Cleves Warsaw bridge replacement to be finished this summer By Kurt Backscheider

GREEN TWP. — Samuel Webb, Jake Nurre and Abby Kremer are grateful for their years at Oak Hills High School and are now ready to embark on new adventures in college. The graduating Highlanders are the top three students in Oak Hills’ class of 2014. Webb finished first, Nurre second and Kremer third. Oak Hills does not name a valedictorian and salutatorian, but it does keep track of class rankings. Instead of recognizing a valedictorian and salutatorian at graduation, the school honors students who have earned a GPA of 3.9 or higher. This year 88 seniors earned at least a 3.9 GPA. Webb, 17, is the son of Pamela and Ronnie Webb of Delhi Township. He’ll attend the University of Cincinnati this fall to study chemical engineering. He was active in several extracurricular activities and said balancing school work with sports was his biggest challenge in high school. He ran cross country and track all four years, was on the swim team his senior year, went on four mission trips through his church and volunteered regularly with Habitat for Humanity. Having an older sister who went through Oak Hills before him made the biggest difference in his high school career, he said.

“She helped me get associated with the different aspects of high school and she could help with homework if I needed it my freshman year,” Webb said. While he wishes he hadn’t jumped off a balcony into an indoor swimming pool at a cross country camp, he said he’s happy he was on the cross country team. “I’m glad I ran cross country because I have some great memories from hanging out with the team and I made some great friends,” he said. If he could start high school over he would swim for Oak Hills all four years, he said. His advice to incoming seniors to make the most of their senior year is to be mindful of the classes they take. “Take classes that you think you will enjoy, so that once ‘senioritis’ comes around the corner it won’t affect you as much because you like what you’re doing,” Webb said. Nurre, 18, is the son of Theresa and John Nurre of Green Township. He’ll also attend the University of Cincinnati, where he’ll major in engineering. Committing his life to a planned schedule was his biggest challenge in high school, he said. Nurre was a member of the Oak Hills marching band, participated in school musicals, sang in the choirs, was a member of the Boy Scouts and was in a rock band outside of school. “I’m glad that I decided to be in Varsity Singers my fresh-

man year because the class became a major part of my musical career and interests,” Nurre said. He regrets not joining the jazz band because it would have allowed him to pursue his passion to play bass, he said. If he could start over again, he said he would learn the bass guitar instead of the trumpet. Nurre’s advice to incoming seniors is to, “Cooperate with peers and communicate your opinion.” Kremer, 18, is the daughter of Kelly and Garry Kremer of Green Township. She’ll attend the Ohio State University this fall to major in pharmaceutical sciences. Her goal is to earn her pharmacy doctorate and become a clinical pharmacist. Time management was her biggest challenge at Oak Hills, she said. “Balancing school, volleyball, volunteering and work was not easy,” Kremer said. She played varsity volleyball, served as secretary of National Honor Society, was a class officer for two years, was a member of Student Council all four years, volunteered at the Cincinnati Zoo, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and Ronald McDonald House and worked at LaRosa’s. Kremer said her amazing teachers and friends made high school a blast, which made the most difference in her high school experience. Although she was very ac-

DELHI TWP. — Closed for nearly a year so far, the section of Cleves Warsaw Pike between Van Blaricum and Muddy Creek roads should be reopened at the end of August. The Hamilton County Engineer closed that portion of Cleves Warsaw, on the border between Delhi and Green townships, last July in order to replace the 90-year-old bridge spanning the Muddy Creek. Hamilton County Engineer Ted Hubbard said the old 244feet steel truss bridge is being replaced with a concrete beam structure bridge with a reinforced concrete deck. “The old bridge was in severe need of replacement,” he said. Prus Construction is performing the work and Hubbard said crews set the new bridge’s concrete beams May 29. The beams will support the new con-

crete bridge deck. He said one advantage of the new bridge is the fact it won’t require as much maintenance as a steel truss bridge. The $2.2 million bridge project began last July and was originally expected to be completed by May 31 of this year, but the completion date was pushed back until later this summer. Inclement weather played a role in the delay, and Hubbard said the construction team also encountered a soil anomaly and had to make sure the soil issue was resolved before setting the piers supporting the concrete beams. “It’s moving ahead quite rapidly now,” he said. “It’s going to be a great structure.” The project is now scheduled to be finished by the end of August, he said. The detour remains Hillside Avenue to Rapid Run Road to Pontius Road, and vice versa.

Crews with Prus Construction worked May 29 to install the concrete beams which will support the deck of the new bridge on Cleves Warsaw Pike. The bridge replacement project began last July and is expected to be finished by the end of August. KURT BACKSCHEIDER/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

tive in school, she said she’s sorry she didn’t join the Oak Hills Drumline because she loves when they play in the school hallways. “It gets me so pumped and I wish I would have been a part of it,” she said. If she could start all over, Kremer said she would spend less time complaining about school work and more time enjoying the fun aspects of high school. Her advice to next year’s seniors is to attend all the school events and activities they can. “Before you know it there won’t be any more Friday night football games or musicals,” she said. “Don’t regret not going when you had the chance.”

Change in mental approach leads Elder volleyball to state title By Tom Skeen

Elder High School senior Joe Ratterman celebrates after clearing 15 feet in the pole vault during the Division I regional track meet held at Welcome Stadium in Dayton May 28. Ratterman won the regional title and will compete in Columbus June 6-7 at the state meet.GARY LANDERS/COMMUNITY PRESS

Blaut, Ratterman win regional titles for Seton, Elder track By Tom Skeen

HAMILTON CO. — Defending Division I state high jump champion Loretta Blaut will look to defend her title June 6-7 in Columbus after winning her second-straight regional title May 28 at Dayton’s Welcome Stadium, clearing 5 feet, four inches, besting St. Ursula’s Danielle Springer by one inch. The Seton High School senior cleared five feet, seven inches to win state last season. Elder senior Joe Ratterman brought home another regional title for Southwest Ohio, clearing 15 feet, and will look to best his 11th-place finish in Columbus from a year ago. “Finishing 11th in the state has been more motivation for

me than finishing second in the region (last season),” Ratterman said, who’s been dealing with a stress fracture in his left shin all season. Seton junior Alyssa Ramstetter qualified for state for the first time in her career after finishing third in the discus with a throw of 120 feet, 1 inch, helping the Saints to a 12th-place finish as a team. The Elder 4x400-meter relay team of T.J. Ruwan, Brady Kraemer, Andrew Sportsman and Nick Pangallo clinched a state berth by finishing fourth in the finals, besting fifthplace Princeton by .02 seconds. Mother of Mercy High School senior Emma Hatch is the Bobcats’ lone state qualifier after finishing third in the 3,200-meter run. The St. Xavier High School

4x800-meter relay team of Brad Eagan, John Talbot, Michael Hall and Michael Vitucci set a new regional record bringing home the regional title in a time of 7:43.61. The previous record of 7:49.85 was set in 2008 by Centerville. “Our main goal was to beat the previous record,” Talbot said. “We ended up destroying it. Both Michaels were incredible. We’re excited about the opportunity to win state.” Hall also qualified for state in both the 800 and 1,600 events. Vitucci will join him in the 1,600, while senior Evan Stifel brought home a regional title in the 3,200. Fellow senior Zach Lynett finished second in the 300-meter hurdles to help the Bombers to a thirdplace finish as a team. Gannett News Service contributed to this story.

PRICE HILL — The Elder High School volleyball team got its mind right at the perfect time. After losing four games over a two-week stretch in midApril, the Panthers ended the season on a 12-game winning streak bringing the Division I Ohio High School Boys Volleyball state championship trophy back to Price Hill for the first time since 2010. They beat Greater Catholic League rival St. Xavier High School in straight sets May 25 in the state final. “There were definitely points in the season where things weren’t going the way we wanted it to,” Elder coach Sean Tierney said. “Going into the postseason guys really came together as far as work ethic, focus and execution. One of the biggest things we try to tell the kids is it doesn’t matter when it comes together, as long as it comes together. And thanks be to God it came together for us.” The victory avenged two regular season losses to the Bombers, including an April 25 loss where Elder blew a two-set lead en route to a five-set loss. That was all the motivation Tierney needed to make sure his guys’ minds were straight heading into the postseason. “I told them ‘you can’t wait for things to happen; you have to go out and make them happen,’” Tierney said, who has now won three state championships in his time at Elder (2008, ’10, ’14). “No matter who we play they have to be aggressive and

we have to be confident in our ability. We can’t be afraid to lose, you have to go earn it; they’re not going to give it to you.” Tierney placed the reason for that mentality on the expectations the coaches and players placed on themselves before the season. After losing to Hilliard Darby in the state finals last season, the Panthers pursued perfection in 2014 and when that didn’t happen the frustration crept in. “They knew we came close (last season) and knew we had a deep and talented team this year, and as a result they wanted to have an undefeated, perfect season and roll over everybody,” the coach said. “Obviously that didn’t happen. There were periods of frustration, but there are challenges on any team of getting them to buy into the process. You can’t expect teams to bow down just because you almost won it last year.” With the right frame of mind, the Panthers tore through the postseason, losing just one set in five postseason games. Tierney nearly saw his guys make that two sets after the Panthers got behind 11-4 in game one. The Bombers led 2319 before Elder ran-off six consecutive points to win the first set 25-23. The Panthers took the final two sets 25-20, 25-22 to finish off the upset over the topranked Bombers, a result that surprised the Elder coach. “Me personally, I was definitely shocked. In my mind it was going to be a four- or fiveset grind.”

The Elder High School volleyball team beat St. Xavier High School in straight sets May 25 at Hamilton High School to win the Division I state championship. It’s the school’s fifth state title since 1999, and the third under coach Sean Tierney.THANKS TO DAN HERDEMANN

Ex-preps baseball stars go full Steam ahead this summer By Adam Turer

Cincinnati baseball fans who want to see some of the best young players the region has produced in recent years can spend the next two months of summer following the Cincinnati Steam. The Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League team begins its ninth season of play on June 5 with a road game against the Lexington Hustlers. The league gives an opportunity for college players to play against high-level competition after their spring season wraps up. “We’ve done a really good job of putting together a great group of players,” first-year head coach Brad Gschwind said. Gschwind knows firsthand

how valuable the GLSCL can be for a college baseball player. The 2011 Miami University graduate spent three summers playing for the Steam and still ranks among the top 10 in several categories for organization. “I loved the time I spent there each summer and the years I spent there,” said Gschwind. He can relate to this year’s roster of players, who either currently play for local colleges or played for area high schools before going off to college. He understands the adjustment the players have to make to using wood bats and the grind the season can take on the players going quickly from their long college season to the summer league. “I’m not too far removed from their shoes,” said

Jake Richmond, shown playing for Oak Hills in 2013, will play for the Cincinnati Steam this summer. FILE PHOTO

Gschwind. The Steam are one of nine teams in the GLSCL, which features teams from Ohio, Kentucky and Michigan. Several current and former players from the Steam are currently

playing in the NCAA Regional tournament with their respective college teams. Players from Xavier University, Indiana University, and the College of Charleston will join the Steam once their collegiate season is completed. They will face off against other players with NCAA Regional tournament experience throughout the summer. “It’s a really good league,” said Gschwind of the GLSCL. “It’s a competitive league. It’s good for these guys to keep playing.” The Steam will play this season in honor of former general manager Max McLeary, who died in February. He was a part of the organization since its inception in 2006. At the team’s home opener on June 6 against the Hustlers, the “Beach Club”

down the first base line will be re-dedicated in memory of McLeary. “Max was a great guy and worked really hard for the team,” said Gschwind. “He did so many different things for us. All the guys know how hard he worked.” The Steam’s home field is McCartney Stadium across from Western Hills High School. The 19 home dates in June and July promise to deliver a good time and quality baseball. “This is a great environment to watch a game, close to the action,” Gschwind said.

St. Xavier lacrosse jets off to state tournament By Tom Skeen


After beating Moeller High School 8-7 in sudden-death overtime in the Division I regional semifinals May 28, chants of “We want state” rang from the St. Xavier High School lacrosse locker room. Those chants rang true May 31 after the Bombers avenged a regular season loss to beat Mason High School 14-10 and advance to the state final four. “I’m really happy for this team,” coach Nate Sprong said. “These seniors put in a lot of work and now it’s paying off for them.” The Bombers are scheduled to play Dublin Jerome High School June 4 in the state semifinals at Centerville High School, but St. Xavier’s graduation ceremony is set for the same day, so the exact

date of the game remains up in the air. Mason jumped to an early 3-0 and 5-2 lead before St. X ripped off five straight goals to take a 7-5 lead. The Comets tied it at nine, but the Bombers never relinquished the lead and outscored Mason 5-1 over the final 18 minutes. “They are a great transition team and got on us early,” Sprong said of the Comets. “It took us a bit to settle down and play our game, but I told the guys relax, play your game and they did just that.” The Bombers are in search of their first Division I state title after winning the Division II title in 2000. Their shot at state nearly came to an end against the Crusaders in the regional semifinals. It was a rematch of the 2013 semis that saw Moeller come out on top, but this time was different.

St. Xavier senior Jack Caudill takes a shot in the first quarter of the Bombers’ 8-7 overtime win over Moeller May 28 in the Division I regional semifinals at St. Xavier High School. The Bombers beat Mason 14-10 May 31 to advance to the state final four.TOM SKEEN/COMMUNITY PRESS

St. X controlled the first half taking a 3-2 lead into halftime, but the Crusaders stormed out of the half scoring two straight goals to steal the lead

back 4-3. The Bombers answered immediately with three straight goals, but Moeller managed to fight back and tie the game at seven with 1:41 to

play sending the game into overtime. Less than three minutes in, senior Jack Caudill of Hyde Park netted the game-winner sending

the Bombers on to play the Comets. After failing to beat the Crusaders in over three years, St. X topped the Crusaders twice in 2014. “These games against Moeller are always great games,” Caudill said still smiling after scoring the game-winner. “Whether you win or lose, it’s always fun.” This senior class found themselves in the regional semifinals for the third consecutive season, after losing to the Comets in 2012 and Moeller last season. As seniors, falling short of state wasn’t an option. “I think earlier in the season we had the tendency to panic when we’d get down some goals and we kind of broke that trend (against Moeller),” Caudill said. “I think we’ve shown the rest of the lacrosse world we can play.”

Editor: Richard Maloney,, 248-7134


As a former evolutionist and co-founder of the Creation Museum, I am responding to the guest commentary (May 21) that favored theistic evolution – the belief that God used evolution to bring about life. In his essay, the commentator criticized Ken Ham of our museum for not addressing some of Bill Nye’s pro-evolution arguments presented in their famous debate last February at our Creation Museum. Given the fact that the rebuttal and counter-rebuttal times were five minutes each, it was simply not possible for Ken to critique every argument brought forward by TV’s “Science Guy.” Each argument presented by Mr. Nye, however, has been refuted by our PhD scientists on We respectfully ask the guest columnist: why would the all-powerful God of the universe use such a cruel and wasteful process of evolution – with animals killing each other over millions of years and the strong surviving – to advance life? The idea of “survival of the fittest” goes against God’s nature. Furthermore, believing in a very old Earth presents an insurmountable theological problem. The Bible says God created a perfect world before Adam appeared. How could there have been death and suffering of animals for immense periods of time before Adam? Adam’s rebellion brought death and suffering into the world. The columnist asked: what need do we have of a Creation Museum? Well, for one, the many lives that have been changed as a result of touring here. Christians have become

Lot of parking problems at hospital

With the opening of Mercy Health-West Hospital, the traffic pattern off Interstate 74 and North Bend Road seems to have be anticipated and addressed. However, it is beyond my comprehension that Mercy Healthy and architects did not anticipate adequate parking for patients and

visitors. I had an appointment with a physician twice since they opened, both during the very cold months of winter. Had I not arrived 30-45 minutes ahead of my early morning appointment, I would have been late, simply because of parking. On a windy, snowy day, valet parking was of no use because the cars using it were lined almost back to the entrance to the lot. The vestibule was only being heated by a small electric heater and it was almost as cold inside as outside for the people waiting for their cars. Mentioning this to the helpful volunteer and to the physician’s reception desk, I was told they all park in the back and there is still not enough parking for patients and visitors. As an additional note, I would have been embarrassed to offer a mere $250 for the student’s project to study the parking situation. Maybe a $1,000 would have been a more reasonable for their winning idea with a lesser amount for the other two schools involved.

John Wint Springfield Township

CH@TROOM May 29 question Where is the best park in the area and why do you think it’s at the top of the list?

“There are so many great parks in Colerain and Green townships. “I have not been to all but my favorite is the updated Colerain Park on Poole Road. There is a quality play ground area with many swings etc. “There are several nicesized, rentable covered shelters and some great ball fields.

“The shaded walking path is great for joggers and walkers. The concerts in the large outdoor amphitheater are a great summer time venue. “Plus being next to the middle school additional parking is abundant. “They have really fixed this park up in the last 10 years or so and keep it clean. I am surprised more residents do not take advantage of this great green space. “Go figure!”

Social Security makes faster disability decisions Q. My cousin was just diagnosed with stage 4 Glioma, a form of brain cancer. Does this mean it will make it faster for her to get Social Security and Medicare? A. Yours is two-part question. We may be able to make a faster disability decision, but Jan your cousin Demmerle COMMUNITY PRESS will not get her MediGUEST COLUMNIST care any faster. Let me address the disability question first. Earlier this year, Acing Social Security Commissioner Carolyn W. Colvin announced 25 new Compassionate Allowances conditions, including a dozen cancers, bringing the total number of conditions to 225. “We are dedicated to providing vulnerable Americans with faster access to disability benefits through our Compassionate Allowances program,” Colvin said. The Compassionate Allowances program expedites disability decisions for Americans with the most serious disabilities to ensure that they receive their benefit decisions within days instead of months or years. The new conditions also include disorders that affect the digestive, neurological, immune, and multiple body systems. The Compassionate Allowances program identifies claims where the applicant’s disease or condition clearly meets Social Security’s statutory standard for disability. By incorporating cuttingedge technology, the agency can easily identify potential Compassionate Allowances and quickly make decisions. To date, Social Security has approved nearly 200,000 people with severe disabilities through this fast-track process.

For more information about the program, including a list of all Compassionate Allowances conditions, visit compassionateallowances. You will find Glioma Grade III and IV listed. You can complete the online disability application at ability. Or, call 1-800-772-1213 to make a telephone or in-office appointment. Medicare is different story. If approved for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), an individual will receive Medicare after receiving disability benefits for 24 months. When you become eligible for disability benefits, Social Security will automatically enroll you in Medicare. We start counting the 24 months from the month you were entitled to receive disability, not the month when you received your first check. Special rules apply to those with end-stage renal disease (permanent kidney failure) and Lou Gehrig’s Disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). People with permanent kidney failure get Medicare beginning: » the third month after the month a regular course of renal dialysis begins; or » the month of kidney transplantation. People with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis get Medicare beginning with the month they become entitled to disability benefits. For more information about Medicare, visit Do you have a question about Social Security? Would you like to schedule a free Social Security presentation at your workplace or for your group or organization? Contact susan.denny@ssa. gov. Jan Demmerle is manager of Social Security’s Downtown office.

Interview with a dedicated education researcher On Friday, May 9, I had the honor of interviewing a gentleman dedicated to uncovering the best ways of measuring and evaluating the progress students make in elementary and secondary schools. He works at the National Center on Educational Outcomes at the University of Minnesota. The website is NCEO is concerned about all students and their progress including students who may require accommodations for instruction and on state tests. My interviewee comes from a background of learn-

ing to give to others. When I asked him what made him feel good about himself or what made him feel important as he Joyce was growing Rogers COMMUNITY PRESS up, he said, “I felt good when GUEST COLUMNIST I was helping others. I remember one time when I collected a large amount of canned goods and non perishable food for a project at Covedale School to give to people in need.” I asked him what other



A publication of

good memories he had of growing up. He said that he really enjoyed being able to walk around his neighborhood and find kids to play together with, to be able to ride his bike all around the area and feel safe, and to know there were adults around he could go to for help if he needed anything. Those adults back then were primarily his mother and other mothers in the neighborhood as well. What a concept! Children feel safe in their neighborhoods. They can move about freely and find other children with whom to play. They can

go to their mothers for lunch or for help of any kind. They know they are being observed by someone, so getting into trouble is not a very agreeable option. As you may have already guessed, the gentleman I interviewed was my son Christopher Rogers, who grew up in Covedale in the 1970s and the 1980s. I spent Mother’s Day weekend with Chris and his wife and two children at their home near St. Paul, Minnesota. Both Chris and his wife, Laurene, work at the National Center on Educational Out-

You bet I am because they grew up in an atmosphere of adult examples of dedication, compassion, generosity of spirit, and caring neighbors; and they are living out that tradition. I think they may also have learned something from their parents as well. Joyce Rogers is a resident of Covedale.

Become a grill master with these basics Gosh, how time flies. Seems like it was just yesterday when my boys were little and my husband, Frank, answered this way when I asked him what he wanted for Father’s Day. “No presents, just something from the grill and some peace and quiet.” I have to laugh when I recall how the food was Rita never a Heikenfeld problem, RITA’S KITCHEN but the peace and quiet sure was. Dad’s day is a good time to celebrate all the dads in your life, both ones you are related to and those you are not. And if you’re nervous about feeding him a feast from the grill, here are some basics to make you a grill master!

Grilling basics 101:

Clean that grill: A long handled, stiff brush works well. Use it twice: when grate is preheated but before the food goes on and again after you’re done cooking, while it’s still hot. Oiling the grate: Best to do when grill is hot. Make a small pad out of a paper towel and dip it into oil, then rub it with long handled tongs over bars of grate. This also helps clean off debris. If you want to spray, take grate off grill away from the fire. Never spray oil onto grate over the fire.

Wood chips: these add distinctive flavors, and should be soaked in water about 30 minutes before grilling. I like to soak chips in wine and herbs. Just drain them well and wrap in a foil packet. Poke holes in top only and place among the coals or rocks. Have on hand: Thick grill gloves, oven mitts or potholders, apron and towels. Salt it down! A box of coarse salt is a must to have for sprinkling over a grease fire. Don’t know a rub from a mop? Rub: a “dry” marinade – a mixture of dried seasonings rubbed directly onto surface of meat. Adds intense flavor and coating forms a seal. Let rubbed meats stand for 30 minutes before cooking to allow seasonings to penetrate. Mop: this comes from the tool used to dab sauce on barbecued meats. It looks just like a little cotton “mop” on the end and is used instead of a brush. Marinade: meats are put into seasoned liquids, which enhance flavor and tenderize. Marinades moisten surface of meat so it doesn’t dry out over hot coals. Glaze: a thin type of sauce that is usually glossy when brushed on foods, sometimes during the last five minutes of grilling, and the glaze remains glossy after cooking.

Grilled steak with garlic, thyme rub

Rita Heikenfeld shares grilling tips, a rub and butter for grilled fare. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

What cut to use? Flat iron is part of the chuck so it has great beefy flavor and is almost as tender as tenderloin. Originally, skirt steak was cut to be used in fajitas and has a bit more fat than the hanger or flank. Flank works well here too. My favorites are flat iron and flank. Serve with a side of grilled thick sliced potatoes. For each steak (1-1/2 pounds approx.) Combine with enough olive oil to make a pasty

rub: 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves 2 teaspoons garlic 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1 teaspoon salt For sprinkling on immediately after grilling: Romano cheese and chopped parsley Score steak on both sides. Rub seasoning onto steak on both sides. Let sit about 30 minutes. Place on hot grill and

grill until medium rare to medium, turning once. Remove and sprinkle with cheese. Let rest, tented, 5 minutes or so and slice thinly against grain.

Bed Wetting and Bladder Control


et blankets and sheets in the morning, soaked, smelly pajamas, soggy, c o l d , a n d we t u n d e r we a r, and a ver y uncomfor table, embarrassed and ashamed child - this is a picture of bed wetting (Nocturnal Enuresis) and loss of bladder control for children. Enuresis simply stated is bed wetting past the usual time a child is potty trained - whereas loss of bladder control applies to children during the school day. It can also apply to adults - have you heard of the new “Overactive Bladder Disease?” I just love marketing.

It is estimated that 1 out of 5 young children wets the bed regularly. This means that 20% of children under the age of ten wet their bed. Not Ok! Imagine what this does to a child’s self-esteem. Incidentally, the oldest patient I have seen with this condition was a 21-yearold dental hygienist. Over time, various reasons and “causes” have been proposed as the origin of bed wetting; psychological, habitual, etc. Many methods have been used to “treat” this affliction; alarm systems in the bed, electric shocks, hypnosis, d r u g s , wa k i n g t h e c h i l d , psychotherapy, spankings, selfblame, the “bad boy” syndrome, punishments, etc. None of these

have had much of an affect. Not that many years ago, this was thought to be the fault of the child who was simply misbehaving. What bizar re beings we can be! Bed-wetting or loss of bladder control occurs when there is improper function of the valve (sphincter), which controls the flow of urine from the bladder. Many people think of it as a faucet or a spigot - turning on the flow of urine from the bladder. So, what controls this faucet? Good question. This valve is simply a ring of muscle which contracts, or relaxes, to control urine flow. So what controls this ring of muscle - this valve? You would be surprised to learn that this valve is under total control of the nervous system - that internal INTERNET that runs your program. This valve actually has two sets of nerves, which control its function; one is under voluntary control, which
