Elder’s Jeremy White is congratulated at home after scoring the only run in the fifth inning of the Panthers 1-0 victory over Moeller in the state Division I state semifinal baseball game June 4 in Columbus.

Elder a win short of state title The Elder Panthers got past their Greater Catholic League rival Friday, June 4, but couldn’t get past Lakewood St. Edwards in the state Division I state baseball final Sunday, June 6. The Panthers dropped the final game 8-3 to St. Edwards, which won its second state title in three years. And they saw a pitcher who was expected to be drafted in the first round of the Major League Baseball draft. Stetson Allie stuck out 16 Panthers in six innings Sunday to lead St. Edwards to the victory. His third pitch of the game registered 101 mph on a radar gun. “We saw that,” senior shortstop Selby Chidemo said. “We were pretty much in awe, but we still thought we could get to him.” Elder coach Mark Thompson

That’s why he’s going to be a multi-millionaire (someday).” The Eagles opened a 8-0 lead before the Panthers could break through. Elder scored all of their runs in the sixth inning, and loaded the bases in the seventh – after Allie was replaced by Cody Cooper. But Jacob Lindsey ground into a double play

to end the game. The Panthers, ranked No. 2 in the state polls, got to the final game by beating Moeller 1-0 Friday. That game ended when Moeller’s Max Belza left second early on a flyout in the seventh inning for an inning-ending double play. Elder starting pitcher Brian Korte held Moeller in check. “You never know what you’re going to get against Moe,” Korte said. “I worked out of some jams and got lucky they didn’t score. Against that team, they’re so wellcoached, you’ve just got to throw strikes and be at your best.”

The East Price Hill Improvement Association invites residents to gather to socialize and listen to great music while raising money for a concert series the organization is producing. Association members are hosting a jazz social from 6-10 p.m. Friday, June 18, at the Warsaw Project Art Gallery, 3116 Warsaw Ave., across from the District 3 police station. The event is a fundraiser for “EPHIA presents Jazz,” an upcoming concert series the association is sponsoring later this year. “EPHIA presents Jazz is a new concert series celebrating East Price Hill, its diversity and America’s greatest original art form – jazz,” said Raymond Busche, an association member coordinating the event. Busche said award-winning pianist Ricky Nye, who specializes in boogie-woogie, blues and New Orleans style music, will perform at the jazz social from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The social will also feature a variety of adult beverages provided by Pratt Family Brewing, as well as jambalaya and chicken and sausage gumbo while supplies last. Admission to the event is a minimum donation of $15 per person. Association member Patti Hogan said the jazz social and upcoming jazz concert series are great events for the Price Hill community. “These events will exposition the arts in East Price Hill,” she said. “Mount Echo Park, the venue for at least the first concert in the jazz series, is one of East Price Hill’s most cherished assets with a breathtaking view of the city and beautiful rolling hills. These events have the potential of bringing people from all over the city, county and Tristate, allowing them to share some of Price Hill’s great features.” Busche said the Wegman family has allowed the use of the Warsaw Project Art Gallery for the jazz social, and the Price Hill Community Center, 959 Hawthorne Ave., will provide parking for the evening. “I am hoping that this will be a very fun and exciting social event for East Price Hill,” Busche said.

Pen pals greet their soldier hero By Heidi Fallon

Army Maj. Robert Baker received a hero’s welcome when he visited his alma mater and fourth-grade pen pals at C.O. Harrison Elementary School. Baker, who attended the school and is a 1993 Oak Hills High School graduate, has been writing and receiving letters from students in Julie Lengerich’s class since September. “I learned about Major Baker and we started writing,” Lengerich said. “He was kind enough to write back and even sent us a flag that had flown over Al-Faw palace outside Baghdad.” Knowing that Baker was going to be in town to visit family, the class arranged to have him visit and greeted him in style. Students made banners and ribbons for Baker, along with a special piece of art work of their handprints with poems. “I told them I don’t consider myself a hero,” Baker said. “But, they made me feel special with all they did.” Baker, who returned to Fort Leavenworth after meeting what has become his fan club, said he spent a year serving in Iraq. One of his most


Major Robert Baker visits fourth graders at CO Harrison Elementary School, his own elementary school, in Delhi Township who were his pen pals while he was stationed in Iraq. Students read their final letters to him, made art for him, and shared how excited they were to get his letters and flag flown over his base. Baker presents Blake Michaelis with a pen and an Army laundry bag. Blake wants to go into the Army like his dad and grandfather. unabashed admirers is 9year-old Blake Michaelis. “I want to join the army when I’m old enough,” he said. “I want to serve my country like Major Baker. Both my grandfathers were in the army, and so was my dad, my uncle and my dad’s friend.” Michaelis and his classmates said they enjoyed reading Baker’s letters. “He would tell us about what he was doing there, about the weather and would answer all the questions we asked him,” Michaelis said. “He wrote us some pretty cool stuff.”

Lengerich said while her students learned a bit about writing letters, they learned a great deal more about doing something for others. “It went beyond academics,” she said. “It was about doing something for somebody else and making them feel good and, in turn, feeling good about yourself. “The ceremony we had for Major Baker was certainly not about us,” she added. “The kids wanted to show him how much he means to us and how much they admire his courage.”

Former Cincinnati police officer jailed for sex assault Gannett News Service Retired Cincinnati police Lt. Jack Packett ended his career with a good record but now he’s a felon and convicted sex offender who is off to prison for two years – a sentence his victim said in court June 3 is far too lenient.

“I would like to see him get the electric chair but I know that’s not going to happen,” the developmentally disabled woman told Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Jerome Metz. Packett, 67, of Delhi Township, was accused of forcing the woman to perform sex acts on him but accepted

an April plea deal where he admitted to four counts of sexual touching and accepted a two-year prison term.

Granddaughter honors Hall recipient

Betty Lancaster received the 2010 Hall of Honor award recently from the Oak Hills School District Educational Foundation. Her granddaughter, Jessica Carraher, who lives in Monfort Heights, wrote a letter to nominate her grandmother and Jessica accepted the award for her. The letter: “One year ago, Bridgetown Middle School lost a person that helped shape it into the amazing school that it is today. My grandmother, Betty Lancaster, spent 22 years as the secretary at Bridgetown Elementary and eventually Bridgetown Junior High. She was the face that every student passed in the morning, every parent talked to on the phone, and every staff member laughed with in the office. “She became the face of Bridgetown for 22 years. When Willard Sweeder hired her, he didn’t realize that he was hiring a friend for life. She worked with many members of this great school district over her years of service and developed many long lasting friendships. “Betty was not only the face

behind the desk at Bridgetown, she was also one of the many faces of the district. She was a dedicated member of the PTA and in the school levies. She was always out in the neighborhoods trying to persuade people to vote for her school that she so loved. She was photographed and written up in local papers several times, always proudly wearing her Bridgetown and Oak Hills shirts and hats. “My grandmother always had a passion for drama and music and she wanted to share this love with everyone. She knew that students could benefit from showcasing their own passions with others. She was the originator of Bridgetown’s original Talent Town. This is the school’s talent show that still takes place every year. Students get a chance to show off their talents with their peers.” She, along with my grandfather and others, directed the show for many years to follow. Talent Town is one of the many things that makes Bridgetown such a wonderful school. As a Bridgetown alum, I can say that it is one of things that students look

forward to each year and I cannot imagine what the school would be like without it. “Grandma Betty left us on Feb. 28, 2009. She was always so proud of her job. When we were young, she would always tell us stories of all the fun she had organizing talent shows, working on the levy, or just with the day to day events at school. She never did all of this for acknowledgment or awards, she simply did it because she loved her job, the district, the students, and her friends. “Betty did it all for the goodness of the school and of the district. I know that she would have been thrilled to see the amazing turnout from everyone at her funeral. From superintendents, to principals, teachers, and other secretaries, they all showed up to honor her. It really was an Oak Hills reunion. “I would love to honor her permanently at the place she loved and spent 22 amazing years. They used to joke and say ‘BJHS doesn’t stand for Bridgetown Junior High School, it stands for Betty’s Junior High School.’ She gave so much to the school that she loved so much.”

He had dedicated his life to the family business and could now look for work elsewhere or go into retirement. But Purkiser gave Ackerman a third option months later, in August, when he proposed the idea of opening their own service center. They opened Glenway Auto Center June 1 in the former Ohio E-Check building at 6135 Harrison Ave. Both men knew they wanted to stay in the auto industry. “It’s what we knew how to do,” said Ackerman. They began looking for possible locations for their service center later that month. They first noticed the old E-check building because of its size. Lease negotiations began in August and were not final-

ized until the first of May. The transformation of the building into Glenway Auto Center took about a month. “We have done a lot of work and we are still working on some things, but we set the goal for June 1 and decided we would make that goal,” said Ackerman. Renovations included a new office, paint, stocking of parts, and new equipment such as lifts and flush machines. “We did all the work ourselves except for the technical things like electricity and plumbing,” said Purkiser. “We worked all day until there was nothing left to do.” Glenway Auto Center is much different from the dealership. The new service center only services vehicles – it doesn’t sell cars or offer body work. At Glenway Chevrolet, the service center rarely serviced non GM cars. At Glenway Auto Center, Ackerman and Purkiser welcome all makes and models.

Panthers find a way against Moeller

By Tony Meale

Elder High School head baseball coach Mark Thompson was spot-on in his analysis. “Third time’s a charm,” he said. “That’s a hell of a game.” What else do you say? In the Division I state semifinal at Huntington Park in Columbus June 4, Elder became only the second team to beat Moeller this year and the first – and only – to do so by shutout. “We were pretty focused coming in,” said senior shortstop Selby Chidemo. “They beat us twice, and the second time was a heartbreaker. We really needed this win for us.” Moeller entered the state showdown ranked first in Ohio and third in the country. Winners of 27 straight, the Crusaders were averaging 12 runs per game in the playoffs, but, try as they might, they couldn’t rattle Elder senior southpaw Brian Korte. “You never know what you’re going to get against Moe,” Korte said. “I worked out of some jams and got lucky they didn’t score. Against that team, they’re so wellcoached, you’ve just got to throw strikes and be at your best.” Korte, however, wasn’t at his best in the early innings but eventually settled down. He walked four, hit a pair of batters and struck out seven. “He started to get his off-speed pitches over for strikes,” Thompson said. “He made it a lot tougher on their hitters.” With one out and two on in the bottom of the seventh, Thompson turned to senior hurler Matt Pate, who earned his third save of the year. “Matt’s been great,” Korte said. “He came in, they had runners on base, and he just shut the door.” The Panthers, which notched their fifth shutout of the year, induced three inning-ending double-plays against Moeller, including one to end the game that you don’t see every day. Moeller senior Max Belza tried to tag-up from second to third on a fly out by teammate Robby Sunderman, but Belza left the bag before Elder right fielder Cody Makin could make the catch.


Elder senior Brian Korte nervously paces the dugout as teammates hug the railing in the bottom of the seventh inning against Moeller. Korte worked 6.1 innings before being replaced by Matt Pate, who earned the save. Elder won 1-0.

Thompson – along with most of the Elder dugout – pointed frantically to second base for an appeal. Belza was called out, sending Elder to its first state-title game since 2005.


Elder senior Brian Korte unwinds against Moeller. The Crusaders entered the game averaging 12 runs per game in the playoffs and winners of 27 straight, but Korte held them scoreless for the first time this season and moved to 9-0 with the win.

“It was a miscommunication between (Belza and Moeller head coach Tim Held),” Thompson said. “(Belza) was looking at the coach, and the coach was saying, ‘Come on to me,’ and the runner did not watch the catch and left early. I didn’t know if the umpire saw it, but that’s the good thing about four-umpire systems. They catch those things. Those little things are just magnified so much.” Held knew the game was over even before the umpire signaled the out. “I started talking to Max right away, telling him, ‘It’s all my fault. Don’t let anybody tell you otherwise,’” Held said. “Max is just doing what the coach is telling him to do. It’s all on my shoulders.” Elder plated the only run of the game in the sixth inning on a single by senior centerfielder Tim O’Conner to score senior Jeremy White, who reached on a one-out single and advanced to second after a wild pitch and to third on a passed ball. “Timmy’s been in those situations,” Thompson said. “He’s a big-time player.” O’Conner, in fact, set a schoolrecord for most RBI in a season this year; he had 47 entering the state final. The previous mark was held by Bart Marchetti, who knocked in 36 runs in 1994. “To break that record at Elder is saying something,” Thompson said. O’Conner’s RBI was all Korte would need, which surprised even him. “I thought we were going to score some runs,” Korte said. “I knew they had (Moeller senior David Whitehead) on the mound and that he was going to be

tough, but I didn’t think it was going to be a 1-0 game. I knew I had to hold them.” Korte, who moved to 9-0 this year, has allowed two runs over his last seven postseason starts.

“He pitched like he has all season,” Chidemo said. Despite how close the game was, Korte thought this team did an excellent job of staying loose, especially against a conference rival that dominated them 9-1 in the early season and came from behind to beat them 4-3 May 3. “Moeller’s the No. 3 in the country and expecting to win,” Korte said. “We had nothing to lose.” The state final game had been postponed to 3 p.m. Sunday, June 6, at Huntington Park.

Elder volleyball overcomes Moeller mystique we step on the court against them.” Entering the Division I state final, which was played at Centerville May 30, Elder had lost six straight matches to Moeller and, dating back to 2003, was 1-5 in its previous six playoff games against the Crusaders, including a pair of 3-2 losses in the state final in 2007 and 2009. All that changed May 30, when Elder beat Moeller

By Tony Meale

In the most important match of the season, the Elder High School volleyball team found an answer for the Moeller mystique. “Moeller has a reputation for being a very accomplished program with an excellent coaching staff,” Elder head coach Sean Tierney said. “So there’s a sense of intimidation every time

3-1 (23-25, 31-29, 25-20, 25-19) to win the school’s fourth state volleyball title and second in three years. “Before the match, we told our guys not to worry about the name on the back of the jersey,” Tierney said. “Sometimes we psyche ourselves out and think, ‘It’s Moeller. We have to play perfectly to win.’ But it was nice getting a little redemption.” Tierney was admittedly PROVIDED.

worried after his team dropped the first game of the match. “There were certainly some doubts creeping into my mind,” he said. “But I told the boys in the huddle before the second game, ‘Hey, we haven’t lost anything yet, and they haven’t won anything yet. You have to win three games.’ And then they came right out (and played well).” Elder didn’t lose another game. Leading the Panthers was senior middle hitter and GCL-South Co-Player of the Year Matt Harpenau, who had 19 kills. “Matt helped us turn things around,” Tierney said. Other Panthers pitching in were senior John Lucas (eight blocks, seven digs) and juniors Andrew Barnette (10 blocks), Ryan Welch (23 digs) and Matt Moehring (13 kills, 15 digs). Seniors Steven Kent

(20) and Chad Thornton (22), meanwhile, combined for 42 assists. “It was a team effort,” Tierney said. “Everyone from top to bottom did a fantastic job of preparing.” Tierney said a 3-1 statequarterfinals victory of St. Edward, which entered the match ranked No. 1 in the state, propelled the Panthers to the championship. Elder has now appeared in four straight state-title matches, a feat Tierney attributes to a tough regular season schedule. “Coming through the GCL is very difficult,” he said. “We play hard competition so you’re prepared in the postseason.” A GCL-South team has won 12 of the last 14 state volleyball titles, including eight straight. Moeller has six state titles (1997-98, 2004-05, 2007, 2009), Elder has four (1999, 2000, 2008, 2010) and St. Xavier has two

(2003, 2006). Elder’s run to the title this year wasn’t as dominant as compared to previous years – The Panthers’ first three state-title squads were a combined 80-1, while the 2010 team finishes 23-6 – which was just fine with Tierney. “We really wanted to instill in our boys that winning tournaments is fun and good and going undefeated is exciting,” he said. “But the most important thing is to be playing your best volleyball in May.” Other contributors for the Panthers this season include seniors Alex Redrow, Tyler Hoffman, Nick Boeing and C.J. Zureick; and juniors Anthony Monk, Chad Kunze, Bryan Coorey and Andrew Burkhart. “What happened this year wouldn’t have happened without everyone helping,” Tierney said.

Last week’s question: What was the best advice your father gave you, and did you follow it? What happened? “The best advice my father ever gave me – Be true to yourself and your family. Work hard, play hard. Be honest. Have fun … Life here on earth is way too short – enjoy it. “Thanks dad - I love you!” L.R. “My father gave me advice by the way he lived his life. I try daily to follow his example. He showed me how to overcome failure, forgive, laugh, listen and most importantly how to love unconditionally. He is my hero! He touched so many lives during his 74 years on earth. We all miss him.” D.R. “The best advice my father gave was when I was in high school and had a paycheck from my first job. I wanted to open a charge card from a department store down town, (Shillito’s). My father advised me to open a card requiring the balance be paid off in full each month instead of paying a minimum balance and accruing finance charges.

I came to find out that to be very true on several occasions; someone gave me something for nothing and it usually turned out that I would pay more to keep in repair than if I had gone out and purchased the item new.” L.S. “In addition to teaching me to be honest, he always said to not start a fight.

Tips for the gardening season Watch for heat-related illness

Gardening offers many benefits including the opportunity to increase physical activity and eat nutritious vegetables. However, there are some important tips to remember to stay safe and healthy this gardening season.

Get vaccinated

• All adults should get a tetanus vaccination every 10 years. Tetanus lives in the soil and enters the body through breaks in the skin. While using sharp tools to dig in the dirt, and handling plants with sharp points, you are particularly prone to tetanus infections during gardening season. • Before you start gardening this season, make sure your tetanus/diphtheria vaccination is up to date.

Dress to protect

• Wear long sleeves, widebrimmed hats, sunglasses and sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher for protection from the sun. • Protect yourself from diseases like West Nile virus and Lyme disease caused by mosquitoes and ticks by using insect repellent containing DEET, and also wear longsleeved shirts and pants tucked in your socks. • Wear safety goggles, earplugs, gloves, sturdy shoes and long pants as appropriate when using lawn mowers, other machinery, chemicals or sharp tools.

Put safety first

• Follow instructions and warning labels on chemicals and garden equipment. • Make sure equipment is working properly and sharpen tools carefully to reduce the risk for injury. • Pregnant women should be particularly careful to wash hands after gardening and before eating fruits or vegetables from a garden to reduce the risk of toxoplasma infection.

Tim Ingram Community Press guest columnist





Editor Marc Emral | | 853-6264

• Even short periods of time in high temperatures can cause serious health problems. Monitor your activities and time in the sun to lower your risk for heat-related

illness. • Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink. • Avoid drinking liquids that contain alcohol or large amounts of sugar; these actually cause you to lose more body fluid. • Take breaks often and stop working if you experience breathlessness or muscle soreness. • Pay attention to signs of heatrelated illness, including extremely high body temperature, headache, rapid pulse, dizziness, nausea, confusion or unconsciousness.

Know your limits

• If you have been inactive, start slow with just a few minutes of physical activity and gradually build up time and intensity. • If you are taking medications that may make you drowsy or impair your judgment or reaction time, don’t operate machinery, climb ladders, or do activities that may increase your risk for injury. • Listen to your body. Monitor your level of fatigue, heart rate and physical discomfort. Following these safety precautions will ensure you can stay healthy to enjoy your homegrown produce all season long. Tim Ingram is the health commissioner for Hamilton County.




As president of the Delhi Citizens’ Police Association, I would like to say thanks to all of our sponsors and golfers who have once again come through to help make our sixth outing a success. Although the number of golfers was down slightly from last year, we were able to raise over $6,700 dollars. The profit from the outing is used to provide items for our department that are not normally in their budget. We already have a wish list to fill. We could not do this without everyone in and out of our township, and all who contribute. Thank you. Tom Winkler President Delhi Citizens’ Police Association

Freemasons were influential Freemasons are the world’s oldest and largest fraternal organization, with 5 millions member’s world wide, and 2 million in the United States. The most influential members of a community were usually Freemasons. America’s most famous were George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. In Cincinnati, John Cleves Symmes was a Freemason from New Jersey. He brought a chair with him in a covered wagon and was instrumental in starting the Cincinnati chapter. About half the Revolutionary War generals were Freemasons including Lafayette and Von Steuben. Freemasons started showing up around the end of the 16th and beginning of the 17th century. There are rumors that they were founded by the Knights Templar or that the Knights Templar took refuge in the Freemasons after their persecution. Throughout history the Freemasons have been accused of Satanism, anarchism, witchcraft and murder, and were killed during the Holocaust. At times in history they were thought to be a religion, because of their rituals and secrecy. Today each lodge is an independent organization. They elect officers but they have different titles. They have worshipful masters, senior and junior wardens, secretary, treasurer, senior deacon, junior deacon, senior steward, junior steward, and a tyler, whose job is to guard the door while the lodge is in session. The worship master appointed deacons, stewards, and a chaplain to lead non-denominational prayers. To become a mason you have to petition for membership and be voted

They use gestures, grips, tokens, handshakes and words to gain admission to meetings and to identify legitimate visitors. Each lodge sets their own rituals, but all lodges display the tools of the medieval stonemason, plus a square and compass. They are used as lessons in conduct. The Masons should “square their actions by the square of virtue” and to learn to “circumscribe their desires and keep their passions within due bounds toward all mankind”. There are three levels of masons, Entered Apprentice, Fellow Craft and Master Mason. In Sayler Park the Monitor Lodge No. 445 F& AM, started in 1870 at Gracely and Elco. They met on Monday on or before the full moon. That building was torn down in 1892. The second meeting place was a three story building that was destroyed by fire in 1894; I don’t know where it was located. They started meeting at Thomas Kite’s house on Chelsea Place.

Like the founding father the members of the Monitor Lodge were the most influential in the community. There are still Freemason lodges in existence.

Bill will help fund Catholic schools As you may know, I have been working for nearly a year to direct money to chartered non-public schools – 70 percent of which are Catholic schools. As a graduate of Seton High School and a mother of two Catholic school graduates, I fully appreciate how important Catholic school education is to our children and our community. While offering legislation to provide additional dollars for Catholic schools, I have been careful not to deplete the foundation fund that provides for public school education. It is necessary to keep an adequate amount of money in the foundation line so that the state is eligible to draw down maximum funds from the federal government for public school education. Recently, as a member of the Finance and Appropriations Committee, I offered an amendment, which directs $10 million for use by chartered

non-public schools. A total of $35 million will be transferred from the Lottery Profits Education Reserve Fund with $25 million to be used to balance state budgets and ensure Ohio’s eligibility for federal dollars. The other $10 million is reserved exclusively for charted non-public schools. The amendment was part of Senate Bill 181 and was passed out of the Ohio House with both Democratic and Republican support. As the bill moves back to the Senate for consideration, I am hopeful that the bill will pass so that the money will be made available to Catholic Schools and the other chartered non-publics. I have worked closely with the Ohio Catholic Conference, the Ohio Department of Education, my colleagues in the Ohio House and members of the Governor’s education staff to find dollars for Catholic Schools. The support of these groups has been inte-

Does God’s love always go easy on us?

The scriptures insist that God loves us. The problem is we’re confused about what love is and the ways it can be shown. To us, love is always pleasing, comforting and brings pleasant feelings. In love stories it’s always accompanied by violins, roses and dinners on the town. It’s understandable then, when we hear that God loves us, that we expect to live on Easy Street. Televangelists urge us to turn ourselves over to God. If we do, they imply, God will heal our illnesses, give us twice as much money as we donate, and take the rough times out of our lives. When this doesn’t happen we may think it means God doesn’t hear, doesn’t care, doesn’t love. Cynicism and despair can nest in our minds. Suppose a sculptor promised only good feelings to a block of

marble as he brought forth a beautiful statue from within it. If he did promise that, he could never strike the first blow. The marble could Father Lou legitimately comGuntzelman plain that the was Perspectives sculptor being untrue to his word. Parents have their young son inoculated though he cries. They enroll their daughter in school though she’s homesick. Young children experience times they doubt their parents love because of unpleasant events they don’t understand. At times, good parents seem rough – but it’s for love’s sake. God does too. Love can be

expressed in many ways. It can be playful, sacrificial, giving, formative, romantic, passionate and demanding. Recently we’ve coined the term “tough love.” It expresses unpleasant demands made on the one loved for their greater good – even though making the demands may pain the one making them. Real love is not known only for stroking egos but for forming them. We accept bad-tasting medicine because we trust the love of the one who administers it. Why is it, then, when we look for signs of God’s love, we expect them to only be those things that make us comfortable? An insightful prayer says: “I asked God to take away my sickness and give me health, but he permitted my illness to continue longer so I could learn compassion for others; I prayed for a better-

paying job, and instead he gave me appreciation for what I already have.” God’s love doesn’t always come in the language of human logic. In his autobiography, Nikos Kazantzakis tells how as a young man he went to visit a famous monk: He found the old monk in a cave. He writes: “I did not know what to say… Finally I gathered up courage. ‘Do you still wrestle with the devil, Father Makarios?’ I asked him.” “Not any longer, my child. I have grown old now and he has grown old with me. He doesn’t have the strength… I wrestle with God.” “With God!’ I exclaimed in astonishment. And you hope to win?” “I hope to lose, my child.” Like a child lacking insight, we

all wrestle with God at times about what is good for us and what is not. We accuse God of dealing with us uncaringly because he allows us to sometimes be harshly treated by life and seems to do nothing to help us. Understandably, we think we know what’s good for us in our struggles. Sometimes we do. But only Perfect Love knows perfectly. Simone Weil says, “Isn’t the greatest possible disaster, when you are wresting with God, not to be beaten?” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Graduates need to plug their health insurance gap This is the time of year when students are graduating from college and looking for work. They have a lot on their minds and, perhaps because of that, they may not be thinking about one important thing they need to get – health insurance. College students are generally covered under their parent’s health insurance plan, but when they graduate that coverage ends and they must get their own insurance. They can do so under their parents’ COBRA plan, or they can take out their own coverage until they get a job that provides health insurance. Kelly Ives of Ross learned even a short gap in coverage can cause major problems. “I graduated from college last year, in March 2009. After that I was employed, but it took about two months for my insurance to be activated. It’s mandatory for new hires, anywhere

you go, that it t a k e s about 30 to 60 days for insurance to kick in,” Howard Ain IvesWsaid. hen Hey Howard! she got the insurance she sent a copy of a certificate showing she had health insurance under her parents’ plan, but it turns out that wasn’t good enough. “Unfortunately, I got sick in December 2009, and now currently I’m in a battle with the insurance company – and have been for six months,” she said. “They’re refusing to pay because I had a break in coverage for two months.” Ives was hospitalized for five days and ran up thousands of dollars in medical bills. “It was just a bacterial

infection. I had gotten an ear infection and it just kept going on and on. Over time it grew into a bigger infection that had to be treated with antibiotics and steroids in the hospital because it had gotten so bad,” she said. Ives says her bills now total more than $10,000, and the collection letters are hurting her credit rating. “The first couple of bills that came in the insurance paid for,” she said. “Once they realized it was going to be a significant amount of money, they backed off and said, ‘Well, this is not our responsibility.’” This experience shows the importance for graduating students, either high school or college who are going out into the workforce, to get their own health insurance policy without a break in coverage. A new Ohio law takes effect July first that allows

parents to request coverage for their dependent children on their employer’s plan until they reach age 28 – even if they are not in college. They can request this coverage on their policy’s first renewal date on or after July first. A new federal law takes

effect Sept. 23, giving parents the right to give health insurance to their dependent children until they reach age 26, also whether or not they are in college. Some employers and insurers are allowing graduating students to stay on their parent’s health plan

Chicken piccata

Rita Heikenfeld Rita’s kitchen

This is what I served to participants of a heart healthy class I taught recently. It was delicious. When I make this at home, I use real butter and it’s still a relatively healthy dish. 4 chicken cutlets 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 ⁄4 cup dry white wine like Chardonnay 1 teaspoon garlic, minced 1 ⁄2 cup fat free low sodium chicken broth 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1 tablespoon capers, drained, rinsed and drained again 2 tablespoons healthy butter substitute (or even real butter if you like) Fresh lemon slices Fresh chopped parsley Season cutlets with salt and pepper (go very light on salt) and dust with flour, shaking off excess. Sauté 23 minutes per side. When sautéing other side, cover pan with serving platter – this keeps moisture in the cutlets and also

warms the platter. Don’t overcook. Transfer to warm platter. Deglaze pan with wine and add garlic. Cook until garlic is only slightly golden and liquid is nicely reduced. Add broth, lemon juice and capers. Return cutlets to pan and cook a minute or so on each side. Put back on platter. Stir in butter substitute and pour over cutlets. Garnish with lemon slices and parsley.

Like Lofthouse Cookies

Reader Annie Hoffman is a fine baker and shared this recipe. called it “The Best rolled Sugar Cookie.” Anyone who has eaten those Lofthouse cookies that you buy will like having this clone to make at home. I haven’t yet tried it but intend to do so this week. For the readers who request this on an on-going basis. 1 ⁄2 cup soft butter 2 ⁄3 cup sugar 11⁄3 eggs **see Annie’s note for measuring 12⁄3 cups all purpose flour 3 ⁄4 teaspoon baking powder 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄4 teaspoon vanilla extract In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt which have been whisked together. Cover and chill

For Sally. “Looking for a clone for the rub and dressing – salad is amazing.” Old Shillito’s seasoning for fried chicken. For Grace Robinson. “A couple came in every year and made fried chicken right on the first floor. I bought the seasoning from them way back when. It was called ‘Vadon’ and had salt, black pepper, white pepper, other spices & herbs. It was the best in the world and I can’t find anything like it.” dough for at least one hour or overnight. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roll out dough on floured surface 1⁄2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter dipped in flour. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 6 to 8 minutes, the trick here is not to get them too brown, just until the edges seem to brown slightly. Cool, leave out overnight uncovered and then frost with butter cream, then add sprinkles. Now you cover them if there are any left! Ice as desired. **Annie just beats one egg in a cup and takes a third out of it.

Buttercream frosting

The real deal. This is a soft icing. 11⁄2 cups butter, softened 4 cups confectioners’ sugar 2 tablespoons half & half or milk 1 teaspoon vanilla or other extract Beat butter until creamy, gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add

half & half; beat until spreading consistency. Stir in vanilla. Refrigerate leftovers up to two weeks.

Browned butter frosting

For the reader who wanted this old fashioned icing to top banana cake. 1 stick (1/2 cup) cup real butter 4 cups confectioners’ sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla 3-5 tablespoons milk. Melt butter over medium heat. Cook 4-6 minutes, stirring constantly and watching closely, until butter just begins to turn golden - it will get foamy and bubble. Remove from heat right away. Cool 15 minutes. Then beat in sugar, vanilla and enough milk to make frosting smooth. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. E-mail m with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line.

Camps for kids with visual impairments

More places to Laffalot this summer Laffalot Summer Camp is adding five new camps locations this summer. The camp, which have been operating for 20 years, will add camps at St. Ignatius, Springdale Community Center, St. James in Wyoming, St. John’s in Dry Ridge, and St. Vivian’s in Finneytown. “We feel we have made it convenient for all families to find a location near them,” says Pat Nymberg, who started the camps in 1990.

Laffalot Summer Camps bring a blend of fun and athletics for kids currently in grades one through six. Children participate in traditional sports, enjoy non-traditional athletics such as scooter basketball, pillo pollo and crazy ball as well as some of the programs zanier activities. “Too much time is spent in either sedentary activities like TV and video games, or single skill athletics,” says Nymberg. “Kids at this age need to use all muscle

Growing stevia – the natural sweetener Growing herbs can be a pleasure for all your senses. And if you’re looking for an herb to help pleasure your sweet tooth, an herb that has no carbs and no calories, then here’s what you need! It’s called stevia, or commonly called “sweet leaf” or “sugar bush,” and has been used as a natural sweetener for hundreds of years. The leaves of stevia are refreshing and can be 30 times sweeter than sugar (extracts hundreds times sweeter), with 0 carbs, 0 calories, and 0 glycemic index, making it the perfect natural sweetener to be considered for diabetics (check with your doctor first). And what’s even greater is that it can be grown in your own back yard – especially in containers! Stevia is a tender perenni-

al, and is not hardy past Zone 7. So plant it as an annual (actually planted as an annual in warmer zones as well). It will grow in the ground or in containers, morning sun, afternoon shade to full sun. It actually enjoys cooler weather, and definitely not the hot weather. In the south, it may require some summer shading. In the ground, stevia requires loamy well-drained soils, but by the same token, enjoys good even moisture. Mounded row plantings, like with corn, are perfect for stevia. Locate in half- to full-day sun, mulch the roots to help retain moisture and keep the soil cooler during the heat of the summer. Pick a less windy site, and feed monthly with an all purpose plant

food such as Espoma’s PlantTone. In containers, plant one stevia plant per 10-12 inch or larger pot, using the basic container gardening instructions. Use Osmocote for a slow season long feeding, Soil Moist to help keep good even moisture, and feed monthly with PlantTone or something similar. Place the pot in half day or more sun, low wind area, and keep the soil evenly moist. Stevia does not like to be totally dried out for any period of time (not soggy wet, just good even moisture). In the heat of the summer, you may want to move the plant to a cooler half day sun location. When harvesting, pinch the tips of the stevia plant every 3-4 weeks (3-4 inch-

es) to keep the plant s h o r t e r, fuller and less susceptible to Ron Wilson w i n d In the garden breakage. Use the pinched leaves “fresh.” Stevia is susceptible to wind breakage, so try to find a more calm area to grow or possibly place inside a tomato cage for support. Harvest your leaves fresh as needed (morning is best), or harvest leaves or 4-6 inch branches with leaves for air drying. V i s i t for more information on using stevia.

Oak Hills grad is Ranger competitor Part of being a Ranger in the United States Army is accepting the challenge to be the best. When the opportunity of being the best of the best came in the form of an Graves Army competition, the challenge was too good to pass up for the son of a Cincinnati couple. Staff Sgt. Brett M. Graves, son of Richard and Betty Klein, Ebenezer Road, recently competed in the 27th annual David E. Grange Jr. Best Ranger Competition for the chance to be one of the best. “It’s more of a personal goal,” said

Graves, a 2000 graduate of Oak Hills High School. “I wanted to physically and mentally challenge myself to the fullest.” The Best Ranger Competition covers more than 60 miles in 60 hours with various events in a marathon style “Ranger Olympics” that includes running, marching, swimming, obstacle courses, marksmanship, orienteering, and basic Ranger skills events like parachute jumps, rappelling and first aid. For Graves, the preparation for Best Ranger was almost as rough as the competition itself. “We did extensive physical training five days a week,” said Graves, who represented an 82nd Airborne Divi-

sion team. “We road marched longer and faster than usual. We also ran long distances.” Hour after hour, mile after mile, and event after event, Graves gave everything he had to be one of the final teams standing at the very end of the competition. Regardless of the results, he can take pride in knowing he competed in one of the most difficult competitions the Army has to offer. “Ideally, I want a win,” said Graves. With the 2010 Best Ranger Competition now behind him, Graves is already planning on returning for another go at being the Best Ranger. “As of right now, I will compete again,” he said.

GUMP-HOLT Funeral Home “Believe in Yourself” We all know that life is not an everlasting picnic in perfect weather. On the contrary, it’s a matter of struggle, a mixture of triumph and failure, joy and sorrow. In our daily lives we continually face difficult decisions, trying circumstances and situations. It may be hard for us at times to face these issues and realize that even the most strong and most favored persons in life have their share of burdens too. It takes courage to keep on going when circumstances conspire to thwart our hopes and aspirations. Yet burdens born in the right spirit have a way of building character and making us strong and sufficient as we face the problems in life. Burdens can and often do teach us great lessons. Nathaniel Hawthorne, who traveled a difficult road before he found the key to triumph, once said, “He must keep his faith in himself while the incredulous world assail him with its utter disbelief.”.. That, we suspect, is where all of us have to begin when our hopes are thwarted. Faith in ourselves is one thing we never can afford to surrender. It is the key to courage to keep on going when we feel drained. When we cease to believe in ourselves and our God-given powers and possibilities, we are finished. It is the man who can go on believing in himself while the incredulous world assails him with its utter unbelief who come Marilyn Holt thru undefeated.
