She is Delhi’s ‘Mother Teresa’ Recognizing those who go out of their way to help a neighbor or friend

By Kurt Backscheider

DELHI TWP. — In a small condominium community comprised of mostly senior citizens, Carolyn Kerley said her neighbor Rose Freeman is their fairy godmother, angel and Mother Teresa. “Or any other superlative name you would like to give her,” Kerley said. Freeman is the first person in the neighborhood people call when someone is sick or dying, and Kerley said she makes extra food and delivers it to neighbors who are overcome with grief or illness. She also collects money from residents in order to purchase, package and deliver recovery gifts or send cards to neighbors, Kerley said. “Often times she does not have enough in the kitty and makes up the shortfall herself,” Kerley said. She said Freeman gives her cuttings from her front yard and regularly distributes herbs from her abundance to neighbors. Every day Freeman delivers the mail to a woman in the community who has trouble walking, and Kerley said she’s told Freeman routinely brings the woman homemade food as well. She said her caring neighbor also makes weekly visits to residents at Bayley retirement community, and has “adopted” one woman there who has no family in the area. “Rose also knits prayer shawls for people at Bayley and knits hats for newborns at Good Samaritan Hospital,” Kerley said. “I am sure there is much, much more to say about Rose, but she keeps many things close to the vest. “All in all, Rose is a completely wonderful person who deserves some public recognition,” Kerley said. Freeman said she doesn’t think she does anything special for her neighbors, she simply helps them out when she sees a need. “A lot of people just need a visit,” she said. “They really appreciate someone coming in and spending some time with them.” She said she’s grateful she’s able to be there for her neighbors. “I thank the Lord I can do it,” Freeman said. “I get a lot out of it and it makes me feel good. I’m just appreciative I can help someone.”

Westwood man looks out for his neighbors

dent Ed Whaley is deserving of being recognized as a neighbor who cares. Sampson said Whaley is a good mechanic and freely gives of his time to help others on the street with their car troubles. When he’s not under the hood of a car, he said Whaley cuts grass for neighbors who cannot mow their lawns and he cuts the grass at a vacant property on the street. Whaley also serves as the unofficial block watch captain of the neighborhood, watching peoples’ homes when they are on vacation and keeping an eye open for suspicious people who likely don’t belong on the quiet street, Sampson said. “He is always helping neighbors whenever he can,” Samp-

son said. Whaley said he doesn’t think he does anything out of the ordinary for his neighbors. He said just tries to be a good member of the community. “It’s called humanity,” he said. “Be kind to one another like God wants us to be. In my religion we’re all brothers and sisters, and we should be compassionate and help each other. “It’s the way I was raised,” Whaley said.

asset to our Delhi community in so many ways,” Groen said. Mr. Sanker is the president of the St. Vincent de Paul Society at St. Dominic Church and his active participation and efforts to raise money for its operation has aided hundreds of families over the years, Groen said. Until recently, he said Mr. Sanker volunteered as a driver for the Meals on Wheels program and he still often provides transportation to help friends and acquaintances keep their medical and dental appointments. Every Christmas he supplies trucks to carry Giving Tree gifts to lower income parishes. Groen said Mr. Sanker is also a server at St. Dominic Masses and he can also be found selling raffle tickets and promoting other fundraisers after Masses.

East Price Hill resident Mary Ann Frisby has been volunteering to help others since 1954, the year she and her late husband were married. Now she spends much of her time helping at St. William Church and making sure friends who don’t drive get to their appointments. KURT BACKSCHEIDER/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

“Whenever Father Jim needs help with a project, Bob is front and center volunteering his services,” Groen said. As for Mrs. Sanker, Groen said she’s been known to prepare and provide meals for people who have been victims of misfortune. “She is also the power behind all of Bob’s efforts,” Groen said. “Her love and support make all of the above possible.” Whenever needed, he said the couple is ready to lend a helping hand. “These two fine folks are truly Neighbors Who Care,” Groen See NEIGHBORS, Page A3

said. Joan Sanker said volunteering in the community is in her husband’s blood. “He has to give back,” she said. “That’s just what he does.” Bob Sanker is a retired Delhi Township firefighter. He started with the department when it was still a volunteer outfit and eventually worked his way up to serve as the township’s assistant fire chief. “I spent 43 years on the Delhi fire department,” he said. “That’s where I first started helping people.” A graduate of St. Dominic School, he said volunteering at the parish is his way of giving back. “We help a lot of families here in Delhi,” he said. “Our parish is very

generous, and I thank Father Jim, Father Chris and Deacon Mark for all they do.” Mrs. Sanker said she simply serves as her husband’s backup when he’s busy. “We just enjoy helping people,” she said. “We don’t do it because we have to, we do it because we want to.”

Price Hill woman has served her community for nearly 60 years Catherine McNamee said her friend Mary Ann Frisby never slows down. “She is busy every day,” McNamee said of the longtime Price Hill resident. “Mary Ann continues to be the ‘mother hen,’ the caretaker for many others.” McNamee said Frisby selflessly gives of her time to drive around several friends who no longer

drive themselves. She said Frisby makes sure they get to doctor appointments, physical therapy sessions and church, and she also helps them run errands and make shopping trips. When she isn’t serving as a chauffeur, McNamee said her friend volunteers at St. William Church, where she used to be actively involved in the parish’s St. Vincent de Paul society. While she no longer lifts heavy boxes of canned food or stocks pantry shelves, McNamee said Frisby still assists the society by answering phone calls and providing folks with information about how to receive assistance. “Three times a year Mary Ann volunteers for a big mailing for a nonprofit group called Retrouvaille, who helps couples with their hurting marriages,” McNamee said. “All by herself, she

folds the letters, stuffs the envelopes, seals the envelopes, puts stamps on the envelopes and even takes the envelopes to the post office for mailing. She has been a special gift to this organization.” Frisby also occasionally helps count medications for distribution to Third World countries at Our Lady of Victory, does mailings for the Victory PTA group and still finds time to visit sick elderly patients in the hospitals, McNamee said. “She is a happy-golucky person who would give you her last shirt off of her back and do anything for you,” McNamee said. “Anyone who knows her is better off for the wonderful experience.” Frisby said she’s been volunteering her time

ever since she and her late husband were married, which was in 1954. “It’s a good feeling for me,” she said. In addition to St. William, she said she’s been active at several area parishes, including Assumption, Annunciation, Resurrection and Holy Family. “I love helping,” she said. “It’s a pleasure.” Frisby said she was both surprised and thrilled to learn someone nominated her to be recognized. “I’m proud of what I’ve done in my life, and I’m still doing it,” she said.

son is a true example of what it means to give back to the community. The nonprofit organization nominated Anderson for Neighbors Who Care recognition because of his volunteerism as an information technology expert at the Literacy Network. The nomination letter stated, “Brian’s work has consisted of networking computers, setting up the volunteer management database and managing all software. Brian’s most recent work includes integrating iPads into the adult literacy curriculum, which are utilized to reinforce class learning, and leading the recent office move.” It went on to say Anderson has more than 20 years of information technology experience, including work at Seton High School and in the Cincinnati Public Schools. He retired to Hidden Valley, Ind., and spends his free time with his family and volunteering at the Literacy Network. “Brian enjoys giving back to the community he once worked in and contributes to improving the lives of students at the Literacy Network,” the letter read. Kathy Ciarla, president of the organization, said with the reliance of technology in today’s world, Anderson’s expertise and dependability is crucial to the success of Literacy Network. “He is always willing to help us whenever we need him,” Ciarla said. “For a nonprofit on a limited budget, we depend on volunteers and Brian is the perfect example of how you can give of your time and talent to help others.” See NEIGHBORS, Page A3

MORE CARING NEIGHBORS These caring West Side neighbors were also nominated this year.


“A few weeks ago, my husband and I pulled into our driveway to see the back door standing open. Uh oh, the dog-“Our dog, Syd, is 16-years-old, deaf, and has fused bones in his back which make walking difficult. Yet, his sense of adventure is healthy as it ever was – he'll always go roaming if he gets the chance. “It was a rainy, cold night, and I felt so bad for Syd, happy at a chance to travel, but quickly getting tired, lost and lonely, and at risk from passing cars that he cannot hear. “We searched the house and were just getting ready to head out looking for him when our phone rang. It was Oak Hills Animal Hospital – our dog was found by our wonderful neighbor, Dell Arnold! Mrs. Arnold had noticed Syd in her yard, and, from his crooked gait, suspected he had been hit by a car. She coaxed him out of the rain, and took him to Oak Hills, where they warmed him up and kept him safe until we could pick him up. “Mrs. Arnold, the first grateful thought of my Thanksgiving was thanks that you saved my dog! Thank you for caring for the most loving dog in the world! I nominate you for Neighbor who Cares No. 1!” – Colleen M. Wood


Connie Vogt said she doesn’t know anyone as kind and giving as her Delhi Township neighbor, Bruce Cortright. “He has been retired for about two years and does nothing but keep himself busy,” Vogt said. Cortright volunteers with the Western Wildlife Corridor, where he serves as a board member and helps clear invasive plants, leads hikes, acquires and preserves green space in western Hamilton County, maintains hiking trails and helps with community events, Vogt said. He’s also a member of the board of the Friends of the

JANUARY 1, 2014 • DELHI-PRICE HILL PRESS • A3 Little Miami State Park, and Vogt said there he volunteers on the chainsaw crew for the biking and hiking trail, clears honeysuckle and serves on the emergency response team to clear debris following storms. Cortright serves food to those in need every Friday at Our Daily Bread, and Vogt said he also volunteers weekly at Milestones Equestrian Achievement Program, a nonprofit therapeutic horseback riding program for individuals with disabilities. As a member of St. John’s Westminster Union Church, he attends mission trips and serves on the church’s cemetery committee and building and facilities committee, Vogt said. “If anyone in the neighborhood needs something he is right there,” Vogt said. “Hats off to Bruce Cortright. There will be a special place in heaven for you.”

“Linda is the best listener too, and that is why so many friends and neighbors come to her with concerns and troubles. People know that she will pray for them. They know her heart will be moved and she will take their burdens upon herself, and try to help them along the way with a smile, a hug, a note of support and love, or perhaps even a meal. She is the master of surprises too and so very thoughtful. “Linda is active at St. Catharine Parish where she builds community by helping organize the neighborhood block party sponsored by the church. She coordinates the Lenten directed retreats and distributes communion, and

even helps to bring the word of God to those who are poor in spirit at a neighborhood nursing home. “You will never hear a swear word leave the lips of Linda and perhaps that is why people are drawn to her. She treats everyone with respect. She is ALL good.” – Mary Herbers


Delhi Township resident Al Sprang said very thankful to have Dan Thompson as a neighbor. “I believe he is not only a good neighbor to me, but to others in the neighborhood also,” Sprang said. “I can’t thank the guy enough.”

Sprang said Thompson brings his trash can in for him every Monday, and always makes sure any delivery packages and newspapers are on his porch and easily accessible. When it snows, he said Thompson brings his snow blower over and clears his driveway and walkways. Sprang said he clears snow from the driveways of several other neighbors as well. “If anyone deserves to be recognized, he does,” Sprang said. “If you talk to any of the other neighbors around, they’ll you the same about Dan.”

Bridgetown resident Richard Perrmann said he’s not sure what the neighborhood would do without Keith McCarthy. Perrmann said he lives in a cul-de-sac of which about 90 percent of the residents are senior citizens. “Keith makes it so much easier for all,” Perrmann said. “He offers to cut grass, clean gutters and is an all-around handy man for all of us. “During the winter months he gets up about 3 a.m. and clears all the driveways of snow before he himself goes to work,” Perrmann said.

Linda Raphael “There are so many wonderful people in our Westside community but there is one who stands out as having a heart of gold. Anyone who has been in the company of Linda Raphael knows that she is a real blessing. “As a crossing guard on a busy street corner in Westwood, she carefully tends to the people in the path of traffic. She has done this for years and takes this responsibility seriously, sometimes even putting herself in danger for the safety of the pedestrians. She takes an interest and shares a kind word to all who she crosses, young and old alike, and she tries to make her interaction with them uplifting and positive. She is great with encouraging words!

Stolen Nativity baby Jesus returned year later Facebook page this morning: “Sometimes, something happens that restores your faith in humanity. This morning, our stolen Baby Jesus, the original one made by Paul Young, Sr., was returned. Maybe the real Jesus got to them.” The funeral home received a call early in the morning from one of its flower delivery people, saying there was a doll outside the flower door in the rain. When workers investigated, they found the missing baby Jesus figure. Roger Dietrich, a lifelong visitor to the nativity scene, said he’s grateful

MT. HEALTHY — The baby Jesus figure stolen from a popular Mount Healthy Nativity scene was returned Friday, Dec. 20. The baby Jesus wax figure, more than 65 years old, was one of a kind, hand-carved by Paul R. Young Sr. The figure was reported missing early Christmas morning last year from the Nativity scene in the front yard of the Paul R. Young Funeral Home, 7345 Hamilton Ave. The funeral home posted this message on its

When we got home my mom would say ‘you just missed Santa’ and all our presents would be there. “Now my son has a little girl and we can take her to see it. It was always part of my life, and always will be.”

She puts

her team first and always does what is asked of her. She is always positive and helps to motivate others around her.

CINCINNATI — Mark Miller is starting to have the same impact at the college level as he did while at Elder High School. The 2010 Elder graduate is coming off his junior season in which the quarterback led the Ohio Dominican University Panthers to an undefeated regular season, a Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference title and the school’s second playoff Miller berth in school history (their first since joining the Division II ranks in 2011). “It was definitely a season to remember,” Miller said. “Especially since coming in my freshmen year we were 2-8, kind of the new guys in the GLIAC and just to see the quick transition from that year up to this season was pretty amazing.” After red-shirting his freshman year, Miller has led the Panthers to an 18-4 record over the past two seasons earning all-conference honorable mention honors both seasons. “I think the thing that happens in the game of football at (the quarterback) position is the game, as you mature, slows down,” Ohio Dominican head coach Bill Conley said of what has led to Miller’s success. “You process things faster so you don’t get caught up in the

pressure situations like a young quarterback does. You tend to respond to pressure a little better and Mark has done that.” When the Panthers lost to West Texas A&M Nov. 30 in the second round of the Division II football playoff, it was the school’s first loss in 419 days after ending Division II’s longest active win streak. “We try to tuck that in the back of our minds,” Miller said of the streak. “Our goal each week is to go 1-0, that’s our mindset. What happened last week or 15 weeks prior to that, the most important week is the one at hand, and if you win that week, the streak continues and if not, the streak has to start over. Our goal is to win every week regardless of how many we’ve won or lost in a row.” Even as he bounces around from Columbus to Cincinnati over the summer, Miller made time to work with Elder’s starting quarterback Peyton Ramsey over the summer and made it back to The Pit for the first time since graduating to see Ramsey lead Elder to a playoff win over Clayton Northmont this past season. “I think he has a bright future ahead of him,” Miller said of Ramsey. “It’s definitely tough being a quarterback in the (Greater Catholic League), at that competitive level and I can only imagine being the coach’s son at Elder. … Peyton is a great kid, a great athlete and it was exciting for me to go back and watch him play, and I think the sky is the limit for him from here on out.”

Elder grad Vogelsang makes impact on Centre College football By Adam Turer

Sometimes, it pays off to take a chance on yourself. After graduating from Elder in 2010, Erich Vogelsang could have stayed close to home and played at the College of Mount St. Joseph like so many other former Panthers. But he wanted to prove himself somewhere a little further away from home, and decided to enroll at Centre College in Danville, Ky. Vogelsang only knew one other student on campus when he arrived for his first day of football practice in August 2010. After four years of playing for the Colonels, Vogelsang can look back on his decision

with pride. He twice led his team in tackles, was named the 2012 Teel Bruner Award winner as the team’s most valuable defensive player, and was a team captain his senior year. “I’ve been fortunate to have great coaches and players around me my whole life,” Vogelsang said. “I’ve been blessed. The best thing about Centre was my teammates and coaches. The camaraderie we had was unmatchable.” Centre went 28-13 in Vogelsang’s four years, including a 9-2 season with a playoff berth and first round win in 2011. In the 2011 playoff loss to Mount Union, then-sophomore Vogelsang tied for the team lead See FOOTBALL, Page A7

with nine tackles. The Colonels posted winning records in each of Vogelsang’s four seasons. He estimates that the last time he played for a team that finished its season with a losing record, he was in seventh grade. He earned first-team all-conference honors in the Southern Athletic Association following the 2012 and 2013 seasons. In his four years, he totaled 207 tackles.

senior at Elder, to linebacker. The transition to outside linebacker paid immediate dividends. “My sophomore year, I started to make an impact,” Vogelsang said. “I had to grow and mature very quickly as a leader.” The Colonels made a transition in conferences prior to his junior season. That did not deter Vogelsang and his teammates, nor did it deter his parents, who traveled to every single game over his four seasons. Centre boasts one of the more grueling schedules in all of Division III, but the Vogelsangs made treks to Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, and Missouri, among other states, to see

their son play. Now that his playing days are over, Vogelsang knows he will miss the sport that has given him so much joy since he was a little boy growing up in North Bend. The longing will most likely sink in heavy next August, when he is not strapping on his pads for a preseason practice. Continuing his playing days at the next level left him with no regrets. “I would definitely recommend (playing Division III football), especially if you love the game like I do,” said Vogelsang. “It is a great feeling to be able to play for four more years.” The economics major is on track to graduate in the spring.

To make the West Side better

A recent Cincinnati Enquirer report card gave Price Hill a failing grade; causing many to voice their thoughtful opinions in print and online. Danny Henkel encouraged us to, “Hang in There!” noting, “Pete Witte and Jim Grawe are working hard to keep Price Hill viable.” Of course, I am Jim Grawe flattered, and I COMMUNITY PRESS don’t mind GUEST COLUMNIST sharing the spotlight with Pete. So, I offer my own thoughtful commentary; also intended to make the West Side a better place. Danny suggests that our ” historic architecture, some of Cincinnati’s finest, be protected and preserved.” I agree whole-heartedly! What better way to show that the West Side is worth caring about? While some call for more police presence as a way to improve Price Hill, Douglas Elick questions, “Why are some of the worst areas directly adjacent to the police station?” People obviously don’t invest in neighborhoods just

Warsaw Avenue in East Price Hill.

because they are perceived safe, due to police presence. A better question is, “Who will be tomorrow’s residents, and what will attract them?” Five executive directors of local social service agencies collaborated, calling Price Hill a “desirable place; a mixed community of immigrants, longtime residents, and people

who are not rich.” Perhaps the return of the middle class, and some upper class residents would add to the “mix” – making Price Hill even more desirable. I ask these execs, “What will it take for you to move to Price Hill?” Steve Murphy is not so optimistic, saying, “In 10 years the West Side will be home to

closed store fronts.” I wonder. Will our newly anointed West Siders from West Harrison In. be discouraged by Steve’s prediction? Is the “West Side” brand helping us? To boost our West Side moral, Noreen Linneman comments, The East Side is a “ghetto of the soul and spirit.” I’m sure there are East Siders

who share our “West Side Values.” Let’s give them a warm West Side welcome. They could be our neighbors someday. Many believe that politicians and East Siders have long co-conspired the West Side’s perceived demise for self-serving reasons. To overcome this paranoia we should remind ourselves that many West End residents were first “displaced” to the East Side after the construction of I75 in the late 1950s. Chris Gramke says, “Fight the good fight,” adding, “I really don’t like being referred to as a Covedale resident. I live in West Price Hill.” It’s true; the city doesn’t recognize Covedale. But mainstream West Siders do. We understand that the Covedale brand helps to sell the West Side, and that calling Covedale Price Hill will not solve Price Hill’s problems. Email me your thoughts at covedaleneighborhoodassoc to continue the discussion. Jim Grawe is the co-founder of the Covedale Neighborhood Association. He can be reached at

Rita predicts food trends for 2014 At the start of each new year with you, I like to talk about food trends. Locally sourced continues to be a big factor, along with homemade biscuits instead of buns and bread for sandwiches. Another trend is healthier kids meals: yogurt, applesauce and baked fries for fried. Glutenfree (no surprise) items will be abundant in restaurants and Rita at the groHeikenfeld cery. RITA’S KITCHEN Chefs will use nuts as coating for poultry and fish instead of flour. Veggies galore, especially cauliflower, will be cooked simply or with flavorful herbs and spices as mains and sides. Heirloom beans and peanuts are “in” and are easily grown. Peanuts hide under the ground and kids love to harvest these. Rice is big this year. You’ll see a dizzying variety, from instant to brown to the new darling of the food world: Carolina Gold. This is the grandfather of long-grain rice here and, depending upon the way it’s cooked, can be made into fluffy rice or creamy risotto. Tea is here to stay. Get out mom’s tea set and enjoy a relaxing and healthy cup of tea. Tea contains polyphenols,

a lower gluten/protein content than Northern flours and produces a lighter textured biscuit. 2 cups self-rising flour ⁄4 cup shortening 2 ⁄3 to 3⁄4 cup buttermilk Melted butter


Rita’s red beans and rice is her take on the traditional New Year’s Hoppin’ John.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

antioxidants that are good for our heart, teeth, eyes and general good health. As far as wild edibles, I’m right on top of it. I’ve made pine needle tea (high in vitamins A and C) for years and now it’s hit the big time. It has a minty, piney flavor. Look for ground pine needle tea at health food stores. Ditto for sumac lemonade. We have sumac trees (not the poison sumac!) growing along our old country road and in late August they bear a beautiful, cone-shaped red fruit perfect for tart, healthy lemonade. A caution here: Always make a positive identification when picking wild edibles. There are many non-edible look-a-likes out there.

My twist on Hoppin’ John, the traditional New Year’s dish. Rice and beans together make a protein-filled dish. Add sautéed shrimp or chicken for a non-vegetarian meal. Use your favorite beans. 1 very generous cup chopped onion 2-3 teaspoons garlic, minced 2 teaspoons cumin or to taste 2 bay leaves 1 teaspoon chili powder blend or to taste 2 cups rice 2 cans red beans, drained 4 cups vegetable or chicken broth, or bit more if needed Salt and pepper to taste

To stir in after cooking: Favorite greens (If using kale, add when you put rice in as it takes longer to cook). Garnish: Thinly sliced green onions, chopped tomatoes

Film pan with olive oil. Add onion, garlic, cumin, bay and chili powder. Sauté until onion looks almost clear. Add rice, beans and broth. Bring to boil. Cover and lower to a simmer and cook until rice is tender. Remove bay leaves. Health aspects Beans: Lower cholesterol, stabilize blood sugar and reduce risk of cancer and heart disease. Onions and garlic: Great for your heart. Tomatoes: Contains antioxidants and is good for the prostate. Brown rice vs. white: Nutritionally superior, your body absorbs nutrients from brown rice more slowly. Bay: Helps blood sugar levels.

to the Internet and found lots of websites offering loans. After applying at one of them, she received a call saying she was approved for the $2,000 she was requesting. But first, she was told, she had to prove she could cover her first loan payment. She told the lender she wouldn’t send him money before getting the funds. “He answered, ‘No, of course not. We just need to verify you’ll be able to make the payment,’” Krystal wrote. Krystal says she was instructed to go a local drug store, get a Vanilla

Card and load it with $150 so they could verify the funds. “He then had my mother give him the information off the card so he could verify the funds. He told her everything was great and that he needed to place her on hold so he could go ahead and finalize the transaction. He came back on the line and said that, due to her credit, would she be able to verify a second month’s payment for another $150 on the Vanilla Card? She told him, ‘No,’” Krystal wrote. At this point Krystal says she and her mother

Partnership benefits senior transportation needs Bayley, a continuing care retirement community in Delhi will be partnering with Independent Transportation Network Greater Cincinnati beginning in January. Seniors often become isolated in their own homes when they no longer drive. Friends and family members are not always available to meet the needs. ITN’s volunteer based transportation service brings the community together by offering rides every day of the week to our neighbors at rates they can afford. Trips to the hairdresser, shopping or luncheon dates can again be part of the monthly calendar.

Bayley Be Connected membership program is designed to help people live safely and independently in their own homes. It offers discounted services for the home, scheduled social outings and affordable transportation for seniors living in the

community. Thanks to this new partnership, one annual fee will now enroll you in both Bayley Be Connected and the Independent Transportation Network. For more information, call Donna at 513-3475510.

were suspicious, began researching the card and discovered the so-called lender was buying time so he could pull the funds off the Vanilla Reload Card. By the time they began trying to download the funds from the card themselves, the “lender” had already taken all the money. They called the local police who had them contact the Vanilla Network to see if they could learn where the money from the card was released. She was told it had been placed into the account of a pre-paid debit card so the money

you’re likely to get a loan or a credit card even before you apply – especially if you have bad credit, no credit or a bankruptcy. Bottom line, beware of these new methods used to steal your money. Remember, online lending offers are often just scams and a quick way to lose your money. Howard Ain’s column appears bi-weekly in the Community Press newspapers.

She’s not alone, I received a letter from a Harrison area man who also applied for an online loan and was sent to the store to buy a Green Dot Money Pack. He loaded $375 on the card and didn’t realize it was a scam until they got another $282 from him. The Federal Trade Commission says legitimate lenders never “guarantee” or say

Hamilton County’s emergency shelters for the homeless do not have the capacity to serve everyone in need during the coldest months of the winter when the demand for shelter is highest. While Cincinnati City Council voted to provide $30,000 in funding for the winter shelter, an additional $25,000 in funding is needed to add consistent seasonal shelter capacity from through February. With as many as 160 people sheltered on any given night at a cost of less than $1,000 per night, this winter shelter is a very cost effective way to protect our community’s most vulnerable homeless citizens. Strategies to End Homelessness and its partner agencies hope to have the Winter Shelter open every night through February, but currently lack the funding to open the facilities for that length of time. Donations to support the Winter Shelter can be made to Strategies to End Homelessness by visiting, or by calling 513-2632780.
