Local schools look for ways to make up snow days By Jennie Key

Local schools are looking for ways to make up for lost time. A hard winter resulted in most schools in the area to exceed the five alloted calamity days given to schools each year. On March 26, Ohio Gov. John Kasich signed into law Amended Substitute House Bill 416, which re-

quires the Ohio Department of Education to waive up to four additional days a school is closed due to a public calamity, such as hazardous weather conditions, for the 2013-2014 school year. This applies to a school district, STEM school, or chartered nonpublic school, as long as the district or school has invoked its contingency plan to make up five unwaived ca-

lamity days. That will help districts with more than 10 days off, but doesn’t help most schools in Southwest Ohio. They have to make up five unwaived calamity days before the additional days given by legislators can be used. Local schools are getting their plans in place.

Cincinnati Public Schools

Cincinnati Public Schools missed a total of eight school days because of inclement weather, spokeswoman Janet Walsh said. One day was made up Feb.10 by converting a professional development day, when students originally were scheduled off, to a school day, she said. The district made up the reSee DAYS, Page A2

The May 6 primary election is almost here, and voters in Hamilton County will have the opportunity to begin voting this month to nominate party candidates for statewide and judicial offices to appear on the ballot Nov. 4. Early voting begins in Hamilton County Tuesday, April 1, and early votes may be cast in person or by mail. In addition to candidates, the ballot will have statewide and countywide issues. Party candidates for state central and county central committees will also be elected. Sally Krisel, deputy director of the Hamilton County Board of Elections, says the voter registration deadline for this primary is Monday, April 7, and the board office at 824 Broadway will remain open until 9 p.m. to accept registration forms.

Absentee applications are also available on the website. Forms require an actual signature, so they may be downloaded and completed; they cannot be completed online, Krisel said. Voters must first choose which ballot they want.

Daly, West Fork to be resurfaced By Jennie Key jkey@communitypress.comds

Some residents yearning for spring will see a sure sign in their neighborhoods in coming days. Orange barrels, the official flower of road crews everwhere will begin blooming along Daly and West Fork roads as crews begin doing concrete work as part of a $1.1 million resurfacing project by the Hamilton County Engineer’s Office. The project will resurface just more than three miles of county roads in Cincinnati and Springfield, Green, Columbia and Symmes town-

Streets included in the project are: Bilamy Court from Winton Road to the dead end; Camargo Road from the Cincinnati corporation line to the Madeira corporation line; Daly Road from North Bend Road to the Cincinnati corporation line; Rich Road from Fallis Road to Brentmour, and West Fork Road from North Bend Road to Gaines Road. Hamilton County Engineer Ted Hubbard said the county has several resurfacing project planned. For example Race Road is on the

list, as is a section of Pippin Road. “We have a lot of streets that need attention,” Hubbard said. “But it costs money. We are only able to do so much at a time. He’d like to work on the northern portion of Daly; he says Meredith is in great need and there are also other sections of Winton Road that need work. The problem is money. “These projects are outrageously expensive,” Hubbard said. “But we have a lot of streets that need attention this year and we have to do what we can so we don’t fall too far behind.” This project is being paid

She said even though Oak Hills had to call several snow days when the temperatures were bitterly cold, Mercy doesn’t have as many students who walk to school or ride the bus so they were able to have class on those days. She said the school was granted permission to offer three online learning days in which teachers post assignments for students on the school’s Blackboard and make themselves available to students via email. Mercy called six snow days, but the sixth was used as an online learning day, she said.

Readin’, Ritin’, and Ritalin

t has been called by many as “Teacher’s Little Helper.” I’m referring to the popular drug Ritalin which is widely prescribed to “treat” the condition ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), commonly referred to as simply “hyperactivity.” The number of children given this drug has risen by hundreds of percent in the last ten years or so, much to the delight of the shareholders of Ciba-Geigy, the drug’s manufacturer. The US and Canada are leading the parade in Ritalin use, while European countries are far down the list. Maybe children across the ocean are different? Could it be marketing? Please read on. It seems as if every child today is being labelled with ADHD. It seems to be a catch-all name given to kids who don’t fit into someone’s definition of how a child “should” behave. The criteria used to make this diagnosis fits almost every


child encountered in practice. According to Dr. Peter Breggin in his book The War on Children, ADHD tends to be a middle class diagnosis. So let’s look at the factors that would label a child as having ADHD; 1. Often fidgets and squirms in his/ her seat. 2. Has difficulty remaining seated when required. 3. Is easily distracted. 4. Often blurts out answers to questions before they have been completed. 5. Has difficulty awaiting his/her turn during games. 6 . H a s d i ff i c u l t y f o l l ow i n g instructions. 7. Jumps from one thing to another. 8. Often talks excessively. 9. Interrupts others. 10. Often loses things. 11. Does not seem to listen. 12. Has difficulty playing quietly. If your child displays at least 8 of these

criteria, he is a candidate for the ADHD diagnosis. (All of a sudden I’m very concerned about myself and most of my friends and colleagues!). These criteria sound like a normal, healthy, exuberant, bored, child. Many authorities feel that these children are actually quite gifted and are very right-brained, i.e., creative. These children function with two speeds; hyperdrive and collapse. There is no inbetween. They are also highly visual and non-sequential processors. In other words, they learn by pictures in a non-traditional manner. These children, many feel, are “scanners”; they scan life and the world around them in the same manner as they scan a computer screen. Some authorities also feel that they are a product of our fast-paced, overstimulated culture. To that end, I must applaud Waldorf schools and their founder, Rudolf Steiner, who frown on the use of computers in their teaching methods. To make my point clearer, allow me to ask you the question, “what if Einstein and Edison were on Ritalin?” If they were born today, they would surely have been labelled ADHD; both had been expelled from school for disruptive behavior. Most parents do not realize that there are no laboratory tests for ADHD; that this “diagnosis” is made purely on observation and is most often initiated by a teacher who is having difficulty controlling the behavior of a certain child. I am emphatic when I stress that this is NOT an attack

on teachers; rather it is an observation. It is interesting to note that “good” teachers have very few ADHD children in their class while others have quite a few. These children need a different teaching method, which is difficult as schools demand obedience and conformity in most cases. Rather than use the term ADHD, Dr. Breggin, is his studies on this phenomenon, called it DADD - Dad Attention Deficit Disorder. He feels that a lack of parental attention and lack of discipline very often leads to the diagnosis of ADHD. I agree. Other health professionals feel ADHD is caused by a lack of certain minerals and neurochemicals in the body. The late Dr. Robert Mendelson, M.D., one of the most respected pediatricians in North America, and a self-proclaimed medical “heretic” once told me that it is our perception which may be at fault. “Is it the child who is hyperactive,” he asked, “or is it that the average earthling is no longer excited about life?” Interesting thought! To treat this “affliction” children are placed on the drug Ritalin, classed as a Class II narcotic. To bring this into perspective, Class I narcotics are those substances for which there is no legitimate use. Substances that even a licenced physician can’t prescribe, e.g., heroin, etc. Class II are those substances that are also addictive but have limited medical value, e.g., Ritalin, Cocaine, etc. Class III and IV are

ISSUE 10 - DELHI TOWNSHIP POLICE LEVY What it’s about: This is a 2.49-mill, continuing tax levy for the operation of the Delhi Township Police Department. What it would do: Allow the police department to maintain its existing level of service with 29 police officers. How things are now: The department’s roughly $4 million annual budget is derived solely from levy funds and is not supported by the township’s general fund. The previous police levy, a five-year levy passed in 2005, is now in its ninth year as a result of township frugality. If a new levy is not implemented, the police fund will run out of money by April 2016. How much it would cost: If passed, the levy would generate about $1.16 annually for the police department. It would cost the owner of a home worth $100,000 an additional $87 per year. Arguments for it: Trustee Cheryl Sieve said without an increase in revenue through a new levy the township would have to deficit spend and support the police department with general fund money, which the township cannot afford. Proponents also site how the township has made the previous five-year levy last nine years by being fiscally conservative. The police department also needs to maintain its staffing levels because crime in the township has increased each year since 2005. Arguments against it: The levy will raise taxes for township residents. Who’s for it: Delhi Township Trustees voted unanimously to place the levy on the ballot. Who’s against it: There is no organized opposition to the police levy at this time. Website for more information:

substances which have the potential for abuse, such as Valium and other barbiturates. Most parents may not realize that Ritalin is highly addictive and is placed in the same class as Cocaine and opium. Ritalin is a psychotropic drug; it alters behavior and a child’s perception of the world. The purpose of this drug is to force the child to obey! I feel it robs children of their individuality and I wonder if we are not turning our children into robots! This drug is so popular that toddlers are the new market! As a matter of fact, other drug companies, in their quest for a share of the market, are now suggesting that children be placed on Prozac. This is not OK! There have been few conclusive research studies done on the long-term effects of Ritalin. However, Johnson and Stewart found that: 83% of children had trouble with frequent lying 60% of children were still overactive and rebellious 59% had contact with police 52% were destructive 34% threatened to kill their parents 15% contemplated suicide Definitely not popular side-effects! There has to be a better way! Chiropractic doctors have been successfully helping ADHD children for years. We often find that an interference to the function of the nervous system, caused

by a vertebral subluxation in the spine, is at the heart of the matter. These vertebral subluxations are often the result of a difficult birth and interfere with normal nervous system function. A vertebral subluxation is an irritant to the nervous system. It is similar to having a pebble placed in your shoe that you can’t get rid of! Chiropractic care is directed at correcting these subluxations thereby making the child’s nervous system function normally. It’s that simple. If your child has been labelled ADHD or is in the process of being labelled, my suggestion would be to consult a pediatric chiropractor without delay.

Maury’s gets some star-studded business By Cliff Radel

Some stars take top honors in their field and head straight for Disney World. Not Cate Blanchett. After winning the Best Actress Oscar for “Blue Jasmine,” she’s going to Maury’s Tiny Cove in Cheviot. Blanchett is slated to shoot a scene for the 1952 love story “Carol” at the venerable steakhouse April 1. “That’s April Fool’s Day,” Maury’s owner, Matt Huesman, said. “But it’s no joke. “We’ll be closed the entire day,” he added. “They’ll be shooting what amounts to the first date between Cate Blanchett’s character, Carol, and Rooney Mara’s character, Therese.” Carol, a married New Yorker, is entering the initial stages of a relationship with Therese, a department store clerk. Having Maury’s play the part of a 1950s restaurant amounts to a neat bit of typecasting. The steakhouse is as famous for its cuisine as it is for its classic decor. Maury’s red and black Naugahyde booths, wood paneling and subdued lighting remain relatively unchanged, even after a recent makeover, since Maury’s opened in 1949. “They didn’t want to use the front room of the restaurant,” Huesman noted. “That’s where we did a lot of our makeover with lights and pressedtin paneling. “So they’re shooting in the rear room or what some people call the red room.” That spot features

won’t be a problem.” What will be a challenge, he admitted, is if he has to serve the stars. “That could be a bit nerve-wracking,” Huesman said. No doubt. It’s not every day an Oscar winner comes to Cheviot to make a movie at Maury’s.

roomy booths capable of being moved to accommodate the cameras, lights, cables and crew needed to make a movie. Maury’s has been in the running for months to play a part in “Carol.” Members of the Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky Film Commission scouted the place in October. Several upper echelon staffers from the film’s technical side paid a visit in January. As it turns out, the Tiny Cove has been on the film commission’s short list for years. “They knew all about us and our decor,” Huesman said. “They had been here before for another movie.” George Clooney considered shooting a restaurant scene at Maury’s for his “Ides of March” movie in 2011. “But the crew felt our ceilings were too low to get the shots they wanted,” Huesman said. Apparently, the crew of “Carol” thinks otherwise. “The film’s crew members went nuts over the place,” Huesman said as he stood by one of the restaurant’s booths. They focused on table 11, the first booth to the left of a small set of steps. That’s where Blanchett and Mara are going to sit. “I have a feeling a lot of people are going to be requesting table 11,” Huesman said. They also may be asking for the “Carol” special. In the movie’s restaurant scene, Blanchett’s character orders “the creamed spinach over poached eggs. And a dry martini. With an olive.” Mara’s character orders the same. Martinis are on Maury’s menu. Scrambled eggs and creamed spinach are not. “But we can whip them up,” Huesman said. “That

Is It the Fountain of Youth for Aging Minds?


Pharmacist of the Year Makes Memory Discovery of a Lifetime ‘America’s Pharmacist,’ Dr. Gene Steiner, finds what he and his patients have been looking for – a real memory pill!

“I had such marvelous results with this memory pill that I not only started recommending it to my customers, I even shared it with other physicians!”

Pharmacy Best-Seller

For years, pharmacists told disappointed patients that memory loss was inevitable. A new, drug-free cognitive formula may help improve mind, mood, and memory in as little as 30 days.

PHOENIX,ARIZONA — If Pharmacist of theYear, Dr. Gene Steiner, had a nickel for every time someone leaned over the counter and whispered, “Do you have anything that can improve my memory,” he would be a rich man today. It’s a question he’s heard countless times in his 45-year career. He has seen families torn apart by the anguish of memory loss and mental decline, a silent condition that threatens the independent lifestyle that seniors hold so dearly. In his years-long search for a drug or nutrient that could slow mental decline, he finally found the answer, a natural, drug-free compound that helps aging brains ‘think and react,’ younger.

Tired Brains Snap Awake!

Pharmacist of the Year, Dr. Gene Steiner, PharmD, was so impressed with his newfound memory powers that he recommended the patented, prescription-free memory formula to his pharmacy patients with great success.

“It helps tired, forgetful brains to ‘snap awake,” says Dr. Steiner. Before Dr. Steiner recommended it to customers, he tried it first. “Within a few days, I can tell you without reservation that my memory became crystal clear!” “Speaking for pharmacists everywhere, we finally have something that we can recommend that is safe and effective.And you don’t need a prescription either!”

“It became the best-selling brain health product in my pharmacy and customers were returning to thank me for introducing them to it.” Users like Selwyn Howell* agree. He credits the memory compound with bolstering his confidence. “It helped me speak out more than I used to. I am growing more confident every day.” Carey S.* reports, “I feel so much more focused and with the new energy I’m now ready to tackle the things I’ve been putting off for years!” Elizabeth K.* of Rochester, New York experienced a night-and-day difference in her mind and memory.

Without Slatten, young Oak Hills softball team preaches defense By Tom Skeen

Despite many coaches feeling frustration with the weather, softball season is finally here. Take a closer look at how the teams in the Delhi Press and Price Hill Press are looking in 2014:

Mother of Mercy

Gina Carmosino takes over on the bench for the Bobcats after coaching the junior varsity team last season. The Bobcats return seven of their nine starters after going 317 last season. Seniors Corey Specht, Savanah Wagner (2B), Hannah Jackson and Maddie Bell headline the roster, along with Jessica Richter. Other returning starters include seniors Lauren Briede, Hannah Siefert and Erin Helmers. “The team has a lot of enthusiasm going into this season,” Carmosino said. “They have also been very eager to learn. The upperclassmen have really taken it upon themselves to be leaders, which is going to be a major factor on the field this season.” Mercy opens the season at Oak Hills March 29.

Oak Hills

Coming off its first Greater Miami Conference title in school history, a different philosophy is in place for 2014. Pitcher Lauren Slatten is now at the University of Texas and was one of seven seniors to graduate from last season’s squad. Junior Brooke Shad moves from the infield to the mound. It’s a move she’s known was coming for some time now. “She’s been training hard since last year because she knew she was going to move into the spot,” coach Jackie Cornelius-Bedel said. “She got a

Seton High School’s Chelsea Zang, pitches for the Saints during their sectional win over Turpin last season. Zang posted a 1.07 ERA with 84 strikeouts in 91.2 innings last season.TONY TRIBBLE/FOR THE COMMUNITY PRESS

new pitching coach and she’s really working hard. My catcher (junior Bethani Drew) does a really nice job with her, so the two of them together really prepared themselves for opening day.” With the change on the mound comes a change on defense. With Slatten piling up 711 strikeouts the past two seasons, the defense hasn’t been forced to field their positions regularly. That will change this season. “We have a really good defense behind (Shad), although again, they’re young,” Cornelius-Bedel said. “Our goal this season is when they put the ball

in play, to make the plays. Our defense hasn’t had to make a lot of plays the last couple of years, so we’ve put more pressure on our defense this year.” The Lady Highlanders’ roster features seven freshmen or sophomores, including outfielder Taylor Wilp, who returns as the team’s top hitter after swinging it at a .405 clip last season with 14 RBI, producing a team-leading six doubles and being third on the team with 30 hits en route to second-team AllGMC honors. Senior Sammy Sagers – a Thomas More commit – also earned second-team all-confer-

ence honors after hitting .351 with 13 RBI. Some newcomers to keep an eye on are sophomore Val Hudepohl and junior first baseman Bekah Finn. Oak Hills opens the season at home March 29 against Mercy.


Christina Martini takes over as coach of the Saints after spending the last nine seasons as coach at St. Ursula Academy. Five Saints return from last season’s district final team, led by senior Chelsea Zang, who will control the top spot on the pitching mound this season af-

ter hurling 91.2 innings last season en route to an 8-4 record and an impressive 1.07 ERA. Junior Abby Lamping is back after hitting .338 last season with 19 RBI and a team-leading 13 doubles. Other returners include junior Lindsey Hubbard, senior Alyssa Lyons and Hannah Wegman. Junior centerfielder Jalee Conner and sophomore second baseman Jessica Beeler are two players to keep your eye on. “These girls seem to have a real desire to learn the strategy of the game,” Martini said. “Physically, I love how aggressive the girls are at the plate; their offense is powerful.” Seton opens the 2014 season March 31 at home against St. Henry (Kentucky).

Western Hills

Amanda Carpenter enters her first season as coach of the Lady Mustangs, who are coming off a 3-12 campaign in 2013. West High opens its season April 7 at home against Taft. No other information was available before press deadline.

Experience on Elder’s side as the Panthers volley into tennis season By Tom Skeen

The nets are pulled tight as the high school tennis season is upon us. Here’s a look at how the teams of the Delhi Press and Price Hill Press are shaping up:


Glenn Wauligman returns four of his top five players from a season ago. Seniors Andrew Cole and Luke Groene along with junior Drew Lovell are back to occupy the three singles posi-

tions after going a combined 38-35 last season. Sophomore Bryce Wauligman – Glenn’s son – moves up from second doubles to No. 1 doubles where he will get help from a bevy of players including junior Nick Rolfes and/or sophomores Ryan Sullivan and Antonio Dilonardo. The Panthers begin the season March 31 at home against Summit Country Day.

La Salle

Mike Holman enters is 14th season as coach of the Lancers.

La Salle is set to open the season March 31 at home against Talawanda. No other information was available before press deadline.

Oak Hills

Jeremy Miller enters his first season as coach of the Highlanders and is looking to snap a streak of five consecutive losing seasons. Senior Oscar Ryland returns, along with fellow senior Taylor Brannon and sophomore Daniel Cirkovic. Miller makes his Oak Hills coaching debut April 1 at home against Taylor.

St. Xavier

Elder’ Luke Groene slaps a return over the net during during his match at the GCTCA Coaches Classic at Fairfield High School last season. Groene will control the No. 2 singles position for the Panthers in 2014.TOM SKEEN/COMMUNITY PRESS

Russ King returns for his 31st year coaching at the Bombers and boasts an astounding career record of 739-96. Sophomore Andrew Niehaus takes over the first singles position after going unbeaten at No. 3 singles last season. The team of Jay Shanahan and Matt Momper – a Bellarmine University signee - will occupy the top doubles team. Shanahan had success at No. 2 doubles last season going 7-1 with then partner Elliot Bostick. Junior Connor Aronoff is likely to see time in singles action, while Neil Bostick will contribute as well. “They are young and really ready (to) learn and improve,” King said. “I look forward to working with them.” The Bombers begin the quest for their 36th consecutive Greater Catholic League title April 1 at home against Milford.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Police levy in voters’ collective interests

On May 6, the Delhi Township Police will ask for your support for a levy. When deciding on the support of this levy, I believe something can be learned from looking to recent past. A cursory review shows the current levy, passed in 2005 to fund the department for five years, was stretched to nine years. From this measurement, it appears the department has been a good steward of our taxes. Looking forward, I would predict that conservative fiscal approach to continue. It is also predictable, based on objective measures, that the number of offenses the department will be responding to will likely

rise. As a police officer in another community, I can attest to an increased number of criminal offenses, seemingly in part, the result of the well-documented heroin usage. As a member of a county-wide police association, I am cognizant of the encroachment of criminal activities to Delhi Township’s borders and within its streets. As a Delhi Township resident, my concern is for the staffing and support of the department and its ability to respond to the township’s law enforcement issues. For those reasons, I believe support of this levy is in our collective interest.

Oak Hills Boosters bullying district’s children

It is absurd for the Oak Hills Boosters to request that the Little Highlanders stop using the “OH” logo, and to say that the logo deserves the same protections any business would apply to its logo or trademark. In case Boosters Vice President Jim Frondorf and Oak Hills Superintendent Todd Yohey have forgotten, they work in a public school district, not a private business. Must we remind them the Oak Hills District is funded and supported through property taxes paid by the residents living in the district. Residents who have children who play

football and cheerlead for the Little Highlanders, which is a part of the district. These children are being prejudiced against by not allowing them to continue to use the “OH” logo. What a fine example the school board, boosters and Superintendent Yohey are setting for the children involved in this dispute. It is typical of those running our district wanting to exercise total control when it comes to having their way. There must be a loud outcry from the residents of the district to stop this bully status and support the Little Highlanders in their quest.

Why garrison the globe?

CH@TROOM March 26 question Do you think economic sanctions against Russian banks and officials will prevent Russia from annexing the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine? Why or why not? “Unlike most of my classmates I excelled in history. Many of the boys complained saying, ‘Why do we have to learn so much about something that will do us no good in real life?’ The teacher replied, ‘Those who fail to learn history are doomed to repeat it’ and she wasn’t referring to our grades. “The scene in present-day Europe is chillingly similar to the 1930s when Hitler was implementing plans to take over any nation he pleased. I cannot believe our president, and especially European leaders, are so feckless. “All the world needs to complete this pathetic scenario is for one of those leaders to wave a piece of paper proclaiming it guarantees ‘Peace in our time.’ Putin, like Hitler, will only respond to force.”


“It's a done deal. This area was Russian for centuries till 55 years ago. The majority of people have spoken. This area has been fought over time and time again. Read history about the Crimean wars. “We have more pressing problems in Syria and Africa where blood is shed each day.”


“No i think that is a done deal and only a real and credible show of strength will deter Mr. Putin.”


“Sanctions are only punitive and will not stop the new Russian Czar from doing what he wants. He thinks he is the new savior of the Russian Federation. “However, sanctions may hurt both the Russian economy and their standing in the international community. That is about all anyone (except maybe the sabre rattler, McCain) can hope to accomplish. It may also give Putin pause to think what his next move may do. “Right now the Obama administration and the Euro zone nations are doing what is proper and prudent. The last thing this country or Western Europe needs is another Iron Curtain going up. But the right wing probably would love to get back to the good old days when we knew who the enemy really was.”


THIS WEEK’S QUESTION There is a campaign both locally and nationally to make baseball’s Opening Day an official holiday. Do you think this is a good idea? Why or why not? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to with Ch@troom in the subject line.



Our esteemed Congressman has done it again. Last week, he wrote in this space “Obama’s Military Cuts Endanger America.” In his cries of doom, he listed virtually every country in the world that he felt Paul could atAshworth COMMUNITY PRESS tack us yet he never GUEST COLUMNIST mentioned why any country would want to commit suicide on such a grand scale. Surely he knows, as those countries he mentioned know, that we have those 50-plus nuclear submarines silently cruising the oceans just waiting for a retaliatory strike order. I think we all understand the necessity of having a strong military, but there’s an interesting report available, “The Department of Defense Priorities And

Choices For Fiscal Year 2014.” Instead of reading Republican talking points, I wish our congressman would have read this report: here are a few interesting points: “In FY2014, the Department continued to shift to a smaller, leaner force that is agile, flexible, and ready to deploy quickly. In keeping with the 2012 defense strategic guidance, DoD is no longer sizing U.S. forces for prolonged, large-scale stability operations. The DoD continued its planned drawdown of ground forces, reducing force structure in areas of lower risk to sustain other, higher priority capabilities. “A high quality all volunteer force continues to be the foundation of our military. “But the cost of military personnel has grown at an unsustainable rate over the last decade. Including wartime funding, military personnel costs have nearly

doubled since 2001, or about 35 percent above inflation, while the number of full time military personnel, including activated reserves, increased by less than 2 percent during the same time period. “Trimming force structure that is excess to strategic requirements will free up funds to ensure a ready, modernized, and well equipped military. The end strength cuts discussed here are driven by the defense strategy, which deemphasizes large, protracted, and manpower intensive stability operations.” Reading the full report and it becomes increasingly apparent that we can no longer afford to be the policemen of the world. I would like our congressman to answer a couple questions that have long bothered me: Why do we maintain military bases in virtually all the countries on planet earth? Why do we have some

73,000 troops in Germany where they have their own military capable of defending themselves? Why does he feel we need 11 Aircraft Carriers, and four more in construction, when all those other countries have just ONE between them? Actually, England sold that one to China because the Brits said they couldn’t afford it. And, according to the DoD Web site, we have 761 active military bases abroad. Why do we find it necessary to garrison the globe while preaching the only way to balance the Federal budget is to reduce social programs of the vast majority of the families (taxpayers) here at home? Mr. Congressman, isn’t it time to start looking at the defense budget in more realistic terms where proposed spending cuts are not viewed as doomsday scenarios? Paul Ashworth is a resident of Delhi Township.

Rising sewer rates present financial challenges Hamilton County Auditor Dusty Rhodes’ thought-provoking Feb 16 Cincinnati Enquirer column “Hamilton County is on the Road to Ruin” highlights valid fiscal concerns that warrant further comment. Dusty chronicles the unabated growth of property taxes as the vehicle for subsidizing an array of public services and investment along with the burden placed on residents and rateChris Monzel payers from mandatCOMMUNITY PRESS ed projects such as GUEST COLUMNIST capital improvements to the Municipal Sewer District as well as restoration of iconic buildings like Union Terminal and replacement of the Brent Spence Bridge I don’t agree with Dusty’s dire assessment that our future mirrors Detroit, however, I do agree that rising Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) rates present growing financial challenges to Hamilton County property owners while also threatening businesses and the jobs they provide for our communities. This is a monumental issue that deserves more discussion in our community.

As commission president, I pushed for the hiring of a county utility supervisor to monitor the impact of MSD’s day-to-day operations and spending on costs and rates. The county oversight team is heavily involved in overseeing all phases of work associated with Hamilton County and the city of Cincinnati’s Consent Decree with the U.S. and Ohio Environmental Protection Agencies. This decree mandates a massive upgrade of the county’s sewer system. The oversight team’s involvement was instrumental in cutting MSD’s proposed $230 million operating budget to $210 million, along with reducing a $290 million proposed capital budget to $211 million for 2014. This thorough vetting saved $98 million for MSD ratepayers. Auditor Rhodes pointed out that MSD rates have risen at a rate of nearly 11 percent per year since 2000. MSD ratepayers should know, however, that the average yearly MSD rate increase for the past three years has dropped to about 6.5 percent – not

great, but much lower since the county began aggressively monitoring MSD spending. We are starting to make progress toward the goal of reducing MSD spending while still meeting the mandates of the Consent Decree. I have worked diligently to have Cincinnati City Council repeal its responsible bidder, local hire and local preference ordinances. Construction industry experts believe that over the long term, these ordinances could add 15 percent to the cost of completing the construction associated with the Consent Decree. On a projected $3 billion cost to finish Hamilton County’s sewer system, 15 percent represents an unnecessary $450 million bill for ratepayers. That is why I am willing to take this dispute to court to determine whether Hamilton County or the City of Cincinnati sets the procurement policies for MSD. The system’s ratepayers need to know that the Hamilton County Commission is ready to protect their hardearned paychecks and provide a competitive environment to retain and attract business in the coming years. Chris Monzel is president of the Hamilton County Commission.

Cast members rehearse one of the numbers for "Shrek - The Musical" being performed by the Seton Elder Performaing Arts Series. THANKS TO TAYLOR HIRTH

Seton Elder Performing Arts Series presents



et ready for some ogresized family fun! This isn’t your average fairy tale, but that’s OK, because this isn’t your average cast. The Seton Elder Performing Arts Series present for the first time, “Shrek the Musical.” While the Oscar-winning DreamWorks film may have started all of the hype, “Shrek the Musical” brings everyone’s favorite oversized ogre, donkey, dragon, princess-turned-ogre, and more than 50 townspeople and fairy tale misfits to life on stage. This talented cast includes 65 actors and actresses and 10 stage crew members. This is the first time that this has been performed by the Seton Elder Performing Arts Series. It was decided last year that “Shrek the Musical” was going to be this year’s performance. Seton Music Director Maribeth Samoya had seen Shrek the Musical twice at the Aronoff when it was in town, and knew that as soon as the rights were released it would be a must. “I loved it and talked it up so much,” Samoya said. “We listened to the recording and read the script and everyone was on board.” In addition to Samoya, the codirectors also include Elder Choral Director Dave Allen and Elder assistant Choral Director Jordan Shad. “This show will definitely be enjoyed by all ages,” Seton Music Department assistant Mary Sunderhaus said. “Children will love all the characters, but the adults will understand all the humor. The acting, singing and dancing is really wonderful.” “We are also having two character lunches for the little ones – Snacks with Shrek – that will take place before the Saturday and Sunday matinée shows,” Sunderhaus said. “Memorabilia, lunch, drinks and desserts with the characters from the show will make this a special event children will love to be a part of. Tickets are sold separately from the musical.”

First and Finest

Since this is the first time “Shrek the Musical” has been performed by the Seton Elder Performing Arts Series, the cast

March 2014: Seton and Elder students rehearse for "Shrek - The Musical." THANKS TO TAYLOR HIRTH

has been committed to making it spectacular. “We all want this show to reach its absolute potential and then some,” said Feldman Seton senior Olivia Wall, who is playing the part of Momma Bear. “This cast has put everything they have into it from the beginning. Performing ‘Shrek’ for the first time is a little daunting because there is nothing to base it off of other than the Broadway show,” she added. “But our directors have done an excellent job and I’m so exQuitter cited for audiences to see our debut.” Having to cancel some rehearsals due the harsh winter weather may have been a slight obstacle, but the actors each had their own personal challenges they’ve had to work on so that they could perform at their best. For sophomore Anthony Ciarla, who plays Shrek, his personal challenge has been with the music and singing. “I sing as a baritone and Shrek is a tenor, so I have had to keep attempting to hit the really high notes,” Ciarla said. “I’ve

worked with a vocal coach that has been helping me to train my voice since the very beginning. All of the directors constantly push me to just go for Hirth those notes as well, and that has helped me tremendously.” Elder senior Jay Quitter said that playing Donkey, a character who was so funny in the movie, is challenging because he wants to deliver the comedy that the audience will expect but also make the character his own. Wall “Having Mr. Allen, Ms. Samoya and Ms. Shad as mentors has been a complete privilege for me as an actor and as a student.” Elder junior Nicholas Gibbs plays the part of Peter Pan and is in the Fairytale Chorus. He is looking forward to the audiences reactions. “It’s an entertaining story that any child would love to watch on stage, and there are many jokes in this play that the adults in the audience will get some great laughs at,” Gibbs said. Another thing that is sure to

catch the audience’s attention is Lord Farquaad, played by Elder senior Sean Feldman. “Since the character’s short height is essential to the plot Kaimann I’ve had to learn how to perform the whole show while on my knees. All of my movements have been well thought out because if I’m not careful the illusion will be ruined,” Feldman said. “The character is absolutely hysterical! I still catch myself chuckling at my own lines and lyrics.” There is talent and passion in all Watkins areas that go into making this production a success, said Seton junior Cierra Watkins, who plays the part of Dragon. “It’s something new and we’ve definitely made the absolute best of it,” she said. “We have had awesome support and have an amazing orchestra, choreographers, directors and stage crew.”


It’s been 45 years since a group of teachers from Seton and Elder came together to form the Eight ‘Clock Series,

now known as the Seton Elder Performing Arts Series. The brainchild of Allen, this unique partnership offers the student performers much more than just a theatrical experience. These young actors and actresses, who affectionately nicknamed themselves “Selder” – a blend of Seton and Elder – have gained immeasurable acting skills as well as built lifelong friendships. “Because only Seton and Elder students are involved in these performances, there is a sense of family when joining the cast,” said Seton senior Taylor Hirth, who plays the part of a Duloc Greeter in the musical. Quitter has seen many benefits of this partnership. “We are two separate schools, but when it comes to these performances, we are one cast,” he said. “I think that says a lot about our unique program. It is where I have met most of my friends and it has played a huge role in how I’ve grown in my high school career.” Seton junior Kalie Kaimann, who plays the part of Fiona, is enjoying being a part of the Performing Arts Series for the second year. “I love my ‘Selder’ family. I think the partnership and team work that we share is amazing,” Kaimann said. “We put our many strong talents together and make magic on stage.” “The show is going to be an instant classic,” Gibbs said. “Make sure you get your tickets for this unforgettable musical!” “Shrek the Musical” performances are: Wednesday, April 9, 7 p.m. (tickets are $8 and general admission seating.), Friday, April 11, and Saturday, April 12, 7 p.m.; Saturday matinee, April 12, 2 p.m., and Sunday matinee, April 13, 3 p.m. (tickets for Thursday-Sunday are $10 and seats are reserved.)

Lentil and rice dish perfect for Lent I’ve already gone through one batch of my homemade yogurt and have another batch “cultivating” on my counter. We eat yogurt year ‘round, but especially during Lent, when it tops my vegetarian lentils and rice. The yogurt recipe is too long to include here, but you’ll find it, with stepby-step photos, at The Rita recipe I’m Heikenfeld sharing today RITA’S KITCHEN may be an unusual recipe to some of you. Called mujadarah, it’s a dish we grew up with that evokes fond memories of my mom wrapping her jar of homemade yogurt in towels to keep it warm enough to inoculate.

Mujadarah/Lentils with rice and cumin Go to taste on seasonings. Some people like to stir in some of the cooked onions into the lentils and rice.

3 very large yellow onions ⁄3 cup olive oil 1 cup whole brown lentils 11⁄2 cups long grain rice 5 cups water 1 to 2 teaspoons cumin Salt and pepper to taste Plain yogurt or tzatziki (cucumber and yogurt salad) Chopped greens (optional) Sprinkle of cayenne pepper (optional) 1

Slice onions and cook, covered, over medium heat, in oil until caramelized/dark brown. You’ll start out with a lot but they will cook down considerably. What happens is the onions’ natural sugars

sausage, sprinkle with salt and pepper, add 1⁄3 onions and cheese, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Repeat layers two more times, ending with cheese. Whisk eggs, milk, garlic powder and mustard. Cook on low 6-8 hours or high 4-5.

From readers’ kitchens

Tzatziki or plain yogurt can top this spiced lentil-and-rice dish.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

come to the surface and create a caramelization, making them taste sweet. Combine lentils, 1 teaspoon cumin, salt and water in pan. Cover, bring to boil and cook over medium heat, covered, until lentils are half cooked, about 10 minutes. Add rice and simmer, covered, until rice is cooked, about 20 minutes. Water should be absorbed but, if not, drain off. Adjust seasonings. To serve, put onions over mujadarah and garnish with yogurt and greens.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

If using brown rice, check package directions for liquid and time needed. Lentils help lower cholesterol, stabilize blood sugar and contain protein and B vitamins.

Crockpot breakfast egg and sausage casserole

No dry mustard? Leave it out. Go lightly when you sprinkle salt and pepper on. Turn this on before bed and it will be ready to eat Easter morning. I like to thaw the hash browns a bit, but the Eastern Hills reader who shared the original recipe said he “just pours them straight from the bag.” Here’s my adaptation. 2 pounds frozen shredded hash browns 1 pound sausage, cooked and crumbled 1 bunch green onions, finely sliced, both white and green parts 1 pound shredded cheese 12 eggs 1 ⁄3 cup milk 1 ⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder 1 ⁄2 teaspoon dry mustard Salt and pepper

Spray 6-quart slow cooker/ crockpot. Layer 1⁄3 potatoes on bottom, sprinkle with salt and pepper and top with 1⁄3

Bridgetown Finer Meats turkey salad. I enjoy chatting with Richard Hoehn and Brian Brogran about their famous turkey salad. For years, readers have asked me for a clone. And for years, I get the same answer: a chuckled “no.” I respect that this recipe is proprietary but a while back, a reader wanted it to send to her daughter in the Navy, hoping the chef there could recreate what was her favorite turkey salad from home. Bridgetown softened up and gave me ingredients, but no amounts. They sell a whopping 300 pounds of it a week and make it several times so it’s always at the peak of freshness. I sent the information to Embeth B., who then sent it to her daughter. The reply I got was this: “With your help, a recipe for a ‘close second’ was created and our daughter in the Navy says to her ‘it tastes like something from home’!” Of course it’s not the real deal, but close enough for her daughter to enjoy a taste of the West Side a long way from home.

Great Parks taking part in Taking Root Great Parks has pledged to support Taking Root, which plans to plant 2million trees by 2020, by planting 60,000 trees by 2016. The Taking Root campaign was created by a group of environmental partners to build awareness about replanting in the region’s forests. Because of invasive pests such as the emerald ash borer (EAB) and Asian long-horned beetle (ALB), as well as nonnative plants such as bush honeysuckle, the forests are in peril. It is important that steps be taken now to make sure the region has a healthy forest system for generations to come. Community involvement is needed to help Great Parks achieve its goal. Volunteers are invited to help with several reforestation projects taking place throughout Great Parks this year. Opportunities this spring include: » Take Root With Great Parks - Saturday, April 5, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Mitchell Memorial Forest (Tall Pines picnic area), 5401 Zion Road, Cleves. Volunteers will plant, stake and protect 1,000 tree seedlings. Lunch and drinks will be provided by event co-sponsor REI. Volunteers of all ages are welcome. » Reforest Miami Whitewater Forest - Saturday, April 12, 9 a.m.-4 p.m, Miami Whitewater Forest (Big Sycamore shelter), 9001 Mt. Hope RoadCrosby. Volunteers will plant more than 1,200 trees to create a buffer that will reduce erosion and protect Dry Fork Creek. This project is made possible in part by funding from event cosponsor Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District. Volunteers of all ages are welcome. Online registration is open for these opportunities at, then click on “one-time volunteer.” Learn about Taking Root at conservation/taking-root.

States investigating student loan complaints A multi-state investigation is now underway into the practices of the student loan servicing firm SLM Corp., also known as Sallie Mae. This comes after numerous complaints have been filed with state attorneys general around the Howard country. Ain ComHEY HOWARD! plaints are coming from people like Eric Wooddell of Martinsville, Ohio. “Sallie Mae is taking money specified for certain accounts (in this case the ones with higher interest rates) and posting the money how they wish (to lower interest loans),” Woodell wrote. Wooddell said he has recorded phone con-

versations with the company and has bank statements showing the problem. “Over $1,300 hasn’t even been posted to my account where I have bank records showing I paid the amount. They are blaming a system change while millions of students are being impacted and paying thousands more in interest payments,” he said. I’ve told Wooddell, as I’m telling everyone else with such problems, to file a complaint with their state attorney general. Ohio officials there say they are not permitted to say whether they are part of the multistate investigation being led by the Illinois Attorney General. Ohio has received 57 complaints about Sallie Mae since 2012. Nationwide, the federal Consumer Financial

Protection Bureau reports almost half the 3,800 student loan servicer complaints it’s received are against Sallie Mae. It says the most common complaints concern inaccurate payment processing and an inability to modify loans. One complaint on file with the Ohio Attorney General reads, “On the 18th of January, I ‘paid off’ one of the loans, but they have no record of it! Key Bank has repeatedly sent them verification, and they refuse to acknowledge that they ‘received the electronically sent payment’! I am beyond what to do!” Another complaint filed with the Ohio Attorney General reads, “Sallie Mae continues to change the way they have done business which changes the original agreement when the loan was made. Further

investigation is needed into the Sallie Mae practices.” Congress created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in 2010 as part of the DoddFrank law in an effort to watch over banks and student loans. The law encourages state attorneys general to take more of an interest in complaints against student lenders. Sallie Mae is the nation’s largest student loan provider and had set aside $70 million to help resolve enforcement actions by the Department of Justice and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

‘Dolly,’ ‘Sunshine Boys’ highlight Landmark summer schedule

Cincinnati Landmark Productions knows how to put on great summer shows. For the summer, they have put together a fourshow package at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts. Be sure to check out the seating chart at note performance times: Thursday 7:30 pm.; Friday 8 p.m.; Saturday 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sunday, 2 p.m.

‘Hello Dolly! May 22-June 1

Classic musical numbers include “Put On Your Sunday Clothes,” “Ribbons Down My Back,” “Before the Parade Passes By,” “Elegance,” “It Only Takes A Moment” and “So Long, Dearie.”

‘The Sunshine Boys’ June 19-June 29

The story focuses on characters Al Lewis and Willy Clark, a one-time vaudevillian team known as “Lewis and Clark” who, over the course of 40-odd years, not only grew to hate each other but never spoke to each other offstage throughout the final year of their act.

The stubborn Clark, who was not ready for retirement, resented the wiser Lewis for breaking up the act when he opted to leave show business. It is now 1972 and CBS is inviting the team to reunite for a special on the history of comedy, with the pair representing the vaudeville era at its best. Clark is convinced by his nephew Ben to revive one of the old routines one last time. Much of the humour is derived from efforts to get the two cantankerous actors into the same room for a rehearsal, their differences of opinion once they reunite, and their shenanigans on the actual broadcast.

‘Footloose’ July 24-Aug. 3

One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold


more than 15 million copies) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, “Footloose” celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind. This show is produced by the national award-winning Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre.

‘The Will Rogers Follies’ Aug. 21-Aug. 31 Will Rogers was a unique American who, though he died almost 60 years ago, remains a beloved figure remembered for his humor, his wisdom, and his just plain common sense. At the heart of his populist philosophy was his most famous statement: “I never met a man I didn’t like.” Rogers became the biggest, most popular, and highest paid star of every existing medium of his time – stage, screen, radio, newspapers, and public appearances. In fact, it is no ex-

aggeration to say that he was the greatest star this country has ever produced.
