Students preserve memories

By Kurt Backscheider

Students at Seton High School are learning the spirit and traditions at the school remain constant throughout generations. While the school itself has undergone major transformations and renovations, the values have never changed. Students in the religion classes taught by Sister Mary Kay Bush, SC, and Donald Wurzelbacher are putting together a video to show just that. Last October the school invited six women from Bayley Place who graduated from Seton in the 1930s to a tea party at the school, and students recorded the stories the alumnae told of their years at Seton. Students then put together a video script and recently began filming re-enactments of those 1930 stories. Students even dressed in that decade style and donned old Seton uniforms. “They play the roles of the Bayley Place storytellers, and then we have a transition to how the same kind of things happen even today,” Wurzelbacher said. “It’s an exciting and elaborate video project.” For instance, Bush said one of the stories an alumna told was about the paper drives the school used to have, which parallels with a shoe collection drive the school recently held for the people of Haiti. One alumna told the story of how she met her husband, an Elder High School student, on the sidewalk in front of the school, while another explained how she was called to the principal’s office


Seton High School students Ashley Doyle, (from left, standing) Jennifer Rodgers, Alyssa Kaine and Sarah Doyle perform a scene while Seton religion teacher Donald Wurzelbacher, center with camera, records it for a video project students are creating. Seton student Jenna Kuhl, far right, portrays a nun from the 1930s for the project, which features re-enactments of events from the school in the 1930s-based on stories told by Seton alumnae who attended the school back then. for reporting that a pair of twin sisters went missing as a prank. “Seton has a legacy that goes on for the ages,” Bush said. Wurzelbacher said every student in the religion department had the opportunity to contribute ideas to the video script, and about 30 students have participated in filming the story re-enactments. Freshmen Ashley and Sarah Doyle, twins who play the afore-

mentioned “missing” sisters in the video, said it’s been fun to put on the old uniforms and experience what life at Seton was like in the 1930s. “It wasn’t very different back then,” Ashley Doyle said. “It still means the same thing today to be a Seton Saint as it did back then, and everyone loves their experiences here.” Sarah Doyle said the noticeable difference is the uniform.

“The uniforms they used to wear are pretty cute, but you get very hot wearing them,” she said. Wurzelbacher said the finished video will be shown to the entire student body during an upcoming assembly. “I want them to get a sense of how Seton’s values haven’t changed,” he said. “The faces change, but the values stay the same and even grow stronger.”

Duncan Kelley has upheld a family tradition. Like his two brothers before him, the Holy Family sixth-grader has reached the 1,000point mark in the school’s accelerated reader program. “It feels pretty good knowing I’m extending the legacy,” said Kelley, who recently joined his older brothers, Holden and Cameron, as members of the 1,000-point club. Besides the three Kelley brothers, there are only two other Holy Family students who have earned at least 1,000 points in the program. Duncan Kelley said the accelerated reader program is open to every student in the school in grades one through eight. To earn points, students read a book and then take a short quiz about the story. If they answer all the questions correctly they earn the amount of points designated for that specific book, and the points accumulate over time. He said points vary based on the difficulty of the book. For example, many of the books he read in first-grade were only worth a half a point, but an 888-page Harry Potter book he read in fourth-grade – “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” – was worth 44 points. “That’s the biggest book I’ve read, yet,” he said. Kelley said most of the books he read en

He follows in the footsteps of his older brothers, Holden and Cameron. route to 1,000 points were worth on average 17 to 20 points. He said he’s probably read more than 300 books since first-grade.

His father, Deron Kelley, said, “You have to knock out a ton of books to reach 1,000.” He said when his sons aren’t busy with school, homework or playing sports, their noses are usually in a book. And they all talk trash with one another and push each other to succeed. “I’ve been giving my younger brother, Paxton, a hard time,” Duncan Kelley said. “I was 200 points past where he is right now.” Deron Kelley said he’s confident Paxton, who is in the fifth-grade, will join his older brothers at the 1,000-point mark, as will Griffin, the youngest Kelley boy. “They’ve all hit 1,000 points around fifthor sixth-grade,” Deron said. Duncan, who plays baseball, basketball and soccer, said his favorite book is “Pendragon: The Soldiers of Halla,” and the book he read to put him at 1,000 points was “The Kingdom of the Golden Dragon.” “I like the more understandable fiction books, but not the ones where you go off to fantasy land and dance around with ponies,” he said. “Reading is just fun. It gives me something to do and keeps by brain going. Lord help me if I didn’t have books.” For joining the 1,000-point club, Duncan will be presented a certificate in front of the entire school at an assembly, have a book donated to the school library in his name and get to serve as Holy Family’s principal for a day.

The volunteers at Anderson Ferry Food Pantry are always grateful for food donations. Now, they say, they need money as well. “We appreciate the green beans, but we really need another kind of green right now,” said Matt Miller, a longtime volunteer and assistant to pantry director Ginny Murphy. Miller said the pantry desperately needs to fix and replace refrigerators and freezers. “We are strictly volunteer and have no income except for donations,” said Lea Papner, who has logged more than 20 years of vol-

unteer service. She currently has added raising money to her weekly chores at the pantry. “We need money not only to buy food from the FreeStore, but to put gas in our van, pay for utilities and insurance, and other things,” she said gesturing around the cramped pantry. With boxes, both empty and filled with food waiting to be shelved, there’s little room left for the estimated 600 families who visit the pantry monthly. “We can only manage three people in here at a time,” Murphy said. “So, we have people lined up outside in the cold and rain.” Papner is hoping the pantry will benefit from a May 31 FreestoreFoodbank Hunger Walk. If those entering the walk list the pantry as the agency they are walking for, the pantry receives money. “It’s important that they list the pantry on the form or we don’t get credit or money,” Papner said. Those forms are available at the pantry, 380 Greenwell Ave., and must be received by Friday, May 21. The pantry is open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday and Thursday.


Lea Papner unloads boxes of frozen food items for the Anderson Ferry Food Pantry. Papner has logged 20 years as a pantry volunteer and now is helping to raise money for the nonprofit group. Papner also is planning an Elder and Oak Hills high schools alumni softball game sometime this summer. “We’ll have canned food as the admission and then, hopefully, make money with raffles and selling concessions,” Papner said. “I’d like to have events that could be annual 2323 Ferguson Road • 513-451-4900

Cub Scout car show rolls into 5th year

Frank Ellert said if car shows don’t grow bigger each year the organizers are probably doing something wrong. The car show committee in St. Antoninus Cub Scout Pack 614 is doing something right. Scouts and their parents are getting ready for the pack’s fifth annual car show fundraiser, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 22, at the church, 1500 Linneman Road. Ellert, the pack’s Cubmaster and chairman of the car show committee, said the response for last year’s show was tremendous, with nearly 200 car owners entering the show.

“That was double the number of entrants in any of the previous years,” he said. “Continual improvement seems to be the key to growing the size of the show.” He said the pack hopes to have more than 200 cars in this year’s show, and to help improve the event and better promote it they set up a car show website through The site contains show information, online registration for exhibitors and a page dedicated to the event sponsors. He said the St. Antoninus pack is a large group of 75 scouts and is still growing. The car show raises money to help the pack pay for advancement, outdoor

events and scouting activities, but Ellert said it’s also a way to spark interest in scouting. “To help keep the boys interested, scouting has to be fun,” he said. The scouts in pack 614 help judge the collection of antique, classic and muscle cars at the show, and the Rev. Christopher Armstrong, pastor of St. Antoninus, awards the St. Christopher trophy, in honor of the patron saint of travel. Rick Rentz, a member of the car show committee, said this year’s show will again feature a concessions area, door prizes, split-thepot, raffles and music, as well as an automobile trivia contest. The winner receives three hours of limousine service and a dinner

St. Catharine presents Italian festival May 14-16 By Kurt Backscheider

St. Catharine of Siena parishioners are only a few days away from their annual festival, which is featured as a cultural festival this year. The parish teamed up with several Italian societies in Cincinnati to present CincItalia, the inaugural Cincinnati Italian Festival. The event runs 6 p.m. to midnight Friday, May 14; 3 p.m.-11 p.m. Saturday, May 15; and 1 p.m.-9 p.m. Sunday, May 16, at Harvest Home Park in Cheviot. “We’re making a very sincere effort to transform our traditional church festival into a cultural festival,” said Gregg Ellerhorst, a St. Catharine parishioner helping organize the festivities. “We want to cover all the Italian cultural aspects.” He said restaurants like Pompilios, Trattoria Roma, Gabby’s Cafe, Noce’s Pizzeria and LaRosa’s will offer Italian cuisine, as will mem-

bers of the Order Sons of Italy in America, the United Italian Society and La Societa Fuscaldese Femminile. Italian chefs will perform cooking demonstrations, including West Side’s own Buddy LaRosa. A heritage display of Italian history in Cincinnati is a feature of the festival, as well as an Italian car show, Italian dancing, a Bocce court, wine garden and coffee/espresso bar. Joe Mastruserio, a St. Catharine parishioner also on the planning committee, said converting the traditional parish festival into a cultural festival is a way to offer something new and different and, hopefully, attract more people to the event. “If you miss a church festival this week there’s another one next week,” he said. “We had to think of something else to attract people.” “And St. Catharine is the patron saint of Italy, so it was a natural choice. It

made perfect sense to do an Italian festival.” Ellerhorst said live music includes The Remains, Sal Ventura and Dr. Zoot, the Bill Antoniak Band and Ray Massa’s EuroRhythms. “When we first started discussing this we said, ‘If we’re going to present a cultural festival let’s go all out and do it the right way,’” Ellerhorst said.

Mercy freshman wins student art contest By Kurt Backscheider

Emily Friedmann said she’d never won anything for her artwork before entering the 2010 student art contest sponsored by the Cincinnati Nature Center.

She might want to consider entering more contests. Friedmann, a freshman at Mother of Mercy High School, won this year’s art contest with her colored pencil drawing titled, “The Frog’s Melody.”

“I was shocked,” the Cleves resident said. “It was a great honor and it was really cool.” Each year the nature center sponsors a student art contest to coincide with its annual fundraising gala, Back to Nature: Nature’s Symphony. The winner’s artwork is used to promote the event, which took place April 30 this year. Friedmann’s drawing was used as the cover art for invitations and other promotional materials. Kristi Masterson, community relations manager for the nature center, said student artists from eight different high schools submitted works for this year’s contest. She said a committee of artists judge the submissions and choose the winner. “Emily’s work was a wonderful picture of a frog,” Masterson said. “It really captivated our

“And when I thought about the symphony theme I figured a frog would be perfect. I think frogs have a major role in nature’s symphony because they are so loud.” She said she had the option of keeping her winning artwork or selling it for profit at the nature center’s fundraiser. “I chose to keep it,” she

said. “It was my first big thing and my mom liked it so I thought I’d keep it around.” Friedmann said she takes fundamentals of art at Mercy this year and plans to continue taking art classes throughout her high school career. “It’s fun to be creative,” she said. “It’s a good way to get away from schoolwork.”

Students honored at ‘freedom’ banquet


Students attending the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge were: Holly Bottenhorn of Wyoming High School; Kathleen Bosse of Deer Park High School; Bradley DePaoli of Elder High School; Anna Deutsch of Lakota East High School; Marcus Hollingsworth of Western Hills High School; Balpreet Kaur of Lakota West High School; Maggie Ledbetter of Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy; Hannah Leeper of Loveland High School; Shonae Mason of Winton Woods High School; Kyle McQuinn of Dayton Christian High School; Luke Moore of Elder High School; Stacy Purcell of Mariemont High School; Lucas Hall of Lakota East High School; Emmie Stehling of Mariemont High School; Yuvaraj Seth of Indian Hill High School; Sean Spurlock of Miami Valley Christian Academy; and Shellera Tarter of Lakota West High School. The chaperon was Mustaffa Yisrael, history teacher on faculty at Western Hills High School.

The Greater Cincinnati Chapter of Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge held its annual recognition banquet at Clovernook Country Club March 21 honoring 17 high school juniors who attended the “Spirit of America” conference at the Foundation headquarters in Valley Forge, Penn. The students were escorted by Mustafaa Yisrael, history teacher at Western Hills High School. The students created a video report for their parents and the chapter attendees to illustrate their activities and the highlights of their trip. The conference is a unique program for high school students offering a rare opportunity for par-

ticipation in a four-day residential program. The focus is on the discussion of current issues facing the United States from a historical and global perspective. The discussions also relate to questions of constitutional law and government. Applications were received from 25 students, representing 16 high schools in the Greater Cincinnati area. Students were asked to submit an essay on the subject of, “What Freedom Means to Me.” The finalists were selected based on the ratings of their essays. Featured speaker at this year’s event was Don Roeper representing the Patriot Guard Riders motorcycle funeral honor guard.

Imagine living in a world of darkness. You would live in fear and insecurity, never knowing where you were going or how you were going to get there. Unfortunately, this is the reality of individuals who are unable to read. Seventyfive percent of students who are poor readers in third grade will remain poor readers in high school, and 40 percent of Cincinnati’s urban youth failed the state’s reading proficiency test. The plethora of children with reading deficiencies in the Greater Cincinnati area is staggering, but the outlook can change through the help of generous volunteers! Cincinnati Reads, Cincinnati Youth Collaborative (CYC), Urban League of

Greater Cincinnati, and the YMCA are collaborating to offer quality, research-driven training to Cincinnati Public Schools tutors. The Fifth Quarter Initiative, Cincinnati Public Schools’ targeted summer school program, runs from June 126. The Cincinnati Public Schools who will be served through this collaborative tutoring effort include: • Rees E. Price, 1702 Grand Ave, 45214, Price Hill • Roll Hill, 2411 Baltimore Ave., 45225, Fairmount • Quebec Heights, 1655 Ross Ave., 45205, Price Hill Tutors must complete a two-hour training hosted by Cincinnati Reads and Strive/CLC Tutoring Network, provide positive char-

acter references, and pass a background check. The training is free and is held at the Literacy Network. Registration is required and can be completed by calling the Literacy Network at 621-7323 or e-mail In the two hour training session volunteers will cover a wide array of topics including: policies and procedures, relationship building with students, math and reading tutoring, learning modalities, and special needs students. Become a volunteer today and help brighten the lives of children struggling with literacy! To learn more about the Fifth Quarter Initiative program or register for free training call the Literacy Network at 621-7323.

Lady Mustangs finish perfect in CMAC By Tony Meale

With an unblemished 9-0 record in league play, the Western Hills High School softball team has won the Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference in convincing fashion. Through their first eight league games, the Mustangs outscored the opposition 145-10. Western Hills began the year with 25-0 and 22-0 wins over Taft and Aiken, respectively, before dropping three of four to Madeira, Deer Park and Sycamore by a final score of 36-1. The Mustangs responded by winning seven straight, including six games against league opponents. “We started playing teams with similar backgrounds (as us) again,” Western Hills head coach Craig Black said regarding his team’s streak. “(Cincinnati Public School) softball players tend to only play in-

season.” Leading Western Hills is senior pitcher Tabitha Beebe, who has thrown two no-hitters and has two home runs this season. She is the reigning CMAC Player of the Year and was named all-city as a junior. “She’s been very consistent,” Black said. “She doesn’t give up a lot of hits, and she pounds the strike zone.” Also playing a large role is sophomore catcher Becky Owens, who has 12 doubles and a home run on the season. “She eats, breathes and sleeps softball,” Black said. “She has the background, experience and commitment that a lot of players don’t have. She’s a legitimate college prospect.” Owens has been equally impressive behind the plate, throwing out 10 would-be base stealers on the season. “Teams will try to run on her, but she’ll throw out the first runner and

they’ll stop; they’re not as aggressive,” Black said. “It gives us a better chance of keeping runners out of scoring position.” Senior shortstop Micalah Sims, meanwhile, has two home runs and has played solid defense for the Mustangs. “She’s the leader of our infield,” Black said. “She tells girls what to do and where the ball needs to go.” Also performing well are junior third baseman Melvona Coleman and senior first baseman Kelly Huff. “This is (Coleman’s) first year on varsity; she started off a little slow, but she’s really stepped up,” Black said. And (Huff) never played first base before this year, so she’s had to learn all the footwork.” Huff hasn’t made an error at first all season. Other contributors include Elena Ball, Miah Davis, Bianca Evans, Dominique Hosch, Chelsea Huddleston, Katie Irons, Shanyce Johnson and Amber Jung.

Black, who is in the midst of his first year coaching at Western Hills, said he’s been impressed with how easily the team has adjusted to his coaching style. He replaced Lori Troescher, who coached the Mustangs for 25 years. Western Hills, seeded No. 20 for the tournament, opens against No. 14 Northwest after Community Press deadline May 10. If victorious, the Mustangs advance to face No. 1 Mason, but Black isn’t looking ahead. “We need to improve our consistency,” said Black, who coached at Hughes for five years. “Sometimes we come out flat in certain games. It takes us an inning or two to get to where we need to be.” Black hopes to lead Western Hills to its first fast-pitch playoff win in school history. “Having coached at Hughes, I was familiar with the success and tradition at West High,” he said. “I wanted to build on it.”

Last week’s question: Is wind power a viable solution to our dependence on oil? Why or why not? “I think it’s a partial solution but I think it would meet some resistance from environmental groups. On second thought, if the windmills were located in Washington, D.C., power could be provided to the whole country. Why? Because there’s enough hot air blowing around up there from BOTH parties to keep the wind turbine blades going indefinitely.” B.N. “It’s certainly not the whole solution. But why not explore all alternatives that are available to us?” C.A.S.

We should immediately set up a battery of windmills just outside of each of our statehouses and Congress. The volume of hot air generated should make us energy independent in no time.” T.H.

“Wind power is growing with leaps and bounds. Seldom is something been said about wind power in the paper or on television and radio.

The oil will run out or become price prohibitive. Nuclear power plants are now being built after a 30-year moratorium. How sad that the Duke (then CG&E Intended Nuclear) power plant at Moscow, Ohio, was changed over to coal when it was built. Increased hydroelectric plants and desalination plants are also needed while more alternate fuel efficient cars are developed. America has the knowledge and hopefully

“Wind power is only a small part of reducing our dependence on oil. It is limited to certain geographic areas and it only generates electricity which can provide little help for powering trucks, trains, and ships.” R.V.

“Yes, wind is a viable solution to our dependence on oil, but not by itself. “Wind along with solar, the harnessing of coastline waves and tides, biofuels, new non-polluting clean coal technology (the U.S.A. is the Saudi Arabia of coal) and a new generation of nuclear power would create a mix of cleaner, sustainable and home gown energy completely eliminating our dependence on oil.” R.O.S.

Auxiliary grateful for support Wow … where do I begin? There are so many people to thank for being part of the Mercy Hospital Western Hills auxiliary’s recent Springtime Elegance that I may as well start with the Community Press for your excellent coverage of our most successful luncheon and fashion show ever. (“Elegance of spring” April 21 issue.) What a thrill to open a full page of color photos. Thank you. What can I say about Cheviot Savings Bank, the ultimate community partner, for graciously underwriting $1,500 in cash prizes to five major award winners? Thank you so much to the bank’s Mike Wilson. Local 12’s Bob Herzog, a West Side native, who seems to be everywhere helping fundraisers, worked tirelessly for us for hours, wearing all sorts of hats, including emcee, celebrity auctioneer, dance instructor, fashion show narrator, awarder of raffle prizes and more. Thank you for infusing a high energy level to our event. I don’t suppose you can devote another whole page to Springtime Elegance, so I will ask Christopher & Banks, Western Hills Country Club, our volunteer models, patrons, hard-working committee,

donors and all those who purchased chances to please share my broad public thank you for an unbelievable job! The auxiliary Susan used the Greiner fundraiser as a Community public opportunity to present Press guest an oversized columnist check for $100,000 to the hospital, which will be used for critical imaging equipment to enhance patient care. This most recent gift continues our legacy of donating over $2 million to the hospital over the past 25 years. Because of the phenomenal outpouring of support from so many, Springtime Elegance 2010 raised over $22,000 for the auxiliary, money which will be part of future gifts to the hospital. Thank you. Susan Greiner is a member of the Mercy Hospital-Western Hills auxiliary and chairwoman of Springtime Elegance.





The United States and Russia have 95 percent of the world’s stockpile of nuclear weapons. The New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty makes mutual reductions in both the United States’ and Russia’s arsenals. Ratifying the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty is a first step towards the United States fulfilling its treaty obligations. I urge my senators to make a public statement in support of ratifying the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty during the Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference.

Yard sale passes along U.S. 50 From Friday to Sunday, May 21-23, there will be a national yard sale. It will stretch from one end of the country to the other on U.S. Route 50. The yard sale started in 2000, stretching across most of Indiana. Since that time it has grown on U. S. 50 to reach from Maine to California. It will be a kick off for the garage sale season, each year on the weekend before Memorial Day. The yard sales are not sponsored by any national organization. The promotion is being done over the Internet and by people and communities who are participating. The hope is to promote tourism along U.S. 50, and to unite many diverse communities. Organizations can conduct a fundraiser by allowing nonresidents to U.S. 50 to sell their merchandise at parking lot or other area along the road. The sales are limited only by what can be legally sold at garage sales. No one is allowed to set-up, sell, or park on the state right-ofway at any time. U.S. 50 is a very busy highway in some areas and other areas almost deserted. Safety is a major concern with cars turning on and off the highway. All sellers are asked to provide parking spaces for their customers somewhere else then the state right-of-way. The official yard sale is over three days. There are no set

It is also columnist probable that many individual households will not decide to participate until just a day or two before the sale dates, without time to advertise. The best option for buyers is to locate a participating county and then just head down the road. Individual communities and businesses along U.S. 50 are encouraged to have special promotions during this weekend. Antique and craft dealers, from all over the U.S. are welcome to join in. The Riverside Civic Club will be participating on Saturday May 22 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Gilday Recreation complex. People who live in Riverside can participate free. People who live outside the community will be asked for a $20 donation to The Riverside Civic and Welfare Club. Everyone must supply their own tents and tables and chairs. For more infor-

For better choosing, choose 7 first “The Art of Choosing” was published this past March. I heard an interview with the author, Sheena Iyengar, on NPR and ordered a copy that same afternoon. It was a fascinating read. In an interview posted on YouTube the author says, “Choice is the only tool we have to go from who we are today to who we want to be tomorrow.” That alone is good enough to put on your refrigerator or screen saver. However, in spite of the overwhelming desire we have to make choices about our lives, the fascinating thing Iyengar discovered is that we do not really want too many choices. In fact, we function best when we are presented with only seven options (give or take two). This applies to choices of life consequence like choosing our 401k plans or Medicare part D options, or choices of no consequence like samples of jam in a grocery store. Seven choices are about all we can juggle in our brains. This leads me to think of some BIG choices people make in their lives and how limiting the options before making those choices could be helpful. Do you visit 16 colleges with

your junior in high school or start with 10, narrow the choice to seven, visit four campuses and then prioritize the choices? Do you drive to 15 open houses in one real estate blitz afternoon or try a more systematic online search by price, size and neighborhood before visiting a chosen few? Do hiring managers seriously interCinda view the top 10 the top five Gorman or candidates for Community the job? This concept Press guest of the magic columnist number of seven explains the success of the local hardware store. I can cruise the aisles of my favorite hardware store, knowing that someone will be there to help me narrow my choice to what works for my situation instead of automatically driving to the highly advertised megastore that provides too many choices. A successful trip to the megastore comes from having “pre-chosen” before entering the parking lot. And don’t even get me going on

paint chip colors if I haven’t started with a color scheme in mind. Apparently, if you are hoping to make a good choice, it is best to have someone who can guide you to a limited number of better options before you decide what is best for you. Who has helped you make the best choices? A life coach, your spiritual advisor, a financial advisor, a career coach, a wise attorney, a trainer, a decorator, a teacher, a professor, a Realtor … it’s a long list, isn’t it? Look for knowledgeable, experienced people who have access to much more information than you can really handle. We all need people we can trust who can help us winnow a vast field of choices down to a manageable number of options. It is a whole lot better to make your best choice among up to seven options. Fascinating. Who knew that while we SAY we want unlimited choice, we can’t really handle it?

Some interesting observations about marriage, divorce 1. Seventy percent of those involved in a divorce have a lover at the time of the breakup. But only 15 percent of them marry that lover. 2. “If one has not in fact grown in the course of a marriage, it has been a dreadful disaster. Mere longevity in a marriage is not necessarily something to celebrate, for the question is what happened to those individuals along the way?” James Hollis, Ph. D., “The Eden Project,” page 44. 3. “In the disappointment and disillusionment that follows our first fall into and out of love, the three most common responses are pessimism, romanticism, and realism. Pessimists decide that love is an illusion and protect themselves against further disappointment by avoiding intimacy. Romantics make a habit of falling in love but cut and run when the going gets tough. Realists decide to abstain

from the excesses of romance and settle for practical, ‘mature’ (slightly gray) relationships. Each of these responses retards growth Father Lou into the fullness Guntzelman of love… It is Perspectives when we enter the zone of enchantment for the second time that we discover that love has the power to dispel despair and open us to hope.” Sam Keen “ To Love and Be Loved” pages 214-215.

reproduce our miseries with extraordinary consistency. In love relations, we approach each new relationship as an antidote to the problems of the last one, and, with daunting regularity, each new relationship turns out to be a new version of the old.” So claims psychoanalyst Stephen Mitchell in “Can Love Last?”

4. Statistics show that more second marriages break up than first ones. They show that 45 percent of first marriages, 60 percent of second marriages, and 75 percent of third marriages don’t make it these days.

6. In Belinda Luscombe’s “Time” magazine column (May 3, 2010) she discusses serial marriers. She facetiously wonders why people who are so bad at mating for life, e.g. Larry King, Elizabeth Taylor, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Mickey Rooney, etc., keep pairing up. “It’s not that they want to get divorced, or hate marriage. It’s that they like it too much, even though it’s not good for them. So, perhaps applications for, say, a fifth marriage license should be required to get therapy.”

5. “We all have a tendency to

7. “By having two lovers one

can drastically reduce one’s commitment to a relationship that one would not be able to bear in its totality. When one feels the need to deceive the beloved, this implies a lack of integration of the shadow.” Aldo Carotenuto “Eros And Pathos.” 8. Are wedding vows taken seriously, or should they be reworded: Though celebrities claim to fall in and out of love within months or a few years, and others follow their example, it’s legitimate to ask if such people actually loved each other in the first place. Viktor Frankl, M.D., writes, “The moment we experience true love, we experience it as valid forever, like a truth which we recognize as an ‘eternal truth.’ It is impossible to envision loving ‘for awhile.’” (A good argument for commitment.) 9. British philosopher Susan Mendess exposed the absurdity of

an intended short-term period of love in marriage by saying, “It is bizarre to respond to ‘Wilt thou love her, comfort her, and keep her?” with: “Well, I’ll try!” 10. “I think one of the problems in marriage is that people don’t realize what it is. They think it’s a long romantic love affair and it isn’t. Marriage has nothing to do with being happy. It has to do with being transformed, and when the transformation is realized it is a magnificent experience. But you have to submit. You have to yield. You have to give. You can’t just dictate.” Author and world mythologist Joseph Campbell in “This Business of the Gods,” page 78. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Whether buying or selling – beware of fakes How genuine is the jewelry sold on eBay and other online auction sites? A few years ago, Tiffany & Co. found nearly three quarters of items sold on eBay as “Tiffany Jewelry” were counterfeit. Tiffany sued eBay but lost because the court said eBay is not the seller. Now Tiffany goes after the sellers themselves. That’s what Anita Holmes has learned. She said she bought earrings from a friend whose husband had bought them for

came in, the box that said “Tiffany” and the bag that also said “Tiffany.” She posted the picture on eBay, offered it for sale, and immediately received an email saying they don’t look like real Tiffany items. Holmes said she immediately closed the auction – but it was too late. She received e-mails from both eBay and the lawyers for Tiffany & Co. Then she got a letter from Tiffany’s attorneys showing they meant business. “They wanted me to

her. “I liked the earrings but they were selling on eBay for around $120 and Howard Ain I could Hey Howard! have used the money more than I could the earrings,” she said. “So, I decided maybe the earrings could go to somebody else.” Holmes took a picture of the earrings, the pouch they

send them the earrings. They wanted the name of the person that had sold them to me, and they wanted $475 for damages,” she said. After calling the lawyer’s office, Holmes said, “They say it’s phony. I asked her how she knew. I’m not trying to be smart about it, I just wondered because I didn’t know. She said they know their merchandise.” Tiffany & Co. said such counterfeiting dilutes the value of its products so it’s trying to stop it as soon as it

spots these fakes. Holmes says she’s learned a big lesson. “I won’t sell on eBay anymore; it’s just not worth the worrying about this happening again. It scared me,” she said. Just to be sure, I asked Holmes to take the earrings to the Tiffany store in downtown Cincinnati. She did, and said she learned the handles on her “Tiffany” bag are different from the real thing. There’s a different size box inside, and the pouch is also differ-

ent, among other things. Holmes said she was told they were all good fakes. Holmes said she’s now sent the items to Tiffany & Co.’s lawyer along with a check for $475 for the trademark violation. Bottom line, beware of counterfeits – whether buying or selling on the Internet. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

Healthy way to prepare fish, ‘chips’

I got a bonus of sorts when I stopped at Keegan’s Seafood on Salem Avenue in Mount Washington for my fresh seafood “fix.” Outside the store was the cutest little couple selling produce, herbs and veggie plants. Mr. and Mrs. Klug come f r o m Fayettville and grow the prod u c e t h e m Rita selves. I Heikenfeld bought Rita’s kitchen some heirloom yellow tomato plants, a rhubarb plant, and some beautiful purple basil. They are there a couple times a week, so if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by to see Tom Keegan and these truck farmers. All throughout our Community Press and Recorder areas there are these kinds of folks who are independents trying to make a living doing something they love. You’ll find them outside places like Tom’s, at roadside stands, Findlay Market, or in the parking lots at

shopping malls. Anytime you can support our independent grocers and farmers, I hope you do so.

2 teaspoons garlic powder or to taste Olive oil, salt and pepper

Seafood tips from Tom Keegan

“Oil the fish, not the pan,” he says. Tom brushes oil on the fish for a healthier, tastier dish. He also says simple is better. “When you have a quality piece of seafood, you don’t need to do much other than sauté it simply in some olive oil and/or butter with your favorite seasonings.”

Pan-seared salmon with herbs


Simple pan-seared salmon with dill and lemon herbs. of salmon which has been seasoned with salt and pepper. Cook until done, turning once. Sprinkle with fresh dill and a squeeze of lemon juice.

Oven-fried french fries

Usually I oil the fish, not the pan, but in this case, I put the olive oil directly in the pan since I have aromatics with it. Here’s how I do it: Film a pan with olive oil and cook a large, peeled, smashed clove of garlic in it until it turns golden. If you have a few sprigs of lemon grass, toss them in too and saute along with the salmon. Remove garlic and lemon grass and add a piece

For Mandy Roberts, who wanted healthier french fries with lots of flavor. You need to precook the potatoes first so they’ll bake up crisp without a long time in the oven. If you want, add less garlic powder and substitute Cajun seasoning. 4 big baking potatoes, cut into big wedges, skin left on if desired 1 ⁄4 cup each: bread crumbs and shredded Parmesan mixed together

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bring water to a boil, put potatoes in, then lower to a simmer. Cook until barely tender, about five to seven minutes. Spray a baking sheet and put potatoes on in single layer. Season and toss with a bit of olive oil. Sprinkle bread crumb mixture over them, tossing to coat. Press the coating lightly so it sticks. Bake, and toss about halfway through, until crispy, about 10 to 12 minutes or so.

Stuffed bell pepper soup

I’ve had several requests for this and finally tweaked the recipe so that it’s good enough to share. Like eating a stuffed pepper, inside out! 1 pound ground beef (I use sirloin but any will do) 1 cup chopped onion 2 bell peppers, medium size, diced 1 nice rib celery, chopped 1 nice carrot, chopped 2-3 teaspoons garlic,

minced or more to taste 1-2 teaspoons dried oregano or more to taste Chili powder to taste – start with a couple teaspoons Soy sauce to taste – start with a couple tablespoons Beef broth – start with 5 cups and add more to taste 14.5 ounces diced tomatoes 1 jar, 26-ounce or so, favorite pasta sauce 1 ⁄2 cup brown or white rice – I like brown Shredded cheddar for garnish Film pan with olive oil and brown beef along with onion, peppers, celery, carrot, garlic and oregano. When beef is cooked, add everything but rice and cheddar. Bring to a gentle boil and cook about 10 minutes. Lower to a simmer, add rice, put lid on and cook until rice is done, about 15 to 20 minutes or so. Adjust seasonings and add salt and pepper to taste.

Readers want to know

“Is it OK to plant basil now?” Yes, the soil has warmed up enough and we shouldn’t be getting any more frosty nights. It’s a good time to divide perennial herbs like thyme and oregano that have gotten woody or out of bounds.

New one-day miracle for denture sufferers

Are you not eating what you want to because of difficulties with your dentures? Do they wander, shift or tilt? Are you replacing them all the time? Have you been told you don’t have enough bone for traditional dental implants? If you said yes to any of these questions, don’t hesitate to call the dental office of Dr. Christopher Omeltschenko to discuss the Mini Dental Implant System, or MDI, which can stabilize your own denture in less than two hours.

MDIs, which measure 1.8 millimeters in diameter, are basically smaller versions of traditional implants that can be placed without the surgical opening of the gums. “If you can handle visiting your dentist in the morning, having the MDI system placed in less that two hours and then going out and enjoying lunch at your favorite restaurant while you eat comfortably, talk and smile with confidence, then you’re ready for this process,” says Dr. Omeltschenko. “It’s that easy. With MDIs your denture feels secure and is held firmly in place. At about a third of the price of traditional implants, they’re extremely affordable, too,” he adds.

Students clean during service day More than 250 students, staff and faculty from Cincinnati Christian University provided more than 1,000 hours service to a variety of nonprofit organizations in the Cincinnati community April 22 during the college’s annual Community Service Day. Each year for the past five years, CCU has canceled classes and closed campus offices for one day to allow everyone on campus the opportunity to serve the Cincinnati community. Students are not required to participate, but many look forward to the opportunity to get out in the city and have fun while accomplishing good works for others. Faculty and staff also assist.

This year students helped identify the 15 sites where CCU served, forming their own work teams. Projects included painting and clean-up at City Gospel Mission and Price Hill Recreation Center, removing siding from a house slated for rehab by the Camp Washington Community Board, sorting clothing at Master Provisions Ministry in Florence, Ky., and helping the Cincinnati Fire Department with distributing smoke detectors and batteries to residents in the Price Hill community. “By participating in our annual Service Day, our students not only give a lot, but they also learn a lot,” said CCU President David Faust.

“At CCU we believe that serving your neighbor should just be a normal part of life, and this lesson is better learned by hands-on experience rather than just talking about it in the classroom,” he said. “Sometimes a paintbrush, a broom, or a hammer makes an effective teaching tool.” The annual project is part of the 40,000 hours a year CCU has documented in service-learning. CCU was recently again named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for its outstanding record of community service.


Cincinnati Christian University students Mike Smith and Bethany Smallings put faith into action painting the fence at City Gospel Mission in Cincinnati’s Over-theRhine neighborhood during CCU’s Community Service Day April 22.

Navy Airman Shamiree I. Hampton, son of Luann Hampton and Stanford Black, and his command, USS George H. W. Bush (CVN 77) homeported in Norfolk, Va., recently earned the honor to fly the Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist (ESWS) and Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist (EAWS) pennants. The pennants signify that all eligible sailors have qualified in both the ESWS and the EAWS program. In order to qualify, the sailors must demonstrate advanced knowledge in the warfare capabilities of all of the ship’s departments. To do this, the sailors are required to train in many jobs throughout the ship, where they obtain over 400 signatures stating that they understand the workings of that specific job. After these requirements are met, the sailor must then pass a 200-question written exam and pass an oral board chaired by a sen-

ior or master chief. The warfare programs were created between 1978 and 1980 to help sailors gain a level of qualification and knowledge beyond the normal level

required for advancement. Hampton is a 2008 graduate of Western Hills Design Technology High School, he joined the Navy in April 2009. Zach Schenkel College Works Painting 1(888)450-9675 (513)515-4485

Teens raise more than $1,000 for Freestore Foodbank West Side teens generated more than $800 in cash and a large barrel full of canned goods for the Freestore Foodbank at the third annual Heffstock Music Festival May 1. Eight bands and six solo musicians, mostly students at Oak Hills and Elder high schools, performed at the party room above Fogarty’s Irish Pub, at the corner of Harrison and Delmar avenues in Cheviot, to support the food bank. The show drew nearly 200 teens, along with parents of the performers. “We are grateful for the generosity of everyone involved with the Heffstock Music Festival,” said Myrita Craig, public relations spokeswoman at the Freestore Foodbank. “It is wonderful to see high school students supporting those in need in our

community,” she said. “The food and funds raised will help us to continue to meet the growing demand in our region,” said Craig. The show was organized by Bridgetown brothers Mike (20) and Nick (18) Heffron, who play in the band Birdfinder. During the show, which ran from 3 p.m. until 10:30 p.m., Birdfinder was joined on stage by teenage acts from Western Hills, Delhi and Price Hill. The bands were DeFacto Fantasy, Shallow Water, Paper Covers Rock, Galactic Impact, Oh Valiance, Blue Mercury, A City of Seven Hills and Arm the Masses. The solo acts were Mike Simpkins, Thom Foolery, Kevin Behm, Jesse Thomas, Aaron Breadon and Autumn Foster. All performers donated

their time and talents. The room was provided by Eileen Borgman, who owns Fogarty’s as well as TB Sports Awards and Custom Apparel on Harrison Avenue. “It was a lot of fun for a great cause,” said Mike Heffron. “The Freestore helps people every day, and we wanted to support them.” The Heffron brothers started Heffstock in 2008 by inviting local garage bands to play an impromptu show in their father’s garage in Cheviot. They sold tickets and were surprised by the number of teens they drew. Last year the show was held in Mack. For this year’s Heffstock, they distributed fliers, sent press releases, and used Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and other social media tools to create a stir in the community.


The band Birdfinder plays at the Heffstock Music Festival on May 1. The members are (left to right): Mike Heffron (20, Bridgetown), Chris Gable (18, Bridgetown), Rio Van Risseghem (18, Delhi), Nick Heffron (18, Bridgetown), Justin Hensley (18, Dent). “We were amazed by how many people came,” said Nick Heffron. “Everybody stepped up-the musicians and the fans. It was a

great show.” The brothers plan to do Heffstock again next year. Birdfinder will continue to support worthy causes

when they play, along with The Menus, at The Help Haiti-Run for Their Lives 5k race May 16 at Oak Hills High School.

Conference discusses teachers’ pay together to discuss one of the hottest topics facing the educational community today,” said Susan Verschoor, Leadership Cincinnati education project committee member and program co-chair for the conference. “Very few of these kinds of events have been held in the Midwest.

“Youth is only a state of mind” Someone once asked, “must the mood, manner and motives of youth fade away with the years?” Before you answer quickly-look around... You will see plenty of proof that youth is not always measured in years.Youth need not be a time of life. It should be a state of mind.Youth, regardless of years, should be an adventure in life. When enthusiasm for life exists, wrinkled skin will not wrinkle a mind.Youth only fades away when worry, doubt, distrust, fear and despair burden the body and bow the head. Youth remains when life is faced cheerfully; when a mind wonders and is amazed with the stars, the sun, the moon and the grandeur of God’s world.Youth stays on with an attitude of today is another day and what can be done with it. Youth is faith and hope. It is enjoying beauty, being of good cheer. Cast these out and youth and maturity are gone. Retain them and youth remains. Faith, hope appreciation of beauty and good cheer... all can be regained. Yes, the fountain of youth can only be found in a state of mind... no other place... Marilyn Holt

Each year, the Garden Media Group does a lot of surveying and research to develop a list of gard e n i n g trends for the upcoming year. And I Ron Wilson must say In the it has garden that been very interesting to watch these trends over the years, to see how gardening and styles of gardening have changed (Baby Boomers, Gen X&Y, economy, etc., are all a part of the trend changing factors). And for 2010, GMG says the trend emerging is: A return to Main Street American values. “Just look around you,” says Susan McCoy, trend spotter and outdoor living expert. “Our relationship with money has changed. Hard work, common sense and a return to small town values are causing a shift in priorities from boardrooms to backyards. “According to our 2010 Garden Trends Report, the rewards of growing your own – from basil to berries to flowers – are boundless.” So, what are those 2010 trends? 1) Main Street is in and

Enjoying the 2010 April Affair are incoming Cincinnati Symphony Club President Jan McConville with event co-chairwoman Mary Dean Schaumloffel, of Western Hills.

Enjoying the 2010 April Affair are Rosemary Kelly Conrad and Rosemary Schlachter, both live in Western Hills.


Symphony club has grand time at Affair The Cincinnati Symphony Club presented their annual April Affair fashion show April 8 at the Kenwood Country Club. This year’s theme focused on “Designer Fashions on a Dime” and featured fashions available at the Snooty Fox. Donna Speigel, owner of the Snooty Fox, provided commentary for the fashion show. The event celebrated longtime Cincinnati Symphony Club member Charlotte Deupree, a prominent professional model, who has volunteered each year for the April Affair, organizing models for the many stores whose fashions have been showcased throughout the years. The Fashion Show included a shop-

ping boutique featuring jewelry from the Silver Lady and Mary Nippert Jewelers; hand-made one-of-a- kind plush toys from Abbydid, crafts from Ten Thousand Villages and JoAnne Abel. Event proceeds benefit programs of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. The Cincinnati Symphony Club was established 87 years ago to support Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra programs (including the Lollipop concerts for children), to collaborate with other Greater Cincinnati music organizations, and to promote the interest and understanding of music in our community. The efforts of Symphony Club volunteers, along with business and cultural organizations’ support, has made April Affair a successful perennial fund raiser.

Easter Seals can help with youth education Out of school youth ages 16-21 receive assistance in uncovering their personal employment goals and desires and connecting to resources to achieve success. Easter Seals Work Resource Center’s Out of School Youth Services supports youth in achieving high school graduation or completion of the GED while also helping them to connect to employment and secondary education options. Youth receive support and assistance in finding summer employment, developing work readiness skills, exploring career interests and internships and applying to college. “It’s up to the youth to do the work, what we offer them is support and guidance to help them navigate through the transition to school or work,” says Debbie Smith, youth services

director. “Once they decide what they want to do we help them develop a path to get there.” Studies indicate that less than 46 percent of the nation’s young high school dropouts were employed during 2008 (22 percent more likely to be unemployed than their high school graduate counterparts). Additionally, in 20062007 nearly one in 10 young male high school dropouts was incarcerated on a given day versus fewer than one in 33 high school graduates. Interested youth can contact Easter Seals WRC at 513-475-6791 to speak with a youth specialist about eligibility and enrollment. Easter Seals WRC’s Out of School Youth Services are located at the Walnut Hills Center at 2601 Melrose Ave. in Walnut Hills.
