Wyoming fall fest features run, ride

By Kelly McBride

kmcbride@communitypress.com

Wyoming’s Fall Festival could hit its stride, with the 5K/10K Run for the Kids, to benefit Wyoming Youth Services. The community run, part of the annual festival, will start and finish as the Recreation Center, with a route that covers streets in the Oak Park area. Check-in opens at 7 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, and the race begins at 7:30 a.m. Pre-registration is encouraged, and is available through Sept. 29 at the Wyoming Recreation Center, City of Wyoming office and GNC Woodlawn. Forms also are available at www.wyo-

mingyouthservices.com. Race packets should be picked up on Friday, Oct. 5, at the GNC store in Woodlawn from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Money raised through the race will benefit Youth Services, as funds from state and local grants have decreased, according to the agency. “Fundraising activities are a vital part of our existence, allowing us to continue our mission to serve youth and their families in Wyoming,” said Laura Bence, who is co-chairing the run. “Everyone in the community benefits from the counseling, prevention and service programs offered by Wyoming Youth Services,” she said.

Sponsors this year include GNC, Apex Chiropractic and WEllness Center, Christian Science Reading Room Wyoming, Frost Brown Todd LLC, Maple Knoll Communities Inc. and WyomingOhioRentals.com. Fees for the race include $30 for participants ages16 and older, and $15 for those ages 15 and younger. Entry fees include a Tshirt and goodie bag. The 5K run is part of Fall Festival, which includes the “Trackless Train,” from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are $2 per person for each ride, though unlimited rides are included with the advance purchase of a ticket to the North See FEST, Page A2

Gorman farm considers new plan for building By Leah Fightmaster lfightmaster@communitypress.com

Although Gorman Heritage Farm didn’t receive the Impact 100 grant its staff was hoping for and is considering other options, members aren’t ready to discuss those plans. The farm,10052 Reading Road, applied for a grant from non-profit organization Impact 100 in April to build what was planned to be a 2,200-to-2,400 square foot additional building for events and

classes. The grant, which is for more than $100,000, comprised at least a third of the proposed $300,000 budget for the project. If the farm won the grant, additional funding for the building would have come from personal and business donations, as well as a contribution of up to $150,000 from the village of Evendale. Council agreed at its September meeting to give the farm up to that amount if it received the grant. Representatives from the farm, as well as four other organi-

zations, gave their final presentations to Impact 100 Sept. 20, but were not selected as one of two winners. Vicki Foster, marketing and events manager for Gorman Heritage Farm, said they are coming up with some alternate plans to raise money for the new building, but added that they would rather not discuss what exactly they will be yet.

Glendale retreat reaches out to women By Kelly McBride kmcbride@communitypress.com

A Glendale resident has organized a local retreat she hopes will help women find renewal. Robin O’Neal-Kissel has planned a weekend gathering with activities to promote quiet reflection and joyful communication. She’s working with Glenda Miles of Springboro to bring the Creative Collaborative Retreat to the Transfiguration Spirituality Center on Albion Avenue. O’Neal-Kissel hopes women who attend will find personal healing. “It allows you to be stronger and hole in the rest of your life,” she said. “There’s this piece of us that we push aside, but when we nourish it, you go back into your life strong, peaceful and connected.”

Sharonville has increased security at its city council meetings similar to measures used during Hamilton County Municipal Court proceedings at the Sharonville municipal building. Visitors must place loose items from their pockets into bins that are set on a table outside council chambers. Sharonville police officers search any bags being brought into chambers, and visitors are scanned with hand-held metal detectors. It’s a change that has been under discussion for several years, according to Safety Service Director Ted Mack. “I think the last thing that the elected would want is for residents or those working in Sharonville to stay away from our public meetings due to lack of security,” he said. Mayor Virgil Lovitt explained that Hamilton County Court has been using similar security for their court proceedings at the Sharonville building for many years. “We are transitioning the

Open (fire)houses in Sharonville, Springdale By Kelly McBride kmcbride@communitypress.com

Sharonville and Springdale fire departments are hosting open houses this month as part of Fire prevention Week. Here is a look at events in each community:

Sharonville

Sharonville Fire Department is opening its doors to the public in a series of three open house events. It’s the second year that tours will be offered, along with activities and a chili cook-off. “A few different firemen will cook chili,” Firefighter Amy Nutley said. “People love the way firemen cook.” Hot dogs, snacks and drinks will also be available. Activities are designed to include kids and offer information to the entire family. Kids can make their way through a maze that simulates rooms in a house, with a toy baby at the end for them to rescue. Freddie the Fire Engine, a remote-controlled vehicle, will interact with kids. A simulated house fire can be extinguished with a fire house that flips down the wooden flames when the target is hit. Visitors can learn how to properly use a fire extinguisher. “We can light fires with a propane tank and teach people how to shoot the fire extinguisher,” Nutley said.

Sparky the fire dog will visit the Springdale Fire Department's open house Oct. 6. PROVIDED “We teach the method, where to aim and how to squeeze and help them put the fire out.” Among other activities, honor guard members of Sharonville Professional Firefighters Local 4498 will post colors at each location. » Oct. 8 at 11637 Chester Road. » Oct. 10 at 11210 Reading Road » Oct. 12 at 7150 Fields Ertel Road. All open houses are 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Springdale

The Springdale Fire Department’s 22nd annual open house Saturday, Oct. 6, runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at 12147 Lawnview Drive. Food and beverages will

be available, as visitors are invited to tour the firehouse and participate in activities that will educate children and adults alike, and put fire in perspective. This year, the department will demonstrate a bedroom fire. “We are going to build a bedroom and simulate if a cigarette, or some playing with matches, catches the room on fire, to see how the fire evolves,” Chief Fire Inspector Tom Lindsey said. Lindsey said he’s expecting more than the 400 visitors who participated last year. Among them will be residents of Maple Knoll Village, Lindsey said. They will learn about fire prevention, safety and the importance of smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, as well as a program that provides vital information in an emergency. Lindsey said literature will explain the “Vial of Life.” A paper with important personal information is placed in a vial, then attached by a magnet inside the resident’s freezer. A sign on the refrigerator leads emergency workers to the vial. Sparky the fire dog will participate, and Cincinnati Reds mascot Gapper will make an appearance. The day starts with a fire extinguisher demonstration at 11 a.m, with a University Air Care helicopter display around noon and the bedroom fire demo at 2 p.m.

leeches, treated wounds and extracted teeth. Jerome Goodwin of Woodlawn and Donald Lee McGuire of West Chester Township own Glendale’s newest barber shop, GMG at 276 E. Sharon Road. They don’t perform surgery or bleed their customers with leeches, but they do bring a wealth of artistic tonsorial experience. Goodwin has been in the business for 50 years. He opened his first shop in 1965 while he was still employed at National Distillery, where he worked for 25 years.An ambitious man, he realized he was not advancing there, and he wanted to be independent. He graduated from barber college in 1966 and worked in Gene Jenkins establishment. He has owned shops in Lockland, Wyoming and Woodlawn. He bought the Wyoming barber shop from Leon Williams, who used to cut Goodwin’s father’s hair. At 91 years of age, Williams is still active in the profession and serves as an idol to Goodwin who says he loves him to death. We have well-known

Actually, they are neighbors to Addison Clipson Associated Architects Inc. located just next door. The relocation to Glendale came about because it was time to downsize. McGuire noticed that Jerome has regained his easy-going personality since the move a month ago. The change has brought less pressure and he is more comfortable. Married for 46 years with three daughters, he is the proud grandfather of seven wonderful grandchildren. McGuire remarked that Goodwin is known everywhere and has enjoyed national press coverage. When they attended President Obama’s Eden Park rally, Channel 12 broadcaster Joe Webb called him over and embraced him. In folklore, the barber shop has been represented as a place for news and advice. A 1999 Cincinnati Enquirer article about Goodwin stated “Everyone's welcome in the barber shop, and everyone's welcome to

speak out,” so some things never change. McGuire was employed at Formica for 45 years, and he is another industrious individual who held down more than one job at a time. He worked with Jerome off and on for 20 years. Married for 38 years and father to two sons, his current delight is a oneyear-old grandson who dances the two-step to country music. McGuire began barbering in 1975, but got burned out after 10 years of working full time at Formica and then cutting hair. Now that he is retired, he was amenable to Goodwin’s suggestion about opening the Glendale site. They refurbished the location, doing some of the work themselves and hiring others to complete the wiring, floors, lighting and walls to their taste. Guys probably don’t pay much attention to a barber shop floor, but GMG’s is lovely. They cut women’s hair too, so ladies, you are as welcome to experience the ambiance and good conversation as are the men who frequent the shop.

5 Wyoming seniors among National Merit semifinalists By Kelly McBride kmcbride@communitypress.com

Five Wyoming High School seniors are among 16,000 nationally who have been named National Merit Scholarship semifinalists. The students, Ashley Berg, Caroline Felner, Sarah Jobalia, Rebeca Kahn and Otto Warmbier, could be considered for the finalist competition. Winners are selected according to a finalist’s academic record, information about the school’s curricula and grading system, two sets of test scores, the high school official’s written

recommendation, information about the student’s activities and leadership, and an essay written by the finalist. National Merit Scholarship winners will be announced in February. “Being named a National Merit semifinalist is quite an honor for these outstanding seniors,” Superintendent Susan Lang said. “This designation will open doors for future educational opportunities as they are among the top students in the nation. “They have truly demonstrated academic success,” she said. “I congratulate the students, their families and the staff at

Wyoming High School on this prestigious honor and wish the students the best in their future endeavors.” Principal Aaron Marshall commended the students as representatives of Wyoming High School. “Each of them has excelled in the classroom and should be congratulated for their accomplishment,” Marshall said. “Wyoming High School continues to be a place of excellence because of students like these.” For more about your community, visit www.Cincinnati.com/ Wyoming.

Capping off a great idea

ts. Peter and Paul Academy students have joined Laura Jansing, Erin Reilly and Megan Reilly, seniors from Mount Notre Dame High School, to raise money for “Caps for the Cure,” which will benefit “The Cure Starts Now Foundation.” This is a national organization that came into being after a couple’s young daughter was diagnosed with brain cancer. It was discovered that funding for

research was in very short supply. The “Cure Starts Now Foundation” has joined with parents and teachers across the country to create awareness and fund research for this cancer. The Caps for a Cure organization specifically focuses on pediatric brain research. The MND students came to SPPA to educate the students about the importance of this research and how they can

help. SPPA students were given facts about pediatric brain cancer, the devastation it causes families of victims and the small amount of research that is being done to advance the find for a cure. Students were asked to wear a cap to show their support for this research and to donate a dollar for pediatric brain cancer research.

The Springdale Senior Citizens Club has sponsored a program that teaches kids to be safe. A book, titled “Personal Safety, Smart Choices for Life,” will be given to families of Princeton fourthgraders during parent-teacher conferences this fall. Community Safety Net produces the books that are paid for through local sponsors. The Springdale club has organized the local program, and representatives presented it to the school district during the Princeton Board of Education meeting Sept. 10. Bob Wetterer and Ed Knox attended the meeting on behalf of the senior club, which will provide about 400 books, valued at $15 each. “We’re proud, as Springdale seniors, to provide these books on safety,” Wetterer said. Corey DesJarlais, national safety director of Community Safety Net, explained the program, which includes safety books on drugs, fire and farm/rural topics. “They’re designed as a family resource,” DesJarlais said. After reading the book as a family and watching the interactive DVD, kids can sign on to the company’s website, www.communitysafetynet, to take a quiz, and they can win prizes. “The Springdale Senior Citizens stepped up to the plate and wanted to spearhead this effort in

Princeton fourth-graders will receive this book on personal safety. PROVIDED your district,” DesJarlais said. “This ties into our school safety program and will help to solidify that,” Princeton Superintendent Gary Pack said. Springdale Elementary Principal Kelly Wilham thanked the Springdale seniors. “We are blessed to have such an engaged community organization that continually gives back to generations of students,” she said. “This is just one more example of how our students benefit from our strong community partnerships.” Members of the Princeton community are invited to contribute to the program as book sponsors. Jim Koverman, the company’s project coordinator, said those sponsors will be listed in the front of each book. For more information, or to contribute, contact Koverman at jim@communitysafetynet.com, or call (888) 854-9582.

Princeton senior proud of recent accolade By Nick Dudukovich

ndudukovich@communitypress.com

SHARONVILLE — Princeton senior David Spraul was recently named to the Ohio Cup AllTournament water polo team after scoring 11 goals in four games Sept. 8-9. Princeton went 2-2 at the tournament, which was in Worthington, and earned wins over Kilbourne and Glenoak. Spraul was one of six field players from 16 different teams to be recognized. Here, Spraul talks about the accomplishment, as well as the Vikings’ season. Question: Princeton hadn’t had a player named to the Ohio Cup team in five years. What does that accomplishment mean to you? Answer: “I’m very excited about it, like you said, somebody hasn’t been named in five years. It’s good to represent the water

Spraul

polo team. I’ve been playing for four years, it’s something great to achieve after four years of playing.” Q. In your opinion, what’s it take to be a good

scorer? A. “It’s something you’ve got to work on. I’ve been watching the sport for 10 years and playing for four years, and I’ve watched all these techniques…To do well and succeed on offense, you have to constantly be moving. You just have to pick the corners where the goal isn’t and read the goalie basically.” Q. How did you get into the sport? A. “I’ve been swimmer almost all of my life, and I actually have two older brothers (Doug and Mikey) that played the sport. They inspired me to play

water polo and I wanted to play with my triplet brother, Erik Spraul. Q. The team is 13-8 on the year. What do you think about the season to this point? A. “I feel like our season’s going well. We’ve been working hard every practice in and out of the water. We work strategically and do well in games. I give a lot of credit to our coach (Chad Packer). He’s been here my four years. He’s been preparing us for every game…” Q. What’s the biggest win this season? A. “I feel like our biggest win was against St. Xavier during the Milford Invitational. It was a 9-8 game, but we were actually down going into the third and fourth quarter. We came back and won 9-8 with my brother Erik scoring. That was a really big win.” Q. Along with Dylan Dykes and Erik, you are part of a trio of

senior leaders who have played four years. What’s it been like playing with those guys? A. I’ve known Dylan since preschool and we’ve done every sport together. They work hard with me they’re committed with me and they push me…Erik is good and fast, Dylan teaches me really good defense. They’re both all-around players and they’re teaching me good stuff I need to know…” Q. Coach Packer said after the St. Xavier win this team has a legitimate shot to make a run at the state tournament. What do you think? Can this team make a run? A. “I believe we need to get a little more work in…but if we work hard until the end of the season, we’re a team built for the end of the season. We get better as the season progresses. If we continue to work hard and do what we need to do, I think we have a good shot to go to state.”

In addition to the parity, Wyoming only loses senior Max Wiethe from the roster for 2013. “That was the best part about the year,” Crider said. “We put seven on varsity and at some point all seven contributed. We look for that next year as well.” In statistical terms, less was Moore for Wyoming. Junior Henry Moore had the lowest nine-hole average at 39.9 “Henry was definitely the consistent guy week to week,”

Crider said. “There was also Chris Betagole (41). He was right there on Henry’s heels all year long. The two of them competing helped both of them get better.” Behind the two juniors was freshman Sam Marty, the brother of Wyoming’s junior football quarterback Will Marty. While Will finds receivers, Sam Marty finds greens. “He actually medaled for us twice before he ever even attended class since the season started so early,” Crider said. “Sam’s a player. He even had a hole-in-one the day after the CHL championship playing with his dad.”

Marty averaged 42.42 during the season, followed by Max Wiethe at 44, Johnny Hughes at 44.8, Stephen Cholvat at 44.69 and Michael Montgomery at 46.3. That collection of Cowboys went on to win the Division II sectional at Sharon Woods Sept. 27, beating runner-up Madeira by five strokes. Henry Moore led with a 78; Stephen Cholvat delivered an 80. “We were expecting a dogfight to get out of sectional,” Crider said. Wyoming’s overall record was 25-2 in the regular season.

WYOMING — After finishing the Cincinnati Hills League dual match season undefeated, the Wyoming High School boys golf team went on to take the CHL championship Sept. 22 at Sharon Woods. Two sophomores led the Cowboys as Stephen Cholvat shot 79 and Johnny Hughes, 80. Right behind them were juniors Chris Betagole and Henry Moore at 82. “This is my first one as a coach,” coach Rod Crider said of the title. “We’ve been close a couple of times but never have been able to break through.” Prior to Crider, Wyoming last won the league in 2007. The previous two seasons, Indian Hill has been on top. “We thought going into the year that this was going to kind of a wide-open shootout,” Crider said. “Most of the teams lost pretty good players last year.

Obama makes case for 4 more years

In the first week of September, the 46th Democratic National Convention took place in Charlotte, N.C. Democrats presented a compelling case for President Obama’s re-election. Two speakers were especially effective telling us why President Obama deserves a second term: Michelle Obama and former President Bill Clinton. The First Lady spoke from the perspective of being at her husband’s side as he has grappled with the nation’s enormous challenges. She said “I have seen firsthand that being president doesn’t change who you are – no, it reveals who you are...I’ve seen how the issues that come across a president’s desk are always

the hard ones – the problems where no amount of data... will get you to the right answer ... the stakes are so high, and there Richard is no margin Schwab COMMUNITY PRESS for error. And as president, GUEST COLUMNIST you’re going to get all kinds of advice from all kinds of people. But at the end of the day, when it comes time to make that decision, as president, all you have to guide you are your values and your vision and the life experiences that make you who you are.” Bill Clinton was asked by Barack Obama to formally place

his name in nomination, but his presence served other, larger purposes. During Clinton’s administration, the U.S. enjoyed more peace and economic well being than at any time in its history. Bill Clinton was in Charlotte to embody the prosperous 1990s. The 42nd president argued the country is better off now than when the 44th president first took office. No one is better than Bill Clinton when it comes to speaking common sense and getting the truth out about the lies being told by Republicans. Clinton said, “I want to nominate a man who’s cool on the outside, but who burns for America on the inside ... I want a man who believes with no doubt

Mental Health Court win-win I am one of two judges who preside over Hamilton County Municipal Court’s Mental Health Court (MHC). Any judge, attorney or probation officer may refer a defendant charged with a misdemeanor to MHC at any time during the case: at pretrial, trial, sentencing, or even after the original judge has placed them on probation. Once someone is referred to MHC they are screened by the court psychiatric clinic to confirm that they have an eligible diagnosis. Next a public defender meets with the defendant to explain the program, and prosecutors also must agree to a case being placed into MHC. The program is optional, but if the defendant meets the criteria and wants to participate, he or she is assigned to one of the two MHC judges, pleads guilty to the charge, and the judge sentences the defendant to one year of intensive probation. The defendant meets the MHC team comprised of a specialized probation officer, the attorneys, the judge, and employees of Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health, an agency of care managers, counselors, doctors and nurses who provide “wrap around services” for these defendants, including referrals for drug and alcohol addiction, housing issues, or even help in organizing their days. The individualized programs offer classes ranging from behavior modification to art therapy. Each judge schedules her

individuals about twice a month for status reports. Before court, the team meets in the judge’s chamHeather bers to update Russell the judge on COMMUNITY PRESS the progress GUEST COLUMNIST or setbacks of each individual up for report that day. As the one in the black robe who has the power to put people in jail, I sometimes have the role of “the enforcer.” It is rare that anyone will go to jail while in the program, but they do have to be accountable to me. Often I get to be the one who offers praise and support for their efforts. This is a wonderful collaboration between the criminal justice system and the mental health system. For the year that these defendants are in our program we can get them stabilized in their mental and physical health and in their housing, and we can connect them to people and services that can help them maintain their stability. We are successful if we can keep our participants crime free for the year that they are in the program, and for one additional year beyond the program. Eighty-six percent of our program participants remain crime-free for the year in the program and for the year following successful termination from the program. This is a far

higher success rate than the national statistics, and more importantly, after defendants finish the year’s program, they stay engaged with their service providers. This is a win-win situation: citizens are happy that crime is down, the defendants feel better physically and emotionally, and these people who really don’t belong in jail do not take up valuable jail space. MHC is funded in part through the Hamilton County Mental Health Board. Heather Russell is a candidate for Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas judge on the Nov. 6 ballot.

When Chiquita Brands cited the lack of a bilingual workforce able to work easily with Chiquita’s substantial operations in Latin America, we realized we needed to get busy and take advantage of the resources that are already here.

that we can build a new American dream economy, driven by innovation and creativity, by education and yes, by cooperation ... In Tampa, the Republican argument against the president’s re-election was actually pretty simple ... It went something like this: ‘We left him a total mess. He hasn’t cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in’... No president, not me, not any of my predecessors ... could have fully repaired all the damage that he found in just four years.” Bill Clinton presented a report card. “Since 1961, for 52 years now, the Republicans have held the White House 28 years, the Democrats 24. In those 52 years, our economy has produced 66 million private-sector

jobs. So what’s the job score? Republicans: 24 million – Democrats: 42 million.” Since Mitt Romney has totally surrounded himself with advisors from the previous Republican administration, I will be voting for Barack Obama because I want a president who believes that, as Americans, we aren’t on our own, that we’re all in this together. I want a president who will move America forward, not back to the failed policies of George W. Bush.

CH@TROOM Sept. 26 question Do you think the Federal Reserve’s decision to buy $40 billion a month in mortgagebacked securities to cut borrowing costs for home buyers and other borrowers, and pledge to keep short-term rates near zero until at least mid-2015 will help the economy? Why or why not?

“Yes. “Anything, albeit it new and untested, is better than doing nothing in this ongoing challenging economy. "There is always the possibility it may be successful, be it for the short or long term. "Also, if it is truly designed to all help all rather than only those at the top echelon of the social strata, it would be more fair to all that may be eligible for same.” J. J. “The Fed's decisions to buy mortgaged-backed securities and to keep interest rates low for at least another three years will provide minimal help to the economy in the short run and will add greatly to our nation's financial woes in the long run. “With respect to the first policy, do people realize that the Fed is in effect printing money to buy those mortgages? This will just add to the already massive and unprecedented increase in the supply of money, with no commensurate increase in the need for it. “In the past, in other places and at other times, this practice has eventually led to inflation – sometimes even hyper-inflation – which can devastate the purchasing power of savers and investors, including many retirees. “The purchases drive the price of mortgage securities up, which forces the rates on mortgages down. Mortgage rates are already at rock bottom, so how is this going to entice more home sales? “Worse, the Fed has said they will keep buying those securities in whatever amount and for whatever time period they feel is warranted. This is a little like announcing an ‘open bar’ that will never close. So, while we might have fun for a few hours, we'll wake up with a bad hangover. “Keeping interest rates low also penalizes the saver and investor while it benefits the borrower. So, if you have been frugal and saved your money the Fed is going to artificially keep interest rates – your return – low, which benefits the person who has been

a spendthrift and a borrower by keeping his interest costs low. “This is indeed a strange new world that we live in.” T.H. “No, I do not think the Federal Reserve's decision to buy $40 billion a month in mortgage-backed securities is a good idea. It is another example of government intrusion where it has no business interfering. “All of us know of friends and neighbors who have lost their homes because they could not pay their mortgages. The solution is not to have the government step in and rescue the lenders of mortgages to people who cannot afford them. “The solution is to create a more friendly climate for businesses by eliminating many of the regulations imposed by the government on businesses, which have discouraged the hiring of US workers causing massive unemployment. “Businesses freed from excess regulations would be in a much better position to hire employees. If you don't believe it, call Cincinnati Bell for customer service some time. What state is 'Manila' in?” Bill B. “Absolutely not. Our government is wasting tax dollars, and the economy won't recover until the Fed stops printing money. “Honestly? GM & Chrysler didn't need ‘US’ to bail them out ... they would have made it through the existing court system. “All the printed money is going to the 1 percent folks, and NONE of them has changed a thing about how they run their firms because of the zillions 'WE' gave them. To give $40 million a month to Wall Street is outrageous!” K.P.

The artists focus on figurative work, but with different styles and personalities: » Trelan Jones, a freelance professional mixed media and collage artist, is a 2004 graduate of The Savannah College of Art and Design. The Mount Washington resident teaches children and adults, and is working on her masters degree in art education from the University of Cincinnati DAAP program. She creates large-scale collages and donates her work and time to benefit single mothers, rape victims and shelter dogs. She received the Wyoming Art Show People’s Choice Award in 2011 and the Mixed Media Award in 2012. » Melanie MacArthur draws portraits of people and pets from photos, using colored pencils and oils. She holds a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from the Ohio State University. » Jamie Morath won the Loveland Valentine Limited Edition Valentine Card design in 2008, setting her art career in motion. She draws her inspiration from everyday life with her four sons, husband and pets. “I believe that everyone is an artist,” she said. “Art is everywhere. “Life is the perfect canvas, an endless inspiration.” » Dawna Boehmer’s paintings glimpse the humorous, but reveal the nature of human social interaction. The characters in her paintings exude sensual charm through body language and facial expressions, catching pivotal moments when people let down their guard. “When in a crowd, I find myself searching for faces for my next painting,” Boehmer said. “This provides the opportunity to meet interesting people that I would not otherwise have a chance to meet.” Boehmer uses vivid colors with words as hints to the narrative.

Pick a peck of peppers to pickle

One of these days I’m going to write a cookbook including “Hall of Fame” recipes from my column. When I think of all the recipes shared across our community of readers and the interest generated by them, I know that food shared with family and friends is not only nurturing but makes memories and tradiRita tions. Heikenfeld That’s why RITA’S KITCHEN every year I get requests for Nell Wilson’s pickled peppers. Nell, a Mason reader, is the mother of our garden guru, Ron Wilson, and her pickled peppers are the best. I’ve adapted the recipe over the years, but the original premise comes from Nell. Peppers are in season so by making your own, you are saving lots of money plus you know exactly what’s in them.

Nell Wilson’s famous hot pickled peppers I make this with a mixture of mostly hot peppers. I usually don’t add 2 cups sugar; if I use any at all, I’ll start out with half a cup, taste the brine and go from there. You’ll get

RITA MACCHEAN’S MEATBALLS Rita, a Madeira reader, shared her recipe a while back and I’ve gotten a few requests again. It’s on my blog.

Rita shares her recipe for Nell Wilson’s famous hot pickled peppers. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD. enough brine for 5-6 pints or about 3 quarts peppers. Peppers: 2 pounds or so, prepared as directed below

Brine: Bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer for 5 minutes. 6 cups clear or cider vinegar, 5 percent acidity 2 cups water

Optional ingredients: Sugar to taste: up to 2 cups Salt: up to 2 tablespoons, if you want 1 garlic clove for each jar 1 bay leaf for each jar 1 grape leaf for each jar (this supposed to make them extra crunchy)

Fall fever plant sale at Glenwood Gardens Glenwood Gardens is offering a wide variety of native plants, just in time for autumn planting. The Fall Fever Plant Sale is noon to 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5; 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 7. Glenwood Gardens landscape staff will help in choosing the right native plants from the more than 350 in its inventory, including a variety of maples, birch, boxwood, dogwood, coneflower, hydrangea and much more. Fall is considered a good season to add plants because it gives them time to acclimate without the threat of hot or dry weather. The Fall Fever Plant Sale is open to the public. Glenwood Gardens is at 10623 Springfield Pike. A valid Hamilton County

Bring brine to a boil. Let simmer 5 minutes or so. Prepare peppers: Use rubber gloves. Leave peppers whole with a slit down the center if you like, or slice. Place peppers in hot jars, packing tightly. Pour simmering brine over, covering peppers. Add optional ingredients. Wipe rims with clean wet cloth. Put lids and seals on. Professionally, I’ll tell you to process pints 10 minutes or quarts 15 minutes in a boiling water bath after sealing. That is the recommended safe method for canning. (Check out my blog for directions.) I don’t process mine, but I steril-

ize the jars and lids, and keep them in boiling water until they’re filled. I have never had a problem, but again, the recommended way to preserve these is in a boiling water bath. Jars will seal on their own – you’ll hear little “pings” as the seal completes. Any that don’t seal, just put in refrigerator. Chill in refrigerator before serving. Tip from Rita’s kitchen • The membrane that the seeds are attached to is the hottest part of the pepper. • The lids are a twoparter: a flat seal and a ring. The rings are reusable, but the seals are not. • See Rita make these: video for pickling peppers on www.abouteating.com. • Peppers are good for your eyes and heart, among other things.

Spicy bistro oyster crackers for soups

With autumn comes chilly days and the aroma of a pot of soup cooking is so comforting. Take soup to a whole new level with

these tasty crackers. I can eat these as a snack! You can add more garlic powder, oregano and chili powder. Crush these for an unusual topping for mac and cheese, etc.

1 24 oz. box oyster crackers ¾ cup canola or olive oil 1 envelope Taco seasoning ½ teaspoon each garlic powder, Italian seasoning or oregano, chili powder

Preheat oven to 350. Put crackers in big bowl. Whisk oil and seasonings together. Taste and add more seasoning if you like. Sometimes I’ll add more garlic powder. Pour over crackers and toss to mix well. Pour onto cookie sheets in single layers. Bake 15-20 minutes, stirring once, until golden brown. Cool and store, covered, at room temperature.

Bilog to feature open mic poetry, music night Bilog Coffee Tea Gelato & Bistro, a fast becoming popular coffeehouse and eatery at 1212 Springfield Pike in Wyoming, will now feature a moderated open mic poetry and music night on the first Thursday of each month from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The series will begin Thursday, Oct. 4. Musicians and poets of all ages and ability levels are welcome to perform. The open mic time will be introduced and moderated by local poet and Wyoming resident Patrick Kerin. He approached Bilog owner and proprietor Beth Piocos this past spring about poetry readings at Bilog. “I was talking to Beth one night and asked if she had thought about having poetry readings there,” Kerin said. “I discovered that

she was looking for someone to take the lead on organizing and promoting a moderated open mic night for poetry and music. Just a couple of weeks earlier I had attended the first ever poetry open mic at the Public Library downtown. They had a huge turnout, ranging from grade school

children to elderly adults. It was a great night, and many I spoke with expressed a desire for more open mic events in Cincinnati. Bilog seemed like a great fit.” Bilog is open Tuesday to Saturday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Howard and Jean Constable celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary on Sept. 30, 2012. They are both graduates of Norwood High School. In 1942, after the WWII bombing of Pearl Harbor, Howard enlisted in the Navy. During a leave, he and Jean "tied the knot". After the war was over, they settled in Norwood, Ohio for 10 years, Wyoming, Ohio for 31 years, and Glendale, Ohio for the past 26 years. Howard worked for General Electric for 38 years and served on the Wyoming City Council for 16 years. Jean devoted her time to being a stay-at-home mother and homemaker. They raised 5 children (Linda, Dan, Beth, Mark, and Amy) and have 16 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren (plus 3 on the way!). We, their children, feel extremely fortunate to be celebrating this very special time with them. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, Mom and Dad!

Trick or treat at Spooky Pooch By Kelly McBride kmcbride@communitypress.com

Have you had fun following the Reds this year? We here at The Enquirer and Cincinnati.com hope you’ve had as much fun watching the Reds this season as we have.

Marla Varmusa adopted her first pup several years ago through the SPCA. She found the dog at Glendale’s Dog Days, and it piqued her interest in animal rescue. Those contacts, and her involvement with Harry Whiting Brown Community Center, helped her organize The Spooky Pooch, a dog-centered fest with a Halloween theme. The free event takes place from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13, at HWB Community Center, 205 E. Sharon Road, near the Village Square. Dogs can come in costume for a parade and con-

The Spooky Pooch includes a parade and costume contest. THANKS TO AMANDA EVANS

test, as well as other activities and demonstrations: creative grooming exhibition, lure course, provided by the Cincinnati Zoo Cat

Ambassador Program, agility course featuring weave poles, tunnels and jumps, and dog demonstrations by police and search and rescue teams, as well as a presentation on proper care for pets. The parade begins at 2 p.m. and judging takes place between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. A dog dress-up and parade, called The Spookiest Pooch, will include prizes for first through third place in a People’s Choice format. The contest costs $5 to enter. Online registration, at www.spookypooch.com, includes a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to Woodhouse Day Spa.
