Delhi Township resident Justin Loudermilk, 10, said he was surprised with how much garbage he and his fellow teammates collected at Delhi Park recently. He a member of the West Side Bulldogs 11- and 13-yearold baseball teams, which performed a community service project – along with coaches and parents, about 40 people – by cleaning the park March 30. It was one of three community service projects required by the Cincinnati Reds Community Fund, a sponsor of the teams. “Lots of people litter,” he said. “It makes me feel good to clean up Delhi Park for the com-

munity.” Coach Steve Abbott, 35, Delhi, said they Cincinnati Reds Community Fund provides money each year for the teams which helps them buy uniforms. “They expect us to do service events in return to earn the money and show these kids what it’s like to take care of the community and represent their organization,” he said. Coach Paul Loudermilk, 39, Justin’s father, said, “This is something that we like to do for community service.” He added that it’s important for the players to realize the importance of taking care of the fields where they play baseball. Abbott said that for the boys, its more than just cleaning the park.

“We like to take the opportunity to show these boys how to make a difference and understand the reasoning behind it,” he said. Ryan Daniel, 13, Delhi, said that by cleaning the park they were helping more than the community. “It’s a lot cleaner so we don’t have to worry about the fields when we come to play here,” he said. Jake Abbott, 13, Delhi, the son of coach Abbott, agreed and said he was happy with the results. “It’s been great to clean the fields,” he said. “We don’t want our field to be dirty. It makes me feel good to see how much we’ve done to keep our parks clean.”

Members of the Delhi Skirt Game Committee are practicing their golf swing as they prepare for the 12th annual Kenny Lipps Memorial Golf Outing. Honoring the late Kenny Lipps who was a founder of the Skirt Game and the golf outing, proceeds from golf outing will help fund the Delhi Skirt Game’s Kids, Cops and Firefighters program, which helps needy families buy presents at Christmastime. Golfing begins at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 4, at the Hillview Golf Course, 6954 Wesselman Road. “You can expect a lot of fun and very little golf skills,” Skirt Game co-chairman Clyde Kober said and laughed. Co-chairman Marty Smith said that proceeds from the golf outing are vital to the Kids Cops and Firefighters program. “Without this fundraiser we would not be able to continue,” he said. Smith said the golf outing is less about golf skills and more about helping those in need. “It’s a great way to help your neighbors and support the community,” he said. “We try to help as many people as we can.” The outing costs $75 per See GOLF, Page A2

ship, said Setonsation is the school’s largest fundraiser each year. “It raises money for tuition assistance and scholarships,” she said. “One hundred percent of the proceeds go back to the girls.” This year’s fundraiser, the 17th annual installment, begins at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, April 13, at the school, 3901 Glenway Ave. Thiemann said the evening begins with a Mass, followed by cocktails and dinner.

games of chance and a major award raffle. She and her fellow cochairs began planning for the fundraiser almost immediately after last year’s Setonsation wrapped up. They brainstorm a theme, gather items for the auctions and basket raffles and solicit sponsorships. This year’s theme is “Remember when ... Seton’s Legacy Inspiring the Future.” “We enjoy the hunt,” Thiemann said. “For months you’re hunting and hunting, and then it all comes together.” Some of the auction items and prizes this year include electronics, home and garden supplies, sports memorabilia and Seton and Elder spirit wear. There is even a puppy that will be on the auction block. Joining the volunteer

price is food before the shotgun start, two drink tickets and a steak dinner. There will be cash prizes, split-the-pot, a raffle for a wheel barrel of cheer, a hole-in-one contest to win $1,000 and an ongoing poker game

on all par three holes for a prize. “It’s more about having a good time and helping the kids,” Kober said. For more information about the golf outing, to donate or to spon-

co-chairs this year is Seton senior Kelsey Murphy, who has been conducting a marketing campaign for the event for her senior project. Murphy has created a Setonsation blog – www.setonsation.word press.com – and is promoting the fundraiser through a social media campaign using Facebook and Twitter. “I wanted to capitalize on my passion for helping nonprofits by giving visibility and voice to a worthy cause via social media,” she said. “I am passionate about and believe in Setonsation because proceeds from the event benefit Seton’s Tuition Assistance Fund, which helps young women enjoy the benefits of a Seton education.” Her senior project has confirmed her interest in marketing, and she said she plans to study marketing in college. Christine Kemper, Seton’s major events coordi-

nator, said the school appreciates its Setonsation volunteers at every level – from those who help with planning and organizing, to gift solicitors, data entry, gift gathering party hosts, those who donate and those who work at the event. She said the efforts of Cappel, Hofmeyer and Thiemann go way above simply volunteering. “They put countless hours into getting items that appeal to all ages and interests,” Kemper said. “They put their whole heart, soul and spirit into making this a great event for our school.” Cappel and Thiemann said they have fun helping with the fundraiser and they enjoy interacting with the faculty members and students who visit them when they’re working in the Setonsation room. “We see the students who have benefited and who are here because of this event,” Cappel said.

Elder is a family.” Flowers said alumni know what an honor it is to have attended the school, and the money the walk raises goes toward giving future Panthers the same opportunities he and his fellow alumni enjoyed. “The general scholarship fund allows future generations of young men to enjoy these same great experiences that will remain with them for the rest of their lives,” he said. Bill said the walk has grown each year, and they are on pace to once again grow this year. “It’s a nice event,” he said. “We’ll continue the tradition of giving one step at a time.” Visit www.elderhs.org for more information and to download a registration form.

It winds its way through the streets surrounding Elder and ends in the Pit. Bill said participants are encouraged to hang around after the walk for a family picnic in the Pit. “The kids love being on the football field,” he said. The cost to participate in the walk is $10 per person or $40 for a family of four or more. The registration fee includes a commemorative walk Tshirt, the picnic lunch, games and more.

Members of the Elder High School community will trek through the neighborhood Sunday, April 14, during the fourth annual Elder Family Walk. “While students at Elder, the annual Walk for Others was just one of the many ways in which we were taught to give back to our community and assist those around us,” said Delhi Township resident Matt Flowers, a 1994 Elder graduate who helps organize the family walk. “The Elder Family Walk derived from those teachings and it allows us to carry on the aspects of faith, family and community support that the Elder nation holds so dear.” Elder Alumni Director Brian Bill, a classmate of Flowers who helped establish the event, said each year the 5K walk raises money for the school’s general scholarship fund and an area charity. Proceeds from past walks have been donated to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, The Women’s Connection and Pregnancy Center West. Bill said this year’s beneficiary is Santa Maria Community Services. “The walk was an idea presented by two 1994 grads, Chris Broxterman and Tony Spinney,” Bill said. “They wanted to give back to the Elder community.

Delhi Township Police Lt. Joe Macaluso can add another award to a his list of accolades. The officer was recently named the Law Officer of the Year for Hamilton County by the Hamilton County Council of the American

Legion. “I’m truly humbled and honored by this recognition,” he said. “I know there’s a lot of great police officers in Hamilton County that are well deserving of this award and for me to be selected is truly an honor.” Chambers Hautman Budde American Legion

ment since 1994 as a patrol officer, corporal, sergeant and now as a lieutenant in investigations. But it wasn’t just his police career that was impressive, Bledsoe said, but rather all the time he spends giving back to the community. “He does a lot of volunteer work for people who are less fortunate,” Bledsoe said. According to a letter of recommendation written by Delhi Police Chief Jim Howarth, Macaluso volunteers his time to serve as security for the Delhi Skirt Game; has participated in the Kids Cops n’ Firefighters Christmas program to help families in need; is active in the St. Jude Parish, volunteers for Tender Mercies, an organization which helps homeless people find housing and services; and each year he has a Chili Fest in his neighborhood to raise money for cancer re-

Howarth said it was easy to recommend Macaluso for the award. “No case is too big, or small, for Lt. Macaluso. There is no doubt, in my mind, many citizens, victims, and defendants, are better off today because of him,” Howarth said. “This award is not only an honor for Lt. Macaluso, but an honor for the Delhi Police Department and Delhi Community. We are blessed to have him amongst us.” Macaluso will now be considered for the Law Officer of the Year for the southwestern district of Ohio. The winner of that award should be announced Sunday, April 21.

Two at Seton are National Merit Finalists Two Seton High School seniors – Katarina Gay and Lindsey Mullen – have been name National Merit Finalists. Gay said that her hard work has helped her achieve this goal. “I am ecstatic to be a National Merit Finalist. It is very humbling be included in such an elite group of students,” she said. “I set a goal for myself early on in high school to really prepare for the PSAT in hopes of reaching the National Merit status.” She has her college choices narrowed down to Georgetown University, the University of Notre Dame and Boston College. “Now that I can see the benefits and opportunities that await me as I make a college decision, I know my hard work

has paid off,” she added. Mullen, who will attend either Miami University or Vanderbilt next fall, shares in that excitement. “I feel extremely honored to be able to call myself a National Merit Finalist,” she explained. Principal and CEO of Seton High School Donna Brigger recognizes what a great accomplishment this is for her students. “Seton High School is very proud of each of these young women who are both exceptional scholars,” Brigger said. “What is even more remarkable about Katarina and Lindsey is that they are both very talented young women who excel as service leaders and in other areas, including athletics and fine arts.”

Oak Hills’ Konkoly sets the pace for GMC By Adam Turer presspreps@gmail.com

With track and field season underway, here is a look at the runners, jumpers, sprinters, and vaulters leading their Western Hills Press teams in the 2013 season.

Oak Hills

In his senior season, Kevin Konkoly wants to go out on top. He placed seventh in the state in the 400 last season and is the two-time defending Greater Miami Conference track and field boys athlete of the year. “(Kevin) is one of the top sprinters in the city,” said coach Ben Hageman, who takes over the boys program after seven years of coaching the girls team. Ross Frondorf and Blake Meyer lead a talented group of distance runners. Nate Smith joins Konkoly in the mid-distance sprints. “I feel strongly that we have several kids who have the ability to be at the top of their events in the city this year,” said Hageman. The girls team is led by its strong sprint relay teams. Mackenzie Laumann, Ellie Cunningham, Kamilah Williams, and Kennedy Korn give the Highlanders strong teams in the 4x400 and 4x200 relays. Emma Zimmer and Bayley Feist may work into those groups as the season goes on. The team has a host of freshmen who will likely contribute this season, including Williams, Alyssa McCarthy, and Alexis Conley.

Elder

District champion pole vaulter Joe Ratterman returns to lead the Panthers. Two Elder football players join the team for the first time and will compete in the shotput and discus. The addition of Max Mazza and Greg Owensby should strengthen the Panthers’ throwing group. “Our strength will be in the field events,” said head coach Brian Flaherty. High jumper Jake Upton also returns after qualifying for the regional meet last year. The Panthers will also be solid on the track, led by sprinter and hurdler Andrew Sportsman.

Seton

Mother of Mercy

Thirteen athletes who scored for the Saints varsity team last season are back. That experience and depth will be the key to the team’s 2013 success. “Our strength will be our depth,” said head coach Karen Berndt. “We won’t be amazing at any one event, but we will contribute in all events.” Distance runners Emily Heine and Hannah James, sprinters Haley Rollison and Jessie Woeste, and thrower Morgan Vogel provide senior leadership for a team that is comprised of mostly sophomores. “We have a lot of depth in our sophomore class,” said Berndt. “They are the backbone of our team.”

Distance and field events will be this team’s strengths. Senior Melina Artmayer and junior Emma Hatch lead the distance runners. The field eventers are led by seniors Haley Baker (discus and pole vault) and Kristi O’Conner (high jump). Sprinter Quentaviana Mixon and hurdler Abby Wocher, both juniors, will lead the sprint group. Sophomore newcomers Kellie Leonard (sprints) and Megan Zeinner (distance) will give the Bobcats added depth.

Western Hills

The West Hi boys team is led by captain Leon McCullum. The senior sprinter will compete in the 200 and 400 meter sprints, and the 300 meter hurdles. On the girls side, junior Kaylin Gaines will make an impact in the 400. Other than those two, this is a young squad. The key to this season will be improvement and development, as the Mustangs try to build confidence for the future. According to head coach Peggy Peebles, “the team is young this year but are very hopeful that they will compete.”

La Salle

Just one meet into the season, and the La Salle Lancers have already made headlines. Senior standout Jaleel Hytchye, broke La Salle grad and NFL wide receiver DeVier Posey’s record in the 200-meter dash at the La Salle Legends Meet March 30. Hytchye ran the race in 21.51 seconds, which broke Posey’s mark of 21.78 set in 2008. “He wasn’t expecting to run this fast this early because we haven’t really begun to do any quality work this early in the season,” said head coach Frank Russo. The 200 was Hytchye’s fourth race of the day. He placed first in the 200 and 100 meter races, and anchored the first-place, 4x200 relay. LaSalle won the meet, finishing first out

of 18 teams. Hytchye used the 2012 campaign to garner GCL Runner of the Year recognition. He qualified for state in the 100-and 200meter dash. Junior Tim Bell also returns for coach Frank Russo after placing fifth in the high jump at last spring’s regional meet. Bell was also the GCL champ in the high and long jumps. The Lancers should also score points in field events thanks to return of senior Alex Murray, who was a regional qualifier in the pole vault. Seniors Myron Hampton (400 relay), Jacob McNamara (3,200 meters) and Jonathon Campbell (hurdles) will blend with sophomores Adam Franklin (400, 800 relay), Tyler Harmon (300 hurdles), and Kevin Ferguson (long jump, sprints) to make La Salle a formidable opponent yet again, as the Lancers try to win their 17th GCL title under Russo. The Lancers began the season ranked second in Cincinnati.com’s Division I preseason coaches’ poll.

McAuley

The McAuley Mohawks return under head coach Ron Russo, who’s entering his 25th season, as the program tries to win its third consecutive Girls’ Greater Cincinnati League Championship. Contributing seniors, mixed with underclassmen talent have given rise to high expectations. According to Russo, his team is well represented in almost every event, so scoring should be spread across the 17 events scheduled for every meet. The girls will be led by Taylor Bove, who will anchor sprints, while also trying to pick up where she left off in the discus. Bove will joined by reigning GGCL high-jump champion Jordyn Thiery. Thiery will help in the 400, 800 and 4x800 events. Thiery’s teammates on the 4x800, sophomore McKenzie Pfeifer and junior Kate Olding, will factor into middle/distance events, while sophomore Sydney Lambert can compete in sprints, as well as the 800. Freshman Sydney Kreimer and Natalie Lienhart will look to earn their stripes in the middle/ distance vents, while seniors

Brenna Silver and Claire Tonnis fly up into the sky in the pole vault. Reigning GGCL long jump champion Rebecca Ashton should also spark the Mohawks in the field. As a team, McAuley was district-runner up last year, and are favorites again, ranked No. 2 in Cincinnati.com’s Division I preseason coaches’ poll.

Roger Bacon

The girls of Roger Bacon return in 2013 after Lauren Krebs used her junior season to earn first-team all-GGCL Central honors in the discus, while also garnering honorable mention in the shot. The Lady Spartans could also be strong in the pole vault, with senior Ali Doll set to return. According to coach Michael Braun, 10 of the squad’s 18 runners are returning this spring. Junior Halley Dawson will handle sprints, while senior Annie Spinneweber will help set the pace in distance events. Sophomore Rebecca DeBurger should also add points to the scoreboard in middle/distance events. “The girls’ team is very young, but driven to be successful,” Braun said by email. “Their hard work in practice and teamwork will pay off this season for them.” For the boys, four GCL firstteamers are listed on this year’s roster as the squad defends its GCL Central championship. Junior Dontez Lindsey was recognized in the 400, while Bailey Rolsen was honored in the 1,600. In the field, junior Stewart Barnes was named first-team in the discus. Senior Kevin Anneken was first-team in the pole vault. The Spartans will also benefit from junior Tommy Lawlor running distance events.

St. Xavier

The Bombers will score most of their points in distance events. Senior Jake Grabowski leads the distance group, along with junior Evan Stifel. Senior long and high jumper Trevor Brinkmann returns to lead the field eventers.

I have lived in Delhi since 1961. I have enjoyed Delhi Park for over 50 years. Delhi Park was a private park taken over several years ago by the township. Since then you have seen many changes such as Clearview Lake, floral paradise, walking trails and new football and soccer fields. Along with these changes the park has added eight locations in the township for them to care for. Now the township has transferred the Delhi Senior Center to the park program. This is an added cost to the park budget. Now Delhi Park are for our seniors and our kids. With this levy more safer improvements like playground equipment and fencing for play areas Back in 1979 I was part of

starting the Delhi Skirt Game between DAA and Delhi Fire Department. The park is home to the Skirt Game along with home fields for Seton softball and St. Dominic baseball and football. Many independent teams also use the park. Many other community groups have enjoyed the park for outings, fundraisers, etc. Yes it’s a bad time to ask for more money but for a safer and improved park and to keep a fast response time for your fire department, please support both levies. I believe we have the best police, fire and park departments a community could have.

Store needs fixing

Sometimes one has to wonder about those who are running the store (city). They

spend a couple million dollars to equip and train fire recruits and then the day they graduate and are to become firefighters they tell them they did not plan ahead to have money to pay their salaries so they are going to have to lay them off. They tell us they do not have enough money to provide adequate fire protection so they take some fire companies out of service each day (brown out). On the other hand they place big trash cans in front of our houses that must have cost $50 or $60 each. Don’t they kmow we have been buying our own trash cans for many a year. Decisions like these are kinda scarry sometimes you feel as if the store is broke and really needs fixing.

ages, ability and disability levels. Excellent schools attract the most talented teachers – school district teachers are the best! In the eight years our daughter has been in school, we have had nothing but outstanding experiences with teachers, administrators and staff. Opportunities for students to participate on sports teams, music, art and theater programs, clubs of all sorts are in all the schools and encouraged. If an Oak Hills High School graduate is not well-rounded when he/she graduates, it is not because of lack of opportunities offered. The word excellent can mean many things but is not synonymous with cheap or inexpensive. It is intuitive that excellence costs more than mediocrity, but it can be accomplished frugally. Over the last 11 years, the Oak Hills Local School District has demonstrated they can

achieve academic excellence as well as fiscal responsibility. We have been getting more than we paid for the last 11 years of excellence, with the third lowest cost per student in the county (only Reading and North College Hill are lower – both of these districts have less than one third of the student population of OHLSD). The levy will cover projected shortfalls for the next five years for existing programs only, not extravagances. We need your yes vote to continue our West Side tradition of frugal excellence, community identity, and cohesiveness. Nobody likes to pay more taxes, but the alternative to the already established culture of excellence can only be unacceptable mediocrity. Choose excellence. Vote yes.

Five advantages to Oak Hills education The Oak Hills Board of Education is currently seeking taxpayer approval for a 4.82 mill emergency operating levy on May 7. When approved, the levy is limited to five years and will exTodd Yohey pire in 2018.

Putting that into perspective, that was 10 years before Facebook and the Reds were still playing in Cinergy Field. The last three graduating classes from Oak Hills never experienced a school levy during their time with us. Times have changed since we were in school. New tools and technology make learning more accessible. Some of our students are graduating with an entire semester of college under their belt – unheard of a

Schools in Oak Hills offer five distinct advantages: Outstanding educational value » We have the third lowest school tax rate in Hamilton County. » Our administrative costs are the lowest in the county. » Students have received over $55 million in scholarships over the past five years. The only two school districts in Hamilton County spending less per student than Oak Hills are Reading and North College Hill.

New garbage policy will cause uproar There has been a lot of discussion about the city parking situation recently. However, Cincinnati City Council quietly made another change that will have a much greater impact on city residents. Every city household will receive one 65-gallon cart for their garbage. This is equivalent to about two average trash cans. The city won’t collect anything that isn’t in the Steve Bertke cart. The eveCOMMUNITY PRESS ning before GUEST COLUMNIST the trash collection, you see a large percentage of homes that have much more than two cans on the curb, so for many households this one cart will be very inadequate. For some residents this one container may do the job most of the time, but there are special situations that often occur (holidays, parties, large purchases, etc.). Also, according to the city website, if you are doing some remodeling or clearing out some things from your basement, you must call a private company (at a minimum cost of $100, according to Rumpke). Recently, the Enquirer published an editorial about the litter problem in Cincinnati. The same people who think it’s OK to throw fast food bags out a car window probably won’t hesitate to dump their “excess” garbage in a nearby vacant lot or simply let it accumulate outside their house. The purpose of this is to save money. The city will purchase 90,000 carts at a cost of 4.7 million dollars. They “estimate” that the city will save 2.5 million per year. This is far less than what the city will have to pay to subsidize the day to day operations of the streetcar, after it’s built. I was somewhat sympathetic to the streetcar but if it’s a choice between that and adequate trash removal, the streetcar has to go. Garbage collection is one of the most basic services that the city provides. I believe this will cause a great uproar when all of this goes into effect. However, we may not have to worry about it very long because there is an election this November. For more details go to www.cincinnati-oh.gov.

Honoring a fallen firefighter Brian Schira is not forgotten By Monica Boylson mboylson@communitypress.com

Firefighters, co-workers and people who loved Brian Schira huddled together on a brisk April morning to honor the fallen firefighter. The Western Hills Home Depot, where Schira worked, held an early morning candlelight flag ceremony in front of the store on the fifth anniversary of his death. Schira died after a floor collapsed while he and Capt. Robin Broxterman were fighting a house fire in Colerain Township on April 4, 2008. At the time, Schira was working full-time at Home Depot and part-time at both the Colerain Township and Delhi Township fire departments. “The easiest thing is to try and forget the painful event,” former co-worker and ceremony organizer Kathi Boland said. “It was heartrending. There were people who worked here all over the store crying. But it’s important not to forget because he made the sacrifice for people’s safety and we wanted to honor that.” Each year on April 4 since Schira’s death Home Depot employees retire the flag that waves in front of the store and

replace it with a new one. At the base of the flagpole is a granite stone bearing the inscription: “In memory of Brian Schira, Firefighter and Home Depot Associate, Fallen 4-42008, Always in our Hearts, 3822.” Green Township District Chief Ed Thomas keeps Schira and other fallen firefighters close to his heart. Inside the hat of his dress uniform, tucked into a plastic sleeve, is a photo of Schira and other firefighters who died. “His memory will never fade,” he said, revealing the photographs. “Every time I put on this hat, I say a prayer for those firefighters.” Delhi Township Fire Chief Bill Zoz said he was destined to meet Schira. Zoz was the training officer at Colerain Township and was Schira’s chief at Delhi Township. “I feel very fortunate to have known him,” he said. “He was an upbeat, friendly guy, always had a smile on his face and he was always willing to step up. If you knew Brian, you cannot talk about Brian without a smile growing on your face.” Colerain Township Captain Shawn Stacy said it was important to keep Schira’s memory alive. “He was one of those guys who knew a little bit of everything,” he said. “He was a firefighter’s firefighter.”

Rita shares Jamie Carmody’s chili, corn bread recipes

Jamie Carmody’s white chicken chili

I have made this myself and have used chicken thighs and yellow onion, with good results. The zucchini not only makes the chili appealing, looks-wise, it adds

extra nutrition. Zucchini has vitamin A, found mostly in the skin, for eye health, along with potassium for heart and muscle health.

1 egg mixed with 1 tablespoon water 1 ⁄2pound thinly sliced ham 1 ⁄2pound thinly sliced turkey 1 generous cup shredded cheddar or Swiss cheese

2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, chopped into spoon-sized pieces 2 14.5 oz. cans great northern beans, drained 1 medium white onion, chopped 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 tsp. chili powder 1 tsp. cumin 1 quart chicken broth 1 zucchini, small diced (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Unfold pastry on lightly floured surface. Roll into a 16-inch by 12-inch rectangle. With short side facing you, brush lightly with mustard, then layer meats on bottom half of pastry to within 1 inch of edge. Sprinkle with cheese. Starting at short side, roll up like jelly roll. Place seam side down onto sprayed baking sheet. Tuck ends under to seal. Brush with egg mixture. Bake about 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from baking sheet and cool on rack about 10 minutes before serving.

Sauté onions in a large sauté pan for 3-4 minutes, until softened but not browned. If using, add the zucchini and cook 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic, cook for 1 minute then add the chicken and beans and stir. Add the seasonings, salt and pepper, stir and then add the chicken broth. Simmer over medium heat for 30 minutes. Serve with cornbread.

Get second opinion of if you furnace needs repairing Some area homeowners are questioning if the new furnace they bought was really necessary. They bought it after being told their old furnace was dangerous and needed to be fixed or replaced. Many, like Sally Harrison, spent thousands of dollars Howard on new Ain furnaces. HEY HOWARD! Last December Harrison was getting a routine cleaning for the furnace in her Maineville home. Suddenly, the serviceman told her he found a dangerous crack in the heat exchanger and was shutting down the furnace in the dead of winter. “I was suspicious and I said to him, ‘How do I know that you’re not one of those companies that they reported on the news.’ He said, ‘Because we use a scope to show

you where the crack is,’” Harrison said. Harrison said she was told the crack could lead to the carbon monoxide death of everyone in the house. “He said it was a safety issue so he tagged it. He put a little red tag on it and he turned it off because he said it’s got to be shut down because it’s a safety risk,” she said. The serviceman then checked the other furnace in Harrison’s house, found the same problem and shut it down too. “I think there was a scare tactic used. I think it was convenient that there was a person available within an hour to sell me new ones and they could install them immediately the next day,” Harrison said. A neighbor, Kathy Kilroy, was told all three of the furnaces in her house were hazardous. All three were red tagged and turned off. Kilroy said she ended up replacing all her furnaces as well. “When they tell you

that your life is at stake, you definitely can’t stay in the house without the furnace running so you do something immediately,” Kilroy said. Kilroy said she later learned others in the neighborhood had encountered the same thing. “I know of three other people that have done that. Basically the same company, the same furnace,” she said. Although many homeowners replaced their furnaces right away, some sought out second opinions. Kilroy said about one neighbor, “She had two other companies come in and they both said the furnace was not defective. There were no cracks and their furnace was completely reliable.” I contacted the heating contractor and received this statement: “In the past year our experienced technicians have found approximately 1,000 cracked heat exchangers in customers’ furnaces and have recommended that

Sunset Players having Spring Fling

they replace these parts to prevent unsafe conditions in their homes. Based on industry standards, the presence of abnormal splits, cracks or holes in a heat exchanger required that it be replaced. With time, abnormal cracks could allow harmful gases into the home and it’s our obligation to communicate this risk to the customer” The heating contractor acknowledged to me other HVAC companies don’t always agree with their findings. It says federal regulators are now investigating. Bottom line, if someone tells you your furnace is bad and wants to shut it down, immediately contact Duke Energy or another furnace expert and get a second opinion. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12. Write to him at 12 WKRC-TV, 1906 Highland Ave., Cincinnati 45219.

The second Spring Fling – a fundraiser for The Arts Center at Dunham featuring Barney and the Howlers – will be Saturday, April 13, at the center, 1945 Dunham Way. It is put on by the Sunset Players, the resident drama group at Dunham Arts Center for more than 30 years. This year’s Spring Fling – from 8 p.m.-midnight – will feature music from rock and blues band Barney and the Howlers starting at 8 p.m., and karaoke during the band’s breaks. Ticket price of $15 or two tickets for $25 includes soda, chips, pretzels, a cash wine and beer bar, pizza by the slice, and a cookie sale. “The Arts Center at Dunham will be the perfect venue to support a large crowd and a lot of activity,” says Cheryl Henkel, Spring Fling 2013 event chair. Patrons will also be able to see all of the work that volunteers and the group have put into the building, including the new theater lighting system, new carpeting and
