attends ADA event July 26 marked the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a piece of legislation that has allowed people with disabilities to lead more active and independent lives. Adults from the Clermont County Board of Developmental Disabilities (CCDD) attended a celebration on Fountain Square July 26 to commemorate and honor the efforts of

individuals who made this legislation a reality. Several booths varying from local Lions Clubs to organizations providing services to those with disabilities were on display. Entertainment and special programs from local groups also were offered during the four-hour event. “This is a wonderful experience,” said Pattie Dick of Amelia, who attends the

CCDD Senior Retirement Program. Before the ADA was passed, people with disabilities often had a hard time participating in groups, organizations or churches. It was even difficult for someone with a disability to obtain a job. To learn about programs and services for people with disabilities in Clermont County, visit

fondly in our hearts – parents, siblings, spouse, children, lifelong friends, etc. They know us better than anyone. There is a deeper feeling of affection, mutual support, and trust. If we lose one of them in death we grieve profoundly. Family members share a lot with each other, but not everything. A psychologically healthy person has his or her own boundaries, inner life, secrets and individuality. These components of intimacy are shared only with someone of our own choice, and it is usually someone who is not a blood relative. Intimate friends. This is the innermost circle of

human friendship. It is usually our spouse or closest friend. Such a friendship is extremely difficult to develop, and sadly, is even lacking in some marriages. Recent studies indicate that compared to similar polls in the 1980s, there are fewer people today who believe they have a first-circle intimate friend. It requires mutual trust, in-depth and honest communication, and time. Our Facebook count may give us the impression that we have a thousand friends. But it’s unlikely that this most intimate-type friend is just one of the crowd. This most significant category is not achieved if our communication is chiefly

through e-mail or texting. A crucial element is missing – presence. Such a friend is a unique treasure and requires much openness and communication. I have remembered for years the wise words of a college teacher of mine about this truest kind of friend: “If in your lifetime, you have one, or two, such persons in your life, consider yourself fortunate.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Drink to your health … and for your health much as we do at the same exertion level, so in hot weather, a young athlete is at increased risk for dehydration. And remember, water works as a shock absorber in the body, so being hydrated protects joints, for both kids and adults. That’s why today I’m sharing recipes for good hydration. It’s that important. And be sure and check on older folks, too. They can become dehydrated without realizing it.

The temperature on our thermometer registered 103.2 this afternoon. And in the house, it wasn’t m u c h c o o l e r since I had been making elderberry jelly Rita and berry jams with Heikenfeld my sister, Rita’s kitchen Edith and neighbor, Sandy. But it made me think about kids and adults who are outdoors and involved in sports. Proper hydration is so important to good health and optimum performance. What I worry most about kids in this weather is that I know it takes longer for a child’s body to adjust to heat and humidity than does an adult’s, so we may not recognize when a child is in trouble, hydration wise. Kids produce more body heat and don’t sweat as

Homemade sports drink for kids

From my co-authored book “The Official Snack Guide For Beleaguered Sports Parents.” Check out colleague Dawn Weatherwax Fall’s website for more information on hydration and keeping your athlete healthy. To dilute a powdered juice drink, or juice from concentrate, use at least twice the water recom-

mended. Diluting the juice may taste weak, but it will hydrate your child and give energy for the game.

Rita’s spa water

I shared this recipe with Amy Tobin on her Aug. 8 radio show on Q102. Check out for the complete interview. Amy loves this drink, and so does everyone who tries it. Here’s why: Lemons contain vitamin C, which helps heal bruises, prevents cancer and heart disease. Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant, and the body uses vitamin C to manufacture collagen – that’s the stuff that glues cells together and helps heals cuts, etc. Again, the vitamin C allows your body to absorb calcium better. Susan Parker of Susan’s Natural World advises that lemons are a gentle liver cleanser. Lemons contain potassium, and we know that nourishes the brain, heart and muscles. It also helps your body better utilize car-

bohydrates and iron from food. The mint is a great digestive and uplifting herb plus it “fools” your brain into thinking you’re fuller than you are. And stevia is a natural sugar substitute herb.

Master recipe:

Fill a jar or pitcher halfway up with peppermint leaves, bruising the leaves as you go. Continue filling about 3⁄4 to the top with lemon slices, bruising the slices as you go. Fill with good quality water, let infuse for 30 minutes at least, and sweeten to taste. Use stevia, a natural sugar substitute herb, which is 30 to hundreds of times sweeter than sugar, or use honey, or drink as is. Check out my website for a video and more information about stevia. I like to add blueberries, raspberries or sliced strawberries for a burst of color and added nutrition. This drink is refillable.

Frappé like McDonald’s

How about this on a blistering hot day? Reader Tom Ohmer has been looking for a recipe. When I called McDonald’s, I got a long list of ingredients. It started out with normal items like water, cream, sugar, milk, coffee extract, Dutch cocoa, etc. Then it got dicey with words only a chemist could understand. Years ago in cooking school, we made a base for fun drinks and it is similar to recipes I found for this drink. So here’s my take on it.

Mix together:

1 ⁄3 cup instant coffee, dry, crushed 1 cup sugar 1 cup dry milk powder 3 ⁄4 cup nondairy creamer 1 ⁄2 cup Dutch cocoa Dash or two of salt

To make frappé:

Put a couple handfuls of ice in a blender. Add 1⁄2 cup of half & half. Pour in 1⁄2 cup of mix. Blend on high until

Tips from Rita’s kitchen

• Non-alkalized, or natural, which is the traditional type. • Dutch/alkalized has a milder taste, reduced acidity and is somewhat redder in color. • Special dark is a blend of the two.

Clermont County fair was good this year Howdy folks, The fair is over and it was a good one. The three Grange booths were put in Saturday morning. The Monroe Grange booth was put in by Bob and Bonnie, the Pomona by Ruth Ann, George, Linda, Bonnie and Bob. The Junior Grangers booth had items from 18 different kids. Ruth Ann and Bonnie are the leaders with a couple of wonderful helpers. They do a fine job with these kids age 5 to 14. Three of the juniors helped with the booth. The attendance Monday was really a full house with the children getting to ride free with the parents purchasing tickets. This was great. The livestock was big with goats, sheep, cattle, pigs, rabbits and chickens. The 4-H children sure spent a lot of time with their ani-

mals. The fairgrounds were as clean as I can remember. The fair directors George have done a Rooks super job Ole and are to be Fisherman thanked. The new horse barn for the horses that the Friends of the Fair built was great and the folks who used it sure appreciate the building. The tractor and truck pulls were exciting with a full grandstand on both sides of the track, and the folks who got the track ready sure did a fine job. The Grant’s Farm kept the flowers beautiful on the grounds. Saturday evening the demolition derby was well

attended. Our grandsons were in the pit crew for a feller from Felicity. The crowd always enjoy watching the cars getting beat up. Ruth Ann and I were in the historical booth. At 7 p.m. the items could be taken out of the Floral Hall – the crafts, flowers, art and produce – so I went over there. The folks who were in charge of this did a wonderful job. We got several ribbons with our produce and crafts. It is always a joy to be involved in the fair and take part in different activities. When we closed the historical booth the demolition derby was over and the crowd was leaving. The traffic was a long line. This was the smoothest I have ever seen getting people out of the fairgrounds. The folks who parked the cars in the infield were so polite and helpful again this year. The

fair was a huge success thanks to everyone who helped. The other morning as we were getting up, Dixie was on the rail outside the bedroom window meowing, so I let him in. He wanted his breakfast, so I said go get Ruth Ann up, and by golly he went in and meowed so she would get up. The garden is doing good with plenty of ripe tomatoes, cucumbers, squash and the cranberry beans are starting to ripen. The last patch of green beans are growing good. We are going to Grants Farm to get cabbage and broccoli plants to set out for fall. Now the time seems to be flying. Fall will be here pretty quickly. We also will plant spinach, peas and set out cauliflower plants, plant more onion sets for fall green onions and other plants.

Friends are important at all ages My husband and I have a couple of friends who we double-dated with in high school. They still live in Louisville where we grew up. We don’t see each other often, but we consider them close friends. One reason for that is because of the history. We know so much about each other and we are more like family than friends. We know each other’s position on religion, politics, education and NCAA basketball. We’ve been through marriages, births and deaths, and grandchildren together. And we’ve cared for and lost aging parents. By the way, our parents were friends with each other, too. Since we moved to Milford nearly 17 years ago, we have made new friends. We don’t know as much about each other’s history, but these newer friends are just as important to us. For one thing, they’re here. We see them often at church, we go out to dinner or we just get together for coffee. We constantly learn new things about each other and enjoy sharing stories of our past. Having them nearby provides a sense of security. I have found new friendships mature quickly. Friends are people we know and trust. They are special to us socially and emotionally because they are our favorite companions and confidants.

Friendships are important at any age of life, but especially as we grow older. We Linda have more Eppler time for relaCommunity t i o n s h i p s friends Press and contribute to Guest the quality Columnist of life. They give us a sense of belonging and a secure feeling of not being alone. Our expectations of longterm friends and short-term friends are different. With long-term friends we reminisce about things we did long ago. Life changes such as health, widowhood and retirement have less effect on long-term friendships. Short-term friendships help us deal with changes that affect our daily roles, such as moving, volunteering or starting a new job. Adults expect emotional support and companionship from friends. In times of crisis, we need them in our lives; and we want to help them, also. Studies have shown people who enjoy the fellowship of friends live longer and are healthier than those who are socially isolated. From younger, healthy adults to older, at-risk senior

citizens, all need to spend time with other people. For some, senior centers serve as an avenue to meet new people and form new friendships. Studies have shown that socialization improves the quality of life and independence of older people. Senior centers provide a place to gather and share thoughts, knowledge and skills; a nucleus of energy for strengthening friendships and sharing one’s talents. Senior centers provide social, learning, recreational and wellness activities as well as sightseeing trips, shopping trips, parties and holiday activities. Some centers offer art, computer and exercise classes – and much more. One lady commented, “It’s a wonderful group of people. I don’t know what I would have done without the center when I was left widowed. I feel like it saved my life.” Clermont Senior Services operates eight centers in Clermont County. There is probably one near you. If you are an older adult and would like to try new things and meet new people, call Jeanne Siegel, manager of the Lifelong Learning Centers, at 947-7333. She will be glad to share information on programs and send you a calendar of monthly activities, as well

Our potato crop was good. We are so blessed with the garden items. Now we are watering some of the beds. We have one bed I built this summer for beets that Ruth Ann planted. There are three watermelon plants that have come up and of course are taking over the entire bed which is OK. We have another bed of beets. Mike at the Boars Head Bait Shop in Afton reported the crappie are biting good

with a few at 9 inches. The catfish are doing good along with the bass and stripers. Start your week by going to the church of your choice and praise the Good Lord. God bless all. More later.

Residents send packages overseas

SEM Haven residents had the idea to send packages to men and women serving overseas. They began getting names of relatives and friends of those who live or work at SEM Haven. It became very personal and meaningful to recognize someone they know, rather than someone anonymous. Resident Betty Shoup packs a box for her nephew, Bill Spicer, who is stationed in Afghanistan. Louise Schehr watches. They plan to continue sending packages monthly with donations from staff and family members.

Plan to attend one of four free per-

UC Clermont students ‘Pay It Forward

Students in Instructor Barbara Wallace’s “Writing, Philanthropy, and Student Engagement” class awarded $4,500 to Greater Cincinnati non-profit organizations recently, as a culmination of a course designed to enhance students’ understanding of civic issues in the community. Using Paul Loeb’s Soul of a Citizen as a background text, the service learning class studied the theme of “at-risk” youth. In addition to grant writing and tutoring at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Clermont County, the class conducted research into the factors that put children at risk, and each student was asked to profile an area non-profit organization that served at-risk youth. At the end of the course, the students were able to vote on which agencies they believed would be best served by receiving money from a “Paying It Forward” grant, sponsored by the University of Cincinnati, in collaboration with Ohio Campus Compact. Wallace’s class voted to award three area non-profits $1,500 each: • The Boys & Girls Clubs of Clermont County were awarded $1,500 to use in their “Fun in the Sun” summer program that will provide safety, supervision, educational experiences and food for about 120 at-risk youth in Clermont County over the summer months when school is not in session. • Lighthouse Youth Services was awarded $1,500 for a summer camp for abused, neglected and homeless boys. Andrea Granieri, development assistant at LYS, expects 15 boys to attend the camp. • Child Focus was awarded $1,500 to purchase toys and games that can be used in their therapeutic mentoring program.

executive director of the Cincinnati Nature Center. “Research indicates that unstructured play in nature increases self-esteem, motor skills, fitness and academic performance. However due to a number of reasons, today’s children are spending significantly less time playing in nature than any other generation.” Hopple and Dr. Victoria Carr, associate professor and director of Arlitt Child and Family Research and Education Center at University of Cincinnati, will give keynote speeches. As special guests, children will participate in the groundbreaking event with their own tools and hard hats.

The nature playscape is designed to provide children with opportunities for unstructured play in a resilient version of local natural habitats. A natural playscape is made up of native plants, fallen logs, boulders, rocks, water and soil to create a forest and field habitat for children to explore. Research shows a child exposed to the outdoor world earlier will develop a lifelong commitment and appreciation for nature. For more information, attend the groundbreaking ceremony or visit l.

Cookies greetings

This year Girl Scout Troop 46513 out of Meadowview Elementary in Milford led by Sheelah Parker collected more than 30 boxes of donated Girl Scout cookies as part of their community service project. The girls wrapped each box in cheerful colors and bright ribbons. The cookies were delivered to the patients, families and nurses of the VITAS Hospice inpatient unit at the Drake Hospital. The project was an effort at making a tough and lonely time a little more happy. The patients and families were able to pick their favorite cookies and spend a few minutes with the kids. The hugs let the girls know they made an impact. From left are Emily Geise, Casey Broxterman and Cub Scout Matthew Broxterman.
