Hometown Holidays kicks off season in Milford By Kellie Geist-May

kmay@communitypress.com

MILFORD — With Halloween in the rearview mirror and fall not far behind, shops are swapping cornucopias and maple leaves for Christmas lights and snowmen Milford is no exception. The businesses in historic downtown Milford are busy preparing for the Christmas shopping season, which kicks off the weekend after Thanksgiving with the annual Hometown Holidays event. Hometown Holidays will be 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 25, and Saturday, Nov. 26. During Hometown Holidays, the shops in historic downtown will be open and most will have some type of special event. There also will be Christmas music, antique fire truck rides and carriage rides. The fire truck rides will be sponsored by Big Poppa Slim’s Cafe on Main, but visitors will have to pay for carriage rides. The city staff also is working to help with planning and coordination of the events. “We’re doing Hometown Holidays a little more loosely this year, so every store will have their own thing. We’re trying to focus more on the shops and the town than we’ve done in the past,” said Jeff Goetz, Historic Milford Association president. “We want people to know that Milford is a great place to bring the family to do a little shopping and enjoy the holiday season.” Repeat visitors can stop by and check out the shops that have opened since last Christmas, including Amy Kirchen’s boutique

Two other businesses, Auel’s Fine Chocolates and Road Rivers & Trails, will be celebrating their first anniversary during Hometown Holidays. Both opened during the event last year. “It’s been an amazing year. To celebrate, we’ll have giveaways on the hour on Friday and we’ll have a raffle for more than $3,000 worth of gear to raise money for charity,” said Emily White of Roads Rivers and Trails. She said people should come to Milford not only during Hometown Holidays, but whenever they need something special. “Milford offers shopping op-

portunities and gift ideas you can’t find anywhere else,” White said. “We’re excited to see everyone.” Auel’s ower Randy Auel said he hopes people will celebrate the chocolate shop’s anniversary by trying one of his new coffee or orange flavored rounds, sea salt turtles or caramels, or old fashioned candies. Auel’s will be giving out free popcorn and selling 10-cent hot chocolate during Hometown Holidays. “It’s been a big first year. I went from 35 years in construction to making and selling chocolate - I love it,” he said. “This community has been great and I’m

looking forward to (Hometown Holidays) this year.” Auel also will be letting people know the chocolate shop is selling Christmas party trays. “Just come to Milford that weekend and check out all the shops, listen to the Christmas music and get in the spirit,” he said. If you’re in the city for Hometown Holidays - or at all in December - Milford Greenhouse will have their trains on display. The greenhouse is at 1025 Lila Ave. The antique fire truck rides may take visitors to see the trains, but that is still being organized.

Mohawk Bluff manager recognized for heroism

By Kellie Geist-May

kmay@communitypress.com

MILFORD — Chad Reid had fully expected to take the day off. The Mohawk Bluff apartment complex manager told his boss he was clocking out, he didn’t set an alarm and was looking forward to sleeping in Saturday, Oct. 15. But around 6 a.m., when his cats started acting weird, he thought he should check things out. Next thing Reid knew, he was climbing a ladder to rescue residents trapped by a fire in the building. “I heard the alarm and I went outside to see what was going on. Then I was at the top of a ladder getting people out the window. I didn’t even realize what I was doing,” he said. “I just wanted to make sure the residents were safe.” By the time the fire department was battling the blaze inside the building, Reid, with the help of the police department, had helped rescue two children

and a mother from a third-floor apartment and another two residents at the other end of the complex. “I honestly didn’t process what I was doing - I’m just glad I was there and could help,” he said. Reid was recognized by both the Milford Police Department and the Milford Community Fire

Department chiefs during the city council meeting Nov. 1. He was given the police department challenge coin as well as Civilian Service Certificate signed by Fire Chief John Cooper and Police Chief Jamey Mills. “We, the fire and police departments, wanted to thank (Reid) in some way and let the people of Milford know that this

young man helped save lives that morning,” Cooper said. “He acted clearly and without any delay … Chad put aside the safety for himself and did what he felt was right and it’s my hope that those who were affected that morning thank him personally.” Chad said he was honored to receive the award, but humbled as well. “I certainly didn’t do it for the recognition. I helped because people were scared and didn’t know what to do,” he said. Assistant Fire Chief Mark Flanigan said two people were transported to the hospital - one for hand burns and one for smoke inhalation. Their names were not released. The damage to the building was mostly contained to one apartment, Flanigan said. The preliminary report said the cause of the fire was a lit cigarette. Reid said Aqua Flow Restoration worked over the weekend to have the residents back in their homes by Oct. 18.

best thing to happen to Odom Industries was coming to this county … the craftsmanship of the people in Clermont is without match,” Tim Odom said. Tim Odom said the name for Easy Street came after growing up on a notso-easy street. “In the late 60s, we lived in a trailer park on a street named Easy Street and we were trying to get out of there as fast as we could,” he said. “Now we’re business owners. Easy Street is an example of the American Dream.” Milford Mayor Ralph Vilardo Jr. welcomed Easy Street Rides and Rods to the city. “We certainly appreciate that you’ve chosen Milford,” he said. “What a wonderful addition to our city and our (Interstate 275) gateway. Thank you.” For more about Easy Street Rides & Rods, which also buys and sells cars, visit www.easystreetrnr.com.

MHS yearbook wins national honor

By John Seney

jseney@communitypress.com

MIAMI TWP. — Milford High School’s yearbook, the Droflim, has won two national awards. The 2011 edition of Droflim was awarded the highest rating from the National Scholastic Press Association. The yearbook has not been awarded the “All-American” rating since 2007, said Joe Claus, the yearbook adviser. To earn the rating, the yearbook must score over 3,700 points with at least four of the five marks of distinction, he said. “We received a score of 3,900 points with four out of five marks of distinction,” Claus said. The Droflim (which is Milford spelled backwards) also received the gold medalist rating from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, scoring 946 out of 1,000 points with two out of three marks of distinction. Claus said he submits the yearbook every year to the national organizations for judg-

ing. The awards are announced in the fall for the yearbook published the previous spring. The award-winning yearbook was produced by the staff for the 2010-2011 school year. Claus said most of the work is done by the students. He mainly provides guidance. “It’s a testament to the time and work they put in,” he said of the awards. The Milford yearbook is created in a class during regular school hours. There were 42 students in last year’s class, Claus said. The class is open to all high school students - freshmen to seniors - and students are allowed to take the class more than once. Some of the members of last year’s staff are on the staff again this year. Gabriele Hickman, a senior at Milford, was an editor on last year's staff. “We feel honored to be a part of something larger than ourselves,” she said. “Tenacity, teamwork, trials and tears brought us together as a staff

The staff of the 2010-2011 Milford High School yearbook, the Droflim, which won several national awards.

and we savor the emotions that come with winning the All American Award for our yearbook. The memories we’ve documented will continue to live throughout the community, and the lessons we’ve learned here will be a positive impact to our journey.” “I was ecstatic when I was

told that we had won the award,” said senior Casey Schultz, another member of last year’s staff. “We put so much time and effort into our book, so it really made us happy that we were recognized for it. Teamwork was the key factor in the construction of the book and without it we never would have

gotten it done.” “I have enjoyed my three years in the Droflim, two of which I was an editor,” he said. “It is a great program and I encourage anyone interested in journalism or photography to get involved in it.”

Outstanding season ends in Sweet 16 loss By Ben Walpole bwalpole@communitypress.com

MILFORD — The irony wasn’t lost on the Milford faithful. The Eagles boys soccer team dropped a 2-1 overtime game to Lakota West, Tuesday, Nov. 1, in the Division I regional semifinals. The very same Lakota West team that Milford inadvertently jumpstarted by embarrassing with a 5-2 win, Sept. 10. “They haven’t lost since they played us,” said Milford head coach Brian Croston. “They were a much better team than the last time we played them. “We played a great game. The whole second half we completely outplayed them. If we would’ve scored to equalize earlier I think we would’ve gone on to win the match.” As it was, the Eagles tied the game late in regulation to force overtime, but West netted the game-winner in the first extra session to advance. “Lakota West had to really defend hard,” Croston said. “We had so many chances in the second half. It’s just the way things go.” After surrendering five goals to Milford Sept. 10, West clearly refocused and turned its season around. The Firebirds went 13-0-1 in their next 14 games, allowing a total of seven goals. Milford, meanwhile, can take

‘SOCCER LIVES IN MILFORD’ It was a banner week for Milford soccer. No other Division I school in the area sent both boys and girls soccer programs to the regional tournament. “It’s obviously an accomplishment any time you get to regional play,” said Milford athletic director Mark Trout, himself a former Milford boys soccer coach. “It’s a compliment to our kids and our coaches and our youth programs.” The two Milford soccer programs have won five district championships since 2005, but this is the first time both boys and girls have taken home hardware in the same year. “It’s been this way for a long time,” Trout said. “Soccer lives in Milford.”

solace in an outstanding 15-4-2 season. The Eagles advanced to the round of 16 – their deepest tournament run since the 2008 regional runner-up team. “To be honest, I expected it with this group,” Croston said. “I felt like, before the season, we’d be – if not the best – one of the best teams in the city. And that proved to be true.” The tournament draw early on

did not exactly set up in Milford’s favor. A couple of early-season losses left the Eagles, perhaps, under-seeded at No. 8 in the district tournament. The result was a third-round match against highly touted Moeller. “We felt it was a very winnable game,” senior forward Kyle Grothaus said. “We didn’t play great for parts of it, but we kept going hard and we played with a lot of heart.” The game went to overtime tied 2-2, setting up what Grothaus called the most memorable moment of the season – his game-winning goal about eight minutes into the OT. “It was great,” Grothaus said. “As soon as I got the ball and turned, I knew it was gonna go in. Everyone went crazy.” Milford went on to beat Centerville 2-0 in the district title game for the third district championship in program history. The team relied heavily on its senior class this season, but Croston is optimistic about next season. The JV team went 14-1-1 this fall. “Their attitudes are fantastic,” Croston said. “I think the younger boys love to play, and they love to play an attractive brand of soccer. “Even though I started a bunch of seniors this year, I’ve got quite a few kids that played quite a few minutes with the varsity.”

MILFORD — So much for that “soccer-is-boring” argument. The Division I girls soccer regional championship game, Saturday, Nov. 5, at Lakota East High School provided a great case against those who think a sport isn’t interesting unless there’s a ton of scoring. Centerville and Milford played 92 minutes of scoreless soccer full of nail-biting, edgeof-your-seat drama. The Elks finally ended the tension with a goal in the13th minute of the first overtime to earn a 1-0 victory. “I’m just proud of the way the girls battled,” head coach Patrick Winkler said. “We have a team of warriors. The ball didn’t bounce our way, but in my eyes we’re still champions.” Senior goalkeeper Maddie Bunnell was superb in the Milford goal all game, closing out every Centerville scoring opportunity. The Milford attack, meanwhile, began to assert itself midway through the second half. The Eagles controlled the momentum of the game for the last 15 minutes of regulation and the bulk of overtime. The list of almost-game-winners was heartbreaking for Milford. » Kiersten Johnson caught the Centerville goalie out of goal for a moment but couldn’t quite push the ball into the net late in regulation. » Caroline Brown lofted a shot from the right side early in overtime that clanged off the inside of the right post. » Back-to-back corner kicks nearly netted sudden victory in the ninth minute of the extra session, but both attempts barely missed. “We had chances,” Winkler said. “We knew it was going to be tough to get one in the back of the net. Centerville had a lot to do with that.” Milford enjoyed the other side of the tournament spectrum earlier in the week, when freshman Tara Claus scored a goal in overtime to lift the Eagles to a 2-1

Milford’s appearance in the state’s Elite Eight marks the farthest the program has ever advanced in the postseason. “It’s huge,” Winkler said. “This is something that’s been in the works for several years.” With a roster full of third- and fourth-year varsity players, Winkler knew this team had major potential. But they had to endure some adversity early. Senior Morgan Wolcott, a four-time first-team all-Fort Ancient Valley Conference selection an Ohio State University recruit, missed all of the preseason and the first two weeks of the regular season with a knee injury. The team developed different scoring options in her absence and then worked together to help ease her back into the lineup. “I think we started jelling right at the right time,” Winkler said. “And the result is this run we’ve had in the tournament and

taking the program at Milford farther than it’s ever gone.” Wolcott wound up winning FAVC East Athlete of the Year honors. Winkler won his fourth straight league coach of the year award. Bunnell, Wolcott, Johnson and Megan Canter were named first team all-FAVC. Brown, Nicki Smith and Kelly Yee were second team. Stephanie Price earned honorable mention. The Eagles graduate seven seniors – Bunnell, Smith, Wolcott, Yee, Kat Bare, Katie Matson and Paige Shiplett. They won four FAVC championships, posting a 25-1 record in league play. “Our seniors always set the tone, set the bar, and our younger players rise up to that challenge,” Winkler said. “I think what we have going here at Milford is something really special. It started with previous years’ seniors and has just continued to build and build. It’s just great to be associated with a program like this.”

The playoffs were no different. And just like earlier in the regular season, Alter bested McNick,1-0, in overtime of the Division II regional semifinals, Nov. 2. The two teams played to a 0-0 tie in regulation, and the game had to be decided by shootout.

Adoption angels: Bethel church, Strimple You don’t have to gaze to the heavens in search of angels. Some walk among us. Look no farther than Bethel, a village of about 2,700 people. There, Denise Strimple and fellow congregants of Bethel United Methodist Church provide an inspiring example of compassion. They have taken on the task of fostering and adopting children whose parents are unable to care for them – often because of problems with alcohol or drugs. This became a major part of the 151-year-old church’s ministry after Denise and her husband, Mark, volunteered to become foster parents 23 years ago. Since then, they have cared for more than 30 foster kids – some for up to two years. The Strimples have inspired

OEPA monitors CECOS In 1972, operations began at the landfill in Jackson Township now known as CECOS. Before being shut down to accepting delivery of waste in 1988, the site became home to thousands of tons of highly toxic chemical industrial waste. Sealed in drums, the waste was stacked in pits in the ground that was lined with clay and plastic before being covered. As time goes by, obviously the metal drums will decay and the chemicals will leak to the surrounding dirt. The theory is that the pits are impervious to ground water getting in and likewise getting out. That’s the theory. The question is, is the 1970s technology of sealing acres of soil working? Some do not think so. What happens if the nasty chemicals leak into the area ground outside of the pits? What happens if they mix with other

What do you think about President Obama's plan to revise the student loan program, which would cap payments at 10 percent of discretionary income and forgive any remaining debt after 20 years?

“As far as college loan repayment capping and debt forgiveness, I think it sends the wrong message to college students. Currently most of them have lived through the bank and financial institution’s 'too big to fail' bail out and now it seems like advocating a 'too small to fail' system for the students. "While it appears that many current and future students will default on their loans as education becomes more expensive and the economy continues to right size, it is a good wake up call. "College in America is an economic privilege, not an inalienable right. With that in mind, perhaps some student loan relief can be applied to students who choose careers that are lucrative, and revenue generating. This could apply to some of the current high revenue/high profit generating industries of politics, political lobbying and bank/financial services.

Quirkiness is pleasant step back in time

A friend recently turned 60. One of the things you hear about turning 60 these days is that 60 is the new 40. That’s wrong. Sixty is six decades of wear and tear on the joints and tendons, and countless insults to the skin and bones. After 60, your body is beginning to phase you out. In your 40s, little aches and pains go away with aspirin or ibuprofen. After 60, there are no little aches and pains; there are only symptoms of horrible maladies; depending on how much sleep you’ve had, caffeine intake, or if you made any sudden movements recently, these symptoms may or may not stop. Symptoms don’t respond to medicine. Aches and pains are your constant companions. Don’t complain; no one cares if you’re malfunctioning so long as you are continent. Young people think you are living off their Social Security taxes, and take joy from your discomfort. Don’t let them see you wince, they might want to see you do it again. Remember to be pleasant to the staff in the rest home your loving family places you. No one under 40 sees older people. The only people who notice you are paid to. If an attractive person waves in your direction, don’t wave back. The object of their attention is behind you. Your name becomes “Dear,” or “Sweetie,” or “Sir,” or “Ma’am,” or “Honey.” You may even forget your own first name - no one uses it. Print shrinks. Just when you need to read the directions on medications, it gets too small to read. This is because we are the last generation that reads printed materials, so they don’t waste money on ink by making the print large enough to read. Besides, there is nothing but scary infor-

this matters. Don’t jaywalk. Jaywalking depends on being able to move quickly. After 60, your muscles no longer do “quick” - or even hurryup; and none of your nerves are interested in making them do so. Use crosswalks. At least your heirs will be in a better position to sue if you are wiped out in a crosswalk. So, what to do? Cherish quirkiness. During your working years, the time you spend with your partner is mostly devoted to routines to get through the day. After you retire, this is no longer necessary. You have time to interact, etc. Your partner’s quirks are what bring freshness, new perspective and just plain enjoyment into a day. You may know the parameters of a partner’s thoughts, but you have no idea where a quirky partner’s thoughts are going next. Soon you look forward to finding out “what is going to happen today?” It’s a pleasant step back in time; you reconnect with what attracted you to their company in the first place.

Ken Klosterman points out the parabolic dish that David Copperfield used in 1986 for the TV special "The Magic of David Copperfield VIII." It monitored Copperfield's heartbeat as he walked through the Great Wall of China.

Klosterman has the magic touch Lisa J. Mauch lmauch@communitypress.com

GOSHEN TWP. — Before Ken Klosterman got into the breadmaking business at age 16, he was in another business – magic. “I became interested in magic when my uncle used to fool me with a trick. I wanted to find out how it was done,” said Klosterman, founder of Klosterman Baking Company. “He wouldn’t tell me, he just gave me a book to read. That got me into reading and it got me into magic.” Kloseterman was just 9 years old and the book was “Tarbell’s Course in Magic.” “I picked up tricks out of this book and did birthday parties,” he said. “I did magic at college during rush. It was a hobby, not a profession. I’ve messed around with it all my life.” That hobby turned into one of the largest collections of magic memorabilia in the world.

Abracadabra

In 1970, Klosterman started to collect magic memorabilia that had connections to famous professional magicians such as Harry Houdini, Howard Thurston, Alexander Herrmann, Harry Kellar, Chung Ling Soo and Karl Germain. Over the years it has grown to include 3,000 apparatus, 1,500 posters, 8,000 books and 15,000 miscellaneous items such as props, photos, cards and magic coins. But it was in 1985, when Klosterman and his wife, Judy, purchased land in Goshen Township, that the collection unexpectedly found its current home. Originally, the Klostermans planned on building a little summer cottage. When they started work on it a giant, well-like hole was discovered. It turned out to be an air shaft that led down to caves that had once been used by American Indians and early settlers.

The theater section of the Victorian Room, complete with stage and backstage area. This is one of the nine rooms of Salon de Magie, Ken Klosterman's magic collection.

Ken Klosterman in the Salon de Magie next to the devil head that once belonged to Harry Kellar. His wife said she thought the caves would make a good place for his collection. “I’ve seen enough magic to last a lifetime,” she said. “When our kids were young Ken would come home and ask them if they’d like to see something. They’d shout out, ‘If it’s another magic trick we dont want to see it.’ ” So instead of a summer home they ended up with a horse farm up top for Judy, who is one of the top breeders in the region, and a nine-room magic museum down below for Ken. That air shaft now houses an 83-foot elevator that takes visitors down to the Salon de Magie.

Presto

Most of Klosterman’s collection covers magic from the 1800s through 1926, the year Houdini died. Even though Houdini is the most renowned - and collectible magician, he’s not Klosterman’s favorite. “Houdini, in my opinion, was a poor magician but a great promoter,” said Klosterman. “Everybody knows Houdini's name. Few people know the names of Thurston, Keller and Germain who were, in my opinion, the world’s greatest magicians.” Posters of these magical

greats are spread throughout the salon. Many of them were printed by the Strobridge Company of Cincinnati. Klosterman also has secret doors leading from one room to another, including a door that his wife found in Newport. It was reported to have been used in a house of ill-repute to help hide the women from police raids. As for his favorite item, he said, “How do you determine which one of your children you like best?” For lay people, some of the collection may not have as much significance as it would to practicing magicians. But there are pieces whose historical significance would impress almost anybody. Two of those items are a wooden lock and key from the Houdini collection that is reputed to be Mary Magdalene’s lock. He also has a light and heavy box that Robert-Houdin used to put down a revolt in Algiers by fooling people into thinking he had the power to make a strong man weak. “Magic is to entertain not to try and rule people. Of course that did happen in the early days of magic. That's how people were controlled by kings - through mysterious powers,” said Klosterman.

Ken Klosterman demonstrates a card trick using an antique wind-up bird.

Hocus Pocus Klosterman has done a lot over the years not only to preserve magical artifacts, but to promote their historical importance. He published the book by John Braun titled “Of Legierdemaine and Diverse Juggling Knacks” and wrote “Salon de Magie” with Gabe Fajuri. He’s been featured in several publications and served as president of the International Brotherhood of Magicians from 1995 to 1996. And now he’s decided to share some of his collection with the world. “I believe it's better to give while you're alive that way you know where it's going,” said Klosterman. “Maybe it's not the

largest (collection), but it's the most historical.” More than 300 items from the Salon de Magie went up for auction Oct. 29 at Potter & Potter Auctions in Chicago. They included autographed Harry Houdini memorabilia, posters, books and equipment. Potter & Potter owner Fajuri is a friend of Klosterman’s and helped archive part of his collection while attending the University of Michigan. An amateur magician himself, he’s excited to show off even a small portion of Klosterman’s collection. “I tell people about it all the time,” said Fajuri. “It’s a worldclass collection of magic.” Fajuri said there was a lot of advance excitement for the auction, with bidders from as far away as Singapore, Germany, Belgium and South America. “As a private collection, it’s right up there,” said Fajuri. “Ken’s done everything first class.” But just because he auctioned off some memorabilia doesn’t mean Klosterman has stopped hunting for items to fill Salon de Magie. “I'm always looking for magic,” he said. “If you have any magic, call Ken Klosterman. That's how I get most of my stuff.” When asked what it is about magic that draws people in, Klosterman said, “It takes them out of the everyday life. It gives them the opportunity to fantasize.” For more about Salon de Magie, visit www.salondemagie.com. To learn more about the auction, go to ww.potterauctions.com.

NOVEMBER 9, 2011 • CJN-MMA • B3

Honey roasted almonds make good holiday nibbler If you could see my kitchen counter right now, you’d think I was cooking for hundreds and you’d be almost correct. I’m doing a presentation for breast cancer survivors for Mercy Hospital Anderson Rita and the Heikenfeld theme is RITA’S KITCHEN gifts from the kitchen. We expect a total of about 100 participants. I wanted to give them something to take home, and decided upon my honey roasted almonds and crunchy peppermint bark. I’m in charge of the almonds and Gale Greenburg of Mercy is making the bark. So right now I have nine baking sheets full of honey roasted almonds. I have a feeling, though, I’ll soon have less since everyone who passes by takes a handful. I’m sharing that recipe today since it’s a good “before the feast nibbler” for Thanksgiving and other holiday gatherings, along with being my most requested nut recipe.

Better than store bought honey roasted nuts Almonds, like all nuts, contain fiber and protein, plus a good amount of calcium. If you’d rather substitute walnuts (great source of Omega 3) or your favorite nut, go ahead. 2 cups whole almonds, skin left on and toasted ¼ cup sugar or equivalent substitute ½ teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons ea: honey and water 2 teaspoons Canola oil

Mix sugar and salt in large bowl and set aside. Stir together honey, water and oil in pan and bring to a boil. Immediately stir in nuts and continue to cook and stir until liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Immediately transfer nuts to bowl with sugar/salt mixture and toss until evenly coated. Pour out onto sprayed cookie sheet. When cool, break up and store airtight at room temperature up to a month.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen:

To toast nuts: Pour in single layer on cookie sheet. Roast at 350 until fragrant, about 10-15 min-

Making your own honey roasted almonds gives you a good "before the feast" snack. The almonds are also good in recipes. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

utes. Stir from outside edge into center a couple of times. Want a spicy nut? Mix in some chipotle pepper powder with the sugar/salt mixture. Or add some cinnamon for cinnamon nuts.

Overnight blueberry French toast Doesn’t this sound good for those overnight holiday guests? It’s from Gracious Gifts cookbook put out by Sycamore Presbyterian Church. The book is well done. The church itself was founded in 1798 and continues to be a thriving congregation. I have done several presentations for them and I always leave with a smile on my face. The cookbook is over 500 pages with a nice, hard cover. The reci-

I love the special gifts section in the back from the staff at Sycamore. This brunch recipe was submitted by Janet Dimitt of the Tuesday morning bible study group, and I think it’s perfect for overnight guests, or yourself!

Try adopting a senior this holiday season Our Adopt-a-Senior Christmas program has grown quite a bit over the years, so we start early to make sure we have enough time to deliver all the gifts before Christmas. In fact, a couple of people who participated last year have already dropped off donations. 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. We match groups or individuals with specific requests from seniors who we know could use a little help. Lists 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 ones 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. Linda There Eppler COMMUNITY PRESS is also a need for GUEST COLUMNIST 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 and bath linens are too costly for them to replace, so the one or two they own may have to last for years. These low-income seniors can also use gift cards to stores like Wal-Mart, Kroger, and Meijer’s, where they can not only purchase food, but prescriptions as well. Typically, the requests are for small household items that most of us take for granted. However, last year a senior lady called in for help. She had no place to go, had few belongings and was living in a car that she borrowed from a friend. One of our social workers made her priority one and found her an

MILFORD — The Greater Milford Area Historical Society kicked off the first of two cemetery walks Oct. 3. The event was held at Mulberry Cemetery, a small family graveyard, located in a wooded area off Eastern Avenue behind Mike Castrucci Ford on Ohio 28. About 30 people attended theevent,includingmanyinterested in the genealogy and history of Milford and Miami Township. Donna Amann, administratoroftheGreaterMilford Area Historical Society, and Pam Hatcher, volunteer researcher, guided the tour. Amann and Hatcher walked attendees through the cemetery and explained the significance of the grave markings, as well as the importance of the Milford-Miami Township families buried in Mulberry Cemetery. Among those most notable were members of the McGrew, Gatch and Leming families buried there, as well as Revolutionary War soldier Isaac Leming. The second cemetery walk took place Oct. 9 at Greenlawn Cemetery. Proceeds benefited the society.

She contacted a local church and community group that provided a bed, furniture, pots and pans and other kitchen supplies. Through our adopt-a-senior gift pantry, we were able to provide her with sheets, towels, blankets, cleaning supplies and personal care items. Our staff called it a Christmas miracle. The lady couldn’t have been more excited or happier than we were. Most people find that doing something for others is especially rewarding during the holidays. Traditionally, a lot of the focus is on children, but our volunteers seem to love helping seniors just as much. Many of the gifts are wrapped with such care and creativity, that you can see how much joy it brings to the giver.

Sweet potatoes grow nicely in tub Howdy folks, Last week was busy here at our house. Tuesday Ruth Ann and I went fishing to stock up the freezer. We caught several nice sized crappie and a big catfish. Wednesday evening we had a new experience. We went with a group from our church to Lower Price Hill to the Kroger processing plant to help serve food to about 75 to 100 people. This was good for us. It made me more thankful for what we have. Thursday morning I picked enough green beans for Ruth Ann to can four pints. I also picked a two-gallon bucket of bell peppers, the tomatoes and little zucchini squash. It was good. I did this, as on Friday morning everything was white. That took care of everything in the garden except the broccoli, brussel sprouts, spinach and the lettuce seems to be OK. We did something different this year when planting the sweet potatoes. I had a small plastic tub about 14 inches wide full of dirt so I put a small sweet potato in it. The plant grew and I pulled the plant out of the tub and got enough sweet potatoes for two meals for us. This was a surprise so next year I will set some of these buckets out and put one plant in each. This proves you can grow food in small containers. At noon for dinner Thursday, we had my brother and sister-in-law and foster brother here for a fish dinner and boy

did they enjoy the fresh crappie and meal. Friday was Herb’s birthday. Friday George evening a Rooks couple that OLE FISHERMAN joined the Monroe Grange were here for a fish supper and spent the evening. What an enjoyable time we had with Tony and Kate. Friday we took corn to the Bethel United Methodist Church for a funeral meal. The feller that the Good Lord called home was Chester Campbell. As long as he was able he was at church. He will be missed by his family and friends. Saturday evening the Bethel United Methodist Church had their Holy House during the trick or treat time. What a crowd. They counted 2,115 folks went through. What a way to present the love of the church and teachings of Christ. The Holy House was set up on Friday evening

by dozens of folks. The scenes were of the birth, crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. Then the folks came through the other side of the fellowship hall for cookies, popcorn, orange drink or water. The folks spent a big part of the day popping corn. They had about 1,800 bags of popcorn. There was some left so the children at Sunday School got to eat them. The love of this church really shows, don’t you think? The Community Thanksgiving Service will be held at this church Sunday, Nov. 20 so come and enjoy. The Spring Grove United Methodist Church out of Nicholsville will have their annual soup, salad, dessert and bazaar from 10 a.m. till 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 12. The Newtonsville United Methodist Church will have their annual chili dinner and bazaar on the same day with chili, barbecue, voney’s and dessert from 10 a.m. till 7 p.m. And the St. Mary’s Catholic Church Craft

TIGHTEN, TONE & FIRM IN SIX DIFFERENT WAYS!

Bazaar and Lunch is also that weekend, on Friday and Saturday. We went to visit a couple last Monday. They had a poem they had been given so we borrowed it to put in this article. We took some fresh fish to Gene and Virginia. These are wonderful folks with some health problems. The A & M Orchard out of Fayetteville still have a good amount of apples, pumpkins, apple cider and lots of other things in their store, so stop and see them. Start your week by going to the house of worship of your choice and praise God. God bless all. More later.
