FALHABER A Family Tradition Since 1980


Bob Schloss said the old pastor’s home at Oak Hills United Methodist Church was sitting vacant, so he and a group of volunteers decided to turn it into a place that could be used to serve the community. They transformed the empty home at the corner of Bridgetown and Ebenezer roads into a new neighborhood pantry offering free articles of clothing and minor household goods to those in need. “It feels right,” said Schloss, a Green Township resident and longtime member of the church. “People call churches almost every day looking for a little extra help, and this is one way we can reach out to them.” Although the pantry is a new venture for the church, he said the foundation for it was actually laid a few years ago when a congregation member’s home burned to the ground. He said church members immediately realized the family would likely need clothes, so they came together and started donating all types of clothing. Before long, bags upon bags of clothes filled the church, Schloss said. “The donations just kept coming and coming,” he said. With more clothes than they knew what to do with and a vacant home right on the church property, he said it simply made sense to establish a

Subsequent meetings will each focus the township’s four main corridors – Bridgetown Road, North Bend/Cheviot Road, Harrison Avenue and Glenway Avenue – as well as all the remaining areas not within the main corridors, he said. Each meeting will include a review of the existing land use plan map and text, review of new development in the corridor and discussions of the Hamilton County Regional Planning Commission’s recommendations for map and text changes.

Schloss said they are working to get more volunteers to help with the effort so they can be open one or two Saturdays each month as well. He said the pantry is open to anyone who needs it, and the confidentiality of everyone the pantry serves will be protected. “We welcome anyone,” he said. “Folks can come in and get a couple bags of clothes and a bag of food, whatever they need.”

Three Rivers mulls new building plan By Kurt Backscheider


Residents of the Three Rivers Local School District gathered at Faith Fellowship Church to gather information and give their input on the district’s proposal to build a new school facility in Cleves. cost of a new school because Three Rivers was accepted into Ohio’s Extreme Environmental Contamination Program after dangerous emissions from Lanxess Corp. forced the closure of Meredith Hitchens Elementary School in Addyston in 2005. John Webb, a member of the land search committee, said based on the 50 percent share from the state and low construction costs and low interest rates in this down economy, the option to build a new pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade school now is the best deal for Three Rivers. “This is actually going to turn out to be a very eco-

nomical opportunity for the community,” Webb said. “All in all, this is the least expensive option and offers the most benefits to the community.” He said the state will provide Three Rivers no funding to renovate or upgrade its existing schools because the state has classified the buildings as nonsalvageable. He said a new energy-efficient facility would reduce the district’s operating expenses by 15 percent. Bohannon said the district will have to pass a bond issue to pay for the other half of the cost to build a new school. If the district decides to move for-

Three Rivers Local School District officials are reviewing feedback from the community as they determine whether to move forward with a proposal to build a new school facility. About 150 district residents attended a community meeting the district hosted Tuesday, Jan. 5, to outline and gather input on a recommendation the school board approved in December to build a new prekindergarten through 12thgrade school on 62 acres at Cooper Road and North Miami Avenue in Cleves. The district’s land search committee, a group of community volunteers with various backgrounds in architecture, construction, real estate and engineering, began meeting in September and made the recommendation to consolidate all the district’s grade levels into one new school after evaluating several options for the future of the district. “The recommendation was made after extensive study and cost comparisons by the committee,” said Three Rivers Superintendent Rhonda Bohannon. She said the Ohio School Facilities Commission will pay for 50 percent of the

ward with the option to build a new pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade school, it would cost the community roughly $37.1 million, meaning the district would need to pass a 4.99mill bond issue. She said the 4.99-mill, 37-year bond levy includes 0.5 mills the state requires for building maintenance. The levy would cost the owner of a home with a market value of $100,000 about $153 per year in taxes. District resident Bill Jones said he would support a bond issue to construct a new school because the proposal is well thought out, and it seems the board has reviewed all the alternatives and is utilizing state funding to best meet the needs of the district. “To me the most appealing thing overall is that the district’s facilities would be greatly improved,” Jones said. “This district is in desperate need of facilities.” School board member Al Bayes said the board wants a clear understanding of what the community wants before making a decision on whether to place a bond issue on the May ballot. He said if the board decides on a bond issue then, the deadline is midFebruary.

Miami Twp. has new fire new chief

NAACP: Hospital closings hurt poor Gannett News Service

By Jennie Key

Miami Township has a new fire chief. And it’s a familiar face. On Jan. 5, Stephen Ober, who has served the Miami Township Fire Department as deputy chief, was sworn in as the new chief. Ober, who has spent his entire fire career with Miami Township, started as a volunteer when he was 18 years old. He worked at Blazer’s Union 76, right next to the fire station, and used to watch the volunteers respond to the station before heading out on runs.

Ober Hughes “I was always passionate about helping other people” the 47-year-old Ober said. “As a Boy Scout and as a student at Elder, I was always interested in serving other people.” He became a volunteer with the department in 1981. “We have come a long way since then,” he said.

He said he looks forward to continuing the service to the community and the cooperation among the western Hamilton County fire chiefs. “There is mutual aid, but there is also mutual respect,” he said. “We are more than colleagues, we’re friends.” Miami Township isn’t losing the expertise of former chief, Jim Hughes, either. He will serve as deputy chief. He says he’s ready to take things a little easier. “I still plan to make runs and I will be around,” the 65-year-old Hughes said. “But it was time. I need less stress, and the department is in a good place.” Hughes will be helping with the construction of a new fire station and community center on Shady Lane. Hughes started with the

department as a volunteer in 1959 and became chief in 1994. He is proud of the changes in the department on his watch, pointing to the transition to a part-paid department, the addition of advance life support and paramedic services, and the project that will build the new fire station. He says he is grateful for the support the community has shown the department during his years as chief, and he plans to stay on and help make the transition smooth. Miami Township trustee Paul Beck says he’s pleased to have Ober as chief. “Steve’s been with us for close to 30 years and he’s done a superb job,” he said. “He and Jim have worked well together in the past and this seems to be a win-win situation. Steve has experience with our department, he knows the community and the residents, he lives here, and he is totally committed to Miami Township. I expect a smooth transition.”

Mercy Health Partners’ plans to close hospitals in Mount Airy and Westwood and replace them with a new Green Township hospital will weaken safety net services to low-income patients, the Cincinnati NAACP charged last week. Mercy will stop offering inpatient care at those two existing hospitals when it opens the new hospital by early 2014 along North Bend Road near Interstate 74. It has said it will maintain services in those neighborhoods, although maybe not in the current hospital buildings. “What is currently unfolding before our eyes is Mercy Health System’s urban divestment strategy, weakening safety net services to the poor,” wrote local NAACP President Christopher Smitherman to Mercy officials. “The NAACP does not support weakening safety net health care services to the poor, nor should you.” Mercy responds that the Green Township hospital is less than five miles from the current locations and contends that the consolidation will actually add services, such as more advanced cardiac and cancer care. “I can assure you that our commitment to the west side of Cincinnati won’t end when the new hospital begins,” Mercy Chief Medical Officer Leonard Randolph told a Cincinnati City Council committee in November. “In fact, we see it as the beginning of a new commitment because we will be expanding our capabilities and services beyond what we offer today at our west side hospitals.” The controversy is only the latest roiling local hospital owners that could impact hospital care for the region’s

poorest and most vulnerable patients. The impending breakup of the Health Alliance of Greater Cincinnati has left some Cincinnati leaders fearful that University Hospital will be left isolated and unable to fulfill its safety net care mission. Mercy’s $180 million purchase of Jewish Hospital, scheduled to be complete by March 1, probably will seal the Health Alliance’s demise. Smitherman doesn’t have a specific plan to stop either the closings in Mount Airy and Westwood, or Mercy’s purchase of Jewish Hospital. But he said nonprofit hospitals shouldn’t be hurting the public interests with a strategy he called “suburbanization.” “My concern is the nonprofit organizations say, ‘We’re broke,’” he said. “Yet they have a favorable tax status and they’re buying other hospitals for $180 million. That doesn’t sound like they’re broke. Mercy has made no real commitment, in my opinion, to Cincinnati.” In addition to the two hospitals in Cincinnati, Mercy operates locations in Batavia, Anderson Township and Fairfield. Mercy has provided $91 million in local community benefit in the last two years, including the unpaid cost of Medicaid and patients unable to pay anything, Randolph said. The company says it helps support programs such as the Crossroads Health Clinic in Over-the-Rhine, and operates its own Mercy Franciscan at St. John in the same neighborhood, serving up to 20,000 individuals and families a year. And its parent company, Catholic Healthcare Partners, employs more than 200 workers at its main offices on the fringes of downtown.

During the week of Oct. 26, the St. Teresa went red by celebrating Red Ribbon Week. Red Ribbon Week, the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country, serves as a way for communities and individuals to take a stand against drugs through education and drug prevention. Each day, students and staff showed their commitment to fighting drug abuse in a different way. Students could be seen in camouflage clothes to symbolize the fight against drugs, wearing blue jeans to demonstrate their “jean-ius” for resisting drugs and, on Oct. 30, they pulled on their Halloween costumes as they said “boo” to drugs. Students also participated in trivia contests and were entered into prize drawings for wearing red ribbons throughout the week. Teacher Lauren Hope for organizing the weeklong festivities.

New one-day miracle GIGANTIC CLEARANCE SALE! for denture sufferers SAVE $15000 TO $1,50000


MDIs, which measure 1.8 millimeters in diameter, are basically smaller versions of traditional implants that can be placed without the surgical opening of the gums. “If you can handle visiting your dentist in the morning, having the MDI system placed in less that two hours and then going out and enjoying lunch at your favorite restaurant while you eat comfortably, talk and smile with confidence, then you’re ready for this process,” says Dr. Omeltschenko. “It’s that easy. With MDIs your denture feels secure and is held firmly in place. At about a third of the price of traditional implants, they’re extremely affordable, too,” he adds. If your dentures are not firmly placed and you would like to experience the convenience that this technology can offer, call the office of Dr. Christopher Omeltschenko today at (513) 245-2200 for a free, no-obligation consultation (a $150 value).

Lady Scots No. 1 seed in city By Tony Meale

In the ninth game of the regular season, the Oak Hills High School girls’ basketball team has reached a defining moment. Winners of seven straight, the Lady Scots (72, 5-1) catapulted to the No. 1 ranking in the city before losing 46-44 at home to Greater Miami Conference rival Colerain. “I thought we had some serious letdowns mentally and a lack of effort in the second quarter; that was the only quarter we lost,” head coach Andy Marx said. “But the biggest thing I told (our players) is we need to make this a defining moment. Are you going to learn from this experience and get better, or are you going to pout about it?” Facing a similar predicament after the first game of the year, Oak Hills decided pouting wasn’t a solution. After falling 52-47 to McAuley in the seasonopener on Nov. 28, the Lady Scots won seven straight games. “Losing to McAuley kind of helped us,” Marx said. “We played in that game

Oak Hills High School senior forward Amanda Baute, right, scores in transition against Colerain sophomore point guard Abby Feuchter during a GMC showdown between two of the premier teams in the city. Sixth-ranked Colerain upset Oak Hills, which entered the game ranked No. 1, 46-44 on Jan. 6. Baute had 14 points and nine rebounds in the loss.

Other girls’ hoops happenings • Mother of Mercy High School senior center Chelsea Meckstroth had game-highs of 15 points and 16 rebounds in a 43-36 home win over McNicholas on Jan. 2. Freshman guard Kelly Wiegman had six points and six steals for the Bobcats (5-6, 2-1), while junior forward Allie Hart added nine points and three rebounds. Meckstroth leads the Girls’ Greater Cincinnati League Scarlet division in rebounding (10.0 boards per game) and field-goal percentage (53.4 percent). • Seton High School has been led by senior guard Elyse Brown, who is among the top scorers in the GGCL-Scarlet. The Saints (3-7, 0-3) had a home game against Anderson on Jan.

7 canceled due to snow and are slated to play at Mount Healthy Jan. 11. • Taylor High School sophomore guard Liz Mooney scored a team-high eight points in a 40-35 loss against North College Hill Jan. 6. The Yellow Jackets have been led by senior forward Allyson Rountree, who is averaging 109 points and 10.9 rebounds her game. She is the leading rebounder in the Cincinnati Hills League. • Western Hills High School opened the year with five consecutive victories before losing four straight. The Mustangs have been led by seniors Asia Dillingham and Allyndra Dillingham, both of whom are averaging around 10 points per game.

very selfishly at times and had some people misunderstand their roles. But we had a week to prepare for the Sycamore game, and we had some real physical practices. That was almost like a little mini-camp.” Oak Hills beat Sycamore 49-44 on Dec. 5 and won its next six games by an average of more than 12 points per game. Leading the Lady Scots has been senior forward Amanda Baute, who has been dominant in the paint this season. Baute, who signed with Tiffin University, leads the Greater Miami Conference in scoring and field-goal percentage. She is averaging 18.4 points per game and is hitting shots at a 61.5 percent clip. “Her role has been to be

our scorer,” Marx said. “She does a nice job finishing around the basket, but she’s also a good passer. Our offense runs through her.” Baute is also fourth in the GMC in rebounding and third in steals with 6.9 boards and 3.3 swipes per game. Leading Oak Hills from the perimeter, meanwhile, is junior guard Danni Scholl, who is eighth in the GMC in scoring at 11.3 points per game. She is shooting 89 percent from the foul line and 45 percent from threepoint range. “Danni does a fantastic job shooting the basketball,” Marx said. “The biggest change this year is she’s been more selective with her shots.” A trio of senior guards – Brittany Braun, Brittany

Siegel and Bizz Paff – has also provided experience and consistency; each is averaging between five and seven points per game, and Marx credited their unselfishness and decisionmaking ability. “We’ve been very efficient and very selective with our shots,” he said. The Lady Scots have already defeated several conference rivals – including Lakota West, Lakota East, Hamilton and Mason – and are currently third in the GMC behind Colerain (8-2, 5-1) and Sycamore (8-1, 6-1). “Colerain, I think, is the most talented team in the city, and we have the ability to play with them,” Marx said. That is, Marx said, if his team improves on the glass, particularly on the defensive end. Oak Hills played at Princeton (8-2, 2-2) Jan. 16. After that, the Lady Scots – which have then have consecutive home games against Mercy, Fairfield, Sycamore, Lakota West, Lakota East, Hamilton and Winton Woods – don’t play on the road again until Feb. 11, when they travel to St. Ursula. By then, Marx will know how they’ve handled what is currently a defining moment in their season.

Senior leadership propels Seton bowling By Mark Chalifoux

The Seton High School bowling team is consistently around the top of the Girls Greater Cincinnati League and 2009-2010 is no different as the Saints are tied for first in the conference and started the season 7-1. “This team is as talented as any we’ve had, including the teams that have gone to state,” head coach James Robb said. “I’ve had really talented teams before, though, that haven’t made it to state. It just depends on how things go on that one day. Anything can happen.” Robb has to feel more confident about Seton’s postseason chances given that his team is composed of five seniors and a junior. That experience helps the team focus in big games. “They don’t get rattled if they are behind,” Robb said. “They don’t worry about what other teams are doing. They stay focused on their own games.”


The seniors of the Seton bowling team include Nicole Kettler, Amy Brauch, Courtney Smith, Maggie Welch and Pamela Kettler. The seniors are very close and team camaraderie has helped make the Saints one of the top teams in the city. Robb has so much senior leadership that he didn’t even have to pick a captain this season. “I think they key for us has been that we’re all friends and everyone holds their own,” senior Maggie Welch said. Senior Pam Kettler echoed those sentiments. “We’ve been bowling together for three years and we’re really good friends,”

she said. “That’s important, because if you don’t like each other, you can’t bowl together.” Robb said he’s noticed the strong team chemistry and said it’s resulted in a lot less drama for him to deal with as the girls get along well. Even when they don’t, the problems don’t become big enough to get him involved. “The team chemistry is

really good and we’re able to communicate when we do have problems,” Nicole Kettler said. Senior Amy Brauch said having a team with five seniors has made them more confident. “Whenever one person is down, we pick her up,” she said. “This team has a lot of great spirit and we’re always positive.” Of course, it helps that the team has a lot of talent as well. “It’s such a deep team,” Robb said. “Everyone has a bad game, but we have someone else to turn to when that happens.” Pam and Nicole Kettler lead the team and the conference in average, as both average a 193. Welch averages a 164, Brauch averages a 163 and standout junior Alyssa Merz averages a 162. Senior Courtney Smith averages a 159. Seton’s only loss was on the road against Mount Notre Dame. The Saints have already defeated the

other teams in the GGCL in a tournament, so the opposition for a league title won’t be unfamiliar. “That’s something we want bad – to be at the top of the league,” Kettler said. Robb said the picture for a league title includes more teams than usual this season. “There’s usually two teams battling it out for the title every year, although who those teams are tend to change,” he said. “This year, we’re in the mix with Mercy, McAuley and Mount Notre Dame. Any of those teams are capable of winning the conference.” And the Saints have bigger goals than just winning the conference. Smith, who was on the varsity and junior varsity teams in 2008-2009, said she was looking forward to playing varsity full-time this year because she knew it would be a special team. “We have the ability to go to state,” she said. “If we bowl like we have been already, we can do it.”

La Salle basketball falls to Moe, 49-47 By Anthony Amorini

By Tony Meale

Yogi Berra, déjà vu philosopher extraordinaire, would be proud. For the second straight year, the St. Xavier High School basketball team won its season-opener over McNicholas, lost three straight games – including a letdown to Moeller in the third game of the season – and entered the National Jesuit Christmas Classic with a 1-3 record. But after losing in the first round of the Classic last season, the Bombers bucked Berra’s balderdash. They bested three teams in three days to win the tournament, which was hosted by Georgetown Prep in Washington, D.C., Dec. 28-30. St. X defeated Miami Belen Jesuit 46-44 in the final on a last-second field goal by senior guard Alex Longi, who finished with five points. It was his only basket of the game. St. X defeated Jesuit New Orleans 48-41 in the opening round before besting Baltimore Loyola Blakefield 54-18 in the semifinal. The Bombers led 13-0 after the first quarter and held Blakefield to 14.3 percent shooting from the field. Senior forward Luke Massa, who averaged 16 points, five rebounds and 2.3 steals per game during the Classic, was named tournament MVP. The Bombers’ bid for four consecutive victories, however, was denied by Greater Catholic League rival Roger Bacon. The Spartans overcame a seven-

point deficit late in the fourth quarter thanks to six quick points by junior guard Paul Byrd, who drilled the game-winning three with less than a minute to play. Longi played well for the Bombers, scoring a seasonhigh 22 points to go with eight boards and two steals. St. X, despite shooting 54 percent from the field and 42 percent from beyond the arc, had trouble from the foul line, converting just six of 20 attempts (30 percent). Aside from Longi (12.9 points per game) and Massa (11.8), who are two of the top five scorers in the GCLSouth, St. X has also received contributions from senior forwards Brandon Polking (6.4 points and 3.1 rebounds, St. Al’s Bridgetown alum) and David Niehaus (5.3 points and 3.0 rebounds), as well as junior guard Will Muething (4.5 points, 1.6 assists and 1.8 steals) and senior guard Ben Holcomb (2.5 points and 1.1 assists). The Bombers, which fell to 4-4 (1-2) with the loss to Roger Bacon, are in the midst of some intriguing GCL streaks. They’ve lost to the Spartans in back-toback years and have come up short against Moeller in eight straight games, including five times by six points or fewer. St. X hasn’t beaten Moeller since a 6453 win on Feb. 17, 2006. Against Elder, meanwhile, the Bombers have won five straight. Elder last defeated St. X on Jan. 12, 2007. The Bombers are slated to host Elder Jan. 8 before road games against Oak Hills and Fenwick Jan. 11 and Jan. 15, respectively.

Lancers make history with win over X For the first time in 24 years, La Salle High School’s varsity wrestling team defeated its Greater Catholic League rivals from St. Xavier during a dual meet earlier this winter. La Salle made history for its program by narrowly besting the Bombers, 3836, during a home meet Saturday, Dec. 12. Lancer winners over St.

Xavier included: Freshman Anthony Milano (103 pounds, pin), Emanual Kimble (112 pounds, 15point technical fall), junior Corey Easton (119 pounds, 6-2 decision), sophomore Max Byrd (125 pounds, pin), freshman Vinnie Camarca (140 pounds, pin), junior Evean Seman (4-0 decision), senior Justin Cole (215 pounds, pin) and jun-

ior Jacob McBee (heavy weight, 12-9 decision). La Salle travels to Cleveland State University for the two-day Catholic Invitational on Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 16-17. The Lancers host Oak Hills at 5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 21, for La Salle’s senior night. Late in the season, La Salle travels to Elder High

School for the two-day Greater Catholic League Championships on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 12-13. No. 1 Elder (130 points, 13of-13 first-place votes) and No. 2 Moeller (113 points) are the favorites in the GCL South Division this winter. Both rankings stem from the Enquirer’s Division I poll for week four.

Bombers’ basketball bucks trend

Brandon Neel and Josh Lemmons both scored eight points during the loss to Moeller. Neel also had eight rebounds and five assists. Shooting percentage was a key difference in the game between the Crusaders and Lancers. Moeller netted 21-of-34 shots from the field while shooting 61.8-percent. La Salle was 16-of-42 from the field for a shooting percentage of 38.1-percent. The Lancers were outrebounded by the Lancers by a 23-18 margin. La Salle takes a week off following its loss to Moeller. The Lancers host McNicholas at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 15.

St. Xavier High School senior forward Alex Longi goes strong to the basket as he is met by Roger Bacon junior Jared Bryant (30) and senior guard Jorian Hudson (10) during a home game Jan. 5. Longi had game-highs of 22 points and eight rebounds, but it wasn’t enough; the Bombers fell 50-49.

A late-season rematch between the boys’ basketball teams at La Salle and Moeller high schools will be key for the Lancers following a home loss Friday, Jan. 8, to the Crusaders, 49-47. Moeller hosts La Salle at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 29, and the Greater Catholic League South Division title might be on the line. The Crusaders took control of the GCL South Division with its recent win over La Salle. Moeller improved to 4-0 in the GCL with an overall record of 9-1. Standing at 7-1 overall, La Salle fell to 2-1 in the

GCL with its loss to Moeller. St. Xavier (5-4, 2-2) and Elder (4-5, 1-2) round out the standings in the GCL South Division. After starting at 7-0, La Salle was out-scored by a 28-23 margin in the second half during the Lancers’ two point loss to Moeller. La Salle led the Crusaders at halftime, 24-21, before the Crusaders rallied for a Moeller win in the second half. Moeller’s Charlie Byers was 10-of-12 shooting with 22 points and two assists against La Salle. La Salle was led by a 13point performance from Ryan Fleming and a 10point performance from Matt Woeste during the loss.

Last week’s question

Do you think requiring passengers to go through a body scanner – which produces an image of one’s naked body – at airports would help increase security? “The way it is planned, with blurring of sensitive areas, would have allowed the Detroit bomber to slip through. Better to do profiling, even though this is not ‘politically correct.’ If you have been in a country that harbors or is sympathetic to terrorists, or are a citizen of such a country, you get checked ultra-carefully, period.” D.H. “Definitely! And if that is what it takes, I’m all for it. If you don’t like it, don’t fly. If you have to fly (e.g. for business) consider it a small price and small inconvenience to pay for the increased security.” B.A.N. “Yes it will help the security process. The sooner we get those scanners in every airport the safer we will be. Lets face it so many people dress in a manner that leaves nothing to the imagination so scanning should add to the fun. For everyone else who does not think it will help and do not like the idea … don’t travel by plane.” L.D. “Not really. I think the most effective way is to profile passengers. Someone traveling one way with no luggage should sure send a signal. Of course, the do-gooders will all be against this – civil liberties union taking peoples rights away.” L.S. “Yes. I would rather go through that than not be allowed to go to the restroom an hour before landing, not be able to wrap up in a blanket, and not be able to have something sitting on my lap. And stop being so politically correct for heaven’s sake. Grab someone out if they fit the profile. Not my 86year-old mom or my friend with

Next question


“I personally object to requiring passengers to go through a body scanner producing an image of one’s naked body. Wow, what a price to pay to fly. Can’t imagine putting grandma and grandpa under that scanner. Too demeaning and goes against everything I believe and subscribe to, but I would submit to it if it’s proven to increase security. I don’t think it has. Other measures should be in place to increase security and protect airline passengers.” L.B. “I see nothing wrong with using a full body scanner as long as there is privacy. We also need internal scanning of some sort – anyone could hide explosives internally and take a trip to the bathroom and unload! End of trip! Terrorists are a smart bunch – they are way ahead of the game, and being happy to die for their cause, they have nothing to lose. Life means nothing to them.” M.E.N. “If it comes to this, air travel is just not worth the hassle. No matter what happens at this point, terrorism has succeeded. Our lives are so turned upside down by the fear of future terrorist acts that we all seem to be living in a constant state of high alert and various levels of fear. The government’s unending bungling of so-called security is a shameful joke – not much of a surprise there. Lets get control of our borders and travel by car, trains and busses.” N.W.S.

Phone legislation will harm consumers In 2010, the legislature will consider bills that allows telephone companies to raise rates and significantly reduce consumer protections. In today’s tough economic times, the last thing consumers in the Cincinnati area need is higher bills. Lawmakers should strengthen Amended Substitute Senate Bill 162 and Amended House Bill 276 to protect their constituents. With more than 50 other consumer, senior and low-income groups, the Office of the Ohio Consumers’ Counsel (OCC) asked lawmakers to protect Ohioans from potential rate increases. Both bills allow telephone companies to raise by $1.25 their monthly rates for basic local telephone service once every year, indefinitely. In some areas of the state, there is no cell service or broadband, and only one provider of landline telephone service. Customers with basic service will still receive some consumer protections although less then those currently in place. However, the majority of customers – those receiving service as part of a bundle or package of services – will experience a radical reduction in consumer protections. In these modern times, telephone service is a necessity. Yet this bill would jeopardize the ability of consumers, including senior citizens, the disabled and those with serious medical conditions, to have needed access to the outside

world and 9-1-1 emergency services. For example, under the proposed legislation, telephone companies would no longer be required to provide 9-1-1 access to Ohioans who purchased a bundle of telephone services, but were disconnected for non-

payment. Furthermore, telephone companies are currently required to fix outages within 24 hours. The legislation, however, would allow telephone companies to take 72 hours to restore an outage for customers with basic service. And for the majority of customers – those with bundles of telephone services – a required time period by which service must be restored is eliminated altogether. These changes could put customers’ health and safety at risk. In addition, customers with packages or bundles of telephone services will lose: • Protections on bill credits for service outages; • Limitations on the amount of deposits that could be required for establishing or reconnecting telephone services; and • Protections involving the dis-


connection and reconnection of service, among other consumer safeguards. This legislation impacts Ohio’s low-income consumers by reducing the effectiveness of the Lifeline program. It allows Lifeline customers’ rates to increase every year, significantly reducing the overall benefit of the program, creating greater stress for Ohio’s most vulnerable citizens, including many in the Cincinnati area. If legislators are going to allow deregulation, the companies’ customers – not just their shareholders – should benefit. An expanded high-speed broadband infrastructure in unserved areas should be required. Broadband provides customers with opportunities, including the ability to receive telephone service over a high-speed connection. The legislation should also require telephone companies to invest in community computer centers and provide voice mail for Ohioans in distress. The OCC urges consumers to contact their legislators and let them know the importance of keeping telephone rates affordable and maintaining consumer protections. For more information, consumers can contact the OCC at or 1-877-PICKOCC (1- 877-742-5622). Janine Migden-Ostrander is the Consumers’ Counsel of Ohio. You could reach her at 1-877-742-5622.

Harbinger of a healthy future A new year is upon us and it is probably safe to say that not many of us are sad to see 2009 draw to a close. We are a nation at war that has serious economic woes, and are facing some critical issues, including healthcare. Despite all of the bleakness, I am optimistic, and it is because of a penguin. Many of you will have read about the penguin at Newport Aquarium that has cancer, and is being treated with the help of donations, including donated rides to and from his treatment clinic in a refrigerated truck. (Newport Aquarium, by the way, is a fine institution, but is for profit.) Why does our sick penguin friend make me optimistic for tomorrow? It’s simple really. You see, I figure if we can come together to help the penguin get over its cancer, surely we can come together to ensure that the most needy in our communities get adequate health care? I know that there must be plenty of people in Northern Kentucky with cancer in desperate need of treatment and financial help, but they did not make the front page of The Enquirer. Not one of them. And yet, I have hope that our penguin friend is a symbol of our caring, deeply, for other living beings, and that we would not deny our fellow humans the same chance as the

penguin. Surely we would not. Our penguin also gives me hope for other reasons. If in these tough economic times, compaBruce Healey nies can find Community ways to squeeze a free round Press guest in trip for the pencolumnist guin in a refrigerated truck to the treatment center, for example, surely things are on the mend. There is hope in this economy because someone cares enough to spend some of the profit on a penguin. There is a profit and so things must be picking up. Someone sees a light at the end of the tunnel. That sick penguin shows me that we are capable of joining hands over something that matters to us. What is my wish for 2010? That we, as a society, join hands to show the world that we are strong; that we are strong enough to care for a penguin, and strong enough to care for our fellow Americans, be they someone poor, someone without healthcare, and especially, our veterans. I want the world to see that we are not only strong enough to join hands over a sick penguin, but

What happens when we keep on keeping on? As his life story unfolded, he lamented, “You k n o w , Father Lou, I’ve always Father Lou t h o u g h t Guntzelman that if you orked Perspectives w hard at handling your life when you were younger, things would eventually get better. “To me, life is like climbing a mountain. I’ve always had the expectation that by this time in my life I would come to a kind of plateau where the troubles of life level off. “Now I’m beginning to wonder if there will ever be a plateau. The mountain just keeps going up – and I’m getting so tired of climbing.� I had known this man for years and had a great respect for him. This was one of those times that many of us clergy wish we had a special word or prayer to salve

someone’s troubled mind. I realize now that all I have is the same humanness, a listening ear, and a heart that cares. “As a mountain-climber, what are your options?� I inquired. “Well,� he mused, “I guess I could just sit and weep or wait for someone to come by and help me; or I could slide down to the bottom and stop climbing. “Then again, I could give up completely and jump off the mountain and end all the climbing and worrying.� After a long, thoughtful pause, he sighed and suggested, “Or – I can keep on climbing.� You can tell in people’s voices and eyes when they have arrived at an answer that is really the answer, not just an expected or temporary reply. He realized that the true solution called on him for much courage – to change his negative attitude and just keep on keeping on. I asked him whether, in his solution of just keeping on, there was any benefit

for him, or for any of us as we climb our mountains, to keep going even when we wonder about stopping. He paused, looked out the window thoughtfully as though he couldn’t think of any benefit. But then he did. He smiled, turned, looked me in the eye and resolutely said, “When you keep on climbing the view gets better.� Before me sat a very wise man. A man becoming even wiser.

many of the perplexing paradoxes of life. Life is not a disease, not a picnic, nor a punishment. It is a path on which we travel somewhere. We look for meaning, not comfortableness. Our climb may be hard for us at times and call for every ounce of courage we have, but it rewards us by becoming more revealing as we go. Life whispers to us many of its secrets.

Has your life become a juggling act trying to balance your personal or immediate family needs with the care and support for an aging parent or relative? See for yourself how assisted living at Renaissance West at North Bend Crossing can provide the best option for meeting the care needs of an aging parent or relative. More Personal Care for the Money Renaissance West’s assisted living program provides personal care services according to each individual’s needs including: assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming, and medication monitoring. Renaissance West’s exceptional assisted living service plan includes more personal care in the base monthly rate than many other area assisted living communities. Larger Assisted Living Apartments Renaissance West’s assisted living apartments are up to twice the size of those offered by some other area assisted living communities, with spacious one and two bedroom apartments from which to choose.


Somewhere in our lives we chose a road. There will always be Frost’s two paths that diverge in an unknown woods. Maybe even more than two. Once we reach a reasoned conviction of which of the two to follow – which is not always easy to accomplish – we set out on one on them. Then what? Then it’s time for perseverance, to continue steadfastly. Colloquially, it’s time to keep on keeping on. Untrustworthy negative thoughts can pester us again and again, “Should I have chosen a different path; if this is the right one shouldn’t it always be easy and enjoyable?� “Why these problems? Are they signs of a wrong choice and a directive to go backward?� “Did I blow it?� If you wonder about your life in similar ways then you were symbolically present years ago when a man came for an appointment. Though he smiled politely, feelings of disappointment and sadness accompanied him.

Unparalleled Programming and Amenities Renaissance West offers an enriching program of activities, seven days a week. With an in-house theatre, elegant restaurant-style dining room, activity room, library, and beauty/barber salon, Renaissance West offers ďŹ rst-class amenities, second to none. Distinct Memory Care Program Renaissance West features a specialized care neighborhood for individuals with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. The distinct, secure, memory care program is designed to support the individualized needs of memory impaired residents and provides the latest in both conventional and alternative therapies.

Please call (513) 661-4100 for more information or to arrange for a complimentary lunch and tour.

Snowy with a chance of meatballs Every cooking magazine I’ve picked up in the last week had it on the cover. It made me hungry enough to make some for supper. And I’ll say this right now: mine can’t compete with Rita’s, but it’s darn good for a Lebanese girl!

Community kudos

Congratulations Sacred Heart Church! Your biannual ravioli dinner (held since 1910) made the Top 100 list of readers’ favorites in “Saveur Magazine.” The blurb was published in Issue 126 and was sent in by Theresa Wolke.

My spaghetti & meatballs

Sauce and meatballs can be frozen. Put the sauce on first and while it’s cooking, make meatballs.

Rita’s recipe for spaghetti and meatballs.

Spaghetti sauce:

1⁄3 to 1⁄2 cup extra virgin olive oil 1 generous tablespoon garlic, minced Squeeze of anchovy paste (about an inch or so), optional but very good 3 cans, 28 oz. each, diced or crushed good quality tomatoes 1-2 tablespoons tomato paste (freeze the rest in portions) 1⁄2 teaspoon dry oregano 1 teaspoon dry basil

Heat olive oil and add garlic and anchovy paste. Cook until garlic is golden and fragrant. Don’t let burn. Add everything else. Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer and cook 30 minutes. Sauce will thicken slightly but shouldn’t get too thick. Adjust seasonings – salt, pepper, bit more oregano, etc. if you want.


I use a 11⁄2-inch scoop and get about 20 to 25 meatballs. You can make them as big or little as you want. You can also use all beef and no pork.

This month’s Healthy Reward is

a FREE Cincinnati Bengals resusable shopping bag! In January, a voucher for this offer will print beside your receipt at checkout with every $20 purchase of Kroger milk, cheese, and yogurt in a single transaction using your Kroger Plus® card.

1 pound ground sirloin or your choice 1⁄2 pound sausage (I use half hot and half Italian) 1-2 teaspoons salt or to taste Pepper to taste 1 generous teaspoon minced garlic 2 large eggs, slightly beaten 1 cup Parmesan cheese 11⁄2 cups breadcrumbs (I use fresh) Handful fresh parsley Up to 1 cup water (mixture should be fairly wet but able to be balled up) Parmesan for garnish


Break up meat. Then put everything else but water in and mix with a light hand. Add water – don’t add the whole cup at once as you may not need all of it. But mixture should be very moist, almost wet, to make nicely formed balls. Brown meatballs in olive oil. Add to sauce. Simmer about 30 minutes. Meanwhile put a pound of pasta on to boil. When pasta is cooked and drained, put back in pan and stir in a few ladlefuls of sauce. Toss and cook over high heat for a minute so pasta absorbs this bit of sauce. Transfer to serving bowls and ladle more sauce over pasta along with several meatballs. Pass the Parmesan!

Breaking meatball news!

After I turned my column in, Rita Maceachen called me and relented – her heirloom meatball recipe is in our online version of this column. You have to try these! For the recipe go to or call 513-591-6163.

Like Entenmann’s pound cake

ture, height or weight, but it’s really good and very tender. I guess it’s the powdered sugar that does it. The only leavening is the eggs which is why you have to follow directions beating it. It reminds me of an oldfashioned pound cake which took a pound each of butter, eggs, sugar and flour. 2 sticks salted butter, room temperature 2 cups powdered sugar 1 tablespoon vanilla extract or lemon extract 3 large eggs, room temperature 12⁄3 cup flour Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray an 81⁄2-inch loaf pan. Beat butter with sugar on high speed for five minutes. It will get fluffy. Add extract, 1 egg and about 1⁄3 of the flour. Beat for two minutes. Add the other egg, add another 1⁄3 of flour and beat two minutes. Add the last egg, the rest of the flour and beat another two minutes. Pour batter into pan. Bake 50 to 65 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on rack about 30 minutes, then turn out of pan and slice.

The Friends of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County has announced its 2010 used book sale schedule, with the first sale scheduled from Jan. 15-18, 2010 at the Warehouse, 8456 Vine St., Hartwell. “We’ve had our best year ever as far as book sales go,” said Anne Keller, Friends’ executive director. “Sales have exceeded our expectations. We feel this is due to a number of factors: the depressed economy, where people can see the value of buying gently used vs. new; expanding branch sales to other areas of the county; and our efforts to make shopping easier for book lovers by reorganizing how we sort and display items for sale.” The winter warehouse sale will feature thousands of classical musical LP records, with a huge selection of merchandise in a new audiovisual (CDs, DVDs, and VHS tapes) section. Cash, checks, Visa and MasterCard accepted. The schedule for the 14th annual win-

Somerset, Kentucky’s Premiere Inn Located Just Minutes from Lake Cumberland

There is a joke among friends here, “It’s a Phoenix that has risen from the ashes. ”When Charles and Allison Hahn Sobieck purchased the property at 502 North Main Street (in Somerset, Kentucky), there was a lot of work to be done, to say the least. With the vision of a B & B and a home in ruins, there were little choices. The dilapidated structure was removed, then reconstructed as it had been in the 1850’s. It’s a brand new home. A bit of an unusual concept for a bed and breakfast. “We reconstructed the home from scratch. This gave us the benefit of designing every amenity possible along the way, ”said Allison Sobieck, owner. Every room is equipped with many amenities you don’t often find in a traditional bed and breakfast, but rather a fine hotel. Every room has a full sized closet with a pair of micro-fiber robes hanging in them, 400- count Egyptian cotton sheets, cable TV with DVD players, queen sized beds, and a host of other things. For instance, 2 rooms have gas fireplaces and 3 rooms have whirlpool tubs. We even offer many add on amenities such as massage, dinner, flowers, etc…

INDIANA The rooms are only half of the reason to come to The Doolin House. Owners Charles and Allison just happen to both be chefs. Some of the breakfast specialties include Caramel Banana French Toast and Southern Eggs Benedict (2 fried green tomatoes topped with 2 slices of smoked bacon, 2 eggs over easy and Hollandaise). Chuck is usually in charge of breakfast and tries to do new and different things every day. Chef Chuck pointed out, “It’s fun to experiment with breakfast. It’s the one meal that encompasses all foods. It’s perfectly acceptable to see smoked salmon or a pork cutlet at the breakfast table. ”For those in no rush to rise and shine, breakfast in bed is served at no additional charge. When you need a weekend get away that’s not too far from home or you are planning your summer vacation to beautiful Lake Cumberland, remember that The Doolin House Bed and Breakfast is only a phone call away.
