Wyoming cyclists form foundation for giving Riders raise almost $4,000 for charities By Kelly McBride kmcbride@communitypress.com

An idea that brought a group of cyclists together for fun and exercise has grown into a foundation that benefits local charities.

The nonprofit Wyoming Ohio Cycling Foundation supports safe cycling and organizes rides to raise funds for groups chosen by its members. Cyclists from Wyoming, as well as Liberty Township, Anderson, Glendale and other

communities, meet several times a week for an early morning ride. They start and finish at Half Day Café at Wyoming Avenue and Springfield Pike About 26 cyclists gathered in four teams recently for their third annual charity ride, which was moved from fall to spring,

to take advantage of the earlier sunrise. Half Day Café supplied the coffee and muffins afterwards. The ride included 12 stages over three weeks, totaling 375 miles. Two stages focused on the group’s participation in other fundraising rides, including the

girls saw the eerie outlines of ‘ghost riders’ moving eastward and scurried back to hide under their bedcovers. “No one realized that the ghosts were Morgan’s Raiders wearing stolen veils for protection from dust.”

The Springdale Recreation Department has introduced its new program director. Charles Wilson will oversee youth and adult sports, preschool through high school events, and special events at the center. He comes to Springdale from Albany, Ohio, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in recreation management from Ohio University. He worked for the Athens City Wilson Recreation Department, and for the Marietta Family YMCA as a program director. “It was a six-month process, but he was wellworth the wait,” Springdale Recreation Director Greg Karle said. “I’m impressed with his character, skills, knowledge and background.”

Glendale salutes Memorial Day essay winners By Kelly McBride kmcbride@communitypress.com

Springdale Fire Chief Mike Hoffman, center holding hat, and members of the Springdale Fire Department congratulate fellow firefighter Anthony Stanley, sixth from left, who was promoted to assistant fire chief. KELLY

Glendale celebrated Memorial Day with an essay contest, as part of a tradition that began in 1986. “This annual contest has become an iconic part of our Memorial Day celebration,” contest organizer Jenny Kilgore said during the event at the village’s war memorial. The contest is open to fourth-, fifth- and sixthgrade students who live in Glendale. “It provides them an opportunity to pause and examine the importance of the lives and efforts of our American soldiers, and the impact that these have on the freedom an privilege that we enjoy,” Kilgore said when she announced the winners of the annual contest. She described essays that recounted family traditions and shared acknowledgment and appreciation of the quality of life and privilege Americans enjoy because of “the sacrifice of our fallen heroes.” Each of the three win-

» Third place to Keshav Shah, a fifth-grader at Bethany School. Haley read her essay, titled “What Memorial Day Means to Me.” “Most people think of Memorial Day as just a day to go to parades, have fun, and get a day off school. But Memorial Day means much more than that to me. Memorial Day is a day to honor all of our veterans who have served us, and to appreciate all that have died on the battlefield for us. “If it weren’t for all of the soldiers and veterans that came before us we wouldn’t be who we are today. Imagine what it would be like if those brave and courageous people hadn’t

stood and fought. Where would we be? We might not be free from Britain. We might have slaves. We might not all be treated equally. The Holocaust could still be going on. Maybe we wouldn’t have our own government. We might not be free. We wouldn’t be the Americans we are today. “So Memorial Day is a day to say thank you to all of our veterans. For me this would include thanking my grandfather who served in the Army, my great (X nine) grandfather who fought in the American Revolution, my cousin who is serving in the Marines in Japan, my uncle who served over 30 years in the Army, and my great, great grandfather who served in the Navy during the Civil War. There are many others that I could thank. And I ask you to please say thank you to someone that you know who has fought for our country. Without them and the sacrifices they made we wouldn’t have the freedom that we have today.”

Springdale has named a new assistant fire chief. A long-time member of the department was promoted through a process that included assessments and interviews. Anthony Stanley joined the Springdale Fire Department in 1999. “It has been a long journey to get here,” Stanley said at City Council’s June 5 meeting, at which Fire Chief Mike Hoffman announced his promotion. “I didn’t have any knowledge of fire service, but the guys took interest and helped me learn,”

Stanley said. He thanked the many influences along his 14year path, from fire chiefs of neighboring communities to fellow firefighters to officers in other departments. “They understand what it meant to be a fire officer,” Stanley said. “I’m very grateful and look forward to serving the city in that capacity.” Stanley was promoted to captain in 2010, and the department will work to fill his position in the near future. “As a firefighter and captain,” Hoffman said, “he has been exemplary in both ranks.”

The routes are varied, cyclist Pete Chronis said. “Depending on the route, the hour-long ride varies from 15 to 19 miles,” Chronis said. The cyclists also supported another Wyoming cycling group, the Wyoming Babes, who led the effort to have sharrow markings installed along Springfield Pike in Wyoming. The sharrows, which include a directional ar-

row and cycling symbol, are a visual reminder for drivers that they must share the road with cyclists, and caution safety. “It promotes safe cycling,” cyclist Jim Briggs said. “There’s a visual awareness and it helps promote the community as cycling-friendly and progressive.” For more about your community, visit Cincinnati.com/Wyoming.

Springdale Elementary Student Council organized a community service project that raised $12,000 for Honor Flight. KELLY MCBRIDE/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Springdale school project soaring success By Kelly McBride kmcbride@communitypress.com

Springdale Elementary will help to send 35 military veterans to Washington D.C., to visit their war memorials. The students, who participate in a community service project each year, chose Honor Flight for rheir fundraising efforts this school year. Honor Flight is a program that flies veterans, with priority to World War II vets due to their age, or veterans who are terminally ill, to

Washington D.C., to visit their war memorials. The plane will leave Dayton at 6 a.m. Saturday, July 20, and return at about 11:30 that night. To raise funds, students held bake sales, made Tshirts, sold decorative stars and personalized dog tags, and paid $2 to wear their Halloween costumes to school for a day. “Our goal was $10,000,” Student Council Treasurer Asia Scott, a fourth-grader, said. “We raised $12,000.” Student Council advis-

er Maggie Leutzinger said $10,000 would enable the 35 veterans to fly to the nation’s capitol, and the remaining $2,000 was given as a donation to the program. She will make the flight as well, as one of the guardians to accompany the veterans. The students made the decision to raise funds for the veterans, after previous campaigns that raised money for children and animals. “We wanted to do this for older veterans who served their country,”

fourth-grader Molly Taylor said. Leutzinger and co-adviser Becky Biddle said they’re proud of their students for their hard work. “They now have a heightened awareness of patriotism,” Bindle said. The hard work was worthwhile, fourth-grader Aiden Morgenroth said. “They’ll appreciate that we raised the money for them.”

From toddlers to those of us in full bloom, we all had a jolly good time tapping our feet and snapping our fingers to “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head,” “Rainy Days and Mondays,” “April Showers,” “Blowin’ in the Wind.” “They Call the Wind Mariah,” “Sunshine on My Shoulders” plus many others easily recognized. Of course the program would not have been complete without a play on the words of some tunes. For instance, the lyrics to “Anticipation” were changed to “Precipitation is makin’ me late.” We were treated to some international ditties: “Ame Ame” is a lovely Japanese rain song, and “O, Desayo” from Southwest Africa is both a greeting and farewell to the rain and a bright, sunny day.

Burke new president at Roger Bacon Thomas W. Burke has been appointed the president of Roger Bacon High School. Burke, a 1969 Roger Bacon graduate, is the second president in the school’s history. He replaces The Rev. Bill Farris, who was president for the last 12 years and is Burke being reassigned as the pastor of Transfiguration Parish in Southfield, Mich. “As a graduate of St. Clement School and Roger Bacon High School, Mr.

Burke brings a real understanding of the Franciscan spirit and charism as it is expressed in education,” said The Rev. Jeff Scheeler, OFM, the Provincial Minister. “His business experience and expertise will help him lead Roger Bacon into an exciting future.” Burke has spent the bulk of his career in health care with more than 30 years of health care executive management experience as an administrator, consultant, and educator. Burke attended Xavier University and graduated magna cum laude, with a bachelor of science in mathematics and a mas-

ter in business administration from the University of Cincinnati. He is a past board member of Episcopal Retirement Homes Inc. “I am incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to return to the Spartan family. Roger Bacon and Our Lady of Angels high schools were so influential for my family and me,” Burke said. “My hope is that I can help Roger Bacon High School achieve the fullest attainment of the school’s Catholic mission and to ensure that the Franciscan vision of secondary education continues as the hallmark of the institution.”

DES MOINES, IOWA — The international studies major makes her international track and field debut later this summer. Princeton High School graduate Claudia Saunders finished her freshman year at Stanford University by taking second place in the U.S. Junior National 800-meter run and qualifying for the Junior Pan Am Championships in Columbia Aug. 23 to 25. “I’m most looking forward to going to South America,” she said. “I’ve never been to that part of the world. I’m also looking forward to having a chance to represent the U.S. That’s a big honor.” Saunders - who won the 2012 Division I state title in the 100 hurdles for the Vikings - posted a personal best time of 2:06.46 and missed winning the race by .11 seconds. “It was a pretty good race. We figured the girl from Baylor (Olicia Williams) would go out fast,” Saunders said. “I just wanted to stay close with her. “Coming out of the curve to the homestretch, I kicked it in, but couldn’t quite catch her. I

would have preferred to win, of course, but it was a PR by half a second, so I’m happy with that.” Princeton cross country coach Bob Fitz said Saunders’ success in the middle distances should not be a shock. “I’m not overly surprised, but it was probably a year quicker than I expected for her to do this,” Fitz said. “With the endurance she had from cross country and the speed and agility she had in the hurdles, she’s probably biologically the perfect candidate for the 800 or 1,500. “Her speed in high school was almost at a national class level. Nobody could out-kick her in cross country.” So why did she not run these events in high school? “A lot of people asked her that, but she was always happiest in the hurdles,” Fitz said. “Her track coaches were fine with that, and honestly, if I was her track coach, I would have been, too. We never had a deep discussion about it until she went out to visit Oregon and she asked what she should run. “I told her to talk with her coaches. They will tailor-make a training schedule for the next four years for whatever you want. They want to put you in a position to do well.” Saunders agreed. “I anticipated a little more of an adjustment period, but I’ve

taken to it,” she said. “(Training) is very personalized and my coach (Chris Miltenburg) has made it pretty smooth for me.” Saunders took up running in junior high after a torn labrum ended her run as a gymnast. Moving to the college ranks provided the kind of challenge Saunders - who was fourth in her class academically - sought on the track and in the classroom. “It’s more competitive than high school,” she said. “A lot of us, we’re used to winning the majority of races we enter. Now, I don’t even win in practice. I think it’s tempting to go to a smaller school and get a lot of wins, but I’d rather challenge myself against the best. “I didn’t make the Pac-12 finals and that was hard, but I’m mentally much more competitive now, seeing what it takes to succeed on this level.” Fitz anticipates continued growth and success. “As good an athlete as she is, she’s probably even better as a person,” he said. “She was fourth in her graduating class. She always took her academics very seriously. She’s down to earth; she’s deep. She was gracious when she won and gracious when she didn’t. “If she never ran another step, she’s a kid I would still be very proud of because of how she carries herself.”

WYOMING — Since leaving Wyoming High School as the Division II Ohio champion in the 3200 meters in 2012, Emily Stites has racked up two national titles. Last January, she won the USA Track & Field junior cross country championship in Saint Louis. More recently, it was the junior 5,000 meter run where she was 47 seconds ahead of the closest runner in Des Moines. The Iowa victory qualified Stites for the Pan Am Junior Games in August in Columbia. However, she’s passing on the trip to prepare for her sophomore fall season of cross country at William and Mary. The marketing major has opted for state-side training over South America. She prefers running on courses as opposed to circular paths and vividly recalls her victorious cross country win in Missouri. “I think I enjoy that more because there’s scenery and hills and different aspects to it,” Stites said. Overall, her initial year at William and Mary was chock full of team and individual success. “We went to nationals as a team in cross country,” Stites said. “For track, a couple girls went to the regional meet and another teammate went to Eugene (Oregon) with me for nationals.” At the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field championship meet in Oregon, Stites finished 10th in the 5,000 meters and was the top freshman. “It was incredible!” Stites said of the Eugene NCAA experience. “You could just tell there was an atmosphere in the stadium that everyone genuinely cared about the runners. Everyone knew what good times there were and how much effort it takes.” Visiting the “land of Nike” was just one of the perks of being extremely competitive in her first collegiate season. Not only did her success lead her western venues, it also landed her in a race in Europe. She was 26th in last fall’s NCAA cross country champion-

Emily Stites crosses the finish line in her final Wyoming race on a seemingly empty track to win the 3,200 state championship in Columbus on June 2, 2012. Stites beat her closest competitor in the Division II race by just over 19 seconds, had the fastest time among the three 3,200 meter division winners, and broke the state Division II meet record set in 2006 by over half a second.

ships and finished as an AllAmerican. After her winning run in Saint Louis, she was able to run in Poland at the World Junior championships where she was 23rd. “Until high school, I had never left the country,” Stites said. “Because of running I was able to go to different countries this year.” The Poland experience stands out because of the chilly conditions and the opportunity to race against teams from all over the globe, including Kenya. A steady runner at Wyoming who improved yearly, Stites did not expect to fare this well this early in her college career and credits her coaches and supporters. Though her schedule kept her busy from January through June, Stites monitored the Cowboys 2013 track season, which saw her younger brother, Ben, make the state meet in the 4x800 relay. “I’m really proud of all things he’s done,” Stites said. “I wasn’t able to see him run at state. That’s where I’m from; that’s my home.”

Wyoming names new AD WYOMING — Wyoming City Schools announced the appointment of Janice Wilking as the new athletic director for the district, pending approval by the board of education Monday, July 1, after deadline. Wilking is joining the community from Oak Hills Local School District, where she served as athletic director since 2004. Wilking will manage all athletic activities for Wyoming students in grades seven through 12. She will officially begin her tenure in the district on Aug. 1. In her role as athletic director for Oak Hills Local School District, she managed 26 varsity and more than 100 assistant coaches. In addition, she served as the vice president of the Greater Miami Conference and led a $1 million turf field capital cam-

paign and a $500,000 fitness center fundraising effort. She was the Title IV compliance coordinator for athletics and was once awarded the Ohio Athletic Administrator Horizon Award. Wilking is a 1998 graduate of The University of Charleston, where she earned a full athletic scholarship. She is an NIAAA Certified Athletic Administrator. “Janice’s passion for providing athletic and leadership opportunities for every student was a clear indicator of her ability to effectively manage the Wyoming athletic program,” said Superintendent Dr. Susan Lang in a news release. “We are excited to welcome her to our district and we look forward to working with her as she guides our student athletes in their athletic, academic and social opportunities.”

Readers share ideas for property The city of Sharonville is issuing a request for proposal for state-owned 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. What kind of business(es) would you like to see on this property? “First, I think think this property could have been reverted to a natural state and used/developed without any cost as a natural park or walking area. “Second, any development of this site will significantly impact traffic to and through the adjacent neighborhood area.

If we don’t stop the power grabs, we will suffer the fate of many previous societies. Perhaps the best method would be to make it profitable to hire workers again. Workers prosper when there is competition for their services, not when they are competing with one another for low paying jobs. This way a healthy society becomes a reality and permanence eliminates unhealthy politics. We should also return to the Constitution.

“Because he planned to do this by securing that particular job, I think he’s a traitor. However, having said that, I wonder if he hasn’t done us a favor by calling attention to the unnecessary spying on Americans. “It seems to be another infringement on our rights.

Cyndi’s porcupine meatballs

Last month I did a cooking demo with friends Giovanna Trimpe, author of “Holy Chow,” and Annie Mitchell, news director at Sacred Heart Radio, at the CincItalia festival at Harvest Home Park. Annie made these delicious meatballs as an appetizer. No kidding, these are simple and really good. Annie told me she grew up with these meatballs that her mom, Cyndi, made for them. “It’s one of my favorite meals from childhood until now. We eat them with mashed potatoes and succotash,” she

(optional, but recommended)

Roll the meat mixture into balls and place them in the sauce; roll them around in sauce to make sure they’re covered. Cook over medium heat. If you make small meatballs, cook them for 25-30 minutes after the sauce starts bubbling. If you make larger meatballs (the kind that a toothpick couldn’t handle) cook them for about an hour after bubbling.

Be careful when getting ‘free’ credit score

These days it’s not only important to carefully check your credit reports regularly, it’s a good idea to know your credit score. You need to know it before buying anything on credit. But while many websites claim to offer free or low-cost credit scores, unless you’re careful it could end up costing you more than you expected. Elaine Huntley, of Covington, found a website offering a low-cost

company and asked credit score. “It why they took nearstated for a dolly $30 each month. lar you could get “They said by checkthree credit ing the spot that said scores. So, they a dollar, I automatasked me for my ically agreed to the credit card numterms, but there ber and I gave it were no terms to them.

Huntley called the

FINE FORGIVENESS

Huntley searched the Internet and found she’s not the only one who feels misled by that company. “I went on the Internet and I pulled them up online and there are more than 150 complaints against them, where they’ve done this same thing to people – charged them without their knowledge,” Huntley said. I checked the website and found the charges are disclosed but they’re very easy to miss. In fact, the Better Business Bureau

has more than 2,000 complaints about that company. The BBB says customers complain they don’t understand the requirement to cancel within seven days. In addition, the BBB says consumers don’t understand they are agreeing to a monthly membership. Huntley filed a police report and has disputed the charges with her bank. My advice, if you want your credit score and credit monitoring,

you can get both without paying anything. There’s a company called Credit Karma that, for free, provides your score and monitors your credit so you’re alerted every time someone accesses your credit report. You can sign up at www.creditkarma.com. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12. Write to him at 12 WKRC-TV, 1906 Highland Ave., Cincinnati 45219.

UC Blue Ash expands clinical research program Beginning this fall, the Clinical Research program at the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College is doubling the number of classes to accommodate more students. Clinical research is a one-year certificate program designed for working professionals who want to advance their career in clinical research coordination, clinical data management, safety, regulatory affairs, or quality assurance. Students who enroll should have a bachelor’s degree or previous experience in clinical research. The program has been growing in popularity and was at capacity last year, with more than 25 students. This year there will be additional course offerings that provide more options for students. “This will be the first time we have offered both in-person and hybrid options,” said Karen King, a biology profes-

sor who oversees the Clinical Research program at UC Blue Ash. The hybrid courses provide a mix of online classes with three inperson classes per semester. King attributes the increased demand to word of mouth about the quality of the Clinical Research program. Several companies have sent their current employees or recruited new staff through the program over the past 14 years with excellent results. Wendy Shoger, director of clinical research development for Apex Eye in Cincinnati, has found it to be a great resource. “We have developed a flexible, part-time apprentice program where we have attracted several students from the Clinical Research program at UC Blue Ash,” she said. “Compared to academic and hospitalbased research, we are smaller, but still need

high-quality resources. This program has been a win/win for both.” Students in the program occasionally come from organizations outside the region, such as the Cleveland Clinic, but most work locally. Meredith Dees is a regulatory specialist II for CTI Clinical Trial and Consulting Services, which is headquartered in Blue Ash. “While I have a BS and MS in Biology, I had little experience in the field of clinical research. This program helped me understand what goes into a clinical research study from all levels – site, sponsor, and a Contract Research Organization,” Dees said. For more information about the Clinical Research program at UC Blue Ash College, contact Karen King at 513745-5617 or Karen.king@uc.edu. The application deadline for the 2013 fall semester at UC Blue Ash is July 15.

Uncovering hidden dangers in aging loved ones’ homes Local senior care experts are encouraging adult children to add a simple, yet important duty to their list of summer chores: Conduct a “look and see” inspection of their parent’s home. “Many seniors and their families don’t think about the fact that homes must adapt to the changing needs of seniors as they age until an accident happens,” said Bruce Hobbs, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care office serving Hamilton County.

“There are many potential hazards that could force seniors to lose their independence. Important safety areas to highlight in a senior’s home run the gamut from accessibility to lighting to trip and fall hazards. A lack of attention to those details can jeopardize an older adult’s ability to remain at home,” Hobbs said. Many home safety improvements are simple and inexpensive, experts say. Convincing seniors, on the other hand, is another story. Danise Levine, assistant director of the IDEA Center at the SUNY (State University of New York) Buffalo School of Architecture, said that denial often comes into play with seniors. “We see a lot of seniors who don’t want to admit they’re getting older so they don’t want to make changes in their homes,” Levine said. “Secondly, consumer education is an issue. If older adults do need help they often don’t know where to go or how much things cost.” Hobbs said it’s important to identify various safety pitfalls from poor lighting to the need for adaptive devices in a home. While many fixes are simple and inexpen-

sive, others might involve a remodeling project to help a senior remain at home. “That first, important step is to make an objective assessment of what needs to be done to keep them at home,” Hobbs said. “It’s one of the most important services that Home Instead Senior Care provides.” For more information or to obtain a free home safety checklist, contact the local Home Instead Senior Care Office at 513333-0563.

Look and see signs

Seniors and their families might want to look for the following opportunities when performing a home safety assessment: » Examine dark pathways, corners and other areas where seniors regularly walk or read. Make sure all areas of the home have adequate lighting. Timed and motion-sensor lights outdoors can illuminate potentially dangerous pathways. Inside, consider Ott-Lites – which provide a high-intensity beam for doing detail work. Make sure that hallways and stairs are properly lit. » Avoid monochromatic color schemes. Contrast can help seniors

with failing eyesight better navigate their homes. Large red and blue buttons over hot and cold water faucet controls will help prevent dangerous mistakes. A dark green or brown toilet seat and vinyl tape around the shower will make those fixtures more easily distinguished. Kitchen counter tops should contrast with floors as well. » Look for ways to reorganize. Mom always put the black stew pot under the stove to keep the kids from breaking it. Perhaps now it belongs on a shelf beside the stove. Who says the eggs must go in the egg tray of the refrigerator? Perhaps it’s easier for dad to handle them if they’re stored in the meat tray. If that hallway table, which has always been a permanent fixture, is becoming a dangerous obstacle, relocate it. » Look behind closed doors. Many seniors will close off parts of a house they no longer use. Be sure to check those areas regularly for mold or water damage. Don’t close vents to crawl spaces. » Look for ways to simplify your senior’s life. Talk to your parents about why and how they do things then look for

ways to simplify their lives. If your Mom’s immaculate floors are now regularly dirty, think about how she’s been doing that job all these years and offer options. Rather than a heavy mop and bucket, investigate light-weight, all-in-one mops. If your senior is replacing appliances, look for smooth-top stoves and refrigerators with water and ice on the outside. Change door knobs to levers, or purchase grips that can go on conventional knobs. Convert single-bulb light fixtures to multiple bulbs so seniors still have light when one bulb burns out. » Consider security. Think about the potential dangers that lurk within your loved one’s home. Lock-in switches on thermostats and stoves will keep seniors with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease from harming themselves. Help them manage in their environment by installing a cordless intercom. » Keep an eye out for damage. Watch for signs that a senior is adapting his or her behavior to the environment. Look for towel bars or window sills that are pulling away or shower curtains that have torn from seniors using them to grab

onto. » Look for ways to make entries safe. Make sure that railings into a home are in good repair and that steps and sidewalks are not damaged. Or eliminate steps altogether. Make sure that doors into a home can be set to stay open for carrying groceries and other items in and out. Install remote control locks. » Is clutter taking over? Messy conditions and broken items are important warning signs. Remove area rugs and stacks of newspapers and magazines, or other potential obstacles. » Contact a professional senior-care service, such as Home Instead Senior Care, which can conduct a home safety assessment and serve as a second set of eyes for older adults. (This list was adapted from the home safety checklist developed by Home Instead Senior Care and enhanced in cooperation with the SUNY Buffalo School of Architecture IDEA Center, the National Association of Home Builders—Remodelers CAPS (Certified Aging in Place Specialists), the National Aging in Place Council, and agingin-place consultant Louis Tenenbaum.)

Students join to fight pediatric cancer Top: A group photo of the area high school students who joined in the Night for the Fight event at Cintas Center April 13. They raised $55,000 for charities to fund the fight against pediatric cancer. THANKS TO CANCERFREE KIDS The Night for the Fight leadership team included: Hannah Kohne, Reading; Sarah Huster, Evendale; Michelle Strizak, Evendale; Maggie Lohmann, Springfield Township; Emily Beitman, West Chester Township; Kelly Higgins, Montgomery; Shayna Flannery, Loveland; Callie Buck, Loveland; Michelle Rigney, Loveland; Jillian Schmidt, Forest Park; Jill O'Bryan, Mason; Chelsea Kavanaugh, Mason; Bailey Venner, Indian Hill; Laura Jansing, Evendale; Emily McGill, Loveland; Sydney Armstrong, Deer Park; Claire Husting, Mason; Maria Baglie, Liberty Township; Stacey Pitman, Loveland, and Rian Boland, Sharonville/Evendale. THANKS TO CANCERFREE KIDS

loveland@communitypress.com

Several Loveland kids gathered in Cintas Center at Xavier University earlier this spring to bring awareness to pediatric cancer. The 13-hour overnight, Night for the Fight, helped benefit local charity organizations whose focus is funding pediatric cancer research. Loveland based CancerFree KIDS is one of the charities their efforts helped benefit. CancerFree KIDS is based on the belief that one day every child can be cancer-free. Founded in 2002, the CancerFree KIDS mission is to fund life-saving research on childhood cancers. Since being founded 10 years ago, CancerFree KIDS has already granted

more than $1,300,000 for childhood cancer research. The high school students raised more than $55,000 for the event. The other charities that benefitted from the Night for the Fight event were The Cure Starts Now Foundation and The Jeffrey Thomas Hayden Foundation. This event was born through a collaboration of these Cincinnati-based charities focused on funding pediatric cancer research. An adult planning committee and student leaders from local high schools developed the Night for the Fight event. The overnight event included a balance of fun activities with education, motivation and inspiration. Raising money was

only one objective. Helping the students connect personally to the work being done to end all cancers was another objective. They are the next generation ready to do battle as financial supporters, research scientists, nurses and doctors in hopes their children will never have to face cancer. The following high school students from Loveland participated in the April 13, Night for the Fight event: Shayna Flannery, Callie Buck, Michelle Rigney, Emily McGill and Stacey Pitman.

PWC educates elderly homeowners on fall prevention One out of three Americans 65 years and older fall each year. In the city of Cincinnati alone, 2,300 calls were made to 911 reporting a fall. In Hamilton County the number of falls from 2004 to 2011 has risen 23 percent and that number is constantly increasing. With 48 percent of these falls happening at home, People Working Cooperatively is looking for ways to make prevention a household name. PWC is a 38-year-old non-profit that offers home repairs, weatherization and modifications for low income elderly and disabled homeowners. Its for-profit social enterprise, Whole Home, offers home modifications and aging in place solutions for anyone at any income level. White Oak resident Ron Henlein of People Working Cooperative has been researching local and national fall rates and is putting together a plan to reduce falls in the Tristate area. Some of the groups PWC is collaborating with for the new program include Hamilton County

Fall Prevention Task Force, the city of Cincinnati, Mercy, TriHealth, Greater Cincinnati Foundation, Visiting Nurses Association and others. “Specifically, PWC is heavily involved in developing a 'Fall Prevention' program for seniors; this will include an in-home safety checklist and recommendations to assure the individual is aware of the high 'fall risk' areas throughout the home,” Henlein said. “Falls are not a natural part of aging and changes such as grab bars in the bath, banisters on all steps along with proper lighting, elimination of area rugs which are in poor condition, night lighting from the bedroom to the bathroom all can substantially reduce your chances of experiencing a fall.” PWC’s social enterprise, Whole Home, offers seniors tips on how to keep fall free. PWC offers lowincome homeowners home modifications to help them live safely in their home, where they want to be. “PWC and Whole Home have been engaged in a

huge amount of outreach to help keep elderly people safe ... over 1,000 people year to date that we’ve educated on fall prevention so far,” Henlein said. “People need to understand that there is a huge tsunami that began to hit this country in 2011 as the baby boomers began to turn 65 years old. This tsunami will gain enormous momentum throughout the upcoming years as 10,000 boomers turn 65 every day through 2030,” he said. “The shift in the age of our population will bring major reform in healthcare and governmental programs to support these individuals as over 20 percent of all citizens in the United States will be over 65.” “The need for fall prevention is growing and becoming a large issue for our community. PWC and Whole Home are working to keep our elderly family members, friends, and neighbors safe in their homes.” For more information contact Ron Henlein at henleinr@pwchomerepairs.org or call (513) 4825111.
