Training farmers in an urban district By Kurt Backscheider

Eager to move John Lewandowski and the staff at Madcap Productions Puppet Theatre are eager to move into their new home. “We’re thrilled,” said Lewandowski, artistic director of the award-winning, West Side puppetry group. “We’re incredibly excited.” Through a partnership with the Westwood Community Urban Redevelopment Corp. (WestCURC), Madcap is moving from its overcrowded headquarters on Glenmore Avenue into the old Cincinnati & Suburban Bell exchange building at Harrison and Urwiler avenues in Westwood. The ornate building, constructed in 1925 as one of five telephone switching stations that served the region, is owned by the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, which has used it as a book storage annex for several years.

Members of the Community Supported Agriculture program in Price Hill’s Enright Ridge Urban Ecovillage are celebrating a boost to their organization and urban farming. The farming program, dubbed CSA for short, was recently awarded a $10,000 grant from The John A. Schroth Family Charitable Trust, whose trustee is PNC Bank. The grant will allow Charles Griffin, the lead farmer of the CSA on Enright Avenue, to train new farmers on how to grow food in an urban area. “Most people understand the value in eating organic food, but as CSA members we realize that that value increases through our farming practices,” said Christine Boatwright, fund developer for the Enright Ridge CSA. “We worked so hard to develop this proposal because we know the real value is in securing local food supplies by the people who live here in Cincinnati. It’s difficult to grow three seasons of food without knowledgeable farmers, so with the help of this grant Charles will act as a trainer of future farmers.” Community Supported Agriculture is a way of sustaining

The grant will allow Griffin to train new farmers in how to successfully grow food in small land areas. THANKS TO CHRISTINE BOATWRIGHT farming and farmers in urban areas. Consumers who are interested in safe, wholesome food come together to support a farm operation, creating a community farm in which all the stakeholders share the risks and benefits of food production. The Enright Ridge CSA was established in 2009 and has ex-

panded each year. The CSA now grows produce more than six months a year and feeds about 150 people. Boatwright said the Ecovillage finance team and other CSA members developed a fourpronged approach for using the grant funding. She said the money will go to-

ward defining an urban CSA model to serve as a user’s manual, conducting an employment training program in the education of urban farmers, collaborating wit other groups interested in food to market neighborhood CSAs and providing consultative services to urban farmers. Nancy Sullivan, an Ecovillage member and representative on the CSA farm committee, said the regional food challenge, as Ecovillage members see it, is that there aren’t enough farmers growing food for people. “Commodity crops like soybeans and corn dominate farms locally and throughout the country, and these are used as animal feed or to produce additives like corn syrup,” she said. “Training new farmers to grow food intensively on relatively small land areas in and around cities is key. Potential growers are discovering that a community garden plot or a small backyard garden is very different from growing a lot of food over many months, and that they need more training and experience in order to be successful.” Those interested in learning more about the Enright Ridge CSA can visit

Price Hill Will received a grant from the Duke Energy Foundation to continue the ongoing efforts of building a vibrant neighborhood in East Price Hill. The community development organization was one of six groups to receive an Urban Revitalization Grant from Duke Energy. Price Hill Will was awarded a grant worth $35,000. “The grant is for site readiness, design and promotion of retail space in the community entertainment district,” said Diana Vakharia, director of operations for Price Hill Will. The organization will use the funding to attract future development and businesses to the neighborhood’s Incline Business District, she said. While Price Hill Will has yet to determine exactly how to best implement the grant mon-

ey, she said a couple of preliminary ideas include putting it toward a public parking lot in the area or using it to support a marketing campaign. No matter how the money is used, the revitalization grant is just one more step in the right direction for a neighborhood already buzzing with activity. East Price Hill resident Patti Hogan, who is active in the East Price Hill Improvement Association, is among the many residents who are excited about the redevelopment of their neighborhood. She said the positive changes began a few years ago with the new Kroger store on Warsaw Avenue. She said since then residents have witnessed upgrades to the Warsaw business corridor; renovations of The Elberon begin at West Eighth Street and Elberon Avenue; and the opening of The Flats luxury apartments on Price Avenue.

“The continued development reinforces the positive outlook we have for Price Hill’s future and we are hopeful it will stimulate additional development in the near future,” Hogan said. Vakharia said residents have also seen the construction begin on the Incline Village project, the approval of the Incline Business District Master Plan, the area’s official designation as a Community Entertainment District and, most recently, the opening of the Bayou Fish House restaurant two weeks ago, which opened to standing-room only crowds and sold out of its specials on the first day of business. The grant from the Duke Energy Foundation will continue the momentum that has been building in East Price Hill, she said. “This will allow us to keep adding to all the great things taking place,” she said.

Several Delhi Township residents had more questions than they received answers for at the Jan. 25 trustee meeting. Ron Robben wanted to know why Gary Schroeder was fired Jan. 11 as the township administrator.



Schroeder had served in that post for six years. Robben and several other residents have expressed concern that Schroeder was let go before newly elected Trustee Marijane Klug had a chance to work with him. Klug, Robben reminded her, had said during her campaign had said she

ful community landmark remains relevent. “That building is part of the neighborhood historic register,” she said. “It’s a drop-dead gorgeous building.” Lewandowski said Madcap and its board of directors have been working with the community for two years to find a new home for the 30-year-old theater group in Westwood. He said Madcap has outgrown its existing space, an old bank building on


neighborhood business district, and they are excited about the impact the project will have for the community. “We’re anxious to move this forward,” she said. “We’re looking forward to the opportunity to make this not just Madcap’s building, but Westwood’s building.” McConn said its great the way the public library, Madcap, WestCURC and the city were able to work together to ensure a beauti-

Glenmore Avenue, and needs more room for all of its puppets. The group also wanted a facility in which it could build a performance space so it can present its productions to West Side audiences in its own theater, he said. “The building is an architectural gem, and it meets our needs perfectly,” he said. With 20,000 square feet of space, the building allows Madcap to have a performance venue on the second floor and administrative offices on the first floor. The building also offers plenty of room for the theater group to build puppets and store its collection of more than 600 puppets. Lewandowski said it will be named The Madcap Center for Puppetry Arts. In addition to serving as an anchor of the neighborhood business district, he said the building will also allow Madcap to expand its professional theater training and community puppet workshops, host a summer camp and establish an exhibition hall .

Oak Hills, French students partner

Water’s role in society examined

Oak Hills High School has entered a partnership with Lycée Aristide Briand to focus on the role water plays in a society. This will be done in several fashions. First, students will form a relationship with the partner school, which is on the Iton River in Normandy, France. Second, students will look at the role water has played in literature, music and social stereotyping meanwhile investigating and testing both the Iton and Ohio rivers for water quality parameters. Finally, students will evaluate water quality in Third World countries and the importance of clean water worldwide. The cross-curricular project will include students from French II, AP French, AP environmental science, AP psychology, chemistry and societal issues, AP statistics, and sophomore English. This project was started at the beginning of this school year and will conclude April 3 with a collective in-school program. With the addition of a Memorandum of Understanding signed by both schools in January, Lycée Aristide Briand and Oak Hills High School will become long-term partner schools who positively affect student learning worldwide. The goals of the partnership between the two schools include: » To broaden the knowledge and understanding of students by enabling them to gain an understanding, appreciation and respect for other cultures. » To develop students into citizens who are globally engaged, comfortable with diversity and with the skills to operate effectively across cultures with different world views and belief systems. » To support the teaching and learning of French and English in both schools. » To develop ties of friendship through regular communication. » To develop opportunities for teachers to exchange course material, information on methods and practices and on educational matters in general. » To provide opportunities for contact and interaction with

Oak Hills students Brittany Demaggio, Ally Magliano and Amanda Braun help at the water testing. THANKS TO EMILY BUCKLEY.

the wider school community. » To promote educational excellence in the study of culture, history, geography and literature. » To potentially facilitate visits of students and teachers to the partner school. » To develop a variety of best practices for using technology to communicate and study. » To promote joint problem, project and inquiry based work that requires the collaboration of students and faculty. » To enhance the teaching and learning of international problems and issues. This partnership will allow Oak Hills students and staff to experience a different culture first-hand with access to nativespeaking French students. This will help students and faculty broaden their understanding, acceptance and tolerance of other countries. Teachers will broaden their educational horizons by adding a global perspective to

less fortunate. With those goals, students can’t help but grow emotionally and academically.” Sophomore English classes, under direction from Mike Nieman, are producing two separate projects. One will be an introduction to Cincinnati with specific focus on the Ohio River. The second project involves students compiling a soundtrack of songs

that revolve around water to be shared at the April concluding activity. Chemistry students, led by Kathryn Blankenship, investigated how water filters work. They created their own filters in class and then compared them to the ones created by Procter & Gamble. They will be sharing what they have created with other students as well as those at Lycée Aristide Briand. AP environmental science students along with teacher Shanna Bumiller have concluded their studies on water quality. They shared specific tests with their science counterparts in Evreux and tested the water quality of the Ohio River. They have received water quality results in return from the Iton River and will be comparing these results to share in April. AP psychology and AP statistic students, led by Amanda Ruehlmann and Jennifer Murphy, are working together to create a survey which questions students on stereotypes of Third World countries. The survey will be shared with the French partners. All the results will be analyzed by advanced statistic students. The AP French students, guided by Ann Ryan, will work under the theme of Global Challenges and Environmental Issues. As the sixth annual World Water Day is in Marseilles, France, this year in March, students will create public service announcements to raise awareness for the need for fresh water systems in Third World countries, specifically Haiti and the horn of Africa. These will be shared with the partners in France as well as the Ohio students. French II students with teacher Meghan Sullivan will take a more introductory role in the partnership project. They have already prepared a welcome video for their French counterparts to share Oak Hills information and highlights of Cincinnati. In return, Ohio received a video from Lycée Aristide Briand highlighting their students and city.

OLV actors earn national praise Students from Our Lady of Victory Grade School Players earned national recognition at the 2012 Junior Theater Festival, a celebration of on-stage and backstage excellence last month in Atlanta. Cast member Kalie Kaimann won a Freddie G Outstanding Individual Female Performance Award. Presented by New York’s iTheatrics and Atlanta’s Theater of the Stars and sponsored by leading theatrical licensor Music Theatre International (MTI), Disney Musicals and NBC, the Junior Theater Festival is the world’s largest musical theater festival dedicated to groups working with elementary school, middle school and high school aged students. The 17 students representing Our Lady of Victory Grade School Players, ages12-17, performed selections from “Annie JR.” for adjudication by a panel of national theater. “This group was so good. They

offered us Annie with an edge,” said Kennedy Center director Deirdre Kelly Lavrakas, one of the judges. “ It was fierce. They gave us a new take on the story of the orphans and were able to explore nuances that you normally do not see.” Kalie Kaimann took home a Freddie G Outstanding Individual Female Performance Award, and Kaimann and Ryan Smith were named to the Broadway JR. All-Stars, made up of two outstanding students from each group at the festival. The All-Star students performed the song “You Can’t Stop the Beat” from “Hairspray!” at the closing ceremonies.

Stacey staying home Oak Hills senior football player chooses UC over Michigan By Tom Skeen

GREEN TWP. — Wolverines or Bearcats? For most people it is a question referring to which team they root for. For Oak Hills offensive lineman Caleb Stacey, it was a decision that would determine the next four years of his life. In March 2011, the lineman verbally committed to the University of Michigan, but on Jan. 21 he announced via his Twitter account that he changed his mind and was going to stay home and commit to the University of Cincinnati.

That decision became official Feb. 1 when he faxed his National Letter of Intent to UC and head coach Butch Jones. “(My decision) was mainly about the comfort level I felt,” Stacey said. “At Michigan I really wasn’t that comfortable making my decision. My comfort level really played into it and the fact that I am 15 minutes from home was really big.” With his decision, Stacey will spend the next four years at UC playing in front of his friends and family. “It means a lot to play in front of them,” the 6-foot-4-inch lineman said. “It is definitely a privilege some kids don’t have and I am grateful to have the opportunity and am going to take advantage of it.” Along with being close to home, Stacey attributes some of the reason for staying at home to Jones and the program he is building in Clifton.

“I love (coach Jones),” the Oak Hills senior said. “I’ve only met him a few times but he seems like a guy whose door is always open and his phone is always on. When he signed his (new) contract and it was approved, that is when I knew I wanted to stay home.

Panthers hoops struggle from lack of experience By Tom Skeen

the wins and losses. “Winning overall is a by-product,” Schoenfeld said, who is second on El-

PRICE HILL Success is a norm for Elder. The 2011-12 season has been all but successful. Following a 2-8 football season, the basketball team is sitting at a disappointing 2-13. A major reason: Lack of experience. Only one starter - Chris James - recorded significant minutes at the varsity level last season. “From a whole starting standpoint we have young kids,” coach Joe Schoenfeld said. “Only one of our kids played varsity last season. We are starting off with a lack of varsity experience and it has shown at times.” One of the brightest spots has been sophomore Taylor Lee, who has a special story. This is basically his first season playing basketball since his eighth-grade season. He played one game at the freshman level before injuring his shoulder, missing the entire season. When it was time to play AAU in the summer, he injured his ankle and missed that season. When this season rolled around, it was an unknown as to what Lee would provide to the Panthers squad. All he has done this year is lead the team in scoring with 11.1 points and six rebounds per game. “He has had a really good year,” Schoenfeld said. “To basically make the jump from eighth grade ball to varsity ball is just a monumental one. He’s really done a good job, his learning curve is heading in the right di-

rection and I’m very happy with what he has accomplished this year.” Schoenfeld believes his team has grown over the season and his players aren’t nearly as timid as they were at the beginning of the season. “All the young kids are getting more comfortable,” Schoenfeld said, who is in his 22nd year with the Panthers. “They are not scared like they were earlier in the year. We don’t have that Rock of Gibraltar you can lean on. Our two other starting seniors didn’t really play meaningful minutes last

year and we play a tough schedule where it’s hard to grow up. When we’ve lost, we’ve beat ourselves, but our bad parts are getting shorter and our good parts are getting longer. With the lack of success over the past few seasons, Schoenfeld knows the program has good, but young, kids. The lower level program (freshmen and junior varsity teams) are doing well, which is a key to bringing back the success on the varsity level. Schoenfeld knows that you cannot just focus on

Seniors must meet proper nutrition requirements to maintain health Good nutrition – enough food and health-sustaining food – is important for everyone. But it becomes especially important for senior citizens when circumstances such as limited mobility, limited resources or limited ability to cook make maintainTracey Collins COMMUNITY PRESS ing a wellbalance, nutriGUEST COLUMNIST tious diet challenging. The elderly are particularly at risk of the consequences of a poor diet. Poor nutrition impacts their health and can increase the risk of stroke, exacerbate existing health problems, interfere with the effectiveness of prescription medications and increase depression. Meal time can be difficult for seniors, particularly if they live alone. Seniors who are physically unable to prepare their own meals have an option to receive Meals-on-Wheels. But there are many active seniors who are capable of prepar-

ing their meals but find it difficult to cook for themselves, may not like to cook, or just want to enjoy a meal without the preparation and clean-up. Others may need meals temporarily if they are recovering from an illness or surgery, or when winter weather makes it difficult to get to the grocery store. These seniors often go out to eat, rely on frozen meals, or simply snack instead of eating a balanced meal. Cincinnati Area Senior Services (CASS) now gives these seniors now the option of ordering Savory Selects, a convenient and healthy alternative to preparing meals at home. A Savory Select meal is not an institutional meal delivered in an aluminum tray with a cardboard lid and little choice or variety in what is served. The Savory Selects menu offers a choice of 31 entrees. In addition to the entree, each meal includes a choice of fruits, breads, snacks, milk and juices. Options also include cereals, desserts, a half-gallon of milk and a half loaf of bread a week. The meals are nutritionally balanced and meet FDA dietary requirements.

CH@TROOM Feb. 1 questions Should the Ohio General Assembly revoke the law that allows public employees to retire and then be rehired in their former job, a controversial practice known as “double-dipping”?

“It is not just public employees who can double dip. But most private company employees do not have the opportunity to retire in 20 years. Many public employees have that 20 year retirement window and often with very favorable packages. But that was their choice to go into that line of work so it is fair. I would prefer the retirement tenure for FULL retirement were longer than 20 years or instead a 401K like most private companies are NOW. The Double dipping keeps someone else from taking that job opportunity. I am sure we all wish we could double dip too however. Go Figure!” T.D.T

NEXT QUESTION Should Ohio legislators approve a proposed law making it illegal for drivers to stay in a highway’s left-hand lane unless exiting or passing another vehicle? Why or why not? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via email. Send your answers to with Chatroom in the subject line.

ABOUT CINCINNATI AREA SENIOR SERVICES Cincinnati Area Senior Services connects older adults with resources to help them maintain their independence. From Meals on Wheels to guardianship services to transportation, CASS serves nearly 290,000 meals and provides nearly 45,000 trips for Greater Cincinnati seniors annually. For more information about CASS, visit or call 513-721-4330.

Those caring for aging parents have found the Savory Selects meal program to be a sensible and economical option for meals. It gives them peace of mind, knowing their parent has a nutritious and easy to fix meal on hand. Good nutrition is important to seniors. As we approach the cold and flu season and winter weather, this program can help seniors remain healthy and safe in their homes. Optimum nutrition for seniors can boost energy, increase vitality, preserve mental acuity and prevent disease. Older adults tend to eat fewer calories if they become less physically active and causing their metabolism to slow, and the nutritional requirements stay the same or even increase.

Some senior nutrition tips to consider: » Eat more nutrient-dense food, » Stay hydrated, » Limit the amount of salt added to foods and sodium contents on prepackaged foods, and » Ask your physician to check your B-12 level, which is vital for your neurological health. For information about the Savory Selects program, or to start delivery, contact CASS at 513-721-4330. More information, including a copy of the Savory Selects menu is available on the CASS website,

HEMI program seeks mentors to help educate foster children Since the Higher Education Mentoring Initiative began in 2009, 100 percent of the foster children paired with a mentor have graduated high school. Most are successfully attending college. Considering that nationally less than 60 percent of foster children complete high Moira Weir school and only 3 COMMUNITY PRESS percent earn colGUEST COLUMNIST lege degrees, the success of HEMI to date is nothing short of amazing. The success can be attributed directly to the most important part of HEMI: the 37 mentors who make time each week to guide, encourage and befriend the foster children in the program. But in order to continue its success, HEMI needs your help. As HEMI enters its third year, the program is looking for addi-

tional volunteers willing to devote a couple hours each week to mentor a foster child. Most of us cannot imagine the obstacles foster children face. Access to housing, employment and basic life skills are always challenging for foster children as they leave the foster care system. Most are forced to be self-sufficient at an extremely young age. In 2009, Commissioner Greg Hartmann assembled a partnership between Hamilton County, Job and Family Services, the University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati State and Great Oaks to address this need and HEMI was formed. Each year, HEMI couples mentors with juniors or seniors in high school about to “age-out” of the foster care system. Many foster children have never had a serious conversation about higher education. The mentor’s goal is to expose the foster child to the possibility of higher education and actively encourage the stu-

dent through each step. Mentors commit to at least two hours of personal interaction each week with their student. Once a month, they attend a HEMI social activity. They are also expected to be available via telephone, email, texting, etc. The most effective mentors are able to engage in a relationship based on trust and understanding. Becoming a mentor is a longterm commitment, but by helping a student achieve his or her educational goals, you can make an unimaginable difference. For more information, please call Program Coordinator Annie Schellinger at 513-556-4368 or email Moira Weir was appointed director of Hamilton County Job and Family Services after a career with the agency that started in 1993 as a social worker in Children's Services.

Special meal and a treat for Valentine’s Day Valentine’s Day brings back memories of my first real box of candy. My boyfriend, Jim, came with two velvet heart-shaped boxes of Brach’s candy from the corner drug store. One was for me and the other for my mom. Pretty cool. I learned a valuable lesson: Valentine’s Day isn’t just for sweethearts!

Scott Bien’s Valentine’s Day city chicken and special smashed potatoes I enjoy meeting young people who are cooking simply for the love of it. Scott Bien, a West-side reader, does just that. As Scott told me: “While my education is in law, my passion lies in cooking.” I asked Scott to create an easy, but elegant, Valentine’s dinner. Scott’s philosophy is if you love the person you are cooking for and love what you are doing, you are already half way to a delicious Valentine’s Day dish. (He also shared a fabulous recipe for a mango chicken curry on my blog, Cooking with Rita, on

City chicken/pork

Made from pork loin. The story goes that it was created years ago since pork was cheaper than chicken (Cincinnati being Porkopolis and all). The skewered meat is supposed to resemble a chicken leg. Scott gets his made at Humbert’s Meats on Winton Road. Humbert’s puts five one-inch cubes of pork on each skewer. Scott buys six skewers of pork and here’s how he makes them: Roll each in flour sea-

soned to taste with salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper and curry powder. Sauté in Rita extra-virHeikenfeld gin olive oil RITA’S KITCHEN until all sides are golden but not cooked through. Wrap each with raw bacon and bake at 350 until bacon is crispy. Scott’s took about 60 minutes. I would check after 30 minutes because ovens vary.

¼ cup sugar Pastry bag

Combine all ingredients and slowly bring to boil over medium-high heat (Keep stirring until thickened for best results.) Let cool completely before filling pastry bag. Insert tip down into cupcake. Or poke a hole in the center of the cupcake and use a baggie with the corner tip cut off.

Frosting 12 oz. softened cream cheese 1 stick unsalted butter 2½ teaspoons vanilla 6 cups sifted powdered sugar Pastry bag

Smashed potatoes 3 lbs. red (new) potatoes, quartered, boiled and kept warm ½ pound bacon, fried and crumbled (save some for garnish) ½ medium yellow onion, diced 4 green onions, sliced (save some for garnish) 8 oz. sour cream 8 oz. chive and onion cream cheese 6 tablespoons butter 1½ cups sharp cheddar cheese

Drain potatoes. Add everything and smash. Season to taste with salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper, garlic powder and curry powder.

Cakery Bakery’s filled strawberry cream cheese cupcakes

Scott Bien's Valentine's dinner features bacon-wrapped city chicken and smashed potatoes. THANKS TO SCOTT BIEN. I met Susan Smith of Cakery Bakery at, of all places, my eye doctor’s office. Susan and best friend Danielle Forrester have a specialty pastry and cake business. (Check out their interesting journey on my blog). Susan’s mom made fancy aprons by hand for the girls. Susan and Danielle are sure to be successful since they bring glitz and a homespun touch to their unique creations. Check them out at or by calling Danielle at 513-2597756.


Makes 24 very moist cupcakes. 2 sticks slightly softened unsalted butter 2 cups sugar 8 oz. softened cream cheese 3 cups sifted cake flour 3 teaspoons baking powder ½ teaspoon salt 5 egg whites 1 cup of milk 2½ teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. In mixer, cream butter until smooth. Gradually add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add cream cheese and blend. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Add whites to butter mixture one at a

time, beating well after each. Add milk and vanilla and alternate with flour mixture. Blend. (Don’t over beat – can cause dryness.) Fill foil-lined cupcake pans ¾ full. Bake 25-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted into cupcake comes out clean. Cool before filling and frosting.

Strawberry filling 1½ cups frozen strawberries 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla until light and fluffy. Slowly, add sugar, 2 cups at a time, until all is incorporated. Chill icing slightly before filling pastry bag and frosting cupcakes.

Check moving company’s insurance As the economy picks up, home sales are expected to gain momentum. If you’re in the market for a new home, you need to pay close attention to the insurance provided by the moving company you hire. That’s what a Loveland woman learned after some of her items were damaged during her move. Adrienne Harmeyer says she doesn’t have a lot of furniture but what she does have is very nice. She hired a moving company that’s been in business many years and relied on it to safely transport her items. “The three main things that were damaged were the china cabinet, my grandmother’s drop leaf table and a book shelf. There were other things that were damaged but those are the three big things that we wanted them to fix,” Harmeyer says. She says she became concerned because she found a large gash in her china cabinet even before the move was completed.

estimate and says she was shocked at the check she received from the movers insurance company. It wasn’t for $600, but for just $84. “The insurance company says they only pay 60 cents per pound for furniture that’s moved and damaged,” Harmeyer says. The owner of the moving company tells me he too was surprised by that small check. He says he has full replacement value insurance to cover anything that’s damaged. He says Harmeyer should have received a check for $600. He’s complained repeatedly to his insurance company without success so is now sending Harmeyer his own check for more than $500 to cover the rest of the repairs. This should be a lesson for everyone preparing to move. You should thoroughly review the moving company’s terms for insurance coverage prior to signing a contract.

There are three levels of insurance you can get. The first is minimal reimbursement, which gives you 60 cents per pound for anything lost of damaged. The second is depreciated value, in which you get the current value of your damaged goods or $2.25 per pound, whichever is greater. The third level is replacement value, in which you’re reimbursed up to the replacement value you declare for anything lost or damaged. A moving company may reserve the right to repair any damaged items prior to replacing them. Finally, it’s important to make an inventory of everything before you move - and closely inspect everything afterward so you quickly know whether or not there was any damage and can file a claim.

“I don’t know how it happened. I think it was when they were taking the top part off the Howard china cabAin inet and HEY HOWARD! somehow they damaged it. It’s a fairly large chip,” Harmeyer says. The contract with the moving company says, “We are fully insured at no additional charge.” So she called the company owner. “I said, ‘What are you going to do?’ He said, ‘Don’t worry we’ll take care of it. We’ll have our furniture repair person fix it, but we’ll do all of that once we unload the truck and see if there’s anything else that’s damaged – and then we’ll go from there.’” When everything was unloaded she found scratches on a wood table and got a repair estimate of $600 to fix the two big items.
