Committee studies staffing

Madeira surveyed 30 other districts By Leah Fightmaster

Madeira Board of Education’s Planning Commission presented at Tuesday night’s board meeting the results of a salary study it conducted. It surveyed 30 school districts in Cincinnati, also issuing a survey to garner opinions from

Madeira faculty members and staff. Last year school districts gave an average of 1.2 percent increases in salary, but this year the average is about .3 percent. Also, 19 of 30 districts are not giving step increases, or periodic increases in pay, while only three did not last year, planning committee Chairman Tim Philpott said. He pointed out that the move is to preserve jobs within school dis-

tricts, but also to delay changes to the schools in the districts, such as possible program cuts. The trend continues in lowering salaries, and while some districts gave increases, salaries remain mostly flat, he added. “This is an unprecedented time in our sample set,” Philpott said. The study also included health coverage for faculty members and staff, showing that the trend of providing less coverage but higher premiums is continuing,

Grant funds safer routes to school in Deer Park By Leah Fightmaster

Deer Park students who walk or ride their bikes to school will soon have safer routes to travel. The Safe Route to Schools grant, funded through the state of Ohio and the federal government, gives qualifying cities and school districts money to improve sidewalks, crosswalks and other routes to schools and make them safer for students to ride their bikes or walk, instead of taking a bus or relying on parents to drive them. Both the city and school district receive the grant and are required to work collaboratively, said Kim Gray, superintendent of Deer Park City Schools. The city and school district of Deer Park were awarded $293,700, to be received in portions until they have been given the full amount. Some of Deer Park’s intended improvements include lane alterations on Galbraith Road, new signs to alert drivers of possible commuting students, school zone lights,

speed radars on streets to inform drivers of how fast they are driving and bike racks for students who choose to ride their bikes to safely store them during school, said Mike Berens, safety-service director for Deer Park. Along with the bike racks, the school district bought videos and study materials to teach students ways they can safely get to school by foot or bike with money from the grant. The district is also considering buying reflective vests or stripes for adults directing traffic in the parking lots at the schools to wear so they are more conspicuous to drivers. While the grant is for students, the city will use about 90 to 95 percent of it to work on much of the street and crosswalk improvements associated with the project, Gray said. Deer Park City Council, requiring a work agreement with the school district, passed a resolution at Monday’s meeting to allow the city to enter into the agreement and begin work on the project.

MORE ACTION IN DEER PARK The Board recognized several individuals at their meeting, several students’ artwork that was chosen to hang in the board meeting room. January is Board Recognition Month, and the board was recognized for their work for the school district. Students from Holmes Elementary School made the women on the board bracelets in art class, while the men received keychains.

COLUMBIA TWP. — A national fast food chain could be making its Cincinnati debut in Columbia Township. Township Administrator Michael Lemon noted during a recent trustees meeting that Jack in the Box has been inquiring about a site in the Ridge and Highland intersection. He said there aren't many details about the potential move, which is far from a done deal. Lemon said the franchise had been gathering information about the area through the Hamilton Lemon County Planning and Zoning Department. He said the township was notified of this and plans to work with the county to bring the restaurant to the area. "If they've come this far it seems favorable," he said. Jack in the Box has 2,200 restaurants in 19 states. According to its website (, the company is hosting a Cincinnati event in May for potential investors for a site "under development." Lemon said there is no timetable for the potential development, and added it still may not be “more than exploratory” at this point. The Ridge and Highland area is a focal point for the township, which is set to begin working with the Hamilton County Development Corporation to promote the township to businesses looking for property.

Deer Park kicks off centennial planning By Leah Fightmaster

Three weeks into Deer Park’s centennial year, the city is planning its celebration. A committee charged with planning city-wide celebrations met Thursday night and came up with some initial plans for Deer Park to celebrate their 100th year as a city. Councilwoman Chris Hedger said they will plan a parade for the spring, although the exact date has not been set yet, and moving the April 9 city council meeting from the city of-

fice to Crawford Auditorium at Deer Park Junior/ Senior High School. April 9th’s meeting will include small awards, such as the oldest Deer Park resident and person who has lived in Deer Park longest, and is special because it is the 100th day of the 100th year, Hedger said. She added that any Deer Park resident who shares a birthday with the city, March 27, is asked to come forward and will be recognized at the April 9 meeting. Hedger said the yearlong celebration might include a Deer Park Day at a

Reds game, and the committee is hoping to collaborate with the park board on events for the centennial. She said anyone who has suggestions for celebrations can contact her by email at The committee is planning to meet again Wednesday night. “We haven’t gotten as far as planning the whole year, but we do know a few events,” she said. “We want to spread it out and have a big celebration.” For more Deer Park news, visit

New roof, turf in plans By Forrest Sellers

The Indian Hill Exempted Village School District Board of Education recently conducted the first reading of a plan for repairs and maintenance of its Toth facilities. A first reading is the initial presentation of legislation before the school board takes a vote. The board is expected to vote on the capital plan, which details building repairs and other maintenance needs, at its next meeting at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 14, in the high school multipurpose room, 6865 Drake Road. Treasurer Julia Toth provided a revised estimated cost of the capital plan for the 2012/2013 school year during the school board’s Jan. 10 meeting.

Survey Continued from Page A1

73 percent of teachers in Madeira returning for the 2012-2013 school year are eligible for a step increase, which is a decrease from 89 percent in 2010-2011. A slight reduction in staffing and the replacement of retiring staff by lower salary employees suggests a step increase would be less costly for 2012-2013. A 1

The estimated cost to taxpayers is $3.9 million. A significant portion of the costs are for improving heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment in the buildings as a way to improve energy efficiency and reduce costs in the future. This will cost taxpayers an estimated $2.4 million. A portion of the costs for the capital improvements will be covered by the district’s permanent improvement fund. An estimated $1.4 million of tax dollars will come from the district’s permanent improvement fund. In 2009 the district approved moving 1.25 mills of inside millage from current expenses to a permanent improvement fund to be used for items such as textbooks, computers and repairs. Toth said additional funding for the capital improvements would come from the district’s “unencumbered fund balance.” This balance varies on an

annual basis, but is currently about $25 million. This balance is set aside for “unforeseen needs” and can be used to compensate for reductions in state funding and declining property values. During the special session Superintendent Jane Knudson said replacement of several sections of roof at the primary school was also a pressing need because of leaking issues. This will cost an estimated $240,000 to repair and replace two large section of the roof. Synthetic turf replacement at Tomahawk Stadium was another of the upgrades discussed as part of the capital plan. The synthetic turf replacement will cost $600,000. Toth said payment of the costs to replace the turf will be paid over the course of two fiscal years. The turf is getting to the point where its use cannot be extended another year, said Knudson.

percent base increase would cost about $70,654, while a step increase would cost about $87,159 for staff members who are certified by the state of Ohio. Results of the survey sent out to faculty members and staff showed that many didn’t know where to find the study. More than 98 people responded, but an increasing amount of confusion was reflected in the neutral answers provided. Philpott said that while there was more con-

fusion, there were also more opinionated answers, possibly a result of teachers taking a stand after the defeat of Senate Bill 5. The committee made two recommendations, the first suggesting that the board make the results of planning commission studies more available to faculty members and staff by having presentations, sending the study by email and posting it on the district’s website. The second recommendation is to maintain step increases while also providing a .5 to 1 percent increase across the board. While the board was advised to provide the increase, it has the freedom to pursue any alternative compensation instead. Planning committee member Kelly Flick said the lower increase is not supposed to reflect the teaching. “Our charge was to analyze the data, not the teachers and staff,” she said.

Judge rules for BofA Heavy rains, few problems in Kenwood case By Leah Fightmaster

construction manager Audie Tarpley. The amount of damages associated with the counterclaims could have exceeded the amount owed Bank of America. Myers, who heard arguments about the matter in October, said in a 16page decision that the crucial portion of the counter claims focused on whether BofA had breached the mortgage’s terms and rendered it void. The development group’s lawyers charged that BofA ignored “red flags that should have alerted it to problems of Bear Creek and the project,” the judge wrote. The red flags included Bear Creek’s inexperience with such a large and complex

project and that the company was past due on payments for other projects. Myers concluded while there was “no evidence of intent to injure Kenwood Towne Place” by the bank, there were “questions of fact ... as to whether BofA was grossly negligent.” The crucial legal question was whether it was a breach of contract for the bank “to fund the loan even if it knows it is out of balance,” the judge wrote. On this point, Myers ruled decisively for the bank. She also granted the bank summary judgment on the fraud and conspiracy claims. Lawyers for neither side in the lawsuit were available for comment.

A Hamilton County judge removed another legal hurdle that was delaying a foreclosure sale of the troubled Kenwood Towne Place development, ruling in favor of lender Bank of America. The case has been before Common Pleas Court Judge Beth Myers for 31 months, with BofA fighting to foreclose on the retail and office tower in Sycamore Township, and to collect all of the proceeds from a sheriff's sale. In August, Myers ruled that she would allow BofA to move forward with a foreclosure. She also decided that liens from 61 contractors and brokerage firms totaling more than $55 million likely wouldn’t be paid because they lacked priority over the bank’s $81 million mortgage. A paving company has appealed this ruling to the First Circuit of Appeals, which could continue to delay any foreclosure. In her August ruling, Myers cited a 1988 Ohio Supreme Court decision requiring her to resolve counter claims by the building’s development group. Those claims were what she ruled on Jan. 13. The claims included civil conspiracy and fraud charges against bank employees, Bear Creek Capital executive Matt Daniels, his chief financial officer Tina Schmidt and

Filings create surprise primaries Gannett News Service

The filing deadline for candidates in the March 6 primary came and went, with Hamilton County Republicans still looking for a real candidate to take on Democratic county commissionerToddPortune;and a former Cincinnati city councilman ready to take on Republican county commissioner Greg Hartmann. The candidate filings also produced some potentially explosive GOP March primary battles for county commission seats in Butler and Clermont counties; and primary battles in Hamilton County for state legislative seats for both the Republican and Democratic parties. In the 2nd Congressional District, David Krikorian of Madeira - who has battled

Rep.JeanSchmidt,R-Miami Township, in court and on the ballot, filed as a Democratic candidate. For Hamilton County Commissioner, the Democrats have recruited former Cincinnati council member Greg Harris, a 40-year-old West Price Hill resident. GOP leaders have been trying to convince Chris Bortz, who lost his bid for re-election to Cincinnati City Council last month, into running against Portune, but Bortz has yet to commit to the race. That forced the Republican party to file the name of a “placeholder” candidate party finance director Maggie Nafziger Wuellner, who has served the party as a placeholder before. Placeholder candidates can withdraw after the primary and

be replaced by the party until Aug. 13. The Hamilton County GOP is hoping that replacement candidate will be Bortz, a developer who servedthreetwo-yearterms on council. Bortz said he is considering running against Portune but is not ready to make that decision yet. “I’mgivingitseriousconsideration, talking to advisers, looking at the impact on my career,’’ said Bortz, who lostabidforafourthtermon city council in November. In a surprise move, former State Rep. Tom Brinkman Jr., of Mt. Lookout, filed petitions to take on State Rep. Peter Stautberg, R-Anderson Township, in a GOP primary in the 27th Ohio House District, which includes much of southeast-

ern Hamilton County. Brinkman was term-limited out of the Ohio House four years ago, and Stautberg replaced him. Brinkman said in a release that Stautberg “is more concerned about keeping the lobbyists happy (than) he is about serving his constituents.” Stautberg could not be reached for comment, but Hamilton County GOP chairman Alex Triantafilou said Stautberg has “been an outstanding legislator.” “I think Tom Brinkman just needs a job,’’ Triantafilou said. Other interesting races to follow include: » Republican John Williams and Democrat Tracie Hunter - who are still locked in a legal battle in federal court over a 2010 juvenile

court election - will apparently face each other this fall in a second juvenile court judgeship, one to whichWilliamswasappointed by Gov. John Kasich last month. Hunter filed petitions to run for the remainder of the term to which Williams was appointed. The two were separated by only 23 votes in the 2010 election, which is still in legal limbo over the counting of provisional ballots. In other filings: » State Rep. Louis Blessing Jr. is prevented by term limits from running for the Ohio House. His son, Louis Blessing III, entered the race and will face two Republicans, Heather Harlow and Pakkiri Rajagopal. » Republicans in the legislature created a new ma-

jority Democratic district in central Hamilton County calledthe31st;andtherewill be a four-way Democratic primary there. State Rep. Denise Driehaus’ West Side district was blown apart by GOP redistricting, so she moved to the 31st, where she will face former Democratic state Rep. Terry Tranter, Louis Brockmeier and SandraQueenNobleintheDemocratic primary. » Former Cincinnati Council member Leslie Ghiz filed petitions to run in a field race for two Hamilton County Common Pleas Court judgeships, possibly endangering a Republican incumbent, Dennis Helmick. In addition to Helmick and Ghiz, Democratic incumbent Nadine Allen and Democrat challenger Mark B. Weisser are running.

Hunters kill 209 deer in Indian Hill By Rob Dowdy

Approximately 215 hunters registered in Indian Hill have killed 209 deer so far this deer-hunting season, according to police. Last year’s mark of 292 deer killed is still within reach, according to Indian Hill Rangers Detective Shawn Perdue, who manages the program. “It’s right on track compared to where I thought we’d be,” he said. The deer culling program, meant to curb the deer population in Indian Hill, has been successful,

though the village stopped its annual deer count in 2009 due to budget concerns. Perdue said there are correlations between the number of deer killed, the number of hunters and the remaining deer. He said if the number of deer killed remains at approximately 300 and the number of hunters remains at approximately 215, then the number of remaining deer should be a little more than 300. “There’s definitely a pattern,” Perdue said. The deer culling program was established in 2000 to reduce the deer

Teacher connects retirees, MND students Part of life-long engagement

Mount Notre Dame High School partnered with the Council for Life-Long Engagement (CLLE) Program in an effort to change students' opinions of the elderly. CLLE was founded by the vice president of Episcopal Retirement Homes, Laura Lamb of Pleasant Ridge, in an effort to eradicate ageism and "elder-speak" in the minds of young people. The program brings residents from local retirement communities into classrooms to share their professional advice and life lessons that come with the wisdom of decades of experience. As a parent at Mount Notre Dame, Lamb approached the administrationaboutpartneringwith CLLE, and plans were soon in the works. Mount Notre Dame teachers Susan Magnus (Social Studies Department) of Symmes Township and Aideen Briggs (English Department) of Anderson Township have implemented this program into their curriculums in very different ways. Magnus invited four residents of area retirement homes to speak to her senior classes about life and job experience, while Briggs combined the CLLE Program with the National Letter Legacy Project.

Mount Notre Dame High School seniors listen to the guest panel from Marjorie P. Lee Retirement Community and Deupree House. THANKS TO CHERI LEHRTER


Recently, Bill Scheriner, Louise Mandell, Henry Wilson and Ted Saran,residentsfromMarjorieP.Lee Retirement Community and Deupree House, visited Mrs. Magnus' Honors Economics class. The panel discussed their careers, passed on knowledge they have gained through a lifetime that hasseensomanychangesinoursocietyandgavehelpfuladvicetothe students who are just beginning down the path to adulthood. The students in Magnus' class had high praise for the CLLE program. Many expressed that every student at MND should have this opportunity.

Not only did they learn from a perspective they don't often have the benefit of hearing, but the students also found comfort in listening to the wisdom passed down from the guests. Scheriner left the students, saying, "Each job is a big job. Every day will be the most important day. But, there will be that one 'holy moment' when you know this is exactly where you are meant to be." Briggs was just as eager to bring the CLLE program to her rhetoric students. However, Briggs put a creative spin on the program and combined it with the National Letter Legacy Project - a program created by Professor Da-

vid Gould of the University of Iowa in which adults over the age of 50 write letters to students answering the question: “What do you know nowthatyouwishyouknewinyour 20s?” Briggs adapted Professor Gould's concept to fit better with her students and to combine it with the CLLE initiative. When she contacted Lamb to see if retirement community residents would be willing to write to seniorsinherRhetoricclasstheresponse was tremendous. The volunteers will be answeringthequestion:“Whatdoyouwish someone told you when you were 18?”

Briggs' students will receive their letters during the last 30 minutes of their final exam and they will then be asked to reply. Briggs hopes her students will learn and grow from this experience and that it will enlighten them on what the senior citizen community has to offer. She also hopes that these letters will touch her students and that each letter will be delivered to the recipient who needs that particular message most. "IamprayingthattheHolySpirit will guide each student to the exact letter she should get; a letter that pertains to her current position in life," Briggs said.

St. Gertrude 4th-graders join Mitch’s Mission Students raise $1,000 for charity

Donate old cell phone and save a gorilla INDIAN HILL — The Indian Hill High School sophomore class is asking all students, parents, and residents to bring in any used cell phones and donate them to be recycled. The Cincinnati Zoo's "Project Saving Species," sponsored by Gorilla Glue, is challenging local schools to collect cellular devices. The organization that recyclesthemostwillwinaprizeof $4,000 for their school.

There are collection boxes in the primary, elementary, middle and high school front offices. Residents can also by contacting andcollectingdevicesfrombusinesses and coworkers. This project is hoping to protecttheendangeredgorillapopulation. Cell phones contain an ore called coltan, and one of the only areas to mine it is in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which

is the center of gorilla habitat. To help preserve the species and its home, students are recycling as many cell phones as possible. There are currently more than 270 million cell phone users in the United States alone and more than 4 billion worldwide. The average life of a cell phone in the U.S. is about a year and a half. The school will be collecting devices until Jan. 27.

Mitch Stone is on a mission…his own in fact…and the fourth-grade students at Saint Gertrude School are helping him get there. Mitch started “Mitch's Mission” in 2010 after being diagnosed and treated for a brain tumor in February 2009. What could have been a major setback in his life has become a symbol for courage and optimism for dozens of others. You see, “Mitch's Mission” raises money to send kids with cancer to Camp Joy for a summer experience. This is the second year that the fourth-grade classes of Susan Fischesser and now Sister Dominica has raised money during their “Make a Difference Day” charity event the school hosts every fall. The class raised $1,300 this year from “Stone Soup” sales and presented a check

for $1,000 to Mitch at an informal ceremony in the school cafeteria Nov. 22. This was enough to send two children to camp. The class voted to donate the remaining $300 to “Cancer Free Kids.” News of Mitch’s condition and mission reached the University of Cincinnati football program—Mitch’s favorite team. School and team officials were so impressed by his courage and selflessness that they named him as the unofficial mascot of the Cincinnati Bearcats football team and led the team out to the field for their 2009 Sugar Bowl game in New Orleans. Mitch and the Saint Gertrude students are living testimonies to what can be done when everyone thinks about others before thinking of themselves. The best way to find out more about Mitch's Mission is to visit and learn how to help sponsor a child to attend camp.

IH swimmers hit their strides CHL meet on boys’, girls’ radars By Scott Springer

INDIAN HILL — As they came off the Southwest Classic meet Jan. 14-15, coach Gretchen Bloomstrom’s Indian Hill boys and girls swim and dive teams began the tapering process to prepare for the upcoming Cincinnati Hills League championships Jan. 27-28 at Mariemont High School.

Indian Hill was 11th overall at the Southwest Classic meet at Keating Natatorium. The Braves were highlighted by Mack Rice’s victory in the 100 backstroke and his winning of the Southwest Classic Scholarship. All that came after a bout of pneumonia. “He took a meet off the week before,” Bloomstrom said. “Con-

In those relays, Bloomstrom was looking to replace the graduated Will Brackenbury at freestyle. Rice’s brother Drew (sophomore) swims butterfly, while sophomore Noah Brackenbury

He’s the brother of senior Hannah and sophomore Sarah on the girls team. “He’s really small,” Bloomstrom said of the younger Vester. “They were able to place in the 200 and 400 medley, which was awesome. It’s nice to have a lot of siblings on the team.” Other individual standouts for the Braves include Noah Brackenbury at the 100 breaststroke. “Last year he didn’t qualify individually for state,” Bloomstrom said. “We’re hoping he can have a good taper and make it this year.” As for future up and comers, Bloomstrom points to another set of brothers in Will (sophomore) and Jack (freshman) Dowling. “Will’s a backstroker and Jack’s a butterflyer,” Bloomstrom said. “Hopefully, by their junior and senior years they can make it to districts as individ-

The Lady Braves finished seventh at the Southwest Classic, including a third-place finish in the 200 freestyle relay. Bloomstrom would like to qualify all Indian Hill relays for state and did some experimenting at the meet at St. Xavier. “I kept my fastest three, Xanna Tracy, Hannah Vester and Rachel McGoff in all of the relays and then I put a different girl in each relay to see where I think they’ll end up in February,” Bloomstrom said. “I have nine strong girls.” Individually, senior Hannah Vester was third in the 200 freestyle for Indian Hill, while junior Alexandra “Xanna” Tracy was fifth in the 100 backstroke. Hannah Vester, despite having diabetes, swam in all four relays and also qualified to the fiSee SWIM, Page A7

Deer Park boys hang tough By Scott Springer

DEER PARK — In Cincinnati Hills

League boys basketball, the standings reveal familiar names: Madeira, Indian Hill, Finneytown and Deer Park. Deer Park? Yes. Under first-year coach Steve Bock, the Deer Park Wildcats at various points in the year have had an equal amount of wins as perennial frontrunners Madeira, Indian Hill and Finneytown. At one point, they were 6-2 and they’re on pace to finish with a winning record. “We’re like middle of the pack right now,” Bock said. “We cannot beat those top-tier teams like Madeira and Indian Hill.”

The Wildcats are beating teams they should beat. Penciling in a win against Deer Park is in the past. “We actually have more wins than we had the last three years combined,” Bock said. “Probably our best game was at Williamsburg (74-38 Jan. 14). That was after Finneytown and Indian Hill in the same week. Indian Hill was like fifth in the city and Finneytown, 12th.” Deer Park’s scoring leader is 6-3 junior Jimmy Hayes, who likes to lurk beyond the three-point line. However, under coach Bock, one must do more than score. “He started off pretty well at the beginning of the year, but he’s started slacking on defense lately,” Bock said. “I had to take him out of the starting lineup a little bit. He’s definitely one of

our better scorers.” Another junior Markus Johnson plays a high-flying game. A talented wide receiver for the Wildcats, Johnson averages around eight points and eight rebounds per contest and has a knack for swatting opponents’ shots away. “Markus actually got all-Ohio for football,” Bock said. “He could probably do something in basketball if he wanted, but I think he wants to play football. He’s leading the CHL in blocks, and I think he’s third in the city.” Bock has only two players on the roster who don’t play a fall sport as Deer Park’s size often requires the sharing of athletes. Among those is starting quarterback Tyler Osborne. “Tyler actually started off as a wing player,” Bock said. “I moved him to the point and he’s running the show for us this year and doing a pretty good job at it. I told him I needed him to be a leader. See WILDCATS, Page A7

Moeller falls short at La Salle

The Moeller Crusaders, No. 1 at the time in the Division I coaches’ poll, lost to thenNo. 3 La Salle in a defensive struggle 37-35 on Jan. 20. The defending state champion Lancers limited the Crusaders to 29 percent shooting on the night. La Salle’s Josh Lemons led all scorers with 15 points. None of the Moeller players reached double figures, with senior guard Jake Cummings topping the Crusaders with seven.

Better basketball still ahead for CCD girls INDIAN HILL — Frank Sinatra used to croon that the best was yet to come. And while that song predates members of the Cincinnati Country Day girls’ basketball roster by about 40 years, head coach John Snell hopes the old adage holds true for the Indians. Despite an 11-3 start to the 2011-2012 campaign, Snell believes his team has yet to play its best basketball. “We haven’t hit our peak,” Snell said. “We still have young kids playing. As soon as those kids start developing, we should start playing a little better.” Snell pointed to the Indians’ most recent loss to Seven Hills as a prime ex-

ample how CCD still has room to grow. But if the squad’s more inexperienced players manage to play significant roles on the team, and the Indians continue to get strong production out of post players Cassie Sachs and Erika Armstead, as well as point guard Ricci Snell, CCD could be dangerous going into tournament time. Sachs has been a force in the paint and leads the team in scoring with 14.1 points and 8.6 boards per game. Despite being a valuable piece of last year’s team, Snell believes his power forward has grown as a competitor.

“She’s definitely improved a lot since last season,” Snell said. “Just her strength and her size is a big advantage for us.” Armstead has also caused opposing teams headaches with her ability to score near the basket. The reigning state longjump champion is averaging 12.7 points and 6.3 rebounds per game despite missing a few contests because of illness, according to Snell. Ricci, who is closing in on 1,000 career points, has also been stellar. With 13.9 points and 3.3 assists per game, the senior has been a key component for the Indians’ offense.

We don’t have a true point guard.” Along with the senior Osborne, Aaron Barket, Adam Evans, Zach Hall, Shawn McCoy and Brandon Reeves also provide leadership and depth. “We have six seniors,” Bock said. “They all play a couple of minutes here and there.” Bock’s recipe for success goes back to last year when he was the varsity assistant and JV coach. Many of the Wildcats’ key players played “Bock-ball.” “Markus (Johnson) and Jimmy (Hayes) and Seth Clement - they were all on my JV team when I started

nals in the 500 and 1,650 freestyle, as well as the 200 backstroke. “She has incredible positivity at everything,” Bloomstrom said. “It’s been amazing to see her grow and develop.” The girls team also has young talent on the rise, including sophomore Delaney Smith who qualified to the finals in the 100 butterfly and could appear in some future relays. Also, freshman Grace Stimson swam the anchor freestyle leg on Indian Hill’s 400 medley relay that finished seventh. “She went really fast,” Bloomstrom said. “Hannah (Vester), Xanna (Tracy) and Rachel (McGoff) were able to help her.” Defending CHL swimmer of the year Elizabeth Heinbach is also in the mix, but her cross country schedule usually puts her behind in the opening months of practice. “It usually takes a couple more weeks for her bet-

at Deer Park,” Bock said. “They kind of understood what I wanted day in and day out. We all get along. There’s no ‘I in team,’ I would say.” Bock also brought a wealth of experience to Deer Park from playing in college at Wilmington, to coaching at Mount St. Joseph. More importantly, the 28 year old played for the late Bill Brewer at Roger Bacon, laying the groundwork for the team that eventually won a state title beating Akron St. Vincent St. Mary and Lebron James. Brewer lives on in the coaching philosophies of Steve Bock. “I took some of his coaching habits and utilize them in my practices,” Bock said. Upcoming home games ter times to kick in,” Bloomstrom said. “She did really well in her individual events and I think she’ll definitely still qualify for state.” As for this year’s swimmer of the year, Bloomstrom likes Tracy’s chances. “She’s swimming really fast and training with the Marlins,” Bloomstrom said. “It’s tough right now because they’ve been training so hard and they’re not tapered.” Bloomstrom also thinks McGoff could be in the CHL running. In the previous two years, the honor has gone to Hannah Vester (2010) and Elizabeth Heinbach (2011). In addition to her swimmers, Bloomstrom likes the chances of her young divers in the coming weeks. Sophomore Cassie Wegryn was CHL diver of the year last season and she’s got competition from freshmen Katherine Arnold and Kara Korengel. CHL diving events take place Jan. 27 at Mariemont, with swimming beginning the next morning at 11.

CH@TROOM Jan. 18 questions Should Ohio raise its speed limit on interstates to 70 miles per hour? Why or why not?

“Yes, Ohio should raise the speed limit to 70 MPH, not so much as to follow the pack as neighboring states, but today’s roads and cars are more safe…it's the irresponsible drivers that cause more accidents regardless of speed.” W.H.M. “It doesnt really matter to me if they raise it or not. If they raise it to 70 mph everyone will do 75 or better. My wife and I go to Myrtle Beach every year for a couple of weeks and it is a12-hour trip. “If we go 70 mph as opposed to 65 mph it will get us there one hour earlier. When you are talking about a two-week stay does an hour really make that much difference? I do think as a society we are always in too big a hurry, maybe we should keep it at 65.” D.D. “I would say ‘yes.’ First, there aren't enough law enforcement people to effectively prosecute people who ‘speed’ by going 5 mph or so more than the speed limit. An observer who travels on our local interstates (like I-275) will immediately notice that there are a great many drivers who break that speed limit with impunity, and yet never seem to get caught. I can't prove it, but realistically, 70 mph seems a more reasonable limit to me than 65.” Bill B. “No, it is not needed and will cost taxpayers money to change the signs.

nation raised the limit across the board it would make the price of gasoline go up measurably. “We have to balance convenience with safety and the public interest. Ohio's 65 MPH limit is not particularly well enforced, and things are working pretty well. People do drive 70, and faster, but they drive relative to the limit. Leave the speed limit alone and keep trying to catch the drunks before they kill someone.” N.F. “Why not? Everyone drives 70 or more anyway.” E.E.C. “OK - the speed limit is 45 mph on Columbia Parkway and Beechmont Levee and everyone goes 55 – 60 mph. The speed limit on the highway is 65 mph in Ohio and everyone goes 75 - cross the border into Michigan where the limit is 70 and just bump it up to 80!” “If Ohio wants us to go 70 mph, they need to LOWER the posted speed limit to 60! Got it??? 'Nuff said.” M.M. “The government would want us to spend more, drive more, and pay more.

Hazing deaths stupid and a waste of young lives 2011 ended with a number of deaths of young people that have been linked with hazing at a number of well known institutions. Robert Champion Jr., a member of the Marching 100 Band of Florida A&M University, died after a football game Nov. 19, a victim of severe blows to his upper body. The death of the healthy 26year-old was ruled a homicide from hazing and the case has been referred for criminal prosecution. His parents, Robert and Pam Champion, have spoken up publicly against hazing and they want to remember their son as a “drum major for change,” whose death will save others from hazing. Mr. Champion is not the first victim of hazing in the marching band of the nation's largest historically black university. The 2008 National Study of Student Hazing by Allan and Madden found that 55 percent of college students involved in clubs, teams and organizations experienced hazing and hazing occurs in, but extends beyond,


slaughter and other crimes connected with Chen's death. Military investigators believe that Chen suffered racial slurs and physical abuse because he was Chinese-American, events which Chen, the only son of working-class immigrants, wrote home about. Danny Chen's dream was to become a New York City police officer after his military service. These are only two cases of hazing tragedies that marred 2011. There will be others if we took the time to look. This toll of our young people stems from a vicious twisting of our societal values. Hazing inflicted because of ethnicity is especially repulsive. Hazing occurs within organized institutions which have the power to fully investigate the offense, punish those culpable, and most important, to institute meaningful changes to eliminate such senseless waste of young lives.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Former councilman says thanks

To the residents of Deer Park: I would like to take this moment to thank the citizens of Deer Park for having allowed me the opportunity to represent them on city council. For two years, I fought for change and reform. While I did not accomplish everything I set out to do, I am proud to say that I served with honor and dignity. I pushed and pulled wherever I could, constantly challenging the status quo. Always keeping before me the question; am I doing this for the right reason? After much reflection, for me the answer was always yes. These are difficult economic times we live in. High unemployment, increasing home foreclosures and state budget cuts will continuetoputafinancialstrainon our city finances for the foreseeable future. As 2012 marks the 100 year anniversary of Deer Park, my wish is that the current city council and administration focus and engage in the reforms that need to take place in order to make Deer Park, The Right Town with a Bright Future for the next 100 years.

Questions for Portman are fair

This is in response to Mr. Oppenheimer’s letter of Jan 11. First, when someone uses the phrase “the socialist in the oval office,” we can be fairly certain that most of what they say they are repeating from right wing talk radio. Second, he obviously doesn’t know the difference between socialism and social programs. He’d better avoid calling 911 if his house is being robbed or is on fire, social programs like police and fire departments might respond. He was responding to Ms. Leitner’s letter questioning our senator on an issue. It is every citizen’s patriotic duty to question the government. Instead, his response was to criticize her, wave the flag and shout, “We’re No. 1!” Inresponsetotheoriginalquestion, Sen. Portman asserted that a tax on people making over $1 million would harm small businesses. While many local businesses have annual sales over $1million before expenses, I challenge Sen. Portman and Mr. Oppenheimer to find a local small business owner who takes home and is taxed on an income of over $1 million. This is an obvious attempt to dupe middle class citizens into supporting an issue that is not in their best interest. Gail Price Kenwood

Girl asks for cure for deadly disease Avery Addington walked into my office in Washington, D.C., and made herself at home on a couch. The 5-year-old from Springboro was nursing a cold that day in March, so I handed her a tissue. Despite having the sniffles, Avery was a good girl while the grown-ups talked. Her mom, Hallie, was mortified when Avery put her feet on the couch. Avery scooted over to get a better view of photos I had displayed of my daughter’s two young sons. “Don’t worry about it,” I said. “I’ve got grandchildren. And you're a taxpayer. You paid for that couch. It’s yours!” Our conversation was light, but the purpose was serious. Avery has juvenile diabetes, and the illness doesn’t go away in a couple of weeks like a cold. Her family had traveled from their Warren County home to the nation’s capital to ask for help in finding a cure. I found Avery to be a remarkably sweet girl – with light brown curls, bright blue eyes and a dazzling smile. It’s a combination that could melt your heart. Yet, this pretty little girl has an ugly disease. Juvenile diabetes, also called Type 1, strikes suddenly. It can lead to kidney failure, seizures, blindness, amputations and death. There’s a misconception that Type 1 diabetes can be caused by poor diet or a lack of exercise (Avery stays busy with gymnastics and cheerleading). It’s actually a disorder of the body’s immune system. Avery will not outgrow it, and she must take insulin to stay alive.

At the moment, the best medical minds in our country are trying to develop a device to make managing the disease a little easier for Avery and her family. I wish it was a cure, but it’s not. At best, it’s a work-around, a gadget – two gadgets, really. One would monitor Avery’s bloodsugar levels, and another would calculate and automatically dispense the correct dose of her required insulin. The device, dubbed an “artificial pancreas,” is being tested now. VolJean Schmidt COMMUNITY PRESS unteer test subjects will wear GUEST COLUMNIST it. Avery, a pupil at the Walter Shade Early Childhood Center in West Carrollton, is not alone in this battle. Nearly 26 million people in America have diabetes, and one out of every three babies born in this country will develop the disease. This is costly. Medicare spends a third of its payments on diabetes, and the overall drain on the U.S. economy is $174 billion annually for medical care and lost productivity. Avery and her mom visited Washington to ask me to sign a letter to the commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, urging the agency to move in a timely way to approve the artificial pancreas for use in managing diabetes. I gladly did so, along with some of my colleagues in the House. We sent the letter in April. Last month, the FDA issued what’s called draft guidance to help manufacturers as they try to

develop and seek approval for artificial pancreas devices to treat diabetes. It’s a step in the right direction. This week, Avery visited me again. She had a smile on her face when she and her mom stopped by my Cincinnati office. They thanked me for signing the letter to the FDA and for having cosponsored legislation in the House to fund research on how to find a cure for diabetes. Avery was accompanied by three other children, who lead active lives despite having diabetes: Nora Loving, 11, of Batavia, a fifth-grader at Immaculate Heart of Mary in Anderson Township; Sam Spears, 11, of Madeira, a fifth-grader at St. Gertrude, and Finn Roach, 15, of Deerfield Township, a freshman at Mason High School. There were a few teary eyes among the dozen adults in the room when talk turned to the physical, emotional, and financial toll diabetes can inflict on families. I wish you could have seen the smiles and heard the laughter of these children – and parents – as the talk turned to things such as gymnastics, running cross country, playing football, and wrestling. Despite all the effort and money put into battling diabetes, the disease isn’t retreating. We still don’t know exactly what causes it. We don’t know how to make it go away. Bcause of kids like Avery, Nora, Sam, and Finn, I will not give up the fight. Jean Schmidt is the U.S. Representative in Ohio’s 2nd Congressional District. Her local office number is 513-791-0381.

Two sandwiches for your Super Bowl festivities The Super Bowl at our house means lots of family and friends gathering round our old-fashioned TV (our kids can’t believe we still have this old “relic,” but no way are Rita we changHeikenfeld ing to flat RITA’S KITCHEN screen until we have to) eating lots of really good food and cheering our favorite team on to victory. I always make homemade doughnuts for dessert. I guess it’s sort of weird to have those as a Super Bowl dessert, but it’s a long-standing tradition, just like watching the game on the “relic.” Check out the recipe for the doughnuts, which I’ve shared in this column before, on my blog: Cooking with Rita on Here’s my favorite game-day sandwiches, which can be made ahead, letting you root for your team instead of slaving away in the kitchen.

A muffaleta makes a great Super Bowl sandwich. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

Muffaletta with olive dressing A bit messy to eat, but oh so good! One loaf Italian bread, sliced into two horizontally. You can use the round or long loaf.

Filling: ½ pound each sliced baked ham and provolone cheese ¼ pound hard salami Tomato slices Onion rings Leaf lettuce (optional but good)


Go to taste on this. If you don’t like black olives, use green olives. You may wind up with dressing left over. It makes a nice spread for wraps. ½ cup finely chopped black olives 2 ⁄3 cup olive oil 1 ⁄3 cup red wine vinegar 2 tablespoons minced onion ½ cup fresh basil, finely chopped 1 teaspoon minced garlic 1 teaspoon dried oregano Pepper to taste

Whisk together dressing ingredients. (Can be made a day ahead). Set aside.

Hollow out bottom loaf, leaving ½-inch thick sides. Hollow out top loaf, but leave sides a bit thicker. Spread dressing on inside of top and bottom loaves. Set top aside. Start layering meats, cheese, vegetables and lettuce, brushing each layer with dressing, until you run out of filling. Press each layer down as you go. Press top onto sandwich and wrap and chill for at least one hour or up to eight hours. Cut into big wedges to serve. Serves 6.

Greek salad hero One loaf Italian or French bread, sliced horizontally ½ pound feta, sliced ¼-inch thick 3-4 tomatoes, thinly sliced Red onion rings ½ cup Greek olives, cut in half with pits removed Fresh parsley, chopped Salt and pepper to taste

Brush both halves with olive oil. On bottom half, lay slices of cheese down the length. Top with tomato, onion and olives. Sprinkle with parsley and add seasonings. Close and slice

into four pieces. Serves 4.

Can you help?

Subway cookies. Sarah would like a similar recipe. “They have chocolate dough with regular and white chocolate chips, and no nuts.”

Update on Lehr’s peanut butter fudge

Sally Kramer wanted this recipe from this Milford deli. The fellow who made the fudge, Fred Humphries, retired and he told me he used a restaurant quantity packaged mix. He’s going to try and figure out a similar recipe and share with us for Sally.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen: Flour power

When a recipe calls for sifted flour, do you sift before or after measuring? I get this question a lot. “Sifted flour” means sift before measuring. When the recipe calls for “flour, sifted,” measure first and sift after measuring.

“We have incorporated considerable new technology in our inspection and reporting processes,” Ingram said. “Electronic reporting and data collection speed up the process and provide the public with information on our findings much more quickly. Our establishments get a reduced

fee structure while the public gets faster access to our reports through our website.” Hamilton County Public Health licenses approximately 2,500 food establishments in its jurisdiction. “This is the second consecutive year we’ve been

able to reduce fees,” Ingram said. “We’re able to reduce fees while maintaining and improving our service. Our cost reductions in inspection and licensing have had no effect on the incidence of foodborne illness in the area, which is the most important measure of all.”

Reduced fees for all retail food licensing Hamilton County Public Health is implementing a 12-percent reduction in licensing fees for all food service and retail food operations, effective Feb. 1. Technology and realignment have driven the cost savings, according to Hamilton County Health Commissioner, Tim Ingram.

a Madeira reader who visited DC in 1954 on a class trip. She kept the recipe: Take 2 pounds small navy pea beans and run through hot water until white. Put on fire with 4 quarts hot water, and take 1-1/2 pounds smoked ham hocks and boil slowly in covered pot three hours. Braise one onion, chopped, in butter until light brown, put in soup and season with salt and pepper. Mary said: “They sure didn’t put in as many ingredients as the Joy of Cooking!

says. Oliver has health insurance that usually pays all her medical bills in full, so she was surprised when she started getting bill collection phone calls. “I called them back and they said I had been turned over to them from the lab for being delinquent on two lab bills,” Oliver said. Oliver says she never received any lab bills so had no idea the lab didn’t get paid. When she heard from the bill collector Oliver immediately contacted the lab.

and car. Oliver says, “I haven’t contacted the lab after I got the last credit report. Instead, I contacted you. I don’t know where else to go or what to do.” So I contacted the company that owns the lab and was told it did what Oliver had asked – that the credit bureaus state she has a zero balance. Because she’s now requested the collection notices be removed entirely from her credit report, the company has agreed to do that as well.

for.’ So they did, and my insurance paid for it in full, and I thought that was that.” Six months after her insurance company paid the lab bills she decided to refinance her house. But she first checked her credit report to make sure everything was alright. She was in for a rude shock. “It shows up on my credit report that I had a collection filed,” Oliver says. She immediately complained to the lab because her bills were paid. The credit report was then changed to show a zero balance but Oliver says, “It’s still on there! They said even though it’s paid it will remain on my credit report until 2017.” As a result of those collections on her credit report her credit score has dropped from 750 to 660, making it much harder to refinance her house. In addition, a low credit score can actually prompt insurance companies to raise the premiums on your house

Summer camps on the horizon at Greenacres By Rob Dowdy

Madeira Woman's Club members who participated in Make-A-Difference Day include, from left: Pat Foote, Shirley Kallmeyer, Carolyn Gauthier and Bev Cloran. THANKS TO NANCY SILVERS

Difference makers in Madeira The Madeira Woman's Club recently participated in its 10th "Make-A-Difference Day.” Members wrote notes, sent cards, and e-mail messages, made phone calls or visited shut ins. The purpose was to cheer up people who have not been able to leave their homes or are now living ina nursing home. A letter in the mail is something that brightens a person's outlook on life at least for one day. A colorful card with a written note is often cherished for weeks. Several people who have had recent surgery were visited. One member took on the role of practical nurse to assist a woman who had a fractured bone in her ankle. Other members ran

errands, washed dishes, put newspapers on the porch for a shut-in or helped in neighborly ways with casseroles, flowers or whatever was needed that day. The club has been a member of the Ohio Federation of Women's Clubs and the General Federation of Women’s Clubs for 52 years. It has 40 members with an average age of 72 years. Their long term project is a resale clothing shop, The Clothes Closet, on Miami Avenue in Madeira. Proceeds from the shop and the annual art fair provide college scholarships to Madeira High School graduates and an adult seeking a college education. The main objective of the club is helping others.

The Greenacres Foundation in Indian Hill is wasting no time getting the word out about its summer camps. For the first time, the foundation is hosting online registration beginning March 3 for its summer camps. Naturalist Joe Phelps said the popularity of the camps led Greenacres to make some changes to make the process fair for everyone. He said many parents were coming to sign up on the first day of registration and not getting the camps they wanted. “Some of the camps do fill up quick,” he said. Parents can choose between nature, art, horsemanship, gardening, water or music camps. The camps range is grades first to seventh. Donna Griffen, a naturalist with Greenacres Foundation, said there are typically no more than 12 participants in each camp

Sasha Nagel, Sycamore Township, makes a mask during the Greenacres Foundation's summer camp in 2011. The foundation is conducting online registration for 2012 summer camps starting March 3.

camps each year, though some of those sign up for multiple camps annually. The complete list of Greenacres Foundation

summer camps has yet to be finalized. It’s expected to be on the foundation website,, by mid-February.

She ng new p atients received her medical degree from the University of Cincinnati and completed her residency at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. Dr. Ruchhoft-Kissinger has been serving the women of Greater Cincinnati for more than 15 years and is the current president of the Cincinnati Ob/Gyn Society.

Saint Gertrude Parish installed a new marquis that replaces the one that had been in place since the early 1960s. THANKS

Dr. Ruchhoft-Kissinger's areas of interest include adult and adolescent gynecology, menopause, abnormal uterine bleeding, minimally invasive surgery and basic treatment of urinary incontinence.


St. Gertrude installs new marquis A New Year always offers opportunities to start fresh. Whether it’s something in our personal or professional life, January helps us all turn over a new leaf to start a new calendar year. At Saint Gertrude Parish, they also decided to freshen up its appearance. For more than 50 years, there has been a bronze sign adorned by landscaping outside the main entry to the church that faced Miami Avenue. Recently, the parish has

erected a new marquis with larger, bolder lettering that is more visible to passersby. The bronze sign was harder to maintain and see from the road due to the maturity of the landscaping. Another reason for the change was to keep the signage more consistent with the on-campus signs that were deployed after the most recent renovations were made to the campus in 2006.

JCC presents ‘The Whipping Man' The Wolf Center for Arts & Ideas at the Mayerson JCC, along with The Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives (AJA), are partnering with the Ensemble Theater of Cincinnati to present “The Whipping Man” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 26, at En-

semble Theater. Discounted tickets are available for J Members for this performance, when tickets are ordered in advance through Ensemble Theater. “The Whipping Man,” by Matthew Lopez, was the 2011 Outer Critics Circle John Gassner Award

nominee. It is the poignant story of a Jewish Confederate soldier who returns from battle to his abandoned home and his two former slaves, who were raised as Jews. As they wait for the family to return, they wrestle with their past roles of master and slave.

Gary P. Zola, executive director of the AJA and professor of the American Jewish Experience at Hebrew Union CollegeJewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR) in Cincinnati, will lead a discussion after the performance. “Haunting, striking and powerful,” wrote The

New York Times. The Associated Press said, “‘The Whipping Man’ marks the debut of a fresh talent.” The Wolf Center for Arts & Ideas at the JCC brings a variety of the world’s finest plays, films and renowned performers to the community year-round. For more in-

formation about how J Members can get discount tickets for Jan. 26, call the JCC or visit their website. All ticket sales are done through Ensemble Theater of Cincinnati. Tickets are not being sold at the JCC. For information visit
