Restoration underway at St. Teresa By Kurt Backscheider

WEST PRICE HILL — St. Teresa of Avila Church is getting beautified for an upcoming momentous occasion at the parish. The Catholic parish will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2016, and the church is undergoing a restoration project in advance of the parish’s historic birthday. “The girl needed a good cleaning,” said Bill Thoman, St. Teresa’s plant manager. While the parish has served the neighborhood for nearly a century, he said the church itself only dates back to 1963. But, over the course of 50 years, a lot of dirt can build up. “The church was really dirty,” Thoman said. “A lot of that has to do with heating systems, burning candles and incense. Since 1963, when the church was finished, there have been things collecting called dirt and dust.” He said the first phase of the restoration project was completed last year – the cleaning and restoring of the church’s bells. The second phase of the project began earlier this summer. Thoman said the work consisted of cleaning the limestone pillars and walls inside the church, cleaning the tile dome

EAST PRICE HILL — Carol Bain is not happy with the new trash carts the city is using for its waste collection program. The East Price Hill resident lives alone and said the new black trash receptacle the city has issued for residents to use is too large and cumbersome for her. Bain’s front yard is a hill and she has no driveway, making it difficult for her to wheel the cart back and forth from her home to the curb. “Even though it has wheels, to me it’s a hindrance,” she said. “It’s a real burden.” Climbing her steep front hill is not easy in good weather, and she said she can’t imagine attempting to make it up and down the hill pushing a trash can through wet or snowy grass. “This can doesn’t work for me,” she said. “In fact, it’s a detriment.” She said she’s frustrated the city has switched to using a new trash cart and she wonders if any exceptions can be made in situations like hers. She’s contacted the city to express her concerns, but said she’s had no luck in getting her issue resolved. “From the looks of it the city just did this on a general basis,” she said. “It doesn’t make sense for me to use this trash cart. I

said. Three of the new stained glass windows will feature angels and the other three will contain the images of saints. Students at St. Teresa School chose which three American saints should be represented in the new windows, and they chose St. Kateri Tekakwitha, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and St.

Juan Diego. “We want the students to be a part of the church, and it was a nice way for them to be connected,” Thoman said. The intent behind the restoration project is to beautify the church while maintaining its

a beautiful history and such great character,” he said. “In restoring her we’re given a great sense of her foundation and her spirit. She looks beautiful.” As the second phase of work wraps up, Thoman said the third phase is beginning. That phase includes cleaning the woodwork and brushing a fresh coat of paint on the ceiling, as well as building a new confessional. Once the interior has been completed, he said cleaning and repair of the church exterior will begin. Bidwell said the interior work should be finished by September and the exterior project is planned to be completed in summer 2015. “Our church is so beautiful and hopefully the continuing process of our efforts in restoring her will only enhance the beauty,” he said. The cost of all the restorations is about $400,000, he said. Parishioners have contributed

think the city could save some money by taking mine back.” Larry Whitaker, assistant to Cincinnati’s director of public services, said the city distributed new trash carts as a way to protect workers from injury and increase efficiency. City residents will have to begin placing their trash in the new carts this October, if they aren’t already. Whitaker said the carts have a metal lift bar on them which allows for semi-automated trash collection. Instead of workers lifting heavy garbage bins, a mechanical arm on the garbage truck will flip the cart and dump waste into the truck. “One big concern

we’ve had over the years is employee safety,” Whitaker said. The semi-automated system will reduce the risk of injury to workers, which will also save the city money in the long run by decreasing the number of workers’ compensation claims, he said. The city distributed medium sized 65-gallon trash carts to residents as a default because it’s a good size cart for most people, he said. “Every household is going to be different,” he said. “We tried to come up with a solution that would work for the majority of residents, but we understand there are always going to be some exceptions.” Whitaker said Bain can contact the public services department and request a smaller 35gallon cart. He said the city is willing to work with her to help her, and if necessary the city could also send someone to her house to move the trash cart for her. “We obviously can’t do that for everyone, but in certain circumstances they can work with residents to provide that service,” Whitaker said. Bain said she knows she can request a smaller trash bin, but she’s not certain she could use that either. She said she feels the city disregarded her and she wanted to share her concerns because she’s sure there are other residents who also don’t like the new bins. “I know other people besides me are disillusioned with it,” she said.

Astronomical society program examines meteors

On any clear night a

handful of “shooting stars” can be seen streaking across the sky. Long ago, people thought the stars were actually falling from the sky, but astronomers now know the brief streaks are really meteors – tiny bits of solar system debris. The Cincinnati Astronomical Society will take a closer look at meteors during its upcoming Rocks From Space program. The hands-on presentation is part of the society’s monthly CAS Second Saturday program. The evening will include a talk from Kendall

Hauer, director of the Limper Museum at Miami University. Stargazing through the society’s large telescopes will also take place, weather permitting. The program begins at 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 10, at the Cincinnati Astronomical Society, 5274 Zion Road, Cleves. No reservations are required. Admission is free, but donations are welcomed.

Justice center opened Aug. 1 By Jennie Key

COLERAIN TWP. The township’s Family Justice Center nowgives domestic violence victims a place to turn for assistance. The center, which opened Aug. 1, is the region’s first inclusive facility for victims of violence that will provide help with housing, police protection, legal aid, counseling and other forms of support under one roof. “It’s all right here,” said Colerain Police Sgt. Jennifer Sharp, one of the organizers of the program. “We don’t have to

send people all over the place. We can walk them across the room to talk to the people who provide the services they need.” The center has cubicles set up for people to talk with representatives from agencies that can help with advice and resources. The justice center is handing out business cards in English and Spanish, hoping to broaden the audience that can be reached. Referrals are not necessary and people can come to the resource center other days for information. The program is provided at minimal cost; all the agencies handle their own

paperwork and provide services. The township police department simply set up an area in its community resource center and provides a gateway for people to get to the services they need. Lt. Angela Meyer said the justice center had its first visitor within an hour of the doors opening. A woman stopped in and talked with the representative from Women Helping Women. “We were able to sit down with her and talk about the other services we offer,” Meyer said. “You do all the work to get something like this up and running, and it’s really ex-

citing when you see it’s going to be used.” Sharp says there are a lot of people who can use this assistance; last year, 2,512 domestic violence cases were filed in Hamilton County alone – 2,193 misdemeanors and 319 felonies, according to the Hamilton County Clerk of Courts. The justice center is in the Colerain Township Community Resource Center at 7560 Colerain Ave., but it’s available to people across the region, Sharp said. Colerain police officers are referring people to the center, and Sharp says officers from departments in other

communities will make referrals as well. Cards for the justice center have been distributed to a number of surrounding police departments. Cheviot Police Chief Joseph Lally said his officers will carry information about the center and provide it to victims of violence when they respond to calls involving domestic abuse. “In the past, our involvement as police officers has been, and will continue to be, concentrated on the prosecution of crimes that have occurred,” he said. “The focus of this effort is relative to victims

of domestic violence having just one place to go to get all the assistance they need outside of criminal prosecution.” Sometimes victims of abuse don’t receive all the support and counseling they need because they don’t have the time or ability to visit four or five different service agencies, Lally said. The phone number for the Colerain Township Justice Center is 513-9398460.

Teacher has summer class

Sarah Rolfes with the book where here photo appears.PROVIDED

Seton soph has photo in book Sarah Rolfes, who will be a sophomore next year at Seton High School, has a winning photograph of hers included in a recently published book, Words 2013. Her photograph, “Barge on the Ohio,” won the Second Place Photography Award in 2012 Good River Celebration Contest Sponsored by Thomas More College. The book of arts and literature is a compilation of all of the winning entries. In addition to having her work included in the book, Rolfes also received $200.

Nationally board certified teacher Sherry MiddendorfFuller, from C.O. Harrison Elementary School, traveled to New Mexico as part of the Gilder-Lehrman Institute of American History teacher seminar to study “American Indians and the American Southwest” with nationally known scholar Elliott West. She was one of 30 educators from across many grade levels, subject areas and geographic regions selected to attend the week-long seminar on the campus of the Institute of American Indian Arts located in Santa Fe. The selection committee looked for applicants who “demonstrate a strong interest in American history, a commitment to growth and progress in the profession, and an ability to translate new knowledge and materials into effective classroom teaching.” She also is traveling to Montana to take part in a National Endowment for the Humanities Landmark Workshop. “I look at these learning opportunities as a way for me to deepen my understanding of American history and make it come alive for my students,” she said. Fuller, who is an Oak Hills graduate and resident, has participated in three other NEH sponsored workshops. This year she will join 30 other educators from across the country to study: The Richest Hills – Mining in the Far West, 1860-1920. During the 5 1⁄2 days,

Mount’s soccer team to play with top teams in Spain A few years ago, Rudy Argueta, the College of Mount St. Joseph’s men’s head soccer coach, realized many of his players had not had the opportunity to travel outside the United States to see some of the best soccer in the world or experience the diversity of an international culture. He set a goal: raise the funds, take the trip and teach his players to have a better understanding of how others live in the world. After two years and multiple fundraisers, the team finally raised enough money. This month, Argueta and another coach are taking 16 players to Madrid and Barcelona, Spain, where they will have the opportunity to train and play with some of the youth teams from Real Madrid, Barcelona, Athletico Madrid, Valencia, and Sevilla. In addition, they will also be running a soccer clinic for an orphanage. “This trip isn’t so much about soccer as it is seeing different lifestyles and experiencing diversity,” said Argueta, a native of Guatemala who now lives in Amelia. “These guys play the same teams every year but I want them to have an experience that will open their minds, hearts and see everything that’s out there.” Argueta has arranged for the Mount players to train, tour Real Madrid (Santiago Bernabeu) and Barcelona (Camp Nou) stadiums, as well as their respective locker rooms and award rooms. They’ll also be able to take pictures with one of the most significant awards in the soccer world, the Champions League

Trophy. The players, who log many community service hours locally including helping with Special Olympics, will also run a soccer clinic for children at an orphanage during their 11day trip. “We’ve all been blessed to have solid families that have supported us through our college and childhood years,” said Shayne Bateman, a senior player and a 2010 graduate of Oak Hills High School. “We want to give back to these children who don’t have as much and hope they see other people support them.” “When this experience is done, I want them to look back and say they’re better people,” said Argueta. “I want them not to take anything for granted and to take these experiences back to the campus, Schueler Field and with them the rest of their lives.”

teachers will travel to four major mining sites in Montana’s Southwest region. In route to each destination, historical scholars from across the country will join the group to discuss the historic significance of each mining town. Educators will see and experience first-hand what life was like and what remains of these once booming environs. Fuller applied to this particular workshop because “I have never been to this part of the country and the itinerary of

being on the go ... traveling each day to a different locality sounded like an amazing field trip.” She hopes to develop a series of lessons that will not only address mining and its impact on America but also the development of architecture and women’s roles. She was grateful for the letter of support she received from Corey Kessler her principal when she applied for the workshop in late January. “As one of the visual arts

specialists at my school, I am always striving to connect my lessons to a larger cultural picture,” she said. “Given the opportunity to participate in these workshops, visit a great number of historic sites, gain knowledge and resources from the panel of experts will help me illustrate and interpret these significant pieces of frontier history for my students. In Oak Hills we are striving to provide our students with a sense of the global community.”

Mercy’s Flick receives foundation scholarship Mother of Mercy High School junior Alena Flick joined the student body at Johns Hopkins University this summer, thanks to a prestigious scholarship from the Joyce Ivy Foundation. Flick, of Springfield Township, lives on the Johns Hopkins campus and takes two intensive university courses for credit, a writing course and a film course. “Alena is a scholar of unquestionable character, someone who would not only get a lot out of this program but contribute to it in significant ways,” said Greg Bouman, Mother of Mercy English teacher. “She is personable and kind, with a wide range of creative interests.” A non-profit organization, the Joyce Ivy Foundation provides support to “young women who have the academic, intellectual, and leadership potential to attend the nation’s most selective institutions of higher

education,” according to the foundation web site. One means of support is generous scholarships for pre-college summer Flick study at one of 11 Ivy League and similar caliber colleges. Candidates go through a rigorous application process not only with the Foundation but also with the university whose summer program they hope to attend. For Johns Hopkins, Flick had to submit SAT scores, a college-level writing sample, and two recommendation letters. The Foundation required several essays in addition. The Joyce Ivy Foundation evaluates summer scholars applicants for exceptional academic achievement, demonstrated commitment to pursuit of rigorous undergraduate programs, service to community, and extracurric-

ular activities. The program saw record growth in 2013 in the number of applications from throughout the seven Midwestern states it serves. One of just 79 recipients this year, Flick is the only Joyce Ivy Foundation Scholar from a Cincinnati Catholic school. “The 2013 Joyce Ivy Scholars are top of their class academically and leaders in their school and community,” said Erich Bagen, Joyce Ivy Foundation Board member and chairman of the Summer Scholars Selection Committee. “As important, Joyce Ivy Scholars are seeking new experiences and a challenge. Our Scholars demonstrate a clear desire to push boundaries and stretch themselves.” Flick also will be assigned a Joyce Ivy mentor, who will offer advice throughout the next year as she pursues her summer studies and goes through the college admissions process.

Catholic youth come ‘Alive’ at the Mount More than 500 Catholic youth from 11 states were at the College of Mount St. Joseph in July for “Alive in You,” one of five nationwide camps designed to educate and motivate teens and give them an opportunity to meet new people, do community service and learn more about their faith. The youth worked with more than 40 different agencies throughout the Tri-state and did projects including visiting people with severe disabilities, cleanup and painting projects at Catholic schools, gardening, and working in soup kitchens

More than 500 Catholic youth attended the “Alive in You” at College of Mount St. Joseph. Part of the camp was performing community service.PROVIDED

and food pantries. “We helped religious communities, county parks, histori-

cal societies, farms, and even individual home owners,” said Wayne Topp with the Archdiocese of Cincinnati who organized the community service. “It is truly remarkable all the work that was done in those three days.” The students also had a chance to unwind with two bands that traveled to the Mount for the camp. Ayleron is a Catholic band from Lafayette, La. and served as the house band the entire week. Christian rock artist Matt Maher and his band performed one evening as well.

Oak Hills girls set tone headline the experienced group. “There is a lot of maturity and experience there,” the coach said. “Experience is a factor and I’m hoping it will really carry us through.” The Highlanders get their season started at home Aug. 19 against Harrison.

The Gators are coached by Lacey Schaefer and open the season Aug. 24 at Winton Woods. No other information was available before press deadline.

It’s going to be a youth-infused season for the Saints. Coach Beth Sander graduated nine seniors from last season’s team that went 8-16 and is faced with a group seniors-to-be that didn’t see a ton of action in 2012. “We are going to be young and inexperienced but gogetters,” Sander said. The Saints open the season at home Aug. 17 against Turpin.

With senior libero Emily Wagner not expected to see the court until September, Bobcats coach Denise Harvey will rely on her core group of returners from last season to hold the fort down. Senior outside hitter Katie Klusman, middle hitter Lauren Grosheim and setter Lauren Dinkelacker are expected to provide the leadership. Sophomore Carly Schnieder, who started last season, will play a vital role from the outside hitter position. Juniors Olivia Hart and Abby Connor will contribute as well in helping Harvey determine what set the team will run. “We are going to have to spend a little time adjusting to (Wagner’s injury), but the good thing is we have the entire preseason to adjust to that,” the coach said. “… We will either run a 5-1 or 6-2 set, we aren’t sure yet, but we are working on that.” The Bobcats open the season Aug. 22 versus Henry Clay.

Walroth looks to lead young Saints By Tom Skeen

HAMILTON CO. — Strings are pulled tight and fresh tennis balls are ready to be served as the 2013 high school tennis season is upon us. Here is a preview of the Press coverage area:


Things took a turn for the worse for the Mohawks before the season could even get started. Senior Makenzie McFelea – who was coach Ann Lyons’ No. 1 singles player heading into the season – went down with a torn ACL and meniscus. Add that to the fact that the Mohawks graduated three of their top seven from a season ago, and Lyons is working with a young, inexperienced group in 2013. “We had 16 people try out,” the coach said. “Some played junior varsity last year and the rest are new, beginner players so we are just in a rebuilding format.” Senior Alyssa Fulks joins doubles players Nicole Capodaglia and Megan Davish as the Mohawks lone returners from their 6-9 team a season ago. “You just look at the talent and the possibilities and what you know they can do and work with that,” Lyons said of working with an inexperienced group. “… You can always tell See TENNIS, Page A9

Kings Hammer girls reach national stage again By Adam Turer

For the second straight year, Kings Hammer Academy’s girls U16 red team placed second at the 2013 U.S. Youth Soccer National Championships. The squad advanced to the championship match before falling in penalty kicks on Sunday, July 28, at the Overland Park Soccer Complex in Overland Park, Kan. Last year, Kings Hammer lost the National Championship 1-0. This year, Kings Hammer extended the championship match into overtime, before losing on PKs, 2-2 (5-3). The loss stings, but there is definitely comfort in playing at the highest level against the best teams the country has to offer. Following the tournament, Kings Hammer was awarded the Fair Play Award, given to the team that all coaches and administrators voted on as the best overall team at the championships. “Our expectation going into this year after losing last year was to go one better and win it all,” said Kings Hammer coach Jon Pickup. “That being said, to reach a National Championship two years in a row is something special in itself.” In the first match of the championships, Kings Hammer routed Toms River (New Jersey) Elite United FC, 5-1. Four of the goals were scored by Oak Hills High School Highlanders — Sydney Kilgore, Bayley Feist, Brittany Mahoney, and Katie Murray — while the

fifth was notched by Summit Country Day’s Mia Schreibeis. The second match was tighter, Feist and Dixie Height High School’s Lauren Nemeroff scoring late goals to give Kings Hammer a 2-1 victory over Match Fit Colchesters (N.J.). Nemeroff scored the lone Kings Hammer goal in a 1-1 draw with 97 Louisiana Fire Navy. The 2-0-1 mark in pool play was enough to advance Kings Hammer to the National Championship, where they faced Southern California’s DMCV Sharks Elite. “The girls played very well together and jelled very quickly this year as we had quite a lot of turnover at the end of last season,” said Pickup. “That’s what has impressed me the

most this year as the girls really took off where they left off in 2012.” The core of the team has been together for three to four years, with several players growing up with the program since they began playing select soccer at age 7. Captain Payton Atkins (Turpin High School, University of Kentucky commit) has been playing for Kings Hammer since she was 7. While many of the girls compete against one another each fall, team chemistry has not been an issue for Kings Hammer. “Playing as a team is our best attribute. We obviously have great players but we work hard for each other and the team concept is our main focus,” said Pickup. “The players’ dedica-

tion and drive also impresses me. We try to play the game the right way so in regards success our possession of the ball was key.” In the final, Mahoney gave Kings Hammer a 1-0 lead heading into halftime. A goal by DMCV in the 69th minute forced overtime. Nemeroff put Kings Hammer back on top with a goal in overtime, but her score was equalized by DMCV in the 95th minute. DMCV was a perfect 5-5 in penalty kicks to earn the victory. “It was devastating to lose on pens as we had numerous opportunities to win the game in regulation and then again in overtime after leading in both periods,” said Pickup. “We played well enough to win the game so it was hard going all the way to penalties only to lose especially after losing last year as well.” Despite the heartbreaking loss, there were plenty positives to take away from the experience. Nemeroff was named the MVP of the tournament, and she was joined on the Best 11 by Murray. Their individual efforts were recognized, but it was the total team effort that has brought Kings Hammer so much success in recent years. “I would say the team’s consistency at the highest level is what impresses me the most,” said Pickup. “I think what makes playing us so hard is that other teams need to shut down our whole team rather than certain individuals.” The players now prepare for

their high school seasons. Most will be back with Kings Hammer next year, hoping that the third time is the charm. “These girls, with a few new additions, will return as always focused and ready to try and achieve their ultimate goal of becoming National Champions,” said Pickup. “Third time is lucky is what I am hoping for!”



Cops converge for national softball tourney

Maybe the only things left unprotected were the outfield fences. Certainly everything inside was well in hand. Cops from across the country and Canada descended on the River City Sports Complex July 19 to 21 for the 42nd Annual National Police Softball Tournament. With 25 teams - 20 of them competing in the open division and five in the masters division - the fences, however, suffered numerous assaults in the six-homer-limit games. Mariemont officer Chris Warner brought the tournament to Cincinnati for the first time in 2013 after Dayton hosted the event for 40-plus years. The 1987 Norwood High School graduate has been a full-time officer in Mariemont since 1996. He’s been playing softball on traveling allstar teams all along and is glad to have his two passions come together in his hometown. “It’s competitive, but it’s also a lot of fun,” Warner said of the national tournament. “We had a good location. There’s a lot more to do here for the guys who come with their families than in Dayton. It just made sense.” Frank Navarre - a retired Dayton officer who has been tournament director for a quarter century - agreed. “We’d like to have it down here another 40

years,” he said. “It’s a great location, easy to get to, and there’s a lot of value for the players between the Reds, Kings Island, Coney Island, the casinos, the (Newport) Aquarium. “It’s a great event. The departments like to come down and compete, but also represent their city or state and show their style.” Opening ceremonies July 19 featured a tribute to fallen officers from every state represented in the tournament, as well as a police helicopter flyover, a sportsmanship presentation and the induction of Dick Vogel into the national Police Softball Hall of Fame. Vogel’s son Rick - a softball-playing officer himself - presented his dad with the the induction medal.

The elder Vogel played on Elder High School’s 1958 state championship baseball team and won a 1957 national baseball championship with Bentley Post. He’s a member of the Price Hill Old Timer’s Hall of Fame. “I started playing softball because I had gotten married, we had two little kids and my wife was getting tired of taking them out to the baseball diamond on Sunday afternoons,” Vogel said with a chuckle. “I played until I was about 50. “I played on some really good teams. I batted fourth and played first base and had about a .700 average most seasons. I always thought if the team needed a base hit in a crucial situation, I wanted to be the guy at the plate to get it.”

Vogel, now 73 and retired after 35 years in the Cincinnati Police Department, said the softball honor caught him unawares. “This thing is something that totally surprised me,” he said. “The guy called and told me and I couldn’t talk. It’s really a thrill.” Part of the proceeds of the tournament benefited The Shield, a Cincinnati organization that helps families of officers who are killed or injured.

Families looked forward to Western Hills shopping shopping center had not been built without opposition, according to The Cincinnati Post, May 11, 1953. Here we learn that 300 opponents had petitioned the Cincinnati Planning Commission not to change the zoning in their neighborhood from Residence B to Business A. Others in the area took mostly a “wait and see” attitude. The Cincinnati Post interviewed some of them on Aug. 1, 1953, in its weekly forum, What Your Neighbors Are Saying. Joe Hatting and John Streitmarter, of the J & J Supermarket at 5708 Glenway Ave. welcomed the competition. Charles Buxton and John Bernzott, who operated the Shell service station on the southeast corner of Werk Road and Glenway Avenue told The Cincinnati Post they believed the shopping center would bring them more customers. In the end the proponents won. The Western Hills Press reported on July 17, 1953, that the planning commisson had passed an emergency ordinance approving the necessary zoning change for the project to move forward. Opponents’ chief objection had been a projected 25 percent increase in the already 6,200-car per day traffic load on Glenway Avenue. When Brune-Harpenau Builders Inc. agreed to the planning commission’s condition that they dedicate an additional 10-foot strip along the project’s entire Glenway

Avenue frontage to widen the street to 40 feet, opponents were appeased. Developers then made plans to begin grading operations “immediately.” This same article listed some of retailers about to join the Plaza: The Kroger Co., Albers Super Markets, Woolworth’s, Schiff Shoes; Potter’s Shoe Store, Jack Marmer Shoes, SherwinWilliams and rental agent, Robert A. Cline. On July 21, 1953, The Cincinnati Post wrote that rental agent Cline was negotiating with both McAlpin’s and Mabley & Carew to open branch stores in the Plaza. Ten days later, The Western Hills Press announced that the Emil Mueller Construction Co. of Rochester, N.Y., had been hired as the project’s general contractor. Within two weeks, ground was broken and construction began. A year and three months later – showtime! The Western Hills Press announced on Nov. 12, 1954, that the Western Hills Plaza would stage its “official and final grand opening” beginning Nov. 17. This had been postponed several times, The Press explained, to coincide with McAlpin’s opening. This article also stated that Mabley & Carew would open in mid-1955. Karen R.

Promoters are promising “a whole different look.” It calls for a neighborhood pool, playgrounds, hiking trails, an ice cream shop, a pond Jim Grawe stocked with COMMUNITY PRESS fish and acres GUEST COLUMNIST of open space. The idea is not to build another subdivision, but to create a community, a village-like atmosphere with a community gathering area in the center, an atmosphere where residents can walk or bike to schools, shops and neighboring communities – an environment where neighbors can easily meet and get to know one another. While reading the article I

thought to myself, “What a great place to live.” And then I realized, “They’re describing the Covedale Garden District!” Phillips Swim Club is our neighborhood pool, our open space and playgrounds at Rapid Run and Bosken parks, and behind Covedale School. UDF and Greaters ice cream are also nearby. We have a fish pond, with ducks to feed. Covedale Gardens is our centrally located community gathering area, with summer concerts, movie nights and more; and miles of sidewalks connect residents to schools, churches, shops, eateries and neighboring communities. Interestingly, the most radical departure from previous Homearamas is that it intends to attract a variety of people by offering “a myriad of housing choices; single family homes that sell from $380,000 to $1.5 million and town homes that rent from $900 to $1,300 per month.” Similarly, the garden district has a variety of home sizes,

To Flo Mosbaugh in the early 1950s – then a young Westwood mother of three – the announcement in The Western Hills Press on Aug. 14, 1953, that ground had been broken for the Western Hills Plaza Shopping Center at Werk Road and Glenway Avenue couldn’t have been more welcome. Karen R. Today, Arbogast COMMUNITY PRESS nearly 59 years after its COLUMNIST opening, she remembers walking there from her Hanna Avenue home, often accompanied by sons Carl, 8, and Allen, 6, while pushing Dale, 1, in his baby carriage. For the Mosbaughs and thousands of other West Siders like them, the center offered one-stop shopping for everything from groceries to kids’ clothing to banking and hardware. Preliminary surveys projected Western Hills Plaza should have a primary market of 46,000 families with an aggregate income of $270 million annually, according to The Cincinnati Post’s coverage on Nov. 16, 1954. Accountings in The Cincinnati Times-Star and The Cincinnati Post on that same day revealed that there were more than 30 stores then offering their wares, plus free parking for 3,000 cars. Still the 39-acre $5million


styles and price points; including craftsman style bungalows, English inspired cottages, authentic mid-century modern designs, and a few elaborate and magnificent homes. The lifestyle benefits of this “whole different look” trend are well documented. When neighbors of different ages, incomes and backgrounds share their lives through conversations and mutual goals, a more confident and accepting community surfaces. In Covedale, the fruition of this idea is expressed in the “Where neighbors become friends” slogan. Carriage Hill developer Randy Taylor has said, “We want to see a community that 100 years from now we can still be proud of.” My guess is that Carriage Hill residents won’t be disappointed.

New bridge adds to long history of Cleves Warsaw The Cleves Warsaw Bridge between Van Blaricum and Muddy Creek roads has been demolished. The 90-year-old, 244-feet steel truss bridge will be replaced with a three-span, concrete beam structure, with a reinforced concrete deck. New approaches will be added to straighten out the approaches to the bridge. Prus Construction is building the bridge at a cost of $200,000. The old bridge was constructed in 1923. In Betty Kamuf COMMUNITY PRESS 1970 the bridge reCOLUMNIST ceived a complete overhaul. New curbs and drains surfaces were added and it was cleaned and painted. In 1984, some of the steel structure was replaced, guardrails were upgraded and both abutments were repaired. In its 2010, after an inspection, the bridge was declared functionally obsolete. Cleves Warsaw is one of the oldest roads in Delhi Township. As early as 1820 the portion between Pontius and Hillside Avenue was a dirt road. However, early maps of Delhi Township that were drawn in 1835, 1845 and 1869, all showed a shallow spot in the creek which allowed people to walk across, but no bridge. When the weather was dry, crossing was no problem. However, when a heavy downpour occurred, pedestrians could be stranded on one side or the other until the rain and flash flooding stopped. That spot was close to the village of Ervina which was a small community at the borders of Delhi, Miami and Green townships. The 1884

map shows a bridge at that location. It was probably a wooden bridge built around 1850 when bonds were sold to build a turnpike. It was called Plank Road because it was built of wood. The turnpike ran from the villages of Cleves, through Ervina to the village of Warsaw in Price Hill. It was paid for by tolls. The old foundation is still in the creek bed. The first bridge was set at a right angle which resulted in sharp turns when entering and exiting from either end. The 1913 flood slightly altered the course of Muddy Creek and the stone foundation was damaged, but the invention of cars made the bridge obsolete. The wooden sides did not allow a clear vision of cars approaching from the other end and cars found themselves meeting in the middle. One car had to back out to allow the other car to get across. The Hamilton County Engineer decided to replace the bridge. It was to be a modern camelback truss bridge, with a pedestrian walkway on the side. The subtype of the Parker truss bridge was constructed by the Brackett Construction Co. of Cincinnati. About 2,000 cars a day crossed the bridge. Work began n the new bridge in mid-July and is expected to last until the end of May, weather permitting. The detour route is Hillside Avenue to Rapid Run Road to Pontius Road, and vice versa. The camelback, singing bridge was one of the few remaining in the state. The 90-year-old bridge was eligible for the National Register.

I can tell what’s going on, food wise, from my readers simply by the requests sent in. This week zucchini and cucumbers dominated. Apparently everybody’s zucchini is producing nonstop, just like mine. I like the fact that our Community Press family wants to find ways to use this summer veggie. Most of the requests were for zucchini bread recipes. Zucchini bread freezes well and is pretty easy to make. And the variations are endless, like the two recipes I’m sharing today. Both Rita are in my Heikenfeld Recipe RITA’S KITCHEN Hall of Fame. Requests for cucumber recipes were slightly behind the zucchini inquiries. I always think of my German mother-inlaw, Clara, when I make my version of her marinated cucumbers with fresh dill from my garden.

Classic marinated cucumbers/aka German cucumbers with vinegar and sugar

Feel free to add sliced onions when adding dressing, like Clara did.

2 large or several small cucumbers (1-1⁄2 pounds) sliced thin 1 tablespoon salt


Dressing: mix togeth-

⁄2 cup vinegar - cider or clear (I like cider) 3 tablespoons sugar or to taste Pepper to taste Generous palmful fresh dill, chopped (to taste)


Put cucumbers in colander and sprinkle with salt. Let sit 20 minutes, stirring now and then. Drain and pat dry. Pour dressing over. Stir and put in frig to chill a couple of hours or overnight.

Chocolate zucchini bread/cake

It’s a cross between a bread and a cake, so you

decide what you want to call it. Try milk chocolate chips for a milder flavor. 1 -1⁄2 cups shredded packed zucchini 1 cup flour 1 ⁄2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 ⁄4 teaspoon baking powder 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄2 to 3⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon 1 ⁄4 teaspoon allspice 1 ⁄2 cup canola oil 1 ⁄2 cup sugar 1 ⁄2 cup light brown sugar 2 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 3 ⁄4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Spray 9 x 5 loaf pan. Set aside shredded zucchini. Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and allspice. Set aside. Beat oil, sugars, eggs, and vanilla until well blended and fold in zucchini. Add flour mixture, mixing just until combined. Fold in chips. Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 55 to 65 minutes. Place on wire rack to cool 10 minutes, then remove and finish cooling.

Butterscotch zucchini bread

Don’t take it out of the oven too soon. I baked one pan 50 minutes – it looked great coming out of the oven, but it sunk in the middle when it cooled – a sure indication of underbaking. 3 eggs 1 cup oil 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 cups sugar 2 cups grated zucchini (squeeze moisture out before measuring) 2 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 ⁄4 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 to 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1 ⁄2 teaspoon ginger 1 ⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg 1 ⁄2 cup rolled oats 1 package (3.4-ounce size) instant butterscotch pudding mix 1 cup nuts, raisins or other dried fruit

Beat eggs, oil, vanilla and sugar together well. Add zucchini. Then mix the flour and the rest of the dry ingredients together and then add to the egg mixture, blending well. Pour into 2 greased,

Cucumbers and dill make for an excellent marinated salad.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

floured, wax paper lined pans. Bake 1 hour at 350oF degrees or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Lemon frosting Mix and spread on bread after it cools: 2 cups confectioner’s sugar, sifted 2 tablespoons lemon juice 4 tablespoons butter, softened

Check out my blog for more zucchini bread recipes and how to freeze zucchini recipes. Readers want to know: How do you freeze zucchini? Shredded: I don’t peel mine, though colleague and professional baker and canner Cheryl Bullis does. I don’t blanch but do pack mine in a little more than 2 cup measures, since when you thaw it, you’ll lose volume as liquid drains out. Slices: Cut into slices, 1 ⁄4 to 1⁄2 inches thick. Blanch in boiling water for 3 minutes. You’ll want the water boiling and enough to cover the zucchini. You can blanch several batches in the same water; just add more water if necessary. Cool immediately after blanching in ice water, drain very well, and pack in freezer containers or freezer baggies. (One reader likes to lay the slices in a single layer and freeze hard, uncovered, and then pack into baggies). Smoosh out all air to prevent freezer burn. Do with a straw and just suck out air or lay bag flat, smoosh out air with your hands, and freeze. Frozen zucchini should be thawed slightly, not all the way, before using in cooked dishes.

West Side woman helping support group Pink ribbons are now almost universally recognized as the symbol of breast cancer awareness and fundraising, but several local women are hoping that teal ribbons will soon be equally well known. Teal is the color adopted by ovarian cancer advocacy groups and with the national Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month approaching in September, the Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Greater Cincinnati (OCAGC) will be showing their zeal for teal as they work to create public awareness of symptoms of ovarian cancer and provide support for women affected by the disease. The local non-profit ovarian cancer resource organization will sponsor its seventh annual Power is Teal 5k Run/Walk for Ovarian Cancer Awareness on Sept. 21 starting at 8:30 a.m. at Lunken Playfield to help raise funds and raise awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer to aid in early detection. Five local ovarian cancer survivors have recently ramped up their involvement in OCAGC and are eager to engage more survivors in their support network and also continue the advocacy and awareness building to support research efforts and publicize the symptoms women should be aware of. “We know there are other survivors and re-

Susan Heitbrink of Western Hills, one of the survivors. The local organization offers comfort kit baskets for women newly diagnosed, information and guidance to local resources provided by survivors, an online network sponsored by Ovarian Cancer National Alliance, and many support programs offered in conjunction with OCAGC’s local programming partner, Cancer Support Community (CSC, formerly The Wellness Community).
