BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

County still pursuing 911 fees

Money needed to fund new system Gannett News Service

Hamilton County’s plan to add a monthly 911 fee to landlines and cell phones to fund a new emergency radio system died before state lawmakers saw it, but county officials are trying again. In an e-mail to Hamilton County municipalities, Hamilton County Administrator Christian Sigman wrote, “by no

means, have we concluded our efforts in this regard. We came very close to succeeding on this issue over a very short period of time; and we believe our prospects are even better in the next legislative session.” A new emergency radio system would cost about $10 million. County residents pay 25 cents for a wireless-line surcharge, and nothing for land lines. Under the new proposal, residents would pay $1.50 to $2

ABOUT THE FEE » Can be spent only on emergency 911 services, including staffing, the phone system, the radio system and capital improvements to the communication systems. » The fee can be set by county commissioners and Cincinnati City Council » The charge would apply to all communication devices with access to 911 services. That’s cellphones and every phone line.

Friends, neighbors, strangers pitch in after mom’s death Community helping dad, 12 children By Kelly McBride kmcbride@communitypress.com

Friends of a Sharonville woman who died unexpectedly, leaving 12 children without a mom, are trying to help the family. Melissa Kunkel, 41, died April 5, and while her husband, Tim, struggles with the loss of his wife, and maintaining a house full of children ages 2-17, Sharonville collected nonper-

ishable items April 11 at the Sharonville Community Center. “She didn’t feel well, and went upstairs to rest,” her friend Raquel Scott said. “She never woke up. “Now, this is a dad left home with 12 kids,” she said. “Anything we can do will hep him be able to do what he needs to do to be a dad to his kids.” See FRIENDS, Page A2

Springdale’s political districts will be redrawn for the upcoming November election. Springdale City Council has approved an ordinance to redefine four districts after a discrepancy in the number of registered voters exceeded 15 percent. City Administrator Derrick Parham said that based on the most recent general election numbers, if the political district with the largest number of registered voters exceeds by more than 15 percent the district with the smallest number of registered voters, the city has the option to redistrict. If the largest district exceeds the smallest district by 25 percent, the city is required to redistrict, Parham said. The last time Springdale drew political districts was in 1993. “Based upon the November 2012 number of registered Springdale voters in the various districts, the delta was approximately 22 percent,” Parham said. “Although Council was not required to redistrict, they felt is would be best to address the issue at this time.” A copy of the updated map can be found on the city website, www.springdale.org.

JoAnn and Rick Hartman at their Evendale Antiques shop where old-fashioned values equal good business practices. EVELYN PERKINS/FOR THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Antiques store an old-fashioned getaway You must visit the Evendale Antiques and Collectibles store, where you will find JoAnn and Rick Hartman, who are the neatest people with wonderful things for sale. They drive from their West Chester Township home to give expert advice and good value. JoAnn has come almost full Evelyn Perkins circle. Her maternal grandpar- COLUMNIST ents are from Sharonville; grandfather and uncles worked at the railroad there, and Grandma worked at the Sharonville YMCA. She and JoAnn’s mother, as well as Rick’s mom, collected antiques. At her grandmother’s home there were lamps from which hung crystal dingleberries that tinkled when you walked across the hardwood floors. The business evolved

from their love of being on the hunt for nice items at flea markets, estate and yard sales. JoAnn and Rick were constantly out shopping. Things began to accumulate, so a year ago they decided to open their own establishment. Neighbors gave generously; one gentleman contributed a cuckoo clock hand carved by his father. Five months later the doors opened for business. Rick says they enjoy meeting people, seeing what their needs are, and the search to fill those needs. Such personalized service is fun for them. Their son, Nick, is a bright light in his parents’ lives. He graduates from Moeller this year and will attend UC for engineering. Nick has a wonderful talent for making gorgeous Gothic jewelry, patiently and

meticulously crafted. You might see him at the business, as he comes in to help. Rick is from Dayton, KY, and was in the printing industry all his life. After retiring from the Cincinnati Enquirer, he worked at smaller companies. JoAnn retired from printing also, having worked in graphics doing typesetting and design for small businesses. She is still asked to design logos, and does the fliers and banners for their store. Both agree that they work more now than when toiling 10 hours a day in printing. They treasure life, so camping and fishing provide good relaxation. People come from near and far, “picking” for their own antique stores, homes or businesses such as diners. Others bring in items for consignment; the Hartmans will research them for the best market price.

Truck driven by suspected gunman found By Jennifer Edwards Baker jbaker@enquirer.com

Cincinnati Police have recovered a truck driven by the suspected gunman in a shooting in Sharonville Friday morning that left a woman in critical condition. Sharonville Police Lt. Mark Preuss said the

truck was empty and that suspect John Kelley, 32, was still at large late Friday. Kelley, aka Drew, was described as 6 feet 1 inch tall weighing 240 pounds. Police say he used a revolver in the offense and they believe he is still armed. Preuss did not say where the truck was found.

Shaundrell Foshee, of Middletown, 26, was found in the parking lot of the Travelodge, 11171 Dowlin Drive. A second victim, 20year-old Erick Davis of Cincinnati, was hit in the elbow and apparently made his way about a quarter-mile away to a UPS facility east of the motel. ■

Moeller academic team makes state

Moeller High School’s academic team qualified for state by winning the GCAL postseason tournament. “With a solid but unsatisfying regular season record of 6-3, the team was looking for redemption in the last league contest of the year,” said academic team moderator Mike Ward, a Moeller physics teacher. “The day started off with a 52-48 win over a very, very good Alter High School team. After beating Elder handily, the day culminated in a threeteam final match against bracket winners McAuley and

Purcell Marian High Schools. This match was one of the most exciting matches in recent memory. Down by four with 12 questions left in regulation play, the team came back to finish in a tie with McAuley. “In the five-question playoff, Moeller scored three to McAuley’s two to win by the closest possible margin. James “Tunisia” Gilliland pulled the team ahead and Jack “Matrix” Taylor sealed the deal. As always, Eric Lawhorn captained the team with confidence and precision. Evan Verrilli played a strong

contributing role. The team played exceptionally well as just that – a team.” Moeller’s academic team finished the regular season with a record of 10-3. “The team improved markedly through the year after losses to both Purcell Marian and McAuley earlier in the year,” Ward said. “Several parents commented about how well the team carried themselves and how well they represented Moeller.” Moeller will play in the regional competition Saturday, April 20.

Vikings, Cowboys play tough teams By Scott Springer and Nick Dudukovich sspringer@communitypress.com

The courts have been open for a few weeks for local tennis squads. The following is a recap of the boys squads in the TriCounty Press area:

Princeton

The Princeton High School Vikings are holding court competing in arguably the best tennis conference in the state. Six Greater Miami Conference teams, including No. 5 Princeton, were ranked in Cincinnati.com’s Division I preseason coaches’ poll. After finishing10-7 overall in 2012, coach Rob Caress likes the look of his squad. “We have mostly upperclassmen who have experience at the varsity level,” Caress said. “This group of young men are unselfish and understand the importance of team-oriented goals. They emphasize the concept of winning as a unit and do not value individual accomplishments over winning as a team.” At singles, Princeton will try and fill the void left by the graduation of Conner Nagel, who was first-team all-league as a senior. In his spot, Caress and company will rely on varsity returnees Matt Arroyo, who is a sophomore, and senior Jake Bent to play the first or second position. Senior Brian Hazen will try his hand at No. 3 singles, while seniors Sam Fickie and Henry Breidenbach hope to be a formidable tandem at first doubles.

Wyoming

The Cowboys were second behind Indian Hill in the Cincinnati Hills League last season and return two familiar names in Bourbon and Plattenburg. Mason Bourbon and Gustav

Plattenburg are a couple of years removed from high school, but their younger siblings are following their tradition. Myles Bourbon and Niklas Plattenburg were first and second team, respectively, last season in the CHL. Bourbon is now a sophomore and will be handling first singles for coach Ted Plattenburg. With the promotion to first singles, Plattenburg has been impressed with how Myles Bourbon has elevated his game. “He’s going to surprise some people this year,” Plattenburg said. “He’s 6-5 and a half, so he’s taller than his brother. He could be our big banger. He had a good match against Mason and pulled out a three-setter against Loveland.” Will Carter is also back for the Cowboys after making CHL second team as a freshman last spring. The Cowboys were 10th in the state as a team a year ago, so they return youthful experience. Plattenburg hopes to prepare them for another postseason run with an aggressive schedule. “We’re playing some of the big schools,” he said. “Mason ‘A’ beat us 5-0. We’re going to a tournament at Louisville St. Xavier. We’ll play a team out of Tennessee and a couple of teams from Kentucky and one from Dayton. You have to be OK to be invited there.” Plattenburg’s strategy is to let the Cowboys know they can play on the same level with the so-called “big schools.” “We’re a young team with no seniors, two juniors and the rest sophomore and freshmen,” Plattenburg said. “We’re a very deep team. I want my boys to understand the level of competition that they’re capable of.” The Cowboys have a few doubles scenarios, but one of the combinations is Jeremy Smuck-

er and Evan Emanuelson, both sophomores. “They’re just good buddies,” Plattenburg said. Niklas Plattenburg, a junior, rotates between singles and doubles and freshman Jay Klein is an interesting talent addition for the Cowboys. “He’s an outstanding soccer player,” Plattenburg said. “They lend him to us because he’s a great athlete. Every one of these kids understands they need to raise the level of their game and they’re responding very well.” The rest of the Cowboys are junior Michael Montgomery, sophomore Kiren Thomas and freshmen Nolan Morley and Chris Murray. Plattenburg’s right-hand assistant is Tom Tobias. Wyoming plays home matches at the Spring Valley Bank Courts adjacent to the high school. Their next contest is April 17 against Turpin.

Moeller

Alex Thompson picked up Greater Catholic League Coach of the Year honors for guiding the Crusaders to a second-place finish in the GCL-South. Moeller was 4-2 in the league typically dominated by St. Xavier and 10-8 overall. Returning starters are seniors Logan Wacker, Brett Carlin and Mike McGrath and junior Kevin Morrison. Seniors Jack Sherman and Toby Frisch are also expected to contribute. Wacker was second team GCL-South last season and will help the Crusaders seek a thirdstraight winning season. “The team this year is a fun team with a lot of good senior leadership,” Thompson said. Rounding out the Moeller squad are Nick Schaeffer, Brendan Farlow and Bruno Rozzi. Moeller is at Loveland April 18 and then back home with Seven Hills on April 19.

SHARONVILLE — At Princeton High School a relatively new roster will try and keep the program’s momentum going after last year’s squad finished with a10-10 mark in 2012. Last season marked the first time a Princeton team had finished .500 since the 2005 squad went 9-9. Despite such a big roster turnover, coach Tamette Duckworth is shooting to be in the top half of the Greater Miami Conference. The Vikings have one returnee in Nick Cocco, who’s the only player with varsity experience. Cocco had been an outside hitter, but switched to setter this year because of the team’s needs. “He’s doing really well with it,” Duckworth said. Through April 9, Cocco had 46 assists in 10 games. Duckworth also hopes to get strong contributions from outside hitters/middle blockers Darius Hilson and Ryan Bricking. The Vikings also get some foreign aid, with the addition of Mateo and Marco Zarli, who are from Italy and attending Princeton while their father works for General Electric, according to Duckworth. The Vikings are 1-2, and earned their first win against Edgewood April 2. As the season progresses, Duckworth is hopeful the team can continue to build. “We had such little practice and now there are games every day,” she said. “We’re going to play something like 20 games in four weeks, so it’s important to keep building each game.”

Roger Bacon

Expectations are high at Roger Bacon as the boys volleyball team seeks to replicate the success of a season ago, when the squad played in the Division II state title game. That team lost to Alter in the championship match, and this year’s version of the Spartans will feature a lot of new faces, but Goller is still optimistic. “(Expectations) are always high. We’ve got a high standard at Bacon and we hope to continue that tradition with the guys we have this year,” he said. The core of the squad features senior returnees Erik Edwards and Matt Brichler, along with sophomore Bobby Wilking. Edwards leads the GCL Central with 77 kills in 26 games (through April 11), while Wilking is second in the conference with 59 digs, according to GCLsports.com. Fresh faces looking to

make an impact include junior Jake Bottom, Max Bishop, Stephen Post and sophomore Alex Brenner. Brenner and Bishop have played a vital role in setting up scoring opportunities and have combined for 183 assists through April 10. The squad is off to 4-5 start, and while the Goller and company were disappointed with a four-game loss to Fenwick April 9, the coach likes his team’s attitude. “…They are still very driven and they are not complacent and there’s no hangover from last year,” Goller said.

Moeller

Matt McLaughlin has a tough act to follow after winning the Ohio Division I state championship in boys volleyball in his first season as head coach at his alma mater. Now with five year’s coaching experience and in his second campaign, he returns a team that finished 25-2 and 10-0 in the Greater Catholic League-South. Four starters return for the Crusaders and they’re all seniors. Playing the middle is 6foot-6 Casey Pieper, 6-foot-2 Tony Pisciotta is an outside hitter, Zach Priest is a 6-foot right hitter and 5-foot-9 Jared Engelhart is the libero. “This is a really talented, hard-working group of seniors,” McLaughlin said. “They have worked in the offseason to improve and are ready to get going this season.” McLaughlin won GCLSouth Coach of the Year honors last spring and Casey Pieper was picked first team. Priest made second team allleague. The rest of the squad is comprised of seniors Rudy Forte, Corey Carroll, Mitchell Sander, Bobby Schantz, Ryan Sheets, Sam Geraci and Adam Brinkman; juniors Ben Land, Greg Partin, Danny Abein, Corey Pieper and Carson Susich; and sophomore Chris Hackman.

CH@TROOM April 10 question

NEXT QUESTION

A federal judge ruled April 5 that age restrictions on over-the-counter sales of the morning-after pill must end within 30 days. Should there be age restrictions on the morning-after pill? Why or why not?”

“If you are old enough to say yes to the boy you are old enough to have second thoughts. How many of you parents want to be raising your children’s babies? “This is nothing about morals. It is about bringing unwanted and poorly cared for children into the world. A girl should have some choice other than an abortion.” F.S.D.

“There is no age restriction on having sex, so why should there be an age restriction on the morningafter pill. “Until these kids, both male and female, understand about sex, responsibility, and commitment, whether they use the pill or not, we all must pay the consequences of raising their kids and supporting them through some agency.” D.J.

“No age restriction. With any medication sold over-the-counter there is always potential for abuse and overuse. However, it was repeatedly noted that the side effects are not very significant. “There has been a lot of research that’s been done that indicates teens can follow the instructions for this medicine. That said, when it comes to any form of birth control it’s important for women/girls to educate themselves on the benefits and

risks of taking hormone medication, and the best way to do that is to speak with a parent, doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.” K.S.

“Should there be restrictions on the sale of the morning-after pill? Yes, but society is changing, and I am not sure that these restrictions will continue to be observed. “There are restrictions on the ages of people who want to buy cigarettes and alcohol; why not the pill? I think the answer is that the liberals among us want to remove all restrictions and stigmas on sexual activity of any kind by anyone, and they appear to be succeeding.” Bill B.

“One has to wonder why some judge, somewhere in America believes he has the power to order every last pharmacy in this great and vast land to obey his command. Even the president and Congress have no such power. “If a pharmacy disobeys the judge will he dispatch Storm Troopers to the scene?” R.V.

Simple yeast roll recipe is great for beginners Mother Nature is letting me know that spring is really here. Looking out my kitchen window into the woods, I see trees budding out and the forsythia is in bloom. That tells me the ground and air are warmer, about 50 degrees or so. My husband Frank got the garden plowed and also plowed gardens for our neighbors, so everyone is eager to start planting. We got most of our root veggies planted, including potatoes, radishes and onions. The salad greens are already Rita popping Heikenfeld up, as are RITA’S KITCHEN the peas. I worked in my herb garden for days hoeing out the chickweed, which is in fact a winter annual. I gave as much to the chickens as they would eat, and I also put some in our salads. Chickweed contains calcium, zinc, iron, vitamins A and C and some B vitamins. Plus it’s an appetite suppressant! Our ancestors happily picked chickweed and dandelion leaves to replace vitamins and minerals lost during a meager winter

diet devoid of fresh greens. As long as you have a positive identification and the plants are “clean," enjoy them while they are young and tender.

Simple yeast rolls

I was trying to make rolls similar to the Hawaiian sweet yeast rolls that you buy. I didn’t quite make it texture wise, but the taste is similar. If you’re new to baking or intimidated by it, try these. I think you’ll be pleased with results. I’m using fast/rapid rise yeast here, not regular yeast. 21⁄4cups flour ⁄4cup sugar 1 package (1⁄4oz.) fast/rapid rise/quick-rise yeast 1 ⁄2teaspoon salt 3 ⁄4cup warm water (120-130 degrees) 3 tablespoons butter, melted, plus extra for brushing on rolls 1

Combine 11⁄2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Add water and 3 tablespoons butter and beat on medium speed until smooth, a few minutes. Blend in rest of flour to form soft dough. Knead a few minutes. This makes dough smooth and develops gluten for texture. (Bless the dough by making a cross with your hand. It’s

a way to thank the Lord for your abundant blessings). Cover, let rest for 10 minutes. Roll to a 1 ⁄2-inch thick or so, cut with biscuit cutter or glass. You’ll get nine circles of dough if you use a 21⁄2-inch biscuit cutter. Place 2 inches apart on sprayed cookie sheet. Brush with butter. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 40-50 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 and bake until light golden, about 11-15 minutes. Brush with butter.

Yeast 101

Regular yeast: For the most part, this needs to be proofed in warm water (105-115 degrees) for several minutes until it starts to foam. Fast/rapid rise/quick yeast: A more aggressive strain that can be mixed in with dry ingredients. It also tolerates higher heat. Step by step photos for rolls: Check out my blog.

ton reader, told me she had asked one of Kroger’s deli employees a couple years ago about the spread and was told it contained just shredded Jarlsberg, mayo and red onion. Andre, another reader, forwarded his version and I’m sharing that today. He said he and others in his family agree “it is just as good as store bought." Andre grates the cheese with the Cuisinart grating blade. He chops the onion fine (about a 1/4 inch) by

Rey of Light, a scholarship benefit for students, will shine at DePaul Cristo Rey High School Saturday, April 27. This gala evening will begin at 6 p.m. in the DPCR Student Center and include dinner as well as silent and oral auctions. Rey of Light is presented by the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, the SC Ministry Foundation, and Susie & John Lame/Lenox Wealth Management.. Two community leaders who have been strong supporters of DePaul Cristo Rey from its inception are serving as the honorary co-chairs: Sister Joan Elizabeth Cook, SC, president of the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, and Rev. Eric Knapp, SJ, pastor of St. Xavier Church in downtown Cincinnati. There will be more than 150 items available for bid through the silent auction which opens at 6 p.m. The oral auction will begin after dinner with

bidding on more than 25 valuable gifts and packages including a Reds box package for 12; an Cook Umbrian dinner for six prepared by DPCR president Sister Jeanne Bessette; a Broadway Knapp in Cincinnati package for “Flashdance, the Musical;” and a week’s stay in a restored 1880s sea captain’s cottage on Prince Edward Island. For reservations or more information on Rey of Light, contact Development Director Sparkle Worley at 513-861-0600 or sparkle.worley@depaulcristorey.org. DePaul Cristo Rey is an affordable, Catholic, college preparatory high school for underserved students. It is sponsored

by the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati and is one of 25 schools in the national Cristo Rey Network which serves 7,400 urban young people who live in communities with limited education options. Most of the students qualify for the Federal Free or Reduced Lunch Program. All DPCR students participate in the Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP) to help finance a portion of their education costs. However as a new school which serves only those families who can’t afford other private, college-preparatory schools, the cost to educate students far outweighs their CWSP earnings. Rey of Light supports the scholarships that enable students from economically challenged families to afford this nationally recognized dualfocus educational program now offered in Cincinnati at DPCR and not available at any other local high school.

Photos draw picture of World War II By Kelly McBride

kmcbride@communitypress.com

Exotic landscapes and hidden bunkers, church ruins and a Nazi museum have created a picture of World War II that was captured through photos. Those photos will be part of a Sharon Woods Travel Series presentation by Blue Ash resident Neal Jeffries Friday, April 19. “These pictures show the beautiful English Channel Islands which were the only part of the UK occupied by the Nazis during WW II,” Jeffries said. “They also show the Normandy Beaches where the allies invaded to begin to change the tide of war, and also show some of today’s reminders of those awesome times. His trip included a stop at the Island of Jersey, one of the Channel Islands occupied by Germany for five years, until the May
