The word library immediately brings to mind a building full of shelves of books and smart, bookish people to help you find the one you want. Even the name contains the Latin word for book. But the library has expanded like a Narnian wardrobe in recent years. While there is still a building filled with books, the universe of services and information for which it serves as a gateway is expanding exponentially and at a dizzying speed. Greg Edwards, deputy director of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County says that’s not likely to change. His library system, the fifth busiest in the country, according to the 2015 Public Library Data Service statistical report, just handed out its 600,000th library card in August and circulated more than 18 million items through its 41 branches. Lots of those items were books, and he says books will always be at the heart of library services. But his libraries are offering a lot more these days to meet the needs of those 600,000plus card holders. Libraries can help patrons learn to download e-books and other electronic items and use e-readers. In addition to books, magazines and newspapers can be checked out in electronic form. “More and more in this particular area people are using the databases and downloading ebooks and audio services,” Kathy Taylor, branch manager of the Green Township Branch Library, said. Looking for a job? Your local library can help. Research for a school paper? Your local library

can help. Need a computer to use for a couple hours? Try your local library. Homework too tough? Many branches have homework help. Delight your inner crafter? Entertain your toddler? Feed hungry kids over the summer? Check out your local library. Cheviot resident Rebecca Nichting said she visits the Green Township branch on Bridgetown Road about four days each week. She said she primarily uses the library’s Internet access to conduct genealogical research or to help her daughter with her research papers. “Computers have replaced

encyclopedias and now you’re able to research much deeper,” she said. She’s noticed the Green Township branch offers many more children’s programs than it used to, and said she’s also seen the library expand its research materials. “It’s come a long way since I grew up with the library,” Nichting said. In addition to checking out books, Cheviot resident John Healy said he visits the Green Township branch three or four days each week to also surf the web and borrow movies and music CDs. “When I first started coming

to the library they didn’t have computers or online materials,” he said. “Now they have more materials and better access to the materials. I think we’re lucky to have a system like this in Hamilton County. This is pretty awesome.” Delhi Township resident John Grever said he’s used libraries in Pittsburgh, Louisville and Sarasota, Fla., but, in his view, the library system in Hamilton County stands out above the rest. “It’s really a great service,” he said. “I think it’s an outstanding library.” He visits the Delhi Township Branch Library on Foley Road

three or four times a week, he said. He checks out books, movies and music, and said he also uses the library’s computers for investment services and financial planning research. Grever said he reads four to five books each week and especially appreciates the library’s online service, which allows him to order books and have them delivered to the Delhi branch. “The staff will help you if you have trouble and they’ll call you when your books are in,” he said. Emily Salyers of Delhi Township said she’s at the Delhi branch at least twice a week to do research, get books and borrow movies. “The staff is so friendly and See LIBRARY, Page 2A

Delhi offering free disaster preparedness training Kurt Backscheider

DELHI TWP. – Natural disasters are not planned. They can strike quickly, without warning and can wreak havoc on a community, leaving residents without basic services for days or even weeks. Having a basic preparedness plan in place for you and your family and stocking essential supplies is important. In an ongoing effort to ensure the safety of residents, the Delhi Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is partnering with the Delhi Township Fire Department to provide free emergency preparedness training. Community members are encouraged to attend the event, set for 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday,

Feb. 15, at the township’s fire headquarters, 697 Neeb Road. “We want to try to get more people ready to deal with disasters because they are inevitable. They are going to occur,” said township resident Matthew Maley, a registered emergency trainer with the Delhi CERT group. “The people who take this training will be prepared to handle multiple issues that occur during a disaster.” He said the training will be presented in two hour-long segments. The first hour is focused on the essentials of preparedness and the second hour covers additional preparedness information and information specific to CERT training. Those attending may stay for the entire program or leave af-

ter the first hour. Maley said the first segment addresses how, why and when to be prepared; fire safety and utility safety; emergency first aid response, including bleeding, breathing and shock; and advanced first aid such as triage, burns, hypothermia, frostbite and fractures. The second hour, geared toward CERT members, will cover search and rescue, incident command, psychological aspects involved in disaster events and terrorism, he said. “I think people will find when they’re finished with the training they’ll have a comprehensive picture of how you prepare and why you prepare,” he said. Delhi Township Fire Chief Douglas Campbell said history has shown the township is not

immune to natural disasters. Recent examples include an ice storm in 2007 and the windstorm from Hurricane Ike in 2008. Many residents were left without power for three or four days following the hurricane winds, he said. “There were a lot of people who didn’t know what to do in those situations,” he said. Firefighters and police officers are equipped to respond to large scale incidents, but the high demand for service during disasters limits their ability to provide immediate assistance to everyone at the same time. Campbell said it’s important the township has a CERT organization capable of assisting residents, and it’s even more important for citizens to know how to take care of themselves. “Are you prepared? It makes

you think,” he said. “It’s a good idea to get the training and the information.” Maley said, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, only 29 percent of the population is really prepared to deal with disaster incidents. The need for preparedness could be especially crucial this spring, as he said NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are predicting the probability of severe weather due to El Niño. “This year may be one of the more powerful El Niño events on record,” he said. “We may have much more severe weather. That potential is there.” For information about the free training program, call CERT member Bob Miller at 922-8460. Vol. 89 No. 6 © 2016 The Community Press ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

very knowledgeable,” she said. “They’re willing to help you with anything.” She said she likes the fact the library is always trying to improve and offer customers new programs and services. “Every time you turn around they’re doing something to make it more helpful to you,” Salyers said. “They also have a lot of programs and activities for kids. There are always kids here in the mornings and afternoons.” Want to learn how to sew? Make a button? Print and bind a book? Stop by the Main Library’s MakerSpace.

The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is partially supported by tax dollars. In November 2013, the voters of Hamilton County approved a 10-year renewal tax levy which will provide funding through 2024. The 1-mill property tax costs the owner of a $100,000 home $30 annually. In 2014, the levy generated about $18 million , which is about third of the library’s $56 million annual revenue. According to the 2014 annual report, the Hamilton County library received about $36 million or 63 percent of its funding from the state’s public library fund. Taxes represent 32 percent of the funding. Patron fines and fees account for just under $1.4 million or 2.4 percent and other revenue 2.1 percent.

Little doubt – people love their libraries We asked readers: How often do you use your local library - and which branch(es) do you use? How do you use it - online, in person - and what are your favorite and most-used library services? How has your local library changed in the last 5-10-15 years? What changes do you see for libraries in the future? Here are some responses: “I use the Delhi Library at least once a week....I also use the library online. My favorite service is taking the grandchildren to the library which I have done for the past three to four years. A very very nice lady is now our friend as she has been so helpful with the children wanting to go to the library to see her and she has books for the children that she knows they read. Her name is Katie and we all just love her. The library has changed easier way to check out.” Patricia Wegman, Delhi Township

“First of all, the libraries have been such a big help to my sons as they grew up. Books and computers were great helps. The employees have always been patient and informative to my sons and and grandchildren, which I appreciate so much. “As for myself, I’ve borrowed books I was about 12 at the Heuwirth(?) Avenue location (which has been gone for years). I’m 71 now and still depend on the Covedale branch for so many reasons, including VHS tapes, CDs, DVDs and large print books. “I’ve attended the sessions/films/info for seniors (downstairs). Free coffee and donuts. It’s a win-win situation. “We’d be lost without our libraries.” Carol De Armond, Westwood

“I use the library about once a week. I go to the Green Township Library on Bridgetown Road. The best library. I use it on-line to look for books or movies and request them, but I also go there because I love to browse the books. Going to the library for me is like when my husband goes to Lowe’s to shop. “The changes I most see are the new gizmos when checking out. You can lay about five books on that pad and it reads them all. I don’t get a paper trail any

town library is an amazing place where patrons can get seriously creative. I don’t even know of another library that has such a cool feature. Lewis Riley, Green Township

“I still use my local library (Clifton) to pick up books I've put on hold. I take my kids and we pick out books and they use the computer (if I allow it!). Like most families in Clifton, they know and love the local children's librarian, Mr. Eric (Davis). Julia Mace, Clifton

more because I can look on line on due dates. “The librarians I have met are always so helpful. I still ask questions of them. “I love our libraries and the future can only get better because our grand kids and all the generations to come should reap the rewards of what our libraries hold.” Donna Bruce, Cleves

“I love my library! I use the Price Hill branch about once a week to pick up items I’ve placed on hold, to check for new movies so I can watch them at home, and visit with the staff. I use the library’s website daily to renew items, request items, and see what is new. I’ve recently discovered their eBook library and I’m loving it and introducing my sons to it. I check out books, movies, audio books – downloads, CDs and Playaways. “My local branch, Price Hill, has become s place where children and teens hang out and get affirmation for reading, participating in community projects, learning new skills and being in a

safe place. The staff deals with unsupervised children who are sometimes hungry for food and for adult attention, angry adults who threaten them when the rules are upheld, all with grace and dignity and respect for their fellow man. They have made a concerted effort to reach out to our Spanish-speaking neighbors as well.” Ellen Read, Price Hill

“We visit the local Green Township branch at least once a week to check out books and DVDs with our children. They also enjoy playing the computer games available at our location. My 8year-old daughter recently got her first library card. She was extremely proud and excited to start using it. “I’ve been very impressed with the library’s ability to keep innovating. Over the last decade, the library has moved aggressively into digital offerings (Hoopla, Freegal, Overdrive,, etc.) that make it easy for library patrons to expand their mind and keep learning. The Maker space at the down-

“It was exciting for me to see the Press ask for comments about our local libraries. I love everything about our libraries. “When we were in school, my best friend, Sharon, and I would walk from our childhood homes on Suire to the Price Hill branch. I am sure those walks helped cement the close relationship we still have today. I can still remember the unique smell of rooms full of old books. I have only returned to that branch a couple of times since then. That familiar smell was still there along with much needed and much used computers. “I have been lucky enough to be a caregiver to many children for 35-plus years. I have been taking most of those children to the Delhi Library for story time, weekly for many of those years. I have known many of the children librarians over the years. They have all been great with the children and seemed to really enjoy their jobs. I have attempted to instill my love for books in these children and I believe I have been successful. “My ‘children’ love and look forward to our trips to the library and love to be read to and read themselves. Paige, who is 3 ½, ‘reads’ to her new little sister, Addisen. “I have also needed help from time to time from the other librarians and they are always happy to help. The libraries special events and lectures are also educational and enjoyable. “If you are not using library services at this time, stop in and pick up a schedule. I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised to see what you have been missing.” Barb Shively, Delhi Township

Steak, truffles speak language of love I just loved the request Well, I not only have a from a Northern Kentucky recipe that looks like reader for a Valentine’s Day what she wants, I think recipe. “My husband keeps this one might be what talking about his mom’s Swiss his mom made. steak. All he remembers is I also wanted to share that she pounded salt and truffle recipes. What pepper into the meat with better way to say Rita flour, browned it and then “You’re special?” There baked it with tomatoes. It had Heikenfeld are two recipes: one for cheese on the top and was his adults and one for kids. RITA’S KITCHEN favorite. I would like to make Rita Nader Heikenthis as a surprise Valentine’s Day feld is an herbalist, educator, Jundinner for him. If you have a recigle Jim’s Eastgate culinary profespe that is close, I would really sional and author. Find her blog appreciate it”, she said. online at

‘I love you’ oven Swiss steak 1-1/2 pounds round steak, 3/4” thick 1/4 cup flour 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons ea. salt and pepper 1 can stewed tomatoes 1/2 cup ea. chopped celery and carrot 1/4 cup chopped onion 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce or bit more to taste 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 325. Cut meat into 4 portions. Mix flour, salt and pepper and pound into meat. Set aside flour that is left. Brown meat in oil or shortening on all sides. Don’t cook it, just brown it. Place meat in shallow baking dish. Blend remaining flour with drippings in skillet and add rest of ingredients, except for cheese. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Pour over meat. Cover tightly and bake for 2 hours or until tender. Top with cheese and return to oven for a few minutes to melt cheese.

It’s that time of year - chocolate and Oreo truffles.

Elegant chocolate truffles 3 tablespoons light corn syrup 3/4 cup whipping cream, unwhipped 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into very small pieces 1 teaspoon vanilla

In a small saucepan combine the corn syrup and heavy cream. Bring to a simmer and add the 12 ounces of chocolate. Stir until smooth. Remove from the heat and add vanilla. Pour the mixture into a container and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour until firm. Scoop chocolate using small ice cream scoop onto pan lined with parchment paper or sprayed foil. Return to frig until very firm.

Oreo truffles 1 pound package of Oreo sandwich cookies, divided (not double stuffed) 8 oz. cream cheese, softened 1 teaspoon vanilla

Coating: 8 oz. or so high quality melted chocolate, cooled a bit but still liquid enough to dip

Tiny sprinkles/nuts, etc. (opt) Remove the truffles from the refrigerator and shape into balls by rolling between the palms of your hands. Work quickly since the heat of your hands makes the chocolate soft. Dip each truffle into the chocolate to coat and place on wire rack for excess to drip off. Tip: for a quicker and easier truffle omit the chocolate coating and drop the shaped truffles directly into cocoa powder, nuts or coconut.

Coating: 12 oz. bag semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips, melted and cooled a bit but still liquid enough to dip

Crush 9 of the cookies to fine crumbs in food processor. Set aside. Cookies also can be finely crushed in a plastic bag using a rolling pin. Crush rest of cookies. Place in bowl and add cream cheese and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Roll into 1” balls. Dip in melted chocolate and set on wire rack. Immediately sprinkle with leftover crumbs so that crumbs adhere before chocolate coating sets up. Refrigerate until firm. Store in refrigerator up to a couple of weeks.

West Side a logical place for Indian mounds The first residents of Ohio were Indians, who appeared in the area about 12,000 years ago. Their remains still exist in many Indian mounds all over the state. In the Cincinnati area there are 295 prehistoric Indian sites. They are all listed in a publication put out by the Museum of Natural History in 1960, “The Archaeology of Hamilton County Ohio” by S.F. Starr. At that time 146 sites existed and 148 were destroyed or excavated. Over those 12,000 years there were several different tribes known to live here. The Adena were the early Woodland Indians and the Hopewell was the middle Woodland period. Numerous tribes roamed the area after that, among them the Shawnee and Wyandotte.

Cincinnati’s hills and valleys provided the perfect terrain for prehistoric villages of sedentary Betty Kamuf Indians. The COMMUNITY PRESS high hills proGUEST COLUMNIST vided a barrier of protection from other tribes and also a lookout station. The flat plains were good for plotting their villages and the fields where they grew their crops. The woods were full of game for hunting and there were numerous streams and rivers for water. There were many Indian villages of later periods along the Ohio River, but many of

them were destroyed in the disastrous flood of 1792, when many of the villages were destroyed and the Indians left the area for higher ground. The most famous mound in Cincinnati was at Fifth and Mound streets. A tablet was found in its middle. It was 30 feet high and 147 yards at the base. It was not excavated, but rumors existed that it was similar to the Sayler Park Mound. The top was flattened in 1794 by Anthony Wayne, when he made a platform and observation deck. It eventually deteriorated and disappeared. There were other smaller mounds at Seventh and Mound street, Fifth and Mound streets and Central and Richmond streets. There were many sites on the west side of Cincinnati.

CH@TROOM Jan. 28 question Who will be President of the United States one year from today? Why will he or she have won?

“One year from today we will be hailing the almighty and magnificent President Trump. I am not saying I agree with this choice, but yet again it will be a matter of the majority of the population voting against the greater evil rather than for the best choice. I truly long for an election where we can in good conscience vote for the right candidate with passion and belief that he or she is the best and correct choice for the highest office in our society. Trump simply has too much momentum, media presence and too many faithful followers to be stopped. He is saying the things that too many of us feel need to be said, and which the other hopefuls are too PC to state. On the campaign side he doesn't require huge donations and is therefore beholden to none of the special interests. If nothing else, this election cycle so far has been good entertainment.” M.J.F.

“I think it will be Ted Cruz. Most of America will finally wake up and realize that health care isn't a right it is a privilege, that Christianity is the national religion, diplomacy is weak and bombing is strong and good, woman should cede decisions about their bodies and reproductive health to wealthy, white evangelical males, and every citizens duty is to be armed with an open carry weapon of his or her choice. “I can relate very well to his populist story of attending common Ivy League schools, marrying a common Goldman Sach's executive and taking a job where you grind your place of employment to a standstill. For all these democratic and patriotic reasons I see him coming out on top next year.” C.S.

“One year from today, you arrive home excited because you met with your boss today and he said due to increase in business, he was promoting

you to manage the new employees. A nice raise comes with the job. The HR manager informs you your health insurance is going down in price because of increased competition. “Then you think back , a year earlier the country felt like it was rapidly suffocating, No good jobs, increased health insurance premiums and a navy suffering through a Third World country holding guns to their heads on their own ship. “Your choice, America.” J.H.D.

Jan. 7 question What is the best way to handle the Syrian refugee situation?

“I read the readers replies about the potential arrival of Syrian refugees into the U.S. I have a Koran and have read it twice. Americans do not have a clue about what an influx of Muslims into this country will cause in the short as well as the long run! “The book depicts the hatred for all those who have not accepted Islam. Those who are not Muslims deserve death. Any Muslim that believes what the Koran preaches is a potential threat! The following is a reply to a young man who had an article in the Cincinnati Enquirer. “’I read your article in this morning’s Enquirer and the first thing that entered my mind was: Have you taken the time to read the Koran? Ask yourself why isn’t the country bringing in Christian refugees? Is it because Obama favors Muslims because he was raised as one. Multiculturalism does not work! Ange-


A publication of

la Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, stated as much because of the influx of Muslim refugees into her country. The masses have caused assimilation problems.’ “England and France have the same problems with Muslim refugees. Many Muslims like Christians don’t read their Korans or Bibles and don’t go to a Mosque or church. Muslims that do go to a particular Mosque could be radicalized. Jim Hanson who is a part of counter terrorism (Center for Security Policy executive vice president) stated on O’Reilly’s hour that out of 100 mosques in the U.S. that were monitored 80 were preaching jihad. “The more Muslims that take shelter here and become citizens will add to the caliphate that is the head of the snake! There will be more mosques and minarets and the calls to prayers five times a day. Schools will be affected big time! And with a liberal supreme court Sharia law could be passed and men would be able to beat their wives and all that the book allows Muslim men to do. Women would be wearing burqas in public. “If you read the Koran you will see that it is based on the Biblical old testament. The narrative is twisted to bring about a faith that depicts Jesus as a prophet and not the son of God. Christians and Jews deserve death because they have not accepted Islam as the one true religion. No one knows who created the words of the Koran. Muhammad was illiterate and lived in and out of a cave because he probably had some mental issues. Would God send down Gabriel to give this man the words that depict death to all that don’t believe in Islam? I don’t think so! “SURA 47 - Muhammad: When ye encounter the infidels, strike off their heads till ye have made a great slaughter among them and of the rest make fast the fetters. Infidels deserve death! That includes you and me. The word infidel is mentioned 203 times in my Koran. American’s are illiterate relative to Islam and many like yourself are jumping on the bandwagon to bring them here!” RAB

A small mound existed in Sedamsville, another on a bluff by the Anderson Ferry, where the Indians crossed the river, and another a quarter-mile west of Anderson Ferry. Mount St. Joseph University had one on a bluff, which probably promoted “The Legend of Fiddlers Green.” In Sayler Park there were three mounds. Two still exist. Four mounds were destroyed at the gravel pits site in Hooven. There were mounds on Mount Nebo Road, Ripple Road near Harrison Pike, Blue Rock Road, and across from the State Conservation Bureau Farm on East Miami River Road. The most prolific site was the Columbia Power Plant property. It was part of the Henry Harrison farm. It contains

some of the most historic Indian sites in Hamilton County. The most import is Miami Fort, where the Mound Builders built a great fortress at the junction of the Ohio and Big Miami Rivers. On the site besides the fort there were burial mounds, a village were prehistoric Indians lived, worked and conducted religious and social ceremonies. As the years passed other Indian tribes inhabited the site. It was a great place to view Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana. These are just a few of the sites in Hamilton County. Betty Kamuf is a winner of Griffin Yeatman Award for Historical Preservation. She lives in Sayler Park. You can email her at westnews@com

Careers, happiness and furry friends “What breaks your heart?” I was at a conference and the speaker asked this question of the audience. In my work, I am accustomed to asking people what they are interested in, excited, even passionate about. But this question stopped me cold. Let me back up. I believe that when we limit our definition of our careers to just what we are Julie Bauke COMMUNITY PRESS paid to do, we GUEST COLUMNIST miss the biggest picture; the opportunity to engage in the world with our full skill set and with our complete hearts and souls. If you enjoy coaching girls basketball, that is part of who you are and even it if it is purely a volunteer endeavor, it is a part of your unique career set, or your “big picture.” Take a minute and ask yourself what your total career is. What does it include, and what would you like it to have more of? If you are an animal lover, and spend any time or resources on animal-related causes, that is part of your career – part of who you are. I knew I wanted to do something to help dogs, but I also knew that was too broad of a desire. When a goal is too big or too vague, your chances of reaching it diminish, versus developing concrete, actionable goals. What breaks my heart? When I really thought about that question, I had an “aha” moment. Senior dogs dumped at shelters because they are senior dogs. That breaks my heart to pieces. Now what? I know I can’t volunteer in a shelter. My emotions would not survive and I would live as a blubbering mess. I have tremendous respect for those who do. I give money, I get the word out, I work to connect people and resources. I have as many dogs as I can in my

home. But still, I knew there was more I could do. When facing the empty nest, we decided that we wanted more dogs. I knew the number was not 50, but it also wasn’t three. We built a home on 15 acres and attached a senior doggie recreation room, dogs runs and a fenced-in yard.

Dreyer exits Oak Hills after one year Adam Baum


Nick Deifel of Oak Hills fires a pass in a 59-35 win over Princeton on Jan. 22.

Oak Hills boys have good reason for


GREEN TWP. - A quick, cursory glance at the schedule longtime Oak Hills High School basketball coach Mike Price constructed this season is telling. It’s tough — aside from the already difficult Greater Miami Conference games, Price went out of his way to play the entire Greater Catholic League South. He knew they could handle it. He also wanted them to know that. “I think they have a lot of confidence about being about to play with the best teams in town,” said Price, whose Highlanders are currently 12-5 overall and third in the GMC race as of Jan. 29. “Going into this year I thought we’d be good … so I made a schedule that allowed us to play the best teams in the city; playing the best teams in the GCL, playing Winton Woods and our league on top of it gives us a variety of style to play against a variety of teams. I think they’ve taken those tests to heart.” Oak Hills lost in overtime to La Salle, lost on a buzzer-beater to Mason and gave Moeller its toughest local test in a 42-39 loss. But, the Highlanders beat Elder, St. Xavier and they get another chance at Lakota East at home Feb. 9. “Teams see we can compete with anybody in the city,” said junior forward Ryan Batte, who’s currently second in the GMC in scoring with 16.3 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. It’s a confidence that comes from chemistry and hard work when the arena is empty. “I think all the hard work we put in, in the offseason, has paid off,” said sophomore Nick Deifel. “I feel like we trust each other on and off the court.” The Highlanders’ only senior in the starting

lineup, Michael Lake, agreed: “A lot of people don’t know how hard we practice every day. I want to make sure our other teammates get some recognition. The guys who maybe don’t see the floor but they go as hard as they can everyday in practice to make sure we get better.” Even though the roster says different, they don’t feel like a young team. “I guess we’re considered a young team because we have a bunch of juniors and sophomores play a lot of minutes,” said junior Luke Rudy, who’s averaging 12.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. “All these guys started at one point last year,” said Lake, who posts 10.4 points per game and shoots 50 percent from 3-point range. The Highlanders, ranked No. 6 in the most recent Enquirer Division I coaches’ poll, are a matchup nightmare, capable of an inside-out game that can keep the opposition up at night. Price said he’s aware of how problematic his team can be for opponents. “It’s a credit to the young men and their skill work and the time they put in,” Price said. “We can put five guys on the floor who can all shoot threes, who can handle the ball, who can pass the ball and two or three of them can post up. For good teams you have to be able to play different styles. In the tournament you’re gonna see different styles.” Price emphasized his team can still improve, “there’s a lot of little things … we’re not where we want to be yet.” Lake said they want to finish strong, especially for the other seniors (Henry Stucke, Zach Doran, Donovan Saylor). “The last two years we were supposed to be good and we were just mediocre,” said Lake. “We’re trying to have this year be as good as it can possibly be and just lay something down that they can build on next year.”

GREEN TWP. - Evan Dreyer is the new head football coach at Anderson High School, after the Forest Hills School District Board of Education approved his hiring at a Jan. 25 meeting. After one season as coach at Oak Hills High School, Dreyer replaces Jeff Giesting, who stepped down in November after nine seasons leading the Redskins. Anderson and Oak Hills both went 1-9 in 2015. Dreyer said he resigned from his football post at Oak Hills, but will stay on as a teacher for the remainder of the school year. “Anderson is an excellent school district where my family can send our children,” said Dreyer, who went 43-19 in six seasons as head coach at Western Brown prior to Oak Hills. “We know Forest Hills is a great community that fully supports every child. Anderson has a tradition of excellence on the field as well – following coach (Vince) Suriano and coach Giesting has been a dream of mine since I was a player and young assistant coach. “I can not wait to continue the tradition of excellence on and off the field.” Dreyer, a graduate of McNicholas High School and Mount St. Joseph University, began his coaching career as an assistant at Colerain High School, before spending one season at Anderson as an assistant in 2008. The following morning, Oak Hills expressed its displeasure with the situation.

"To say we are disappointed is an understatement," Oak Hills superintendent Todd Yohey said in a statement. "Oak Hills gave Evan an opportunity to coach and compete in Division I football and the GMC. There was a commitment to providing time to build the program around his football philosophy and approach to play calling. To abandon that after just one season is unfair to players, coaches and our community of fans." Yohey said the district wished Dreyer well and will be looking for a replacement coach immediately. Oak Hills will begin the search for its third coach in as many years. “The administration at Oak Hills understood that I wanted to be on the East Side, closer to my family,” said Dreyer, who will also teach at Anderson High School. “Their supwas tremendous port throughout the interview process. The support and growth Oak Hills gave to me was a great experience. I appreciate the parents and community who supported our program. The kids’ work ethic was top notch; I thank them for their hard work and commitment to improving Oak Hills football.” In terms of style, Anderson’s offense should look drastically different under Dreyer, who likes to attack through the air. Last year, Oak sophomore Jacob Hills Woycke attempted 510 passes for 2,947 yards and 23 touchdowns. Anderson passed for five touchdowns and attempted fewer passes (210) than Woycke completed (292).

St. Xavier’s Kuechly: CINCINNATI’S CAPTAIN AMERICA Adam Baum

SPRINGFIELD TWP. - Cam Newton calls him “Captain America.” But, before the nation knew Luke Kuechly, he was Cincinnati’s captain. And in many ways, the 2009 St. Xavier High School graduate remains one of this city’s proud captains with or without football pads on. When Kuechly’s feet hit the field, under the lights of Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., in Super Bowl 50, he’ll not only be representing his team and a fan base – booming thanks to a pair of postseason pick-sixes – but also his family, friends and hometown. Luke knew it as a little kid. “When they’re little this is what they dream about doing,” said Luke’s mom, Eileen Kuechly. As Carolina mangled Arizona, 49-15, in the NFC Championship game Sunday night, Eileen heard a story from one of Luke’s childhood friends, Matthew Reilly, who lives and teaches in Charlotte. “(Matthew) said, ‘When Luke and I were 10 years old we were sitting in my basement … talking about, one day we’re going to be playing in the Super Bowl,’ and that’s what he’s doing for cryin’ out loud,” said Eileen. Luke’s living his dream. St. Xavier’s dream was slightly different, and not realized until much later. The Bomber blue community, their dream was to have a representative like Luke. His uniform’s fashioned with No. 59 and a very telling “C” – which might as well mean Cincinnati, or character, or any other number of words capable of describing Kuechly. “It’s pretty simple, Luke is a better human being than he is a football player,” said St. Xavier coach Steve Specht. “I think if you really looked at all the players in the NFL you are going to find that the majority are tremendous people who happen to be gifted football

players. “Unfortunately we don’t get to read about all of those people.” Specht said we often hear more about the negative issues than the positive. “I guess that’s what I love about Luke; it doesn’t matter if he wins a Super Bowl or is voted the defensive MVP, he will still be the same guy that wants to give his best and leave the world a better place than he found it. That’s the way he is and always will be,” Specht said. “Winning a Super Bowl ring would be great for Luke and the community, but how he carries

himself is what continues to make us proud.” Kuechly is the fourth St. X grad to make a Super Bowl roster. Greg Scruggs (class of ’08) was inactive, but on the roster for the Seahawks’ last two Super Bowl trips. Pat Ross (class of ’01) played for the Seahawks when they fell to Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XLI. Currently, Rocky Boiman (class of ’98) is the only Bomber to play in and win a Super Bowl as a member of the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XL. “Anybody who’s worn a football helmet for 22 years or 22 minutes, every kid has dreamed

of playing in the Super Bowl and winning … it’s the ultimate reward,” said Boiman, who added it’s easy to see why Luke’s left such an impression on this community. “He’s the perfect embodiment of what St. Xavier’s all about,” said Boiman. “To who much is given, much is expected. For him to have that drive and to be as humble as he is and a man of the community. That’s what it’s all about.” Eileen also understands why Luke is so revered. “I do get it,” she said. “But then, we laugh too cause we know Luke. We see him at home

Fired baseball coach fighting for reinstatement Hannah Sparling

A fired Western Hills baseball coach is fighting to get his job back, saying he was unfairly sacked because of a principal’s personal agenda. Matt Phillips, 32, said he was let go Jan. 14 because he wasn’t getting his players to study sessions. But Phillips said that would have been impossible, because the study sessions are new this year, and he doesn’t even have a team yet. According to the Ohio High School Athletic Association, the first day of coaching for boys baseball is Feb. 22 this year. Coaches were banned from any contact with players between Aug. 10 and Sept. 7. The Enquirer requested a copy of Phillips’ personnel file on Jan. 19, but it has not yet been provided. Neither Western Hills University High School Principal Ken Jump nor Athletic Director Brian Meyer could be reached Monday evening for comment. At the board of education meeting Monday, a group of more than 20 parents and players rallied on behalf of their


Western Hills Baseball

coach. Sporting Mustangs hats, shirts and jerseys, they spoke about Phillips’ dedication to the team, the sport and the baseball “family.” Sophomore Gabriel BockMarshall said baseball is what makes him look forward to school. “It’s more than just a baseball team,” he said. “… I don’t know what it would be like not

having him coach me. And I don’t want to find out.” Phillips has been at West High going on three years, where he works security in addition to coaching, he said. Prior, he was a paraprofessional at Oyler School, where he helped start a baseball program. “It’s a dying sport in the inner city,” he said. Phillips’ own career ended

with an arm injury, he said. He took some time away from the game before he decided to commit to coaching. Baseball teaches teamwork, hard work, leadership and “what it means to go for something,” he said. “It’s an outlet that kids haven’t been exposed to,” he said. “It got me into college. It got me to get a college degree.” CPS Board of Education president Ericka CopelandDansby said the board can’t discuss personnel issues in open session. However, she confirmed Phillips did meet with the principal and a district superintendent, and they are “working through things.” Assistant Superintendent Bill Myles said there will be another meeting on Tuesday. Myles said there were “issues that happened on both sides,” but “we will come up with a solution that everyone will be able to live with.” Meanwhile, the coaching position was posted Jan. 19 on CPS’ website. Phillips knows exactly when it went up. “I applied about 15 times,” he said.

and he’s still like a kid, too. He’s a thoughtful person and it comes from the people he’s been in contact with.” On Feb. 7, Luke’s parents and his brothers, John and Henry, who Eileen described as ecstatic, will watch Luke play linebacker in the Super Bowl. They love watching Luke play linebacker, but they love the man he’s become even more. “It has to be the man, because at the end this football will be done. What is he gonna be after that?” said Eileen. “If he is a good man, a man for others then I think we did a good job.”

Energy bill scam duping customers nationwide Now a warning about an elaborate scam that tries to convince consumers their energy bill is overdue and needs to be paid immediately. Duke Energy says it is aware of this scam, that it’s shown up in five states, and that it’s not unique to Duke since it is happening to all utility companies through the U.S. and Canada. However, Duke says, complaints about this scam have doubled in the past year. In Greater Cincinnati a customer named Steve wrote me to say he received a phone call at the end of January from someone claiming to be from Duke Energy. “They told me they have a work order to shut off the electric to my business. I explained my case, thinking they were really Duke representatives, stating that my bill is current – and I checked online that everything was OK, that payment was received.” But, Steve writes, “They went on to say that it has not been received and they will do an investigation but in the meantime a payment must be made within one hour or the power will be turned off. I told them I can give them a payment over the phone and they said it’s too late for that, that I will have to go to CVS and make a payment of $946.” Steve says he questioned that

amount since his last bill was only for $547. “He said it was higher due to reinstatement fees. He gave me a phone number to call. I Howard hung up the phone Ain and decided to call Duke. They said HEY HOWARD! everything was fine on the account-- and they don’t call anyway. They are looking into it,” Steve wrote. The number Steve was told to call began with 844 which is a toll free number not assigned to any particular part of the U.S. After learning the call was a scam he writes, “I took it upon myself to call that 844 number and it really does say Duke Energy with a menu selection. I pressed 1 and within two rings I did get a person that said, ‘Thank you for calling Duke Energy. How may I direct your call?’ This is a very high tech scam, others need to be alerted.” The scammer was trying to get Steve to put that $946 payment on a prepaid debit card. He would then call that phone number, to those pretending to be with Duke, and give them the numbers on that debit card. That would allow the scammers to get the $946 immediately and get away without a

trace. Duke Energy warns, “Prepaid debit cards are like cash and the transactions cannot be reversed. If a caller specifically asks you to pay by prepaid debit card, this is a red flag.” Duke Energy says it will never call and demand immediate payment without first sending you a notification by mail. In fact, it says it will send several notifications over the course of several weeks prior to electric service disconnection. Duke also says it will never ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone. Duke says some customers have received emails claiming their energy bill is past due and instructs them to click on a link to pay their bill. It warns not to click on the link because that could result in a virus being downloaded onto their computer or lead of the theft of their personal information. Duke says it's working with law enforcement to try to stop these telemarketing fraud rings. It says technology makes it very difficult to trace these criminals calls and notes they can be calling from anywhere in the world. Howard Ain appears as the Troubleshooter on WKRC-TV Local 12 News.

very costly and very disheartening if the contractor’s work Michael does not Montgomery solve the COMMUNITY PRESS problem. GUEST COLUMNIST Paying for repairs that may cost you $5,000, $10,000, $20,000 or more that have not worked makes the idea of foundation problems a major nightmare and scares homeowners. People lose sleep over the fear of what the repairs may cost. Potential buyers are kept from making an offer on a home for sale because it may have foundation issues or have had shoddy foundation repairs. With more than 100 foundation contractors in the area, thousands of homeowners are paying contractors every year. When an individual calls a contractor to solve the problem, the contractor sends a sales person. I recently met a lady that called four companies for bids, but only got three different salesmen. The one salesman that returned under a different company name gave her a different proposal. She lost the “warm

fuzzy” feeling of relying on the salesmen. Any potential client is only getting the opinion of a sales person wanting to sell work, not the opinion of an unbiased professional engineer. Contractors provide bids to work on symptoms. If you have cracks, they will probably want to install underpinning systems to fix a supposed settlement problem. If the foundation walls are thought to be leaning or bulging inward, probably every one of them will want to install steel Ibeams against the wall, which may be an incomplete or improper repair. If a house has basement leaks, most will want to saw-cut the basement slab to install a sump pump and maybe cover up the crack. Almost every foundation or waterproofing company in this area does not understand how external forces affect a foundation. If four different companies are called, you will most likely get four different suggestions. The best way a homeowner can protect themselves is starting with a professional engineer. Contractors’ sales people try to sell you their services with well known and “respected” celebri-

ty advertising, good BBB ratings, “A” ratings on Angie’s list, and sometimes even fraudulently stating that they are an engineer or have a licensed engineer on staff. Any homeowner that skips the professional engineer and relies on the sales person may be committing checkbook suicide. After completing more than 10,000 inspections over 18 years, I have homeowners tell me the horror stories. Luckily, some of these have not signed on the dotted line with a contractor. The engineer can provide engineering designs or details that several contractors can bid the same scope of work you can then easily compare prices. Also, professional engineering designs mean you will have a record of the repair work when selling the home. Remember, work installed by a contractor without an engineering design is merely work that has been installed and may only cover up a symptom and cost you more in the long run.
