Throwing snow

Arlene Huff, of Price Hill, braves the snow storm Thursday, Jan. 20, dodging snowflakes as she shovels her driveway. Huff said she was out clearing snow three different times before 1 p.m. She said she would rather tackle it a little bit at a time than have to plow through several heavy inches of snow.

Quintet makes perfect flirts By Heidi Fallon

They’ve been pals for 60 years and celebrate those friendships once a month over breakfast. Calling themselves the Romeo’s for retired old men eating out, the five friends have been gathering around a table at the Glenway Avenue Bob Evans the second Tuesday of the month for at least 12 years. “I told them I came up with the name, but I actually stole it from another group I heard about,” said George Frank. Frank is the oldest of the group at 80. He said all five friends grew up in Delhi Township and all graduated from Western Hills High School. “Oak Hills didn’t have a high school back then,” said Frank, who now lives in Miami Heights. Rounding out the breakfast bunch are Dick Frey, 77, Bridgetown; Bob Tenner, 78, Delhi Township; Marvin White, 78, Miami Heights; and Dick Becknell, Sayler Park. “We’ve always stayed in touch, even after we graduated, some of us went into the service, got married and had families,” Frey said. While they stay away from religion and politics, the men said most any other topic is open for discussion. “We talk sports and things we did back in our party days,” Frey said, with a sly smile. That triggered names like The Topper Club and Five Points Tav-

That prompted Tenner to remind his friends of sneaking into the drive-in in the trunk of his pale blue Dodge coupe. That reminded White about his first car, a 1936 Hudson. “Back then, if you saw one of us, you probably saw us all,”

Frank said. “We were always together. “I think we’re lucky to have stayed friends all these years and be able to come here once a month just to see one another.” Candy Webber, a Price Hill resident and a Bob Evan’s waitresses, said she loves waiting on the Romeo’s. “They make me laugh,” she

said, while topping off their coffee cups. “I hope I make them laugh, too. “They’re just really great guys and,” she added with a smile, “wonderful tippers.” That elicited a hearty laugh from the Romeo’s and the collective consensus that it’s good to be friends and even better to be old friends.

Students create memories for orphans By Kurt Backscheider

Art students at Oak Hills High School put their talents to work to create lasting keepsakes for five children who live in an orphanage in Thailand. Students in the digital and alternative photography classes taught by Oak Hills art teacher Kristen Dierdorf recently completed work for the Memory Project, a nationwide initiative in which art students create original portraits for orphaned children around the world. Dierdorf said children who have been abandoned, orphaned, abused or neglected often have few personal keepsakes, and the purpose of the project is to provide the children with a special memory of their youth, to honor their heritage and identity and to help them build a positive self-image. She said when she signed up to participate in the program her students were able to choose which country and orphanage they wanted to help – her students chose to make portraits for five children who lost their parents in a tsunami. “I’ve wanted to do this project for three or four years,” Dierdorf said. “I have a passion for helping people in need.” “The opportunity to participate finally presented itself, and it’s just amazing the support this has received from the staff and students at Oak Hills,” she said. Dierdorf and her students received photographs of the five children who are awaiting portraits, and then for about one month they worked on laptop computers using Photoshop software to create digital, collage portraits. She said the portraits are displayed in a hallway at the high school and students and teachers are voting in an online survey to determine which 15 portraits, three for each child, will be delivered to the Memory Project. Oak Hills senior Gabby Abbatiello took the project one step further and painted a portrait


Oak Hills High School senior Gabby Abbatiello, of Green Township, uses software on a laptop computer to manipulate a digital image of an orphan from Thailand. Students in the digital photography classes at Oak Hills created portraits of five orphans from Thailand for the Memory Project. of one of the children during winter break. Her painting is being sent to the orphanage along with the 15 digital portraits. “I thought this project was really inspirational,” Abbatiello said. “I thought it was so sweet that I could make a little kid happy. I felt bad for these kids because they don’t have parents.” She said she spent about 20 hours perfecting the painting, and she used bright colors to make it vibrant and joyful. She said she was drawn to the cute smile and kind eyes of the child she painted, and she wanted to create a piece to help the young girl forget about her troubles for a while. “It feels really good to know I did some-

thing positive for somebody so young,” Abbatiello said. “I’m really proud I did this project and that she gets to see it. She’ll be able to keep it forever.” Dierdorf said for additional inspiration her students spoke with the Memory Project’s founder, Ben Schumaker, via Skype to learn why he started the initiative. “It really sparked another piece of motivation for the kids to finish the project strong,” Dierdorf said. She said it was neat to see her students apply skills they learned in the classroom while opening their hearts, promoting the value of sharing kindness and connecting with people on a global level.

Depth has Mercy bowling rolling

By Tony Meale

Sorry, Michael, but it’s not the shoes. It might, however, be the ball. Just take Mother of Mercy High School junior bowler Amy Feie. “She was our best bowler the first month of the season, and then she (struggled),” Bobcats head coach Mike McDonald said. “We figured out her ball was worn out, and she got a new one. The last few weeks, she’s gotten right back to where she was. So it wasn’t her (that was struggling). It was the ball.” Feie, who is second in the Girls’ Greater Catholic League-Scarlet with a 190.6 average, helped Mercy to an 8-0 (7-0) start. “She’s been a very good bowler for three years,” McDonald said, “but she’s been the surprise of the season.” Feie headlines a loaded Mercy squad; the Bobcats boast two of the top three bowlers in the Scarlet division, three of the top six, five of the top nine and six of the top 12. They were the favorites to win the GGCL

Tournament Jan. 17, but the Bobcats, which scored a 3422, fell by just six pins to McAuley (3428), a team they defeated 2393-2150 in the season-opener Nov. 30. Seton (3100), Ursuline (2963), Mount Notre Dame (2896) and St. Ursula (2613) finished third through sixth, respectively. McDonald was nevertheless encouraged by Mercy’s second-place finish – or better yet, encouraged by the close-match experience his squad gained. Last year, the Bobcats blitzed through the regular season largely unchallenged and advanced to the state tournament only to become, as McDonald put it, “star-struck.” Mercy finished outside the top 10. “Blowouts are nice, but you have to have the experience of being in tough matches,” he said. “This year we’ve had some of that, which should bode well for the tournament.” Feie led the Bobcats at the GGCL Tournament with a game-high 214 and a series-high 591. Seniors Katie Minning (189.9) and Kelsey Schaible (181.2) are third and sixth in the league,

Delhi-Price Hill Press


The Mother of Mercy bowling team rolled a schoolrecord 2,846 against Fairfield at Fairfield Lanes Jan. 19. The Bobcats won 2,846 to 2,544 to improve to 14-1. Leading Mercy were Katie Minning, who bowled a 460 for the series, Sarah Tebelman (437), Amy Feie (421), Kelsey Schaible (399) and Monica Murphy (364). Amber Volmer, Sarah Schwab and Sarah Corso participated in the baker games. The previous school record was 2,730, which was set against Seton at Western Bowl in 2010. Jan. 20. They face Northwest and Oak Hills – each of which is ranked in the top five – before the end of the regular season. No match, though, is as big as the one slated for Jan. 27 at Colerain Bowl – a rematch against McAuley that will likely determine the GGCL-Scarlet champion. The Mohawks are 12-3 (10-1), a half-game behind Mercy in the league standings. “That’s going to be a great, great atmosphere with people screaming at the top of their lungs,” McDonald said. “Win or lose, it’ll be fun – and I really mean that.”

A little blow by

Athlete of the Week

Zach Horstman, a senior, is the bowling Athlete of the Week. He has bowled most of his life. His grandfather owned a bowling alley in Cheviot. For the past four years he has been under the guidance of coach Terry Saccone. Horstman has an average of 211 for his team right now and is hoping it goes up for the state tournament. He is planning on going to Miami University to study zoology and plans to continue bowling.

BRIEFLY The week at Oak Hills

Oak Hills’ topscorer was Danni Scholl with nine points. • In girls swimming, Oak Hills placed 33rd with a score of 7 in the Southwest Ohio Classic, Jan. 15. • In boys bowling, Northwest placed first with a score of 2,909 against Oak Hills’ 2,866 and Elder’s 2,748, Jan. 19. Oak Hills’ Zach Horstman bowled a 468, Jaron Hesse bowled 416 and Kyle Helmes bowled 406. Elder’s Ben Brauch bowled a 474, Aaron Vest bowled a 441, Patrick Busche bowled 430 and Joe Giovanetti bowled 427. • In girls bowling, Oak Hills placed first with a score of 2,564 against Northwest’s 2,403 and Seton’s 2,199, Jan. 19. Oak Hills’ Kristee Hartung bowled a 407. Seton’s Piller bowled a 339.

The week at Western Hills Oak Hills senior guard Mackenzie Laumann stepped in to take a charge against Mercy junior guard Corrine Bachman. Laumann finished with seven points, while Bachman had three. Mercy sophomore forward Rebecca Tumlin left, and Oak Hills senior Sydney Leits battle for a board in the first half. Leits had six points, while Tumlin chipped in 10 off the bench. Mercy sophomore Kelley Wiegman pulls up for a jumper in transition. Wiegman shot 14-of-16 from the foul line.

She’s trying to gut it out and get through it because she’s a senior. If she does, I’ll have three of the top bowlers in the city with her, Katie and Amy.” Senior Sarah Tebelman (179.5), meanwhile, is eighth, while junior Amber Volmer (179.1) is ninth. Senior Monica Murphy (171.6) is 12th. “At Mercy, we’ve always done it with numbers,” McDonald said. “We’ve rarely had the top bowler, but we win with depth. Right now I have 11 girls on JV. Most teams don’t even have a JV team. But we play everybody all the time. I tell the girls to start out as freshmen with an average in the 120s and pick up 20 pins a year, and then you’ll be as good as the seniors when you get to be one. We’re looking good for the next couple seasons.” The Bobcats, the topranked team in the city, are 14-1 (11-1) entering play

Jan. 12’s question: What is your reaction to Marvin Lewis returning as the Bengals head coach? “What was my reaction to Marvin Lewis returning as the Bengals head coach? Let’s just say I was stunned. It is something like naming Napoleon the winner at Waterloo.” B.B. “I was really disappointed that Marvin Lewis didn’t see the wisdom in leaving himself after the terrible seasons he and the team have produced for the fans. “I was further disappointed that Mike Brown would want him back. This is something very wrong with the Cincinnati Bengals, we just don’t want to recognize it publicly.” E.E.C.

Last week’s question: Do you think political rhetoric caused the deadly shootings in Tucson, Ariz.? Why or why not? “No. The guy’s a nut job.”


“Good heavens no. The guy is disturbed and probably was listening to voices in his own head. He knew what he was doing, he should not use an act of insanity as defense, and he should be executed. I’m hoping that his defense attorney doesn’t play spin doctor and say that it was due to rhetoric.” C.A.S. “The appalling state of mental health care in this country is to blame, not political rhetoric.” D.H. “I don’t know that it caused it per se. However, a mentally unstable individual doesn’t need much to tip them over and contribute to such heinous acts. So what was learned? Apparently not much by some since (Sarah) Palin chose to speak at a gun/hunting show after such a tragic happening.” B.N. “It absolutely did not! And, for all the libs, mainstream media and left-leaning politicos that are indicating it was; the shooter was more in touch with liberal politics than any. He was known to hate G.W. Bush and conservative politics. Let’s also not forget that a Republican judge was a victim there too.” J.R.

About Ch@troom This week’s question: What grade would you give President Barack Obama for his first two years in office? Do you plan to vote for him in 2012? Every week The Community Press asks readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answer to with Chatroom in the subject line. “No. It was proven that the shooter was a loner and did not watch much TV or listen to the radio.” L.S. “No. Americans do not act out their political views this way unless they have mental problems. If people reacted violently to political rhetoric why were there no shootings during the healthcare debate? People who are trying to score political points or gain favor with people who are easily persuaded always look for a scapegoat. There is only one person to blame for this tragedy. “Also, does anyone believe that this would be such a longlasting story if it were not for one of the victims being a congresswoman? All we can do is pray for the victims and their families.” B.L. “Most people realize politicians’ rhetoric is supposed to send a message of strength and confidence; letting voters know they will work hard for their community/country. Too many people are intolerant of ideas and thoughts different than their own. “The rhetoric itself did not cause the deadly shootings in Tucson, Az.; a young man’s distorted thoughts of hate and intolerance was acted out and sadly lives were lost, people hurt, lives changed forever by a terrible act of violence. How do we fix that? Perhaps politicians of all political parties and pundits should consider how volatile words and pictures could be interpreted by those lost souls who take everything literally. “ K.K. “No! If it was political, why were onlookers shot?” N.P.



LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Cut spending now

Recently the Delhi Press published an article titled, “Delhi finalizes 2011 budget.” In this article, our elected officials and administrator were congratulating themselves on a completed budget that is higher than 2010’s with all departments except Public Works spending more. We must do better. The township spends more money ($1.93 million) than it receives in revenue ($1.89 million). There are several problems with that. Beginning in 2011, the township revenue from the state will be cut significantly since Ohio is facing an $8 billion deficit. Gov. Kasich has said he will phase out the estate (inheritance) tax, the same tax from which Delhi is budgeting $750,000 of its annual revenue. The township is paying for things with money that will not exist in the future. Raising taxes cannot be the solution to our budget mess. Instead of praising “modest percentage increases,” we need to think differently and cut spending to avoid a township budget disaster with higher taxes in 2012. Jeff Eichhorn Delhi Township

Stayed flat?

I read with great interest and laughter your article titled “Not in line” in last week’s edition of the press. In the article you state some facts with percentages and budget numbers from the 2010 budgets. It is nice to see that you are informed. As such I’m sure you are aware that the public safety departments through conservative spending have been able to delay the need to go back to us voters for more money. I’m sure you know that their 2010 budgets were almost flat from 2009 even with considerable raises in BWC, health, and insurance costs. Yet for some reason you, just like CBS

ages by the Lockland School District. Last June, when the state of Ohio passed similar school nutrition legislat i o n , Stacy Wegley WeTHRIVE! had Community the tools in place guide local Press guest to school districts columnist through the process. By August, Cincinnati Public Schools adopted new nutrition guidelines for the district’s 57 schools. Norwood City Schools stopped selling soda and junk food in the high school’s “Snack Shack” during lunchtime and, like other local districts, is working with WeTHRIVE! to set improved nutrition standards.

I am a member of a group that is trying to get Cincinnati City Council to recognize Covedale as an official neighborhood within the city. At this time the city doesn’t recognize Covedale and says it is part of West Price Hill. Two council members told us it would be difficult to get support from any of the five council members that were endorsed by Powr Pac. Powr Pac stands for Partnership of Westside Residents. They endorse candidates for city council and mayor and they send out thousands of mailers to West Side residents. Powr Pac consists of just a few people but the dominant person is Pete Witte, a former president of the Price Hill Civic Club. Of course, Price Hill Civic has been working to stop our effort. We decided to look into where Powr Pac gets the money for its mailer, which is very costly. This information is public record and is available from the board of elections. We expected to find a large number of small contributors from the West Side. We were surprised to discover that several of the candidates Powr Pac endorsed made substantial contributions to

Powr Pac. This gives the appearance that candidates pay for Powr Pac’s endorsement. Is this accepted practice? Do other groups Steve Bertke that endorse Community candidates take in Press guest money exchange for columnist their endorsement? I thought most Pacs were set up to give money to candidates, not the other way around. At best, this is a major conflict of interest. Some contributors live out of town, in places like Chicago and Dayton. In the 2009 election cycle, there were no contributors from the West Side of the city, the area Powr Pac is supposed to represent. Of course, council candidates value Powr Pac’s endorsement. All of this gives Pete Witte a lot of influence in city affairs. Pete Witte was an unsuccessful candidate for city council in 2003. Powr Pac was started in 2005. In an article about the Covedale issue, the

eral government’s 10-year plan to improve the nation’s health – takes a different approach from the past. The plan calls on communities, not just individuals, to play a role in creating environments that make the healthy choice the easy choice. Hamilton County is ahead of the game with the WeTHRIVE! program providing communities the tools and resources to confront and overcome barriers to wellness. Last spring, residents broke ground on nine community gardens in Lincoln Heights, Woodlawn and Lockland to help bring healthier food to their neighborhoods. More gardens are set to open throughout the county next spring. WeTHRIVE! continues to help build a healthier Hamilton County by supporting policy, systems and environmental changes that fight obesity. Things like creating “shared use” agreements to open

school and church gyms and playgrounds to residents for physical activity and supporting Safe Routes to School (SRTS), which uses federal funds to promote walking and biking to school. Thanks to WeTHRIVE!, Hamilton County schools have a head start on making sure that all students have access to healthy food and beverage choices. Our communities are ahead of the game in creating environments where the healthy choice is the easy choice. While much has been done, we still have work to do. Get involved – for yourself, your school or your community. Visit to join the WeTHRIVE! movement today. Stacy Wegley is director of health promotion and education for Hamilton County Public Health.

WeTHRIVE! puts kids, communities ahead of game With the recent passage of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act and release of the nation’s Healthy People 2020 goals, schools and communities around the country are asking the question, “What do we have to do?” Thanks to the collaborative community program WeTHRIVE!, Hamilton County can proudly proclaim, “Look what we’ve already begun!” The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act calls for stronger school nutrition standards, encourages the use of local foods and promotes school gardens. WeTHRIVE! began work on these issues in 2008, bringing parents, teachers and community members together to create schools where the healthy choice is the easy choice.

Enquirer reporter said that Pete Witte is sometimes referred to as the 10th council member. In 1948, the Cincinnati Planning Department produced a master plan for the city. This document was approved by city council. It clearly shows Covedale as a neighborhood within the city. In addition, when Covedale was annexed in 1930, the mayor and city manager publicly referred to our neighborhood as Covedale, implying that Covedale would be recognized after annexation. It’s obvious that Covedale was recognized by the city in the past. At some point the city took away our neighborhood status and said we were part of West Price Hill. Nobody seems to know when or why this happened and what process was used to take away our neighborhood status. When we started this effort we were naïve enough to think that this debate would be about history, facts and the will of the people. Steve Bertke is a retired engineer and has lived in Covedale for 23 years.

It’s understandable to doubt God’s love in our hard times would: not have their child inocu l a t e d because it b r i n g s t e a r s ; enrolled in school Father Lou because of Guntzelman homesickPerspectives n e s s ; e x p e c t chores at home in order to earn money for video games. Good parents may seem harsh at times to their children. Their genuine love for their child’s growth and well-being is only appreciated later on. God’s love is expressed in many ways. It can be playful, sacrificial, formative, giving, passionate, as well as demanding. Love is not meant only for stroking egos but for forming them. We accept the medicine because we trust in the love of the one who administers it. Why is it, then, when we look for signs of God’s love we expect them to always make us more comfortable? Sometimes they do. At other times they call forth more from us. They chip off pieces of our ego. An insightful prayer says: “I asked God to take away my sickness and give me health, but he permitted

my illness to continue longer so I could learn compassion; I prayed for a better paying job, and instead he gave me an appreciation for the one I have now; I prayed to be loved more intensely, and he taught me how to love others more.” It takes a long time and a lot of spiritual maturity to learn how to trust in a love that doesn’t always give us what we want. So human-like, St. Teresa of Avila chided God about this once: “No wonder you have such few friends, treating them the way you do.” There are always doubts and ambiguity about what God allows in our lives. “Why this? Why that?” we ask. Every adverse thing that happens we consider a disaster, a permitted evil, and a sign of an unloving God. Professor Belden Lane of St. Louis University, sees it differently. In his book, “The Solace of Fierce Landscapes,” he states his approach to the perceived evils in his life: “I wouldn’t be satisfied with answers to the problem of evil if I had them. “What I desire most of all is the assurance of God’s love… that won’t let go. In struggling with God, none of us minds losing so long as we know ourselves to be

loved.” Like a child lacking insight, we all struggle with God occasionally about what’s good for us and what’s not. We accuse God of being uncaring when he

allows us to be roughed up by life at times. We think we know what’s best for us. Sometimes we do. But only perfect love knows perfectly.



Does he or doesn’t he? Does God really love us? Love me? We’re told in the scriptures that he does. And sometimes we think so, and sometimes we wonder. Our problem is we’re confused about all the aspects of real love and how they’re expressed. In our understanding of love, it’s not a “many splendored thing,” but rather specific. It’s always romantic, sensual, accompanied by music, roses, and dinners on the town. Hearing that God loves us leads us to expect we’ll soon be living on Easy Street. Televangelists imply that God will heal all sicknesses, give us twice as much money as we donate to them, and take all the problems out of our lives. Many a person’s spiritual life is made worse by this kind of thinking – that God’s love always goes easy on us. Actually his grace wants to gradually transform us. A sculptor, operating on our premise, could never strike the blows which bring out a beautiful statue from a cold block of marble. The marble could complain the sculptor is being too uncaring and harsh – not knowing the final figure he has in mind. Parents, believing only in love’s comfortableness

Dairy-free dinner rolls

These rolls are dairyfree, cholesterol-free and low-fat. Don’t be squeamish about the ingredients here.

Repeat layers twice, topping with remaining noodle and sauce. Bake, covered, 25 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with rest of Mozzarella. Bake about 10 minutes more. Let sit 10 minutes before cutting.
