75¢ BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

The future tenant of the railroad depot in downtown Madeira might be months away from moving in, but city officials have eight proposals for a new eatery at the intersection of Railroad and Miami Avenues.FILE PHOTO

Madeira seeks train depot input Committee priorities topic of Sept. 18 meeting at Madeira High School By Jason Hoffman jhoffman@communitypress.com

Madeira City Council wants public input on Economic Development Committee priorities for the future of the former railroad depot building at 7701 Railroad Ave. City Council will conduct a meeting Wednesday, Sept. 18, at Madeira High School, 7465 Loannes Drive, to listen to what residents want to see as guide-

lines for the next business to locate in the former railroad depot building, which is owned by the city. “The purpose is to review the goals and get input on the goals and evaluate the criteria that would meet those goals,” said Mike Steur, councilman and Economic Development Committee chairman. “It’s the grouping technique – the most important goals rise to the top.”

It was previously thought council would seek public input on the eight business proposals for the depot building. Proposals were submitted July 19 to the Economic Development Committee, but a date was never set for City Council to choose a winner. “We’re getting input and that’s great, but we’ve had these eight proposals for more than a month and we haven’t even talked to any of [the business

owners],” said Vice Mayor Tim Dicke. Kris Kangsathien, who owned Amarin Thai & Sushi, which closed July 31, submitted one of the eight proposals and asked City Council when he would find out if it chooses his bid. City Council also must determine what kind of changes it will make to the interior of the depot building, but Steur said it will wait to have that discussion until a winning proposal is chosen. Kangsathien, who opened

Amarin in 1999 said he will continue to wait, but is disappointed the process has taken so long. “I just want to know yes or no,” he said. “But I guess there’s nothing I can do.” None of the other potential business owners attended the council meeting, and Steur said they would not get a chance to pitch their ideas at the Sept. 18 meeting.

Drake Motel ordered to stay closed for year Sheriff’s deputies raided site in May after reports of drug sales, prostitution Gannett News Service

A Sycamore Township motel long known for drug and prostitution activity was ordered closed for a year Tuesday. Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Ethna Cooper issued the seven-page ruling, closing the Drake Motel at 8109

Reading Road for one year, the most allowed under Ohio law. “That’s absolutely fantastic,” Sycamore Township Trustee Cliff Bishop said of Tuesday’s ruling. “The Drake Motel has been nothing but problems since I can remember, and I’ve been a trustee for 20 years.” Cooper’s ruling comes three

months after the Hamilton County Sheriff’s office raided the motel and closed it. The Hamilton County prosecutor’s office then asked for it to be permanently closed, calling a string of witnesses to testify they sold and bought drugs and committed acts of prostitution there. Police witnesses said: » From January 2011 through March 2013, about 350 calls were received by police for safety-services runs at the mo-

Madeira special counsel responds to man’s lawsuit

Attorneys will meet with judge to schedule hearings By Jason Hoffman jhoffman@communitypress.com

MADEIRA — The lawsuit filed against Madeira City Council could soon be argued in Hamilton County court. Terry Donnellon, special counsel for the city, filed his response to the lawsuit filed by Madeira resident Jim Horwitz filed May 31. The suit alleges council misused its right to executive session and failed to properly use a reason for the session during its Feb. 11 meeting. “This is a case-management conference,” Donnellon said. “(Carl Stich Jr.) The judge will meet with both sides to work out scheduling.” The response categorically denies the allegations and asks for the suit to be dismissed. “My initial assessment is it’s an interesting argument the law doesn’t apply to Madeira,” said Curt Hartman, attorney representing Horwitz. “So now no law of the state applies?” Horwitz is seeking an injunction against the city’s dealings with a developer hoping to build a Paxton’s Grill on Miami

The site of the now defunct Kutol manufacturing and shipping plant on Camargo Road is being considered for development of an indoor tennis club, but zoning issues between the business owner and city officials have the project on hold. JASON HOFFMAN/THE COMMUNITY PRES

Avenue where the Muchmore and Hosbrook houses currently sit. He also wants the county to force the city to have an open, competitive-bidding process for development of the site. Madeira, after more than a year of discussion with Tom Powers, executive managing director of Cassidy Turley working on this deal apart from his job with the real estate firm, awarded exclusive negotiating rights to Powers and his group PMABC, LLC March 25. At the heart of the complaint is the minutes for the Feb. 11 meeting that were approved unan-

imously despite clerical errors. At the June 24 City Council meeting, all officials gathered around the dais to listen a portion of the official Feb. 11 meeting recording and then unanimously voted to approve modified minutes reflecting a reason for the executive session. “The minutes were drafted wrong and not reviewed but council approved it,” Hartman said. “Why does it take a lawsuit to have (city council) do the right thing?” For more about the stories that matter in Madeira, follow Jason Hoffman on Twitter: @jhoffman_cp.

Zoning law delays Camargo Road deal City officials, attorney will seek ‘third option’ for tennis club By Jason Hoffman jhoffman@communtiypress.com

MADEIRA — The future of a proposed indoor-tennis club on Camargo Road remains in limbo after Madeira City Council tabled a request for a zoning change. Council tabled the request to change the former Kutol Manufacturing site at 7650 Camargo Road to a “Manufacturing-Recreation” zone and remove the city’s Central Business District Overlay

We Help Build Tomorrow, Today

requirements. Dan Reitz, attorney at Graydon Head, said his client – Clevelandbased GLRC 1 – needs the changes because of the cost it would take to adhere to the Central Business District Overlay requirements. “It’s a challenge to incorporate the building materials [required in] the overlay with changing a soap factory into a tennis club,” he said. The Central Business District Overlay requirements call for any building to match the look and feel of other structures in the area, said Mike Steur, councilman and chairman of the Economic Development Committee. If a tennis club were built on the property it would most likely require significant teardown of the existing building, Reitz said, but the goal would be to incorporate as much of the existing structure

as possible. Vice Mayor Tim Dicke said council should consider changing the zoning for the area to recreation only, removing the manufacturing designation to inhibit another manufacturing plant on Camargo Road. Madeira officials previously considered hiring a consulting firm to survey the city’s options for having a mixed-use development in the area, but the price tag was too steep. The privately owned property is being sold by Cassidy Turley, but the city’s Economic Development Committee previously explored the mixed-use concept with developers, to no avail. Tabling the motion will give both sides a chance to go back to the negotiating table and figure out a solution. The sale of the $2.5 million property isn’t final yet, and Reitz wouldn’t say if the sale hinged on zoning changes, but was positive a deal could be reached. “The city is showing goodwill and an intent to reach a mutually agreeable zoning modification, which is in everyone’s best interest,” he said.

Madeira’s Coach K steps aside By Scott Springer

sspringer@communitypress.com

MADEIRA — Jack Kuzniczci is the envy of fathers who gather great pride from watching their children play ball. After watching the children of many parents play for him over the past 23 years, the veteran baseball coach (two years at Clermont Northeastern; 21 at Madeira) stepped aside Aug. 26 to watch his own. Son Cody Kuzniczci is a redshirt sophomore at Northern Kentucky University and figures to see regular action at NKU as a catcher/designated hitter in their second Division I season. With daughter Julie slated to begin as a softball player at UC Clermont this season, Kuzniczci has decided it’s time to watch from the other side of the fence. “I went in and talked to Joe (Madeira athletic director Kimling) at the end of the season,” Kuzniczci said. “He told me to take my time. He wanted me to wait ‘til the end of the summer to be sure. I just want to clear up the schedule to make sure I can watch them play.”

As coach of the Mustangs, Kuzniczci racked up eight league titles, nine sectional titles, eight district titles, four regional titles, one season as state runner-up (2011) and one state title (1999). In addition to adding to Madeira’s banner collection, he was able to coach his son through his prep career. Cody redshirted his first year at NKU, but during the past season “Coach K” was limited in his opportunities to See MADEIRA, Page A5

Indian Hill’s Mac Carrier delivers on the gridiron By Scott Springer sspringer@communitypress.com

INDIAN HILL — Opponents of Indian Hill High School’s football team will notice some tall trees around Tomahawk Stadium this fall. In addition to the heavily wooded topography, there also

are some lanky lads sporting Indian Hill’s red-and-white lettering on the new two-tone turf field. Returning quarterback Matt Thompson is 6-foot-4 and receiver Shay Bahner and offensive lineman Sam Smith also hover around that altitude. In the explosive department, the Braves have a multi-purpose player that might stretch to 5-foot-11with an extra pair of socks. Mac Carrier ran the ball, caught the ball, intercepted the

ball and return punts and kickoffs last year for coach Mike Theisen’s Braves. For good measure, he made 22 tackles. He’s one of the weapons Theisen brings back for a team that didn’t win until late in the season last fall. “We have a lot of people back that have gained a lot of valuable experience,” Carrier said. “Unlike last year, we have double-digit seniors.” Bahner returns as the most See CARRIER, Page A5

Wehrle’s Wildcats kick it in The Park By Scott Springer

sspringer@communitypress.com

DEER PARK — Joe Wehrle is not one to stand pat. Upon taking over Deer Park’s boys soccer program last year, the veteran coach made some radical changes that paid off with a 10-win season. That figure included a tournament win over CHCA. “I switched everything,” Wehrle said. “I moved a couple kids to other positions.” This year, “Operation Switcheroo” is still in effect.

One of the changes involves senior defender Andrew Berling, who now finds himself aiming for the back of the net. “Last year he played defense and now I’m playing him up on the offense,” Wehrle said. “He’s playing more of the game at the striker position.” Berling complements fellow senior Logan Walker, who was fifth in the Cincinnati Hills League in scoring as a junior. At presstime, he was the 2013 league leader. “He’s the top returning scorer for the CHL,” Wehrle said.

“He moves off the ball well.” With only four starting seniors, Wehrle is not beyond reshuffling his cards. His soccer thinking can be literally “out of the box”. “When we do drills I tell them, ‘You never know when you’re going to be asked to play a position you’re not used to,’” Wehrle said. “Defensive players practice shooting and offensive players do the defensive drills.” Early on, the strategy has the See SOCCER, Page A5

experienced receiver and James Brendamour might get more lugs in the backfield, but No. 3 in your program is patiently awaiting the pigskin. “When I get my chances I definitely want to make a big play,” Carrier said. “We have a lot of people we want to get the ball to that will be successful.” Carrier has played football since he could walk and brings a number of moves that have left many an opponent falling over their shoes.

she’s pretty good.” Carrier used to play some basketball, but now is strictly football and lacrosse. He’d like to attract a Division I school with high academics. In the early running, Cornell and Columbia from the Ivy League and Lehigh and Bucknell from the Patriot League have showed interest. Wherever he winds up, the kid who grew up pulling for the Chargers and Eagles, will always pull for the Bengals. “I’ve got to be,” he said. “That’s what’s paying for my education.” Once football ends, Carrier hopes to field offers before getting ready for the spring lacrosse season. He plays midfield for the Braves and hopes for a state championship.

open space I can do what I want,” Carrier said. “I don’t like to be in the big crowded area.” If the name sounds familiar, it’s because Carrier’s father, Mark, is a three-time Pro Bowl safety who now coaches Bengals defensive backs. On occasion, some family tape study turns into parental highlights. “He likes to brag about himself a little bit to make sure I’m listening,” Carri-

er said smiling. “He likes to show what he could do back at safety.” Plus, Mac has competition in clippings and notoriety with his younger sister, Lexi Carrier. She plays on Indian Hill’s girls soccer team and also plays some basketball. “They like to tease me and say I’m the third-best athlete behind her and my Dad,” Carrier said. “Her being younger, I’m still faster and stronger, but

week twice this year,” Kuzniczci said. He’ll also be keeping track of Madeira’s most heralded player, Andrew Benintendi. The four-year starter rewrote the Mustang record books and will suit up for the Arkansas Razorbacks in 2014. While Kuzniczci’s replacement has big shoes to fill, Coach K endorses pitching coach Scott Stocker. “He’s been with me since 2007 and has done a pretty good job,” Kuzniczci said.

Despite needing to invest in a quality lawn chair, the former UC Bearcat and minor league hitter (Montreal Expos) has still not given his final bunt sign or made his last line-up. He plans to continue coaching in the summer. “I’m still going to be with Midland and I’ll still be giving private hitting lessons,” Kuzniczci said. “I’ll go watch games, but I’m not going to be an assistant or anything for Scott. I just want to turn it over to him and let him

run with it for awhile.” Should Madeira consider a “Kuzniczci Field,” Coach K will surely be there. However, he may be in another uniform. At an active 55, his passion for the game remains. “I may come back and coach in a few years if Cody is done playing,” Kuzniczci said. “I’ve still got energy for the game. I don’t know what’s going to happen two or three years down the road. It’s definitely a possibility.”

keep swatting shots away, it could be another year of double-digit victories. “As long as we stay healthy, we should,” Wehrle said. Defense is key to Deer Park’s efforts and the Wildcats hope to have ju-

nior Andrew Gatto back from an injury soon. The sweeper is also one of Wehrle’s better defenders, along with senior captain Ryan Bosse. “He’s kind of like the glue to midfield that holds everything together,”

Wehrle said. Alongside Bosse are some youthful players Wehrle hopes to see for the next four seasons. “I have two starting freshman that are really good,” he said. “Sean Satterfield is only about 5-

At that point and if he does, then one may shoot first and ask the hard questions later. Today 30 states of the Union have “stand your ground” statutes, and the rest will de-

Are we reverting to a nation of gunslingers who in days long gone wore six-guns out of necessity, but always openly and with an honor code on their use? Are our communities so broken and the citizens so overwrought with fear of assault that we must live by the point of our gun because that is the only law that the outlaw understands? Before the invention of “stand your ground,” our com-

mon law required a man to retreat from an assault before one is justified in shooting the assailant. A finer point of common law, now apparently forgotten, is that a man claiming self defense cannot be the one who initiates a confrontation.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Should fans at sporting events have to conform to a “code of conduct”? What types of behavior should be regulated?

“Yes, sports fans’ behavior should be regulated at events. With families around and small kids present, profanity and drunken or sober obnoxiousness should not be tolerated. Those aren’t really the problem; the ‘jerk line’ takes care of that because ushers and officers will come and eject serious troublemakers. “The problem is when opposing fans come to an away game and scream, drink, and bullyrag home-team fans. Adding alcohol can make things get ugly quickly. Maybe we can pass a new city ordinance to make them stay in Pittsburgh!” TRog

“Whatever rules the venue establishes should be published, posted, and even printed on the tickets. This way fans know what’s expected. Then it’s up to the fans to decide if they want to attend or not. If attendance suffers, I’m sure the rules would be adjusted.” P.C.

“If the players on the fields abide to the code of conduct, so should the fans, on all levels. Fans, especially sideline parents, forget this is the sports players game, not theirs.” O.R.

“Do we really need a code of conduct to act with consideration, dignity and respect around our fellow human beings and their children? Stay reasonably sober, refrain from foul language, don’t spill food or drink on other people or into

their space. In other words, be considerate of others around you who paid for seats and are also entitled to watch the game just like you are.” F.S.D.

“Yes, fans should conform to a code of conduct be it a youth, high school, college or pro game. Ideally it should be selfimposed where people conduct themselves in a respectful manner to those around them, players on the field and coaches and officials. Don’t make a scene, don’t embarrass or belittle anyone. Treat others as you would prefer to be treated. “That being said, I don’t realistically thing a code of conduct works for all people. There are always a few that are an embarrassment to the human race. If at all possible they should be asked to leave if selfcontrol is beyond their command. “Hate to say it but some people feel the need (maybe its empowerment for those who feel taken advantage in life) to make a jerk out of themselves. Give them their money back ... suggest that they stay away.” T.B.

“Fans at any type of event are sharing the stadium or arena with thousands of other people. These people often range

from children to grandparents. It is every person’s responsibility to behave in a way that does not disrupt or offend. Everyone should be able to enjoy the game and express their enthusiasm without spoiling it for those around them. Do unto others ...” R.V.

“Some behavior is not acceptable. Most is during a ‘sporting’ event. After all the players all have shown non-acceptable behavior! “Do not interfere with others space. No physical contact. But yelling for or against a team is OK. Control your language to what you would say to your grandmother! (I know there are some grandmothers it would not bother).” W.B.B.

“The fans at sporting events should be grown up enough to be able regulate their own behavior and not infringe upon others. “That means NO swearing, spitting (tobacco juice included), hitting, blocking the view, spilling of beverages on others, lewd T-shirts, drunken conduct, throwing up or belching. But isn’t that what your mother taught you anyway? “Use the manners that your mother would approve of and all would be fine. Unless your mother swore, hit, spit, got drunk ... oh well.” J.B.

“Have you ever been to an athletic event with a young child and had some idiot swearing and shouting at every young girl that moves. I haven’t, my kids are grown, but I have seen other families in this situation. “I’m glad that the Browns have installed their behavior

clause and have seen people escorted from the stadium, glad. When your paying big bucks, you don’t need foul mouth idiots spilling beer or making advances on anything that moves. “I’m not saying they can’t have a good time and be energetic about the game, but be considerate of others around them. If they can’t, they deserve to sit in the penalty box in security or Hamilton Co. jail. “Respect the Stripes, Big red C., and our city and make everyone feel much better.” D.J.

“Merely common courtesy and commen sense, both of which are in precious short supply these days ... especially for “sports” fanatics! J.G.

“Yes! Fans should have to conform to a code of conduct. Cincinnati fans should try making MORE noise when the Bengals and Reds need it. “This is the quietest sports town I know. Cincinnati needs some kind of noise making PEDs! Cliff Radel of the Enquirer blamed our “German Heritage.” Come on. Pittsburgh fans are louder than us when we play them. “The Reds playoffs were like Wimbledon last year until 2 outs in the ninth inning of the last game. Shhhhh! “We don’t need to scream and yell the whole time of course, but tame and lame seem to be the M.O. for most of this city. Be a part of the game, get your team pumped up, don’t wait for the home run. “As for ‘whiny birds’ at least Chuck D has Spirit and a sense of humor. The code of conduct is common sense, use it and we won’t need fan “rules.” T.J.F.

The code of the west

Recent incidents, including legal proceedings involving gun killings, have reminded me of the Code of the West, perhaps better remembered as the Cowboy’s Code of Conduct. Back in the days when the nation was a youth and in places where rattlesnakes abounded on the trail, our hardy forefathers lived and died by this code. Some of us can only remember the gunslinger’s law which says “shoot first and ask questions later.” This quip is a gross oversimplification of a complex situation. For instance the code says that when a stranger

Ragweed season begins in our area The Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency has recorded ragweed in recent pollen counts signifying ragweed has begun to bloom in Greater Cincinnati. Ragweed is a summer annual that produces abundant pollen and is the primary cause of hay fever. Although ragweed is already present, September tends to be its peak month and those who suffer from allergies may have increased symptoms during the next several weeks. Ragweed plants are dominant in the Midwest and produce billions of pollen grains which are easily caught by the wind and spread throughout the region. The severity of hay fever depends on the amount of pollen in the air and the Megan degree of Hummel COMMUNITY PRESS sensitivity of the person. GUEST COLUMNIST On cloudy, windless or rainy days, the average sufferer may have fewer symptoms due to little pollination and dissemination of the pollen. When the weather becomes hot, dry, sunny and windy, symptoms may spike and return. A frost usually ends the hay fever season for most sufferers. To reduce exposure to ragweed and other pollens and molds, the Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency recommends: » Avoid areas with freshly cut grass and avoid lawn care activities, such as raking leaves or working with compost. » Minimize outdoor activity between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. – when pollen levels are highest. » After being outdoors, it is best to shower and change clothing, as pollen can adhere to clothing, skin and hair. Be aware that pets can also bring pollen into your home. » Keep windows closed and use an air conditioner in the home and car as much as possible to reduce the amount of allergens entering. » Don't hang sheets or clothing outside to dry. Pollens can collect on them. » Contact an allergist or doctor for medical advice. The Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency tracks pollen and mold levels on weekdays and posts the counts by 10 a.m. at 513-946-7753 and SouthwestOhioAir.org. The higher the pollen and mold count is, the greater the likelihood that particles will make their way into the nasal passages and lungs and induce allergic symptoms. Additional information can be found in the Living with Allergies brochure, available for download at SouthwestOhioAir.org or mailed by request. Megan Hummel is public relations coordinator of the Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency.

Deer Park festival draws record crowd People grab a spot on the lawn at Chamberlin Park for the Ooh La La and the Greasers show at the Days in the Park festival on Aug. 4. THANKS TO MIKE RAPP By Leah Fightmaster lfightmaster@communitypress.com

Deer Park officials are considering their annual festival another success. The park board planned the Days in the Park festival for Aug. 2 through 4 in Chamberlin Park, 7640 Plainfield Road. Food, games, drinks, a petting zoo and live music drew record numbers of people each night of the festival. Sunday night was capped off with a fireworks show, the first for the park since the 1980s, park board chairman

John Perin said. He added that very few citations or disturbances were reported by the Deer Park Police Department throughout the weekend at the festival. Many of the park board’s events during the year are funded by money raised from the Days in the Park festival. Before paying the bills, the festival brought in about $56,000, Perin said.

Deer Park residents sought for awards By Leah Fightmaster lfightmaster@communitypress.com

Deer Park residents who think one of their neighbors helps keep the city beautiful has a chance to recognize them. City Council is looking for nominations from residents for its annual beautification recognition award program. Those chosen are recognized at a City Council meeting and given a yard sign that shows they won the award. Councilwoman Chris Hedger said they typically award 10

people each year. She added that they’ve only received four nominations so far, but hope people will take note of their neighbors and submit more. “It’s for anyone who helps keep Deer Park nice,” she said. Hedger added that someone who has won in the past can be nominated again. Council plans to recognize the winners at its Sept. 9 City Council meeting. Want more updates for Deer Park? Follow Leah Fightmaster on Twitter: @LCFightmaster.

Kevin Kolthoff from Deer Park Deli was one of nine other winners of the beautification award last year. Deer Park is looking to give 10 more awards this year.FILE PHOTO

Easy lasagna, healthy homemade power bars

Sausage lasagna using uncooked noodles For Darren, a Western Hills reader who saw a sausage lasagna recipe in a magazine at the doctor’s office. He said: “It called for uncooked noodles. I didn’t want to tear the recipe out, but it looked so good.” Here’s one from my files. There are special “no-cook” lasagna noodles you can buy. Leftovers can be frozen and microwaved to reheat. 1 pound favorite sausage 26-32 oz. favorite pasta sauce 3 ⁄4 cup water 2 eggs, beaten lightly 11⁄2 pounds (24 oz.) cottage cheese 1 ⁄2 cup Parmesan 1 ⁄2 teaspoon each: garlic powder, dried basil and oregano 9 uncooked lasagna noodles 3 cups mozzarella

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cook sausage. Drain. Stir in sauce and water. Simmer 10 minutes. Combine eggs, cottage cheese, Parmesan and seasonings. Spread 1⁄2 cup meat sauce into sprayed 13-inch by 9-inch pan. Layer with three noodles, a third of cheese mixture, meat sauce and mozzarella. Repeat twice. Cover and bake 45 minutes. Uncover, bake 10 minutes longer or until noodles are tender. Let stand 15 minutes before serving. Tip: Use a combo of beef and sausage, all beef or turkey sausage.

No-bake grain/gluten-free power bars

Daughter-in-law Jess found this on the Joyful Abode site. This is a proteinpacked bar for kids and adults alike. Great for packing into kids’ lunch boxRita es, too and Heikenfeld I like the fact that RITA’S KITCHEN they’re grain/gluten free. I can never eat just one. I renamed the recipe to fit my slight adaptation. Check out Joyful site for step-by-step photos and my blog for more power bar recipes. 2 ⁄2 cups favorite nuts and seeds (I used mixed nuts, flax and hemp seeds) 1 cup dried fruit (I used dried Michigan cherries, chopped) 2 cups shredded coconut 1 ⁄4 cup coconut oil 1 ⁄2 cup honey (I used raw honey) 1 tablespoon vanilla 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt Cinnamon to taste 1

Roughly chop 1 cup of nuts and seeds. Place in bowl. Process remaining nuts and seeds in processor, or by hand, to make a finer chop. Add to bowl. Add fruit and coconut. Pour oil, honey, vanilla, salt and cinnamon in pan and, over low heat, cook until it boils gently, then pour over fruit mixture and blend. Pour into sprayed 13-inch by 9-inch pan that has been lined with sprayed foil or parchment. Press mixture evenly into pan. Press real hard so mixture sticks together. Put plastic wrap on top to make pressing down easier. Cool completely and cut into bars. Can be frozen up to three months.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Don’t have coconut oil, which is a healthy oil? I believe a vegetable or

olive oil will work, it just won’t have that extra element of flavor.

Tips from readers’ kitchens

From reader MaryAnn G. regarding the roasted tomatoes recipes: “I roasted several per your directions and raided my herb garden for basil, rosemary and oregano. After roasting I let them

cool and removed the skin. After chopping them slightly, I tossed them (along with the delicious tomato broth) with some spinach tortellini and bacon. It made an amazing meal.”

on?” Watch it on Time Warner Channel 8 or 15. Diluting concentrated fruit juices for kids: Younger kids, especially those in sports, may benefit from diluted fruit juice (make sure it’s got 100 percent vitamin C). It’s easier to digest, will hydrate and provide energy. Use at least twice as much water as is recommended on label.

The requests I’ve gotten this week tell me a lot of you are in the same situation. Readers want easy main dishes (pasta being the most popular) and healthy snacks. So here are two of my favorites.

Parking is available on both levels of the church grounds. The barbecued halfchicken dinner with baked potato, coleslaw, roll, homemade dessert and beverage, is $9. Half portions are $5. The pulled chicken sandwich with chips, coleslaw, dessert and beverage costs $6, with half portions $3. Payment is by cash or check only. The long-running event is hosted by the St. Paul Men’s Group, whose volunteers spend hours grilling chicken halves on a cooker fashioned of concrete blocks that must be stored after each dinner -- and reerected the next year. “We served about 300 dinners last year and hope to exceed that figure this year with the new menu option,” said Ed Stagney of Kenwood, coordinator of the team. Bob Hancher of Blue Ash and Matt Neumann of Montgomery are in charge of cooking the meat, a process Stagney said includes frequent basting and laborious turning of grills loaded with chicken. Two men are required to turn the specially made grills, since each can hold 30 chicken halves – about 60 pounds.

flection for the Jewish community. Knowing that he has performed internationally, recorded cantorial music, and received numerous honors, it is a privilege to welcome him to Ohav Shalom.” Lubin was educated both in London and in the United States. In London, he graduated from the Cantorial School at the London School of Jewish Studies. In addition, he is a graduate of the College-Conservatory of Music of the University of Cincinnati where he obtained his bachelor’s degree and went on to receive his master of music degree (with distinction) at De Paul University. He also earned the doctor of music degree from the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York. Through his career, Lubin has served at synagogues in Dayton, Chicago, and most recently, at Congregation Beth El in Bethesda, MD, from which he retired. Lubin and his wife, Sandy, are the proud parents of three children and eight grandchildren. On the second day of Rosh Hashanah, following services, there will be a luncheon to honor Cantor Lubin. Reservations are required. Contact ohavoffice@fuse. net.

It was a banner year for scout advancement in Boy Scout Troop 674, with 14 young men earning the rank of Eagle Scout during the 2012-2013 school year. “We’ve had a lot of boys make it to Eagle Scout in the 54-year history of the Troop,” committee chair Mike Size said, “but 14 in one year probably sets a record for us.” The Troop, which is chartered to Church of the Saviour in Montgomery, is open to boys ages11-17 and has approximately 65 registered Scouts from several northeast suburbs. To earn the Eagle Scout rank, a Scout must earn at least 21 merit badges including 12 which are specifically required, be an active leader in the Troop, and of course, plan, lead and complete an Eagle service project for a nonprofit organization other than Boy Scouts. “We estimate that these 14 new Eagle Scouts have earned approximately 400 merit badges over the years and have contributed projects to our community that involved approximately 3,000 hours of work and thousands of dollars of materials,” offered David Hartkemeier, the Troop’s Scoutmaster. The beneficiaries for these 14 projects included seven different schools (Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy, E.H. Greene Intermediate School, Mars Hill Academy, Ohio Valley Voices, St. Xavier High School, Sycamore High School – two projects, and Symmes

Elementary School), parks in three municipalities (Montgomery, Sycamore Township and the West End), two churches (Church of the Saviour and Sycamore Presbyterian Church) and the Blue Ash YMCA. Projects spanned a wide range of installations including recycling bin
