Residents get look at streetscape plans By Jennie Key

Residents from Colerain Township had a chance to look over the preliminary streetscape plan for Colerain Avenue at a public meeting last week. The April 29 meeting was sparsely attended, but consultant Clete Benken, a principal at the design firm of Kinzelman Kline Gossman, gave a brief overview and answered questions for the handful of residents in attendance. Resident Ed Lohstroh said he came out of curiosity. His home is behind Stone Creek Towne Center and he said he had heard rumors about the future of his property. Eventually, the board of trustees will have to decide what plan to adopt, how much they are willing to spend and how to pay for it. But before they do that, they want input from residents and the business community. Township officials have been meeting with groups of business owners to get input on the plan. Frank Birkenhauer, assistant administrator and economic development director, said the plan was presented at a meeting of the Colerain Township Business Association, as well. “We want the businesses and residents of the township to tell us what they think, and what they want,” Birkenhauer said. “We need the public’s opinion so that our end result is truly representative of what our residents would like to see for our main corridor.” Now, township officials have posted the plan and a survey online to get even more input from residents. The plan and the survey are available on the township’s website at Copies of the survey are available


Colerain Township resident Ed Lohstroh looks over displays at a meeting to share streetscape plans for the Colerain Avenue corridor with the public and get input on the preliminary plans. at the Colerain Township Government Complex, 4200 Springdale Road. Colerain Township officials have been talking about the streetscape plan since 2007. They hired a consultant for a fee not to exceed $120,000 to help the township develop a plan to tie together the township’s commercial district with a streetscape addressing aesthetics, and utility. Birkenhauer says a corridor identity and plan will help drive private redevelopment, investment

and job growth. Benken laid out a concept plan that sectioned Colerain Avenue into distinct regions or districts, with areas such as a regional retail, local commercial center, industrial zone and an automotive district interspersed with local mixed use areas. “Your automotive market is one of the strongest in the region,” he said. “And three of the highest grossing chain restaurants in Greater Cincinnati (Quaker Steak & Lube, Olive Garden, and Logan’s Steakhouse) are on the outlots at

Stone Creek. The mall is struggling, but this too shall pass. “Reinvestment in the mall will eventually occur. The board wants beautification, but the thrust is to drive economic development and improvement to property values.” Benken said the township will have to pick its spot to start, and he believes it will be the area near the mall, as that will bring the quickest … payoff. “You have to invest where you think you’re going to get the greatest impact,” he said.

Colerain Township trustees say they are simply laying down the ground rules in a new code of conduct adopted at the April 27 meeting. The code is for the public who address the board, and it lays out a number of suggestions for those who want to bring items before the board at a public meeting. Some are standard now – Sign in if you want to speak; address the board not department managers or township employees; and common courtesy and respect is expected toward the board. The new policy does not set a hard and fast time limit, but the policy does say that “lengthy, repetitive, redundant or immaterial comments will not be allowed to continue.” The policy also requests that people addressing the board limit

their comments to 5 minutes. Trustee Jeff Ritter says the code is designed to lay out the board’s expectations and is not intended to prevent public con- Deters versation with the board or make it difficult to address the trustees. He said the attorney general has indicated that townships may limit the time for public comment and adopt rules for meetings. “Failure to respect these guidelines while addressing the board can result in the board asking a resident to step away from the podium,” he said. “And failure to do so will result in the board declaring the citizen to be disorderly and they will be escorted by a law enforcement officer from the meeting,” said



Ritter. Trustee Dennis Deters said the intent is not to restrain free speech but to enable township business to be conducted in a timely and orderly fashion. “We have an obligation to listen to the residents of the township,” he said. “It is an integral part of what we do.” Former trustee Bernie Fiedeldey says he doesn’t like the idea of a time limit. He said he abolished a time limit when he came onto the board, and suggested the trustees

also adopt a code of conduct for the board of trustees. The new policy also says outbursts, such as clapping, cheering, booing or interjecting comments from those in attendance is not acceptable and if repeated, could be cause for removal from the meeting. Trustee Joseph Wolterman voted for the adoption of the code, but reminded the board and the public that control of township meetings is the responsibility of the person with the gavel – the president of the board. “It’s up to the chair to see that the meetings are orderly and in control,” Wolterman said. The code passed unanimously. The Colerain Township Board of Trustees meets at 7 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesday of most months in the Colerain Township administrative complex, 4200 Springdale Road.

Bunny Borchelt retires from SON Ministries By Jennie Key

When the alarm rings this week, Bunny Borchelt plans to turn it off and go back to sleep. She’s retired. After close to 30 years as executive director she has turned over the keys to Serving Our Neighbor Ministries. The emergency pantry has been her ministry since she had an encounter with an angel she says changed her life.

A room mother at her daughter Kristen’s class at Colerain Elementary School in the 1980s, she watched a young boy layer on sweatshirts because he had no coat. She tried to find the boy to help him and no one else knew who she was talking about. “They told me they didn’t have a student like the one I described,” she said. “But I figured it out: He was an angel – it was a confirmation. God had told me to take care of those in need.” And she started the work

that became SON Ministries, based at Groesbeck United Methodist Church, 8871 Colerain Ave. It eventually grew and the ministry began distributing emergency food and clothing, and occasionally helping with rent for needy families in certain areas including Colerain Township and parts of Springfield and Green townships. It was an ecumenical undertaking, enjoying the support of a number of local churches, with no regard as to denomination. Over the years, thousands and thousands of cans of green beans and corn and jars of peanut butter and spaghetti sauce and other food items passed from the hands of people who had enough to those who didn’t. SON Ministries was the gateway and Bunny was the gatekeeper. The needs never lessened. As she leaves SON, the needy still come for emergency food and whatever help can be provided.

Bunny Borchelt is the executive director of SON Ministries, an emergency food pantry supported by local churches, businesses and the community. The pantry operates out of Groesbeck United Methodist Church. The groceries, clothing and money come from several supportive churches, community groups and individuals who make donations every month. Monetary contributions are tax-deductible, she said. SON has volunteers helping out regularly as well. Two, Walt and Carol Watson, are taking on the job of running the ministry now that Bunny is leaving. The Watsons believe God has called them to the job, and so does Bunny. Carol used to work with Hamilton County Jobs and Family Ser-

Club last week when the group enrolled her in its Book of Golden Deeds. “This award is one of the most esteemed awards presented by the exchange club,” said Gary Schroeder, who presented Bunny with the award. “It is reserved for only those whose unselfish, giving principles have truly made an impact on not only their community, but more importantly in the lives of others. “Bunny’s dedication, perseverance and faith should be an inspiration to us all.”

vices, so she is no stranger to the demands of the work. Walt says the couple always planned to work this way after retirement. “We will never be able to replace Bunny, but we believe this is what God has for us,” he said. Bunny says that made it easier to go, although she says God gave her the nod that it was time to rest. “I doubt I am really retiring,” she said. “I need to rest up. I know he has something else for me to do.” Bunny was recognized by the Northwest Exchange

Mt. Healthy schools sell more buildings By Jennie Key

Mount Healthy City Schools sold at auction April 22 two of the six buildings it is closing, leaving the district with three unsold properties. At the auction run by Semple and Associates, Golden Leaf Baptist Church in College Hill bought Greener Elementary School for $83,000 and Steve Krebs bought the old bus garage for $95,000. Superintendent David Horine said a 10 percent buyer-premium will be added to the high bid to determine the purchase amount. That 10 percent flows through the district as the commission for Semple and Associates Inc., the firm handling the auction for the district. Krebs said he bought the garage for personal use. Golden Leaf minister of property Sil Watkins said his church plans to use Greener Elementary for community outreach. “It’s not a school. Our vision is a combination, multi-purpose outreach with basketball, baseball, soccer and activities and programs for the entire community,” he said. “It won’t be limited to any group.” The district sold some property prior to the auction: Springfield Township bought Frost Elementary School for

Horine Roetting $165,000 earlier this month, and the city of Mount Healthy entered into a contract with the school district to buy Duvall Elementary for

$332,000 April 19. John Pennell, executive director for administrative services for the district, said the offers included some or all of the demolition costs of the buildings. There were no auction offers for the bus lot, South Junior High or New Burlington Elementary. Superintendent David Horine said NAI Bergman, a broker, will work with the district to

market and sell the properties outright. Springfield Township Assistant Administrator Chris Gilbert said the township is currently negotiating to buy the bus lot property. The district has building three new schools set to open 2010 and 2011. The Ohio Schools Facilities Commission is paying $57.2

million of the $90 million cost. Mount Healthy is closing eight buildings and selling six. The district will put fields in at the Hoop Elementary and the high school sites. The North Elementary School is being built on the former North Junior High School site. Four schools and the bus lot and garage

are being sold. Horine said he was pleased and disappointed with the auction outcome. “I am pleased with the buildings we sold, but I had hoped to sell New Burlington as well,” he said. “I am still hopeful that in upcoming months as we list these schools for sale that we will be able to sell the property.”

THE BEST RESALE VALUE Most house hunters don’t often think about what will happen when they sell their next home. But resale value should be an important part of your consideration. Different features resell better than others. The most important feature is always location. A home with a beautiful view will always sell better than others. It is best to buy a home that is in the mid range compared to other homes in the neighborhood. And while it is good to be close to amenities such as schools and shopping, you want to make sure the neighborhood is away from busy traffic. Make sure your new home has plenty of storage space and bathrooms. The master bedroom should have a walk-in closet and a connecting bathroom. There should be ample closet space throughout the house. A two or three car garage has great resale value. The kitchen is the most important room in the house. Make sure it is large enough for entertaining and has easy access to the backyard and to the family room. When you do find your dream home, make sure you can resell it for a good price, just in case your dreams change.

New one-day miracle for denture sufferers

Are you not eating what you want to because of difficulties with your dentures? Do they wander, shift or tilt? Are you replacing them all the time? Have you been told you don’t have enough bone for traditional dental implants? If you said yes to any of these questions, don’t hesitate to call the dental office of Dr. Christopher Omeltschenko to discuss the Mini Dental Implant System, or MDI, which can stabilize your own denture in less than two hours.

MDIs, which measure 1.8 millimeters in diameter, are basically smaller versions of traditional implants that can be placed without the surgical opening of the gums. “If you can handle visiting your dentist in the morning, having the MDI system placed in less that two hours and then going out and enjoying lunch at your favorite restaurant while you eat comfortably, talk and smile with confidence, then you’re ready for this process,” says Dr. Omeltschenko. “It’s that easy. With MDIs your denture feels secure and is held firmly in place. At about a third of the price of traditional implants, they’re extremely affordable, too,” he adds.

Mount Healthy Mayor Joe Roetting says the city bought the Duvall Elementary School property from the school district to control development of the 8-acre parcel. The school is at 1140 Compton Road. “It’s one of the last opportunities for infill development in the city,” he said. “We wanted to make sure whatever happens there fits with the city’s 20-year land use plan.” The mayor said council was unanimous in its decision to buy the property. “We were fortunate we were in the financial position to do it,” he said. Roetting said the city could simply hold the property for future development if no developers seem interested, but added the city has already had a few nibbles. “There has been some interest already,” he said. “We will sit down with those folks and see how their plans fit.”

Mock crash reminds students of driving dangers

Northwest High School’s teen driving committee, the “Driving Angels,” staged a motor vehicle crash, last week, followed by a multimedia presentation to remind students of the importance of traffic safety. “It’s a good time of the year. With prom, nice weather, and the anticipation of graduation and summer break, we feel it is important that we plan something to encourage our friends and classmates to make the best choices possible as drivers and passengers,” said junior Sam Paluga, a Driving Angels committee member. Local partners from the Colerain Police and Fire Departments, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, University Hospital Trauma, Hamilton County Safe Communities, and Northwest Local School District’s administration and staff supported the Driving Angels traffic safety efforts. Using a demolished car, participating students dramatized the moments just after a motor vehicle crash occurs. The goal of this activity was to


Northwest High School's Driving Angels organized a mock crash to remind students of the importance of making good decisions as drivers and passengers. Local police and fire and University Hospital's Air Care helicopter participated to make the exercise as realistic as possible. create a visual reminder of all the possible outcomes when poor choices or risky behaviors take place in cars.

The Colerain Police and Fire Departments responded to the staged crash as realistically as possible. The demonstration also

included a visit from the University Hospital’s Air Care helicopter. “We regularly respond to and witness car crashes. As first

responders we know first hand how these crashes can affect lives. Working with students to reinforce the importance of safe driving, can ultimately influence better actions when driving,” said Northwest school resource officer Andy Demeropolis. Following the demonstration, seniors met to the Northwest High School auditorium. There, Driving Angel members brought home lessons about wearing seatbelts, limiting distractions, following traffic laws, driving sober, and advocating that friends and family do the same. The presentation covered how the mock crash occurred, what choices and behaviors led to the crash, its consequences. A Hamilton County Sheriff’s Traffic Safety expert will provide crash logistics and expertise on how and why the crash happened. Kelly Bessel, a registered nurse from University Hospital Trauma talked about the physical injuries sustained by occupants of the car and participating students described their roles, responses, concerns, and regrets.

Catcher Cory Cook leads Northwest By Tony Meale

Two days after getting blanked 10-0 by Ross, the second-ranked Divisions IIIV team in the city, the Northwest High School baseball team was determined to make the most of its rematch April 28. And it did. The Knights trailed Ross just 2-1 through five innings of play, thanks to the efforts of Northwest senior hurler Brad Dearinger. “Brad pitched his best game of the year against Ross,” head coach Adam Grissom said. But eventually the Ross bats came alive, as Northwest lost 12-5. “We played from start to finish as best we could,” Grissom said. It was the sixth straight loss for Northwest, which dropped to 12-10 (as of May 2). The Knights began the season strong; they started 6-4 before winning six straight, earning victories over Hughes, Norwood (twice), Amelia (twice) and Mount Healthy. During that streak, Northwest averaged 15 runs per game – scoring 22 or more runs on three occasions – and yielded just 3.3 “The guys came together, and we were hitting the ball pretty well,” Grissom said. “That’s what our team is centered on.” Leading the offensive explosion has been junior

He’s the toughest out on the team.” The Knights have four other players – junior Justin Carter (.451) and seniors Joey Roberson (.409), Dearinger (.403) and Corey Flynn (.400) – hitting at or above .400. As a team, Northwest is hitting .392. “Carter and Flynn have been bright spots,” Grissom said. “Flynn hits last, but he does a great job setting up the top of the order. And Carter beings speed, hits for

power and leads the team in extra-base hits (with 11).” Carter also has a teamhigh 16 steals for Northwest, which leads the entire FAVC steals with 71. “Carter, (junior Tyler Hoehn, who has 14 steals) and Roberson (nine) all do a great job on the bases,” Grissom said. “They’re aggressive.” Other offensive contributors include junior Joey Mascari, who is hitting .371, and sophomore Rickey Bender, who is hitting .356. Unfortunately for the Knights, they followed their six-game winning streak with a six-game losing streak, falling to Monroe, Mount Healthy, Kings (twice) and Ross (twice). During that stretch, Northwest allowed an average of

10.8 runs and was shut out twice, scoring an average of just three runs per game. “We made some errors on defense, and I think that carried over to our hitting,” Grissom said. “Guys started pressing at the plate and putting pressure on themselves to get the runs back.” Defensive miscues – Northwest has committed 37 errors this season, an average of 1.7 per game – has also affected the Knights’ pitching staff, which has a team ERA of 6.15. Dearinger, Bender, junior John Lehmkuhl, senior Zach Hayes, senior Jacob Clenney, and freshman Brad Fields all have between 13 and 18 strikeouts on the season, but none has an ERA below 4.00. “Our pitching has been up and down all year, and some of that has to do with not playing the best defense,” Grissom said. “When you press, you hold the ball tighter.” Still, the Knights, which finish the season against Colerain, Hamilton and Oak Hills May 6-8, have high hopes for a tournament run. Northwest has lost in first round of the playoffs each of the last two years and three of the last four seasons. “Our goal is to keep playing good baseball,” Grissom said. “The toughest games aren’t the ones you lose by one run or 10 runs; it’s the ones where you don’t play your best from start to finish.”

Lancers fall to 14-5 after tough week

La Salle loses 3 of 5 games to end April By Anthony Amorini

Tough competition during the last 10 days of April provided a few speed bumps for La Salle’s baseball team following a 12-2 start for the Lancers. By April 30, the Lancers had fallen to 14-5 after dropping three of five games from April 21-30. But on the heels of a 712 season in 2009, head coach Joe Voegele remained positive about the direction his program is heading despite the recent losses. “(This season) is a big improvement over last year, but we lost a tough one yesterday and that set us back a little bit,” Voegele said following a La Salle loss to Elder, 12-9, April 28. Two days later, La Salle lost a heartbreaker Friday, April 30, to its rivals from Moeller, 3-2. Moeller, the top-ranked Division I team in Cincinnati and Ohio, is ranked No. 7 in the United States, according to the USA Today Baseball Super 25. La Salle was ranked No. 4 in Cincinnati with 93 points according to the Enquirer’s Division I poll for week four while trailing No. 1 Moeller (140 points, 14of-14 first-place votes), No. 2 Lakota East (119 points) and No. 3 Elder (111


La Salle High School senior pitcher Jake Meister took the mound during a home game against Elder on April 28. The Panthers scored seven runs in the first – thanks in part to several Lancer errors – before winning 12-9. points). An early-season win March 31 over Elder, 7-4, provided La Salle with much of the momentum that helped propel the Lancers through its 12-2 start, Voegele said. Moeller (20-1, 8-0) leads the Greater Catholic League South Division standings with Elder (16-3, 7-2) in second and La Salle (14-5, 7-4) in third. “I think it gave them confidence and it proved to them they could beat just about anybody,” Voegele

said of the win over Elder. “We can compete with anyone and these guys know it now.” La Salle’s impressive production at the plate has been key for the Lancers this spring. The Lancers are carrying a .389 batting average and a .472 on-base percentage as a team. “Offensively, we will be a handful for anybody,” Voegele said while looking forward to the Division I postseason. “I think we will have some (tournament)

success, but a lot of it will depend on the draw. “We have a chance to do really well, and we’ve had a history of tournament success so we’ll see how it goes,” Voegele added. Batting fourth for La Salle, senior catcher Tyler Seibel leads the GCL South Division with 34 RBI and five homes runs. He is batting .410 with 25 hits, 17 runs, seven doubles and one triple. “I think he is probably the best all-around catcher in the GCL,” Voegele said of Seibel. “This year he is playing every day and he’s really benefited from that consistency.” Senior Michael Leytze and junior David Hebeler lead La Salle with 26 hits apiece this spring. Leytze, a co-captain for La Salle, is batting .464 with eight doubles, two triples, 16 RBI, 30 runs and seven stolen bases. “Leytze is our hottest hitter right now after struggling a bit at the beginning of the year,” Voegele said. Hebeler is batting .448 with five doubles, 21 RBI and 18 runs. “Hebeler is a catalyst for us and there is no doubt about that. He is one of the best players that nobody knows about,” Voegele said of the versatile Hebeler who can play at either corner in the infield or in the outfield. “He could probably pitch, too, if I needed it,” Voegele joked. “He is just an unusual player. I don’t think I’ve ever had anyone like him and I’ve been coaching

a long time.” Senior Reid Rizzo, La Salle’s other co-captain, is batting .393 with 22 hits, 22 RBI, seven stolen bases, 26 runs and one home run. Junior Zach Dillman is also batting above the .400 mark for La Salle with a .490 average, 25 hits, 13 RBI, 15 runs and one home run. “These guys have worked hard all year. They’ve been hitting and lifting since September to get to this point,” Voegele said of the Lancers’ potent offense. “Their confidence is way up this year because we are in much better condition and we are stronger.” From the mound, a number of players have contributed for La Salle including senior Jake Meister (3-1 with 1.75 ERA), senior Joe Andrews (3-0 with 2.67 ERA), senior Aaron Sparks (2-0 with 2.42 ERA), senior Joel Feldkamp (3-1 with 2.44 ERA) and junior Drew Campbell (1-1 with 4.07 ERA).

Refer to scripture

In response to Ann Thompson's comments and that health care reform is Christian legislation, I suggest that she read the bill and refer to scripture before making such a false comparison. The comparison of the freeing of slaves, which upheld one’s constitutional rights to life and liberty, to discarding millions of innocent babies their constitutional rights of life and liberty through means of mainstreaming abortion upon demand within the health care system is quite the opposite. There are many who truly want health care reform and that could have taken place if that were the true intention. Shame on you, Ann Thompson, for such bias and misleading information.

As a columnist, you too have a responsibility to provide truth in reporting. Theresa Czyzyk Lakefront Drive Green Township

Some questions

In her response letter (April 28), Ann Thompson states at the end, “Caring for living people should be their (the Catholic churches) priority.” Is she implying that aborted babies were not living people? And, on another note, it is true that the Catholic Church is not perfect and has made some errors from time to time throughout history. After all, it’s an institution run by people who are subject to

CH@TROOM April 28 questions

Do you, or would you, allow your high school-age child to go on a spring break trip? Why or why not? “My kids seemed to enjoy going on spring break with the family and other friends. They could have their freedom on our vacations but not be subjected to the crowded rooms, some idiot activities and police scrutiny. We changed coast lines in Florida to avoid the spring revelers. I do not envy today’s parents with the new drinking age, drugs, camera phones and the Ben Roethlisberger types of the world. I feel sick about the young man from St X who died recently on his spring break. He had a wonderful life ahead of him and now can only serve as a warning to all who might follow. Maybe it is not worth it! Go Figure!” T.D.T. “Never! Why is it that parents think their kids need to go away on their own before they are 18 on a trip that will mostly be unsupervised? Even if chaperones are present they can’t possibly monitor every minute of every child there (Natalee Holloway is a prime example). “Usually when something tragic happens (the St. Xavier football player who fell to his death, highly intoxicated, or the Notre Dame student who crashed her car full of fellow students, most of whom did not wear seatbelts), it’s preventable. Letting an inexperienced person drive a whole car full of students (if they are under 18 drivers in Ohio, they are not allowed to have more than one other person in the car with them unless related) on a long trip, or another to go where there will always be alcohol just invites trouble.” R.L.H. “Yes I would.

Reform supporters disguised as Christian

I would like to take this opportunity to respond to the guest column topic “Health care reform.” One single sentence might do the trick and that would be, what planet are you on? But let’s go one step further and point out that this bill promotes the agenda of those who use the disguise of Christianity to further their frightening socialistic platform. Our Constitution does not mandate health care for its citizens, health care is a privilege provided through an employer, privately by the individual or we don’t have to have it at all (if we so choose). Does our system need to be tweaked? Absolutely, but not at the expense of the middle class, and rest assured we will be the suckers paying for it. This bill passed only by the grace of back door dealing and an executive order on the abortion issue that, by the way, is not the

law, it can be rescinded on a moment’s notice. Oh and the individual that bought into that executive order is now jumping ship, much like Tim many of the other Suerkamp rats that can’t take the heat. The Community deception and Press guest down right arrocolumnist gance of the people supporting this mess is beyond comprehension. I would like to refer to some of the statements made in support of this legislation. Example: “Let’s pass the bill then find out what’s in it.” What? “Oh I never read the bills anyway, why should I?” What? Lastly, let’s go back to the Christian invocation that the author of this letter keeps referring


to: No true Christian in this country wants to see anyone without the proper care they need. We are the most generous country on the planet. If you want to change anything, let’s do it the right way: By the true letter of the law and Constitution. The people that oppose this criminal legislation are no more uninformed than those who have not read the bill. We the majority of Americans would just like someone in Washington to actually listen to the majority. We want the country to stay the “United States of America” not the “Un-United Socialistic States of America.” The author of the letter I’m responding to was right about one thing: This is a great country and starting next November the people that really care will be taking it back. You can take that to the bank! Tim Suerkamp is a resident of Monfort Heights.

Parents should watch for hill-hopping clues Spring is in the air, the weather is nice and driving conditions on Colerain Township roadways are good. Students are preparing for prom, and graduation is not far off. The Colerain Township Police Department, as well as many other departments have experienced an increase in traffic crashes involving high speed and motorists following too close. Our special concern is accidents involving our young drivers. Police are seeing an increase in what the young drivers call “hill hopping.” What is “hill hopping,” you ask? Well, “hill hopping” involves cars going fast enough to go airborne while driving on roadways with hills. The deep cuts into the pavement at the scene of an auto accident and the lack of skid marks demonstrate the young driver’s attempts to stop their car. The evidence is clear to police offi-

cers investigating the crashes that occur. Some drivers hill hop and never get caught because they are lucky enough maintain control of the car as it goes airborne on the hills, however the evidence of the hopping is clear to see if you know how or what to look for. Are your sons or daughters having a problem with the exhaust system falling off the car they drive? Is your car experiencing a leak from the motor oil or transmission pan? Are the hubcaps loose or missing after a night out with your child driving? How about the front end alignment? Does your mechanic recommend the need for the alignment on a regular basis? These examples can provide parents some evidence that your car is being abused by the driver. Perhaps you car hasn’t had any of these problems, but there still can be signs of “hill hopping.”

Those who can’t love their neighbors as themselves The scriptures direct us to “love your neighbor as yourself (Matthew: 22:39). The “as yourself,” is usually considered a fait accompli. We presuppose we do love ourselves. Yet, myriads of us don’t. And if we don’t, relationships, friendships and marriages are negatively affected. Over the last century psychology has recognized an almost epidemiclike rise in narcissism. This term is misunderstood by most. Narcissistic persons are imagined as people over-dosed on pride, absorbed in themselves and oblivious to the needs and feelings of anymore else. This persona is a veneer, an unconscious strategy, a compensation to hide their core perception of their inferiority. Narcissists usually come from ade-

quate-appearing families. They are impoverished, nevertheless, by the lack of appreciation of self conveyed to them in their upbringing. did not Father Lou get They enough attenGuntzelman tion from parents guardians, Perspectives or especially attention in the way they needed it. Narcissism is not too much self but, rather, not enough self. As young children, their true self was not acknowledged and fostered. They were not permitted enough authentic and spontaneous expression of who they really are. Author and psychotherapist

Stephanie Dowrick states in her book, “Intimacy & Solitude,” “The narcissistic adult is not one who has been ‘spoilt’ by too much attention, but someone whose life has been spoilt because those who cared for him in infancy and childhood were unable to see or know who he was, and to respond to that. Instead they saw a reflection of their own needs, or someone who intruded upon their own needs.” This treatment gradually forms and launches into life an empty person who doesn’t know who he is, who feels inadequate, and certainly doesn’t (as scripture asks) love the pathetic person he perceives himself to be. So, he or she learns to conceal their sad embarrassment by acting superior in their demeanor, words and

behavior. They seek to please to gain acceptance. They thrive on constant praise and approval to prop up their concocted image. The affirmations and love offered to narcissists never seem to be enough. If early emotional neglect from significant people implied to them they were unlovable and worthless, they are likely to be distrustful of the people who claim to love or admire them now. Why? Dowrick says, “This is because it is impossible to accept the love of others until you love your own self.” What are people to do who are in a relationship with a narcissisticallytinged person? First, the narcissist must become aware (perhaps with professional help) of his or her condition and be

willing to work with their own inner life. Second, if their partner in the relationship genuinely loves them, then the partner (perhaps also with professional assistance) can learn suitable affirmations and expressions of love to be of help in their growth. Hope for progress comes from the intense personal work of the narcissist, the grace and love of the Creator and the genuine love of their partner. Real love is creative. It helps to both reveal and actualize as yet unrecognized potentials in the person loved. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Salad add-ons will turn your lettuce’s head A plain old lettuce salad can be pretty boring. But in today’s produce sections of the grocery, you’ll find bags of mixed greens to add a little extra something to your lettuce salad. And typically, these bags aren’t cheap. Well guess what? You can grow most of these greens, and you can do it in a pot on your own back porch! I call them my “salad bowl add-ons,” and it’s real-

ly simple to do. Here’s how: 1) Get yourself two or three (or more), 12- to 14inch wide shallow containers, always making sure they have good drainage. Plastic bowls, bushel baskets, anything close will do just fine. 2) Fill your containers with a good grade potting mix, a little Osmocote for a gradual feeding, and some Soil Moist to help cut down on our watering. And now

you’re ready to plant! (Feel free to use natural fertilizers as well!) 3) So what do you put in your salad bowl add-ons containers? Try growing Upland cress, dill, radicchio, arugula, basil, parsley, chives, mixed greens, mustard greens and of course, my favorite, cilantro. Any of those greens which can be added to a salad bowl of lettuce will work. 4) Plant your add-ons closer than you would nor-

mally, keeping in mind you’ll be harvesting these on a regular basis. Many of your plants are “cut and come again,” which means as your remove or harvest the young leaves, more will re-grow later. So by planting several containers, you can rotate your harvesting from

May 5, 2010

What moms are asking for – recipes Mother’s Day is coming up, so I wanted to devote this column to all the requests from our Community Press Rita a n d Heikenfeld R e c o r d e r moms. Rita’s kitchen And I know I preach this all the time, but remember all the “moms,” biological or otherwise, who’ve been a blessing to you. They come in many forms and guises! Give them a call, a card, or an invitation to share your table.

Grilled chicken breast with watermelonjalapeño salsa

Jessie, my daughter-inlaw, made this and it’s a favorite at everyone’s house now. The salsa is great with just about any kind of grilled meat. If you can’t find mango, then papaya will work well.


1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 teaspoon chili powder 3 ⁄4 teaspoon cumin 1 ⁄2 teaspoon salt 3 garlic cloves, minced Four 6-ounce chicken breasts Put together in bag and marinate in refrigerator for at least four hours.


For Georgeann Kennedy who wanted a fruit salsa recipe. I’m going her one better with this duo.

2 cups watermelon 1 cup mango 1 ⁄4 cup finely chopped red onion 2 tablespoon cilantro 2 tablespoon jalapeño pepper

1 tablespoon lime juice 1 ⁄2 teaspoon sugar 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt

Mix together and put on top of grilled chicken.

Like Olive Garden Pasta e Fagioli

OK, I’m sharing this again especially for Dottie, a Northern Kentucky reader who lost her recipe. “It’s been a favorite, everyone loves it and I can’t find it,” she said. Happy Mother’s Day, Dottie! 1 to 11⁄4 pounds pound ground beef (Sirloin is good) 1 generous cup diced onion 1 generous cup julienned carrot 1 generous cup chopped celery 1 very generous teaspoon minced garlic 28-ounce can diced tomatoes 15-ounce red kidney


beans, undrained 15-ounce Great Northern beans, undrained 15-ounce tomato sauce 12-ounce V-8 1 tablespoon white vinegar Salt and pepper to taste 1 teaspoon each: dried oregano and basil 1 ⁄2 teaspoon dried thyme 1 ⁄2 pound ditalini pasta

Brown beef and drain off most of fat. Add onion, carrot, celery and garlic and sauté for 10 minutes. Add rest of ingredients, except pasta, and simmer one hour. About 50 minutes into simmering, cook pasta in boiling water just until it is al dente, or slightly tough. Drain. Add to soup. Simmer about 10 more minutes and serve. Serves eight.

Easy potato pancakes

For Mrs. Ratterman. Check out our Web version for potato pancakes like Perkins restaurant at Now, don’t turn up your nose at frozen shredded potatoes. These are actually my preference in this dish, since they keep their color and are ready to go.

1 pound shredded fresh potatoes, or frozen potatoes, thawed and squeezed very dry 2 eggs, lightly beaten 2 tablespoons flour or bit more to hold mixture together Salt and pepper or seasoning salt to taste 1 small onion, minced finely Handful of fresh parsley, minced

Mix everything together. With a small ice cream scoop or 1⁄4 cup measuring cup, scoop out portions of potatoes on hot griddle or omelet pan which has been filmed with a light coating of olive or other healthy oil. Cook until golden brown on both sides.

Tips from readers: Cottage cheese pie

Boy, the recipes keep pouring in for this heirloom pie. Thanks to everyone who is sharing. We’ll keep an active archive of them. Now some folks have been having trouble with the baking time on the cottage cheese pie with Splenda printed recently. Joan Maegley of Delhi

called me as hers was baking – I told her to continue to bake it at 350 and if it browned too much before it was done, to cover edges with foil. Joan reported back that it took about 1 hour and 15 minutes (original recipe said 30 minutes). “It was perfect,” she said. If any of you are having trouble with any of the cottage cheese pie recipes and the baking time, just bake it until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out fairly clean.

Rooting out recipes

• Requests for Ruth Lyons coffeecake are still coming in. You can e-mail or call us (check out the info at the end of this column) if you want the recipe. I have been getting so many requests I can’t keep up! • Sauerbraten gravy too light. Mrs. Ratterman makes this yummy dish “but the gravy is too light – any way to darken it without using Kitchen Bouquet?” Rita Nader Heikenfeld is Macy’s certified culinary professional.

On Saturday, May 8, letter carriers around the country will host the nation’s largest single-day food drive as part of the National Association of Letter Carriers ( Stamp Out Hunger! effort. Now in its 18th year, Stamp Out Hunger! has collected more than 1.9 million pounds of food since its inception in 1993. Locally, Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana residents are invited to participate in the effort by simply leaving a sturdy bag containing canned goods or non-perishable foods next to their mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery on Saturday, May 8. Staple items such as canned meat products (tuna, chicken, ham, spaghetti with meatballs, etc.), peanut butter, canned vegetables and fruits, soups, and macaroni and cheese are particularly needed. Food items should be in non-breakable containers, such as boxes and cans. Local letter carriers will collect donations from homes throughout the region and deliver them to the Freestore Foodbank. There, the food will be distributed through a network of more than 350 nonprofit partner agencies serving the Freestore Foodbank’s 20 county distribution area. Last year, local letter carriers collected more than 155,000 pounds of food for the Freestore Foodbank during the food drive. This represents the largest volume of food the Freestore Foodbank receives from any local food drive. For more information about the 18th Annual Stamp Out Hunger! effort, visit www.helpstampout

The Rooster’s Nest is a perfect place to relax and enjoy a break from busy routines. Walk on the 25 acres of woodlands, fish in the 1.25 acre stocked pond, curl up with a book or sit outside by the campfire. Breakfast is served in the spacious gathering room overlooking the pond while birds and squirrels entertain at the feeders.
