BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
COMMUNITY INVITED TO FAREWELL PARTY By Kurt Backscheider
Student helping friend’s family By Kurt Backscheider
Price Hill — Matt Strauss said he’s
going to miss working with the people of Price Hill. “I’ve made a lot of friends,” he said. “I have enjoyed getting to know the people and working with them.” Strauss, the director of marketing and neighborhood promotion for Price Hill Will, is leaving the organization. He’s accepted a position with the Madisonville Community Urban Redevelopment Corp., and his last day with Price Hill Will is Wednesday, April 3. A native East Sider, he said the job in Madisonville is closer to his home, his daughter’s school and the neighborhood in which he was raised. When he came to Price Hill Will nine years ago he said he knew a lot about community development, but not much about Price Hill. “I thought that I had never been to Price Hill Chili before because I had always come in through the Golden Fleece entrance,” Strauss said. “I’ve learned quite a bit since then.” He said he’s enjoyed watching the progress the neighborhood has made in recent years, and the people in the community have taught him a lot about Price Hill and the West Side. Collaborating with the dedicated residents, business owners, students and even former residents who work hard for the neighborhood has been great, he said. “They don’t just complain about problems, they dig in themselves and find solutions,” he said. Ken Smith, executive director of Price Hill Will, said Strauss is one of the group’s original two employees and he’s helped build the organization into what it is today. “He is going to be sorely missed by the staff and residents of the community,” Smith said. “We certainly wish him well, however, and know that he will be a great asset to the Madisonville neighborhood.” East Price Hill resident Heather Wigle, who is a longtime volunteer for Price Hill Will and active in the community, said words can’t effectively sum up her feelings about Matt’s work or commitment to Price Hill. “I will have to express it in chocolate,” she said.

Wigle is making all the snacks and treats for a going away party Price Hill Will is throwing for Strauss from 4-6 p.m. Tuesday, April 2, at Corner BLOC Coffee, 3101 Price Ave. Members of the community are welcome to stop by to say goodbye to Strauss and wish him well.
He said he thanks all the people he’s worked with for their support, for the way they welcomed him and the way they made his job of promoting Price Hill easy and enjoyable. “It will be hard to leave, but easy to come back to visit,” Strauss said.

Jordan Schmidt is using her senior project as a way to help the family of a fellow Seton High School student. Schmidt, a Seton senior from Covedale, is focusing on philanthropy for her project and has organized a benefit for the family of her friend and teammate, Sami Pragar. “Sami’s dad, Tom, was diagnosed with cancer this past October,” said Schmidt, who lost a grandfather to cancer last summer. “I felt like it hit home, and I knew I Schmidt could help her family.” A member of Seton’s bowling team, she said she decided to combine her senior project and her favorite sport. To assist the Pragar family with their medical expenses, Schmidt is hosting a bowling benefit called Bowling for TOMorrow at Strike and Spare Western Bowl in Green Township. The fundraiser runs from 1-5 p.m. Sunday, April 7, at the bowling center, 6383 Glenway Ave. The cost is $15 per person, which includes bowling, food, drinks and a T-shirt. Schmidt said she’ll also have basket raffles and a split-the-pot raffle during the event. Seton spokeswoman Christy Schutte said it’s heartwarming to see Schmidt reach out and plan a fundraiser to help another classmate facing a difficult time in her life. “I think it is awesome that young women can have such a strong sense of the spirit of sisterhood, faith and service,” Schutte said. Schmidt said so far she’s raised almost $3,000 from generous donors, and her goal is to raise at least $5,000. “It means a lot to me to be able to help Sami and her family,” she said. “I don’t really see it as a senior project anymore. I see it as an opportunity to help, and I’m really proud to be able to do this.” She said she’s learned a great deal about philanthropy through the experience and she’s grateful to the dozens of mentors who have supported her throughout the project. If anyone deserves it, she said it’s Sami’s dad. “He’s a really supportive dad. He goes to every bowling match he can,” Schmidt said. “He’s just a really nice man.” She said she’ll likely get a little emotional at the benefit, but she looks forward to handing the family a nice check. Her smile gets bigger with every donation she receives, she said. “It just makes me happy,” she said. “You realize something good is going to happen with this.” Anyone interested in attending the fundraiser or making a donation can call Seton at 471-2600 for information.

Wildflower Festival kicks off 7th year By Monica Boylson firstname.lastname@example.org
Spring has sprung and to celebrate the Western Wildlife Corridor is teaming up with the College of Mount St. Joseph to host the seventh annual Wildflower Festival 6-9 p.m. Friday, April 5, at the college gymnasium. Admission is free to the festival and there will be many activities for children and adults to enjoy, Western Wildlife Corridor President Tim Sisson said. “It’s a great opportunity to learn the resources of the region,” he said. “There will be native plants and wildflowers for sale, information about how to be energy efficient, raffles, a painting class, crafts, pottery and activities for kids.” Western Wildlife Corridor artist Sally Anderson will demonstrate how to paint wildflowers and a chipmunk. The class is free, but people should register before the festival. Fundraising chairwoman and Sisson’s sister Rebecca said there will be 45 vendors and

food can be bought in the college’s food court. “This year we’re incorporating more craft vendors,” she said. “There will be natural jewelry, butterfly wing jewelry, silk prints and sculptures.” Tim Sisson said the Western Wildlife Corridor has a good relationship with the college and their teamwork has helped make the event successful. This is the second year they’ve had the event at the College of Mount St. Joseph. “We started out in the Delhi Lodge and then we moved to the senior center and then that became too small, we outgrew it, and we moved over to the
college,” he said. Involved with the Wildflower Festival is the College of Mount St. Joseph’s Environmental Action Committee. “The Environmental Action Committee seeks out and welcomes partnerships, across the campus and within the community, because, most simply, we are all in this together,” committee member Bill Lonneman said. “If we’ve learned anything from both our faith traditions and the ecology movement it is that all life is interconnected and the best way to ensure a thriving environment is to recognize that fact and work together for the common good of all.” In the meantime, Tim Sisson said the Western Wildlife Corridor is hard at work to make sure the Wildflower Festival is a success. “We’re expecting a big crowd,” he said. The group is still accepting vendors. Vendors should have a green or natural product or something nature oriented, Rebecca Sisson said. For more information call (859) 512-1983.
Piano, pastor inspire pair By Monica Boylson email@example.com
Poised on the bench of a 1969 Knabe baby grand piano, Dennis Belisle plays chords of “Memories,” a song he composed with his wife Julie, while she stands at his side and belts out the melody. The sounds bounce through the room and begin to fill their Sayler Park home. The song isn’t the first they’ve written together and it won’t be the last. In fact, the couple recently wrote an Easter program for Eden Chapel United Methodist Church.
The duo wrote six original songs, short skits and will have a light show and costumes for their production of RISEN, a threeact show that highlights Jesus’ path from Palm Sunday to the Crucifixion and Resurrection. In between the acts there will be sermons by Pastor Peter Matthews. “It going to involve the kids choir, adult choir and Sayler Park natives who will be participating,” he said. “We basically put together an entire Easter program in three weeks.” Dennis is the music minister at Eden Chapel and he and Julie work

La Salle cheerleaders perform at Orange Bowl Eight students from McAuley High School and two students from Mother of Mercy High School had the opportunity of a lifetime on New Year’s Day as they performed during halftime of the Orange Bowl. The 10 students are all cheerleaders for the Lancers of La Salle High School and were invited to the Orange Bowl by World Strides Heritage Performance, which coordinates halftime shows for college bowl games. There were a total of 463 young people in the eight-minute routine and they hailed from many places. McAuley senior Jessica Knab met girls from Canada, Virginia, New York, Maryland, and Connecticut, just as example. The rehearsal schedule began on Friday, Dec. 28, at the Fort Lauderdale Convention Center. All-day rehearsals continued on Dec. 29, 30 and 31, as well as the morning of New Year’s Day. The girls had very little free time. The La Salle squad was the only cheer team from Cincinnati to perform in Miami. They danced to four

raphy tips from three famous choreographers: Chris Judd, who choreographed the routine; Travis Wall, who specializes in contemporary dance and jazz;
and Jamal Sims, who is an expert in hip hop. McAuley senior Jessica Knab, the daughter of Jack and Lori Knab of White Oak, said,
“Being in the halftime performance at the Orange Bowl was one of the coolest things I have ever done. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity and it was worth all the work to get there.” Fellow McAuley senior Desi Dick, daughter of Michael and Susanna Dick of Colerain Township, said, “Getting to be part of such a huge production and dancing in front of thousands of people was so surreal. Also, getting to work with and meet all the famous choreographers was amazing!” The head coach of the Lancer cheerleaders is Shauna Yauger Walsh, a McAuley graduate from the class of 1998, who accompanied the cheerleaders to Florida. “They did an amazing job and truly made McAuley, Mercy and La Salle proud, from their sportsmanship, to how hard they worked to learn material, to just be all-around women with character and values that their schools instill in them,” she said. “They made me proud to be their coach, and together we shared an opportunity that only 463 girls were able to experience.”

FIRST SWING AT 2013 BASEBALL
Elder looks to light up base paths
By Tom Skeen
HAMILTON CO. — The boys of summer always get started in the spring, and the same holds true for area preps, who are embarking on the 2013 campaign.
The winning tradition continued last season as the Elder Panthers went 23-9 and made a trip to the Division I regional finals where they lost to eventual state champion and Greater Catholic League rival Moeller. According to coach Mark Thompson – who is entering his 24th season as head coach of the Panthers and was recently inducted into the Ohio High School Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame – the Panthers have posted a winning record for 23 consecutive seasons. 2013 is looking no different. The Panthers return senior Jimmy White, who tied for third in the GCL with 28 RBI last season. Thompson also returns two quality bats in Joe Ramstetter and Ben Kenning. Kenning hit .386 with 17 RBI, five doubles and 21 hits in 62 plate appearances, while his fellow senior hit .278 in 17 at-bats. Ramstetter also returns as the Panthers’ most experienced pitcher. He tossed 25.2 innings in 2012 and posted a 5.60 ERA while going 1-4 and striking out 28. Senior Alex Lind should also provide a presence on the base paths. He reached base at a .550 clip last season in 16 games. The Panthers begin the drive toward a 24th consecutive winning season March 30 when they host Highlands.
“Play like four” will be the motto for La Salle High School as Joe Voegele and company embark on a new season. The motto pays homage to former Lancer Reid Rizzo, who died last summer of cardiomyopathy - a disease where the heart muscle becomes enlarged, thick or rigid and the muscle tissue in the heart is replaced with scar tissue. Rizzo was the starting shortstop at Lake Erie College. “‘Play like four’ will be our theme for this year and as long as I’m at La Salle,” Voegele said. The Lancers return with a nucleus of talent that helped the Lancers go 12-11 last season competing in the GCL South. Senior Brad Burkhart will lead the pitching staff, along with Paul Spaulding and Ken Ruberg. Burkhart — a University of Dayton commit - went 10-1 with a 0.86 ERA last season en route to earning first-team all-GCL recognition. A batting order featuring Tyler Haubner, A.J. Petri, Burkhart, Connor Speed and Bailey Abbatiello should be effective, according to Voegele.

Haubner hit .386 while posting a .462 on-base percentage in 2012. La Salle opens the season at 1 p.m., March 30, at Conner March 30.
Oak Hills will be a team to watch in 2013. After going 17-9 last season and finishing third in the Greater Miami Conference, coach Chuck Laumann returns the core of his team this season including senior and University of Cincinnati commit Jake Richmond. Richmond hit .306 last season with 22 RBI, while going 1-1 with two saves on the mound earning him second-team AllGMC honors. The pitching staff could determine the level of success for the Highlanders. Jayson Essell is the lone pitcher on the roster with more than eight innings of varsity experience. “We are lacking the over-powering arms,” Laumann said. “Nobody on our staff will be able to sit back and throw the ball past anyone. What we lack in velocity, we will make up in location and change of speeds. Our kids will have to pitch and

throw strikes.” What they lack in pitching, Laumann hopes they can make up for with their bats and depth. Joining Richmond is senior and first-team All-GMC selection Alec Steffen, who hit .355 in 2012 with 19 stolen bases. Senior Casey Metzger hit .286 with 15 RBI last season, while junior Ben Laumann – who was also named first-team All-GMC – hit .385 with 20 RBI. “I believe we will be very solid offensively and our overall team speed is better than what is has been in the past,” Laumann said, who is in his19th season at Oak Hills. “… We will be much deeper than we have been in a long time.” The Highlanders start their season at home April 1 against Mason.
It’s shaping up to be an interesting year for St. Xavier and coach Bill Slinger. The Bombers return just two varsity players from their 17-5 team a season ago. Slinger will look to senior Joe
Gellenbeck to do a little bit of everything for his team. The senior is expected to see time and first base, outfield and pitcher. In 2012 Gellenbeck hit .385 with a .440 on-base percentage, 24 RBI and 25 hits in 65 plate appearances. He logged 29.2 innings with a 4-1 record, 21 strikeouts and a 1.89 ERA on the mound. “We are going to ask him to do everything he can,” Slinger said of Gellenbeck. “It’s a shame he can’t play four (positions) at the same time. He did quite well for us last year.” Fellow senior Andy Schad completes the returners for the Bombers. Schad had just 18 atbats last season. There isn’t much depth behind Gellenbeck on the mound. Slinger will look to seniors C.J. Bowman, Mitch Sander and Ryan Shaw – who all played on the junior varsity team last season – to fill-out the rotation. “We are not going to have a strong pitching staff,” Slinger said. “… We have some young kids that will step up but they just have no varsity experience.” Slinger is hoping to see production from sophomore Justin Hilliard and second basemen Owen Hughes. Both played on junior varsity last season, which Slinger believes will
help, but it’s not varsity baseball. “(Justin) is a good ballplayer but he’s young and hasn’t played a varsity game yet for us,” the coach said. “We have some juniors but you just don’t know. We see them in the gym, on artificial turf and they are great guys and they have to work hard and step up for us.”
After coming up one game short of a share of the Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference title in 2012 and graduating only two players from that 2012 roster, 2013 is shaping up well for Western Hills High School. The Mustangs return 10 starters – counting pitchers and position players – and are led by three-year starter Cameron Washington. The senior hit .391 with 25 RBI and 25 stolen bases in 2012. Senior catcher Jordan Saunders is also a three-year starter, who stole 25 bases last season, hit .263 and drove in 15 runs in 57 plate appearances. Senior Levi Wolf, who posted a 5-4 record with 50 strikeouts and a 3.53 ERA last season, leads the Mustangs on the mound. Joining Wolf is fellow threeyear starter Eduardo Rodriquez. He was Holland’s No. 1 starter last season after striking out 67 on his way to a 3.00 ERA. “Western Hills has great team speed,” Holland said. “We have five guys who are capable of 25 stolen bases. We will be solid defensively. We return three starters on the mound (and) we return11guys who saw significant playing time in 2012. Western Hills should compete for a conference title.” The Mustangs’ drive toward the 40th CMAC title beings March 30 against Winton Woods.

Competitive balance proposal on table Gannett News Service
A petition that would have placed a referendum item on the Ohio High School Athletic Association’s May ballot that called for all tournaments to be conducted separately for public schools and non-public schools has been removed from the ballot, OHSAA commissioner Dan Ross announced March 22. In its place, the OHSAA Board of Directors has approved a new competitive balance proposal that could place an addition onto a school’s initial enrollment on a sport-bysport basis based on the number of students on a team’s roster who are from outside that school’s district or designated attendance zone or a socalled multiplier. The new proposal was approved when the OHSAA and Wayne County administrators mutually worked to reach a resolu-
tion on the issue. It had been discussed for quite some time leading up to this weekend. If approved by high school principals in May, the new proposal would require schools to submit their rosters of studentathletes in grades 9-12 to the OHSAA office at a designated time and to further indicate how many of those students are from outside of the school’s district (for public school districts with one high school) or attendance zone (for non-public schools or public school districts with multiple high schools). For non-public schools, it means indicating how many students’ residences are located outside the boundary of the same public school district or zone in which the high school building is physically located. If passed, implementation would be for the 2015-16 school year. Affected sports
KORB MAKES HISTORY
would include football, soccer and girls’ volleyball in the fall, basketball in the winter and baseball and softball in the spring. Voting by high school principals on the 2013 referendum issues will take place between May 1-15. A majority vote is needed for a proposal to be adopted. Proposals that called for all OHSAA tournaments to be separated by public schools and nonpublic schools that were generated through the petition process were soundly defeated in 1978 and 1993. In the spring of 2011 and 2012, the OHSAA membership narrowly defeated two similar competitive balance formulas that would have factored in school boundaries (how schools obtain students), socioeconomics (students on the free lunch program) and tradition (periods of success in tournaments on a sport-by-sport basis) into enrollment.

Long term care planning: seeking dignity beyond dollars Health care and long-term care costs are retirement wild cards. The longer we live, the more we pay for health care. We all hope to remain healthy and be care givers, not receivers as we age. And, if we become Larry care givers, Blundred we hope to be COMMUNITY PRESS able to fulfill GUEST COLUMNIST our loved ones’ needs. The truth: we don’t know what will happen because of two persistent unknowns – our longevity and the state of our health later in life. This is where long term care (LTC) and financial planning intersect. We cannot address one without considering the other. LTC often starts in the home. The care needed, and costs associated with prenursing home care can pose the greatest challenges and potential costs. We all want to provide loved ones with a dignity that goes beyond dollars. We want our loved ones to be cared for in their homes – where they are most comfortable and have their best memories – or in adult day care, where they will likely spend more time
than in a nursing home. Retirees’ top two concerns are maintaining purchasing power of investments and rising health care costs because health care costs typically triple inflation costs. Usually, when we reach “pre-retirement” (ages 55 to 65) is usually when we reassess retirement plans and begin to answer the following questions: Where shall we live during retirement? Is our financial portfolio invested and staged to produce income after retirement? Have we planned for health care needs, costs and long term care protection? Are estate plans and survivor needs addressed? Seventy percent of us over age 65 will require prolonged care at some point. That’s why planning for long term health care should be part of an overall financial plan, not a separate decision. To begin the conversation with loved ones, ask the following questions: » Do you, your spouse and family know what to do if someone needed care tomorrow? » Who is responsible to care for you or your parents if long term health care is needed? » Finally, do loved ones know how to use your assets

In recognition of Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month in March, Lighthouse Youth Services is reaching out to the community to increase awareness for the long-term benefits of early intervention. While most people Terric realize that Betts COMMUNITY PRESS the first three years of a GUEST COLUMNIST child’s development are fundamentally important, many are unaware that early intervention for infants and toddlers with developmental delays or disabilities is vital to improving their lifelong outcomes. Lighthouse works in partnership with Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services to serve as the front door to early intervention, providing comprehensive services for families and their children up to age 3, so they start preschool healthy and ready learn. Sometimes the initial hurdle for parents and caregivers is identifying if there is a developmental delay and where to go to find out. We encourage parents and caregivers who have any concerns to contact us to schedule an evaluation and possibly create an early inter-
for your care? In 2000, about 6 percent of senior citizens (over age 65) spent at least one night in a nursing home the previous two years. By 2010, that comparable figure rose close to 9 percent, while over the same period, the percentage of seniors who received some type of skilled home health care rose from 9 to 13 percent. Until recent years, the only strategies available to address LTC costs were family and self- insurance – meaning that the family nest egg was at risk to cover these expenses. Today, life insurance companies have created new hybrid products that merge life insurance or retirement annuities with what is called a LTC “balance” to be drawn upon as needed over a specific period of time. There are pluses and minuses to each strategy, but understanding our options helps us make more informed decisions – and will help us address the risk of outliving our money.

The independent financial services firm at www.kehoe-financial.com celebrates its 31st anniversary this year.
Understanding the 13th Station Now that Easter Week is upon us, growing up the one Station Of The Cross that was always confusing to me was the 13th Station, wherein they took the body of Jesus from the cross and laid him in his Mother Mary’s lap. Larry Why after all Schmolt the suffering COMMUNITY PRESS Mary had GUEST COLUMNIST endured that day would they add to her misery by laying the body of her dead son in her lap. It was not until recently someone had given me an article that appeared in the newspaper more than 100 years ago, it was regarding my grandfather who had been killed in a train accident near the Ohio-Indiana border. Since there were no roads along the railroad right away they had to send a train out to pick up the others that were injured and his body. On their way back to the city they stopped the train along River Road where he and my grandmother lived and carried the body over and gave it to my grandmother. I thought this was awful strange, but then I started to do some reading about people who died during this period of time and came to find out
there was no undertakers to take care of the dead. The only person called an undertaker was a carpenter because he was the one who made a wooden box for burial. It was not until the time of the Civil War that they started to embalm bodies due to the fact that dead soldiers had to be transferred long distances to get them to their home. Most other burials were carried out by the families and, as we see in the Bible, the women who were friends of Mary took and cleaned the bodies and wrapped them in clean white cloths to be placed in a tomb. In some cases of those dying even up to the beginning of the 19th century this practice continued. Sometimes the dead person was wrapped in cloth and laid out in the home. I read of some cases wherein the body would be laid in the living room using the dining room table. if it was hot they would place buckets of ice under the table to keep the body cool. Cincinnati Mortuary School was one of the first schools in the country to be established which taught the embalming of bodies and the reconstruction of bodies as we know today. Larry Schmolt lives in Price Hill. He is a retired Cincinnati firefighter.

High school students learn of ethics, leadership
The West Point Societies of Cincinnati and Dayton hosted its first Leadership & Ethics Seminar at Miami University Voice of America Learning Center in West Chester. The seminar provided selected sophomore and junior students and faculty members from high schools in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, the opportunity to experience some of the leadership and ethics training developed for cadets at the US Military Academy at West Point. Nearly 100 students and 50 faculty members from 50 local high schools attended the event. This seminar, focusing on the same principles and values taught at West Point, was facilitated by West Point graduates from the Greater Cincinnati area. After a short workshop to understand and establish each participant’s value and beliefs “framework,” small groups of students discussed several situational case studies in which they might find themselves. These cases enabled them to explore their personal values within an ethical decision-making model – helping students develop and internalize a personal code of conduct that will make them stronger leaders. Ethics and values-based leadership are often cited as making the difference between successful leaders and those who fail. West Point is often considered the premier leadership institution in the world. West Point seeks to “educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets, so that each graduate is a commissioned leader of character.” Cadets are taught, practice and live in an environment that develops this leadership character over a four-year period.

The seminar also featured two guest speakers. In the morning, the students heard from Cincinnati City Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld. The closing session was provided by Dr. Victor Garcia, professor of surgery and pediatrics director, Trauma Services, at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. Both Sittenfeld and Garcia, who have been involved in youth leadership initiatives and leading change, spoke about the role of personal values in addressing ethical leadership challenges they had experienced. All participants received letters of recognition and encouragement from their state governors, as well as from U.S. Sen. Rob Portman and U.S. Rep. Brad Wenstrup.

Fruited gelatin terrine, pound cake make Easter table special As I write this column on the first day of spring, it’s snowing outside! Usually by this time we have our potatoes, early greens and radishes planted. We have to go along with the Rita whims of Heikenfeld Mother Nature. I RITA’S KITCHEN hope each of you has a memorable and fun Easter. As I tell you every holiday, remember those who may be alone or who can’t get out. Send a card, make a call or invite them to your table to share your abundant blessings.
Rita’s fruited gelatin terrine
I like to make mine in a terrine, which looks like a skinny, longer loaf pan. A loaf pan works well, too. This is an elegant, easy addition to an Easter dinner. If you want, you can do all individual small bowls, molds, etc. For a smaller batch, just divide the recipe in half.
4 cups mixed fruit (I use strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries.) 4 packages unflavored gelatin (four 1⁄4-oz envelopes) 4 cups white grape juice,
at a time, beating until well mixed. Start adding flour alternately with milk mixture. You should start and end with flour. Blend in lemon and vanilla. Pour into a large Bundt or angel food pan, which has been greased with Crisco and floured. Bake at 325 degrees for about 1 hour and 25 minutes. Keep oven closed while baking. Remove from pan immediately and cool on wire rack.
rose wine, etc. 1 cup sugar 2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice
Arrange fruit in loaf pan. Set aside. Sprinkle gelatin over grape juice and let sit a few minutes to soften and “bloom.” Whisk gently and the gelatin should be incorporated, but not dissolved, into the juice. Pour into pan, and add sugar and lemon juice. Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer and whisk until sugar and gelatin are dissolved. Remove from heat and cool mixture, stirring occasionally, just to room temperature. Mixture should still be pourable. Slowly and gently pour enough mixture over fruit, just enough to cover nicely. This will set the fruit in a bit of gelatin so it doesn’t float. Chill until firm, about an hour. Pour remaining mixture over fruit (if it gels while it’s sitting, warm up a bit to melt, but let cool before you pour on). To unmold, dip pan in a larger pan of hot water for a few seconds to loosen. Invert a serving plate over terrine and invert terrine onto plate.
Tip from Rita’s kitchen
Rita’s fruited gelatin terrine is an easy, fruity Easter dessert. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD
light-colored prepared gelatin dessert, cook as package directs and follow instructions for layering fruit. You won’t need to add juice, sugar or lemon juice.
Ruth Roberson’s special pound cake
Remember the request for a buttery pound cake like Whole Foods? I’m still working on a clone, but wanted to share Ruth’s pound cake recipe. Ruth, a Kentucky reader, told me: “I have a recipe that everyone loves. I use it for strawberry shortcake, a quick breakfast, or just as a great cake to have any-
Tips from Rita’s kitchen
Lower carb: Use a sugar substitute and sugar-free juice. Even easier: Use a
time. It is really easy to make and I have shared the recipe with many people. It’s a very old recipe, but it is delicious and very moist. Most of the remarks I get from people are that they love the little crunch on top and then the moistness that is inside.” 3 cups sugar 1 ⁄2cup Crisco
2 sticks margarine, softened ⁄4teaspoon salt 5 large eggs, room temperature, if possible 5 oz. can evaporated milk mixed with water to make 1 cup 3 cups all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon lemon extract 1 teaspoon vanilla 1
Beat together sugar, Crisco, margarine and salt. Then add eggs, one
Ruth said you could substitute 1 tablespoon vanilla butter and nut flavor for the lemon and vanilla. This may make it taste more like Whole Foods cake.

Checks terms, conditions of those ‘free samples’ You see them all the time, ads for products that promise to send you a so-called “free sample,” but a local woman says she’ll be very careful before responHoward ding to Ain such ads HEY HOWARD! in the future. Diane Meador, of Loveland, got an e-mail for a weight loss product. It was supposed to cost her just a few dollars, but it ended up costing her a lot more. “I saw a little corner ad for a free sample for $1.89, and there were no strings attached,” Meador said.

get the free sample, thinking it seemed like a good deal. “I put it on my bank debt credit card. It came in like 10 days. It said nothing about signing up for a membership, even like trying something for three months and if you don’t like it you can cancel. Nothing like that,” she said. However, soon after the money was taken from her bank account, Meador got charged more than $79 for the product by an overseas firm, complete with an international transaction charge. She immediately disputed the charges with her bank, got a provisional credit and thought everything was fine. Then, two weeks later, her bank account was hit with another charge, this time for more than $82. “We disputed that too and found it was attached to this same company, so that’s when we canceled my debit card,” Meador said. Soon the bank received letters claiming Meador had authorized the charges when she signed up for the “free sample.” As a result, the bank sent Meador a letter saying it is not permitted to be involved further in her attempts to get her money back. “They basically said that’s proof enough for them, and they took the mon-

ey back out of my account,” Meador said. Meador got a new debit card and says she didn’t realize a debit card doesn’t give you the same protections you get if you use a credit card. “I didn’t realize that. I guess the bank debit MasterCard isn’t considered the same, but I did not know that,” Meador said. The company in question tells me there were terms and conditions of the free trial offer Meador either didn’t see or didn’t get. As a result, she says she didn’t know she had just 10 days to cancel if she didn’t like the product. The company says its records show a second shipment of the product was sent to her, but Meador said she never received it – all she got was money taken from her bank account. The company says it’s investigating and I’ve told Meador to file complaints with the Ohio Attorney General and the Better Business Bureau. Bottom line, beware of free trial offers because they often come with terms and conditions you may not want to accept. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

Church thief sentenced to three years in prison Gannett News Service
Thomas Martin was doing well as the business manager of three church parishes in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. He and his family lived in a nice home; he had a floral business on the side. He could afford nice
things, he admitted Monday, because over eight years, he stole $353,000 Martin from the three parishes. “I simply made one bad decision after another,” Martin told Visiting
Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Dennis Helmick, who sent Martin to prison for three years. Martin apologized to the congregants of St. John the Evangelist in Deer Park, Holy Family in East Price Hill and St. John the Baptist in Harrison, saying he “betrayed (them) in a most disgraceful way.” Martin, 48, of Mason admitted last month to three counts of theft that could have earned him a maximum prison sentence of six years. Instead, Helmick sentenced him to three years in prison followed by five years of proba-
tion. “You can’t steal $350,000 from the church and somehow think you’re not going to prison,” Assistant Prosecutor Andy Berghausen said, after Martin requested he be given probation instead of prison. Berghausen said Martin stole $124,407 from the Harrison parish, $201,138 from the Deer Park parish and $27,673 from Holy Family. Martin stole the money on a weekly, if not a daily basis, Berghausen said, and covered his crimes by making false entries in the ledgers of the parishes.

NEW 2013 DODGE
A few weeks ago the community lost a great west sider when Arthur H. Beinkemper, Jr. (known as Art to everyone) passed away. Art dedicated his life to his beloved wife, Billie, his two children Beth and Brad and his grandchildren. Art also dedicated a signiﬁcant part of his life to the prosperity of Cincinnatus Savings and Loan. Art began his career with Cincinnatus in January, 1952 as a part time teller, eventually rising to the office of President and CEO. It was under Art’s stewardship that Cincinnatus grew and prospered, and this year Cincinnatus enjoys its 128th birthday. Anyone who met Art knew him to be a very optimistic person. To Art, the glass was never empty, it wasn’t even half full, it was always over ﬂowing! No matter what kind of day Art was having, he was always cheerful, positive and took the time to ask how you were doing. Art was genuinely interested in you as a person. When Art was battling some recent serious health issues, he never lost that ever present optimism. Art, we are all going to miss you! On behalf of the Board of Directors, Current and Former Employees of Cincinnatus Savings and Loan, Thank You Art and God Bless.
REMAIN at HOME!
Arthur H. Beinkemper, JR. 1936-2013
