The Price Hill Historical Society has organized an afternoon of tea and treats in memory of one of the society’s founding members. The group’s upcoming “Tea on the Hill” fundraiser is dedicated to Thomas McGraw, who helped establish the society and served as its coordinator from 2004 to 2005. “We’re doing this for Tom,” said Joyce Meyer, a society board member planning the tea event. “He was quite a character. He owned the St. Lawrence Floral Shop. “This tea was actually his idea, but unfortunately he passed away in March before we could host it,” Meyer said. She said the tea party, set for 12:30-2:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 19, at the society headquarters, 3640 Warsaw Ave., is a fundraiser for the organization. The event will be a traditional tea party complete with a variety of teas, scones, quiches and savory sandwiches, she said.


Price Hill Historical Society member Flo Sparks looks for a recipe in one of the cookbooks the society has stored in its museum. The organization has about 900 cookbooks, and will be selling them at the upcoming “Tea on the Hill” fundraiser.

A group of students from Seton High School will help serve guests, and they’ll be adorned in vintage waitress aprons, Meyer said. Tables in the historical society are going to be covered with lace tablecloths, and tea will be served in a collection of antique and sterling silver teapots and cups, she said. “It’s going to be very nice,” she said. Prize giveaways will include a teapot, greeting cards, jewelry and cookbooks. There will also be a “split-the-teapot” raffle, she said. Meyer said the society has roughly 900 cookbooks on display throughout the museum, and the books will be available for purchase at the tea party as an additional fundraiser for the group. “We have every cookbook you can imagine,” she said. Anyone who would like to attend the tea is welcome, and those who have been reminiscing about a long lost recipe may be able to find it in one of the cookbooks. “Tea on the Hill” is $12 per person.

Seton students learn survival skills By Kurt Backscheider

Seton High School students took to the great outdoors for interactive lessons coinciding with their summer reading project. Students spent their English period outside in the school’s back yard Thursday, Sept. 9, simulating survival activities found in the novel “The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins. Representatives from the Hamilton County Park District showed students primitive fire starting methods, art students painted camouflage on the faces of their peers and students did their best to catch fish that were swimming in a portable fish tank stocked with 402 bluegill. “This is the culminating activity for our all-school read,” said Anna Downey, chair of Seton’s English department. “We wanted to end it with a fun day. “All of the characters in the book deal with survival, and the ultimate goal is to connect the students with the book,” she said. Downey said the hands-on survival simulations followed two weeks worth of activities, book discussions and presentations students did in connection with their summer reading project. Seton freshman Quinn Scheiner, of Delhi Township, said having students take part in the survival activities was a great idea. “It helped to get you to think about ‘The Hunger Games’ and what it was like in the arena (a setting of the novel),” she said. “We can get a better grasp of it.” Mariah Becker, a junior from Cleves, said she thought the survival simulations the English department set up were creative and helped the students relate to the book. “We’re doing all of the activities they did in the book,” she said. “You get an understanding of the hardships the characters faced.” Principal Donna Brigger said

This past summer the entire Seton student body read “The Hunger Games.” this summer’s school-wide reading project brought students of every grade level together to discuss and reflect upon the themes of the popular novel. She said teachers also collaborated in planning lessons integrating technology, art, science, read-

ing, writing and religion. “This was a meaningful and engaging way to begin the school year and motivate all of the students,” Brigger said. Downey said the survival activities exposed the students to the outdoors in an urban setting

while enhancing their understanding of the book. “I’m hoping the students realize what they are capable of doing in nature and that they appreciate it,” she said.

4991 Cleves-Warsaw (Near Glenway)


Funeral services were last weekend for Devar Johnson, 8, who died after being hit while walking home from school Sept. 3 in East Price Hill. The accident, which occurred near the busy intersection of Glenway and Grand avenues, remains under investigation. Neighbors said the driver, Yolanda Washington, 24, said her brakes failed. Meanwhile, Devar’s family is frustrated that he had to walk home from school at all. Budget cuts at Cincinnati Public Schools made Devar ineligible for school bus service to his home this year.

“We need to get those buses back,” said Olivia Johnson, Devar’s mother. “I know they Johnson choose what they need to cut but 8 years old, that’s too far. He’s walking across so many streets.” Cincinnati Public Schools this summer decided to expand the busing radius for elementary school students from 0.75 miles to 1 mile to save money. Service to high school students also was cut. Devar lives about 0.9 miles from the Rees E. Price Academy school where he had just started third grade, his mother said. Devar rode the bus last year, but the school notified his mother about two weeks before school started that he would not be eligible to take the bus this year. “I called the bus service. I tried to get him a bus, they said they’re sorry there was nothing they could do.” Johnson said her older son

would walk with Devar to school in the mornings and she tried to meet him in the afternoons while he was walking home or she would pick him up at his grandmother’s house, which is near the school. He was on his way to his grandmother’s house the day he died, she said. The school helped set up a fund for the family at Fifth Third Bank. Donations can be made at any branch by referencing the fund “In Benefit of Devar Johnson.” Johnson described her son as the life of the party. He was an honor roll student and an usher at church, she said. He loved going to get ice cream and playing games – especially a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle game – on his PlayStation. “Oh my God, he was very loving, extremely intelligent. Everyone who I saw said, ‘He just gave me a hug’ he loved to hug people,” she said. Devar talked about wanting to be a fencer when he grew up, or maybe a baseball player, she said. His mother last week she was getting ready to sign him

up for football this year. CPS spokeswoman Janet Walsh said last week that although there is no plan right now to change its transportation plan the district is continuing its efforts to improve walking safety for its students. It is seeking volunteers to lead “walking school buses” – where an adult volunteer walks with groups of children to and from school – particularly in heavy-traffic or highcrime areas. The district is also part of a federally-funded 18-month study that will map out the safest routes to walk to schools and suggest improvements like building new sidewalks or repairing walk signals. The district cut several crossing guard positions this year as well, but those cuts were not an issue at this location, according to the district. Johnson said her son’s school and its principal have been very helpful -setting up the fund and bringing over food and gift cards. But “nothing’s going to bring my son back,” she said.

Weekend highlights Story Woods By Mattie Waddle

Break out the hiking boots. It’s time for the Great Outdoor Weekend. The Western Wildlife Corridor is hosting an array of activities at Story Woods Park in Delhi Township at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25. There will be crafts such as bird feeder making, plaster paw print casting, and

cloth spinning and dying displays. “Matt Maley and his wife will also be giving a ethnobotany class, which explores the plants cultures use in food, clothing, medicines and things like that,” said Leesa Miller, WWC board member. Though there’ll be lots to do the most anticipated event wont take place till dusk, the at-night hike. “It’s a great opportunity

for people to experience the park in a whole new way, since the park is usually only open in the day time,” said Miller. The cost is free, but you may want to bring a little extra cash in your fanny pack. Delhi Parks will be grilling up hamburgers and hot dogs for sell. “It’s not to raise funds or anything, just for when people get hungry,” said Miller.

Civic club plans annual Ford test drive helps Dater High School blood drive tribute By Heidi Fallon

The Delhi Civic Association is hoping for folks to roll up their sleeves to help with its third annual Brian Schira Memorial Blood Drive. It will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25, at the township fire station located at 697 Neeb Road. Civic association President Kevin Kappa said that donating blood is a dual gift. “Giving the gift of life is not only a fitting tribute to Delhi and Colerain township

firefighter Brian Schira, who lost his life in the line of duty two years ago,” Kappa said. “But it’s also an excellent opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others.” Folks wanting to participate must be at least 17 years old, in good health, weigh at least 110 pounds and bring identification to donate blood. It is recommended that donors eat a good meal and drink plenty of water or caffeine-free fluids within four hours before donating. Kappa said each donor is

given a mini-physical examination including a check of the donor’s heart rate, blood pressure, pulse, iron levels and temperature. A non-fasting, total serum cholesterol level screening test is also performed. The entire donation process, including registration, examinations, blood draw, and a snack of juice and cookies lasts about 45 minutes. For more information, call the township at 9223111.

Ford Motor Company and Walt Sweeney Ford are partnering to help raise up to $6,000 in support of Dater High School as part of the Drive One 4 UR School program. Members of the local Cincinnati community will have the opportunity to raise money for Dater High School by test driving a Ford vehicle. The one-day event takes place from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 18, at the Walt Sweeney Ford, 5400 Glenway Ave. Ford Motor Co. and Walt Sweeney Ford will donate $20 to Dater High School

for every person from a unique household who test drives a 2011 Taurus, Fusion, Fiesta, or Mustang or a 2010, Flex, Edge, F150, or Escape. The school will be using the proceeds to help fund their general activities fund.

Middle school riding bikes to raise money Hate your Ugly Tub?

R e g la z e It! Ask for our Eco-Friendly 4 Hour Cure Coating!

The National Junior Honor Society at Rapid Run Middle School hopes to raise awareness and money to help the people of Tanzania with Bike-a-Thon 2010 Saturday, Sept. 25. In partnership with Village Life Outreach Project, a non-profit organization that works with several Tanzanian villages, the school hopes to top the $3,000 raised last year for education projects. Students and family members

will begin riding at 9:30 a.m. at the school, 6345 Rapid Run Road, in Delhi Township. “Through the process of planning and putting on the Bike-AThon, RRMS students will learn about students from other parts of the world. RRMS students hopefully will come to an understanding that everyone does not have a cell phone, cable TV, or even things we consider basic necessities, such as indoor plumbing and electricity,”

said school counselor John Berrens. “Various events are planned for the entire school by NJHS to promote this awareness,” he said. “Service is another important part of the NJHS mission. Both the work of sponsoring such an event, as well as participating in the Bike-A-Thon, provide an avenue of service for others. Finally, since education is our mission at RRMS, working with an organization that actively

works to promote education is a natural fit.” Team registration forms are available at Rapid Run Middle School, or online. Go to /clubs and scroll down to NJHS information. Donations payable to Village Life Outreach Project can be sent to the school, 6345 Rapid Run Road, Cincinnati, OH 45233, ATTN: NJHS Bike-a-thon.

They’re Human Too

We imagine most men of the cloth wonder at times about their adequacy - or inadequacies. Hours of preparation and prayer precede a worship service. Even so, no clergyman can strike a responsive chord to or for every one on every occasion. This is just as impossible as it is for a ball player to hit a home run every time at bat. But, when a responsive chord is struck, wouldn’t it be a good idea - at least once in a while - to write a note and say so? Remember they’re human too. . .

More than 1,000 small charities and nonprofits in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky risk losing their tax-exempt status because they haven’t filled out a postcard-sized form for the IRS. New rules require the groups to submit the forms by Oct. 15, but tens of thousands of nonprofits across the country have yet to do so and are on the verge of losing a designation crucial to their survival. Without their exemptions, nonprofits would have to pay taxes on donations they receive and donors no longer would be

Groups scramble but are in compliance

GUMP-HOLT Funeral Home You probably have noticed some people at times have peculiar ideas about clergymen. No minister, priest or rabbi is supernatural. They are human beings. The inner which beckoned them to their calling usually provides them with patience, tolerance and benevolence. But they are still human and have the same traits of curiosity and anxiety as other people.

Each event will provide support for the cause through T-shirt sales, bake sales, split the pot raffles, special decorations, and personal connections. “These games show how supportive we can be as a team and as a community,” said football player Justin Hildreth. Junior soccer player

able to write off their contributions on tax returns. The loss of the exemption would be a costly blow to American Legion posts, high school athletic boosters, garden clubs, PTAs and thousands of other small nonprofits that are most affected by the rule changes, which require groups with annual revenue under $25,000 to submit a tax form for the first time. The new filing criteria came as a surprise to the Delhi Business Association, whose members were unaware they were on the state’s list. After being contacted, association leaders started to investigate why the group had not received the information. Stephen Schott, Delhi Business Association vice president, said the group was able, within a few hours of being contacted, to get the information it needed to comply. The group decided it was a glitch in mailing address information. Another Delhi Township group on the noncompliance list, the Delhi Police Association, was determined to be nonexistent. “We looked into it and determined it was most likely a group that had organized during the levy campaign,” said Police Chief James Howarth. The Sayler Park Community Center Advisory Board and the village council were also both on the list. Terry Mongenas, center director, said she tracked down the information and was able to take care of the center’s compliance and alert the council, which also took care of the compliance issue. “If we hadn’t found out about the new rules, we risked losing all the money we make with our annual 5K run,” Mongenas said. “That is our main fundraiser for the center and would been a nightmare if we’d lost that money.” The new rules are part of the Pension Protection Act, approved by Congress in 2006, and are designed to help the government better monitor tax-exempt organizations. The law requires nonprofits to fill out a postcard-sized form that asks basic questions about a group’s mission, budget and contact information. Gannett News Service contributed to this story.

Blue-collar mentality drives Mustangs

By Tony Meale

Every so often, after his players have finished their sprinting drills at practice, Western Hills High School head football coach Paul Jenne blows his whistle and delivers the news: We’re not finished. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen. Overtime sprints. “The kids know,” Jenne said. “They understand. They get right back on the line. And there’s no complaining.” This blue-collar attitude is a big reason why Western Hills, which went 3-6 last season, is off to a 2-1 start. “Our kids have worked hard and did a real nice job over the summer,” Jenne said. “They’ve followed through on everything we asked them to do.” Western Hills opened with a 29-7 win over Richmond (Ind.) before knocking off Walnut Hills 34-28 in overtime. The extra sprinting drills probably came in handy. The Mustangs, however, lost to Roger Bacon Sept. 10. They trailed 31-0 before ultimately falling 52-21. Leading Western Hills is dual-threat sophomore quarterback Cameron Washington. In the Mustangs two wins, he threw for 247 yards and rushed for 161. “When you have a young QB doing what he’s doing, it’s a tribute to the offensive line,” Jenne said. “Our O-Line has done a very nice job.” Jenne credited senior center Jarius Cobb and Ray Kilburn, in particular. Jenne said the key to his offense is establishing a running game. Washington certainly has the ability to run, and junior tailback Dar-

Western Hills senior captain and defensive back Ivan Dunn, right, puts a lick on Roger Bacon senior wideout Gus St. Clair, who was unable to come up with the grab during a game Sept. 10. ius Baker carried 27 times for 150 yards against Richmond. “We need to play our style of football,” Jenne said. Of course, the Mustangs have also been able to throw the ball. Washington’s favorite target has been junior wide receiver Josh Smith, a Pennsylvania transfer who caught 10 balls for 216 yards and three touchdowns in Western Hills’ two wins. Against Bacon, he nabbed a 59-yard touchdown reception to stop the bleeding. “It’s hard to say (Washington and Smith) have chemistry just yet,” Jenne said. “Chemistry develops when you work hard with a player over time.” Still, the rapport is undeniable. Defensively, captains Ivan Dunn and Tyrie

Lovette have been the difference. “They’ve been very consistent,” Jenne said. “That’s why they’re our captains.” Junior defensive back Tywaunn Black, meanwhile, intercepted a pass on the 5-yard line against Walnut Hills in overtime, setting up junior running back Dion Dawson’s game-winning touchdown plunge. They travel to Shroder Sept. 18 and have a home game against Woodward Sept. 23. “We need to keep doing what we’re doing,” Jenne said. When we’re at practice, we need to work on football. When we’re in school, we need to work on school. When we’re at home, we need to spend time with our family. We need to keep our lunch-pail mentality.”

He has been working since the age of 11 to make it big in freeski. Now, Chris Laker of Delhi Township recently finished in fourth place at the Volki New Zealand Freeski Open behind the X-Game professionals on Aug. 1. Laker, who trains at Perfect North Slopes and Ohio DreamsAction Sports Camp in the summer, won the top qualifying spot, unveiling right-side double corks to complement the more common left-side double corks that are becoming a mustdo trick to advance in world-class competitions. He was successful in combining the two tricks in a single run, a progression that only began to emerge toward the end of the 2010 Northern Hemisphere season. He was accompanied in the New Zealand competition by another local skier from Perfect North Slopes, Nick Goepper, who placed fourth in the qualifier. Laker and Goepper chased defending champion and X-Games Gold Medallist Bobby Brown, who was pre-qualified. Laker and Goepper, qualified in the semi-finals advancing to the finals. Laker finished fourth in the final behind X-Games pros, Russell Henshaw, Bobby Brown, Gus Kenworthy positioning him well for the upcoming 2011 season, including the Dew Tour. Laker began skiing at age 3. At 11, he represented Perfect North Slopes ski resort at the Kids Sports Illustrated Kids Next Snow Search, where he competed in big air and almost landed his first 1080 while his binding fell off his skis. In 2006, his second year in Kids Sports Illustrated Kids Next Snow Search, he placed in the upper 25th out of about 150 kids and placed fourth in the Big Air. In 2007, he placed first in Big Air, by landing a 900, a 1,080, and a 1,260 (tail grab on all three jumps). Also, he placed first in Slope Style, third in Half Pipe, and fifth overall out of 110 kids. He went on to compete in 2007 in the Vermont Open junior division and took first in the super pipe; there isn't even a super pipe at Perfect North Slopes to train on. He also placed fourth during the Slope Style junior division. In 2007 and 2008, he competed in the U.S. Open at Keystone, Colorado and


Chris Laker of Delhi Township recently finished in fourth place at the Volki New Zealand Freeski Open behind the X-Game professionals on Aug. 1. in the Aspen Open at Aspen, Colo. During this 2009 season, Christopher won first place in the many regional competitions such as Snow Trails, Ohio rail jam and big air, Perfect North Slopes, Indiana rail jam and Snowshoe, West Virginia Open (rail jam). He also competed nationally at the DNA Evolution Rail Jam SIA Trade Show in which he took the first place in the skiing division. Next he competed in the Aspen Open, competing with 117 free riders and was the one of the youngest competitors at 15 years old and 6 foot, 1 inches in the top 10 finals, placing seventh. Laker supplements his training by jumping on a trampoline in his own backyard, in-line skating, training on the water ramps at Ohio Dreams Action Sports Camp, and competitive diving at Oak Hills High School. In his back yard he and his friends built an urban ski ramp where they drop into astro turf and then onto a rail. In the past he has trained on the water ramps at the Olympic Park in Park City, Utah. Laker and his friends shoot videos where they capture their jumps and turns on rails and big air set to music. The past three years he has been out of school for an extended period of time during skiing season so he can train and compete in Utah and Colorado. His grade school and high school allowed him to do this because he works ahead and also does his work while on the road. He even maintains good grades making high honors.

Soccer teams feed off new tradition By Tony Meale

Randall Bruegge made sure that Cincinnati Christian was on the schedule this year. The Western Hills High School head soccer coach wasn’t seeking to avenge a loss – last year’s game against Cincinnati Christian was suspended due to lightning – but rather to return the favor, one that had nothing to do with soccer. He simply wanted to feed them. “Last year, Cincinnati Christian cooked a meal for us,� Bruegge said. “They had a large area prepared after our game, and all the families had home-cooked food ready for us.� “It was really awesome,� Mustangs junior Francis Gyau said. “I wasn’t expecting anything like that after the game. Everybody was tired and we were about to go to our bus and they said, ‘Guys, come over. We have something for you.’� That something was a smorgasbord of lasagna, baked ziti, nearly a dozen crock-pot dishes and all the sides and salads you could think of. Players from both programs ate, mingled and kicked soccer balls to each other. “It’s really something we had never experienced,� Bruegge said. “We couldn’t wait to return the favor.� On Sept. 7, Western Hills got a chance to do just that.


The Western Hills High School and Cincinnati Christian soccer programs have hosted post-game dinners with each other the last two years. Pictured from left to right: Western Hills head coach Randall Bruegge, Mustangs junior Francis Gyau, Cougars sophomore Matthew Lustig and his mother, Terri Lustig. Matthew and Terri helped implement the dinner last year; Bruegge, Gyau and the rest of the Mustangs were eager to reciprocate the meal this season, which they did Sept. 7. Following a pair of varsity soccer games, both programs sat down and broke bread. Not to mention chicken barbecue sandwiches and an array of sides and desserts. “It’s wonderful to see them reciprocate like that,� Cincinnati Christian boys’ head coach Brian Nelson said. “We didn’t (cook for them) last year with any expectation of anything coming back to us. We kind of put soccer aside, and it becomes more about life and service.� Approaching Nelson with the idea last year was Terri Lustig, the mother of Cincinnati Christian sophomore Matthew Lustig. Terri’s other son, Ryan, played soccer at Cedarville University, and his team would share a meal with

select opponents. Terri thought it would be wonderful to implement at the high school level. “We’re Christians, and we believe that you should take advantage of any opportunity to show the love of Christ to anybody you come in contact with,� Terri said. “When you eat together and serve people, it breaks down a lot of walls and brings opportunities to get to know other people. I think it builds camaraderie.� Nelson loved the idea. “We thought it would be a great way to demonstrate Christ’s love, so that’s what we did,� he said. “We believe that if you are Christian, then you need to conduct yourself as one – not just talk about it.� Matthew thinks both dinners were a great suc-

cess. “Usually you just shake hands with a team after a game and that’s it,� he said. “You don’t really talk. But with the meal, you get to know them. There’s faces behind the players.� Terri was particularly impressed with the players’ desire to get behind the food tables and serve dishes to their opponents. “It’s very unique to serve your opposing team, and they did that on their own and they loved it,� she said. “You can’t mandate that. It just came from their hearts.� Gyau, who moved to the United States from Ghana last year, was eager to help return the favor. “They want to (be friends) with us,� he said, “and we should do the same.�

Watch your driving

Please, I am sending out a begging message to all drivers to be responsible and look more than twice at all that surrounds you and also make sure your vehicle is properly maintained. Our children are our most precious resource. Friday, Sept. 3, a young man age 8 was killed in Price Hill and on that same day my daughter’s friend age 15 was hit by a driver in Bridgetown and she was in the crosswalk. On Sept. 7 in Indiana a 3-year-old boy was killed in a hit and run. Just like those commercials on television that remind us to look for motorcyclist we should all be reminded to look for children walking. Many children walk home from school because

bussing has been a budget cut item, so we all need to look more than twice when operating a 3,000-pound vehicle. While my daughter’s friend survived being hit she did have leg damage and not to mention mental repercussions that remain to be seen. To the families who lost their sons, my heart breaks for you … these deaths did not need to happen. Lori Duenhoft Raceview Avenue Bridgetown

Let Covedale be Covedale

Mural’s canvas has a lot of history The Sayler Park mural was dedicated Sept. 14. The mural was a joint project between the Sayler Park Village Council, Sayler Park Arts Council and the ArtWorks of Cincinnati. The mural named “A Day in the Life of Sayler Park” was painted Betty Kamuf on the old Kroger building at 6356 Community Gracely Drive and Press guest owned by Mary columnist Cipriani. The mural scenes are examples of life in Sayler Park at different times. The historical mural is painted on a historical building. William Applegate, a descendent of a revolutionary soldier, built his general store in Delhi Village in 1878. He was the son of Israel and Mary Applegate of Green Township. In 1864 he married Kate Meyer, and had four sons; Harry, Willie, Arthur and Ward. The Applegates came to the bustling village about 1872. He started a small sore and became the postmaster of Delhi. His business thrived and he purchased land from Peter Zinn in September 1878, and built the present day three-story building at 6356 Gracely Drive. Like most businessmen of the time he used the bottom floor as a store and lived in the upper two floors. Originally there was an octagonal shaped projection out of the front,


Strassell Grocery and Meat Market had a wagon that went door to door in Sayler Park. which housed the post office and later telephone company. It was torn off in the widening of Gracely Drive in 1939. There is still a smoke house on the site used to cure meat that might have been built by a later tenant. William was politically active in the community and served as a Delhi Township Trustee in the 1890s. In 1883 John Drucker became the postmaster of Delhi. By 1899, the store was sold to Catherine Tullock. She was the second wife of Adam Tullock, who was a carpenter from Scotland and came to Home City in 1872. He had one son John who was a painter and lived on Liberty Street. John and Susan had three children – Anson, Alice and Vera. Alice and Vera worked as telephone operators at the Cincinnati and Suburban Telephone Co. at 6356 Gracely Drive in the octagon part. In the rear was the Strassell Grocery and Meat Market. Walter and Catherine Strassell lived on Linneman Road in Green Township. They started a store where Mergy’s old deli is and went door to door with a meat wagon. Dr. John Walton purchased the property from Catherine Tullock in 1907. About that time Walter Strassell moved his grocery and meat store to the rear of the telephone company and operated the store there with his sons Albert, Arthur, and Leo. I’m not sure when the store closed. In 1928 the property was leased to


Like most businessmen of the time he used the bottom floor as a store and lived in the upper two floors. Kroger. Most people remember Ida Brater who worked there. Kroger left some time after the flood. In 1944 John Walton apparently died and the property went to his two daughters Louise and Adelaide and their mother , Mary had a life estate in the property. Herbert Strassell, Walter’s grandson and his mother were operating a meat market there when river road was widened in 1939. The Strassell’s were afraid the extra traffic would make it difficult to cross the street and moved across Revere to the white building that burned down some years ago. His mother operated the store while he was in the navy in World War II. When he came back they bought the store from Edward and Catherine Zipfel. The Strassell meat market operated there until 1972, when Herbert and Betty Strassell moved to a farm in Indiana. The building was owned by Fred and Norbert Schmidt until Mary Cipriani bought the building in 1985. Betty Kamuf is a winner of Griffin Yeatman Award for Historical Preservation. She lives in Sayler Park. You can reach her at

In the sense that history shapes the future it’s good to know how Price Hill’s history influences our thinking today. Originally a haven for the upper class, many beautiful estates gave Price Hill an image of prominence. But in the late 19th century the German Catholics moving up the hill from Over-the-Rhine made Price Hill a more diverse community. And, although at the time German Catholics were the victims of social prejudice, they were welcomed and accepted in Price Hill. By 19th century standards Price Hill was a melting pot; a place that blends the ability to be yourself – whoever that may be, with being a part of a supportive community. In 1894 it was written, “Price Hill represents various nationalities and has no cliques or sets. Newcomers are impressed favorably by the hearty welcome they receive.” (”Price Hill Its Beauties And Advantages As A Place of Residence.”) With further development the mansions were demolished, and the estates subdivided, as the catholic community became the overwhelming majority. “German, Catholic, solid middle class!” became the new Price Hill identity proudly adopted by its many new residents. But as incomes rose the middle class moved westward and residents of lower incomes replaced them. And in the process a unique social order took hold; where status is described by one’s parish identity. But, in a community where “everybody knows everybody” the virtue of loyalty is admired. So, upon moving to within another parish boundary we often times remain loyal members of our “mother parish.” And today, although the catholic community

can no longer claim Price Hill as its own, we remain loyal to our Price Hill roots by attending Elder football games and by financially supporting Seton Jim Grawe and Elder and our Community mother parishes. Interestingly, Press guest community leadcolumnist ers who are struggling to improve Price Hill are seemingly pandering to our virtue of loyalty; asserting their “Price Hill Will” by asking those who live in Covedale to join the “club,” embrace the Price Hill identity, and accept the nonsensical notion that Covedale does not exist. May I suggest that we swallow that part of our Price Hill Pride that is stubborn in nature and join hands by calling upon our West Side values of common sense and inclusiveness? Why not acknowledge and celebrate the West Side story that is authentic Covedale? Why not support Covedale residents in their struggle with the city to again give Covedale separate but equal neighborhood status? Why not “strive for the higher things”? Please, welcome us and accept us for who we are: Covedalians. Only then will Price Hill’s true beauties and advantages as a place of residence re-surface to be discovered once again. If you believe that the west side’s moral compass should guide our future, then join us in saying, “Let Covedale be Covedale, so Price Hill can be Price Hill!” Jim Grawe is the co-founder of the Covedale Neighborhood Association.

She lost her vision and found new adventures Jane Strohmeier and I met around 15 years ago when Jane joined the American Council of the Blind. ACB is a national, state, and local organization of blind and sighted people working together to make a better world for us all. Our ACB members believe: “Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,” rather than “Good fences make good neighbors.” Jane enjoys playing Chopin on the piano, pieces that she learned as a child. In 1995, Jane started taking piano lessons again, learning popular songs like “Alley Cat” as well as perfecting her classical repertoire. Jane also always had an interest in

art, beginning as a child. She remembers one art teacher in college who never made one positive comment about her work. Well, I guess the joke is on that teacher. Jane has recently won five prizes for her art work. A few ACB members are owners of dogs. When Jane walks about with her dog Lex, a few observers may do their tut-tutting, “I feel sorry for people like her; she must not have much of a life. What a shame to end up like that!” However, Jane’s intended message is quite different. If one were to look closer, one would see that Jane is warm, friendly, and personable as well as being skilled in music and art. Jane is adventur-

ous and makes wise choices, a good person to know. She feels good about who she is when she walks confidently into Grace Episcopal Church or into her water aerobics class at the YMCA. Jane no longer drives a car and no longer reads sheet music, but she has made many new friends and has found new ways of enjoying her life. Jane Strohmeier has been losing her vision gradually since the 1970s as a result of macular degeneration. By 1988, she could no longer drive. At first, she felt lost and alone and stuck in her house. Then, she made a decision: she began venturing out and meeting other people whom she in the normal course of matters

would never meet. One very important person she met was George Coorey, a professional musician, who soon gave her piano lessons, and her piano repertoire took on a new sound. Neither George nor Jane could read a scrap of music, but their skill in playing and their love of music jumped over that little obstacle, and they delighted many with their performances. Jane also learned that two dimensional art was not the only kind of art. Jane took sculpture lessons at the Clovernook Center for the Blind. In October, she will travel to Louisville to display her sculpture of “Reginald,” an aristocratic giraffe and collect her prize money and award for winning

Bountiful Harvest By Kurt Backscheider

Everyone loves a parade. Especially in Cheviot. Thousands lined the streets as the annual Harvest Home Parade made its way along Harrison Avenue and North

Bend Road on Thursday, Sept. 9. Ten parade divisions of veterans’ groups, Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, marching bands, floats, local fire and police departments, dancers, gymnasts, community organizations, area sports teams and politicians ushered in 151st annual Harvest Home

Fair presented by the Kiwanis Club of Cheviot-Westwood. “Small Business Makes America Great” was the theme of this year’s parade, and John Murphy, a 32-year member of the Kiwanis Club, served as the grand marshal.

What do you call it? An affair or a betrayal? You know what a euphemism is? It’s something awful dressed up to look like something nice. It’s words in sheep’s clothing. For example, betraying the vow you made to your spouse when you were married is not called a betrayal, adultery or being unfaithful. It’s called, “extramarital sex,� “one-night stand,� “playing around� or having “an affair.� A word like affair can even have a certain sophistication about it, and not only to “Desperate Housewives.� Some studies suggest almost half of husbands are unfaithful at some point in their marriage. Women are less to be unfaithful, but researchers admit they’re not really sure about that because women are better at concealing it and are less likely to own up to it.

Why are we so blasÊ about the most sacred and serious vow we make in our lives? What are the possible motives? Some are: wanting to feel Father Lou desired or young Guntzelman or free; a narcisPerspectives sistic ego seeking grandiosity; looking for more emotional intimacy and warmth; wanting to rebel, humiliate or punish the other, or to prove you’ve still got it; seeking pleasure without personal and emotional involvement; trying to alleviate loneliness; acting out an envy which thinks every other couple is more sexually fulfilled, so why not me?

It can also be a way to deny the coming of middle age, or to regain the thrill of early romance, and so on. Author Ruth Houston says, “Women are usually looking for emotional fulfillment and men are looking for sex. Women tend to do it as a last resort after they’ve tried everything else, but their words have fallen on deaf ears.� Psychologist David Wexler says, “Men feel alive and worthy when they look into the eyes of a partner and see love, delight and respect mirrored back. A ‘broken mirror’ is a partner’s constant view.� The joining of two people in marriage is founded upon a mutual exchange of holy pledges. These are the only true vows that most people will ever make.

A vow differs from a mere promise or a resolution. A vow is not like the signing of a legal document nor is it like any other human promise. As author Mike Mason puts it, “A vow is, per se, a confession of inadequacy and an automatic calling upon the only adequacy there is, which is the mercy and power of God. “To keep a vow means not just to keep from breaking it, but rather to devote the rest of one’s life to discovering what the vow means, and to be willing to change and grow accordingly.� Marital unfaithfulness brings some temporary pleasures but also a spreading dishonesty and guilt – especially if one has thought of oneself as an honest person. “It’s awfully easy to lie when you know you are trusted implicitly – and

so very degrading,� said Laura in the movie “Brief Encounter.� Despite the casualness with which some brush off their infidelities or excuse a “casual fling,� it is deeply disturbing to the cheated-upon spouse. It means that something important is lost and gone from the marriage, perhaps forever. The trust, the love, the many dreams that were shared when the vows were first made, don’t shine as brightly anymore – and, in pain, one wonders if they ever will.

Smart idea to check out used car before buying it There are several steps to take in order to protect yourself when buying a used car. I continue to receive several complaints each month from used car buyers who complain the vehicle doesn’t work correctly and the dealer won’t do anything about it. They fail to realize often the dealer is not obligated to do so. If the vehicle is sold “As Is� it doesn’t even have to be roadworthy. Lawrence Bailey of Forest Park was looking for an older-model Mercedes Benz, saw one advertised, and went to the used car dealer offering it for sale. While taking it for a test drive he noticed several problems. “Lights on the dashboard came on. They said they would take care of those things and I could pick the car up the next day,� Bailey said.

Bailey agreed to p a y $4,300 for the vehicle and the next day drove it off the lot. On Howard Ain his way he Hey Howard! home noticed the odometer was not moving and called the dealership. “The salesman said, ‘If you give me $75 to $125, we’ll put another one in there and we just won’t charge you labor,’ � Bailey said. Bailey said he was not at all happy with that response, nor with the black paint that was washing off the back of the car with the first rain. The ad for the car said it was black, so did the key chain tag – but the sales contract said it was slate gray. It’s that slate gray color that

was now coming through under the black paint. The biggest problem for Bailey is he relied on the odometer statement he received from the dealer stating the vehicle had 158,000 miles on it. The statement failed to disclose the odometer could be wrong. No one really knows how many miles are on the car, but Bailey suspects there could be a lot more. “They have it listed as 158,413, but I later found some documents in the glove box that said it was over 200,000 miles,� Bailey said. He found that reading on a transmission repair receipt dated three years ago. In addition, there were service stickers on the inside of the front door that stated the car had been serviced long after it had traveled 158,000 miles.

“I would just like my money back and not even deal with it any further,� Bailey said. If the documents with the car are correct, the odometer has been rolled back – possibly in order to get a higher sale price. The car salesman tells me he was unaware there were any odometer problems at the time of sale. Bailey complained to the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehi-

cles and state officials at first treated it as a broken odometer. After I contacted them, and explained about the possible odometer rollback, officials have decided to take another look at the complaint. To avoid such problems, I suggest getting a Carfax report before buying a used car. Bailey said he did ask the dealer for one before he

bought the Mercedes but was told the dealer couldn’t get one. In addition, get the car checked out by an independent certified mechanic – they’ll know what items need checking.

Enjoy beginning of fall with end-of-garden soup No matter how much time I allow for cleaning the house and cooking the food when we have people over, I always wind up with more to do than I thought. And I always like to mop the kitchen floor before our guests come. My husband, Frank, thinks I’d be less stressed if I paid less attention to the floor. “No one ever looks at the floor,” he tells me. Well, that may be true, but I do and I admit I’m obsessive about it getting mopped. I wonder how many of you feel the same way?

End of garden zucchini,

corn and sausage soup

I’m still getting decent peppers the Rita from garden, Heikenfeld a l t h o u g h Rita’s kitchen with this heat and lack of rain, they are very thin-walled. I found this out when I diced a bunch of them for the freezer. But their flavor is still good, and I used two of the smaller red bell peppers for this soup. I got this recipe from my friend, Batavia reader Bert Villing, who received it from

Sue, one of our colleagues. I think Bert called it “zucchini sausage soup.” I changed the name since I made several adaptations to it. Her original recipe used 2 cups celery, 1⁄2 teaspoon each of the basil and oregano, and no chickpeas, corn or broth. Next time I’ll add a minced garlic clove or two along with the onions and celery. 1 pound Italian sausage 1 cup diced onion 1 cup diced celery or more to taste 1 large bell pepper, diced 1 teaspoon each: dry basil and oregano 28 oz. canned diced

tomatoes with juice (can also substitute 4 cups fresh) 14.5 oz. can chickpeas or canellini beans, drained Frozen corn (I used my own, about 2 cups) 3 generous cups diced squash (I used patty pan that Bert gave me) Chicken broth if necessary Parmesan cheese Salt and pepper to taste Brown sausage, drain off fat. Add onions, celery and bell pepper, and cook several minutes, until onions start to turn translucent. Add everything else but broth. Cook, covered, at a simmer for about 30 minutes until veggies are tender.

room temperature for a couple of weeks, or freeze for three months.

Close to Outback’s bleu cheese vinaigrette

The requests for this keep popping up. Now Outback, as far as I know, makes just about everything from scratch – that’s why the food is so good. I did find out (and don’t ask how!) that they use olive oil, Danish bleu cheese, vinegar, seasonings and fresh basil. This is as close as I can get to it.


Rita’s “end of garden” zucchini, corn and sausage soup. If you want, add broth and salt and pepper to taste. Serve with plenty of Parmesan.

Easy maple nut granola

I just put a chunky granola recipe in the column last week, but I had a request for a “real healthy, real easy” granola with only oats and nuts that doesn’t call for lots of oil or butter and no white sugar. Here’s one that is delicious over Greek yogurt and bananas. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Mix together: 1

⁄4 cup olive oil ⁄4 cup white wine vine-


gar Several dashes balsamic vinegar 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard 1 tablespoon sour cream or less to taste Leaves from a couple sprigs of fresh basil (go to taste and chop) Salt and pepper, to taste 1 ⁄2 cup crumbled Danish bleu or other bleu cheese plus more for garnish Candied pecans: I just toss some pecans with melted butter, a shake of cinnamon and a bit of sugar. I roast them in a 350-degree oven for about 10 minutes.

3 cups old-fashioned or quick (not instant) oatmeal 2 ⁄3 cup any chopped nut you like, or a combination of two Couple dashes salt 2 tablespoons canola 1 ⁄3 cup pure maple syrup 1 teaspoon vanilla Mix oats, nuts and salt together. Stir in oil, syrup and vanilla and mix well. Pour onto sprayed cookie sheet. Bake about 30 minutes, stirring halfway through. Let cool and store at
