BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Colerain trustees OK retire/rehire plan By Jennie Key jkey@communitypress.com

Colerain Township trustees hired a police chief Nov. 12. It’s the same one they hired in 2008. The board of trustees approved a request from Chief Dan Meloy to retire and be rehired by a 2-1 vote. As part of the retire/rehire arrangement, Meloy takes a 25 percent cut in pay, taking him from $102,500 annually to $76,875 annually, according to

Meloy

Colerain Township Administrator Jim Rowan. Meloy was a police officer with the township department for 19 years before his appointment to chief in

2008. The trustee board had a public hearing Oct. 22, and allowed residents to talk at the township meeting Nov. 12. Members of

the business community praised the chief for his innovation and leadership. Board president Dennis Deters said the decision to allow the chief to retire and be rehired was a no-brainer for him. “I am very pleased,” he said. “Dan is the definition of good leadership and we are blessed to have him.” Trustee Jeff Ritter said he is philosophically opposed to the practice of retiring and being rehired, and said his vote

against Meloy’s request had nothing to do with Meloy or his performance as chief. He voted no. “In my eight years as trustee, I have had some difficult votes, but none as gut wrenching as this,” he said. “My vote is not an indication of my confidence in you (Meloy), I respect you immensely.” The practice of retiring to collect a pension and being rehired for the same position is known as double dipping.

New hospital could be an economic boon

KNIGHTS’ DREAM SEASON OVER

By Kurt Backscheider

GREEN TWP. — While township leaders are excited about the state-of-the-art medical services Mercy Health is bringing to the West Side, they’re also looking forward to economic development opportunities the new hospital will help attract. Mercy Health Boiman – West Hospital, a 250-bed, full-service hospital off of North Bend Road near Interstate 74, will open for business Sunday, Nov. 10. Roughly five years in the makLinnenberg ing, the $240 million hospital will feature the latest advancements in patient

ponents say it allows the township to retain experienced employees and saves taxpayers money, as the state pension program covers health insurance, and the experienced workers often come back at lower pay. Opponents say it denies younger employees the opportunity to advance. Meloy said he is happy to be staying as chief. “I have no plans to go anywhere,” he said. “At this point, I’m staying as long as they’ll have me.”

care and comfort, new technologies, private patient rooms and expanded medical services for West Siders. Mercy Health’s West Market Leader and President Mike Stephens said the hospital will serve as the center of Mercy’s network of health care services throughout the area, and allow Mercy to offer services it does not have capabilities for now at its neighborhood hospitals in Westwood and Mount Airy. The new facility will have comprehensive cardiovascular services, a comprehensive cancer center, a women’s health center, maternity care and a family birth center, all of which are completely new to the West Side, he said. It will also have an emergency department, an orthopaedics center and the latest surgical innovations, including robotic surgery.

oratory for all of Mercy Health’s facilities in southwest Ohio. “It’s really an exciting time for us, but also for the residents of the West Side,” Stephens said. Green Township Trustee Chairman Rocky Boiman said the hospital will serve as the centerpiece of the township and will be the largest employer in the township. “This is a once in a generation opportunity, to have a brand new hospital open in your community,” he said. “It’s no small deal whatsoever and we’re very fortunate. We’re definitely excited about it and we’re looking forward to it opening.” Boiman said he and his fellow township officials see the hospital as a cata-

lyst for even more economic development, specifically for attracting restaurants. “For the longest time the big knock on Green Township is that we don’t have enough restaurants,” he said. Cincinnati resident Tony Petrocelli is opening the first Workout Anytime in Ohio near the hospital, in a space that was previously a WesBanco and had been vacant for six years. Green Township Trustee David Linnenberg said the hospital played a large role in landing a planned development on Harrison Avenue featuring a Dewey’s Pizza restaurant and a Graeter’s ice cream shop. The development, named Harrison Green, could also include a 25,000-square-feet office building. Linnenberg said the cafe chain First Watch has also expressed interest in

opening a location in the township, and his hope is the daytime lunch crowd created by the hospital’s nearly 1,200 employees will lead to additional sitdown restaurants. “Our ultimate goal is to have more sit-down restaurants,” he said. “And because of the lunch crowd those types of restaurants are now beginning to look at Green Township.” More professional offices and medical offices buildings will also come to the township, as well as new retail shopping options, he said. Pier 1 Imports is a retailer looking into a possible township location, Linnenberg said. “The fact is Mercy Health will have a direct impact on our economy, while providing a comprehensive system of care that is accessible for all residents of Cincinnati’s West Side,” he said. “We’re especially pleased that Mercy Health made the decision to chart its future course right here in Green Township.” Adam Goetzman, Green Township’s assistant administrator and director of planning and development, said as a nonprofit organization the hospital will not pay real estate taxes to the township, but the hospital, the

adjacent medical office building and all future medical buildings on the site are in a Joint Economic Development District the township established with Cheviot. The township will collect a 2 percent income tax from employees of the hospital for the first 10 years it is open, and then the tax drops to 1 percent for the remaining 40 years of the JEDD. For the first 20 years of the JEDD, 90 percent of the proceeds from tax revenues will go to Green Township and 10 percent will go to Cheviot. In year 21 and thereafter, the split will be 85 percent to Green Township and 15 percent to Cheviot. Goetzman said it’s estimated the township will receive nearly $750,000 annually in JEDD revenue from the hospital and about $100,000 per year from the medical office building. He said additional JEDD money is expected be generated within the next five years because it’s anticipated more medical office buildings will be constructed on the site. He said it’s not known yet how much additional property taxes will be generated for the township from new restaurants and businesses opening because of the hospital, but the infusion of more than 1,000 employees into the community is certainly making developers take notice. “We have seen a significant rise in development interest on North Bend Road and nearby on Harrison Avenue,” Goetzman said. “I think we’re going to see a fair amount of activity in the coming months and years.”

Annual train show kicks off Green Township holiday season By Jennie Key jkey@communitypress.com

Get your holidays on track with the annual train display at the Green Township Senior Center. The train show, which is set up and run by the Queen City HiRailers, is available again this year, and admission is still free. This year’s show will be open from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 23, and Sunday, Nov. 24, at the Green Township Senior Center at 3920 Epley Road. It will feature a large multi-track layout running realistic scale models of old and new trains. Different kinds of engines pull many different kinds of passenger and freight cars over bridges, through tunnels and into switching yards and stations on the big, realistically landscaped layout. Tom Buchman, a Green Township resident and member of the

Queen City HiRailers, said the train display at the senior center has become a tradition for area families. He enjoys sharing his hobby with youngsters who come to see the trains run. “They get a different perspective,” he said. “For a lot of them, it’s eye-level.” Buchman said it takes about two hours to set everything up. About 20 club members help set up, then 10 can keep the trains rolling during the two-day demonstration. “It’s never the same two years in a row,” he said. The Queen City HiRailers is an “O” Gauge three rail Modular Train Group. Now located in the Ross School District Administration Building in Ross, the group has three rooms on the third floor to set up the track modules, run trains on them, work on equipment, build more modules, and hold meetings.

Pugh looks to get Colerain back to winning in 1st season By Tom Skeen

tskeen@communitypress.com

With the start of the women’s basketball season right around the corner, here’s a preview of how the teams in the Northwest Press coverage area are shaping up:

Colerain

Jim Pugh takes over the Lady Cardinals after spending three seasons roughly 10 minutes east of Colerain at Mount Healthy. The Cards turned in just their second losing season in the Greater Miami Conference since 2007 and finished 9-14 overall. With Pugh now at the helm, none of that history matters. “As far as saying what they did in the past, how they practiced in the past, what offenses or defense (they ran), it’s different,” he said. His team returns its top three scorers from last season, but there’s only one stat Pugh is worrying about right now. “The only thing I looked at from last year’s stats is they had a bunch of turnovers. I look at that and remind them of it almost every day.” Junior Kaylee Allen led the team with 11.3 points per game last season, but is coming off a foot/shin injury and is just now

working back in to shape, according to Pugh. The Cards will have size under the hoop with five girls 5foot-10 or taller, led by senior Jalan Latimer, who averaged six points and seven rebounds a game last season. “At this point we’re trying to get them to finish,” Pugh said of his post players. “… A lot of it has to do with just experience, along with knowing where they are on the floor and what they can do with (the ball).” Expect contributions from sophomore Jada Love, as well as senior Erin Scherrer and junior Ciera Phillips. The Cardinals start the season Nov. 22 against Badin at Cincinnati State College Technical and Community College.

Dan Wallace takes over a Mohawk team that returns five players from their district final team from a season ago. “The big thing for me is it’s a new system and I’m a new coach so everybody is kind of starting from new,” Wallace said, who spent the previous three seasons at Colerain. “We do have experienced players who want to win; who expect to win, so they come with that fire. But, at the same time everybody’s learning right now.” Running his new system is

junior point guard Emily Vogelpohl, who averaged 6.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 3.7 steals per game last season. “Emily is legit,” Wallace said. “She’s a really good point guard who has very good vision and is a good ball handler. She plays with a lot of poise.” Junior Sydney Lambert led the Mohawks with 11.9 points per game and scored in double digits in the team’s final nine games of the 2012-13 season. “(Sydney) is a really good scorer,” Wallace said, who started his coaching career as an assistant at McAuley. “She’s really quick and is a very, very good defender. (She and Emily) kind of feed off each other.” Junior Franki Harris and senior Megan Packer are expected to play key roles, but the one to keep your eye on is 6foot-1 freshmen Alexah Chrisman. “She’s a very smart basketball player who’s very coachable,” Wallace said of his prized freshman. “(She) can handle the basketball, so her ability to ball handle and her willingness to learn, she’s picking things up quickly and is really starting to grasp everything.” The Mohawks tip off the season Nov. 22 at home against Lakota West.

Mount Healthy Gregory Moore takes over the Lady Owls after spending the last six seasons as head coach of the junior varsity team at Mount Healthy. The Owls are coming off a 15-8 season, but graduated three of their top five scorers, including Ericka Fitzpatrick who was second in the Southwest Ohio Conference last season with15.1 points per game. The good news is Moore returns juniors Anetra Owensby and Carrie Collins, who both started all 23 games last season while averaging more than eight points and five rebounds a contest. Senior guard Lilly Bryant looks to be the one to replace Fitzpatrick at the point guard position, while freshman Nia McCormick is expected to contribute as well. Junior center Markita Ramsey is a transfer from Hughes High School and is expected to play a role in Moore’s scheme immediately. “They show excitement and they are ready for the difficult challenge that lies ahead in the Southwest Ohio Conference this year,” Moore said. The Lady Owls get the season underway Nov. 26 against

their former coach Jim Pugh and his Colerain Cardinals.

Northwest

Brett Van Gaasbeek enters his fourth year as the Lady Knights’ coach and is coming off a 2-20 (0-14 Southwest Ohio Conference) campaign last season. The good news is he returns nearly his entire roster, minus his leading scorer Alexis Murphy, who tore her ACL during soccer season. Luckily for Van Gaasbeek he gets the services back of senior Antenajia Carter, who is returning from a torn ACL of her own. Joining her in the backcourt is fellow senior Khya Pitts. “The two senior leaders in my mind are Pitts and Carter and the season really does depend on how they respond,” Van Gaasbeek said. “If they step up to the plate and lead the team, we’re going to have some success. If they start to get frustrated and start pointing fingers, we aren’t going to go anywhere.” Junior Dayna Wickersham (6-0) gives the Lady Knights some size under the hoop and the addition of Linaya Gresham, who transferred from Deer See HOOPS, Page A9

Top-seeded Loveland ends Northwest’s dream season By Tom Skeen tskeen@communitypress.com

After scoring on its first two possessions of the game, Northwest was held scoreless over the final three quarters en route to a 45-14 loss to Loveland Nov.15 in the Division II, Region 6 semifinals at Lakota West. Loveland held a Knights’ offense that led the Southwest Ohio Conference in yards per game (387.3) during the regular season to just 177 total yards. “We fought as hard as we could for a half,” Northwest coach Nate Mahon said. “They’re too tough on offense. We just couldn’t stop them. They’re a very complete team and that’s just the way it goes. But we’ve got nothing to be ashamed of.” The Knights finish the season 9-3 and notched the team’s first playoff victory in school history after beating Harrison 5635 Nov. 7. The 14 points scored by the Knights were the only points allowed by the Tigers since a 63-15 win over Walnut Hills Oct. 18. Running back DeVohn Jackson scored the first touchdown for the Knights on their opening possession, and senior quarterback Cory Roberson tied the game at 14 after a 3-yard rushing score. Roberson finished12 of 27 passing for 93 yards and ran 16 times for 31 yards and a touchdown. The Knights are now 1-3 all-time in the postseason.

Colerain It wasn’t the start coach Tom Bolden and his Colerain Cardinals wanted, but the final score is all that matters. The sixth-seeded Cards trailed No.14 Pickerington Central 10-0 in the second quarter, but rallied to outscore the Tigers 38-10 over the final two and a half quarters en route to a 38-20 win Nov. 16 in the second-round of the Division I, Region 2 playoffs at Dayton’s Welcome Stadium. “… I told the guys to trust in what we’re doing,” Bolden said. “We played about as bad as we could in the first quarter and started making our adjustments in the second

quarter and the kids responded well.” The victory sets up a playoff rematch with Moeller Nov. 23 in the regional semifinals. The Crusaders beat Colerain 24-21 last season in the regional final. It will mark the seventh time the two teams have met in the postseason.

Senior linebacker Tegray Scales intercepted a pass from Pickerington Central quarterback Colby Simkins with 2:34 left in the first half with his team trailing 10-3 to turn the momentum. Four plays later quarterback Kelvin Cook hit Deshaunte Jones over the middle of the field for an 18-yard touchdown to knot the game at 10 going into the half. “It was huge,” Bolden said of the interception. “It was probably the play of the game and that’s Tegray for you. He’s a dynamic football player and that’s what great football players do; they make plays.” Colerain took the lead for good on its first pos-

session of the third quarter on a patented Cook touchdown run that went 54 yards as he ducked, weaved and spun out of the grasp of multiple Tiger defenders to give his team a 17-10 advantage. “I just seen that their (linebacker) tried to take (full back) DeTuan (Smith-Moore) and I just bounced it outside and I was able to make a play,” Cook said. Colerain will look to improve to 13-0 next week with a trip to the state final four on the line. “It will be what’s great about high school football in Cincinnati and Ohio,” Bolden said of the matchup with Moeller. “It will be an absolute battle.”

Mount Healthy

Mount Healthy sophomore quarterback David Montgomery hit wide receiver DeShawn Jackson in the corner of the end zone for a 26-yard touchdown pass with 1:11 to play in the game to lift the Owls to a 13-10 win over Winton Woods Nov. 15 at

Lockland Stadium. “That’s the first thing that went through my head; we won,” Jackson said. “(The pass) was right where it needed to be and I had to go up there and make a play.” The touchdown reception was Jackson’s lone catch of the game and just one of four completions for Montgomery, who also ran for a touchdown and threw three interceptions. “(Montgomery) struggled a little bit tonight,” Mount Healthy coach Arvie Crouch said. “I was a little disappointed in the first half with him, but that one counted and that’s what matters.” Mount Healthy will play Loveland Nov. 22 at a site yet to be determined. After the Montgomery-to-Jackson touchdown it looked as though the Warriors would get one more chance, but senior Mike Edwards fumbled the ensuing kickoff and the Owls recovered the ball at the Warrior 24yard line. The Owls were outgained162-150 and lost the turnover battle 5-2, but all that matters is the final score. “We talk about character a lot and believing in each other and doing things right no matter who’s looking, or if anybody is looking,” Crouch said. “Just make the right decisions and that’s what we preach to our kids. When you do those things good things happen to you and good things happened to us tonight.”

Park, will give Van Gaasbeek some much needed depth. A player to keep your eye on is 5-foot-10 freshmen Fatimah Shabazz. “She’ll be an impact player for us as a freshmen,” Van Gaasbeek said. “She has long arms, she’s got speed (and) she has court awareness that’s well beyond her years.” The Lady Knights begin the season Nov. 23 at home against Finneytown.

Roger Bacon

Dave Henke enters his second season as Roger Bacon’s coach and is coming off a 3-18 campaign. Sophomore Julia Kidd returns as the team’s leading scorer from last sea-

son where she averaged 4.3 points per game. Kidd is joined by returning starters Ashton Lindner and Becca Deburger, who combined to average 5.0 points and 7.3 rebounds per game a season ago. Junior Anna Hoeh should see an expanded role this season after posting three points and more than three rebounds a contest last season. “We will be very young,” Henke said. “We graduated three seniors and have no returning seniors, but we have three returning starters and large freshmen and sophomore classes so we will be much deeper than last season and more athletic.” The Spartans get things underway Nov. 23 when they host Clark Montessori.

The consolidation with River City will play a big role in the organization’s next step, of getting out in the community and building a large fan base.

Now, Kentucky soccer fans will migrate north to follow their favorite players. The Saints have a good understanding of what they need to do to build soccer interest in this region. It goes beyond just performing on the pitch. Satterwhite hopes that the merger with the River City Legends will have a trickle-down effect on youth soccer in the region, which in turn will broaden the organization’s fan and sponsor base.

Starting a professional soccer team in Cincinnati is a challenging endeavor. Many have tried and, ultimately, fell short of their goals. David Satterwhite and the Cincinnati Saints hope that a recent merger with Louisville’s River City Legends will boost the Saints’ fortunes and lead to longevity. The Saints have been around since 2009, providing professional men’s and women’s teams as well as a youth program. The Saints have partnered with the Legends and will play the 2013-14 season in the Professional Arena Soccer League premier division as the River City Saints. The partnership will broaden the reach of both programs and should increase the organization’s chances of moving up in the professional ranks. “As we start to look for players outside of the city, we are going to continue to set the bar higher and higher every year. By continuing to set the bar higher and higher, this means that Cincinnati’s youth players will be able to see a higher level of play, right here in their own backyard,” said Satterwhite, the Saints’ president and CEO.

“Each year additional retailers are open on Thanksgiving Day. Kroger’s has done it for years thank goodness. While I probably will not do any shopping that day I do not begrudge those that do shop or for those stores that are open. ‘ I do hope the workers at those retail stores open on Thanksgiving are making significant holiday pay. Go Figure!” T.D.T.

“I think the extended hours are horrible - so unfair to the store employees who will have no time at all with their families, and so wrong to commercialize a holiday to the point that it disappears altogether. “But we the consumers have brought this upon ourselves, with our willingness first to get up at dawn on Friday and then go out at midnight on Thanksgiving. “Next year I am sure stores will be open all day. “The only way to end this is to simply not go. I have never shopped on this weekend, at all. I wish others would also spend this time with family. “The retailers will offer the deals later if we just don’t respond to the Thanksgiving sales.” J.R.B.

NEXT QUESTION Do you think President Obama will be able to keep his promise that Americans will be able to keep canceled health insurance policies for a year as companies and consumers adjust to the new demands of the health care law. Why or why not? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to northwestpress@communitypress.com with Chatroom in the subject line.

“This is a very stupid idea and no I will not play into the greed of corporations. What is Thanksgiving but a day of thanks when families can get together? Now I hear that Krogers is going to be open ’til 5 p.m. to accommodate late shopping needs. “Corporations are becoming less and less family oriented and the stupid people that keep playing into their hands and shopping are just as much to fault. “Why do we keep pushing society to the needs of greed? What is the old saying: put off today what you can do tomorrow. “Wake up people, if no one shows up on holidays to shop, I’m sure the stores will extend the sales to the following day to entice all your shopping needs. “Don’t be stupid, play it smart - all you’re going to do is complain about the crowds, salespeople, and that you could not find what you wanted anyway.”

According to the Family Justice Center Alliance, most criminal and civil justice systems make it difficult for victims to seek help and unintentionally wear them down. Victims are required to travel from office to office and wait for services that may be needed immediately. Victims often have to repeat their story over and over in order to “qualify” for assistance or even to be able to talk to professionals and advocates. Knowledge is power when people have the resources

available to make safe and positive choices. By having the partners under one roof for a period of time, it gives a victim answers right away and a direction to go or to try to put pieces back together. Domestic violence abusers typically dominate over their victim, physically and or mentally. The Family Justice Center allows a victim to ask questions and get information from the professional organizations and stay anonymous if they want to. Domestic violence victims have an anxiety and a fear that can be reduced when they have support and services available to them. The Family

Higher education’s lower standards hurt students The Fisher decision in Texas has caused me to do additional thinking about education. Some people may take what I am going to say as prejudiced or against social progress. That is certainly not my intention. There are serious wrongs in our education system. The use of affirmative action to level college enrollments is a serious mistake. Inner city schools are failing their students by not giving them standards equal to said better schools in suburbia. When a future student is selected because he or she was in the top 10 percent of one of those failing high schools, that student may be at a serious disadvantage when compared to the other students. I have great admiration for those few who recognize this failure. It was not of their making and they must accept the challenge to perform to acceptable standards. Self esteem and hard work along with encouragement from the faculty will work wonders. When I was teaching at a small rural community college, many of my students were from low income homes and were juniors and seniors at the local high school. They

were given the opportunity to go to college by the school board and encouraged by their parents to take this chalEdward lenge. Levy As a volunCOMMUNITY teer, my rePRESS GUEST COLUMNIST ward was to see them succeed. It was with great pleasure that I saw them go on to bachelor’s and higher degrees. Writing a letter of recommendation for them was not a task, but an affirmation that education was a cooperation between the student, their family and a teacher who prized their future. It was there that I became aware that it is not what goes into the college that counts, but what comes out of it. For every problem there has to be a solution. Here is mine. Every applicant to college should be given a random application number that has no identifiers. The only qualifier should be in the case of an all male or female institution. A standardized test should be used for qualification.

Certain allowances may be made for children of alumni or donors. But, those allowances should require advance notice to all applicants. Acceptances would then be made based on the scores on the admission test. If dormitory space is limited, then adjustments would be made for proper sleeping arrangements. Then, a final admission adjustment could be made by selecting the next best applicants by sex. The advantage to this type of system is that it would cause public education in the inner city to actually teach the students. Each system would be graded by the percentage of students that applied and were accepted into college. Those schools would have a strong incentive to see that the parents are involved in the education of their children. My final qualification is that each college would have to make public the percentage of students that graduate and the number of graduates that found employment within four months of graduation. It is time to make college worth the increasing price. Edward Levy is a resident of Montgomery.

Tips to keep the dogs away from the Thanksgiving table There is no meal of the year that quite compares to that of Thanksgiving. As you’re preparing for your holiday, if you do not want your dog bumping you at the dinner table, the time to plan for success is now. Remember if a behavior reoccurs it is because it has been reinforced. So, if you know in advance that your dog’s bumping at the table behavior is very probable, here are a few ideas: You can rearrange what happens in the environment immediately before the behavior is set into motion to give less value to the bumping behavior and more value to resting. Some suggestions include satiating your dog before you sit down by feeding him in advance or redirecting

his attention by giving him a tasty steak bone to chew on or a foraging toy that will keep his attention for Lisa awhile, or Desatnik taking him for COMMUNITY PRESS a long walk GUEST COLUMNIST prior to the meal. You can also teach your dog in advance an alternative behavior that will produce for him the same or more value than what he would get if he bumped you at the table – while removing any positive consequences to the bumping behavior. So, begin by teaching the alternative behavior (like

sitting or laying down). Once on cue you can shape the behavior for longer durations before delivering reinforcement. Then, you can cue him to do the wanted behavior before you sit down to a meal and reinforce it. At the same time, if he begs, you can simply push your plate in to the center of the table and turn your back to him while sitting. Practice. Practice. Practice. Always make the wanted behavior easier and more valuable than the unwanted behavior.

Former hospital could be crime lab Gannett News Service

H

amilton County commissioners have known for more than two years that the county needs a new crime lab. But the county’s shrinking budget has made the $56 million renovation impossible. Hamilton County Coroner Dr. Lakshmi Kode Sammarco is pitching a new plan, one with a price tag that’s a third of what it once was. She wants to take over vacated Mercy Mount Airy Hospital and renovate the first floor. The estimated cost: $21.5 million. Commissioners would likely have to borrow at least some of the money. There is no specific plan on where to get the money, but county leaders are hoping the University of Cincinnati buys the current lab in Corryville, which could help pay for the new crime lab. The new plan is a scaleddown version of a previous Mercy Mount Airy plan that included space for the sheriff’s office and Cincinnati Police Department. Commissioners have until the end of January to make a decision. Catholic Health Partners had wanted an answer this week, but county administrators pushed for more time. Every month the building sits vacant costs the hospital $100,000. “This is our best chance in the near future to get a new

coroner’s office and crime lab,” Sammarco said. “This is something we cannot afford to lose.” Without the gift of the hospital building – valued at $11.4 million, according the Hamilton County Auditor’s Office – the project wouldn’t be possible for at least five or 10 years, Sammarco said. Hamilton County Commissioner Greg Hartmann said: “This is as close to a deal as we’ve ever had.” Hamilton County Board of Commissioners President Chris Monzel said the county is looking at what it will need in the future. “The question is: Do we need a county crime lab?” said Monzel, a Republican like Hartmann. Other options: letting the state handle local lab work or forming a regional lab, as other Ohio counties have done. Any decision, Monzel said, will include a cost analysis that looks at whether the move is in the best interest of the citizens. Todd Portune, the board’s only Democrat, called it a “very good plan.” But, he added, the conversation must include law enforcement agencies. The recession ravaged Hamilton County’s operating budget. Adjusted for inflation, the county’s budget is a third the size it was a decade ago. Next year will be the first since 2008 most departments won’t have to make cuts, but that’s partly because commis-

sioners took $6.6 million from the county’s indigent care levy to cover some sheriff’s office expenses. At the end of the year the county’s rainy day fund is projected at $23.5 million – 12 percent of this year’s $195 million operations budget. No money has been set aside for large capital projects. When the current crime lab was built in 1972 it was meant to house half the number of people working there now – 50 people. DNA testing didn’t exist then. A 2011 investigation by the Cincinnati Enquirer revealed the county’s crime lab was cramped and understaffed, putting criminal convictions at risk. Evidence that could be used in trials was stored in open corridors, leaving it vulnerable to contamination. The lab was so understaffed that some cases were never investigated. Sammarco says that all remains true. A 2012 study by Detroitbased Crime Lab Design, a consulting firm brought in by the county, warned overcrowding was “jeopardizing the integrity” of evidence. The study’s authors suggested three options: a $16.5 million renovation to the current lab; a $35 million addition; or a new $56 million crime lab that would be double the size of the current Corryville facility. “The best thing Hamilton County can do is get a new lab, which they urgently need,” Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said then. The new plan would give the coroner’s office a new morgue, crime lab and autopsy suites. The coroner’s office would take over 200,000 square feet, half of which would be renovated and be used immediately. The other half would be saved for future growth. The current Corryville office is 35,000 square feet. The county, Sammarco said, could sell its current building to neighbor University of Cincinnati. There have been no concrete discussions about sale price, but the university is interested, Sammarco said. University spokesman Greg Hand said there have been “some discussions” with the

Kelly Ashton-Hand, forensic analyst, works in the DNA section of the Hamilton County's Crime Lab. When the current crime lab was built in 1972 it was meant to house half the number of people working there now – 50 people. DNA testing didn’t exist.CARA OWSLEY/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

county about facilities and service swaps in relation to the coroner’s office. But there is no firm plan, he said. The university owns the land the office sits on, which it leases to the county. That lease doesn’t end for 58 more years. The county owns the building. Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters, whose office relies on the crime lab’s testing, said, “A new crime lab would be great. If we had the money for it, I’d support it.” Michele Young, who lives in the county, founded the Hamil-

ton County Committee to Keep the Public Safe to help Sammarco sell the $21.5 million plan. “Nobody has said they don’t want this,” Young said. “Our goal is to bring the support together.” The group is reaching out to law enforcement agencies and business leaders. “The crime lab is essential to good law enforcement,” Young said. “Dr. Sammarco came up with a win-win plan. We’ll never see a gift like this again.”

The old Mercy Mount Airy Hospital could become Hamilton County's new crime lab under a proposal by county Coroner Dr. Lakshmi Kode Sammarco. The estimated cost of this project would be $21.5 million.TONY JONES/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Thanksgiving recipes feature cranberries, pumpkin ably most, to bake out, substitute 1 ⁄4 cup water or cranberry juice. When we were Rita kids, mom Heikenfeld had us kids pick RITA’S KITCHEN through the berries and remove “tails” and foreign bits of whatever that might be in the bag. That was in the dark ages! Now cranberries are so well processed that all you have to do is wash them.

Next week, our Community Press kitchens will be buzzing with activity, from drying the bread for the stuffing to making “must have” traditional pumpkin desserts. A reminder: Give your frozen turkey enough time to thaw. My experience is that it takes a lot longer to thaw than the package states. If it’s not thawed in time, put the whole thing, wrapped, in cool water and change the water about every half hour until thawed. Also remember those who are alone, or can’t get out. Send a card, give them a call or, best idea, invite them to your table. And no matter how you spend this holiday, remember also that having some place to go is home, having someone to love is family and having both is a blessing.

1 bag fresh cranberries, washed and picked over 11⁄2 cups sugar or to taste 1 ⁄4 cup brandy or cognac 1 ⁄4 cup frozen orange concentrate, thawed but not diluted 1 cup chopped walnuts

Mix together everything but nuts. Sprinkle nuts on top and push them in a bit. Bake uncovered until berries have absorbed most of the liquid and most have popped, about 45 minutes. Can be done ahead. Great served warm, room temperature or chilled.

Rita’s do-ahead, baked candied cranberries Another recipe that changes each time I make it. I really like this version. If you substitute Splenda, use the kind that measures out just like sugar.

Deregulation confusing, aggravating to homeowners Deregulation has led to lower utility rates for Ohio customers, but its also led to a lot of confusion and aggravation among some homeowners. Some are confused by the variety of different rates offered, while others are aggravated at the house calls and phone calls they are receiving. Dozens of utility companies have entered Ohio looking for business. The sales tactics of some have led people to believe they were getting called upon by Duke Energy itself. Consumers tell me when they questioned why the salesman wanted to see their utility bill they were told, “Oh,

it’s all right, I work with Duke Energy.” In fact, while Duke does bill on behalf of Howard these utilAin ity compaHEY HOWARD! nies, the companies are actually in competition with Duke. Duke Energy’s Sally Thelen said Duke is aware of this and consumers should not be pressured. “Some of the concerns have been the aggressive tactics. Some folks have told us they’re feeling bullied. I would advise customers to read the contract,” Thelen

said. Some of the contracts have grace periods allowing you to switch once you sign up, while other contracts have a cancellation fee if you choose to switch. In addition to making house calls, some utility companies are sending out letters offering incentives to get you to sign up. Incentives include such things as frequent flier miles and a $50 debit card. But, perhaps most annoying for some homeowners are the phone calls which can be incessant. “It got to where every time we’d sit down to eat it seemed like they had a camera in the house because that’s when the phone would ring,” said Joe Ann Kern. “I’ve just had them show up at my door several times over the summer always wanting me to switch, but I always turned them down. I don’t really understand it,” Robert Gillum said. Well, in order to understand it you have to check page two of your Duke Energy bill. There, you’ll find Duke’s Price To Compare section, which tells you the rate Duke is charging for electricity. Currently, it’s 6.13 cents per kilowatt hour. Dozens of companies offer competing electric rates and the best way to

find them is to check the Ohio Public Utilities Commission website for its Apples to Apples Price Comparison chart. I found comparable rates for as low as 4.95 cents per kilowatt hour. But, you need to check the terms of the offer to see how long the contract will last and whether there are any cancellation charges. Next, you can check Duke’s price for natural gas, which is found at the top of page two of your Duke bill. It says Duke’s price is .5596 cents. Compare that to the PUCO Comparison Chart for natural gas prices and you’ll find rates as low as .495 cents. But, once again, you need to carefully check the terms of the contract including the contractual period and cancellation charges. If you switch your electric or gas from Duke Energy nothing will change with your bill – or the connections to your home. Duke will still deliver the electricity and the gas through the same lines and the “Transportation Charges” will continue to show up on your bill.

ODA gives Crowley state dental award Dr. Joseph Crowley, a general dentist in Monfort Heights, has been awarded the Ohio Dental Association Distinguished Dentist Award. “Joe Crowley is a wellrespected leader in Cincinnati, across the state, and at the national level,” said Dr. Mark Bronson, a

past president of the ODA. “He has been a mentor to me in many ways as I have modeled my career in organized dentistry in his footsteps. ” Crowley received his DDS from The Ohio State University in 1976 and Crowley now has a private practice in Cincinnati. Crowley has served in a number of leadership positions with councils and advocacy programs of the American Dental Association, Ohio Dental Association and Cincinnati Dental Society, including stints as president of the ODA and president of the Cincinnati Dental Society. Crowley also is a fellow of the American College of Dentistry, the International College of Dentistry and the Pierre Fauchard Academy, and is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry. Crowley said his favorite part about being a dentist has always been patient care. “Doing the actual patient care, doing the dentistry, is really the high point of where I’ve been in my career. I love that,” he said. “I think it’s pretty interesting to be able to affect how people are able to have good things happen to them. Just the patient care is probably the thing that stands out still as the number one thing in my career.”

The Westside Community Band is celebrating the beginning of the holiday season while also supporting a worthy cause. Community members are invited to usher in the sounds of the season at the band’s annual Christmas concert, set for 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec.1, in the theater at the College of Mount St. Joseph, 5701 Delhi Road. Not only does the concert help people get into the holiday spirit, but he said it also benefits Toys for Tots. Kenny Bierschenk, director of the band, said this is the fifth or sixth year the band has been involved in supporting Toys for Tots. Those who attend the concert are encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys to help the U.S. Marine Corps in its effort to make Christmas brighter

In the holiday spirit The Community Press is counting down the holidays by running stories about the people, events and programs that make it a special time of year in the Western Hills, Delhi and Price Hill areas. If you are involved with a giving or charitable organization, Christmas show or other holiday event or tradition (including family traditions), tell us about it. Send an e-mail to rmaloney@ communitypress.com.

for less fortunate children in the Cincinnati area. Monetary donations for Toys for Tots are also accepted. Former Springfield Township resident Mary Artmayer, a trumpet player who has been a member of the community

band for 30 years, said it’s the season of giving and she’s proud to be involved in the band and its benefit concert. Bierschenk said the holiday concert and collection for Toys for Tots has been successful each year, and the band wants to make it bigger every year. The 55-member band will perform Christmas music of all types, he said, mixing traditional carols with modern holiday tunes. “This is usually a wellattended, nice concert,” Artmayer said. “It’s familiar music. People like to hear Christmas music, it puts you in the mood for the holidays.” Admission to the concert is free.
