Evendale council salaries to increase By Leah Fightmaster

Schools grip SECURITY with strategy, technology By Kelly McBride

School environments have become a security challenge as administrators work to provide a safe place for students to learn. Security is part of the construction plan for Princeton City Schools, where a computerized system requires students to wear ID badges and visitors to show driver’s licenses to enter the middle school and high school buildings. Princeton’s system, called Scholar Chip, scans student IDs as they enter the building, keeping a tally of who comes and goes. Visitors must show ID, and when their information is entered into Scholar Chip, the system scans the national sex offender database before clearing the visitor to enter the building. A printout shows the person’s name, photo and destination. He must wear that badge while in the building, and must surrender it upon leaving. The paper badge is scanned to clear the visitor, and the paper is shredded. The information remains in the system, however, and school administrators can track attendance and traffic in and out of the building, Prince-

ton Director of Operations Steve Castator said. While Princeton High School staff members monitor the entrance, the new Princeton Community Middle School has a secured office, in which a staff member must buzz in the visitor. After being cleared and receiving the ID badge, the visitor must be buzzed out of the office and into the middle school. The middle school was built

with security doors at each of the three wings, allowing administrators and security officers to lock down the school in case of emergency. Princeton employs five student monitor aides and two security officers, and the city of Sharonville provides a school resource officer at each of the two upper-level schools. The elementary schools are equipped with buzzer entries and locked doors. Wyoming primary schools also use a locked door and buzzer entry system, requiring visitors to sign in and wear an ID sticker while in the building. Construction has offered a challenge to Wyoming administrators as middle school students attend classes in modular

units. Visitors must check in at the office unit, and are escorted to their destination. Security cameras keep watch on the temporary campus. A camera and buzzer system allows Wyoming High School office staff to monitor visitors through a locked entrance. “The safety and security of our students is always a priority for the high school, as it is across the district,” Wyoming High School Principal Aaron Marshall said. “One of the great things about Wyoming High School is that our front office staff generally recognizes nearly every guest who buzzes our front door and if they don’t, they certainly go out of their way to offer the first hospitable welcome.” Parochial schools in Wyoming and Sharonville have had the additional challenge of older buildings that hadn’t planned for school security. St. Michael in Sharonville consists of three buildings to educate students in grades kindergarten through eight. Visitors must buzz the locked door and office staff admits them, up the stairs to the office, where they sign in. Each building is locked, and visitors must be escorted among them.

Evendale’s village council approved a pay hike for future council members, but the vote was far from unanimous. The state made changes to the Ohio Public Employee Retirement System in the last year, requiring public employees to earn at least $12,000 a year to qualify for public health retirement benefits. Council members in Evendale earn about $7,800 annually, which would not qualify them for those benefits. Village council proposed raising the monthly salary of future council members to $1,000 a month, which would qualify them for public benefits. Their current salaries are about 9 percent of the county commissioners’, which are set by the state. Only council members who are elected during this year’s general election in November and after would receive that higher salary. Evendale resident Candy Hart said she didn’t think the council should be increasing salaries to allow members to qualify for something at the state level, when it appears that the parameters created for it were to keep them out. “I’m not sure anyone deserves that kind of increase these days,” she said. “I’m kind of ashamed of all of you.” Councilwoman Catherine Hartman agreed with Hart, saying she felt the state changed these rules to exclude more local elected officials and keep the program solvent, but that council shouldn’t be adjusting its pay to get around them. She added that according to the Ohio Municipal League, Evendale’s council members are the already the fourth-highest paid out of 350 villages in the state, and the increase would eventually cost the village about $25,200 more a year. “I don’t think we’re financially in a position to do this,” she said. “... I think it’s improper to give such an increase.” Council’s vote was split, with members Hartman, Chris Schaefer and Stiney Vonderhaar voting against it. Councilmen Jeff Albrinck, Doug Lohmeier and John Ranz Jr. voted for it, while Mayor Don Apking broke the tie with an approval. Want more updates for Evendale?

‘Who’ works the night shift at Sharon Woods? By Kelly McBride

It’s a night shift of another nature. Sharon Woods will present a program called “Creatures of the Night” for ages 8 and older at Sharon Woods on Sept. 21, beginning at 3 p.m. It will feature a PowerPoint presentation on local nocturnal wildlife, according to naturalist Angeli Marczi, who will lead the program. “We’ll end up the program with a live animal encounter featuring our park’s resident screech

owl,” Marczi said. “Screech owls are the smallest of the three owl species we have living in Cincinnati, and are named for their highpitched call that sounds more like a horse whinny than the typical ‘whowho’ that we associate with these nighttime birds.” Sharon Woods is located at 11450 Lebanon Road in Sharonville. A valid Great Parks of Hamilton County Motor Vehicle Permit is required to enter the park. An annual permit costs $10, or a daily permit costs $3.

Springdale assembles citizens police academy The Springdale Police Department is hosting its fourth Citizens Police Academy this week.

they can make informed judgments about the Springdale Police Department, other Law Enforcement Agencies, and police activity. Understanding can dispel suspicions and misconceptions, and increase police/community rapport through this educational process. The police department, in turn, becomes more aware of the feelings and concerns of the community through input from the students. The program is designed to help establish open lines of communication and cooperation in a shared goal of achieving the best police service for the citizens of Springdale. Students will be instructed in the areas of: » overview of the police department and municipal government; » domestic violence, current issues, laws of arrest, search and seizure; » patrol tactics/speed measuring devices/traffic enforcement;

Haag said. The school entrance and all doors are locked at all times during the day, he said. A security camera is mounted at the front door, and visitors are buzzed through locked doors. “The children are trained to not open the door for anyone,” Haag said. Castator said students at Princeton High School have also been cautioned not to let anyone in through the dozens of exterior doors at the high school. Administrators at all of the schools agree that the effort is worthwhile. “Our students are always our top priority,” St. Michael School Principal Shelly Kahny said. “Everything we do is for their safety and well-being.”

Principal Jim Haag said the need for renovation was punctuated after an incident a few years ago in which a man, being chased by police, tried to enter the school through the cafeteria. “Our cooks were smart enough to not let him in,” Haag said.

Dessert event to raise funds, celebrate Gregg Rocca By Kelly McBride

A dessert evening at Hilltop Primary School will celebrate the life of a Wyoming counselor who died earlier this year, and raise funds for a cause he worked hard to promote. Gregg Rocca was a counselor for Wyoming City Schools for 18 years. He became involved with Miracles in Action through his former coworker, Pat Lehman. Lehman had led a student effort to sell beaded jewelry made by Guatemalan women who work with the non-profit group, and Rocca asked how he could help. The Finneytown High School graduate and athlete was also an avid runner, and as a guidance counselor for Wyoming’s three primary schools, he led the Counselor’s Council, Culture Club and Student of the Month program. “He wasn’t flashy, but he was a gentle soul and the students recognized that in him,” Lehman said. “When they were struggling, they knew they could confide in him. “That was his greatest gift,” she said. “They always knew they could turn to him. “He was a quiet, gentle presence, a shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen. “And he had the most wonderful smile.” Rocca was 52 when he passed, after battling cancer for nearly three years.

“Even on those days when he was feeling rotten, he would try to come into work,” Rocca Lehman said. “He wanted to be there with the kids. “He would stick it out as much as he could.” Rocca was pivotal in raising the $50,000 needed to build a library and computer center in the highlands of Guatemala. “I had started the process to build the library, and then Gregg got very sick,” Lehman said. “With his presence and his name, we were able to very quickly reach our

goal.” Both buildings bear Rocca’s name. Miracles in Action,, is focused on educational, vocational and sustainable development projects, offering “a hand up, instead of a handout.” During the Dessert Evening, jewelry and crafts made in Guatemala will be sold, and information about Miracles in Action will be available. The Sept. 26 event begins at 7 p.m. at Hilltop Primary School, 425 Oliver Road in Wyoming. Donations will be accepted for the Guatemalan effort, and contributions will also benefit the Wyoming school libraries. CE-0000559727

DEER PARK — A sure sign that you’re going to win a game or a match is when you have celebratory cupcakes waiting on stand-by. Such was Sept. 12 at Deer Park when the Wyoming High School girls volleyball team invaded and took no prisoners in a 25-3, 25-5, 25-11 victory. For coach Julie Plitt, it was a relaxing and rewarding game. The 16-year coaching veteran notched career win No. 300 in a little less than an hour. She spent 10 years coaching at Reading, took five years off for her kids and has spent the last six years saddled in at Wyoming. “I don’t know how it all happens,” Plitt said. “Year to year you’re doing the same thing, encouraging the girls, and it ends up being 300.” With three consecutive Cincinnati Hills League championships, it’s hard to say how many more wins Plitt could corral for the Cowboys. “I don’t know!” Plitt said laughing. “It depends on how long they let me coach. We’ll see how it goes. We’ve got great JV, freshman and junior high girls. The future looks bright. I hope to have 100 more.” Wyoming’s captains this season are Kelsey Maxwell, Jessica Leish and Megan Schneider. Leish was injured recently, but hopes to return soon. “Once we get everybody back, we’re going to have some depth,” Plitt said. “All of those girls that have been filling their spots have grown stronger. Now, if anything happens, we’ll just put somebody in. I think we’ll make a run in the tournament.” Talent-wise, Wyoming’s as stacked as anyone in Division II. Senior 6-foot-1 hitter Jessica

Leish is going to Indiana on a full ride and imposing junior Madi Maisel is fielding offers in between blocks and kills. “She’s 6-4; it’s hard to teach that,” Plitt said. “She’s got a great swing and she’s strong. She’s going to go somewhere; I’m not sure where. It’s hard to make a decision when you’re 16.” Others on the team are equally as talented and will have their chances to play at higher levels. “Megan Schneider probably could play but she’s not really interested in doing that in college,” Plitt said. “Kelsey Maxwell is probably going to go DIII as a setter and Natalie Burchard could go DIII, if that’s what she chooses to do.” Megan Schneider has the bragging rights of scoring the winning point for Plitt’s mile-

stone win. She did so in front of several others who also played in blue uniforms. “Some of the girls were here from Reading that I coached,” Plitt said. “Their names were on that 100 ball and here they are for 300. That’s what makes it neat.” After a few cupcakes and camera phone shots, the nets were down and it was on to a four-game schedule the following week for Plitt and the women of Wyoming. “I just take it one day at a time and enjoy it as it goes,” she said.

Sister act assists Princeton VB’s growth By Mark D. Motz

SHARONVILLE — What happens in the back yard, stays in the back yard. Unless what happens is wiffleball. Because then there’s going to be some smack talk. Princeton High School senior Maddie Lohmeier - committed to playing volleyball at Wright State University next season - and freshman sister Olivia both start as hitters for the Vikings. Both said they come from a competitive family. Both said they especially like teaming up to beat big brother Christian, a former Princeton athlete now at the University of Dayton. Princeton head coach Heather Sloane sees some of that back-yard ethos during Viking workouts. “This has been fun with them,” she said. “They definitely push each other in practice. They play the same position, so they get a little competitive.” Both girls agreed. “It’s fun to play with your sister, but it’s also a little stressful,” Maddie said. “I don’t want

her to take anything I say the wrong way or anything. I just want us to play well. We try to keep it non-volleyball at home. You want to leave it all on the court.” Olivia said she likes it. “I have somebody who can go through it with me and show me the ropes, to help me be a good varsity player.” Sloane said Olivia picked a good role model. “(Maddie) is a four-year

starter and she’s our strongest all-around player,” she said. “She leads the GMC in aces. Her passing is very controlled. She’s always been a leader on the court.” Not that it’s been an easy road. The Vikings were 0-9 in the GMC Maddie’s freshman year, 7-16 overall. Last season they notched a couple league wins and went 9-13 overall. “When I got here this program had a long way to come

and Maddie has played a major role in that,” Sloane said. “It’s definitely been a journey, but it’s gotten better every season. “I’m really proud of how they’ve all bought in and how they’ve all worked so hard to build the program. We’re never satisfied, but we’re making progress. I look forward to Olivia picking up where her sister left off and helping us to keep improving. “I’m really impressed with (Olivia’s) athletic ability. She is tall, she has a great vertical jump and she is really fast. She’s only going to get better. “We’ve adjusted our lineup to make sure they get as many touches as possible. Valuable is the word for them. They are very valuable to our team and its success.” Olivia described her big sister’s game as “Competitive. Aggressive. Serious. Helpful.” Maddie returned the favor. “I think she’s pretty much the same as me. She takes things to heart and works hard. I actually feel like Olivia is better than me when I was a freshman. She might just pass me up.”



Moeller’s Ragland leads to riches By Scott Springer


KENWOOD — Most wide re-

ceivers who catch 30 passes for 358 yards and four touchdowns as a junior would probably spend the following summer catching more to be sharp for their senior year. Not Moeller High School’s Gus Ragland. After his innings on the mound ended as a pitcher for Moeller’s Division I championship baseball squad, Ragland was off to football camps to play without receiving gloves. Though he had outstanding year on Moeller’s state title football game receiving passes, he’s been throwing them since he was in the first grade. His first two years as a Crusader were also spent at quarterback. Because Moeller had Spencer Iacovone back, coach John Rodenberg moved the 6-foot-3, 200-pound Ragland to wideout for his junior year. “It was a lot different,” Ragland said. “There’s a lot more responsibility at quarterback. Playing receiver was enjoyable. It helped me understand my receivers a little bit more.” For the Crusaders coaching staff, moving Ragland back simplified their 2013 offense. Like a chess board, Moeller moved their pieces. The blue and gold reloaded with No. 14 at quarterback, speedsters Chase Pankey and Isaiah Gentry at receiver and a 6-foot-5 Jake Hausmann, who looks like your prototypical Moeller rugged tight end. “We thought going into this

year that Gus was very similar to Spencer (Iacovone) so we knew we could keep the same scheme,” Rodenberg said. “We knew he needed a little bit of experience throwing the football, but he’s a leader and a leader in the school.” Thus far, Pankey, Gentry, seniors Jack Gruber and Jamie Rieger and the sophomore Hausmann have been rifled the ball from Ragland. In the opener against Indianapolis Pike, the red-head with the rubber arm found junior Pankey in the final minute for the win. “With the talent we have at wide receiver, we feel we can go deep a lot,” Ragland said. “It was a great play call. I went back and let the ball go and my teammate made a great play.” Ragland followed that with a dismantling of Covington Catholic going 20-25 for a pair of touchdowns. “We took an approach where we were working on our pass game all week,” Ragland said.

Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy graduate John Lloyd trotted onto the field at Nippert Stadium, booted his first collegiate punt 41 yards and pinned Purdue University on its own 12-yard-line Aug. 31. Lloyd played behind all-Big East punter Patrick O’Donnell the last two years. He turned down a scholarship to one of UC’s biggest rivals to play for his hometown school. “Louisville actually offered me (a scholarship),” said Lloyd, an Evendale resident. “And there were some other schools in the mix. I was also looking at Michigan, a couple MAC schools, N. C. St. and Texas A & M, but this was home for me.” After standing on the sideline with his helmet in his hand for two seasons, Lloyd was asked to recall his thoughts as he trotted on the field to make

“We went out and let loose. ” Rodenberg thinks the year at wide receiver helped Ragland in hitting his routes. He also admits that he doesn’t mind chucking the ball, even if the statue of Gerry Faust looks on at every practice. “We want to (throw),” Rodenberg said. “We got sort of locked with Keith (Watkins) last year. We weren’t throwing efficiently. This year we’re kind of forcing ourselves to do it.” In baseball, Ragland’s developed a unique habit of following through so hard that his hat falls off of his head. Fortunately, the football Crusaders headgear contains a strap so Ragland’s kept his “head about him” in more ways than one this season.

his first college punt on Saturday afternoon. “It was great,” he said. “Honestly, it was a little bit of a blur. It was exactly how I thought it would be, and I was happy to get the chance. All the cards fell in the right places. I’ve been working hard all summer, and Sam (Geraci) has been pushing me, so I think that helped a lot.” Lloyd follows some excellent punters at UC, including Kevin Huber of the Bengals. He readily admits he needs to be more consistent, but when he hits the ball well, it flies off his leg and the redshirt junior is happy to be on the field. Lloyd played a variety of positions at CHCA. “I played all over,” he said. “I also played some tight end and back-up quarterback. I did a little bit of everything.”

her luxurious long hair and writing the words on her bald head. The sari, however, brought her an introduction to the editor of Auburn Daily News, who admired it. She met with Usha and published a series of stories about India, and Usha’s family. This made her somewhat of a celebrity and the people in the small town embraced her with overwhelming warmth. Usha had been writing since college and was published many times in the newspaper. Coming from a large family, it had always been her dream to adopt more children after

her daughter and son were born. Her two grandsons from her daughter were a delight. When her son opened his heart to adopt a 5-year-old orphan boy, it was love at first sight for Usha. His name is Mahatma and Usha says, “My grandson is a diamond in the rough. He has a heart of gold. He is smart and carries a lot of compassion for young and old alike.” Mahatma calls her Dadima (grandma in the Indian language), but she is his mother, too. Then, through no fault of Usha’s, she was not allowed to see Mahatma. Heartbroken and missing the bond they shared,

she tried legal means to gain visitation rights as a grandmother, only to discover she had no rights. A friend suggested she use the memories from her scrapbooks, poems and photos of Mahatma’s development to write, “Do You Know Where My Grandma Is?”, a book which has ultimately been a healing balm to the rift which separated Usha from him. Mutual love is in every sentence. It tells of the life they shared together and the void Usha filled in Mahatma’s life. To order her book call 888795-4274 ext. 7879 or visit,,, or visit your local bookstore. Usha has vowed never to give up her fight to change Ohio law. Mahatma spent the first five years of his life in an orphanage, he missed out on the chance to have an adoptive mother as Usha’s son is not married and he was separated from a loving grandmother who tried to make up for all the loss. After reading Dr. Phil’s best seller “Life Code”, she wants to appear on his show to relate her story and hopefully bring the grandparents’ plight to national attention.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Feed the beast, or the people?

Richard Schwab’s recent editorial (“Fifty years of America’s food policy disintegrates,” Sept. 4 Tri-County Press) raises a good question; “Who should care for hungry, sick, homeless, or disabled Americans?” Mr. Schwab obviously worships at the altar of the donkey, and preaches “cradle to grave” government reliance. Americans are obligated to care for their countrymen, but who should be assigned the task: the

government or private/religious groups? When the government provides support for the needy, it often becomes political. In past elections, Democrats have successfully targeted individuals, on government support, for their vote .The message to those in need, “Vote Democratic or those evil Republicans will take away your EBT card.” How cruel to manipulate the needy for political gain. Second, who would use resources more efficiently? Give a thousand dollars to a soup kitch-

en and they could provide over a thousand meals. Give a thousand dollars to a government food program and you might pay for the monthly health insurance premium of the government administrator. Third, who will do more to foster self-reliance? Government support programs often do little to champion self reliance, but create generations of dependents. Also those on government support are fed an amoral, temporal, and relativistic message (contraception for everyone and abortion on demand). Private/

religious groups often eliminate dependency, provide moral clarity, and shine light on the path to eternal salvation. Contrary to Mr. Schwab’s view, every problem in our culture doesn’t require a government solution. Americans in hard times deserve better than a bureaucratic government program. Individuals citizens working/volunteering for private/religious groups offer the best hope for the mind, body, and soul of Americans in need. Kevin L. Kellner Sharonville

CH@TROOM Sept. 11 question Should local high schools have American Indian nicknames or use American Indian mascots. Why or why not?

“The use of American Indian Mascots never used to be a concern. Miami University at Oxford changed from Redskins to Red Hawks in 1997. Somehow it had been OK from 1888 till then. I think if there is a large population of Native Americans located in the area of a school they should have a say on this matter. E.G the Florida State University polled the local Native Americans who had no problem with the moniker of Seminoles. I am quite sure most names are fine with Native Americans. However the term Redskins does seem to cause some concern for the NFL Team in Washington and should be re-evaluated. I can only hope the Reds are not asked to change their moniker from Reds because it denotes WWII communists. Now what to do about those Cleveland Glenville Tarblooders? Go fig-

NEXT QUESTION If negotiations fail to secure Syria’s chemical weapons should the U.S. conduct military strikes against Syria? Why or why not? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to with Chatroom in the subject line.



“No, American Indian names should not be used by schools. Why? Because they don’t want us to use their names, just like Blacks don’t want certain names used for them, Italians don’t want certain names used, and so forth. “It’s not for us to decide. We have to respect their wishes.”


“This is a simple question for me. I have a deep respect and affection for Native Americans. I have lived near reservations, had Native American

Author’s grand quest to be involved

You can meet such interesting people at the Sharonville Library, and that is where I met Usha Gandhi, a remarkable woman who lives in West Chester Township. Most of us do not know what it means to travel thousands of miles to live on a new continent. Evelyn After college, Perkins Usha followed her husband COLUMNIST from Gujarat, India, to Greenville, S.C., in 1969. She had a degree in education and was full of youthful enthusiasm. Imagine the culture shock, especially when they lived in Massachusetts. A lovely autumn turned into a brutal, snowy winter that was 180 degrees different from India where the heat can burst thermometers in the summer. She missed Indian condiments and her mother’s biriyani, a ricebased dish made with spices, fish, different meats and vegetables. Being unfamiliar with lettuce, she cooked it. Usha endured jibes about wearing a sari, and tiresome questions about whether hers had been an arranged marriage. She considered renting a helicopter with a long streamer that read, “I am neither a child bride nor did my parents arrange my marriage.” Failing that, she thought about shaving


friends and learned about the culture and the present day challenges. “However, I had a child that graduated from Anderson (Redskins) High School and spent many times on football and baseball fields yelling “Go, Redskins!” It seems to me that there are so many names in the English dictionary that certainly every high school and college in this country could select a non-Native American name and build loyalty and competition around it. “In business and even nonprofit organizations, names change all the time. It can be fun to celebrate a new name. Let’s support our schools in developing new names that don’t disrespect Native American tribes and culture.”


“Only school teams located on reservation lands should be allowed to use traditional Native American names. Miami University even changed its mascot to Redhawks some time ago for this reason.

“American settlers and soldiers stole the whole continent from Native Americans; it isn’t too much to ask to allow native people the cultural dignity of changing offensive, stereotypical names. “People will try to argue that a new name doesn’t reflect heritage accurately; well, that’s the same argument used by racists in the South who preserve the Confederate flag.”


“Syria, Common Core, ObamaCare, Quantitative Easing, Benghazi, Hillary 2016 ... Think the country has more important things to worry about. Go Redskins!”


“I think you are referring to the Anderson Redskins. YES, I think this tradition should continue mainly because this is the school’s chosen name and mascot from many years ago. If some are offended ... that is life!”

Ragweed season begins in SW Ohio The Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency has recorded ragweed in recent pollen counts signifying ragweed has begun to bloom in Greater Cincinnati. Ragweed is a summer annual that produces abundant pollen and is the primary cause of hay fever. Although ragweed is already present, September Megan tends to be Hummel COMMUNITY PRESS its peak month and GUEST COLUMNIST those who suffer from allergies may have increased symptoms during the next several weeks. Ragweed plants are dominant in the Midwest and produce billions of pollen grains which are easily caught by the wind and spread throughout the region. The severity of hay fever depends on the amount of pollen in the air and the degree of sensitivity of the person. On cloudy, windless or rainy days, the average sufferer may have fewer symptoms due to little pollination and dissemination of the pollen. When the weather becomes hot, dry, sunny and windy, symptoms may spike and return. A frost usually ends the hay fever season for most sufferers. To reduce exposure to ragweed and other pollens and molds, the Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency recommends: » Avoid areas with freshly cut grass and avoid lawn care activities, such as raking leaves or working with compost. » Minimize outdoor activity between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. – when pollen levels are highest. » After being outdoors, it is best to shower and change clothing, as pollen can adhere to clothing, skin and hair. Be aware that pets can also bring pollen into your home. » Keep windows closed and use an air conditioner in the home and car as much as possible to reduce the amount of allergens entering. » Don't hang sheets or clothing outside to dry. Pollens can collect on them. » Contact an allergist or doctor for medical advice. The Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency tracks pollen and mold levels on weekdays and posts the counts by 10 a.m. at 513946-7753 and Additional information can be found in the Living with Allergies brochure, available for download at or mailed by request. Megan Hummel is public relations coordinator of the Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency.

aunted by God: The Life of Dorothy Day” is coming to St. Michael Church in Sharonville Sunday, Sept. 22. This special performance of Lisa Wagner-Carollo’s acclaimed dramatic portrayal of the co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement will benefit a new production based on the true story of St. Gabriel the Archangel Church in New Orleans. The show is part of the Still Point Theatre Collective based in Chicago. Lisa Wagner-Carollo founded the theater company in 1993. In 2013 the group celebrates 20 years of professional theater productions and outreach programs for the underserved. The group is planning a production to tell the story of the resurrection of St. Gabriel the Archangel Church community following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. From 2006 to 2008 St. Michael Church sent more than 100 adults and teens on six separate mission trips to assist St. Gabriel in its rebuilding effort in New Orleans. Anna Geoppinger helped lead those groups during their three-year commitment to help St. Gabriel pastor The Rev. Doug Doussan, resurrect the St. Gabriel Church community. “We did whatever was needed at the time,” Geoppinger said. The mission volunteers helped gut homes, rebuild homes, planted trees, bushes and flowers. Wagner-Carollo performed her show at St. Gabriel Church in New Orleans in 2008. She was inspired by a presentation Doussan made at a conference she attended in 2011. Geoppinger said WagnerCarollo returned to New Orleans last April to meet with the people of St. Gabriel the Archangel. “She ended up getting all kinds of people to meet with her, talk with her, and tell her the story about what happened and what they experienced from Katrina,” Geoppinger said. “They decided they were going to do a theater production on the story of St. Gabriel and Katrina.” Now Still Point is producing the “resurrection story” of this New Orleans parish. They hope to inspire audiences and spark meaningful dialogue to bring lessons learned by the St. Gabriel resurrection story into our own faith communities. The overall cost for Still Point to produce the new St. Gabriel

Rita ushers in baking season with crust, pecan pie For years it was like a gray culinary cloud over my head. I called it pie crust envy. My mom was the first to try to teach me to make a flaky and tender pie crust. “Just don’t overwork the dough, use a light hand,” she told me. At the time I read something in a cookbook that said “work the shortRita ening into the Heikenfeld flour until it’s RITA’S KITCHEN all the size of small peas.” So I tried to do just that. The crust rolled out easily and I baked what I thought was the most beautiful apple pie in the world. I took it to our church kitchen for bingo and I’ll never forget the look on Ruth Haglage’s face as she tried to cut into the crust. She sawed and sawed at that crust and finally broke through. I was so embarrassed. Ruth knew I was a novice pie baker and told me not to worry, that the filling was delicious and the crust was OK. After that disaster, every time I made pie crust by hand I was filled with anxiety. Then I met Perrin Rountree. Perrin is an Anderson Township reader and excellent Southern cook and baker. She worked with me at my cooking school at McAlpin’s. Perrin shared her recipe for pie crust with a secret ingredient. That was years ago and the crust has never let me down. No more pie crust envy!

Perrin Rountree’s no-fail pie crust

You’ll think you’re in cooking class with these detailed instructions, but they are worth following.

ator before using). Roll out on lightly floured surface from center out. I sprinkle a bit of flour on top of the dough so it doesn’t stick to the rolling pin, or you can skip flour and roll it out between wax or parchment paper. Roll into a circle inches wider than pie plate.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Yes, you can use the food processor, too. Just use the pulse button.

Rita’s pecan pie

I use dark corn syrup. Light corn syrup gives a “softer” flavor. Check out my blog for chocolate pecan pie.

Crust for one pie 3 large eggs, beaten until foamy 1 cup sugar 2 tablespoons butter, melted 1 cup corn syrup, dark or light 11⁄2 teaspoons vanilla 1 heaping cup pecans, halved or chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat eggs, sugar, butter, syrup and vanilla well with whisk. Stir in nuts. Pour into crust. Bake 45-55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out fairly clean. Check after 45 minutes. Pie will be puffed and golden and jiggle a bit in the center but that’s OK. Cool a couple of hours before serving.

Can you help?

Rita made her pecan pie using her friend Perrin’s no-fail pie crust.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD. 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 ⁄2 teaspoon baking powder (the secret ingredient) 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 cup Crisco shortening, chilled (I use Crisco sticks) 1 ⁄2 cup ice cold water

Whisk together dry ingredients. Cut shortening into 1 ⁄2-inch pieces. Scatter over flour mixture and, using a

fork or pastry blender, cut shortening into flour until mixture resembles coarse crumbs with some large pieces remaining (about the size of peas – yes, it will work!). This is what will give you flakiness. Sprinkle half the cold water over and stir and draw flour with fork from bottom to top, distributing water evenly. Add more water

until dough is moist enough to hold together when you roll a little bit into a ball. I usually use up all the water. Divide in half and shape into two balls. Flatten balls into round disks. I like to refrigerate dough anywhere from 30 minutes to overnight, but that’s not necessary. (You can also freeze the dough for a couple of months, thawing in refriger-

Dance-a-thon benefits Cancer Community For the second year in a row, Jeremy and Desireé Mainous, franchise owners of the Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Blue Ash, have leveraged their dance talents and organizational skills to help beat cancer by choosing Cancer Support Community to receive the proceeds of their annual Swinging for Charity Gala and Dancea-thon. They presented a check to CSC for $2,162 that will be used to help fund the professionally led programs of support, education, and hope that are offered completely free of charge for people with cancer, their families and friends, and cancer survivors. The event once again included live dance music by Leroy Ellington and his E-funk Band as well as recorded favorites provided by a DJ. Attendees enjoyed dancing, of course, as well as the opportunity to take group dance classes and enjoy performances by professional and pro-am dancers throughout the evening.

Physicians test shared appointments for diabetics You’ve just learned that you have diabetes, a chronic, if manageable, illness. Countless questions swirl through your head and you may wonder just how to cope with this diagnosis. Mercy Health, which provides quality care with compassion in your neighborhood through its network of care, can help. Mercy Health physicians Dr. Briana McFawn, an internal medicine specialist practicing from Eastgate Family Care, and Dr. Naila Goldenberg, an endocrinologist practicing from Deerfield Family Medicine, are trialing shared medical appoint-

ments for their diabetic patients. In a shared medical appointment, the physi- Goldenberg cian sees multiple patients with the same chronic medical condition in a group for follow-up or routine care. Benefits to patients include: » improved physician access; » opportunities for added education around their condition; » a chance to share experiences and advice with

other patients with the same disease. “Shared medical appointments provide an innovative, McFawn interactive approach to healthcare in a relaxed, personalized and supportive environment. People can ask as many questions as they like and the interactivity helps us learn from each other,” McFawn said. “At the same time, shared appointments free our time to help more patients. Instead of using office visit time to deliver

the same information to each patient one on one, we give the same, important information in a group setting, opening office visits for others who may need to see a doctor right away,” Goldenberg said. Early data show that the appointments improve the patient and

practice staff experience. McFawn practices from Mercy Health - Eastgate Family Medicine, 4421 Eastgate Blvd., Suite 300, Cincinnati 45245. To find out more about Dr. McFawn or to make an appointment with her, please call 513-752-8000. Goldenberg practices from Mercy Health –

THE ART OF SAVING LIVES This is a free-flowing artery thanks to tPA. It may look like modern art, but it’s a lifesaver. tPA is a drug that breaks up blood clots, keeps arteries flowing and helps limit the damaging effects of a stroke. Today, thousands of neurologists all over the world use tPA, but the discovery happened right here in Cincinnati at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center’s Comprehensive Stroke Center. We continue to pioneer breakthroughs in science so we can perfect the art of saving lives.

JFS looks to new era under Miller

Jewish Family Service had one overriding message at its annual meeting June 25: JFS has grown and transformed from an agency that was in a survival mode for several years into a strong organization that stands out amongst the crowd. Mark Miller, who was installed as the new president of the board, opened with the statement, “It is truly my pleasure to assume the presidency of JFS at a time of unequaled opportunity and excitement. Our agency is financially sound, strategically strong, and JFS is ready to meet the needs of the Jewish Community for years to come.” While giving a recap of Jewish Family Service’s history, Miller explained how the organization reached this successful point. He thanked the past

presidents, board and staff for their hard work and dedication that helped JFS transform from an agency which was paralyzed by cuts during tough financial times to an agency with the confidence and vision to take advantage of growth opportunities.

“In 2012 we began to see the fruits of our labor,” Miller said, citing as examples the “Barbash Family Vital Support Center that will become the crown jewel of JFS’s service efforts to those in need in the Jewish community” and the “We Give A… campaign created to get people excited and engaged in Jewish Family Service.” Prior to being installed as president, Miller received praise from outgoing president Michael Schwartz who said, “I’m passing the gavel to Mark with confidence, with excitement for what’s to come, and with pride of what we have accomplished. I know he’ll do a great job.” Schwartz served a three-year term in order to complete a restructuring of the board to a true governance model. He was given a tzedekah box for his commitment and accomplishments as the Jewish Family Service president. He now serves as the board’s immediate past president. Joining Miller and Schwartz as new officers of the board are Andi Levenson, vice president; Larry Juran, treasurer, and Susan Shorr, secretary. Bruce Baker, a past president, will serve a threeyear term along with new board members Melanie Blumental, Joni Burton, Alyce Ellison, Dale Horne, Mark Knue, Tom Smith and Michael Sutter. Lauren Scharf was appointed by the board president for a one-year term. Suzy Marcus Goldberg, Elaine Kaplan and Max Yamson were reelected to a second threeyear term. Members remaining on the board are Stephen Goldberg, Steve Holman, Daniel Kerbel, Danny Lipson, Leslie Miller, Daniel Phillips, Pam Sacherman, Scott Slovin

and Sarita Zilch. John Youkilis and Gary Smith rotated off the board. Youkilis and Smith were both given special recognition for their time as board members. “My heart will always be with JFS,” Smith said. Youkilis agreed and added that he supports the agency because “Jewish Family Service always deals with reality on the ground.” Many awards were presented during the evening. » The Miriam Dettelbach Award was presented to Larry Juran and Danny Lipson. This award is given in honor of the first executive director of Jewish Family Service as recognition of exceptional volunteer service to the agency. Both board members were instrumental in turning the Barbash Family Vital Support Center from a dream into a reality. » On behalf of the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, its CEO Shep Englander accepted a plaque recognizing its support of Jewish Family Service over the past 70 years. » Scott Slovin, representing Friends of Bigs & Littles, presented 15-yearold Tianna Woodford with a $1,000 check as the recipient of the Betty R.

presented to Jewish Family Service staff recognizing years they have been with the agency. Angie Bowling, Erin McNew and Sue Warm received a fiveyear Staff Longevity Award. Dora Baehner, Edie Dine, Fran Gafvert and Ruth Moeddel were recipients of the 10-year award. In her executive director report Beth Schwartz said, “I am proud of Jewish Family Service’s ability to step it up to serve the 4,707 individual lives in 2012. This has been a tremendous increase in the number of people who are helped by this agency. With the staff as the backbone of the services we provide, and the Board’s support and direction, we can continue to grow into our vision of the agency we wish to become.” She took a moment from the public meeting to speak directly to the JFS staff, urging them to dream big and to believe in their ability to truly change the lives of the people that they serve and to strengthen our community with an even deeper impact. She implored staff, board members and community members to partner with Jewish Family Service on this transformative journey saying, “We can’t do it alone. So let’s do it together as a community and show everyone how We Give A…” The meeting closed with all attendees given a marker and a paper frame with the “I GIVE A…too!” tagline. They were asked to draw themselves into the Jewish Family Service story and to become a part of the agency’s vision. The drawings will be hung on a display in the lobby of the Mayerson JCC.
