St. Teresa of Avila Principal Sharon Willmes, right, shows students a baptismal candle that was put in a time capsule 25 years ago as the Rev. Tom Bolte, left, pastor of St. Teresa, reads why students chose to place the candle in the capsule in 1986.
Students and staff at St. Teresa of Avila School took a trip back in time as they celebrated the church’s 50th anniversary. While the parish has been a Price Hill fixture for nearly a century, the construction of the church didn’t begin until October 1961. As part of the anniversary celebrations, St. Teresa Principal Sharon Willmes opened a 25year-old time capsule while students looked on during a school Mass on Friday, Oct. 14. The capsule was put together and sealed away by St. Teresa students on Oct. 15, 1986, in honor of the 25th anniversary of the church construction. “I didn’t know what to expect when I opened it, but everything is in very good condition,” Willmes said. Rev. Tom Bolte, pastor of St. Teresa, said the students who created the time capsule 25 years ago placed in it symbols and items representing the principles, values and ideals they were learning in school. He said each grade placed an item in the capsule. Some of the items included a baptismal candle, a prayer book, a clerical stole used by priests and deacons, a religious workbook for families, a student handbook, a church bulletin, a school brochure and a Cincinnati Enquirer from Oct. 15, 1986. “A part of each of us is in this box,” Bolte said, as he read students a letter that was in the capsule. “These are symbols represent-

We will always carry with us the lessons we have learned at St. Teresa.” Bolte encouraged today’s students to continue the traditions of St. Teresa. Four alumnae from St. Teresa’s 1986 eighth-grade class were on hand to help open the capsule – Annie (Norris) Paschka, Kelly (Hilton) Black, Susan (Lind) Adams and Jenny (Fischer) Schroer. Paschka and Schroer said looking at the old student handbook and the book of prayers brought back fond memories of their days in grade school. “It was neat,” Paschka said. Willmes said she hopes the students gain an understanding of the great traditions that exist at St. Teresa. School leaders are talking about having this year’s students make a time capsule to be opened 25 years from now, she said. “We would like the students to start their own legacy,” she said. “They are the future of St. Teresa and it’s their turn to carry on the principles of the school.”
Kiwanis collects tabs for Children’s By Kurt Backscheider firstname.lastname@example.org
Every couple of months Ed Flick makes a trip to the Ronald McDonald House, armed with jars filled to the brim with pull tabs from aluminum cans. “I have three full jars to take up there this Thursday,” he said. Flick, a Cleves resident who belongs to the Price Hill-Western Hills Kiwanis Club, said he has been collecting tabs from aluminum cans for the Kiwanis Club for more than eight years. “We started collecting pop tabs in September 2003,” he said. “Our goal was to get 1 million. So far we have turned in 816,000 tabs.” The Kiwanis Club donates the tabs to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Cincinnati. Flick said the charity turns the tabs in for cash and uses the money to help provide families with a “home away from home” while their children are hospitalized at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. “The Ronald McDonald House has dozens of 32-gallon containers in which folks can drop off tabs,” he said. “Last year they received $12,000 from cashing in pop tabs.” As the Kiwanis Club closes in on its goal to collect 1 million tabs, Flick said his fellow club

I think I found out about it when I was up there for a visit,” he said. “When I brought the idea to the club they said, ‘Yes, We’d love to help.’” Every Tuesday the club meets, members bring in bags of pull tabs from all varieties of aluminum cans, including pop cans, beer cans, vegetable cans and sardine cans, Flick said. “Most of the members contribute,” he said. “It’s a pretty simple program and it’s an inexpensive way to help others. These pop tabs and our efforts go to a very good cause,” he said. The LaRosa’s restaurant on Boudinot Avenue in Westwood is pitching in to assist the Kiwanis Club reach its goal of 1 million tabs. LaRosa’s will have a collection jar set up in the carryout portion of the restaurant where people can donate pull tabs.

Oak Hills hosting tribute on Veterans Day By Kurt Backscheider email@example.com
Oak Hills High School is once again inviting all military veterans to be honored for their service during a Veterans Day tribute at the school. The annual commemoration will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 9, in the school gymnasium, 3200 Ebenezer Road. “We are overjoyed to have veterans from any era there, and we especially want to welcome all active duty servicemen and women,” said Oak Hills social studies teacher Shannon Murray. Each year Murray organizes the tribute with Oak Hills English teacher Donnie Becker and music technology teacher Grant Anderson. German teacher Rogar Schneider has joined the planning committee this year, and retired social studies teacher Tim Taylor is helping as well. “I don’t believe in empty holidays,” Murray said. “We get the day off for Veterans Day, and the ultimate

The ceremony runs from 8:30-9:30 a.m., and the school will provide a free City Barbeque lunch to the veterans from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Becker said in between the assembly and lunch, the veterans who attend are

it’s not Veterans Day and shake their hand and say, ‘Thank you,’” he said. “We can’t honor them enough for what they’ve done for this country.” Schneider said he volunteered to help plan this year’s tribute because he has a personal connection to the military. “I have a brother who is shipping off to the Marine Corps,” he said. Anderson, whose students create a video slide show set to music for the event each year, said it gives his students an opportunity to work on a project bigger than themselves and Oak Hills. “I think my students come to realize this event is about recognizing individuals who have sacrificed for them, and it changes the way they fundamentally view our veterans,” he said. Murray said they want to fill the gymnasium floor with as many veterans and military personnel as they can. “The main point is to make the veterans feel honored,” he said. Becker added, “These men and women in uniform stood up for us, and this is a day for the Oak Hills community to stand up for them.” Veterans and active servicemen and women who want to be a part of the program can call Schneider at 400-2897 or email him at Schneider_R@ohlsd.org.

“Our goal is to build community by providing access to healthy food, education about organic edible gardening, and to revitalize the garden’s portion of the Ohio River Valley hillside,” said Amy Stross, garden organizer. “The garden is completely donation-driven and is open to all members of the College community and residents of the Delhi Township area.” Gardeners work evenings and weekends, and receive a portion of the harvest with an option to donate excess produce to the Anderson Ferry Food Pantry. Along with the two open houses, the community gardeners will tackle projects for Make a Difference Day, 9 a.m. to noon Oct. 22. “We’ll focus on completing a wide range of projects as the garden season draws to a close,” Stross said. “Since the garden is located on the Ohio River valley hillside, there is a sensitive ecosystem requiring special care to avoid soil erosion. “Thus, many of the projects at the garden have centered around building walls and terraces to support garden work without compromising the hillside. This type of work is slow and challenging.” Anyone wanting more information about the open houses, Make a Difference Day or the hillside garden project, go to www.HillsideGardenDelhi.com or contact Stross at email@example.com.

The question of whether a recent volunteer recognition dinner was, in fact, a Delhi Township event was debated again at the Oct. 12 trustee meeting. The September recognition dinner was at Floral Paradise Gardens honoring volunteers for their work in the township’s parks. Parks and Recreation Director Sandy Monahan paid for the food, but there have been allegations park employees were working the event and being paid by the township. While she has maintained it was a private party, she did tell trustees at the meeting that she and four other park and recreation employees were on the clock.
The controversy stems from a claim that trustee candidate Marijane Klug had made a political pitch during the dinner. Klug was invited to the dinner as a member of the township’s Financial Advisory Board. Monahan said another FAB member along with trustees also were invited. Trustee Jerry Luebbers was the only trustee who attended the dinner. Klug denies she said anything political. “I told the volunteers it was their night and I told them how proud we are of our parks and all the hard work they do,” Klug said. Township firefighters raised the dinner issue at the Sept. 28 meeting. Representatives of both the part- and full-time firefighters unions were unhap-

py with Luebbers’ for yelling at Fire Chief Bill Zoz in front of firefighters about a political flyer posted in the Neeb Road fire station. Michael Thompson, parttime firefighter union officer, asked trustees how the two situations were different, claiming it was “a double standard.” After questioning Monahan, Trustees Al Duebber and Mike Davis acknowledged the dinner was a township event. Luebbers and Monahan, however, maintained it was not. Davis said he was “very disappointed and angry” to learn employees were paid for staffing the event. Luebbers said he felt with the firefighters’ apology Sept. 28 for the flyer posting, the issue was over.

If it’s not .gov, it’s not Social Security
When you go on a road trip, you need to follow the signs to arrive at the right place. Going online can be very much the same. Look for the “.gov” at the end of the web address – if it isn’t .gov, it isn’t the real Social Security website – www.socialseJan curity.gov. Demmerle c oCnosuunmt l ee rs ss Community nationwide are Press guest victimized each columnist year by misleading advertisers who use “Social Security” or “Medicare” to entice the public to use their services. In many cases, these companies offer Social Security services for a fee, even though the same services are available directly from Social Security, free of charge. These services include: • updating a Social Security card to show a bride’s married name; • replacing a Social Security card; and • getting a Social Security number for a child. These for-profit businesses may cleverly design their websites, so when people use Internet search engines, their advertisement pops up. They may even make their advertisement look similar to the real Social Security website. And some sites, at first glance, appear to be affiliated with Social Security. But upon closer examination, these are for-profit companies charging individuals for a service that is provided free by Social Security. For instance, a quick Google search on “replacing a Social Security card” brings up paid advertisements for websites that charge a fee just to get an application for a new card. That service is absolutely free from Social Security. The law that deals specifically with misleading Social Security and Medicare advertising prohibits people or non-government organizations, such as for-profit businesses, from using words or emblems that mislead others. Their advertising cannot lead people to believe that they represent or are somehow affiliated with or endorsed or approved by Social Security or the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (Medicare). But that doesn’t stop advertisers from trying. For more information, you can read our publication What You Need to Know about Misleading Advertising at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10005.html. When you go to www.socialsecurity.gov, make sure you look for the “.gov” sign along the way. Don’t be tricked into paying a fee for a service that’s free. And remember: if it isn’t .gov, it isn’t Social Security. Jan Demmerle is the manager of the Social Security office in Downtown Cincinnati. Do you have a Social Security-related question?

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Voting yes on Issue 2
As a resident of Delhi Township I attended candidates night for trustee sponsored by the Civic Association on Thursday, Oct. 6. I wrote my question on an index card and dropped it in the basket. My question was “How do you feel about issue 2, SB5, and why?” I expected an unbiased educated answer but instead I got from Carol Espelage “I’m voting no.” She sat down while the union people from the audience laughed and applauded. Issues are confusing and complicated. I have been educating myself on our politics and expect transparency and truth so that I can make an informed decision at the polls for the welfare of the community. I don’t want someone to tell me to shut up and vote no. My husband and I are one of the fortunate couples who have jobs however we are stretched financially as far as we can be. It’s time for some people to ante up and pay for some of there own benefits. I know the real reasons why to vote yes on Issue 2, I was hoping the candidates might give me the other side. So Carol, I’m voting yes. Neecy Jones, Delhi Township
Vote for Stertz
The trustee election will have a major impact regarding safety and direction of Delhi in the future. Significant financial and safety services issues will have to be addressed by someone who has a well rounded knowledge of the township. This person must be able to lead, listen, work well with others, and be a problem solver. They must be a good communicator in order to be effective. The person for this job is Rose Stertz. Rose Stertz has demonstrated all of the above attributes in serving Delhi on the FAB since its inception. She reviews the expenditures/receipts of police and fire on a line by line basis every month. Yearly and five year budgets have been developed and formulated with her input. Delhi’s financial issues should not be handled using city of Cincinnati methods. At the Civic Association meeting, one candidate (Klug) suggested a possible earnings tax in Delhi. This is a horrible idea. Safety services, both police and fire, are top priority with Rose. We don’t want to have Price Hill’s
crime. I cannot support candidates that may not prevent this from happening. Delhi deserves better. Vote for Rose Stertz on Nov. 8. Steve Hausfeld, Delhi Township
Delhi Township was in nice shape when Carol Espelage was a trustee. Now is the time to return Carol to office. Patti Loew, Delhi Township
Klug not qualified
Marijane Klug states on her website the reasons why she is best qualified to be a trustee of Delhi Township. I must say her reasons are my reasons why she is not the best. She said she has 23 years governmental experience with the city of Cincinnati. The city of Cincinnati has been going downhill the last 50 years. I don’t want that type of leadership for Delhi Township. She states she is a certified government financial manager. Again, don’t trust anything certifies by the government.

A new era for personal health records Just a few short years ago, we were busy writing personal letters, typing office correspondence and making copies through carbon paper. When we needed information, we reached for the encyclopedia or the phone book. Then, along came the Internet, email and electronic communication. When’s the last time you hand-wrote a letter? Do you even remember typewriters and carbon paper? One of the few remaining holdouts to electronic communication lies in the medical profession. Many medical care providers still jot down information on paper “charts” – you know, the ones waiting for your doctor in the bin outside the exam room. While more and more medical professionals are embracing the electronic age, health care is still woefully behind the curve. Adoption of health information technology – the sooner the better – will inevitably improve patient care. Not only will it improve your care, but it will put you in a much better position to manage your
care and communicate with medical professionals to take action to improve your quality of life. The advantages to electronic records Tim Ingram health (EHRs) are endCommunity less for patients care Press guest and For columnist providers. instance, imagine the reduced paperwork to fill out for office visits if all of your records were maintained electronically. Any crucial information or notices your doctor needed to see would pop up on your record. Accurate and fast electronic prescriptions could be sent directly to the pharmacy. These are just a few of the immediate benefits to EHRs. As we dig a little deeper, imagine health and prescription dosing alerts sent directly to your mobile phone. Think about all of the information that would be available at your fingertips when you
travel, visit a specialist or are admitted to a hospital. All of your medical history, lab reports, diagnoses, test results, immunizations, allergies, medications and radiological images could be available to a practitioner with the flick of a switch. What about, heaven forbid, if you are involved in an accident and are unable to communicate with first responders or emergency teams. Your EHR could provide instantaneous, accurate and lifesaving information to rescuers fighting to save your life. Let’s talk about some of the benefits of EHRs to the health care profession. Researchers could quickly look at volumes of data to pinpoint and control disease outbreaks or to work toward vaccines and ultimately, cures. EHRs can track your medications, giving health care providers a clear and accurate view of your entire health profile. With this more complete understanding of your health history, doctors can diagnose health problems and recommend the best courses of preven-
tion and treatment. And even more important, a complete view of your health records would significantly reduce the possibility of medical error. Last and perhaps most important, EHRs allow you to better communicate with your health care provider. Access to these records makes you an involved member of your health care team and provides you with a much greater degree of control over your care. What about privacy and safety of information? These are valid concerns, of course. Data contained in electronic systems is heavily secured, protected and backed up – certainly as compared to paper documents. For instance, if you are in an area affected by a natural disaster, your health information remains readily available through recovery techniques. Electronic protections and sharing protocols are highly sophisticated and greatly reduce the opportunity for human error or malfeasance. Tim Ingram is the health commissioner for Hamilton County.
Building bridges to Hispanic community Relationships are very personal experiences for human beings. From the time of our birth, we learn the value of closeness to another person and the warmth that this closeness brings to our lives. BRIDGES for a Just Community exists at the nexus of building lasting, sustainable and equitable communities for all people strengthened by mutual respect, inclusion, justice and collaboration. It is through these values that BRIDGES stands in a powerful relationship with the Hispanic community to bring attention to the important contributions made by thousands of men, women and children who now call Greater Cincinnati “home.” Having contact with diverse groups is the first step in building relationships, which is why recent data signals progress. In BRIDGES’ recent study (The Greater Cincinnati Survey – Spring 2010 with the University of Cincinnati), we learned that
approximately one-third of region residents who are White (32 percent) said they have contact with a Hispanic person as a good friend; Lynnette and 36 percent Heard of African Amerreport the Community icans same relationPress guest ship. columnist Fortunately, in the 2010 survey, a majority of Hispanic residents said they have contact with a white person as a good friend (81 percent), which is substantially higher than the 2007 survey report. This progress bodes well as more efforts are made to build and sustain lasting relationships with people who are Hispanic. During this year’s Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 through Oct. 16), BRIDGES encourages our community to learn more
about our Hispanic neighbors. A complete list of upcoming Hispanic events and activities is available online at www.cincinnatihhm.org. With the growth of the local Hispanic population in the 15county Tristate area, building and sustaining meaningful relationships makes a lot of sense. The number of Hispanic residents has more than doubled in the last 10 years (from 24,630 in 2000 to 55,120 in 2010), which accounts for more almost 25 percent of Greater Cincinnati’s population growth. The Hispanic population contributes $2.4 billion to the local economy. Not only are more Hispanics and Latinos living in the area, more are visiting the region as a direct result of efforts from local Hispanic organizations. In the last few years, three national conventions advancing the Hispanic community have made Cincinnati their “home away from home” for a few days. In particular, just this past summer, Cincinnati played
host to more than 19,000 attendees of the LULAC (League of United Latin American Citizens) national convention that poured millions of dollars into the local economy and offered unprecedented cultural experiences. We have much to learn from one another, and BRIDGES believes that every day of the year offers the potential to meet and begin to build a lasting relationship with someone from the Hispanic community. Especially during this year’s Hispanic Heritage Month, BRIDGES encourages everyone to participate by making an effort to get to know your Hispanic neighbors and participating in some of the special events and activities that will enrich our lives and build new relationships.

Sayler Park celebrates its past and present with By Heidi Fallon firstname.lastname@example.org
Sayler Park celebrated the season and its 100-year anniversary with an Oct. 7 parade and Oct. 8 Harvest Festival. Music, food, crafts and pounds of pumpkins filled the village park for the annual Saturday festival. Adding to the celebration was an appearance by one of Sayler Park’s early residents, Dr. William Gracely, for whom Gracely Drive is named. Portraying the popular physician was his grandson, William Nast. “I’m even wearing his watch,” Nast said, adding that “it still works.” Dressed as his grandfather, including the hat, Nast looked eerily like him as he stood next to Gracely’s portrait. “This really is a wonderful day for our family and a great event for Sayler Park,” he said. The Oct. 7 parade was the first one to be organized along with the fall festival. “We just thought it would be a lot of fun for people to be in and to watch pass by as we get ready to celebrate our anniversary,” said Kathy Berninger, one of the event organizers. “It sort of takes us back in time.”

Blending up a batch of Don’s Delicious Dressing from the norm, and after you make it, you’ll know why it’s been dubbed “Don’s delicious salad dressing.”
Don Deimling’s salad dressing
You can make this by hand, in a blender or food processor. I use a blender. Go to taste on the onion. Don suggests making it ahead for flavors to “marry.” If you like French or Catalina dressings and want to try your hand at making your own, this recipe is a “must try.”
1 cup canola oil 3 ⁄4 cup sugar 1 ⁄3 cup ketchup 1 ⁄4 cup clear vinegar Worcestershire to taste – start with a generous teaspoon Pinch of salt Small onion, grated – onions can be strong, so start out with a couple tablespoons. I chunked up a couple tablespoons and let that whirl in the blender with the rest of the ingredients.
Meringue ghosties for Halloween
Salad with Don Deimling’s salad dressing.
of 51 complete menus and 250 recipes with awesome photos. You can use the menu as a whole or pick and choose parts of it. I appreciate the fact that there are makeahead instructions so that you can get a lot of the work done before your company rings the bell. And that’s good for the cook! The book has wonderful recipes for fall, winter, celebrations, and holidays. This is one complete book. I can’t wait to try the Tres Leches Cake and the Middle Eastern Shish Kabobs.
I saw a photo of these in Pillsbury’s cooking magazine for Halloween. They were too cute. So I made a batch, using my own recipe. I will tell you I had to practice a little with making them. I just scooped up what didn’t look right and put the mixture back in the bag to re-form the ghosties.
Some tasty meringue ghosties for Halloween snacking. Start piping the head first and then go back and forth horizontally, making arms and body. 1 ⁄2 cup egg whites, room temperature (this makes for better volume) 1 ⁄2 teaspoon cream of tartar 1 ⁄4 teaspoon almond extract 1 ⁄8 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄2 cup sugar plus 1 tablespoon Mini chocolate chips for eyes (or other candy)
Heat oven to 200 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or baking mats. Beat whites, cream of tartar, extract and salt on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high until stiff glossy peaks form and

Salads are a big part of mealtime at our house. I try to make homemade dressings as much as I can, and the simpler, the better. T h a t ’s why I love the dressing I grew up with: garlic, Rita l e m o n Heikenfeld juice, olive oil, salt & Rita’s kitchen p e p p e r . But my family likes the French type dressings, too. One of my all time favorites is from friend and Milford reader, Don Deimling. In fact, I took supper over to Don and his wife, Carol, last week and wanted to make it special. So I dressed the salad with Don’s own recipe for what I call a country French type dressing. Don shared the recipe years ago in our kids’ school cookbook for St. Louis School in Owensville. That salad dressing is one of the most popular in the book. It’s a bit different

Technology makes it easier than ever to phone home Calling home from overseas remains a very expensive proposition these days but I found the cost can be cut dramatically if you sign up for the right service and have the right equipment. When I was overseas last year I signed up for the Skype service at $6.99 a month, and was able to call home using my iPod touch and a Wi-Fi connection. I found many restaurants and stores had free Wi-Fi service so the cost to call home was limited to that Skype fee.
T h i s year I found the S k y p e service p r i c e dropped to $2.99 a month for Howard Ain calls from Hey Howard! anywhere in the world to the United States. I signed up once again but this time I had an iPhone 4 with me. Everything was the same as last year, only this
time I didn’t have to put my phone away when traveling overseas – I just turned it on “airplane mode” so I could not send or receive calls by accident and incur roaming fees. I again looked for Wi-Fi locations so I could call home using Skype. The Skype pay service allows you to call landline phones not just computers. Another big difference this time was the iPhone 4 has a Face Time video phone application. I called my brother in New York
over the Skype service and he then called me on his iPad 2 using Face Time. I was able to see him clearly and he saw me. I gave him a live view of a street in Italy and was able to walk with the phone quite a distance showing him all the sights until the Wi-Fi signal was lost. I repeated this same procedure with my sons in Cincinnati – one of them was able to see my Face Time picture on his iPod touch while the other was able to view things on his

phone giving Face Time tours of the area than I did talking with people around me. Bottom line, this year I once again was able to call home for just pennies using Skype and Wi-Fi connections – but I was also able to give remarkable video tours of some of the sights I was seeing “live” from overseas.

iPhone 4. The chance to be able to do real-time video from the middle of a street or a cruise ship was quite remarkable. My brother and sons said the pictures they received were very good, comparable to or even better than that from Skype – and the setup was quick and easy. This time while overseas I found there were more WiFi areas than before, but most were locked so you could not use them. My wife says sometimes I spent more time on the

The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is on a search for memories. The goal: to collect photographs, diaries, and letters related to Cincinnati’s 1937 flood so they can be digitized to share with the world via the library’s website. Through the process of digitization, it’s possible to make a high quality electronic image of materials-even very fragile items-without causing them any damage. Once digitized, these items will be posted on the library’s website and available for the world to see. Images of the memorabilia will be included in an online display commemorating the historic flood. There is no need to submit original materials to be considered for digitization. Entrants need only complete a simple entry form, available online, by November 9. To submit your treasure, visit http://tiny.cc/ahkas. For further information, email Katrina.Marshall@cincinnati library.org, or call 513-3694592.

Sometimes it’s ﬁnancial relief. We’ve had a taste of fall, and we know winter heating bills will be in the mailbox soon enough. For a senior with a modest income, there is help from the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) administered by the Ohio Department of Development through local Community Action Agencies. An eligible senior can receive a credit or a voucher to apply toward a utility bill. HEAP funds are available beginning in November, and a similar program is offered during the summer months.

Help and Resources for Seniors
Sometimes it’s practical assistance. How can a senior get to a doctor if he can no longer drive safely, or if she has no relative or friend who can take her during the day? Seniors may be eligible for transportation to doctor or dentist visits or to therapy appointments. Or they may be able to arrange for rides to the grocery for supplies, or to a senior citizen center to meet friends or adult day care to participate in activities. CASS (Cincinnati Area Senior Services) is a transportation resource: 513-721-4330 Sometimes it’s emotional support. Although seniors may want to stay in their own homes, some may not

be able to prepare nutritious meals because of disability or illness, or a lack of transportation to buy groceries. This is of particular concern for those with special dietary needs. Using a meal delivery service can provide wholesome meal and a break in a senior’s day – social contact with a volunteer trained to observe problems the senior may have at home.
Our advice • Whether you are a senior or are in a position to help a senior, explore the options. Start by calling the Council on Aging at (513) 721-1025 or (800) 252-0155 toll free, or by visiting its website at www.help4seniors.org. The COA offers practical solutions to common problems. • Ask. Many people have experienced or are going through the same challenges. Many organizations were established to provide just the help you’re looking for. Call A Caring Choice, Inc. (513-574-4148) for answers. • Share what you learn with others. http://www.cincinnati.com/ health/support_illness.html is a local website featuring support groups.

Slipping hillsides topic at conservancy meeting
The Land Conservancy of Hamilton County, Ohio will hold its fall program at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21, at the historic Town Hall in Miamitown, state Route 128 and Main Street in Whitewater Township. The public is invited to attend this free program. For more information, visit www.LandConservancyHC.org or call 513574-1849. The meeting will review the year’s land conservation work, share plans for the future, and have election of board members. Featured presentation: “Greater Cincinnati Hillsides: Slip Sliding Away.” Like to get a fresh perspective on a geohazard that puts tristate hillsides at risk? Tim Agnello, a professional geologist, works to increase public awareness of local landslide problems. In his presentation, “Greater
Cincinnati Hillsides: Slip Sliding Away,” Agnello delves deep into the origins of earth movement as he explores the history of landsliding in the area. He explains how excavation for early roads, rock quarries, tunnels, railroads, inclines and canals unwittingly set the stage for ongoing destabilization of hillsides. His company, Ohio Valley Landslides LLC, advises those who plan to build on a hillside (he sometimes tells them not to), to helping property owners understand their landslide risk. The Land Conservancy of Hamilton County, Ohio — a nonprofit land trust with membership open to all – helps families preserve their lands, and works to protect our County’s land and water resources to benefit the quality of life of all citizens.
