Public hearing on Rumpke air permit By Jennie Key jkey@communitypress.com

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency is asking for public comment on a change to the air permit at Rumpke Sanitary Landfill for new pollution control equipment. The Ohio EPA will conduct an information session and public hearing regarding a draft air permit for a thermal oxidizer at Montauk Energy at the Rumpke Sanitary Landfill, 10795 Hughes Road. The hearing will be 6:30 p.m., Thursday, May 27, at the Colerain Township Community and Senior Center, 4300 Springdale Road. Amanda Pratt, spokeswoman for Rumpke, says a thermal oxidizer destroys unusable compounds at the Montauk recovery plant with less odor. “No additional emissions are being created,” she said. “But an air permit modification is necessary because now these compounds are being processed through the oxidizer to reduce odor.” Heather Lauer, spokeswoman for the Ohio EPA, said in a release that the new equipment would replace an older, smaller thermal oxidizer and is designed to limit odors coming from the methane collection plant. The device would, however, have the potential to emit additional carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides. The new thermal oxidizer would be limited to a maximum

A new thermal oxidizer, a pollution control device, will be installed at this Montauk gas recovery facility on the Rumpke Sanitary Landfill.

Draft permit online

The permit is at wwwapp.epa.ohio.gov/dapc/permits_issued/357908.pdf. annual output of 69.77 tons per year of carbon monoxide and 16.52 tons per year of nitrogen oxides. Four main areas at the landfill have been identified as generating odors: • waste that has not been covered with soil, otherwise known as the working face of the landfill; • an ongoing subsurface fire; • the composting area; • the methane recovery plant. The thermal oxidizer is designed to capture and control odors only associated with the methane recovery facility. Pratt said the new device will

cost about $1 million. It is being installed by Montauk Energy, but Rumpke must obtain the permit because the company owns the site. During the information session, Ohio EPA and Hamilton County officials will present information about the draft permit conditions and answer questions from the public. During the public hearing, which immediately follows, the public can testify for the official record regarding this draft air permit. Written comments regarding this draft permit carry the same weight as those presented in testimony. Written comments must be

received no later than Wednesday, June 2. Lauer says the information session and public hearing will only address the air permit related to the thermal oxidizer. Citizens with questions or concerns regarding the subsurface fire at Rumpke Landfill may contact Darla Peelle with Ohio EPA at 614-644-2160. Written comments about the draft air permit for the thermal oxidizer should be directed in writing to: Pete Sturdevant, Hamilton County Department of Environmental Services, 250 William Howard Taft Parkway, Cincinnati, Ohio, 45219. Comments also can be made by phone during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., by calling Pete Sturdevant at 946-7777.

Credit flexibility will offer students options By Jennie Key jkey@communitypress.com

We know how students traditionally get high school credit. They sit at a desk, listen to a teacher, take notes, pass tests and complete the course. But Senate Bill 311 directed Ohio schools to adopt a plan that enables students to earn units of high school credit based on a demonstration of subject area competency, instead of, or in combination with, completing hours of seat time in the classroom. The Northwest Board of Education adopted its credit flexibility handbook April 26, and Dan Hudson is the accountability services supervisor who is overseeing its implementation. He’s been meeting with administrators and teachers and will take the program to parents and students at two meetings – one at each high school – that are scheduled next week. Northwest High School Assistant Principal Marlon Styles Jr. says it’s too early to tell what the response from parents and students will be. “We’re going to meet with par-

Want more information? Parents and students who are interested in any part of the Credit Flexibility program should attend their high school’s informational meetings. These meetings will address all areas of the Credit Flexibility program with more in-depth information on possibilities, procedures and deadlines to submit applications. Colerain High School’s meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Monday, May 17, in the ents and students and tell them about the program at our program next week,” he said. “If they choose the option, it’s important for parents to stay in constant contact with the counselor to make sure graduation requirements are on track.” Hudson said the plan for credit flexibility is designed to make more curriculum options available to students. The program can increase the depth of study possible for a particular subject, and give parents and students more control over learning time or conditions. He says it is an opportunity for students with different learning

There are a number of ways students can take advantage of credit flexibility. They can develop and successfully complete an educational option plan that has been approved by the district. They can successfully complete a college level course using the district’s post secondary enrollment option. Or, they can test out. Hudson and district math teachers just completed building a test-out exam for Algebra I. Other classes ready for test-out are senior social studies and English 4. Students interested in testing out must have maintained a B or better in the

content area for the previous two years and must achieve an 83 percent or higher on the test to show mastery and receive credit. The test may only be taken once per course. Students can also successfully demonstrate mastery through portfolios, internships, work study, independent study plans or any combination of these methods. All credit earned through a test out or mastery will receive a weight no higher than advanced. Hudson said the option has some potential drawbacks. Some students may struggle in the less structured program. Not successfully completing the options agreed to will have consequences for students such as delaying graduation. To participate, parents and students are asked to first contact the student’s counselor. An assistant principal at each high school has been assigned to oversee and lead the credit flexibility program on each campus. At Colerain, Susan Smith, 741-5074 is the designated contact. At Northwest High School, Styles, who can be reached at 742-6342, is the point person.

Monfort Heights farmers’ market set to open By Jennie Key

“We are encouraging the vendors to display information that shows how they operate, so people can see it at the market.”

jkey@communitypress.com

Monfort Heights resident Mary Hutten believes you are what you eat, but she takes it a step further. “You are what you eat ate,” she says. “That’s why it’s important to know what the people who grow your food feed their plants or their animals. You are eating that as well” Food and what goes into it has become a passion for Hutten. And it’s a passion

Mary Hutten

she wants to share. Hutten is a driving force behind the new Lettuce Eat Well Farmers’ Market set to open Friday, June 4, in Monfort Heights.

She and a committee of local residents spent a long time planning for the market, and she is eager to share good food with the community. The first question was location and Hutten says the group found an ideal spot: The market will be on the parking lot at Joy Community Church, 5000 North Bend Road. The church is happy to have the market there, and the market plans to give back to the church and the community. The vendors of the market are asked to donate 1 percent of their sales in cash or product to the church for its outreach to families in need. All of the market vendors are being questioned closely about how they grow the food they will sell. Hutten says it won’t be certified organic, but she’s been looking for vendors who raise fruits and vegetables as naturally as possible. That goes for meat and eggs, too. “You want to know what those animals have been fed,” she said. “I think it’s important.” The farmers’ market will feature in-season locally grown fruit, vegetables, meat, eggs and honey, Hutten said. She’s vetting potential vendors to make sure they will adhere to the philosophy of the market. “We are encouraging the vendors to display information that shows how they operate, so people can see it at the market,” she said.

Lettuce Eat Well Farmers’ Market will be every Friday, beginning June 4, from 3 to 7 p.m. on the front lawn of the Joy Community Church, 5000 North Bend Road. If you are interested in being a vendor at the market, contact Mary Hutten, 4811914 or e-mail mary.hutten@ cincinnatistate.edu. She said while about 80 percent of the merchandise at the market will be what people traditionally expect, she’s hoping to mix it up with some new items. For example, there will be a vendor selling microgreens: sprouts and other greens harvested at an early growth stage. Other new items will include foraged food, which is wild items, gathered in season, such as chickweed and lambs quarters, and fermented foods. Hutten says there will also be fresh and dried herbs, jams and jellies, Shadeau breads (breads from Over-the-Rhine), a limited number of plants and fresh cut flowers, as well. New vendors may join as the market develops. The market’s organizing committee includes Hutten, David and Peggy Lopez, Ana and Mick Bosarge, Karen Kerst and Barb Piatt. Lopez says she is looking forward to the opening. “Finally,” she said. “We see these markets in other communities, but at last we have a good farmers market on the west side, here in Green Township. We are really excited. Mary is so optimistic, it really has been a pleasure to work with her.” Hutten is looking forward to the opening as well. “Everyone we talk to is almost as excited as we are,” she said. “We’ve been working on it since February, and while it’s been in people’s minds before, this time, it’s really going to happen.”

Bike blessing at Hope Lutheran is May 16

JENNIE KEY/STAFF

The annual blessing of the bikes will be May 16 at Hope Lutheran Church.

The third annual Blessing of the Bikes rolls into Hope Lutheran Church on Sunday, May 16. The “Blessing of the Bikes” is a tradition among motorcycle riders in the spring to get together and ask God’s favor for the riders and their cycles during the riding season. The blessing service starts at 11 a.m. at Hope Lutheran Church, 4695 Blue Rock Road at the cor-

ner of Livingston Road. “In the early spring, some motorcyclists are anxious to pull the cover off the ol’ two wheelers, charge the batteries, and impatiently wait for sunshine and 60 degree weather,” said church member Mary Bryant. May has been designated as “Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month” by a number of motorcycle and vehicle organizations. Drivers are reminded to

share the road with motorcycles and to be aware of motorcycle riders at all times. Motorcyclists are also reminded to always follow the rules of the road, be alert to other drivers, and should always wear protective gear. Bryant says the church invites all bike owners to join them on May 16 “Whether it be Honda Gold Wing, other motorcycles,

May has been designated as “Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month.” mountain bikes, two-wheelers with training wheels or tricycles,” she said. The service follows coffee and doughnuts in the Fellowship Hall. The church can be contacted at 923-3370 or www.hopeonbluerock.org.

Residents not happy with rehab shelter kbackscheider@communitypress.com

Rebecca Renaud does not want to wake up again in the wee hours of the morning to find a stranger standing outside her front window. The Green Township resident enjoys the quiet seclusion of her home on Diehl Road, but she said lately she and many of her neighbors who live near the street’s dead end have become seriously concerned about the activity they’ve seen from residents of a Talbert House facility at the end of their street in Mount Airy Park. “We have major concerns,” said Renaud, a third-generation resident of Diehl Road. “We are concerned with the speed and amount of traffic on our little street,

and we are concerned with people being in our yards in the middle of the night.” She said she was recently awakened in the early morning hours by the sound of a man, standing within feet of her front window, ordering a cab on a cell phone. “He was actually picked up by a taxi in our driveway,” she said.

About Talbert House Talbert House is a communitywide nonprofit network of social services with more than 30 programs focusing on prevention, assessment, treatment and reintegration. Each year, the organization helps nearly 24,000 men, women and children across Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky overcome adversity to become healthy and productive citizens through its programs in community corrections, mental health, substance abuse and welfare-towork. Talbert House operates multiple service sites in conjunction with its affiliate, Centerpoint Health, throughout Greater Cincinnati. The Diehl Road location, which currently houses up to 65 residents in four buildings, is intended for the

rehabilitation of homeless men. Prospective residents first must pass a screening to exclude felons, arsonists, sexual predators and violent offenders before being placed at the facility. They then undergo a 48-hour evaluation upon entering the shelter house. Talbert House provides two staff members during the overnight shift to monitor shelter residents going in and out. Although residents may come and go as needed for work, medical or other valid reasons until 10 p.m., they are supposed to be in their beds by midnight unless they work second- or third-shift jobs. Source: www.talberthouse. org; Monfort Heights White Oak Community Association newsletter

Renaud said she and her neighbors support the important services the Talbert House provides, but they would like things returned to the way they were before the rehabilitation facility was managed by Talbert House. The shelter, which consists of four buildings constructed in the 1930s as part of the depression-era Civilian Conservation Corps, used to be called the Mount Airy Center and was run by Hamilton County. As of last year the county no longer had the funds to manage the center, so it requested

bids for a new organization to operate the facility. The Talbert House was the only organization to submit a bid for consideration, and took over management in September 2009. A representative from Talbert House did not return a phone message seeking comments for this story. Renaud said when the county managed the Mount Airy Center the residents of Diehl Road experience little to no problems. “We might have had one incident every eight years,” she said. “Now we have two incidents every eight days.” Diehl Road residents, along with Timberview Drive residents, met April 19 with Hamilton County Commissioner Todd Portune, Green Township Administrator Kevin Celarek and Green Township Police Chief Bart West to voice their concerns. Renaud said at the end of the meeting Portune scheduled a follow-up meeting for 6:30 p.m. Monday, May 17, at the Green Township Senior Center, 3620 Epley Lane.

Wilson wins GOP slot for 28th District

A positive experience

By Amanda Hopkins

Vicky Zwissler went door-to-door to more than 4,000 houses and phoned almost 1,000 other Republican voters as part of her campaign or the Republican primary for state representative for the 28th District. The former Wyoming city council member said she loved every minute of her journey and said she remained positive throughout the campaign. Her only disappointment was the low voter turnout for the primary election. “As the issues continue to grow, voter turnout continues to diminish,” Zwissler said.

Working for change

Despite losing the primary election, Tom Weidman said he will put his efforts behind getting Mike Wilson elected as the state representative for the 28th District. He said he agreed with Wilson on many of the fiscal issues and believes that a change is needed to cut government spending. “We need less government and we need lower taxes,” Weidman said. “I’ll work hard to see a Republican in that seat.”

A learning experience

Jeff Paul said his first campaign for an elected office was a learning experience. He said he was basically a one-man campaign and went door-to-door to about 1,000 houses in the district. He said he may run again in two years, but learned that he will have to build a bigger campaign and accept donations to really get his name and his stance on the issues into the public eye.

Mike Wilson will be running for his first public office after winning the Republican primary election for state representative for the 28th District. Wilson beat former Wyoming City Council Member Vicky Zwissler, Sycamore Township Board of Trustees President Tom Weidman and Sycamore Township resident Jeff Paul by a wide margin, taking almost 45 percent of the votes. “(Winning the Republican primary) is a recognition that hard work can pay off,” Wilson said. The Springfield Township resident said he was able to send mailers and have television and radio advertisements because of money raised through campaign fundraisers. He also went door-to-door through the district and met many people through his work with the

Wilson founded the Cincinnati Tea Party, an organization that is opposed to wasteful government spending. He credits his involvement with the Tea Party for engaging some voters who may never have voted in a primary before. “There was energy coming from a new place,” Wilson said.

that the Tea Party “message is resonating.” Wilson will face Democrat incumbent Connie Pillich and Liberterian candidate Bryant Callaghan in the November election.

The emergency levy originally passed in 2007 and was set to expire in December. It generates $6.4 million and costs the owner of a $100,000 home about $115 annually.

“We are ecstatic to see that level of support for our schools from the community,” Detzel said. “Thanks to the committee and our employees for their hard work getting the message out. Kerri Robers and Theresa Strong, who helped coordinate volunteer efforts for the levy campaign, said they had a strong positive response during the campaign.

Teams consisting of eight to 15 people take part in the relay, which requires at least one team member to be walking around the park’s paved walking trail at all times.

More than 2,000 people participated in last year’s relay, and organizers hope to make this year’s event even bigger. To find out more about registering a team, donating money for the relay or volunteering at the event, visit www.relayforlife.org/westside oh, or call Amy Wilson at 1888-227-6446 ext. 4201.

Springfield recycling

Springfield Township is making it easier for residents to recycle by placing three new residential recycling bins at Stephanie Hummer Park, located at 661 North Bend Road. Additional bins have also been placed behind the township’s Administration/Fire

Headquarters Complex at 9150 Winton Road and at the Senior and Community Center (at rear of complex) to accommodate the overwhelming response at that location. Recycled quantities count toward additional revenue from a Residential Recycling Incentive Grant through the Hamilton County Solid Waste District, so every recycled pound not only conserves landfill space and provides materials for new products made from recycled products, but also provides income for additional recycled product purchases and recycling opportunities. Details about acceptable items for single stream recycling can be found on the web at www.springfieldtwp.org/RecycleDropOff.cfm.

Garden program

National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6 through May 12. The Northwest Local School District has either a registered nurse, a licensed practical nurse, a registered medical assistant, a certified medical assistant or a health assistant in each of the schools to service the needs of the Northwest students. Pauletta Crowley, administrative assistant for community and administrative services for the district, said nursing is often described as an art and a science. “Nursing is a profession that embraces dedicated people with varied interests, strengths and passions,” she said. “School nurses support the needs of students and reduce

barriers to learning by facilitating positive student responses to normal development; promoting health and safety; intervening with actual and potential health problems; providing case management services; and actively collaborating with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, selfadvocacy, and learning.” Crowley said school school nurses act as counselors, confidentes, and often provide the love, care and attention that many students need at one time or another. “In general, our school nurses and assistants advance the wellbeing, academic success, and lifelong achievement of students,” she said.

REAL ESTATE THIS WEEK By Mark Schupp

SCENTS AND SENSIBILITY One of the most primal of our five senses is the sense of smell. So when you prepare your home to sell, you should pay particular attention to a potential buyer’s sense of smell and make sure your home is free of any offensive odors. We all love our pets, but they do emit certain odors that we tend to get used to over time. But a buyer will come into your home with a fresh nose and will notice those animal smells, no matter how telltale. Even if they have pets of their own, buyers will subconsciously register strange pet smells in a negative light. Smoke from cigarettes or a pipe also leaves an unpleasant smelling residue deeply imbedded in curtains, carpets and furniture. If you own a pet or smoke, make sure you have your carpets, drapes and furniture professionally cleaned and deodorized; and make sure that your house is sparkling clean. From then on, you should only smoke outside the home and if possible, keep your pet confined to an area that is easy to keep clean and odor free. Mark Schupp has been a Real Estate Agent for the past 29 years and is a Certified Residential Specialist. He has won many awards including the Top Unit Producer for 1999 and 2000 (last year awarded) in the Cincinnati Board of Realtors and Top 1% Residential Real Estate Agent in the Nation.

Colerain softball struggling to score runs By Tony Meale

Schwaeble sparkles at NKU

tmeale@communitypress.com

On April 19, the Colerain High School softball team was sitting pretty. Winners of three straight over Princeton, Hamilton and Middletown – all by the shutout variety – the Cardinals were 6-3 (6-3). But over their next 11 games, they went 3-8, scoring two runs or fewer in all eight losses. Five of the losses were shutouts, including three straight against Fairfield, Mason and Lakota West April 22-28. Colerain (9-11, 8-9 entering play May 8) is now below .500 for the first time being 0-1 to start the 2006 season. “Our biggest problem has been inconsistency with hitting,” Colerain head coach Susan Dayton said. “We haven’t hit as well as we did last year.” The 2009 team averaged 5.3 runs per game; the 2010 team is averaging 3.5. One bright spot for Colerain has been senior outfielder Chelsea Bridges, who leads the Greater Miami Conference with a .485 average. She also has six of the team’s 17 steals. “She’s stepped into the leadoff spot and has gotten on base a lot,” Dayton said. “We’ve had opportunities to score. We just haven’t been able to put her across as much as we could have.” Senior third baseman Megan LaFary, who last year finished third in the GMC with a .430 average (minimum 40 at-bats), is hitting .339. She is tied for the team-lead in RBIs (10) with freshman first baseman Katie Hoelmer, who is hitting .269. Seniors Jennifer More-

Emily Schwaeble graduated from Colerain in 2009 as arguably the greatest softball player in school history. She was twice named the Enquirer Division I Player of the Year, had more than 1,000 strikeouts in her career and tossed 41 shutouts. Now a freshman pitcher for NKU, Schwaeble hasn’t slowed. She is 8-1 with a 1.45 ERA, six complete games and one shutout for the Norse, which is 31-16 as of May 5. She has 69 strikeouts in 62.2 innings. As a hitter, she is third on the team with a .311 average and also has four home runs and 35 RBIs.

Colerain junior Sydney Morris has been the Cardinals’ top hurler this year. She has a sub-.300 ERA. head and Chelsea Jones, meanwhile, are both batting around .300 after hitting

.222 and .253, respectively, a season ago. “They’re some of my

slappers,” Dayton said. “They’ve improved a lot since last year.” The rest of Colerain’s regulars, however, are all hitting below .255. With an underwhelming offense – Colerain has scored two runs or fewer in 12 games this year – the Cardinals have relied heavily on junior starting pitcher Sydney Morris, who is 9-8 with five shutouts and a 2.66 ERA. “She’s keeping us in games, and I can’t ask any more from her than that,” Dayton said. Morris, who played junior varsity each of her first two years at Colerain, was given the unenviable task of replacing 2009 graduate

Emily Schwaeble, who now pitches for Northern Kentucky University. “I think Sydney’s learned to play with this group,” Dayton said. “She’s grown a lot with them, and she has confidence in the people behind her. A lot of our runs have been unearned, but she’s kept us in games.” Colerain, seeded No. 9 in the postseason, open against No. 4 Harrison at 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 12. If victorious, the Cardinals advance to the Division I sectional finals, where they would likely face either Mount Notre Dame or McAuley. “Harrison is a very good team, so we’ve got our work cut out for us,” Dayton said. “But we’re here to compete, and we’re going to take it one at a time. It’s win and advance.” Colerain advanced to the state tournament for the first time in school history last year, falling 3-0 to Hudson in the state semi-finals.

Mercy wins league for 2nd straight year

Tower Titans football camp

The Tower Titans Junior High Football Program is looking for prospective football players for the upcoming 2010 season. Two camps for the ABCs of Football will be 3-4:30 p.m., Sunday, May 23, and Sunday, June 6. Players should meet in the in the parking lot behind La Salle High School, 3091 North Bend Road in Monfort Heights, near the entrance to the stadium. Registration for participating on the team for the upcoming season will be conducted prior to the beginning of the camp for all prospective players. The team is made up of seventh- and eighth-grade students who are not in a position to play football because they either: Attend schools that do not offer this sport, are home schooled or are over the weight limit for their schools' respective leagues. Practices and home games are held at LaSalle High School. The team will compete in the Southwest Ohio Catholic Conference (SWOCC). This is the eighth year that the program has been offered for young men. Contact coach John Bosse at 741-2368.

Colerain Township girl leads Bobcats By Tony Meale tmeale@communitypress.com

Colerain High School senior Krista Wharton runs in the 110 meter hurdles, finishing first in a time of 16.8. The girls’ team totaled 82 points and finished fifth of seven teams behind Mother of Mercy (139), Mount Healthy (135), Seton (128) and Oak Hills (83).

Best of the West

Colerain High School junior Craig White runs in the 4x800 meter relay at the Best of the West track meet at Oak Hills May 6. The boys’ team totaled 104 points and finished fourth of six teams behind Elder (201.5), Oak Hills (143) and Mount Healthy (106.5).

TONY MEALE/STAFF

For the second straight season, the Mother of Mercy High School softball team has won a league championship. The Bobcats finish the regular season 17-4 overall and 8-2 in the Girls’ Greater Cincinnati League. Mount Notre Dame and McAuley, both of which went 7-3 in league play, finish tied for second. “It feels good,” Mercy head coach Karen Kron said. “It feels like all our hard work is paying off.” Mercy got off to a torrid start this season, winning its first five games by a combined score of 49-8. After a pair of rainouts, however, the Bobcats followed with three losses in two days, including 9-0 and 6-0 losses to Fairfield and Lebanon, respectively, April 10. The Bobcats took the wake-up call to heart; they’ve won 12 of their last 13 games. Their only setback during that stretch was a 2-0 road loss to St. Ursula. Leading Mercy is junior

catcher and reigning GGCLScarlet Player of the Year Erika Leonard of Colerain Township, who hit nine home runs and had 28 RBIs as one of the premier power hitters in the city last season. This year, she moved to the top of the order and is hitting .517 with two homers, 18 RBI and 30 runs scored. She leads the GGCL with a .627 on-base percentage (minimum 40 atbats). “She’s doing very well for us,” Kron said. “She’s leading off, which took some adjusting, but she’s handled it very well.” Stepping into the power role, meanwhile, is sophomore Amy Feie, who is hitting .420 with a team-high 27 RBI. The Bobcats have also gotten key offensive contributions from senior first baseman Katie Bachus, who it hitting .403 with a teamhigh six stolen bases, and sophomore pitcher and shortstop Anna Eggleston, who is hitting .366 with 15 RBIs. But aside from the aforementioned foursome – each member of whom is hitting at least .366 – no other Bobcat is batting higher than .235. Kron is not con-

cerned. Other contributors include seniors Gina Carmosino, Elizabeth Mahon, Erin O’Brien, Maddie Whelan and Hannah Rechel; junior Mandolin Schreck; sophomores Morgan Fuller, Halle Specht, Nikki Metzner and Abby Rechel; and freshman Nicole Stephan. Even so, for all of its offensive prowess – the Bobcats have scored 10 runs or more eight times this season – Mercy’s strength may be its pitching. Eggleston and Feie have been devastating for opposing hitters, allowing one run or fewer in 12 games. Eggleston is 10-3 with a 0.92 ERA and has 119 strikeouts in 91.2 innings, while Feie is 6-1 with a 1.69 ERA and has 52 strikeouts in 37.1 innings. Kron has been impressed with Eggleston’s willingness to do what is asked of her. Mercy, which moved to Division II this spring, earned a No. 1 seed in the playoffs. The Bobcats open in the sectional semi-finals against the winner of No. 9 BethelTate and No. 11 McNicholas at 5 p.m. May 13. If victorious, they advance to the sectional finals May 18.

Northwest district says thank you to voters On behalf of Northwest Local School District's students and staff, we thank you for the support and confidence given by passing our renewal levy last week. Passage of this levy allows us to continue to offer a wide array of successful curricular, co-curricular and extra curricular programs to all students. During the life of this five-year renewal levy we will continue to explore ways to control our costs, and evaluate and improve all phases of our operations. The district is currently involved with several planning consortiums that will lead to improvements in the instructional programs and the quality of life for our students. For example: • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) programs are a method of focusing student

learning on improving skills in these four critical content areas. We are currently involved in a grant application process with several other districts coordinated by the University of Cincinnati. • 21st Century Learning is another planning consortium focusing on improving student learning in skill areas that will be

most important for the next two generations of workers. • Culturally Responsive Practices are strategies to improve the acceptance and understanding of diversity among students and staff in our schools. Our district is one piece of a planning cohort facilitated by Miami and Xavier universities to develop a plan for implementing these strategies over the next three years. Two initiatives that were started after the levy passed in 2007 will continue. The Narrow Grade Range (NGR) project will be reviewed this summer. The NGR pilot partnered two elementary schools, Pleasant Run as a 3-5 intermediate school and Welch as a K-2 primary school. If the results of the review are positive, expansion to other sites will be considered. The district facility study will

Wind power

The hope of gaining much energy from wind is a great illusion. Wind is too erratic. It blows less on the very hot or very cold days because it blows strongest during the storms. Thus some form of storage or backup is needed. Storage could be behind a dam or in batteries. Batteries have a problem of failure and disposal and the environmentalists don't like that. Nor do they like storage of water behind dams. They also object to bird death due to the turning of windmill blades. Further, windmills are not pretty. Another way to use wind is with supplemental energy such as coal, natural gas, or oil fired generators. Thus wind energy would best be achieved with oil as a supplement, but that is a poor way to replace oil with wind. At one time I wanted to buy a windmill for home use. I found that it would be cheaper to get a gas generator instead. Stanton W. Doran Sunnywoods Lane Green Township

Thank you

Thank you to Dan Goebel and his campaign team for all their hard work and effort. Thank you to the NWLSD Leadership Team, the administrators, the teachers and everyone else who makes this an excellent district. And, finally, thank you voters of the Northwest Local School District for trusting us with your vote. We will continue to work hard to give you the most for your money. We encourage your thoughts, questions, and ideas to make our schools the best they can be. Your support was overwhelming. Thank you again.

Wonderful experience

For the past two and a half months I have had the privilege of working with some the most dynamic, energetic and dedicated people I have ever met … and in my business career I have worked with a lot of outstanding individuals. The group I'm referring to is the levy committee team. In a very short time they threw themselves into designing a website and yard signs, organizing phone volunteers, fundraising, a sign distribution rally at Northgate Mall and on and on … They are too numerous to name, i.e. parents, grandparents, teachers, administrators, business people, and what enthusiaism they brought with them. We are truly most fortunate to have such people among us. You know, when you think about it I believe you'll agree, the

also be revisited. We must evaluate the effects that recent shifts in district enrollment trends have had on the district. We will look at ways to increase energy efficiency in our facility planning, and look at increasing and updating technology. There will undoubtedly be several opportunities for community input over the next two years on these planning projects. Please visit the district Web site at www.nwlsd.org on a regular basis for all the current district news and announcements. The next three years should be very exciting in the Northwest School District. However, for this week we are excited and proud over the support you demonstrated by passing our levy. We believe this is a victory for our entire community and we thank you.

Thompson responds

To all the anti-abortionists who write letters to this paper, I would say they should get their head on straight before they make accusations. First of all, nobody “likes” abortion. That’s one thing upon which we can all agree. They can scream, holler, advertise, debate, tote bloody signs, legislate, prod, judge, harass and hopefully educate, but there always was and always will be abortions. The only difference is “will it be safe, legal and rare, or illegal? “ Contraception has to come first. As for the health insurance bill, if Ms. Czyzyk read the bill she would know that it will provide no federal funds for abortion. If she wants truth, she should read the bill. It says nothing about abortion on demand. It is still Christian to help others. If some want to characterize that as Socialism, so be it. Our present health care system is unsustainable. A country of our stature should be able to offer a health care plan to all. If we can spend 33 cents of every tax dollar for war, we surely can offer health care for our own people. We have finally taken the first step toward that goal. Just like the Catholic church, never will everyone agree on everything. Sorry if the “real” Catholics were taken aback, but it’s a fact that all Catholics do not agree on everything, mainly manmade laws. The people are the church, not the hierarchy alone. Amen. Ann Thompson Robers Avenue Green Township

Recently a guest column was published in the Community Press papers touting the recently passed health care legislation as Christian, and praising Congressman (Steve) Driehaus’ vote in favor of it. This was a valiant effort at trying to convince Driehaus’s constituents that he had not turned his back on us, but it’s way off base. The Congressional Budget Office reported that for the average American family, this supposed Christian legislation will increase insurance premiums by $2,100 annually. Furthermore it will levy new taxes upon them. This legislation is slated to increase taxes by $500 billion. When families are struggling to make ends meet, when we are living through the worst economic climate since the Great Depression, it’s not very Christian to pile higher premiums and greater taxes upon our families. This legislation also cuts Medicare by $500 billion. This is devastating to our seniors, especially those living on a fixed income and rely on Medicare for their medical care and prescription drugs. Were this legislation truly based upon Christian principals, we’d not be leaving our seniors out in the proverbial cold, we’d be doing all we can to take care of them. But perhaps the most egregious part of this legislation is what is not included. Christians believe in the sanctity of life, but the health care reform package does nothing to protect the unborn. Steve Driehaus has built his image on the promise that he is a pro-life Democrat, but when the time came, he fell in line with his party’s leadership to vote in favor of this law. The reform legislation contains no language that will keep our tax dollars from paying for abortions.

CH@TROOM May 5 question

Is wind power a viable solution to our dependence on oil? Why or why not? “The use of wind power is a no brainer. The oil will run out or become price prohibitive. Nuclear power plants are now being built after a 30-year moratorium. How sad that the Duke (then CG&E Intended Nuclear) power plant at Moscow, Ohio was changed over to coal when it was built. Increased hydroelectric

plants and desalination plants are also needed while more alternate fuel efficient cars are developed. America has the knowledge and hopefully will start developing more of these alternatives. As usual, Honda and Toyota have taken the lead so far on cars. Go figure!” T.D.T. “That is a very difficult for the average person to answer, because it would require a lot of very specialized knowledge and statistics. However, having made that disclaimer, I would

say that I have noticed a number of wind farms in operation, and one huge windmill is even visible from I275 heading northeast near the Milford exit. Someone thinks they are practical, or they wouldn't be using them. I suspect that if we built and employed a large number of them, it would make a difference in our oil consumption. But I also suspect that there are people who would be upset with the appearance of these devices, and would object. As for me, I say ‘Why not?’” Bill B.

“Absolutely! We should immediately set up a battery of windmills just outside of each of our statehouses and Congress. The volume of hot air generated should make us energy independent in no time.” T.H. “I think wind power is something to be considered as a way to reduce slightly our dependence on oil. However, in most locations wind is not suitable as the ONLY source of power – it simply fills in the gaps left by other power sources. In countries that use

That in itself disqualifies it from being deemed Christian legislation. Even the Catholic Bishops who led the church’s efforts Richard Fry on the health Community care bill agree. stated Press guest in They a letter to columnist Congress, that unless stronger language was included to prohibit tax dollars from funding abortions, “we will have no choice but to oppose the bill.” They said “no one should be forced to pay for or participate in abortion.” National Right to Life was vehemently opposed to the legislation, and after it was passed released a statement saying, “the current occupant of the First District seat, Steve Driehaus, voted to enact President Obama’s massive health care legislation (H.R. 3590), although it lacked the pro-life protections that the National Right to Life Committee, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and other major pro-life groups had fought for long and hard – protections that were necessary to prevent future federal funding of elective abortion and federal subsidies for private insurance plans that cover elective abortion (some of which will be administered directly by the federal government).” Any statement dubbing the health care reform package as Christian legislation is vastly misguided. This reform is bad for families, bad for seniors, and above all, bad for the unborn. I would venture to say that this health care reform is, in fact, about as anti-Christian as you can get. Dr. Richard Fry is a resident of Ebenezer Road and has offices on Dixmyth Avenue.

Alliance recognizes volunteers By Heidi Fallon

hfallon@communitypress.com

Mount Healthy Alliance Inc. honored its own with a volunteer dinner where lasagna and appreciation were on the menu. Dinner at St. Paul United Church of Christ in North College Hill was cooked and served by volunteers from that congregation’s mission team. The Rev. David Bailey, St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Springfield Township, said the annual dinner is a way to say thank you to the 200-plus folks who volunteer their time at the Alliance food pantry and in other ways. “It’s a way we can recognize their efforts and all they do for the Alliance,” Bailey, who succeeded David Miller, a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, as Alliance president. Ministers and congregation members of 12 churches in Mount Healthy, Springfield and Colerain townships, and North College Hill, make up the Alliance which formed three years ago. The main task of the group is stocking a food pantry housed at Mount Healthy Christian Church. Bailey said the pantry is moving to another area of the church, but still will offer the same types of services. Kathy Lorenz, food pantry director, said a new

pastor on call program has been added to the pantry services. Pat and Mike Murphy, members of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, said they don’t mind the trek from their Green Township home to help with pantry. “It’s a way we can help out and it’s something that makes us feel good,” Mrs. Murphy said, adding they have been volunteering about a year. “We should have done it sooner.” Mount Healthy resident and Assumption parish volunteer Thelma Kaup said she’s been helping at the pantry since it started. “I feel it’s my obligation as a Christian and I just like doing it,” Kaup said. Lorenz said volunteers range in age “from 90-plus to 7 years old.” “Most of our volunteers are from the member congregations, but we also have folks from the community and some of our clients also volunteer as a way to give back.”

Some interesting observations about marriage, divorce cut and run when the going gets tough.

reproduce our miseries with extraordinary consistency. In love relations, we approach each new relationship as an antidote to the problems of the last one, and, with daunting regularity, each new relationship turns out to be a new version of the old.” So claims psychoanalyst Stephen Mitchell in “Can Love Last?” 6. In Belinda Luscombe’s “Time” magazine column (May 3, 2010) she discusses serial marriers. She facetiously wonders why people who are so bad at mating for life, e.g. Larry King, Elizabeth Taylor, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Mickey Rooney, etc., keep pairing up. “It’s not that they want to get divorced, or hate marriage. It’s that they like it too much, even though it’s not good for them. So, perhaps applications for, say, a fifth marriage license should be required to get therapy.” 7. “By having two lovers one

can drastically reduce one’s commitment to a relationship that one would not be able to bear in its totality. When one feels the need to deceive the beloved, this implies a lack of integration of the shadow.” Aldo Carotenuto “Eros And Pathos.” 8. Are wedding vows taken seriously, or should they be reworded: Though celebrities claim to fall in and out of love within months or a few years, and others follow their example, it’s legitimate to ask if such people actually loved each other in the first place. Viktor Frankl, M.D., writes, “The moment we experience true love, we experience it as valid forever, like a truth which we recognize as an ‘eternal truth.’ It is impossible to envision loving ‘for awhile.’” (A good argument for commitment.) 9. British philosopher Susan Mendess exposed the absurdity of

an intended short-term period of love in marriage by saying, “It is bizarre to respond to ‘Wilt thou love her, comfort her, and keep her?” with: “Well, I’ll try!” 10. “I think one of the problems in marriage is that people don’t realize what it is. They think it’s a long romantic love affair and it isn’t. Marriage has nothing to do with being happy. It has to do with being transformed, and when the transformation is realized it is a magnificent experience. But you have to submit. You have to yield. You have to give. You can’t just dictate.” Author and world mythologist Joseph Campbell in “This Business of the Gods,” page 78. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Whether buying or selling – beware of fakes How genuine is the jewelry sold on eBay and other online auction sites? A few years ago, Tiffany & Co. found nearly three quarters of items sold on eBay as “Tiffany Jewelry” were counterfeit. Tiffany sued eBay but lost because the court said eBay is not the seller. Now Tiffany goes after the sellers themselves. That’s what Anita Holmes has learned. She said she bought earrings from a friend whose husband had bought them for

came in, the box that said “Tiffany” and the bag that also said “Tiffany.” She posted the picture on eBay, offered it for sale, and immediately received an email saying they don’t look like real Tiffany items. Holmes said she immediately closed the auction – but it was too late. She received e-mails from both eBay and the lawyers for Tiffany & Co. Then she got a letter from Tiffany’s attorneys showing they meant business. “They wanted me to

her. “I liked the earrings but they were selling on eBay for around $120 and Howard Ain I could Hey Howard! have used the money more than I could the earrings,” she said. “So, I decided maybe the earrings could go to somebody else.” Holmes took a picture of the earrings, the pouch they

send them the earrings. They wanted the name of the person that had sold them to me, and they wanted $475 for damages,” she said. After calling the lawyer’s office, Holmes said, “They say it’s phony. I asked her how she knew. I’m not trying to be smart about it, I just wondered because I didn’t know. She said they know their merchandise.” Tiffany & Co. said such counterfeiting dilutes the value of its products so it’s trying to stop it as soon as it

spots these fakes. Holmes says she’s learned a big lesson. “I won’t sell on eBay anymore; it’s just not worth the worrying about this happening again. It scared me,” she said. Just to be sure, I asked Holmes to take the earrings to the Tiffany store in downtown Cincinnati. She did, and said she learned the handles on her “Tiffany” bag are different from the real thing. There’s a different size box inside, and the pouch is also differ-

ent, among other things. Holmes said she was told they were all good fakes. Holmes said she’s now sent the items to Tiffany & Co.’s lawyer along with a check for $475 for the trademark violation. Bottom line, beware of counterfeits – whether buying or selling on the Internet. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

Healthy way to prepare fish, ‘chips’

I got a bonus of sorts when I stopped at Keegan’s Seafood on Salem Avenue in Mount Washington for my fresh seafood “fix.” Outside the store was the cutest little couple selling produce, herbs and veggie plants. Mr. and Mrs. Klug come f r o m Fayettville and grow the prod u c e t h e m Rita selves. I Heikenfeld bought Rita’s kitchen some heirloom yellow tomato plants, a rhubarb plant, and some beautiful purple basil. They are there a couple times a week, so if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by to see Tom Keegan and these truck farmers. All throughout our Community Press and Recorder areas there are these kinds of folks who are independents trying to make a living doing something they love. You’ll find them outside places like Tom’s, at roadside stands, Findlay Market, or in the parking lots at

shopping malls. Anytime you can support our independent grocers and farmers, I hope you do so.

Parmesan mixed together 2 teaspoons garlic powder or to taste Olive oil, salt and pepper

Seafood tips from Tom Keegan

“Oil the fish, not the pan,” he says. Tom brushes oil on the fish for a healthier, tastier dish. He also says simple is better. “When you have a quality piece of seafood, you don’t need to do much other than sauté it simply in some olive oil and/or butter with your favorite seasonings.”

Pan-seared salmon with herbs

COURTESY RITA HEIKENFELD

Simple pan-seared salmon with dill and lemon herbs. of salmon which has been seasoned with salt and pepper. Cook until done, turning once. Sprinkle with fresh dill and a squeeze of lemon juice.

Oven-fried french fries

Usually I oil the fish, not the pan, but in this case, I put the olive oil directly in the pan since I have aromatics with it. Here’s how I do it: Film a pan with olive oil and cook a large, peeled, smashed clove of garlic in it until it turns golden. If you have a few sprigs of lemon grass, toss them in too and saute along with the salmon. Remove garlic and lemon grass and add a piece

For Mandy Roberts, who wanted healthier french fries with lots of flavor. You need to precook the potatoes first so they’ll bake up crisp without a long time in the oven. If you want, add less garlic powder and substitute Cajun seasoning. 4 big baking potatoes, cut into big wedges, skin left on if desired 1 ⁄4 cup each: bread crumbs and shredded

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bring water to a boil, put potatoes in, then lower to a simmer. Cook until barely tender, about five to seven minutes. Spray a baking sheet and put potatoes on in single layer. Season and toss with a bit of olive oil. Sprinkle bread crumb mixture over them, tossing to coat. Press the coating lightly so it sticks. Bake, and toss about halfway through, until crispy, about 10 to 12 minutes or so.

Stuffed bell pepper soup

I’ve had several requests for this and finally tweaked the recipe so that it’s good enough to share. Like eating a stuffed pepper, inside out! 1 pound ground beef (I use sirloin but any will do) 1 cup chopped onion 2 bell peppers, medium size, diced 1 nice rib celery, chopped 1 nice carrot, chopped

2-3 teaspoons garlic, minced or more to taste 1-2 teaspoons dried oregano or more to taste Chili powder to taste – start with a couple teaspoons Soy sauce to taste – start with a couple tablespoons Beef broth – start with 5 cups and add more to taste 14.5 ounces diced tomatoes 1 jar, 26-ounce or so, favorite pasta sauce 1 ⁄2 cup brown or white rice – I like brown Shredded cheddar for garnish Film pan with olive oil and brown beef along with onion, peppers, celery, carrot, garlic and oregano. When beef is cooked, add everything but rice and cheddar. Bring to a gentle boil and cook about 10 minutes. Lower to a simmer, add rice, put lid on and cook until rice is done, about 15 to 20 minutes or so. Adjust seasonings and add salt and pepper to taste.

Can you help?

Readers want to know

“Is it OK to plant basil now?” Yes, the soil has warmed up enough and we shouldn’t be getting any more frosty nights. It’s a good time to divide perennial herbs like thyme and oregano that have gotten woody or out of bounds.

Memorial to expand

Bowlers to help Big Brothers

Greater Cincinnati Firefighters Memorial Inc. recently announced the expansion and renovation of the current Cincinnati Firefighters Memorial located at the intersection of 6th Street and Central Avenue downtown. Upon completion of the project, the memorial will be known as Greater Cincinnati Firefighter Memorial Park. It will be a regional memorial park dedicated to honoring the memories of all who serve in the fire and emergency response services, locally, nationally, and internationally. The men and women of the past, present, and future

will be honored by memorializing their efforts given to the time honored profession of being public-safety professionals. The capital campaign to complete this project requires meeting the goal of $400,000. Greater Cincinnati Firefighters Memorial Inc. is asking for the public to support its fundraising efforts by visiting www.cincinnatifirefightersmemorialpark.co m where they can purchase pavers that will be laid as part of the memorial design. A tax deductible donation of $50 or $100 can buy a brick that will be inscribed with text chosen to

acknowledge and commemorate their support. Fire departments can share in the memorial with a dedicated “Captain’s Paver” that will be a special way of observing the members of their department

If you’re looking for a way to help children and have a good time in the process, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati may have just the thing for you. The agency is now recruiting teams from all over the Tristate to take part. Each team is made up of four bowlers. People can register as a team captain and team up with three friends or coworkers to get their foursome together, or register as an individual and the agency will help form the team. Bowlers are asked to raise $125 each, or $500 per team, with all funds going to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati. Money raised helps the agency continue its mission of matching caring adult mentors with children in our neighborhoods who need them.

TRAIN RIDES!

Mount librarian writes bio of folk legend Paul Jenkins, MLS, the director of library services for the College of Mount St. Joseph, has written a new book about 1940s and 1950s folk music legend Richard Dyer-Bennet. Titled “Richard DyerBennet: The Last Minstrel,” it is the first biography to be published about this highly influential figure in American music history. “He laid the foundation for the ‘60s with his output,” Jenkins said of DyerBennet. “His singing style was certainly influential with artists like Joan Baez.” Despite his influence, Dyer-Bennet found it hard to maintain an audience. Having performed benefits for Russian war relief during World War II, he was blacklisted by the House UnAmerican Activities Com-

mittee, who had similarly blacklisted many Hollywood actors, directors, and writers for their supposedly pro-Soviet leanings. While the blacklisting severely damaged his popularity, Dyer-Bennet continued to perform and record until his health failed in the late 1980s. More recently, a large number of his records have been reissued by Smithsonian Folkways, a record company that is operated by the Smithsonian Institute. “I’m trying to start a mini-revival of his music,” Jenkins said. “It’s still very much alive.” Jenkins team-teaches a course on the “History of American Protest Music” at the Mount. A devout music fan, he is a member of the local musical group The

PROVIDED.

Paul Jenkins, MLS, is the director of library services for the College of Mount St. Joseph Blarnacles, and a prolific writer. He resides in Westwood with his wife, Mary, and son, Tom. “Richard Dyer-Bennet: The Last Minstrel” is available as part of the University Press of Mississippi’s American Made Music Series. It features rare photographs of Dyer-Bennet and an in-depth analysis of all of Dyer-Bennet’s recordings.
