Veterans memorial unveiled By Mary Dannemiller

Local Korean War veterans gathered at the Clermont County Administration Building Thursday, Sept. 16, to hear the details of a memorial which will honor them and other soldiers who died during that conflict. The memorial will be built in a a section of Miami Meadows Park in Miami Township and will feature a 12-foot-by-5-foot granite laser etching of a photograph veteran Bill Knepp took during the war on top of a hill in Korea. Boulders will be placed on the hill, which is meant to honor a battleground from the war called Old Baldy, Knepp said.

Auction to help Senior Services

More than 300 people were on hand at Receptions Eastgate Friday, Sept. 10, to bid on items at the Clermont Senior Services Art, Antiques & Collectibles Auction. George Brown, executive director of Clermont Senior Services, said it was the largest crowd ever for the 11th annual event. FULL STORY AND PHOTOS, B1



The proposed Korean War Memorial for Miami Meadows Park in Miami Township.

“This is a long time coming,” said Korean War veteran Leo Riehle of Goshen Township, who served in the Army there in 1952 and 1953. “I think it’s a good thing.” Knepp teamed up with veterans Robert Sterling of Miami Township and R.J. Vilardo of Milford to form the Korean War Veterans 1950-1953 United and the group has been busy planning the monument. “We’ve waited 60 years for this and we’re so proud this is coming to the Miami Township,” he said. “One of the reasons why we wanted to do it here is we wanted a place where (thousands of) people are known to pass through on the weekends.” The memorial will eventually be part of a larger area called the Spirit of ’76 Memorial Garden and Arboretum built to honor veterans from many wars, Knepp said. Miami Township Trustee Mary Makley Wolff said she was happy the group chose Miami Township as the location for the monument and memorial garden. “We get a lot of requests to do memorials and this is a perfect addition to a really special place in the park,” she said. “I want to thank Bill for bringing it to our attention and we’re very proud


Korean War veterans Robert Sterling, left, and R.J. Vilardo, right, talk about the proposed Korean War memorial for Miami Meadows Park Thursday, Sept. 16. that the community will have space to honor our fallen soldiers.” Though the group is accepting donations for the project, Knepp said government funding and taxpayer money will not be used. “We want no money from taxpayers whatsoever,” he said. “We’re not talking about the cost because the price has already been paid.”

Donations can be mailed to the National Bank & Trust Co., M.G.P.A. Korean Memorial, 715 Lila Ave., Milford. A groundbreaking ceremony for the Korean War memorial is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 23, at Miami Meadows Park, 1546 Ohio 131.

Inside millage move won’t raise taxes By Mary Dannemiller

The Milford board of education unanimously voted Thursday, Sept. 16, to move 0.5-mills from the district’s general fund to the capital improvement fund, but the move won’t raise taxes. “There will be no increase in property taxes,” said Treasurer Randy Seymour. “We’re simply taking it from the general fund

(and) putting in another fund, which really limits how the board can spend it. It can only be spent on capital improvements on the buildings and grounds.” Superintendent Bob Farrell said the district is required by law to set aside a half mill for maintenance of buildings built with state funds. “In order to be eligible to receive state money, we have to

set aside 0.5-mills to take care of those buildings,” he said. “There might be some confusion because some districts have moved inside millage and property taxes have increased, but this is different. We’re just taking the millage and reserving it. It has no impact on the amount of taxes you pay.” Board of education member Debbie Marques also assured residents their taxes will not increase.

“It’s a matter of where the money is,” she said. “Right now, it’s in the general fund and we’re moving it to our permanent improvement fund to be specifically used for maintenance and upkeep of our buildings.” The next Milford Board of Education meeting will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 21, at McCormick Elementary School, 751 Loveland-Miamiville Road.

Kids Against Hunger moves to Miami Twp. By Mary Dannemiller

Kids Against Hunger has moved its Cincinnati chapter from Blue Ash to Molly Lane in Miami Township. The organization is run mostly by volunteers who pack meals for starving children all over the world. Their new location is at 848 Molly Lane in a building which formerly housed a Thriftway grocery store. “We were operating out of a Kroger store in Blue Ash which had been very graciously loaned to us by the Kroger Co.,” executive director Larry Bergeron said. “Kroger was paying the lease and enabling us to stay there, but given the current economic conditions it was not practical for Kroger to continue the lease and we had to relocate.”

The Miami Township Police Department has charged two juveniles with vandalism to township property at Miami Meadows Park after they were caught in the act by Police Officer Brent Higgins. Higgins was patrolling the



park at 10:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 4, when he noticed evidence of vandalism, Police Chief Steve Bailey said. Higgins continued looking around the park and discovered two male juveniles attempting to break out a security light with a handi-

cap parking sign that they had torn down, Bailey said. The officer arrested both juveniles and later found they had also smashed mirrors in the rest rooms, torn the privacy panels off the wall between toilets and turned an ice machine

upside down, Bailey said. Both teens were charged with criminal damaging. Miami Township Police are continuing to investigate to see if this incident is related to a similar offense which occurred in the park Friday, Aug. 20.

Wheelchair ramp built for Milford residents By Mary Dannemiller


Milford resident Bill Dishon and his dog, Sugi, far right, were joined by representatives from Clermont Senior Services and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati Tuesday, Sept. 14, while volunteers built a wheelchair ramp for his wife Carolyn. From left are, in front: Julie Doerger, Helen Fisher and Lee Ann Wildey. In back: Jeff Reynolds and George Brown.


This is the wheelchair ramp being built by Clermont County Habitat for Humanity and Clermont County Senior Services volunteers for Milford residents Bill and Carolyn Dishon. The Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati is sponsoring the project.

For the past several years, Bill Dishon has carried his wheelchair-bound wife Carolyn out of their house, down the steep front walk and into the car every time she’s needed to go somewhere. Thanks to a donation from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati and the hard work of Clermont Senior Services, Dishon will no longer have to carry his wife. Volunteers have been busy building a wheelchair ramp in front of the couple’s Milford house for the last two weeks. “It’s wonderful,� Dishon said. “My wife is in the hospital right now and I can’t wait to get her out so she can see it. It will make quite a bit of difference in our lives.� Before the ramp, Dishon called his brother-in-law several times a week to help take Carolyn to doctor’s appointments, he said. The bank was able to pay for the ramp with

money from the Carol M. Peterson Housing Fund, which was created to honor Peterson, a senior vice president with the bank who passed away earlier this year, said bank spokesman John Byczkowski. “Some people need help and we have the resources we can provide to help get things done that they wouldn’t have been able to get done themselves,� said Jeff Reynolds, the bank’s senior vice president of housing and community investment. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for us to show what we can do.� Helen Fisher, an intake coordinator for Clermont Senior Services, helped the Dishons apply for the grant money. “Mr. Dishon has needed this for years,� she said. “They’ll be a lot more mobile now and it won’t be such a struggle when she goes out.� For more information about the Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati’s wheelchair ramp program, visit

Miami Twp. officer almost hit by teen fleeing from party The Miami Township Police department has filed a number of charges against eight people as a result of underage drinking discovered by police Sunday, Sept. 5. “This incident very nearly ended in tragedy after one of the suspects almost ran over one of our police officers,� Miami Township Police Chief Steve Bailey said. Police charged Zeth Hayes, 19, 3621 Carpenter Road, with failure to comply, drug abuse, underage

consumption and operating a motor vehicle while impaired. “Hayes saw police arrive at the party and tried to flee in his auto. When Officer Terry Eshman directed him to stop, he sideswiped Eshman and knocked his flashlight from his hand,� Bailey said. “Hayes then crashed his car into a speed limit sign, a utility pole and then a ditch. Fortunately Officer Eshman was not injured,� Bailey said. Neither Hayes nor his passenger were injured in the crash.

Police were called to 5368 Country Lane by neighbors at 4:11 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 5, to investigate a loud party where it was reported juveniles were drinking, Bailey said. Police found a number of youth outside the residence in the yard and driveway. Some tried to hide from police, but were quickly discovered, Bailey said. Police found underage drinking and possession of marijuana. In addition to the charges against Hayes, charges

were filed against three minors and the following adults: Andrew Stevenson, 23, 669 Fountains Blvd., West Chester Township, drug possession; Michael Gerald, 21, 290 Redbird Drive, Loveland, drug possession; James Berwanger, 19, 4815 Long Acres Court, Cincinnati, underage consumption, and John Kreta, 18, 218 Oakwood Drive, Milford, underage consumption.

All four speakers addressed the importance of thanking and appreciating local heroes as well as military heroes. “Our local emergency

services (personnel) protect our safety while our military protects our freedom,� Proud said. “When was the last time you thanked a police officer for writing you a ticket? They might have saved your life.� The speakers also took time to remember those were killed Sept. 11, 2001, and in the subsequent events. Cooper asked if everyone remembered where they were on that morning. “I just can’t fathom anyone ever forgetting that day ... Never forget that,� he said.

picnic. Along with other local historians, I am always happy to show off our cabin and museum. As a mealson-wheels volunteer, it will be good to see those who are still able to get out and enjoy a great day with their friends with good food and fellowship,” Shipley said. Shipley and Freeman both said the hope the picnic will become an annual event. Reservations are limited. Seniors should RSVP with Officer Crockett at 7321171. Bus transportation is limited and must be scheduled through the Clermont Senior Services transportation department by calling 536-4115. Deadline is Wednesday, Sept. 22.

The week at Goshen



Milford running back Nathan Termuhlen carries the ball against Woodward. Termuhlen is one of the scoring leaders in the city and had four touchdowns against Woodward.

The Milford High School football team dropped an early game to Kings 38-18 in week two but outside of that, the Eagles have scored more than 50 points in each of their three other games, all Milford wins. The latest coming at home on Sept. 17 against Woodward 52-22. One reason for Milford’s early success has been the play of the offensive line and senior running back Nathan Termuhlen. Termuhlen leads the FAVC in rushing with 622 yards and he is one of the city leaders in touchdowns with 15 through the first four weeks of the season. The Milford playmaker has been averaging 155 yards per game and is averaging more than eight yards per carry. Termuhlen had 145 rushing yards against Woodward and had an astounding six touchdowns. Milford has also had strong play on offense from senior quarterback Frank Sullivan. Sullivan’s 597 passing yards puts him as one of the leaders in the FAVC. Sullivan didn’t have any touchdown passes against Woodward, but he did run in one score and he caught another touchdown pass on a trick play. Milford has the secondranked offense in the FAVC and the fifth-ranked defense. Shawn Taylor has been another playmaker for Milford and has four touchdowns on the season. The

Games against Glen Este, Anderson and Winton Woods follow. Milford will really find out what type of a team the Eagles have as they are tested against some of the best teams in the area.

Goshen, CNE: A tale of 2 teams

By Nick Dudukovich

Goshen High School picked up its first win of the season Sept. 17 by defeating rival Clermont Northeastern Rockets 20-12 at CNE. The game featured two teams heading in opposite directions in the standings. At 3-0, CNE was looking to add another victory to what could be a potential playoff season. Across the sidelines, Goshen was still searching to add its first win to the victory column. Warriors head coach Nick Inabnitt was pleased to get the squad’s first win because he knows how much it meant to his players. “This is a huge win for us because CNE is an undefeated football team,” Inabnitt said. “Our kids fought hard the same way they’ve done all year long.” The win marks a triumph for Warriors’ players, who have been plagued with health troubles and who in August, witnessed the serious injury of teammate Eric Coleman. “That does a lot to your psyche and puts things into perspective, and all of a sudden football takes a back seat to things,” Inabnitt said. With Coleman recovering, the Warriors have shifted focus back on trying to win football games. At 1-3, Inabnitt still believes the Warriors can make a run at the postsea-

Jamie Ashcraft, who started at quarterback for the Warriors against CNE, will continue to be under center for the Warriors because he provides a spark to the offense, according to Inabnitt. Ashcraft also hopes his team can play with a high intensity for an entire game, rather than for a quarter or half. After leading 20-0 over CNE at halftime, the Warriors let the Rockets back into the game by allowing two touchdowns. It is the first time the Warriors were outscored in the second half, according to Inabnitt. “We started off with pas-

sion and we to need to complete games with more passion,” he said. With the loss, CNE falls to 3-1 and battles New Richmond on Sept. 24. Rockets’ coach Charlie Carpenter was disappointed with the loss, but proud of his team’s effort. “We can’t drop our heads,” he said. “We were behind 20 points in the first quarter but the kids never quit and we kept fighting back. We’ve just got to execute better against New Richmond.” The Rockets have demonstrated the ability to hang around games. After trailing 14-6 at halftime of the season opener to Cincinnati Country Day, the Rockets were able to prevail 1914 with a late fourth quarter touchdown. “Never giving up,” is a trait that is ingrained in

CNE’s players, according to Carpenter. “It shows the character of our team,” he said. “Our kids are tough, we’re not very big, but we’re tough and our kids will never quit. As a coach, that’s all you can ask for.” The Rockets will also continue to rely on running backs Jacob Hacker and Aaron Wright throughout the remainder of the season. Hacker has rushed for 382 and four touchdowns, while Wright has rushed for 108 yards and one touchdown. While CNE is still on top of the Southern Buckeye Athletic and Academic Conference, Carpenter doesn’t want to speculate on the Rockets’ playoff chances. “We’re taking it one game at a time,” he said.

Milford seeks water polo success By Nick Dudukovich

The Milford High School boys’ water polo team has state final-four aspirations. If the squad is to make it that far, it will mark the third time in three years a Milford team has played in a semi-final match. The Eagles even won the state championship in 2008. Now, with a record of 98 and the season approaching the half-way point, Mil-

ford assistant coach Paul Splitt hopes to make a long run into the postseason. Although the team’s record may not be indicative of state championship team, Splitt doesn’t want the wins and loss column to fool anybody. Four of the Eagles’ defeats came at the hands of Columbus St. Charles Preparatory School, a top-ranked team in the state, according to Splitt. “The record is deceiving because we’ve played the No. 1 ranked team in Ohio


Milford’s David Matulis has been a key contributor for the squad this season.

four times,” Splitt said. In the most recent match on Sept. 11, Milford took St. Charles into overtime and eventually lost 5-3. The loss was a silent victory for the Eagles, who lost by an average of seven goals during the first three matches of the year against the central-Ohio based school. Despite the loses to St. Charles, Splitt believes Milford has what it takes to reign as one of Ohio’s top water polo teams. The Eagles are led by senior co-captain Connor Litmer (attacker). Litmer played and scored a goal as a freshman in the championship game two years ago. Clark McCloud, one of Milford’s other captains, is also making significant contributions toward the team’s success, according to Splitt. McCloud, who also plays lacrosse, has a championship and leadership pedigree that will help Milford in its march toward the playoffs, according to Splitt.

“He’s been around leaders and has been part of a championship lacrosse team,” Splitt said. “He’s seen what works and what doesn’t.” On the other end of the pool, goalie Nick Brown has been a valuable asset, Splitt said. “He hates to be scored on,” Splitt said. “He doesn’t want to get beat and he wants to prepare himself so he doesn’t (get scored on).” Splitt said the team is getting valuable contributions from junior Dave Matulis (attacker). As an upperclassman, Matulis had to take on a new role as a primary shooter, according to Splitt. The coach added that when Matulis and Litmer are at the peak of their games, Milford is a tough team to beat. “Those two guys can play any positions,” he said. “When we need a shot, we look to Connor and David. They are our strongest play-


Junior Connor Litmer has been a standout for Milford this season and was part of the school’s 2008 championship team. ers.” With the collection of talented juniors, Splitt believes Milford’s hopes for a long postseason could become a reality. The Eagles already caught the Ohio water polo world’s attention when it became the first team in seven years to make it to the final four in back-toback years. “History is on their side,” Splitt said. “They have experience playing at a high

level and they do a lot of things outside the regular season that helps them out.” Splitt added that really good water polo teams play year round and that Milford players have taken notice. “It’s hard to get these guys to stop playing water polo,” Splitt said. “We are getting to a point now where these kids are doing water polo things all year long.”

Took my breath away

I used to think “and it took my breath away” was an adage, but it happened to me. Fortunately and thankfully I am indebted and thank Miami Township Fire and EMS members for giving breath back to me through their expertise of training, knowledge and expedient response on an emergency call to my home. Thank you Mike Holloway and Keith Workman and members of the entire squad and their association. I am appreciative and obliged to each of you. I have lived in Miami Township for much of my life and have always sung praises for our dedicated rescuers for their response to others ... this time was especially meaningful to me. To them ... my “heartfelt” thanks. God bless this association and God bless America. Kay Mollenkopf Grill Miami Township

Support group now forming



Editor Theresa Herron | | 248-7128

If you would like to take part in a support group now forming for those with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome or chronic pain or their loved ones, e-mail Cyndi Ellis at Ellis, whose husband, Patrick, has RSD, is working to form the group due to a lack of one in the area, she said.







Many of you know I’ve been involved with the Clermont County 4-H program since I was 9. After graduating from high school, I continued my involvement by helping my Mom with my old club, the Sew ’n’ Sews. We later renamed the name to the Shooting Stars because so many of our members were boys and they didn’t sew anything. I believe 4-H is a great organization for parents who want to give their kids something else to do, other than sports. I’m a big sports fan, so I’m not putting down sports here. No, 4-H is another activity available for kids that is fun – and if you aren’t careful, you’ll learn something along the way. My 4-H agent was Patti Louiso of Williamsburg. I don’t have enough space to list all the things my friends and I learned in 4-H, a lot of it with Patti leading the way. Thank you. Four-H will be 100 years old in 2015. And it was born right here in Ohio, in Clark County, by A.B. Graham, who wanted an organization that would give rural kids something to do while not in school each summer. Those humble beginnings spread across the country and world. To celebrate, 4-H members young and old are asking mem-

bers of Congress to sponsor and support legislation authorizing commemorative coins to honor this anniversary. The legislation is expected to be Theresa L. introduced this Herron month and would authorize the U.S. Editor’s Mint to produce Notebook special collector versions of up to 500,000 silver dollars and up to 750,000 copper-nickel half dollars with designs including the 4-H emblem. Do you know 4-H has 60 million alumni across the country? That’s a lot of voting power. An estimated 518,000 volunteers help lead young people through a variety of projects each year. Only two commemorative coin programs can be authorized each year. It is wise to give the program support now so it can be one of the programs authorized for 2015, and that discussion starts this month.

Support United Way and improve lives Sometimes, it’s just the ordinary tests of daily life that challenge us. Like making sure a parent gets to cancer treatment or that a family gets the assistance needed to remain in their home. At other times, life hands you a crisis, and a phone call may be the first step to finding a solution. That’s when we realize how important services like United Way 211 really are. Last year, United Way 211, which connects people with services and volunteer opportunities, received more than 6,181 calls for help from people in Clermont and Brown counties. This was an increase of 39 percent, a direct reflection of the economic challenges facing so many. Many of those seeking help were doing so for the first time in their lives. With your support, United Way works every day to create opportunities for a better life for all in our region by focusing on the building blocks for that better life – education, income and health. In the health area alone, United Way is a critical partner for many in our community, investing in services like the specialized medical transportation and home care provided by Clermont Senior Services.

United Way’s commitment to improving lives in our community means we all have a role to play. We recruit people and organizations who Kerry Byrne bring the passion, and Community expertise resources needed Press guest to get things columnist done. And, as a good steward of your donation, United Way expects maximum performance and measurable results to ensure progress. For example, in 2009: • More than 2,470 children participated in quality-rated United Way-funded early care and education programs for at least six months. • About 97 percent of youth in United Way-funded academicfocused youth programs achieved grade promotion. • 1,738 participants in job readiness programs obtained employment. Reports indicate that 50% of participants retain their jobs for at least one year; • More than 6,000 seniors engaged in services that ensured

protection from abuse and neglect. • Nearly 8,700 people with disabilities received social rehabilitation, career and employment, and related services. It takes everyone in this community working together to create a brighter future. Together, we can accomplish more than any single group can on its own. That’s what it means to LIVE UNITED. I hope you’ll join me in Living United this year through a contribution to the annual campaign. While many residents in our region will have the opportunity to make a contribution through their employer, those outside the workplace can still make a contribution to United Way. Visit to make a gift online now, or contact us directly at 513-536-3000. Together, we can advance the common good and create opportunities for a better life for all in our region. United Way, and you, will make our community even greater for generations to come. Kerry Byrne is the executive vice president of Total Quality Logistics. He also serves as the 2010 campaign chair for United Way of Greater Cincinnati-Eastern Area.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question:

What do you miss most about pre-recession life? “My investment portfolio, my retirement plan and mostly the lack of fear that I’ll have to keep working until I’m 75 just to afford the state-run home they’re going to put me in when the bank forecloses on my house! ‘Nuff said!!!” M.M. “What do I miss most about pre-recession life? The anxiety produced by the choice I make for health coverage each year as a retiree. “I thought it was bad, but it’s nothing like what I anticipate later in the year when I wlll have to

choose again for one more year. In spite of the complexity of the whole thing, and the uncertainty about which choice would be best, it wasn’t as bad as it’s gonna be this year after The Messiah’s Health Care Plan has been enacted.” B.B. “Not gasping when I see the tab at Nicolas Restaraunt.” J.Z. “Two years ago both my son and my son-in-law had secure, well-paying jobs (we thought). In that span of time both lost their jobs, got unemployment, then found new, lower-paying jobs with no seniority.

The Greater Milford Area Historical Society’s annual fundraiser, the Art Affaire, was another hit – Saturday, Sept. 11, at the Promont House Museum. More booths, including a textile booth from the New Richmond Alpaca Farm, were on site this year and a flower show was held inside the museum. All money raised will be used for the society’s annual scholarship as well as operating funds.

Meridian Mark Language Services Partner Madonna Kohnen helped start the business almost two years ago.

Meridian Mark breaks barriers By Kellie Geist

For a business looking to communicate with an ethnic employee or expand into a global market, a language or culture barrier can be a big deal. There’s when Meridian Mark Language Services can help. Meridian Mark in Miami Township can help companies with translation (written word) and interpretation (spoken word.) Company partner Madonna Kohnen said accurate communication is important for a company in all aspects of business. “It is absolutely critical. If you have a language or culture barrier, crucial information can be missed,” she said. Meridian Mark has two staff linguists specializing in Spanish and access to linguists in 150 other languages. But the people Meridian Mark works with are not just people who can speak multiple languages. The company works with linguists who are knowledgeable about foreign culture as well as business topics, such as human resources or sales, Kohnen said. Mireille Chartrand, a French Canadian translator, said working with Kohnen is a pleasure because she understands the importance of quality language services. “Sometimes translations made by automating software doesn’t make sense. It’s important to have a person do the translations and

Madonna understands that,” she said. Chartrand, who is a freelance linguist, also said local companies should use local language services for quality control. Meridian Mark launched in January 2009 and has been doing well. Kohnen said the company experiences 15 or 20 percent growth each month. “(Language service) isn’t something a lot of people have thought about,” Kohnen said. “In the beginning, it was a challenge, but it caught on quickly. We knew a lot of people in business, so it’s really taken off.” The language company works with anyone within 300 miles, so they have a number of clients in Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Chicago and Kentucky. Most of the clients are medium to large businesses. Kohnen said companies use Meridian Mark not only for person-to-person translations and interpretations, but also writing, editing and desktop publishing for human resources paperwork, marketing material and more. She said the personal, quality touch is what sets Meridian Mark apart in this unique field. “We treat every customer as if they are our only client,” she said. “We do everything we can to make sure they are more than satisfied. It’s about having a partnership.” For more information about Meridian Mark Language Services, visit or call 575-7676.


Jim and Nancy Parker of Stonelick Township hold the Americana quilt they donated for the Clermont Seniors’ Art, Antiques, and Collectibles Auction Sept. 10.

Auction benefits Clermont Senior Services More than 300 people were on hand at Receptions Eastgate Friday, Sept. 10, to bid on items at the Clermont Senior Services Art, Antiques & Collectibles Auction. George Brown, executive director of Clermont Senior Services, said it was the largest crowd ever for the 11th annual event. The event included silent and live auctions. The live auction was conducted by auctioneer Joel T. Wilson with assistance from the father and son team of David P. Lewis and David S. Lewis. All proceeds from the auction benefit the programs of Clermont Senior Services. Debbie Siegroth, development director for Clermont Senior Services, said preliminary figures indicate the auction brought in more than $36,000. One of the live auction highlights was the Americana quilt donated by Jim and Nancy Parker of Stonelick Township. They recently attended the Hachstetler Amish Auction with one thing in mind – to bid on something they could donate to the annual auction. “Jim asked me to mark

Lewis holds up a wooden pitchfork being auctioned Sept. 10 at the Clermont Senior Services Art, Antiques & Collectibles Auction. the quilts I wanted him to bid on,” said Nancy. “When I saw the Americana quilt, I knew it was the perfect one for the auction. It is red, white and blue with a beautiful Lone Star pattern. This county has lost so many to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, this quilt was just what we were looking for. The proceeds will benefit our seniors here in Clermont County, many of whom are veterans.” Nancy is a member of the auction committee, while Jim is a former CSS board of trustees member and chair.

How do I know I’m making the right decision? “prude,” or is misunderstood as b e i n g ultra-cautious or a nambyp a m b y Father Lou afraid to Guntzelman take risks. P r u Perspectives dence has been valued for a long time – prized in the Hellenistic and Roman cultures, as well as in Chinese Confucianism. St. Thomas Aquinas calls prudence the virtue that enables us to do the right thing at the right time. It’s impossible, but who wouldn’t like to be able to do that? That’s because life is complex, relationships require many sensitive decisions, raising children is fraught with balancing love and discipline, and in legal and business decisions the mental dexterity required is mind-boggling. It is not easy to always know what to do. Prudence doesn’t demand we be infallible, but that we put forth effort. Imprudence complicates lives and brings misery to our door. What are some factors to help us become more prudent in our decisions? 1) Be inquisitive enough to gather all the facts and various sides of the issue involved. Half-truths leave us half-informed. 2) Know ourselves well.

To sift the gold of understanding from the gravel of impulse is a great endeavor. It would be nice if we could do this with ease all our lives. Some of our decisions are imprudent because we don’t realize how often we decide matters based only on our emotions and not on the facts. We must know when to trust our thoughts and emotions and when not to. 3) Do some “damn good thinking.” Reason logically, be honest, weigh solid moral principles and what is genuinely good for our self as well as others involved. One theologian described prudence as “the vigilant eye of love.” 4) Our greatest enemies are apathy, fear and selfishness. Apathy leads us to avoid decisions we personally need to make with the attitude of, “Who cares? Let somebody else decide.” Fear brings extreme caution, timidity in making decisions, or taking an unreasonable amount of time to make them. It can also lead us to dread displeasing others – so we conform to what others think is to be decided. Selfishness and pride can delude our minds into thinking, “I have all the answers so why take the time to think deeply or discuss it with others?” “Why consider in my conscience what God might want?” 5) If necessary, be open to seek advice from some-

one competent whose wisdom we trust. They cannot make our decision for us but they may be able to help us

have greater confidence in the validity of our reasoning. Today many people seem to decide, even about important issues, on the basis of minimal information, few values, and little in-depth thinking. Short slogans and spin experts do

our thinking for us. Bye, bye, prudence! Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@ or P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242.

We learn how to walk by doing a lot of stumbling and falling. We learn how to make good choices in life also by stumbling and falling. Eventually we learn how to do it more effectively, but never perfectly. Making choices, great or small, is a constant requisite of living. To sift the gold of understanding from the gravel of impulse is a great endeavor. It would be nice if we could do this with ease all our lives. But our challenges change across the years from youth to old age. And besides, the circumstances are always a little different each time. So we wind up asking ourselves many times over our lives about decisions concerning our relationships, childrearing, business decisions, etc., “How do I know I’m doing the right thing?” What we’re really talking about here is the virtue of prudence. Former Yale University chaplain and senior minister of Riverside Church put it this way: “The first of our four cardinal virtues of the Roman Catholic Church is ‘prudentia,’ which basically means damn good thinking. Christ came to take away our sins, not our minds.” Prudence demands a mental struggle. It involves thinking, reasoning, weighing, understanding – and in general much wisdom. Prudence is seldom referred to today. Perhaps it sounds too much like

No-cook banana pudding has great ‘a-peel’

Yesterday I took dinner to a friend who was ill. I wanted to bring a dessert for the family along with the meal but didn’t have a lot of time, so I decided to make banana pudding. Now usually I make the pudding from scratch, like a pastry cream, but that wasn’t going to happen yesterday. So I carried in my nobake version and it was a huge hit. Here’s the recipe for you to try.

My mom’s no-cook best banana puddin’

The “mom” in the title is me. This heirloom recipe is an easy dessert that the little ones can help with, and

it tastes so good. Y o u can double this recipe for a 9 by13 pan. If you double the Rita recipe, use Heikenfeld the larger Rita’s kitchen box (5 oz. or so) of pudding. I put mine in a smaller casserole dish.

4 oz. cream cheese, softened 1 ⁄2 cup sweetened condensed milk (this is half of the 14 oz. can – freeze leftover milk 3.5 oz. package instant

vanilla pudding 11⁄2 cups milk 1 tablespoon vanilla 2 cups whipping cream, sweetened to taste*, whipped, and divided or 12 to 16 oz. whipped topping, thawed 3 ripe bananas, sliced About half a box of vanilla wafers

Put cream cheese and condensed milk in mixer and blend well. Whisk pudding mix into milk and vanilla and blend until smooth. Add to cream cheese mixture. Blend well and fold in half the whipped cream or half the whipped topping. Make layers in casserole dish: Vanilla wafers, bananas, and the pudding on top. Refrigerate at least one hour before serving or up to eight hours. Garnish with whipped cream and more wafers. *To sweeten whipping cream: Stir in 1⁄4 cup powdered sugar or more to taste before whipping.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen:

• Sprinkle cocoa powder or shaved chocolate on top. • Stir in a couple handfuls of coconut into the pudding. • Make individual ones in wine glasses.

Noodles Romanoff

For Ginny. This is a twist on an old favorite. 3 cups noodles, boiled and kept hot 1 cup cottage cheese 1 cup sour cream

Mix all ingredients except cheddar. Place in greased or sprayed 8-by-8 square baking dish. Sprinkle with cheddar. Bake 25 to 35 minutes.

Vegetarian black beans and rice

For the fellow who loves Skyline’s vegetarian black beans and rice. I hope he likes this. I might toss in a shake or two of chili powder, too.

1 cup rice 2 cans black beans, drained, rinsed and drained 1 medium to large onion, diced 2 large cloves garlic, minced 1 ⁄2 to 1 teaspoon cumin 1 ⁄2 teaspoon oregano or to taste Salt to taste Cayenne pepper to taste or chopped jalapeño to taste Optional garnishes: cilantro, chopped tomato, lime juice, cheese Cook rice according to package directions. While rice is cooking, sauté onion and garlic in a bit of olive oil. Add beans, cumin and oregano. Cook until heated through. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix with rice. Garnish as desired.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with Foundation Bank of Cincinnati to assume all deposits of Bramble Savings Bank, according to a press release from the FDIC. The bank reopened as Foundation Bank Saturday, Sept. 18. Customers of Bramble Savings Bank will automatically become customers of Foundation Bank. People should continue to use their existing branch until they receive notice from Foundation Bank that it has completed systems changes to allow other Foundation Bank branches to process their accounts as well. As of June 30, Bramble Savings Bank had about $47.5 million in total assets and $41.6 million in total deposits. Foundation Bank agreed to purchase essentially all of the failed bank's assets, the release said. For more information, visit individual/failed/bramblesavings.html.

Fish keeps well for good winter eating several years. Bryan is always eager to help repair equipment for neighbors. The Ole Fisherman and wife say congratulations to you kids and many more years together and God bless you. At the reception, Bryan said I need to talk to you. It seems there has been several bicycle rides over that way. Bryan said Aug. 28 there was more than 1,000 bicycle riders that went from the Stonelick area to Newtonsville area. The route was laid out and it covered miles and miles. Now it seems each weekend there are several bicycle rides. The one Aug. 28 was to raise money for Muscular Sclerosis, this is a very worthy cause. Ruth Ann and I got to go fishing last week a couple mornings. On Wednesday morning we kept six crappie, 18 bluegills and one

channel catfish. We are stocking up the freezer for winter. This is like the garden produce – the lake furnishes the fish we eat when there is cold weather and snow on the ground. We were watching the R.F.D. station the other day and there was a farm travel show. They showed a corn head for a self-propelled combine, that would fold up for road travel. The cost of this equipment is very expensive so the farmer needs to be making money to stay in business. The harvest season is now starting so if you see some big equipment on the highway give them plenty of room. Some folks will get aggravated by the slowness, but this farmer with this big equipment is furnishing food for the dinner tables. The farmers will work long hours so when you see them thank them

Don’t delay writing your will I heard of an interesting situation a few weeks ago. There is an elderly couple in their 80s, who have never had a will drawn up. The man is having health problems; and his wife has Alzheimer’s and is not able to live alone. If the man dies before his wife, the estate would be probated and possibly divided among his wife and children minus the cost of probate. In that case, the surviving spouse would only receive a fraction of the estate. This could force her into poverty or even homelessness. Even if there is enough money to go around, who will care for her and pay the bills while the probate is bogged down in court? Your will is one of the most important documents you will ever sign. If you love your family and want to make sure your wishes are followed, it’s important to write them down. There are certain things to avoid in order to do it right. Here are some of the more critical “don’ts.” Don’t put it off until later. The worst thing you can do is procrastinate. No matter what your age, the time is now. Don’t do it by yourself. Saving a few bucks by writing your own document will not provide the level of confidence you and your family

deserve. Nothing can replace a face-to-face meeting with an attorney who knows to draft Linda how a will and Eppler ask the right Community q u e s t i o n s Press guest about situayou columnist tions may never think of. My husband and I learned this first hand when we had our will drawn up. After allowing for certain bequests, we divided the remainder of our estate equally between our two daughters. The attorney asked that if something happened to our older daughter, would we want her share to go to her daughters (our granddaughters) or have it all go to our surviving daughter. We would not have thought of that on our own and it changed the wording of our will. You may want to leave a portion of your estate to a charity that has meant something to you or helped you when you were in need. Sometimes people who are not able to make a donation while they are living, leave an organization a small percentage of their

estate, which can be a nice donation. This also makes a positive statement to your family and friends about your priorities. It won’t happen, though, if it’s not in writing. Next – don’t put it away and forget about it. Things change. Children grow up. Laws change. Beneficiaries may die first. An outdated will could create more problems than it solves. It’s a good idea to get your will out every year and review it. Don’t put it where no one can find it. A will is worthless if it cannot be found at your death. And that puts your family in a probate situation that could be as stressful as the scenario above. Locating the will is another advantage to having a lawyer. Our lawyer has copies of the titles and deeds to all of our property as well as the will itself. All we did was give our daughters our attorney’s business card. There is no locked box or key or misplaced papers to look for. Talk it over with your spouse and family. No one likes talking about death and taxes, but if you’re not careful, they may hit at the same time. Linda Eppler is director of Communications and Lifelong Learning at Clermont Senior Services.

The Senior Services event at the Receptions Sept. 10 was a great event. The attendance was the biggest it has ever been with more than 300 folks. There was a lot of money raised for the services they do. The Bethel United Methodist Church celebrated the 150 years the church has been on this same piece of ground. The event was called the Heritage Celebration and the attendance was big. The first part was at the

Burke Park, then the music had to be moved into the church Saturday evening due to the rain showers. There was food and games for the children. The folks from Georgetown who make that wonderful ice cream were there. As usual the folks got in line to get their share of the good ice cream. Great job Mr. and Mrs. Manning. On Sunday the church was full, then we went to the middle school for a covered dish dinner. It was great to have some folks who used to attend be there and ministers and families come back. Mark your calendars for Oct. 3 at 2 p.m. we will be having the homecoming at the Old Bethel Methodist
