St. William in midst of celebrating its centennial By Kurt Backscheider

St. William Church is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, and the parish has several events planned to celebrate. “We kicked off the centennial celebration at noon on July 19,” said the Rev. Andrew Umberg, pastor of St. William. “We unfurled the centennial banners in front of the church, and those banners will stay up until June of next year.” Umberg said St. William was founded Nov. 1, 1909, the same day a group of parishioners loaded into a car with the church’s first pastor, the Rev. Francis Roth, and drove to Archbishop Henry Moeller’s home in Norwood to request a new parish be established. He said the archbishop granted the request that day, officially marking St. William Church’s founding as Nov. 1, 1909. Since the church was founded in November, he said one of the main events of the parish’s anniversary celebrations is set for Sunday, Nov. 8, when Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr will serve as the celebrant at the 11 a.m. centennial liturgy. Umberg said a reception will follow Mass in Father Reardon Hall below the church. And since the first time St. William parishioners ever met for an official organized meeting was Jan. 31, 1910, he said the second main event celebrating the anniversary will be

the Centennial Banquet at the Farm in Delhi Township on Jan. 30, 2010. He said the banquet will be for adults only. “We have scheduled the big events to closely coincide with the important dates associated with the founding of St. William,” he said. Other scheduled events include the annual parish festival, which is being dubbed the Centennial Festival this year and runs Aug. 21-23; the Centennial Oktoberfest celebration Sept. 12 and 13; and a big prayer event in October. Umberg said no date has been set for the prayer event, but it will be a special 40 hours of devotion. “There is something planned for every month,” he said. St. William will sell commemorative gifts such as golf visors and beer mugs at the upcoming events, as well as special ornaments commemorating the centennial around Christmas, he said. The parish’s capital campaign, called the Centennial Campaign, to raise money for repairs and improvements is also ongoing from now until next June. Umberg said Price Hill residents are welcome to join St. William parishioners at all the festivities celebrating the church’s 100th anniversary. “We think St. William is a very important institution to Price Hill,” he said, “to Catholics and non-Catholics alike.”

Seton’s president values tradition By Kurt Backscheider

Sister Patricia Cruise said her main goal as the new president of Seton High School is to continue building upon the strong foundation that has already been laid at the school. “We need to continue to move forward for the young women who choose to come here,” said Cruise, a Sister of Charity. “This is where the Sisters of Charity education in Cincinnati began. It has a long history of educating women and I think that is so important for our society. “I am dedicated to contin- Cruise uing the important ministry of Seton and the mission of the Sisters of Charity,” she said. Cruise joins Seton after serving as president and CEO of Covenant House International, the largest privately funded nonprofit child care agency in North and Central America. She has also served as executive vice president and chief operating officer at Red Cloud Indian School on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. “I have ministered in the poorest county in the United States and to the homeless children in six countries,” she said. “The piece that allows them to survive – beyond crisis care, food and clothing – is access to a loving education.” Sister Kathryn Ann Connelly, a Sister of Charity who chairs Seton’s board of trustees, said she is delighted Cruise is the school’s new president. “As a Sister of Charity, Sister Tricia is steeped in the mission and ministry of Elizabeth Seton. She comes with vast experience and a true love for the ministry of Catholic education,” Connelly said. “I am confident that with her leadership Seton will continue ascending the path where excellence in education is the norm, service and leadership are the hallmarks and growth in true Christian womanhood is the achievable end.” She said as a Sister of Charity she is thrilled and honored to be Seton’s new president. “My background in education and my commitment to the Sisters of Charity will empower me with the help of many to lead Seton into the next exciting phase in our history,” she said. She said the school has enjoyed an increase in enrollment and a major facility renovation, making Seton the choice school for many young women on the west side of Cincinnati. This fall’s freshmen class of 178 students is one of the largest the school has welcomed recently. “Seton not only provides a quality Catholic education, but allows students to grow in their own lives and in service to others,” Cruise said. “I am looking forward to working with the incredible faculty and staff. Their passion for education and for developing well-rounded students is something that I support and admire.” She said she also looks forward to meeting the many alumnae, parents and friends of Seton, as well as working with Elder High School, the neighborhood parishes and community organizations like Price Hill Will to share in the ministry of education. “The more stories I hear, the more energetic I am,” she said.

Sayler Park band plays host to Tom Brokaw By Heidi Fallon hfallon@communitypress.c om A video of their “There is a Road Route 50� took a Sayler Park band a lot farther than they imagined.

Mike Oberst, who plays banjo and fiddle for the string band, said it was a fluke that Brokaw’s staff found the video and contacted him. “We had heard about the show from a friend and sent e-mails, which, we found out, they never got,� Oberst said while sitting in the Sayler Park home where he grew up. Band member Jason Soudrette lives several doors down from Oberst and the third member, Sean Geil, lives in Cheviot. The three men combined their love of old-time music two years ago, after each had been with other bands. They play at the Crow’s Nest in Price Hill, Northside Tavern and Southgate House regularly. They also perform a bit closer to home at the Parkland in Sayler Park. Brokaw and his crew lugged massive amounts of equipment to Oberst’s backyard to film two days worth of interviews and a hastily arranged concert in June. About 100 people crowded onto Oberst’s lawn for that concert. Geil said all three were moved by the crowd of friends and family who have supported The Tillers since they began playing together. Along with joining that crowd of appreciative fans, Brokaw spent time talking with the trio on the back

Delhi Township Blood drive honors fallen firefighter The Delhi Township fire station at 697 Neeb Road will serve as the location for the second annual Brian Schira Memorial Blood Drive sponsored by the Delhi Civic Association from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.. Saturday,

Aug. 8. Giving the gift of life is not only a fitting tribute to Delhi and Colerain township Firefighter Schira, who lost his life in the line of duty, but also an excellent opportunity to make a difference

in the lives of others. You must be at least 17 years old, in good health weigh at least 110 pounds and bring identification to donate blood. It is recommended that donors eat a good meal and drink plenty

of water or non-caffeinated fluids within four hours before donating. There are also several benefits of being a blood donor. Each donor is given a miniphysical examination including a check of the

donor’s heart rate, blood pressure, pulse, iron levels and temperature. A nonfasting, total serum cholesterol level screening test is also performed. Donating blood is safe and easy. The entire dona-

tion process, including registration, examinations, blood draw, and a snack of juice and cookies is simple, efficient and lasts about 45 minutes.

St. Dominic gym sees big improvements By Heidi Fallon

It will be a whole new game for St. Dominic School students when they return

to gym class this year. Thanks to the St. Dominic Athletic Association and parish, the second and final phase of a massive improvement project is about finished.


Nathan Dreyer gets ready to glue on a baseboard as part of the new carpet installation in the St. Dominic School gym lobby. The Oak Hills High School graduate and now a Cheviot resident said the carpeting and new gym floor should be completed this week.

Dan Dugan, association president, said the 50-yearplus gym had been on the group’s to-do list for years. The project started last year with a $25,000 investment to replace basketball rims and backboards, a new paint job and protective padding along the gym walls. The parish, he said, paid for a new roof for the gym as well in 2008. This year, $109,000 was earmarked for a new gym floor and bleachers, plus electrical upgrades. Tony Morano, association treasurer and St. Dominic graduate, said the group has worked hard to raise the money. “We watched our budget

Dugan credits association coaches and coordinators for pinching pennies to keep the project on track. Fundraisers included several 1980’s dances, and

the group may have more including a homecoming dance on the new gym floor. “Not much had changed in the gym since I went to school here,� Morano said. “This is a big improvement that will benefit not only the school but the St. Dominic community.�

Shiloh church helps students prepare for school with fest By Heidi Fallon

Shiloh United Methodist Church again will be giving area youngsters a boost back to school with its sixth annual Shilohfest. It will be from 4-7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 8, at the church, Anderson Ferry and Foley roads. Mari Ann Chell, senior and women’s ministries director, said the congregation is planning for at least the 500 who attended last year. “Our goal has always been to help the community,” she said, “but this may be more critical due to the economy this year.” The afternoon includes games, food, music and giving out the basic back-toschool kits for children from

kindergarten to eighthgrade. Sara Jones, church secretary and one of the main organizers of the event, said adults also will be getting freebies. She’s in the midst of sorting books donated by the congregation that will be handed out to adults attending the festival with their children. “We’ve always had books for kids, but this year we’re expanding it to adults,” she said. “What’s great about our festival is that everything is free and everyone is welcome.” If there are more school supply kits than children, Jones said the supplies will be donated to other churches and area agencies helping children.

Patriotic siblings Dorothy and Jim Garrahan pose in their respective Army and Navy uniforms in 1946.



At 22, Dorothy Garrahan enlisted in the Army nurse corps in 1944 for one simple reason. “It was the thing to do,” she said with a smile. Clutching her diploma from the University of Portland, she left for basic training and ultimately the Philippines. Along with a deep love for her country, she also encountered the love of her life, Robert Lenhardt, an Army captain she met in the Philippines and married in 1946. She was stationed at what had been designed as a medical complex to treat anticipated casualties of war. “With the bombings in Japan,” she said, “the war was all but over after we arrived.” Lenhardt spent 15 months with the nurse corps and while they thankfully weren’t seeing wounded soldiers, there was an onslaught of prisoners of war.

“American GI’s were sent to other hospital facilities and we treated POWs, mostly those who had been forced to work in mines in Japan,” she said. “None of them spoke English, which made it difficult, they were malnourished and TB was rampant. We probably had eight to 10 die a week.” Working 12-hour shifts, nurses did what they could, she said. After her stint in the Philippines, Lenhardt returned to her Montana home to await both her husband’s return and the birth of their daughter, Joan. The couple moved to Westwood where she worked at Holmes Hospital and he began a new nonmilitary career with his brother-in-law’s plumbing business. They had two more children, sons Bob, who lives what she said is a stone’s throw from her in Delhi Township, and Charles, a Cincinnati firefighter who lives in Sayler Park.

Bookworks 10, CBAS’s 10th annual exhibit of traditional and contemporary handmade books, is on display in the Atrium of the Main Library through Sunday, Sept. 6. This year’s exhibit showcases more than 15 handmade books crafted by local artists like Margaret Rhein of Westwood. Each piece demonstrates the variety of techniques and approaches used in traditional and contemporary bookmaking. In conjunction with the Bookworks 10 exhibit, selections from the Main Library’s own collection of artists’ books is also on display. The Keith Kuhn Memorial Artists’ Book Exhibit – More Than Words: The Book as Art features more than 60 books made by regionally and nationally recognized artists. Many of the books are hand-made, one-of-a-kind objects that represent a wide range of forms. The exhibit - on view through Monday, Sept. 7 in the Main Library’s Cincinnati Room – was named in honor of former Library Services Director Keith Kuhn who died in 2008. Expanding the Library’s extensive collection of one-of-a-kind artists’ books was one of Kuhn’s passionate pursuits. Under his direction the unique collection grew in size and also in scope.

Sierra Creager (with star), known to her teammates as Pinup Pussycat, plays the role of the jammer for the Black-N-Bluegrass Rollergirls in a bout against the Cincinnati Rollergirls at The Cincinnati Gardens last season.

Rollergirls live many lives

Jenni Schultz recently sprinted through the woods of her Price Hill neighborhood trying to track down her dog, Gracie, who escaped from her leash. After tracking Gracie down, Schultz left her at home, strapped on her roller stakes and chased her Black-N-Bluegrass Roller Derby teammates through the rink at the Florence Fundome. To her teammates, Schultz is better known as Florence Nite-NHell, a tough 5-foot-9 38-year-old blocker that has battled through numerous knee injuries. Outside of the Fundome, she is a nurse and a mother that dons combat boots and a unique red and blue hairdo. “Florence balances out Jenni,” said Schultz of her alter ego. “I can dress in my scrubs and I love time with my patients, but I also absolutely love ‘bout day’ (games) when I can do my makeup like David Bowie, wear spankies and fishnets and knock the crap out of people.” Her daughter, Ginger, doesn’t necessary share the love of the sport. “All you guys do is skate around in a circle,” Ginger told her mom one day at roller derby practice.



Seton hires new athletic director By Mark Chalifoux

“Ah, no, it is a little bit more than that,” Florence Nite-N-Hell said. To the unknowing fan, roller derby appears to be a bunch of women on roller skates skating in a circle and randomly ramming into each other. To roller girls and others that follow the sport, roller derby can be a complicated game that requires multiple days worth of practice each week. However, while some are attracted to the sport because of the strategy, most are there to see the collisions. The collisions don’t just bring in the fans, but also fellow rollergirls. Meet Kallie Jo of Erlanger, a 21-year-old bill collector, who describes herself as somewhat of a “pushover” in her day-to-day life. At night, Jo, known in the roller derby circuit as Scary Garcia, describes herself as “fearless.” “I call people at home and at work to try to collect on accounts that they defaulted on and I pretty much get yelled at and hung up on all day,” Jo said of her day job. “The good thing about derby, especially when I have a real frustrating day, is that it is nice to go out and hit people without getting in trouble for it.” There are many more out there

like Schultz and Jo, like Joyce Leonard, who is 39-year-old mother of two who is trying to finish nursing school while working as cocktail waitress at McCormick & Schmick’s in downtown Cincinnati. Her customers know her as Joyce, but her teammates and coworkers know her as Tiki Von Sexron. Leonard grew up watching roller derby as a child in San Diego, Calif., when she fell in love with the sport and dreamed to play it one day. “Participating in roller derby to me is like a little mini pop star dream. You know when you are a little kid and think, ‘I want to do this when I grow up and I would love to that when I grow up,’ and then life actually gets in the way,’” Leonard said. “This is my little piece of reclaiming that little bit of childhood.” There are many more various types of rollergirls who make up the Black-N-Bluegrass squad. To see these women of all walks of life take down the opposition, catch a home bout at the Fundome, 7864 Commerce Drive, Florence. This week, July 25, they will take on the Lafayette Brawlin Dolls at 7 p.m. For more information, visit

Seton High School has found a replacement for former athletic director Mary Ritter and the Saints turned to the University of Cincinnati in the process. Seton hired Janie Borcherding Shaffer as the new athletic director. Shaffer was the assistant athletic director for NCAA compliance at the University of Cincinnati. “Seton has a long-standing tradition of excellence in athletics. Janie’s skills in athletic administration and her development background will take our program to the next level. I look forward to working with her as we continue to improve and increase the offerings for our student-athletes,” said Seton’s incoming president, Sister Patricia Cruise. According to a press release announcing the hiring, Shaffer’s duties will include overseeing the 12 varsity sports at Seton in addition to cultivating donor relations, annual giving and managing ongoing public relations and mar-

keting duties. At UC, Shaffer was an administrator for all of the women’s programs, served as a revenue generator and was on the athletic department’s executive board. “I am excited about my new role at Seton and the opportunity to work with student-athletes again,” Shaffer said. “I consider myself fortunate to participate in continued development of an athletic program with such a rich history of excellence. I look forward to ensuring a positive experience for every young woman involved in athletics at Seton.” Shaffer also said she looks forward to working with those around the program. “I look forward to working with parents, alumnae, faculty, staff and people within the local community who support Seton is so many ways,” she said. Shaffer also brings a unique athletic background to the school as she attended Duke University on an athletic scholarship and played on three ACC championship volleyball teams.

Cincy’s top softball teams face off at Rumpke By Mark Chalifoux

Rain hampered the start of the 57th annual Cincinnati Metro Softball Tournament but even that won’t slow what has grown into one of the biggest events of its kind in the nation. “They make it work,” said Jonathan Kissell, Rumpke’s senior communication coordinator. The Met is played mainly at Rumpke Park in Crosby Township, with finals concluding Wednesday, Aug. 12. “With so many teams it takes a lot of coordination to put it together. To make it happen with so many teams involved seems overwhelming but it’s impressive how well a tournament of this size can run.” Kissell said the grounds crew can be found at the park late into the night and that games are played most weeknights until midnight and later if there are weather delays. There are 261 teams in the Met this year, down 10 teams from 2008. Kissell said they were expecting fewer teams due to the economy but was happy with the number of teams. “It’s just a huge event to a lot

of people. Teams prepare all season for this event. To find out who the best of the best is and be declared a city champ. Teams take a lot of pride in it,” he said. The Met is one of the biggest tournaments of its kind in the nation. Only local, league-sanctioned teams were allowed to qualify for entry. Players cannot form teams just to play in the tournament. One key to the tournament’s continued success, Kissell said, is the tradition. “It’s been around so long, a lot of players playing today probably watched their parents and grandparents play in the Metro,” he said. “We play sports in grade school and high school and it’s a chance to relive those days as an adult. Players still take pride in being a champion.” Kissell, who grew up in the area and went to high school at La Salle, said the Met is popular even among spectators. “It’s only $3 for admission and kids under 12 and adults over 65 get in free. You can grab an ear of corn and a burger and watch a bunch of softball games from the sundeck. For two weeks, it’s a great place to be,” he said.

Jackson’s Green Twp. legacy lives on This is last in a series on the history of Green Township. In a later letter, Isaac Jackson told his wife he was doing well and had an indentured child living with him. Poor parents indentured their children to someone who could properly care for them. They stayed with the family and worked until they reached adulthood. He said she was rather pretty, but had too much nose. She had made his life more bearable because she knew how to do many things in this wilderness. In 1815, the war was over and speculation started. In 1818, the boom collapsed when the local branch of the United States Bank called in its loans. Another bank, The Miami Exporting Co., closed its doors and rioting broke out. A depression set in, and courts were deluged with debt collector’s law suits. Isaac Jackson was immersed in the events because he had been elected County Commissioner and served from 1818-1825. He was an appraiser, guardian, and dealt with estates and probate matters. As a commissioner, he fought for and against the building of new roads. Isaac Jackson died on Oct. 20, 1849, and his wife Deborah in 1854. Early Green Township historian Dr. Reese Kendall, in his Pioneer Annals of Green Township recorded Isaac Jackson’s life. He was a Philadelphia pioneer who settled in Green Township 1813. He lived on the Muddy Creek in a large two-story log-hewed house and had a large frame barn. There was a timber lot called Jackson’s Hobby that contained forest and fruit trees. Isaac H. Jackson kept a record of the weather three times each day for the years between 1813 and 1842, and left his journal with his son Sidney. Sidney Jackson was never politically active like his father, he was interested in horticulture. In 1830, Sidney started a nursery and floral business

In 1845, the catalogue listed greenhouse plants, ornamental trees and shrubs, roses, and herbaceous plants. The general agent was Ely Campbell Seedman, No 23 Lower Market St. More than likely this location was somewhere along the Cincinnati Whitewater Canal which opened in 1843, and operated between Indiana and Cincinnati. In 1852, he was offering a discount for large orders. He was closing his canal location because the canal had become unreliable. He moved his green houses and nursery back to the original location on Sidney Road. Sidney Jackson married Elizabeth Hutchinson of Harrison and they had five children, but only two lived to adulthood. His daughter Julia married Dwight Herrick in 1874, and he continued the nursery until his retirement around 1920. A special thank you to Paul Ruffling, president of the Green Township Historical Society who provided information for these articles.

I would like to thank all involved from the Community Press for making the Timothy Roos picture dedication story front page news.

Driehaus votes against taxpayers My congressman, Steve Driehaus, threw away an opportunity to do good and thwart evil. A cartoonist could draw him with his right hand reaching out to pro-life westside Catholic Democrats while keeping his left hand extended to proaborts Assistant Majority Leader U.S. Rep. Steny Hoyer and U.S. Rep. Barney Frank who came to Cincinnati last year to campaign for him. U.S. Rep. Mike Pence (R–Ind.) proposed an amendment to the Labor Health and Human Services appropriations act in the full House of Representatives on July 24. The Pence amendment called for ending taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood, the largest recipient of federal funds under Title X. Planned Parenthood received $350 million in 2008. The amendment failed 183 to 244. Driehaus’ nay vote supports extorting our tax dollars for a business that performs the most abortions on babies in the womb in the country, targets black babies, is being investigated for violating state sexual assault and child abuse reporting laws in Alabama, California, Indiana, Ohio and Tennessee, and encourages teenage sexual promiscuity on its Teen Talk Web site. How can Steve Driehaus campaign as a pro-life Democrat, but then expect us to pay for the “choice” of death? Thomas Jefferson

said, “To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves is sinful and tyranJoanne nical.” Driehaus also Kemmerer voted for the ForCommunity eign Relations Press guest Reauthorization Act, HR 2410, on columnist June 10, which established a global women’s issues office to promote abortion overseas as a principle of U.S. foreign policy. He did join some Democrat colleagues telling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that abortion should not be included in a government health care bill. That cannot work, however, unless there is explicit language excluding coverage for abortions. Voting to continue funding Planned Parenthood because it provides health care services for poor women is an old canard. American taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood frees up money for promoting and providing abortions which otherwise would be needed for operational costs. There are many federally funded clinics providing health services like cancer screenings that promote abstinence, but do not do

abortion. Prominent black leaders attending the 2008 NAACP convention in Cincinnati held a press conference which I attended. They included Alveda King, a niece of the Rev. Martin Luther King, who opposed abortion. Last year, UCLA pro-life students hired actors to call Planned Parenthood offices posing as donors. Outside the convention center, the crowd listened to the recording of the “donor” asking if his money could be directed to aborting black babies, and Planned Parenthood agreed! Minority women make up about 26 percent of the female population (age 15-44) in the United States, but they undergo approximately 36 percent of abortions performed in this country. Promoting teenage sex provides Planned Parenthood with customers who have sexually transmitted diseases because they fell for Planned Parenthood’s lie that using porous condoms equals safe sex. Glamorizing teen sex results in pregnancies which lead to profitable abortions. Planned Parenthood needs a growing customer base to pay its executive director’s $300,000-plus salary. Steve Driehaus voted against life, 1st District taxpayers, and our teenagers’ virtue. Joanne Kemmerer, formerly of Mount Airy, was a 2000 Republican candidate for Ohio state legislature.

Remember those who came before As we have been celebrating Green Township’s 200th anniversary, I’ve been curious if any mention would be made of the people who lived here before our ancestors settled this land. That the first mention of Native Americans I’m aware of would be used in the same sentence with the word exterminated actually didn’t surprise me. Betty Kamuf’s fine article “Green history began in mid-1790s” in the July 15 edition caught my attention with the sentences from Isaac Jackson’s letter to his wife that said, “The Indian problem that was much talked about in New York was not a problem here. He expected they would be run off or exterminated by winter.” The word exterminated means to destroy totally or, basically, genocide. Genocide is the planned termination of a national or racial group. Some countries are brought before the World Court today for genocide. I don’t know if this was the official policy of our government, but

Michael H. Haap Community Press guest columnist

through broken treaties and a constant push to move the Indians to the west, it may as well have been. Washington, Jefferson and especially Jackson later, who ignored the Supreme Court, ignored treaties and let the Indians be pushed to

the west. History, both military and American, is one of my interests. The more I read about our country’s systematic destruction of the Native Americans, the more I understand the many failings of our great country, such as slavery and now immigration. One person I know says the solution to the immigration problem is to plant a minefield on the Mexican border. Do we really learn from history?

I don’t think so. One of the reasons our government pressured the Indians was that some of them chose to side with the British during both the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. The Indians did this because of the continual breaking of treaties as we pushed westward into the continent. It became a downward spiral of resistance, treaty, broken treaty and more resistance. Tecumseh, one of the greatest Americans, tried to unite the tribes against the whites. He almost succeeded. Although if he had, I believe he and the tribes would have eventually been defeated or pushed further west. A major problem the Indians had was a lack of replacements for their wounded and killed warriors. The whites just kept coming. So as we celebrate our 200th, let’s not forget whose graves we stand on – Miami, Shawnee, Erie and other tribes. Michael H. Haap is a resident of Green Township.

Pet rescue hopes to go on the road By Jennie Key

A woman who has spent years rescuing beagles is helping a fellow local animal rescuer set up a vehicle to take rescue on the road. Karen Schmidt has a pack of beagles that all came from shelters and were in danger of being killed because they had overstayed the limit and were, for some reason or another, unadoptable. “Beagles are like potato chips,” she said. “No one can have just one.” She has acted as a foster home for beagles, and has lost count of the number that have passed through her doors on the way to new homes. But over the 27 years since her first beagle, A number of dogs have found a permanent home at Schmidt’s house. They are all happy in her version of dog heaven: a fenced acre of land, treats, and lots of attention, good food, shelter and no threats on their doggie horizons. Schmidt can’t say no to a beagle sob story and once went home with three dogs because she couldn’t bear to leave one behind at the shelter. She is active with AdoptA-Dog Inc., a volunteer, nonprofit organization dedicated to rescue, adoption and education. Schmidt and a colleague, Sherry Drescher, are in the midst of a plan to convert a minibus into a mobile rescue vehicle. Drescher says when it’s rehabbed, the bus will ideally serve a number of functions. She sees it as a resource for local animal rescue groups in the area. The animobile will be outfitted with cages, so her group and other groups could use the vehicle to move animals from shelters that kill animals that are not adopted to other shelters


Karen Schmidt loves her Beagles, and they are always happy to see her. She has been a foster home for Beagles until they can be adopted but sometimes one finds a permanent home with her. that do not. She says the van could also be used by groups for mobile adoption events, and as a first-response vehicle in the case of a disaster. Drescher has seen the need for disaster intervention for animals first-hand. She was in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina and saw the devastation on the animal population there. The women are passionate about saving animals. Drescher has put her money where her passion is: she day-traded to buy the bus and plans to rehab it with her own money as well. When complete, the bus will have a custom graphic exterior and will contain secure cages, a seating area for potential animal adoptees to fill out paperwork, a plasma TV, special antiseptic flooring, and a generator in case the shuttle bus travels to an area without power. Drescher is looking into solar panels for the roof, and says the diesel fuel will help the animobile be a green machine.

Considering the surprises of life such unexpected events, no matter how coincidentally bizarre, are just “blind fate.â€? We might even feel childish or superstitious to see them as anything more – though we sense them as otherwise. Causality is inadequate to explain such phenomena. But we’re not being weird in sensing there may be more to it. In the well-respected field of Jungian psychology, however, such uncaused but amazingly meaningful and spontaneous occurrences are expressed by another term – synchronicity. Jung called synchronicity “a non-causal but meaningful relationship between physical and psychic events ‌ a special instance of acausal orderedness.â€? Dr. David Richo says, “What makes chance into synchronicity is the consciousness in us of the vaster design that is unfolding. Chance happens to us; synchronicity happens in us.â€? Those more spiritually oriented may speak of it as grace. From the vantage

point of hindsight we look back in our lives and believe we see the providence of God working subtly. Though our actions were completely free and spontaneous, and there was no coercion or auto-suggestion, these few unexplainable events happened and worked to our benefit. It’s been said, “A coincidence is a minor miracle in which God wishes to remain anonymous.� The late psychiatrist M. Scott Peck wrote, “I’ve become more and more impressed by the frequency of statistically highly improbable events. In their improbability, I gradually began to see the fingerprints of God. On the basis of such events in my own life and in the lives of my patients. “I know that grace is real. ...We who are properly skeptical and scientific-

minded may be inclined to dismiss this force since we can’t touch it and have no decent way to measure it. Yet it exists. It is real.� Another professional, psycho-therapist Robert A. Johnson, refers to grace as “slender threads� touching our lives: “The possibility of the slender threads operating at all times is so staggering that most of us can’t bear it. ...It is probably true that we live in a universe with more meaning in it than we can comprehend or even tolerate. “Life is not meaningless; it is overflowing with meaning, pattern and connections.� Even in times of trouble or turmoil, hope says surprises can happen.

Have you ever stopped spontaneously at a gas station, talked with a stranger at the next pump, and left with a great job offer? Did the university you chose for educational purposes introduce you to your spouse? Did you lose track of the wisest schoolteacher you ever had, wish you could have her advice now, and a week later in a crowded mall see her again? Have you ever unexpectedly met a physician who soon proved vital for your health? Many occurrences in our lives seem accidental or completely by chance. And the odds are that’s exactly what they are. But there are a few others that seem so much more to us in their impact and personal meaning. Yet the causes are undetectable. What can we call such occurrences? One melodious word is serendipity. A serendipity is an unexpected happy occurrence, or, as Webster defines it, “making desirable discoveries by accident.� Others might say that all

Green Twp. bicentennial program explores the past By Kurt Backscheider

Final summer concert

As Green Township continues to celebrate its bicentennial this year, residents may want to mark their calendars for a few bicentennial events coming up in August. Folks can learn about interesting township pioneers through a program being presented by Paul Ruffing of the Green Township Historical Association at both the Green Township Branch Library and Monfort Heights Branch Library. The free program, “Some Famous and Infamous Green Township Characters from the Past,” is being offered at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 11, at the Green Township Branch, 6525 Bridgetown Road; and at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 18, at the Monfort Heights Branch, 3825 West Fork Road. Ruffing said it’s a look back at some of the people who lived in the township, or had connections to the township, during the 1800s. “Some of them were famous, and some of them were famous for not being

The final installation of Green Township’s Bicentennial Summer Concert Series also takes place this month. The free concert gets started at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 15, at Kuliga Park, 6717 Bridgetown Road. A double-header, the concert features performances by the Rusty Griswolds and the Sullivan Janszen Band. Picnic baskets are welcome, but no alcohol may be brought into the park. Food and beer will be sold by local organizations. Parking is available at Oak Hills High School, J.F. Dulles Elementary and Our Lady of Visitation, with free shuttle service provided. Faith Fellowship Church will also allow parking, but with no shuttle service. Kuliga Park is permit only parking. A cornhole tournament is scheduled to take place prior to the concert. Call the concert hotline at 598-3089 for more information. For details about the cornhole tournament, call the township administration office at 574-4848. very good,” he said. “It’s just a series of short vignettes about some of the people who made an impact here.” For instance, he said he’ll tell the rags-to-riches story of James Robb, for whom Robb Avenue in Cheviot is named. And he will talk about the men who formed the Green Township Anti-Thieving Association, which was a vigilante group who went after thieves who stole animals from local farmers. Ruffing said the program also covers Willie Haas, a

16-year-old boy who committed a heinous crime in 1896 on a farm near present-day Sidney Road; and Alexander Long, who was a township teacher who became a U.S. Congressman and was nearly thrown out of Congress for opposing the Civil War. Ruffing said an 1837 outrage in Cheviot is also discussed, as are Jacob Johnson’s skunk scheme, Charles Reemelin’s life as a renaissance man and Michael Werk’s wine-making exploits. “Most people have never

heard of these early pioneers,” Ruffing said. Sarah Connatser, branch manager of the Green Township Branch Library,

said the program is the second in a three-part bicentennial series being hosted by the libraries. She said both branches

will host the third program focusing on the township’s history near the end of September.

Covedale resident takes top museum job By Katie Hull

After being a part of the Cincinnati History Museum at Cincinnati Museum Cen-

ter for 12 years, Covedale resident Vanessa Van Zant got a job she knew she

always wanted. Van Zant, originally from Berea, Ky., recently was

named director of the museum. She started in her quest after attending Xavier University for two years and then transferring to Northern Kentucky University. “I was looking for an anthropology and archeology program,” said Van Zant. After graduating from NKU with a bachelor’s degree in anthropology and a minor in history, Van Zant studied archeology and anthropology through the Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP) program at University of Cincinnati. While at UC she volunteered in the archeology lab at the Cincinnati Museum Center. “I loved it and I just thought, this is where I want to work,” she said. “That just stuck and that was my goal.” Van Zant stated parttime as the museum center’s children’s program presenter, and late became manager of youth programs, where she helped develop programs for Boy Scouts, summer camps and overnights, she said. “She really grew the scout program and made them very successful,” said director of public education, Dennis Murphy, who supervised Van Zant for more than three years. Van Zant was then promoted to the manager of Special Projects and Traveling Exhibits, and managed the exhibits while they were in Cincinnati. “She brought a lot of stability to that division,” said Murphy. Van Zant held this position until early June, when she was offered the job as director of history museum. Murphy said he was sad to lose her but could not have been happier for her. “She’s very personable, very professional and very dedicated,” he said.


Vanessa Van Zant, newly selected director of Cincinnati History Museum at Cincinnati Museum Center, lives in Covedale with her husband, David Schumann and her two young daughters, Katherine and Gwendolyn Schumann. Van Zant was thrilled with the opportunity and did not hesitate to accept, she said. “If you asked me when I was 5 what I wanted to do, it was this,” she said. “I’ve just kind of always known.” With her new job, Van Zant said she feels strongly about strengthening community development and wants to bring more families to experience what the museum has to offer. “When you come into the history museum there are so many wonderful fun things to see,” said Van Zant. Her two children, Katherine Schumann, 8, and Gwendolyn Schumann, 5, are active in the summer camps and spend just as much time at the museum as their mother “They are growing up here and they love it,” said Van Zant.

Wesley’s Mayors for Meals receives award Wesley Community Services have been awarded a $500 Bronze Award grant from the Meals-On-Wheels Association of America in recognition of the success of their 2009 “Mayors for Meals” campaign. “Our main focus for this campaign was to raise awareness of the importance of proper nutrition and the number of Greater Cincinnati seniors and individuals with disabilities in need,” said Stephen Smookler, executive director. Five local elected officials delivered meals throughout Cincinnati during the week of March 16 and prepared proclamations proclaiming Mayor’s-For-Meals Week 2009 for Wesley Community Services. Participants included: Vice Mayor David Crowley, Cincinnati; Mayor Charles Johnson, Forest Park; David Pepper, Hamilton County Commission; William J. Seitz III, Ohio State senator; and Vice Mayor Curtis Walden, St.

Bernard. Wesley Community Services has as its mission to provide services to seniors and individuals with disabilities so that they may remain in their homes for as long as possible.

GUMP-HOLT Funeral Home A Helping Hand... As a Funeral Director, I have as many self-doubts about the value of my contribution to society as anyone. How can one help this in an age when every tradition, every human motive, every manner of doing anything seems constantly under ďŹ re? I can say this, however. Every day I deal with people whose defenses are down, and the ritual of the Funeral Service does seem to serve their vital needs. When one of them clasps my hand, I can be sure that there is no pretense here. I have made some small contribution in alleviating the bereavement of another human being...

Bed & Breakfast Feature of the Week

RAVENWOOD CASTLE: A MOST UNUSUAL GETAWAY Visit a “medieval castle” on a high hilltop on 115 secluded and forested acres of the most beautiful area of Southeast Ohiothe Hocking Hills! Owners Sue & Jim Maxwell are creating the most unusual guest experience of stepping back 800 years in a reconstruction of a “12th century Norman castle.” The Maxwells have traveled throughout England & Scotland & have always loved castles & the medieval era. Although the building is new, the couple has been collecting architectural antiques for several years. Each guest room or suite has a stained glass window, usually in the bedroom, a Victorian fireplace mantel with a gas log unit, antique light fixtures and some have beautiful old doors. The wood mouldings around the door & windows & the 5 stairways are inspired by centuries old motifs from Great Britain’s stately homes & castles. Most rooms also have a French door with a balcony, private deck overlooking the forest. There are also “medieval” themed cottages with fireplaces and whirlpools. Ravenwood has

NEW YORK its own food service for guests, so they can spend their entire visit immersed in solitude if they wish, surrounded by tall trees, huge rocks, the castle‘s own hiking trails and plenty of peace and quiet. Or guests can drive the few miles to outside attractions & other dramatic scenery in the Hocking Hills. Ravenwood offers popular “murder mystery” weekends and also plans “medieval dinners”, getaway workshops, and other special events. Facilities are also perfect for small weddings and other festive occasions. The building has no steps into the 1st floor level - a “drawbridge” leads from the driveway to the massive front door and the first floor guest rms. Nearby are caves, waterfalls, lots of hiking trails, a scenic railway, arts & crafts studios & shop, antique malls and much more. There are often midweek discounts and a special “Royal Family” Adventure Package in the summer.
