Oak Hills groups at odds over logo By Kurt Backscheider

A fight has been brewing between the Oak Hills Athletic Boosters and the Little Highlanders organization regarding the use of the Old English “OH” service mark. The Boosters have requested the Little Highlanders stop using the logo, but the Little Highlanders contend the Boosters does not own the logo.KURT BACKSCHEIDER/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

The Oak Hills Athletic Boosters and the Little Highlanders organization could end up in court regarding the use of a logo. The Athletic Boosters has requested the Little Highlanders stop using the Old English “OH” service mark or legal action may be taken, but the Little Highlanders contend the Athletic Boosters do not own the service mark and cannot prohibit their use of it. “The Boosters have made a claim they own the ‘OH’ service mark,” said Ed Badinghaus, president of the Little Highlanders and a 1990 Oak Hills High School graduate. “We don’t believe they own the service mark. We believe it should be owned by the school district and the community.” He said the Little Highland-

ers, a youth football and cheerleading organization, has been in existence for more than 40 years and has been using the logo on its helmets and uniforms for decades. Taking the “OH” symbol and what it represents away from the roughly 420 children who play football and do cheerleading for the Little Highlanders doesn’t hurt the parents and coaches, Badinghaus said. It hurts the children. “They deserve to feel that sense of community, the ‘One Heartbeat,’ from the time they’re in kindergarten through the time they’re in 12th-grade,” he said. “They deserve to be part of the community. “I think it’s sad, and I think it needs to stop. Is this the right thing to do for the community,” he said. Jim Frondorf, vice president

AGREED TO TERMS Here are the organizations in the Oak Hills community who have signed the usage agreement with the Oak Hills Athletic Boosters and paid the $25 fee to use the Old English “OH” service mark.

Kroner marks 75 years of cleaning on North Bend By Kurt Backscheider

CHEVIOT — In the dry cleaning industry, Ray Kroner said you’re only as good as your previous day’s work. “I wake up every day and think, ‘OK, we have a chance to do it better today,’” he said. The constant pursuit of detailed-oriented results and a commitment to quality are reasons Kroner Dry Cleaners, 3820 North Bend Road, has been able to stay in business for three quarters of a century. The family business is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. Kroner, the president and third-generation owner of the company, said it’s the oldest single-family owned dry cleaner in Cincinnati. “My grandfather, Lou Kroner Sr., started the business in 1939 and my dad (Lou Kroner Jr.)

came on in the early 1940s,” he said. “We started as Cheviot Dry Cleaners & Tailors. Dad realized the importance of the neighborhood aspect and family traditions, so he persuaded grandpa to change the name to Lou Kroner & Sons.” When his grandfather and father first started, Kroner said the business focused on serving the Cheviot and Westwood neighborhoods, but over the years their pickup and delivery service has allowed them to expand and include communities like Green Township, Cleves, Clifton, Colerain Township, College Hill, Covedale and Delhi Township. He said their delivery and pickup services are also now quite successful serving offices and condominiums in downtown

GREEN TWP. — The township is buying an old railroad right of way for the purpose of developing a biking and hiking trail. The Green Township trustees voted Jan. 27 to buy a section of the former Chesapeake and Ohio railroad property. The portion of the railroad, which also belonged to CSX, the township plans to buy runs mostly parallel to Harrison Avenue and stretches from Hutchinson Road to Marie Avenue, near the intersection of Bridgetown and Race roads. “We think this is going to be a tremendous asset to the township,” Trustee Chairman Tony Rosiello said. “A lot of good things could come out of this.” The roughly 1.5-mile stretch encompasses close to 13 acres. Frank Hyle, Green Township’s attorney, said the property has been appraised at $995,000, but the township is buying it for $450,000. The township is using tax increment financing funds for the purchase. He said the township is buying the property from McKenna & Friedmann Real Estate Co. Rosiello said the township is working with Great Parks of Hamilton County and applying for grant funding to turn the old railroad line into a hiking, biking and fitness trail. The trail would run behind the planned Harrison Green development anchored by Graeter’s ice cream and Dewey’s pizza on Harrison Avenue, and could play a role in attracting future development to the Harrison Avenue corridor, he said. Extending the trail farther northwest along the railroad line and connecting it to Veterans Park is the township’s long-term goal, Rosiello said. The township would work with The Christ Hospital, which owns a portion of the railroad property between Hutchinson Road and Veterans Park, and other property owners to make the project happen, he said. Trustee David Linnenberg said he’s been pushing for more sidewalks and bike paths in the township since he joined the board. He said he likes the fact the trail would run parallel to Harrison Avenue, but not directly alongside the busy road. Hyle said the township hopes to close on the purchase by the end of February.

Price Hill Beerfest returns for second year By Kurt Backscheider



Beer connoisseurs, along with those who simply like beer, are invited to whet their whistles at the second annual Price Hill Beerfest. The showcase of beer takes place from 4-8 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 16, at Price Hill Chili, 4920 Glenway Ave. “It’s something different,” said Steve Beltsos, co-owner of Price Hill

choose. Food from Price Hill Chili will be available for purchase, but the event will feature a limited menu. Beltsos said he and fellow Civic Club board member and amateur beer connoisseur Charles Bazeley decided last year Price Hill needed its own beer showcase. “There are beer festivals all over the city,” Beltsos said. “Why shouldn’t we have one?” Longtime Price Hill resident and Civic Club

member Marilyn Schutte, whose husband, Bob, is the club’s treasurer, said they really enjoyed last year’s Beerfest and they plan on attending again this year. “It’s just a neat event,” Schutte said. “It’s a fun way to spend an afternoon.” Only 150 tickets will be sold for the event. The $20 ticket also includes a commemorative sampling glass. Tickets are available at Price Hill Chili.


since the 1960s and asking the Little Highlanders to cease using the service mark. If the Little Highlanders refuse the request, the letter said the Boosters may elect to file a lawsuit. “The Boosters believe that this issue is so important that we are committed to do whatever is necessary to maintain the integrity of the mark,” Frondorf said. Badinghaus said in addition to disagreeing the Boosters own the logo – he said the Boosters twice allowed its ownership of the mark to lapse – his organization also declined signing the agreement because it doesn’t agree to a term which gives the Boosters authority to revoke the use of the service mark if the Boosters feel the use of the mark is po-

tentially damaging to its mission. “Our right can be taken away at their discretion,” he said. “We don’t agree to that.” “My sense is that personalities have gotten in the way to some extent, and that some on the Little Highlanders side haven’t given enough thought to the damage that could be done by unscrupulous or inappropriate use of this important symbol of our community. Our goal is to establish and enforce standards of use that most reasonable people would agree upon.” Badinghaus said Little Highlanders have supported the community and district in countless ways, and to have its loyalty and character questioned isn’t something they take lightly.

2012; Ray Kroner’s sister, Mary, worked there for 14 years before opening her own restaurant in Northside two years ago, and his aunt worked as the bookkeeper for 62 years before retiring at age 89. Kroner’s daughter, Emily, now manages the books. In addition to a staff trained to look for missing buttons and make minor alterations to repair clothing items, Kroner said they also utilize the latest dry cleaning technologies. The business recently bought a cleaning system developed in Germany that is both environmentally friendly and tough on stains, Kroner said.

Kroner hosted a customer appreciation day at The Public House in Cheviot Feb. 1 to celebrate the anniversary and show his company’s gratitude to its customers. “It was a good opportunity to thank people for the part they play as loyal customers in keeping us going,” he said. He said he sits down frequently with his staff and talks with them about how quality and attention to details keep them in business. “We want people to come to us because we’re good, not because we’re the last man standing,” Kroner said.

2013, the Boosters asked organizations in the district who wish to use the service mark to pay a $25 fee and agree to a list of terms for using the logo. Frondorf said 16 groups were sent the usage agreement, and so far 13 have signed the agreement. He said one group declared no intention of using the logo and opted not to sign, leaving the Little Highlanders football and cheerleading groups as the only two other organizations choosing not to agree to the terms. The Boosters’ attorney sent the Little Highlanders a letter near the end of January indicating the Boosters has used the logo

Seton, Elder choirs performing at Carnegie Hall By Kurt Backscheider

PRICE HILL — Students from Seton and Elder high schools are packing their bags for a trip to New York City to perform at Carnegie Hall. The school choirs have been invited to sing in a Feb. 17 concert presented by Distinguished Concerts International New York. “This is a once-in-alifetime opportunity,” said Maribeth Samoya, choir director and music teacher at Seton. “It’s not often you get invited to perform at Carnegie Hall.” The Seton and Elder choir was asked to perform in the concert based upon a recommendation by award-winning composer and arranger Greg Gilpin. Samoya said she and Elder music teacher Jordan Schad became friends with Gilpin a

while back when he visited the schools to conduct a music workshop. Gilpin is one of the composers of the concert, which celebrates the 75th anniversary of the Shawnee Press, a publisher of choral and instrumental music. Samoya said 34 students from Seton and 40 students from Elder are making the trip to perform. The students, along with Samoya, Schad and Elder music directors Dave Allen and Jack Anderson, will be in the Big Apple from Feb. 14-18. “It’s kind of a big deal,” Seton senior and choir member Olivia Wall said. “I’m excited about it. I’ve never been to New York City before.” She said she and her fellow choir members have been rehearsing for the show since November. Seton senior Cayla Schmitt said, “Being able

to sing in front of all those people in Carnegie Hall will be awesome.” Elder senior Jay Quitter said it’s hard for him to put into words what it means to be invited to perform in New York City. “It’s an opportunity I never thought would come my way,” he said. “Performing at Carnegie Hall, which is such an historic venue, is something all performers dream about. It’s going to be an eye opening experience, and I can’t wait.” Samoya said she’s looking forward to the trip and being able to watch the students learn from Gilpin and the other talented composers and musicians involved with the concert. “I think it’s great our students have an opportunity to work with these award-winning composers and arrangers who have worked all over the world,” she said.

Springmyer supporting area family by hosting blood drive By Kurt Backscheider

GREEN TWP. — Springmyer Elementary School is coming together to support one of its families and invites the community to join in helping. Michelle Ellis, the school psychologist at Springmyer, said this past summer the Linnig family

found out their youngest daughter, 3-year-old Kylie, has a form of childhood cancer. Springmyer staff keeps in close communication with the Linnigs, who also have a daughter in kindergarten and a daughter in the fifthgrade at Springmyer, and Ellis said she closely follows a blog the family

started to let everyone know how Kylie is doing. “I was looking at the care page and saw that her mom had posted some information about ways people could help, and one of the ways was donating blood,” Ellis said. After reading about how Kylie has depended on blood donations, Ellis decided to take action and

organized a blood drive at the school. Springmyer will host a blood drive for the Hoxworth Blood Center from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 10, in the school’s gymnasium, 4179 Ebenezer Road. The blood drive was originally set for a day in December, but had to be rescheduled due to a school snow day.

“Everyone wants to be able to do something to help, and this was something I could do,” Ellis said. Several Springmyer teachers and parents have signed up to donate, as well as many teachers and parents from throughout the Oak Hills district, she said. Community members interested in donating can schedule a time online at or contact Ellis at 574-1205 or Requirements and eligibility for donating are listed on the above web page. Springmyer staff members have been promoting the blood drive and students made a video about the event in which they interviewed Ellis and Kylie’s oldest sister, fifthgrader Kaitlyn Linnig. Since finding out about the cancer in July, Kaitlyn Linnig said her sister has received dozens of che-

motherapy treatments and transfusions of red blood cells and platelets. “The transfusions are very important for her to be able to recover from chemotherapy,” Kaitlyn said. She said her family appreciates the care and help they’re receiving. “We would like to thank the Springmyer family for their support in hosting this blood drive,” she said. Ellis said blood donors can help save lives. She said about 400 people need to donate blood each day to ensure a safe and adequate blood supply for the area, so in addition to supporting the Linnig family, donors are helping the entire community. She said the Linnig family is thrilled the school is hosting the blood drive. “They are such a sweet family, and they are really touched we are putting this on,” Ellis said.

Mother of Mercy artists recognized

This fall, Mother of Mercy High School art students had artwork awarded and on display in several contests and exhibitions across the city. Junior Hannah Bailey was the first-place winner in the Westwood Art Show Poster Contest. Bailey’s artwork celebrated the fifth annual Westwood Art Show held in September. Seniors Tricia Cavanaugh, Jessica Flamm and Sydney Massengale, and junior Hannah Muddiman had their artwork in the College of Mount St. Joseph Departments of Art & Design Selections ‘13 exhibit. The biennial exhibition consists of art created by area high school students. Selections is designed to celebrate the creative accomplishments of student artists, honor deserving

individuals and salute the art programs in area schools. Muddiman and seniors Julia Kennedy and Maddie Nieman had their art displayed in a juried high school art exhibit at Thomas More College. Most recently, eight Mercy art students were recognized in a photo contest sponsored by the Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton County. In the12-14 age group, freshmen Maria Schroeder placed second, while sophomores Ellen Baverman and Alyssa Cassidy received honorable mentions. In the 15-18 age group, senior Courtney Reder finished in second place and Flamm placed third, while seniors Macey Anderson, Nikki Newsom and Savannah Wagner earned honorable mentions.

Theresa Murphy, Mother of Mercy Art teacher, received a faculty recognition award, and students Tricia Cavanaugh, Hannah Muddiman and Jessica Flamm were recognized for their artwork at the College of Mount St. Joseph’s Selections 2013 exhibit. PROVIDED

St. Ursula freshmen make a brighter Christmas for kids around the world St. Ursula Academy freshmen are making sure they help spread cheer and kindness this Christmas season by participating in Operation Christmas Child. For the seventh year, the freshman students organized a class-wide effort to collect toys, personal care items, and supplies for children in need. It’s part of their annual class service project to support Operation Christmas Child, an international program that is or-


ganized by Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham. The students wrapped shoe boxes full of the items they collected for boys and girls ages 2 to14. The care packages are then shipped all over the world at Christmas. The boxes are delivered to children in all parts of our world who would not otherwise receive gifts. The goal was to collect enough items to fill one large box per advisory group and there are 32 advisories. The


students were thrilled when they learned they had wrapped 42 boxes this year, beating their goal. “The timing of this wonderful project is good because it comes right on the heels of our school-wide Canned Food Drive, where the freshman see first-hand how the school rallies together to make a real difference in our community and the world,” class moderator and teacher Barb Baker said.

Seton High School religion teacher Eric Green wanted his sophomore students to gain an appreciation for the diversity of Jesus’ ministry so he created a project called The School of Jesus, which provided an overview of the ministry stories of Jesus. “Each sophomore students had to choose a ministry story of Jesus and then create a profile card on that event,” Green said. “They had to research 10 criteria. They also had to create an Animoto video that would serve as a meditation video on their event. Once the project was completed, their work was set up in an exhibit in school library, and students had an opportunity to explore their classmates work.” There also was a scavenger hunt where students used the projects of their classmates to find answers to the clues. During the School of Jesus, students find exact locations where Jesus did his ministry. Pictured from left are Nora Hibbard, Brianna Brannon, Rileigh Smyth and Anna Lindle. PROVIDED

Elder’s Pike goes full circle, inks with Clawson, Demon Deacons By Tom Skeen

PRICE HILL — The recruiting process came full circle for Elder High School senior Devin Pike. Pike inked his National Letter of Intent to play college football for Wake Forest University and coach Dave Clawson Feb. 5, but not without the usual ups and downs provided by the recruiting process. “It was a lot of weight off my shoulders getting everything

out of the way,” the tight end said, who had 34 receptions for 400 yards and two touchdowns his senior season for the Panthers. “I know where I’m going now, I don’t have to worry about things and I can focus on what’s ahead of me.” Clawson was named coach of the Demon Deacons more than two months ago, but Pike has been on his radar much longer. He was one of the first coaches to offer Pike a scholarship back in February 2013 while he was head coach at Bowling Green

State University. With many Division I offers on the table, Pike turned down Clawson and BGSU’s offer and verbally committed to the University of Louisville in July. That all changed in December when Louisville coach Charlie Strong and his much of his coaching staff, including offensive coordinator Shawn Watson, left for the University of Texas. “(The coaching change) was a big part of it because I was with them the whole summer,” Pike said of why he changed his mind.

“… If coach Watson would have stayed I may have considered staying, but I think Wake Forest is a better fit overall.” It was a decision that thrilled Clawson. “… We just approached him and asked if he’d have interest and he said, ‘yes,’” Clawson said of his maneuvering after Pike de-committed from Louisville. “We met with him and his family and got him here for a visit and I think he really fell in love with See PIKE, Page A9

Runkel’s sure-fire tactics prepare St. X bowlers for postseason run By Tom Skeen


There is no extent to which St. Xavier High School bowling coach Alan Runkel won’t go through to get his guys ready for the postseason. It’s possible that when you walk into Brentwood Bowl you could see Runkel on his hands and knees halfway down a lane pushing oil every which way just to ‘spice things up’ a bit for his guys in preparation for what’s to come over the next month. “(Brentwood Bowl) is very cooperative with us so I actually go out there and screw the lanes up to make them harder for the boys to practice on because the (postseason) won’t be on the standard, typical, recreational house shot that we bowl on,” Runkel said. “… We’ve been practicing on some very difficult lane conditions for the last few weeks, so hopefully that pays off when we get to the (postseason).” If that isn’t enough, the Bombers (11-8) have encountered one of the toughest schedules in the city, much of which comes from their own league. Of their eight losses, seven have come to Greater Catholic League South opponents with the other coming to Middletown who is currently ranked No. 2 in The Enquirer Division I area coaches’ poll. “These guys, when they get into the (postseason) they won’t be afraid of anybody because they’ve been there with all these other teams,” the coach said. And Runkel’s right; his guys have challenged nearly every opponent they’ve encountered. The Bombers have been in six matches decided by less than 100 pins, winning three of them. It’s a result Runkel says sticks with

him more than his bowlers. “It’s tougher as a coach,” he said. “As soon as they walk out the door they’re listening to music in their car and having a good time. They forget about it. For me, (a loss) will be with me until at least eight o’clock (the night after a match).” Senior Kevin Polking of the Cheviot/Westwood area is an interesting story. His 216.2 average ranks first in the GCL South despite being just a second-year bowler with the Bombers. According to Runkel, Polking didn’t believe he was good enough to bowl for St. X as a freshman or sophomore, but his two-handed approach has landed him at the top of his game just a year and a half later. “(Kevin) is a gym rat, but in a bowling center,” Runkel said. “Besides our

own schedule we keep, on Sundays and Saturdays he gets out and bowls for a couple of hours. He probably bowls an additional 20 games a week. He juggles three jobs, is an honor student and he works hard at it.” Fellow senior Ben Weinberger of Fairfield is having another phenomenal season after earning GCL South Athlete of the Year honors last season. His 210.1 average sits fourth in the league and he’s doing it on nearly half a wrist. “… He’s probably bowling on a wrist that’s 60 percent, 70 percent, maybe, and he’s still averaging (210.1),” Runkel said. “I don’t know if he’ll (be GCL South Athlete of the Year again), but for what he’s been able to do with 60 or 70 percent of a wrist is absolutely incredible.”

lieve his impact will be felt sooner rather than later. “He does everything you need a tight end to do,” Clawson said. “He’s a physical run blocker, he’s very athletic, he gives us a great mismatch against linebackers in the pass game and against safeties in the pass game and I just think he’s going to be a bigtime tight end for us. We like his skill set, we like his work ethic (and) we like everything about him.”

With all that being said, Runkel asks just one thing from his guys and if you do that properly you have to just let nature take its course. “As I told our guys, all you can do is throw the ball down the lane is the proper manner. Then from there you have to hope the 11 round objects, the 10 pins and the bowling ball, do their job and knock each other over.”

Legal Services Corporation and Head Start, to name but a few, collectively became known as LBJ’s “Great Steve Chabot COMMUNITY PRESS Society.” In many ways, it GUEST COLUMNIST built upon and expanded President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal programs which were aimed at bringing America out of the Great Depression. (Many argue that those New Deal programs, even though they cost a lot, didn’t ultimately end the Great Depression – World War II did.) So how effective has LBJ’s War on Poverty been over the last 50 years? Unfortunately, not very effective. The poverty rate in America is virtually the same now as it was back in 1964 when LBJ declared the War on Poverty. And that’s after the expendi-

ture of $20.7 trillion (with a “T”) of your hard-earned tax dollars on anti-poverty programs. In fact, arguably much of the money has been counterproductive, causing more harm than good. For example, in order for a family to receive welfare payments, an employed adult male could not be living in a home with the children. This discouraged marriage and two-parent families Back in 1963, before the start of the War on Poverty, only 6 percent of children in America were born out of wedlock. Today, that figure has skyrocketed to 41 percent. The government, in effect, became the father in the household; rather than a wage-earning, role model, adult male. This lack of a father in the home has led to a wide array of social problems, from poor attendance and behavior at school, to trouble with the law, to high

rates of incarceration. Unfortunately, rather than utilize these programs to become self-sufficient, and thus not need government assistance, far too many people have become dependent upon the government’s help, for life. And the family structure, particularly in many lower income neighborhoods, has been decimated, often as a direct result of the requirements to receive aid in the first place. I would submit that we’d be a lot better off if that $20.7 trillion spent over the years would have remained in the pockets of the hard-working taxpayers of this nation, to save or spend as they saw fit, to spur economic growth, and create more jobs for more people. After all, it’s been said that the best anti-poverty program, is a job. Steve Chabot represents Ohio’s First District in Congress.

Fireplace, wood stove safety tips to help protect your health Home fire safety tips include more than installing fire alarms and developing a fire escape plan. While less obvious, fire places and wood stoves can produce pollutants that can harm your health, if not addressed. If you smell smoke inside your home, that’s a sign that harmful air pollutants are in your home. Wood smoke contains a mixture of air pollutants including microscopic particles. Studies show particle pollution can harm the lungs and heart and even cause early death. According to the U.S. EPA, particle pollution can trigger asthma attacks, impair lung development in children, increase symptoms of COPD and cause coughing, wheezing and chest tightness. For people with heart disease,

particle pollution is linked to heart attacks, irregular heartbeat, heart failure and stroke. Megan People at Hummel greater risk COMMUNITY PRESS from particle GUEST COLUMNIST pollution, including wood smoke, are older adults, children and teens, and people with certain health conditions such as heart or lung disease and asthma. New or expectant mothers may also want to take precautions to protect the health of their babies. Burning the right wood, the right way, in the right woodburning appliance can reduce harmful air pollution.

Burn the right wood Not all wood is the same. Always burn dry, seasoned wood to reduce particle pollution. Softwoods such as Douglas fir need six months to dry and hardwoods such as oak need at least 12 months. Garbage, plastic, treated lumber and driftwood should never be burned.

Burn the right way

Wet wood is a problem for your health and your pocketbook. It creates a lot of smoke and burns inefficiently, meaning the heat literally goes up in smoke. Moisture meters are inexpensive and available at hardware stores to test the wetness of wood before burning. Wood should only be used if the moisture content is 20 percent or less.

Burn in the right appliance Like an old car that belches smoke out of the tailpipe, old wood stoves are bad polluters and less efficient. Newer, EPA-certified wood stoves and fireplace inserts (wood stoves designed to fit into a fireplace), reduce air pollutants by 70 percent compared to older models. Remember, there are also some important regulations for open (outdoor) burning. Where you live may determine whether you can burn. To learn more about air pollution or open burning please visit Megan Hummel is the public relations coordinator for the Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency.

BRIEFLY Township spending a concern

Once again, Green Township Fiscal Officer Tom Strauss has carefully excluded one very important number from his now annual state of the township finances report. Since its inception in 1997, the tax increment financing has and will continue to generate funds that are totally at the discretion of the whims of the trustees except for the restrictions on salary and benefits for employees. Question: If the township were to contract out services to other providers that are not currently township employees would that be a valid expenditure of TIF funds permitted by state law? By his own figures, that would mean that more than $8.5 million annually would be made available for public services and other projects that township unionized personnel perform now. And, since the near term future of former state of Ohio revenues of all types has been reduced annually by nearly $5 million, one might see that the surplus that the township is actually accruing approaches $4,000,000 annually. With the still flat, if not declining, housing values and the continuing soft economy, it is well past time for some innovative out of the box thinking. Spending, not revenues, is the consistent factor at all levels of governance starting with Uncle Sam. Bold leadership requires innovation and the necessity to go where you haven't gone before. The efforts to increase long term revenues through the JEDD agreements is a good start. Everyone knows the better time to install smoke detectors is before you have a fire. It’s time to see that, as far as considering options for either increasing taxes or cutting spending, where there is smoke, there also is fire. It is time to put the fires of excessive spending out first. As for precedent of this kind of thinking, I suggest that Mr. Strauss and the township trustees Google Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin.

CH@TROOM Feb. 5 question


Fifty years of failure On Jan. 28, President Obama delivered his State of the Union Address to Congress and the nation. 50 years ago, another President, Lyndon Baines Johnson gave his first State of the Union Address, just two months after the assassination of President Kennedy. It wasn’t a particularly memorable speech. Except for one line: “This administration today, here and now, declares war on poverty in America.” That “war on poverty” would take the form of passage, by a heavily Democratic Congress, of several pieces of legislation with which we live to this day. It seems that after half a century, reviewing the effectiveness, or lack thereof, of the War on Poverty, is long overdue. So here goes. LBJ’s solution to poverty was more and bigger government. New (and expensive) programs like Job Corps, Food Stamps, Medicaid, the


strategy of destruction. “In America people are born with equal opportunity not the promise of ‘equal outcomes.’ With our God-given freedom of choice capability, we all have the freedom to select our path in life given our capabilities. “In a classroom , should the hard working ‘A’ students give part of their grades to ‘F’ students who sleep in class – thereby rewarding all students with a ‘C ‘ grade? In business, should the successful people be punished to provide ‘equality’ to others? To address so called ‘income inequality,’ thegovernment should allow businesses to grow with less regulation, lower taxes and no political harassment.

“Allowing easier business startups, and business growth – with less government interference will provide more income for everyone.”


“Our free enterprise system provides unlimited opportunities if you are willing to work hard and smart. All jobs have different pay scales based upon value, difficulty, experience, and responsibility. Unlike Socialistic systems, we all have the right to accept or refuse a $7 or a $700 an hour job. We also have the right to be self-employed. What is so unfair and unequal about that? Our president’s socialistic agenda must be stopped.”

Retro Fittings draws RECORD CROWD S

t. Vincent de Paul’s recent 11th annual RetroFittings event was attended by a record-breaking 800 guests. The event was moved to Music Hall this year because of repeat sell-out crowds. The new Creative Director, Joe Rigotti, used the new venue, Music Hall, as inspiration for this year’s theme, “A Night at the Opera.” The event showcased the fashion designs of more than 55 students from the University of Cincinnati's College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning. Each student was given a $10 voucher to shop at one of St. Vincent de Paul’s seven Thrift Stores to redesign and create an ensemble inspired by one of eight famous operas. Each design was modeled in a New York style fashion show by UC students and other special guests including event emcee Artrell Hawkins, Cincinnati Bengal Adam Jones and owners of Cincy Style Edit, Marsha Ashley and Brock Maitland. The event also featured a boutique filled with vintage and trendy items donated to St. Vincent de Paul’s thrift stores, cocktails and h'ors d'oeuvres, raffle prizes, and a live auction with items such as a one-of-a-kind jewelry piece designed by Krombholz jewelers. Proceeds from the event will benefit St. Vincent de Paul's efforts to bring hope to the front

Bread recipe easy for beginners Today is a bread baking day. The idea actually started yesterday when my friend Joanie Manzo, a Loveland reader, brought me a loaf of homemade cinnamon bread. Divine! So it got me in the bread baking mood. I didn’t have time for cinnamon bread but knew I’d have time to make Rita this easy Heikenfeld recipe for RITA’S KITCHEN Italian bread. I kept one loaf for us and sent the other to Tony and Debbie, our neighbors. With this wicked icy weather, a warm loaf of bread with a bowl of steaming stew is a comforting supper.

Italian bread for beginners and everyone else I like this recipe for its simplicity. The flavor and texture is like the kind you get at a bakery. The crust is a bit crisp and pale gold. I’m giving detailed instructions here. Check out my blog for tips on kneading and step-by-step photos. If you want, sprinkle poppy seeds on the bread after shaping. 1 package (1⁄4 oz.) active dry yeast 2 cups warm water (110 degrees to 115 degrees) Pinch of sugar to feed yeast 1 teaspoon sugar

is heart month, so here’s a recipe that fills the bill for health but doesn’t sacrifice flavor. I like this stuffed into a whole wheat pita spread with mashed avocado and sprinkled with a little Feta. Olive oil ⁄2 cup red onion, diced 2 Roma tomatoes, diced 4 whole eggs 4 egg whites Palmful fresh dill, chopped, or 1 teaspoon dried leaves Salt and pepper


Rita’s Italian bread recipe is perfect for beginners.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Stir yeast in warm water, adding a pinch of sugar to “feed” the yeast. It’s ready when it looks foamy on top, a few minutes. Pour into mixing bowl and add sugar, salt and 3 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Pour in remaining flour and mix on low to form soft dough. On very lightly floured surface, knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes or so. It may be sticky at first, but will get smooth, like a baby’s bottom. Place in greased bowl,

turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 hour or so. Punch dough down. Divide in half. Shape each into a loaf. There are two ways to do this: Simply make loaf shape with your hands about 12 inches long, or roll dough into an approximate 12inch by 7-inch rectangle. Roll up tightly from long side, pinch seams to seal and place seam side down on sprayed or parchment-lined pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, 30-45 minutes.

If the indentation remains, the dough has doubled. For the second rise after shaping, make a small indentation in the dough near its side. If the dent remains, the dough is ready to bake.

Chess classic March 21-22 at PBS

Every week, approximately 300 students throughout Greater Cincinnati meet with the Cris Collinsworth ProScan Fund’s Queen City Classic Chess in Schools Program which launched in September. The students shake hands with an opponent, wish each other good luck, and engage in a friendly game of chess. Using three avenues, retired teachers, chess experts and a chess curriculum developed by the Cris Collinsworth ProScan Fund team, the chess in schools program is

teaching in 13 schools. Cris Collinsworth ProScan Fund is teaching chess as an after school program in the following schools: In Covington, Kentucky, Sixth District, Ninth District, John G. Carlisle, Glen O. Swing, in Cincinnati, John P. Parker, Ethel Taylor Academy, Mt. Washington, Roberts Academy, Mt. Airy, Academy of World Languages and Dater High School. In Dayton, KY, at Lincoln Elementary, Cris Collinsworth ProScan Fund Chess In Schools is teaching a pilot program

during the school day. Each week, Cris Collinsworth ProScan Fund teaches for 30 minutes to every second- and thirdgrader. In addition, Cris Collinsworth ProScan Fund is teaching at the Children’s Home of Cincinnati during the school day. The vision of Cris Collinsworth ProScan Fund Chess In Schools is to teach during the school day in all Greater Cincinnati schools so all children are exposed to chess. Chess provides a unique way for children to learn that there are

consequences for their actions, develop decision making skills, realize the importance of respect and good-natured competition, and enhance their reciprocal learning, which is best summed up by a well known idiom about chess: one minute you’re teaching your opponent something, the next, they are teaching you. The Queen City Classic Chess Program began 13 years ago with the QCC Chess Tournament. Now hosting more than 700 students from 10 different states, the QCC Chess


Tournament has become one of the largest scholastic chess tournaments in the Midwest. On March 21-22, the 13th annual chess tournament will take place at Paul Brown Stadium. Returning this year are grandmasters Maurice Ashley, Gregory Kaidanov and Irina Krush. Also returning is last year’s Shining Knight Award recipient, Rochelle Ballantyne who is on the road to becoming the first female African-American master chess player. Register before Feb. 21 for the early bird fee of

$35. From Feb. 22-March 14, registration is $50. Walk-in registrations are not accepted. Entry fee includes scorebook, pencil, medal, lunch and Tshirt. Friday night simul is $5 for tournament participants and $20 for nonparticipants. Doors open for the simul on Friday, March 21, at 5 p.m. Simul begins at 6:30 p.m. Saturday morning check in for tournament is 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. Matches begin at 9 a.m. To register or donate go to or call 1-866-772-4377.
