Put 20 candles on the cake and get ready for a Taste of Colerain blowout. The Meijer Taste of Colerain celebrates 20 years, and organizers hope to throw a party worthy of the occasion. Everything quintessential about the taste is in the mix this year: lots of food options, local entertainment and family fun. The Taste will be from 5 to 11 p.m. Friday, Aug. 7; 4 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 8; and 3 to 9 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 9. The food fest takes place at the Colerain Township Government Complex, 4200 Springdale Road. There is free parking, free shuttle service, free children’s activities, free entertainment and free hourly drawings. Tawanna Moulter, administrative assistant for the Colerain Township Parks and Services Department, says the Taste has a lot of restaurants. Old favorites and newbies have signed up and she says the menu has a lot of variety. “The food selection is excellent this year,” she said. “Really, the menu covers every taste.”

Handicapped parking will be located at the front lot of the Colerain Township Senior and Community Center, adjacent to the event site, at 4300 Springdale Road. Workers will be on hand to give additional assistance as needed.


Great weather meant great crowds for last year’s Taste of Colerain. This year’s food fest is Aug. 7-9 at the Colerain Township Government Complex, 4200 Springdale Road. In addition to food and beverages, there is also a charity auction thanks to local auctioneer Chester Dowers that runs throughout the Taste of Colerain. To celebrate the anniversary, the carnival rides aren’t just for kids this year. Kissel Brothers will bring big rides and kiddie rides and games. There will also be pony rides and the free children's activities in the Children's Tasteland include face painting, crafts, temporary tattoos and games. A variety of local bands will provide entertainment. On Friday, groove to the wacky Cajun voodoo of Robin Lacey and DeZydeco as they take the stage from 6:30 to 11 p.m.

White Oak resident Darren Flynn said residents against Mercy Health Partners’ plans for a Monfort Heights hospital and medical office will continue their fight. After reviewing a concept plan presented by Anchor Properties at their meeting Monday, July 27, the Green Township Trustees voted unanimously to recommend the county approve a zone change on the proposed site’s 70 acres to planned office. The site is off North Bend and Boomer roads near Interstate 74. “We’re very disappointed in the fact the trustees have dismissed the voice of nearly 1,300 township constituents,” said Flynn, referring to the residents who signed the opposition group’s petition against the hospital. “But we haven’t given up.” He said members of the Concerned Citizens in Opposition to the Proposed Mercy Hospital Site plan to attend the Hamilton County Regional Planning Commission’s meeting when the commission reviews the zoning case at 1 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 6, at the county administration building. The concept plan for the $200

Flynn Linnenberg million hospital development included a cluster of medical offices on the western portion of the site, a two-acre buffer between the offices and St. Ignatius, 100 to 450 feet of buffering along most of the site’s southern border and an up to sixstory hospital on the eastern edge of the property. The section of Boomer Road adjacent to St. Ignatius would be rerouted south and west, and become a hospital access road. The old road would then become a private drive for St. Ignatius. Improvements already planned for North Bend Road, and improvements planned by Mercy, would improve traffic flow. Trustee David Linnenberg said he read every name on the petition submitted by the opposition group, as well as every page of the 32page report opposition organizer Mark Broering Sr. turned in expressing his concerns. “I’ve learned a lot about this

Bryan Snyder, development services administrator for the Hamilton County Planning and Zoning Department, said there are three more hearings scheduled for Mercy Health Partners’ request for a zoning amendment. The Hamilton County Regional Planning Commission will review the case Thursday, Aug. 6, and then make a recommendation to the Hamilton County Rural Zoning Commission whether to approve or deny the request. The rural zoning commission will review the issue at a meeting Thursday, Aug. 20. “The point of the regional planning commission’s review of the case is to compare the zone change request to any adopted land use plans in the county, which in this case would be the Green Township Land Use Plan,” Snyder said. Based on the concept plan and testimony heard at the Aug. 6 meeting, he said the planning commission will make a recommendation to the zoning commission whether a zone change is appropriate. He said after the rural zoning commission takes a stance on the issue, a public hearing before the Hamilton County Board of County Commissioners will be scheduled. The board of county commissioners has the final say in whether to approve or deny the zone change to allow the development. Snyder said the earliest the county commissioners would hear the case is the third week of September. issue,” Linnenberg said, addressing Broering and the opposition. “I am a supporter of this plan, but trust me your input has made dramatic changes.” Linnenberg said the relocation of Boomer Road and the two-acre buffer between the development and St. Ignatius were not in the original plan. He said a second entrance to Kleeman Road was also eliminated from the original plan because of concerns raised by the opposition. “We listen and that’s why a lot

of this is different than the original plan,” he said. “In the future we are going to want to hear your input and we are going to want to make some changes. This is not the final plan.” Flynn said the opposition group still intends to place a referendum issue on the ballot if the proposal is ultimately approved by the county. “Let’s allow the voters decide if something of this magnitude should be built here,” he said.

Rumpke sells compost farm to park district By Jennie Key The Rumpke Consolidated Companies has sold its former NPK Compost Farm on East Miami River Road to the Hamilton County Park District. The Hamilton County Park District completed the purchase of the 184-acre parcel July 30. It includes a connection to the park district's existing Oak Glen Nature Preserve on East Miami River Road. Rumpke communication

manager Amanda Pratt said the composting facility moved its operations to the Rumpke Sanitary Landfill on Struble Road in 2005. The total cost for the purchase was $1.1 million. The park district is receiving a Clean Ohio Conservation Program grant of $917,751 which also includes funds to begin a habitat restoration project on the heavily forested hillside tract. Hamilton County parks district spokeswoman Joy Landry said the property acquisition was especially

The total cost for the purchase was $1.1 million. exciting for the parks district because it is adjacent to the Oak Glen property. “It gives us a nice continuity there,� she said. In a press release, Hamilton County Parks District Planning Director Ross Hamre said park commissioners place a strong emphasis on seeking appropriate greenspace purchases as part of the district’s commitment to Hamilton County residents. “This is a significant land acquisition and we're grateful to our corporate partner Rumpke,� he said. Landry said the park district has enjoyed a “green� collaborative with Rumpke for several years, working together to preserve a total of 361 acres.

“We have had a nice relationship as far as property acquisition is concerned,� she said. In April of 2004, Rumpke contributed $306,000 that helped the park district acquire 136 acres, another Clean Ohio Fund purchase. In May of 2004, Rumpke donated 41 acres to the park district. Landry said the total greenspace preserved and protected by the Hamilton County Park District is 16,248 acres. “The agreement is winwin for Rumpke, the park district and the community as a whole. Most importantly, through this partnership Rumpke and the Park District have secured more greenspace in our hometown community,� Pratt said. “We are proud to join forces with the Park District once again to ensure preservation and park lands for Colerain Township and Hamilton County.�

By Jennie Key Good People Doing Good Things. The motto of the GoodTimers Foundation tells you this is more than a group of people looking for fun. They like fun. In fact, the group started to support a Sunday football team. The group built, owned and maintained a softball/soccer complex called GoodTimers Grove – now Riverfront West – in Miamitown. But since the Sept. 11 attack in 2001, the group has raised almost a quarter of a million dollars for local police and community organizations and causes through poker runs and other events. In November, GoodTimers presented the Colerain Township Citizens Police Academy with a $2,000 donation. Colerain Township Police Chief Dan Meloy said the group has been generous, donating to the department since 2002. Last year, GoodTimers added the Freedom Flight organization to its beneficiaries. This group organizes flights and visits to the World War II memorial in Washington, D.C. The annual Freedom Ride sponsored by the GoodTimers is set for Sunday, Aug. 16. Organizers hope about 300 riders will participate.

Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the ride leaves at 11 a.m. from the Gailey VFW Hall, 8326 Brownsway Lane. Tom Scherz, Colerain Township, has been part of the group since the 1960s. He says there will be coffee and breakfast sandwiches available for early birds and there will be Sunday Morning Blues with Sonny Moorman. The ride travels back roads from the Gailey VFW to a VFW Hall in Trenton and back to Gailey. Scherz said motorcycle officers from Hamilton County, Colerain Township and Mount Healthy help plan the event. “We are concerned about safety,� he said. When the riders return to the Gailey VFW hall, there will be prizes for the best poker hand and live music from Bob Cushing, Dangerous Jim and the Slims, and Crash Landing. The party will also include food, beer, door prizes and entertainment. The cost is $15 for one rider and $5 for a passenger. If you just want to party, admission is $5. Scherz says the event is rain or shine. If it rains, the party moves indoors, he said. For more information and directions, visit

Blood drive honors fallen firefighter The Delhi Township fire station at 697 Neeb Road will serve as the location for the second annual Brian Schira Memorial Blood Drive sponsored by the Delhi Civic Association from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.. Saturday, Aug. 8. Giving the gift of life is not only a fitting tribute to Delhi and Colerain township Firefighter Schira, who lost his life in the line of duty, but also an excellent opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. You must be at least 17 years old, in good health weigh at least 110 pounds and bring identification to donate blood. It is recommended that donors eat a good meal and drink plenty

of water or non-caffeinated fluids within four hours before donating. There are also several benefits of being a blood donor. Each donor is given a miniphysical examination including a check of the donor’s heart rate, blood pressure, pulse, iron levels and temperature. A nonfasting, total serum cholesterol level screening test is also performed. Donating blood is safe and easy. The entire donation process, including registration, examinations, blood draw, and a snack of juice and cookies is simple, efficient and lasts about 45 minutes.

Judge closes Club Octane until further notice By Kurt Backscheider

Green Township police officers are breathing a sigh

of relief over a ruling by Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Beth A. Myers. At a hearing Tuesday, July 28, Myers granted the town-

ship a permanent injunction against Club Octane, a teen club on Colerain Avenue that has been a magnet for police runs since it opened in April.

submit a teen club permit application and comply with the ordinance, the trustees authorized township law director Frank Hyle to request an injunction against the club. Myers granted a temporary restraining order on July 16, ordering the club to close for 14 days. The judge’s ruling on July 28 closes Club Octane until further notice. Trustee Chairwoman Tracy Winkler said home rule gave the township the opportunity to have a say in how the club operated, and

because the business did not adhere to the teen club ordinance, the township pursued the permanent injunction closing the club. “I hope the residents realize we acted as quickly as we possibly could,� she said. “We are watching out for you.� A phone message left for the club’s owner seeking comment was not returned. Vetter said incidents at the club ranged from disorderly conduct and assault to reports of sexual assault and gun shots fired.

“We’re relieved,� said Green Township Police Lt. James Vetter. “We had quite a few problems up there. The problems were escalating each weekend the club was open and we thought it was just a matter of time before someone was seriously hurt.� Green Township Trustees adopted a resolution in June creating a teen club permit and licensing process in response to troubles at the club, 5915 Colerain Ave. When the club’s owner, Aaron Gray, failed twice to

Bond was set at $55,000 for a Colerain Township father arrested and charged July 27 with driving drunk and crashing his car, injuring his 2-year-old son. Brandon C. Henry, 28, of Colerain Township, was charged with aggravated vehicular assault, child endangering and driving with a suspended license. His son underwent surgery for a lacerated liver at

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, authorities wrote in court records. The toddler, who was not strapped into a car seat as required by law, was injured when his father lost control of a 2007 Honda Civic in the 9200 block of Pippin Road, court records show. The Honda hit the right side of a Pontiac Grand Am traveling northbound on Pippin Road.

When Henry was taken to University Hospital after the crash, he refused to take a blood test to measure his intoxication level, records state. Henry was arraigned July 29, and 10 percent of the bond was posted. The report of the Hamilton County Grand Jury on this case is schedu led for Friday, Aug. 7.

Community day

Nine volunteers spent four hours painting a colorful United States map at Monfort Heights Elementary during Cincinnati Bell’s Day in the Community. Pictured from left to right are Cincinnati Bell employees Steve Smith, Stacie Dirr, Emily Gutfreund and Fred Hunt, president of the Northwest Local School District Board of Education.



Jaylin Stephens, Hannah Hayden and Brittany Acree, all ninth-graders at Colerain High School, sit in front of the shell of the extended office under construction at the high school. Visitors to the building will enter into the extended office area, rather than having access to the full lobby of the building.

Schools finishing summer projects By Jennie Key For students, August means new shoes and bookbags and a scramble to wring the last drops of vacation from the summer. For school districts, it means a scramble to put the finishing touches on a summer of refurbishing, renovations and repairs as they get ready to welcome students back to the buildings. Daniel Lawler, interim administrator of business services for the Northwest Local School District, says it has been a busy and productive summer. The district has spent almost $594,000 this summer, fixing

roofs, blacktopping parking lots and making a number of renovations and repairs. Blacktop work was completed at Colerain and Northwest high schools in the student lots, and at Pleasant Run and Colerain middle schools. The district also replaced concrete stairs between the lower and upper lots in the front of the building at Colerain High. Roof work was done at Monfort Heights Elementary to fix a drainage problem, and sections of the roof were replaced at Pleasant Run Middle and Northwest High. Colerain High School’s entry way got a makeover, as well. Lawler said the district replaced the front door, which were original

to the building. The front office has been moved, so visitors enter the office, not the lobby. “It improves security in the building,” Lawler said. Other projects this summer included a restroom renovation to the first floor rear hall restrooms and painting in almost every building. Superintendent Rick Glatfelter said the district is trying to focus projects on buildings that are set for renovation under its facilities plan for the Ohio Schools Facility Commission, so the district could possibly receive partial reimbursement from the state at a later time.

It had a special significance for her, as she attended Little Bud Preschool for two years prior to attending Houston Elementary School. She said her project involved improving adding handrails to a bridge leading to a nature trail for the “Little Buds� to hold onto as they cross over the bridge.

The final installation of Green Township’s Bicentennial Summer Concert Series also takes place this month. The free concert gets started at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 15, at Kuliga Park, 6717 Bridgetown Road. A double-header, the concert features performances by the Rusty Griswolds and the Sullivan Janszen Band. Picnic baskets are welcome, but no alcohol may be brought into the park. Food and beer will be sold by local organizations. Parking is available at Oak Hills High School, J.F. Dulles Elementary and Our Lady of Visitation, with free shuttle service provided. Faith Fellowship Church will also allow parking, but with no shuttle service. Kuliga Park is permit only parking. A cornhole tournament is scheduled to take place prior to the concert. Call the concert hotline at 598-3089 for more information. For details about the cornhole tournament, call the township administration office at 574-4848. For instance, he said he’ll tell the rags-to-riches story of James Robb, for whom Robb Avenue in Cheviot is named. And he will talk about the men who formed the Green Township Anti-Thieving Association, which was a vigilante group who went after thieves who stole animals from local farmers. Ruffing said the program also covers Willie Haas, a 16year-old boy who committed a heinous crime in 1896 on a farm near present-day Sidney Road; and Alexander Long, who was a township teacher who became a U.S. Congressman and was nearly thrown out of Congress for opposing the Civil War. Ruffing said an 1837 outrage in Cheviot is also discussed, as are Jacob Johnson’s skunk scheme, Charles Reemelin’s life as a renaissance man and Michael Werk’s wine-making exploits. “Most people have never heard of these early pioneers,� Ruffing said. Sarah Connatser, branch manager of the Green Township Branch Library, said the program is the second in a three-part bicentennial series being hosted by the libraries. She said both branches will host the third program focusing on the township’s history near the end of September.

Mossman a biking wonder By Tony Meale

Hannah Mossman didn’t lose her training wheels until she was 7. Now she is making up for lost time. “As soon as I took the training wheels off, she could ride so well,” said Jerry, Mossman’s father. “She was always a natural on a bike.” Now 14, Mossman, who will be a freshman at Northwest High School, has accrued a host of accolades as a competitive cyclist. She finished second in the 1314 age group at the Cyclocross National Championships in Kansas City in 2007, she won a state title in the 13-14 division in 2008 and 2009, and she finished fifth in a 40-mile race in the women’s division this past year at state, which is held in Miamisburg. In late July, she placed fourth at the U.S. Nationals in Bent, Ore. “The neatest thing for me is to

tucked in and behind (other riders) until it’s time (to make a move). She’s developed an understanding of the sport and uses more strategy. I’ve really seen her grow up and get stronger.” A member of Project Velo Racing, Mossman enjoys the competitive outlet that cycling offers. “You have to plan for the entire race,” she said. “You always have to be ready for someone to attack.” Mossman, who credits her teammates for pushing her to excel – specifically Michelle Morris – hopes to run cross country and play volleyball for the Knights. “I’m so proud of Hannah’s accomplishments,” said Sandy, Mossman’s mother. “From the time she was very young, (Jerry and I) knew she had great potential as an athlete. She’s very fortunate to be surrounded by outstanding coaches at school, club volleyball and Project Velo racing.” Sandy, who taught Mossman

Wanninger, Reynolds forge bond By Tony Meale

Ashley Wanninger and Kathryn Reynolds aren’t in the same grade, don’t go to the same school and don’t even play in the same conference. But they’re still teammates. Wanninger, who will be a senior at Colerain, and Reynolds, who will be a junior at Mount Notre Dame, are spending their second summer together as members of the Cincinnati’s Finest Lady Ballers, one of the premier club basketball teams in the area. “We both went to the same MND camp when we were younger, and we’ve been good friends since last year,” Wanninger said. The similarities between the two players are striking. Both are deadly accurate long-distance shooters, and both bring leadership and a winning attitude to the table. “We’re practically the same person out there,” Wanninger joked. Despite the parallels in playing style, Wanninger and Reynolds haven’t clashed; they respect one another and relish the opportunity to play on the same team. “That’s probably my favorite time – when we get to play together,” Reynolds said. “You’re not going to find a better kid with more class than Ashley.” Interestingly enough, Wanninger, who averaged a team-high 15.7 points for the Car-

dinals last year, strongly considering attending MND when she was an eighth-grader at St. James in White Oak. Her role model growing up was Mel Thomas, who was an All-American at MND and played for Geno Auriemma at Connecticut. “I wanted to follow in her footsteps,” Wanninger said. But in the end, she chose the Cardinals over the Cougars. “I give her a hard time sometimes,” Reynolds said, laughing. “But I’m happy we get to play together in the summer. I know she loves Colerain.” As members of Cincinnati’s Finest, Wanninger and Reynolds have traveled throughout the country – from Chicago to Washington, D.C., to Murfreesboro, Tenn. – and have faced some of the top players in the Midwest and beyond. Earlier this year, they won a local tournament at Lakota West. “It’s much more competitive than the high school season,” Wanninger said. “The coaches push me a lot harder than last year, especially since they know I’m playing at the next level.” Wanninger has verbally committed to Xavier. “I wasn’t even considering XU, and then I went to the campus and was blown away,” she said. “It’s a small school with a big personality.” Of course, CF prepares its players for bas-

Cincy’s top softball teams face off at Rumpke By Mark Chalifoux

Rain hampered the start of the 57th annual Cincinnati Metro Softball Tournament but even that won’t slow what has grown into one of the biggest events of its kind in the nation. “They make it work,” said Jonathan Kissell, Rumpke’s senior communication coordinator. The Met is played mainly at Rumpke Park in Crosby Township, with finals concluding Wednesday,

Aug. 12. “With so many teams it takes a lot of coordination to put it together. To make it happen with so many teams involved seems overwhelming but it’s impressive how well a tournament of this size can run.” Kissell said the grounds crew can be found at the park late into the night and that games are played most weeknights until midnight and later if there are weather delays.

There are 261 teams in the Met this year, down 10 teams from 2008. Kissell said they were expecting fewer teams due to the economy but was happy with the number of teams. “It’s just a huge event to a lot of people. Teams prepare all season for this event. To find out who the best of the best is and be declared a city champ. Teams take a lot of pride in it,” he said. The Met is one of the biggest tournaments of its kind in the

nation. Only local, league-sanctioned teams were allowed to qualify for entry. Players cannot form teams just to play in the tournament. One key to the tournament’s continued success, Kissell said, is the tradition. “It’s been around so long, a lot of players playing today probably watched their parents and grandparents play in the Metro,” he said. “We play sports in grade school and high school and it’s a

chance to relive those days as an adult. Players still take pride in being a champion.” Kissell, who grew up in the area and went to high school at La Salle, said the Met is popular even among spectators. “It’s only $3 for admission and kids under 12 and adults over 65 get in free. You can grab an ear of corn and a burger and watch a bunch of softball games from the sundeck. For two weeks, it’s a great place to be,” he said.

Officer avoids shooting suspect Colerain PTA sponsors dress sale ran out the side door and headed a l m o s t directly at the 34-yearold officer. A parked Hubbard vehicle separated the two men. The man ducked in front of it to hide. Hubbard, who was standing by his cruiser, walked up on the left side until the gunman came into view. Hubbard ordered him to drop his gun. The suspect stood up. He put one hand in the air while still aiming the pistol at the officer, his finger remaining on the trigger. “Drop it, drop it, drop it!” the officer ordered. The two men stood 25 feet apart. Already exposed, Hubbard said he moved away from his cruiser, gun still

drawn on the suspect, in an attempt to end the standoff. “At that point, he started walking toward me in an aggressive manner, still holding his hand in the air,” Hubbard recalled. “He closed the distance to less than 10 feet. At that point, I felt like my life was pretty much at risk, so I made the decision to deploy deadly force. I began squeezing the trigger.” That’s when the suspect gave up. The officer was able to keep his gun from firing. “I caught the hammer with my thumb and put the gun back into its safety position,” Hubbard said. “It was really close.” The suspect, identified by police as Leonard Ballard, 50, of Colerain Township, was taken into custody. He faces one count of aggravated robbery and five counts of kidnapping, said Colerain Township Public Information Officer Andrew Demeropolis,

Cincinnati News Service A Colerain Township police officer came within an instant of shooting an armed robbery suspect late Thursday in a tense face-off outside a Burger King restaurant on Colerain Avenue. That he didn’t fire, a colleague said Friday, is a testament to the officer’s restraint and experience. Colerain Township Officer David Hubbard, still a bit jittery from the whole episode, recalled what happened. He remembers swinging his police cruiser into the fast food restaurant’s parking lot about 10:15 p.m. He had been dispatched for a report of a robbery in progress. Hubbard immediately spotted a masked, hooded gunman holding at least five employees and customers at gunpoint at the front counter. The gunman spied him,

ing coverage for abortions. Voting to conJoanne tinue funding Kemmerer Planned ParentCommunity hood because it provides health Press guest care services for columnist poor women is an old canard. American taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood frees up money for promoting and providing abortions which otherwise would be needed for operational costs. There are many federally funded clinics providing health services like cancer screenings that promote abstinence, but do not do abortion. Prominent black leaders attending the 2008 NAACP convention in Cincinnati held a press conference which I attended. They included Alveda King, a niece of the Rev. Martin Luther King, who opposed abortion. Last year, UCLA pro-life students hired actors to call Planned Parenthood offices posing as donors. Outside the convention center, the crowd listened to the recording of the “donor” asking if his money could be directed to aborting black babies, and Planned Parenthood agreed! Minority women make up about 26 percent of the female population (age 15-44) in the United States, but they undergo approximately 36 percent of abortions performed in this country. Promoting teenage sex provides Planned Parenthood with customers who have sexually transmitted diseases because they fell for Planned Parenthood’s lie that using porous condoms equals safe sex. Glamorizing teen sex results in pregnancies which lead to profitable abortions. Planned Parenthood needs a growing customer base to pay its executive director’s $300,000-plus salary. Steve Driehaus voted against life, 1st District taxpayers, and our teenagers’ virtue. Joanne Kemmerer, formerly of Mount Airy, was a 2000 Republican candidate for Ohio state legislature.

Like most, I am concerned and confused how it will be subsidized. I also fear that the USA will have similar problems to Canada i.e. not enough doctors and long waits for surgeries. I assume this plan will be only for legal US citizens. I can only hope that all government workers (including Congress) are on this plan along with Social Security and Medicare. It seems odd that these plans are good enough for everyone except those voting them into place. Go Figure!” T.D.T. “I oppose this plan because of the high cost, my distrust of the federal government’s ability to handle any program efficiently, and I worry the time to get an

against taxpayers My congressman, Steve Driehaus, threw away an opportunity to do good and thwart evil. A cartoonist could draw him with his right hand reaching out to pro-life west-side Catholic Democrats while keeping his left hand extended to pro-aborts Assistant Majority Leader U.S. Rep. Steny Hoyer and U.S. Rep. Barney Frank who came to Cincinnati last year to campaign for him. U.S. Rep. Mike Pence (R–Ind.) proposed an amendment to the Labor Health and Human Services appropriations act in the full House of Representatives on July 24. The Pence amendment called for ending taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood, the largest recipient of federal funds under Title X. Planned Parenthood received $350 million in 2008. The amendment failed 183 to 244. Driehaus’ nay vote supports extorting our tax dollars for a business that performs the most abortions on babies in the womb in the country, targets black babies, is being investigated for violating state sexual assault and child abuse reporting laws in Alabama, California, Indiana, Ohio and Tennessee, and encourages teenage sexual promiscuity on its Teen Talk Web site. How can Steve Driehaus campaign as a pro-life Democrat, but then expect us to pay for the “choice” of death? Thomas Jefferson said, “To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves is sinful and tyrannical.” Driehaus also voted for the Foreign Relations Reauthorization Act, HR 2410, on June 10, which established a global women’s issues office to promote abortion overseas as a principle of U.S. foreign policy. He did join some Democrat colleagues telling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that abortion should not be included in a government health care bill. That cannot work, however, unless there is explicit language exclud-

Information on House Bill 1 I know that these are not the best of times; I can only hope that these are the worst of times. Unfortunately, I have my doubts. We all share the same hope that here in the Northwest Local School District, across the state of Ohio and around the country, the economic outlook will improve for our families and our businesses. With concern and uncertainty about our personal situations gripping so many of us, this is probably not the best time to talk about school finance. However, we do have an obligation to provide information to our school community about the issues facing our district. The new state budget will cause changes in every district in the state, including Northwest. The state budget bill, House Bill 1, is dual purpose legislation for education. While it does establish the budget for the next biennium, it is also the start of an educational reform process that now appears to be scheduled for at least the next 10 years. The district leadership team, along with the rest of state, has been analyzing HB 1. Although it is early in the game, we do have some bullet points we think are important information for our

community members: • HB 1 is a very long and complex piece of legislation. It will take several weeks or even months of analyRick sis to fully underGlatfelter stand the full impact on educaCommunity tion in Ohio. Press guest • “Correction” columnist legislation will probably be passed in the near future that will change some of the provisions that we are currently analyzing. • The legislature and the governor kept their pledges to preserve as much of the education budget as possible. State support to local school districts, partially because of the federal stimulus money, was not cut as deeply as most other parts of the state budget. • The preliminary budget data shows that Northwest received $28.1 million in state aid for the 2008-09 school-year. We are projected to receive $29.9 million in state aid for next school year. However only $26.5 million are state dollars. Approximately $2.1 million of next year’s money is

Title I and IDEA federal stimulus funds that come with restrictions on use. Another $1.3 million will be federal stimulus stabilization money. Therefore, Northwest will actually receive approximately $1.6 million less in Ohio funds this year than last year. We are very thankful for the extra federal money we will receive during this biennium, and we will use it wisely to benefit as many students as possible. But we are very concerned about what will happen when there is no more stimulus money. This state budget, with the stimulus money, buys two years for economic recovery; it does not provide any long-term funding solutions for the Northwest school district. We will continue to review our operations to find ways to contain cost. The passage of last year’s levy and our expenditure reductions have created a modest cash reserve for Northwest. We will preserve as much of the cash balance as possible as a hedge against future funding cuts. Analyzing the financial and educational effects of HB 1 will be a work in progress. We will keep you informed as we receive new information. Rick Glatfelter is superintendent of the Northwest Local School District.

Jackson’s Green Twp.’s legacy lives on This is last in a series on the history of Green Township. In a later letter, Isaac Jackson told his wife he was doing well and had an indentured child living with him. Poor parents indentured their Betty Kamuf children to someone who could Community properly care for Press guest them. They columnist stayed with the family and worked until they reached adulthood. He said she was rather pretty, but had too much nose. She had made his life more bearable because she knew how to do many things in this wilderness. In 1815, the war was over and speculation started. In 1818, the boom collapsed when the local branch of the United States Bank called in its loans. Another bank, The Miami Exporting Co., closed its doors and rioting broke out. A depression set in, and courts were deluged with debt collector’s law suits. Isaac Jackson was immersed in the events because he had been elected County Commissioner and served from 1818-1825. He was an appraiser, guardian, and dealt with estates and probate matters. As a commissioner, he fought for and against the building of new roads. Isaac Jackson died on Oct. 20, 1849, and his wife Deborah in 1854. Early Green Township historian Dr. Reese Kendall, in his Pioneer Annals of Green Township recorded Isaac Jackson’s life. He was a Philadelphia pioneer who settled in Green Township 1813. He lived on the Muddy Creek in a large two-story log-hewed house and had a large frame barn. There was a timber lot called Jackson’s Hobby that contained forest and fruit trees.


This is a map of Green Township in 1869.

Isaac H. Jackson kept a record of the weather three times each day for the years between 1813 and 1842, and left his journal with his son Sidney. Sidney Jackson was never politically active like his father, he was interested in horticulture. In 1830, Sidney started a nursery and floral business on 30 acres of his 80-acre inheritance. Eventually it became the oldest such business in the United States. He put out catalogues advertising his merchandise. In 1842, his catalogue said that orders can be left with J & C Walker agents on Fifth Street between Main and Walnut. In 1845, the catalogue listed green-house plants, ornamental trees and shrubs, roses, and herbaceous plants. The general agent was Ely Campbell Seedman,

No 23 Lower Market St. More than likely this location was somewhere along the Cincinnati Whitewater Canal which opened in 1843, and operated between Indiana and Cincinnati. In 1852, he was offering a discount for large orders. He was closing his canal location because the canal had become unreliable. He moved his green houses and nursery back to the original location on Sidney Road. Sidney Jackson married Elizabeth Hutchinson of Harrison and they had five children, but only two lived to adulthood. His daughter Julia married Dwight Herrick in 1874, and he continued the nursery until his retirement around 1920.

Camp lets kids horse around By Jennie Key

Maddie Lees, a volunteer counselor at the camp, helps adjust a stirrup for Isabel Lynch, White Oak, as she sits on Scarlet.

It’s not all riding around. Someone has to muck out the stalls. Katie Witzgall, 11, Taylor Campbell, 11 and Allie Zisko, 10, were happy to do it.

The dust filters through pale rays of sunshine in the barn at Cohron’s Chestnut Acres in Colerain Township, as campers from McAuley High School’s horse camp trot around the barn floor astride Scarlet, Winter Hawk and Irish Legacy. One student prefers not to trot. “That’s OK, you can walk,” says stable manager Heather Williams, who is coordinating the program at the stable. “It’s horse camp. It’s supposed to be fun.” Most of it is, if you ask the campers. They even muck out the stalls with enthusiasm. The stable, owned by McAuley alumna Dawn Budke Cohron and her husband Greg, has opened its doors to four weeks of day campers from McAuley this summer. The two-hour camp sessions are jam packed with horse-lover activities. The camp is geared to students ages 8 and up. Campers learn how to groom a horse, feed and care for it, tack up and ride in the English style. Williams is helped out by the high school students who take riding lessons at the stable. She says riding horses can help students build their self-confidence and gives the campers a feeling of accomplishment as their skills improve. Williams says students move at the pace with which they are comfortable: walk or trot.

Pooka and Allie Zisko, 10, a student at Our Lady of Victory School, share a moment during grooming.

Winter Hawk watches with a baleful eye as she walks the barn floor with Samantha Dinan, 8, astride and eager to learn the ropes of horseback riding. One student wants to canter. “Not yet,” Williams says with a smile. She says most had never been around horses when they started camp, but maybe next year the stable may add a more advanced camp for students with a little experience. “For some campers, the size of the horse can be intimidating,” Williams said. “They are nervous at the beginning, but by the end of the week, they feel comfort-

Considering the surprises of life “What makes chance into synchronicity is the consciousness in us of the vaster design that is unfolding. Chance happens to us; synchronicity happens in us.” Those more spiritually oriented may speak of it as grace. From the vantage point of hindsight we look back in our lives and believe we see the providence of God working subtly. Though our actions were completely free and spontaneous, and there was no coercion or auto-suggestion, these few unexplainable events happened and worked to our benefit. It’s been said, “A coincidence is a minor miracle in which God wishes to remain anonymous.” The late psychiatrist M. Scott Peck wrote, “I’ve become more and more impressed by the frequency of statistically highly improbable events. In their improbability, I gradually began to see the fingerprints

of God. On the basis of such events in my own life and in the lives of my patients. “I know that grace is real. ...We who are properly skeptical and scientificminded may be inclined to dismiss this force since we can’t touch it and have no decent way to measure it. Yet it exists. It is real.” Another professional, psycho-therapist Robert A. Johnson, refers to grace as “slender threads” touching our lives: “The possibility of the slender threads operating at all times is so staggering that most of us can’t bear it. ...It is probably true that we live in a universe with more meaning in it than we can comprehend or even tolerate. “Life is not meaningless; it is overflowing with meaning, pattern and connections.” Even in times of trouble or turmoil, hope says surprises can happen.

The 154th Hamilton County Fair is only days away and has more to offer than ever before. The fair will be open Tuesday, Aug. 11, through Saturday, Aug. 15, at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds on Vine Street in Carthage. Hours will be 311 p.m., Wednesday through Friday, and from 11 a.m.- 11 p.m. on Saturday. This year, there several are new attractions. “I don’t remember the last time we had a parade,” said secretary manager and coordinator of the fair Dick Ingle, who lives in White Oak. “We’ve had (parades) on the grounds but not out on Vine Street.”

The parade will being at 3 p.m. Tuesday, with participants gathering along Fairpark Avenue, one block west of Vine Street. A tractor pull, scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 11, is a first-time event for the fair as well. “It’s very noisy and it’s pretty exciting,” said Ingle. There will be singing groups and musical acts each afternoon and evening. Rides will run from 5-11 p.m. and there will be an $8 entry fee per person, but children 2 years and younger may enter for free. Ingle said there are going to be more rides than last year, and the concessions have improved as well. “We’ll have the fair food but we’ll also have things like chicken on a stick and steak on a stick,” he said.

The food will be as good as home cooking, but the rides are expected to be the biggest draw this year, said Ingle. “They are beautiful rides,” he said. “They are well maintained, well painted and just really, really nice.” One thing that sets the Hamilton County Fair apart from others is that it is more urban than most other fairs, said Ingle.

an unexpected happy occurrence, or, as Webster defines it, “making desirable discoveries by accident.” Others might say that all such unexpected events, no matter how coincidentally bizarre, are just “blind fate.” We might even feel childish or superstitious to see them as anything more – though we sense them as otherwise. Causality is inadequate to explain such phenomena. But we’re not being weird in sensing there may be more to it. In the well-respected field of Jungian psychology, however, such uncaused but amazingly meaningful and spontaneous occurrences are expressed by another term – synchronicity. Jung called synchronicity “a non-causal but meaningful relationship between physical and psychic events … a special instance of acausal orderedness.” Dr. David Richo says,

Have you ever stopped spontaneously at a gas station, talked with a stranger at the next pump, and left with a great job offer? Did the university you chose for educational purposes introduce you to your spouse? Did you lose track of the wisest schoolteacher you ever had, wish you could have her advice now, and a week later in a crowded mall see her again? Have you ever unexpectedly met a physician who soon proved vital for your health? Many occurrences in our lives seem accidental or completely by chance. And the odds are that’s exactly what they are. But there are a few others that seem so much more to us in their impact and personal meaning. Yet the causes are undetectable. What can we call such occurrences? One melodious word is serendipity. A serendipity is

New one-day miracle for denture sufferers

Are you not eating what you want to because of difficulties with your dentures? Do they wander, shift or tilt? Are you replacing them all the time? Have you been told you don’t have enough bone for traditional dental implants?

“If you can handle visiting your dentist in the morning, having the MDI system placed in less that two hours and then going out and enjoying lunch at your favorite restaurant while you eat comfortably, talk and smile with confidence, then you’re ready for this process,” says Dr. Omeltschenko. “It’s that easy. With MDIs your denture feels secure and is held firmly in place. At about a third of the price of traditional implants, they’re extremely affordable, too,” he adds. If your dentures are not firmly placed and you would like to experience the convenience that this technology can offer, call the office of Dr. Christopher Omeltschenko today at (513) 245-2200 for a free, no-obligation consultation (a $150 value).

Needing a place for Mom or Dad to recover from surgery or a hospital stay? Caring for a parent wanting to sample senior living services? Simply in need of a vacation?

Do you find yourself…


If you said yes to any of these questions, don’t hesitate to call the dental office of Dr. Christopher Omeltschenko to discuss the Mini Dental Implant System, or MDI, which can stabilize your own denture in less than two hours.

For Jean, from Barbara Dahl, an Indian Hill Journal reader. “This is from Sardi’s New York. It’s in Mary and Vincent Price’s book ‘A Treasury of Great Recipes’ from 1965. Makes an impressive dessert and cost 85 cents at the

Meringue layers:

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Beat until stiff 4 egg whites, a pinch of salt, and 1⁄4 teaspoon cream of tartar. Gradually beat in 1 cup sugar and continue to beat until stiff and glossy. Line baking sheets with waxed paper, and on the paper trace three 8-inch diameter circles. Spread meringue evenly over circles, about 1⁄4 thick, bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until meringue is pale gold, but still pliable. Remove from oven and carefully peel waxed paper from bottom. Put on cake racks to dry.


Melt over hot water 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate pieces and 3 tablespoons water. Whip 3 cups cream until stiff. Gradually add 1⁄3 cup sugar and beat until very stiff. (I think I’d beat them together). Slice 1 pint strawberries. Place meringue layer on serving plate and spread with thin coating of chocolate. Spread whipped cream about 3⁄4 inch thick and top this with layer of strawberries. Put second layer of meringue on top, spread with chocolate, another layer of whipped cream and strawberries. Top with third layer of meringue. Frost sides smoothly with remaining whipped cream. Decorate top informally using rest of melted chocolate. Or use whole strawberries. Refrigerate two hours before serving. Serves eight.

Tips from Rita’s kitchen

Freeze blueberries, unwashed in single layer, uncovered, on a cookie sheet until frozen hard. Then pour into containers. To use, rinse just a tiny bit under cool water in a colander – don’t let thaw completely before using in baked goods.

RAVENWOOD CASTLE: A MOST UNUSUAL GETAWAY Visit a “medieval castleâ€? on a high hilltop on 115 secluded and forested acres of the most beautiful area of Southeast Ohiothe Hocking Hills! Owners Sue & Jim Maxwell are creating the most unusual guest experience of stepping back 800 years in a reconstruction of a “12th century Norman castle.â€? The Maxwells have traveled throughout England & Scotland & have always loved castles & the medieval era. Although the building is new, the couple has been collecting architectural antiques for several years. Each guest room or suite has a stained glass window, usually in the bedroom, a Victorian ďŹ replace mantel with a gas log unit, antique light ďŹ xtures and some have beautiful old doors. The wood mouldings around the door & windows & the 5 stairways are inspired by centuries old motifs from Great Britain’s stately homes & castles. Most rooms also have a French door with a balcony, private deck overlooking the forest. There are also “medievalâ€? themed cottages with ďŹ replaces and whirlpools. Ravenwood has

Ravenwood offers popular “murder mysteryâ€? weekends and also plans “medieval dinnersâ€?, getaway workshops, and other special events. Facilities are also perfect for small weddings and other festive occasions. The building has no steps into the 1st oor level - a “drawbridgeâ€? leads from the driveway to the massive front door and the ďŹ rst oor guest rms.
