Grant will address blight By Kurt Backscheider

Some problem properties in East Price Hill are going to be cleaned up with federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program funding, but it’s not yet clear just how many properties will receive attention. The Cincinnati-Hamilton County NSP2 Consortium recently announced more than $24 million has been awarded to the Hamilton County area as a result of a successful grant proposal for the second round of Neighborhood Stabilization Program funding. The consortium includes Hamilton County, Cincinnati, the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority, the Local Initiatives Support Corp. and The Model Group. “Winning this competitive grant will allow us to clean up vacant, blighted and abandoned properties in some of our hardest hit communities,” said

“There is nothing concrete saying how the money is going to be allocated on the local level. There are a lot of details still to be worked out, but the consortium is working on it.” Ken Smith Executive director of Price Hill Will Hamilton County Commissioner David Pepper. “The work will allow us to create jobs, improve public safety and increase property values for neighbors.” Ken Smith, executive director of Price Hill Will, said the consortium was only awarded about 40 percent of the funding for which it applied. He said it has not been determined how the smaller amount of funding will impact the plans the consortium had for cleaning up problem properties in city and county neighborhoods, but work will still be done.

“There is nothing concrete saying how the money is going to be allocated on the local level,” Smith said. “There are a lot of details still to be worked out, but the consortium is working on it.” He said the grant money can be used to tear down problem properties, but the majority of the money will be used to rehabilitate run-down homes. Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory said the funding will have a big impact on city neighborhoods. “We will be taking properties that are dragging down our communities and turn them into new

housing opportunities that will strengthen our city,” Mallory said. Smith said the grant application originally identified 72 properties in East Price Hill that need to be cleaned up, but since the consortium was not awarded all the money it applied for it’s not clear right now whether all 72 properties will be addressed with the second round of funding. He said he is confident some of the funding will still be put to use in East Price Hill. “I have high hopes,” he said. “It’s a great opportunity, and from the very get-go when the consortium applied for the grant East Price Hill was one of the areas everyone wanted to focus on.” The other targeted neighborhoods in Cincinnati include Avondale, Evanston and Northside, and the targeted areas in Hamilton County are Golf Manor, Lincoln Heights and Mount Healthy.

City centers collecting toys for troops By Kurt Backscheider

Lisa Shafor-Frolicher and Dawn Bocklett are giving the children they serve an opportunity to help less fortunate children halfway across the globe. Frolicher, a former community center director at Dunham Recreation Center who now works at the Lincoln Community Center, and Bocklett, an inclusion specialist with the Cincinnati Recreation Commission, have organized a Beanies for Baghdad program for the recreation commission. “Growing up I always did service projects. It was something my parents instilled in me,” Frolicher said. “I think it’s important to show the kids what it means to give back and help others.” She said Beanies to Baghdad was started seven years ago by a woman who had a son serving in Iraq. The organization collects Beanie Babies, school supplies, stuffed animals and other toys, and sends them overseas to the troops, who then pass them out to children in war-torn countries. The program only sent Beanie Babies and toys to soldiers in Baghdad initially, but now it is also sending toys to soldiers who pass them out to brighten the lives of children in Afghanistan and Kosovo as well. “It’s not just in Baghdad anymore,” Frolicher said. She said she read about the organization in a magazine while waiting in her doctor’s office. She talked to Bocklett about the program and the two of them decided it would be an excellent service project for the recreation commission to be involved with. “We asked our supervisors and they said, ‘Yes, it sounds like a great thing to do,’” Frolicher said. The duo recently enlisted the

The drop boxes are located at every Cincinnati Recreation Commission community center, the commission’s main office downtown and at Brentwood Bowling Alley. Collection of Beanie Babies,


stuffed animals, Matchbox cars, school supplies, balls and other toys started Monday, Feb. 1. “I already have two bags filled with donations in my office,” Bocklett said. She said the collection drive will run as long as necessary. “I love being involved with my participants, and to be able to share in an experience that helps other children at the same time makes me enjoy it even more,”



she said. Visit for a list of community centers and addresses. Those who want to make monetary donations to help pay for postage and handling to ship the toys can send checks made payable to Cincinnati Recreation Foundation to Cincinnati Recreation Foundation, TR – Beanies for Baghdad, 805 Central Ave. Suite 800, Cincinnati, OH 45202.

Librarian shows her art at coffee shop By Kurt Backscheider

Colleen Wood said she finds joy in doing what she’s meant to do. For her, joy comes when she picks up a paint brush and guides it along an empty canvas or unfinished piece of wood. “I just feel like art is my thing that I have to contribute,” Wood said. “I’m not a cook, I don’t like to drive, I’m not good at sports. There are a million things I do terribly, but this I can do.” Wood, who is the children’s librarian at the Covedale Branch Library, is showing several of her paintings in an exhibit at the Front Porch Coffeehouse, 5245 Glenway Ave. The show, called “Colleen McAndrews Wood – Oil Paintings on Wood,” is open now through Friday, Feb. 12. A reception will take place from 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 5.

Wood said she’s been creating art for as long as she can remember, whether it’s been drawing or working with water colors. She said for about the past decade she’s focused on painting on pieces of wood. She said she loves the way oil paint soaks into the first couple of layers of a piece of wood, and she enjoys trying to incorporate

the wood’s grain into her design. “All the pieces in the show are oil paintings on wood,” she said. “I enjoy painting on oak when I can find it, and I’d love to find more reclaimed wood.” She said she finds inspiration in the flowers, architecture and stained glass she sees around her home

in Price Hill. A graduate of the Art Academy of Cincinnati, Wood said she appreciates the time period in which many of the homes in Price Hill, Covedale and Westwood were built – the early 20th century, a time when she said people took pride in their craftsmanship. She said her paintings complement the homes from that era. “I think it’s meaningful to have handmade work,” she said. The paintings on display at her show are a collection of works she’s painted during the past couple of years, she said. Wood has also shown her work at Holiday on the Hill this past Christmas season, the Passionate Arts Center in Covington and the Covedale Branch Library. “I love when I sit down to paint and the whole day is swallowed up,” she said. “And if other people like what I’ve painted it’s great. It’s just the icing on the cake.”

Scholarships available for career colleges State Sen. Bill Seitz (R – 8th District)) urged local high school seniors who are interested in attending one of Ohio’s career colleges to apply for tuition assistance through the Ohio Association of Career Colleges and Schools (OACCS) Legislative Scholarship Program. The OACCS, in cooperation with the Ohio General Assembly and 48 participating career colleges and schools across the state, is offering more than 275 scholarships worth nearly $1 million for students in the class of 2010 who are pursuing post-secondary training for careers in business, law, technology, medicine, criminal justice, education and a variety of other professions. The available scholarships may cover up to one-half of a student’s tuition or a specific dollar amount to be used toward the completion of a certificate, diploma or associate degree. The scholarship application deadline is April 1. Seitz said the career colleges participating in the scholarship program include Brown Mackie, the Art Institute of Ohio, Beckfield College, ITT Technical Institute, National College and Southwestern College, which all have campuses in Hamilton County. “While we often think of high-

er education in terms of the traditional four-year university, Ohio’s career colleges also have a tremendous impact on the professional success of Ohioans and the health of our economy,” Seitz said. “These schools offer students thorough, hands-on training in the career of their choice, passing along valuable job skills that can be immediately transferred to the workforce. Not to mention, these institutions can help build a strong, well-trained pool of workers that will help attract business investment to the state.” To be eligible for scholarship money, students do not have to demonstrate financial need, but they must have achieved a “C” grade average or better. In addition, applicants must be nominated by a current member of the Ohio General Assembly. All high school seniors from the 8th Ohio Senate District, who are interested in applying for the OACCS Scholarship, can send their nomination form to State Sen. Bill Seitz, Statehouse, Room 143, Columbus, Ohio 43215. More information can be found at For more information about the OACCS Legislative Scholarship Program, please visit

Burn victim, 12, now an ambassador Gannett News Service Two and a half years ago, Danny Happy clung to life with second- and third-degree burns over 95 percent of his body after a plane crashed into his family’s Sanford, Fla., home. On Jan. 16, the sixth-grader at St. Dominic School in Delhi Township was expected to be on the field at the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando, where he was one of two Shriners Hospitals for Children patient ambassadors for the 85th East-West Shrine Game featuring college football all-stars. “I’m very excited, very nervous. I feel very honored,” the 12year-old said last wek before leaving for Florida. He said he is most looking forward to the banquet – “where I get to meet the football players and

say a few words” – and the pregame coin toss, which he’ll be part of. For Danny, it was to be a homecoming – Sanford is about 20 miles northeast of Orlando – that few people would have imagined possible back on July 10, 2007. That’s when a twin-engine Cessna crashed into a residential neighborhood, killing five people, including Danny’s 4-year-old sister, Gabriela. Hours after the crash, Danny was airlifted from a Florida hospital to Shriners Hospital in Cincinnati, where he spent eight months. He continues to be seen at the hospital on an outpatient basis and will receive free care to age 18. Danny’s mother, Millie Dechat, decided to move to Cincinnati so

her son could continue treatments here. He arrived at St. Dominic in fourth grade. “His last name” – Happy – “fits his disposition,” said principal Bill Cavanaugh, noting that the boy smiles often. “It’s not fake or pretentious. He really is very happy.” At a news conference last week, Danny said the staff at Shriners has helped him through the tough times. At St. Dominic, Danny helped start Happy Tabs for Shriners Hospital. Initially, the goal was to collect 1 million aluminum can tabs. When that goal was reached, another million tabs were collected. The money raised helps provide a variety of items for patients at the hospital. As patient ambassadors for the

Three Delhi Township teens have been arrested in connection with a Jan. 26 burglary in the 600 block of Ivyhill Drive. Police Lt. Joe Macaluso said police were called at 4 p.m. when the resident returned home and noticed the items missing. The 15-, 16- and 17year-olds were all in custody by 9 p.m. The three are accused of entering the home through an unlocked door and stealing a TV, about 40 video games, jewelry and money. Some of the property has been recovered, Macaluso said, and the teens may have sold some of the items. Macaluso said the burglary still is being investigated and additional people may be charged.

The Dungeons of Delhi nearly turned into the Disaster of DelFair. D e l h i To w n s h i p police Sgt. Joe Middendorf was alerted to Maxson water leaking at the site of the haunted house he and the department’s Explorer Post have every fall. The site, the former Thriftway store in the shopping center, is equipped with an alarm system that detected that pipes had burst. What caused the building’s sprinkling system pipes to freeze, then thaw and burst, police said, was due to the theft of heating and air conditioning coils atop the shopping center. A Westwood man is charged with the theft and police are expecting others to be arrested, too. William Maxson III, 29, confessed to stealing the estimated $55,000 worth of coils while being interviewed by Cincinnati police for a Dec. 2 robbery on Boudinot Avenue.

Oak Hills battles inconsistency on court By Anthony Amorini

Inconsistency has kept Oak Hills boys basketball from climbing through city polls though the Highlanders have proven capable of keeping pace with Cincinnati’s best. With Oak Hills standing at 5-9 overall (through Jan. 28), several of the area’s best teams including Princeton, Lakota West and Colerain struggled against the Highlanders. Though Oak Hills ultimately fell to No. 3 Princeton (8-4) and No. 5 Colerain (11-1), the Highlander boys saddled No. 6 Lakota West (7-4) with a loss, 46-45, when the teams met Dec. 18. Oak Hills was ranked No. 13 according the Enquirer’s Division I Poll for week seven. “One of the most important things is for us to believe we can play with the best,” Oak Hills head coach Mike Price said. “I think the city is wide open this year as far as (which team) will go on the big tournament run.” After starting at 1-2, Oak Hills gained some much needed confidence with its win over Lakota West, Price said.

However, after evening its record at 2-2 the Highlanders struggled through a three-game losing streak before rebounding with a three-game win streak to land at 5-5 overall.

A two-point loss Jan. 15 to Princeton, 57-55, marked the start of another losing slide as Oak Hills fell to 5-8. The Highlanders dropped its fourth straight Jan. 26 losing at Middletown 44-36.

Other boys hoops happenings Here’s a quick glance at the season so far for the rest of the local boys’ basketball teams:

Elder (7-6, 2-3)

• Panthers were 4-2 during the first six games of its 2010 schedule • Seniors Alex Welch (11.7 points, 6.0 rebounds a game)

and Jordan Murphy (8,2 points, 6.7 rebounds a game) are statistical leaders

Taylor (4-7, 1-6)

• Senior John Greene (16 points, 7.0 rebounds a game) is Taylor’s statistical standout

Western Hills (4-9, 2-5)

• Junior guard JeMarcus Crawford (13.1 points a game), sophomore guard Lionel Hill (11.4 points, 2.46 assists a game) and junior Zechariah Mustafa (9.1 points, 9.3 rebounds a game) are statistical leaders

“We’ve been inconsistent from game to game, but also within the games,” Price said. The Highlanders had a 10-point lead against Princeton in the fourth quarter before letting the game slip away. During the loss to Colerain, 53-52, the Highlanders trailed 32-14 at halftime before rallying in the second half. “We are working on practicing at a faster pace to fix some of those problems,” Price said of his team’s inconsistency. “We are a few points away from being undefeated in the league.” Seniors Jeremy Wessels (13.3 points, 6.6 rebounds a game) and Kurt Kolish (12.5 points, 2.3 assists a game) have been key offensive contributors for Oak

Hills, Price said. “The reason they are scoring all those points is that they worked hardest in the offseason,” Price said of the senior duo. “Those guys put a lot of extra time in during the offseason.” Juniors Thomas Schneider (8.7 points, 6.2 rebounds a game), Cory Burgin (4.6 points, 3.8 assists) and Jared Vanderpohl (3.7 points a game) have also been key contributors, Price said. Oak Hills travels for a rematch against Lakota West at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 5, before launching into a two-game home stand with contests against Lakota East (Feb. 9) and Hamilton (Feb. 12). “Trying to get our guys to believe they can be right up there at the top is our biggest obstacle,” Price said. “The other obstacle is improving our practice effort until we consistently work at a high level.”

Elder stays hot, downs Moe on Senior Night By Tony Meale

This was a home-mat advantage Dick McCoy could get used to. The Elder High School wrestling coach watched his team beat Moeller 29-26 in front of a predominantly purple crowd on Senior Night Jan 28. It was Elder’s first win over Moeller since 2003. “The difference was our student body,” McCoy said. “It was like being at an XElder football game. In 28 years of coaching at Elder, I’ve never had that many students watch us wrestle. It was an electrifying atmosphere.” It was even more electrifying given that Elder at one point trailed 19-6. “(Moeller head coach Jeff Gaier and I) knew that

(Moeller was) stronger in the lighter weights, and we were stronger in the upper weights,” McCoy said. “We knew one team was going to get ahead and one team would have to come back.” The draw, which began with the 112-pound division, favored Moeller. “We told our guys we had to stay focused and not let them get momentum,” McCoy explained. “We said we needed to win at least three (of the 10) matches from 103 to 160.” The Panthers won four. In the final match of the night, Moeller junior Brendan Walsh needed to pin Elder freshman Greg Suer in the 103-pound division to give the Crusaders the win. But Suer, despite losing 5-2, avoided the pin, causing the Elder faithful to storm the mats.

Elder High School’s Gary Smith, right, wrestles Western Brown’s Tory Baver at the Glenn Sample Coaches Classic Dec. 19. Smith has been a key contributor for Elder this season. “It was chaotic,” McCoy said. “But for a high-school athlete – and even a highschool student – that’s a great memory.” McCoy knew his team could be special this season, and the Panthers haven’t missed a beat since winning the Glenn Sample Coaches Classic Dec. 19-20. They placed sixth out of 42 teams at the Brecksville Tournament Dec. 29-30; it was the school’s best-ever finish in this tournament. Elder had four placers – Ian Korb (first), Kevin Hyland (fourth), Sam Conners (sixth) and Nick Nusekabel (seventh) – and had four others come within one match of placing. “They thought they belonged,” McCoy said of his team. “Sometimes kids get overwhelmed and don’t go out and perform. They see the state champs and

state runner-ups and think, ‘Wow, I don’t belong here.’ But we felt we belonged.” The Panthers also competed in the 16th annual Ohio State Duals Tournament in Cleveland Jan. 10. Elder was one of eight teams to qualify for the tournament due to its strong performance in the district tournament last year. Wadsworth, which is ranked No. 1 in the state and 10th nationally, won the tournament, while St. Edward, which is ranked No. 2 in the state and fourth nationally, finished second. Elder placed third. “Wadsworth and Ed’s are in a class all their own,” McCoy said. “But we felt we were the third-best team there and we went out and proved it.” Twinsburg, Mason, Mentor, Marysville and Springboro finished third through

eighth, respectively. Elder also fared well in the Ohio All-Catholic Invitational Tournament Jan 1617, finishing fourth out of 36 teams. Among the placers were Nusekabel (first), Ryan Ruffing (second), Tyler Hardtke (third), Conners (fourth), Pat Nusekabel (fifth) and Ian Gillespie (sixth). McCoy said that his team believes in its ability to win matches and credited Daniels, Hyland and Gillespie for having the greatest year-to-year improvement. “Ian Gillespie has made himself a great wrestler,” McCoy said. “He’s not a gifted kid. He’s not the most athletic guy or the strongest guy, but he’s scrappy. He’s a tough west-side, blue-collar kid who gets after it. He doesn’t quit.” Elder, which faces Mason and Harrison Jan. 30, will travel to Delaware, Ohio, for the Delaware Hayes Tournament Feb. 6. McCoy said the team is simply focused on getting mat time before the postseason. The Panthers haven’t won the Greater Catholic League Tournament, which is slated for Feb. 13, since 1990. “When you get to the month of champions – and that’s what February is – you have to re-energize yourself to have a chance to win,” McCoy said. “I’m extremely proud of what these guys have done not just in results, but in the practice room. They get it.”

Gritty Bobcats take third at GGCL Tournament When you think of tough athletes, odds are you don’t think about bowlers. But maybe you should. The Mother of Mercy High School bowling team finished third at the GGCL Tournament, which was held at Brentwood Bowl Jan. 18. Given the Bobcats’ record – they were 9-1 (51) entering the tourney – a third-place finish might seem disappointing. Not so fast. Three Mercy regulars – senior Lindsay Doll, junior

Sarah Tebelman and sophomore Amy Feie – were injured but decided to bowl anyway. Doll, who is in the midst of physical therapy, and Tebelman sustained knee injuries in the weeks leading up to the tournament. “Sarah was hurt, but she did pretty well toward the end,” head coach Mike McDonald said. And then there’s Amy Feie. Five days before the tournament, Feie was in a car accident and was forced to wear a brace on her bowling arm.

But the day of the tournament, she removed the brace and gutted out a game – because, well, she’s a bowler. “She’s technically on JV, but I bring her up for important varsity matches,” McDonald said. “I can’t have her out.” Despite the heroics of Mercy’s ailing trio, the Bobcats (3,471) finished third to Mount Notre Dame (3,542) and Seton (3,631). Still, McDonald is confident that his team can rebound in time for the tournament. The Bobcats have been

Student lives one of his daydreams One of my greatest dreams since childhood has been to travel the world. I would often daydream about it whenever there was time to let my mind wander, but I never dreamed of having the chance to go certain places. During the month of September I was given the opportunity to take an unforgettable trip through the study abroad program at the University of Cincinnati. This trip would take me to my ultimate dream destination, Australia. However, there was one thing that stood in my way, a trip like this would cost a fortune, but by traveling through the University of Cincinnati I was able to get amazing deals on some of the most expensive parts of the trip like airfare and lodging, and UC still helped me with the cost by providing me with some extra money in the form of a scholarship. While in Australia I visited Sydney, Brisbane and Cairns. Since the trip was through my school I was able to receive three credit hours, equivalent to about one college course, by attending some classes while I was in Sydney and Brisbane. I was worried I would be spending too much time in the classroom while over there, because the main reason that I took part in the trip was to explore somewhere completely foreign to me. Fortunately, this was not a problem at all, and while I was over there I was able to do nearly

everything that I wanted. In Sydney I was able to enjoy some Australian city and night life, walk some of the greatest beaches Zachary Clark and wilderness on earth Community trails like Bondi Press guest Beach, and of columnist course visit the famous Sydney Opera House which was only a few minute’s walk from the hotel that I was occupying. In Brisbane the group and I were able to pet some kangaroos and hold a koala named Buckley at Lone Pine, the largest koala sanctuary in the world. However, my favorite part of the trip hands down was the time that I spent in Cairns. This is the part of Australia that everyone wants to visit, the location of the Great Barrier Reef. In Cairns, I visited the Daintree Rainforest, one of the few protected world heritage sites in the world, relaxed on some breath taking beaches, and I was even blessed with seeing a 16-foot salt water crocodile in the wild, which can only be found in the northeast part of Australia. However, the pinnacle of my trip was scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef. The professor that accompanied me on the trip made sure that I became a certified diver

This was easy enough, because I was able to become certified through the University of Cincinnati’s Communiversity. In Cairns, I was able to take part in three dives on two different parts of the reef. During the dives I saw countless amazing creatures including fish of every color imaginable, squid, giant clams that were twice the size of me and a famous Maori wrasse named Wally that loved people. Put all of this together, and you have the recipe for the trip of a lifetime. It all would have never been possible without a lot of help from UC’s study abroad program.

Concussions need serious attention When your child suffers head trauma, it is frightening, but luckily not always serious. Most head injuries in childhood cause only external damage, such as bruising and laceration. Rarely a child will suffer a serious injury such as a brain bleed; these can be seen on CT scans, and are accompanied by severe symptoms. Concussions are brain injuries that cannot be seen on a scan, and don’t always cause immediate symptoms, but can still result in long term damage. So how do you know when to be concerned? Concussions are a temporary loss of brain function which can range in severity, but even mild concussions, if recurring, can lead to permanent brain injury and sometimes death. Concerning

symptoms include loss of consciousness, amnesia, nausea and vomiting, extreme headache, trouble concentrating, poor coordination or balance, slurred speech, confusion, and sleepiness. If your child exhibits these symptoms after a head injury, seek medical attention immediately. A child with no obvious symptoms should still be monitored closely for several days after the injury. If the child begins to show any signs of headache, dizziness, vision changes, personality changes, poor concentration or forgetfulness, they should be examined by the doctor and benched until given clearance to return to sports. It is critical to follow a doctor’s advice about return to play. The brain needs time to heal after a concussion, and until it has done

so, it is especially vulnerable to another injury. There have been numerous cases documented of sudden death when an athlete has returned to play too soon and suffered a second brain injury. This phenomenon is known as Second Impact Syndrome. Because of this risk, the athlete should not be allowed to play until he or he is completely free of symptoms both at rest and during exertion. An athlete who has too many concussions in too short a time may need to be benched for the season. Kids that are more at risk for concussion include those that play high impact sports. It is especially important that these athletes wear proper equipment including helmets, and they should follow the coach’s rules for

safety, proper technical form, and good sportsmanship. When they suffer a head injury, they need to be honest about their symptoms and not feel that it is a “badge of honor” to play injured. The long term risk of recurring concussions has become the focus of recent research. The NFL has found that a disproportionate number of their former athletes have suffered brain damage leading to early dementia and other neurological problems. As result of this research, the NFL recently publicized new return-to-play rules which mandate that players be completely asymptomatic and pass a series of neurologic tests before they return to action. They also encourage a new culture in the sport which no longer glorifies players who play

Big events highlight best and worst of sports Are sports over-emphasized in our culture? Many a person today would offer a resounding “yes!” Extravagant salaries, greed, capricious owners, intended concussions or other injuries, arrogant athletes who see themselves as gods – so many factors suggest a “yes.” Professional sports seems too much about money, self-interest, and celebrityhood for the participants – not local community representation, loyalty, inspiration of youth and love of the game. The good aspects of sports now usually seem to happen at the high school and college level. However, these observations are not intended as a blanket condemnation of sports. Athletics has great positive potential. A knife can be used for good or bad; by a thief to rob or by a surgeon to heal. Similarly, sports can accomplish much good, or bad. The deciding factor is always us.

On the negative side: sport zealots can foster undue competition and doanything-to-win attitude. “When I played pro footFather Lou ball, I never set Guntzelman out to hurt anyPerspectives one deliberately – unless it was, you know, important, like a league game or something,” said Dick Butkus. Joking or not, such an unhealthy attitude in order to win, cheating, drugs to enhance performance, etc., does no favor for sports, participants or fans. The thrill of winning is uplifting and celebrated. Winning at any cost is actually a personal defeat. In a much bigger picture of life, we often learn more from dealing with our honest defeats.

Misplaced social attitudes can lead some athletes to believe their physical prowess makes them superior to fellow humans with talents in other areas of life such as art, music or other intellectual endeavors. Sports, for some, is almost a religion. Several sociologists have pointed out the powerful religious components in many public sports spectacles: special robes, music, and devotees costumes; adherence to prescribed rituals and chants; the vestal virgins of old cheering game participants and fans (fanatics); myopic coaches of young athletes setting practice sessions on Sunday mornings making adolescent athletes necessarily choose between practice sessions (more important) and church worship (less important); adoration bestowed on players convincing them and of their semidivine status, etc. On the positive side: great

benefits come when sports are engaged in ethically and healthfully. The late Pope John Paul II was an athlete in his youth. In later reflections on the topic he spoke of the benefits of sports: they contribute to the integral development of the human person; can be a training ground for life itself, demanding self-discipline, loyalty, courage, coping with failure and adversity, fostering humility, justice, learning to work with others and facing one’s fears and anxieties, etc. Late sportswriter Haywood Hale Broun believed that sports didn’t build character as much as they “revealed it” in a person. For us fans and our society, sports can serve as entertainment, relaxation, help form community attitudes and involvement, and take our minds off the heavy routine of work. Psychologically, sports can

serve healthfully as the ritualized expression and catharsis of aggression. This writer has participated in various sports throughout life and have found them a wonderful benefit of life in this world. Our present task to honor sports and pass them on to our young is to keep them healthy for body and soul, not a detriment. John Carmody writes: “Just as we can thank God for the light of our eyes and the air we breath … so we can thank God for the exercise that helps us see the world more sharply and breath the air more deeply. The river that runs by me in the middle of my workout is better focused than the river of thoughts I contemplate on a turnstool over multiple drinks.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Paying with credit card allows for easier refunds What should you do if you sign up for something, cancel within three days as permitted, but still don’t get your money back? Unless you know your rights you may fall victim to those who keep your money even though they are not entitled to do so. Cleves resident Gary Graff and his wife, Diane, said this is what has happened to them. Back in November they answered an ad for a vacation club and went to a local hotel to hear the sales pitch. Gary said they already belong to two such clubs. “We went there and right away we told them of the ones we have, and I said it

sounds a l i k e . Things went on a little bit more and, of course, they keep trying to Howard Ain sell you,” Hey Howard! he said. T h e Graffs signed up and paid nearly $3,000 for the membership with their credit card. “When we got home we started looking back at our programs we’ve used,” said Gary Graff. “We found out really they’ve got just about everything this has got, so why do we really want this?” The contract they signed

gives them three days in which to cancel, so they did both by e-mail and by fax. “We were told we’d get our refund in 15 working days, business days. But it didn’t happen,” Graff said. He repeatedly contacted the company by phone and e-mail. “Every day it was another excuse,” he said. “ ‘You’ll be getting it next week; you’ll be getting it next week.’ ” In an e-mail to the Graffs, the company wrote, “Thank you for your patience. Please rest assured your refund will be sent next week, no later.” But that e-mail was dated Dec. 30. Graff said he doesn’t know whether the

company will ever return his money adding, “I doubt it, but at least I’d like to have it exposed.” The key thing to remember is you don’t have to worry about the company returning your money. Just pay with a credit card and you can dispute the charge with your credit card company and get the money back that way. Under federal law, you can dispute a charge up to 60 days after getting your credit card statement. The Graffs have now

filed a dispute, both over the phone and in writing, so they can get the money back from their credit card company since the vacation club failed to do so. Ohio law says a company must return your money within 10 business days after receiving your cancellation notice. The Graffs have now filed a complaint with the state attorney general’s office. Bottom line, always pay with a credit card – not a debit card or check – because that’s the only way you can

dispute such a payment. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12. Write to him at 12 WKRC-TV, 1906 Highland Ave., Cincinnati 45219.

The Colts or the Saints – who’s your favorite for the Super Bowl? I’m for the Colts, since Indy is closer than New Orleans. How about that for a scientific, educated opinion? My editor Lisa said she’s rooting for the Saints since Milford High School graduate Zach Strief is on the team.

From The Heart...

“Whoever in trouble and sorrow needs your help, give it to him. Whoever in anxiety or fear needs your friendship, give it to him. It isn’t important whether you approve of his conduct. It isn’t important what his creed or nationality may be.“ - E. N. West We all know what it means to have someone by our side and say, “I understand.” To understand is to have compassion. It is not to condemn, but to reach out in concern and love. Compassion is a very special manifestation of love; it is a form of love that springs from the deepest recesses of the heart. People who can feel compassion are fortunate because it gives them a sense of being needed and useful in a world which hopefully they can change for the better... Wouldn’t today be a good day for all of us to be more compassionate?... Marilyn Holt
