BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Snowflakes bring salt trucks in the first snow of 2017 Jennie Key jkey@communitypress.com

Mother Nature made the first snow of 2017 a light one, easing local road departments back in to the business of salting and clearing streets. By afternoon, many communities, including Hamilton County, were under a level one snow emergency, which means many school districts were closed Jan. 5, and across the West Side, public works directors said it was a good snow event for reentry to the snow treatment and removal season.

Delhi Township Delhi Township public works director Ron Ripperger says the Jan. 5 snow event was pretty easy to handle, and he hopes the remainder of the winter follows that pattern. Salt trucks were out by 4:30 a.m. in Delhi Township, Ripperger said. It takes about teo and a half hours to clear the township’s 54 miles of streets if applying salt, about five and a half hours if plows are required. Ripperger said most primary roads in Delhi are maintained by Hamilton County. A rule of thumb is if the road has a speed limit of 35 or has the word ‘Road’ in the name, it is

likely not a township street. There is a list of county-maintained roads on the township website at www.delhi.oh.us. Some of the streets in the newer subdivisions have not yet been dedicated as Delhi Township roads and cannot be treated by the township. A list of undedicated streets is also available on the township website.

Green Township Green Township public services director Joe Lambing says snow removal in his community went off without a hitch. He says his crew put out road salt without additives. “We stuck with that and it worked fine,” he said. Green Township has about 110 road miles to treat, and Lambing says he has 12 routes being cleared. “With a snow like this morning’s, we can clear the whole township in about two hours. If we have to plow, it obviously takes longer. And traffic can also affect our time. We get stuck in it, just like everyone else.” The township has two salt storage locations: a dome on Harrison Avenue and a barn on

Oak Hills keeping, expanding Spanish immersion program

Christina Cooper’s second-grade Spanish immersion class poses for a photo on the first day of school. Oak Hills voted to keep and expand the district’s Spanish immersion program.

Despite unknown costs and possible obstacles, Oak Hills is giving more students the chance to become bilingual adults. The Oak Hills Local School District Board of Education approved implementing the Spanish immersion program at all five of the elementary schools by a vote of 3-2. Board members Scott Bischoff, Julie Murphy and Paul Cooper voted for it while Jeannie Schoonover and Jan Hunter voted against it. “There are some risks, it is not completely risk free. There are obstacles that we need to work together to overcome, but we have to see the vision of what it could look like down the road. I see bilingual students, who become bilingual adults, who become bilingual professionals,” Bischoff said. The program started three years ago and teaches students in the program at C.O. Harrison, J.F. Dulles and Oakdale Elementary schools math and science in Spanish. With the board’s vote, the program will expand into Delshire and Springmyer elementary schools within five years. Assistant Superintendent Tim Cybulski said a Spanish immersion elective course will be added at all three of the middle schools

and different or additional Spanish electives will be created for Oak Hills High School. “I just think there are too many unanswered questions about our ability to recruit and maintain quality bilingual teachers. There are too many unknowns on our present staff,” Hunter said. Cybulski said when the program is fully expanded there will need to be six to 12 teachers for the programs at Delshire and Springmeyer. Cybulski said he estimated the best-case and worst-case scenarios for the costs of the program. Staffing costs could be $0 to $1.26 million, aide costs could be $90,000 to $150,000 and recruiting cost is estimated at $20,000. “There have been minimal costs to the district in terms of staffing so far. The $1.26 million is the worst case, if we have to hire three to six new teachers at all the buildings. We were charged with sharing the best to the worst-case scenarios,” Cybulski said. Schoonover and Hunter both expressed concern about the cost of the program, not being able to find qualified teachers and the program not being equitable. “There are a group of parents that are

very passionate about this program, but they represent a very small percentage of the parents in this district. The Spanish immersion parents only represent about 3 to 4 percent of the parents. So equity within in this program is a big issue for me,” Hunter said. “There are very few things in the district that

are equal for all students. Equability just means it has to be fair,” Bischoff said. Murphy added that Rapid Run Middle School is the only middle school that teaches Mandarin Chinese. Murphy said despite there being unknowns with the program, it has been successful based on the number of students looking to get in and the reaction from parents. “The pilot is successful.

Blue Rock Road. Lambing says the township should have plenty of salt to get through the rest of the winter. Residents can help salt truck drivers by watching for them on the road, and allowing them the space required to do their jobs.

Springfield Township Turns out, vodka is good for more than Bloody Marys. In Springfield Township, it can also help clear streets of snow and ice. The township is mixing it up this year and using a by-product of the vodka distillation process to punch up its road salt applications. It got a realworld test in the township Jan. 5. The new de-icing treatment solution is called Ice B’Gone Magic Liquid and it’s made from a blend of magnesium chloride combined with the vodka byproducts. Springfield Township public works director Michael Gould says the additive is sprayed onto regular rock salt, transforming it into IBG Magic Solid, a highly effective ice-melting product. IBG Magic Solid is safe to use on concrete, is non-corrosive, does not harm curbside grassed areas, or plants, and continues to melt ice to more than 35 degrees below zero. Gould says the new system got rave reviews. The first snow event of the season was a little tricky, because the temperature hovered in the low 20s. The township has two snow removal protocols and 20 degrees is the

dividing line. When temperatures are above 20 degrees, the township adds a salt brine mixture to help road salt stick to the pavement better and activate on contact. It is mixed with the salt inside the auger of the truck to an oatmeal-like consistency before it’s spread onto the road. The strategy is to keep road salt from hitting the pavement and simply rolling into the grass, which happens to about 30 percent of the salt spread using traditional methods. The residual salt may remain on the road that will immediately begin working with the next storm. The prewetting with brine stretches the salt supply. If it’s colder, a different solution is needed. In the past, calcium chloride was the only treatment, which caused harm to plants and increased the corrosion rate for roads and sidewalks. So the township made a change to the IBG solution. Gould says using the brine or the IBG solution

intention that our district becomes a Spanish immersion district. We are fortunate to be a district of size and can offer quite a few magnet programs so we can serve all students in the district.

means roads are safer sooner. Both help conserve salt. “We probably used about 20-25 percent less salt than we would have without the Ice B’Gone,” he said.

Colerain Township It’s not Colerain Township public services director Tom Bosarge’s first snow-deo. He took over the helm of the department where he has worked for 10 years in November. Comfortable behind his desk or the wheel of a salt truck, he drove a route Jan. 5 for the first snow of 2017. “I’m looking to give that up,” he said. Running the department keeps him plenty busy. Bosarge said 2017’s first snow was easy to handle, with trucks out by 5:30 a.m. and roads were treated with no problems. Trucks were reloaded and ready to make another round of the routes if necessary later in the day. Bosarge said the township bought 4,000 tons of salt for the 2016-2017 winter season, so the salt dome is filled with 5.5 thousand tons of salt. The township has nine routes covering more than 110 miles of township streets. The township isn’t responsible for Colerain or Hamilton avenues, which are state routes, or roads such as Pippin or Compton roads, which are the responsibility of the county. Bosarge did have a request for residents. “We ask residents to avoid parking on the street if at all possible during snow events and not to shovel snow from their driveways onto plowed streets,” he said.

Remke Markets Makes Online Grocery Shopping Convenient Pat Iasillo Over the past decade our world has become more accustomed to shopping online for the products we want. It makes sense not to waste time and effort shopping if we can just as easily click a few buttons to accomplish the same thing. However, there has been some reluctance when it comes to products we like to feel and touch before we buy. We don’t mind purchasing a book online or the latest toy, but some of us like to try on a pair a shoes before we buy them or like to feel the material on an article of clothing. The same thing is even more true when it comes to shopping for food. We want to be

in control when we pick our apples or our lettuce, or a beef roast. Therefore, shopping online for our groceries has met with some resistance. It can also be painful to sort through over 30,000 products to find what we want. That is all changing. Remke Markets has carefully thought through these issues before we offered an online solution to our customers. After all, we have been in business for almost 120 years, partly because we keep the wants and needs of our customers at the top of the list on our approach to the grocery business. That is why we offer something a little different; a personal shopper. Our personal shoppers

are carefully chosen to be as picky as our pickiest customers when it comes to choosing what to put in the basket. They also are people who are anxious to learn just what you like, how you like it, and if they don’t know, they will call you and ask before they choose. We feel confident you will be pleased that your shopper will far exceed your expectations. Couple a personal shopper with the ease of the Remke Mobile Markets website and you have a means of shopping for your groceries that is second to none. With your registration of your Remke Rewards card on our website, you now have access to the top 100 items you normally purchase at your fingertips. You may also like to shop our weekly ad. Now all you need do is click on an item when viewing our ad and presto, it

is on your shopping list. In addition, we have made it simple to shop for anything in our store by using our search bar, or by searching through every department and category. We even have an app available for download on your Apple or Android mobile device, and you can use it to scan the UPC barcodes of the items in your house to add them directly to your list. Once you finish your order, you may choose a pick up time even on the same day! Drive to the store, call or text the phone number on the sign posted in our designated pick up spot, and your order will be brought out and loaded into your car. Scan your credit card and you are on your way. The fee is waived on your first four orders so you have nothing to lose to give Remke Mobile Markets a try!

THANKS TO EMILY BUCKLEY

At the end of each month, 16 Oak Hills High School students (four from each class) who had perfect attendance for the month are randomly selected and receive a prize. For the month of September students had the choice of a gift card from Chick-fil-A or a larger Hersey Chocolate bar as their prize.

If these students exemplify the characteristics for membership in this society during the rest of their lives, they will be leaders of character others will want to follow.” The National Junior Honor Society is an academic honorary society for middle school students which recognizes and promotes scholar-

ship, leadership, service, character and citizenship. During the induction ceremony, four members of the middle school faculty and Summit Chaplain The Rev. Philip Seher lit candles representing each of those attributes and spoke to the assembly of inductees, families and other middle school students who filled the Chapel.

Taylor High School » Taylor High School Spanish teacher David Kohrs has been nominated for a Character Council of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Award. “This is particularly special to us because we are currently in the process of applying to become a nationally recognized school of character,” Lisa Whiteley, director of communication for the dis-

trict, said. Kohrs wears several hats throughout the school year, all of which support students and exemplifies the character Three Rivers hopes to instill in students. In the nomination form, fellow teacher Sue Diemer, said, “as a veteran of the Air Force, David shows, by example, how to be respectful, how to listen, and certainly how to care for each student and each member of the high school staff.” Kohrs uses these qualities to moderate National Honor Society, volunteer in service learning activities, organize the annual Shantytown, help out with various inner-city, nonprofit organizations, and plan a curriculum that continues to push his students to be the very best they can be.

Whitewater Twp. trustee dies after wreck on tractor Ben Goldschmidt bgoldschmidt@enquirer.com

Hubert Brown, a Whitewater Township Trustee, has died following an accident with a car while he was driving his tractor. He was ejected from his tractor Dec. 26, police say, when he was rearended by a Buick sedan driven by Richard Campos, 41, on Ind. 350 in Ripley County, Indiana. Brown died Jan. 2 at University of Cincinnati Medical Center, said his friend, Tammy Simendinger.

At the scene, Campos had a blood-alcohol level of 0.26 percent, more than three times the legal limit, Indiana State Police said. He was not injured in the crash. Brown, 65, known as “Brownie,” was doing the thing he set out to do when he retired: spend more time on his farm, Simendinger said. “I thought about that on his last day, he was spending time on his farm,” she said. “So at least I know he died happy.” Simendinger met Brown when she moved to

Harrison about eight years ago. Being a trustee and a fellow member of

the Democratic party, the two shared a lot of the same interests. He be-

came a mentor to Simendinger – “a father figure,” even, she said. He played that role for a lot of people in the community. Simply put, he enjoyed helping people in any way he could. “He touched so many people’s lives,” Simendinger said. “To me, that is a lasting legacy that so many people would aspire to.” Brown served as trustee for 20 years and ran unsuccessfully for the Ohio Statehouse in 2012, but don’t call him a politician – a public servant, rather, Simendinger said. After Brown ran for the

Statehouse, he encouraged and helped Simendinger run as well, albeit with the same result. “You never heard anyone say anything bad about him,” Simendinger said. Campos is facing charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated while endangering another person, operating a vehicle while intoxicated with a prior conviction and operating a vehicle while causing serious bodily harm.

lons was spilled inside the building and was “fully contained.” “One of the contractors got splashed with the sodium hypochlorite and went to an eye wash station to wash off,” she said. MSD’s Safety Team investigated the incident, Leonard said, wherein both contractors refused medical treatment. Just after 10 a.m., MSD called 911 to have an EMT check them over “to be safe,” Leonard said. “The 911 operator apparently misunderstood the call and sent in the Cincinnati Fire Department’s Hazmat Squad,” she said. Leonard said the EMT signed off for no further treatment to the contractors and both are back to work. No property was damaged during the incident, Leonard said.

‘Glory Days’ appreciated, questioned The feature “Glory Days” article (Dec. 21) recounting Elder’s 1973 basketball state championship title was very much appreciated by all who “lived it” (including me). However, after some reflection the commentary just didn’t sit right with me. That’s because at Elder the concept of “team” is paramount. I’m convinced that those who were in the cheering section will say, “If any Elder player deserves to be featured

in an article about the ’73 state championship team it’s the “sixth man”. So I question, “Why was the “Glory Jim Grawe Days” story COMMUNITY PRESS portrayed as GUEST COLUMNIST the Henry Miller Story?” Don’t get me wrong. I have nothing against Henry. He’s a personal friend of mine. A

family man with a great family. His all-around-nice-guy status alone is front page news-worthy. To showcase his team contribution with a Christmas family portrait is to me a couple of notches past funny. His twin brother, George, the team’s leading scorer, was mentioned as a mere afterthought. George could have at least been photo shopped into the family picture. Now, on a more serious note, was the local-boy-makes-good

story line really necessary? Saying Henry grew up in St. Lawrence Parish but now lives “near St. Antoninus!” Hey Henry, call me crazy but isn’t “Antoninus near” really Covedale?! On the East Side people say, “Hyde Park near” all the time! So why didn’t you say “Covedale near”? Are you afraid you’ll be called an elitist? That people will say you forgot where you came from? It’s all the West Side anyway so what difference does it make

CH@TROOM Jan. 4 question What should be the priorities for President-elect Trump during his first 100 days?

“I believe he will be pretty much unable to set priorities until overcoming the obstacles being thrown in his path as quickly as the outgoing administration can. The efforts to deligitimize everything in his opening decisions will be heralded by the ‘no longer necessary’ press, media blogs and testing by the other world powers. “To start with a $20 trillion debt, repairing damage of the last-minute spitefulness of John Kerry with Israel, and the demand to return to Cold War status with Russia, as proclaimed by Obama, will create a very legitimate possibility of the No. 1 priority to be figuring out how to get out of this job, that he foolishly, but thankfully, sought. So far, his cabinet picks seem to have all been tested in the ‘fires of the unknowns.’ He now must seek counsel. This job is way to ‘Yuuuge’ to go alone or to believe there are easy solutions. I believe in prayer and know we all need to have real hope.” D.B.

“Trump should get his replacement plan for the Affordable Care Act, which he has claimed will be better, through Congress so more Americans have access to affordable medical insurance. “He should end his bromance with Russian President Putin. As a former top level KGB agent, Putin’s beliefs are what the U.S. fought against and continually denounced during the Cold War portion of the Reagan administration. “Finally, he should cancel his Twitter account or have someone monitor his Tweets so they don’t consistently create controversy, anger or panic among the American people.” C.S.

“President Trump (still have a bit of trouble with that, but then again, who thought Reagan would do a more than credible job?) should focus on getting his cabinet right. I don’t believe it is currently, and I fully expect some key ‘You’re fireds’ to hit the news circuits in the coming months. I fervently hope he will eventually get it correctly populated. “Next he must get some sanity around his platforms. Build a wall that Mexico will pay for? Doubtful.

La Salle’s White headed to play at UC Adam Baum abaum@enquirer.com

MONFORT HEIGHTS - The new era of the University of Cincinnati football program received its first local commitment Tuesday when La Salle senior standout Jarell White announced he will play for the Bearcats. White, a Rivals.com four-star recruit and starter on all three of the Lancers’ recent state championship teams, had his decision narrowed down to Cincinnati and Purdue – two schools in the midst of assembling new coaching staffs. The Bearcats announced new head coach Luke Fickell on Dec. 10 and it wasn’t long after when White began to take UC seriously. “It changed a lot,” said White of his decision after UC hired Fickell. “I never considered staying home at all, but when I thought about it ... long nights and over this whole winter time, (Fickell) reaching out and coach (Marcus) Freeman reaching out, it felt comfortable with me. “Both coach Fickell and coach Freeman reached out to me once they got into the office and I felt comfortable with both of them just knowing they were great coaches. I just knew they were gonna be the right people for me for the next four years. “At first I thought it was a joke because UC never recruited me hard, I just got the offer and that was it.” White said being able to further his education in his hometown and being able to play in front of his family were factors, but the interest shown by Fickell and Freeman, a former Huber Heights Wayne and Ohio State standout linebacker who was previously the co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at Purdue, was significant.

“It’s been amazing,” said White. “(Fickell’s) a good guy and I know that he knows what he’s doing when it comes to football and becoming a man ... that’s one of the things we talked about a lot.” White, listed at 5-foot-10, 200 pounds, has been Greater Catholic League-South first team in each of the last three seasons at three different positions (running back, linebacker and defensive back). As a senior, White played both ways, recording 45 tackles, 1.5 sacks and an interception return touchdown as a linebacker. He also led the Lancers in rushing with 413 yards and six touchdowns in the regular season. During his three seasons starting at La Salle, the Lancers went a combined 40-5 with a share of the GCL South title in 2014, and the outright title – the first in school history – this past season. White said early indications are that he’ll be helping the Bearcats on defense. “It will be looking like nickel back and safety and special teams right now – that’s perfect for me.” La Salle coach Jim Hilvert said, “Jarell’s a very versatile football player who’s a winner, comes from a winning program, three state championships. Other people and other kids in the city can gravitate to that and say ‘I had a great career in high school ... why not look at UC?’ Set a legacy at UC and get a great academic career and play football in front of all your friends and family. And I think people in Cincinnati, they’ll be vested to be able to see a guy like that come to Cincinnati and do a lot of great things.” White added that “starting tonight” he’ll begin helping the Bearcats recruit some talent across the state of Ohio to join him at UC. “We’re definitely about to get this thing going on and for the next couple years you’re gonna see us in some bowl games for sure,” he said.

the first game. “He was lined up from the end of the first game,” said Sievers. “He threw three in a row at the end of the first game. I knew he had a great shot at it. At Brentwood Bowl, you have to worry about the pin carry, so the only thing I was worried about was him leaving a solid 10 pin standing. “He threw three really good shots in the 10th frame. The second ball in the 10th was a little heavy but it should have carried and it did. And as soon as he laid down the 12th ball I

knew he had the right spot. All 12 (of his shots) were right there.” Congratulations were quickly in order, even from his GCL South counterparts. “I was getting congratulated by people I didn’t even know,” said Brocker, who was the Panthers’ sixth man in the rotation last year as a junior.

Hunt: West High’s double-double machine Adam Baum abaum@communitypress.com

WESTERN HILLS - Anyone who’s wandered by the Hall of Honor at Western Hills High School and stopped to read the pictured plaques that recognize the Hall of Fame inductees, might have suspected that Jordan Hunt knows her way around a basketball court. Hunt, a 6-foot-2 junior standout for the Mustangs, is the daughter of Tonya Hunt, a 1990 West High graduate and Hall of Fame member who played college basketball at Grambling State. When Tonya was still sporting maroon and cream, she averaged 29.6 points and 18.4 rebounds per

game, according to current West High athletic director Chuck Richardson. Jordan is Jordan Hunt well on her way to following in her mother’s footsteps. As of Jan. 6, Jordan, who’s averaging a double-double with 10.4 points and 11.1 rebounds, leads the Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference in rebounds and blocks (3.5) per game. “In nine games she’s had eight double-doubles already,” said first-year coach David Hardman. “She has skills to get up and down the floor; she can

really move. She can run just like a guard.” Hunt transferred from Walnut Hills after her freshman year. That’s when Hardman, who was a Walnut Hills assistant coach at the time, first noticed her. Her ability to impact the game at both ends of the floor makes Hunt a valuable piece the Mustangs can build around. In West High’s win over Aiken Dec. 13, Hunt was the most dominant player on the floor, posting 18 points, 19 rebounds and six blocks. That ability has already garnered a few calls from college coaches. See HUNT, Page 2B

PRICE HILL - Staring intently at a perfect game, there’s not a lot a bowler can do, other than to breathe, to combat that nervousness. The nerves started for Conner Brocker, an Elder High School senior, after the ninth frame. Nine consecutive strikes in a game were the most he’d ever recorded prior to Jan. 3 at Brentwood Bowl in a Greater Catholic League quad match. “I didn’t really get nervous until after the ninth strike cause that’s the farthest I’ve ever gotten,” said Brocker, who's now the fourth bowler in Elder history to roll 300 in a competition. “When you get to the 10th frame, you realize you only need three more (strikes) to get to 300.” Brocker, 17, said, “I was shaking, I was so nervous.” So the right-hander took a few extra deep breaths and did what came naturally. Elder coach Dave Sievers said, “Anytime you’re going through a situation like that you want to make sure you breathe. Being a bowler myself, you always want to make sure that they’re taking their time and not rushing it, cause your adrenaline is so high when you’re going through something like that. “The great thing was no one stopped talking to him. Almost like a pitcher with a no-hitter; same way in bowling. When you’re going into the ninth and 10th frame, everyone will stop and almost watch. The other teams did back off in the 10th frame which was very respectful and sort of what you do. But our team was still up there talking to him; they weren’t talking about the 300 but they weren’t backing away from being up there with him.” Brocker’s 300 came in the second game of the match. Sievers had an idea he was dialed in based on how he closed out

“Jordan has the potential to be a next-level player,” said Hardman. “She really does. With her, we’re working on her outside game a little more because she’s gonna have to be more than a back-to-the-basket player. She’s on track to be a next-level player. “I’ve gotten some calls from schools. Mostly small schools, but if her outside game improves a little bit she has the chance to be a lower Division I, Division II player.” Even with a gamechanger like Hunt on the floor, the Mustangs have only won three of their first nine games. Hardman said a big reason for the slow start has been a complete renovation of how they play the game. “It’s a complete change,” he said, “we’ve really changed our game.

In the past, it’s sort of been up and down the floor. We’ve sort of adjusted our thinking process and started pounding the ball inside more.” Change regularly requires time and patience, but Hardman feels like they have girls already in the program who can be a part of something great. “We have a pretty strong junior class,” said Hardman. “We have quite a few juniors; we only have two seniors.” Another of those impressive juniors is 5foot-11 Mya Bond, whom Hardman described as “an inside-outside player.” Hardman added Bond is on track to attend Ohio State, “She’s a topnotch kid, but a great athlete too.” And the Mustangs have a crew of freshmen playing junior varsity, gaining valuable experience. Hardman added that one approach the Mustangs have utilized has

ing perfection, Sievers said, “It’s very exhilarating, and the atmosphere just gets turned up with all the time and the work that these guys put into the sport. (Conner) has been bowling for 11 years. I know how long they work

at it; how many hours they put in. Just seeing perfection, nobody can take that away from you.” However, as a team, it wasn’t Elder’s best night. The Panthers finished third out of four teams in the quad match, but still

hold the GCL South lead as of press time, said Sievers. “Except for Conner, we were off,” Sievers said. “We’re the No. 1 team in the city and we’re fighting for a GCL championship and we’re not bowling the

way we’re capable except for one guy. “I was hoping I could be talking about an undefeated GCL season along with the perfection of Conner. But we’re still in first place, so our goal is still there.”

nothing to do with basketball on the surface. “We’ve partnering with a group out of Orlando, Florida, known as ‘Life Game’ — it’s about bringing life skills and handling themselves as people as well as being athletes on the floor. We’ve been working with them over the last three or four months about just instilling life skills and how they can carry that over onto the floor. It’s been huge; it’s not about wins and losses, it’s about getting better.” So far, Hardman said, it’s paid off in the classroom as the Mustangs currently carry a combined 3.1-grade point average throughout the entire program. The Mustangs have a treacherous stretch of road games at Shroder Jan. 9, Finneytown Jan. 11, Taylor Jan. 12, Gamble Montessori Jan. 13 and Hughes Jan. 17. West High is back at home on Jan. 19 against Ross.

The DePaul Cristo Rey Bruins gather for a pregame huddle, including senior Rameko Rumph, junior KyTrell Simpson, senior Zach Jones, sophomore Deshaun Little, junior Michael Williams and senior Cameron Mulligan.

DePaul Cristo Rey hoops off to historic start Adam Turer Enquirer contributor

For a program as young as DePaul Cristo Rey’s, it’s not a surprise to see records being broken. The Bruins are off to historic start to the 201617 season. Never before had the Bruins been five games above .500 at any point in a season. DePaul Cristo Rey had never before won six of its first seven games. The Bruins had never beaten Miami Valley Christian Academy or New Miami. DePaul Cristo Rey entered the holiday break at 6-1, tied for first place atop the Ohio Valley Christian Conference. This is a season of many firsts for the program. Randy Cornelius, formerly an assistant, is now the varsity head coach. The Bruins are playing in the newly formed OVCC for the first time. The team’s home gym has been dubbed the Bruin Cave, and it has been rocking early this season. “It’s not just the students, teachers, and administrators,” said Cornelius. “Former players coming back are excited about the start. The whole school and community is excited.” Two years ago, the Bruins made a run to the semifinals of the Ohio Christian School Athletic Association state tournament. That energized the program, but the games themselves were a disap-

pointment. This year’s team is determined to return to the state final four and avenge those losses. “We still have a few of those kids who had that experience. It helped a lot, going through that,” said Cornelius. “Even though we went up there, we didn’t do very well. Our kids feel like we have to get back and do a lot better.” This year’s squad is a blend of players who contributed to that run, plus transfers who have arrived since and a group of DePaul Cristo Rey seniors who decided to try out for the team this year. Junior Delando Little leads the team and conference with 18.5 points per game. Three seniors who did not play last year came out for the team this year. One played as a freshman, but the other two did not try out until this year. The team’s chemistry has been one of its best assets this year. “We go 12 strong. All 12 play in just about every game,” said Cornelius. “The biggest thing is that our mixture of kids is meshing. Kids from the final four team, transfers, and newcomers. All three groups have meshed. The biggest thing we worried about in the beginning was how would they mesh. So far, it’s been great.” Just like the players, the coaching staff has meshed, too. Cornelius still relies on his cousin, Gary Makin, the junior

varsity head coach. He added Jeff Birkofer to his staff this year. The players bought into the coaches’ system in the summer and the results have been immediate. “I have been coaching at the school since 2012. The talent level, unselfishness, and willingness to learn is at a level I have not seen before,” said Makin. “The competitiveness in practices has taken the team to a new level. The Bruins are now a family and that makes them that much stronger.” The tallest player is 6-2 senior captain Cam Mulligan, a four-year varsity starter. He leads the team with 7.8 rebounds per game. The Bruins make up for their lack of team height with relentless defense that is bolstered by the team’s athleticism and depth. If they’re not playing intense man-to-man, they are in a trapping zone that often flummoxes opponents. “Defense has been the biggest improvement. We’re always moving,” said Cornelius. “We have a lot of kids who can score, but all 12 are playing very good defense. If you don’t play defense in our system, you don’t play.” The Bruins are hoping that their defense and camaraderie will continue to carry the program to new heights. They want to bring the OCSAA state title to the school on Clifton Hills Avenue.

15 years of hope delivering more than $1 million in aid The Aubrey Rose Foundation has been helping struggling families all over Greater Cincinnati and the US since 2001. Their mission is, and always has been, to help families that are caring for medically-fragile children suffering from lifethreatening illnesses, while maintaining a focus on family unity. The Aubrey Rose Foundation gives families a means to lift the weight of life’s complexities during their difficult time by providing emotional and financial support. The 100 percent volunteer driven non-profit organization was founded in memory of Aubrey Rose Hollenkamp who passed away suddenly in 2000, just before her third birthday. Aubrey’s parents, Jerry and Nancy Hollenkamp, started the foundation in Aubrey’s honor and to carry on her spirit. “Aubrey was always a very happy baby, throughout everything she endured, and she smiled continuously. She brought a great light into the world…we wanted to pass that light along.” Jerry Hollenkamp, Aubrey Rose Foundation founder On Nov. 11, the Aubrey Rose Foundation celebrated 15 years of giving back during their 15th Annual “Let’s Dance for the Heart of It!” An Evening in Paris celebration at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza. More than 500 Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentuckians joined the foundation’s board and volunteers to
