Residential projects are popular

MADEIRA – City Councilman John Dobbs says Madeira is enjoying noteworthy success in residential development, despite the poor economy. “Have you been by Bradford Place or Madeira Pines in the past 60 days?” Dobbs said. “Both are bustling with activity. “There are numerous ‘sold’ signs in the Bradford Place development and lots of children playing in Madeira’s newest community, Madeira Pines.” Dobbs said everyone has been touched, one way or another, by suffering national, state and local economies in the past three years. “We have heard on the news that nothing is happening in residential construction,” Dobbs said. “But great things are happening in Madeira.” Here, Dobbs discusses residential development in Madeira:

“Construction is complete on four units and under way on nine others. Madeira City Council’s decision to grant a temporary, 50percent, property tax abatement has proved to be the right decision. “As the largest residential development in the area, more tax dollars will be generated sooner for the schools and community.”

Price range on the new units has been between $350,000 and $400,000.”

Infill Construction

“Infill construction is when an older house with limited appeal for resale, perhaps because of significant foundation issues, is torn down and a new, more marketable house is built in its place. “In the last 12 months, permits have been issued for six new single-family homes in various locations around the city. “Some infill construction has also taken place on vacant lots around the city. Several of these homes have been constructed in the Madeira Heights area and along Sanoma Avenue and Buck-

“Since Jan. 1, the city has issued $364,540 (five permits) in new value for residential construction with an average of $73,000/per permit. “While this is slightly lower than in previous years, it still indicates that property owners are willing to invest in their property because of their desire to remain in Madeira.” In the past several months, Dobbs said, many residential developers have approached Madeira to explore potential projects. “In 2011 we have seen a transformation from planning and

hoping positive development would happen to guiding that development through zoning, the Madeira Planning Commission and the architectural review process,” Dobbs said. “All of this development increases Madeira’s tax base and strengthens our community. “Developers have chosen to invest in Madeira because of our unique character, strong community feel and high-quality schools and new people have chosen to buy in Madeira for many of those same reasons,” Dobbs said. “The city council and planning commission remain committed to guiding development toward the highest and best uses for property regardless of whether it is commercial or residential development.”

Working on the railroad

The railroad crossing at Matson Avenue and Blue Ash Road in Deer Park was repaired by the Indiana and Ohio Railroad on Sept. 28 and Sept. 29. City council filed a formal complaint with the railroad earlier this year after the railroad failed to fix the railroad after fixing the crossing at Webster Avenue and Galbraith Road.

Where the money comes from

Madeirs Schools Treasurer Susan Crabill outlined where the revenue comes from for the Madeira school district. According to the 2011 financial report, the district Crabill receives $10 million from local real property taxes and personal property taxes. State support totals $2.7 million and $353,000 from federal stimulus money. Property tax allocation accounts for $2 million. Other revenue from the Kenwood Senior Star direct tax payment, student technology fees, student extracurricular participation fees and facility usage fees total $350,000. In 2012, the district will take a $1 million reduction in revenue with the loss of the federal stimulus funds, the business tangible tax reimbursement and the electric deregulation reimbursement.

About the Madeira School District levy

Continued from A1 sustain the school district for three years. All of the voter-approved operating levies are kept in the district’s general fund. District Treasurer Susan Crabill said in the 2011 financial report that $12.2 million, or 77 percent, of the district’s expenses come from staff salaries and benefits. District services such as building maintenance, school transportation, custodial service, student support service contracts, district insurance, fuel and other service account for 19 percent, or $2.6 million, of the budget. In an effort to keep district costs at a minimum, the district has made many changes over the last few years. In 2010, a geothermal heating, ventilation and air conditioning system was installed at the high school.

What it’s about: 6.9-mill school operating levy What it would do: Generate $2.18 million per year for Madeira schools How things are now: Implemented a 0% increase in employee salary compensation schedules for the current school year, continued to privatize and outsource custodial, transportation and food services. Renegotiated a reduced annual cost for the custodial and grounds services. Participated in purchasing groups lowering the cost of health insurance, materials, supplies, and services. Creatively and significantly reduced energy consumption. Eliminated six positions. What happens if it passes: Amounts to $209 a year for every $100,000 of a home’s market value as of Jan. 1 What happens if it fails: Taxes remain the same, but cuts may need to be made to the school district budget of programs, personnel, services and opportunities Argument for: In a district like Madeira property taxes make up 70 percent of the district revenue. The district last asked for an increase in taxes five years ago. The district has taken aggressive steps in reducing expenditures, however the loss of state and federal funding has been dramatic. To continue the current programs and services provided to the community of Madeira, the district must seek more revenue from its public or face budget cuts impacting programs and services. Argument against: No known opposition Who’s for it: Residents for Madeira Schools Who’s against it: No known opposition Web sites for more information: www.madeiralevy.com Occupancy sensors and lowered lighting levels were installed in all district buildings to help with reducing the district’s energy consumption.

Simon teamed up with Trisha Winland of downtown and Joyce Johnson of Kennedy Heights, both, like Simon, CFT members, and were handed a packet with a map of about half a dozen streets and cul-de-sacs in Reading. The map had dozens of dots on it – each a union household. They headed out in the raw, blustery weather and began their march through Reading – sometimes talking to people who came to the door, and leaving literature for those who weren’t home. “We know exactly who we are talking to,’’ Simon said. “The main message we are trying to deliver is that a ‘no’ votes means you want to get rid of Senate Bill 5. That’s what we want to make sure our people understand.” Across the state, thousands of volunteers – Democrats and union members – will be doing the same thing. And each time they go to a house where someone tells them he or she is on their side, they make a note of it; and that person’s name goes on the election day get-out-the-vote list.

Tapping tea partiers

Across town in an office suite in Terrace Park, about two dozen supporters of Senate Bill 5 – mostly veteran Republican campaign volunteers – were doing the same thing, only by phone. Working off a script and a list of names provided by the Ohio Republican Party, they were making calls – not only to urge them to vote yes on Issue 2 but also to vote yes on Issue 3, a constitutional amendment sponsored by tea party groups that would allow Ohioans to opt out of the mandatory health requirements of the health care reform law passed by congressional Democrats last year. “Vince Pagliaminto of Mt. Lookout, who was hired by the Ohio Republican Party to run the Terrace Park campaign office, said they are doing far more phone-banking than door-to-door canvassing. When voters on their side are contacted, Pagliaminto said, they are told about the early voting that begins today and the volunteers steer them to a website run by Building a Better Ohio,

“We know exactly who we are talking to. The main message we are trying to deliver is that a ‘no’ votes means you want to get rid of Senate Bill 5. That’s what we want to make sure our people understand.”

vote with us for any number of reasons – they are concerned about government spending, they are interested in education reform, or they are concerned about union influence. “I can’t tell you that the intensity of the ground game is as high as it is in a presidential or gubernatorial election, but it is certainly a lot higher than usual in a state ballot issue campaign,’’ Mauk said.

Rusty Griswolds tuning up for annual fundraiser By Heidi Fallon hfallon@communitypress.com

It’s a party with a purpose. More than 100 local charities will benefit from this year’s Rusty Ball on Friday, Oct. 22, at the Duke Energy Convention Center. It’s the fourth year the West Side band The Rusty Griswolds have taken to the stage to raise money for nonprofit groups like the Riverview-Delhi Hills Kiwanis Club and St. Williams’ autism program. Joseph Jones, a Delhi Township resident, is working behind the scenes to help the band. “I went to high school with Steve Frisch back when his band was the Free

Reins,” Jones said. “We’ve been friends ever since. “We wanted to have some sort of organization that would help provide assistance to people and groups right here.” After lots of conversations, the Spirit of Cincinnatus was launched as that nonprofit charitable organization. “We picked Cincinnatus as our icon of sorts because he is such an heroic figure and, I think, a figure the city doesn’t utilize enough.” Jones said the idea for the Rusty Ball was prompted by the numerous requests the band received to perform for fundraisers. “There were so many, they couldn’t do them all, so we decided to have one

really big concert to benefit as many organizations as possible,” Jones said. To date, Jones calculates the one-night concert has raised almost $600,000. The first year, he said, raised $87,000 for 52 charities. Last year, the sold-out event raised $302,000. This year, 119 charities will split the proceeds with their share determined by the percentage of ticket sales. “From the start, this has been our way of saying thanks by giving back to the community that has supported the Rusty Griswolds for so many years,” Frisch, a Deer Park resident, said.

many questions asked before it gets to city council.” Niehaus is confident that Madeira can make a go of street-legal golf carts. “I have sold real estate in Madeira for three decades with ReMax United Associates and chair the Madeira Senior Commission,” Niehaus said. “As a senior housing specialist and crusader for seniors aging in place, I believe allowing golf carts in the community would give us a gitchy edge that other neighborhoods are missing. “It would further emphasize the convenience and close proximity of all the amenities we have to offer, and provide a unique attraction to our small town,” Niehaus said. “Electric carts are super energy efficient and green, take up fewer parking spaces and are downright fun! “Some days I jump in my car and make two to three trips to downtown Madeira and may only put one mile on my car.” Niehaus expects people to raise concerns about safety and parking. “However, there are standards in place to address most of these issues – horn, windshield wipers, mirror, seat belts, head lamps, tail lamps, brake lamps, turn signals, reflectors and more,” Niehaus said.

Going global gets easier at Indian Hill High School By Forrest Sellers fsellers@communitypress.com

Going global has just been made easier for several Indian Hill teachers. Indian Hill High School social studies teachers Wendy Silvius and K.C. Kless attended the 2011 Ohio Global Institute at Ohio University. The institute shows teachers how they can bring a global perspective to their lessons, said Silvius. Silvius, who teaches geography, said she already incorporates global issues into her discussions, but the seminar provided a variety of web-based resources and networking opportunities to help teachers in their research. “News doesn’t cover international (subjects) nearly as much,” said Silvius. “A lot of times it’s up to the teachers to address these topics and bring attention to them.” Some of the topics covered by the Global Institute included hunger and rising food prices, access to drinkable water and gender issues in developing countries.

FORREST SELLERS/STAFF

Indian Hill High School social studies teachers Wendy Silvius, left, and K.C. Kless recently attended the Ohio Global Institute. The institute detailed ways teachers can bring a global perspective into the classroom. Kless said racial tolerance was an especially relevant topic addressed at the seminar and one that he plans to discuss in the classroom. “It was interesting to me how global education can be local if it’s tied into a certain area or topic,” he said. Kless, who also teaches Latin, said the institute was geared toward teachers at a variety of grade levels and subject areas. For example, a math teacher could prepare a lesson measuring the amount

of water loss in the polar ice caps. Instead of doing a broad search on global warming, the institute provided specific resources a teacher can use to find the information, according to Silvius and Kless. “It was energizing to be around people from throughout the state (who) were interested in bringing global issues to the forefront of their classrooms,” said Silvius.

UC Blue Ash College achieves highest enrollment UC Blue Ash College may be new in name, but the college has reached a milestone in its 40-plus year history: the highest enrollment ever. UCBA, formerly known as Raymond Walters College, is reporting a 4.1 percent increase in new student headcount, up 55 students over last year’s recordsetting standard and totaling 1,411 new incoming students (as compared to 1,356 last fall term).

The college’s new student number coupled with the more than 1,100 UC students taking classes on the Blue Ash campus means a total of 6,362 students will take all or some of their coursework at the location. This total reflects a 4.2 percent increase in UCBA students (both returning and new), up 213 students over the previous year. In addition, UCBA is enjoying increases in the number of student

course enrollments – a 3.2 percent increase over last fall, or 547 additional courses – and in the number of credit hours those students are taking – a 4.2 percent increase over autumn 2010 term or an additional 2,281 credit hours. While the official enrollment count day is the 15th day of the quarter, all indications are that these enrollment trends will hold steady, if not continue to increase

slightly, during this two-week period. Some of this growth can be attributed to a new academic program launching this fall. The technical bachelor’s degree in applied administration is designed as a “completer” program for those who already hold a technical associate’s degree, such as an associate of applied science or an associate of applied business. The program requires only two additional

years of coursework, fulfilling course standards necessary to finish a bachelor’s degree without the person losing any credits or having to start over academically. Classes are offered in the day, evening and weekend, and many online courses are available. For more information regarding the applied administration bachelor’s program, call 513-745-5785, email BTASinfo@rwc.uc.edu or visit www.rwc.uc.edu/btas.

Madeira students benefit from business partnerships As part of its district goals, Madeira City Schools has entered into student/business partnerships in the past year with GYRO, MSA Architects and Christ Hospital. Madeira High School sophomores and juniors are involved in a fourth business partnership with DEI, a design-build firm in Forest Park. Students work in two

teams as architects, interior designers, graphic designers, retail concept designers and 3D modelers on two DEI projects. They periodically visit the company’s office where they receive input and design advice from the DEI Design Team. At the conclusion of their experience, the students will present their building concepts to the DEI Management Team as well as the

Madeira City School Board Julie Speelman, the Madeira High School teacher leading the DEI partnership, described the program as “an avenue for students to experience a career they may be interested in and an excellent way to develop 21st Century Skills. Teams must communicate with each other, collaborate, and think critically and creatively.”

Kyle Neu of Madeira, a sophomore at Centre College, is spending the fall semester studying abroad in Strasbourg, France. Strasbourg is located just across the Rhine River from Germany, about three hours by high-speed train from Paris and about an hour north of Switzerland. It is sometimes called “the crossroads of Europe” because of its location at Europe’s center. Centre-inStrasbourg allows students to study European culture, politics and economics while furthering their study of German or French, and many Centre students travel extensively throughout Europe during their free time. Its famed Gothic cathedral, begun in 1176 C.E., sits on this island-city’s highest spot-the same spot on which sat a Roman fort when Julius Caesar was in the area during his Germanic campaigns of the first century B.C.E. Strasbourg’s political significance grows each year with the increasing importance of the European Parliament, the Council of Europe and the Court of Human Rights that are located there. Neu is the daughter of Linda Neu and Keith Neu of Madeira and is a graduate of The Seven Hills School.

Indianapolis Cathedral 26, Moeller 24

MONTGOMERY Moeller senior receiver Monty Madaris is the target of most Division I football powers. He spoke to The Community Press prior to Moeller’s final three games against three state champions from 2010: Indianapolis Cathedral (Oct. 14), Lakewood St. Edward (Oct. 22) and Louisville Trinity (Oct. 28).

Indianapolis Cathedral made its case for a spot among the elite Oct.14, thwarting Moeller’s monumental comeback and knocking off the previously undefeated Crusaders 26-24 on Drake Myers’ 40-yard field goal as time expired. “We knew we would have our hands full,” Moeller coach John Rodenberg said. “They’re a very good team.” The Irish built their lead on Moeller’s Senior Night and homecoming at Lockland’s Roettger Field before the Crusaders got back into the game on touchdown passes by junior quarterback Spencer Iacovone of 64 yards to senior wide receiver Monty Madaris and 15 yards to junior running back Keith Watkins. Iacovone completed the comeback with a one-yard plunge with 13 seconds left in the game. The time was being kept on the field because the clock malfunctioned in the last two minutes. Cathedral responded with a pass that put Myers into position for his field goal. “They made the play when they had to,” Rodenberg said. Iacovone finished 19-of-33 for 243 yards, but Moeller (7-1) gained just 87 yards rushing. Next up: the Crusaders are at Lakewood St. Edward, Saturday, Oct. 22. Mark Schmetzer/contributor

Q: Do you spend a lot of time in the weight room here? What do you bench? A: About 315. I do 225 about 10 times. Our weight training coach, (Jim) Huxel does a good job. Q: Are you having the season you thought you would? A: I’m having a good season. Madaris I think I can eliminate some of the mistakes I make in some games. I’m doing pretty well. Q: Everybody knew about you last year and you’re having a good year now. How many days go by that you don’t have some one emailing you or texting you asking, “Hey Monty, where are you going to go?” A: I don’t get any of those. Q: Are you down to a few choices yet? A: I’m not down to a few choices, but I’m only going to take officials to Florida State and Michigan State now. Those are the ones I’m for sure of right now. Q: You’re at a good place now. How has your career been here? A: I’m doing pretty well. My sophomore year I did

Madaris says the St. Xavier defensive backs have been the toughest for him this season. Regardless of the competition, Madaris leads the GCL-South in receiving yards. pretty good. My junior year, I kind of stuck out. (For) my senior year, I plan on making myself the best player in Ohio. Q: Your schedule (Moeller) - I think everyone looked at that and won dered how you would get through that. Not only are you getting through it, you’re winning. You have three state champions to wrap it all up. Does every one know about Moeller now? A: We plan on just playing Moeller football to beat them. (Lakewood) St. Ed’s and (Louisville) Trinity, those are the ones where we really have to toughen up. Those are going to be nailbiter games, I think. Q: A lot of teams are kind of one-dimensional, you guys aren’t. You have a lot of weapons.

A: Spencer (Iacovone) can run out of the backfield, Keith (Watkins) can, I can. We’ve got Brian Burkhart; he’s a truck, a bus. We have me and Mike (Means) on the outside and Max Foley, a slot receiver. We’re doing pretty good. Q: Have you always caught the ball? Did you run the ball way back when? A: I used to always be running back. I would be in the slot just to pass. We were primarily an all-run team at All Saints and the Sycamore Comets. Q: When you came here and they said you had to catch passes, were you dis appointed? A: I was deciding my freshman year to play corner or receiver. Coach told me to go out and catch balls. I decided this was what I liked.

Receiver Joe Bodnar had five touchdowns as the Mustangs cruised to a 49-0 halftime lead on their way to the 63-point pasting of the Wildcats. Quarterback Zack Jansen threw three touchdowns to Bodnar, plus he had a nine-yard scoring run and kickoff return for six. Timmy James and freshman Colin Voisard also scored twice for Madeira who goes to 8-0. Next up: The Mustangs (7-0) are at Taylor Oct. 21. Deer Park (16) will host Indian Hill Oct. 21.

Finneytown 28, Indian Hill 18

Finneytown senior running back Marcus Owens rushed for 201 yards on 23 carries and a touchdown and junior running back Ladarrus Crump added 21 carries for 106 yards and a touchdown. Indian Hill senior quarterback Tyler Marrs was 17 of 27 for 215 yards and one passing touchdown while adding another touchdown rushing. Next up: The Braves (5-3) are at Deer Park Oct. 21. Q: Do you miss defense? A: Some. I’m trying to get coach Rodenberg to get me out there some at safety. He’s deciding. He might put me out there the last two weeks. Q: Are you looking forward to that? A: Yes, sir. Q: What’s the best thing you do as a receiver? The speed? The hands? The total package? A: Getting open. That’s my specialty. I use my speed and quickness to get open. I just don’t let DBs collide me

at the line or anything. Q: Who’s been the toughest DB on you? A: I would have to say St. X’s. They have like cover two. It’s hard to read. They would shift motion to confuse you a little bit. Q: When are you taking your visits? A: I’ve scheduled some for the ninth or 10th week of our season, and I’ll take some after the season. Q: Have you been on any others? A: I went to Ohio State.

Lady Braves postseason kicks into gear By Scott Springer sspringer@communitypress.com

INDIAN HILL – Coach Amy Dunlap’s Indian Hill Lady Braves soccer squad is in a familiar position. Just like last year, they’ve had a dominant Cincinnati Hills League season going into the tournament. What’s different is that Madeira is not on the horizon in the postseason as the Amazons are now Division III. Last November, Madeira ended Indian Hill’s unblemished record and season with a 1-0 win. This fall, the Lady Braves start with the winner of Taylor/Goshen Oct. 20. The DII competition looming ahead is Wyoming, Ross, McNicholas and Talawanda. Of those, Indian Hill beat Wyoming 2-0 Sept. 29. “Wyoming was injured for awhile. They’re healthy now, so I think they’ll be dangerous come tournament time,” Dunlap said. Liz Slattery, a junior midfielder, has been Indian Hill’s scoring leader as well as the CHL leader ahead of Wyoming’s Michelle Jolson. “She’s done great,” Dunlap said. “Liz is a great offensive leader and she does great work defensively. Together, the (Slattery)

sisters work very well. One leads our offense and one leads our defense.” Maddie Slattery is a senior defender who can score and teams up with the likes of Liz Dammeyer and Jeannette Jinkinson on Indian Hill’s stingy defense. “They are part of last year’s team and this year’s team defensively,” Dunlap said. “Last year we gave up five goals, this year it’s just a few more. That’s pretty impressive. Our defensive starters and goalkeeper work well together and cover for each other. It is a special group of players.” In goal for the Lady Braves is Olivia Ribariu. “She is doing great,” Dunlap said. “For her first season as the varsity head keeper she has surpassed expectation. She’s believing in herself, the team’s believing in her and we are just really excited about how she’s playing.” Of course, Indian Hill usually has a lead to work with and that’s thanks to their powerful offense that features five players among the top 10 scorers in the league. “I think that’s good,” Dunlap said. “If somebody’s being marked or somebody’s not having a good day, there’s someone ready

to step up and take the lead. It’s constantly changing.” Paige Gloster, Taylor Jackson and Rachael Ballish complement the Slattery sisters on both ends of that list. “Liz (Slattery) initiates a lot and does finish a lot, but our three frontrunners are all equally dangerous,” Dunlap said. “I’m not sure I could pick a ‘most dangerous’ out of that crew.” Junior Taylor Jackson has

Plus, freshmen Sophie Bell, Sydney Gloster and Macy Miller have been included in the mix. The Lady Braves tournament opener is a home contest Oct. 20.

I

f your mom lives by herself, it’s only natural to worry about her during the course of your day. After all, you remember a time when she was constantly on the go.

Nowadays, she stays home more and more. You find yourself constantly wondering: Is she lonely? Is she safe? Is she happy? Help quiet your worries by looking into senior living at Amber Park. Many seniors are energized with a whole new zest for life as they socialize with people their own age, people they can relate to. She’ll be too busy rediscovering some of the things she loves to do like exploring the Cincinnati Museum Center, shopping at Kenwood Towne Center or taking in a Broadway play in Cincinnati’s Theater District. And you’ll feel good, too, knowing that your mom is safe and happy. See for yourself why seniors living at Amber Park experience an invigorating sense of independence, freedom and optimism.

Allie hit an eight iron on the 112-yard seventh hole on her way to a 38, making her medalist. Vera Hayslip is Satterfield’s coach. Making it doubly interesting is the fact that her father, Dick Satterfield, made his fourth career hole-in-one on the Sunday before that (Sept. 4).

VIEWPOINTS LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Vote ‘no’ on charter amendment

In 1959 some very fine Madeira people were given the task of writing a charter for our community. The charter was written “to simplify the form of goverment which would otherwise be imposed when Madeira becomes a city in 1960 or 1961 eliminating some of the more complicated requirments of a non-charter city goverment.” On Aug. 4, 1959, the voters of Madeira voted for the adoption of the proposed charter. In 1959 Madeira had less than half of the population that we have today. If you resided in Kenwood Hills, on Cherokee, Apache or anywhere else in the old Kenwood area you were not in Madeira. The wise men and women responsible for our city charter were concerned that there needed to be ample representation on city council and that there needed to be just as importantly citizen representation on the planning commission. In 1959 the voters decided that planning commission would consist of nine members appointed by city council. No city council has ever suggested that there should be less then nine and to the contrary there have been disscussions of adding aditional members. On the November ballot you are asked to reduce the number of planning commission members to seven with no mention that there are currently nine. This change to the Madeira charter shown on the ballot as item number 50 – Proposed Charter Amendment (Ordinance No. 11-17B) should be voted down. Less representation on planning commission for a community double the size of the 1959 population is a bad idea . Please join me, vote “no” on this proposed charter amendment. Douglas Oppenheimer Madeira

Position Deer Park for future success

Every community needs a vision for the future. I am excited about the possibilities that await our community. Now is the time to move this city forward. This Nov. 8, residents will have the opportunity to vote for a new mayor. With a change in leadership, coupled with the city’s 100year anniversary celebration in 2012, now is time for us to focus on rebuilding and strengthening the foundations that built this community. I first got involved with the city

of Deer Park in April 2004. Appointed to the Chamberlin Park Board, I was able to volunteer my time in a way that allowed me to give back to the Shawn Gavin community. In Community 2007, I become of the Press guest chairman Days in the Park columnist Festival. Since that time the festival has grown into a signature

event for city, attracting more than 10,000 attendees this year alone. In 2008 I was appointed to the city’s first Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee. A group of residents and business owners meeting monthly for over a year and half. Under the direction of a professional planning and design firm I was able to participate in laying out a vision for the future growth and development of Deer Park. This plan for revitalizing the city and subsequent passage by city council is what inspired me to

become even more involved with the future of Deer Park. Elected to city council in 2009, I created yet another opportunity to get involved with the city. Not as a politician, but as a resident wanting to give back. I have no interest in being politician. In fact I believe there is no need for party politics at the local level. My only desire is to do my part, to help insure that this city survives another 100 years. Shawn Gavin is a member of Deer Park City Council. He is running for mayor of Deer Park.

Is change good? Is this case, yes Due to the upcoming election, I have been asked, “Ron, why did you switch teams?” My answer has been simple and direct, “I want to be part of the solution not part of the problem.” Most people in Deer Park know that Shawn Gavin, Tony Proctor and I ran successfully for the three council at large seats two years ago. I had no axe to grind. I only wanted to get involved and help set the direction for our city. On our first day in council, there was an honest attempt by the mayor and the current council members to befriend us and welcome us as peers rather than opponents. In my opinion, because we were new and had just ran against “them” we rejected their attempt at solidarity and chose to remain opponents. After a couple of months of not being able to agree on much of anything, I began to

look for ways that we could agree on the issues we were dealing with. Not long after, I realized the mayor and current council had a Ronnie sincere interest in Tolliver the city and its My team Community citizens. was simply pickPress guest ing fights on columnist issues that didn’t really matter. We were trying to seize control rather than seizing the opportunity to get things done. I told my “teammates” that I was no longer going to fight with the mayor and council and that I was going to work with them to get something done. I then went to Mayor Dave Collins and told him the same

What if we owned the insurance company? Consider health care from a different perspective. Who is getting rich from health care? If you have worked 30-40 years, you and your employer(s) have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars insuring your medical care, and that of your family. It is likely that you have not needed to use much of the medical care that was available to you; so, where did all this money go? The medical community did not receive much; and, your employer did not pocket the money. You did not pocket any of this expense; in some cases, you may have barely been aware of the costs involved. Large corporations that furnish medical benefits to their employees hire people who are in excel-

lent mental and physical health. They extensively test for this. This is to reduce their exposure to higher medical costs. Their probability of high medJames Baker ical expense is Community low; so, they purinsurance Press guest chase with very high columnist deductibles, and they self-insure for the balance, paying the high deductibles for the employee. This saves them many hundreds of thousands of dollars in insurance costs per year. Large corporations also use Social Security as part of their

retirement packages, showing their employees, in writing, how the combination of Social Security and their pensions will affect their retirement. They use this both as a tool to attract prospective employees, and for the retention of current employees. Old people have a certain expectation of medical services, when they need them, as the aftermath of having paid into the system for all of those years. Yet, the monies paid out are long gone, and they were not used to pay for future services. What if … we owned the insurance company? A private mutual health insurance company, where every policy holder owned one share, there was only one class of stock, and no one could buy

Indian Hill farm rises to breadmaker’s need

Turkey Red wheat from the Great Plains grows at Turner Farm in Indian Hill.

Gannett News Service

The price that Blue Oven Bakery has been paying for bread flour has gone through the roof lately. It’s been hard for the small, local business to keep its artisan loaves affordable. So, owners Mark and Sara Frommeyer decided to grow their own wheat for flour. Never mind that the kind of hard winter wheat needed for their crusty, spongy Europeanstyle hearth breads has never been grown in the Ohio Valley, or that neither of them is a farmer. They’ve made it happen. On the year’s hottest day, Mark Frommeyer, a graduate of Northern Kentucky University, and two farmers from Turner Farm in Indian Hill harvested 110 pounds of winter wheat. An extreme solution to a problem, perhaps, but Blue Oven has always been a hard-core do-ityourself enterprise. Mark built its first wood-fired oven by hand on their small family farm in Williamsburg, and Sara mixes their two dozen varieties of bread from scratch, using many local ingredients. For most of the breads, she doesn’t use commercial yeasts, but cultivates her own natural sourdough leavening. The couple hand-sells it, too, slicing off tastes at farmers markets throughout this region, hooking customers who come back and line up for a loaf of “Bad Boy” or Ohio Grist or French baguette. Though they use locally grown cornmeal, honey and herbs, they’ve long wanted to use local wheat. A lot of wheat is grown locally, but it’s a soft variety, not the kind needed for bread. “Hard wheat has the gluten you need to create structure. It also produces a more rich, complex flavor,” Mark said. “And the Red Turkey heirloom wheat we use is definitely even more complexly flavored.” Hard wheat is grown in the Great Plains, where it’s planted in the fall, wintered over, and then harvested in early summer.

Blue Oven break bakery owner Mark Frommeyer (left) walks along with the harvester as it cuts the first crop of Turkey Red Wheat at Turner Farm in Indian Hill. Farmers are Dave Lemen, center, and Mike Steele, driving the tractor. Because the climate is so damp here, the hard wheat is likely to succumb to root rot and leaf rust in the spring. But the Turkey Red wheat, organically grown in Kansas, is an heirloom variety, brought to the Plains by Mennonite settlers in the 1870s. It has been almost completely replaced in wheat country by new varieties that offer a higher yield: 60 bushels an acre compared with 20 or 30. Those new wheats would never grow here, experts agree. But the Kansas farmers who still grow Turkey Red thought this variety might. It was originally grown in the Crimea, part of Ukraine, where weather conditions are similar to those here. “Their feeling was also that this continent was covered with wild wheats until we destroyed them all,” said Mark Frommeyer. “So they thought we should definitely go for it.” Frommeyer approached Turner Farm to grow the first crop. The organic non-profit farm has lovingly cultivated its soil, and since this wheat is planted in the fall and grows over winter, it had

yield was about 25 pounds an acre, which is quite good for this variety. “It was definitely because of the soil,” said Frommeyer. There was no root rot, despite an extremely wet spring. The whole wheat berries are now stored in a grain wagon he borrowed from a farm in Alexandria, Ohio, which he pulled behind

his pickup truck. “I drove it down when it was empty at about 25 miles an hour, and drove it back at about 10,” he said. The wheat should be dry and ready to mill in the fall. Despite the amount of labor that went into it, Frommeyer figured it still costs him about half as much as wheat trucked in from Kansas.

space for about 6 acres. Turner Farm also happened to have a combine to harvest the wheat. It’s an old-fashioned machine, pulled behind a tractor, that cuts, threshes and winnows the wheat. It had been in a barn for 20 years. “It took some tweaking,” said Frommeyer, but it worked. They estimated the Turkey Red

Get ready, Madeira: HeartChase is coming Get your game on – HeartChase is coming to Madeira. The American Heart Association’s newest program, HeartChase is an urban race that offers the community a creative way to explore their neighborhood, have a good time and contribute to an important cause. This inaugural event will take place at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12, in downtown Madeira. Touted as “Minute to

Win It” meets “The Amazing Race,” HeartChase is a community-wide competition to solve clues and complete activities that engage friends and families of all ages in a race to the finish line. HeartChase participants must compete as a team of two to five members and will be given a series of clues that will lead them around Madeira scavenger hunt-style. For added fun, all clues will be given via

QR codes for Smartphones. “We are so excited that Madeira was selected to pilot HeartChase,” said Hali Abner, HeartChase chair. “HeartChase will allow participants to take a ‘tour de Madeira’ while having fun completing challenges. I think this will be a fun adventure for the community and a great way to raise awareness about the American Heart Association.” HeartChase clues will lead teams to various

checkpoints around Madeira where they will have to a complete a task before they can move to the next spot. Tasks will be fun and engaging and each team will try to complete them in the quickest time to win the race. The winning team will win a special prize. The HeartChase committee is comprised of entrepreneurs and small business owners in Madeira who are encouraging the community to “get out & explore” the

downtown shopping district. Committee members include: Hali Abner, event chair, owner/founder of BurBBitt.com; Steve Shaw, logistics chair, Stephen K.

Blending up a batch of Don’s Delicious Dressing “marry.” If you like French or Catalina dressings and want to try your hand at making your own, this recipe is a “must try.”

Combine:

1 cup canola oil 3 ⁄4 cup sugar 1 ⁄3 cup ketchup 1 ⁄4 cup clear vinegar Worcestershire to taste – start with a generous teaspoon Pinch of salt Small onion, grated – onions can be strong, so start out with a couple tablespoons. I chunked up a couple tablespoons and let that whirl in the blender with the rest of the ingredients.

Meringue ghosties for Halloween

I saw a photo of these in Pillsbury’s cooking magazine for Halloween. They were too cute. So I made a batch, using my own recipe. I will tell you I had to practice a little with making them. I just scooped up what didn’t look right and put the mixture back in the bag to re-form the ghosties. Start piping the head first and then go back and forth horizontally, making arms and body. 1

You can make this by hand, in a blender or food processor. I use a blender. Go to taste on the onion. Don suggests making it ahead for flavors to

Some tasty meringue ghosties for Halloween snacking. Mini chocolate chips for eyes (or other candy) Heat oven to 200 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or baking mats. Beat whites, cream of tartar, extract and salt on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is almost dissolved. If you’re nervous about high speed, you can use medium and it will take a bit longer. Spoon some of the mixture into a large plastic bag, smoosh out air and close bag. Cut off a small corner of bag. Squeeze bag to pipe out ghost shapes. Stick in mini chips for eyes. Bake one hour and turn oven off but leave meringues in oven with door closed for eight hours. These will keep a week if

A salad dressed with Don Deimling’s Delicious Salad Dressing

Salads are a big part of mealtime at our house. I try to make homemade dressings as much as I can, and the simpler, the better. That’s why I love the dressing I grew up with: garlic, l e m o n juice, olive oil, salt & p e p p e r. But my family likes the French Rita type dressHeikenfeld ings, too. One of Rita’s kitchen my all t i m e favorites is from friend and Milford reader, Don Deimling. In fact, I took supper over to Don and his wife, Carol, last week and wanted to make it special. So I dressed the salad with Don’s own recipe for what I call a country French type dressing. Don shared the recipe years ago in our kids’ school cookbook for St. Louis School in Owensville. That salad dressing is one of the most popular in the book. It’s a bit different from the norm, and after you make it, you’ll know why it’s been dubbed “Don’s delicious salad dressing.”

Calling home from overseas remains a very expensive proposition these days but I found the cost can be cut dramatically if you sign up for the right service and have the right equipment. When I was overseas last year I signed up for the Skype service at $6.99 a month, and was able to call home using my iPod touch and a Wi-Fi connection. I found many restaurants and stores had free Wi-Fi service so the cost to call home was limited to that Skype fee. This year I found the Skype service price dropped to $2.99 a month for calls from anywhere in the world to the United States. I signed up once again but this time I had an iPhone 4 with me. Everything was the same as last year, only this time I didn’t have to put my phone away when traveling overseas – I just turned it on “airplane mode” so I could not send or receive calls by accident and incur roaming fees. I again looked for WiFi locations so I could call

This event is sponsored by:

h o m e u s i n g Skype. The Skype pay service allows you to call landline phones Howard Ain not just Hey Howard! computers. Another big difference this time was the iPhone 4 has a Face Time video phone application. I called my brother in New York over the Skype service and he then called me on his iPad 2 using Face Time. I was able to see him clearly and he saw me. I gave him a live view of a street in Italy and was able to walk with the phone quite a distance showing him all the sights until the Wi-Fi signal was lost. I repeated this same procedure with my sons in Cincinnati – one of them was able to see my Face Time picture on his iPod touch while the other was able to view things on his

iPhone 4. The chance to be able to do real-time video from the middle of a street or a cruise ship was quite remarkable. My brother and sons said the pictures they received were very good, comparable to or even better than that from Skype – and the setup was quick and easy. This time while overseas I found there were more WiFi areas than before, but most were locked so you could not use them. My wife says sometimes I spent more time on the phone giving Face Time tours of the area than I did talking with people around me. Bottom line, this year I once again was able to call home for just pennies using Skype and Wi-Fi connections – but I was also able to give remarkable video tours of some of the sights I was seeing “live” from overseas.

Crossroads Hospice seeks ‘Ultimate Givers’

Senior services receives accreditation

The Council on Accreditation has informed the Cincinnati Area Senior Services Inc. it has been reaccredited. The council’s reaccreditation is an objective and reliable verification that provides confidence and support to an organization's service recipients, board members, staff and community partners. Cincinnati Area Senior Services connects older adults with resources to help them maintain their independence. From Mealson-Wheels to guardianship services to transportation, CASS serves more than 250,000 meals and provides more than 46,000 trips for Greater Cincinnati

seniors annually. For more information about CASS, visit www.CASSdelivers.org or call 513-721-4330. The COA reaccreditation process involves a detailed review and analysis of both an organization's administrative operations and its service delivery practices. All are “measured” against national standards of best practice. These standards emphasize services that are accessible, appropriate, culturally responsive, evidence based, and outcomes-oriented, In addition, they confirm that the services are provided by a skilled and supported workforce and that all individuals are treated with dignity and respect.

Join Chabad center in Torah celebration The holiday of Simchat Torah is always an outstanding citywide event at Chabad Jewish Center Lots of dancing and rejoicing with the Torah are the highlights of the holiday. The holiday of Simchat Torah is the completion of the year-round public reading of the Torah (Bible) scroll in synagogues. On Thursday evening Oct. 20, seven hakafot (circlings) are made around the Bimah, singing and dancing with the Torah scrolls. On the morning of Simchat Torah Friday, Oct. 28, the final portion of the Torah was read, completing the yearly cycle. Then the reading starts at the beginning. Thus, those in the Jewish faith continue to nourish themselves from the infinite wisdom of God’s Torah – the eternal force that has bound them together and sustained them for more than 3,300 years. A special Children’s Only program featuring a kid’s menu buffet, Israeli dancing with Idit Moss and special Simchat Torah flags and Torah scrolls will be led by Youth and Family Directors Rabbi Berel and Ziporah Cohen from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The main festivities begin at 7:30 p.m. with sushi, martinis, and lots of dancing . “Come and join us for an aspiring and happy holiday celebration. Just bring yourself, children, grandchil-

dren, friends and lots of spirit, and we’ll provide the rest,” said Chana Mangel co-director Chabad Jewish Center. Simchas Torah is a time for kids, dancing, singing, refreshments, flags and lots of fun. It is also a time to celebrate the Torah, yet instead of opening it and studying its meaning, it is tied closed and danced with. Studying is dependent on a person’s knowledge, but dancing is something everyone can do. The group holds hands, join in a circle and unite around the Torah. It is the liveliest celebration of the Jewish year. The scrolls stay closed because tonight scholarship isn’t needed, but feet are needed for dancing. Plenty of L’Chaim will be available as participants dance and rejoice with the Torah. All are welcome, regardless of background or affiliation. Admission price is a big smile, an open heart and lots of spirit. For further information, call 793-5200 or visit www.ChabadBA.com. The Chabad Jewish Center is at 3977 Hunt Road.
