Half Day Café adds seventh day brunch By Kelly McBride Reddy

Half Day Cafe

kreddy@communitypress.com

Diners will be able to order brunch from a unique menu as Half Day Cafe celebrates four years in Wyoming by opening for business on Sundays. The restaurant is open 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sundays. Owners Dale and Patty Hipsley said that though business has been steady, they wanted to offer the added day of business to build revenue. Patty Hipsley said they considered opening for dinner, but that presented additional challenges for staffing and food choices. Plus, Sunday brunch allows the Hipsleys to stay true to the name Half Day Cafe, It’s not just another day at Half Day. The menu will be unique to Sunday brunch, and the restaurant will be run on those days by general manager Mike Schneder and Nicole Zuefle, lead chef for brunch. Schneder and Zuefle created the Sunday menu, which includes dishes such as golden syrup dumplings with sage sausage and fennel cream, house-cured salmon and vegetarian goetta.

Where: 1 Wyoming Ave., at the corner of Springfield Pike and Wyoming Avenue. Hours: 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday (beginning March 21) Menu: www.halfdaycafe.org It will include some Half Day classics, such as mango butter rum French toast and egg strata, a casserole with egg bread, pepperjack cheese, sage sausage and caramelized onions. Diners also will be able to choose among a variety of housemade bagels. “When we opened four years ago, it was Patty and me,” Dale Hipsley said. “Mom and Pop, doing everything. “We had to be closed at least one day a week. Sunday was our natural choice as a day for worship, rest and family,” he said. “But now, four years later, we’re fortunate to have more members on our team who can take on additional responsibility,” Hipsley said of Schneder and Zuefle. “Both are very talented and seasoned kitchen professionals who have a genuine passion for delicious and interesting food.”

E-mail chain connects Glendale residents after break-ins By Kelly McBride Reddy kreddy@communitypress.com

A communication system set up among a group of Glendale residents has served as a reminder of how important that contact is after a rash of breakins in the village. Several unlocked cars were broken into March 21. One was stolen and two were moved to other locations. A pool house and garage were burglarized as well. Glendale police issued a Code Red Alert of the thefts and attempted thefts of items that included a television, iPod, Syrius radio system, DVDs and CDs, as well as loose change found in the vehicles. The Code Red is issued to all residents of Glendale, as well as others who sign up for the service. The village reported 1,124 calls that connected with 87 percent of Glendale residents. Police are looking for two suspects. Similar incidents were

reported over the weekend in Fairfield and in Blue Ash March 22. The area that includes Chester Road and nearby streets in Glendale had previously initiated an Email chain to keep neighbors apprised of happenings in that area, and it has now been expanded to include more homeowners as well as the chief of police. “It’s an effort to stay in contact,” said Councilwoman Jenny Kilgore, who lives in the area of Glendale that includes Chester, St. Edmunds, Kingfisher and Albion streets. “By having contact information, we can disperse any information very quickly and be aware of any event or issue that affects us in this pocket of the village.” The list was started about three years ago by resident Susan McCormick. “It has come in handy as a quick and easy way to survey residents on issues,” Kilgore said. “We are expanding it and adding

homes to update.” Chief Dave Warman has added his name to the list, and has reminded residents of safeguards to deter similar crimes in the future. Pat Klaus recalled that evening because her dogs were unusually agitated. “My dogs went crazy,” she said. “We didn’t see anything, but they would not settle down. They were inconsolable. “With people walking up and down the road (on a regular basis) we thought it was just that.” In the morning, she received the e-mail from McCormick. “Susan had notified the entire road, and people were immediately responsive,” Klaus said of her neighbors. Warman said the breakins were not indicative of typical activity in Glendale. “It happens all over the county, these types of crimes of opportunity that can happen everywhere,”

“It happens all over the county, these types of crimes of opportunity that can happen everywhere. People get comfortable and tend to leave things unlocked. It can happen anywhere.”

Warman said. “People get comfortable and tend to leave things unlocked. It can happen anywhere.” Klaus said she and her neighbors will continue to communicate, to be aware of activity nearby. “When you get something out like that (e-mail list) you may not need it, but when a situation occurs it can save people from (future incidents),” Klaus said. “People in our area are not going to let this happen again. “They are vigilant,” she said. “Any suspicious activity will not go unnoticed in that area of Glendale.”

Born in Kankakee, Illinois, and educated in t h e i r parochial schools, Dr. Richard A. Evelyn Denoyer Perkins attended St. P r o c o p i u s Community and Olivet Press Nazarene columnist colleges, the University of Illinois and Southern Illinois University. He earned a degree in business administration with a minor in education, a masters and advanced certificate, and a PhD in administration in curriculum and instruction. Denoyer also served four years in the Navy. During his school years, he did what it took to succeed: painted houses, worked in grocery stores and in a Sears warehouse, and was a substitute mail carrier during summers and Christmas holidays. He and his wife, Patricia, even delivered newspapers in rural Illinois. In Kankakee, Dick taught the sixth-grade for four years, advancing to principal and then superintendent. Four years later, he began to receive unsolicited offers from all over the county to head other school

districts. Puzzled, he learned that one of his University of Illinois professors had recommended him. His decision to move to Evendale and accept the superintendent’s position at Princeton City Schools set the wheels in motion for more than 20 years dedicated to continually improving their administration and curriculum. Numerous awards for excellence in math, chemistry, music, speech and debate, teachers and administration followed. Dear to his heart was his far-sighted program to interact with families to get them off welfare, find employment and improve their children’s grades. Although the program stopped after he retired, Dick remains in contact with various professionals to promote student advancement. One example is an engineering firm that helps youngsters go to college. After graduation, they will work for the company. Industrious and innovative, he’s a consultant to 57 Ohio school districts, providing technology driven services and products he developed for evaluation, test scores, attendance and grades. He also developed a similar system for surveys, observations and ratings in many different categories

Farm director Sandra Murphy acknowledges that

Summit Mock Trial program qualifies for regionals

PROVIDED.

Summit Country Day’s Silver team recently advanced to the Regionals in Ohio Center for Law Related Education’s Mock Trial competition. Team members are, from left, Isabelle Saldana of Mason, Alex Finch of Anderson Township, Charlie Michel of Pleasant Ridge, Vincent Tamer of Wyoming, Carolyn Boyce of Anderson Township, Kyle Gundrum of Saylor Park, Rachel Argo of Lincoln Heights, Alex Marcelius of Anderson Township and Amna Fazlani of Golf Manor.

Each year the Ohio Center for Law Related Education hosts the annual statewide Mock Trial competition for High School teams. Ohio runs the second-largest Mock Trial competition in the nation. This year, 22 Hamilton County high schools sent 48 teams to compete in the Hamilton County District Competition to earn a chance to move on to Regionals. Nearly 400 students and more than 100 faculty coaches and legal advisors were involved. Only 14 of the 48 teams who competed won both rounds and advanced to the Regionals.

For the fifth consecutive year one of Summit County Day’s teams advanced. Summit Silver not only won both rounds but was one of eight teams to receive a winning score from all three judges in their court room for both rounds. The Summit Silver team consists of four attorneys (Alex Finch, Kyle Gundrum, Charlie Michel, Isabelle Saldana), four witnesses (Vincent Tamer, Carolyn Boyce, Rachel Argo, Alex Marcellus) and one timekeeper (Amna Fazlani). Additionally, several students on all three Summit teams won individual

TONY MEALE/STAFF

Princeton High School senior Marcus Davis, who led the Greater Miami Conference in batting average last year, will likely miss the season due to a shoulder injury.

The Princeton High School baseball team was expecting a lot out of senior Marcus Davis this year. And for good reason. Davis, who has signed with Louisiana State University, led the Greater Miami Conference in hitting last year with a .500 average and topped the Vikings in runs (26), hits (34), doubles (seven) and steals (13) and was second in RBIs (17). As a pitcher, he had 22 strikeouts in 24 innings and defensively didn’t commit a single error in center field. Davis, however, recently had surgery to repair a right-shoulder tear on his non-throwing arm, an injury sustained during the basketball season. “The surgery went well, and he should be fine,” Princeton head coach Rocky Hubbard said. “But he probably won’t be back this season.” The Vikings went 11-15 last year and finished ninth in the GMC. “We were expecting a lot out of Marcus, but I think the guys will be OK,” Hubbard said.

One player Princeton will lean on is senior outfielder Spencer Ware, who will play football for LSU. As a junior, Ware hit .310 with a .457 on-base percentage; he was second on the team in runs (23) and steals (10), tied for third in RBIs (16) and was fourth in hits (22). “He’ll step up,” Hubbard said. Princeton also has its entire infield returning, including junior third baseman Danny Roper, senior shortstop Dale Quint and senior second baseman Bryan Shelby. “Danny played a great third base as a sophomore,” Hubbard said. Quint and Shelby, meanwhile, both hit under .200 last year but had on-base percentages of .341 and .320, respectively. Hubbard is confident their averages will rise. “They’ll improve because last year was the first time they (played varsity),” he said. “It being their first year and getting used to GMC pitching, we hoped for better, but they’ve learned quite a bit and look pretty good.” The Vikings also plan to be more aggressive on the base paths.

“We’re going to put pressure on teams this year,” Hubbard said, whose squad stole 40 bases last season. “We have a lot of team speed and a number of guys who can run. In years past, we’ve been conservative, but this year we’re going to go. We’re running.” One question mark for Princeton is pitching. “Our pitching is a year behind,” Hubbard said. “We have some senior pitchers but a lot of young ones.” Roper, who last year had a 5.04 ERA with 12 strikeouts in 16.1 innings, will be the ace. Rounding out the staff are junior Ben Young and seniors Ryan Krause and Mike Moore. “We have about five or six juniors behind them who (could see action),” Hubbard said. The Vikings hope to improve their standing in the GMC, which they last won in 2006, when they shared first-place honors with Lakota West, Hamilton and Oak Hills. Lakota West has won outright GMC titles the last three years. “The GMC’s going to be tough again, but I think we’ll get better as the season goes,” Hubbard said. “We’ll be all right.”

Baseball swings into season for locals St. Xavier

Baseball teams from across Ohio are launching into the spring season as the 2010 high school campaign kicks off. Following a fast-paced regular season, teams launch into post-season play May 8 with contenders competing in the state championships June 3-5. Moeller, the defending Division I state champions, starts the season atop Cincinnati’s polls with a number of talented teams chasing the Crusaders. Here’s a look at more local teams:

Wyoming

The Wyoming baseball team went 14-14 last season but returns several starters, including senior pitcher Michael Becker, senior third baseman Evan Aleshire and juniors Joe Panos, Robert Gomez and Ryan Bundy. “We graduated 11 seniors from last year’s team so we’re pretty young this year,” head coach Chris Fiehrer said. “We will be very solid defensively and will have good team speed on the bases.” Some of the top newcomers are sophomores Adam Chalmers and Chris Campbell and junior Colin

TONY MEALE/STAFF

Wyoming High School junior infielder Evan Aleshire slides safely into home against Batavia High School in the Division II Sectional Final at Lakota East on May 19, 2009. Wyoming won 10-6. Fogel. Justin Slivken is also back on the team after a year in Panama as an exchange student. Aleshire has been the team’s most consistent hitter for the last two seasons,

and he will be counted on to provide offense again this spring. Panos was the top pitcher last season. After him the Cowboys will have to develop some pitching depth.

“We have a lot of young arms and will need them to come through to have a successful season,” Fiehrer said. “As a team, our expectations are very high.”

The Bombers endured three losing streaks of three games or more last season, including two four-game swoons to finish 12-14 overall and 6-4 in the GCL. To stave off tough stretches, St. X, which lost eight games last year when scoring six or more runs, will need better starting pitching. The Bombers will rely on a trio of senior hurlers – Drew Hart, Brandon Polking and Tommy White – as well as juniors Conor Gilligan and Mitch Proctor. Offensively, junior catcher Nick Albers will lead the way; last year he hit .298 with an on-base percentage of .435, scored 11 runs and had seven RBIs. Senior Patrick Guetle, meanwhile, hit .289 with an OBP of .421. Other contributors include Nick Weston, John Keefe, Jake Rumpke, Chris Rutz, Cameron Adams, Chad Sudbrack and Matt Wilson, Conor Hundley and Jake Sambrookes. The Bombers will be tested early and often with games at Moeller (March 31) and against Elder (April 5) and La Salle (April 7). St. X last won a league title in 2004.

last season for the Crusaders. Held said he expects the team to play with a bullseye on its back after winning a state title last spring. “We always feel at Moeller that people are gunning for us, but coming off a state title, it’s bigger. We’ve dealt with it all offseason and talked about it,” Held said. Held also said he thinks having some guys back from last year’s run will make things easier in the tournament when the team starts playing big games in front of big crowds. Still, there are enough players on this team who weren’t part of last year’s championship team who are hungry for a title. “The rest of those guys

want to win a title of their own,” Held said. The Greater Catholic League should be difficult, per usual, and the Crusaders also have a difficult nonleague schedule. Developing pitching depth will be instrumental in Moeller’s early season success and Held said the Crusaders should be fun to watch this year. “We play the right brand of baseball. We try to be fundamentally sound, and with our great team speed, we will cover a lot of ground in the outfield. We can hit and pitch a bit, and we’ll be fun to watch on the bases.”

The goals are the same any year for the Moeller High School baseball team, the returning Division I state champions. “The expectations are always high for us,” head coach Tim Held said. “We want to have a good season and a good GCL season and make another tournament run.” On paper, the Crusaders may be even more talented than the team that won the state championship last spring. “Out in the field, our defense and our hitting is more talented,” Held said. “Our pitching depth is unproven after our first two pitchers, David Whitehead and Robby Sunderman.” Moeller will look to a number of seniors who were on the junior varsity team last year to step up and provide the pitching depth. Among those pitchers are Kevin Brennan, Zach Radcliff and Tyler Grau. Juniors Kevin Brinkman and Alex Barlow will also have key roles on the team. In addition to Sunderman and Whitehead, two of the top returning players, Moeller brings back Tyler Hutchinson, who hit .451 and had four home runs last season, and Ethan McAlpine, who hit .429 for the Crusaders in 2009.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

People should vote for levy

My name is Eva Pierce. I am a fourth-grader at Sharonville Elementary. I am writing this letter to tell why people should vote ‘yes’ for the Princeton City Schools bond levy to rebuild the middle school and high school. One reason to vote for the bond levy is it improves property values, so if you were selling a house you’d get more money for it. Another reason to vote is that in the middle school and high school, the hallways are tiny and narrow, so for them it’s not easy to get to their classrooms, and, trust me, I’ve been there before. The middle school and high school buildings are 50-years-old, so they don’t have modern technology like a SMART Board. For example, if I were a kid in the middle school that had assigned seats and in a particular

CH@TROOM March 24 question

What are your favorite Opening Day traditions? Do you plan to go this year? “Why go to an Opening Day parade, where I’ll be continuously subjected to some unknown local celebrity perched atop a giant corporate logo, surrounded by drunk, conservative, orthodox meatheads who all think they’re the center of the universe, only to wind up in a stadium plastered with corporate logo’s and full of drunk, conservative, orthodox meatheads who all think they’re the center of the universe, when I can stay home, watch it on TV without the drunk, conservative, orthodox meatheads, and limited commercial interruption?” N.A.B. “I can remember in the ‘70s that we used to listen to all of the Reds’ games on WLW, and although we never attended an Opening Day game, we did go to a lot of the home games. For some reason, we have pretty much lost interest in baseball – that’s probably a result of aging and the nasty stuff that is going on in the world that distracts us from some entertainment. But our Opening Day tradition was only to listen to the game, and enjoy it. Bring back Pedro Borbon, Davie Concepcion, Johnny Bench, Pete Rose, Joe Morgan, and all those guys and maybe we’ll get interested again!” B.B. “I always plant onion sets on Opening Day. It gets my vegetable garden going and growing. I usually go to the game, however this year I have Final Four tickets.” J.J. “We don’t have any Opening Day traditions which we follow. When Opening Day is here we know that the lazy hazy days of summer are not too far off!! Yea!!! Hope the Reds win the opener. That even makes the day sweeter.” M.E.N. “I do not plan to go to Opening

Also, if the school did try to install a SMART Board they would have to drill through the wall to install it. My sister said that there was a leak at the middle school. Leaks also lead to mold and some people are allergic to mold, and people could get ill from it. I could also lead to other health problems. Eva Pierce Maple Street Sharonville

Vote ‘yes’ in May

On May 4, the residents of Princeton City School District will be asked to approve two levies. Please realize that residents of this district have not been asked for any monies in 10 years. Out of 23 local school districts,

Princeton residents pay the lowest cost in taxes per $100,000. That has been a huge savings for you, but now we need your help, and that help is through your vote. I am sure that you have noticed a large number of districts in financial need. Princeton is no different, and our student population is diverse with expanding needs. Many families are choosing to educate their children here because of the innumerable activities, special services, proximity to other communities, jobs and entertainment. The bond levy approval seeks your approval to build new middle and high schools with low interest bonds that are available only until Dec. 31. The operation levy seeks your approval to maintain current operations as well as new infrastructures. Breakdown of costs with an

As a firm we celebrate by having our own company cookout and wearing red. I grill burgers, dogs, brats and metts the night before and everyone else brings in side items. We all dine together for lunch and at least one person keeps an ear on the game and supplies the rest of us with updates. Go Reds!” D.M.R. “Watching the parade and going to ‘Plum Street Cafe’ with my brother for pre-game beers. I did not score tickets this year so, no we will not be attending. Go Reds!” C.A.S. “I work downtown so it’s fun to watch the parade as it passes by. I watch the parade rain or shine.” S.J.P. “I worked downtown for many years and we always watched the parade. Don’t think I’ll make it this year.” B.N. “Years ago when the Reds played at Crosley Field we would go to the breweries in Over the Rhine all had free beer and cooked brats and metts in their parking lot. Then we made our way to the game usually sitting in the field seats in center field. All this is gone so I guess I will just have to watch television and reminisce.” L.S.

Students deserve healthy learning environment

The health and wellness of our children is a paramount impor-

tance. We support the Princeton City bond and levy to be voted May 4. This will provide a new middle/high school as well as a small permanent improvement levy. These schools are old and have major deficiencies. They are noncompliant with state standards in security systems and access for people with disabilities. The heating, cooling and electrical systems are inadequate. Old buildings contain cancer-causing asbestos. The timing will never be better. The cost will never be lower. Our children deserve a healthy living environment. The Sharonville Elementary School Wellness Committee Liz Buschur Rita Hart Carla Shroyer Barbara Stark Edward Theroux

Generally speaking Vistors to Cincinnati.com/ Evendale posted these comments to a story about General Electric Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Immelt saying Cincinnati’s major businesses should band together to create the kind of health-care clout that could lower costs, improve service and possibly be a national model for health reform. Immelt made the comnets during a speech in Loveland: “Immelt says, ‘My health care costs are growing between 9-12 percent every year ... and I don’t want to one day have to say I can’t hire in the U.S. because of high health care costs and not have done anything about it.’ They already have an internal goal to have 60 percent of employees outside of the U.S., he has said this in business meetings. Look at the new partnership in China with the people’s army Aviation Co. Man where are the investigative journalists? GE truly cares only about one thing, profit, everything they do is for a reason, to make more $.” RealCincinnatius “The only thing any business cares about is making money. That’s the whole point of being in business.” jbillery “Jeffery Immelt is either a paid henchman or a sincere moron. Who cares which? Why do we need a ‘business’ to solve our problems? Why does GE have a slave-like chokehold on its employees who can’t get health insurance outside of a shakedown operation where only those who work for the company can get it at a fair price and those with pre-existing conditions can’t get it at all? Why is someone who works for a corporation in a differenct pool than someone who wants to start a business? “It is time we tell the Immelts of the world to put it where the sun don’t shine.” RueHuchette “After spending a decade destroying hundreds of millions of shareholder value, employee retirement and the company’s image and market worth he says ‘government can’t fix the problem, business has to.’ Hopefully no business he is in charge of. He has already taken

away employee healthcare and formatted like a single payer government model health plan, like Obama wants, that will burden the very people who have had their 401Ks ruined and no pay raises over the last two years. All the while him and the companies executive staff have taken tens to hundreds of millions in salary and bonuses. What a joke. The very person who suggested employees to ‘voluntarily’ contribute to the companies bride fund for government officials. From the guy who has made it the goal of all employees to engage their congressmen, and the get the GE message out to get as much stimulus money as possible. The goal is to off shore as many jobs to China, Brazil, Turkey, etc ..., while breaking all unions.” greedyliars “There are only two things for certain, death and taxes but this is not quite true. Before death you are most likely going to get sick and spend thousands on healthcare, lose your job because you can’t work, go bankrupt then die. “We are the only developed nation with healthcare for profit system in the world and contrary to FOX News it’s not the best but by far the most expensive. “We are not a true democracy and never have been. Our founding fathers set up a system of government that continually improves the lives of the people despite the people because they believed the people are too easily persuaded. They oppose the things that actually help them and cry ‘Socialist,’ but they’ll collect Social Security, use Medicare even though the amount they paid into the system in a life time is a fraction of the amount paid out and they won’t bat an eye. “Immelt means well, but we need government healthcare reform for business to excel, otherwise start learning Chinese.” fhaze2

Moeller students give team an extra lift By Mark Chalifoux mchalifoux@communitypress.com

The Moeller High School basketball program produced yet another final four team and had another final appearance. Much has been said about the team’s stars, players like Griffin McKenzie, Charlie Byers, Alex Barlow and Josh Morelock. Not as much as been said for another crucial part of Moeller’s continued success, the raucous student section. Moeller sold more than 700 student tickets for the game, which is astonishing for a school with less than 900 students enrolled. “It speaks to what our school is about,” Moeller Athletic Director Barry Borman said. “We talk about the Moeller family and so many of our kids want to be a part of this experience. It speaks to the fact that they really feel a part of it and want to contribute in any way they can.” For Moeller students not on the team, that meant showing up as soon as the doors opened and screaming and cheering for most of the game. The student section has the traditional cheers but weaves in more creative chants. Against Mentor in the semifinals, the Moeller students wasted little time before chanting “Just like football,” in reference to a 45-7 Crusaders win over Mentor on the gridiron. The Moeller students also began chanting “We’ve got Jesus” to the public school Mentor. It’s difficult to know whether the stu-

organization and that it helps to have an all-male atmosphere. “It lets guys go crazier,” Suter said. As soon as those words came out of his mouth, the student section started chanting “Flip! Flip! Flip!”, almost as if to prove Suter’s point. Suter obliged the crowd with a not quite flawlessly executed flip. He said it was only the second time all season he performed the feat. The student section is policed by administrators to prevent profanity and unruliness, and Borman said he’s received countless remarks from people outside the school about Moeller’s crowds. “People are amazed at the support we bring to all of our events,” he said. “It’s not only true of us but of most of the schools in our league. I think we really exhibit that family spirit.” He said that support and the expectations for success have contributed to Moeller’s basketball tradition. Having such a strong student showing is certainly appreciated by the players. “It’s beautiful,” junior guard Charlie Byers said. “It was crazy. I like how our fans support us.” Junior Alex Barlow said players from past state final four teams sent him text messages, telling him to just enjoy the experience. “They said it would be one of the greatest basketball experiences of my life.” Senior guard Josh Morelock agreed. “The atmosphere was crazy, it helps get the adrenaline pumping,” he said after the semifinals win. “It was definitely the greatest basketball experience in my life.”

Moeller senior stands out in semis

By Mark Chalifoux

mchalifoux@communitypress.com

Much has been said about Moeller’s senior forward, 6-foot-9 inch Griffin McKenzie, but the Crusaders received a big boost this season from another senior starter – guard Josh Morelock. Morelock came up big several times for the Crusaders, but had no bigger game than his performance in the state semifinals over-

time win over Mentor. Morelock, a Sharonville resident, scored 17 points in the 66-59 Crusaders victory, his second-highest output of the season. “I’m always ready to take the shot if it’s there and I just let it go like I always do and it was falling for me,” he said. Head coach Carl Kremer called Morelock one of the smartest players the Crusaders have and several members of the media

praised the job Morelock did defensively in the game’s waning moments against Mentor’s all-state guard Cole Krizancic. He scored only 13 points in the loss, more than 12 below his average. “He was tough to stay in front of, but I didn’t go for his fakes and we got the job done,” Morelock said. Kremer said he was happy to see a senior put on a show like that on the big stage that is the state final four.

“He was fun to watch,” Kremer said. “He’s such a talented kid and he really let it go. All year when we’ve needed him, he’s come up for us and he’s a terrific player.” Morelock said it was tough for him to describe the feeling after the game. “It’s amazing,” he said after the win. “It’s my last chance to put it out there for my school so to be able to do that for my team is a great thing. I can’t even

describe it.” Kremer said he was happy for the entire Morelock family. “I’m ecstatic for him and for his family,” he said. “His parents have had to drive him around to practices and games for most of his career and for them to get to watch that moment and have that moment is special. I want every kid to leave here feeling they lived out a dream and he’ll have that for the rest of his life.”

Celebrating the destruction of a bully

Most of us, or our children, have at some time experienced being bullied. A bully seeks to intimidate, induce fear, taunt, or control someone considered weaker than they. What a relief it is when a bully is overcome or deposed. Death is a bully! All though our lives it elicits fear in us. Like a threatening vulture awaiting its time, the specter of death (death anxiety) sits on the branches of the tree of life. Its presence leads us to have unhealthy fears about dying, losing people we love, or being deprived of everything we enjoy and value. In fact, the fear of death paralyzes some people so much it can lead to an overcautious living of life

(life anxiety). “Why love anyone if someday I’ll lose them?” try Father Lou “Why to enter Guntzelman fully into Perspectives life if it will someday come to a screeching halt?” whispers fearful minds too afraid of the bully. A cartoon depicts the opening to a dark cave and a set of two eyes peering out of the darkness. The caption underneath says: “If you’re very careful today, nothing good or bad will happen to you.” The bottom line of Christianity is our faith in the

resurrection of Jesus Christ and the deposing of the bully Death. Paul states the audaciousness of our faith, “For if Christ did not rise, then your faith is futile and your sins have never been forgiven... and we, of all people, are the most to be pitied,” (1 Corinthians 15:17-19) Easter is the day we Christians celebrate Christ’s rising and his promise that we will rise, too. So we sing our Alleluias and celebrate. We take to heart the advice early Christians gave that it’s not right to be anything but joyful on Easter Day. We can go on fostering our fondest dreams of life and love, knowing our lives will eventually be transformed for the better and

forever. The funeral liturgy affirms: “In him rose from the dead, our own hope of resurrection dawned. And now, the sadness of death gives way to the bright promise of immortality.” Poet John O’Donohue echoes the same point: “Regardless of how we configure the eternal, the human heart continues to dream of a state of wholeness, a place where everything comes together, where loss is made good, where blindness will transform into vision, where damage will be made whole, where the clenched question will open in the house of surprise, where the travails of a life’s journey will enjoy a homecoming.” How timidly we state our triumphs and good health

by the superstition of knocking on wood. We knock because it allegedly drowns out our boast. We fear that it we enjoy life too much the dreaded bully will return and wreak havoc on us. It’s as though we find it dangerous to hope for too much. Scripture does not yield to such superstition. Since God destroyed the biggest bully of ours, death, scripture doesn’t knock on wood. It has no hesitation in announcing it loud and clear. In fact, scripture taunts the bully of Death that still frightens God’s people so much. It shouts: “Death is swallowed up in victory! “So where, O Death, is your victory? Where, O Death, is your sting?” (1 Corinthians

15:54-55) Furthermore, some people, such as the mystic poet Rilke, see Death being so totally vanquished it now serves us – almost as a friend. He writes, “Death is our friend precisely because it brings us into absolute and passionate presence with all that is here, that is natural, that is love. … This life always says Yes and No simultaneous. Death is the true Yea-sayer. It stands before eternity and says only: Yes.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@ communitypress.com or P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242.

Protect elderly parents against telemarketers h i m , “They got me to give them my credit card number and then I tried to call and Howard Ain cancel and Hey Howard! they said there’s no cancellation policy.” So Doug called the company himself, but was also told he couldn’t cancel without paying a substantial penalty – $699. The company sold Adrian six magazines for $49.90 a month for a total cost of nearly $1,000.

The company charged his father’s credit card before receiving a written confirmation from Adrian. Doug immediately disputed the charge and then canceled the credit card altogether to prevent any future charges. With no credit card to charge, the company next sent a bill to Adrian – a bill for nearly $155. Then the magazines started arriving. He received two issues of “Golf Digest” and one issue of “The Family Handyman.” Doug immediately called the publishers of these two magazines and said, “They were very upset about this.

s. ct ffe e

They have canceled the subscriptions.” Doug said the publishers told him they’ve received similar complaints about other such magazine sales firms and they try not to accept business from them. Doug said this is a lesson for everyone. “Go back and check their credit cards… and work

with your parents,” he said. Doug said his father not only didn’t sign anything for these magazines, he should never have been called by that telemarketer because he’s on the national Do Not Call Registry. The company in question has an “F” rating from the Better Business Bureau due to numerous complaints.

I called the company and was told his account is now canceled and he has a zero balance. Bottom line, despite laws designed to protect them, seniors can still end up signing up for items they neither want nor need. So it’s important for their children to keep an eye on things. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12. Write to him at 12 WKRC-TV, 1906 Highland Ave., Cincinnati 45219.

As the nation’s population continues to get older, it’s more important than ever for children to look after their elderly parents. A local man learned this after finding his father had ordered magazines he neither needs nor wants. Doug Herberger of Forest Park keeps watch on his father, Adrian, who is nearly 80 years old. In January, Doug checked the mail and saw something that disturbed him. “I found a letter from a company that said, ‘Here’s the magazine confirmation for the magazines you ordered,’ ” Doug said.

Egg hunts

• Montgomery Kiwanis Club is hosting its Easter Egg Hunt at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 3, at Montgomery Park,

Entertain with a parade of Easter recipes Remember the request for the San Antonio parish pizza recipe from Mike, a Glendale reader? This church, located at the corner of Queen City and White Street, has a long and storied history. I thought my chances were slim to none that I’d get such a recipe, considering it was from the 1960s. I should have known better, as two readers came through. Tony Caminiti, who had no association with the parish but who had the cookbook, and Terrie Evans, the sister of Buddy LaRosa who is a member of the parish and who told wonderful stories to me about the parish and this annual festival where the pizza making took place. “Buddy still brings bread in to bake every week and we sell it for $2 a loaf,� she told me. (I’m not surprised – Buddy is just that kind of caring person).

T h i s helps augment the p a r i s h ’s needs. I’m sharing the recipe but do know that Rita the dough Heikenfeld is a large Rita’s kitchen q u a n t i t y one. Feel free to use your own dough, or purchase it, and use the homemade topping. I wish those of you who celebrate Easter the best ever. I hope you have a day filled with family, friends and food. And whether your table is abundantly laid out or in a more meager fashion, remember that it’s not just about the food but who shares it with you, so if you have a neighbor or someone who may be alone, give them a call, send a card or better yet, invite them to share your blessings.

Ladies of the lot pizza

Ladies served it at the festival in the lot for the feast of St. Anthony (June 13)

Dough:

5 lbs. flour 1 â „4 cup salt 5 oz. sugar 8 oz. solid Crisco shortening (white) 3 oz. wet yeast (cake) or 2 oz. dry yeast 45 oz. water (warm) Favorite sauce and toppings Mix yeast, sugar and 2 cups of water together. Set aside until frothy, about 15 minutes. Mix flour with salt and make a well in the center, add shortening, yeast mixture and remaining water. Mix well. Let rise, knead dough and let rise again until doubled. Break off a piece of dough and spread in greased pan. Poke dents in dough with fingertips. This makes several doughs, depending on the size of the pizza pans. Top with any sauce and add favorite toppings.

Topping for one pizza

Be careful when you cook this, as it sputters up. Use a nonstick pan if you have it and lower heat so mixture doesn’t burn. 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 large can crushed tomatoes (Terrie says use 28-oz. size) 3 chopped garlic cloves (I would use large) Fresh basil chopped Fresh parsley chopped Grated Parmesan Cook olive oil, garlic, and tomatoes until liquid is reduced and mixture thickens. Spread over dough, sprinkle with fresh herbs and cheese. Bake pizza at 400 degrees or until golden brown. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is Macy’s certified culinary professional.

Northeast dem president meets lt. gov. candidate Brown Blue Ash Northeast Democratic Club President Julie Brook and nearly 50 other Democratic activists attended a reception for Judge Yvette McGee Brown, candidate for Ohio lieutenant governor and running mate of Gov. Ted Strickland, Feb. 19 at the offices of Manley Burke LPA. “Judge Brown is Ohio” Brook said, “100 percent Ohio educated, rising to prove that with strong family and educator support, and despite humble beginnings, when Ohio believes in you, you will succeed!” Brown is a lifelong resident of Columbus, Ohio, a

graduate of Ohio University and The Ohio State University College of Law. From

1993 to 2002 she was the first African-American and second woman to serve as Judge on the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas Division of Domestic Relations and Juvenile Court. In 2002, Brown retired from the court to create the Center for Child and Family Advocacy at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, where her team of 400 treats victims of child abuse and family violence. The center was a brainchild of Brown as a result of her personal experiences on court, and today helps countless numbers of people restore their lives. Brown’s program has

become a national model for integration of multi-disciplinary services for child abuse. While Judge Brown mentioned that she felt personally fulfilled with the work she does, when the Governor asked her to run, she was honored to accept. Brown serves on the boards of Ohio University, OSU Medical Center and various other charity boards. In 2008, she was inducted into the Ohio Women’s Hall of Fame. She is married to a Columbusarea high school teacher and together they have three children. Brook said that it was

electrifying to be included in the reception. “Judge Brown is amazingly dynamic. Both she and Gov. Strickland believe in Ohio and together they will serve our state well.” Brook went on to add that “...while news reports seem to state otherwise, I can attest to the fact that Ohio Democrats are more than ever unified in their support of our elected officials and our leadership. We are stronger and growing in numbers which is easily exemplified by the surge in membership of the Blue Ash Northeast Democratic Club.” BANDC meets regularly September through June at

7 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month at the Blue Ash Recreation Center, 4433 Cooper Road. Club members hail from several Northeast communities, including Blue Ash, Montgomery, Kenwood, Sharonville, Indian Hill, Evendale, Loveland, Sycamore Township, and Symmes Township. Members are encouraged to join the group for $25 per year, but meetings are always open to the public. For more information, contact the Blue Ash Northeast Democratic Club on Facebook or contact Julie Brook at blueashnortheastdemocraticclub@hotmail.com.

Bed & Breakfast

There is a joke among friends here, “It’s a Phoenix that has risen from the ashes. ”When Charles and Allison Hahn Sobieck purchased the property at 502 North Main Street (in Somerset, Kentucky), there was a lot of work to be done, to say the least. With the vision of a B & B and a home in ruins, there were little choices. The dilapidated structure was removed, then reconstructed as it had been in the 1850’s. It’s a brand new home. A bit of an unusual concept for a bed and breakfast. “We reconstructed the home from scratch. This gave us the benefit of designing every amenity possible along the way, ”said Allison Sobieck, owner. Every room is equipped with many amenities you don’t often find in a traditional bed and breakfast, but rather a fine hotel. Every room has a full sized closet with a pair of micro-fiber robes hanging in them, 400- count Egyptian cotton sheets, cable TV with DVD players, queen sized beds, and a host of other things. For instance, 2 rooms have gas fireplaces and 3 rooms have whirlpool tubs. We even offer many add on amenities such as massage, dinner, flowers, etc…

need the right seed starting supplies: 1) Use a soil-less potting mix or seed starting mix. This mix is extremely important as it actually helps to hold moisture for the new seedlings yet is airy and allows them to dry properly with less chance of dampening off, or rotting. Some mixes may include a slow release fertilizer to help feed the seedlings very

slowly and gently as they grow. Be sure to pre-moisten your potting mix before planting the seeds. Ron Wilson 2) SomeIn the thing to garden grow your seedlings in – small clay or plastic pots, Jiffy Cubes, peat pots, Cow Pots, or trays with cell packs are wonderful for starting your seeds. 3) Some type of shop light with regular fluorescent tubes will be needed to help supplement the muchneeded sunlight to keep your seedlings from stretching. Remember to keep the lights within 3 inches of the tops of the new seedlings. You may need to keep the lights on 12-14 hours a day, even in sunnier windows. 4) A misting bottle. This is one of the best ways to water your new seedlings, especially when they’re very young. Misting the soil is not so invasive and is easier to control the water flow. 5) A small inexpensive fan, and trust me, this fan is one of the key ingredients for starting seeds indoors. Placed away from the seedlings, it provides constant air movement around the plants, which helps reduce disease and rotting, and it also helps to promote stockier plants. And here’s the most important thing to remember: Read the back of the seed packs for additional germinating information (do the seeds need to be covered, spacing, soil temps – generally 70-75 degrees during the day, etc.?), as well as how long it takes for seed germination and growing time before transplanting outdoors. Count backwards from our frost free date (May 15 or so), and that’s when you should start those seeds indoors. For tomatoes it takes about 6 weeks (peppers 8 weeks), which means starting time would be right around late March/early April. Remember, it’s always better to start your seeds a little late, rather than way too early. Have fun growing your plants from seeds, indoors. Talk to you next time, in the garden.
