Districts pleased with grades

Schools, students evaluated the same By Kurt Backscheider

The state is changing how it evaluates and communicates the academic performance of its schools and districts, and the Ohio Department of Education recently released the first report cards using the new sys-

tem. Schools and districts now receive letter grades on several measures – in the same way a student receives grades for class- Bohannon es – instead of earning labels such as “Excellent” or “Effective.” The new report card will be phased in over several years

starting this year, and eventually districts will receive an overall grade. Schools and districts were graded on nine measures: stanYohey dards met; performance index; overall valueadded, which measures whether


Oak Hills received the following grades on the state report card: » performance index, B; » state indicators met, A; » annual measurable objectives, C; » overall value-added, B; » four-year graduation rate, B; » five-year graduation rate, A.

DELHI TWP. — Kalie Kaimann could very well be on her way to becoming a big star. The 16-year-old Delhi Township resident, a junior at Seton High School, has been performing throughout the Tristate since she was 8 years old, and she was recently named the Cincinnati winner in the National Singing Star Competition. “My heart just dropped,” she said about hearing her named called as the winner of the contest, which took place Aug. 27 at the Loveland Stage Company. “It was so exciting. I enjoy performing and I do it because I love it, but it’s always nice to be appreciated for your talents.” Winning the local contest qualifies her to compete for the national title, Kaimann and she also won $500 and free studio time to record a demo at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Kaimann said the National Singing Star Competition is hosting contests in 26 cities around the country and one neat aspect of the competition is that it partners with the children’s hospital in every city. In addition to judges scoring contestants on vocal ability, she said the audience also chooses their favorite. Audience members cast their votes by donating money and all the donations go to the local hospital. Kalie won both the judge’s trophy and the people’s choice trophy, raising more than $500 for Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. “That was really awesome,” said her mother, Victoria Kaimann. “I think it’s great they support the children’s hospital in each city.” When she isn’t busy with school work or appearing in shows at Seton, Kalie studies voice at the Musical Arts Center in Hyde Park and performs as princesses and oth-

DELHI TWP. — Don Taylor is keeping alive a barber shop tradition spanning more than four decades. “I feel very lucky to be here,” he said. The barber and West Side native is the new owner of Bob’s Barber & Styling Shop at the corner of Devils Backbone and Rapid Run Road in Delhi Township. Taylor, an Elder High School alumnus who lives in Green Township, took over the shop and is continuing the legacy of the shop’s founder Bob Faecher, who died in July after battling cancer. “People really loved Bob,” he said. “A lot of his clients still come in, and the people who work around here all have good stories to tell about him.” Taylor, who became a barber two years ago after he was laid off from his job in construction equipment sales, said his brother is good friends with Faecher’s son, Bobby. When Mr. Faecher got sick, Taylor said Bobby asked him if he was interested in buying his father’s shop and keeping it open. Taylor was working for Tom Wernke in his Bridgetown barber shop at the time, and said he couldn’t pass up the chance to strike out on his own. “Tom Wernke taught me the trade and what being a barber is all about. I was ready to open my own shop,” he said. “This is something new to me, but it worked out.” As a tribute to Faecher, Taylor is keeping the name of the shop the same, along with everything inside the 43-year-old shop. “I’m not going to change anything,” he said. “I’m blessed his family came to me and gave me the opportunity to start my own shop. I owe them.” Barbara Faecher, Bob’s widow, said she thinks Taylor is a nice young man and she’s glad he’s keeping the shop open. “I think it’s wonderful,” she said. “Bob was there for a long time and he had a lot of great customers. “I think Bob would be pleased, he

‘Glee,’” she said. “The song I recorded for the pilot, ‘Holy, Holy, Holy’ is available on iTunes. That’s pretty cool.” Mrs. Kaimann said she likes how the show is wholesome and faithbased. “Hopefully someone will pick it up,” she said. “I think it’s a cool concept.” In the meantime, Kalie said she plans to keep performing as much as possible. “I like the feeling when

I’m on stage. I’m in my element,” she said. “It’s my passion and I like to do it whenever I can.” Mrs. Kaimann said her daughter never ceases to amaze her. “I’m the proudest mom on the planet,” she said. “She amazes me, and what’s even better is how she remains grounded, appreciative of her talents and giving. We thank God for blessing her with all of that.”

would have liked the fact that his shop is still there,” she said. Taylor said he often stopped in neighborhood barber shops to get the scoop on area contractors when he drove around the Tristate for his construction sales job, and he al-

ways liked the camaraderie among the barbers and customers. “I used to tell my wife that if I ever got laid off I was going to become a barber,” he said. His prognostication came true, and he said he received his barber license in 2011. He’s been cutting hair ever since and he couldn’t be happier. “I genuinely like people and talking to people. It’s fun,” Taylor said. “I love to laugh and I enjoy the rapport you build with people.” Running his own shop has been great so far, and he plans to continue Faecher’s legacy. “I’m going to be doing this for a good 20 to 25 years,” he said.

She’s filmed a television pilot called “Divine Will,” a faith-based show hoping to be picked up by a network and air in the coming months. “The show is described as ‘7th Heaven’ meets

Grades Continued from Page A1

students in grades 4-8 exceeded, met or learned below what was expected in reading and math; gifted student value-added; lowest 20 percent in achievement value-added; students with disabilities value-added; and four- and five-year graduation rates. The ninth area is Annual Measurable Objective, which replaces the Adequate Yearly Progress measure and makes sure all students are succeeding regardless of race, income, culture or disability. Oak Hills Local School District Superintendent Todd Yohey said while there is still confusion about how grades are calculated and the reliability of the measurements, the district supports higher accountability measurements that are fair and lead to better instruction and higher achievement. Oak Hills received the following grades: performance index, B; state indicators met, A; annual measurable objectives, C; overall value-added, B; four-year graduation rate, B; five-year graduation rate, A. Yohey said he is pleased with the district’s grades in some areas, and displeased in some areas. “As we have for more than a decade, we met all state indicators. I was also pleased to see that our grade for value-added scores for students with disabilities is an A,” he said. “Regardless of grades on the state report card, we are always analyzing student data to inform decisions regarding improvement. We have now implemented a better student data system that will allow teachers to look at student data on a regular basis to improve instruction.” In addition to the state report card, he said Oak Hills is one of 10 area districts to release its own Quality Profile report, available at The report helps characterize the overall educational value of public education

beyond standardized testing. The content is based on the 10 categories of academics, arts, commitment to improvement, digital learning, fiscal stewardship, parent and community involvement, staff leadership, student activities, student leadership and student services. “We are very excited to provide this expansive report to our communities,” Yohey said. “As a group of school districts, we each surveyed our communities to discover what metrics people use to judge the quality of their own school district. These reports will inform stakeholders on those metrics. This is not just a report on what we are doing well. We are also reporting on areas that need improvement.” Three Rivers Local School District Superintendent Rhonda Bohannon said she is pleased with the district’s grades, especially considering this is the first year for the new evaluation system. “Just like everyone else, I wish we would have earned straight As in everything, but when I did a comparison I think we fared pretty well,” she said. “I’m really proud of our teachers, students and community.” Here’s how Three Rivers graded: performance index, B; state indicators met, A; annual measurable objectives, C; overall value-added, A; four-year graduation rate, A; fiveyear graduation rate, A. Bohannon said the district’s low grades were in the areas of gifted student value-added, lowest 20 percent in achievement value-added and students with disabilities valueadded. Three Rivers received C’s in all three areas, and she said the district anticipated lower scores because those are the hardest subgroups in which to help gain more than a year’s worth of improvement. “Overall I’m very pleased,” she said. “If the challenge is out there and this is what we need to do as a school district, then our goal will be to make sure we bring home all As.”

Society seeks former Camp Sherwood campers By Kurt Backscheider

The Delhi Historical Society is looking for anyone who attended Camp Sherwood on Overhill Lane in the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s. Boys who attended the day camp run by Alan Kindschy made pavers featuring their footprints and names, and the historical society is working with Ethel “Pet” Schroeder to give the pavers to those who made them. KURT BACKSCHEIDER/THE

DELHI TWP. — The Delhi Historical Society is putting out the call to anyone who attended Camp Sherwood on Overhill Lane. The camp for boys ages 6 to 13 was operated for roughly 25 years by Alan Kindschy, who was a coach and athletic director at Hughes High School and founded the camp on his 28-acre property off Foley Road. “Mr. Kindschy and his wife never had any children,” said Peg Schmidt, archivist for the historical society. “So, they turned their property into a day camp for young boys, and they ran the camp from the 1940s to the 1960s.” Schmidt said the historical society was unaware Camp Sherwood, also known as Kindschy Camp, even existed, but their interest in it was sparked a few months ago when Dr. Martin Brueggemann, who grew up in Westwood and attended the camp and served as a camp counselor there, stopped by the society. Schmidt said Brueggemann brought with him a concrete paver with his name and footprints on it. He made the paver at the camp in the 1950s, and had retrieved it from Kindschy’s old property. “When the kids were at the camp they would put their feet in a paver and then write their name on it,” Schmidt said. She said Brueggemann, while exploring the property where he spent


much of his youth, saw there were about 100 other pavers still on the grounds. Those grounds now belong to Ethel “Pet”

Schroeder, who lives in Alan and Gertrude Kindschy’s old home. Schroeder said Kindschy made a walkway with all the pavers, and for years she said her late

husband talked about tracking down the men who made the pavers as boys and arranging some kind of reunion, but never got around to doing it. Over the years, some of the names and footprints on the square pavers deteriorated, but Schroeder said her husband had stacked the ones in good condition in their garage. When Brueggemann paid her a visit and found his paver, she decided it was time to finally do something with them. “I would like for the people who made them to have them,” Schroeder said.

“It is a little piece of history.” This summer, Schmidt said a group of students who visited the College of Mount St. Joseph as part of a national Catholic volunteer group called Alive in Me helped dig up some of the pavers, clean them off and decipher the names on them.

She said 85 pavers have been identified. “We think it’s appropriate to find the owners of the pavers and give them back,” she said. Anyone who attended the camp, or has information about it, can contact the historical society at or call 451-4313.

Two new officers on beat in Green Twp. By Kurt Backscheider


GREEN TWP. — The township police department is back to a full complement of officers. The township has hired two new police officers in recent months, bringing its full-time staff back to 33 officers. Green Township Police Chief Bart West said officers Keith Davis and Anthony Leidenbor were brought on to the force to replace two officers who retired in early 2013. “We do a thorough screening process and they both scored high on the written test and in the oral interview,” West said. Both officers were also put through a background check, a polygraph test and a psychological profile, and West said they also performed well during a second round of interviews and a physical exam. “We’re real happy to have them on board,” he said. Davis joined the department in late May and Leidenbor started Aug. 10. Before coming to Green Township, Davis, a Colerain Township resident, worked as a special deputy for the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office. He has a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Northern Kentucky University. He said becoming a po-

lice officer has always been his career goal. “It’s a way to give back to the community and serve those who need help,” Davis said. He is wrapping up his three-month field training period, and West said he’s doing really well. Davis said he’s grateful for the opportunity to work for Green Township. “They are a great department and everyone here has been really helpful,” he said. “It’s super exciting to get the job here.” Leidenbor is just beginning his three-month training period. A Springfield Township resident finishing his degree in police sciences at the University of Cincinnati, he worked as a part-time firefighter and medic for Forest Park and Mariemont, as

well as a part-time police officer with North College Hill before being hired by Green Township. He’s also a search and rescue canine officer for Greenhills, a position he will continue serving. Leidenbor said he loves being a police officer. “It’s fun getting out there to help people and stop all the bad things from going on,” he said. Like Davis, he said he was ecstatic the township made his career goal a reality. “This is a really exciting opportunity I’ve been trying to get for many years,” Leidenbor said. “I’m really excited to get started with Green Township. It’s a huge opportunity with a great department.” Both officers earn a starting salary of $26.19 per hour.

West Siders gather for Harvest Home Parade By Kurt Backscheider

CHEVIOT — Thousands of people lined Harrison Avenue and North Bend Road to take in the 56th annual Harvest Home Parade. Presented by the Cheviot-Westwood Kiwanis Club, the popular West Side tradition ushered in the 154th annual Harvest Home Fair. Ten parade divisions featuring high school marching bands, fire and police departments, dance teams, Boy Scout and Girl Scout groups, military veterans, cheerleading squads, community organizations, neighborhood businesses and, of course, politicians marched their way through the heart of Cheviot. And no Harvest Home Parade would be com-

plete without the Syrian Shriners thrilling children along the parade route by driving their mini cars dangerously close to the curbs. The theme for this year’s parade and fair was the “Spirit of Our 76,” a nod to the Kiwanis Club’s 76th anniversary and a play on the “Spirit of ‘76” phrase commemorating the nation’s independence. Dwight Young, a Kiwanis Club member and founder of BLOC Ministries, served as this year’s grand marshal. “People really love the parade,” said Dave Backer, a Kiwanis Club member who has been chairing the parade for nearly two decades. “I think it’s tradition.” » Parade gallery – See more photos from the parade at Cheviot.

Mount St. Joe students learn about service at UN visit

Mixing classroom and real world experience, a group of students and professors from the College of Mount St. Joseph recently went to New York City where they met with United Nations representatives, and participated in International Youth Day with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. The trip marks the sixth year that Mount students and faculty have had the opportunity to learn more about eight UN development goals to bring more awareness and support for global issues, including universal primary education, maternal health and reducing poverty. “This trip is an excellent way

for our students to have international experience and to become aware of how our actions have an impact on the rest of the world,” said Jim Bodle, professor of psychology and honors program director at the Mount. Mount student Samantha Buschle, a senior English major from Cheviot, said she hopes to use what she learned about some of the development goals into her future career as a teacher. “I want to put some of those goals into action within my classroom,” she said. “Things like making sure my students have a lunch every day and that all boys and girls are treated

equally. Even if I cannot make a worldwide difference, I can make a difference within the school that I teach.” This year’s trip marked the first time Mount students were able to celebrate International Youth Day at the UN. “Celebrating the day gave us an opportunity to hear about primary issues countries such as India, Lebanon and Niger are experiencing, and how the UN is helping assist children in those countries,” said Sara Vice, a psychology major from Glendale. English professor Elizabeth Bookser Barkley has been coleading the group with Bodle since the Mount’s program be-

gan. “Over the fall semester, students will meet a series of local guests committed to the UN Development goals on issues such as the empowerment of women, international food programs and environmental sustainability. The students will also take part in service learning opportunities that allow them to see the impact of their work.” The group of Mount students ranged from sophomores to seniors with a variety of undergraduate fields of study. Each student was able to apply for a scholarship offered through the Mount’s Sister Francis Marie Thrailkill Cultural and Service Immersion Fund.

Operation School Bell prepares students for school It’s back to school time and Operation School Bell, a signature program of Assistance League of Greater Cincinnati, has an average of 55 students in need, kindergarten through fifth-grades, arriving daily to be fitted for new school uniforms, shoes and additional basic and necessary clothing items. Many parents could not imagine sending their children off to school with ill-fitting clothes, shoes or one daily outfit for the entire year, yet more than 1,800 students annually walk through the doors of Assistance League to be fitted, and this doesn’t even begin to cover the need in area schools. Imagine being in a lottery in hopes of getting a new uniform for school. Currently 90 volunteer members belonging to an

This number indicates that 48 percent of Cincinnati children are living in poverty as tallied by The National Center for Children and leads to 40.4 percent of students in Ohio receiving subsidized lunch, an increase from 32 percent in 2009 from the latest figures of the Department of Education, 2010. Cincinnati Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld, in his capacity of as-

sistant director of the non-profit Community Learning Institute, has said that, “Children living in poverty today are our future coworkers, employees and voters. The children who aren’t given the tools to succeed early in childhood, the less productive, qualified and healthy they will be as adults.” It takes an average of $78 to dress one child for Operation School Bell, which runs from the end of August through midOctober each year. Assistance League of Greater Cincinnati is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) philanthropic organization “dedicated to meeting the critical needs of children and adults by identifying, developing, implementing and funding ongoing community programs.” In 2012 the organization won

the Better Business Bureau’s coveted Torch Award and is celebrating 15 years of program services to the greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky region while serving 18 hospitals, six women’s shelters inclusive of the YWCA, 35 public and parochial schools and five colleges. This collaboration and support ensures that the Assistance League of Greater Cincinnati is fulfilling gap needs in accordance with our Mission through its five programs: Operation School Bell, Trauma Care, New Beginnings, College Starter Kits and College Scholarship(s).

Students, parents and staff from the Three Rivers Local School District joined Cincinnati Bengals executives and players on Aug. 30 to announce the receipt of a $200,000 grant that will help to build a new football field at the new Three Rivers School. The announcement occurred prior to the kickoff of the Taylor-Lawrenceburg football game at the Taylor High School football field at 36 E. Harrison Ave. in North Bend. Cincinnati Bengals executive vice president Katie Blackburn, director of development Bob Bedinghaus, representatives of LISC, Three Rivers’ officials as well as representatives of the Three Rivers “Fields of Dreams” campaign, will all be on hand to celebrate the announcement. The Bengals, the NFL, and the Local Initiatives Support Corp. will provide the district with a $200,000 grant for the project, which includes installation of a synthetic playing surface on the field, site of nearly all of the district’s youth athletic events. “We are very excited to play a role in this project. Several years ago, Three Rivers Schools embarked on a bold vision and together with the Fields of Dreams campaign, they have brought to this community something special,” Blackburn said. The new field will allow expanded usage for all school football teams, all school soccer teams and also allow the high school band more practice time on the competition field. Additionally, the school will use the field as part of its physical education curriculum, as well as provide space for community youth football, cheerleading, and soccer programs. The cost of the project will be paid for entirely by private funds. The school district’s administration, staff, booster organizations, and community leaders have formed a “Fields of Dreams” campaign to privately raise money for the sports complex. The campaign has already raised $360,000 to go toward the remaining costs of installing the synthetic turf. The field construction is expected to start by the spring of 2014. “What a great day for Three Rivers! What a gift. We would like to thank the NFL, the Bengals, and LISC for this grant. With the help of this NFL grant and Fields of Dreams donations, our community can build a world-class stadium at the Three Rivers Educational Campus. When you dream big, see what can happen,” Three Rivers Superintendent Rhonda Bohannon said. The NFL Grassroots Program – a partnership between the NFL Foundation (formerly the NFL Youth Football Fund) and LISC, the nation’s leading community development support corporation – has resulted in the construction or renovation of 170 football fields nationwide in the past decade. Fields are newly built or significantly renovated, with improvements such as irrigation systems, lights, bleachers, scoreboards, goal posts and turf. Grassroots grants are issued once established funding thresholds are reached for each project.

Elder’s Schroer sizzles on field He makes most of the golden opportunities By Tom Skeen

PRICE HILL — Benjamin Franklin

once said, “to succeed, jump as quickly at opportunities as you do at conclusions.” When opportunity presented itself in 2012 for Elder running back Chris Schroer, he jumped at it like nobody else. After two quarterbacks went down to injury and Elder’s No. 1 running back took over Schroer under center, Schroer took over as the Panthers’ top back. All he did was carry the ball 30 times for more than 140 yards in a 17-13 win over eventual state champion Moeller. The position was his for good, helping the Panthers win five of their final six games and chalking up more than 1,000 yards in those games. “That line was really good. … I got an

LOOKING AHEAD: What: Elder vs. Francis Howell, Mo., football game When: 7 p.m., Friday, Sept. 13 Where: Elder High School, 3900 Vincent Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45205 Fun fact: The Panthers were originally scheduled to play St. Peter’s Prep Marauders of Jersey City, N.J. in week three, but the Vikings of Francis Howell replaced them on the schedule. Francis Howell made the school’s first appearance in the Missouri Class 6 state championship last season, losing 42-3. It was the Vikings’ second consecutive trip to the state final four.

opportunity to play and show what I can do,” Schroer said of his success in 2012. What may be most impressive is how many times the senior carried the ball over the final six games. He averaged 31.5 carries per game, including an astounding 45 in a win over Highlands. It has been more of the same in 2013 as Schroer lugged the ball 34 times for 182 yards and a score in a season-opening win over Middletown Aug. 29.

“… Sometimes there’s bumps and bruises, but surprisingly when I carried it 45 times against Highlands, it wasn’t that sore,” the senior said of his body. “It just depends on where you get hit.” The man known as “Sizzle” to his teammates (an eighth-grade nickname that has stuck with him) is mentioned in the same breathe with former Elder greats Bradley Glatthaar and Kyle Koester, but coach Doug Ramsey believes “Sizzle” has the chance to be the best. “He’s a leader,” the coach said. “You watch him practice and the way he works and everything he does, he tries to be perfect. … It’s great when your better players are that way, your captains are that way (because) it makes all the other guys want to be that way as well.” His tough running style came to fruition in the eighth grade when his uncle told him “see one hole, make one cut and go.’” Ramsey sees those words of wisdom being put to use against every opponent. “He has a great base, lower body See ELDER, Page A9

Seton’s Frey loving life on the soccer field By Tom Skeen

PRICE HILL — Finding the back of the net has never been a problem for Seton soccer player Jessica Frey. The senior had 18 goals through her first three years with the varsity squad and already has eight in 2013 for the 4-2 Saints. “Coach (Ron Quinn) always says you have to shoot with the intent to score and that is what I

am doing,” Frey said. “I’ve always been that person that doesn’t want to let down my team so I have to do it for them.” Frey loves scoring goals, but team is what is most important to the forward and she believes the 2013 Saints have a chance to be the best the school has seen in quite some time. “I wouldn’t be able to do it without them,” she said. “I think we are all connecting really good this year, working as a team and I think that is really helping out. I

think we could be really good this year.” In Quinn’s system, Frey is on an island a lot of the time and other teams know who she is and what she is all about. That still hasn’t stopped her from scoring goals. “Against Ursuline they had three people mugging her and she still knocked one in, so she doesn’t let that affect her,” Quinn said. “I think she looks forward See SETON, Page A9

to it.” Looking forward to it is exactly the attitude Frey takes in to every game knowing the opposing teams’ game plan is focused on her . “If anything I think it pumps me up a little bit knowing that I have to work harder and I’ve got my (teammates) to back

me up,” she said. She played a big role in the Saints’ run to the regional semifinals in 2012 . With some of the leaders from that team now graduated, Frey was instrumental in carrying over the mentality from last season’s run to this season. “Last year that whole run, we were all so pumped about it,” she said. “… We didn’t really start (last season) off that way, so I think the difference this year is the mentality

we brought to the postseason, we brought to our first game (this year) and we keep carrying it on.” Most importantly Frey is part of a group that has brought Seton soccer back to prominence and it’s a feeling she wouldn’t trade for the world. “It’s probably the best experience ever,” the forward said. “It’s so amazing to be a part of something like this. I wouldn’t want to go to any other school and play soccer for them.”

Do you think the U.S. is safer now that it was 12 years ago, before the Sept. 11 attacks? What do you most remember about that day?

“No, I don't think we're safer. “We have a president who is much more interested in his personal popularity and vacations than taking care of our country. To be fair about it, I don't think he's capable of the job and doesn't have the sense to appoint people who are. “I pray that we get through the next three years without another 9-11.”


“We probably are safer than we were 12 years ago, but it's the kind of statistic that is difficult to quantify because of political bickering and ignorance of most of the public. “It's also true that many attacks may have been thwarted, but the kind of work by counter-intelligence people that prevents them is secret and unknown to most of us. That's why it's generally 'classified.' “I remember being in my classroom teaching my seventh grade a story that had Manhattan as its setting and worrying the military might shoot down the jet over Pennsylvania before it circled back around to Washington.”

“I’m a fan of the Xavier Musketeers and the Cincinnati Cyclones and when I go to games at Cintas Center and U.S. Bank Arena, I feel I have the right to yell as loud as I want as long as it is not offensive to others...that is called home court/field/ice advantage. “As I get older, I don’t get as ‘rowdy’ as I used to, but I still yell at players, coaches and of course referees, however I keep it clean with the language and by some chance if I do say one of the no no words, I apologize to those around me. "With this being said, I can’t stand it when fans around me tell me to keep it down or move because of your yelling or even look at you like you’re from Mars. “In closing, I go to sporting events to watch the game and have fun and hopefully root my team onto victory, but more importantly just to release some stress from everyday living...keep it clean...but, keep it loud!”

On Aug. 28, Delhi/Price Hill Press kindly published a guest column for me in which I invited readers to join in our evenings out for a dinner at Diane's Restaurant on Anderson Ferry and a play at the Covedale. I invited readers to in particular assist us with a ride from Diane's to the Covedale. Well, the response from readers was very gratifying. I received three responses the day after the column appeared, and I still have responses trickling in. Among the responses were three people who knew my

husband or me from the past. One gentleman who is now retired from the Kroger general office downtown at 1014 Vine St. knew my husband, Robert, who worked at Kroger general office for 42 years before retiring in April 2006. That fine gentleman said he would not only assist with rides from Diane's to the Covedale, but he would be glad to assist in other such opportunities as well. Another respondent was the chaplain at a rehabilitation center where I spent two weeks after breaking my femur last November. The first person who responded (around 8 a.m.) the

Guitarist Emmanuel opens arts society season The Greater Cincinnati Performing Arts Society (GCPAS) will present two-time Grammy nominee, Tommy Emmanuel at the McAuley Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. Sunday Sept. 15. Emmanuel will kick off the GCPAS 2013-2014 season, which is comprised of seven concerts from September through May. Tickets for the event are $35 in advance, $40 day of the show and can be purchased by going to or by calling 513-484-0157. The Greater Cincinnati Performing Arts Society is a registered non-profit charity and uses proceeds from the performances to support tuition assistance programs at Catholic elementary schools throughout Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Five dollars from each ticket can be donated to any one of 94 schools. The ESAP organization ( will match all donations making the total contribution ten dollars

per ticket. Last season GCPAS and ESAP donated nearly $10,000 to 71 schools. Tommy Emmanuel is a twotime Grammy nominee and one of Australia’s most respected musicians. The guitarist has a professional career that spans five decades and continues to intersect with some of the finest musicians throughout the world. A household name in his native Australia, Emmanuel has garnered hundreds of thousands of loyal fans worldwide. Tommy’s unique style – he calls it simply “finger style” – is akin to playing guitar the way a pianist plays piano, using all 10 fingers. Rather than using a whole band for melody, rhythm, bass, and drum parts, he plays all that – and more – on one guitar. Emmanuel’s unusual talent and life are common lore in Australia. Born into a musical family, Tommy and his older brother Phil were considered child prodigies. Tommy got his first guitar at age 4 and was taught

by his mother. He learned by ear, with no formal instruction, and has never read music. By the age of 6, he was already working as a professional musi-

cian in the family band, variously named The Emmanuel Quartet, The Midget Surfaries and The Trailblazers. Tommy played rhythm guitar and his older brother Phil played lead, along with their brother Chris on drums and sister Virginia on slide guitar. The Emmanuel siblings earned the family’s sole income for several years. Emmanuel doesn’t remember such responsibility as a hardship. “I’ve spent all my life from the age of four playing music and entertaining people. I never wanted to do anything else,” he said. By age 10, Emmanuel had played his way across Australia. In 1962, Tommy heard Nashville guitarist Chet Atkins’ music for the first time and was riveted by the complexity of Atkins’ solo sound. He spent hours trying to figure out the “fingerpicking” style and gobbled up each of the American star’s albums as they came out. Shortly after his father’s death of a

heart attack in 1966, Emmanuel even wrote Atkins a letter and, to his surprise, the famous artist and producer wrote him back. Atkins would grow to become Emmanuel’s mentor and primary influence, but it would be another 15 years before the two would finally meet in person. In 1980 Emmanuel made a trip to the United States and finally met and got to play with his hero, Chet Atkins, in Nashville. In all, Emmanuel’s catalog includes more than 20 musical recordings running the gamut of solos, duets, ensembles, cover tunes, originals, both electric and acoustic guitar. He has made four live performance DVDs, three instructional DVDs, and regularly teaches master classes on the road. At 54, performing live is more important to him than ever and he tours constantly, playing more than 300 concerts a year for the last five years.

Cake recipe ushers in apple season

Every cloud has a silver lining. There’s a reason for everything. Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional. Our family friend, Ruth Ann Ashburn, could have quoted these sayings after a storm wrecked havoc with two of her favorite trees: A maple she raised from a sapling and the tallest wild cherry Rita tree I’ve Heikenfeld ever seen. My husRITA’S KITCHEN band, Frank, and I went over to help. Frank brought his saw and tackled the smaller limbs. The professionals came in for the rest. The silver lining here is we now have a good amount of wood aging for next year. The storm also knocked a lot of our apples off our trees, so I had to use the fallen ones up. Granddaughter Eva and I made applesauce for her little sister, Emerson. She washed the apples and I chunked them up for the slow cooker. I also dehydrated some apples and have apple leather/rollups drying in the sun. Check my blog for those recipes plus photos.

opaque in center. Use an ovenproof pan and melt the butter in it. Remove fish with slotted spoon and place in a single layer in prepared pan. Sprinkle fish with paprika and spoon butter over fish. Broil 3 to 5 inches from heat source for about 5 minutes, spooning butter over fish once.

Roasted smashed potato cakes

For Susan B., an Eastside reader, who ate these at a restaurant. “They were seasoned with just salt and pepper, and garnished with chives,” she said. About 2 pounds small or baby potatoes (I used my little garden potatoes) Olive oil Salt and pepper to taste Onion chives Sour cream (optional)

Cook potatoes and drain. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Brush baking sheet with oil and heat in oven for 5 minutes. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, gently flatten and brush with oil, and add seasonings. Roast about 15 minutes or so. Turn over and roast until golden, another 15 minutes or so. Garnish with chives and side of sour cream.

I knew I could count on you! A reader who had lost her recipe and was hoping beyond all hope that I could help find it requested this. “I’ve made this quite a bit although not recently. This recipe is probably at least 20 years old. Since I dusted this off, I think I will fix it again soon,” Kathy said.

Golf outing supports reading programs The Literacy Network hosted its sixth annual Sunset and Moonlight Golf Outing in August at Delhi Hills Par 3. The event raised $6,000 in support of the non-profit’s adult and children’s reading programs. For the first time the outing offered Sunset and Moonlight tee times, with 17 foursomes participating in a evening. The course was glowing with golf balls and the love of literacy, as Delhi Par 3 celebrates its 55th year of business. Throughout the night, there were raffle tickets sold, split-the-pot, and a grill-out for the players to enjoy. Donated prizes included a football signed by the Cincinnati Bengals’ Receiver AJ Green, baseball signed by Cincinnati Reds’ Jay Bruce, Reds tickets, and many more! The highlight of the event was when adult literacy student, Djime Cissoko, silenced the crowd as he spoke to them about what the program means to him and how thankful he was for the golfer’s support. Cissoko is in a class at the Literacy Network that utilizes Orton-Gillingham multi-sensory instruction to help adults who read below a fourth-grade level. In 2012, the Adult Basic Reading Program served 76 Greater Cincinnati adults in five classes. “I came to find help with my reading and because of this class, I learned to read. I still have a lot more work to do and further to go, but I plan to keep working and keep go-

It is nice to share with them first-hand how much their participation, time, and support means to our students and show them the lives they touch.” After a two-hole tie breaker, Jerry and Amy Luebbers and Tom and Stephanie Schiller won the sunset outing. Tim and Eileen Borrows and Lauren and Adam Boettcher won the challenging moonlight outing! The event was successful thanks to the golfers, Delhi Par 3 staff and the sponsors: Ohio National Financial Services, Protective Life Insurance, CocaCola, Graydon Head, Plante Moran, Price Hill Chili Family Restaurant, and Mike & Gina Fieler.

Novices join Sisters of Charity Two will live at Bayley House

Members of the Sisters of Charity Community welcomed Andrea Koverman and Tracy Kemme into the canonical novitiate during a ceremony June 26 in the Immaculate Conception Chapel at the Mount St. Joseph Motherhouse. The purpose of the oneyear canonical novitiate is to enable both women to

learn more about religious life, to deepen their connection to the Congregation’s roots and history, and to develop an integrated apostolic spirituality. Koverman grew up in Centerville. Her childhood parish is St. Francis of Assisi. She graduated from Archbishop Alter High School in Kettering, and majored in special education through Miami University. Following graduation she moved to Beaufort, S.C., to begin 20-plus years teaching in the coastal island communities. She holds two master’s degrees, one in curriculum and another in administration. Koverman comes from a long line of Sisters of Charity: greataunts Mary Walburga and Mary Naomi; aunt Mary Joseph; and cousin Kateri Maureen – all Kovermans. Kemme grew up in Fairfield and graduated from Roger Bacon High School. Her childhood parish is St. John Neumann. She earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology and Spanish from the University of Dayton. She served two years with

standards. The novices will be living in community at Bayley House near the Mount St. Joseph Motherhouse. Sister Donna Steffen will be the director of Novices and has developed their program for the canonical year.
