Colerain KaBOOM build is Sept. 9 By Jennie Key

Volunteers will gather at the Wert Family Park next week for the community’s second KaBOOM project this summer. The Clippard YMCA Forester/ KaBOOM build was Aug. 20. Now, the Dr. Pepper-Snapple/ KaBOOM build at the Wert Family Park gets under way Sept. 9. The undeveloped Wert Family Park property at 3460 W. Galbraith Road was donated by Bob and Edward Wert and family in 2009. Additional plans for the park include a natural walking trail, community gardens and a parking lot. Youngsters and parents had input during the design day for the playground in July, and now the plan is ready to be built. Parks and Services Director Kevin Schwartzhoff said the township is ready and the build goes on, rain or shine. The township has about 200 people lined up to work that day. The playground at the park will be built in one day by volunteers and township personnel. Colerain Township Fiscal Officer Heather Harlow has been involved with both KaBOOM projects and says it’s going to take a lot of volunteers. One group of volunteers is coming to put what they have learned into practice – students from the Construction Technology program in the Butler Tech program at Northwest Career Center under instructor Ken Broxterman will be part of the team. “This kind of work is what they want to do,” Harlow said. “They will be cutting lumber for the side projects ahead of time, and they

At the township’s last family movie in the park, youngsters made handprint plaques to be used around the playground and community garden area of the park, and also crafted a large paper chain to be used at the rib-

bob cutting ceremony. The counselors also planned activities for children whose parents are working at the build site. 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. Schwartzhoff said the park will be open beginning Monday, Sept. 12. “Parking is limited there now, but we are hoping to get a grant to pave the parking lot later this month,” he said. “For now, visitors should use the gravel drive. We are also planning to get some park signs up there, as well.” If you want to get involved with the Wert Family Park playground build, call Tawanna Molter at 385-7503.

Colerain Township trustees will consider a plan to kick off redevelopment of Northgate Mall at the next board meeting. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 13, at the Colerain Township Government Complex, 4200 Springdale Road. The hearing is set for 8 p.m. The Colerain Township Zoning Commission approved a new preliminary development plan for Northgate Mall Aug. 30. That recommendation now goes to the board for a decision. The vote was 4-1, with Dan Temming voting no. During the commission’s discussion of the plan, he said he does not like outparcels because he believes they block the view of the mall and reduce parking. The commission also removed a condition from the plan regarding sign height to allow for a comprehensive sign plan to be developed for the whole mall property. The Tabani Group, a Dallas, Texas, real estate investment group, has an option to buy and redevelop the mall. McBride Dale Clarion, a land-use and real estate consulting firm acting as agent for the group, has submitted a new preliminary development plan for the mall. Phase One of the plan includes the creation of five out parcels for restaurants and financial institutions. The plan shows two new outlots at the southern entrance to the mall on either side of the Mall Road access road. It calls for a fast-food restaurant with a drivethrough window on the south side of Mall Road and a bank on the parcel on the north side of Mall Road. A third parcel near the pedestrian bridge would also be the site of a fast-food restaurant. Two additional lots are proposed for the Springdale Road frontage and would be developed as a sit-down restaurant, reported to be Cheddar’s, and a bank. Northgate is currently zoned as a planned development business district which requires that a development plan be reviewed and approved by the township. The preliminary plan establishes the outlots. The developer will also have to have township approval on final development plans, which will include landscape plans, signage, lighting and building details.

Children 12 and younger get in free. Admission for everyone is free on Saturday and Sunday until 3:30 p.m. All the money the Kiwanis Club raises at the Harvest Home Fair goes directly back to the community in the form of scholarships, building projects and charitable giving. Throughout the years, proceeds from the fair have helped women’s shelters, area schools, Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, local parks and recreation fields. “All the hard work pays off and it’s a really great

way to give back to our community,” Clinkenbeard said. “It makes it all worthwhile.” He said the fair would not be what it is without the support of the families and neighbors who attend the event. “This has been going on for more than 150 years. That says a lot about the people and traditions on the West Side,” he said. “They continue to come back and support us every year.”

The 152nd annual Harvest Home Fair presented by the Kiwanis Club of Cheviot-Westwood kicks off with the Harvest Home Parade at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 8.

Bonnie Perrino-Badinghaus, a Cheviot business owner and longtime Kiwanis member, is the grand marshal of this year’s parade. She said it’s an honor to be named the grand marshal. “There are so many Kiwanians who have done so many great things, it’s humbling to have been chosen,” she said. “I’m looking forward to it.” Perrino-Badinghaus said she loves all aspects of the parade, but her favorites are watching all the schools participate and listening to the marching bands.

Many artists enter every year, but seldom enter the same art work. Christopherson said some artists work all year just for this show. Judging this year will be

Robert Hebenstreit, a teacher at the Art Academy of Cincinnati. “We try to have different judge each year,” she said. “Each judge looks for different aspects. It gives us a variety of art winners.” There are prizes for the top three in each category.

Apparitions expert talks at St. Ignatius An internationally known expert on the alleged apparitions of the Virgin Mary in Bosnia is coming to speak to groups in several Northern Kentucky churches in September. Wayne Weible, who has been studying the alleged apparitions in a small village in Bosnia called Medjugorje, will be speaking about his experiences at 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, at St. Ignatius, 5222 North Bend Road. In June 1981, it is said that the Virgin Mary began appearing and speaking to six teenagers in the small village daily, giving them messages. The visits have continued daily for the past 30 years, bringing with them countless miracles to those who live in and visit the area, said Weible, who first heard about the apparitions in 1985. “At the time, I was a very lukewarm Protestant who wasn’t even sure if I believed in God,” Weible said. “When I first heard about Medjugorje, I thought it was nonsense, but something inside me wanted to learn more.” Weible, who at the time was a journalist and owned four newspapers, decided to

look further into the apparitions for a story on modernday miracles and obtained videos of the teens that showed them when the apparitions allegedly occur. “I could see the serenity in their faces, and at that moment I thought, ‘Oh my God, this is real,’” Weible said. “I heard the Virgin Mary speaking to my heart, asking me to do her son’s will and to make my life’s work writing about these messages.” Within the next few months, Weible sold his papers, studied about apparitions, traveled to Medjugorje and soon began work on a series of several books about the phenomenon. Since then, Weible has spent his time writing and traveling around the world speaking about Medjugorje, including on The Oprah Winfrey Show. “It has been an incredible journey that has changed my life completely,” said Weible, who became a Catholic several years ago. “I have no intentions of ever retiring and hope to do this until I die.” For more information about Weible, visit or go to

known. He spent 12 years as bereavement manager for VITAS Innovative Hospice Care in Cincinnati, retiring in 2008; 11 years as a support group leader for Maximum Living in Birmingham, Mich., which provides grief counseling services; and two years as a bereavement specialist. In 1978 he helped found Parents of Murdered Children (POMC), which provides support and assis-

tance to the families and friends of those who have died by violence. POMC is now a national organization with dozens of local chapters in states across the country. Over 15 years Czillinger helped form more than 20 support groups for the bereaved, including widowed persons, children and teenagers, and those who have experienced miscarriage and stillbirth.

He continues to teach a course entitled “Life through Death” for the College of Mount St. Joseph. Czillinger holds a master of divinity degree from the Athenaeum of Ohio and an undergraduate degree in English from Xavier University.

Aubrey Rose foundation grants 36 scholarships The Aubrey Rose Hollenkamp Foundation has awarded 36 scholarships to eighth-graders who, from 22 different grade schools who are continuing on to 17 different Catholic High schools. At their graduations, each student was awarded a $500 scholarship toward their freshman year of high school.

SCHOOL NOTES McAuley High School

Alumna Sarah Drake, who graduated 10 years ago, recently returned to her alma mater to mentor and inspire members of the vocal ensemble, a group she performed with during her time at the school. Drake is the founder/creator of the Manhattan Dolls, a performing group that sings tunes from the 1940s and ‘50s that recently performed at McAuley. She was accompanied by two other members of the nine-woman troupe, Heather Dispensa and Sheila Coyle. The three women

shared their “making it in New York� stories with the 15 students in McAuley’s vocal ensemble. They even asked the students for feedback from their concert, as most were in attendance. The performers talked about engaging and relating to audiences, open auditions for shows, agents and many other facets of their careers. For instance, Drake told the students she lived in a convent for two years after arriving in New York City only three months after earning a bachelor of fine arts in musical theater from Northern Kentucky University.

Colerain cements status as powerhouse By Nick Dudukovich

COLERAIN TWP. - Did you see the Colerain Cardinals knock off Florida super team Cocoa High School during week one of the football season? Chances are you were either in attendance at Colerain High School, or watching like fans around the country did on national television. The Cardinals’ game on ESPN marked the second time in the past three years Colerain had the attention of a national viewing audience. Different this time was the outcome, as the Cardinals avenged their 2009 loss to Elder by ending Cocoa’s 38-game winning streak. After the win, Cardinals’ head coach Tom Bolden recognized the magnitude to which the Cardinals had reached. “It’s just the atmosphere and to think ESPN...thinks enough of your program to put you on’s huge,” Bolden said. While playing on ESPN is unquestionably a big deal, the Cardinals have become no strangers to the spotlight. When your school has 418 wins that date back to 1935, 13 postseason appearances in the past 17 years, is ranked in national prep polls and has players scattered across the country at Division I college programs, your program is going to get noticed. This year’s top recruit is

Joe Bolden; he’s going to the University of Michigan. Defensive back Andre Jones has committed to the University of Cincinnati and defensive lineman Trae Clark, who’s still undecided about his future, has more offers than Colerain has regular season games this fall. Last year’s top recruit was Jarrett Grace, who went to the University of Notre Dame, while quarterback Tyler Williams and fullback Trayion Durham went north to the University of Akron and Kent State University, respectively. And then there was the 2004 state title squad. Tyler Moeller can still be seen at Ohio State University, while defensive lineman Brandon Mills began his third year as a UC Bearcat. Bolden, who played quarterback for the Cardinals and graduated in 1988, said that while the Cardinals historically fielded strong teams, Colerain really took

off when Kerry Coombs took the head coaching job in 1991. At that time, coaches began to view conditioning and strength training as tools players could use to gain an edge during the offseason, according to Bolden. “A combination of the weight room, and conditioning level with the kids, running the triple option, and the commitment level by the kids and coaches has allowed us to reach that national level,” Bolden said. Not many area teams could derail the Colerain train during the Coombs’ era. Even after the Cardinals had to drop out of the 1995 state title game for using an ineligible player, the squad continued a dominant run through the area prep scene by qualifying for playoffs 11 times since 1998, culminating with the 2004 championship team.


Coombs’ coined the phrase, “We are Colerain,” during his tenure at the school. And that sense of pride is evident in all Colerain players, according to Bolden. “I think with our kids playing football for Colerain, it isn’t a right, it is a definite privilege, and I think they show that with how much they work,” Bolden said. And maybe the most telling sign of how big the Colerain program has become rests with kids throughout the community. Bolden said these same children that look up to Bengals and Bearcats players, also look up to the Cardinals. “The Colerain team...those are the guys they see out in the community and they can talk to,” Bolden said. “(For those kids to meet a Colerain player) is as important to them as if they were meeting a Bengals’ player.”

Colerain 37, Ryle 0

Colerain (2-0) fullback Jackson Sorn had a breakout game by rushing for 226 yards and two touchdowns on only nine carries, Sept. 2. In the first quarter alone, Sorn rushed for 152 yards, including a 62-yard touchdown run on the first play of Colerain’s second possession of the game. The Cardinals finished with 360 total yards of offense, including 335 yards rushing. Coelrain’s defense only allowed 138 yards of offense in the contest. Colerain suffered a potentially big injury when running back Chris Davis was helped off the field in third quarter. Davis dislocated his kneecap, according to reports. In their next game, the Cardinals host St. Xavier. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m., Sept. 9.

Roger Bacon 48, North College Hill 20

Quarterback Josh Wilking stepped up to lead Roger Bacon with two touchdown throws, while halfback Griffin Mounty rushed for 148 yards and two scores, Sept. 2. Receivers Carlas Jackson, Lonnell Brown and James Long all had touchdown grabs during the contest. The Spartans held NCH back Tevin Brown, who tied a school record last week with six touchdowns, scoreless. Up Next: Roger Bacon at Western Hills at 7:30 p.m., Sept. 9, and NCH travels to Madeira the same night.

Mt. Healthy 21, Brebeuf Jesuit, Ind., 7

Mt. Healthy quarterback Greg Green was 12-for-26 in passing for 137 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown pass to Tyrell Hines. Michael Tucker and Demond Jackson both had two-yard touchdown runs. Mason Bolser’s extra point attempts were good for all three touchdowns. Up next: Aiken comes to Mt. Healthy at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Sept. 9. St. Xavier and La Salle happened after Northwest Press deadline.

St. Xavier golfer scores rare shot By Ben Walpole

Joey Arcuri didn’t even get to see the greatest golf shot of his life. The St. Xavier High School junior watched his approach shot bounce short of the green on the seventh hole at Makatewah Country Club, Aug. 27. He watched the ball bounce up and land softly on the green. He watched it start to roll. “It just kept looking better and better and better,” Arcuri said. “And then it disappeared.” The group of spectators erupting into wild cheers gave Arcuri the rest of the picture. He had just made a double eagle, or an albatross, scoring a two on the 493-yard par-five.

Arcuri began jumping up and down on the fairway. A teammate playing an adjacent hole heard the news and ran over to celebrate. “Joey pretty much was walking on water all the way back to the green,” St. Xavier head golf coach Alex Kepley said. “I don’t think we were able to get him back on Earth until a couple holes later.” It was only the second albatross (a hole in one on a par four or a two on a par five) in known school history. Oddly enough, Kepley saw the other one too. Bryan Kirby accomplished the feat in 1984, with Kepley – then a senior golfer for the Bombers – playing in the group behind him. The double eagle was not an isolated moment of success for Arcuri or the St. X team, though. He was

already two under on the first six holes, and he went on to birdie three holes on the back nine to finish with a five-under 67 – matching the school record for lowest competitive round. “All in all it was just a fantastic round of golf,” Kepley said. Arcuri’s history-making heroics paced the Bombers to a team victory in their own tournament – the St. Xavier Invitational – beating a field that included Elder, La Salle, Moeller and Upper Arlington, among other top-flight competition. Predictably, Arcuri ranked the albatross as the best shot of his career. What’s amazing is that it actually has fairly strong competition. He made a hole in one on the fifth hole Ivy Hills Country Club when he was 8 years old.

As the grandson of legendary former St. Xavier football coach Steve Rasso, Arcuri would seem destined for gridiron greatness. Didn’t work out that way, though. The Anderson Township resident stands 5-foot-7 and weighs just 135 pounds. “I wasn't really a big kid growing up,” Arcuri said. “My dad (Joe Sr.) took me to the range, and I kept loving it more and more.” Now his goals are helping the Bomber team back to the state tournament and eventually securing a scholarship to play Division I college golf. “I don’t worry about Joey on the golf course," Kepley said. "He knows how to play golf.” For more coverage, visit

Mount Healthy High School junior Linda Hoepf, center, leads the Owls in celebrating a point during a match against Winton Woods, Sept. 1.

Owls short on size, big on talent By Ben Walpole

MT. HEALTHY – One of the team captains is nicknamed Mighty Mouse. That about sums it up for the Mount Healthy High School volleyball team. “All of them are short. I have no one taller than 5foot-7,” fifth-year head coach Frances Johnson said. “But they’re hitting the ball – all of them.” Mighty Mouse, better known as junior outside hitter Linda Hoepf, stands 5foot-2, and she’s taller than two of her teammates. She’s also a three-year letter winner who ranks atop her class academically and provides tremendous vocal leadership on the court. Two inches up from her is 5-foot-4 senior Taylor Beach. She’s a three-year starter at setter, who knows all the intricacies of running the team’s offense. She was honorable mention all-Fort Ancient Valley Conference West last season. “It starts with the passes,” Beach said. “The ball has to get to me, and I have to know what hitters I have. With Linda, I have to set it higher for her because she’s shorter. Chelsey can pretty much get to everything.” Chelsey would be junior hitter Chelsey Borden, a veritable giant at 5-foot-6. Another third-year player, she’s probably the team’s best leaper. “Height doesn’t mean anything,” Borden said. “We’re short, but we can jump. We can still smash with the best of them.” The Owls graduated their tallest players from last year s 8-14 team. But this year’s group hasn’t let a little thing like being little become a problem. Mount Healthy got off to a 2-1 start last week, with wins against Western Hills and Edgewood. “We’ve had to adjust,” Hoepf said. “This year we’ve been meshing really

Beach is a three-year starter for the Owls. well.” What the Owls lack in height, they have more than made up for in team chemistry. Hoepf said this year’s players share the same sense of humor and outgoing personalities. The team unity was obvious as early as the first summer practice, according to Borden. “Everybody was laughing,” Borden said. “We were having a great time.” The team is focusing on staying positive, lifting each other’s spirits after mistakes instead of pointing fingers. Beach even told a goofy story about an August morning when the school lunch ladies offered the team a free breakfast buffet right before a practice. The girls accepted, and then bonded over the killer cramps that ensued. Because many of the players are short, several of them have played as defensive specialist in the past, including 5-foot senior Chyenne Thompson. That

has given the Owls an edge early this season. “Defense is really what’s helping us stay alive right now,” Johnson said. “I don’t even have a libero because all of them can play back row.” Shakyra Grice and Destiny Jackson join Beach and Thompson to give the Owls a strong quartet of seniors. McAuley transfer Samie Newcomer, junior Jasmine Smith and sophomore Allison Meltebrink also play key roles. Johnson said she hopes this group can improve on last year s seventh-place finish in the FAVC West, proving doubters wrong along the way. “We know we have a lot of work ahead of us, especially with trying to work on our blocking,” Johnson said. “But they back each other up. They work well together on the court.” For more coverage, visit s

MSJ football sees changes for 2011-12 By Adam Turer

Which College of Mount St. Joseph football team is going to show up in 2011? The Lions have alternately toyed with mediocrity and success since breaking through with the program’s first playoff appearance in 2004. From 2004-2006, the Lions won three straight Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference titles, and earned an at-large berth into the Division III playoffs in 2007. A disappointing 5-5 season followed in 2008. The Lions bounced back to win the HCAC in 2009, but followed that with another .500 season in 2010. “We were very disappointed in last year,” head coach Rod Huber said. “We had to make some changes in the offseason.” Those changes included turnover in the coaching staff and on the roster. Huber enters his

twelfth season as MSJ’s head coach, and will be taking over defensive coordinator duties for the third different time. He brought back former Lions head coach Ron Corradini to serve as his co-defensive coordinator. “Some of our defensive coaches had the opportunity to move on, and it was the perfect opportunity for me to do what I love to do,” Huber said. It helps that Huber has faith in assistant head coach and offensive coordinator Vince Suriano to take care of the other side of the ball. “I can trust Vince to take half the team, and I can take the other half,” Huber said. “I’ve spent 28 years coaching defense. I’m ecstatic.” The Lions will put eight men in the box and bring pressure to stop the run, while playing a heavy zone in the back. The defensive line is led by Brett Hambrick (Elder), Adam Bigelow (Anderson), and Rob Fox (Colerain). Linebackers Tyler Hopperton

(Simon Kenton) and Jay Dolak will try to improve on last season. “Last year, we were the worst tackling team I’ve had in 21 years,” Huber said. “We were undisciplined. This year, we are focusing on being very disciplined and buying into the team concept.” The secondary is led by senior strong safety Derek Termuhlen (Milford), who will also be critical in the run defense. “He’s the quarterback of our defense,” Huber said. Termuhlen is eager to lead his unit and the rest of the Lions to a return to glory. He and his classmates are not satisfied with two .500 seasons in their first three years. They want to leave a championship legacy behind and win their second conference title. “I think we got complacent last year after having a 9-1 [regular] season,” Termuhlen said. “We didn’t work as hard in the offseason as we should have.” The hunger returned following

the disappointing 2010 campaign. Huber hired a full-time strength coach to push the players in offseason workouts. Roster changes were also made in the hopes of making addition by subtraction. “We let some kids go who didn’t want to put the team first,” said Huber. The offense has more question marks than the defense. Six quarterbacks enter camp competing for the starting role. It is too early to say who will be the starter. The Lions are looking for leadership and intelligence at the position. “Whoever can run our system the best will win the job,” said Huber. “The window of opportunity to throw is about half a second. We need someone who makes reads quickly.” Running back James Clay will carry the load early and often as the Lions break in their new starting signal-caller. “We’ve got to run the ball to

win,” said Huber. The play of the offensive line will be critical to pave the way for Clay and protect the inexperienced quarterback. Center Rob Bowman (New Richmond) and tackles Kory Bailey (Beechwood) and Joe Noble (Colerain) provide senior leadership up front. The Lions will be young at several key positions, but had a productive offseason and enter 2011 determined to regain their championship form. The Lions have made five playoff appearances in the last seven years, but are still looking for their first playoff win. The optimism and energy levels are high entering this season. “We’re excited,” Huber said. “We have young team. They don’t know what they don’t know yet.” The Lions opened the season Sept. 3, at Wilmington. They will play Thomas More College (JV) at 4:30 p.m., Monday, Sept. 12, at TMC.

TMC Saints football looks for 4-peat By Adam Turer

CRESTVIEW HILLS – The Thomas More Saints return 16 starters in their quest to repeat as Presidents’ Athletic Conference champions for the fourth straight season. The Saints have not lost a regular season contest since Nov. 8, 2008. This season, Thomas More will have even more motivation to continue its streak, as the Saints honor a fallen member of their family. Tony Merk sadly lost his battle with medulloblastoma July 4. The 6-year-old was adopted by the Saints as an honorary team captain prior to the 2010 season. He was often on the sideline, wearing his No. 7 Saints jersey. “We adopted Tony about a year and a half ago,” TMC head coach Jim Hilvert said. “He and his family have been motivating to our team.” The Saints will enter 2011 with heavy hearts, but plan to honor Tony the way they always have: By winning. Thomas More players will wear “TONY” decals on their helmets and have dedicated the 2011 season to the Merk family. Several players and coaches attended Tony’s funeral service. “It was an eye-opener for us,” Hilvert said. “Tony’s family members are heroes to us. Our guys understand how important Tony was and is to us.” Thomas More enters the season ranked No. 11 in the top 25. PAC coaches picked the Saints to four-peat as conference champs. An explosive offense and athletic defense should help the Saints reach, and possibly exceed, these lofty preseason expectations. Junior Rob Kues (NewCath) enters his second season as starting quarterback. The coaching staff has expanded the playbook for Kues and the talented playmakers surrounding him. The Saints feature three talented running backs in senior captain Kendall Owens (LaSalle) and sophomores Domonique Hayden and Adam Rauch. Owens and

Rauch are also receiving threats out of the backfield or the slot. “We are very, very excited about our offense this year,” Hilvert said. The skill players benefit from four returning starters on the offensive line, led by junior captain Jeremy Hoop (Glen Este). The pressure will be on Kues to take advantage of the protection in front of him and the athletic weapons around him. “He feels more comfortable in the offense,” Hilvert said. “We expect big things from him this year.” The defense will be based on athleticism and is eager to prove that the 62point loss their last time out was a fluke. Defensive end John French leads the front line. Jake Smith (NewCath) is expected to have a breakout year at defensive tackle. The linebackers are led by junior captain Nick Gramke (Elder) in the middle. The secondary is led by junior safety Zach Autenrieb (Elder) and senior cornerback Antonio Booker. Their intelligence fuels the Saints’ defense and allows them to be aggressive. “They are both very smart,” said Hilvert of the two captains. “Having Antonio is like having a coach on the field.” All-conference punter Aaron Walter (LaSalle) gives the Saints a special teams advantage. “He is a big-time difference maker for us,” Hilvert said. “He definitely changes games with field position.” The Saints have not lost a PAC game since Hilvert’s first season, in 2007. Thomas More has won a playoff game each of the past two seasons, but the program is eager to take the next step and advance past the Division III round of 16. Last season ended with a 69-7 loss to Mary HardinBaylor and left a bad taste in the Saints’ mouths. “The playoffs were a very humbling experience for us,” Hilvert said. “Our guys now know what it takes to be a top-five team in the country.” Thomas More opens the 2011 season at 1:30 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 10, at home against Hanover.


The College of Mount St. Joseph women’s volleyball team is conducting the Second Annual Charlie Wrublewski Tournament Sept. 9-10 in honor of Wrublewski, front center. The women's volleyball team is, in front, from left, are Jaclyn Stenger (Oak Hills), Michelle Woods (NewCath), Wrublewski, Jen Szekely and Torrie Whitmore. In middle are Janelle Davis, Amiee Sickmeier and Bethani Ritter (McAuley). In back are Melanie Monahan, Hannah Vanarsdall (McAuley), Brittany Loechel (Mt. Healthy), Dana Hirschbuehler, Sarah Scheid (Mercy), Michelle Webb (Deer Park), Nicole Sherpensky (Northwest) and Kat Roedig (McAuley).

Mount tourney honors beloved custodian Charlie Wrublewski never misses a College of Mount St. Joseph men’s or women’s volleyball match. He pulls out the bleachers, sets up chairs and makes sure the gym is in tip top shape for practices. In fact, there isn’t a Mount athletic team Wrublewski doesn’t support. He is the bell ringer at football games when the Lions score a touchdown. He attends basketball games, tennis matches and soccer games. He considers himself the “No. 1 Lions Fan.” Wrublewski, 69, a set up leader in the campus facilities department, has been with the Mount for 31 years. To honor his dedication to the teams and campus, the men’s and women’s volleyball teams both named separate tournaments for Wrublewski. The Second Annual Charlie Wrublewski Women’s Volleyball Tournament will be Sept. 9-10 at the Mount’s Harrington Center. The Mount will host three teams: Wittenberg, Heidelberg and Thomas More. Matches start at 5 p.m. on Friday and at 10 a.m. on Saturday. The men’s team will have its Charlie Wrublewski Tournament on Jan. 21-22. A complete schedule is available on the Mount’s website at “Charlie has always been a big help to the volleyball team,” said Jon Bennett, the Mount’s women’s and men’s head volleyball coach. “Charlie makes everyone feel welcome and

has an attitude of service first. Naming the tournament after him is our way of saying, ‘Thank you.’” Said Steve Radcliffe, the Mount’s athletic director,“Charlie’s not just a fan of the Mount’s sports teams, but our athletes are fans of his as well. He sets an excellent example of being a good leader and talks about the importance of sportsmanship at some of our sports banquets. Charlie shows our players how to be good, caring people.” Wrublewski said there was one time he missed a

match for a good reason: He was in the hospital. After the match, the women’s volleyball team went to visit him and share the match. “There was one volleyball game where a parent asked me if I had a daughter on the team,” said Wrublewski, a Harrison resident. “I said yes. I pointed to the court and said, ‘That’s her, and that’s her, and her, and her.’ They’re all my kids. I care about every one of them.” Wrublewski is well known around campus as well. He buys lunch for stu-

dents if he notices them not eating. He’s collected pop tabs to buy storage carts so the college doesn’t have to spend the money. Wrublewski said he’s proud of the Mount’s sports teams and students. “When I started at the Mount in 1980, there were only two sports: women’s volleyball and basketball. Men’s sports weren’t around then, of course,” Wrublewski said. “It’s changed a lot since then.”

Last week’s question

While individual Ohio school districts may continue to teach cursive writing, the new state common core curriculum no longer requires it. The focus will now be on keyboarding skills. What do you think of this? Are you glad, sad or indifferent that cursive writing will be fading into the horizon? “I hope the school districts keep the cursive writing courses. This course is great for the early grades. Keyboarding can be learned later. Reading Writing and Arithmetic used to be staples of education. Now it appears it is moving to texting, game consoles and smart phones. As computers have great spell and grammar check I wonder how long before those skills are considered expendable Go Figure!” T.D.T. “I am sure our Foundoing Fathers never dreamt of computers or cell phones. These times they are a-changing. We must be willing to change with them. One question though – how will the new generations ‘sign’ their signature? I guess they’ll have to print it.” A.P. “Wow!!! This is one of the toughest Chatroom questions ever. “I hate to see cursive writing fade into obscurity, but I want to be sure that my feelings aren’t based purely on nostalgia (and more on practicality). I’m one of the old codgers who still pays bills with handwritten checks, but the kids today probably won’t do that. “I’ve already learned how to write in cursive so it won’t hurt me. The same is true of my kids, though my grandkids (4 and 7) might be affected. “Short of an apocalyptic destruction of modern civilization as we know it, I don’t see us going back to the ‘old days’ in so many areas, so I can’t really say this is a bad thing. It just makes me feel kinda sad. If worse comes to worse, we can still print. Sigh ...” Bill B.

No jobs bill

Once again, Steve Chabot has unleashed rhetoric against our leader with little fact. Seems the House representative only talks but supplies no action. The house hasn’t passed one “jobs” bill since the recent election that put Republicans in control. Chabot’s comment about 100 new rules costing $100 million each, or $10 billion total is really questionable. That would translate to 153,846 jobs if it is all labor increases (using $65K average annual salary for family of four). Is Chabot defending the banks that put us in the great recession by eliminating the Dodd-Frank

bill? Or is he just defending big oil where he gets a large share of his contributions? Finally, risk takers don’t necessarily create jobs. Consumer demand and “built in the USA” create jobs. Risk takers sometimes make money. Terrell Stephens Colerain Township

Don’t judge disability

In reference Letter to the Editor, Northwest Press Aug. 31, 2011, “Lack of handicap parking is an issue,” submitted by Tino D. Thomas. I agree that there are individuals who miss use handi-

cap parking permits. I take issue at his statement that he has seen people do this with no one in the car having a disability. Unless one has x-ray vision there is no way to know if a person has a disability or not. You do not have to be in a wheel chair to be disabled. Heart problems, balance problems, back problems, and pain problems, just to name a few, cannot be seen by others. Be careful how you judge others. Richard W. Thompson Colerain Township

District talks about current finances On Aug. 8, the Northwest Board of Education passed a resolution to place a combined 3.5 mill (estimated $5.7million annual revenue) permanent operating levy and a $44 million (estimated 1.57 mills) bond issue levy on the November ballot. The operating levy money will be used to maintain and improve district programs. The bond issue money will be used to renovate both high schools. The levy costs to home owners are listed in the box. The operating money is needed to replace state funds due to the loss of federal stimulus money. According to current projections, state funds for Northwest will be cut by a minimum of $9.4 million over the next five years. If the levy does not pass, then we will have to make additional cuts to balance our budget. The Northwest Board of Education and the district leadership team will begin to develop the reduction package during the September 6 Board work session. There will be an opportunity for public input during the Sept. 12

“It just goes to show – we are becoming a rude, crude and unrefined nation. “What’s next?” M.D.D. “It’s a sign of the times. Keyboarding skills weren’t needed when most of us went to elementary school. Cursive was what our parents and grandparents had learned and valued. “My 20-something child doesn’t use cursive today, he prints. I’ve notice that in many 20-something’s writing. They were taught cursive, but learned as their education continued that they would handle the bulk of their correspondence on a keyboard during their lives, so cursive was no longer valued.” E.E.C. “I’d love to see what a signature looks like with no cursive!

There are several additional reasons that the Board of Education, on the recommendation of

Annual Cost 116.30 155.14 232.71

the district leadership team, decided to continue with plans to package a bond issue to renovate our high schools with the operating levy: • Old schools are not energy efficient and do not have the operational systems to support modern technology. Millions of dollars will be spent in unnecessary operational costs in the future if we do not renovate. • The older schools will require millions of dollars in maintenance projects in the future. • New and renovated schools are community resources and add to the value of the revitalization process currently in progress in this area. Current residents will stay in our community, and new residents could be attracted to move in to our community.

Monthly Weekly Cost Cost 9.70 2.24 12.93 2.99 19.39 4.48

We must renovate our high schools first because these are the students going directly to college and the work force and would therefore have the greatest need for 21st Century learning environments. • Now is the best time for construction projects because construction costs are low. During the next two months we will be providing additional information on the financial issues and the program improvement opportunities associated with this levy request.

It’s been 10 years since the terrorist attacks on the United States on Sept. 11, 2001. The community will remember the anniversary in a number of ways as the date approaches. REMEMBERING SEPT. 11, 2001

Living with the memories

“I’m trying to bring people to recall what happened ... and remind them of the impact.”

Chief carries piece of Trade Center By Kelly McBride

As Colerain Township resident Robert Rielage looks back over the 10 years since Sept. 11, 2001, he recalls how he views things just a bit differently. The terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York, as well as the hit to the Pentagon building and the crash of a plane in a Pennsylvania field, would have been enough. He came within a whisper of losing his own son that day. Rielage’s son, Dale, was a Naval lieutenant commander who was in the Pentagon building that day. He served as an executive assistant to an admiral in Naval intelligence and the pair had left the building 10 minutes earlier, and realized they’d forgotten some documents. Dale returned to the Pentagon, and was inside when the plane

hit. “He was within 100 feet of the impact area,” the senior Rielage said. “My son lost six co-workers when the plane bore down on the command center.” Dale, who was also a Virginia firefighter, had grabbed a pressure washer to fight flames as he tried to reach his co-workers. “He had to abandon his position right before the collapse of the outer ring of the building,” Bob said. “As glass started to fall, he realized he couldn’t do anything more. A crack in the wall allowed them to get out of the building.” Dale was one of 34 men and women who were awarded a commendation medal for their actions that day. Initially, Robert knew only that a plane hit the building where his son worked. “For the better part of 30 hours, we didn’t know where he was,” Robert said. The senior Rielage, who served for more than 20 years with the Colerain Township Fire Department, was serving as Ohio Fire Marshal at the time of the attacks. His day was made even worse when a distress call came in to the emergency operations center in Columbus, where he worked at the time. The plane that was fatally detoured by passengers to save

Schools salute police, firefighters at game Coalition having

community-wide 9/11 ceremony

By Jennie Key

When the Colerain and St. Xavier football game breaks at half time Sept. 9, the program will be about a lot more than who has the best marching band. In 2009, the Northwest Local School District kicked off a tradition of having a Sept. 11 remembrance ceremony at the home football game closest to Sept. 11 each year. The ceremony, honoring police and firefighters, alternates between Colerain and Northwest high schools. When possible, the schools combine marching bands and choirs to perform during the halftime. The district also performs a half-time salute to veterans at the game closest to Veterans Day, which alternates between the two school sites. This year, Colerain High School will host the 9/11 Salute, and Northwest High School will welcome the Veterans Day Program. Northwest Superintendent Rick Glatfelter said the district began talking about having the programs because the football games are some of the largest crowds that gather in the community. “That means the ceremonies are well-attended and it gives the communities a sense of togetherness for these important recognitions,” he said. The district invites the


In 2009, the Northwest Local School District started having an annual half-time ceremony honoring those who died and those who served during the 9/11 attacks. The program alternates between Northwest and Colerain high schools.

Honor guard units from the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, Green Township Fire Department, Colerain Township Police Department and the Colerain Township Department of Fire and Emergency Medical Services participated in opening ceremonies at the first Northwest district 9/11 salute.

the local men and women who put their lives on the line every day. “This is a good lesson for our students,” Glatfelter said. “The first year we had just lost two Colerain Township firefighters, and the ceremony focused on the people from our community and had more of a local focus. It’s important to recognize that we have people who put their lives on the line.” Colerain Township Assistant Administrator Frank Birkenhauer said the ceremonies are great opportunities for the largest entities that serve residents of the township to collaborate. “We are proud to be part of the 9/11 ceremony and the veteran’s ceremony at our local schools,” Birken-

hauer said. “It’s right that we get together to pay homage to our veterans and the safety service personnel who serve in our community every day.” Glatfelter said the ceremonies reflect an important part of students’ education as future citizens. “This is a part of citizenship training,” he said. “In our community, our young people tend to settle here. They will be citizens of the community for the next 40 or 50 years. We want our students to recognize they are part of a larger community and we have obligations and responsibilities and people to say thank you to. We are teaching our students the importance of being thankful for the sacrifices of others.”


bands and choirs of the opposing school to participate, as well as extending invitations to the fire and safety services of the schools’ communities to be part of the recognition. Invited to this year’s 9/11 ceremony are firefighters and police officers from Colerain, Green and Springfield townships. Glatfelter said the music departments at St. Xavier and Colerain have been working together, collaborating on the Sept. 9 program. The district asked police and fire personnel to guide the 9/11 program planning. “They wanted something simple and solemn,” he said. There will also be recognition of the terrorists acts performed on Sept. 11, 2001. The program focuses on

To mark the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, a broad coalition of religious, civic and education leaders has formed the local 9/11 Tenth Anniversary Commemoration Coalition to plan a community-wide observance. Focusing on the principles of democracy, freedom and justice for all, even in difficult times, the event theme is “9/11 Tenth Anniversary: Remembrance, Unity, Hope.” This tribute, which is free and open to the public, will be 3-4:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, with activities all day, at the Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal, 1301 Western Ave. The observance is meant to provide a way for the community to come together to remember the tragedy that impacted so many Americans, unify us as a diverse community and restore hope for the future of our country. The family-friendly event will include a series of activities and speakers including Cincinnati Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls, Cincinnati Fire Chief Richard Braun, an interfaith children’s choir, children’s orchestra, and a multi-religious prayer. The event will recognize those who lost their lives and those who performed acts of heroism during the 9/11 tragedy, including local fire-

fighters, police, military personnel and others. Themes of patriotism and interfaith collaboration will resound throughout the program of remembrance for those who were touched personally by the tragedy. The 9/11 Tenth Anniversary Commemoration Coalition is being chaired by Zeinab Schwen, Steve Sunderland and Homa Yavar. Organizations collaborating on this event include: the American Jewish Archives, Archdiocese of Cincinnati, BRIDGES for a Just Community, Cincinnati Human Relations Commission, Cincinnati Museum Center, Council on American Islamic Relations-Oh, Edward B. Brueggeman Center for Dialogue and Interfaith Community Engagement, both at Xavier University, Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati, Jewish Community Relations Council, League of United Latin American Citizens, Metropolitan Area Religious Coalition of Cincinnati, National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, Peace Village and University of Cincinnati, and the Unitarian Universalist Council of Greater Cincinnati.

Mount Healthy schools work to teach students about 9/11 By Jennie Key

Schools in the Mount Healthy City School District will have a variety of opportunities for students to learn and talk about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. North and South elementary schools are working together on a 9/11 tribute. Technologists Jason LaValle and Melissa McGahan are putting together a supply drive for soldiers in Afghanistan. “Our thought is to help students make a connection between

the war in Afghanistan and the events of Sept. 11, “ McGahan said. “We are working with the Yellow Ribbon Campaign and will be collecting supplies to donate for distribution.” The schools are collecting supplies through Sept. 11 and will take them to the Yellow Ribbon Center.

McGahan said the schools are also having a a cookie drive to show appreciation to local firefighters and police departments. The drive asks staff members to donate a dozen cookies on Sept. 8 for distribution to Mount Healthy, Springfield Township, Hamilton County and Colerain Township police and fire departments to thank them for what they do for their communities. McGahan said the final piece in the elementary schools’ 9/11 tribute is a short video that LaValle is working on with an introduction

to what significance the events of Sept. 11 have for the students, who were all too young to remember the terrorist attacks. McGahan and LaValle planned to interview staff and local firemen and police officers to reflect on where they were on the day of the attacks and how Sept. 11, 2001 impacted their lives. “Our hope is that teachers will share the short video with their students on Sept. 9,” McGahan said. A number of classes at Mount Healthy Junior/Senior High School

will talk about the events of 9/11 in connection with their subjects. For example, the social studies department will be leading discussions on the Constitution’s protection of individual rights versus national security. Mount Healthy Superintendent Lori Handler said many of the district’s students were yet born when 9/11 happened. “Our seniors were only 7 years old,” she said. “This is a good opportunity for us to spend some time reflecting.”

Garden peppers pop into a tasty Amish relish up! And speaking of bell peppers, my plants are bearing so abundantly that I’m chopping them up for the freezer and making this delish relish.

Rita’s Amish pepper relish

If you go to an Amish grocery, you’ll find the shelves lined with this kind of relish. It’s pricey and sells amazingly fast. Makes a nice gift from the garden and is better than any commercial relish. I store my relish with my other home canned goods in my pie antique pie safe.


Grind or process in food processor, blender, or chop fine by hand, enough peppers to make 6 cups and enough onions to make a generous cup, or more to taste. Put ground peppers and onions in a bowl and pour boiling water over just to cover. Let sit 5 minutes. Drain. Meanwhile, make brine.


2 cups vinegar, either cider or clear 11â „4 cups sugar, or to taste 11â „2 teaspoons each: mustard seeds, celery seeds and dry mustard


Peppers clean up in Rita’s sink while waiting to be turned into relish. Let boil for several minutes, then add drained pepper mixture into brine and cook for 8-10 minutes, until onions are cooked through. Meanwhile, have 6-7 canning jars, 8 oz each (or 4 pint jars) washed and kept in very hot water. Ditto with lids and seals. Drain water from jars and fill to first rim, wipe jars with clean, wet cloth on top to remove any residual pepper mixture (any food on top of the rim will cause a faulty seal). Process in boiling water bath 10 minutes. Even easier: instead of canning, let mixture cool and store in refrigerator for 2 months, or freeze up to 9-

Laine Barresi’s kid pleasin’ salmon

Laine is one of my sous chefs at Jungle Jim’s. During a recent class that featured salmon, she mentioned a recipe that her kids love. “It’s got a great texture and crunch!,� she told me. 4 salmon fillets Salt and pepper 1 bunch of green onions, chopped 1 box large pearl couscous or regular couscous, cooked 1 ⠄2 cup apple jelly 21⠄2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce Take 4 salmon filets, seasoned with salt, pepper and brushed with a scant bit of olive oil and place on a foil lined pan. Place under a broiler for 5-7 minutes (7-9 minutes if a thicker cut on high, keeping an eye on it so as to not burn them) While fillets are in oven, heat the apple jelly, rice wine vinegar and soy sauce in a sauce pan on medium, stirring until all melted together. About 6 minutes into broiling the salmon fillets, spoon on the glaze. Place back under broiler until the glaze is bubbly. Remove from broiler and serve hot on top of hot couscous with remaining glaze over top as well as the green onions.

JalapeĂąo lime butter for salmon or corn

For the reader who wanted something spicy and citrusy to dollop on grilled salmon. Pretty tasty on grilled corn, too. 1 stick unsalted butter, softened 1 tablespoon each: cilantro and jalapeno, minced or more to taste Lime juice: start with juice of 1⠄2 lime Mix all together. At first, it won’t blend real easy, but will come together eventually. Roll into a log and wrap. Chill or freeze until firm. Thaw a bit before serving.

I was talking to Dan Romito, producer for Fox 1 9 ’ s morning shows, about the recipe I published a while back for Western Southern’s Rita cafeteria’s Heikenfeld stuffed bell pep- Rita’s kitchen pers. Dan’s dad works at Western Southern, so Dan, a Kentucky reader, decided to try the recipe out. “I didn’t have the tomato sauce that the recipe called for, so I used a can of tomato bisque soup,� Dan told me. He usually doesn’t like bell peppers, but he really liked those. His wife, Stephanie enjoyed the peppers and daughters Jalen and Emma “ate them right up.� The same thing happened to Pat Harmon, a loyal reader, who took my shingled cheese recipe and used mozzarella and cream cheese. “It was a hit,� she said. That’s what I love about this column, when readers take a recipe and are adventurous enough to change it

September is the month to work on your turf September is here and that means turf month! What you do to your lawn this month (and fall) is the backbone to how well it can perform next year. So, let’s take a look at three very important things you could be doing – core aerating, seeding and feeding – and some other lawn tips.

Core aerate

A core aerator removes plugs from the soil, and deposits them on top. The cores (holes) help open the

soil for better water ⁄ fertilizer absorption, better airflow to the roots, and o o s e n Ron Wilson lheavy comIn the pacted soils. Do this garden annually if you have excessive foot traffic or heavy soils, and can be done spring or fall, as long as the lawn is actively growing. The plugs of soil dry, break down, and return

to the soil surface. Core aerating is not a necessity, but very helpful to most lawns. This is also an opportune time for lightly topdressing with a fine compost, earthworm castings, etc., and raking that into the open holes, adding organic matter to your soil! Core aerators available at many tool rentals.

Over seeding

Over seeding thinned lawns to help thicken the lawn is one of the best defenses against pesky weeds. Use a compatible seed, or the same seed as the existing grass. A seed slicer (slit seeder) will cut slices through the existing grass to help deposit the grass seed into the soil (very important for seed germination). For over seeding existing lawns use 1⁄2 normal seeding rates (full rates for new seeding). If slice seeding on bare soil, slice seed in at least 2 directions - N to S and E to W, using 1⁄2 the seeding rate amount for each direction. Slit seeders are available at many tool rentals.

Feed the lawn

For new seeding ⁄ over seeding, apply a starter fertilizer. It’s very important for the new grass and feeds the existing grass as well. For established lawns (no seeding) apply a high nitrogen fertilizer, like Fertilome’s Lawn Food plus Iron. September lawn feeding, along with a late fall feeding, are the two most important feedings of the entire year.

Good moisture is important!

The soil must have good

Most lawns in our area are usually a mix of bluegrass, perennial ryes and creeping red fescue, or turf type tall fescues. Not sure? Visit to help identify your existing grass. moisture to do these things. If it hasn’t rained, water the lawn deeply 2-3 days in advance. Also mow it two or three days in advance – the lower height makes it easier to perform aerating and seeding. Soil moisture is the key here in getting any of this to work. Be sure to maintain good moisture in the soil for the new seed to germinate, get growing, and keep growing. If you choose to wait to see if natural rainfall moves in before you aerate and seed, the later you wait, the more the window for opportune times for seeding lawns will close. I’m not saying that you cannot successfully seed in late September through mid October – you can. Many new lawns are established in the fall. But the earlier you can seed, the better the chances for the seed to germinate, grow and ready for the winter.

Weeds popping up

If you have a few weeds in the existing lawn, or some pop up after seeding, we’ll attack them late October (after the new grass is growing and mowed at least three times). The goal right now is getting the new grass growing, or the existing grass growing and filling in. Again, what you do to the lawn now really does help determine how well it can perform next year.

Which grass seed

Use the same seed as the existing grass or one that is compatible. Most lawns in our area are usually a mix of bluegrass, perennial ryes and creeping red fescue, or turf type tall fescues. Not sure? Visit to help identify your existing grass. Once you know, look for the seed to match. And if you’re wondering which is the “best” grass to grow, I’m not sure there is a “best” grass to grow, as it depends on the soil, light and foot traffic conditions, as well as the look you’d like your lawn to have. But for overall performance, sun and partial shade, I personally like the turf type tall fescue blends. One note on seed selection - if you have a bluegrass ⁄ rye mix lawn, do not over seed with the tall fescues and vice versa, unless the lawn is so thinned out you can barely tell grass is even growing. If you want to switch the type of lawn you have from one to another, kill the existing lawn with Roundup, Killzall or Espoma’s 4N1 Weed and Grass Killer first, and then reseed with your new turf selection.
