BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
Have you checked out the library lately? Kelly McBride email@example.com
Shelves are lined with books, with chapter after chapter of adventure, history, romance. Hamilton County’s local libraries offer much more, and have become a gathering place for the community. Activities include book clubs, story time, cupcake design, building Legos, folk dancing and even interactive African drumming, among others. Computers are available for Internet connection, and staff members help patrons navigate the Web. In Sharonville, a foreign language club meets a couple times a month, to help non-Englishspeaking residents brush up on their conversation skills. The Wyoming branch collaborates with the middle school, just down the road, to offer oneon-one story time with Woodlawn preschoolers. And there are books. Stacks and stacks, available to borrow. The library has maintained its classic bound volumes while it

evolved to the digital age, but it has also grown into a local gathering place. The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is the fifth busiest in the country, according to the 2015 Public Library Data Service statistical report. The countywide system presented its 600,000th library card in August and circulated more than 18 million items through its 41 branches last year. Among those library patrons

is Sabrina Re-Fiorentin, who moved to the Cincinnati area in 2014 from Italy. She studied English in Italy, but found that American conversation is different from reading and writing the language. She’s part of a group led by Rosemary Hermanson and Jennifer Shaw at the Sharonville branch. On a typical day, the group can include native speakers of a wide variety, from French to Japanese, Chinese to South Korean. While they don’t share native languages, all participants have a working knowledge of English. The group is designed to help them improve their conversation skills.
The program offers additional benefits, as the participants exchange recipes, discuss current events, play games, and learn about American traditions. All through conversation. The younger crowd has a chance to socialize, as well. Several times a week, parents and their babies, toddlers or preschoolers can participate in story time, movers and shakers, and a Lego program, among others. Youth librarian Andrew McClanahan said the babies and tots are always happy, making the program even more fun. It also allows parents to interact and learn from each other.
After school is a busy time at the Wyoming branch. Students flock to the small building to do homework, work on group projects, read for fun and visit with each other. That’s one reason branch manager Tom Gardner tasked teen librarian Terry Barnham with expanding the youth program. “When I came to this position, one of the big things I wanted was a teen area, a dedicated space,” Barnham said. “We get a rush of kids after school, and there is no place for them.” As the library creates a dedSee LIBRARY, Page 2A
Sharonville soccer scores decade at home Kelly McBride firstname.lastname@example.org
Youth soccer will keep its home field in Sharonville for at least the next decade. Sharonville City Council passed an ordinance to renew a lease with Berke Investments for a dollar, allowing young passers, strikers, wings, kickers and adults to use the fields near Twin Creek Preserve.

The land, owned by Berke Family Limited Partnership, is behind Cincinnati Sub-Zero on Mosteller Road. The city named the sports complex in honor of Leonard Berke, father of Steven Berke, president and CEO of Cincinnati Sub-Zero. The soccer fields solved a dilemma that the city’s youth

sports had faced for years, as spring soccer battled the baseball season for field space, and typically lost that fight. “We tried diligently for many ears to find another spot that we could have both baseball and soccer flourish on the lands that we were able to have,” Councilmember Paul Schmidt said of the challenge. “We were able to do that with the kindness of the Berke family,” Schmidt said, “and we really appreciate that.”
The Berke Soccer Complex adjoins Twin Creek Preserve in Sharonville.

attend a Woodlawn preschool. The collaboration benefits both the older and younger students, Barnham said. The teen librarian also works with students to produce announcements at the middle school, The kids write scripts, film, edit, and produce. â€œIt allows the students to be tech leaders in the school,â€? Barnham said. That broad view of the public libraryâ€™s role is echoed throughout the branches.

The word library immediately brings to mind a building full of shelves of books and smart, bookish people to help you find the one you want. Even the name contains the Latin work for book. But the library has expanded like a Narnian wardrobe in recent years. While there is still a building filled with books, the universe of services and information for which it serves as a gateway is exexponentially panding and at a dizzying speed. Greg Edwards, deputy director of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County says that’s not likely to change. Hesays books will always be at the heart of library services, but his libraries are offering a lot more these days to meet the needs of those 600,000-plus card holders. Libraries can help patrons learn to download ebooks and other electronic items and use e-readers. In addition to books, magazines and newspapers can be checked out in electronic form. Looking for a job? Your local library can help. Research for a school paper? Your local library can help. Need a computer to use for a couple hours? Try your local library. Homework too tough? Many branches have homework help. Delight your inner crafter? Entertain your toddler? Feed hungry kids over the summer? Check out your local library. Want to learn how to sew? Make a button? Print and bind a book? Main Library’s MakerSpace. A makerspace is a place where creative people can gather, create, invent and learn. Customers of the Library have access to 3D printers, audio and visual equipment, laser cutters and engravers, sewing machines, cameras and other hardware and software tools that they can use for free to create pretty much anything they can imagine. Some machines require additional materials which may be purchased for a fee. Upcoming programs are listed on the library’s website and patrons can reserve stations for up to an hour at a time to work on projects. Patrons may come to libraries for WIFI, to use printers or to escape the cold. Charge their phone. If near a school, children may spend time in the library because it’s close and it’s safe. They know the library workers at their branch. They can get help with homework. Programs at services at the libraries grow from needs in the community. Edwards said the staff at the branches get a lot of feedback, and library systems share ideas with their colleagues. “We do card holder surveys, track trends among our users and demand drives some of the services we offer,” he said. Next on the horizon, the library will offer hot-
spots, portable WIFI that can be checked out from branch libraries by patrons. “They can be checked out and used at home or when people are on vacation,” he said. As the library acquires users, its directors and administrators are constantly checking to see
what services they want and need. While Edwards said people think of books initially, libraries are places for community members to gather, to meet, to learn and do. “Outside our buildings look the same,” he said. “Inside, we still have books, but we have a lot more going on.”

Little doubt - people love their libraries We asked readers: How often do you use your local library - and which branch(es) do you use? How do you use it - online, in person - and what are your favorite and most-used library services? How has your local library changed in the last 5-10-15 years? What changes do you see for libraries in the future? Here are some responses: “I love, love, love the library. Mostly I go to the Monfort Heights branch or will give myself a treat and go to the main one downtown. I am an avid chef and the library has a wonderful collection of cookbooks. If my branch doesn’t have the one I want they will arrange to have it sent to it. The type of books I like to read has it’s own special area in the downtown library. I’ve been exposed to more music styles just by browsing the CD music area. Also downtown they have the new Maker Space area. I took old cassette tapes there and transposed them into digital (I also did that with a VHS tape). “I have fallen in love with audio books and this
past Christmas gave my grown son and my husband Kindles so they also can enjoy the books read to them while working/ cooking dinner/ driving in the car, etc... And you know what? My son hadn’t used his library card in so long he needed to get a new one. The librarians at Monfort Heights got that taken care of and helped him set up his Kindle with the library app. They go out of there way to help. “I attend lectures. I went over Christmas to see the Kenner display. I go specifically to shop at the Friends of the Library store. So ask me again how do I use my library? How do I not!” Christy Feldhaus, White Oak
“I love the Cincinnati Public Library. It is one of the best libraries in the country and a point of pride for me when I talk about Cincinnati. “My family uses the library nearly every day. My wife and I read ebooks checked out via Overdrive (the library’s ebook service). Being able to finish a book and check out a new one right away without leaving the house is a huge convenience and has increased our reading level and allowed us to try many new authors.

Julia Mace of Clifton said her sons, Calvin and Max Rush, enjoy story time with Children's Librarian Eric Davis.
“We visit the local Green Township branch at least once a week to check out books and DVDs with our children. They also enjoy playing the computer games available at our location. My 8-year-old daughter recently got her first library card. She was extremely proud and excited to start using it. I was pleased that our library had two different kinds of cards for kids. The one we chose limits checkouts but has no overdue fines. An easy choice for parents. “I’ve been very impressed with the library’s ability to keep innovating. Over the last decade, the library has moved aggressively into digital offerings (Hoopla, Freegal, Overdrive, Lynda.com, etc.) that make it easy for
library patrons to expand their mind and keep learning. The Maker space at the downtown library is an amazing place where patrons can get seriously creative. I don’t even know of another library that has such a cool feature. “Obviously I love our library. I hope it continues to be a leader for libraries well into the future.” Lewis Riley, Green Township
“I love the Cincinnati/ Hamilton County Library. We are so fortunate to have this award-winning organization at our disposal. “I am a regular at the Greenhills branch. I attend the monthly mystery book club meeting and my dog, Layla, is the therapy dog who does the Tales to Tails event once a month. “I pick-up books I have requested on-line. I utilize the favorite authors option on the website and automatically am placed on the waiting list when a new book is released. “I almost exclusively listen to rather than read books. If the audio book I want is not available locally I can search for it at other libraries throughout the state and it is sent to my local branch! “Every question or comment I have submitted via the website has been answered within a reasonable amount of time. The branch staff are wonderful. No request is ever ignored. I may not like the answer, but I always get an answer. “I have friends who have moved and they always miss the quality library system they left behind. “There is no bigger supporter of the Cincinnati/Hamilton County Library than me. “I also utilize the Lane Library in Fairfield.” Maryellen Witte, Springfield Township

“My husband and I live in Finneytown with our five kids: 7-years-old, 5, 5, 2, and a 4-month old. “During the summer we visit the Groesbeck and Wyoming branches regularly, to participate in summer reading. I’m noticing that we do not visit as often during the school year. Our schedule gets busy, and I struggle to remember to find and return books on time. The library helps this by offering to put a limit on the number of books my youngest children can borrow, and then by not charging them late fees. I quit borrowing children’s altogether movies though: they are usually scratched, or they get
scratched in our possession. “I notice interesting books at Kroger, and then go find them at the library for free! It’s fun to return from the library with a stack of books to sort through. Not only for pleasure reading, but also related to my hobbies. Last time I took my twin 5year-old boys to the library, the librarian offered to spread out on a table all the books on their favorite subject: tornadoes. My boys were in awe! “I use the library’s website a lot for one of my hobbies: family research/ genealogy. There is a whole category of links on there that offer wonderful resources for genealogy, and for Cincinnati history! “Since I’ve visited the Cincinnati libraries (close to 10 years now), I’ve noticed more computers, and everything is more user-friendly. The fines for overdue materials has been relaxed a little, and that certainly makes me more inclined to borrow. “In the future, I believe libraries will become even more tech-friendly. Perhaps they’ll lend out tablets and iPads, maybe with e-books pre-loaded on them. More libraries will include drive-thru windows, like the Groesbeck branch has. I remember seeing that a local librarian recorded herself reading stories, which I think was intended for an Internet audience. I imagine much more of that in the future: classes and story-time via the Internet.” Amy Sellers, Springfield Township
“Someone in our family uses the library once a week or so. We typically use the College Hill branch, but occasionally attend special programs at other branches. “We use the library in person to pick up books and DVDs for all members of the family. We often order books on hold from the website or app and then pick them up. We really appreciate that service, as it saves time, although we also like to browse the children’s section for our kids, especially the new book display. Cincinnati has tons and tons of books, and it is nice to not be limited to just what’s at the local branch. I personally use the electronic check-outs a lot as well, using the library to access audiobook MP3s and e-books for my smart phone and Kindle, which is really awesome. This service means I can use the library 24/7, and it’s impossible to be overdue with electronic media, so no fines! “The library has expanded a lot of their electronic options and online presence, while continuing to offer the traditional programs, computer access, reading materials, and movies to patrons. I like some of the building improvements I have seen, where tiny storefront branches such as Clifton and Reading are getting new stand-alone buildings. A friend of mine in Reading has raved about the drivethrough service at the new Reading branch, which is definitely a change from back in the day. “Some other libraries offer circulating video
games, and I would not be surprised if Cincinnati eventually did, too, especially if they find a way to offer digital-only circulation that keeps costs and storage down and prevents patrons from stealing pricey games. I foresee digital circulation of CDs as well. I think libraries need to, and will, do more to market all the ways they can be used from home to help people save money on books, shows, movies, music, as well as classes for adults and programs for kids. “We love using our local library - it is an invaluable community resource, both in person and online!” Megan Haber, Finneytown
“My daughter (2years-old) and I go to the Groesbeck branch of the library every Tuesday (story time) and Thursday (’Movers and Shakers’). She loves both programs and can't wait to go see her friends and Miss Lacey. I love it too; it gives us something to do and get out of our house a few times a week. They are a big part of our week. “I also get books for my first-grader to read for school. The library is the best place to get books for him that are at his reading level so he doesn't have to read the same books over and over. I also like to get books too. I will check out books I want to read and if they are available for my Kindle I'll do that too. “I often pick my books out online for both me and my son and then they are ready and waiting for me when I get to the library. My 2-year-old is always on the move so it's nice to be able to browse the books online; instead of trying to look at books and keep track of her at the library.” Kimberly McCoy, White Oak
“Believe it or not, I am still a book and newspaper kind of girl and still subscribe to three daily newspapers. I check books out of the Northern Hills Library every single week and cannot stand reading on a tablet. “On vacation I am the girl toting library books to the beach - they have traveled coast to coast and to St. John with me. I have to have a book in my hands when I am laying in bed at night. “The NH Library still looks and smells the same as it did when I got my very first library card in first grade and attended Pleasant Hill school. That smell conjures up vivid memories of the special days we got to go to ‘Story Time’ at the library and sit in a circle while the librarian read to us. I did the same thing for my son when he was small - he would enter the book reading contest in the summer and we would go to the craft related activities too. Of course when the tree crashed through my roof during Hurricane Ike I used the library for work, since I was without internet service for more than a week.” Julie Whitney, College Hill
“I still use my local library (Clifton) to pick up books I've put on hold. I take my kids and we pick out books and they use the computer (if I allow it!). Like most families in Clifton, they know and love the local children's librarian, Mr. Eric (Davis). Julia Mace, Clifton

SCHOOLS NOTEBOOK Mount Notre Dame High School » Mount Notre Dame traveled to students France for three weeks as part of MND’s French Exchange Program. This year, four students participated: seniors Jessi Mueller (Loveland), Henson Sullivan (Loveland), Elaine Voshefski (Morrow) and Gabrielle Woehler (Loveland) traveled to Belfort, France, to live with French host families and classes with attend French students at Sainte Marie High School. During their time in France, students immersed themselves in the French language, culture and cuisine. “My favorite part about the French exchange was being fully immersed in French culture,” Woehler said. ‘It opened my eyes to a different way of life and a different system of beliefs. I hope to continue thinking from a multicultural perception of the world.” MND students were in Belfort when the terrorist attacks took place in Paris. Students had the opportunity to visit Paris following the attacks and witness both the resilience and patriotism of the French people. The Foreign Exchange Program requires students to possess strong academic skills, French language proficiency and a willingness to embrace the gift of diversity. Students must go through a selection process that includes an evaluation of academic and attendance records, teacher input, application and interview. Some of the many benefits of the program include increased cultural understanding, expanded world view and personal growth. » Mount Notre Dame had the privilege of hosting a unique and elite workshop designed to provide students with an

opportunity to explore career options through discussions with local female leaders. The Women in Leadership Workshop, in partnership with General Electric, was at MND Jan. 14, and featured a variety of speakers with backgrounds in communications, engineering, information technology, management, marketing, medical, military and sales. In the spirit of MND’s mission to empower young women to learn, live, lead and serve, the workshop provided a platform for women in leadership positions to share their professional experiences and inspire students to achieve success. The event’s key note speaker was Melanie Healey, retired group president for Procter & Gamble North America, who has been ranked one of Forbes’ most powerful women in business five times. Healey shared her seven secrets of success and emphasized that “success is a matter of choice, not chance.” In addition to P&G, female leaders from GE, Children’s Cincinnati Hospital Medical Center, UC Health and SmartCrowdz participated in
round table discussions where students had the opportunity to ask questions and grow in knowledge. Junior Kelly Harper (Golf Manor) reflected, “I realized how lucky we are to live in a world where there are so many opportunities for women in all fields and career pathways, and that there are so many examples of successful women in leadership right here in our community.” The Women in Leadership Workshop was an event in conjunction with MND’s My Action Plan. As part of the MAP Program, students are engaged in experiences throughout their fouryear journey that will foster leadership skills and empower them in all areas of their lives. » Mount Notre Dame conducted its 20th annual Billiart Scholar Recognition Program in honor of the Class of 2020 Jan. 20. Named in honor of the foundress of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, St. Julie Billiart, the event incoming recognizes freshmen who score 90 or above or achieve a CSQ score of 125 or higher on the High School Placement Test. During the event, 152
students were recognized from 45 junior high schools. These students are eligible to join the Billiart Scholar Honors Program, which inspires students to grow academically by engaging them through real-world experiences and encouraging them to think beyond the classroom. stuAcademically, dents are challenged through advanced placement and honors classes and an accelerated standardized testing plan. Outside the classroom, students participate in unique experiential learning and service projects. Associate Head of School and Dean of Academic Development Karen Day said, “Mount Notre Dame is blessed to be able to provide a unique Honors Program for the brightest students in the Cincinnati area that develops their potential as future female leaders. As St. Julie Billiart, our foundress, said, we must ‘teach them what they need to know for life.’ In this era, MND is supporting these talented young women to be influential in their careers, in their spiritual lives and as involved,

Steak, truffles speak language of love I just loved the request Well, I not only have a from a Northern Kentucky recipe that looks like reader for a Valentine’s Day what she wants, I think recipe. “My husband keeps this one might be what talking about his mom’s Swiss his mom made. steak. All he remembers is I also wanted to share that she pounded salt and truffle recipes. What pepper into the meat with better way to say Rita flour, browned it and then “You’re special?” There baked it with tomatoes. It had Heikenfeld are two recipes: one for cheese on the top and was his adults and one for kids. RITA’S KITCHEN favorite. I would like to make Rita Nader Heikenthis as a surprise Valentine’s Day feld is an herbalist, educator, Jundinner for him. If you have a recigle Jim’s Eastgate culinary profespe that is close, I would really sional and author. Find her blog appreciate it”, she said. online at Abouteating.com.
‘I love you’ oven Swiss steak 1-1/2 pounds round steak, 3/4” thick 1/4 cup flour 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons ea. salt and pepper 1 can stewed tomatoes 1/2 cup ea. chopped celery and carrot 1/4 cup chopped onion 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce or bit more to taste 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD
Preheat oven to 325. Cut meat into 4 portions. Mix flour, salt and pepper and pound into meat. Set aside flour that is left. Brown meat in oil or shortening on all sides. Don’t cook it, just brown it. Place meat in shallow baking dish. Blend remaining flour with drippings in skillet and add rest of ingredients, except for cheese. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Pour over meat. Cover tightly and bake for 2 hours or until tender. Top with cheese and return to oven for a few minutes to melt cheese.
It’s that time of year - chocolate and Oreo truffles.
Elegant chocolate truffles 3 tablespoons light corn syrup 3/4 cup whipping cream, unwhipped 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into very small pieces 1 teaspoon vanilla
In a small saucepan combine the corn syrup and heavy cream. Bring to a simmer and add the 12 ounces of chocolate. Stir until smooth. Remove from the heat and add vanilla. Pour the mixture into a container and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour until firm. Scoop chocolate using small ice cream scoop onto pan lined with parchment paper or sprayed foil. Return to frig until very firm.
Oreo truffles 1 pound package of Oreo sandwich cookies, divided (not double stuffed) 8 oz. cream cheese, softened 1 teaspoon vanilla
Coating: 8 oz. or so high quality melted chocolate, cooled a bit but still liquid enough to dip
Tiny sprinkles/nuts, etc. (opt) Remove the truffles from the refrigerator and shape into balls by rolling between the palms of your hands. Work quickly since the heat of your hands makes the chocolate soft. Dip each truffle into the chocolate to coat and place on wire rack for excess to drip off. Tip: for a quicker and easier truffle omit the chocolate coating and drop the shaped truffles directly into cocoa powder, nuts or coconut.
Coating: 12 oz. bag semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips, melted and cooled a bit but still liquid enough to dip
Crush 9 of the cookies to fine crumbs in food processor. Set aside. Cookies also can be finely crushed in a plastic bag using a rolling pin. Crush rest of cookies. Place in bowl and add cream cheese and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Roll into 1” balls. Dip in melted chocolate and set on wire rack. Immediately sprinkle with leftover crumbs so that crumbs adhere before chocolate coating sets up. Refrigerate until firm. Store in refrigerator up to a couple of weeks.

CH@TROOM Jan. 28 question Who will be President of the United States one year from today? Why will he or she have won?
“One year from today we will be hailing the almighty and magnificent President Trump. I am not saying I agree with this choice, but yet again it will be a matter of the majority of the population voting against the greater evil rather than for the best choice. I truly long for an election where we can in good conscience vote for the right candidate with passion and belief that he or she is the best and correct choice for the highest office in our society. Trump simply has too much momentum, media presence and too many faithful followers to be stopped. He is saying the things that too many of us feel need to be said, and which the other hopefuls are too PC to state. On the campaign side he doesn't require huge donations and is therefore beholden to none of the special interests. If nothing else, this election cycle so far has been good entertainment.” M.J.F.
“I think it will be Ted Cruz. Most of America will finally wake up and realize that health care isn't a right it is a privilege, that Christianity is the national religion, diplomacy is weak and bombing is strong and good, woman should cede decisions about their bodies and reproductive health to wealthy, white evangelical males, and every citizens duty is to be armed with an open carry weapon of his or her choice. “I can relate very well to his populist story of attending common Ivy League schools, marrying a common Goldman Sach's executive and taking a job where you grind your place of employment to a standstill. “For all these democratic and patriotic reasons I see him coming out on top next year.” C.S.
“One year from today, you arrive home excited because you met with your boss today and he said due to increase in business, he was promoting you to manage the new employees. A nice raise comes with the job. The HR manager informs you your health insurance is going down in price because of increased competition. “Then you think back , a year earlier the country felt like it was rapidly suffocating, No good jobs, increased health insurance premiums and a navy suffering through a Third World country holding guns to their heads on their own ship. “Your choice, America.” J.H.D.
“Right now Democrat Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are the favorites for their parties. I think the Democratic nominee has that 47 percent of voters (Romney’s claim of those not paying taxes and/or on entitlements) in their hip pocket. Trump seems to have captured the American voters’ disappointment with current leadership. He seems to have what the frustration fueled masses are looking for i.e. a change or the next Ronald Reagan. I think that voter frustration will ‘trump’ Hillary’s very questionable track record. I hope Trump chooses wisely his VP, cabinet and advisors. He scares me, but I am naively optimistic he can right the ship. I look forward to their debates next fall as it could get ugly. Go Figure!” T.D.T.

gees into the U.S. I have a Koran and have read it twice. Americans do not have a clue about what an influx of Muslims into this country will cause in the short as well as the long run! “The book depicts the hatred for all those who have not accepted Islam. Those who are not Muslims deserve death. Any Muslim that believes what the Koran preaches is a potential threat! The following is a reply to a young man who had an article in the Cincinnati Enquirer He never received it because what I perceived as being an email address was a Facebook address. I am not on Facebook. “’I read your article in this morning’s Enquirer and the first thing that entered my mind was: Have you taken the time to read the Koran? Ask yourself why isn’t the country bringing in Christian refugees? Is it because Obama favors Muslims because he was raised as one. Multiculturalism does not work! Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, stated as much because of the influx of Muslim refugees into her country. The masses have caused assimilation problems.’ “England and France have the same problems with Muslim refugees. Many Muslims like Christians don’t read their Korans or Bibles and don’t go to a Mosque or church. Muslims that do go to a particular Mosque could be radicalized to commit jihad. Jim Hanson who is a part of counter terrorism (Center for Security Policy executive vice president) stated on O’Reilly’s hour that out of 100 mosques in the U.S. that were monitored 80 were preaching jihad. “The more Muslims that take shelter here and become citizens will add to the caliphate that is the head of the snake! There will be more mosques and minarets and the calls to prayers five times a day. Schools will be affected big time! And with a liberal supreme court Sharia law could be passed and men would be able to beat their wives and all that the book allows Muslim men to do. Women would be wearing burqas in public. Is this what you want to see in this country? “If you read the Koran you will see that it is based on the Biblical old testament. The narrative is twisted to bring about a faith that depicts Jesus as a prophet and not the son of God. Christians and Jews deserve death because they have not accepted Islam as the one true religion. No one knows who created the words of the Koran. Muhammad was illiterate and lived in and out of a cave because he probably had some mental issues. Would God send down Gabriel to give this man the words that depict death to all that don’t believe in Islam? I don’t think so! “SURA 47 - Muhammad: When ye encounter the infidels, strike off their heads till ye have made a great slaughter among them and of the rest make fast the fetters. Infidels deserve death! That includes you and me. The word infidel is mentioned 203 times in my Koran. American’s are illiterate relative to Islam and many like yourself are jumping on the bandwagon to bring them here!”

Careers, happiness and furry friends “What breaks your heart?” I was at a conference and the speaker asked this question of the audience. In my work, I am accustomed to asking people what they are interested in, excited, even passionate about. But this question stopped me cold. Let me back up. I believe that when we limit our definition of our careers to just what we are paid to do, we miss the biggest picture; the opportunity to engage in the world with our full skill set and with our complete hearts and souls. If you enjoy coaching girls basketball, that is part of who you are and even it if it is purely a volunteer endeavor, it is a part of your unique career set, or your “big picture.” Take a minute and ask yourself what your total career is. What does it include, and what would you like it to have more of? If you are an animal lover, and spend any time or resources on animalrelated causes, that is part of your career – part of who you are. I knew I wanted to do something to help dogs, but I also knew that was too broad of a desire. When a goal is too big or too vague, your chances of reaching it diminish, versus developing concrete, actionable goals. What breaks my heart?
When I really thought about that question, I had an “aha” moment. Julie Senior Bauke dogs COMMUNITY PRESS dumped at GUEST COLUMNIST shelters because they are senior dogs. That breaks my heart to pieces. Now what? I know I can’t volunteer in a shelter. My emotions would not survive and I would live as a blubbering mess. I have tremendous respect for those who do. I give money, I get the word out, I work to connect people and resources. I have as many dogs as I can in my home. But still, I knew there was more I could do. When facing the empty nest, we decided that we wanted more dogs. I knew the number was not 50, but it also wasn’t three. We built a home on 15 acres and attached a senior doggie recreation room, dogs runs and a fenced-in yard. It is a place for eight senior dogs who were given up just for being old, to live out their days in comfort and love. I knew we had done the right thing when we got our first resident: Mitzi. It’s no secret that the gray muzzle does not increase your prospects for being

selected by shelter visitors. Maybe it was my imagination, but when I whispered in her ear that she was now safe, those tired bones took a deep breath and her whole body relaxed. Our world is not lacking in things to be heartbroken over. It can paralyze us into inaction or just the feeling that we can’t do anything that matters. There is no right or wrong answer to this question. I am constantly amazed by our community’s love for animals. Animal lovers are givers – and so are animals. My Furry Valentine, a nonprofit organization that hosts an annual event to bring people and adoptable pets together, is a way that you can get involved. To date My Furry Valentine has found homes for nearly 2,000 shelter pets in the last five years. My Furry Valentine, the region’s largest annual animal adoption event, will be held on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 13 and 14, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Sharonville Convention Center, 11355 Chester Road, Cincinnati, OH 45246.

Princeton boys hoops grow, learn together Adam Baum email@example.com
SHARONVILLE - Jamal Walker, Princeton High School’s boys basketball coach, had no illusions regarding the road ahead this season. He knew it might be rocky, navigating through the Greater Miami Conference, equipped with a team lacking any real varsity experience. But, with youth comes opportunity. “I had a feeling it would go this way, cause we’re a young team,” Walker said. “Young meaning no varsity experience in the tough GMC. “Opportunities are there for anyone to get minutes and play.” The Vikings have done some nice things. They’ve beaten Oak Hills, Lakota West, St. Xavier, Hamilton and Winton Woods twice. At deadline, Princeton’s won seven games and lost nine with a roster that continues to learn. “What I like is that they’re finally understanding that it’s a team game and understanding that you have to play unselfish,” said Walker. “I don’t have a guy I can turn to and say, ‘Give him the ball.’ I want to make sure the guys trust each other.” All 15 guys on Princeton’s roster have played minutes this season, and only three are seniors. Guard Devan Cook is the mostinvolved senior, playing 23 minutes a night, leading the Vikings with 1.9 assists per game. Sophomore forward Dominic Pierce, Princeton’s only returning varsity starter, has been a quiet presence in the paint. Pierce posts 6.9 points, 7.4 boards and 2.5 blocks per game. Pierce’s rebound and block numbers each rank second in the GMC. Junior Justin Newman leads See PRINCETON, Page 2B
WYOMING - Reaching 1,000 points is a monumental achievement in the career of any high school basketball player. Doing so in less than three seasons is even more impressive, particularly when the player overcomes adversity. Such is the case of Wyoming guard Ashli O’Neal. After starting two seasons at point guard for coach Gerry Lackey, she injured her left knee in the summer before her junior season. During a prime time to get looks on the AAU circuit, she had to watch as her teammates were recruited. O’Neal was coming off a sophomore season where she led the Cincinnati Hills League in scoring at 16.6 points per game, assists with 3.6 and steals at 5.5.

Roger Bacon’s Neal passes Brewer for most wins Kevin Goheen Community Press contributor
ST. BERNARD - Peggy Brewer was superstitious when her husband Bill was coaching basketball at Roger Bacon. “I never wore anything with ‘Roger Bacon’ on it,” she said. “Whenever I did, they would lose.” Bill Brewer’s Spartans didn’t do a whole lot of losing, a trait that has continued in the 11 seasons that Brian Neal has been at the program’s helm. Tuesday night, Roger Bacon rolled past Fenwick, 69-28, in St. Bernard to run its record to 12-5 and give Neal win No. 171 at the school. It was a win that broke a tie with his mentor and made Neal the all-time winningest coach in school history. Brewer, who left Roger Bacon to coach at Princeton and turned things over to Neal, passed away in 2007 at the age of 42 of a heart attack. Peggy and 15-year-old daughter Maddy, now a sophomore at Ursuline, were front-and-center at the Fogarty Center Tuesday night. While Maddy showed no fear of a jinx by wearing a brown Roger Bacon fleece pullover, Peggy stuck to her tried-

and-true beliefs. “If anybody were to beat Bill’s record, I’m glad it was Brian,” said Peggy, moments after her and Maddy were a part of the post-game celebration honoring Neal’s accomplishment. “Brian’s been a great friend to
Bill and, still the Roger Bacon family has been a great friend to us. Nobody can ever fill the hole that we have since Bill passed away but I love coming back here. I love all of the memories in this gym and I’m so happy for Brian.”
Junior forward Justin Johnson, coming off a 42-point game in last Friday’s 81-71 double overtime win at Dayton Chaminade-Julienne, led four Spartans in double figures with 16 points. Senior guard Luke Baker made three 3-pointers as part of his 11-point performance, a point total matched by junior guard Craig McGee and freshman guard Alec Pfriem. Roger Bacon scored the first nine points of the game and led 16-5 after the first quarter. Fenwick, which had won two of its last three games, never got closer than eight points the rest of the game. The Falcons fell to 7-7 overall and 1-6 in the Greater Catholic League North. Roger Bacon is now 5-2 in the GCL Central with an important game against division leader Purcell Marian on Friday at home. Purcell Marian, ranked No. 9 in the Associated Press Division III state poll, won the first matchup, 63-61, in December. The Cavaliers are ranked No. 1 in The Enquirer’s Division III poll, while Roger Bacon is No. 2. “This is a big week for us because it’s a chance for us to win the GCL title, and what better way to start of the week than with a win that gives Coach Neal
St. Xavier’s Kuechly: Cincinnati’s Captain America Linebacker ready to tackle Super Bowl 50 with Carolina Adam Baum firstname.lastname@example.org
SPRINGFIELD TWP. Cam Newton calls him “Captain America.” But, before the nation knew Luke Kuechly, he was Cincinnati’s captain. And in many ways, the 2009 St. Xavier High School graduate remains one of this city’s proud captains with or without football pads on. When Kuechly’s feet hit the field, under the lights of Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., in Super Bowl 50, he’ll not only be representing his team and a fan base – booming thanks to a pair of postseason pick-sixes – but also his family, friends and hometown. Luke knew it as a little kid. “When they’re little this is what they dream about doing,” said Luke’s mom, Eileen Kuechly. As Carolina mangled Arizona, 49-15, in the NFC Championship game Sunday night, Eileen heard a story from one of Luke’s childhood friends, Matthew Reilly, who lives and teaches in Charlotte. said, “(Matthew) ‘When Luke and I were 10 years old we were sitting in my basement … talking about, one day we’re going to be playing in the Super Bowl,’ and that’s what he’s doing for cryin’ out loud,” said Eileen. living his Luke’s St. Xavier’s dream. dream was slightly different, and not realized until much later. The Bomber blue community, their dream was to have a representative like Luke. His uniform’s fashioned with No. 59 and a
his 171st win,” said senior guard William Greene. “He always emphasizes to us to never let up. The first three minutes of the half makes or breaks the half.” Neal was an assistant under Brewer, including during the 2002 Division II state championship season in which Roger Bacon famously beat Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary’s and LeBron James to win the title. He was also an assistant under Tom Singleton for the Roger Bacon girls’ team that went 28-0 and won the 1995 Division II state title. His record is now 171-94 and he has led Roger Bacon to seven league championships, five district titles and a regional championship two years ago. He was named the Associated Press Division III coach of the year in 2013. “When we won on Friday (at CJ), I didn’t know that I had tied him,” said Neal. “Most of the things I learned in the basketball world I learned from two guys, and Bill was probably the most influential. I would say one of the most influential other than my father, who was a teacher and coach for 42 years. Obviously, a lot of my success was just growing and watching him do what he did.”

“With the young guys, they do get down when they don’t see wins on the board, but that’s our job as coaches,” said Walker. “We tell them that we’re using basketball to teach them life skills. Even though we’re playing a game and practicing every day, we’re teaching them that mental toughness helps them in the real world.” Princeton hosts the GMC’s top team, Mason, on Feb. 5, then travel to Colerain Feb. 9 and Sycamore Feb. 12.

very telling “C” – which might as well mean Cincinnati, or character, or any other number of words capable of describing Kuechly. “It’s pretty simple, Luke is a better human being than he is a football player,” said St. Xavier coach Steve Specht. “I think if you really looked at all the players in the NFL you are going to find that the majority are tremendous people who happen to be gifted football players. we “Unfortunately don’t get to read about all of those people.” Specht said we often hear more about the negative issues than the positive. “I guess that’s what I love about Luke; it doesn’t matter if he wins a Super Bowl or is voted the defensive MVP, he will still be the same guy that wants to give his best and leave the world a better place than he found it. That’s the way he is and always will be,” Specht said. “Winning a Super
Bowl ring would be great for Luke and the community, but how he carries himself is what continues to make us proud.” Kuechly is the fourth St. X grad to make a Super Bowl roster. Greg Scruggs (class of ’08) was inactive, but on the roster for the Seahawks’ last two Super Bowl trips. Pat Ross (class of ’01) played for the Seahawks when they fell to Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XLI. Currently, Rocky Boiman (class of ’98) is the only Bomber to play in and win a Super Bowl as a member of the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XL. “Anybody who’s worn a football helmet for 22 years or 22 minutes, every kid has dreamed of playing in the Super Bowl and winning … it’s the ultimate reward,” said Boiman, who added it’s easy to see why Luke’s left such an impression on this community. “He’s the perfect embodiment of what St. Xavier’s all about,” said Boi-
man. “To who much is given, much is expected. For him to have that drive and to be as humble as he is and a man of the community. That’s what it’s all about.” Eileen also understands why Luke is so revered. “I do get it,” she said. “But then, we laugh too cause we know Luke. We see him at home and he’s still like a kid, too. He’s a thoughtful person and it comes from the people he’s been in contact with.” On Feb. 7, Luke’s parents and his brothers, John and Henry, who Eileen described as ecstatic, will watch Luke play linebacker in the Super Bowl. They love watching Luke play linebacker, but they love the man he’s become even more. “It has to be the man, because at the end this football will be done. What is he gonna be after that?” said Eileen. “If he is a good man, a man for others then I think we did a good job.”
up,” O’Neal said. This season, the Cowboys haven’t always had a full roster, but O’Neal has produced better than ever. She again leads the CHL in scoring with an average of over 23 points per game and is the prime pilferer with 5.4 steals a night. Three times she’s surpassed 30 points, with a high of 37 against Indian Hill in early December. Her injured ACL, MCL and meniscus have healed to where she again drives the lane against taller opponents with frequent success. From the perimeter, her percentages are up and she’s buried four treys five different times and had five in her big game with Indian Hill. However, her favorite move remains the “Eurostep,” which often leaves her defender watching a lay-up ripple through the net. “Most times it jukes the girl out to the right or the left,” O’Neal said with a grin. The move is one she took from her favorite NBA player, Dwyane Wade. Like the pros, O’Neal gets her work in. A lot goes in to playing four eight-minute quarters. Though she attends Wyoming, she sometimes gets up at 4:45 a.m. to drive to the Lakota YMCA and put shots up with a trainer. Other days, she may go after the Cowboys’ practice. Generously listed at 5foot-5, O’Neal has seen the zones and box-and-one de-

fenses all season. When have missed others games, she’s had to shoulder more of the load. “She gets frustrated obviously because every team is putting so much pressure on her,” Lackey said. “We need other people to step up.” Heading toward the postseason, O’Neal believes recovering from her ACL has made her more passionate about the game she nearly lost. She plays with great determination for her godmother and in hopes of turning heads that maybe turned away.

Frames USA fills the truck for NEEDS The Northeast Emergency Distribution Service was blessed with generosity as it became one of the six recipients of fillthetruck.org, a charity initiative instituted and managed by Frame USA Inc. At the time of delivery there were 160 boxes filled with 4,677 items of canned goods, personal care necessities, winter clothing, hats, gloves, socks and underwear. Frank Morris, As president of NEEDS, recalls, “The amount that we received from Frames USA Inc. in January was way more than we could ever imagine or even hope for. There was so much that an extra storage shed was called into duty!” Frames USA, a national company with its corporate headquarters in Springdale, remarks on its website that one of its “favorite parts of this business is the ability to make a difference” part of which includes its monthly charity. In December, Frames USA, Inc, along with other partners corporate recruited by Frames USA Inc., select a set number of organizations to be beneficiaries of their fillthetruck.org charity drive. The corporate partners, designated as featured sponsors, direct their clientele to the fillthetruck.org website. The website offers contributors a selection of 33 items to buy for donation with featured sponsors adding additional items. There are also options for cash dona-
emergency assistance to the neediest families in the Northeast Cincinnati community. In addition to unexpired canned goods and noncommunity perishables, members can also support NEEDS monetarily by sending checks to: NEEDS, 8341 Kenwood Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45236. The NEEDS food pantry is at the Kenwood Baptist Church, 8341 Kenwood Road, and is open Tuesday and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Donations of canned goods and other items are always accepted at the NEEDS food pantry.

tions. In 2015 the result was six 54-foot semitrucks being filled with items going to NEEDS, The Healing Center, Valley Interfaith, Cain, Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky and the Loveland Interfaith Network. How fillthetruck.org and NEEDS became linked is a dream-cometrue for disadvantaged Sycamore area families. While planning for its FillTheTruck.org sixth drive, Dan Regenold of Glendale, CEO of Frames USA sought out a charity from the East Side of Hamilton County. His wife, Becky, mentioned, that as a member of
Church of Savior, she was familiar with NEEDS, which is in the Kenwood Baptist Church in Kenwood. Dan Regenold sent Jill Gugel, his administrative assistant at Frames USA to check out NEEDS and the rest is history. “FillTheTruck.org was thrilled to see NEEDS added to the list,” Regenold said. “I’m excited to tell you that not only are there more boxes on their way to NEEDS but NEEDS will be part of the Frames USA charities going forward.” Adding, “with the help of our wonderful corporate partners 2015 saw donations up by 60 percent. I am especially pleased with the

But you don’t have to be a business or a big corporation to donate to NEEDS; every single can, hat or school item donated makes a difference to those in need. The NEEDS Board is comprised of representatives from a community of 25 churches and civic organizations who take part in doing God’s work through caring for their neighbors by providing basic emergency assistance.

Tom McKiernan to receive Notre Dame Clubâ€™s 2016 Exemplar Award The Exemplar Award was established by the Notre Dame Club of Greater Cincinnati in 2002 to hold up as an example the achievements of individuals who have provided exemplary, lifelong service to humanity in a manner consistent with the ideals of the University of Notre Dame. McKiernanâ€™s devotion to Catholic education and the Catholic Church have certainly been exemplary and deserving of recognition. McKiernan, who is both the son and the father of Notre Dame graduates, spent 38 years at Seton High School, starting as a teacher, serving as an associate principal, and retiring as the founding president of the Seton High School Foundation. Perhaps even more impressive, though, has been his extensive interhumanitarian national work for the Catholic Church since his retirement. McKiernan is a longtime member of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre, an honorific Order under the protection of the Holy See and the only lay institution of the Vatican State
dedicated to supporting the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem and the presence of Christians in the Holy Land. He is a member of its Grand Magisterium in Rome and president of the Holy Land Commission. McKiernan has made more than 20 trips to the Middle East and more than 30 to Rome, where he reports to the Vatican on the progress being made on projects authorized and funded by the Order. These projects include schools, churches and humanitarian aid throughout the Holy Land, as requested by Catholic and other Christian churches in the area. The commission makes two trips a year, visiting and monitoring the progress of numerous project sites each time. He has also served as secretary and treasurer of Caring Response Madagascar Foundation, a Cincinnati-based organization that raises funds to educate the poor and improve sanitation in remote villages on the island of Madagascar. He has made three trips there to review the progress being made.

Energy bill scam duping customers nationwide Now a warning about an elaborate scam that tries to convince consumers their energy bill is overdue and needs to be paid immediately. Duke Energy says it is aware of this scam, that it’s shown up in five states, and that it’s not unique to Duke since it is happening to all utility companies through the
U.S. and Canada. However, Duke says, complaints about this scam have doubled in Howard the past Ain year. In HEY HOWARD! Greater Cincinnati a customer
named Steve wrote me to say he received a phone call at the end of January from someone claiming to be from Duke Energy. “They told me they have a work order to shut off the electric to my business. I explained my case, thinking they were really Duke representatives, stating that my bill is current – and I
checked online that everything was OK, that payment was received.” But, Steve writes, “They went on to say that it has not been received and they will do an investigation but in the meantime a payment must be made within one hour or the power will be turned off. I told them I can give them a payment over the phone and they said it’s too late for that, that I will have to go to CVS and make a payment of $946.” Steve says he questioned that amount since his last bill was only for $547. “He said it was higher due to reinstatement fees. He gave me a phone number to call. I hung up the phone and decided to call Duke. They said everything was fine on the account-- and they don’t call anyway. They
are looking into it,” Steve wrote. The number Steve was told to call began with 844 which is a toll free number not assigned to any particular part of the U.S. After learning the call was a scam he writes, “I took it upon myself to call that 844 number and it really does say Duke Energy with a menu selection. I pressed 1 and within two rings I did get a person that said, ‘Thank you for calling Duke Energy. How may I direct your call?’ This is a very high tech scam, others need to be alerted.” The scammer was trying to get Steve to put that $946 payment on a prepaid debit card. He would then call that phone number, to those pretending to be with Duke, and give them the numbers on that debit
card. That would allow the scammers to get the $946 immediately and get away without a trace. Duke Energy warns, “Prepaid debit cards are like cash and the transactions cannot be reversed. If a caller specifically asks you to pay by prepaid debit card, this is a red flag.” Duke Energy says it will never call and demand immediate payment without first sending you a notification by mail. In fact, it says it will send several notifications over the course of several weeks prior to electric service disconnection. Duke also says it will never ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone. Howard Ain appears as the Troubleshooter on WKRC-TV Local 12 News. Email him at hey email@example.com..
