Colerain High turf war settled School gets new field, taxpayers off the hook for the bill By Jennie Key

Colerain High School is replacing the field turf on its football field and officials say it’s not going to cost the taxpayers in the Northwest Local School District a cent. The Northwest Local School District Board of Education and Field Turf USA, the company that sold the turf at UC Health Field at Cardinal Stadium, have been at odds over the wear of some of the turf. The field turf was installed in 2004, with the Colerain High School Boosters paying $500,000 for the installation. The money was raised through fundraisers and corporate and private donations. The field has alternating dark green and light green sections. The light green sections

have been deteriorating and the district wanted Field Turf USA to fix the issue. Athletic director Dan Bolden said the problem was especially noticeable when it rained. Strands of the light green turf would wash off the field. And the black rubber underlay was working its way up through sections of the turf. The problem led to about a year of wrangling between the district and field turf, culminating in a lawsuit filed by the district in July. The lawsuit claimed FieldTurf installed defective materials and refused to honor its warranty. The company responded to the suit in part by saying the problems with the field were the fault of the district. A FieldTurf representative did not respond to a request for a comment for this story. Northwest Superintendent Andrew Jackson announced at the April 22 meeting that a settlement was reached, the See TURF, Page A2

Brenda Ryan brings home prizes, money and memories By Jennie Key

“Green Thumb Wrestling.” It’s not code. It’s the answer to the Before and After puzzle on “Wheel of Fortune” that won White Oak resident Brenda Ryan a Smart Car, a gift card and more than $3,000 in cash. Her next puzzle solution, “It’s Highly Recommended,” is sending her and husband Richard “Moe” Ryan to Jamaica just in time to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary. Brenda took the “Wheel of Fortune” for a spin and brought home $24,380 in cash and prizes. When the contestant on her right beat her to the bonus round by $90, she gave him a playful swat on the arm. But she wasn’t deeply disappointed. She had the time of her life. “It was so much fun and everyone was so nice,” she said. “This really was a dream come true.” Brenda tried out for the show at a Wheelwagon audition at Treasure Aisles Flea Market in Monroe last October. “She had to talk me into taking her,” Moe confessed. “And when we got there, I swear there were like a million people there. We walked in and I said, ‘You really think they are going to call your name out of all these people?’ And she said, ‘yes I do.’ And then they did.” Brenda said she felt confident going into the audition, but felt she had blown her chance while on stage. But less than a month later, she got a call back

from the production company. And after that audition, the show invited her to come to Sony Studios in Culver City, Calif., Jan. 11 for a taping. Her show was the last of six to be taped that day, plenty of time for the nerves to build. “It’s harder than you ex-

pect,” she said. “They warn you that it’s different than playing at home, and they were right. I didn’t know the right answer to the thumb puzzle until the very last second. I have no idea where that answer came from.” Brenda, 56, is a retired security staff member for Walnut Hills High School. Her husband, a retired Cincinnati Police officer, coaches football there. The couple has four children and four grandchildren. They threw a party to share Brenda’s TV debut with family and friends at the Northside Knights of Columbus Hall on Blue Rock Road April 24, the night her show was broadcast. They cheered her on as she wracked up money and prizes, moaned at the close finish and celebrated her joy as she shared her experience. “She is one in a billion,” Moe said. “She is such a sweetheart. She always said she wanted to be on that show, and I was so glad she got the chance.”

The light green areas of Colerain High School's UC Health Field at Cardinal Stadium are failing, with the black rubber working up through the deteriorating lighter green turf. The failure of the field led to a lawsuit, which has been settled. Colerain will get a new field at a reduced price. JENNIE KEY/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

board approved it, and now the school will get a new field at a cost of $341,000. The money will come out of the district’s permanent improvement fund but will be paid back using money generated by a sponsorship agreement with UC Health. The agreement gives $500,000 to Colerain High School’s athletic program and $200,000 to Northwest High School’s athletics over a 10-year period. Board president David Denny said the board has spent a lot of time in talks with the turf company and he’s glad to see a settlement reached and a plan in place to fix the field. “There are a lot of groups who use that field besides the football pro-

gram,” Denny said. “Soccer, lacrosse, physical education classes and our marching band, to name a few.” He and other board members stressed that no tax dollars would pay for the field. “The cost will be paid by the agreement with UC Health,” he said. “Even the cost of having someone oversee and monitor the installation will be covered by the sponsorship agreement.” Denny said the district made sure the warranty agreement was tightly written and the agreement will fix the problem. He said installation will begin as soon as possible, and the field will be ready by football season. “It’s unfortunate, but we think we have a resolution, and we will be watching closely as the new field is installed,” he said

Programs could be affected by federal cuts By Jennie Key

Concern about sequestration cuts in Washington, D.C. are trickling down the Council of Aging of Southwest Ohio and to the programs it supports at local senior centers. At the Colerain Township Community Center’s 50-Plus program, the center’s transportation is being put on hold effective May 1 because of the un-

INFANT & CHILD SAFETY & CPR CLASS Tuesday, May 7, 2013 6:30 - 9:30 pm

Ross Medical Center 2449 Ross-Millville Rd. Hamilton, OH The Infant and Child Safety and CPR Class is a two-hour course designed for parents and other caregivers of young children. Learn how to prevent many common accidents to children, to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on a baby or small child, and to assist a baby or child who is choking.

There is a class fee of $25 for two adults, and $10 for each additional adult, payable at the time of the class.

certainly of the program’s funding. Trips bringing seniors to the center for programs, to medical appointments and grocery shopping will be curtailed at least temporarily until funding to the council on aging is verfied. In 2012, the center provided 1,939 trips for seniors. The congregate meals program, which provides lunch for a fee at the center, will be continued for now, but could be suspended or eliminated depending on what happens with the funding. In 2012, 2,139 congregate meals were served at the Colerain Community Center, which receives about $28,002 from the council to help offset the cost of the programs. Colerain Community Center director Marie Sprenger said the poten-

tial cut in council funding coincided with the May 1 retirement of driver Ray Richburg. “The transportation has been put on hold only at this time due to the uncertainty of funding, the retirement of the transportation driver, and the lack of response to the posted open driving position which has limited hours and requires specific training and certifications,” she said. “We are still seeking a qualified transportation driver for this service, should the funding remain secure.” Laurie Petrie, communications director for the Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio, said her agency is still waiting to hear how much of its funding it will receive. She said the late vote on the budget held up part of the Title III funds that COA distributes in a five-county area. The

service area includes Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton and Warren counties. “We sent out a letter to our providers letting them know that we anticipate there will be a reduction,” Petrie said. Some are taking a wait-and-see position. A few, Colerain being an example, have been more proactive. Colerain’s director said her center has to be proactive. “We can’t cover a shortfall,” Sprenger said. “So we are putting the transportation on hold for now.” Petrie said the COA has a contingency fund and if the reduction is small, the agency may opt to cover it. In 2012, the Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio received about $7.2 million in Title III funds. In part, that helped provide 209,584 congregate meals and 176,825 transportation trips for those over 60. Petrie said her agency expects to have some answers by mid-May and will be in a position to decide if COA can cover this shortfall. If not, the cost and the decision as to whether to continue to provide the services, goes back to the local centers and agencies. “We hate being in this position,” Petrie said. “It’s so iffy and we know seniors count on these services.”

Green Township streets set for repair By Kurt Backscheider

Green Twp. — Green Township will repair eight residential streets this summer as part of the 2013 Street Rehabilitation Program. The board of trustees approved a resolution April 8 authorizing the advertising for bids for this year’s street program. Green Township Public Services Director Joe Lambing said work should begin in early June and be finished in October or early November, depending on the weather. Streets designated for repair this year include Country Lake Drive, Elmhill Court, Falconbridge Drive, Opengate Court, Quailhill Drive, Southfork Drive, Whispering Way and Werkridge Drive

(the section north of Werk Road). Each year, Lambing and his staff drive every township street and rate the pavement condition of each using a scale of 1 to 7, with seven being the worst, he said. The streets in the worst condition are put at the top of the list for the summer rehabilitation program. Lambing said each street included in this summer’s program will be repaved, and the curbs also will be repaired. The estimated cost of this year’s program is about $1.2 million. Green Township will use tax increment financing funds to pay for the repairs, Lambing said. Residents who live on affected streetwill receive a letter notifying them of the construction schedule.

NW High School principal will become district business director By Jennie Key

Mt. Healthy kindergarten teacher is ‘excellent’ Kober honored by Cincinnati Christian University

MORE INFORMATION Mount Healthy South Elementary, 7900 Werner Ave., received an effective on the 2011-12 state report card. It serves students in kindergarten through sixth grade.

By Monica Boylson

Mount Healthy South Elementary School kindergarten teacher Holly Kober surrounds herself with the people she loves. Photos of former students are tacked to a bulletin board behind her desk. Pictures of her family and her two sons are lined along the window sill and on her desk and filing cabinet. And she said she’s most happy when her classroom is full of students. “I feel like I have 57 children of my own,” she said of her morning and afternoon kindergarten classes. “I really love the kids.” The 30-year-old teacher, who described her classroom as “loud” and made mention of dance breaks, was named a Cincinnati Christian University Teacher of Excellence. She joins nine other teachers in the area who

were picked from more than 500 nominations. She is also in the running for the Outstanding Teacher of Excellence award from the college which includes a $1,000 check. Kober She and her teaching peers will be honored at banquet at the college April 25. If Kober wins the top award, she said she either wants to buy an iPad or two or update her listening center in the classroom which has books on tape and other reading activities. The teacher of five years said it was a “complete surprise” that she was nominated and an even bigger surprise when she found out that she had won.


Having been graduated from CCU in 2007, she planned to attend the banquet as an alumnae and have a reunion with some of her former classmates and teachers. After a call to the college to tweak her reservation to include her husband, she found out that she had been both nominated and named one of the top 10. “It’s really nice to be recognized and I’m excited to be thanked for what I do,” she said. She said the most rewarding part of her job is watching the children learn. “The progress in kindergarten is amazing,” she said. “It’s amazing how they come in knowing so little and then they’re leaving reading and writing. I hope that all my students know how proud I am and how I much I love them.” South Elementary Principal Eugene Blalock said he is not surprised Kober is in the top 10. “She is very dedicated and supportive of the students,” he said. “She does a wonderful job. Her classes and lessons are very engaging. She gives the students a thirst for education and she’s an example to her peers.”

Ten students from McAuley High School made the pilgrimage to Washington, D.C., to peacefully protest the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade decision. They were accompanied by Tasha Grismayer, a teacher at St. Ignatius School. All of the students are members of the McAuley LIFE Club, which works throughout the year to promote respect for all life and encourage positive life decisions. Pictured in front of the Capitol are, from front left, Mary Orth, Claire Tonnis, Samantha Brock and Brenna Silber; second row, Anna Buczkowski, Jessica Bloemer, Carah Kreimer, Jodi Duccilli, Lindsey Schmucker and Roni Murray.

Northwest High School staff and students are losing their principal. Todd Bowling, who took over as principal at his alma mater as principal in 2007, will be the Northwest Local School District’s new director of business services. The board of education approved his appointment at its regular meeting April 22. Bowling says he will miss Northwest High School but his new position will make it possible to serve families in the entire district. “I look forward to starting my new position,” he said. Bowling’s salary increases by $1,247 and will be $118,212 for his new responsibilities. He starts Bowling his new position Aug. 1. Greg Hester, director of human resources for the district, said Bowling earned his bachelor’s degree in physical and health education at the University of Dayton, then received his master’s degree in educational administration from the University of Cincinnati. He started his career in the Northwest district in 1989 teaching at the elementary and middle school levels until becoming an assistant high school principal with the neighboring Mount Healthy City School District. In 1999, he became principal of Jane Hoop Elementary School, where he served until 2004, when he became director of elementary and secondary education in Mount Healthy. He returned to the Northwest district to become principal in 2007. Hester said the principal position at Northwest High School has been posted and the district wants to have someone selected by June 10.


Brittany Zins has received the Resident Assistant Year Award and the Bulldog Award for women’s golf at Union College. The awards were presented as part of the school’s Co-Curricular Awards, which recognize the accomplishments of Union students outside of the classroom.

Appreciating the value of nurses Some of the most valuable members in your health care team are the many nurses that might deliver your children, care for you after a surgery or even manage a hospital. National Nurses Week is May 6-12. The purpose of National Nurses Week is to raise public awareness of the value of nursing and to help educate the public about the vital roles nurses play in meeting health care needs. Nurses coordinate patient care, educate patients and provide emotional support to patients and their fam-

Tax code needs revision Our tax code is so convoluted that even the IRS does not really understand it. We have had top governmental financial advisors who have failed to file their taxes properly. We need to do a complete remake of this monstrous mess. A simple, reasonable code would be to have only two tax rates, one at 10 percent and one at 25 percent. This would allow growth at a near 15 percent rate. That is, the difference between 25 percent and the current Stanton Doran rate of 38 COMMUNITY PRESS percent or more. GUEST COLUMNIST Since our present elected officials in the Senate and the White House want to redistribute wealth from those who have earned it to those that desire more, the tax code will probably get more complex and higher. After all, the favored of the Washington politicians will continue to get special favorite rates and deductions for doing whatever is desired. Fair is a magic word in the air these days. We are supposed to need a fair tax code to make things better. Truth is that a true fair tax code is one where we are NOT taxed at a higher rate just because we worked an extra few hours and received those precious dollars of overtime pay. I have known people who refused overtime because it would mean such a big cut going to the Infernal Redistribution Service so that those who are too lazy to work at all could get a new car. It is the truth that many who are on the dole actually receive so much in various freebies that they are better off financially than those that are working or even many who own a business.

Nursing is a growing profession that is expected to increase the key role they play in health care as the Darla Vale COMMUNITY PRESS population ages and peoGUEST COLUMNIST ple live longer, more active lives. The job outlook for nurses thrives as well, with an expected growth of 26 percent from 2010-2020. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of

Labor Statistics predicts a nursing shortage of more than 250,000 jobs by 2025. Nurses with bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) as well as advanced degrees such as a master of science in nursing (MSN) or a doctor of nursing practice (DNP), are in even greater demand, especially in medically underserved, or rural, areas. Since the majority of nursing educators are getting closer to retirement age, the need for nurses with advanced degrees will become even greater.

Residents in the Tristate are fortunate to have many excellent options in nursing schools if they are interested in entering the nursing profession or furthering their current nursing career. In addition to the traditional BSN program, the Mount has a second master’s program for people with a bachelor’s degree in another field, as well as blended learning formats and specialized tracks in the MSN and DNP programs. In addition, the Mount now offers a fully online RN to BSN

CH@TROOM April 24 question Has the bombing at the Boston Marathon made you rethink which public events you will attend? Why or why not?

“The Bombing at the Boston Marathon will have the same effect on me as did the1977 Beverly Hill Supper Club fire in Northern Kentucky. It will make me more observant and cautious. It continues to amaze me that these “zealots” who hate America so much continue to leave THEIR country and flock to America. Go Figure!” T.D.T.

“On my mind, yes! This will not change my attending any open public events because I can be assured tighter security will always prevail. Ever attend a political rally? I don’t mind that type of security!” O.H.R.

“Absolutely not. If one would look at the threat of terrorism versus ‘normal’ gun violence in this country, you are far more likely to be shot and killed by someone you know. “People have to get these random acts in perspective. They are bad, but the chances of ever being a victim are so miniscule that it is not in your interest to

want is for the terrorists to inhibit our freedoms and change our way of life. So no, I won’t change my habits with regard to attending public events. As a concealed carry permit holder, I carry my firearm everywhere I am legally allowed to do so. Although this wouldn’t have protected me from a bomb such as this, it does enhance my personal safety and security and allows me to walk the streets without fear.” R.W.J.


“Life is full of nasty surprises, like a concert stage falling on you or an elderly driver hitting the gas instead of the brake and driving into a crowd or oversized cargo hitting a highway bridge and falling on your car. “The bombing is no different. Stuff happens to innocent people through no fault of their own. You can live in a cave and be safe (unless there is a bear in there) or enjoy life and endure the unlikely events that put you at risk. “I vote for live life and be happy.

“I have been to seven Boston Marathons. The idiots who bombed Boston made my resolve more to attend large events that I want to see. “This is America where freedom to chose is paramount. Those who become afraid because of this are too ingrained in fear. They listen too much to the talking heads – they don’t go downtown because they hear of a murder. “Do not become paranoid because of this. Stand up and be part of America.” W.B.

“The Boston situation sure made me do a lot thinking. I can’t believe some of the things that are happening in our country. “We all need to stress more

respect in schools and encourage parents to take more interest in their chilldren and in what our young ones are doing, both educationally and also social life. Encourage strength of family values.” E.S.

“The bombings in Boston will not change the way I go about my daily business, but on the other hand I will pay more attention to the people around me. You can call it profiling, and that may be what it is, but that is what I am going to do.” Dave D.

“The bombing at the Boston Marathon has not made me rethink which public events I’ll attend. There is no way we can be completely protected from anything and anyone who might want to do us harm. Such is life. Not one of us knows when we’ll ‘be called home.’ I try to live my life morally and I try to make sure the people I love know it.” M.K.T

“It might. The only large groups in public places I frequent are Fountain Square and Paul Brown Stadium for Bengal home games. From now on I will keep an eye out for people or things that seem out of place.” R.V.

Go screen-free to develop ‘old-school’ skills The notion of being screenfree these days, even for a week, seems akin to self-imposed exile to a dark, friendless cave. It is especially hard for parents, as videos, baby apps, and electronic gadgets beckon, promising a continuous stream of learning and happiness. We used to worry about our children running outside without a coat. Now, we worry about them going anywhere without entertainment. In the 1960s children started watching TV around 3 years old. The average now is 9 months. Older kids use screen media 7½-11 hours per day, those under 2 up to 3 hours, versus 20-30 minutes with books. Sanctuary is scarce: 70 percent of U.S. children (30 percent under 2) have at least one screen in their bedroom. And it’s getting scarcer: the emergence of portable devices like tablets empowers digital media to literally follow our children wherever they go. This screen time explosion is a triumph of marketing over



A publication of


public health. Anxious parents are led to believe that screen-based media is not only benign, but necessary for learning, with every show and app an opportunity

to do so. This could not be farther from the truth. While entertaining, the only proven learning offered by even the sleekest, most “interactive” among them is unhealthy habits. Beware two categories of screen media: virtual and “educational.” The former promotes e-versions of real experiences: pets, the sky, books read by cartoons. The latter promises oft-unrealistic skill development via gazing and poking. Both interfere with actual learning, which is best nurtured via real people in the real world. Remember: Steve Jobs founded Apple without an iPad and Einstein excelled with

stargazing. Electronic media are not only an inferior means for children to experience their world, they can be toxic. Screen time is a major risk factor for obesity, impaired sleep, and behavior problems, especially when starting young. An important maxim in pediatrics is, “children are not small grownups.” Developing brains do not process screen media the same way mature ones do, and not at all constructively under age 2. Screen time also steals opportunities to develop vital “old-school” skills, such as self-calming, socialization, multisensory exploration, and connection with the natural world. So how do we raise mediasavvy children? Pediatricians recommend no screen time under age 2, before gradually introducing quality programming such as “Sesame Street,” banning screens from bedrooms and meals, and watching together whenever possible. Fussiness and “boredom” are not symptoms of media

deficiency; rather, a prelude to imagination and invention. Learning to play creatively and channel emotions takes practice. The good news is, practice is fun! Screen-free week (April 29 May 5) is an ideal time to give it a try. Instead of handing off a device grownups should offer unplugged options such as blocks, boxes, and the backyard. It’s also critical to be healthy role models: stowing smartphones during playtime, avoiding background TV, and of course, sharing real books. When children feel safe and loved in such an environment amazing things happen. Most of all, embrace the opportunities childhood offers. Unplug, tune in, and have fun! Dr. John S.

olerain Township police and firefighters regularly train and drill to be ready for crisis situations such as the Sandy Hook school shooting. April 20, they joined forces for a training exercise at Northwest High School. The scenario was an active shooter in the building. The township was training for a new kind of response to that situation. Colerain Township Police Officer Ken Bertz says in most active shooter circumstances, departments initially send in tactical, SWAT and police teams to find and stop the shooter and give emergency medical teams an “all clear.” Authorities say that this time waiting for an “all clear” is time where lives are lost. The Tactical Medic response aims to cut that wait time by sending trained and equipped medical personnel to victims as soon as possible. Medics go in early with tactical police teams before the shooter is apprehended. They treat victims as

they are located in room-to-room seaches and relay information to transport teams. As soon as police clear an area of the building and the team determines it’s possible, the victims are evacuated and transported without delay. Police Chief Dan Meloy said the plan makes sense, but he needed to see how it worked. A group of firefighter/paramedics volunteered to be part of the team, and trained with police at Northwest High School. Members of the Colerain Township Citizens Police Academy and the Northwest High School Driving Angels participated as victims, hiding in classrooms, with make-up wounds. Meloy said he was pleased with the training, and the departments will continue to fine-tune the procedures. “This was a good training,” he said. “I pray we never have to use it.”


Colerain Township Police Officer Sean Maher is on alert at the back of the tactical medical team making its way up the stairs during a drill at Northwest High School. The drill gave tactical medical teams, which bring emergency medical personnel in with early-entry police to treat victims, a chance to work on procedures and tactics in case of a mass-casualty incident such as a shooting in a school building.

Try Mexican brownies for Cinco de Mayo

Guru in our backyard

Cheri Brinkman is an adventurous cook who is known in the Midwest for her well-researched, local recipes. Brinkman is a historical food writer who loves Cincinnati as well as the food and folk lore surrounding it. The latest book in her Cincinnati and Soup series is “Cincinnati and Soup: Festivals and Frolics” (Macguffin Productions, $22), which traces the

history of both Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky festivals. There are authentic recipes to go along with the stories (and Brinkman is a spell-binding story teller). You’ll find recipes for Oktoberfest, Italian Fest, Maifest and of course, Goetta Fest. This book would be the perfect gift with Mother’s Day coming up. I asked Brinkman to share a favorite. “It is hard to pick just one recipe but I love attending the annual Blues and Barbecue Festival in Lebanon, so here’s an easy barbecue sauce recipe from it. It won’t have you ‘singing the blues’,” she said. Check out for retail merchants carrying book.

ICES CONVENTION The International Cake Exploration Societé annual convention is Aug. 8-11 at the Lexington Convention Center in Lexington, Ky. Registration runs through June 1. For more information, visit 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 2 ⁄3cup good-quality unsweetened cocoa powder 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon ground Mexican cinnamon (cannel, see tip) 1 ⁄4teaspoon pequin chili powder or cayenne pepper 1 ⁄2teaspoon kosher salt 1 ⁄2teaspoon baking powder

Aaron Sanchez’s Mexican brownies

Cinco de Mayo is May 5. I interviewed Aaron during a visit he made to Cincinnati’s Fox 19. He is not only an accomplished chef, but a really nice person. The cinnamon and chili powder are what make these Mexican. 2 sticks unsalted butter, plus more for greasing 2 cups sugar 4 large eggs

Preheat the oven to

350 degrees. Line a 9inch by 13-inch baking dish with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on two sides. Press the paper into the corners of the pan and lightly grease the paper with butter. Melt the two sticks of butter in a nonstick saucepan over mediumlow heat; do not boil. Remove from the heat

and let cool slightly. Add the sugar, eggs and vanilla to the saucepan, and stir with a wooden spoon until combined. Add the cocoa, flour, cinnamon, chili powder, salt and baking powder and mix until smooth. Spread the batter in the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out fudgy, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the pan on a rack, then use the parchment paper to lift out the brownies before slicing. Makes 18.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Regular cinnamon works well, too.

It was during a cooking class on Derby Day favorites that the question came up about which mint is the best for juleps. I use spearmint since it’s sweeter than peppermint. And I make a simple syrup out of water, sugar and mint leaves. The syrup is not only good for mint juleps but is so tasty in Rita other Heikenfeld chilled RITA’S KITCHEN drinks. I’ve shared the recipe for juleps along with my clone of Kentucky Derby pie (even the name is copyrighted!) before, but for those of you who don’t have the recipes, check out my blog for both.

Waycross plans summer workshop for youngsters Waycross Community Media is offering a 10week summer workshop for middle and high school students led by Cincinnati filmmaker Bob Leibold. The workshop will introduce students in grades six through 12 to the process of filmmaking. The students will create a short film (between 4-7 minutes), complete with credits and soundtrack, while learning the fundamentals of how films are created. This is a hands-on workshop. The process will begin in the concept stage where the students will create rounded characters, determine a plot and follow a storyline. The students will write a script with the

help of workshop leaders. Once the script has been approved, the students will serve as cast and crew. After the filming has been completed, they will help in the editing process. The workshop will conclude with a premier party for friends and family, with each student receiving a DVD copy of the completed project. This is an opportunity for children to be exposed to several new skills and to have a tangible result to show teachers, college admissions officers, and family. Waycross will offer separate workshops for middle and high school students. Each workshop will have one session each week for 10 weeks.

The workshops will be on Thursdays, June 6 to Aug. 8 (excluding July 4); students in grades nine to 12 will meet from 2-5 p.m. while students in grades six to eight will meet from 6-9 p.m. The premier party for both groups is scheduled for 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 16. There is a registration fee of $100 for this workshop, and registration will be limited to 12 students per session. To register online, visit For information, call 513-825-2429. Waycross Community Media coordinates community media and internet services for Forest Park, Greenhills, Colerain Township and Springfield Township.

During the Waycross camp, students gain skills to produce programs and learn techniques for filming.

cations for the American Cancer Society. “Whether you resolve to create a Relay For Life team, exercise, quit smoking, or volunteer, you can make a real, tangible difference.” One challenge with any New Year’s resolution is to sustain your commitment. Many of us start off the year on the right foot, but as the year progresses our good intentions tend to fall to the wayside. Some clear steps can help shore up your commitment to fight cancer. By including a plan to volunteer or develop healthier behaviors, you can help make 2013 the year you achieve your resolution. Considering one-third of the cancer deaths in the U.S. each year can be attributed to diet and physical inactivity habits, including being overweight and obese, focusing on your health is a great way

to start the New Year – no matter how many times you’ve tried in the past. This year, to help turn those resolutions into a reality, try four quick tips to help you stay on track: set and write down specific goals, track your progress, plan for temptations, and create a support system.

Make specific goals

If you set specific goals, it’s easier to know when you’ve accomplished them – and easier to give yourself kudos for doing so. For example, if your goal is to eat healthy, try setting specific subgoals, such as eating at least two servings of fruit a day or choosing whole grains over refined. Perhaps your goal is to get involved with the Society, start by calling the Society at 1-800-227-2345, to discuss opportunities available in your area, choose a Society event such as Relay For Life or a volunteer opportunity such as Road to Recovery then identify your commitment based on timeframes that work for your schedule. “The more specific you are in identifying your goal, the more successful you will be in developing an effective plan of action to achieve it,” said Colleen

Doyle, director of nutrition and physical activity for the American Cancer Society. “You’ll be more successful if you also take long-term goals and break them down into shortterm goals. For example, instead of focusing on losing 60 pounds this year, focus on losing five pounds each month,” Doyle said. “By setting manageable goals, you’re more likely to achieve them – and to stay motivated to make even more progress.”

Track your progress

Keeping a food or exercise journal can keep you honest about how much you’re eating or exercising. It can also help you pinpoint problem areas. For example, you may be spending too many calories on snacks or not eating enough whole grains. A journal can also help you see how close you are to meeting your goals – which often is closer than you think. Keeping an updated calendar can also help you to identify your availability to volunteer and by planning in advance you can better determine the time commitment involved with the activity you have chosen.

Plan for temptations Once you identify problem areas, find ways to counteract them by planning in advance. Doyle suggests not trusting your willpower alone to overcome temptations: “If you’re trying to eat less sugar but that ‘hot doughnut’ sign tempts you on your way to work, find a different route.” The problems you’ve had maintaining good eating and exercise habits may not mean you have little willpower, but that you’re relying too much on it.

Create a support system

Whatever your goal, you’ll need a support network – with both people and information – to help you reach it. If you’ve set an exercise goal, find a friend to join in the plan and help keep each other accountable. Or if you’re trying to volunteer, encourage your loved ones to do the same and identify times and opportunities in which you can volunteer together. The American Cancer Society’s Web site is full of resources to help you get healthy, including calculators to help you determine your ideal body weight, how many calories you need to eat each day, and what your target heart rate should be during exercise. You can also sign up for our Healthy Living newsletter. Lastly, remember getting healthier is a goal you can achieve. Starting the year focused on your health means you’re on the right track to improving it. To learn how the American Cancer Society can help with your goal to stay well and adopt healthy lifestyle behaviors, visit or call us any time at 1-800227-2345.
