District continues to discuss potential cuts By Jennie Key

The Northwest board of education planned to make a final decision Sept. 12 about $2.4 million in cuts that will have to be made if the district can’t pass a levy during this school year. Board members were expected to vote on a plan after hearing public input at a hearing Sept. 12. That meeting was after the Northwest Press deadline. Visit www. concinnaticom/coleraintownship for the outcome. At a special meeting on Sept. 6, individual board members indicated they will support the recommendations of the administration as to what additional cuts would be made if the levy fails, but they did not take a vote. The board already approved an additional $1.2 million in cuts by cutting two administrative positions and classified staff and introducing blended online classes, which will reduce staff by 14 teachers. The administration hopes to

accomplish all of those cuts through attrition and these cuts will be effective Aug. 1 even if a levy passes. Superintendent Richard Glatfelter Glatfelter said if the levy fails, the district will need to make $2.4 million to $3 million in additional cuts for the 2012-13 school year next year, and the board wants to make sure the public knows what the plan is if the levy fails. The recommendations include increasing sizes in some core area high school classes, giving physical education credit for some extra curriculars and expanding the narrow grade range program. That would pair Bevis and Taylor and Struble and Weigel elementary schools, combining the student bodies of both, and then putting students in grades kindergarten through second in one building and students in third through fifth in the other.

All of these options would mean a reduction in staff. Also on the reduction list was: • a reduction in board-paid field trips; • changing bus routes which results in a fourth time zone for school starts; • reducing contract days for classified staff; • cutting nonpersonnel accounts, such as textbooks and cleaning supplies; • reduce extended day contracts; • reduce gifted and intervention services; • reduce custodian hours by closing buildings earlier; • increase pay to participate fees to $200 per activity; • cut three additional administrative positions; • reduce classified summer work days. The cuts would be effective Aug. 1 if a levy is not passed before then. If no levy passes, and funding remains the same, school officials said the district will have to cut

Levy by the numbers

The Northwest Local School District has placed a 5.07-mill combination levy on the Nov. 8 ballot. The levy includes 3.5 mills of new, permanent operating funds and a 1.4mill bond levy to renovate the district’s two high schools. The levy would raise about $5.78 million in new operating funds annually and the bond issue would generate about $44 million to renovate Colerain and Northwest high schools. The cost to the owner of a $100,000 home is estimated to be $155.14 annually. The ballot says the length of the bond project would be about five years and the maximum maturity for the bond is 37 years. $11 million in the next three years. Board members said they realize the cuts will have impact on the schools and the community. For example, they said, if buildings are closed earlier, fees to use facilities by outside groups will rise because staff will not already be on-site, and someone will have to be paid to be there. Board member Jim Detzel said he does not like to see the pay-toparticipate fees increase because, in a district with a growing poverty rate, it will mean some students cannot take part in after-school activities. “Everything we do will have an effect,” said board president Pam Detzel. The forum will be followed by the board’s regularly scheduled work session.

Colerain Park will echo with the oompah-pah of German Oktoberfest music next week, as the township welcomes the Hopfenblaeser group from Germany to the township for a community Oktoberfest. The concert will be Friday, Sept. 16, at the Colerain Park Amphitheater, 4725 Springdale Road. The concert is presented by the Colerain Township Parks and Services Department. At 6 p.m., the Germania Jagdhorn Blaesergruppe, a section of the Germania Society of Cincinnati, kicks off the festivities with traditional signals on Furst Pless and Parforce brass hunting horns from various locations. Parks and Services Director Kevin Schwartzhoff said a procession of flags will also be part of the kickoff ceremony. The German and American national anthems will end the opening ceremonies, and then a performance by the featured band, the Hopfenblaeser, will begin at about 7 p.m. The Hopfenblaeser group hails from the Allgaeu region in Bavaria, Germany. In 2006, a group of avid musicians from various villages in the Allgaeu got together and under the direction of Josef Felix, the leader of the Bay-

ernsoien Band, formed the original Hopfenblaeser band. Their repertoire consists of Bavarian polkas, marches and waltzes. They also play modern Blassmusik. They play at village festivals, wine festivals, birthday parties, weddings and blassmusik band meetings. In 2008 the band opened the world’s second biggest Oktoberfest in Cincinnati and also performed at the Mount Adams Oktoberfest, at the Hofbrauhaus in Newport, at Kolping and Old St. Mary’s Church.

Sophie’s Angel Run honors daughter’s memory By Kurt Backscheider

Missy Meinhardt said Sophie’s Angel Run started as a way to help her and her family through the grieving process. What the heartwarming event has become is simply overwhelming.

“It has grown into such a community event,” Meinhardt said. “The West Side community has come together and been so supportive. It’s a really neat and inspiring thing to see.” Missy and her husband, Mark, are once again honoring the memory of their

daughter, Sophia Grace Meinhardt, with a 5K run and walk that raises money for cancer research at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. The Green Township family’s fifth annual Sophie’s Angel Run will take place at 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 25, at St. Jude Church, in conjunction with the parish’s Oktoberfest. The Meinhardts received heartbreaking news five years ago. Their 18-monthold daughter had a brain tumor. Sophie passed away in August 2006 during the surgery to remove the tumor. “Losing a child is indescribable,” Missy said. “Consumed with overwhelming grief, we chose to become better from Sophie’s death rather than bitter. “We decided to turn our grief into something positive that would keep our daughter’s memory alive and also help other children

who are diagnosed with this devastating disease,” she said. Missy said Sophie’s brain tumor was an atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor, a very rare and aggressive brain tumor that grows rapidly within a month or two. There are no known causes for it and only 10 percent of children who have the advanced form of the tumor live more than five years after diagnosis. She said there are 3,750 new brain tumor diagnoses each year, which is about 10 children per day, and the 130 different types of brain tumors makes diagnosis and treatment very difficult. “There is a lack of awareness of pediatric brain tumors and a lack of funding for pediatric brain tumor research,” she said. “Funding for brain tumor research is vital to give children like Sophie a fighting chance to survive such a devastating diagnosis and

improve survivors’ quality of life.” Sophie’s Angel Run was founded to support more pediatric cancer research and help change those statistics, she said. In the past four years the event has raised more than $185,000 for brain tumor research at Children’s. The run has also allowed the Meinhardts to award $9,500 in scholarships to students at St. Jude School, where Sophie would have attended. “Her legacy lives on,” Missy said. “She is not forgotten.” Each year the run has grown, with more than 1,500 participants the first year, more than 1,700 participants the second year, more than 2,000 runners and walkers the third year and more than 2,400 last year. Missy said she and her family are grateful for the support they receive year after year.


Green Township residents Missy and Mark Meinhardt established Sophie’s Angel Run in memory of their daughter, Sophia. Each year the 5K run/walk has grown, which means the Meinhardts are able to raise more and more money for pediatric brain tumor research at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. “It has raised so much needed awareness for pediatric brain tumors,” she said. Still, their work is not complete. The Meinhardts invite everyone on the West Side to participate in this year’s run and help make the event another success.

How to reduce your “carbon footprint” and help the environment is on everyone’s minds these days. Most people are buying energy efficient appliances to help save on utility costs, but one of the most energy efficient “appliances” around can be found right in your front yard. According to a recent study by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the National Institute of Standers and Technology a properly positioned tree can reduce summertime costs by more than 5 percent, which could save you as much as $250 in yearly utility costs. Even more important, they found that a tree will reduce the carbon emissions of summertime electricity use by up to 31 percent. The USDA Department of Forestry also reports that a single acre of trees will absorb the same amount of carbon that can be produced by a car driving 26,000 miles. A tree is also one of the greatest assets in terms of the resale value of your home. Not only do trees increase curb appeal, they can add as much as 9 percent to the overall value of your home. Planting a tree in the right spot adds value to your home, reduced your utility bills and significantly helps the environment. What could be a better home improvement project than that?

Pigskin Preview scholarship honors Tony Merk

Tony Merk, 6, died July 4. He was not defined by his death, but by the gusto with which he lived. The youngster developed brain cancer – medulloblastma – at the age of 3. His courage inspired many area youngsters and their parents as they watched the struggle and followed the Merk family motto: Pray, Hope, Believe. La Salle High School, in partnership with the Merk family, has created the Tony Merk Memorial Scholarship Fund to keep the memory of the youngster’s spirit alive. This year, the Tony Merk Pigskin Preview, sponsored by the K-8 football programs at Our Lady of Grace, St. Ignatius and St. James, raised money for the Tony Merk Memorial Scholarship Fund at La Salle. The preview, Aug. 20-21 at La Salle’s Lancer Stadium, had 30 teams and more than 500 players participate. Teams that participated included St. James, St. John, Our Lady of Grace, Oak Hills and St. Susanna.


The varsity team from Our Lady of Grace scrimmages with the St. James seventh-grade team on Saturday afternoon during the Tony Merk Pigskin Preview. Tony’s brothers, Alex, a senior at La Salle High School, Ben, a freshman at La Salle High School and Max, a sixth-grader at Our Lady of Grace, and his parents, Rick and Lynne Merk, issued a statement about the scholarship before this year’s event. “We believe Catholic education, particularly a La Sallian education, is invaluable in developing strong

leaders and good Christian young adults. We have personally witnessed the strong character of La Sallian young men in the love and generosity they gave to Tony and our family. We also fully understand the expense involved in a Catholic education so are very pleased to have the opportunity to offset the costs of a La Sallian education for a young man who

La Salle is like family to us and we are excited about the opportunity to help welcome a young man into the family who might otherwise not be able to afford it. “We are thankful Tony’s inspiration can help give a young man the opportunity for a La Sallian education.

Dads bring kids to school on special day Students at Mt. Healthy South Elementary School welcomed some special visitors Sept. 6, as fathers, stepfathers, uncles, grandfathers, and great-grandfathers were encouraged to bring their students to school today in honor of National Fathers Take Your Children to School Day. South elementary technologist Melissa McGahan said many students were found walking hand in hand with themen in their lives who came to support them and be part of the event. She said they were greeted as

they brought their students and given a pledge to sign that promises that they will be involved in their children’s lives in order to achieve the best academic and social outcomes for their children. "Many men were happy to bring their child to school," McGahan said. "One father said his daughter lives with her mom, and he never gets invited to do anything with her at school, and thanked the school for including him, Yet another dad said very shyly and very simply, 'This is really nice.'

McAuley students give kids the world For the seventh consecutive year, 12 McAuley students headed to Kissimmee, Fla., in June to be part of a service immersion trip to Give Kids the World Village. Give Kids the World Village is a non-profit resort for children with life-threatening illnesses whose one wish is to visit central Florida’s best loved attractions. Children from all over the world come to the village to have their wishes come true. The students on the trip were: Sarah Pierce, Jamie Ducilli, Krista Issler, Katie Gutman, Megan Williams, Abby Kenner, Cara Walden, Jenn Rosenacker, Kelsey Heusmann, and Hailey Deyhle,

and they were accompanied by Patty Thomas, who works in the library and study hall, and Angela Ross, one of McAuley’s guidance counselors. It the first trip for Ross, who was impressed. “Imagine a place where you can eat ice cream for breakfast, have a pillow created with the help of a magical owl named Hermes, and getting into a pillow fight before being tucked into bed by a giant rabbit and his wife,” she said. “All of these dreams and so much more come to life every day at a magical village of Give Kids the World. “I was fortunate enough to be a part of the McAuley High School

group to volunteer here in early June. It was truly an incredible experience that our students and I will cherish for the rest of our lives.” Thomas agreed. “The trip was a life-changing experience for me, just seeing how these children and families accept and live through their painful journeys. “Also, it is rewarding to see them happy and smiling for one week of fun and knowing that they are just regular families on vacation having fun.” During their time at the village, the students served and cleaned up meals, interacted with the children, assisted with photos of the

children with the various Disney characters visiting the village, supervised the village carrousel, and treated the children to a Christmas parade (everyone’s favorite), just to name several of their tasks. Graduate Jenn Rosenacker, when asked what she learned from the trip, said, “I learned not to take life for granted.” Senior Kelsey Heusmann, said it was the best experience of her life. “I loved seeing everyone and how grateful they were,” she said. “I got more out of it than I ever thought I would and it’s truly indescribable how awesome it was.”

Lawson is Mount’s established scholar Timothy Lawson, Ph.D., professor and chair of the Department of Psychology, received the 2011 Established Scholar Award from the College of Mount St. Joseph. Presented to an associate or fulltime professor, the award honors the skills and contributions of an established scholar who has been nationally and/or internationally recognized for scholarly

achievement. Lawson has amassed a large body of research dedicated to the psychology of teaching. Most recently he conducted extensive research into the application of attribution theory to the area of humor research. His research into the spotlight effect was published in the international Journal, Basic and Applied Social Psychology.

Through the use of his book, “Statistical Reasoning in Everyday Life: Possibilities and Shortfalls,” Lawson has demonstrated that Mount students have improved their ability to utilize statistical reasoning in everyday life. He earned his master’s and doctorate degrees in social psychology from Miami University of Ohio and his bachelor’s degree in

On Aug. 24, Pleasant Run Middle Athletic Director Dan Hoard and Pleasant Run Middle School girls volleyball coach Ashley Carrier hosted their inaugural annual pre-season Trimatch with the three district middle schools. Pleasant Run, Colerain and White Oak Middle School seventh- and eighth-grade volleyball teams competed in this event. After a volleyball workout that provided an avenue to prepare for the upcoming season, the girls ate pizza while getting a chance to talk with each other and the perks of their particular school teams. “This was just another example of how our schools can come together as a district and work together to prepare for a wonderful Volleyball season,” Carrier said. “Thanks to the parent support and fans who cheered on their children.” • The Seventh Annual National Anthem Day and Sept. 11th Tribute will be at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14. About 1,000 students, teachers, staff and community members dressed in red, white, blue and gold plan to join in front of Pleasant Run Middle School at 11770 Pippin Road to sing the “Star Spangled Banner.” This tribute is part of the National Anthem Project led by the National Association for Music Education. Two out of three Americans don’t know the words to the Star Spangled Banner according to a Harris Poll. This national campaign was launched on the steps of the U.S. Capitol in 2005. This will be the seventh year for Pleasant Run M.S. to participate in this national event which has grown to include the U.C. ROTC Color Guard, Colerain Township fire and police departments as well as the Hamilton County Sheriff’s helicopter. This year’s event will have special significance as it coincides with national memorials marking the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11th attacks. Mark Hensler, music teacher at Pleasant Run Middle School will lead the sing-a-long.

Pleasant Run Elementary

Tonya Nicholls, fifth-grade teacher at Pleasant Run Elementary was awarded a Learning Links Grant from the Greater Cincinnati Foundation in the amount of $1000. Nicholls and her fifth-grade team will use the grant money to purchase items for their Fifth Grade Auction in June. The auction is part of an initiative for fifth graders to make wise choices academically and behaviorally and earn school money that they can spend to purchase items from the auction.

Northwest High School

Secretary of State of Ohio Jon Husted presented a certificate of commendation to Northwest High School History Teacher Joe Flickinger on the publication and release of his first book titled “A Bicentennial History of Green Township; Uncovering a Jewel in the Crown of the Queen City.” His book is the only comprehensive history of the township published to date. Flickinger worked with the Green Township Historical Association and their archives for more than two years to produce his book. Flickinger also recorded an interview in July for 91.7 FM WVXU’s Around Cincinnati program, which will be played on the program later this year. Husted commended Joe for “investing significant time, knowledge, dedication, and resources to record the history and heritage of Bridgetown, allowing generations to come to know the history as well.” Flickinger recently received the green light from his publisher to begin the pre-writing for a second book covering the history of Colerain Township.

Hunger doesn’t take a vacation was the campaign slogan for the Mount Healthy Alliance Food Pantry. With food drives and cash donations from area businesses, individuals and organizations, it met its mission and then some. “A lot has been happening at the pantry and for the Alliance this summer,” said Kathy Lorenz, operations supervisor. “We’ve been able to actually hire a part-time executive director, and the donations and help we’ve received lately has been nothing short of a miracle. It is a miracle really, but one that couldn’t have happened without our volunteers and the generosity of others.” Customers at the North College Hill Kroger store donated more than 825 pounds of food, personal and cleaning items, plus $235 in cash during a food drive there in July.

Touchdown Turner runs Knights to quick start By Nick Dudukovich

COLERAIN TWP. – The Northwest Knights have only played two games, but halfback Ron Turner has already done a lot of running. In the squad's first two contests of the year, Turner carried the ball 22 times for 326 yards and five touchdowns. If you're doing the math, that's an average of 14.8 yards per carry. Turner's numbers helped the Knights jump out to a 20 start, marking only the second time in the past eight seasons that Northwest has started it's season with two wins. It's those victories that are motivating Turner to keep running. "This is supposed to be our outbreak season for us to make the playoffs," Turner said. "And I think it's really important for me take on the leadership of this team...come Friday night." Northwest head coach Chad Murphy, who's coached high school football in Florida and at the Division II college level, described Turner as one of the biggest competitors he's ever seen. "No matter what it is, he wants to be the best and he competes that way," Murphy said. "He's definitely one of the most competitive guys I've ever been around." Turner said the fastest he's ever been clocked in the 40-yard dash is 4.4 seconds. That speed is evident in his ability to make the big play, as was the case in the week two win over Amelia, when both Turner touchdown runs were more than 50 yards. Turner said his success has been a result of the

Knights' offensive line, in addition to the emphasis the program has put on weightroom work. "It's made me stronger...and has improved my speed and my strength," Turner said. While Northwest will be tested once league play begins against Mount Healthy Sept. 30, Turner said he and his teammates have postseason expectations. Turner said he has his own goals in his quest to help the Knights end their 20-year playoff drought. "For myself, (my goal is) at least to score two touchdowns and have over 100 yards..." he said. While the playoffs are a team goal, Murphy said he

wants his team to examine their work ethic on a daily basis. "Everybody wants to talk about conference championships and the state playoffs... but it's more important to focus on what you're going to do to get yourself there and that's kind of what we've emphasized," he said. And from what prep fans have seen early on, Turner could be one that helps the Knights achieve their desired end results. "Nobody outworks (Ron)," Murphy said. "He's a tough kid and one of the most physical skill players I've been around. He doesn't take days off … he refuses to lose."

The Cardinals 61-game home winning streak, which dated back to 1999, ended in a clash between two of Greater Cincinnati’s top teams, Sept. 9. St. X kicker Nick Roemer made a 21-yard field goal with 3:57 left to provide the final margin. Colerain missed a 45yard field goal in the final minute. Colerain received stellar play from junior quarterback Alfred Ramsby, who rushed for 107 yards on 14 attempts, but other weapons in the Cardinals’ vaunted triple-option offense were unable to get the chains moving. Hurt by the season ending injury suffered by junior standout Chris Davis, Cardinal running backs Jackson Sorn, Detuan Smith, Curtis Jester and Trevon Hudson combined for 37 rushing yards on 21 attempts. St. X signal caller Griffin Dolle was effective moving the chains, going 15-of-21 for 180 yards. Bombers’ running back Conor Hundley was limited to 53 yards on 20 attempts, but his two touchdown runs of from inside the 5-yard line were the difference in the game.

Capano, who threw three interceptions in the contest, connected with Vogeltohl on a 58-yard pass in the first quarter, and again on a 36-yard pass in the third quarter to give the Lancers the lead heading into the fourth quarter.

Unanswered prayer led Hundley to St. X football

Injury in one sport leads to stardom in another for back By Ben Walpole

SPRINGFIELD TWP. – Fate has a funny way sometimes. Back in 2006, a seventhgrade gymnast from Ross named Conor Hundley suffered an ugly injury; he fell off the high bar, hurting his shoulder in the process. Hundley had just quit football so he could concentrate on gymnastics full time, training with the Queen City Gymnastics Club in Blue Ash. He was nationally ranked at his age level. He had dreams of earning a college scholarship for gymnastics, maybe even qualifying for the Olympics. And now here he was with a severely dislocated shoulder. “I did a lot of rehab,” Hundley remembered. “It takes a lot of time to get back into it, and it just wasn’t happening.” It was devastating. But

what seemed like an ending was, in fact, a mere beginning. Five years later, Hundley is a star running back for St. Xavier High School – one of the best players in the area, on one of the best teams in perhaps the nation. “I tell our younger guys, ‘You want to learn to practice? You watch Conor,’” St. Xavier head coach Steve Specht said. “He gets it. He practices as hard as he plays. “Just a tremendous, tremendous kid.” Hundley rejoined the football team at Queen Of Peace School in Millville as an eighth-grader. His gymnastics background helped to give him an inordinate amount of strength, so by the time he entered St. Xavier he was a solid 150 pounds. He worked in the weight room to add 35 more pounds before his sophomore year. Suddenly the former gymnast from Ross was in contention for a starting job in the Bomber backfield at age 15. “No one really knew what the depth chart was,” said Hundley, remembering


St. Xavier High School’s Conor Hundley stretches across the goal line for a Bomber touchdown against Colerain, Sept. 9. the week leading up to the Bombers’ 2009 season opener against Colerain. “We were all pretty equal.” In what would have to be considered one of the better coaching decisions in recent memory, Hundley got the starting nod. He responded with 161 yards rushing and two long touchdown runs in a 16-0 St. X win. “I ended up having a big game, and I’ve never looked back since,” Hundley said. Hundley wound up leading the Greater Catholic League in rushing as a sophomore. Last season he

helped lead the Bombers to the Division I regional finals with more than 1,500 yards and 19 touchdowns. “Conor’s gonna make you look good, even if you miss your block,” Specht said. “That’s a huge advantage when you have a kid like that lining up in your backfield. “He’s always been a very physical runner. With what I want to do offensively, you need a back that’s gonna be a pounding guy, someone who can carry it 20, 25 times a game. And that’s Conor.” If anything, Specht said

Hundley’s running style has only gotten more punishing this season. Specht calls him “a physical specimen.” He’s up to 5-foot-11, 205 pounds, and he’s worked to improve his strength, quickness and speed. Hundley made the rounds at the college camps last summer and was clocked at 4.5 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He’s still waiting for the Division I college scholarship offers, though. “I don’t know what it is,” Specht said. “I’m bewildered. Somebody’s gonna come away with a heck of a player, great team guy, great kid, great student. Someone’s gonna hit the jackpot.” In the meantime, Hundley is focused on his senior season. Back in the day he was a nationally ranked gymnast. Now he’s a member of a nationally ranked football team. All because of one fortuitously bad move on the high bar five years ago. “Thank God that it worked out the best way possible,” Hundley said. “Because I couldn’t picture myself doing anything else.”

Mike Schlomer returns to the sidelines to guide the Summit Country Day School volleyball squad for the 2011 season. Schlomer last coached the squad during the 2007 season. He stepped down to spend more time with his family. Now with his youngest ready to start school, the veteran coach has decided to get back into the game. “It’s nice getting back into the gym and getting onto the court and playing again,” Schlomer said. “I just love it. I love coaching.” Schlomer will try and navigate the Silver Knights through a Miami Valley Conference schedule that features tough opponents, such as Cincinnati Christian and Cincinnati Country Day School. Returning players from last year’s team include junior outside hitters Hannah Cunningham of Colerain Township and Morganne Harris of Anderson Township, junior middle hitter Gloria Beingana of Covedale, senior setter Sarah McBride of Villa Hills, Ky., and junior defensive specialist Claire Griffith of Turpin Hills. Cunningham and Harris figure to be a key part of the Silver Knights’ offense. “(Hannah’s) got a nice swing. She is going to be one of the center pieces of our offense,” Schlomer said. “Morganne has got a great, fast approach … she’s definitely going to be another weapon. I think my two outside hitters will be pretty strong.” The squad should also get some help from up-andcomers off of last year’s jun-

ior varsity team. At 6 feet tall, sophomore middle hitter Dana Thomas of Wyoming should make an impact at the net. “She can reach over nine feet for an attack. She’s just huge in the middle and when she gets timing down, she can control the middle with blocks,” Schlomer said. Freshman Jackie Noe of Middletown, who plays competitively year round, should also help Summit. While the Silver Knights work to reach the top of the MVC standings, the school will also have to prepare for moving up to the Division III volleyball level. This change means that the squad could face top Girls’ Greater Cincinnati League teams, such as Fenwick and Roger Bacon, come postseason time. “It should be a challenge,” Schlomer said. Despite the tough road ahead, Schlomer wants his team to leave a lasting memory with their play this season by advancing out of the sectional round of the state volleyball playoffs later this fall. “(We want) to make a name for ourselves with the Division III coaches,” Schlomer said. “If they don’t know my girls and they don’t show during (matches), my good players won’t get the recognition they deserve.” And while postseason success is on the school’s to-do-list, Schlomer would also like the squad to win the MVC title, which is something it hasn’t done since 2004. “It’s time to bring the title home,” he said.

President Obama wants Congress to pass another jobs bill “right now.” It is obvious that he either does not know the Constitution or wants to pretend that he is doing more than he is. The Constitution designed Congress in such a way that speed is nearly impossible. While the House can pass legislation quickly, the Senate deliberates, ponders, and then deliberates and ponders all over again. It frequently takes 60 votes to pass a bill in the Senate, and that is seldom an easy task. The founders presented us with a system designed to protect us from both government and ourselves. The purpose was that they knew the temptation of politicians to do too much. Government that has absolute power to do good also has the absolute power to do things that are hurtful. That has happened often recently. The federal government and its related bureaus have damaged the economy by creating uncertain situations for the way forward. Thus business is waiting until a

Congress must do its job

Congress is getting ready to reconvene. It is time for them to unite our country and be a nation for the people, not politicians. Congress needs to create or enforce our laws to eliminate funding of candidates by special interest groups. These groups are undermining our countries best interests. Without term limits we have career politicians that only lookout for themselves. They need to align their benefits with the rest of us. That means Medicare, social security and cost-of-living for them, like everyone else. Congress wants to judge American companies and other countries, yet they cannot run their own business. Only they can lead by example. Give us back the America that is best for all Americans! Larry Mussig Colerain Township

This week’s question

Last week’s question

While individual Ohio sc Should a replacement for the Brent Spence Bridge between Ohio and Kentucky be partially paid for by charging a toll? Why or why not? “I am assuming the current Brent Spence Bridge will be kept for local traffic. Therefore the charging of a toll makes sense for the new Interstate bridge. Frequent users of the bridge would have the window sticker that allows quick entry to the toll area. “Plus this puts the burden on the real users of the bridge. Toledo put up a beautiful Cable Stayed Bridge and kept the former I-280 bridge for local traffic. “Perhaps that setup could be used as a model for this effort. Instead of naming the bridge after some politician why not sell the naming rights? It works for stadiums and ball parks etc. Go Figure!”

from Cincy to Dayton was once second only to a short stretch in New York City. In my travels I’ve seen impressive toll-free bridges serving smaller communities such as New Orleans, St. Petersburg to Bradenton, Florida, and Brunswick, Georgia. If Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana congressional representatives cannot convince Congress a replacement bridge is needed that will benefit millions of people and businesses, they should recruit additional support from Michigan. To avoid paying a toll, motorists will put a tremendous load on the Combs-Hale Bridge. That will cause havoc in eastern Cincinnati.” R.V.

“There should be no toll on any interstate highway bridge crossing the Ohio River. Interstate 75 is one of the most heavily traveled highways in America. The stretch

“No toll bridge. Traffic is bad enough under normal conditions, and toll booths will cause a continuous back up and bring on ill feelings.” O.H.R.

County park district making good use of levy funds In May 2002, Hamilton County voters approved a 15-year, 1mill property tax levy to support the Hamilton County Park District. The replacement levy took effect in January 2003. The board, staff and volunteers of the Park District are deeply committed to providing the highest quality parks, facilities and programs. Since we are just over halfway through this levy term, we’d like to take this opportunity to update the residents on their Hamilton County Park District. Since 2003, the park district has protected 1,997 acres of additional greenspace, leveraging levy funds along with over $6.8 million in grants from the Clean Ohio Conservation Fund. As of December 2010, the total greenspace preserved by the Hamilton County Park District is 16,562 acres. The park district manages 21 parks and nature preserves and hosts approximately 7.5 million guest visits per year. One of the park district’s levy commitments is to work with appropriate park, recreation and public authorities to protect greenspace and provide outdoor recreation and education. In 2003, we began a joint venture with the Cincinnati Park Board to renovate Fernbank Park in Sayler Park along the Ohio River. This park has undergone a dramatic transformation with expanded walking trails, a new accessible playground, a restroom facility, shelters and the development of Fernbank Lodge. In 2006, we partnered with the city of Cincinnati, Cincinnati Recreation Commission and the Cincinnati Park Board to develop the Otto Armleder Memorial Park and Recreation Complex in Lin-

Joseph C. Seta, Robert A. Goering, John T. Reis Community Press guest columnists wood. Armleder is now best known for its immensely popular 10-acre dog park, as well as soccer fields, a paved trail and a canoe / kayak launch accessing the Little Miami River. The park district has invested in several trail systems throughout the county. Most notably, we have worked with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources to expand the Little Miami Scenic Trail from Milford to the Little Miami Golf Center in Newtown. This 4.5-mile section opened in 2005 and includes the Avoca Trailhead which offers parking, restrooms and a shelter for trail users. The ultimate goal is to connect this trail to Lunken Playfield and then downtown Cincinnati. A four-mile mountain bike trail opened at Mitchell Memorial Forest in 2008; this year, it will be expanded to eight miles thanks to a $25,560 grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Recreational Trails Program. Other major outdoor recreation advancements include the expan-

Sometimes your presence is all that’s needed In the recent season finale of Grey’s Anatomy, a plane crash occurs. Throughout the episode, the story reveals that only one person survives the plane crash: an unaccompanied minor. Her mother has not yet arrived in the waiting room. The family members of the deceased decide to stick around while the child has surgery. As a mother of the deceased says, “She doesn’t have anyone. I think we should stay.” Even in their grief, a handful of family members of the victims remain in the waiting room, possibly praying, possibly just being a nearby presence. When the child’s mother arrives, those family members stay with her until the child is out of surgery. As a common theme in many Grey’s Anatomy episodes, we see that being a presence brings peace in the midst of a storm. How many times in our lives have we had a friend or family member just sit with us as we grieved? What type of peace did their presence bring to our hearts? For those of us in the Christian tradition, we can find this pastoral presence in John 19:25-27. A few of Jesus’ friends including Mary Magdalene, his mother, and his beloved friend are “standing near the cross.” Did they say anything to him? We can’t be sure. Maybe in seeing

Rev. Michelle Torigian Community Press guest columnist

his loved ones standing nearby, Jesus experienced extra peace in those painful last few moments. Presence is encouraged by Jesus as well. As he hung on the cross, he expresses to his mother and friend to take care of one

another. One of the greatest privileges of being a pastor is sitting with a family in their grief or as they deal with an illness. Through my experience, I’ve noticed that having the “perfect” words to say to someone as they cry or worry is not my main focus. Being in the room with those in sorrow is the start. In my belief, God will then help me find words that bring comfort. If we worry about having the right words for our loved ones suffering, does that keep us away from being at their sides? You may ask “What should I say?” No special theological or pastoral training is needed to be a presence. For anyone who may not have perfect words, acknowledging our loved one’s pain and sitting with them are all that is needed. Often, no words communicate more love

sion of the Winton Woods Campground, the renovation of the par 3 course at Little Miami Golf Center, upgrades to the Miami Whitewater Forest Golf Course, and new playgrounds at Lake Isabella, Woodland Mound, Embshoff Woods and Parky’s Farm in Winton Woods. In 2006, the Park District opened Campbell Lakes Preserve, which features four lakes for fishing, kayaking and canoeing. As the Hamilton County Park District continues to fulfill its levy commitments, it sees a very promising future in protecting greenspace and enhancing education and recreation opportunities. Thanks to dedicated staff, volunteers and strong partnerships, the park district will work diligently for the residents of Hamilton County to provide enjoyable regional parks and nature preserves. Robert A. Goering, John T. Reis and Joseph C. Seta are members of the Board of Park Commissioners, Hamilton County Park District.

Silence is more comforting than justifying what has happened. Our listening ears are the greatest value to a person who hurts even when our tongues say nothing. Being a presence is working through our discomfort and attending a visitation to hug a friend who has lost a parent, spouse, or child. We have the chance to bring comfort and company to our friend isolated at home as they struggle through a physical or emotional ailment. Whatever our faith may entail, our Creator and Sustainer will continue to bring us peace as we pass that peace forward. The Rev. Michelle Torigian is the pastor at St. Paul United Church of Christ on Old Blue Rock Road.

Police officers and firefighters from Colerain, Springfield and Green townships and the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office were recognized on the field at halftime for their service to the Northwest school district community.

Community remembers 9/11 Members of the Naval Jr. ROTC from Butler Tech at the Northwest High School campus formed an honor guard, saluting police and firefighters as they took the field at halftime to be honored. Participants included Brian Rothert, Anthony May, Zach Kummer, Dane Newman, Amir Gannt, James Mills, David Howard and Ahmad Pouncey.

The community honored safety service personnel at the annual 9/11 ceremony presented by the Northwest Local School District. Each year, at the game closest to the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, the district recognizes the dedication, service and sacrifices made by police and firefighters.

The Colerain High School Marching Band prepared to meet the St. X Marching Band on the field during the half-time recognition ceremonies for a combined performance.

Two honor guards, one from local police and safety service organizations, the other from the Naval Junior ROTC at Northwest campus Butler Tech, helped kick things during the National Anthem and other opening ceremonies at the Sept. 9 game.

This honor guard included representatives from the Springfield Township Police Department, Colerain Township Police Department, Colerain Township Department of Fire and Emergency Medical Services and the Green Township Police Department.

The Colerain Choir and a combined band performed at halftime, as area firefighters and police officers were honored for their service during the annual 9/11 ceremony presented by the Northwest Local School District.

Half-time ceremonies at the Sept. 9 football game between Colerain and St. X high schools included performances by the Colerain High School Choir and a combined Colerain/St. X band. The Northwest Board of Education honored area police and firefighters and there was a moment of silence for Colerain firefighters who have died in the line of duty.

Potato salad warms up chilly early fall days Handful of fresh chopped parsley (optional) 1-2 teaspoons celery seed About 8 cups potatoes, boiled just until crisp tender, and cut into 1⁄4” slices or so

When I went for my morning run today, I had to put on a l o n g sleeved shirt and sweatpants. M y w h o l e family is Rita loving this Heikenfeld w e a t h e r, but I’m Rita’s kitchen r e s i s t i n g the fact that autumn is almost here. I know fall is coming by the emails from you, my Community Press family. The requests for chili recipes and soups are pouring in, along with Oktoberfest requests. Oktoberfest promises to be one of the best ever this year on Fountain Square Sept. 16-18. Check for details.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. After you sauté the bacon, leave some fat in the skillet and add celery and onion and cook for a few minutes. Add flour, salt and pepper and cook a couple minutes longer. Then add the sugar, vinegar, and water all together, stirring with a whisk. If it’s a bit lumpy, don’t worry – it will get smooth. Bring to a boil and cook 1 minute. Add parsley, celery seed and about half the bacon. Combine and remove from heat. Place potatoes in sprayed large casserole. Pour dressing over all and mix very gently so potatoes don’t break up. Bake about 35 minutes or until bubbly. Sprinkle with rest of bacon. Serves eight to 12.

Baked German potato salad for Oktoberfest

I will always remember Clara’s German potato salad. She was my husband, Frank’s, mother and she made a great German potato salad, as did Frank’s Aunt Marg. Of course, there was no “recipe.” I can make a decent German potato salad, too, but couldn’t tell you exactly how much of any one ingredient is in it. It’s a “to taste” sort of thing. So I was happy to get this twist on a classic recipe from a friend several years ago. It’s good warm, room temperature or chilled. Add more vinegar for a more tart flavor, or more sugar if you like it sweeter.

Rita’s 2-way Reubens

The Heritage Restaurant, where Frank was the general manager, served an awesome grilled Reuben sandwich. I could eat my weight in those sandwiches. What I like about the recipe I’m sharing now is that it does double duty. It’s delicious as a spread with rye crackers or as a filling for a Reuben. Another bonus is that the mixture freezes well for a month or so. You can divide the recipe in half if you like.


⁄2 to 1 pound diced sautéed bacon (We love bacon so I use almost a pound) 1 cup chopped celery, or more to taste 1 generous cup chopped onion, or more to taste 3 tablespoons flour Salt and pepper to taste 2 ⁄3 cup sugar 2 ⁄3 cup cider vinegar 1 to 11⁄2 cups water

1 pound real deli corned beef, chopped or shredded 1 generous cup mayonnaise 2 cups each shredded cheddar and Swiss or Gruyere 1 pound sauerkraut, rinsed and drained very well Dash or two of caraway seeds (opt) Handful chopped parsley (opt.)

DONATE YOUR CAR Wheels For Wishes Benefiting

Thousand Island or Russian dressing and dill pickles for serving alongside Mix the corned beef and mayonnaise together. Add the cheeses and mix well. Add sauerkraut, caraway seeds and parsley and mix again. Spray a casserole dish and bake in preheated 350 degree oven, uncovered, for 40 to 50 minutes or until bubbly. Or microwave on medium until hot throughout. My favorite is as a filling for grilled Reubens. We like the Reubens on dark rye.

We’ve come a long way, ladies. For more than a few generations, the women in our families have just learned to live with pelvic floor disorders. Many things can cause this disorder, but it’s more common after childbirth — when the pelvic muscles and nerves are weakened. This can lead to embarrassing control issues. Pain. (Not to mention the effect on intimacy.) If that’s you, you’re not alone. And you should know, there’s no need to live with pelvic floor issues anymore. Many women have regained control thanks to The Christ Hospital Center for Pelvic Floor Disorders, one of the only centers in the nation of its kind. Our team of physicians and experts are sensitive to the embarrassment many women feel and are highly specialized, working together to offer new treatments and techniques, including non-invasive options and minimally invasive surgery, to help women find relief.

Wiffle Ball helping Pink Ribbon Girls It’s plastic; it’s perforated and it’s known for backyard fun. It’s Wiffle Ball. And if Cincinnati breast cancer organization, Pink Ribbon Girls have it their way, the Wiffle Ball will also be known as a way to raise money for the awareness of breast cancer. This year’s Pink Ribbon Girls seventh annual Family Wiffle Ball

event is in honor of all breast cancer survivors because the organization is turning 10 years old this fall. It will be 4-11 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, at Kuliga Park, 6717 Bridgetown Road. All proceeds benefit Pink Ribbon Girls (PRG), a local organization that provides a support network for

young women with breast cancer. The idea for the fundraiser sprang from a childhood friendship between Mike Fieler and Tracie Metzger, PRG’s co-founder and executive director. The two attended Our Lady of Visitation School in Bridgetown and today their children attend the school and many

of the same activities together. In the past, the Fielers have hosted all-male Wiffle Ball tournaments on their five acres of property, but over the past five years, have decided to open it up to families and friends for a good cause. “We can’t believe how far this event has come over the last six years. The success we’ve had in not only raising money for Pink Ribbon Girls, but also in creat-

Investigate cause of foundation movement Concrete foundation walls can move up, down, in or out. There are many types of causes for foundation movement. Consult an independent professional engineer to investigate the cause of the movement and to determine the cost effective method of repair, if repair is even necessary. There are several common signs of foundation walls leaning inward. Exterior indications of this inward foundation movement can be seen if the exterior wall supported on top of the foundation wall overhangs the center of the foundation wall more noticeably than at the ends of the foundation wall. Homes that have brick veneer or brick exterior may chip off the exterior face of the top of the concrete foundation wall. Some of the typical interior signs of the foundation wall leaning inward may be buckled ceilings, interior basement doors rubbing the door frames, basement doors not closing and often the space between the foundation wall and the vertical plumbing piping getting smaller towards the top of the wall. Concrete foundation walls that lean inward are normally due to excessive unbalanced soil pressure and the foundation not being anchored to the floor framing. Concrete foundation walls are not self-supporting retaining walls and the top of the foundation wall relies on the floor framing to stabilize the top of the wall. Indications of this type of inward movement are interior diagonal cracks towards the ends of the walls and interior vertical cracks nearer the center of the wall. Foundation walls may not be full-height with split level homes or the top of the left or right side foundation wall being stepped down to follow a sloping lot. If the concrete foundation wall extends sufficiently below the lower level concrete slab, the concrete slab may provide satisfactory bracing of the foundation wall to

prevent the foundation wall from l e a n i n g inward. O n e cause of concrete Michael f o u n d a t i o n Montgomery walls leanCommunity ing outward be due Press guest may to exterior columnist porches or porch slabs anchored to the basement foundation wall. Concrete porches and porch slabs normally do not have any foundation or are supported on a shallow foundation. Concrete porches attached to concrete foundation walls may cause a smiley face type of crack on the interior side of the wall that the porch is attached to or may cause vertical cracks in adjoining walls. Less common causes of foundation walls leaning inward or outward may be foundation settlement, landslides or land slippage. Considerations the engineer will use to design the appropriate method of repair will include the cause of movement and the layout of the lot. For instance, repairing one wall when the opposite wall is mostly above ground may cause the whole house to lean. An independent professional engineer should inspect the house to determine the actual cause and present the most cost effective method of repair. Engineering design plans or details allows the homeowner to get multiple contractors to bid the same scope of work and provide professional documentation when selling the home. Relying on a salesman from a contractor may be very expensive and not necessarily the appropriate repair. Engineers are designers and contractors are installers.

Gannett News Serice Peter Minor’s work ethic was strong - he missed only three days of work in 41 years. To pay homage to his dedication and in r e m e m brance, his employer named its auditorium in his honor. M i n o r , Minor 66, of White Oak, was facilities manager at Beckfield College in Florence and had worked there post-retirement for over six years. On April 8, he was struck and killed by a passing motorist as he changed a flat tire on Interstate 71/75 in Erlanger, while on his way to work at Beckfield. Beckfield College honored Minor by planting a tree in his name and dedicating the auditorium as the Pete Minor Memorial Auditorium. “We wanted to try to find a way to honor him that would keep him in the forefront of everyone’s minds,” said Diane Wolfer, president of Beckfield College. “Pete was so much a part of everyone’s daily lives. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t miss his smile.” Peter’s son, Shannon Minor, said he feels like the memorial will help with the grieving process.

“This will recognize his life and what he stood for,” Shannon said. “That’s why they’re dedicating it, because of his work ethic and what he meant to the school.” Shannon Minor, who was a standout basketball

player at Northern Kentucky University and Colerain High School, said his dad was very supportive of him. His father was able to witness his induction into NKU’s Hall of Fame in February and now Shannon said it is his father’s turn to

be recognized. “This is like his hall of fame,” Shannon said of the memorial. “There’s a lot of symbolism in the tree being planted, the growth of a tree. It is something that will be around for a long time.”

Dress for Success opening College Hill boutique


Mary Ivers, founder of the Dress for Success nonprofit foundation, lends a hand with other volunteers in getting the group’s 4th Street Boutique College Hill ready to open Sept. 8.


Sandy Hart, Finneytown, makes sure a mannequin is accessorized to show off the merchandise at the 4th Street Boutique College Hill. Hart is a volunteer with the Dress for Success nonprofit foundation and its boutique.


Maureen Sayre, left, and Sheri Auttonberry, get racks of clothing ready to sell at the 4th Street Boutique College Hill. Auttonberry, is the board chair of the boutique, a fundraising operation of Dress For Success.

Dress for Success is more than a motto. It’s a mission. Volunteers and staff for the nonprofit organization are bringing that mission to College Hill to help keep their efforts going. Founded by Mary Ivers, Mount Lookout, Dress for Success helps women have the appropriate clothing and skills to tackle job interviews. “I was in a semi-retired position, looking for an opportunity to help others and ended up bringing Dress for Success to Cincinnati,” Ivers said. After establishing the foundation, Ivers and her small staff and larger roster of volunteers opened the 4th Street Boutique. It sells donated, highquality clothing that doesn’t meet the fashion needs of the women preparing for the work force. “We wanted to bring a shop like we have downtown into the community,” said Maureen Sayre, a Dress for Success board member and Green Township resident. “We wanted a neighborhood that had a diversity of income and race, and a community ready to support our mission. “We found all of that and more here in College Hill. There is so much energy here and people have gone out of their way to help us and make us feel welcome.” While the counseling

Proceeds from the boutique, 5838 Hamilton Ave., will go directly to Dress for Success. Sandy Hart, Finneytown, makes sure a mannequin is accessorize to show off the merchandise at the 4th Street Boutique College Hill. Hart is a volunteer with the Dress for Success nonprofit foundation and its boutique. Heidi Fallon/Staff The shop will be open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Clothing donations are accepted during those hours as well. Kelly Collison, a Sycamore Township woman on the organization board, said the women she helps Dress for Success are referred by a variety of social agencies. “They are all ages with different levels of skills or none at all,” she said. “They may be returning to the work force or may never have had a job. They may be coming from an abusive situation, be battling addictions or be in the court system; but self-

esteem is their biggest hurdle. “We help them set up job interviews, build a resume, have mock job interviews and coach them on the

interview process. The biggest mistake anyone interviewing for a job is not dress appropriately.” For more information, call 651-3372.
