Township: Roads should be able to handle Hillview development

Some work to begin this year at Rybolt, Wesselman By Kurt Backscheider

GREEN TWP. — A proposal to

develop Hillview Golf Course into a subdivision with more than 200 homes could represent the resurgence of Green Township as a leader in residential growth in Hamilton County, but to many area residents raises concerns about increased traffic. The owners of the 18-hole golf course on Wesselman Road

have a deal to sell the property to a developer who would like to build roughly 240 single-family homes on the site. Debbie Keller, Goetzman who lives nearby on Wesselman Woods Drive, said she is a little disappointed the golf course is closing, but she’s not against development. “My only concern is the traffic on Wesselman Road,” she said. “The Wesselman and Rybolt (Road) intersection is quite the bottleneck already. Traffic in the mornings can be a headache.”

Keller said the existing road system does not support the existing traffic and there are many mornings she wonders if she’ll ever be able to make a left-hand turn from her street onto Wesselman. “With 240 more homes, there are going to have to be road improvements to support that,” she said. Paula Vickery, who also lives on Wesselman Woods Drive, said she too is worried about more traffic. Congestion in the area is especially troublesome during the morning rush hour and on Friday evenings, she said. “It’s a problem,” she said. “Something has to be done to

He said planned improvements to the Rybolt and Wessel-

man intersection this summer will alleviate many of the traffic issues. “There will be significant changes to the intersection this year,” he said. The road work includes some widening, the addition of four turn lanes and enhanced traffic signals, he said. Goetzman said the overall See HILLVIEW, Page A2

Green Township trustee bought house in Harrison Boiman closed on sale three days after being re-elected By Kurt Backscheider

GREEN TWP. — The board of trustees hope to appoint a replacement for Trustee Rocky Boiman soon. Boiman announced his resignation from the board in late January, stating his last day as a trustee would be March 1. According to the Hamilton County Auditor’s website, Boiman and his wife bought a home in Harrison Township this past November, but he said that’s not the reason he stepped down from the board. He still owns a home in Green Boiman Township and said he also owns property in Nashville, Tenn. and the Bahamas. Boiman said his resignation is due to advancements in his proRosiello fessional career coupled with the recent birth of his son. Since retiring from the NFL, he’s run a youth football academy and also does television and radio broadcasting for ESPN and WestwoodOne, and is a frequent guest on sports talk radio shows on Clear Channel’s WLW-AM (700) and WCKY-AM (1530). He said he’ll be hosting a sports talk show on WLW on Saturdays and Sundays during the upcoming Cincinnati Reds season. Township residents deserve a trustee who has the time to

Magic Johnson visits the West Side

By Kurt Backscheider

GREEN TWP. — It’s not every day an NBA legend visits the West Side. When basketball Hall-ofFamer turned entrepreneur Earvin “Magic” Johnson stopped by Mercy Health – West Hospital in Green Township on Tuesday, Feb. 18, folks were understandably quite excited. “We didn’t really promote Magic’s visit because his primary purpose is to meet with the dietary and food service employees,” said Mike Stephens, president of Mercy Health – West Hospital. “However, the enthusiasm has spilled over throughout the hospital.” Johnson visited the hospital

while he was in town to speak at the second annual Black History Month celebration presented by Mercy Health and Catholic Health Partners at the Duke Energy Convention Center. While at the hospital he toured the cafeteria and met with employees of SodexoMagic, a food services company that is a joint venture of Sodexo Inc. and Johnson’s company, Magic Johnson Enterprises. Mercy Health – West Hospital employs people from SodexoMagic. “We have an affiliation with his company to manage the food services here,” said John Pramuk, senior manager for Sodexo. “Magic and his team really get involved with the community. He wanted to walk through this beautiful new hospital and

say ‘Hi’ to folks.” After touring the cafeteria facility, Johnson posed for photographs with dozens of hospital employees and signed autographs for a handful of children who brought basketballs for the former Lakers star to sign. White Oak resident Carson Cantrell, 7, was one of the lucky children to get an autograph. “It was awesome,” he said. Although LeBron James is his favorite basketball player, Cantrell said it was still “amazing” to get to meet Magic Johnson. Cantrell’s mother, Gina, said it was very gracious of Johnson to talk to the children and sign autographs. “It’s nice to see someone of his magnitude take the time,” she said.

Oak Hills career expo aims to connect students with employers By Kurt Backscheider

Oak Hills High School is giving its graduating seniors an opportunity to meet with employers and possibly find jobs or internships. The high school is hosting its inaugural Highlander Job & Career Expo

impact of the subdivision on traffic will be minimal. “Single-family tends to be a relatively low traffic generator,” he said. “The existing road capacity should be able to withstand the additional development.” “This would be the first new single-family subdivision in the township in five years,” Goetzman said. “It signifies a resurgence of the market and also, quite frankly, it shows Green Township is still a viable single-family market that can compete.” Good schools, a convenient location, new

from 8:15-10:15 a.m. Thursday, March 27, in the school gym, 3200 Ebenezer Road. “Part of our mission statement at Oak Hills talks about career and college readiness for all students,” said Robert Sehlhorst, the district’s assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruchealth care facilities and planned new restaurants make the township an attractive community, he said. Plans call for singlefamily homes to be built on more than 101 acres. Goetzman said the proposal will require a zoning change. The property is zoned for a mix of single-family and multiple-family right now, and will be changed to strictly single-family zoning for the project. He said township officials will review the plans in April when the proposal goes through the zoning process at the county level. Paul Macke, president of the family-owned golf course, said Joseph Allen of Development Planning approached the golf

tion. “We want to build a bridge from the island of school to the world of work.” He said school leaders talk often with area business owners who have expressed a desire to hire young people who possess math competencies, strong work ethic and the course owners about a year ago to gauge their interest in selling. Macke said the last day of golf operation is anticipated to be April 30, and he expects the transaction to close by mid-May. “We want to give our customers an opportunity to come back out, play the golf course a couple more times, and that’s the reason we’re staying open,” Macke said. He said his parents and his uncle and aunt opened the golf course more than 44 years ago. Ten of his parents’11children worked on the course. His siblings Joseph, Andrew and Nancy remain owners of nearly 5,500-yard course. - Bowdeya Tweh contributed

ability to take direction and work in teams. The high school hopes to have 50 businesses and organizations represented at the expo, and Sehlhorst said they have 35 companies signed up to participate so far. Sehlhorst said the goal is to have at least 200 students land full- or part-

time jobs, internships, coops, seasonal jobs or volunteer positions. In conjunction with the expo, Sehlhorst said seniors will receive career training during their Tartan Time homeroom periods, where they will learn job application processes and tips for writing resumes and job interviews.

“I think it’s unique. I’m not familiar with any other high school in this area or the state that is doing this,” he said. “It’s very much aligned with our mission of career and college readiness for all students.”


Green Township Administrator Kevin Celarek said 25 people applied. He said Rosiello and Linnenberg interviewed candidates the week of Feb. 17. They discussed the candidates in executive session prior to the board meeting Feb. 24, but did not reach a consensus on who to appoint. Rosiello said he was impressed with the number of qualified candidates who submitted resumes. “It was gratifying and really overwhelming to see so many folks step forward for the township,” he said. “There is a tremendous amount of talent out there.”

A wide range of individuals with varying backgrounds and experience applied for the position, he said. He would like to appoint a candidate who has been involved in community or civic organizations, who has a wellrounded background and strong professional experience, he said. “It’s going to have to be someone with the right fit, and there’s certainly more than one person out of the 25 who applied who could be the right fit,” Rosiello said. “I’m confident we’ll have no problem finding a qualified replacement.”

I wanted to help out, I wanted to do a good job and help serve this township,” he said. Trustee Chairman Tony Rosiello and Trustee David Linnenberg will appoint a new board member to fill Boiman’s seat. The person appointed to fill the unexpired term will be required to run for election in November 2015 to retain the seat. The board accepted resumes from township residents interested in the position until Feb. 14, and

Upper Respiratory Tract Infections


is the season… Yo u r c h i l d i s hot, flushed, has no appetite, is listless, has diarrhea or vomiting, has a runny or congested nose and sounds like your Saint Bernard. OK, so it’s this flu thing - it has been “going around” you say. These words reverberate through our Centre every day. Some people take peace that other children are also afflicted. There seems to be some kind of safety in numbers it seems. The other thing that we as a society have been taught is that this child is sick.

Yes, absolutely! There is no question in our minds. This is “sickness” at its best. But wait… Let’s look at this in some detail. Your child has a fever. This is actually a good thing. It is your body’s way of literally “burning” the bug. It is also the result of all the necessary body activities kicked into high gear to fight for survival. All this extra work produces extra heat - Fever. It is that simple. At the same time, however, the eyes take on a glassy appearance - the result of being continually washed

with tears to cool down the cornea, which is very heat sensitive. In its wisdom, your child’s body may want to get rid of this germ really fast - diarrhea and vomiting comes to mind. There isn’t a quicker way! This is good! Yo u r c h i l d m a y b e competing with your Saint Bernard. It is simply another portal of exit for the germs that have invaded his body. Breathing and respiration also increase - your child literally exhales the invading organism faster. You’ll notice that the skin is moist and clammy - simply another method of exit for the bugs. At the same time, however, you notice that your child has no appetite. Even McDonald’s, his alltime fave gives him the heebie-jeebies. The reason is that his body energy is geared towards survival and is on emergency stand-by. There is no energy wasted digesting food.

You, by now, are probably thinking, “I didn’t know that.” There you have it - the logic behind the scenes. Pretty amazing isn’t it? In case you didn’t know this, your nervous system, that amazing computer-Internet complex that runs all of you, is responsible for all this marvellous activity. It is the system that causes your immune system to spring into action to protect you - any way it can. This is not “sickness.” It is an expression of health. It is your body doing exactly what it needs to do, in order to regain your health. I am not saying you have to like it, though, but it is, nevertheless, in your best interests. When your child is feeling like this, parents have the compulsion to intervene and interfere with this process u n k n ow i n g l y - c o u g h suppressants, anti-fever medication, antibiotics, etc.

We h a v e b e e n carefully taught that a child needs these drugs to be healthy. Nonsense! Your child simply needs no interference. There are a number of things you can do, however, to help your child while his/her body is “doing its thing”; A. H ave yo u r c h i l d checked by a chiropractor to make cer tain his ner vous system is functioning optimally so it can handle this “sickness” thing. B. High doses of Vitamin C. For a young child, I recommend 1000-2000 mg/day for a week. For adults, 5000-7000. C. Lots to drink. Water is best but kids don’t like it. You can use diluted fruit juice. D. Lots of rest and veg’ing out.

E. Echinacea in drop form in a bit of juice. Do for a week. F. Zinc lozenges. Use as a last resort. Taste awful for kids. In the event that your child is not improving on his own in a week, it means that his immune system is weak and crisis care may be needed. Call us.

Older homes can be a blessing and a curse. Grand old homes for sale in older neighborhoods often sit on the market, but does it have to be such a challenge to buy and restore one to its original grandeur? That question will be answered at the Wednesday, March 12, meeting of the Westwood Historical Society. Adam Sanregret and Karen Garrard, of Sanregret Team with Keller Williams Realty, along with Karen’s husband, Terry Garrard, will talk about trials and tribulations of home restoration, including how not to get in over your head. They speak from personal experience but also from the perspective of the real estate market. They will weigh in on balancing purism and practicality, and when to do-it-yourself and when to contract out as they share some of their adventures in historic restoration. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at Westwood First Presbyterian Church, 3011 Harrison Ave. All who are interested are welcome to attend.

Elder’s Conners finishes 6th in state wrestling By Tom Skeen

In his first trip to the Division I state tournament, Elder High School senior Jake Conners notched a sixth-place finish in the 152-pound weight class. Conners opened up the state tournament with a 5-2 victory, but lost10-5 in his championship quarterfinals match sending him to the consolation bracket. The senior rebounded with back-to-back victories, including a 6-0 decision over Lakota West’s Kevin Leonhardt, sending him to the consolation semifinals where he lost10-4 to to J.P. Newton of Perrysburg High School. In the final match of his Elder career, Conners wrestled for fifth place but was pinned at the 4:00 mark by Andrew McNally of Uniontown Lake High School. Fellow Panther Evan Morgan had a disappointing state meet. The senior lost his opening round match 8-7 at 138 pounds, but rebounded with a 7-3 win before bowing out of the tournament with a1-0 loss to Gavin Nelson of Oregon Clay High School. Morgan finishes his career with 126 wins, fourth most all-time in Elder school history. La Salle sent four wrestlers to Columbus, all making their first appearance at the state tournament. Freshman Corey Shie turned in the best performance locking up a fifth-place finish at 120 pounds. Shie won his first two matches before losing to eventual state champion Alex Mackall of Cuyahoga Falls Walsh Jesuit High School 17-9 in the championship semifinals. The freshman lost his next match 9-3 to Austin Assad of Brecksville sending him to the fifth-place match where Josh Heil defaulted the victory to Shie. Both freshman Eric Beck

and junior John Shirkey went 1-2 in their first trip to Columbus, while freshman Andrew Sams went 2-2. In perhaps the greatest single season in St. Xavier High School history, senior Joe Heyob won the Division I state title at 170 pounds to finish the season at 50-0. “I feel like I just finished a book,” Heyob said to Gannett News Service. “No, make it a chapter – a long chapter – because I have more to do.” Heyob - who will wrestle at the University of Pennsylvania next season - defeated Jesse Palser of Mansfield Senior High School 3-2 in an ultimate tiebreaker. “(Palser) was really strong in his upper body…. brute strength,” said Heyob of his opponent. “I just tried to lock up a leg and get the other ankle.” With the victory, Heyob became just the second individual state wrestling champion in school history and the first in 24 years. It was his ability to stay cool, calm and collected in front of 12,000-plus fans that helped him reach a goal that’s been four years in the making. “The environment here is so overwhelming,’’ Heyob said. “I just envisioned being back in my living room wrestling my brothers. I think the environment was the biggest factor I had to get out of my head.” Joe’s little brother was there to witness his state title. Ben qualified for state, but bowed out after suffering his second loss in round two of the consolation bracket 9-5 to Adam Salti of Olmsted Falls High School. Junior Cole Jones had an impressive tournament. Jones went 3-2 en route to a fourthplace finish at 195 pounds. Both Matt Kuhlmann (220 pounds) and Dakota Stephens (145) finished 0-2.

Mercy shows fight despite playing without leader By Tom Skeen

WESTWOOD — Without a heartbeat there is no life. Without Allie Ramsey, the Mother of Mercy basketball team looked lifeless for the first 16 minutes of their Division I district final game against Centerville March 1 at Harrison High School. Ramsey broke her foot in a win over Winton Woods Feb. 22, but without her nine points and, more importantly, her more than eight rebounds per game, the Bobcats were outmatched against the ninthranked team in the state throughout the first half. Mercy cut an 18-point halftime deficit down to five with less than seven minutes left in the game, but the Elks outscored the Bobcats 15-6 over the final five-plus minutes en route to a 64-50 win. “That first quarter we just let them take charge and you can’t do that in a game like this or any game,” coach Mary Jo Huismann said. Ramsey suited up for the second half, likely more for motivational purposes, but it wasn’t enough to get the Bobcats over the hump. “I just think Allie Ramsey is the vocal heart of the team,” Huismann said. “She doesn’t do everything right, but she tries like crazy and I think it just let the wind out when she

couldn’t play.” Mercy outshot the Elks, but were outrebounded 49-28, mainly due to the efforts of Centerville’s 6-foot-5 junior center Shannon Coffee, who finished with 24 points and 12 rebounds. “We had to slow her down,” Huismann said of Coffee. “Usually it takes three people to slow someone like that down. You don’t let her get the ball (and) you don’t let her go to this side or that side.” One bright side is Huismann was able to play and expose some of her younger players to Division I basketball at its highest level. “You see what type of intensity it takes and trying to tell kids that, they don’t understand that,” the coach said. “They aren’t going to experience any of that anywhere else.” The loss marks the end of the career for Emily Budde, who owns the school record for most three-pointers made in a single game, as well as the single season scoring average with the 17.1 points per game she averaged as a senior. “Talk about somebody that’s just done great this year,” Huismann said. “… She’s a pure shooter and she’s got her composure. She’s had a great career.” Budde is one of four seniors – Haley Dannemiller, Olivia Schad and Ramsey – who’ve

been playing together since their freshmen seasons. It’s a group Huismann is going to miss.

“They helped us build back up and we have some young kids and hopefully they learned from (the seniors).”



Oak Hills’ Chesney Finishes 4th all-around at state By Jarrod Ulrey Gannett News Service HILLIARD, OH — Considering she was a Level 9 competitor before quitting club gymnastics, Oak Hills senior Paige Chesney has been in her share of intense meets. Nevertheless, her first experience at the state meet Saturday at Hilliard Bradley was something that she knows she’ll never forget. With three scores better than 9.0, Chesney finished fourth all-around with a 36.5 behind Brecksville-Broadview Heights’ Alecia Farina (38.325), Macedonia Nordonia’s Monica Batton (38) and Lodi Cloverleaf’s Madeline Brandt (36.85). “This was my first time at high school state, and the energy is crazy,” Chesney said. “It makes

you excited. It’s really fun.” Chesney’s best performance came on floor, where she scored 9.275. She also scored 9.25 on vault, 9.025 on bars and 8.95 on beam. “I got my personal-best on floor and bars and tied for my personal-best on vault,” Chesney said. “I had a really good meet. It was a blast.” Chesney was one of four area gymnasts in the individual state meet.

COLUMBUS — What began as a dream a few months ago became reality for the Taylor boys bowling team when it advanced to the state tournament for the first time Feb. 20. The Yellow Jackets weren’t able to continue the consistent performance that helped them make state in just their fourth year as a program and in only their second year competing in the OHSAA postseason, but that didn’t put a damper on what they accomplished this season. Friday in the first Division II state tournament at Wayne Webb’s Columbus Bowl, Taylor finished 15th (3,002) of 16 teams in the qualifying round as the top eight moved on to the championship round. “At the beginning of the year we wanted to consider ourselves as underdogs, and then we’d say, ‘Why not us?’” said Jesse Barrett, who was one of six seniors in the program. “It’s really special having this group of guys. It’s an awesome experience for us just being in our fourth year as a program and being from a small community.” Senior Jake Hines led the Yellow Jackets by placing 23rd with a 593 series that included a 211in his second game. There were 99 bowlers who competed overall, with the top five making first-team allstate, the next five making second team and the 10th through 15th finishers making honorable mention. Senior Allan Henle didn’t play in the first game but bowled 202 and 179 for a 381 that left him 84th. Senior Keith Sickler, who was runner-up with a 652 at district, opened with games of 154 and 200

and didn’t play in the third game at state. “Jake Hines is the only one who came in solid," coach Daniel Vollrath said. "This group was scrappy. They fought tooth and nail all year and today a lot of it was being overwhelmed. Some of it comes on me because I didn’t really know what to expect. But we had six seniors, and that’s what makes this special.” Also scoring individually were Barrett (186), senior Brett Vollrath (167) and sophomore Adam Bailey (159). Rounding out the roster were senior Matt Wilhelm and junior Doug McKinney. “I wouldn’t say it was over-

whelming, but you know deep down inside that it was a little bigger stage than normal,” said Henle, who plans to attend University of Cincinnati with hopes of bowling. “Jesse was a four-year player. I was two years on varsity. Keith’s really carried us this year and Matt came in with some strong bakers. Brett bowled three years with me. I’m so proud of Jake because he had struggled but today he was one of the ones that kept us up. “We always made the joke that we were going to state this year, but once we got to district I think we all knew we could get to it. I wouldn’t say (getting to state) was expected, but we had high hopes.”

Unified Basketball not about winning, losing By Mark D. Motz

INDIAN HILL — Squeaking shoes were barely audible over fans squealing with delight. Players squealed gleefully, too, for that matter. More than 100 Hamilton County Special Olympians descended on the two gyms at Cincinnati Country Day School for Unified Basketball Day Feb. 20. The 16 teams of middle and high school players from Rapid Run, Harrison, St. Bernard and Oak Hills also included varsity companions from CCD and Oak Hills High

“When you have the kindergarten kids in here, you can barely hear yourself think. They get so excited to see these kids make a basket. They go crazy.” Ross said CCD began hosting the event after a former student and girls basketball player began volunteering with the Special Olympics. Unified Day used to take place at Xavier University, but limited court space meant long waits between games. Playing on a college campus didn’t attract many fans. “It was a great fit for us,” Ross said. “We’ve

School. The varsity players took turns officiating, playing, running clocks, operating scoreboards and simply cheering for their Special Olympic guests. Other CCD students came to the gyms to cheer the players, too. “This is our 10th year doing this,” said Greg Ross, Cincinnati Country Day assistant athletic director and interim boys basketball coach. “It’s really cool. They get to come here and play basketball all day and our kids get to work with them.

been happy to do it. It’s a highlight of our season every year.” CCD divides its two gyms into four full courts going side to side. Teams get three or four 15-minute games in a two-hour span. “You get to see how happy they are just to play,” said Sean O’Brien, a CCD sophomore. “It teaches you to appreciate what you’ve been given. I’m lucky to able to play every day. “It’s hard to imagine what these kids have to deal with every day, the challenges they face. They’re still happy every

time they make a shot. It makes it hard to have a bad day at practice when you think about these kids and what they have to do just to get on the court.” Oak Hills senior Andrew Chisholm agreed. “I think it’s great,” he said after refereeing a game. “The best thing is definitely the look on their faces after they make a basket. It’s pure happiness. I’ve learned they’re not worried about winning or losing. Sometimes it’s just about having fun.” And more. “Today is not about who wins and loses,” said Janet Smith, executive di-

rector of the Hamilton County Special Olympics. “It’s about giving these kids a chance to play for an extended period of time. It’s about working together with their unified partners. It’s about learning.” Smith said the fact CCD and Oak Hills work closely together on Unified Basketball Day is another positive. “I think it’s absolutely wonderful to have east and west together, private and public together,” she said. “It’s not about rivalries. It’s about coming together to do something good.”

St. X captain’s efforts help bring state ‘Victory’ in pool By Adam Turer

There are many reasons why St. Xavier High School has dominated Ohio high school swimming for decades, but the biggest key to the AquaBombers’ six straight Division I state championships and 15 titles in the last 16 years might come down to one simple practice: Belief. Believing in the program, the coaches, and one another has turned several ordinary swimmers into medalists and champions by the time they were seniors. Oliver Acomb, a St. Xavier senior from Delhi and Our Lady of Victory parish, is the most recent example of hard work turning a

explosiveness necessary to compete at the level he is currently competing.” After attending the state championship meet in Canton as a spectator to cheer on his veteran teammates, he made a commitment to himself that one day he would compete in Canton in late February. He began working out early mornings at the Powel Crosley Jr. YMCA and worked hard in the pool year-round. “Ollie is just one example of a swimmer who bought into the idea that ‘it’s not where you are, but the direction you are headed,’” said Brower. “He was motivated by his own improvement and a desire to help our team.” After being elected captain prior to his senior

struggling swimmer into a champion. After playing football in the fall of his freshman year, Acomb decided to join the swim team for the winter season. The AquaBombers do not make cuts, but do have three levels of practice groups based on skill and experience. Acomb was in the third group, and was an unassuming member on a stacked team. Nobody knew yet how much he would progress over his four years. “Ollie joined the team with the encouragement of others and wanted to be a part of something he had heard good things about,” said head coach Jim Brower. “As he matured, Ollie became a very good athlete and has the kind of

inspire the underclassmen the same way he was inspired as a sore, tired, freshman. After placing third in the 100-yard breaststroke and placing second as a member of the AquaBombers 200-yard medley relay at the district meet, Acomb realized his dream of competing in the state meet in Canton. He entered his final varsity meet on Feb. 22 knowing that he had one final chance to make his mark on the storied program. He shaved over a full second off of his breaststroke time from districts and placed fifth in the state with a personal-best time of 57.70. It was an emotional race, not just because it was his final laps as an

season, Acomb felt even more of a responsibility to encourage the underclassmen and continue the St. Xavier tradition of paving the way for the next class of state champions. According to Acomb, 17 of the 18 seniors on this year’s team began in Group 2 or 3 before working their way up to Group 1. He wanted to

AquaBomber. His fifthplace finish, after starting in eighth place, put his team in a position to clinch the championship with a fourth-place finish or better in the final relay of the meet. His teammates got the job done, and Acomb stood on a podium three years after cheering from the stands. “Ollie is well-liked and well-respected by all of the coaches and his teammates. He seemed to enjoy every step of the journey, and he truly cared about the team above his own ambitions,” said Brower. “He was elected team captain before he had a breakout season, and that says a lot about his character. We will miss him dearly.”

Union membership should be voluntary Just wanted to write a quick note of thanks to John Campolongo for making my point. As a member of a bargaining unit at Green Township, he and all the other public service employees (note: not police nor fire) have received exactly the same type of approach to their compensation and benefit issues over the last 25 years or so that both the unionized members of the police and fire departments. Belonging to a union should be a voluntary act and not a compulsory commitment. That is why I hope that he and all the other non-unionized employees of Green Township should support the effort this year in Ohio to bring the right to work legislation into effect. Unlike the failed Senate bill of 2011 which attempted to put severe restrictions on collective bargaining, the right to work simply supports an employee’s individual right to join a union and to pay membership dues voluntarily. That way, their dues will not be spent on issues that do not honestly represent the political opinions of those self same individuals. I have always respected the work of our public service team at Green Township. No one, union member or not, should consider their taxpayer funded job to be an entitlement that will last forever.

Of course they won't care as they have shown a growing disdain for the populace. They, the Republicans, are in office only to serve the wealthy minority and big business.” J.Z.

“Given that Cincinnati is a hotbed of Republican fervor and that Ohio is a key battleground state in every election, why not? Big conventions bring lots of money and attention. Even Democrats and independents should benefit from this. Bring it on. F.S.D.

“Sure! I am not Republican, but any time we can bring more money into Cincinnati, the better it is for our area. “Downtown is really booming these days, particularly Over-the-Rhine, and there are lots of venues for hotels and restaurants, as well as our convention center. I was so pleased with how the city supported the wonderful 'World Choir Games' and the city tru-

ly sparkled. “I imagine the security involved will be a headache, however, for those who work or live downtown, but perhaps the advantages will outweigh the disadvantages overall for the reputation of Cincinnati, which can use all the positive press it can get these days.” D.P.

“I don't consider myself partisan, but as someone who is politically engaged I can't help but respond to partisanship when it permeates one of the parties. “Twenty years ago the Republicans were telling their newly elected state representatives that they had to vote the party line or they would face major opposition in the next primary. Term limits have rubbed out most of the benefits of institutional memory and civility is now an endangered species in both Columbus and Washington. “If you look at the states with strong Republican lean-



ings, it is pretty much a list of the poor states. Ohio has long been right on the swing line. And Cincinnati is the most Republican urban area in Ohio. “If I were a Republican leader I would certainly want to see the convention come here. It will bring as much money into the area as any other large national convention, and a lot of excitement and interest which Cincinnati could play up for the long run. “As someone who would view the event with distaste, I'm not afraid of it. I don't think the current Republican party is capable of nominating someone who could win the national election, and until they learn to practice policies which unite rather than divide the people of this state and this nation, that will remain the case. N.F.

“I think a convention of that size would be a great thing for the economy.” Terry Garvin

“Hosting the Republican National Convention would be good for the city financially in 2016, and it would, more importantly, be a great opportunity for the progressive minded in the area to protest the Party of No once and for all on the national stage. “If it happens, I'll want to be downtown in that outside crowd.”

names to the history. You see, the plat of land the Western Wildlife Corridor is on is the Nicholas Fliehman plat, my great-great grandfather. He originally owned a great deal of property in Sayler Park and particularly along Hillside Avenue. In fact, in property records today, lots are still referred to as being part of the Fliehman subdivision. Irene Fliehman, Nicholas’ granddaughter, married Fred Paff and came to live on the property now referred to as the Paff property. His grandson, Jacob J. Fliehman, my grandfather, lived next door and next to that property lived my great grandfather and Nicholas’ son, Jacob W. Fliehman. There were many other Fliehmans in Sayler Park, as Nicholas had three children. Jacob W. Fliehman had a financial stake in the mine, owning access to it, working it in, and, unfortunately, dying in it when a sand bank collapsed on him in 1935. I am not sure if he is the “worker” that was mentioned in the article, or if that was another poor soul. My grandmother, Anna Westrich Fliehman, sold their house and property in the late 1960s after my grandfather



know Sister Ann, O.P., and I must stress O.P., because that determines how much she gets paid. Yes, those who don’t know it, nuns, are like government workers, their high-paying salaries are also set-up on a scale of self-progress, as determined by their superiors, and eventually God in heaven. Sister is retiring as Bayley’s director of pastoral care. Sister’s rare ability working with people, some as bull-headed as she, and those who learned not to get in her way, for the betterment of improving their souls, and the laughter she left with them, is second to none. Having known Sister Ann for a number of glorious years, I can continue to have fun with her, because she practiced her gift with professionalism, standing up for her (our) Christian beliefs with pen and example. Why I remember the time she balled me out for my wasting water dripping from a faucet! And, some of you might remember the time she took on a local politician for bashing the Sisters of Charity – leaving the political world dumbfounded and short on words! In a man’s world that took some you know what! Oops, before I get into a friendly scolding from Sister, might I remind everyone, Sister Ann is not intending on triple-dipping! Because of the many sacrifices she and her constituents have given us, their next reward will be in a place where most of us hope to ascend! May God bless you, and keep you in the palm of his hand. Thanks.

Police station needed where it is It is sad knowing that the headquarters of Cincinnati Police District 3 will be relocating. It had been suggested by residents of East Price Hill that the best solution would be to create an addition to the rear of the current building into the existing parking lot and relocate the parking lot to the west where the Dempsey Pool formerly stood. Purcell Avenue could have provided the necessary means of egress and the headquarters could have remained where it has for more than 100 years. The past city administration in their infinite wisdom (thank goodness Mr. Dohoney is no longer city manager) felt that it would make more sense to purchase property (instead of using existing city property at no cost) and build an entirely new building (instead of expanding off of currently used Police Department space). After a recent aggravated burglary attempt against my wife and 8-year-old son a block from the police station and the rapid response and apprehension of the three ignorant individuals, it is clearly evident the importance of retaining the D-3 Police Headquarters in its present location. I know our family is better because of its location and our family is forever grateful to the officers of Cincinnati Police D-3 for their handling of our situation.. I beg the new city administration to reconsider the former administration faulty decision.

Take advantage of articulation agreements to pursue college degree In today’s world the importance of being a lifelong learner cannot be overestimated. Each year the rate of change and expansion of knowledge accelerates, leaving us to consider whether it would be a good idea to return to school and complete a degree. The Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce issued a study in Maggie Davis 2011 that showed that education COMMUNITY brings real value RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST to earning power. An individual with a bachelor’s degree can expect to earn 84 percent more over their lifetime than a person with a high school degree alone. So what does it mean to you when you see an announcement that two colleges or universities have signed an articulation agreement? An articulation agreement is a formal understanding between the two institutions agreeing how they will accept credit towards specific degree programs. The articulation is advantageous to a prospective student because it provides exact information regarding courses that transfer credit towards specific degrees, taking the guesswork out of the transfer process.

5460 Muddy Creek Road Cincinnati, Ohio 45238 phone: 923-3111 fax: 853-6220 email: web site:

An articulation signals a student that the receiving institution is ready and willing to work with the student to get them to their goal of a complete degree. It also signals the student that the credits coming from the originating school are valued by the transfer institution and will be valued by employers after graduation. The College of Mount St. Joseph has articulations with Cincinnati State, Ivy Tech Community College, Chatfield and UC Blue Ash for various degrees utilizing the two-year associate degrees or coursework toward baccalaureate degrees from the Mount. The Mount also has an articulation with Miami University to allow a Mount math major to complete a master’s degree in computer science in five years. It is important for you as the lifelong learner to be aware of these pathways, since they can save you time and money as you are deciding how to continue your career progress and growth. As an adult learner myself, I can assure you that I have found that if you can dream it, you can do it. You are never too old, and it is never too late. Maggie Davis is the associate vice president for academic support at the College of Mount St. Joseph. She lives in Delhi Township with her family.

Give bottom of very large pot a good coating of olive oil. Over medium heat, add shallots and half the garlic. Cook a couple of minutes, don’t let garlic brown. Add mussels and turn heat to high. Stir well to coat and add rest of garlic, and wine. Cook about 5 minutes, or until mussels are opened. Sprinkle with parsley and tomatoes, and serve.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Stockpot or Dutch oven: What’s the difference? A stockpot typically is taller than a Dutch oven. A Dutch oven is shorter with more surface area on the bottom. They both can hold the same amount of food, depending upon the size. If you have to choose, choose the Dutch oven since it’s more versatile.

Farro with onions, garlic and cheese Farro is an ancient, healthy wheat whose history goes back thousands of years. It comes in several forms. Semipearled farro is what I use since it cooks quickly. This complex carbohydrate contains fiber, which helps lower cholesterol better than brown rice, and also helps the immune system, along with helping you feel fuller longer and with more energy. ⁄2 cup onion, chopped 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 cup semi-pearled farro 3 cups liquid (vegetable, chicken or beef broth) Romano or Parmesan cheese 1

Pour in 2 tablespoons or so of olive oil in a pan, and add onions and garlic. Cook for a few minutes until onions are soft. Add farro and cook until coated and smells fragrant, again about a few minutes. Add liquid, and cook partly covered until farro is done, about 25 minutes. It will taste chewy. Drain excess liquid if necessary and add salt and pepper. Sprinkle with cheese.

Usher in the Lenten season with Rita’s steamed mussels.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Tips from Rita’s kitchen Unpearled/hulled farro takes an hour to cook. Stir in frozen mixed vegetables with the farro. Add mushrooms with onions and garlic.

Can you help?

Round steak with red gravy. Anderson Township reader Holly Nance really wants to be able to make her mom’s round steak. Here’s what she said, so if you can help,

let me know. “My mother used to make a good round steak with a red gravy that we all enjoyed. She passed away right before last Thanksgiving and now I do not have that recipe of hers, as I know she made that from her head and nothing was written down. I do remember she said she cut the round steak into pieces, coated them with flour, browned it a bit in a large skillet and then later she poured ketchup all over it - that’s all I can remember!!! Can you help with this

one and fill me in on what you think would be the rest of this recipe? Surely there has to be a recipe out there similar to this. We would all like to carry on with this meal in our family.” Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator, Jungle Jim's Eastgate culinary professional and author.
