Street list

Green Township is scheduled to repair 14 streets throughout the township this summer as part of the 2011 Street Rehabilitation Program. The board of trustees approved a resolution Monday, March 14, to authorize Green Township Public Services Director Fred Schlimm to advertise for bids for this year’s program. Schlimm said the estimated cost to renovate 14 streets this summer is about $1.5 million. He said the number of township streets being repaired this year is down from last year. The township renovated 26 streets as part of the 2010 street rehabilitation program. “We’re spending the same amount of money, but we’re just not seeing that $1.5 million go as far as it used to,” Schlimm said. He said higher oil prices have caused asphalt prices to jump, and liquid asphalt is more expensive this year as well. Some of the township streets in need of repair this summer are quite long, which is also a factor for why fewer streets are on the list this year, he said. “We do as many streets as we can,” he said. Each year Schlimm and his

The following streets are scheduled for repair as part of Green Township’s 2011 Street Rehabilitation Program: Beecherfalls Court Berauer Road Charity Drive Edgebrook Drive Elkwater Court Eula Avenue (from Moonridge to Edgebrook) Farlook Drive staff inspect all the township’s streets and determine which will receive repairs based on a point system rating the pavement conditions. Schlimm “We drive each and every street in the township,” he said. The streets slated for repair this year are located in Bridgetown, Mack, Western Hills and White Oak. Streets will get new curbs where needed, and in instances where more than 60 percent of the curbs on a street need to be repaired all the curbs on the street will be renovated. Schlimm said the township is using tax increment financing

0% APR $ 4,500 ,

La Grange Lane Linsan Drive Oakhaven Drive Ridgedale Drive Southknoll Drive Wynnburne Avenue Wynnburne Drive (TIF) dollars to fund this year’s program. Residents should not expect any detours or major delays during the work, just the typical minor disruptions associated with road construction. “Generally, work starts around mid-May and we try to have all the construction completed by Halloween,” Schlimm said. In addition to the street rehabilitation program, Green Township will also completely reconstruct Blue Bird Lane as part of a separate project. The township is receiving a grant from the State Capital Improvement Program to pay for 50 percent of the reconstruction project, which Schlimm said should begin in early July.

Area schools got two more snow days for the school year, as Gov. John Kasich signed a bill April 7 that expands the number of calamity days to five. Schools districts were limited to three Handler calamity days in the school year under former Gov. Ted Strickland, and a number of local districts had been forced to schedule make-up days at the end of school year because they had exceeded that three-day maximum. The bill also adds a provision that school districts can make up time in half-hour increments rather than mandating full days In the Mount Healthy City School District, Superintendent Lori Handler said her district used four calamity days this year. She said the passage of the bill will allow school to end as scheduled June 1. The bill helped the district avoid a sticky situation, as seniors were set to graduate June 1. “This worked out well for us,” Handler said. “And the new legislation allows us to make up the time in half-hour increments, so that gives us more options in the future. We are prudent about calling snow days, but I am not going to take a chance with the safety of our staff and students.” The Northwest Local School District had used five days and had designated April 22 and June 3 as make up days. For most of the school buildings in the district, those days are canceled and there will be no classes. Because of a power outage, Pleasant Run Middle School had an additional calamity day and students and staff will report to school on Friday, June 3, for their final day of school. This will be an Early Release Day and students will be dismissed at 1:25 p.m. Pauletta Crowley, administrative assistant for community and administrative services for the district, said Pleasant Run Middle School Principal David Maine has been communicating with staff, students and parents and the makeup day should not come as a surprise to anyone.

White Oak man killed changing tire


Eatin’ it up

Pyramid Clay, 11, of Colerain Township, gets congratulated by Rosie Red after winning the 7-year-old-and-up division of the United Dairy Farmers sundae eating contest at Findlay Market.

Gannett News Service As a point guard who twice helped lead the Northern Kentucky University men’s basketball team to NCAA Division II national title games in the late 1990s, Shannon Minor was respected for his gym-rat hustle. His father, 66-year-old Peter Minor, was showing that same dependable work ethic in the early morning hours of April 8, when, on his way to his postretirement job, the elder Minor had a flat tire and was changing it along southbound Interstate 71/75, near I-275. That’s when another vehicle left the southbound lanes and hit his vehicle, killing him at the scene. “My dad died doing what he always did every day, and that’s go to work,” said Shannon Minor, who now lives in Taylor Mill. “He never missed work,” the son said. “He was retired, but where he (had) worked for 35 years, he missed three days in 35 years. My dad was the kind of guy who wouldn’t call AAA to come change his tire. He’d want to change it himself to save $50, $100 – he was very handy. And I’m the total opposite – I would have called AAA.” Peter Minor, of White Oak, was on his way to Beckfield College in Florence where he did maintenance and

custodial work. Before retiring he worked as an equipment inspector and painter for Henkel-Emery Industries in St. Bernard. “The thing about my dad people remember is he never missed a game – high school or college – of mine. Never,” said Shannon Minor, who played basketball for North College Hill High School and later Colerain High School. “They always did stories on my dad and I, about our special bond we had with each other, and how he would come over after work every night, we would shoot, and he would rebound for me,” the son said. “So he was instrumental in helping me athletically but also just instilling that discipline in me to be a special person.” The other vehicle left the scene at about 4 a.m. without stopping, police said. Erlanger officers have located a gray 2001-2007 Toyota Sequoia last seen driving southbound on the interstate but no arrests had been made at press time. Shannon Minor now teaches for the Kenton County school system and coaches sixth grade boys’ basketball at Summit View Middle School in Independence. Just like his father, he

coaches his own kids in basketball. “I remember everything my dad taught me, so what I’ve got to do is try to pass that along to the kids that I teach, the kids that I coach and my own kids,” Shannon Minor said. “He’s prepared me. I’m ready now.” Peter Minor typically worked from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., but took Shannon to a gym or outside to rebound for him afterward. Ken Shields, who was the men’s basketball coach while Shannon was at NKU, says the most striking thing about Peter Minor was his dedication to Shannon, wife Jennie and daughter Carrie. “He never missed a game throughout his high school and collegiate career,” Shields said. “He traveled to North Dakota, to Puerto Rico. He went everywhere. He was just a clean-livin’ man; I don’t think he ever had a drink in his life.” Shannon Minor was inducted in to NKU’s Hall of Fame in February, and is delighted his father witnessed that. After he graduated from NKU in 1997, “as the years went by that was the one thing I always was worried about: ‘I hope I can get in before something would ever happen to my dad.’ So I did. It happened in February.”

Two dozen horses die in barn fire Gannett News Service Firefighters battled a pole barn fire at Oasis Farms last week that killed 24 horses. Flames from the accidental fire were first reported at 5:20 a.m. April 5 and shot 20 to 30 feet from the ridge of the barn’s green corrugated steel roof. The first firefighters on the scene came from Colerain Township’s Engine 102, based at the Dunlap Station. The fire crew immediately went into animal rescue mode. There was no time to lay any lengths of 5inch hose. The closest fire hydrant was 2,500 feet away. The firefighters and Oasis’ owners saved 16 Arabian show horses, including two which were critically injured and transported to local veterinary hospitals. Once the blaze was out, investigators began their work. At the working end of the barn, where bags of feed, piles of sawdust, carriages and leather saddles were stored, they combed through the still-smoldering debris looking for what triggered the early morning fire. And they found it. A calf was in the barn. The newborn’s stall was heated by a warming light, said Capt. Darian Edwards. “The light fell over and landed in the straw that was lining the stall. The straw caught fire.” Initial damage estimates placed the loss of the barn at $300,000. Placing a dollar amount on the horses is more difficult. The Arabian Horse Association in Aurora, Colo.,

The association’s website lists 2,488 horses priced from $1,500 to $35,000. A breeze carrying drops of rain and the occasional snowflake wafted the acrid smell of burned hair, flesh and wood toward the farm’s gate. Anne Johnson of Sunman, Ind., longtime-friend


of Deb Crosby, Oasis’ coowner, shuddered at the smell. “I’ve known Debbie since I was 16,” Johnson said. “She sold me my first horse. The horse was named Frosty. But I changed it to Risky Business. “She’s been doing this, raising, breeding, showing and boarding Arabian horses,” Johnson added, since 1976. “This isn’t a job for her,” she added. “This is Debbie’s life. She’s devastated by this fire.” As Johnson spoke, friends, neighbors, relatives and horse owners trudged up the winding driveway to the old frame farmhouse that was restored and enlarged by Crosby’s father. Her husband, Frank Noll, stood by the house. He

exchanged hugs with the visitors. Edgar, Karri Bruskotter’s horse, survived. JB, a horse Bruskotter bred, did not. “They loved being here,” said Bruskotter, a veterinarian from Oxford. “Deb Crosby showed these horses so much love. She cared for them as if they were her own. In fact, many of the horses that did not survive belonged to Deb.’’ Crosby and Noll’s 18year-old daughter, Sarah, approached Johnson. They exchanged hugs. Sarah Noll looked toward the corral and a tarp covering one of the horses killed in the blaze. She quickly looked away. “Horses didn’t die here,” she said. “They are family members.”


Twenty-four horses died in a fire at Oasis Farms, a horse breeding farm on Dunlap Road in rural Colerain Township April 5. The blaze was started by a warming heater in the stables.

McAuley student accepts scholarship

McAuley High School senior Samantha Morrissey was selected as one of three recipients of a $6,000 scholarship from the Sue Ruehl Memorial Foundation. This award was presented by Dave Ruehl and his children at Our Lady of Victory Parish. To qualify for the scholarship, a student had to have been affected by cancer in some way and submit three essays on subjects relating to their experiences. Morrissey wrote about her personal physical struggle with cancer, how it has impacted her life, and her goals in the future. Morrissey was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare childhood form of bone and muscle cancer,

when she was just completing seventh grade at St. Ignatius School. She underwent treatment in the form of chemotherapy and surgery for one year with positive results. She is free of cancer now, but continues to be monitored every three months with tests such as MRIs, CT scans, and heart tests. At McAuley, Morrissey’s cancer didn’t stop her from having a full, rich, and well-balanced high school experience. She is the secretary of the Drama Board and has been in many McAuley drama productions; in the fall, she starred as Alice in Alice in Wonderland. She is also a Thespian and the

Colerain senior gets Cincinnatus scholarship Colerain High School senior, Brendan McDonough, son of Joe and Lori McDonough, has been offered the University of Cincinnati’s Cincinnatus Presidential scholarship award. He is ranked sixth in his class of 481 and plans to major in communications at UC. He is the first Colerain High School student to be awarded the University of Cincinnati Cincinnatus Presidential Scholarship. The program awards 10 Presidential scholarships of $88,000 – $22,000 per year covers full tuition, fees, room, board, and a book allowance. Scholarship offers or invitations to compete were mailed to the highest achieving students in their selected academic program. Students were invited to compete on campus in February and were assessed on academic abilities, creative skills and leadership potential. Aptitude for community service is an important criterion for this scholarship. Pauletta Crowley, administrative assistant for community and administrative services for the district, said Brendan’s community service is extensive. Each summer, Brendan participates in a mission trip to help those in need. He has traveled to a

variety of places and experienced a multitude of cultures and different ways to help, from working with Habitat for Humanity in Spartanburg, McDonough S.C., to rebuilding a church on the Pima Indian Reservation in Arizona. Last summer he went to Philadelphia, Pa. and worked with inner city services organizations to benefit the homeless that live there. That particular trip inspired him, so this past winter Brendan organized and performed in a coffeehouse/benefit concert at his church with local musicians and groups, where admission costs were canned goods and proceeds benefited the Freestore/Foodbank here in Cincinnati. He is also an Eagle Scout. One of the requirements for the rank of Eagle Scout is to plan and carry out a service project to benefit your local community. Brendan organized a landscaping renovation project for the building and grounds of Northwest Community Church, a project that required more than 120 service hours.

The majority of the money donated will be sent to Japan through Catholic Relief Services. Some will be sent to the St. Ursula School in Hachinohe, Japan, just 200 miles from the quake’s epicenter. Pictured collecting donations from their homeroom are students Weslie Kennedy of College Hill and Melanie Leonard of Colerain Township. PROVIDED

Seitz removed from senate committee Gannett News Service For the second time, Green Township Republican Senator Bill Seitz has been yanked off a senate committee – this time stripped of his chairmanship. Seitz riled Republican leaders last month by opposing Senate Bill 5, legislation that limits collective bargaining rights for public unions; he lost an earlier committee seat when GOP leaders feared his ‘no’ vote would kill the bill. On April 6, State Senate Presi-

dent – and Seitz’s housemate in Columbus – Tom Niehaus, R-New Richmond, kicked the lawmaker off the chamber’s Government Oversight Seitz and Reform Committee, replacing him with Sen. Keith Faber (R-Celina.) By that afternoon, the chamber’s website had already replaced Seitz’s name and photo on the

committee list. “It’s unacceptable and I disagree with this decision,” Seitz said. Niehaus’ spokesman Jason Mauk said Seitz was removed because he considered adopting a substitute version of a bill that would revise the state’s public employee pension funds without first talking to Faber, who is the sponsor of that bill. “(Niehaus) felt the need to send the message to all the committee

chairs that he expects them to respect the process and the institution and that’s all this is about.” Seitz called it a housekeeping matter and that he was simply updating language in the bill. He said he checked with John Barron, legal counsel to the Senate Majority Caucus and spoke to other members on the committee about the issue. “I call that ‘checking with upstairs,’” Seitz said. “So you can judge for yourself whether the rea-

son given is the real reason or not.” Jason Mauk said removal – which will cost Seitz $6,500 a year – had nothing to do with SB 5. “I will not speak to the motivation behind it because it was not my decision,” Seitz said. “But having been removed from one committee weeks ago and now being removed from another, it brings to mind res ipsa loquitur, which in Latin means ‘the thing speaks for itself.’”

St. X aims for 6th straight district title By Tony Meale

The St. Xavier High School tennis team, which has won five consecutive district titles, entered the season ranked No. 1 in the city. The Bombers’ hold on that No. 1 ranking, however, is considerably more tenuous than in previous years, as St. X figures to face stiff challenges from the likes of Lakota East, Sycamore and Mason, ranked second through fourth, respectively. “In the last five years, we’ve been in the driver’s seat,” Bombers head coach Russ King acknowledged. “But I’ve got a whole lot more experience having to think of ways to beat somebody. I never get too secure.” St. X must replace Ryan Bandy, a former state semifinalist who is now playing at Notre Dame, as well as the state-qualifying doubles team of Sean Bandy and Jay Fovel. Yet the Bombers have fared well in the early season, beating La Salle 5-0


St. Xavier senior Devin Bostick will see a lot of time at first singles this season.


St. Xavier High School senior Edward Broun Jr. of Anderson is one of the top returners for the Bombers. March 30 and winning the St. Edward Tournament April 2. St. X, which totaled 47.5 points, finished ahead of Toledo St. John Jesuit (29.5), Westlake (29.5), Columbus University School (21.5), Hudson (12.5), Youngstown Hoover (9), Cleveland St. Ignatius (6)

and Cleveland St. Edward (0). “I don’t know if we could beat some of those teams again if we had to, but I’d rather be where we are than where they are, trying to figure out how to beat us,” King said. “But honest to goodness, there was some luck involved.”

Senior Devin Bostick of Mount Lookout, a returning district-qualifier, is St. X’s No. 1 singles player. “He’s got his work cut out for him,” King said. “We need him to hold his spot.” Other key performers are seniors Edward Broun Jr. of Anderson and Casey Leary of Loveland, as well as

sophomores Matt Santen of Hyde Park and Matthew Duma of Montgomery. Other contributors include seniors Dylan Folzenlogan of Loveland and John Heskett of Springdale, juniors Donald Baverman of Delhi and Eric Salomon of Hyde Park and sophomore Elliot Bostick of Mount Lookout. According to the St. Xavier school website, the Bombers have won the Greater Catholic League South division every year since 1968.

Knights ready to take the next step By Adam Turer

Northwest High School boys tennis coach Dexter Carpenter enters each season with enthusiasm. 2011 is no different, as Carpenter expects his team to challenge for the newly formed Fort Ancient Valley Conference West title. For the past four years, the Knights have played quality tennis, but come up just short of winning a league title. Northwest has finished second to Talawanda in the FAVC Scarlet Division each of the last four seasons. This year, the Knights have new competition in the FAVC West but will still need to overtake Talawanda to claim the league crown. This might be the year that the Knights take the next step. They have the talent and experience to compete with anyone and are off to a


good early start. “We’re l o o k i n g great,” said Carpenter of his team and their 4-1 start to the

season. The experienced squad features senior Taylor Aho playing first singles, Khanhhien Nguyen playing second singles, and Alex Klein playing third singles. Jake Kellerman and Nhat Quong Tran are the team’s top doubles team for now. When tournament time comes, Aho and Klein will team up for what Carpenter calls his “Super Doubles” team. “Our Super Doubles teams will be our strength come tournament time,” Carpenter said. He will also play his “Super Doubles” team against some of the Knights’ more high-profile

Other local boys tennis teams Colerain

The Cardinals, which went a combined 4-26 in 2008 and 2009, finished 3-13 (1-8) last year and snapped several dubious streaks in the process. Colerain had lost 22 straight Greater Miami Conference matches before besting Middletown 3-2 last April. It was the Cardinals’ first win over a GMC opponent since beating Hamilton 5-0 in May 2007. Colerain’s key performers this year are seniors Sean Fitzgerald, Josh Wilcox, Aaron McPheters and Jarrett Grace. Other contributors include Eric Mollman, James Sheline, Matt Hill, Gavin Whitehead and Craig White. The Cardinals, coached by Steve Tapogna, are 1-2 entering play April 7.

La Salle

Among the key singles performers for the Lancers are Anthony Heckle, Kevin Bush, John Hoeweler, Sam Pieper and Nick Buganski, while doubles performers include Ryan Gundlach, Sam Samoya and Travis Robertson. La Salle is coached by Mike Hollman.

Roger Bacon

The Spartans, which are 1-2 entering play April 5, are led by singles players Alex Meyer, Shaun Hoopes, Clay Tyler, Scott Schaffer and Seth Steele. Doubles players include Adam Richards, Alex Browne and Nick Luken. Roger Bacon is coached by David Schuster.

opponents during the regular season. The Knights have beefed up their nonconference schedule this year and will face some of the area’s top teams, including Moeller and Fairfield. “As we’ve gotten more competitive, we’ve added

tougher opponents to our schedule,” Carpenter said. “I think that will make us a lot better this year.” After finishing 11-4 last season, the Knights dedicated themselves to a steady offseason program. All 15 members of the boys team

participated in the team’s winter program, said Carpenter. The hard work is expected to pay off this year. Talawanda still stands as the team to beat in the FAVC West after defeating Northwest April 5, but the Knights are inching closer to the top each year. The extra effort the boys put in during the offseason will hopefully pay dividends come tournament time. “Our young people worked really, really hard in the offseason,” Carpenter said. “We had a really good winter program. Everybody put the time in to work and get better.” The Knights played in the Oak Hills tournament on Saturday, April 9, and traveled to matches at Madeira April 11 and Ross April 12. They return to action for their first home match since the season opener, hosting Taylor on Monday, April 18.

The week at St. Xavier

La Salle searching for consistency By Tony Meale

After a day-long examination of utility bills, it was pointed out in the article, ‘Performance audit expands to departments’ (March 16, 2011), addressing the issue of late/finance fees for delinquent bills, that late fees were assessed because of a straggling lighting district bill. According to the article, this problem was resolved in 2010 within 5 months, and makes this issue seem very insignificant. If this is no big deal, why did we pay an auditor $2,000 to do a performance audit? Why is this audit being expanded to the departments? I seriously doubt that this lighting district was the reason for cell phone service and utilities turned off, and credit denied at local stores. Realistically, we will never know how many hundreds of tax dollars were spent unnecessarily

CH@TROOM Should voters be required to provide a photo ID at the polls? Why or why not? “A picture ID should be required when voting as it for most other ID checks. In this day of identity theft, voter fraud etc. it makes sense. With the availability of mail-in voting (absentee) for everyone. I am not sure why any one would stand in line to vote any more. Go figure!” T.D.T. “ I think it is imperative that a photo ID be required to vote at the polls. I do not think a bill, an invoice, or anything else, minus the photo, with your name on it , should be acceptable. A photo ID is much better because when it is shown to the poll worker, he/she can identify the person by looking at the ID and looking at the person. If there is a match, then they can get a ballot. Otherwise – forget it.” J.E.T. his? If you need a photo ID to rent a car, cash a check or board a plane, I don’t think it’s too much to ask for ID to choose our leaders. There are too many opportunities for voter fraud these days and plenty of organizations willing to do it. Dead people vote, felons vote. Those who say that asking for an ID equals voter intimidation are wrong. Why would someone be intimidated by showing ID at a polling place? Here illegally? Active arrest warrants? Not really who you say you are? Hmmmm, maybe you shouldn’t be voting in the first place!” J.M. “Should voters be required to show photo ID? Why is this a question? Every time I walk into the Sharonville Community Center I am required to present my photo ID. It doesn’t embarrass me nor does it make me feel as if I am being singled out. Those who would oppose showing ID must have something to hide. For something as sacred as our one man, or one woman, one vote system, I believe verifying who we are to make sure we are eligible to cast a vote, is not only desirable, but essential in maintaining the integrity of our elections.” B.L. “Yes, If they ask me to show my picture ID at the polls, everyone who votes should have to do the same. I voted in the most cur-

Many people actually did not the required documents to show that they resided where there correct polling was. And the poll workers allowed them to vote. That’s wrong!, That’s illegal! Also, poll workers need to verify by the address on the IDs/documents that they are voting at the correct polling place. I’m sure someone is going to go into a polling place and request to vote and not have an correct I.D. address to the place they vote. Change of residency require that state-issued IDs be changed within 30 days of a residency change. Poll workers should be required to know this too!” D.K. “Yes. A photo ID is required for many things that are not nearly as important as voting. Voter fraud is very serious. It undercuts the legitimacy of our democracy and dilutes the value of every valid vote. And, with all the illegals in our area it is a very real possibility. “By all means, a photo ID should be required and it should be examined closely, since it is easy to obtain such things as counterfeit drivers licenses.” T.H. “You need a photo ID (passport) to enter the United States even if you are a citizen of the USA. You need a photo ID to board a commercial airliner if you are over 18 years old. You need a photo ID (driver’s license) to legally operate an automobile. The government is willing to issue photo IDs to anyone that needs one for a very nominal cost. “Some will allege it is racially motivated. There is a legitimate reason for positive identification with a photo ID. Voter fraud is well known to all. Qualifying to vote requires a process. Including a photo ID in that process seems logical and well intended, despite politically motivated objections.” J.S.D.

As I’m writing this, I’m on a military flight on my way back from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. I’m on a Congressional delegation with Sen. Scott Brown (R – MA), Democratic Rep. Albio (D – NJ), and a few military personnel. This is the third time I’ve been to Gitmo. The first time was in 2002. My second trip was five years later. Here’s what I saw, learned, and think about Gitmo following my latest inspection of the United States’ principal facility for holding anti-American Jihadist terrorists. At its zenith, approximately 800 detainees were held at Guantanamo Bay. We are now down to 172. The others have been transferred back to their own countries. It’s estimated that 25 percent have again taken up arms against the United States and our allies. I find this particularly disturbing. Of the remaining 172 detainees at Guantanamo Bay, most are from Yemen. They range in age from 23 to 63. They are all male, all Muslims, and in most instances very dangerous. Most eat better and get better medical care than at any time in their lives. The very worst are kept in a separate facility. We visited this

location, were briefed, and observed a number of the inmates on closed circuit T.V. This information is classified, but I can say that the most notoriSteve Chabot ous detainee we was Community observed Khalid Sheikh Press guest Mohammed, the columnist mastermind of 9/11. He was water boarded more than 100 times, and the information acquired averted planned attacks on the United States after 9/11. There have been allegations that the United States routinely tortures or mistreats detainees at Gitmo. As far as I can tell, this is utterly false. Despite being hit with a mixture of urine and fecal matter by inmates, the guards at Gitmo have a reputation for restraint and professionalism, which I saw on all three visits. Our brave troops ought to be praised, honored and appreciated, not denigrated. So why have we only tried four of these terrorists? The problem is that President Obama shut down the military commission process and proposed that we try the


detainees in U.S. civilian courtrooms, specifically in New York City. There was such an outcry that he has finally backed off. But this has significantly delayed the process, and dramatically increased the cost. Considerable time, energy, and expense were wasted because preliminary proceedings were dismissed when the Obama Administration ordered civilian trials. Now the court motions will have to be re-filed and re-litigated, costing us once again – what a waste. It’s too bad the administration didn’t listen to the American people the first time. I continue to argue that master propagandists like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed cannot be allowed to use their trials to spread their vehement, anti-American message. Further, to allow them to mix with U.S. prison inmates would risk spreading their virulent venom throughout our prisons. In conclusion, Gitmo still serves an important role in the war against Islamic Jihadist terrorists, and in my opinion should remain open into the foreseeable future. Rep. Steve Chabot (R – 1st District) is the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East and South Asia.

Tax reminders from Social Security Q) My husband and I intend to file for Social Security benefits next year when we are both full retirement age. Between the two of us, we will have a combined Social Security benefit of almost $3,000 per month. Will we have to pay federal income tax on that amount? A) Perhaps. You will have to pay federal taxes on your benefits if you file a joint tax return and you and your spouse have a total income that is more than $32,000. If you file as an individual, you will have to pay taxes on your benefits if your total income is more than $25,000.

Attentiveness is the prerequisite for appreciating spring there in it. Put everything else aside and permit it to envelop us. J o h n O’DonoFather Lou hue writes, Guntzelman “Beauty is Perspectives not to be captured or controlled for there is something intrinsically elusive in its nature. More like a visitation than a solid fact, beauty infuses a landscape with an unexpected intimacy that satisfies our longing.” Routine is an enemy of appreciating beauty. Routine creates ruts. And wellworn ruts can become so deep they prevent us from seeing over the sides. Spring taunts us to climb out of our ruts and be young again in feeling and memories.

How can we get out of our ruts? That’s probably part of what was going on in the mind of Nicodemus when he talked with Christ one day. “How can I be born and be new again when I’m old?” he asked. Undoubtedly his life had become more and more rigid, more captured by cynicism and harnessed by repetition. Life was getting old for him. He was envious of the young, rarely laughed, and wondered how he could become young again. Evidently he didn’t realize that to be alive we must maintain a sense of wonder, walk more slowly, and become closer to those we love. Rushing through spring is like the lady vacationing in Paris. She went to see the works of art in the Louvre. When she came back home she bragged that she had seen all there was to

see there in an hour, and she could have made it in 45 minutes if she wasn’t wearing heels. Springtime elicits movement from us but it’s not a hurrying movement in high heels. It is a walking in bare feet on fresh grass. It is a collaboration with God, who never tires of making everything young and new again inside us. “See, I am making all things new!” (Revelation 21:5) We are part of the natural world. We’re interdependent with it even though our culture tends to isolate us from it. But we cannot exist in a healthy balance outside of nature because our bodies evolved in concert with it. The great biologist René Dubos believed that we are retreating further and further from nature and becoming mutants. Many have ceased living in nature and have now made their home in Tech-

Beware of help wanted scam on Craigslist What sounds like an innocent help wanted ad on Craigslist may turn out to be a new way to steal your money. It doesn’t require you to wire money to anyone overseas, but you can still end up being scammed. Jennifer Hamblin of Cheviot saw such a help wanted ad earlier this year. “I responded to a parttime job posting on Craigslist for a housekeeper/ babysitter,” she said. A month later she heard back from those seeking help. “They apparently were going to be moving from the United Kingdom, relocating to Colerain Township,” she said. Hamblin was told she was going to earn $400 a week for this part-time position and it sounded very good. “She started emailing me back with pictures, and eventually she sent me a check. She wanted to email me a grocery list to supply her new home with groceries. In the meantime, somebody else is going to be mailing me keys to the house,” said Hamblin. Hamblin actually received email pictures of the family and the young daughter she was to babysit. When she got the check, for nearly $3,000, she said she was told, “Make sure when you deposit it you send me a copy of the deposit slip.” But she said that will come from her personal bank account, adding, “It

will have all my information at the bottom.” Hamblin says another thing that Howard Ain d o e s n ’ t Hey Howard! m a k e sense is although the check was supposedly sent via UPS from the United Kingdom, the shipping address says it was sent from Louisiana. Hamblin did not deposit the check. “I actually called the bank that the check was written off of and they knew right away it was a scam,” she said. Hamblin said she never received that promised grocery list, but did continue receiving emails asking if she deposited the check. “I just don’t want other people to fall into the same thing. They might not realize it’s a scam and they may run to the bank and cash the check,” she said. The key to this scam is if you send someone your deposit slip they can use it to rob you. That slip contains enough of your bank information to permit the thief to get the amount of that deposit right out your account. You will be left holding the bag because the thief’s check will bounce and the bank will require you to make good on the money. Incidentally, Hamblin found this same thief had placed similar help wanted

ads claiming she was also moving to Cleveland, Columbus and Dayton. So, you need to beware when answering any ads.

The sin against springtime is inattention. How can we not be affected by so much beauty and the insistence of life? Spring is the time when life reminds us it is never gone. It strains against the walls of earth’s confinement and always finds cracks to slide free into open air. Cabin fever is now replaced by freedom. Where death claimed victory, life says, “Oh no you don’t!” Though throughout winter our daily lives may feel frosted and forlorn, spring’s warm breezes laugh, play with our hair, and tell us we were wrong. Spring makes liars of pessimists. It sprouts hope, vitality, and an encouragement to live more enthusiastically. We recognize a call to revel in the sensuality of our bodies and let loose the love in our hearts. Attentiveness is the prerequisite for appreciating springtime. We have to be

Go green (blue, red) with natural Easter egg dyes All during Lent, I’ve been tossing yellow and red onion skins into my old handcarved wooden salad bowl from Lebanon. The reason? To make homemade dye for coloring Easter eggs naturally. Along with the onion skins I’ll use red cabbage and the spice turmeric, and beet juice. I always let the little ones help. This year, Eva, our youngest grandchild, will join her cousins coloring the eggs. They watch in awe as they learn their first lessons in food chemistry: the red cabbage turns the eggs a gorgeous teal blue, the turmeric gives a sunshine yellow hue to the eggs and the onion skins are unpredictable but always beautiful in shades of amber to brick red. I have my mom, Mary Nader, to thank for making us such “green advocates.” She colored our eggs with onion skins. When we were kids, we liked commercially colored eggs better, but as I grew

older, I came to appreciate just what the onion skin eggs meant. More than just Rita c o l o r i n g , Heikenfeld they were Rita’s kitchen a way of telling a story and passing history on to the next generation.

to set the dye. Put boiled eggs in. Depending upon how long they sit in the dye, the eggs made with yellow onion skins will be pale yellow to dark amber. Red onion skins produce eggs that are brick/brown red. Red cabbage is the winner: it makes beautiful teal blue eggs but these take the longest time so you may want to put them in the fridge until they turn the shade you like. Turmeric makes the eggs more brilliantly yellow than the marigolds my dad, Charlie Nader, used to plant in front of the porch. Turmeric colored eggs require a different method. Stir 3 tablespoons or so of turmeric in 11⁄2 cups water in saucepan . Bring to boil. Remove, let cool but don’t strain. Add a tablespoon or so of vinegar. Place boiled eggs in dye, stirring to coat. When you remove the eggs, gently wipe off turmeric with soft cloth or run them

Naturally colored Easter eggs

In a saucepan, place as many papery outer skins of yellow and/or red onions that you have. Cover with an inch of water. Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer and cook until onion skins have colored the water, about 10 minutes. Use this same method for red cabbage (just chunk it up), beets, etc. Even used coffee grounds can be used. Strain and add a tablespoon or so of clear vinegar

Perfect hard-cooked eggs

Cover eggs with an inch or so of cold water. Bring slowly to a boil over medium heat. Then put the lid on, remove from fire and let sit 12 to 15 minutes.

Tips from Rita’s kitchen

Refrigerate hard-cooked eggs within two hours after they’ve been found on Easter morning.

Passover brisket

Adapted from Zel Schulman’s book “Let My People Eat!”

2-3 pounds brisket 1 bottle, 12 oz., chili sauce 1 ⁄3 cup dark brown sugar, packed or more to taste 1 can, 10 oz., beef broth 1 large onion, sliced 1 ⁄4 teaspoon ground cloves 2 bay leaves Put everything in crockpot and cook on low eight to 11 hours or until tender. Or bake covered, in preheated 325-degree oven for about one hour per pound. Remove bay leaves. Serves four to six.

Reader question: Honing steels

From a Milford Miami Advertiser reader: “My honing steel doesn’t work anymore. Should I replace it?” Run your thumbnail around the circumference of the tool. If you can still feel grooves, your steel is still useful. It is magnetized to

pick up microscopic fillings that come off the knife’s blade. So it’s a good idea to rub the steel with a cloth after use so the grooves don’t get clogged. Now unless the honer has diamond chips in it, most steels won’t sharpen a dull knife (they restore the knife’s bite by straightening the microscopic “teeth” at the edge that fold with use). If a knife doesn’t respond to honing, it’s time to get it sharpened professionally.

Northwest extends superintendent’s contract By Jennie Key

Northwest Superintendent Richard Glatfelter is set to lead the district through 2013. His contract as superintendent was extended for two years by the Northwest Local School District Board of Education at its March 22 meeting by a 3-2 vote. Board members Elaine Gauck and Dan Unger voted no. Gauck said she favored a one-year extension. Unger said while he voted to approve the superintendent’s review and he agreed that Glatfelter did well in the areas covered by that review, he has philosophical differences with Glatfelter and is unhap-

py that a number of initiatives he proposed were not pursued by the superintendent. “There has been no searchable database for the financials,” he said. “And I have deep philosophical differences with the superintendent regarding taxation and the amount of additional taxation that the households of this district can tolerate.” Unger pointed to the accessibility of financial information through an online searchable database and televising work sessions, saying he doesn’t feel he has a lot of say-so on the board. He said Glatfelter tends to follow the directives of the majority of the board. Board member David

Denney asked if Unger felt now was the time to change leadership, with Senate Bill 5, a potential bond levy and other major funding cuts on the horizon. Unger said his understanding was that Glatfelter was staying for three years, a term that would end this summer. “We have a lot of inhouse talent that might get the feeling that there is no opportunity to move up when the superintendent keeps being renewed and renewed and renewed,” he said. “There are a lot of people at this table who could do a good job as superintendent.” He added that his choice might be “someone with a different perception of what

with the retirement and benefit pickups is $119,863. Bertram said this is 25 percent less than his salary when he retired from the district, and rehired, on July 1, 2009. Despite the challenges, Glatfelter is optimistic about the district’s future. “We have the opportunity to do good things in the district over the next two years,” he said. “I want to be a part of that.” For more about your community, visit www.

ahead, and I am glad Rick is going to be the one to lead us through them.” Northwest district treasurer Randy Bertram said Glatfelter’s annual salary remains $104,800 as it was two years ago. The board pays his retirement contribution, which is 10 percent of his income, and picks up the cost of his Medicare, which Bertram said is 1.45 percent of his salary. He also receives term life insurance of $250,000. Glatfelter’s total compensation

the taxation level should be and what our employee compensation level should be … We just think differently.” Board president Pam Detzel said she is pleased Glatfelter’s contract is being extended, especially given the economy and the unknown factors facing the district. “He is the right person for this job,” Detzel said. “I appreciate the dedication we have had from Rick for over 40 years and I am happy that he is willing to commit for two more years with the district.

Downsizing a Home

Next, make a running list of what items can be discarded and where those items will go. Some belongings can be donated to charity, while others may be given to family and friends. Many other things could end up in the trash or recycling bins. Knowing where things will go will make them easier to sort.

When actually beginning to get rid of things, start with the areas that receive the least amount of use. Belongings stored in the attic or basement may be simply taking up space and hold less sentimental value. People can then work their way toward items that are used on a regular basis. Duplicates of things can be donated. It can be cathartic to clear out clutter and get ready to start anew. Some people find they have to downsize because of financial reasons. In these cases, thinning out belongings can also be a way to earn a few extra bucks. Selling or auctioning off seldom used items may produce a little extra cash that can help finance moving expenses or even bills. TF10C243

For those doing a major clean-out of the home, it could be efficient to hire a dumpster to be placed on-site. This way, larger bulk items can simply be tossed inside. Some municipalities restrict what can be placed in the regular trash or how much garbage can be collected, so this alleviates the stress of dealing with excess trash.
