Veteran calls Nov. 11 day of honor di Fallon

Henry Armstrong spent 42 years serving his country and would sign up again today if the Army would let him. “Pearl Harbor was bombed when I was 16 and I went down to enlist but they wouldn’t let me without my mother’s approval and she wasn’t about to give it,” Armstrong said. So, he waited. And then signed up to serve. His first assignment after basic training was what he called a pack artillery unit. After months of training, including leading the mules up and down Pikes Peak in Colorado, the Army modernized and the mules were eliminated as a mode of transportation. “You had to be at least six feet tall to be part of the unit to be able to hoist the howitzer pieces on the mules. Luckily, I was six three.” Armstrong boarded a ship in 1944 heading for France. With him was his closest friend, Walt Olsen, a pitcher for the Brooklyn Dodgers. The two were treated to a steak lunch by Dodgers’ owner Branch Rickey, then spent the $20 they had between them to take in a Broadway play and have dinner before heading off. “I was this green, scared kid from Covington and I was scared to death,” Armstrong said. “We

His time overseas included being admonished by Gen. George Patton to put his helmet on and watching the famous commander urinate in the Rhine River after troops captured the area.

Incline District gets entertainment designation

St. Aloysius on the Ohio earns Super School status, Bengals visit By Heidi Fallon

By Kurt Backscheider

The Incline District in East Price Hill has been approved as a Community Entertainment District. Cincinnati City Council voted unanimously Oct. 19 to give the area designation as a Community Entertainment District (CED), which will help the neighborhood attract new restaurants. “A CED is a designation that was created by the state of Ohio as an economic development tool,” said Diana Vakharia, director of operations for Price Hill Will. “It allows restaurant owners to open with a liquor license, reducing the typical start-up costs by about $30,000.” Price Hill Will applied for the designation for the Incline District. Vakharia said a CED must be comprised of at least 20 acres and include a combination of entertainment, retail, sporting, cultural or arts establishments. The organization worked with City Councilwoman Laure Quinli-

He was in a foxhole when he received word of the birth of his first son. “I loved Vienna sausages and I had saved a tin with a block of cheese, and we made lemonade from a powder mix and that’s how we celebrated my son’s birth.” He watched a soldier standing next to him cut in two by artillery fire and vividly remembers his first night alone on patrol. “I was so scared, but I was most afraid of not reacting and not remembering my training

and shaming myself and letting others down,” he said. “But, like when my buddy was killed, you move on. Your training does take over and you just keep moving. You’re sad and you’re sick to your stomach, but you keep moving. “That’s one thing I tried to instill in soldiers I trained later. Listen and remember your training. They’re yelling at you for reason.” He also helped liberate a labor camp filled with Jewish prisoners. “We killed every guard but one and freed the 800 prisoners, but we found thousands of bodies scattered in the woods surrounding the camp.” When the war ended and Armstrong came home, he wasn’t quite ready to put his uniform in mothballs. He served until 1984 in a variety of roles, including a stint at the Pentagon. Since officially retiring and moving to Delhi Township, Armstrong most recently has helped organize the Delhi Township Veterans Association and remains active with other veterans groups. “For me, Veterans Day is a day to remember and honor those who have died, not the ones, like me, who are still around to enjoy the freedoms we’ve fought and died for.”

It was a contest parents and staff at St. Aloysius on the Ohio entered on a hopeful whim. The contest included writing the four required essays about how the school values the National Football League’s Play 60 concept of 60 minutes of daily activity, submitting photos from the school’s Back to Football Friday tailgate party featuring healthy snacks and expounding on the ways the school promotes a healthier lifestyle for children, those parents, teachers and students waited.

visit from six Cincinnati Bengals Nov. 2. Decked out in their best and brightest Bengal gear, chanting Who Dey, students formed a tunnel for the players to navigate on their way to the school’s front door. From there, the players signed the designated five items, including a football and photos, for the school to use in future fund-raising efforts. Then the players - Michael John-

son, Thomas Howard, Domata Peko, Andrew Whitworth, Nate Livings and Leon Hall - were the stars at the spirited assembly where they presented school Principal Rick Harrmann with the check. Students rotated from lifting weights with guard Nate Livings, to jumping rope with defensive back Leon Hall, to a football toss relay with defensive tackle Domata Peko.

Supporting the troops

The Yellow Ribbon Support Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to all military personnel currently assigned overseas. One of its goals is “Project In Theatre,” an effort to establish DVD libraries in military basis in the Middle East. Troops have very limited options to enjoy their down time when not on missions or assignment. They do have the ability to watch movies through shared computers and personal lap tops. With access to DVD Libraries they will be able to select a wide variety of movies to help them unwind and relax. The Yellow Ribbon Support System and city of Cincinnati employees are ask-

Burwinkel lauded by United Way By Kurt Backscheider

Bill Burwinkel lives by the phrase, “You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.” The East Price Hill resident makes a difference in the lives of children throughout Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky each day through the Adopt A Class program he founded. His dedication to pairing classrooms in underserved urban schools with businesses and community groups has earned Burwinkel recognition from the United Way. He was recently presented with the United Way’s first ever Clement L. Buenger Award. “It was very exciting to be selected to be the inaugural recipient of the award,” Burwinkel said. “To be honored by the United Way was very moving.” The new award honors an individual in the community who is strongly committed to ensuring all children and youth succeed academically. It’s named for Clem Buenger, a successful banker who served as the president and CEO of Fifth Third Bank for more than a decade. Buenger chaired the highly successful 1981 United Way campaign, and, in 1991, he led what became known as the Buenger Commission that developed a report outlining rec-

ommendations for improving Cincinnati Public Schools. He and his wife, Ann, were dedicated volunteers who gave their time and resources throughout their lives. Recipients of the Buenger Award must demonstrate extraordinary leadership, commitment or involvement in helping children or schools as they strive toward academic excellence. Burwinkel, the owner and CEO of National Marketshare Group in Lower Price Hill, started the Adopt A Class program in 2003. His employees at National Marketshare were the first to adopt a class and enrich the lives of students by providing resources, classroom support and special events and activities. The first classrooms to be adopted were at Oyler School in Lower Price Hill.

“The Adopt A Class mission is to provide positive role models who will help develop practical and social skills for students,” Burwinkel said. Since the first class was adopted in 2003, he said the program has grown to include a network of more than 150 business and community groups who have partnered with 20 schools in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. “It’s amazing,” he said. “We’ve added 42 new adopters since last May alone.” Burwinkel said receiving the award from the United Way was truly a special honor, and he hopes it will help garner more attention for Adopt A Class.

taurant. Vakharia said the Bayou Fish House, which also has a location in Covington, will open in the building across the street from Corner BLOC Coffee on Price Avenue in early 2012. Ken Smith, executive director of Price Hill Will, said there is so much happening in the area, especially along Price Avenue. “From the Incline Square project and Olden View Park renovation on one end to the Elberon renovation at the other, those projects have put that area on the road to redevelopment,” he said. “The entertainment district designation will put that redevelopment in the fast lane.”

The Incline District’s CED will cover 48 acres, primarily along Price Avenue. Vakharia said the CED is central to the Incline Business District Master Plan, a proposal aiming to provide a pedestrianfriendly commercial corridor. She said Price Hill Will applied for the designation because, based on market data the organization analyzed and feedback from residents, the community lacks dine-in restaurant options. “With this new designation the neighborhood business district is able to receive up to nine additional liquor permits with community approval,” she said.

Navy veteran deciphered coded information in WWII

Mass, tours end St. Martin’s centennial festivities

By Kurt Backscheider

Frank Lukas owes the many adventures in his lifetime to serendipity. “Because even with the best of plans we don’t always control our journeys,” he said. Lukas’ life has certainly been a journey. The longtime Covedale resident has experienced a great deal in his 96 years. “I’ve enjoyed a full life,” he said. “Two and a third years were taken out of my life to do things I never dreamed of doing and in places I’d never heard of, and I was 10,000 miles from home. I did what I was asked to do and, I think, did them well.”

Shaker Heights

Born in Cleveland in 1915, Lukas grew up in the Shaker Heights suburb outside of the city. His father, an immigrant from Longtime Covedale the Czech Republic who was a sucresident Frank Lukas, cessful building contractor, died 96, served as a when Lukas was just 3-and-a-half lieutenant junior years old, leaving his mother to raise grade in the U.S. him and his two older siblings. Navy during World He said he spent his summers War II. KURT vacationing on Lake Erie in BACKSCHEIDER/THE the family’s cottage in MenCOMMUNITY PRESS tor, and he developed a lifelong interest in the hobby of building model ships. When he graduated high school the Great Depression was at its lowest point, and he said work opportunities were few. Tuition at Kent State University was $175 per semester at the time and Lukas was fortunate enough to attend college and pursue the study of chemistry.

Frank Lukas served as an officer in the U.S. Navy during World War II. This is a photo of him from when he was stationed at a base in the Philippines. PROVIDED

War begins

While studying at Kent State, Lukas said his affinity for chemistry was replaced with photojournalism. He left college in the spring of 1941 and took a job in the public relations department at the Atlas Powder Co., the operating contractor for the Ravenna Ordnance Plant – a 22-square-mile facility that 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 13 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 19 manufactured ammunition “Assisting young men in their formation as leaders and men for others through rigorous college preparation and explosives for the military. in the Jesuit tradition since 1831.” “That was shortly before the attack on Pearl Harbor,” he said. 600 W. North Bend Road He worked at the plant as a Cincinnati, Ohio 45224 • 513.761.7600 photographer and part of his duties @stxlongblueline included setting up exhibits of ordnance at banks, grocery stores and libraries for educational purposes. Lukas received consecutive deferments from the military in six-month increments during his time at the ordnance plant, but as World War II dragged on he learned he wouldn’t get any additional deferments. “I didn’t want to be drafted because I would have no choice in where I was assigned,” he said. “In January 1944 I applied for a commission to the Navy. I was granted the commission as an ensign at the age of 28. “Suddenly, I was ‘an officer and a gentleman,’” he said.

Naval assignment

After two months of indoctrination at the Naval Training Station in Hollywood, Fla., Lukas received his next assignment. “I was with my five roommates when we were handed our orders,” he said. “Some of the guys were assigned to Hawaii while others were off to Alaska. “When I opened my envelope the air left me. It said I was going to school in Cambridge for further training. That’s not what I signed up for,” he said. Lukas was sent to communications school at Harvard University, where he was trained to translate codes and operate an electronic cyphering machine. He and his fellow intelligence officers were in class from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., behind a classroom door guarded by armed Marines. “We had to learn a whole new language,” he said. “We learned four code systems and the electronic cyphering machine. It was three-and-a-half months of training, we came out of there mentally constipated.” The pleasurable aspect of training at Harvard was the fact his wife, Helen, whom he married in June 1943, was able to move to Cambridge and find a job at the university library. “On weekends Helen and I toured historical places and the beaches, took in Boston Pops and learned that milk shakes are called frappes,” Lukas said.

Pacific theater

The Navy officer, who reached the rank of lieutenant junior grade, reported to a base in Sand Point, Wash., to practice what he learned at Harvard before being shipped to the war zone. Lukas found himself on Palawan Island in the western


Philippines, where he helped put into operation an airstrip U.S. forces captured from the Japanese. He was appointed the registered publications officer. “It was a fancy title for ‘keeper of the codes,’” he said. “My assignment was in a minimum access room.” When he wasn’t deciphering classified coded messages he also served as the photography officer, and he designed a processing studio on the island where he and his staff could develop photographs taken during air strikes so pilots could review them. Lukas also served on the Summary Court Martial Board during the war.

Settling on the West Side

Upon his discharge from the Navy, Lukas returned to Cleveland to look for work. He and a friend looked into establishing their own photography business, but Lukas’ former boss at Atlas Powder, who had moved to Cincinnati to work for the Crosley company, offered him a job. Lukas worked in public relations at Crosley for many years, but his desire to work in photo illustration came to fruition when he took a job with Frank Hulefeld & Associates. He established a photographic branch at the firm and did commercial artwork for companies like

A year of special events, prayer and reflection comes to a close on Friday, Nov. 11, when St. Martin of Tours Parish in Cheviot concludes its celebration of its 100th anniversary. The Centennial Closing Mass and Celebration with Archbishop Dennis Schnurr will take place at 7pm on Friday 11-11-11, St. Martin’s feast day. A reception will follow. Catholics in Cheviot decided100 years ago that they needed a local parish closer to their homes and a committee of 13 people was formed to pursue that dream. The first church was a white clapboard structure. The magnificent building standing today was built in 1923. St. Martin’s is at 3720 St. Martin’s Place at the corner of Glenmore Avenue. This is the final formal event commemorating “A Century of Caring – A Legacy of Faith.” But the parish is opening its doors two days later for tours of the church and school form 1-4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 13.The tours are open to everyone. Parishioners, former parishioners, former students, as well as anyone who has passed the church and wondered what it is like inside are welcome to stop in. The current church, which was dedicated in 1923, is the third church building in the 100 years of the parish. It has undergone restoration and renovation several times, most recently in 1999. The 100-foot center aisle leads to the beautiful marble which was crafted in Italy. The dome sits 52 feet high. Most of the stained glass windows were made in Germany and have long been admired by visitors to the church. Volunteers will be stationed throughout the church, pointing out details and historical information. Historic photos will be on display to show some of the changes that have taken place over the years. Visitors will have the opportunity to get a view of the church from the choir loft where they can also get a closer look at the organ. Both the yellow and red school buildings will be open as well. The red school basement served as the church from 1912 until 1923 when the current church was completed. Former students are welcome to take a trip down memory lane and see how things have changed – or not changed. A number of former teachers plan to be there.


Kroger and Procter & Gamble. “I did a lot of work for Pringles,” he said. Lukas and his wife moved to Covedale, where they raised two daughters and lived for more than 50 years. Helen sdied in 2010, but the couple enjoyed 67 years of adventure together. Lukas, who now lives on his own in Westwood, is grateful to have had the opportunity to witness all he has in his life, he said. “I have been fortunate to walk upon this fine earth,” he said.

Elder students take a walk for others

By Kurt Backscheider

West Siders may have noticed the sea of purple making its way along streets in Price Hill and Western Hills on Oct. 17. Elder High School students were out in the community taking part in the school’s 38th annual Walk for Others. More than 900 students traversed a 12-mile trek through Price Hill, Westwood, Bridgetown and Cheviot to raise money for the school and deserving charitable organizations. “More than $75,000 in pledges was collected,” said Brian Bill, Elder’s alumni relations and assistant development director. “The school goal of $70,000 was met and surpassed, earning a free day for the entire school.” He said 75 percent of the proceeds from the walk go directly to Elder’s tuition assistance program and the other 25 percent is donated to worthy organizations and causes like Project El-Moe, Price Hill Will, The Women’s Connection and the Holy Family Food Pantry. Each student is required to collect at least $30 for the walk, and Bill said this year more than half of the students raised $80 or more. “Our devoted faculty members are involved, too,” he said. “While all have assignments the day of the walk, 31 of them actually walked or ran alongside the students.” Elder art teacher Dave Buetsche conducts a T-shirt design and slogan contest each year, and students voted senior Elliot Duwell this year’s winner. His black Tshirt featured a panther on the front and the slogan “12 Miles Walking; 38 Years Running” on the back. Bill said Elder thanks the more than 70 parent volunteers who helped make the event a success, especially Jenny Berndsen for coordinating all the volunteers. “We also appreciate everyone who gave so generously when asked,” Bill said.

Delhi woman presents DAR award The Mariemont Daughters of the American Revolution recently honored Mariemont resident Jane McDonald with the Historic Preservation Recognition Award. The Village of Mariemont was one council meeting away from condemning Mary Emery’s 1924 “Resthaven Barn” when The Woman’s Art Club Foundation formed to save the barn and provide the first permanent home for the Woman’s Art Club of Cincinnati. For 50 years, Mariemont used this facility as its maintenance barn. The village built a new facility and believed by tearing the old barn down it would produce income with three home sites. Mariemont sold the barn to the Foundation for $50,000, with the stipulation that construction must start in six months. Jane McDonald saw this

barn as an historic structure that had just seen better days. To her it was 10,000 square feet of neglect. Never did she believe its restoration would not happen. Her Southern charm would win over the skeptics. McDonald moved the board into high gear and never looked back. McDonald led the rally to “Save the Barn” as it was an important part of the community and she saw its potential as a place for the residents to gather. She was the pied piper always on call. She met construction trucks at dawn, inspectors and plumbers throughout the days. McDonald scraped and painted walls in the heat, Dumpster dove to save doors, planted flowers, dug weeds, hauled dirt, carted bushes, worked yard sales and was never far when a questions arose. She was the contact for

the 2 a.m. alarms set off by lightening. She spent nights on the computer writing drafts and days greeting and touring skeptics. She was the leader who bridged the gap between the community and the the Woman’s Art Club members. She conveyed the vision and guided the course. McDonald was a quick change artist would remove her boots and paint pants and don party shoes and dresses to conduct tours for donors. She dragged a state representatives up to the hay loft to show off the beauty and possibilities. Funds came from everyone who knew anyone who had a dollar to spare. McDonald spoke at civic meetings, flower clubs, the D.A.R., The Cincinnati Woman’s Club and to anyone with an ear. Carl and Robert Lindner walked through the barn

In five months plans were approved and the barn was being restored. In two years, $760,000 was amassed. This grassroots effort, with only volunteers, im-

pressed the Ohio State Legislature. It presented the barn a Capital Improvement Grant of $220,000 to finish the west wing. The Grand Opening Celebration of the Woman’s Art Center brought dignitaries, construction workers, art club friends, guests from across the city, neigh-

borhood families and the curious who watched the project for three years. The BARN is now home to artists with permanent studio space, art instructions both during the day and night and a fabulous gallery with monthly shows that bring visitors to the barn and the community. What was an eyesore became a lively center of activity and a neighborhood asset. The barn has received three prestigious awards for its restoration. The Heritage Ohio Award, The Griffin Yeatman and the Ohio Historical Preservation Awards in 2009. At the Ohio Historical Award ceremony the other recipients were large corporations with huge sponsorships and there sat “The Table from The Barn” winning the biggest acclaim.

Mount inviting students to design charrette High school and college students work together in the design charrette from last year. This year's charrette will be held on Saturday, Nov. 19, at the Mount. THANKS

High school and college students are invited to participate in the College of Mount St. Joseph’s annual Student Design Charrette 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, at the Mount. It is a free event for students. The charrette, a collaborative effort for designers to draft a solution to a design problem, is a handson workshop that brings students together from different backgrounds to explore design options. The student design charrette is


much like what they might see on “Project Runway” or other reality TV shows based on a collaborative project. The Mount’s design charrette pairs high school students with college students. “The design charrette is an excellent opportunity for high school students to complete a team-designed project,” said Kim Burke, chairwoman, interior architecture and design program at the Mount. “Students can use their cre-


ative energy in a fun way that allows them to have real experience in the design field.” The program begins at 9 a.m. Breakfast and lunch will be provided and prizes and awards will be given to the top designers. For more information or fill out an online form, please visit the website at

Mercy bows out in Sweet 16 By Ben Walpole

cats’ season ended with a loss to league rival Ursuline. The Lions won a tough, five-game match, Wednesday, Nov. 2. “Our goal was to push past where we lost last year, and we didn’t get a chance to meet that goal,” Mercy head coach Denise Harvey said. “I would consider that to be our best match of the season, so you can’t ask for much more than that.” Harvey was pleased with her team’s preparation, its execution of the game plan, its ability to maintain composure through momentum swings. All trends that served the Bobcats well as they closed the season winning four of their last five matches. “Since the postseason started we’ve been having our best practices,” Harvey said. “We’ve been preparing a lot better.” Mercy finished the year with an 18-8 record, the program’s winningest season since 2008. Seniors Lindsey Dinkelacker and Marissa Prinzbach were named first-team all-Girls Greater Cincinnati League Scarlet. Morgan Redrow was a secondteam selection.

Mercy sophomore finds home as runner By Ben Walpole

Oak Hills' Blake Meyer is congratulated after finishing the state cross country meet in Hebron, Nov. 5. NICK DUDUKOVICH/THE COMMUNITY PRESS.

Oak Hills’ Meyer right on schedule By Ben Walpole

It’s almost like Blake Meyer is following a script. The Oak Hills High School junior has hit every cue so far during his cross country career – this week’s appearance in the Division I state meet being the latest highlight. “This is exactly where we expected him to be,” said Oak Hills head boys cross country coach Joe Zeinner. “This has been three years in the making.” Competing as an individual, Meyer ran a 16:10.54 to finish 37th in the Division I state meet, Saturday, Nov. 5, at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio. “I was pretty much shooting for (state) this year,” Meyer said. “It was a big goal of mine to reach it as a junior. “It being my junior year, it’s really my year to see how it is.” The script started three years ago. Meyer entered high school with some fanfare having been one of the top junior high runners in the city during his time at Rapid Run Middle School. “The middle school coach (Carl Anderson) told me he was nothing but a hard worker and that’s exactly what Blake is,” Zeinner said. “He’s not afraid to do what it takes. “Even as a freshman, he never ran like a freshman. I let him know from the getgo that his plans were at the varsity level. He’s never run a JV race in his life.” Freshman year was for adjusting to the varsity level – longer races, older

competition. He finished 55th at the regional meet that year. Sophomore year was for improvement. Meyer finished 28th in the 2010 regional meet. Junior year became the state year. “That was our whole goal this year,” Zeinner said. “So that his senior year he can really go up there and give it everything he’s got.” In order to make junior year a state year, Meyer had to make some sacrifices. He played baseball at Oak Hills as a freshman, but this past spring he decided to run track for the first time. He credits it with putting him in great shape for the fall cross country season. “It really catapulted him to the next level,” Zeinner said. “This year he took a big jump. To go from (28th) to 10th (at regionals) is pretty big.” The other key this season was his emergence as a leader. Oak Hills sent Izak Velasquez to state in 2009, and Cody Lacewell in 2010. Their graduation left Meyer and Ross Frondorf, though still only juniors themselves, at the helm of a young team. It’s a role Meyer and Frondorf embraced. And the lessons they learned from trips to Columbus in support of the former teammates at state the last two years helped them continue the tradition this year for the Highlanders. “When I was a freshman I didn’t really realize how big a meet it is,” said Meyer of the state experience. “There were thousands and thousands of people. It was really crazy, and it really motivated me to get up there as a junior.”

WESTWOOD — It took a few years, but it appears Emma Hatch has found her athletic niche. The Mother of Mercy High School sophomore became the youngest runner in school history to qualify for the state cross country meet as an individual. She finished 53rd at the Division I state meet, Saturday, Nov. 5, at the National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio, with a time of 19:20.79. “She’s a fun girl to coach,” Mercy head coach Scott Ridder said. “She’s very humble, and she doesn’t like a lot of attention. She’s very workmanlike.” Hatch has been running competitively for a little more than year. Yep, that’s right. In about 16 months, she has gone from frustrated soccer player to cross country star. “I would try not to get the ball too often because I was afraid I’d mess it up,” said Hatch, summarizing her grade-school soccer career. “In other sports I’m just kind of average good.” Basketball was her first athletic love – she started playing in the second grade. But the running bug always seemed destined to bite her. “I always said, ‘Once I get to high school, I’ll start running cross country,’” Hatch said, “mostly because my parents run.” Her parents – Brian and Mary (Loebker) – met in college as runners for the University of Cincinnati cross country team. Her mother owns the fifth-fastest time in Oak Hills High School cross country history. “Her parents were very good runners,” Ridder said. “We knew there were

He’s not only her coach, he’s her uncle, so he’s known Emma since she was a baby. “She had played a lot of basketball and soccer,” Ridder said. “She’d never shown a lot of leg speed when I’d seen her. But she could run for awhile without getting tired.” Emma made good on years of promises by joining the Mercy cross country program last summer. She found she enjoyed running, she liked the people on the team – especially her cousin Megan Ridder, the coach’s daughter – and, most importantly, she was good at it. By the end of her freshman year, she was among the varsity team’s top three runners. She finished fifth in the Girls Greater Cincinnati League Scarlet meet. “It just helped me grow in confidence,” Emma said. “It was exciting.” What made last season’s accomplishments even

more impressive was the fact that she had missed a lot of the June conditioning because of family vacations and her commitments to the Mercy basketball team. Buoyed by her freshman success, she devoted more time to running this past summer. “I definitely didn’t skip any of the conditioning,” Hatch said. “And if I missed something, I’d run on the treadmill. I ran on vacation just to keep in shape.” The result was Emma cutting nearly a minute off of her time, culminating in the state berth. A straight-A student, she also earned Academic All-Ohio honors this fall. “We knew she was talented because she done so well without it (the conditioning),” Ridder said. “How talented we just didn’t know until we started racing. “It’s a lot of fun to see her do so well.”

Bombers persevere to finish 6th at state By Ben Walpole

The St. Xavier cross country team’s road to the state meet was anything but easy. The Bombers had to replace six seniors from last year’s state team. Then came the sudden loss of top runner Jake Grabowski just before the league meet due to a medical concern. The Bombers rallied to win the Greater Catholic League South championship, win the district championship, win the regional championship and finish sixth at the Division I state

meet Nov. 5 in Hebron, Ohio. Sophomores Michael Hall and Evan Stifel have been keys to the success. Hall, in particular, has improved at an incredibly rapid clip. He was the team’s fourth finisher at the St. Xavier Invitational, Oct. 1. Three weeks later he was third in the entire district meet. Four weeks later he was fifth in the entire region. Stifel has emerged as a solid No. 2. He finished 14th at regionals. Juniors Patrick Drumm, Alex Kuvin, Michael Momper and Andrew Gardner and sen-

Lancer wraps stately season By Nick Dudukovich

HEBRON — For Drew

Michel, returning to the state cross country championships was a big deal. The La Salle High School senior wanted to vindicate his 2010 performance after placing 74th, with a run of 16 minutes, 36 seconds. Michel bettered last year’s finish by 26 spots to place 41st the second time around with a mark 16 minutes, 21 seconds, And while the Lancer didn’t meet his goal of a top-25 finish, he was content with how he ran. “I think I did pretty good,” he said. “I didn’t do great, but I did all right.” Michel said the pace of the race, held at the National Trail Raceway in Hebron, was fast. He said he ran an average first mile, and that it was hard to catch up with other runners in the remaining miles. “After (the first mile), everyone sped up and I couldn’t was pretty

quick,” he said. The state meet wrapped up a stellar season for Michel. The senior started off the 2011 campaign with a first-place finish at the Moeller Primetime Invitational, Aug. 26, and turned in another victory at the Greater Catholic League Championships, with a personal best time of 15 minutes, 37 seconds, Oct. 15. Michel’s said his performance at the GCL meet set the tone for his postseason. “I wanted to win that race,” he said, “...and it kept me working hard for the next three races.” In the postseason, Mi-

chel nabbed third (16:04) in the district meet at Voice of America Park, Oct. 22. A ninth-place finish (16:07) at regionals punched his ticket for Hebron. Michel credited the winor-go-home mentality of the postseason with helping him return to the state final. “When you think of the regular season, you are always going to get to race the next week,” he said. “(In the postseason), if you don’t race well, then you are done. That always made me on the tip of my toes.”

It constantly amazes us folks who travel about with white canes and dog guides to realize that other people regard us as amazing or remarkable. We are amazed, not amazing. Think about that attitude of others; is it based on the fact that we are not expected to move about freely, work, raise families, and

have fun as others do? Why are other people so arrogant that they think the world should only include and accommodate them? When the writer asked Hevener, “What message do you want most for readers to hear?” She responded, “I want people to know in their very bones and in every brain cell they possess that I am a person just like them, and, because I do some activities differently, I should be no less included and accommodated than they are.” You may call Katherine Hevener at 513-471-8866, or e-mail her at if you are in need of a speaker or a speech coach.

Catholics did not always enjoy freedom The first amendment to the constitution of the United States ratified in 1791 provided for religious freedom. But that religious freedom was denied Catholics in early Cincinnati, which passed a law around 1802, prohibiting a Catholic church within the city limits. This law eventually led to the Bible Wars of the 1860s. By 1819, Ohio had 581,295 residents and 9,642 of those were Catholic. In1821, Cincinnati was a growing city with 9,642 people. Ohio had been created a diocese with Father Edward Fenwick D.O. from Bardstown, Ky., as the first bishop. Most of the Catholics population was either Irish or German immigrants. They had indentured themselves to shipmasters to pay for their passage to America. The rest were immigrants that purchased land on credit for whatever they could pay and expected the sale of crops to pay for the land. However, crop failures left the parishioners almost destitute. The additional burden of the war debts from the War of 1812 left the new nation heavily in debt. In addition, there were numerous bank failures between 1820 and 1830. This resulted in personal financial losses to the growing state. Bishop Fenwick felt that if his diocese were going to survive he would have to ask the Catholic countries of Europe for financial help. In 1822, the Catholic Church

had established the Society of the Propagation of the Faith in Lyons, France, to aid priests, brothers and nuns engaged in preaching the Betty Gospel in heaKamuf COMMUNITY PRESS then and nonCatholic counGUEST COLUMNIST tries. Fenwick sent his vicar general, Father Rese, to plead his case. He returned with Mass paraphernalia, vestments, statuary, a printing press and an annual subsidy for his diocese. In 1825, the Ohio Legislature passed a law establishing a public school system paid for by taxes. Between 1825 and 1829 work began on the Miami and Erie Canal, and the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. Irish Catholic workers found work building them. Their numbers grew and eventually Fenwick had built a Catholic complex on Sycamore Street consisting of a cathedral, seminary, college and rectory. He also had started publishing a Catholic newspaper called, The Catholic Telegraph. The Irish Catholics had obtained funds from the eastern United States and build St. Patrick’s Church at Vine and Liberty outside the city limits. It was a barn like structure with logs cut in Kentucky and rafted to Cincinnati and transported to the site by

oxen. In 1829, Cincinnati Board of Examiners started levying taxes for the support of public schools. Protestant controlled the political scene and donated money, teachers and books to the public schools and were asked to sit on the first board of examiners. A Cholera pandemic hit Ohio in 1833 taking the life of Fenwick and many other citizens. A new Irish bishop, John the Baptist Purcell, became the second bishop of Ohio. By the 1830s, the American Home Missionary Society dominated the religious and political scene in Cincinnati. Both the AMHS and the Sunday and Adult School Union were obsessed with the growth of Catholicism in the Mississippi Valley. Their purpose was to diffuse the influence of the Sabbath and the Bibles and stamp out the dangerous tradition of immigrants from Catholic Europe from taking over the area. They were afraid that Germans would enter Jesuit institutions where the German language and religion was taught, and abandon their own religion. They felt the real reason for Catholic schools was to evangelize.

A new way to bleed Purple Winston Churchill once said, “First we shape our buildings, then they shape us.” In 2001 USA Today chose Elder's “Pit”, because of its unique physical relationship with the neighborhood, “Dug into Price Hill. Backyards border the stadium.” as one of the 10 best places to watch a high school football game. Historic Blue Collar homes that visually say “tradition” tower directly behind the Elder faithful - giving the secure feeling that the neighborhood has our back. To the opponent they suggest a wall of entrapment, a sense that they have unwittingly committed to a street fight. Simply put, the homes that are visible from the field are vital to the “intimidating setting” which is our home field advantage. Former Moeller coach Steve Klonne once noted that on game days the school parking lot was half full. But when he entered the stadium he was amazed to see 10,000 fans. This was at a time when the Purple Nation walked to the games - when we lived in and

cared for the neighborhood. But, collectively, as we followed the path of progress, the march of affluence, we now have more of a love/hate relationship. We love our memories, and we love that we could afford to move from Price Hill. But we hate how the neighborhood has changed as a result. Today I believe we are motivated by fear and hope - fear that we need to protect Elder from the corrupting influences of current social and economic forces - and hope that the Pit will again be surrounded by suitable neighbors that the neighborhood will again be the pedestal on which the Pit is proudly displayed. This is what motivated a group of alumni to purchase and care for a home on Regina Avenue. Behind it, within inches of the Pit, was built a huge pavilion from which to watch the games. Accordingly, ESPN has lovingly described the neighborhood surrounding the Pit as having a “Wrigley Field atmosphere”! Why then, in the name of Elder, are these strategically locat-

ed homes being purchased and demolished? - creating missing teeth in a once charming streetscape. Will the Pit become another mundane venue surrounded by a boring parking lot? After the uncharacteristic 56 to 7 loss at the Pit I questioned, “Is this the result of divine intervention? By biting the neighborhood hand that feeds us, have we angered the patriots of Price Hill's proud past - General Reese Price and Archbishop Elder himself? Will the “Patriot Curse” be our new football folklore?” Fortunately, in Churchill's words, I find hope. I realize that we now have a new way in which to “Bleed Purple” - a new path of progress. If we choose, the Purple Nation could again be the Pit's suitable neighbor, so as to reshape Price Hill - an achievement that in turn would shape us, in the image of Altiora.

Paige Dean, a St. Aloysius on the Ohio sixth-grader, apparently found lifting weights a lot harder than she thought despite the encouragement of Cincinnati Bengal Nate Livings. HEIDI FALLON/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Preschool student Carter Jung, 3, really had to crane his neck to get a better view of the line up of Bengals that made a special appearance at his school Nov. 1 to present St. Aloysius on the Ohio with a check and congratulations for being selected as an NFL Play 60 Super School.

Bengals Play 60 in Sayler Park The victorious parents and staff of St. Aloysius on the Ohio hosted six Cincinnati Bengals Nov. 2 after winning the National Football League’s Play 60 contest. They had submitted four essays and photos from the school’s Back to Football Friday tailgate party as their entry. Students and staff decked out in their Bengal gear to welcome players Michael Johnson, Thomas Howard, Domata Peko, Andrew Whitworth, Nate Livings and Leon Hall, as they presented school Principal Rick Harrmann with a $10,000 check. Players spent an hour manning exercise stations outside for the Ultimate NFL Physical Education Class. Students rotated from lifting weights with guard Nate Livings, to jumping rope with defensive back Leon Hall, to a football toss relay with defensive tackle Domata Peko.

Brandon Glacken, a St. Aloysius on the Ohio sixth-grader, looks to Cincinnati Bengal Leon Hall for jump rope pointers. It was one of five exercise stations set up around the Sayler Park with a designated Bengal. HEIDI FALLON/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Honey roasted almonds make good holiday nibbler If you could see my kitchen counter right now, you’d think I was cooking for hundreds and you’d be almost correct. I’m doing a presentaRita tion for Heikenfeld breast RITA’S KITCHEN cancer survivors for Mercy Hospital Anderson and the theme is gifts from the kitchen. I wanted to give them something to take home, and decided upon my honey roasted almonds and crunchy peppermint bark. I’m in charge of the almonds and Gale Greenburg of Mercy is making the bark. So right now I have nine baking sheets full of honey roasted almonds. I’m sharing that recipe today since it’s a good “before the feast nibbler” for Thanksgiving and other holiday gatherings, along with being my most requested nut recipe.

calcium. If you’d rather substitute walnuts (great source of Omega 3) or your favorite nut, go ahead.

Better than store bought honey roasted nuts

To toast nuts: Pour in single layer on cookie sheet. Roast at 350 until fragrant, about 10-15 minutes. Stir from outside edge into center a couple of times.

Almonds, like all nuts, contain fiber and protein, plus a good amount of

2 cups whole almonds, skin left on and toasted ¼ cup sugar or equivalent substitute ½ teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons ea: honey and water 2 teaspoons Canola oil

Mix sugar and salt in large bowl and set aside. Stir together honey, water and oil in pan and bring to a boil. Immediately stir in nuts and continue to cook and stir until liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Immediately transfer nuts to bowl with sugar/salt mixture and toss until evenly coated. Pour out onto sprayed cookie sheet. When cool, break up and store airtight at room temperature up to a month.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen:

Want a spicy nut? Mix in some chipotle pepper powder with the sugar/salt mixture. Or add some cinnamon for cinnamon nuts.

Overnight blueberry French toast

Doesn’t this sound good for those overnight holiday guests? It’s from Gracious Gifts cookbook put out by Sycamore Presbyterian Church. The book is well done. The church itself was founded in 1798 and continues to be a thriving congregation. I have done several presentations for them and I always leave with a smile on my face. The cookbook is over 500 pages with a nice, hard cover. The recipes go from appetizers to soups, to main dishes, veggies, breads, pastries, desserts and a miscellaneous section that includes beverages and microwave recipes. I love the special gifts section in the back from the staff at Sycamore. This brunch recipe was submitted by Janet Dimitt of the Tuesday morning bible study group, and I think it’s perfect for overnight guests, or yourself! The book is a steal at $20, which includes postage and handling. Order by phone by calling Syca-

Pigs can make adorable pets “Ow, bad pig!” I cried, jumping back as Sweet Pea, the 130-pound teacup pot belly pig nipped at me, grazing my right arm with a surprisingly sharp tooth. “Give her a shove,” her owner, Melissa Kelly of Fort Thomas called out, “Push her around! Don’t let

her think that you’re afraid of her; show her whose boss!” Oh yeah, that’s me. Boss of a pig that only has 10 lbs. on me. I have trouble being Alpha enough to get Nosey, my Basset Hound puppy to sit on command; and that’s when I’m bribing her with a

piece of steak. “Telling you to get tough with her might sound mean,” Melissa explained later, “But it is very important to establish that you are the boss with pigs. It is the only way you can get the dominant effect and that just helps to make

them better pets that have happier lives in the long run.” As adorable as they are, pet pigs Marsie can become Hall very ag- COLUMNIST gressive. Prospective pig owners need to do extensive homework prior to bringing their pets home because they are not easy to raise. “It’s a big problem,” Melissa continued, “The pig rescues are full of unwanted pigs that people have discarded because they don’t have the time or patience to take care of them over the long run. They are cute when they are small, but they grow and can get attitudes without proper training. You have to work with them for their entire lives and that can be up to 20 years.” That said, Melissa is delighted with her porcine companion. A pig lover since childhood, it was her heart’s desire to own one someday. A year and a half ago, her dream came true when she purchased Sweet Pea from a breeder outside of Cynthiana, Ky., for $150. The piglet was five weeks old and weighed just five pounds. “She had never been handled by humans before, so she was a bit wild,” Melissa said, “So, I kept her in a large dog cage with blankets on one end and a litter box with pine litter on the other side.”

Raymond Walters College is now UC Blue Ash and we’re starting an Audacious Decade, offering more advanced programs, better student services and improved facilities – all with the same great commitment to student success that you’ve come to expect.


Sweat Pea is a family pet that lives inside. Pigs can make good household pets. THANKS TO MARSIE HALL NEWBOLD Sweet Pea immediately went “to the potty” in the litter box. It is instinctual with pigs to not eliminate where they sleep. Now that she is grown, she is trained to ask to be let out when she needs to go, just like a dog. Pigs require minimal veterinary care. Their hooves grow just like human fingernails and it is difficult to trim them. Sweet Pea will not allow Melissa to do this, so it requires a house call from the veterinarian. Have you ever heard the expression about eating like a pig? There is a good reason for that. Pigs have huge appetites and will eat whatever is available. That can cause obesity and subsequent health problems. “Their diets have to be extremely limited,” Melissa counsels, “You have to stick to commercial pig food and veggies. Fruit is okay, but has to be in small amounts.” Sweet Pea, who was spayed at the age of 12 weeks, lives in the house with Melissa, along with

her dogs Roxy, a Shar-Pei/ Labrador mix and Pepper, a Jack Russell terrier with whom she cohabitates quite peacefully. The charmingly decorated house is immaculately tidy and doesn’t smell like anything, except maybe scented candles. “Pigs are very clean animals,” Melissa said when I commented on this. “That they are dirty is a big misconception. They also don’t sweat or get fleas.” Besides having run of the house, Sweet Pea has her own bedroom decorated with Melissa’s childhood stuffed pigs. “Sometimes I come in here when she’s asleep and lift up the covers and look at her lying there,” Melissa says with a sigh, “And I think I must be one of the luckiest people in the world to have a pig for a pet.”

Mercy transfers Crosley mansion

Mercy Health has transferred ownership of Pinecroft, the Powel Crosley Jr. Estate, and its surrounding 17 acres to Cincinnati Preservation Association. Mercy Health has maintained the estate since acquiring it in 1999 and had it listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008. “We are experts in health care, not historic preservation,” said James May, president and CEO of Mercy Health. “We recognized Pinecroft’s importance to Cincinnati and the community’s continued interest in the estate and made a promise to care for it. We’ve kept that promise by developing a plan that protects and preserves this unique Cincinnati treasure for generations to come and ensures that it remains accessible to the community.” The plan culminated with the transfer of the estate to CPA Oct. 25. CPA serves the Greater Cincinnati community as the recognized resource and catalyst for the preservation of

"This represents a significant gift to our organization, and one that demonstrates Mercy Health's continued commitment to the Greater Cincinnati community," said CPA Executive Director Paul Muller. "We are grateful to Mercy Health and its board for this stewardship and salute Mercy Health's wisdom and vision in determining what was in the best interests of this historically-important property.” Muller said CPA has created a separate limited liability company with the singular mission of conserving and managing the mansion.

Special spaces fundraiser Nov. 12 Special Spaces Cincinnati has a mission: change children’s lives one bedroom at a time. The nonprofit group creates dream bedrooms for children suffering with life-threatening illnesses. Special Spaces evolved on the premise that children battling life-threatening illnesses need a place to find peace and comfort. The group is working to en-

rich the lives of children affected by cancer and other life-threatening illness by providing a personal space in which a child can rest, dream and imagine, while addressing their medical needs. Every site has a licensed contractor, seamstress, painter and designer as members of a Special Spaces core crew. That core crew utilizes the tal-

ents of volunteers to create that dream bedroom in just one day. Everything is custom made on site to the wishes and medical needs of the child and his or her family. It’s a national organization with chapters in about 20 cities. Like all chapters, Special Spaces Cincinnati relies on the generous support its community. Kristin Siegel, a mem-

ber of the group, is spearheading a benefit fundraiser this month. The event is planned from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12, at the Aston Oaks Golf Club, 1 Aston Oaks Drive. Admission is $25 per person, which includes beer, wine. appetizers and dessert. Siegel says there will be a silent auction, which will include two round-trip tickets to Chicago on Ultimate Charters, a football autographed by Cincinnati Bengal Domata Peko, a whitewater rafting tripf or four, and lots of gift certificates and play tickets. Tickets are available at Information about the group is available at or check out the group’s Facebook page.

Library to host educational session for renters, landlords The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County will host an educational program focusing on the Rights and Responsibilities in Rental Housing at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 12, at its Norwood Branch, 4325 Montgomery Road. This free session presented by Myra Calder, consumer education spe-

cialist with Housing Opportunities Made Equal, will address some of the general guidelines regarding Landlord-Tenant Law as well as some of the common disagreements among parties. “As part of the free services of HOME, we assist people who believe they have faced discrimination in housing,” Calder

said. “However many of the questions we tackle stem from confusion about the line between the tenants’ responsibilities and management’s responsibilities. For example, we often get questions about leases, eviction notices, damages, repairs, maintenance or pest control.” The downturn in the

housing market may lead to more of these issues as more people become involved in home rental, said Elizabeth Brown, executive director for HOME. “With the foreclosure problems, many former homeowners will be looking to rent, possibly for the first time,” she said. “And those having diffi-

culty selling their homes may opt to rent, not understanding that in doing so, they must abide by federal, state and local laws.” During the Nov. 12 program, Calder will present a brief overview about housing rights, then open the floor to audience questions.

GUMP-HOLT Funeral Home A Question To Think About...

No funeral director in the country would dispute the right of a family to specify “No visitation” - if that is the way the family desires it. But, if asked, we are sure every funeral director would suggest visitation in most cases. It has been proven through the years that visitations at the funeral home HELPS the family face the reality of death. It has been proven a family’s grief is lessened by the visit of friends who show concern for the family at the time of death. It is only human to want to express feelings. And this applies to most people. It has been proven that shock and surprise, emotional release, loneliness, distress and anxiety are emotional moods that can be HELPED by the appearance of friends. Words are not necessary. Personal appearance is sufficient. Visitation is an act of kindness... These are only a few of the reasons why funeral directors welcome visitation prior to and during a funeral service... Marilyn Holt
