City police help with zoning

By Kellie Geist

One day a week, a Milford police officer is patrolling the streets to help address zoning issues. Police Chief Mark Machan the officer’s assignment is twofold. “We are trying to accomplish two things: To have better communication about the zoning issues that go on and to stay on top of those issues that are detracting from the overall beauty of the city and neighborhoods,” he said.

According to the city’s zoning and traffic codes, the police can issue warning and citations for a variety of zoning-related issues, including property maintenance and certain traffic restrictions. “We can step in with those things, especially if it’s a safety issue,” Machan said. He said the police officers already are routinely out on the streets, it’s just that this particular officer is looking for zoning issues and checking-up on zoning issues other police officers report. “It’s not inhibiting his police

While most people spent their summer vacations lounging by a beach or pool, Miami Township firefighter/paramedic Dan Berkebile was working in a free medical clinic in Peru. Berkebile spent time in Nauta, Peru, and Iquitos, Peru, with Springdale Nazarene Church in late June. As a paramedic, he helped provide medical care to Peruvians who oftentimes had nowhere else to turn. FULL STORY, B1

work, driving around the community is part of what we do anyway,” Machan said. “We’ve been doing this for about a month and I think it’s going very well.” The city’s code enforcement officer, Milford’s only employee dedicated to zoning, is part-time. Assistant City Manager Pam Holbrook, who oversees zoning, said having the police officer’s assistance one day a week is helpful. “We are trying to be more responsive to citizen concerns and complaints. If we go through the (code enforcement officer), we

have to send out letters for compliance, which could take time. With the officer, we have the ability to knock on someone’s door and take a more direct approach,” she said. “The goal is not to be heavy handed, it’s just to be more responsive to issues and to make the process more speedy,” Holbrook said. “It’s been going very well.” Most zoning issues are addressed on a complaint basis.

Local dignitaries, veterans and their families will gather at Miami Meadows Park Saturday, Oct. 23, to break ground on a Korean War memorial. The memorial will be built in a section of the Miami Township park and will feature a 12-footby-5-foot granite laser etching of a photograph veteran Bill Knepp took during the war on top of a hill in Korea. 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. “It’s taken too long for the forgotten war to hit home,” Vilardo said. “It’s a war that should be recognized. Too many men and women gave up their lives.” The Miami Township trustees, the Miami Township Police Department Honor Guard and other groups will be at the groundbreaking, during which a granite sign for the Spirit of ‘76 Memorial & Arboretum Gardens will be unveiled. The sign, valued at about $6,000, is a donation from Maggard Memorials & Laser Art, the company hired to create the

Milford’s five-year budget shows plenty of red ink By Jackie Broo

In a special budget work session Oct. 12, Milford school board members began work on improving the district’s bleak five-year forecast. School board president George Lucas called the meeting an opportunity to look at the district’s finances and find potential cuts in expenses. Milford Treasurer Randy Seymour said in light of growing expenditures and falling revenues it was unlike anything “we’ve ever seen before in the history of education.” Staff salaries were set by recently negotiated contracts. The agreements call for a 2-percent increase in 2011, a 1-percent increase in 2012 and 2013 for teachers and other staff. The district will have a 5percent increase this year in benefit costs for health insurance. With a 3-percent reduction in expenditures or $1.8 million, the 2011 ending cash balance is expected to be $11 million. With $1.8 million in cuts in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, the board expects a negative ending cash balance of $25 million by 2015. However, Seymour is expected to bring a new

five-year forecast to the board in January with additional cuts to bring the 2015 ending cash balance down to a negative $15 million. From 2010 through 2015, the district is looking at revenue losses of $5 million: Duke Energy, $548,000; state support, $2.8 million; reimbursement from the state for the tangible personal property tax, $1.5 million; and $124,760 for other items. Seymour said the board would have to consider a new levy sooner rather than later. Superintendent Bob Farrell said some of the culprits for increased costs are unfunded mandates that include: Preschool requirements for special education, supply fees for free/reduced lunches, all-day kindergarten, body mass index, No Child Left Behind and financial literacy classes. The district received oneyear wavers on all-day kindergarten and body mass index. Board member Gary Knepp said it was obvious some programs would have to be cut, while keeping the quality of instruction high. Lucas said the board needs to get in front of the “coming train wreck.” Preliminary discussions about programs included Lucas asking about students

bringing their own technology, like smart phones, to school to reduce expenses. Technology Coordinator Nancy Ochs explained that upgrades to the network infrastructure would expand wireless capabilities on all school campuses to improving student accessibility. This approach is expected to actually reduce the technology costs. Board members, looking for other ways to cut costs, asked about the athletic department, energy usage (solar energy), online teaching material and electives. Farrell said the entire athletic budget would be reviewed to look for cost reductions such as coaching staffs at the high school. Nancy House, director of Secondary Curriculum Instruction and Assessment, said many teaching materials are available online. Operations Manager Jeff Johnson reported his staff and transportation department are looking for ways to do more with less including changing bus routes to decrease energy usage. Advanced light meters and occupancy light censors in the gym and rest rooms will help reduce energy costs, he said. The meters are now creating energy reductions with ability to provide timely usage information.

Miami Twp. fire captain named Instructor of the Year Miami Township Fire Capt. Brian Gulat was awarded the state’s first ever Ohio Fire Service Instructor of the Year award during a ceremony at the Ohio Department of Public Safety main office in Columbus Oct. 7.Gulat was recognized for his outstanding contributions to fire and EMS training both in Miami Township as well as his involvement in various training programs around the region. Gulat was chosen from among many nominees

from fire departments across the state. As part of the selection process, the awards committee reviewed information about each nominee without knowing the names of the nominees. This is the first year such an award was given. “I am proud of Captain Gulat’s accomplishments, and pleased that he has received statewide recognition for his expertise and efforts in developing, delivering and supporting quality training for firefighters, emergency medical techni-

cians and the public,” said Fire Chief Jim Whitworth. “The impact of his contributions extends well beyond Miami Township, reaching many departments and communities throughout our region.” Gulat has been a member of the Miami Township Fire & EMS Department since its creation in 1994 and served the community for many years prior to that as a member of the Miamiville Fire Department and the Milford-Miami Township Emergency Medical Service.

Benefit for Les Sanders Nov. 5 Members and friends of the Milford Assembly of God are planning a benefit dinner and praise service Friday, Nov. 5. All money raised at the benefit will go toward helping Pastor Les Sanders with medical costs. Sanders is recovering from injuries he sustained in a motorcycle in September. Church member and benefit committee member Mary Knight said Sanders is doing well, but is still in a lot of pain and needs more surgery. “God has been good and it seems like every time he goes to see the doctor, they are amazed at how well he’s doing,” she said. “But he still has a long way to go.”

Sanders, 59, has been the pastor at Milford Assembly of God since 1987. Since the crash, other local pastors have volunteered to lead the services at Milford Assembly of God. “It’s really brought us all together,” Knight said. The benefit will start with dinner at 5:30 p.m. There will be soup, salad, sandwiches, desserts and refreshments. Donations are requested. Following dinner, at around 7 p.m., there will be a praise service for Sanders with a donation collection. Everyone is invited to attend. Milford Assembly of God is at 1301 Ohio 131.

Treatment program increases jail space By John Seney

A new program to treat non-violent offenders will open up more beds at the Clermont County Jail. The jail, which was built to hold 512 inmates, can house only 240 because of cutbacks in the number of corrections officers. Within the past year, the jail had to close 80 beds because of budget restraints, said

Clermont County Sheriff A.J. “Tim” Rodenberg. This has forced many convicted offenders to be put on a waiting list to serve their time. The new program is funded by a $50,000 grant from the Ohio Department of Public Safety. Clermont County commissioners Sept. 15 approved the grant and a $9,982.91 cash match from the general fund. Doug Brothers, assistant to the county administrator, said the program will treat

non-violent offenders sentenced for drug, alcohol or probation violation offenses. The Talbert House of Cincinnati will administer the program using a section of the jail that had been closed off. Brothers said the program can serve up to 20 inmates. The participants will be transferred from the general jail population. The emphasis will be on rehabilitation rather than just incarceration. “It’s an effort to halt the revolving door

of inmates at the jail,” Brothers said. “This will allow us to get back 20 more beds for more serious offenders,” Rodenberg said. “It’s a way of getting more jail beds without adding staff.” Rodenberg said the program was a positive step in reversing the trend of losing beds at the jail. “It’s not going to solve the problem, but it should help,” he said. “If the program is successful, it might be expanded.”

BRIEFLY Fundraiser

Ten percent of all food sales between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. Monday, Nov. 1, will go toward helping this organization that packages food for children in need.

In their newly opened facility in Miami Township on Ohio 28, they package food that is specially formulated to meet the nutritional needs of malnourished children. In the last two years, the organization has packaged and shipped 3.5 million meals to food banks throughout the United States and the world.

Jobs eliminated

BATAVIA – The Clermont County commissioners Oct. 11 approved eliminating 17 full-time positions and one part-time position at the Department of Job and Family Services. The positions are vacant and the action resulted in no one losing a job. Mike Pride, director of the department, said the job eliminations were part of a number of revisions in the organization. None of the revisions resulted in additional spending. The changes resulted in the staffing level for the department being reduced from 239 to 221.5 full-time equivalent positions, Pride said. “We did not have the money to fill the positions and they are vacant,” he said. Commissioner Bob Proud thanked Pride for streamlining his department.

Jungle Jim’s to open in Eastgate By Kellie Geist

Union Township will be welcoming 300 to 400 new jobs when Jungle Jim’s opens a second store. The trustees signed an agreement with “Jungle Jim” Jim Bonaminio during a special meeting Wednesday, Oct. 6. The store is expected to open in about a year and will be Jungle Jim’s second location. The original store is in Fairfield and sells a wide variety of typical groceries as well as international and specialty foods. Township Administrator Ken Geis started talking to Jungle Jim’s in the spring. “We contacted Jungle Jim’s in April as soon as we had notice that Bigg’s was going to leave ... They initially were not interested, but we’ve been talking ever since,” Geis said. “We went to them, as we’ve done with some other folks, and said, ‘We’ll partner with you on these projects. We want you here.’” “We try to provide a very

welcoming atmosphere for businesses in the region,” he said. Union Township Trustee Tim Donnellon said the trustees’ have aggressively worked to make sure Union Township continues to grow despite economic challenges. “We have the right mix of services, demographics, traffic and location,” he said. “That makes us attractive.” Geis said Jungle Jim’s is expected to bring between 300 and 400 new jobs to Union Township when it opens. “These are brand new jobs, not cannibalization from another community. This is not a company relocating, they are opening a new site,” he said. The new store may require some redevelopment of the Bigg’s space, Geis said, and will be a welcome addition to the Eastgate area. Donnellon added that Jungle Jim’s will be a solid compliment to the existing businesses in Union Township. The area already hosts

a Kroger, Meijer, Wal-Mart and Sam’s, but Jungle Jim’s offerings are different, he said. “They sell the every day grocery (items) but also a lot of things you can’t find anywhere else,” he said. “It will be a good addition.” The agreement says the township will buy the property for $7.5 million and Jungle Jim’s will lease it for eight years for a total of about $10.8 million. The Clermont County CIC also may be available to provide grants or loans for property improvements as long as a revenue source is available, said CIC vice president David Spinney. The agreement also says Jungle Jim’s will agree to a Tax Increment Financing district and a Joint Economic Development District on the property. Donnellon said the township can create a JEDD with any city within one jurisdiction, but would probably look to partner with Milford. Milford and Union Township already have a JEDD together at Ivy Pointe.

Improvements planned at water, sewer plants By John Seney

Major improvements are planned at Clermont County’s water and wastewater treatment plants. Lyle Bloom, sanitary engineer with the county water resources department, told the county commissioners Oct. 11 a $6-million project at the Lower East Fork Wastewater Treatment would increase the plant’s capacity. He said the plant now is not able to fully treat sewage during heavy periods of rain. During a heavy rain, the sewage must be partially treated and discharged into Lower East Fork of the Little Miami River. He said the improvements would increase pumping capacity at the plant and solve the problem of wet weather flow. Bids for the work are

scheduled to be opened Thursday, Oct. 21. Money for the project would come from an Ohio Public Works Commission grant and the capital improvement fund. The work is scheduled to begin in early 2011 and take about 18 months. Thomas Yeager, director of utilities, said past complaints about odors from the plant were addressed by improvements completed in 2007. He said there have not been any complaints in the last three years. Yeager said another $22million project would expand the treatment of drinking water at the Bob McEwen Water Treatment Plant, which draws water from Harsha Lake at East

Fork State Park. The project will increase pumping capacity from 10million gallons a day to 20million gallons a day, he said. Bids for the work are scheduled to be opened Thursday, Oct. 28. Yeager said money for the project would come from the capital improvement fund and the issuance of bonds. The work is scheduled to begin in early 2011 and take about 18 months. Commissioner Bob Proud asked how the water system was doing during the drought. Yeager said the system was able to handle periods of high demand. “We’re meeting the needs of the people,” he said.

County moves money to pay for canceling furloughs By Kellie Geist

Clermont County officials will not use the county’s carry-over fund balance to avoid furloughs this year. During the commissioners’ Spinney meeting Monday, Oct. 4, Administrator Dave Spinney recommended more than 70 supplemental appropriations between departments and funds. “Rather than increase the department appropriations, we realigned the funds to cover not having furloughs,” he said. The transfers, which the commissioners approved, paid for all but about $45 of the $200,000 incurred by canceling the furloughs. The commissioners announced last September that some, if not all nonbargaining unit employees, would need to take unpaid days off work to save about $200,000. However, when

Motorcyclist killed in crash A motorcyclist was killed in a crash Thursday, Sept. 30, in Milford. The crash occurred 8:47 p.m. on Ohio 126, just north of Shawnee Run Road in Milford, said Lt. Randy McElfresh, commander of the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Batavia post, in a press release. Miles Nixon, 48, of Maineville, Ohio, was driving a 2001 Triumph motorcycle north on Ohio 126. He failed to negotiate a righthand curve, traveled left of center and was struck by two oncoming vehicles, McElfresh said. The first vehicle was a 2006 Mercury Mountaineer driven by a juvenile. The second vehicle, a 1996 Ford Mustang, was driven by Shawn Amann, 29, of Batavia. Nixon was pronounced dead at Bethesda North Hospital shortly after the crash. The other involved drivers were not injured.

the budget was approved, the board decided to postpone, and eventually cancel, the furloughs. Budget Director Sukie Scheetz said the commissioners originally planned to take the $200,000 from the county’s fund balance to keep employees at work,

but better-than-anticipated revenues, unfilled positions and health care contributions have made that unnecessary. “It worked out OK and it means we won’t have to go into the fund balance as much,” she said. Commissioner Ed

Humphrey was happy to hear the revenues and spending cuts have almost paid for the potential budget hole left by not taking furloughs. “This just proves it (not mandating furloughs) was an appropriate action,” he said. “The money is there.”

Milford to give veterans diplomas

By Mary Dannemiller

The Milford Exempted Village School District is looking for men and women whose high school education was interrupted by World War II, the Vietnam War or the Koran War. The district is holding its third annual graduation ceremony for veterans who left Milford High School to serve in the military at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 7, in the

school’s auditorium. “It’s getting more difficult each year because so many people have already come forward so we have to look more diligently,” said Superintendent Bob Farrell. So far, the district has found only male veterans to receive diplomas, but Farrell said the state of Ohio also allows them to give diplomas to women who left high school to help with the war effort. “We’re really looking for men and women whose Milford educa-

tion was interrupted,” he said. “Women may have been working in the arms department or in something else in the army.” Aside from making the ceremony more diverse, the district also is opening it up to veterans from around Clermont County who received a Purple Heart, said district spokeswoman Meg Krsacok. “Those veterans from Clermont County who have earned a purple heart are encouraged to attend so they can be recognized,” she said.

Farrell said he hoped veterans would come forward and contact the district office about receiving their diplomas. “I think at times there have been veterans who felt like they maybe didn’t want to admit they never got a chance to finish high school, but they were doing the most noble service for our country,” Farrell said. “Their education got interrupted and they should take advantage of this opportunity because they certainly deserve it.”

The district also is looking for veterans to speak at the elementary schools, junior high school and high school Thursday, Nov. 11, for Veterans Day. “At every one of our schools, we honor veterans for their service to our country with different programs so I invite all veterans to contact those schools about participating,” Farrell said. Veterans interested in receiving a diploma should contact Darla Dobbs, 831-1314 by Friday, Oct. 29.

Milford school fees can be paid online By Mary Dannemiller


The Clermont Northeastern FFA members attended the 48th annual Farm Science Review. From left are Jason Arnett, Dennis Bradley and Casey Yeats.

FFA members attend Farm Science Review The Clermont Northeastern FFA members attended the 49th annual Farm Science Review held at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center near Columbus Sept. 22. This was an educational field

trip where members could observe new farm equipment, field demonstrations and more than 600 agricultural exhibits. Anything that is new in the agricultural industry could be seen

at the review. Students from all four of the agricultural programs at CNE were asked to write a one-page report on what each observed at the review, said instructor David Jelley.

Paying student fees just got a lot easier for parents with students in the Milford Exempted Village School District. The district is offering parents the opportunity to pay fees for everything ranging from athletics to classroom supplies through EZpay. “A lot of people use the Internet to purchase all kinds of things now,” said George Lucas, Milford board of education president. “It also takes away some parent concern where they might give a check to their third grader and hope it’s going to make it to the school building.” EZpay is accessible through the district’s website,, and requires parents to log in using their child’s student identification number, said Treasurer Randy Seymour. “It’s being piloted in other districts and then the Hamilton County Computer Consortium took an organized consortium purchase of the services, which got us reduced fees,” he said. “We’re trying to be more customer friendly with not much cost to the district.” The service does have a $2 processing fee users must pay, but Seymour said the fee could decrease or disappear if enough

people pay online. “If we get lots of activity then we can analyze it in the future and start waiving that fee,” he said. “I was told in the first year, we could see up to 25 percent of constituents do it this way.” The service’s low cost to the district and the convenience it offers parents are the best reasons to have online payment as an option, Lucas said. “I wish they had it when my kids were in school,” he said. “The Internet is a part of life for everybody and anytime you can do something for the public that doesn’t really cost us anything, it’s good.” Lucas said he also hoped it would help more parents pay the fees on time since the service is available 24 hours a day, seven days per week. “Here’s a way to pay if you’re down to the last minute where you can instantly go online, pay and be up-to-date,” he said. If the program is a success, Seymour said it could be used to pay for everything from yearbooks to prom tickets. “In the future, we want to include lunch room meals and eventually get into yearbooks and prom tickets, but you have to do it gradually,” he said.

Two CNE guidance counselors win grants By John Seney

Two students earn AP Scholar Awards Two students at Clermont Northeastern High School have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on Advanced Placement exams. Alex Leguillon and Zach Yaggi qualified for the awards during the 2009-2010 school year by completing three or more AP exams with grades of 3 or higher. The

scores are based on a scale from 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest. The College Board's Advanced Placement Program provides students with the opportunity to take college-level courses while still in high school, and to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP exams. About 18 percent of the nearly

1.7 million students worldwide who took AP exams performed at a sufficiently high level to also earn an AP Scholar Award. Yaggi, who was a junior last year, will have one more year in which to complete college-level work and possibly earn a higherlevel AP Scholar Award. Leguillon graduated from CNE in May 2010.

Two guidance counselors at Clermont Northeastern schools won grants to expand opportunities for their students. Ashley Strasburger, a counselor at the high school, and Martha Rauen, a counselor at the middle school, are recipients of the Wal-Mart Strive for Excellence grants awarded by the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio in partnership with the Wal-Mart Foundation. This year’s grants ranged from $500 to $2,500. Strasburger plans to use her $2,485 grant to provide students with more opportunities to visit colleges. Buses will be used to take students on visits to UC Clermont College, Northern Kentucky University and other colleges. “It will allow the students to explore the possibility of a postsecondary education,” she said. The visits will give the students a chance to tour the campuses as well as sit in classrooms. “It will get them to experience a day in the life of a college student,” she said. Strasburger said the program

will get under way the first of the year. Rauen plans to use her $800 grant to pay the expenses for a variety of activities offered by the CNE Middle School Girls’ Club. The club was created last year with a grant from the Clermont County Mental Health and Recovery Board. “The goal is promote respect,” Rauen said. The club members participate in a number of activities including crafts and picnics. It is open to all girls at the middle school. Attendance at most activities ranges from 40 to 60, Rauen said. The mental health grant was renewed this year, and the addition of the new grant will allow the club to expand its activities. One new activity is a trip to UC Clermont College Oct. 28 for a campus tour. The girls also will attend a live production of “Magic of the Night” at the college. “It will get them to expand their horizons,” Rauen said of the college visit. Rauen said school librarian Sherri Newberry and Spanish teacher Ashleigh Ten Eyck also help with the club.

Milford girls’ soccer tops in FAVC East By Nick Dudukovich

The Milford High School girls’ soccer team recently celebrated its third straight Fort Ancient Valley Conference Eastern Division championship. Milford’s (10-3-2, 7-10) record through Oct. 14, earned the squad the No. 6 seed in the Cincinnati 2

Division-I sectional tournament. Several girls have been responsible for the Eagles’ success and will continue to be a factor for the team as it begins the postseason against Western Brown on Oct. 20. Junior Morgan Wolcott has led by example for the Eagles this season. Through the Little Miami

Taylor Jones scored Goshen’s lone goal.

match Oct. 12, Wolcott accounted for eight goals and 12 assists on the season. Eagles coach Pat Winkler knows his team is fortunate to have a player of Wolcott’s skill set on the team. “When you watch Morgan play, you’re seeing a kid with athleticism, skill, determination, hustle...she’s dedicated to her craft and one of the most humble kids you’ll meet,” Winkler said. “She’s not interested at all in stats, but interested in doing whatever it takes for the team.” At goalie, the Eagles have been boosted by the return of senior Kylie Gullage. Gullage, who was first-team all-FAVC in 2008, missed her entire junior year because of a knee injury she sustained in the spring of 2009. “I was pleased not only with her rehab during last year, but the way she has come out and has played this year,” Winkler said. Gullage is making the most of her last year on the team, and has recorded four shutouts and 44 saves in eight games played through Oct. 15. The squad is also getting contributions from junior forward Kelly Yee and senior midfielder Lindsey Bartsch, who have combined for 13 goals on the season. In addition to the success of the squad’s upperclassmen, the Lady Eagles are reaping the benefits having three sophomores who can impact a game. Midfielder Kiersten Johnson (three goals), forward Kayla Byrnside (four goals,


Milford captain Tori Calderhead (4) battles with an opponent for position during a match earlier this fall four assists), and defender Meghan Canter have provided Winkler with depth on the sidelines that he doesn’t hesitate to use. “All three of them are getting anywhere from (being in the) starting (lineup), to significant minutes in all of the games,” Winkler said. “They’ve taken the example the seniors have set and put forth a good work ethic every day.” If the Eagles are to have success and win the

school’s second district championship in four years, the squad will be required to play good soccer, according to Winkler. The third-year Milford coach also knows that winning in southwest Ohio is no easy task. “If you look at all the quality programs in Cincinnati, if you can win a districts in Cincinnati or Dayton, you’ve beaten some good teams a long the way,” he said.

Milford golfer makes postseason debut

For McNick, there’s no place like home

By Nick Dudukovich

Archbishop McNicholas High School finally played a homecoming game at home. The school hadn’t hosted a varsity football game since the late 1950s. Instead, it would have to play its home dates at schools such as Turpin, Anderson and Mariemont. That changed when the Rockets hosted Purcell Marian in the inaugural game at McNicholas High School’s new Penn Station Stadium Oct. 16. In front of packed crowd, the Rockets easily defeated the Cavaliers, 44-8. Senior co-captain Jack Dooling appreciated having the support of the fans, who packed the auxiliary bleachers (the stadium project won’t be completed until 2012) on the east sideline during the contest. “To be able to play in front of a crowd that big and win the inaugural game, and (to have) all the support from the McNick community, because sometimes, we’d get lost with Turpin and Anderson down the’s great to see we have the support,” Dooling said. Quarterback Matt Staubach shared Dooling’s attitude about school pride. “It was amazing, to go out and have a win like we did, in front of the entire school, and entire community,” Staubach said, “It just felt great.”

For Milford High School golfer Ali Habermehl, the future is bright. Habermehl, who is only a sophomore, recently competed in the region’s Division-I district championships at Weatherwax Golf Course in Middletown. Although Habermehl tied for 50th in the tournament, she welcomed the opportunity to play with some of southwest Ohio’s top golfers. “I was pretty excited because I’m a (10th-grader) and I got to make it to districts,” Habermehl said. “It’s kind of nerve-racking at the same time though, because all of those kids have been there for a long time … I think (competing) will help me be less nervous when I compete with other people (because) it takes good experience to be in tournaments.” Statistics indicate that Habermehl, 15, could make an impact in the postseason during her two remaining years at Milford. She compiled the 10th best average in the Fort Ancient Valley Conference during the 2010 campaign by averaging 47.60 strokes-per-nine-holes. During the sectional tournament at Walden Pond Golf Course on Oct. 4, she shot a 44 on the final nine

Ali Habermehl compiled the 10th best average in the Fort Ancient Valley Conference, 47.60 strokes-per-nine-holes. holes after opening her round with a 51. She finished the tournament 23over-par 95, which, was good enough to grab her one of the four district qualifying spots available. The performance thrilled Habermehl, who said she didn’t expect to advance to the next round. “My coach told me I was in the running to (advance),” she said. “I didn’t really expect (to move on), only because I shot so bad on (the first nine holes).” Habermehl, who started playing golf at age 10, said she will engage in weight training during the offseason to prepare for 2011, in addition to working out the kinks in her game. “My coach (Sandy Garrison) told me I would probably need to go to a gym to get more muscular so I could hit the ball farther,” she said. “I’ll probably do that, and once the courses start closing, I’ll probably just start working on my short game, because that was my biggest problem this season.”

Area teams fall in week 8 Winton Woods 55, Milford 14

McNick’s Dillon Stanfield goes airborne as he crosses the goal line against Purcell Marian during the Rockets’ 448 victory at Penn Station Stadium on Oct. 16. The Rockets first points on the new field came when senior linebacker Ryan McMillan tackled Purcell Marian’s E.J. Burnett for a safety with 5:32 left in the first quarter. Staubach added the Rockets’ first touchdown at the facility four plays later when he rushed up the middle for a 4-yard touchdown. Staubach said he was excited to score the first touchdown at the new stadium.

McNick coach Steve Klonne, who will retire after 25 years of coaching in the Cincinnati area at the end of the season, was pleased with the win, but also glad the squad could start focusing on its next game. Through week seven, the Rockets were ranked No. 4 in the Ohio High School Athletic Association’s region 12 computer rankings. Roger Bacon, whom McNick beat 21-14 Oct. 7, was ranked first in that same poll. Dooling believes the Roger Bacon win helped McNick make a statement about how good a team the Rockets can be. Klonne, who has 197 career wins, relishes the fact that McNick, who would be in the postseason if the playoffs started today, controls its own destiny (the top eight teams from each region receive playoff berths). McNick travels to Dayton Carroll Oct. 22, and ends the regular season at Badin Oct. 29.

Clermont wake up call

As a conservative voter living in Clermont County, I got a wakeup call at the Clermont Tea Party meeting held Tuesday, Oct. 5. During the presentation on “Tax Incentive Financing,” known as “TIFs,” they showed the voter where some of their tax dollars are going. They showed the good side and the bad side of “TIFs.” The bad side of which is debt that we the voter didn’t want. I want smaller government and more transparency for my township and county, that’s why I’m voting for Archie Wilson. Archie will track down these types of government transactions and see that the voter is informed of where their tax dollars are going. Come Nov. 2 I encourage you to vote for a conservative candidate Archie Wilson for Clermont County commissioner. Lloyd Acres Union Township

Thanks to Milford Boosters

On behalf of the Milford tennis players, parents and coaching staff, I would like to thank the Boosters for their pledge to finance the new tennis courts at the high school. They have not only benefited the varsity and junior varsity teams at the high school, but also the junior high club team and the junior high and high school physical education Lifetime Fitness classes. They have also been used frequently by the residents of Milford and Miami Township. In the inaugural season, the girl’s high school varsity team had a 13-4 record and the girl’s junior varsity team had a 14-4 record and placed first in the GCTCA tournament last weekend. What a way to break them in. Boosters, your support of athletics for the children in the district is greatly appreciated. Go Eagles. Lisa Essig Milford

Milford open house

I attended the Milford High School Open House Saturday, Oct. 9, and toured the additions built onto the high school. Although my main purpose was to tour the new teachers’ workrooms, science and computer labs, and enlarged cafeteria, I found myself spending more time reading the assorted walls. The tributes to the late Dr. Ray Bauer were very moving and the athletic achievements noted in the Athletic Hall of Fame were impressive. However, my favorite addition, since the last time I walked into Milford High School, were photos on the wall of students who made academic achievements – the valedictorians.

Vote for Scott Croswell

I feel compelled to write in response to Tim Rudd’s attacks on Scott Croswell in his guest column of Oct. 6. Apparently, Mr. Rudd is confused as to the true definition of conservative principles. Scott’s work as a county commissioner on economic development has been geared toward replacing the lost jobs and tax revenue from county businesses that have suffered too greatly during the recession. Scott understands that when fewer dollars are coming in to the county, departmental budgets must be reduced accord-

ingly until that revenue is replaced. Recently, certain elected officials and department heads, many loyal to Rudd, objected to cutting their budgets during this time of decreased tax revenues coming to the county. Several wanted to waste your taxpayer dollars on wants instead of needs. That sounds more like President Obama’s liberal spending habits than Croswell’s history of fiscal conservatism to me. Scott Croswell will continue to make sure your tax dollars are spent wisely and in your best interest, not the best interests of the county GOP leadership, regardless of the dirty politics and smear campaigns waged against him. I encourage you to vote for Scott Crowell, independent for Clermont County commissioner. Glen Olson Miami Township

Wilson will be accountable

Get out and vote Nov. 2 for Archie Wilson Clermont County commissioner. Archie is endorsed by the Fraternal Order of Police, Cincinnati Right to Life, Citizens for Community Values and the Ohio Tea Party. These are endorsements from groups that represent the same qualities Archie holds himself up to, not individual endorsements from Rhino politicians his opponent counts as endorsements.

Ferenc will uphold constitution as judge I ask for your vote on Nov. 2, for judge of the Clermont County Common Pleas Court. I will bring to this important judicial position over 32 years of balanced, active and hands-on experience in this court. This broad base of experience has enabled me to develop the perspective, insight and judgment critical for a common pleas court judge. I was an award winning assistant prosecuting attorney in this county, serving from 1979 through 1987. From 1983 through 1987, I was the chief felony assistant prosecutor. In this capacity, I successfully prosecuted multiple murder trials and scores of other serious felony crimes including violent sexual assaults on children and adults, home invasions, drug trafficking and white collar crimes. I saw first-hand the trauma suffered by victims of crimes. Their rights need to be protected. For the past 23 years I have been engaged in the private practice of civil and criminal law with Ely & True Attorneys in Batavia. I have expanded my trial experience by successfully litigating serious and complex civil trials such as wrongful death, personal injury, business disputes, property rights disputes and a variety of other similar cases like those I will confront as a judge. I have represented criminal defendants as well. My three-plus decades of active participation in our justice system has reinforced my belief that the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights are the most important documents written by man to establish and maintain a free and open government and protect its citizens from an overreaching and

Accountability, integrity, honor and trust are qualities Archie has shown in his commitment to God, family and community. Archie is a true conservative that would be a valued asset to Clermont County and he would be honored to serve all the people of Clermont County. Archie has served Batavia Township for 10 years with his conservative business principles saved the township thousands of dollars and increased services to the people without the burden of taxes to the county as seen in other townships throughout the county. There are no TIF (Tax Incentive Financing) developments in Batavia Township that were instituted by the township. Accountability, integrity, honor and trust are qualities we need in Clermont County. Vote for these qualities. Vote for Archie Wilson, Clermont County commissioner, Nov. 2. Honor your vote, stay involved and hold those elected accountable. Randy Perry Batavia Township

Support Wilson

I will be voting for Archie Wilson for Clermont County commissioner on Nov. 2 It is a privilege to support a person whose interest is in the people he serves. He is an upstanding citizen and has been in business for more than 30 years with an understanding of what challenges the small business owner. He is a very hardworking man and a person of integrity with strong work ethics. He has a commitment to represent the people of Clermont County. Being endorsed by the Republican Party, Ohio Valley Lodge 112 Fraternal Order of Police, Cincinnati Right to Life PAC and the Citizens for Community Values Action PAC and Ohio Tea Party PAC make a huge statement about Archie Wilson over his opponent. It would be difficult to find a better candidate than Archie Wil-

Rather than adhering Columnist to the framers’ original intent, they strive to establish political correctness, not constitutional correctness. I pledge to do my very best to be constitutionally correct, not politically correct. A judge is not a legislator. Judges must work within the framework of the laws enacted by the legislative branch of our government. I cannot and will not substitute my personal view of any law simply because I do not like it or disagree with it. I am honored to have gained the trust, support and endorsements of the Clermont County Republican Party; the Fraternal Order of Police, Ohio Valley Lodge 112; State Senator Tom Niehaus; Rob Portman and Sheriff A.J. “Tim” Rodenberg. But the support of a mother whose son was murdered touches me the most. Gloria Condelles has written on my behalf, the following: “My son was murdered 25 years ago in Miami Township. Richard Ferenc prosecuted my son’s killer, resulting in his conviction and life sentence. He treated my family and me with compassion, dignity and respect. He has the character and integrity to serve as a judge of the common pleas court.” I sincerely ask for your vote Nov. 2. Ric Ferenc is a candidate for Clermont County Court of Common Pleas judge Nov. 2.



Vote for Archie

If I was the candidate, I would have quit by now. This campaigning stuff is tiring both physically and mentally, but that doesn’t stop my husband. It seems every time he gets kicked by his opponent another endorsement follows or another supporter calls. As his support has grown over the months, he has been more energized by the friendly people of this county. I am so proud of him for wanting to make a difference in this community. Please vote for my husband, Archie Wilson, on Nov. 2. He really cares. Sandy Wilson Batavia Township

Croswell is a decision maker

I want to encourage Clermont County residents to re-elect Scott Croswell for commissioner. For the past eight years, Scott has done a rare thing – he put his principles above partisan politics. We need more elected officials like Scott who are willing to make the difficult decisions when it comes to cutting the size of government and forcing our government to live within its means. It is because of the fiscally-conservative approach that has been taken by leaders like Scott that Clermont County does not have the same budget problems our neighbors in Hamilton County are experiencing. I hope people will join me in supporting Scott Croswell for reelection as our county commissioner. Mary Makley Wolff Miami Township


“I was most impressed by the doorto-door campaign of Judge Ken Zuk. He showed up at our house on Sunday afternoon looking like a friendly neighbor, with a stack of campaign flyers in his hand. I am always skeptical of politicians and their ‘pre-election promises,’ so when I opened the front door I was already on the defensive. But Judge Zuk was not full of any fancy talk. He politely introduced himself, calling me by name, handed me one of his flyers, told me he was running for judge and said simply, ‘I like my job and I would like to keep it.’ He was a real person, taking the time to visit voters one at a time and he did not waste my time with empty promises. He was gone in less than two minutes, but his personality prompted me to read his flyer, which I found quite impressive, and it now has me looking seriously at my choices for election day. Good, old-fashioned, small-town-like campaigning. ‘Way to go Judge Zuk!’” M.K.S. “I cannot find any ad that is not distorting the facts or truth. I understand advocacy. It is an art form.

Clermont Chamber endorses tax levies The Clermont Chamber of Commerce endorses two local issues that will appear on the Nov. 2 ballot. It is the purpose of the Clermont Chamber of Commerce to safeguard and strengthen the collective interests of the Clermont County business community, and in that regard, the chamber board of director’s endorse and co-sponsor the following levies. Issue 5: Clermont County Children’s Services Levy Clermont County Children’s Protective Services is called upon to investigate hundreds of allegations of child abuse or neglect each year. They are dedicated to helping those who cannot help themselves, the abused and neglected children of

Clermont County. Efforts are made to preserve families through counseling and support, but many of these cases result in moving the children to foster care homes, for the child’s protection. Clermont County Children’s Protective Services is requesting a renewal of the existing .8-mill levy in order to protect the most vulnerable citizens in our community: Abused and neglected children. • This levy will not raise your taxes. • All of the money goes directly for the care and treatment of abused/neglected children. • None of the proceeds pays for staff or any other administrative function. • The levy provides safe havens for abused and neg-

lected children in Clermont County. • These dollars enable Children’s Protective Services to bring more of federal and state tax dollars back to the children of Clermont County. • There are currently more than 300 children who are removed from abusive and neglectful homes. Issue 6: Mental Health Renewal Levy This .5-mill renewal levy will not raise taxes. What residents pay today, is what they would continue to pay if the levy is approved. State and federal dollars for Mental Health and Drug and Alcohol services continue to decrease, while demand and needs identified from our growing community are increasing. In

the past few years, some services have been reduced. Without continued local levy funds, Clermont County residents with mental health, alcohol or drug problems will have to wait even longer for those services or even be denied access to services and many prevention programs will have to be terminated. The majority of the board’s revenues fund services at three local agencies: LifePoint Solutions, serving adult mental health needs; Child Focus, serving children, adolescent and family mental health needs; and Clermont Recovery Center, providing alcohol and drug prevention and treatment services to adults and adolescents. The board also funds Phoenix Place, a consumer-operated service. All


three agencies treat county residents on an Matt Van ability-toSant pay sliding scale basis. Community In the four Press years since Guest the last levy Columnist passage, more than 25,000 individuals have benefited from these prevention and treatment services, funded in part by levy dollars. The chamber encourages a vote in favor of these levies and most of all, we strongly encourage that each resident express his or her opinions by voting Election Day. Matt Van Sant is the president of the Clermont Chamber of Commerce.

the positive reasons why I should vote for him/her. “… Ted Strickland and Rob Portman’s messages seem, for the most part, to focus on the strong points of the candidates themselves. “I think if more Americans would share my stance, rather than just blindly voting for a given political party’s candidates, we would most likely elect a group of decent folks to represent us, the people, instead of following a party agenda like lemmings jumping off a cliff! ‘Nuff said ...” M.M. “I have no favorites for either party. They all spend too much time on slamming opponents instead of addressing issues.” BN

ruption.” This latest flourish prompted one blogger to ask, could “irritable climate syndrome” be next? Holdren’s attempt to rebrand the issue, coming after embarrassing e-mails and emergence of data not conforming to the template, is brilliant. Any weather event, whether it be a snow storm during a global warming conference, a regional drought or a flooding desert, can be seen as a “disruption” attributable to greenhouse gasses. It is a perfect, bullet-proof rhetorical device that can blunt any “inconvenient truth” previously seen as naturally occurring weather events characteristic of El Niño and La Niña cycles. Holdren, a Harvard professor, co-authored a textbook 30 years ago advocating radical measures to control population growth, including forced abortions, adding sterilants to drinking water and creating an international police force to implement the policies. Although he disavowed these policies at his confirmation hearing, Holdren still believes in massive government interventions

in the economy, such as Cap and Trade, to “preserve” the environment. Cap and Trade, passed by the U.S. House of Representatives but stalled in the Senate, would establish a new trading system similar to a commodities market to buy and sell carbon credits. Each carbon producer would be given a carbon limit. Those coming under the limit could sell its credits to those who exceeded theirs. Wall Street companies, such as Goldman and Sachs, stand to make billions from handling the trades. Utilities, factories and farmers would be forced to buy the credits. Since 85 percent of our energy comes from fossil fuels, the cost of electric and the products made from it, will skyrocket. Ohio, since we are so dependent upon coal, will be especially hard hit. According to Heritage Foundation economists, Ohio would immediately lose 63,000 jobs upon implementation of Cap and Trade. Job losses are predicted to grow to 112,000 by 2035. Ohio’s gross state product would lose $17.96 billion, gasoline would climb by

Cap and Trade has lost support in Congress as more of its impacts have become known. Lack of Congressional support hasn’t deterred the Obama administration, however. It is planning to use the EPA to tax carbon dioxide emission as a pollutant without congressional action or public support. A Harvard University study predicted that a gallon of gasoline would rise to $7 if Obama’s plan goes forward. Shakespeare asked, “What is in a name?” To the Obama administration, “global climate disruption” is just another tactic to impose its imperious will.

Kamphaus, Henning & Hood named Corporate Pacesetter By Mary Dannemiller


Miami Township firefighter/paramedic Dan Berkebile cares for a young patient in Peru whose mother traveled three days by boat so her child could be treated. Berkebile spent several days there earlier this summer helping run a free medical clinic.

Firefighter/ paramedic travels to Peru

By Mary Dannemiller

While most people spent their summer vacations lounging by a beach or pool, Miami Township firefighter/paramedic Dan Berkebile was working in a free medical clinic in Peru. Berkebile spent time in Nauta, Peru and Iquitos, Peru, with Springdale Nazarene Church in late June. As a paramedic, he helped provide medical care to Peruvians who oftentimes had nowhere else to turn. “It was a lot of primary care because they don’t have access to doctors the way do,” he said. One case Berkebile said he’ll always remember involved a sick 10-monthold boy whose mother had traveled three days by boat so he could be treated. “They were turned away by the clinic in town because they didn’t have any money,” he said. “He was a sick little kid. He had been dehydrated for five days, but we were able to help him. It’s pretty exhilarating to know the skills you took there could potentially save a little boy’s life.” Berkebile and the other doctors and nurses he was with also handed out free multi-vitamins and parasite medication to anyone who came by their clinics. “The biggest thing we did was give everybody the parasite medication and the 30- to 60-day supply of multi-vitamins,” he said. “They pretty much all have parasites over there so by treating them, we’re really

helping.” Assistant Fire Chief Dan Mack also volunteered in another country this summer by helping South African fire departments respond to calls during the World Cup. Miami Township Trustee Karl Schultz said both men showed great courage and compassion. “They’re highly qualified and they put a lot of their heart and soul into it and you see that by their volunteer activities,” he said. “This was (Berkebile’s) time and his mission so God bless him. That’s just the kind of people we have in Miami Township. They’re reaching out to the rest of the world.” Berkebile also said he was touched by how grateful and patient the Peruvian people were. “Here in the suburbs, everybody gets bent out of shape when they have to wait, but these people would show up before we opened the clinic in the morning, take a number and sit there until 5 p.m. or 5:30 p.m. and just smile at you,” he said. “They never said a word.” Though the firefighter/ paramedic said he learned valuable medical lessons, he said most of his experiences taught him something deeper. “Anytime you’re using your skills, you’re sharpening them,” he said. “The biggest thing I learned is just to be incredibly grateful for what we have here. So many people talk about the health care system being broken and it has its issues, but it’s still the best in the world.”


Miami Township firefighter/paramedic Dan Berkebile spent time in Nauta, Peru and Iquitos, Peru, with Springdale Nazarene Church in late June.

To Stephen Hood, Kamphaus, Henning & Hood is a lot more than an accounting firm. It’s a way for Hood and the other partners and employees to give back to the Clermont County community. “We try to help businesses grow, help people grow their net worth and figure out ways to save them taxes wherever possible,” he said. It’s that mindset that helped the Milford accounting firm earn the 2009 Corporate Pacesetter Award from the Clermont Chamber of Commerce. Each year, the Corporate Pacesetter is given to a Clermont County organization that has demonstrated outstanding qualities of corporate citizenship and leadership, as well as a genuine concern for the welfare of Clermont County and its residents, according to a chamber press release. “I was very surprised and I think everyone else


The staff at Kamphaus, Henning & Hood are grateful for receiving the Corporate Pacesetter award from the Clermont County Chamber of Commerce. here was, too,” Hood said. “It’s a big honor for us to receive from the chamber. It’s a big deal for us to get it.” Hood said many of the firm’s employees, including the partners, are active in charitable organizations in Clermont County ranging from United Way to the League of Women Voters. “It’s a way to give back to the community and make contacts with lots of different people,” Hood said. “We want to help the community because they help us.” Doni Findlan, an admin-

istrator with the firm for 23 years, said Kamphaus, Henning & Hood employees take pride in their community outreach projects. “A good portion of us are involved in other things in the community and I think that’s very important,” she said. “We’re paying them back for the support we’ve had all these years.” Findlan also said she appreciated the recognition the Clermont Chamber of Commerce was giving the company. “We’re really thankful to the chamber,” she said.

“This is the best county I’ve ever lived in and it has a lot to do with the chamber. To be recognized as a pacesetter in this community is just golden.” The Clermont Chamber of Commerce Annual Pacesetter Awards Dinner is at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 4, at Holiday Inn and Suites Cincinnati Eastgate, 4501 Eastgate Blvd. Reservations for individuals and corporate tables may be made through Thursday, Oct. 28, at 5765000 or

SEM Haven celebrates 30 years By Kellie Geist

When you are at SEM Haven, it doesn’t feel like a nursing home. It just feels like home. And that’s exactly what the center’s staff is hoping for. “We try to be more personal and less medical about things,” said Administrator Barb Wolf. “We don’t have nurses stations and medical carts and our staff is always with the residents.” SEM Haven Health & Residential Care Center is part of the SEM Retirement Communities, which includes SEM Manor, Villa, Terrace, Laurels and Haven. However, SEM Haven, which is more of a nursing home than the other assisted living buildings, has a separate operation and board of directors. SEM Haven has undergone three major construction projects including when it doubled in size in 2007. This change made it easier for SEM Haven to complete the switch from having a more traditional nursing home operation to a resident-centered operation. With this new Eden Alternative philosophy, which SEM Haven started working on in 2000, residents are put into households (with about 20 people) complete with more private rooms, living rooms, kitchens, dining rooms and front doors. Residents work with the same people each day and are involved in the household decision-making. “We believe that no matter how frail you are or what your mental status is, you can make a difference. You can have a say,” Wolf said. “That gives meaning to life.” Mary Banks, who has lived at SEM Haven for nine years, said the 2007


SEM Haven residents Edna Tebbe, left, and Mel Chifari, right, danced the day away to Cincinnati Sinatra Matt Snow’s music during the SEM Haven anniversary celebration Sunday, Sept. 26.

30th anniversary


The entrance to SEM Haven, which was added in 1995, is on Cleveland Avenue in South Milford. changes made a huge difference. “We have so much privacy and it’s more homelike in the households,” Banks said. “If someone is (looking for a nursing home) I would say look here and see what you can see. That will make up your mind.” Nurse Sheron Jones agrees that SEM Haven is just a special place. “When you walk in the door, you just feel comforted. You want to be here and I think that’s how the staff feels,” she said. “This really is a family and we really

care about the residents.” And Jones, who has been at SEM Haven for 29 years, isn’t the only long-time staff member. The center’s director of nursing, Helen Canfield, has been at SEM Haven for all 30 years, social worker Caroline Craig has been a staff member for 22 years, Wolf has been with SEM Haven for 11 years and the average nurse has been on staff for eight years. All of the staff members also are cross-trained. While a majority of the nursing home is for people who need assistance with

SEM Haven’s residents, staff and friends celebrated the center’s 30th anniversary Sunday, Sept. 26. U.S. Rep. Jean Schmidt, Milford Mayor Ralph Vilardo Jr., Milford council member Charlene Hinners and Clermont County Commissioner Ed Humphrey attended. Entertainment was provided by Cincinnati Sinatra Matt Snow. SEM Haven is an independent non-profit ministry for older adults. The center is governed by a volunteer board of directors. SEM Haven opened its doors in 1980 with 100 beds and has since undergone three major construction projects. SEM Haven Health & Residential Care Center is at 225 Cleveland Avenue in South Milford and can be reached at 248-1270 or visit the website at every day tasks, there is a household available for people with severe Alzheimer’s or other memory-related conditions, a short-term rehabilitation household, and an assisted-living household.

What talents lie behind the masks we wear? out of sight in the shadow part of our personality as best we can. Our parents and teachers didn’t like them. Nor are we proud of them. Trouble comes when we deny they’re there. But we also have some very positive talents we may keep hidden. Why do we hide them? Because we’re afraid we might be called upon to use them, or in using them risk embarrassment, and sometimes we just don’t want to expend the energy to carry them out. Some of us keep out wonderful traits covered by our persona. I think of very ordinary looking Susan Boyle blowing the judges and the public away when she sang on “Britain’s Got Talent.” Civilized society, however, depends on the use of personas. We expect interactions between people to be carried out through their personal or professional persona. It helps us know who we’re dealing with. The little boy at the front door was not really a lion, and the little girl not really a princess. To wear a costume and mask to a party feels freeing because it reminds us and others that there is a lot more to us than the familiar persona we have. It’s said we humans die having used only about 20 percent of our potential. Actors and actresses must

It is time adjust our masks and come to know ourselves better, who we are, and bring out some of the golden and talented parts of our personality. be partially drawn to their careers by the opportunity to explore other aspects of their person and receive acclaim for it. It’s an interesting observation that we Christians have created a persona/ mask for Jesus Christ. He is expected to wear a less human mask than ours, though he became one of us. At the wedding feast in Cana some actually find it difficult to think of him as drinking real wine, laughing

out loud, joining in a dance, or being humorous. The mask we’ve assigned him is always somber, serious, frowning in disapproval, or telling someone to shape up. He can’t be too human, we conclude. Especially for adults, the second half of life is like the day after Halloween. It is time adjust our masks and come to know ourselves better, who we are, and bring out some of the golden and talented

parts of our personality. After our children are raised our truest and best selves need to be coaxed forth. The dark parts of our personality must be acknowledged, contained and moderated. But talent wants out. If we’ve always dreamed of painting, singing, coaching, dancing, composing poetry or music, teaching or caring for others in their need, now’s the time. As poet Mary Oliver

writes: “When it’s over, if I have made of my like something particular, and real, I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened, or full of argument. I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@ or P.O.

It was Halloween. A woman opened her door and said to the little boy costumed as a lion, “My, you look so fierce!” He growled a n d clawed the air with Father Lou his left Guntzelman paw. T h e Perspectives next doorbell ringer was a little girl dressed as a princess. The woman told her “You’re so pretty, you look like Princess Diana used to look.” When we put on a mask or costume, whether we’re a child or adult, something inside us is unleashed. It’s tantalizing to imagine ourselves in another role. In a way, we already own a mask we wear daily over our real self’s face. It serves as a protection and helps us socially. Psychologically it’s called our persona. Without a persona/mask we feel too vulnerable, too easily known, and too easily rejected. There are parts of us that, quite understandingly, others would not like if they saw – perhaps unbridled anger, selfishness, cruelty, a dysfunctional sexual appetite, various addictions or laziness. These aspects are kept

I tasted my first batch of this years ago when friend Bert brought some over. I was so impressed that this crunchy treat could be made at home. “It’s a Beverly Nye recipe,” Bert told me. (Lots of you remember Bev – our

14 cups popped corn 3 cups mixed salted or unsalted nuts 2 sticks butter 2 cups dark brown sugar 1 ⁄2 cup light corn syrup 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon vanilla 1 ⁄2 teaspoon baking soda Optional but good: 2 cups candy corn and/or black and orange M&Ms

To avoid sticking, use vegetable spray to coat both inside of large bowl, cookie sheets and spoons that you will use. Put popcorn and nuts in bowl. Set aside. Over medium heat, bring to a boil everything but the soda. Boil five minutes. Add baking soda and stir. Pour over popcorn mixture, stirring well to coat. Pour onto two or three sprayed cookie sheets. Bake one hour, stirring every 15 minutes to distribute coating.

513.763.3080 ~ 800.989.8900

4 green apples 1 cup of chunky peanut butter 1 ⁄2 cup of chopped peanuts (optional) 1 ⁄2 cup of Rice Krispies 1 ⁄4 cup of raisins

Cut the apples into quarters and remove the core, leaving it hollow for the filling. Mix the peanut butter, chopped peanuts, cereal and raisins. Spoon them into the apple hollows. Looks like bugs, and kids just love it.

Wormy chili in pumpkin

To make pumpkin shell: hollow out pumpkin to about 1 ⁄2-inch thickness (this is so shell won’t collapse) and save seeds for roasting. Put shell and top on sprayed cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees about 20 minutes or just until tender. Don’t overbake or shell will be to weak to hold chili. Fill with favorite chili. Before serving, spoon spaghetti strands on top and let hang over for “worms.” Shell can be made several days in advance and rewarmed before filling.

Roasted pumpkin seeds

Clean and dry seeds. Toss with olive oil and any seasoning you like: sea salt, Southwestern spice, whatever. Bake at 350 degrees until toasted, about 20 minutes.


Pumpkins can provide a new, and spooky, way to display Cincinnati-style chili.

Praline crunch snack mix

Lee Ochs, director of Jungle Jim’s cooking school, shared this recipe when I was prepping for a class. It was absolutely addictive. The staff kept coming back for “just a little more.” Here’s my adaptation. 16 oz. box oatmeal squares cereal 2 cups pecans, lightly toasted and coarsely chopped (or your favorite nuts) 1 ⁄2 cup dark or light brown sugar, firmly packed 1 ⁄2 cup light corn syrup 1 ⁄2 stick (4 tablespoons) butter 1 tablespoon vanilla 1 ⁄2 teaspoon each: baking soda and salt 2 teaspoons cinnamon Preheat oven to 250. Spray a cookie sheet with sides or a 9-by-13 pan. Combine cereal and nuts in large sprayed bowl and set aside.

Either on the stove or in microwave, combine sugar, syrup and butter. Bring to a boil and stir in vanilla, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Pour over cereal mixture and stir to coat. Pour onto cookie sheet and bake 45 minutes to one hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool completely and break into pieces. Store at room temperature. Makes eight cups.

Tips from Rita

Keep those jack-olanterns from shriveling: Keep your carved creation looking unpuckered by mixing 2 tablespoons vinegar and a teaspoon of lemon juice into 3 cups of water. Brush over carved areas.

Fishin’ is good for stocking freezer Howdy folks, Last week we had the pleasure of our granddaughter, grandson-in-law and the beautiful great granddaughter here for the noon meal. This baby is sure beautiful. Now I imagine you think your grandchildren are very special, like Brooklyn Marie. Now don’t get mad at us for being the typical grandparents. The menu was homemade potato soup, ham sandwiches and homemade fresh still warm, applesauce. Oh, we had apple cider to drink. The kids love the soup and applesauce. We went fishing a couple weeks ago and cleaned 10 nice crappie. We are stocking the freezer up for winter. The crappie have to be 9 inches long before they can be kept. The trees around the lake are sure beautiful. We took a couple from our church on a tour of the lake. The water is so clean. Last Friday evening the homecoming parade was held. It was a big one and the weather was perfect. Then after the parade the king and queen were crowned at half-time at the football game. This is always a great event. The football players sure do their best when playing whether they win or loose. We want to thank Ken for furnishing his tractor and trailer. Also Frank for furnishing the straw for the Lions Club members to sit on during the parade. Tuesday, Oct. 12, Ruth Ann and I went fishing again. We had 21 big crappie and 13 bluegills. We probably put 25 crappie back that were under the 9 inches. The biggest was 11 inches long. The weather is sure great. I wonder how long this beautiful weather will last. I have been watering some trees we set out last year.

Adopt-a-Senior needs your help At Clermont Senior Services, we are already working on our Adopt-a-Senior holiday project. Each year we receive calls from individuals and organizations that want to help the elderly during the holidays by providing them with a gift or two. Last year the economic forecast looked pretty bleak. Yet, the response was amazing. It seems that a lot of people really have a heart for seniors at Christmas. This year, we have already heard from nearly 40 of last year’s volunteers who want to shop again this year. We match groups or individuals with specific requests from seniors who we know could use a little help. Our case managers know our seniors pretty well and usually suggest a couple of practical items as well as a small luxury or two, such as a box of candy or crossword puzzle books. For some of our customers, these few gifts are the only gifts they receive. Some of them are overwhelmed by the generosity of our volunteers. Some laugh and some cry, but they all have big smiles on their faces, and a warm spot in their hearts from knowing that someone cared. There is also a need for personal care items such as house slippers, body lotion, razors and shaving cream. Towels and sheets are needed, too. Sometimes we run across a customer who has only one bath towel, and their sheets may be torn and stained. Bed

Project creates message about domestic violence Calls for assistance now number 800 a month, as counselors for the YWCA domestic violence hotline that serves Clermont, Adams and Brown counties, struggle to find shelter and resources for those who need to leave their homes, often with children in tow. “Last year at this time, we were getting 700 calls a month, so you can see how domestic violence reporting is increasing,” said local YWCA Shelter Manager Kirstin Eismin. Members of the community are invited to design a T-shirt with a message about domestic violence between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 19, at UC Clermont, 4200 Clermont College Drive in Batavia. “The messages are deeply personal,” said Eismin. “As part of the Clothesline Project, we will hang these T-shirts on a line to create a powerful message about domestic violence and its impact on individuals, families and communities,” she said. Eismin encourages victims of domestic violence to call the 24-hour hotline if they need assistance; 513753-7281. A domestic violence vigil will be held at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 21, on the steps of the Clermont County Courthouse, 270 E. Main St. in Batavia. “We invite those who have been a victim of domestic violence, and those who have lost a loved one to abuse to come out and join us for special music and speakers,” said Eismin. For more information about domestic violence or events planned to create awareness about domestic violence, call the YWCA at 732-0450.
