‘Wheel’ leaves Wyoming man’s head spinning By Kelly McBride Reddy kreddy@communitypress.com

A Wyoming man didn’t have to spin to have the Wheel of Fortune pay off. Patrick Coughlin, who has had a Visa with a Sony Card logo since 1995, was checking his account balance in January. “I hit the ‘did you win today’ button,” Coughlin said. “It said ‘yes, you did.’” Coughlin said he was then told he’d get a phone call about his

prize, but he was skeptical. “Then, I got the call and received paperwork to fill out,” he said. “I got a check signed in Japanese from Sony,” Coughlin said. “I could tell it was real, but the bank wasn’t sure, so I had to wait another three weeks.” It was worth the wait. Coughlin received $50,000 and a trip to New York City, from which he returned a couple of weeks ago. Harry Friedman, executive producer of Wheel of Fortune, said the

Wheel Watcher Cub is “a way of rewarding our viewers for watching.” More than $2 million has been awarded through the club. “In this economy, when someone wins $50,000, that’s a lot of money,” Friedman said. “People are getting more practical about what’s a life-changing amount of money.” So, what did Coughlin do with his winnings? “I paid off my minivan,” he said. “And I’m doing work on my house.”

Evendale council OKs new GE signs By Amanda Hopkins

General Electric Aviation is planning a new gateway sign for its Neumann Way entrance. Evendale council recently approved the proposed sign variances for the two wall signs and monument signs that will greet employees and visitors to the Learning Center and executive offices at General Electric. The proposed monument sign would be 22 feet tall and would replace the current sign, which is 25 feet tall. The monument sign is in compliance with the current required setback from the right-ofway. The wall signs will be six feet in height. Nicole DiNovo of Human Nature, one of the companies that are designing the gateway, said the plans for the gateway will

push back the parking spaces and will make the entrance a little more green with landscaping. The purpose of the signs are to increase visibility from the highway and the wall signs will be built on four foot mounds. General Electric was previously denied by the Building Commis-

sion because they had proposed more than one sign and both were in excess of the size and height allowed by the village of Evendale. The project is estimated at $600,000. The gateway sign project will be completed by Dec. 23.

Project moves to fast(er) track

By Kelly McBride Reddy kreddy@communitypress.com

Sharonville City Council has approved $3 million in bonds to pay for site work needed for the Sharonville Convention Center. The funds will cover preliminary tasks such as demolition, grading and blacktop work. Previously, the city planned to use bonds that Hamilton County will release in November, and officials requested bids for contractors to perform the work. When bids came in quickly, and at a lower cost than expected, the city wanted to be able to sign a contract. That required funds. “Council has given us an additional six weeks,” Mayor Virgil Lovitt said of the 5-2 vote. Councilmen Greg Pugh and Rob Tankersley voted no. “Bids are competitive, and we’re going to get more for our money,” Lovitt said. Will Greiner, who runs the convention center, said he’s glad the work will begin sooner. “I have trust in the county that they’ll come through with their promise,” he said. “The schedule of preliminary work is very important.” Hamilton County Commissioner David Pepper attended a work session before the council meeting Sept. 29, and reassured council that the bonds will be sold by year’s end. That will allow the city to repay the short-term loan. Also during the meeting, council voted to support the high-speed rail proposal that would run from Columbus to Cincinnati. Sharonville has applied for funding to build a station in the city. “High speed rail has a lot of advantages,” Lovitt said. “It’s extremely exciting to know that if high speed passenger rail gets built, they will have a station in Sharonville.”

Powel Crosley Jr. YMCA plans new aquatic center By Heidi Fallon hfallon@communitypress.com

Powel Crosley Jr. YMCA members will be able to take the plunge in the Winton Road facility’s newest addition next spring. The scheduled Oct. 5 groundbreaking for the new outdoor aquatic complex will launch what is touted as one of the region’s most comprehensive and largest year-round aquatic centers for children, adults, seniors and competitive swimmers. Scheduled to open in May of 2010,

the new complex will nearly double the size of the YMCA’s main outdoor pool. Making a more competitive pool for Y swim teams, the project will also include a baby pool with interactive features such as geysers and a palm tree that sprays water. The area will have a new deck and fencing as well as new lighting for evening swim meets. In addition to the pools, two adjoining tennis courts will be resurfaced and receive new lighting. Powel Crosley Jr. YMCA’s new outdoor swimming pool will measure 50 meters by 25 yards with recreational

diving boards on its deepest end. It’s being designed with a zero-entry wading entrance for accessibility. “We’re really excited for this new complex,” said Mike Leonard, Powel Crosley Jr. YMCA director of competitive swimming. “Our 45-year-old Tigersharks swim team has consistently ranked among the top 20 YMCA teams nationwide. “The new pool will allow us to accommodate more swimmers training at a higher level on our team, but it will also give us more opportunities to serve our community.”

Sharonville City Council will have new faces after the November election, as two

councilmen chose not to run for re-election, and two residents stepped into candidacy. The seat of treasurer is a contested race between two candidates.

Each council member and treasurer candidate reflected on his or her motives for seeking public office, as well as any goals or issues facing the city.

Kevin Hardman President of council

“I am deeply humbled by the continued trust my friends and neighbors have placed in me over the past decade. It is an honor to serve them on Sharonville City Council. “When I first ran in 1999, I pledged to work with our city leaders and employees to rejuvenate our city’s major corridors, strengthen our city’s safety services, and maintain the excellence of all our other city departments. Much progress has been made in the last 10 years in these areas and much more is still to be accomplished. “Working alongside your other elected officials and city employees, I see the following as goals for my next term: supporting the expansion of the Sharonville Convention Center and the reimaging of Chester Road; encouraging the businesses of the city’s historic Downtown Loop; providing the resources necessary for our public works’ employees to outperform our neighboring communities in keeping our streets clean and clear; giv-

It’s good to know they’re in a

ing our police, fire and health departments the tools necessary to insure a safe community for all our businesses and residents, and furnishing ample recreational opportunities. I intend to see us achieve these goals and to do so without any additional monetary burdens on our city taxpayers.”

Ed Cunningham Ward 1

“Ward 1 is in need of better representation. It’s time to bring new ideas with a higher energy level to local government,” he said. Cunningham focuses that energy on devoting his time and leadership to a number of local organizations that advocate for the economic and social vitality of the city. “In addition to my Sharonville Youth Organization presidency, I am one of the founding members of the Sharonville Downtown Business Group, an organization that strives to give downtown businesses input on activities and initiatives in the downtown area. “I am also a member of the Sharonville Business Advocacy Committee, a group that focuses on business retention by facilitating communication between city government and Sharonville businesses. “I am dedicated to bring-

Other candidates

The Tri-County Press requested information on separate occasions, in person and twice through e-mail, from the city council candidates. Janey Kattelman, who is running for Council in Ward 1, did not provide information for this article. One candidate for treasurer, Timothy Clements, did not respond to two phone calls requesting information. ing my experience and passion for the city of Sharonville to the residents of Ward 1. “I want to continue working with the youth of Sharonville by teaching good sportsmanship and building character. And I also want to continue to be a strong business advocate so that more tax dollars can work for Sharonville residents.”

Kerry Rabe Ward 3

“As a seven-term member of council, insuring great city services over these 13plus years has been my number one goal and the reason why I am here. “Sharonville residents have come to expect nothing short of excellence when it comes to the services the city provides. Our police and fire departments are second to none. As a conservative I have enjoyed keeping a tight fist with our taxpayers’ monies, too often those entrusted with these monies spend like there is no tomorrow. “What I have enjoyed the most by far has been the fact that I have been a voice for my constituents with their concerns and suggestions.”

Rob Tankersley Ward 4

Glendale Place Care Center specializes in providing a unique blend of quality care and lifeenriching services that allows each of our residents to live in comfort and dignity. Our multidisciplinary team is experienced, caring and compassionate. • State of the art rehabilitation services - physical occupational, speech, and respiratory therapists • 24-hour skilled nursing care • Specialized services for the memory-impaired in Shelter Pointe, our self-contained unit for all stages of dementia • Complete medical care – including cardiac, IV therapy, pain control and nutritional management • Medicare and Medicaid certified

Glendale Place Care Center offers outstanding skilled nursing and long term care services tailored to meet the needs of each individual resident, addressing care requirements and establishing realistic goals designed to maximize independence and functioning.

“I was appointed to this position in February 2005. I have been blessed and pleased to serve the wonderful people in Sharonville. I have been involved in different activities through the years of not only growing up here, but getting married and raising our three children, and have volunteering for my children’s activities. “I was a member of the Sharonville Police Department and now City Council. I have enjoyed helping the residents in the Ward 4 area along with the other residents of Sharonville with some issues. “To some people a fire hydrant or a sidewalk isn't a big deal. Well, To the residents that contacted me about these issues it was a big deal. These issues were corrected and repaired. “I am a blue collar worker,And I want to be the voice for the fine people of Sharonville. I am no different than anyone else with the economy being like it is, things are being watched a lot closer. I am just one person out of seven here doing the best I can and hope to be making the best decisions for the residents of Sharonville.”

“I want to serve the community and promote community events. That’s why I’m running again. “My goals are to get the community more involved.”

Greg Pugh At large

“I will continue to stay true to my belief in core gov-

ernment responsibilities; • “fiscally conservative stewardship of the resources our residents entrust to the city, • “fully staffed and well equipped/ trained police and fire departments, • “fully equipped, responsive and capable Public Works Department, and • “infrastructure (such as sewer, roadway and sidewalks). “The current economy has been tough for all of us. As a small business owner in Sharonville I have made some hard decisions to survive, and I have listened to stories my clients and fellow business owners have shared regarding choices they have made in order to make ends meet. I can assure you that I will always consider the well-being of Sharonville residents first when appropriating hard earned resources. The city’s department managers are working hard to stretch dollars and provide consistent, quality services which we have all come to depend on, and each employee is doing his/her part to assist in these goals. I look forward to my continuing opportunity to work with these professionals on your behalf.”

Paul Schmidt At large

“As a resident of Sharonville for more than 30 years, I have been active in community programs for many years: church, school, youth sports, and the city of Sharonville. “Currently I serve as the soccer referee coordinator, trainer, and certifier for our SYO and SAY programs. I have been a homebound instructor for Princeton High School for more than 15 years. I have been a member of the Sharonville Planning Commission for several years. My wife and I are members of Saint Michael Parish. “Earlier this year I retired as site manager for a large manufacturing facility. “I believe that my community efforts combined with my business/manufacturing experiences will provide a strong, experienced background for serving the city of Sharonville and its citizens. “My priorities are to attract and retain jobs, maximize the value of tax dollars, and communicate with our citizens.”

Al Ledbetter treasurer

“I am currently the treasurer for the City of Sharonville. “I have been in public service for approximately 36 years, with 28 years spent in a leadership role as a public administrator. Those 28 years provided me with the knowledge and experience that enables me to be a resource to the city and the other elected officials. I’ve developed and administered budgets from less than $1 million to $44 million. As an administrator I gained a working knowledge of the governmental bidding process, contract administration and state audits. “In turn, my experience as a public administrator laid a solid foundation and helped to make for a seamless transition to the city treasurer’s role. “One of the primary functions of the treasurer is to

Spartans don’t have answers for Alter By Tony Meale

tmeale@communitypress.com

This was a riddle the Spartans couldn’t solve. Facing Alter, the topranked Division-IV team in Ohio, the Roger Bacon High School football team was blanked 27-0 at home Oct. 16. It was Roger Bacon’s seventh straight defeat. The Spartans (1-7, 0-5) mustered just 62 yards of total offense and allowed 356, including 288 yards on the ground; all four Alter touchdowns were of the rushing variety. Senior tailback Jorian Hudson led Bacon with five rushes for 13 yards, while quarterback Josh Ungerbuehler was 3-of-12 passing for 28 yards. Roger Bacon started the season with a 34-32 win over Mount Healthy Aug. 28, but the Spartans have since gone cold, losing seven games by an average of 13.4 points per game. “The key (to the Mount Healthy game) was our ability to make big plays on defense; we made a lot of big plays that kept us in the game,” head coach Kevin

Huxel said. “But since then, I think it’s been our inability to make big plays when we need them.” The Spartans’ offense has been in hibernation since scoring a combined 60 points in the first two games of the year. Roger Bacon has scored just one touchdown in its last four games combined and has averaged just three points per game over that stretch. “We knew our O-Line would be small, and I think bigger teams just wear us out in the second half,” Huxel said. He may be right. Roger Bacon has entered halftime tied or ahead in four of its eight games this season, but has won only once. Still, the Spartans kept it close in most of their games. They have two three-point losses on the year – 31-28 to Campbell County Sept. 4, and 6-3 at Fenwick Sept. 25. They have lost by more than 13 points just twice. It is of little comfort to

Huxel. “Some games were close, but we still lost,” he said. “So there are no moral victories there.” Nevertheless, Huxel has been impressed with both of his UC recruits, seniors Solomon Tentman (DE/LB) and Jorian Hudson (WR). “They’ve both had real solid years,” he said. “And teams have been doubleteaming Jorian on offense to take him out of the game.” Hudson, however, is averaging 12.0 yards per catch and leads the GCLCentral in receiving yards, with 407. Tentman, meanwhile, is second in the league in sacks, with 3.5 Huxel is also happy with seniors Drake Fletcher (LB) and Ed Spaeth (DT). “He’s a small defensive tackle,” Huxel said of Spaeth. “But he gives everything he has on every play.” Roger Bacon plays at Chaminade Julienne (7-1, 4-1) Oct. 23 before closing the season at home against Purcell Marian (1-7, 0-6) Oct. 30. A GCL -Central title and a winning season are no longer possible for Roger Bacon, but Huxel’s players don’t plan on taking their final games lightly. “We want to show that we’re better than our record,” Huxel said. “I’m still pleased with the effort from everyone. We haven’t quit, and we’re not going to quit. We’ll keep fighting. I still enjoy working with these guys every day.”

Roger Bacon senior Jorian Hudson fights for yardage against Alter.

Moeller (8-0, 2-0) raced out to a 28-0 lead to remain perfect on the season. Senior quarterback Andrew Hendrix was 19-of31 passing for 195 yards and a touchdown; he also rushed for two scores. Junior tailback Tucker Skove led Moeller with 12 carries for 72 yards, while senior Jeff Aubin had 11 for 50. The Moeller defense, meanwhile, was dominant.

TONY MEALE/STAFF

Roger Bacon High School senior quarterback Josh Ungerbuehler fights for yardage against Alter at home on Oct. 16. The Spartans lost 27-0. The Crusaders recorded seven sacks and two fumbles, and Dylan Ruter scored on a 25-yard interception return. The Lancers ran 32 times for just 75 yards – an average of 2.3 yards per carry – and had just six rushing yards at halftime. Moeller closes the regular season with two Saturday games – at Lakewood St. Edward on Oct. 24 and against St. Xavier (6-1, 20) at Nippert Stadium on Halloween night. At stake against St. X is the GCL South title and the No. 1 seed in the playoffs. Moeller entered Week Seven at No. 2 in the Harbin Ratings behind the Bombers.

Wyoming 54, Finneytown 0

The Cowboys improved to 8-0 (5-0), while the

Wildcats fell to 0-8 (0-5). Wyoming raced to a 480 halftime lead largely on the arm of junior quarterback Kyle Seyfried, who was 11-of-15 passing for 299 yards and five touchdowns before the break. Wide receiver Harry Meisner was untouchable, hauling in four catches for 193 yards – an average of 48.3 yards per reception – and three touchdowns. Running back Isaiah Nearor ran 17 times for 105 yards and a touchdown; he also scored on a 90-yard punt return. Wyoming, ranked No. 3 in the city in Divisions II-IV, hosts Taylor Oct. 23 before finishing the regular season against Indian Hill (5-3, 50) Oct. 30 in a game that will likely determine the Cincinnati Hills League champion. The game is at Wyoming.

CHCA 8, North Hardin 7

The Eagles won the game without scoring a touchdown. Senior kicker Joe Reifenberg kicked two field goals – including one as time expired – and the defense delivered a safety to overcome a 7-0 deficit. CHCA hosts Clark Montessori (4-4, 1-3) Oct. 23 before closing the regular season at Cincinnati Country Day (6-2, 2-2) Oct. 30.

Lakota West 28, Princeton 0

The Vikings struggled to get anything going offensively and were shut out for the first time since a 20-0 loss against Brookhaven in 2004. Princeton (2-3, 4-4) finishes the season with home games against Hamilton (26, 1-4) and Middletown (80, 5-0).

Wyoming tennis enjoys strong season By Mark Chalifoux mchalifoux@communitypress.com

The Wyoming tennis team finished a stellar season by making the elite eight in the state team tournament and by qualifying a doubles team to the state tournament for the first time in more than six years. “It was an unexpectedly good season,” head coach Rodney Miller said.. “We only had four seniors on a roster of 12 and only one senior in the primary lineup. It was surprising for a team this young to be so productive.” Miller said the key to the team’s success was the strong play of several newcomers to the team. Freshmen Ashley Berg played No. 1 singles for the Cowboys and freshman Madison Bourbon played No. 2 singles for Wyoming. “They were both relatively productive for freshmen playing as the highest

Wyoming High School freshman Ashley Berg gets ready to return the ball. level,” Miller said. “They were both around .500, which isn’t bad for freshmen playing in the top slots.”

Miller said that both are tournament players and their prior experience helped prepare them to play big roles on the team this year.

ROD APFELBECK/CONTRIBUTOR

Meredith Hennessy, another freshman, played No. 1 doubles with his sister, senior Olivia. Sarah and Abby Gibbons, twin sisters,

played No. 2 doubles for Wyoming. “They were very good and had some important wins, especially in our quest to get to the state team tournament,” Miller said. The team’s No. 3 singles player was sophomore Tess Thorsen. “She had an amazing record and was a big key to our success overall,” Miller said. “She was 18-2 and always gave us one point so we just had to find two other matches to win. That made this a very, very strong team.” Miller is also very optimistic about the team’s future, especially with so many underclassmen in the top seven spots for the Cowboys. “Girls tennis at Wyoming should be very, very good for the next four-to-five years. We have some good talent in the middle school program and that will only strengthen the base we

have. It will be very exciting,” he said. One of the high points of the season for Wyoming was when Ashley Berg and Tess Thorsen qualified for the state tournament as a doubles team, the first time Wyoming has sent anyone to the state tournament in at least six years. “They are friends on the court and off the court and seem to communicate well,” Miller said. “They are both tournament-level players and got a crash course in playing doubles from our assistant coach, Chris Hemingway, and that really helped.” Miller said he will be asking the girls to take on a lot of work in the offseason to make the 2010 season even more successful. “With the success they had this year, I think it encourages them to work harder so they can be even more successful next year and in the future,” he said.

Public library system ‘overdue’ for changes

Now the Public Library comes hat in hand asking for even more tax money despite being the bestfunded library system in the State of Ohio. But the facts are clear: Overspending for guest speakers, free book giveaways, billboards and media campaigns (all timed for the tax levy vote) show a disregard of our tax dollars. In addition, they have failed to look for additional revenue streams, which we expect prudent and responsible managers of public tax dollars to do. They have made draconian staff and salary reductions, yet waste funds on meaningless and ineffective programs. It is easy to urge others to make cuts and improve their financial standing and then not make suggestions. Here are just a few items that generate revenue or reduce costs. This list was shared in much more

detail with the library staff and board, yet sadly rejected since it might make too much sense. 1. Using 2008 figures the library loaned Tom over 15.6 milBrinkman Jr. lion items. 45 percent or Community approximately Press guest 6.9 million were columnist audiovisual and digital. A simple one-dollar charge per item would raise $6.9 million. Sure there may be a drop off of circulation, but with video rental stores charging between $4 and $ 5, it is still a bargain. 2. The 40-branch network, not counting the Main Library, circulates 10.9 million items with the average of 272,000 each. Yet nine branches circulate one third or less

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR School board races important

Does it matter who is elected in the Nov. 3 school board election? Absolutely! These individuals will make decisions affecting the quality of life in our communities, the education of our children and grandchildren and the spending of our tax dollars. School board members set the direction for public education for our state and nation. Serving on a school board is a tremendous responsibility. By law, school board members are charged with providing educational opportunities for your community’s youth. School board members should conscientiously work in the best interests of all students and all citizens. That’s why voters in every community should take the time to educate themselves about the candidates and vote for the candidates who are right for the job. If you want to have a say in who will make the decisions affecting your local schools, your children and the spending of your tax dollars, then learn about the issues and cast your vote for the responsible, qualified person who you believe can do the best job serving on your local board of education. Your community deserves the best. Our students deserve nothing less. Vote Nov. 3. Tawana Lynn Keels President, Ohio School Boards Association Member, Princeton City and Great Oaks Institute of Technology and Career Development Blue Teal Drive Springdale

Emerson shows commitment

Julie Matheny, the mayor’s daughter, states her opponent was irresponsible enough to miss a deadline or simply didn’t feel it important enough to respond, in reference to posting campaign material on-line. Mrs. Matheny in another piece, delivered by the mayor himself, said she has attended all council and neighborhood watch meetings. Friends attending the watch meetings questioned her appearance, since she had never attended before campaigning. Last week alone Mrs. Emerson delivered a meal to a local family whose father is in the hospital awaiting a liver transplant. She has taken a weekly group of seniors to lunch because they need help with transportation. She and her husband cut down two dead trees for an unemployed neighbor, cited by the city. She would never mention this to anyone because she doesn’t do it to get votes; she does it because it’s the right thing to do. It’s her way, always has been and always will be. Mrs. Matheny should get to know someone before she attacks their character or questions their judgment. I sure am glad I am getting the opportunity to see what kind of person I get to choose to represent me and my values on city council. Craig DePeel Dimmick Avenue Springdale

than that. Serious consideration must be give to closing these underutilized branches. Every one of these branches is within two miles of another branch. 3. Of the branches, the library owns 30; three have a rent of $1 or less but seven pay full rent. It would seem logical to stop paying rent. I do not know which rental facilities also have low circulation and are close to other libraries and are on the bus line and have a separate children’s section and special magazines, etc. That is not my job. We are just pointing out that there is a basis to make hard choices and they must be made. 4. Currently one can run up fines to $9.99 without loss of privileges. Dropping this tolerance to $4.99 and thus forcing the repayment of outstanding fines could

result in $374,000 to $721,000. 5. There are 206,000 cardholders in Hamilton County and 29,000 out of county cardholders. The library lists a $25 charge to out of county cardholders, yet the library has not collected this fee for years. With Hamilton County taxpayers now paying a new tax, shouldn’t out of county users pay something? 6. Some have advocated charging the 206,000 cardholders a dollar a year. After all, the Hamilton County parks charge a fee even after we are taxed. How about charging a high fee like $ 20 for a special preference card that gives those card holders a first shot at getting new titles and access to on line resources? Friends of the Library members are getting special treatment, so this is nothing new. 7. Library employees are paid every two weeks. Many state

Issue 1 says thanks to veterans Since WWI, Ohio has given veterans bonuses as a small token of thanks for sacrifices they’ve made for our country. This Nov. 3, Ohioans will have the chance once again to show their gratitude by voting for Issue 1, awarding a cash bonus to Ohio veterans of the wars in the Persian Gulf, Iraq and Afghanistan. I carried this resolution in the Ohio House earlier this year. It passed without opposition in both the House and Senate. Our citizens first approved such a measure in 1921 for veterans of World War I. Since then we’ve enacted bonuses for World War II veterans, Korean War veterans and veterans of the Vietnam War. Generally, the 2009 Veterans Bonus pays up to $1,000 for service in theater and $500 for other active service during the wars. Medically disabled service members may receive a one-time pay-

ment of $1,000. The families of soldiers who do not return will receive a $5,000 death benefit. Each previous Veterans Bonus was Connie financed with Pillich low interest bonds, and Issue Community 1 is the same. Press guest Issuing bonds columnist makes sound budget sense because these bonds attract investors with tax-free income and Ohio benefits from the low interest rate. In other words, this is cheap money. The annual cost amounts to less than one percent of our debt service. It will be a part of our state budget, and our budget will be balanced. Moreover, this tried and true financing works.

PRESS

Ohio voters have consistently and overwhelmingly approved these measures. This small bonus will go far in expressing our gratitude to Ohio’s veterans for all they have done for us. They leave their homes, their families, and their lives, and they go off to war on our behalf. They report as ordered, sleep in the sand, fight in the heat, and face daily danger while we live in air conditioning, shop at well-stocked markets, and retire to our own beds at night. And after 15 or 18 months at war, our GIs come home to find their old lives disjointed at best. The least we can do is give them a little boost to ease the transition back to civilian life. I urge you to support Issue 1. State Rep. Connie Pillich represents Ohio’s 28th District. She lives in Montgomery.

CH@TROOM Oct. 14 questions

Do you think the efforts to expand Sharonville’s convention center are worth the expense? Why or why not? No responses. Should the federal government’s incentive program for new home buyers be extended? Why or why not? “I would like the see the current home buyer incentive package extended into 2010. I would like to see two changes however. Up the tax credit to $15,000 and make it for any home buyer (not just first time). This is how it was originally written. I would also like the see the Cash for Clunkers program revived. It is time to assist the common man instead of bailing out incompetent banks and auto companies. Go Figure!” T.D.T. “I think so. It could revitalize our economy by moving the inventory of unsold homes. It is a boost to the construction industry and will put more unemployed builders back to work. I have a friend who is a plasterer by trade and has only had four new homes

to work on compared to the 25 or 30 he normally does in a year.” Duke “Before we start random programs to help ‘select’ persons buy a new home or stay in their home, we need to take a step back and look at what incentives would really start the economy moving. There are not enough people with jobs; therefore not enough homes can be purchased to make a substantial impact on the economy. Maybe we should look at keeping jobs in the U.S. and stop sending jobs to Mexico, Guatamala, Honduras, China, etc. ... keeping jobs here would spike the economy and we would not need to spend money to make money!” Florence “I feel that it should be extended with additional emphasis on qualifications.

Was buying 1,000 copies of the last “Harry Potter” necessary? That is 25 copies a branch. Once again, the library is not Barnes & Noble.

Overbuying of DVDs in order to have the latest hot release is wrong; they are not Blockbuster and should not even try to complete. The library has not been a good steward of our tax dollars.

Montgomery resident brings sled hockey to local players By Amanda Hopkins ahopkins@communitypress.com

After reading in a magazine about sled hockey, Renee Loftspring got the idea to bring the sport to Cincinnati. The Montgomery resident is a physical therapist and had the connections to be able to reach interested participants for sled hockey, which is adaptive ice hockey for children and adults that have a physical condition that could prevent them from ice skating standing up. “I thought this would be really neat, it would be a perfect match,” Loftspring said. The players have helmets, elbow, shoulder and shin pads and sticks which have tiny ice picks on one end to help propel them on their sleds and the other end set up for puck handling. Loftspring said the 12 participants in sled hockey have varying degrees of disability, half of them suffering from spina bifida, a birth defect that affects the spinal cord. Loftspring, whose son plays stand-up hockey, also became involved with USA Hockey, the governning body for hockey teams, and is the representative for the disabled people involved in other forms of adaptive ice hockey in four states. The team was organized in October 2008, using its first season as a learning experience for the players

For more information … on how to participate, donate or volunteer with the sled hockey team at Sports Plus in Evendale, contact Renee Loftspring at sledhockey@zoomtown.com You can learn more about sled hockey at www. cincinnatiicebreakers.ning.com and coaches. Sycamore High School hockey coach Rob Wocks coaches the 12 participants in sled hockey every week at Sports Plus in Evendale. He said his players from the high school often come in to help with the sled hockey, assisting the players with their sleds and other aspects of the game. Now in their second season, Loftspring said that the Cincinnati Icebreakers received a $10,000 grant from the National Hockey League Players Association and have been able to purchase 10 new sleds and sticks. “Our goal is that our program grows because we have enough to suit up 19 players,” Loftspring said. The team plans to travel this year to compete against teams from Columbus and Cleveland and teams based in Indiana, Michigan and Pennsylania.

Life

We can close the door to what we want

ing for someone who genuinely “resonates” with us – who will understand us and recognize how we may feel in the circumstances of life. We are not asking that someone always agree with us, but that there is a genuine connection of their person with “my” person. What a satisfaction it is when someone stands in my shoes for a moment. That indicates a door is open. We tend not to shut as many doors when we remember and sense that though we are unique, there is still a solidarity within our human nature. Perhaps I’ve quoted her words too often, but I really feel Lily Tomlin expressed a great truth when she said, “We’re all in this together, by ourselves!” Our children are not children any longer; a customer is profit, a salesperson is overhead; parishioners are fellow-seekers, and clergy are not gods with thunderbolts; and a person seeking love and understanding, well, that’s all of us.

parents who yearn for more time with their adult children yet engender guilt trips when Father Lou t h e n Guntzelman c o m e ; Perspectives cw l e hr g yo encourage church attendance, yet constantly preach fear and treat attendees as children. If we are door-closers, how do we counter our tendency to be one? Of course, the first step is to “know yourself” – as the early Greeks were wise enough to realize. We must honestly analyze our own behavior and realistically examine our words, actions and attitudes. Are we aware of our choice of words or implied impressions, and the result they have on others? Can we detect our possessive, arrogant or insulting manner of acting or speaking? Step two. We need to become students of human nature. It doesn’t take a Mensa Society IQ to recognize the basic dynamics of our shared humanness. One of the most precious things we all need and hope for is expressed by the clinical term empathic resonance. You and I are yearn-

Too often we are our own worst enemy. We badly want or need something, yet behave in such a way that we diminish our chances of getting it. For example: we’re lonely and look for a friend or someone to love us. And voila, we meet a likeable person who shows some interest in us. And what is our reaction? We desperately cling to them, phone or text message them 10 times a day, or express jealousy if they have other friends. Unless they’re equally obtuse, they’ll soon leave. We drive them away by giving them reason to fear suffocation, or that they’ll lose themselves in the black hole of our needs. On the other hand, we might close the door by exhibiting the opposite behavior. We are lonely and looking, but portray a selfsufficiency, gruffness or coolness that says in unspoken words, “Me, need someone? No way! Needing is only for weaklings.” Once again, the other person goes away. Who wants to stand before a closed door? Multiply those situations in various scenarios and we way get a picture of many people’s lives. There are sales-people who want to make a sale and become pushy or turn into a leach;

Precision Radiotherapy has led the way in bringing some of the world’s most sophisticated cancer treatments to the Cincinnati area. One such treatment is fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy, a non-invasive therapy that enables physicians to keep cancer at bay with minimal risks or side effects. During fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy, a small burst of radiation is delivered to the lesion every day over a period of weeks. Delivering radiation in this way, rather than in a single, concentrated session, allows healthy tissue to recover between treatment sessions.

HOW CAN YOU REDUCE THE CHANCES OF A BRAIN TUMOR COMING BACK? For Joe, it was the perfect solution. He had been to two other centers in the region, telling him that his brain tumor was inoperable. He ultimately ended up at the University of Cincinnati Brain Tumor Center, where specialists successfully removed his oligodendroglioma tumor. Three years after the surgery the tumor reappeared. His specialists recommended fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy at Precision Radiotherapy to eliminate the recurrence. During his treatment, Joe settled into a comfortable routine, walking his sister’s dogs, writing music or playing guitar in the morning, and undergoing high-precision radiotherapy in the afternoon.

IT TAKES PRECISION. Today, Joe has experienced only minimal side effects, while his cancer remains at bay and his life moves forward. Precision Radiotherapy has given Joe peace of mind that there is life

“I feel blessed. I got a second chance at life. Other people need to know that there is hope. That there are other options out there. And that these people just might have the answer that others can’t find.“ – Joe

after a brain tumor, and he is dedicating his life to helping others deal with the challenges it brings. Other state-of-the-art treatments like Frameless Radiosurgery, Tomotherapy and Respiratory Robotics, also available at the Precision Radiotherapy Center, have brought hope and help to many other patients.

Popcorn is the all-ages snack for the season

When we were kids, Mom had a certain aluminum saucepan that she popped corn in. I remember the lid was a bit battered so that when the popcorn started popping, some would pop all the way to the ceiling.

Fun! Now making popcorn is a lot easier with non-stick pans or microwave bags. Popcorn and Halloween are synonymous. It’s the one celebration that transcends ages when it comes to the kinds of food

2 sticks butter or margarine 2 cups firmly packed brown sugar 1 ⁄2 cup corn syrup 1 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄2 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon vanilla 24 cups popped corn (about 2-3 bags microwave popped or 1 cup unpopped)

Boil butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt. Stir constantly, about five minutes. Remove from heat, stir in baking soda and vanilla. Gradually pour mixture over popped corn and mix well. Pour into shallow pans - Carolyn uses two or three 9-by-13-inch pans. Bake at 250 degrees for one hour. Stir every 15 minutes. Cool completely, and break apart. Store in tight containers.

Tips from Rita’s kitchen:

• Add a couple cups nuts to the corn to make a Cracker Jack like treat. • Spray the bowl, spoon, etc. for easy mixing.

Marshmallow popcorn balls or squares

I’ll be making these with the grandkids this week. You can make all sorts of shapes – like ghosts, tombstones, etc. and decorate with tiny candies. You can also put these on sticks, make tiny balls for a party, etc. 1 ⁄2 cup popcorn, popped or 1 bag microwave popcorn, popped (11-12 cups popped corn) 5-6 cups mini marshmal-

lows (about a 10 oz bag) 6 tablespoons butter or margarine 11⁄2 teaspoons vanilla l cup mini M&M type candies (optional) Melt marshmallows and butter over low heat. Stir until smooth. Add vanilla and blend. Combine candies with popcorn in a bowl sprayed with vegetable spray, and pour marshmallow mixture over. Mix well with sprayed spatula and spoon and form into balls with sprayed hands or pour into sprayed 9-by13-inch pan (when chilled, cut into squares).

Monster eyes

You can form the balls ahead minus the olives and refrigerate. Just increase the baking time. 3 cups all purpose baking mix (I use Kroger brand) 1 pound uncooked regular or hot pork sausage 8 oz Muenster or cheddar cheese, shredded Pimento-stuffed olives Preheat oven to 400. Mix everything together and shape into small 11⁄4 inches or so balls. Put on sprayed baking sheet. Press 1 pimiento-stuffed olive into the center of each ball, pressing so it will stick. Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is Macy’s certified culinary professional and family herbalist, an educator and author.

Havdallah under the stars The Jewish Sabbath is officially over on Saturday evening when three stars in the sky are visible, but why? Come find out the answer to that and other astronomical questions at Havdallah Under the Stars at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24, at Northern Hills Synagogue-Congregation B’nai Avraham, 5714 Fields Ertel Road (between Interstate 71 and Snider Road). Families and friends of all ages are welcome, and s’mores and hot chocolate will be provided. The evening will also include a bonfire. The Havdallah ceremony, involving the use of wine, spices and a ceremonial braided candle, marks the symbolic end of Shabbat, and ushers in the new week. After Havdallah is celebrated, Daniel Kuntz from the Cincinnati Observatory will talk about his passion ... the evening sky to the naked eye. He will discuss the planets and their unique characteristics, as well as the space missions that have taken place or are planned to each planet. Kuntz will also point out common constellations and provide a tour of the sky through telescopes. “It’s exciting to think that this program will make a connection between today and yesterday, celebrating an age old tradition under the same night sky our ancestors saw when they looked up,” said Tracy Weisberger, director of education and programming for Northern Hills Synagogue and coordinator of the event. Bring a telescope if you have one. There is no charge for the event, but reservations are appreciated. Call 931-6038.

Bed & Breakfast

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…

NEW YORK 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.
