Pups lift spirits at Maple Knoll Village By Kelly McBride

A regular visitor to Maple Knoll Village leaves residents, staff and volunteers smiling, and a tail wagging. It’s part of pet therapy, where a volunteer visits throughout the campus, with a dog that’s been specially trained. On a recent Wednesday, Denise Bien brought Hunter, a 5-year-old beagle that hopped a ride in a wheelchair.

or monthly, to raise the spirits of those who might be having a tough day, or stir memories of a family pet long ago. Those memories were stirred in residents of Maple Knoll’s memory support wing, as well as the newly opened hospice corridor. Jim Rohrer was spending time with his wife, Nancy, who is in the hospice wing at Maple Knoll.

Giving Families teaches kids how, why to help By Kelly McBride

WYOMING — A Wyoming business has focused on giving as a family event. Giving Families, founded by Beth Nowak, has short-term and long-term goals. In the short term, it creates a fun, educational bonding in which families can learn about local nonprofits and

support causes that are important to them, Nowak said. Long-term benefits are habits that children will take with them into adulthood, Nowak said. “Research shows that sharing moments of giving with children significantly increases the likelihood that they will give as adults as the ‘helper’s high’

A westside family farm has harvested a produce stand in Sharonville each weekend. Fruits and vegetables from Burwinkel Farms will be sold on Saturdays, from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Sundays from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., in the lot behind Cheviot Savings Bank, 11186 Reading Road. Homegrown produce includes: sweet corn in yellow, white and bicolor; tomatoes in green, red, yellow, cherry; potatoes; stringless green beans; zucchini; yellow squash;, cucumbers; okra; pickles; cabbage; onions; bell peppers; hungarian peppers; jalapenos; sweet italian bull horn peppers; black berries; plums; peaches; apples; indiana melons; watermelons, and tomatillos. “As the summer progresses, we are able to have more of a variety of our fruits and vegetables,” Pollard said. “Some fruits and vegetables don’t produce this early in the season, and we have them later in August, such as apples.” Burwinkel Farms is a third-generation family farm in Southwest Ohio that specializes in sweet corn. “We are completely family operated,” Pollard said. “We strive to provide the highest quality produce to our customers at the lowest price possible. “Every morning local teenagers and young adults help pick our corn fresh,” she said. “We also spend long, hot days in the garden to help maintain our fruits and vegetables. “We work hard throughout the year to be the best farmers around for the best customers around.” The main stand is in Ross, Ohio at 128/ Hamilton-Cleves Road. Customers can call 738-1145 to place orders for pick-up at the Sharonville location. “We do take orders ahead of time,” Pollard said, “to ensure we bring enough produce for customers each time.” For more about your community, visit Get regular Sharonville updates by signing up for our email newsletter.

Though she’s weak, she perked up noticeably when Hunter rolled into her room, and when Bien placed the pup in Nancy’s bed, she began to pet him. His tail wiggled and he laid his head on the bed, content with his friend. Nancy had always had dogs, and said she missed them. “I like his fuzziness,” she said as she pet Hunter. In the adjoining memory support wing, Dorothy Whitaker perked up when Hunter came for a visit. “I like petting him,” she said. Hunter liked it, too. Bien and her husband, Bill, adopted Hunter when he was about a year old. Bill had found the abandoned, starving puppy, and when no one claimed him, they took him in.

Public gets Free TV with no monthly bills

Federal law makes TV network giants broadcast Free TV signals regionally in crystal clear digital picture in all 50 states allowing U.S. households to pull in Free TV with a sleek $49 micro antenna device engineered to pull in nothing but Free TV channels with no cable, satellite or internet connection and no monthly bills

Who Gets Free TV: Listed below are the Cincinnati area zip codes that can get Free over the air TV channels. If you find the first two digits of your zip code immediately call: 1-888-752-7147 OHIO - Today’s announcement by CompTek has the Free TV Hotlines ringing off the hook. That’s because Cincinnati area residents who find their zip code listed in today’s publication are getting Free TV channels thanks to an amazing razor-thin invention called Clear-Cast®. Cincinnati area residents who call the Toll Free Hotlines before the 48-hour order deadline to get Clear-Cast can pull in Free TV channels with crystal clear digital picture and no monthly bills. This announcement is being so widely advertised because a U.S. Federal law makes TV broadcasters transmit their signals in digital format, which allows everyone to receive these over-theair digital signals for free with no monthly bills. Here’s how it works. Clear-Cast, the sleek micro antenna device with advanced technology links up directly to pull in the Free TV signals being broadcast in your area with crystal clear digital picture and no monthly bills. Clear-Cast was invented by a renowned NASA Space Technology Hall of Fame scientist who currently holds 23 U.S. Gov’t issued patents. For the past 20 years, he has specialized in developing antenna systems for NASA, Motorola, XM Satellite Radio and companies around the world. His latest patent-pending invention, Clear-Cast, is a sleek micro antenna device engineered to pull in the Free TV signals through advanced technology with no cable, satellite or internet connection and no monthly bills. “Clear-Cast is being released to the general public because we just don’t think people should keep paying for TV when they can get it for free,” said Conrad Miller, Manager of Operations at CompTek. “There’s never a monthly bill to pay and all the channels you get with Clear-Cast are absolutely free. So you see, Clear-Cast is not like cable or satellite. It was engineered to access solely the over-the-air signals that include all the top rated national and regional networks, like ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, CW and about 90% of the most watched TV shows like America’s Got Talent, NCIS, 60 Minutes, American Idol, The Big Bang Theory, The Bachelorette, Person of Interest, CSI, The Mentalist, Two and a Half Men, Sunday Night Football plus news, weather and more all for free with no monthly bills,” Miller said. “That’s why Clear-Cast is such a great alternative for everyone who is sick and tired of paying expensive cable and satellite bills every month,” he said. “People who get Clear-Cast will say it feels like getting an extra paycheck every month. You see, with Clear-Cast you’ll receive free over-the-air broadcast channels with crystal clear digital picture, not the cable or satellite only channels. So being able to eliminate those channels puts all the money you were spending back in your pocket every month,” Miller said. And here’s the best part. The sleek micro antenna device called Clear-Cast is so technically advanced it pulls in even more of the channels being broadcast in your area for Free with no monthly bills. That way you can channel surf through the favorite TV shows. The number of shows and channels you’ll get depends on where you live. People living in large metropolitan areas may get up to 53 static-free channels, while people in outlying areas will get less. That means even if you’re in a rural area that just pulls in NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX and PBS broadcasts there’s hundreds of shows each year to watch for free. Consumers report that the crystal clear picture quality with Clear-Cast is the best they’ve ever seen. That’s because you get virtually all pure uncompressed signals direct from the broadcasters for free. Clear-Cast was engineered to link up directly like a huge outdoor directional antenna but in a lightweight, slim-line package. Its sturdy copper alloy and polymer construction will most likely far outlast your TV. It just couldn’t be any easier to get Free overthe-air digital TV shows with Clear-Cast. Simply plug it into your TV, place Clear-Cast on a window pane and run autoscan. It works on virtually any model TV and is easily hidden out of sight behind a curtain or window treatment. Thousands of Cincinnati area residents are expected to call to get Clear-Cast because it just doesn’t make any sense to keep paying for TV when you can get hundreds of shows absolutely free. So, Cincinnati area residents lucky enough to find their zip code listed in today’s publication need to immediately call the Free TV Hotline before the 48-hour deadline to get Clear-Cast that pulls in Free TV with crystal clear digital picture. If lines are busy keep trying, all calls will be answered. !

How to get Free TV:

Listed below are the Cincinnati area zip codes that can get Free TV channels with no monthly bills. If you find the first two digits of your zip code immediately call 1-888-752-7147 beginning at precisely 8:30am this morning. Today’s announcement photo above shows just a handful of the major over-the-air broadcast networks you can receive with Clear-Cast for free. It saves a ton of money by not picking up expensive cable only channels like ESPN so there’s never a monthly bill. This is all possible because a U.S. Federal Law makes TV broadcasters transmit their signals in digital format, which allows everyone to use Clear-Cast to pull in Free TV channels with no monthly bills. CompTek is giving every U.S. household a 50% off discount to help cover the cost of Clear-Cast. Clear-Cast, the sleek micro antenna device is a one-time purchase that plugs in to your TV to pull in Free TV channels in crystal clear digital picture with no monthly bills. Each Clear-Cast normally costs $98, but U.S. households who beat the 48-hour deadline are authorized to get a 50% off discount for each Clear-Cast and cover just $ 49 and shipping as long as they call the Free TV Hotline at 1-888-752-7147 before the deadline ends or online at Trademarks and programs are the property of their respective owners and are not affiliated with or endorsing Clear-Cast.

Wyoming welcomes Wilking

New AD comes from Oak Hills By Tom Skeen

GREEN TWP. — After nine years as athletic director and 15 years at Oak Hills High School, Jan Wilking has accepted the athletic director position with Wyoming City Schools effective Aug. 1. The school board approved the move July 1. “Wyoming is a great community and they are in a fantastic league,” she said. “… I think anybody who has been around the Cincinnati area for any amount

of time certainly knows all the good things Wyoming has to offer.” In her role as athletic director at Oak Hills, she served as vice president of the Greater Miami Conference, led a $1 million turf field capital Wilking campaign and $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. “… There are a lot of great people who make up (the Oak Hills community),” Wilking said, “and I think when you look over

the last nine years and some of the things that those people have been able to do in terms of the facility upgrades and working to make Oak Hills competitive in our conference, I think those are some of the things I’m really proud of.” The process for finding Wilking’s replacement is underway and superintendent Todd Yohey hopes to have the candidates narrowed down as soon as possible. “We are currently in the process of establishing a search committee and accepting applications,” Yohey said. “We hope to begin the process as early as (the

week of July 1).” In her new role Wilking will manage all athletic activities for Wyoming students grades seven through 12. She is replacing former Wyoming athletic director Scott Kaufmann, who accepted the assistant principal/athletic director position at Lakota East High School in May. “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,” Wyoming Superintendent Dr. Susan Lang said in a press release announcing the move. “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.” While the Wilking family kids will still attend Oak Hills schools, Yohey wishes nothing but the best for his former athletic director in her new life venture. “We thank Mrs. Wilking for her many years of service to the student-athletes and coaches at Oak Hills High School,” he said. “Jan has set high standards for our athletic department and we wish her the best in her new position with Wyoming City Schools.”


Wyoming head coach Gerry Lackey speaks in the huddle during a Cowboys’ timeout at Walnut Hills June 24. SCOTT SPRINGER/COMMUNITY PRESS

Lackey’s ladies win summer league title By Scott Springer

As seasons continuously intermingle in prep sports, the Wyoming girls basketball team recently was involved in a summer league at Walnut Hills. Six teams overall took part as the Cowboys faced the likes of CHCA, Hughes, Shroder and split-Walnut squads in June. “We played last summer over at Winton Woods,” Wyoming coach Gerry Lackey said. “I just think it helps you to get out there and play.” The venture across the Norwood Lateral proved fruitful as Wyoming won the championship to take the first Walnut Hills summer league over the Walnut Navy squad. It was particularly helpful for Sarah LeBuhn to get involved. After playing as a freshman, a knee injury sat her down. Heading to her senior year, LeBuhn’s going to give it another go. “It was good for her to get some playing time prior to the season,” Lackey said. The Cowboys lost Morgan Cunningham from last year’s team due to graduation, but return an experienced group that includes sophomore Ashli O’Neal, sophomore Halley Stewart, senior Marta Stewart, senior Kelsey Brunsman, senior Natalie Burchard and junior Emily Wadds. “We have a number of people vying for that (Cunningham) position,” Lackey said. “Everything’s pretty much up

in the air. Obviously, we have some good players coming back but there’s always room for someone else to step in.” Driving the Cowboys bus again will be O’Neal. She averaged 9.0 points, 1.5 assists and 3.0 steals as a freshman. “She ran the show for us last year,” Lackey said. “She’s definitely a talent. It’s nice having a point guard that knows what to do with the ball. Ashli O’Neal plays a lot of AAU. Most of the girls are multi-sport. Emily Wadds, who was our main scorer last year, plays lacrosse.” Wadds, a 5-foot-11 center, scored 9.5 points and hauled down 6.7 rebounds per game last season, but is hurling the small ball into the net for now. Sharing athletes is commonplace at Division II Wyoming.

Where go the Republicans now? It has always surprised me that voters would openly adhere to a single party in a democracy, declaring their vote for that party no matter what. It is even more surprising in a Democracy where there are really only two parties in power. As an independent, I am concerned about the efforts of the Republican Party to alienate as many Americans as they can. I am concerned because a if they continue down the current path, we may soon have only one political party worth mentioning and that is not good for America.

know want women relegated to second class citizens, routinely earning less than men in the same jobs, and most men I know don’t want the government passing legislation that interferes with women’s reproductive rights. Leave women alone and tackle the deficit! On these points, there is a schizophrenic ideological gap on the right. On the one hand, conservatives claim to hate invasive big government, but support the government defining and enforcing rules on marriage, reproductive rights and other personal issues. Conservative Republicans often claim to have Christian values, but support the death penalty and guns (“Thou shalt not kill” apparently comes with an asterisk beside it in

some versions of the Bible). “Love thy Neighbor” does not extend as far as Mexico, apparently. The Republican Party must somehow reinvent itself if it is to survive. This does not mean moral laxity. There is plenty of room for conservative values in this country, and that is a good thing. These values must be consistent and fair, however – not a hodge-podge of conservative values twisted into good oldfashioned discrimination against a series of targets. Truly, that will weaken the conservative movement fast – Americans are good at recognizing hypocrisy when they see it. Bruce Healey is a resident of Indian Hill.

CH@TROOM July 3 question What do you think about the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that invalidated a section of the 17-year-old Defense of Marriage Act that denied federal benefits to married gays and lesbians in a dozen states? Do you agree or disagree with the decision? Why or why not?

“The Supreme Court made a decision that was ludicrous. Marriage can only exist between a man and a woman...God made it that way. Procreation cannot happen between two people of the same sex. Marriage cannot be redefined based on man’s whims; if this were so, we could redefine it much further. I do not want my tax dollars in the form of federal funds going to help support people in a so-called ‘marriage’ that are in a same-sex relationship. This is not marriage; plain and simple. “ J.S.

“I agree. I think it was inevitable. Married same sex partners should have same benefits as male/female married couples ... also, they should go through the same dissolution process when these marriages don’t work out. Same joy/same pain.” T.B.

“There is no reason that a gay or lesbian couple in a committed relationship should be denied the same things that my wife and I enjoy as a married man and woman. “If the church wants to say ‘no’ to religious ceremonies for homosexual couples, that’s their right. But the government has no right to dictate what consenting adults do in their personal lives. “What I find distasteful is the people that seem to be the most opposed to this are the people that might have “co-exist” bumper stickers on their cars. The people who preach tolerance and love thy neighbor and do unto others as you would have others do unto you. “But I guess that only ap-

plies to straight Christians ...” J.S.K.

“I agree wholeheartedly with the ruling against DOMA and am glad the Supreme Court got this right. Homosexuals must be allowed equal rights of all other minority groups in America who are so easily discriminated against by narrow-minded members of society. “It’s pretty sad that some religious conservatives so falsely look at this as a devaluing of their marriage.” TRog

“I think it is time to separate moral and religious issues from legal ones. “Given all the practical, legal concerns about health care, insurance, owning property, shared assets, tax filings, etc. I think any two people who chose to join together for life should be able to do so with the legal advantages and protections that civil marriage offers. “Everything else about that relationship is up to the individuals’ conscience and religious beliefs. J.R.B.

“First off I do not agree with the term ‘marriage’ for gays or lesbians. The term ‘marriage’ is a mutual relation of husband and wife. It is the institution whereby men and women are joined in a special kind of social and legal dependence for the purpose of founding and maintaining a family. “Why not use the term ‘Unity,’ which is a condition of harmony: ACCORD (a balanced interrelationship for a formal act or agree-

ment). From this, I feel that each individual state should rule on the benefits given to this ‘Unity’ term. “Today, businesses cannot make decisions without Big Brother interceding and putting larger burdens and cost upon them. Companies will soon have to comply that insurance will be mandatory for 50 employees or more or be penalized by fines; benefits are mandatory for so many hours per week working, etc., etc. “The more government gets involved with the private business side the more social we become. So I agree with the ruling.” D.J.

“Although I do not completely understand the lifestyle of gays and lesbians, I do understand that no one living in our great nation should ever be discriminated against for any reason. “Being married and living with your lifetime partner should be reason enough to have equal rights. Imagine if you, a straight person, could not receive the benefits due after your spouse’s death, or if you were not permitted to be with them in their hour of need. “Married couples are just that, couples who love, raise families and honor their vows. It is time to respect your fellow man and allow equal rights for all of those in a married, committed relationship.” J.B.

“The Supreme Court disappoints again. On landmark issues it always fails to deliver a decision that rises to the occasion, a decision fitting the stature we should expect from the Supreme Court. This decision waffles on states’ rights versus individual rights, failing to define any ‘new’ rights or to reaffirm ‘old’ rights. They seek to please people rather than rule on the issues according to the Constitutional limitations respected by this nation for over 220 years.”

By Kelly McBride

Sharonville has spruced up its adult patio at the Community Center, through a grant from the Duke Energy Foundation, and some hard-working volunteers. The $982 grant, which covered the entire cost of the plants, mulch and other landscaping additions, replaced an overgrown collection that had lined the outdoor patio. “We used to have knock-out roses, and they kept getting bigger,” program coordinator Denise Hinson said. “The thorns were growing, too.” “The patio is used by seniors who have a difficult time getting around,” program coordinator Sherri Newberry said. “This was a problem for them.” Maintenance operator Scott Lindner designed the landscaping, incorporating a Sharonville “S” design with small pebbles,

and replacing the rose bushes with coral bells, fine line buckthorn, bella anna hydrangeas and globe blue spruce shrubs.

Window boxes and hanging plants of petunias, along with a thermometer and hummingbird feeder, line the wall sepa-

rating the patio from the pool area at the Community Center. Several employees of Duke Energy came to Sharonville June 7 to plant the flowers and bushes, and mulch the area, as part of the company’s global service project. “The patio is an important aesthetic anchor to the Shaornville Community Center,” recreation director Sue Koetz said. The area connects the Adult Gather Room and the Craft Room. “I am very grateful to Duke for giving us this grant,” Koetz said. “It’s another in a series of excellent partnerships and sponsors that our staff work hard to secure for the benefit of the Sharonville community.” Mayor Kevin Hardman said he appreciates the Duke funding, as well as the hard work of volunteers Chase Whitehead, Sam Stevenson, Jonathan Lutz and John Montag. “This will be a pleasure for

our adults, who use this space in the summer, to enjoy the beautiful surroundings,” Hardman said. “We’re grateful for the contribution from Duke, to make the standard of living better for our residents.” Sharonville residents Tim Shaefer, Herb Dietz, Don Sand and Carl Adams were playing cards as the work was completed. “It’s relaxing,” Shaefer said. “I like it.” Adams said he liked the addition of the thermometer. “It’s a new, fresh, younger, contemporary look,” Dietz said. “It will be an asset to the Community Center,” Sand said. “We could play cards out there.” For more about your community, visit Get regular Sharonville updates by signing up for our email newsletter.

Crowd packs Village Square for Block the Sun 5K By Kelly McBride

More than 500 runners and walkers gathered at Glendale’s Village Square for a 5K run with a message of precaution. At 530, it drew 110 more participants than last year, and village residents cheered them on as they passed by. Glendale residents Bob and Candi Caress lost their son, Andy, to melanoma in 2010. Andy was a tennis player and graduate of Princeton High

Andy’s goal of wiping melanoma off the face of the planet through awareness, prevention and a cure,” Candi Caress said. “We want people to be aware that incidences of melanoma are increasing and prevention is key,” she said. “Limit exposure to the sun. “Do not use tanning booths. “Use at least SPF 3O if in the sun. “As our Sunscreen Squad Tshirts say: ‘Keep Calm and Get Your SPF On!’” The race began at 5:30 p.m.,

when the sun is less intense. The top three winners, overall, were: Bryan Jacobs, 17:37; Peter Curnutte, 18:45; and Tyer Waldie, 19:20. The foundation also sponsors a booth at the Western & Southern Tennis Tournament, where free sunscreen will be distributed. “Last year, our Sunscreen Squad passed out over 48,000 packets of sunscreen,” Candi Caress said. The group also donates sun-

screen to pools, recreation centers and tennis courts, and provides educational materials for teachers to use in the classroom. Earlier this year, ACMF donated $60,000 to the MD Anderson Cancer Center, which is dedicated to melanoma research.

Readers shares recipes for eggs, berry snack


Place in single layer in sprayed 9-inch by 13-inch pan. Sauté until soft in 2 tablespoons butter: ⁄2 cup diced bell pepper ⁄3 cup diced onion



Add and cook until bubbly: 1 can cream of mushroom soup (Jackie uses low-fat) 1 cup sour cream


1 heaping cup fresh raspberries or other berries or 1 cup frozen 21⁄4 cups natural apple juice, chilled (I used frozen, no sugar-added concentrate in equal parts concentrate and water) 2 packets unflavored gelatin (1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons) Honey/sweetener to taste, optional (I didn’t use any)

Cook berries and 11⁄2 cups juice at a gentle

boil until berries soften. Puree in blender. Sprinkle gelatin over rest of cold juice, give it a stir and let stand a minute or so until gelatin absorbs the water. Add this to blender mixture and blend until gelatin dissolves. Add sweetener if desired. Line an 8-inch by 8-inch pan with clear wrap, overlapping sides. Pour mixture in. Put in refrigerator until firm. Turn pan over, remove plastic and cut into squares. Store in refrigerator. Tip: Brush pan with water before lining with wrap. Wrap will stick easily.

Slice steak thinly against grain and serve with marinade. Tip: Tamari is a stronger tasting soy sauce and can be gluten free. You can use your favorite soy sauce. Regarding “light” soy sauce, read labels as some “light” sauces contain more sodium than you may want. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

Food drive coordinators hungry to help Post time for the June 8 Glendale Food on the Square event was officially 8 a.m. However, true to form, the committee members were in harness well before. Dave Conyers picked up the Valley Interfaith Food and Clothing Center van the night before and then arrived on the square at 6:30 a.m. to deliver an extra truck to transport all the donations back to Valley Interfaith. Police Chief Dave Warman had Evelyn already Perkins placed “no COLUMNIST parking” signs strategically to prevent accidents as people drove up. This is the first time in recent years that rain was not predicted. The original date was set for June 1, but since that was the Memorial Day weekend and it was supposed to rain, Dave decided to move things to the next Saturday and it was a smart decision; the weather was perfect. Dave reported that last year’s donations were worth $4,700. He hoped to reach $5,000 this year, and although that didn’t happen, I have to say, it wasn’t bad. Dave did his price checks at Costco and Kroger to get a reasonable estimate of the value of this year’s collection. It totaled $4,561,

but eight very large bags of clothes were also delivered to Valley Interfaith. This response was remarkable when you consider the back-toback devastation that occurred just prior to the food drive. Two hundred mile-per-hour winds struck Moore, OK, May 20, and less than two weeks later tornadoes and flash floods hit Oklahoma City. Many people from our area donated to help those citizens and then donated more at the

Food on the Square to help our own neighbors who fight against hunger every day. Even at an early hour there was already an abundance of Hunts and Heinz, Krogers and Kellogs, Post, Van Camp and Campbell, Dole, Kraft, paper goods, clothing and personal care items. Things came packaged in tins, plastic, cardboard and cellophane. And people kept coming. If you could not attend, you missed a good time and the opportunity

to contribute for a good cause. The committee members are the most convivial group you ever want to meet. It is always a festive occasion when they get together. It was grass cutting weather, so naturally talk turned to lawn mowers. It’s amusing to us when we hear younger people refer to a motorized lawn mower that you walk behind as a push mower. They think if you are not riding it, it is a push mower. We joked about the days when you really
