Colerain hires new zoning administrator

By Jennie Key Brooke Beischel can barely contain her excitement as she skips through the front doors of Atria Northgate Park. She is on a mission: find her people. She has fans at Atria. They gather each week to listen to the 7-year-old second-grader read to them. “I like to read,” she confides as she unloads a tote full of books and games for her Atria friends. Brooke’s grandmother, Colerain Township resident Eve Beischel, says she came up with the idea of reading aloud to residents at Atria as a way to keep Brooke’s new reading skills sharp during the summer away

A group of churches in the Northwest area of Colerain and Springfield townships has formed a coalition to better serve the community and group members are planning an event to practice what they preach. Nancy Broerman said the coalition, which formed a little more than two years ago includes John Wesley Methodist, Augsburg Lutheran, St. John Neumann and her congregation, Pleasant Run Presbyterian. “We formed this for the purpose of being better able to help people in our community by combining our resources,” she said. “It has been so wonderful to see these different denominations working together.” Groups formed from all four coalition churches will have a blitz of service called InAsMuch, referencing the Matthew passage that says, “In as much you have done it to one of the least of my brothers, you have done it to me.” InAsMuch is Saturday, Sept. 22. This is the second year for the event. The day’s activities will include a smorgasbord of service. Volunteers will give away hot dog


Colerain Township has a new zoning administrator. Trustees approved the hiring of Geoffrey Milz at the Sept. 11 board meeting. Milz replaces former zoning administrator Susan Roschke, who resigned Aug. 13. His employment begins Monday, Oct. 8, and his annual salary will be $72,500 to be increased to $75,000 effective Jan. 1, contingent on a satisfactory performance evaluation. Milz was selected from a field of about 25 applicants, according to Colerain Administrator James Rowan. “Mr. Milz comes to us with enthusiasm and excitement. He is very customer-service oriented, very engaging,” Rowan said. He said Milz is a Cincinnati native currently serving as the sen-

ior planner for Cayuga County, N.Y., in the Department of Planning and Zoning. Milz has a master’s degree in community planning from the University of Cincinnati and is certified as an AICP with the American Institute of Certified Planners. He is also a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professional. The certification program was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council to set a benchmark for design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings. Rowan said Milz is formerly from College Hill. Milz was not available for comment. The township will set up a reception to introduce Milz once he arrives. Board President Jeff Ritter said he was pleased at the speed with which the position was filled. “We certainly didn’t have the vacancy very long,” he said.

Volunteers also plan to work at One Way Farm in the gift/thrift store assisting in changing from summer items to winter as well as weeding in the Day Lily field. “We will also be at a couple of laundromats to pay for people’s laundry,” Broerman said. “We thought that a positive day like this would be good news.” Broerman said the coalition has also planned picnics and other events together, including joint Good Friday services. “It is good the churches get along so well, and the pastors work together,” she said. “I think that’s how it was always meant to be.”

Green Twp. hires new police officer By Kurt Backscheider

The Green Township Police Department has a new officer on the force. The board of trustees unanimously approved a resolution Monday, Sept. 10, authorizing the hiring of Jacob Richmond as a township police officer. Richmond, an Elder High School graduate who lives in Green Township, began his career in law enforcement with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office. Green Township Trustee Rocky Boiman said Richmond started out working at the county justice center as a corrections officer, and in his spare time he completed the sheriff’s basic training academy. Boiman said Richmond was promoted to the sheriff’s road patrol in September 2011, and was assigned to Green Township. “In his time here Jake has earned the respect of his co-workers and supervisors,” Boiman said.

Jacob Richmond is sworn in as the Green Township Police Department’s newest police officer. The township trustees approved Richmond’s hiring at the board meeting Monday, Sept. 10. THANKS TO GREEN TOWNSHIP The township hired Richmond to replace police officer Scott Hamilton, who retired in January. He will earn an annual salary of $53,411. Richmond thanked the trustees, the administration and Police Chief Bart West for the opportunity. “I’m very thankful and excited to serve Green Township,” Richmond said. “I’m looking forward to my career here, as well as serving my communi-

ty.” West said Richmond has done a great job patrolling the township for the sheriff’s office, and he’s heard nothing but positive feedback from residents and officers who have worked with him. “We’re really excited to have him on board,” West said. “He’s a good guy, and he’s real nice in working with the public.”

from the classroom. The retirement center is not far from her home. So each week Brooke and her brother, 5-year-old Jaxon, have played games and gotten to know a group of residents at Atria. And Brooke reads. She picks the books from a selection her grandma has. Today’s selection is apt. As she reads “A Quarter From the Tooth Fairy,” her smile is accentuated by the absence of her own front teeth. The gap does nothing to dim the brightness of the smile she flashes at her listeners as she reads to them. The smiles that come back are just as bright. When she comes to a word she doesn’t know, she asks for help unselfconsciously. Grandma says the confidence Brooke has gained over the summer was an unexpected dividend. “She is very comfortable speaking or reading in front of people and I think that’s good,” Beischel said. “She was reading above grade level and I wanted her to keep that. Her reading has actually gotten better this summer.” Rita Koepfle says she enjoys Brooke’s reading. “She has gotten better over the summer. And you can see they are excited to be

here, too. ” As the summer draws to a close, the schedule for the weekly reading is changing to accommodate Brooke’s school schedule. It’s a small group for the first aftersummer gathering, but they are dedicated fans. Filomena Ciamarra and Mary Chrysovergis joined Rita for a game of I Spy with Brooke and Jaxon, and then hung on every word as Brooke read, smiling, nodding encouragement and clapping with enthusiasm when she finished. Brooke says the book she most enjoyed reading to the group was “Have You Filled A Bucket Today?” The book by Carol McCloud, subtitled “A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids,” talks about how satisfying it is to do things that make other people feel good about themselves. She got the message. “I like to read to people,” Brooke said. “They like it and it really makes me feel good, too. It’s like the book. It talks about how you should try to fill a person’s invisible bucket by doing nice things. I want to fill the buckets.” Lots of full buckets here. Eve Beischel says she’s going to tinker with the schedule to find a time slot that works after school. “It’s almost a service project in a way,” she said. “And that’s not a bad thing for kids, either.”

Ruah Woods growing in Green Township


By Kurt Backscheider

Ruah Woods is expanding its Green Township headquarters. Board members, staff, volunteers and supporters of the organization recently gathered to celebrate a groundbreaking for the construction of a new building on its campus at the corner of Rybolt and Wesselman roads. Ruah Woods, a lay Catholic ministry that promotes the church’s teaching of the Theology of the Body, is building a new twostory Evangelization Center next to its existing office building. “We really need more space,” said Leslie Kuhlman, executive director of the organization. “We have grown so much since opening our doors in 2009.” She said the new building will include a 99-seat amphitheater, several meeting rooms, the organization’s administrative offices, a coffee bar and a green, environmentallyfriendly roof. The building will host Theology of the Body classes, presentations, discussion groups and activities, and also other programs sponsored by area churches and community groups, she said. “We have been blessed to have developed a great working relationship with the Archdiocese of Cincinnati as well as a number of Catholic high schools, parishes and the Athenaeum where our priests and other religious are formed,” she said. The mission of Ruah Woods is to restore the family and renew the culture by educating and training people to understand, embrace and evangelize the message of the Theology of the Body, which is a collection of short talks given by Pope John Paul II early in his pontificate. Kuhlman said the organization hosts a variety of classes for married couples, engaged couples, teens, young adults

Ruah Woods board members, staff and volunteers who broke ground on the new building are, from left, Tom Gruber, George Molinsky, Joe Brinck, Leslie Kuhlman, Tony Maas, Joe Trauth, Mary Keck, Tim Kern, Brian Patrick and Jeremiah Brown.

Nearly 800 students and faculty members came out to the front of Pleasant Run Middle School to take part in the school’s eighth National Anthem Project last week. The students all sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” while members of the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office and Colerain Township Police Department saluted. This tribute is part of the Sept. 13 National Anthem Project led by the National Association for Music Education. TONY JONES/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Managed by the Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati, construction is set to begin this month and should be Ruah Woods, a Catholic ministry in Green Township, is building an Evangelization Center on its property.

and those who are considering a religious vocation. Ruah Woods also offers psychological services, and Kuhlman said the rapid growth of the organization’s Catholic mental health service headed by clinical psychologist Andrew Sodergren is another reason Ruah Woods decided to expand. Kuhlman said their existing building will be renovated and used solely for the Ruah Woods Psychological Services, and they plan to add a second clinical psychologist to the staff. The organization hopes to have the new Evangelization Center completed by July, she said. Ruah Woods launched a capital campaign to fund the project

earlier this summer, with a goal to raise $750,000. She said so far they’ve received more than $400,000 in pledges and donations. “Again, we are blessed that our community has been so generous in these tough economic times,” Kuhlman said. “Our construction budget is not huge as capital campaigns go, but neither is it insignificant. We are working hard and praying harder that we can get to our goal quickly and get this project completed.” For more information about Ruah Woods, or to contribute to the capital campaign, visit or call 513-407-8672.

completed in December. The construction cost for the project is $59,899 and the work is to be performed by Rack & Ballauer Excavating Company. A group of four property owners petitioned MSD for connection to the exist-

ing sewer in the right-ofway of Crest Road. This project will install four 6inch diameter sewer lines, each 60 feet long, across Crest Road and enable four home sewage treatment systems to be eliminated.

We live in an area which is known for very cold winters. Our facility is nearly 7000 square feet in area. When we began to utilize the first unit we were amazed to see how even the heat was for the entire living room area. We ordered a second and a third unit which now warms the entire home. Much to our surprise we are saving over $250 a month and had the lowest expense for heating we have ever experienced here. I would heartily recommend your products to anybody who is interested in really nice, even heat in their home and also interested in saving on their utility expenses. Dennis Crystal, Troy, MT (Retired Airline Pilot)

Enclosed you will find printouts of our electric bill and gas/heating/cooking bills for 2007 - 2008. Our gas company, AmeriGas, stated that more money was saved than would show up because of the cost going up. We would turn the gas on early in the morning and turn it down to 60 degrees; We would use the EdenPURE® heaters from then on and they provided such warmth and cozy heat. Many of our friends have informed me recently that they are going to purchase these heaters for their homes this winter. Gloria D. Smith, Boydton, VA (Retired Elementary Principal)

Save $229 - biggest savings ever

Richard Karn, North Canton, Ohio

I know why millions of Americans are saving on their heating bills with the EdenPURE ® Portable Infrared Heaters. And now you can save up to $229 on new EdenPURE® models, our biggest savings ever, on heaters I personally rank #1 in North America. I was fortunate enough to attend the grand opening of the new EdenPURE® factory in North Canton, Ohio. The new plant brought hundreds of new jobs back to Ohio and reversed the common practice of sending Midwest manufacturing jobs to China. Now, EdenPURE® continues to ramp up production for the coming Winter with exciting new models and hundreds of new employees as this Made in America success story continues to grow. Labor, American American Quality With over 3 million portable heaters sold EdenPURE ® is the best selling portable infrared heating system in North America. However, like any classic, EdenPURE® has dozens of would-be competitors who create Asian copies at low prices using cheap, foreign labor. Don’t be fooled by these imitations. Look for the EdenPURE ® logo and the Made in North Canton, Ohio stamp. Save like millions of others on your heating bills and say “NO” to cheap foreign imitators. Save up to 49% on 2013 EdenPURE®s Now readers can save up to 49% ($229 the largest savings ever on new EdenPURE ®s). EdenPURE ® is not just the best-selling portable heating system in North America. As an EdenPURE ® owner I rank EdenPURE® #1 for quality, safety and efficiency. And now is the perfect time to save like never before on our expanded 2013 EdenPURE ® line made in our brand new North Canton, Ohio facility. With two models EdenPURE® can meet all of your heating requirements 365 days a year. We receive thousands of letters from satisfied customers who share their heating testimonials many of which you can view at our website This Summer we even followed up with EdenPURE® customers from 5 years ago like Gloria Smith (see her original testimony above) who are still just as enthusiastic and in some instances saved thousands of dollars versus costly propane.

As Al Borland on Home Improvement I was the man with all the answers. However, as Richard Karn I still look for money saving and efficient heating in my home. I have an EdenPURE ® Infrared Portable Heater in my California home and like millions of others found it to be a supersafe, reliable source of portable heat all year long. period of 5 years. And that’s proven with my bank statements because it’s documented. And I feel really great about using the EdenPURE® Heaters.” “Many people have called me from all over the country when they have seen the infomercials on TV. I’ve enjoyed talking to them and I want everybody to save money in these hard economic times.

EdenPURE ® provides you insurance against the cold all year long. Stay comfortable on those unseasonably chilly evenings no matter the season. I live in California but believe me it gets cold at night. Keep your expensive furnace turned down until it’s absolutely necessary. And if we are fortunate enough to experience a mild winter as many of us did in the Midwest last year, you keep your furnace off all season and save even bigger. New, More Efficient Models The engineers at EdenPURE® listened to their millions of customers and somehow managed to improve the #1 portable heater in North America. Through old fashioned American ingenuity the new EdenPURE® line is more efficient to save you even more money. EdenPURE ® is proud to introduce the 2013 Model 750. The new Model 750 is perfect for larger areas and heats up to 750 square feet. But the best thing about the Model 750 is the price. We

priced the Model 750 at only $50 above the Personal Heater. This means you receive a 33% increase in performance for only $50. That’s American engineering at its best!

Super Safe Infrared Heat Now remember, a major cause of residential fires in the United States is carelessness and faulty portable heaters. The choice of fire and safety professional, Captain Mike Hornby, the EdenPURE ® has no exposed heating elements that can cause a fire. And a redundant home protection system that simply shuts the EdenPURE ® down if it senses danger. That’s why grandparents and parents love the EdenPURE®. The outside of the EdenPURE ® only gets warm to the touch so that it will not burn children or pets. And your pet may be just like my dog who has reserved a favorite spot near the EdenPURE®. You see the EdenPURE ® uses infrared heat. And just as pets enjoy basking in a beam of sunlight they try to stay close to “boneEdenPURE ® ’s warming” infrared heat.

We are a nation of inventors from Benjamin Franklin to Thomas Edison. A Missouri horse breeder named John Jones was no exception. Jones lived in a large drafty old farmhouse with his family of five. They stayed warm on cold Missouri nights with an old coal furnace and plenty of blankets. Now Jones was always collecting scrap to use in his latest inventions and somewhere along the line he had picked up a large sheet of cured copper. Jones stored the large copper sheet in his basement near the coal furnace he labored to fill every chilly morning. Jones noticed something peculiar. The coal furnace warmed the copper sheet and as the furnace cooled down the copper sheet stayed warm. In fact, the copper sheet stayed warm for many hours and heated much of the large basement. As Jones continued to develop a portable infrared heater he knew the copper was the secret ingredient that would make his heater different from all the rest. His copper heating chambers combined with the far infrared bulbs provided an efficient wave of “soft” heat over large areas. The breakthrough EdenPURE® infrared heating chamber was born. The Health Secret is in the Copper EdenPURE®’s engineers have taken Jones’ original concept through revolutionary changes.

Veteran honored for service By Kurt Backscheider

Edward Burke earned dozens of medals and commendations for his service in World War II. Now the U.S. Army veteran has one more medal to add to the collection he proudly displays in his Green Township home. The 92-year-old was recently awarded the Knight of the Legion of Honor medal by the French government in appreciation of his efforts to help liberate France during the war. “The French Legion of Honor is the highest military award that can be given to a soldier who is not a member of the French Republic,” Burke said. “It was an honor I never in the world expected.” The Legion of Honor was created by Napoleon in 1802 to acknowledge services rendered to France by people of exceptional merit. In a letter Burke received from Graham Paul, the Consul General of France here in the U.S., Paul wrote that the award is a tribute to the service members who did so much for France and Western Europe. “More than 65 years ago, you gave your youth to France and the French people. Many of your fellow soldiers did not return home, but they remain in our hearts,” Paul wrote. “Thanks to the courage of these soldiers, to our American friends and allies, France has been living in peace for the past six

decades. They saved us and we will never forget. I want you to know that for us, the French people, they are heroes. “You, Major Burke, are among those heroes,” the letter states.

An Army Officer

Burke grew up near Mount Echo Park in Price Hill, and said he attended Mother of Mercy Academy, which later became Mother of Mercy High School. He then attended St. Xavier High School, when it was located in downtown Cincinnati, and graduated from there in 1938. “The world was a mess when I graduated from high school,” Burke said. The U.S. was reeling from the Great Depression, and Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany had entered into an alliance with Japan. Fearing an uncertain future, Burke entered the Army ROTC program at Xavier University and began work on his bachelor’s of arts degree. He said he knew he wanted to go to law school after college and become an attorney, but he also wanted to make sure that if he ended up in the military he’d have a more favorable position. “I knew I’d much rather go in as an officer,” he said. As it turned out, he said the U.S. entered World War II his senior year of college. Burke earned his bachelor’s from Xavier University on May 24,1942, and reported for active duty the

very next day.

Artillery Expert

As a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army, Burke enrolled in the battery officer course in field artillery at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, and then graduated to advanced artillery school at Fort Sill in Oklahoma. He said he was then transferred to Camp Hood in Texas to complete more training, and it was there he was promoted to first lieutenant and then captain. From December 1942 to October 1943, he served as the commander of Company A, in the 129th Tank Destroyer Battalion. “The fella who was in line to be the company commander failed his physical, so they gave me the honor of commanding the unit,” he said with a smile. Burke said he was stationed at Camp Hood for about one year, before being transferred to Camp Rucker in Alabama and then on to Camp Breckenridge in Kentucky, where he joined the 821st Tank Destroyer Battalion. His battalion was sent overseas from Camp Miles Standish in Boston, and in February 1944 they landed at Cardiff, Wales, to train for a landing at a place called Omaha Beach.


Upon arriving in the United Kingdom, Burke’s tank battalion was attached to the Army’s 29th Infantry Division. The division was among

Green Township resident Edward Burke, a U.S. Army veteran who served as a commanding officer and landed at Omaha Beach during the D-Day invasion in World War II, was recently named a Knight of the Legion of Honor by the French Republic for his actions during the war. The Legion of Honor is the highest military award France can bestow to a serviceman who is not a member of the French Republic. KURT BACKSCHEIDER/THE COMMUNITY PRESS the 160,000 Allied troops who invaded a 50-mile stretch of beaches in Normandy, France, on June 6, 1944. Burke still vividly remembers the brutal invasion, which cost more than 9,000 men their lives. He was in the division’s 116th Regiment, and he gets choked up recounting a story about a company in the regiment’s first battalion. “They were the boys on the first two boats into Normandy,” Burke said, tears welling. “There was a group of 37 boys from a little town called Bedford, Va., on those boats. “Within five minutes of the invasion, half of those boys were killed,” he said. Burke’s own company saw loss as well. “Ten of my guys were

killed coming into Normandy,” he said. The toll was high, but by the end of the battle the Allies had gained a foothold in Normandy. More than 100,000 troops began a march across Europe to destroy Hitler.

Decorated Soldier

After securing the beaches in Normandy, Burke helped lead the 821st Tank Destroyer Battalion through northern France, taking back the cities of St. Lo, Vire and Brest from the Germans. He received the Army’s Bronze Star for meritorious service in Normandy and the French Croix de Guerre with Silver Star for his actions in the battle for Vire. His battalion continued fighting across France,

Belgium, Holland and Germany with the 29th Infantry, winning battles for Julich on the Roer River and liberating the German cities of Aachen and Munchen-Gladbach, he said. Burke was awarded the Army’s Silver Star for gallantry in action at the battle on the Roer River. The Bronze Star and Silver Star are among some of the highest honors the Army awards. “These are combat medals,” Burke said. “You get these from Uncle Sam when people shoot at you.” While he takes pride in his medals, presidential unit citations and decorations, he recognizes he’s fortunate to have returned home and he never forgets the men who made the ultimate sacrifice. He belongs to a military group called the Band of Brothers, and he said he’s visited France four times to pay his respects at the cemeteries there. “We lost a lot of men there,” he said. “The 29th Infantry had more casualties than any other division in northern Europe – more than 21,000 casualties.”

Back Home

By the time the war was over, Burke had been promoted from a company commander in charge of 12 tanks to a battalion commander in charge of 36 tanks, and he’d earned the rank of an Army Major. He returned to Cincinnati, and he said five days after he got back he married his sweetheart, Betty Lou Hudepohl. Staying true to his goal of becoming an attorney, he earned his law degree from the University of Cincinnati’s law school and worked for many years as a real estate attorney. He and his late wife settled in Green Township and raised five children, and he now enjoys spending time with his 16 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. “Life is a series of coincidences,” Burke said. “I’m fortunate the way it turned out.”

“I am thrilled to now be a part of the Spartan community. I grew up in a family that moved around A lot. My father is a retired U.S. Army officer, so we were stationed at various places around the U.S. and around the world. I moved to the Cincinnati area for college in 2003 when I began my undergraduate degree at Xavier University. It was there where I studied theology and religious education. It was also during this time that I had my first taste of Roger Bacon. I shadowed Deacon Rose during my student teaching experience. For the past five years I have worked at Oldenburg Academy (Indiana) as a religion teacher and campus ministry member and chair. While at Oldenburg Academy I met my husband, Aurelio. We married in 2010 and welcomed our daughter, Anna, into the world in the summer of 2011. I am currently working toward finishing up my master’s degree in international relations at the University of Indianapolis. I love spending time with my family, taking walks, reading, traveling, and serving others. I am happy to be a part of this Fran-

ciscan community and am looking forward to getting to know you!”

Mel Forman

“I have lived in Ohio my entire life – born in Cleveland, grew up in Columbus, went to college in Akron, and now I live just north of Cincinnati in Maineville. I am married, my husband’s name is Sean and he works at PCMS Datafit as a software engineer. I have a stepdaughter, Samantha, who is 19 and a daughter, Meaghan, who is 7. I have been a teacher for 20 years. This is my first time teaching in a Catholic school. I grew up in a huge Irish Catholic family, so I am excited and look forward to the opportunity to teach at Roger Bacon.”

Apryl Pope

“I am originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, and grew up in Forest Park. I went to Winton Woods High School before attending Wittenberg University to study economics. After Wittenberg, I joined the U.S. Peace Corps where I was stationed in South Africa for 2 ½ years. This was a life changing experience for me and it’s where I discovered my love for education. When I returned, I obtained my master’s degree in math education from George Washington University and began teaching in the Washington, D.C., area. We recently relocated back to Cincinnati after nearly six years in the nation’s capitol and we are so happy to be ‘home.’ My husband Kenny is the athletic director at Purcell Marian and our sons, Kenny and Chase, are 3 and 1 years old. I am so excited to join the Roger Bacon family and I am so thankful for the warm welcome I have received. Go Spartans!”

Kate Romola

“I am a Cincinnati area native, I grew up in Hamilton and attended Badin High School. After Badin I went to Xavier University. I eventually switched my major to theology with a minor in religious education. While I loved my time in the classroom student teaching at St. Xavier High School, I decided to take a job as a college campus minister upon graduation from college. I spent that last several years running the campus ministry office at the College of Mount St. Joseph, finding my passion for working with students and engaging in conversations about faith and life philosophy. I am very happy to be back in the classroom, and feel that my time spent working with college students will only enhance my work with students who are moving on to that stage of life. During the summers my time was spent in Boston, Mass., as I worked to finish a master’s degree in pastoral ministry at Boston College. As you might guess, I am a Musketeer and Red Sox fan, and Notre Dame is my college football favorite.”

Northwest improves to 4-0; Colerain rolls

Mt. Healthy, La Salle keep wins coming By Nick Dudukovich

COLERAIN TWP. — Keshun Horton returned an interception 55 yards for a fourth-quarter touchdown as Northwest defeated visiting Ross 31-14 Sept. 14. Ross was trailing by three points and had just crossed into Northwest territory when Horton came up with the defensive play of the game to stop the drive. Dominic Williams ended up with three interceptions and brought two back for touchdowns, including a 99-yard return in the fourth quarter. Junior quarterback Cory Roberson threw for 181 yards and added 68 yards on the ground with a touchdown to help pace the offense and keep Northwest, ranked No. 4 in the Enquirer Divisions II-VI area coaches’ poll, un-

beaten. Northwest is 4-0 for the first time in school history, according to the school’s athletic department. Next game: Northwest hosts Wilmington Sept. 21.

La Salle 70, Northwest (Ind.) 20

Colerain, ranked No. 2 in The Enquirer Division I area coaches’ poll, racked up 506 yards of total offense, but it was the Cardinals’ defense that struck first blood. Linebacker Corey Lozier opened up the scoring when he returned a fumble 8 yards for a touchdown. Minutes later, Jalen Christian intercepted a pass and returned it 57 yards to put the Cardinals up 14-0. Colerain (4-0) put six more on the board at the beginning of the second quarter. Alfred Ramsby raced down the field about 20 yards—and then he fumbled. Fortunately for the Colerain quarterback, the ball took a lucky bounce

MONFORT HEIGHTS — The La Salle High School soccer team is off to one of its best starts in recent memory. The Lancers improved to (50-2) with a win over McNicholas, Sept. 11. La Salle hadn’t reached five wins this early in the season since the 2004, when that version of the Lancers also won their fifth match on the same date eight years ago. “This is probably our best start in five or six years,” head coach Steve Schulten said. “We’re off to a great start, but it’s what we expected from this group.” The last two seasons, the Lancers fielded a youthful roster, but now it appears that group is ready to turn its growing pains into wins. A good example of the Lancers’ ability was put on display during the team’s 2-0 win over Walnut Hills — the No. 6-ranked team in the city coaches’ poll. “We’ve played a lot of tight matches over (the past couple years),” Schulten said. “All the young guys are seniors now… I think we realize…we’re good enough that we can win tight matches, just not be in them.” La Salle, which is ranked No. 6 in the coaches’ polls, has received an offensive boost from senior C.J. Seig and junior Jacob Whyle.

Seig is third in the GCL with 13 points coming off five goals and three assists “C.J.’s really figured out what it takes to take it to the next level,” Schulten said. “He really got himself into great shape (over the summer) and I really think he’s reaping the benefits of it this year.” Whyle’s 11 points (five goals and one assist) are seventh best in the league. He’s started varsity since he was a sophomore and is proving to be an invaluable weapon. “We were really counting on him to add a finishing punch for us at the top end of our game,” Schulten said. Other long-time varsity members Jake Eisenacher and Andrew Wood have also provided offense and have combined for four goals. Defensively, the Lancers have received a stellar effort from defender Matt Henkes and goalie Brandon Luipold, who has four shutouts under his belt. As the Lancers get deeper into their schedule, the squad will look to turn back the clock and finish off the season with a GCL title — just like the 2004 squad did. And Schulten and the Lancers look up to the challenge. “We know it’s going to be a tough (league) schedule. This group has embraced that challenge of trying to win a GCL title this year,” Shulten said.

Just two games back from injury, La Salle senior quarterback Brad Burkhart looks to be fitting in just fine as the Lancers’ signal caller. Burkhart threw two touchdown passes to Derek Kief, and kicked off the game’s scoring with a 1-yard pass to senior Brennen Walsh. Next game: La Salle plays at Bishop Watterson Sept. 21.

Bombers set sights on title

first quarter, Mount Healthy exploded for 21 points in the second quarter and never looked back, improving to 4-0 on the year with a win over visiting Talawanda Sept. 14. Mount Healthy, ranked No. 2 in The Enquirer Divisions II-VI area coaches’ poll, was led by junior Tyree Elliot, who racked up 146 yards and four scores on the night.

SPRINGFIELD TWP. — The loss of 14 seniors doesn’t seem to be affecting St. Xavier soccer . They are off to a 4-2-1 start through Sept. 15. Their two losses were to Toledo St. John’s at the Jesuit Cup and Mason, ranked third in The Enquirer Division I area coaches’ poll. “I’m reasonably pleased,” coach Henry Ahrens said about his team’s start. “I think there are things we could do better. More importantly we set ourselves up for doing the right things in the second half of the season. (Our tough games) made us realize things and grow up a little bit.” Goalkeeper Micah Bledsoe has been a key for the Bombers early in the season. The senior has shutout all four opponents in the Bombers’ victories. Bledsoe was key in the season-opener when the Bombers knocked off Loveland 1-0, who is currently No. 2 in the Enquirer poll. “I think there is still room for improvement for him,” Ahrens said. “I think that goes for the whole team. Maybe that is a good thing. I think he still has it in him to make that one big save in a game that deflates a team. I think he’s got that in him, but we haven’t seen it yet.” What has been surprising is the way this team has handled itself despite losing so many seniors from last year’s regional semifinalist team. “It starts with good players in the program,” Ahrens said. “When they come up (from ju-

Louisville Trinity 14, St. Xavier 13

St. Xavier played well against a very good Louisville Trinity team on the road, but the Bombers lost 14-13; their second loss in a row. Trinity, ranked No. 11 in the USA Today Super 25 poll, scored the go-ahead touchdown with 29 seconds left in the game. St. X kicker Aaron Berry made a pair of field goals early in the fourth quarter to give the Bombers a 13-7 lead. Trinity’s game-winning drive started with roughly seven minutes remaining in the game and the Shamrocks took almost all seven minutes to take the lead. St. X quarterback Nick Tensing was 25 of 38 for 235 yards and a touchdown. St. Xavier’s defense played well, allowing Trinity just 246 yards of total offense. The Bombers also kept Trinity’s star wide receiver, James Quick, in check with just 77 yards on 10 catches and no touchdowns.

Alter 44, Roger Bacon 6

The Spartans fell to 0-4 with the loss. Entering week four, quarterback Ruggiero DeLuca was second in the GCL Central with 325 rushing yards. Next game: Roger Bacon plays at Purcell Marian Sept. 21.

nior varsity), they are good players but they have to grow. What is key is the leadership passed on from last year’s seniors to this year’s guys and the way the seniors have taken the younger guys under their wing.” The fourth-ranked Bombers haven’t experienced a drop-off in their offense, averaging two goals a game and have been shutout just once (Mason). Leading in scoring are junior midfielders Austin Harrell and Kiley Sunderhaus, but nine Bombers have scored this season. “I think playing-wise (our offense) is our strength,” Ahrens said. “Another team can’t look at us and say that is the guy to stop. You can look and try to stop a guy, but we have many guys who can score. That makes it difficult for them.” St. X opened Greater Catholic League play with wins over Alter (2-0) and Bishop Fenwick (5-0), but still have a tough road ahead. Elder, La Salle and Moeller are a combined 15-3-3, while Carroll was a district champion in 2011 and currently ranked No. 2 in the Division II state poll. In addition, the Bombers play Centerville who is 6-0-0 and ranked No. 3 in the Division I state poll. “Right now I can’t even afford to look ahead,” the coach said about the remaining schedule. “It’s tough at the beginning, but there is no let-up and I don’t know if there will be. I think it’s going to get us ready for the tournament. We certainly want to win the GCL, that is where are sights are set. We just have to keep learning and get better every day.”

All the dirt on backyard composting Looking to make use of yard trimmings, fruit and vegetable scraps? Why not start a compost pile? Compost can be used as both a mulch and a soil amendment to control weeds, maintain soil temperatures, reduce soil erosion, add micronutrients and beautify your planting area. Composting may seem like a large task, but compost piles require only a minimal amount of maintenance to produce a useable product. First, pick a good location. The site should have plenty of room but not interfere with your family’s lawn and garden activities. The pile should be exposed to rain but also have good drainage. Keep Holly the pile a safe Christmann COMMUNITY PRESS distance away from waterGUEST COLUMNIST ways (such as creekbeds, streams or rivers) and wood (including wooded buildings and trees). Next add yard trimmings and food scraps to your pile. In composting, it is important to keep a carbon-to-nitrogen ratio of three to one. Carbon comes from brown materials like leaves, straw, sawdust or paper. Nitrogen comes from green material like grass clippings and food scraps. The following items can be composted in your backyard: » Fruit and vegetable scraps » Leaves, plants and prunings » Coffee grounds » Tea bags » Grass clippings » Flowers » Pine needles » Wood chips » Shredded newspaper » Wood ash » Straw » Sawdust » Cornstalks » Alfalfa hay » Brush and shrub trimmings The following items cannot be composted in your backyard: » Oils/fats/grease » Bones » Meat » Weed seeds » Salad dressing » Diseased plants or weeds » Inorganic material (i.e., plastic) » Butter or dairy products » Cat or dog manure After five or six weeks, your pile will be ready to turn. Use a shovel or other tool to rotate the pile. Compost will be ready to use when it is dark brown, crumbly and earthy-smelling. For more information on composting, visit our blog at The Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District is a division of the Hamilton County Department of Environmental Services which also encompasses the Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency. For more information, visit the Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District online at www.hamiltoncounty, call 946-7766, or interact with us on Facebook and Twitter.

ed with our community is the presence of a garbage dump! The dumps impact is pervasive; it presents a negative community image for both current and future homeowners and it

severely hinders our economic development efforts. The Ohio Revised Code recognizes that dumps have a negative impact on a neighborhood. Dumping fees and the “good will

marketing” of the dump owners will never be able to replace what residents of our township have lost in both quality of life and home equity now and in the future because the dump exists. There is no agreement that would be the right agreement to allow expansion because the Colerain legacy we leave our children and grandchildren must be one of living in a community without the pervasive impact of a dump. During that interim period in which the dump operates, it must not be noticeable. No fire hazards, blowing litter, odors, insects, vectors, and rodents should exist. This resident, and I know many others, have a very deep concern about what is now going to take place. It is critical that we have a public statement from the trustees about the next steps in this process. Rich McVey Colerain Township

Blacks more prone to have asthma

As we near the end of this smog season, I reflected back on my experiences with the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments’ Clean Air Program’s various festivals and fairs I attended. One of the interesting aspects of my involvement was the many questions I received from African Americans involving smog; its affects and what can be done to prevent it. This drove me to research if any one race was more prone to the most prevalent ailment of smog, asthma. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Minority Health, African Americans are 30 percent more likely to have asthma than non-Hispanic whites. The three main reasons why more African Americans tend to be diagnosed with asthma: limited access to health care, structure of neighborhoods and environmental status. According to a literature review about the Prevalence of Asthma Disparities Amongst African-American Children, limited access to health care was their first conclusion involving this asthma problem because of the lack of treatment and available health care. The study also contributed this to The National Asthma Education and Prevention Program

guidelines. These guidelines can be misinterpreted because the range of symptoms within the Loren Koehler guidelines COMMUNITY PRESS reflects only a narrow view GUEST COLUMNIST of symptoms. This leads to miscommunication between providers and patients. The lack of information and directions provided can create awful consequences. Social structure and neighborhoods is the next category relating more cases of asthma to African Americans. Various studies show that income has a huge impact on asthma but it is not the only thing. Families who live in low income and high crime areas are afraid their children may be harmed by gang or drug violence so children spend a disproportionate amount of time indoors. Low income areas often have older and at times badly maintained housing due to absentee landlords. An impoverished neighborhood with poor housing creates a physical environment that is high in allergens from smoke, dust mites, mold from water damage and pest. With all these potential problems, as children are

growing up around them, they are more prone to developing problems such as asthma. Children tend to breathe more rapidly because their lungs aren’t fully developed which make them susceptible to respiratory problems. With all this being said, there are things that can be done to help prevent respiratory issues. Here are some things you can do: » Seek a primary physician

or get in touch with a convenient health center and attend regular check-ups. Every patient is different and seeing your doctor regularly will help provide a solution to your symptoms. » Exercise. Being overweight is a strong contributor to asthma because it makes it hard to breathe. Staying in shape and eating well are two great things to keep you healthy. » If you are a smoker, consider quitting. Smoke as well as environmental irritants like dust, pollen and mold; perfume and feather beds can contribute to respiratory problems. » Make sure your home environment is free of irritating substances such as dirt, chemicals from aerosols, dust, standing water and perfumes. All of these tips are simple enough to be done every day. Please be cautious of smog alert days because that is when children, the elderly and people with respiratory issues are most prone to problems.

Missing teeth? Mini Dental Implants; a lower cost option Do you have a missing tooth or teeth? After your dentist told you to replace the tooth/teeth with either an uncomfortable partial, a bridge that would grind down your healthy teeth or an expensive traditional implant were you left feeling frustrated? A newer excellent alternative is the Mini Dental Implant, or MDI. The procedure, which is offered by Dr. Christopher Omeltschenko, can be used to replace a single missing tooth or an entire row of teeth. “The advantages of a single MDI over traditional options are numerous,” says Dr. Omeltschenko. “At 1.8 millimeters in diameter they can be placed without surgically opening the gums, so recovery is quick and most patients don’t even need pain medicine.” He adds, “MDIs are not connected to adjacent teeth so common problems, such as difficulty cleaning between teeth and food entrapments are eliminated. And at about the same price as a partial and about half the price of a bridge or traditional implant, they are extremely affordable as well.” MDIs are functional on the same day they are put in, enabling patients who have a MDI placed in the morning to enjoy eating lunch without difficulty in the afternoon. Christopher Omeltschenko, D.D.S. Call (513) 245-2200 today for your free, 6560 Colerain Avenue no-obligation consultation (a $150 value). Cincinnati, Ohio 45239 Dr. Omeltschenko will work with you and your existing dentist to give you what you’ve always wanted, a beautiful, confident smile.

When we were in Germany, we attended an Oktoberfest celebration with daughter-in-law Inge and son Joe. It went on for days and the beer, food and music were non-stop. Oktoberfest is one popular celebration here in Cincinnati, as well. It will be held on Sept. 22 and 23. Check out the Oktoberfest Zinzinnati Rita website for Heikenfeld details. RITA’S KITCHEN Cream puffs are a given on the Oktoberfest menu and the bakeries make gigantic ones. I wanted to share my favorite cream puff recipe in case you wanted to make some for your Oktoberfest party.




Center forms show choir Cincinnati is the city that sings and now you can do just that at the Cincinnati Dance and Movement Center. The center is known for its award-winning dancing, and now its students will have the chance to sing while they dance. It has formed a new youth show choir called the Cincinnati Show Choir to showcase the talents of local boys and girls. Kyle Phillips, Winton Woods music teacher and choir director, will be vocally directing the choir. Tina Marie Prentosito, Cincinnati Dance and Movement Center’s director, will choreograph the performances. The center is currently looking for students in grades four through high school to be a part of the choir. For those who love to sing, dance, and perform in front of an audience, this is an opportunity to become part of the inaugural group of the Cincinnati Show Choir. In the future, auditions

will be required, but for the first year, any youth who is enthusiastic, hard-working and Phillips dedicated will be accepted into the choir. The junior show choir (grades four-six) will meet on Thursdays from 4:45-5:30 p.m. and the senior show choir (seventh-grade through high school) will meet Thursdays 5:30-6:30 p.m., beginning Thursday, Sept. 20. The choir is already scheduled to perform throughout the month of December at various locations including Springfield Township, Wyoming, the Cincinnati Museum Center and Tri-County Mall. For more information on how to become a member of the Cincinnati Show Choir, call 521-8462 or visit



Of all the local neighborhood amenities that can influence a buyer’s decision to purchase a home, proximity to good quality schools is one of the most influential. According to the 2010 National Association of REALTORS® Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, 25% of home buyers listed school quality and 19% listed proximity to schools as deciding factors in their home purchase. This field guide includes articles and studies on the importance of schools for home buyers and how schools impact local property values, along with a sampling of Web sites that provided data on school districts.

Izaak Walton League offers Sensory Sarfai A very different kind of experience will be offered Sunday, Sept. 23, thanks to a joint effort between the Mount Healthy Chapter of the Izaak Walton League of America and the Southwest Ohio Safari Club International. From 12:30-5 p.m. at the Mount Healthy Chapter Hall, 3505 Bevis Lane, a Sensory Safari will take place. Everyone is welcome and there is no charge. The Sensory Safari experience is a means through which knowledge can be shared with blind adults and children and

their sighted family members and friends. Guests have the opportunity to touch and explore furs, hides and mounts that, in turn, helps them learn about each animal and the “coats” they needed for warmth, protection and camouflage. Sensory safaris are held in schools and public places to expose sight-impaired people, especially children, to handson, up-close wildlife textures that they would otherwise never have the chance to examine. The Mount Healthy Chapter IWLA will be the host organization and open

its grounds and hall for the safari. Many children and their families were at these grounds in June when the chapter had its annual “Kids’ Fishing Day.” The Southwest Ohio Safari Club International will run the safari, providing animal mounts, skins, furs, hides, antlers and other parts for blind and sighted participants to interact with. There will also be a BB gun shoot for the blind where the shooter gets assistance from a trained guide to provide full safety. Also, a trap shoot on the grounds and casual fishing in the chapter’s lake will be

available with equipment and bait provided if needed. Both of these organizations are made up of lovers of the outdoors: hunters, fishermen, campers, hikers, trackers, boaters and an overall general appreciation of the environment and what it can teach us. Both Izaak Walton League and Southwest Ohio Safari Club promote wildlife conservation and fair and ethical hunting. If you have any questions about the event, call David Rivers at 257-8595 or the chapter phone at 3858560.

Liberty employees aid cancer agency Many people have seen the Liberty Mutual Insurance “Responsibility” television commercials featuring individuals doing good deeds for others after witnessing a stranger doing something helpful for someone else. Cancer Support Community, formerly The Wellness Community, saw it happen in real life when 35 local Liberty Mutual employees from the Fairfield office left their own work at the office to each spend five hours volunteering at the non-profit cancer support organization, helping with essential landscaping and interior and exterior cleaning and maintenance chores. The two-day service project was part of a global effort called “Serve with

THANKS TO JAMIE EIFERT Liberty” organized by the insurance company to celebrate its 100th anniversary. Liberty Mutual employees around the world were encouraged to participate in the project and permitted

Trusted Senior Home Care

to take time off on either June 21 or 22 to serve at a nonprofit organization. Worldwide, “Serve with Liberty” resulted in 25,000 people from 19 countries providing 106,000 hours of service to 760 different charities. In Greater Cincinnati,

approximately 700 Liberty Mutual employees took part, choosing from service projects at nearly 50 pre-approved nonprofit organizations. At Cancer Support Community, 20 Liberty Mutual employees worked on landscaping and grounds keeping projects in the sweltering heat for five hours June 21 and then 15 more employees spent five hours June 22 doing a “deep clean” inside. According to CSC’s director of development Betty Cookendorfer, the help was much needed and very appreciated. “ It can be a lot to maintain for a nonprofit with a very small staff, so having so many committed volunteers from Liberty Mutual willing to provide so many hours of hard work is a huge help for us,” Cookendorfer said.

Weekend events celebrate great outdoors Great Outdoor Weekend, an initiative of Green Umbrella, is a sampling of outdoor recreation and nature education activities offered in the region around greater Cincinnati. This year, there are more than 120 opportunities to engage with the environment. You might get a little dirt on your hands learning about composting or water on your feet taking a creek walk. You might work your way up 60 feet in the air exploring the tree tops or you could pick up a bow and arrow for the first time and try your shot at archery. And best of all, all programs are free and open to the public. It all happens this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 22 and 23.

Kehoe hosts money class Kehoe Financial Advisors will host a free seminar on Retiring with Financial Dignity: Longevity Strategies for Social Security and Long Term Health Care 6:30-8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16, at the Nathanael Green Lodge on 6394 Wesselman Road. The public is invited. The event brings together Social Security experts Jim Blair and Marc Kiner of Premier Social Security Consulting and elder law attorney Mary Ann Jacobs of Ritter and Randolph LLC to address strategies to maximize Social Security payments and minimize long term health care costs. Appetizers will be served. Seminar admission is free, but reservations are required. To attend, contact Kehoe Financial Advisors at 513481-8555. “We want to help educate people on the financial rights and responsibilities they have as they age,” said Steve Kehoe, president and founder of Kehoe Financial Advisors. Kiner and Blair will speak on Social Security basics and advanced plan-

ning strategies. Attendees will learn how benefits are calculated, how to maximize benefits and learn how to make a Social Security plan. Blair is a 35-year veteran of the Social Security Administration, retiring in 2010. Kiner has been a certified public accountant for 30 years in Cincinnati. They are frequent speakers and blog on Social Security issues. Their company was included in a Wall Street Journal story this spring on Social Security assistance “More than 90 percent of all Social Security recipients leave money on the table when claiming Social Security benefits,” said Kiner. “We are on a crusade to educate folks about Social Security nationwide.” Jacobs is senior partner at Ritter and Randolph. She will address what people need to consider as they look at long term health care and its costs. For more information about Kehoe Financial Advisors, call 513-4818555 or visit
