Cabinet Supreme Savings and Loan murderer eligible for parole

By Kurt Backscheider

DELHI TWP. — It’s been nearly 45 years since three men committed one of the most heinous crimes in the history of Delhi Township. On Sept. 24, 1969, Watterson Johnson, Raymond Kassow and John Leigh entered the Cabinet Supreme Savings and Loan on Delhi Road, and shot four women to death while robbing the bank. Delhi Township Police Chief Jim Howarth said the men forced bank teller Lillian De-

wald and three customers, Helen Huebner and sisters Luella and Henrietta Stitzel, into the vault and shot the innocent victims until they ran out of bullets. The men escaped with a mere $275. “Most people of a certain age in Delhi remember it,” Howarth said. “It’s still a common topic in Delhi to this day.” Kassow was arrested at his home the same day as the crime and Johnson and Leigh were caught a few days later near Gallup, N.M. In a statement to the FBI,

Leigh admitted the three had agreed to leave no witnesses alive. “It was a tragedy,” Howarth said. “It scarred the community Howarth forever.” The three men were tried in separate trials that ran simultaneously in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court, and the juries convicted each man of four counts of murder and sentenced them each to the death penalty.

Howarth said when capital punishment was abolished in Ohio in 1972 their death sentences were commuted to life in prison, making them eligible for parole. Both Johnson and Leigh have since died in prison, but Howarth said Kassow, 69, is eligible for parole this year and his hearing before the Ohio Parole Board is scheduled for July 30. Howarth has been encouraging residents and community members to write the parole board to request Kassow’s parole be denied. “Raymond Kassow should

remain behind bars,” he said. Miami Heights resident Dan Huebner, whose mother, Helen, was one of the victims, said his family relives the crime whenever Kassow is up for parole, but they always make the drive to Columbus to make the plea for him to stay in prison. They’re planning to speak to the parole board in late June. “I don’t think he has paid enough,” Huebner said. Huebner’s late father, Joe, was waiting for his mother outside the savings and loan the See PAROLE, Page A2

launched a paver campaign to help raise the $70,000 still needed for the park. “We are offering bricks for sale, and also sponsorships,” Bruns said. “We hope to have good support, not only from Price Hill residents, but also from people who grew up here, whose families have roots here, who care about development in the city or who want to help out a good cause.” Taylor said they are selling 4-inch by 8-inch engraved bricks and 8-inch by 8-inch engraved bricks, which will be placed in the front section of the pathway through the park – in front of the water feature and memorial. Each small paver can be engraved with up to three lines of

DELHI TWP. — Catherine Feerick said she looks forward to meeting more and more people in the community. She’ll be making her rounds through the township as Delhi’s new community and economic development manager, tasked with working alongside business leaders, civic leaders and residents to spur economic development. “It’s a position where it’s all about finding out what the people of Delhi want and what they need, and figuring out the best way to bring it to them,” Feerick said. The Delhi Township trustees approved her hire in early April and her first day on the job was April 28. Trustee Will Oswall said previous township boards conducted several studies on how to attract new businesses and ignite economic growth, but implementation of those studies fell flat. He said hiring a community and economic development manager puts a person on the ground to collaborate with businesses and residents to improve development in the township. “We have a goal we want to accomplish,” Oswall said. “We hope that she not only works to solicit new business and grow the community, but also works with existing businesses and helps those businesses if they have an issue.” A Zanesville, Ohio native, Feerick earned her bachelor’s degree from Loyola University in Chicago and her master’s degree in city and regional plan-

ST. LAWRENCE SQUARE construction to start this summer

By Kurt Backscheider

PRICE HILL — Work is expected to begin this summer on the neighborhood’s newest park space. Price Hill Will and the St. Lawrence Square Committee are developing St. Lawrence Square, a park at the corner of Warsaw and St. Lawrence avenues. The park will replace the vacant lot left behind when the former Eagle Savings Bank building burned down three years ago. “We’re very excited about helping create a new community space in the heart of East Price Hill,” Price Hill Will Executive Director Ken Smith said. “A lot of work has been put

in by a group of dedicated community members to get this park off the ground, and we’re very pleased to see it so close to fruition.” Pamela Taylor, community outreach coordinator for Price Hill Will, said Cincinnati provided a $107,000 grant to fund a portion of the park’s construction, and Price Hill Will and the St. Lawrence Square Committee are raising the remaining $70,000 needed to build it. She said plans for the park include a performance stage, a memorial to veterans from Price Hill, a water feature, a walkway and a large grassy area. Art features and sculptures may also be added in the future, she said. “We hope it can be a focal point for the neighborhood, of-

fering great activities and bringing people together,” she said. The park will be developed in two phases, with the first phase starting this summer, Taylor said. Price Hill Will is seeking bids for the first phase. She said the second phase, which includes construction of the veterans memorial, is anticipated to be completed next summer. Price Hill resident Pat Bruns, a member of the park committee, said, “We envision the park as a welcoming space that will bring people together to celebrate our rich traditions and create new, shared memories, a place where the arts can flourish as well as moments of quiet meditation.” Price Hill Will and the St. Lawrence Square Committee

They’ve even received orders from former Price Hill residents who now live in Georgia and California. “Once Price Hill is in your blood it’s there forever,” she said. “We are really grateful for all the support from individuals and businesses who have purchased pavers.” Bricks can be ordered online at Order forms are also available at the Price Hill Will office, 3724 St. Lawrence Ave.

ow many of you have felt uneasy over the amount of “diet” soft drinks your children are consuming each day? If your intuition has given you inter nal warnings, you are correct. As a chiropractor, I am very concerned with the increasing use of artificial swe e t e n e r s , e s p e c i a l ly by children.

Part of a retaining wall at West Fork Park collapsed into the parking lot earlier this year, resulting in the postponement of a monument dedication. The German American Citizens League of Greater Cincinnati planned to dedicate a new German Heritage Monument at West Fork Park in April, but First Vice President Manfred Schnetzer said the retaining wall collapse has changed his group’s plans. The wall was about 20 years old, according to public services foreman Randy Ludwig. Schnetzer said the monument his group is dedicating is a large, foursided pyramid with a

He then went and called for his wife, and found her and the other three women dead inside the vault. “It’s been pretty tough on us,” he said. “It seems like it’s every five to 10 years we have to go to the

parole board. The other two men died in prison and we’re hoping to keep him (Kassow) in there until he passes.” Howarth said people can write and mail traditional letters to the parole board, but they can also now submit a form online. He said online requests can be completed through the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s website at Simply go to the site, click on Raymond Kassow’s name, complete a

short form and submit it, Howarth said. “It takes 30 seconds and the responses go straight to the parole board,” he said.

He said the board does take it into consideration when they receive a lot of feedback from the community about how serious the crime was and how it affected people.

Get Hearing Help From a Pro Women are frequently the health-care decision makers in their families. Many women take time off from work to drive a parent to the doctor. They hold their children’s hands while getting vaccinations. They make the appointments for their spouse’s checkups- and then make sure their spouses actually go to the appointment. And too often, women put their own health last. The truth is, unless a woman takes care of herself FIRST, she really can’t take care of her family. The ability to communicate is a priceless gift. Unlike poor vision, hearing loss causes even greater loss of social contact and is clearly noticed by others around you. Detecting and treating hearing loss early is a significant step towards improving your quality of life. Audiologists Dr. Laurie DeWine and Stefanie Godbey of The Place for Better Hearing are committed to help you understand your hearing loss and find the best solution for your lifestyle needs. Audiologists are highly educated professionals, trained in anatomy and physiology, amplification devices, cochlear implants, electrophysiology, acoustics, physics of sound, and auditory rehabilitation.

training in the assessment and diagnosis of hearing loss as well as the fitting and adjustment of hearing aids. Upon completion of college and graduate school, audiologists must also pass a national standardized examination in order to be eligible for a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-LanguageHearing Association (ASHA) and state licensure. Many people who fit hearing aids are not audiologists. Some are hearing aid dispensers and they are licensed to perform hearing tests for the sole purpose of selling and fitting hearing aids. Hearing aid dispensers are required to have a high school diploma and pass an exam. Today’s hearing aids do make a difference in the lives of those who seek treatment for their hearing loss. Many people marvel at the amount of technology that fits into the case of a discrete hearing aid! Digital hearing aids can be programmed to amplify only the sounds you no longer hear well. They reduce listening effort in noisy environments and they virtually eliminate whistling and buzzing you may have heard from hearing aids of the past. OPEN LATE

GREEN TWP. — Hundreds of pristine cars will once again take over the parking lot at St. Antoninus parish. The ninth annual car show presented by St. Antoninus Cub Scout Pack 614 will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 17, at the church and school, 1500 Linneman Road. A rain date is set for Saturday, May 31, in the event Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate. Rick Rentz, a member of the pack’s car show committee, said the St. Antoninus pack has a large group of scouts and is still growing. The car show raises money to help the pack pay for advancement, outdoor events and scouting activities. It also serves as a way

to spark interest in scouting, he said. “Scouting has to be fun,” he said. Awards are presented to the top cars in the show. The pack’s Pinewood Derby winners help judge the collection of antique, classic and muscle cars. There are five special awards and trophies are presented to the top 40 cars. The first 200 cars will receive dash plaques, Rentz said. As always, he said the show will feature a concessions area with great food, door prizes, splitthe-pot, raffles, music provided by a disc jockey and a challenging automobile trivia contest. “I want this to be a learning experience,” Rentz said. “Walking around looking at cars is one thing, but if you’re actually learning something that’s a bonus.”

Sean Casey Championship Field

» The historic William Powell Co. is teaming up with a group of eight local companies to build Sean Casey Championship Field on Cincinnati’s West Side. Powell Valves, a supplier of valves since the company’s founding in1846, is contributing financially toward the new field at 6453 Bridgetown Road, next to Dulles Elementary School in Bridgetown. The effort is a partnership with the Cincinnati Reds Community Fund, which has helped renovate more than 350 baseball fields across Reds Country. The new field will be home to West Side Champions, a nonprofit sports organization for teams of fourth-througheighth-graders in baseball, basketball and football. Chuck Squeri of West Side Champions says there aren’t enough ball fields for youngsters on the West Side and that the Sean Casey field will help alleviate the shortage. The new baseball diamond will include dugouts, a doublewidth batting/pitching cage and lights, which will allow night practices, games and tournaments. West Side Champions is relying on corporate contributions (both financial and in-kind resources) and volunteer labor to keep costs at a minimum. “We are excited to be a part of this great project for youth in our community who want to pursue America’s great pastime,” Randy Cowart, president of Powell Valves, said about the sponsorship. “Baseball not only is a fun sport, but it teaches kids teamwork skills and good sportsmanship. It also encourages them to develop a strong work ethic and to be competitive, and that will help them in school and later in life.” Powell, located at 2503 Spring Grove Ave., Camp Washington, is joining corporate sponsors such as Skyline Chili, La Rosa’s Pizzeria and others to build the baseball field.

No matter the experience, Seton track finds success

By Tom Skeen

PRICE HILL — Astute observers can find Seton High School track coach Karen Berndt at any of her girls’ meets running from event to event in her Seton green shirt. And, why wouldn’t she take in the action? Seton boasts some of the top times around the Girls’ Greater Catholic League in nearly every event across the board and they’re doing it with a mixed bag of experience. Senior Jessica Frey is off to Northern Kentucky University to play soccer next season but decided to run track as a senior. Her 13.57 in the 100-meter dash is just .16 seconds

slower than junior teammate Kelsey Kurzhals. “I would say we’re thankful more than surprised,” Berndt said of Frey’s production this season. “Kelsey has been telling us how fast she is for a few years now and that’s she been trying to get her to run.” Kurzhals is the backbone of the team. She’s been a part of Seton’s regional qualifying relay teams in the past and continues to get set a new standard for sprinters at Seton. “She’s one of those sprinters who gets stronger as the year goes on,” Berndt added. “She gets stronger in her actual performance and her desire and motivation. She did the same as See SETON, Page A9

St. Xavier volleyball wins GCL for 1st time since ‘06 By Tom Skeen

If 2014 mirrors 2006 for the St. Xavier High School volleyball team, it’s going to be a fun next few weeks for the Bombers. St. X (14-1) clinched the Greater Catholic League title for the first time since ’06, the same year as their last state title in volleyball. “That was nice; it was one of our goals this year,” coach Bill Ferris said of winning the GCL. “The record is icing on the cake. I didn’t know if we’d be undefeated (or) at .500. I didn’t know where we’d fall, but I love being closer to the undefeated side than the .500 side.” Winning brings more than a smile to a coach’s face; it gives the coach a bevy of options throughout the season when it comes to his lineup. “It buys me some time,” Ferris said. “It buys patience on my behalf. It’s given us a chance to try to work a little bit for next year as well. I get to see what they can do, what they

like to do in games, what they don’t and then probably equally as important, I get to rest some of the starters. I don’t have to keep pushing them out there every single game.” That rest may prove vital come the postseason. The South Region continues to play as one of the toughest regions in the state and this year is no

different. Moeller is ranked No. 1 in the OHSBVA state poll with the Elder Panthers sitting at No. 2, one spot in front of the Bombers. St. X is 3-1 against its GCL foes this season. The play of libero Brian Dahm models why this team’s been successful. Dahm made See VOLLEYBALL, Page A9

the seamless transition from setter to libero this season and is one of a group of eight seniors to find themselves in a different role. “Our senior leadership is solid,” Ferris said. “They’re all comfortable playing.

stayed down on junior varsity last season so they could make the transition to the varsity level as a group in 2014. This allows for Ferris and his coaching staff to be more efficient with their precious time in the gym. “The thing that’s nice is we don’t have to spend as much time showing it to them, we can tell them and they understand,” he said. “They understand what they’re supposed to do and they can feel what’s supposed to happen. We know we’re not perfect, we know we have some things to work on and we know anything short of a chance at that state championship is going to be pretty disappointing for us this year.”

a freshman and a sophomore so we fully expect the same for her as a junior.” Maria Torok has come a long way in one season. Torok took down McAuley’s McKenzie Pfeifer in the 400-meter race at the Winton Woods Invitational April 23 by .02 seconds. “I think it just justifies all the hard work she put in during the offseason,” Berndt said of Torok’s victory. “She was three or four seconds behind (Pfeifer) last year and then to come out and see she’s right there just shows her and other people how far she’s come.” Two first-year runners have made an immediate impact in the distance events. Stefanie Autenrieb showed up on

Berndt’s doorstep the first week of the season and is running sub-2:29.00 in the 800, while freshman Audrey Laiveling – who splits time between soccer practice and track every week – ran the 1,600 in 5:23.60 at Winton Woods. “I had to really convince her to run,” Berndt said of Laiveling. “She had a good, humble attitude and really works hard and supports the other girls, so they’re supportive of her.” Junior Alyssa Ramstetter owns the school record and top throw in the league in the discus at 123 feet, four inches. She shattered the old record of 116 feet that was set in 2002. The lone Saint who hasn’t seen much of the track is the defending Division I state champion high jumper Loretta Blaut. The senior twisted

her ankle on the basketball court on senior night and has jumped just once this season, but that could be changing soon. “She cleared 5-2 at Coaches Classic but has not jumped since then,” Berndt said. “We plan on bringing her back Friday (May 2). She’s been able to do all the weight room stuff and she’s getting stronger, but that left ankle’s just been to weak so far.” With success across the board Berndt can’t help but thank her seven assistant coaches for their contributions. “Each group is like a mini group and we all come together as one on meet day. We’re pulling girls from other teams and getting them some strength and speed work. We’re starting to get multi-sport athletes coming to us, and it’s helping us and it’s helping them.”

School will miss 137 years of class F

our teachers will be retiring from Sayler Park School at the end of the school year. Marc Katz, Nancy Mock, Deborah Kastens and Donna Mitchell have a combined 137 years of teaching experience. Katz began his teaching career in 1977, as a music and dance teacher on the college level. He taught at Loyola Marymount University, Virginia Commonwealth, and the University of South Florida, before he discovered he liked teaching on the elementary level. He came to Cincinnati Public Schools in 1994, as a substitute music teacher. “I have taught for Schiel (now SCPA), Hays, Washburn, Taft, Mt. Airy and Winton Hills Academy. I had been at Winton Hills Academy for 12 years when, this year, I was asked to join the staff of Sayler Park Elementary on alternating quarters with Winton Hills Academy” Mock has been teaching special children for 30 years. She began at the Special Center for Learning at Hamilton County as a self contained teacher of emotionally disturbed children. Two years later she came to Cincinnati Public Schools as a special education teacher. She taught at Chas, Heinhold, and Gamble for 18 years. Eleven years ago she came to Sayler Park as an

intervention specialist. “I will miss our Sayler Park family, but am looking forward to coming back Betty occasionally as Kamuf a substitute COMMUNITY PRESS teacher.” GUEST COLUMNIST Kastens has been an intervention specialist for Cincinnati Public Schools for 33 years. She began at Winton Terrace Primary, which became little CAPE and later Winton Montessori. Fifteen years later she went to Washington Park School. “I have fond memories of Washington Park School. My mother was raised near Findley Market and my parents would tell stories of walking through the park” She has been at Sayler Park School for 14 years. “I must say this is my favorite school. Great community, great principal, great staff and great children. I will truly miss everyone.” Mitchell began her teaching career with Cincinnati Public Schools in 1968 at Windsor Elementary. She taught one of the first all-day kindergarten classes in Cincinnati. “My love for young children and seeing them learn, led to my career in the field of teaching. I left Windsor to teach

second, second- and third-, a combination class, and halfday Kindergarten.” She left teaching for 10 years, but returned in 1990. She taught at Eastwood Paideia, then Washington Park for 10 years, Covedale for one year, and Sayler Park for nine years. In her 35-year teaching career, “I have made many lasting friendships with students and their families and numerous colleagues. Teaching is a fantastic career.” School secretary Karen Kohlbrandt is also retiring. She started at Cincinnati Public schools in 1939 as a paraprofessional at what is now known as Ethel Taylor School, in a special math program. Then she went to Roberts and Whittier, now known Rees E. Price, as a reading specialist. She taught preschool special education, and found she enjoyed working with young children. In 2000, she took the test for a clerical position and became a secretary. She was at Pleasant Hill for two years and then came to Sayler Park School. “I have been at Sayler Park for 11 years and I will miss the staff and students at Sayler Park. They have become my second family.” They made the school a pleasant place to be and we wish them all a happy retirement. Betty Kamuf

“I would suggest that U.S. Food & Drug Administration ban electronic cigarettes for everyone regardless of flavor. That would also mean no more ordering online and advertising. “Who are we kidding? Electronic or non-electronic, cigarettes promote bad habits and bad health. Let’s ban all cigarettes and have a healthier country and better air for all of us. “Then, let’s ban fast food and soft drinks and maybe we’d all be thinner and our children wouldn’t be learning another bad habit from the adults in their lives. “While we’re at it, let’s put all the drug pushers behind bars and stop drugs from entering the United States, then we wouldn’t have to read about any more people dying of drug overdoses. “That would be my plan.”


“I have mixed feelings about bans on any products of this type. The ban (Prohibition) of alcohol didn’t work, it only increased crime and filled prisons. The ‘war on drugs’ has had the same results, only on a much larger scale. “While I doubt that a partial ban (age and product type) on e-cigarettes would

New law may change birth parent’s life forever If you are an Ohio birth parent who relinquished a child to adoption from 1964 to 1996, then you need to be aware that you may be in for the most wonderful, frightening, joyous, and surreal time of your life—meeting your child for the second (or even first) time! Last December Gov. Kasich signed into law substitute SB 23 that gives adopted adults born between 1964 and 1996 access to their original birth certificates. The intent of the law is to end discrimination and confer the same civil rights to Ohio adoptees as to any other citizen, namely access to personal

From research done in other states that opened sealed adoption records, very few birth parents ever say they want no contact. The forms are available on the Ohio Department of Health website.

For some birth parents the prospect of reunion with their lost children may seem daunting, even frightening. I know this is true because I was one of those women who kept it secret from all but a few for 29 years. Opening the door to the past and confronting my long buried feelings of shame and grief were difficult at first, but so very liberating once the truth was told. With my family’s blessing and support, I made it easy for my adopted daughter to find us if she was looking. In our community support for birth parents like me is

available through Ohio Birthparent Group-Cincinnati. The group’s purpose is to provide a safe space for birth parents of all generations to share their stories and get support and guidance from other birth parents that understand this lifelong journey. The group meets the third Saturday of every month from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Blue Ash Public Library. For more information, contact Susan Anthony is a Madeira resident.

H.A. Musser Jr. (right), president and CEO of Santa Maria Community Services, and Price Hill Will Executive Director Ken Smith accept a grant check for $20,000 from Interact for Health's Jaime Love. PROVIDED



anta Maria Community Services has received a $20,000 grant from Interact for Health to support a free community training program for the ninth annual Price Hill Pacer 5k Walk/Run June 7. The grant will allow Santa Maria, a Price Hill-based nonprofit organization, to provide two weekly training sessions for 12 weeks to encourage participation in the Price Hill Pacer as well as overall community fitness and wellness.

“The main goal of the program is to get people up and moving while having fun,” saidH.A. Musser Jr., Santa Maria president and CEO. “We want to encourage people to be active and healthy, and this grant gives us the opportunity to create a supportive environment built around community.” Santa Maria is one of 18 organizations invited by Interact for Health to plan new active-living events, develop

promotion for existing events or recruit new participants. “Active living is shown to promote cardiovascular fitness, strengthen bones and muscles, reduce the risk of many chronic diseases and help folks maintain a healthy weight,” says Jaime Love, senior program officer for healthy eating and active living at Interact for Health. “In addition to the physical benefits, being active in your community can reduce stress, en-

hance self-esteem and foster an overall sense of well-being.” Participants who attend at least half of the 24 training sessions will receive free race registration, normally $20. Door prizes will be awarded at each session, and Santa Maria will host monthly achievement celebrations and a postrace party for all trainees. The Price Hill Pacer is an annual fundraising event that benefits both Santa Maria and

another local non-profit, Price Hill Will. “We are passionate about health and wellness, and we want to make this training program fun and easily accessible for our neighbors,” Musser ssaid. “The Price Hill Pacer has been a terrific community event these past eight years. We’re thrilled to encourage new participants and make this event a gateway to better health for them and their families.”

Kehoe Financial Advisors speaker: ‘Don’t let your future get stuck in the past’ Business coach and motivational speaker Mike Monahan of Loveland offered insights and a personal perspective at high tea recently for women attending a client appreciation event at the Cincinnatian Hotel. “Your future is stuck in your past,” Monahan said. “Your emotions drive behavior. We can’t change the past, but we can learn from it and use it to make our futures. Life is an accumulation of a lot of little decisions, so we are only one deci-

sion away from making a lot of great decisions and a better future for ourselves.” Monahan, former CEO and director at Life Success Seminars in West Chester Township, spoke at the event sponsored by Kehoe Financial Advisors, a Cincinnati financial planning services and investment firm. A copy of Monahan’s new book, “Your Future is Stuck in Your Past” was given to each of the women in attendance. The book is available on Monahan told the group he flunked the third-grade and had an alcoholic father, experiences that shaped his life and caused him to undervalue his strengths and talents as an adult. A pipefitter until the age of 40, he took a Life Success course that opened his eyes and changed his life and career. He realized that the only way to move forward in life was to make good decisions every day. The only way to free yourself to make good decisions was to learn from the past, not let it define you. He spent the next 19 years as Life Success CEO and director before retiring in 2013 to focus on public speaking and writing books.

Offer mom Rita’s treats for Mother’s Day My Mom, Mary Nader, really did follow the beat of a different drummer. Mom was traditional in many ways except when it came to clothes. She was the first on our block to wear petal pushers (we call them Capris now). Not so much because they were fashionable, but because they were comfortable. I’m a little bit like my Mom in that reRita spect. Heikenfeld I like beRITA’S KITCHEN ing fashionable, but comfort trumps fashion every time. Luckily, with the assortment of clothing today, I can be both. When it came to food, Mom was “out there”, as well. We ate squid when it was just called squid, not Calamari and we ate whatever was in season. Her meager budget demanded it. She had the Mediterranean diet down pat, and as a mother myself, I appreciate more and more all the wisdom she imparted. I’ve learned that one can be a Mom without ever bearing children. My sister, Judy, is a good example of this. She has been like a Mom to our nieces and nephews. So for all the Moms out there, biological or otherwise, the happiest of Mother’s Day to you!

Pastry shop Pavlova/Meringues

Now this would be an

elegant, yet fairly easy, dessert for Mom. 8 extra large egg whites, room temperature 1 teaspoon cream of tartar 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 cups granulated sugar 1 tablespoon vanilla Preheat oven to 175200. Line baking sheets with parchment. Beat egg whites, using low speed until whites are loose and foamy. Add cream of tartar and salt and increase speed to medium. Beat until whites stand in soft but frothy peaks. Turn to high and add sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, beating for 5 seconds after each addition. This assures sugars dissolves and meringues come out crispy, not too chewy. The meringue will be shiny and will fall into firm peaks when beater is lifted. Place meringue into a pastry bag with star or plain tip and draw a circle, starting from middle out. This will be your base. You can make the circle as big as you like. Then build up sides, about 3 layers. Or just plop a large dollop of meringue onto parchment and then take a spoon to hollow out center, making sure you still have a nice coating of meringue on the bottom in center. Bake 2 hours, or until meringues are dry and crisp throughout. Pull from parchment paper and store up to two weeks in airtight containers. Fill with whipped cream and

Jack’s chocolate covered strawberries for Mom My grandson, Jack, invited me to read to his second grade class at Guardian Angels’ school. “If you like, bring in a treat”, his mom, Jessie, said. The only thing I had on hand

was strawberries and chocolate, so I made chocolate dipped strawberries. Talk about a hit. The kids wanted to know how to make them. I told them I’d publish the recipe for them to make, and here it is. Easy enough for Jack and other little hands to make for Mom. 1 pound strawberries with stems 12 oz. favorite chocolate morsels Rinse, but do not hull berries. Drain and pat completely dry.

Santa Maria to honor Kahn at luncheon

Santa Maria Community Services will honor Dr. Rob Kahn with the Sr. Margarita Brewer Hope Award at the annual Bienestar Luncheon May 16. Kahn, a professor of pediatrics and the associate director of the Division of General and Community Pediatrics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospi-

tal Medical Center, focuses his work on reducing child health disparities and ensuring that every child has the opportunity for a healthy life. “Helping children lead healthier lives is critical to building strong communities and thriving families,” said H.A Musser Jr., Santa

Maria president and CEO. “Dr. Kahn’s work aligns perfectly with the mission of Santa Maria’s Wellness/Bienestar Program. He has brought Children’s Hospital’s high-level expertise and data-driven results as well as his own personal passion to enhance our work with all children in Price Hill.”

Children’s Hospital President and CEO Michael Fisher will be the keynote speaker at the Bienestar Luncheon, and Children’s will receive the Organizational Award. The luncheon’s theme is “Celebrating Healthy Families,” a cornerstone of the Wellness/Bienestar program, which be-

gan in 2002 to improve the accessibility to health-care services for Hispanic immigrants in the Greater Price Hill area. The luncheon, sponsored by TriHealth, Children’s and the SC Ministry Foundation, runs from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. May 16 at the Millennium Hotel downtown. Cost is

Although they don’t sound very professional, callers from overseas are upsetting a lot of area people by claiming they are with the Internal Revenue Service and threatening them with jail time for unpaid taxes. The IRS says this crime is continuing nationwide even though the tax deadline has passed. A woman in Bethel wrote me saying she’s been, “Receiving several phone calls a day from someone wanting to speak to my husband. The one time that I answered a foreign sounding man asked if I was Tom. When I said no he said he had the wrong number and hung up. Since then I have ignored the calls and today he left three messages on our voicemail saying he was with the IRS and threatening us if we did

not respond.” In leaving the voicemail message the caller also left a phone Howard number to Ain call back. I HEY HOWARD! checked that number on the internet and found lots of other people have received these same calls from a man threatening them with arrest for tax fraud. I too received one of these calls from a foreign sounding man who claimed an arrest warrant had been issued for my wife for unpaid taxes. I said, “Fine, I’m turning on my recorder so I am sure to get everything correctly.” He very quickly hung up. The IRS says its received reports of these callers being particularly aggressive in the past few months. It says, “Immigrants are frequently targeted. Potential victims are threatened with deportation, arrest, having

their utilities shut off, or having their driver’s licenses revoked. Callers are frequently insulting or hostile – apparently to scare their potential victims.” After threatening victims sometimes the scammers hang up and then have others call back pretending to be from the local police or Department of Motor Vehicles. They can even spoof the caller ID on your phone to make it appear they’re calling from the IRS, the police or the BMV. The IRS says if you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS, and you know you don’t owe taxes or have no reason to think you owe taxes, then report the call to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at 800-366-4484.

Bengals host draft party at Western Bowl Western Bowl is hosting Strikes For Kids’ “Cincy Draft Party,” the first celebrity bowling event in the area to benefit Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Foundation and the Domata Peko Foundation at noon Saturday, May 10. Strikes For Kids, a nonprofit organization known for creating opportunities

for fans to meet sports icons, has partnered with Bengals standout defen-

sive lineman Domata Peko and receiver Marvin Jones. This partnership allows participants the chance to bowl alongside professional football players while supporting great causes. “I’m excited to announce the partnership between Mr. Jones, Mr. Peko and Strikes For

Kids,” said Joe Allen, Strikes For Kids Founder. “We’re looking forward to helping out the children and giving back to the Cincinnati community. For Bengals’ fans especially, it is great to have these guys support and participate in this charity bowling tournament which supports wonderful

causes behind this event.” Participating bowlers are encouraged to sign-up in teams of six players per lane for a total donation of $175 or for $35 per bowler. The registration costs include three games of bowling, shoes, soft drinks, custom shirt and an event bag. Guests not interested in bowling can

also attend the event for $20 per person. In addition to hanging out with their favorite professional football players, participants have the opportunity to win exciting prizes during a silent auction. Bowlers of all ages and skill levels are welcome to register at

GCPAS welcomes Ambrosia May 10 The Greater Cincinnati Performing Arts Society will welcome the classic rock group Ambrosia to the McAuley Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 10. The show will be the finale of the GCPAS season 7 concert series. With five Grammy nominations and five hit singles, Ambrosia still packs an amazing punch after 35 years in the business. The lineup includes three of the four founding members and they still nail everyone of their remarkable songs to the letter. The first album, “Ambrosia,” produced by Freddie Piro, was released in 1975. It spawned the Top 20 chart single “Holdin’ On To Yesterday” as well as the minor hit “Nice, Nice, Very Nice.” The album was nominated for a Grammy award for best engineered recording (other than classical). Alan Parsons was the engineer for Ambrosia’s first album and the producer for their second.

The Greater Cincinnati Performing Arts Society will welcome the classic rock group Ambrosia to the McAuley Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 10.PROVIDED

After lengthy touring, the band returned in 1976 with “Somewhere I’ve Never Travelled.” The album yielded the title song and the single “Can’t Let A Woman,” which both became FM favorites, both featuring lush orchestration and vocal arrangements. In 1976, the group covered The Beatles song “Magical Mystery Tour” for the transitory musical documentary “All This and World War II.” The film’s soundtrack consisted of different groups

providing arrangements of Beatles songs. In 1978 “Life Beyond L.A.” was released. It marked a move away from their lush arrangements and introduced a more raw, aggressive progressive rock/jazz influence. The year 1978 marked their biggest pop breakthrough with their first Gold single “How Much I Feel” from the album, which was a No. 3 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. Warner Bros advertised the title cut for radio and Life Beyond L.A. started

to get significant airplay on radio stations a few months after the album’s release. In 1980 Warner Bros. released “One Eighty,” which produced two of the year’s biggest hits. The first, “Biggest Part of Me,” reached number three for three weeks on the Hot 100 and crossed over to the soul chart, where it peaked at number 35. The second, another blue-eyed soul hit, “You’re the Only Woman (You & I),” reached No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100. The Ambrosia concert is hosted by the Greater Cincinnati Performing Arts Society, which is a registered non-profit charity. Proceeds from the performances support tuition assistance programs at Catholic elementary school throughout Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Tickets for the event are $35 in advance, $40 day of show. For tickets and information, go to or call 513-484-0157.
