Food Share helping hungry, bringing people together By Marika Lee


Sycamore student looking to spark creativity

About a year after its first food collection, the Montgomery Food Share has almost 300 participants and has collected more than five and a half tons of food. The Montgomery Food Share will be marking the oneyear anniversary of its first food pick-up with a pick-up June 7. In its first year the food share has collected more than 11,000 pounds of food, which was donated to the FreeStore Food Bank, said Coordinator Wendy New in an email. New said she got the idea for the food share after hearing about a similar program in Oregon. She started meeting with people in her neighborhood and Montgomery assistant community engagement director Faith Lynch about starting the program. “In April, we started recruiting my neighborhood and by June 2013 we were ready for our first collection,” New said. Lynch said the city saw the advantages of the program, beyond helping to get food to those who need it. “Our purpose is to get neighbors talking to neighbors and creating neighborhood cohesion,” Lynch said. Currently, the food share takes place in nine Montgomery neighborhoods: Montgomery Woods, Swaim Field, Governor’s Watch, Forestglen, The Winds, Montgomery Heights, Storybrook Acres, The Reserve and Shadowhill Acres. The program has 300 donors. The donors are given a reusable grocery bag and are encouraged to buy extra food items every time they go shopping and put them in the bag. Every few months volunteer drivers come and collect the bags. The bags are dropped off at Computer Xpress, 10014 Montgomery Road, and then taken to the FreeStore Food Bank to help fight food insecurity in the area. In Ohio, 17.2 percent of households face food insecurity each year and in Hamilton County 21.1 percent of children are food insecure, according to Feeding America. “(That means) at some point in the year a household eats less, does not eat nutritious

meals or goes hungry because there is not enough money for food,” New said. New said the city of Montgomery and many local businesses have helped out the pro-

gram in its first year. “(Lynch) was extremely helpful when we first started to meet and has also given us great advice as we have grown,” New said. Lynch said she helped New market the program and worked to get more neighborhoods involved. She added the city awarded a $1,000 grant to purchase the reusable bags with the Montgomery Food Share logo.

“In addition, local businesses have made donations including Comey and Shepherd Realtors, Montgomery Square, the Montgomery Farmers Market and the FreeStore Food Bank supplied us with over 200 bags to get us started before we could print our own bags,” New said. Lynch said the benefit of the program is more than the amount of food that has been donated. “Our interest was to get people talking to each other and that has been the case,” she said, adding she has had Montgomery residents tell her they have had the same neighbors for five years but never had a reason to speak with them until the program started. New said having a lasting effect on hunger is the area was always her goal for the program. “Instead of asking for onetime contributions of food, our volunteers enlist their neighbors to become long-term food donors,” New said.

After spending a weekend memorizing terms for the SAT test, Sycamore High School senior Rajat Bhageria wanted to create a way for his classmates and all high school students to share their creativity. “You see, currently it’s extremely difficult to publish work in high school and so people Bhageria cannot express their creativity with the world. It is as if ideas are sitting latent and unused,” Bhageria, who grew up in Blue Ash but now lives in Loveland, said, in an email. Bhageria founded, a social-networking site for students to publish creative essays, stories, papers, research and poetry. Posts are divided into categories or Mochas, which range from fiction stories to physics to design. The site launched in January. Though there are sites for people to share their photos or music, Bhageria said there didn’t seem to be a wide-reaching, respectable site to share written work. “CafeMocha would be a social network for more academically-oriented works that can be incorporated into school,” he said. Within its first month, the site reached 30,000 page views. Bhageria said his goal is for the site to reach150,000 page views a month by the end of summer. “In the future, I hope to establish CafeMocha as a website that schools can incorporate into their everyday curriculum.

Indian Hill school board discusses field improvements By Forrest Sellers

The Indian Hill Board of Education is refining plans for the new upper level ball fields. During a special meeting May 22, representatives for MSA Architects presented the board with preliminary plans for the baseball and Sharp softball fields at the high school. Earlier this year, the board approved field improvements as part of a 2014-2015 capital plan. As part of the field improvements, synthetic turf will be installed as well as bleachers and a new multipurpose practice field. Lighting, a scoreboard and fencing is also part of the plan.

A $1.2 million improvement project is planned for the upper level baseball and softball fields at Indian Hill High School. Once a plan is approved, work on the fields could potentially start in June.FORREST SELLERS/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

An initial cost for the field improvements is about $1.2 million. However, some adjustments may be made to the plan. Among the considerations is removing the brick veneer that would be behind the dugouts and the wall behind home plate. Removing the brick veneer would help lower the costs, according to Bill Baker, a principal with MSA Architects. However, a number of

the board members would like to retain the brick veneer. “Are there things we can switch out to offset costs of the brick veneer?” Board Member Tim Sharp asked. Also under consideration is the installation of VIP seats in the bleachers. Board Vice PresidentErik Lutz, who is also chairman of the district’s Operations Committee, said the seats could be an alternative to the traditional metal benches.

However, Sharp had concerns about how the seats would be incorporated into the bleachers. “I don’t know how it will work operationally,” he said. “I think we should gauge interest.” Adding the VIP seats, which would be in a design different from the metal bleachers, will cost about $7,300. It would include about 60 seats. The school board suggested getting feedback from the Indian Hill Boosters regarding the

seats. The Boosters could potentially solicit donations to help cover the installation costs, according to Board Member Eddie Hooker. During the meeting, the addition of a press box was discussed as part of a later phase of the project. Once a plan is approved work would could begin in June and be completed by September. The school board will likely finalize a plan during one of its upcoming meetings.

hensive and challenging, developed by a committee of police executives and academicians to help better prepare future leaders of police agencies. “The benefits to the organization and the community are having highly educated, professional officers who practice leadership skills and are confident in their profession,” Chief Paul Hartinger said. “By providing these opportunities, our current staff will have the skills and abilities to become the future leaders of our department.” Sgt. Ballauer has been

with BAPD since 2002. He is a graduate of the 65th PELC class, adding to the other 13 Blue Ash officers that have gone through the program

since 1992. The remaining four sergeants plan to attend PELC over the next year, making Blue Ash’s entire supervisory staff PELC graduates.

Bhageria said some teachers at Sycamore have already encouraged their students to publish their work on the site. CafeMocha has turned into a learning experience, Bhageria said. He manages and markets the site himself and has done his own research on search engine optimization and entrepreneurship to support it. “The great thing about projects like CafeMocha is that there really are no limitations.

He hopes to form a team to work on the site and improve it with his engineering and business education. “People will do their best work when they want to; when they are intrinsically motivated, not when working for grades, college admittance or money. Why not make a site that allows students?” Bhageria said. Want to know more about what in happening in the Sycamore Community Schools? Follow Marika Lee on Twitter: @ReporterMarika

Overture Award winners earn $34,500 in arts scholarships The Cincinnati Arts Association’s Overture Awards Scholarship Competition annually awards $3,500 scholarships to six area students for education and training, with 18 runners-up each winning $750 scholarships. Students are nominated by their schools and/or private studios to compete in one of six disciplines: creative writing, dance, instrumental music, theater, visual art or vocal music. The scholarship program is the largest of its kind in the United States and was developed to recognize, encourage and reward excellence in the arts among Tristate students in grades 9-12. There are three levels of competition: regional, semifinal and final. 2014 Overture Awards scholarship winners Creative writing: Zoe

Cheng, Hyde Park, Walnut Hills High School junior Cheng has collected awards from national institutions like the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards and YoungArts. She owes her current passion to her supportive family and a childhood filled with books. She plans to pursue a screenwriting career, and wishes that her writing always be a reflection of the truth. Dance: Lauren Slouffman, Anderson Township, Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy sophomore Slouffman has studied dance at Just Off Broadway since the age of 3. She has received numerous awards for her dance achievements including being named as an Overture Awards semi-finalist in 2013. She aspires to dance on Broadway and con-

tinue to share her love of performing with audiences of all ages. Instrumental music: Joseph Vaz, Blue Ash, Practice to Prosper Piano Studio, Sycamore High School junior Vaz has played the piano for eight years and plans to pursue it in college. He has played at Weill Recital Hall in Carnegie Hall and has opened for Sean Chen, Crystal Award winner at the Van Cliburn Competition. Recently, he won the New Horizons Piano Competition and DePauw University’s Piano Competition. Theater: Melissa Campbell, Wyoming, McCready Voice Studio, Wyoming High School sophomore Campbell has loved singing since she performed “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” for

Santa Claus at the age of 4. She was introduced to musical theater when she was 9, and has been training and performing ever since. She hopes to major in musical theater in college and make it her profession. Visual art: Paige Schlosser, Mainville, Kings High School senior Scholsser’s love of drawing and painting started at an early age, but through a growing digital art program at her school she’s been introduced to digital design, photography, and film. She has loved experimenting with many art forms. Her scope of interest goes all the way from her series in digital collage to taking classes such as woodworking at the Art Academy of Cincinnati. Schlosser says she finds a lot of inspiration in Cincinnati’s local artists.

“Cincinnati is developing into more of an arts district. Just from being around and meeting other local artists, I’ve been challenged to develop my art further outside the scope of the small community I’ve grown up in,” she said.. She plans to study documentary film at Columbia College in Chicago starting this fall. Vocal music: James Rootring, Hyde Park, Karl Resnik Studio, Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy sophomore Rootring became interested in vocal performance after attending a CCM Prep musical theater summer camp in 2009. Today, he performs in the Young Artists Professional Program at the Musical Arts Center, his church band, and Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy’s theater, choir and band.

Ursuline welcomes students and teachers from Aachen, Germany

Ursuline Academy welcomed 20 students and three teachers from St. Ursula Gymnasium in Aachen, Germany, for an academic exchange that has existed between the schools for10 years. Every other year students and teachers from Aachen come to Cincinnati in the spring for three weeks, and then Ursuline students and teachers visit Aachen in June when the academic year is

over. Students and teachers stay with families from the schools, and experience cultural excursions and classes in the new country. “We are happy to have developed this partnership with St. Ursula Gymnasium,” Ursuline Principal Tom Barhorst said. “It gives our students the opportunity to get a deep and complex view of another culture. They see their own culture experienced by

someone else, and then they are immersed in a new culture that they’ve studied for years.” While in Cincinnati, students from Aachen attended classes with their host sister, participated in a German heritage tour of historic Over the Rhine, visited The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and attended a Reds baseball game. They also traveled to Chicago for a

weekend to participate in an architectural tour and attend a musical. Ursuline world languages teacher and Foreign Exchange Program coordinator Lynda Hoffman-Jeep explained the advantage of an academic exchange. “Academic exchanges stand in stark contrast to the typical 'trips' that are offered by companies that have students traveling by bus from

site to site, to jump out and visit a museum or castle, but have little or no intimate and committed contact with local individuals and educational institutions. Academic exchanges provide deeper and lasting experiences for the mind, heart and soul." As part of Ursuline’s academic exchange program, students from Reims, France, visited Ursuline at the beginning of May.

Sycamore Lady Aves lacrosse reigns at state ONLINE EXTRAS

SYCAMORE TWP. — It was hard for the

Sycamore High School girls lacrosse team to sneak into Thomas Worthington for the Division I state semifinals. Though not arrogant, the Lady Aves came to the Columbus area with a reputation, an 18-0 record and the No. 1 ranking in by They follow the West African proverb of “speak softly and carry a big stick”, but actions speak louder than words. Outside of close games with Medina and Mason in mid-April, Sycamore ran through their pre-semifinal schedule like scorched earth. From May 6-19 the Lady Aves scored 20 or more goals four times in a row, beating Springboro, Anderson twice and Walnut Hills by a combined score of 84-10. Part of their dominance came from sincere determination by the senior class to gain what eluded them the three previous years. “Freshman year we lost in the district finals, sophomore year we lost in the semifinals and junior year we lost in the finals,”defender Kara Marth said. On May 30, Sycamore took on 18-1 Olentangy. Coach Eddie Clark’s Lady Aves got four goals each from Brittany Murphy and Liz Macvittie to pull away and win 14-8. That set up a rematch with Medina, Sycamore’s toughest opponent all season. This time, it wasn’t even close.

Sycamore lacrosse coaches celebrate the school’s third state championship. From left are assistant Allison Bell, head coach Eddie Clark and assistant Meredith Post. THANKS TO MEREDITH POST

The Lady Aves raced out to an 11-3 halftime lead and won 14-6 to finish off a perfect 20-0 season with their third Ohio Division I title. “We played our best game of the year,” Clark said. “Abby Wise in goal was phenomenal, Evie Goodyear dominated the draw circle and Brittany Murphy just dominated offensively. They tried to shut out Kara Marth and Ashley Bonnoitt, but they didn’t have an answer for Brittany.” Helping Clark guide the Lady Aves to

perfection were assistants Allison Bell and Meredith Post. Allison Bell was a captain on Sycamore’s first title team in 2007 and Post played in 2005 when they first made the state semifinals. “This is by far the most talented team,” Clark said. “We have so many weapons. We have so many people that can step up. We have eight or nine girls that have 20 goals or more. We have a defense that won’t stop. Our biggest competition is in practice every day.” An early season trip to Maryland helped the team build relationships that Sycamore’s captains credit for their spring success. “This team is so close,” Marth said. “That’s what we’ll all remember most, the bond between the team.” Added goaltender Abby Wise, “From top to bottom, the seniors are best friends with the freshman.” Playing their final games for Sycamore over the weekend were Abby Wise, Cassy McDowell, Madeline Baker, Sara Constand, Elise Reardon, Kara Marth, Brooke Goodwin, Liz Macvittie and Ashley Bonnoitt. A 20-0 record won’t be easy to repeat. “We graduate eight seniors so it’s going to be tough,” Clark said. “We do return a lot of really good players, too.”

COLUMBUS — Though Sycamore High School’s boys tennis team seemingly makes perennial trips to the Ohio state tennis tournament, coach Mike Teets never had a state champion until May 31. When Sycamore junior Nakul Narendran and senior Mustafa Ahmad defeated Kevin and Ryan Brown of Toledo St. John’s Jesuit 6-3, 6-3, Teets and the Aviators had the elusive hardware. In beating Toledo St. John’s Jesuit, Narendran/Ahmad also exacted revenge on the duo that eliminated teammates Alex Wittenbaum and Noah Stern in the first round. “There were four, five or six teams that we were very impressed with,” Teets said. “There were a lot of teams that could’ve won it.” The division I champions also beat another tandem from Toledo St. John’s Jesuit in the first round before beating pairs from Copley and New Albany. Narendran had been Sycamore’s No. 2 singles player during the season, with Ahmad focusing mainly on doubles. As a senior, Ahmad now leaves on a personal high and his name permanently in the Ohio high school record books. “It’s really cool,” Teets said. “He’s worked hard and I couldn’t be more happy for him.” The Aves didn’t have much time to celebrate as they went to the state team tournament the next day. At deadline, the boys won that tournament. Story to come in next week’s issue.

CHCA baseball run to state a team effort By Adam Turer

Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy baseball has made this run look easy. The Eagles are unscored upon through five postseason baseball games, and earned the program’s second berth in the state final four. Now, CHCA is two wins away from claiming its first Division III state baseball title. The pitching has been dominant, but the Eagles have used a team effort to advance this far. “We’ve thrown the whole bag at them,” said head coach Jeff Keith. “We’ll do whatever it takes to win.” No matter how well a pitcher is hurling, he needs some run support. Senior starting pitchers Cameron Varga and Blake Swanger have been impressive and have benefited from the consistent slugging of senior catcher Kyle Davis. Davis has provided all the offense the Eagles have needed this postseason. Davis homered in CHCA’s sectional and regional wins, and had the go-ahead runs batted in the the Eagles’ district clincher. Davis’s slugging (.511 batting average, 39 runs batted in) is a luxury that the

CHCA’s Cameron Varga, working the mound against Loveland in 2013, was recently named th Ohio Gatorade Player of the Year.FILE PHOTO

Kyle Davis of CHCA, shown signing his letter of intent to play baseball for West Virginia University, has been the key to the Eagles’ offense. FILE PHOTO

Eagles need not rely on. The West Virginia University commit has four home runs on the season and set a school record for most career doubles. He has also played stellar defense behind the plate and occasionally at third base. When the Eagles need a big hit, he steps up. But, when they simply need to move a runner over, he’s game for that, too.

“They’ve bought into my plan of playing aggressive, carefree baseball,” said Keith. “They’re okay with playing small ball and playing for runs early.” From the top of the lineup to the bottom, the Eagles know what it takes to win and are willing to do it. Ricky Silvestri, Ryan Smith, and the Murray brothers, Chase and Cameron, are willing to share

the offensive load. “Nobody’s selfish,” said Keith. “We play selfless baseball.” There is also pitching depth behind Swanger (1.30 ERA) and Varga (0.00 ERA) with Graham Lally and Conner Osborne. Varga, a University of North Carolina commit and likely first-round pick in the June 5 Major League Baseball draft, was named the Ohio Gatorade Player of the Year. He broke a national record set in 1972 by striking out 33 consecutive batters, over the course of three games. Two more wins would make this season even more historic. The Eagles (28-2) have gotten this far by focusing on each pitch, each at-bat, and each opponent. While it would have been easy to let overconfidence creep in, the Eagles have remained humble and driven. “This team has never quit,” said Keith. “This team has a great instinct to keep going. They never look a game ahead. It’s been a joy to coach these guys.” CHCA faces Orrville (18-11) at 4 p.m. Thursday, June 5, at Huntington Park in Columbus. With a victory, the Eagles will meet either Coldwater or Wheelersburg for the championship at 1 p.m., Saturday, June 7, at Huntington Park.

Moeller’s speed, pitching propel them to state By Scott Springer

CORRYVILLE — The big, blue Moeller High School fire truck that shows up at major Crusader sporting events will be making yet another appearance at Huntington Park in Columbus. Armed with their 11th straight district title after beating Centerville, coach Tim Held’s crew got a shutout from Zach Logue to dispatch Beavercreek May 30 at the University of Cincinnati’s Marge Schott Field. That set up the Greater Catholic League/Greater Miami Conference showdown with Mason the next evening. They appeared to be in the driver’s seat with a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the seventh and sophomore lefty Nick Bennett chewing up Comets. However, Mason managed to get runners to second and third with two outs and

cleanup hitter Andy Marzheuser up. What looked like a game-ending grounder to Moeller’s Riley Mahan took a strange hop and suddenly, the game was tied. The next hitter, Rodney Hutchison, singled to left and pinch-

runner Logan Williams tried to tie it Pete Rose/ Ray Fosse-style. Moeller’s Bailey Montoya stood ground and Williams was ejected for bumping the catcher. The game stayed knotted at 3 until the 9th when Moeller loaded the bases and Hutchison hit junior Joe Vranesic with a pitch to make it 4-3. The Comets got out of the inning without further damage, but

went1-2-3 against Vranesic as the Crusaders prevailed. “Mason scored those runs so fast,” Held said. “There wasn’t time to get nervous. When they had the runner on second and got the base hit to left field, I was nervous. Kyle Butz comes up and throws a strike at home. That was a huge play.” Bennett picked up the win with four innings of four-hit relief and junior Vranesic got the save. Nick Voss, starting on the field he’ll be pitching at next season, went four in-

nings allowing just three hits and a run. Held was impressed with the composure of his pitchers. Moeller now moves on to play Massillon Jackson at 1 p.m., Friday, June 6, at Huntington Park. Jackson’s record is 24-5 and Moeller is 24-4. They’ve done it often with speed and pitching. The offense against Mason left Held with some promise. “Everybody’s expecting us to score 10 runs,” Held said. “People look at our numbers and say we’re not the same ol’

Moeller. I think banging out 10 hits against those three pitchers, I think it’s all there.” Pitching plans had not yet been decided at presstime, but it’s a safe bet you’ll see University of Kentucky-bound Zach Logue on the bump in Columbus. Like many of the Crusaders, he’s now a postseason veteran of the big stage. “We know when Zach’s on the mound he’s going to keep the run count low against us,” Held said. “If we can score three or four, we feel pretty confident.” By tradition, the Crusaders collect a bottle of dirt at each game and take it to the next. With a victory, they empty it and refill it with the dirt of their last field. Moeller’s Nick Bennett snuck on Marge Schott Stadium’s mound some 30 minutes after the regional win and stuffed some UC dirt into his pocket. The next bottle awaits.

Moeller’s lacrosse season ends in OT St. Xavier senior Jack Caudill ended Moeller’s lacrosse season May 28 by scoring in sudden death overtime for the 8-7 win in the Division I regional semifinals. Senior J. Da-

vid Sturgis had three goals for Moeller in the defeat. The Crusaders finish the season at 10-10.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Tell Kasich to veto SB 310

Recent news about climate change including reports from the White House and the United Nations confirm that climate change is caused by burning fossil fuels. President Obama reported that climate change is happening now and we must act now. However, our enlightened Ohio Senate decided to ignore all science on climate change and return Ohio to 100 percent use of fossil fuels for energy. This would reverse the 2008 legislation that opened the door for Ohio to become the leader in energy efficient LEED certified buildings and renewable energy production including wind, solar and battery production and application. Every dollar invested in the utilities’ efficiency programs pays back at least $2 in short-term benefits to their customers, and much more in the longer term. Electricity ratepayers across the state saved $1.03 billion from 2009 to 2012 through the utility energy efficiency programs according to the Ohio Utilities PUCO filing. $6 billion of private money invested in Ohio’s renewable energy industry and 25,000 new jobs created in Ohio since 2008 will all be lost if this bill goes through. SB310 passed the Senate in record time, making substantial last minute radical changes with no public testimony. Now in the House, it has already had two hearings, another record for expedience. Passage of this bill will increase home utility bills $500 per year and increase small business utility bills $3,000 per year (source: Ohio State University). Ohio would lose tax breaks and services for poor families, weatherization programs, distribution of free efficient light bulbs, smart metering programs and many other money and energy saving services Here is an opportunity for you to do your part to slow climate change and save thousands of jobs in Ohio. Call Gov. Kasich today and tell him to veto SB 310. Joanne Gerson Montgomery

Ballot box one way to defeat terrorists On May 15, I watched the 9/11 Museum dedication ceremonies in New York City. It was a tremendous emotional presentation; not a dry eye anywhere, including mine. The several speeches by politicians brought to my mind, maybe the reason we elect the political leaders is because they give beautiful speeches to make us feel good after a disaster. However, politicians are very skillful in hiding their negligence in protecting us. Negligence that promotes disasters . Most acts of terrorism did not and do not have to happen if our so called “public servants” really did their jobs in protecting us. The main purpose of “government” is to protect its citizens. What good is a government over all dead people?

Just think about it – before the 9/11 attacks, a CIA agent reported that Islamic radicals were taking Boeing 747 flying Ted Day COMMUNITY PRESS lessons for two years in FloriGUEST COLUMNIST da without takeoff or landing instructions. However the agent’s CIA supervisor did not pursue this warning because he felt it was not politically correct to target a group of Muslim men for suspicion. (Political correctness gone amok.) Or going back two years before Sept. 11, 2001, after Osama Ben Laden declared war on America, the CIA had him in their gun sights in Afghanistan. The Bill Clinton White

house refused to authorize the extermination of Osama. Maybe because of possible collateral damage. (Political correctness again gone amok.) The result - more than 3 ,000 Americans slaughtered in New York, and Washington and Pennsylvania Sept. 11. Or how about when our trusted government authorities ignored several warnings from the Russian KGB that Tamerlan Tsarnaev - resident of Boston - was being trained in terrorism in the Dagestan Republic, Russia. The Washington administration was in disbelief that their idea of resetting relations with Islam in their new self-declared political correctness and friendship to all agenda could backfire. I think that rather than have fancy speeches and ceremonies after a terrorist attack. Our

government employees should do everything (including non politically correct actions) in their power to prevent terrorist attacks. We need people of action in government - not grandiose rhetorical fools. Have you had enough of this political deception, or do you just want to continue to attend memorials and listen to emotional rhetorical speeches after the coming terrorist attacks?. In the next election, please consider the character and trustworthiness of the candidates or you and maybe thousands of your neighbors may be the next subject for an emotional eulogy. Hint: vote for the candidates that are trustworthy. Your vote counts. Ted Day is a resident of Montgomery and a Sharonville business owner.

Grading the graders an idea worth considering Should Ohio pass a law that mandates students to grade their teachers? The apparent answer to this question is, yes. After all, students are the direct beneficiaries of everything that takes place within a given teacher’s classroom. How students should grade teachers and what impact their ratings might have on a teacher’s ultimate evaluation are questions under consideration in Senate Bill 229. Unanswered questions involve the administration of the student surveys. Does the classroom teacher distribute the surveys in class? Will a building principal conduct the surveys in each teacher’s class? Will students be permitted to complete the surveys outside class? If students, particularly some elementary children who struggle with reading, will they receive assistance?

Will the surveys be confined to classroom teachers or extended to include music, art, physical education Noel H. Taylor COMMUNITY PRESS teachers? What about GUEST COLUMNIST administrators? Should they become subject to students written assessments as well? Another question receiving attention is the section of the bill that assigns results from students annual surveys to up to 20 percent of a teacher’s evaluation. This is just as unfair as mandating that 50 percent of each teacher’s evaluation be comprised of data extracted from the state’s annual standardized tests. Students’ views of teacher performance are not only desirable but necessary, espe-

cially over a period of multiple years. In fact Information gleaned from students’ surveys and comments should be a factor in the school administrator’s evaluation of a teacher Skeptically speaking,however, the Ohio State Legislature’s actions to mandate specific content to evaluate teacher performance is an unwarranted effort to further diminish the professional expertise of individual teachers at the expense of its ultimate goal of waging war on teachers’ unions. Despite the public’s resounding rejection of Senate Bill five, the legislature is now conducting one sided negotiations on issues that should be discussed at the local bargaining table. It’s clearly evident that the hallowed conservative principle of local control does not apply to contract negotiations between boards of education and teachers unions.

Unfortunately, Ohio has joined other states with Republican dominated legislatures that are attempting to enact laws that limit the rights of teachers and unions that represent them. This survey proposal is just one in a series of legislative efforts to provide boards of education additional power to dismiss tenured teachers without due process. Until the legislature’s partisan composition is changed, its effort to weaken organizations that represent teachers will succeed while standardized test results and data from students’ surveys will have a debilitating influence on students’ ultimate achievement.

Become a grill master with these basics

Gosh, how time flies. Seems like it was just yesterday when my boys were little and my husband, Frank, answered this way when I asked him what he wanted for Father’s Day. Rita “No Heikenfeld presents, RITA’S KITCHEN just something from the grill and some peace and quiet.” I have to laugh when I recall how the food was never a problem, but the peace and quiet sure was. Dad’s day is a good time to celebrate all the dads in your life, both ones you are related to and those you are not. And if you’re nervous about feeding him a feast from the grill, here are some basics to make you a grill master!

Grilling basics 101:

Clean that grill: A long handled, stiff brush works well. Use it twice: when grate is preheated but before the food goes on and again after you’re done cooking, while it’s still hot. Oiling the grate: Best to do when grill is hot. Make a small pad out of a paper towel and dip it into oil, then rub it with

long handled tongs over bars of grate. This also helps clean off debris. If you want to spray, take grate off grill away from the fire. Never spray oil onto grate over the fire. Wood chips: these add distinctive flavors, and should be soaked in water about 30 minutes before grilling. I like to soak chips in wine and herbs. Just drain them well and wrap in a foil packet. Poke holes in top only and place among the coals or rocks. Have on hand: Thick grill gloves, oven mitts or potholders, apron and towels. Salt it down! A box of coarse salt is a must to have for sprinkling over a grease fire. Don’t know a rub from a mop? Rub: a “dry” marinade – a mixture of dried seasonings rubbed directly onto surface of meat. Adds intense flavor and coating forms a seal. Let rubbed meats stand for 30 minutes before cooking to allow seasonings to penetrate. Mop: this comes from the tool used to dab sauce on barbecued meats. It looks just like a little cotton “mop” on the end and is used instead of a brush. Marinade: meats are put into seasoned liquids,

Rita Heikenfeld shares grilling tips, a rub and butter for grilled fare. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

which enhance flavor and tenderize. Marinades moisten surface of meat so it doesn’t dry out over hot coals. Glaze: a thin type of sauce that is usually glossy when brushed on foods, sometimes during the last five minutes of grilling, and the glaze remains glossy after cooking.

Grilled steak with garlic and thyme rub What cut to use? Flat iron is part of the chuck so it has great beefy flavor and is almost as tender as tenderloin. Originally, skirt steak was cut to be used in fajitas and

has a bit more fat than the hanger or flank. Flank works well here too. My favorites are flat iron and flank. Serve with a side of grilled thick sliced potatoes.



Brodie is battling ALL, a form of leukemia. Brodie had his wish granted to go to Yellowstone National Park to experience the great outdoors. Brodie’s mom, Sarah, commented on his wish experience, “When he got sick, our world got really small very quickly. But when Make-A-Wish came into the picture, they blew the walls off and reminded us that there are so many things out there to see and do.” There are more than 140 children in southern Ohio like Brodie waiting for their wish to come true. Participants will have the opportunity to help grant these wishes through fundraising for their walk team. To register as an individual or partner up with

CSC receives $5,000 from Santoro Foundation

The Janet A. Santoro Breast Cancer Foundation donated $5,000 to Cancer Support Community Greater CincinnatiNorthern Kentucky to help fund the non-profit’s free programs of support, education and hope for people with cancer, their loved ones, and cancer survivors. The Janet A. Santoro Breast Cancer Foundation was founded by Janet Santoro and her daughter in 1999 after Janet was diagnosed with breast cancer. The 100 percent volunteer organization raises funds for breast cancer awareness and support, hosting a charity golf outing each year in support of its mission. After nine years of fighting the disease, and more importantly, helping other people with cancer, Santoro died in 2008, leaving the

Cancer Support Community Director of Development Betty Cookendorfer (Harrison), Lou Santoro (West Chester Township), Brenda Valentine (Goshen) and CSC Executive Director Rick Bryan (Blue Ash). PROVIDED

Santoro Foundation to continue her legacy of providing support for cancer patients and their families. “Janet’s dedication to helping other people

with cancer was inspiring and it is wonderful to see her influence continue,” said Betty Cookendorfer, CSC’s director of development. “The Santoro Foundation’s fi-

nancial support over the years has been significant in helping provide free support for so many families dealing with cancer and we truly appreciate it.”
