20 years worth of history Price Hill Historical Society celebrates anniversary

By Kurt Backscheider

Betty Wagner said she likes to see peoples’ faces light up when they walk into the Price Hill Historical Society and discover just how much of the neighborhood’s history the organization has preserved. “When people come in here they are absolutely amazed at what we’ve accumulated and how it’s all displayed,” said Wagner, treasurer of the historical society and a lifelong Price Hill resident. “I can’t tell you how many times people walk through here and say, ‘I had no idea you had all this.’” The collection of photographs, newspapers, clothing, furniture and high school yearbooks the society displays in its museum didn’t accumulate overnight. This year the society is celebrating 20 years of preserving Price Hill’s past. Society members are marking the anniversary with a celebration at 6 p.m. Friday, June 18, at Holy Family Church. The event features dinner, live music by The Cincinnati Dancing Pigs jug band, a vintage fashion show, quilt exhibit and raffle, basket raffles and split-thepot. Cost is $20 per person and proceeds will go toward the continued renovation, operation and preservation of the society’s headquarters building and museum at 3640 Warsaw Ave. “This is to benefit the society and all our needs here,” said Valda Moore, the society’s secretary. “And we have many needs. “We own this building and it takes a lot of money to operate it,” she said. Since buying the two-story building, built in the 1920s and that once housed a Provident Bank, the society has made improvements to the exterior facade and lighting, repaired the roof, painted, upgraded the electrical system, renovated the second floor to allow for more

She said the society regularly works with school groups, scout groups and area high school and college students who stop by seeking information on families, buildings, businesses, schools, churches and organizations that have existed in Price Hill. The society also sponsors the annual Price Hill Day at Coney Island, helped bring back the

Price Hill Thanksgiving Day Parade and teams up with Price Hill Will and the East Price Hill Business Association to organize the Cultural Heritage Festival in East Price Hill, Meyer said. Wagner, who has been with the society since it started, said it’s been unbelievable to watch it grow over the past two decades. “We started out with one member and now we have 615 household members throughout the United States, which is extraordinary,” she said. “We’re really proud of the fact we’re 20 years old.” Those interested in attending the anniversary celebration can call 251-2888 for reservation information.

Seton students to make ‘kindest cut’ By Kurt Backscheider

Online community


Seton High School Principal Susan Gibbons said it makes her proud to walk through the school hallways and see so many students with long, flowing hair. It’s going to make her even more proud to see all those long ponytails get chopped off. More than 325 Seton students, alumnae and friends will fill the floor of the school’s gymnasium Friday, May 21. They will participate in the largest simultaneous hair cut in history for Pantene Beautiful Lengths, a program of the Procter & Gamble shampoo brand that makes free wigs for women battling cancer and other illnesses. “I think it’s such a great project, and anyone can get involved,” Gibbons said. “So many people are affected by cancer and this is a nice way to make a difference.” Seton sophomore Lauren Tepe knows firsthand how important wigs are to cancer patients. She lost her hair while undergoing chemotherapy treatments for lung cancer when she was an eighth-grader at Our Lady of Visitation School in Green Township.


Seton High School sophomore Lauren Tepe, center, who is a cancer survivor, will cut the ponytail of her friend Anna Combs, far left, during the simultaneous hair cut event the school is doing for Pantene Beautiful Lengths. Seton Principal Susan Gibbons, far right, is also donating her hair to the organization, which makes free wigs for women suffering from cancer or other illnesses. “Losing my hair was the hardest part because it’s so noticeable,” said Tepe, who has been cancer free for two years.

Although she’s not donating her hair to Beautiful Lengths, she’s participating in the event. She is going to take the scissors to the ponytail of her friend, Anna Combs. Combs was by Tepe’s side through all her treatments and has been growing her hair out in honor of Tepe and her fight against cancer. “It was hard watching her go through it. Her chemotherapy was in the summer and there were a lot of things she had to miss out on,” Combs said. “I’ve been wanting to donate my hair in honor of her for a while.” Tepe said she looks forward to taking part in the cut and helping give women an opportunity to feel pretty and normal. This is the second time Seton has organized a cutting event. In 2006, more than 235 participants made the “kindest cut of all” and donated their hair to Beautiful Lengths. “We thought 50 girls was a lofty goal the first time. It was stunning to me to have more than 200 sign up,” said Gibbons, who has been growing her hair out since last spring and will lead this year’s event. “That cut was really emotional for me. It

Police sweep nets 27 in Price Hill Seton Gannett News Service Cincinnati police, armed with indictments against 53 accused drug dealers and violent criminals, swept through the neighborhood May 13, looking for members of the so-called “Slushville” gang. The first round of busts now complete, a leader in the covert operation said those arrested are no more than drug dealers and criminals who don’t respect people or property – not an organized gang. “I don’t want to validate them … It’s not a structured organization with a hierarchy,” said Cincinnati police Capt. Russ Neville, commander of Cincinnati Police District 3. “People have been calling themselves gangs for years – I’m not saying we don’t have them – but (gang activity) is not what we have here.” The arrests are the result of persistence by concerned residents in East Price Hill, Neville said, and after “probably 100” undercover

drug purchases set up by the p o l i c e department there was enough evid e n c e Neville against 53 individuals to indict them on criminal charges. Twenty-seven individuals were arrested in four hours May 13 and police were continuing their efforts to round up the rest, Neville said. Many of the arrests took place on Ross Avenue, Mount Hope Avenue and parts of Warsaw Avenue, Neville said. Neville said the alleged traffickers were peddling heroin, cocaine and marijuana. Drugs, cash and at least three handguns were recovered during the operation, he said. Along the course of the afternoon an additional 12 arrests were made for unconnected crimes, mostly open warrants, Neville said. One of the men was the

suspect in a shooting that occurred on Easter. He will now face felonious assault charges. “This operation was so well constructed by Sgt. Eric Sierra,” Neville said. “We had no problem in any of the arrests, no uses of force.” Neville also complimented his predecessor, Capt. Kim Frey, who coordinated the operation before the police department went through a series of reassignments three weeks ago. But mainly, he said concerned citizens deserve a pat on the back. “I don’t think this would have happened without the community,” Neville said. And the community is equally grateful that the police took their strife seriously, said Ken Rothman, a trustee with the East Price Hill Improvement Association. “I’m just happy as heck that it’s finally taken place and they’ve gotten these guys off the street,” said Rothman, who acts as EPHIA’s liaison with East

Price Hill Citizens on Patrol. “(Crime) has been building in this part of town for over a year.” Residents have recently complained in larger numbers to Rothman and other members of the community council about witnessing drug deals and violence. “Mostly people are made to feel very uncomfortable … what I would call intimidation,” Rothman said. “And the litter problem has been just horrendous. People move to one street for 90 days until they are evicted. Then they move a few blocks away. We know wherever they move there will be trouble.” He’s hopeful that the efforts of the police, coupled with work done by groups like EPHIA, Price Hill Will, the Price Hill Rec Center and Imago, will make a difference in the streets of East Price Hill. “I hope the younger people who were looking up to (those arrested), emulating their lifestyle, will start looking up to better role models,” Rothman said.

was such a powerful moment to see all the girls lined up on the gym floor. “It was overwhelming,” she said. Gibbons, who will have her hair cut by Seton alumna and breast cancer survivor Joline Adams Lecture, said she expects this year’s cut to be emotional as well. “I walk around and I see all this hair and I think, ‘They are really doing it,’” Gibbons said. “It makes me

so proud. That’s just us. It’s what we’re all about.” The program will include presentations from the American Cancer Society, breast cancer survivors, students affected by cancer and Pantene representatives. All participants will be able to have their hair cut and styled by a professional stylist after the simultaneous cut. Eighty-five stylists have volunteered their services.

Dominic students get crash course in business By Heidi Fallon

Stosh Grozek’s career plans can be summed in two words – ice cream. Grozek and nine of his St. Dominic School sixth-grade classmates on the Enrichment Team recently went behind the scenes at five Delhi Township businesses. One of those stops was the Sweets and Eats owned by Carl Davidson. “I learned a lot and the ice cream is really good,” Grozek said. “That’s what I want to do is own an ice cream shop.” While he admitted he might just eat most of his future profits, “It looks like fun.” Mary White, teacher and Enrichment Team leader, said the aim was to show her students how small businesses along the pike operate. Proving the adage that location is key, White said the project was limited to

places they could walk to and from during the 50minute team time. They also visited Bianco Tailoring, Robben Florist and Garden Center, Brinker Animal Hospital and the Delhi Township Fire Department’s Greenwell Avenue station. “I thought I wanted to be a veterinarian until this,” said Abby Nutter. “I don’t think I could put a pet to sleep, but Dr. Brinker said it’s the last gift you can give your pet if they’re really sick and in pain.” Classmate Nora Hibbard said the trip to Brinker’s also taught her “you have to be really good in math and science to be a vet.” The students said they didn’t even know what a tailor was until they stopped by Joe Bianco’s shop. “He makes custom clothes and does the alterations for the Bengals,” said a now more knowledgeable Blake Bethel.

YMCA seeking nominations for those who give back

By Kurt Backscheider

Maggie Schott said the Oak Hills Swim & Racquet Club continues to fulfill the mission its original founders intended. She said the founders wanted to establish and maintain an organization in Green Township that would meet the civic, social and recreational needs of residents. “The club was started for the good of the community and to provide social interaction for the families around here,” said Schott, who has been a club member for 37 years. “It certainly has become that.” This year the club, which is tucked away amongst the trees and atop a hill on Muddy Creek Road, is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Opening day is Saturday, May 29, and the party to kick-off the club’s golden anniversary season is set for Memorial Day, Monday, May 31. Schott, the membership chairwoman for the club’s board of trustees, said the Memorial Day party will include a variety of games for the children and an ice cream social. Rick Cox, president of the club’s board of trustees,

The club will have tween nights twice a month for junior high students, an adults only night in June, a ladies only night in August and dive-in movie nights once a month. Labor Day weekend, the club’s final weekend of the season, will feature a “pull the plug on the pool” party, Cox said. “We have a pretty busy social schedule to get everyone together to celebrate 50 years,” he said. Oak Hills Swim & Racquet Club is a private club with a membership capped at 284 families, and a waiting list to join. The club opened in the summer of 1960, and in addition to the pool and one of the region’s few remaining high dive boards, the facility includes lighted clay tennis courts, two platform tennis courts, a picnic deck, a new concession stand and updated

locker areas. Cox said they have active men’s and women’s tennis leagues and the club fields a competitive swim and dive team each summer, swimming against other clubs in the Private Pool Swim League. Several former swim team members have gone on to swim in college, he said. Schott said, “We’ve had a lot of fun up here.” She said she has great memories of bringing her daughter to the club when she was younger, and now she’s bringing her grandchildren to the club and making new memories with them. “I just love it here,” she said. “I like the energy up here.” Cox, who’s been a member for five years, said the members are proud of the club and its 50-year history. “It’s a hidden gem,” he said. “It’s a great place to kick back and enjoy life on the West Side of Cincinnati.”

Delhi team hoping tourney will lead to Cooperstown By Heidi Fallon

Like a lot of enthusiastic baseball players, they have their eyes set on Cooperstown. The 12-year-olds on the J. B. Yeager team aren’t necessarily hoping for a spot in the Hall of Fame. Their more immediate dream is playing in a tournament there in July. The team’s coaches, father and son Tony and T. J. Cappel, have been busy coming up with a game plan to make that happen.

The elder Cappel said the 13 boys on his team come from Delhi Township as well Bridgetown and Price Hill. “We are a select baseball team made up of West Side kids,” he said. “We’ve been invited to play in the annual summer tournament in Cooperstown, but it’s so expensive to get there.” The team has been having a variety of fundraisers and accepting donations.

team’s yard sale. “We’ve got wonderful sponsors like JTM and Hader Heating and Cooling, but it costs $750 per person for the trip,” Tony said. The team is having a 16-team tournament Memorial Day weekend aimed at both fun and profit. It will be at Delhi Township Park, where the team regularly plays. It will start at 5 p.m. Friday, May 29. “We’ll play basically all day on Saturday starting at 8:30 a.m. with the championship games at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.. on Sunday,” Tony said. While there is no charge to come watch the games, the team will be selling concessions and T-shirts, and will have a sports memorabilia raffle. Not all the money they make will stay with the team. Tony and T. J. said part of the proceeds will go to the Delhi Township

Police Department’s canine unit. Another share of the money is going to be donated to a 12-year-old Kentucky boy who is recovering from injuries suffered when he was struck in the head with a

baseball. While the Cappels don’t know the boy, Tony said he can’t imagine what his family must be going through. “The medical bills are huge and we just want to help,” he said.

A donation also will be given to the Sinai Shrine Temple. Instead of money, the team is showing their appreciation to the township’s recreation department by organizing a clean sweep of the park before and after the Memorial Day tournament. “We couldn’t do what we’re doing without the township and Sandy Monahan, parks director,” Tony said. “They have been wonderful in helping us out.” Even though father and son admit they don’t always agree on their coaching strategies, they do have a mutual respect. “I guess I always want to see the underdog have a chance,” T. J. said. “He’s more interested in winning.” His father said he respects his son’s ideas and relishes the time they spend together on and off the bench. “He helps a lot and the kids look up to him,” Tony said. “They will tell him things they won’t tell me and he does have good ideas.” Tony, who coached for the Delhi Athletic Association for eight years, asked his son to join him last season. This year, they’ve coached their team to a 127 record. Also an avid soccer player, T. J. said he wants to play baseball in college once he graduates from Oak Hills High School.

Who has time for heart surgery? But my doctor explained robotic-assisted surgery. It’s highly effective and minimally invasive. And surgeons at Good Samaritan Hospital are robotic experts, teaching doctors from The Cleveland Clinic and Johns Hopkins. All of this is a major comfort to me and my family.

Valesquez, Konkoly lead charge Highlander boys set three records in 2010 By Anthony Amorini

Senior Izak Valesquez and freshman Kevin Konkoly insured longtime Oak Hills track coach Jerry Dean won’t soon forget the 2010 campaign as the record-breaking pair posted new high marks for the Highlanders. For Valesquez, the senior standout dropped 14 seconds from his previous personal best while breaking a 39-year-old Highlander record in the 3,200-meter run with his time of 9:25.33 at the Best of the West meet Thursday, May 6. Before Valesquez’s

No. 1 Mercy advances to the sectional finals to face No. 2 Kings Tuesday, May 18, at Lakota East. If victorious, Mercy advances to the district finals to face the winner of Wilmington vs. Ross Saturday, May 22, at Franklin at 11 a.m.



Oak Hills freshman Kevin Konkoly runs in the 100 at the Greater Miami Conference track meet Wednesday, May 12. He broke a 4-year-old record in the 100 at the Ross Invitational April 30, with a time of 10.89.

9:25.33, the previous Highlander record in the 3,200 stood at 9:31 for nearly four decades. “He blew it out of the water,” Dean said of the record. “I wasn’t totally surprised (with the 9:25.33), but I was just elated for him and so proud. “With as hard as he’s been working, it’s a just reward for him,” Dean added. Valesquez’s impressive time in the 3,200 was one of three new records for the Highlanders this spring. Konkoly broke a 4-yearold record in the 100 with a time of 10.89 at the Ross Invitational Friday, April 30, despite starting the season as a 200 specialist. “He started out just running the 200 and sprint relays. But as the year progressed, we realized he had more potential than we thought,” Dean said. “We started putting him in the 100 and he became comfortable with it quickly.” At the Ross Invitational, Konkoly twice broke the Highlanders’ old record in the 100 at 10.98 with a 10.89 in a preliminary heat and a 10.91 in the finals. The Highlanders also set a new record in the 4x100 relay at a time of 44.6 with the four-man team including Konkoly, junior Alex Saulsbury, junior Jake Allison and senior Zach Rebenn. “This is my fifth decade in track and this has been one of the smoothest, most enjoyable groups I’ve ever worked with,” Dean said, who joined the Highlander track program in 1978.


Oak Hills High School senior Corie Cartmell performs in the 110 hurdles May 12 at the Greater Miami Conference track meet. “These guys are a fun, dedicated group. “I didn’t even know we had a spring break because everyone was there every day,” Dean joked. Though Dean is looking forward to Konkoly and junior Cody Lacewell returning in 2011, the coach is

also lamenting the end of his senior’s careers and specifically Valesquez and fellow seniors Corie Cartmell (sprints, hurdles, long jump) and Alex Adams (pole vault). However, the entire postseason still remains for the Highlander seniors to con-

tinue forging memories for themselves and Dean. Oak Hills travels to Winton Woods for the Division I District Championships on Wednesday, May 19, and Thursday, May 21. Qualifiers will advance to regionals which is followed by the Division I State Championships in Columbus. “Corey and Izak score about 20 points each at every meet. Whenever we score 100 points, about 50 of those come from the seniors,” Dean said. “We will miss them all immensely. For now, I’m just trying to enjoy it.” With that said, Konkoly and Lacewell give Dean good reason to be optimistic about the future. Lacewell was ranked No. 2 in the Greater Miami Conference at 1:58.90 – just behind Lakota West’s Ty Brewer at 1:58.40 – in the 800 as of Wednesday, May 12. Lacewell won the title in the 800 at the large-scale Coaches’ Classic. “Lacewell is a hammer in the half mile,” Dean said. “With him and Konkoly coming back, we will have a nice little nucleus next season.”

Highlander boys take 4th at GMC Finals The Oak Hills Highlander boys’ track team took fourth place with 68 points at the Greater Miami Conference finals this spring. The GMC finals were hosted by Mason Wednesday, May 12, and Friday, May 14, with the Comets taking first place overall

for the boys at 170 points. The Highlander boys finished ninth in 2008 and took sixth place in the GMC in 2009. The Highlanders’ 2010 score of 68 represents a 26-point increase since last season. Senior Izak Zalesquez scored big points for Oak Hills with a

second-place finishes in the 1,600-meter run (4:24.11) and the 3,200 (9:47.06). Junior Cody Lacewell took second place in the 800 at 1:58.04. The Lady Highlanders finished in 10th place with the girls from Mason winning the GMC title.

Mustangs win CMAC for 3rd time in 4 years By Tony Meale

For the third time in four years, the Western Hills High School baseball team won the Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference. The Mustangs, which finished third in the CMAC a season ago, went 10-1 in league play. “Our No. 1 goal was to win the conference,” head coach James Holland said. “Every conference game we felt like we were the team to beat.” In non-league games, however, Western Hills went 1-16. “It was a lack of focus,” Holland said. “When we play in conference games, these guys are playing against their buddies, and they want to get the best of their buddies.” Western Hills’ non-conference woes carried over to the postseason, as the No. 26 Mustangs fell 18-0 to No. 27 Edgewood in firstround action May 13. Junior pitcher Juan Warren, who was first-team allleague this year, took the loss despite allowing just three earned runs; the Mustangs, which started four freshmen, committed 11

5-1 entering the fifth inning but allowed 12 runs in the final three frames; they lost 13-5. “We have the talent to play against any team in the city,” Holland said. The Mustangs return several key contributors next season, including sophomore centerfielder Andre Murray. “As a freshman, he didn’t get a lot of varsity playing time,” Holland said. “But this year defensively, he completely exceeded our expectations. He’s one of the fastest outfielders I’ve seen (as a coach). He cov-

ers so much ground, and he has a good arm; he threw out three or four runners at the plate this year.” Sophomore catcher Ethan Hurston, meanwhile, was the team’s second-leading hitter, and junior pitcher Aaron Ernst impressed Holland with his leadership. “There was a stretch where our staff was really depleted, and Aaron would start two games a week and pitch relief in one,” Holland said. “He really put the staff on his shoulders.” One player Western Hills will lose is senior James Tucker, who was a secondteam all-league selection. “He played second base since he was a freshman, and he moved to third base this year,” Holland said. “He took one for the team.” Other contributors included seniors Chris Kunkenmoeller and Alex Lawson; juniors Antwuane Blackwell, Demetrius Farmer and Chris Harris; and freshmen Jordan Saunders, Dailyn Stevenson, Cameron Washington and Levi Wolf. “We’ve got a lot of young guys who are coming back,” Holland said. “I’m already excited for next year.”

Rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of students at Mother of Mercy High School as they took part in the school’s 35th annual Walk for Mercy on April 23. With a theme of “To Westwood … and Beyond,” many students walked as their favorite super heroes, complete with capes and other garb. The walk raises money for tuition assistance, scholarships and the school’s general fund. From left, Kate Moster, Renee Reder, Kim Schloemer, Megan Humphrey and Melanie Bosse are all smiles as they walk in the rain.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question: What are your memories of your high school prom? “A really great time with a really neat date. My school was small so everyone knew everyone else and we always had great times together. I hope to see some of them when I attend my 50th graduation reunion next month.” B.N. “Not very pleasant. I was a skinny kid from a poor family in a small town, in a small parochial high school, and I wasn’t a jock, nor was I particularly good with girls. So I didn’t really plan to go to the prom. “However, the nun in charge of these things decided that she was going to assemble all the boys and girls who didn’t have prom dates in the gym, have them face each other, and pick a date. “It’s been too many years, so I can’t remember if we were just to pick the girl across from us or not, but I think that’s what it was. “My date is now a nun herself.” B.B. “I didn’t go – the whole formal dance concept just didn’t appeal to me. On the night of my senior prom I went to the movies with my boyfriend – who for the past 38 years has been my husband. “And we would still rather go to the movies than to a formal dinner or dance!” J.S.B.

Every week The Community Press asks readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answer to westnews@community with Chatroom in the subject line. “I have very distinct memories of my high school prom because I took two different girls! It was a two-day event: the first day was the dance, and the next was a boat ride. Traditionally, the same girl went to both. “By the time prom came up, I had decided I wanted to date another girl I had met. I can chalk this up to high school immaturity, but I broke up with girlfriend No. 1 after taking her to the prom dance, and started dating girlfriend No. 2 by going on the boat ride the next day, never missing a beat. “I can remember how surprised and amazed all my friends were because nobody did that! “It was a terrible thing to do, but I was 17. Needless to say, I also broke up with girlfriend No. 2 and married someone totally different. “Many years later I still feel badly that I did what I did. Carol, if you’re out there, I am so sorry!” R.H. “Prom? Weird dress, painful shoes, no sleep, nice date.” L.A.D.






Seton High School should protect true Catholic values In a Delhi Press article May 12, we read that being a Seton student today “means the same” as it did in 1930. Holding on to truths taught for so many years can be difficult in this changechoice-diversity era. On April 19, Cincinnati Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr and other sponsors withdrew support for a national Violence against Women conference at Seton on April 24. Local, pro-life community members registered complaints; the archbishop took action – the conference keynote speaker was pro-choice and a recognized lesbian feminism advocate. Consequent to the archbishop’s action, conference organizers found another keynote speaker, made appropriate remarks, and the show went on. However, the approved conference program was another matter. It presented a women’s choir dedicated to musical excellence, social change and diversity. “We are feminist women of varied ages, races, and ethnicities with a range of musical abilities, political interests, and life experiences. We are women loving women; we are heterosexual, lesbian and bisexual women united in song.” All other conference workshops presented expected topics – Alliance for Immigrant Women;

The program’s marketing of lesbianism starkly stands out and could easily be interpreted as advocating for a position on homosexuality that is against Catholic teaching. Why was this approved? To use a program quote from the UN Secretary General, that “violence against women cannot be tolerated … The time to change is now. Only by standing together and speaking out can we make a difference.” Is it not a violation against young Catholic women to advocate positions against Catholic

Social Security commits to its new Open Government plan The Social Security Administration recently released its Open Government plan, reflecting the agency’s commitment to increase transparency, expand opportunities for citizen participation and collaboration, and make open government sustainable at Social Security. Three flagship initiatives are highlighted in the plan: • Spanish-Language retirement estimator; • Online service enhancement; and • Online life-expectancy calculator. Social Security’s Spanish-language retirement estimator will be the agency’s and the federal government’s first-ever non-English interactive Internet application – a tool that furthers transparency by offering the Spanish-speaking public an opportunity to get instant, personalized estimates of future retirement benefits. Last year, more than 3 million people used the English-language version of this popular online service at the website w w w. s o c i a l s e c u r i t y. g o v /

estimator. As part of its online service enhancement initiative, Social Security will unveil a new service-channeling tool that Jan will help people Demmerle more easily find information Community the and services Press Guest they seek at Columnist A key feature will be the opportunity to go online to schedule an inoffice appointment for those who are unable to use our online services to conduct all of their business. This idea was submitted by Christie Dickson, an employee of Social Security, and was one of the finalists for the president’s SAVE award. In developing this tool, the agency will collaborate with members of the public as well as with industry experts. The agency also is developing an online life-expectancy calcula-

tor – a simple, but important tool to assist the public with retirement planning. Many people substantially underestimate life expectancy and this new online service will add a measure of accuracy to retirement planning by providing average life expectancies at different ages based on the person’s gender and date of birth, and drawing on assumptions provided in the annual Social Security Trustees’ report. Social Security encourages feedback on its open government plan.

Stepping out just a little may improve your health With the daylight hours increasing, spring is the perfect time to make a commitment to becoming more physically active. News headlines continue to remind us that Americans do not get enough physical activity – a lifestyle that can lead to serious health consequences. A sedentary lifestyle, along with poor nutrition and tobacco use, is linked to some of the leading chronic diseases impacting our nation’s health including diabetes, heart disease and obesity. Regular physical activity

reduces the risk for many diseases, helps control weight, and strengthens muscles, bones, and joints. Take advantage of the extra daylight to walk around the neighborhood, take a family bike ride or play a game of badminton. Getting the necessary amount of physical activity can be achieved without an expensive gym membership or fancy equipment. Physical activity guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate

adults need to do two types of physical activity for optimal health. Every week, adults need at least: 30 minutes of moderateintensity aerobic activity on five or more days; and musclestrengthening activities on two or more days. While this might seem like a lot of time, it is easier to attain by spreading out physical activity throughout the entire week. You can even break it up into 10minute increments during each day.

Even 10 minutes of continuous physical activity – such as brisk walking or dancing – can be a health benefit. Keep in mind that some physical activity is better than none at all. Hamilton County Public Health and our partners are working to implement sustainable changes to improve the health of our community.

Mercy honors beloved principal’s service By Kurt Backscheider

Mercy alumna Lynne Williams places a an Irish angel pin on Sister Nancy Merkle’s lapel during an open house the Mercy hosted to honor Merkle for her 20 years of leading the school. Merkle is retiring as principal June 30.

Sister Nancy Merkle, RSM, said she’s blessed to have been able to help young women grow up to be strong leaders and happy people who strive to be their best. Merkle, the principal at Mother of Mercy High School, is retiring June 30 after serving two decades at the helm. Hundreds of her friends, colleagues, former students, fellow Mercy alumnae and members of the Mercy family gathered at an open house Monday, May 3, to honor Merkle for her service to the school and to wish her well in retirement. Merkle said it’s been inspiring to see students graduate and carry the Mercy spirit and values with them as they move on to college, establish successful careers, serve their communities and raise families. “Mercy students make such a difference in the world,” she said. “I love watching them grow up and incorporate the core Mercy values as part of their everyday lives.” She said she’s not only been blessed to work with great students,

Merkle is retiring June 30. but she’s also been fortunate to work with a tremendous faculty and staff. She said the teachers and administrators are compassionate, they embrace Catholic education and they’re committed to providing students the best education possible.

“It’s the spirit of the school,” she said. “It’s been a great privilege to be a part of it and help lead this school.” “I’ve enjoyed everything. I’ve loved my time at Mercy, It’s a wonderful place in every way,” Merkle said.

Envy is as common as love or anger Whereas envy is the pain felt when another is perceived as possessing Father Lou some perGuntzelman so boj e nc t ,, Perspectives quality, or status that one does not have. Webster’s dictionary defines envy as “the painful or resentful awareness of an advantage enjoyed by another joined with a desire to possess the same advantage,” to which some psychologists would add, “and often the desire to destroy the one perceived as possessing that advantage.” What are some examples of envy? It is possible to churn with envy when we perceive another as more successful, better-looking, more popular, wealthier, having a better body or youthful age, having a very desirable spouse, an influential job, higher social status, or be favored by a parent or boss, and the beat goes on. A woman so envied her sister that the predominant

motive in her life was not doing what she really enjoyed, but doing things to overtake her sister. A sports-minded man was resentful of certain athletes and their well-developed bodies. He even rejoiced when they were injured or publicly embarrassed (schadenfreude in German, “taking pleasure in others’ misfortunes”). Usually the envied person does nothing to deserve the envy of another. He or she is not responsible for the envious person’s perceived lack of the envied quality. In fact, the envied person may possess the quality because they worked hard to achieve it. To try and understand our perplexing emotion of envy, we need to see how it stems from our human desire for fulfillment. In “Urgings Of The Heart,” authors Au and Cannon offer helpful insights: “Whenever we perceive something to be a good, we are attracted to it. We feel a desire to be close to it or possess it … Envy is intrinsically related to goodness. What we each come to value and desire as good is determined by our unique

personality. “What is desirable to one person may not be so to another. Envy enters our hearts when we despair of ever receiving the good things we desire… and our despair becomes fertile soil for envy, which flourishes whenever hope is lacking.” Looked at spiritually, envy represents a refusal to accept one’s humaness and limitations. By focusing enviously on what others

have and we lack, we betray ourselves by preferring the being of another to our own. The spiritual failure of envy lies in the fact that rejecting who we are carries with it a certain rejection of the God who created and fashions us. “In Christian tradition, Satan has been identified as the archetypal envier because he could not accept his rightful place in the

order of creation,” writes Au and Cannon. “That he was not God, creating a kingdom of his own where he could reign.” Envy must be replaced with gratitude. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@ or P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242.

Envy is a little bacteria living within us. It can remain small and cause minimal trouble or spread and poison the whole person. Envy and resentment can even be a cause of international or national conflict. Poorer nations may feel it toward wealthier ones, or one race or religion toward another. Psychoanalysts consider envy in making their analysis because it can be an underlying factor in relationship problems between spouses, parents, siblings, and friends. Envy is a difficult emotion to identify and integrate. “Envy is so shameful a passion that we never dare acknowledge it,” says La Rochefoucauld. After decades of hearing individuals’ confessions, I could count on one hand the people who ever mentioned envy as a personal sin of theirs. Jealousy is often mistaken for envy. They’re not the same. Jealousy is mainly concerned about love. The jealous person fears losing someone they love to a rival.

Summer salad is a cornbread winner 1 package, 81⁄2 ounces, cornbread/muffin mix 1 can, 4 ounces, chopped green chilies, undrained or 1 to 2 jalapeños, chopped 1 teaspoon cumin 1 ⁄2 teaspoon oregano 1 cup each mayonnaise and sour cream 1 envelope ranch salad dressing mix 2 cans, 15 ounces each, Great Northern beans, drained 2 cans, 15 ounces each, whole kernel corn; drained or equivalent frozen corn, thawed 4 good-sized tomatoes, chopped 1 bell pepper, chopped 1 large bunch green onions, chopped 12 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled 3 cups shredded cheddar

way, whether remembering a fallen veteran, family or friends. The cornbread salad recipe is one of my most requested for this holiday, so here it is, in time for you to put it on the menu.

Cornbread salad for Memorial Day

One that’s worth the calories. Don’t be put off by the long list of ingredients. It’s easy to make.


I enjoy starting out Memorial Day with my family, going to Mass at St. Philomena church in Clermont County. It’s an outdoor mass, weather permitting. Afterwards, there’s a gun salute to the fallen veterans. We visit my parents’ graves and put vases of fresh flowers on them. The grandkids help me plant sprigs of Mom’s heirloom mint. It’s a meaningful tradition. I know many of you celebrate Memorial Day this

Prepare cornbread according to package directions but stir in chilies, cumin, oregano. Pour into sprayed 8-inch pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool. Combine mayonnaise, sour cream and dressing mix; set aside. Crumble half the cornbread into a 13-by-9 pan. Layer with half of the rest of the ingredients and repeat layers, ending with cheese. Cover and refrigerate for two hours or more. Serves 10 to 12.

Alandra’s wasabi-mayo dip with asparagus

Alandra is my friend, Ruth Ann Parchman’s daughter-in-law. Alandra

shared this recipe in a family cookbook Ruth Ann published. Wasabi is Japanese horseradish.

2-3 pounds thin to medium asparagus, trimmed and blanched

Whisk together until sugar dissolves:

1 cup mayonnaise 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon soy sauce 11⁄2 teaspoons sugar 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice 2 teaspoons wasabi paste Serve asparagus with dip. Good with snap peas.

Roasted sweet rhubarb topping

I got enough rhubarb stalks from the garden to make my all-time favorite topping. Rhubarb is called “pie plant” because most folks make a rhubarb and strawberry pie with it. Rhubarb is good for our skeletal system. It contains anti-bacterial and anti-cancer properties, so it’s good to eat when in season. It’s really sour, though, so some sweetener is necessary. 1 pound rhubarb Zest and juice of an orange 1 ⁄3 to 1⁄2 generous cup sugar or equivalent Shake of cinnamon (optional but good) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut rhubarb into chunks. Toss with zest, orange and sugar. Put in small baking dish, cover

with foil and roast 20 minutes. Remove foil and roast until the juices get a bit syrupy. Add cinnamon. Serve hot, warm, room temperature or chilled on scones, or as a topping for cake and ice cream. Tip from Rita: Only the stalks of rhubarb are edible, not the leaves.

Can you help?

Like Macaroni Grill’s chicken scaloppini. For Donna, a Kentucky reader. Like Manyet Bakery’s radio rolls. For Patti Dirr. “Rolled like phyllo dough wound in a coil. Sticky caramel glaze and chopped pecans with caramel icing and more pecans. It was flat, not risen.” Her husband used to drive from Crestview Hills to Newport on Saturday mornings just to buy these. Like Ruby Tuesday’s avocado ranch dressing. For Wendy McDonald, a Norwood reader. “They discontinued it and won’t share the recipe.”

Tips from readers

• Batavia reader Debbie Moffatt offers this tip for Rita’s oven-fried french fries. “We prepare them in a similar manner by parboiling the potatoes first. I want to pass on that I use my apple slicer to make the wedges and cut the ‘core’ circle in half lengthwise,” she said. • In response to Mrs. Ratterman’s request for darker sauerbraten gravy. Reader John Augustin

has a Dayton Rita Art Institute cookHeikenfeld b o o k Rita’s kitchen recipe that uses gingersnaps for thickening and he says the gravy is dark. John has made it and declares it “delicious.” He’ll share if Mrs. Ratterman wants it. Reader Mary DeFoe suggests browning the flour in the skillet. “Takes about 20 minutes of careful watching and stirring.” Mount Lookout reader Tom Heitkamp says he tracked down a recipe from

Sauerbraten gravy 1

⁄4 cup butter 1 tablespoon sugar 1 ⁄4 cup flour Approximately 1 sauerbraten marinade (left after cooking meat) 1 cup red wine In a large saucepan, heat the butter, add the sugar and enough flour to produce a thick roux. Stir constantly and let the flour darken as much as possible without burning. Slowly add the marinade, stirring. Add the wine and simmer, stirring, until the sauce has the thickness of heavy cream. Strain the mixture through a very fine sieve and keep warm. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is Macy’s certified culinary professional. Email columns@community with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line.

It’s time to put all your taters in a basket Have you ever tried growing potatoes in tough old clay soil? The results are usually less than bad. But here’s the perfect solution

for growing great potatoes. Grow them in a pot. Now, whether you’ve got clay soil, live in an apartment, or don’t have a gar-

den at all, you can grow potatoes the ole yardboy way. And that’s in a container. Here’s what you’ll need: 1.) The container – I like to use bushel baskets. They breathe well, allow for good drainage, and they look good! But any container, plastic, wood or clay, laundry baskets, trash cans, potato planter bags, etc. will work, as long as it has good drainage, and is at least 12 to 18 inches wide and at

finish will work as well.) 3.) Seed potatoes – These aren’t the ones you buy from the grocery store. These are found at the garden stores (or feed stores) and are used specifically for growing potatoes. Any variety will work. We don’t recommend using potatoes from the produce department at the grocery. Many have been treated with a growth inhibitor to keep them from sprouting. But organically grown spuds should work if needed. Fill the bottom of your pot with 6 to 8 inches of the soil-less mix (or compost). Take a large seed potato, or a couple medium sized, cut up into pieces that contain the eyes, and evenly distribute those in the top of the soil-less mix. I usually plant around 6 to 8 to 10 pieces with eyes per basket. If you’re not sure about the “eyes,” you can plant whole potatoes, or cut them in half and plant the halves. Plant a bit heavier than usual when planting in containers. Cover over with another 2 to 3 inches of soil-less mix, water in thoroughly, and sit your container in the sun. Water as needed, thoroughly moistening the soil, then letting it dry and then watering it again. Once your potatoes start to grow, water as needed. Again, do not over water. Now that your potatoes are growing, you have a

least 10 to 12 inches deep. You can even use chicken wire fencing and create a potato tube to grow them in, or try stacking tires and growing inside them. 2.) Top grade potting mix – Use the good stuff for better results. If you have a compost pile, good compost will work too. Finely shredded is best. Folks have even used straw and ground leaves. Also, an all purpose garden food, Osmocote, and or Miracle Gro. (Feeding your containers can be done by mixing a general garden food in with the potting mix at the beginning and as added to the growing potato plants, or use Osmocote for a slow-release season-long feeding, supplemented with occasional Miracle Gro when watering (maybe tow to three times during the summer), or using all natural fertilizers from start to

c o u p l e options: 1.) As the potatoes grow, keep adding your soil-less mix (or compost) Ron Wilson to the container, In the garden always keeping about 4 inches of foliage showing. Continue this process until the container is filled to within a couple inches of the top of the basket. Or 2.) Let the foliage grow until it’s approximately 3 to 4 inches above the top of the basket, and then fill in around the foliage with your soil-less mix (or compost) until the basket is full of soil. Now you’re all set for growing potatoes! Let your potatoes grow all summer – remember water when needed, especially during the heat of the summer (again, don’t overwater). Come late summer or fall when the foliage starts to yellow, cut it off, dump out your soil, and you’ll have a basket full of taters! It’s that easy. (New potatoes are simply harvested earlier in the season) Good luck! Ron Wilson is marketing manager for Natorp’s Inc. Garden Stores and is the garden expert for 55KRC-AM and Local 12.
