Springfield Twp. residents to pay for own street repairs Jennie Key firstname.lastname@example.org
SPRINGFIELD TWP. – Your road is fixed. Here’s the bill. Residents of some township neighborhoods have clamored for road repairs, and township officials are willing to make them. But township officials say from now on, residents will have to help share the financial load of infrastructure repairs in their community.
The township’s last road levy passed in 1997, which generated $483,893 last year. After four failed road levy requests from 2006 to 2008, officials decided they needed to find a different solution to the funding problem for road repairs. The township adopted a five-year infrastructure plan last year, which includes: » continuing township funding of its sidewalk program, » pursuing state grant money to re-
place streets in failed condition, » and continuing to use existing road funds, general funds and county grants to continue repairing township streets. The plan also requires a change in priorities. The township wants to make intermediate repairs on streets in good and fair condition to keep them from sliding into poor condition. And to address as many streets as possible as quickly as
SHARONVILLE – Sharonville has extended its moratorium on the establishment of medical marijuana dispensaries, to allow officials to continue to study the issue and determine how the city will regulate any fuLukas ture retailers. City Council voted to continue the moratorium for 180 days following a previous six-month ban. That moratorium had been established in advance of House Bill 523 taking effect on Sept. 8. Safety Service Director Jim Lukas said Sharonville’s Planning Commission and City Council will decide whether to prohibit permits for the cultivation, processing or sale of marijuana. This discretion is allowed under Ohio law. “The decision could also be made to allow certain aspects with amendments to our zoning code,” Lukas said. “The state is not finished with establishing their guidelines yet and there are those who believe that the provision which allows cities to prohibit these uses may be challenged in court. We will continue to monitor the above and discuss it further with our Plan-

West Fork Park getting makeover in 2017 Jennie Key email@example.com
Green Township trustees set their sights on West Fork Park for improvements in 2017. The park is home to the Holiday Playland, a large, wooden play structure built by community volunteers and Kiwanis support during a weeklong event in September 1999. Township Administrator Frank Birkenhauer says the playground is becoming hard to maintain. “Some of the bolts are stripped and they just spin when you try to tighten them,”
he said. “And the upkeep is becoming expensive.” What the township has in mind for the Monfort Heights park is a complete reboot: Demolish the existing playground, regrade the site and install a more accessible, safer playground at the park. Birkenhauer says the rebuild will cost the township more than $500,000. “But we will get a quality playground that is more useable than what’s there now,” he said. Safety features for playgrounds have improved considerably since the treated wood
structure was built. The new playground will feature a safer ground cover than the mulch currently used. And the equipment is more usable for youngsters with disabilities. “It’s going to be very nice,” Birkenhauer said. Green Township Trustee Triffon Callos says that as homes in the neighborhood across the street are sold to families with younger children, the playground will be a highdemand facility. And the recent construction of sidewalks conSee FORK, Page 2A

The wooden Holiday Playground at West Fork Park is set for a makeover this year. Officials plan to replace the old wooden structures, likely at the end of the summer.

ning Commission and City Council for their thoughts in the near future.” HB 523 was signed June 8, with an effective date of Sept. 6, though details about how medical marijuana would be licensed, cultivated and dispensed are still being worked out. It established a Medical Marijuana Control Commission, which will administer the Medical Marijuana Control Program.

necting the school, library
The program will allow patients, with a physician’s recommendation, to use medical marijuana for a qualifying medical condition. The patient, any caregivers and the physician must be registered through the program. Personal use of medical marijuana is not allowed, and it can’t be smoked or used in any combustible way. It will be available through oils, tinctures, plant materials, edibles and patches. The program also specifies that it can’t be made or sold in a way that’s attractive to children.
The zoning of dispensaries has been left up to local municipalities, but none can be located within 1,000 feet of a school, church, public library, public park or public playground. Those regulations also apply to cultivators, processors and laboratories. While marijuana is classified as a Schedule 1 controlled substance, medical marijuana has been classified as a Schedule 2. This means it has no currently acceptable medical use or safety process, and has a high risk of abuse.

to begin work, to keep the park available for youngsters during the summer play season. Other park improvements on the books for 2017 in Green Township include new restrooms at Veterans Park and a pickle ball court at Bicentennial Park. Birkenhauer said the bathroom project will cost about $200,000 and the new pickle ball courts will cost about $25,000. “Pickle ball is apparently really popular,” he said. “And we have a perfect place for courts at Bicentennial Park.”

possible, the township is now using assessments for homeowners on the streets needing repair to pay for the work. The township keeps tabs on the condition of the streets it is responsible to maintain. Townships are not responsible for state routes such as Winton Road, or county roads, such as Galbraith Road or Daly Road. “If it has lane markings, it’s probably not a township street,” said Chris Gilbert, assistant administrator for Springfield Township. The pavement inventory indicates the township has 120 streets in poor condition and it would cost $34.29 million to rebuild all of them. There are 160 in fair condition, with a $4.45 million price tag for restoration. That difference in cost is why officials say it is important to keep streets from deteriorating into poor condition. It costs so much more to restore them at that level. The township has 97 streets classified as good and 23 ranked as new.
How will this work?

Property assessments will be equal to 50 percent of total project cost. Gilbert said the township wants to keep the cost equal to a 1.5-mill or 2mill levy. Here’s what happens. Springfield Township officials identify homeowners with access to streets in a particular neighborhood that need work and invite them to a meeting. At that meeting, officials explain the financial background, lay out the project, recommend a level of repair and share how much the

work will cost and what the assessment would be for each homeowner. It’s an annual cost, spread out over time on the homeowner’s property tax bill. Gould said the length of the assessment is tied to the useful life of the improvement. If the improvement will only last four years then it will be a four-year assessment. Currently, the township has one project with a four-year assessment, two with eight-year assesments, and the remaining are 10 years because that is the maximum allowed by state law. Once the process and project are explained, the residents are charged with collecting signatures on a petition that agrees to shoulder the assessment. Ohio law says an assessment requires 51 percent of titled property owners must sign an agreement before the assessment can be levied for this kind of work. If the neighborhood can’t collect signatures from more than half of the homeowners, the township will move on to another community. There was some dissent about the proposal at a recent meeting with Wyoming Point Place residents, but the major-

Response to new assessments has been positive Kim Flamm, projects, events and communications coordinator for the township, said response to the new assessments has been positive. The township plans six neighborhood projects with assessments as part of the funding and signatures are in place for five of the six. The Millbrook subdivision is still collecting signatures. Public Works Director Mike Gould said with 236 homeowners, it is taking longer to collect the necessary signatures in that neighborhood, but he was confident that project will be approved by more than half of the homeowners. “That’s our biggest assessment project to date,” he said. “But residents have accepted this. It puts control back in the hands of the residents and it’s going to help us address our streets before they get to failing condition. That saves money. It costs seven times as much to address a failing street as it does to preserve pavement in fair condition. “We have a five-year infrastructure plan. That’s how we are setting our priorities from now on,” he said. “Going forward, all of our street projects will have an assessment component.”
Tailor made programs at our Assisted Living apartments offer resident’s different levels of care based on their own individual needs. Each basic level of care includes: • Spacious one and two bedroom suites • On site beauty salon, gardens, bank, chapel, library and more • Fitness center and warm water pool • 3 meals daily including meal set up 1 bedroom apartments • Reassurance and spot checks 24 hours a day now • Housekeeping available! • Reminders for meals, activities, personal care • Exciting and stimulating social and recreational programming
ity signed the petitions for the assessment to go through. Opponents felt they already pay taxes and said the township should pass a levy to pay for street repairs. Many felt like Ken Krebs, who lives in the neighborhood. He said he thinks the assessment program is a good way to get township streets into good condition. “I think it’s a good way to make sure our street gets fixed,” he said. “I really have no problem with it.”

Keeping Your Resolutions with Remke Markets Pat Iasillo Matthew 17:20 : For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you. If you ever belonged to a gym, you know at the beginning of January, the gym so full you can hardly find room to sweat. You also know then that the crowd thins out considerably by the end of January. It seems there is a mysterious force of nature on January 1st that compels people to run on treadmills, lift weights and jazzercise to reshape themselves. January 1st is followed by a magical date later in January when the populace is reminded they have better
things to do than pull muscles. Here are a few quotes I found about New Year’s resolutions: Jay Leno said, “Now there are more overweight people than average weight people so overweight people are now average which means, you have met your New Year’s resolution!” “My resolution is to stop hanging out with people who ask me about my New Year’s resolutions.” “This year I resolve to make better bad decisions.” “My New Year’s resolution is to stop procrastinating. I am not starting until next week though.” Why do we make resolu-
tions? More importantly, why do we make resolutions we do not keep? We must be missing something. It seems all we really need to do is to understand the process and we can achieve anything. I went on a search for wisdom and searched Amazon to see if there is any wisdom out there we are missing. I did a search using “self-help books.” There were 783,466 results! Are there really 783,466 people out there who have more knowledge than we have and are so smart they are able to get a book published so the ignorant masses can become better people? I think not. I think most of the authors are people who failed to keep most of their resolutions except one; write a book. It is my humble opinion we make the achievement of a goal far too complicated. It basically boils down to two things; visualization and do-
ing. You don’t need to buy a book. This is free information! Visualize what you want. By visualize, I don’t mean seeing it one time and then moving to get it done. I mean to think about it every day. In fact, obsess about it. You should wake up thinking about it and eventually the thought will permeate every part of your day. Eventually, you will do. Make sure the steps are small. Walk around the block today, walk around two blocks tomorrow. Stop smoking for a few hours today, add another hour on every day. Keep visualizing! What does this have to do with Remke Markets? If eating and being healthier is your goal, we are your solution. Putting more fruits and vegetables in your diet will go a long way to change how you look and feel. A number of years ago, Remke Markets was voted the best fresh produce in the city. We didn’t get

DePaul Cristo Rey High School » Calling the Cristo Rey model, “the coolest thing,” Ohio Gov. John Kasich honored DePaul Cristo Rey High School and the two other Ohio Cristo Rey schools with the Governor’s School Innovation Award. DePaul Cristo Rey was recognized, along with Cristo Rey Columbus and Saint Martin de Porres (Cristo Rey Cleveland), in a ceremony at the Ohio Statehouse. There were seven schools and districts statewide recognized by the governor; DePaul Cristo Rey was the only Cincinnati-area school honored. In recognizing the Cristo Rey schools, Kasich called the urban education model of college-prep academics and Corporate Work Study, “the coolest thing.” He said that all the schools recognized “take risks” and “prepare students for the knowledge economy.” He said that he hopes these schools inspire “education envy” across the state.

It was started by home economics teacher Ramona Leist, whose students prepared and served the meal as a way to give back to the community. Leist, who retired in 1997, has attended every brunch except one.

For the veterans, the day brought the chance to be recognized, to share the time and site of their service, and to receive thanks and handshakes as they wove through halls lined with applauding Whitaker students.

ior at Butler Tech’s Northwest Career Center in Colerain Township added two accomplishments to his resume that are downright “presidential.” The first came in late November when he was e lected president of state officer team for Ohio Business Professionals of America (BPA), an organization for students pursuing careers in business, information technology and related fields. The second honor came few short weeks later, when the Ohio Association for Career and Technical Education named Boyd as one its five semi-
finalists for the United States Presidential Scholars Program. Boyd was formally recognized during a ceremony in Columbus on Jan. 18. The program, established in 1964 and administered by the U.S. Department of Education, is described as “one of the nation’s highest honors for high school students” in the U.S. “A lot of careers intrigued me like lawyer, doctor, and pharmacist, but when I came (to Butler Tech) and heard about a career path in business, I knew that was for me,” Boyd said. “I am the business-type for sure, because I love the business environment. In it, I feel professional, I look professional, and that makes me feel good about myself
and makes me feel confident in who I am and what I’m doing.” In the meantime, his college acceptance letters have started rolling in. At this point, he’s heard from approximately 15 colleges. He is still sorting through scholarships and what makes the most sense as he plans to major in business and minor in finance.

Little helpers create muffin recipe Blueberry banana muffins
I could blame a visit from the church ladies for the reason I left the butter out of a muffin recipe I’m sharing today. But I won’t, because even if they didn’t stop to visit I might have forgotten the butter anyway. That sometimes happens when I’m baking with the little ones. (And truth be told, it happens once in a while even when I’m by myself!). My granddaughters, Emerson, 4 years old and Ellery, 2, wanted to make banana muffins. That was fine with me since the bananas were too Rita ripe to eat so they were perfect for Heikenfeld making muffins. “Can we put some blueberries in RITA’S KITCHEN too?” Emerson asked. My reply was “Sure, why not.” So the banana muffins turned into blueberry banana muffins and even without the butter, they were yummy, not as tender as usual, but A-OK!
Muffins are an excellent item to make with kids, since the batter doesn’t require much mixing, good for their short attention span. For step-by-step photos, check out my abouteating.com site. 1-1/2 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt Handful or so blueberries (opt) 2-3 very ripe bananas, mashed smooth 3/4 cup sugar 1 egg 1/3 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350. Spray muffin pans. Whisk flour, baking powder, soda and salt together. and if adding blueberries, stir them in gently. In a separate bowl, combine bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter together. Pour flour mixture on top and mix just until dry ingredients are incorporated. Mixture will still be a bit lumpy. Don’t over mix since that may create tunnels in the baked muffin, and they will be less tender. Scoop into pans about 2/3 full. Bake 25 minutes or so until top springs back when lightly tapped.
Readers want to know When is a shoulder a butt? In spite of what the name implies, pork butt comes from the front leg of the pig. It got its name from the wooden barrels, called butts, that it was once packed in. Not only that, the term originated in Boston and that’s why you sometimes hear pork butt called Boston butt. The butt is cut from the upper half of the shoulder on top of the leg, the bottom half of the shoulder is called a picnic roast closer to the foot. Fresh pork butt is the same as fresh pork shoulder. That’s what I use in goetta. What is a French vegetable peeler?” I love this gadget. It’s a “y” shaped peeler and it makes it easy to get very thin, wide slices from zucchini, carrots, etc...

Reduced calories in rice: clarification I wanted to clarify the information included in my column about reducing the amount of calories in rice by adding coconut oil. Here’s what Dr. Oz has to say about cooking 1 cup rice, which contains about 200 calories, and adding coconut oil:
Tip from Rita’s kitchen THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD
Emerson Heikenfeld shows off the banana blueberry muffins she helped create.
Add teaspoon of coconut oil to rice Coconut oil contains healthy fats that can change the composition of the starch in rice to reduce calories. Rice is made up of both digestible and resistant starches, and coconut oil increases the resistant starch levels of rice – meaning that fewer calories will be digested. Simply add the coconut oil to the boiling water and then add in the rice. Cool and reheat the rice The process of heating up already-cooled rice makes its resistant starch increase even more to cut out at least 100 calories from your serving. After you precook your rice, let it cool in your refrigerator for about 12 hours. Then reheat it before you serve it.

Lois Maas’ spinach salad dressing For Mitch, a Milford reader. “I lost the recipe for a spinach salad dressing that had horseradish mustard in it. We really liked it. Can you find it again?” Yes, I can! The recipe originated with Lois Maas, a Cherry Grove reader. Well, this isn’t exactly Lois’ recipe. “My sister gave it to me,” she said. If I remember correctly, Lois makes a spinach salad with hard boiled eggs, bacon and Pepperidge Farm stuffing croutons on top. The recipe here is only slightly adapted. Put everything in blender and blend until well mixed: 2/3 cup canola oil Up to 2/3 cup sugar 1/3 cup wine vinegar or more to taste 3 tablespoons horseradish mustard (Plochman’s is always good) 1 teaspoon salt 1 medium onion

Thoughts on bread “Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.” Flavia Weedn Erna and her husband, Alfred, had been our “old country,” German neighbors for years. I loved hearing both their German accent and their willingness to share German traditions/culture with us. Erna’s passion is cooking, as she is considered a gourmet chef, cooking for numerous famous people including a past United States president, George H.W. Bush. A picture of them standing together after dinner is framed on her living room wall. Erna has a heart of gold and always is cooking for neighbors. Her mom in her eighties lived close by; her specialty was baking oven homemade bread. Oma, which is a Dutch word for grandma, always stopped by our house with one of her famous loaves each baking day on her way to Erna’s. This was a genuine old country custom of sharing bread/food with neighbors. After Oma died, I was inspired by her to continue the oven stone bread baking and giving loaves to our neighbors. Another bread baking friend shared a wonderful book on baking old crusty artisan bread. It’s been about four years now in the persistent attempt to make that perfect bread dough. Many loaf receivers will tell you some have been better than others, but nevertheless enjoy the total homemade bread baking process and the especially sharing with others. My wife continues to remind me that baking is a science and you need to follow exactly what the recipe says. I’m convinced this is true, but I love to challenge it as I add a little here and there, just to add excitement of the

unknown to the experience. I still find it a little wild to understand the role of yeast in the bread baking process. I often hold up the yeast bag to study these little guys. They look like tiny brown worm-like seeds that seem to move as I add water. Now I know some people reading this might squirm a little on this Wes Adamson description, but if you COMMUNITY PRESS look up yeast it is deGUEST COLUMNIST scribed as: “a one-celled fungus that converts sugar and starch into carbon dioxide bubbles and alcohol.” All this chemistry is happening in one bread pan. Besides of course, the sweet comforting taste of warm buttered bread is the aroma of freshly baked bread filtering thru the house. I read somewhere that in a study, they found that fresh baking homemade bread aroma has the power to make people kinder, putting them into a more positive mood. Wow, the unbelievable power of homemade bread. The beginning article quote speaks to my story as how one person entered my life, influencing me forever. Each one of us has experienced this. But the most important part is not on the receiving end, but the action role of being apart of people lives, improving them forever. Wes Adamson is a resident of Wyoming.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR What happened to American/family values? The woman who wrote to ask “What happened to American/ family values?” Feb. 1 has a bad case of TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome). With barely a week in office, the writer confidently predicts and bemoans Trump’s entire four years in office. She reveals her insecurities by espousing a whole list of spurious Progressive Democrat talking points. Newsflash: The “working people of America” elected Trump and are pleased that he is moving forward on the promises made during the campaign. Keeping your promises – how is that for an American value?

Thanks for the humor I always anticipate the “thud” on my front Colerain Township porch - this week’s Northwest Press has arrived. I quickly review the front page then immediately turn to the “Viewpoints” section and hope to find a contribution again from the very prolific Green Township liberal, Ms. Ann Thompson. Why? Simple. As the Press papers do not have a comic section and, since one needs a good laugh now and then, I enjoy reading Ms. Thompson’s convoluted left wing humor. For the past eight years, we conservatives have been asking the same question she presented, “What happened to American/family values?”
President Trump has only been in office three weeks and already the liberals have painted him the demon who has taken away our money and values. What poppycock. If the liberals would start behaving like adults, get out of the street and stop blocking traffic and commerce, throwing hissy fits, stop the useless demonstrations which often result in the destruction of personal property, and finally get over the fact they lost, perhaps we could get on with making this country great again. I suggest you become a subscriber to the nonpartisan Judicial Watch; their reports and findings make for very interesting reading as they unravel many of the Washington improper and often, illegal shenanigans carried out these past eight years by both Democrats and Republicans alike. Keep an open mind, but beware - you may not like what you read. Charles T. Homer Colerain Township

CH@TROOM Feb. 8 question Do President Trump’s recent orders involving border security and immigration make the country more safe or less safe? Why?
“Anything that controls the flow of possible terrorists is a help. I am totally nonplussed with the comments of noncitizens of the U.S. being ‘denied’ their ‘Constitutional rights.’ Anyone who believes Sharia (a theocratic judicial system) has a place in the United States certainly hasn‘t read the Constitution. “It is sad that we will make errors, that inconvenience some, while protecting the many. For those who die because we don’t let them in, it is a comment on the ‘other’ systems, not ours. Yes, there are horrible regimes throughout the world. We need to fight them any time they threaten our well being. ‘Death to America’ is one of those sayings that seems to pretty clearly express a threat. “Saudi Arabia and Syria, both could house refugees, but refuse to acknowledge the Christians are worthy of protection. The U.N. continues to push the concept that, since all the refugees want to be in Western societies, Western societies have an obligation to provide all the money and comfort, regardless of the stated goals of the terrorists. Israel understands this. Australia understands this. Germany is awakening to their error.” D.B.
“President Trump’s foreign policy decisions seem to be isolating the United States from Europe and even Australia. That doesn’t make me feel better. Also his lack of including the countries of Egypt and Saudi Arabia in his seven country immigration stoppage seemed odd. “However it was pointed out to me that he has business dealings in those two countries so he wouldn’t want to alienate those governments. “That makes me feel less safe because I get the feeling he is not above placing Trump before country and therefore

Trump before citizen. “No matter what happens to the regular, run-of-the mill-citizens, I know that President Trump and his family will be fine. To feel safe I will just imagine I am from the new, blustery, tangerine-tinged presidential lineage.” C.S.
“Will Trump’s immigration move make the country more or less safe? The answer is both. Many people feel our borders have been far too porous for far too long and that needs to be fixed. However, there are many true refugee families that need to get out of their countries due to ongoing war and emigrate legally to a safer country such as ours. However, the baddest of the bad, ISIS, the radical Islamist terrorist group, realize that the large migration of refugees (mostly into Europe) is a perfect cover for infiltrating evil-doers into other societies where they can unleash more unspeakable atrocities. Using this cover to do the same in the US can be very useful to their evil-doing plans. “Trump’s plan can help minimize this potential. However, he and his team have given this move zero thought into unintended consequences, which, among other things, has led to an awful lot of civil unrest. Bottom line: we are a little safer, however, radical Islam wins a round in the process.”

Princeton strike lingers 50 years later While winding down from the end of year holiday celebrations, the phone rang at 9 p.m. Jan. 23, 1972. The call was not a Happy New Year’s wish. Instead the purpose of the Princeton CO administrator’s call was a directive to report to the district’s transportation office the followNoel Taylor ing morning at 6 a.m. COMMUNITY PRESS Fifty-four school bus GUEST COLUMNIST drivers had just declared a strike, while 18 of their colleagues indicated that they would not join them. District administrators were being summoned to ride “shotgun” on the 18 buses scheduled to operate the next day. To no one’ surprise talks between representatives of Princeton’s bus drivers association and the board of education had reached impasse. As a result the majority of drivers opted for the fateful decision to strike. The primary issue of disagreement was the board’s refusal to recognize the bus driver’s union as the representative of all classified employees. In preparation for the work stoppage Princeton’s director of transportation and other administrators had developed an emergency transportation plan that involved busing students from their neighborhood schools to Princeton Junior High School, Princeton High School and the Robert E. Lucas Schools. Routes were also devised to transport elementary school students who lived more than two miles from their local neighborhood school. When drivers and administrators reported for duty the next morning, they were greeted with icy temperatures and blowing snow. The day’s first run was between the neighborhood schools and Princeton High School. Aboard one of three buses headed to Stewart Elementary, no one knew exactly what to expect in terms
of picket lines, harassment, etc... In fact a deep sense of apprehension prevailed since many of the striking drivers lived in the Stewart community. Upon arrival the drive into the school was blocked by striking bus drivers. After the three buses came to a halt on Conrey Road, the CO administrator on the lead bus was the first to confront the drivers. Since access to the building was blocked, he proceeded to read a three page no trespassing order. Not one word was spoken as he dutifully read through the document. In the early days of the strike tensions mounted in all communities and district facilities. As soon as the strike was declared, all of the drivers who chose to stand with the union were terminated by the school district. At that time Ohio’s Ferguson Act specifically prohibited public employees from conducting a work stoppage. After Princeton’s board of education invoked the Ferguson Act the district actively sought replacements for the 54 vacancies that had been created. As the days passed new drivers were trained and employed and the number of buses used to transport students increased. In the aftermath Princeton did not re-employ any of the terminated bus drivers. Some found driving opportunities in surrounding districts, while others simply moved forward with their lives. Although students were temporarily inconvenienced by the strike, they recovered far more quickly than the general Princeton community. Even though the strike occurred almost 50 years ago, it’s shadowy vestiges of acrimonious feelings still linger within various corners of the community today. Noel Taylor is a former Princeton City Schools administrator and a resident of Sharonville.

Seeing through new eyes On Jan. 7, I interviewed a person very much like yourself; he is a sighted person. I learned a few secrets from him about what he thinks of sighted people and how they treat people who are blind. In so many words, he thinks people who are blind far too often get a raw deal Joyce Rogers from their sighted COMMUNITY PRESS peers. Later, I will let GUEST COLUMNIST you in on the secret of what my interviewee advises you to do. Michael Wigle, my interviewee, is the manager of Information technology at the Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Michael is really excited about and happy with his job, especially, in the last couple of years because his agency is taking a new look at what it does. Sighted staff members on all levels are seeing people who are blind or visually impaired as people like themselves who need jobs and who can do jobs, and they are devoted to making good things happen even more so than in the past. CABVI is putting more emphasis on contracting with private corporations such as the Kroger Company to place qualified people who are blind in supervisory and management positions. That is indeed a big jump from what I saw fifty years or so ago. I met a CABVI employee with a graduate degree who made brooms for his living. Seeing with new eyes is a winning position for everyone.
Michael, who has worked at CABVI for 17 years, advises other sighted people to get over their fear of being blind because “your fear cripples you and excludes people who are blind from your life.” I agree that blindness can be scary, but it does not have to be. Michael, who is a U.S. citizen by choice rather than by birth, has something else to tell the rest of us citizens by birth. He says he loves the U.S. Constitution because it essentially is the people telling the U.S. Government what it cannot do. Maybe, you never thought of the U.S. Constitution in that way, and maybe, you never realized that people who are blind or visually impaired are exactly the same as you. If you suddenly became blind, would you still be you? To put the matter another way, if you, a sighted person, were in a totally dark room with a person who is blind; who would be more functional? In other words, is the disability in the person or in the attitude and the environment? I say it is in the attitude and environment because those factors can be changed. In the words of St. Francis, maybe we need to see through new eyes and “change what can be changed.” What are you willing to do to change inappropriate attitudes and environments for people who are blind? What are you willing to do to include people who are blind in your life and welcome them and treat them as people you want to know? Yes, some of us you may still not want to know, and I will be the first to agree with you. (Smiles!) Joyce Rogers is a resident of Covedale.

gram is fully expanded there will need to be six to 12 teachers for the programs at Delshire and Springmeyer. Cybulski said he estimated the best-case and worst-case scenarios for the costs of the program. Staffing costs could be $0 to $1.26 million, aide costs could be $90,000 to $150,000 and recruiting cost is estimated at $20,000. “There have been minimal costs to the district in terms of staffing so far. The $1.26 million is the worst case, if we have to hire three to six new teachers at all the buildings. We were charged with sharing the best to the worst-case scenarios,” Cybulski said. I find a disconnect here. Good stewardship of taxpayer funds and possibly spending an unknown amount on a program just doesn’t synch with me. My kids both graduated from Oak Hills and received great educations. The teachers were great and deserve it all. I have never voted against a school levy. But I find it difficult to reconcile the district asking for money while implementing a program where the costs are undetermined. Just asking … Mark Haller Green Township

Thank you, Ann Thank you, Ann Thompson, for having the courage to publicly state what I, and I hope many others, are privately
Ann, in what world are you living? In response to Ann Thompson’s question “What happened to American/family values?” I can only say: “In what world are you living?” Her comments RE: Trump and the new administration are talking points right out of the radical leftist playbook. It is documented that radicals have been paid/recruited by Democrats and Soros to riot. Excuse me, but the people who backed the Margaret Sanger eugenics operation are radical leftist globalists. Is she that unaware that Sanger’s goal was to eliminate the black race? Is she that unaware the Hillary R. Clinton was “honored” to accept the Sanger “award?” Is she unaware of the slaughter by “Doctor” Gosnell, whose office had baby remains piling up and the case against him not publicized? What dream world is she living in? Trump is this country’s last chance to push back against the massive corruption that has left the inner cities in their current state, that has eviscerated the middle class, has allowed encroachment by the undocumented up to even the boundaries of Green Township. I would recommend for her an alternate to the fake news of which she partakes. Jean Hodge Green Township

Lancers welcome McLaughlin to helm of football program Adam Baum email@example.com
Pat McLaughlin is headed back to the Greater Catholic League South. La Salle announced Feb. 10 that McLaughlin, who spent last season as the head coach at Princeton, will be the next head football coach on North Bend Road. “It was a hard decision, a decision that my family and I thought long and hard about,” said McLaughlin on a phone call as he headed to La Salle Friday afternoon. “We have developed great relationships at Princeton and there’s a lot of great people there, a lot of great kids there and only being there for a year made it a much tougher decision. But, going back to the GCL, the faith part of it, the allboys school part of it, was some-
thing we prayed a lot about and something I really envisioned myself being a part of for the rest of my career.” McLaughlin graduated from Moeller in 1996, then went on to play quarterback at the University of Dayton. McLaughlin began coaching as a graduate assistant at the University of Memphis, before becoming an assistant at Haywood High School (Tenn.) and eventually returning to Moeller as an assistant from 2006-14. Prior to this past season at Princeton, where he led the Vikings to a 6-4 season – the first winning season for Princeton since 2011 – McLaughlin was the head coach for two seasons at Reading. In three seasons as a head coach, McLaughlin’s combined coaching record is 19-12. At La Salle, he replaces Jim Hilvert, who recently left for the head
coaching job at Baldwin Wallace University. The Lancers have won three consecutive Division II state titles and are coming off the first outright GCL South title in school history. “It’s a great time (to be joining La Salle),” McLaughlin said. “(Principal) Aaron Marshall and (athletic director) Keith Pantling, what they’ve done with the program and the vision they have for the school, the football program, and just the school in general and the academic part of it, it just seems like La Salle is doing a lot of things right now to garner attention and football seems to be a part of it and I look to just continue to add onto the tradition.” McLaughlin informed his former Princeton players at a team meeting Friday. “I talked with Dr. Tucker to-
day, the superintendent at Princeton, Mr. Burton, Mr. Ogdan, the principal, and Gary Croley, the AD ... they’ve been phenomenal throughout the process. I’ll finish school at Princeton, then I’ll go over after school and do the lifting part at La Salle. I’ll start in the summer and start teaching at La Salle next year,” said McLaughlin. In short time, McLaughlin will find himself standing on the sideline facing his former team, the Crusaders. “Well, I guess it would be foolish to say I haven’t (thought about it), but I believe we play Colerain Week 1 and that will be our attention and focus all the way up until Week 1 and the rest of the season we’ll focus on one week at a time,” said McLaughlin.
La Salle High School introduced Pat McLaughlin as its next football coach on Feb. 10.

COLERAIN TWP. - Colerain High School is well known for its gridiron prowess year after year in fall, but not all the Cardinals head south when the winter winds roll through the Midwest. Some of those Cardinals, like Kerry Tepe, hit the water. Tepe, a senior who’s signed with Indiana State University, has qualified for the state swim meet each of the last two seasons, and this year, she’s going for three in a row. The last Cardinal to accomplish that feat was Lauren Weaver, a 2010 Col-
erain grad. “It’s kind of a big thing, especially at Colerain where we’re so football heavy, so for other sports to have state qualifiers is kind of like, ‘Oh,’” said Kerry. Stacey Tepe, Colerain’s head coach and Kerry’s mother, joked, “We have a swim team?” Kerry laughed, adding, “Cause I still get asked. It just means a lot since you’re from Colerain, because looking at Colerain, you don’t think of having state qualifiers in swimming.” Kerry started swimming at 8 years old. With both of her parents being swimmers and
her older sister dabbling in the water, Kerry decided to give it a go. “We've always had a pool in the backyard so I grew up swimming,” said Kerry. “My mom decided she would enroll me on the swim team here (Clippard YMCA); I joined here with Kim Peters as head coach when I was 8.” Five years after she took up swimming, Kerry started qualifying for national time cuts and last summer she made her first national final, but when it began she needed a little nudge. “It’s funny now,” said her mom, “when she first started
swimming, I knew she had some talent and it was very natural for her, but when she first started, she didn’t even want to compete. “When I first brought her here (YMCA), Kim Peters was coaching. We joined in like December and Kim saw some potential, too. In January, (Kim) was like, ‘She’s doing her first meet.’ And I was like, ‘well, you’re gonna have to talk to her about it because she doesn’t want to have anything to do with meets.’ Kim talked her into it and she started competing and did really well.” See TEPE, Page 2B

MONFORT HEIGHTS - For the fifth year in a row, La Salle High School’s bowling team won the Greater Catholic League South championship, and they did it in memorable fashion. The Lancers locked up the league title the last week of January, but they finished their league schedule with a win over Elder on Feb. 2, highlighted by a perfect 300 game from sophomore Jacob Toelke. According to seventhyear coach Hollis Haggard, Toelke’s 300 is the first in competition in La Salle history. “It was pretty much the icing on the cake for us,” Haggard said of Toelke’s performance. “It was against Elder and they were still trying to fight to get into second place.” Earlier this season in a GCL South quad match, the Lancers watched Elder’s Conner Brocker bowl a perfect game. “It was eerily similar to that kid from Elder,” said Haggard. “As a coach, I usually kind of walk around and help other guys, but I never left my spot where I was standing from the sixth frame on. It was just one of those things, it’s kind of superstitious, you don’t want to go down there and mess with his mojo.” Haggard’s had personal experience rolling a perfect a game, so he knew what was at stake and the pressure that mounts when chasing perfection. “I’m thinking how it was when I had my first one — ‘come on Jacob,

keep your feet slow, hit your mark and let the pins go as they are,’” Haggard recalled. “I’m thinking the same thing for him, trying to talk him through it in my own mind. Cause you never wanna say anything, just let them do what they do and hope nothing distracts them. “His first 11 strikes were pin-back, so when the bowling ball hit the pins they went straight back, nothing loose on the deck. It was 11 beautiful strikes. On the 12th ball, it was a really late 10-pin that went out last. We call it a scalp … the pin comes across and hits the side wall and just barely tapped the 10 pin and knocked it out. It felt like that strike took forever because of how late the 10pin fell.” Haggard said all eyes were on Toelke when he finished the feat. “I watched the video and man, watching how excited he was after the last one, he literally ran

Kerry’s also benefited the other half of Colerain’s dynamic duo — junior Hailee Trotter. The pair has both qualified to state together the last two years, and Kerry said the plan is to make it back to Canton. “We spend all our time together, basically,” said Tepe of Trotter. “I’ve taken her to and from practice for the last three years. We always hang out at meets; sometimes we swim the same events. We both push each other to be better and train harder.” Tepe said the pair joke about how next season after Tepe’s gone, Trotter will swim breaststroke and break all Tepe’s records. If everything falls in line, in a couple weeks, Kerry will put on that Cardinal swim cap for the final time. Stacey said it will certainly be emotional. “It will be weird,” said Stacey. “But I feel like Hailee’s a big part of our family and I still have Hailee; I’m not going any-
about four lances to the right after he let the ball go and the place just erupts because he’s essentially the only person bowling at that time,” said Haggard. “There’s 36 lanes and probably half are running at the time and nobody was bowling but him.” It was the perfect conclusion to another GCL South title. “This year I’d have to say we weren’t the most talented team in the league but my kids, they wanted it,” said Haggard. “They had the desire to win. I think that filters from our seniors. I have really good senior leadership.” Senior Zach Schott and Noah Kurtz led the Lancers’ charge. Kurtz was the GCL South’s top bowler in terms of average both in conference and non-conference matches with an overall 212.0 game average. Schott ranked second in the league with a 207 average, and Toelke was third with a 204.5. Haggard called Kurtz the team’s rock, while Schott brought emotion and consistency. “It’s so important to have seniors and to have them step up and be leaders,” Haggard said. The Lancers also benefited from Tyler Williams, Jonny Solszman and Michael Fields. With a conference title already in their bag, now La Salle turns its attention to the postseason. Haggard said the Lancers have advanced as a team from sectionals to districts in each of the last six seasons, but they’ve failed to make it up to state. The Division I sectional tournament is Feb. 23.
where coaching wise, I kind of think about that. “I’m emotional. I’m a nervous wreck. At districts the one year, she had the swim-off for the last spot at state her sophomore year. I was in tears. I didn’t even want to watch it. And she is a competitor, when it gets down to it she’ll race and she’ll pull it out. It’s hard sometimes being the mom and being the coach. I’m not just her coach and she’s not just my swimmer; she’s my daughter. “I’m very proud of her, swimming is a sport that teaches determination and dedication and responsibility and time management. It never stops. She gets like three weeks off a year. That’s it. We plan vacations around nationals. I’m very proud of her and all that she’s accomplished, not only in the pool but out of the pool. She’s at the top of her class. She should graduate summa (cum laude). She doesn’t mess around and she makes good choices. Her dad and I are very, very proud of her and what she’s done, the commitments she’s made and the sacrifices she’s made to do this.”

Sharonville PD meets certification requirements The Sharonville Police Department has adopted and implemented state standards established by the Ohio Collaborative Community-Police Advisory Board as part of the state’s efforts to strengthen community and police relations.
More than 400 agencies employing more than 23,000 officers (or 70 percent of all law enforcement officers in Ohio, including agencies and officers in most of Ohio’s metropolitan areas) are either certified or in the process of becoming certified by meeting standards for the use of force, including deadly force, and agency recruitment and hiring. The standards are the first of their kind in Ohio and were developed by the Collaborative in August 2015. The state has partnered with the Buckeye State Sheriffs’ Association and the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police to help certify Ohio’s nearly 1,000 law enforcement agencies on a process to ensure that they are in compliance with Ohio’s new standards. The first list of all Ohio compliant agencies will be published in March 2017. See BRIEFS, Page 4B

NEIGHBORS IN THE NEWS Wright takes new position at DPCR Springfield Township resident Larisa Wright has joined the DePaul Cristo Rey staff as full-time college success coordinator. DPCR may now be the only local high school with a full-time staff person dedicated to seeing its graduates successfully complete college. Wright’s role is to support the schoolwide goal that “all students will graduate from high school and college.” She serves as the main point of contact for all DPCR alumni who are in college – building relationships with them as well as with the colleges and universities they attend to ensure each student’s successful journey to college graduation. Her role with students begins while they are still enrolled at DPCR, and includes teaching lessons within the College Readiness class required of all students. The position was
created to assist mostly firstgeneration college students meet the challenges and opportunities they face during their higher educational experience. Wright has worked in higher education for the past Wright 10 years. Most recently she was the learning specialist coordinator for Miami University’s Scholastic Enhancement Program and had previously served as coordinator of multicultural affairs at the College of Mount St. Joseph, as a student support services graduate assistant at Wright State University, and as a resident assistant at Spelman College. She holds a bachelor’s degree in sports leadership and management from Miami University and a master’s degree in educational leadership from Wright State University.
2017 pollen and mold season begins The Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency provides a public service each year of counting and reporting local pollen and mold data. 2017 counts were scheduled to begin Feb. 13, weather dependent. Counts are performed Monday through Friday. The sampler is at the Agency’s office and it captures a sample one minute in each 10 minutes for a 24-hour period. The results are posted on the agency’s website and social media platforms. Residents who suffer from allergies may find the counts helpful for tracking symptoms that correspond with the prevalent allergens of that day. Molds tend to be more active during the wet, rainy periods of spring and again in the fall as nature decays before winter. “During late April and early May, we see a rise in pollen from hickory, pine, oak and walnut trees,” monitoring and analysis
supervisor Anna Kelley said. “Ragweed is the primary pollen allergen in the fall, usually appearing in late August through most of September.” There are steps allergy-sufferers can take to ease their symptoms. One of the easiest tactics is to avoid being outdoors in the morning when pollen counts tend to spike. It may be helpful to take a shower at the end of the day to remove pollen and mold from one’s hair and skin. Additional suggestions can be found in the Agency’s free, downloadable brochure, Living With Allergies. The Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency works with government agencies, businesses, communities and citizens to achieve and maintain healthy air quality for Southwest Ohio. For more information, visit the Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency online at SouthwestOhioAir.org or interact with us on Facebook and Twitter.
