Green Twp. Fire & EMS sets record for emergency runs Kurt Backscheider


Miami Township resident Richard Joesting browses books on travel at the Green Township Branch Library on Bridgetown Road. The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is the fifth busiest library system in the country.

Have you checked out the library lately? Branches open doors to display host of programs, services

Green Township resident Jacob Biehl found a quiet spot to study at the Green Township Branch Library on Bridgetown Road. A freshman science major at Cincinnati State, he said he uses the library one or two times a week because he can easily hook up to the free WIFI and take advantage of the branch’s wide variety of services.

The word library immediately brings to mind a building full of shelves of books and smart, bookish people to help you find the one you want. Even the name contains the Latin word for book. But the library has expanded like a Narnian wardrobe in recent years. While there is still a building filled with books, the universe of services and information for which it serves as a gateway is expanding exponentially and at a dizzying speed. Greg Edwards, deputy director of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County says that’s not likely to change. His library system, the fifth busiest in the country, according to the 2015 Public Library Data Service statistical report, just handed out its 600,000th library card in August and circulated more than 18 million items through its 41 branches. Lots of those items were books, and he says books will always be at the heart of library services. But his libraries are offering a lot more these days to meet the needs of those 600,000plus card holders. Libraries can help patrons learn to download e-books and other electronic items and use e-readers. In addition to books, magazines and newspapers can be checked out in electronic form. “More and more in this particular area people are using the databases and downloading ebooks and audio services,” Kathy Taylor, branch manager

She said she primarily uses the library’s Internet access to conduct genealogical research or to help her daughter with her research papers. “Computers have replaced encyclopedias and now you’re able to research much deeper,” she said. She’s noticed the Green Township branch offers many more children’s programs than it used to, and said she’s also seen the library expand its research materials. “It’s come a long way since I grew up with the library,” Nichting said.

GREEN TWP. – Green Township Fire & EMS had another record year for emergency responses in 2015. firefighters, Township paramedics and emergency medical technicians made a total of 7,307 emergency runs last year, breaking the previous record of 7,257 runs set in 2014. “This department is one of the busiest suburban fire departments in Hamilton County,” Lt. Michael Nie, public information officer for Green Township Fire & EMS, said. “With continued growth and development, we suspect this general upward trend will continue.” The more than 7,000 emergency responses last year reflects an increase of about 87 percent since 1995, and an increase of 14 percent in the last five years. Nie said 2015 was the first time the department saw an average of 20 emergency runs per day. As in prior years, he said emergency medical runs again accounted for the vast majority of the department’s responses, with 5,694 medical runs. Crews made 1,613 fire runs last year. The top medical emergency incident to which crews responded was for a sick person, with 849 runs. “Sick person is kind of a broad category,” Nie said. “It could be nausea, or light-headed or any other non-injury type of run if the dispatcher can’t classify it better within the first seconds of a call. It’s rather generic so they can get us on the road while they gather more information.” People experiencing trouble breathing represented the second-highest number of medical calls, with 636 runs. People injured in a fall ac-

The majority of emergency runs made by Green Township Fire & EMS crews in 2015 were for medical emergencies. Township firefighters and paramedics responded to 5,694 medical calls last year. Here are the most common medical runs as dispatched: » Sick person, 849 » Trouble breathing, 636 » Person injured in a fall, 599 » Chest pain, 412 » Auto accident with person injured, 394 » EMS lift assist, 375 » Person unconscious/ unresponsive, 312 » Head injury, 182 » Abdominal pain, 177 » Medical alarm, 169 » Person in seizures, 165 » Psychiatric emergency, 152 » Cardiac arrest, 151 » Attempted/threatening suicide, 139 » Person injured, 135 » Possible stroke, 131

counted for the third-highest number of emergency medical responses, with 599 runs. Crews made 412 runs for patients with chest pain. “This is not a black and white science,” Nie said. “For instance, a head injury may also be a fall. Many overdoses are dispatched as cardiac arrests or unconscious. It depends on how the dispatcher enters it based on what the caller says first. “That’s what makes this job interesting. Many times we just don’t know what we have until we get there,” he said. The growing heroin epidemic in the region has crept into Green Township, resultSee EMS, Page 4A

web and borrow movies and music CDs. “When I first started coming to the library they didn’t have computers or online materials,” he said. “Now they have more materials and better access to the materials. I think we’re lucky to have a system like this in Hamilton County. This is pretty awesome.” Delhi Township resident John Grever said he’s used libraries in Pittsburgh, Louisville and Sarasota, Fla., but, in his view, the library system Hamilton County in stands out above the rest. “It’s really a great service,” he said. “I think it’s

an outstanding library.” He visits the Delhi Township Branch Library on Foley Road three or four times a week, he said. He checks out books, movies and music, and said he also uses the library’s computers for investment services and fiplanning renancial search. Grever said he reads four to five books each week and especially appreciates the library’s online service, which allows him to order books and have them delivered to the Delhi branch. “The staff will help you if you have trouble and they’ll call you when your books are in,” he said. Emily Salyers of Delhi Township said she’s at the Delhi branch at least twice a week to do re-

Taylor said while the Green Township branch is always busy with patrons, the many children’s programs they host attract the biggest audiences. Building off the MakerSpace, she said the branch is working to offer more tech-related programs for children, allowing them to be creative makers. Patrons may come to libraries for WIFI, to use printers or to escape the cold. Charge their phone. Green Township resident Jacob Biehl, a freshman at Cincinnati State, said he stops by the Green Township branch one or two days a week to study and use the library’s wireless Internet access. “I like the comfortable atmosphere,” he said. “It’s quiet and they have plenty of media.” If near a school, children may spend time in the library because it’s close and it’s safe. They know the library workers at their branch. They can get help with homework.

The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is partially supported by tax dollars. In November 2013, the voters of Hamilton County approved a 10-year renewal tax levy which will provide funding through 2024. The 1-mill property tax costs the owner of a $100,000 home $30 annually. In 2014, the levy generated about $18 million , which is about third of the library’s $56 million annual revenue. According to the 2014 annual report, the Hamilton County library received about $36 million or 63 percent of its funding from the state’s public library fund. Taxes represent 32 percent of the funding. Patron fines and fees account for just under $1.4 million or 2.4 percent and other revenue 2.1 percent.

Programs and services at the libraries grow from needs in the community. Edwards said staff members at the branches get a lot of feedback, and library systems share ideas with their colleagues. “We do card holder surveys, track trends among our users and demand drives some of the services we offer,” he said. Next on the horizon, the library will offer hotspots, portable WIFI that can be checked out from branch libraries by patrons. “They can be checked out and used at home or when people are on vacation,” he said. As the library acquires users, its directors and administrators are constantly checking to see what services they want and need. While Edwards said people think of books initially, libraries are places for community members to gather, to meet, to learn and do. “Outside our buildings look the same,” he said. “Inside, we still have books, but we have a lot more going on.” Reporter Kurt Backscheider contributed.






LITTLE DOUBT - PEOPLE LOVE THEIR LIBRARIES We asked readers: How often do you use your local library - and which branch(es) do you use? How do you use it - online, in person - and what are your favorite and most-used library services? How has your local library changed in the last 5-10-15 years? What changes do you see for libraries in the future? Here are some responses: “I use the Delhi Library at least once a week....I also use the library online. My favorite service is taking the grandchildren to the library which I have done for the past three to four years. A very very nice lady is now our friend as she has been so helpful with the children wanting to go to the library to see her and she has books for the children that she knows they read. Her name is Katie and we all just love her. The library has changed easier way to check out.� Patricia Wegman, Delhi Township

“I love, love, love the library. Mostly I go to the Monfort Heights branch or will give myself a treat and go to the main one downtown. I am an avid chef and the library has a wonderful collection of cookbooks. If my branch doesn’t have the one I want they will arrange to have it sent to it. The type of books I like to read has it’s own special area in the downtown library. I’ve been exposed to more music styles just by browsing the CD music area. Also downtown they have the new Maker Space area. I took old cassette tapes there and transposed them into digital (I also did that with a VHS tape). “I have fallen in love with audio books and this past Christmas gave my grown son and my husband Kindles so they also can enjoy the books read to them while working/ cooking dinner/ driving in the car, etc... And you know what? My son hadn’t

used his library card in so long he needed to get a new one. The librarians at Monfort Heights got that taken care of and helped him set up his Kindle with the library app. They go out of there way to help. “I attend lectures. I went over Christmas to see the Kenner display. I go specifically to shop at the Friends of the Library store. So ask me again how do I use my library? How do I not!�

sively into digital offerings (Hoopla, Freegal, Overdrive,, etc.) that make it easy for library patrons to expand their mind and keep learning. The Maker space at the downtown library is an amazing place where patrons can get seriously creative. I don’t even know of another library that has such a cool feature. “Obviously I love our library. I hope it continues to be a leader for libraries well into the future.�

Christy Feldhaus, White Oak

“First of all, the libraries have been such a big help to my sons as they grew up. Books and computers were great helps. The employees have always been patient and informative to my sons and and grandchildren, which I appreciate so much. “As for myself, I’ve borrowed books I was about 12 at the Heuwirth Avenue location (?) (which has been gone for years). I’m 71now and still depend on the Covedale branch for so many reasons, including VHS tapes, CDs, DVDs and large print books. “I’ve attended the sessions/films/info for seniors (downstairs). Free coffee and donuts. It’s a win-win situation. “We’d be lost without our libraries.�

Carol De Armond, Westwood

“I use the library about once a week. I go to the Green Township Library on Bridgetown Road. The best library. I use it online to look for books or movies and request them, but I also go there because I love to browse the books. Going to the library for me is like when my husband goes to Lowe’s to shop. “The changes I most see are the new gizmos when checking out. You can lay about five books on that pad and it reads them all. I don’t get a paper trail any more because I can look on line on due dates. “The librarians I have met are always so helpful. I still ask questions of them.

Lewis Riley, Green Township


Julia Mace of Clifton said her sons, Calvin and Max Rush, enjoy story time with Children's Librarian Eric Davis.

“I love our libraries and the future can only get better because our grand kids and all the generations to come should reap the rewards of what our libraries hold.� Donna Bruce, Cleves

“I love my library! I use the Price Hill branch about once a week to pick up items I’ve placed on hold, to check for new movies so I can watch them at home, and visit with the staff. I use the library’s website daily to renew items, request items, and see what is new. I’ve recently discovered their eBook library and I’m loving it and introducing my sons to it. I check out books, movies, audio books – downloads, CDs and Playaways. “My local branch, Price Hill, has become s place where children and teens hang out and get affirmation for reading, participating in community projects, learning new skills and being in a safe place. The staff deals with children unsupervised who are sometimes hungry for food and for adult attention, angry adults who threaten them when the rules are upheld, all with grace and dignity and respect for their fellow man. They have made a concerted effort to reach out to our Spanishspeaking neighbors as

well. “I love my library!� Ellen Read, Price Hill

“I love the Cincinnati Public Library. It is one of the best libraries in the country and a point of pride for me when I talk about Cincinnati. “My family uses the library nearly every day. My wife and I read ebooks checked out via Overdrive (the library’s ebook service). Being able to finish a book and check out a new one right away without leaving the house is a huge convenience and has increased our reading level and allowed us to try many new authors. “We visit the local Green Township branch at least once a week to check out books and DVDs with our children. They also enjoy playing the computer games available at our location. My 8-year-old daughter recently got her first library card. She was extremely proud and excited to start using it. I was pleased that our library had two different kinds of cards for kids. The one we chose limits checkouts but has no overdue fines. An easy choice for parents. “I’ve been very impressed with the library’s ability to keep innovating. Over the last decade, the library has moved aggres-

“I still use my local library (Clifton) to pick up books I've put on hold. I take my kids and we pick out books and they use the computer (if I allow it!). Like most families in Clifton, they know and love the local children's librarian, Mr. Eric (Davis). Julia Mace, Clifton

“It was exciting for me to see the Press ask for comments about our local libraries. I love everything about our libraries. “When we were in school, my best friend, Sharon, and I would walk our childhood from homes on Suire to the Price Hill branch. I am sure those walks helped cement the close relationship we still have today. I can still remember the unique smell of rooms full of old books. I have only returned to that branch a couple of times since then. That familiar smell was still there along with

much needed and much used computers. “I have been lucky enough to be a caregiver to many children for 35plus years. I have been taking most of those children to the Delhi Library for story time, weekly for many of those years. I have known many of the children librarians over the years. They have all been great with the children and seemed to really enjoy their jobs. I have attempted to instill my love for books in these children and I believe I have been successful. “My ‘children’ love and look forward to our trips to the library and love to be read to and read themselves. Paige, who is 3 ½, ‘reads’ to her new little sister, Addisen. “I have also needed help from time to time from the other librarians and they are always happy to help. The libraries special events and lectures are also educational and enjoyable. “If you are not using library services at this time, stop in and pick up a schedule. I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised to see what you have been missing. “On behalf of myself and the many children that I care for, and those who have grown up loving the library, I thank all who have made our libraries a fun place to visit, and a great place to learn.â€? Barb Shively, Delhi Township

ing in a steady increase of emergency medical calls for overdoses. In 2012, township crews responded to 34 opiate overdoses. That number grew to 49 runs in 2013 and jumped to 76 runs in 2014. The department made 89 runs for overdoses in 2015. Nie said it is categorized as an opiate overdose because they can’t be certain it is all heroin. “Opiates all act similarly and are sometimes mixed or substituted,” he said. When gathering the fire statistics for last year, he said he found that no particular type of household fire stands out. Incidents the likes of electrical problems, short circuits, power lines down and hot outlets made up a total of 116 fire runs. Nie said there were 106 runs for actual structure fires in 2015. “That could be everything from a wastebasket fire to a fully involved structure,” he said. “Actual fires in buildings are a small percentage of the runs we make.” The most common type of fire run was for false alarms of one sort or another, he said. Last year firefighters made 382 fire runs that turned out to be false alarms. Of those, 290 were for unintentional activations, such as smoke from cooking, steam from a shower or dust. System malfunctions, such as bad smoke detectors or power surges, accounted for 79 false alarms, and he said there were 13 malicious false alarms, where a fire alarm was intentionally pulled by someone when there was no fire.

SCHOOLS NOTEBOOK McAuley High School » McAuley students hosted 16 special needs children at a beach-theme dance party at McAuley Jan. 15. Seniors Abbi Hughes, Lauren Tebbe and Jamie Fehring spearheaded the event, which included dancing, crafts, and games for the children, whose ages ranged from 6 to 13. Siblings were also invited to attend the event, which was also served to provide the children’s parents with an evening to themselves. The McAuley students worked in conjunction with Special Olympics to help spread the word about the event. “I think the children enjoyed having individual attention for two whole hours to do whatever they wanted,” Tebbe said. “Whether they were running around or tossing balloons, the smiles on their faces were priceless!” “The event was so rewarding to see not only the kids so happy, but also their parents, who enjoyed seeing their children having so much fun, laughing, and smiling,” Hughes said. “It was a great experience, and I definitely cannot wait to see this project continue!” “What I found most rewarding was the genuine happiness that each child had,” Fehring said. “It was infectious and definitely made it feel like a party!” » Nine McAuley High School musicians will perform in the SWOCHB (Southwest Ohio Catholic Honor Band) 2016 concert Sunday, Feb. 7, at Seton High School.

The St. Al’s seventh-graders read “Okay for Now” by Gary Schmidt. Each chapter of the book includes a bird print by John James Audubon which is interwoven into the story, and one of the book characters draws copies of Audubon prints at a library.

Steak, truffles speak language of love I just loved the request Well, I not only have a from a Northern Kentucky recipe that looks like reader for a Valentine’s Day what she wants, I think recipe. “My husband keeps this one might be what talking about his mom’s Swiss his mom made. steak. All he remembers is I also wanted to share that she pounded salt and truffle recipes. What pepper into the meat with better way to say Rita flour, browned it and then “You’re special?” There baked it with tomatoes. It had Heikenfeld are two recipes: one for cheese on the top and was his adults and one for kids. RITA’S KITCHEN favorite. I would like to make Rita Nader Heikenthis as a surprise Valentine’s Day feld is an herbalist, educator, Jundinner for him. If you have a recigle Jim’s Eastgate culinary profespe that is close, I would really sional and author. Find her blog appreciate it”, she said. online at

‘I love you’ oven Swiss steak 1-1/2 pounds round steak, 3/4” thick 1/4 cup flour 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons ea. salt and pepper 1 can stewed tomatoes 1/2 cup ea. chopped celery and carrot 1/4 cup chopped onion 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce or bit more to taste 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 325. Cut meat into 4 portions. Mix flour, salt and pepper and pound into meat. Set aside flour that is left. Brown meat in oil or shortening on all sides. Don’t cook it, just brown it. Place meat in shallow baking dish. Blend remaining flour with drippings in skillet and add rest of ingredients, except for cheese. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Pour over meat. Cover tightly and bake for 2 hours or until tender. Top with cheese and return to oven for a few minutes to melt cheese.

It’s that time of year - chocolate and Oreo truffles.

Elegant chocolate truffles 3 tablespoons light corn syrup 3/4 cup whipping cream, unwhipped 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into very small pieces 1 teaspoon vanilla

In a small saucepan combine the corn syrup and heavy cream. Bring to a simmer and add the 12 ounces of chocolate. Stir until smooth. Remove from the heat and add vanilla. Pour the mixture into a container and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour until firm. Scoop chocolate using small ice cream scoop onto pan lined with parchment paper or sprayed foil. Return to frig until very firm.

Oreo truffles 1 pound package of Oreo sandwich cookies, divided (not double stuffed) 8 oz. cream cheese, softened 1 teaspoon vanilla

Coating: 8 oz. or so high quality melted chocolate, cooled a bit but still liquid enough to dip

Tiny sprinkles/nuts, etc. (opt) Remove the truffles from the refrigerator and shape into balls by rolling between the palms of your hands. Work quickly since the heat of your hands makes the chocolate soft. Dip each truffle into the chocolate to coat and place on wire rack for excess to drip off. Tip: for a quicker and easier truffle omit the chocolate coating and drop the shaped truffles directly into cocoa powder, nuts or coconut.

Coating: 12 oz. bag semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips, melted and cooled a bit but still liquid enough to dip

Crush 9 of the cookies to fine crumbs in food processor. Set aside. Cookies also can be finely crushed in a plastic bag using a rolling pin. Crush rest of cookies. Place in bowl and add cream cheese and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Roll into 1” balls. Dip in melted chocolate and set on wire rack. Immediately sprinkle with leftover crumbs so that crumbs adhere before chocolate coating sets up. Refrigerate until firm. Store in refrigerator up to a couple of weeks.

West Side a logical place for Indian mounds The first residents of Ohio were Indians, who first appeared in the area about 12,000 years ago. Their remains still exist in many Indian mounds all over the state. In the Cincinnati area there are 295 prehistoric Indian sites. They are all listed in a publication put out by the Museum of Natural History in 1960, “The Archaeology of Hamilton County Ohio” by S.F. Starr. At that time 146 sites existed and 148 were destroyed or excavated. Over those 12,000 years there were several different tribes known to live here.

The most famous mound in Cincinnati was at Fifth and Mound streets. A tablet was found in its middle. It was 30 feet high and 147 yards at the base. It was not excavated, but rumors existed that it was similar to the Sayler Park Mound. The top was flattened in 1794 by Anthony Wayne, when he made a platform and observation deck. It eventually deteriorated and disappeared. There were other smaller mounds at Seventh and Mound street, Fifth and Mound streets and Central and Richmond streets. There were many sites

on the west side of Cincinnati. A small mound existed in Sedamsville, another on a bluff by the Anderson Ferry, where the Indians crossed the river, and another a quarter-mile west of Anderson Ferry. Mount St. Joseph University had one on a bluff, which probably promoted “The Legend of Fiddlers Green.” In Sayler Park there were three mounds. Two still exist. Four mounds were destroyed at the gravel pits site in Hooven. There were mounds on Mount Nebo Road, Ripple Road near Harrison Pike, Blue Rock Road, and across from the State Conservation Bureau Farm on East Miami River Road. The most prolific site was the Columbia Power Plant property. It was part of the Henry

Harrison farm. It contains some of the most historic Indian sites in Hamilton County. The most import is Miami Fort, where the Mound Builders built a great fortress at the junction of the Ohio and Big Miami Rivers. On the site besides the fort there were burial mounds, a village were prehistoric Indians lived, worked and conducted religious and social ceremonies. As the years passed other Indian tribes inhabited the site. It was a great place to view Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana. These are just a few of the sites in Hamilton County.

CH@TROOM Jan. 28 question Who will be President of the United States one year from today? Why will he or she have won?

“One year from today we will be hailing the almighty and magnificent President Trump. I am not saying I agree with this choice, but yet again it will be a matter of the majority of the population voting against the greater evil rather than for the best choice. I truly long for an election where we can in good conscience vote for the right candidate with passion and belief that he or she is the best and correct choice for the highest office in our society. Trump simply has too much momentum, media presence and too many faithful followers to be stopped. He is saying the things that too many of us feel need to be said, and which the other hopefuls are too PC to state. On the campaign side he doesn't require huge donations and is therefore beholden to none of the special interests. If nothing else, this election cycle so far has been good entertainment.” M.J.F.

“I think it will be Ted Cruz. Most of America will finally wake up and realize that health care isn't a right it is a privilege, that Christianity is the national religion, diplomacy is weak and bombing is strong and good, woman should cede decisions about their bodies and reproductive health to wealthy, white evangelical males, and every citizens duty is to be armed with an open carry weapon of his or her choice. “I can relate very well to his populist story of attending common Ivy League schools, marrying a common Goldman Sach's executive and taking a job where you grind your place of employment to a standstill. “For all these democratic and patriotic reasons I see him coming out on top next year.” C.S.

“One year from today, you arrive home excited because you met with your boss today and he said due to increase in business, he was promoting you to manage the new employees. A nice raise comes with the job. The HR manager informs you your health insurance is going down in price because of increased competition. “Then you think back , a year earlier the country felt like it was rapidly suffocating, No good jobs, increased health insurance

premiums and a navy suffering through a Third World country holding guns to their heads on their own ship. J.H.D.

“Right now Democrat Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are the favorites for their parties. I think the Democratic nominee has that 47 percent of voters (Romney’s claim of those not paying taxes and/or on entitlements) in their hip pocket. Trump seems to have captured the American voters’ disappointment with current leadership. He seems to have what the frustration fueled masses are looking for i.e. a change or the next Ronald Reagan. I think that voter frustration will ‘trump’ Hillary’s very questionable track record. I hope Trump chooses wisely his VP, cabinet and advisors. He scares me, but I am naively optimistic he can right the ship. I look forward to their debates next fall as it could get ugly. Go Figure!” T.D.T.

Jan. 7 question What is the best way to handle the Syrian refugee situation?

“I read the readers replies about the potential arrival of Syrian refugees into the U.S. I have a Koran and have read it twice. Americans do not have a clue about what an influx of Muslims into this country will cause in the short as well as the long run! “The book depicts the hatred for all those who have not accepted Islam. Those who are not Muslims deserve death. Any Muslim that believes what the Koran preaches is a potential threat!

morning’s Enquirer and the first thing that entered my mind was: Have you taken the time to read the Koran? Ask yourself why isn’t the country bringing in Christian refugees? Is it because Obama favors Muslims because he was raised as one. Multiculturalism does not work! Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, stated as much because of the influx of Muslim refugees into her country. The masses have caused assimilation problems.’ “England and France have the same problems with Muslim refugees. Many Muslims like Christians don’t read their Korans or Bibles and don’t go to a Mosque or church. Muslims that do go to a particular Mosque could be radicalized to commit jihad. Jim Hanson who is a part of counter terrorism (Center for Security Policy executive vice president) stated on O’Reilly’s hour that out of 100 mosques in the U.S. that were monitored 80 were preaching jihad. “The more Muslims that take shelter here and become citizens will add to the caliphate that is the head of the snake! There will be more mosques and minarets and the calls to prayers five times a day. Schools will be affected big time! And with a liberal supreme court Sharia law could be passed and men would be able to beat their wives and all that the book allows Muslim men to do. Women would be wearing burqas in public. “If you read the Koran you will see that it is based on the Biblical old testament. The narrative is twisted to bring about a faith that depicts Jesus as a prophet and not the son of God. Christians and Jews deserve death because they have not accepted Islam as the one true religion. No one knows who created the words of the Koran. Muhammad was illiterate and lived in and out of a cave because he probably had some mental issues. Would God send down Gabriel to give this man the words that depict death to all that don’t believe in Islam? “SURA 47 - Muhammad: When ye encounter the infidels, strike off their heads till ye have made a great slaughter among them and of the rest make fast the fetters. Infidels deserve death! That includes you and me. The word infidel is mentioned 203 times in my Koran. American’s are illiterate relative to Islam and many like yourself are jumping on the bandwagon to bring them here!”

Dreyer exits Oak Hills after one year Adam Baum


Ryan Batte of Oak Hills directs his teammates on offense against Princeton Jan. 22.

Oak Hills boys have good reason for court confidence

GREEN TWP. - Evan Dreyer is the new head football coach at Anderson High School, after the Forest Hills School District Board of Education approved his hiring at a Jan. 25 meeting. After one season as coach at Oak Hills High School, Dreyer replaces Jeff Giesting, who stepped down in November after nine seasons leading the Redskins. Anderson and Oak Hills both went 1-9 in 2015. Dreyer said he resigned from his football post at Oak Hills, but will stay on as a teacher for the remainder of the school year. “Anderson is an excellent school district where my family can send our children,” said Dreyer, who went 43-19 in six seasons as head coach at Western Brown prior to Oak Hills. “We know Forest Hills is a great community that fully supports every child. Anderson has a tradition of excellence on the field as well – following coach (Vince) Suriano and coach Giesting has been a dream of mine since I was a player and young assistant coach. “I can not wait to continue the tradition of excellence on and off the field.” Dreyer, a graduate of McNicholas High School and Mount St. Joseph University, began his coaching career as an assistant at Colerain High School, before spending one season at Anderson as an assistant in 2008. The following morning, Oak Hills expressed its displeasure with the situation. “To say we are disappointed

is an understatement,” Oak Hills superintendent Todd Yohey said in a statement. “Oak Hills gave Evan an opportunity to coach and compete in Division I football and the GMC. There was a commitment to providing time to build the program around his football philosophy and approach to play calling. To abandon that after just one season is unfair to players, coaches and our community of fans.” Yohey said the district wished Dreyer well and will be looking for a replacement coach immediately. Oak Hills will begin the search for its third coach in as many years. “The administration at Oak Hills understood that I wanted to be on the East Side, closer to my family,” said Dreyer, who will also teach at Anderson High School. “Their support was tremendous throughout the interview process. The support and growth Oak Hills gave to me was a great experience. I appreciate the parents and community who supported our program. The kids’ work ethic was top notch; I thank them for their hard work and commitment to improving Oak Hills football.” In terms of style, Anderson’s offense should look drastically different under Dreyer, who likes to attack through the air. Last year, Oak Hills sophomore Jacob Woycke attempted 510 passes for 2,947 yards and 23 touchdowns. Anderson passed for five touchdowns and attempted fewer passes (210) than Woycke completed (292).

GREEN TWP. - A quick, cursory glance at the schedule longtime Oak Hills High School basketball coach Mike Price constructed this season is telling. It’s tough — aside from the already difficult Greater Miami Conference games, Price went out of his way to play the Greater Catholic entire League South. He knew they could handle it. He also wanted them to know that. “I think they have a lot of confidence about being about to play with the best teams in town,” said Price, whose Highlanders are currently 12-5 overall and third in the GMC race as of Jan. 29. “Going into this year I thought we’d be good … so I made a schedule that allowed us to play the best teams in the city; playing the best teams in the GCL, playing Winton Woods and our league on top of it gives us a variety of style to play against a variety of teams. I think they’ve taken those tests to heart.” Oak Hills lost in overtime to La Salle, lost on a buzzerbeater to Mason and gave Moeller its toughest local test in a 42-39 loss. But, the Highlanders beat Elder, St. Xavier and they get another chance at Lakota East at home Feb. 9. “Teams see we can compete with anybody in the city,” said junior forward Ryan Batte, who’s currently second in the GMC in scoring with 16.3 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. It’s a confidence that comes from chemistry and hard work when the arena is

Fired baseball coach fighting for reinstatement Hannah Sparling

A fired Western Hills baseball coach is fighting to get his job back, saying he was unfairly sacked because of a principal’s personal agenda. Matt Phillips, 32, said he was let go Jan. 14 because he wasn’t getting his players to study sessions. But Phillips said that would have been impossible, because the study sessions are new this year, and he doesn’t even have a team yet. According to the Ohio High School Athletic Association, the first day of coaching for boys

baseball is Feb. 22 this year. Coaches were banned from any contact with players between Aug. 10 and Sept. 7. The Enquirer requested a copy of Phillips’ personnel file on Jan. 19, but it has not yet been provided. Neither Western Hills University High School Principal Ken Jump nor Athletic Director Brian Meyer could be reached Monday evening for comment. At the board of education meeting Monday, a group of more than 20 parents and players rallied on behalf of their coach. Sporting Mustangs hats, shirts and jerseys, they spoke

about Phillips’ dedication to the team, the sport and the baseball “family.” Sophomore Gabriel BockMarshall said baseball is what makes him look forward to school. “It’s more than just a baseball team,” he said. “… I don’t know what it would be like not having him coach me. And I don’t want to find out.” Phillips has been at West High going on three years, where he works security in addition to coaching, he said. Prior, he was a at Oyler paraprofessional School, where he helped start a baseball program.

Carolina Panthers middle linebacker Luke Kuechly (59) celebrates after beating the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC Championship game at Bank of America Stadium Jan. 24.

St. Xavier’s Kuechly: Cincinnati’s Captain America Adam Baum

SPRINGFIELD TWP. - Cam Newton calls him “Captain America.” But, before the nation knew Luke Kuechly, he was Cincinnati’s captain. And in many ways, the 2009 St. Xavier High School graduate remains one of this city’s proud captains with or without football pads on. When Kuechly’s feet hit the field, under the lights of Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., in Super Bowl 50, he’ll not only be representing his team and a fan base – booming thanks to a pair of postseason pick-sixes – but also his family, friends and hometown. Luke knew it as a little kid. “When they’re little this is what they dream about doing,” said Luke’s mom, Eileen Kuechly. As Carolina mangled Arizona, 49-15, in the NFC Championship game Sunday night, Eileen heard a story from one of Luke’s childhood friends, Matthew Reilly, who lives and teaches in Charlotte. “(Matthew) said, ‘When Luke and I were 10 years old we were sitting in my basement … talking about, one day we’re going to be playing in the Super Bowl,’ and that’s what he’s doing for cryin’ out loud,” said Eileen. Luke’s living his dream. St. Xavier’s dream was slightly different, and not realized until much later. The Bomber blue community, their dream was to have a representative like Luke. His uniform’s fashioned with No. 59 and a very telling “C” – which might as well mean Cincinnati, or character, or any other number of words capable of describing Kuechly. “It’s pretty simple, Luke is a better human being than he is a football player,” said St. Xavier coach Steve Specht. “I think if you really looked at all the players in the NFL you are going to find that the majority are tremendous people who happen to be gifted football players. “Unfortunately we don’t get to read about all of those people.” Specht said we often hear more about the negative issues than the positive.

“I guess that’s what I love about Luke; it doesn’t matter if he wins a Super Bowl or is voted the defensive MVP, he will still be the same guy that wants to give his best and leave the world a better place than he found it. That’s the way he is and always will be,” Specht said. “Winning a Super Bowl ring would be great for Luke and the community, but how he carries himself is what continues to make us proud.” Kuechly is the fourth St. X grad to make a Super Bowl roster. Greg Scruggs (class of ’08) was inactive, but on the roster for the Seahawks’ last two Super Bowl trips. Pat Ross (class of ’01) played for the Seahawks when they fell to Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XLI. Currently, Rocky Boiman (class of ’98) is the only Bomber to play in and win a Super Bowl as a member of the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XL. “Anybody who’s worn a football helmet for 22 years or 22 minutes, every kid has dreamed of playing in the Super Bowl and winning … it’s the ultimate reward,” said Boiman, who added it’s easy to see why Luke’s left such an impression on this community. “He’s the perfect embodiment of what St. Xavier’s all about,” said Boiman. “To who much is given, much is expected. For him to have that drive and to be as humble as he is and a man of the community. That’s what it’s all about.” Eileen also understands why Luke is so revered. “I do get it,” she said. “But then, we laugh too cause we know Luke. We see him at home and he’s still like a kid, too. He’s a thoughtful person and it comes from the people he’s been in contact with.” On Feb. 7, Luke’s parents and his brothers, John and Henry, who Eileen described as ecstatic, will watch Luke play linebacker in the Super Bowl. They love watching Luke play linebacker, but they love the man he’s become even more. “It has to be the man, because at the end this football will be done. What is he gonna be after that?” said Eileen. “If he is a good man, a man for others then I think we did a good job.”

like a young team. “I guess we’re considered a young team because we have a bunch of juniors and sophomores play a lot of minutes,” said junior Luke Rudy, who’s averaging 12.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. “All these guys started at one point last year,” said Lake, who posts 10.4 points per game and shoots 50 percent from 3point range.

“It’s a dying sport in the inner city,” he said. Phillips’ own career ended with an arm injury, he said. He took some time away from the game before he decided to commit to coaching. Baseball teaches teamwork, hard work, leadership and “what it means to go for something,” he said. “It’s an outlet that kids haven’t been exposed to,” he said. “It got me into college. It got me to get a college degree.” CPS Board of Education president Ericka CopelandDansby said the board can’t discuss personnel issues in open The Highlanders, ranked No. 6 in the most recent Enquirer Division I coaches’ poll, are a matchup nightmare, capable of an inside-out game that can keep the opposition up at night. Price said he’s aware of how problematic his team can be for opponents. “It’s a credit to the young men and their skill work and the time they put in,” Price said. “We can put five guys on the floor who can all shoot threes, who can handle the ball, who can pass the ball and two or three of them can post up. For good teams you have to

session. However, she confirmed Phillips did meet with the principal and a district superintendent, and they are “working through things.” Assistant Superintendent Bill Myles said there will be another meeting on Tuesday. Myles said there were “issues that happened on both sides,” but “we will come up with a solution that everyone will be able to live with.” Meanwhile, the coaching position was posted Jan. 19 on CPS’ website. Phillips knows exactly when it went up. “I applied about 15 times,” he said. be able to play different styles. In the tournament you’re gonna see different styles.” Price emphasized his team can still improve, “there’s a lot of little things … we’re not where we want to be yet.” Lake said they want to finish strong, especially for the other seniors (Henry Stucke, Zach Doran, Donovan Saylor). “The last two years we were supposed to be good and we were just mediocre,” said Lake. “We’re trying to have this year be as good as it can possibly be and just lay something down that they can build on next year.”

Energy bill scam duping customers nationwide Now a warning about an elaborate scam that tries to convince consumers their energy bill is overdue and needs to be paid immediately. Duke Energy says it is aware of this scam, that it’s shown up in five states, and that it’s not unique to Duke since it is happening to all utility companies through the U.S. and Canada. However, Duke says, complaints about this scam have doubled in the past year. In Greater Cincinnati a customer named Steve wrote me to say he received a phone call at the end of January from someone claiming to be from Duke Energy. “They told me they have a work order to shut off the electric to my business. I explained my case, thinking they were really Duke representatives, stating that my bill is current – and I checked online that everything was OK, that payment was received.” But, Steve writes, “They went on to say that it has not been received

part of the U.S. After learning the call was a scam he writes, “I took it upon myself to call that 844 number and it really does say Duke Energy with a menu selection. I pressed 1 and within two rings I did get a person that said, ‘Thank you for calling Duke Energy. How may I direct your call?’ This is a very high tech scam, others need to be alerted.” The scammer was trying to get Steve to put that $946 payment on a prepaid debit card. He would then call that phone number, to those pretending to be with Duke, and give them the numbers on that debit card. That would allow the scammers to get the $946 immediately and get away without a trace. Duke Energy warns, “Prepaid debit cards are like cash and the transactions cannot be reversed. If a caller specifically asks you to pay by prepaid debit card, this is a red flag.” Duke Energy says it will never call and demand immediate pay-

ment without first sending you a notification by mail. In fact, it says it will send several notifications over the course of several weeks prior to electric service disconnection. Duke also says it will never ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone. Duke says some customers have received emails claiming their energy bill is past due and instructs them to click on a link to pay their bill. It warns not to click on the link because that could result in a virus being downloaded onto their computer or lead of the theft of their personal information. Duke says it’s working with law enforcement to try to stop these telemarketing fraud rings. It says technology makes it very difficult to trace these criminals calls and notes they can be calling from anywhere in the world. Howard Ain appears as the Troubleshooter on WKRC-TV Local 12 News.

He gave me a phone number to call. I hung up the phone and decided to call Duke. They said everything was fine on the account-- and they don’t call anyway. They are looking into it,” Steve wrote.
