About 40 people turned out for a May 27 hearing with officials from Hamilton County and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency on new air emission levels at the Rumpke Sanitary Landfill in Colerain Township. Rumpke wants to install a thermal oxidizer, used at landfill gas recovery plants to control air pollution by cleaning gases at high temperatures before releasing the gases into the atmosphere. Jay Roberts, director of engineering and environmental affairs for Rumpke, said exhaust from two gas plants currently vents directly to the atmosphere. A third plant has an oxidizer. The new oxidizer will treat all three and will release a higher volume of exhaust through the unit into the atmosphere. Peter Sturdevant, environmental compliance specialist for the Hamilton County Department of Environmental Services, said a thermal oxidizer is designed to

It may, in the process, emit additional carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides, leading to the request to raise limits for those compounds. Sturdevant said there should be an odor reduction when the oxi-

dizer is operational. He could not quantify how much of an improvement it would be. Nancy Lindemood, who lives west of the landfill, asked if the ceiling on what’s permissible must be raised. She asked what the current emission levels are compared to current limits, but OEPA and county officials said

they didn’t have that information available at the hearing. “I think we need to know actual versus allowable,” Lindemood said. “I am not convinced allowing a higher level of emissions is necessary.” Roberts said the company needs to raise the permissible levels because the oxidizer handles more gas. “This doesn’t mean we are recovering more gas, but we will be processing more gas to control emissions,” he said. “Plant one (where the new oxidizer is scheduled for installation) is the oldest of the gas plants and it has two stacks. We are doing this specifically to address the odor issue. “Our top priority is the health and safety of our employees and the community,” added Roberts. “The new thermal oxidizer will meet or be better than healthbased standards. The air quality has been and will continue to be monitored around the site to ensure that the health of our neighbors is not adversely impacted.”

The first settlement of the township was in 1790, when John Dunlap and a small group of settlers built a fort on the Great Miami River. The township was a rural farming area until the 1950s, when subdivisions began creeping out to the suburbs. Businesses and shopping centers followed the new homes. From 1950 to 1960, the population quadrupled, and the township changed from its early rural roots. This “Images of America” volume shows the changes, and walks the reader back to a time when Colerain Avenue was a twolane road with parallel parking and Northgate Mall was an airport. Colerain Township resident Frank Scholle teamed up with fellow resident Don Linz to compile the book. The men, both members of the La Salle Council 5621 Knights of Columbus, worked together at the start of the annual Taste of Colerain food fest on the grounds of the old Council meeting house, which is now the Groesbeck branch of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County. Scholle is the history buff, and Linz is an amateur photographer, a good team to set up a photo history of the community. Linz said he is pleased with how the book turned

Book signings set

There are three book signings currently set for “Images of America: Colerain Township.” The first will be from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 5, at Borders Books, 9459 Colerain Avenue. The next will be from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday, June 6, at Walgreens, 3084 W. Galbraith Road, at the intersection of Galbraith Road and Colerain Avenue. The third signing is set for noon to 3 p.m. Sunday, June 13, at Walgreens, 9775 Colerain Ave., at the intersection of Springdale Road and Colerain Avenue. The book is available at Call 888-313-2665 for information.


Colerain Township resident and history buff Frank Scholle with “Images of America: Colerain Township” a book on Colerain Township's history he helped compile with Don Linz and the staff at Arcadia Publishing. The book is in area stores, and three book signings are already set. out and says it shows how the township has changed over the years. He’s lived in the township since 1942, and has seen those changes for himself. Scholle, who is a 51-year resident of the township, said he borrowed photos from the Coleraine Historical Society and anyone who had them to get the book completed. “This took about a year,” he said. “Mel Blust was a big help with the Colerain Avenue photos.” The K of C and the his-

torical society will split the proceeds from the book. Scholle initiated the popular Colerain historic calendars back in 1998, collecting old photos to illustrate the pages. He says he loves history, and the book is just a natural outgrowth. He says he started with 240 photos, of which Arcadia Publishing rejected 62 and that’s when Scholle began soliciting residents and members for their old pictures. “I think we got some good ones,” he said.


“Images of America: Colerain Township” is a photo essay tracing the history of Colerain Township through pictures of businesses, schools, churches and homes in the community.

There are not many situations where you can spend the money from your IRA or Roth IRA accounts before you are 59 ½ without suffering the dreaded 10% penalty. But, since the Taxpayers Relief Act was passed back in 1997, first time homebuyers are allowed to use up to $10,000 of their IRA money toward a home purchase, penalty-free. This is good news not only for first time buyers, but also for close relatives. If you want to help your spouse, children, grandchildren or parents buy a home, you can also use your IRA savings for them, providing they are first-time buyers. “First time buyer” has a broader definition than you might think. According to the government, a first time buyer is someone who hasn’t owned a home in the last two years. So, technically, you could be a first time buyer several times over the span of your lifetime, but you can only use your IRA money once in your life without paying the penalty. If you are thinking of buying or helping a relative with a home purchase, be sure to consult a professional tax consultant to see if you qualify for a penalty-free withdrawal.

Mt. Healthy valedictorian ready to walk By Jennie Key


The 2010 Mount Healthy High School valedictorian is Brandon Okel.

More information Mount Healthy High School graduates at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 8, at the Vineyard Church, 11340 Century Circle. The top 10 students are: Kelsey Berning, Todd

Christensen, Aaron Ector, Joseph McKinney, valedictorian Brandon Okel, Kyanna Perry, Domonique Roseman, Brooke Shirley, salutatorian Chris Van Camp and Dairick Wade.

Talk to valedictorians or top high school graduates, and a pattern begins to emerge: “start early, work hard, motivate yourself.” Those have been watchwords for Mount Healthy High School 2010 valedictorian Brandon Okel. And they have paid off. “I have been working toward this goal since freshman year,” he said. “It was my top goal.” Okel, the son of Bev Okel and Steve Okel, had top academic performance as his top goal, but he found time to enjoy the work along the way. He was on the varsity golf team, and has played basketball, baseball, and was a member of the National Honor Society, Beta Club, Key Club, the German Honor Society and was a drummer for the marching band, concert band and pep band. Okel is headed for the University of Cincinnati to study architectural engineering, where he has a good head start. Thanks to postsecondary options, he is leaving high school with 33 college credit hours. Okel said the challenge


Mount Healthy High School celebrated its top 10 seniors in the Class of 2010 with a reception with their parents. Todd Christensen, Kyanna Perry, Joseph McKinney, Domonique Roseman, valedictorian Brandon Okel, Kelsey Berning, Brooke Shirley, Aaron Ector and Dairick Wade received medals for their academic achievements. Not pictured is salutatorian Chris Van Camp. at the college level is to motivate yourself. He’s looking forward to the independence college brings. “It will be nice to be doing work because you want to do it, not for grades to get into college,” he said. “Now, it will be learning for learning’s sake.” Okel identified two strong influences besides his parents as he reflects on his high school years. He says his youth pastor, Alton Alexander at the Vineyard, was a strong influence during his high school years.

He also credits Mount Healthy’s new football coach Arvie Crouch, who letting him work as a student assistant in his senior year. In fact, while Okel graduates from Mount Healthy High School this spring, he will still return to the district this fall. He will be coaching middle school football for the district. “I love coaching,” he said. “It’s a chance to teach kids to succeed. If all my seventh-graders remain eligible for the entire season, I will consider that a winning

season. Football is a great tool to help kids get ready for life.” Okel confesses he’d love to coach football as a career, but he’s pursuing the engineering degree as a fallback position. “It’s good to have a backup plan,” he said. His speech is ready. He’s ready. When asked what’s the most memorable high school moment, he says this is it. “Graduation. That’s what I think I will remember the most. I am excited to move on to what’s next.”

Driving seminar offered at Colerain senior center The Colerain Township Senior and Community Center will offer the AARP Driver Safety Program from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 9. There will be a break from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The course is offered in the Bevis Room

Lancers send 7 to D-I state finals La Salle track sets district team record By Anthony Amorini

La Salle High School senior Ray Claytor and a pack of six Lancer juniors scored state qualifications following a record-breaking championship season for the Lancers’ program this spring. The postseason culminated with the Division I Regional Championship finals Friday, May 28, with the Lancers having the most representatives from any school at the meet. La Salle secured its regional might with a dominant first-place performance at districts as the Lancers set a district record with 170 points. Elder took second place in the district while finishing at 88 points. “I was very impressed with the way they competed


La Salle High School junior Ethan Bokeno gets in front of the team from Lakota East during his leg of the 4x800-meter relay during the Division I Regional Championships at Dayton Welcome Stadium Wednesday, May 26. La Salle qualified to state in the event with its second-place finish during regionals with a time of 7:54.44. both nights,” La Salle head coach Frank Russo said of the impressive 170-point

record. “In my 27 years and 54 seasons of coaching, this team is right at the top as

far as the most enjoyable groups I’ve ever had. “The senior leadership is outstanding and the attitude, effort and competitive spirit is second to none. They just refuse to lose,” Russo added. Lancer junior Andrew Silber, one of the seven state qualifiers for La Salle, was one athlete in particular who refused to lose this spring. Silber went undefeated in the pole vault in 2010 including league, district and regional championships in the event. Silber took first place at regionals in the pole vault at 14-foot-3 with his firstplace vault at districts at 1500. La Salle also won district titles in the discus (junior Jesse Back, 151-01), high jump (senior Ray Claytor, 600), 4x400-meter relay (3:24.84) and the 800 (junior Ethan Bokeno, 1:56.54) to help lift the Lancers to its 170-point total. “Field events were a huge strength for us this

year,” Russo said. “These guys have made this season a very memorable one for me and I’m looking forward to state.” At regionals, La Salle’s state qualifiers included Claytor, Silber, Bokeno and juniors Travis Hawes, Rodriguez Coleman, Alex Thiery and Kevin Kluesener. Bokeno, Hawes, Thiery and Kluesener teamed up to take second place in the 4x800-meter relay at regionals with a time of 7:54.44. Hawes finished second at regionals in the 1,600 at 4:33.12 with Bokeno taking fourth place in the 800 at 1:56.97. Coleman finished third in the 110 hurdles at 14.35 during regionals to advance to state. Claytor followed up his district title in the high jump with a third-place finish in the event during regionals at 6-04. “It’s one of those seasons where you don’t want it to end,” Russo said.

Sammie Fields leads Colerain at regionals By Tony Meale

Several members of the Colerain High School track teams performed at the Division I Regional Meet, which was May 26 and 28 at Welcome Stadium in Dayton. Neither squad had a state-qualifier, but Lady Card Sammie Fields, a junior, finished 7th in the high jump (5-02.00) to earn a spot on the podium. “All year she could clear 4-10.00 (easily), but she couldn’t get to five feet consistently,” co-head coach Mark Bierkan said. “She didn’t clear 5 feet until districts.” Fields won a district championship after recording a personal-best (503.00). Teammate Vicki Kinne, also a junior, finished 10th in the high jump (5-00.00) at regionals. On the track for the Lady Cards, senior Krista Wharton finished 16th in preliminaries of the 100 hurdles (17.55). She was runner-up at districts. “She came out of the block good through one hurdle but then (lost her footing a bit),” Bierkan said. “It’s such a technical event, and there’s no time to recover. Krista was a little down about (her performance), but she was a fouryear letter winner. She came in as a freshman and learned the hurdles and


Colerain High School junior Sammie Fields clears the bar at 5-foot during the Division I Regional Championships at Dayton Welcome Stadium on Wednesday, May 26. Fields took seventh place in the high jump at regionals with her best leap at 5-foot-2.

filled a void there for us for four years.” A potential four-year letter winner is Kristen Seiler, whose freshman campaign has amazed Bierkan. Seiler was a district runner-up in the 1,600 and finished fifth in the 800 to miss regionals by just five-hundredths of a second; she recorded a 2:23.90, while West Chester sophomore Yasmin Moftakhar registered a 2:23.85. Seiler finished sixth at regionals in the 1600 (5:21.48). “It’s actually pretty amazing,” Bierkan said.

“Most good (mile runners) run cross country, but she’s a volleyball player. She said it would take her six-and-ahalf or seven minutes to run a mile (at the beginning of the season), but she ran it the first time in 5:26. It’s been amazing to watch. She’s had some training, but she’s doing it all on pure talent.” Seiler – along with senior Kristen Wells and juniors Sam Work and Allison Steinbeck – also helped the 4x800 relay team to regionals, which finished 15th (9:58.81).


For the boys’ team, senior Jeffrey Denny qualified in the 1,600 and 3,200. He finished ninth (4:33.07) and 15th (10:28.73) in those events, respectively. “Over the last year, he’s dropped more than 20 seconds in the mile and more than 40 seconds in the 3,200,” Bierkan said. Also qualifying in the 3,200 was junior Craig Sulken; he finished 14th (10:27.31). “They’re our two biggest point-scorers this season,” Bierkan said. “Everyone looks up to those two. I’ll be

sad to see Jeffrey leave.” The Cardinals also qualified two relays to regionals – the 4x200 (comprised of sophomores Andre Howell and Chris Mimes, junior Tyler Williams and freshman Finest Johnson) and the 4x400 (comprised of Howell, Mimes and seniors Allen Belton and Lonnell Williams). Both relays, which finished fourth at districts, placed 11th in the regional preliminaries in times of 1:31.19 and 3:28.33. Bierkan, who co-coaches with Jeff Woltz, said both teams had a solid overall year. The boys’ team finished third at the Greater Miami Conference Championship and placed eighth at districts, where it totaled 38 points. La Salle (170), Elder, Winton Woods (72), Oak Hills (62) and Mount Healthy (52) finished first through fifth, respectively. The girls’ team finished ninth at the league meet but rebounded for a sixth-place finish at districts. The Lady Cards (45) tied with Fairfield and Hamilton and finished behind McAuley (98), St. Ursula (57), Seton (50), Hamilton (49) and Lakota East (47). Both Colerain squads return the bulk of their teams next season. “With how young we are, we’re very excited,” Bierkan said. “The future looks bright on both sides.”

Track state qualifiers prepare for finals The Regional Championships for Ohio track and field for Divisions I-III concluded Friday and Saturday, May 28-29, with the top four athletes in each event qualifying to state. State qualifiers travel to Ohio State University’s Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus for the state championships Friday and Saturday, June 4-5. The Division II and some

Hanson, Ochs lead St. X at regionals By Tony Meale

The St. Xavier High School track team sent numerous qualifiers to the Division I Regional Meet May 26 and 28 Dayton but was unable to advance anyone to state. “It didn’t go well,” St. X head coach Oliver Mason said. “We didn’t do as well as we would’ve liked to.”

Seniors Chris Hanson and Cory Ochs finished fifth in the 1,600 and the 300 hurdles, respectively. Hanson (4:26.08) finished less than a second shy of state, as Mason senior Matt Kahl (4:25.34) placed fourth. Ochs (38.61), who qualified for state last year, finished 16-hundreths of a second behind Springfield senior Alex Gaskins (38.45). Senior Eric Gruenbacher

(9:52.66) and junior Ryan Schneiber (52-10.00) finished sixth in the 3,200 and shot put, respectively, while senior Michael Archbold was eighth in the 400 (51.14). The 4x800 relay team – comprised of Hanson and juniors Andrew Bachmann, Shomo Das and Robbie Flanigan – finished seventh (8:06.83). The 4x100, 4x200 and 4x400 relays did not advance past preliminaries.

Comprising those teams were Archbold, Ochs, senior Brian Donahue and juniors Eric Freeman, Tim Bryson, Jake Brodbeck and William Sherman. Sherman was 11th in the prelims in the 100 (11.12) St. X finished second at districts to Mason. The Bombers totaled 92 points, while Mason had 147. Withrow (67), Moeller (47) and Walnut Hills (47) rounded out the top five.

St. X also finished second at the Greater Catholic League South division championship to La Salle. The Bombers amassed 77.5 points, while La Salle had 106. Elder (48) and Moeller (24.5) were third and fourth, respectively. St. X finished 12th at regionals. The Bombers return several seniors-to-be next year, which bodes well for next season.


St. Xavier High School junior Ryan Schneiber competes in the shot put during the regional championships May 28. He finished sixth (52-10.00).

the 800-meter run and the 1,600-meter run and was also part of the district champion 4x800-meter relay, along with Jordan Thiery, Sarah Pierce and Emily York. Senior Lundyn Thompson was the other big standout, as she finished second in the discus and won a district title in the shotput. She also broke the school’s shotput record this season, a record that had been standing since the 1980s. Other top performers were Kerry Caddell, who finished second in the 200-meter dash, and Taylor Bove, who was second in the long jump. Pierce is also a strong distance runner and finished third in the 800-meter run. At the regional meet, the 4x800-meter relay fell just short of qualifying for state, with a fifth-place finish. Thompson also finished fifth in the discus. Flynn said the team this

season is comparable to the one the Mohawks had last season overall, as the two teams had nearly identical scores at the district meet. The only difference is in the strengths of each team. The Mohawks are much stronger in the distance races with more depth this season and also in the long jump, as freshman Bove has been a standout in that event. Freshman Rebecca “Kansas” Ashton has been impressive in the hurdles and finished fourth in the 100-meter hurdles at the district meet. Thiery and juniors Jen Beck and Emily York have been big contributors in the relays. The team has had a lot of personal records at the end of the season.

Eighty-nine undocumented students will be graduating from high schools across the United States this spring. These students were brought to the United States by their parents as small children. They know the U.S.A. as their home, but have been branded as illegal aliens. They want to be like the rest of their friends making plans to go to college or work, to look to the future as citizens of the U.S.A. But because of our broken immigration laws, these students will never be able to become citizens without a pathway to citizenship that does not exist for them today. Now is the time for our legislators to legislate for a comprehensive equitable immigration reform. Ruth Ann Ravenna Blue Heron Lane Colerain Township

Health care is Christian

If it wasn’t so serious, it would be hilarious. These people, like Dr. Richard Fry, either can’t read or are just too selfish to try to help other people. When they claim that the “health care legislation” is not Christian, they ignore Jesus Christ’s teachings in the eighth beatitude and “love God with all your heart and your neighbor as yourself.” Mr. Fry, Jesus wasn’t kidding. This is Christian legislation, the greatest since the freeing of the slaves by President Lincoln. Red the Bible. Bob Klug North Arbor Woods Drive Green Township

Trustees irresponsible

I spoke at the May 24 Green Township Board of Trustees meeting regarding the clearly political selection of an unqualified individual for a $50,000 per year executive assistant job. That person is Jennifer Triantafilou, the wife of the Hamilton County Republican Party chairman. After offering nothing more than platitudes and diversionary statements, Trustee David Linnenberg (who interviewed no candidates) shut off further discussion of the matter. Despite township documents indicating that Triantafilou has only nine months of (semi) applicable work experience, that she has an associates degree – when

her resume lists none – and that she didn’t even make the list of the top four experienced candidates, she got the job. The trustees claim that Triantafilou is doing a fine job (surprise!) and that anyone else who questions their applicant selection process is just beating a dead horse. In reality, the trustees realize the weakness of their justifications and find that silencing critics is a last defense. My investigations have revealed that this political hiring is apparently only the tip of the iceberg in a long line of irresponsible behavior. It’s easy to waste the taxpayers’ money when you face no effective oversight. Jeffry Smith Mount Airy Avenue Green Township

Willke responds to claim

Ann Thompson in Viewpoints states that in the new federal health insurance bill, she claims that even if abortion is forbidden, “There always will be abortions, the only difference is will it be safe, legal, rare or illegal?” But let’s look at Poland’s 40 million people. Abortion had been legal and state-paid for 44 years and averaged around 150,000 per year. In 1993, under the new democratic government, a law was passed forbidding abortion. By 2005, the total number of abortions had dropped to 225. When the change was proposed, the media, United Nations agencies, Planned Parenthood and others, loudly predicted that such a law would only drive abortion underground. It did not happen. To be specific, the number of miscarriages reported in 1955 under the old law was 60,000. By 2003, it was 41,000. Deaths due to pregnancy and births dropped from 70 in 1990 to 24 in 2005. Newborns dying after birth in 1990 were 19, in 2005 were 6.7. And so here is a modern western nation of 40 million people after four decades of state-paid abortion on demand. The law in 1993 made abortion illegal. None of the dire predictions of backalley abortions materialized. The actual affects were almost no abortions, healthy women, greater infant survival. Dr. J.C. Willke President Life Issues Institute

Library helps you keep reading It’s show time! The spotlight is on reading this summer as the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County presents Lights, Camera, READ! Our 2010 summer reading program premieres June 1 and runs through July 31. Your entire family (preschoolers, kids, teens, and grown-ups) can play a leading role in the reading scene at the North Central Branch Library and win prizes, too.

Studies show that library summer reading programs can help prevent the loss of reading skills due to time away from school. Plus, by actually participating in summer reading along with their children, parents become reading role models. Research also shows that is one of the best ways to get kids excited about reading. We’ve set the stage for fun with many programs based on

Tips for the gardening season Gardening offers many benefits including the opportunity to increase physical activity and eat nutritious vegetables. However, there are some important tips to remember to stay safe and healthy this gardening season.

Get vaccinated

• All adults should get a tetanus vaccination every 10 years. Tetanus lives in the soil and enters the body through breaks in the skin. While using sharp tools to dig in the dirt, and handling plants with sharp points, you are particularly prone to tetanus infections during gardening season. • Before you start gardening this season, make sure your tetanus/diphtheria vaccination is up to date.

Dress to protect

• Wear long sleeves, widebrimmed hats, sunglasses and sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher for protection from the sun.

• Protect yourself from diseases like West Nile virus and Lyme disease caused by mosquitoes and ticks by using insect repellent containing DEET, and also wear long-sleeved shirts and pants tucked in your socks. • Wear safety goggles, earplugs, gloves, sturdy shoes and long pants as appropriate when using lawn mowers, other machinery, chemicals or sharp tools.

Put safety first

• Follow instructions and warning labels on chemicals and garden equipment. • Make sure equipment is working properly and sharpen tools carefully to reduce the risk for injury. • Pregnant women should be particularly careful to wash hands after gardening and before eating fruits or vegetables from a garden to reduce the risk of toxoplasma infection.

Heat-related illness

Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink. • Avoid drinking liquids that contain alcohol or large amounts of sugar; these actually cause you to lose more body fluid. • Take breaks often and stop working if you experience breathlessness or muscle soreness. • Pay attention to signs of heat-related illness, including extremely high body temperature, headache, rapid pulse, dizziness, nausea, confusion or unconsciousness. Tim Ingram is the health commissioner for Hamilton County.

When President Obama announced that he wanted to speak at a high school commencement, he looked for a school that prepares students well for college and careers. Any Ohio career center could have fit the bill. Called Joint Vocational School Districts, these public schools were formed in the 1960s and ‘70s to offer technical programs to Ohio students in a practical and costeffective way. Groups of school districts joined these regional JVSDs; juniors and seniors could choose to complete their high schooling at the affiliated JVSD or in satellite JVSD programs at their school to receive specialized career instruction and skills. Some districts, such as Cincinnati Public Schools, developed career-technical programs within their district. For nearly four decades, Ohio students have learned dozens of careers, from animal science to health care to robotics to cosme-

tology to dental assisting to firefighting. In many programs graduates were certified in their career field-or at least years ahead of other Robin White high school Community graduates enterthat field. Press guest ingBut somecolumnist thing happened to JVSDs – by now more accurately called career centers – as we entered the 21st century. Always closely aligned with local business, school leaders saw that even as they learned high level skills, successful students needed the ability and enthusiasm to keep learning. The numbers of career-technical students who went directly to college skyrocketed and the percentages of college-bound graduates now rival those schools ranked high in state standards. At

area career centers, 50 to 80 percent of students go directly to post-secondary education. Through dual credit options and articulation agreements, many of those students finish high school having already earned college credit. The skills needed to be successful as adults have changed as well. All high school graduates need to be technologically savvy; they need to have strong problemsolving skills, they must be able to collaborate with their co-workers, they must understand the global marketplace and they must be able to think critically. Excellent K-12 school districts understand this and outstanding teachers incorporate these skills daily in the classroom. Careertechnical education is an ideal setting for learning these skills; students work together in a hands-on environment each day, solving the kinds of problems they’ll face in the workforce. Career-technical education provides opportunities for adults who

want to change careers, too. Thousands of displaced, unemployed, and underemployed workers who faced uncertain futures in recent years are now working in new careers thanks to the shortterm, high-impact programs available at area career centers. The next time you eat a fine meal in a restaurant, are cared for by a health care professional, ask someone to develop a Web site for your business, talk with your child’s teacher, or fly on a commercial jetliner, chances are you’ve been served by a career center graduate. They come to us as sophomores who have a strong sense of what they want to do with their future, and they leave prepared for college, careers and life. Robin White is president and chief executive officer of the Great Oaks Career Campuses. This was also signed by Maggie Hess, superintendent Warren County Career Center, and Ken Morrison, superintendent US Grant Career Center.

Life often repress one of the poles of the tension. There are other kinds of ambivalence besides relational ones – such as uncertainty or indecisiveness about a certain course of action, ambivalence about a job, religion, sibling, etc. Children at first need unequivocal messages as they begin to grow. Before maturity we are not in possession of capacities for dealing with the ambiguities and ambivalences of life. We encounter them as painful contradictions. Even at a tender age we experi-

the human condition, and familiar with mysteries. Ambivalence is experiencing contradictory feelings or attitudes toward the same person, object, event or situation. Conflicting feelings are often strong toward parents since they are agents of both discipline and affection. Spouses may also notice sporadic love/hate sentiments toward the other. The polarity of such feelings can be temporarily disturbing when they occur. Some find them so troublesome to admit that they

ence both gratification and frustrations from the same parents. At first we attempt to manage our ambiguity and ambivalence with various strategies, many of them unhealthy. We may blunt our feelings, repress, distract ourselves, dissociate, deny, and later on develop addictions or personality traits. Eventually we’re meant to learn healthier ways. We learn to recognize and hold the tensions between opposites such as love/hate, dark side/good side, vindictiveness/forgiveness, and

choose to acknowledge but discipline the undesirable. We come to see we are imperfect humans living in am imperfect world, yet struggling for wholeness as a person. Life contains many rich experiences as well as paradox and challenging mysteries. In the midst of living our questions, which are often enveloped in anxiety, ambiguity and ambivalence, poet Rainer Maria Rilke offers practical advice: “Bear with patience all that is unresolved in your heart, and try to love the questions themselves, as if they were rooms yet to enter or books written in a foreign language. Don’t dig for answers that can’t be

How grown up are we? At old-time county fairs young men sought to demonstrate their physical strength by swinging a huge mallet and striking a mat. It propelled a weight upward. If it hit and rang the bell, it was evidence they were macho. What are some ways to measure how developed we are inside? “The test of a psychologically mature person, and therefore spiritually mature, will be found in his or her capacity to handle what one might call the Triple As: anxiety, ambiguity and ambivalence,” writes Dr. James Hollis in “Creating A Life.” Anxiety, as we well know, is the agitation and stress we feel when we anticipate impending risk, danger, catastrophe or misfortune. The future threat may be real or imagined, internal or external, but always uncomfortable. Recall how we feel when called upon to speak to a crowd. Ambiguity is a confusing grayness. It flows from our ego’s desire for clarity and security. Yogi Berra creates ambiguity when he advises, “If you come to a fork in the road – take it!” We want life, God, and the world to be in a permanently knowable condition. The younger or less mature we are the more we become frustrated by the absence of clarity. The older and more mature we become doesn’t banish the ambiguities and anxieties of life, but we are more able to tolerate them as part of life. Our experiences and maturation render us more humble, understanding of

Traditional tabbouleh for son’s birthday dinner It will be a Lebanese dinner this Sunday for my s o n , Shane, to celebrate Rita his birthHeikenfeld day. I have Rita’s kitchen to ask what he wants, but I’m pretty sure tabbouleh and fried kibbee will be requested. I’ll be making stuffed grape vine leaves, too, since the wild grape leaves are the perfect size right now. I wish I had some of Joe and Mary Lou Zarig’s homemade Lebanese flatbread to serve with it – Joe and Mary Lou are great Lebanese cooks and bakers. I’ll also make some baklava. I love preparing my family’s Lebanese recipes and I can never get enough. That’s why you’ll find me at the St. Anthony

of Padua’s Lebanese festival Sunday, June 6, from noon to 8 p.m. The church is on Victory Parkway. This festival is fun, with rides, Lebanese dancing and authentic Lebanese food. I love everything they prepare! Get details at 513961-0120.

My mom’s tabbouleh

Traditionally, this is served with wild grapevine leaves to act as a scoop, or leaf lettuce, or flatbread. This is a real “go to taste” recipe, wonderful as a main meal, stuffed into pita pockets for lunch, or as a versatile, healthy side dish. Tabbouleh is a healthy salad using bulgur wheat (great for lowering cholesterol and contains vitamin E) and an abundance of summer vegetables. It’s all the rage in local delis, and is expensive to buy. 1 cup bulgur wheat 4-6 tomatoes, chopped

1 bunch green onions, chopped 1 bunch parsley, chopped 1 bunch radishes, chopped (optional but good) 1-2 regular cucumbers, peeled and chopped, or 1 English cucumber, chopped 1 bell pepper, chopped 2-3 teaspoons cumin, or to taste Several sprigs mint leaves, chopped (opt.) Several sprigs basil leaves, chopped (opt.) Salt and pepper to taste 1 ⁄4 cup canola oil, or to taste Place wheat in bowl and rinse under cool water three times. Leave about 1⁄4 inch of water after the third rinse on top of the wheat to soften it. Let sit for 15 minutes or until water is absorbed. Squeeze to drain any remaining liquid out. Meanwhile, mix your vegetables: Add all vegetables in large bowl, mixing gently.

Add cumin, mint, basil and salt and pepper. Add wheat, and mix well. Add oil, a little at a time, and mix. Taste for seasonings. Add lemon juice if desired. Serves six to eight as a main meal, 10 as a first course.

Tips from Rita’s Kitchen

Bulgur wheat is sometimes called cracked wheat. It looks a little bit like cous cous and is creamy to tan in color. It comes in several grinds. I like the fine or medium grind. Some folks like to put a squeeze of lemon juice in the salad.

Jim Grassinger’s mom’s mock turtle soup

Jim and Gerri Grassinger live in Anderson; our kids went to high school with theirs. We have many fond memories of Jim filming the

kids during track races for McNicholas High. Jim shared his Mom’s mock turtle soup and it looks delicious. No wonder Jim said it’s a family favorite. I hope he invites me over for a bowl. 1 pound ground beef 1 pound ground veal 1 32-ounce bottle ketchup * 4 cups water 1 large onion, diced 1 rib celery, diced 1 lemon, sliced 1 teaspoon allspice 2 hard boiled eggs, chopped 2 tablespoon vinegar 1 ⁄4 cup browned flour Crumble uncooked beef and veal into water, add ketchup, water, onion and celery in large pot.

DaVinci Code, has sold 60 million copies. He claims much of what he says to be fact. He addresses several contemporary trends in one book: Did Jesus marry and have a child? Are the Gnostic gospels more reliable than the four gospels? Did Constantine arbitrarily choose the canon of the New Testament? Is the text of the Bible hopelessly corrupted? These and other questions will be addressed in responding to Brown’s book. There are two sessions on Saturday, June 12. At 9 a.m., the session is Inspiration and Authority. What exactly do we mean when we talk about the inspiration of the Bible? Are translations inspired? Is the Bible a human book?

What about errors that have been pointed out in Scripture? Is the Bible infallible or inerrant? What does inerrancy mean and not mean? Are all the books of the Bible equally inspired? Does the Bible teach us science? These and other questions will be discussed with plenty of time for questions. At noon, there will be lunch and The Case for the Bible. Lunch is provided for $3 per person. Can we put together a case for the Bible that you could present to a skeptic? This talk will sketch a linear-logical case for the Bible with some discussion of the content needed for development. For information, call the church at 542-9025.

Firefighters memorial to expand 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 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 with a 16-by-16-inch granite paver that will become a forever lasting part of the park. The “Captain’s Paver” costs $100 and is only available to fire departments to participate in purchasing. There is also a corporate challenge being extended to community business stakeholders that will give special recognition for their benevolent gift.
