The Sharon Woods Photography Travel Series begins this week. Seven programs are scheduled through April 25. There is no program Good Friday, April 18. The photo series showcases amateur photographers’ trips around the world weaves travel stories with cultural history. Here is a look at the first show, sponsored by the Photography Club of Greater Cincinnati:

‘Journey Through Time in Andalusia’

» Friday, March 7, 7:30 p.m. at the Sharon Centre at Sharon Woods, 11450 Lebanon Road. » The photographers: Cliff and Fran Turrell of West Chester Township traveled to Andalucia, Spain in September 2012. “We had heard how interesting this area in Spain was,” Cliff Turrell said, “with the mixture of Moorish and Christian history.” » Trip highlight: The Alhambra, in Granada, citing the varied architecture. “It gave us a sense of how important gardens and water were to the early Muslim rulers,” Turrell said.

“We were amazed with the intricate work we saw on the floros, walls and ceilings in the palace.” It was a tough choice, though, with La Mesquita in Cordoba a very close second. » What’s in the show: The photo presentation spans the Mesquita in Cordoba to the Alcazar in Seville

Princeton City Schools is considering outsourcing its bus services, a move that would save the district millions of dollars over the next several years. A task force of support staff and administrators, which evaluated Princeton’s transportation system along with the services of two outside companies, reported its findings to the board of education at its February meeting, though no action was taken at that time. Director of Student Services Ed Theroux participated in the panel that considered options to align of the district’s procedures, partially outsource or completely outsource. Two bus companies, First Student and Petermann, provided information, and the task force compared savings with services. “Based upon the information provided and depending on the final contract with a provider, Princeton could save between $1 million and $5 million over the next five years,” Theroux said. Princeton spent about $4,973,000 on transportation during the 2012-2013 school year, with approximately $4,854,000 budgeted for the current school year. The district’s bus fleet is aging, and keeping the transportation service in-house means Princeton would have to buy new vehicles. “This purchase would be an additional cost to Princeton beyond the al-

lotted amount in the fiveyear forecast,” Theroux said. The value isn’t just dollars and cents. Several Princeton bus drivers attended the meeting, with one longtime employee describing the relationships she had formed with students and their families over the years. Amy Cook told board members that it would be a bad decision to outsource any of the district’s transportation services. “We as drivers are here, we are ready to help determine the best way to cut our budget and serve our families,” Cook said. “We know we can do it better than any other company, to cut our budget and serve the needs of our families. “We know our families, we know what they need and we know what they expect,” Cook said, asking the board to meet with the drivers to discuss the budget cuts. “These relationships may not be developed and nurtured as they have been with our own bus drivers, compared to a possible outsourcing company,” Theroux said. The two companies that were evaluated included a grandfather clause in their proposals, in which existing drivers would be able to keep their jobs at their current wages. New drivers could also be hired, at wages set by the company. “The outsourcing companies are interested in keeping all of Princeton’s current employSee BUS, Page A2

Funds would extend sidewalk, walking program By Kelly McBride

WYOMING — Sidewalks, and encouragement to use them, are part of a grant proposal to pave the way for kids to walk to school. Wyoming City Council supported the ongoing project to continue the sidewalk along Compton Road. Similar funding last year began the infrastruc-

ture program, with work planned for this year to extend the sidewalk from Hilltop Lane to Poage Farm Road. If the city receives funds from the Safe Routes to School program this year, the sidewalk will continue from Poage Farm Road to Ardon Lane, on the south/southwest side of the street. That portion of the sidewalk likely will be added later this year or

next year, City Manager Lynn Tetley said. Wyoming has asked for $500,000 for the sidewalk project, and another $30,000 for Let’s Move Wyoming, an education and encouragement program that helps kids to walk or bicycle to school, a mission similar to that of the national Safe Routes to School program. Let’s Move Wyoming is a Wyoming Youth Services program that works

to promote a healthier lifestyle among members of the community through activities including an annual scavenger hunt, bike rodeo, among others. Kids that join Let’s Move Wyoming receive a pedometer to track their walking progress, as part of the USA American Discovery Trail program. Safe Routes to School is a full grant program, so no local match is required.

ees,” Theroux said of Petermann and First Student. Board of Education President Lillian Hawkins said the school board would examine the task force’s findings, though she did not say when a decision would be made. “I believe that families will see some changes within the transportation department,” Theroux said. “Whether we stay Princeton-operated or outsource, we will continue to refine our procedures in an effort to reduce overall costs. “We will look at route efficiency and move toward filling the buses based upon bus capacity,” he said, noting that some routes could become longer, with student on the bus longer than they are currently riding. Whether the service stays in-house or moves to an outside company, transportation will be provided. “Princeton will continue to provide transportation,” Theroux said, “including its non-public routes, so families will still receive bus transportation.”

Springdale couple is pride of Lions Club When Jan and Ralph Colegrove told me about the 10th annual Springdale-Forest Park Lions Club March 15 pancake breakfast, they insisted they were not important to the announcement. If you ever met them you would know better. Evelyn Without Perkins the CoCommunity Press legroves columnist and all the other members who work diligently to provide diabetes and glaucoma screenings, eyeglasses, youth scholarships and hospital equipment, many people would be without. The pancake breakfast will be at the Springdale Community Center, 11999 Lawnview Ave., from 8 a.m. to noon. For $6 adults can eat all the pancakes, sausage, fruit cocktail, orange juice, milk, coffee and tea they want ($3 for children 12 and under). The Club Rec youth group will serve. What’s really neat is that IHOP in Springdale will not only provide the food, but will deliver it to the Recreation Center, and the IHOP cook will prepare it according to IHOP standards. Proceeds will go toward two $1000 scholarships. This fundraiser joins many others such as the White Cane Days, the GE Park golf outing and $35 ads for place mats. Membership is $33 every six months and $1 per meeting, which goes right back into the treasury. Ralph joined the Lions Club three years ago and is proud to be associated with Gene Burt, whom Ralph calls “Mr. Springdale and one of the most giving individuals you ever want to see.” A Lions Club member for many years, Gene started the pancake breakfast fundraiser. He asked me to contact Ralph for details about this year’s event. Both the Colegroves served in the military and are members of the

Springdale Police Academy. During nine weeks of three-and-a-ha;f hour classes, they learned about homicides, serving warrants and other law enforcement procedures and listened to an FBI prosecutor. Divulging anything they see or hear about a case is a felony. Ralph talked of riding with the police three times. This program is not just for bragging rights and the personalized emblems they received for their shirts; it serves a purpose. Participants are visiting every Springdale business to get their emergency nighttime phone numbers. Jan grew up in Mason and Ralph hails from Deer Park. Married 53 years, they moved to Springdale 49 years ago because it is a nice, family- oriented neighborhood. It has been the Colgroves’ pleasure to watch the community develop. Ralph praised Mayor Doyle Webster for the SOS Fund that pays for home repairs when a resident can’t. Sam’s Club, Meijer and Kroger have been very supportive. Ralph enjoys playing Santa Claus at Heritage Hill School. He’s coached baseball, basketball and soccer, and served on the Charter Review Board and Recreation Commission. Jan has been a member of the Women’s Club, the Young Author’s Club at Heritage Hill, served as a teacher’s aide and kept on top of everything. Both are Princeton Boosters and have worked at the Princeton concession stand. Their favorite things are going to church and enjoying their four grandchildren. As Ralph says, “I’ve had a happy, full life that I wouldn’t trade. I would marry the same wife and live the same life.” He is a retired salesman who has fun soliciting for the Lions Club because it is an extension of his sales work.

Church offers Ash Wednesday on the go sh Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, and one Wyoming parish is making the sacrament available to folks on the go. It’s the second year that Ascension and Holy Trinity Episcopal Church has offered the blessing on the Burns side of Worthington and Burns avenues in Wyoming, where the church is located. The Rev. Eric Miller will stand at the corner, beginning at 3:30 p.m., to bless passers-by with a prayer and sign of the cross, with ashes, on their foreheads.

Advanced Robot-Assisted Surgery. For me and the entire west side.

Miller invites everyone, whether a parishioner or not, to receive the blessing. It makes the sacrament more accessible to more people, he said. “For a lot of people who have not been inside a church in a while, or those exploring their faith, it can be difficult to come in,” Miller said. “It’s a big deal to walk over the threshold.” More traditional Ash Wednesday services will also take place at 10 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. March 5.

The first hospital of its kind in Greater Cincinnati, is proud to introduce you to Karen, the first patient at Mercy Health – West Hospital to be treated by our state-of-the-art Robot-Assisted Surgical Team. And one of the first to experience West Hospital’s all private, family-friendly, patient rooms. But Karen didn’t stay for long.

CEOs can share ideas at Sharonville chamber roundtable By Kelly McBride

Sharonville’s top executives now have a forum to share ideas and offer support. The Sharonville Chamber of Commerce will hold its first monthly CEO Roundtable Thursday, March 6, at the Holiday Inn

I-275 North, 3855 Hauck Road. The 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. gathering includes breakfast, and is open to mem-

bers of the chamber of commerce who are chief executive officers or presidents of for-profit and nonprofit companies.

Sharonville Chamber President Rich Arnold, who has participated in similar roundtables in the past, said non-members are invited to join the chamber to take advantage of the free offering. “It put Arnold me into a room with a peer group, where we meet and share and learn from each other,” Arnold said of the non-com-

petitive forum. “As a CEO or president, you have nobody else to go to, to ask ‘how did you handle this,’ or ‘is this really true,’” he said. It’s meant to be a candid sharing of information, a sounding board with an understanding of confidentiality. Arnold said one of the keys is an effective facilitator, and though he didn’t name that person, he said the chamber has lined up a strong leader who has past experience in that role. The roundtable is

geared toward companies of around 50 employees, and bring in a few hundred thousand dollars to $1.5 million a year. “A company with 50 employees doesn’t have the same set of circumstances as a company with seven employees,” Arnold said. “We want it to be comparable. This isn’t a networking group,” he said. “This is a professional way to grow and share.” Register at or by calling the chamber office at 554-1722.

creativity. This year’s theme was chosen as a symbol of continuity and connection from its past to its future as Princeton’s high school nears completion and those students will join the middle school students already in the new facility across Chester Road. Examples of student work, as well as activities and music, will be showcased at Princeton High School, 11080 Chester Road, from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 9. This year’s festival will include a community circle painting event, in which guests will participate in a group of spontaneous paintings to celebrate community, connectivity, cooperation and creativity. The artwork will be displayed throughout Princeton’s school buildings. Community art groups will also participate, to showcase their products and services. Music will include choir, band and orchestra groups, as well as the fourth-grade singalong. The NJROTC will participate, as well. More than 1,000 works of student artwork, from kindergarten through grade 12, will include 2-D and 3-D pieces, performance poetry and theater. Applied technology displays will include graphic design, robotics, engineering, digital design, animation and digital photography. Princeton 6-12 Principal William Sprankles said the festival has expanded to a community open house. “We strongly believe in the Princeton advantage and greatly value the

partnerships and relationships we have with our local businesses, agencies and other organizations,” Sprankles said. Art teacher Barbara Stark worked as coordinator of the Festival of Arts to include more of the community around Princeton. “Guests of the festival are invited to participate in more interactive activities, such as our Community Circle Painting event,” Stark said. “The 50 paintings that guests will produce together will give permanent visual evidence of the creativity, cooperation and spirit of community embraced by Princeton staff, students, families and community members,” she said. The Festival of the Arts reflects the district’s emphasis on educating the whole child, Princeton Associate Superintendent Amy Crouse said. “The Festival is a celebration of our award winning art, music and technology programs, as well as other expanding programs that enrich the lives of students,” she said.

rinceton High School’s anatomy and physiology class had a college feel, with a guest lecture from a surgeon at Beacon Orthopaedics. Dr. Brian Wallace, a fellow at Beacon Orthopaedics, presented the anatomy of the knee to 50 students at Princeton High School. The guest lecturer in Dave Buquo’s honors anatomy and physiology class explained the bones, ligaments, tendons and nerves, then described how they work together, and what happens when they’re injured. The presentation included MRI scans, photos and graphics to illustrate how the knee works, and how it’s fixed through surgery. It’s part of an outreach to several schools in the Cincinnati area by Beacon. The students, mainly seniors, said they liked the vision presentation because it included photos and MRI scans of the joint, as well as illustrations of office visit tests to determine injury, which made it real for them. “It had a college feel,” JiA’nna Cox said of the lecture hall feel of the session. “He gave us real pictures and explained it from the inside,” Courtney Dick said. “He gave us a view, rather than reading from a book.” “He explained it in scientific terms,” Darron Coates said. “Then he explained it so we could understand.” Ashley Wilson said she was

surprised to learn the differences in ligaments that support the knee, and why some areas are more prone to injury. “We think of it as just a joint,” Buquo said. “But it’s a complex structure.” Wallace’s presentation showed just how complex it is, and the doctor said he hoped to reach even one student. “I’m hoping to influence even one student to pursue a

career in orthopedic medicine.” A handful of students will visit Beacon Orthopaedics in Sharonville next week, where they will participate in lab dissection on cadaver knees. In the spring, students will learn about the shoulder, with a similar opportunity to participate in a lab dissection at Beacon Orthopaedics.

Sharonville Elementary second-graders worked to create “Thank You” books for the Sharonville firefighters and police to say thank you to the first responders of 9/11. Second-grade teacher Jenny Powers said,

“Teaching our students about The Constitution is an honor. Students need to know and understand about how our country began.” Every week Sharonville Firefighters come to school and tutor students.

A.J. Kowal at peace after state final match By Mark D. Motz

COLUMBUS — One point from the title.

Some might agonize over it, but Princeton High School senior wrestler A.J. Kowal seemed at peace. Kowal, trying to become the first Viking to win an individual state title since 1966, lost a 6-5 decision to Massillon Perry senior Toney Dailey for the Division I championship at 160 pounds. Dailey caught Kowal being a little too aggressive in the third period to earn the takedown that decided the match. “I knew he was fast and he knew I was strong,” Kowal said. “We were just trying to find a weakness on each other. I was pushing a little too hard and he got me. It was a good match.” “As much as it (stinks) to get so close to a state title, the whole experience was amazing. I wouldn’t change a thing.” Kowal broke his own school record for single-season pins and earned the Princeton career mark for victories during the regular season. He became district champion on his way to state. At the state meet, Kowal pinned Russell Porter of Willoughby South in 3:57 to win his opening match Feb. 27. He pinned Scott Deluse of Lancaster in 55 seconds in the quarterfinals. Kowal faced Michael Coleman of Hudson in the state semifinals Feb. 28, winning 3-2 to earn a spot in the state finals March 1. “The crowd in general was pretty much in favor of Dailey,” Kowal said. “But I had my own cheering section. My family was there, some really good friends from Cincinnati came up, even some some people from out of town. It was great.” Princeton senior Brendan Selmon

(132) also competed in Columbus. He lost 11-2 in a major decision against Nolan Whitney of Walsh Jesuit, but bounced back with an 8-3 win against Hunter Ladrier of Lakewood St. Edward’s in the consolation bracket Feb. 27.

Selmon lost his second-round consolation match Feb. 28, falling 2-1 to Jason Spencer of Massillon Perry after two 30-second tie-break periods. Kowal said he’s going to take some time off before beginning preparations to wrestle in college.

“Wrestling is what I do,” he said. “I can’t stop it altogether. But I’m going to take a good, long break and relax for a little while before I get going. I don’t have anything specific I’m training for before college, so I’m just going to enjoy myself.”

Henderson helps Princeton in elevated tourney role By Mark D. Motz

SHARONVILLE — Geneticists try to decipher the DNA code. Behaviorists debate nature versus nurture. Princeton High School junior Corneisha Henderson demonstrates both good genes and good effort come in to play when creating a basketball player. The 5-foot-8 guard has a mother and grandmother who played competitive basketball and who still work with her on her game.. “My grandma has a left-handed hook shot you can’t stop,” Henderson said She has toiled in relative anonymity to elevate her own game, especially in the postseason. Henderson raised her scoring average more than five points so far in

tournament play. The Vikings beat Colerain 73-44 Feb. 24 to win a Division I sectional title and land a spot in the district championship March 1 against McAuley. “My teammates push me to do whatever I can to help the team,” she said. “I don’t want to let them down.” Princeton head coach Jill Phillips said, “To make a good tourney run we have to have players step up. We’re going to need three players consistently scoring in double figures.” Two of those are nearly a given with Ohio State recruit and All-America selection Kelsey Mitchell (24.9 points per game to go along with 4.5 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 4.1 steals) and senior forward Carlie Pogue, who averages 12 points and 8.4 rebounds. “They’re going to focus on Kelsey, but

we’ve got other players who can play and who can hurt you,” Phillips said. “Corneisha is one of those we’re looking for to step up her game in the tournament and she’s done it so far.” In fact, Henderson has had games of18, nine and 11 points in three sectional tournament games for a 12.7 points per game tournament average, 5.7 more than her 7.0 regular season scoring clip. “If you go back and look at the stats, she’s shooting over 30 percent from the three-point line,” Phillips said. “She’s the next-best outside shooter behind Kelsey.” Which is something Henderson worked on intentionally “That’s just spending time in the gym,” she said. “With my height and my size, See HOOPS, Page A7

Wyoming girls look to future after tough McNick loss By Scott Springer

WYOMING — One of the concerns Wyoming High School girls basketball coach Gerry Lackey had entering the Division II sectional at Withrow was the long 11-day layoff from the end of the regular season until tournament time. After Wyoming defeated Summit Country Day 54-42 on Feb. 8 to finish 21-1, they had to wait until Feb. 19 for their tournament opener with Goshen. Against the overmatched Goshen girls, Lackey’s Cowboys prevailed 46-24 with sophomore Ashli O’Neal hitting a season-high five treys and scoring 23 points. When some thought Wyoming had dodged a bullet with New Richmond losing, Lackey was still leery of McNicholas with its battle-tested schedule. The veteran of a state championship with Mason in 2000 was right, as the Greater Catholic

Hoops coming up I was more in the post so I’ve had to learn how to shoot outside and work on my ball handling.” Henderson said playing with an All-American helped her game, too. “A player like Kelsey makes you better,” she said. “She’s not a selfish player. Besides herself,

League Coed school nipped the Cowboys by a bucket, 54-52 to win the sectional. Unfortunately, the game ended in controversy as McNicholas scored a basket when many thought time had expired. The following is part of an email Lackey sent to the Southwest Board about the end of the game. “With the score tied 5252, we had position of the ball inside of 15 seconds remaining in the game. Our point guard initiated action after the 10-second mark and drove and shot a runner that went off the rim. One of our forwards rebounded the ball and attempted a shot, but was blocked from behind. As McNick gained possession the McNick coach jumped up off the bench calling for time out. The timer thought he heard a whistle and stopped the clock. Apparently there was no whistle so after an undetermined amount of time, he restarted the clock. McNick made two

passes and ended up scoring a layup as the buzzer sounded.” In the end, the Lady Rockets were the one controversial basket better despite a 21-point effort from O’Neal and 14 points and 10 rebounds from ju-

she wants everyone else to play well. She knows it’s a team game.” Henderson said her favorite basketball memory came earlier this season when the Vikings knocked off then-unbeaten and topranked Mason High School 63-52 Feb. 1. “We came out as a team and and we got it done,” she said. “I think a lot of people doubted us before

that game.” With its sectional title, Princeton rides an 11game win streak into the district finals March 1 against McAuley. The Vikings have not lost since falling 78-56 Jan. 18 to Regis Jesuit of Denver. Their only loss to an Ohio team was a 63-54 decision Dec. 9 against Kettering Fairmont in the fourth game of the season.

nior Emily Wadds. “We protested immediately, pointing out that had the clock not been stopped, it was obvious, in our opinion, that McNick would not have been able to score,” Lackey said. “I

realize that players need to play until they hear a whistle, but when they saw the clock was stopped, some of them stopped as well assuming that McNick was given a timeout.”


Princeton claimed the Division I girls district title March 1 with a 77-64 win over McAuley at Harrison High School. Kelsey Mitchell scored 40 points on 17-for-29 shooting from the field to lead all scorers, while Carlie Pogue added 12 and Jasmyn Hardin scored 11. The Vikings (24-2) advanced to the Division I regional tournament, where they face Kettering Fairmont at 6:15 March 5 at Wright State University’s Nutter Center. The Firebirds enter the regional with a 23-2 record after beating Mount Notre Dame 55-49 in the district championship. The winner meets either Centerville or Lakota West at 7:30 p.m. March 8 for a berth in the state final four starting at 6 p.m. March 14 at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus. The state finals are set for 8:30 p.m. March 15.

As for next season, O’Neal and Wadds return along with sophomore Haley Stewart, who is close to six feet tall. Haley’s sister, Marta, departs with graduation along with guards Natalie Burchard, Katie Sena and forward Anna Kamphouse. Lackey will be looking for another “tower” to lean next to Wadds and Stewart next fall. “Our back three in our 2-3 zone poses a problem because of their length,” Lackey said. With O’Neal and Wadds handling the scoring, Stewart should be able to help in another facets of the game along with promising freshman Kayla Hampton. Junior Olivia Cunningham is also slated to return. “She comes in and gives us a few good minutes,” Lackey said. The Cowboys won their first championship since 2008 by going 13-1 in the CHL and 22-2 overall in Lackey’s second year at the helm.

Low information voters are leading us to chaos Did you ever wonder how so much hate is developed in some countries so that public buildings are bombed and public officials are assassinated? Chaos is coming. The “government” wants to disarm its citizens –not to protect you – but to protect government officials’ power over law abiding citizens. Well now you can see for yourself how the people in power in government in the United States disregard the rights of the common citizens. You watch as the president of the United States boldly lies constantly on national televi-

sion. This month the FBI is instructed to not hold criminal investigations of the IRS being used for political purposes. Ted Day The ChiCOMMUNITY PRESS cago way of GUEST COLUMNIST politics is now here on a national basis – destroy the competition with fear, intimidation and financial bankruptcy. Our president was trained in the corrupt environment of Chicago. Crime and corruption is acceptable if done on behalf of the people in

Fireplace, wood stove safety tips to help protect your health Home fire safety tips include more than installing fire alarms and developing a fire escape plan. While less obvious, fire places and wood stoves can produce pollutants that can harm your health, if not addressed. If you smell smoke inside your home, that’s a sign that harmful air pollutants are in your home. Wood smoke contains a mixture of air pollutants including microscopic particles. Studies show particle pollution can harm the lungs and heart and even cause early death. According to the U.S. EPA, particle pollution can trigger asthma attacks, impair lung development in children, increase symptoms of COPD and cause coughing, wheezing and chest tightness. For people with heart disease, particle pollution is linked to heart attacks, irregular heartbeat, heart failure and stroke. People at greater risk from particle pollution, including wood smoke, are older adults, children and teens, and people with certain health conditions such as heart or lung disease and asthma. New or expectant mothers may also want to take precautions to protect the health of their babies. Burning the right wood, the right way, in the right woodburning appliance can reduce harmful air pollution.

Burn the right wood

Not all wood is the same. Always burn dry, seasoned wood to reduce particle pollution. Softwoods such as Douglas fir need six months to dry and hardwoods such as oak need at least 12 months. Gar-

bage, plastic, treated lumber and driftwood should never be burned.

Burn the right way

Megan Hummel

Wet wood is a problem for your health and your pocketbook. It creates a lot of smoke and burns inefficiently, meaning the heat literally goes up in smoke. Moisture meters are inexpensive and available at hardware stores to test the wetness of wood before burning. Wood should only be used if the moisture content is 20 percent or less.


Burn in the right appliance

Like an old car that belches smoke out of the tailpipe, old wood stoves are bad polluters and less efficient. Newer, EPA-certified wood stoves and fireplace inserts (wood stoves designed to fit into a fireplace), reduce air pollutants by 70 percent compared to older models. Remember, there are also some important regulations for open (outdoor) burning. Where you live may determine whether you can burn. To learn more about air pollution or open burning please visit Megan Hummel is the public relations coordinator for the Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency.

A publication of

power – the people with the police and military under their command. Government use of the FBI and the EPA and the IRS to harass and attempt to bankrupt political opponent supporters such as the Gibson Guitar Co. is acceptable and now common practice. The Benghazi, Libya, torture and murder of the Ambassador of the United States, Chris Stevens, and the murder of three heroic Americans – covered up as a demonstration against a video and no prosecution of the perpetrators. The NSA scandal, and the illegal surveillance of news

reporters, and the disregard of the separation of powers as provided in the Constitution. The president unilaterally declaring Congress in “recess’ so he can appoint his friends to powerful positions without Congressional approval. The cover-up of the sale of hundreds of guns to Mexican Drug cartels and the murder of DEA agents and thousands of Mexican citizens in the Fast and Furious gun running program under Attorney General Eric Holder, appointed by the president. Eric Holder was cited under Contempt of Congress for his lies to Congress – however, he is kept in his posi-

tion by the president. The Syrian and the Iranian past, current and coming holocausts – ignored by the president of the United States. And now the war on the “sanctity of life” as well as the “ war on Christianity” on our churches and on our military being waged by our government. How can the electorate be so uninformed to elect to power such people of such low moral character and deceit? May God help us all. Ted Day is a resident of Montgomery.

CH@TROOM Feb. 26 question Local GOP leaders are making a bid to host the Republican National Convention in 2016. Would this be good for the area? Why or why not?

“Economically it would be great for the area. Bring in lots of outside monies. It would also make it easier for correct (not right) minded people of Ohio to do a little protesting against the party of do nothing. Of course they won't care as they have shown a growing disdain for the populace. They, the Republicans, are in office only to serve the wealthy minority and big business.” J.Z.

“Given that Cincinnati is a hotbed of Republican fervor and that Ohio is a key battleground state in every election, why not? Big conventions bring lots of money and attention. Even Democrats and independents should benefit from this. Bring it on. F.S.D.

“Sure! I am not Republican, but any time we can bring more money into Cincinnati, the better it is for our area. “Downtown is really booming these days, particularly Over-the-Rhine, and there are lots of venues for hotels and restaurants, as well as our convention center. I was so pleased

with how the city supported the wonderful 'World Choir Games' and the city truly sparkled. “I imagine the security involved will be a headache, however, for those who work or live downtown, but perhaps the advantages will outweigh the disadvantages overall for the reputation of Cincinnati, which can use all the positive press it can get these days.” D.P.

“I don't consider myself partisan, but as someone who is politically engaged I can't help but respond to partisanship when it permeates one of the parties. “Twenty years ago the Republicans were telling their newly elected state representatives that they had to vote the party line or they would face major opposition in the next primary. Term limits have rubbed out most of the benefits of institutional memory and civility is

now an endangered species in both Columbus and Washington. “If you look at the states with strong Republican leanings, it is pretty much a list of the poor states. Ohio has long been right on the swing line. And Cincinnati is the most Republican urban area in Ohio. “If I were a Republican leader I would certainly want to see the convention come here. It will bring as much money into the area as any other large national convention, and a lot of excitement and interest which Cincinnati could play up for the long run. “As someone who would view the event with distaste, I'm not afraid of it. I don't think the current Republican party is capable of nominating someone who could win the national election, and until they learn to practice policies which unite rather than divide the people of this state and this nation, that will remain the case. N.F.

Experience 1968 Cincinnati through auditor reappraisal photos Sometimes the retirement of an Auditor’s office employee yields unusual results. In this case, carefully stashed in a cardboard box next to a filing cabinet were 554 long-forgotten black and white photos of downtown parcels, each with a handwritten parcel number identifying each building. The images were taken in 1968 as part of the 1969 auditor reappraisal of downtown Cincinnati properties. We thought area residents would enjoy them as much as we have, so they are now posted to our website ( You can access them from the homepage icon titled “Downtown Cincinnati 1968 Vintage Photographs” located on the right hand side of the page. They are catalogued in folders by the Auditor book and page


which is the first seven digits of an Auditor parcel number; and we have included a “cheat sheet of major streets” with each folder so viewers can get

their bearings. Some of these parcels still exist today. Others have been consolidated into new parcels when development razed old buildings and built new ones. Where the parcel still exists, the 1968 photo is now included on the image tab for that parcel. Do a property search for a specific parcel and click on the dropdown menu above the current photo to access the older images, including the 1968 image.

There were some nostalgic tugs on the heartstrings when we came across old icons long ago razed like the Schubert, Cox, Albee, Times, and Capitol theatres. We had many a chuckle over the automobiles captured in the photos and the frozen-in-time billboards like “Humphrey for President” and “The US needs fixin’ Let’s use Nixon” that decorated storefronts. Longtime Cincinnatians will recognize many of the businesses we regularly enjoyed: Wiggins, Birdies, Herschede, Ray Lammers Music, The Rib Pit, Hirschmans The Wheel and Trivet Antiques to name just a few of those you’llrecognize in these photos. Enjoy your step back in time. Dusty Rhodes is Hamilton County auditor.

Mussel, farro recipes welcome Lenten season vegetables with the farro. Add mushrooms with onions and garlic.

I know I say this just about every year at this time, but I can’t believe it’s already Lent. The wild yellow aconite that our dear friend, Ike Leaf, helped me plant years ago is already up in my woods bordering the river. These two occurrences make me realize that spring will be a reality soon. With the abundance of fresh seafood available this time of year, try new recipes Rita while Heikenfeld adding RITA’S KITCHEN bonus points for your health. Check out my blog for my mom’s salmon patty recipe with cucumbersour cream sauce.

Can you help?

Mussels steamed with white wine and shallots

Usher in the Lenten season with Rita’s steamed mussels.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Delicious with crusty bread to mop up juices or atop linguine. Mussels that are open before cooking should be discarded. Likewise, any that are not open after cooking should be tossed out. Substitute butter for the olive oil if you want.

Give bottom of very large pot a good coating of olive oil. Over medium heat, add shallots and half the garlic. Cook a couple of minutes, don’t let garlic brown. Add mussels and turn heat to high. Stir well to coat and add rest of garlic, and wine. Cook about 5 minutes, or until mussels are opened. Sprinkle with parsley and tomatoes, and serve.

Olive oil ⁄4 cup minced shallots 4 real large cloves garlic, minced 2 pounds cleaned mussels 1 cup dry white wine or more as needed Handful fresh parsley Chopped fresh tomatoes (optional) 1

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Stockpot or Dutch oven: What’s the differ-

ence? A stockpot typically is taller than a Dutch oven. A Dutch oven is shorter with more surface area on the bottom. They both can hold the same amount of food, depending upon the size. If you have to choose, choose the Dutch oven since it’s more versatile.

Farro with onions, garlic and cheese

Farro is an ancient, healthy wheat whose history goes back thousands of years. It comes in several forms. Semipearled farro is what I

use since it cooks quickly. This complex carbohydrate contains fiber, which helps lower cholesterol better than brown rice, and also helps the immune system, along with helping you feel fuller longer and with more energy. ⁄2 cup onion, chopped 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 cup semi-pearled farro 3 cups liquid (vegetable, chicken or beef broth) Romano or Parmesan cheese 1

and add onions and garlic. Cook for a few minutes until onions are soft. Add farro and cook until coated and smells fragrant, again about a few minutes. Add liquid, and cook partly covered until farro is done, about 25 minutes. It will taste chewy. Drain excess liquid if necessary and add salt and pepper. Sprinkle with cheese.

Round steak with red gravy. Anderson Township reader Holly Nance really wants to be able to make her mom’s round steak. Here’s what she said, so if you can help, let me know. “My mother used to make a good round steak with a red gravy that we all enjoyed. She passed away right before last Thanksgiving and now I do not have that recipe of hers, as I know she made that from her head and nothing was written down. “I do remember she said she cut the round steak into pieces, coated them with flour, browned it a bit in a large skillet and then later she poured ketchup all over it - that’s all I can remember!!! Can you help with this one and fill me in on what you think would be the rest of this recipe? Surely there has to be a recipe out there similar to this. We would all like to carry on with this meal in our family.”

Anderson artist makes name for herself It started with a smile. Alexandra Helen Guard was born on March 5, 1989. Like all newborns, Allie brought smiles to the faces of her parents and family. Unlike most newborns, Allie was born with Down Syndrome, so some special questions accompanied those first smiles. Now, 24 years later, the question of what her life would be like is answered with a big grin: “I’m an artist,” says Guard. For the last year and a half Guard has been making a name for herself with brightly hued drawings and one-of-a-kind jewelry and accessories using her unique eye for color exploration. “Smile In Color – A One-Woman Show” featuring original works by Guard will open at the new Sharonville Fine Arts Center on Friday, March 7. There will be a reception that evening from 6-9 pm. The show will run through March 29.

“I’m excited,” Guard said with a smile, “It’s going to be amazing.” In addition to her own work, local painters Jeffery Johns, Stewart Katz and Christian Dallas will also be contributing with original collaborative works using Guard’s art. “We’re thrilled for Allie”, says proud mom Sharon Guard. Guard is

Family Ministry Director at Anderson Hills United Methodist Church and in her free time creates allie art® jewelry from Allie’s colorful design sheets. “We’re blessed that so many people have responded favorably to Allie’s work.” The demand for Allie’s work has gone beyond Cincinnati as word spreads of her talent and

Cincinnati Community ToolBank has received a $20,000 grant from The Greater Cincinnati Foundation to fund the tool lending program. The Cincinnati Community ToolBank is a nonprofit tool lending program that serves charitable organizations by putting high-quality tools in the hands of the volunteers who are painting schools, repairing seniors’ roofs, landscaping public spaces, and more, guaranteeing that every volunteer is equipped with the tools they need to get the job done. ToolBank’s resources empower all nonprofit organizations to perform

larger, more ambitious, and more frequent service projects in the community. Since opening in July 2012, the Cincinnati ToolBank has served 81 charitable organizations, enabling them to equip more than 27,000 volunteers with more than $450,000 worth of tools used to complete more than 1,700 community projects. The GCF grant will be used to cover general operational expenses of the tool lending program which are critical to fulfilling the ToolBanks mission. These expenses include tool inventory acquisition, tool repair and maintenance supplies,


staff and administrative expenses necessary to operate the program. “We are thrilled with the generosity and support of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation,” said Kat Pepmeyer, executive director of the ToolBank. “General operating funds are often challenging to secure and critical to sustaining our operations. GCF, a very well-respected community foundation, typically does not support general operating requests especially for organizations as young as the Cincinnati ToolBank and to have their vote of confidence is a tremendous compliment the organization.”
