Wall collapse postpones monument By Jennie Key

A slide at Holiday Park on West Fork Road in Green Township has cancelled the April 19 dedication of the German Heritage Monument a tthe German Heritage Museum. JENNIE KEY/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Part of a retaining wall at West Fork Park collapsed into the parking lot March 16, resulting in the postponement of a monument dedication. The German American Citizens League of Greater Cincinnati planned to dedicate a new German Heritage Monument at West Fork Park in April, but First Vice President Manfred Schnetzer said the retaining wall collapse has changed his group’s plans. “In the night from Saturday, March 15, to Sunday, March 16,

the retaining wall at West Fork Park collapsed and has to be totally rebuilt,” he said. Green Township Public Services employees are working to get the wall rebuilt. Foreman Randy Ludwig says the slide is not making the museum unstable. He said the collapse was likely caused by a combination of water, age and the tough winter. Ludwig says the expansion and contraction caused by freezing and thawing was a contributing factor in part of the hill and wall sliding into the parking lot. “Water infiltrates the cracks and joints, and that, combined with the age, probably caused

the wall to collapse,” he said. The wall was about 20 years old, according to Ludwig. He said the township has requests for proposal out, and officials want to get the wall repaired as soon as possible. He said he does not know how much the repair will cost. For now, the township has a portion of the parking lot cordoned off, and visitors to the park are asked to stay away from the collapse area until repairs are made. Schnetzer said the monument his group is dedicating is a See WALL, Page A2

Station restoration is labor of love for artist By Jennie Key

Green Township artist Diane Johnson found passion in the Passion this year, as she immersed herself in the restoration of 14 Daprato Stations of the Cross. Jesus is Condemned, Jesus Meets His Mother, Simon Carries the Cross... the story of Christ’s passion is set out, step by step, on the large plaques, used by Catholics and other Christians to meditate on the pain and suffering of the day of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion. The stations will hang in a chapel of the St. Thomas Aquinas Retreat Center and Camp in Mount Orab. The Rev. William Jenkins and The Rev. Joseph Greenwell, both from Immaculate Conception Church in Norwood, run the summer camp. Johnson is a member of the Immaculate Conception. When Greenwell saw a series of religious pictures she had painted for a competition, he was impressed, and asked her to take on the repair and restoration of the stations he had stored in the church basement for more than a decade. Rescued from a church in Bay City, Mich., the stations were in terrible shape, she said, with peeling paint, missing corners and broken sculptural details as well as the mold and mildew. “There was a lot to do,” she said. She did not set out to restore them to their original state. “Father had some ideas, and one of them was that he wanted them to be colorful,” she said. “The originals had a monochro-

I am really pleased with how they are turning out.” She said Greenwell checked the progress of the stations frequently. “I painted them in layers, and I did green under some of the figures,” she said. “He must See STATION, Page A2

Her work on the stations is a big departure from the light-hearted whimsy of the comic book project. Johnson says the Daprato stations have been challenging from an artistic and a personal perspective. “I had no idea how affecting the work would

be,” she said. “I watched the Passion of the Christ movie as part of my preparation. And then to be so close to it every day, you can’t help but feel it. I have been struck hard by the idea that his life wasn’t taken from him, but rather he laid it down.” She says Easter will have a new meaning to her this year, as she has traveled the painful road of the Passion since October. The stations will be blessed and unveiled in the chapel at St. Thomas this summer.

Delhi pest business opens retail shop

Delhi Pest Control, 4737 Delhi Pike, opened a retail shop in the business offering a range of products customers can purchase to treat pest problems on their own.KURT

By Kurt Backscheider

DELHI TWP. — Bob Grinkemeyer and his team at Delhi Pest Control have been solving insect and rodent problems for customers for more than three decades. Now the Delhi Township business is branching out and providing customers the tools and information they need to eradicate pests on their own. Grinkemeyer and his wife, Diana, who helps him run the 32-year-old business, expanded their operation by opening a retail store in their company headquarters, 4737 Delhi Pike. The shop sells a wide range of products for treating pest problems, including ants, rodents, termites and bed bugs. “We’ve always been a service business,” Mr. Grinkemeyer said. “We’ve never tried this retail store thing before.” When the economy took a downturn, he said more and more people started trying to eliminate pests on their own to save money. The problem is many people buy the cheapest insect sprays and rodent repellant possible, and end up doing more harm than good, he said. “Our guys were coming back with horror stories,” he said. “People weren’t using products correctly or were using harmful in-

secticides inside around children and pets.” Over the years, Grinkemeyer said they’ve had several customers inquire about how to buy the products pest control businesses like his use, and they would usually help their customers get those products. With the recent spike in bed bug infestations in the region – and even more people trying to treat problems on their own – he and his wife decided it was time to open a retail component to their business. “We realized if we sell these products we can instruct people how to use them,” he said. “We wanted to give people a place where they could stop in with their pest specimen and get the right product they need to make sure it’s treated correctly.

“They may not be able to afford pest control services, but at least they’ll know how to use the products safely,” he said. Education is the key to treating pest problems, and Grinkemeyer said customers can bring a specimen of the pest into the shop, have it identified and receive information about how to treat it, what product to use, how to apply the product and what results to expect. “We really want to help people out,” he said. “We get a lot of people who return and say they’ve taken care of the problem themselves.” Of course, those who don’t feel comfortable attacking pests on their own can call Delhi Pest Control for service.

Cheviot voters face renewal levy on May ballot levy is Issue 4 on the ballot. Patty Henry, assistant auditor for the city, said the Keller levy was first approved by residents in August 2009.

By Kurt Backscheider

CHEVIOT — City voters have a tax issue to decide when they visit the polls for the primary election May 6. Cheviot officials are seeking the renewal of a 5.61-mill, five-year levy for current expenses. The

The levy generates $616,975 annually for the city, and she said the revenue goes into the city’s general fund and is used to pay operating expenses. It costs the owner of a home worth $100,000 about $168 per year in property taxes, Henry said.

Cheviot Mayor Samuel Keller stressed that, if it’s passed, the levy will not raise taxes. “This is a renewal levy,” he said. “It will not increase taxes for our residents. I know that’s important for everyone.” As an operating levy, he said the money is allocated to the general fund and then used to cover a plethora of expenses – everything from city vehicles to personnel. With the state funding cuts the city has sustained, Keller said renewal of the levy is important for Cheviot’s roughly $4.8 million yearly budget. “Cities everywhere are operating on shoestring budgets because so many cuts have been made,” he said. “It’s essential for the city’s operation that this levy be renewed.

Seton’s Blaut looking for second straight state title in high jump Catholic League last season. Field events are without a doubt where the Saints’ strengths lie. Junior Alyssa Ramstetter is coming off a regional appearance in the discus, while senior Ellie Hahn returns after capturing a GGCL shot put championship last season. Sophomore Anna Schoster finished fifth at districts in the long jump as a freshman. Look for big things from junior Kelsey Kurzhals who was the 2013 GGCL champion in the 100-meter dash. Junior Gabriel Hirlinger will be Berndt’s top distance runner as she will compete in the 800-, 1,600- and 3,200-meter races. “Our strength in field events will carry us this season backed with depth from all other event areas,” the coach said.

By Tom Skeen

Rain has delayed the start of the high school track season, but that just gives you - the reader - more time to get to know how things are shaping up for the season. So, here’s a preview of how the teams in the Western Hills/Delhi/Price Hill Press coverage are looking in 2014:


After capturing a district title and finishing as regional runner up, senior pole vaulter Joe Ratterman joins a bevy of returning Panthers who are looking to lift the team to the top of the Greater Catholic League in 2014. Joining Ratterman are four regional qualifiers in Jaquon James, Andrew Sportsman, Jonathon Reiter and Logan Steiner. James is a hurdler, while Sportsman is a sprinter and reached the regional meet in both the 100- and 200-meter dashes. Steiner and Reiter are distance runners, while Steiner also reached regionals as a member of the 4x800 relay team. “We are a very experienced team returning a large number of our top point scorers from last year,” coach Brian Flaherty said. “We should be able to score in multiple events and should have the opportunity to win a few events.”

Gamble Montessori

The Gators are coached by Matt Kane (boys) and Siobhan Taylor (girls). No other information was available before press deadline.

La Salle

Senior Tim Bell headlines a Lancer team that won its fourth straight Greater Catholic League title in 2013. Bell owns the school record in the long jump and was both the GCL and district champion in the event last season on his way to earning GCL Field Events Athlete of the Year honors. According to coach Frank Russo, Bell is being recruited by Ohio State, the University of Cincinnati, Akron and Kent State. Bell is also a part of both the 4x100- and 4x200-meter relay teams, who both finished fifth at regional’s last season. Adam Franklin, Tyler Harmon and Jeff Larkin all return to roundout the two relay teams who will likely be state contenders in 2014. Sophomore Jeremy Larkin also returns and will make an impact on the relay teams as well as in individual action as well. The addition of football players Luke Doerger and Jordan Thompson will strengthen the field side of things for Russo, as both will join the team as throwers in both the discus and shot put events. After a couple rainouts early the season, the Lancers continue 2014 on the track April 9 at Fairfield High School for the Coaches Classic.

Schapker this season. “We have a young and emerging group of athletes with an outstanding work ethic who are eager to improve to Mercy’s fifth-place finish in the GGCL the last two year,” Schapker said. “Our number of athletes is way up over last year. This depth will allow us to field a team with the potential to score points in just about every event, whereas in the past we have had to rely very heavily on the distance and field events for our points.” Senior Emma Hatch will lead the way when it comes to distance. Hatch earned secondteam All-GGCL honors in the 3,200-meter last season and will also run the 1,600. Freshman Alex Stevens will also run distance events this season. Sophomore Katie Cavanaugh is one of those youngsters Schapker expects to contribute in 2014. She will see action in both the 400 and 800. As far as the sprints go, sophomore Sarah Hoesl and freshman Jennifer Ramsey will lead the way. Ramsey will also participate in the long jump.

Oak Hills

Ben Hageman enters his second year as coach of the boys team after coaching the girls from 2001-2007. Coming off a fourth-place finish a season ago, the Highlanders return a strong group of distance runners led by Nate Smith, Derek Knabe and Andrew Schille. Schille (Northern Kentucky University) and Knabe (Capital University) will both continue their track and field careers at the collegiate level next season. “Andrew and Derek will lead a strong group of distance runners,” Hageman said. “They have been rocks all winter, leading the distance groups through their off-season conditioning.” Smith will be relied upon as the leader of the pack. “Nate will continue Oak Hills’ tradition of strong quarter milers,” Hageman said. “He will be one of the top 400 runners in the area. He is a strong example to the underclassmen on how work ethic can impact performance. We are expecting very big things from him this year.” Look for Devin Moore to lead

the team in field events. Moore is a strong high jumper and long jumper and already owns the school record in the triple jump and was a regional qualifier in the long jump last season during his sophomore campaign. Jake Richards is hoping his youth shows some maturity in 2014. Sophomore Alyssa McCarthy leads a young Lady Highlanders’ squad from the long jumping spot and started the season with a bang notching a personal best jump in the first meet of the season. Fellow sophomore Alexis Conley worked on her high jumping technique in the offseason which leads Richards to believe she can make an impact after failing to place in the Greater Miami Conference meet as a freshman. Kamilah Williams returns as the team’s top sprinter and will be joined in the position by McCarthy. Richards believes Williams has the potential to be one of the top sprinters in the GMC as a sophomore. Laura Jennrich leads a group of talented, young distance runners, while freshman Megan Kappen looks to take her talents from middle school to high

school and make an immediate impact in both the hurdles and sprint relays. “While it seems like I’ve said this every year now, I’ll say it again: We’re young and we’ve got quite a bit of long-term potential,” Richards said. “Although we may not have a senior leader, we’ve got a strong foundation to build on in our returning sophomores and juniors and a good group of enthusiastic freshmen


Loretta Blaut is looking to make it two-for-two in 2014. After winning the Division I state title in the high jump last season with a jump of 5 feet 7 inches, the goal is even greater this season in hopes of cracking the state record of 6 feet 1 1/4 inches. “The sky’s the limit,” track and field coach Karen Berndt said. “She has so much more strength to gain. I don’t even know what her limits are because we’re just getting started with her.” Blaut – a University of Cincinnati commit - is just one of 13 starters back for the Saints who are coming off a second-place finish in the Girls’ Greater

After leading the Bombers to a cross country state title, seniors Michael Hall and Evan Stifel will now try to do the same on the track. Hall returns after capturing a district and regional title in the 1,600 last season. Hall was also part of the 4x800 relay team that that finished third at state in 2013. Three quarters of the relay team is back and is expected to be comprised of Hall, junior Michael Vitucci, junior Brad Eagan and senior Jax Talbott. Talbott was part of the team throughout the 2013 season but was replaced by Eagan at the state meet. With the graduation of Jake Grabowski, both are expected to run the event this season. Vitucci finished behind Hall in the 1,600 at districts and regional’s while notching a ninthplace finish at state. Senior Zach Lynett returns after finishing 14th in the state in the 300 hurdles in 2013. Look for junior sprinter Ron Fricke and senior hurdler Andrew Racadio to contribute this season as well. Senior Ben Egner is injured, but coach Oliver Mason expects him to make an immediate impact upon his return. “Last year during the indoor season a lot of these guys proved they’d be a force during the outdoor season,” Mason said. According to the school’s athletic website, the Bombers are back in action April 7 at the Fairfield Come N’ Run.


Coach James Tenhundfeld expects his Yellow Jackets not to be the same team they are now come late May. With plenty of new faces, seniors Ryan Bundy and Adam Coleman will be relied upon heavily to step into the leadership roles. Bundy is a senior thrower who finished eighth in the Cincinnati Hills League in the shot put last season. Fellow thrower Ryan Sandling finished fourth in the shot put and sixth in the discus as a sophomore. Expect junior Roman Murray to challenge for a top spot in the CHL in both the100- and 200meter dashes, while junior Chad Mason should also be near the top of the league in distance events. “The exciting thing this season will be watching our athletes grow through the season,” Tenhundfeld said. “Hopefully See TRACK, Page A9



Elder hoping state final run last season spurs success The 2014 boys’ volleyball season is underway. Here’s a look at how the teams in the Western Hills/Delhi/Price Hill Press are shaping up:

“It’s great as a coach to know what you’re going to get night in and night out. He’s going to be our rock we build everything around this year. I’ve got to say he’s the best defensive player in our league in my eyes.”


St. Xavier

By Tom Skeen

Going back to last season the Panthers have won 10 of their last 11 games. The one loss came to Hillard Darby in the Division I state finals. It’s an experience that has both its ups and downs for the 2014 Panthers who return nine players from that state finals team. “Getting that far and coming up short has only fueled us first off,” coach Sean Tierney said. “The guys worked extremely hard in the offseason with their conditioning and lifting and even in the season everybody is anxious to play the big boys and start the tournament now. For us coaches we must go through the process of taking things one game at a time.” Of the nine returning players five saw significant playing time last season; senior setter Nathan Herdeman, senior defensive specialist Sean Conway, senior middle hitter Matthew Nortmann, senior middle hitter J.T. Boiman and senior outside hitter Ben Smith. Junior Kevin Siemer is seeing an increased role at setter this season, while senior right outside hitter Bradley Newell has already made his presence known after sitting the bench for most of last season behind a senior. “He has been a very strong offensive presence at least early on,” Tierney said of Newell. “He’s (6foot-6) and now he’s getting his chance, so he’s been a fantastic offensive threat for us on the right side.” Senior Josh Byrne is another outside hitter he sat the bench for most of

last season and has made an early impact this season. “We’ve had a good start to the season thus far,” Tierney said. “We’ve played some quality opponents that have given us a test and given us the opportunity to see where we are so to speak.”

La Salle

The Lancers are off to a 2-3 start under coach Wes Post. Post’s team is led by seniors Jason Schuler (setter), Jack Goldschmidt (outside hitter), Adam Moeller (right outside hitter), Alex Brutz (middle hitter) and Alban Schneider (outside hitter). Freshman Will Goldschmidt has made an immediate impact along with sophomore Joe Walden and junior William Frey.

Oak Hills A 4-1 record doesn’t mean much to coach Chris Morman, whose Highlanders are coming off a Greater Miami Conference title in 2013. Morman’s team buckled under pressure April 2, blowing a two-set lead to La Salle for their first loss of the season. Much to the coach’s pleasure, his Highlanders bounced back the following evening with the four-set win over GMC foe Middletown. “You can tell a lot about kids with how they bounce back,” Morman said. “This is a hungry group of seniors who have been through it and know what it’s like to beat GCL teams and play with the big boys. Expectations for our team have changed exponentially; we expect not to compete, but to beat these teams.”

The Highlanders started the 2014 season on a down note after losing senior Andrew Chisholm to a broken ankle. Couple that with the graduation of 2013 GMC Athlete of the Year Darien McDowell and they were behind the eight ball immediately. “We’re (five) matches in; it’s early,” Morman said. “We’ve had a lot to overcome. It wasn’t until (La Salle) where we were really challenged and tested and I think it was a necessary thing for us to go through.” Sophomore Robbie Ramsey stepped in for Chisholm at middle blocker and has been told it’s his job to lose.

Junior Tim Laib has been thrust into a more prominent role this season and Morman is still waiting for him to grab it and run with it. “He’s got a little bit of growing up to do, maturing to do still,” the coach said. “Hopefully as the season moves on he starts to realize things and things open up for him a little more. .. It takes a special kid to take it on the right way and not let it be too much.” Senior Austin Anderson returns after taking home first-team All-GMC honors last season. He moves into the libero position this season and is every coach’s dream according to Morman.

Bill Ferris has his Bombers off to a 3-0 start in what is his 13th year as coach at St. X. An up and down 2013 led many members of the 2014 squad to pick up some playing time which is coming in handy about now for Ferris. “This team has more depth than most I have coached and this leads to very productive practices and great flexibility in matches,” the coach said. “All the guys want to compete and earn their spot and once it is earned they have to continue to compete to keep it. I think this gives us an excellent opportunity to continue to improve throughout the year.” Senior libero Brian Dahm leads the juniorand senior-heavy team. Dahm earned secondteam All-GCL honors last season. Fellow senior Robert Ryan, along with juniors Patrick Beer (setter), Nick Talbot (outside hitter) and Eric Spoelker (middle hitter) headline Ferris’ roster. Look for senior outside hitter Connor Skelly, senior defensive specialist Dan Menard and senior outside hitter Michael Schwarz to have an impact as well.

Boosters’ logo claims refuted by case law Please read the Oak Hills Athletic Boosters February “Community Letter” on their website. The misinformation abounds by its design. The Boosters have inadvertently admitted that it has no ownership rights in the Olde English “OH.” The Boosters claim its rightful ownership of the “OH” can be verified by the Ohio Secretary of State’s website. The Boosters registered the “OH” in 1981. I checked the Ohio SOS website, discovering the Boosters corporate status expired, as did the “OH” registration, in 1997. It reinstated its corporate status in 2007. It did not re-register the “OH” until June 2013. Registration of a mark is not proof of ownership. It’s not my opinion. It’s the law. The Ohio Supreme Court has so ruled. The owner of a service mark is

dence I could find of “OH” use was the 1966 Oak Hills Varsity “O” Club. Documentation suggesting the Boosters created or acquired the “OH” does not exist. If the Boosters owned the mark, it has waived any right of enforcement. The legal Doctrine of Laches applies because the Boosters sat on their rights since at least 1981. It cannot enforce rights it has waived. The “common-law rights may be lost in various ways. For example, the doctrine of laches may bar a claim of commonlaw protection if there is an inexcusable delay between a newcomer’s use of the name and the original user’s action to enjoin the use.” Hinckley Chamber of Commerce v. Hinckley Chamber of Commerce, Inc. (Ohio App. 9th Dist. 1985). Since at least 1974 the

Such rights belong to the one who first actually adopts and uses the… mark in connection with his business.” Younker, et al. v. Nationwide Mutual Ins. Co. (Ohio 1963). Registration is merely claiming ownership of it. It is not proof of ownership. When the Boosters claim the registration is proof of ownership, it admits it has no proof of ownership.

What makes us happy?

Just like other folks, we of the American Council of the Blind of Ohio, Greater Cincinnati Chapter, have lots of hobbies and pursuits beyond our jobs and careers. I interviewed Dana Metcalf of Mount Healthy Thursday, March 13, because he recently peaked my curiosity in his extra curricular activities. For one matter, he traveled to Nairobi, Kenya, last October with his church as part of the work of Missions of Hope International. I asked him how his participation in that mission came about. Dana replied, “I was talking to the mission minister one day and I expressed an interest in the planned trip to Kenya. Before I knew it, I was signed up and on my way.” I suppose the mission minister at Dana’s church saw beyond a blind person with a mild case of cerebral palsy when she grabbed him up for the mission trip. That interview with Dana

brings to mind a very curious question: “Why do many if not most people seem to see our blindness first and last and in Joyce Rogers COMMUNITY PRESS between and totally miss GUEST COLUMNIST our personalities, intelligence, willingness to serve, and all those wonderful realities of us that make us just like them?” As Dana was growing up, he and his father both took the exam for their amateur radio license and had fun together sharing that activity. Dana confessed another long-term ambition to me, namely his desire to become proficient in playing the harmonica. He treated us to his playing of “Silent Night” at our Christmas dinner in December at The Farm, something he now “does for fun.” As a man in his 40s, Dana

enjoys tandem biking, snow shoeing, and sculpting. Dana’s father was a carpenter, and Dana also enjoys creating object of beauty with his hands (for fun and a little profit). In conclusion, I asked Dana what he would like to tell readers of the Community Press. He laughed and said, “Do not scream at us; we are not usually hard of hearing. Ask us what kind of help we want, if any; do not figure you know without a reality check.” If any of you readers would like to tell us blind folks a thing or two, please respond by sending your comments to Also, I forgot to say that Dana just loves to play with his talking iPhone, which he has owned for a year. How many of you have such toys that “You just love!”? Joyce Rogers is a resident of Covedale.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR New police station well thought out

There appears to be ongoing confusion as to the new location of Cincinnati Police District 3 headquarters, at least for a couple recent letter writers. I have volunteered in a Cincinnati Police Department program for 15 years and, while I am not writing as a police or community spokesman, I do have familiarity with how and why the new site was selected. The old District 3 building is much too small and grossly inadequate. Police have been using an adjacent building as an annex due to the inadequacy of the current building. Additionally, the old headquarters is at the far east end of the police district. I am sure it is nice to have the district headquarters in your back yard. However, it is not in the best interest of the district as a whole to have the headquarters at a remote location with response times of 20 to 30 minutes, even with lights and sirens, to the far end of the

district (Sayler Park). Several locations were considered for the new headquarters. Comments were solicited online and numerous community meetings were held to gather input. Of the possible locations, the one ultimately selected on Ferguson Road is near the geographic center of District 3, greatly reducing response times to locations at the far ends of Westwood and Sayler Park. The location is actually on the border between Westwood and West Price Hill, next door to Western Hills High School and in the center of west side retail development. Additionally, the location is just off Glenway Avenue, maintaining quick response down Glenway Avenue toward East Price Hill. Ferguson Road provides quick access to the north and northeast. No location is ideal. However, the location selected is as close to ideal as I can imagine. The city went out of its way to solicit community input. You can’t make everyone



happy. However, this process did pretty well.

Let’s not stop with snow removal

I want to thank Miami Township (Cleves) for the snow removal this winter. They worked some long hours and did a great job. They had to be feeling some stress. Now, if they could let the next level of government (Congress) in on their secret on how to get the job done maybe the stress level many are feeling with Obamacare could be removed. Let’s scrap this offensive Obamacare off the law books and put it in the dump trucks and get rid of it. At least once the streets were plowed of snow you could see a job well done. With this Obamacare there is no clear view because of all the exemptions and delays that the road looks pretty dirty and useless. We need a huge dump truck!

The Oak Hills “OH logo.

Boosters acquiesced as others used the “OH” as their own symbol in the Oak Hills community. It cannot now decide to protect the “OH” in the community. The toothpaste cannot go back in the tube. Thus for the last year, the

Boosters have seemingly fraudulently claimed ownership of said mark, and have thus perhaps extorted money from entities, including even the Oak Hills Local School District and the PTAs of each school, by leasing the rights to a mark it does not own. Who owns the “OH?” It does not appear to be the Boosters. Everyone may be free to use the mark. Any entity forced to join the Boosters and pay the tribute should demand a full, complete, and immediate refund. If refunds are not immediate, legal action should proceed, which may qualify as a class-action for which legal fees may be awarded.

CH@TROOM April 2 question There is a campaign both locally and nationally to make baseball’s Opening Day an official holiday. Do you think this is a good idea? Why or why not?

“I think this is a very good idea. Baseball is king in this city and we take this day every year to honor that.” Terry Garvin

“Things are just fine here in Cincinnati on Opening Day. If others wish to do the same thing they should be able to do it without bringing in the local or national governments.” R.V.

“I’m not really sure if other cities celebrate Opening Day in the same fashion as Cincinnati. There is a lot of activity that is exhibited on Opening Day from early morning and till late in the evening. I know the stadium only seats approximately 40,000, but many many more take off work that day, due to sickness or whatever, and boost our economy by frequenting a local establishment somewhere to watch on TV. I also understand that Opening Day causes some of the highest absenteeism within our school systems, and possibly the lowest production within most companies. Did you ever try to get anything done with a local or county

office on this day? I know when I was working, we always had a TV and refreshments for our customers in the lobby and had the employees dress in their Reds garb. This is a day of enjoyment and socializing amongst thousands of people, and if we can’t do this just for one day, maybe we should just keep on as is and continue to play hooky.” D.J.

“Yes. Let’s have some fun outdoors after the winter dulls. This should not be a bargaining chip in business but a national day to miss work or school with no penalty at either. Lest we forget it has been labeled the national pastime. Boys and girls start playing at very young ages, moms and dads cheer in the bleachers rings in small towns to large cities, sand lots. So, let’s play ball.”

is Sayler Park man’s canvas By Betty Kamuf


hen there is a big snow, most people pick up their snow shovel and salt and complain about shoveling off their driveway. Not Mike Taylor of Sayler Park. He sees the snow as free material to make snow sculptures. He shovels his driveway and his neighbors until he gets a seven-foot pile. “My neighbors never get mad at me for stealing their snow,” Taylor said. Then he waits for the right temperature. At 35 degrees the snow sticks together and he starts sculpting. He gets an idea of what he wants to make and sometimes it changes as he goes along. He has to work fast because the snow might melt, and he hopes the temperature will go down so his finished product will not melt. He has many visitors on Twain Avenue while he is working. People come down the street with their kids and pull up and take pictures. “I had two people pull up and say, “You’re the only reason I like snow.” Before the snow sculptures he made sand sculpture on the beaches at Panama City and Myrtle Beach. He made a big face of Batman. It never got torn up, so the next day he did Joker. He put a big tongue going down to the water and people walked by and said, “Don’t step on that tongue, you will stick to it.” Taylor has also sculpted pumpkins and displayed them on his lawn. He likes the pumpkins, but is thinking of doing a limited edition of bronze statues. He started with snow years ago when he made his son a big Eskimo house. As his kids grew up their favorite network was Nickelodeon. So he made char-

acters from their shows. One had two big eyes on top and a big nose. Once he sculpted Abraham Lincoln. He had to do a lot of research on line to get the head and profile right. Heads are not round, but elongated. He did the sculpture in stages and you couldn’t tell who it was until he put on the hair and eyebrows on. He used sticks for that. “I’m the only one who has a box of eye brows and a garage of sticks,” he said. A 2-year-old neighbor got him started on the pirates. She asked him if he could make her a pirate. She reminded him of his daughter, and so he got to

work. He dyed a sheet red and made an eye patch out of cardboard. Then he accumulated a pile of snow. “I used a peanut butter lid and drew pupils on it with a permanent marker for the eyes. I placed the eye on the head and stood back to see if it was straight and then proceeded to

finish the eye. Then I had to use sticks for the stubble beard.” It melted in one day and the little girl never saw it so he had to make another one. Even though the weather is cold the sunny side of the sculptures develops pock marks and have to be constantly fixed, \that doesn’t deter him

from doing the sculptures. The material is free and he enjoys people reactions when they see them. It makes people laugh and that makes him feel good. “One day a guy came up and took pictures while smiling and then he bent double laughing. I thought that is real success right there.”

Mike Taylor's snow sculptures usually last longer than the material from which they are made. BETTY KAMUF/FOR THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Sharing a hot cross bun recipe, and the legend behind it I may be jinxing myself, but I think we’ve finally transitioned into spring. The last few days have convinced me, and in our little patch of woods, I’m seeing true harbingers: watercress in our spring fed pool and trilliums, bloodroot, anemRita ones and Heikenfeld spring RITA’S KITCHEN beauties all poking up through the leaves. The dandelions and wild onions are all over the place. Both nutritious wild edibles. Meanwhile, we’re gearing up for Easter. One of my favorite yeast buns to make is hot cross buns. Now these aren’t extremely sweet, like a sweet roll (they’re a bun, remember), but just sweet enough to really enjoy with a cup of tea or glass of milk. Legend has it that if you make yeasted hot cross buns for Good Friday and hang one up in the kitchen, you’ll have success with anything

you make with yeast all year ‘round. That won’t be happening at my house! Let the kids help Granddaughter Eva loved making the cross decoration. You can also simply use the icing as a glaze over the whole bun.


1 pkg. (1/4 oz.) active dry yeast, regular or rapid rise 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 cup sugar, divided 1 cup warm milk (110° -115°) 1/4 cup softened butter Couple dashes salt 1/2 to 1 cup raisins 1 large egg, room temperature 3-1/2 to 3-3/4 cups allpurpose flour Preheat oven to 375. In mixer bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 tablespoon sugar in warm milk. Let stand for 5 minutes. It will foam up. Add butter, raisins, egg, salt and remaining sugar; beat until smooth. On low speed, pour in enough flour to form soft dough - I used 3-1/2 cups. Turn onto very lightly floured surface (not too much flour or buns will be tough); knead until

smooth like a baby’s bottom, about 5 minutes. I used the dough hook so avoided hand kneading and extra flour. Place in sprayed or buttered bowl, turning once to coat top. Bless dough! Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, 1 hour or more. Stick a finger in gently, if indentation remains, you’re good to go; if it springs back, it needs to raise more. Punch dough down. Divide into 12 portions. Shape into balls. Place in sprayed or buttered 13x9 pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden. Mine were done at 25 minutes.


Whisk together: 2 cups confectioner’s sugar 1 tablespoon vanilla 4 tablespoons water or more if needed. Make a cross shape on each bun.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen:

Raising in frig: As an experiment, I divided dough in half and let half

Is it fresh? To make sure your yeast can still leaven, add a little to some warm water with a pinch of sugar. It should foam up within minutes. If not, toss it. Yeast kept in freezer stays fresh longer.

Can you help?

Hot cross buns: Make them, and hang one up in the kitchen to ensure success in future yeast recipes.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

raise at room temperature and half in frig, covered, overnight. The dough from the frig took longer to raise, but both batches came out great.

Hawaiian roll clone

Leave out raisins and icing and you have a roll that, to me, tastes like store-bought Hawaiian rolls. The crust is not as soft, but the sweet flavor

is there!

Yeast basics

Back in the old days yeast came in the form of moist little cakes and had to be refrigerated. Now we can buy dry yeast in the store. It comes in many forms, from regular yeast to rapid rise to bread machine yeast. All easy to use!

Yeasty flavor in breads: Lois B. has a friend who wants to know how to make the flavor of yeast more prominent in her baked goods. Using regular, not rapid rise may help. Any suggestions from bakers in our Community circle of friends? Applebee’s hot bacon dressing. Wanda R. has tried “to no avail” to make this. Do you have a similar recipe?

‘Bloomin’ Arts’ plants seed on the Westside

The College of Mount St. Joseph and Western Hills Garden Club are combining forces to present an intergenerational meeting of the minds and creative spirit in the form of “Bloomin’ Arts II: Art & Inspired Floral Design.” The community event is set for Thursday and Friday, April 10 and 11, at the college’s Studio San Giuseppe Gallery in the Art & Design Building. Modeled after the Cincinnati Art Museum’s popular biennial “Art in Bloom” exhibit, it is an art-show-and-flowershow-in-one for the community.

The joint venture begins this year with the College of Mount St. Joseph “2014 Senior Thesis: Fine Art/Art/Art History” exhibit at the gallery, featuring the work of 18 students with an Art Concentration, which runs April 4-17. Garden club members will interpret art from this exhibit into amateur floral designs. The 18 works of art and 18 corresponding floral designs will share the gallery space in “Bloomin’ Arts II” for two days. Hours are noon to 7:00 p.m. Thursday, April 10, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, April 11. In addition, two local

Garden Club members Margie Jansing, Dottie Lutz, Rick Dahle, Barb Paul, Kathy DePrie and Mary Jo Brady got artistic at the College of Mount St. Joseph recently as they painted pedestals to hold floral designs for the upcoming "Bloomin Arts" flower show. THANKS TO SUSAN GREINER

Westside florists will also choose art to interpret in professional designs.

This year’s duo is Mount St. Joseph alum Denise Emmett of Petals-n-Glass

Boutique, 4474 W. Eighth St., and Dean Lutz of Piepmeier the Florist, 5794

Filview Circle. A team of three judges – Jerry Bellas, assistant director, Studio San Giuseppe Gallery; Dennis Buttelwerth, Buttelwerth’s Florist, and Carolyn Doerflein, master flower show judge – will judge the floral designs April 10. “Bloomin’ Arts II” is open to the public at no charge. The community is also invited to a gallery reception on Thursday, April 10, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., where they can also meet the student artists and floral designers. Closest event parking is available in the surface lot off Delhi Road; entrance is just west of the theatre.
