Colerain Twp. moving park services Consolidating at Community Center By Jennie Key

Marley Molkentin won the national Teens Take on Health Video Challenge for her video “Solving Food Deserts.” JENNIE KEY/THE COMMUNITY PRESS


By Jennie Key

Colerain Twp. — Marley Mol-

kentin is a wizard at video. She loves video production and it shows in her work. She’s good. And she’s not the one saying it. The 15-year-old sophomore at St. Ursula Academy just won the national Teens Take on Health Video Challenge, sponsored by 4H and Molina Healthcare and received the grand prize award for her video “Solving Food Deserts.” The Colerain Township teen, daughter of Jeff and Stephanie Molkentin, was a student at St. Vivian School before moving on to St. Ursula for high school. Marley says she has been working with video production at school and really enjoys it. Her health teacher, Mary Porter, saw information about the contest and passed it along. Marley said she was looking for something different and chose food deserts after hearing about the challenges some families have to get access to healthy food. She learned about food deserts from her mom, who is a social worker for a home health care service. The video addresses the need for more community gar-

dens to be developed in areas where residents lack access to healthy food choices at local stores and instead rely on fast food markets and gasoline stations for what they eat. “Not a lot of people know what a food desert is,” she said. “After learning about the problem, I am suggesting community gardens as part of the solution. I know they are not the only answer, but they can definitely help. I hope the video starts to make people aware of the problem.” Marley said she borrowed equipment from school, because she wanted the video to be as professional as possible. It was a lot of work: she visited three local community gardens: Gabriel’s Place, Gorman Heritage Farm, and Permaganic Co. Mom Stephanie was a big help; “She did a lot of driving,” Marley said. In fact, the video became something of a family affair as the garden visits began. Even 11-year-old brother Ryan tagged along as Marley filmed. “We found all of these gardens in our backyard, so to speak,” Stephanie said. “Once Marley started researching, she found a lot of community gardens in this area. It was surprising. We are very proud of

idea if it was good enough to win.” She submitted it, and then the wait began. Marley checked the submissions as they showed up on the contest website. And the contest kept extending the deadline, prolonging her wait. “I thought I had a good chance,” she said. “But you don’t know.” As the deadline to submit passed, she began to check the site for information. Because the contest entries were voted on, she networked, contacting everyone she knew and then through those people, a lot of people she didn’t know, asking for their votes for her work. The wait continued. Ironically, the email informing her of her grand prize status went into her spam box, thanks to the “Winner!” greeting at the top of the message. While she was waiting to hear from the contest sponsors, they were waiting to hear from their big winner. “I was waiting, and it sat in there for eight days,” Marley said. “But it was worth waiting for.” In addition to the thrill of having her work recognized, the grand prize includes an allexpense paid trip for four to

Colerain Twp. — A resignation at the Colerain Community Center set off a chain reaction of personnel changes and will save the township money in the long run. Andrea Wade resigned her position at the community center and rather than hire someone to fill it, Colerain Township Administrator Jim Rowan moved people around. Tawanna Molter, who Rowan was the administrative assistant for the public services department, has moved to the community center. She will take over Wade’s duties and continue handling the township website and park programs, shelter rentals and sale of park vehicle permits. Rowan said the changes will save the township about $44,000 annually. “Residents should come to the community center for vehicle permits or to arrange for shelter rentals,” Molter said. Rowan said the plan initially was to hire a parttime receptionist for the parks and public services department. Instead, the township will have a reserve police officer work with the Colerain Township Zoning Department to do zoning code enforcement. Some other responsibilities, such as sale of rightof-way permits, will move to the zoning department. “This consolidates our services and it’s a great move for our residents,” Rowan said. “Residents will only have to go to the administration building or the community center for permits or rentals.” “This is part of an ongoing effort by the township to be fiscally responsible,” he said. “When we have a resignation or an open position, we are going to really look at whether it is necessary. We intend to continue to give as good or better service while saving money where we can.”

La Salle senior honors veterans with Eagle Scout project

“Her video features a topic that is so important to our local community and it’s not very familiar to a lot of people,” she said. “We are hoping to expand our garden presence in the neighborhood, and this gift allows us to increase our incremental growth.” The mission of Gabriel’s Place is to provide a “safe, beautiful and spiritually nourishing gathering place for the Avondale community” according to its web site. Marley says the experience has made her even more interested in video production, which she says she may want to pursue as a career. She is taking a video production class at school in the fall. “My teacher says he’s going to push me really hard, because he knows what I am capable of,” she said. She plans to push back, as she wants her school to offer more media and technology classes. She has plans for her prize money, and is in the market for a good digital SLR camera. And she’s looking forward to her New York trip, which will include entry to a taping of “The Chew.”

“I thought it would be a good idea to raise the flags of all the different military branches for the veterans.”

By Kurt Backscheider

Green Twp. — Trey Prybal said the township’s Veterans Park honors military veterans in many ways, but he noticed there was something missing. The park features the Veterans Tribute Tower, a memorial plaza and an old Prybal Army tank, but flags representing the military branches have never flown above the park. Through his Eagle Scout project, Prybal set out to change that. The Green Township teen, who is entering his senior year at La Salle High School, recently completed the installation of six flagpoles at the park’s memorial plaza. The poles fly the flags of the U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast

Guard and the U.S. Merchant Marines. “When I was doing my merit badge for lifesaving, I was talking to my merit badge counselor about what I should to for my Eagle Scout project and he said I should do something that inspires me,” said Prybal, a member of Boy Scout Troop 850 at St. Ignatius Church. “I’ve been considering going into the Marines, so I thought it would be a good idea to raise the flags of all the different military branches for the veterans.” He received donations from family members to purchase the poles and flags, and said he led a

team of nine people to install them at the park. After the poles were erected, Prybal and his crew finished the project by putting down new mulch. A total of 99.5 volunteer hours were put into the project, he said. “It felt pretty good to finish it,” he said. “I think a lot of veterans who see it will be proud.” Patricia Prybal, Trey’s mother, said she and her husband couldn’t be happier their son accomplished his goal of becoming an Eagle Scout. “We’re very proud of him for sticking with it and doing such a nice job,” she said. “His project looks so nice. We’re happy he finished it.” Trey said he realized he chose the right project for his Eagle Scout the

day he was at the park laying mulch. As they were spreading the mulch around, he said a little girl, clutching a small American flag and walking alongside her mother, approached him. The girl asked if she could place her flag at the base of the pole flying the Marine Corps flag in honor of her father who is serving in the Marines. He told her she certainly could. “It was a moving moment,” he said. Prybal, who plays lacrosse and swims for La Salle and is also a member of the school’s Signum Fidei leadership organization, said he’s been involved in scouting since the first grade and he’s glad he completed his goal of earning the Boy Scouts’ highest honor. “There was a lot of stress at times, but it feels good to finish it,” he said. “I had a lot of motivation to see it through.” He expects to receive the rank of Eagle Scout during a court of honor ceremony sometime this August.

JEDD hearing set for July 30 Colerain Twp. — The township has scheduled a public hearing this month to talk about setting up a Joint Economic Development District for the Liberty Nursing Health Care of Colerain. The hearing is set for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 30, in the Trustees’ Chamber at the Colerain Township Government Complex, 4200 Springdale Road. Colerain Township Administrator Jim Rowan said the township may have other items on the agenda at the special meeting. Last year, township trustees decided to establish a joint economic development district to help pay for infrastructure costs for the Liberty Nursing Health Care of Colerain project at Livingston and Blue Rock roads. Colerain Township Economic Development Director Frank Birkenhauer said the nursing center will bring about 100 jobs to the township. Rowan said while this JEDD is only for the nursing center, the township’s

financial advisory committee recommended the township study a larger JEDD to Rowan generate revenue to help offset funding losses and perhaps ease the tax burden on property owners. “The committee’s recommendation was that we pursue a larger JEDD, perhaps all of Colerain Avenue, and we are in the process of a study which should be complete by the end of the year,” he said. Colerain will partner with Cheviot to collect a 2 percent income tax from the employees of the health care center if the JEDD is approved. Cheviot City Council has already approved the JEDD. Colerain and Cheviot would divide the money generated by the JEDD, with the the city keeping 10 percent (an estimated $8,000 per year) and the township receiving 90

percent (estimated at $72,000 per year). The township share pays for the infrastructure, and once that project is paid for, the township’s share then goes into its general fund. Birkenhauer said the JEDD money will extend sewer lines to the project at an estimated cost of $300,000. The proposed JEDD is projected to generate about $80,000 annually once the nursing care facility opens. The township will use $50,000 a year for six

years to pay off the infrastructure costs, with the remaining $22,000 going into the general fund. The township expects the life of the JEDD to be 99 years. Residents can see the proposed JEDD agreement and a description and map of the area covered by the economic development plan at the Colerain Township Administration Building, 4200 Springdale Road, during daily business hours until the public hearing.

County agency awarded state grant for at-risk youth services Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services, in partnership with other local agencies that serve people with disabilities and mental illness, has been awarded a state grant to fund services for at-risk youth resulting from an initiative by Ohio Governor John Kasich. The grant is for two years, totals $693,000, and is being awarded by the Ohio Departments of Developmental Disabilities and Mental Health & Addiction Services. The Hamilton County grant is one of seven across the state, chosen from 38 applications. “We are grateful to be one of the seven areas in Ohio to receive support from the Governor to help families and youth who are at risk of harming themselves or others,” said Alice Pavey, Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services superintendent. “We in Hamilton County are es-

pecially fortunate to work with such a wide range of community partners who are joining with us in this grant to develop more comprehensive services than we’ve been able to provide with local funds.” Partners in the grant are Lifepoint Solutions, Finding Hope, Hope for Children and Families, Resident Home Corporation, Lighthouse Youth Services, and the Hamilton County Mental Health & Recovery Services Board. The grant is for targeted development of services that use best practices for respite, wraparound, 24-hour crisis response, therapy, assessment, planning, and training, and trauma-informed care. The directors of the Ohio Departments of Developmental Disabilities (John Martin) and Mental Health & Addiction Services (Tracy Plouck) are to visit Hamilton County soon to discuss the grant.

Veterans Park getting improvements By Kurt Backscheider

Green Twp. — Frequent visitors to Veterans Park will notice some big changes at the park. The township began a project to upgrade the the park, 6231 Harrison Ave., the week of July 15. “We’re constructing an entirely new playground at Veterans Park,” said Green Township Administrator Kevin Celarek. “It will be a substantial improvement, and it’s something that will be really special. It’s going to be state-of-the-art for this area.” Aside from the addition of the Veterans Tribute Tower and a fourth handball court, he said this summer’s renovation is the

biggest change to take place at the park since it first opened in the early 1990s. Green Township Public Services Director Joe Lambing said the improvements include the installation of a new tot playground for young children, new swing sets with a rubberized safety surface, new half-court basketball courts and an additional picnic area with tables. The new tot playground is being built where the old basketball courts were located, he said. The new play area will also have the safe rubberized surface, as well as shade sails to keep the area cool for children in the hot weather, he said. Lambing said the old playground, which no longer complied with updated provisions in

the Americans with Disability Act, was removed. “It was outdated and getting a little long in the tooth,” he said. Removing the old playground created space for the new swing sets and picnic area, he said. “It will really open up the park,” he said. “I think it’s going to make a big difference.” Walnut Grove Construction Inc. is installing the new playground and safety surfaces, and Scott Ranz Construction Inc. is doing all the concrete work, Lambing said. The entire project costs $150,000. Celarek said the township is using tax increment financing funds to pay for the work. He said everything should be completed by the end of August.

The swing set area at Veterans Park is also getting a new rubberized surface. The township is making improvements to the park. As part of the upgrades, additional picnic tables with shade sails will be installed near the swing set. THANKS TO LISA WERELEY

Song gives ‘Voice’ to Mt. Healthy students

By Tony Meale

Mt. Healthy — Hayden Waddell hasn’t taken an arts class since kindergarten, but thanks to his mother, Wanda, the soonto-be third grader at Mount Healthy South Elementary recently had an opportunity to flex his creative muscles. “It’s so important that children be involved in the creative process,” Wanda said. “These are critical times for development.” Wanda, who has written and filmed commercial concepts (including an IAMS jingle for P&G), knows all about it – which is why she was saddened when the Mount Healthy school district had to cut its arts program in 2010, leaving K-3 students without access to art and music courses. So, Waddell – along with her professional associates, David and Marla Heffron – worked to give students the next best thing: the opportunity to let their voices be heard. Literally. Scores of elementary students – including Waddell and his brother, Robert – participated in “A Voice,” a song written by the Heffrons that is in the process of becoming a music video. The song, which is 5:03 long, is being sold on Amazon and iTunes for 99 cents. All proceeds will be donated to the district to support the arts. The video, meanwhile, will include interviews with the students, who were asked questions such as, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” and “What changes do you want to see in the world?” “I was kind of shy,” Waddell,

9, said of his interview. Other students set lofty goals; one girl hopes to cure cancer. “The song is about hope and this generation,” Wanda said. “We got some very powerful statements from these kids.” Even more important, Wanda provided a creative outlet for students that wouldn’t have had it otherwise – and, in some cases, for students who haven’t had it at all. “My little brother loves to be artistic, but I feel like he can’t really share that,” said Robert, 12. “It’s kind of sad.” That’s the same way Mount Healthy City School District superintendent Lori Handler felt in 2010. Handler adores the arts, but in the face of cuts, English, math and science take precedence. “It was a painstaking choice to have to do that,” Handler said, “which is why we are so excited about this project.” Wanda is excited, too. She hopes a local business will step forward to sponsor the song and video, spread the word and perhaps donate to the district. While reinstating the arts program would cost tens of thousands of dollars, she hopes enough money can be raised to support projects such as “A Voice” in the future. “We want people to understand that this is important; we have some wonderful, beautiful minds in our school district, and we really need to do what we can to nurture them,” Wanda said. “Then we can get children involved who don’t get to go through the creative process. “We’re surrounded by art. It’s all around us every day. People want that beauty in their life, however they can find it.”

State budgets provides more for schools By Jennie Key

School officials are taking a wait-and-see attitude on the money their districts will receive int he new state budge recently signed by Gov. John Kasich. The governor signed the budget June 30 that calls for $2.7 billion in tax cuts and $1.5 billion in new funds for education. Officials in school districts say they have have learned to wait from past experiences when the money received didn’t match projections early in the budget cycle. In the Northwest Local School District, projections from the Ohio School Board Association showed the district could expect an increase in state aid of about $1.1 million over the two years; $645,535 for fiscal year 2014, and an additional $531,619 in 2015. The district has an annual

budget of about about $87 million. Northwest Treasurer Randy Bertram said district officials are discussing how the money could be spent but also said he still doesn’t have firm numbers from the state, so he is reluctant to be specific until he is certain of what the district will actually receive. And officials say they don’t know the effect of other changes brought by the budget, so it’s a fluid situation from their point of view. In the Mount Healthy City School District, Treasurer Rebecca Brooks shares that wariness. She says she is cautiously optimistic following the signing of the budget, but she doesn’t count money until the district actually receives it. “We’ve been told we were getting money in the past and things changed and we didn’t,” she said. “If we get what we’re being told we are getting, it will be good for the district. We

made a lot of cuts and we might be able to put some things back.” Mount Healthy has an annual budget of about $34 million; Brooks said the state budget just signed would give her district an increase of about about $3.5 million over the next two years; $1.25 million in fiscal year 2014, which is a 6.25 percent increase over state aid received in 2013, and $2.24 million in fiscal year 2015 which would be a 10.5 percent increase from 2014. Brooks said the district made about $6 million in cuts over the past two years and about $10 million since 2003. She said she hopes to know more information after the state conducts regional budget meetings later this month. If the projections run true, the district is talking about whether it can bring back programs such as music, art and physical education in the elementary buildings.

McAuley students learn about IT careers Six McAuley students attended the 8th annual Women in Technology Conference. This conference was presented by the INTERAlliance of Greater Cincinnati and sponsored by Citi, Fifth-Third Bank, GE, Great American Insurance, and Procter & Gamble, along with Miami University, the University of Cincinnati, and Xavier University. The conference was an opportunity for female high school students to get answers to any questions about careers in the field of IT or to simply explore what this field offers and whether it might for them. Highlights of the conference included:

» Interactive sessions where students learned, through discussions with both academic and corporate professionals, the broad spectrum of career opportunities in IT, as well as the range of degree programs they can pursue in college to carve out a career in IT. » Opportunities to network with college students who have already made the choice to pursue IT as their career. They gave advice on how to make the best of one’s college experience. » Opportunities to talk to women from Citi, Fifth-Third, GE, Great American Insurance, P&G, and more, about their careers in IT and about employ-

ment opportunities in these companies in the field of IT. The McAuley students who took advantage of this special day were Melissa Jose, Abigail Meeks, Selah Meyer, Allison Moning, Samantha Rauh, and Abigail Sander. Senior Allison Moning, the daughter of Joseph and Cheryl Moning of White Oak said, “ We did a fun activity at the IT conference where we came up with technological strategies to improve sales and customer satisfaction in a school cafeteria.” Moning will major in computer science next year at either Thomas More College or the University of Cincinnati.

Thomas marks a first in St. X history By Tom Skeen

Perfect Service sparks SWOL winners

Son of Major Leaguer talked of perfect game By Mark D. Motz

COLERAIN TOWNSHIP — Superstitions, no. Rituals, yes. So said Kyle Service, who pitched a perfect game for the U-14 Colerain Heaters select baseball team the last week of June. Defying baseball convention, players, coaches and even the pitcher himself talked about the perfecto on the bench as zeroes piled up across the scoreboard. Service said he didn’t mind hearing the words “perfect game” as he authored his first. (His previous best outing was a complete-game one-hitter two season ago.) Nor did he perform any pregame ablution or oblation prior to pitching. “I’m not that superstitious,” he said. “I do have a ritual before every pitch. I take my hat off and run my hand through my hair.” Service is too young to even understand the question – posed jokingly – if any Gaylord Perry shenanigans took place on the mound while removing his hat. Not that the Colerain Middle School

honor student – who will soon begin his high school career at Elder – is out of tune with pitching history. It’s just that his history is more personal. Kyle’s father, Scott Service, played at Aiken High School before embarking on a 12-year pitching career in the Major Leagues, including time with the hometown Cincinnati Reds in the mid 1990s. His mom, Tonya Service, had an uncle by marriage who played for the New York Yankees. “I realized (I could throw a perfect game) in about the fifth inning,” Service said. “I don’t know how to explain it, but it was just awesome.” Heaters head coach Gary Hamant thought so, too. “I’ve never seen one in person at any level,” he said. “Everybody knew. Kyle knew. And they were talking to him about it. I let it go a little, but then going into the seventh, I just went down and said let’s get three more outs and sent them out there. “The other team knew. They came up trying to break it open.” No such luck. “Typically (youth pitchers) don’t go out and throw seven complete innings,” Hamant said. “Usually their pitch count gets up there before they can finish a game. But Kyle, I think he was under 60 pitches. He had amazing control. “He threw 12 strikeouts and we had

to make nine plays. Some of them were routine, but maybe half were critical.” Service agreed. “The defense saved me a few times,” he said. “There was a shallow fly to center and our center fielder (Lorenzo Kendricks) made a diving catch. Our shortstop (Nate Werner) made a great play jumping up to take away a hit. “There was one hit down the third base line and (Seth Webster) is about six feet tall. If he was a regular person, he wouldn’t have been tall enough to catch it and it probably would have been a double.” Service helped himself defensively, too. A hard grounder up the line ricocheted off the mitt of the first baseman, but second baseman Derek Hamant – the coach’s son – scooped it up and made a quick throw to the covering pitcher for a bang-bang out. “It gave the whole team confidence,” Service said of the pitching gem. Hamant said it stemmed a losing skid and started a string of seven wins in a row to close the season. “He changed the momentum,” Hamant said. “The team pulled together. We got back on track and we won the Southwest Ohio League regional silver tournament. Kyle won the last game in the finals 7-6.”

SPRINGFIELD TWP. — Robbie Thomas took a moment to reflect on becoming the first St. Xavier Bomber in school history to receive an OHSAA/Southwest District Scholar-Athlete Scholarship during the awards banquet June 25 at the Dayton Marriott Hotel. “It meant a lot to me because some of the athletic directors told me nobody from (St. Xavier) had even got to the finalist section,” Thomas said. “Being the first person from St. X means a lot because a lot of big names and good guys have gone through our school.” According to, winners were selected based on grade point average, standardized test scores, athletic letters won, special athletic awards (all-league, all-dis- St. Xavier grad trict, all-state), Robbie Thomas team champion- shows off his ships (district, re- Scholar-Athlete gional and state) Scholarship. THANKS and a written essay. TO ST. XAVIER HIGH “My athletic di- SCHOOL rector (John Sullivan) nominated me and he told me he has been nominating people for nine years,” the soccer and hockey player said. “When he told me I moved on it was pretty special.” The money for the 33 district scholarships are financed through the sale of Tshirts and other clothing items at Southwest sectional and district tournaments. It’s been quite a year for Thomas. He was awarded the Hobey Baker High School Character Award back in November as a member of the Bomber hockey team who “most exemplifies the values and traits of Hobey Baker himself.” Thomas will attend Ohio State University on an academic and leadership scholarship through the College of Business, which will provide him full tuition over his four years in Columbus. While his plans for the next few years are in place, what he plans on doing after college is still a mystery. “I don’t know yet,” he said. “It took me a little while to decide what I wanted to major in at OSU.” His playing days at St. Xavier are behind him and playing at the Division I level is out of the question, but Thomas doesn’t want to give up sports for good quite yet. “I definitely plan on doing some intramurals,” he said. “I’m going to shy away form the club level because of the time commitment. I’m going (to college) for school and the experience, but still having some fun.”

Bacon competes in underwater championship By Mark D. Motz

MILWAUKEE — Perceptions change.

Just ask Roger Bacon High School rising junior Kevin Dinh, who competed with the Spartans in the USA Underwater Hockey 2013 National Championships July 12 to 14. Dinh began his underwater career as a skeptic at best. “I expected it to be ridiculous because I had never heard of it,” he said. “But the more I saw it, the more I played and the better I got, the more I loved it. It’s a lot of fun.” So much so that Dinh will be team president for the coming school year.

Primary responsibilities include deepening the pool – pardon the pun – of talent available to the team. “We’re looking for more people to join and looking to sell some of the incoming freshmen on the sport, to get a commitment from them to help sustain the team.” It’s a team 1984 Bacon graduate Paul Wittekind – now chairman of the social studies department – founded in 1997. Wittekind learned the game as a student at Ohio State University and thought his students might be interested in the unique game. It took some time, but by 1999 the Spartans entered their first competition. “We’re not only the the only high

school team in Cincinnati, we’re the only high school team in the U.S.,” Wittekind said. “Our kids are involved in every extracurricular under the sun and we share them with a lot of different teams and groups, but they are dedDinh icated. “Any swimmer can play this sport. You’re not practicing some kind of breath-holding capacity. You’re under for maybe 20 or 30 seconds and then come up and get your breath before you go back down. The team practices on Sundays during the school year starting around La-

bor Day weekend and running through the national championship, usually staged in late June or early July. “This was one of the latest they’ve ever had it,” Wittekind said. “We play in some regional tournaments over a weekend or two during the school year, but we don’t have a lot of live games before the nationals.” “It’s really an open championship. It’s not only college teams, but also adult teams from across the country, too. It’s a daunting challenge an the kids know it’s difficult.” Bacon beat its JV team twice – once in pool play and again in C-Division bracket See BACON, Page A9

action – on the final day of competition, but fell 8-1 against Michigan State University in pool play and 4-2 against the University of Pittsburgh in the bracket. Pitt and the Spartans tied 2-2 in the first half on a pair of goals by recent graduate Kevin Anneken, but the Panthers netted two goals in the second half while shutting out Bacon after the break. “As a team we grew,” said Dinh, who also runs cross country and wrestles for the Spartans in addition to working as a server at Frisch’s and

playing bass guitar in a rock band called Against the Horizon. “As each match went by we learned to play together more and more. Even though we didn’t really win any of our matches, it was worthwhile. “The best part was the last game. It was a tie at first. And even though we lost in the end, that was as well as we played. We earned we could play right with older, more experienced teams.” Bacon’s JV team suffered three defeats in C Division action the final day, while the alumni squad, Team Cincinnati, finished the sixth in the A Division tourney with a 1-2 record July 14 featuring a 2-0 win against Seattle.

Hope Lutheran Church plans expansion I love learning the history of a congregation. Since 2010, I have enjoyed getting to know Hope Lutheran Church and sharing the Hope story. Hope has been in Colerain Township since the mid-1950s. That was the time when many churches Lisa Arrington emerged as COMMUNITY PRESS part of the post-World GUEST COLUMNIST War II growth and population expansion. Hope’s first pastor, Rev. Clovis Frank, called on residents of the area to the first church meeting held in the Mount Airy Civic Association Building, Sept. 19, 1954, and 24 people attended. By 1956 there were more than 90 baptized members. After purchasing a house for a parsonage on Colerain Avenue, a building committee targeted 6831 Colerain Ave. Hope’s first church building was more like a “church home” for many families. Over the years, Hope has been described as a people-friendly church: loving the Lord, com-

munity service, and offering uplifting music for worship. But the 1950s mission building was not helping Hope grow. The church was hard to see from the road. It had a slew of water problems; and neighboring businesses were getting a little loud, especially when a car wash moved in next door. So in the 1990s the congregation of Hope began to look for a new location in the Colerain Township. Rev. Cathleen Thompson led the congregation in our relocation to corner of Blue Rock Road and Livingston. There were many challenges for this bold move: there was a lot money to raise, as well as surviving a year of temporary worship in a local Masonic Lodge. But the people of Hope were convinced building a new church would be worth it. The construction started well, until Hope was informed the soil needed to be “compacted.” Preparing the soil was a major unexpected expense, so the Fellowship Hall was reduced in size. Nevertheless, upon completing the project, everyone was grateful for the wonderful new space. The first worship service in the Blue Rock

ways known “Hope” is not just bricks and mortar. Hope rises with faith. Since 1998, our

CH@TROOM July 17 question Do you agree with the new abortion laws that were included in Ohio’s recently approved budget, such as prohibiting public hospitals entering into written agreements with ambulatory surgical centers that perform abortions to accept their patients in case of emergency, and requiring doctors to test for a fetal heartbeat, then inform the patient seeking an abortion in writing of the presence of that heartbeat, and then provide statistical likelihood that the fetus could be carried to term? Why or why not?

“YES. No explanation needed.” J.K.

“There is no middle ground between those who believe that abortion is the killing of a human being and those who believe it is the correction of an extremely unfortunate life choice before it is too late. “The women who are faced with the choice of a 20+ year commitment to raising a child they are not prepared to handle have a tough enough decision about their future. It should be their decision and theirs alone. “The folks who disagree with this have been unsuccessful at making abortion illegal so now they have stooped to low and despicable tactics trying to make it difficult or impossible for a woman to receive a safe and legal abortion. They would rather see a woman die from a botched abortion at an illegal clinic than compromise their belief. “They do not condone taking the child’s life but they have no qualms about killing the mother or dooming her to raise a child she is ill equipped to support. “This is special interest politics at its worst, disgusting.” F.S.D.

NEXT QUESTION After the George Zimmerman acquittal in Florida, Attorney General Eric Holder has said his department will review socalled “stand-your-ground” laws that allow a person who believes he or she is in danger to use deadly force in selfdefense. Do you support “stand-your-ground” laws? Why or why not? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to with Chatroom in the subject line.

“The Ohio legislators should all have to adopt two children born to mothers who did not want or could afford the children. They will probably continue to reduce welfare. Planned Parenthood should have greater funding not less.” Walter

“Absolutely not. This is a social issue and has no place in any budget. “It is also a mistake to make legislation that forces any American family to hide in the privacy of their homes out of fear for their government. “While this budget shows us that elected representatives think they own our homes, businesses, schools,and property, it also shows they wish to own our choices, too. “It’s scary, and they’ll pay for this puritanism at the next election.” K.P.

“I do not agree with this, particularly prohibiting public hospitals from entering into agreements to accept emergency patients. All women are entitled to equal health care and treatment. “Currently, clinics that perform abortions must have agreements with a hospital to provide emergency care. Pro-



A publication of

hibiting this essentially is closing some clinics down. “What is most appalling is that these abortion provisions were sneaked into the budget bill at the last minute, allowing no debate and then Kasich, surrounded by men, signed it into law. “It is a giant step backwards for women’s rights in this country and an embarrassment to the citizens of Ohio to allow such draconian laws on our books.” D.P.

“Absolutely not. One more case of the white, right, male dominated state legislator telling women that they are not smart enough to have control over their own bodies. “Why is it the Republicans, the ‘I love America’ group, who keep reducing the hard-fought rights of the middle, lower, and female class of citizens. First voter suppression, now a return to the 1950s. Next, if we are not careful, women will once again be chattels and nonwhites second-class citizens. “Wake up Ohioans, Kasich and cronies will destroy this great state. They got a start already. “I am an older, white, male, but I have a moral conscience and do not want the good old days.” J.Z.

“I disagree with everything about it. The way it was enacted by slipping it into a budget bill and the terms. Sneaking such action into the budget, and using the budget as a weapon against women, is as cowardly as it is cruel. “These amendments only create insurmountable barriers that effectively eliminate safe medical abortions as an option, which are legal in this country. If you want to prevent abortions make sure every woman has health care, a high school education, and access to

birth control. “Many Ohio women depend on Planned Parenthood for basic preventive health care. They also count on Planned Parenthood being there for them during the times of greatest need. “Politicians should not interfere with private health care needs of women. When the U.S. Supreme Court reaffirmed the legality of abortion it allowed states to set restrictions – without placing an ‘undue burden’ on a woman. Yet such a burden is precisely what Republicans at the Statehouse seek to apply.” K.F.S.

“I do not agree. I have been a pro-choice advocate for decades. I believe the governor is only giving in to his pro-life donors and doesn’t care much for women’s rights. “When a woman makes the heart-wrenching decision to abort she doesn’t need to hear the heartbeat or be put in danger if there is a problem and be refused admission at a public hospital. This is insane. Has the governor no compassion? “Every woman in Ohio should be outraged at this action. We deserve better.” E.E.C.

“I was on the bike path yesterday and came across a baby chipmunk someone had run over. “Brought to mind the following from the Gospel of Matthew … ‘Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.’ “Life is precious … in all forms. Wouldn’t it be wise to err on the side of caution … instead of encouraging people to only think about themselves?”

church family has been steadily growing with folks from all walks of life. In the fall of 2005, Hope welcomed Precious Years Learning Center. Having a Christian-based daycare and after school program expanded Hope’s ministry. The school has been a blessing, but the smaller Fellowship Hall and classrooms have made things very cramped. After a year of prayer and discernment, the congregation voted to raise funds for an expansion of our current Fellowship Hall and the Christian Education Wing. The theme has been: “Making Room for More Ministry.” An inspirational kick-off dinner in June featured Dan Lozier as guest speaker. As a father, educator, and a man of faith, Dan reminded us: God expands people. Taking that message to heart, God helped us exceeded our fund raising goal. It reminds us God can do anything! We are once again building hope, serving God. The Rev. Lisa Arrington is the pastor of Hope Lutheran Church, 4695 Blue Rock Road at the corner of Blue Rock and Livingston roads.

he 150th anniversary of Morgan’s Raid in the Civil War has given local communities a great opportunity to learn about their part in the war between the states. The sesquicentennial of the American Civil War, which runs through 2015, provides fresh opportunities for a new generation to rediscover ways in which people from our communities played a key role in the war.

Use your basil bounty for Rita’s freezer pesto

Sometimes my enthusiasm in spring for planting herbs and produce goes so out of bounds that when it’s time for harvesting, I get overwhelmed. I went out early to pick tomatoes and happened to see what I thought were a few Rita green Heikenfeld beans RITA’S KITCHEN ready to pick. Ditto for cucumbers. By the time I finished, I had a big basket of beans, almost a dozen cucumbers and more than enough squash for the neighborhood. I had also planted a row of both Iranian/lemon and sweet basil in the veggie garden. (Not that I didn’t already have enough in the herb garden!) The basils were just starting to flower so I had to harvest them, as well. The veggies will keep for a couple of days but I wanted to work with the basil then, so I made my latest version of freezer pesto.

Rita’s freezer pesto

There’s a huge interest in making pesto, so I could probably devote a whole column to it. Read-

⁄2 to 3⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil Generous squeeze of lemon juice


With processor’s motor running, add garlic and nuts. Add everything else and using the pulse button, pulse until just mixed, then pour into containers and freeze.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Rita’s recipe for thick pesto freezes well. Add water if using to coat pasta.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

ers want to know if nuts are essential. No, and walnuts make a good substitute for pine nuts. Should you add garlic after thawing? I add both nuts and garlic to my pesto prior to freezing, but some food gurus say leave them out since, in their opinion, these items turn strong in the freezer. I use my food processor, but you could use a blender or make this by hand. This is a thicker pesto that freezes well. Add more oil after thawing, if you like. Some-

times I’ll add a bit of water to pesto if I’m using it to coat pasta. Check out my blog to see some favorite recipes using pesto. 1 to 11⁄2 teaspoons garlic, minced 1 ⁄4 cup pine nuts, toasted if desired 1 ⁄2 stick unsalted butter (optional, but good) Generous handful parsley leaves 4 generous cups basil leaves, packed 11⁄4 cups Parmesan cheese or to taste 1 ⁄4 cup Romano cheese

Why does my pesto turn dark? Basil oxidizes rapidly when leaves are cut up either too finely and/or exposed to air, so use the pulse button to mix. That also alleviates heat while processing, which can turn the basil dark. Try these tips to keep your pesto green. » Blanch the basil leaves to keep them green. » Add parsley and lemon juice to keep the green color. » Pour a thin film of oil over the top before storing may keep enough air out, as well. And sometimes, even if you take those steps, it still may get dark. Don’t worry, it’s a visual thing and doesn’t affect the quality or taste.

learn a lot through their experiences, and we are grateful that we can continue to offer these opportunities to them.” Sara Vice, a psychology major and student coop at HCJFS in the communications department, has had opportunities to shadow caseworkers and visit the Mayerson Center for Safe and Healthy Children at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital through her position. “My co-op has been a great learning experience and has prepared me for my future in the field of psychology,” she said. “The knowledge that I’ve gained goes beyond sitting in a classroom because I’m able to do something that I’m passionate about.” Cooperative education allows students to learn in an actual career setting, applying their interests and learning about career options. Nearly one-third of students who participate in cooperative education at the Mount accept fulltime employment with

Stay hydrated

I worry about the younger and older contingent in our Community Press family. They’re the ones who may not hydrate properly, so keep an eye out. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice to water for an extra boost for your immune system and to make drinking water more appealing. Make it a fun drink by adding fresh mint, stevia or other sweetener to taste.

Grant allows Mount to offer co-op positions The College of Mount St. Joseph will continue to offer five cooperative education positions each semester during the upcoming school year with Hamilton County Job and Family Services funded by a grant of $84,000 from The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation. The grant from The Haile/U.S. Bank Foundation provides funding for Mount students to have a cooperative education, or co-op, work experience at Hamilton County Job and Family Services (HCJFS). As a result, the agency gains the benefits of having college student employees at no cost while the students gain valuable career experience. “The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile/U.S. Bank Foundation has been very generous in granting us the ability to offer these co-op positions for a third year,” said Jen Franchak, director of the Career and Experiential Education Center at the Mount. “The students

College Hill to be site of 2014 CitiRama By Monica Boylson

College Hill — The Cincinnati neighborhood has been chosen as the site for the 2014 CitiRama, an urban housing development project between the Homebuilders Association of Greater Cincinnati and the city. The 7.5-acre plot behind Renew Community Church, 2129 W. North Bend Road, will be developed with 24 homes each with average lot size of 6,500 square feet, developer T. J. Ackermann said. The site is being developed by Ackermann and the Meierjohan Building Group. Builders who have already committed to constructing homes at the site are Drees Homes, Maronda Homes, Meierjohan Building Group and Inverness Homes. Ackermann said College Hill was chosen out of four neighborhoods for the 12th annual housing

development project, and the College Hill Forum approved the project during a board meeting June 25. “The membership was very excited at the prospect of CitiRama coming to College Hill in 2014,” forum president Phyllis Slusher said. “The developer wanted a vote of support for the project and it was virtually unanimous.” Other neighborhoods that were considered were California, Mount Washington and Over-theRhine. Mike Hoffmaster, 2014 CitiRama chairman and regional president of Maronda Homes, said the home show will be September 2014 and there will be five to seven homes available for tours. He said the show usually runs 10 days and brings more than 6,000 people to see the development. He said that there will be builders and sales personnel at the show to answer questions and run

applications for the homes that are already built or give people the opportunity to build their unique home on one of the lots. “Most builders are affiliated with lenders,” Hoffmaster said. “If somebody comes in and says, ‘I’m interested but I’m not sure if I qualify,’ they can run a mini application and the lender can run a quick preliminary check in 30 to 45 minutes.” He added that in past

years all the homes have been sold before the show started. “Last year we had our whole show sold within two-and-a-half hours of the show starting,” he said. Ackermann said the average home price will be from $160,000 to $240,000. The new homes will have a 10-year tax abatement; LEED-certified homes that are built with sustainable and ecofriendly, recycled prod-

ucts will have a 15-year tax abatement. Homeowners would only be responsible for paying taxes on the land not the home. “We look at this as a win-win situation for everyone,” he said. “The development of market rate housing should boost the value of the homes in that area. It will bring 24 new families into the community and will raise the awareness of that community throughout greater Cincinnati.”

Slusher said College Hill is on board with the project. “I can’t think of any reason not to be thrilled at what a great event this can be for the neighborhood,” she said. “The community has really embraced it and are very supportive.” Ackermann said the installation of roads and utilities at the lots is expected to start in January and continue through April. Builders are expected to start home construction in May with many homes completed by mid-September. Once home construction starts, people can contact the builders and purchase the homes before CitiRama starts. Hoffmaster said that when construction starts there will be flyers and information at the site of all the companies building there. “This is a very exciting thing,” Slusher said. “This is really going to complement our community.”
