Fundraiser is wheel deal By Kelly McBride Reddy

The path to victory was a mile long, and Ben Derge rode it 38 times. Wyoming’s wheel-a-thon brought out about 130 children and their parents on a recent Saturday, despite the unseasonable cold. Riding the loop through the Wyoming neighborhood kept them warm as they raised funds for their schools and awareness of bike safety. Funds raised by the Parent School Association are used for equipment and programs throughout the district. Two prizes are awarded each year at the wheel-a-thon. The student fund-raiser who rides the most miles receives two tickets to Kings Island. The student who raises the most money gets an indoor waterpark party at the Powel Crosley YMCA. Ben Derge, a fifth-grader at Wyoming Middle School, rode 38 miles, the most ever ridden in the wheel-a-thon, which dates back at least 15 years. Winners are announced at the May Fete event May 20.

Mike Derge stands above the crowd during the wheel-a-thon fund-raiser in Wyoming. Knoebber organized the event for the Parent School Association, along with the Wyoming Police Department. “We have no course without the police,” Knoebber said. “It’s a safety and fitness-oriented fund raiser for the Wyoming schools. “The best part it that it gets a lot of students outside, riding miles and miles, and interacting with the police.” “The police department’s par-

ticipation in the Wyoming WheelA-Thon is a great opportunity for our police officers to share some good bike safety tips with the kids while allowing the kids to get to know the police officers who keep them safe,” Wyoming Police Chief Gary Baldauf said. Four members of the department worked the three-hour event, patrolling the route, blocking off roads from traffic and fitting kids with bike helmets. Sgt. Mike World and officers Sean Feldhaus, John McGillis and Mitch Murphy also registered bikes and offered bike safety tips.


For more photos from the event, see page A3 “It’s a good opportunity to remind kids of bicycle safety and the importance of wearing helmets,” Feldhaus said. Harry Powers, 8, was fitted with a new helmet, and he filled out a registration form for his new bicycle. “I like it,” he said of the wheela-thon. “I got to see my friends and I got to ride my new bike.”

Viewing schedule

Sharonville City Council held its first videotaped meeting May 11, but residents likely won’t be able to view it due to audio difficulties. Microphones didn’t pick up the voices of half of the dais, though technicians from Intercommunity Cable Regulatory Commission, which tapes the meetings, said that will be fixed by the next meeting May 25. Council voted on no ordinances or resolutions, though several committees presented reports. Among them: • Councilman Kerry Rabe reported on the Department of Building and Planning. Permit fees collected in April were down compared to last year, but Rabe said deposits to that point for 2010 were even with those made in 2009. April deposits totaled $11,608, he said. • Rabe also reported on Convention Center activity, where 26 organizations held events in April,

Paving began work on Mosteller Road April 22, restricting the street to one lane north and south. Curbs are bring removed and then replaced over a three-to-four week period. Driveways to businesses along Mosteller Road will not be blocked, Pugh said. • Police officers participated in firearms training at the Butler County/West Chester Township range in April, according to Councilman Rob Tankersley. Officers received training in high-stress physical situations, he reported. Officer Cheryl Baarlaer was selected as Police Officer of the Year, and clerk Jennifer Setters received the Civilian Employee of the Year from coworkers in the police department.

• The fire department has been working to flush the city’s 842 hydrants. Work is expected to be completed by the end of May, Tankersley reported. The fire department also reported that many of the hydrants are failing and need to be rebuilt. The cost to rebuild is at least $400 per hydrant. Tankersley reported that the department had spent $12,000 on repairs as of April. He said the city had saved more than $1,750 in labor costs by having city crews repair 10 hydrants in April. • Councilwoman Vicki Hoppe reported that the Parks and Recreation Department will hold several programs and events in May. They include a program on antiques, the annual mom prom, the city’s garage sale and swim lesson signups. For more information, call 563-2895. • Councilman Ed Cunningham reported that the Sharonville Chamber of Commerce will hold a business connection luncheon May 20. Creators of the Super Bowl-winning Doritos ad will speak at the event.

It might have been a record-setting day in Finneytown May 8. A count of 235 people entered the new empty pool at Powel Crosley Jr. YMCA and danced to “YMCA” in an attempt to set a Guinness World Record. The dancing was a promotion for the new pool, scheduled to open May 22. The record will be for having the most people participate in singing the Village People hit song from the 1970s while in a swimming pool. John Bloomstrom, of Bloomstrom Marketing Advisors, did some research and determined no one has that record. “I just want to have fun,” Bloomstrom said before the attempt. The participants climbed down a ladder into the pool shoeless – so as not to mar the paint – and lined up in the shallow end. Behind them were a combination of band members from Finneytown, Winton Woods and Wyoming high schools. They provided the music under the direction of Rick Canter, band director at Finneytown High School. There were even two lifeguards with floatation devices just in case. The new pool will be a 50 meters by 25 yards. The Y will have four pools – with a combined 800,000 gallons of water capacity. “This lets us offer more aquatic programs,” Bloomstrom said. “It will give the members more options.” A video of the event will be sent to Guinness in England, and posted on YouTube. If the Y wants to try again it will be a wet try. The pool was scheduled to be filled last week.

BRIEFLY The Society of Historic Sharonville is now in its 21st year. Located at the intersection of Creek and Main in downtown Sharonville, the Society of Historic Sharonville is also home to a museum containing many interesting exhibits and a railroad diorama. Although admission to the museum is absolutely free, donations are always gladly accepted. The museum is an ideal place for local, regional, state

and even national research. With the local branches of the Public Library of Hamilton County and Greater Cincinnati sending much of the geneological research materials back to the main office in downtown Cincinnati, the central location of the SHS offers visitors easy access to materials. The publication of The Sharonville Cookbook in 2007 was a success and copies of the 200-plus recipe book are still available for only $9. Stop in at the museum for a copy

or drop by Nancy’s Hallmark in Sharonville or the Sharonville Recreation Center on Thornview Drive. Plans are under way for an updated history book on the Sharonville environs. New research has revealed that past publications contained inconsistencies with the later findings. The use of computer enhanced imagery has also allowed the SHS to view older photographs and many objects are now visible that once were not. All SHS photographs have been digitally

stored and available for copy for a nominal charge. The museum is open every Sunday from noon to 3 p.m. and other hours by appointment. For more information please contact SHS President and Museum curator Darrin Upp, 563-9756, or email

Project catapults lesson in physics By Kelly McBride Reddy


Brian Hazen, Henry Breidenbach and Mac Bosel launch from their catapult, which was built using a mouse trap and hinge springs on a wooden base.


In the name of learning, one Princeton teacher was willing to risk egg on his face. Students at Princeton High School recently built catapults designed to propel an egg at least five meters. Some were successful, others fell a bit short, but all of the students learned about physics, as well as some engineering. The lesson included kinetic energy transferred to the egg, elastic potential energy, Newton’s Third Law, tension and projectile motion. It was all wrapped up in a catapult that sent an egg flying into the air, aimed at a target decorated with a photo of the teacher’s face. Jasmine Smith used a spring to propel her egg, which traveled 5.1 meters. “I learned that elastic and kinetic energy helped our catapult,” Smith said. Physics teacher Chris Anderson said the students were given three weeks to design and build their cata-

pults. They couldn’t use electricity or other types of motors, and it couldn’t weigh more than 4.5 pounds. “They couldn’t make a huge apparatus,” Anderson said. “They had to get the most bang for their buck.” Though Jada Pollard’s egg only travel 1.7 meters, she learned what went wrong. “We used PVC pipe to downsize,” she said. “We should have kept the (larger) size and it would have gone farther. We also learned about angles, to help it to go farther.” Katelyn Snelling used a basic design, with wood, nails and a hinged arm with bungee cords. Her team’s device catapulted the egg the required five meters on test day. “The more tension there was, the farther it went,” she said. Five meters or not, the students agreed that it was a fun way to learn. “It’s creative,” Katelyn Snelling said the project, which included a written lab report. “We get to interact with our peers and you get to have fun while being in science class.”


Students had fun learning physics through a project in which they built a catapult to propel an egg at a target decorated with a photo of their teacher’s face.

Motorists urged to use caution on wet roads With the snow and ice of another Cincinnati winter behind us, many drivers take road conditions for granted. However, rain and wet roads contribute to nearly a million crashes nationwide annually, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, many of which are preventable if only motorists understood the distinction between driving on wet versus dry roads. “The biggest difference between driving on wet roads is the amount of available traction, which affects the handling and reaction of your vehicle,” said New Driver Car Control Clinic’s district manager Ed Haines. “Drivers don’t take into consideration how a vehicle is going to react differently due to road conditions.” What can drivers do to stay safe on the roads during and after a downpour? • Slow down: allow more travel time if needed. When you drive slowly, a greater amount of your tire’s tread will be on the road, resulting in better traction. Additionally, try to drive at a steady pace and avoid jerky movements when braking, accelerating, or turning. • Exercise extreme caution after a long dry spell. Over time, engine oil and grease build up on the road when the weather is dry. When mixed with water from the rain, the road becomes extremely slick. As the rain continues the oil will wash away, but the first few hours can be the most

dangerous. • Drive toward the middle of the road. Most of America’s roads are crowned in the middle, which means that the water will run off to the sides. Keeping your car in the middle of the road will help to avoid deep standing puddles. • Turn on your headlights. In light rain and in gloomy, foggy, or overcast conditions, this will help you to help you see the road and help other drivers see you. • Brake earlier and with reduced force. This action increases the stopping distance between you and the car in front of you and lets the driver behind you know that you are slowing down. Better yet, take your foot off the accelerator to slow down. • Maintain the proper following distance. It takes up to three times longer to stop on wet roads. This is true even if your tires are good-quality wet-weather tires. So don’t tailgate, and be alert for brake lights on the car in front of you. We have heard of the two-second following rule: this needs to be increased in wet weather because a stopping suddenly on a wet road is one of the leading causes of crashes. Keeping the appropriate distance will also help you avoid the tire spray from vehicles ahead of you, which can reduce vision. • Stay on top of your car’s condition. Regularly check brakes, tire pressures, tire tread depth, windshield wipers and defroster operation so that you are not

caught unprepared. • Avoid driving through puddles and standing water. Not only could there be a suspension- or tire-damaging pothole hiding underneath, just a small amount of water can cause serious damage to a modern vehicle’s electrical system. If you do drive through water, it is recommended that you tap the breaks to remove the water from the car’s rotors. • Hydroplaning is a common cause of crashes and skidding in wet weather. This occurs when the water in front of the tires builds up faster than the vehicle’s weight can push it out of the way. The water pressure causes the vehicle to rise up and glide across the water’s surface. At this point, the tires can be completely out of contact with the road and in danger of skidding or drifting out of the lane. If this happens, the driver should take his or her foot off the gas pedal without braking excessively, according to Haines. Less speed means the tires will have less water to deal with and the car will eventually regain contact with the road. Additionally, turn the steering wheel in the direction of the skid. As you recover control, gently straighten the wheels into the direction that you want to go. Although wet roads will affect your ability to drive safely, following these tips will make you much more likely to arrive at your destination safely and without incident.

Princeton squads perform at GMC meet By Tony Meale

The Princeton High School track teams performed in the Greater Miami Conference Championship championships May 12 and May 14. The girls’ team, which totaled 88 points, finished third behind Sycamore (90) and Mason (170). The boys’ team, which totaled 45 points, finished eighth; Mason (176), Middletown (84) and Colerain (70) finished first through third, respectively. The Lady Vikings, which hoped to finish second at the GMC meet, have four top-three finishes this season. They placed second at the Colerain Invitational and won invitationals at Winton Woods and Princeton.

“Overall, we’ve had a really good year,” girls’ head coach Amanda Robinson said. “This is the strongest year of my three years here.” The Lady Vikings have been led by returning statequalifiers Jocelyn Spells and Claudia Saunders. Spells, a junior, is the reigning GMC Track Athlete of the Year and excels in the 200 and 400. She also leads multiple relay teams. The Lady Vikings won the 4x200 and 4x400 relays at the GMC meet in times of 1:43.73 and 3:57.68, respectively. “She’s doing exactly what she did last year,” Robinson said. Saunders, who as a freshman finished third at state in the 300 hurdles (42.65) and seventh in the 100 hurdles (14.81), has

Princeton sophomore Azariah Heard performs in the preliminaries of the 100 at the GMC track meet May 12. Heard advanced to the finals in the 100 and 200, winning both events in times of 10.98 and 21.83, respectively.


Princeton High School sophomore Claudia Saunders runs in the preliminaries of the 100 hurdles at the Greater Miami Conference track meet at Mason May 12. Saunders advanced to the finals in the 100 and 300 hurdles, winning both events in times of 14.73 and and 43.04, respectively. won both events at the GMC meet in times of 43.04 and 14.73, respectively. “She’s starting to really improve in the hurdles,” Robinson said. Saunders also added the pole vault to her repertoire and already set a school record by clearing 10 feet. Jada Grant, meanwhile, has also performed well in the hurdles, recording times of 15.19 and 46.46 in the 100 and 300, respectively. She is also the anchor of the 4x400 relay team. “She runs one of the smartest anchor legs I’ve ever seen,” Robinson said. Nicole Donnelly, Leah Nguyen and Taylor McCullough have also shown to be versatile contributors. “This is a very mentally tough team,” Robinson said. “They come to practice every day ready to work. They don’t hesitate to step up their game, and they’re ready to put in the effort.” Robinson acknowledged her team’s weaknesses in the throwing and distance events but has seen her team’s overall numbers double from approximately 25 to 50 in one year.

The boys’ team, meanwhile, hasn’t been as potent as compared to previous seasons. The Vikings won a three-team invitational against Western Brown and Reynoldsburg early in the season, but don’t have any other top-two finishes to speak of. “We’ve mainly been middle-of-the-pack,” head coach Jim Crumpler said. The Vikings’ most valuable performer has been sophomore Azariah Heard, who finished first at the GMC meet in the 100 and 200 in times of 10.98 and 21.83, respectively; he’s also played a pivotal role in Princeton’s relay teams. “Azariah’s been consistent all year,” Crumpler said. ‘He’s very impressive.” Steven Seay specializes in the 400 and 800 but missed two weeks of action due to shin splints – “He’s hoping to finish the year strong,” Crumpler said – while Sam Heaton and Jacob Rutz man the 1,600 and 3,200. The top field performer has been freshman Marc Ferguson, who specializes in the shot put and discus.

“He’s very coachable,” Crumpler said. Crumpler said he would’ve considered a topfive finish at the league meet quite an accomplishment. “The kids who are good have done a good job. The problem is, we don’t have a lot of them,” he said. “There aren’t a lot of upperclassmen on the team, and when you’re talking about freshman and sophomores running against juniors and seniors, there’s a big difference physically.” Crumpler said Princeton’s incoming freshman class is teeming with talent. “In terms of getting back to where we were, we’re a couple of years away,” Crumpler said. “But we’ll get there.” Both Princeton squads will perform in the district tournament at Mason May 19 and 21. The Vikings with the best odds of making state, Crumpler said, are Heard, Seay and Heaton, while Robinson hopes to send multiple relays and expects Saunders and Spells to qualify as individuals.

Wyoming has several standouts on the track By Mark Chalifoux

The Wyoming High School track and field team is young, but head coach Cornell Munlin said he thinks the team has strong potential. “We have a couple seniors but overall we don’t have a lot of track experience,” he said. “On the girls’ side we have mostly freshmen and sophomores so we need them to learn that track can be just as big as the other sports they play.” Munlin said a strong finish at the district meet and beyond would help build enthusiasm for the program in the offseason and get the team even more focused for next season. He also said having a good showing at

the league meet is important because that helps build school pride. The girls’ team is led by the 4x100-meter relay, which qualified for the state meet in 2009. Michelle Jolson, Nikki Mckee, Allanah Jackson and Bethany Gorby are on that relay. Gorby is also a standout hurdler for Wyoming. Tess Thorenson is back and is a major contributor and the team has some strong newcomers as well. Kayla Livingston, Sammy Schwartz, Gabrielle Curry and Cynthia Reinecke have all steadily improved this season for Wyoming. Alex Jordan is a talented thrower for Wyoming. Emily Stites is a sophomore distance runner who has already set school records in the mile and the

2-mile and could make it through to the state meet. “She’s a critical part of our team’s success,” Munlin said. The boys’ team doesn’t have as much depth as the girls, but there are some standouts for the Cowboys. Wyoming is led by a senior leader in Oliver Jawwaad. “He’s really come into his self at the right time,” Munlin said. Clifford Ngong is back and is a strong middle distance runner for Wyoming. Seth Gold and Patrick Ammerman are standout distance runners and Nick Weeg is doing well in the discus, along with Nick Burns. “They have really stepped up for us,” Munlin said. With the district meet


Wyoming sophomore Seth Gold competes in the boys’ 3,200 meter run at the Cincinnati Hills League track championships at Finneytown Friday, May 14. Gold finished second in the event. The Wyoming boys finished sixth at the meet. around the corner, Munlin said Wyoming has a few kids that could make some noise in the postseason.

“We have some athletic girls and with the relays, anything can happen,” he said. “The girls have some options with the relays so hopefully we’ll be able to get a few of them through. The boys could have some qualifiers as well if they run well at districts.” Munlin also praised the leadership from Jawwaad. “He’s one of the best I’ve had,” Munlin said. “He works hard and is a great leader and gets the most out of his abilities. He keeps the team’s enthusiasm and motivation up, and that’s a testament of him and where he’s come from.” “I know it’s a cliché, but if you wanted to look up a senior leader in the dictionary, you’d see a picture of Oliver Jawwaad,” Munlin said.

Too much Pepper?

Vistors to posted these comments to a story about Hamilton County Commissioner David Pepper’s proposal to cap the county’s income tax credit at either $133,000 or $153,000 of a home’s value: “Sounds like an incentive for the assessor to raise the appraisal bar! Anyone propose spending cuts?” ViewFromTheEast “Would the last person to leave Hamilton County please turn off the lights?” NewportJeff “Those bad ol’ rich people. Make them pay for everything ... at least until they are taxed out of the rich bracket.” knowitall1000 “I’m a democrat and I don’t even own a home, and even I think that’s unfair. Totally unfair. Those in higher income brackets are already subject to higher taxes. Why would we double tax them making them pay higher taxes on their properties? Isn’t David Pepper a

Republican? Or does he just hate Hamilton County? An initiative like this would simply force people to move to the surrounding counties.” cindywho “Didn’t politicians at the time promise the real estate tax incentive to encourage property owners to vote for the sales tax increase to fund the stadiums? So now these commissioners can just stick it to the property owners without a vote? If so, these guys have definitely earned their own ‘term limits!’ Every property owner in the county should vote them out at the first chance to do so.” sportssenseguy “Lots of fair points here. However, since one of the only other legitimate ways to raise the revenue needed for the ongoing demands of ‘downtown Hamilton County’ and its projects is to eliminate the sales tax credit entirely, perhaps this is a short term solution that needs to be given consideration. “With the pending reevaluation due on all properties in 2011, if all properties have generally suffered a decline, then those at the bottom of the assessed values will be required to pay more because the entire ‘value of the

CH@TROOM May 12 questions

Were you surprised by Tea Party founder Mike Wilson’s victory in the Republican primary for 28th House District? Why do you think he won? “I am reminded of Jean Schmidt’s first primary victory for the Second Congressional District in a large field including two who were much better known to voters. They, however, each viewed the other as their chief rival and besmirched and befouled, each other leaving Jean with her dedicated Right-To-Life coterie to win the day undoubtedly with some help from those thoroughly disgusted by the campaign of the supposed leaders. I am not accusing Wilson’s opponents of mudslinging, only pointing out that in a primary that has little else to draw voters a relatively small but dedicated following can prevail. The trick for Wilson will be how well he is able to fare against the intelligent, highly capable, hardworking Pillich.” A.M.B. “I continue to be amazed that the Tea Party which supposedly is dedicated to the overhaul of our government consistently seeks to align itself with the GOP, which has heretofore been steadfast in opposing all change and has consistently been a champion the status quo. Go figure!” J.B.

“I’m not surprised at all that Mike Wilson won the Republican primary. The first time I heard him speak was at a rally at Fountain Square a little over a year ago. He was a businessman so distraught over the burden big government was placing on business entrepreneurs he started the Cincinnati Tea Party to do something about it. I remember thinking, ‘Now, there’s a guy with the courage of his convictions.’ And I liked his convictions. Apparently a lot of other people liked them, too, because the crowd was huge and they were cheering at just about everything he said. “I was so glad when he decided to run for office. As a volunteer on his campaign I was able to observe that he didn’t just work

What are your memories of your high school prom? “Not very pleasant. I was a skinny kid from a poor family in a small town, in a small parochial high school, and I wasn’t a jock, nor was I particularly good with girls. So I didn’t really plan to go to the prom. “However, the nun in charge of these things decided that she was going to assemble all the boys and girls who didn’t have prom dates in the gym, have them face each other, and pick a date. “It’s been too many years, so I can’t remember if we were just to pick the girl across from us or not, but I think that’s what it was. “My date is now a nun herself.” B.B. “I didn’t go – the whole formal dance concept just didn’t appeal to me.

Since many folks at that end of the scale probably don’t benefit from itemized deductions like the higher value end of the scale, this just might be a ‘righting of previous wrongs’ in permitting the higher end values a disproportionate share of the sales tax credit.” groat “Butler, Warren and Clermont counties will all support Pepper’s proposal.” SeawayPlayboy “Geez. My home isn’t in one of those ranges, but my property taxes went up $1,200 a year because of their reassessment so I wonder how much the houses in that price range already went up due to reassessment and now they want to tax them more? Haven’t we learned from New Jersey yet? Most of New Jersey’s high earners moved out of the state due to taxes now they are in a world of hurt ...

Inspite of higher taxes the owner’s wealth increases at a higher rate than tax increases. It’s a good plan, Mr. Pepper. “It’s rather ironic that the conservative opponents are among the same group that created this unaffordable stadium tax in the first place. Pepper, Portune and now Hartman have inherited a mess left behind by former commissioners just like President Obama inherited the mess left behind by the former administration.” CincyTom “Typical liberal Democratic response to a problem. Let’s raise taxes on the ‘rich.’ Of course ‘rich’ in this case appears to be 40 percent of homeowners.

Princeton’s eyes sharply focused on the future This column is a bit about looking back, and a lot about looking forward. Above all, I’m looking forward to seeing our new high school and middle school spring to life, bringing with them all the educational opportunities our kids deserve. For that, the entire Princeton family is grateful to our voters who saw the value in our bond and levy campaign. On May 4, our issue passed with 58 percent of the vote. We carried every one of our core communities and the overwhelming majority of our 33 voting precincts. That’s an amazing feat for a school district these days. It’s humbling. Looking back at the last three months – the period between our board of education’s decision in January and the May 4 election – it was an exhilarating time. I met with the public dozens of times, each presentation culminating in a Q&A session that was always lively and insightful. Folks get straight-talk and they appreciate transparency. That’s what I’ve learned in a 39-year career in education, including the last 20 as a superintendent in four states. The stakes were high. We’d already cut $3 million from next

year’s staffing budget. If voters had rejected our bond and levy program, we would have had to cut another $3 million in people. Our staff Gary Pack understood that. Community They appreciate and Press guest straight-talk t r a n s p a r e n c y, columnist too. Now, about looking forward … • I look forward to continuing to express Princeton’s gratitude to our taxpayers. We are stewards of their money and I take that responsibility very seriously. You might have noticed a quarter-page ad in this edition, a message of thanks to voters from our school board. I share that view. It was paid entirely with campaign funds, no taxpayer money was used. • I look forward to again acknowledging publicly the tireless efforts of our campaign volunteers, and the thoughtful way our board considered whether to go on the ballot, and when. They’re a credit to this district:

President Lillian Hawkins, Vice President Steve Moore, and members Tawana Lynn Keels, Sandy Leach and Bob Maine. • I look forward to the building process. We’re now engaged with bonding agents, the first step. Princeton’s AA-plus bond rating is going to be a huge advantage for our taxpayers. Only two other public school districts, out of 613 in Ohio, have a rating as high as Princeton’s. We will begin the design work and planning this summer and fall, and plan to be on site with construction by mid 2011. • I look forward to seeing you. Our new building will have public-use facilities such as a pool and auditorium. One more thought about looking back: I am confident that the 300 or so Princeton High School seniors who voted May 4 will look back and fully appreciate the civic responsibility of voting. Voting is special. Just ask someone who lives in a country where you can’t. Dr. Gary Pack has been the superintendent at Princeton Schools since 2008. He and his wife, Jackie, live in Sharonville. They have three grown children.

Sandtrese Keys, left, and Sharon Coleman create candy bouquets at Simply Sweet Boutique in Glendale.

Second career is sweet adventure By Kelly McBride Reddy

A new business is blooming in Glendale as Simply Sweet Boutique has opened on West Sharon Road. Co-owners Sharon Coleman and Sandtrese Keys are former employees of GE Capital who lost their jobs last year in a layoff at the company. “After 15 years of working for someone else, we decided to go into business for ourselves,” Keys said. After about a year of preparation, the franchise of Candy Bouquet International has opened for business. Keys and Coleman said choosing the candy bouquet business was a natural outgrowth of activities they have been involved in for years. Coleman, a former analyst, and Keys, a former reporting specialist, organized community events and parties on the side. “We always had a passion for crafts,” Keys said. The business partners said Glendale seemed to be a natural fit for the shop, which specializes in gourmet candy and ganache.

The site of their new business was previously a candy store called Cincinnati Candy Distributor, which closed more than a decade ago. “Kids who used to come here years ago are now bringing their nieces and nephews, and their own kids in,” Keys said. To recognize Glendale’s mascot, the black squirrel, Simply Sweet Boutique sells squirrel nut chews, as well as the nostalgic Lemonheads and crystal rock candy.

Musical director Victoria Hurd congratulates the Vermont Avenue Elementary School third-graders who sang, played flutes and made their own pictures of the state flag hanging around their necks. I wasn’t sure anyone outside of Wyoming knew of the Vermont Avenue Elementary School, but I was wrong. Alice Dimond called me, full of enthusiasm for the May 11 thirdgrade musical. Alice and husband, Harold, have lived in Evendale 40 years. They introduced me to their friend, Sandy Gans, who came all the way from the Hyde Park/Oakley area to attend. The class and their wonderful musical director made the tip worthwhile. Foot tapping, knee patting, humming and hand clapping from the audience accompanied each song. Hopefully, Alice and Harold will let me write their story one day. His family immigrated from Russia 100 years ago, and hers is from the Portuguese Azores Islands. I loved listening to Alice talk about their grandchildren. Cute as buttons, the students put on a show that spilled over with talent. They entered the gym to the sounds of automobile engines, because this was, after all, a musical trip by car across the USA. We were treated to “Michael Row the Boat Ashore” and “Amazing Grace” played on flutes. The performers covered every state and many cities in their lyrical medley. There was even a song about the seven continents. Can you name the 50 states?

Well, these thirdgraders sang them alphabetically. We saw the USA in our Chevrolets, were carried back to Old Virginia, walked to New Orleans and heard Evelyn about a gal in KalamaPerkins zoo. Susanna was told Community not to cry, Kansas City Press was alerted that they were coming and we columnist traveled Route 66 from Chicago to LA. “Nothing Could be Finer than to be in Carolina” sung in double time brought down the house. And, a thirdgrade Elvis impersonator singing “Viva Las Vegas” was a hit, too. The theme songs from “WKRP in Cincinnati,” Drew Cary’s “Cleveland Rocks” and “Beautiful Ohio” were just great. I was so busy looking at the artwork hanging around the children’s necks, at first I didn’t notice their shirts were red, white or blue like the American flag. It was amazing that these students remembered the words to that many songs. Whom do we have to thank for putting us on the “Chattanooga Choo Choo” with flutes mimicking the sound of a train leaving the station? Under the direction of the exquisite

Victoria Hurd, 42 children made you know you haven’t missed a thing if you haven’t been to The Great White Way. Broadway, eat your heart out! Victoria is in her third year at Vermont School. She has been teaching music since 1991, and her love for music and teaching is so apparent. The program was only about one hour long, but it takes many, many hours to teach 42 youngsters 53 songs, and feature 26 solos. You have to love it to do it. Originally from Iowa, Victoria spent four years abroad with the International School of Music. She was in Japan for three years and in Luxembourg for a year. We are so lucky to have her here. She plays by ear, and that innate talent lends a special aspect that allows her to segue seamlessly into many different tunes. When she walked in with the children, I commented to Alice how good it was to see a tall woman in high heels. Statuesque, Victoria had on gorgeous shoes that reminded me of a 1940s Joan Crawford movie. They were spectacular, and so was she.

Tips on raised bed gardening Raised beds are without doubt the first step toward having a more productive home garden … and more control over the quality of your family's fresh food. Currently there is rapidly expanding interest in home gardens to enable you to “know and grow your own food.” With a raised bed you control every facet of what goes into it, avoiding contaminants and unnatural fertilizers, and encouraging natural ripening of the garden-to-plate vegetables you

grow. Some of the advantages of raised beds over inground garare: Juliann dens • The soil Gardner warms up One Small faster in the Garden spring and stays warm longer in the fall, thus lengthening your growing season. • You can fill your bed

with a great balanced soil mixture to ensure high production from your choice of veggies. • Greater moisture retention is a major plus, and planting can be dense. • The walls of your raised bed prevent both the washing away of seeds and the invasion by unwanted nearby weeds. • Maintaining the garden is done from outside the bed, which avoids compacting the soil around your plants' roots.

• You can sit on the edge of your bed for relaxed, back-saving gardening.

Envy is as common as love or anger

Envy is a little bacteria living within us. It can remain small and cause minimal trouble or spread and poison the whole person. Envy and resentment can even be a cause of international or national conflict. Poorer nations may feel it toward wealthier ones, or one race or religion toward another. Psychoanalysts consider envy in making their analysis because it can be an underlying factor in relationship problems between spouses, parents, siblings, and friends. Envy is a difficult emotion to identify and integrate. “Envy is so shameful a passion that we never dare acknowledge it,” says La Rochefoucauld. After decades of hearing individuals’ confessions, I could count on one hand the people who ever mentioned envy as a personal sin of theirs. Jealousy is often mistaken for envy. They’re not the same. Jealousy is mainly concerned about love. The jealous person fears losing someone they love to a rival.

Whereas envy is the pain felt when another is perceived as possessing Father Lou some perGuntzelman so boj e nc t ,, Perspectives quality, or status that one does not have. Webster’s dictionary defines envy as “the painful or resentful awareness of an advantage enjoyed by another joined with a desire to possess the same advantage,” to which some psychologists would add, “and often the desire to destroy the one perceived as possessing that advantage.” What are some examples of envy? It is possible to churn with envy when we perceive another as more successful, better-looking, more popular, wealthier, having a better body or youthful age, having a very desirable spouse, an influential job, higher social status, or be favored by a parent or boss, and the beat goes on. A woman so envied her sister that the predominant

motive in her life was not doing what she really enjoyed, but doing things to overtake her sister. A sports-minded man was resentful of certain athletes and their well-developed bodies. He even rejoiced when they were injured or publicly embarrassed (schadenfreude in German, “taking pleasure in others’ misfortunes”). Usually the envied person does nothing to deserve the envy of another. He or she is not responsible for the envious person’s perceived lack of the envied quality. In fact, the envied person may possess the quality because they worked hard to achieve it. To try and understand our perplexing emotion of envy, we need to see how it stems from our human desire for fulfillment. In “Urgings Of The Heart,” authors Au and Cannon offer helpful insights: “Whenever we perceive something to be a good, we are attracted to it. We feel a desire to be close to it or possess it … Envy is intrinsically related to goodness. What we each come to value and desire as good is determined by our unique

personality. “What is desirable to one person may not be so to another. Envy enters our hearts when we despair of ever receiving the good things we desire… and our despair becomes fertile soil for envy, which flourishes whenever hope is lacking.” Looked at spiritually, envy represents a refusal to accept one’s humaness and limitations.

way, whether remembering a fallen veteran, family or friends. The cornbread salad recipe is one of my most requested for this holiday, so here it is, in time for you to put it on the menu.

Cornbread salad for Memorial Day

One that’s worth the calories. Don’t be put off by the long list of ingredients. It’s easy to make.


I enjoy starting out Memorial Day with my family, going to Mass at St. Philomena church in Clermont County. It’s an outdoor mass, weather permitting. Afterwards, there’s a gun salute to the fallen veterans. We visit my parents’ graves and put vases of fresh flowers on them. The grandkids help me plant sprigs of Mom’s heirloom mint. It’s a meaningful tradition. I know many of you celebrate Memorial Day this

Prepare cornbread according to package directions but stir in chilies, cumin, oregano. Pour into sprayed 8-inch pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool. Combine mayonnaise, sour cream and dressing mix; set aside. Crumble half the cornbread into a 13-by-9 pan. Layer with half of the rest of the ingredients and repeat layers, ending with cheese. Cover and refrigerate for two hours or more. Serves 10 to 12.

Alandra’s wasabi-mayo dip with asparagus

Alandra is my friend, Ruth Ann Parchman’s daughter-in-law. Alandra

shared this recipe in a family cookbook Ruth Ann published. Wasabi is Japanese horseradish.

2-3 pounds thin to medium asparagus, trimmed and blanched

Whisk together until sugar dissolves:

1 cup mayonnaise 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon soy sauce 11⁄2 teaspoons sugar 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice 2 teaspoons wasabi paste Serve asparagus with dip. Good with snap peas.

Roasted sweet rhubarb topping

I got enough rhubarb stalks from the garden to make my all-time favorite topping. Rhubarb is called “pie plant” because most folks make a rhubarb and strawberry pie with it. Rhubarb is good for our skeletal system. It contains anti-bacterial and anti-cancer properties, so it’s good to eat when in season. It’s really sour, though, so some sweetener is necessary. 1 pound rhubarb Zest and juice of an orange 1 ⁄3 to 1⁄2 generous cup sugar or equivalent Shake of cinnamon (optional but good) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut rhubarb into chunks. Toss with zest, orange and sugar. Put in small baking dish, cover

with foil and roast 20 minutes. Remove foil and roast until the juices get a bit syrupy. Add cinnamon. Serve hot, warm, room temperature or chilled on scones, or as a topping for cake and ice cream. Tip from Rita: Only the stalks of rhubarb are edible, not the leaves.

Sticky caramel glaze and chopped pecans with caramel icing and more pecans. It was flat, not risen.” Her husband used to drive from Crestview Hills to Newport on Saturday mornings just to buy these. Like Ruby Tuesday’s avocado ranch dressing. For Wendy McDonald, a Norwood reader. “They discontinued it and won’t share the recipe.”

Tips from readers

• Batavia reader Debbie Moffatt offers this tip for Rita’s oven-fried french fries. “We prepare them in a similar manner by parboiling the potatoes first. I want to pass on that I use my apple slicer to make the wedges and cut the ‘core’ circle in half lengthwise,” she said. • Saurbraten gravy – in response to Mrs. Ratterman’s request for darker sauerbraten gravy.

Reader J o h n Augustin Rita has a Heikenfeld Dayton Rita’s kitchen Art Institute cookbook recipe that uses gingersnaps for thickening and he says the gravy is dark. John has made it and declares it “delicious.” He’ll share if Mrs. Ratterman wants it. Reader Mary DeFoe suggests browning the flour in the skillet. “Takes about 20 minutes of careful watching and stirring.” Mount Lookout reader Tom Heitkamp says he tracked down a recipe from

Sauerbraten gravy 1

⁄4 cup butter 1 tablespoon sugar 1 ⁄4 cup flour Approximately 1 sauerbraten marinade (left after cooking meat) 1 cup red wine In a large saucepan, heat the butter, add the sugar and enough flour to produce a thick roux. Stir constantly and let the flour darken as much as possible without burning. Slowly add the marinade, stirring. Add the wine and simmer, stirring, until the sauce has the thickness of heavy cream. Strain the mixture through a very fine sieve and keep warm. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is Macy’s certified culinary professional. Email columns@community with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line.

Safe swimming emphasized as summer nears The week before Memorial Day is National Recreational Water Illness Prevention Week and Hamilton County Public Health wants everyone to be aware of healthy swimming behaviors, particularly ways to prevent recreational water illnesses. Germs are spread by swallowing or having contact with contaminated water in swimming pools, water parks, hot tubs, interactive fountains, water play areas, lakes, rivers or oceans. Swimmers can become

infected with recreation water illnesses by swallowing, breathing or having contact with contaminated water from swimming pools. Swimmers who are ill may contaminate the water, posing a health risk for the healthy swimmers in the pool. Chlorine kills most germs over time, but some germs can survive in chlorinated water up to several days. These healthy swimming behaviors are important to remember this summer: 1. Do not swim and don’t allow children to swim

when experiencing diarrhea. 2. Don’t swallow the pool water and try to avoid getting any in your mouth. 3. Practice good hygiene. Shower before swimming and wash your hands after using the toilet or changing diapers. 4. Take children on bathroom breaks or change diapers often. 5. Change diapers in a bathroom, not poolside.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND ACTIVITIES AT Princeton citizens spoke loudly May 4th for the future of children and for our community. The overwhelming passage of Issue 6 will bring hundreds of jobs to Princeton and guarantee that present and future generations of our young people have up-to-date facilities for learning.

Railway Art exhibit by the prominent nationally known artist Margaret Mailly. Her works have been displayed all over the country. Friday May 28 through Monday May 31 – Community Center 9-4pm

In the months to come, we will continue to keep you, our citizens, totally informed as the project progresses. At first, there will be few visible signs as architects do their behind-the-scenes design work. But once that important task is completed in about a year, the excitement of seeing new buildings grow from the ground up will be felt by every Princeton stakeholder.

Saturday May 29 – Community Center 1-1:30pm

We want to thank the hundreds of volunteers who worked so hard for passage of Issue 6. Your commitment to children was evident from Day One of this positive campaign.

Saturday May 29 – Community Center 3-3:30pm

Above all, we thank you, the voters of Princeton. In these difficult economic times, you understood that further delay would cost taxpayers millions more down the road. In a few years, the wisdom of that decision will be self-evident.

Benefit breakfast gives donations, hope

NEWSMAKERS Wyoming attorney honored

The Wellness Community hosted the inaugural Giving Hope Breakfast, welcoming approximately 150 guests to Xavier Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cintas Center. The message of the morning was The Wellness Communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment that â&#x20AC;&#x153;no one should face cancer aloneâ&#x20AC;? and guests learned more about how the non-profit cancer agency works to provide professional programs of support, education and hope for people with cancer, caregivers, and cancer survivors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all at no cost to participants. Local 12 WKRC reporter Jeff Hirsch, a cancer survivor, was the emcee for the event. Guests heard inspiring firsthand accounts from Arlene and Ed Murphy of Milford and Bob Murden of Mariemont about the positive impact The Wellness Community has had on their familiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; individual cancer journeys.

Founding board president and trustee emeritus Harry Davidow provided additional insight about the history and mission of TWC, which was founded in California in 1982, and introduced in Cincinnati in 1990 by his late sister, Lynn Stern, and Sherry Weathers. TWC Executive Director Rick Bryan of Blue Ash shared more details about the many types of programs offered each month at TWC locations in Blue Ash and Fort Wright as well as offsite outreach locations. Participants can choose to attend support groups, networking groups, educational workshops, mind/body classes such as yoga and Tai Chi, cooking classes, and social gatherings. Importantly, there is never a fee to participate thanks to the generosity of individuals, companies, foundations, and the profits of Legacies, the upscale consignment shop

in Hyde Park Plaza that carries home furnishings and accessories. Just before the breakfast concluded, Bill Krul, a past president of TWCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board, provided guests an opportunity to contribute to The Wellness Community and $22,500 was raised. Planning for the successful event was led by co-

chairs Ginger Kelly, Dolores Rehn, Judy Short, and Tom Young. Plans are already underway for a 2nd annual Giving Hope breakfast in 2011. For more information about The Wellness Community, call 791-4060 or 859-331-5568, or visit
