St. Michael’s Mass appeal

Elgin Card

90-year-old church rock of faith for members

Volume 25 Number 52 © 2009 The Community Press ALL RIGHTS RESERVED


Princeton High School Principal William Sprankles was misidentified as Jim Sprankles in a breakout quote in the Aug. 5 Tri-County Press.

By Kelly McBride Reddy

As St. Michael Church prepares for its 90th anniversary celebration, some of its longtime parishioners reflect on their years with the Sharonville church. Virginia Huening’s in-laws were the first couple to be married at that church. William and Louise Huening were married May 5, 1920. Virginia married their son, William, born in 1923. Virginia, herself, holds a first at St. Michael. She was the school’s first secretary, working there from 1964 to 1990. “When I went to work there, all five of my children were at St. Michael’s,” she said of the kindergarten through eighth-grade school. She’s still a parishioner, though her husband, William, died in 2006 at age 82, after suffering from Alzheimer’s. “When my husband was sick, they were so caring,” she said. “A few days before he died, Father (Jeff Silver) asked, ‘Can I come and visit? I’ll be right there.’ “He was there within five minutes,” Virginia said of the former St. Michael’s pastor. “That’s something I’ll never forget. That meant a lot.” That warmth is spread throughout the church, she said. “Everybody is friendly,” Vir-

The celebration

St. Michael Church is planning a reunion dinner-dance on Saturday, Aug. 22. The event will take place at Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Church, 177 Siebenthaler Ave., Reading. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. and dinner will be served at 7 p.m. The cost per person is $25 and includes a hot buffet meal, dessert and coffee. There will be music, and participants are encouraged to bring their own beer, wine and snacks. Reservations, required before Monday, Aug. 17, can be made at the St. Michael parish office, 11144 Spinner Ave. Or call Mary Jo Dyer at 563-1433. ginia said. “They seem to be like a big family.” Another parishioner, Mary Jo Dyer, shares those feelings. She and her husband, Ray, sent all six of their children to school at St. Michael and have been parishioners for 50 years. “There doesn’t seem to be any cliques here,” Mary Jo said. “You always felt welcome, and it’s still like that today. “Everybody gets along with everybody else,” she said. “A lot of compromise goes on.” Louie Sharpshear grew up in the parish, one of eight children. “My dad was active helping out in the parish,” he said. “As kids, whenever they needed help, we’d charge down there.”

Virginia Huening has been a St. Michael parishoner since 1948. “With any parish, you’ve got to get involved,” said his dad, Lou, a parishioner since 1960. To celebrate nine decades, the parish of 1,500 families is planning a dinner and dance in


August. Mary Jo and Ray Dyer will attend, as well as Lou and Louie Sharpshear, memories in tow and set to make more.

Merchant Marines earn recognition

Retired Officer Bill Bridgeford boiled his list of 13 guidelines for firearms safety to two critical rules. Keep firearms pointed in a safe direction.

Springdale’s War Memorial pays tribute to the five branches of the military, as well as a group of civilians crucial to military efforts. The Merchant Marines are civilians who operate ships that carry cargo or passengers, providing maritime services to the military. During World War II, they transported war supplies, equipment and troops. During that war, about 9,300 mariners were killed, with 12,000 injured. With one in 26 killed, it was the highest casualty rate of any service during World War II. It wasn’t until 1988 that the Merchant Marines were awarded veteran status. Today, they still transport soldiers and supplies to Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan. To honor them, Springdale has erected a story stone around the

Glendale police take aim at firearms safety By Kelly McBride Reddy

Retired Officer Bill Bridgeford boiled his list of 13 guidelines for firearms safety to two critical rules. Keep firearms pointed in a safe direction. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot. “You do that, and you just about have it made,” Bridgeford said. “The rest is gravy.” Bridgeford, a former Wyoming police officer and who teaches training classes for police officers several times a year, led a civilian class in Glendale Aug. 1. The police department had rented a firearms simu-


Bryan Van Buren of Glendale takes aim during a simulated exercise. As part of the Glendale Police Department's firearms safety class, he used a laserequipped gun test his judgment and reflexes during a videotaped criminal action.

A gun is only as safe as the person operating it.” He demonstrated safe ways to handle a gun and offered creative ideas to secure a firearm. One idea was inserting a pencil in the chamber of the barrel. “Anything you can do to keep the cylinder from closing will keep the gun from firing, or keep the slide from closing,” Bridgeford said.

Each of the 30 participants also received a gun lock, which prevents the slide from closing, making the gun impossible to fire. Participants also had an opportunity to put themselves in a simulated police situation in which a decision had to be made whether to shoot a suspect. The simulator used video scenarios on a large screen, and the participant stood several feet away, using a laser-equipped gun. The simulator registered how may shots were fired, which were hits, and whether any of the hits were fatal. Decisions had to be made quickly, and the scenarios were interactive. The simulator was later

used in a police training exercise in Glendale. The class wrapped up with information from Springdale Officer Fred Romano, who explained Ohio’s concealed carry law. “We had a lot of local residents express interest in firearms,” Lt. Dave LeCompte said. “Sgt. Craig Walsh brought the idea of offering the simulator to give exposure to what we go through,” said Chief Dave Warman. “We want to give an understanding of how to handle a weapon if you find one, and how to secure it to make sure it’s safe,” Walsh said. “Most accidents are because people don’t have a knowledge of how to be safe,” LeCompte said. Glendale resident Bryan Van Buren participated in the class. “I thought it was informative,” he said. “It gave me things to think about.” Bridgeford said there was one thing he wanted participants to take away from the class: safe, responsible firearms ownership. “Whatever action you take, you have to be able to justify,” Bridgeford said. “Just think about that if you have to defend yourself with a firearm.”


Ted and Sam Stoini, owners of Ringo Lanes, explain bowling technique to Connie Pillich and family.

Pillich invites community to bowling night in Blue Ash On Friday, Aug. 14, at 7:30 pm, State Rep. Connie Pillich (D-Montgomery) invites the community to join her and her family for an evening of bowling at Ringo Lanes, 9651 Kenwood Road in Blue Ash. “Spending quality family-time with my husband and our children is a priority I take very seriously. Bowling allows us to be together, have some laughs and though many don’t realize it, bowling is also great exercise. Come join us,” Pillich said. Ringo Lanes has been a fixture in Blue Ash since August 1976. Owners Sam and Teddy Stoini are always eager to share its history as so many of their fondest memories are intertwined with the lifeblood of Ringo Lanes. “Our parents and my

brother were immigrants from Yugoslavia, arriving in America in 1938 with nothing but two straw suitcases and the clothes on their back,” Sam said. “In America, my mother cleaned houses and my father’s first job entailed sewing baseballs. Together they saved every penny, which they used to invest and build Ringo Lanes. It’s my life and our livelihood. We are happy to host Rep. Pillich, her family, friends and area residents.” For $25, attendees will enjoy two games, shoes and first beverage.

Glendale Village Council has voted to include gas aggregation on the November ballot, allowing residents to choose whether to receive natural gas from Duke Energy or an alternative company. If passed, the measure will simply allow for choice, and residents can opt out at any time. Councilman William Aronstein explained how the process works, after resident Bruce Abel expressed concerns about putting the measure before voters in November. “If we choose aggregation, Duke delivers the electricity and reads the meters,� Aronstein said. “The only thing that changes are the actual charges of generation of natural gas. “If the village enters into an aggregation contract, there is no requirement for everyone in the village to go with the other provider,� he said. “They can opt out and stay with Duke.� Abel addressed council with his concerns, asking council to delay putting the measure on the ballot, to allow more time to study the issue. He was concerned about the costs of the product, as well as fees paid to consultants who set up the programs for municipalities. Council passed the measure unanimously, agreeing

Raymond Walters College signs agreement with CCM A formal transfer articulation agreement was signed between the University of Cincinnati’s Raymond Walters College and the university’s College-Conservatory of Music. The agreement stipulates the requirements for transferring to the CCM bachelor of fine arts in electronic media, following completion of the RWC associate of applied science degree in electronic media technology. It provides for seamless transfer into the third year of CCM’s bachelor of fine arts in electronic media with no loss of credits from the RWC associate degree program. The agreement was developed by H. Michael Sanders, professor and director of Electronic Media Communications at RWC, and Manfred Wolfram, head of CCM’s

Electronic Media division. Dave Hubble and Eric Anderson, faculty of RWC eMedia Communications, and Kevin Burke and Peter DiPietro, faculty of CCM E-Media, also contributed to the review of the agreement. The signing formalizes the

articulation agreement through Sept. 1, 2012. “The formal agreement was developed in the spirit of the UC|21 Academic Plan at UC in placing students at the center and forging key relationships and partnerships to facilitate student suc-

cess,” Sanders said. “It is also proactive recognition that the state of Ohio is moving toward a more integrated and transparent University System which should help create clearer educational pathways for students.” Sanders also said that this was the first step in continuing collaboration with CCM to develop both academic and media production opportunities for students and faculty in both colleges. “This articulation agreement will allow RWC Electronic Media Communications majors to plan ahead and prepare in advance to join the E-Media division fouryear BFA program at CCM on the uptown campus,” Wolfram said. “We are looking forward to accepting the best students RWC eMedia Communications produces.”

This is the second transfer articulation agreement RWC Electronic Media Communications has developed with a baccalaureate college at UC’s uptown campus. The first, with UC College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning, provides a seamless transfer from RWC Electronic Media Technology to the DAAP bachelor of fine arts in electronic arts. This agreement was formalized earlier during the current academic year, but students have been transferring into the DAAP Electronic Arts BFA program since 2002.

Princeton, Wyoming trying to keep pace By Tony Meale

Area runners are getting ready for the cross country season. Here’s a forecast for local teams as they prepare for the 2009 campaign.


The Princeton High School girls’ team returns several key runners from a team that finished sixth at districts in 2008. The team will be led by sophomore Claudia Saunders (18:43.00), who finished third at districts last year and missed qualifying for state due to illness. “She is one of the top cross country runners in the state,” head coach Jim Crumpler said. “I look for her to finish very high at the state meet this year.” Other standouts for the Vikings include Jade Boggs, Milena Fernandez, Jessica Rudd, Irene Musgrove, Megan Piphus and Hannah Thomas. “Milena Fernandez showed a

great deal of promise last year before a stress fracture sidelined her,” Crumpler said. “Jessica Rudd is coming off a great track season, and Irene Musgrove has been a steady inspiration to the whole time. We have several new girls who we hope can help the team improve.” For the boys’ team, the top returner is junior Sam Heaton, who fell just short of regionals in the 3200 this past spring. “Sam is coming off a very strong track season,” said Crumpler, who hopes to get Heaton to regionals. Other contributors will be Brian Myers, Matt Smith, Marcus Donaldson and Richard Ellison.


The girls’ team, which won the CHL last year and finished second at districts and seventh at regionals, figures to be impressive yet again. The Lady Cowboys’ top returners are sophomore Emily Sites,

who finished second at districts as a freshman, and junior Nathalia Backeljauw, Jr. On the boys’ side, four starters return for a team that in 2008 won the CHL, finished third at districts and placed sixth at regionals; among them are seniors Patrick Ammerman and Evan Cheshire and sophomores Wes Boetcher and Andrew Tamanko. “Wyoming should be one of the better Division-II teams in the Cincinnati area this year,” head coach Dan Flaute said.



Mount Notre Dame

The Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy girls’ team, which finished fourth at districts last year, will be led by sophomores Emily Walton, Elizabeth Lyle and Julianne Martin. Leading the Eagles on the boys’ side will be seniors Andrew Wallace and Chris Taylor and sophomores Tyler Vonderhaar and Brian Taylor.

The Moeller High School team is coming off a 78-36 season and returns five key starters. David Griffith, Patrick McCarty, Jim Tussey, Tom Tussey and Paul Krehbiel are all back for the Crusaders. Head coach Dave Prenger said that should mean good things for the Crusaders. “With the majority of the varsity team from 2008 back, that gives us plenty to build on for 2009,” he said.

The Mount Notre Dame cross country team will look to improve on its fifth place GGCL finish in 2008 and returns six varsity runners. Senior Tina Verrilli, juniors Elizabeth Deutsch, Sarah Macke and Allison Weaver and sophomores Katelyn Sussli and Kendra Adams all ran varsity last year. Seniors Kristi Betz, Vanessa Hope and Jess Ernst are looking to fill

the seventh spot. Head coach Aaron Gnagy said the season looks promising. “This group has been running together for a couple years and they know each others capabilities and our confidence has improved,” he said. “We’re in a tough league and winning would be a great season for us. Our team goal is to qualify as a team to the regional meet.”


The Ursuline Academy Lions finished second in the GGCL, third at districts and 11th at regionals last year. This season they’ll rely on sophomores Katrina Mariocchi, Dani Dailey and Nikki Volpenhein. Mariocchi and Volpenhein earned second team All-GGCL honors in 2008. Also contributing will be junior Pam Showman, who was honorable mention all-conference last year.

Princeton, Wyoming ready to tee off By Tony Meale

Local high school golfers are back on the green. Here’s a look at area teams as they head into season.


Two first-year coaches hope to help Princeton High School’s golf teams to the next level. Boys’ coach Dan Rebilas would like to see seniors Alex Auduretch, Nick Kiser and Dale Quint play well to anchor the team. Senior Cameron Bickett may join the team later in the season when he’s healthy. He expects juniors Robert Samariego, Alex Mosley and Ben Young; sophomore Jason Schlake and freshman Nick Perrin to play key roles for the team. “Having not coached before, it’s up to the individuals to play to their potential and me to help them reach it. We’ll see how the season progresses,” Rebilas said. The girls’ team has several returning starters, including Abbie Maine, Zoey Ren, Liz Scheffel, Michelle Osbourne, Asel Baatyrbek and Jennifer Irwin. “We are looking to improve each player’s scoring average through consistent game management,” first-year head coach Joanne Rook said. “The number of different courses we play throughout the season demands a consistent approach to each day’s play.”


The Wyoming High School boys’ team returns seven varsity lettermen from a year ago, including senior Patrick Kilbane and juniors Brian Spitzig, Joseph Dulemba and Patrick Schuholz. The Cowboys, which went 169 and finished second in the CHL in 2008, advanced to the district tournament, where they finished ninth. Second-year head coach Rod Crider hopes that a pair of sophomores – Adam Crider and Sam Meyers – can help get the team over the hump. “We’re looking to build on our success (in 2008) and challenge for the CHL title and a birth in the state tournament,” Crider said. The Press did not receive infor-

It’s tight Defense for Team Ohio as Princeton High School’s Dale Quint lays down the tag to nail the Nebraska runner attempting to steal second during the Midwest Summer Baseball Classic. The Midwest Classic, played July 30 to Aug. 2 in Chicago, Ill., was a multi-state allstar tournament that featured high school all-stars chosen from their states. The tournament placed these players in front of nearly 100 college scouts. Team Ohio was made of several players from Cincinnati.


Leading the Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy Eagles in 2009 will be seniors Josh Everhart, Chris Lehky and Nate Post, as well as junior Duhann Jacobs and sophomores T.J. Stachler and Ben Lapps.


The Moeller High School golf team is coming off of a GCL championship in 2008 and finished 8-4 in 2008. The team will be led by a strong junior class. Andrew Dorn, Nick Tenhundfeld and Alex Pietrandera are the returning players for the Crusaders, along with Luke Wilken, Mike Irwin and Cameron Braig. Jackson Lee, Mike Wolf and Andrew Obryan should be key players for Moeller as well. Head coach Rick Bohne said he likes his team’s work ethic and team attitude and that St. Xavier will be one of the tougher teams the Crusaders need to go through if they are to repeat as GCL champs. The Crusaders are also looking to get back to the state tournament as Moeller placed fourth in the state in 2008.


The Ursuline Academy Lions will be led by a pair of secondteam All-GGCL performers in 2008 – junior Amanda Castle and sophomore Megan Tenhundfeld. Also contributing will be senior Sloane Hamilton.

Moeller tight end picks Ball State By Mark Chalifoux One more local Division I football prospect picked a school as Moeller High School tight end David Schneider of Sharonville committed to Ball State University. Ball State fans are excited about his commitment.

Moeller head coach John Rodenberg said he would’ve drawn more interest in the recruiting game if he was a little bigger and that he’s a very underrated recruit. “I haven’t run into a coach yet that doesn’t think he’s a big-time prospect,� he said. “He had a hell of a year last year and will be a big cog in our offense this season.�

Rodenberg said the cocaptain has a little bit of arrogance to his game but is

Farmers’ markets make for simple healthy eating

Crisp green beans. Sweet corn on the cob. Juicy red tomatoes. Nothing says summer quite like local produce. Visiting your neighborhood farmers’ market is a delicious decision to improve your health by including more fruits and vegetables into your daily life. Healthy eating habits are vital to overall health and wellness. In Hamilton County, 91 percent of adults do not consume the recommended five fruits and vegetables per day for six or more days a week. According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, a healthy eating plan: • emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains and fat-free or low-fat dairy. • includes lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs and nuts.

• is low in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, salt (sodium) and added sugars. • stays within your daily calorie Tim Ingram needs.

The crossroad to serfdom Our future and that of our children is at a crossroad. One road leads to financial and virtual slavery. As with many choices, the path we choose may not seem clear at first. It may even seem deceiving. The public must probe these roads carefully before making a choice. Those who choose the brightly lit path may not be aware of the cheese in the mouse trap or the hook holding the attractive worm. Such is the nature of easy choices and deceptive practices. As we stand at this crossroad, we should consider that after the dark night comes the dawn. Recessions are the natural method of rewarding efficiency and punishing waste. The recent government raid into the private Those who sector will choose the only prolong the economic brightly lit path distress by may not be promoting waste.

Now that the government has set aside the Constitution to insert itself into the management of banks, auto manufacturers and perhaps soon, the management of hospitals and our health system, it is wise to take warning. Frederic Bastiat said, “It is impossible to introduce into society a greater change and a greater evil than this: the conversion of the law into an instrument of plunder.” This is exactly what is happening. Secured creditors have been plundered for political gain. Ultimately taxes or inflation or

both will be used to settle the potential future lawsuits. Taxation is the enemy of job creation and p r o s p e r i t y. When taxes are Edward Levy levied on businesses, they are Community added to the Press guest price. Eventualcolumnist ly, even the poorest pay these taxes. Even worse, foreign businesses that operate in a more efficient economy will export their products here. Workers will lose their jobs. Trade barriers don’t fix this, they only encourage higher prices and retaliation. The losers are the working poor. Bernard Berenson said, “Governments last as long as the under taxed can defend themselves against the overtaxed.” The reality is that the overtaxed protect their wealth by moving to lower tax areas. This leaves the poor with greater problems and the government with greater opposition. In the end, the government fails. With that failure comes the potential for massive civil disorder. Perhaps there is a lesson in this. Some of the political pundits have suggested that Congress be subjected to the same rules that they are imposing on business. When they run a huge deficit for two years, they should have their salaries reduced. When they run a deficit for three years, they should be expelled from office. I think a lottery system would be the best process. The percent expelled would match the percent of the most recent deficit. Being a lottery, both parties would be subject to losing seats. This would encourage, no, force bipartisanship for the good of the country.

The Wyoming Farmers Market draws a crowd of shoppers on opening day. the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The project focuses on training local communities to create policy and environmental changes that address lifestyle behaviors of healthy eating, increased physical activity and decreased tobacco use to improve the health of residents in these communities. A simple way residents can improve their health is to visit the Wyoming Farmers’ Market this summer. Easily accessible from Woodlawn and Lincoln Heights, the farmers’ market offers various

kinds of fruits and vegetables that can have a positive impact on health. Fruits and vegetables are naturally low in calories and fat, and provide your body with essential vitamins and minerals, fiber and other nutrients. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, those who eat more generous amounts of fruits and vegetables – as part of a healthy diet – are likely to have a reduced risk of chronic diseases such as stroke, diabetes, heart disease and some types of cancer.


Wyoming Farmers’ Market is open 3-7 p.m. Tuesdays through October at 522 Wyoming Ave., at the corner of Van Roberts Place. Visit for directions, recipes and more.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Health reform needed

The vast majority of Americans, including here in Ohio, support health care reform, in poll after poll, year after year. It is clear that private insurance and drug

firms work together to keep prices high and keep raising them. If you have insurance you have no assurance your rates will not go through the roof, or that you will not be denied in the near future. President Obama is trying

Aug. 5 questions

Springdale police can now watch activity at Tri-County Mall from the police station by using surveillance cameras. Do you think this will make the mall safer? Why or why not? No responses. Should Major League Baseball reinstate Pete Rose? Why or why not? “Yes. Michael Vick, who only received a 23-month sentence for dogfighting, is eligible to be reinstated to the NFL and will likely be playing somewhere this fall. Not only was it just gambling on dogfighting and financing its operations, this boil on the buttocks of society also tortured losing dogs by electrocution, drowning and gunshot. What a sick, sociopathic individual. “Pete simply gambled on baseball, without any of the barbarianism exhibited by Michael Vick, and he is banned for life. How is that fair? It’s not, and if that is all the punishment Vick received for such revolting acts, then Pete has definitely paid his debt to society. I think most people would agree with this.” L.L.F.

“I believe Pete has paid the penalty for his unacceptable activity in betting on baseball. He has established the record and as a result he does belong in the Hall of Fame.” F.J.B. “Truthfully, I don’t care. But it does make me think again, as I have so many times in my life, about why people tend to elevate certain people to virtual sainthood based solely on athletic ability (which is usually something an individual inherits from his/her genetic makeup) or popularity as an entertainer. “In my life, I have known so many wonderful people who have given so much to others in terms of their time and talent, and have remained unknown and unrecognized. “For example, there is a young couple in our parish who have adopted a number of children, assuming lifetime responsibility for their care and development. The couple are white, and the children are black and mixed race. “These people are far more worthy of recognition and attention than any Pete Rose or Michael Jackson.” B.B. “Yes, his playing earned it. He’s paid for his mistake long enough.” J.F. “A few years ago I’d have said no, because he broke the rules and knew all along that banishment would be the punishment if he got caught.

New principal with a familiar face For students entering their senior year at Princeton High, school leadership has come full circle. Their principal during ninth-grade, who also taught many in fifth- and sixth-grades at Lincoln Heights Elementary and then at the middle school, has returned to Princeton as the 12th-grade principal. Elgin Card, who left Princeton in 2007 to take a position as assistant high school principal at Lakota West, is once again a Viking. It was the people who brought him back. “I had built great relationships with students, parents and teachers,” Card said. “I still had that relationship. Lakota West is a great place, but Princeton is a bit different. “I’m drawn to them.” “When you tell the kids they’re getting a new princi-

pal during their senior year, that’s a challenging thing,” high school Principal William Sprankles said. “He is the strongest addition we could ask for in an administrative team. “He has the ability to build relationships with adults and kids, and has high expectations, as well as a great chemistry with our administrative team.” “It’s wonderful that he’s back,” said Dana Zinnecker, adviser to the Key Club, the high school’s community service organization. “He was such a huge part of getting those kids started,” she said, “and now, he’ll watch them finish.” Card said the bar is being set high, but it’s reachable. “The kids that are seniors now, I was their teacher and principal,” Card said. “They get a familiar face and know my expectations. “We can hug it out,” he said, “but you need to do the right thing.”

Historic Peterloon tour

Join Cincinnati Preservation Association Sept. 5 from noon to 4 p.m. for the first tour of Peterloon Estate, 8605 Hopewell Road in Indian Hill. The epitome of luxury and refinement, from the Golden Age of Indian Hill estates, Peterloon was the home of John J. and Irene Emery. Reservations are required because space is very limited. Admission is $25 for members, $30 for

non-members. Proceeds support CPA. Contact CPA at 721-4506 or Peterloon was built in 1930 in the Georgian Revival style. The home's deceptive scale ingeniously obscures its huge size: five stories, 36 rooms, 19 fireplaces, 21 baths. Its major reception rooms and bedroom suites are fitted with authentic 18th-century English carved pine paneling. Peterloon's rooms contain their original collections of furnishings and art, including a drawing of Mr. Emery by the artist John Singer Sargent and portraits by Mrs. Emery's father, Charles Dana Gibson. Tour goers are also invited to tour the beautifully landscaped grounds, with walled gardens, terraces, a pool and an eight-acre lake. In 1979, the Peterloon estate and 72 of its original 1,200 acres of land were placed in a foundation, which opened the home and its grounds for public and private enjoyment and use.

The emerging spirituality of imperfection there has gradually emerged a spirituality of imperfection. A spirituality of imperfection says that the first step involves facing Father Lou oneself squarely Guntzelman and seeing ourPerspectives selves as we are: mixed-up, incomplete, and imperfect. To be human is to be errorprone. We are more than the beasts, less than God, yet somehow we are both. Authors Ernest Kurtz and Katherine Ketcham write, “Spirituality helps us first to see, and then to understand, and eventually to accept the imperfection that lies at

the very core of our human be-ing.” Spirituality is not a formula to follow; it is a relationship with God. Spirituality is not about competency; it is about intimacy. Spirituality is not about perfection and doing everything right; it’s about connection. In “Messy Spirituality” Michael Yaconelli states, “The way of the spiritual life begins where we are now in the mess of our lives. Accepting the reality of our broken, flawed lives is the beginning of spirituality, not because the spiritual life will remove our flaws but because we let go of seeking perfection and, instead, seek God, the one who is present in the tangledness of our lives.” A more terse description of our flawed nature is contained in O’Neill’s play “The Great God Brown,” “Man is born broken. He

Local lenders best when mortgage issues arise Despite federal efforts to get mortgage lenders to do more to help homeowners remain in the homes, the number of foreclosures continues to increase. More than 200,000 trial loan modifications are now underway, but the government wants double that amount by November. Robin Peach of Burlington is one of those homeowners who have had trouble with her mortgage for the past two years. “I’ve had problems with them in the past, and I started paying them with Quick Collect from Western Union. But, back in March the bank sent two of my payments back to me,” Peach says. A letter from the bank said Peach had defaulted on her mortgage because she owes about $570. But, she says, she has regularly sent in her payment via Western Union. Unfortunately, when she does that all she has is a record of sending the money and no receipt showing the bank actually received it. As a result of the uncertainly, Peach started making her payments by Certified Check but says that hasn’t helped either. “Right now I stand in active foreclosure. They sent another two payments back to me on Saturday. They’re not accepting my money. I’ve got about four grand, almost five grand floating around,” Peach says. A January letter from her bank says she’s behind in her payments by $2,800, plus $100 in late fees. Peach says she doesn’t understand how the bank came up with those figures but hasn’t been able to get any answers. She hired an attorney in December but says that hasn’t helped. I had Peach call her bank directly and I got on the line to try to figure out what’s going on. Peach says, “I’m very frustrated. It’s just that I’m very busy at work and I don’t have time to deal with this. But, I have to have a place to live.” Unfortunately, Peach is dealing with an out-of-state lender so she can’t just go over and talk with a manager. Bank officials I talked with on the phone tell me they don’t want her house and would rather she be out of foreclosure. They told me the bank did receive her payments for

November a n d December but just hadn’t applied them to h e r account. Howard Ain Yet, they Hey Howard! a p p l i e d the January payment before putting her into active foreclosure. I explained how she now has thousands of dollars in payments she can send and bank officials said they will have someone from their

repayment team contact her. Officials say that team should finally be able to get all this confusion resolved – and expressed confidence she could get out foreclosure. Once she gets out of foreclosure Peach says she plans to contact a local savings and loan to see if she can refinance. I’ve found it’s always best to have your loan serviced by a local bank or savings and loan because, if there’s ever any problem, you have someone you can talk with face-to-face rather

lives by mending. The grace of God is the glue.” Hopefully along the way we become more humble, loving and compassionate. The steps along the way are not ascending some recognizable glorious staircase called ego, but learning to live the ordinariness of our everyday lives. “Don’t fuss too much about yourself, or fight the truth, just accept yourself and grow,” said an old spiritual director. As Henri Nouwen wrote in his “Genesee Diary,” “He who thinks that he is finished is finished. Those who think they have arrived, have lost their way. Those who think they have reached their goal, have missed it. Those who think they are saints, are demons.” The secular world does not encourage people to acknowledge the spiritual

aspect of our nature. Rather it rages against religious systems which they believe deprive us of our desires and physical vitality. David Tacey says of the secularist, “When religion is rejected, it does not mean that the spirit and soul go away or disappear. They are simply repressed into the unconscious where they become factors of disturbance and causes of psychic suffering.” Imperfection is the crack in our armor, the wound that lets God in.

Trying to be perfect in anything is a huge mistake. That’s because we’re human. It’s doubly so when it comes to the spiritual part of being human. It’s said the first prayer of a human is a cry for help. “O God, come to my assistance, O Lord make haste to help me,” (Psalm 70) begins a monastic’s prayer. Bill Wilson, founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, never did “get religion,” but he did become a spiritual man. Through the pain of his life experience he came to realize that unless he made connection with a power greater than himself, he was lost. He was convinced that “We must find some spiritual basis for living, else we die.” Some people think being spiritual means becoming perfect. Not at all. Throughout the centuries

SĂĄnchez a new face for Mexican fare

together at Fox 19 Even though promoting his new I’m a country girl, Azteca Meal EssenI’m city-slicker big tial line. AarĂłn’s when it comes to mom is the famed working with Zarela Martinez, celebrity chefs like icon of Mexican cuiTyler Florence, sine. Tom Douglas, He began his Andrea Robinson, Rita career as co-host of Emeril Lagasse, Heikenfeld “Melting Potâ€? and Martha Stewart’s food editors, Todd Rita’s kitchen now has multiple shows. One of those English, etc. They’ve all been fun to is “Chefs vs. City,â€? and he said he might come to work with. Add to the list AarĂłn Cincinnati and do the show SĂĄnchez, TV personality, here with me (I’m holding award-winning chef, him to that!) I predict AarĂłn will be at restaurateur and author. AarĂłn and I did a video the top of the Food Network

star chart in record time. He chatted with everybody, from the anchors to the technicians. The food he prepared with Azteca products was really yummy. The nice thing about the food is that it’s ready to go, but not fast food junk. Aarón made Beef Barbacoa Smothered Burritos. I’ve made enough Mexican food to know authentic when I taste it, and can tell you under his guidance, these folks have come out with some delicious food Look for the new Azteca products at Kroger, Wal-

Mart and Meier. Check out my blog at for the video.

Jane’s delicious chicken salad

For Phil Jones, who loved Hitch’s in Loveland’s chicken salad. “Available through Zapp’s bar. We can’t duplicate the taste,� he said. Nikki Thompson shares this from friend Jane and “everyone always wants the recipe.� The secret is the cayenne so don’t leave it out. Until (or if) we can get Zapp’s try this.

3 pounds skinned chicken breast 491â „2 oz can chicken broth 1 cup finely chopped celery 1 â „2 cup water chestnuts, rinsed and drained 1 â „2 cup each: finely chopped red and yellow pepper and red onion 3 cups real mayonnaise 1 â „2 to 1 teaspoon ground red cayenne pepper 1 â „2 teaspoon each: salt and white pepper Put chicken in pan and add broth. Cover and boil. Simmer 30 minutes until done. Cool 15 minutes. Shred and combine with celery and water chestnuts. Add peppers and onion. Stir in mayo. Add seasonings.

Citrus ginger syrup for fruit

I’ve had a couple requests for this. Nice and light. If you don’t have Cointreau or another orange liqueur, augment with a couple of tablespoons of thawed undiluted frozen orange juice. 1 cup orange juice (if it’s fresh, use zest, too, and set that aside as a garnish) 1 cup sugar About 1 tablespoon minced ginger root 2 tablespoons orange liqueur Chopped mint Bring juice, sugar, ginger to a boil. Let simmer until sugar dissolves and syrup is thickened, about 15 minutes. Stir in liqueur. Chill until cold. To use, drizzle over fresh fruit and garnish with chopped mint and zest.

Can you help?

The Farm’s meat loaf. “Denseâ€? textured, even slicing, meat loaf like the Farm in Delhi for Kathy Payne.

Somerset, Kentucky’s Premiere Inn Located Just Minutes from Lake Cumberland

There is a joke among friends here, “It’s a Phoenix that has risen from the ashes. ”When Charles and Allison Hahn Sobieck purchased the property at 502 North Main Street (in Somerset, Kentucky), there was a lot of work to be done, to say the least. With the vision of a B & B and a home in ruins, there were little choices. The dilapidated structure was removed, then reconstructed as it had been in the 1850’s. It’s a brand new home. A bit of an unusual concept for a bed and breakfast. “We reconstructed the home from scratch. This gave us the benefit of designing every amenity possible along the way, ”said Allison Sobieck, owner. Every room is equipped with many amenities you don’t often find in a traditional bed and breakfast, but rather a fine hotel. Every room has a full sized closet with a pair of micro-fiber robes hanging in them, 400- count Egyptian cotton sheets, cable TV with DVD players, queen sized beds, and a host of other things. For instance, 2 rooms have gas fireplaces and 3 rooms have whirlpool tubs. We even offer many add on amenities such as massage, dinner, flowers, etc…

MICHIGAN The rooms are only half of the reason to come to The Doolin House. Owners Charles and Allison just happen to both be chefs. Some of the breakfast specialties include Caramel Banana French Toast and Southern Eggs Benedict (2 fried green tomatoes topped with 2 slices of smoked bacon, 2 eggs over easy and Hollandaise). Chuck is usually in charge of breakfast and tries to do new and different things every day. Chef Chuck pointed out, “It’s fun to experiment with breakfast. It’s the one meal that encompasses all foods. It’s perfectly acceptable to see smoked salmon or a pork cutlet at the breakfast table. ”For those in no rush to rise and shine, breakfast in bed is served at no additional charge. When you need a weekend get away that’s not too far from home or you are planning your summer vacation to beautiful Lake Cumberland, remember that The Doolin House Bed and Breakfast is only a phone call away.
