Evendale continues with bike master plan By Leah Fightmaster

As Evendale Recreation Department officials wrap up phase 3 of the bike master plan, the focus has turned to prioritization and, eventually, funding. Michele Gottschlich, who has been working on the bike plan with the recreation center, said they’re finishing up phase 3, which involved establishing potential projects for the plan and prioritizing which of those options are more desired within the village. She said that residents are being asked to fill out a survey that will help them better understand what they would like to see come out of the plan first. Although they’ve only received about 70 responses so far, those working on the plan are seeing a higher demand for a trail to run along the Mill Creek. Gottschlich, who is also a founder of the Connecting Active Communities Coalition, or CACC, said the village is working with Reading and Sharonville to create a trail that would run the length of the three municipalities. Evendale has about 3.1 miles of the proposed walking and biking trail, and involves the three communities to negotiate partnerships with companies such as General Electric, Dow, Formica and Duke Energy. They are also working with CACC and the Mill Creek Watershed Council, which would usher in environmental improvements to the creek in addition to the trail. Gottschlich said that while

the most popular option, the Mill Creek trail is also the most expensive, with a possible $2.7 million price tag. The high cost is a result of a number of bridges that would likely need to be built across the creek to avoid running through industrial property, but she said some negotiation could allow for some changes that will reduce the cost. “It’s going to take a little time and some negotiation,” Gottschlich said. “Everyone has been embracing this notion (of a trail) and has been willing to talk.” Other options include a trail to the former Blue Ash airport, now Summit Park, which could run through several sites in the village, including Gorman Heritage Farm and Griffin Nature Preserve. Those projects could cost anywhere from about $100,000 to $1 million, she added. The next step is looking for grants, which Gottschlich said is where the funding for projects will come from. Several foundations and businesses are being considered, she said, and added that sources such as the Clean Ohio Trails Fund and the Recreational Trails Program are also in the works. “I truly believe this money is there, we just need to do our homework,” she said. Gottschlich added that she expects the recreation center will take the findings to council, and possibly the planning commission as well, during the first quarter of the year.

Springdale considers addition to memorial By Kelly McBride

A former resident of Springdale has made a request that would honor veterans who served in military conflicts and later died, though not in battle. Harold Redden sent a letter to Administrator Derrick Parham, asking for their names to be included on the wall of Veteran’s Memorial, at Lawnview Drive and Springfield Pike. It’s an enormous undertaking, several members of city council agreed, but an important recognition of Springdale residents, past and present, who served during times of war. Currently, the Veteran’s Memorial includes the names of military personnel who died during war. “The walls look pretty barren,” Mayor Doyle Webster said. “I think it would be great if we could find some way to incorporate Springdale residents that were participants in some of these armed conflicts. “It’s a tremendous responsi-

Mainstreet Market closes in Forest Park

By Jennie Key

There are fewer options for shopping in Forest Park with the weekend closing of the Mainstreet Market in the Forest Park Plaza. Connie Gardner, senior director of community relations for the grocery store owner, Indianapolis-based Marsh Supermarkets, said the company decided to close the store at 693 Northland Blvd. when its lease expired. The store closed Jan. 19. She said the store originally opened in November of 1962 and employed 37 people at the time of the closing. “While the decision to close a store is never easy, the management team is committed to improving operating results

and strengthening the company’s position in our marketing areas,” she said. “We are genuinely grateful for the dedication and hard work of all the associates who have worked in this store. As many employees as possible will be given the opportunity to transfer to another location or be granted a severance package.” Forest Park officials were unhappy about the closure. Councilman Wynndel Burns said he is concerned residents in that area of the community no longer have a convenient option for groceries nearby. Mayor Chuck Johnson said the city has no guarantee that the property owner can attract another grocery store. “If he finds another business

that wants the space, we won’t have a food store there.” City Manager Ray Hodges told council these are market-driven decisions and council’s first task is to do what it can to insure the space does not stay empty. He says the silver lining in this situation is that the lease has expired. “It would be worse of they were leaving, and the lease was still in place,” he said. “This way, there is an incentive to find another tenant.” The Mainstreet Market at 11865 remains open and some employees will transfer to that store. Colerain Township Economic Development Director Frank Birkenhauer said Marsh officials told him there are currently no plans to close that store.

SOS wraps up holiday giving By Kelly McBride

The Springdale organization that helps families in need reached out to dozens over the holiday season. Mayor Doyle Webster updated city council Jan. 16 on donations distributed to residents through Springdale Offering Support, or SOS. Webster reported that SOS helped 67 families, which included 194 children, through donations

of food and clothing. “We also helped Calvary (Pentecostal) Church with the delivery of 20 Thanksgiving dinners, and five for Vineyard (Community Church),” Webster said. Donations also included donations of 13 coats, along with 14 others purchased by SOS, and 15 pairs of gloves, Webster reported, as well as other donations that helped 38 local families. Among those who helped were: 14 corporate

sponsors, eight community organizations and 16 individuals. Eleven corporations donated money and food, including 61 turkeys and 44 gift cards. Webster said all of the recipients received canned goods, as well. The city will present tokens of appreciation during council’s March 6 meeting. “We want to thank all who were involved with the process,” Webster said.


Sharonville's Depot Square was blanketed with snow Friday, though the roads were clear throughout Sharonville, Glendale, Springdale, Evendale and Wyoming. Police officials reported no weather-related traffic issues, citing earlier treatment of the roads to keep them clear. The forecast called for clouds and cold temperatures, Friday and Saturday, with freezing rain possible on Sunday. KELLY MCBRIDE/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Faith moves mountains, and fills stomachs Weekdays are times of hurry to school, hurry to work, hurry to a meeting. Who has time for fresh pancakes on a weekday? A weekend morning is just the right time. But, pancakes with all the “fixins” takes a lot Evelyn of work to Perkins do it right. COMMUNITY And it’s PRESS COLUMNIST messy. You have to clean up syrup, eggs, skillets, mixing bowls, plates, glasses, silverware ... First Presbyterian Church Glendale’s sixth annual pancake breakfast Saturday, Jan. 20, solved the problem. You’ll never find a better way to start your day. Dave Conyers wrote me: “We raise money for Valley Interfaith; at the same time it is a nice fellowship event for the congregation and other guests.” Fellowship poured out of the doors as soon as you opened them. No wonder – the food was delicious! Of course there were pancakes, so light they almost floated away. Fresh fruit cups, heated syrup, sausage, ham, sausage gravy over biscuits and hot applesauce moved me to request an introduction

to the cooks, but I was too late to catch them in the kitchen. My granddaughter was impressed enough to go back for seconds. Dave was up before the chickens because there was much to do before the 8 a.m. starting time. Everything was scheduled to wrap up at 11, but there was no way that was going to happen. People were still coming in at 10:50 that morning. Donna Loudon and Susan Galbraith told me they hoped the bake sale would match last year’s intake of $258. Remaining toothsome treats were sold after Sunday’s service, and surprise, surprise, the tally was $341.81 from both days! How far they’ve come – the first year’s bake sale brought in $50. Donna was deeply moved by the generosity. The first gentleman to buy something Sunday donated $29 plus all of his pocket change when she told him she needed $8 to meet their goal. Many said “keep the change” from larger bills when they had only spent a couple of dollars. Prices were more than reasonable, and you certainly got a lot for your money: banana, pumpkin and beer pizza breads; brownies; monkey bread coffee cakes; pecan pies; jars of honey from personal hives; hundreds of cookies;

pickles and gingerbread. About 19 women prepared this bonanza that looked like a retail bakery. I bought the chocolate chip cookies, and they really hit the spot. Mark Brueggeman was onstage tickling the keyboard with just the right music for the occasion. I was fortunate enough to meet Barbara Campbell, executive director of Valley Interfaith Food and Clothing. This is where the proceeds from the breakfast will go. Last year, First Presbyterian Church Glendale won Valley Interfaith's cart trophy that carries the inscription, “We did our part to fill the cart.” This event is just one of several ministries that the church holds to honor their mission to love their neighbors. Thousands of food and personal care items were collected during their summer food drive on the square to benefit Valley Interfaith. Albert Pike (1809-1891) wrote, “What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.” Surely this applies to First Presbyterian Church Glendale

Evendale discusses zoning code changes By Leah Fightmaster

After working on the zoning code and making changes for the last few years, Evendale’s village council is reviewing the changes before it’s approved. Administrative Assistant to the Mayor Jack Cameron said that many clarifying changes were made to the village’s zon-

ing code, but three major alterations were made to update it. The first change regards land use in the village, which includes changing some zoning areas and creating entirely different ones. Two new zoning districts, Industrial Flex 1 and Industrial Flex 2, address the differences between companies in an industrial zone. Companies zoned as Industrial Flex 1,

such as General Electric and Formica, are larger scale than those that are classified as Industrial Flex 2. Cameron said these differences give companies more flexibility within their zoning requirements and define what different businesses might need. He also said that the village identified being “business-friendly” as a

priority, so the committees working on the code went through and clarified wording and policies, making it easier for a company looking to move into Evendale to understand its requirements. Cameron said many of the changes eliminate what he called “Evendalespecific language,” which could be unclear to a developer or company, and changed it to reflect in-

ing that council hasn’t received a large number of complaints or a large opposition to any of the alterations being made. Village council will hear the third reading for the code’s changes at its February meeting, and is expected to approve it then.

dustry standards. “If (the code) is easier to understand, it’s inviting businesses in,” he said. Cameron added that many companies have been working with the village throughout the process, reducing the number of potential problems or complaints being made about the changes. Vice Mayor Stiney Vonderhaar agreed, say-

with the Cowboys By Scott Springer

WYOMING — Dave Elliott’s Wyoming High School boys swim team appears in line for another Cincinnati Hills League championship. The trophy has rested at the home of the Cowboys since the winter of 2007 and one more would make for a “lucky seven” straight. The Cowboys are led in scoring by junior Jonathan Rutter, who tops the CHL in five categories (100,200 and 500 freestyle, 200 individual medley and 100 breaststroke). Not surprisingly, he cleaned up at the recent Southwest Ohio Classic meet. “He won two events at the Classic (100 and 200 breaststroke) and was second in his other two events,” Elliott said. “He did about as well as he could do. He’s a stud and continues to impress.” Though several important meets are on the way for those who wear the horseshoe caps, all eyes are on Canton. “He’ll (Rutter) will be at state and we’re hoping to get a couple relays up there,” Elliott said. “He’s got a shot to win if he continues to progress like he has been. He’s an elite swimmer.” Jonathan is also joined by his

younger sibling, Christopher, on this year’s squad. The freshman is progressing at breaststroke and is a sprint freestyle swimmer. Elliott figures he’ll also make state on a relay, provided he heeds to some brotherly advice. “He just kind of leads by example,” Elliott said of the elder Rutter. “It’s nice to know he’s coming back next year.” In all, Elliott projects seven Cowboys to state. Expected to join the Rutters are senior Brennan Burt, junior Matthew Lethander, and sophomores Stephen Barrett, Max Chou and Ian Nyberg. They primarily excel in freestyle, though Chou leads the CHL in butterfly and is second in the backstroke. Burt and Lethander are postseason veterans. “Lethander’s coming off an injury,” Elliott said. “He’s definitely got a chance on a relay.” Wyoming’s girls squad is rebuilding after losing a number of seniors. Since 2000, the Cowboys have won six league titles, the last being in 2011. “We’re down a bit,” Elliott said. “We can compete on the district level. We’ve got a chance for Caroline Duke to make state. She made it up there last year on a relay.” Duke is a junior among the

top ten in the league in the 100 and 200 freestyle. She’s close to that position in the 50 freestyle. Juniors Daria Oberholzer and Camille Wilson are also having productive seasons, in addition to freshmen Sara Washienko and Allie Golden. “We have some freshmen that are pitching in,” Elliott said. “We’re getting better. We’re just not quite to the state level. It would be nice to be top six or something at districts.” The CHL meet is Feb. 2, a week later than it used to be. “We’re not really excited they’ve done that, to be honest,” Elliott said. “We like having a week off before sectionals. It makes for a busy month.” He’d be happy to see his girls finish third, with the guys being the front-runner. Wyoming is also at the Cooper Invitational at Sycamore High School Feb. 4.

State-ranked Roger Bacon continues to roll

By Nick Dudukovich and Scott Springer

By Nick Dudukovich

ST. BERNARD — Roger Bacon coach Brian Neal knew his basketball team would be good. After all, the Spartans returned several key players from a roster that won the GCL title a year ago. But this year’s group has taken a huge leap forward. Through 16 games, the Spartans are 15-1 and ranked No. 5 in the Division III Associated Press state poll. “It is pretty remarkable,” Neal said. While the record and recognition in the polls are great, Neal’s well aware his team will be judged by how it plays in the postseason. “How you do in the tournament in ultimately what everybody is going to remember,” he said. The Spartans are coming off an 81-64 victory over GCL rival Alter Jan. 22. At the time of the game, Alter was ranked No. 4 in the AP Division II poll. The Spartans have benefited offensively from the surging Carlas Jackson. The 6-foot-4 junior guard scored 20 in the Alter win and leads the GCL Central with 17.0 points per game. He’s scored more than 15 points in seven of his last 10 games. He’s also established himself as the team’s top distributor by averaging 3.1 assists. “When you’ve got a guy who’s the leading scorer and leading in assists, that’s pretty darn impressive and that certainly makes our offense pretty potent,” Neal said. Senior Erik Edwards also continues to be a top contributor with 9.8 points and 5.8 rebounds, while being active on the defense end. “He’s incredibly versatile and during many games, he’s guarding the other team’s best player. He’s athletic enough and he’s long enough to really cause some trouble for that player.” With the Central’s second leading scorer, Austin Frentsos (14.6 ppg) also

figuring into the mix, along with 6foot-7 center Fred Moore, the Spartans feature a talented, balanced starting lineup. The team could be even more dangerous heading down the stretch, thanks to a bench that allows the Spartans to go 10 players deep. A good example of that depth can be found in the hot shooting hand of junior guard Cody Niesen. In the Alter game, Niesen was 5-of-5 from 3-point territory while scoring a game-high 21 points. He’s shooting 50 percent from downtown, which is the best mark in the entire GCL. As Neal knows, having players who can contribute off the bench can make a world of difference when the tournament starts. “It’s nice to know I can look down the

bench and put any of those guys in,” Neal said. “Certainly, we think depth is one our best assets and we’re going to continue to use it.” If the Spartans can stay alive during the tournament, area basketball fans could be in store for a matchup with the No.1Division III team in the state, Summit Country Day. Neal believes if the two teams played a five-game series, it would go the distance. And he knows Summit is dangerous, because the team has already climbed the mountain, having won the state title last season. “(They are) incredibly talented and have something we don’t. They got it done last year and we didn’t,” he said. “They’ve been there and they’ve done that.”

Caging with the Cougars really good teams. If you want to be elite, you’ve got to beat those teams.” MND starts four sophomores and a freshman. Junior Kristi Duncan is the second-leading scorer, but has been out recently. Leading the way and averaging a double-double has been 5-foot-9 sophomore forward Naomi Davenport. She leads the squad in points, rebounds, steals and blocks. While giving up a few inches in height at times, she makes up for it with her reach and leaping ability. Main has already received calls from UC, Xavier, Michigan State and Indiana about Davenport. “She’s got all of the tools and all of the talent,” Main said. “She just has to put it all together. She’s real explosive and her outside shot has come around.” Davenport shoots close to 50 percent from the field and has highs of 25 points and 17 rebounds. Just behind her in points and rebounds is 5-foot-9 freshman Abby Scholz. Sophomores Blair Carlin, Dani Kissel and Maddy South round out the Cougars starting five. “All of our top eight players will be returning next year,” Main said. “The next few years are going to be a lot of fun. ” MND plays Ursuline on the road Jan. 31.

READING — For the average English teacher, 11:15 p.m. is usually “lights out” to prepare for the next morning’s cluster of sleepy teens. When you double up as the basketball coach for one of the major high school girls’ programs in the area, late hours are often consumed by videotape of your next opponent. Such is the case of Kelly Main, Mount Notre Dame’s third-year coach. He has likely seen as much of McAuley, Mercy or Ursuline as many of their fans. In the Scarlet Division of the Girls Greater Cincinnati League, there are no slouches. “I think the league’s improved from last year and we’re certainly better than we were last year,” Main said. The Cougars are just below Ursuline in the league and are shooting for a winning record. Last year’s 6-16 mark is in the rear-view mirror. This year’s sixth win came on Jan. 3. “Our out-of-conference schedule is every year one of the top 15 schedules in the state,” Main said. “I don’t think people realize that. They just look at our record. If you look at who we’ve played, we’ve lost to some

New committee will look over East Asia In the last Congress, I had the honor of serving as chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East and South Asia. The so-called Arab Spring began the month I took over as chairman (just a coincidence I assure you!). It was an incredible experience during a tumultuous period in this always volatile region Steve Chabot COMMUNITY PRESS of the world. I had the opporGUEST COLUMNIST tunity to visit with our brave troops in Iraq, meet with Israeli and Palestinian leaders in Jerusalem and the West Bank, and witness firsthand the results of revolutions in Egypt, Yemen and Libya. In retrospect, perhaps my saddest experience was spending the better part of two days in Tripoli, Libya, with our courageous ambassador, Chris Stevens, who would be murdered by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya, one month later. In Washington, my committee held numerous substantive hearings on regional developments in the Middle East, and heard testimony from key State Department officials, scholars, and think tank professionals. Last week, the Foreign Affairs Committee met for the first time in this new Congress, and I was formally appointed chairman of another panel – the Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific. It’s an assignment that I believe will prove to be equally interesting and challenging. It’s interesting to note that President Obama announced awhile back, with considerable fanfare, his administration’s intention to pivot U.S. attention and resources from the Middle East to East Asia and the Pacific. His reasoning is that as U.S. commitments in Iraq and Afghanistan wind down, thwarting the expansionist tendencies of our real strategic world rival, China, must be stepped up. My committee will have jurisdiction over U.S. policy in an area that spans almost half the Earth’s surface, and contains more than half the world’s population. It stretches as far north as Mongolia, and south to New Zealand, from Pakistan in the west to the Pacific island nations in the east. The AsiaPacific region includes coun-

tries such as India, the world’s largest democracy; Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim nation; and China, the world’s most populous country. And the Asian-Pacific economy accounts for more than 50 percent of world trade. Some of the critical issues I expect to deal with are the following. Challenging political transitions in China, Japan, and South Korea. North Korea continues to belligerently push forward on its nuclear program. China continues to act aggressively toward its neighbors, and against American influence. India dominates South Asia and this democracy should be a natural ally of the United States. However, considerable work remains to improve this relationship. And then there’s Pakistan. Even though we have provided nearly $25 billion in aid over the last 10 years, Pakistan remains an unreliable ally in suppressing Islamic extremism. This relationship must improve as Pakistan will be critical in the Afghan reconciliation process. An ancient Chinese proverb says “May you live in interesting times.” That is likely to be the case in the Asia-Pacific region into the foreseeable future.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question What are your expectations for President Obama’s second term?

“In a time of such a stridently divided republic, I find the question to be rife with potential controversy. My personal belief is that the next four years of this presidency will be a more emboldened repeat the president’s previous term, with one notable exception: Obama will no longer need to masquerade as a Centrist trying to unite both sides in partisan equality. He is now a free “lame duck” president who will work stridently, with the help of his party and the press, to undermine the will of over half the country who sees his policies as both contrary and destructive to our American way of life. “He dithers with projects (between ‘vacations') that have no universal value to this country. While healthcare needs reform, his answer is solving nothing while creating a larger financial burden for us all. “Why, after four years of his governance do we still not have a national budget in place? Why has the free press become the mouthpiece for this administration? “I see the destruction of the values and principles of this country occurring while a nonvigilant populace grapples with the challenges of their daily lives while paying no heed to the damages being wrought.” KMK

“Let me start with the little sound bite captured when Obama was talking to the Russian, Medvedev, back in early 2012, and he told him to tell Putin that he would have more 'flexibility' after his election. What does that tell you? “You would have a hard time finding an Obama opponent who wasn't aware of his agenda,

NEXT QUESTION Do you agree or disagree with Duke Energy’s request for a 24-percent increase in electric rates and an 18-percent increase in gas rates when some of the money is expected to be used to move utilities for the streetcar project in Cincinnati?

which is to fundamentally transform our country from the free democracy it has been to a socialist paradise of which he dreams. He's doing it bit by bit by bit, and I only hope the U.S. can survive the next four years. “I expect more taxes for everyone (except for that bottom part of our population who never pay any taxes), I expect more ruin of our health care system, loss of practicing physicians, decline in quality of medical treatment, etc. I expect continuing high unemployment and an increasing national debt. “One of the things that amazes me is how Obama talks critically of the 'rich,’ saying that they shouldn't live the good life while others go without. “Uh, excuse me, Mr. President, but what do you call it when you live in the lap of luxury, rent free, for eight years, with all the servants you want, a fancy airplane and crew to take you on your vacations to Hawaii and elsewhere, collecting your $400,000 annual salary (of which you can probably save 100 percent since everything you and your family need is provided free of charge). I know what I call it: 'hypocrisy.’” Bill B.

“I think his first term was a wash. Things are the same to-

day for my family as they were four years ago and that isn't good. On the international scene America's image has taken several big hits despite Obama's 'apology tour' early in his administration. “I had hoped Obama's 'Hope and Change' would produce more over those four years; now I hope any future changes will be good, but I'm not optimistic.” R.V.

“Obama is a skilled communicator. If he means what he says about climate change, perhaps we can start talking about how much money can be saved with sensible energy efficiency programs and speeding the entry of the low cost renewables into the market. Wind is already competitive in Ohio, and while solar photovoltaics are not quite there, they have dropped15 percent or more in cost each year for the last two decades, and are going to be competitive here in Ohio in a few more years. Ohio electric utilities are already saving hundreds of millions of dollars each year with efficiency programs. “We don't need a mandate, if we just examine the barriers to the lowest cost energy options, remove them, and stop subsidizing mature dirty technologies more than we subsidize clean and sustainable technologies which are on the verge of outgrowing their subsidies. “The climate conversation should be about no-losers and creating economic growth, not a contest between the flatearthers and academics who have no idea how much energy costs.” N.F.

“More of the same old 'I can do anything and no one can stop me.’” J.K.

More than 100 friends and supporters of Cancer Support Community (CSC, formerly The Wellness Community) enjoyed a fun opportunity to sip, shop, and show their support for a good cause at Saks Fifth Avenue recently during a stylish instore preview party celebrating the launch of Saks’ 14th annual Key to the Cure charitable shopping initiative to fight women’s cancers. Key to the Cure is a national shopping event sponsored by Saks Fifth Avenue and the Entertainment Industry Foundation's Women's Cancer Research Fund (EIF) benefiting local cancer-related programs and non-profits across the country. Since its inception in 1999, the event has raised $31 million nationwide. Two percent of local sales during the event are directed to Cancer Support Community to help fund the non-profit organization’s free programs of support, education and hope for people with cancer and their loved ones offered locally in Blue Ash, Ft.

2005, CSC has received $73,867 to help fund local cancer support programs through the success of the annual Key to the Cure events and the generosity of Saks Fifth Avenue and EIF. CSC trustee emerita and event chair April Davidow worked with Saks Fifth Avenue General Manager Kevin Shibley and Marketing Director Lindsey Huttenbauer to plan the Key to the Cure party. One of the highlights for many shoppers was the 2012 limited edition T-shirt designed specifically for Key to the Cure by Carolina Herrera. Following the party, many attendees stayed downtown for dinner, taking advantage of a special dining discount offered by Palomino in support of the event. “The ongoing support of Saks Fifth Avenue and EIF means so much to us at Cancer Support Community,” said CSC Executive Director Rick Bryan. “It is always a delight to shop in such a beautiful store and see our friends at Saks. Finishing the evening with a wonderful meal at Palomino made it a perfect night downtown.”

‘Cooking Provost’ barbecue sauce I met Larry Johnson, aka the Cooking Provost, through my son Jason. Jason and Larry work at University of Cincinnati. Jason teaches electrical engineering and does research; Rita Larry is Heikenfeld provost, RITA’S KITCHEN second in command behind the president. “Larry is one fantastic cook,” Jason told me. When I chatted with Larry, I found out just how important education, food, family and friends are to him. Larry grew up on the south side of Chicago and came from humble beginnings. His generation, like mine, was first to graduate college. Larry grew up cooking for his brothers while his parents worked. “Dad trained all four of us boys to be entrepreneurs who make a difference,” he said. Larry worked in restaurants starting at age 12. His educational journey brought him to Cincinnati, and he’s still making a difference through his work and, interestingly enough, his cooking, both at home for his wife and kids, and at UC. Larry cooks from scratch and preserves jars and jars of food. He’s legendary for bring-

ing staff and students together through quarterly foodie events. Last fall he made 400 pounds of potato salad and slaw for a barbecue event. This is his way of team building. By bringing students and staff together to share his food, camaraderie abounds everyone starts out on a trustful, friendly footing. Larry is a spontaneous and generous cook, and shares his Findlay Market award-winning barbecue sauce today.

Wouldn’t this be delish brushed over a big slab of ribs for the Super Bowl!

Bubba/Larry Johnson’s barbecue sauce 30 oz. ketchup 60 oz. tomato sauce 1 tablespoon chili powder seasoning 1 ⁄2 cup Frank’s RedHot cayenne pepper sauce 1 ⁄2 cup raspberry or apple cider vinegar 2 teaspoons cumin

Larry’s words of wisdom: “When I make something I try to understand the ‘theory’ of the dish so I don’t follow recipes closely. Rather, I understand what makes the essence of the dish I am trying to create and I adjust components to accommodate what I am trying to create to make something unique. In this recipe I’m trying to make barbecue sauce that is tangy, sweet, with a little bite and unique flavors. The ketchup and vinegar provides tang. The dark brown sugar provides sweetness, and using dark brown sugar provides a richness you won’t get from other sweeteners. The heat and unique flavors come from hot sauce and spices. Finally, garlic adds a component not usually found in barbecue sauces. Adjust proportions to meet your tastes. Once you have

mixed all ingredients together and let simmer on the stove under slow heat for two to three hours, the sauce gets thicker and flavors all meld into a rich sauce. As it simmers, stir periodically or sugar in sauce will burn, but if it burns a little all is not lost, you’ll just have a nice, smoky flavor.”

Roasted shrimp cocktail shooters with firecracker sauce Roasting keeps every bit of flavor right in the shrimp. A Super Bowl fave at our house. 1 pound jumbo shrimp (16-20 count), shells peeled, deveined, tails left on 1 generous tablespoon minced garlic Olive oil Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste Palmful of fresh minced parsley

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Toss shrimp with garlic and enough olive oil to coat. Spread on sprayed baking sheet.

Roast three minutes and turn. Continue to roast just until shrimp are opaque and firm, another couple of minutes. Don’t overcook as residual heat will continue to cook them. Season and sprinkle with parsley. Chill at least two hours before serving.

Firecracker sauce

All I can say is this is addictive. Whisk together:

1 cup mayonnaise 1 ⁄4 cup Mae Ploy sweet chili sauce Up to 1 tablespoon Sriracha or other hot sauce (optional) Lemon juice to taste: start with a tablespoon and go from there

Lemon Law also applies to leased vehicles Do you know what rights you have if the new vehicle you lease suddenly starts having major problems? An area man took his vehicle back to the dealership several times – for more than a year – but complains the problem never went away. George Spinner of Pleasant Ridge said he leased his new vehicle at the end of 2011. Although he loved the car’s styling and interior he soon had problems with stalling. “The car started dying at stop lights or if you stopped in traffic. It also would hesitate and lose power. Sometimes it wouldn’t go above 3,000 RPMs or 25 miles an hour,” Spinner said. Spinner took the car to his dealership several times and, although parts were replaced, the dealer could not reproduce the problems. “The car produced no computer codes. Occasionally it would do all those things, but they were inconsistent. You could drive for a week and it’ll be fine and then, all of a sudden, it would do it three or four times a day,” Spinner said. Over a period of several months the dealership replaced several fuel sensors and fuel pumps, but the problem didn’t go away. Then, the last time Spinner says it happened, it was scary. “The car starts jerking back and forth. I got off the highway on Route 4 and the car stalled at the light. I almost got in an accident because of it because cars behind me were coming and I just had a chance to pull over,” he said. Spinner said he has a stack of service records to prove the vehicle just is not safe. In fact, he says, he’s afraid to drive it. While the average yearly miles put on a vehicle is about 12,000 miles, Spinner has only put a


little more than 4,700 miles on his car. What about the new car Lemon Law, which declares a vehicle to be lemon if it’s in the shop more Howard than three times Ain for the same probHEY HOWARD! lem within one year or 18,000 miles? It applies to leases as well as purchases and Spinner did file a claim with the manufacturer. He argued his problems certainly affect the safety, value or use of the vehicle, as required by the statute. But, he says, the manufacturer denied the claim because it believed all the repairs had fixed the vehicle. After that latest incident in which he almost got into an accident, Spinner brought the car back to the dealership again. He also began filing with the Better Business Bureau’s Auto Line Program. “At this point, the way I see it I really don’t want this car back because it’s unsafe. It clearly, to me, qualifies for a Lemon Law,” he said. Fortunately that last incident prompted the manufacturer to call him and say it will take back the vehicle under the Lemon Law. Spinner says he still loves that model car, but just wants to get another one. Remember, if you have a new vehicle and feel it qualifies as a lemon under the law, you can file a claim with the Better Business Bureau’s Auto Line Program. It can act as a third-party mediator if you have a problem with the manufacturer.

HOME video uses humor in message for families Housing Opportunities Made Equal is beginning a new media campaign spotlighting the housing rights of families with children. As part of the campaign, HOME is debuting a short, fun video featuring an out-of-touch landlord who uses multiple excuses to avoid renting to families. “While our topic is serious, we wanted to use a bit of humor to help get our message across,” said Elizabeth Brown, HOME executive director. “As a fair housing agency, our mission is to educate property owners and managers about their obligations under the federal Fair Housing Act and to advocate on behalf of those who feel their rights have been violated.” The video begins with the

landlord placing signs on the lawn stating that children are not permitted to live in the building. As the video progresses, famBrown ilies ask about the apartment only to be told various reasons why they cannot see it. “The signage is a flagrant violation of the law, but unfortunately many small landlords don’t know the law,” Brown said. “While other forms of illegal discrimination may be subtle, HOME continues to find many landlords openly saying they don’t accept families with children because they are ignorant of the law, even though protections for


families have been in place since the Reagan administration. Signs saying ‘no children’ are equivalent to those saying ‘no blacks’ or ‘no Jews.’ Our hope is that rental property owners in the Cincinnati area will learn from the video in a humorous way before they find out in a serious way by receiving a formal fair housing complaint.” In 2012 HOME filed six such complaints, and any family who believes they have been denied housing because of their children should call the agency. The video can be viewed now on the HOME website Billboards promoting it are up until early February along four well-traveled roadways including Montgomery Road and the Norwood Lateral.

American Cancer Society: Make a difference

This year, the American Cancer Society encourages you to make a difference in the fight against cancer by making a resolution to volunteer or take steps to reduce your risk of cancer. “Each of us can take steps to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays,” said Nikki Williams, program manager of mission communications for the American Cancer Society. “Whether you resolve to create a Relay For Life team, exercise, quit smoking, or volunteer, you can make a real, tangible difference.” One challenge with any New Year’s resolution is to

sustain your commitment. Many of us start off the year on the right foot, but as the year progresses our good intentions tend to fall to the wayside. Some clear steps can help shore up your commitment to fight cancer. By including a plan to volunteer or develop healthier behaviors, you can help make 2013 the year you achieve your resolution. Considering one-third of the cancer deaths in the U.S. each year can be attributed to diet and physical inactivity habits, including being overweight and obese, focusing on your health is a great way to start the New Year – no

matter how many times you’ve tried in the past. This year, to help turn those resolutions into a reality, try four quick tips to help you stay on track: set and write down specific goals, track your progress, plan for temptations, and create a support system.

Make specific goals

If you set specific goals, it’s easier to know when you’ve accomplished them – and easier to give yourself kudos for doing so. For example, if your goal is to eat healthy, try setting specific subgoals, such as eating at least two servings of fruit

a day or choosing whole grains over refined. Perhaps your goal is to get involved with the Society, start by calling the Society at 1-800-227-2345, to discuss opportunities available in your area, choose a Society event such as Relay For Life or a volunteer opportunity such as Road to Recovery then identify your commitment based on timeframes that work for your schedule. “The more specific you are in identifying your goal, the more successful you will be in developing an effective plan of action to achieve it,” said Colleen Doyle, director of nutrition and physical activity for the American Cancer Society. “You’ll be more successful if you also take long-term goals and break them down into shortterm goals. For example, instead of focusing on losing 60 pounds this year, focus on losing five pounds each month,” Doyle said. “By setting manageable goals, you’re more likely to achieve them – and to stay motivated to make even more progress.”

Track your progress

Keeping a food or exercise journal can keep you honest about how much you’re eating or exercising. It can also help you

pinpoint problem areas. For example, you may be spending too many calories on snacks or not eating enough whole grains. A journal can also help you see how close you are to meeting your goals – which often is closer than you think. Keeping an updated calendar can also help you to identify your availability to volunteer and by planning in advance you can better determine the time commitment involved with the activity you have chosen.

Plan for temptations

Once you identify problem areas, find ways to counteract them by planning in advance. Doyle suggests not trusting your willpower alone to overcome temptations: “If you’re trying to eat less sugar but that ‘hot doughnut’ sign tempts you on your way to work, find a different route.” The problems you’ve had maintaining good eating and exercise habits may not mean you have little willpower, but that you’re relying too much on it.

Create a support system

Whatever your goal, you’ll need a support network – with both people and information – to help you reach it. If you’ve set

an exercise goal, find a friend to join in the plan and help keep each other accountable. Or if you’re trying to volunteer, encourage your loved ones to do the same and identify times and opportunities in which you can volunteer together. The American Cancer Society’s Web site is full of resources to help you get healthy, including calculators to help you determine your ideal body weight, how many calories you need to eat each day, and what your target heart rate should be during exercise. You can also find articles and videos focused on staying well and sign up for our Healthy Living newsletter. Lastly, remember getting healthier is a goal you can achieve. Starting the year focused on your health means you’re on the right track to improving it. To learn how the American Cancer Society can help with your goal to stay well and adopt healthy lifestyle behaviors, visit or call us any time at 1-800227-2345. For volunteer opportunities, call 1-800-227-2345 or visit There is a Relay For Life event near you in need of walkers, teams, and volunteers. Check out your local site at

Church raises $6K for Athenaeum

Wine and beer tasting is a part of the Sips, Shepherds, and Seminarians event to benefit The Athenaeum of Ohio. THANKS TO PATTY LINDNER

tion of men and women graduates of The Athenaeum of Ohio who can be found serving God's people in communities throughout the U.S. and overseas. There are more than 50 seminarians attending Mt. St. Mary's Seminary of the West, 18 of whom attended Sips, Shepherds, and Seminarians. Deacon Max Schellman opened the festivities by introducing The Rev. Robert E. Schmitz, pastor of Good Shepherd, who spoke of the need for additional priests, deacons and lay ministers in the Catholic Church. The Rev. Benedict O'Cinnsealaigh, president and rector of The Athenaeum, addressed the group on how the Athenaeum is transforming into a more open and friendly resource for the Archdiocese, providing programs for clergy, laity, youth, families, and

those interested in deepening their faith and spiritual life. Auxiliary Bishop Joseph R. Binzer spoke on the abundant blessings available for those who are able to share the gift of faith that God had given to all of us. Music was provided by Rick Hagee, keyboard, and Pat McGill, saxophone, and Cincinnati Metropolitan Orchestra vocalist Larry Reiring. In addition to the social aspects of the evening many people demonstrated an interest in numerous silent auction and raffle items including restaurant gift cards, sports memorabilia, pamper yourself gift baskets, landscaping gift cards, bakery items, jewelry, wine baskets, and fun nights out to the Playhouse in the Park and to a Reds game – all donated by local businesses and individuals.

More than 150 attendees enjoy the festivities at the recent Sips, Shepherds and Seminarians fundraiser event for The Athenaeum of Ohio. THANKS TO PATTY LINDNER
