Santa Maria Community Services is helping area child care providers meet the everyday needs of children. The Price Hill-based organization recently received a $15,000 grant from The Women’s Fund of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation for its Stronger Family child care Providers in Price Hill program. Leslie Schultz, marketing development specialist for Santa Maria, said the Women’s Fund grants committee and leadership council approved the grant to fund Santa Maria’s efforts to assist child care providers and offer them resources and business knowledge to help them maintain an adequate income. “Families of the Price Hill and Westwood areas are in need of high quality child care,” she said. “The need to establish well-structured learning centers exists, while child care providers in the area are striving to provide appropriate child care environments.”

“The need to establish well-structured learning centers exists, while child care providers in the area are striving to provide appropriate child care environments.”

Leslie Schultz Marketing development specialist for Santa Maria Community Services

She said although training costs and other expenses related to running a home child care business can be high, providers in the area are putting forth great effort and determination to keep their businesses open. And Santa Maria is helping them. Schultz said the organization is using the grant funding to supply at least one piece of child-size furniture to providers’ homes, offering them better quality child care and marketability. She said a child care coach will also assess the child care quality of each of the 33 homes in the Stronger Family child care Providers in

Price Hill program and coach providers on improvement and business development strategies. “A large focus will be directed toward assuring that each child care provider receives proper child care materials such as diaper changing stations, outlet covers and child safety gates to ensure that providers can continue to offer a safe and clean environment for children,” Schultz said. She said the grant is through a partnership of The Women’s Fund of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation and The Charlotte R. Schmidlapp Fund. The Women’s Fund is dedicated to funding opportunities to empower women by strengthening them and making them equal community partners, she said. Santa Maria Community Services, 2918 Price Ave., provides the neighborhood with educational tools and resources to help build strong families, promote healthy residents and foster neighborhood revitalization for more than 112 years.

St. William Church to host Oktoberfest By Kurt Backscheider

Roll out the barrels. The grounds at St. William Church will once again be transformed into a Bavarian village for the parish’s fourth annual Oktoberfest. The celebration of friendliness and goodwill is set for 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 11, and 12:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 12. “It’s going to be a festive atmosphere,” said the Rev. Andrew Umberg, St. William’s pastor. “I see it as a cultural celebration of our German Catholic

heritage.” He said many people associate Catholicism with Italy and Ireland, but don’t realize there are very many Catholics in GerUmberg many as well. Umberg said Bavaria, where Oktoberfest originated, has a dense Catholic population, and St. William’s Oktoberfest is an authentic nod to the German Catholic ancestry of many West Siders. “I take the ‘k’ in Oktoberfest

very seriously,” he said. “We pride ourselves on having good German food and imported beer.” In addition to the German food and imported beer, those who attend can also enjoy the live German music performed each day. Umberg said he would like to see people getting up out of their chairs to dance the waltz, polka and chicken dance. On Sunday, football fans will be able to watch the Cincinnati Bengals battle the New England Patriots on a large screen television. Admission is $3 for adults and

$1 for children ages 12 and younger, or $7 per family. Admission includes a voucher for $1 off a food purchase. St. William parishioner Tina Geers said the festivities will take place in the lower parking lot and the rectory driveway, as well as inside Father Reardon Hall. “Join the St. William community as we celebrate the spirit of gemütlichkeit (German for cordiality and friendliness) and good will on Cincinnati’s West Side,” Geers said.

New administrator nurturing students By Kurt Backscheider

Trish Duebber said she believes everyone has the ability to succeed in life. They just need to be nurtured in order to achieve what is possible. She’ll be working to nurture the next generation of successful adults as the new assistant principal at Taylor High School. “We are developing students to be independent thinkers and strong individuals,” she said. “I believe the abilities that each person needs to be successful in life reside in all of us and only need to be nurtured into being.” Duebber said she has taken an interesting path en route to her career as an educator.

Wiffle Ball tourney helps in cancer fight It’s plastic; it’s perforated and it’s known for backyard fun. It’s Wiffle Ball. And if Cincinnati breast cancer organization, Pink Ribbon Girls and West Siders Mike and Gina Fieler have it their way, the Wiffle Ball will also be known as a way to raise money for the awareness of breast cancer. This year’s Pink Ribbon Girls sixth annual Family Wiffle Ball Event is in honor of St. Ann Groesbeck parishioner and Colerain Township native Kim Henn, who is a three-time breast cancer survivor. It will be 411 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 18, at Kuliga Park, 6717 Bridgetown Road. All proceeds will benefit Pink Ribbon Girls, a local organization that provides a support network for young women with breast cancer. The idea for the fundraiser sprang from a childhood friendship between Mike Fieler and Tracie Metzger, Pink Ribbon Girls’ cofounder and executive director. The two attended Our Lady of Visitation School in Bridgetown and today their children attend

the school and many of the same activities together. In the past, the Fielers have hosted all-male Wiffle Ball tournaments on their five acres of property, but over the past five years, have decided to open it up to families and friends for a good cause. “Pink Ribbon Girls is such a wonderful organization for young women who may feel alone and isolated after their breast cancer diagnosis,” Gina Fieler says. “The success we’ve had in not only raising money for Pink Ribbon Girls, but also in creating awareness in the community is truly remarkable.” More than 3,000 people attended last year’s event raising more than $30,000. Like in year’s past, each of the four Wiffle Ball fields will feature home run walls mimicking baseball’s classic ballparks such as Fenway, Wrigley and Great American. Some of the Ben-Gal cheerleaders will be in attendance from 5-7 p.m. for a meet and greet and photo opportunities. New this year will be a Sports Clips station that will feature

More Pink info Pink Ribbon Girls is a Cincinnati-based, non-profit organization committed to helping young women diagnosed with breast cancer. PRG also educates the public about breast cancer in young women via a speaker’s bureau. For more information go to haircuts and hair spray painting for a $5 donation. The Pink Ribbon Kids Area will continue to offer kids face painting, temporary tattoos and much more. Families can also buy tickets for the home run derby contest, gift basket raffle and silent auction. The cost of the event is $50 per family, which includes admission to the event, entry to play in the six versus six Wiffle Ball tournament, live musical entertainment provided by the Sullivan Janszen Band, giant screen TV which will be playing the Saturday college football games, a family giveaway item and four food tickets for Skyline, Trotta’s Pizza and snow cones included for those who pre-register.

Joseph Bredestege received his Eagle Scout rank during ceremony at St. Aloysius on the Ohio in Sayler Park

5 Eagle Scouts, all brothers Gannett News Service Let it never be said that the Bredestege boys are unprepared. Just before Joseph Bredestege’s induction as the fifth and last Bredestege Eagle Scout at St. Aloysius-on-the-Ohio Church, the 18year-old chuckled about his accomplishment. “With four older brothers as Eagle Scouts, I didn’t want to be the odd duckling left out,” said Joseph, of North Bend, the pressure lifted on a fine and sunny summer day in Sayler Park.

Earning Eagle rank before Joseph were brothers Matt, now of Summerville, S.C., in 1996; Andrew, of Norfolk, Va., in 1997; and Gregory and Mark, both of North Bend, in 2004 and 2007, respectively. Becoming an Eagle Scout is rare. To do it, boys must earn 21 merit badges and, among other requirements, complete a leadership service project, all before they turn 18. Joseph’s project was a renovation of exterior steps at St. Aloysius School and a replacement of

the ragged wooden railing running alongside the steps with Trex, a durable wood substitute. He completed the work about a month before his 18th birthday. Just less than 6 percent of the 898,230 Boy Scouts nationwide earned Eagle Scout rank in 2009, according to the Boy Scouts of America. So the odds of five brothers accomplishing the feat, were it to be calculated, would be astronomical. As Joseph passed through the Eagle Court of Honor ceremony as notable Eagle Scouts such as


Joseph Bredestege, from left, Mark Bredestege, Gregory Bredestege and Matthias Bredestege have all received the Eagle Scout rank. Joseph was the latest Eagle Scout, receiving his medal recently at St. Aloysius on the Ohio in Sayler Park. Neil Armstrong, Gerald Ford and John Tesh have before him – there were tears, laughter and thanks for all the people who helped him reach the honor. And in a surprise, four of the brothers – Andrew, a petty officer in the U.S. Navy, was unable to attend – thanked their parents Tom and Cheryl for the 25 years they have committed to serving the Boy Scouts of America as their sons did. Letters sent to Tom and

Cheryl included missives from President Barack Obama, former Presidents Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush, Archbishop Dennis Schnurr and Bengals Coach Marvin Lewis. Cheryl said that, as different as her sons are personality-wise, being a Boy Scout and an Eagle Scout is the one thing they all shared. “That’s pretty special,” she said.

Kiwanis Club awards scholarship

New teacher

Gannett News Service The Kiwanis Club of CheviotWestwood recently awarded the 2010 Foster Williams Scholarship to Mary Schultz. Schultz, a 2010 graduate of William Henry Harrison High School, will attend the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology this fall. The $1,500 Foster Williams Scholarship is awarded to an outstanding student who has participated in 4H programs. Williams was the first chairman of the club’s Kiwanis committee, a role he continued for 32 years until he became chairman emeritus in 1970.


The Kiwanis Club of Cheviot-Westwood recently awarded the 2010 Foster Williams Scholarship to Mary Schultz. Schultz was honored at the club’s Aug. 2 meeting. The scholarship is one several club programs funded with proceeds from the annual Harvest Home Fair.

Summit Country Day students get sunny surprise The recent return to Summit Country Day School was made special by a group of first graders who planted sunflower seeds along the driveway on the last day of school before summer break. Students in Ceil Johnson’s class planted what has become the St. Julie Sunflower Patch. A few seeds developed into fully blooming sunflowers now towers over a colorfully-painted bench installed by Lower School art teacher Jan Wiesner. Both teachers say that they use the sunflower as inspiration in their classes; Johnson’s students paint fingerprint sunflowers in religion class. The sunflower patch is small, but it bears a reminder from St. Julie Billiart, founder of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur who started this private Cincinnati school 120 years ago. She said, “Just as the sunflower turns always to the sun, we should always turn towards God.”

The flower garden also calls to mind St. Julie’s educational philosophy on how to help children blossom. St. Julie held that the best education is based on personal knowledge and understanding of each child. “The fundamental principle behind a Notre Dame education is developing a well-rounded child,” said Interim Head of School Rich Wilson. “If we can develop a child to his or her fullest potential academically, socially, spiritually, physically and artistically, then grace and wisdom are sure to follow.”

Summit Country Day School students were recently welcomed back to a new school year with the St. Julie Sunflower Patch. Students seen here showing off some of the sunflowers are, from left: Front row, Gus Schlomer of Delhi Township, Jamie Gieseke of Hyde Park, Kendall Hamilton of Fairfield, Ingrid Kindel of Hyde Park; back row, Emily Taylor of Amelia and Gabby Castellini of Hyde Park.

YMCA seeking mentors With a long history of fostering resiliency, life skills and character values in young people; the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati is taking engagement a step further with its all new YMCA mentoring program. It is seeking caring adults want to help nurture the positive growth in a student attending the CincyAfterSchool program at Westwood Elementary or Mount Airy Elementary Schools. The site-based YMCA mentoring program will serve students ages 6 to 18 and will focus on outcomes such as improving academic performance, an

improved relationship with his/her primary caregiver, and more positive behavior. YMCA mentors will meet with their mentees weekly for a year either at their local YMCA branch (they will have free use of the branches during their visits together) or at the student’s school. A key feature of the program is the inclusion of parents from involvement in the youth application process to communication with the adult volunteer. Unique to YMCA mentoring, youth will be empowered by developing with assistance a goal plan that includes age appropriate career explo-

ration and giving back by participating with their mentor in service learning projects. Important to the success of the program is support for mentors. The YMCA will provide 15 hours of training over four weeks in understanding cultural/social development, youth culture, risk factors, and more; ongoing support by a YMCA mentoring coordinator and the YMCA Mentoring Resource Center; and optional monthly mentor support meetings. To learn more, the public is invited to call YMCA Mentoring at 513-2463230.

Jobs via Mount St. Joe aid nonprofits Gannett News Service Nearly 30 non-profit agencies landed a much needed boost this summer, thanks in large part to a unique jobs program offered through the College of Mount St. Joseph. Now in its fifth year, the college’s Summer Employment Initiative placed more than 70 students into partand full-time jobs this summer at 28 nonprofits across Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Funded by the SC Ministries Foundation – a public grant-making organization – the competitive program connects students to a variety of local agencies where they take on roles in accounting, marketing, public relations and information technology among others. For the students, the $9an-hour jobs can go a long way to help with school bills, and can fulfill course requirements for internships. And for the non-profits, the student workers help cover jobs that otherwise would go undone because of tight budgets and cutbacks caused by the recession. “We encourage the students to engage in the nonprofits and the experience introduces them to some of the work that’s our there for them after they graduate,” said Peggy Smith, a human resources specialist who oversees the program for Mount. “It really is a program that keeps giving back.” Jeff Ward, a senior majoring in communications, served this summer as the “cyber deputy” at Our Daily Bread in Over-theRhine. The Race Street nonprofit provides 500 meals and other services each day

to local low-income and homeless residents. Ward spent his mornings helping the non-profit prep meals for the day. In the afternoon, he worked in the agency’s computer lab teaching local residents basic computer skills and how to use the Web for online job applications and conducting job hunts. “Having access to the Internet for a job search is such a key thing, but it’s something that a lot of people have to go without if they don’t have a place to go,” said Ward.” I’ve never experienced homelessness before, and this has really

opened my eyes to the kind of need that exists in the Tristate.” Wanda R. Nance, a junior, helped the agency create an electronic database for its more than 3,800 volunteers. Until Nance’s help, the agency was working with only paper files stacked in boxes that had been stored in packed a back room. Nance, 48, a business administration major, said her time at Our Daily Bread hits close to home. “I was actually homeless myself years ago when I first moved to Cincinnati,” she said.”We moved from church to church until we

found a place. I’ve enjoyed being able to give and be part of this organization, and I’m taking a lot away from this experience.” Without Nance and Ward, Our Daily Bread’s computer lab would likely have been closed this summer and their volunteer files left in boxes, said Sister Mary Beth Peters executive director at Our Daily Bread.” “These students are providing services that we desperately need, but simply can’t afford,” Peters said.”The program offers exactly the kind talent we need to do things that otherwise we would have to go without.”

Clash of the Titans

Fairfield sweeper Addison Hocter, senior captain, battles senior forward Corey Cason in the Sept. 2 match between the two schools at the Panther Athletic Complex. The teams tied 1-1 off goals from Ryan Welch (Elder) and Troy Wintermeyer (Fairfield). More photos can be found in the photo galleries.

This week at Elder

• The Elder cross country team finished first in the Finish Timing Invitational at Wilmington College, Aug. 28. Elder’s Josh Makin was the third top finisher at 16:16; Corey Zielinski was fourth at 16:16; Josh Rieskamp was seventh at 16:33 and Nathan Lauck was 10th at 16:42.

The Seton High School soccer program is not off to the start it would like, but the team is enthusiastic about playing for first year coach Ron Quinn. Quinn brings a wealth of experience to the program, which includes 12 years as head coach of the women’s soccer team at Xavier University. Quinn, who coached the boys’ squad at Loveland High School for the past two seasons, accepted the position at Seton because he wanted a challenge. “Seton hasn’t been as successful as I think they could be,” he said. “Part of (me taking the job) is looking for a challenge, as well as it being a comfortable place to be.” Quinn’s enjoyed his short time at the school because his players have been so receptive to his coaching style. “They’ve been a really good group to work with and get to know,” Quinn said. “I’ve been impressed with their leadership and whole demeanor. It’s been refreshing to coach these girls.” Senior Stacey Volker is pleased with the fresh perspective Quinn brings to the Seton program.


Seton High School’s Stacie Volker (right) dribbles the ball during a match against at Mason High School on Aug. 31. “We have a new coach and a new outlook on things,” Volker said. “We all want to be here and we all want to play hard.” Quinn is also pleased with the senior leadership that Volker, Abbey Scherer, Katie Phillips, Lindsey Thompson, and Mollie Williams bring to the team. Volker didn’t waste any time showing the public why Quinn included her in that class when she scored a goal during the first game of the season against Fairfield High School Aug. 26.

While the girls, who are 0-2 on the year, work toward turning the program around, they are having a fun playing the game they love. “I think the season is going well,” Scherer said. “The team is meshing well together and it’s a lot of fun playing for coach Quinn.

Lions the team to tame in the HCAC By Tony Meale

After winning the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference last season, the College of Mount St. Joseph football team is the preseason pick to do it again – and that’s just fine with Lions head coach Rod Huber. “We want the target on our backs,” he said. “You’re not a true champ until you’ve defended your title.” The Lions were an offensive juggernaut last year, averaging more than 32 points and 400 yards per game. They return senior tailbacks Jake Davis (Anderson), who led the HCAC in rushing with 891 yards and 12 touchdowns, and Noah Joseph (Georgia), who finished fourth in the HCAC with 689 yards and also added seven touchdowns. Davis’ rushing totals are even more impressive given that he is diabetic. “He practices at a rate he can tolerate,” Huber said. “He’s truly committed to

being a college student-athlete. It really says a lot about him.” A potent rushing attack will be key to the Lions’ offensive success, as fifthyear senior Chris Howland (Loveland) takes over the reins at quarterback. Howland’s top target will be senior game-breaker Derick Tabar (Colerain), who last year led the team in receptions (49), receiving yards (1,002) and receiving touchdowns (14). No other Lions wideout had more than 323 yards or two touchdowns. “Derick’s an all-conference player, and he’ll be our No. 1 target again,” Huber said. Junior Joe Noble (Colerain) will bring stability to the offensive line, while the Mount returns loads of talent defensively, including senior linebacker and reigning HCAC Defensive Player of the Year Erik Prosser (Oak Hills), who last year had 106 tackles – including 5.5 for loss – along with one sack and two fumble recoveries. He was named to the American Foot-

Hambrick had 13.0 tackles for loss and a league-best 10

sacks, while Fox had 4.0 tackles for loss and two sacks. “They both have a tremendous blue-collar attitude,” Huber said. “They’re get-in-the-trenches kinds of kids.” The Lions, which open the season at home against Wilmington Sept. 4, are gunning for their fifth league title in school history. “That’s always the goal,” Huber said. “The players change, the coaches leave, but the goal is always to win

a conference title.” A league title would give the Lions an automatic berth in the Division III playoffs. The Mount, which has qualified for the postseason five of the last six seasons, carries an 0-5 all-time playoff record, including a 42-14 loss to Wittenberg last November. “We’re not proud of it, but we’re aware of it,” Huber said. “We’re trying to progress toward postseason wins.” Huber is certainly on the right track. After taking over as head coach in 2000, Huber went 2-18 during his first two years but has since gone 62-23. He attributed the success to his coaching staff, which features several former local high school coaches, including Vince Suriano (Anderson) and Bob Crable (Moeller). “Over the next four years, if we keep doing what we’re doing, our goal is to make a run at a national championship,” Huber said. “That was a pipe dream eight to 10 years ago. Now it isn’t.” \

Looking for an opening

Elder High School senior running back Ben Coffaro (5) looks for an opening against several Cardinals, including junior linebacker Joe Bolden (7), during a 44-12 loss to Colerain at The Cage, the Cardinals home field, Sept. 3. It was the most points allowed by the Panthers since 2007 and their most lopsided loss since 2005.


Mayborg got his first goal of the season at 33:44, putting ahead 2-1 at the half. In the second half, Zack Schwab scored at 66:35 mark tying the game two each. Defensive play dominated the match until Michael Beam got his second goal with :28 left. Beam headed the ball past the

Last week’s question

Would you consider buying one the new models of electric cars, such as Nissan Leaf or Chevy Volt? Why or why not? “No. These cars are so subsidized by the government that they do not, at this time, represent an answer to our nation’s energy and environmental challenges. “Let the research continue and perhaps someday we will have better battery technology. Perhaps even hydrogen fuel cells or liquid natural gas (LNG) are the answer for powering cars and trucks. My understanding is that LNG is very viable today for much wider usage. “Meanwhile, the government subsidy for the production of technologies like electric cars, windmills, solar cells, ethanol, etc. is very wasteful. Let’s be smart about this.” T.H.

“I definitely would, if I had the financial resources, and if I could still keep another vehicle in case the battery was drained. I’d like to see how they perform, but we really can’t afford the luxury. “Luckily, our cars are both paid for and our mortgage is paid off or we would have a tough time.” B.B. “Right now, I would not buy a new electric car. I always like to give cars a year or so on the market to see if there are any ‘bugs.’ “Also, in waiting, the price normally comes down just a little bit. However, I really like the idea of going electric with our automobiles.” J.W.

Call engineer for foundation inspection

Do you have foundation cracks, wall cracks, sticking doors and windows and sloping floors? Consult an independent professional engineer first to determine the cause of the problem. Foundation cracks due to differential foundation settlement can be caused by several conditions. The building code requirement for at least 30-inch footing depth was established to resist frost heave from ice expansion in the ground during the winter months. The top layer of soil has gone through these types of changes over the decades and is typically not very compacted. Some of the soils in the Greater Cincinnati area are classified as expansive clay. This type of soil changes volume when the moisture content changes. The soil shrinks in the dry summer and fall, when the rain quits falling as seen by cracks in ground. When the moisture returns to the soil during the winter and spring due

to higher quantities of rain and snow, the soil swells back to its previous volume. This type of differential movement can be seen in housMichael es that have Montgomery cyclical cracks open and Community which close, doors rubPress guest bing the frames columnist part of the year, etc., during the various seasons. Watering along the exterior house foundation may help control this movement, but should be started very early in the year. Foundations that are supported at different soil depths are likely to settle differentially. This condition is typical when a shallow foundation is placed near a deeper basement foundation or on sloping lots. In older homes, underground

waste piping and/or underground downspout piping can crack or break. When the piping fails water leaks along the footing, softening the soil, causing the foundation to settle differentially. The typical repair for differential foundation settlement is underpinning piers that extend the foundation deeper into the soil. There are several types of underpinning repairs. The foundation pier systems offered by foundation repair contractors cost in the range of $130 to $200 per foot of wall to be supported. The work is expensive and there are many variables in the soil, house construction and support methods to consider. A professional engineer can evaluate all of these factors and offer an unbiased opinion for the most permanent and efficient method of stabilization. An independent professional engineer should inspect the property first to determine the actual cause of the differential movement and suggest the appropriate

Is smog threatening your health? It is smog season again. This year, the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI) is raising awareness about the health risks associated with smog and air pollution. The goal if this information campaign is to get residents to take action against air pollution in the Greater Cincinnati region. “Smog is not only an environmental issue, it’s also a health concern,” said OKI board president and Campbell County Judge Executive Steve Pendery. “Because many people are unaware of smog’s health implications, they do nothing to protect themselves.” Exposure to smog can limit the ability to breathe, reduce lung function and irritate respiratory systems. Smog may aggravate chronic lung diseases such as emphysema and bronchitis. Studies have shown that exposure to air pollution may reduce the immune system’s ability to fight off bacterial infections in the res-

piratory system. Air pollution has even been linked to appendicitis and ear infections. Smog is a pollutant that affects everyCallie one. Those parHoltegel ticularly at-risk include children, Community adults who are Press guest active outdoors, columnist people with respiratory diseases and the elderly. It is important for sensitive groups to know if a smog alert is in effect. Smog alerts are issued when there is a high level of ozone or particle pollution making the air unhealthy. When a Smog Alert is in effect, sensitive groups should avoid outdoor activity. Others should limit outdoor exertion and plan outdoor events when the pollution levels are lower, like in the mornings or evenings. To

know if a smog alert has been issued, listen or watch local news, or call 800-621-SMOG to receive smog alerts by e-mail or fax. While limiting time outdoors can help protect well-being from the negative impact of smog, the best way to ensure a healthy life is to do your share for cleaner air. Joining the fight against smog is the ultimate health protection from air pollution and the greatest contribution to the current state of air in the Tristate. The American Lung Association released their annual report card for 2010 on Air Quality in cities in the United States. Cincinnati was ranked as the ninth most polluted city by yearround particle pollution and 18th most polluted by ozone. This ranking illustrates the severity of air pollution in the OKI region and the necessity for individuals to make positive contributions to air quality. Doing your share is something that can be simple and easy. Indi-

repairs, if repairs are even necessary. All cracks are not a foundation problem. If foundation repairs are suggested, the engineer can provide an engineering design plan with the appropriate type of pier placed in strategic locations that several contractors can use to make their bid. The plan may be used to obtain a building permit and provide a record of the repair for the future, such as during the sale of the property. Foundation contractors typically send out a sales person that does not have any formal training and needs to sell their product, not an unbiased professional engineer. Only a professional engineer is legally allowed to practice engineering. Contractors cannot suggest they are an engineer, unless they are state licensed professional engineers.

Cincinnati was ranked as the ninth most polluted city by year-round particle pollution and 18th most polluted by ozone. This ranking illustrates the severity of air pollution in the OKI region. viduals can reduce smog by riding a bike, refueling after 8 p.m., conserving electricity, carpooling, taking the bus and eliminating unnecessary vehicle trips. “How you deal with smog on a daily basis matters. Changing your daily habits could change your life,” said OKI Executive Director Mark Policinski, “In fact, it may save your life.” These potentially serious and harmful effects illustrate the importance of knowledge and understanding smog levels.

Answers about disability, survivors benefits I recently helped staff a Social Security booth at the Midwest Black Family Reunion at Sawyer Point, which attracted an estimated 100,000 visitors. Below are just a few of the many questions our employees answered during the two-day event. Q: How does Social Security decide if I am disabled? A: For an adult to be considered disabled, Social Security must determine that you are unable to do the work you did before and unable to adjust to any other work which exists in significant numbers in the national economy. Also, your disability must last or be expected to last for at least one year or to result in death. Social Security pays only for total disability. No benefits are payable for partial disability or short-term disability (less than a year). For more information, read Disability Benefits (SSA Publication No. 05-10029), available online at pubs/10029 .html.

Q: I currently receive Social Security disabili ty benefits. Can I still get my regular Social Secu rity retirement benefits when I Sue Denny reach full retireSocial ment age? you are Security stillA: Ifreceiving public affairs Social Security specialist disability benefits when you reach your full retirement age, we will automatically switch you from disability benefits to retirement benefits at that point. The money amount will remain the same – we will just classify you as a retiree instead of a person with a disability. Q: My husband is deceased. Will I be able to receive survivors benefits? A: To receive benefits, the deceased worker – in this case,

the husband – must have earned the required number of Social Security credits. See below for other important information about eligibility requirements: • A widow (or widower) may be able to receive full benefits at age 65 if born before 1940. (The age to receive full benefits is gradually increasing to age 67 for widows and widowers born in 1940 or later.) Reduced widow/er benefits can be received as early as age 60. If the surviving spouse is disabled, benefits can begin as early as age 50. • A widow (or widower) can receive benefits at any age if she takes care of the deceased worker’s child who is entitled to a child’s benefit and younger than age 16 or disabled. • A deceased worker’s former wife (or husband) who is age 60 or older (as early as age 50 if disabled) can get benefits if the marriage lasted at least 10 years. A former spouse, however, does not have to meet the age or length-ofmarriage rule if she is caring for

C.O. Harrison begins year of birthday celebrations

By Heidi Fallon

High Five is the theme for the C. O. Harrison Elementary School’s 50th anniversary celebration. It will be a year-long party that started Aug. 30 with a flag raising and rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday.” Principal Deborah Haffey said her PTA is planning a party around each of the five decades the school has been in existence.

The school was named for the late C. O. Harrison, a Oak Hills district principal for 32 years. “He was the principal at Delhi back when it was an elementary and had only six teachers,” Haffey said. “His name was Creed Oney, but he preferred C.O.,” she added. “Colonels is our mascot because Mr. Harrison was a Kentucky Colonel and when he retired, he went back to his farm in Kentucky.” Harrison’s oil portrait was moved

from its prominent spot in the school lobby to a grassy spot near the flag pole for the ceremony. “I like his bow tie,” said fifthgrader Lauren Rippy, who also admitted she really didn’t know much about the man. The birthday kickoff included a peppy version of the school’s spirit song and cupcakes for all 1,007 students. Future birthday celebrations will feature student art work and visits from former students and staff.


Zachery Howard and Luke Banschbach, C. O. Harrison Elementary School kindergarten students, ended up wearing more of the 50th birthday cupcakes than actually eating them at the close of the school’s morning celebration.

How many friends does truth have in our lives? Truth often seems difficult to find. That’s not because it wants to be so, but because we need it to be so. Humans can’t stand too much reality at a time. Imagine our chagrin if we actually knew the truth about ourselves, our weaknesses, unworthy motives and pretenses. Think of the trouble we would experience if we tried to speak the truth to everyone. A current Geico TV ad about truthful Abe Lincoln depicts our dilemma. Lincoln is asked by his wife, “Do you think this dress makes me look too fat?” He looks, silently struggles, anxiously fidgets, then holds his thumb and forefinger an inch apart… and she leaves the room in a huff. We hide from the truth. Oh, we do permit ourselves to know some of the truth - as long as it’s agreeable to what we already think and

treats us favorably. Mostly we’re easy receptors today of lies, greased words and half truths. As the American Melting Pot expands and Father Lou becomes even Guntzelman more diverse, we reminded of Perspectives are our founder’s desire that we be a nation of tolerance toward each other as we search for the truth in our lives. Most of us try hard to be tolerant. This means that we deal with others and their beliefs respectfully. G.K. Chesterton once remarked, “I can have regard for someone else’s belief, as I would their pet, without being expected to take it home with me.” Being

tolerant does not mean each of us can’t hold to what we have good reason to believe is truth. When our ego becomes too narcissistic, we take it personally if someone else believes differently. We insist they bend their conviction to align with ours. Tragically, violence and religious wars have been waged to accomplish that. What was needed was respectful discussion and openness. When we sincerely believe we hold something of truth, we naturally want to share it with others (as we do all good things.) In this sharing, two factors are to be kept in mind. First, the most powerful way of sharing what we believe to be of truth is to live it in our daily lives. It’s said that as St. Francis of Assisi lay dying, he told his followers gathered around his bed to,

“Preach the gospel everywhere, and if necessary, use words.” The second factor in trying to share what we perceive as truth, is not just to tell the truth, but to tell the truth in love. This means to tell it with concern not only for the truth that is being told, but with concern also for the people to whom it is being told. For everyone to whom we speak carries their own experiences and dreams, fears and doubts, anxieties and beliefs on their backs the way a snail carries his shell. Tolerance means acknowledging and respecting theirs and our own. Author J. Ruth Gendler compares “Truth to a good thief who steals illusions and replaces them with what is real and precious. He can climb over any security fence we have constructed to keep out disturbing influences.

And although he can unlock any window or door, he is not interested in breaking in or getting away. He insists on being welcomed and invited to stay.” Truth is closer to us than we realize, especially in our silent times. He is always there lingering in the long pauses between difficult questions and possible answers, between our uncertainties and perceived certainties, between the beliefs of one person and the differing beliefs of another. Truth is willing to wait at long time for us. The one thing that Truth will not do is stay away with us without being treasured and loved.

You’ll go cuckoo for coconut-date-almond granola It’s official. For the most part, the kids, at least those attending elementary and high school, are in full session now. It won’t be long before they get into the routine that school days bring. So starting them out with a good breakfast is key. There are always those kids, though, who just don’t want to eat breakfast. If that’s the case at your house, try this chunky granola recipe and even if they run out the door with a handful to eat on the go, it’s better than no breakfast at all.

Chunky granola with dates, coconut, almonds

I like this as a breakfast cereal or over frozen yogurt. 2 cups old fashioned oats

1 cup w h o l e almonds 1 ⠄2 cup e a c h : f l a k e d coconut and raw cashews Rita or nuts of Heikenfeld y o u r Rita’s kitchen choice 1 ⠄2 cup packed brown sugar or bit more to taste 1 teaspoon ground allspice 2-3 teaspoons cinnamon 1 ⠄4 cup butter 3 tablespoons honey 1 cup pitted dates, each cut crosswise into thirds or chopped coarsely Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Mix oats, almonds, coconut, cashews, brown sugar, allspice and cinna-

mon together. Melt butter and honey and pour over granola mixture, blending well. Spread on sprayed baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add dates, mix to separate any clumps. Continue to bake until golden brown, stirring frequently, about 10 minutes or so more. Store airtight at room temperature, or freeze for up to six months.

Bravo’s dipping sauce

I’ve had so many requests for this I lost count. Carol Ryan found this in Bravo’s cookbook. Carol said she didn’t discard all of the herbs. “I added the herbs to the oil, and added more garlic,� she wrote. 1

â „4 cup Canola oil


⠄2 tablespoon dried rosemary, thyme, and basil 1 ⠄2 oz. sun dried tomatoes softened in five tablespoons boiling water for five minutes (see tip below) 1 teaspoon chopped garlic 1 tablespoon salt 11⠄2 tablespoons tomato paste 1 ⠄2 teaspoon pepper 1 tablespoon parsley 31⠄4 cups olive oil In saucepan, bring oil and herbs to a simmer. Lower heat and simmer three minutes, then strain oil and discard herbs. Add tomatoes, garlic, tomato paste, salt and pepper to Canola oil. PurÊe 15 seconds. Add parsley and olive oil, blend additional five seconds. Tip from Rita’s kitchen: A half an ounce equals a tablespoon.

black bean soup. When I returned to Cinci, I could never find black bean soup at any local restaurant, Recently found it at Panera’s and it is comparable to what I have come to love. “It’s like the one I make – minus the sherry addition. It’s the sherry addition, dollop of sour cream on top and a twist of lemon on top of the sour cream which is the final touch that makes this soup outstanding.� 4 cans (15 oz. each) black beans 3 slices, rough chopped bacon, sliced – DO NOT COOK 1 tablespoon olive oil 12 oz. beer 1 ⠄2 cup water 1 tablespoon dry sherry 3 ⠄4 cup diced onions 1 ⠄2 cup green peppers, diced 2 tablespoons garlic, diced 1 ⠄4 teaspoon cumin 2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce To taste - Adobe seasoning, salt and pepper

Heat oil in a pot on medium heat. Add chopped bacon and sautĂŠ for 1 minute. Add peppers, onions and garlic. SautĂŠ for approximately two minutes. Do not let garlic brown or burn. Add beer and Tabasco sauce and bring to a boil. Add three cans beans with their juice and bring back to a boil. Add cumin. Using a kitchen blender, puree the soup until smooth. (Will probably have to do this in batches). Add remaining 1 can beans and bring back to boil. Add sherry and season to taste with salt and pepper, and Adobe seasoning if desired. Simmer a little while so soup will cook down some. When warming up, add water to your preference. Serve hot with a dollop of sour cream on top, topped with a lemon twist.

Volunteer work helps BLOC By Melisa Cole

Even during an economic crisis, some companies are still able to give back to the community. On Aug. 11, Doug Corn presented Dwight Young, founder of BLOC (Believing and Living One Christ) Ministries, with a check for $10,000 on behalf of Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co. “I’m so appreciative that Northwestern Mutual appreciates and honors the work of its employees and shows it by giving money away,” Corn said. Corn was awarded the money in July after being nominated for his volunteer work. He first started working with BLOC 10 years ago and has been on its board since. “I’m so happy for BLOC. They can really use the money. It gets me excited,” Corn said. Corn’s main duty with BLOC is to help raise money for the organization. A lot of this is done through his clientele with Northwest Mutual. He was selected as one of 25 agents out of 10,000 throughout the country to receive the award. Every year a committee from Northwest Mutual chooses the agents they think are

The organization seeks to help children in the community that have a struggling family structure. “$10,000 will have an unbelievable amount of impact. This grant from Northwestern Mutual will help us take care of our entire clientele, about 1,500 people, for at least a month,” said Young. BLOC provides services such as counseling, tutoring, mentoring, and prayer groups to junior high and high school aged students. The organization purchases dilapidated corners of the community and turns them into BLOC houses which serve as an alternative to keep teenagers off

the streets. “BLOC is always looking for funds. They are very appreciative. It’s so hard to fundraise in an economic downturn,” Corn said. BLOC has four locations on the West Side – Price Hill, Westwood, Harrison, and Cleves. The organization plans to organize a father-daughter weekend camping trip. The trip will be the first time many of the dads have been away with their daughters. “This trip will really help strengthen the relationships for many dads with their daughters,” Corn said. The money donated by Northwestern Mutual will help BLOC continue their mission of uniting the community and strengthening families.
