Madeira considering eliminating the Amazons nickname from girls teams By Marika Lee

Kathy Wilson and Robin Stevenson became Madeira Amazons in 1970. Both played basketball, volleyball and field hockey. Stevenson also ran track, which was the only other girls’ sport offered at the time. For all sports they were coached by legendary Madeira coach Nadine Wilson. A few years before Kathy Wilson and Stevenson started at the school, the boys tried to insult the girls, who were playing on Nadine Wilson’s teams, by calling them Amazons. “It was kinda meant to be a cut from the boys at first, but the girls took it and ran with it,” Kathy Wilson said. Today, the Madeira girls sports teams’ nickname is the Amazons and the boys are the Mustangs, but that might change. Madeira Superintendent Steve Kramer said the district is considering eliminating the name Amazons because of marketing. It is not an attack on the name Amazons, he said. “We want everything to be consistent and to be consistent with our mission,” said Kramer. The district conducted a meeting at Feb. 4 to discuss brand refinement and the possible name change, but results of the meeting were unavailable at presstime. “We want to be consistent with everything. We didn’t go into this just to change athletics,” Kramer said. John Perin, a member of the

Madeira Athletic Boosters and founder of the Madeira Athletic Hall of Fame, said he doesn’t have an opinion of changing the name, but understands why the girls who played under Nadine Wilson would want it to stay. Kramer said he has heard

from both supporters, the strongest being alumnae from the Nadine Wilson era, and adversaries of the Amazon name, mostly current students and parents that do not want to be called or have their daughters be called Amazons.

“It has really run the gamut,” he said. Stevenson said she has studied the historical Amazons and doesn’t understand why anyone would see it negatively. “The Amazons were a strong and independent tribe that suc-

ceeded in a very patriarchal society,” Stevenson said. Kathy Wilson said Nadine Wilson was “ahead of her time” and had to fight against a patriarchal society, like the historiSee MADEIRA, Page A2

Charity initiative is in the bag By Forrest Sellers

Indian Hill High School students are calling it “Totes for Hope.” Students in the school’s DECA program are organizing a fundraiser to help feed children at a school in Bangalore, India. The event will be 2:45-4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb.12, at the high school cafeteria, 6845 Drake Road. The fundraiser will involve painting tote bags provided by a company called My Social Canvas, an online company that de-

signs bags promoting social awareness. Senior Alisha Garg hopes to raise awareness and donations for the Hope Foundation, which is involved with charity initiatives in India. For the past two summers, Garg has been a volunteer at a school in Bangalore operated by the Hope Foundation. She learned about a “sponsor a meal” program geared toward feeding students at the school. It’s trying to make a difference at a global level, said Garg about the event. Last year, Garg and other

students raised several thousand dollars for the Hope Foundation. This year, sheand other students in DECA have organized an actual event to help raise money. “I hope to get a lot of community involvement and spread awareness,” said senior Liza David. The cost is $15, which includes the tote bag and use of painting supplies. Information booths on the Hope Foundation and My Social Canvas will also be set up at the event.

an opportunity to (improve) the educational programs and … allows us to offer more great experiences for the kids,” said Principal Polly Duplace. “Everything we’re doing is going to impact every student, at every age.” Five years ago the school completed Villa Way, a new series of walkways to better connect the Manor House, which is the early childhood and administrative building, to the main school, which has kindergarten to eighth grade. That first phase of the master plan also rerouted traffic around the school and created more usable outdoor space for learning or play, said Diane

Hopper, director of advancement for St. Ursula Villa. For the next part, Hopper said they formed a group to look at all the options and possibilities for improving classroom space. The campus topography, a hilly location on Vineyard Place, was a challenge, but the group eventually came up with phase two and three of the master plan — add to the Manor House and create a separate junior high under the main building, where cars used to travel before Villa Way opened. The Manor House addition, currently under construction, has more early childhood classrooms and functional space, Duplace said. All the classrooms will come out of the basement, which will then be used as a nap space, storage, and a “muscle room,” which is an indoor constructive play space. In addition to the new classrooms, St. Ursula Villa will bring the chapel back to the Manor House, where it originally was when the Ursuline Sisters moved in during the early 1960s. The space is currently used as a Montessori classroom. “We’re very excited to

have all-grade-level masses in the same space,” Duplace said. “We’ve never been able to do that before, and this will help reinforce that sense of community.” Construction on the Manor House addition is expected to be complete before the next school year begins in August, and the groundbreaking for the junior high addition is expected this summer. “We desperately needed more space down there, especially for collaborative learning (because) one classroom doesn’t facilitate that,” Duplace said. Hopper said the junior high area will include open group space outside of the classrooms and, by moving seventh- and eighth-graders to a separate area, it will free up more space for the younger students. The junior high addition is expected to be ready by the 2015-2016 school year. St. Ursula Villa has raised $2.5 million of the $3.5 million needed to finish the master plan, and Hopper said faculty, staff, parents and the community have all donated to the project.

cal Amazons, for time in the gym and equal treatment. Stevenson said many of the times it seems like the same problems are still going on. “If everyone is the Mustangs then the girls will always be under the boys,” she said. Kramer said it might be to time to move on from the name, but the tradition of Nadine Wilson and the Amazons will continue. “She was a legendary coach. We do not want to take anything away from her accomplishments in Madeira

and in girls athletics in general,” Kramer said. Kathy Wilson said she is glad the district is conducting the meeting so those who think the Amazon name is negative can learn the history behind it. “I hope the people of Madeira realize what they have and what they are about to lose,” Kathy Wilson said.

Madeira budget is looking positive

School is targeting relationships By Forrest Sellers

Indian Hill Middle School is promoting the 3 Rs of education. However, in this case, the reference isn’t to “reading, writing and arithmetic.” It’s referring to “rigor, relevance and relationships.” Indian Hill Middle School Principal Josh Kauffman and Assistance Principal Bridgette Ridley made a presentation to the Board of Education during the January board meeting. Kauffman started the presentation by providing each board member with a Lego block. The Lego corporation is successful because it focuses on “the brick.” It’s a commitment to focusing on the brick, a business practice that has been successful for the company, he said. Similarly, the middle school has a focus, and it’s the student, he said, adding that each teacher has been given a Lego brick to remind them of their mission to serve the students. “It’s a daily reminder, something tactile,” said Kauffman. Ridley then proceeded to discuss “rigor” in the school, which involves training in a specific type of discipline in the school. “(We) continue to monitor learning, growth and academic progress,” said Ridley, adding that this year a

focus is also on implementing Common Core Standards required by the state. Ridley also discussed “relationships,” citing the importance of activities such as Teacher Appreciation Week and the recent “No Shave November” in which the male staff at the school were encouraged to grow beards to raise money for charity. This initiative raised more than $4,000 for leukemia research, according to Ridley. She said as part of these relationships, the retention of students, who may choose to attend a different school, is essential. “Loss of students continues to decrease,” she said. The discussion then proceeded to the topic of “relevance.” Kauffman said an activity called “A Day of Brave Ideas” is a day of brainstorming ways to be more effective Kauffman said there is a continuous push for teacher leadership and engaging in professional development. He said this is reflected in the amount of participation Indian Hill Middle School teachers have had in state and national conferences. “It’s been fun and interesting to watch your growth the last couple of years,” said Superintendent Mark Miles referring to the middle school.

The Madeira City Council was filled with positivity as it discussed an ordinance needed because of development in the city and a strong budget moving forward. City Manager Tom Moeller explained the new formula that the Planning Commission developed for determining front yard setback sizes, which is expected to reduce the number of variances the commission grants. The size of the front yard setbacks in residential areas built before the 1971 code was in place will be determined by averaging the size of the setbacks for the four houses to the left and right of the property. “It is going to reduce the number of variances the planning commission will have to see over time because we have lots of additions with all the new buildings we have in town,” Moeller said. Councilwoman and member of the Law and Safety Committee Traci Tiest said the committee reviewed the ordinance and is in full support of it being adopted. Councilman Kenneth Born presented good news to council out of the Budget and Finance Committee. “At the beginning of 2013 we started with $1.9 million as our opening balance. We ended with a $2.1 million,” Born said, adding the numbers are not official because they have yet to be audited.

Born said previous councils have always elected to keep $1.7 million as a reserve in case there is a situation to which the city has to quickly react. The city was forecasted to end the year with $1.5 million, but ended at $2.1 million. “The reason for that primarily was an overwhelming estate tax for

our last year. That was a large portion that kept us from going down in our reserves,” he said. Though the budget is in good shape moving forward, Born said he was still concerned about the unforeseen expenditure that the council was presented with at its Jan. 13 meeting. “We were brought a

$30,000 expenditure that we had no prior knowledge of until we were sat in our seats with a piece of paper in front of us,” Born said in reference to the Madeira Police Department coming to the council to approve the purchase of two unmarked cars for $32,000 that the seller was only offering for one day.

District moves forward on energy projects By Forrest Sellers

The Indian Hill Exempted Village School District is moving forward with several energysaving initiatives. The school board recently approved seeking bids for a central utility plant, which would con-

sist of a boiler and chiller. The board has also approved seeking bids for drilling geothermal wells. Board member Erik Lutz, who heads the district’s Operations Committee, said the Indian Hill Planning Commission approved preliminary drawings for the central plant during its

November meeting. Dave Couch, assistant city manager for Indian Hill, said the central plant was approved unanimously by the Planning Commission, under the condition that it not exceed certain noise levels at the property line. “We are moving forward with final plans and

drawings for the central utility plant which will go out for bid in late December,” said Lutz. “We expect to award a contract in late January.” Set up of the central plant, which will be located at the high school and middle school campus, will be implemented in phases.

wells were a viable option. “The results of the conductivity test show promise Lutz that the wells might be financially feasible,” said Lutz. The geothermal project, which would involve digging an unspecified number of wells, could cost roughly anywhere from $800,000 to $1.3 million, according to Lutz. However, Lutz said, anticipated savings with a geothermal system could range from $70,000 to $90,000 a year. “I think it is definitely a good idea,” said board member Elizabeth Johnston. “We have a payback for the investment.” Johnston said a geothermal system would have “recognizable savings” over a period of time. Typical geothermal systems use pipes buried underground to recirculate air or liquid from the constant year-round temperature of about 50 degrees Fahrenheit beneath the surface into buildings.

The first phase will involve setting up the central plant and connecting the piping to the midJohnston dle school. The next phase will involve connecting piping to the auditorium in three to four years. The final phase will involve connecting piping to the high school within the next decade. Treasurer Julia Toth said the estimated cost for the utility plant is $1.1 million to $1.4 million. Lutz said funding for this project would come from the district’s permanent improvement fund since it would be a capital project. He said the central plant will save about $80,000 annually in gas, electric and maintenance costs. The school board has also approved investigating costs associated with a geothermal system that would involve drilling wells.

Reynolds, Madeira in the CHL basketball mix again By Scott Springer

MADEIRA — Winners of the last two Cincinnati Hills League titles and three of the last five, Madeira High School’s boys basketball team wasn’t supposed to contend for the league again in 2014. Minus several multi-year veterans, including former state player of the year Andrew Benintendi, Brad Almquist and John Michael Wyrick, the Mustangs looked to be depleted. Current senior Matt Ballweg was the only returning player with considerable playing experience coming into the season. Fortunately for Madeira, long-time coach Jim Reynolds and his squad didn’t buy into any preseason speculation. “We knew that our guys that are seniors this year were competitive,” Reynolds said. “We also knew they were going to be vastly inexperienced from sitting behind that strong class.” Reynolds wasn’t able to work with the Mustangs in the summer because of a “retire/rehire” situation. He did keep tabs through his assistants. The return of Ballweg was key as he averaged nearly 10 points per game as a junior. On the other hand, he was also the school’s starting quarterback and missed the last portion of the pigskin season with an injury. Luckily, the 6-foot-1 senior returned in time for hoops season, but Reynolds also lost another key player in senior Jewels Edmerson. The CHL’s leading rusher in football was also injured late in the fall. Edmerson missed Madeira’s playoff game in addition to being out for basketball. “To lose him for an entire season was a real big hit for us,” Reynolds said. “He was a real hard-nosed, tough guy. He could guard multiple positions and rebound it out of his area.” As Madeira often does with multi-sport athletes, it was a proverbial “next man in.” Just as they did in football, senior Grant Hopewell and junior Colin Voisard stepped in. So did senior soccer player Aaron Blackwelder and junior golfer/

tennis player Travis Freytag. “We start a little slower because those guys are involved in all sports,” Reynolds said. “These guys transfer their championship and high work ethic qualities. They slide right into basketball and a few weeks into it, they’re going strong.” Other new starters for Madeira are senior Jake Schweppe and 6-foot-6 senior Sam Frayer. Frayer had barely played as an eighth-grader, played some the next two years and then was somewhat lost on varsity last season. He picked the right year to awaken, as far as Reynolds is concerned. “In our preseason scrimmages, Sam was really good,”

Reynolds said. “When the season started, the bright lights came on.” Frayer has had highs of 23 points and 13 rebounds this season, and the veteran coach has been able to cultivate a toughness that some thought had graduated last June. “I’m not ready to claim we’re a championship team,” Reynolds said. “We’re trending. They’re all extremely coachable. You see the by-product of those things as you get deeper into the season.” Madeira wraps the regular season with home games, Feb. 7 against Mariemont, Feb. 8 against Badin and what could be a knockdown thriller Feb. 14 against Indian Hill.

Indian Hill girls offer triple threat BY SCOTT SPRINGER

INDIAN HILL — A year ago, armed with two scorers he was pretty familiar with, Indian Hill High School girls basketball coach Chris Arington was gearing up for the postseason. Arington’s daughters, Jessica and Samantha (a/k/a Sam), led the Lady Braves last season at 11 points per game apiece. This winter, sophomore Sam and senior Jessica are still scoring, but the arsenal has a third option now. Freshman guard Ellie Schaub stepped in to lead the team in scoring at nearly 14 points per game, with a high of 25. “The second time we’ve played people in the league, they kind of know they need to prepare for her,” Arington said. “She had a great beginning of the year and teams are now looking for her. She’s got to be a little more patient.” Patience has helped Schaub at least in one part of her game: Free throws. From Jan. 4-9, the

freshman made 24 consecutive charity stripe shots. In an early win over Wyoming Dec. 14, she scored 16 of her 20 points from the line. The 5-foot-6 foul-shooting frosh gets her points by being skilled at pilfering the pumpkin. Twice this season, she’s had nine steals. “She’s at her best in transition,” Arington said. “When we can score, we can set up our defense, get steals and turnovers and get in transition.” The byproduct of Schaub’s presence has been increased points for last season’s top gun, Sam Arington. Her average is up a couple of points at 13 points per contest. “It definitely has freed up the whole team,” Arington said. “The other teams can’t key on one player.” With the added dimension of speed, Indian Hill can give opponents extra headaches. Schaub and both Aringtons produce inside and outside and senior Jessica Arington hits 84 percent from the line. Inside, Lexi Carrier is a threat around the

glass and senior Jessica Marsh can score if needed. Teams have taken note of the diversity of the Lady Braves. “Last year every team played us man-to-man, this year

everyone plays us zone,” Arington said. “We have basically five guards on the floor who are mobile and very good with the ball.” With teams “packing it in” the Lady Braves have patiently zipped the ball around the perimeter and often found the easy bucket. After they score, they pressure the ball and would lead the Cincinnati Hills League in floor burns if it were a statistical category. “That’s something we try to emphasize,” Arington said. “As small as we are, you can’t play timid.” Chris Arington’s crew is near the top of the CHL standings despite a recent tough loss to Wyoming Jan. 27. “The game got delayed and we weren’t able to get in the gym over the weekend,” Arington said. “They played a great game and beat us at their place.” Before any tournament run, Indian Hill must finish the CHL slate.

CINCINNATI — – The annual Archbishop Moeller High School Sports Stag is Thursday, Feb. 20, at Moeller’s Brisben Center (gymnasium). This year Moeller celebrates its success in basketball and features Clark Kellogg as its guest speaker. Kellogg is a TV color analyst and receives national notoriety for his work on college basketball telecasts. In July 2010 he was named vice president of player relations for the Indiana Pacers. He has done television commentating for Cleveland State University, the Big East Television Network, and ESPN. In December 2008 he became the lead analyst for the CBS coverage of college basketball after serving as a game and studio analyst for over a decade. He was the lead studio analyst from 19972008 and has been with CBS since 1993. As an athlete, Kellogg was a former first-round draft pick of the Pacers (1982, eighth selection overall) and played five seasons with the team. He was also a unanimous selection to the 1983 NBA All-Rookie Team. Chronic knee problems forced him to retire after career averages of 18.9 points and 9.6 rebounds per game. In his free time, Kellogg volunteers his time and resources to various organizations, including

the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Athletes in Action, United Way, and the American Red Cross. He is a native of Cleveland and attended The Ohio State University, where he was the Big Ten’s MVP in 1982. He received his degree from OSU in 1996.

Where are the Puritans?

In order to move legislation to your viewpoint you have to legislate. No legislation means no movement. We live in a plural society. There are many points of view. You cannot impose your beliefs on the majority; you must sell them on the wisdom of your philosophy. If you are unable to persuade enough voters, then, you will lose. Successful legislation requires some compromise. If you are unwilling to compromise, then, you will need to do what our founding fathers did…move to another country; or, found another country. My great-grandfathers included both Puritans and Quakers. The Puritans left England because they were considered too radical. They

refused to tolerate any dissent. The Quakers were much more inclusive. You probably do not know one Puritan; as, they no James longer exist. Baker COMMUNITY PRESS This is what happens to you GUEST COLUMNIST when you are not inclusive, more open minded to differing points of view and the genuine needs of others. Yet, you can still attend a Quaker meeting, here in Indian Hill. Our Puritan Founding Fathers lived in small villages that were Theocracies, ruled by the local church. Outside in-

trusions, by anyone with differing views, were unwelcome, and could be met with violence. According to Sewell’s History of the Quakers, back in 1662, three young Quaker women, Ann Coleman, Mary Tompkins, and Alice Ambrose came to Dover, N.H. They preached against professional ministers, restrictions on individual conscience, and the established customs of the churchruled settlement, such as the beating of wives and children. (Back then, you could hire a ‘whipper’, to beat your wife and children…what a way to make a living.) After about six weeks of this, a Puritan church elder, “Hatevil Nutter” helped to get Dover’s citizens to sign a pet-

ition “humbly craving relief against the spreading and the wicked errors of the Quakers among them.” According to this Quaker historian, Hatevil convinced the crown’s magistrate, Capt. Richard Walderne, to issue an order to the constables of surrounding jurisdictions. Walderne’s order required the constables ”in the King’s name” to take “these vagabond Quakers, Ann Coleman, Mary Tomkins, and Alice Ambrose,” tie them fast to a cart’s tail, and “whip their naked backs, not exceeding ten stripes apiece on each of the them, in each town; and so to convey them from constable to constable, till they are out of this jurisdiction”…and so they did! Eventually, much to Nut-

CH@TROOM Last week’s question President Obama has said addressing income inequality will be the focal point of his agenda for the rest of his term. What can be done to address income inequality? “What can be done to address income inequality? It's really not that hard a question to answer, get a job. “If one job doesn't cover all your bills, get a second one. I have no problem with people making a lot of money by working, but when it comes to welfare and medicaid for the masses I have to draw the line. “When Obama got elected the first time his welfare state didn't work out too well and this term is much of the same. People we just don't the money for all the give-away programs.”

Dave D.

“The solution to income inequality is the creation of secure, living wage jobs with salaries that grow to reward loyalty, experience and productivity. “A very good place to start would be the repeal of Citizens United. Corporate America is using worker earned profit to buy legislation (Right to work for Less) that continues to stagnate our wages and erode our rights. We are financing our own trip toward poverty. “We must use our vote in each and every election to elect representatives who will fight for an amendment to overturn this destructive decision. “In addition, we need to stop demonizing our labor unions. Workers need to organize, regain their voice and remind the nation’s employers that the building of a successful business is a partnership. “Workers deserve to share in the profit they help to generate. Unionizing allows us to regain our ability to bargain for fair wages, job security and the end of outsourcing. “In many cases greed has suffocated any respect that employers used to have for their workforce and, left unchecked, income inequality will only get worse.”


“The short answer to your question about income inequality is nothing or very little. I think the discussion now is really more about economic in-

equality which is a much broader topic and centers the idea of wealth. “The differences in wealth between individuals as well as nations have existed for thousands of years despite all the recent attention. “And, in spite of good faith efforts by various American Presidents, ie. Woodrow Wilson ( New Freedom), FDR ( New Deal ), Harry Truman ( Fair Deal), JFK ( New Frontier), LBJ (Great Society/War on Poverty), it would be stretch to say that any of those programs left a legacy of making a significant, positive, or long term change in economic inequality. “So, what's the solution? There isn't any; there will always be some. Can we minimize it? Yes, we can. How? By educating ourselves differently. More efficiently. “For example, why not reduce the number of law schools and move medical education to places like the Cleveland Clinic or the Mayo Clinic. “In high school, counsel parents that there are excellent alternatives to a four-year degree that will lead to good jobs. Sure, this is long term but there isn't any magic wand to expand economic equality.”


“I have concerns about Obama trying to solve any income inequalities. His approach so far seems to be more government entitlements. He has never had a real private sector job, nor has he run a company. Unless he is creating more jobs than I worry about his methods or success. “His Robin Hood methods (take from the rich and give to the poor) have not worked. Bringing back jobs from over

ter’s chagrin, the Quaker women returned to Dover and established a church. More than a third of Dover’s citizens eventually became Quakers. (Google - “Hatevil Nutter”) Does any of our recent politics sniff of this 15th century medieval-style mentality? It seems that a minority of people, some well meaning, is being manipulated by a handful of very wealthy donors whose only goal is to purchase legislation. In my opinion, they do not have the stated goals of fostering freedom, liberty or prosperity for all; and, they definitely do not believe in ‘free markets’.

seas might be a good place to start along with immigration reform. That is 10-20 million job opportunities to start. “Per Steve Chabot, ‘since LBJ’s war on poverty started in 1964, 50 years ago the government has spent $20.7 trillion dollars on poverty in the U.S.’ “My guess is a large amount of that money was spent for government bureaucracy and more government employees. Obama may soon replace Jimmy Carter as the president with the lowest public approval rating. Go figure!”


“President Obama and his liberal base bemoan the ‘income inequality’ in this country, but their hands are tied to one large group that will keep that from happening. Unions. “Specifically the teachers unions across this country. Education is paramount to closing the income gap in this country. More educated a student becomes, the more income that student will achieve. School vouchers are fought by the unions all over this country because they are a threat to the status quo. “Break the cycle of inefficient/ineffective schools, remove layers upon layers of overpaid do-nothing administrators and maybe theirs hope. But that would take change. Hmmmm, hope and change?”

Businesses should keep the sidewalks clean One of the joys of living in Madeira is that I can quite easily walk downtown to shop or get coffee from my home. I usually walk from my home to the business district daily, at least. The businesses of Madeira are, generally, very good at their storefronts and walkways clean and safe. The Starbucks and Subway on Miami Avenue are two Madeira businesses who do not maintain walkways in an attractive or safe manner and is especially evident after a snowfall. Neither business shovels nor puts down salt or other melting agents to make the sidewalks safe for customers.

During non-snow months the sidewalk in front of both businesses is littered with trash, debris and cigarette butts. I understand that there may be disputes or misunderstandings between tenants and landlords regarding responsibility for maintaining clear sidewalks. It is clear, however, that the environment you are presenting to customers is one of “buyer beware.” Do the right thing and be good corporate citizens, Starbucks and Subway – scoop some snow, put down some salt, and sweep up the trash. Perhaps more people will patronize you. Could happen. Wesley Woolard Madeira

L IFE Getting beds for kids in need SUBURBAN



By Forrest Sellers

HYDE PARK — A Hyde Park councilwoman wants to insure Tristate children don’t lack a basic necessity. Louisa Adams is forming an organization to provide beds and cribs for underprivileged children. The organization is called Beds for Kids Cincinnati.

Adams, who has a background in social work, said Cincinnati has a significant problem with child poverty in which children’s Adams basic needs are not being met. Through her social work, Adams said, “We consistently saw


children without a bed to sleep in.” Beds for Kids will work closely with Families Forward, a locally based resource center for schools, students and their families. “I think (this) will be nicely aligned with our services in meeting the full needs of our students,” said Deborah Allsop, executive director/CEO of Fam-

ilies Forward. “(This) will support their academic, social and emotional growth.” Families Forward will serve as a referral agency for Beds for Kids. Adams, a parent of three, said the organization will initially need to raise about $150,000. This will cover operational costs as well as provide beds for 500 children.

Adams said the children will be given a bed frame, mattress, sheets, a comforter and pillow. The organization hopes to obtain funding from foundation grants and corporate sponsors as well as private donations. For information visit the website or send an email to Adams at

Moeller football honored at state capital


hio State Sens. Shannon Jones (R-Springboro), Joe Uecker (R–Miami Township) and Bill Seitz (R–Cincinnati) honored the Moeller High School football team for winning the 2013 Division I state

championship. The Crusaders beat the Mentor Cardinals 55-52, winning their second consecutive state championship. “Coach (John) Rodenberg’s guidance on and off the field is a huge contributor to the

success of these young men,” Jones said. “This was a big year for the Crusaders, not only winning the title, but breaking state records. I’m excited to see more from this great team next season.” “The Crusaders unwa-

vering commitment and energy, and the dedication of coach Rodenberg let to a record-setting year and a well deserved state title,” Seitz said “As a Moeller alumnus, I’m extremely proud of our young athletes for winning yet an-

other state championship,” Uecker said. Moeller set records for most points scored by a team, most combined points scored and most combined total yards in a Division I state final game.

CSC starts programs for kids Cancer Support Community recently received a $10,000 grant from the Charles H. Dater Foundation, which will help fund special support programs throughout 2014 for children dealing with cancer themselves or in their family. Called Kid Support, the 10week program is a free peer support group for children (ages 4-12) who have a family member or friend with cancer or have cancer themselves. The program features developmentally appropriate content and activities such as artistic expression, poems, stories, cartoons and games to help children feel comfortable asking questions, expressing difficult feelings and sharing common experiences. “The Charles H. Dater Foundation is committed to the children of the Greater Cincin-

nati area,” said Bruce A. Krone, Director of the Foundation. “We focus on providing financial support to programs that serve to improve the lives of children through diversified experiences and activities. This is in keeping with the philanthropic vision and goals of Charles H. Dater, in whose memory we serve.” More than 2,200 grants have been awarded since 1985, totaling over $35 million. According to CSC Program Director Kelly Schoen a cancer diagnosis impacts the entire family and can be especially confusing and frightening to the youngest family members. “We’re very grateful to the Dater Foundation for this funding,” said Schoen. “Children often have many worries, fears, and misconceptions

about cancer and if the concerns are not addressed it can put them at risk for emotional distress, behavioral problems, or trouble in school.” Kid Support begins with a parent orientation session at 5:30 p.m., on Thursday, March 6. Children are welcome to attend and will participate in a structured activity during the parent session. The children sessions then begin 5:30-7:30 p.m. the following Thursday, March 13, and run for 10 weeks. All activities take place at Cancer Support Community, 4918 Cooper Road, Blue Ash, are facilitated by trained professionals and are offered free of charge to participants thanks to this grant from the Dater Foundation. For reservations or more information, call 791-4060.

Cappuccino mocha pudding cake aka Upside down hot fudge pudding cake If you’re making this for kids or someone who doesn’t like coffee flavor, leave out espresso. The fun thing about this is you learn a bit of food chemistry: the hot fudge sauce is poured over the top of the cake batter, and as the cake bakes, the sauce turns to pudding and sinks to the bottom while the cake batter rises to the top! Cake: 2 cups flour ⁄3 cup plus 1 tablespoon cocoa powder 2 teaspoons instant espresso coffee powder 1 tablespoon baking powder 1

Mix sugars and cocoa. Pour water over and whisk. Pour ever so gently and evenly over batter. Pudding will look quite thin but gets real thick as it bakes. Bake 30-35 minutes or until center is set and just firm to touch. Don’t over bake or you won’t get much pudding!

Tips from readers’ kitchens

Tortellini soup update. Sandy, a loyal reader, made the tortellini soup with spinach and used a 19 oz. bag of tortellini and found it was way too much for the quart of broth. She decided to add more broth, which worked. Sandy asked me to specify how much tortellini to put in. I would say start with 2

cups tortellini and go from there. John Pancoast’s eggplant casserole. Mary Lou K. made this healthier by substituting whole wheat crackers for the topping and low-fat yogurt for the whipping cream. “It was very delicious and would make a great main dish, though we had it with trout and considered it our vegetable and starch,” she said.

Non profit communities established by the Southeastern Ecumenical Ministry



Blue Ash YMCA ‘pays it forward’ for NEEDS “Pay it forward” seemed to be the theme this winter starting with the Blue Ash YMCA. Marci Hedges, senior engagement specialist, took it upon herself to find a local charity that was both “in sync” with the focus of the Y and helped those in the community of the Blue Ash Y. As she explained to Northeast Emergency Distribution Services volunteers, “Youth development, healthy living and social responsibility are the focuses of the Y. Our members reside in the area served by NEEDS, but more importantly the mission of NEEDS coincides with that of the Y. By engaging our membership in a NEEDS food drive the Blue Ash Y demonstrates that we are more than a gym; we are a community.” As a direct result of Hedges’s desire to help NEEDS, the Sycamore Plaza Old Navy also collected for NEEDS. This is what it means to “pay it forward,” one good deed leads to another. As a result of Hedges, Blue Ash Y and Old Navy’s desire to serve the community by supporting NEEDS, more families will be

able to feed their children and sustain themselves during the cold of winter. It is the mission of Northeast Emergency Distribution Service to provide emergency assistance to the neediest families in the Northeast Cincinnati community. Though feeding families is the primary goal of NEEDS, during the winter months it also takes up the “call” to provide disadvantaged children with hats, gloves and socks. The distribution of clothing items is done through school nurses at both the public and private area schools. NEEDS is a community of 25 churches and civic organizations whose mission is to do God’s work through caring for their neighbors by providing basic emergency assistance. NEEDS is an all-volunteer cooperative located in the Kenwood Baptist Church and NEEDS does not receive government support. The NEEDS board oversees an active foodbank, as well as provides neighbors-in-need with housing and utility payment assistance. During the year NEEDS supports

local schools through school supply and clothing item drives. NEEDS serves more than 2,500 people in northeastern Hamilton County. Just like the Blue Ash YMCA and Sycamore Plaza Old Navy any community group, business or neighborhood can collect canned goods, non-perishable food items such as school supplies and/or raise monetary funds for NEEDS. Items that are most urgent include: canned fruits and vegetables, beans (with meat as it provides protein), prepared foods (spaghetti, raviolis, beef stews), tuna, peanut butter, jelly, cereal and spaghetti sauce. The NEEDS food pantry is at the Kenwood Baptist Church, 8341 Kenwood Road, 45236 and is open Tuesday and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Donations of canned goods and other items are always accepted at the NEEDS food pantry. Monetary gifts can be mailed to: NEEDS, 8341 Kenwood Road, Cincinnati, 45236. For pick-up of donated items or to ask questions please call 513-891-0850 or visit

Libraries host fraud awareness program Better Business Bureau and the FINRA Investor Education Foundation are reaching out to consumers at several branches of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County about how to avoid risky investments and unlicensed brokers through a series of public forums on the topic. Consumer financial fraud is a serious problem in North America. According to the Federal Trade Commission and the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, consumers reported losing more than $1.5 billion to all types of scams in 2011. FINRA Foundation research has found that

investors are overconfident in their knowledge of financial management, particularly Baby Boomers who are most often the target of investment scams.
