Thanks to a remarkable group of women, the Glendale Community Library resides in the Harry Whiting Brown Community Center on Sharon Road. It is a lending library, open to residents from all communities. At one time, a library was in the front and nurses gave tetanus and polio shots in the back of the building. SEE LIFE, B1

A familiar face will be back on Evendale Village Council as Chris Schaefer earned the majority vote to earn one of the three open seats. Incumbents Stiney Vonderhaar and Doug Lohmeier round out the open seats, with Lohmeier defeating incumbent Jeff Albrinck in the unofficial results by only two votes. Schaefer had previously served on Evendale Council from 1983 to 1990 and from 2003 to 2007. He also served as village solicitor from 1990 to 2002. Schaefer said margins are usually pretty slim, but he had never seen this close of a vote count. Lohmeier, who has been active in Evendale council since 1993 and served as mayor from 1999 to 2003, said his decision to not put up yard signs may have had an impact on the election. “They do serve a purpose,” Lohmeier said of the signs, adding that they help voters with name recognition when they go to the polls.

Lisa Holloway came to the polls mainly to vote on the issues. Though Springdale had a contested council seat, “I wasn’t familiar with either candidate,” she said.


Bridget Glover, center, brought her 6-year-old twins, Natalie, left and Molly, with her to vote in Wyoming. “I didn’t vote for all seven,” she said of the city council candidates. “I voted for the four I want on the council.”

What gas aggregation means to Glendale residents, A2 A look at other local races, A2 Final unofficial results, A2 With a small margin separating Albrinck and Lohmeier, the vote count is subject to change in the next few weeks. Sally Krisel, director of the Hamilton County Board of Elections, said they have 21 days to certify official results. She said there are still provisional, unscanned and absentee ballots to factor into the vote count. Absentee ballots are counted in the 10 days following the election if they have been postmarked on or before Nov. 2, the day before the election. “Whatever the outcome is, it is not going to change what I do,” Lohmeier said. He said he will continue to do his job as an elected official until his term is up. Schaefer, looking ahead to his four-year term, said he has worked with all current members of council in some capacity and that his return to council does not require becoming acquainted with

the other members. His main goals are to examine the budget to limit spending, but also to keep public safety services and other services through Gorman Heritage Farm at their current level. “I’m looking forward to overcoming economic hurdles, spur some greater development,” Schaefer said. Council is scheduled is scheduled to swear in the new and reelected members at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 1, in the council chambers.Wyoming City Council will look the same for the next two years, though other areas’ governing bodies will be slightly changed.

Brian Messmore unseated Alan Hoeweler. He will be joined by incumbents Debbie Grueninger, Monica Alles-White and William Aronstein.

Springdale City Council

Julie Matheny won’t be joining her father, Mayor Doyle Webster, in city hall as Holly McQuillanEmerson defeated her, 57 percent to 43 percent, in the city’s only

contested Council race. Emerson challenged Matheny’s ability to remain objective as a councilwoman. Other councilmembers re-elected were Tom Vanover and Marjorie Harlow. Lawrence Hawkins was elected as an uncontested newcomer to council. Lisa Holloway’s focus was ballot issues, not the council race. “I wasn’t familiar with either candidate,” she said.

Wyoming School Board

Three current members of the Wyoming School Board were met with a couple of challengers. A married couple, Vernon and Jennifer Etler, joined the race, but were defeated in the election. Bridget Glover said the fact that the Etlers were married, or the lawsuit that Vernon Etler had filed against the school board for which he was running, wasn’t a factor for her. “I knew who I was voting for,” she said. It bothered Steve Bonnell. “That has to be settled first,” he said of the lawsuit and Etler’s candidacy. “That’s a conflict of interest.”

Patty Taylor considers voting a privilege. “I don’t care if there’s just one person on the ballot,” she said. “I will vote.” Her husband, Bob Taylor said an whether a race is uncontested doesn’t matter. “Everybody and their brother could have filed.”

The Dan Beard Council Scout Achievement Center has been open since July 13, but was finally able to celebrate a grand opening Oct. 17. The event included many Scout-related activities including outdoor Scout cooking, a pumpkin patch, a mock jamboree campsite and other activities. Marketing and district executive for the Dan Beard Council, Ken Brunner, said the event brought in around 1,500 people that were able to join in the fun and get a look at the new facility at 10778 Reading Road.

was passed with an overwhelming 76 percent support, will allow residents a choice of suppliers of electric and natural gas. Wyoming voters had passed a similar ballot issue in 2008, and the city chose Integrys as its natural gas supplier. Rates from June through November have seen a 10 percent to 26 percent drop with Integrys over Duke, according to information provided by Wyoming assistant City Manager Lynn Tetley. According to that information, the purchase price for the gas would determine the cost to the homeowner. Integrys offered a fixed rate with a flex down provision, which meant that gas rates are fixed, but if prices decrease, the rate will go down. It would not increase. Though Integrys is the supplier, the gas is distributed through Duke, and billing is still done through Duke, though the Integrys name is noted on the bill. Duke also continues to provide service to homeowners. Glendale resident Donna Loudon said she’s glad to have a choice. “It’s a good thing to be looking into,” she said.

Students wield gavel for special Sharonville Council meeting By Kelly McBride Reddy

Princeton students got a taste of local government as a group of juniors and seniors attended Student Government Day in Sharonville. The daylong event included tours of the police department, fire department and recreation center, and ended with a mock city council meeting. The students took their seats on the dais, filling in for council members and administration, discussing and voting on legislation. One of the ordinances discussed during the mock meeting was a police issue. It would establish mandatory training for police officers after the target zone was changed for TASER deployment. According to the legislation, the device manufacturer had issued a warning about potential hazards of shooting the weapon on sensitive areas of the body, including the chest. It called for training that would exclude deployment in those areas. “This is necessary,” said Caroline Pickering, representing Ward III. “If we don’t train them to avoid these areas, our police department will be held liable.”

A mock version of city council was run by Princeton students, from left: front, Nicole Brooks, Heather Hoppe and Nicole Donnelly; back, Lakia Shanee Gipson, Taylor Ross, Adam Helsley, Natasa Vidovic, Caroline Pickering and Jennifer Irwin. “How long will it take to train them?” Natasa Vidovic, of Ward IV, asked. “What are you going to do in the time?” “Our main goal is to pro-

tect our residents, and if we can prevent a heart attack, I feel this is necessary,” said Adam Helsley, a councilman at large. “I think it’s worth the money.”

“Lawsuits cost more,” Pickering agreed. “I think it’s worth it.” Most of her fellow councilmembers agreed. They passed the ordinance, 4-2.

As Springdale prepares to turn 50, the city is planning a celebration that will capture moments for the future. The celebration will include an open house at the Municipal Building from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 15. “When we built this building, we built a time capsule in the rotunda,” Mayor Doyle Webster said. “But we never put anything in it.” He asked council members to submit ideas for items to be placed in the capsule. Items dating from 1992, when the building was erected, will be put inside. “That’s when the capsule should have been stocked,” Webster said.

As the village of Glendale examines whether to change its trash pickup to include recycling, it has been collecting information and feedback from residents. Resident Bob Koors presented a report on recycling in the village during a Village Council meeting Nov. 2. Over the summer, Glendale performed a study to gauge interest in curbside recycling, as well as to study various options for a program. The village has a dropoff center on Sharon Road, where he estimated that just over 8 percent of trash is deposited. The village has backdoor pickup by Rumpke, at

“It seems like a long time, but it’s not all that far off,” Webster said. Also during the meeting: • Interim Police Chief William Hafer introduced the department’s newest

lieutenant. Webster administered the oath of office as Lynn McKee was promoted from sergeant to lieutenant. McKee’s family attended the ceremony, and his wife, Holly, pinned his new rank to his uniform. • Council voted down an ordinance upon the request of the administration that had asked for authorization to auction a vehicle no longer in use by the police department. City Administrator Derrick Parham explained that the surplus vehicle, a Crown Victoria with 135,000 miles, could be used by other departments instead. Council supported the request, turning down the ordinance with a 6-0 vote. Councilman James Squires wasn’t present at the meeting.

Another ordinance would outlaw the sending of text messages on a cell phone or other electronic device for drivers in the city limits. “How are we going to enforce this,” Taylor Ross asked. “There’s no way to enforce this amendment,”

an increased cost to the village for the residents’ convenience. Koors said that that type of pickup is offered only by Rumpke. “Curbside pick-up would offer more competitive bidding,” he said in his report to council. Koors estimated the savings from a curbside collection at $77,000 per year. The cost of a recycling program would run about $25,000, he said, “and if we negotiated a contract based on tonnage, the recycling would reduce that cost by an estimated $9,500 for a true net cost of $15,500.” “The upshot of this change from rear-door to curbside trash, plus recycling pickup, could net the village over $60,000 for other village needs,” Koors said.

Princeton senior in Army bowl

On Thursday Oct. 29, the U.S. Army presented Princeton High School senior Spencer Ware with his U.S. Army AllAmerican Bowl jersey. Representatives from Ware the US Army, the US Army All-American Bowl and Anthony Munoz were on hand for the ceremony. Spencer is one of only 90 high school football players from around the country to be selected for this honor.

Moeller stunned

The Moeller football team was stunned in the first round of the playoffs in a 45-10 loss to No. 7 Middletown. The Crusaders, who were No. 2 in the region, lost their second straight game after winning the first nine of the season. Moeller had difficulty containing Middletown quarterback Caleb Watkins and the Crusaders offense had trouble moving the football. Middletown had 430 yards of offense and Moeller gained only 175, with much of it coming late in the game. Moeller fell down 12-3 at halftime, with the defense forcing three turnovers in the first half. Moeller’s offensive woes continued in the second half, and the Crusaders defensive difficulties increased. Moeller finished the season at 9-2.

MND graduate hits career high

For the fourth time in the last six matches, the University of Cincinnati volleyball team hit more than .300 as a team as the Bearcats defeated Syracuse University 3-1 (21-25, 25-13, 25-18, 25-8) Nov. 1 at Fifth Third Arena. The Bearcats continued to struggle in the beginning of the second set until sophomore Lindsay Upton, a Mount Notre Dame High School graduate, provided a spark off the bench. Trailing 7-5, Upton led a nine-point charge, which included three straight service aces, catapulting Cincinnati in front, 14-7. Upton finished with a career-high four aces and added three digs off the bench for UC.

Intensity takes Wyoming to final 4

By Mark Chalifoux

The Wyoming girls’ soccer team is headed to the state final four after a 2-1 overtime win over Madeira in the regional final Nov. 7. Head coach Kellie Siler said it’s the team’s intensity that has carried Wyoming through the postseason. “It was just our drive not to give up or give in,” she said. “We’re a team that has good team unity and we keep finding ways to win, so that’s very impressive.” The appearance in the regional final is Wyoming’s first since 2002. The district title, which Wyoming earned with a 2-1 win over McNick and a 1-0 win over Greenview, is the program’s first since 2004. The Cowboys are now 19-0-2 on the season. One big key to the team’s success was the outstanding defense, which surrendered only six goals all season. “We’re very strong defensively, and offensively we’ve scored 70 goals,” Siler said. “Everyone plays together as a unit and the girls cover for each other and support each other. That’s been the real difference for us this year.” Wyoming is led by goalkeeper Alexa Levick, who set the school record for shutouts with 16. Nikki McKee was a standout sweeper for Wyoming and Jillian Anderson and Meghan McAllister were two other key players for the Cowboys. Hailey Schlager in the midfield, and Michelle Jolson, Jenny Marck and Bonnie Grace up top were also key playmakers for Wyoming. Siler said the team had great support through the season. “The crowds have been fabulous,” she said. “We’ve had outstanding support from the school and from the community.” Wyoming had highlights

other than the regional final win. A 1-0 win over Indian Hill in the final game of the regular season to clinch a CHL championship was a big one, along with the 1-0 win over Greenview to win the district title. And one of the season’s biggest highlights wasn’t even a result of the play on the field. The team held a fundraiser at a game to benefit one of the soccer parents who is battling cancer. The team publicized the benefit and organized several different activities and aspects of the event that raised nearly $3,000. Siler said she was as proud of the girls’ efforts in the fundraiser as she was of their efforts on the soccer field. “It makes me so proud of them. Soccer is just the avenue we use to learn

Wyoming's keeper Alexa Levick registered her 16th shutout of the season. those life lessons about taking care of each other and working hard and never giving up and giving in, even when times are tough,” Siler said. “It makes me so proud to be a part of this team and to see them do things that are greater than the actual game of soc-

cer.” Siler said the support the girls have for each other off the field and on is one reason Wyoming had such a successful season. “There’s no pettiness and no fighting. They admire and respect each other and their accomplishments come

as a team, not as individuals,” she said. “For them, it’s just going out there and playing a game with their best friends.” The team’s next game is 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 11. The location was not announced before press time.

Princeton’s Saunders saves best for last By Tony Meale

Claudia Saunders didn’t win a state championship this past weekend, but her performance was arguably the most impressive of the bunch. Hampered by injuries the vast majority of the year, Saunders, a sophomore at Princeton High School, placed sixth overall at the Division I Cross Country State Championship at Scioto Downs in Columbus Nov. 7. She finished in a time of 18:42.96. Anything lower than 19 (minutes) is gravy,” Princeton head coach Jim Crumpler said before the run. “I’d be very happy with a top10 finish.” And that’s just what Saunders delivered. She advanced to state after finishing second at districts (19:46.90) behind Glen Este junior Michelle Thomas and fifth at regionals (19:20.30). That Saunders even made it to state is impressive. Toward the end of track season last year, she


Princeton High School sophomore Claudia Saunders, who finished third in the 300 hurdles at the state track meet in June, placed sixth overall at the Division I Cross Country State Championship at Scioto Downs in Columbus Nov. 7. suffered a toe injury that sidelined her for the summer and much of the cross

country season this fall. “If you’re unable to train in the summer, your cross-

country season can be difficult, and it has been; she’s been playing catch up,” head coach Jim Crumpler said. “But (the fact she qualified for state) speaks to her innate ability and her tenacity – her drive to be the best.” Yet Saunders, who is as competitive as they come, hadn’t been exactly thrilled with her performance this season – even with the injury. “That’s just her,” Crumpler said, laughing. “She was a little disappointed not about the placements (at districts and regionals), but about the times.” Saunders finished fourth at the GMC meet this season in a time of 19:29.39 – more than a minute slower than last year’s conference run of 18:23.59, which was second to none except twotime state champion and Oak Hills grad Brooklyne Ridder. “(Saunders) wants to break 18 (minutes),” Crumpler said. “If she had been healthy all year, her goal would’ve been to finish second at state and maybe make a run at Michelle

Thomas.” Thomas finished fourth at state this year in a time of 18:19.82; senior Meredith Wagner (18:03.90) of Sylvania Northview won the state title. It was an impressive debut at Scioto Downs for Saunders, who missed qualifying for state last year due to illness. “She was able to get out of districts (in 2008), but she could barely breathe at regionals,” Crumpler said. “I saw her a half-mile into the race, and I could tell by her stride it wasn’t going to be a pretty run.” Yet Saunders redeemed herself at the state tournament in track this past June. She qualified in the 100 and 300 hurdles and finished third in the 300 (42.65). Rest assured that Saunders’ cross-country goals next season will be to finish first at the GMC meet and win a state title. “She's a top student and a nice kid who gets alone with everyone,” Crumpler said. “She's got a lot of talent, but she's very humble about it. She sets high goals but doesn't flaunt it.”

Sports & recreation

Wyoming High School won in the first round of the football playoffs in a thriller for the second straight week, and the road doesn't get much easier for the Cowboys. Wyoming, which won 34-32 over Eaton in round one of the playoffs, will face No. 6 Monroe in the Region 6 semifinal Nov. 13. The Cowboys won the first-round game with a late touchdown by Isaiah Nearor after falling behind late in the fourth quarter. Wyoming had a similar finish against Indian Hill in a 50-49 win in week 10. Wyoming's offense was on display against Eaton, as Wyoming totaled 412 total yards. Kyle Seyfried threw for 235 yards and ran for

two touchdowns. Nearor had two touchdown runs in addition to 110 rushing yards. Nearor also had a key interception and Max Kadish had a key fumble recovery for the Wyoming defense. The defense did surrender 433 yards and 32 points but will look to get back on track against Monroe, who only scored 12 points in an upset of No. 3 Chaminade Julienne. The region's No. 1seed was also upset in week one, as Goshen fell 28-7 to Springfield Shawnee. The Wyoming offense, which has been fantastic all season long, will face a stiff test from Monroe, who held Chaminade Julienne to only 140 total yards. The location of the game was not announced before press time.

Wyoming senior running back Isiah Nearor dives for the first of his two touchdowns in Wyoming’s 34-32 opening round playoff win over Eaton on Friday at Wyoming. Nearor’s second TD was the clincher, staking Wyoming to its final margin. Nearor ran for 110 yards on the night, plus picked up an interception on defense.

Bombers finish 2nd at state cross country By Tony Meale

Vying for its fourth state title in school history, the St. Xavier High School cross country team finished second at the Division I State Championship at Scioto Downs in Columbus Nov. 7. The Bombers, which totaled 118 points, finished behind state champion Cleveland St. Ignatius (82) but ahead of Sylvania Northview (137) and Mason (146), which took third and fourth, respectively. St. X was led by junior Jack Butler (16:28.52), who finished 24th overall, and seniors Eric Gruenbacher (16:32.12) and Chris Hanson (16:33.03), who finished 27th and 29th, respectively. Also contributing were senior Gus Walter (16:59.43), junior Greg Sanders (16:59.69), senior Tyler Smith (17:11.29) and senior Mike Gerhardt (18:05.28). Mason junior Zach Wills (15:45.11) won the state title for the second consecutive year. The Bombers advanced to state after claiming their second GCL-South title in three years and winning district and regional championships. The key to their success

Hanson helped the Bombers to a second-place finish. was depth, as 29 Bombers broke 18 minutes and 13 broke 17 minutes. St. X also had four runners – Butler, Gruenbacher, Hanson and Walter – earn first-team allleague honors. No other squad had more than two. “From the very beginning of the season, the guys knew we should have a great deal of depth, and that makes practices more competitive,” head coach Mike Dehring said. “The guys realized, ‘If I want to be in the top 7, I need to run today. Because there are a lot of guys who are talented and who want my spot.’” But Dehring was impressed with the maturity and humility of all his run-

ners this season. “We have a lot of guys who could run in the top 7 for other squads, but even though they don’t, they still love and support the guys who do,” he said. Arguably the Bombers’ most consistent performer was Gruenbacher, who finished third at districts and fourth at regionals. “Eric has brought the level of everyone’s training up to his own; that might be the biggest thing he’s done for us this season,” Dehring said. “The consistency of his work ethic and the way he approaches everything have been fantastic. If you tell him to do something, he’ll do it to the full letter of the

law.” Dehring was also pleasantly surprised with his two non-senior runners at state – Sanders and Butler, who placed second overall at districts. St. X, which finished 12th at Scioto Downs in 2008, has qualified for the state tournament 22 of the last 23 years, including 18 straight from 1987 to 2004. The Bombers won state titles in 1998, 2000 and 2003. “Our goal every day – whether it’s in practice or a meet – is to be as good as we can be,” Dehring said. “As with anything in coaching or teaching, all you want to see is a kid succeed and get better, and we’ve had so many guys make incredibly leaps forward. It’s been a great year.”

Two Roger Bacon High School cross country runners – senior Matt Wurtzler and junior Emily Richmond – competed at the Division II State Championship at Scioto Downs in Columbus Nov. 7. Wurtzler (16:36.30) finished 20th overall, while Richmond (20:39.82) finished 65th. Junior Michael Brajdic (15:49.81) of Bay Village Bay won a state championship on the boys’ side, and junior Christina Blair (18:39.71) of Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy led the girls. With his run, Wurtzler achieved his goal of a top25 finish. “He didn't settle for just qualifying,” head coach Jan Ryan said. “He (went out) there with a goal to accomplish.” Wurtzler, who was the GCL-Central Runner of the Year, advanced to state after winning a district championship (17:27.80) and placing seventh at regionals (16:43.57). “Matt trains very hard in the offseason, and he's got a lot of determination,” Ryan said. “This season has been an accumulation of all his goals, from (league) Runner of the Year, to district championship to a top-10 finish at regionals. He wouldn't let anything stand in his way.” Richmond, meanwhile, also hoped for a top-25 finish, but her run to the state tournament was impressive nevertheless; she finished second at districts (21:09.90) and 10th at regionals (20:11.99).

“Emily has a lot of the same qualities as Matt,” Ryan said. “She keeps up her training and is willing to do whatever it takes.” Richmond, who was unable to compete in the league meet this year due to an intestinal infection, fell one spot short of qualifying for state as a sophomore. “Last year she was a little disappointed,” Ryan said. “We really primed her for regionals because we knew it would take a great race to get her to state, and trying to keep fresh legs for several weeks can be difficult.” Richmond figures to be in the state mix once again as a senior, while Wurtzler, who was a first-team allleague selection each of the last two years, capped an impressive career at Roger Bacon.

I know that many residents would like to see the space dedicated, at least in part, to public use, and that many are willing to work together to help make that happen.

Madeira grad raises awareness By Amanda Hopkins

During her efforts to raise awareness for her trip to the United Nations COP15 Climate Conference in Copenhagen, Liz Trombley shared a Skyline lunch and discussion with a UK Deputy Consul General based in Chicago. The 2001 Madeira High School graduate said Geoff Brammer, the British diplomat, had heard of her through her blog she is keeping as she fundraises for the trip to the conference. Trombley said her blog has been helpful as she attempts to network and raise awareness for her trip and the environmental issues at stake. Trombley applied for observer status at the climate conference through SustainUS, an organization made up of youth working for sustainable development. Trombley and around 25 others from the organization will make the trip. Trombley studied international affairs at the University of Cincinnati, but became interested in the environment after attending a Power Shift conference where she was among a large group of other youth that lobbied congressmen for action on climate change. “It was really a turning point in my life,” Trombley said. With SustainUS, Trombley is working on develop-


Liz Trombley, a 2001 graduate of Madeira High School, will be traveling as a delegate with SustainUS to attend the United Nations climate talks in Copenhagen in December.

In her own words

To follow Liz Trombley as she prepares for her trip to the United Nations COP15 Climate Conference in Copenhagen, visit her blog at www.LizTo

ing policy on carbon pollution and looking for ways to reduce it. Trombley will be leaving Dec. 1 to talk with Senators in Washington, D.C., about climate change before attending the youth conference in Copenhagen from Dec. 4-6. The climate conference will be Dec. 7-18. The goal for the conference is to push lawmakers into action because she said it will “determine how the world goes about tackling climate change.” “We want to bring home to our policymakers ... our future is at stake,” Trombley said. She encourages youth to learn more about climate change and other environmental issues and to write to their senators about their concerns.

Jackie Marconet, Cynthia Beischel, Angela Reed, Nancy Parks, Jean Smith and Ellen Bockenstette in their well-stocked Glendale Community Library. Notice the magnificent mirror to the left, one of two provided by Dr. Stewart Halbauer.

Glendale library is a story of teamwork

Thanks to a remarkable group of women, the Glendale Community Library resides in the Harry Whiting Brown Community Center on Sharon Road. It is a lending Evelyn library, open to resiPerkins dents from all communities. At one Community time, a library was in Press the front and nurses columnist gave tetanus and polio shots in the back of the building. Third generation Glendaler Ellen Bockenstette remembers learning to read there before the public library opened. Her grandmother owned a candy store in the neighborhood. Years before the library branches offered story time, Ellen listened to Mrs. Vera Henschen make books come alive. Nowadays, story time is back once a month, averaging 20 youngsters learning crafts, eating snacks and having their imaginations tickled. Jean Smith is from Pittsburgh and moved here from Mobile, Ala., on Halloween 1980. Jackie Marconet is from Carthage. Married to fourth generation Glendaler, Bob, they moved into his family home in 1993. Nancy Parks moved here in 1972. Her great grandfather lived on Coral in

a house owned by only two families, the Hermans and the Hoyles. Glendale reminds Angela Reed of growing up in Norwich, N.Y. She and husband T.J. arrived in 1998 when P&G transferred them. She bakes the story time cookies, and he decorates them. Cynthia Beischel fell in love with the village when her 1965 Seven Hills junior prom was held at The Lyceum. She and her husband moved here in 1974. It’s funny how fate conspires to weave a tableau. Jean happened to read an article about neighbors starting the Monroe Community Library. With support from the school district, it was still going strong two years later, so she and Cynthia got permission from the HWB Center to open a library there. The county library closed about 25 years ago, and the building needed a lot of work. Only the U-shaped bookcases and carpet, beautiful mirrors and chandelier previously donated by Dr. Stewart Halbauer were there a year ago. The response was tremendous. Dr. Halbauer refurbished the fireplace. Attorney Al Nippert donated additional bookshelves. Legs were reinstalled on the piano, Nancy redid the chairs, and the Glendale Boy Scouts trimmed the hedges and did the heavy work. Bags and bags of books were left on the front porch; duplicates are sold for a free-will donation at the street fair. A grant purchased the new sign

fronting the building. Dick Gregory provided materials and his woodworking skills, and still does. A recent healthy donation is greatly appreciated. Bubbling with activity, the library presents speakers such as Chris Payne and Devin Parrish. The book club meets once a month. Jean just purchased 12 adult best sellers, Jackie will have turkey bingo at this month’s story time, and teen Julia Kempf will read to the little folks. Every third Thursday, Roger Fairbanks plays the piano from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Cynthia is working on a display of 16 Glendale authors. Jackie and Nancy decorate at Christmas. Plans include teen time and pajama time, window blinds and computers since they currently keep track of book lending the old-fashioned way. The staff consists of 25 regular volunteers and 15 substitutes. Their black squirrel logo was designed by Tom Dusterberg, and there will be a contest to name the furry little scholar. These community spirited ladies all have jobs, grandchildren and many other responsibilities, so they aren’t looking for something to fill up their time. There isn’t a Peggy Bundy in the bunch; they are doing this from their hearts. Evelyn Perkins writes a regular column about people and events in the Tri-County Press area.

Food drive for center

Valley Interfaith Food and Clothing Center, located at 420 W. Wyoming Ave. in Lockland offers assistance to its neighbors in surrounding communities. They provide food, clothing, emergency financial assistance, and other necessary services. The hours of operation for the center are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Wednesday nights from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Food and clothing donations are accepted anytime in the bin out front. The center is sponsored by 28 local faith communi-

ties; a majority of those communities are in Wyoming. According to president of the board of trustees Marne Kappes, the center serves more than 18,000 people each year. For most Jewish people, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is the day when Jews fast and go to services all day. Yom Kippur is a solemn time of soul searching, asking for forgiveness and inward reflection. Rabbi Sandford Kopnick encourages the members of his congregation, The Valley Temple, to donate the food that they would eat that day to its annual food drive. At the end of September, The Valley Temple located in Wyoming donated over 4,000 food items to the Val-

ley Interfaith Food and Clothing Center. “The Valley Temple food drive allowed us to offer a variety of food that we are usually unable to offer,” Kappes said. “Our holiday focuses on repentance and fasting. The goal was to try to get each family to donate a days worth of food per family member as a symbolic gesture from those commemorating a holiday where we fast to those who are forced to do with less due to their circumstances,” Kopnick said. The food donation was generous and plentiful, but in less than three short weeks, all of the food was given out. The center also accepts cash donations. For every $1 donated, the center is

This year, visits to the center are up twenty-one percent for food and clothing. In addition to the need for food and clothing, the center also needs volunteers. Those who want to donate their time can sort donations, and assist clients in choosing food and clothing. “Even with the help of 100 volunteers, we always need more hands and hearts.” said Kappes.

Hear what some of your friends think of you w i t h dilemmas such as, “I think it would be m o r e responsible to stay and Father Lou home study for Guntzelman the test Perspectives and not to go to the movies; yet, I’ve been working hard, maybe I deserve a break or find time to do both.” A judgment is called for. A prudent judgment. Situations crying for a prudent decision seem endless in life: how to break bad news gently; whether to punish a fault or let it go this time; how much to become further involved in a risky or flirtatious relationship; what legislation to vote for in an election that will best promote the common good, etc.? All such matters, great and small, are governed by prudence. We become a prudent and wise person not in making one prudent decision. Prudence is the acquired habit of always, or nearly always, choosing the right means to achieve morally good ends. At times it can be agonizing and demand much of us. Former Yale chaplain

William Sloane Coffin said, “The first of the four cardinal virtues of the Roman Catholic Church is ‘prudentia,’ which basically means damn good thinking. Christ came to take away our sins, not our minds.” Yes, prudence takes damn good thinking – not merely egotistically deciding what fits my agenda. If we develop prudence, it usually comes from the widest possible observation and experience of human behavior, understanding what constitutes psychological health, and a conscientious awareness of the general moral principles with which God has imbued mankind. Prudence has little correlation with book learning. Some people seem to develop it more readily, some otherwise intelligent persons appear slow to catch on, and geniuses may be totally deficient. Making prudent choices is often laborious, yet the complexities of life make it ever more necessary. Thomas Aquinas claimed that the central moral virtue was prudence. While love is the underlying motive for moral action, the essence of moral judgment itself is the astute and wise judgment we exercise by sifting through all the alternatives presented

by the concrete world. And since the alternatives are often so complex, wise judgment is itself a skill and constitutes the virtue called prudence. So, if you hear some

If, in your absence, some friends of yours said you were one of the most prudent people they knew – would you feel complimented or criticized? Prudence sounds a lot like “prude,” doesn’t it? So, are you offended? What is prudence, and what does it mean to be prudent? Prudence is the first of four virtues traditionally named as the most important in the ethical order. As far back as Plato and Aristotle the virtues of prudence, justice, fortitude and temperance have been praised. In “A Concise Dictionary of Theology,” Gerald Collins S. J. says that prudence “entails the capacity to translate general norms and ideals into practice.” A Christian prudence is more than a mere shrewdness to win your case or avoid harsh consequences. It’s more similar to an innate common sense. Prudence is the intellectual ability to choose the right means toward a worthy end. You know how often we struggle with puzzling questions of how to spend our money, where to direct our time, how to handle the competing demands of our lives, how to settle differences, etc. A student may wrestle




A local woman says she now regrets ever responding to an ad for air duct cleaning. Although the price in the ad sounded good, she says she had no idea what she was getting herself into. What happened to her should be a cautionary tale for everyone. Nicole Smith of Fort Thomas says she now realizes she should have double-checked before agreeing to more and more duct cleaning after responding to an ad. “It said they would clean 14 vents and one return for $49.95. I was like, ‘They’re not that dirty, just kind of sweep it through and get it out of there,’ ” she said. Smith said when the serviceman arrived things were different. “He even refused to clean the ducts because he said they had to have something done. He wouldn’t do it, he said he had to treat it first,” she said. Smith ended up agreeing to a host of things. “It was treatment for a sanitizer to control germs, bacteria and feces, and a product to control mold, mildew and fungus,” she said. That, plus a whole lot more, came to $1,000. After the serviceman left, friends and other companies she contacted all raised questions about the air duct cleaning – including whether she really had mold as the serviceman

claimed. So, she called and requested a refund, but it was denied. “They s a i d Howard Ain b e c a u s e Hey Howard! they had already done the treatment they put it through,” said Smith. I showed Smith the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommendation about duct cleaning. It said duct cleaning has never been shown to actually prevent health problems. “I really wish I would have read this beforehand,” Smith told me. The EPA said much of the dirt and dust in air ducts simply adheres to the duct surfaces and does not necessarily enter the living space. So, it said, cleaning should be considered for only severe cases of mold, dust and debris. The EPA also said, “Pollutants that enter the home both from outdoors and indoor activities such as cooking, cleaning, smoking or just moving around can cause greater exposure to contaminants than dirty air ducts.” I contacted the company Smith had hired, explained how it failed to give her three days in which to cancel, as required by law, and the company has now given Smith all her money back.

An easy beef stir fry, a colorful Jell-O dessert Whenever I’m out and about, someone will come up and mention the column. It keeps me aware of what you want. A few weeks ago I got an unusual request for easy, healthy meals. Now that part of the request is not unusual, but the fellow who asked is a bit unusual in that he has some ties to a pretty important “person.”

Father Rob Waller, pastor at St. Andrew’s in Milford, needed healthier recipes “a bachelor like me could make.” I sent him some and I’m thinking that my little favor might result in Father Rob putting in a good word for me with the “right people.” If you have easy recipes for folks like Father Rob, please share.

Rita’s easy stir-fry beef with green onions and tomatoes

1 tablespoon cornstarch 4 tomatoes cut into wedges (if they’re big, use 2) 1 bunch green onions, sliced thin Canola or peanut oil Hot cooked rice More soy if desired

1 pound or less flank steak, thinly sliced across grain 1 ⁄4 cup or more to taste, soy sauce

Combine beef, soy and cornstarch. Marinate anywhere from five minutes to a day. Film bottom of large skillet with oil. Stir fry beef in batches, adding oil as needed. Place back into skillet and add tomatoes and onions. Cook until hot. Add more soy if desired. Serve over rice.

If you want, add a handful of snow peas or bean sprouts with tomatoes and onions.

Funny how far a friendship can take you. Dick Herrick, a Mason reader, and I have been friends since we met at Alvey Ferguson, a conveyor company in Oakley, eons ago. I was a bilingual secretary and Dick was an interning college student. Dick’s former neighbors, the Papenhauses, have been close friends of his family for many years. That friendship and this column led Velma to me with her favorite Jell-O recipe . “Red on bottom, white in middle and green on top. Very colorful for holidays,” she said. I think Velma should invite Dick and me over to enjoy a big plateful! Velma uses a Pyrex dish, about 11-by-8.

Second layer:

Mix Jell-O, cream cheese and juice/water until Jell-O dissolves and cream cheese is smooth. Put in refrigerator to gel just enough so nuts can be mixed in easily. Pour onto first layer. Let gel before pouring on layer No. 3.

Third layer:

Spend Less To Impress This Holiday Season




For years now, 23 to be exact, the Wyoming Junior Women’s Club has held the luminary event “Light-Up” during the holidays. This event is a classic that is just one of the many things that makes living in Wyoming distinctive. Once again, Chris Beresford of the Re/Max Preferred group are title sponsor. This year’s Light Up Chairs are Sue Lewis and Frances Mennone. The theme this year is to “Light up the Valley,” as in Valley Interfaith Food and Clothing Center, the primary beneficiary this year. Due to current economic times demands on Valley’s services are high. While the contribution from their sponsoring faith communities exceeded their expectations by 9.8 percent, individual donations fell by 21 percent and organizational donations fell a staggering 41 percent. The center, like many Cincinnati charities, is fighting to continue their missions while wrestling with major drops in revenue. The paper bag luminaries are sold to households and business throughout the city. On a designated evening in December while all the homes are already decked out in their holiday glory, the light-up kits are lit from the village to the hill. The luminaries line the sidewalks lighting up the city with a warm holiday glow. Meanwhile, horse drawn carriages escorts, citizens throughout the bright evening while the recreation department serves warm treats at the civic center.
