‘Unique’ Sharonville site for sale By Kelly McBride

Sharonville will issue a request for proposal for stateowned property that has been vacant for more than a dozen years, but offers visibility to two highways. The land, 15.85 acres at the northwest corner of Interstate 75 and Interstate 275, is owned by the Ohio Department of Transportation. It had previously been used as a roadway maintenance and service facility, but hasn’t been operational for 13 years. The city will accept RFPs beginning through Aug. 1. Economic Development Director Chris Xeil Lyons said that because the state can offer the property to the city as a

To reassure a future property owner, Lyons acquired a $37,460 grant from the Urban Land Assistance Program through the Hamilton County Development Corporation. That grant funded wetland See SITE, Page A4

Wyoming fire chief retires as job cut to part-time FINAL CALL

By Kelly McBride

Wyoming has said good-bye to its fire chief of 10 years. Fire Chief Robert Rielage decided to retire, effective June 7, after his job was reduced to part-time. Mayor Barry Porter said the decision wasn’t easy for the city’s administration. “We have an obligation to our citizens to act fiscally responsible, while at the same time having no negative impact to the services we provide,” Porter said. City Manager Lynn Tetley said the loss of estate tax revenue, among other sources, created a need to cut costs in several departments, including the fire department.

Watch a video of Chief Rielage’s farewell. Go to; search “Wyoming.”

“The decision to reduce city staffing levels was necessitated by the significant reduction in normal annual revenue,” Tetley said. “The city has lost an average of $1.2 million per year in normal revenues due to the repeal of the estate tax, reductions in local government funds and reductions in property values. “Several positions within the city have been eliminated over the past two years in response to budget constraints,” she said, citing the positions of tax commissioner, assistant

city manager, recreation director, recreation customer service coordinator, a police sergeant, a police officer, communications coordinator and a custodian. Tetley estimated a savings of $105,000 per year by making the fire chief position parttime, and an overall savings of $596,000 from all of the reductions. Councilwoman Vicky Zwissler said she opposed the decision to change the fire chief position to part-time. “A volunteer department fits perfectly for Wyoming’s needs and provides this fundamental public safety service for a fraction of the cost a fulltime department would cost,”

Eateries aid supply drive By Kelly McBride

An annual fundraiser to help with back-toschool supplies has grown in Glendale. The effort, organized by Police Chief Dave Warman, combines donations of school supplies according to the Princeton City School list with gift cards to purchase clothing and other supplies for the upcoming school year. This year, several local restaurants are participating, donating a portion of their proceeds one

day during Restaurant Week, June 24-29. Warman said the effort means more than filling a backpack. “This allows the kids to be at the same level as other students when they walk in the school on the first day,” the chief said of the fund raiser, in its fourth year. “They will get a good start.” Recipients of the gift cards and supplies are determined by need, on an individual basis. Any surplus will be donated to Glendale Elementary, for use by teachers and students as

needed. Cash donations will be used to buy gift cards, typically to stores such as Target and Wal-Mart, where Warman takes the students shopping at the end of the summer. Last year, the village filled 60 back packs, with additional supplies sent to Glendale Elementary, and Princeton middle and high schools. This year, Warman hopes to fill 40 elementary school back packs and 30 for the upper grades. “It’s for the folks that need the help the most,”

Warman said. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to have a dinner at our fine restaurants, too,” he said of Restaurant Week. Glendale resident Bev Rieckhoff helps Warman collect donations and organize the supplies. “We contacted the local Glendale restaurants and presented the idea of this new fundraiser to each one,” Rieckhoff said. “They were very eager to join together, and support this fundraiser, which would also generate new business, to help us raise funds to buy Tar-

His story is worthy of a book

Help me salute James Green: an ex-Marine, ex-CIA officer, scholar, teacher and librarian all rolled into one. You can find him at the Bonham Branch library in Wyoming, where he is the teen librarian and very happy to be. James, his wife, Nicole, and daughter Audrey live in West Chester Township, but his journey to us is quite a saga. Born and reared in Lima, Ohio, James majored in journalism at Ohio State because he liked writEvelyn ing. He Perkins had initiaCOMMUNITY lly been PRESS COLUMNIST pushed into business studies, but that wasn’t compatible with his artistic side. He and Nicole met at Ohio State – she was helping her older brother move into the frat house where James was president. It was love at first sight for James, but Nicole was too young for marriage, so he patiently waited. They wed in 1996 and the marriage has worked out beautifully. First employed as a trash collector in Lima, James stepped up to the Marine Corp for four years. He was an infantry officer stationed in Twentynine Palms, CA, (aptly named for the 29 palm trees in the middle

Pursuing his desire to teach, he discovered that Ohio had a “Troops to Teachers” program, so he and Nicole decided to move back. Lakota West schools hired him part time as an English instructor until he got certified, but when 9/11 happened, it was back to duty as a reservist intelligence officer. James worked in the National Military Joint Intelligence Center, traveling to undisclosed locations until 2002. That fall, he taught at Lakota West while attending UC. He describes himself in 2005 as a lump of clay seeking help to become a sculpture. Coming from a military background,

James didn’t consider himself as well read as others and he felt he had to work five times harder. A strong desire to learn creative writing led him to earn an MA in English and comparative literature. What a rewarding feeling. By 2007 Audrey was 3-years-old, so he spent quality time with her while picking up evening employment until she began school fulltime. He did adjunct work at NKU and UC. There he developed an interest in library and information science and graduated in three semesters with another master’s degree. After fast promotion from the circulation department at the downtown library to the Children’s Learning Center, James began working at Wyoming’s Bonham Branch library in March 2012.

and a couple of people in the community said I might make a good councilman. “For me, it’s a way to try to give something to the community that’s been very good to me and my family.” Members of council, along with Mayor Ralph Hoop, interviewed five candidates during a special meeting May 23. “Mike Besl was unanimously selected by the five sitting council members,” Hoop said. Besl was sworn in during Village Council’s June 3 meeting. Alles-White said she's looking forward to working with Besl, who attended a finance committee meeting May 28, as well as a special council meeting on May 23. "It is obvious from (the) finance meeting

that he will be able to hit the ground running," she said. “Mike has made a career in private enterprise, first as the owner and operator of an engineering and manufacturing company, and currently as the owner and operator of a commercial real estate investment company,” Hoop said. “This has given him extensive experience in all areas of business, but with particular strength in budgets and financial projections. “This will be invaluable, given the financial challenges facing Glendale.” Besl also serves on the board of trustees of the Glendale Lyceum, St. Ursula Academy, the Friar’s Club, and is a member of the Xavier University President’s Advisory Council.

Zwissler said. “I believe we need to have a fulltime fire chief to maintain the strength of Wyoming’s volunteer fire department. “The city administration needs to make cuts in other areas,” she said. “Public safety is a service the city must deliver to the residents with 100 percent commitment.” Councilwoman Jenni McCauley commended Rielage for his service to the city. “I wish him the best in his retirement,,” McCauley said, “however, it is the men and women of our longstanding volunteer fire/EMS department who must not be forgotten. “Their top-notch professionalism and incredible commitment to all who live in Wyoming is beyond commendable.

Fire Chief Robert Rielage, left, with members of his crew, after one of his final calls as Wyoming chief, an apartment fire in Springfield Township. PROVIDED

“In addition, they provide superior service and response time,” she said. “I intend to keep it that way.” McCauley said the city has been working to improve operational efficiency. “This has been a council directive to the city manager as we, like everyone else, need to do it better. “In this case, by separating out the many administrative tasks from the management of the fire department, we can reduce cost and keep our quality of service and response time.” Councilwoman Lynn Crider, who chairs the finance committee, said the issue was examined closely. “It was analyzed, and understood that the responsibilities of the fulltime chief could be split into administrative and safety services,” Crider said. “The administrative responsibilities would be

absorbed by others on the staff, thereby not interrupting public safety, but achieving a more efficient administrative process,” she said. “As a former State of Ohio Fire Marshal, we have been very fortunate to have Chief Rielage’s leadership and experience to strengthen our volunteer department over the last several years,” Zwissler said. Rielage said he’s proud of the accomplishments within the Wyoming Fire Department during his 10-year tenure. “I have never been part of an organization that has progressed over 10 years as with the Wyoming EMS,” he said. “When I got here, the department was colloquial,” he said. “They only wanted to handle the small area of Wyoming. “Today, we have made it a true partnership with the automatic aid program in Hamilton County, where one department


are working together,” Lyons said. “It becomes a true public-private partnership.” The process is appealing to the city, she said, because it allows Sharonville to maintain control over what will happen to the property. “We are interested in the most jobs in the quickest amount of time,” Lyons said. “It’s important to the community because it will bring new jobs, and ensure that the property will have the highest and best use for the community.” The site is appealing to an array of businesses, she said, because of its lo-

and geotechnical assessments, “which is due diligence that typically, a developer would pay for,” she said. “We’ve been assured the site is clean and buildable,” Lyons said. Once a developer is chosen, the Sharonville Community Improvement Corporation will acquire the property from ODOT, and will facilitate a simultaneous transfer to the new owner. “The state, Hamilton County and Sharonville

assists another department automatically,” he said of the connection to fire departments including Forest Park, St. Bernard, Springfield Township and Evendale, among others. “Some element of Wyoming responds in an emergency,” he said. “It’s a different approach and the only way in today’s economic conditions that any single jurisdiction can survive, and avoid redundancy of buying equipment.” “The department has been reinvented,” Rielage said, “and we have the support of the guys inside and the citizens of Wyoming.” Rielage said that although he’s leaving his job as fire chief, he’s not truly retiring. “I’m only transitioning.” He said he’ll take a couple of weeks to relax, then he’ll consider the nine job offers he’s already received. “I don’t feel I’m going to be idle for long,” said Rielage, who has 42 years of experience in fire service. Tetley said assistant Fire Chief Matt Flagler will serve as acting fire chief until a new chief is named. She said that while a time line is in development, she expects a replacement to be named within a few months. The city manager said the transition won’t reduce service to Wyoming residents.

cation, at I-75 and I-275. “It’s a unique site because it has visibility to the highways, which see almost 400,000 cars every day,” Lyons said.

Killen retires after 22 years with Wyoming schools By Kelly McBride


Wyoming Board of Education President Todd Levy thanks Mary Killen, right, for her dedication to the school district as she retires after 22 years. KELLY

Wyoming City Schools has hired a director of public relations after the retirement of the district’s long-time representative. Susanna Max took May 13, replacing Mary Killen, who retired after 22 years as Wyoming’s public information officer. Max is is working part-time at Wyoming as she finishes the school year as associate marketing director at the Seven Hills School. She comes to Wyoming with more than eight years of experience in public relations and marketing in education Max settings. Before working at Seven Hills School, Max worked in fundraising, marketing, public relations and event planning at Assumption High School in Louisville, Ky., and at Summit Country Day School in Cincinnati. She lives in Madeira with her husband and two children, ages 6 and 2. “It is a tremendous chance to engage with a family of educators, parents and community members that deeply support high educational standards,” Max said. “My predecessor, Mary Killen, did a terrific job at paving the way as the voice of Wyoming Schools and the community-at-large. “I look forward to telling the great stories of our leaders and our learners and I’m excited about the potential for the district.” The Wyoming Board of Education approved Superintendent Susan Lang’s recommendation to hire Max with a unanimous vote at its April 22 board meeting. “Susanna Max brings great experience from private schools and a creative sense of sharing stories about students and their teachers,” Lang said. “We are looking forward to her creativity in providing all the great features of our public school community in Wyoming.”

A Wyoming resident who worked more than two decades for her school district has retired. Mary Killen will spend time with her family after serving Wyoming City Schools for 22 years. She was honored during the Board of Education’s April 22 meeting. “We’ve been together for 15 years,” board President Todd Levy said. “Mary has been my mentor, my confidant and my chief cheerleader. “We’ve been together through the good times, like the levy success, and even through the darkest times,” Levy said, citing the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. “Nobody has been as dedicated to our community as Mary.” City Manager Lynn Tetley attended the meeting, presenting Killen with a Certification of Appreciation. Tetley cited Killen’s dedication and devotion to the district.


“As public information officer, Mary Killen has served with integrity, thoughtfulness, patience and humor” Tetley said. Killen, in turn, thanked the Board of Education for its longstanding commitment to community engagement and communication between the schools. “I had the opportunity to learn and grow,” Killen said, “and to work with brilliant educators. “I think of the laughter, of the fun times we had,” she said. “The friendships have been incredible. “It touches my heart.”

Evendale buys fuel for rest of year By Leah Fightmaster

Evendale will be purchasing its fuel from another provider this year. The village installed its own above ground storage tanks after Hurricane Ike blew through the area

in 2008 in order to keep police, service and fire vehicles running during emergencies instead of going to the pump. While the village had been purchasing from Lykins Oil through the state purchasing program, it’s switching to High Power

Petroleum. Village council approved purchasing from that company this year instead of Lykins at its June 11 meeting, which allows about $164,000 of fuel funding to go to High Power this year, said Administrative Assistant to the


Mayor Jack Cameron. He added that he believes the village over-budgeted for the fuel costs out of concern for rising gas prices. Want more updates for Evendale? Follow Leah Fightmaster on Twitter: @LCFightmaster.

Springdale Mayor Doyle Webster, right, presents a proclamation of May as National Building Safety Month to Building Director William McErlane during City Council’s May 1 meeting. Webster said the aim was to raise awareness of safety at home, in the back yard, “in places we live learn and work.” The national proclamation is designed to “ensure our homes and businesses are resilient to the challenges of our time, not just by making them structurally sound, but also by boosting their energy efficiency,” according to President Obama. “My administration is encouraging stakeholders across our country to adopt disaster-resistant building codes and standards. We are collaborating with experts to issue modern guidance on construction and retrofitting techniques. And we are supporting cities and towns from coast to coast as they pursue disaster preparedness, mitigation, and redevelopment.” KELLY MCBRIDE/THE (513) 475-UC4U

Photo exhibit raises funds for Maple Knoll residents By Kelly McBride

The work of more than two dozen photographers will be on display at Maple Knoll Village through the summer. The Ohio Valley Camera Club Photo exhibit opened June 5 and will run through the first week in August at Maple Knoll, 11100 Springfield Pike. Members of the club include professionals and those who take pictures as a hobby, capturing images of natural and man-made environments. The exhibit features the work of about 30 photographers, and all of the work is for sale.

The Ohio Valley Camera Club Photo Exhibit will be on display through the first week in August at Maple Knoll Village in Springdale. PROVIDED

A portion of the proceeds from those sales will benefit the Maple Knoll Village Future Care fund, which helps finance the care of residents who have outlived

their resources. The exhibit is open to the residents of Maple Knoll, as well as the public. “Having art shows are important because it

broadens the horizons of people who are not usually surrounded by art,” said Bobi Chenhall, a resident of Maple Knoll and member of the art committee. “This show in particular stimulates our minds with how photography has become so advanced and changed the art world.” Rick Hartigan, head of the Ohio Valley Camera Club, said exhibiting their photos provides an opportunity to meet others who share similar interests. “We like fellowshipping with other photographers,” Hartigan said. “The Maple Knoll show allows us an opportunity to showcase our work.”

The board will make its final decision by the end of June. According to the Ohio School Boards Association, people serving on school boards in Ohio must be district residents and registered voters.

Summit’s Argo finalist in Discus Awards Summit Country Day School senior Rachel Argo has been named a Discus Awards finalist for achievements in academics, arts and athletics. As a finalist, she is now qualified for multiple college scholarships provided by Discus Awards Partners. Argo, of Wyoming, is a National Merit Scholar semifinalist and earned the All-Academic Lacrosse award from US Lacrosse. She has maintained a high grade point average while taking academically challenging classes and serving as the goalkeeper on the varsity girls’ lacrosse team. A portfolio she submitted for regional judging in the Scholastics Art Competition was chosen to move on to national competition. Her work was included in the 2012 Xavier University Student Art Show and she won a second place award in the 2012 Hyde Park Square Art Show. In her Advanced Placement art class, Argo concentrated on a series of works in which she applied theatrical makeup to people and then took photographs of her subjects. "My work is more than photography," Argo said in a statement accompaning her Scholastic art portfolio submission. "My work is unusual, and that is exactly how I want people to react. I want people to walk past my work and do a double-take." She has made an early commitment to attend the Savannah College of Art and Design where she plans to study production design.

Republican Party is marginalizing itself To refresh our memories, in the 2012 election, 55 percent of women, 93 percent of AfricanAmericans, 71 percent of Latinos, 73 percent of AsianAmericans and 60 percent of 18- to- 29-year-olds voted for President Obama. The Republican National Committee conducted and recently released an “autopsy” of its 2012 presidential loss. The sweeping self critique, titled “The Growth and Opportunity Project,” stated, “The Republican Party needs to stop talking to itself. We have become expert in how to provide ideological reinforcement to like-minded people, but devastatingly we have lost the ability to be persuasive with, or welcoming to, those who do not agree with us on every issue.” As part of The Growth and Opportunity Project, focus

groups were conducted to listen to voters who used to consider themselves Republicans. These are voters who recently left the Party. Asked to describe Republicans, they said that the Party is “scary, narRichard row-minded, Schwab COMMUNITY PRESS out of touch,” and is a Party GUEST COLUMNIST of “stuffy old men.” Reince Priebus, RNC chairman, said the Party is in an “ideological cul-de-sac” and needs a new brand of conservatism to appeal to younger voters, ethnic minorities, and women. Good advice.

CH@TROOM June 12 question Ohio legislators are considering a bill which would require only rear license plates on vehicles. Is this a good idea? Why or why not?

“Great idea. Saves money and bumpers.”


“Without enforcement of the current law why have a law? I see many cases where a front plate is lacking. “When I picked up my last new vehicles, the dealer asked whether I wanted the front plates mounted. He said many people do not want the front plate mounted any more. “I defer to the police agencies on this issue. They want to keep the front plate as they claim this aids in missing person cases, wanted persons and stolen vehicles. That is a pretty strong case. “But, if this be the case why don’t they enforce the current law?”


“I see no real problem with the deletion of the front plate except for specialty plates for the handicap, DUI, etc.. “If the plate was deleted, I think there should be a law that vehicles can not carry plates inside cars in windows. I see a severe problem in accidents that plates become flying objects and can cause injuries or worse. I’m sure there would be a great financial savings to eliminate the front plate.”


“I do not think it is a good idea, as I feel that both plates being visible would help people to identify the plates of criminals fleeing the scene of a crime. If a witness can only see the front of the car and there is no license plate, an important clue to the identity of the ‘bad guy’ will be lost.”


. “This is a good idea. Makes the car look better, other states allow for 1 rear plate. Why not? What’s taken Ohio so long? “But I would hope the legislators have better things to spend their time on (e.g., right to work legislation, etc) than this.”

“When I bought my last car the dealer asked if I wanted a front license plate bracket, as if it was optional. Over time, I have observed that a great many people with Ohio plates already leave the front one off. “I have never heard of anyone getting cited for not having one. If the police don’t care, who should. It would save money and make it easier to change plates. Many other states don’t require a front plate.”


“Ohio legislators are lost in the abortion issue, and don’t care about silly license plate stuff. Their thinking is that while they MIGHT vote to save our Earth’s resources, they WILL control decisions you might make in the privacy of your home with your loved ones.”


“I grew up in PA where the single license plate was the norm, and still is. Of course, we had no ‘deputy’ taking a cut of the finances, and people weren’t required to buy two plates. Car registration was managed by mail and worked just fine. It was also less expensive for the driver. “On balance, they had their own extra costs in terms of ‘vehicle inspection’ that consumers had to purchase and display a sticker in the window. I see no reason to have two license plates, one on the rear works just fine.”


“Well, if anyone noticed, many vehicles do not display front plates anyway. My question is what is the purpose of a front plate? Do away with the front plate!”




A publication of

The 100-page assessment immediately drew fire from conservative activists and pundits who derided it as a retreat from fundamental principles. The Tea Party reacted with dismay to the report. Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, said, “Those in the Tea Party movement don’t need an ‘autopsy’ report from the RNC to know they failed to promote our principles, and lost because of it.” Rush Limbaugh, the rightwing radio talk show host, accused Republicans of being “totally bamboozled” and “lacking in confidence.” Therein lies a problem. The Tea Party and the likes of Rush Limbaugh are killing the Republican Party. The Republican Party’s base has been taken hostage

by a doctrinaire bloc with extremely conservative ideas about policy, governance and social issues. The strident far-right wing has taken over the GOP. They are far beyond the mainstream. To add further injury, Republicans have drawn themselves into safe districts. Republicans only won 48 percent of all votes cast for the U.S. House in 2012, but won 54 percent of the seats. This rigged House majority is due to redistricting. Republicans did everything they could to purge Democratic voters from their districts ahead of 2012. In the process of quarantining Democrats, Republicans effectively removed millions of minority voters from their stronghold districts. Republicans have boxed

themselves into an alternate America that bears little resemblance to actual America. So while the country continues to grow more racially diverse, the average Republican district continues to get even whiter. In this alternate America, staunch conservatives help keep GOP lawmakers in the U.S. House; they also help keep the Party out of the White House. The Republican Party has some long-term demographic problems. The Republican Party’s core base of wrought-up white guys is shrinking and, without a change, the Party is inevitably doomed to shrink along with it. Richard O. Schwab is founder of Glendale Organizing For America Community Team.

Writers should be clear about their point I have just finished reading Ms. Winsner’s column (June 5 Tri-County Press), which opens with a sweeping, questionable generalization, and closes with a vague exhortation to contact your representative in Washington about …I’m not sure. Is it Obamacare? Is it the IRS? I wish people on all sides in any debate would be clear about their point. Firstly, let me take open issue with Ms. Winser’s point about “Obamacare,” which is the derogatory name the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is given by those that fear that once people see the actual name of the act they might like it. In fact, I am thinking that Ms. Winsner is one of the lucky Americans able to afford health insurance, and one of the people who has no qualms in backing congressional spending to cover the 37 (yes, THIRTY-SEVEN) failed attempts to repeal the act, while people have to make a choice every day in this country between rent, food or health care. The fact that this country signed an international treaty guaranteeing access to health care for all citizens, not long

after the founding of the United Nations, and still has not lived up to its promise, does not phase the “liberty” “Tea Party” based groups. The fact that Cuba now ranks higher than this country for several health care parameters according to Bruce Healey the conservaCOMMUNITY PRESS tive leaning GUEST COLUMNIST British magazine The Economist does not matter to them either. No. Obamacare must go, because…. It’s a Democratsourced idea. Every other excuse is guff, and it shames us a nation that we have voted not once, not twice but thirty-seven times to repeal it, and have failed, because – and here’s an amazing concept – our democratically elected representatives have decided it should stay. So I ask you Ms. Winser: if it is so “very unpopular” why have people of your beliefs tried 37 times – and failed – to repeal it? Could it be that the majority of Americans cannot indeed, afford health care?

When I hear you deriding health care you never whisper a word about Finland and Sweden, two countries that have public health care systems that work well. And Britain’s National Healthcare System, so often derided by certain Americans, was a point of pride in the opening ceremonies of the Summer Olympics last year. Secondly, no American can agree with the targeting of any group by the IRS because of political affiliation. We should all be appalled. In that we are in complete agreement. However, I would also like to point out that I paid more federal income tax than GE last year. You probably did as well. It’s not hard. I would think that an article on how unfair the IRS is would include at least a reference to these inequalities. Instead, somehow you linked the unfairness of the IRS to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Yes, the title of your article was dead on: “The IRS and Obamacare … seriously?” Bruce Healey is an Indian Hill resident.

POLITICALLY SPEAKING Comments from local leaders about issues in the news:

Why we fear the IRS

“Robust debate is a part of the American psyche. The IRS should never target any person or any group for political purposes. The agency needs to apologize to the injured and launch an independent investigation to determine who is responsible. “I understand that some groups have misused their tax exempt status. Those groups should face scrutiny and have their status revised. But targeting political groups explicitly because they are asserting their First Amendment rights is far beyond the reaches of good government. It breaches our trust and damages the ability of the agency to do its job. The people deserve better. “I hope both sides of the aisle will join me in demanding accountability on this matter. Be394 Wards Corner Road Loveland, Ohio 45140 phone: 248-8600 email: web site:

cause once the government decides to infringe upon the rights of one, it steps upon a slippery slope that could jeopardize the rights of us all.” – State Rep. Connie Pillich, on the admission by the IRS that it targeted certain conservative groups or additional scrutiny

Second opinion

“The Affordable Care Act is neither affordable nor provides adequate care for Americans. As a physician, I know our health care system is broken, but Washington meddling only makes it worse. No law should insert a government bureaucrat between a patient and their doctor. The president’s health care law puts too much control in the hands of the federal government, creating a complex system that emphasizes government intrusion over actual patient care.” – U.S. Rep. Brad Wenstrup on why he voted for the full repeal of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

Ham, basil pinwheels make colorful appetizer I’m not saying I have the world’s best memory, but when it comes to food, I have a photographic memory. Like the other day when I was going through one of my vintage cookbooks and came across a recipe for cinnamon pinwheels. After reading the recipe, I Rita had a feelHeikenfeld ing these RITA’S KITCHEN are the “radio rolls” that were available in bakeries here. It’s not the one that uses puff pastry. This recipe calls for a yeasted dough that you form into coils and flatten out before baking. I think it’s the same roll recipe that many of you wanted to make at home. It’s too long to print here, but I’ll post it on my blog.

Ham and basil pinwheels

If you’re growing basil, it won’t be long before flowers start to form. Pinch those off (yes, they’re edible) and while you’re at it, cut off enough leaves to make these pinwheels. This is a do-ahead appetizer that keeps appetites at bay until the main dish is served.

6 10-inch flour tortillas 8 oz. cream cheese, softened 3 ⁄4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, minced 12 thin slices ham Fresh basil, enough to cover tortillas

Mix cream cheese and dried tomatoes. Spread each tortilla with cream

pan and pour broth around roast. Bake about an hour, or until thermometer reads 150 degrees. Remove from oven, tent with foil and let sit 10 minutes. Serves 8. Diabetic exchanges: 4 lean meat, 1/2 fat.

Opera cream cake. So many of you told me you loved the cake. Suzanne M. said she used a 9-inch by 13-inch pan, baked it at 375 degrees for a few extra minutes. So if you don’t have a jellyroll pan that the original recipe calls for, a 9-inch by 13inch works well.

“I saw salad burnet at a garden store and wondered what it’s used for.” Salad burnet is a hardy perennial herb that tastes like cucumber. It’s a pretty little plant with lacy green leaves and a pinkish, cone-shaped flower. I like to use it in salads and to make herbal vinegars. Borage is another cucumber-flavored herb.

How many times have I told you one of the most fun things about writing this column is the recipes you share?

Community of the Good Shepherd Catholic Church

Understanding the vast wisdom of other spiritual paths demands some knowledge of

cultural and religious traditions that are not our own. For several years, The Community of the Good Shepherd located at 8815 E. Kemper Road, has offered a series of lectures on the great nonChristian religions of the world. This summer Good Shepherd presents “The Buddha’s Path to Awakening” at 7 p.m. Tuesdays,, July 9 through Aug. 13. The group will explore “The Basics of Buddhism,” with guest instructor Richard Blumberg. Richard has been studying Buddhism and the Buddha’s teachings for more than 40 years and has been a practicing Buddhist for the past 15 years. He has taught classes in Buddhism at the University of Cincinnati’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, St. John’s Unitarian Church, the Jewish Hospital and elsewhere in Cincinnati since 2005. Richard has also conducted meditation classes at Lebanon and Warren Correctional Institutions and the Cincinnati Drop Inn Center. He is the founder and moderator of the Project ( Many of his essays on the Buddha’s life and teachings, as well as his translations of Discourses from the early Buddhist texts, are available at, the website he maintains for classes he teaches at OLLI. This six-week course will look into six topics that have con-

cerned the followers of the Buddha since the very early days of his teaching. The topics chosen will result in a comprehensible and reasonably accurate overview of the Buddha; the path he taught; and the fundamental unity of the many traditions that have developed into very different ways of practicing the Buddha's path. The course will cover: 1) Who (and what) was the Buddha?, 2) The Dhamma, 3) The Sangha, 4) Kamma and rebirth, 5) The nature of the Buddha’s Enlightenment, and 6) Schools, traditions, lineages: the transmission and transmutation of the Dhamma.

Then, Miller said, “When he rewired it, rather than turning the motor itself another quarter inch so he could run the electric through the conduit in there, which would be the appropriate thing to do, he chose to put the wires above the unit and he has them zip-tied.” Miller sent a picture of the job to the home warranty company and it agreed to send out a different company to properly wire the air conditioner. “The air conditioner does work.

ing. It’s not safe,” Miller said. A big thing to remember with home warranty companies is you can’t pick the repair companies they send to your home. Sometimes you’ll get a good, well qualified repairman, other times you won’t. Check the warranty to see exactly what it does and does not cover. One woman told me although the warranty company gave her a new air conditioner, she ended up paying the serviceman $1,500 for labor. These warranties cost about $400 a year and have a $100 deductible for each repair.

For instance, you can expect many warranty companies to do the least expensive repair possible. Home warranties have become fairly standard Howard with real Ain estate HEY HOWARD! sales. But while it can give a buyer peace of mind, I’ve seen time and again where there’s been a problem when a claim was filed. Terri Miller said her daughter ran into a claim problem when the air conditioning went out in her Reading home. “The air conditioning fan went out. We turned the unit on and it didn’t turn at all,” Miller said. Miller’s daughter bought a home warranty when buying the house last year after it had been foreclosed upon. She called the warranty company and a repairman was sent out. “He immediately looked at the unit and told me it was a fan motor. ‘We’re in luck, I have it on my truck. I’ll go change it out,’ he said,” Miller said. Unfortunately, the repairman couldn’t separate the fan from the motor so he removed both – with the electricity still on. “He left the unit completely wide open. He left the

» providing targeted outreach, forming partnerships and participating in forums that foster communication and information exchange among regulators, industry and consumer representatives. “We have implemented several innovative programs over the years, such as our Clean Kitchen Award that recognizes our partners who really grasp the concept of food safety in their facilities,” Ingram said. “We also provide our inspection reports for the public on our Website. These two program components have become very popular with our facilities and the public. When you eat at one of our award winning facilities, you can be sure they take their responsibility seriously. “We’re particularly proud that we’ve been able to continually advance our food program while holding the line on costs,” Ingram said. “We are one of the lowest-cost food licensing agencies in Ohio, which provides significant benefits to our partners while most importantly, maintaining no increase in foodborne illness to the consuming public in our jurisdictions.” “But perhaps most satisfying,” Ingram concludes, “is the ability to say: ‘We’re No. 1!'”

IN THE SERVICE Dimarco completes Navy basic training

Navy Seaman Dean M. Dimarco, son of Linda and Daniel Dimarco and a graduate of Princeton High School, completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. During the eightweek program, Dimarco completed a variety of training which included classroom study and practical instruction on Naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness. The capstone event of boot camp is “Battle Stations.” This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. “Battle Stations” is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of honor, courage and commitment. Its distinctly “Navy” flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a sailor.

Members of Jewish Family Services marketing team were honored for the "WE GIVE A ..." campaign. From left: Mark Miller (Forest Park), Beth Schwartz (Kenwood), Sherry Kaplan (Blue Ash), Catherine Stahl (Northside), Dennis Mitman (Symmes Township) and Max Yamson (Oakley). THANKS TO ELIZABETH SKIPPER

applause and bow of appreciation to our marketing director Sherry Kaplan and the marketing committee for daring to ‘push the envelope’ with an edgy slogan, aggressively using technology and strategically using traditional channels to move the campaign, abandoning the usual and typical, and capturing our community’s attention,” Jewish Family Service Executive Director Beth Schwartz said. Mark Miller’s company US Digital Partners donated talent and time to create the website. 779 Video created the animated videos at a non-profit rate. Both allowed the campaign to stay within budget. “All of Sherry’s coworkers can attest to the time, effort, and scrutiny that she put forth in order to get the execution of the videos, direct mail, and messaging exactly the way she and the committee wanted it. Sherry wrote the preliminary storyboards for the videos, the copy for the voiceovers, and spent hours in the editing process making certain that we were telling our JFS story effectively in less than a minute. The committee edited further, provided outside expert perspective, and strategized how to implement the campaign that Sherry smooth-

ly carried out,” Schwartz said. The “WE GIVE A…” marketing was developed in response to a challenge last year by JFS Board President Michael Schwartz to create an edgy awareness campaign. Schwartz noted that “JFS is an incredible organization that is truly the “doing” agency in our community. Too many people don’t know about all the wonderful services that JFS provides. We hoped that this campaign would entice people to take notice.” Jewish Family Service has a wide array of distinct program areas serving all ages in the community from "babies to bubbies.” These include infant adoption, emergency food and financial assistance, domestic violence prevention programs, youth mentoring, geriatric care management, immigration services, Holocaust survivor services and more. “Someone who knows that our Bigs & Littles youth mentoring program leads a child to a more secure future may not be aware that we also have nationally certified geriatric care managers to help senior adults live independently. Or a donor may understand how case managers at our food pantry guide a family toward self-reliance, but may not

know that we also have adoption social workers working with birth mothers and adoptive families to give infants a secure loving home,” Kaplan said. The committee’s goal was to create a bold identity that would differentiate Jewish Family Service from the crowd of Jewish-named organizations, emphasize the importance of the agency’s professionals’ direct involvement with clients, and increase awareness to current and potential supporters within the Cincinnati Jewish community by embracing all service areas under a new young and smart umbrella. “WE GIVE A...” was born. The Jewish Family Service mission statement is to strengthen lives in times of need. The vision statement is to create a Jewish community where everyone lives with stability, dignity and hope. “WE GIVE A...child stability. WE GIVE hope. WE GIVE A...senior adult dignity. WE GIVE strength,” Kaplan said. “It is edgy, attention-grabbing, and daring. Yet, when the sentence is complete in various ways, it softly explains what our dedicated Jewish Family Service team does every day.”
