75¢ BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Sycamore Twp. administrator leaving By Leah Fightmaster

lfightmaster@communitypress.com

Bruce Raabe is leaving his position as Sycamore Township’s administrator. Raabe, who has worked at the township since 2010, has been on paid leave for the past month. Law Director Doug Miller said he wanted to dispel rumors about the situation, adding that

Weidman

both Raabe and the township agreed that “a separation is in order.”

He added that no grievance has been filed against him and he’s not under investigation. “This is simply a matter of a difference of opinion of where the township is going,” he said. The Board of Trustees voted Aug. 15 to allow Board President Tom Weidman to work out a compensation package for Raabe’s departure. Miller added that when those details are worked out it will be

discussed during a public meeting. Raabe’s earned $80,000 per year, plus use of a township car, according to the resolution passed by the trustees in 2010 that officially hired him. Planning and Zoning Director/Assistant Township Administrator Greg Bickford has been serving as administrator since Raabe’s paid leave began. Trustee Cliff Bishop said the

board didn’t know whether Bickford would continue as the administrator or if a new one will be hired. He added that the terms of Raabe’s departure could be resolved by the next workshop meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 3, or soon after. Want more updates for Sycamore Township?

Resident wants Madeira to branch out By Jason Hoffman jhoffman@communitypress.com

Kenwood Road construction on time By Leah Fightmaster lfightmaster@communitypress.com

The construction project on Kenwood Road continues, but with added expenses. Superintendent Tracy Kellums said that all the utilities have been put underground, except for the section that connects to the Burger King on Kenwood Road. Sidewalk and curb work is also finished on the east side of the road, so construction on the west side will begin and take about a month. As a result, traffic flow that was previously moved to accommodate the work on the east side will shift, he added. A few unexpected costs have come up. Sycamore

Township’s Board of Trustees approved change orders for $1,600 to move some traffic pull boxes, $17,000 to deKellums molish and replace a dumpster enclosure on Burger King’s property to put power lines underground, as well as $11,000 to buy and install three heavy-duty pull boxes the township wasn’t aware it would need. With the changes, Kellums said the project should still finish up by the projected Oct. 31 end date. The fire department also

MADEIRA — Ash trees are being removed throughout Madeira because they are infected by emerald ash borers and one resident is hoping to do something about it. “When I first moved to Madeira there were crabapples in front yards and ash trees,” said Patsy Holmes of Greenbriar Avenue. “Now when you go down my street there are a lot of yards where there used to be ash trees that were not replaced.” Emerald ash borers go under the tree bark and kill the tree quickly. The trees have to be removed, said City Manager Tom Moeller, because they are quickly dying and present a safety hazard. “It’s an unfortunate situation and we’re losing 100 to 150 trees in the public right of way,” Moeller said. “Trees add character to Madeira.” The city cut down 15 trees last year, and Moeller estimates 30 will be removed this year. Thus far, Moeller said treat-

closed its bidding process to sell a 2001 Seagrave rescue truck the township designated as surplus. Fire Chief Perry Gerome said at a previous trustees’ meeting that the truck hasn’t been used in three years and there’s no space for it anymore. Sycamore received two bids, one from a fire equipment broker for $55,000 and another from the Worthington Fire Department for $205,000. Worthington’s bid was accepted to sell the truck, and the department picked it up on Aug. 15.

ments for the borer infestation are only marginally effective. Holmes is hoping her fellow residents will start a tree commission through Madeira City Council to raise funds and plant new trees, but creating a commission isn’t a short or simple process. “A commission would have to be created by legislation of council,” Moeller said. “Council would have to make appointments to the commission and write guidelines and bylaws.” The city, Moeller said, hasn’t discussed a tree commission previously, but if one was formed it would be funded via assessment to residents based on the square footage in the front of properties. Holmes has a pine tree in her front yard and said the lack of trees is about more than aesthetics. “Not only is it unsightly but there’s a lack of shade and I think property value goes down,” she said.

Districts release their own ‘report cards’ Gannett News Service

A first time, local report card was recently released by some Southwest Ohio suburban districts is designed to give a broader picture of schools than provided by the state. The self-generated evaluations, which are separate from Ohio’s annual school ratings, list 10 categories ranging from academics to parent and community involvement in 16 local school systems serving nearly 100,000 area students. Officials among the coalition of districts say state report cards only

show inadequate “snapshots” of a school’s or district’s overall performance. Indian Hill Exempted Village School District Superintendent Mark Miles emphasized the components of the state report card are not the only measures of success in the school district. “There are many other components of quality schools that are not reflected on that report,” he said. Madeira City School District Superintendent Steve Kramer said the Quality Profile helps tell the complete story of how a school district performs. “The Quality Profile is designed to provide a more detailed look at what our community values most in their schools,” he said.

The construction manager of the still-unfinished Kenwood Towne Place development was indicted on federal fraud charges Thursday related to his work on the troubled project. Aubrey “Audie” Tarpley was accused of deceiving lenders and helping to divert money intended for Kenwood Towne Place to other distressed projects. Tarpley, who faces more than 20 years in prison if he’s convicted, is the third person associated with the retail and office complex to face fed-

Districts in the coalition include Fairfield, Forest Hills, Great Oaks, Indian Hill, Kings, Little Miami, Loveland, Madeira, Mason, Milford, Monroe, Northwest, Oak Hills, Sycamore, Talawanda and Wyoming. Districts rated themselves in 10 categories: academics; arts; commitment to improvement; digital learning; fiscal stewardship; parent and community involvement; staff leadership; student activities; student leadership and student services. The reports for each district are available on each of the 16 districts’ web sites, officials said.

said the Quality Profile shares more information about what communities value in their school districts. “These additional accountability measures serve as a valuable supplement to the state report card, offering a broader perspective and deeper understanding of school systems that offer high-quality educational experiences for students,” she said. Most of the 16 districts scored either “excellent with distinction” or “excellent” in the 2011-2012 state ratings. The state’s latest round of ratings is scheduled to be released later this month.

eral charges. Matt Daniels, managing director of project developer Bear Creek Capital, was indicted late last year on fraud and moneylaundering charges. Tina Schmidt, Bear Creek’s former financial officer, signed a plea deal in May that could send her to prison for up to 51 months. Schmidt, however, agreed to help federal prosecutors and could receive a lighter sentence if she provides “substantial cooperation.” Tarpley’s indictment accuses him of working with Daniels to misrepresent how more than $25 million from Bank of America would be used in the construction of Kenwood Towne Place in Sycamore Township. Prosecutors say those misrepresentations persuaded Bank of America to continue to provide money for the project even as the developer fell behind in payments to the contractors. Tarpley’s lawyer could not be reached for comment. By late 2008, the project collapsed financially and fell into foreclosure.

Madeira moms to sell kids’ back-to-school items By Leah Fightmaster lfightmaster@communitypress.com

After last year’s success, some Madeira moms are bringing back their cost-saving approach to back-to-school shopping. Members of Madeira Elementary School’s Parent Teacher Organization started the Changing Hands sale last fall for parents to save some money while still being able to buy items they need for their kids. Brandi Maples, chairwoman of the sale, first heard about the idea from a friend living in Washington, D.C., and its popularity there. People with gently used children’s clothing, toys and other items signed up to be consignors at the sale. Prices on clothing ran from about $1 to $10, and shoes from about $2 to $5. Maples said the benefit of the sale, aside from the prices, is that the items for sale are in good condition and there’s a variety from which to choose. The sale this year is set for Saturday, Sept. 7, from 8 a.m. to noon at Madeira Elementary School, 7840 Thomas Drive, and Maples and other organizers are hoping for more consignors and buyers alike. By the end of July, at least 50 already registered, and she expected more to follow. Maples added that they expanded their sizes for clothing,

which were from newborn to12 years, into older ages, as well as introducing furniture, more baby items and outdoor play and sports equipment. “It’s one place where you can stop and get what you need,” she said. Hoping to appeal to more parents looking for deals, sellers are taking credit cards this year, as well as an added price cut — anything marked with a dot will be sold at half price during the last half hour of the sale, Maples said. Last year’s sale in September served as a profitable venture, bringing in about $5,000 for the PTO after consignors received their 70 percent, treasurer Amy Hyland said. This year, they’re hoping to capitalize on that success and expand by adding a second sale during the spring. With that added sale, items at September’s event will fall under the autumn and winter theme, and spring and summer items will be sold later in March, Maples said. Anyone with extra children’s items they’re looking to take off their hands can register to be a consignor by emailing the organizers at changinghandssale@gmail.com before the Sept. 7 sale. There’s a $10 fee, which comes with the perk of being able to attend the presale the evening before. Sellers who

end the day with items they still want to get rid of can opt to donate any of their remaining items, Maples said. She added that she feels the sale is successful because it’s easy for people to stop by and look through plenty of options for things they need for their kids. “I think it’s what people want,” she said. “There’s great stuff, great merchandise. It’s organized and easy. People appreciated that the details were thought out.”

Madeira High School is considered one of the top schools in Ohio by not one, but three national publications. U.S. News and World Report ranked Madeira as the 16th best high school in Ohio and 438th in the country. It’s 16th place ranking is based on whether the school received a gold, silver or bronze medal, and is then ranked in numerical order based on where it fell within the national rankings. National rankings were determined by comparing how regular and economically disadvantaged students scored to the average, then how the least-academically advantaged students compared to similar students in math and reading, according to the original story. Schools were then ranked nationally by determining their “college readiness index” – a measure that is based on advanced placement or international baccalaureate test data. Madeira came out at 438th nationally and 16th in Ohio, falling short to Walnut Hills High School, Wyoming High School, Indian Hill High School and Sycamore High School in the

Cincinnati area, according to the rankings. The Washington Post ranked Madeira High School as the 10th most challenging high school in Ohio for at least the second year in a row, and 386th in America. Similar to U.S. News’ rankings, AP and IB test data was used to determine the challenge index, which takes the number of students who took an AP test at Madeira and divides that by the number of students. In the third ranking, created by Newsweek and The Daily Beast, used graduation rate, percent of graduates accepted to college, number of AP or IB tests given and SAT, ACT and AP scores to determine their rankings for the top 25 high schools in the Midwest. On this list, Madeira ranked 12 and 131 overall. Walnut Hills, Indian Hill and Wyoming were ranked ahead of Madeira in both The Washington Post’s and Newsweek/The Daily Beast’s. Madeira Superintendent Steve Kramer said that those multiple rankings show that their students “perform at a high level,” while receiving a lot of support from both parents and community members. High School Principal Tom Olson said that it’s great to be

Deer Park board considers rehiring teacher By Leah Fightmaster lfightmaster@communitypress.com

“We encourage a lot of kids to take AP classes at Madeira,” he said. “Some students score lower, but it’s good for them to challenge themselves before going to college. We think the challenge is worth it.” Olson added that although “it’s great to be ranked,” the school will improve its standing in Ohio and nationally.

Deer Park might rehire a recently retired teacher. Marti Kitsinis, a foreign language teacher who taught French at Deer Park Junior/ Senior High School, is being considered for re-employment by the school board. She retired at the end of last school year, but could return to her same position. Holmes teacher Chris Huster said that Kitsinis taught her kids, and felt she was a great teacher who would be a good choice to fill the vacancy. “She has the utmost passion for education,” Huster said. Under state law, school boards are required to hold a special meeting when considering to rehire someone who’s already retired. Superintendent Jeff Langdon said he will recommend the board rehire Kitsinis at the Aug. 21 meeting because he thinks “she is the best candidate for the position.”

ranked, because it brings some familiarity with Madeira and the hard work students and teachers put in. Although Madeira ranks below Indian Hill and Wyoming in all three lists, and Sycamore in one, he feels that the school’s small size has an impact, as well as requiring all AP students to take the exam. He added that because Madeira is smaller, some AP classes are only offered every other year because of the lack of students to enroll in the classes.

Eighth-graders leave lasting impression By Forrest Sellers fsellers@communitypress.com

Some Indian Hill Middle School eighth-graders are leaving their mark in paint. They were chosen to paint a mural that encompassed school life in a hallway next to the administrative office. The students were selected by art teachers at the school based on their artistic talent. “I really like that we’re getting an opportunity to paint,” said eighth-grader Sara Zandvakili, of Indian Hill. Zandvakili and others started work on the mural at the beginning of the school year and have been working on it when they have time during study hall. Eighth-grader Sohini Pas, of Kenwood, said they are now trying to finish the mural before the end of the school year and before they all head to the high school. “We’re proud of what we’ve done,” said Mary Kate Jutze, of

The eighth-graders painted the mural based on an image provided by Indian Hill High School sophomore Abigail Singer. “I think it’s a good way to

leave something from our class,” said Zandvakili. “When we graduate in four years it will still be here.”

Madeira schools prepare for new report card By Leah Fightmaster lfightmaster@communitypress.com

Schools across the state are working to adapt to the new report card, academic and evaluation standards they’ll be held to in a few years. Districts don’t have to wait until 2015, when they’ll get letter-grade based report cards from the Ohio Department of Education, to expect new requirements to start. Beginning next month, 16 of 18 total measures that schools and districts alike will be graded on will be evaluated by the state, said

Kenji Matsudo, assistant superintendent of Madeira City Schools. Those measures are grouped into six components – graduation rate, kindergarten through third-grade literacy, prepared for success, achievement, progress and gap closing. These six will make up the overall A to F grade that districts will get in place of the current scale, which goes from “Excellent with Distinction” to “Academic Emergency.” Measures that will be added to the state report card, such as value added for gifted students

and those with disabilities, have some feeling that while the whole picture of a district isn’t seen through a report card because its heavily based on test scores, there’s a bit more insight than there was. Madeira Superintendent Steve Kramer said the report card doesn’t show what the community values as important within its school district and looks more at just the hard facts. Another debate is over the A to F grading scale. Kramer said he sees how a letter grade for a school or district overall helps

parents and community members see what they’re earning, but he added he’s afraid that’s the only thing people will look at, instead of the grades for individual sections.But Kramer also said this new grading system seems to be more recognizable to people. “The ODE feels this is a better explanation to parents how schools are operating,” he said. “Letter grades are something they can relate to.” Although the 2012-2013 school year was the last until 2015 to receive an overall rating for districts and schools, resi-

dents and parents won’t lose any information. With the state phasing in the new report card, it’s also transitioning its platform. Future report cards won’t be simple paper scores, but will instead be web-based and feature pie charts and graphs to better compare to other districts and schools, as well as being more visual. New features for each future report card will add a new grade through August of 2015, Matsudo said. Want more updates for Madeira? Follow Leah Fightmaster on Twitter: @LCFightmaster.

Residents honor police for solving burglaries By Jeanne Houck

jhouck@communitypress.com

A citizens group recently honored seven Indian Hill police officers for tracking down three men ultimately convicted after a string of burglaries in Indian Hill and four other jurisdictions. The Cincinnati Citizens Police Association honored Indian Hill police Capt. Mike Dressell, Lt. Mike Madsen and Officers Frank Cogliano, Brian Dearborn, Ernie

Dressell

Madsen

Hudson, Keith Lang and Carl Watts for cracking the cases that occurred last year in Madeira, Evendale, Wyoming and West Chester, in addition to Indian Hill. Dressell said charges

Cogliano

Dearborn

against James Robert Barker, Thomas King and Brayden Brown, whom he said are all in their early 20s and residents of Greater Cincinnati, were combined. Barker, King and

Hudson

Lang

Brown were convicted of burglary and possessionof-criminal-tools charges and given prison terms of 11 years, seven years and two years, respectively, Dressell said. The Indian Hill police

Rangers gave this account of the Indian Hill burglaries: » Shortly after 3 a.m. March Watts 9, 2012, Rangers responded to burglaries minutes apart at two homes on Hoffman Farm Lane with people inside. » Two men entered the homes — although they fled from one of them

when confronted by an elderly woman with a flashlight – while a third man waited outside in a car. “It must be noted that the time from the crime being reported, to suspect identification and arrest and to the recovery of the property during the search warrant (inspection) was a little over 24 hours,” said Chuck Schlie, chief of police of the Indian Hill Rangers.

Preventing the high cost of foreclosures

Although the real estate market has improved considerably this year in sales volume and local home prices have increased Ohio has also bucked the national trend of declining foreclosures by posting a 2 percent increase in foreclosures for the first half of the year, bringing us to the fourth highest foreclosure state in the nation. One problem is that the time frame for processing a foreclosure is so lengthy in Ohio. Right now it is 18 months on average, six month higher than the national average, which is why we see homes sitting vacant for so long making them even more vulnerable to the copper thieves.

I implore homeowners facing difficulties making their payments to persist in communicating with their lenders. Even if you spoke with your lender before, try and try again.

before you may now. Call one of the numbers above for help. Don’t give up. Consider the option of a short sale. Many banks are becoming more open to accepting payoffs less than what is owed and even giving the owners money to move in a program called “Cash For Keys.” Talk with a real estate professional that has experience in short sales. Many of us know homeowners in distress. If you know someone in this situation please pass on the above resources.

Last week’s question Should U.S. lawmakers and their staffs continue to receive a federal contribution toward the health insurance that they must purchase through soon-to-open exchanges created by President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law to prevent the largely unintended loss of healthcare benefits for 535 members of the Senate and House of Representatives and thousands of Capitol Hill staff. Why or why not?

“Yes. Everyone scheduled to receive a contribution from employers should still receive that contribution, no matter for whom they work. “If the conservatives and Obama-haters would just give it a chance they’d see all the good that the Affordable Care Act can accomplish instead of trying to repeal it 40 more times in Congress. “It’s meant to help the poor and uninsured just like the New Deal back 70-odd years ago during the Great Depression.” TRog

“Although it would be nice if making lawmakers pay for their own health care would bring their attention to the plight of most Americans, the cost of their personal insurance is chump change compared to the campaign contributions they get from the special interests in the medical field. “Since Citizen’s United it’s a free-for-all for rich individuals and corporations. The only thing holding some of the worst of them back is the sheer impracticality of most of their ideas. “What would work better is if more citizen voters would pay more attention to how some of these creeps in Columbus and Washington vote, and give them unlimited vacation time at the next election. “Unfortunately with the media breaking into venues, which allow people to get the news they want as opposed to the news that is actually true, we’re going to have an uphill battle getting any sort of consensus on public health in our nation. “Fortunately, the Affordable Care Act is already cutting costs for many of us, and even if it doesn’t solve the bigger problems it will set the stage for continued dialogue.” N.F.

best for the American people. Period.” J.Z.

“The Democrats yes, the Republicans no! Seriously, whether its health care or retirement, government should not be allowed to vote its own members and staff better benefits than those available to the rest of the population. “A single term in congress shouldn’t entitle you to anything more than Cobra benefits while you look for new employment. If ex members of government had to survive on Medicare or Medicaid and Social Security those would be good programs, and yes, we all might have to contribute a bit more to ensure their long-term future.” D.R.

“If these people are already receiving a contribution from the government (their employer) it should continue. If this means they will not have to get Obama-care like the rest of us – shame on them! “We should all be in this boat together.

Defending state champion Moeller football reloads By Scott Springer sspringer@communitypress.com

KENWOOD — The sound you’ve heard off of Montgomery Road just past Ronald Reagan Highway is a familiar one this time of year. It’s Moeller High School football team reloading for another run. A little more than nine months since winning the Ohio Division I trophy in Canton, the Crusaders are back with their typically demanding schedule and high expectations. “We’re excited about the season,” coach John Rodenberg said. “I thought we worked out pretty hard this winter. This is a new team. We had a lot of guys graduate last year and they had their own character. This is a new team with a new character.” Stepping in for the graduated Spencer Iacovone at quarterback is Gus Ragland. Ragland played on Moeller’s state football and baseball championship teams with Iacovone and was part of the offense a year ago. “It was important for Gus to start at wide receiver to get that game experience last year,” Rodenberg said. “We think it will be a smooth transition because they’re similar-type styles.” When Ragland hands off, he’ll have a committee of Dean Meyer, Jack Gruber, John Heywood and Sterling Noes looking to chew up yards behind the Crusader line coached by former UC Bearcat Doug Rosfeld.

The line features Steven Langenkamp going to Ohio University, and Rodenberg expects Jared Jacon-Duffy to also get offered. Lining up wide are speedy junior Chase Pankey and lanky senior Isaiah Gentry. Both are strong members of Moeller’s track team in the spring.

“We might have two of the fastest receivers we’ve had in a long time,” Rodenberg said. “It should open up our vertical game a little bit this year.” Gentry has been offered by Akron and Kent and could be a big game away from attracting more attention. As always, the Crusaders have some nice tightend targets, including one who could be a factor for the next three years in sophomore Jake Haussman, who’s already at 6foot-4 and 215 pounds. “We’re loaded with about

three to four tight ends that have great potential,” Rodenberg said. “We’re excited about what we can do in formation.” Defensively, 6-foot-6 safety Sam Hubbard will turn more heads, especially after signing with Ohio State. Coordinating again is veteran Jim Lippincott, who teams up with offensive assistant Steve Klonne to form Moeller’s “Golden Boys” under Rodenberg. “We’ve got a lot of experience,” Rodenberg said. “It’s easy to work with these guys. They all do their job well and when they do that, it’s easy to control it.” Once again, Moeller’s schedule is not for the weak at heart.

“We did pick up a Canadian team that’ll be a little bit different,” Rodenberg said. “The Indianapolis Pike team is going to be a very athletic team. I tell you the team that worries me the most is the Louisville St. X team. I thought they were young last year and tough. That’s a heck of a test before we go into league play.”

Mustangs football rolls with new horses By Scott Springer sspringer@communitypress.com

MADEIRA — Football is another sport at Madeira that will feel the loss of the 2012 senior class; likely one of the more talented ones in school history. Over their four seasons, the Mustangs were a cumulative 33-9 and won two Cincinnati Hills League titles. “We had 18 seniors last year that graduated,” coach Mike Shafer said. “We have three starters returning. We’ll have some young kids that will have an opportunity to play on Friday nights that were JV players last year.” However, the previous class left a good example on the younger players in terms of weight training and summer work. The days of Will Steur or Kyle Williamson on the line may be temporarily gone, but the foundation is there. “We won’t be as big, but we have a couple guys who are capable of playing,” Shafer said. The Mustangs have always had capable runners and throwers and this season’s offense worked extensively in late summer on moving the ball against the likes of Clark, Ross, Kings, Waynesville, Milford and Taft in seven-on-seven competitions. Seniors Cole Johnson and Grant Hopewell are now the targets on the ends and senior Matt Ballweg steps in for departed three-year starter Zack Jansen at quarterback. “He quarterbacked all summer last year because our starter (Jansen) was hurt,” Shafer said. “Even though he doesn’t have a lot of Friday night expe-

rience, he has a lot of experience in the offense.” The rest of the offense will be new guys, including Jewels Edmerson running the ball. “He was the JV tailback last year and backed up Timmy James,” Shafer said. “He did get in some and I don’t think we’ll miss a beat in that position.” Madeira’s defense is a big question with a new front six.

However, in past years the Mustangs have had the firepower to merely outscore the opponent. With so many changes on both sides of the ball, Madeira might be the league’s biggest mystery. “We had a luxury the last few years of only having two, three or four guys play both sides of the ball,” Shafer said. “We’ll be back to having a lot more go both ways. “

Braves feature new offense, new turf By Scott Springer sspringer@communitypress.com

INDIAN HILL — If all goes well for Indian Hill in their opener, their quarterback will be OK for the second half at New Richmond Aug. 30. Last year, senior starter Jon Griggs ran for144 yards and two scores in the first half against the Lions and had the Braves out to a 14-0 lead. Then, he tore his ACL. “It kind of threw us in a a bit of a tailspin,” coach Mike Theisen said. Fortunately, Matt Thompson had moved back to the area and was able to take over for the final six games of Indian Hill’s season. The Braves were able to pull out two wins in what was otherwise a difficult year. With the lanky lad back for a full year, Theisen hopes to spread the field some and utilize the receiving strengths of 6foot-5 Shay Bahner, 6-foot-6 freshman Reid Aicholtz and senior Mac Carrier. “We’re going back to a pistol, but we’re going to run the ball with him a lot,” Theisen said. “He’s an outstanding runner. We expect to be a 65-35 run team.” When Thompson doesn’t run, Carrier or Ben Brendamour could carry the goods. They’ll do so with an offensive line that averages 260 pounds and features 290-pound Sam Smith. Smith, Thompson and Carrier are all getting collegiate looks. “We’re pretty beefy up

hopes to get back into the Cincinnati Hills League discussion. “I think people overlook us a little bit, which is fine with me,”

Theisen said. “I think Wyoming’s going to be considered the favorite. I always tell people I think Taylor’s a team that’s up and coming; you’ve got to watch them.”

After opening at New Richmond, the Braves return home to Tomahawk Stadium Sept. 6. It’ll be their first game on the new, shiny turf installed over the summer. “Eleven years with the old turf, so it’s about time we changed that,” Theisen said. “It’s a great new look for us. The kids are really excited.”

It’s time to win for youthful Deer Park By Nick Dudukovich presspreps@gmail.com

DEER PARK — The last couple of seasons have been rough on the Deer Park Wildcats as the program has just two wins in as many years. But the team could be on the upswing thanks to an infusion of young talent led by a group of stellar sophomores. “Age is one thing, but this is talented group,” said head coach Larry Kozlowski. “They are more talented a group than I’ve coached before as a head coach yet.” Kozlowski said around 50 percent of the team’s starters will consist of sophomores. Kozlowski While young, fans attending games this season will be able to recognize the team’s blistering speed. That attribute should have the Wildcats adding to the highlight reel, despite the squad’s reliance on younger players. “…The team speed is the best I’ve ever coached,” Kozlowski said. “I have athletes all over the field this year.” On offense, Kozlowski made a switch at the quarterback position by moving last year’s starter, Trevor Andrews, back to wide receiver. It was just two seasons ago that Andrews caught 20 passes as a sophomore. In 2012, Andrews threw for 1,464 yards and 13 touchdowns and garnered second-team All-CHL recognition at quarterback. “He’s a short guy who’s quick and shifty…He should be a goto-guy. He’s ready for a big year,” Kozlowski said.

Sophomore Austin Osborne will assume the quarterback role with a chance to make a big impact. At 6-foot-5, with a good arm, Osborne possesses the tools that can make life difficult for opposing defenses. Kozlowski said Osborne has used the summer practice season to work on reading defenses, in addition to watching film. In the backfield, Osborne will have 6-foot, 200-pound running back Martell Johnson handling the rushing duties. Johnson, a sophomore, saw time on the varsity field as a freshman. It’s a move that should pay dividends this season, according to Kozlowski.

“Holy smokes it’s paid off. He’s a different runner. He’s fast and he’s powerful and he’ll run you over if head to,” Kozlowski said. On defense, the Wildcats should be aggressive, with blitzes coming from every direction. The scheme places increased importance on the linebacker position, which means junior middle linebacker Chad Comarata and sophomore Christian Stidham could be poised for big seasons. “(Linebackers) set the tone for our defense,” Kozlowski said. Comarata had a breakout year in 2012 with 73 tackles, and his play was awarded second-

team All-CHL recognition. The Wildcats kickoff the season playing a non-conference game against Purcell Marian at the University of Cincinnati’s Sheakley Field as part of the Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown Aug. 30. Play begins at 6 p.m. After consecutive one-win seasons, Kozlowski said the emphasis on the 2013 campaign will be about winning games. “A lot depends on if we can get over and not use age as an excuse…and if we play the way we should, we should win a lot of games,” he said. “In the end, that’s what it’s all about. It’s time to bring it all to the table and win some some games and that’s the bottom line.”

Bombers bring explosive offense to the table By Tom Skeen tskeen@communitypress.com

SPRINGFIELD TWP. — Defenses better be prepared for the bevy of offensive weapons the St. Xavier Bombers are going to bring to the field in 2013. Senior quarterback Nick Tensing returns after throwing for nearly 2,000 yards and 17 touchdowns to just six interceptions. Coach Steve Specht not only loves what his quarterback can do on the field, but also what he brings to the huddle. “(I’ve seen) tremendous growth as far as leadership is concerned,” Specht said. “… He’s able to do things that we wouldn’t J. Hilliard be able to do with anybody else. He’s really taken to the leadership role.” Tensing is one of four team captains along with running back C.J. Hilliard, left tackle Rich Kurz and the versatile Ryan Frey. Hilliard torched defenses for nearly five yards per carry and nine touchdowns in 2012. After hitting the weight room in the offseason, defenses should expect to see more of the big back this season. “… C.J. is practicing harder than I’ve ever seen,” Specht said. “He finally learned how to practice. He’s at a different level than he’s been the previous three years, but that’s how it’s supposed to be when you’re going into your senior year.” For the Tensing-Hilliard

freight train to roll down hill, a rebuilt offensive line is going to have to come together. Kurz is the lone returner and the rest of the starters are still to be determined, according to Specht. The defense is led by junior linebacker Justin Hilliard, who is one of the most recruited players in the state of Ohio with more than 20 offers from major Division I colleges. “… He is a different player and he’s as advertised,” Specht said. “There’s a reason he’s getting all these college scholar-

ship offers. I think Justin has the chance to be as good as anybody we’ve ever had on the defensive side of the ball and that’s high praise coming from me.” While the Bombers lose four of their five starters in the defensive secondary, they return six of their starting seven up front at linebacker and defensive line. Frey will hold down the cornerback position and see time on the offensive side of the ball, while Nick Carovillano will

move from the defensive line to more of a hybrid outside linebacker. The Bombers begin the season ranked No. 24 in the nation by Rivals.com and, according to MaxPreps, have the 10th-toughest schedule in the country. Outside of playing their league games in the Greater Catholic League South, the Bombers take on Colerain, Cleveland St. Ignatius, Warren Central (Indianapolis), Brentwood Academy (Tenn.) and Ben Davis (Indianapolis).

CCD seeks improvement through experience By Mark D. Motz mmotz@communitypress.com

INDIAN HILL — The Cincinnati Country Day Indians finished 4-6 last season, including a 2-5 mark in the Miami Valley Conference where three teams – Summit Country Day, CHCA, and North College Hill – all reached the football playoffs. Head coach Tim Dunn expects those three to be the front runners in the league again this season, but also expects his team to compete with them. With 15 returning starters on his 30-odd Dunn man roster, Dunn has reason for optimism. “We’ve got about 70 percent of our offense back,” he said. “That’s pretty good. Up front we need some more experience, but we’ll be competitive.” Junior quarterback Cameron Alldred returns to lead the Indians’ offense. He has a pair of seniors in the backfield with him in J.R. Menifee and Carson Aquino. Sophomore Dylan Jordan also plays running back. The offensive line includes returning juniors Matero Marino-Cheek, Brooks Warner and Will Koustmer, along with Mitchell Mack. Carter McMaster and junior Austin Richey serve as blocking and receiving threats at tight end. Junior Max Guttman returns at receiver The defense features many of the same characters, playing on both sides of the ball.

SYMMES TWP. — After a 9-2 playoff season in 2012 – including a 6-1 record and runner-up finish in the Miami Valley Conference – Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy football could be even better this season. “We have eight starters back on both sides of the ball,” head coach Eric Taylor said. “We were able to start the year at a little higher level in terms of installing plays and getting prepared, and we were at a pretty good level already.” The Eagles will maintain their spread offense and play a 3-4 base defense with plenty of multiples to keep opposing offenses off balance. The offensive line is one key strength, with senior center Christian Willard, senior guards Connor Kirbabas and Ryan Prescott and senior left tackle Jacob Haller all returning. They protect a backfield that includes a three-year senior starters like quarterback Connor Osborne and running backs Tyler Renners and Nick Marsh. Junior Cam Murray returns at receiver. Defensively, look for Prescott and junior Jake Eckert at the ends. Eckert is also an allcity punter and kicker for the Eagles.

The 6-foot-7, 255-pound defensive end grew up playing basketball in Nigeria, but switched to football this season after moving to the United States as a freshman. “We’re playing good assignment football and playing very unselfishly,” Taylor said. “Some of these guys have been best friends since they were little. They’re making good decisions and checking to of things very well. “We still have a lot of competition going on in the skill positions. That’s where we’re inexperienced and we need to grow up some.”

More than 500 Smiles…and Counting! The University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College thanks our generous sponsors for their support of the UC Smiles program, which provides area school children with access to dental care and an introduction to the possibilities of a college education.

• UC Smiles has served more than 550 local school kids over the past three years.

• Each child receives an assessment of their oral health, toothpaste, a toothbrush, floss, and tips for good nutrition.

• The check ups include a full oral health exam and teeth cleaning by qualified students in the Dental Hygiene program at UC Blue Ash College (the largest Dental Hygiene program in Ohio).

• Many of the children served in the UC Smiles program have never had access to dental care.

None of this would be possible without the generous support of Crest + Oral B, the Dental Care Plus Group and the Delta Dental Foundation.

Thank you for giving us all a reason to smile!

Preserve summer taste by roasting tomatoes As I’ve mentioned before, I know when a recipe hits a chord with readers by the amount of response it generates long after it’s published. This is particularly true of seasonal recipes, like roasted tomatoes. This recipe is slightly different from one I shared last year. Tomatoes are in season right now and the homegrown/best Rita are abunHeikenfeld dant at RITA’S KITCHEN farmers’ markets. As for me, my tomatoes are the best I’ve ever grown and since most of them are the indeterminate type, they keep bearing all season long. I’m not even begrudging the groundhogs eating their share, there’s

that many! When I do find veggies and fruit that have been bitten into by Mother Nature’s clan, I just cut them up and feed them to my girls (my chickens). They make a quick meal of them, Tomatoes are full of lycopene, which is good for our hearts, men’s prostates and our immune system. Plus the

yellow and orange tomatoes have just as much nutrition as their red counterparts.

Roasted regular-size tomatoes with herbs (or not) Preheat oven to 400425 degrees. Cut tomatoes in half. Lay either cut side up or down (I laid mine cut side down

but next time will lay them cut side up since I think that will keep more of the tomato flavor in). Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle on any herbs you like – basil, thyme, rosemary all work well. But be sure and chop them up fine. I also like to add salt and pepper. Roast until skins start to look spotty if you are roasting skin side up. Otherwise, roast until tomatoes look wrinkled and are soft. Let cool and, if you like, remove skins. The first time I made them I didn’t remove the skins, but when I used them in cooked dishes they were a little tough. My suggestion is to remove them or put them in the blender or food processor and the skins will process small enough. You will wind up with more of a puree if you put them through the blender or food processor, but the bonus is you get the nutritious benefits of the skin. Freeze in desired quantities.

This is nice since ev-

erything is mixed in a boil and then just poured onto a sprayed pan to roast. Delicious as a side dish and, if you want to freeze them, you can either leave the skins on (they may be a bit tough) or puree them as directed above. Now you can also roast these plain, with just a sprinkling of salt and pepper and oil. Preheat oven to 400425 degrees. For every pint of cherry or grape tomatoes, add a teaspoon of minced garlic, a drizzle of olive oil to coat nicely, and salt and pepper. Just mix this up in a bowl. If you have any herbs, again like basil, thyme or rosemary, chop up fine and add to taste. Pour onto sprayed baking pan and roast until skins look spotty and a bit puffy, about 20 minutes.

Baked potato nachos with secret ingredient For Bart L., who likes this spicy appetizer at restaurants but wants to make them at home. By boiling potatoes first, they bake up really nice in the oven. And the secret ingredient that

makes these so different? Ranch dressing!

10 medium red or Yukon gold potatoes 1 pouch ranch salad dressing Jalapeño slices (optional) 16 oz. shredded Mexican blend or favorite cheese 16 oz. sour cream Green onions or chives, sliced thin

Cook potatoes with skin on: cover with cold water and a dash of salt. Bring to boil, reduce heat, cover and cook just until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and cool so that you can cut them into thick slices. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Put slices in single layer on sprayed baking sheets. Sprinkle each with the dressing mix, jalapeños, and the cheeses. Bake uncovered for 8-10 minutes or until cheese melts. Dollop with sour cream and onions or chives.

Carothers is a classically trained oil painter who has developed a significant body of work in a landscape tradition. He builds on this tradition by creating views of Cincinnati that extend beyond simple observation and transform painted gestures into buildings and buildings back into painted gestures. Cooper creates largescale aerial view “maps” of Cincinnati using nothing more than copier paper, ballpoint pens, and a deep knowledge of the city built upon a lifetime of travelling on city buses, walking downtown, and taking car trips with friends. “Connecting the Jewels of the Queen City” is part of the new Eat.

The JCC is offering a unique two-part program featuring Aaron Betsky, director of the Cincinnati Art Museum, at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 22, at the Mayerson JCC, and a private guided tour of the Cincinnati Wing of the Cincinnati Art Museum and lunch at the museum’s Terrace Cafe’ on Sunday afternoon, Aug. 25. Betsky, also an architecture educator and critic, will discuss “Connecting the Jewels of the Queen City” Aug. 22 at the JCC. He will talk about the “crown jewels” of Cincinnati that set the city apart, and his controversial ideas on using these assets to strengthen Cincinnati’s community. He will give suggestions on how to build on the landscape that already exists to improve the future of the entire city. His thought-provoking perspective references changes to infrastructure, public transportation, and adding life to connective spaces between institutions, including areas outside of the city center. “Cincinnati’s anchor cultural institutions, its parks and cultural heritage really distinguish this city and tie it together. We need to reuse and rethink what we have in order to build with the land rather than on it, to create a more sustainable way of living,” Betsky said. On Sunday, Aug. 25 at 11:30 a.m., participants will visit the Cincinnati Wing of the Art Museum with a private guided tour. They’ll see the Cincinnati Everyday exhibit featuring two local artists, Cole Carothers and Courttney Cooper with different perspectives on the city land-
