BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

PVS Nolwood opens facility in Sharonville By Kelly McBride

Walk on the sidewalk whenever one is available, and on the left side, facing traffic, when walking in the roadway.

PEDESTRIANS, how safe are you? By Kelly McBride

kmcbride@communitypress.com

A recent accident that killed a mom and her daughter, out on an evening walk in Colerain Township, serves as a reminder of the importance of pedestrian safety. Jessica Lutz, 29, and her mother, Patricia Lutz, 65, died after being struck by a car while they were out walking near their home Oct. 12. An investigation is pending. According to an April 2014 report by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 4,743 pedestrians were killed and about 76,000 were injured in traffic crashes in the United States in 2012. One hundred fifteen of those deaths occurred in Ohio. That’s one pedestrian killed every two hours, and one injured every seven minutes. The NHTSA reported that 70 percent of the fatalities did not take place at intersections, and the vast majority, 89 percent, happened when the weather was clear, not raining, snowing or foggy. The majority, 70 percent, also took place at night. Municipal law typically re-

STEPS FOR SAFETY » The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration offers theses reminders for pedestrians: » Walk on a sidewalk or path whenever one is available. » If there is no sidewalk or path available, walk facing traffic, on the left side of the road, on the shoulder, as far away from traffic as possible. » Keep alert at all times; don’t be distracted by electronic devices, including radios, smart phones and other devices that take your eyes and ears off the road environment. » Be cautious night and day when sharing the road with vehicles. Never assume a driver sees you. » Cross streets at crosswalks or intersections whenever possible. » If a crosswalk or intersection is not available, locate a well-lit area, wait for a gap in traffic that allows you enough time to cross safely, and continue to watch for traffic as you cross. » Stay off freeways, restricted-access highways and other pedestrian-prohibited roadways. » Be visible at all times. Wear bright clothing during the day, and wear reflective materials or use a flashlight at night.

flects Ohio Revised Code 4511.50, which requires pedestrians to walk on the left side of the road, facing traffic, if no sidewalk is available. If there is a sidewalk, however, pedestrians are supposed to walk on it and not the street, according to ORC 4511.50. Pedestrians, which include walkers and runners, must cross the street at a crosswalk, and if none is available, must

Stewart Elementary students ride the bus to school, so reminders focus on getting on and off safely, according to Principal Carissa Womack. See SAFETY, Page A2

PVS Nolwood, a division of Detroit-based PVS Chemicals, has opened a facility in Sharonville. The PVS Nolwood warehouse at 2551 Crescentville Road opened Oct. 23 with a celebration that included tours of the new, 101,000-square-foot facility on three acres. PVS distributes chemicals to businesses in the beverage, automotive, housing, water and wastewater treatments, and printing industries. “We are excited about the opportunity to partner with the city of Sharonville to expand our business and our service capabilities to our customers,” Tracy Temple, vice president of sales and marketing for PVSNolwood said in a news release. “This new facility will not only help PVS and our customers grow, but will ultimately impact the growth of the local economies of Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky as well.”

These seminars were designed and conducted by H. Michael Sanders, chair of the Electronic Media Department at UC Blue Ash, who curated the exhibit. “The group of works in this show attempt to illustrate the use of photography as a meditative tool for expanding perception and active, mindful engagement with the world around us,” Sanders said. “Various gallery events that are scheduled to coincide with the exhibit are intended to help illuminate this.” Free special events planned during the exhibit include presentations featuring the curator, a faculty panel and a student panel. All of the events will be from noon to 1:30 p.m. and take place Nov. 5, 12 and 19 at the UC Blue Ash Art Gallery. The normal gal-

Interim work both a pet project and a blessing Thanks to Roger Flagler, I was invited to Christ Church Glendale’s Oct. 5 pet blessing. That morning's worship was charming, Evelyn hilarious Perkins and still reverent. COMMUNITY PRESS Joe SnaveCOLUMNIST ly kindly selected three photos of the more than 30 that I took. My only experience with such a religious service was viewing “The Vicar of Dibley” (a British comedy series shown on PBS), when The Rev. Geraldine Granger decided to hold a special service for all the village animals. Although Christ Church Glendale had no cows, geese, chickens, horses or sheep as in the series, they did have aplenty stuffed rabbits, bears, penguins, a giraffe in a sleeping baby’s arms, real puppies and dogs, hamsters, gerbils and even pet photos to be blessed. One pooch righteously accompanied us in singing the hymns. Another assisted The Rev. John F. Keydel with his sermon about our relationship with pets. Keydel is the interim rector of Christ Church since the retirement of The Rev. Roger L. Foote. Keydel is a veteran of pet blessings, having participated in them for five years before beginning interim ministry duties. An interim’s job is to work in churches

that have lost their minister for whatever reason and to help coordinate the search process for another permanent priest. He says that Christ Church will probably begin their process this winter. Keydel loves doing transitional work in congregations. His favorite time for pet blessings is in church on the Sunday closest to St. Francis Day – St. Francis being the patron of pets and animals. He says, “One of the great gifts of the Episcopal Church is our liturgy – it is a pleasure and privilege.” So far no animals have had accidents or fights – but Christ Church was ready with club soda and paper towels just in case. Keydel worked in retail banking for 15 years before becoming ordained into the priesthood in Birmingham, Michigan, by The Rev. R. Stewart Wood, former rector of Christ Church Glendale. Born in Detroit, Keydel moved to St. Louis, then to Connecticut and back to Detroit. Keydel is conducting a series on Christian reformation on Sundays at 10 a.m. in Christ Church, covering the Roman Empire Church in the new world and the American experience of the colonies from the end of the Revolution through the end of the 20th Century.

As a committee, the organization was an independent volunteer group. As a commission, Promote Wyoming will be formalized by ordinances, with objectives and goals. Its members will be appointed by City Council. City Council on Oct. 20 heard the first reading of an ordinance to create the commission. The second and third readings will be during Council’s November and December meetings. “They will work on promotion externally, to bring new residents to the community, and patrons to our businesses,” Tetley said of the Promote Wyoming Commission. “They’re focusing outside the community.” Membership will include residents with backgrounds and expertise in areas such as marketing, public relations, event planning, graphic design, and real estate. The 11-member commission will serve staggered four-year terms. The group will meet at least four times a year and will report to City Council.

STEWART GETS GARDEN SCHOOL Princeton City Schools is bringing the renowned Granny's Garden School to Stewart Elementary through a pilot project that will officially launch this fall. Granny’s Garden School hopes to establish school garden programs at each of Princeton’s eight elementary schools within the next five years. Granny’s Garden School will give Stewart Elementary students new ways to discover science and nature through handson experience in new outdoor classrooms on school grounds. Granny’s curriculum-based multiyear program develops a rich knowledge base that students carry throughout their lives. “The academic, instruction and life skills our students will learn by working in the new school garden program at Stewart Elementary School will enhance their abilities in elementary school and beyond,” said Gary Pack, former Princeton City Schools superintendent.

“Partners like Granny’s Garden School provide an excellent opportunity to add value to the curriculum of our kindergarten through fifth grade students.” Joe Clear, a beloved physical education teacher who retired in 2013 after 15 years at Stewart Elementary is now a school garden educator at Granny’s Garden School and will lead the program. While at Stewart, Clear established the school’s first garden with approximately 80 percent of the classrooms participating, but, as is typical of school garden programs across the country, the program faltered without someone at the helm. “Joe’s experience and extensive research confirmed what we have observed during more than 12 years of working with other school garden developers,” said Roberta “Granny” Paolo, founder and executive director of Granny’s Garden School. “For a school garden program to succeed long term, there needs to be a structure

that includes professional garden educators, lesson plans aligned with state standards and a garden manager to oversee the outdoor classroom. There also needs to be funding from sources other than the school district to sustain the program.” The program at Stewart is modeled after the successful programs established and managed by Granny’s Garden School at Loveland Primary and Elementary Schools. Granny’s Garden School will help Princeton City Schools establish the strategy and structure needed for sustainability. They will focus on building the curriculum and educational staff, along with the skilled gardening teams to build and maintain the program’s gardens. Granny’s will train and provide professional garden educators who work with teachers and lead outdoor classes using Granny’s curriculum-aligned lesson plans. Garden educators also orga-

nize volunteers, pull together classroom materials and tools needed for lessons, guide the class through each activity and clean up afterward. Granny’s staff and volunteers will create and maintain vegetable and flower gardens, a nature trail and outdoor classrooms that make up the physical part of the program. Kyle Bush, principal of the Loveland Early Childhood Center has experienced firsthand the positive impact of a well-run garden school program: “In each of the grade levels served by Granny's Garden School, our curriculum has come to life in ways we never experienced before. The teachers have added a whole new interdisciplinary dimension to their planning. The beauty of the gardens lies not just in its quantities and types of flowers, herbs and vegetables; it truly lies in its power to attract children, teachers, parents and community members,” Bush said. “In short, we have a unique and enriching offering

as part of our overall school program thanks to the tremendous efforts of the staff and volunteers from Granny's Garden School. We truly appreciate the impact of this program.” In addition to garden educators, the success of a school garden program depends on the commitment of the school, community and parents, and, because it does not receive any funding from the school district, is also highly dependent on the many types of financial and in-kind support that the program receives from individuals, businesses and grants. There are multiple ways to become involved and make a tangible difference in the success of the Stewart Elementary garden program. Anyone who is interested in making donations, providing goods or services, or volunteering, should contact Roberta “Granny” Paolo at roberta@grannysgardenschool. org or visit the grassroots funding campaign for the program at fundly.com.

Programs at Great Oaks honored by boards association Three Great Oaks programs were named Outstanding Programs for 2014 by the Ohio School Boards Association, Southwest Region. They are:

Secondary Practical Nursing, Outstanding Ongoing Program

THANKS TO MARJORIE MILLENNOR

Chad Miller demonstrates to Evendale Elementary students how gravity works using a ball and chain. The students were really engaged in the topic of coasters.

MOVING EXPERIENCE

The second-grade students at Evendale are studying force and motion. Parent volunteer Chad Miller, an engineer with the Gravity Group, presented a demonstration of how roller coasters depend on force and motion to work.

The Great Oaks Secondary Practical Nursing program at Scarlet Oaks is one of just four such high school programs in Ohio. Started in 2006, the program allows ambitious high school students to be prepared to take the NCLEX-PN licensing exam by the time they’ve completed high school. To date, the Great Oaks SPN program has a 95 percent cumulative passage rate; the national average for adults taking the NCLEX is 84 percent. While in the program, students stand out, distinguishing themselves in state and national competition. One-third of graduates have continued on, earning – or currently working on – an RN license. More than 10 percent of the program graduates have earned a bachelor of science in nursing. It’s a rigorous program, requiring students who enter to have already passed all parts of the Ohio Graduation Test and to have earned a minimum 3.0 GPA in previous high school work.

CareerX, Outstanding Multi-District Impact Program

THANKS TO MARJORIE MILLENNOR

Evendale Elementary students were questioned on how the force and motion was used in designing roller coasters.

The CareerX program at Diamond Oaks, Laurel Oaks and Scarlet Oaks, provides high school students with special needs the opportunity to explore a wide range of careers and to strengthen their employability skills. Students are chosen from among the 36 school districts served by Great Oaks Career Campuses. Six modules – business/marketing, processing/ production computer technology, construction/industrial, consumer services, and health and human services – allow stu-

dents to test their skills and interests in numerous fields. They learn to work individually and in teams in a simulated workplace setting. Students also learn core employability skills – such as developing a resume, filling out a job application and documenting their skills –and soft skills like professional workplace communication. CareerX, through hands on activities, research, job shadows and self-reflection, allows students to discover how their interests and talents fit into the marketplace. When finished with the programs, they will be able to begin a more intensive career training program or begin working.

Super Service Saturday, Outstanding Volunteer Program Super Service Saturday has become an annual community tradition at the Live Oaks and Laurel Oaks campuses of Great Oaks. One Saturday each spring, students gather at the campus to put their career skills to work in service of the community. Staff, business partners, and community volunteers join with them in an event that has drawn thousands of residents in the past several years. Some examples of activities: » Computer Service Technician and Networking students clean hard drives, provide free software andrecycle used equipment. » Cosmetology students offer manicures, massages and other services. » Early Childhood Education students run games for young children. Other fun activities and free food make this a family event. Community groups, such as the local library auxiliary, also set up booths and offer services. The event accomplishes multiple purposes. First and foremost, it provides free services and activities. Super Service Saturday also gives Great Oaks students the chance to practice and demonstrate the career skills they are learning.

THANKS TO ROD APFELBECK

Wyoming senior Madi Maisel prepares to spike the ball during the District Finals game against Kenton Ridge at Kettering Fairmont’s Trent Arena on Oct. 25. The Cowboys took the first two games but couldn’t close out as Kenton Ridge won 14-25, 18-25, 25-19, 29-27, 15-6. Wyoming finished 24-2 on the season.

MONROE — After not allowing a goal all postseason, Wyoming saw Bellbrook score 1:50 into their Division II regional at Monroe Oct. 29. The Golden Eagles would go on to a 3-0 halftime lead and moved to the regional final with the 5-2 victory. The Cowboys had scrimmaged Bellbrook over the summer and won, but just six days after claiming a district title against Dayton Carroll, Wyoming’s season was over at 17-4. The early goal was a momentum changer. “That kind of took the wind out of our sails,” coach Steve Thomas said. “It took us a while to recover from that one.” The defeat was Wyoming’s first against a Division II opponent. During the regular season the Cowboys fell to Walnut Hills, Colerain and Lebanon. Scoring in the game for Wyoming was junior Christopher Rutter and senior Andy Renggli. During the season, junior Jay Klein, sophomore Andrew Derge and senior To-

by Varland were top point producers. Derge spent most of the Bellbrook game doubleteamed. “Last year as a freshman, not a whole lot of people knew about Andrew,” Thomas said. “This year, everyone knew about Andrew. He’s by far the most technical forward I’ve ever had in my 10 years at Wyoming.” It was the final game for seniors Varland, Renggli, Sam Izenson, Will Carter and Ryan Knapp. The Cowboys will return considerable firepower next year and sophomore goalkeeper Ethan Wayman, who had 14 shutouts, including four in the tournament. “We have a lot sophomores and juniors and we’ll have a good group of seniors next year,” Thomas said. “Hopefully, we’ll be back here or maybe even a little further next year.” The late October game marked Wyoming’s furthest advancement in the tournament under Thomas and was their first loss in 27 days. The Cowboys were 7-0 in the Cincinnati Hills League for their first league crown since 1998.

Princeton water polo a work in progress By Adam Baum abaum@communitypress.com

SHARONVILLE — The Princeton High School water polo program didn’t have the greatest of seasons, record-wise. But, that doesn’t mean it was a total wash. Working through difficult times is how you get better. Both teams, boys and girls, made progress. Jaclyn Jones, the girls’ coach for the last seven seasons, said her team performed “better than I expected,” at the state tournament. Gary Tameris, in his first season as the boys’ coach, said the numbers (of players) weren’t ideal, but “the boys stayed with it and made some real nice progress.” From the beginning of the season to the end of the season,

both teams improved. “We can’t gauge a win-loss record by the type of season we had,” Tameris said. “At the beginning of the season we were getting blown out by 15-20 goals a game. During the state tournament, we played five games; one was a blowout and the other four were decided by one or two goals.” The girls’ team had bright spots as well, according to Jones. They were a small team that worked well together. “Even if we were getting beat, they kept at it,” Jones said. The girls’ team will have to replace senior Kaitlyn Shea, the primary center defender. Jones said Shea led the team in steals and was the Vikings’ “best defensive player.” The girls have a nice group of newcomers, many who contrib-

uted this season. Sophomore Dana Collopy was an important utility player. Jones said the ball would go to Collopy if the Vikings needed a quick goal. The girls’ team also had to work in a brand new goalie this season, freshman Katie Hiles. According to Jones, Hiles was a quick learner and stepped up even though she’s still learning the game. The boys’ team was led by senior captain Will Chaney, who played goalie. “He (Chaney) was quite the influence back there,” Tameris said. “Some games, he took a beating because our defense didn’t hold up. I wish I had him for a few more years. If I did, he could have turned out to be one of the best in the state.” Offensively, the boys’ squad was led by junior Riley Hinkley,

who led the team in shooting and goals scored. Tameris labeled Hinkley as the Vikings’ go-to guy. Tameris concluded that future will come down to whether

Football

» Wyoming 55, Finneytown 6 Junior running back Justin Shields led the Cowboys, carrying the ball 11 times for 98 yards and four touchdowns on Oct. 31. » The St. Edward football team traveled south from Lakewood to Lockland Memorial Stadium on Oct. 25 to take on host Moeller in a battle of Ohio's most decorated Division I state champions. St. Edward, owner of a record 11 titles, set the tone right away against the Crusaders, who have won state nine times, second-most in Ohio history. The Eagles did it on the first play from scrimmage with Shaun Crawford's 80-yard touchdown run, making it an uphill climb the entire game for two-time defending state champion Moeller. Though the Crusaders tried to get back into it with a staunch second-half defensive effort, the Eagles wound up cruising to a 24-10 victory, sending Moeller to its third loss in four games. St. Edward led 17-3 inside the first two minutes of the second quarter, and 24-3 at halftime. » » Moeller beat Louisville Trinity 17-14 Oct. 31. Senior quarterback Matt Crable went 15-for-26 for 233 yards and two touchdowns to senior wide receiver Jack Toomb to lead the Crusaders. Crable also led the team with 85 yards on the ground and Toomb ended the night with six catches for 78 yards and the two touchdowns. Trinity had a chance to tie and possibly take the lead over Moeller, but missed two field goals in the fourth quarter. The Crusaders held Trinity to only 56 yards on the ground. » St. Xavier, ranked No. 1 in The Enquirer Division I coaches’ poll, defeated visiting Louisville St. Xavier 24-6 in the Bombers’ regularseason finale. It was the Bombers’ fifth win in a row and coach Steve Specht’s 100th career win. St. X senior running back Ben Glines had 142 yards and a touchdown. Sophomore quarterback Sean Clifford was 8 of 11 passing for 84 yards and a touchdown.

Bacon VB season ends in semis By Adam Baum abaum@communitypress.com

ST. BERNARD — With the exception of the second set, Roger Bacon and Sparta Highland played an exciting, back-andforth Division III regional semifinal match Oct. 30 at Kettering Fairmont. Sparta Highland (25-2) came out on top, besting Roger Bacon in four sets 25-23, 25-11, 22-25, 25-18. Roger Bacon (20-6) was never really able to sustain much momentum throughout the night. It was Roger Bacon’s first loss since Sept. 4, the Spartans had won 15 in a row after starting the season 4-5. “They’re a good team,” Roger Bacon coach Alyssa Carlotta said of Highland. “Our serve-receive just wasn’t there today.” In the first set, the Spartans got down early, but senior Leah Schmitz was active at the net all night. Schmitz and Kasey Niesen were instrumental in keeping the first set close. Late in the set, Niesen kept a ball alive running into the media table to help win an important point. The second set got away from Roger Bacon quickly. Highland seemed to really use momentum in the second set. Seemingly, every time Bacon blinked Sparta was on another run. But, the story all season long was Roger Bacon’s ability to fight and stay in matches. “I always talk about

how our girls never quit and they didn’t tonight,” Carlotta said. Roger Bacon finally found some momentum late in third set and sustained it to a 25-22 win

forcing a fourth set. The definitive point was a Leah Schmitz block at the net. Schmitz really energized Roger Bacon all night. “They went into that huddle (between the second and third sets) and there was some mashing of teeth, a never say die attitude,” Carlotta said. Carlotta said Lexi Hoffman was very vocal in that huddle and the team really rallied around her and went for it. The fourth and decisive set saw Highland go up early highlighted by long, exciting points. Both schools traveled well and it showed in the fourth set. Midway through the fourth, Highland held a 15-11 lead when Schmitz put the Spartans on her back with three straight

big points; two blocks and a crafty drop shot at the net. Highland’s ability to bounce back was the difference all night. When Highland needed a big play they went to senior Kam Terry all evening. Terry’s a big-time hitter and her spike was powerfully accurate. It’s been some time since Roger Bacon advanced out of the district tournament. The Spartans also won the Greater Catholic League Co-Ed Central Division title this season. “They have a lot to be proud of. These seniors have brought this program back on the map. I am beyond proud of what they’ve accomplished this season,” Carlotta concluded.

Champs reunite The 1964 Woodlawn Flyers Class C knothole city and national champions and the Jake Sweeney Pontiac Class B champions from 1965 celebrated their 50th and 49th reunions at Distasi’s in Wyoming Sept. 13.

Coloring inside the lines … “The question is not about thinking outside the box, but it’s actually understanding the box your in and its location.” – Wes Adamson I think this all started in Kindergarten when the teacher told me to color within the lines! I always had trouble with that one, as either my line areas weren’t big enough or my crayons weren’t the right size. Life is full of lines and structures that serve as controlling devices in our society. Of course many keep us safe such as traffic lines and crosswalks. Some are designed to keep things organized such as the way we shop in stores or rows of desks and cubicles in an office. Like students in a

classroom, we wait for instructions from a teacher or wait for a phone to ring or text, before deciding what we should do Wes next. Adamson Stepping COMMUNITY PRESS outside the GUEST COLUMNIST box is simply allowing yourself to examine issues in ways you haven’t thought about before. Some say it’s just being creative, using imagination, or having a “problem solving” mind set with a really “no correct oneanswer” solution. Thinking outside the box is being seen now as very trendy

hip, and is glamorized in advertisements from cars to clothes, drinks, and even vacation spots. The image being sold is one of being above the crowd, an independent thinker, not wearing or driving what could be so-called “generic” in society today. Add to the commercial a beautiful woman or hot guy, and the move to “outside the box” thinking becomes more appealing. But let us not forget that the outside can quickly turn into the inside. Remember the book “Animal Farm” by George Orwell, published in 1945, where the farm animals revolted against the self-centered farmer and started a rebellion, taking the farm over in a revolution?

Better ways to dispose of your leaves Autumn is upon us and crispness is in the air. As the leaves pile up, it may be tempting to dispose of them quickly by burning. Although leaves, small branches and other yard trimmings are natural, they produce a variety of harmful pollutants upon burning. Open burning is especially harmful to those with asthma or other respiratory illnesses. There are several options to dispose of yard trimmings that won’t pollute the air. Take advantage of curbside yard trimmings collection or

The lead animals being outside the box, moved abruptly inside the box creating their own set of standards, which they expected everyone else to follow! While writing this, I discovered interesting research results from a study that found people with high levels of creativity are more commonly found in families who have mental disorder in their history. These results of course made me feel better as I quickly checked our family tree for relatives locked up in a mental hospital. Other than my wife’s Uncle Harry, who

CH@TROOM Oct. 29 question Did you or will you vote early this year, or will you wait until Election Day? Why?

“I have voted via the mail on absentee ballots for the past 8 years or so. The ballot is available ahead of time from Hamilton County via phone or www.votehamiltoncounty.org. “There are many advantages to this mail-in method such as no lines, weather concerns or driving and parking concerns. The best part is I can sit at home with all the information in front of me and take my time intelligently filling out the ballot and mail it in early. Every year I see that hundreds of people stand in line downtown for early voting at the board of elections. They are in line and my ballot has already been counted. Go figure!”

T.D.T.

“I have never understood early voting. I worked as a pilot for 46 years, and never had a problem with getting an absentee ballot. Early voting made it possible for me to go down to the Board of Elections rather than mail in the ballot, and watch the lines of people being brought in with people to ‘help’ them get registered and vote. Many were quite open about being students not from the area, and quite possibly registered to vote elsewhere. Made me wish for a

D. B.

“I did already vote through an absentee ballot. I started this one year when I knew I was going to be out of town. but when it became available as a means of early voting I opted for this method in almost every election. It gives me time to sit with the ballot and then take time to do some research on the candidates and issues so I can make as informed a decision as possible. “Also, I can then ignore all the negative ads, mailers and such that seem to inundate the election as the actual in person election grows closer.”

NOVEMBER 5, 2014 • TRI-COUNTY PRESS • B3

Lebanese stew a treasured heirloom recipe Yesterday my throat and head were stuffed up and the last thing I wanted to do was work in the herb garden. Mother Nature was cooperating with the weather, so I knew I had to start getting the garden cleaned up for winter. I was grumbling since my task seemed to Rita loom so Heikenfeld large. The RITA’S KITCHEN weeds had sprung up just about everywhere. I was taking my garden plaque down when I stopped to really read it once again. My attitude changed immediately. I thought you’d enjoy seeing the verse I read that put me in a positive frame of mind.

Helen Sarky’s Lebanese vegetarian green bean stew I love this recipe from Lebanese friend, Helen Sarky, an Anderson Township reader. A version of these beans are going to be served at the upcoming “A taste of Lebanon” held at St. Anthony’s of Padua church on Victory Parkway. The feast is on Sunday, Nov. 23, from noon to 6 p.m. and the menu will also contain kibbee (the main meat dish of Lebanon), hummus, vegetarian falafel, stuffed cabbage and grape leaf rolls, among other traditional favorites. These are gen-

erations-old recipes, treasured heirlooms. They’ll also have dancing and music and carryout, as well. Check out the site www.stanthonyofpad uachurch.com or give them a call at 513-9610120. I’m already hungry… 1 pound fresh or frozen green beans, cut into 2” lengths 2 tablespoons olive oil 1/2 cup sliced thinly onions 1 tablespoon minced garlic (opt) 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon or to taste Salt and pepper to taste 2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint 1-1/2 cups diced tomatoes 1 cup water or chicken stock 1 tablespoon lemon juice Heat oil over medium heat until hot. Add onions and sauté until caramelized (3 minutes); add garlic and sauté another 2 minutes. Stir in cinnamon, salt, pepper and mint and keep stirring. Add tomatoes, water and lemon juice and keep stirring. Add beans and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover pan and cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Serve over a bed of cooked rice.

Cauliflower puree

According to the foodies, cauliflower is the new kale. I just harvested some Jerusalem artichokes from the garden and roasted those with some cauliflower and

Brussels sprouts. They were a delicious and different side dish. But you know what? Cauliflower can stand on its own as a nice puree to go alongside that Thanksgiving turkey. Lower in carbs than potatoes, this puree can be done several hours ahead and reheated. 2 heads cauliflower, stems and leaves removed, florets cut up Lemon juice to taste 1/2 stick butter or substitute or more to taste Half & half or whipping cream - can be low fat half & half Salt and pepper to taste Chopped parsley for garnish Either steam the cauliflower or cook in boiling salted water until soft but not mushy. Drain very well, return to pot and shake over high heat to get rid of any excess moisture. Now either put it in processor or beat until smooth in mixer. If using processor, pulse until it’s smooth as you like. Beat in lemon juice, butter and half & half until it’s the consistency you want. Usually 1/2 cup of liquid is sufficient, but it depends upon the size of the cauliflower. Sprinkle with parsley for color.

This annual program provides gifts for low-income families and seniors who are sponsored by generous individuals, groups and companies. Each year, the program serves approximately 500 families and seniors, in total, ensuring they receive gifts for Christmas. Sponsors for Adopt-aFamily can specify the size of family for whom they will provide gifts, and there are no requirements as to how much is spent on the gifts – that is left to the discretion of the sponsors. Once agreeing to sponsor a family, sponsors will be provided with information that provides a wish list of key items de-

sired by the family, but it is left to the sponsors to determine what they’ll purchase and how much they’ll spend. Sponsors will be asked to purchase and wrap the gifts for their sponsored family, and drop them off on Dec. 8 or Dec. 9 at a location to be provided to them. The best way to get started is to complete the

Adopt-a-Family Sponsor Application form, which can be found online by visiting swo.salvationarmy.org. Or,for more information, contact The Salvation Army via email at swo.adoptafamily@use. salvationarmy.org. » This is the 10th year for Matthew 25: Ministries’ Fighting Hunger Food Drive, which col-

lects canned and nonperishable food for distribution to local food pantries and shelters during the holiday season. Non-perishable food items may be dropped off at Matthew 25: Ministries, 11060 Kenwood Road, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays through Dec. 6.

PROVIDED

Co-workers who sponsored a family for The Salvation Army's Adopt-a-Family program, drop off the gifts they purchased, at a previous year's event.

Lung Cancer survivor, Toni Kuhlman, with UC Cancer Institute physicians, Sandra Starnes, MD and John Morris, MD

Our expert medical team made the difference. “My daughter took me aside and told me to cry my eyes out that night, but the next morning, to go in fighting. And when I met the expert team at the UC Cancer Institute, I knew I had a chance.” ~ Toni Kuhlman – non-smoker, lung cancer survivor
