Partners for a Drug Free Milford/Miami Township has won a five-year, $125,000 annual federal grant from the Department of Health and Human Services. The money will be used to hire an executive director and a parttime program coordinator and fund drug prevention programs, said Tom Willson, Milford High School Assistant Principal and organization member. “We’re excited,” Willson said. “We’ve tried to be the leaders at the forefront of prevention since

we started random drug testing, so it’s a great opportunity for the schools.” The coalition is comprised of about 15 members who range from high school students to law enforcement officials, parents and local business owners, said district spokeswoman Meg Krsacok. Since its inception the coalition has conducted several campaigns about drug and alcohol use and held a summit for students to talk with adults in the community about drug, alcohol and tobacco use. “The award signifies that the group is exceptionally qualified,

professional and highly organized to expand prevention efforts and reduce substance abuse on a large scale,” Krsacok said. The late Milford High School Principal Ray Bauer helped found the coalition. Willson said winning the grant will help keep Bauer’s vision for the group alive. “We have some very, very passionate people on the committee,” he said. “I think Ray would be happy to see where it’s going. It’s going to grow leap and bounds now to help put a stop to a growing problem.” While Willson is happy about the grant and anxious to begin

new prevention programs, he’s also quick to say there is not a drug problem at Milford High School. “One of my fears is people would hear about the coalition and think ‘Oh, here we go, Milford has a drug problem’ and that’s not the case,” he said. “There are problems in every high school, but one of our main goals is to limit their access and hold people accountable,” said Wilson.

Prosecutor challenges candidate’s allegations By Theresa L. Herron

Members of the Union Township Republican Central Committee received a letter last week from Clermont County Prosecutor Donald White rebutting comments allegedly made by GOP-endorsed county commissioner candidate Archie Wilson at an Aug. 2 meeting, White claims. Wilson accused White of not disclosing all the facts in the death of Cecelia Slaby, the 2-year-old left in the back seat of her mother’s car all day in the heat Aug. 23, 2007. The incident happened outside Glen Este Middle School, where her mother Brenda Nesselroad Slaby was a vice principal. White did not prosecute the mother. White asked Ted Stevenot, GOP committee chair, if he could attend another meeting to address Wilson’s alleged comments. Stevenot said White is welcome to a meeting after the election. All committee meetings between now and Nov. 2 are lengthy because members are working to get voters to the polls. “He is welcome to come, but Wilson is the endorsed candidate

and this is a Republican meeting,” Stevenot said, who added White was told he could come to the next meeting, be introduced and he could talk to anyone who approached him. “He did not come to the meeting.” “I hardly remember the remarks made that related to Don (White),” Stevenot said. “I’m not sure what the allegations are. I do not remember them being the highlight of the commentary Archie made when he was our guest. I’m surprised by this. I did not leave that meeting and have a lot of people talk to me about what was said.” White said in the letter to committee members that the autopsy done on the toddler stated she died of injuries caused by “systemic hyperthermia.” No other injuries or trauma were found during the autopsy. “There were no other signs of foul play found during the autopsy,” White said. “The Union Township police department did a very thorough investigation and they agreed with me and my staff that it was the negligence of Slaby leaving her child in the car all day.

Milford Schools Foundation Night of the Stars is Nov. 13 By Mary Dannemiller

Notable Milford High School alumni ranging from a Super Bowl champion to a member of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra will be honored by the Milford Schools Foundation Saturday, Nov. 13, during its Night of the Stars fundraiser. Alumni Bill Platt, a 1963 graduate who recently retired from the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra; Rick Blackburn, a1960 graduate who has worked with Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton in Nashville; Joann Fley, an early 1950s graduate and teacher; Mike Cutlip, a 1959 graduate and retired chemical engineering professor; and

Paul Ward, a 1963 graduate and former commander in the Navy will be recognized at the event. New Orleans Saints offensive tackle and Milford High School Class of 2001 graduate Zach Strief will be honored, but cannot make it to the fundraiser. “We tried to get people from all different areas,” said foundation President Todd Munro. “We’ve got sports, music, an administrator at a college and some business people. We wanted people from various professions and not to concentrate on just one area, but a broad spectrum of different fields of expertise.” The foundation was established earlier this year to help pay for extra field trips, classroom sup-

plies and other expenses the school district might not be able to afford. Foundation members also hope to eventually establish a scholarship fund. “The money is going to supplement the teachers, help with capital improvements and anything they need from kindergarten through 12th-grade,” said member Jean Ackermann. “Teachers can apply for a grant and then we help them. The money is not going to be handled by the school board or the district. We’re a separate entity.” Tickets for the event cost $40 and include a buffet dinner, dessert and alcohol or soft drinks, Ackermann said. Milford Junior High School

Council won’t read letters, comments Driver in fatal hit and run identified

By Kellie Geist

dence, he said. “In the past (correspondence) was just summarized. ‘We got a letter from John Doe saying council is doing a great job’ or ‘We got a letter from Jane Doe saying council is doing a lousy job.’ If anyone wants to read the letters ... it’s always public record,” he said. Council members also may request that specific letters be read verbatim as long as they address one of three things: It must pertain to matters within the purview of city council’s legislative authority, matters related to the city government or to items listed on the agenda. Minniear also recommended adding a section to the rules of council to restrict public comment to those same specifications. If there is a dispute about whether a comment or letter should be allowed, Minniear will make the final decision.

Letters and other correspondence will no longer be read verbatim at Milford City Council meetings. The discussion to stop reading letters started when Mayor Ralph Vilardo asked for the clerk of council to stop reading former council member Bryan Hawkins’ resignation letter during the council meeting Sept. 7. Law Director Mike Minniear said council needs to be consistent about whether or not they read the letters to avoid legal issues. During the Sept. 21 council meeting, Minniear proposed that only summaries of correspondence be read during the city council meetings. The recommendation, which was taken from an Ohio Attorney General’s opinion, is how council used to handle correspon-

He said council members should not make that decision because they could be subject to bias. Council, with the exception of Geoff Pittman, agreed and voted to add those two sections to the rules of council. Pittman said he felt that while the recommendation was taken from an Attorney General’s opinion, adding it to the rules of council would restrict free speech. He also had concerns about the rule that comments must be “related to matters of city government.” “It gives me some pause because I think that’s fairly open to interpretation ... I think it’s open for vagueness,” he said. Pittman also said he did not want to restrict residents’ first amendment rights. All rules of council can be changed at any time with a four votes, Minniear said.

McElfresh also said he is meeting with the Clermont County Prosecutor’s Office to discuss further charges against Rose. “Regardless of the time of day, people out there driving have to pay attention to their surroundings,” he said. “You have to know what’s going on in front you, behind you and beside you.” The crash remains under investigation.

Goshen Citizen Police Academy gets $500 from Miami Twp.



The driver in a hit and run which killed a 66-yearold Bethel man Monday, Sept. 20, has been identified. Angela Jean Rose, 27, Milford, was driving a 1999 Pontiac Montana at the time of the crash. She has been charged with leaving the scene of an crash and driving under suspension, said Ohio State Highway Patrol Lt. Randy McElfresh. The crash happened just after 8 p.m. on Ohio 125 in Tate Township. James Trammell of Bethel was riding his bike when he was hit. Trammell was pronounced dead on the scene, McElfresh said.

The Goshen Citizen Police Academy has received a $500 donation from the Miami Township Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association. Miami Township Police Capt. Cliff Rowland said he got the idea to donate to the GCPA after talking to Goshen Township Assistant Police Chief Bob Rose about his efforts to get the Goshen academy started. “We’re fortunate enough where the township can buy the T-shirts for our police academy and when I was talking to Capt. Rose, he said they were buying their own shirts,” Rowland said. “I thought it would be a great gesture to show we support their program.” Rose said the donation will be used for the graduation ceremony at the end of October and for a class photo plaque to hang in the police department training room. “It’s a tremendous gift,” Rose said. “It’s helping us

provide the best experience possible for the wonderful citizens who are taking part in our first-ever citizen police academy.” Gene Bishop, vice president of the Miami Township Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association, said he hoped the donation would help create a good relationship between the two academies. “It makes us feel proud that we were able to do that because we’re trying to form a bond between us,” he said. “We feel there are many times we could use their help and they may be able to help us so we’d like to have that bond between the two organizations so we can work closer together.” The president of the Goshen Citizen Police Academy, Tony Schwab, said he’s looking forward to working with the Miami Township group. “I think Miami Township is a pacesetter in our area so it’s great for them to reach out to our community and help,” he said. Though Goshen’s academy has only been meeting for a few weeks, Rose said it has been a success. “We’ve had a great time,” he said. “It’s a very educational program with nearly a 100-percent attendance rate at every meeting. Everyone keeps coming back so that lets me know we’re doing something right.”

New Miami Twp. disc golf course honors resident By Mary Dannemiller

To Marilou Coldewey, the new Karl Von Coldewey Disc Golf Course in Miami Township’s Community Park is more than just a disc golf course. It’s a place she can go to remember her son, who was passionate about the sport and brought the idea of installing a course to township trustees several years ago. Karl passed away unexpectedly from complications of diabetes in January 2008, before he had a chance to play on the course. The Miami Township trustees officially opened the course with a ribbon cutting Saturday, Aug. 14. “It was bittersweet because Karl wanted that course put in and he started


The Miami Township trustees helped the family of Karl Von Coldewey dedicate the disc golf course at Community Park on Buckwheat Road Aug. 14, named in his honor. From left are: Trustee Karl Schultz, Trustee Ken Tracy, Karl’s mother Marilou Coldewey, his wife Kim Korson Coldewey, his stepfather Ken Gee, Trustee Mary Makley Wolff and Fiscal Officer Eric Ferry. working on it about four years ago,” Marilou said. “He passed away two years ago so he’ll never play on it, but a lot of his friends were

there and there are lots of people who are going to enjoy it so I’m happy about that.” Karl loved disc golf so

Reward offered for information about damage in Community Park Miami Township resident Steve Kordis walks his dog through Community Park daily and Sept. 25 found one of the new disc golf baskets had been broken. “The township provides a lot of recreational services, so it is sad that whoever did this had nothing better to do,” Kordis said. “I will offer a $500 reward if someone will provide information to catch

whomever did this.” Township Administrator Larry Fronk said the township is supporting Kordis’ offer for a reward. “We greatly appreciate his generosity.” “I am angry and saddened that an individual or group of individuals would destroy a park venue that has been so well received by our residents. On any given day our residents would be

in the park with their family and friends enjoying a round of disc golf. It is a shame that a few can ruin the enjoyment of so many. I am truly hopeful that someone will come forward with information that will lead us to those responsible,” Fronk said. Information should be taken to the Miami Township Police Department: 248-3721.


Members of the Fraternal Order of Police, Ohio Valley Lodge 112, have endorsed Richard P. Ferenc for Judge of the Clermont County Court of Common Pleas. “It is an honor and privilege to have gained the trust and support of the women and men who know the court system from the inside,” Ferenc said. Ferenc has successfully prosecuted many serious criminal cases as an award winning former chief assis-

tant felony prosecutor. He also successfully litigated a wide range of complex civil trials in the common pleas court.

Wilson endorsed by FOP Lodge 112

Jim Sauls, chair for the Committee to Elect Archie Wilson Commissioner, announced that Archie Wilson received a letter from Colonel Daryl Zornes, Retired, Secretary for Ohio Valley Lodge 112, Fraternal Order of Police, stating, “We

are pleased to advise you that the general membership of the F.O.P. voted to endorse you as a candidate for Clermont County Commissioner.” Wilson said, “I really appreciate the F.O.P. being proactive and being willing to discuss the issues in this election. Their endorsement is very important to me. My campaign has been a grassroots campaign with support across this county and their endorsement from the general membership is evidence of that support.”

much that shortly before his death, he and his wife bought a home with five acres and were planning to build a course there, Mar-

ilou said. “He had three tees he was going to set on the five acres so he could play at home,” she said. “Those tees were donated to the park.” The new course at Community Park is only a half course, but Marilou said her son would have been happy with it. “He played every spare minute he had,” she said. “Before he went on vacation, he found out where the courses were and always played whenever he went on vacation. When he wanted to relax, it was his favorite thing to do.” Miami Township Trustee Mary Makley Wolff said she was glad the township was able to team up with Karl’s friends and family to make the course possible. “We didn’t know there

was such a thing as a disc golf course when Karl approached us,” she said. “After his tragic death, these folks were very persistent. They stepped up to the plate and made it happen.” Aside from being a memorial to Karl, Wolff said the disc golf course was another fun option for township residents. “It’s just the perfect recreation piece that we didn’t quite have yet,” she sad. “It’s a really nice addition to Community Park.” Though Marilou doesn’t play disc golf, she plans to walk the course as often as possible. “It’s a very precious memory for me,” she said. “That park will be there forever, at least for the rest of my lifetime, and I’m going to appreciate it every day.”

Challenge There is not one iota of evidence that points in any other direction.” Wilson said last week that he believes more investigation should have been done, and he did not know if an autopsy had been performed. “I never said there was a cover up,” Wilson said. He said an anonymous letter was delivered to his home that said more investigation was needed. The Community Press has a copy of the letter and names and dates have been redacted. “People believe there should have been more investigation,” he said. Wilson also said the prosecutor should have taken himself off the case since Croswell was Slaby’s attorney. White said, “When I made my decision not to prosecute Slaby, she had no attorney. I talked to her personally and told her I would not prosecute. I never knew Scott was going to represent her. I would not have called her if I had known she was represented by an attorney.” As far as the grand jury, White said, “you don’t take cases to the grand jury when you don’t believe you can get a conviction.” Two people at the Aug. 2 meeting verified that Wilson accused White of a cover-up in this case. Union Township Trustee Matt Beamer said Wilson’s comments

were “over the top, in my opinion.” Union Township resident Barbara Wiedenbein said, “(Wilson) made the comments in front of the whole group at the meeting.” White said Stevenot offered him time at the December meeting. But, “I didn’t see any reason to go there unless I could address the whole group. So I chose to send the letter. I sent the letter to the members of the committee. I did not send the letter to the press. I did not intend for it to go to the press. The letter is a way to set the record straight with regard to the cause of death of Cecelia Slaby based on Archie’s misinformation. He is repeating a statement by someone who does not know what he is talking about.” “(Wilson is) talking about this now because he knows I’m supporting Scott Croswell for commissioner. Since I’m supporting Scott, he’s trying to damage my reputation by making defamatory statements about me when he knows they are not true. There is not one word of truth in what he said and he knows it,” White said. Croswell has been elected twice as a Republican, but the party endorsed Wilson for this year’s race. Croswell said he chose to run as an independent to give all voters in Clermont County a chance to determine who holds this seat, not just the Republican Party voters during the primary. “Personally, I will not represent a

party whose leadership condones the campaign Mr. Wilson is running. I am running to give the entire Clermont County (community) a choice ... an opportunity to vote and make a decision.” “I’m not surprised a letter has been sent (by White) because I am aware of the allegations. But I was not aware the letter had been sent,” Croswell said about White’s letter. Croswell, Brenda Slaby’s attorney after her child’s death, said there was no cover-up. “It absolutely did not occur. I never had a personal conversation with Don White concerning the case. My discussions were confined to talking to the chief deputy prosecutor, Woody Breyer.” “Don White had no choice. There was no criminal (offense) under Ohio law. Do you think he would cover up something as public as that case was?” Croswell said. “Mr. Wilson has spent the last year spreading false and malicious rumors about this (my) campaign. This is one of a number of rumors he is doing for what he perceives for political gain,” Croswell said. “I personally think his conduct is deplorable and I wish he would stop to think about the many innocent people he hurts by spreading these rumors,” Croswell said. “True Christians don’t spread these types of vile and vicious rumors that Archie spreads. This can hurt innocent parties.”

Miami Twp. firefighters ‘brave enough to wear pink’ By Mary Dannemiller

Miami Township firefighters will trade their dark blue uniforms for bright pink T-shirts in October to help raise breast cancer awareness. During the second week of October, the firefighters will wear pink shirts with their local union logo and the breast cancer awareness ribbon on the front and “Brave enough to wear pink” on the back, said Firefighter and Local 3768 president Dan Berkebile. “October has been designated Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” Berkebile said. “During this month Miami Township firefighters will be showing our support by conducting a fundraiser for breast cancer.” The firefighters will carry extra T-shirts on their trucks and will sell them for $15 each. They’ll also be setting up booths at local businesses throughout October, Berkebile said. “We are public servants and we serve the public every day in terms of providing fire safety and life safety,” said Fire Chief Jim Whitworth. “This is an extension of our caring into the community and it’s a great way to do it.” Berkebile said he got the idea

at the International Association of Professional Firefighters conference earlier this year where union leaders passed a resolution allowing locals to support breast cancer awareness. Proceeds from the T-shirt sales will be split between the Bethesda North Breast Center and a fund set aside to help any Miami Township firefighters or paramedics or their family members who might be diagnosed with breast cancer, Berkebile said. “The majority of the funds raised will be donated to Bethesda North’s Breast Center,” he said. “They will be using the funds to assist in the education program. This education program is used at health fairs where the majority of the individuals attending are the under served.” Both Whitworth and Berkebile encouraged residents to approach the firefighters about purchasing a shirt if they are not on an emergency run. “Dress in those T-shirts, they’ll probably be pretty noticeable,” Whitworth said. “I think that’ll prompt some people to talk to them.”

St. Louis teacher gets kids interested in science By John Seney

St. Louis School science teacher Beth Weber “does a lot of really neat experiments in her classroom,” said Principal Peg Hunsberger. Because of her efforts, Weber recently received the 2009-2010 “Governor’s Award for Excellence in Youth Science Opportunities.” The award, from The Ohio Academy of Science in cooperation with the Ohio Department of Education, recognizes schools and teachers who encourage student scientific research and broaden science education opportunities beyond traditional classroom activities. Hunsberger, who nominated her for the award, said Weber is an excellent teacher and “very, very organized.” “She always has something going on that helps students understand the material,” she said. “We’re very happy to have her here. She does an excellent job,” Weber said her students regularly participate in regional and state science fairs. She takes her classes on a lot of field trips and invites guest speakers to talk to the students. For example, an astronomer from the Cincinnati Observatory came in to talk to the seventh-graders, she said. “Anything we can do to spark an interest in science,” she said. This is Weber’s fifth year as a teacher at the Owensville school. She got her degree in pharmacy and once worked as a pharmacist. She became interested in teach-

She teaches life science to the sixth-graders, earth science to the seventh-graders and chemistry

Milford to hold Digital Citizenship Week By Mary Dannemiller

Students in the Milford school district will spend the first week of October learning about digital etiquette, responsibility and their rights online during the district’s first ever Digital Citizenship Week. During the week of Oct. 4, students in all grades will participate in classroom activities designed to teach them how to conduct themselves online. “We really want them to understand that the Internet has a wealth of resources and it’s a great tool for communication, but there are risks associated with that,” said Lynn Ochs, district coordinator of technology. Ochs said a highlight of the week will be making sure the students know where they can turn if they encounter cyber bullying or other inappropriate behavior online.

Welcome back

McCormick Elementary student Nathan Daly, right, attended the recent Open House welcoming students to a new school year. Daly is seen here organizing his supplies with the help of his parents. PROVIDED

“If they run into a situation where they feel they’re being treated poorly, they need to know who to turn to,” she said. “If someone receives a message that makes them feel uncomfortable or they’re the target of cyber bullying, they have to report it.” Pattison Elementary School Principal Gregg Curless said it’s important for even young elementary school students to learn how to behave online. “It’s important to learn the proper use of technology,” he said. “Adults have to be involved in every aspect of a child’s life to provide that guidance so they can make good choices.” Though all students will learn about cyber bullying and what’s appropriate to post on social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook, that lesson will be emphasized to high school and junior high students, Ochs said.

“We’ll talk about the digital footprint and how they are presenting themselves online,” she said. “Every time you go on the Internet and you’re conversing, you’re leaving a digital footprint that can be found and I don’t think many students think about that.” Cyber bullying, sexting and other online incidents have occurred in the school district, but Ochs said since students don’t access social networking websites from school, it can be hard to know what’s going on. “We really have not had a lot,” she said. “It’s a rising concern, but a lot of the time it’s something that happens outside of school. It occurs off-site, but it impacts relationships in our world when they come into school.” For more information about Digital Citizenship Week, visit

Attendance at the Goshen Learning Academy summer camp increased this year, the second year of the program. Director Jennifer Schlosser Sept. 13 told Goshen school board members attendance averaged more than 30 children during most weeks of the summer. Last year, attendance averaged between 15 and 20 campers a week. “We were really excited to increase attendance,” she said. The Learning Academy is run by the Goshen Local School District at Marr/Cook Elementary School. During the school year, the academy offers a preschool program and before- and afterschool child care. During the summer, an academic-based camp is offered. Schlosser said the theme of this summer’s camp was “Travel the World,” with campers learning about a different country every week. “We had a lot of academics going on,” she said. The campers also had time for fun and games and several field trips, she said.


Jennifer Schlosser, Goshen Learning Academy director, Sept. 13 gives school board members an update on the program. Schlosser said the summer camp was able to make a small profit this year. The preschool program this year has 24 full-day students and no half-day students, compared to 18 full-day and four half-day students in 2009-2010, she said. Board member Mary Gray said since with many kids have two working parents, “the full-day program is what people want.”

Milford student named National Merit semifinalist Milford High School senior Jason Kress has been named a 2011 National Merit Semifinalist. Kress earned this honor by being one of the 16,000 students nationwide, out of 1.5 million,

whose scored high enough on the PSAT/NMQT Test to qualify. Kress now will have the opportunity to advance in the competition and possibly become a finalist and win scholarship money.

Thomas A. Wildey announces lunch program eligibility The Clermont County Board of Developmental Disabilities (Clermont DD) and the Thomas A. Wildey School has applications available for students unable to pay the full price of meals or milk served under the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program. The Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines will be used for determining eligibility. Children from families whose annual income is at or below the

federal guidelines are eligible for free- and reduced-price meals. Application were sent to all families during the summer. To apply for free and reducedprice benefits, households should fill out the application and return it to the Thomas A. Wildey School.

HIGH SCHOOL | YOUTH | Editor Melanie Laughman | | 248-7573

By Nick Dudukovich

Nathan Termuhlen is like any other teenager. He goes to school, he hangs out with his friends, and he plays Xbox 360. However, unlike his peers, Termuhlen, a running back on the Milford High School football team, leads the Greater Cincinnati area in touchdowns, with 18. Termuhlen was one of many bright spots for Milford in the Eagles’ 55-34 loss to the Turpin High School Sept. 24. Despite facing a tough Spartan defense, Termuhlen rushed for 105 yards and three touchdowns on 25 attempts. Termuhlen, a senior, is humble about his recent achievements. Rather than tout his own abilities on the field, he credited his offensive line, good coaching and good play calling as the reasons for his success. Milford coach Shane Elkin said that Termuhlen’s “team” attitude has really endeared itself to others on the squad, and that it is one of the reasons Termuhlen was named one of the Eagles’ captains. “If you are around Nathan, you will realize he’s not one of those guys who


City touchdown leader Nathan Termuhlen rushes against Turpin at Milford High School Sept. 24. says ‘look at me,’” Elkin said. “He’s a very down to earth, actually quiet guy.” Termuhlen further cemented his team first philosophy when he said he would put wins before any personal accomplishments. “I could care less if I get the ball,” he said. “If we have to throw or hand it off to the fullback ... whatever it takes to win is what


we’ve got to do.” Despite Termuhlen’s modest outlook, the Fort Ancient Valley Conference’s leading rusher is an integral piece of Milford’s game plan. Through five games this season, Termuhlen was ranked eight in the area with 727 rushing yards on 101 attempts. Those numbers averaged

out to almost 7.2 yards per carry. His success in the 2010 campaign comes after last year’s breakout season, where he rushed for 1,327 yards and 21 touchdowns. With success, the 5-foot11, 195-pound Termuhlen is finding out that wins, accolades and statistics are usually followed by high expectations. His Milford

team is 3-2 this season, after finishing 5-5 a year ago. Termuhlen said the weight of a bad game does add pressure, but he tries his best to move past it. “I try to focus on what I have to do and not what is going on around me,” he said. “On the field, it’s just me doing my job and I don’t worry about what anybody else is doing. It’s what I have to do. Just play.” If Termuhlen continues to exhibit that kind of dedication to the game he’s played since he was 6 years old, there’s a good chance he will be playing on Saturdays next year. Termuhlen wants to play college football, just like his brother Derek, who plays defensive back at the College of Mount St. Joseph, and has started exploring opportunities for next season. Elkin believes whoever takes a chance on Termuhlen will have a talented recruit. He’s an outstanding young man, Elkin said. “He’s a strong leader with good work ethic and he’s one of those kids, that if somebody is willing to take a chance on him, he’s going to have a heck of a college career.”

Goshen serves up conference wins By Nick Dudukovich

The start of the 2010 volleyball season didn’t look promising for the Goshen High School girls’ squad. Coming off of a loss to Western Brown Sept. 7, and six games into their schedule, the Warriors posted a 15 record. How quickly things can change. After that early loss to Western Brown, the Warriors went on to win five of their next six matches. Following the Sept. 22 match against FelicityFranklin, Goshen posted a 66 record overall, and a 3-2 record in the Southern Buckeye Conference’s American Division. Head coach Lisa Smith believes her team rebounded from the rough start because of the unity members share. “The girls enjoy each others company and they don’t want to let each other down,” Smith said. Smith added that despite her team’s recent winning ways, the Warriors are still trying to find a level of consistency in their play. The coach said during some matches, the squad

• In girls golf, St. Ursula beat McNicholas 165-200, Sept. 20. McNick’s Lucy Frey medaled with 4 over par 39 on the front nine at Royal Oak. On Sept. 21, McNick placed second with a score of 207 against Ursuline’s 157 and Mercy’s 208. • In boys soccer, McNick lost to Ryle 2-1, Sept. 21. McNick’s John Sandmann scored his team’s goal. • In boys golf, McNick placed first with a score of 167 against Taylor’s 167 and Madeira’s 178, Sept. 21. • The girls soccer team beat Alter 2-0, Sept. 22. McNick’s Alli Thul made six saves, and Tricia Walsh and Megan Simmons scored the goals.

may serve the ball well. In another match, that facet of play may suffer, but another aspect of the game will excel. “Consistency is important,” Smith said. “You don’t want other teams picking up momentum. If we can continue to be consistent and keep momentum up on our side, that will be key.” One of the players who has contributed to Goshen’s recent success has been Sarah Barrial. Through 12 matches, Barrial recorded 25 aces and 92 kills. Barrial has been a team leader, said Smith. “She knows the game really well and she’s a strong competitor,” Smith said. “She sacrifices herself for the ball and she’s very good at the fundamentals of the game.” Goshen also is benefiting from Kelly Parriman’s contributions. Through the FelicityFranklin match, Parriman recorded 14 aces and 168 digs as a setter for the squad. “The setter has to be a strong leader because of the position,” Smith said. “She’s going to set the tone for the game ... she’s doing a real good job and she’s a hard worker on and off the court,” Smith said.

At the net, the Warriors boast an enforcer on defense: Kylie Collins. Collins has been responsible for 29 blocks through Sept. 22, and Smith said she gives the Warriors an edge. “(Kylie’s) improved so much since last season,” she said. “(Having her) is a big advantage. She can use her presence on the court to intimidate players. Other contributors through 12 matches on the squad this season include Kaitlin Tucker (51 kills), Erica Miracle (93 digs), Tesla Mueller (44 kills) and Ashley Tidwell (88 digs). With the season heading into the home stretch, Smith hopes her team can continue its winning ways and end the season on a positive note. “Because we seem to be coming together, hopefully we will finish at the top of the league, and it would be a great goal to reach the finals of sectionals,” Smith said. Smith knows this outcome will depend on how steady her team performs. “We play well and hard, and we’ve been kind of like a roller coaster,” she said. “We’re trying to stay on the upswing now for the second half of the season.”

Levy will not raise taxes

Nov. 2, you can help provide significant support services to our most vulnerable citizens, children at serious risk and those neglected, abused and dependent children who have been removed from unsafe – even dangerous surroundings. The renewal of the .8-mill Children’s Protective Services Levy will continue to supply the needed funds to pay for these services without raising taxes. I have friends who are foster parents and have had the privilege of observing miracles occur as they provide the loving home and essential medical and therapeutic services necessary to give these children a chance of living healthy, happy, productive lives. None of the money raised by this levy pays for administrative costs or salaries, but it does purchase the services needed by these children. The funds provide intervention that has changed the

direction of children’s lives helping to reduce the need for later, more costly remediation. The 320 children in the custody of Children’s Protective Services and the nearly 5,000 children who received services last year are clear evidence of the need. I strongly encourage you to join me to Keep Our Children Safe and vote “yes” Tuesday, Nov. 2, for the CPS levy. Visit Kathy Freudenberger Tate Township

Vote for children

I am currently working with several children who are in foster care for various reasons. The services provided for these children, parents, and foster parents are very important. Some children are able to return home because their families received counseling and parenting classes from Children’s Protective Services. Without these supportive

services, children placed into foster care might not receive all the help they need to support their various delay/developmental issues. This is why I am encouraging everyone to vote “yes” for Issue 5 Nov. 2. The levy does not increase taxes, it is a renewal for .8-mill. Every dollar goes directly toward the children who have been affected by abuse, and/or neglect. Visit Nicole Patterson Clermont DD Early Intervention Specialist Felicity

Wilson will use tax dollars effectively “A penny saved is a penny earned.” Those were words were first penned by Benjamin Franklin, but I think that sentiment still holds true today. In this economy people are trying to do more with less and being fiscally responsible is an absolute necessity. Government needs to be aware of the needs of the people they serve and use taxpayer dollars in the most effective ways possible. About 30 years ago, my partner and I began a small business here in Clermont County. Over the years, with hard work our business has grown. I want Clermont County to be a business-friendly community and I want to see new jobs for our residents. I believe this can be done with openness and integrity. Tax dollars need to be used to keep our communities safe. There needs to be consequences for crime and the entire jail should be available so people can serve out the sentences they are given for their crimes and not given house arrest just because there isn't room at the jail. People need to know that the communities they live in are safe places to raise their families. As I have traveled throughout the county I have had the opportunity to listen to what is important to the residents who live

here. I have found many people who share my beliefs of conservative, moral and fiscal values and I am energized by the growing number of people who are supporting me. I want to make a difference in making this county Archie better than it is today for Wilson our children and grandchildren. Community This November the votPress guest ers of Clermont County will columnist have the opportunity to make a change in county government. I believe that hard times require overtime and I am willing to put in the time necessary to get the job done. I am asking for your vote and your support in my bid for commissioner. If you have any questions please feel free to call me at 513-4030405. Archie Wilson is a candidate for Clermont County commissioner Nov. 2.

We are very fortunate to have qualified county leadership that have the strength and integrity to manage the financial minefield in the face of heavy political pressure, and who do not just talk about, but exhibit their dedication to fiscal conservatism. Scott Croswell has a long history of fiscal conservatism. Scott has demonstrated our values; worked

Last week while he was campaigning in Clermont County, I had the opportunity to talk with John Kasich about his plan to help turn things around in Ohio. As Kasich has been traveling around the state, he has been telling people that we need to create a climate more conducive to business relocation and job creation in Ohio. Kasich has repeatedly said that this can only be accomplished by balancing the budget and shrinking the size of government. I could not agree more with John Kasich. For the past eight years, I have had the honor and privilege of serving as your county commissioner. During that time, I have worked hard to promote the ideals of limited government, lower taxes and job creation through economic development. Like John Kasich, I believe that if we do not ensure Clermont County is a place where businesses want to locate and believe their companies will thrive, we will never see an increase in well paying and stable jobs. This is one of the reasons I led the fight to redevelop the old Ford Plant in Batavia to attract new jobs there. This is also one of the reasons I was not afraid to cut bureaucratic budgets during my time in office even though it meant I would not receive a political party endorsement. We must identify government waste, and when we see it we cannot be afraid to do the right thing and make the necessary cuts even if it impacts your own party leaders. Too often politicians place their allegiance to party leaders and special interests ahead of the people who elect them. I have

I will also make sure these cuts are done in such a way that we protect the vital services you have come to expect from your county government. Ensuring we continue to have one of the finest law enforcement agencies, making sure the needs of our seniors are taken care of, protecting our children and remembering the debt we owe to our veterans are all priorities.

How far do you think the Reds will go in the playoffs? Why? “My answer: first round. “Why? Because whenever I get enthusiastic about our teams, be it the Reds or Bengals, they lose.

Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW), the week of Oct. 3 promotes public awareness and education about serious mental illnesses such as major depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. MIAW is especially important this year as severe budget cuts threaten mental health services across the country, creating an unprecedented mental health crisis.

Clermont County Sheriff hosts Top Dog Competition MARY DANNEMILLER/STAFF

Clermont County Sheriff’s Deputy Meredith Walsh and her dog, Arron, walk through the obedience portion of the Ohio Law Enforcement K9 Association Top Dog Competition at Amelia High School Saturday, Sept. 18.

The Clermont County Sheriff’s Office hosted the Ohio Law Enforcement K9 Association Top Dog Competition at Amelia High School Sept. 18. Eight teams of local police officers and their canine partners competed in narcotics, obedience and criminal apprehension. The teams came from the Warren County Sheriff’s Office, the Kettering Police Department, the Sharonville

Police Department, the Goshen Township Police Department, the Union Township Police Department and the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office. The title of Top Dog went to Warren County Sheriff Deputy Kelly Hammonds and his dog, Tango. Second place went to Kettering Police Officer Brad Lambert and his dog Brix, while Clermont County Sheriff Deputy Meredith Walsh and her dog, Arron,

took third place. “I was happy with how he did,” Walsh said. “All of the dogs in the competition performed well. They performed exactly how they were trained, but it’s about speed, too. The difference between placing and not placing came down to seconds.” Next year’s competition will be hosted by the Warren County Sheriff’s Office.

Amelia grad participates in D-Day jump, earns promotion Jennifer Skunza, a 1996 graduate from Amelia High School, was promoted to Sergeant First Class in the U.S. Army June 6. Her ceremony was not the typical Army celebration. The paratrooper was selected as part of an elite airborne team to represent her unit, the 412th Civil Affairs Battalion (Airborne), based in Columbus, Ohio, in the annual Normandy jump to celebrate D-Day. The promotion ceremony transpired in Sainte Mere Eglise, France, one day after she jumped into Normandy. Skunza made her historic jump out of a German C160 aircraft. The Normandy jump is an annual reunion, an

anniversary celebration. The event is a joint team effort: British, French, German and U.S. paratroopers jump to commemorate the D-Day anniversary. To be selected, Skunza was recommended by her battalion. She was screened among hundreds of interested paratroopers. The 360th Civil Affairs Brigade, Skunza’s higher headquarters, was given 10 slots. Skunza was given the nod over many interested applicants. As a member of the select few, Skunza savored her opportunity to go to England and France as a member of the U.S. Army Reserve. “She did such a great job, she was selected to be a member of the color guard

for some of the parades and processions,“ said 1st Sgt. Jeffrey Clewell, also a member of the 412th. The Normandy operation was not all training and preparation. The citizen soldiers had some free time to enjoy the small towns they visited. “France was great,” said Skunza. “The townspeople treated us very well. We were able to visit many small villages and interact with the locals.” The international teams traveled together. The common bond among military personnel – teamwork – is paramount. That solidarity was displayed in the small towns, and the French were glad for all the paratroopers’ par-

ticipation, even the Germans. All the soldiers are cognizant of World War II history. “The French citizens from around Normandy were glad the Germans participated, and we all came together for this event,” said Skunza. “The French citizens are very appreciative of America’s involvement and their rescues during WW II. The people study and are very cognizant of history and are grateful to the United States.” “The French citizens showed appreciation for all the members of the teams,” said Clewell. “Only a little animosity (was shown) toward the Germans from some of the older people, but

Skunza relishes her

jumps and being a paratrooper so much, she is taking her skills to the next level. She prepares to become an Airborne Jumpmaster in September at Fort Bragg, N.C.

Lytle is considered the father of Clermont County When the Harmony Hill Association celebrated the birthday of Major Gen. William Lytle Aug. 29, the photos of the event did not include information about Lytle’s contributions to Clermont County. The following information is from the Clermont County Historical Society. In 1791, William Lytle, 21, already had four years of Indian warfare under his belt, was learning the science of surveying and had begun a lucrative career in land speculation.

In the mid 1790s he acquired several hundred acres of land on the East Fork of the Little Miami River. In the winter of 17951796, William, with his brother John, platted a small town on the west bank of the river and named it “Lytlestown.” Not long after, when this new town was officially dedicated, the name was changed to Williamsburgh. When Clermont County was established by proclamation Dec. 6, 1800, William Lytle’s flourishing village was designated the seat of justice for the

new county. Williamsburg remained the county seat until 1824 when the courts were moved to Batavia. Due to Lytle’s efforts in promoting the settlement of the area that later became Clermont County, he is frequently referred to today as the “Father of Clermont County.” When the courts first convened at Williamsburg, William Lytle was commissioned the first clerk of courts. He held this position until Ohio’s admission as a state in March 1803. Lytle remained in

Williamsburg until 1809 when he moved to the rapidly growing “Queen City of the West,” Cincinnati. There, he built a home on the site of present-day Lytle Park, directly across Pike Street from today’s Taft Art Museum. By the time Lytle moved his family to Cincinnati, he had become a wealthy man from his many land deals and business ventures. He moved among the circles of the powerful and influential and, shortly after war erupted between

the U.S. and Great Britain in 1812, William Lytle was appointed a Major General of the Ohio Militia. He was thereafter known as “General Lytle” the remainder of his life. In 1829, he was appointed surveyor general of the public lands of Ohio, Indiana and Michigan by his friend President Andrew Jackson. Unfortunately, he did not enjoy this high position for very long. He died March 17, 1831, at age 61.

Empty churches, crowded pathways and loneliness Over most of my many years as a priest, when I offered Sunday Mass it was done in a crowded church. Sometimes only standing room. No longer is that so except for Christmas and Easter. The Cincinnati Enquirer (Sept. 19, 2010) carried a front page story about diminishing Mass attendance in Catholic churches. Except for non-denominational groups, many Christian churches are experiencing the same problem. More than one-quarter of American adults have left the faith of their childhood. So says the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life based on reviews with 35,000 adults. The people who are not at church on Sunday are not at home brooding over the church’s faults. They are sleeping, shopping at the mall, working in their yard, having team practices, jogging, walking, watching football or baseball, etc. They want the church to be there when they want it, even if they do not want it very often. These are not bad people. There is no conscious conspiracy against going to church, values and spiritu-

Father Lou Guntzelman Perspectives

a l i t y . What is happening is that a number of important factors have been happening over the last 50 years that h a v e brought us

to this point. Now it has become difficult not just to think about God or to pray, but to have any interior depth whatsoever. Father Ronald Rolheiser writes, “It is not that we have anything against God, depth and spirit, it is just that we are habitually too preoccupied to have any of these show up on our radar screens. We are more busy than bad, more distracted than nonspiritual, and more interested in the movie theater, the sports stadium, and the shopping mall and the fantasy life they produce than we are in church.” Besides this busyness and preoccupation, another significant factor that has “gotten to us” is individualism. After countless centuries, the modern world is

shifting from being ruled by the power of the mace and the miter. Now spiritual authority is seen as especially being held in the hands of the individual person and his or her conscience. “Habits of the Heart” is a successful book first published in the mid-1980s. One of its chief observations was the growing number of youth and adults who looked to themselves alone as the possessors of spiritual truth, not organized religion. As a result of this book, a study was done. One of the participants in the study was Sheila Larson, a young nurse. She expressed her idea of religion and spirituality thus: “I believe in God. I’m not a religious fanatic. I can’t remember the last time I went to church. My faith has carried me a long way. It’s Sheilaism. Just my own little voice.” So succinctly did she verbalize extreme individualism that ever since the name Sheilaism designates many who live their lives accordingly. The spirituality revolution that is going on assumes that the individual knows best. The idea is that

a person who is independent of organized religion and from centuries of religious indoctrination and tradition, becomes more free and truly spiritual. They bristle at authoritative approaches to their personal spirituality and relationship with God. Individualism usually leads to isolation and loneliness. It encourages us to think of ourselves as self-sufficient and self-enclosed. What is lost is a sense of communal togetherness,

support during stressful times of life and death, and the absence of fulfilling rituals of passage such as baptisms, weddings, funerals, etc. As the years go by and questions about life and death multiply, extreme individualists experience an increasing spiritual illiteracy. They lack a fuller and sustaining grasp of crucial beliefs such as baptism, the incarnation, resurrection, redemption, and an adult understanding of scripture. Authoritarianism and

Fraud alert one way to prevent identity theft One of the most popular ways for criminals to steal your identity is to try to get a credit card in your name. If they succeed they can run up thousands of dollars in charges, and you may not find out until the thief has fled. Amy Winegardner of Wyoming suspected someone was trying to steal her identity when a financial company notified her about a credit card for which she had never applied. “I got a letter saying my husband and I had applied for a credit card and that we were declined. I would never had applied for one, and I’m like surprised,” she said. Winegardner was not only surprised but a little worried too about what such a credit application really means. “I think somebody got information on me and applied for a credit card and … but my credit’s not the best so it was declined – which was great,” she said. This is not the first time something like this has happened. “In 2008 there was (an unauthorized) withdrawal out of my checking account from a German file hosting company,” Winegardner said. I had Winegardner check her credit report on the Internet. She said she hadn’t checked it in quite a while. She needed to look for unusual things like unauthorized credit card applications and accounts.

Winegardner checked and found nothing out of the ordinary. Howe v e r , Howard Ain b e c a u s e Hey Howard! s o m e o n e did try to open a credit card in her name, she filed a fraud alert with the credit bureau. She says she never realized this was an action she could and should take. “No, I didn’t until we were reading the ‘requently asked questions.’ Like it said, the initial alert is for 90 days and the extended one is for seven years.” You can place an extended fraud alert on your credit bureau report if you’ve been the victim of identity theft and provide the credit bureau with a police identity theft report. Fraud alerts prevent an identity thief from opening any accounts in your name. You only need to contact one of the three credit reporting companies to have an alert placed on all their reports. When a business sees the alert it must first verify your identity before issuing credit. Be advised, this may cause some delays if you apply for credit. You should check your credit report yearly and can do so for free at Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12. Write to

Tempt them with some homemade apple rollups Today’s the first day of autumn and even though the temperature is at an alltime high, it still feels like fall outside, what with the leaves falling from the trees and crinkling underfoot, and the apples ripening on our tree. (We don’t have many apples this year, and I have to be vigilant about picking them before the deer find them).

And I’ve had a slew of requests to make homemade applesauce and “fruit rollups like you buy but without all the artificial stuff.” I’m happy to say I can help on both counts!

Homemade applesauce, fruit rollups/leather

I make this from apples,

but pears work well, too. Making your own lets you be in control of t h e amount of Rita sugar, if Heikenfeld any, you Rita’s kitchen add.To see my online video for making homemade applesauce, check out my blog at


Wash, core and cut 3 to 5 pounds of fruit into chunks (apples or pears). Leave skin on because the pectin in the peel helps remove cholesterol.

Cooking options:

Crockpot – Spray pot. Put fruit in. Cook on low for six to eight hours or high for three to five hours until fruit is soft enough to mash. Stovetop – Place in heavy or nonstick large pot. Add up to 1 cup water, cider or apple juice (to keep fruit from sticking), and simmer until fruit is soft. You may have to add a bit more liquid. Careful – the mixture tends to sputter up. Oven – (my preferred method). I use a restaurant

steam table pan but use anything that has sides and which will hold fruit. Spray pan. Cook in 350-degree oven until soft.

To purée:

Run through food mill or sieve, blender or food processor. Or just chunk up with a potato masher. If desired, sweeten to taste with sugar or a substitute. I usually don’t add any sweetener. Add cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice to taste. Do this while fruit is still warm. Now you have the best tasting applesauce ever!

Drying to make fruit rollups/leather:

Spray cookie sheets. Pour puree evenly onto sheets, about 1⁄4-inch deep. I dry mine in the sun. (I’ll cover with cheesecloth if bees are a problem and bring it in at night or if it rains). It takes about three days to make the rollups. You can also dry it in a warm oven. Mine only goes down to 170 so I prop the door open. You don’t want it to cook too quickly or it will be hard. It will take anywhere from four to eight hours or more depending upon the kind of apples, etc. If it’s late

Fishing is good this time of year was going to be cooler but today as I write this the temperature will be close to 90 degrees. Well it will get cooler sometime. Last Saturday Ruth Ann and I went up to the Ratliff’s for their shrimp harvest. This was the second Saturday. They have two ponds. The amount of frogs that were in the pond was probably in the dozens. There were some big ones but most were small. When the water came out into the stilling basin there were a lot of tadpoles along with the shrimp as the water got shallow. There were folks that would wade into the mud picking up some shrimp. Ruth Ann was sitting in the truck watching these fellers wade in the mud and some of them would get stuck then another would help pull the boot out of the mud. When the water got low around the drain pipe, Mr. Ratliff has a tank of water on a trailer to flush the pipe. Then the shrimp really get heavy coming into the stilling basin. One of their daughter’s

waded out to the drain pipe to get a section off so the water and shrimp could flow better. The water was better than knee deep. Their children like their parents are hard workers and don’t hesitate to get the job done. They are good farmers and their crops show it. The Kinners from the Riverside Coffee Mill in Batavia were there and when the kids saw the baby pigs Ethan said “I want one.” I imagine the folks in Batavia would be very thrilled as would his parents to have one. When the Ratliff’s took a basket of shrimp they put them into clear water to wash them. After this they put them in ice water to kill them before selling them. These fresh water shrimp were big and the folks were buying them several pounds at a time. The Ole Fisherman and wife say congratulations to a hard working family. See you at the Brown County Fair. The Monroe Grange Card party will begin at 7 p.m. Oct. 2 We play Euchre and other board games. The charge is $1.50 and there

are prizes and food is available. Come and George enjoy an Rooks evening with friends. Ole Start your Fisherman week by going to the church of your choice and praise the Good Lord. God bless all.

Howdy folks, Last week we went to the Batavia Station Restaurant for the P.E.R.I. meeting. There was a nice crowd, but we need more people to be involved in this. This is the union for Public Employees Retirement Incorporated. This is something each state of Ohio retired workers needs to keep informed about how their retirement funds, which they have invested, are being handled. Ruth Ann and I went fishing last Friday morning and caught a fine bunch of crappie. They need to be 9 inches long. We cleaned 21 fine crappie 9 to 11 inches long. This bunch made four big packs for winter eating. Along with the fish there will be plenty of vegetables and of course cornbread. According to the R.F.D. television station there is wheat harvested someplace in this world every month of the year. They showed a “spelt” grain that takes the place of wheat. I was talking to a feller about the corn head for the self-propelled combine. He said the item that really surprised him was a 40-foot bush hog that will fold up for road travel. There are folks in this country who can master problems and create big equipment like the one we saw that can pick up 10 round bales of hay and then drops one at a time. Our garden is doing good. The radishes are ready to eat, the spinach is doing good along with the broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and green onions. We are so lucky so far the deer haven’t gotten into these vegetables. I had better “peck on wood.” There are different ways folks are using to keep deer out. A neighbor said he uses caution tape, the slight little breeze will make the tape move and that seems to scare the deer so we are trying it. It looked like the weather
