BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
No fireworks in Green Twp. July 3 concert also casualty of budget
The Green Township trustees have canceled the July 3 fireworks this year. According to an email from the township, the trustees made the decision to cancel the 2012 concert and fireworks due to budget constraints. Trustee David Linnenberg said he and the other board members have discussed the annual holiday event at length,
but the township cannot afford to host it in this economy. He said it costs the township roughly $29,000 to put on the display. Trustee Tony Rosiello said he and his wife enjoyed taking their daughters to the show each year, but he agreed the township should cancel it this summer as one of the ways the township is tightening its belt. “It’s the low-hanging fruit we have to start with,” Rosiello said. The email from the township
said resources need to be reallocated to make certain adequate funding is available for essential township services. Trustee Rocky Boiman echoed those sentiments. “With only so many discretionary dollars out there, we want to best use those funds for road improvements, police and fire,” he said. The email stated, “Hopefully, the July 3rd concert and fireworks event return in future years.” “We sincerely thank all the

businesses and residents who have shown their support over the years to make this event one of the highlights in Green Township. We also thank the many volunteers who have given up their holidays over the years and assisted the Township to put on this wonderful event,” according to the email. The township wrote in the email that if a business is interested in donating money to continue the fireworks officials “would be very interested in discussing a donation.”
Mark Burger and Hannah McKenna hope their academic team can repeat its winning performance from last year. The St. Antoninus School students are members of the eighth-grade academic team and have been preparing for the upcoming “It’s Academic” competition at La Salle High School on Thursday, March 8. The eighth-grade team is comprised of the same seven students who placed first in the seventh-grade competition last year, and they’re looking forward to the possibility of bringing home another first place win for St. Antoninus. “Winning last year was a lot

of fun,” Burger said. “It would be great to win again.” St. Antoninus social studies and science teacher Jerry Besse, who volunteers to coach the seventh- and eighth-grade academic teams each year, said this year’s competition
will pit 11 area grade schools against one another. The seventh-grade competition takes place Tuesday, March 6. Teams earn points by buzzing in and correctly answering a variety of trivia questions covering topics like math, religion, history, science and literature, he said. “It’s a very exciting competition,” he said. He’s been quizzing the St. Antoninus teams every day after school since the beginning of January to help them get ready for the contest. See ACADEMIC, Page A2
After 2011, the wettest year on record, produced repeated flooding along the Great Miami River, the 60-acre Cleves Community Park, which borders the river, it is in desperate need of a cleanup. Cleves invites all community members and organizations to join in the first annual “Cleves Community Park Clean-Up Day” from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. SaturStacy day, March 10. Volunteers are asked to check in at the shelter in the middle of the park to receive supplies such as gloves, bags and rakes and details on an age-appropriate task to complete. Refreshments and food will be provided to all volunteers. Dumpsters from Clift Contractors have been donated to haul away the debris. Mayor Danny Stacy said the debris from the many floods in recent months has left the Park in need of help before spring. “Cleves Community Park is a wonderful asset used by the residents of the Village of Cleves and many more in the surrounding areas,” he said. “We want to insure its safe and full use to the many groups and individuals who utilize it. “We are proud to be the home field for the Three Rivers Athletic Association baseball, softball and soccer teams, Cincinnati West Soccer Club, Westside Lacrosse as well as many other youth teams.” Cleves Community Park, formerly Gulf Park, is on Henderson Kupfer Road, which runs off U.S. 50.

Green Twp., Cheviot join on development district both agreed to the formation of the JEDD, he said, and Cheviot has already adopted its resolution approving the creation of the JEDD as well. He said the township must partner with a government entity that has a municipal income tax in order to establish economic development districts. Linnenberg “We have partnered with the city of Cheviot and they will administer it through their income tax program,” Hyle said. Green Township and Cheviot will divide the proceeds from the income tax, with Green Township slated to receive 80 percent and Cheviot receiving 20 percent, he said. The JEDD is projected to generate about $26,000 in revenue in 2012, and is projected to generate about $85,600 annually beginning in 2015 after the property has been built out. Green Township Trustee David Linnenberg said the JEDD allows the township to recoup some of the costs of development. “This money is used for road improvements, this money is used for improvements around the property,” he said. The township also plans to create a JEDD on the new Mercy Hospital property to help pay for the improvements associated
4300 HARRISON AVE. 574-9033
with that project, he said. Hyle said the tax attached to the JEDD at The Christ Hospital and Children’s Hospital site is a 50year tax that will expire in 2062. “We’re not permitted to put on a perpetual tax,” he said. The tax is capped at $100,000, meaning employees who earn more than $100,000 annually are taxed only on the first $100,000 they earn in a year. Cheviot Mayor Samuel Keller said the city appreciates its partnership with Green Township on the economic development districts. “It by no means solves all of our financial issues, but it’s obviously a step in the right direction,” he said. “Programs like this help us offset the funds the county, state and federal governments are taking away from us.” Keller said no one likes to levy taxes, but the JEDD is beneficial to both the township and the city. “We like to partner with our neighbors to the west. We have always worked well together,” he said.

Green Township will establish its second Joint Economic Development District with Cheviot. Township trustees approved a resolution Monday, Feb. 27, creating Green Township Joint Economic Development District II and authorizing a contract with Cheviot. A Joint Economic Development District (JEDD) allows a township to generate revenue by partnering with a municipality to collect income tax from a geographically limited property within the community. The JEDD township officials authorized Monday encompasses the site where The Christ Hospital and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center are constructing medical office buildings at the intersection of Harrison Avenue and Filview Circle. Green Township already has a JEDD with Cheviot on the property at Western Ridge, where Good Samaritan Hospital has its outpatient facility on Harrison Avenue. Frank Hyle, Green Township’s attorney, said the JEDD for the 20-acre site where The Christ Hospital and Children’s Hospital are building will place a 1 percent income tax on the earnings of employees who work at the medical offices on the property. “The property owners and the business operators are required to consent before we establish one of these,” he said. The Christ Hospital and Children’s Hospital have

School teams test their trivia knowledge
J.F. Dulles and Springmyer students participate in the Thinking Cap Quiz Bowl Fifth-grade students at Springmyer and J.F. Dulles elementary schools tested their trivia wits against other fifthgrade teams in the region in mid-January by participating in the Thinking Cap Quiz Bowl. The Thinking Cap Quiz Bowl involves the timed answering of 100 multiple-choice online questions in the areas of language arts, math, science, sports, history, geography, government and current events, as well as just plain fun trivia. Students were not allowed to have adult help with working the computer, pronunciation of words, or explanation of meaning for the questions. Each question offered five possible answers. A timer counted down from 60 seconds once the question appeared. If the students could answer in the first four seconds they received a five point bonus. Bonus levels
dropped with time, so the quicker the students could decide on the team's answer, the more it benefited them. Dulles finished third in the region with a score of 1171. Springmyer finished eighth with a score of 1116. “The remarkable thing to watch was the kids working together as one unit. They had to decide on the answer to the question as quickly as possible,” said Gifted Intervention Specialist Virginia Sharpe. “These groups were not only well organized with a system to derive a quick response, but they were able to quickly let innocent mistakes made by peers be forgotten and move forward.” A follow-up nationwide competition will be held at the end of April. Sharpe predicts both teams will finish the national competition with an impressive score. For more information about the Thinking Cap Quiz Bowl visit www.thinkingcapquizbowl.com.

Mustangs end season with resiliency Second round loss leaves team at 14-8

ELDER WRESTLER SECOND IN STATE Rahkim Johnson improves on fifth place finish from last season By Tom Skeen firstname.lastname@example.org
PRICE HILL — Elder senior wrestler Rahkim Johnson was looking to build on his fifth-place finish last season at the Ohio High School Athletic Association State Tournament. He did just that with a secondplace finish. This season, Johnson is at 220 and finished the season with a 36-2 record while racking up a sectional and district championship. At state, Johnson rolled right into the championship semi-finals after slim 3-2 victory in the opening round and a 7-4 win in the quarterfinals. In the semi-finals he faced a familiar opponent in Josh Ransom from Madison High School. Earlier in the season at the Brecksville Touranment, Ransom knocked off Johnson in the finals to claim the 220-pound title. This time around, it was Johnson exacting revenge and pulling out a 3-2 victory in an ultimate tiebreaker to advance to the state finals. In the finals, Johnson faced Ty Walz from the powerhouse Lake-

wood St. Edwards and went down 2-1 to earn his best finish at state as a Panther. It was one special season for Johnson. In Johnson’s first two matches at sectionals, he pinned his opponents in an average of 37 seconds. At districts, Johnson coasted to the final with a pin in the firstround in 1:42 and decisions of 7-2, 11-6 and 5-2 over Greater Catholic League rival Chalmer Frueauf from Moeller in the final who placed fourth in state last season. Senior Tyler Hardke was hoping to out do his fifth-place finished from last year as well. After making the leap from 152-pounds to 160 this year, the senior went on to a 35-2 record, including sectional and district championships. His victories in the postseason have included three major decisions and two pins through districts, including a 3-2 decision over Nick Corba of
Beavercreek High School who finished fourth at state last season and defeated Hardtke in the first-round at state the same year. His performance at state wasn’t what the senior had hoped for. Hardtke was victorious in his first match with a 6-4 victory over Logan Paul of Westlake High School. In the quarterfinals, he was knocked off 3-1 sending him to the consolation bracket. There the senior was eliminated from the tournament after a 3-1 loss to Tyler Arrendale of Massillon Perry High School. “I feel so bad for the kid,” coach Dick McCoy said. “He put tremendous time into the sport to be the guy he is and sometimes it doesn’t work out. He got hurt in the final round of his first match and he just wasn’t the same kid. You can’t bring your B-plus game here, you have to bring your Agame.”
The 2011-12 Western Hills Boys basketball season can be defined as “persistent, resilient, and determined.” In the first two rounds of the OHSAA Tournament, the Mustangs put it all on the line. In the first game, the Mustangs took on a Lakota East team, a young team that struggled and finished with only eight wins. West High won with a last second basket 51-50. The Mustangs were able to get to the Thunderhawks early in the paint with Charles Clark grabbing five rebounds and four points in the first six minutes of the game, as Western Hills took a five point lead with just under two minutes left in the first. This would be the largest lead the Mustangs would have all night. East took their first lead halfway through the second quarter at 17-15. Trailing by one at half, the Mustangs were looking for someone to step and get them back in the game. Senior forward Keevin Tyus began to take charge in third quarter after a tough first half. Tyus scored all 10 of his points in the second half, including six in a threeminute span that cut the Thunderhawk lead from five to one. Western Hills tied the game at 39 with a Floyd Lee free throw with 5:45 left in the fourth. East looked like they had the game in the bag with a three point lead with 11 seconds left. A Lionel Hill basket cut the lead to one with 4.5 seconds left. The Thunderhawks followed this with a timeout, but on the ensuing in bounds they could not hit an open teammate and were called for five seconds. Enter Tyus again, he fakes out the defender, receives a pass from the left block, and lays it nicely off the glass. The Thunderhawks scrambled did not have enough time to get off a shot. Hill led the Mustangs with 16 points and Clark added 12 points and 12 rebounds. After defeating East, the Mustangs facee the Walnut Hills Eagles who stood at 18-2 for the year. This game was a grudge match from the opening tip and Western Hills gave the Eagles everything they could

The Mustangs built its lead to 26-22 when Lee hit a nice running lab from the left block with 6:30 left in the third. Walnut Hills ended the quarter strong and took a 3534 going into the fourth quarter Walnut Hills prevailed 54-42 and advanced to the Sectional Finals.

GREEN TWP — All athletes want to go out on top in their respective sport. For Mercy senior Amy Feie and Oak Hills senior Ben Gourley, that opportunity was at their feet as they performed at the Ohio High School Athletic Association State Tournament March 2-3. Feie turned in a 27th-place finish to close out her Bobcat career on the lanes. “She was a little let down because she didn’t do better,” coach Mike McDonald said. “She knows she’s had a great year and a great

career and she is happy about that.” She finished her senior year with career highs in game average (195.6), high game (265) and high series (468). She finished fourth at sectionals and helped her team to a first-place finish. At districts, she finished with a 589
to grab the final qualifying spot by three pins. “It means a lot (to go to state my senior year),” Feie said. “I wish we could have went as a team, it would have been a lot more fun but having another teammate there makes it better. But it’s really cool to finish my bowling career out like this.” The senior helped her Bobcats to back-to-back Greater Girls Cincinnati League titles and will leave Mercy as one of the school’s all-time best bowlers.
Gourley got his career rolling as a junior. He led the Greater Miami Conference in average with a 220.7 and rolled a 300 game versus Mason. “I started bowling around (the age of) 3,” Gourley said. “Bowling is one of the biggest things in my life.” As a senior his average was 210.9. Gourley was the only local boys representative at state. The senior struggled in his first game rolling a 128,and never recovered posting a 74th-place finish. “It was a great feeling (representing the area), but it kind of puts a lot of pressure on you and kind of makes you be more careful,” Gourley told Gannett News Services. “It was a good experience.” In his final two games, he
rolled a 178 and 164, respectively, to finish with a 470 series. “(State) is probably one of the greatest accomplishments in my opinion because I’ve always wanted to do something with bowling,” Gourley said. “You kind of always wonder if you are going to get the chance to do something with it, then when you are put in the spot and you get to go to something like state it is just amazing.” Mercy’s Sabrina Weibel is experiencing things as a sophomore that most hope to achieve by their senior year. In her first appearance at state, Weibel notched a 36thplace finish. “I was hoping we could go with the whole team,” Weibel said. “But it’s still an honor to go as an individual.”

From the age of 4, Oak Hills senior gymnast Leah Dolch has had the natural ability to do things that most gymnasts would beg for. “I was her first coach at age 4,” coach Jennifer Dillenburger said. “She was amazing at the age of 4. I told her mom as much as I want to keep her it’s not fair.” After leaving Dillenburger, Dolch went on multiple gymnastic academies to continue her career and improve her skills.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Too much hot air
I’m not sure it is the end of Black History month or the ongoing presidential primary that has gotten me to pen this letter. Or, perhaps it has been the ongoing banter of the usual suspects in their letters to the editor. But in order to try to bring all three together, I would offer the following. There is a Democrat president that has actually proposed a budget and that actually resulted in a surplus for that fiscal year. He is also known for his deal making both with his own party and the opposition Republicans as well. In fact, he also successfully negotiated with a Republican Speaker of the House to reform welfare as it was formerly known. And, he was often referred to by some of his own party as “our first black president”. So, why can’t President “no
budget” Obama and Speaker John Boehner reprise the days of President Bill Clinton and Speaker Newt Gingrich? Answer, too much hot air in too small a room with too many big egos on both sides of the aisle. Steve Grote Green Township
Obamacare cannot co-exist with the medical structure we have today and the administration’s mandate on the Catholic Church is a prime example why. To President Obama, choice is iniquity. In Cincinnati we have a choice of hospitals; University, Christ, Good Samaritan to name just a few. The fact that we have a choice makes all the hospitals better. That’s how capitalism works. When a friend’s 32-year-old son developed colon cancer and had no insurance, Christ Hospital treated him under
goodwill; part of their mission statement. Contrast that with the socialized system of England. In England there are no religious hospitals. Once the only game in town is big government you play by their rules. When another friend’s 28year-old daughter, who is a citizen of England, found a lump in her breast the first available appointment was in nine months. If she had been 68 she would not have gotten an appointment at all. Obama named Donald Berwick to head Medicare. He is a fan of England’s system, especially rationing for older people; he calls it, “rational collective action overriding individual self-interest.” To error is human, to put America on this path of destruction requires uninformed Democrats.

Ohio needs flexibility to help workforce development From the moment the 129th General Assembly was sworn into office, the primary focus has been job creation. Although we have seen unemployment in Ohio drop slightly below the national average, our job climate is still not where it needs to be. In order to help the private sector create jobs, the General Assembly has reached out to job creators from around the state to find out what their needs are and how we can become a better partner in providing long term meaningful employment to Ohioans. Not long ago, the Ohio House of Representatives created a special ad-hoc committee that focused entirely on workforce development. The committee included members from both parties, who traveled to every corner of the state and heard from representatives of various industries. On the positive side, employers noted that they are
starting to see consumer demand rise, which provides them the incentive to begin hiring new workers. The Louis terhar COMMUNITY PRESS downside, however, is GUEST COLUMNIST that Ohio does not currently have enough skilled workers to fill positions in the manufacturing and high-tech sectors – industries that are vital for our transition into a 21st century economy. Further, the committee discovered that the federal government could be a better partner in improving workforce development. The Workforce Development Act of 1998 was intended to help state’s target specific areas of need and provide the financial assistance to help train workers to fill positions. Unfortunately, we have
found that the Workforce Development Act is highly outdated and inefficient. It has not been reauthorized since its passage and has resulted in duplication of services. In order to better train our workers, Ohio needs a unified system that creates, collects, and reports strategic performance metrics of workforce development efforts. The state also needs more flexibility in establishing criteria for eligibility of workforce development programs. As a member of the House Small Business and Economic Development Committee as well as the Commerce and Labor Committee, I am committed to working with my colleagues to achieve greater independence and more flexibility to partner with the business community to target specific areas of need. I encourage anyone who has ideas on how we can better improve our job-creation

efforts to contact my office. While we still have a long way to go, I am confident our economy will continue to improve if we can provide workers with the skills needed to excel in a 21st century economy. I want to assure you that the General Assembly is being proactive on this issue and will aggressively support the ability of Ohio workers to share in the benefits of the improving economy.

Success stories in the making
Is it possible to improve individual lives and change entire neighborhoods at the same time? St. Peter Claver Latin School for Boys in Overthe-Rhine has been doing just that for nearly 11 years! Its founder, Father Al Lauer, thought the best way to accomplish this mission would be to focus on education for boys 6 to 14 years old. This training would not only change the direction of their own lives, but through their example and leadership would have a positive impact on those who would follow in their path. As board president, i am pleased to report that we

Having come from a difficult family situation and a less-than-stellar first two years of school, Roger was already at a critical crossroads in his young life when he entered St. Peter Claver school.

Mom’s salmon patties perfect for Lent Our friends down the road, Bert and Bob Villing, just planted the first of their spring crops: carrots, peas and spinach. This makes me literally itch to get the garden tilled. Talk about spring fever! The watercress in our little spring-fed pool is spreading Rita by leaps Heikenfeld and bounds, RITA’S KITCHEN and the maple trees are budding out. The herb garden still looks pretty forlorn, though. Chickweed is taking over so I’ll have to do some serious weeding. But all’s not lost: Our “girls”/chickens love chickweed. Did you know that chickweed is highly nutritious? I like to add it to salads. Just make sure it’s clean, without pesticides, etc.
Heritage house dressing
The former Heritage Restaurant on Wooster Pike holds many good memories for me, since that’s where my husband, Frank, and I met and worked. Their house dressing was the most popular dressing. I’ve had
many requests for it over the years. So I went to the source: Proprietors Howard and Jan Melvin, who were gracious enough to share the recipe. It has an interesting history. Howard told me the original recipe was from the Netherland Plaza Hotel and it was a quantity one. Jan and chef Jerry Hart developed a recipe for the home cook. I’ll have to warn you – it makes quite a lot, but you’ll be happy to have it on hand. It reminds me of an elegant Caesar-type dressing with a bit of a bite. I’ve adapted the recipe only slightly. And yes, it uses raw eggs. That doesn’t bother me. I don’t think you could substitute pasteurized whites since this recipe contains yolks, as well. Check your local grocer to see if they carry pasteurized whole eggs if you are not comfortable with using raw eggs. Go to taste on seasonings. ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese 1 tablespoon cracked black pepper 1½ teaspoons each ground black pepper and salt 1 tablespoon granulated dried garlic ¼ cup each water and red wine vinegar Up to 2½ teaspoons fresh lemon juice
My mom never measured and she used regular breadcrumbs, so use them if you like. Go to taste on onion and celery. 1 can salmon (I used pink salmon) 1 egg, lightly beaten 1 ⁄3 cup each finely diced onion and celery ½ cup panko breadcrumbs Salt and pepper to taste
Drain salmon and mix everything together lightly. Form into patties and fry in olive oil over medium heat until brown on both sides. Nice sides are fried potatoes and mixed vegetables.
Rita's mom's salmon patties are pictured with fried potatoes and mixed vegetables. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD. Up to 1 teaspoon hot sauce 1 teaspoon Worcestershire 2 large egg yolks 1 large egg 2 cups vegetable oil
Combine Parmesan, peppers, salt and garlic and set aside. Combine water, vinegar, lemon juice, hot sauce and Worcestershire and set aside. Combine yolks and eggs in mixer. Whip on medium high until very thick. Mixture will be light lemon colored. Jerry’s note said “and we mean very thick.” With the whip attachment still on, turn to high and slowly, in a thin, thin, stream, pour half the oil in. When egg mixture has taken half the oil, add all dry ingredients. Continue adding the rest of the oil, alternating with liquid ingredients, until all

Women’s center hosting programs for teen girls By Kurt Backscheider firstname.lastname@example.org
The Women’s Connection is offering a few new programs for teen girls in the coming weeks. The neighborhood center will host two more new workshops for girls ages 13 to 18. “The workshops are part of the Girls’ Night In program whose goal is to assist girls in becoming strong, independent women,” said Aimee Shinkle, marketing and development coordinator for The Women’s Connection. Girls’ Night In programs help teens gain knowledge about relevant topics like peer pressure, dating and relationships; acquire skills for healthy living and making good choices; be enriched by a variety of cultural activities and learn the importance of teamwork, cooperation and community service, Shinkle said. All workshops will take place from 6-8:30 p.m. on Thursdays at the organization’s Learning Center, 4022 Glenway Ave. The organization’s annual Prom Princess program will be the second workshop, taking place on
Thursday, April 12. Shinkle said girls will have the opportunity to pick out a prom dress and accessories, and they will also discuss issues commonly associated with prom season, such as peer pressure, personal safety and substance abuse. Space is limited for the Prom Princess program and pre-registration is required. The third workshop is scheduled for Thursday, May 3. Girls who attend will take part in a program called “The Poetry Cafe – Positive Women Performing Positive Poetry.” The moving workshop will inspire girls through the power of spoken word poetry, as women share their personal stories covering topics to include healthy self-esteem, education, teen parenting, domestic violence and physical, emotional and sexual abuse, Shinkle said. The poetry is presented in the spirit of empowering, educating and inspiring young women to heal and reach their full potential through creative arts, she said. For more information, or to register for one of the workshops, contact
April Kandil at 471-4673 extension 15, or via email at email@example.com.

Be cautious when giving dogs chicken jerky In an effort to reward their dogs, many people give them little treats. But the Food and Drug Administration is cautioning about products containing chicken jerky, including chicken tenders, strips or treats. More than 350 dogs have reportedly become ill after eating these items – and some have died. Joetta Caudill-Metzger of Alexandria recently lost her 6-year-old miniature schnauzer, Molly. “I’ve been buying these dog treats because she loved them. They were chicken jerky and I thought, ‘OK, this is great.’ My dog loved these treats so when she’d been a good dog I said, ‘Oh, you’ve been

But, Caudill-Metzger says, “She’s been getting more of them lately. Before, it was like one or two. For the last month or so I’ve given her one every day.’ Suddenly she started getting lethargic, then she got sick to her stomach and she started lying down.” Molly was then taken to

the vet to be examined. “The vet said she’s already shut down 75 percent. I don’t want anybody else who owns a dog to go through what we’re going through right now. It’s heartbreaking because a dog is your child,” CaudillMetzger said. The vet says Molly died of kidney failure and he suspects it was caused by the chicken jerky. The maker of that brand of dog food says it has a program to ensure the safety of its products. The FDA first issued a cautionary warning about these products back in 2007. Despite exhaustive testing, the FDA has not found any contaminant in the Chinese-made products that could cause any illness. None of the chicken jerky products have been recalled. The FDA says these products should not be substituted for a balanced diet and are intended to be fed only occasionally and in small quantities. Caudill-Metzger says she
was cutting in half the treats she had been feeding Molly. Natasha Beranek of Fairfield wrote me that she too had been feeding her small dog one to two chicken jerky treats each day, per the weight guidelines on the back of the package. But her dog also became sick and was put on a diet of sensitive stomach food and capsules by her vet. “I have now abstained from giving her her beloved chicken jerky treats,” Beranek says. David Best of Batavia wrote to say his small dog also died after eating these treats and he would like to see the items pulled from store shelves. He has another dog and writes, “After seeing your story on TV we threw out the bag of these treats I had just bought.” Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

By Kurt Backscheider firstname.lastname@example.org
Ed Miller has put a great deal of time and energy into providing the community with affordable, family-friendly entertainment. For nearly four years the Green Township resident worked to renovate the historic Parkland Theatre in Sayler Park, transforming it into the Parkland Theatre & Entertainment Centre. “This is kind of my community service project,” Miller said. “We’re just trying to create a place for clean fun and family entertainment.” Touted as the oldest operating movie house in Cincinnati, the Parkland has a long history dating back to a time before motion pictures even existed. The theater, which stands at the corner of Parkland and Twain avenues, was built in 1881 as a venue for vaudeville shows, and it was later converted to a silent movie house in the 1920s. “My great-grandparents had their first date here,” said Miller’s son, Eric, who works at the theater for his dad on occasion. Ed Miller bought the place in 1997 from his uncle, Bill Bauer, who had owned it since 1959. “My uncle put in the bar in the front,” Miller said, referring to the Parkland Grill still open in front of the theater. “But I basically gutted

everything else.” Designing all the renovations on his laptop, the information technology consultant by day conducted a complete upgrade of the building. He installed a new neon marquee sign, painted the exterior, replaced the roof, expanded the theater’s concession area to include a small kitchen for preparing hot food, put in a new heating and air conditioning system, re-did the floor in the theater, fitted it with 80 leather seats set up stadium style and installed a high-tech lighting and sound system. “We did all the work during the weekdays so we could still be open on the weekends to show movies,” he said.
Green Township resident Ed Miller has completely renovated the Parkland Theatre in Sayler Park. He's installed a high-tech lighting and sound system inside the movie theater, allowing him to host birthday parties and special events when he's not showing films on the screen. KURT BACKSCHEIDER/THE COMMUNITY PRESS
Miller takes pride in his theater being a place for families, and the investment he made in renovating the building is not reflected in his prices. Movie tickets are only $3 and nothing on the menu at the concession stand costs more than $3 – in fact most items are $1. “You can see a movie and get a pop and a bag of popcorn for $5,” Miller said. The family friendliness doesn’t end there. A devout Catholic, Miller refuses to show “R” rated movies at the Parkland. “We have a lot of families who come here,” he said. “They appreciate the affordability and the fact we don’t show movies with racy content.” The Parkland shows movies on Fridays, Satur-
days and Sundays, and the theater is available for rental when movies aren’t airing on the big screen. With the ability to present a laser light show, complete with bubbles and fog effects, Miller said the theater is great for a variety of parties. He’s hosted birthday parties, scout groups, church groups and family reunions. He said people can also play video games or watch big sporting events on the theater’s 22-feet by 15-feet screen. “I love when we have a school group of 60 kids in here, and they go crazy when we turn on the music and laser lights,” he said. “That energy is really cool.” Visit www.parklandtheatre.com for more information.
