Chorus sings for final time at high school By Kurt Backscheider

Smigielski said the interchange construction and the work at North Bend and West Fork should be finished by the end of October or early November.

North Bend — Members of the Taylor High School Alumni Chorus are preparing to bid a fond farewell to the high school’s stage. Each spring the chorus performs a fundraising variety show at Taylor, and with the school district’s new building set to open later this summer, this year’s show marks the group’s final production at the high school. “We’re really hoping to get a full house,” said chorus member Diana Sullivan. The alumni chorus will present its annual benefit show at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 26, Saturday, April 27, and 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Sunday, April 28, in Taylor’s auditorium, 36 Harrison Ave., North Bend. Chorus member Martha Seymour, who also serves as the show’s music director, said the group decided to title this year’s concert “Solid Gold Memories” as a tribute to their final year at Taylor. “It’s kind of a reunion show,” she said. “Everyone is coming back to the old school one last time.” She said the show will feature a lot of early rock ‘n’ roll tunes, and one signature dance number. There are roughly 30 members of the chorus, and Seymour said they’ve been rehearsing since September. “It’s really a great group to be involved with,” she said. “They all work hard and we have a lot of fun.”

Road work to resume in Monfort Heights Crews coming to fix finish intersection By Kurt Backscheider

Green Twp. — Crews will soon return to work at the intersection of North Bend and West Fork roads. The Ohio Department of Transportation is improving the intersection, and work has been on hold for the winter. “We’re starting to gear up again with our construction season,” said Sharon Smigiel-

ski, spokeswoman for ODOT’s District 8 office in Lebanon. “The project manager expects work to begin there in the next week or two.” The North Bend/West Fork Intersection Improvement project involves the addition of right-turn lanes at all four corners of the intersection. Space has been made on North Bend and West Fork for the turn lanes, and the new curbs and sidewalks at the corners of the intersection are already finished. Smigielski said an underground drainage issue along

West Fork Road in front of the Speedway gas station was also resolved. When crews return, she said they’ll finish the foundations for the intersection’s new utility poles and install the new poles. ODOT will also begin work to upgrade the ramps at North Bend Road and Interstate 74 this construction season. The ramp to eastbound I-74 from northbound North Bend Road, in front of St. Ignatius Church, will be extended farther south from its current location. On the west side of

North Bend Road, additional capacity will be provided on the I-74 east and west off-ramps. The interchange improvements will increase capacity on the overpass from three lanes to four lanes.

Spotlight Community Theater makes its West Side debut By Kurt Backscheider

Westwood — Kevin Dunaway said it feels good to be home on the West Side. The Green Township resident and founder of Spotlight Community Theater has found a stage in Westwood for his group’s performances. “I’m excited about the new space,” he said. “It’s a completely new stage for us, and I think it will be really cool.” Dunaway, a 2004 Western Hills High School graduate, said he founded Spotlight Community Theater in 2010 after the theater company where he was working as a youth theater director decided to end its junior program. He couldn’t give up his love of theater, so he decided to

start his own group. “I’ve always liked being in choir and performing,” Dunaway said. “My real impetus for doing theater started when I participated in the Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre (at Covedale Center for the Performing Arts) when I was 16.” That experience led him to study theater at Northern Kentucky University, where he performed in shows and also directed some productions, he said. As a new theater group without a home, he said Spotlight put on three shows each year at East Central High School in Indiana. “We started out as a youth theater organization, but now we’re putting on shows starring performers of all ages,” he said. “We’re a family-friendly

community theater.” And now they have a performance venue on the West Side – Westwood Town Hall. Dunaway said Spotlight’s first production in their new space is a cabaret-style performance featuring songs from a variety of musicals. “A Little Bit of Broadway: Broadway Through Time” tells the history of the world through Broadway music, he said. Performances are 7 p.m. Friday, April 12; 1:30 p.m. Saturday, April 13; and 5 p.m. Sunday, April 14, at the town hall, 3017 Harrison Ave. Lisa Dunaway, Kevin’s mother, said she thinks it’s great her son has worked hard to start his own theater group.

Sullivan said she enjoys the singing and the camaraderie the chorus members all share. “It truly is a great group of people.” Charlie Peak founded the alumni chorus 15 years ago. “I’ve always been into music, and I was associated with several of these people in previous musical events,” he said. “I knew they all had the talent.” He said they put on their first show in May 1998 to raise money for the Taylor High School Alumni Association’s scholarship fund, and they’ve been doing it every spring since. The show has raised close to $100,000 for the alumni association over the years, he said.

“I’m super proud of him,” she said. “He works with the children so well, and he’s even influenced his younger brother to pursue theater.” She helps with the behind-the-scenes responsibilities, and said she enjoys watching her sons on the stage. “It’s fun,” she said. “They’re both tremendous and it’s awesome that we all get to share this together.” Jason Dunaway, Kevin’s younger brother and a freshman at La Salle High School, said it was a great idea for his brother to start Spotlight. “He gives everyone a chance,” Jason said. “I know I’ve had a lot of fun and I’ve met a ton of new people.” He said he looks forward to performing at home on the West Side. “It’s a pretty intense show. You should come see it,” he said.

“It’s worked out quite well,” Peak said. He’s proud of the high quality show the chorus presents each year. “Because of the talent, we do put on an impressive show,” he said. “When we sing a ballad it

will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up.” Tickets are $8 for adults and $4 for children. Tickets may be purchased from any member of the chorus, and they’re also available at

the door prior to each performance. For more information, call 467-3200. The alumni chorus is planning to continue performing an annual spring show at the district’s new school building.

Health – West Hospital. “Our project is going very well,” said Joe Lambing, Green Township’s director of public services. North Bend is being widened from Boomer Road to Kleeman Road, allowing for the addition of travel and turn lanes,

as well as a grass median in front of the hospital. Butch Nanney, the township’s assistant public services director, said the lane stripes could be painted on the widened roadway in late April or early May. The next step would then involve finishing the

installation of new traffic signals at North Bend and Kleeman, he said. If the weather cooperates, he said the entire project could be completed in early June, which is one month ahead of schedule. The hospital is expected to open this fall.

Kevin Dunaway said there are about 30 people in the show, both adults and children. They’ve been rehearsing since January for their debut at Westwood Town Hall. “We’re excited for our first production over here,” he said. “We’d like to be the new resident community theater on the West Side.” Tickets for the show are $10 for adults, $8 for children and teens ages 11 to 17 and $6 for children 10 and younger. Call 922-4420 or send an email to spotlight communitytheater@yahoo. com to buy tickets. Tickets will also be available at the door before each show.

Volunteers are heart of Seton’s annual major fundraiser By Kurt Backscheider

Price Hill — Stop by Seton High School and you’re very likely to see Janet Cappel, Pam Hofmeyer and Jane Thiemann busy at work. The trio of mothers serve as co-chairs of the school’s annual Setonsation fundraiser, and they’ve spent numerous hours the past several weeks at Seton preparing for this year’s gala. “Everyone is working together,” said Thiemann, a Delhi Township resident. “It’s kind of like you’re pulling off the Emmys.” Cappel, also of Delhi Township, said Setonsation is the school’s largest fundraiser each year. “It raises money for tuition assistance and schol-

arships,” she said. “One hundred percent of the proceeds go back to the girls.” This year’s fundraiser, the 17th annual installment, begins at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, April 13, at the school, 3901 Glenway Ave. Thiemann said the evening begins with a Mass, followed by cocktails and dinner. Money is raised through an oral auction, silent auction, basket raffles, games of chance and a major award raffle. She and her fellow cochairs began planning for the fundraiser almost immediately after last year’s Setonsation wrapped up. They brainstorm a theme, gather items for the auctions and basket raffles and solicit sponsorships. This year’s theme is “Remember

nonprofits by giving visibility and voice to a worthy cause via social media,” she said. Her senior project has confirmed her interest in marketing, and she said she plans to study marketing in college. Cappel said this year’s goal is to raise more than $200,000.

Elder community walks to give back By Kurt Backscheider

Price Hill — A sea of purple will soon be seen making its way through the streets of Price Hill. Members of the Elder High School community will trek through the neighborhood Sunday, April 14, during the fourth annual Elder Family Walk. “While students at Elder, the annual Walk for Others was just one of the many ways in which we were taught to give back to our community and assist those around


us,” said Delhi Township resident Matt Flowers, a 1994 Elder graduate who helps organize the family walk. Elder Alumni Director Brian Bill, a classmate of Flowers who helped establish the event, said each year the 5K walk raises money for the school’s general scholarship fund and an area charity. Proceeds from past walks have been donated to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, The Women’s Connection and Pregnancy Center West. Bill said this year’s bene-

ficiary is Santa Maria Community Services. “The walk was an idea presented by two 1994 grads, Chris Broxterman and Tony Spinney,” Bill said. “They wanted to give back to the Elder community. It’s become a great way for, not only Elder alumni, but friends of Elder, friends of alumni and present and future Elder families to participate in community service.” The walk, which takes place rain or shine, begins at 11 a.m. at the Schaeper Center. It

winds its way through the streets surrounding Elder and ends in the Pit. Bill said participants are encouraged to hang around after the walk for a family picnic in the Pit. The cost to participate in the walk is $10 per person or $40 for a family of four or more. The registration fee includes a commemorative walk Tshirt, the picnic lunch, games and more. Visit for more information and to download a registration form. Walk-up registrations are welcome the day of the walk.

Elder building baseball stadium An artist’s drawing of the bleachers at the Butch Hubert Family Panther Athletic Complex. PROVIDED

Elder High School is in the process of developing a state-of-the-art baseball stadium at the Butch Hubert Family Panther Athletic Complex. This dream became a reality when an Elder alumnus Jack Adam, class of 1957, stepped up with a challenge gift of $250,000. Adams is challenging baseball graduates of El-

der to raise additional funds to finish the project. “This is the final piece of the 2003 master plan. Elder represents Ohio’s best – holding 12 state baseball titles. It’s fitting that the Panthers finally have a first-class home,” said Principal Tom Otten. The 500-seat brick stadium will include three seating sections, bath-

rooms and a press box. This project is scheduled to be completed in time for the 2014 season opener. “The generosity of Mr. Adams, the Altiora committee, Elder’s administration, and our alumni is really overwhelming, and will make this one of the premier high school baseball facilities in the Mid-

west,” said Mark Thompson, head baseball coach. “What will set this apart from other stadiums is the incorporation of the school’s character into the design.” If you have interest in donating to this project, contact Tom Reiring or 513921-3744, ext. 3415, in the Development Office.

Northside K of C celebrates 100 years By Jennie Key

nent home was established at the corner of Hamilton and Bruce avenues. The ladies auxiliary was established in 1914, welcoming the mothers, wives, and daughters of the members. The council grew and in 1919 bought a larger clubhouse at 4400

Hamilton Ave., which housed the council until 2004. By December 1923, the council had more than 1,000 members. It peaked at 1,352 members in 1929. The council continued to expand, sponsoring bingos, Boy Scouts, athletic teams, dances, picnics and other family oriented activities. The council bought and operated a bingo hall in1972. The council became active in pro-life work after the 1973 Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision, and most recently donated money to help the Pregnancy Center West buy an ultrasound machine. In 1977, the council bought the former Gutzweiler Grove on Blue Rock Road, expanding its sports activities, and built a sports complex, which opened in 1980. In 2004, the council sold the bingo hall and its clubhouse on Hamilton Avenue. The current clubhouse, adjacent to the sports complex on Blue Rock Road, opened in 2004. Throughout its history, the council has supported local parishes, St. Joseph Orphanage, agencies that provide for the disabled, and archdiocesan seminarians, most recently Father Christoper Coleman, ordained in 2006, and Father Raynaldo Taylor, ordained in 2007. It has also assisted Brian Phelps, who will be ordained as a transitional deacon in May. In 2010, Green Township offered to purchase

the sports complex property, but the offer was rejected. Continuing its focus on families, the council sponsors Halloween and Christmas parties for members’ children and grandchildren. Current Grand Knight Dennis Obert said the council has a tuition assistance program to help families with children in Catholic schools. Obert has been a member since 1978. He said he joined when his children were active in sports and he stayed involved. “This is a group that does a lot of good work,” he said. “We do a lot with charities, but mostly we work behind the scenes. We are not a group that does a lot of horn-blowing.” The Blue Rock clubhouse offers a Lenten fish fry and cornhole and horseshoe leagues. The centennial celebrations are going on all year. A Centennial Celebration is set for Saturday, April 13, which includes a Mass at St. Boniface

Church and a large group photo taken. This will be followed by a dinner dance at the Twin Lanterns. Cocktails will be served from 6 to 7 p.m., followed by dinner and dancing. Cost is $70 per couple, $40 for one person. Call 741-7700 for information. Last spring, the council began having parking lot sales in the lot at the clubhouse on Blue Rock Road. Marie Obert, a member of the ladies auxiliary and the grand knight’s wife, said the sales are a lot of fun, and have been popular with the members and the community. “It turns into a party out there,” she said. “And you get rid of a lot of stuff.” The sales will continue this year, from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. the third Saturday of each month. $20 rents a table and space and a truck from St. Vincent de Paul comes at the end of the sale each month to haul away what people don’t want to take back home. Call 513-607-2712 for information on renting space at the sales. The council will continue to celebrate its anniversary through the rest of the year, with the sales, a family picnic and a golf outing. Supreme Knight Carl Anderson said the anniversary provides the council with an opportunity for its members to rededicate themselves to the order’s principles of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism. Obert agrees. He said many councils are divesting and changing to be more able to pursue those principles.

Climbing for a cure Trek will raise funds and awareness for EE By Jennie Key

Melissa and JE Wilson

16-year-old Kelly Palmer loves pizza. It doesn’t love him back. Nothing dairy does. Neither does wheat. Nor soy. Not fish either. Eggs? Nope. Tomatoes are are also a no-go. Peanuts and tree nuts are also off the menu. That leaves him with some pretty narrow dietary choices. In a world where so much of people’s social lives revolve around food, the La Salle High School junior found himself a little isolated. He has digestive disorder: eosinophilic esophagitis, an allergic inflammatory disease of the esophagus. The Cincinnati Center for Eosinophilic Disorders says EE is a digestive system disorder in which eosinophils, a type of white blood cell, are found in above-normal amounts in one or more specific places in the digestive system and/or the blood. When the body wants to attack a substance, such as an allergy-triggering food or airborne allergen, eosinophils respond by moving into the area and releasing a variety of toxins. But when the body produces too many eosinophils, they can cause chronic inflammation, resulting in tissue damage. Many EEs sufferers can only eat a handful of foods, as others cause the body to mistakenly send white blood cells to attack their GI tract. Getting to a diagnosis and then coping with the fact that your child is basically allergic to food was a huge stress for mom Teresa Palmer. “Children’s diagnosed him, and we got a lot of information, but it was hard to understand what was happening,” she said. “His body’s in effect allergic to food and tries to fight it off when he eats almost

Monfort Heights teen introduces speaker St. Ursula Academy is taking a proactive approach to preventing violence. A certified instructor from the Live the Green Dot program, Ann Brandon, spoke to students, faculty and staff at St. Ursula Jan. 11 to educate them on strategies of violence prevention that consistently, measurably reduce power-based personal violence such as sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, child abuse, elder abuse and bullying. Green Dot is an innovative program designed to engage students to be able to respond as proactive bystanders to powerbased personal violence.

Brandon was introduced by students Julie Kenning of Monfort Heights and Ashley Peterson of Anderson Township. Brandon taught the entire student body skills they can use in responding to various forms of violence and bullying so they may be able to overcome personal barriers to intervention. To make her point, Ms. Brandon displayed a map with red dots signifying incidents involving violence. The challenge: replace the red dots with green dots--dots that represent instances when violence was prevented. Brandon’s talk supports the bystander ap-

proach, a concept that was introduced to the girls last year during an Advisory session. The idea behind the program is that violence prevention needs to

be a social movement, led by students. Ultimately, Green Dot strives to reduce these types of violence on any student campus and surrounding com-

munity by changing people’s attitudes and behaviors. The more students/community members are connected to the issues and proactively intervene when they see high risk for violence, the less opportunities perpetrators will have to victimize others. St. Ursula students say they were inspired by the messages they heard during the presentation. “St. Ursula students are role models and we are very effective when we believe in something and work together to take action. I think we can really make an impact if we all put what we learned today into action,” said St. Ursu-

la sophomore Elena Helmers-Wegman of Price Hill. “This topic really pertains to us at our age. It was really inspiring to see how Ms. Brandon works to fix this too-common problem,” said Abby Engelhardt of Delhi Township, St. Ursula sophomore. “We should take the information and bring it with us to parties and events where something could happen,” said sophomore Carolyn Knollman of Delhi Township. “We should also do the right thing when we see a potential problem and not just be a bystander who doesn’t do anything.”

3 Rivers Destination Imagination teams earn honors The Three Rivers School District hosted a Destination Imagination (DI) Challenge Regional competition recently. Teams from 13 counties came to compete in hopes of advancing to the state competition in April. Destination Imagination is a global competition designed to foster creativity and originality in children. There are seven different competitions that students can compete in, with ages ranging from kindergarten to 12th grade. The Three Rivers Middle School Advanced Program for the Talented (APT) classes competed in the competition with great success, with all 10

of the teams placing. Six of the 10 teams competing from Three Rivers placed in the top three and received a trophy and medal. Three teams placed first, and have earned a trip to the state tournament, which is in Mount Vernon, Ohio, on April 20. The sixth-grade team Flower Power competing in the science category, the fifth-grade team DI Ninjas competing in the structure challenge and the seventh-grade team TACO competing in the technical advantage competition, all placed first. DI Ninjas and TACO both also received the Renaissance Award for technical design, a prestigious

award given to only five teams in the entire competition. “All the students worked very hard over several months to prepare for this competition,” said Jo Ann Henderson, APT teacher. “Each team member has learned patience, flexibility and respect for other’s ideas as well as applied science, technology, math and engineering with the arts to solve real problems. Look what we have achieved in such a short time frame.” Next up is the state competition in Mount Vernon, where teams will compete to earn an invitation to the global finals at the University of Tennessee.

McAuley science students go on the road McAuley High School science students are currently in the middle of their traveling science show season. Under the guidance of retired McAuley chemistry teacher and coordinator of McAuley’s Women In Medicine Program Shirley Frey, they are taking a hands-on science show on the road, presenting the show to grade school students at various area elementary schools. The theme of the show is “Solids, Liquids, and Gases” and one of these shows occurred on Jan. 16 at St. Aloysius School in Bridgetown. Four McAuley sophomores, Megan DavishMaria Koenig, Osmari Novoa, and Olivia Roll presented the show at St. Al’s, spending their time working with fifth and sixth graders on four different experiments involving acids and bases, UV beads, carbon dioxide and density. Following the four experiments, the McAuley scientists gave a 30-minute show with “magic” chemicals, “exploding” foam, color-changing substances, silver plating cola bottles, and more. The St. Al’s boys and girls were enthralled by the whole program, and lots of “oohs,” “ahhs,” “wows,” “cools,” and “awesomes” could be heard throughout the classroom. These four McAuley

Oak Hills’ Konkoly sets the pace Schools already on the track, in the field making way to state

about that group’s potential. Senior distance runner McKenzie McDaniel leads the Yellowjackets. Junior long jumper Allie Dolan and sophomore hurdler Lizzie Lakamp are joined by a talented freshman class. “Our numbers are the best they have been in many years and we will fill every event with very capable athletes,” said Tenhundfeld.

By Adam Turer

With track and field season underway, here is a look at the runners, jumpers, sprinters, and vaulters leading their Western Hills Press teams in the 2013 season.

La Salle

Oak Hills

In his senior season, Kevin Konkoly wants to go out on top. He placed seventh in the state in the 400 last season and is the two-time defending Greater Miami Conference track and field boys athlete of the year. “(Kevin) is one of the top sprinters in the city,” said coach Ben Hageman, who takes over the boys program after seven years of coaching the girls team. Ross Frondorf and Blake Meyer lead a talented group of distance runners. Nate Smith joins Konkoly in the mid-distance sprints. “I feel strongly that we have several kids who have the ability to be at the top of their events in the city this year,” said Hageman. The girls team is led by its strong sprint relay teams. Mackenzie Laumann, Ellie Cunningham, Kamilah Williams, and Kennedy Korn give the Highlanders strong teams in the 4x400 and 4x200 relays. Emma Zimmer and Bayley Feist may work into those groups as the season goes on. The team has a host of freshmen who will likely contribute this season, including Williams, Alyssa McCarthy, and Alexis Conley.


District champion pole vaulter Joe Ratterman returns to lead the Panthers. Two Elder football players join the team for the first time and will compete in the shotput and discus. The addition of Max Mazza and Greg Owensby should strength-

en the Panthers’ throwing group. “Our strength will be in the field events,” said head coach Brian Flaherty. High jumper Jake Upton also returns after qualifying for the regional meet last year. The Panthers will also be solid on the track, led by sprinter and hurdler Andrew Sportsman.


Thirteen athletes who scored for the Saints varsity team last season are back. That experience and depth will be the key to the team’s 2013 success. “Our strength will be our depth,” said head coach Karen Berndt. “We won’t be amazing at any one event, but we will contribute in all events.” Distance runners Emily Heine and Hannah James, sprinters Haley Rollison and Jessie Woeste, and thrower Morgan Vogel provide senior leadership for a team that is comprised of mostly sophomores. “We have a lot of depth in our

sophomore class,” said Berndt. “They are the backbone of our team.”

Western Hills

The West Hi boys team is led by captain Leon McCullum. The senior sprinter will compete in the 200 and 400 meter sprints, and the 300 meter hurdles. On the girls side, junior Kaylin Gaines will make an impact in the 400. Other than those two, this is a young squad. The key to this season will be improvement and development, as the Mustangs try to build confidence for the future. According to head coach Peggy Peebles, “the team is young this year but are very hopeful that they will compete.”

Mother of Mercy

Distance and field events will be this team’s strengths. Senior Melina Artmayer and junior Emma Hatch lead the distance runners. The field eventers are led by seniors Haley Baker (discus and pole vault) and Kristi

O’Conner (high jump). Sprinter Quentaviana Mixon and hurdler Abby Wocher, both juniors, will lead the sprint group. Sophomore newcomers Kellie Leonard (sprints) and Megan Zeinner (distance) will give the Bobcats added depth.


Expectations are as high as they’ve been in years for the Taylor track program. The boys return nearly the entire varsity roster from last year, led by senior Spencer Craig, the school record holder in the 300 hurdles. Senior long and high jumper Sam Harper returns after qualifying for regionals last year. Sophomore Chad Mason leads the distance runners. “The amount of experience and talent returning is unbelievable,” said head coach James Tenhundfeld. “The commitment and work our returners have put in this offseason has been very exciting.” The girls team is younger, but Tenhundfeld is also excited

Just one meet into the season, and the La Salle Lancers have already made headlines. Senior standout Jaleel Hytchye, broke La Salle grad and NFL wide receiver DeVier Posey’s record in the 200-meter dash at the La Salle Legends Meet March 30. Hytchye ran the race in 21.51 seconds, which broke Posey’s mark of 21.78 set in 2008. “He wasn’t expecting to run this fast this early because we haven’t really begun to do any quality work this early in the season,” said head coach Frank Russo. The 200 was Hytchye’s fourth race of the day. He placed first in the 200 and 100 meter races, and anchored the firstplace, 4x200 relay. LaSalle won the meet, finishing first out of 18 teams. Hytchye used the 2012 campaign to garner GCL Runner of the Year recognition. He qualified for state in the 100-and 200meter dash. Junior Tim Bell also returns for coach Frank Russo after placing fifth in the high jump at last spring’s regional meet. Bell was also the GCL champ in the high and long jumps. The Lancers should also score points in field events thanks to return of senior Alex Murray, who was a regional qualifier in the pole vault. Seniors Myron Hampton (400 relay), Jacob McNamara (3,200 meters) and Jonathon Campbell (hurdles) will blend with sophomores Adam Franklin (400, 800 relay), Tyler HarSee PACE, Page A11

The McAuley Mohawks return under head coach Ron Russo, who’s entering his 25th season, as the program tries to win its third consecutive Girls’ Greater Cincinnati League Championship. Contributing seniors, mixed with underclassmen talent have given rise to high expectations. According to Russo, his team is well represented in almost every event, so scoring should be spread across the 17 events scheduled for every meet. The girls will be led by Taylor Bove, who will anchor sprints, while also trying to pick up where she left off in the discus. Bove will joined by reigning GGCL high-jump champion Jordyn Thiery. Thiery will help in the 400, 800 and 4x800 events. Thiery’s teammates on the 4x800, sophomore McKenzie Pfeifer and junior Kate Olding, will factor into middle/distance events, while sophomore Sydney Lambert can compete in sprints, as well as

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Patriotism, short and sweet

There is one word extended by Elve W. Lachtrupp. That word is a follow-up on country to add “the Constitution.” President Theodore Roosevelt took an oath to up hold the Constitution. Here is patriotism by Theodore Roosevelt. Patriotism mans to stand up by the country. The Constitution. It doesn’t mean to stand by the president or any other public official save exactly to the degree in which he himself

stands by the country. The Constitution. It is patriotic to support him, insofar as he efficiently serves the country. The Constitution. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the extent thay be inefficiently he fails in his duty to stand buy the country. The Constitution. In either event, it is unpatriotic not to tell the truth – whether about the president or anyone else – save in the rare cases where this would make known to the enemy information of military value

which would otherwise be unknown to him. In God we trust.

Green Township Change ‘it’s free’ system

Between Social Security, Medicare and Medicare (D), we have an unfunded liability of $123 trillion. This is on top of our $17 trillion national debt. If we would confiscate all assets, from Bill Gates billions to the pennies in the cups of street people, it comes to only $94 trillion. This is the ulti-

mate definition of a broken system. Yet through Obamacare we are going to expand Medicaid by trillions of dollars so millions have access to free medical care. The poor already have access to free medical care through emergency rooms. This misuse of the emergency room is a huge reason behind our rising health care costs. They could go to clinics located throughout the city but elect the emergency room instead. Why? “It’s free.” Expanding Medicaid will add trillions to our national

debt but will not change the attitude of the poor who will still use the emergency room. Why? “It’s free.” The average family on government assistance receives $82,000 per year. That is an increase of $19,000 in one year. There will never be enough money to pay for this broken “it’s free” system. Before expanding Medicaid, we need to change the welfare model from “hand out” to “hand up.”

Five advantages to Oak Hills education The Oak Hills Board of Education is currently seeking taxpayer approval for a 4.82 mill emergency operating levy on May 7. When approved, the levy is limited to five years and will expire in 2018. It’s been 16 years since the district asked voters to approve new revenue for operations. Putting that into perspective, that was 10 years before Facebook and the Reds were still playing in Cinergy Field. The last three graduating classes from Oak Hills never experienced a school levy during their time with us. Times have changed since we were in school. New tools and technology make learning more accessible. Some of our students are graduating with an entire semester of college under their belt – unheard of a

decade ago. Our kids need community support to maintain that competitive advantage.

North College Hill. Diversity of education » We offer the most Advanced Placement courses of any district in southwest Ohio. » We offer instruction in five world languages. » We partner with eight other schools across the globe. Our students are earning college credit through partnerships with the University of Cincinnati, the College of Mount St. Joseph and Cincinnati State. Community support/involvement » We serve the community as its largest employer. » Monday through Friday we operate the community’s nine largest restaurants. » Our students and staff participate in numerous community events and fundrais-

ers. When people say they “live in Oak Hills” or they are “from Oak Hills,” they mean an area defined by the borders of the Oak Hills Local School District. Think about it. What other entity defines our entire community?

Vote yes on OH school levy for a strong community On May 7, voters are being asked to come out to vote yes to approve a 4.82 mill levy in support of the Oak Hills Local School District. It has been since 1997 that the district has asked for more money to cover increasing costs of providing top notch education for all students in our district. Dollars can only be stretched so far and we have reached that limit. Here are a few reasons why you should vote yes on May 7: » Property values in the Oak Hills Local School District are higher than comparable properties in adjacent, non-excellent school districts. I am a product of public schools and believe that the quality of the schools reflects the level of community commitment to itself. Communities with good schools are

excellent education for all ages, ability and disability levels. Excellent schools attract the most talented teachers – school district teachers are the best! In the eight years our daughter has been in school, we have had nothing but outstanding experiences with teachers, administrators and staff. Opportunities for students to participate on sports teams, music, art and theater programs, clubs of all sorts are in all the schools and encouraged. The word excellent can mean many things but is not synonymous with cheap or inexpensive. It is intuitive that excellence costs more than mediocrity, but it can be accomplished frugally. Over the last 11 years, the Oak Hills Local School District has demonstrated they can achieve academic excellence as well

as fiscal responsibility. We have been getting more than we paid for the last 11 years of excellence, with the third lowest cost per student in the county . The levy will cover projected shortfalls for the next five years for existing programs only, not extravagances. We need your yes vote to

continue our West Side tradition of frugal excellence, community identity, and cohesiveness. Nobody likes to pay more taxes, but the alternative to the already established culture of excellence can only be unacceptable mediocrity. Choose excellence. Vote yes. Diana Cron lives in Green Township.

Honoring a fallen firefighter Brian Schira is not forgotten By Monica Boylson

Firefighters, co-workers and people who loved Brian Schira huddled together on a brisk April morning to honor the fallen firefighter. The Western Hills Home Depot, where Schira worked, held an early morning candlelight flag ceremony in front of the store on the fifth anniversary of his death. Schira died after a floor collapsed while he and Capt. Robin Broxterman were fighting a house fire in Colerain Township on April 4, 2008. At the time, Schira was working full-time at Home Depot and part-time at both the Colerain Township and Delhi Township fire departments. “The easiest thing is to try and forget the painful event,” former co-worker and ceremony organizer Kathi Boland said. “It was heartrending. There were people who worked here all over the store crying. But it’s important not to forget because he made the sacrifice for people’s safety and we wanted to honor that.” Each year on April 4 since Schira’s death Home Depot employees retire the flag that waves in front of the store and

replace it with a new one. At the base of the flagpole is a granite stone bearing the inscription: “In memory of Brian Schira, Firefighter and Home Depot Associate, Fallen 4-42008, Always in our Hearts, 3822.” Green Township District Chief Ed Thomas keeps Schira and other fallen firefighters close to his heart. Inside the hat of his dress uniform, tucked into a plastic sleeve, is a photo of Schira and other firefighters who died. “His memory will never fade,” he said, revealing the photographs. “Every time I put on this hat, I say a prayer for those firefighters.” Delhi Township Fire Chief Bill Zoz said he was destined to meet Schira. Zoz was the training officer at Colerain Township and was Schira’s chief at Delhi Township. “I feel very fortunate to have known him,” he said. “He was an upbeat, friendly guy, always had a smile on his face and he was always willing to step up. If you knew Brian, you cannot talk about Brian without a smile growing on your face.” Colerain Township Captain Shawn Stacy said it was important to keep Schira’s memory alive. “He was one of those guys who knew a little bit of everything,” he said. “He was a firefighter’s firefighter.”

Michelle, a Clermont County reader, wants to grow dill, but in containers. Dill has a long taproot so use a container that’s about 12 inches high. There are two varieties that grow well in containers: fernleaf grows up to 18 inches high and dukat grows up to 24 inches high. Both have lots of foliage and are slower to bolt than the taller varieties.

man told her he found a dangerous crack in the heat exchanger and was shutting down the furnace in the dead of winter. “I was suspicious and I said to him, ‘How do I know that you’re not one of those companies that they reported on the news.’ He said, ‘Because we use a scope to show you where the crack is,’” Harrison said. Harrison said she was told the crack could lead to the carbon monoxide death of everyone in the house. “He said it was a safety issue so he tagged it. He put a little red tag on it and he turned it off because he said it’s got to be shut down because it’s a safety risk,” she said. The serviceman then checked the other furnace in Harrison’s house, found the same problem and shut it down too. “I

think there was a scare tactic used. I think it was convenient that there was a person available within an hour to sell me new ones and they could install them immediately the next day,” Harrison said. A neighbor, Kathy Kilroy, was told all three of the furnaces in her house were hazardous. All three were red tagged and turned off. Kilroy said she ended up replacing all her furnaces as well. “When they tell you that your life is at stake, you definitely can’t stay in the house without the furnace running so you do something immediately,” Kilroy said. Kilroy said she later learned others in the neighborhood had encountered the same thing. “I know of three other people that have

done that. Basically the same company, the same furnace,” she said. Although many homeowners replaced their furnaces right away, some sought out second opinions. Kilroy said about one neighbor, “She had two other companies come in and they both said the furnace was not defective. There were no cracks and their furnace was completely reliable.” I contacted the heating contractor and received this statement: “In the past year our experienced technicians have found approximately 1,000 cracked heat exchangers in customers’ furnaces and have recommended that they replace these parts to prevent unsafe conditions in their homes. Based on industry standards, the presence of abnormal splits, cracks

or holes in a heat exchanger required that it be replaced. With time, abnormal cracks could allow harmful gases into the home and it’s our obligation to communicate this risk to the customer” The heating contractor acknowledged to me other HVAC companies don’t always agree with their findings. It says federal regulators are now investigating. Bottom line, if someone tells you your furnace is bad and wants to shut it down, immediately contact Duke Energy or another furnace expert and get a second opinion.

Astronomical society show off telescope solved before such telescopes become a reality Every second Saturday the Cincinnati Astronomical Society features area astronomers. Families, students, teachers and scouts – anyone with a sense of wonder about the solar system, galaxy or the universe – are invited. After Terndrup’s talk astronomers will be on hand to answer all your spacey questions, you can tour the CAS observatories and learn how telescopes work, and you’ll view the night sky through CAS’s four large telescopes. (Presentation held clear or cloudy.) Have a telescope, big or small? Bring it along for expert help exploring the night sky. While Galileo gets credit for inventing the astronomical telescope, the telescope had been al-

lects nearly 75 times more light and passes it to your eye. All that extra light is a precious commodity. Everything you are going to learn about that star, planet, galaxy or comet is carried by its light, revealing hidden detail and even fainter objects. And in astronomy fainter often means further away. The largest

He looked up. What he saw was a brand new Universe. A moon pockmarked with craters, Jupiter circled by its own moons, a Sun that had spots and a planet with ears. The human eye is an amazing instrument on its own but when coupled to the extra light gathering and magnification of even a modest size telescope it reveals invisible details. In low light the eye’s pupil opens to about 7 millimeters in diameter to let in extra light letting you see a little better in the dark. A typical 60 mm (2.5 inches) diameter beginner’s telescope col-

telescope at the Cincinnati Astronomical Society measures 16 inches in diameter, gathering over 3,000 times more light, more detail than your eye. Astronomers have a simple rule when it comes to telescopes – bigger is better. American Astronomy began here in Cincinnati

with the founding of the original Cincinnati Observatory in 1843. The telescope astronomers installed featured a lens nearly a foot across – the second largest in the world at the time. In 1904 they got a new telescope measuring 16 inches across which offered twice the light gathering.

Innocence tour stops at the Mount Dale Johnston and Derrick Jamison, both former Ohio death row inmates, are the featured speakers when the Ohio Innocence Tour 2013 comes to the College of Mount St. Joseph at 2 p.m. Monday, April 15, in the Recital Hall. Rex Zent, a retired warden with the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, will be the special guest. The public is welcome to attend. The Innocence Tour 2013 brings exonerated Ohio death row inmates to college campuses throughout the state for them to share their stories of being sentenced to death and later released from prison when their convictions were overruled. Ohioans to Stop Executions and Witness to Innocence are partnering for this program with the Office of Mission and Ministry


at the Mount. Johnston was convicted in the deaths of his daughter and her boyfriend in 1982 in Hocking County. The Ohio Supreme Court overturned his convictions in 1988 because the prosecution withheld exculpatory evidence from the defense. He and his wife, Roberta, live in Columbus. Jamison spent more than 20 years on death row for the robbery and murder of a Cincinnati bartender. His conviction was overturned in 2005. “In the 21 years I experienced ‘dead man walking,’ I never had anything to smile about,” he said. “States from Maryland to Ohio and beyond are finding that the death penalty system flat out makes mistakes. I have lived through those mistakes and am fortunate enough to tell about it.”
