BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Wyoming may change multi-family zoning code By Kelly McBride kmcbride@communitypress.com

Wyoming City Council will consider a change to its zoning code that would benefit multi-family residences within the singlefamily zoning district. Council conducted a public hearing June 17 on an ordinance that would amend part of the city’s planning and zoning code that affects those buildings. Community Development Director Terry Vanderman explained during the public hearing that the current code doesn’t allow the owners of buildings housing more than two households to make improvements without reducing the occupancy to two families. The amendment would allow the city to consider each situation individually. The discussion arose when a development plan application and rezoning request for a four-family property within the singlefamily district was presented to the city’s planning commission. According to the ordinance, “upon reSee CODE, Page A2

Sharonville adds party to Fourth celebration By Kelly McBride kmcbride@communitypress.com

Sharonville has ramped up its July 4 celebration with a party. The city will hold its annual parade, looping through downtown to Depot Square, but this year parade-goers can stay for the Fair at the Square. “It’s a way to have something more to do, yet we stated within a time period earlier in the day,” Mayor Kevin Hardman said. This year’s theme is “Sharonville Past, Present and Future.” The parade will begin at the corner of Reading and Sharon roads, and will follow the downtown loop. Residents can participate in the parade in several ways: » enter a float, classic car, mascot or musical group, or participate as a marcher or performer; See FOURTH, Page A2

Springdale firefighters wear

to support fight against pancreatic cancer

By Kelly McBride kmcbride@communitypress.com

Springdale firefighters are wearing purple in support of one of their own. Firefighter Jamie Bigler’s wife, Karen, is in stage four of her battle with pancreatic cancer, a diagnosis that came late and hit hard. Karen, 43, had noticed a nagging pain in her back, but attributed it to a car accident last September.

When her gall bladder failed soon afterwards, the blame switched and her gall bladder was removed. When the pain was still there even after a subsequent bout with pneumonia, “we said something’s going on,” Jamie said. An appointment with an oncologist revealed pancreatic cancer, but they felt it was manageable. “They found a tumor, but they were hopeful,” Jamie said. “We would do chemo and radiation.

Auditor visits Evendale to talk taxes By Leah Fightmaster

lfightmaster@communitypress.com

Ohio’s state auditor stopped by Evendale recently to chat with local leaders. Dave Yost was in Evendale June 10 for an hourlong meeting, mostly regarding House Bill 5 and centralized tax collection, or the collection of all taxes by the state. He said while some state legislators said that collecting taxes from local jurisdictions would be more streamlined and inexpensive, he believes many local governments are collecting their taxes as cheaply as it can be done. Jack Cameron, Evendale’s administrative assistant to the mayor, said that though they have been told Issue 5 is off the table, he and many others don’t quite believe it’s true. He added that while he thinks many agree that uniformity, such as in term definitions and methods, related to tax collection isn’t a bad idea, they’re uncomfortable with allowing the state to take over local tax collections entirely. “We’re leery of the central collection issue, even though they’ve said it isn’t on the table,” Cameron said. “(The bill) is an easy vehicle to put it back on the table.” Evendale tax administrator Cindy Vaske said

that she, too, agrees with the idea of uniform tax collection, but the House bill is written in a way that could bring centralized tax collection back as a possibility. Evendale Vice Mayor Stiney Vonderhaar said allowing the state to collect all taxes would likely result in a revenue loss for the village because more of it would stay in Columbus. Yost said that he’s against centralized tax collection, and has told legislators as such. He added that at least for this general assembly, although elections are next year, it won’t make it through. “I’m against it in any general assembly,” he said. “I think it’s a bad idea. It penalizes the folks who are able to be efficient.” Want more updates for Evendale? Follow Leah Fightmaster on Twitter: @LCFightmaster.

Now she has another reason to resume treatment, and hope. This isn’t the first time the Springdale Fire Department, a brotherhood of the highest strength, has bound together to support fellow emergency workers whose wives have been stricken. Former Firefighter/ Paramedic Steve Coley lost his wife, Jill, to pan-

They’re wearing customized purple T-shirts in July, to mark the couple’s anniversary, and will sell them for $15 each, as a fund raiser for the family.

The purple T-shirts, designed by Williams’ wife, Melissa, feature monogrammed boxing gloves. The gloves, marked K for Karen and B for Bigler, represent the fight she’s waging against cancer. “When she was diagnosed,” Jamie said, “the doctor told her to put her gloves on and fight.” Karen said the support of Springdale’s emergency workers has given her a new reason to fight. “I had quit chemo, but because of this, it shows that people really do care,” Karen said. “Because of this, I’m restarting chemo. “I do have people that care about me. That they come together when you need them, that means the world to me. “The words thank you and I love you don’t have the same meanings as when you’re going through something like this,” she said. “Now I’ve got extra oomph to fight.”

That is where she met Cyndi, who was teaching and free lancing in the retail fashion industry. Marion later worked for the Friedman Advertising Agency.

Shakespeare goes to summer camp By Kelly McBride kmcbride@communitypress.com

Shakespeare is in Sharonville this summer. A summer drama camp for kids, run by a member of the Sharonville Fine Arts Center Board of Directors, has brought 11 kids to the stage, to perform “Macbeth.” The two-week camp was organized by Susan Wyder, who is also a member of the Princeton Board of Education and a retired teacher from Sharonville Elementary. As a Sharonville teacher, Wyder had organized a Renaissance Festival at the school each year. Those costumes were made available for the summer camp, where budding actors could enjoy the full effect of the 11th Century play. The script, from “Shake Hands with Shakespeare,” is geared toward elementary school children. The actors rehearsed four days a week, and will perform for the public June 29, with plays at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Fine

Arts Center, 11165 Reading Road. The camp, at $100 per camper, will serve as a fund raiser for the Fine Arts Center. It’s an opportunity to expose the kids to Shakespeare at an early age. “I wanted them to have the experience of performing Shakespeare on the stage,” Wyder said. The program brought students from several schools, including Good Shepherd Catholic Montessori, Sharonville Elementary, Leaves of Learning and Princeton Community Middle School. Cesar Vanegas, 9, who attends Sharonville Elementary, said he wanted to see what it was like to perform in a play. “It’s new, and I wanted to see if I like acting,” he said. Ella Hiles, 9, of Sharonville Elementary, said she enjoys drama. “I’m very dramatic,” she said. “I’m good at it.” It was fun to dress up and get up on stage, but the campers agreed that learning their lines was a challenge.

“The hardest part is memorizing my lines,” Aiko Kimura, 10, of Good Shepherd Catholic Montessori. “The most fun part is getting dressed up.” “That’s the hard part,” Cesar said of learning his script. “But you have to do it. “Those lines don’t just get in your head by themselves.” Erica Bechtel, 13, of Princeton Community Middle School, and Evan Gilland, 13, of Leaves of

FINNEYTOWN — Holy Trinity-St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church parish administrator Eugene Nicholas said he hopes people leave the Panegyri Greek Festival full and happy. “We try to make sure everyone feels welcome and can experience the Greek culture,” he said. The 39th annual festival is 5 to 11 p.m. Friday, June 28; 3 to 11 p.m. Saturday, June 29; and 1 to 8 p.m. Sunday, June 30, at the church, 7000 Winton Road. Free parking is available at St. Xavier High School, 600 W. North Bend Road, with shuttle service to the festival. There will be traditional Greek food and desserts, dancing, entertainment and cooking demonstrations. There will also be tours of the church, the church bookstore will be open and there will be some market vendors selling clothing and jewelry. Carnival rides are also part of the festival. “Our biggest focus is the food,” Nicholas said, adding that last year they sold 12,000 gyros. A gyro is a pita bread sandwich made with a blend of beef and lamb meat, tomatoes, onions and is topped with tzatziki sauce, a blend of Greek yogurt and cucumbers. He said they will also offer Greek express dinners with a choice of one of five entrees including chicken and lamb served with rice pilaf, green beans, Greek salad and bread. He said for those

Glendale names 2 assistant fire chiefs By Kelly McBride kmcbride@communitypress.com

Glendale has filled its assistant fire chief vacancy with two officials. The pair, who include a recently retired fire chief, were sworn in to the volunteer department during a May council meeting. William (B.J.) Jetter and Mike Reenan began work immediately, sharing the workload and the hours on call in the department that includes 48 volunteer firefighters. Their appointments replace former assistant Chief Kevin Hardwick, who was named fire chief in March. Hardwick said the village received 10 applications for the position. The job description included a minimum of 12 years in the fire service. “All applicants had experience as an officer in their fire departments,” Hardwick said of the applications that came from Sycamore Township, Colerain Township, Springdale, Reading, Springfield Township, Harlan Township, West Chester Township, Deerfield Township, Cleves and Glendale. “Most people had much

more than the 12-year minimum.” Jetter recently retired from the Sycamore Township Fire Department, where he served as chief for 17 years. He has more than 35 years in fire service. Among other accomplishments, Jetter was president of the Hamilton County Fire Chiefs Association and serves as a chief of the Greater Cincinnati Hazardous Materials Team. Jetter teaches at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, and is an instructor for the National Fire Academy. His career began with the Deer Park Fire De-

partment before he moved to Sycamore Township. Hardwick worked with Reenan at the New Burlington Fire Department. Reenan, who comes to Glendale from the Colerain Township Fire Department, has more than 40 years in fire service. He will retire from the Colerain Township department later this year, where he is part of the township’s Command Officers rotation. The chief said that while details are still being worked out, Reenan will lead the training program and work to establish the Glendale Fire Academy, which will in-

clude various levels of fire and EMS topics. Jetter will handle operational activities, inspections, compliance and training. Each assistant chief will contribute 48 hours per month to the Glendale department. “Not all of these hours will be on station,” Hardwick said, “but it’s time that is dedicated to the department. I am so pleased to have these two men a part of our department,” Hardwick said. “Mike will bring a renewed vitality to our training program and the ability to make us an elite training department. “B.J. is very well known in the Cincinnati area, the state of Ohio and the national level,” the chief said. “His connections and contacts can greatly benefit our department. “He, too, carries instant credibility that enhances our senior leadership,” Hardwick said. “We are fortunate to have both with us.” Hardwick said the decision to appoint two assistant chiefs echoes the department’s structure prior to 2008. “The main reason is to share the load of the position between two people, so the job isn’t overwhelming to only one,” Hardwick said. “This way, we can also spread the senior leadership to better work with all of our firefighters.” For more about your community, visit Cincinnati.com/Glendale.

Sharonville supports National Stuttering Awareness Week By Kelly McBride kmcbride@communitypress.com

Sharonville has recognized national Stuttering Association Awareness Week. City Council passed a resolution supporting the national awareness, and presented a plaque in support of the association to Pam Woebkenberg May 14. According to the resolution, President Reagan in 1988 proclaimed that the United States should observe a Stuttering Awareness Week to show support for the millions of Americans who suffer from stuttering. The National Stuttering Association recommended that the second week in May of every year should be observed as National Stuttering Awareness Week, which city officials voted to observe in Sharonville. The resolution describes stuttering as a disorder that impacts

the ability of millions of Americans to properly communicate through speech, and has no known cure.” “There are Chapters of the National Stuttering Association in Cincinnati and in Cincinnati North giving people who suffer from this frustrating and potentially emotionally stressful disorder the opportunity to learn by education from others,” the resolution stated. By unanimous vote, council members voted in support of the resolution, which concluded: “Be it hereby resolved by the Council of the City of Sharonville that the City hereby actively supports the national Stuttering Association Awareness Week.” For more about your community, visit Cincinnati.com/Sharonville.

Wyoming’s Howell Keeper Keller leaves impressions ready to make on, off field saves at next level By Nick Dudukovich

By Nick Dudukovich

presspreps@gmail.com

WYOMING — Wyoming High School senior-to-be Casey Howell is playing summer ball for Team Cincinnati this summer. If you watch the pitcher close enough, you’ll notice something on his wrist. It’s a band that has “CM” embroidered on it. The letters are the initials of Christine Miller, a Wyoming teacher who died this spring. Several boys on the team had Miller as a teacher, and wanted to do something for her family. The team invited Miller’s husband and two kids to a game, while also welcoming the children in the dugout. Howell has continued to remember his teacher by wearing the wristband. “Just whenever you play with something like that, It just feels different wen you don’t have it with you,” Howell said. “I just thought it was important to continue honoring her memory.” Head baseball coach Chris Fiehrer said Howell is a good kid, and it was important for him, as well as the team, to recognize Miller. “That’s a nice gesture by him that he wants to continue to wear it…for us in the high school season, (the team) really wanted to wear that do something to honor her.” Howell, who was voted the Tri-County Press Sportsman of the Year, was described as a supportive individual on his nomination form. Whether comforting a mourning family, or giving encouraging words to a teammate, he’s known as someone who’s there to lift up others. He also takes care of business in-between the lines. As a linebacker for the football team, Howell was fourth in the CHL in tackles with 104. This past spring, he posted a 1.31 ERA en route to earning second-team all-CHL recognition. “From a baseball standpoint, he plays very hard. When he’s out there, he’s hustling…and plays hard-nosed,” Fiehrer said. “He goes out there and gives us a chance. He was the victim of some tough luck, but the ERA was low and he was definitely probably one of the best pitchers in our league, no doubt about it.” Howell is quick to point out that none of his stats would be possible without teammates. “As a linebacker, it’s a lot easier when people have to double team lineman in front you….and (in baseball), I have had fantastic catchers (Daniel Gil-

Talk to recent Wyoming High School graduate Abby Keller, and it’s easy to see why the goalkeeper will be suiting up to play Division I soccer at Indiana State next season. Keller’s competitive drive is obvious. It’s a reason she went from being new to the position as a freshman, to a three-time team MVP for the Cowboys, as well as being named first-team allCincinnati Hills League and first-team all-district as a senior. Keller was the epitome of a stand out player player at Wyoming and she closed out her prep career with one more accolade, as readers of the TriCounty Press voted Keller as its Sportswoman of the Year. She won two Cincinnati Reds tickets courtesy of the Reds. Keller’s competitive spirit is something that proved useful off the field. Among her numerous awards and accolades, she was also a three-time AllSouthwest Ohio Academic recipient. “I’ve always been such a competitive person, which can be a downfall,” Keller said before letting out a laugh. “But I’m competing in most everything I do…” Managing sports and school can be arduous, but it’s something that’s paid off in the long run, according to Keller. “It’s very difficult (to balance school, sports and a social life). Most of my life is soccer and school…It’s difficult, but worth it, especially if you love the sport you’re playing.” When Keller moves to Indiana State later this summer, she’ll certainly take her competitive drive with her, which will be necessary for competing at the next level. Keller’s competitive trait is something that stood out to Indiana State head coach Erika True. “Those are the kids that thrive in our college environment….the ones that want to compete and the ones that want to show up every day and train 110 percent,” she said. It’s a reason why Keller was able to learn the position as a freshman on the junior varsity squad before going on to three dominant years at the varsity level. Her coach at Wyoming, Lauren Gruber, remembered Keller as a ninthgrader who was willing to give the position a shot. “She was willing to just try it...She

bert and Chris Campbell) who can block the ball, so I can throw what I need to throw.” Howell has always thrived playing in a team environment. It’s something his mother, Cindy Howell, has noticed ever since he started T-ball as a kindergartner. “I think he feels part of a good thing, when he’s on a team. He tries to make everybody feel good about it as well,”Cindy said. She added that her son was never one to watch a lot of sports because he’d rather be in the thick of the action. “He’s a gung-ho sports enthusiast. He doesn’t much like to watch it. He likes to be in it,” Cindy said. With his senior year on the horizon, Howell is taking everything in stride. He’d like to play baseball in college, but is also considering the military. Until it’s time to make that decision, Howell wants to enjoy the time he has left being a Cowboy. “I’m just going to take it one week at a time…and enjoy it while it lasts,” he said.

would attend training sessions on her own time and would go to goalkeeper camps to play catch up,” Gruber said. Keller said she loves soccer, and has been drawn to the game ever since she was little. She quenched her thirst for the sport by playing year-round. Playing at the club level helped her grab the attention of college coaches, and in the end, Indiana State was the best fit. She’ll have an opportunity to compete for a starting job, which didn’t hurt in the recruiting process. “We have two freshman keepers coming in, so, the ball is in her court,” True said. “It’s a position to be won....either way I think she’s going to impact our program immediately.” Gruber predicts good things for her former goalie, as long as she keeps the same approach. “If Abby continues with the kind of work ethic and the competitive drive she has, I think that will put her in a position to compete…she needs to do her best and work hard and things will work out for her,” Gruber said.

Sharonville resident is OHSAA scholar athlete St. Ursula Academy Senior Madeline “Maddie” Reilly of Sharonville was recently awarded the “Scholar Athlete Award” by the Ohio High School Athletic Association for her commitment to academic excellence and participation in interscholastic athletics. One “Scholar Athlete Award” is given to a high school senior at each OHSAA high school. The recipient of this award must have a very high scholastic average and have earned at least four “letters” in varsity sports.

In addition to this, Reilly is in the National Honor Society and has volunteered her time with Matthew 25 Ministries. When asked why Reilly was the ideal recipient of this award, SUA guidance counselor Lauren Williams said,” I think Maddie’s dedication to her academics, her team, and her volunteer efforts show the unique character that she has. Maddie’s courage, humor, maturity, and her compassion for others make her an excellent candidate for this award.”

Reilly plays varsity lacrosse and is the goalie for the varsity field hockey team. Reilly While these sports are very time consuming, Reilly also serves her community and school in other ways. She is a member of the SUA Life Club and also volunteers with CSTAT, an organization that assists with global injustices.

Bill aims to end human trafficking

CH@TROOM June 19 question What is your reaction to the Supreme Court ruling that says police can take your DNA when you are arrested for serious and violent crimes?

“Although this may be appealed and reversed later by the Supreme Court, it sounds acceptable to me. The idea, I suppose, is that other crimes might be solved if DNA of an individual can be used to place him/her at a crime scene or be used against the individual as a suspect in these serious and violent crimes. “It is probably another example of the government trying to crack down on terrorism in the long run, not trying to take away rights of individuals; if you accept that the government acts paternalistically in your best interest, it shouldn’t bother you.” TRog

“Hmm. I’ve never been arrested for serious and violent crimes. If that were to happen, I would hope that the police would take my DNA. “At the same time, I would hope that they would be prevented from saving it in a permanent data base if I was exhonorated, and no other cross-references indicated other serious and criminal culpability.” N.F.

“This ruling is very good and don’t tell me that they are infringing on your personal space. Don’t do the crime and you have nothing to worry about.” Dave D.

“The Supreme Court chalked one up for the good guys for a change. How bout that!! “I say ‘Do the crime, surrender your slime.’” T.J.

“Once again the Supremes got it wrong. The only way that DNA should be allowed to be taken without the consent of the arrested person would be with a warrant from a judge which would be based on the probability that the DNA may be of some use in that particular situation. “What they are now allowing is a wide use of personal property in the search of potential felons. I am not a felon and would not allow my DNA to be taken without a legal wrangle, which obviously I could not win now. “Oh, well, big brother wins again.” J.Z.

The riveting story of Amanda Berry’s brave escape from her captors in a Cleveland neighborhood exploded on the news scene as the Ohio House of Representatives began to consider a bill to protect women and girls like Amanda, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight. House Bill 130, called the End Demand bill, will protect victims of human trafficking in Ohio, punish the perpetrators and inflict stiff penalties on those who seek to exploit girls and women for sex. In the last few weeks, women with personal knowledge of this despicable crime presented their cases to the House Judiciary Committee. They told their stories, one by one. Although their names and faces were different, their stories held commonalities. The typical victim was assaulted physically or sexually (or both) when she was only 8-years-old. To escape the abuse, she ran away from home around age 12. Alone and frightened on the street, she accepted help from a kind, older man. He provided shelter, security

and safety. After gaining her trust, he preyed upon her weaknesses. He isolated her from her family and friends – everything she knew. He plied her with powerful drugs and Connie Pillich COMMUNITY PRESS repeatedly raped and beat her into submisGUEST COLUMNIST sion. Then he prettied her up, took photos or video and sold her on the internet. He forced her to have sex with multiple men (sometimes as many as 20!) a night. Failure to perform adequately brought on severe beatings and vicious rapes. This continued for years until she was of no more profit to him. Then he tossed her into some gutter on the street, a piece of trash that he wanted to remove from his car. The lucky ones then get help. Their daily physical torment is over, but they all will suffer from this trauma long afterward. Tragically, this scenario plays out

every day in Ohio. Children are entrapped around age 12 or 13, and in many cases, enslaved for decades. Every year, more than 1,000 girls are trafficked into sex slavery in Ohio. Every year, thousands of men pay money to rape these children. Reports seep into the news occasionally. This year’s Super Bowl was a feast for sex traffickers. Authorities knew it, yet only five women were rescued. Bizarrely, trafficking victims are treated like criminals, while their traffickers and those who pay to rape them go free. House Bill 130 seeks to reverse that. If passed, it will protect those children and women and place the blame where it belongs. I am proud to co-sponsor House Bill 130. It is time we hold the right people accountable and protect those who cannot protect themselves. We should all hope that the legislature passes this important bill. State Rep. Connie Pillich represents Ohio’s 28th House District. She lives in Montgomery with her husband and two children.

Good vacations start with good planning It is finally here – the opportunity to recharge your batteries, reconnect with family and have some fun. Ah, summer vacation! Months of planning are about to pay off for a trip that will hopefully keep you refreshed throughout the season. Regardless of what you have planned this summer, it is important for you to remember to pay attention to the not-so-fun aspects of your summer events. Here are some tips to help keep troubles at bay before, during and after your time away:

Before leaving town

» Thoroughly research your destination and associated costs. Know the price ranges of the restaurants you want to visit and the activities you want to pursue, and understand the terms of your rental or hotel booking. » Set a budget based on your research. Put aside money each week toward your goal, and start early. » Look for deals. Several organizations offer membership discounts, and you may find additional savings through your credit card, the area’s visitors bureau, attraction websites and travel sites. » Try to be flexible on dates. It can make a big difference in the cost of lodging and flights. » Notify trusted neighbors that you’ll be away and when you expect to return. Let them know if you will

have a house sitter. » Place a hold on your mail and newspaper deliveries or ask a friend or neighbor to pick them up. You also may want to have your yard maintained. A pile of newspapers and an overgrown yard can signal an empty

house. » Simulate a “lived-in” appearance by using timers for turn lights and a radio or TV during expected hours. » Notify your credit card providers of your travel plans: When you’re leaving, where you’re going and when you’ll return. This helps companies identify fraudulent charges if your card is used in an area you’re not visiting. » Do not share your travel plans on social networking sites.

During your trip

» Make lunch, rather than dinner, your big meal out. Prices are lower and often the menu is the same. » Take advantage of smartphone apps that can help you find the best prices for gas and other savings. » Use mobile banking apps to monitor accounts and track spending so you don’t have surprises when statements arrive. Ice creams, souvenirs and drink tabs add up fast.

394 Wards Corner Road Loveland, Ohio 45140 phone: 248-8600 email: tricountypress@communitypress.com web site: www.communitypress.com

» Never carry large amounts of cash; use traveler’s checks or credit cards. » Take only your driver’s license/ official ID and two credit cards: one to carry, another to lock in a safe in case your wallet is stolen. » Don’t access financial data or personal information on public computers or public Wi-Fi networks. Be cautious when accessing a hotel room Internet connection. » If you use an ATM, choose one inside a bank. Well-lit lobbies with security cameras, bank employees and customers provide more security for you and for the ATM, meaning it is less likely to be a tampering target for fraudsters.

When you return

» Let friends and family know you’re home. » Get your mail. Open it and electronic mail promptly to address bills or other urgent matters. » Continue to monitor your accounts. Check statements to make sure nothing is out of place. If you notice something unusual or fraudulent, contact your provider immediately. Happy trails, and a safe and happy return!

St. Joseph Home garden feeds volunteerism Volunteers from Contech Engineered Solutions dig a garden at St. Joseph Home in Sharonville. PROVIDED By Kelly McBride kmcbride@communitypress.com

W

hen Contech Engineered Solutions assembled its list of volunteer opportunities, organizers wanted to link the effort to the environment. The West Chester Township company compiled a group of 11 organizations and set out to help with all things earth: landscaping, cleanup and beautification. A visit to St. Joseph Home in Sharonville made an impact on Contech employees, who decided to plant a garden at the nonprofit ministry of the Sisters of Charity in Cincinnati. Residents get around with the help of specialized wheelchairs, and rely on volunteers and staff. “We’ve talked about planting a garden with our residents for quite some time, but had some logistical concerns,” Dan Connors, St. Joseph Home vice president of operations, said. “Contech’s dedication to the project makes this so simple for us, and we’re excited to move for-

ward.” “When we looked at an opportunity to work with St. Joseph, we felt that by building a garden, we were not only touching the lives of the residents of St. Joseph’s, but we were also touching the lives of Contech employees as well,” Rick Gaynor, vice president of customer solutions said. One of those employees is Contech controller Kristin Patterson, who was moved to the point of volunteering to lead the project at St. Joseph Home. “My first time visiting, I left in tears,” she said. “I met the residents, and you feel for their families; I can’t imagine not being with them every day. “To meet the people who work there, and live there, was touching. “We wanted to do something to benefit them,” she said of the garden, which will provide food for the residents and the opportunity to give any surplus to the community. “Volunteers are certainly transforming the look and feel of this home,” St. Joseph Home

President and CEO Michael Rench said. “This connection is wonderful for our residents. Volunteers help keep us from feeling isolated, and they bring such great ideas and enthusiasm to the place.“ St. Joseph Home dietician Kelly Soudrette-Jones will incorporate the harvest into the menu, and pointed to the added benefits the garden will bring to the residents. “It will give quality time to

our residents with staff and each other enjoying nature and the outdoors, nurturing something and watching it grow,” she said. “It offers a potential learning opportunity related to nutrition, science and nature. “Our new garden will improve the residents’ physical activity, and of course the most important benefit of healthy eating with foods being home grown and the excitement of seeing these foods incorporated into

our menu,” Soudrette-Jones said. “Gardening has been shown to have a positive effect on mental health and well being and we are excited to see its potential here at St. Joe’s.” For more about your community, visit www.Cincinnati.com/Sharonville.

Hamilton County Park District launches new name, identity Hamilton County Park District has a new name and brand identity – Great Parks of Hamilton County. Encompassing over 16,560 acres of green space including 21parks and nature preserves, the park system in Hamilton County is indeed great. “The new name, Great Parks of Hamilton County, and new identity are distinctive and easily recognizable, helping to unify our family of parks and widerange of outdoor offerings,” said Jack Sutton, executive director of Great Parks of Hamilton County. “A marketing campaign promoting our name and park amenities is getting underway; it will drive broadened awareness of and engagement in the numerous opportunities afforded by the parks, its services and resources.” Great Parks of Hamilton County reflects the great amount of green space protect-

ABOUT GREAT PARKS OF HAMILTON COUNTY Great Parks of Hamilton County (Hamilton County Park District) is a separate political subdivision of the state of Ohio. It is governed by an independent Board of Park Commissioners who are appointed by the Judge of Hamilton County Probate Court, the Honorable James Cissell. Great Parks of Hamilton County operates under two general sources of revenue including a 1 mill levy passed by the voters of Hamilton County in 2002 and self-generated earned income. Non-tax, or earned income, represents approximately 45 percent of the Great Parks’ total budget. Great Parks of Hamilton County preserves over 16,560 acres of green space of which 80percent is managed as undeveloped natural areas. Visit www.greatparks.org for more information.

ed by the park system, its conservation efforts, nature programming and outstanding recreational opportunities offered throughout the 21 parks and nature preserves, all on a scale like no other park system in our region. The Great Parks bird serves as a visual reminder of what Great Parks stands for, the

preservation of natural resources including land, water and wildlife. This summer, the new name will be incorporated throughout all of the parks, a new, redesigned, user-friendly website will launch and social media platforms will be enhanced. “Our goal is to help Hamilton County residents connect and

engage with each of our parks,” Sutton said. “Through this new identification initiative, you will know that the great experience you have at one of our parks will be just as great as at any of our other parks.” The name and brand identity change did not come quickly. Over the years, park district personnel noticed many residents were not fully aware of the scope of the Hamilton County Park District. In-depth qualitative and quantitative research, including user surveys and focus groups with park users and nonusers, was conducted in 2012. The research demonstrated that many park guests were unaware of all the parks and nature preserves within the Hamilton County Park District network. In addition, many guests were requesting programming and events that are already pro-

vided. “We also found that there was confusion as to the identification of Park District-owned facilities and properties, as distinguished from those owned and operated by other entities of local government,” Sutton said. “Finally, we took a careful look at how we identify and represent our parks and facilities, and we found that some of our park offerings seemed disconnected from one another in many ways. “ The name, Great Parks of Hamilton County, and new identity system were developed in collaboration with Topic Design Group. “Great Parks will broaden awareness of and engagement in the numerous opportunities afforded by the Park District, its services and resources,” said Chris Witham, partner and managing director of Topic.

Celebrate summer with tomato appetizer, preserves

I opened my freezer yesterday and had to laugh. Nestled among the organic mango slices, edamame, homemade baby food and hibiscus mint syrup were a giant box of store-bought Popsicles in every shade of the rainbow, three Kit Kat candy bars and five Baby Ruths. Well, I guess that’s called balance.

Rita Heikenfeld

Maggie’s cheesy artichoke and tomato triangles

From Maggie Hoerst, who our grandchildren fondly call “Dez.” Maggie brought this to grandson Luke’s birthday party, and everyone kept coming back for seconds and thirds. It was delicious even at room temperature, so would be great appetizer to tote to that Fourth of July picnic. Yes, that holiday will be here before you know it! RITA’S KITCHEN

16 oz. refrigerated crescent rolls 16 oz. cream cheese, softened Zest of 1 lemon 2 eggs 1 clove garlic, minced 14 oz. can artichoke hearts in water, drained and finely chopped 1 cup Parmesan cheese, divided 2 plum tomatoes, sliced 2 tablespoons fresh parsley 1 ⁄2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll crescent rolls, press the seams to fit 9-inch by 13-inch or jellyroll pan, and press the rolls up the sides just a bit if you can. Bake 10-12 min or until light golden brown. Remove from oven, let cool. Mix cream cheese, zest lemon, eggs, garlic, artichokes and 1⁄2 cup Parmesan cheese. Spread over crust, and then arrange tomato slices over filling. Combine 1⁄2 cup cheese, parsley and black pepper in small bowl and sprinkle evenly over filling. Bake 25-30 min or until light golden brown and set. Cool 10 minutes, cut into 12 squares and cut each square in half diagonally. Makes about 24 appetizers.

Aunt Margaret’s classic tomato preserves

I may have hit upon something unique here. After I published the classic strawberry jam recipe, I received several inquiries about

other classic/put-up preserves and jams, so I will be sharing those heirloom recipes as we go into summer. One request was from Lana, a Florence reader who said “My grandma made tomato preserves with a lemon wedge in every jar. There was no cinnamon, just sugar, lemon and tomatoes. No one seems to have a recipe for it.” Well, guess what, Lana. I do and it’s from my sweet Aunt Margaret, who we call our second mom. Aunt Margaret makes tomato preserves like Lana’s grandmom. Aunt Margaret goes to taste on most things, but I did nail down this recipe with her last year when she gifted me with a jar. 11⁄2 quarts peeled, small yellow or red tomatoes (about 2 pounds or so) 4 cups sugar 1 thinly sliced lemon 3 ⁄4 cup water

To peel tomatoes: Cut an “x” into the bottom end, plunge into boiling water for a minute or so, then when you see the “x” curling at the edges, take the tomatoes out and, when cool enough to handle, pull the skin off with a knife, using the “x” as a tag. Combine sugar, lemon and water and simmer gently for 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook gently until tomatoes

become transparent, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand 12-18 hours in a cool place. Remove tomatoes and lemon from syrup. Boil syrup 2-3 minutes or longer to thicken. Return tomatoes and lemon to syrup; boil one minute. Remove from heat. Skim foam if necessary. Ladle hot preserves into hot jars, leaving 1⁄4 inch head space. Wipe rims with clean wet cloth. Adjust caps. Process 20 minutes in boiling water canner. Makes about 3 pints.

Tip from Aunt Margaret’s kitchen

If you like, add 1 tablespoon mixed pickling spices and 1⁄2-inch piece fresh gingerroot tied in cheesecloth or in a tea ball and add with the sugar, lemon and water. Remove after you let the preserves stand in cool place. Or add a piece of cinnamon stick to each jar before sealing. You can use green tomatoes if you like.

Duke sponsors June, July orders at Cincinnati ToolBank Duke Energy has made a contribution that will allow all tool orders submitted to the Cincinnati Community ToolBank in the months of June and July to be free of charge. Karen Monday, vice president of foundation and business management with Energy, said Duke has a rich tradition of caring and giving back to the community. “We thought that this would be a great way to support local nonprofits as well as make it easier for our employees that are participating in the company’s Duke Energy in Action campaign,” Monday said. The Duke Energy in Action campaign is an annual company-wide effort that encourages all employees to participate in grassroots volunteer projects in communities that are a part of the Duke Energy service territory. The Cincinnati Community ToolBank is a non-profit organization

that strives to be the premiere local tool lending resource, serving charitable organizations in the greater Cincinnati area. The ToolBank “loans” its inventory of tools to local non-profit agencies, community service organizations, and religious groups to enable them to undertake larger projects that make our community a better place to live. “We anticipate that many of our member agencies will take advantage of this tremendous offer.” said Kat Pepmeyer, Cincinnati Community ToolBank executive director. “The generosity shown by Duke Energy to sponsor all tool orders in June and July will likely lead to an increase in membership as well as tool orders.” For more information about the ToolBank and how to utilize the vast inventory of tools, please visit the ToolBank’s website at cincinnati.toolbank.org.

Tips for keeping your home, basement dry For homeowners, this season can mean wet or damp basements and/or crawl spaces. In many cases, these issues may be resolved with some economical corrections, but the homeowner should get the correct professional advice before spending thousands of dollars for unnecessary repairs. Since I have been inspecting homes for over 15 years and 9,000 inspections, I have seen many expensive improper repairs and have heard tremendous amounts of bad information provided by some of the foundation repair and waterproofing companies. Some of the contractors use scare tactics and tell homeowners the foundation is about to collapse and you must sign their contract now. Foundations that are about to collapse will have major cracks, such as 1-inch or wider, or the walls may have bulged or leaned inward 3 inches or 4 inches or more. It is normal for basement slabs to crack, and the slab normally is slightly raised at the crack due to slab curl, a normal concrete curing process. This does not confirm that water is under the slab or soil has washed out from under the slab. Storm water under the slab is fairly uncommon. Contractors sometimes use a hammer to

include installing fiberglass reinforced panels over foundation cracks to drain the leak into an under-slab drain line connected to a sump pump. This method does cover the crack, but hides what is happening behind the panels, is conducive to mold growth and doesn’t address the cause of the crack. The installation of an under-slab drain pipe and sump pump for concrete foundation walls is probably a waste of money. Concrete leaks only in rare occasions. Concrete foundation walls can leak at cracks. Concrete block and stone foundations are more susceptible to leaking through the wall. Some economical repairs may include: » regrading the yard to slope away from the foundation; » regrading the yard to redirect storm water runoff before it gets near the foundation; » repairing leaking downspout piping; » repairing foundation cracks. Basement seepage and foundation issues should be completed from a plan, not from a contractor’s bid.

tap the top of the basement slab along the foundaMike tion Montgomery COMMUNITY PRESS wall. If the slab GUEST COLUMNIST has curled, this will result in a hollow sound under the slab. The homeowner is told the soil has washed out from under the slab. Since most basement slabs are placed on top of the footing, there is no soil under the slab along the foundation wall to wash out. The hollow sound is due to slab curl, which slightly lifts the slab from the footing. If the slab is tapped away from the foundation wall, the slab probably doesn’t have a hollow sound. If a waterproofing company uses test strips to prove the house has a mold issue, become very wary of them. Some companies use these presumed sampling methods and tell you this confirms there is a mold problem. This most likely is a scam to scare you. All molds are not a health concern. Only a certified mold expert should advise you on mold issues, not the contractor selling a waterproofing system. A typical moisture control method may

Mount Notre Dame wins annual Literacy Network Spelling Bee A team from Mount Notre Dame won The Literacy Network’s 23rd Annual Scripps Spelling Bee for Literacy at the Holy Grail Banks. Mount Notre Dame placed two teams in the final four. The MND team of faculty and staff members Ben Hunt (Norwood), Kim Ostendorf (Winton Place) and Molly Rauch (Mount Washington) captured first place by correctly spelling the word “pasticcio.” MND’s “Team English,” comprising teachers Amy Bonino, Aideen Briggs and Julie Hagerty also reached the final four. “We are proud of our faculty and staff for a great showing at this event,” said Larry Mock, head of school for MND. “It’s an opportunity to have some fun and demonstrate your knowledge for a good cause.” The enthusiasm of the crowd pushed Mount Notre Dame to excel after five exciting rounds of gameplay. Phototype, the runner up, was eliminated after misspelling the word mesoseismal. Both teams received prize packages filled with donations from local businesses including overnight hotel stays, restaurant gift certificates, and tickets to local entertainment attractions.

Mike Albert Fleet Solutions in Evendale has been named as a 2013 Top Workplace in the midsize employer category for Greater Cincinnati for the fourth consecutive year. The award is presented by Enquirer Media. The honorees were selected based entirely on the results of an anonymous employee survey. The survey measures employees’ satisfaction with their position, compensation, benefits, work environment and more.

Marty Betagole, president of Mike Albert Fleet Solutions. The Top Workplaces award is open to any company in the Greater Cincinnati area with at least 50 employees. In order to qualify, at least 30 percent of a company’s employees must participate in the survey. Mike Albert had an 88 percent employee participation rate. Of the 128 businesses that participated in Greater Cincinnati, only 25 mid-size companies were selected as Top Workplaces. Mike Albert placed eighth this year, the fourth time Mike Albert was nominated for the award. The winner of each division was announced in a special supplement to the June 16 issue of The Cincinnati Enquirer.

Students awarded Use Your Noodle scholarships Sharonville-based Laughing Noodle, an extension of the White Castle brand, awarded Princeton High School seniors Nancy Reyes and Anna Krause, with a $2,500 “Use Your Noodle” scholarship each. The scholarships were presented to Reyes and Krause a during an awards ceremony for graduating seniors at Princeton High School in Sharonville. Money for the scholarships was seeded by Laughing Noodle and sup-

plemented by customer donations over a fourweek period. “We’re extremely happy to present these scholarships to two deserving high school seniors,” said Tommy Loveberry, White Castle’s area supervisor. To be considered for the “Use Your Noodle” scholarship, students were required to answer two questions, in 250 words or less, about the funniest thing that’s ever happened to them and how the scholarship would help them achieve

their future aspirations. Reyes and Krause were selected based on their answers to the essay questions. The essays were judged by a panel including members from White Castle and the Princeton Education Foundation. For more about your community, visit Cincinnati.com/Sharonville.
