For 50 years, Robert Martin has been cutting hair behind the same red and green neon sign. He’s got the same gold leather chairs. At Martin’s Barber Shop, 3035 W. Galbraith Road. You’ll find the same barber pole, somewhat weather beaten, out front. And the same phone – a black dial model – hangs on the wall of the shop. He smiles the same smile, too. And provides customers with the same service: a good hair cut. Colerain Township trustees honored Martin’s Barber Shop in July for 50 years with the business community. He’s changed locations – he used to be at the corner of Galbraith and Colerain, where the BP station now stands, near the Kroger store and the bank, and the Groesbeck Pharmacy and Bill and Bob’s Sporting Goods. He remembers when the widening of Colerain Avenue started in 1961. He moved to his current location in 1973. He has five chairs in his shop, and currently, four barbers: himself, Herbert Seitzer, Dave Bledsoe and Son T. Nguyen. Customers wait patiently. You don’t make

Some of Martin’s customers come in early. He says he gets to the shop around 6:15 a.m. “Some customers like to get a haircut on the way into work,” he said.

Luke Bourquien, 24, says he recently found a photo of himself getting a haircut at Martin’s. “I was in a booster seat crying like a baby,” he laughed. Although he now lives in Oxford, he makes the trek to Mar-

tin’s because he gets a good haircut there, he said. And he enjoys how the barbers bicker while cutting hair. “It’s fun to listen,” he said. Fellow barber Herbert Seitzer says Martin is the happiest person he knows. “He’s always got a smile,” Seitzer said. He likes talking with his customers, but says some subjects can be touchy. Politics is one of those. “What are you?” is a frequent question for Martin. “Whatever the guy in the chair is,” quipped a customer. “I just do a lot more listening than I do talking,” Martin said, flashing his grin. He figures the barbers in his shop have a lot of experience, more than 140 years combined cutting hair. “With all that, we still haven’t figured out how to grow it. Then, we’d have something,” he said. Martin, 78, said he likes cutting hair, and doesn’t see himself hanging up his clippers anytime soon. “I like the people,” he said. “You meet a lot of good ones who come in here.” So you’ll find him in his shop, 12 hours a day, six days a week, cutting hair and wearing a smile.

Mount Healthy voters say no to school levy By Jennie Key

The Mount Healthy City School District asked voters last week to approve a 7.65-mill levy that would generate an estimated $2.75 million annually. They said no. This was the only issue up for decision in the county, and only 2,440 (15 percent) of the district’s 15,991 voters went to the polls. There were 1,878 no votes and 562 yes votes, a 77 percent to 23 percent margin. Mount Healthy voters turned down requests for operating levies in November and February – more than

77 percent of the voters in the February election said no. The levy would have cost the owner of a $100,000 house about $228 per year. Mount Healthy City Handler School District Superintendent Lori Handler says the loss is very disappointing. “I don’t know what else we can do to explain our situation to our voters,” she said. Handler said the district has already cut $1.9 million from the budget for the 2011-12 school year,

including busing for high school students and 12 teaching positions. The district passed a resolution earlier this summer that allows the board to put the levy back on the ballot in November and Handler says she will recommend that the board of education follow through on that resolution. “We don’t have any choice,” she said. “We will keep cutting – we have to – but this is the way schools are funded in Ohio. “We hate having to cut these programs, we know the students benefit from them, but we have no other options.”

Some voters complained to the school district offices that polling places had been changed. Hamilton County Board of Elections Deputy Director Amy Searcy said there were changes in some polling places, and the board of elections went out of its way to notify voters. Signs were posted at former polling places directing voters to the new locations. Searcy said the board of elections also sent letters to some voters notifying them about the changes. “We are not obligated to notify voters, but we did when we could,” she said. The board of elections helped test the latest technology for processing voters using an electronic ePoll Book which replaces the need for a paper signature book at the polls. Searcy said the board of elections website at has a button “Where do I vote” that will help voters identify where their polling places are located based on their address. The website identifies the polling place, and provides a map and information about the polling place for voters.

Township to get such a well-respected and nationally recognized hospital to locate here,” said Trustee David Linnenberg. “I think it’s great.” Maura Moran, assistant vice president of real estate for Cincinnati Children’s, said the facility will feature more than 60,000-squarefeet of space and will be built on 8.3 acres off Harrison Avenue. She said the hospital conducted a thorough internal and external analysis of data to determine the scope of services to be provided at the new facility, including interviews with area physicians and families, a review of the community’s demographics and an analysis of where families go for pediatric care on the West Side. “Our ambulatory group as well as our planning department have been studying the western market for quite some time,” Moran said. The new facility will allow Children’s to serve families closer to where they live and improve access to pediatric specialty clinics. Many families on the West Side have to go to the hospital’s main campus on Burnet Avenue for specialty clinics and radiology services. The hospital’s Green Township office will help to decrease wait times and

improve scheduling throughout the main hospital. Linnenberg said Children’s will become the fourth major hospital to open a facility in Green Township. Good Samaritan has an outpatient center on Harrison Avenue, Mercy Health Partners is building a hospital off North Bend Road and The Christ Hospital is building an outpatient facility on Harrison Avenue. “It’s just a great way for our residents to get all the medical attention they need right here in the township,” Linnenberg said. Moran said the construction of the new facility is a collaborative effort among many organizations. “Children’s has selected the Cincinnati office of Turner Construction, along with the Covington office of its architecture and design partner, Moody Nolan, to lead this new building project,” she said. “Both firms offer extensive health care experience and Moody Nolan is the nation’s largest AfricanAmerican owned and operated architecture firm.” She said the hospital is working with its construction partners to develop building plans, and will work with township officials over the next few weeks to attain proper approvals and permits. Children’s is purchasing the site, which is already zoned for office use, from The Christ Hospital. Moran said Children’s plans to break ground on the project Oct. 1. She said the building is expected to open in early 2013. “We’re thrilled,” she said. “This is something we’ve been working on for a long time. We’re very excited about opening the Green Township site.”

The program claims that success rate is very high for the student who applies the curriculum and the principles taught and is faithful to the meetings.

School year ready to start for local students

By Jennie Key

Get ready, get set … go back to school. It’s almost time for teachers and students to head back to class for another year. There will be a return to routines and some changes to adapt to as a new school year begins. In the Northwest Local School District, school begins for most students on Tuesday, Aug. 30. Kindergarten begins Friday, Sept. 2. When students return, they can expect to spend more on lunch. Students in the district’s elementary schools will pay $2.35 for a plate lunch and middle and high schoolers will pay $2.60 for their plate lunch this year. Milk goes from 40 cents to 50 cents per carton. In Mount Healthy City School District, class begins for students

on Tuesday, Aug. 16. Mount Healthy High School students will see two big changes: no busing and a new principal. The board of education cut busing because of continuing budget cuts and levy failures, so only seventh and eighth-graders will get bus service. Marlon Styles Jr. is the new principal at Mount Healthy High School. Styles, most recently an assistant principal at Wyoming High School, taught math at Pleasant Run Middle School and served as assistant principal at Northwest High School in the Northwest Local School District and taught at Winton Woods Middle School before going to Wyoming. McAuley High School is also welcoming a new principal as students return to school on Wednesday, Aug. 17. Nicole Brainard, a McAuley alumna, begins her

tenure with this school year. She most recently was the principal of Archbishop Alter High School in Kettering. Immediately prior to that she was assistant principal at McAuley from 2002-2007. She was also a a science teacher and academic dean at Purcell Marian High School. A native Cincinnatian, Brainard grew up in Monfort Heights and attended St. Ignatius School. McAuley has set up a carpool webpage as free service that could potentially match McAuley families looking to share car pool rides. Individuals post their infomation and then are are responsible for all contact, communication and setting up of car pools. The carpool page is accessible from the high school website at La Salle High School begins classes Wedneday, Aug. 24. At Our Lady of Grace School,

students come back to class Monday, Aug. 22, to a new principal, Sally Hicks. She has 30 years in education, and was most recently principal at St. Ursula Villa. She says her goal is to establish and maintain a caring and positive environment where children are valued for their God-given talents and can thrive. At St. Bernard School, Principal Janie Acra welcomes students back to school Thursday, Aug. 25. At St. Ignatius School, students return to class on Tuesday, Sept. 6. School begins Wednesday, Aug. 24, for students at St. James School with a new assistant principal, Michelle Hinton. She was a junior high teacher at Our Lady of Victory School, where she served on the Leadership Team and assisted with administrative tasks while finishing her masters in administration at Xavier Universi-

ty. She has also taught high school social studies at Catholic Central High School in Springfield, Ohio. St. John the Baptist students return to the classroom on Monday, Aug. 29 with a new principal. Catie Blum, formerly principal at St. William School, takes over the helm. Northgate Mall is featuring a special weekend program to help kids get ready to go back to school. There will be sidewalk sale savings beginning Thursday, Aug. 25, through Sunday, Aug. 27, with face painting, prize giveaways in the Center Court area and a radio remote broadcast on Saturday, Aug. 26. Sunday features a rock climbing wall in the east court and a “Decorate to Keep” Lunch Sack craft Visit the Customer Service Center for details and entry forms.

La Salle XC seeks to build legacy By Nick Dudukovich


La Salle’s Marc Nie will attempt to repeat his state qualifying performance on the cross country course during the 2011 campaign.

Tradition? Yeah, the La Salle High School cross country team has it. The Lancers will use the 2011 campaign in a crusade to qualify for the state championships for the 14th time since 1995, and the 20th time in school history. With a strong core of runners leading the way, the Lancers and head coach Frank Russo, look poised to add to the program’s legacy. Five Lancers enter the fall sports season with state championship experience under their belts. Those runners include seniors Drew Michel of Dry Ridge, Marc Nie of White Oak, Matt Schroeck of White Oak, Clayton Cardinal of Lebanon and junior Jake McNamara of Mt. Healthy. Michel ran a season best time of 15 minutes, 56 seconds during last fall’s Greater Catholic League meet and placed 9th at districts. Michel went on to place 74th at state.

Nie and Schroeck also competed at the 2010 state meet, while McNamara and Cardinal ran at in the championships during the freshmen seasons. Russo added that McNamara is fun to watch because of the all-out approach he brings to races. It’s a mentality that became contagious among the squad’s upperclassmen, according to Russo. “(He’s) totally an old school distance runner. He gets after it every day,” Russo said via email.” Russo will also look for contributions from senior Luke Roell, junior Zack Stross of Monfort Heights and sophomores Stephen Babcock and Andy Cornelius. The quartet has the potential to among the Lancers “top seven,” runners, according to Russo. The boys’ understanding of team competition has Russo excited about the upcoming season. “If you see this group out on the roads, you’ll notice that they are getting after

Head coach Mark Bierkan likes the work ethic of his 2011 squad and added that he expects a strong showing from his team this season. Erik Tomczeski, who placed 19th in the region last year, should be at the forefront for the Cardinals, while sophomore Nate Sizemore, seniors Dillan Coulter and Jimmy Booth, as well as freshmen Marcus Price and Rodney Allen are also expected to contribute.

All-GCL Central first-teamers Tommy Foertmeyer and Alex Mathis should be back to lead the squad led by coach Hal Wallace. Mathis placed seventh at last year's district meet, while Foertmeyer placed 18th.

The Bombers are working on a streak of five straight state-meet appearances as a team. Last year’s state lineup featured six seniors, though, so the 2011 squad will feature several new faces.

Mason will continue to be a factor in races this season. “Our league is the toughest in the state and will be a battle,” he said. “Mason has incredible numbers and talent so they will continue to be tough as well.” For more coverage, visit s, and Nick on Twitter at @PressPrepsNick.

Lady Cards running hard into 2011 By Nick Dudukovich

COLERAIN TWP. – Colerain High School girls cross country coach Mark Bierkan returns a motivated squad for the 2011 campaign. The Lady Cardinals enter the season on heels of a season where the squad missed qualifying for state as a team by only 11 points. With a strong core of runners signed up for 2011, the Lady Cardinals could be poised to make another strong push in the postseason later this fall. Junior Kristen Seiler should lead the pack for Colerain, after qualifying individually for the state tour-

nament in 2010, placing 24th. Seiler, who also played volleyball last season, will

not play the sport this fall so that she may focus all of her attention on running, according to Bierkan. Freshman Hannah Tobler could also make an impact during her first year at the high school level. “(Hannah) has made huge strides in her first summer of conditioning and will be a huge contributor this year,” Bierkan said via email. Kelly White will also return for her sophomore effort. White posted a personal best time of 20 minutes, 29 seconds during last fall’s district meet. “(Kelly) was one of the biggest reasons we won the

district title,” Bierkan said. Colerain may also receive contributions from senior Allison Stafford. Like Seiler, Stafford gave up a sport (soccer), to run cross country. According to Bierkan, Stafford may go through some trials and tribulations of participating in a new sport. “(Allison) has a ton of talent, but is still in the process of learning about the sport,” he said. Bierka added that junior Kabrella Clark will be another runner to watch this season. Clark battled injuries most of last fall, but was running times in the low

20-minute range at the end of last season. While the experienced Seiler should be leading the way for Colerain, Bierkan believes the team’s enthusiasm could have the Lady Cardinals posting impressive times. “The rest of the team has an amazing amount of talent and if they can put it all together, they could very dangerous,” he said. “The kids have the motto, ‘It’s our team,’ and have really taken that expression to heart. It should be a very exciting year for the Cardinals.” For more coverage, visit


Colerain junior Kristen Seiler decided not to play volleyball this fall so that she could focus her attention to the cross country team.

McAuley on the brink of a big season By Ben Walpole

Don’t look now, but the McAuley High School cross country team might resemble a late-’90s-vintage Colerain squad sooner than later. OK, that might be asking a bit much – Ron Russo coached the Cardinals to four straight state championships between 19972000. But Russo’s third team at McAuley certainly has the potential to be one of the area’s best. The optimism begins with the return of seniors Danielle Pfeifer and Sarah Pierce. Pierce has been among McAuley’s top three varsity runners all four years of her high school career. Russo said she’s already posted an 18:57 at a road race this summer. Pfeifer’s track exploits – two-time state placer in the 800, member of McAuley’s 2011 state runner-up 4x800 relay – have earned her Division I college attention from Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio State, among others. She was a regional


McAuley High School senior Sarah Pierce, center, ranks among the top returning cross country runners in the GGCL this fall. qualifier in cross country last season as well. “She has the ability to transform from a great middle distance runner into an outstanding all-state cross country runner,” Russo said. The track/cross country carry-over could be a major theme for the team this year. Russo is hoping that the big-meet experience several of his runners gained during the spring will help prepare them for

the rigors of the cross country season. Sophomore Kate Olding is a case in point. She excelled in the 1,600 and 3,200 for the track team and was a member of the 4x800 relay team. Russo thinks she could be primed for a breakout this fall. Juniors Brenna Silber and Olivia Schaefer also are key returnees. Silber was second team all-Girls Greater Cincinnati League Scarlet last season. Russo called

Schaefer “one of the hardest workers on the team.” The program’s numbers continue to improve – up to around 30 this year. The result is outstanding overall depth. Senior Marie Stevenot, juniors Meghan Goldick, Kathryn Orth and Claire Tonnis, as well sophomore Ellie Thiemann figure to play key roles this year. Russo is very excited about a talented crop of newcomers to the program, too. Freshman McKenzie Pfeifer – Danielle’s younger sister – never ran anything longer than an 800 during her grade-school track career, but could make an immediate impact. “She brings a lot of talent,” Russo said. “But not only that – she’s a tough kid. She’s a tough competitor.” Fellow freshmen Lindsey Schmucker and Faith Waters – younger sister of last season’s team captain, Mallory Waters – are names to keep an eye on. Don’t be surprised if junior Krista Tensing provides a boost too. She was an all-GGCL

track performer in the spring and is running cross country for the first time. It all sounds like the makings of something big. A talent-laden roster with the right balance between experience and youth. The Mohawks won’t take anything for granted this year, though, not after failing to qualify for regionals last season. Russo called their sixth-place finish at the district meet last fall “a terribly disappointing finish.” “I think I assumed too much,” Russo said. “I should’ve had them a little bit better prepared for that district course.” As a result, Russo has modified the team’s schedule some this offseason. He also made sure his team got more familiar with the Voice of America Park course that hosts the district meet. The GGCL will be very competitive again. Defending champs St. Ursula looks to be loaded, as does Mercy. Seton, too, has a lot of returning talent. Russo, though, is hopeful that his team can take the next step from good to


McAuley High School senior Danielle Pfeifer is attracting major Division I college attention as a track star, but her accomplishments in cross country aren’t far behind. elite this season. “Our training has certainly been elevated this summer. We’re doing things now that we could only start to do in the middle of the season the last two years. The workload has increased, and the pace at which they train has increased,” Russo said. “I’m very cautiously optimistic that we could have a really special team. We do have some obstacle to overcome if we’re going to reach that elite status. We can’t just say we’re going to do it. We have to go out and prove we can do it.” For more coverage, visit s, or Ben on Twitter at @PressPrepsBen.

A home that includes a set-aside space for relaxation and rejuvenation offers a unique amenity to the homeowner, and a feature that is an added resale advantage. The key is to make the space beautiful, comfortable and conducive to contemplative activity. Start with quiet, pastel colors on the walls and floor. You might choose a light yellow to provide a warm background for a massage table set up next to a yoga mat near an airy window adorned with a wind chime. Or place a comfortable couch with a bookshelf and side table for quiet reading in a room painted soft blue to promote restful ease. An assortment of plush pillows, beautiful rugs and soft throws will increase the comfort level of a sitting area. An indoor fountain provides “white noise” – the restful sound of running water. Potted plants add living energy and freshness to any room. Potpourri, essential oil diffusers and candles that exude relaxing scents can all add to the ambiance. A room that is totally dedicated to restoring your sense of equanimity and healthfulness is truly a luxury.

A while back I saw a movie taken from the front of a cable car as it drove down San Fransisco’s Market Street in 1906. The mostly horse-drawn vehicles, in general, stayed on the right side of the street, despite the absence of any lane markings. Consequently, vehicles often strayed into the left lanes. And people on foot regularly dashed helter-skelter across the street. As I watched the scene unfold, I detected a sense of optimism and excitement. Today Market Street, I think, would be four lanes designated by lines. The vehicles would be headlight to bumper in their respective files. The foot traffic would be restricted to the sidewalks, crossing only when directed by the image of a walking man. Any sense of optimism and excitement will have died . The order is for our own good and I’m sure there are fewer accidents today than in 1906. But what price do we pay for this safety? I am not recommending that we return to the days of horse drawn vehicles and no traffic regulations. What I suggest is that safety regulations should reflect a concern for our freedom.

Library plan

The Cincinnati library is facing budget challenges. Rather than expecting Hamilton County homeowners to pay additional taxes, the library board can choose to be good stewards of public money: 1) Change library branch hours: noon to 7 – providing cool buildings in summer, after school, and when parents are home from their jobs. 2) Close College Hill, Covedale, Forest Park, Greenhills, Hyde Park, Mount Healthy, Monfort Heights, West End, and Wyoming and encourage use of central branches. Churches can coordinate trips to the library to encourage reading. Continued learning provides a sense of accomplishment and the opportunity to improve job skills. 3) Stop providing free movies now available over the Internet. 4) Withdraw from the consortium allowing thousands from adjacent counties to have free library access. It is unconscionable for the board to expect Hamilton County property owners to pro-

vide free movies and books outside of Hamilton County. Being a consortium member only increases the numbers for national recognition. Consortium membership increases property taxes for Hamilton County homeowners many who lost jobs and homes. Individuals from private industry – where difficult budget decisions are quickly learned – should be appointed to the board. The library is a business and must be run efficiently.

No ranting?

After returning from vacation on July 31, I got to read the July 27 issue of the Northwest Press, but I think something was missing. Where was the socialistic ranting from Ann Thompson? Some of us readers rely on that for comic relief. Dave Matre White Oak

Political posturing

As an independent, I would have to agree that many letters including the one from Charles Homer bring chuckles. Clearly, both sides have their limits. But, facts show that Democrats have a better track record than Republicans over time managing our fiscal responsibilities. In the year 2000, we had a $5 trillion surplus. During the Bush years, a $1.7 trillion unfunded tax cut for the rich appeared, two 10year wars for trillions of dollars and Medicare D drug plan for a half a trillion dollars. And, in fact ,the stimulus was started under Bush. Today, the FAA is shutting down projects across the country for lack of a bill to continue collecting the tax that funds them, due in part by GOP insistence that we not support several small airports and an attempt to insert anti-union legislation into a tax bill. The savings, according to the GOP, for shutting down these airports is $16 million. The cost: 4,000 jobs at the FAA, 70,000 construction jobs and $30 million per day in lost tax revenue. So, we save $16 million and we lose $1,000 million. Tell me how this makes sense other than political posturing. Terrell Stephens Colerain Township

Smog harmful to everybody When a smog alert is issued, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Will the protective membranes in my nose and throat swell? Will I have red, itchy eyes? Will my working lung capacity will decrease? Chances are, probably not. But those questions are issues that could arise when smog levels are high. Smog is formed when pollutants are present in the air and they react with sunlight. These pollutants are formed from emissions from vehicles, industries and consumer products such as oil-based paint and cleaners. Smog is harmful to your cardiovascular system as well as your respiratory system. If you already have respiratory problems, such as bronchitis or asthma, smog could further exasperate your condition. When particulate matter (dust and soot) is inhaled, it can get into your nose and throat and dry it out causing swelling. The small particles can also decrease the working capacity of your lungs. This can allow for more infections to take place within the body. Cardiovascular problems result from inhaling particulate matter and ozone which allows the fine

airborne chemicals to get into your lungs; aggravating allergies. This could in turn reduce the blood flow and oxygen supply to your Loren heart. Koehler Although smog affects Community every person, Recorder there are three guest categories that columnist are affected at higher levels than everybody else when smog levels rise. The first group includes children because their lungs are not fully developed and are more prone to infections by breathing smog infested air. The elderly are another high risk group, due to the fact they may have pre-existing cardiovascular and respiratory problems. They typically also have weaker lungs, heart and immune systems which can make them more susceptible to illnesses and infections. The last group includes people that already have respiratory problems. These people have poor

lung function and therefore, asthma attacks and other breathing issues are more prevalent because of the inflammation in the lungs. It is impossible and unrealistic to completely avoid the air outside but there are several things you can do to stay healthy. Be aware when smog alerts are issued through your local media outlets and websites such as Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments’ Avoid long-term exposure to the outdoors when a smog alert is called, especially if you are in one of the three high-risk categories. There are no safe levels of smog. However, if you take action by keeping your vehicle maintained, driving less, hydrating more, and avoiding the use of gas powered equipment before 8 p.m. everybody can breathe a little easier.

Smoking law is a Draconian ban Hamilton County Health Commissioner Tim Ingram stated in his article, “Smoke-free workplace law working” that “there remains a small handful of area establishments still thumbing their noses at the law under the guise of ‘freedom and liberty.’” The smoking ban in Ohio is one of the most Draconian bans in the country. Most bans provide exemptions for liquor establishments. Throughout the state of Ohio hundreds of neighborhood liquor establishments have gone out of business since the imposition of the smoking ban. These businesses are for the most part family businesses. The Buckeye Liquor Permit Holders Association has lobbied Ohio leaders for an exemption for bars and private clubs who cater only to an over 21 clientele. The bars that have incurred fines are neither nose thumbers nor freedom fighters. They are merely trying to survive in the hostile business atmosphere that is Ohio. Bars have

lost on average 30 to 40 percent of their revenue since the ban went into effect. If any bar owners saw an increase in sales, as was by the Jim Hurd promised promoters of the Community ban, they would Press guest need their heads if they columnist examined wanted to allow smoking again. Ingram also stated, “to my knowledge this is the first such action in the state since the law took effect.” I would direct his attention to the Zeno’s case now in the Ohio Supreme Court. If the high court finds in favor of Zeno’s, the law will be overturned. Regulatory agencies are keenly aware of that fact and the attorney general’s office is going after bars at this point because it is likely their last chance to collect fines.

CH@TROOM Do you support a federal balanced budget amendment? Why or why not? “I would like to see a balanced budget amendment. Also add to this amendment a line item veto and only one item per bill – no pork barrel additions. Plus put the Congress on social security and all the monies taken from (borrowed) social security funds to be returned. Term limits for all Congressmen makes sense also. We have too many politicians who never held a real job, ran a real company or balanced a budget. Go Figure!” T.D.T. “Our politicians have spent our economy into an unsustainable mess. We have too many Federal promises of future bailouts for pensions, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, low-rent housing, food stamps, long term unemployment coverage, college tuition programs, Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare, veteran programs, and this is only

Send your answers to with “chatroom” in the subject line. a partial listing of government goods and services. If our politicians in Washington will not enable the constitutional amendment for a balanced budget, we should demand a state generated constitutional convention to get it done. Our total federal debt, if pension guarantees and other promises are included, could soon be $110 trillion or more. We need a federal government shrinkage of about 40 percent. Much of the federal government should be consolidated and or eliminated. Most of what happens in D.C. hurts us more than it helps us. Grandpa Stan

“I support a balanced budget amendment because congresses and presidents of both parties have proven over many decades that we badly need one. “Our annual deficits keep getting worse and our debt is piling up to such an extent that our children and grandchildren will be paying it off for a long time to come. Those current politicians who claim we don't need such an amendment are being very disingenuous, since they have created the greatest unbalanced budgets in the history of our nation.” T.H. “Absolutely! If these guys had to like like the rest of us, there wouldn't be any question about it. It's simple ... don't spend what you don't have, and keep your nose out of everyone else's business.” J.K. “I think our D.C. politicians need to wake up and smell reality.

If that can be done without a constitutional amendment I would prefer that approach. “It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that a person, or an entity is being foolish if it doesn't manage its finances so that the expenses do not exceed the income. “I realize that the federal government's spending is far more complicated than an average family, but the principal still applies. Do not spend what you do not have. “And don't threaten to take away benefits like Social Security from seniors as a way to frighten them into supporting continued deficits.

Obviously our leaders do not know how to handle money and we need a constitutional amendment to protect us from them.” R.V. “Congress is filled with lawyers who are in the 1 percent that Democrats and media hate, yet media and the unions are beholden to them. “Since members of Congress are constantly re-elected by the taxpayers who apparently don't understand that they are being ripped off by their rich congressperson (Schmidt/Sherrod/Chabot, et al.), I favor a balanced budget amendment as the only way stay in touch with the 'money.’ “BTW...TKS for letting me spew "-).” K.P.

Digital Bookmobile heads for Groesbeck branch By Jennie Key

Even the old school Bookmobile has jumped to the digital age. And the new and improved Digital Bookmobile is making the Groesbeck branch library one of two local stops on its national tour. The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County will welcome the Digital Bookmobile from noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 17, at the Groesbeck branch, 2994 W. Galbraith Road. The new bookmobile visits the Loveland branch on Thursday, Aug. 18. Visitors can learn how to download eBooks and e-audiobooks from the library through interactive demonstrations and everyone touring the Digital Bookmobile will receive a set of ear buds and an entry form for a chance to win a color Nook ereader. Groesbeck branch manager Ned Heeger-Brehm said he started angling for a visit from the new bookmobile last year. “They have a tight touring schedule and I was thrilled when they could fit us in,” he said. “What I like about the bookmobile is that people can see things in person and try them out, handson. With e-books and e-readers, people really need to see them in person. It’s just something that you can’t easily get your mind around without trying them out.” Operated by Overdrive Inc. and housed inside an 18-wheel tractor trailer, this a high-tech update of the traditional bookmobile. Rather than bringing shelves of books, it’s equipped with Internet-connected computers, a sound system, and a variety of portable media players which allow visitors


Visitors to the Gadget Galley get some hands-on experience with the library’s digital collection. to explore the library system’s download service. There are 9,178 e-book titles in the Ohio Ebook Project collection, though the library has multiple copies of titles based on demand which brings the total collection size to 25,118 e-books.

Clippard ready for playground build By Jennie Key

The Clippard YMCA KaBOOM playground project is three weeks from construction and organizers say the playground is on target for its Aug. 20 build date. Laura Kumler, project chairwoman for the Clippard YMCA, says things are off to a good start. The area where the playground will be built is cleared and ready for construction. Fundraising has been ongoing, and Kumler said the YMCA is still looking for donors to help pay for the playground. KaBOOM is a national nonprofit group helps local community groups build playgrounds. Its founder has a vision of creating a great place to play within walking distance of every child in America. The group is teamed with Foresters, a life insurance provider. Kumler said her team has done a great job getting things ready to go. She said the project includes youth participation throughout the process. “Now that the kids have helped design the project, they still have things to do,” she said. “They are making the ribbon for the dedication, and during the build, they will be making stepping stones to be used in the project.”


The Digital Bookmobile visits the Groesbeck branch library Aug. 17.


The leadership team for the Clippard YMCA/KaBOOM playground project includes Heather Harlow, Tom Abercrombie and Laura Kumler. In addition to building the playground, the team will improve a quarter-mile walking trail around the playground and adjacent fields, adding benches to make the area more welcoming. “We want people to use the playground,” she said. “It’s in an area that will be easily accessible to the public.” Kumler says the team is striving to keep it green, as well. The Hamilton County Park District will bring a program on nature’s recycling to the children’s activities on build day and the team will pass along any unused materials to Colerain Township’s Wert Park playground project in September. Any left over food will be donated to local agencies to make sure nothing is wasted. Kumler is cochairwoman for the playground project with Tom Abercrombie. Committee chairpeople are Brian Bridgeford, construction; Vic Rizzo, safety; Gary

6,866 e-audiobooks in the collection, and with multiple copies the total number is 12,953 e-audiobooks. Except in rare cases, these are just like library books: the library buys individual copies and they get checked out to one borrower at a time.

Heeger-Brehm says patrons can learn how to enjoy the system’s free digital titles with just a library card and an Internet- connected computer, smartphone, or tablet. Library cardholders can check out and download digital titles any time by visiting Patrons can take advantage of the download service 24 hours a day, seven days a week when they visit the library system’s website. Once downloaded, digital titles can be enjoyed on a computer or transferred to mobile devices. At the end of the lending period, titles will automatically expire and are returned to the digital collection. And there are never late fees or damaged items to worry about. The public library system’s July circulation numbers set a new record: 22,068 e-books and 6,668 e-audiobooks checked out. This is compared to July 2010 in which 1,618 e-books were checked out and 5,081 e-audiobooks were

checked out. “Those numbers are still dwarfed by how many physical books were checked out,” HeegerBrehm said. “But that’s a more than a 1,000 percent increase in e-book checkouts which is pretty stunning if you ask me. Year to date, we’ve had 133,905 e-books and e-audiobooks checked out, compared to 38,632 in 2010.” The library also started a new service in May called Freegal, which allows library card holders to download popular music tracks. The name comes from the fact that this is legal music downloading – as opposed to piracy – that is free because it’s through the library. Heeger-Brehm said added to ebook and e-audiobook circulation, the total number of downloads of all music, books, and audiobooks was 52,164 in July, up from 6,751 last July. Year to date as of July the total was 203,589 compared to 39,137 last year. “If there was one thing I would try to convey is that I am very happy that we are keeping up with customer demand,” he said. “They still check out thousands of physical books – 841,862 checkouts in July alone system-wide. “I recently made a presentation at a library conference and the message I concluded with was this: Our customers truly see libraries in their downloadable future – we just have to be willing to meet them there. I really believe that, and I am really glad the library has done so much to make sure we’re up to speed on what has become just another format that our customers want.” For more about your community, visit

About Foresters

Since 2006, Foresters has invested more than $7 million with KaBOOM and built or have planned almost 100 playgrounds across the United States and Canada. Foresters is a KaBOOM national partner and a founding member of the KaBOOM Leadership Circle – a group of organizations providing long-term guidance and support to KaBOOM and its mission. Ryan Jones, a Forester spokesman, said Foresters has built 60 playgrounds in partnership with KaBOOM and is committed to build 32 more in the next three years. “Foresters believes this playground will provide a great opportunity for families to spend time together,” he said. “These projects can help connect families and transform communities.” Schroeder, logistics; Heather Harlow, public relations; Kim Pfohl and Sara Key, youth involvement; Vicki Seng and Andrea McGowan, food; and Holly Clippard, fundraising. “I am grateful we have such great leadership for this project,” said Clippard YMCA executive director Doug Hechler. Kumler said the two big needs for the project now are workers for Aug. 20, and donations to help cover the cost of the project. “No experience is necessary to volunteer for the build,” she said. “Just a willingness to be part of the team.” To volunteer or make a donation, email Kumler at or call the Clippard YMCA at 923-4466.


Police motorcycle units, led by Coleran Township Police Officer Mark Meyer, started last year’s GoodTimers Freedom Ride as it left the VFW Hall on Brownsway Lane last year.

GoodTimers foundation ready to ride for a cause

By Jennie Key

The 11th Annual Freedom Ride, sponsored by the GoodTimers Foundation, will be “A Call to Unity.” Tom Scherz, a founding member and information director for the GoodTimers, says the group continues to support local communities. The annual Poker Run will be Sunday, Aug. 21. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the ride leaves at 11 a.m. from the Gailey VFW Post, 8326 Brownsway Lane. There is a $15 donation for one rider and $5 for a passenger to ride. Scherz says breakfast sandwiches will be available for a small donation and Bob Cushing will play in the morning. At the end of the ride, back at the VFW Hall, there will be a party with entertainment by Sonny Moor-

man, Dangerous Jim and the Rock & Roll All Stars, and Final Order. Scherz says there will be biker food from the Wedge Inn. Admission to the afterride party is a $5 donation. Last year, more than 300 bikes participated. The ride has raised more than $276,000 since it started in 2001. The fund was started to benefit victims of the 911 attack. Members of the GoodTimers Foundation decided to continue the ride and began giving money to area police departments, or area families in need. Neediest Kids of All, scholarship projects, memorial funds, Make-A-Wish and area DARE programs are a few of the many recipients of the ride and other events such as the Big Hearts Helping Little Hearts Gala and Auction in 2007 and 2008.

Scherz said the group has a growing interest in the Honor Flights. “We plan to connect more with veterans and veterans groups,” he said. Now Scherz says the children of the founding members are taking up the cause and continuing the tradition. “They are taking a more active role, and we’re glad to see it,” he said. Scherz said the ride is taking a new route to the American Legion in Harrison, Ind. and the after-ride party will be rain or shine. “We are putting a bigger emphasis on the party,” he said. “People who don’t ride are still welcome at the party.” For more information, visit the group’s website at

Fresh or not, pears are tasty in romaine poppy salad My good intentions to make cashew pear salad with poppy seed dressing using pears from our tree will never come to pass. Why? The squirrels decided to pull every pear from our tree. I can just imagine how it happened: it had to be at night or very e a r l y Rita m o r n i n g Heikenfeld when the pear heist Rita’s kitchen b e g a n , since I was out near the pear tree right before dusk admiring all those beautiful, almost ripe, pears. I was thinking about the jars of pear butter, canned pears and chutneys I was planning to make, along with the pear salad. This morning I went out to pick some mint for my lemon mint spa water (check out my blog at, Cooking with Rita, for the recipe) and passed by the tree. I was dumfounded when I looked up. Really. Not a pear remained. And it wasn’t the deer, since they usually tug on the branches and leave a bit of a mess as they chew. To make matters worse, they cleaned the ground around the tree, so not even a piece of pear was left. It’s not that the squirrels need those pears. There are plenty of oak and nut trees on our property. But you know me, I’m not one to give up so easily. So I’ll buy pears at Kroger to make this nice salad. But I still can’t pass the tree without frowning …



Rita shares tips for finding the freshest corn. Here she is with the Silver Queen corn in her garden.

Cashew pear salad with romaine and poppy seed dressing

onion 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard Salt to taste Serves 6-8.

Toss together: 1 large bunch romaine, cut up, or equivalent mixed greens 1 cup shredded Swiss 1 cup salted cashews 2 pears, sliced thin 1 ⁄2 cup dried cherries or cranberries Poppy seed dressing: Mix together: 2 ⁄3 cup olive oil 1 ⁄2 cup sugar 1 ⁄3 cup lemon juice Poppy seeds: go to taste and start with a couple of teaspoons 1 tablespoon minced red

Some folks like to squeeze out part of the juice and seeds of the tomatoes. 1 pie crust 1 tablespoon flour 8 oz mozzarella, Monterey Jack or combo of both Salt and pepper to taste 1 ⁄2 to 3⁄4 cup mayonnaise, regular or light (start out

minutes or until puffed and golden. Serves 6.

Tips from readers’ kitchens

Mango cutter/ seeder great for peaches, too. Kay Hitzler, nurse extraordinaire at Good Sam during the day and my sous chef extraordinaire for evening classes at Jungle Jim’s, shared this timely tip. We made a lavender peach claufouti (custard) and the peaches were not free stones. Kay took the mango cutter/seeder and pushed it through the peach. Voila – it cut cleanly through the peach and removed the seed, too, with hardly any waste. She thought it would be good for plums, too. Thanks, Kay!

Selecting sweet corn. We grow Silver Queen corn and it’s always so sweet and picked at the time of perfect ripeness. But if you’re buying corn, here’s what to look for: fresh green, tightly closed husks with dark brown, dry, but not brittle, silk. The stem should be moist but not chalky, yellow or discolored. Ears should have plum, tender, small kernels in tight rows up to the tip. A fresh kernel will spurt “milk” if punctured. Make corn sweeter. Add a squirt of honey to the water before boiling corn.

Pickle some peppers on ‘Can it Forward’ day More and more folks are growing their own food in the ground or in containers. And with the increase of “growing their own,” comes a renewed interest in “canning their own.” Don’t know about you, but I have many great memories seeing my Grandma Wilson canning – even making her own kraut in big

kraut crocks. And I can’t forget watching my mom and Aunt Lena as they spent hours canning jars of beans. My mom was the best making her own jams, jellies, apple butters and more. M-m-m-m, my mouth is watering! Anyway, canning is making a comeback, and on Aug. 13, you can join mil-

lions of food lovers curious about canning and preserving fresh foods as a part of “National Can-it-Forward Day.” Jarden Home Brands has teamed with Canning Across America, several cooks, gardeners and food lovers committed to the revival of the lost art of “putting up” home grown


food, to create this special day. Join the “Canvolution” visit or Speaking of my mom, here is her famous Pickled Peppers Recipe. It’s a very easy recipe, and works great with sweet or hot peppers, and green tomatoes as well!

Nell Wilson’s Famous Pickled Hot Peppers


Wash and clean peppers. Leave whole with a slit down the center (or poke with a toothpick) to allow brine to flow through, or cut into slices as desired. I like to remove the seeds if I slice them, but this is optional.


Sterilizing jars (count on about 5 pints):


2 cups water Up to 2 cups sugar Bring just to a boil and then lower to a simmer:

Wash jars and lids. Then place in a big pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, boiling for 15 minutes. Keep jars and lids in the hot water until you’re ready to fill them. Now let’s make the brine and prepare the peppers!


6 cups clear vinegar, 5 percent acidity

Place the peppers in sterilized, hot jars, packing tightly. Pour boiled (now simmering) brine over the packed peppers, covering all the peppers. Add seasonings, such as garlic, bay leaf, herbs, etc. as desired, or leave plain. Seal and let cool away from drafts -store away from heat and light. No need to process these as the

5 percent v i n e g a r keeps bacteria out. Ron Wilson That’s all there is to In the garden this wonderful pickled pepper recipe. Making your own is so easy and much more crisp and tasty than the store-bought variety. If you like, chill in refrigerator before serving. And remember, you can do all hot peppers, all sweet peppers, sweet peppers with a few hot, as well as tossing in a few green cherry tomatoes, hot or sweet. It’s all up to you! Enjoy!
