Sharonville council at odds over unbalanced budget

By Kelly McBride

Sharonville continues to wrestle with its 2011 budget after city council voted against the passage of a version presented at its July 13 meeting. Issues included capital projects and equipment that have become “increasingly expensive, outpacing the revenues available after supporting operating expenses,” according to a budget oversight committee document. A balanced budget wasn’t presented, Councilwoman Vicki Hoppe said, and if it were passed, “we’d have to be using our rainy day fund.” Potential solutions to the budg-

et crunch that were not recommended by the city administration included selling cityowned property, refinancing city debt and a volHardman untary pay decrease for elected officials. Among suggestions that administrators supported were: • reducing recreation center hours, which would save more than $23,000; • closing the west side pool and recreation center which would save $35,400; • instituting a hiring freeze;

• cutting 2010 budgets by 2 percent; • suspending four in-car police cruiser cameras, which would save $24,000; and • suspending the Reading Road capital project to save $120,000 and the Sharon Road capital project to save $100,000. Three council members voted against the proposal, and three supported the measure. Councilmen Greg Pugh, Paul Schmidt and Rob Tankersley voted in favor of the measure. Councilman Kerry Rabe was not present at the meeting. Council President Kevin Hardman broke the tie, joining councilmembers Ed Cunningham,


“We have looked at every possible area. But I’m not inclined to ask residents to raise taxes.” Kevin Hardman Sharonville council president Janey Kattelman and Vicki Hoppe in voting no. “I don’t want to see services reduced,” Kattelman said. Instead, she said she’d support a plan to cut hours and institute furloughs. “We would have been wise to take this to the citizens and let them vote,” she said. “We have looked at every possible area,” Hardman said. “But I’m not inclined to ask residents to raise taxes.” “It doesn’t work,” Mayor Virgil Lovitt said of the budget proposal. “We can’t do this without cutting into services,” he said. “We have trimmed a lot over the last two years,” he said. “But we can’t reduce any more without it being really noticed.”

Two men convicted of separate incidents of public indecency in northeast Hamilton County cities have been sentenced to jail and/or fines. On July 27: • Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Bernie Bouchard sentenced Scott McCreary, 23, of Sharonville, to $50 in fines and $104 in court costs after McCreary pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of public indecency. Blue Ash police say a woman reported that McCreary exposed himself to her at the Kmart on Hunt Road July 14. McCreary told police he was “adjusting himself” and didn’t think that his pants were open. • Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Fanon Rucker sentenced Larry Cottrell, 35, of Fayetteville, to 30 days in the county jail, $250 in fines and $104 in court costs after Cottrell pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of public indecency. Montgomery police say Cottrell exposed himself to children at a lemonade stand on Southwind Drive July 17. Cottrell was given credit for the 10 days he’d already served in jail. Public indecency can be prosecuted as a felony punishable with prison time. It cannot be expunged from an offender’s criminal record.

Unpinching pennies Princeton still among nation’s best in fundraiser By Kelly McBride

Princeton High School, a national leader in fundraising for the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society among high schools, has placed third in the nation for the 20092010 school year. Though the goal of $42,010 came up short, the $30,560 they gathered was hard-earned, according to Princeton teacher Lonnie Dusch, one of the organizers of the school’s efforts in the Olive Garden Pasta for Pennies program.

“There were a number of factors that brought our total money raised down this year from the $38,378 raised in 2009,” he said. “The largest is probably the economy. “Everyone in the Princeton district is feeling the effects of a tough economy, and we were thrilled that so many of them were able to be as generous as they were this year.” Individual donations were smaller than in past years, however. “They were generous, they gave,” Dusch said. “They just

weren’t able to give quite as much this year.” It was enough to place third in the nation. “It’s great to see Princeton students so involved with the campaign,” said Betsy Ruwe, school and youth campaign manager for the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society. “As a school, they always invest so much time and effort into raising money and we appreciate that. “They also volunteer at other LLS events,” she said, “and we can always count on them to do a great job.”

Glendale man to pedal 328 miles for cancer research By Kelly McBride

A Glendale resident who has taken up bicycle riding in the past several years will use that training to help raise money for cancer research. John Orben, who lost his mother to cancer in 2006, pedaled 328 miles, from Cleveland to Cincinnati, as part of the American Cancer Society’s Pan Ohio Hope Ride. Orben, with the help of Glendale businesses Piazza Discepoli Wine

Merchants and the Cock and Bull, has raised $2,795 to benefit the society’s Hope Lodges and other critical cancer programs. He rides an average of 100-150 miles each week. He started on the ground, hopping on his bike after his exercise gym closed about eight years ago. His initial goal was to complete a short ride “and not be out of breath,” Orben said. Then the courses grew longer and longer. In the meantime, “my mother was diagnosed with cancer and I

moved in to help my mom.” She passed away in 2006. “I continued riding my bike,” he said. “It was a hard time and that was an outlet for me.” Today, he trains at an athletic pace. Orben and his wife, Nancy, enjoy taking long bike trips, and he’s part of the Cincinnati Cycle Club. He rode a shuttle bus to Cleveland July 29 for the ride to Cincinnati, covering 328 miles in four days.

Fire academy grads take first step to battling blazes By Kelly McBride

A group of eight participants completed a basic firefighting class in a first academic collaboration among three departments. The Glendale-Wyoming Citizen Fire Academy class, which included instruction from Lockland Fire Chief James Benjamin as well as Glendale Fire Chief Dave Moore and Wyoming Fire Chief Robert Rielage, was at Scarlet Oaks. Upon completion, the group of eight was certified as firefighter 1A, the most basic level recognized by the state of Ohio. Percy Fleming of Wyoming was one of the participants, and he plans to continue with his training. “I do plan to make a career out of firefighting,” Fleming said. “I thought it was an excellent opportunity and I appreciate that it was given as a free service,” he said. Fleming said the hands-

Film tracks trainwreck of blind dating By Kelly McBride

A Glendale resident, along with a team of five others, created a short film in 48 hours as part of an international competition. Dan Denegre and the other members of Flying Pig Films set up camp in Glendale, writing, filming and editing a romantic comedy that included local residents and friends. The main characters were set up on a blind date, and shared stories with each other about previous blind dates and the horror stories that grew from them. It was a category considered tough, but Denegre said his group considered it a challenge. “We thought we could get something genuine and honest in the film,” he said. The process was a blitz, with brainstorming to set the tone, then 21 hours of straight shooting that

business. It was interesting.” She included photos of the crew at work on the Bluebird Bakery and Cafe’s Facebook page. Finally, the project was written, acted and edited, with vignettes scripted from the brainstorming session. It was delivered with eight minutes to spiare. The crew is awaiting word on the competition in the coming weeks. Though the films charac-

brought the group into the final hours of the competition. “It was grueling,” Denegre said. “It was a really intensely paced production throughout the whole day.” Most of Saturday was spent at the Bluebird Bakery and Cafe, where owner Jenny Dennis shared space with the filmmakers. “The customers were good about it,” Dennis said. “We just went about our

ters were happy, the film didn’t have the happy ending typical of or hoped for in a romance, Denegre said. “They were happy at the end of the movie, and it went out on a high note,” Denegre said of the film, titled “Trainwrecks.” “But every date (they shared with each other) was a train wreck.” “An actual train takes out the main characters.” The end.

10 p.m.. After working up an appetite in the pool, the crowd of about 60 kids ages 8 and older headed indoors for pizza and games. Among them was a silly game that has gained the status of tradition after it was a hit a few years ago. In the game Beautiful Felicia, a male camp counselor dresses as a woman and campers have to get past other staff members to save her. “The kids get a kick out of this,” Robertson said.

To reach Felicia, they have to run across the gym, dodging balls from the camp counselors. That’s followed by silly story time. The sleepover “is a onetime deal, said Jimmy Robertson, camp administrator and program coordinator. “This is the highlight of the summer.” Kids ages 11 and over have the option of staying up all night, and the younger set says good night around 1 a.m. The party ends at 8 a.m., when the campers return home. “We had a busy summer, with a lot of participation and good weather,” Robertson said. “And we have much more ahead, with new programs for the fall.” The recreation department’s summer programs end Friday, Aug. 6, and head into fall.

Sycamore Township residents will soon have more recycling options. Township Trustees decided to install two large recycling bins at the location of the old north fire station on Solzman Road. Township road superintendent Tracy Kellums recommended the addition of the two bins because of the increasing amount of recyclable materials that are overflowing the four bins at the township administration building at 8540 Kenwood Road. The recycling locations in Sycamore Township are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and are open to the public. The board of trustees also adopted a home main-

Saunders, Heaton lead Princeton By Tony Meale


Princeton High School junior Claudia Saunders, who won a state title in the 100 hurdles in June, is the top cross country returner for the Lady Vikings this fall. She finished sixth at the state championships as a sophomore.

For two teams that both finished eighth at the Greater Miami Conference Meet last year, the Princeton High School cross country squads should be an exciting bunch to watch this season. Junior Claudia Saunders, fresh off a state title in track the 100 hurdles (14.49), is the top returner for the Lady Vikings. “She (hasn’t gotten) a lot of summer training in due to lingering shin splints from track,” head coach Jim Crumpler said. “But if she can get a full season of training in, I expect an even better year than last year.” Saunders sat out most of last season before qualifying for the state meet, where she finished sixth (18:42.96). Crumpler said Saunders has a legitimate shot at a state title – provided she stays healthy – and that Glen Este senior Michelle Thomas has to be considered the favorite. Thomas finished fourth at state last year (18:19.82)

and won a state title in track in the 3,200 (10:46.59) in June. “It’s not going to be easy,” Crumpler said of Saunders’ quest, “but she’s got a shot.” Aside from Saunders, the Lady Vikings lack experience; they are counting on

Experience the key for Cowboys golf By Mark Chalifoux

The Wyoming High School boys’ golf team should be strong again in 2010 as the Cowboys return six of their top seven golfers from a 2009 team that went 21-3 and finished second in the CHL. “We’re looking forward to having a good year,” head coach Rod Crider said. “We had a decent season last year to build on but fell short of our goals to win the conference and go to state.” Crider said he expects another dogfight in the CHL this season as the defending champion Taylor returns most of their team and Indian Hill, who was a close third-place finisher in 2009, will also be strong again. The team returns their top four players in Joe Dulemba, Zach Galluzzo, Brian Spitzig and Adam Crider. All of them averaged a 42 or under in 2009, as Spitzig led the pack with a 39.8 average and Dulemba was a hair behind with a 39.9. Crider averaged an even 40 and Galluzzo averaged a 42. All four earned all-conference honors, with Spitzig, Dulemba and Crider earning first team nods and Galluzzo earning a second team nod. Crider said he expects his team to be stronger this season as the seniors want to go out with a bang. “Our desire is to compete and we want to leverage all the experience we have into success,” he said. “Golf is a funny game; you don’t know how it will shake out until the final putt drops, but we have a lot of guys back that played big holes for us in 2009.” Crider said the final two

several freshmen, most notably Lindsey Myers. “Our strength is the leadership and experience that Claudia brings,” Crumpler said. “She brings a lot of excitement to the team.” Crumpler said he’d be happy if the Lady Vikings finish in the top half of the GMC. The boys’ team, meanwhile, returns a bevy of experienced runners. Senior Sam Heaton, who fell just shy of state last year, headlines the group. Joining the first-team allleague performer are seniors Marcus Donaldson and Corey Selmon, as well as juniors Matt Smith and Brian Myers. Donaldson is a four-year contributor to the Vikings’ cross country team, while Selmon, a state-qualifying wrestler, returns for his second year with the program. Crumpler hopes the Vikings finish in the top three at the GMC meet, advance to regionals as a team and get at least one state-qualifier – likely Heaton. “The biggest thing is staying healthy, and a lot of

know how each other operates. We fell short of our goals last year so we have to try to get there this season.” Crider said the boys are dedicating their season to Rich Beck, the Wyoming student who passed away in the spring. “The kids are fired up, I’m fired up, we’re looking forward to the start of the season. We had some voluntary stuff over the summer and we had 100 percent turnout so I’m really excited for the season.”

Several other local runners return to action this fall: • CHCA will be led by senior Stephen Cessler and juniors Brian Taylor, Tanner Kuremsky and Tyler Vonderhaar; the girls’ team will be led by juniors Emily Walton and Elizabeth Lyle and sophomores Elaina Balzano and Jessica Tandoc • Moeller will be led by senior Patrick McCarty, Tom Tussey and Brendan Walsh, as well as juniors Jake Haigis and Matt Ernstes • Mount Notre Dame will be led by seniors Elizabeth Deutsch, Hanna Dittrich and Allison Weaver, as well as junior Katelyn Sussli • Ursuline will be led by senior Tricia Hengehold and Pam Showman, as well as juniors Dani Dailey, Katrina Maricocchi, Nicole Volpenhein and Katie Kaes • Wyoming will be led by senior Michael Sagan, juniors Seth Gold and Alex Mangas; the girls’ team will led be sophomore Sammy Schwarz, juniors Emily Stites and Brett Miller and senior Lucy Hackett that has to do with summer training,” Crumpler said. “We’re trying to stay consistent. If we can get everybody in the right direction, we should have a successful season.”

Concussion testing

Dr. John Brannan of Beacon Orthopedics is launching pre-season concussion testing for fall sports in local schools. The computerized program, called ImPACT, is a neuropsychiatric evaluation. It is non-invasive and usually takes less than 10 minutes. The preseason testing measures baseline data; if the athlete suffers a concussion during the season, this testing serves as a comparison for follow-up care. The coach, head athletic trainer and school IT person set up the program in a class school room or training room. For more information about the concussion program, contact 354-3700 or

Crusaders golf returns stacked lineup The Moeller High School golf team features one of the most experienced lineups in program history as the Crusaders return seven of their top eight players from 2009’s state-qualifying team. “This could be a really, really good team,” head coach Rick Bohne said. “There’s still a lot of work that needs to be done and golf is a funny game because there’s no defense. Once we get into the season and get some identity as these guys develop a sense of who they are as a team,

we can do pretty well.” Moeller has been to the state tournament for eight consecutive seasons, the longest active streak in Division I, and Moeller has the talent to return to the state tournament again in 2010. The Crusaders return a number of standout players, led by 2009 state runner-up Andrew Dorn. “It’s hard to believe he’s a senior,” Bohne said. “He will probably graduate as the best player we’ve ever had. He’s been terrific for us.” Bohne said the returning players have all had productive summers. Michael Wolf, another standout for

Moeller, has won several national tournaments. Michael Irwin is another returning standout for the Crusaders who has also had a strong summer, according to Bohne. Alex Pietrandrea won the Junior Met tournament this summer and Jackson Lee, another returning Crusader starter, won the city championship in a CRC tournament this summer. Andrew O’Bryan and Luke Wilken are two more returning contributors for Moeller this season. “Last year we were kind of an inexperienced team and had two kids coming back and a lot of underclassmen,” Bohne said.

“Now they know what it takes and what a grind the postseason is. I learned last year we have a lot of competitors and a lot of kids that are dedicated and committed to making this work.” Bohne said there will be some stiff competition in the city and district, citing St. Xavier and Elder as two strong teams just in the GCL-South. Centerville will be another strong team at the district level for Moeller to deal with. Bohne said he is looking forward to the start of the season and said this may be one of the deepest teams he’s had.

“This could be as deep as our 2003 team, which finished third at state,” Bohne said. “We had nine really good players that year. We’ve had teams with a comparable top five but the 2003 team had much better players in the sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth spots. This team could be like that one. There’s good competition and guys know they can’t sit on what happened last year because there’s always someone behind you pushing for that position. “That’s how you get good and it makes teams better and it’s one of the things we’ve excelled at

Kepley takes over St. X golf program By Tony Meale

After winning a state title in 2008 and finishing as state runner-up in 2009, the St. Xavier High School golf team will be without Brian Shircliff, a 1992 Bomber graduate who had coached the team since 1998. The program, however, is in safe hands. Alex Kepley, who served as Shircliff’s assistant the last six years, will assume the head coaching position. “Brian developed an incredible program,” said Kepley, who graduated from St. X in 1985. “I’m very excited and blessed to have this opportunity. Leading the team this year are a pair of first-team all-league performers, seniors-to-be Smith Brinker and George Rohde. “They’ve had a very extensive summer tournament schedule and have had great success in the past,” Kepley said. “As seniors, they bring the experience of playing at the state championships. I look for them to be our anchors.” Other contributors will include seniors-to-be Brady Carlson, Nick Stenger and CJ Howitt, as well as juniors-

the ball a mile, and that’s great; but if you can’t put the ball in the hole, it doesn’t matter how far you hit it.” Kepley hopes for a return to the state championships but said the success of this season does not hinge on that. “You can’t control how other teams play,” he said. “If we do everything that we can to prepare and be effective and efficient so we minimize our mental mistakes, that’s all I can ask of these young men.”

Glendale’s Village Square will replace and expand sidewalks, add crosswalks and include enhancements such as trees and furniture. Will these changes make you more likely to patronize Square businesses? Why or why not? No responses. What was your best summer job? Your worst? Why? “My best summer job was at a camp called Camp Nuhop. It was a camp for children with disabilities. It was located by Mohican State Park. I learned all kinds of skills pertaining to group control and positive discipline. “I went on to a career as a special educator going on 32 years now. The camp is still operating and I refer many students there.” K.S. “My best summer job was when I was between my junior and senior years in high school. I worked, along with my nephew, at the Easterly Sewage Plant in Cleveland, spreading gravel. It was also my worst summer job, since it’s the only summer job I ever held.” B.B. “For the summer between high school graduation and college I landed a job as a temporary postal carrier. Besides it being a decent paying job, I got to be outdoors and meet lots of people all over Greater Cincinnati. It was also a transition for me since, for the first time in my life, adults treated me as an adult.” R.V. “My best summer job was the summer I was 16. A family I babysat for had a little boy who was 2. About two weeks before summer break his mom gave birth to twin girls. My summer job was going to their house Monday-Friday during the day to help with the kids. “Some days I was there with Michele and the kids, some days I would have one kid, two kids, or all three kids. I learned how to determine who was crying, why they were crying, and could tend to all three at the same time if need be. “This remained my summer job for the next couple of summers. I loved the job and those kids. It was so rewarding. And 16 years when my husband and I had twin boys I could not thank them enough for all great experience to hit the ground running.” T.S. “Worst summer job was working at Mr. Gatti’s Pizza on Beechmont (about 25 years ago). I worked mostly until closing, and after work I would drive to Dunkin’ Donuts and get two donuts for my ride home. “What I didn’t gain in work

It was hard work, but I met a lot of nice people, including a co-worker that I still keep in touch with today. I kept the courts in shape, daily treating them and restriping them to await the barrage of players that would come out even in the 90-plus degree heat. “My worst summer job would have to be when I was in high school and it was my job to pass out coupons for free RC and DietRite cola after the riots of 1968. It was hot, sticky work walking door to door making blind calls. Obviously people were skeptical, but gladly accepted free pop. If only life’s problems could be solved so ‘easily’ with free soft drinks.” R.L.H. “My favorite was working in a small grocery store in a little country town. It was enjoyable because I knew most of the customers and there were always interesting conversations about family, friends, etc ... B.N. “My one and only summer job was working at Kings Island its first and second season! Oh what fun. I enjoyed meeting all the guests that came to the park, plus other teen employees from different areas of Cincinnati – Anderson Township, Indian Hill, Wyoming, etc...oh my gosh. Not to mention that we got free admission to the park when we weren’t working.” C.A.S. “My favorite summer job is the one I’m working on right now... Posting photos of my Great Lakes road trip to my website ... Today (day 24 of my trip) I am in The Lake Of The Woods district of Northern Ontario. You may want to check in, to follow along..... See ya, Ken.” K.S.


Since it opened in 1972, Kings Island has been a popular summer employer for many.

Hosting a foreign student more than a fair exchange My family grew last year, but not in the usual way. Instead of a new baby, we got a new teenager. We hosted an exchange student through CIEE. We really hadn’t planned to host. But we learned about a German exchange student whose host family was transferred, just prior to her arrival: the poor child would be homeless! Could we step up?

But inside, I was excited at the prospect of expanding the cultural awareness of my own children. I sent in the application. I’m so glad I did. We had a week to get ready. I converted our spare room into a bedroom. Paul repaired the extra bathroom. And suddenly, she was here. Merle arrived July 31 from her small village of 800. As we drove through the cut in the hill and saw the downtown Cincinnati skyline, she gasped, “You live in there?” In the first few weeks, I felt like I had to be a Southwest Ohio tour guide for Merle. But she really wanted only to be with her new brother and sister, and to get to know regular American life. The legislature was not in session in August, which turned out to be very convenient. My three high schoolers had three different activities, and all of them started Aug. 3. This is true American life, I thought: driving your teenagers back and forth to the school for their activities. Merle was sweet, independent and pleasant. She took short showers, got her own breakfast, and made her own lunch for school. Whenever I opened the dishwasher, she jumped up to help. If only all teens were so anxious! She helped with our weekly housekeeping, daily dishes, and, occasionally, cooking. She played piano for us, encouraging my kids to take it up again. There was nothing negative about her – but she was still this extra person in the house. The first few months were an adjustment. As the months went on, she truly became one of our family, and I had trouble imagining our

Sycamore High School guidance counselors and teachers helped Merle choose suitable coursework and find fun activities. They focused on providing Merle a good experience. CIEE organized several activities over the year for all the exchange students. Merle sometimes spent a Saturday with the area coordinator and her family.

L.R. Hunley readies the bar at Piccolo in Glendale’s Village Square.

Glendale uncorks wine bar By Kelly McBride

Its name may reflect the size of the room, but Piccolo wine bar boasts the largest selection in the Midwest. Piccolo, which means “small” in Italian, recently opened adjacent to Piazza Discepoli Wine Merchants in Glendale’s Village Square. Customers can enjoy 30 varieties of wine by the glass or by the taste, or a selection of 40 half bottles. In addition to wine, Piccolo serves specialty beer, wine cocktails and light snacks. “We complement the area restaurants by offering an alternative for before or after dinner,” said L.R. Hunley, Piccolo manager. Hours are Tuesday through Thursday, 3 p.m. to 10 p.m., Friday 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Saturday noon to 11 p.m. Piccolo is closed Sunday and Monday, except when private events are scheduled. The wine bar, at 700 square feet, serves about 24 in the main area, which includes a bar and separate


Piccolo is open Tuesdays through Saturdays. seating. The bar itself is a unique creation, made of concrete tinted a wine color. It features inlaid wine bottle bottoms, inverted and filled with liquid glass. Speckles of glass shards adds pattern to the curved bar. The rear of the wine bar includes cushioned seating for up to six visitors, where customers can uncork a bottle of wine purchased at the adjoining Piazza Discepoli for an additional $5 uncorking fee. “We wanted to make it intimate,” Hunley said. “Like a library or sitting room.” The walls of Piccolo are filled with black and white photos of Glendale, adding a small town feel to the little Italian wine bar.

William Miller and Sara Kurtz with their prize-winning entry, “America Rocks.” It was part of the Wyoming neighborhood competition held every year, when different groups of streets strut their stuff in the parade.

Mural, mural on the wall

Wyoming arts again more than fairest of all

Wyoming held its annual neighborhood competition July 3, and the parade winners were (drum roll please), Sara Kurtz and William Miller. We met at Claudia and Stan Streeter’s home, and talked while enjoying Sara’s delicious raspberry and blueberry custard tart pastry, based on a family recipe. In 1965, Pablo Picasso said that there are painters who transform the sun into a yellow spot, but others, thanks to their art and intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun. That’s how I view Sara and Will, who cleverly designed and executed a huge mural in 16 panels that they entitled “America Rocks.” Think about the skill it takes to paint something in so many separate pieces, and then put them together perfectly. Recreating Mount Rushmore with Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt, they added a twist by including Elvis Presley’s face to complete the theme. It is fabulous! The mural was stored in the Streeter’s garage, and their son lent his muscle to help with the project. One year, Will and Sara made an impressive Chinese dragon that seemed a block long. For Ohio’s Bicentennial parade, they made a gargantuan birthday cake. They wore huge pieces of cake with candles on their heads. Everything was choreographed to come together to form a layer cake,

with Stan holding the middle layer. Now, this is true creativity. These whimsical productions represent only one side of the gifted professionals. Sara and her partner beautiful Evelyn painted murals for Indian Hill Perkins residents. She also Community does interior painting, Press but prefers murals and columnist wall finishes. Sara is from Canada and Will is from Tennessee. They met in New York in 1981 while taking an adult gymnastics class from Olympic gold medalist Olga Korbut’s coach. Sara worked for the Random House School Audio-Visual Division, transferring artwork from books into filmstrips and video with original music for children’s programming. Will is a graphic artist who did package designing for an agency. After they moved to Danbury Connecticut and had two children, Sara worked freelance for Random and Will worked for a New Canaan design firm. They relocated to Skaneateles, one of the Finger Lakes communities in Upstate New York. Will worked for another design firm, while Sara illustrated children’s books. The area had been a big resort town in the 1800s and there were still lots of farms. It

was a peaceful change from New York life. Artists absorb things that most people don’t even notice. Well-traveled artists can tap into a large variety of experiences and express them through his/her art. During their marriage, the couple has been able to do just that. Will worked in Canada and was the successful creative director for a company in Poland. They were very impressed with the old farm-style Polish architecture made with enormous boulders. The Polish people take great pride in maintaining their traditional architecture and cuisine. Visits to Prague, Budapest, Finland and Venice also provided great fodder for the creative mind. When they moved to Cincinnati, Will “accidentally” found Wyoming, and they have been delighted to be residents since 1994. Sara says the school system is just what the children needed. Will was the design director for Deskey Co. for 10 years, and now he and Sara do superb free-lance work. If you want to enhance your home or business, you should view their work.

Tri-County Press

August 4, 2010


Here are ten rules for being human Father Lou is off this week. The Community Press is running a column that was orginally published Jan. 3, 2007.

1. You will receive a body. You may like it or dislike it, but it’s yours for life. Make friends with it, respect it, and listen to it. Your body always tells you many truths about yourself. 2. There are no mistakes, only lessons. You are made to grow, and growth is a process of trial and error, learning, and moving on. The pains of past failures are even more a teacher than the joys of gains and successes. Live and learn! 3. A lesson will be repeated until it is learned. Realize that

you cannot keep performing the same behavior and expect different results. Who, or whatever, hurts you and goes against your true growth, let go of and move on. Wise up! 4. The most important things in life are loving relationships. Your Creator’s initial advice was, “It is not good to be alone.” That was not advice against enjoying solitude but a warning about being unconnected and emotionally alone. Being in orbit around your own ego makes a mighty small world and a selfish person. Care about others! Learn to love! 5. Other people can serve as mirrors. The significant traits you like or despise about another per-

son frequently reflect something unconscious you like or despise about yourself - but which you find it hard to admit. Know thyself! 6. Whether it’s a place or a time of life, “there” is not always better than “here.” Too often the best seems to be happening “there.” But if you get “there” it then becomes a “here” and you will likely yearn for another “there” that seems better than “here.” Don’t always be living looking at a “there.” Always appreciate the “here,” the “now!” 7. Every human person has many aspects: body, soul, mind and heart. Leaving any part of yourself undeveloped produces a lop-sided and unfulfilled

person. To the extent that you develop all the parts of your humanness makes your life either a work of art or a blurred picture. Become more whole! 8. The most wonderful part of you lies deep within. It’s called “soul,” or “core,” or “true self.” It starts talking to you the loudest in the second half of your life. If you listen, it will impart wisdom, truths, and exquisite understanding you’ve never had before. If you don’t listen, you’ll miss the meaning of your life. Don’t be afraid to reflect! To listen! 9. You create your own climate. That’s because of the power of the thoughts you entertain, the attitudes you keep, the choices you make. Gripe and think nega-

tively and your life will always Father Lou be overcast and Guntzelman dark. Appreciate, and you’ll Perspectives start noticing the many good things you have. You get the emotional climate you develop. Why rain on yourself? 10. There are many “important” things in this life, and there are a few things that are really “essential.” Never, never exchange the essential for the important. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@ or P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242.

Be careful before purchasing appliance warranty I’m seeing more and more companies these days offering warranties that claim to cover all your home appliances. But, is it a good idea to sign up, or are you better off saving your money and just paying for repairs as needed? It’s not unusual to find a whole house appliance warranty offered by the seller when you looking to buy an existing house. Now some national firms, and even some local appliance repair shops, have begun offering this to all. Sherri Burton of Amelia received an ad from a national company for such a warranty for about $40 a

m o n t h and said it looked like a great deal. “ I f something w e n t r o n g Howard Ain w you were Hey Howard! to contact them and you got a claim number. I guess they subcontract. They would come out here. I would pay a $75 deductible,” said Burton. Soon after signing up she encountered a problem with her stove and called, but was very surprised at the response she received. “Bottom line, they didn’t

want to fix it. They just wanted to replace a knob and then, if something else went wrong, they’d have to come back here and fix it,” she said. Burton had to pay the $75 deductible but says she just went out and bought a new stove. Next, Burton’s furnace started making a lot of noise so she again called the warranty company. A repairman came out but, “He said as long as the furnace was running he can’t do anything. It has to not be running,” she said. The furnace then started overheating so she called again. “He turned the furnace

on and said, ‘As long as the furnace is running there’s nothing I can do.’ I said, ‘Would you like a Coke because after it kicks on the second or third time it’s going to overheat?’ Well, it did,” said Burton. Burton was then told the repairman couldn’t fix the furnace because he couldn’t get parts since it was too old. But now, in the warm summer weather, the air conditioner is also overheating so she can’t get her house cool. “I thought it was going to be a great company for $40 a month, $75 deductible,” said Burton. “It’s about saving me money, but appar-

ently it’s about making them money.” The company wouldn’t respond to my phone calls so I had Burton file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. The company has responded to complaints filed with the bureau. After Burton filed her complaint, the warranty company sent out another repairman to check the furnace. He found the problem was with the blower motor and it had to be replaced. Burton had to pay $500, but the new motor solved the problem. Now Burton is trying to get back that $500 from the warranty compa-

ny. The Better Business Bureau says it’s received about 700 complaints about this company from people who say the firm would not pay for needed repairs. In response, the company says consumers need to read the contract thoroughly and fully understand exactly what’s included and what’s excluded. Bottom line, you need to be very careful before agreeing to any of these warranties. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

Rub shoulders with old-fashioned pork barbeque Our little flock of chickens has one less member today. And it’s my fault. L a s t Rita night, I Heikenfeld forgot to Rita’s kitchen lock the chickens in their pen. This morning, when I went out to feed them, I saw a trail of white feathers leading down to the river bank. Not a good sign – I immediately thought “raccoons.” And that’s how our only white feathered hen, “Whitey,” as the kids called her, met her untimely demise. So you can understand when I say I just don’t feel like sharing any recipes today for, you guessed it: chicken.

Easy pork shoulder for barbeque

There’s an old-fashioned type of meat that folks are starting to rediscover. It’s fresh pork shoulder (and when it’s smoked it’s sometimes called cottage ham or smoked pork butt).


Combine and set aside while making dressing: 6-8 cups shredded cabbage or cole slaw mix 2 carrots, sliced thin or shredded 1 bell pepper, chopped 1 cup onion, chopped




Rita picking berries at her elderberry bush.

I use it to make goetta since it has a nice layer of fat which keeps the goetta moist. (See sidebar on Glier’s Goettafest.) I also use it to make barbeque. It’s so delicious that I’ll save some of the roasted pork to serve for supper before I make the barbecue, and serve it with boiled noodles. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Score the fat on top of a boneless pork shoulder, about 5 to 7 pounds. Season with salt and pepper and place, fat side up, in a Dutch oven or roasting pan with about a cup of water. Roast until some of the fat has melted, about an hour.

Rita clips the blooms off fresh basil to keep the plant focused on its leaves. Remove pan and reduce temperature to 350 degrees. Tightly cover pan with foil or a lid. Cook about three to four hours more, or until meat is tender enough to shred with forks. When cool enough to handle, remove fat if you want and shred meat into bite size pieces. This freezes well. To serve, stir in favorite barbecue sauce to taste, and heat until hot throughout.

Rita’s do-ahead marinated slaw

This is delicious with the barbecue, and a bit different than the norm.

Bring to a boil, then simmer, uncovered, 10-15 minutes or so, until slightly thickened: 1 cup sugar 1 cup cider vinegar 1 ⁄2 cup water 2 teaspoons mustard seed (optional but good) or 1 ⁄2 teaspoon celery seed (also optional) Pour dressing over cabbage mixture. Cover and refrigerate four hours or overnight. Stir before serving.

Tips from Rita’s garden

Harvesting basil: Be sure and snip the flower heads that are forming on basil. Otherwise, energy will go into the flowers and seeds, and leaf production will suffer. The flowers of all culinary herbs are edible. (I do


The 10th annual Glier’s Goettafest will be held Friday through Sunday, Aug. 6-8, at Newport’s Riverfront Levee, just down the steps from the Newport Aquarium. Look for the return of the popular Goetta Toss and the Goetta Slide games. Proceeds from the games will go to the Covington charity, Welcome House. Also be sure to check out for menu and entertainment listings. let one plant go to seed for next year’s crop). Roasted whole plum tomatoes: These make a delicious sauce for pasta. You can also freeze them up to six months. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Toss tomatoes with a bit of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Lay in single layer on rimmed baking sheets. If you have some fresh thyme, tuck several sprigs in between the tomatoes. Bake until they burst, about 45 to 60 minutes, rotating pans halfway through. Let cool, then coarsely chop.

Salsa verde at Rincon Mexicano restaurant in Eastgate. For Denise Mar-

tinez. “I have tried several different recipes and can’t seem to duplicate the one at Rincon.” Applespice Junction’s chicken tortilla soup. For Amy. “I cannot figure out how to duplicate this chain restaurant’s soup.” She said it has a little spice flavor, and thicker than other chicken tortilla soups. The Polo Grille’s corn and tomato salsa and Bravo!’s original focaccia bread and dipping oil. For Jane in Montgomery. She said the salsa looked pretty simple with roasted corn, tomatoes, garlic salt. “So good.” And about Bravo!’s focaccia, Jane said they changed their recipe and it’s not nearly as good as the original, which she thinks may have had mashed potatoes in it.

Wyoming troop ends great year The 2009-2010 year has been full and rewarding for the girls scouts – Abby Casada, Macy Horton, Isabelle Judge, Madeline Judge and Sydney Renick – in Wyoming Junior Girl Scout Troop No. 48235, and their leader, Beth Horton. It started with a simple year-end campout in a local backyard, followed by a trip to Mammoth Cave in Kentucky. The girls then baked cookies at the Ronald McDonald House and painted pottery with Ann Flynn of Star Glazers. The troop made gifts and then delivered and visited with the residents at Evergreen Retirement Community. Valentines were made for the families of Ronald McDonald House. They collected and made birthday bags for the Ronald McDonald House, and they also collected books for a local charity. They served cookies at Wyoming’s annual Light Up Wyoming and ended their year with a bang by completing the requirements and earned their Bronze Award. To bridge into Cadette Girl Scouts, the girls will walk over the Purple People Bridge with their families. The girls are now working toward their Silver Award, with a lot more community service planned for the 2010-2011 year.

Mark Mallory are the big winners in the eighth annual Northern Kentucky University Cincinnati Entertainment Survey. The survey measures the popularity, satisfaction and value of local entertainment attractions. It also measures local attitudes about quality of life and asks what is the region’s best-kept entertainment secret and who is the unofficial face of Cincinnati. The Cincinnati Reds and Cincinnati Zoo finished in a statistical tie for the most popular local attractions. Fifty-six percent of the survey’s 511 respondents reported attending a Reds game in the last year, while 55 percent reported visiting the zoo during that time. Kings Island (41 percent) finished third in popularity, followed by the Newport Aquarium (36 percent), Cincinnati Museum Center (33 percent), Cincinnati Ben-

gals (31 percent), Riverbend Music Center (27 percent), Aronoff Center (26 percent), Coney Island (21 percent) and the Cincinnati Art Museum (21 percent). Of all venues included in the study, only Kings Island and the Newport Aquarium saw an increase in popularity over 2009 results. “The industry is going to see a shift from high-cost forms of entertainment to low-cost forms,” the study concluded. “Industries that rely on sales of costly tickets for one-night entertainments, like sporting events, live music and theater, may not benefit from the struggling economy.” In terms of customer satisfaction, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra is the 2010 winner. Seventy percent of respondents rated their satisfaction with the Orchestra as a nine or 10 on a 10-point scale where 10 is “extremely satisfied.” The Cincinnati Art Museum (63 percent) ranked second in satisfaction after topping the list last year. Next was the Cincinnati Opera (61 percent), Cincinnati Museum Center (59 percent), Playhouse in the Park (59 percent), Cincinnati Zoo (56 percent), Aronoff Center (50 percent), National Underground Railroad Freedom Center (48 percent), Kentucky Speedway (45 percent) and Newport Aquarium (45 percent). In challenging economic

times, perceived value becomes that much more important. And when it comes to value, the Cincinnati Art Museum and Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra tied for the top spot this year. Seventy-one percent of respondents rated the Cincinnati Art Museum as a nine or 10 on a 10-point scale where 10 is “extremely good value.” Sixty-six percent of respondents gave the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra such a rating – doubling the percentage of such ratings for the CSO over last year, making the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra the biggest mover in terms of both satisfaction and perceived value this year. Following the art museum and symphony are the Florence Freedom (63 percent), National Underground Railroad Freedom Center (58 percent), Cincinnati Opera (53 percent), Playhouse in the Park (48 percent), Cincinnati Museum Center (47 percent), Cincinnati Zoo (43 percent), Kentucky Speedway (36 percent) and Coney Island (36 percent). “I think if you look at the data in terms of satisfaction and perceived value, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra has to be pretty pleased by the results of the NKU Cincinnati Entertainment Survey,” said Dr. Aron Levin, associate professor of marketing and director of the NKU Marketing Research Partnership Program. “That

said, all of these organizations can benefit from this information. Our study offers an unbiased outside look at the perceptions that are out there, and as they say perception is reality. We hope to work with these groups – no matter how they fared this year – to give them useful, actionable information that can help them plan for continued growth and expansion.” The Florence Freedom organization won the award for Best Family Friendly local attraction, which is calculated by combining, among other factors, customer satisfaction and perceived value. The survey asked who is the unofficial face of Cincinnati. Responses were all over the board – from television personalities such as Jerry Springer and Nick Clooney to business leaders like Bob Castellini and Bill Butler; from Nick Lachey to former UFC Middleweight Champion Rich Franklin. But in the end, there was a statistical tie between all-time Major League Baseball hits leader Pete Rose (43 votes) and Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory (41 votes). They were followed by Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco (32 votes). The survey measured perceived quality of life around the region and found that 62 percent from Hamilton County believe that Cincinnati is a good or great place to live.
