Kara Ray thought she was stopping by Corner BLOC Coffee for a housing task force meeting. Ray, the director of community engagement for Price Hill Will, expected to participate in her final meeting as an employee of the comprehensive neighborhood development organization. Her expectations were wrong. Instead of being greeted by members of the housing task force committee, she was greeted by a vociferous “Surprise” from several colleagues and Price Hill community members who gathered for a surprise party at the coffee shop Monday, March 7, to wish Ray well in the next stage of her life. Ray, who spent nearly five years as Price Hill Will’s community organizer, served her last day on the job March 7. She resigned from her role in order to raise a family. “It’s bittersweet,” she said. “This has really become a family for me. It’s going to be an interesting transition.” She said she’s going to miss working with the people of Price Hill, who she said have taught her a lot about what it means to love a community. “I’ve witnessed the pride and hard work they put into their neighborhood,” she said. “I’ll miss the people. It was always about the people for me.” Price Hill resident Ann Andriacco, who volunteers with Price Hill Will’s Arts Community Action

Team, said the members of the community will miss Ray as much as she misses them. “Kara’s been a real asset to this community,” Andriacco said. “She was the one fixed point, and she kept us on track.” Ken Smith, executive director of Price Hill Will, said Ray started out as an AmeriCorps volunteer with the organization, but was so impressive she was hired on fulltime.

“Without a doubt, Kara is one of the most unique, positive, outgoing and helpful people I’ve ever met,” Smith said. “I can’t imagine a better community organizer. She is someone who everyone likes, and at the same time she is very competent and capable.” He said Ray is definitely leaving some big shoes to fill. He said he is scheduling interviews with potential candidates to fill her position, and he hopes to have a

new director of community engagement in place within the next few weeks. Ray said although she is no longer going to work for Price Hill Will, she still plans to be active in the neighborhood when possible. She said she wants to help with a proposed community garden this summer. “I’ll probably never fully leave this neighborhood,” she said. “I love this community.”

Covedale theater is calling all artists By Kurt Backscheider

Spring may be just around the corner, but the folks at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts are already preparing for this summer. The West Side theater is sending out a call for artists who would like to participate in the center’s 10th annual Summer Arts and Crafts Fair. Jennifer Perrino, business manager at the Covedale, said the center is seeking submissions by artists of various media to display at the fair, set to run 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20, at the theater, 4990 Glenway Ave. Perrino said artists in every media are encouraged to take part in the event, and, as always, the artists are encouraged to sell their works at the fair. She said artists who participate will need to provide their own displays, booths or tables. Those

Space assignments will be handled on a first-come, firstserved basis the day of the fair. There is no registration fee for artists, she said, adding that the fair is an outdoor event only and no alternate rain date is scheduled. “The Covedale Arts and Crafts Fair will be growing in the years ahead,” Perrino said. “We hope you’ll be part of this year’s fair and help us build the event for the future.” Artists who want to participate are asked to call Perrino at 2416550 or e-mail her at jennifer

Covedale presents Annie Oakley


Frederic Tacon, left, and Jessie Muni star in the upcoming performance of “Annie Get Your Gun” at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts.

The Covedale Center for the Performing Arts continues its 2010-2011 season with the Irving Berlin classic, “Annie Get Your Gun.” The West Side performing arts center, 4990 Glenway Ave., presents its production of the musical Thursday, March 31, through Sunday, April 17. The show tells the story of Annie Oakley, the best shot around, who supports her little brother and sisters by selling the game she hunts. When Buffalo Bill Cody discovers her, he persuades the girl sharpshooter to join his Wild West Show. It only takes one glance for her to

fall for dashing shooting ace Frank Butler, who headlines the show. Oakley soon eclipses Butler as the main attraction, which is good for business but bad for romance. Ultimately a final shoot-out determines the course of fame and true love. The musical showcases some of Irving Berlin’s greatest tunes “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” “I Got the Sun in the Morning (and the Moon at Night),” “Anything You Can Do,” “They Say It’s Wonderful” and “The Girl That I Marry.” Performances begin at 8 p.m.

Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Sunday shows start at 2 p.m. There is also a performance at 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 13, and audio descriptive services will be available at the show Saturday, April 26. Tickets are $21 for adults and $19 for senior citizens and students. Tickets may be purchased online at www.cincinnatilandmarkproductions, or by calling the box office at 2416550.

Duebber’s Automotive honored By Heidi Fallon

He wondered why his son decided to attend the March 9 Delhi Township Business Association meeting. It didn’t take Al Duebber long to find out. Duebber and his Duebber’s Automotive was honored by the business association as the 2011 Business of the Year. Marc Duebber was on hand to lead the applause and share in his father’s surprise win.

“This really is a surprise,” Al said, clutching the crystal vase that was part of the honor. “This is as big a surprise as seeing my son here. He’s just not a meeting type of guy.” Business association President Stephen Schott said Duebber’s Automotive was picked from nominations from association members and voted on by the 11-member association board of directors. “It’s based not just on how successful a business is,” Schott said. “It’s about

the dedication to the community as a whole and helping make the business community thrive. “Al has been a township trustee and a school board member. He’s past president of the Kiwanis and has organized the charity car show for the last 22 years. “He’s a member of this association as well as the civic association, veterans and, who knows what else.” Duebber said he was just

a “dumb kid” when he opened his business 38 years ago. “I’m proud to have grown my business here in Delhi Township. It’s always been and will always be home. “This is a wonderful honor.” The association started giving the annual business awards three years ago. Past winners are Robben Florist and Garden Center and Russ Brose Tours.

Schools compete, but are friendly rivals Seton High School and Mount Notre Dame are two of the most accomplished dance teams in the nation. Both teams consistently rank in the top 10 at the Universal Dance Association national competition, the most prestigious and recognized in the dance community. While they are two of the most competitive teams in Greater Cincinnati, they are not however, bitter rivals. What is so special (and extremely unusual) about these two schools is the special friendship they share. “We definitely are very competitive,” explains MND head varsity coach Alisia Sullivan Davis, of Liberty Township. “You have to be if you plan to compete within in the most respected division on a national-level. We are up against the greatest dance teams in the country, so we have to go in with a competitive attitude to earn our spot on that final stage. Seton is the only

Dame's dance team over the past eight years has been friendly, supportive, rewarding, motivating and just awesome! What is so unique is that we are, at the same time, both incredibly competitive and extremely supportive of each other.“ The two teams have a great way of showing their support for one another, sending cookie bouquets and other good luck messages to one another the week leading up to nationals. MND senior and Cougar Dance Team co-captain Alex Schraer of Loveland, discusses what it means to have Seton’s support. “As we were preparing to dance at semi-finals in pom this year, we were informed that Seton was in the crowd watching. Just knowing that we had another team out there cheering us on meant the world to our team. We were able to return the favor at jazz finals when we watched their routine and cheered them on to victory.” Seton senior Casey Reagan of Green Township adds, “When all the dancing is over and the awards are announced, it is not about who did better, but about our teams celebrating together the achievements we have shared and our ability to represent Cincinnati proudly.” At the UDA National Dance Team Championship in Orlando, FL, earlier this year and scheduled to be televised on ESPN this spring, Mount Notre Dame placed ninth in pom and 10th in the kick categories. Seton placed 11th in jazz and fourth in pom.

They viewed several film clips about African-American author Reshonda Tate Billingsley, Loyola University students who set two Langston Hughes poems against Walt Whitman’s “I Hear America Singing” and a reading by Lucille Clifton. After the presentation, students were invited to browse through books by African-American authors or that dealt with African-American issues. Each student read for about 15 minutes, then shared their experiences with the group. Seton’s students joined more than one million readers across the United States who took part in the read-in during February.

St. Xavier has a dozen National Merit finalists An even dozen St. Xavier High School students recently became national Merit Finalists. Named were seniors Patrick Ahern, Louis Bodkin, Matthew Cooney, Soubhik Das, Andrew Goldschmidt, Logan Herbers, Avinash Joseph, Douglas Kirkpatrick, Andrew McLaughlin, John Riestenberg, Steven Schmidt and Eric Swank all earned the honor. St. Xavier Principal Dave Mueller ('72) and President Father Tim Howe S.J. – along with members of the guidance department – recognized the achievement with a ceremony Feb. 25. Honorees received congratulations and certificates from the National Merit Scholarship Program for their efforts. All 12 – representing the top one percent of PSAT scores across the country – remain in the running for

than $36 million in scholarship opportunities this year. Many colleges and universities offer semifinalists and finalists additional scholarships to help boost their academic profile. The National Merit finalists join classmate Marcus Hughes, who became a National Achievement Scholarship finalist a week earlier. “Obviously you have done wonderful things with your minds,” said Mueller. “We know you will contin-

ue doing that. We also want you to continue the good work you do with your hearts, to keep being the men for others you are.” “Thank you for all the hard work you do,” Howe told the semifinalists. “It's a great accomplishment for you personally, but it's also something people from the outside look at to see if St. X is all it says it is. Thank you for helping us let people know this is a great school with excellent and motivated students.”

HIGH SCHOOL | YOUTH | Editor Melanie Laughman | | 248-7573

By Tony Meale

There are a lot of things the Elder High School wrestling team didn’t accomplish this year. It didn’t win a league title, it didn’t win a district title and it didn’t produce a state champion. But for all the things the Panthers didn’t do this year, there’s one thing, above all else, that they did do. “I think we performed better at state than any Southwest team in the history of the tournament,” Elder head coach Dick McCoy said. McCoy makes an intriguing case: • Elder totaled 72 points at the OHSAA State Wrestling Championships, which were March 3-5 in Columbus, to finish fourth behind traditional Northern powers Lakewood St. Edward (187), Massillon Perry (109) and Wadsworth (96). • The Panthers advanced five wrestlers to state; all five placed, and all five finished in the top five of their respective weight classes, including two state runners-up. • Elder went 19-7 (.731) overall

and, on the second day of the tournament, which determines placers, went an astonishing 10-1 (.909). • Five of the Panthers’ seven losses were by two points or fewer. • Elder, which finished behind rival Moeller at the league and district tournaments, placed ahead of the Crusaders (66), which finished fifth. “That was icing on our season,” McCoy said. “We had a lot of injuries this year, and I still thought we were a great team. In the end, we proved it.” Unfortunately for Elder, the tournament did offer some bittersweet moments. Panthers senior Ian Korb, who was the favorite to win a state title in the 171-pound division, lost to Twinsburg junior Michael Baker 3-1 in overtime in the final. It was his first loss of the season. “Ian takes things very seriously because he puts a lot of time into them,” McCoy said. “A lot of people were telling him, ‘Hey, we’re still proud of you,’ but that’s not something he responds to real well. “Basically, I told him, ‘Ian, I’m

not going to lie to you. This is going to hurt for a long time, and it’s probably going to be something you live with for the rest of your life. It’ll be something you think back on and wonder, ‘What if?’ But you’ll get by it, you’ll get through it, you’ll get past it – and you’ll be a better man for it.’ “It won’t be the most devastating thing in his life.” Korb, a three-time state-placer, finished the season 38-1. Elder’s other runner-up, Kevin Hyland (189), entered the state tournament with slightly less fanfare. A district champion, Hyland blitzed through his competition before falling 1-0 in the final to Copley senior Sam Wheeler. Overall, Hyland outscored his opponents 19-2. “To have two offensive points scored against him the whole tournament and to finish second is hard to believe,” McCoy said. “But for Kevin to be in the state finals and be that close, it’s disappointing but it’s not.” Juniors Rahkim Johnson (215) and Nick Nusekabel (285) went a

combined 9-3 en route to finishing fifth and third, respectively. Nusekabel’s only defeat was a secondround loss to eventual state champion and Centerville senior Kyle Ross. Junior Tyler Hardtke (152), meanwhile, placed fifth and went 41 after dropping his opening-round match. “I knew he had it in him,” McCoy said. “Tyler works his (tail) off to be good. He’s not the most gifted athlete, he’s not the quickest kid, he’s not the strongest kid by any stretch; but his work ethic is big-time.” McCoy said the drive home from Columbus was bittersweet; Korb and Hyland came oh-so close to winning state titles, but the team overall had perhaps its best state performance in school history. “The state-final losses were disappointing, but when you go back and look at the team’s performance, you got to be happy with everything we did,” McCoy said. “It’s bittersweet, but it was a great run.”

Hall of fame

Seton High School inducted six alumnae into the Athletic Hall of Fame March 11. The inductees are: • Beth Bushman Autenrieb 1995. • Tracey Becker Burgoon 1986. • Suzanne Aufdemkampe Kirby 2002. • Martha Metz 1957. • Amy Schiller 2003. • Susie Keiser Wills 1993. Each person inducted into the Hall of Fame is an alumnus who graduated at least five years prior to the current year, represented the mission and philosophy of Seton during her time at the school,

demonstrated high standards of sportsmanship and accumulated significant athletic honors or statistics during her high school career. The inductees will be recognized with a reception, dinner, induction ceremony and performance by the Seton Highlighters Dance Teams. “The Seton High School Athletic Hall of Fame is a means of recognizing Seton alumnae student-athletes who exemplified the spirit of Seton athletics while at Seton,” Athletic Director Janie Shaffer said. “I am honored to recognize the talent and hard work of these individuals and induct them into the Seton Hall of Fame.”

Seniors lead Saints to best season in years By Tony Meale

To the casual observer, a 7-15 record isn’t all that impressive. But after going 8-54 (.129) in the previous three years, which the Seton High School basketball team did, 7-15 is worth a pat on the back. Even more important that winning? The mere belief that you actually could. “We were competitive in games, and for us, that was most important,” Seton head coach Mike Gleason said. “We got back to the level of other (Girls’ Greater Cincinnati League) teams. The thing I’m most pleased about, we took another step in the right direction and did something we can build on for next year.” Senior Katie Phillips was Seton’s biggest catalyst for improvement; she led the entire GGCL in scoring with 17.4 points per game and was second in the Scarlet division with 7.1 rebounds and fourth with 1.2 blocks. “Katie got everybody else to understand what it was gong to take to be successful,” Gleason said. “She was a leader in games and in practices, and I think everybody else saw that and followed along.” Said Phillips, “I think I had a really good team behind me that was with me every day and helping me to do my best.”


Seton High School senior Katie Phillips drilled this three-pointer over the outstretched arms of Mother of Mercy senior Allie Hart during a 51-43 home win Jan. 25. Phillips, who led the GGCL in scoring and finished second in the Scarlet in rebounding, led all scorers with 24 points that night. It was the Saints’ first win over a Scarlet opponent since 2008 and their first win over Mercy since the 2006-07 season. Phillips, a first-team, allleague performer, dropped 24 on rival Mother of Mercy in a 51-43 win Jan. 25. It was the first win of Phillips’ career against the Bobcats. “When I walked into the locker room after the game, I finally felt like I did it,” she said. “That was something I wanted to accomplish all four years at Seton.” The win came almost three years to the day after the Saints’ previous victory over a Scarlet opponent;

they beat McAuley 57-54 Jan. 24, 2008. It was also Seton’s first win over Mercy since the 2006-07 season. “For it to be a rivalry, you’ve got to win every once in awhile,” Gleason joked. “Historically, the Mercy/Seton games over the years were great games, and that’s something we wanted to bring back. From that standpoint, it was big for the rivalry of the game, and it was big for our kids and our program to see

what it takes to win games like that.” The Saints improved to 6-7 with the win but lost their next seven and eight of their next nine. “I think we lost focus and started worrying too much about getting a good seed in the tournament,” Phillips said. A rugged season-ending schedule – not to mention key injuries, including one to senior co-captain Sam Dresmann – derailed Seton’s

momentum. “Sam had an injury midseason, and we thought she was going to miss the rest of the year, but she stuck it out and came back,” Phillips said. “I can’t explain how much that meant to me. She was my rock this whole year. For her to come back and play was just awesome.” The Saints’ lone win during that stretch was a 55-54 sectional semifinals win over Western Brown Feb. 21. Five days later, they bowed out of the postseason to No. 2 Lakota East 52-35. Seton forward Marisa Meyer, who finished second on the team in scoring, scored 22 against East and earned second-team, allleague honors; she was the only sophomore in the Scarlet to do so. “I think people tend to forget she’s only a sophomore because she started as a freshman,” Gleason said. “She does everything right.” Meyer will lead Seton next season, as the Saints say good-bye to four of their top five scorers – seniors Phillips, Dresmann, Abbey Scherer and Lindsey Thompson. “I couldn’t have picked four better kids to be leaders of this team; the sacrifices they made were incredible,” Gleason said. “People in our program see and recognize that, and I think it will pay dividends for us in the future.”

Lancers win districts with heavy hearts

Ryan Fleming sat on the bench in victory and sobbed into the blue towel draped around his neck. The tears weren’t for winning a district title. Far from it. The La Salle High School senior guard has been there, done that. Three times now. No, the tears were for five days of frustration, five days of worry, five days of fear. They were the tears of a son whose father couldn’t be there. “It’s been a real rough week,” Fleming’s senior teammate Brandon Neel said. “Ryan has a lot on his mind, and in practice you could tell he just wanted to come out here and play for his dad and win. We all just had to pick him up and help him.” So they did. Five days after learning their coach, Dan Fleming, had suffered a heart attack, the Lancers dismantled Meadowdale in the Division I district finals March 12 at University of Dayton Arena. Neel scored a game-high 18 points, while senior teammates Josh Lemons (13) and Trey Casey (12) combined for 25 in the 8061 win. “I really respect these seniors; they’re men,” said La Salle’s junior varsity coach Pat Goedde, who is filling in for Fleming. “We’ve had heavy hearts all

Neel finished with a game-high 18 points. week long. You saw (Ryan’s emotions) at the end of the game.” La Salle appeared out of sorts in its first few possessions and trailed 4-0, but the Lancers – using a fullcourt, pressure defense – went on a 13-0 run, led 2718 at halftime and were up by as many as 19 in the third quarter.

“Our work ethic really put us through this game,” Goedde said. “We’ve got a group of guys who will fight and scrap and work. Dan’s really important, but these guys are going to go out and do it.” Neel took it upon himself to set the tone early, attacking the rim with determination in his heart and an

unforgettable image etched in his mind. “It’s been rough,” Neel said. “I was in class when Ryan came and told me (about his dad), and he was crying. I just hugged him.” Ryan finished with six points and six rebounds. Goedde wasn’t sure who was sending – or even if someone was sending – upto-the-minute updates to Fleming, who was not allowed to be in attendance at UD. “I know he was probably yelling and screaming about what I was doing,” Goedde joked. “I know he wasn’t sitting there all nice and calm.” La Salle (22-2, 9-1) faces Winton Woods (20-3, 14-0) in the regional semifinals March 16 at the Cintas Center at 8 p.m. The Lancers beat Winton Woods 68-55 on the road Jan. 4. If victorious, they advance to the regional finals to face the winner of Moeller vs. Withrow March 18. La Salle has advanced to the regional finals each of the last two years, losing to the Crusaders in overtime in 2010. If the Lancers get over the hump this year, they’ll have to do it without Fleming, who has coached at La Salle for more than 20 years and has more than 300 career wins. “Health comes first,” Fleming said via email. “We have a very capable assistant and a very experienced

senior-laden team. We will be fine.”

This week’s question: In light of reports of teachers cheating to prepare their students for standardized tests, what changes would you make to the testing and school evaluation system? What actions, if any, should be taken against the teachers?



Editor Marc Emral | | 853-6264






LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ways are empty. In our neighborhood of Tuxworth and Clevesdale you can’t drive up the street without having to go in and out to let cars down or up the street. Many of our

friends comment on this and ask us why no one parks in their driveways. And the city won’t put up a no parking sign on one side of the street. It’s a mess.

I just ask our good neighbors to please use their driveways or garages, so that everybody can get up the streets. Steve Cagney West Price Hill

Last week’s question

Do you agree with theSupreme Court’s decision allowing protesters at military funerals? Why or why not?

“Having retired after 22 years in the U.S. Marine Corps it upsets me to the point that this ‘church group’ does the inconsiderate actions at funerals of young members who served their country with valor and courage. Yes, they do have the freedom of speech and the Supreme Court’s decision is correct for all the citizens of our great country, but less they forget if not for young people sacrificing their lives and time away from loved ones this ‘church group’ would not be able to protest. If we do not protect our rights we loose all that we the military have fought to keep for hundreds of years. Its shameful what this ‘group’ does and they somehow should be restricted or stopped; instead protest at the White House. In all actuality they aren’t really Christians as they claim to be nor are they religious in any way. In my opinion this ‘church group’ are the most disgusting people I have ever heard of or seen.” C.J.H. “While I believe in First Amendment rights, I think the demonstrations at military funeral are outrageous and cruel. I was disappointed that the Supreme Court couldn’t see how hurtful this is to friends and families of those who served their country bravely.” E.E.C. “I have not read the opinion. I understand freedom of the press and freedom of speech. While I understand those freedoms of ‘expression,’ there are ‘protections’ for invasion of privacy. What could be more private than a funeral? “You lose your freedom to be left alone when you make yourself a ‘public figure.’ A fallen military hero did not choose to be a ‘public figure.’ They had the privilege of serving all of their fellow countrymen. “We owe them and their families the decency of privacy at their time of grief. The court could have easily ‘carved out’ an exception based upon the fact that the fallen hero was not a ‘public figure.’ They did not. Shame on them. It is a price we pay for freedoms secured by these fallen heroes.” J.S.D. “As much as I despise the group that is besmirching the memory of our fallen soldiers, I value the First Amendment more. “Our freedom to speak our minds is unique in the world. No matter how offensive that speech might be our right to say what we want should be protected at all costs. F.S.D.

If you have been anywhere near any form of media lately I am sure that your have noticed a lot of discussion about the impact that obesity and lack of activity is having on the health of African Americans nationwide. One of the primary results of this has been an increase in the number of diagnosed cases of diabetes, a condition in which the body has trouble using a sugar called glucose for energy and, if left untreated, can result in major health problems. In our community alone there are over 200,000 people who are affected by the disease. There are two types of diabetes: Type 1, in which your body stops making the insulin that is required by your cells to create glucose to burn for energy; and Type 2, in which the body does not produce enough insulin to compensate for less glucose than normal moving into cells.

Covedale: Green before green was cool There’s a popular bumper sticker, promoting Seton High School that reads, “Our World was Green before Green was cool!” The message is testimony to the “green movement” that now consumes every aspect of our lives – from the shampoo we use, to the car we drive. But where we choose to live, perhaps best reflects the trend to live responsibility. Let it be said that, like Seton, Covedale was green before green was cool! Largely developed prior to and shortly after World War II, before the advent of air-conditioning, Covedale homes incorporate design features that are now considered to be eco-friendly. The proper location of windows takes advantage of “passive solar technology” and effectively circulates

air using the science of “stack and cross ventilation.” Ceilings are of reasonable heights and separate rooms for separate functions allows Jim Grawe for “zone heatCommunity ing and cooling” Press guest opportunities. A l s o , columnist Covedale residents have easy access to public transportation. And, sidewalks and “mixed use zoning” places resources and amenities close enough to walk to rather than drive - concepts that the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification program heavily promotes.

Most notably, the green movement has nixed the notion that housing should be a competitive sport – the bigger the house the better. According to Environmental Magazine, “today’s oversized ‘McMansion’ houses are giving us energy anxiety. A growing number of people are downsizing in response to rising energy prices and concern for the environment.” Covedale’s Garden District cottages and the Covedale Park District’s mid-century cape cods are classic examples of today’s housing trend, because they excel at maximizing space. I don’t wish to imply that everyone who lives in Covedale is a fashionmonger, having made a calculated life-style choice. Indeed, many are simply fortunate to be in the right place at the

right time. However, Covedale residents have, seemingly, tapped into a sense of environmental enlightenment. Adults are driving a little less. Adolescents instinctively remember to turn off the lights. And children are taught at a very young age not to keep the water running while brushing their teeth. Of this I am certain. Old ideas are challenging mainstream assumptions about progress and how to achieve “the good life.” And those who live in Covedale are feeling right at home in the modern world! Jim Grawe is the co-founder of the Covedale Neighborhood Association.

Hamilton County recorder explains function of his office Many times I am asked, “What does the county recorder do?” In Ohio, the county recorder keeps and maintains accurate land records that are current, legible and easily accessible. An important aspect of the recorder’s work is to index each document so it may be readily located. Accurate indexing makes it possible for persons searching land records to find the documents necessary to establish a “chain of title” (history of ownership) and ensures that any debts, liens, or encumbrances against the property are evident. Without the work of the county recorder in recording, organizing, and safekeeping all documents in a competent and logical manner, it would be nearly impossible to purchase land and be assured of a clear title or to lend money with land as security.

Wayne Coates Community Press guest columnist

These vital records are utilized by land title examiners, attorneys, historians, genealogists, and the general public. The practice of recording real estate documents is based on law in England which traveled to the New World with the

colonists. Public land registrars were appointed in colonial America to keep accurate records. A system of registration was necessary to prove the right of persons who first made claims to property. In 1787 the Northwest Territory was formed, encompassing all

It takes an informed conscience to make the truest decisions Conscience is vaguely understood today. Many equate it with pragmatism, self-interest, or our strong feelings about something. To others it’s the “little voice within me,” or, “my parent tapes from long ago.” None of these are adequate. Conscience is the process humans go through in discerning right from wrong, good from evil. It enables us to make good moral choices in the many situations we face every day. It determines our integrity. The first step in conscience’s formation is called synderesis. It occurs when we’re still very young. We begin to realize that there is a good and evil in this world, and that good is to be done and evil avoided. Psychologist Jean Piaget calls this stage “moral realism.” The second step in conscience formation is the search for truth. Competing values whisper to us on every side. The complexity of life makes it

very difficult at times to discern truth. If we are honest in our search for truth, we may turn to a variety of sources for guidFather Lou ance (but not Guntzelman slavish adherPerspectives ence): the scriptures, our church, the physical and human sciences, tradition, competent professional advice, etc. We think, pray, discuss and gather information and insights. Our prejudices or partisanship can easily delude us. The third stage in forming our conscience is reaching our actual judgments and convictions we’re convinced are good and right. These judgments take place “in the individual’s most secret core and sanctuary where one is alone with God,” as the Church’s II Vatican Council puts it.

In freedom we make our choices and are so judged by God. Forming and following my conscience does not mean doing what I feel like doing. It does mean that after doing the hard work of discerning what is right and wrong to the best of my ability, I reach a conviction and then follow it. Kenneth Overberg, S.J., writes of an informed conscience: “The human conscience is the individual’s Supreme Court; it’s judgment must be followed.” When Martin Luther reached this final point in his conscience’s deliberations he made his famous statement, “Here I stand, I can do no other.” Joan of Arc chose fidelity to her conscience and paid the ultimate price by being burned at the stake. Thomas More was beheaded by his king for refusing to violate his conscience. It’s most important that our conscience be informed – i.e. a person has studied, reflected, questioned and sought help from

moral and spiritual mentors if necessary. Here are some brief descriptions that have been used over the years to “put a handle” on the other types of consciences we can develop other than the desired informed conscience. Informed: shaped by solid and true education as mentioned above. Also by good moral examples, solid reflection, experience and prayer. Rigid: a conscience that only considers the letter of the law, justice without mercy, unbending righteousness, and a disallowance of our humanity, etc. Scrupulous: an unreasonable, obsessive need to “do things right.” A moral perfectionism which often leads to needless repetition, often combined with the fear or guilt that no matter how well we’ve discerned, we’ve missed something. Erroneous: arises from arrested cognitive development, cultlike indoctrination, or a personal disinterest in a genuine search for

truth that may cramp our style. In criminal history, Ma Barker taught her sons stealing was right, not wrong. Lax: laziness in knowing and performing good behavior or a coziness with evil. A purposeful “just don’t care” attitude toward moral truth, conformism to secular or ambitious dictates, and being devoid of mature insight. Dead: failure to develop an internal sense of guilt or shame. People termed psychopathic or sociopathic usually fall into this category. They lack a sense of right and wrong, empathy or concern for others. One can wonder whether among politicians, bureaucrats, ambitious ecclesiastics, CEOs and money moguls there are also quite a few of what we may call “wimpy consciences.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

With foreclosure rates up, so are condo fees The nation’s housing crisis has not only led to a dramatic drop in home prices, it’s also dealt a blow to a segment of the condominium industry. When a house is foreclosed upon and taken over by a bank, it often sits empty for months before selling for a fraction of its former value. When a condo is taken over by a bank, it not only brings down nearby condo prices, it can adversely affect the entire condominium community. Condominium association fees have skyrocketed to record levels in the past two years. There are two reasons for this. First, many condos have been foreclosed upon leaving them vacant, and second many condo owners are not able to pay the condo fees. Jane Anderson owns one of the 229 homes in the Rolling Meadows Community in Fairfield.

S h e said the h o m e owners association relies on the monthly dues for Howard Ain the upkeep the Hey Howard! of common areas. “If we have 229 units that doesn’t mean 229 owners are actually paying those dues,” said Anderson. “So it’s going to fall on the rest of us that are here (to make up for the deficit).” Last year the condo association had to write off $32,000 in bad debts because of foreclosures. A total of 61 homeowners have failed to pay their dues. Now the rest of the homeowners have to make up for that loss – and have been hit with a 50 percent hike in their dues. “I think 50 percent is just absurd,” said Anderson


“Who can afford a 50 percent increase, and given two weeks notice at that?” Under the condominium bylaws there is no cap to how high the fees can go. Anderson said she’s checked and found the state of Ohio has no cap either. But, she said, the bylaws state the fees should be kept to a reasonable amount – and she said what’s going on now is just not reasonable. Anderson got a petition signed by 90 homeowners asking for a decrease in the dues. “I’ve had a couple of them state to me they’re trying to decide how they’re going to get their meds and make these fees. They say they’ve contacted the association and were told that’s just how it is,” she said. The condo community’s board of directors, made up of homeowners themselves, said a decrease in dues is just not possible. Anderson said the value of her condo has dropped –

but what’s happening here is not unique. One local expert said he’s seeing high delinquencies in communities with condos ranging in price from $50,000 to $100,000.

Go green for St. Patricks’s day and for your health More signs of spring! The maple trees are budding out and my friends, Laura and Oakley Noe, have been tapping their sugar maples for syrup. The dill and cilantro seeds planted last fall look like slender green hairs in the herb garden. Soon we’ll be eating healthy right from our back door. March is nutrition month, and the first recipe uses quinoa, a whole grain, gluten free, loaded with nutrients and fiber. I think

you’ll really like it. And for that St. P a t r i c k ’s Day celebration, try my newest Rita version of Heikenfeld easy soda Rita’s kitchen b r e a d . Also, guru in our backyard Debbie Goulding shares her quinoa salad with lemon dressing recipe.

Debbie Goulding will head up the 35th anniversary celebration, Les Chefs DeCuisine of Greater Cincinnati Scholarship Dinner Fund, for the American Culinary Federation of Greater Cincinnati Sunday, March 27, at The Phoenix. For details, contact Debbie at or Stephen Spyrou at

Debbie is the popular executive chef at Price Hill Kroger, a master gardener and culinary educator. When it comes to tasty food and presentation, Debbie has few equals. She and I worked together on an “eat healthy” event and I asked her to make a whole-grain salad with quinoa since I wanted to introduce the participants to this healthy grain. 1 cup quinoa 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 ⁄2 cup dried apricots, coarsely chopped 2 cups water 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 2 ⁄3 cup Moroccan-spiced lemon dressing, divided 1 cup cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes, halved 1 small red onion, chopped 8 cups baby spinach 1 ⁄4 cup sliced almonds, toasted Toast quinoa in a dry skillet over medium heat, stirring often, until it becomes aromatic and begins to crackle, about five minutes. Transfer to a fine sieve and rinse thoroughly. Even if you don’t toast it, quinoa has to be washed very well to remove a natural, bitter coating, unless you purchase a pre-washed


brand of quinoa. That information will be listed on the package. Quinoa is pronounced either “keenwah” or “kee-NOwah.” Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until golden, about one minute. Add apricots and the quinoa; continue cooking, stirring often, until the quinoa has dried out and turned light golden, three to four minutes. Add water and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, until the quinoa is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 15 to 18 minutes. Meanwhile, make Moroccan-spiced lemon dressing. Transfer the quinoa to a medium bowl and toss with 1 ⁄3 cup of the dressing. Let cool for 10 minutes. Just before serving, add tomatoes and onion to the quinoa; toss to coat. Toss spinach with the remaining 1⁄3 cup dressing in a large bowl. Divide the spinach among four plates. Mound the quinoa salad on the spinach and sprinkle with almonds. Note: Quinoa is available in natural foods sections of supermarkets. Toasting this grain before simmering enhances its flavor. Serves four.

Moroccan-spiced lemon dressing Whisk together: 1

⁄4 cup lemon juice,

2 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt 11⁄2 teaspoons honey 1 ⁄4 teaspoon each: cumin, cinnamon and ginger

Whisk in: 1

⁄4 cup extra-virgin olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.

St. Pat’s soda bread

Got an hour? Bake a loaf of this crusty bread to serve alongside your St. Pat’s Day feast. Self-rising flour already contains leavening, so no need to add baking soda or powder. This is a good recipe for the kids to try their hand at. They’ll be so proud. 3 cups self-rising flour 1 can, 12 oz., room temperature beer OR 2 cups buttermilk Melted butter Optional but good: handful fresh dill, 2 teaspoons dill seeds or sesame, poppy seeds, etc. Put flour in bowl. Make a well. Pour in beer. Mix gently. Don’t overmix. Batter will be lumpy. Pour into sprayed or greased 9-by-5 pan. Pour several tablespoons melted butter or substitute on top. Bake in preheated 375degree oven near top for 55 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve hot with plenty of butter.

Ohmart/Vega Wins Literacy Network spelling bee The Queen City crowned the top corporate spellers on Tuesday, March 1, at the Literacy Network of Greater Cincinnati’s Great American Insurance Group Scripps Spelling Bee for Literacy. After three rounds, Peter Bauer of College Hill, Janie Melvin of Loveland and Michelle Hibbard of Mount Lookout, volunteer spellers for Ohmart/Vega, won the Spelling Bee. They advanced in the championship round by spelling pasticcio correctly and secured the title by correctly spelling chrysanthemum. Second place team mem-

bers from Western & Southern Financial Services, Mike Bechtel, Andy Black of Tri County and Pat Ellis of West Chester correctly spelled mesoseismal but were eliminated after misspelling quinquevir. Last year’s defending champions, Ascendum Solutions, (Deepak Dixit of West Chester, Tracy Bateman of Milford, and Pam Sheppard of Northern Kentucky) came in third place after misspelling tryptophanase. Members of the top three teams each received prize packages including overnight stays at

area hotels and gift certificates to entertainment attractions, and restaurants. Teams of three from 11 local businesses and organizations participated in the old-fashioned spelling bee with all proceeds benefiting LNGC. The theme of the Spelling Bee was “Back to the Beach.” Fifth-Third Bank won the team spirit award for their support and enthusiasm of their three spellers and Great Oaks won for best costume.

Oak Hills High School helps Classic assist charities

Oak Hills High School was among several Tristate schools to have its basketball team participate in the 2010 Bluegrass-Buckeye Charity Holiday Classic, which raised $10,000 for area charities. Organizers of the classic made the check presentation Tuesday, Feb. 1, at Oak Hills High School. The money went to the Ruth

Lyons Children’s Fund, Neediest Kids of All and WSNS Academy. In its nine-year history, the Bluegrass-Buckeye Charity Holiday Classic has donated more than $98,000 to area charities. Oak Hills was one of 10 boys’ high school basketball teams from Ohio and Kentucky who played games in the ninth annual classic

held last December at Northern Kentucky University’s Bank of Kentucky Center. The other Ohio teams were Colerain, Aiken, Princeton and St. Xavier. The Kentucky teams were Dixie Heights, Ryle, Covington Catholic, Mason County and Holmes.

Mount students taking break with Habitat The College of Mount St. Joseph sent 14 students to help families obtain simple, decent and affordable housing during their spring break with Habitat for Humanity in Greenwood, S.C. The students were participants in Habitat’s national alternative break program, Collegiate Challenge. “This is our school’s sixth time traveling during our spring break to help families obtain affordable housing,” says Bridget Kent, Mount junior and president of the Habitat for Humanity club. “We are delighted to be of service to communities.” The group of students and their chaperones traveled to Greenwood, S.C., to

work on the Habitat for Humanity home. The students carpooled to the worksite and stayed at a local church for the duration of their trip. For the past 22 years, more than 182,000 students have spent their school breaks volunteering across the country through this Habitat for Humanity program. “We recognize that these students could have done a number of things during their spring break and are grateful for their support to help families obtain affordable housing,” said Cody Logsdon, Habitat’s manager of youth volunteer engagement at Habitat for Humanity. “The work these stu-

dents will do during their spring break will have a lasting impact in communities across the country.” Habitat’s Collegiate Challenge is one of the many programs Habitat has to engage youth ages 5 to 25 in Habitat’s work. Habitat for Humanity International is an ecumenical Christian ministry that welcomes to its work all people dedicated to the cause of eliminating poverty housing. Since its founding in 1976, Habitat has built, rehabilitated, repaired or improved more than 400,000 houses worldwide, providing simple, decent and affordable shelter for more than 2 million people.

GUMP-HOLT Funeral Home “If it can’t be changed, Change your attitude”

Come and worship in a small casual church that emphasizes the fellowship and mission in the community and globally.

It has been said that the way we think about things makes us what we are. It has also been said that anything we face is never as important as our attitude towards it. The way you think about your job determines whether or not you enjoy your work, how well you do it and even more. It makes the difference that results in success or failure. F.W. Woolworth was given the insignificant job of gathering remnants from all the shelves in his employer’s store and selling them for what he could. The rapidity with which the remnants were sold gave him the idea for a five-and-ten cent store. We all know what happened... The results were a chain of stores across the country and the making of a fortune... “Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.” Couldn’t it be said that you can’t do a poor job if you are interested in what you’re doing? Couldn’t it be said that it is just as true that if you don’t care about your company or its product, you can’t do a really good job, no matter what the extent of your Marilyn Holt education or IQ...

Walk on the 25 acres of woodlands, fish in the 1.25 acre stocked pond, curl up with a book or sit outside by the campfire. Breakfast is served in the spacious gathering room overlooking the pond while birds and squirrels entertain at the feeders. Innkeepers Sally and Dave White promise to tantalize your taste buds with scrumptious dishes like Rooster Egg Bake, Rhode Island Red Stuffed French Toast, Chanticleer Bananas & Ice Cream or Banty Fruit Parfait along with freshly baked breads, juice and coffee. The Inn’s convenient location allows guests to experience all that Adams County has to offer.

There are many Amish shops with baked goods, furniture and cheese. If you are hunting for unique items for yourself or someone special, you can check out the antique shops and art gallery. For outdoorsy adventures within a short drive, you will find Adams Lake Nature Walk, Chaparral Prairie, Edge of Appalachia, Lynx Prairie, Buzzards’ Roost and Serpent Mound. An oasis of sophistication, The Rooster’s Nest was featured in the 2009 Best of Midwest Living. It offers a memorable retreat, a romantic getaway or a mid-week respite. It is a perfect location for smaller business meetings or receptions or for a Mom’s scrap-booking weekend. Gift certificates are available.
