BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Memoir traces three generations of ‘tenacity’ By Kelly McBride kmcbride@communitypress.com

Public works crews bundled up to tend to the streets, but it was advance preparation that kept the streets clear and lightened the workload. Sharonville Public Works Director Joe Kempe said a crew of six worked for more than five hours Sunday night, prepping the streets for Monday morning’s sheet of ice. “Then, we brought in another two guys to drive around the city to make sure any spots that were missed got treated,” Kempe said.

“We had to do extra saltthrowing and added calcium chloride because below 20 degrees, salt is not very effective by itself,” Kempe said. “That allows the salt to perform better. Temperatures sunk below zero on Monday and were forecast to be even lower today. Public works crews in Wyoming came in to work on Sunday, too, salting the roads in advance of the deep freeze. “This morning we did a little touch up on the hills,” Public Works Director Terry Huxel said. “It’s just very cold.”

Both officials reported more salt use this year so far than in the past two combined. Compared to two years ago, we didn’t need anything hardly,” Huxel said. “We’ve gotten hit pretty good so far this year.” Wyoming received a delivery of calcium chloride on Monday, as well as truckloads of salt to fill the salt barn to its 300,000 ton capacity. Kempe said Sharonville’s salt barn is still nearly full. “This weather has definiteSee FREEZE, Page A2

A former Wyoming teacher has written a book chronicling her family through generations of challenges that illustrate the power of determination. Isabelle Stamler taught in Wyoming schools for 30 years, raising two sons with her husband, and retiring nearby. The stories of her mother and grandmother span nearly a century and thousands of miles, from Belarussia to New York, and finally to Cincinnati. “These stories that I have written have been in my head all of my life,” Stamler said of her book, “Sarah’s Ten Fingers.” A child of Russian Jewish immigrants who fled for their lives from the Soviet Union, she credits her grandmother Sarah, whom she described as wily, brilliant and illiterate. It was a revolution, the death of Czarist Russia marking the birth of the Soviet Union. “She couldn’t read or write, but was smarter than all of us put together,” Stamler said of the single mother of six children. “It starts with a very smart woman who wanted her family to have something better than she had.” The book tells of her grandmother’s determination as she scoured battlefields in Russia, immediately after an upheaval, when the steam was still rising from the bodies.

"Sarah's Ten Fingers" is available on Amazon.com and at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Hyde Park.PROVIDED

“She went to the battlefield, and she would skin the horses for the hides, to make money so they could get out of there.” When she arrived in America, “she lost her capability because she didn’t know the language,” Stamler said. “So, her children took over. “There is strong will in this family,” she said. “I thought it was normal, but it was not. “It was a very big gift.” Stamler is sharing that gift through the book, available on Amazon.com, and at JosephBeth Booksellers in Norwood, where she will hold a book-signSee MEMOIR, Page A2

Maple Knoll jazzes it up

Maple Knoll Village welcomes a classic jazz band for a concert to benefit two public radio stations. The group, Bone Voyage, will perform 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 19, at Maple Knoll, 11100 Springfield Pike. Tickets are $10 in advance by calling 782-2427, and will be available at the door. Money raised through the event will benefit radio stations WMKV (89.3FM) and WLHS (89.9FM). “Bone Voyage is a fantastic extension of our ongoing concert series,” WMKV station director George Zahn said. “We’re thrilled to play them on

the air as one of Cincinnati’s top jazz bands, and the band is performing as a benefit for public radio.” Bone Voyage was formed in 2011 by trombone players Tom Hyatt and David Heldeman. That’s where the name originated: Hyatt plays valve trombone and Haldeman plays slide trombone. The group, which also includes Dave Petrik, Steve Strider, Jim Clark, Bart Johnson and Martin Giesbrecht, has been playing venues including Cactus Pear in Blue Ash recently, and members have played around the Cincinnati area since the 1970s.

“Bone Voyage is a regional treasure and the Maple Knoll Auditorium in Springdale is a wonderful place to hear great music,” Zahn said, “plus there’s free parking. “It’s an affordable and fun afternoon with live music.” WMKV is an independent public radio station that has been in operation for nearly 18 years, and is the only station in the country owned by a continuous care retirement community. The station plays nostalgia, classic radio comedy and drama, and information programs. Programming is simulcast on WLHS.

Firefighters honored for exemplary service By Kelly McBride

kmcbride@communitypress.com

The Sharonville Fire Department has honored three members who set examples beyond the call of duty. Fire Chief Ralph Hammonds presented the first-ever Walt Hoppe Leadership Award to Assistant Chief John Mackey. The award, named for the former assistant fire chief who died in August, recognizes firefighters who show leadership in a way that supports the mission of the fire department. “For Walt Hoppe, citizens always came first,” Hammonds said during City Council’s Dec. 17 meeting, when he an-

award that was topped with a bell, which he rang in tribute. Hoppe served as a Sharonville firefighter for 38 years, retiring as an assistant chief. “He kept the community at the forefront,” Hammonds said of Hoppe. “John does that all the time, balancing the needs

of the department with the community.” Hammonds presented two other awards during the council meeting. Firefighter Jeff Vaughn was recognized as Sharonville’s Firefighter of the Year. “He has gone above and beyond expectations,” Hammonds said of

the firefighter who also serves in the Air Force. The chief cited Vaughn’s volunteerism and willingness to work a demanding schedule. A third award was given for a firefighter’s heroic act during a fire earlier in 2013. Ian Obenshain was among the crew that re-

It’s a couple months out of the year that kids pray for their school to close, and road conditions make a 30-minute commute a full-day event, however to farmers it means little to no commission for a couple months. Gorman Heritage Farm is no different. Set on 122 acres, the farm is a non-profit organization that teaches children and adults the importance of agriculture and what it means to be environmentally cautious. However during the freezing temperatures it is near impossible to grow vegetation that would otherwise benefit the local community, and the number of visitors dwindles down as the temperatures do, so how does the farm stay alive? “Dedicated volunteers are the driving force in keeping the animals safe and happy, they are another set of eyes and ears to address any animals’ needs,” said Kelsey Berger, the property and farm director and who has been working with Gorman Farm for more than two years. During this time of the season Kelsey says water, food, and shelter are es-

sentials for keeping animals happy and healthy. By using heated poultry waterers, the animals have a consistent supply of water throughout the day to prevent dehydration, and the feed is increased to make sure the animals are taking in enough calories to keep themselves warm. Volunteers also take in extra amounts of hay and board up open windows to prevent drafts and keep the animals warm. Gorman Heritage Farm goes the extra mile to insure the animals and farmyard in the wintertime is safe and comfortable around the clock. – By Jennifer Horsting, intern

Schools near allotment of calamity days Princeton City Schools has used three of its five calamity days, an unusual number so early in the school year, according to Ed Theroux, director of student services for Princeton. “It’s unprecedented, meaning that we have not used this many days so early as long as I can remember, which is since 2000,” Theroux said.

The district canceled school only once last year. Today’s decision was made with temperatures in mind, as the low plunged below zero. “As always, the safety of our students is our priority,” Wyoming Superintendent Susan Lang said. “With Wyoming being a neighborhood school where many students walk or bike, and with students at two of our schools walking outside to change classes, drastic temps were reason enough to close,” Lang said. – By Kelly McBrde, kmcbride@communitypress.com

ing at 6p.m. Monday, Jan. 13. In the United States, Stamler’s mother fell in love with a man of privilege, but when the Great Depression hit, and he couldn’t find a job, he deserted her mother and his infant daughter. Isabelle was just a baby when her mother, like her grandmother, gathered the resolve to move forward. “I was raised with this wonderful love,” Stamler said. She grew up in the poor section of the Bronx, and then went to college. “My husband and I married young and moved to Cincinnati where, much to my surprise, I became an Ohioan,” she said. “But I will never forget the fact that I was born and raised in New York.” She worked in the Wyoming school system before moving to the city, choosing it for its superior education.

Isabelle Stamler chronicles three generations of her family's determination in "Sara's Ten Fingers."PROVIDED

A teacher of language arts and social studies, she started the gifted program in Wyoming, as well as Holocaust education. “Wyoming was very supportive,” Stamler said. “It was a very fulfilling career.” Her writing came during retirement, when she had time on her hands and energy to spare. She hopes readers will take away two messages from her book. “First is how strong women can be when the world doesn’t allow them to be strong,” Stamler said, “when the world says they should take a

secondary position. “Second is what a miracle the United States of America is. “My family was no better than terribly persecuted peasants. They came here. “The book is called ‘Sarah’s Ten Fingers’ because she would hold up these 10 fingers and ask: ‘Which one is expendable?’ “She managed to do the impossible because she was smart, she was strong, and I think the book speaks of what human people can do under the worst of circumstances.”

MND students experience the simple life in Liberty, KY Mount Notre Dame students went to Liberty, KY, on a service trip and to get a taste of a more simple way of life – to slow down, breathe and get closer to God. Liberty is a small town tucked into the hills of central Kentucky, and home to many wonderful people and a slower pace of life. For seven years, students and adults have visited Liberty to work with the residents who live lives focused on simplicity and faith. The weekend of Oct. 24-27, 56 students and 12 adults went to experience the way of life in Liberty. While in Liberty, the group worked on several organic farms (picking, planting, sorting, watering, preparing the ground, cleaning plants, trimming), helped elderly and disabled, spent time with residents at the non-profit Galilean Children’s Home, helped install electrical wire in a community church, shoveled manure, helped with construction projects, spent time with the children of the community who have

been through some major tragedies the past two years, and much more. The MND team also developed a sense of community among participants and friends in Liberty: together they played volleyball, enjoyed folk music,

have bonfires, lay under the stars and reflect about life. “I believe that no one can really understand what Liberty is until they experience it themselves. To say that Liberty is educational is an understatement and I look forward to the

new stories, the new lessons that I will encounter on future trips,” said MND student from the class of 2016, Maria Beckman of Loveland, who participated in the trip. MND makes the trip to Liberty three times a year, and they

often do a Christmas visit to see the local play. The organizer of the trip, Todd Forman, MND faculty member, has been taking students and adult chaperones to Liberty since1988. This is Forman’s seventh year at MND and this was MND’s 23rd trip.

Saint Gabriel students take up knitting St. Gabriel Consolidated School fourth-grade teacher Rosalie Helmick began teaching some girls to knit last May, forming the Saint Gabriel Knitting Club. The young women decided to continue to knit throughout the summer and use their

new skills to help others. As a result, they have been knitting hats for newborn and premature babies at local hospitals. They have turned out some very sweet little hats that will keep the newest babies warm and

WYOMING — The usually fes-

tive month of December was even more so for the Brian Pitman family as the Wyoming High School wrestling coach celebrated his 100th career dual win. It came against Summit Country Day Dec. 12. Making it even more noteworthy was Noah Pitman scoring the deciding points with the pin. Noah, is Brian’s freshman son. “I didn’t even realize it,” Pitman said. “I went through the scores a couple days later and went, ‘Wait! My son was the clincher!’ We needed to score 36 points and he was the 36th point.” He had fantasized months before of having his son seal the victory. Coaching his son is a new endeavor. The elder Pitman often has his assistants do most of the talking to the young Cowboy. “I have to get rid of Dad for a moment and coach him like I would any other kid,” Pitman said. “My stomach turns queasy and I get real nervous. It’s a much more different feeling.” Noah Pitman is wrestling at 126 pounds, down from 138. He’s on a team loaded with with youth. “We have a lot of freshmen and sophomores starting,” Pitman said. “They have to learn how to practice, how to get after it and how to prepare. We’re learning as we go. When February hits, our expectations are

going to be high.” Sophomores Luke Kremzar and Justin Shields have also experienced some early success. Shields won at 152 pounds in the Norwood Invitational, Pitman won 126 and Kremzar was fourth at 170. “He was heavier toward the beginning of the year and he finally got down to 170,” Pitman said of Kremzar. “Shields was wrestling up at 160 for a while.” Junior Asa Palmer was wrestling up at 145 pounds but Pitman plans on dropping him to 138 for more competitive results. His senior brother, Ike, has been solid at 220 pounds. Wyoming’s heavyweights are all freshman, led mainly by

Josh Bell at 285 pounds. “He had never wrestled before,” Pitman said. “He came out a week and a half after we started practice. He’s not knowledgeable yet, but he’ll get there eventually.” In the lower weights, freshman Zach Van Fossen has had some success in the 120-pound class. “He’s come a long way,” Pitman said. “He reminds me of the progress Luke Kremzar made last year. He’s got a lot of potential.” The Cowboys host Blanchester, Wilmington and Bethel-Tate on Jan. 15. From there, they beSee WRESTLE, Page A5

SHARONVILLE — The hits just keep on coming. Princeton High School senior Kelsey Mitchell – along with her sister, Chelsea signed a letter of intent to play college basketball at Ohio State University in November. Mitchell broke Tammy Svoboda’s school career scoring record of 1,479 points Jan. 4, a mark that stood since1987. She scored a team-high 17 to help the Vikings to a 59-50 road win against Lakota West. Princeton improved to 9-1 with a 48-37 win over Colerain Jan. 8 as Mitchell scored 22, leaving her at 1,504 points and counting. “She missed 15 games with injuries last year,” Vikings head coach Jill Phillips said. “Think about that. She would have broken the record last year and had all this time to add to it. We’re still not even halfway through her senior year. She’s unbelievable.” The same day as the Colerain win, Mitchell earned a nomination for the McDonald’s All American game, all of which fazed the 5-foot-7 guard about as much as a passive 2-3 zone defense. “I didn’t even know about the record until they stopped the game,” Mitchell said. “It’s nice, but it wasn’t a goal or anything. I still have more to come.” Phillips said her personality has made this a whole lot easier “She’s very humble. She doesn’t like all the attention. She’d rather share it,” she said. Mitchell agreed. “I hate it,” she said of the hoopla surrounding her hoops. “People look at you a certain way, like you’ve got something special over them because you talk to the media. I don’t like that. I’m just playing.” At an extremely high level. Phillips said there’s no good way to defend Mitchell. “If you put your best player on her, you risk getting her in foul trouble,” she said. “If you double- and triple-team her, she finds the open player. “Teams have tried a boxand-one or a man-to-man with a shadow to double her. I think you really have to rely on her having a bad night – and she does have those sometimes; she’s human – to slow her down.

Princeton High School guard Kelsey Mitchell set the career scoring record for the Vikings Jan. 4. Through Jan. 8 she stood at 1,504 points and counting.FILE PHOTO

“She’s so balanced. She can get to the basket on a drive or she can shoot the three. She’s so good away from the ball that she’s always moving, always finding a way to get open, making a defense really work on her. But because she’s so good away from the ball, we’ve never had to adjust really what we do in our offense.” Mitchell began playing basketball at age 4 after watching brothers Kevin and Cameron in their youth league games. By age 7 she could beat the boys – who now play Indiana University Southeast - in a game of H-O-R-S-E. “I’m a competitive person,” she said. “It feels good to go up against good players that make you better. I play the game fast. Ever since seventh grade I’ve been doubleteamed, triple-teamed, and that’s fine. That gets my teammates the ball. “I’m not worried about numbers or rankings. We’re going to come out and play every day like it’s our last. We getting ourselves ready for the tournament and we want to make a good run.” In many ways Mitchell already has made a good run, according to Phillips. “She’s a once-in-a-lifetime player because of her talent,” the coach said. “But she’s a once-in-a-lifetime person, too.”

Deregulation as an economic stimulus Howard Ain’s assessment of customer’s confusion about the deregulated marketplace of traditional utility service is accurate. However, a strategy that Mr. Ain did not address but truly does benefit residents and small businesses is for communities to adopt a governmental aggregation program. While an aggregation strategy may not eliminate all the harassment that takes place, residents are assured that the community has negotiated the price as well as the terms and conditions of service with a single alternative supplier. Local communities including the villages of Addyston and Cleves, the City of Cheviot and Green Township have

implemented aggregation programs for the benefit of their residents. The elected officials should be Donald commended Marshall COMMUNITY PRESS for taking the initiative to GUEST COLUMNIST implement aggregation for the benefit of residents and small businesses. While many believe government should not be involved in such services, unfortunately state law is written in such a manner that local government must be involved so that the benefits of aggregation inure to residents.

“I think it’s a typical example of bait and switch. You tell the voters one thing to get elected and then turn around and do the exact opposite. The new mayor should be ashamed of himself for ignoring the wishes of the voters who want this project stopped.” C.H.

“Stupid! Just like the stadiums were. “After all they are politicians who are only in it for themselves. They cannot pay the retired firemen and policemen so let’s go into debt a little more. I have been to cities with streetcars and they are a gimmick.” J.S.D.

“Restores my faith in common sense. “True this street car is but the start of a proper public transport light rail infrastructure, but a journey of a 1,000 miles begins with a single step. ‘Nuf said.” D.R.

“Cincinnati needs to get with it and continue to move forward on the streetcar construction. We need to move forward on transportation for a change, instead of constantly being stagnant (traffic jams anyone?), or moving backwards by the proverbial 10 years. “Now that downtown has been inundated by young professionals who live in and actually like our downtown, the rest of Cincinnati needs to get out of their rabbit holes and get moving. “You cannot expect Cincinnati to be a world-class city without world-class transportation, and that includes light rail from the suburbs to downtown. “The streetcar is just a first step that can send Cincinnati into a bright future instead of lagging behind.”

“No advisory panel should be adopted. A federal judge has already declared that the Obama/ NSA data mining acts are unconstitutional on Dec. 16. “The media fails to mention that President Obama campaigned against the Patriot Act in 2008 – but after his election, he did not keep his promise. Instead, President Obama injected an unlimited dose of steroids into the arms of the NSA and the Department of Homeland Security for political power. The NSA is just the beginning of Obama’s data collecting frenzy – there are also the new Obamacare medical records, new Common Core student records and the new FBI DNA database.

lower utility rates. Aggregation programs are implemented without cost to residents meaning the realized savings translates into a $4 to $5 million local economic stimulus. Mr. Ain also mentions the PUCO website when comparing rates. The PUCO ignores the sales tax component of natural gas rates. Customers should make sure they are making a valid natural gas comparison when evaluating natural gas rates by including the 6.75 percent sales tax impact on any natural gas offer. Often alternative suppliers ignore this tax when quoting prices. Sales tax does not apply to electric rates. As a final note, the PUCO has issued revised rules for

comment dealing with the manner alternative suppliers must abide by in the solicitation of customers and related matters. Eagle Energy in its comments suggested door-todoor solicitation be prohibited especially in communities that have adopted a governmental aggregation program. Eagle Energy also suggested in its comments that additional clarity be mandated when a utility and its marketing affiliate operate in the same serving area; e.g., Duke Energy and Duke Energy Retail Sales.

Polling places should be sacred

CH@TROOM Jan. 8 question

Aggregation results in lower rates since alternative suppliers assume a greater percentage of the populous will enroll resulting in greater load diversity that leads to lower rates. Aggregation programs allow all residents to benefit and receive the same price and terms of service but residents retain the choice to opt-out of the program. Eagle Energy endorses aggregation programs and would encourage more communities to adopt these programs for the benefit of residents. Eagle Energy administers the aggregation program of 11 communities and through September the residents of those communities have realized $3 million in

I enjoy voting, and I try to be educated on the issues. However, as soon as I got to the polling place I was confronted by a woman who was on the pathway to the voting place, who asked me to sign a petition for a “right to work” law in Ohio. She stated categorically, “In Ohio, workers are forced to join a union or not work in some places.” Well, that is kind of true. The subtlety lies in what she did not tell people. If a company becomes unionized, it is because there was a democratic vote to see if the workers wanted the union. If they vote “yes,” then indeed, you must join the union to work there. This is only logical. If not, only the workers in the union bear the cost of the union, but all workers benefit from pay and benefit improvements made by the union on their behalf. It would not be fair, no matter what your beliefs are about unions, to have some workers pay to be members of the union, but all workers benefit, whether they are members or not. In addition,

the fact that not all workers are members does one thing only: weakens the ability to collectively bargain. And that, I surmise is the real reason behind that so-called “right to work” pet-

ition. Let me give a parallel example: If you have joined Costco or Sam’s Club, you pay a fee. For that fee, prices are negotiated for bulk purchases, and you reap the benefits. I for one would be upset if Sam’s Club turned around and said that they were going to let people in the door who are not members, but expected current members to continue to bear the cost so “everyone can shop here.” I daresay the lady with the petition at my voting spot would have a harder time convincing the well-heeled Indian Hill folks that she had a petition we should sign “because in Ohio shoppers are forced to join a club or not

shop in some places.” I for one am tired of this political badgering in voting places. Once inside, I had to listen to some dreadful bore spout off his beliefs about voter registration and ID laws to some of the workers, which I suspect is not allowed within 100 feet. I have nothing against free speech. However, the voting place is sacred, and it is where we are all equal, and all express our ultimate opinions, silently. I don’t want to sign a petition, be told who is the best candidate or listen to your views on anything – I want to vote, based on what I have learned and read. I decided my vote before I got there. So shut up and vote. By the way, when I said to the lady I would not sign her petition she looked at me as if I had vomited on her shoes. I wish I had argued with her, but, you see, it was a voting place and I think these discussions are not appropriate. Bruce Healey is a resident of Indian Hill.

A step toward healthier future Detecting breast cancer early – before symptoms begin – can save lives. That’s why it’s so important for women to undergo regular breast cancer screenings as part of a preventive health care regimen. The risk of breast cancer increases with age, with 60 as the average age for first breast cancer diagnosis in the United States. However, many younger women are diagnosed with breast cancer, and detection steps should begin in early adulthood. Starting in their 20s, women should learn about the benefits and limits of breast self-examinations. Performed correctly, a selfexam is a systematic, step-by-step method for detecting changes in breast tissue. By performing selfexams regularly, women can become familiar with how their breasts normally look and feel so that changes become noticeable. Women should report any changes to their physician immediately. Most experts recommend that woman in their 20s and 30s also receive a clinical breast exam at least once every three years. Performed by a medical professional, these are a good opportunity to learn how to conduct a self-exam.

Physicians generally recommend that women begin having annual mammograms at age 40. Women at higher risk Evan Lang – for example, with a COMMUNITY PRESS those GUEST COLUMNIST family history of breast cancer – should consider other screening tests as well. The American Cancer Society recommends that high-risk women have annual mammograms along with an MRI beginning at age 30. High-risk women include those who: » have the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genetic mutation; » have a parent, brother, sister or child with the BRCA1or BRCA2 genetic mutation; » have a lifetime risk of breast cancer of 20 to 25 percent, based on recognized risk-assessment tools; » had radiation therapy of the chest between the ages of 10 and 30; » have Li-Fraumeni syndrome, Cowden syndrome or BannayanRiley-Ruvalcaba syndrome, or

who have a parent, brother, sister or child with one of these conditions.

When cancer is detected

A positive diagnosis for cancer presents women and their doctors with a number of choices for next steps. These can include: surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, bone-directed therapy and targeted therapy. An additional option is a clinical trial. Clinical research concerning breast cancer has resulted in new treatments and improved overall survival, and are carefully designed tests of medicines and treatment options. These studies offer patients the opportunity to receive new medicines or treatments that are not available to the general public. There are numerous clinical trials available in the Tristate area. Visit www.ohcare.com to view some available opportunities. The good news is that 80 percent of cancer survivors will enjoy the same life span as those who have never had breast cancer. The key is to catch it early and stop it in its tracks. Evan Z. Lang is a medical oncologist.

Wyoming student inventions make life a little easier By Kelly McBride kmcbride@communitypress.com

Tired of folding laundry? Sick of cleaning the floor? Ever wish you didn’t have to carry a back pack filled with heavy books? Want to spend the day away from home, but need to feed the family pet? These are some of the problems students at Wyoming primary schools have solved. Pupils in the gifted education classes at Elm, Hilltop and Vermont schools became inventors, following the steps from brainstorming to survey, drawings to prototype. Then they presented their prototypes at the Invention Convention at each school the week of Dec. 9-12, explaining the problem that was solved, demonstrating how the invention worked, and

putting a price tag on the new product. Emma Teras, a third-grader at Vermont School, has solved the problem of the dirty floor. She created a sandal that attaches a cleaning cloth to the bottom. Walk around the room and leave a clean floor behind. “If you need to clean the floor and don’t have time, the shoe protector can help you,” she said in her sales pitch, demonstrating how the pad fits to the sandal. Elm fourth grader Zachary Goode found a way to take the chore out of folding laundry. With his remote-controlled Goode Laundry Folder, just place the clothing on the device and the robotic arm does all the work. Collin McPhail, a fourth-grader at Hilltop School, adapted a scooter to hold

a back pack. The pack included an organizer, to keep everything its proper place. Lilly Johnson’s sister has a guinea pig. “She’s always rushing so she doesn’t like feeding him because it takes up her time,” Lilly, a third-grader at Vermont School, said. The Pet Feeder can be programmed to adjust how much food a pet gets, what day it will be dispensed, and at what time of day. It dispenses food, and peace of mind. Gifted coordinator and intervention specialist Diann Blizniak said the project was designed to teach problem solving as a hands-on process. “The students surveyed friends and family to find a realistic problem to solve and then they developed a design to solve that problem,” Blizniak said. “Seeking input from others during the design

process and during the building of their prototypes helped the students to learn that collaboration often results in a better product and that making modifications is an integral part of problem solving.” Students used the SCAMPER method of substitute, combine, adapt, modify, purpose, eliminate, reverse and rearrange, to make changes and come up with a new solution. “Communication skills were demonstrated when the students presented their inventions to friends and family at the in-school Invention Convention,” Blizniak said. What lessons did they learn? Patience, endurance, and an invention requires challenging thought and continuous improvement.

Rita’s feel-better 15-minute chicken tortellini soup The broth is easily digestible and the garlic is an antibiotic. Good for someone whose appetite is compromised. The chicken and tortellini provide protein and some carbs, and the fresh greens contain antioxidants. 1 quart or so of low-sodium chicken broth 1 garlic clove, smashed Cooked chicken – a generous cup or so 1 bag frozen cheese tortellini Fresh greens – spinach, chard, whatever Parmesan or Romano cheese

Put broth and garlic clove into pot. Bring to boil. Add chicken and tortellini to boiling broth. When tortellini floats to top, it’s done. Remove garlic. Stir in handfuls of fresh greens. Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with cheese.

1 cup sunflower seeds 1 envelope unflavored gelatin 3 ⁄4 cup all-purpose flour 3 tablespoons corn syrup 1 ⁄2 cup hot water Cooking spray Heavy ribbon or string

Combine birdseed, gelatin, flour, corn syrup and water. Spray Bundt cake pan (or other bake ware) with cooking spray. Press seed mixture very firmly into pan. Place pan in warm, dry place and let sit overnight or until dry. Depending upon how warm it is, this could take a few days. Once the birdseed mixture is hardened, turn pan over to release ring. Tie ribbon around it and hang where birds can find it.

Cookie cutters: Fun for the kids. Spray insides well and pack the mixture in. Poke a hole in center if you’re going to hang them up. After a day, you will be able to gently push mixture out in one piece; it will still be soft but you can lay it on rack to finish drying.

Brrrr! Today is definitely a soup day. The temperature in my herb garden read 11 below zero. I’m glad we’re not entertaining this week since I have my Amish wooden clothes rack lined with clothes drying by the wood stove and that takes up a good amount of room. Not exactly the ambience for having people over, but all is still good. As the clothes Rita dry, they Heikenfeld add a bit RITA’S KITCHEN of needed moisture to the dry air. Grandson Jack had his tonsils and adenoids out over the holidays, so I took over some soups and other favorite foods.

It reminded me of how something like soup can nourish and make one feel special. I wanted to share it with you because it really is easy and healthful and goes together in minutes.

Junk e-mails can contain viruses aimed to steal identity Years ago I heard most email received by consumers is junk mail of little interest to the recipients. That’s not only just as true today, but now you have to watch out for spam emails designed to steal your identity. The easiest way for thieves to get your personal information is to infect your computer with a virus. The virus allows the thieves access to your information, including passwords, which can even give them ac-

cess to your bank accounts. These spam emails have been sent at an increasing Howard rate in Ain recent HEY HOWARD! month disguised as all sorts of things. For instance, one came from the “Apple Security Center” seeking account verification information. But, a check of the sender’s email

address showed it did not come from Apple so clicking on the link it sent could have infected your computer. Marlene, in Cincinnati, wrote me she received an email allegedly from Walmart, which claimed it was canceling her delivery because of problems with her address. She was asked to click on a link and send her new address. She wrote, “I believe the email is a hoax and scam to get my personal info since I haven’t ordered anything from Walmart recently. I didn’t open the ‘form’ they asked me to complete.” Dan, of Green Township, wrote me he received an email claiming to come from Costco and also claiming there was a delivery delay because of a problem with his ad-

dress. The wording of that email is almost exactly the same as the one Marlene received claiming to be from Walmart. Again, Dan says he did not click on the link requesting his information because he realized it was a scam since he doesn’t belong to Costco. Emails are still being sent, allegedly from soldiers overseas, seeking assistance moving valuable items. The latest says, “Can I trust you?” It asks for, “Assistance for safe keeping of two military trunk boxes valuable that will be of great benefit to both of us.” Notice the grammatical mistakes, which are very common in these scam emails, because they often come from overseas where English is not the scammer’s first language.

Finally, here’s one of the most interesting spam emails I’ve seen in a long time. It says, “Notice to Appear in Court.” It gives a case number and says, “This is to advise that you are required to attend the court of Washington in January 8, 2014 for the hearing of your case.” I hope you noticed the grammatical errors. It goes on,“Please, kindly prepare and bring the documents related to this case on the date mentioned above. Attendance is compulsory. The copy of the court notice is attached to this letter, please, download and read it thoroughly.” Once again, the grammatical mistakes are numerous in those sentences as well. From the language I can tell this also came from overseas – and the email address

with it shows it did not come from any courthouse. But it might prompt someone to click on the link provided to see if they can figure out what’s going on. That would be a mistake because it most likely contains a virus to steal your personal information. Bottom line, be very careful of emails containing links – even those that appear to come from reputable companies and agencies. All too often they are just scams hoping to get you to click on their link so they can steal from you. Howard Ain’s column appears bi-weekly in the Community Press newspapers.
