Chamber of Commerce in the works By Jennie Key

Colerain Township officials say they have been discussing the formation of a chamber of commerce for a while now, and administrators plan to bring the idea to the township trustees for approval soon. A chamber of commerce is a form of business network, with the goal to further the interests of businesses within a community. Local businesses are members, and they elect a board of directors or executive council to set policy for the chamber. The board or council then hires a president or executive director, plus staffing appropriate to size, to run the organization. Colerain Township Admin-



istrator James Rowan says the time is right for Colerain to have its own chamber and he wants the township to kick start the program. Frank Birkenhauer, assistant administrator and economic development director, says the community is lagging behind. To the west, Harrison formed the Greater Harrison Chamber of Commerce last summer. To the north, West Chester Township is part of a

regional chamber that includes Butler County. Peer townships to the east including Deerfield Township, Anderson Township, Sycamore Township and Symmes Towmship have long-standing relationships with the Anderson area and Northeast Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce. Rowan wants trustees to start the chamber and house it in the east end of the community center, where the township has been concentrating on community classes and wedding rentals. The chamber would be a 501C-4 organization, which the IRS defines as a social welfare organization such as civic leagues or organizations not organized for profit, but operated exclusively for the promo-

tion of social welfare. Marie Sprenger, who has been the Colerain Township community center director, would begin work as executive director of the chamber of commerce, and a board would be appointed by the trustees. Sprenger would stay with the chamber until the end of 2014, when it would be up the chamber’s board of directors to decide whether to keep her on board. Rowan says eventually, the chamber would sponsor activities such as the Taste of Colerain, but it could also offer attractive services for businesses in the community such as educational opportunities, worker’s compensation pools, workshops, referrals, databases, lunch-and-learn pro-

grams, roundtable discussions, and assistance with economic growth and development in the community. Birkenhauer said the chamber is not setting to compete with the Colerain Township Business Association. “They do a lot of philanthropic work in the township which is very appreciated,” he said. “I sit on the CTBA board. I don’t think a chamber would compete with the business association or the Western Hamilton County Economic Council. I would hope it would be a complement.” Birkenhauer said chamber appointees would be business professionals in the township. “With all of the new business we are seeing in the township, it’s time.”

St. Ignatius students visit Japan


St. Ignatius Loyola School sent a delegation of 11 students and three chaperones to Japan. The group toured Hiroshima and Kyoto for three days before arriving in Gifu where they stayed with families attending a local school (ShotoKu Gakuen). The delegation was able to experience life as a student in Japan. The St. Ignatius students were treated to lessons in Japanese writing, flower arranging, music with Japanese instruments, as well as a cooking class where they made a meal similar to one the Japanese would eat during their most popular holiday, New Years. In the evenings, St. Ignatius students followed Japanese families as they participated in their usual activities such as dance or swimming lessons. On the weekends, St. I students were able to take sightseeing trips or enjoy typical outings, such as bowling or going to arcades.

The Japanese school is considering sending a delegation to St. Ignatius in 2014. “Our students established strong relationships with their host families,” said assistant Principal Laura Sieve, who attended the trip as a chaperone. “I believe these friendships could last a lifetime.” The delegation arrived home and shared their experiences with all the students at St. Ignatius. “We came back from Japan with a new understanding of their rich culture and were able to share it with the entire school,” Sieve said. “It was an awesome exchange that, hopefully, can continue for many years.” The trip to Japan was part of Saint Ignatius program that has included exchanges to China and France in the past. Another St. I delegation will be visiting Nancy, France, in 2014.

Diabetes prevention program offered by YMCA Gannett News Service

Considering hysterectomy?


Etheridge weighed 300 pounds, took four medications to treat her high blood pressure and was borderline diabetic. “I was a big eater,” said Etheridge, 50, of Mount Healthy. Unemployed and without insurance after a workplace injury, her doctor at the Good Samaritan Free Health Center in East Price Hill referred Etheridge to the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati’s Diabetes Prevention Program. Since attending regular meetings and exercise sessions, her weight dropped to 231 pounds. She is off two of the blood pressure medicines and is no longer at risk for diabetes or stroke. Diabetes prevention is the focus of the YMCA program that has benefited Etheridge. The oneyear community-based program is designed to help at-risk adults improve their eating habits, increase physical activity and reduce the likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes – the most common type in which the body does not use insulin properly. Etheridge’s first call was to Kiana Trabue, the YMCA’s Healthy Living director who oversees the diabetes program. “One of the best things about this program: If not for this program, Jamie and many other people couldn’t afford it,” said Trabue. Within days, Etheridge

was at the Powel Crosley Jr. branch in Springfield Township, one of seven local YMCA branches in low-income or minority communities. The Y is looking to expand the program to two more of those branches, in the West End and Walnut Hills. More than 250 people have completed the YMCA’s diabetes prevention program since it started in autumn 2010. The average weight loss has been 5.66 percent through October 2013. “If it wasn’t for this program, I might not be here now,” said Etheridge, a 1982 Northwest High School graduate who worked for 29 years, most of them as a state tested nursing assistant in nursing homes. Her weight gain increased after the birth of her two daughters, and working third shift overnight at a nursing home provided time to eat and drink sugar-rich sodas and coffee with sugar and cream. She said she normally drank two or three 2-liter bottles of Pepsi every day. During her first class,

her lifestyle coach gave measuring cups to Etheridge. “So I started, slowly, 1 cup of milk and 2 cups of cereal,” she said. She learned the importance of serving size. She stopped hitting fast-food drivethrough windows. Instead of potato chips or Twinkies, she reached for yogurt or sugar-free gelatin. She started shopping carefully, learning how to read labels for fat and sugar content. “I was so determined, one step and one day at a time,” she said. The one-year program is divided into 16 weekly sessions followed by eight monthly meetings. The program goals are to reduce body weight by 7 percent and increase physical activity to 150 minutes a week. Embarrassed initially to go Powel Crosley to exercise, even with a free one-year membership, Etheridge found a comfort zone in a water aerobics class held three days a week. As weight started to fall off, her confidence grew. She now goes into the gym to use the machines. “I learned that it’s about movement, not exercise,” she said. She has more goals. She’s cut a cigarette habit of two or three packs a day to one pack every three days. “I am going to quit,” Etheridge said.

Colerain girls fly by last year’s win total By Adam Turer

COLERAIN TWP. — The Colerain Cardinals girls’ basketball team did not need to wait until 2014 to equal its 2012-2013 win total. The Cardinals raced out to a 9-2 start and won their ninth game of the seaso Dec. 30. Last year, the Cardinals won just nine games all season, finishing 9-14. Under first-year head coach Jim Pugh, Colerain is in prime position to improve on last year’s record, as well as on last year’s sixth-place conference finish. “I really didn’t know what to expect, but so far the outcome has been a pleasant surprise. The girls have been very receptive and very coachable,” said Pugh. “I think you have to set your expectations high each season—to win games you should win and win some games you’re not supposed to win—but the bottom line is to be competitive and improve as the season progresses.” The Cardinals’ only two losses this season have come to GGCL teams Mercy and McAuley. Colerain is ranked eighth in the latest Cincinnati Enquirer coaches’ poll. Although he was not sure entirely what he was inheriting, Pugh quickly saw that the girls had the fight necessary to compete in a very difficult conference. The top three teams in the coaches’ poll are Greater Miami Conference teams. “I didn’t know the potential on the roster. I thought they were very competitive last year,” Pugh said. “The girls’ competitiveness showed up this past summer at team camp and summer league. There are no

easy games on our schedule from game one, and I’m proud of the way the girls have accepted each game as a challenge.” Seniors Erin Sherrer and Jalan Latimer have provided leadership and helped the team through the coaching transition. Sherrer leads the team with 10.8 points per game, while Latimer leads with 7.5 rebounds per game. “I think every successful program has to have quality leadership from its seniors, and they have definitely stepped up to be those quality leaders for the entire team,” said Pugh. “I have to give credit to the girls for their willingness to learn a new system and improving as we go throughout the season.” A 4-0 start in conference play bodes well for the Cardinals, because the schedule is only going to get tougher down the stretch. Four games against top three teams Princeton, Mason, and Lakota West remain, as well as a non-conference tilt with fifthranked Winton Woods on Jan. 6. Despite the hot start to the season, the Cardinals are not looking too far ahead. “The future of the program is one game at a time, with gaining experience in both positive and negative aspects of the game of basketball,” Pugh said. “I hope that when we look back on the 2013-2014 season that there will be some good memories for each player, the seniors thinking that we were successful our last year playing high school basketball, and the underclassmen thinking that they can build upon what we accomplished.” “So far, it’s been a lot of fun to see the girls improve.” Colerain hosts top-ranked Princeton on Wednesday, Jan. 8.

La Salle bowlers roll deep en route to Holiday Classic title By Tom Skeen


La Salle High School bowlers are without a doubt rolling deep right now. The Lancers won the Holiday Classic at Eastern Lanes Dec. 28 with a score of 4,404, taking down the likes of Northwest (4,310), Middletown (4,305) and Oak Hills (4,229), all of whom rank in the top four in The Cincinnati Enquirer Division I area coaches’ poll. “We got real close in a bunch of tournaments last year and for us to go in there against a big field on a stage like that and finally win a tournament is pretty fun to be a part of,”

seen him throw the ball over a three-game set in the four years I’ve been around him,” Haggard said. “He legitimately could have had two 300’s. … It’s fun to be a part of it when a kid is able to put it all together like that.” Ben Millard and Danny Reichwein round-out Haggard’s top five who have a sense of calmness over them when it comes to big, pressure moments. “They’ve been there before and seen what tournament style bowling is,” the coach said. “Bowling a tournament and bowling a match is totally different. The first time you bowl a tournament you’re super nervous and once you’ve been down

coach Hollis Haggard said. “It’s so hard to win a tournament, period, and then to win a tournament with as many good teams as there are in the Southwest area, it makes it even more special.” Haggard’s squad features five returning bowlers from last season, including Matt Nichols, Will Mullen and Eric Blessing – all of whom earned firstteam All-Greater Catholic League honors last season. Nichols was on fire at Eastern Lanes, bowling a 289, 225 and 279 for a tournament high 793 series, setting a new school record and earning him alltournament honors. “He’s a senior this year and that’s the best I’ve

that road three or four times prior, it makes it just that much easier.” With a second-place finish at the Best of the Best in Columbus and third-place at the Holiday Tournament at Western Bowl Dec. 15, high schools know they must play tough against Lancers. “One of the goals we tried to get these kids to understand is that when you come in there with that confidence, other teams are going to look at you and know they’re going to have to bowl their best today because La Salle is here,” Haggard said. “To have that respect and wow-factor from the other schools, that’s exciting for La Salle bowling.”

In the post-911 world many parts of our freedom of speech have been curtailed. “The real question is how much freedom are we willing to sacrifice in order to feel safer from terrorism occurring on our soil? And if you have a problem with that sacrifice of freedom, don’t use a cell phone.”

redefine the traditional ideas of what retirement means. It’s not bingo and bridge, but learning and experiencing new things. Llanfair is ready for that new look at retirement. It’s in our culture already. As a Masterpiece Living community, we use the 10year research study done by the MacArthur Foundation and the Mayo Clinic to help our residents choose a lifestyle that helps them age successfully. That research

showed that aging has more to do with our lifestyle choices than our genetics. So, the decisions we make on a day-to-day basis affect our overall health. At Llanfair, we believe in this so strongly that we actively engage and challenge ourselves and residents spiritually, intellectually, physically and socially every day. Locally, we partner with the Flying Pig Marathon, the Contemporary Dance Theater and the College Hill Recreation Center. We educate ourselves

on the world around us through documentaries, weekly educational programs and in-depth training on health issues. According to, the reason Cincinnati was the No. 1 ranked city was because, “Residents rarely run out of things to do in Cincinnati.” Funny, our residents say the same thing. Sheena Parton is executive director, Llanfair Retirement Community.

Volunteers make holiday miracles all year round St. Vincent de Paul volunteers visit the homes of neighbors in need and experience the heart-wrenching effects of poverty first hand. When a family slips into distress, the pain is almost tangible. A mother who lives in a Westside neighborhood, worn down by worry because her utility bill is late and her children are sleeping on the cold floor. An adult man on the brink of tears because his children have nothing to eat for dinner in their small city apartment. An elderly couple, living in an Eastside suburb, forced to decide between losing their home and foregoing their life-saving prescription medications. Our communities have experienced a lot of changes this year: food stamp cuts,

health care changes, and an economy that seems to be turning around for some, but has left many families beLiz hind. Carter We see the COMMUNITY direct effects PRESS GUEST COLUMNIST of these changes first hand each day, the most devastating being the impact on children. Every day, our volunteers visit the homes of parents who work multiple part-time jobs so they can keep food on the table, or who have sold the last of their possessions so that they can keep the lights on. When our volunteers deliver gifts to the homes of neigh-

bors in need, they are blessed to witness what one act of kindness can mean to a struggling family. A child giggling with joy as they bounce on their new bed, a mother with tears streaming down her face as her children’s Christmas gifts are carried into her home, a family gathered together on Christmas morning with hope for a brighter new year. You can inspire hope and make love grow in the hearts of a family in need by: » Making a donation in honor of a loved one. » Visiting or calling 513-421HOPE to make a donation or lean more.

Happy New Year – ‘Teeth brushing with the opposite hand’ Yes, life can be boring. We quickly develop a daily routine … a repeated pattern of timelines, things that need to be accomplished before the conclusion of the day. Even more stimulating jobs, can still get to be a customary flow of actions necessitated to complete daily assignments. For some of us life is just going to work, coming home to watch TV, downing a beer, and lounging on a timeworn couch. The next day...the next day...the next day...the next day... is much the same as you sprinkle in weekends and holidays. And before you know it, we’re really old and only capable of sitting on that worn out couch...watching TV. A couple of years ago my wife decided that every year she was going to learn something new. This was sort of a New Year’s resolution that reenergized her kindred spirits. One year it was learning how to downhill was learning to play the dulcimer...learning to flip off a diving board...learning to open water swim and then swim across the Ohio River. A couple of years ago, she researched about animal therapy, getting certified

and training our two English Labrador retrievers as therapy companions. What a difference in her life this Wes new learning Adamson opportunity COMMUNITY PRESS made to othGUEST COLUMNIST ers as well. One of the new things I decided to learn was how to cook; I mean, just the basics. Ask my wife and she will tell you, my cooking even after learning, wasn’t all that noteworthy. As she put it, “you’re just wasting those ingredients!” I did challenge myself to learn something new, but eventually decided that cooking wasn’t going to be in my “top 10” skills. I was motivated by that experience to try learning how to bake bread like mom did and what a “slam dunk” that was! Thanks to a dear friend, who encouraged me with a book on artisan bread baking, I currently oven bake all sorts of “Old Style” European bread for my neighbors/ friends. In writing this column, I was amazed at all the research being done on the human brain. Most of the

research results find that to keep the brain healthy, working and cultivating more cells, we must keep it mentally sharp. One idea I read somewhere was to brush your teeth with the opposite hand to challenge your brain. But, that didn’t work well the first I lost my grip on the brush and it flip...sending toothpaste all over my new re-gifted sweater! I’m now trying brain stimulation crossword puzzles. But life is so much more with a positive mindset of new learning opportunities! Eartha Kitt says it best: “I am learning all the time. The tombstone will be my diploma.” Life-long learning is trying new things and can’t wait to decide on a 2014 new year challenge...maybe rock climbing? My wife’s response: “Only if I up my life insurance policy.” Oh well...back to brushing teeth with my left hand!

Incorporate healthy greens into your diet with pizza I was flipping through my gourmet food magazines and two items kept popping up as “newbies” for 2014. One is the herb fennel, in particular bronze fennel. I had to chuckle since I’ve grown both green fennel, which produces a delicious bulb, and also bronze, which is grown for its leaves and seeds, for years. Fennel contains vitamin C and potassium, good for immune and Rita nervous Heikenfeld systems, RITA’S KITCHEN and the heart. In fact, I just featured a fennel/garlic crust on pork roast on my cable show “Love Starts in the Kitchen.” Watch it on Time Warner local access. The other trend is kale, but not the oldfashioned curly kale like Grandma grew. Kale varieties are almost endless. You’ll find lots of recipes, including the two I mention in my pizza recipe. Kale is an easy cool crop, so grow some come spring. I’d also like to issue a formal invitation for you to share your favorite recipes and tips along with the story that goes with them. I’m not particular, so whatever you like to cook, whether it’s fancy, plain or in between is fine by me. If you send along a photo, so much the better!

Whole wheat pizza with garlic, greens and two cheeses We grow kale, including Locinato/Tuscan/Dino and Russian kale. Both are milder tasting than curly kale. Mixing kale with Swiss chard or spinach tones down the taste of kale. Greens like these contain nutrients essential for tissue growth and repair, and even your picky eaters will like this. You can use just chard or spinach if you like. 1 pre-baked 12 oz. Boboli whole wheat pizza shell 2-3 teaspoons finely minced garlic 3-4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil Pizza sauce to cover Enough small Swiss chard or spinach and kale leaves to cover (or large leaves, chopped) 6-8 oz. Fontina cheese, shredded 3-4 oz. crumbled goat cheese Optional: Sliced tomatoes, chives

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Stir garlic into olive oil. Brush over crust. Top with pizza sauce and greens, overlapping leaves so entire surface is covered. Sprinkle with cheeses. Slice cherry or regular tomatoes and lay on top if you like. Bake 10 minutes or until cheese melts.

Tips from Rita’s kitchen

Substitute Gorgonzola for goat cheese.

Rita’s pizza recipe features healthy greens plus two kinds of cheese.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Priscilla Pancoast’s heirloom corn pudding Wow – talk about lots of requests for this! The original recipe came from Priscilla’s mother’s cousin, who was from Niles, Ohio. “This almost has a cult following,” said Priscilla. Check out my blog for more corn pudding recipes, including the famous Beaumont Inn’s corn pudding, along with an old-fashioned version of this treasured side dish. 2 eggs 1 stick of butter1 package Jiffy corn muffin mix

8 oz. grated cheddar 8 oz. sour cream 1 can yellow corn with juice, approximately 15 oz. 1 can cream-style corn, approximately 15 oz.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter, beat eggs slightly, then mix everything together and put in greased 21/2 quart casserole and bake for about 45 minutes.

Tips from readers’ kitchens

Add extra flavor to box cakes. Nancy Mauch, a Clermont County reader and mom of my former editor, Lisa Mauch, shares this tip:

For box cakes, substitute milk or juice for liquid called for. “Adds another element of flavor,” Nancy said. Buying blue cheese in bulk. Dave, a loyal reader, said he found a five-pound bag of blue cheese crumbles at GFS (Gordon Food Service) for $19. He made batches of Nell Wilson’s blue cheese dressing and was looking for an affordable way to do it. Tomato preserve recipe a big hit. Lana Kay, a Northern Kentucky reader, made my aunt Margaret’s recipe last summer. “I was surprised how many people

had never tasted them,” she said. Lana shared it with an Amish vendor at a farmer’s market and I have no doubt it will become a big seller. Tomato preserves are another trendy, but really old-fashioned, condiment that chefs will be featuring this year.

The Cincinnati Community ToolBank is a nonprofit tool lending program that serves charitable organizations by putting high-quality tools in the hands of the volunteers who are painting schools, repairing seniors’ roofs, landscaping public spaces, and more, guaranteeing that every volunteer is equipped with the tools they need to get the job done. ToolBank’s resources empower all nonprofit organizations to perform larger, more ambitious, and more frequent service projects in the community. Since opening in July 2012, the Cincinnati ToolBank has served 81 charitable organizations, enabling them to equip more than 27,000 volunteers with more than $450,000 worth of tools used to complete more than 1,700 community projects. The GCF grant will be used to cover general operational expenses of the tool lending program which are critical to fulfilling the ToolBanks mission. These expenses include tool inventory acquisition, tool repair and maintenance supplies, staff and administrative expenses necessary to operate the program. “We are thrilled with the generosity and support of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation,” said Kat Pepmeyer, executive director of the ToolBank. “General operating funds are often challenging to secure and critical to sustaining our operations. GCF, a very well-respected community foundation, typically does not support general operating requests especially for organizations as young as the Cincinnati ToolBank and to have their vote of confidence is a tremendous compliment the organization.”
