BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Westwood Square would help renew business district

Square would feature green space By Kurt Backscheider kbackscheider@communitypress.com

Community groups in Westwood are looking into the possibility of developing a civic square in the heart of the business district. Westwood Square would be a neighborhood square featuring green space and streetscapes at Harrison, Epworth and Urwiler avenues – one of Westwood’s main gateways. Cincinnati City Council’s budget and finance committee voted Monday, March 18, to allocate $10,000 from Westwood’s tax increment financing district to fund the pre-development and design phase of the project. Westwood resident John Eby, a founder of Westwood Works, said the Westwood Square proposal is the result of the city’s new Form-Based Code initiative and an urban design workshop that took place last fall in which mem-

bers of Westwood Works and other community groups discussed plans for redeveloping the business district. “It’s just an idea, but I think it’s a really good idea,” Eby said. “It’s transformative, it’s exciting and it’s something that could really help the business district.” Westwood is one of four city neighborhoods that volunteered to implement the new Form-Based Code, which is an alternative to conventional zoning that supports walkable neighborhoods. Cincinnati Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls has been working with neighborhoods throughout the city since 2008 to use the tool for spurring neighborhood revitalization, and she supported the budget and finance committee ordinance to spend $10,000 to look into what would be required to develop a Westwood Square. “This is the first concrete step in implementing the community’s vision for a great civic space that will attract residents and visitors

and better support business development in the district,” Qualls said in a released statement. City Council delayed a vote on paying for the feasibility study Wednesday, March 20, at the request of the Westwood Civic Association. A letter sent out by the civic association said the group isn’t for or against the civic square proposal, but it would like more information about the plan and wants more residents and business owners to provide input. Eby said he agrees with bringing more people into the fold and making sure all the community groups do their due diligence on the proposal, and he hopes everyone can come together soon to discuss the plan. “Hyde Park has a square, Mt. Lookout has a square, Oakley has a square,” he said. “They’re all really nice. “This is an idea to help transform our business district, and it needs to be fleshed out by the entire community,” Eby said.

Students in the marching band at Oak Hills High School always represent their school with pride. Now the band members will have even more pride in their steps when they take the field at football games, march in parades and perform at other community events. Thanks to the Oak Hills Band Association, the marching band has new uniforms for the first time in more than 20 years. “It’s been a long time coming,” said Kris Smith, president of the band association. “The kids are all very excited. This is a huge thing for them.” Smith said this is her 11th year volunteering with the band association. She has two sons who were in the band when they were at Oak Hills, and her daughter is a senior majorette in the band this year. She said the band association has been saving money to buy new uniforms for several years, and last summer they launched the “Keeping the Pride Alive” fund-raising campaign to make the dream of new uniforms a reality for students. “My goal was to make sure these uniforms were bought this year,” she said. “We’ve fulfilled it.” The volunteer group of parents raised more than $110,000 to buy 200 new uniforms for the band, Smith said. Oak Hills music teacher and band director Larry Welsh said his students have been eagerly anticipating the new threads. He said students know they’re representing Oak Hills when they put on the red and black uniform, and as a result they respect the uniforms and take great care of them. “It’s a tradition that has been passed down from class to class,” he said. The tradition of respect has helped the band keep its uniforms in good condition for 22 years, which Welsh said is more

This is an artist’s rendering of the new uniforms the members of the Oak Hills High School marching band will wear.

than twice as long as the average lifespan of a band uniform. “Twenty years is a long time to make a band uniform last,” he said. “Our students wear these uniforms at least 35 times per year for different performances in the community.” Band association member Alan March said the new uniform is a nice blend of modern styles and old Oak Hills traditions. As in the past, he said the uniform includes two pairs of pants – one white and one black, and the new uniforms also now have two different color hat plumes. There is a traditional black plume and a new red plume, he said. March said Oak Hills’ trademark red and black Cunningham plaid cape remains an essential part of the uniform. “The tartan cape is something Oak Hills is known for,” he said. It’s an exciting time for the band and the band association, and he said he was happy to be involved with the uniform campaign. “The band program at the high school is terrific and it represents the Oak Hills community very well,” March said.

Oak Hills corresponds with Germany By Kurt Backscheider kbackscheider@communitypress.com

Students at Oak Hills High School have connected with people in Germany the old-fashioned way - through written letters and postcards. A group of students in German III classes at the high school recently sent postcards to people throughout Germany, and dozens of folks in Germany have written them back. German III teacher Rob Vaske said the class project coincided with a chapter students were studying about communication. “Many young people today communicate through text messages, social media and emails,” he said. “We went old school. The students learned how to correctly address a letter.” The project also falls in line with the high school’s mission to ensure students are globally aware and to encourage them to investigate the world, recognize various perspectives, communicate ideas to diverse groups and take action, he said. “This was part of the

Some of the postcards students at Oak Hills High School received back from people they wrote to in Germany are displayed in a hallway at the school.

taking action step,” Vaske said. The 85 students in German III classes went online to find German telephone books and each selected one person in Germany to whom they sent a postcard. Vaske said many students wrote to Germans who have the same last name as them or their relatives. “About two weeks later postcards started coming back from Germany,” he said. “A lot of the Germans

were pretty shocked to receive postcards from American students, but they were glad to participate.” Tyler Wernke, an Oak Hills sophomore from Green Township, said he wrote to a man named Albert Wernke in Emsdetten, Germany. The Wernke in Germany wrote back and said he’s an 84-year-old retired technician. “I wasn’t expecting any of them to write back,” Tyler Wernke said. “I

thought it was really neat to connect with the Germans and learn about what they do in their free time and what their professions are.” Sophomore Nina Mazza, also of Green Township, said she wrote to a woman named Ursula Ruthmann. Mazza said Ruthmann is her grandmother’s maiden name. Ursula Ruthmann wrote Mazza back, telling her she’s 67 years old, she frequently rides her bike to visit her mother and volunteers to read to kindergartners in the local school. “It was really cool she took the time to write back,” Mazza said. “Even though they’re from a different part of the world, you can still share a connection with them.” Senior Felicia Nelson, a Delhi Township teen, said she’s glad she and her classmates wrote to adults instead of students. She said the people who wrote back did so because they were interested, not because they were instructed to write back by a teacher. “They were genuine,” she said. “They wrote back the way they were

raised to respond.” Vaske said postcards from Germany show up at the high school almost every day now, and his students are excited to see who wrote back. He said some of the Germans have even reached out to students via email and Facebook, and one man, who is a musician, sent his CD to the student who wrote him. “It’s really been a great experience,” Vaske said.

Cheviot officials go to jail to raise cash Money raised during the benefit will go toward the purchase of equipment for the police and fire de-

By Kurt Backscheider kbackscheider@communitypress.com

Cheviot — The Cheviot Eagles are planning to lock city officials in jail. Members of Cheviot City Council, along with Mayor Samuel Keller, Safety Service Director Tom Braun, Police Chief Joseph Lally and Fire Chief Robert Klein, are being “arrested” and locked away as part of a fundraiser the Cheviot Eagles are hosting. The group’s Cuffs and Ladders benefit is set for 5 p.m. Saturday, April 6, at the Eagles lodge, 3807 Glenmore Ave.

partments. Irene Viltrakis, a Cheviot resident and Eagles member, said the organization believes in supporting the community, and there is no better way to do that than by helping the city’s first responders. “These guys have to be protected,” she said.

“How can we expect them to protect us if we don’t provide the equipment to protect them?” Klein City officials will be locked in a jail at the Eagles lodge from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Viltrakis said they’re each responsible for raising bail money to be released from the jail. “We wanted to make it fun and do something different than your typical festival or fundraiser,” she said. “I thought it

would be cute to arrest all the council members and the two chiefs.” She said they won’t be required to raise a specific amount of money to be released, but she’s hoping they’ll each be able to raise at least a couple hundred dollars. The Eagles would like to raise as much money as possible for the two departments, she said. Klein and Lally both said they appreciate the Cheviot Eagles stepping forward to support their departments. “It’s pretty incredible they’re going to do this for us,” Klein said. “We had $50,000 cut from our budget this year, so we could really use the money.”

Is it hard to control your symptoms using your current medication? What This study will evaluate whether the study medication, budesonide MMX®, is safe and effective in people with ulcerative colitis that is not well controlled using anti-inflammatory medications known as 5-aminosalicylic acids (5-ASAs).

Students raise money for society

Springmyer Elementary School students pinched their pennies

throughout the month of February to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Students collected more than $1,300 for the nonprofit organization, donating birthday money and allowances to the cause. Not a single silver coin was counted in the collection. The grade level that collected the most pennies will rewarded with a pizza party later in March.

Oak Hills students David Kuebal, Jake Wall and Kevin Wright won the contest hosted by the university’s engineering college. Out of a field of 215 bridges, they took the prize by designing and building a truss bridge that finished second in the strength test and second in the rigidity test. The Oak Hills team of Justin Biggs, Alex Profitt and Jeremy Record finished sixth in the competition; and the team of Zach Lambing and Matt Freudemann finished ninth.

High school students learn of ethics, leadership The West Point Societies of Cincinnati and Dayton hosted its first Leadership & Ethics Seminar at Miami University Voice of America Learning Center in West Chester. The seminar provided selected sophomore and junior students and faculty members from high schools in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, the opportunity to experience some of the leadership and ethics training developed for cadets at the US Military Academy at West Point. Nearly 100 students and 50 faculty members from 50 local high schools attended the event. This seminar, focusing on the same principles and values taught at West Point, was facilitated by West Point graduates from the Greater Cincinnati area. After a short workshop to understand and establish each participant’s value and beliefs “framework,” small groups of students discussed several situational case studies in which they might find themselves. These cases enabled them to explore their personal values within an ethical decision-making model – helping students develop and internalize a personal code of conduct that will make them stronger leaders. Ethics and values-based leadership are often cited as making the difference between successful leaders and those who fail. West Point is often considered the premier leadership institution in the world. West Point seeks to “educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets, so that each graduate is a commissioned leader of character.” Cadets are taught, practice and live in an environment that develops this leadership character over a four-year period.

Elder band members selected for Catholic Honor Band Seven members of the Elder High School Band were selected to the South West Ohio Catholic Honor Band. The band is comprised of students from Catholic high schools from the Cincinnati and Dayton areas. The students were nominated by their band directors to be a member of the honor band. According to the band coordinator, Jason Umberg, director of bands for Fenwick High School, the band began as an effort in 2008 by several band directors to bring the best musicians from each high school together to participate in an

over-the-top music ensemble experience that only the combined strengths of each school’s program could offer. “This event challenges our top musicians to rehearse and perform at their highest ability alongside other students who are playing at the same level,” Umberg said. “It is also a great opportunity to showcase the growth, talent and the quality of the instrumental music programs that is taking place in our own Catholic schools. It’s pretty fitting that the concert coincides with the celebration of Catholic Schools Week.”

FIRST SWING AT 2013 BASEBALL

Elder looks to light up base paths By Tom Skeen

tskeen@communitypress.com

HAMILTON CO. — The boys of summer always get started in the spring, and the same holds true for area preps, who are embarking on the 2013 campaign.

Elder

The winning tradition continued last season as the Elder Panthers went 23-9 and made a trip to the Division I regional finals where they lost to eventual state champion and Greater Catholic League rival Moeller. According to coach Mark Thompson – who is entering his 24th season as head coach of the Panthers and was recently inducted into the Ohio High School Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame – the Panthers have posted a winning record for 23 consecutive seasons. 2013 is looking no different. The Panthers return senior Jimmy White, who tied for third in the GCL with 28 RBI last season. Thompson also returns two quality bats in Joe Ramstetter and Ben Kenning. Kenning hit .386 with 17 RBI, five doubles and 21 hits in 62 plate appearances, while his fellow senior hit .278 in 17 at-bats. Ramstetter also returns as the Panthers’ most experienced pitcher. He tossed 25.2 innings in 2012 and posted a 5.60 ERA while going 1-4 and striking out 28. Senior Alex Lind should also provide a presence on the base paths. He reached base at a .550 clip last season in 16 games. The Panthers begin the drive toward a 24th consecutive winning season March 30 when they host Highlands.

La Salle

“Play like four” will be the motto for La Salle High School as Joe Voegele and company embark on a new season. The motto pays homage to former Lancer Reid Rizzo, who died last summer of cardiomyopathy - a disease where the heart muscle becomes enlarged, thick or rigid and the muscle tissue in the heart is replaced with scar tissue. Rizzo was the starting shortstop at Lake Erie College. “‘Play like four’ will be our theme for this year and as long as I’m at La Salle,” Voegele said. The Lancers return with a nucleus of talent that helped the Lancers go 12-11 last season competing in the GCL South. Senior Brad Burkhart will lead the pitching staff, along with Paul Spaulding and Ken Ruberg. Burkhart — a University of Dayton commit - went 10-1 with a 0.86 ERA last season en route to earning first-team all-GCL recognition. A batting order featuring Ty-

ler Haubner, A.J. Petri, Burkhart, Connor Speed and Bailey Abbatiello should be effective, according to Voegele. Haubner hit .386 while posting a .462 on-base percentage in 2012. La Salle opens the season at 1 p.m., March 30, at Conner March 30.

Oak Hills

Oak Hills will be a team to watch in 2013. After going 17-9 last season and finishing third in the Greater Miami Conference, coach Chuck Laumann returns the core of his team this season including senior and University of Cincinnati commit Jake Richmond. Richmond hit .306 last season with 22 RBI, while going 1-1 with two saves on the mound earning him second-team All-GMC honors. The pitching staff could determine the level of success for the Highlanders. Jayson Essell is the lone pitcher on the roster with more than eight innings of varsity experience. “We are lacking the over-powering arms,” Laumann said. “Nobody on our staff will be able to sit back and throw the ball past anyone. What we lack in velocity, we will make up in location and change of speeds. Our kids will have to pitch and throw strikes.” What they lack in pitching, Laumann hopes they can make up for with their bats and depth. Joining Richmond is senior and first-team All-GMC selection Alec Steffen, who hit .355 in 2012 with 19 stolen bases. Senior Casey Metzger hit .286 with 15 RBI last season, while junior Ben Laumann – who was also named first-team All-GMC – hit .385 with 20 RBI. “I believe we will be very solid offensively and our overall team speed is better than what is

has been in the past,” Laumann said, who is in his 19th season at Oak Hills. “… We will be much deeper than we have been in a long time.” The Highlanders start their season at home April 1 against Mason.

St. Xavier

It’s shaping up to be an interesting year for St. Xavier and coach Bill Slinger. The Bombers return just two varsity players from their 17-5 team a season ago. Slinger will look to senior Joe Gellenbeck to do a little bit of everything for his team. The senior is expected to see time and first base, outfield and pitcher. In 2012 Gellenbeck hit .385 with a .440 on-base percentage, 24 RBI and 25 hits in 65 plate appearances. He logged 29.2 innings with a 4-1 record, 21 strikeouts and a 1.89 ERA on the mound. “We are going to ask him to do everything he can,” Slinger said of Gellenbeck. “It’s a shame he can’t play four (positions) at the same time. He did quite well for us last year.” Fellow senior Andy Schad

Elder’s Jimmy White rips a single that drove in the game-winning run for the Panthers in their regional semifinal game against Vandalia Butler last season. The senior will look to lead the Panthers to their 24th consecutive winning season. TOM SKEEN/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

completes the returners for the Bombers. Schad had just 18 atbats last season. There isn’t much depth behind Gellenbeck on the mound. Slinger will look to seniors C.J. Bowman, Mitch Sander and Ryan Shaw – who all played on the junior varsity team last season – to fill-out the rotation. “We are not going to have a strong pitching staff,” Slinger said. “… We have some young kids that will step up but they just have no varsity experience.” Slinger is hoping to see production from sophomore Justin Hilliard and second basemen Owen Hughes. Both played on junior varsity last season, which Slinger believes will help, but it’s not varsity baseball. “(Justin) is a good ballplayer but he’s young and hasn’t played a varsity game yet for us,” the coach said. “We have some juniors but you just don’t know. We see them in the gym, on artificial turf and they are great guys and they have to work hard and step up for us.”

Taylor

While from the outside it may appear the Taylor Yellow Jackets are running out a veteran squad, it couldn’t be further from the truth. Despite a roster full of 14 juniors or seniors, coach Chris Hannum will be coaching a very young team in 2013. Nine of the 14 have varsity experience but only Matthew Nash and Sean Lewis received more than 50 at-bats last season. Both Lewis and Nash hit over .270 in 2012 and combined for 37 hits and 20 RBI. The duo saw some time on the mound as well. Lewis tossed 30 innings and posted a 3.73 ERA, while Nash appeared in seven games and went 3-1. Senior outfielder/pitcher Jerry Gillespie was the only other Yellow Jacket to appear on the

mound, where he went 2-1in13.2 innings with nine strikeouts and an 8.20 ERA. Hannum is also expecting big things from junior Sam Bell. In 24 plate appearances last season he hit .167 with three RBI. “(We) will have a handful of young players that will play a major role this year,” the seventh-year coach said. Taylor opens its season March 30 at Walnut Hills as part of the Cincinnati Reds Futures High School Showcase.

Western Hills

After coming up one game short of a share of the Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference title in 2012 and graduating only two players from that 2012 roster, 2013 is shaping up well for Western Hills High School. The Mustangs return 10 starters – counting pitchers and position players – and are led by three-year starter Cameron Washington. The senior hit .391 with 25 RBI and 25 stolen bases in 2012. Senior catcher Jordan Saunders is also a three-year starter, who stole 25 bases last season, hit .263 and drove in15 runs in 57 plate appearances. Senior Levi Wolf, who posted a 5-4 record with 50 strikeouts and a 3.53 ERA last season, leads the Mustangs on the mound. Joining Wolf is fellow threeyear starter Eduardo Rodriquez. He was Holland’s No. 1 starter last season after striking out 67 on his way to a 3.00 ERA. “Western Hills has great team speed,” Holland said. “We have five guys who are capable of 25 stolen bases. We will be solid defensively. We return three starters on the mound (and) we return 11 guys who saw significant playing time in 2012. Western Hills should compete for a conference title.” The Mustangs’ drive toward the 40th CMAC title beings March 30 against Winton Woods.

La Salle taps Moore as new coach with other skill positions, young linemen and sophomore defensive end Jordan Thompson. Moore will continue to be an intervention specialist at Minster until school ends there at the end of May. He will spend Friday afternoons to Sunday nights in the Cincinnatiarea with the La Salle football program. His teaching position at La Salle had not been determined as of Tuesday night. La Salle athletic director Dan Flynn said he was confident the school found the correct fit with Moore. La Salle conducted an exhaustive national search, according to school officials. The school had a search committee of eight, including one past and one current NFL player. Moore, a 1999 Mason High School graduate, takes over for former La Salle coach Tom Grippa, who was named the new offensive coordinator at the College of Mount St. Joseph in January.

Minster head coach Nate Moore, 33, was formally introduced as the new La Salle head football coach March 19 during a live online interview hosted by WSLN, La Salle’s communications network. Moore is the ninth La Salle head football coach in school history. The school started in 1960. According to La Salle, there were four finalists for the position. La Salle and Moore worked out final details on the night of March 18. Moore said he approached the interview process by being himself and admitted the La Salle search committee was very thorough. Minster, a Division VI program, made three consecutive state playoff appearances (2010-2012) under Moore. Asked about the transition from the Midwest Athletic Conference to the Greater Catholic South division, Moore said: “Trust me, I wouldn’t

apply for this job if I didn’t think I was ready.” Moore led Minster to a 25-13 record in three seasons (2010-2012). Minster was 1-9 in 2009 and 6-24 over the previous three seasons before he arrived. Moore, a former Mason defensive end, played right tackle at the University of Dayton from 1999-

A petition that would have placed a referendum item on the Ohio High School Athletic Association’s May ballot that called for all tournaments to be conducted separately for public schools and non-public schools has been removed from the ballot, OHSAA commissioner Dan Ross announced March 22. In its place, the OHSAA Board of Directors has approved a new competitive balance proposal that could place an addition onto a school’s initial enrollment on a sport-by-sport basis that is based on the number of students on a team’s roster who are from outside that school’s district or designated attendance zone or a so-called multiplier. The new proposal was approved when the OHSAA and Wayne County administrators mutually worked to reach a resolution on the issue. It had been discussed for quite some time leading up to this weekend. If approved by high school principals in May, the new proposal would require schools to submit their rosters of student-athletes in grades 9-12 to the OHSAA office at a designated time and to further indicate how many of those students are from outside of the school’s district (for public school districts with one high school) or attendance zone (for

For non-public schools, it means indicating how many students’ residences are located outside the boundary of the same public school district or zone in which the high school building is physically located. If passed, implementation would be for the 2015-16 school year. Affected sports would include football, soccer and girls’ volleyball in the fall, basketball in the winter and baseball and softball in the spring. Voting by high school principals on the 2013 referendum issues will take place between May 1-15. A majority vote is needed for a proposal to be adopted. Proposals that called for all OHSAA tournaments to be separated by public schools and non-public schools that were generated through the petition process were soundly defeated in 1978 and 1993. In the spring of 2011 and 2012, the OHSAA membership narrowly defeated two similar competitive balance formulas for team sports that would have factored in school boundaries (how schools obtain students), socioeconomics (students on the free lunch program) and tradition (periods of success in tournaments on a sport-by-sport basis) into enrollment.

what their circumstances may be. Under coach McCoy’s guidance these same young men have learned skills and abilities that will empower them to succeed in life. Coach, I want to thank you for the many fantastic memories and wish you the very best in all you do. Lisa Nusekabel Green Township

Covedale ballfield to be resurrected

A few short years ago Covedale residents celebrated the opening of their new school. The ballfield behind the old school was sacrificed during the construction process, but no one seemed to care – including me. But a guy’s night out with my three sons changed my mind. Talking about the ballfield that once was, reminded us of a special time – their childhood. We recalled how they made their own “play dates.” A few early morning phone calls, and an easy walk or a quick bike ride, was all it took to enjoy a “pick-up game.” But the ballfield was more than a place to play ball. It was a place of solace, away from the watchful and judg-

mental eye of someone’s parent. It was where they learned at a young age that life isn’t always fair, that it’s not fun Jim Grawe COMMUNITY PRESS being bullied, and that GUEST COLUMNIST friendship is the reward of unconditionally doing the right thing. It was their school of hard knocks, where they learned how to win in the game of life. It was a place where summer days lasted forever, where the number of grass stains measured fun, where they could easily forget about coming home for dinner.

It wasn’t just any ballfield. It was their ballfield, in their neighborhood. It was where they made lifelong friends by doing things their way, together. Things they thought their parents never knew about, things they now reminisce about. But their stories are not unique. Over the years countless others have told their own special version. Throughout the Western Hills the ballfield was recognized as the Covedale Athletic Association’s home, meticulously maintained, making it a place where those slick scripted uniforms were appreciated all the more. For sure, the new Covedale School is a nice neighborhood ornament. But without the

accompanying ballfield, something is amiss. Covedale’s pulse is irregular. Its been said, “Sometimes, you don’t know what you’ve got, until it’s gone.” As time passed, residents better understood the ballfield’s quality of life value; a neighborhood amenity that enriches our lives in many subtle ways, as reflected in the responsible adults who were privileged to enjoy it as kids. But I digress. Determined to make the Covedale lifestyle complete, residents lobbied for a new ballfield. Green Township Trustee David Linnenberg supported our “build it for the children” campaign. And now, thanks to a collaborative effort between Green

Township, Cincinnati Public Schools and the Cincinnati Reds Community Fund, a new ballfield will be built; a place that the Covedale Athletic Association will call home. When it mattered most, these civic leaders stepped to the plate, and hit one out of the park, for the kids of Covedale. Now, the joy of raising a family in Covedale will again be heard in the crack of the bat! And the anticipation for success will again be echoed in the shouting of the words, “Play Ball!”

Jim Grawe is the co-founder of the Covedale Neighborhood Association. He can be reached at covedaleneighborhoodassoc@gmail.com.

Legislature gearing up for a big year Now that the election is over, committees have been assigned and are beginning to meet, and we’re hitting the budget head on; I would like to take a moment and thank everyone for the support and for affording me the opportunity to represent you in Columbus in the 130th General Assembly. It is most certainly a daunting task to which anyone might feel ill-equipped, but I have several wonderful people helping me out and making the transition less arduous. I have been assigned to three committees: Public Utilities; Commerce, Labor and Technology; and Policy and Legislative Oversight. I’m

very excited about these assignments as my engineering experience comes into play immediately with the Louis Blessing first two asCOMMUNITY PRESS signments. GUEST COLUMNIST The last committee, however, is my favorite in the sense that some of the more controversial bills will likely end up there. At the moment we’re hearing testimony on HB 7, which deals with Internet cafes. Thus far, we’ve only heard the sponsor testimony as well as that of Attorney General

Mike DeWine. However, I’m sure that there will be much more testimony and I look forward to hearing from my constituents on the matter; I’ve already heard from a few of them and that is certainly encouraging. As a whole, though, the legislature is gearing up for a rather big year. Education, tax policy and the like are always big issues, but this year we will be deciding whether or not to expand Medicaid. It behooves all of us to pay as much attention as possible to this issue as the consequences of our actions will not be insignificant. As far as my personal goals in the legislature are con-

cerned I would like to see a shifting of government power from the state level to local governments. The idea is called Federalism and we should return to its core principles. No two political jurisdictions needs are exactly alike, so how much sense does it make to pass one-size-fits-all legislation? Moreover, what group of Ohio legislators can possibly obtain enough information to craft legislation that works perfectly for 11 to 12 million citizens acting independently and in their own self-interest? Bear in mind that Ohio’s current population is more than that of the entire United States in 1820.

My contact information is below, so please feel free to contact me with whatever is on your mind. Should you bump into me, please don’t hesitate to say hi and introduce yourself. Have a great week and, again, I look forward to hearing from you.

coming to pass, you could hardly find any elected officials in this country who were opposed to that military operation. One rare dissenting voice came from an unheard-of state senator in Illinois, who is now serving his second term as president of our republic. “So it is with the Republicans and the gay issue – what used to be a slam dunk for them10 years ago is now a neck to neck horse race, the future indicates that the majority view of voters will be at odds with current Republican doctrine. “I think Mr. Portman has just assured his own re-election, or made a viable move for higher office. A sober minded popular senator from the key battleground state has recognized which way the wind is going to be blowing. What is his own party going to do? Run a far-right conservative (I refuse to use the phrase ‘Bible-thumping tea partier,’ I think it’s disrespectful) against him in a primary? Good

luck with that. Portman runs state-wide, not just in the Boehner belt. This is trouble for the Republican party, not Portman.”

Louis W. Blessing III is the State Representative for the 29th District, which includes Addyston, , Cleves, Colerain Township, Crosby Township, Harrison, Harrison Township, Miami Township, North Bend, part of Price Hill, Sayler Park and Whitewater Township. You can email him at Rep29@OhioHouse.gov or call his office at 614-466-9091.

CH@TROOM March 20 question Will U.S. Sen. Rob Portman’s support of gay marriage affect his political standing within the Republican Party? How? Will it cause other party leaders to rethink their position?

“Moral conviction (as opposed to ‘feelings’) is a virtue that is not marketable. It does not pander to the popular culture regardless of which way the wind may be blowing. Biblical values are not subject to mortal whims, whether from politicians or constituents. “Suppose Portman’s son had told him that he had always felt like stealing or was, in fact, a thief? Would his father then come out in support of kleptomania? Or, suppose he should announce a predilection for pedophilia? How would Mr. Portman try to nuance that? Right is right, even if no one is doing it; and wrong is wrong, even if everyone, though it should be a family member, is doing it.

NEXT QUESTION Have you noticed any impact from the across-the-board budget cuts that were part of the sequestration that went into effect almost a month ago. Do you expect to see an impact in the future? Why or why not? Every week The Community Press asks readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to clermont@communitypress.com with Chatroom in the subject line.

“As difficult as it may be, one must try to endorse and support a person based on their character, not whether they toe the party line. My values are not prescribed by the GOP and do not need their endorsement.

own character and I would hope that other party leaders will know better than to swing at his pitch.” D.D.

“Yes, it will. Ever since the party of Reagan became the party of Jerry Falwell decades ago, it has repelled us fiscal conservatives who espouse ‘family values,’ such as the right for two committed Americans to marry and make a family regardless of how we like their choice of partner. While Portman’s 180 turn may be called narcissistic because he didn’t espouse equality until his personal situation drove it, his decision is bold and courageous nevertheless. His support may affect his standing the way Nixon’s warming to China affected his own – both will be seen as paving the way of the party towards modernity.” D.P.

“Yes it will turn some of the bigots in the party against him. However, it will bring more inclusive people into the folds.” Good for Rob.” Ret Low

“I guess we should be pleased that Sen. Portman’s son isn’t bisexual; then he’d support marrying one’s boyfriend and one’s girlfriend. “To answer the question, yes it will adversely affect his standing. While his thought process, though faulty, surpassed that of Barack Obama and Hillary & Bill Clinton; our expectations of that bunch are much, much lower than those of a Republican Senator.”

Fruited gelatin makes Easter table special

As I write this column on the first day of spring, it’s snowing outside! Usually by this time we have our potatoes, early greens and radishes planted. We have to go along with the whims of Mother Nature. I hope each of you has a memorable and fun Easter. As I tell you Rita every holiHeikenfeld day, reRITA’S KITCHEN member those who may be alone or who can’t get out. Send a card, make a call or invite them to your table to share your abundant blessings.

Rita’s fruited gelatin terrine

I like to make mine in a terrine, which looks like a skinny, longer loaf pan. A loaf pan works well, too. This is an elegant, easy addition to an Easter dinner. If you want, you can do all individual small bowls, molds, etc. For a smaller batch, just divide the recipe in half.

4 cups mixed fruit (I use strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries.) 4 packages unflavored gelatin (four 1⁄4-oz envelopes) 4 cups white grape juice, rose wine, etc. 1 cup sugar

at a time, beating until well mixed. Start adding flour alternately with milk mixture. You should start and end with flour. Blend in lemon and vanilla. Pour into a large Bundt or angel food pan, which has been greased with Crisco and floured. Bake at 325 degrees for about 1 hour and 25 minutes. Keep oven closed while baking. Remove from pan immediately and cool on wire rack.

2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice

Arrange fruit in loaf pan. Set aside. Sprinkle gelatin over grape juice and let sit a few minutes to soften and “bloom.” Whisk gently and the gelatin should be incorporated, but not dissolved, into the juice. Pour into pan, and add sugar and lemon juice. Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer and whisk until sugar and gelatin are dissolved. Remove from heat and cool mixture, stirring occasionally, just to room temperature. Mixture should still be pourable. Slowly and gently pour enough mixture over fruit, just enough to cover nicely. This will set the fruit in a bit of gelatin so it doesn’t float. Chill until firm, about an hour. Pour remaining mixture over fruit (if it gels while it’s sitting, warm up a bit to melt, but let cool before you pour on). To unmold, dip pan in a larger pan of hot water for a few seconds to loosen. Invert a serving plate over terrine and invert terrine onto plate.

Tips from Rita’s kitchen

Lower carb: Use a sugar substitute and sugar-free juice. Even easier: Use a light-colored prepared gelatin dessert, cook as package directs and follow instructions for lay-

ering fruit. You won’t need to add juice, sugar or lemon juice.

Ruth Roberson’s special pound cake

Remember the request for a buttery pound cake like Whole Foods? I’m still working on a clone, but wanted to share Ruth’s pound cake recipe. Ruth, a Kentucky reader, told me: “I have a recipe that everyone loves. I use it for strawberry shortcake, a quick breakfast, or just as a great cake to have anytime. It is really easy to make and I have shared the recipe with many people. It’s a very old

recipe, but it is delicious and very moist. Most of the remarks I get from people are that they love the little crunch on top and then the moistness that is inside.” 3 cups sugar ⁄2cup Crisco 2 sticks margarine, softened 1 ⁄4teaspoon salt 1

“We disputed that too and found it was attached to this same company, so that’s when we canceled my debit card,” Meador said. Soon the bank received letters claiming Meador had authorized the charges when she signed up for the “free sample.” As a result, the bank sent Meador a letter saying it is not permitted to be involved further in her attempts to get her money back. “They basically said that’s proof enough for them, and they took the money back out of my account,” Meador said. Meador got a new debit card and says she didn’t realize a debit card doesn’t give you the same protections you get if you use a credit card. “I didn’t realize that. I guess the bank debit MasterCard isn’t considered the same, but I did not know that,” Meador said. The company in question tells me there were terms and conditions of the free trial offer Meador either didn’t see or didn’t get. As a result, she says she didn’t know she had just 10 days to cancel if she didn’t like the product. The company says its records show a second shipment of the product was sent to her, but Meador said she never received it – all she got was money taken from her bank account. The company says it’s investigating and I’ve told Meador to file complaints with the Ohio Attorney General and the Better Business Bureau.

Beat together sugar, Crisco, margarine and salt. Then add eggs, one

Do you know any high school juniors who took the PSAT/NMSQT®?

Remind them to register for the SAT® this spring.

Checks terms, conditions of those ‘free samples’ You see them all the time, ads for products that promise to send you a so-called “free sample,” but a local woman says she’ll be very careful before responding to such ads in the future. Diane Meador, of Loveland, got an Howard e-mail for Ain a weight loss prodHEY HOWARD! uct. It was supposed to cost her just a few dollars, but it ended up costing her a lot more. “I saw a little corner ad for a free sample for $1.89, and there were no strings attached,” Meador said. Meador signed up to get the free sample, thinking it seemed like a good deal. “I put it on my bank debt credit card. It came in like 10 days. It said nothing about signing up for a membership, even like trying something for three months and if you don’t like it you can cancel. Nothing like that,” she said. However, soon after the money was taken from her bank account, Meador got charged more than $79 for the product by an overseas firm, complete with an international transaction charge. She immediately disputed the charges with her bank, got a provisional credit and thought everything was fine. Then, two weeks later, her bank account was hit with another charge, this time for more than $82.

5 large eggs, room temperature, if possible 5 oz. can evaporated milk mixed with water to make 1 cup 3 cups all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon lemon extract 1 teaspoon vanilla

Ruth said you could substitute 1 tablespoon vanilla butter and nut flavor for the lemon and vanilla. This may make it taste more like Whole Foods cake.

Bottom line, beware of free trial offers because they often come with terms and conditions you may not want to accept.

Bridgetown Church relocating for six months

Bridgetown Church of Christ was born in 1933 and has always met in Cheviot or Bridgetown. In July 1940 the church purchased the old Bridgetown School on Race Road. In 1964, the current church building, at 3854 Race Road, was built. Its soaring roof line quickly became a West side religious landmark. “We have a great church. Since 1933 we have loved and served our community on the West side of Cincinnati,” said Nathan Hardesty, the church’s senior minister. “But, like many religious buildings, ours is aging. We had a choice to make. We could continue to ignore restroom,

Arthur H. Beinkemper, JR. 1936-2013 A few weeks ago the community lost a great west sider when Arthur H. Beinkemper, Jr. (known as Art to everyone) passed away. Art dedicated his life to his beloved wife, Billie, his two children Beth and Brad and his grandchildren. Art also dedicated a significant part of his life to the prosperity of Cincinnatus Savings and Loan. Art began his career with Cincinnatus in January, 1952 as a part time teller, eventually rising to the office of President and CEO. It was under Art’s stewardship that Cincinnatus grew and prospered, and this year Cincinnatus enjoys its 128th birthday. Anyone who met Art knew him to be a very optimistic person. To Art, the glass was never empty, it wasn’t even half full, it was always over flowing! No matter what kind of day Art was having, he was always cheerful, positive and took the time to ask how you were doing. Art was genuinely interested in you as a person. When Art was battling some recent serious health issues, he never lost that ever present optimism. Art, we are all going to miss you! On behalf of the Board of Directors, Current and Former Employees of Cincinnatus Savings and Loan, Thank You Art and God Bless. CE-0000550769
