Price Hill bait shop ready for new season By Kurt Backscheider

Jeff Winch anticipates his business will have a strong year in 2011. The bait shop he opened last year on West Eighth Street did well in its inaugural year, and he expects nice weather and a good fishing season to help his shop grow in its second year of business. “I think we’re on the verge of a great year,” he said. “We’re already seeing more activity this year.” Winch, who lives in Delhi Township, owns On The Way Bait and Tackle at 4538 West Eighth St., next to the Crow’s Nest in Price Hill. The shop will open for the season on Monday, March 7. Winch said the business, which will be open seven days a week, is in his late father’s old workshop. He said turning the space into a bait shop seemed appropriate. “I have a fond memory of my father taking me fishing when I was a kid,” he said. “We hope this business will make my dad proud.” Larry Cox, also of Delhi Township, is the new manager of the bait shop, and he’s already been to work making improvements at the store. He’s converted two large deep freezers into

live wells, increasing the shop’s capacity to store live bait and increasing the longevity of the bait. Cox said the shop can carry four times the amount of bait it did last year, and it can also offer customers a greater variety of bait. On The Way sells bait for all types of fish, whether fishermen are casting lines to catch catfish, bass or crappie. The shop offers minnows, meal worms, red wigglers, cut shad, chicken liver, night crawlers, shiners, mud leeches, herring, Israeli carp, goldfish and blue gill. “We are the only shop within 50 miles carrying live blue gill,” Cox said. On The Way is also one of the only fullservice bait shops on the West Side. Cox said the closest full-service bait shops are in Latonia, Ky., and Lawrenceburg, Ind. In addition to bait, he said the store also carries hooks, sinkers and lures, as well as a variety of new and quality used fishing equipment. The shop can also repair equipment depending on its condition and the model, he said. “We want to provide whatever service the customer needs,” he said. Winch said a positive attribute of his shop is the fact that it’s a hands-on operation, and the folks in charge know exactly where they obtained the bait and how long it has been in the store.


Larry Cox, manager of On The Way Bait and Tackle in Price Hill, inspects a handful of minnows. Cox is the new manager of the shop, which is entering its second year of business and hopes to have a strong year and good fishing season. “It’s a good, little, seasonal family business,” he said. “We hope to be here for a while.” For information about On The Way, call 692-2073 or visit

Each student read for 15 minutes, then shared their experiences with the group. Seton students joined more than 1 million readers across the United States who take part in the Read-In during February.

Oak Hills athletes lead by example By Kurt Backscheider

Grace Freihofer said she knows her actions have an impact on the lives of the people around her, so she works hard to represent her family, her school and her team as best she can. The Oak Hills High School senior leads by example, and is one of several student-athletes at the school who help make sure younger generations of Highlanders know what it means to be leaders and good role models. Freihofer, who was a captain of the girl’s varsity cross country team this school year, is a member of the Captain’s Council at Oak Hills. The council is made up entirely of team captains from every varsity team at the high school, and the group meets monthly with Athletic Director Jan Wilking to discuss issues facing the players, teams, school and community. Members of the council work to find and implement solutions through their role as leaders, and also visit the elementary schools in the district to speak to fourthand fifth-graders about leadership qualities like honesty, integrity, sportsmanship and communication. “We talk to the students about how, as captains, we are leaders of our teams and leaders within the school,” Freihofer said. “We talk to them about the characteristics that make good leaders.” Wilking said this is the second year for the Captain’s Council. She said it is part of the athletic department’s Champions for Life program, which starts working with student-athletes when they are freshmen and helps them develop skills to excel as leaders beyond high school. She said the goal is to build leadership and character qualities within studentathletes that will carry over not only to their teams, but into their lives as well. “These are all great kids,” Wilking said. Freihofer and five other seniors who are varsity captains stopped by J.F. Dulles Elementary School to visit


Oak Hills High School senior Justin Moore signs autographs for fifthgraders at J.F. Dulles Elementary School following a presentation by the Captain’s Council, a group of captains from the high school’s athletic teams who speak to elementary students about leadership and character. Moore was a captain on the varsity soccer team this school year. with fifth-graders Thursday, March 3. “They all look up to you,” said Kelsey Laumann, a senior who was captain of the girl’s soccer team this year. “It’s important we provide a good example for the younger kids.” Jackie Raabe, who is captain of the softball team, said she enjoys going into the elementary schools. “It’s cool that we can influence the kids at such a young age and put them on the right path,” she said. Brett Frondorf, captain of the boy’s cross country team, and Justin Moore, captain of the boy’s soccer team, said they look forward to meeting with the younger students. “They are fun to be around because you never know what they are going to say or ask,” Frondorf said. “The kids are funny.” Moore said it’s great preparation for his future career. He wants to be a teacher. “It’s hard to make a presentation to a group of kids,” he said. Alex Saulsbury, who is captain of the football and track teams, said the great part about the sessions is the fact that both the elementary students and the upperclassmen benefit from them. “I wish someone from the high school came to speak to me when I was in grade school,” he said.

Sayler Park teacher makes hall of fame By Heidi Fallon

For three decades, Dotty Schnurrenberger taught Sycamore High School students the necessary art of home economics. During her tenure she also washed football uniforms, advised the pep and knitting clubs, and tailored more costumes and school attire than she can recall. Her 33 years of dedication to the Aviators was rewarded recently when she was inducted into the Sycamore High School Hall of Fame. “It really was a nice honor,” she said, while showing a banner that was displayed at the January banquet. “It’s taller than I am,” she said of the banner depicting a younger, but certainly not less enthusiastic school supporter. “I don’t know who nominated me, but I’d bet it was

The Sayler Park woman taught there for almost 34 years. one of my cheerleaders.” Schnurrenberger spent her entire career at Sycamore and retired in 1985.

Her husband, Don, whom she met on the job, was the Aviator football coach. That, she said with a smile, explains hours of washing uniforms. “We couldn’t put them in a dryer, so I had to drape them all on a fence,” she said. Even though she’s been away from the classroom for almost as long as she spent teaching, Schnurrenberger has found plenty to keep her busy. She and another fellow retiree organized what they dubbed RAVES, for retired Sycamore teachers. “We get together about every other month for lunch,” she said. “I still go back to support programs and activities, and I love going to class reunions. “It’s so much fun to see kids I haven’t seen in a while.” She also loves to paint and quilt and keeps her historic Sayler Park home

accented with her creations. “I really loved teaching,” she said, “especially the food labs. “What I didn’t like was all the grocery shopping. “So much of what had been home economics was dealt out to other classes over the years, but when I retired, I bet two-thirds of my cooking classes were boys. “They were a lot of fun and really liked to cook.” If she hadn’t followed several family members into the education field, Schnurrenberger said she likely would have been a missionary or a nurse. “I’m glad I became a teacher and I have so many fond memories,” she said. “Being in the hall of fame was just the perfect touch.” Other inductees with Schnurrenberger were Don Hadden, Dauna Browning Armstrong, Beth Wells Atnep, Jim Allison and Michael Matthews.

School counts down 100 days By Heidi Fallon

Whether it was counting out 100 pennies or chatting with three 100-year-old folks, Sayler Park Elementary School students got a visual and fun lesson as they celebrated 100 Days of School Feb. 2. The 100-year-old folks were actually three Sayler Park residents – Doc Dazier, Linda Bingham and her granddaughter, Keira Webb – who donned as close to period dress as

they could find in their closets and brought along a cane and a corncob pipe to make their kindergarten classroom visit more believable. “The students really believed they were all 100,” said kindergarten teacher Maureen Born. “Even the 3year-old girl, they thought was 100. “The students asked about outhouses and how they got to school without a school bus and were fascinated with Dazier’s corncob pipe.

“It really was a practical and fun lesson in the concept of then and now, and how different things were back then.” Principal Gary Vale said the 100 Days of School has become a tradition for students. “They bring in 100 pennies or 100 Cheerios and write about their 100 days of school so far,” Vale said. “It’s something we’ve been doing probably for the last 10 years, to sort of reinvigorate everyone after the holiday break.”

Delhi Township police say a wary resident was able to spot a scam before becoming a victim. Lt. Joe Macaluso said Danette Berninger called police after becoming suspicious about a response she received from an ad she placed on Craig’s List. “She was selling some furniture items and received a response and, then, a check for $2,500,” Macaluso said. “The furniture was listed for sale at $250.” The extra money was to cover shipping and she was to return the balance. None of the information the woman received, including the check, matched. “There were different addresses and you couldn’t read the signatures,” Macaluso said. “She was correct in her concerns.” After becoming suspicious, Berninger said she emailed the person who had contacted her. “She had told me she was deaf and wouldn’t give me a phone number, so all the correspondence was e-mail. “She kept telling me to

cash the check, but I told her I had called the police and turned it over to them. “That was the last I heard. “I just knew this had to be a scam and if I hadn’t done anything, I would have been out my furniture and the money.” Macaluso said this is just another example of the types of scams out there. “We can’t stress it enough that if something sounds too good, it is. “We had one similar case recently where the address the person was given was actually the prime minister of England. “If people would do an initial Google check and, certainly, call us if there is any question at all. Although, there’s not much we can really do since almost all of these cases originate out of the country. “The big thing is that you should never get involved with anyone who wants you to send them money without a thorough check of what and who they are. “Our resident was able to spot the scam and not be a victim, which could have been a classic case of fraud.”

It’s not just about getting you back on your feet. It’s about getting you back to your life.

Owners of Philipps Swim Club expect to stay closed Gannett News Service Zeek Childers feels the first warm breeze of the coming spring and knows it’s almost time to get to work at the Philipps Swim Club. He only has a few more weeks before he’s supposed to start setting up picnic tables, stocking the snack bar and filling a pool that has been making summer memories for generations of kids. It’s been this way every spring for 81 years at Philipps, one of Cincinnati’s oldest and largest pools. But Childers, the club’s owner, says this spring will be different. He sent a letter to employees last week warning them that rising costs, declining membership and an unexpected jump in his sewer bill will likely force the West Side landmark to close, for at least this year and possibly forever. “The bottom line is there’s just not enough money coming in to cover what’s going out,” said Childers, who owns the pool with his wife, State Rep. Denise Driehaus. “It’s a miserable situation.” Swim clubs across the country have suffered during the recent economic downturn as families cut luxury items so they can pay the bills. At the same time, costs for chlorine, water and electricity are going up, putting the squeeze on both private and public pools. The city struggles every summer to open its pools and has closed several in the past decade.

Steeped in history

• The Philipps Swim Club opened in 1929 as one of three pools built in Cincinnati by Frank and Louise Philipps. The others, in Avondale and Walnut Hills, closed decades ago. • Club employee Don Schmitt became owner in 1970 after the Philipps’ daughter, Miriam, died. • Schmitt sold the club to Zeek Childers and Denise Driehaus in 1999. • Philipps’ pool holds 500,000 gallons of water and is the largest in Cincinnati, though not in the region. The biggest by far is Coney Island’s Sunlite Pool, which holds more than 3 million gallons of water.

“We’re not alone,” Childers said. “But that doesn’t make us feel any better.” The bad news about Philipps spread quickly among the club’s regulars. Many live within walking distance of the club, which is in the heart of Price Hill’s business district, and others are from families that have been members for decades. A Facebook page dedicated to saving the club went up days after Childers sent the letter, and community leaders have said they are talking to the Metropolitan Sewer District about getting the club a break on its bill. “It’s a tremendous loss to the community,” said Chris Gramke, who is a club member with his wife and three kids. “It’s a neighborhood pool. The kids go there and spend the summer.” Philipps, located just off Glenway Avenue, has been a summer mainstay in West

Price Hill since it opened. Flanked by houses on one side and fast food restaurants on the other, the club is a throwback to the days when most families worked and played close to home. Younger kids still ride their bikes to the club and chain them to the big fence alongside the pool, while older kids become lifeguards or man the snack bar. The adult staff consists mostly of teachers, like Childers, who have worked summers there for years. The mammoth pool, which holds 500,000 gallons, is the largest in the city and is the club’s main attraction. But long-time members say the club’s connection to generations of working class, West Side families is what makes it special. “There are a lot of memories there,” said Jamie Swafford, a Delhi Township resident who grew up as a

club member and planned to take her two young children there. “It has a history. It’s kind of like an icon.” But Childers said the rough economy and a changing culture are threatening to make Philipps a relic. He said membership has fallen from 525 families a decade ago to 250 last year. In the past year alone, the club lost more than 100 families. The economy is partly to blame, he said, but so are changes in the way families and kids spend their summers. Year-round youth sports, busier family schedules and more entertainment options, from video games to amusement parks, all conspire against the traditional swim club. “There are just a lot of other options,” Childers said. “It’s not just a lazy summer any more, where kids hang out at the pool.”

Trusted Senior Home Care West Side Business Serving West Side Seniors

Despite the downward trend, Childers said he and his wife thought they could keep the place going at least another year. They increased family membership fees from $510 to $620 and figured that would be enough to see them through the summer if they could attract just 50 more families. But then they got their sewer and water bill. Childers said costs jumped about $20,000 because of a change in the way the sewer district calculates rates for pools and other commercial users. Officials at the sewer district say the costs are so high this year because the swim club owes back dues. They say had the club installed a new meter three years ago, the charges wouldn’t have stacked up. County Commissioner Todd Portune said he’s

working with the sewer district to cut the club a break, but Childers said he’s yet to see a deal that will keep the club open. “It would have been tough to open any way,” he said. “But that’s the straw that breaks the camel’s back.” For Childers, who bought the club in 1999, closing would take an emotional toll, not just a financial one. He said he knows how much the place and its history means to the community. He and his wife are only the third family to own the club since Frank and Louise Philipps built the pool more than 80 years ago, and he feels a responsibility to keep it alive. “There are people who have been coming here for 40 or 50 years,” Childers said. “You’d watch families grow up.”

Elder falls to Princeton in sectional finals By Tony Meale

Hudson Klauke did it again. In the final game of the regular season Feb. 18 at St. Xavier, the Elder High School senior guard hit a game-tying shot in the wan-

ing seconds of regulation to send the GCL-South showdown into overtime. The Panthers won 61-54 in what was head coach Joe Schoenfeld’s 300th career win. Klauke, however, didn’t stop there; he brought his high-wire act to the postseason.

With Elder trailing Colerain 48-47 in the sectional semifinals March 2 at Princeton, Klauke hit a bucket with four seconds remaining to put the Panthers up 49-48. “That’s two games in a row for him,” Schoenfeld said after the win. Colerain’s out-of-bounds play fell short at the buzzer. “We killed them by one,” Schoenfeld joked, relieved that his seniors would get to play another game. Klauke finished with seven points, while senior Corey Cason has teamhighs of 13 points and seven rebounds. Seniors Alex Viox and Ross Tierney scored nine and eight, respectively. “The seniors played real hard,” Schoenfeld said. “Corey did a great job and had a lot of rebounds in the second half, and Alex and Ross both had good games around the basket.” The Panthers won despite getting outrebounded 37-25, including 17-10 on the offensive glass. Nevertheless, they led 19-18 at halftime. “I told the guys at halftime that we were playing good defense; we just weren’t getting rebounds,” Schoenfeld said. “We did a much better job of that in the second half. It was just a barnburner of a game.” Unfortunately for the Panthers, their season came to a close in the sectional finals March 5 at the University of Cincinnati. No. 11 Elder fell to No. 4 Princeton 52-38 in a rematch of the Feb. 15 affair, when the Vikings prevailed 51-38 at home. Cason and Viox led Elder with 10 points apiece.

The politicians have smoke screened supporters of SB 5 by blaming unions’ collective bargaining for the current fiscal crises.

their jobs far more difficult and dangerous. The politicians will use any savings from cutting those budgets to continue being the culprits of tax dollar wasteful frivolous projects. By the way have we seen any politicians introduce a senate bill that would reduce their exorbitant pay, benefits, pensions and health care? This is arrogant and hypocritical and lacks any leadership. The Cincinnati city manager’s salary is $233,850. Our (parttime) city council members voted themselves a $62,000 salary and they don’t collectively bargain! On the other hand our Cincinnati firefighter union members voted overwhelmingly to accept a 0 percent raise for the next two years because we know the economy is in a slump. That shows leadership and collective bargaining working at it’s best. My grandfather was a Cincinnati fireman and he died of lung cancer one month before his retirement. Conditions were not good back then and the need for collective bargaining was imperative for safety and many other

items. Ask your grandparents on the abusive conditions from long ago. Keep in mind that history will repeat itself if forgotten. Everyday our firefighters are subjected to HIV, hepatitis, TB, meningitis, cock roaches, rats, bed bugs, chemical and biological hazards and exposures. It is a job that can be brutal on the body. Ask a firefighter if they have ever fallen through a floor or roof of a structure fire. Over 81,000 firefighter injuries occur annually in the United States. Just last week 20 firefighters were injured in a structure fire where a building collapsed on them. I’m sure they have back and other significant injuries. I don’t think that a pension retirement of 60 percent after 25 years in a job of this nature is out of control. The physical demands and wear on the body shortens a fireman’s ability to work in this profession as opposed to other professions where it’s feasible to work well into your 60s. A retired fireman is more likely to die sooner than someone retiring from other professional occupations. Fireman see some of the most

Covedale: Make it 53rd neighborhood The residents of Covedale are demanding equal recognition because the identity of Covedale as a separate neighborhood in Cincinnati is what is best for the neighborhood that we live in, the surrounding neighborhoods and the city of Cincinnati. This is about continuing the success that Covedale has seen through years, improving our position in the city and in the region as an affordable community within the city limits that provides a variety of amenities. This isn’t a move we are making because we think we are better than anyone else. We feel this is necessary because we have different needs than our neighbors in West Price Hill. In 1930, Covedale was annexed in to the city of Cincinnati. It was not annexed into West Price Hill, just into the city of Cincinnati. The debate prior to 1930 was if Covedale would become a village or become part of Cincinnati. Long story short, Covedale became part of the city. Through the years, the Covedale identity has become muddled and full of controversy. This is due to the way the city rec-

ognizes “official” neighborhoods and the Price Hill Civic Club actively stretching the neighborhood boundaries to include Covedale Darryl through the Cordrey II years. is Community thatThethefactWest Press guest Side suffers from columnist neighborhoods that are too large and have become unmanageable, including the West Price Hill neighborhood. When you have “neighborhoods” over 20,000 residents run by community councils that are attended by an average of less than 50 people and the same people are elected over and over again, you have neighborhoods that become stale and community councils that become too political and lack vision and leadership. The community needs a comprehensive strategy for both neighborhoods. For Covedale the goal would be to enhance our image as the gate-


way to Cincinnati from western suburbs. We need a plan that grows our theater district as a unique and vibrant area, enhancing our housing stock and value by promoting such areas as the Covedale Garden District and Overlook Heights as communities within Covedale. The key is to not only grow our neighborhood, but improve the surrounding neighborhoods in this process. The neighborhoods that thrive in Cincinnati are the ones that have the residents engaged and strong leadership. In Covedale, we have wonderful residents that want Covedale to succeed as a vibrant neighborhood that is part of Cincinnati. New leaders are emerging, some that are third and fourth generation West Side residents, along with some that have moved to Covedale from other neighborhoods and other states. We want one thing, and that is for Covedale to become a separate neighborhood as it was before 1930. This is the best result for those that live in Covedale and for the city of Cincinnati. Darryl Cordrey II is a member of the Covedale Neighborhood Association.

Clovernook helps all live with low vision Monday, February 28th, 2011 marked the end of low vision awareness month. Its purpose is to raise awareness about the meaning of low vision and the resources available to assist people in making the most of their remaining eyesight. Clovernook Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired located in North College Hill exists to help individuals and their families overcome the challenges of living with a visual impairment. Although February is low vision awareness month, Clovernook remains focused on the issue yearround. Low vision is a term commonly used to mean partial sight, or sight that is not corrected with contact lenses or standard glasses. It can be a result of either congenital disease or acquired factors and does require special attention to maintain quality of life.

According to Vision Problems in the U.S., 4.6 million Americans over the age of 40 are v i s u a l l y impaired or blind. The most Dr. Richard S. common causes Kerstine of low vision are related, such Community age as macular Press guest d e g e n e r a t i o n , columnist g l a u c o m a , cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. This, combined with the fact that every day for the next 19 years more than 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65, indicates that low vision is – and will remain – an important issue. Here’s where Clovernook comes in … its on-site low vision clinic (and satellite facilities) are

horrific sights imaginable. We have seen what some “animals” can do to another human being. I’ve lost count on the many patients who have taken their last breath in front of me whether it was from a traumatic car crash or a gunshot wound. It is haunting to have the memory of a crying mother who just lost her child while in my arms. I’m not complaining, it is part of the job that my family has done for four generations. It’s just a shame we have to justify why collective bargaining is a necessity. It is imperative that we have a say in the aspects of our job because the white collar politicians haven’t got a clue to the everyday life of a fire or police official. Don’t let the politicians smoke screen the truth. We need collective bargaining for our police and firefighters. This year will mark the 10th anniversary of the 343 fireman that died going into the Towers when everyone was running out. How easily our society forgets. John Rainey is a Cincinnati firefighter who lives in Green Township.

open to anyone who has been told by their eye care physician that there is nothing else that can be done to improve their eyesight. Please note however, Clovernook’s clinic does not replace the need to see your regular eye doctor. Once a patient has been referred to Clovernook, an eye care provider who has been specially trained in low vision, evaluates remaining vision and prescribes the most effective low vision aids (such as magnifiers and enhanced lighting) based on each person’s needs and preferred activities. No one should feel as if they have to give up their favorite activities because they are suffering from low vision. Richard S. Kerstine, M.D. is an Ophthalmologist and a trustee with the Clovernook Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired in North College Hill.

We have only a limited time in which to bloom It is easier to be a couch potato than an Olympic participant. There are no gold medals for sitting and watching. To be a contestant in the Olympics requires that a person be able to say “no” to themselves and “yes” to a goal. To be a participant in intensifying life we must learn to say “no” to ourselves and “yes” to soul growth. For years an Olympian athlete must say “no” to an easier way of life; “no” to sleeping in; “no” to eating what they want; “no” to doing whatever they feel like doing. How we hate to say “no” ourselves. Yet, to live a successful life it’s necessary. Good parents frequently say “no” to themselves so they can say “yes” to their children; athletes say “no” to their comfort and “yes” to difficult training in order to win; loving spouses say “no” to tantalizing affairs in order to say “yes” to their own love relationship; and resolute students say “no”

to television so they can say “yes” to their homework and a brighter Father Lou future. A l l Guntzelman such selfPerspectives discipline i s extremely difficult. Many Christians are just beginning a six-week period of spiritual self-discipline called Lent. The type of discipline chosen is determined by the person who takes their spiritual growth seriously. Lent is a sort of reality check on ourselves. A television “reality show” is one where we sit and watch how others handle their lives and on-screen relationships. In Lent we are called upon to honestly look at our own lives. We ask, “How well am I really living my life, my relationships, my responsibilities?

Where we see we’re deficient in some way we select some plan to work on our weaknesses in this concentrated period of time. What are some of the disciplines we might consider? Traditionally, Lenten observers “give up” something or “take on” some worthwhile action. The main areas ripe for discipline are food, money, time and relationships. Food is given up by fasting; money by almsgiving to the poor or those who help the poor; overly busy people moderate their busyness by “taking on” periods of silent meditation, reflection and prayer; and relationships are deepened by sharing more quality time together. Once I suggested to a group of married people that a husband might consider taking his wife out to eat dinner once a week during Lent. They smiled and thought I was kidding. I wasn’t. What really frightens some people is to suggest

that they stay away from the computer, or turn off the television, one night a week. Instead, they could read, talk, play games as a family. That suggestion is usually greeted by rolling eyes and a desperate cry, “Then what will we do?” Only gradually do we discover that self-discipline counteracts self-centered egos and the tendency toward instant gratification and ease. It develops a certain mental toughness and sense of responsibility. Too many lives are floundering, aimless and stuck in a rut. Lent urges us to take charge of our own life. Replace stress with inner peace. Cool the superficial dramas, and get ready for a new springtime in our lives. These six weeks of Lent present an opportunity to move ahead. A Jewish sage offers this wonderful image: “Every blade of grass has an angel hovering over it saying

‘Grow!’ ‘Grow!’ ” If we listen closely, we’ll hear the same call encouraging us this Lenten springtime. Father Lou Guntzelman is a

Enjoy ‘mixing’ it up with gluten-free goodies I met Anne Byrn, aka “The Cake Mix Doctor” at a book signing event at Joseph-Beth last week. Anne and I were chatting before the event, and I asked how she acquired this

cake mix doctor empire. Her career began simply. Anne was writing a food column for a Nashville newspaper. One summer, right before she went on vacation, she

put in recipes for five of her family’s favorite cakes. The hook: start with a boxed mix. This began a frenzy of requests for more “doctored cake mix recipes.”

So the cake mix doctor series of books was born, using mixes as a primary ingredient. That idea morphed into her newest book “The Cake Mix Doctor Bakes Gluten Free.” “Thirty million in the U.S. are gluten-intolerant or have a gluten sensitivity,” she said. Her readers begged for a gluten-free dessert book. “They didn’t let up,” she told me. I can understand the need since I get requests all the time for gluten-free goodies, including the latest from reader Brenda Nicholson, who specifically asked for “recipes tweaking boxed gluten-free cake mixes.” Anne makes it easy for people challenged with gluten (and dairy) to enjoy desserts. The book has cakes, bars, cookies and muffins. And talk about connecting with the crowd: Anne shared stories of her own life raising a family, juggling a career, etc. We left feeling like we made a new friend.

Rita’s favorite salmon patties with a side of potatoes and mixed vegetables.

Dairy free:

Substitute margarine for butter Place rack in center of oven and preheat to 350 degrees. Lightly mist 12-cup bundt pan with oil spray and dust with rice flour. Shake out excess flour. Grate enough orange zest to measure 2 teaspoons. Squeeze enough juice to measure 2⁄3 cup. If necessary, add juice from carton or more freshly squeezed juice to make 2⁄3 cup. Put zest, juice, cake mix, sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla in bowl. Beat with electric mixer on low until ingredients are just incorporated, 30 seconds. Scrape down sides. Increase speed to medium and beat until smooth, 11⁄2 to 2 minutes, scraping down sides again if needed. Pour into pan, smoothing top, and bake until golden brown and top springs back when lightly pressed, 35 to 40 minutes. Transfer pan to wire rack and let cool 10 minutes. Run long, sharp knife around edge of cake, shake pan gently, and invert onto wire rack. Transfer to serving plate and, using a toothpick or skewer, poke a dozen holes in top. Slowly pour glaze over cake so that it soaks into holes and dribbles down sides. Or omit glaze and sift


confect i o n e r ’s sugar on top. Let Rita cool comHeikenfeld pletely b e f o r e Rita’s kitchen serving. Store at room temperature up to three days, or freeze unglazed cake, wrapped in foil, up to one month. Let thaw on counter overnight before glazing.

Favorite salmon patties

So many requests for this! Makes sense since Lent is here. The recipe originally came from friend and former colleague, Bonnie Kareth, a Northern Kentucky reader. Here’s my adaptation. Go to taste on onion and celery. 1 can salmon (I used pink salmon) 1 egg, lightly beaten Finely diced onion and celery, 1⁄3 cup each 1 ⁄2 cup Panko bread crumbs or your favorite Pepper to taste Drain salmon and mix everything together lightly. Form into patties and fry in olive oil over medium heat until brown on both sides and serve with lemon wedge and/or dill sauce. Nice sides are sautéed potatoes and mixed veggies.

So good dill sauce

I like this so much I use it on other seafood dishes, as well.

Kiwanis Club sponsors PHEAT What has at least 18 feet, sings and dances, strives to dream big and produce an imaginative, one-of-a-kind experience? It's the talented youth of PHEAT – Price Hill Expressive Arts & Theater program. The group, a new theater-arts collaborative headed up by BLOC Ministries, recently presented their original play “Change of Heart.” BLOC Ministries' staff has been collaborating with Miss Mimi and her local step group to produce “Change of Heart,” an original musical about the hopes and dreams of the innercity. PHEAT – or Price Hill Expressive Arts & Theater – is a creative 'feat' involving 8-10 youth from Price Hill, ages 7-16, who have been hard at work learning everything from singing on pitch, to being aware of an audience, to working together as a team. “Change of Heart” presented a fun, light-hearted look at the tough aspects of living in Price Hill with a few poignant moments. The play's central message


Cheviot-Westwood Kiwanis Club members in attendance, BLOC staff & volunteers, and PHEAT performers were, front row from left, John Murphy, Asha Campbell, Shakiya Campbell, Jedah Brown, Ebony Harris, Brianna Bohannon, Ashley Harris, DeMarco Hatcher; back row, Dwight Young, Michelle Downs, MeMe Brown, Dan Roth, Mello Kirkland , Tony Upton, DeJohn Davis, Reuben Nystrome, Clint Seitz, Mike Keck, Vic Johansen, Bill Gerhardt, Kristina Glassford, Don Flick encouraged both performers and audience to experience a change of heart: looking for the good in every situation. Two free performances were held at the BLOC Mission Center at 931 McPherson Ave. in East Price Hill. Cheviot-Westwood Kiwanis Club, the main sponsors of the play and reception that followed, was treated to a private performance at 2 p.m. A second performance for family, friends and com-

munity members followed at 6 p.m. Kaitlin Grear, BLOC Ministries' Price Hill director, described the students' involvement in the creative process and final performances. “PHEAT has given me an opportunity to witness some students' talents that I'd never seen before. Some found gifts and talents that they didn't even know they had,” she said. “It has been amazing to watch them fin-

ish something pretty big – to stay with something all the way to the end. The excitement and pride on their faces after they finished their performance is something I will never forget. I am honored to be a part of that in their lives.” PHEAT is an ongoing arts program of BLOC Ministries, with a future performance planned for later this year. A second theater-arts collaborative through BLOC has also begun rehearsal for students in the Cleves/North Bend area. BLOC Ministries lives and works in under-served communities. Since 1998, BLOC has offered programs and activities that offer positive choices, build relationships, and bring encouragement to youth and families in stable, consistent, personal and long-term ways. Its three BLOC locations in Price Hill and original 'BLOC House' in the Village of Cleves serve over 2,500 individuals each month. For more information, go to or find them on Facebook.

Nashville Songwriters at St. X The Greater Cincinnati Performing Arts Society presents the Nashville Songwriters at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 19, in the St. Xavier Performance Center, 600 W. North Bend Road. The show will feature three prominent songwriters – Pam Rose, Chuck Cannon and Chuck Jones – who will perform many of the No. 1 hits they have written and tell the stories behind the songs. Rose has been nominated for two Grammy Awards with songwriting partner Mary Ann Kennedy. Some of her songs include “Ring on her Finger, Time on Her Hands,” “Safe In The Arms of Love” by Martina McBride, and the classic country/pop

crossover ballad “I’ll Still Be Loving You,” by Restless Heart, which won her one of her Grammy Nominations. Cannon has been making his name known of late as one of Toby Keith’s top writers. He has written “American Soldier,” “How Do You Like Me Now,” “Dream Walkin” and “We Were In Love,” all No 1 hits for Keith, as well as. An active champion of songwriters’ issues, he served as President of the Nashville Songwriter’s Association International (2001-2003). He still serves on the board and legislative committees. A native Memphis son, Jones’ compositions embody the spirit and soul

of that town. Since moving to Nashville some years ago, he has had his s o n g s Rose recorded by artists as diverse as Patti Labelle, Kenny Rogers, Shelby Lynn, Chris Ledoux, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Charlie Daniels, Deana Carter, Reba McEntire and Peter Cetera. The three songwriters perform together occasionally at the Bluebird Café, a Nashville hot spot where you can typically see some of Nashville’s finest hanging out or showcasing new material. This will be the first time

that the three have ventured outside of Nashville to perform together. Rose has previously performed in Cincinnati with the Greater Cincinnati Performing Arts Society and offered to put the show together for the organization. “It’s really amazing when someone of Pam Rose’s ilk offers to put a show together for you and lines up talent like this,” said GCPAS President Pete Ellerhorst. “You will not see this show anywhere else in the country outside of Nashville. Not only will you get the songwriter’s perspective, I’m sure they will have some great stories to go along with the music.” The Greater Cincinnati


Chuck Connor will performas part of the Nashville Songwriters performing at the St. Xavier Performance Center Saturday, March 19, at 8 p.m. Performing Arts Society is a non-profit charity that features a series of seven concerts and uses proceeds to help support local Catholic

elementary schools. For information on the show or to purchase tickets, go to or call 513-484-0157.

TUKANDU starts March 19 TUKANDU Cycling Club, an organization first formed in 1999, is a tandem cycling club with the purpose of making it possible for blind and visually impaired adults to get out there and cycle right along with others who also love to cycle.

Hobby Lobby opens new store Hobby Lobby Stores has completed its newly-relocated store just a half mile east of it's former location at 5131 Glencrossing Way. The store employs about 50 to 55 full and part-time employees. According to John Schumacher, assistant vice president of Advertising, “We enlarge a significant number of stores each year either through expansions or relocations. The original


location opened 10 years ago on Jan. 26, 2001. Our rationale for this move is twofold – to increase exposure for our store in a high traffic area, and to enhance our customers' shopping experience by providing a wider and more abundant selection of merchandise. With the additional square footage, the new Hobby Lobby location will allow for expansion throughout the store."

Hobby Lobby offers crafts, hobbies, picture framing, jewelry making, fashion fabrics, floral, scrapbooking, cards and party, baskets, wearable art, home accents, holiday supplies and much more. Store hours remain Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., and all Hobby Lobby stores are closed on Sunday. For more information, go to

James Dalrymple, 84, donated bikes to children

Every year on the day after Thanksgiving, James C. “Jim” Dalrymple went to Wal-Mart and bought 20 bicycles. Ten for boys and 10 for girls. “We’d be there at 6 o’clock in the morning, and he’d get the bicycles that were on sale for Black Friday, and he’d put them together,” said his daughter Joann Dexter of Green Township. Mr. Dalrymple, a retired engineer, would then assemble the bikes, make sure everything worked properly and donate them to a church, which would dis-


tribute them to needy children. “ H e thought all kids should have bicycles,” his daughter

said. Mr. Dalrymple, 84, of Delhi Township died Feb. 24 of cancer. Mr. Dalrymple was a native of Mayfield, Ky., but moved to Cincinnati when he was 18. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy, and served in the South Pacific at the end of World War II. He attended the University of Cincinnati, and was a

student there when he met his future wife at a dance, Dexter said. He worked as a test engineer for GE Aviation in Evendale for 30 years, working in testing and development for instrumentation used with jet engines. In 1967, he opened the Delhi Self-Serve Car Wash. He used his engineering skills to design and build much of the equipment in the car wash, and even purchased surplus jet engine parts to use in the business. “We’re still using a lot of the things he created,” Dexter said. The car wash remains open today. Dexter and her

Mr. Dalrymple was a longtime volunteer of St. Rita’s School for the Deaf in Evendale, and began working on projects around the school in the early 1970s. “One time they had a play out there and had to have Peter Pan fly across the stage, but they had no idea how to do it,” Dexter

he grew with the doctors and nurses, she said. “He was planning to give them more this year,” she said.
