Madeira bike race adds 5k By Marika Lee

Racers compete in the second annual Madeira Centennial Criterium. The fifth annual race will be June 29 in Madeira. FILE

Madeira is gearing up for the fifth Annual Centennial Criterium that will take place at the end of the month. On June 29, professional and amateur cyclists will be racing through the Madeira business district on a one-mile course. All categories of racers will be completing from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for more than $8,000 in cash and prizes. Madeira Bike Race Committee member Heather Sampson said the bike race has partnered with Fleet Feet to increase the athletic and family-friendly feel of the event. There will have a 5K run and walk this year that will talk place at 8:30 a.m.. Members in Fleet Feet’s No Boundaries and No Boundaries 2.0 training programs will be participating in the 5K. Western Hills resident Jean Fischer, who works at Cincinnati Eye Institute in Blue Ash, hopes to improve her 5K time at the Madeira race. “I’m in No Boundaries 2.0 now. I’m working on pace and trying to do better. I just don’t want to do any slower than the last race,” Fischer said. Fischer said she started the

No Boundaries program, which is for people who are in-active or new to walking and running, after her work offered to pay for the program as part of its wellness plan. Fischer said the programs are about morphing exercise routines to best fit each person. She said when she started six months ago it took her 30 minutes to go a quarter of a mile, but now she has done three 5Ks. “My new mantra is it doesn’t matter how fast you are going because you are still lapping the person on the couch,” Fischer said. The event will also have a kids’ area hosted by Pro Marshall Arts that will have activities, face paintings and crafts. There will also be food, wine and beer vendors in the business district throughout the day. A pancake breakfast will follow the 5K to support the Madeira and Indian Hill Joint Fire District. Registration for the bike and 5K race is open until 5 p.m. Thursday, June 26. Registration information can be found online at Want to know more about what is happening in Madeira?

Residents’ input sought on historic houses By Marika Lee

Madeira City Council is turning to residents to ask their opinions on the future of two historic houses. About $157,000 worth of repairs need to be done to the Hosbrook and Muchmore houses on Miami Avenue in the next five years. Madeira City Council tossed around ideas of what do with the properties, which are both leased by businesses. The Economic Development Committee decided that the city will be open to any option, but has started to create boundaries and requirements for lease or purchase proposals. The Madeira Woman’s Club submitted a report to the council at its meeting June 9 outlining why the club should be allowed

to remain in the house. “Many agree that we are the ideal occupant for this location,” said Woman’s Club member Mary Jo Morgan, adding the club is about service and giving back to the community. The Woman’s Club leases the Hosbrook House from the city. The club has used the house as a meeting place and location for the Clothes Closet since 1995. Christine Parker, owner of Creativities in the Muchmore House, said at an Economic Development Committee meeting May 28 she plans to submit a proposal for her business’ property, but has not done so yet. The Economic Development Committee received a report on the two properties from the Hamilton County Development Corporation, which gave suggestions on how the properties

could be used. Councilwoman and Economic Development Committee Nancy Spencer asked council if the committee should seek additional consulting efforts. Many members of council said they would prefer for the city to have a meeting with business owners and citizens, which the committee also suggested, before another consultant was brought in. “I would like to hear from the community before moving to a consult with a disenfranchised interest,” Councilman Rob Steier said. Councilwoman Traci Teist said the city needs to get the citizen’s input on what they would like to see happen to the houses. She added meeting with citizens would not cost the city anything as bringing in a consultant would.

Students win women’s club scholarships By Jeanne Houck

The Indian Hill Women’s Club has awarded college scholarships to one student who advocates for aquatic animals and to another student who is active in television broadcasting. Lydia Grote and John Hooton, both members of Indian Hill High School’s Class of 2014, won the scholarships – the amount of which the club chose not to reveal. “These scholarships are awarded based on academic excellence, community service, high school activities and teacher recommendations,” said Indian Hill Women’s Club representative Molly Barber, who is a member of Indian Hill Village Council

The two vacant buildings that neighbor the southern gateway to Montgomery are one step closer to being developed after the city decided to seize control of the properties. Montgomery City Council agreed to buy 9292 Montgomery Road, the old Chevrolet dealership, for $2.8 million from MCDC Holdings, LLC, at its meeting June 4. The city already owns 9260 Montgomery Road, the old Ford Dealership, which is beside the lot. The city bought that site for $2.8 million in April. Mayor Todd Stein-

sense combined. It is easier to market the whole site as a mixed-use development,” Montgomery Law Director Terry Donnellon said. The city passed an ordinance by emergency for the issuance of no more than $2.8 million in bonds to buy the property and to allow City Manager Wayne Davis to start advertising the lots together. Councilwoman Gerri

Habrison said bids for the bonds for the site will go out June 11 and the city hopes to close on them by the end of June. “This is a lot of money to spend for the city. It is a lot money between the Ford site and the Chevy site to commit dollars to. But, I feel strongly enough that this is a hugely important decision for this property and it is in the best interest of the citizen for us to proceed with this,” she said. The $2.8 million includes the cost for demolition and site preparation for economic development. “The control issue and getting it moving forward was something that had really been lacking and this is a great step forward and getting the ball rolling,” Steinbrink said.

MND student is recognized with human relations award Mount Notre Dame High School junior Sydney Armstrong of Deer Park was awarded the Simon Lazarus Jr. Human Relations Award for her passion and dedication to community service. This is an annual award that is given to high school students who are compassionate in their service work and who organize their classmates in serving the community. Sydney was first chosen as one of five junior finalists out of more than 60 nominations, and was declared the overall junior winner. Thomas More College President David Armstrong, presented her the award – Reds’ tickets, a cash prize and two books. Mr. Armstrong also added that if she, or any of the fi-

nalists chose to attend their college, they would be offered a $15,000 scholarship. “It was an honor to have been nominated for the Human Relations Award, and an even greater honor to receive the award. As most high school students, I became aware that constantly making decisions, big and small, can shape the rest of our lives. Each choice we make can affect our future, our impact on society, and the way others perceive us. For me, this decision was, and always will be service work,” Sydney Armstrong said. “We are so proud of Sydney for all her accomplishments and her passion for serving others,” MND Head of School Larry Mock said.

SPORTS Deer Park softball team continues CHL title streak

A8 • SUBURBAN LIFE • JUNE 18, 2014

Editor: Melanie Laughman,, 513-248-7573




By Scott Springer

DEER PARK — As expected, Deer Park High School’s girls softball team won another Cincinnati Hills League title this season. What was unexpected was a first-round loss in the tournament, coinciding with the completion of all of their league games. That meant the Lady Wildcats were finished and ready to turn their uniforms in before the second week of May had concluded. “This was a strange year,” coach Bill Newton said. “We were supposed to win the league and we did. That’s about what you can say about our season.” Since the inception of the CHL, Deer Park has racked up nine league titles, including five under Newton and three of the last four. They were 17-7 this season and 22-3 in 2013 which was a new school record in wins. From the current group, only Sara Kramer, Alexis Noland and Anna Klunk move on. Kramer set a school record in pitching wins in 2013, but gave way this season to freshman Jenna Shepherd. Shepherd led the CHL in wins with 13 and was third in strikeouts in her first varsity season. She’ll be relied upon again as a sophomore. “She definitely will be next year,” Newton said. “We have a seventh-grader going into eighth who’s a pretty good pitcher. If Jenna had her way she’d go to first base when (Lacey) Chadwell graduates.” Deer Park has a well-established pipeline of players who often begin as early as age 4. That’s how the veteran coach knows who is on the way. As for Noland, she missed her senior season due to an ACL tear. With her, a good season may have been better. “She had five home runs in 2013 and was an experienced third baseman,” Newton said. “She knew the pressures of a league run. We put Kenzie Sawyer in, a freshman who had never played third. She did a pretty good job.” Other key returning players are on the verge of several records, including lead-off hitter Ceara Trust. The center fielder already is the school’s all-time hit leader through three seasons. Short-

Coach Bill Newton’s Deer Park softball team has won the Cincinnati Hills League title two years in a row and nine overall. From left are: Front, senior Sara Kramer, senior Alexis Noland, junior Ceara Trusty, freshman Makenzie Sawyer, junior Hope Mueller and junior Sarah Donahue and back, sophomore Natalie Carnes, junior Kasey Purdin, freshman Jenna Shepherd, junior Olivia Liggett, senior Lacey Chadwell, senior Anna Klunk, junior Samantha E. Wood and junior Miranda Venus. THANKS TO ELIZABETH BEADLE

stop Kasey Purdin set a run record in 2013 and first baseman Lacey Chadwell is Deer Park’s home run leader with a season to go. Right fielder Samantha Wood has the Lady Wildcats career record for doubles and is 11 runs batted in from breaking a school record set by Casey Berling not long ago. Trusty, Purdin, Chadwell and Wood will all be seniors along with Sarah Donahue, Olivia Liggett, Miranda Venus and Hope Mueller. For the time being, it’s

down time for Newton. Many of the girls are busy with travel ball. Once fall arrives, he’s allowed individual instruction with up to four players. That should replace the emptiness of a successful season ended abruptly. “The last three years, it’s been tough,” Newton said. “It’s kind of a yucky feeling. Fortunately, Winton Woods asked us to play a game after the tournament was over and we did play and get a win. When you have a good team, you hate to see them break up.”

Deer Park won its 9th Cincinnati Hills League title and fifth crown under head coach Bill Newton.

Steam rises to top of GLSCL to start season By Tom Skeen

CINCINNATI — First-year coach Brad Gschwind couldn’t ask for a better start to his managerial career. The former Cincinnati Steam player and assistant coach has his guys off to a 4-1 start (as of June 11), sitting in a tie for second place with the Xenia Scouts. “It’s always nice to get off to a good start and the guys are playing well,” Gschwind said, a Lakota West High School graduate. “It’s been a little bit of everything; good pitching, the guys are starting to swing it and

are coming up with some big hits.” After starting 4-0, the Steam’s lone loss came June 8 in a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Grand Lake. A roster featuring 14 players who graduated from Cincinnatiarea high schools provides a lot of familiarity in the dugout. That familiarity is something you don’t see every day. “These guys may not have played with each other, but many of them have played against each other so they know each other,” Gschwind said. “The familiarity with these guys is pretty unique.” One guy who is familiar with

playing for the Steam is 2012 Moeller High School graduate Phillip Diehl. After going 4-1 with a 2.36 ERA in 2013 for the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League squad, Diehl is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA in two appearances in 2014. “Phillip has been great,” Gschwind said, who played for the Steam from 2008-10 and coached in 2011. “He’s throwing well and he’s a nice guy to have on the pitching staff. It will be fun to watch him pitch this summer.” Fellow former Greater Catholic League player Brian Bien (Roger Bacon) is pacing on offense that’s averaging nearly

six runs a game. Bien – in his second year with the Steam – is fifth on the team with a .286 average, second with three stolen bases and his three doubles through the first five games lead the Steam. “He’s off to a real hot start,” Gschwind said. “He’s seeing the ball well and running the bases well. It’s fun to watch a guy who can get on base and he’s doing a good job at it.” 2013 Oak Hills High School graduate Jake Richmond is in his first year with the Steam after hitting .210 and driving in 10 runs during his freshman campaign for the University of Cincinnati.

In 21 at-bats for the Steam, Richmond is hitting .238 but is tied for the league lead with five RBI and has three extra base hits on the season. “He’s had some big hits for us,” Gschwind added. “He’s swinging it well and driving the ball a little bit. I think he’s going to have a good summer for us.” As for staying hot over the final month and a half of the season, Gschwind knows what he has to do. “Just let the guys play,” he said. “They’re here to play, so I’ll just get out of the way and let them play.”

Deer Park names (another) new basketball coach Submitted by Elizabeth Beadle

DEER PARK — Deer Park announced Adam Gergen as the new Deer Park High School varsity basketball coach. “A few weeks ago, our previous hire for the varsity coaching position-Chad Cornelius--decided to stay at his current teaching position. Fortunately, things have a way of working out because Adam Gergen began searching for a new position around that same time,” said Jeff Langdon, Superintendent at Deer Park Community City School District. “Adam isn’t new to Deer Park, having been the assistant varsity basketball coach 11 years ago, but he brings

with him new ideas for our basketball program.” A graduate of Walnut Hills High Gergen School, Gergen played four years of basketball for Thomas More College. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in communication, Gergen obtained his Master of Education degree from Xavier University. For the past 10 years, Gergan has served as the varsity assistant basketball coach at Winton Woods. “I am very excited about becoming part of the Deer Park family--to have the opportunity to

help students reach their full potential on and off the court is a responsibility I take very seriously,” said Gergen. As the new varsity head coach, Gergan also looks forward to building relationships with the Deer Park community, staff, and students. This is timely since the district aims to strengthen both its athletic program and its presence in the Cincinnati Hills League (CHL). “We will base (the Deer Park basketball) program on relationships and a willingness to help others. We will defend, rebound, and share the ball offensively and we will prioritize in that order,” concluded Gergen.

What I learned during 40 years as a classroom teacher When the last strains of “Pomp and Circumstance” fade away this June, I will be ending my 40-year career as a high school teacher. Just about everyone has an opinion about teaching and what goes on in our schools these days. Some of these opinions are, to speak euphemistically, rather fanciful. In reflection on my own classroom experiences during this wonderful phase of my life, I’ve jotted down a few thoughts I am taking with me into the future. These are some thoughts arising from four decades in the trenches. » Many of those who “know all about teaching” either haven’t done it or haven’t done it very well. Teaching presents a unique and daunting set of challenges. Over the years, I have taught alongside a number of people who entered the field

of education after careers in other lines of work. Some have done amazingly well; others have bombed. Those who Tom have done well Geier COMMUNITY PRESS told me that they had nevGUEST COLUMNIST er dreamed how much continuing effort and dedication it took to run a successful classroom. » There are some prisoners who can’t be rehabbed, there are some patients who can’t be saved, and (unfortunately) there are some students who can’t be taught – at least not at the moment you are trying to teach them. Teachers and school staffs often beat themselves up when they can’t reach a certain student or when a group

of students rejects their efforts. That attitude is nonproductive and unrealistic, especially given the distractibility of todays’ young people and the obstacles that some of them face. As Hamlet said, “The readiness is all.” » It’s more important for students to have a high opinion of you 10 or 20 years after graduating than to love you right now. Sometimes the seed of what you planted just needs different soil to sprout and mature. The passage of time usually helps former students understand what they learned during their time with you. Often the harsh realities of adult life will lead them to this re-assessment. » Teaching is one of few professions in which the professional is asked to work with multiple clients simultaneously.

How would you like to walk into your physician’s treatment room for that annual physical and find 20 other patients sitting there for the same procedure? Enough said? » A corollary: Size does matter – class size, that is! » Ideally, learning should be a 50/50 proposition with those in the seats doing their half. Sometimes the classroom is more like a bad marriage in which one partner (i.e. the teacher) must do 80 percent or 90 percent to keep things going. My toughest teaching assignments were these latter ones. They would physically and mentally wear me out. They would cause me to question my choice of career. I fear that we lose too many well-intentioned souls to other professions this way. » When teachers get frus-

CH@TROOM June 4 question What do you think about the push for a federal minimum wage increase to $10.10 from $7.25 an hour?

“This may be a surprise to many of the low-information voters in this region – but the increase in minimum wage is part of the plan to stave off bankruptcy of America. You see that – as in our past history – wage levels are dependent and relative to all income levels. The government(s) raises the ‘minimum wage’ and as a result all wages are raised. (Relatively, the poor have more money, but do not increase their purchasing power). “You cannot legislate the natural law of economics. The U.S. government is spending $400 billion an hour more than it is taking in. The $17 trillion in debt – at this level can never be repaid. The secret plan of the government is to ‘inflate’ all wages so that tax revenues will be substantially inflated. “You see, if you inflate wages and therefore taxes, in 10 years you can pay off every old $100,000 with only the new $10,000 of current dollar value. Because in 10 years the value of the dollar will be worth only 10 cents. To pull off this scheme, the administration and the Federal Reserve, within a few years, will raise prices for everything and may raise the minimum wage to $100 per hour. Will you be dancing in the streets? This is the only way that the national debt can be repaid – with inflated dollars. This is the ultimate scam on American citizens. This is happening now. “The truth is that a raise of each dollar of the minimum wage results in an increase in about $1 in the cost of living. All wages go up, however, all costs go up – so your pay increase is only a mirage . You have no choice – you must continually increase the minimum wage and the cost of everything so to increase

Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via email. Send your answers to rmaloney@community with Ch@troom in the subject line.

taxes to make this government scheme work..”


“Increase minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10, what a great discussion. Without a doubt, most everyone will have an opinion about this one. I, however, do not. I wish that I were an economist so I could have an informed opinion. Yep, on one side of the aisle (that has become a chasm) there is a constituency some of whom would love to have a 40 percent increase in their wages. Yep, on the other side of the same chasm there is a constituency who might hate having a portion of their wage costs go up by 40 percent. But, what’s good for the country? “I, personally, think that any outside influence that changes the free enterprise system, to make it less than free enterprise, should be shunned. Even having a minimum wage requirement does exactly that. An employer who has an employee who shows up to work, every time, as scheduled and, when working, does everything that they can to promote their employer’s business can’t afford to pay that exemplary employee more because they have to pay the employee who barely shows up and breathes the air $7.25. So, the free enterprise system can’t work, the way it’s supposed to, because of the non-free part of it. So, what could increasing the minimum wage do for us, in general?



A publication of

Well, those making minimum wage would see a temporary increase in their take-home. “That, of course, would be quickly offset by the fact that the employers would increase prices to make up or that increase in employment costs. (Does anyone actually believe that those funds would come out of nowhere?) Everyone else would, also, get to pay those higher prices and share the burden of the decision made by our government. So, effectively, a bunch more American resources would be moved \around and shifted from someone to someone else. Here’s where the economists come in. Economists: What’s good for America? Does it make any sense to continue to shift resources around like this? “To heck with the politics, for a change, what’s good for the country?”

Joe Hamburg

“In economic terms, wages simply are the price of labor. Prices are set by supply and demand. As long as there are people willing to take jobs at low wages, the price of labor will remain low. No employer is able to force a person to work for him or her--people show up to a job every day by their own free will. If a higher-paying job comes along, most people will quit the lower-paying job to take the higher-paying job. Employers face competition from other employers to keep good-performing employees. “The employee has a responsibility to be an excellent worker, and constantly to be looking to upgrade his or her skills – these things assure their desirability as employees. The employer has a responsibility to be a steward of his labor force, every bit as much an asset to him or her as his plant and equipment. Therefore, as he cares for his plant and equipment, he should care for his employees. He must not undermine his legal employees by paying

others ‘under the table.’ The Federal government has a responsibility to protect American citizens (both employers andemployees) from unfair price (wage) competition by ‘undocumented’ workers who will take jobs at low rates and not complain for fear of being deported. These things being considered, there is no need artificially to set wages at a $10.10 minimum.”

Randy Kleine

“Wages are based on the simple law of economics: supply versus demand. When an employer seeks to fill an opening he determines the level of work output the new employee is expected to perform, he then looks at the pool of qualified workers available in his market and gauges the salary upon that. If his wages aren’t adequate to attract a worker capable of performing at the level he requires, he further determines whether to pay a higher wage or pursue an alternative course of action including not hiring an additional worker. “For the Federal government to say the minimum wage in New York City should be the same in Cincinnati and/or Batavia doesn’t take local conditions into account. Factoring in the high cost-ofliving in New York would mean if NYC workers are happy, the Batavia workforce would be elated. Conversely, a wage that satisfied the minimum requirements in Batavia wouldn’t motivate a New Yorker to bother applying. Our federal government should allow that law of economics continue unchanged.

Hometown service? Better not bank on it

I will not list 10 items I think are cute, smart or dumb. I’ll confine this article to the gouging of the public by the banks of this country. If you are overdrawn on your account and don’t find out until you’ve made a few more purchases, your Bill bank will charge you $35 Damsey COMMUNITY PRESS or more for GUEST COLUMNIST each transaction. Most will keep paying your charges and keep charging $35 for each one. Case in point. I discovered my credit card was missing and alerted the bank too late to save what small amount of cash I keep on hand in my checking account. The person who used it apparently was trying to see if the card was good to use. He/she charged an item at a drug counter for $2.18. I was charged the $2.18 plus $37 surcharge. He/she did this 16 times and each time the bank paid the charge and then added $37 surcharge to my account. I wound up owing the bank over $700 in fees. Their answer. “You were told abut this.” Really? When? A friend wired the bank the money to cover this amount and I will repay her when I sell some stock this week. The money was there in less than 30 seconds. That person was charged $25 by her bank to send the money.I was charged $15 for receiving it. These people have devised every low ball trick to get our hard-earned money. Bill Damsey is a resident of Deer Park.

‘Simple is better when you have the best ingredients’ Many of you are aware that I have a community access TV show on Union Township cable. We tape the show once, no script and no-redos. It’s called “Love Starts in the Kitchen,” but I jokingly call it reality cooking. True, it’s like cooking with me in my own kitchen, mistakes, successes and everything in beRita tween. Heikenfeld I often RITA’S KITCHEN have guests on the show, and today I’m sharing recipes from two recent cooking buddies: Jimmy Bonaminio and Keith White. Jimmy is the creative and marketing guru at Jungle Jim’s stores. He and I work together at the Eastgate location. Jimmy made seasonal dishes for summer entertaining: Jungle’s fresh pasta that took only a couple minutes to cook with a sauce of fresh basil, tomatoes, garlic, onions and extra virgin olive oil. He topped it with a shower of Parmesan Reggiano. Jimmy’s a stickler for high quality ingredients. As he was saying when he was making a Caprese salad, “Simple is better when you have the best ingredients.” I agree and I think you will, too. Check out the salad in the photo.

plished Indian chef. Back in the ’90s, he owned Madras Masala Bistro, an authentic Indian restaurant. It was rated in the top 20 restaurants by Cincinnati Magazine. Keith is one of the go-to persons at Heart-Savers of Cincinnati, a non-profit organization dedicated to education about heart disease and saving lives. Keith loves to cook healthy Indian foods, and is a walking encyclopedia on the subject. He shared recipes for a tasty chicken curry, spicy spinach and this fragrant, good-for-you rice pilaf. Keith used a rice cooker, but you can use a pan on the stove, following directions on the package. I’d remove the cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and bay before eating. 2 cups of long grain Basmati rice, rinsed twice and strained 5 tablespoons of vegetable oil 1 medium diced onion 1 stick of cinnamon 3 cloves 3 cardamom pods 2 bay leaves 6-8 leaves of fresh mint Salt to taste 5 tablespoon of green peas (he used frozen, thawed - you could use more) Chopped cilantro for garnish Add 3 cups cold water to strained rice, then add

Jimmy Bonaminio’s Insalata Caprese


You don’t have to be a gourmet cook to produce stunning results. All Jimmy did was lay some leaf lettuce on a platter, and topped it with very thick slices of fresh mozzarella (a key to good Caprese salad) and beefsteak tomatoes. Then he drizzled on a bit of extra virgin olive oil and added salt, freshly ground pepper, and fresh basil.

oil, onion, cinnamon, cloves, cardamoms, bay, mint and salt. Cook in rice cooker. When rice is done, after 5 minutes toss contents onto platter and add peas. Toss hot rice over peas and they will cook in the residual heat. Garnish with cilantro and serve. You can add freshly sliced tomatoes as a garnish, too.

How can you tell the difference between peppermint and spearmint? Peppermint has lanceshaped darker green leaves while the rounder leaves of spearmint are more of a grayish green color. Peppermint is more

medicinal and stronger in flavor than spearmint. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator, Jungle Jim’s Eastgate culinary professional and author. Find her blog online at Email her at columns@community with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line. Call 513-248-7130, ext. 356.

Volunteer with the Girl Scouts Girl Scout volunteers introduce girls to new experiences that show them they’re capable of more than they ever imagined. Volunteers are girls’ cheerleaders, guides and mentors, helping girls develop skills and confidence that last a lifetime, and help girls get so excited about their future that they can hardly wait for it. Girl scout volunteers are role models. They teach girls something new, what’s possible and help them shine.

Kara Baily, a University of Cincinnati student, has been a Girl Scout volunteer since 2010. She has facilitated several Art and Drama series, and volunteers at a day camp. She said, “I love being able to give girls the opportunity to learn outside the classroom and have fun at the same time. Girl Scouts teaches kindness, honesty, and fairness, among other things. I signed up to volunteer with Girl Scouts to fulfill service requirements. After my first series, I

realized it was less about completing requirements and more about finding something meaningful to do. I cannot imagine a better way to spend my time.” Katie Hamm, an IT project manager at General Electric, agrees. Having been a Girl Scout growing up, she jumped at the opportunity to become a series volunteer, which she’s been for two years. She has facilitated two different series, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and Financial Lit-

eracy. “What I enjoy most, beside the constant smiles and fun, is observing the girls learn to think outside the box. Watching them have that ‘ah-ha’ moment brings me so much joy. I can make a positive impact on their life and teach them important topics, in a fun way! Girl Scouts provides all the materials; it’s an easy and shortterm commitment,” Hamm said.

Deer Park’s Barnes builds bridges, helps people cross The people may change, but for Deer Park resident Rhonda Barnes, the sense of purpose never does. Whether she’s helping seniors transition into their new lives at the Deupree House or helping young African-American women navigate life’s challenges, Barnes is driven by a sense of mission. “My blessings come from God. John 15:12 commands us: ‘You love one another as I have loved you,’ “Barnes said. “Helping people maintain selfrespect with kindness and care – that’s my purpose.” In both her job and her community involvement, she has the opportunity to strive to meet that goal. Three years ago, Barnes learned of a nonprofit called the National Coalition of 100 Black Women Inc., and its mission spoke to her. “I was so impressed by their agenda to advocate on behalf of at-risk young women of color,” she said. She worked to launch a Cincinnati chapter that would help girls and young women right here in her city, and the local group was chartered in November 2012 under the national umbrella. It works with at-risk females from junior high through the end of college, offering everything from mentorship and tutoring to career guidance and financial education. Her impact on the community has earned Barnes recognition in the 2014 Nefertiti Awards, one of 10 honorees in the upcoming 15th annual event on June 7. Named after the ancient African queen, the Nefertiti Awards call attention to the meaningful works of accomplished AfricanAmerican women in Cincinnati. “I didn’t expect this,” Barnes said of the award. “I’m so honored to be among the other women; they are extraordinary.” Being surrounded by interesting, caring women is nothing new for Barnes. As the president of the Cincinnati chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, she gets to join forces with the nonprofit’s 40 members and share in many great experiences with the young women they serve. Focusing on inner-city areas where she sees so much need, Barnes and NCBW launched six key programs: health awareness; a networking program called Sisters Connecting; education and mentoring; political programming; financial empowerment; and DEBS, which exposes the young women to new experiences like a visit to the Ohio Statehouse. Barnes has been strategic about aligning the efforts of NCBW with Cincinnati’s power brokers, pooling resources or working together with other nonprofits, city departments, local community leaders, activists and citizens. Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley says, “I

was so pleased to learn that Rhonda was selected for the Nefertiti Award. I have known Rhonda for awhile, and she gets things done. More importantly, her sparkling personality inspires and motivates others. Her work with the National Coalition of100 Black Women is a great help in uplifting our community and making it a better place to live.” The NCBW group is currently combining efforts with the local chapter of the American Diabetes Association to educate girls on risk factors and healthy behaviors – one of a series of health symposiums it has presented on topics from HIV/AIDS to depression. It also partners with the Public Library of Greater Cincinnati and Hamilton County to present workshops on self-esteem. It has hosted a political forum at the Urban League and a financial boot camp at the United Way, called My Sisters Keeper. Another successful partnership has been with the Cincinnati Police Department and the Cincinnati Fire Department. “Rhonda is well-liked and respected. She is a tireless worker with unwavering devotion to her community, exemplifying strong moral fiber and character,” said Erica Burks, Cincinnati Police & Fire Communications. The Cincinnati NCBW chapter begins working with at-risk girls in the seventh grade (“For me, that was the age when I knew I could either take this route or that route,” Barnes said) and continues to work with them throughout their college years. Furthering its efforts to expose the young women to new things and remind them of their value, the group held a debutante cotillion last year. “All six of the girls who attended the cotillion went away to college,” Barnes says with obvious excitement. That is part of the concept she embraces, of providing a bridge to help people get to a new place – to the next phase of their lives. She believes we all have to be a bridge to help others get where they’re going.” The concept of providing a bridge to help people cross over to the next phase in their lives is one that resonates in Barnes’ position as move-in coordinator for the Episcopal Retirement Homes’ Deupree House, a well-known premier retirement community in Hyde Park. When people are thinking about moving into Deupree House with 145 apartment homes, it can be an anxiety-filled and emotional time. Barnes helps them with everything from making sure their new apartment looks exactly the way they envisioned, to assisting them with their personal affairs, to providing resources for downsizing and moving. Literally and figuratively, “I hold their hands.”

Meet and greet for Ohio Democratic candidates Sharen Neuhardt, Democratic candidate for Ohio’s lieutenant governor, and Nina Turner, Democratic candidate for secretary of state, will visit Blue Ash Wednesday, June 25. This free event will be a meet-and-greet, starting at 5 p.m., with speakers expected to begin at 6:30 p.m, at Blue Ash Park at the Blue Ash Shelter, located behind the Blue Ash Recreation Center, 4433 Cooper Road. Light snacks and beverages will be provided, and people are free to

bring their own cold picnic (no grilling). Organizers of the event are Bobbie Kalman, Lin Lyon and Sonny Saeks. “The community will have a unique opportunity to meet these dynamic candidates directly and learn about their positions on key issues for Ohioans such as job creation, education, and issues affecting women and seniors,” Kalman said. Neuhardt is a native of Dayton. The first person on either side of her family to attend college, she

worked her way through Northwestern University, graduating Phi Beta Kappa and earned her law degree from Georgetown University. After law school, Neuhardt returned home to the Miami Valley to start a career in business law with the firm Smith & Schnacke, which later became Thompson Hine. State Sen. Turner was born and raised in Cleveland. Like Neuhardt, she is a first generation college graduate. RSVP to

“hunger never gets a summer vacation.” The Northeast Emergency Distribution Services is particularly sensitive to children’s food insecurity that can increase as early as May when low-income children no longer receive free and reduced meals at school. Not only is the demand greater but consequently without

schools in session, with clubs and teams available to do canned food drives, food pantries notice that intake and monetary donations drop. In the Sycamore community it’s the NEEDS food pantry that serves to help our neighbors who face family food shortages summer, fall, winter and spring. Have you con-

sidered organizing a food drive in your neighborhood? Having a block party – why not place a barrel on your street for neighbors to drop a can or two for NEEDS? Consider making a request of your summer swim club or camp to organize drives and if your church hosts a festival consider asking them to place a container

to collect for NEEDS. NEEDS is a community of 25 churches and civic organizations whose mission is to do God’s work by providing basic emergency assistance. 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, Ohio 45236. For pick-up of donated items or to ask questions please call 513-8910850 (NEEDS) or checkout NEEDS website:
