Hair today, there tomorrow

Glendale salon sending clippings, nylons to Gulf By Kelly McBride

Bright ideas

Protecting seniors

As millions of Americans age, the elderly population becomes more susceptible to abuse and less capable of protecting themselves. Becky Schulte, director of public relations for Maple Knoll Village in Springdale, said it’s important to advocate for the elderly. SEE STORY, A2

Statements Salon in Glendale has made a sweeping effort to help with the oil spill clean-up in the Gulf of Mexico. As part of a program that utilizes hair’s absorbency to soak up the oil spill, the clippings are being swept up, boxed and sent to a warehouse in Louisiana, where the hair will be packaged into booms and placed in the water. Salon owner Pam Brooks has signed up with Matter of Trust, a San Fransisco-based nonprofit, which has been leading the effort. The booms are made of women’s hosiery, as tubes to soak up the oil. “Your hair collects oil from your scalp, so why not crude oil, too?” the group asks on its website. Brooks said it took two weeks of about 30 haircuts a day to fill an eight-inch deep, 18-inch square box with hair clippings. She is holding on to the clippings, however, because the charity has temporarily stopped accepting delivery due to an abundance of donations. Now, Matter of Trust is asking for nylons to encase the hair. To meet that need, Brooks is holding a special event at her shop June 26. The shop will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and clients will be seen without appointment. Those who bring in new, or clean used pantyhose will receive a $20 discount off the usual $35 haircut for women.

“Who would have thought that people would try to clog a drain with hair. Usually they try to unclog the drain from hair.”

Lynette Martin Statements Salon client

Men’s cuts will cost $10 and children’s will be $8. The $15 cut includes a sample product of shampoo, as well. Client Lynette Martin said she’s impressed with the concept, and thinks “it’s great” that Brooks is taking the time and effort to help with the cleanup. “Who would have thought that people would try to clog a drain with hair?” she said. “Usually they try to unclog the drain from hair.” She said she will help by donating nylons to the salon. Brooks said she’s happy to do her part in helping clean up the BP oil spill. “If everybody does something little, it adds up,” she said. She said she’ll continue to collect hair and hose “as long as they need it.” “It’s a sacrifice,” she said, “but sacrifice was never meant to be easy. “The pictures along on TV are heart-wrenching,” Brooks said of her incentive to help. “I can’t imagine the suffering in the fishing industry, oil industry and the environmental impact.” she said. “So we can get started clearing up the mess that’s already there.”

Glendale adds curbside recycling to trash service By Kelly McBride

Miles to go

Crossing the North American Continent by bicycle is usually a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, but starting in midJune of this year Tom Moffitt, a 1967 graduate of Reading High School, will crank the 4,250 miles all over again for multiple sclerosis. SEE STORY, A4

Glendale residents will have the opportunity to recycle more conveniently as the village incorporates curbside service in addition to its rear-door trash pick-up. Village council has opted for service through Rumpke after receiving bids from competitors that offered curbside recycling, but not the rear-door trash service currently offered to residents. Councilman William Aronstein said the competition had brought a bid from Rumpke that would cost the village an additional $7,000 for the recycling service. Village Administrator Walter Cordes said that the increase in recycling would make the village eligible for rebates that would total at least $7,000. Aronstein said Glendale could have realized additional savings through curbside trash pick-up. “But the overwhelming sentiment within the village is that residents want to continue rear-door collection,” he said.


Mayor Joseph Hubbard, right, swears in Glendale firefighters Cody Haag, left, and Jeff King. “The appearance of no cans at the curb is nicer than cans at the curb,” he said. Each resident will receive a 65-gallon wheeled container for the recycled material, but Aronstein reminded residents that it must be placed at the curb each week for pick up. During the June council meeting: • A report from the Wine Beer and Food Festival showed $39,000 in sales, mostly through wine and beer tickets. Production costs came to about $35,000, so

the village netted about $4,000 in the firstever festival. The village took responsibility for police protection and trash removal, as well. Council, after lengthy discussion, passed an ordinance approving overtime for Chief Dave Warman for his shift at the festival. Other members of the police department, as well as other village employees, had already been paid since they are hourly workers. Warman is a salaried employee. Despite the small income from the three-day event, council agreed that the festival was a success. “We wanted to show the village to others, and we did it,” Mayor Joseph Hubbard said. “We wanted to have something for residents to come to, and they did.” • Hubbard also administered an oath to incoming firefighters Cody Haag and Jeff King. A third firefighter, Edward Hess Jr., was not present. “My career goal is to be a professional firefighter,” said King, as he joined Glendale’s volunteer department. Haag said he was working toward becoming a medic as well.

Maple Knoll program to bring awareness of abuse against elderly By Kelly McBride

As millions of Americans age, the elderly population becomes more susceptible to abuse and less capable of protecting themselves. To raise awareness, the Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration on Aging designated June 15 as Elder Abuse Awareness Day. Becky Schulte, director of public relations for Maple Knoll Village in Springdale, said it’s important to advocate for the elderly. “They might not be able to be a voice for themselves,” Schulte said. “If they’re in their

house alone, who’s going to be their advocate?” To mark the need for awareness, Maple Knoll will host the screening of a documentary film called “An Age for Justice: Confronting Elder Abuse in America.” Liz Libby, community liaison for Maple Knoll, said the event, from 11 a.m. to noon June 24 at the Sycamore Senior Center, is free and open to the public. “We’re hoping to start some dialogue and help someone find their voice, whether they’re in denial or just don’t know where to turn,” Libby said. “As the population is aging, reports to adult protective services will be increasing,” she

said. Libby said that the National Council on Aging reported that 90 percent of abuse to the elderly is committed by family members. Of that number, about two-thirds are adult children or spouses of the elderly victim. “Everyone deserves dignity and respect,” Schulte said. “Even as we age, and we can’t do things like we used to.” On its website, the Administration on Aging summarizes the importance of the day. “It serves as a call to action for individuals, organizations and communities to raise awareness about elder abuse, neglect and exploitation.”


Elder Abuse Awareness Day is an opportunity to reach out to the elderly and become aware of elder abuse, neglect and exploitation.

As the summer season blooms, Sharonville officials have seen growth in the number of violations due to tall grass. Councilman Greg Pugh reported that the Public Works Department has been overwhelmed with the number of grass violations. Grass and other vegetation is considered in violation when it exceeds eight inches tall, according to Sharonville ordinance.

As of June, Public Works has cut grass at 13 properties, compared to nine during the entire previous year. The city has sent invoices to those residents in violation of the tall grass code, Pugh reported. During the June 8 meeting, council heard a report on progress at the Convention Center, as the city continues to make efforts to attract business while work begins on the expansion of the facility. The report stated that reservations are being coordinated with Megan Construction so the project can move forward while guests

Moffitt trekking USA on bicycle … again Crossing the North American Continent by bicycle is usually a once in a lifetime adventure, but starting in mid-June of this year Tom Moffitt, a 1967 graduate of Reading High School, will crank the 4,250 miles all over again for multiple sclerosis. This time he will join his biking friend Herman “Sandy” Sanders, owner of Butler County Lumber in Hamilton. Moffitt, who served as Evendale Elementary School prinicpal from 1996 to 2001 and later as the Princeton School District’s assistant superintendent for personnel until 2008, says he agreed to the second trip after learning from his friend that a coast to coast trip was on his “bucket list.”

Follow the rider

Tom Moffitt will be filing reports and photos from his trip. Check and the Tri-County Press for updates. Moffitt and Sanders met each other after Tom’s first cross country trip in 2001. Since then, the two have ridden thousands of miles together mostly in southern Indiana and Ohio. When asked why he is riding again to raise funds for multiple sclerosis, a disease that seriously impacts the mobility of thousands of people each year, Moffitt said, “I have worked with individuals with MS and have many friends and their families who were hurt by this devastating disease of

the central nervous system. I’ve been biking for MS for 20 years and in this 21st season I hope to see it become only a memory in the medical books like polio became several decades ago!” Moffitt added that riding a bicycle an average of 80 miles a day for 56 days requires a huge “why” and clearly multiple sclerosis answers that question extremely well for him. “I have been blessed with the physical abilities to ride a bicycle for long distances at a time,” Moffitt said, “and even with an artificial knee this time, knowing I am helping those with MS through this adventure, makes those long days on the road all worthwhile.” Sanders and Moffitt will fly to for Everett, Wash., June 18 and over the next nine weeks will bicycle cross Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ontario, Canada, New York, New Hampshire, Vermont and

In preparation for the trip, both men in their sixties will put approximately 1,000 miles on their road bikes before leaving for the State of Washington. Their bicycles are well designed road bikes, one a Softride and the other a Trek, each with 27 gears meant to ease the climbs across the Rockies and the Appalachian Mountains while also allowing them to cruise along at 20-plus miles an hour on the long stretches of flat roads in the plains of Washington and deserts of South Dakota. In 2001 Moffitt raised $6,000 for Ohio Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. His goal for this year is $10,000. Charitable donations have been lower for such organizations in this economy so Tom is hoping that such a huge adventure will help him to garner more money for MS. For 38 years Moffitt

St. X class gives record gift of $41K to scholarship Gannett News Service The late Matt James, one of the nation’s top college football recruits, wore No. 78 on his jersey at St. Xavier High School. During the graduation ceremony for the school’s class of 2010, James’ classmates presented a record gift of $41,516.78 to the school for the Matthew James Endowment Scholarship. It had been established by the James family after Matt James’ death. “I don’t think the 78 cents at the end of that total was a coincidence,” said St. X development director Tony Schad. James, an offensive lineman who was going to attend the University of Notre Dame on a football scholarship, died when he fell from a hotel balcony while on spring break, April 2, in Panama City, Fla. Graduating classes since 1981 have presented St. Xavier with a gift. Initially, the money went for such needs as a new flagpole, though the gifts evolved to a contribution to the school’s annual fund. That fund provides money to student families to help pay tuition, which was about $11,000 for the 2009-10 year. “It’s a way for the guys to give back, to help future students get the same education they got,” said Mark Motz, St. X class of 1987 and the school’s director of communications and publications. A committee of 75 students from the 2010 class’ 378 members solicited classmates and received donations from 97 percent of graduates. The 2009 class made a gift of $27,000. A small group of 2010 graduates presented a ceremonial check to administrators during the graduation at Xavier University’s Cintas Center.

Wyoming boys lax picks up first playoff win

By Mark Chalifoux

The Wyoming boys lacrosse team finished the season with a 9-7 record, but reached an important milestone in the program as the Cowboys won their first playoff game with a 20-2 drubbing of Miami Valley. The team narrowly lost, by one goal, to Turpin in the second round. “It was an exciting game,” head coach Keith Hughes said of the Turpin game. “We were down by four goals early, but rallied and were up by one in the fourth quarter. We eventually lost in overtime but it was a really good game.”

Hughes said he was very pleased with what he saw from the team this season, especially as the Cowboys had to deal with a considerable amount of adversity this season. The team had to deal with the death of a classmate and with numerous injury problems to starters. “We had a lot of injuries we don’t normally have to deal with but our younger guys really stepped up and played well,” Hughes said. Standout junior James Edwards, one of the team captains, missed the first three games with a hip injury and another kid missed most of the season with mono. Senior Matt


Sophomore attackman Austin Hughes circles the goal during the Cowboys’ first round lacrosse playoff game against Miami Valley. Hughes led the team to a 20-2 victory with five goals and four assists.

Ames, a midfielder, struggled with an ankle injury at times. Several other kids had nagging injuries that forced them to miss a game here and there. The team was led in scoring by sophomore Austin Hughes, who had 48 goals. Senior Tyler Hughes, who also missed a few games to injury, finished second on the team in scoring. Sophomore defender Harrison Wood is another player that had to step up for the Cowboys, along with sophomore David Zanoni at attack. One of the highlights in the regular season for the Cowboys was a narrow 7-6 loss to Indian Hill. “They beat us by seven or eight goals last year and that’s a big rivalry for our schools,” Hughes said. “That game gave our guys a lot of confidence that they could play with anyone in the region.” Next season, the Cowboys will have to do a bit of rebuilding to replace a stellar senior class. Still, Wyoming will have some talented players in the mix. Goaltender Michael Sagan will be back next year and will be one of the team captains, along with junior defender Tommy Campbell. Junior Tyler Cornelius will be the top midfielder returning for Wyoming. “I’m optimistic that it will be a successful season,” Hughes said. “We just need to work on developing some depth.” Hughes said it was tough to say goodbye to this senior class since he coached them for so many years. “It was a great group of guys and it was very difficult for me to end the season since I know these kids so well,” he said.

Wyoming’s Tyler Cornelius takes a shot during Wyoming’s overtime loss to Turpin on Saturday, May 22, at Anderson. Cornelius took the majority of the face offs for the Cowboys, winning 12, and controlled nine ground balls, the most on the team. The Cowboys lost 13-12 in sudden death overtime.

Lady Vikings take baby steps on the diamond By Tony Meale

To an outsider, a 4-23 record may not seem all that great. For the Princeton High School softball team, which finished 2-16 in the Greater Miami Conference this year, it inspires hope. “Oh, it’s a positive,” third-year head coach Mary Von Bargen said. “You never want to have a losing record, but in the league we play in, the GMC is one of the toughest in the state of Ohio for softball.” Still not sold on the improvement? In five seasons from 2005 to 2009, the Lady Vikings went 22-110 (.167) overall and 2-88

(.022) in the GMC, including three 0-18 campaigns. “I really don’t think our record reflected the improvement we made this year,” senior-to-be Bria Kramer said. After a 2-5 start this year, the Lady Vikings lost their next 14 games, including eight by shutout. “We’re a young team,” Von Bargen said. “We had several players new to the game, and they hadn’t seen pitching like that before.” An abundance of novice players, Von Bargen said, is the main reason Princeton has struggled in recent years. “It’s been a forgotten sport (in the Princeton community) for awhile,” she said. “The biggest thing the girls need to do is play. They

need to play in the summer, and younger girls need to start playing sooner.” Von Bargen started a 12and-under team last summer, but was unable to continue it this year due to person reasons. Her top young players this spring were Kramer, juniors-to-be Emma Ficke (starting pitcher) and Erin Powell (center field) and sophomore-to-be Emily Roper (catcher). Ficke went 4-17 with a 4.65 ERA and had 79 strikeouts in 134.0 innings. “Even if the defense wasn’t playing well behind her or the offense wasn’t scoring runs, Emma pitched very well against some very tough competition,” Von Bargen said.

The speedy Powell transitioned from infield to outfield and had a team-high 11 steals, while Kramer was third on the team with a .222 average (minimum 40 at-bats) and led the Vikings with 10 RBIs. “Bria’s definitely a huge leader on the team,” Von Bargen said. “She’s an atypical leadoff hitter, but she got on base and made things happen.” Roper led the team with a .333 average; she was the only Viking to hit over .300. “She’s dominant behind the plate and at the plate,” Von Bargen said. Recent Princeton graduate Katie Depeel, meanwhile, hit .203 and provided valuable senior leadership. “She was the voice on

the field,” Von Bargen said. Other contributors were recent graduates Cheryl Ridings and Nadja Linhart; seniors-to-be Sydney Stewart, Ashley Baumer, Abbie Maine, Lindsey Greiwe, Marisa Ulliman and Allie Porter; junior-to-be Bailey Dwyer; and sophomore-tobe Michael Ortega. “We need to work harder, especially in the offseason,” Kramer said. Von Bargen said that the team hopes to improve its win total next year – both overall and in the GMC – and, more importantly, become more involved in softball and expose younger girls to the sport. “All of that will do nothing but help the program,” she said. “It’s baby steps.”


Princeton High School senior-to-be Bria Kramer led the Lady Vikings with 10 RBI this past season.

What movie, scene from a movie, or song is guaranteed to make you cry? “’Pieces of April,’ by Three Dog Night. I associate the song with the death of my beloved younger brother in an auto accident in 1973, and I cannot hear it without crying.” B.B. “Brian’s Song!”


“No question, no competition – ‘Brian’s Song.’ If your eyes stay dry, you’re not human! ‘Nuff said.” M.M. “Oh, by far the ‘Christmas Shoes’ song gets me every time! And, not so much a movie, but those Hallmark commercials always touch my heart.” M.P. “There are so many, but I’ll choose one: in the final scene from ‘The Little Mermaid’ (Disney Studios, 1989), the character of Ariel, about to embark on her new life as a human, hugs king triton and says, ‘I love you, daddy.’ even after 21 years, this makes me cry every single time!” J.D. “When I was a small boy, seeing Davy Crockett (Fess Parker) fighting to the bitter end at the Alamo always caused me to tear up. Ditto for the demise of ‘Old Yeller.’” R.V. “When George Bailey’s friends come pouring into his living room with money at the end of ‘It’s A Wonderful Life.’ Gets me every Christmas. In fact, I’m tearing up right now just thinking about it.” M.S. “The movie ‘the Notebook,’ as well as the book, makes me cry everytime. I’m watching my mom die with Alzeheimer’s, and I don’t want to go that way ... it’s so sad to watch life die in little bits. It’s very hard to accept that I’ve

My sister-in-law, Olivia deRoziere, was diagnosed with an aggressive malignant brain tumor in May 2009. The symptoms were random at first, but her cognitive senses began to change. Her doctors performed a craniotomy in May and she received radiation and chemotherapy over the next several months. Olivia raised four daughters (Andrea, 24; Megan, 21; Brooke, 18, and Georgia, 15) in Wyoming. They all played multiple sports

and musical instruments. Their lives intertwined with many families. This wonderful community has supported Olivia’s family in many ways for the last year. There are too many people to name individually. The concern and support followed the girls everywhere. It is impossible to thank every person that supported this family. Hopefully the giving will follow them to their adult lives and they will share with their communities. Olivia passed away April 17. Her daughters were with her and I



have since witnessed strong wonderful women that will pass on Olivia’s independence. I believe that the people of Wyoming contributed to Olivia’s daughter’s growth during this trying time. The family will celebrate Olivia’s life 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 26, at the Civic Garden Center of Cincinnati. We would like the community to share in this celebration.

Today, every dollar counts Fathers are often known for their good advice, whether it’s how to catch a ball, ace a job interview, grill the perfect burger or get the best deal on a new car. If your father is struggling with the high cost of prescription drugs, maybe it’s time for you to give him a few words of advice. This Father’s Day, you may be able to help your dad save an average of $3,900 a year on his prescription drug costs. Here’s how. If your father, or any father figure you know, is covered by Medicare and has limited income and resources, he may qualify for extra help – available through Social Security – to pay part of his monthly premiums, annual deductibles and prescription copayments. The extra help is worth an average of $3,900 per year. To figure out whether your father is eligible, Social Security needs to know his income and the value of his savings, investments and real estate (other than the home he lives in). To qualify for the extra help, he must be receiving Medicare and also have: • Income limited to $16,245 for an individual or $21, 855 for a married couple living together. Even if his annual income is higher, he still may be able to get some help with monthly premiums,

a n n u a l deductibles and prescription copayments. Some examples where income may be higher include if he or his wife support other Ned Morrell family members Community who live with Press guest them, or have from columnist earnings work • Resources limited to $12,510 for an individual or $25,010 for a married couple living together. Resources include such things as bank accounts, stocks and bonds. We do not count his house or car as resources. Social Security has an easy-touse online application that you can help complete. You can find it at To apply by phone or have an application mailed to you, call Social Security at 1-800772-1213 (TTY 1-800-3250778) and ask for the Application for Help with Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Costs (SSA-1020).

Her future is Bright, and that’s by design

Chante’ Bright’s grandparents reared her father, aunts and uncles in Glendale, but she grew up in Springdale. After earning her degree from “The” Ohio State University, she enjoyed a career in architecture. Chante’ is now the department manager for research and development at Minority Recruit Online. Her Princeton High School years were full of activity. Chante’ was Evelyn on the drill team, Perkins played the trumpet in both the symphonic Community and jazz bands and Press was a member of the columnist student council as well as National Honor Society. She read the morning announcements, played volleyball, was part of the marching band drill team and was the only Princeton student chosen for the All American Dance Team. Self taught, she never studied dance until college. Obsessed with architecture since the age of 6, Chante’ always liked city maps, drawing floor plans and building with Lincoln Logs. In addition to majoring in architecture, her minor was city planning with some jazz and hip-hop dancing thrown in for good measure. It took her six months to find a job in her field. She even offered to work for free to get her foot in the door. Moody-Nolan Ltd., a minority company, recognized her potential and took her on as an administrative assistant, with pay. She learned a lot about drawing floor plans while answering the phones. The experience taught her more in her first year than four years of college, and she advanced to a fulltime architect. FRCH Design recruited her, and she worked on a project for a Las Vegas Casino before being laid off due to the economy. Chante’s belief in what Minority Recruit Online offers is based on personal experience. “So many students need someone to advise them so they can come out ahead later. I looked for an internship for two years, but was closed out because of race. While searching, I worked crazy hours, for less money.


Chante’ Bright and little Lydia Rose at their Glendale home. Lydia is indicating that she wants to take her turn with the camera. My father referred me to Steve Rousseau, CEO/founder of Minority Recruit Online. I like what Minority Recruit does. It’s necessary for kids, because so many minority children are not encouraged to go to college. MRO tells them ‘yes you can.’ “Great people work there in a laidback, spiritual atmosphere. The company takes the long view for both students and employees. It understands that there are families involved.” Chante’ urges anyone with a desire for higher education to sign on to to discover how the company can help him or her. Chante’ lives in Glendale, next door to her Aunt Vicki. Everyone knows everyone else. She feels safe, and that’s especially important because of her 22-month-old daughter, Lydia Rose, named for her paternal great aunt and grandmother. When Chante’ came off maternity

leave, she worked two weeks and was laid off. This happy, independent, clever baby kept her sane. Chante’ reads novels to her. The other member of the family is Lydia’s buddy, Brown Sugar, an equally friendly Bichon/Shih Tzu dog. A woman of strong opinions and determination, Chante’ doesn’t shop at some of the big box retailers because of their business agendas and treatment of women and minorities. Industrious, she also teaches architecture and drafting part time at ITT. “My sister and I vowed we would never teach. Our mother is a retired teacher, and we always felt she was unappreciated. Now, I love it. It will be a tough decision if a design firm comes knocking.” Evelyn Perkins writes a regular column about people and events in the Tri-County Press area.

Growing stevia – the natural sweetener Growing herbs can be a pleasure for all your senses. And if you’re looking for an herb to help pleasure your sweet tooth, an herb that has no carbs and no calories, then here’s what you need! It’s called stevia, or commonly called “sweet leaf” or “sugar bush,” and has been used as a natural sweetener for hundreds of years. The leaves of stevia are refreshing and can be 30 times sweeter than sugar (extracts hundreds times sweeter), with 0 carbs, 0 calories, and 0 glycemic index, making it the perfect natural sweetener to be con-

sidered for diabetics (check with your doctor first). A n d what’s even is Ron Wilson greater that it can be In the grown in garden your own back yard – especially in containers! Stevia is a tender perennial, and is not hardy past Zone 7. So plant it as an annual (actually planted as an annual in warmer zones as well). It will grow in the ground or in containers, morning

sun, afternoon shade to full sun. It actually enjoys cooler weather, and definitely not the hot weather. In the south, it may require some summer shading. In the ground, stevia requires loamy well-drained soils, but by the same token, enjoys good even moisture. Mounded row plantings, like with corn, are perfect for stevia. Locate in half- to fullday sun, mulch the roots to help retain moisture and keep the soil cooler during the heat of the summer. Pick a less windy site, and feed monthly with an all purpose plant food such

as Espoma’s PlantTone. In containers, plant one stevia plant per 10-12 inch or larger pot, using the basic container gardening instructions. Use Osmocote for a slow season long feeding, Soil Moist to help keep good even moisture, and feed monthly with PlantTone or something similar. Place the pot in half day or more sun, low wind area, and keep the soil evenly moist. Stevia does not like to be totally dried out for any period of time (not soggy wet, just good even moisture). In the heat of the sum-

mer, you may want to move the plant to a cooler half day sun location. When harvesting, pinch the tips of the stevia plant every 3-4 weeks (3 to 4 inches) to keep the plant shorter, fuller and less susceptible to wind breakage. Use the pinched leaves “fresh.” Stevia is susceptible to wind breakage, so try to find a more calm area to grow or possibly place inside a tomato cage for support. Harvest your leaves fresh as needed (morning is best), or harvest leaves or 4- to 6-inch branches with

leaves for air drying. The entire plant can be pulled and air dried at the end of the season, or if growing in a container, moved inside and grown indoors over the winter. Grind dry leaves and stems in a coffee grinder to produce stevia powder. Visit www.abouteating. com for more information on using stevia. Talk to you next time, In the Garden.

Al & Tipper, you really surprised us and not more fragile? The concept of marrying, being a couple, has been quite a standard social unit throughout history. It’s the principal way the great majority of people find pleasure, cope with loneliness, and engage the deep forces of body and soul. A couple begins not with the proverbial “falling in love.” A couple begins at that usually undeterminable time when both are first aware of being chosen by the other. The couple then begins to create and form its personal relationship. As Mary Anne McPherson Oliver writes in “Conjugal Spirituality,” “This is a serious process which requires, some say, nine to 14 years, but which is in any case a highly complicated and lifelong task never really complete. Each couple must by trial and error discover its own unre-

peatable shape. The ‘being’ of a couple is not fixed but living and changing, more like a person than a piece of pottery. It will be born and grow, or languish and die.” Despite the fact that being a couple is such a natural and universal tendency, its growth and success depends on the continued willingness and commitment to be in relation. Will and choice prove to be more important than romance and feeling. Both members of a couple must act in the preservation of their relationship. Psychiatrist Dennis Lin of the Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan speaks of the Gores in USA Today, “Their relationship was probably having troubles over time, and they were less invested in each other and less invested in making this relationship work.” Analyst Dr. James Hollis


“I’m just stunned!” ‘That was the most common adjective used when the news said Al and Tipper Gore were separating. To both friends and foes they seemed a solidly married couple. This column is neither to condemn nor praise them. Such personal decisions carry too many private and unknown factors for us to judge. What we do need to acknowledge are the questions such surprising reverses bring to our minds about ourselves. Questions such as: If their marriage of 40 years ran out of fuel, can mine? If there was no secret third party for either of them, then how could it happen after sharing so much of life together? Can love last? We’re living longer, but is love dying sooner? Can’t a couple’s love grow stronger over the years

choosing each other.” The lessons for us from the Gore separation, or whenever we encounter reversals of long-held images of others, come from honest reflection on the realities of life. Did their public and political life take away too much time from their continued growth as a couple? Does our busy life take too much away from us nurturing our relationships? Should we in the Me-Generation era come to know more about the true meaning of love? Author Mary Anne Oliv-

says, “Real relationship springs from a conscious desire to share the journey with another, to grow nearer the mystery of life through the bridges of conversation, sexuality and compassion.” A couple, having come into existence through choice, can only stay in existence by consciously and unconsciously making that choice over and over again. In the prenuptial paperwork of the Catholic Church, it says to those intending marriage: “Marriage is a lifelong task of

No bones about it – dads love good ribs It pays to mow your grass along the side of the road right before dusk. My husband, Frank, was doing just that when friend Ed Kluba, owner of Kluba Farms, was coming home from selling his produce at market. He stopped to give Frank a bountiful bunch of gourmet lettuces. What a food gift that was since we’re having company tomorrow and my spring greens have all but bolted. Ed’s lettuce will make a nice salad topped with fresh peas from our garden. And since Father’s Day is almost here, I wanted to share a favorite ribs recipe that I’ll be making for the dads in our family. Happy Dad’s Day to all of our Community Press and Recorder dads!

Rita’s grilled baby back ribs

Sprinkle the ribs with the spice rub up to a day ahead. This recipe will serve eight people. You may have leftover rub so store it in the refrigerator for up to a month.

Mix together:

3 tablespoons g a r l i c powder 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaRita spoon chili Heikenfeld powder 1 tableRita’s kitchen spoon plus 1 teaspoon cumin 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper 1 teaspoon Spanish smoked paprika or regular paprika 1 teaspoon allspice


6 to 7 pounds meaty baby back pork ribs, cut into 6 to 7 rib slabs. Sprinkle 1 generous teaspoon of rub on each side of each slab. Put on baking sheet; cover with foil and refrigerate at least two hours or up to one day.

To grill ribs:

Prepare grill with medium heat. Grill ribs until ten-

der and cooked, turning occasionally. Then brush each side generously with barbeque sauce. Continue grilling until sauce forms a sticky coating, about three minutes per side.

Carol Vanover’s sparkling punch

Carol, an Indiana reader, as some of you know, is my “oldest and bestest” friend. She is always trying new recipes with a healthy twist. She served this at a party and everyone loved it. “Not too sweet, very refreshing and good with a meal,” she said. Carol said it looked pretty, too. Adapted from one she found online.

Two 750 ml. bottles sparkling apple cider, chilled 1 liter carbonated water (Carol used seltzer), chilled 3 large oranges, thinly sliced 2 lemons, thinly sliced 6 oz. frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed 1 tablespoon sugar Ice: See Carol’s tip Put lemon and oranges

in large punch bowl. Pour in thawed lemonade. Gently stir in seltzer water and sparkling cider. Add sugar to taste and add ice. Tip: Fill a 4- to 6-cup freezable container with water and freeze. Or use ice cubes. Carol said this would look nice in a pitcher, as well.

Tartar sauce close to Frisch’s

For Eileen Coon, Erlanger reader.


Mix together: 1

⁄3 cup finely minced onion Dash garlic powder, to taste 1 ⁄3 cup dill pickle relish, drained 11⁄4 cups or so mayo Hot sauce to taste (optional)

Audrey Reinhart’s tartar sauce

Audrey sent this in for Eileen Coon as well. “She might like this,” Audrey said.

Mix together:

1 cup Miracle Whip (or mayonaise)

1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 teaspoon yellow mustard 1 or 2 cloves garlic 3 ⁄4 cup sweet pickle relish, drained Few drops hot pepper sauce or cayenne (optional)

Easy hand-held apple ‘pies’

Let the kids help with this one for dad. If he likes nuts, add a small amount, chopped.

1 stick butter or margarine, divided 2 nice big apples, peeled, cored and diced small 2 tablespoons brown sugar 1 tablespoon cinnamon 1 tablespoon flour Extra cinnamon mixed with a bit of white sugar for sprinkling on top (optional) Bread with crusts removed (anywhere from 12 to 15 slices) Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray baking sheet. Melt 1⁄2 stick butter over medium heat in large skillet. Stir in flour and cook a minute. Don’t let it brown. Add apples, brown sugar

Cottage cheese pie recipe

My editor Lisa Mauch tried out the recipe Sarah DeMoss sent in with a few alterations using Splenda and soy milk. To get her version, go to my online column at www. or call 513-591-6163. and cinnamon and cook until apples are tender. Let cool. Roll each slice of bread until it is thin and flat. Put some of apple mixture (not too much) into center of each slice. Wet two of the edges and fold diagonally to form a triangle. Press edges to make a seal. Place on baking sheet. Melt remaining butter and brush tops. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon/sugar mixture. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

the Keystone Savings and Loan building. From this service grew what is no known as Northern Hills Synagogue – Congregation B’nai Avraham. As part of a year of special celebration, a special commemorative


service will be held at 6 p.m. Friday, June 25. A Shabbat dinner will follow. As part of the service and program, congregants who joined in the early days and members of multi-generational families will speak

about their experiences and recollections. The Northern Hills Synagogue choir will participate in the service. The service and dinner will be held at the synagogue, at 5714 Fields Ertel

Road, between Interstate 71 and Snider Road, in Deerfield Township. To make reservations for the dinner, or for more information, contact Northern Hills Synagogue at 9316038.
