DELHI TWP. — Mikayla Hin-

ton has many interests and hobbies, but singing tops the list of her favorite things to do. The Miami Township, Hamilton County, 13-year-old said she’s been singing since she was 5 years old, and her parents have proof of it in the form of homemade videos featuring her singing Disney tunes. “It’s fun to sing,” she said. “I feel like it’s a way I can connect with emotions.” Hinton’s passion for music, her eight years of preparation, recent voice lessons and support from family and friends helped her secure a victory in this year’s Delhi Rising Star singing competition. Sponsored by the Delhi Civic Association and the Delhi Skirt Game Committee, the

A community open house with tours and activities will take place from10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19. Stephens said the hospital is on track to open for business Nov. 10, and will employ about 1,200 people. Green Township Trustee Chairman Rocky Boiman said

the $300 million project will be the centerpiece of the township, and when the hospital opens it will be the largest employer in the township. “This is a once in a generation opportunity, to have a brand new hospital open in your community,” he said. “It’s no small deal whatsoever and we’re very fortunate. We’re definitely excited about it and we’re looking forward to it opening.” Boiman said township lead-

ers see the hospital as a catalyst for even more economic development, specifically for attracting sit-down restaurants. “For the longest time the big knock on Green Township is that we don’t have enough restaurants,” he said. The hospital will help bring a variety of new restaurants to the area, as well as other businesses that will benefit from See MERCY, Page A2

New Mercy hospital on track to open this fall GREEN TWP. — In about two months, Mercy Health will dedicate the West Side’s newest hospital. Mercy Health’s West Market Leader and President Mike Stephens said construction of the new Mercy Health – West Hospital in Green Township is on schedule to open this fall. “It is a flurry of activity,” he said. “An average of 350 to 400 construction workers are there each day. A lot of the work has turned to the interior finishes.” He said he visits the site five days a week and every time he’s there something new has been finished. “Most of the patient rooms are complete and the operating rooms are ready for equipment,” Stephens said. Mercy Health is building a 650,000-square-feet, full-service hospital off of North Bend Road, near Interstate 74. The 250-bed hospital, which won a national award for architecture and design, will feature the latest advancements in patient care and comfort, stateof-the-art technologies, private patient rooms with family areas, a 2.5-acre environmentally-friendly green roof and expanded medical services for West Siders. Stephens said construction will be finished by the end of September, and then it will take several weeks for crews to bring in hospital equipment and supplies, calibrate clinical equipment and test the building’s mechanical and technology systems. Mercy Health is set to host a

She defeated fellow finalists Angela Williams-Woodard and Greg Moore. For winning the competition, Hinton received a $250 prize and the honor of performing in front of the crowd at the Delhi Skirt Game Aug. 2. “I was so excited to win,” Hinton said. “I was kind of nervous because I knew the other two singers are both in their 20s.” And when it came time to perform in front of the thou-

sands of people at the skirt game, she said she was more excited than nervous. “It was awesome,” she said. Lynne Hinton said she and her husband, Chad, are extremely proud of their daughter, who is entering the eighthgrade at Taylor High School this school year. “We just recently found video of her singing in the playroom when she was a young girl,” Mrs. Hinton said. “Even back then she had soulfulness in her voice.” She said she’s impressed with her daughter’s courage to step up in front of strangers and perform.

“She has a gift from God and she knows how to use it,” Mrs. Hinton said. “It makes me very proud.” Even Mikayla’s younger brother, Caylan, a fifth-grader at Three Rivers Elementary School, said he’s happy for his big sister. “She’s been singing since she was younger than me,” he said. “She put her heart into this and I’m really proud of her.” Mikayla, who is a member of her school choir and receives voice lessons from Three Rivers music teacher Michelle Lamb, said she looks forward to singing with the choir and performing in school musicals this year. She also hopes to sing the national anthem at some athletic events and plans to compete in more area singing contests when they arise, she said.

EAST PRICE HILL — A proposal to build a new theater in the Incline District is coming closer to reality. Cincinnati Landmark Productions, the theater group that operates the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts, the Showboat Majestic and the Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre, launched a plan last summer to raise $5.1 million to construct a new performing arts center and parking garage at the corner of West Eighth Street and Matson Place. The Incline Theater would not only bring quality entertainment to the Incline District, but it would also help spur further economic development in a neighborhood already featuring the Primavista and Incline Public House restaurants, the Flats Gallery and Corner BLOC Coffee shop. “Our goal is to really position the neighborhood for success,” said Tim Perrino, artistic director of Cincinnati Landmark Productions. “Not just for us, but also for the residents and new businesses.” His grandparents used to live across the street from the proposed site of the theater, and he has fond memories of spending many afternoons playing in the area, climbing on the rubble of the old Price Hill Incline and getting free candy from a nearby pharmacy.

“The success of this (theater) project is tied to the success and revitalization of the neighborhood,” he said. “People really care about making this neighborhood what it can be again.” Rodger Pille, communications and development director for the theater organization, said the Incline Theater project recently received a big financial boost thanks to the Cincinnati Recreation Commission’s board of directors. The recreation commission is planning a $4.2 million renovation of the Price Hill Recreation Center, and the commission’s board voted to combine that project with the theater project. Pille said bundling the projects allows them to qualify for the New Market Tax

Credit program through the federal government. He said new market tax credits administered by the Cincinnati Development Fund and PNC Bank will bring $2.1 million in funding for the theater project. In addition, he said Cincinnati’s trade and development department earmarked a $2 million economic development grant for the project in the current budget. The remaining $1 million needed to build the theater is being raised privately by Cincinnati Landmark Productions, and the group has already secured more than $500,000 toward its goal, Pille said. “We are truly in the final stage of making this project a reality,” he said. “I think it’s an exciting time for us. Everyone we’ve talked to and met with sees the value of what we can bring, what we can do and what we

envision for this neighborhood.” The Incline Theater would include a 225-seat performing arts center and on-site rehearsal hall. The theater would be built on top of a twotier parking garage accommodating up to 140 parking spaces, which would serve the entire Incline District.

Pille said they estimate the theater would have 112 show nights and more than 150 rehearsal and meeting nights, creating neighborhood vibrancy, bringing in visitors from outside the region and increasing the number of patrons for area businesses and restaurants.

West Price Hill, and they’re confident it can be repeated in the Incline District. “This isn’t our first ride on the pony,” Perrino said. “When this project breaks ground you’re going to see other developments in this neighborhood pop up like mushrooms on a summer morning after a rain.” The public financing for the project so far has been crucial, and he said they are hosting private fundraisers, public fundraising events and applying for grants to generate the roughly $500,000 they still need. The hope is to break ground on the theater in early 2014. “We have huge momentum right now,” Perrino said. “I like to say we’re rounding third and heading for home. We need the third base coach and some others to help us get across the plate.” For information about donating to the project, contact Pille at 241-6550 or rodgerpille@covedale

having a large hospital nearby, he said. Stephens said the new hospital will serve as the center of Mercy Health’s network of health care services throughout the area, and allow the health care group to offer services it does not have capabilities for now at its neighborhood hospitals in Westwood and Mount Airy. The new facility will have comprehensive cardiovascular services, a comprehensive cancer center and a women’s health center with maternity care and a family birth center, all of which are completely new to the West Side, he said. It will also have an emergency department, a comprehensive orthopaedics center and the latest surgical technologies, including robotic surgery. The hospital’s lower level will serve as the core laboratory for all of Mercy Health’s facilities in southwest Ohio. A five-story, 100,000square-feet medical office building is being constructed next to the hospital as part of the project as well, Stephens said. The office complex, which will be fully occupied with physicians offices, is on schedule to be finished just prior to the hospital being completed, he said. Physicians will begin moving into the building in early October. “It’s really an exciting time for us, but also for the residents of the West Side,” he said. “Patients prefer to receive care in the communities in which they live. Bringing those comprehensive services close to home is really what Mercy is all about.”

Pops opening Three Rivers arts center By Kurt Backscheider

CLEVES — The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra will help the Three Rivers Local School District celebrate the opening of its new arts center. Conductor John Morris Russell will lead the orchestra in the inaugural concert in the Performing Arts Center at Taylor High School, part of the new Three Rivers Educational Campus. The concert begins at 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 15, at the school, 56 Cooper Road. “I am absolutely overjoyed that we are able to partner with a worldclass organization,” said Tom Bailey, head principal of the new school. “The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra is known throughout the world for its musical excellence, and to have them come to Three Rivers and Taylor High School to be the inaugural concert for our Performing Arts Center is really a dream come true for our students and community.” Meghan Berneking, spokeswoman for the Cincinnati Symphony and Pops orchestras, said the performance is a presentation of the orchestra’s Community Concerts program, an engagement and learning program offered as part of the orchestra’s commitment to the community and music education.

“People love the Community Concerts with the orchestra because it puts world-class entertainment in their own back yards,” she said. The orchestra partnered with Three Rivers because of the district’s new school and the brand new performing arts complex opening with it, she said. “We want to be supportive of music in schools,” Berneking said. “Community Concerts also build connections with the community, and it’s clear this community has a love for the arts as evidenced by the new arts center.” The Taylor High School marching band will open the concert with a performance of their own, and then the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra will take the stage. Berneking said the or-

chestra will perform an accessible, familyfriendly program with works by composers such as Leonard Bernstein, Sergei Sergeyevich Prokofiev, George Gershwin, Richard Strauss and Aaron Copland. Camille Saint-Saens’ “Carnival of the Animals” will highlight the performance. The orchestra will also perform an arrangement of “Waiting for Wings,” a piece by Broadway composers Georgia Stitt and Jason Robert Brown commissioned and premiered by the Cincinnati orchestra in April. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students. There is a 50-cent service charge per ticket. All ticket sales are being conducted online at threeriversschools. Call 467-3200 with any questions.

Economic development moves into shade of Sunshine Law

Community Press staff report


An amendment to the state’s budget bill put economic development in the shade when it comes to Ohio’s Sunshine Law. There were a number of laws and rule changes tucked in among the funds for schools and public improvements in Hartman Senate Bill 59. One additional provision of the bill amended Ohio’s Open Records and Landrum Open Meetings laws, collectively known as the Sunshine Laws, to allow working on deals with business for economic development to the list of reasons local governments can meet behind closed doors. The amendment extends ORC 121.22, which allows the state to discuss economic development details in executive session, to local governments such as villages, cities and townships. Executive session meetings are permitted for a number of reasons, such as discussion of pending or imminent lawsuits or the hiring or discipline of a public employee. The executive sessions only allow for discussion. Ohio law re-

» Personnel matters including the appointment, employment, dismissal, discipline, promotion, demotion, or compensation of public employees or officials or the investigation of charges or complaints against a public employee or official; Citing “personnel” as the basis of an executive session is not in compliance with the law. » Purchase of property » Sale of property by competitive bidding » Conferences with attorney for township concerning disputes inolving the board of trustees; dispute must be the subjext of pending or imminent litigation; Citing “litigation” as the basis of an executive session is not in compliance with the law. » Preparing for, conducting or reviewing negotiations or bargaining sessions with public employees; » Matters required to be kept confidential by federal laws or state statute; » Details of secutity arrangements and emergency response protocols for a public body or office if disclosure would jeopardize security; » Trade secrets of a county, municipal or joint township hospital and » Veterans Service Commission Applications Source: Ohio Sunshine Laws; An Open Government Resource Manual for 2013 from the office of Ohio Attrney General Mike Dewine.

applicant’s marketing plans, specific business strategy, production techniques, or personal financial statements and it also applies to negotiations with other political subdivisions for economic development purposes in so far as the negotiations related to joint economic development districts, joint economic development zones, tax increment finance or cooperative economic development agreements,” he said. “It basically helps to keep applicants business information confidential. It also helps the township keep its negotiations confidential so the township

quires any vote resulting from discussion during an executive session must occur during the portion of the public meeting. Delhi Township Administrator Pete Landrum said it is important for people to realize that the provision does not cover all economic development discussions. “It allows a public body to hold an executive session to consider the terms of an application for economic development assistance to be provided or administered by a local government; applies only to the consideration of confidential information related to the

can get the best deal and contract. If made public, the township would not be able to negotiate in good faith as every statement, idea, tactic and so on would be already known. This would not be in the best interest of the township and more than likely it would significantly cost the township more.” Not everyone is a fan of expanding executive sessions. Curt Hartman, an attorney whose practice includes government accountability and is a former trustee in Pierce Township, said that while the Ohio Municipal League and the Ohio Township Association supported the change, he thought it was unnecessary. “There was no reason to do this,” he said. “When has an economic development opportunity been lost because this was not in place? Supporters could not point to a single situation. It’s all theoretical. ” Hartman said Cincinnati is not permitted to have executive sessions per its charter, making this not applicable to the city’s development plans. Dennis Hetzel, executive director of the Ohio Newspaper Association, wrote to his group’s members that he had yet to see evidence that more secrecy in public meetings would be a significant variable in major business decisions. His concern was that greater secrecy would lead to less public input and more mistakes; even more corruption.

“Public input beforethe-fact shouldn’t be considered an annoyance or impediment,” he wrote. He said Ohio law already allows elected bodies to meet in private to discuss real estate deals, court cases and trade secrets and to gather information so long as they don’t deliberate. Plus, there is a catch-all ex-

emption for discussions that other federal and state statutes require to be secret. Hartman and Hetzel were both unhappy about how the amendment was attached to the budget bill. “This isn’t the way to do a major change to our open meetings law,” Hetzel wrote.

Highlander girls poised for Talented Panthers begin soccer success season with high hopes By Tom Skeen

The Panthers and coach Dave Ruehl are coming off one of their best seasons in recent memory and will begin the 2013 season ranked No. 5 in The Enquirer Division I area coaches’ poll. Senior Josh Enginger headlines a talented group of returners from last season’s 144-1 team. Enginger was named first-team All-Greater Catholic League and second-team All-Ohio after leading the GCL with 13 goals. Sam Maciejewski is back at defender, while outside midfielder Nathan Herdeman will start full-time this season after spot starting in 2012. The addition of Oak Hills transfer Kory Hammann will help strengthen the Panthers’ midfield along with Nick Lamping. Senior Brian Poston will take over the goalkeeper position. With so many returning players, it allows Ruehl to do what his team does best. “It’s nice to know that we’ll be able to play the style of soccer we like to play, which is an exciting, attacking style,” the coach said. “… The team has a lot of flexibility and diversity as far as different combinations of players to use against different kinds of teams that play different kinds of styles.” Elder begins its tough schedule Aug. 20 at Colerain.

Scott Brown takes over the Highlanders after back-toback five-win seasons. Brown spent the previous three seasons at Valley View High School in Dayton. Senior Evan Merk, Tyler Mitchell, Alex Grote and Adam Kroeger, along with sophomore Nolan Norman, headline the returners from the 2012 team. Junior Noah Griffith brings some excitement to the field after missing last season due to injury. “There’s talent there,” Brown said of his roster. “The cupboard was definitely not bare. … The biggest difference when you take over a program is just getting the kids to buy in. The quicker they buy in, the quicker we can move forward and build a successful program.” Mitchell Fisher will get the start in goal, while Dominic Stephens is expected to see time at midfielder and defender. Zach Guthier and Spencer Dennis will hold down the back line for Brown, who has seen his team grow tremendously from scrimmage No. 1 to 10. “We saw a lot of growth,” the coach said. “We aren’t where we need to be today, but at least we got some signs of life.” Tyler Sander is expected to anchor the midfield, while newcomers Brett Smith, Joe Anderson and Michael Fox will add much needed depth. Brown will toss Brandon Wuestefeld and Jake Schapker up front to attack and senior Zach Mitchell will start at center back. Jordan Arlinghaus will back up Fisher in goal. The Highlanders get their season underway Aug. 24 at home against Walnut Hills.

made a run to the regional semifinals last season. Senior center midfielder Austin Harrell returns after scoring five goals and dishing out two assists last season, earning him first team AllGCL honors. Fellow senior Kiley Sunderhaus led the Bombers with seven goals last season en route to first-team honors as well. Forward Jack Caudill joins center defender David Elsen and midfielder Mitch Bernert as the other returners. “This year’s team is very excited about the 2013 season,” Schaeper said. “The players believe in their ability to experience success, and so far they have showed that they are willing to put in the work to accomplish their goals.” The Bombers start their season on the road at Loveland Aug. 17.


Gerd Hildebrandt is working with a young roster in 2013. His lone seniors are Allen Henie and Alex Faulkner, who are flanked by juniors Sam Schablein and Michael Lee. The remainder of the roster is comprised of sophomores and freshmen, led by sophomore Daniel Blake. “I’m very young this year,” Hildebrandt said. “We are mostly sophomores, so in the next couple years I should be gelling a lot more with these guys.” The Yellow Jackets being their season Aug. 19 at home against Cincinnati Christian.

Mike Rust leads a Bobcats squad that graduated 12 players from its 10-4-4 2012 team that reached the district finals. Mercy starts its season on the road against Northwest Aug. 19. No other information was available before press deadline.

Oak Hills

The momentum is building on Ebenezer Road for what could be another record-setting season for the Highlanders. After going 12-1-5 last season and reaching the district semifinals, coach Chuck Laumann returns the vast majority of his roster, including three firstteam All-GMC players from a season ago. One of them is sophomore forward Sydney Kilgore, who led the Highlanders with 14 goals last season. The two other first-teamers are juniors Bailey Feist and Katie Murray. Feist – who has verbally committed to Wake Forest University – scored six goals and had 10 assists, while Murray – who is committed to the University of Illinois – found the back of the net six times and dished out five assists. Laumann returns 40 of his 50 goals from last season, but after the graduation of most of his back line, including All-State defender Olivia Kilgore, the Highlanders will need to find some continuity on a back line that posted 11 shutouts and allowed just seven goals in 2012. The lone returner on the defense is sophomore Sydney Goins along with junior goalkeeper Emily Lohman. “We have some choices from a group of young players,” Laumann said of the “new” back line. “… We will be young, only three seniors, but we do have 11 kids with a good amount of varsity experience (overall).” Other players to watch include junior Brianna Frondorf, who scored six goals last season, and senior midfielder Kaitlyn Armentrout. Newcomers who will be competing for those spots on the back line include Rose Nienab-

er, Megan Sheridan and Rachel Royer. Senior Megan Wessel likely will see time at defender as well. “For us to be successful we need to find our back line and we need to successfully mesh the first-year players with those who are returning,” Laumann said, who is entering his 22nd year with the Highlanders. “And as with all programs, we need to stay healthy and not experience that devastating injury. The Highlanders start their season Aug. 19 at home against Anderson.


Coming off a district title, the Saints and coach Dr. Ron Quinn are poised for another successful season in 2013. Despite graduating three allleague players from a season ago, Quinn returns four starters from last year’s team. Manning the net will be senior Allie Luebbering, who had a save percentage of .780 in 2012 and posted five shutouts, including three in the Saints’ postseason run. Senior forward Jessica Frey is back after leading Quinn’s squad with eight goals last season. Fellow senior Sam Goodwin will see time at both forward and defender, while juniors Savannah Bacon (midfielder) and Melissa Trentman (defender) will see increased roles. “The enthusiasm and dedication of the players (is what I like most about the team),” Quinn said. “As a result of last year’s district title, they now believe that with hard work and a nevergive-up mentality, great things are possible.” Seton begins its season Aug. 20 at Lakota East.


Jim Mercer leads a Yellow Jackets squad that returns five All-Cincinnati Hills League players from a season ago, including first-teamer Nikki Faulkner. The sophomore led her team with 10 goals and eight assists, both of which were good enough to rank in the top 10 in the CHL. Also returning is Amanda Bowman, Elizabeth Neyer, Caitlyn Bowman and Paige Nash. Nash was second on the team with five goals. Sophomore Randi Schutte will start at keeper for Mercer after posting four shutouts in five appearances last season. The Yellow Jackets start their season Aug. 22 at Cincinnati Christian.

University of Cincinnati offensive linemen Austen Bujnoch, an Elder High School grad, was named to the watch list for the 2013 Outland Trophy, the Football Writers Association of America announced. Bujnoch appears among 75 players on the watch list for the Outland Trophy, which is awarded to the best interior lineman in college football. Bujnoch earned firstteam All-Big East Conference honors in 2012. They helped lead an offensive line unit that paved the way for a 1,000-yard rusher for the third-straight year while surrendering only 13 sacks, a mark that ranked in the Top-20 in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision. The Outland Trophy winner is chosen from three finalists who are part of the FWAA AllAmerica Team. The FWAA All-America Committee, after voting input from the entire membership, selects the 25-man team and eventually the three Outland finalists. Committee members, then by individual ballot, select the winner. Only interior linemen on offense or defense are eligible for the award; ends are not eligible.

Miliano on list

University of Cincinnati kicker Tony Miliano, an Elder High School

grad from North Bend, was one of 30 studentathletes named to the 2013 Lou Groza Award watch list, the Palm Beach County Sports Commission announced. Miliano averaged 7.5 points per game, leading UC and the Big East Conference in 2012. He finished the season 17-of-22 on field goals and 51of-53 on point-after tries for 102 points. His season mark of 102 tied for the third-best singleseason effort in school history. The junior-to-be finished 10-for-11 on field goal tries inside 40 yards with a long kick of 47 yards in the rain at Louisville. Kickers on the Lou Groza Award Watch List were chosen based on statistics from the 2012 season and 2013 expectations. Accomplishments are tabulated throughout the season and the Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award will announce its 20 semifinalists on Monday, Nov. 4. From this list, a panel of more than 300 FBS head coaches, SIDs, media members, and former winners selects the top three finalists for the award by Monday, Nov. 25. That same group then selects the national winner, who will be announced on Thursday, Dec. 12, during the Home Depot College Football Awards, broadcast live from Orlando, Fla.

SPORTS BRIEFS Mount signs Mossman

The 2012-2013 roster included athletes from Colerain, Roger Bacon, La Salle, Clark Montessori, Oak Hills, Elder, Turpin, Batavia, Scott, Dixie Heights and Simon Kenton high schools. The men’s soccer team traveled to Spain in an effort to experience how it is to play the sport of soccer in another country. They had the experience of playing some of the top teams in the world and they learned more about the cultural diversity in Spain and the way of life in that country. The team made this trip as part of their goal of continued growth, as soccer players as well as individuals. The trip lasted 10 days, Aug. 1-11. They have a week in between to rest and recharge before the start of their regular preseason campaign. While in Spain, the team stayed half of the time in Madrid and the other half in Barcelona. They trained in these cities and played some of the biggest youth teams in that country, for example: Real Madrid, Barcelona, Athletico Madrid, Valen-

Northwest High School’s Hannah Mossman will attend the College of Mount St. Joseph in the fall and play volleyball. Mossman, a 6-foot outside hitter, played for high school Head Coach Lindsey Casteel and also played for the Clippard YMCA Club team. She was a first team All-FAVC selection (2011-2012), and first team All-SWOC honoree (2012-2013), as well as a Knight Award winner. Mossman was active in many school clubs, including the Key Club, PTSA and Knights group. Hannah, the daughter of Sandy and Jerry Mossman, is planning on majoring in Sport Management.

cia and Sevilla. They also visited the Real Madrid (Santiago Bernabeu) and Barcelona (Camp Nou) stadiums as well as their respective locker rooms and award rooms. They took pictures with one of the most significant awards in the soccer world – the Champions League Trophy. Head coach Rudy Argueta said before the trip, “This is a unique and very important opportunity for our team. It will help our program, not only in the soccer sense of things, but mainly in the personal sense, just because they will learn more about the culture of the game as well as the culture of the country. They don’t only get to experience playing, but seeing their favorite stadiums and teams in the world also.” The team conducted a soccer clinic at an orphanage, to learn and give more to those in needs. The men’s soccer team is looking to make this trip a reality every three years and give the chance of a lifetime to all of those who are part of this soccer family.

Social Security benefits are more important now than ever Half of Americans have less than $10,000 in savings, and only 14 percent are very confident they will have enough money for a comfortable retirement according to a study by the Employee Benefit Research Institute. Our nation’s retirement system has been described as a “threeRichard legged stool” Schwab of pensions, COMMUNITY PRESS savings and GUEST COLUMNIST Social Security. As employer provided pensions have disappeared and saving has become more difficult for families, Social Security has never been more important. Social Security is one of the greatest anti-poverty programs in our country’s history. This most efficient, most effective retirement program is under attack by people who want us to believe that the only way to save the program is to slash benefits. U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin has a different take. The Strengthening Social Security Act of 2013 (S.B 567) introduced by Sen. Harkin

(D-IA) would: » Strengthen benefits by reforming the Social Security benefit formula – To improve benefits for current and future Social Security beneficiaries, the Act changes the method by which the Social Security Administration calculates Social Security benefits. This change would boost benefits for all Social Security beneficiaries by approximately $70 per month, but is targeted to help those in the low and middle of the income distribution, for whom Social Security has become an ever greater share of their retirement income. » Ensure that cost of living adjustments adequately reflect the living expenses of retirees – The Act changes the way the Social Security Administration calculates the Cost of Living Adjustments (COLA). To ensure that benefits better reflect cost increases facing seniors, future COLAs would be based on the Consumer Price Index for the Elderly (CPI-E.) Making this change to Social Security would result in higher COLAs, ensuring that seniors are able to better keep up with the rising costs of essential items, like health care. » Improve the long-term

financial condition of the Trust Fund – Social Security is not in crisis, but does face a longterm deficit. To help extend the life of the trust fund the Act phases out the current taxable cap of $113,700 so that payroll taxes apply fairly to every dollar of wages. Combined, these changes would increase benefits for current and future beneficiaries while making Social Security stronger for future generations by extending the life of the Trust Fund through 2049. Harkin commented on his Strengthening Social Security Act of 2013, “We must ensure that, after a lifetime of hard work, Americans are able to retire with dignity and financial independence. This legislation helps to achieve that goal.” At a time when all the other pillars of our retirement security are coming up short, we have Senator Harkin to thank for providing the leadership to preserve Social Security for the long- term. If we follow Harkin’s lead, Social Security works well into the future. Richard O. Schwab was associate head of school, and middle school head, Cincinnati Country Day School.

Evaluating what companies stand for How much do you know about the companies that you do business with? Socially responsible investing is a growing movement in which people choose their investments based on how closely a company’s values reflect their own. While socially responsible investing typically encompasses financial investments, shareholder advocacy and community investments, there is also another kind of investment to consider – an investment of one’s time and purchasing power. In today’s world, people are looking for ways to Steven Alonso transfer COMMUNITY PRESS their financial decisions GUEST COLUMNIST into real impacts that will promote their ideals. That can mean making “green,” “sustainable” or “ethical” investments. It can also mean giving your business to companies – banks, entertainment venues, restaurants – whose stated mission and philanthropic philosophies match your own. Deciding where to do business can involve a variety of considerations, even before you get to the “socially responsible” part. Does a company offer the quality you desire? How are its products rated? Does the price work with your budget? How convenient is it to do business? Another big factor is reputation. It’s the bridge that links both practical and socially responsible considerations. Most people want to work with a company that treats customers right; a company they can trust to do the right thing. That can lead to deeper questions about whether a company is socially responsible. With a little research, companies’ corporate culture, vendor and community relationships, environmental practices and more can come into focus. Here are a few tips to get started: » Friends and family.

Rita shares dilly beans, reader 7-Up cake recipes Sometimes I wish I was a high-tech person. Like a while back when I made dilly beans and took photos of the beans picked from my garden along with photos of the finished beans after canning. I still have the photo of the garden beans, but the finished beans in jars photo has vanished and I don’t know Rita how to Heikenfeld retrieve it RITA’S KITCHEN from my camera. I can’t take another photo because, well, the beans are all gone. The recipe makes four jars and were so good that we ate a jar and gave the other three away. But I promise you will love the beans, photo or not. I was blown away by the huge response to Tom W.’s request for a 7-Up cake that was published years ago in the Enquirer. The stories alone made me chuckle, not to mention how good all the recipes looked. I will share both in an upcoming blog. Today I’m sharing two versions: One from scratch, which Tom wanted, and another using a cake mix. Some folks don’t ice the cake, but others do so I’m sharing icing recipes as well.

Rita’s classic dilly beans

Friend and colleague Leah Ochs, director of Jungle Jim’s cooking

school, has a similar recipe and substitutes Sriracha sauce to taste for the pepper flakes.

minutes. Prepare a Bundt pan (spray well) and pour mixture in. Bake 45-55 minutes.

2 generous pounds green beans, trimmed to fit canning jars 4 teaspoons dill seed or 4 large heads dill 4 small cloves garlic 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, divided (optional) 21⁄2 cups clear vinegar 21⁄2 cups water 1 ⁄4 cup canning salt

Diana’s glaze

Diane didn’t say if she cooked the glaze, but I would assume the sugar has to melt, so I’d cook it over very low heat until sugar melts. Add bourbon last. ⁄2 stick butter, melted Scant 2⁄3 cup sugar 1 ⁄3 cup bourbon (or whatever, rum is good too)


Pack beans lengthwise into four hot pint jars, leaving 1⁄4-inch head space. To each pint, add 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper, 1 clove garlic and 1 teaspoon dill seed. Bring vinegar, water and salt to a boil. Pour immediately over beans, leaving 1⁄4-inch head space. Remove air bubbles by sliding a butter knife around inside edges of jars. Wipe rims clean with damp cloth. Place seals and rings on. Process 10 minutes in boiling water bath. These are best eaten chilled.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

If you don’t want to can these, cap and seal, cool to room temperature and store in refrigerator up to six months.

7-Up cake from scratch

Here’s Donna A.’s recipe from 30 years ago. Tom wanted a fromscratch recipe, so hopefully this will work.

11⁄2 cups butter, softened 3 cups sugar 5 eggs 3 cups flour

Stir in bourbon. Prick holes in cake and pour on glaze.

Doris Poore’s 7-Up cake icing

Doris, a Kentucky reader, had a recipe using a cake mix and also had an interesting icing. “The index card is all yellowed and stained. So, I know it’s a good one,” she said.

Think twice about buying at your door We’ve all experience it; someone comes to your front door trying to sell you something. But is it a good idea to buy from a door-todoor salesman? One area woman says after the Howard experiAin ence she’s HEY HOWARD! had she’ll never do it again. Jessica Jones, of Butler, Ky., says a salesman came to her door

last February. “We were home and I got a knock on the door from a gentleman. He says he was selling reflective signs for your mailbox.” The company was selling the signs for $20 apiece and Jones bought one. Her receipt says it was supposed to have been delivered in March. But now, more than four months later, she still didn’t have it. “Needless to say its still not installed. I’ve called three different times and received promises of them being out to install it – but still no

sign,” Jones says. Jones does have numbers on her mailbox, but they’re not reflective numbers so they may not be visible at night if someone calls for police, fire or an ambulance. That’s why she says she really wanted those reflective numbers for her mailbox. “I’m just aggravated. He took $20 from me that day with a promise of a sign that I never received. How many other people are out there with that same promise that maybe

After I called he finally did get the sign put on Jones’ mailbox. So, what should you do if a salesman comes knocking on your door? You could refuse to buy, as Jones has vowed. Or, if you’re interested in the product, I suggest you go ahead and place your order. But, just as with Girl Scout cookies, don’t pay until they return with the product.

I’ve received many letters from homeowners who paid for magazine subscriptions yet never received anything. In one case a homeowner did receive the magazines but realized too late she had greatly overpaid for the subscriptions. In Jones’ case I contacted the reflective sign company owner who said he was busy taking care of customers to whom he had failed to deliver the signs. He says he got behind and blamed the weather for the delay.

even forgot about it?” Jones asks. A check with the Better Business Bureau shows the company has received more than a dozen complaints, mainly from people who say they too never received their reflective signs. The BBB gives that company an “F” rating. When I told Jones about the Better Business Bureau report she said, “Wow, wow. It just goes to show don’t ever buy anything from a door-to-door salesman.” Such complaints are not at all uncommon.

Fundraiser for mountain climbers By Jennie Key

Reaching the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro is an uphill climb for two area residents who are hoping their adventure will raise awareness of eosinophilic esophagitis, an allergic inflammatory disease of the esophagus. 17-year-old Kelly Palmer has the digestive disorder and he and Terri Kersey, a teacher at St. Bernard School, are participating in a unique fundraising opportunity for EE research. An Arizona man started Climb for EE, forming a team of 10 teenage EE patients and others to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest freestanding mountain in the world, to help build awareness of the disease and fund research to help find a cure. Palmer and Kersey are working to be part of that team, raising money for research and the climb to make people more aware of EE. Palmer’s climb will also show that EE doesn’t have to be debilitating. The first part of the climb is financial. Palmer and Kersey are trying to raise $15,000 by April 2014. The money goes to CURED, a tax exempt, non-profit dedicated to find a cure for eosinophilic esophagitis and donations are tax-deductible. Palmer and Kersey are having a fundraiser beginning at 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, at the Black Sheep Public House, 3807 North Bend Road. There will be games, a split-the-

Mount St. Joe philanthropist honored College of Mount St. Joseph philanthropist Vincent Beckman recently was honored posthumously by the Greater Cincinnati Planned Giving Council with Voices of Giving Awards for his selfless planned gift. Beckman believed in the college’s mission as a Catholic liberal arts institution and donated generously to its cause. His bequest provided a substantial six-figure gift that is being used to assist three to four students annually with their education. Currently more than 95 percent of Mount students receive some sort of scholarship or financial aid, making Beckman’s generosity crucial toward their success. In addition to his donation to the college, more than 16 other area nonprofits have benefit-

and minds of teens, lighten the concerns of others, and magnify the impact of philanthropy. Magnified Giving’s founder and president is Roger Grein, a lifelong philanthropist. McAuley’s newest club, the Philanthropy Club, consisted of eight students who met monthly, each student researching and suggesting two non-profit organizations in need of donations. Based on their presentations and discussions, the young women narrowed the choices down to two. They then held a short assembly to explain to the student body how Magnified Giving works. They

offered a choice of those two non-profit enterprises to benefit from Magnified Giving. Helping Hands of Cincinnati, which helps families of patients undergoing treatment for cancer, was the ultimate choice of the students, who were surveyed online for their input. Money was then collected during activity bells ($253.21) and Magnified Giving matched the donation for $250 and added an additional $1000, for a total gift amount of $1503.21. There was a ceremony April 30 at McAuley for all participating schools to mark this occasion and new partnership.

Although most participants were from the Tristate area, some traveled from Texas, California, and even Canada, to spend a week hearing the message of the Theology of the Body. “I came from Québec to live this camp,” said young adult participant Alex Deschenes. His diocese sponsored him to attend Camp ECHO in hopes of starting a similar movement in Québec. During three days, young adults had the opportunity to immerse themselves in the teachings of Pope John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and learn more about prayer, their identity as sons and daughters of God, and how to live out the mission to love. When the high school youth arrived, the young adults served as their mentors and “family group” leaders. The teens experienced the Theology of the Body through talks, games, worship, sacraments, small group discussions, and even a talent show. “Camp ECHO was one of the most amazing experiences ever,” said youth participant Lindsay Hoffmeister. “My favorite part would have to be meeting all the amazing mentors. I became so close to so many people in such a short amount of time.” In addition to the youth and young adult participants, a core team of adults helped throughout the week. A Benedictine monk, a diocesan priest, a postulant, seminarians, a newly married couple, several young families, a few moms, and single people made up the Camp ECHO team. This created an intentional Christian community where all vocations were present and

sharing their unique gifts. “This experience was made of all the right stuff,” said Ethan Moore, a seminarian for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, who attended Camp ECHO as a young adult participant. “There was prayer, community, laughter, fun, and inspiration, topped with the power of the Holy Spirit.” Father Jason Bedel, who served as the camp’s spiritual director, agreed. “I witnessed the whole group grow in self-knowledge as they were reminded of the great dignity we share as human beings made in God's image.” For some, Camp ECHO

was the first time they encountered the message of the Theology of the Body. The result was transformational. “Camp ECHO was incredibly freeing,” said young adult participant Forest Hempen. “Before Camp ECHO, I didn't know very much about the Theology of the Body, but I felt drawn to it. Sitting there at camp, listening to Brian and Courtney speak, I had an understanding and peace that this is it. Every single part of this teaching is ridiculously engaging and jampacked with hope. I'm extremely grateful for all the people who pushed me to take part in Camp ECHO, and I'm pumped to

get out there and let God use me to share the Theology of the Body.” While some participants were moved by their first encounter with the Theology of the Body, others were simply grateful to be part of an authentic Christian community. “From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all the work that you do for us teens as you help us grow closer to Christ,” said youth participant Miguel Bernal.
