Musical honors Buddy LaRosa Gannett News Service

A song and dance man must know how to throw pizza dough – and catch it – to star in this musical. Such skills are required for the lead role in “Buddy, the musical.” Simmered in pasta, pizza sauce and pathos, the show tells the rags-to-riches story of Cincinnati’s emperor of pizza, Buddy LaRosa. Starting with his lone Westwood pizzeria in 1954, his empire has grown to 61 Greater Cincinnati locations annually grossing about $134 million. In the works for a year, “Buddy” runs Aug. 11-14 at the College of Mount St. Joseph theater. Proceeds go to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. “Children’s Hospital kept my family intact,” said LaRosa, who never met a charitable-fundraiser he didn’t like. “When my oldest, Denise, was born, she had a congenital heart problem,” he added. “I’ve never forgotten how the people at Children’s took care of her. She’s alive today because of them. This is a small way of saying ‘thanks.’ ” That generosity “is typical Buddy. That’s why he deserves to have a musical written about him,” said the show’s creator, Dick Ruehrwein. “He’s always helping somebody.” Ruehrwein has spent 20 years putting musical revues and comedies on local and regional stages.


Buddy LaRosa will soon add another link in his historic career with the production of “Buddy, The Musical,” a mid-August production that coincides with his 80th birthday. None of his shows has made it to Broadway. “But I have a funny feeling about this one,” said Ruehrwein, the musical’s lyricist and scriptwriter. Anyone interested in the title role must know his way around a ball of dough. LaRosa thinks one of his former delivery drivers qualifies. “Nick Lachey used to work for me,” he noted. The singer knows pizza delivery. But does he know dough? Lachey would be a drawing card, Ruehrwein admitted. “But with his busy schedule,” he wondered, “who knows if he

can make all of the rehearsals?” Who knows, too, if Lachey can make pizza dough fly? Handling that sticky flour and water concoction is essential to the role of Buddy. The skill is so important, the show even has its own dough coach. “I can’t sing. Can’t say I’m light-footed. But I can teach anyone to throw pizza dough,” said the musical’s namesake. It’s all in the hands, LaRosa added. “Get a ball of dough. Spread it by hand on a flat surface until the dough is about 12 inches in diameter and one inch thick,” he said. “Then throw it in the air.”

Bob Herzog said being an Oak Hills High School graduate means the world to him. “I absolutely love Oak Hills,” he said. “It’s just a great place. “My mom and I always joke that Oak Hills is the backbone of Western civilization,” he said. Herzog’s love for the community in which he grew up and still calls home is one of the reasons he was presented this year’s Distinguished Oak Hills Alumnus award at the annual Oak Hills Educational Foundation Dinner. The proud native West Sider graduated from Oak Hills in 1992, and then went on to earn a degree in communications from Xavier University. After working as a news director for a country radio station in Dry Ridge, Ky., substitute teaching at Oak Hills High School, earning a law degree from the Chase College of Law at Northern Kentucky University and doing commercial and voice-over work, Herzog landed his first steady job in television as an entertainment host on Star 64, WSTR-TV. He joined the broadcast team at Local 12, WKRC-TV in December 2005, where he anchors the Saturday morning newscasts, serves as the traffic reporter on “Good Morning Cincinnati” and produces the offbeat online segment, “The Cooler.” Lynn Hericks, an Oak Hills business teacher

Now comes the fun part. “Catch it with both hands,” he said. “Make sure your thumbs and index fingers form a ‘C.’ That’ll make the dough spread out even more.” LaRosa said the whole process takes “about three minutes. That’s about as long as a round in a boxing match.” Or about as long as a song in a musical. Ruehrwein has written a dough-tossing routine into one “Buddy” number, “Pizza Suprema.” That tune follows “Pizza Goombah.” The latter number, Ruehrwein noted, features “Buddy arguing with his three original partners in 1954.” One partner wants to put goetta on a pizza. Buddy balks. He reminds them of their ethnic heritage. They’re not Cincinnati “Dutchmen.” They’re Italian. Ruehrwein is still working on the musical’s untitled finale. But that won’t be the show’s last song. The grand finale for the August run is “Happy Birthday.” “Buddy turns 80 shortly after the show ends,” Ruehrwein said. LaRosa’s birthday is Aug. 25. “So, we’re going to get him up on stage every night,” Ruehrwein said, “and have the audience sing ‘Happy Birthday.’ ” Who knows, while the crowd sings, the birthday boy just might toss some dough.


Traffic reporter Bob Herzog in the studio at Local 12 WKRC-TV. Herzog was honored as the Distinguished Oak Hills Alumnus at this year’s Oak Hills Educational Foundation dinner. Herzog graduated from Oak Hills in 1992. and the district’s community education coordinator, nominated Herzog for this year’s alumni award. She said his main hobby is spending time

with his wife, Cali, and their four children, but he’s also a tremendous backer of charities. “Bob can often be found supporting local events such as the Oak Hills Family Festival, the Delhi Skirt Game, the Relay for Life and the Rusty Ball,” Hericks said. “He is a great face for the Oak Hills Local School District and he serves us proudly. Not only does he have a heart of gold, he is truly a nice person – just ask anyone who’s come in contact with him.” Herzog said being named this year’s Distinguished Oak Hills Alumnus was very unexpected and also very, very cool. “It was wonderful,” he said. “I looked out into the audience and saw my family and a lot of my former teachers and administrators. “It was like going home. I can’t explain it,” he said. He said he forged lasting friendships and created lifelong memories when he was at Oak Hills. He and several of his high school friends still get together to play softball every Sunday. And the Oak Hills tradition will continue with his children. The Bridgetown resident said three of his children attend school in the district. Herzog said it’s great to drive past any of the schools on a parent night and see packed parking lots, and he also likes that he sees more and more pride growing among Oak Hills alumni. “It’s a pretty awesome thing and it just makes for a great community,” he said.

Explorers nab top honors By Heidi Fallon

It was a morning announcement at Oak Hills High School that Joe Goddard credits for helping him make a career choice. The announcement was alerting students of the opportunity to attend a Delhi Township Police Department sponsored Explorer troop meeting. That was four years ago and now Goddard, 20, along with fellow Oak Hill alum Mike Gerde, 20, are among the 15 members of the Delhi Township Police Explorer Post 934. “If I hadn’t heard that announcement, I wouldn’t have known about the troop and might never have joined. “I don’t know where I would be today without the Explorers.” All he and the troop have learned helped them in recent regional competition. The troop happily toted home the traveling trophy bestowed on the unit earning the most points. “Our post had not won first place since 2003,” said Police Chief Jim

Howarth. “Not only did they win in 2003, but they defended the championship from both 2002 and 2001. “I want to thank all the officers who volunteer to help train these young men and women, spending countless hours preparing them.” Cpl. Gary Schloemer is one of the troop’s advisors and one of five current township officers who came through the Explorer program. He said the competition involves scenarios including domestic violence, auto accidents and burglary. “We competed with 20 Explorer units and competed in eight of the 10 categories,” Schloemer said. He said the troop is for ages 14-21 and the current program has Elder and Oak Hills students as well as Delhi and Green township residents. “It really helps people learn if they like police work or not,” Schloemer said. “They learn pretty quickly whether this is the career for them.” Goddard said after just a short time with the troop, he knew he wanted to be a

Members of the Delhi Township Police Explorer Troop 934 look at the stack of plaques members earned in a recent tri-state competition. Best of all, the troop lugged home the traveling trophy given to the troop with the best overall score. Pictured, from left, is Cpl. Gary Schloemer, one of the troop advisors, Joe Goddard and Mike Gerde. police officer. Both he and Gerde, both Delhi Township residents, said they will be heading to the police academy in a few months. Both also have their sights set on working for the township department. Gerde, who works parttime for the department as a police clerk, said being a township officer would be a dream come true. “That is my ultimate goal,” he said. “I live here, I know a lot of people here and I’ve learned the way the department operates. “I like helping people

and I’d love to do that here in the township.” First things first. The troop is gearing up for national competition in July in Atlanta. The troop receives no funding from the department or the township, relying on fundraisers like the Dungeons of Delhi and spring mulch sales. There still is mulch available, Schloemer was quick to add. If anyone is interested either about the mulch or learning more about the Explorer troop, they can call police at 922-0060.

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!

Turner Construction to build Mercy in Green Twp. Turner Construction Co. has been selected as the contractor for the new Mercy hospital in Green Township. Turner has locations throughout the United States, including its office in Cincinnati. Turner has completed hundreds of acute care hospitals, academic medical centers, heart centers, and ambulatory surgery centers. Recent highlighted projects include the University of Kentucky Albert B. Chandler Hospital, the Yale-New Haven Hospital Smilow Cancer Center, and an addition to the Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus.


This is a rendering of the new Mercy Hospital in Green Township. “This is another important step as we move forward on plans for the new hospital that will serve as the hub for our comprehensive health care services on the West Side and in west-

ern Hamilton County,” said James May, president/CEO of Mercy Health Partners. The new hospital will be a state-of-the-art-health care facility, providing a full range of health care servic-

es, including emergency care, obstetrics, cancer care, open heart surgery, and a comprehensive orthopedics program. The hospital will be on North Bend Road near St. Ignatius Church.

Turner will work with the architects for the project – Champlin Architecture, of Cincinnati, and Ellerbe Becket, of Minneapolis – to construct the 200-bed hospital. “We are thrilled to be part of a project that will be so significant for health care in greater Cincinnati,” said Ken Jones, vice president and general manager for Turner’s Cincinnati/Kentucky office. The new site is only a few miles from the campuses of Mercy Hospital Mount Airy and Mercy Hospital Western Hills. The hospitals are continuing to provide care and are adding new

technology and new services that will be transitioned to May the new hospital when it’s complete in 2013. Mercy also offers a range of health care services throughout the West Side that include primary care, emergency care, imaging centers and a health and wellness center.

Summit discusses preserving West Side Man charged with voyeurism at store

The Cincinnati Preservation Association will sponsor the West Side Preservation Summit from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, June 5, at the Westwood branch of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, 3345 Epworth Ave. This will be Cincinnati's first-ever forum for West Side stakeholders on historic preservation as a revitalization tool. The program will be held at the Westwood Branch Library at Epworth Avenue. The day-long event is free, but reservations are required due to limited space. Contact CPA at 513-7214506 or The James N. Gamble House. The Anderson Ferry. Knox Hill. The Incline District. The Sayler Park Indian Statue. The Boldface Park Shelterhouse.

These are just some of the historic places of Cincinnati's West Side. Often under-appreciated and overlooked, the West Side has strong neighborhoods, wonderful building stock, wooded hillsides and river views. Unfortunately some West Side neighborhoods also are struggling with population loss, disinvestment, vacant buildings, foreclosures and demolitions. Facing these challenges in a tough economy while preserving the best of the west will be the focus of the summit. The morning sessions will focus on challenges facing West Side communities, and the afternoon sessions on solutions. Topics will include: • Balancing code enforcement and historic preservation • Preservation and demolition in

Westwood • The City role in preservation • Learning from other cities: best practices for preservation legislation • Jewels of the West Side: lesserknown historic treasures • A plan for preservation and receivership Confirmed speakers include Cincinnati Urban Conservator Larry Harris; Edward Cunningham of the Cincinnati Community Development Department; and representatives of several community groups including Jim McNulty of the Westwood Civic Association, Dave Zelman of the Riverside Civic Association, Paul Willham of the Knox Hill Neighborhood Association and Danny Klingler of the Over-the-Rhine Foundation. The West Side Preservation Summit is sponsored by Comey & Shepherd Realtors, City Office.

Gannett New Service A 33-year-old West Price Hill man was arrested May 26 after he allegedly used his cell phone to videotape under the skirt of a woman who was shopping at a Bigg’s grocery store in Delhi Township. Delmicio Tolliver was arrested on charges of voyeurism, possession of criminal tools and drug abuse. Police said Tolliver was spotted by a store security employee putting the phone under the woman’s skirt. The woman had no idea that she was being recorded. Police say that when

they arrived Tolliver tried to dispose of a marijuana cigarette. They said he admitted to recording the woman but deleted the file. Police said they will try and restore the recording for their case. Tolliver spent 12 years in prison for killing a man in 1995 and was released from parole on that sentence in February 2009, according to Ohio prison records. Hamilton County Municipal Judge Bernie Bouchard set bond at $30,000 for Tolliver. He ordered that if Tolliver is able to post that bail, he must stay away from the Bigg’s store on Delhi Pike.

In the mood for summer fun By Heidi Fallon

They had to think fast and run like the wind to compete in the St. Dominic School field day. Students from kindergarten to fourth grade competed in a variety of zany games organized by physical education teacher Jan McReynolds.

The fun and games, mostly fun, included a vacation dash starting with packing a suitcase. Then, rushing via a bike to a make-believe airport to catch their flight. Other contests included a backyard cook-out and a day at the beach. Students were timed for their relay efforts and all were designed to get them in the mood for summer.

Electrolysis the only PERMANENT METHOD of hair removal

Cosmetic procedures have become more accepted over the years and, with that, negative connotations have been lost. It is no longer taboo to spend money on touching up or changing certain areas of your body. “Yet, with any cosmetic surgery or therapy, it is important to do your homework,” says Jeff Thompson, a certified cosmetic therapist. “It’s too easy to fall into advertising or the notion that a certain product or process can live up to its expectations.” The same thing applies to hair removal. “Though there are many methods of hair removal, research has proven electrolysis is the only 100 percent safe and permanent way to go,” said Jeff, a practicing electrologist.

Izak Velasquez going to state By Tony Meale

Oak Hills High School senior Izak Velasquez is going to state. Velasquez finished fourth in the 3,200 (9:26.70) at the Division I Regional Meet at Welcome Stadium in Dayton May 28. The top four finishers advance to the Track and Field Championships, which will be held at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium at Ohio State University June 4-5. Zach Wills of Mason (9:21.16), Doug Norris of Vandalia Butler (9:25.62) and Eric Hauser of Mason (9:26.40) finished first through third in the 3,200, respectively. Velasquez secured his spot at state by finishing less than half a second ahead of fifth-place runner Aaron Dinzeo of Sidney (9:27.12) “Izak’s work ethic has to be above and beyond that of your normal distance runner,” Oak Hills boys’ coach Jerry Dean said. “He’s very competitive. Even in practice, he hates to lose.” Velasquez was a district champion in the 3200 (9:27.53) – he finished nearly 20 seconds faster than runner-up Travis


Oak Hills High School freshman Kevin Konkoly, right, charges down the track during a preliminary heat for the 100-meter dash during the Division I Regional Championships at Dayton Welcome Stadium Wednesday, May 26. Konkoly finished 15th in a time of 11.33. Hawes, a junior from La Salle – and also set the school record in the twomile with a 9:25.33 at the Best of the West Meet May 6. The previous record stood for 39 years. “He started (running) very young,” Dean said. “He’s been above his (age group) ever since middle school.” Also performing at regionals for Oak Hills was freshman standout Kevin Konkoly, who finished 14th in the 100 (11.33) and 13th in the 200 (22.83). He was the only freshman to advance to regionals in either event. “He’s the real deal,” Dean said. “He’s in such

good shape and his recovery time is real quick.” Konkoly began the year anchoring relays – “That way he didn’t have to pass the baton; I didn’t want to put too much pressure on him,” Dean said – but eventually he made his mark in the sprinting events. He set a school record in the 100 with a time of 10.89 at the Ross Invitational April 30 and was runner-up at districts, where he finished fourth in the 200. “The only thing he’s lacking is experience, and I need to get him into the weight room,” Dean acknowledged. “But he’s blessed with natural speed and pure running form.”

T h e 4x800 relay team, meanwhile, finished fourth at districts (8:17.99) and 11th at Velasquez regionals (8:18.01). The team – comprised of Velasquez, senior Max Bischoff, junior Cody Lacewell and sophomore David Kohlbrand – ran approximately 17 seconds faster at districts than its previous best. “That was just the competitive adrenaline rush (kicking in),” Dean said. Lacewell, who was a district runner-up in the 800 (1:57.31), finished 11th at regionals (2:00.70). In the field, senior Alex Adams advanced to regionals after finishing fourth in the pole vault at districts (12-00.00). Although the Highlanders hoped for more state-qualifiers, they were more than happy with their performance at districts, which Dean said was the best in years. Oak Hills, which totaled 62 points, finished behind La Salle (170), Elder (88) and Winton Woods (72), which finished first through third, respectively.

“We were very happy with that,” he said. The girls’ team, which failed to advanced a performer to regionals, finished last of 16 teams at districts. The Lady Scots totaled 15 points. McAuley (98), St. Ursula (57), Seton (50), Hamilton (49) and Lakota East (47) finished first through fifth, respectively. The Lady Scots who came the closest to qualifying for regionals were sophomore Maggie Bischoff, who finished fifth in the 3,200 (11:57.20); sophomore Stephanie Chisholm, who finished fifth in the shot put (33-08.00); and senior Holli Deems, who finished sixth in the long jump (15-08.75). The girls’ team is coached by Mike Eckert. “I think they knew it’d be a rebuilding year,” said Dean, who is happy to add another week to the season. “In the past, usually something happens – a kid gets sick or hurt or doesn’t (perform well),” he said. “But this year, everyone showed up, no one had a bad day and they kept on believing in the system. This is one of those years I just want to keep having meets. It’s just fun.”

Panthers punch ticket to state; Moeller awaits By Tony Meale

For the second time in four years, the Elder High School baseball team is going to state. The Panthers, fueled by power pitcher Matt Pate, downed New Albany 6-1 in the Division I Regional Finals at Dublin Coffman May 28. Pate had eight strikeouts and moved to 8-1 with the win. “Over the last year, Matt’s matured more than any other player we have,” head coach Mark Thompson said. “He used to beat himself up a lot.” Elder (27-4) has won 11 straight games. The Panthers advanced to the regional finals after beating Upper Arlington 4-0 in the regional semis May 27. Senior starting pitcher Brian Korte, who will play for Indiana University, tossed a complete game. “That’s just the type of competitor he is,” Thompson said. Korte’s strikeout totals


Elder High School senior Selby Chidemo, right, takes a ball during the sectional finals against Lakota East at Kings May 20. Elder won 4-2. Chidemo missed the regional semis after being hospitalized with pneumonia but returned to action the next day and went 3-for-4 with three stolen bases to help the Panthers advance to state for the second time in four years. over his last three starts have gone from 10 to nine to six, but Thompson sees that as a positive. “It’s encouraging because that means he’s keeping his pitch count down,” Thompson said. “It’s nice when he has a little extra pop on his fastball, but his pitches have great movement, and he changes speeds well.” Elder defeated Withrow and Lakota East in sectional

play before downing Sidney in the district finals May 22. The Panthers’ postseason opponents have had no answer for sophomore outfielder Danny Schwarz and senior second baseman Jeremy White, who didn’t make his first out of the tournament until the regional semis. Entering play against New Albany, White was 11for-12 in the playoffs. That’s a .917 average, folks.

“Danny and Jeremy have been out of this world,” Thompson said of his 1-2 hitters. “They make us go.” White, who hit his third homer of the year against New Albany, also hasn’t made an error since the first week of the season. Other defensive standouts include senior Tim O’Conner and junior Jacob Lindsey. Senior shortstop Selby Chidemo, meanwhile, was hospitalized with pneumonia last Thursday, May 27, and missed the regional semis; he returned for the regional finals the next day and went 3-for-4 with a triple and three stolen bases. Elder, which has won 25 of its last 27 games, advances to the state semifinals to face Moeller (291), which dismantled Mason 11-1 in the regional final. Moeller defeated Elder twice during the regular season – including a comefrom-behind 4-3 win May 3 – and has won 27 straight games.

“Anyone can be cocky and say they want (to play) Moeller, but I’m not arrogant enough to think (it would be easy to beat them),” Thompson said. “Moeller’s been the best team we’ve faced all year.” That being said, Thompson has complete confidence in Korte, who he ranks among the top-three pitchers he has coached during his 21-year tenure at Elder. Whichever team wins, one trend will surely be broken. Moeller is averaging 12 runs per game in the playoffs, while Korte has allowed just two runs in his last six postseason starts combined. The game will be at Huntington Park in Columbus June 4 at 10 a.m. The winner advances to the state final, which will be 4 p.m. June 5. Thompson led Elder to state titles in 1999 and 2005. “Our goal is to win the last game of the season,” he said.

Preserving Gamble house shows community unity When traveling, my wife and I often get sidetracked in search of authentic Americana. On one memorable trip to Florida we were delightfully surprised when a small town beckoned us with a billboard advertising: “A new Hampton Inn in historic downtown Newberry.” The town’s early 19th-century architecture inspired the design of the hotel, which stands adjacent to a beautiful old opera house. After checking in we walked to a restaurant located in an elegant old Masonic Lodge. We were the last evening patrons so we had an opportuni-

CH@TROOM Last week’s question

Does the Reds’ early season success make it more likely that you will go to a game, or more games, this season? Why or why not? “It doesn’t influence my decision to go or not to go. I love going to the Reds games and try to catch a game (at least) once a year. It’s always fun and the stadium is (still) so beautiful with a great view. If they don’t win the night I’m there, no big deal – you win some and you lose some. I’m a Reds fan through the highs and lows.” J.K. “My son and I were making plans for going to at least one Reds game this summer. It would be our third since The Great American Ball Park opened a few years ago. Obviously we’re glad the Reds are doing so well. We might go to more than one game due to that.” R.V. “I hate to weigh in with such a boring answer, but I have to be honest. I’ve reached the age where I’m not terribly interested in watching baseball, either on TV or in person. But there was a time ...” B.B. “I really don’t care where the Reds are in the standings. I like to go anytime the Cubs are in town. Was born and raised in Wrigley and am sticking with them till they win. However, Great American Ball Park, while not Wrigley Field, is a great venue for baseball, especially compared to that stadium monstrosity called Riverfront. Went just a week ago to see St. Louis and really enjoyed the atmosphere. So support your team, the facilities, the city, even if they are the Reds.” J.Z. “It has been years since I enjoyed a Reds game. I was there when Pete hit 4,192 and I also went to a World Series game years ago. I enjoyed the Big Red Machine of the 1970s. The Reds of the last 25 years have not impressed me very much. However, if they continue to perform I could take in a day game.” J.S.D.

ty to talk with the owner at length about the town’s unique character. He explained that its revitalization was credited to the restoration Jim Grawe of the opera Community house. And that, Press guest because local columnist r e s i d e n t s demonstrated that Newberry is a place worth caring about, he and others were encouraged to move there and

invest in the town’s future. Dilapidated prominent buildings become symbols. If left to the wrecking ball they validate and permeate cynicism – and perpetuate decline. But, when a community unites to preserve them they instill certainty, serving as a tangible reminder of who we are. This crystallizes a common vision and empowers us to create a better future. I believe the opera house story is being played here locally on the West Side. The restoration of the Covedale Center for the Perform-

ing Arts has inspired a redevelopment plan for the Covedale business district.. And, Westwood residents have united to save the Gamble house, demonstrating that Westwood is also a place worth caring about. Now, sensing that the West Side is willing to invest in its future by preserving its past, the Cincinnati Preservation Association has organized the first ever West Side Preservation Summit on June 5. Indeed James N. Gamble’s home and his life story as a philanthropist and visionary industrialist is authentic Americana.

But for all of his success and positive influence worldwide, locally he is simply remembered as a good and generous neighbor with an unassuming demeanor. Please join the many agents of change who have accepted the responsibility of preserving his home – and our cultural identity. Please make a tax-deductible donation to save the James N. Gamble house to the Cincinnati Preservation Association. Information: or call 513-721-4506. Jim Grawe is the co-founder of the Covedale Neighborhood Association.

Water works meets state, federal standards How many times in a day do you use water? What would you do if you turned on the faucet and nothing came out? At the Greater Cincinnati Water Works, our mission is to provide a plentiful supply of the highest quality drinking water and outstanding services to our customers. Our employees work each and every day to provide you with dependable, high quality water each and every time you need it. We are proud to report that our water met or exceeded all state and federal health standards in 2009, as it always has. To ensure we deliver the highest quality water possible, our water quality experts, engineers and water distribution specialists stay abreast of the latest water industry research and technology and continually look for ways to improve our methods.

G C W W draws its source water from the Ohio River and the Great Miami aquifer near Fairfield. We typically treat about 135 million gallons of water a day and perform more than 600 water quality tests a day throughout the water treat-

ment process. Our Richard Miller Treatment Plant, located on the East Side of Cincinnati, treats water from the Ohio River. It is one of only a few water treatment plants in the nation that uses granular-activated carbon with on-site re-activation. GAC is cited by the United States Environmental Protection Agency as

one of the best available treatment technologies to remove impurities such as pharmaceuticals during drinking water treatment. This year, GCWW will begin a major construction project to install ultraviolet disinfection treatment technology at the Miller Plant. UV disinfection is able to remove contaminants such as cryptosporidium. Together, these cutting edge water treatment technologies will provide unparalleled protection. The UV technology is expected to be online in 2013 and, once installed, GCWW will be the first water utility in the country to use sand filtration followed by GAC and then UV, further cementing our role as an industry leader. GCWW currently serves 1.1 million people in Hamilton, Butler, Warren and Clermont counties in Ohio and Boone County in Ken-

tucky. Our 2009 Water Quality Report highlights our extensive water quality monitoring and state-of-the-art treatment process. I urge you to read it and learn more about what we do to provide you the highest quality water possible. Our 2009 report is now being mailed to Water Works customers in their utility bills. To view a copy of our 2009 Water Quality Report, visit or call 591-7700 to get printed copies. People served by other water utilities will also receive reports on water quality from their water provider.

Hazardous waste program open until October Did you know the average home stores between 60 and 90 pounds of hazardous products? These products include pesticides, fertilizers, automotive fluids, cleaning supplies and other chemicals which, when managed or disposed of improperly, pose a threat to human health and the environment. When used, stored, and disposed properly, these products can make our lives easier. However, improper disposal of these products can injure your waste hauler. Sometimes, these chemicals are illegally dumped or poured down sewers and into

waterways. Other residents store the products for years in their basements and garages which can increase the risk of spills or, even Holly worse, accidenChristmann tal poisonings. In light of Community these facts, the Press guest Hamilton Councolumnist ty Solid Waste Management District continues to offer residents a convenient opportunity to

properly dispose of the hazardous materials stored in their homes. The free drop-off program is open through October 16. This program is part of Hamilton County’s Home Safe Home program whose goal is to educate residents on the proper use and management of household hazardous products. This year, there is a new location for the drop-off. The location and operating hours are: 4879 Spring Grove Ave., Tuesdays 2-6 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Acceptable items include: gasoline, motor oil, antifreeze, pool chemicals, fertilizers, pesticides, solvents/thinners, cleaning

products, fire extinguishers, propane tanks, fluorescent bulbs, mercury, and batteries. Please visit or call 513946-7700 if you have any questions. Each year, the district responds to thousands of residents looking for ways to properly manage their hazardous products. I encourage you to take advantage of this convenient opportunity to make your home and community a safer and cleaner place to live.

Career-tech students prepared for life President Obama announced recently that he wants to speak at a high school commencement. He’s looking for a school that prepares students well for college and careers. He need look no further than any Ohio career center. Called Joint Vocational School Districts, these public schools were formed in the 1960s and ‘70s to offer technical programs to Ohio students in a practical and costeffective way. Groups of school districts joined these regional JVSDs; juniors and seniors could choose to complete their high schooling at the affiliated JVSD or in satellite JVSD programs at their school to receive specialized career instruction and skills. Some districts, such as Cincinnati Public Schools, developed

career-technical programs within their district. For nearly four decades, Ohio students have learned dozens of careers, from animal science to health care to robotics to cosmetology to dental assisting to firefighting. In many programs graduates were certified in their career field-or at least years ahead of other high school graduates entering that field. But something happened to JVSDs – by now more accurately called career centers – as we entered the 21st century. Always closely aligned with local business, school leaders saw that even as they learned high level skills, successful students needed the ability and enthusiasm to keep learning. The numbers of career-technical students who went directly to college skyrocketed and

the percentages of college-bound graduates now rival those schools ranked high in state standards. At area career centers, 50 to 80 percent of students go directly to postsecondary education. Through dual credit options and articulation agreements, many of those students finish high school having already earned college credit. The skills needed to be successful as adults have changed as well. All high school graduates need to be technologically savvy; they need to have strong problemsolving skills, they must be able to collaborate with their co-workers, they must understand the global marketplace and they must be able to think critically. The next time you eat a fine meal in a restaurant, are cared for by a health care professional, ask someone to develop a Web site for

Hundreds of West Siders set up camp at Veterans Park in Green Township from May 14-15 for the 10th annual Relay for Life of the West Side. A nationwide fundraiser, Relay for Life brings together entire communities to take part in the fight against cancer. It’s an event where people celebrate cancer survivors, remember those who’ve passed away and fight back against a disease that touches too many lives. Teams consisting of eight to 15 people take part in the relay, which requires at least one team member to be walking around the park’s paved walking trail at all times. Money raised during the event helps the American Cancer Society work toward eliminating cancer as a major health issue and supports much-needed services in the community. Organizers of the West Side relay hoped to raise at least $84,000 this year. A wide variety of fun activities, entertainment and contests were featured for participants throughout the event, which kicked off with a dinner for cancer survivors on Friday evening. A special Kid Zone for children, a “Letters to Heaven” balloon launch, the touching luminaria ceremony and a Saturday morning breakfast for caregivers who were there for cancer patients in their time of need were also part of the relay.

often repress one of the poles of the tension. There are other kinds of ambivalence besides relational ones – such as uncertainty or indecisiveness about a certain course of action, ambivalence about a job, religion, sibling, etc. Children at first need unequivocal messages as they begin to grow. Before maturity we are not in possession of capacities for dealing with the ambiguities and ambivalences of life. We encounter them as painful contradictions. Even at a tender age we experi-

Conflicting feelings are often strong toward parents since they are agents of both discipline and affection. Spouses may also notice sporadic love/hate sentiments toward the other. The polarity of such feelings can be temporarily disturbing when they occur. Some find them so troublesome to admit that they

We may blunt our feelings, repress, distract ourselves, dissociate, deny, and later on develop addictions or personality traits. Eventually we’re meant to learn healthier ways. We learn to recognize and hold the tensions between opposites such as love/hate, dark side/good side, vindictiveness/forgiveness, and

How grown up are we? At old-time county fairs young men sought to demonstrate their physical strength by swinging a huge mallet and striking a mat. It propelled a weight upward. If it hit and rang the bell, it was evidence they were macho. What are some ways to measure how developed we are inside? “The test of a psychologically mature person, and therefore spiritually mature, will be found in his or her capacity to handle what one might call the Triple As: anxiety, ambiguity and ambivalence,” writes Dr. James Hollis in “Creating A Life.” Anxiety, as we well know, is the agitation and stress we feel when we anticipate impending risk, danger, catastrophe or misfortune. The future threat may be real or imagined, internal or external, but always uncomfortable. Recall how we feel when called upon to speak to a crowd. Ambiguity is a confusing grayness. It flows from our ego’s desire for clarity and security. Yogi Berra creates ambiguity when he advises, “If you come to a fork in the road – take it!” We want life, God, and the world to be in a permanently knowable condition. The younger or less mature we are the more we become frustrated by the absence of clarity. The older and more mature we become doesn’t banish the ambiguities and anxieties of life, but we are more able to tolerate them as part of life. Our experiences and maturation render us more humble, understanding of

choose to acknowledge but discipline the undesirable. We come to see we are imperfect humans living in am imperfect world, yet struggling for wholeness as a person. Life contains many rich experiences as well as paradox and challenging mysteries. In the midst of living our questions, which are often enveloped in anxiety, ambiguity and ambivalence, poet Rainer Maria Rilke offers practical advice: “Bear with patience all that is unresolved in your heart, and try to love the questions themselves, as if they were rooms yet to enter or books written in a foreign language. Don’t dig for answers that can’t be

Traditional tabbouleh for son’s birthday dinner It will be a Lebanese dinner this Sunday for my s o n , Shane, to celebrate Rita his birthHeikenfeld day. I have Rita’s kitchen to ask what he wants, but I’m pretty sure tabbouleh and fried kibbee will be requested. I’ll be making stuffed grape vine leaves, too, since the wild grape leaves are the perfect size right now. I wish I had some of Joe and Mary Lou Zarig’s homemade Lebanese flatbread to serve with it – Joe and Mary Lou are great Lebanese cooks and bakers. I’ll also make some baklava. I love preparing my family’s Lebanese recipes and I can never get enough. That’s why you’ll find me at the St. Anthony of Padua’s Lebanese festival Sunday, June 6, from noon to 8 p.m. The church is on Victory Parkway. This festival is fun, with rides, Lebanese dancing and authentic Lebanese food. I

love everything they prepare! Get details at 513961-0120.

eral grinds. I like the fine or medium grind. Some folks like to put a squeeze of lemon juice in the salad.

My mom’s tabbouleh

Traditionally, this is served with wild grapevine leaves to act as a scoop, or leaf lettuce, or flatbread. This is a real “go to taste” recipe, wonderful as a main meal, stuffed into pita pockets for lunch, or as a versatile, healthy side dish. Tabbouleh is a healthy salad using bulgur wheat (great for lowering cholesterol and contains vitamin E) and an abundance of summer vegetables. It’s all the rage in local delis, and is expensive to buy. 1 cup bulgur wheat 4-6 tomatoes, chopped 1 bunch green onions, chopped 1 bunch parsley, chopped 1 bunch radishes, chopped (optional but good) 1-2 regular cucumbers, peeled and chopped, or 1 English cucumber, chopped 1 bell pepper, chopped 2-3 teaspoons cumin, or to taste Several sprigs mint

pool,” said Hamilton County Health Commissioner Tim Ingram. “All swimmers and parents of young children should do their part to maintain the safety of pools and recreational water activities.” Swimmers can become infected with recreation water illnesses by swallowing, breathing or having contact with contaminated water from swimming pools. Swimmers who are ill may contaminate the water, posing a health risk for the healthy swimmers in the

pool. Chlorine kills most germs over time, but some germs can survive in chlorinated water up to several days. These healthy swimming behaviors are important to remember this summer: • Do not swim and don’t allow children to swim when experiencing diarrhea. You can spread germs in the water and make other people sick. • Don’t swallow the pool water and try to avoid getting any in your mouth. • Practice good hygiene. Shower before swimming

and wash your hands after using the toilet or changing diapers. Germs on your body end up in the water. • Take children on bathroom breaks or change diapers often. Change diapers in a bathroom, not poolside. • Wash your child thoroughly with soap and water before and after swimming. Everyone has invisible amounts of fecal matter on their bottoms that end up in the pool. More information is available at and www.

BRIEFLY Language OK’d

The Ohio House last week approved language sponsored by State Rep. Denise Driehaus (D-31st) which directs $10 million to chartered non-public schools – 70 percent of which are Catholic schools. The language included in Senate Bill 181, directs the release of $10 million from the Lottery Profits Education Reserve Fund to be used for chartered non-public schools. Of the $10 million, $7 million will provide funding for auxiliary services including school nurses, speech therapists and college counselors. The remaining $3 million will assist non-public schools with the Administrative Service costs they incur by following state mandated guidelines. The amendment protects funding for Ohio’s public schools and does not jeopardize the state’s ability to recoup maximum federal education dollars. “As an alumna of Seton High School, as a parent of two Catholic school graduates, and as a lifelong resident of the West Side of

Cincinnati, I know how important Catholic Schools are to our children and our communities,” says Driehaus. “This amendment recognizes the successes of Ohio’s chartered non-public schools whilst upholding our constitutional obligation to fund public education.” Senate Bill 181 returns to the Senate for concurrence in House amendments.

INEOS public advisory Gamble house feud moves to federal court group seeks members The case over the proposed demolition of the endangered James N. Gamble house is moving to federal court. The move came during Thursday’s 25-minute hearing in the courtroom of Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Norbert Nadel. C. Francis Barrett, attorney for the historic Westwood mansion’s owner, told the court that he filed “additional” claims Thursday “challenging the constitutionality” of the May 12 decision by City Council granting historic landmark status to the 13-room mansion that Gamble, the inventor of Ivory Soap, lived in from 1875 until his

death in 1932. The home’s owner, Indian Hill’s Greenacres Foundation - presided over by Louise Nippert - wants to demolish the house. The foundation with the word, “conservation,” in its mission statement, sued the city for a demolition permit. Nippert, 98, has never appeared at any hearing about the house. She was represented Thursday by Carter Randolph, the foundation’s executive vice president. The filing of more claims led Assistant City Solicitor Richard Ganulin to file a notice of removal. That notice moves the case to the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, Western Division.

Greenacres claims, Ganulin said, “the city deprived it of due process, equal protection under the law and the city has taken (the foundation’s) property without just compensation.” These claims are “Federal constitutional” matters, Ganulin said, and should be heard in federal court. Ganulin’s action did not please Nadel. “Oh come on, come on, come on!” he exclaimed. “All this does is delay the final decision.” Nadel indicated he was ready to rule on “whether or not this (demolition) permit should be issued.” The loser then could appeal his decision. Now, he said, not hiding his frustration, “I can’t make a proper decision.”

Monfort Heights resident Mary Hutten believes you are what you eat, but she takes it a step further. “You are what you eat ate,” she says. “That’s why it’s important to know what the people who grow your food feed their plants or their animals. You are eating that as well” Food and what goes into it has become a passion for Hutten. And it’s a passion she wants to share. Hutten is a driving force behind the new Lettuce Eat Well Farmers’ Market set to open from 3-7 p.m. Friday, June 4, in Monfort Heights, and then be open the same time every Friday. She and a committee of local residents spent a long time planning for the market, and she is eager to share good food with the community. The first question was location and Hutten says the group found an ideal spot: The market will be on the parking lot at Joy Community Church, 5000 North Bend Road. The church is happy to have the market there, and the market plans to give back to the church and the community. The vendors of the market are asked to donate 1 percent of their sales in cash or product to the church for its outreach to families in need. All of the market vendors are being questioned closely about how they grow the food they will sell. Hutten says it won’t be certified organic, but she’s been looking for vendors who raise fruits and vegetables as naturally as possible. That goes for meat and eggs, too. “You want to know what those animals have been fed,” she said. “I think it’s important.” The farmers’ market will feature in-season locally grown fruit, vegetables, meat, eggs and honey, Hutten said. She’s vetting potential vendors to make sure they will adhere to the philosophy of the market. She said while about 80 percent of the merchandise at the market will be what people traditionally expect, she’s hoping to mix it up with some new items. The market’s organizing committee includes Hutten, David and Peggy Lopez, Ana and Mick Bosarge, Karen

Kerst and Barb Piatt. Lopez says she is looking forward to the opening. “Finally,” she said. “We see these markets in other communities, but at last we have a good farmers market on the west side, here in Green Township. We are really excited. Mary is so optimistic, it really has been a pleasure to work with her.” Hutten is looking forward to the opening as well. “Everyone we talk to is almost as excited as we are,” she said. “We’ve been working on it since February, and while it’s been in people’s minds before, this time, it’s really going to happen.”

Bend. If you would like to participate, please call facilitator Deb Leonard of Environmental Quality Management, Inc. at 515-1041.

The Charity Tournament was started 25 years ago by Ed Berg, who is still an active member of the Colonial Tennis and Fitness Club in North College Hill, and the tennis tournament steering committee. Over the past 25 years, it has raised and distributed more than $1 million to local charities that help children and families. This year’s weekend tournament, on Feb. 19-21, concluded on Sunday with a brunch, awards, prizes and a lively auction with guest auctioneer Channel 9 News anchor Tanya O’Rourke. Catholic Inner-city

Bowlers can help Big Brothers If you’re looking for a way to help children and have a good time in the process, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati may have just the thing for you. The agency is now recruiting teams from all over the Tristate to take part. Each team is made up of four bowlers. People can register as a team captain and team up with three friends or co-workers to get their foursome together, or register as an individual and the agency will help form the team.

Bowlers are asked to raise $125 each, or $500 per team, with all funds going to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati. Money raised helps the agency continue its mission of matching caring adult mentors with children in our neighborhoods who need them. Bowlers have a lot of time, and help, to get those donations. The event runs now through the end of August, and each team receives its own website to get word out to friends and colleagues about Bowl For

Kids Sake, and donations can be made securely through that site. Then, in September, all the teams can choose one of three dates to celebrate with Big Brothers Big Sisters. There are three bowling events in September at Superbowl Bellewood in Bellevue and at Madison Bowl in Oakely. More information is available at or by calling Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati. Event coordinator Cherise Duncan can be reached at 513-4214120, ext. 11.
