BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Milford looks to avoid redistricting

By Keith BieryGolick

kbierygolick@communitypress.com

MILFORD — Even with two new elementary buildings on the way district officials are trying to avoid redistricting their schools. “Unless some big change occurs we’d rather not move people around,” said Bob Farrell, Milford superintendent. The district predicts enrollment at Boyd E. Smith Elementary will drop, which means significant changes can be avoided. That also means some of the school’s problems might not be addressed when a new building is built. Earlier this year the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission gave the district about $25 million to construct two new ele-

mentary buildings. The funds can only be used for construction and not for operations or any other generalfund expenditures. The Boyd E. Smith school will remain open while another building is constructed on its 33acre property on 1052 Jer-Les Drive. At a recent community forum, residents expressed concerns about traffic and classroom size.

“It’s not fun getting in and out of here,” one resident said. Traffic studies are typically performed when a new building is constructed, said Jeff Johnson, the district’s operations manager. “I hesitate to think (the school’s setup) would change dramatically,” he said, noting district enrollment predictions. Johnson said there’s been talk of using neighborhood easements, but that hasn’t been studied. “The road itself would be on the district’s dollar,” he said. Another resident told officials she and other staff were “tired of being tight in ... classrooms.” The new building will be 2,000 square feet smaller than the current elementary.

“The state is not going to overbuild,” Johnson said. “We certainly think efficient use of space will ... be better (in the new building).” Farrell admitted Boyd does have some odd-sized rooms, which can be improved in the new building. “They all have to be a minimum square footage,” he said. “I don’t disagree that managing space will be a big challenge.” Another concern from residents was the noise created by construction. “There will be some noise, but it’s not drastic. On the high school we were on the other side of the wall — literally,” Johnson said. “It’s not quite that close of quarters we anticipate for this

project.” Board member George Lucas told residents the worst noise is associated with excavating equipment such as backhoes and cement trucks. “Those (operations) tend to happen when the weather is fairly good. So most heavy noise issues will happen during those warmer months,” he said. Farrell said noise was managed “pretty well” when the high school was built. “I’m not saying there won’t be any noise,” he said. “(But) we call the shots.” Construction on the new elementary buildings is not expected to begin until next summer. Both buildings will be built at the same time. Johnson estimated they would open in 2016.

‘Hole Lotta Hotta’ wins BBQ contest By Jeanne Houck jhouck@communitypress.com

MILFORD — It took four years of research and a whole lot of jalapeno peppers, but a city businessman has won an international award for his Southweststyle barbecue sauce. Greg “G Willie” Williams, owner of G Willie BBQ in Milford, sees no need for false modesty. “We make and sell the best barbecue sauce in the country,” exulted Williams after his sauce, “Hole Lotta Hotta,” took first place in the 2014 Scovie Awards’ American-style, hot barbecue-sauce division. G Willie BBQ also sells “Sweeeet Momma” sauce. “I had to make a sweet sauce for my wife, who can’t bear jalapeno peppers,” said Williams, an information technology specialist for KDM POP Solutions Group, an industrial printing company in Evendale. Williams said his family has always loved outdoor cooking. “Dad was a grill freak and Mom was an accomplished gourmet cook,” Williams said. “Our love of gourmet foods led all of my siblings at one point or another into various roles in the food industry. “I always had a thing for grilling, but got bit by the grilling bug hard in the 1990s,” Williams said. “I started experimenting with smoked meats and southern barbecue in 1996.” Williams, who lives in Milford with his wife and business partner, Dianne, opened G Willie BBQ in 2010. So what is he willing to reveal about his sauces? Just this: “Both of our sauces are traditional recipes that we came up with through trial and error,” Williams said.

Greg “G Willie” Williams, owner of G Willie BBQ in Milford, won an international award for his “Hole Lotta Hotta” barbecue. Here he is with his wife, Dianne, and their children, Stephen (left) and Alexander. PROVIDED

“We tried using some more exotic ingredients, like bourbon at first, but due to cost and difficulties in production, we found that sticking to traditional ingredients was the best. “Obviously, we were correct,” Williams said. G Willie BBQ has no storefront in Milford; nor does it operate a restaurant. The business sells to retailers from a warehouse in Anderson Township. Williams plans to begin working soon

with a distributor to help get Hole Lotta Hotta and Sweeeet Momma into more stores. He’s already selling barbecue sauces to businesses on the east side of the region, including Jungle Jim’s International Market in Eastgate and Fairfield, Lehr’s Market in Milford, Newtown Farm Market and Shaw Farms Produce in Miami Township. G Willie BBQ customers soon will have more flavors from which to choose.

A mustard barbecue sauce and a seafood barbecue sauce are in the works. Emily DeWitt-Cisneros is a producer of the annual Scovie Awards, which have been given out for the past 18 years at a fiery-foods competition sponsored by a group based in Albuquerque, N.M. She said in a press release that there were nearly 865 entries in the contest this year from businesses in the United States, Australia, Austria, Canada, Ecuador, St. Lucia and the United Kingdom. G Willie BBQ’s award comes as no surprise to the American Cornhole Organization, also based in Milford, which claims Hole Lotta Hotta as its official barbecue sauce. Williams long has supported the American Cornhole Organization, serving as emcee at national cornhole contests. So he decided to do something nice for the organization. “Our tribute to the game is in the name: ‘Hole’ Lotta Hotta,” Williams said. For more about your community, visit www.Cincinnati.com/Milford.

Miami Twp. now accepting credit cards By Keith BieryGolick kbierygolick@communitypress.com

MIAMI TWP. — For Miami Township residents, registering for programs and renting the township’s facilities just got a whole lot easier. That’s because residents now can use their credit card to pay. “Residents have wanted it for a long time,” said Trustee Mary Makley Wolff. And demand hasn’t slowed. “There’s not a week goes by that people don’t ask about it,” said Krystin Thibodeau, recreation director. “It’s going to be so much more convenient for residents.” The credit card system went live Oct. 21 and has gone “really smoothly” so far, Thibodeau said. Township officials will

Fronk

Wolff

have time to work out any problems with the system before the summer signup rush hits in the spring. Officials looked in their database of users, which contained about 4,000 emails, and sent everyone an email with a new password and login for the system. “New users will have to go through us to get passwords and logins, but it’s not too hard to keep up with the new people,” Thibodeau said. The department took its first payment by credit card the second day the system went live. “People are enjoying

the convenience of it,” Thibodeau said. “We can see the times of transactions and we’re seeing people use it late at night and very early in the morning so its obviously a

convenience for them to be able to do it from their homes.” But convenience generally comes with a price. In this case, the township is covering the 2 per-

cent fee charged every time someone pays with a card. Program and facility fees will rise next year to cover that charge. “It will be very minute increases,” Thibodeau said. “We’re going to analyze it and put in some new pricing in 2014.” Officials are looking into expanding creditcard use to other departments in the future, but it’s just the recreation department for now. “We are primarily the people that take in the most money. I think we’re looking at the zoning department — for resident to be able to pay a zoning fee, a permit fee — that’s a possibility,” Thibodeau said.

Rental changes

“As the township moves toward accepting

payments from credit cards, the recreation department saw it as a good time to make changes to the rental agreements (for facilities),” said Larry Fronk, township administrator. “Many of these forms have not changed since 2006.” Streamlining is how Thibodeau described it. Non-resident fees for renting facilities, as well as setup and tear-down fees, were eliminated. Non-resident fees for programs will still be enforced. “We set it up like six years ago and we didn’t know what to expect. We put a lot of stuff in there just to cover everything,” Thibodeau said. “We had things in there that weren’t being utilized. So we looked at what people were using and streamlined it to fit that.”

Event to feature ‘King of Bootleggers’ By Jeanne Houck jhouck@communitypress.com

You may know that George Remus was known as the “King of Bootleggers” while living in Cincinnati. But did you know Remus first gained acclaim as a criminal defense attorney in Chicago? And that he once tried unsuccessfully to win an acquittal for a client accused of murdering his wife on the grounds of temporary insanity – the

very defense Remus would later use successfully after he finished a two-year prison term for Prohibition violations and shot his wife in Cincinnati? Last year, the Indian Hill Historical Society presented a program about Remus’ bootlegging days. The historical society figures it is time now to tell the rest of the story: his sensational trial. The Indian Hill Historical Society will pre-

sent “Prohibition II: George Remus, the Trial of the Century” at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 17, at The Little Red Schoolhouse at 8100 Given Road in Indian Hill. The presentation by Forest Park historian Mark Plageman is part of the historical society’s 40th anniversary season – and an indication of the group’s collective mindset, said Barbara Hauck, president of the Indian Hill Historical Society’s board of trustees.

She said the historical society started out as a group that supported a museum. “Now we’re really calling ourselves a historical society rather than an historical museum association because we are more about doing programs then doing a museum where people come and look at exhibits,” Hauck said. Visit www.indianhill.org for information about upcoming events.

MILFORD — Orange barrels and yellow cranes. They signal roadwork that produces frustration in motorists in a rush to get where they’re going and worries in business people who fear customers won’t easily find their way to their storefronts. But to the people doing the work just feet away from passing cars and trucks the roadwork represents the possibility of injury – or worse. This was brought home Sept. 27 when a motorist struck two workers pav-

County shares radio system with state By Leah Fightmaster lfightmaster@communitypress.com

In an effort to save some money in operating costs, Clermont County is upgrading its radio system for first responders and sharing with the state. About 13 years ago, Clermont County created a countywide radio system for first responders, which include fire, police, EMS and some of the Engineer’s Office, with Motorola as the supplier. At the same time, the state was starting its own similar system, but coun-

ty Administrator Stephen Rabolt said Clermont County wasn’t confident in the reliability of it, and created its own. However, the state upgraded its Multi-Agency Radio Communications System, called MARCS, and Rabolt said the county is much more confident sharing services with it. While it’s not an entire change to the state’s radio system because the county is going to maintain its own, working with Ohio saves money for the county, he added. Some of those savings

will come from sharing a main switch that controls all the communications on the radio system, which Rabolt said is an expensive piece of equipment that the county doesn’t have to buy now. A portion of what the county could have saved, however, was eaten up by moving towers. One of Clermont County’s radio towers in Miami Township failed an inspection, and because the county leases them, the owner was able to decline making improvements to handle the system’s upgrade.

A new tower is being leased in Goshen Township instead, Rabolt said. A new tower was also added in Campbell County, Ky., so radio frequencies would make it to the river valleys, an issue Rabolt said the county has had in the past. Overall, the county’s radio system and shared services with the state will cost under $10 million, which Rabolt said was the original price when the county put it through the bidding process. The exact cost is still being worked out.

4 CCDS seniors are semifinalists

Four members of the Cincinnati Country Day Class of 2014 have been named National Merit Semifinalists in the 59th Annual National Merit Scholarship Program. They are Julian Braxton of Blue Ash, Austin Harden of Mason, Brian McSwiggen of Blue Ash and Grant Swinton of Miami Township. They now have the opportunity to compete for 8,000 National Merit Scholarships, worth about $35 million, to be offered next spring. “These wonderful students are deeply committed to academic success and to contributing to the community outside of the classroom,” said Head of

McCormick students Olivia Gray and Ellen Long McCormick pointing to the monarch caterpillar. THANKS TO MARY PAT HARRIS

Save the monarch Monarch butterfly populations have been on the decline for many years due to habitat loss. Monarchs feed on the milkweed plant. McCormick Elementary bought milkweed seeds eight years ago to help the butterflies. The school gardens now attract butterflies and nectar-loving insects. Each year students in the Dragonfly Science Club spread the seeds in the field and along the woods in hopes that more butterflies will find their favorite food and be able to make the migration to Mexico.

Ursuline announces National Honor Society inductees

One-hundred fifty eight Ursuline Academy students have earned membership in the National Honor Society, and were inducted in a ceremony at Ursuline’s Besl Theater. Students with at least a 3.5 GPA are invited to apply, and then earn membership after a selection committee reviews their applications. Induction is based on the four pillars of the National Honor Society: scholarship, service, leadership, and character. During the ceremony, Ursuline President Sharon Redmond reminded the inductees of the the expectations placed upon them as members of this society. “As you know, selection into National Honor Society is a privilege, not a right, and it is a privilege that comes with responsibility,” Redmond said. “As you recite the pledge tonight and be-

come members of the Ursuline Academy chapter of the National Honor Society, I ask that you take seriously your promise to your school, your family, and yourselves, to use your gifts of wisdom, character, and leadership, to serve and empower others.” The inductees: Seniors: Olivia Desch, Hyde Park; Caroline Kirk, Indian Hill; Maggie McGraw, Indian Hill; Sarah Neltner, Montgomery; Grace Robinson, Lebanon; Meredith Schmitt, Indian Hill; Marisa Seremet, Kenwood; Clare Suess, Hyde Park; Diana Tamborski, Miami Township/Loveland; Anna Varley, Anderson Township.

Milford schools sponsor club lacrosse program By Mark D. Motz

mmotz@communitypress.com

MILFORD — Arranged marriages live. Milford High School and the Milford Lacrosse Club forged a partnership to help foster the sport. The two entities signed a one-year agreement designating lacrosse as a school-sponsored club sport. “We’re excited to have those kids come into the fold,” said Mark Trout, Milford athletic director. “It’s just not feasible financially at this time to start up four new teams – you have boys and girls varsity and JV – so this is a way to do that without adding costs. “The lacrosse kids will have

an opportunity to win a letter now, to be officially part of the athletic program. They’ll be held to the same eligibility standards as our other sports. They’re going to continue to do what they’ve done, just with some official help from the school now.” Milford Lacrosse Club founder and president Brian Cross said it should be a win-win proposition. “We’ve been around for 10 years and it was time to bring it in,” he said. “We’ve been a part of the school, part of the community. It makes sense for the kids and the school and the community for us to be working together. “We’ll have a little more

pride. I think the student body realizes this will be a good opportunity for them to have some more recognition in the school, earning a letter, being on the announcements. We felt part of (the school community) before, but this really solidifies it for us.” The partnership happened in large part because of changes by the state lacrosse coaches’ association. “The (lacrosse) club needed to be school sponsored so they could play in the state tournament,” Trout said. “They’re doing away with the club designation and the kids wouldn’t have had an opportunity to compete.” Cross added, “That’s proba-

MILFORD — Milestone moments often happen without anyone knowing they are milestones until later. Such was the case for the Milford High School girls water polo team. Unbeknownst to the players, the Eagles recorded the 300th win in the 24-year history of the program Oct. 1. “The girls didn’t know they had done it until after,” said head coach Sarah Kleinfelter. “I didn’t want to tell them ahead of time and make them nervous or try to do too much.” As it happened, the 300th was a solid 10-1 victory over Princeton where nerves probably would not have made a difference. Still, better safe than sorry. The Milford girls finished the season with a 20-16-1 record, ending the season in the regional tournament.

bly the largest thing for us, to get us in the state tournament. Without the partnership, we don’t have a chance to play in it.” The Milford Exempted Village School District board approved the partnership at its Sept. 19 meeting. “It’s a one-year agreement,” Trout said. “The season runs through May. I imagine we’ll take a look at the end of the season in June or July, see how it worked and go back to the board before next school year.” Lacrosse conditioning begins in December and practices begin at the end of February in preparation for a season that runs through May.

“It was a good year,” Kleinfelter said. “The girls worked hard. They made a lot of progress.” They finally knocked off a strong Mason team in its own pool after the Comets had handed Milford earlier losses by eight, one and six goals. “They’d beaten us three times and two of them weren’t very close,” Kleinfelter said. “We beat them 11-10. We got confidence as the game went on; we were thinking maybe we really can do this. It was a great feeling. Mason was

speechless.” Goalie Sage Foot played a key role, keeping Milford in many contests with her defense. On the other end of the pool, Lindsey Bugajski turned her lob shot into a serious scoring threat. “When she was on, goalies couldn’t stop her,” Kleinfelter said. Captain Carolyn Storch assumed a leadership role. “She really took over,” Kleinfelter said. “She took ownership and was a great example.” On the boys side, it was a little different as the team went 5-28. The Eagles graduated seven seniors from the 2012 squad and had only three seniors - Jack Noll, Alex Hahn and Josh Fritz returning to start the year. They had to lead a crop of 13 underclassmen, including nine firstyear water polo players. “It was a lot of just teaching the skills and the game to the boys,” Kleinfelter said. “The boys and girls practice separately, but even with the boys, my assistants and I would maybe have the seniors on one end working and just trying to teach on the other and then trying to bring that together.” A few of the youngsters distinguished themselves. Sophomore Max Woodson earned alltournament honors in the re-

WILMINGTON — Faulkner’s fictional dark, stormy night became reality for McNicholas High School on Halloween 2013. The Rockets lost 29-27, 25-18, 22-25, 25-22 against Chillicothe Unioto in the Division II volleyball regional semifinals at Wilmington High School. The Rockets finished the season 17-9 and won the GGCL Coed Central title. Which exceeded expectations after McNick graduated 10 players from a regional finalist team in 2012. “I don’t think anyone actually thought we’d be back here (in the regional tournament) this year,” said senior outside hitter

this year than last because we weren’t supposed to do it.” Wuerfel had an additional reason to enjoy the season, sharing the court with sophomore sibling Hannah Wuerfel, an outside hitter and defensive specialist. “It’s been great,” Sarah said. “We don’t really think of ourselves as sis-

ters on the court. We’re just teammates. We were close, but this (experience of playing together) made us best friends. “It will just be us in the car going home and I know we’re going to talk a lot about it.” McNick head coach Denny Murphy said while he would prefer winning, he has no regrets about the 2013 campaign. “This year’s team, everything we did in the gym, they brought out on the floor,” Murphy said. “In other years, we may have had some more talent and gotten by on that. We graduated 10 players from last year and we just won 17 games. “We won our league, we won a district title and we made a good showing in the regional tournament. There’s nothing to be sad about. It’s been a great season. “When we got to the tournament, we didn’t know what to expect. We lost our last three games of the regular season and we didn’t really have any idea how we’d do, but then we got in a groove and started beating people again.” Wuerfel, a Milford resident, plans to study ac-

counting at either Miami or Ohio University, but plans to be back to see her sister play next season. “We’ll talk about what my expectations are,” she said. “They should be good again next year and hopefully they’ll work hard again.” Murphy said the Unioto loss will be a valuable lesson for returning players like Hannah Wuerfel. Not only will they know and want to avoid - the sting of defeat, they will know how much effort went into making it as far as they did. “The best thing they’re going to take out of this is they played really hard,” Murphy said. “There was no quit. When we were down 2-0, they played hard in the third game and won. When they had 23 points in the fourth and it looked like we were finished, they kept fighting and made it close.”

very intelligent and cautious people have fallen for this scheme, it is a stark reality. Moreover, the reality is Cindy that those who Gramke COMMUNITY PRESS fall prey have, individually, GUEST COLUMNIST lost anywhere from $20,000 to much greater amounts. Money they worked hard for when they were in the workforce. Money they did not spend and so carefully saved so that they would be able to get by in their “golden years.” Gone. But, it has hit very close to home with someone I know very well. This person is not the person you would ever dream would fall for such a scam. She is very intelligent and in daily communication with and close to her children. How do they do it? Well,

she was told that all she had to do was pay the taxes on the winnings, and that had to be paid up-front, she would not be “out” anything. They would send her a check for the taxes ($22,000!) and she was to deposit it into her bank account. There would be a day that it would be in the bank and she should call and make sure that the amount was credited to her account, proving legitimacy. She followed the instructions and withdrew three separate increments of “Cash.” Yes, cash. She was instructed to put the first $3,500 cas h in a magazine and Federal Express it to Canada, where the sweepstakes headquarters is located. The next day, she was instructed to send $8,500 cash and the final $10,000 payment the third day, again the caller sharing that this further proved its legitimacy. However, for the check to

be returned to the bank from Canada, it takes longer than the four days. Immediately after all three payments are shipped the bank informs the elderly customer that the check bounced, and since she’s withdrawn the cash her account is overdrawn. In future columns, I plan to address more of these horrifying crimes against the elderly. For right now, share this with your parents, with your loved ones and anyone else you can reach. They did not win the lottery!!! And, sending cash is never the way a legitimate operation works!!!! Cindy Gramke is the Executive Director/CEO of Clermont Senior Services.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Should schools have mandatory drug tests for students? Why or why not?

“Employers, the military and professional sports teams have mandatory drug tests, why not schools? Schools are supposed to train you for what is coming later in life. Get used to it. Sooner or later, you will face one of these invasions of your privacy.” F.S.D.

“I would love to say yes, but I would also say there are too many laws and groups that would oppose. “I’m glad to see that several private, not public tax-dollar schools, have enough guts to take on checking for drugs. “I again will say as I always say, as long as we have attorneys and government sticking their noses into everything we will have prolonged problems. “If it ever comes to mandatory drug testing it should not only be restricted to students,

NEXT QUESTION State Sen. Bill Seitz has introduced legislation which would redefine the standards for third parties to appear on Ohio’s ballot, including a minimum requirement of 56,000 signatures to get on the ballot and receiving at least 3 percent of the vote in a presidential election to stay on the ballot.

but also to teachers and administration, and be made aware to the public, as we are taxpayers and they work for us. D.J.

“During my working career it always bugged me that the rules I had to enforce and/or obey were almost always due to

the 5 percent. Somewhere I was told that about 5 percent of the people cause 90 percent of our problems. “What will mandatory drug testing correct? Who will pay for it? How much will the testing disrupt our schools achieving their primary mission? Mandatory drug testing goes too far.” R.V.

“Absolutely not. A school is NOT a prison. “If a student is abusing drugs and his or her performance at school suffers because of it then it will result in the normal school related consequences – low grades, discipline for negative behavior, etc. That is all the feedback anyone should need to become aware a student is in trouble of some sort. “It is not the school’s job to treat well-behaved, conscientious, average students as if they are criminals.” E.M.S.

“No on mandatory drug tests, for a number of reasons. Primarily because is gives students the message that ‘We don’t trust you’ and is an ugly invasion of privacy for students who do not use drugs. “It also seems to be a search without probable cause. It will identify a relative small percentage of students at a great cost. “And what do the schools do with the information? If a student fails the drug test does it lead to automatic suspension, mandatory drug education classes, or a permanent record? “Way too many negatives and potential problems with this plan.” J.R.B.

“For athletes ... yes ... general student population ... NO! “Imagine the cost for this with so many schools are financially strapped anyway, who is going to foot the bill?” O.H.R.

Truth about invasive stinky bugs

When I listen to the news, whether on television or radio, lately I hear the topic of conversation being about these invasive stinky bugs. Reporters are giving suggestions on how to remove or deter these stink bugs or even finding a new delicacy by frying them in garlic. The brown marmorated stink bug was found in Pennsylvania in December 2007. The brown marmorated stink bug is native to Japan, Korea and China, so it ventured here via a shipment, as most of our invasive pests do. The brown marmorated stink bug causes no harm to human or animal but can be stinky when crushed. These bugs are a nuisance to homeowners, but can be detrimental to our fruit, vegetable and grain crops. Brown marmorated stink bug like to feed on peach,

They had ruined the patch of corn and the farmers market family growers did not want the bugs to spread any other crops. According to Penn State Entomologists report, “chemical control of (brown marmorated stink bug) can be challenging. Adults are harder to kill than nymphs, but both life stages present challenges because, unless they are hit directly with the spray, bugs will only be exposed to insecticides via their feet and feeding stylet, their narrow straw-like beak.” Some pyrethroid pesticides work on this insect, but labeled crops and restricted use come with product usage.

Community involvement sought for new school

Milford Exempted Village Schools will be making a site selection for the Charles A. Seipelt Elementary School (K-6). The current 9 acre site for Seipelt at 5684 Cromley Road can accommodate both current and nationally declining student enrollment projections. Some time ago, the Milford Board of Education (BOE) made a financial commitment on Ohio 131 acreage and the BOE's efforts are underway to assess this location's feasibility vs. construction of a new school at the current Seipelt site. The alternate Ohio 131 location would nestle additional traffic less than a half mile within the Milford Junior/High School traffic patterns. Approximately 100 individuals assembled at the first forum in the Seipelt cafeteria on Oct. 23. Comprised of local residents, parents, teachers, BOE members, Miami Township rep (s), and potential Arch/Eng./ Contractors for site development, Supt. Bob Farrell separated the participants into four groups, to lead discussions on the BOE's elements of the new K-6 school and its two locations. Next Board of Education meeting is at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21, at Boyd E. Smith. Community involvement is encouraged since construction at either location is expected to begin during the summer of 2014.

ture. Brown marmorated stink bug control in a home is simple: shop vac or vacuum, but clean your device-holding chamber after use so the bugs’ stench does not stay in the vacuum. Seal all cracks and crevices with caulk around doors, windows, air conditioners, etc. What we view as good caulking may not be enough for an insect to see a tiny crack as an opportunity to wiggle through to a new home.

Education group kicks off campaign “The 2013 Catholic Inner-city Schools Education Fund Campaign Kickoff Celebration was an evening to remember,” said CISE board member Louise Stakelin of East Walnut Hills. From the opening choral performance by St. Joseph School’s principal and students to the inspirational and hopeful comments from University of Cincinnati President Santa Ono, more than 300 guests enjoyed the program and festivities. Each year Catholic Inner-city Schools Education Fund (CISE) brings together major donors, volunteers, CISE schools’ teachers and staff, student representatives with their parents, alumni and friends to celebrate the start of their 2013 fundraising campaign. CISE must raise $2.5 million annually to provide the needed support to eight Catholic inner-city elementary schools in Cincinnati. The program began with a choral performance by the St. Joseph student choir, led by Principal Dionne Partee. Bishop Joseph Binzer presented two Faith in Education Awards. These awards are presented to those who have provided outstanding support for the advancement of CISE’s mission. This year’s honorees were Jack Twyman, awarded posthumously, and Ken Schuermann. The Twyman family accepted the award on behalf of Jack Twyman. Both Schuermann and Twyman served on the CISE Board and gave countless hours to the service of CISE. Schuermann served on the Executive Committee as chair for the Major Gifts effort for many years.

Twyman, one of CISE’s greatest ambassadors, joined the board in 1997 and was one of the original members of the CISE Executive Committee, serving on the committee until he died last year. Harry Santen followed with a presentation of the CISE Distinguished Educator Award to Holy Family pre-school teacher, Jennifer Drennan. This award goes to the CISE teacher who serves as an outstanding example of teaching excellence. In her application she said, “my students know that I love and care about each one of them and will treat them with respect. In turn, they learn to treat others with kindness and consideration.” Keynote speaker Ono wowed the crowd with his message as well as his genuine engagement in the evening’s events. He mentioned the Gen-1 Theme House as an example of UC's commitment to urban students like those educated in the CISE schools. Citing a quote from Martin Luther King Jr., “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase,” Ono compared that step to what CISE has been doing for more than 33 years. Ono pledged his support saying, “as long as I am in Cincinnati I will be on that staircase with you.” The evening concluded with remarks from Tim Stautberg who is co-chairing the 2013 CISE Campaign with siblings, Chris Stautberg, Beth Stautberg, Matt Stautberg and Peter Stautberg. After the program, Ono chatted with a group of CISE school graduates who are in their senior year at local Catholic high schools. UC is one the top choices for higher educa-

No-fail cookie cutouts are the most requested shortbread recipe

Breast cancer awareness month is over. It went out with a bang for me in a very special way. I was the presenter once again at Mercy Health Women’s Center reception in Anderson Township. Standing before 100plus radiant survivors was more than inspiring; it showed the resilience of the human spirit when faith is paired with good medicine. My presentation was on the history of tea and tea parties. Some trivia: Did you know the reason cream was first poured into tea was to prevent the very thin, fine china cups from cracking when boiling tea was poured into them? Also, the earliest tea cups had no handles. They were held cupped in the hands to keep hands warm. And tea sandwiches were originally made a bit dry since women wore gloves and they didn’t want to get them soiled. We had the best time, laughing and sharing stories. Among the treats to take home from Gail Greenburg and her staff were my shortbread cookies. Shortbread is perfect for a tea party since it’s such a versatile dough.

Rita’s no-fail shortbread cutouts

Let the kids free form shapes or use a cookie cutter. Dough freezes well, and so does the baked cookie, sans icing. A nice gift from the kitchen and my most requested shortbread recipe.

2 cups flour 1 ⁄4 teaspoon baking powder 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 1 ⁄2 cup confectioner’s sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla (or your favorite extract)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside. Rita Cream Heikenfeld butter and gradually RITA’S KITCHEN add sugar. Add vanilla. Blend flour mixture in. Dough will be soft. Roll out on lightly floured surface or between two pieces of plastic wrap to 1⁄4-inch thick or bit thicker if you like. If the dough is too soft to cut out shapes, put in refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Cut out and place on sprayed cookie sheet. Bake 15-20 minutes just until edges are golden. Icing Whisk together: 1 cup confectioner’s sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla 2-3 tablespoons water

Drizzle icing over cooled cookies, or make a thicker icing with less water, add food coloring if using, and spread on cookies. Makes about two dozen.

Tips from Rita’s Kitchen

To test to see if your baking powder is still active enough to leaven, put a teaspoonful in a cup of warm water. It should fizz right away.

Really good ranch dressing

I’m still waiting for someone to come up with a Frisch’s Restaurant ranch dressing clone for a reader. I have called Karen Maier at the corporate office a couple of times and have left messages with Lisa Norman in marketing, so I hope to hear something soon. Meanwhile, here’s a recipe from Marie N.,

a Northwest Press reader. “This goes together quicker than you’d think, and is delicious,” she said. A friend gave the recipe to her. Blend together either in blender, food processor or by hand: 1 cup mayonnaise (Marie uses Hellman’s) 1 ⁄2 cup regular sour cream 1 teaspoon garlic or to taste Palmful fresh dill, minced 1 tablespoon minced fresh onion chives (Marie said you can also used minced green onions) Worcestershire, salt and black pepper to taste 1 ⁄2 to 3⁄4 teaspoon clear or cider vinegar Several dashes paprika Cayenne pepper to taste (Marie said go easy on this) Buttermilk, enough to make desired consistency (start with 1⁄3 cup) Handful fresh minced parsley or 1 teaspoon dry

Rita’s no-fail shortbread cookies freeze well as dough or baked, but not iced, cookies. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Christmas Open House November 2-10

Chill several hours before using and, if necessary, add more buttermilk to get proper pouring consistency.

Tips from Rita’s kitchen

Pick a perfect pineapple: It should smell fragrant when you give it a sniff. Just one cup of pineapple has enough manganese, a trace mineral, for building healthy bones and connective tissue. Plus pineapple has lots of vitamin C. Canned pineapple is a good source of these nutrients too, but buy pineapple packed in juice, not in sugary syrup.

Scammers try to get your financial information Scam artists are using what continue to be tough economic times for many to try to get money from them – so you need to beware. Jill, who prefers I not use her last name, wrote she received a call from a man named Brian. “He called my home and left a long recorded voicemail threatening me and my husband that he was from the IRS and that we had to call back immediately or legal action would be taken,” Jill wrote. The man left a phone number with a New York

area code and Jill says when she and her husband called back, “Another man Howard with an Ain Indian HEY HOWARD! accent answered and wanted our attorney’s name. We said we don’t have one and he was very nasty saying, ‘How much money can you send today?’ We said, ‘Maybe a thousand dollars by next Thursday,’ and he said, ‘That’s not

good enough, you will be arrested today!’” Jill said that really shook them up because they were already on a payment plan with the Internal Revenue Service, but their next payment wasn’t due for another month. But the so-called IRS man said that payment plan had been rejected. All the money needed to be sent immediately, they were told, or they would be arrested. “He wanted our bank information or credit card number but we said ‘No’ and the guy hung up.

We called our attorney who said it was a scam … I’ll bet a lot of other people sent money and still owe the IRS. Just a heads up because I’m sure you are already aware of this crazy scam preying on innocent people,” Jill wrote. Yes, this scam has been going around for a few years. In some cases the caller leaves a recorded message claiming to be from a credit card company, a lawyer or a payday loan company in addition to claiming to be from the IRS.

Milford grad’s book wins award Cincinnati Book Publishing (CBP) is publishing “Cincinnati’s Terrace Plaza Hotel: An Icon of American Modernism” by University of Cincinnati DAAP graduate Shawn Patrick Tubb, also a Milford High School graduate. A book signing and exterior tour of the building will take place from noon to 2 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 9, at The Booksellers on Fountain Square, Tubb 505 Vine St., Downtown. Tour begins at 2:15 p.m. and is free, but is limited to book purchasers. Cincinnati Art Museum director Aaron Betsky wrote the foreword, which aptly describes the Terrace Plaza’s leadership position in the Modernist art and architecture movement in the U.S. after World War II. The manuscript won Cincinnati Book Publishing’s 2013 Young Voices Publication Award, which was sponsored by Judge Mark and Sue Ann Painter. Sponsors for the print edition are Erica Stoller of Esto Photgraphics, the Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation, and FotoFocus. Book sales benefit the Cin-

cinnati Art Museum and Cincinnati Preservation Association. While the Terrace Plaza Hotel was celebrated in its time, its significance has been all but forgotten in our own. Tubb reintroduces the

young designers, famous artists, and ingenious builders who collaborated to produce this radically new mixed-use complex. The star is pioneering woman architect Natalie de Blois, who waited 60 years to be recognized for her work. The story of her first-time, CPA-sponsored visit to Cincinnati is a moving one. Books will be available for purchase for $14.95 and autograph by the author at the event and at the Cincinnati Preservation Association. ACPA Annual Member Meeting is on Nov. 10, at Clifton Cultural Arts Center. See cincybooks.com for details and online purchase. Tubb has a master’s degree in architecture and a master’s degree in community planning (both from the University of Cincinnati), and a bachelor’s degree in film production (Bowling Green State University). He works for American Scenic Design Inc. in Pasadena. A panel judges selected Tubb’s work for the Young Voices Publication Award. Manuscripts were judged on literary quality, originality, substance, style, and reader appeal. Cincinnati Book Publishing uses locally sourced, collaborative work by Greater Cincinnati’s writers, editors, designers, and printers.

some of these scammers are out to get money while others are just trying to get your personal information. The BBB says never reply to unsolicited phone messages or click on links provided in an email asking for your personal information. If a caller claims you owe a debt, ask questions. The caller should state who they are, whom they represent and, upon request, send you written proof you owe the debt. Never give out financial information over the phone.

Bottom line, if someone calls and tells you they’ll have you arrested unless you pay them immediately: Remember, it’s just a scam. Instead, you should contact the police, the state attorney general and the Better Business Bureau to report the phone call. Howard Ain’s column appears bi-weekly in the Community Press newspapers.

United Methodist Church takes several bags of clothes down and the folks go through them and take some home. Thursday morning Ruth Ann and I left for Columbus to attend the Grange Convention. We stayed at the Ramada Hotel on Sinclair Road the accommodations were good. We went as the deputy masters for Adams, Clermont, and Highland counties. Bonnie Lytle and Linda Smith were the delegates for Clermont County, Monroe Grange. Penne and Bea went as delegates from Highland County Grange and enjoyed the convention. While we were checking in we saw some snow flurries. The folks from up by Lake Erie had 4 inches of snow on Thursday morning. A feller that lived up there said he heard on the news that they had another 8 inches the next day. Now to tell you I don’t have a greedy bone in

my body, I am glad they got the snow instead of us. They are in the snow belt too. This convention probably makes 30 years or better we have attended as delegates, member of the Executive Committee and deputies. The Grange is responsible for rural mail delivery, white lines on the side of the road, U.P.S. and a multitude of other things we enjoy. The Granges, like so many other organizations, are losing membership. November is membership drive for the Granges so anyone who would like to join can call the Rooks at 734-6980. On Monday morning we attended a funeral visitation for a feller that attended the Bethel United Methodist Church; it was Mr. Paul Dean Taylor. He will be missed on Sunday morning. I would shake his hand and get a smile. Probably the Good Lord needed another

I talked to the Boars Head Bait Shop in Afton. The results for the crappie fish-off for this year, which was a two-day event, was won by Rodney Powers. He had over 9 pounds of crappie. Mr. Powers’ secret bait is “Russell.” Now I won’t give any more of his secrets about this secret bait. Congratulations Rodney. Start your week by going to the house of worship of your choice and praise the Good Lord. God Bless All. More Later.

angel, so Paul will fill the spot. To tell you about Chessy – that cat is a very smart cat. She would be missing when Tony would come to check on our place and give her some food. Also our daughter Debby would come each day and get the mail and feed her too while we were gone to the convention. Well they would call her, but she could not be found. Well, we found out why. There was a window in the basement that was open a few inches. Chessy would crawl in through it and go back out the same way. On Monday morning Ruth Ann asked me, “Did you let Chessy in during the night?” She was setting on the window sill when Ruth Ann got up. I said, “No, I didn’t.” Then on Tuesday morning Ruth Ann got up and here came Chessy. So I went to the base-
