BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

West Fork Road to be resurfaced By Jennie Key

jkey@communitypress.comds

Some residents yearning for spring will see a sure sign in their neighborhoods in coming days. Orange barrels, the official flower of road crews everwhere will begin blooming along Daly and West Fork roads as crews begin doing concrete work as part of a $1.1 million resurfacing project by the Hamilton County Engineer’s Office. The project will resurface just more than three miles of county roads in Cincinnati and Springfield, Green, Columbia and Symmes townships, and will include curb, gutter and catch basin work where it already exists. Streets included in the project are: Bilamy Court from Winton Road to the dead end;

This stretch of West Fork Road in Green Township is part of a $1 million resurfacing contract by the Hamilton County Engineer’s Office. Concrete work is set to begin April 7 and the project should be complete by the end of June. JENNIE KEY/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Camargo Road from the Cincinnati corporation line to the Madeira corporation line; Daly

Road from North Bend Road to the Cincinnati corporation line; Rich Road from Fallis Road to

Brentmour, and West Fork Road from North Bend Road to Gaines Road. Hamilton County Engineer Ted Hubbard said the county has several resurfacing project planned. For example Race Road is on the list, as is a section of Pippin Road. “We have a lot of streets that need attention,” Hubbard said. “But it costs money. We are only able to do so much at a time.”. The problem is money. “These projects are outrageously expensive,” Hubbard said. “But we have a lot of streets that need attention this year and we have to do what we can so we don’t fall too far behind.” This project is being paid for through the engineer’s office permissive auto tax, but Hubbard said the Ohio Public Works Commission issue on the May

ballot is important to communities like Hamilton County because the State Capital Improvement grants and loans that come from it help the county repair local streets. “We need that to pass,” he said. Chief Deputy Engineer Tim Gilday was at a preconstruction meeting for the West Fork/Daly project March 27. He said the contract was awarded to Barrett Paving Materials and the concrete work will begin on the west side roads April 7 with the asphalt work scheduled to begin in early May. The engineer’s office is trying to delay the Rich Road portion of the project near Loveland High School until after school is over. Gilday says the work should be finished by the end of June, weather permitting.

Station restoration is labor of love By Jennie Key jkey@communitypress.com

Green Township artist Diane Johnson found passion in the Passion this year, as she immersed herself in the restoration of 14 Daprato Stations of the Cross. Jesus is Condemned, Jesus Meets His Mother, Simon Carries the Cross... the story of Christ’s passion is set out, step by step, on the large plaques, used by Catholics and other Christians to meditate on the pain and suffering of the day of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion. The stations will hang in a chapel of the St. Thomas Aquinas Retreat Center and Camp in Mount Orab. The Rev. William Jenkins and The Rev. Joseph Greenwell, both from Immaculate Conception Church in Norwood, run the summer camp. Johnson is a member of the Immaculate Conception. When Greenwell saw a series of religious pictures she had painted for a competition, he

was impressed, and asked her to take on the repair and restoration of the stations he had stored in the church basement for more than a decade. Rescued from a church in Bay City, Mich., the stations were in terrible shape, she said, with peeling paint, missing corners and broken sculptural details as well as the mold and mildew.

“There was a lot to do,” she said. She did not set out to restore them to their original state. “Father had some ideas, and one of them was that he wanted them to be colorful,” she said. “The originals had a monochromatic color palette. I wanted something that would feel natural to the time, but would still bring color to the walls where they will hang. I am really pleased with

how they are turning out.” She said Greenwell checked the progress of the stations frequently. “I painted them in layers, and I did green under some of the figures,” she said. “He must have wondered what I thought I was doing at some stages of the process.” He is pleased with how the project is working out. “It is hard to imagine they

Adult charges in armed robbery likely for teen Hamilton County prosecutors want to try a 16-year-old boy as an adult after he was charged with pointing a gun at an officer March 28, prompting police to shoot him. The teen’s left hand was encased in a cast from the gunshot wound when he made a brief court appearance March 31 on an aggravated robbery charge. Hamilton County Juvenile Court Magistrate David Kelley decided the teen will remain locked up without bond at the county juvenile jail at least until an April 10 hearing. Detectives from the Colerain Township Police Department were attempting to arrest suspects March 28 who had allegedly committed two armed robberies in the township over the past several days, Colerain Township Police Chief Mark Denney said. The Special Investigative Unit detectives arranged a meeting with a female suspect on Oak Knoll Drive in North College Hill at about 2:20 p.m. that afternoon. “As she approached one of the detective’s vehicles, a male subject appeared displaying a firearm,” Denney said. The male got into the back of a detective’s car and pointed the .45-caliber handgun at his head. “The detective was able to bail from the car, and the female and male suspects ran away from the scene,” Denney said. As he ran, two other Colerain police officers who were coming to the aid of the detectives confronted him.

You must be registered to vote by Monday, April 7, to cast a ballot in the May 6 primary election.FILE PHOTO,

Early voting is under way in Hamilton County The May 6 primary election is almost here, and voters in Hamilton County will have the opportunity to begin voting this month to nominate party candidates for statewide and judicial offices to appear on the ballot Nov. 4.

Hamilton County has a renewal of its 4.13-mill levy to pay for mental retardation and developmental disabilities programs. The state is looking for approval to continue selling bonds to help pay for improvements to roads and bridges, waste water treatment systems, water supply systems, solid waste disposal facilities,

One of the officers fired his weapon – a Sig Sauer 9 mm handgun – and the armed suspect was struck in the hand. As he was struck, he dropped his gun. The juvenile was then arrested and transported to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, Denney said. He was later released. The situation Friday was similar to the circumstances of both armed robberies for which the suspects were wanted, incident reports show. On the afternoon of March 25, a male victim went to meet a woman and purchase a $200 phone from her which she had posted on Craigslist, according to the incident report. The woman came out of the agreed meeting place at 2350 W. Galbraith Road when he arrived and asked him to come in. When he declined, she told him she would go get the phone and bring it to him. The woman got into the victim’s passenger seat when she returned, according to the report. He leaned forward and felt guns pressed on the back of his neck. Two men told the victim to give him everything he had, so he handed over the $200 he had brought for the phone. The female got out of the car, and then men told the victim to leave. The victim drove away without being injured. On the evening of March 26, a different male victim went to 2340 W. Galbraith Road, intrating vacation Bible school curriculum, children’s books, and did freelance books. She also taught art at Antonelli College and Chatfield College. When that work slowed, then stopped, she rededicated herself to painting. She is also partnering with Colerain Township residents David and Patricia Hendy Bowling and illustrator Diane Johnson on a comic book project, “WASP vs Killer Bees.” The first installment of the story, “In Thee Beginning” told the story of how the Strange Humans and an army of super-powered Killer Bees have a big plan for world domination. The trio is now working on the second book. Her work on the stations is a big departure

tending to respond to a Craigslist ad for a $500 laptop, according to the incident report. He was in contact via phone with a woman who claimed to be the seller. The woman was standing in the parking lot of the arranged meeting place when the victim pulled in, according to the report. She went inside to get the laptop, or so she said, and returned with a bag. She went around and opened the passenger door, and two armed men approached the victim. The men demanded everything the victim had and he complied, according to the report. The three then fled with the victim’s phone and wallet. He was later released. The officer who discharged his gun was placed on administrative leave for 72 hours, as is policy. The Criminal Investigative Section of the Cincinnati Police Department will conduct an investigation into the shooting since Colerain police requested an independent investigation. An assistant from the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office will also review the incident, as is typical in officer-involved shootings, Denney said. The Colerain Township Police Department will also conduct an investigation involving their policies surrounding an officer using force while on duty.

from the light-hearted whimsy of the comic book project. Johnson says the Daprato stations have been challenging from an artistic and a personal perspective. “I had no idea how affecting the work would be,” she said. “I watched the Passion of the Christ movie as part of my preparation. And then to be so close to it every day, you can’t help but feel it. I have been struck hard by the idea that his life wasn’t taken from him, but rather he laid it down.” She says Easter will have a new meaning to her this year, as she has traveled the painful road of the Passion since October. The stations will be blessed and unveiled in the chapel at St. Thomas this summer.

2014 HIGH SCHOOL TRACK AND FIELD PREVIEW

Northwest’s Knights hope to shine on the track once again By Tom Skeen

tskeen@communitypress.com

Rain has delayed the start of the high school track season, but that just gives you - the reader more time to get to know how things are shaping up for the season. So, here’s a preview of how the teams in the Northwest Press coverage are looking in 2014:

Colerain

Jeff Woltz enters his sixth season as coach of Cardinals. Ryan Williamson returns after qualifying for the regional meet in the high jump last season. In the sprint events, Jordan Asberry is back after finishing sixth in the 100-meter dash at regionals as a sophomore. Marcus Price will run the middle-distance events, while Nate Sizemore is back in the distance events. Erin Sherrer leads the Lady Cards from the thrower position after locking up top 10 finishes in both the shot put and discus last season at regionals. She takes over a leadership role left open after the graduation of Kristen Seiler who is now at Butler University. Look for freshmen Hayley Meyer and Aliyah Lingo to make an immediate impact in the distance events. “Our boy’s sprinters and relays should be good,” Woltz said. “We have a lot coming back. We also have some really good female throwers. I am also excited to see what our young distance runners can do.”

La Salle

Senior Tim Bell headlines a Lancer team that won its fourth straight Greater Catholic League title in 2013. Bell owns the school record in the long jump and was both the GCL and district champion in the event last season on his way to earning GCL Field Events Athlete of the Year honors. According to coach Frank Russo, Bell is being recruited by Ohio State, the University of Cincinnati, Akron and Kent State. Bell is also a part of both the 4x100- and 4x200-meter relay teams, who both finished fifth at regional’s last season. Adam Franklin, Tyler Harmon and Jeff Larkin all return to roundout the two relay teams who will likely be state contenders in 2014. Sophomore Jeremy Larkin also returns and will make an impact on the relay teams as well as in individual action as well. The addition of football players Luke Doerger and Jordan Thompson will strengthen the field side of things for Russo, as both will join the team as throwers in both the discus and shot put events. After a couple rainouts early the season, the Lancers continue 2014 on the track April 9 at Fairfield High School for the Coaches Classic.

headlines a trio of distance runners that includes senior Kate Olding and sophomore Sydney Kreimer. The trio, along with freshman Kirsten Goldick makeup a 4x800-meter relay team that has proven to be McAuley’s strongest suit over the past five years. The 4x800 relay has made the podium three straight years in Columbus at the state meet, including a third-place finish last season. “We’ve started a tradition in the 4x800 here at McAuley,” Russo said. “Last year nobody even thought we’d make it; we were sixth at the Coaches Classic. People wrote us off and the next thing you know we’re second in the conference, second at districts, second at regionals and third in the state.” Pfeifer also finished ninth in the state in the 800 and will lend her hand to the 1,600 this season. Joining her in the 1,600 likely will be Olding – who Russo says can run anything from the 400 to the 3,200 – and Kreimer who will run in the 400-and 800-meter races as well. Look for Sydney Lambert to anchor the sprint races for Russo, while Kristen Clark and Katie Baum will run the sprint hurdle (100 meters). Clark will find herself on the 4x100 and 4x200 relay teams as well. Sophomore Gabby Draginoff and Faith Waters will run the 300 hurdles, while sophomore Anna Sontag will be Russo’s top middle-distance runner. In the field events look for big things from junior Frankie Harris (shot put), senior Katie Weierman (discus) and senior Marissa Mallios (high jump)

Dobbs will also again compete in the long jump where she was a regional qualifier last season. Gutter notched a ninth-place finish at state in the 200 during her sophomore campaign. She will also be a forced to be reckoned with in the 300 hurdles as she’s already running in the 48’s, a mark she didn’t hit until midseason in 2013. Sophomore Pan Okonny and senior Lilly Bryant will make-up the 4x100 relay team alongside Dobbs and Gutter.

Junior thrower Nadiya Pope is just two feet shy of breaking the school record in the discus. “With the success in the program in the past three years, I am confident that we will again have a strong speed base for the team,” Spence said.

Lori Spence begins her fourth as coach of the Knights and coached the boys’ team to an 11th-place finish at state last season, which included a state championship by the 4x100-meter relay team. Junior DeVohn Jackson is the lone member of that relay team that still remains, but Jackson plans to be back in Columbus in June after finishing seventh in the state in the 100-meter dash as a sophomore. Jackson currently holds three school records. Joining Jackson is junior high jumper and middle-distance runner Miles Pringle, the versatile Mylan Baldwin and long jumper and hurdler Malik Beverly. Junior Justin Bergquist is the top thrower heading into the season, while fellow junior Deion Goins is coming off a Southwest Ohio Conference title in the long jump.

Hall returns after capturing a district and regional title in the 1,600 last season. Hall was also part of the 4x800 relay team that that finished third at state in 2013. Three quarters of the relay team is back and is expected to be comprised of Hall, junior Michael Vitucci, junior Brad Eagan and senior Jax Talbott. Talbott was part of the team throughout the 2013 season but was replaced by Eagan at the state meet. With the graduation of Jake Grabowski, both are expected to run the event this season. Vitucci finished behind Hall in the 1,600 at districts and regional’s while notching a ninthplace finish at state. Senior Zach Lynett returns after finishing 14th in the state in the 300 hurdles in 2013. Look for junior sprinter Ron Fricke and senior hurdler Andrew Racadio to contribute this season as well.

BOYS HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL PREVIEW

Ferris hopes depth proves key for St. Xavier By Tom Skeen tskeen@communitypress.com

The 2014 boys’ volleyball season is underway. Here’s a look at how the teams in the Hilltop Press are shaping up:

La Salle

The Lancers are off to a 2-3 start under coach Wes Post. Post’s team is led by seniors Jason Schuler (setter), Jack Goldschmidt (outside hitter), Adam Moeller (right outside hitter), Alex Brutz Dahm (middle hitter) and Alban Schneider (outside hitter). Freshman Will Goldschmidt has made an immediate impact along with sophomore Joe Walden and junior William Frey.

Roger Bacon

A 2-3 start (as of April 3) isn’t exactly what coach Adam Goller wanted, but he understands it isn’t how you start; it’s about how you finish. The Spartans opened the season with a four-set loss to St. Xavier, followed by a win over Monroe, but then lost back-to-back matches to McNicholas and Bishop Fenwick. “It’s been an exceptionally difficult schedule so far, but we’re a marathon team,” Goller said. “We

understand this is a process and we’re working to better that every day in practice. We’re looking to turn our effort in practice into the games and when that happens I think we’ll be just fine.” Junior Bobby Wilking is back at outside hitter where he is looking to fill the big shoes of Erik Edwards who graduated last year. “Bobby had big shoes to fill and he’s embraced the opportunity,” Goller said. “He’s absolutely a leader and we’re happy about that because he’s definitely the guy to do that.”

Senior Max Bishop is back at setter where he is joined by right outside hitter Robby Heywood and defensive specialists Alex Brenner and Steven Post. Junior Jack Hausfeld is back after seeing a minimal amount of varsity playing time last season but is making “good progress” this season according to Goller. The slow start is something the Spartans aren’t used to, but the three-time defending Greater Catholic League Central champions aren’t backing down just yet according to their coach.

“These guys go through very difficult practices and we sort of foster that winner’s mentality here at Roger Bacon along with that confident approach.”

St. Xavier

Bill Ferris has his Bombers off to a 3-0 start in what is his 13th year as coach at St. X. An up and down 2013 led many members of the 2014 squad to pick up some playing time which is coming in handy about now for Ferris. “This team has more depth than most I have coached and this leads to

very productive practices and great flexibility in matches,” the coach said. “All the guys want to compete and earn their spot and once it is earned they have to continue to compete to keep it. I think this gives us an excellent opportunity to continue to improve throughout the year.” Senior libero Brian Dahm leads the juniorand senior-heavy team. Dahm earned second-

team All-GCL honors last season. Fellow senior Robert Ryan, along with juniors Patrick Beer (setter), Nick Talbot (outside hitter) and Eric Spoelker (middle hitter) headline Ferris’ roster. Look for senior outside hitter Connor Skelly, senior defensive specialist Dan Menard and senior outside hitter Michael Schwarz to have an impact as well.

“With the addition of the MLK holiday in 1983 there are already more than enough national holidays (10 or so). Opening day varies from team to team. I would rather see the Reds (at least) have their opening day on a Sunday around 4pm. This allows for better parking, school kids can see the parade and go to the game. With that in place there would be little need for another superfluous holiday. Go Figure!”

T.D.T.

“As the Reds are the oldest professional baseball organization in American history, going back to 1869, if this were to officially happen Cincinnati would be a good place to try it out as a local holiday. Whether or not you’re a baseball fan you have to admit that.”

“I think this is a very good idea. Baseball is king in this city and we take this day every year to honor that.”

OHR

“I’m not really sure if other cities celebrate Opening Day in the same fashion as Cincinnati. There is a lot of activity that is exhibited on Opening Day from early morning and till late in the evening. I know the stadium only seats approximately 40,000, but many many more take off work that day, due to sickness or whatever, and boost our economy by frequenting a local establishment somewhere to watch on TV. I also understand that Opening Day causes some of the highest absenteeism within our school systems, and possibly the lowest production within most companies. Did you ever try to get anything done with a local or county office on this day? “ I know when I was working, we always had a TV and refreshments for our customers in the lobby and had the employees dress in their Reds garb. This is a day of enjoyment and socializing amongst thousands of people, and if we can’t do this just for one day, maybe we should just keep on as is and continue to play hooky.”

posal for now, because every one of our carriers is critical to project American power around the globe. As a member of Congress, and as an American, the thing I find so frustrating about this president is that he’s fine throwing money at bloated stimulus packages, welfare programs, and the bottomless pit of Obamacare; but when it comes to our one critical government expenditure, our nation’s defense, he grabs a chainsaw and cuts away. It’s wrong-headed, it’s short-sided, and it’s dangerous. The purpose of a strong defense is having it ready if we need it. But even more importantly, a strong defense, ideally, avoids military action altogether, because potential enemies fear the consequences of initiating aggression. Peace through strength. Fortunately, Congress will have to approve President Obama’s proposed defense cuts. He won’t get my vote, but with this president, we have to be prepared for the possibility that he tries to circumvent the law, and the Constitution, and act by executive order.

Some Bengal fans favored the tax because they figured that with more money coming in, the Bengals would be able to hire better players. Afterwards, fans discovered that just because the Bengals had more money was no guarantee they’d spend it on players. Today, 23 NFL teams receive incentives, so this money mostly just drives up salaries rather than getting anyone better players. We were over a barrel in 1996 but it’s time to vacate the winery. Let’s abolish incentives altogether – at least at the state and local level. The First Amendment of the US Constitution says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion...” Countless court cases have worked out exactly what those words mean in the relationship between government and churches. It is just my own idea, but I suggest a Constitutional Amendment that reads, “The states shall make no law respecting an establishment of business.” They’ll know what we mean.

60 YEARS WITH BUDDY

By Cliff Radel

cradel@enquirer.com

B

uddy LaRosa couldn’t sleep the night before. He was opening – 60 years ago last month – his first pizzeria. The tiny Westwood restaurant he saw as “a little hole in the wall” on Boudinot Avenue spawned an empire of 63 locations. That empire has launched an emporium’s worth of 15 different products under the LaRosa’s brand name, from olive oil and frozen ravioli to salad dressings and, coming in April to a grocery store near you, jars of the family recipe that started the hometown chain, Buddy’s Aunt Dena’s pizza sauce. LaRosa may not have been able to sleep that night. But he dreamed big. “I dreamed of success,” he said last week as he recalled events surrounding that long ago opening day: March 24, 1954. “I never dreamed of failure. I’ve always thought positive. I wanted to create something I could be proud of, something that would last.” That’s Buddy. The man Greater Cincinnati knows by his nickname – his given name is Donald – and his pizza (LaRosa’s holds a commanding 35 percent slice of the market) is always striving, always upbeat, always positive. “Every day I remind myself of my father’s positive attitude,” said Buddy’s son, Michael LaRosa, the chain’s CEO. “I don’t care what happens, how bad things get, he has the most positive attitude about life. And he has boundless energy.” His father raised his hand and softly asked for permission to interrupt. “If Mrs. LaRosa were alive,” Buddy said, “she would call that energy ‘the LaRosa craziness.’ ” He smiled and lowered his head after mentioning his late wife, JoJo. The shy one in their partnership and marriage, she stayed in the kitchen 60 years ago while Buddy worked the front of the house when they first opened for business. JoJo LaRosa passed away in 2011. Her death still hurts Buddy’s 83year-old heart. To this day, when he talks about her, he can’t call her by name. Michael LaRosa resumed singing his father’s praises: “I will never be his equal. I want to expand the business to Columbus and south to Tennessee before I hang up my apron. But I know there’s only one Buddy LaRosa. He’s one of those American icons who came up from nothing, worked hard and made a difference.” Mark LaRosa, Michael’s younger brother and the firm’s president and chief culinary officer, sang a second

chorus: “He’s so giving and involved with the community.” (LaRosa and his restaurant managers appear as if they never met a charity they didn’t aid.) “He’s a perfectionist. Everything he does has to be 110 percent.” Under his breath, Buddy recited one of his mantras: “When a task is before you, do it well or not at all.” Nick LaRosa, Michael’s son, the only one of Buddy’s 15 grandchildren to go into the business and the chain’s executive director of business intelligence, added: “I have three great role models in a very special family filled with real stories and real examples to show me the right way to do things.” The four LaRosas, representing a 160 years in the pizza business, sat at the stainless steel counter of Mark’s stateof-the-art test kitchen. His unmarked hideaway faces the flagship location of the LaRosa’s empire. A plaque and a photo in the restaurant’s lobby mark the spot where the first pizzeria stood and its opening date. Plans for the 60th anniversary celebration are low-key. Customers stopping by Monday will receive a free cookie. The pizza sauce appears in stores in April. The staff is wearing commemorative T-shirts with the slogan “Celebrating 60 years, 1954-2014” and the company’s Luigi mascot on the front and the LaRosa logo atop “Thanks Buddy” on the back. “We’re keeping it simple,” said Michael LaRosa. “That’s because the Reds had too many games with 11 strike-

outs,” Buddy added. “There’s not much left in the giveaway budget.” For the past two seasons, LaRosa’s hosted a “strikeouts for slices” promotion during Reds home games. When the home team’s pitchers struck out 11 or more batters, everyone at the ballpark could go to any LaRosa’s restaurant and turn in a ticket stub for a free, small, four-topping pizza. In 2012, LaRosa’s gave away 119,451 of them. In 2013, with Reds pitchers mowing down the opposition, that figure jumped to 225,054 pies. “The average retail value for those pizzas exceeded $1 million both years,” Michael LaRosa said. “But we’re still going to do it this year,” Buddy added. “It reminds people that the ingredients of our pizzas pop into their mouths.” He ran down the list of his pizzas’ basics: Rich cheese with a high butterfat content for taste and mouth appeal, “tomatoes that have a pedigree, and top-quality flour for our dough.” Mentioning the flour transported Buddy back to his restaurant’s 1954 opening. The weather: “Cool in the morning (33 degrees) and warm in the afternoon (66). A typical Cincinnati March day.” His first customer: “An attorney, Richard Curry. He had to walk on planks to get in. They were widening the street. There was mud everywhere. And no parking.” The first purchase: “Pizza, of course. Sold 30 pies that day. They were 85 cents each and one size, medium. Our biggest seller was the one with pepperoni.” That cost 95 cents. LaRosa’s restaurants

sold more than 6 million pies in 2013. A medium pepperoni remains the best seller, accounting for 25 percent of all pizzas sold. Now, it costs $10.24. The first pizza came with his Aunt Dena’s sauce, the same recipe that’s still ladled onto the dough. “We had a summer festival at our church, San Antonio in South Fairmount, in 1953. We put Aunt Dena’s sauce on the pizza. I manned the booth and watched all sorts of people eat her pizza. That’s when I decided: ‘Forget about the banana business and peddling produce, I’m going to open a pizza shop.’ ” In addition to his memories, Buddy has one memento from that first day in business: A tin can that once held 48 pounds of Partridge brand lard. He keeps the can, its yellow and red colors still glossy, in his test kitchen, “my clubhouse.” That’s between Mark LaRosa’s test site and the flagship restaurant. “I cleaned the can up real good and would bring my dough to the restaurant every morn-

ing,” Buddy said. “I couldn’t afford a mixer,” he explained. A commercial-grade dough mixer cost $5,000. He had sunk his life savings, $400, into the business. “So I went to the German baker, Mr. Yaeger, in our Italian neighborhood on Queen City Avenue and asked him to make the dough for me.” Every night he would drop off the can at 10 p.m. Every morning, he’d pick up the can filled with dough. “I

did that for three or four years until I could afford a mixer.” He put his arms around the can and held it tight. “I was always taught to take care of things,” he said. The same goes for people. “I love what I do for a living,” Buddy explained as he thought back over 60 years in the pizza business. “It’s like serving others. It’s a blessing.”

APRIL 9, 2014 • NORTHWEST PRESS • B3

Sharing a hot cross bun recipe and an Easter holiday legend

I may be jinxing myself, but I think we’ve finally transitioned into spring. The last few days have convinced me, and in our little patch of woods, I’m seeing true harbingers: watercress in our spring fed pool and trilliums, bloodroot, anemones and spring beauties all poking up through the leaves. The dandelions and wild onions are all over the place. Both nutritious wild edibles. Meanwhile, we’re gearing up for Easter. One of my favorite yeast buns to make is hot cross buns. Now these aren’t extremely sweet, like a sweet roll (they’re a bun, remember), but just sweet enough to really enjoy with a cup of tea or glass of milk. Legend has it that if you make yeasted hot cross buns for Good Friday and hang one up in the kitchen, you’ll have success with anything you make with yeast all year ‘round. That won’t be happening at my house! Let the kids help Granddaughter Eva loved making the cross decoration. You can also simply use the icing as a glaze over the whole bun.

Buns

1 pkg. (1/4 oz.) active dry yeast, regular or rapid rise 1 tablespoon plus 1/2

Divide into 12 portions. Shape into balls. Place in sprayed or buttered 13x9 pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden. Mine were done at 25 minutes.

cup sugar, divided 1 cup warm milk (110° -115°) 1/4 cup softened butter Rita Couple Heikenfeld dashes salt 1/2 to 1 RITA’S KITCHEN cup raisins 1 large egg, room temperature 3-1/2 to 3-3/4 cups allpurpose flour Preheat oven to 375. In mixer bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 tablespoon sugar in warm milk. Let stand for 5 minutes. It will foam up. Add butter, raisins, egg, salt and remaining sugar; beat until smooth. On low speed, pour in enough flour to form soft dough - I used 3-1/2 cups. Turn onto very lightly floured surface (not too much flour or buns will be tough); knead until smooth like a baby’s bottom, about 5 minutes. I used the dough hook so avoided hand kneading and extra flour. Place in sprayed or buttered bowl, turning once to coat top. Bless dough! Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, 1 hour or more. Stick a finger in gently, if indentation remains, you’re good to go; if it springs back, it needs to raise more. Punch dough down.

Icing

Whisk together: 2 cups confectioner’s sugar 1 tablespoon vanilla 4 tablespoons water or more if needed. Make a cross shape on each bun.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen:

Raising in frig: As an experiment, I divided dough in half and let half raise at room temperature and half in frig, covered, overnight. The dough from the frig took longer to raise, but both batches came out great.

Hawaiian roll clone

Hot cross buns: Make them, and hang one up in the kitchen to ensure success in future yeast recipes.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Leave out raisins and icing and you have a roll that, to me, tastes like store-bought Hawaiian rolls. The crust is not as soft, but the sweet flavor is there!

bread machine yeast. All easy to use!

Yeasty flavor in breads: Lois B. has a friend who wants to know how to make the flavor of yeast more prominent in her baked goods. Using regular, not rapid rise may help. Any suggestions from bakers in our Community circle of friends? Applebee’s hot bacon dressing. Wanda R. has

Is it fresh?

To make sure your yeast can still leaven, add a little to some warm water with a pinch of sugar. It should foam up within minutes. If not, toss it. Yeast kept in freezer stays fresh longer.

Yeast basics

Back in the old days yeast came in the form of moist little cakes and had to be refrigerated. Now we can buy dry yeast in the store. It comes in many forms, from regular yeast to rapid rise to

Cincinnati Observatory hosting Mars-a-palooza By Lisa Wakeland

lwakeland@communitypress.com

It only happens once every 26 months. That’s when Mars makes its closest pass to Earth — a mere 57.4 million miles away — and the Cincinnati Observatory is planning a celebration for the return of the red planet. It will look like a bright, reddish star to the naked eye, but citizens can get an up-close view, thanks to the telescopes at the Mt. Lookout campus, 3489 Observatory Place. Cincinnati Observatory’s Outreach Astronomer Dean Regas said they’ve been hosting “Mars-a-palooza” for a little more than a decade. From 9-11 p.m. Thursday, April 10, to Saturday, April 12, they’ll have programs about Mars, tours of the building and open the two historic telescopes, which date to 1843 and 1904, respectively. “We’re a real unique place, and a lot of people have never been here, so there is always the big ‘wow’ factor when they look through the telescope,” Regas said. “We want to give them their first good experience with astronomy.” Mars-a-palooza costs $7 per person, and the moon and Jupiter are also

Reservations are recommended for the Thursday and Friday sessions because Regas said they’ll likely be smaller groups to give participants more time with the telescopes.
