BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Montgomery residents want group home out Our Family Home wants to open first SW Ohio site on Bramblewood Circle By Jason Hoffman jhoffman@communitypress.com

MONTGOMERY — A Columbus-based business bought a home on Bramblewood Circle in Montgomery, causing concern among residents and prompting city officials to seek a court ruling. Our Family Home, a residen-

tial-care company with two locations in Worthington, Ohio, and one in New Albany, Ohio, that cares for Alzheimer’s disease and dementia patients, requested to house up to five of its patients in Montgomery, prompting the city to file a law suit with Hamilton County requesting a ruling. “Our Family Home believes they have the right by state and federal law to operate the home in the city,” according to a Montgomery press release. “The city classifies the homes as a conditionally permitted use requiring planning commission and city council approval.”

The release also said neither the city, nor its council, approved the use. Residents that live within 300 feet of the home at 10684 Bramblewood Circle were notified via letter from the city that OFH purchased the land June 27 and intended to operate a care facility. Montgomery residents are not happy with the additional traffic and parking issues they believe the home will create and say it shouldn’t be allowed to operate as planned. “We think this should not be here because it’s a commercial See HOME, Page A2

Kids, parents dig deep into ‘fresh air’ classes at Meade House Horticultural camp brings them out By Leah Fightmaster lfightmaster@communitypress.com

During the summer when school is out, parents look for ways to keep their kids thinking. A lot of caretakers search for ways to get kids off the couch and out of the house as well. The Cincinnati Horticulture Society combines both in its Fresh Air School. For seven weeks during the summer months, horticulture manager Julie Singer and volunteers organize activities that kids and adults can do together that include cooking, gardening and crafting. To help with that, the school See FRESH, Page A2

A local bike-friendly coalition is considering a potential funding source to create plans to implement wellness and safety plans and put up signs. The Connecting Active Communities Coalition could receive a grant from WeTHRIVE!, a county-wide initiative through the public health department in Hamilton County to promote healthy lifestyles. The group approached the coalition with the potential for funding, provided it completes the requirements for it – communities perform an evaluation on their area and then form WeTHRIVE! teams, representative Jaime Love said. With those evaluations, municipalities can create strategic plans to address health issues and create sustainable improvements. In the past, WeTHRIVE! has funded both the creation of the plans and their implementation, but Love said the group can only fund the planning portion. The coalition could receive up to $10,000 for the project in funding, which is dependent upon how many municipalities participate. Some of that funding, if there is any left after the planning stage, could be used for signs or whatever the plans call for, Love said. So far, the coalition voted on a resolution to show support for the project, but each community will have to finish

its evaluation by Oct. 17 to qualify for funding. In addition, each community’s council will have to approve the wellness resolution, with changes made if they desire, to recognize the plan. WeTHRIVE! also suggested that the coalition’s members take training to become ambassadors, which Love said helps them become more familiar with the group. Nern Ostendorf, executive director for Queen City Bike, suggested that coalition members take that ambassador training because it helps with the way people look at making communities healthier. “It shapes the way you think,” she said. “And it makes a difference without changing overnight.” If money is left after the planning stage, the coalition wants to use the rest to buy signs that alert drivers to bicyclists on the road. Coalition coordinator Michele Gottschlich said that although its a lot of work for communities who want to participate, she felt the funding for plans could be very helpful to the coalition and its members. “This looks like a gem of an opportunity,” she said. The Connecting Active Communities Coalition plans to meet again Wednesday, Sept. 4, at the Evendale Recreation Center to discuss more about the WeTHRIVE! funding project.

I just think it is improper for the area.” Lisa Skinner who lives behind the home on Hollywood Circle said she is leery of OFH’s motives, especially if it charges residents as much as she was told. “I do think a grouphome concept is a good idea,” she said. “If they are so worried about taking care of the elderly, they wouldn’t be charging $7,000 a month.” Evan Dubro, owner of OFH, declined to comment on the matter.

Construction continues in Kenwood By Leah Fightmaster lfightmaster@communitypress.com

There’s a lot of activity in Kenwood, and it’s not just at Kenwood Towne Centre. Construction for a restaurant and retail space on the corner of Montgomery and Hosbrook roads is already in progress. Cooper’s Hawk, a restaurant and winery, is expected to be finished in the next few months and will potentially open in December. Work on the retail space, which will be about 16,000 square feet, should begin during the next few months as well, but likely won’t open until next spring, said Greg Bickford, planning and zoning director/ assistant township administrator for Sycamore Township. He added that some tenants for that space could be a casual fastfood restaurant and possibly a salon or spa. JR Anderson, vice president of development for Jeffrey R. Anderson Real Estate, said that the space is about 50 percent leased and should be ready for tenants by the end of the year. Anderson wouldn’t comment on the specific companies that are signed on to occupy that space. Plans for a hotel on Ronald Reagan Drive near the Federal Bureau of Investigation building are still in the works, but Bickford said construction could start sometime this fall. He added that the developer, Rolling Hills Hospitality, is working on which hotel brand will run the hotel, but that one hasn’t agreed yet. The hotel plans show a small bar,

eating space, pool, meeting space, fitness center, standard rooms and suites. “It will be a basic traveler’s hotel,” he said. Bickford said it will be comparable to a Marriott, and he hopes it will be finished during the summer of 2015. The largest project, Kenwood Collection, is still in the process of cleaning out the old fireproofing and HVAC work that the former owner installed before the current owner, Phillips Edison, bought it. The outside will probably start to see some attention this winter or early next year, finishing up this time next year, Bickford said. The 600,000 total square-foot structure, which stood untouched for months until Phillips Edison bought it several months ago, is signing both retail and office tenants. Bickford said there are several tenants committed to space in the building, including insurance company Neace Lukens, which will lease about 32,000 square feet in the office portion. The seven-story office space will sit atop the several stories of retail space, which will also include a nearly completed 2,400-square foot parking garage. Jeffrey R. Anderson is also in charge of leasing the retail space for this project,

Eighth-graders leave lasting impression By Forrest Sellers fsellers@communitypress.com

Some Indian Hill Middle School eighth-graders left their mark in paint. They were chosen to paint a mural that encompassed school life in a hallway next to the administrative office. The students were selected by art teachers at the school based on their artistic talent. “I really like that we’re getting an opportunity to paint,” said eighth-grader Sara Zandvakili, of Indian Hill. Zandvakili and others started work on the mural at the beginning of the school year and worked on it when they have time during study hall. Sohini Pas, of Kenwood, said they worked hard to finish the mural before the end of the school year and before they all head to the high school. “We’re proud of what we’ve done,” said Mary Kate Jutze, of Kenwood. Pas said the mural depicts school spirit and different aspects of the school. Images include musical instruments, textbooks and sports. The eighth-graders painted the mural based on an image provided by Indian Hill High School sophomore Abigail

SVF students get hands-on news reporting lessons By Leah Fightmaster lfightmaster@communitypress.com

St. Vincent Ferrer students are learning how news works. Sixth- through eighth-graders at the Kenwood school take turns informing their classmates of their school’s news on TV four days a week. In computer teacher Amy Luebbering’s class, students write scripts for their broadcast, which include weather, lunches, class field trips, activities at St. Vincent Ferrer, a special report and other topics. Then, when it’s their turn, those students break off into groups and decide who will anchor the broadcast, run the camera, control the computer with the script and other duties that go into recording their show. Their announcements are part of WSVF, what the school calls its TV channel, which Principal Doug Alpiger

said started about three years ago. While the students treat it as an assignment, Luebbering said she encourages them to be themselves. Eighth-grader Kelly Frank said they sometimes act silly or try to be funny to make it entertaining, but they still try to be informative. Whether a student wants to be in front of the camera or work behind-the-scenes, all students in those grades get a chance to work on the announcements. Eighth-grader Caleigh Sambrookes said that although they run through the script before and it’s pre-recorded,

sometimes they’re put on the spot and they just learn to improvise, which Leah Cleveland said can give some students the confidence they need to be in front of the camera. Several students said that if they’re on TV as the anchors or reporters, they either just don’t watch themselves or have learned to laugh along with the broadcast. Although they didn’t know if broadcast news, or reporting in general, was in their professional future, students said that it gives them a background in it, and at least a little boost of confidence. “It always gives us the possibility to do it,” Frank said. “Even if you don’t want (to be a reporter), you have a background in something now.” Want more updates for Sycamore Township?

FINNEYTOWN — St. Xavier High School senior Jake Grabowski said his best memory of high school is winning the state championship in cross country this season. “It was really exciting because that’s been our goal four years,” the 18-year-old Anderson Township resident. “A month later we got to run at Nike Cross Nationals where we placed ninth. Those experiences were a lot of fun.” Grabowski was a speaker during the St. Xavier graduation, at the Cintas Center at Xavier University June 5. His friend Daniel Gallegos, 18, said that it was a different sport that was the highlight of his high school career. “Freshman year, we beat Moeller in soccer. We came back after losing to Elder and tying La Salle and we won the (conference tournament) in a buzzer beater against Moeller. We were down by two at the half,” the Indian Hill resident said. “Getting involved in sports in high school made a difference because all of my friends played sports with me.” For Tom Tappel, 18, it was more than extracurricular activities that impacted his high school career. “The staff at St. Xavier are really willing to reach out to students and talk to them and

impact their lives in any way they can,” he said. One thing he said he was glad he participated in was a mission trip to South Dakota. “It was really cool to see a different side of the world and be able to help kids,” the Montgomery resident said. “Something I regret was doing too many things and not being able to give them what they deserve. If I could start over, I would try harder earlier.” Gallegos agreed saying that he would have done things differently if he could start high school over again. “I would get involved in more community service projects and mission trips,” he said. For Grabowski, he would only tweak one thing. “I would do it all the same but two times slower,” he said. In the fall the three will embark on their college careers. Grabowski is going to the University of Notre Dame but has not declared a major. Both study engineering, Gallegos at Stanford University and Tappel at the University of Dayton. Before they head out, Grabowski will impart words of wisdom to his fellow graduates. “St. Xavier has made an impact on all of us and we’ve made an impact on St. Xavier,” he said. “It is important that we continue to have the same impact on the community as we did on St. X.”

Preserve summer taste by roasting tomatoes

As I’ve mentioned before, I know when a recipe hits a chord with readers by the amount of response it generates long after it’s published. This is particularly true of seasonal recipes, like roasted tomatoes. This recipe is slightly different from one I shared last year. Tomatoes are in Rita season right now Heikenfeld and the homeRITA’S KITCHEN grown/best are abundant at farmers’ markets. As for me, my tomatoes are the best I’ve ever grown and since most of them are the indeterminate type, they keep bearing all season long. I’m not even begrudging the groundhogs eating their share, there’s that many! When I do find veggies and fruit that have been bitten into by Mother Nature’s clan, I just cut them up and feed them to my girls (my chickens). They make a quick meal of them, Tomatoes are full of lycopene, which is good for our hearts, men’s prostates and our immune system. Plus the yellow and orange tomatoes have just as much nutrition as their red counterparts.

Roasted regular-size tomatoes with herbs (or not) Preheat oven to 400-425 degrees. Cut tomatoes in half. Lay either cut side up or down (I laid mine cut side down but next time will lay them cut side up since I think that will keep more of the tomato flavor in). Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle on any herbs you like – basil, thyme, rosemary all work well. But be sure and

chop them up fine. I also like to add salt and pepper. Roast until skins start to look spotty if you are roasting skin side up. Otherwise, roast until tomatoes look wrinkled and are soft. Let cool and, if you like, remove skins. The first time I made them I didn’t remove the skins, but when I used them in cooked dishes they were a little tough. My suggestion is to remove them or put them in the blender or food processor and the skins will process small enough. You will wind up with more of a puree if you put them through the blender or food processor, but the bonus is you get the nutritious benefits of the skin. Freeze in desired quantities.

Roasted cherry tomatoes with herbs and garlic This is nice since everything is mixed in a boil and then just poured onto a sprayed pan to roast. Delicious as a side dish and, if you want to freeze them, you can either leave the skins on (they may be a bit tough) or puree them as directed above. Now you can also roast these plain, with just a sprinkling of salt and pepper and oil. Preheat oven to 400-425 degrees. For every pint of cherry or grape tomatoes, add a teaspoon of minced garlic, a drizzle of olive oil to coat nicely, and salt and pepper. Just mix this up in a bowl. If you have any herbs, again like basil, thyme or rosemary, chop up fine and add to taste. Pour

Cook potatoes with skin on: cover with cold water and a dash of salt. Bring to boil, reduce heat, cover and cook just until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and cool so that you can cut them into thick slices. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Put slices in single layer on sprayed baking sheets. Sprinkle each with the dressing mix, jalapeños, and the cheeses. Bake uncovered for 8-10 minutes or until cheese melts. Dollop with sour cream and onions or chives.

Obamacare proving unworkable “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it.” Those were the words of thenSpeaker Nancy Pelosi three years ago, describing the passage of President Obama’s health care law. Unfortunately for the American people, we are finally finding out what is actually in Obamacare. Unworkable mandates have proven too much for even the Obama administration to enforce along the original timeline. Conveniently, over the 4th of July week, the Obama administration announced in a quiet blog post on an obscure government webpage that the employer mandate is delayed a year. This mandate requires employers with 50 or more employees to provide employees with

governmentapproved health care or receive a fine. While good news for the moment, this delay is merely Brad a “stay of exeWenstrup cution” for our COMMUNITY PRESS already strugGUEST COLUMNIST gling economy. A one-year delay does not help anyone in the long term, neither employer nor employee. Employees will either be laid off or have their hours reduced now, or in a year. Employers will either spend millions of dollars and man hours complying with regulations now, or in a year. I have heard from many small businesses and local

governments in Ohio about the uncertainty surrounding the requirements and enforcement that Obamacare demands of them. Every employer is trying to navigate the complex maze of new government requirements and regulations. They have already started working to meet the mandate, and now are stuck in limbo as the executive branch tries to figure out which parts of the law they will enforce, and when. The unilateral decision to delay certain provisions undermines the very rule of law. If President Obama can pick and choose what he wants to enforce within Obamacare, what prevents him from doing the same with other legislation? While this administration has determined that its signa-

CH@TROOM Aug. 14 question Should U.S. lawmakers and their staffs continue to receive a federal contribution toward the health insurance that they must purchase through soon-to-open exchanges created by President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law to prevent the largely unintended loss of healthcare benefits for 535 members of the Senate and House of Representatives and thousands of Capitol Hill staff. Why or why not?

“Yes. Everyone scheduled to receive a contribution from employers should still receive that contribution, no matter for whom they work. “If the conservatives and Obama-haters would just give it a chance they'd see all the good that the Affordable Care Act can accomplish instead of trying to repeal it 40 more times in Congress. “It's meant to help the poor and uninsured just like the New Deal back 70-odd years ago during the Great Depression." TRog

“Although it would be nice if making lawmakers pay for their own health care would bring their attention to the plight of most Americans, the cost of their personal insurance is chump change compared to the campaign contributions they get from the special interests in the medical field. “Since Citizen's United it's a free-for-all for rich individuals and corporations. The only thing holding some of the worst of them back is the sheer impracticality of most of their ideas. “What would work better is if more citizen voters would pay more attention to how some of these creeps in Columbus and Washington vote, and give them unlimited vacation time at the next election. “Unfortunately with the media breaking into venues, which allow people to get the news they want as opposed to the news that is actually true, we're going to have an uphill battle getting any sort of consensus on public health in our nation. “Fortunately, the Affordable Care Act is already cutting costs for many of us, and even if it doesn't solve the bigger problems it will set the stage for continued dialogue.” N.F.

“The 535 members of Congress (and their staffs) should be

subject to exactly the same regulations and laws as other American Citizens. They should contribute to their health care as the general public does. They should also pay into Social Security (FICA). There should not be any retirement benefits above Social Security unless they have served 30 years. Better yet have term limits and force them to get real jobs. Too often these makers of the law never held a real job and are ‘above the law.’ They pass laws that apply to all except them. Go figure!" T.D.T.

“Kind of a moot question. The Congress will do whatever is best for them and not what is best for the American people. Period.” J.Z.

“The Democrats yes, the Republicans no! Seriously, whether its health care or retirement, government should not be allowed to vote its own members and staff better benefits than those available to the rest of the population. “A single term in Congress shouldn't entitle you to anything more than Cobra benefits while you look for new employment. If ex members of government had to survive on Medicare or Medicaid and Social Security those would be good programs, and yes, we all might have to contribute a bit more to ensure their long-term future.” D.R.

“If these people are already receiving a contribution from the government (their employer) it should continue. If this means they will not have to get Obama-care like the rest of us – shame on them! We should all be in this boat together. That way if and when it starts to sink they'll have an incentive to fix or replace it.”

Should the minimum wage for fast-food workers be doubled from $7.25 to $15 an hour and should they be given the right to unionize? Why or why not?

“If we raised the minimum wage, what would happen to the price of everything these workers produce or the services they provide? They would go higher, of course, by the same proportion of the wage increase. Then, those of us who don’t make minimum wage will see our costs increase so we would need a proportionate wage increase to keep from falling behind. Prices would continue to increase leading to a loss of jobs through outsourcing because the costs of production in the U.S. is too high. Those on fixed incomes would find it increasingly difficult to make ends meet which would mean the end of their independence.” David Greschel

“I’m no economist but something needs to change. Income disparity is a real and growing problem. I don’t think it’s fair that the owners of many large corporations make exorbitant amounts of money while paying their workers so little, leaving taxpayers to fill the income gap, with Medicaid, food stamps, etc. As with many other big institutions, unions are far from perfect, but historically they have helped level the playing field and promote the growth of then middle class.” S.A.M.

ture piece of legislation is too complicated for businesses, the individual mandate still stands. Businesses get a break, but individuals have no relief from the burdens of Obamacare. The individual mandate must be delayed too. In the long term, a permanent delay through the full repeal of Obamacare and its mandates is the only workable solution. On the road to repeal the House of Representatives is working to ensure that all Americans receive equal treatment under the law. Should not laws be fairly applied to everyone? The House passed two bills that legally delay not only the employer mandate, but also the individual mandate. It’s only fair. Why do hardworking indi-

viduals not deserve relief from the hardships of Obamacare? If President Obama and his allies in Congress stand by their decision to delay one mandate, is it not fair to delay the other? As a doctor and former small businessman, I know the turbulence that Obamacare causes to our economy and our health care system. While the President himself begins to acknowledge the deficiencies in his law, we all must work towards real solutions that put the patient at the center of our healthcare system, not the government.

Social Security more important now than ever Half of Americans have less than $10,000 in savings, and only 14 percent are very confident they will have enough money for a comfortable retirement according to a study by the Employee Benefit Research Institute. Our nation’s retirement system has been described as a “threelegged stool” of pensions, savings and Social Security. As employer provided pensions have Richard disappeared Schwab COMMUNITY PRESS and saving has become GUEST COLUMNIST more difficult for families, Social Security has never been more important. Social Security is one of the greatest anti-poverty programs in our country’s history. This most efficient, most effective retirement program is under attack by people who want us to believe that the only way to save the program is to slash benefits. U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin has a different take. The Strengthening Social Security Act of 2013 (S.B 567) introduced by Sen. Harkin (D-IA) would: » Strengthen benefits by reforming the Social Security benefit formula – To improve benefits for current and future Social Security beneficiaries, the Act changes the method by which the Social Security Administration calculates Social Security benefits. This change would boost benefits for all Social Security beneficiaries by approximately $70 per month, but is targeted to help those in the low and middle of the income distribution, for whom Social Security has become an ever greater share of their retirement income. » Ensure that cost of living

adjustments adequately reflect the living expenses of retirees – The Act changes the way the Social Security Administration calculates the Cost of Living Adjustments (COLA). To ensure that benefits better reflect cost increases facing seniors, future COLAs would be based on the Consumer Price Index for the Elderly (CPIE.) Making this change to Social Security would result in higher COLAs, ensuring that seniors are able to better keep up with the rising costs of essential items, like health care. » Improve the long-term financial condition of the Trust Fund – Social Security is not in crisis, but does face a long-term deficit. To help extend the life of the trust fund the Act phases out the current taxable cap of $113,700 so that payroll taxes apply fairly to every dollar of wages. Combined, these changes would increase benefits for current and future beneficiaries while making Social Security stronger for future generations by extending the life of the Trust Fund through 2049. Harkin commented on his Strengthening Social Security Act of 2013, “We must ensure that, after a lifetime of hard work, Americans are able to retire with dignity and financial independence. This legislation helps to achieve that goal.” At a time when all the other pillars of our retirement security are coming up short, we have Senator Harkin to thank for providing the leadership to preserve Social Security for the long- term. If we follow Harkin’s lead, Social Security works well into the future. Richard O. Schwab was associate head of school, and middle school head, Cincinnati Country Day School.

Sycamore football rolls behind No. 6 By Scott Springer sspringer@communitypress.com

SYCAMORE TWP. — Second place in the Greater Miami Conference in football is similar to finishing behind Usain Bolt in a 100-meter race. You didn’t win, but it’s pretty darn good. Sycamore under eighth-year coach Scott Dattilo has been gradually inching up on perennial champion Colerain and finished 9-2 last season (6-1 GMC). With the return of many “skillset” players and most of their offensive and defensive lines, the Aves should be in the hunt again this fall. “Kids have added weight appropriately and some have dropped weight appropriately,” Dattilo said. “We have some good athletes. Our senior class is a real strong class. We’re hoping for a great year.” Leading the Aves’ defense is 225-pound linebacker Tinashe Bere, who is heading to Duke after this season. Bere joined teammate Greg Simpson (No. 6) on the GMC first team as a junior. “It’s a great fit for him,” Dattilo said. “He loved his visit and loved the area. Obviously, he’s very intelligent going to Duke.” In front of Bere on the defensive line are seniors Cayden Richter and Todd Lewis. Both could get college looks and Lewis made GMC second team as a junior. “Todd put on some good weight over the summer, which was necessary,” Dattilo said. “He’s an all-league guy at defensive tackle. We feel pretty good about our interior with Tinashe back and multiple defensive

linemen back.” All quarterback Simpson did was earn co-GMC Player of the Year by running for 1,683 yards and 24 touchdowns. When he wasn’t finding the hole, he was threading the needle for 812 yards passing and 11 more touchdowns. “Greg’s a great talent,” Dattilo said. “Western Michigan has offered. Right now we’re just going to get him going out here on the field. Hopefully, he’ll have another great year and let the chips fall where they may.” His favorite target, Caleb Coletts, has graduated, but

more green and gold jerseys are in the waiting. “We have several that can fill that role,” Dattilo said. “Ryan Wahler is athletic and long and can get behind people. We also have some guys working in our

secondary that will come over (on offense) as well. We’re going to use them as needed and maximize our talent.” Behind Simpson, Solomon McMullin moves from fullback to tailback, with Jacob Collier taking over at fullback. Senior Alex Tillman will also get some carries. After three aggressive nonconference games against Walnut Hills, Ryle and Springfield, the Aviators start exchanging blows in the GMC again. “This year I think it’s going to be a real challenge,” Dattilo said. “Colerain is the team to beat ‘til somebody does it. Lakota West has a bunch of guys back, Division I caliber guys at key positions. After that, I think there’s a bunch of really good teams in the league.”

Defending state champion Moeller football reloads By Scott Springer sspringer@communitypress.com

KENWOOD — The sound you’ve heard off of Montgomery Road just past Ronald Reagan Highway is a familiar one this time of year. It’s Moeller High School football team reloading for another run. A little more than nine months since winning the Ohio Division I trophy in Canton, the Crusaders are back with their typically demanding schedule and high expectations. “We’re excited about the season,” coach John Rodenberg said. “I thought we worked out pretty hard this winter. This is a new team. We had a lot of guys graduate last year and they had their own character. This is a new team with a new character.” Stepping in for the graduated Spencer Iacovone at quarterback is Gus Ragland. Ragland played on Moeller’s state football and baseball championship teams with Iacovone and was part of the offense a year ago. “It was important for Gus to start at wide receiver to get that game experience last year,” Rodenberg said. “We think it will be a smooth transition because they’re similar-type styles.” When Ragland hands off, he’ll have a committee of Dean Meyer, Jack Gruber, John Heywood and Sterling Noes looking to chew up yards behind the Crusader line coached by former UC Bearcat Doug Rosfeld.

The line features Steven Langenkamp going to Ohio University, and Rodenberg expects Jared Jacon-Duffy to also get offered. Lining up wide are speedy junior Chase Pankey and lanky senior Isaiah Gentry. Both are strong members of Moeller’s track team in the spring.

“We might have two of the fastest receivers we’ve had in a long time,” Rodenberg said. “It should open up our vertical game a little bit this year.” Gentry has been offered by Akron and Kent and could be a big game away from attracting more attention. As always, the Crusaders have some nice tightend targets, including one who could be a factor for the next three years in sophomore Jake Haussman, who’s already at 6foot-4 and 215 pounds. “We’re loaded with about

three to four tight ends that have great potential,” Rodenberg said. “We’re excited about what we can do in formation.” Defensively, 6-foot-6 safety Sam Hubbard will turn more heads, especially after signing with Ohio State. Coordinating again is veteran Jim Lippincott, who teams up with offensive assistant Steve Klonne to form Moeller’s “Golden Boys” under Rodenberg. “We’ve got a lot of experience,” Rodenberg said. “It’s easy to work with these guys. They all do their job well and when they do that, it’s easy to control it.” Once again, Moeller’s schedule is not for the weak at heart.

I tell you the team that worries me the most is the Louisville St. X team. I thought they were young last year and tough. That’s a heck of a test before we go into league play.”

SYMMES TWP. — After a 9-2 playoff season in 2012 – including a 6-1 record and runner-up finish in the Miami Valley Conference – Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy football could be even better this season. “We have eight starters back on both sides of the ball,” head coach Eric Taylor said. “We were able to start the year at a little higher level in terms of installing plays and getting prepared, and we were at a pretty good level already.” The Eagles will maintain their spread offense and play a 3-4 base defense with plenty of multiples to keep opposing offenses off balance. The offensive line is one key strength, with senior center Christian Willard, senior guards Connor Kirbabas and Ryan Prescott and senior left tackle Jacob Haller all returning. They protect a backfield that includes a three-year senior starters like quarterback Connor Osborne and running backs Tyler Renners and Nick Marsh. Junior Cam Murray returns at receiver. Defensively, look for Prescott and junior Jake Eckert at the ends. Eckert is also an allcity punter and kicker for the Eagles.

nering NCAA Division I attention before his first varsity snap. The 6-foot-7, 255-pound defensive end grew up playing basketball in Nigeria, but switched to football this season after moving to the United States as a freshman. “We’re playing good assignment football and playing very unselfishly,” Taylor said. “Some of these guys have been best friends since they were little. They’re making good decisions and checking to of things very well. “We still have a lot of competition going on in the skill positions. That’s where we’re inexperienced and we need to grow up some.”

CCD seeks improvement through experience By Mark D. Motz mmotz@communitypress.com

INDIAN HILL — The Cincinnati Country Day Indians finished 4-6 last season, including a 2-5 mark in the Miami Valley Conference where three teams – Summit Country Day, CHCA, and North College Hill – all reached the football playoffs. Head coach Tim Dunn expects those three to be the front runners in the league again this season, but also expects his team to compete with them. With 15 returning starters on his 30-odd Dunn man roster, Dunn has reason for optimism. “We’ve got about 70 percent of our offense back,” he said. “That’s pretty good. Up front we need some more experience, but we’ll be competitive.” Junior quarterback Cameron Alldred returns to lead the Indians’ offense. He has a pair of seniors in the backfield with him in J.R. Menifee and Carson Aquino. Sophomore Dylan Jordan also plays running back. The offensive line includes returning juniors Matero Marino-Cheek, Brooks Warner and Will Koustmer, along with Mitchell Mack. Carter McMaster and junior Austin Richey serve as blocking and receiving threats at tight end. Junior Max Guttman returns at receiver The defense features many of the same characters, playing on both sides of the ball.

Dunn got a glimpse of the team in action during a threeway scrimmage against Mariemont and Williamsburg and liked some of what he saw. “We played pretty good run defense,” he said. “We threw the ball pretty well, but there’s a lot of work to do still. “We have three games to get ready for the MVC and see how far we’ve come along.”

Bombers bring explosive offense to the table By Tom Skeen tskeen@communitypress.com

SPRINGFIELD TWP. — Defenses better be prepared for the bevy of offensive weapons the St. Xavier Bombers are going to bring to the field in 2013. Senior quarterback Nick Tensing returns after throwing for nearly 2,000 yards and 17 touchdowns to just six interceptions. Coach Steve Specht not only loves what his quarterback can do on the field, but also what he brings to the huddle. “(I’ve seen) tremendous growth as far as leadership is concerned,” Specht said. “… He’s able to do things that we wouldn’t J. Hilliard be able to do with anybody else. He’s really taken to the leadership role.” Tensing is one of four team captains along with running back C.J. Hilliard, left tackle Rich Kurz and the versatile Ryan Frey. Hilliard torched defenses for nearly five yards per carry and nine touchdowns in 2012. After hitting the weight room in the offseason, defenses should expect to see more of the big back this season. “… C.J. is practicing harder than I’ve ever seen,” Specht said. “He finally learned how to practice. He’s at a different level than he’s been the previous three years, but that’s how it’s supposed to be when you’re going into your senior year.” For the Tensing-Hilliard

freight train to roll down hill, a rebuilt offensive line is going to have to come together. Kurz is the lone returner and the rest of the starters are still to be determined, according to Specht. The defense is led by junior linebacker Justin Hilliard, who is one of the most recruited players in the state of Ohio with more than 20 offers from major Division I colleges. “… He is a different player and he’s as advertised,” Specht said. “There’s a reason he’s getting all these college scholar-

ship offers. I think Justin has the chance to be as good as anybody we’ve ever had on the defensive side of the ball and that’s high praise coming from me.” While the Bombers lose four of their five starters in the defensive secondary, they return six of their starting seven up front at linebacker and defensive line. Frey will hold down the cornerback position and see time on the offensive side of the ball, while Nick Carovillano will

move from the defensive line to more of a hybrid outside linebacker. The Bombers begin the season ranked No. 24 in the nation by Rivals.com and, according to MaxPreps, have the 10th-toughest schedule in the country. Outside of playing their league games in the Greater Catholic League South, the Bombers take on Colerain, Cleveland St. Ignatius, Warren Central (Indianapolis), Brentwood Academy (Tenn.) and Ben Davis (Indianapolis).

Braves feature new offense, new turf By Scott Springer sspringer@communitypress.com

INDIAN HILL — If all goes well for Indian Hill in their opener, their quarterback will be OK for the second half at New Richmond Aug. 30. Last year, senior starter Jon Griggs ran for144 yards and two scores in the first half against the Lions and had the Braves out to a 14-0 lead. Then, he tore his ACL. “It kind of threw us in a a bit of a tailspin,” coach Mike Theisen said. Fortunately, Matt Thompson had moved back to the area and was able to take over for the final six games of Indian Hill’s season. The Braves were able to pull out two wins in what was otherwise a difficult year. With the lanky lad back for a full year, Theisen hopes to spread the field some and utilize the receiving strengths of 6foot-5 Shay Bahner, 6-foot-6 freshman Reid Aicholtz and senior Mac Carrier. “We’re going back to a pistol, but we’re going to run the ball with him a lot,” Theisen said. “He’s an outstanding runner. We expect to be a 65-35 run team.” When Thompson doesn’t run, Carrier or Ben Brendamour could carry the goods. They’ll do so with an offensive line that averages 260 pounds and features 290-pound Sam Smith. Smith, Thompson and Carrier are all getting collegiate looks. “We’re pretty beefy up front,” Theisen said. The Braves were tough to gauge last season as the early quarterback injury scrapped

their season’s plans to be a running team. It wasn’t until late in the season that some consistency reappeared under Thompson. With six varsity games under his quarterback’s belt, Theisen hopes to get back into the Cincinnati Hills League discussion. “I think people overlook us a little bit, which is fine with me,” Theisen said. “I think Wyoming’s going to be considered the favorite. I always tell people I think Taylor’s a team that’s up

After opening at New Richmond, the Braves return home to Tomahawk Stadium Sept. 6.

It’ll be their first game on the new, shiny turf installed over the summer. “Eleven years with the old turf, so it’s about time we changed that,” Theisen said. “It’s a great new look for us. The kids are really excited.”

Princeton under construction for improvement on gridiron By Mark D. Motz mmotz@communitypress.com

SHARONVILLE — Appropriate, perhaps, to see earth-moving equipment in action across Chester Road from Viking Stadium. Like the buildings in the distance, Princeton High School’s football team is under construction. The Vikings are 10 years removed from their last Greater Miami Conference league championship in 2003. They are six years past their last playoff appearance in 2007. After a 1-9 Croley season with a 1-6 record in the GMC last year, head coach Gary Croley sees better things in 2013. Look for a radical shift in offensive philosophy as Princeton adopts an Oregon-style spread offense that emphasizes speed, attempting to run a play every 13 seconds. That suits senior quarterback and co-captain Tyrell Gilbert just fine. Gilbert - who has committed to the University of Cincinnati to play free safety next year – likes the idea of putting the ball in a lot of different people’s hands. “The key to making a spread work is getting the ball to all our weapons,” he said. “It was a rough season (last year). I just want to make sure we go out and play hard for each other.”

2013 PRINCETON SCHEDULE Aug. 30 – at Xenia Sept. 6 – PICKERINGTON NORTH Sept. 13 – at La Salle Sept. 20 – at Fairfield Sept. 27 – LAKOTA EAST Oct. 4 – COLERAIN Oct. 11 – at Oak Hills Oct. 18 – LAKOTA WEST Oct. 25 – at Hamilton Nov. 1 – MIDDLETOWN All games at 7:30 p.m. unless noted.

So does senior co-captain and wide receiver Marcus Plackey. “It gives everyone a chance to get the ball, not just a couple guys,” he said. “You can’t key on any one player or any one play, because we can run and pass out of every formation. (The transition) hasn’t been a struggle at all. With all the connections between the players for all the years we’ve played together, it’s been pretty good.” Joining Gilbert and Plackey

in the captaincy are senior center Bobby Minnich, who has garnered some interest from schools like Boston College, senior cornerback Tracy Fombie and senior wideout and safety Bryant Holloway. “We feel like everyone is doubting us and we have to play with a chip on our shoulder,” Holloway said. “(As captain) you have to put your team on your back and lead by example” Frombie said, “We’re keep-

ing each other together and working hard. Hard work and dedication is what it’s going to take to win the GMC.” Having perennial league favorite Colerain back on the schedule is exciting for Minnich. “I actually think it helps,” he said. “You have to know how you stand face to face. But we think we have a legitimate chance to win.”

UC Clermont starts new season after 7th nationals appearance The UC Clermont volleyball team is back on the court preparing for the 2013 campaign. Coming off their seventh consecutive appearance at the U.S. Collegiate Athletic Association National Championship tournament in New York, the Cougars are working hard in hopes of putting together another stellar season. Harping Head Coach Joe Harpring expects the squad to be quick, deep and athletic this year. “We plan to use our depth to keep everyone fresh and avoid dragging a bit at the end of the season,” said Harpring who is beginning his ninth year as head coach at UC Clermont (13th year overall coaching at UC Clermont). “We have the luxury of a substantial number of talented individuals.” In spite of some key losses to graduation, etc., the Cougars are returning eight quality players and a talented transfer for the coming campaign. Setter Becca Walton (Mother of Mercy) and right-side hitter Haley Weber (Mariemont) enter their senior seasons and will be counted on to lead the squad. Junior outside hitter Kaitlyn Miller (Sycamore) and junior defensive specialist Courtney Maier (Newport Central Catholic) will

also lend a veteran presence to the team. Five sophomores will be back with a year of collegiate experience under their belts – middle hitter Kiley Collins (Goshen), middle hitter Heather Rowland (Norwood), setter Alex Robb (Amelia), right-side hitter Shannon Arnold (Glen Este) and outside hitter Amber Peters (Loveland and Thomas More College). Four newcomers will supple-

ment the veteran core of the Clermont team. Two are true incoming freshmen – outside hitter Amber Lawrence (FelicityFranklin) and defensive specialist Samantha Gilbert (Franklin County, Ind.). The others are walk-on defensive specialist Taylor Herrmann (Glen Este) and outside hitter Sarah Barrial (Goshen). All four won numerous awards during their high school careers.

The Cougars will face an especially challenging schedule in 2013. In addition to the usual strong USCAA, NCAA and independent opponents, Clermont will also meet a number of higher level NAIA programs. “This year we may be facing our toughest schedule ever,” said Harpring. “We want to be prepared to play the best in case we are fortunate enough to receive another post season bid.”

The season will kick off on Friday, Aug. 23, as the Cougars host Ohio Christian University – a team selected to the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) National Tournament in 2012. Game time is 6 p.m. in the Student Activities Center. For more information about the UC Clermont volleyball team visit: www.ucclermont.edu.

More than 500 Smiles…and Counting! The University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College thanks our generous sponsors for their support of the UC Smiles program, which provides area school children with access to dental care and an introduction to the possibilities of a college education.

• UC Smiles has served more than 550 local school kids over the past three years.

• Each child receives an assessment of their oral health, toothpaste, a toothbrush, floss, and tips for good nutrition.

• The check ups include a full oral health exam and teeth cleaning by qualified students in the Dental Hygiene program at UC Blue Ash College (the largest Dental Hygiene program in Ohio).

• Many of the children served in the UC Smiles program have never had access to dental care.

None of this would be possible without the generous support of Crest + Oral B, the Dental Care Plus Group and the Delta Dental Foundation.

Thank you for giving us all a reason to smile!
