We have moved some of your favorite features, just for a few weeks, to allow room for our high school sports fall previews. This week, you can find Father Lou Guntzelman’s column on page A7. Rita Heikenfeld’s cooking column is on page A8.

Construction is set to wrap up in time for the dedication of the new firehouse and park in north Sycamore Township. The dedication, which will be at the new Deerfield Road location at 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 22, with music from Ooh La La and the Greasers and from Tommy James and the Shondells. During the dedication, township officials will host tours for residents, who can check out the variety of amenities and cost-efficient additions to the fire station and the adjacent park. The fire station and community room, which are housed in one large building, will be powered using solar panels. Board of Trustees President Tom Weidman pushed for the solar panels and to make the building more environmentally friendly. He has worked for the building to become LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)-certified, the only fire station east of the Rocky Mountains that would have such a distinction. He said that the location of the solar panels is 98 percent efficient for sun exposure. On sunny days that produce more energy than is used, Weidman said that energy goes back to the electric grid which turns back the meter, saving money for days when the solar energy is not as strong. Weidman says that the ability to store the unused solar energy may come in the next few years, but the technology is not available yet. The solar panels cost $347,000, but the township received a grant from the Ohio Department of Development sponsored by the Department of Energy for $145,000. The township will also pay for

Also featuring The new fire station and park on Deerfield Road in northern Sycamore Township have many new amenities including solar panels and geothermal heating for the firehouse and community room and a Class A baseball diamond, four soccer fields, a walking track and playground equipment at the adjacent park. Sycamore Township Board of Trustees President Tom Weidman said the property will also be monitored by several cameras, three in the park and 13 cameras on the firehouse. Weidman said the township hopes to have all of the panels by selling the renewable energy credits. Weidman said that an energy bill was passed in 2008 that requires energy suppliers to have at least 10 percent of their energy to come from renewable sources. Many, including Duke Energy, do not meet that requirement, Weidman said. Energy companies can purchase any or all of the 72 cred-

its parks under camera surveillance. The entire park will also offer WIFI. Also, in addition to saving money on the construction, Sycamore Township received a $5,000 check from Duke Energy at a recent Board of Trustees meeting to go towards the dedication ceremony and festival budget. Money is also left over from the recent Sycamore Township festival sponsors that will be used for the ceremony. Weidman did not have an exact amount, but said that any other costs for the township would be minimal. its from Sycamore Township to meet the state requirements, which can cost $350 to $400 a credit. Weidman said the township tried to keep from using a lot of taxpayer money to fund the project. “There isn’t a place we haven’t figured out how to save,” Weidman said.

Sycamore Township is also saving money with Jeff Shamot of Neyer Properties volunteering to help the building become LEEDcertified. The process usually costs around of $100,000. Geothermal heating, which picks up the heat energy of the Earth, will also be used to keep a more consistent temperature in the building. The new station replaces the current north station on Solzman Road. The new station will have four bay areas for the trucks and more amenities and supplies that the old station was unable to accommodate. The move will be made to the new station by the end of September. The park will feature four soccer fields and a Class A baseball field with lights, crushed brick warning track, fenced in bullpens and a wireless scoreboard. A walking path, restrooms and playground equipment are also features at the park.

Plaza upgrade to cost Montgomery $615K

Fighting fire ...

Firefighters were already on the scene before the fire started in Camp Dennison Aug. 7. As part of a training exercise, firefighters from the Loveland Symmes, Sycamore Township, Sharonville and Blue Ash fire departments, all part of the Northeast Fire Collaborative, set a house on fire on Lincoln Road in Camp Dennison.

Montgomery officials expect improvements to the Neuilly-Plaisance Plaza to begin after Labor Day and be substantially completed by early December. City Council approved a resolution Aug. 5 awarding a $615,000 contract for the work to the Langenheim & Thomson Co. of Madisonville. “This will upgrade a very significant public space within the city in terms of appearance and functionality,” Montgomery City Manager Cheryl Hilvert said. “The current plaza has been in place for many years and the

The plaza at the southwest cor-

ner of Cooper and Montgomery roads is named for Montgomery's sister city, Neuilly-Plaisance in France. Planned improvements include a new “hardscape” with brick pavers, stone posts, short decorative stone walls, wrought-iron fencing, trees, shrubs and perennials and a two-tiered water feature with a fountain on the upper level and water cascading into a curved lower basin, public works director Bob Nikula said. “City Council and staff recognize that this plaza is a focal point located at the southwest intersections of the two highest-traffic volume roadways in the Heritage District,” Nikula said.

“The current plaza configuration presents significant challenges for access for those with physical handicaps and the new design includes (Americans with Disabilities Act) access directly from the public sidewalk along Cooper Road.” The project is being funded through an economic-development agreement in which the developer of the nearby Gateway area gives Montgomery money in lieu of property taxes to construct public improvements that complement the private investment. Langenheim & Thomson submitted the lower of two bids for the work. Trend Construction of Sharonville bid $647,200.

Camp Dennison home used for fire training By Amanda Hopkins ahopkins@communitypress.com

Firefighters were already on the scene before the fire started in Camp Dennison Aug. 7. As part of a training exercise, firefighters from the Loveland Symmes, Sycamore Township, Sharonville and Blue Ash fire departments, all part of the Northeast Fire Collaborative, set a house on fire on Lincoln Road in Camp Dennison. The house was acquired from the owners for the exercise because there were already plans to tear it down. “We can have real experiences and real homes ... so we can train our firefighters to react appropriately,” Loveland Symmes Fire Chief Otto Huber said.

Fire chiefs from the Northeast Fire Collaborative and other firefighters stand near the command post to oversee the training exercise. The firefighters set fires in various rooms in the house using straw or other items and a team comes in to put the fire out. Teams from each department would rotate throughout the day to give all of the firefighters training opportunities.

“It’s an example of the Northeast Fire Collaborative coming together to train (the firefighters) in standard principles and best practices.” Huber said if they were not able to acquire buildings to use for training, the departments would have to

Jones chosen to replace Schuler in Ohio senate

Sat. August 22

An Ohio Senate screening committee recommended State Rep. Shannon Jones (R-Springboro) for appointment to the Ohio Senate to fill the 7th District seat left vacant when Robert Schuler (R–Sycamore Township) died in June. Jones took the oath of office Aug. 11. The 7th District includes eastern Hamilton County and all of Warren County. “When it comes to public policy, Shannon Jones has a reputation for being a heavy lifter. She has a passion for public service and a strong sense of responsibility to do what is best for the people she represents,” Senate President Bill Harris said. “Her brand of leadership is just what we need in the Senate during extremely challenging times.” Jones has served in the Ohio House since 2007, where she quickly rose through the ranks, serving as assistant majority whip during the 127th General Assembly. She played a critical role in the development of the state energy bill last

year, fighting to keep energy costs in check for Ohio families and businesses and served as the House’s point person on Medicaid. A fiscal conservative, Jones believes Medicaid costs must be contained not only to ensure the longterm stability of the program, but also to avoid a future tax increase. In response to the Joe the Plumber scandal in which public officials accessed the records of a private citizen for political purposes, Jones sponsored and passed the new state law to ensure the private information held by state government agencies is better protected. “I am honored and humbled to have been given the opportunity to represent the people of the 7th Senate District,” Jones said. “I look forward to working with my colleagues in the weeks and months ahead on the many challenges facing Ohio and pledge my best efforts to ensure the voice of my constituents is heard at the Statehouse.” Prior to running for elec-

tive office, J o n e s Jones w o r k e d behind the scenes and on behalf of the residents of southwestern Ohio, as chief of staff for former U.S. Rep. Steve Chabot, a regional representative for then-state Treasurer Joe Deters and as a district director for former U.S. Sen. Mike DeWine. She has also been active in local politics, holding leadership positions in the Hamilton County Republican Party and on the congressional campaigns of Mike Turner and Steve Chabot. Jones has a bachelor of arts in communication from the University of Cincinnati. She and her husband, Russell, are raising their two children in Springboro. “The 7th Senate District has been very well represented over the years and I am humbled to have been selected to serve,” Jones said. “I pledge to be a tireless advocate for the families of Hamilton and Warren counties and to fight every day to ensure a brighter future for all Ohioans.”

Third building planned for Kenwood Crossing By Amanda Hopkins ahopkins@communitypress.com

Another Neyer Properties building may be going up in Sycamore Township. In an open house for residents, representatives from Neyer Properties presented plans for a third office building in Kenwood Crossing on Pine Road off of East Galbraith Road. The original plan for the site presented in 2003 when the second building was built called for a threestory office building. The new plan for the third building has been changed to two stories. The property was rezoned in 2003 as office space for the three-story building, but will need to be adjusted to accomodate the new plan. Ann Farris, a resident of Monroe Drive adjacent to the proposed building, said that in the original plan, Neyer Properties had sent her a letter saying they would buy her house and tear it down to make more room for the planned office building. She said that she has heard nothing else about a buyout with the new plan. “I would like them to buy me out before I would move out,” said Farris. “If they buy me out, they can build whatever they want.” She said as a resident she does not like the idea of the new building but will not oppose the rezoning and building process. The building will be

Coleman said it was a good way to meet other interns and experience planning and team building. He was involved in gathering the interns and helping to organize the event. The interns were busy doing everything from

clearing brush and weeds in front of the house to planting flowers. “They’re all so young,� Huenefeld said. “They’re very enthusiastic. They really have done a lot.� Huenefeld said someone suggested calling Duke to ask for help clearing the outside of the house. “We always are looking for help,� Huenefeld said. “We really appreciate it.� She said the project is long-term, but they hope to have some things ready in

As music critic John Rockwell commented, “Who knew? All those philosophers and scientists and theoreticians who believed in the ancient Music of the Spheres were on to something. There is such a music, and it’s the note B-flat.” Rockwell refers to the fact that in 2003 astronomers using the Hubble telescope registered a “cosmic hum” emanating from black holes with “a frequency equivalent to a Bflat which in their instruments calculated to be 57 tones below middle C.” Among musicologists, this news from outer space has sparked an Internet quest for the emotional and

One answer is brute physical strength. Now, consider the baseball cap. Worn in the traditional style it offer protection against the sun and also the gaze of aggressive competitors. By turning the cap around, the male is signaling that he doesn’t need this protection: he is tough enough to face the elements and the gaze of any who might threaten him. Second, inverting the cap is a gesture of non-conformity. Primates live in highly ordered social structures. Playing by the rules is considered essential. Turning

How to pickle that peck of peppers COURTESY RITA HEIKENFELD

Nell Wilson’s pickled peppers recipe.

When I go out to the garden to pick peppers, I think of Nell Wilson, along with my sisters Sonia Ervin, Christine Lawson and Edith Hartwell. Nell is Ron Wilson’s mom. Ron is our gardening columnist and I met Nell years ago when I was a guest on Ron’s radio show. Nell’s pickled pepper recipe is one of the best. Sonia, Christine and Edith were the first of my sisters

to learn to make pickled peppers from my mom. Mom made big batches of everything. Nell’s version is for smaller batches, which are more doable for most of you. Even if you’ve never canned, I hope you try a batch. You’ll be glad you did when you compare the price of pickled peppers with home canned. The bonus is they make great gifts from the kitchen,

and you know exactly what’s in them.

Mourning the loss of a friend we never met Several years ago, my wife, Lee, and I were traveling in New Zealand. She accidently lost a prescription she had been carrying. And thus begins an interesting tale. A local gentleman found it and sent it to her physician with his return address. On our arrival at home we got a call from the physician asking if she knew a Mr. Fred Batty in New Zealand. She was not aware she had lost the prescription, but we were given Mr. Batty’s name and address. His kindness and interest required a thank you note. This started an irregular correspondence. We have to confess that we are not the best at writing letters, but, once or twice a year we exchanged letters. He wrote about his family and his interests. We

reciprocated. Though he was much older than us, we had a lot in common. We have learned that all of humanity has far more in Edward Levy common than Community the petty differPress guest ences that are inflated out of columnist jealousy or ignorance.

Sycamore Township is trying to revitalize its Block Watch program. Do you think such program are effective?

What are your favorite and least favorite memories from your school days? “One of my favorite memories from school was of our plane geometry class. The teacher was a soft-spoken, patient nun and she made learning the subject really fun. “Least favorite memory would have to be the day when two of my classmates conspired to go to another classroom before school started and bring back a guy with whom I had an argument the previous day. “I was totally surprised when I looked up from my desk and saw them standing there. As I was standing up, he sucker punched me.” B.B. “Going back to school in the fall when I was a child meant new shoes and school supplies that included new crayons and pencils.

informing us of his death. What is unusual is that we had become enough of a friend that we were included in the sad news. We will be extending our condolences to his exceptionally fine family. We also wish to share some of the comments from his personal farewell to his family and friends. What one will quickly learn is that he enjoyed his family and life in general. He lived life and love to the fullest. One of the best lessons one will gather from his farewell is that he treated the end of his life not as a tragedy, but an adventure. What we can all learn from this is that we all have a determined number of days. When we waste one, it is lost forever. An opportunity to do some

good for someone has been lost. Then the personal satisfaction of doing random acts of kindness is lost to you and not able to brighten the day of another person. He died a few months short of his 101st birthday. What follows are some excerpts from his personal celebration of his life. “Hello and welcome to this celebration of my life. – Eunice and I met on a blind date!! God, what a woman! She never got rid of me from that day forward. – I started work with a wheelwright at 14 years old, then I moved to be a ‘go-for’ with a small hardware company. “Later to become E.W. Sinton Ltd. I was one of the founders with Ted Sinton. Would you believe I stayed on that job for all of my working life doing various

jobs, but involving all of the hardware aspect including importing and wholesaling. Retiring after 63 years. – I have seen many changes over the last 100 years, from horse and cart to the modern motor car, early radio to the Internet and e mail, but the basic values of life remain the same – look after and love one another and the blessing of life will be yours. Enough, enough. I am sure there are others here today who will add some ditties to this and please feel free to do so. This is a celebration of my life, not a funeral.” To this we can only add our personal farewell for a life well spent. Our best wishes to Fred’s family. They retain the memory of a truly remarkable man. Edward Levy is a longtime resident of Montgomery and a former college instructor.

The season for reminiscing Recent posts and response from Jamie Green’s Moments in Montgomery blog at Cincinnati.com/Montgomery

Where did the summer go? “When I think of summer, I think of long, hot, lazy days, drinking lemonade, and doing fun things with the family that we usually don’t have time to do during the school year. Then, I woke up on Monday with the realization that it was August and I thought ‘Where did the summer go?’ This year was definitely not lazy. It was definitely not hot. And, this summer seemed to fly by faster than usual. “My impression of a typical Montgomery family’s summer begins with cookouts with friends

on backyard patios and the kids playing with neighborhood friends while attending various types of camps, maybe joining a local swim team. Add into this, the occasional out-of-town family and friends stopping by for a visit or maybe you go out of town to visit them. Then, of course, many families take a family vacation. Some families take several weeks, some are only a few days, some families go far away while others travel a short distance or decide to visit local attractions. Last, by not least, many families attend local festivals like Bastille Day, 4th of July parade, concerts, and fireworks. “In July, we did a staycation with a twist. We drove to our friend’s house near New York City

You can help cut smog It thrives during summer. You can barely see it coming, but at its worst it has been known to kill. It is particularly dangerous for children, the elderly and people with respiratory problems, but it does not discriminate – affecting every person it comes into contact with. What is this silent pollutant? Smog. The word itself comes from a combination of smoke and fog, two things that have a similar look to smog’s hazy appearance. However, the white vapor that makes up smog is actually a form of air pollution. “Smog is a very serious issue in our region, negatively affecting the health of our residents and the environment we live in,” said Steve Pendery, president of the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments and Campbell County executive judge. “It’s a concern that should be on the minds of everyone in the area - especially during this time of year.” Smog can be caused by a variety of chemical reactions, but in the Greater Cincinnati area the main component is ground-level ozone. This type of ozone is the very same gas that is found miles above earth’s surface in the ozone layer, but when ozone is close to the ground it is labeled as groundlevel ozone or “bad” ozone.

Defense brings experience to Sycamore By Katie Hull

A hint of uncertainty is in store for the Sycamore Aviator’s offensive line this upcoming season. The Aviators were 8-2 last year, finishing fourth in the Greater Miami Conference. “We’ve got quite a few returning starters,� said head coach Scott Dattilo. Those players include seniors Paul Yanow (LB), Tim Andrews (DE), Tyler Dowdall (OLB), Alex Segal (LB), Jordan Kolb, who has moved from offensive to defensive line, and junior Darius Hillary (DB). The only returning player for the offensive line is senior Austin Baas, tight end for the Aviators. “I think our strengths are our defense, we’re returning a lot of guys that played last year,� said Dattilo. “I think

Player of the Year. He appears primed for another big season, especially since his top target, senior Andrew Perkins, returns at wide receiver. Perkins, a first-team all-state performer, led the team in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns last season. “We return the majority of our skill position players from last year’s team,� head coach Eric Taylor said. The Eagles’ defense, which allowed nine points or fewer six times last year, figures to be stout yet again, as the team’s top tacklers – seniors Doyen Harris and Jake Schomaker – are both back at linebacker. The special teams, with senior all-state kicker Joe Reifenberg and senior allstate punter John Lloyd, may be the best in Ohio. “Our special teams will be very strong,� said Taylor, who led his team to a Miami Valley Conference championship last year with a 7-0 record in league play.

Moeller eyes GCL, state titles in 2009 By Mark Chalifoux

mchalifoux@communitypress.com

The 2008 Moeller Crusaders had a lot of questions heading into the first season under new head coach John Rodenberg. The 2009 Crusaders have considerably fewer as Moeller returns a considerable amount of Division-I caliber talent and boasts a strong senior class, making the Crusaders one of the top teams in the city.

Rush Galvin “We’ve worked awfully hard in the weight room and the seniors have been great leaders in the winter and summer. With all the returning starters, we hope to have a lot of success,”

Rodenberg said. The offense should be balanced and will be led by Notre Dame-bound Andrew Hendrix. Hendrix threw for 1,609 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2008. Running backs Richie Dyer and Jeff Aubin combine to provide a talented running game for the Crusaders as the duo led the Moeller ground attack in 2008. The offensive line has a pair of strong standouts in Division I collegiate prospects Jeff Tanner and Ali Kassem. Ball State-bound tight end David Schneider should be a big target in the passing game as Schneider led the Crusaders in receiving touchdowns in 2008. Wideout Trent Williford is another receiver with big play capabilities. On defense, the Crusaders will be led by a strong front seven. The defensive line is led by two Division I collegiate prospects, senior Marcus Rush and junior Jessie Hays. The linebackers for Moeller are led by another Division I collegiate prospect, Nick Galvin. Kendall Walker and Garret Mize are two more big-play linebackers for the Crusaders. Moeller also returns cornerback Ethan McAlpine, who was one of the leaders in interceptions in the GCL in 2008. The schedule will be tough again for Moeller in 2009. “People don’t call us ot play unless they are going to be pretty good,” Rodenberg said. “Our feeling is once we get to the playoffs, we are battle-tested.” Moeller has tough games

Watch out for them.”

Rodenberg said the 2009 Crusaders will be bigger, especially in the trenches and that the year of experience with the players has helped everyone get used to his system. “Everyone knows where they fall in and where to go,” he said. “I’ve been real pleased with how things have worked out.” Rodenberg said the program puts a lot of pressure on itself to contend for a

Bombers look to bounce back By Tony Meale

tmeale@communitypress.com

The Bombers have been there before – and now they want to get back. In December 2007, the St. Xavier High School football team capped its second undefeated season in three years, won a state title and was widely considered one of the top teams in the country. In October 2008, the Bombers lost three of their last four regular season games – all by three points – and finished 4-6 and missed the playoffs. “(Our players) want to forget about last year,” head coach Steve Specht said.

MICHAEL E. KEATING/STAFF

St. Xavier High School seniors Luke Massa, left, and Matt James, right, hope to lead the Bombers back to state in 2009.

Leading the renaissance will be senior quarterback Luke Massa, who suffered a broken collarbone at Louisville Trinity last September and was lost for the season. Providing protection up front is Matt James (6-8, 280), who is considered one of the top offensive lineman in the nation and is ranked the fourth-best overall player in the 2010 class by Ohio High Magazine. “(Massa and James) bring experience,” Specht said. “They both started on our ‘07 state team, and they understand the expectations of the program.” Other returning senior starters include Nick Weston (DB), Will Carroll (DB) and Nigel Muhammed (DL). St. X also hopes to get production from juniors Daniel Braswell (RB) and Steven Daniels (FB/LB), as well as seniors Jeff Kraemer (WR) and Alex Longi (WR/TE). “We’re still trying to fit the pieces of the puzzle,” Specht said. As has become the custom, the Bombers face a daunting schedule this season; in addition to their regular GCL foes, St. X will square off against Indianapolis Cathedral, Lakewood St. Edward and Cleveland St. Ignatius. With such a tough weekto-week schedule, Specht remains focused on the big picture. “Our goal never changes

– we want to get better,” he said. “I believe when you’re coaching kids, the goal should always be to get better. We’re trying to go 1-0 every week.” The Bombers will try to go 1-0 in their seasonopening showdown with Colerain at Nippert Stadium on Aug. 28. St. X came up

short in that same setting last year, 13-8. “Colerain is one of the best teams in the state,” Specht said. “I think we’re going to go in and compete our tails off. Win, lose or draw, (our fans) will be proud of us.”

Dietz brothers set to lead CCD By Anthony Amorini

aamorini@communitypress.com

All things offense will once again revolve around the brothers Dietz for the Cincinnati Country Day Indians. Senior running back Max Dietz is the “focal point” of the Indians’ offense after taking Division VI All State honors in 2008, head Dunn coach Tim Dunn said. Max received handoffs, pitches and passes from his older brother Alex Dietz, a 2009 graduate, last fall. Sophomore Jake Dietz takes over at quarterback for Alex and gives Max yet another sibling delivering the ball. “We think our skill guys are good enough to make us a threat, but Alex was very effective,” Dunn said of shifting to a sophomore Dietz at quarterback rather than a senior. “We hope we can pass a little to keep some balance, but we’ll see how it goes with a sophomore quarterback.” Judging from Alex’s and Max’s successes in 2008, Dunn hopes Jake hits the ground running, he said. Max led CCD with 1,163 yards rushing and 21 touchdowns last fall. He also accounted for 627 yards receiving. Alex threw for almost 1,200 yards and rushed for more than 400 yards as a senior. Senior running back Lawrence Ervin is also a returning starter for the Indians. Ervin scored 36 points for the Indians as a junior. On the offensive line, seniors Matt Lesser and Clint Thomas are the only players returning for Dunn. “We don’t have a lot of size on the line and they are young,” Dunn said. “We will be depending a lot on the young guys on the line.” Defensively, Ervin returns to the Indians’ secondary after tallying 100 tackles including 75 unassisted in 2008. Junior inside linebacker Wyatt Tiffany finished with 74 tackles last fall and returns to anchor the Indians’ defense alongside Ervin, Dunn said. Lesser and Thomas, both defensive linemen, finished

and colliding with another player last year, Shaun A., a junior small forward from Miami University-Hamilton knew exactly what had happened and who to call. “I tore my right ACL in high school and our team athletic trainer recommended Dr. Marc Galloway at Cincinnati SportsMedicine and Orthopaedic Center,” says Shaun. “That surgery made my knee stronger than ever. So when I heard the same “pop” in my other knee I knew what to do.” “It is not uncommon for a patient to suffer an ACL tear in the opposite knee,” remarks Marc Galloway, M.D. sports orthopaedic surgeon at CSMOC. “This is a phenomenon we are hoping to address by developing specific prevention programs. The good news is Shaun responded as well to his second procedure as his first and the strong dedication he showed in both recoveries can be seen on the court this season.” “Dr. Galloway and the rehab team helped me focus on my goals and to reach them. My left knee is actually stronger now after the surgery. Both knees are feeling great and the quad and jumping exercises they had me do made my jumping better. I’m looking forward to playing my senior year.”

A parent’s worst nightmare is seeing their child in

anguish for any reason. For Debbie K. of Pennsylvania, it was watching her daughter, Bethany face the harsh reality that her collegiate soccer career was over, one year too soon. A three-time American Mideast Conference Player of the Year, Bethany was sidelined due to excruciating knee pain and failed surgeries. Call it coincidence or call it fate, Bethany’s aunt in Los Angeles, California also suffered knee pain and researched Dr. Frank Noyes’ name from the internet and recommended him to her niece. Dr. Noyes discovered a rare, overlooked, complication with Bethany’s prior meniscus repair procedures and was able to restore her knee and relieve her unrelenting pain. “Bethany had multiple complex knee injuries that are rare to see and require a special level of training and expertise found only in an orthopaedic center of excellence,” says Frank R. Noyes, M.D., Director, CSMOC. “Our patient focused treatment included proven clinical, surgical and rehabilitation options. This care, combined with Bethany’s determination and motivation, produced a remarkable outcome.” How did Bethany do following Dr. Noyes’ surgery? She capped her career at Houghton College with a 4th Player of the Year honor and was the leading all-time scorer among other titles. “It was a true miracle what he was able to do for her,” says Debbie K. “For someone who thought her career had ended too soon, it was a miraculous ending for my daughter.”

Indian Hill returns talent but has holes By Mark Chalifoux

mchalifoux@communitypress.com

The most important part of Indian Hill High School’s football season is the nonconference slate. The first three games of the season, against McNicholas, Valley View Theisen and Turpin high schools, will more than likely decide the Braves’ postseason fate. Indian Hill lost two of their first three in 2008 and missed the playoffs. “A season can be made in those first three weeks,”

new head coach Mike Theisen said. “We use last season as a motivating tool. Two of those first three games have to be victories for us.” The Braves have an extremely athletic squad in 2009 but have some big holes to fill in the trenches. Indian Hill graduated all but one starting lineman from 2008. “We have some extremely talented skill players that are back and we think we have some young kids that will step up on the line,” Theisen said. Among the returning skill players is running back Jacob Bauer. Bauer ran for 366 yards and six touch-

Bauer had another 230 yards receiving and missed five games due to injury. Bauer is one of the top weapons for the Braves’ offense in 2009. “He had an excellent winter and summer and is looking extremely good,” Theisen said. “He’s a 1,500yard rusher if he stays healthy.” The difficult job of replacing three-year quarterback Bo Cordell, who threw for almost 3,000 yards in 2008, belongs to Sam Hendricks. Hendricks is a gifted athlete who was second on the team in receiving in 2008. “He’s awfully talented and can throw well and can run the ball,” Theisen said. “He’s an extremely talented runner and we will be more run oriented than pass oriented this year.” The team also returns athletic wideout Adam Bell and a tall threat in receiver Kevin Krefting. The defense will be young for the Braves and will have to get up to speed quickly to be a factor in the team’s non-conference games. Theisen said the CHL should be much improved in 2009 as well. “Madeira is better, Mariemont is better and Wyoming will be an excellent football team,” he said.

but they will seem to be in a rebuilding mode for the 2009 season. L e a c h said he Leach believes if the first-year players step up early, it could be a successful season. “We’ll be filling a lot of holes this year after graduating seniors at key positions,” the third-year coach said. Key returning players on offense are senior quarterback Spencer Ward, senior lineman A.J. Hood, senior tight end Kyle Budde and wide receivers senior Bryan Shelby and junior Jay McCants. Key returnees on defense are seniors defensive lineman Rakeem Chandler and defensive back Josh West. “We have the talent to put some points on the scoreboard, but we’ll be put to the test early trying to stop our opponents, “ Leach said. The Vikings were 5-5 overall and 4-3 in the

A Hebrew school your child will love Imagine a Hebrew School where children don’t want to miss a day. Where they enter with a smile and leave humming a Hebrew song. A school where the halls are filled with the sounds of lively discussion, singing, laughter and prayer. Imagine a place where children feel the warmth and spirit of Judaism. Imagine a Hebrew School that is also incredibly affordable. Welcome to Chabad Hebrew School, a place that instills Jewish pride and creates spiritual connections that last a lifetime, and also doesn’t break the bank. The friendly and inclusive policy means every Jewish child is welcome, regardless of affiliation, religious observance, prior knowledge or ability to pay. Chabad Hebrew School requires no membership fees or dues, only an affordable tuition for the year. With early bird discounts, additional child discounts, and refer a friend discounts, this price comes down even more. And this year the school has introduced a new half-price policy for students ages 3-5. “This is our second year here at Chabad Hebrew School, and it is the second year I have gone without my child saying, ‘Do we have to go, it’s boring, just one time can I skip,’� said

share their own love and

passion for Jewish life, so that students don’t just love to learn about Judaism – they learn to love Judaism. Hebrew Reading has become popular part of the day at CHS. The Hebrew reading curriculum is based on the internationally acclaimed Aleph Champ Reading Program, a motivational system that been proven to be the most effective method of teaching Hebrew reading and writing to children. Said one CHS parent, “The Aleph Champ program is fabulous! Its ability to let my daughter learn at her own pace – however fast or slow that may be in a given week – is exactly the type of learning environment she

needs. Her experience at CHS has been invaluable, and she will carry those benefits with her for the rest of her life.� “Our goal extends beyond the basic skills and knowledge students need in preparation for their Bar or Bat Mitzvahs,� said Rabbi Berel Cohen, principal, “We create a solid foundation of love for Jewish living and learning that will serve our students for the rest of their lives. And not only is it affordable, it’s one of the safest investments you can make in today’s economy.� To register your child or for more information, contact Rabbi Berel Cohen at 793-5200 or RabbiCohen@ChabadBA.com.

The cafeteria provides a relaxing place to take a break.

Visitors take a break in the cafe.

Friends and neighbors enjoyed dinner outdoors at the dedication.

Young visitors are enthralled by a magic act.

The expanded two-story fitness center provides enough room for everyone.

The rec center includes a family cafe area.

Blue Ash Recreation Center formally dedicated If you weren’t there, in spite of the inclement weather, you missed a great day of fun and entertainment at Blue Ash’s newly renovated and expanded Recreation Center! Activities and demos took place all day, beginning with the formal ribbon cutting. Multitudes of demonstrations, open climb at the climbing wall, family fun activities, pool games and concerts highlighted the day’s activities. Blue Ash has been working towards

the completion of this exciting project since late 2007, when Phase I (the new gym addition) construction began. Construction has continued since, resulting in an exciting renovation and expansion with examples of improvements including: • new gymnasium; • greatly expanded two-story fitness center, including a 1/10 mile indoor running track; • new family café area;

• new family gameroom; • whirlpool and saunas; • new locker rooms, including family changing areas; • climbing wall. This project was financed by the City of Blue Ash and made possible due to voters’ approval of Issue 15 in November 2006. ALL PHOTOS COURTESY CITY OF BLUE ASH

Children wait their turn at an inflatable obstacle course.

Visit a “medieval castle” on a high hilltop on 115 secluded and forested acres of the most beautiful area of Southeast Ohiothe Hocking Hills! Owners Sue & Jim Maxwell are creating the most unusual guest experience of stepping back 800 years in a reconstruction of a “12th century Norman castle.” The Maxwells have traveled throughout England & Scotland & have always loved castles & the medieval era. Although the building is new, the couple has been collecting architectural antiques for several years. Each guest room or suite has a stained glass window, usually in the bedroom, a Victorian fireplace mantel with a gas log unit, antique light fixtures and some have beautiful old doors. The wood mouldings around the door & windows & the 5 stairways are inspired by centuries old motifs from Great Britain’s stately homes & castles. Most rooms also have a French door with a balcony, private deck overlooking the forest. There are also “medieval” themed cottages with fireplaces and whirlpools. Ravenwood has
