BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
It’s an all Italian festival At Harvest Home this weekend By Kurt Backscheider email@example.com
Joe Mastruserio said he loves throwing a big party. The Westwood resident and St. Catharine of Siena parishioner is one of the organizers of the parish’s CincItalia, the Cincinnati Italian Festival. “The satisfaction of helping the parish is a wonderful thing,” he said. St. Catharine will present its third annual Italian festival 6 p.m. to midnight Friday, May 18; 3 p.m. to midnight Saturday, May 19; and 1-9 p.m. Sunday, May 20, at Harvest Home Park in Cheviot. Friday’s “Carnevale” festivities are open to adults only, ages 19 and older. “We started CincItalia as an enhancement to the St. Catharine parish festival,” Mastruserio said. “We thought we needed to do something to attract a broader audience.”

Seniors helping with staging ‘The Pirates of Penzance’ By Kurt Backscheider
Freshmen take the stage to present “The Pirates of Penzance” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 24, Friday, May 25 and Saturday, May 26, at the high school, 3200 Ebenezer Road. They also have a matinee performance at 3 p.m. Saturday, May 26. Reserved seat tickets are $7 each. Tickets are available at the door prior to each show, or by calling 467-7141.
Oak Hills High School senior Tim Schrenk said it’s fun to watch the freshmen theater students grow and learn. The Green Township teen was once in the same shoes as this year’s class of freshmen, so he’s showing them the theater ropes the way upperclassmen once did for him. Schrenk is one of about a dozen seniors who are helping Oak Hills music teacher June Hill direct this year’s freshmen musical, “The Pirates of Penzance.” “The seniors play the roles of student directors and stage managers,” he said. “We make it possible for Mrs. Hill to be in two places at once.” The seniors also draw on their experiences from their four years in the drama department to advise and mentor the freshmen, he said.
“I love the fact that I can see how they grow over time,” he said. “I’ll be back to watch them over the next few years, and I’ll definitely be back when they are seniors.” Senior Hailey Detore, a Delhi Township resident, said she’s been looking forward to her senior year and helping with the freshmen musical since she was a freshman. “You feel like a mother in some way,” she said. “You’re helping all these little babies.” Detore is involved in the drama department’s technical
crew, and she said the seniors also help the freshmen with their hair and makeup, help them with their lines and help design the set. Ella Rivera, a freshman from Delhi Township who has one of the leading roles in the show, said it’s been great to work with the seniors. “It’s really fun. They teach you what to do and what not to do,” she said. “A lot of them are really good friends to us, so it’s not intimidating.” Freshman Austin Pfenninger, a Green Township resident who plays the pirate king, said

this is the first time he’s had a speaking role in a school performance. “I really like to act, and I had no idea I could sing,” he said. “When I came to high school I thought I would be in the band, but this is so much fun.” Rivera said all the freshmen who are involved in theater are close-knit. “It’s a great group of people,” she said. “I can’t wait to do shows with them for the next three years.” She and Pfenninger said the show is a funny musical with entertaining songs. “We hope people come see the show,” Rivera said. Hill said the freshmen have jumped wholeheartedly into the theater experience and it’s reflected in their performances. “The freshmen are extremely talented and very excited about the show,” she said.

Walk helps in finding cure for cystic fibrosis
By Kurt Backscheider
Teresa Connolly and her family want to make sure the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues making positive strides in the treatment of cystic fibrosis. The Delhi Township mother’s twin sons, Keith and Kyle, have cystic fibrosis, and for 27 years they’ve been overcoming obstacles from a disease that causes problems in the lungs due to mucus in the body becoming thick and sticky. Connolly and her husband, Bo, have seen treatments for the disease come a long way since their sons were babies, so they’ve stepped up to help organize the inaugural Westside Great Strides Walk to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The roughly 3-mile walk begins at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 2, at the College of Mount St. Joseph in Delhi. “The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has made amazing advancements,” Mrs. Connolly said. “We’re reaching out to people on the West Side who know families or have connections to people who have cystic fibrosis. We’re asking them to give back and help us support this wonderful foundation.” Alison Bethel, executive director of the foundation’s Greater Cincinnati chapter, said each year the organization looks to launch a Great Strides Walk, which is the foundation’s largest fundraiser, in a new community. They chose the West Side this year because it has a high population of
cystic fibrosis patients and many strong families who can provide the leadership it takes to put on the event, she said. Covedale resident John Wimmers and his wife, Hollie, are among those families helping organize the walk. Mr. Wimmers said their 5-year-old son, Jackson, has cystic fibrosis. He takes medications and enzymes three times a day and receives breathing
treatments throughout the day to clear the mucus from his lungs. “Let’s get this money for this research,” Mr. Wimmers said. “Maybe someday he’ll only have to take one enzyme a day.” Keith Connolly knows all too well what life is like for Jackson Wimmers. Keith said he takes about 30 pills a day, including enzymes, medicine for blood pressure and thyroid, and insulin for diabe-
tes. And two or three times each day he puts on an oscillation vest for about 45 minutes to clear mucus from his lungs, he said. The advancement in treatments for the disease allow him to exercise six days a week by running and lifting weights, he said. Keith said he and his brother, who also take part in the Great Strides Walk each year downtown, are looking forward to joining other West Side families in raising money for the foundation at the Westside Great Strides Walk.

KURT BACKSCHEIDER/THE COMMUNITY PRESS
Miami Heights resident Kim Seal, a longtime friend of the Connolly family, said she didn’t think twice about assisting with the walk. “Knowing what Keith and Kyle go through everyday, it’s the least I can do to help,” she said. Bethel said 97 percent of the money the foundation receives from donations and fundraisers goes directly to supporting research for new medicines and therapies for cystic fibrosis patients. Through the foundation’s efforts, she said the life expectancy of a child with cystic fi-
brosis has doubled in the last 30 years and research to find a cure is more promising than ever. “Three-fourths of our funding comes from Great Strides walks, which is why these walks are so important,” she said. The West Side walk aims to raise $35,000, and she said more than 200 people have already signed up to participate. She said those interested in walking or donating can email her at email@example.com.
WALK INFO The inaugural Westside Great Strides Walk is set for Saturday, June 2, at the College of Mount St. Joseph in Delhi Township. Check-in begins at 9 a.m. and the walk starts at 10 a.m. Alison Bethel, executive director of the Greater Cincinnati Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, said the event will feature a 5K walk around the Mount’s track. A light breakfast will be served to those who attend, and lunch provided by City Barbeque will be served when the walk is over. Bethel said a DJ will play music throughout the event, and a variety of activities will be available for the children in attendance. “It’s really family-friendly, and we encourage everyone to bring their kids,” she said. All participants are asked to solicit walk sponsorships. For more information, or to register, visit http://cincinnati.cff.org/greatstrides.

tions, including Mike and Mark LaRosa from LaRosa’s. Mastruserio said a new restaurant has been added to this year’s lineup, Pittsburgh-based Tambellini. “We also added Italian cheese coneys as a new food item,” he said. “CincItalia is the best of Cincinnati and Italy, so we took the cheese coney and gave it an Italian twist.” A heritage display of Italian history in Cincinnati is a feature of the festival, as well as Italian dancing, a wine garden and coffee/ espresso bar. Music has been at the center of Italian culture for centuries, and Mastruserio said Sal Ventura and Dr. Zoot will perform Friday night, The EuroRhythms and Michael Sutherland will perform Saturday night and Ray Massa will take the stage Sunday.

Converting the traditional parish festival into an Italian cultural festival has been a success for St. Catharine, so the parish has once again teamed up with several Italian societies to sponsor the three-day event. “It’s been a great move for us,” Mastruserio said. “Last year we had the best Friday we’ve ever had, and Saturday was still a good night despite some rain.” Restaurants like Gabby’s Cafe, Dolce Vita Cafe and LaRosa’s will offer Italian cuisine, as will members of the Sons of Italy in America, the United Italian Society and La Societa Fuscaldese Femminile.

feature added this year is a comedy show, Mastruserio said. Comic Steve Caminiti, who was once voted Funniest Man in Cincinnati and Funniest PErson in Ohio, will perform his “Goombas and Goodfellas” show on Saturday night. On Sunday, members of the San Antonio Italian Church will join St. Catharine parishioners for a traditional Marian procession and blessing. “We try to celebrate all the good things of Italy, as well as the heritage of the Italian immigrants who came here and started their own traditions,” Mastruserio said. “It’s a great time, and it’s the opening of the festival season.” For more information about the festival, and a complete listing of the schedule of events, visit www.cincitalia.org.
Plenty of choices to get festival season off to good start By Kurt Backscheider
The West Side is festival central this weekend. Three Catholic parishes are hosting their annual festivals Friday, May 1,8 through Sunday, May 20. St. Catharine of Siena in Westwood has its CincItalia festival at Harvest Home Park, and St. Aloysius Gonzaga in Bridgetown and Our Lady of Victory in Delhi Township will each host their parish festivals on their church grounds. While it seems three events on the same weekend, on the same side of town, might harm festival attendance numbers by splitting up the crowds, organizers of the events aren’t overly concerned. “There’s enough to go around,” said Dave Bauer, a Bridgetown resident who helps organize the St. Al’s festival. “I don’t see us hurting each other.” He said St. Catharine’s Italian festival draws a different type of crowd than the traditional parish festival at St. Al’s.

“Their Friday night is a great night because it’s adults only,” Bauer said. Joe Mastruserio, who co-chairs the CincItalia festival, said St. Catharine and St. Al’s will have their festivals on the same weekend this year, as well as the next two years, because of the way weekends fall on the May calendar. St. Catharine usually has its festival the first weekend following Mother’s Day, and St. Al’s and Victory try for the weekend before Memorial Day. Since there is only one weekend in between Mother’s Day and Memorial Day this year and in 2013 and 2014, Mastruserio said the festivals will fall on the same weekend. Mastruserio echoed Bauer’s assessment that the festivals are different in nature and draw separate crowds. He said St. Al’s will likely see a lot of families attend their Friday night session because CincItalia is open to adults only on Friday night. “It’s not a contest to see who can do better,” Mastruserio said. Bauer said Victory’s festival in Delhi should have little impact on St. Al’s and St. Catharine, and vice versa. “We’re far enough away from each other,” he
said. “We’ll hold our own with the Bridgetown crowd and they’ll hold their own with the Delhi crowd.” One common thread all the organizers share is that they’ll be praying for good weather, he said. Linda Heidi, secretary to the chancellor at the Cincinnati Archdiocese, said the archdiocese is not involved in the scheduling of parish festivals. She said parishes set their own festival dates. The only festival guidelines the archdiocese has in place are for items like gambling, beer and rides, she said. CincItalia runs 6 p.m. to midnight, Friday May 18; 3 p.m. to midnight Saturday, May 19; and 1-9 p.m. Sunday May 20. St. Aloysius Gonzaga’s festival, which features live music by the Rusty Griswolds and the Menus, runs 6:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. May 18; 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. May 19; and 3-10 p.m. May 20. Our Lady of Victory presents its festival, featuring live music every night and a chicken dinner on Sunday, from 6-11 p.m. May 18; 5-11 p.m. May 19; and 3-10 p.m. May 20. Victory also has a poker tournament that starts at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 17.

Westwood pharmacist drug of choice – laughs By Kurt Backscheider firstname.lastname@example.org
Nicholas Hoesl believes laughter is the best medicine, so he’s helping people get their doses. The Westwood resident recently published his third humor book, “Laughter: The Drug of Choice.” Hoesl, 79, a lifelong West Sider who makes his living as a pharmacist, has also authored “The First Humorously Medical Dictionary” and “Jest Desserts of Cincinnati’s 50 Plus.” His newest work is a collection of funny quotes, quips, poems and musings he’s acquired throughout his career in the medical
field. “I’ve been saving material ever since I graduated from college,” said Hoesl, who Hoesl graduated from University of Cincinnati’s pharmacy college. “Whenever I would hear funny stories or one-liners from patients or other pharmacists or doctors, I would scribble them down. “I thought, ‘Gee, I have enough for a book.’” A jack of all trades, Hoesl has led a diverse life and brings his sense of humor to every task at hand. An Army veteran who
served in the Korean War, Hoesl has also been a Peace Corps volunteer in Afghanistan, a singer in the Southern Gateway Chorus, a longtime member of the West Hills Toastmasters Club and a certified chimney sweep. “I was probably the only pharmacist/chimney sweep in the country,” he joked. He’s also earned a broadcasting degree and served on WCET’s speaker’s bureau, presented seminars on global volunteering at UC’s Institute of Learning in Retirement and ran several marathons and races dressed in outlandish costumes – most notably as a pig in Cincin-

Dennis Dinkelacker said it feels great to be back on Cheviot City Council. The veteran Cheviot politician returned to council May 1 as the Ward 2 representative. Council members unanimously voted to appoint Dinkelacker as the replacement for Matthew McGowan, who resigned in April. Cheviot Law Director Mark Waters said McGowan resigned because he is moving out of Cheviot. Waters said McGowan is getting married and will live in the Fairfield area with his wife. “In this instance, by statute, the vacancy is to be filled by the majority vote of the remaining council members,” Waters said. Dinkelacker, a professional land surveyor, served12 years on council – eight as the Ward 2 representative and four as an atlarge councilman. He lost his bid for re-election to his at-large seat last November, when newcomers Jeffrey Baker and Amy Richter were elected as at-large members along with longtime at-large Councilwoman Kathleen Zech. “It was disappointing losing the election,” Dinkelacker said. “But the people spoke.” When McGowan resigned and the opportunity to return to his old seat as Ward 2 representative arose, Dinkelacker said he quickly agreed to come back to council. “I was very happy to do

His book is also sold at Joseph-Beth Booksellers and online at Amazon.com. “A lot of people don’t laugh anymore,” Hoesl said. “People should laugh more, and I feel I’m an instrument to help them.”

Teacher selected for program Second-grade teacher at C.O. Harrison Jennifer Murphy has been selected to participate in the Cincinnati/Munich teacher exchange program through Hamilton County Educational Service Center (HCESC) June 10-23. “I am very happy to have been chosen to participate in this amazing program. It has been wonderful to compare teaching experiences with colleagues who have such a unique perspective. Although there are many differences between the German and American educational systems, there are even more similarities,” said Murphy. Six Cincinnati teachers were selected from a variety of school districts and positions from elementary and middle school teachers, school counselors, and ESL teachers, to intervention specialists. On April 2, Jutta Hoewel, English and German teacher from Munch, Germany, visited Murphy’s class. She shared general information about her school and the country and answered student questions. The most popular requests were asking Hoewel how to pronounce an English word in German. Students asked about words such as birthday, gingerbread, mountain, classmate, mystery, clock, zebra, relationships, and thunder. They also questioned

New scout troop formed on the West Side By Kurt Backscheider email@example.com
The West Side has a new Boy Scout Troop. The Oak Hills Kiwanis Club recently chartered Boy Scout Troop 44, which is comprised of 12 scouts who attend school in the Oak Hills Local School District. “It’s very exciting,” said Green Township resident and Troop 44 Scoutmaster Joe Wermes. The troop came together in April, and he said they’ve already had two great camping trips. He said their next outing later this month is horseback riding in Metamora, Ind. “We have a lot of activities scheduled,” Wermes said, noting his three sons are members of the troop. “We’re just trying to get
more kids involved in scouting.” Steve Schinkal, who is president of the Oak Hills Kiwanis Club, said the club was happy to sponsor a new Boy Scout troop for boys on this side of town. “The Kiwanis as an organization has always been involved in scouting on a national and state level, but this is the first time our club has chartered a new troop,” he said. “We look forward to continued association with them and all the good things to come. “We’re planning to work together with them to help them do some fundraising and allow them to have a good scouting experience that benefits the community as well.” Wermes said he appreciates the Kiwanis Club’s
Boy Scout Troop 44 was recently formed on the West Side, chartered by the Oak Hills Kiwanis Club. Members of the troop include, back row from left, are Scoutmaster Joe Wermes and Trey Wermes; middle row, Justin Wermes, Ryan Leonard, Zack McRae, Ricky Brown and Connor Taylor; and front row, Ben Murray, Ronnie Wermes, Cameron Smith, Adam French and Patrick Walker. Troop member Casey Cundiff is not pictured. THANKS TO JOE WERMES
generosity in stepping forward to charter the troop. “Everyone involved
realized it would be a good fit,” he said. Troop 44 meets at 7 p.m.
on Tuesdays at Diamond Oaks career campus, 6375 Harrison Ave., Green
Township. Membership is open to any boy age 11 to 18, or any 10 1/2-year-old who have completed their Arrow of Light requirement in Cub Scouts, Wermes said. Troop members have the opportunity to be involved in monthly camp outs, attend the Boy Scout summer camp, take part in community service projects and experience hobbies, activities and skills to which they might not otherwise have exposure, he said. Scouting helps boys mature and is a great way for them to develop life skills and learn responsibility, he said. “It really is a great organization,” he said. Those interested in joining Troop 44 should contact Wermes at 382-8361.

Mercy drama students perform at grade schools Senior Kids Tour shares actors talents Each spring senior drama students at Mother of Mercy High School have the opportunity to share their talent with local grade schools. Mercy’s Senior Kids Tour presents a fun, interactive and educational show that is designed to bring an awesome theatrical experience to grade schools. This spring, the tour stopped at Our Lady of Visitation, St. Aloysius Gonzaga, St. Bernard Taylor Creek, Our Lady of Lourdes, St. Jude and St. Teresa of Avila and performed for kindergarten through fifth grade. This year’s performance, “Mother Nature Takes Back the World,” was a 45-minute show written, produced and performed by senior drama students. Mother Nature and her crew were ready to create the perfect summer vacation when the Evil Cloud Cadets stole the Great Weather Book in an effort to make it rain all summer. It was a delightfully fun performance that had the audience eagerly waiting for Mother Nature and the Nature Nook employees to stop the Evil Cloud Cadets.
Not only did Mother of Mercy High School’s Bowling Team have a great 2011-2012 season on the lanes, they also excelled in the classroom. Mercy’s varsity team was ranked in the top three of the season with a final match play record of 23-2. The team won the GGCL, the Crossgate Sectionals and had two state qualifiers. The most important part of this winning team, though, was its members outstanding academic standings. The Ohio High School Bowling Coaches Association gives out an award to any junior or senior who maintains a 3.5 GPA. Mercy had three juniors and three seniors who went beyond that qualification. Senior Amber Volmer and teammate Sarah Schwab are Mercy’s valedictorian and salutatori-
an, respectively, for the class of 2012. Senior Amy Feie, who tied the record for the highest bowling average in school history with a 195, also received the award for holding a GPA higher than 3.5. In the junior class, Megan Mitchell, Gabby Discepoli and Anna Lynd carry GPAs above 3.5. “These young ladies are true examples of what it means to be a student athlete,” said Denise Harvey, athletic director. “We celebrate their athletic successes and more importantly acknowledge their strong work ethics in the classroom.” These students lead the way in academic achievement and have set a high standard for the bowling team with a Varsity record of 84-6 and a Junior Varsity record of 54-3.

Following each performance, the actors hold a question-and-answer session and allow the students a chance to meet with them and learn how the script is determined and how costumes and props are created. If you are interested in having the Mercy Senior Kids Tour visit your school next spring, to contact Mercy at 513-661-2740. Mercy also offers two different theater opportunities for grade school students interested in the area of musical theater and drama. Theatreworks is a one-week summer
camp offered to boys and girls ages 7-14 and spotlights two categories, Fun with Acting and Musical Theatre. There are age group divisions in each category and no previous experience is required. The 2012 camp will run July 23-July 27 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Mercy’s Young Actors Academy (YAA) is a fourmonth after-school activity held in the fall for boys and girls in seventh and eighth grades. YAA is the program for junior high students with a team that builds an environment that
fosters creativity and teaches students to develop and explore their imaginations. The Fall 2012 Young Actors Academy will be every Tuesday afternoon beginning Sept. 18 and will conclude with performances with Mercy’s Sophomore Theatre Class on Jan. 3 and 4.

Rebuilding year for Elder tennis? Panthers end season with winning record
Elder sophomore Luke Groene has been a big part of the Panthers’ success this season. Ever since the move to the No. 2 doubles position with fellow sophomore Josh Patty, the duo has won seven of the final nine matches and been a deciding factor in multiple matches. THANKS
By Tom Skeen email@example.com
PRICE HILL — It wasn’t long ago that Elder tennis coach Glenn Wauligman said this season was a rebuilding year for his Panthers. While they didn’t go undefeated or win the Greater Catholic League, they did finish the regular season 10-8 after starting 3-6. Their first six losses came against Covington Catholic and Highlands, the top two teams in Northern Kentucky, as well as St. Xavier, Moeller, Turpin and Seven Hills, who ended the season ranked in the top seven of The Cincinnati Enquirer Division I or II coaches’ polls. As the tide turned for the Panthers, four of their final seven wins came against teams ranked or who were ranked in The Enquirer Divi-

sion I poll at some point this season. They lost eight seniors to graduation last season and two previous junior varsity players to other sports. The only two varsity returners were senior Nathan Wal-
roth and sophomore Andrew Cole. “I think when I paired (senior) John Miller with Cole, that is when things turned around,” Wauligman said. “You pair one guy with some experience with a guy who was a varsity player last year and they
just gelled together.” The two finished the season 6-4 after spending just half the season paired together. Another key move for Wauligman was moving sophomores Luke Groene and Josh Patty from No. 1 doubles to No. 2. “They were playing decent, but it seemed like they were always losing in three sets,” he said. “When I moved them, things started clicking and they just gelled. They are friends and it just took a couple of games and they just excelled.” According to Wauligman, the two have been deciding factors in multiple matches and have won seven of their last nine matches since moving to the No. 2 doubles position. The rock for the team has been Walroth. He is the Panthers’ No. 1 singles player and boasts a 15-6 record this season. He heads into sectional play as the No. 2 seed in singles action in the Division I Cin-
cinnati bracket. “We can always count on him for a win,” Wauligman said. “He’s one of the captains with John Miller. He is a four-year starting varsity player and is going to Bellarmine next year. He’s a solid player, no doubt. He’s overpowering compared to most players and others aren’t used to that. He just pounds the ball.” Senior Brandon Alverson has been another guy who has contributed to the team’s surprising success this season. “He has accepted his role as a durable singles player giving it all it takes every match,” Wauligman said. “Which has created a positive attitude to all around.” Rounding out the singles players is junior Tony Faillace. “He has been playing solid singles as well,” Wauligman said. “The never-quit attitude from Tony and his teammates has paid off for a successful season for Elder tennis.”

What is the purpose of the annual Westfest? been a success in providing a community atmosphere combining food and music. But there is more to the success than Ray Kroner COMMUNITY PRESS this. The proGUEST COLUMNIST ceeds from Westfest are funneled back into our community. This year alone the CWCA donated over $33,200 back to the community. Included in this is $10,000 for computers for the Cheviot library, $2,500 for pool repairs for the Cheviot community swimming pool, $5,000 contribution to assist P&G with the renovation project at the Cheviot Memorial Fieldhouse. Also, $1,200 has been donated to our eight elementary school libraries, which was presented at the CWCA’s 48th annual Outstanding Young Citizen’s Banquet. Through the CWCA’s association with the Thomas J. Rebold
Foundation $14,000 has been donated to area grade and high schools fine art programs. All of these activities are part of building/keeping a strong community. Organization for Westfest started months ago. We take into consideration a variety of issues, including but not limited to: festival strategies and concerns, community safety, and the effect on surrounding businesses. The CWCA meetings are held the third Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m. the next two meetings (May 16 and June 20) will be held at the Cheviot Council Chambers – 3814 Harrison, second floor. We look forward to seeing you this year. So, come as a patron or sign up as a volunteer – either way you are making a positive contribution. Ray Kroner is president of the Cheviot Westwood Community Association.
This is one team that found playing time in Price Hill. THANKS TO PRICE HILL HISTORICAL SOCIETY.
Baseball plays on West Side I just attended the Price Hill Oldtimers annual banquet at The Farm. What a fabulous celebration of this aspect of our history. Honoring past and current athletes is a most noble undertaking. My first recollection of our national pastime was seeing full-bearded ballplayers from the House of David running the bases at Dempsey Park back in the early 1950s. I lived on Price Avenue at the time and passed by the park every day. Baseball has been played on the West Side for as long as we have have folks living west of the Mill Creek. My research with the Price Hill Historical Society has led to knowledge of Andy Gallagher, born in 1870, not long after the area became known as Price’s Hill. He supposedly played Sunshine League ball on Sunday mornings at Dempsey Park until he was in the mid-70s, often catching both games of doubleheaders. The Price Hill Historical
Society has recently opened a baseball room in its museum at 3640 Warsaw Ave. Many of the photos on display, such as the one with this article, are from the collection of the abovementioned Price Hill Oldtimers. The plan of the PHHS is to improve this room creating a shrine to the oldtimers’ honorees. We could be the “Cooperstown” for West Side baseball. I am also planning to publish a book on baseball in the West Side.
We received an email from a women in Seattle asking if we had any information on her grandfather, John “Sunny Jack” Sutthoff. In researching his life I learned that he pitched for the Reds in 1901 and 1903. After he retired from baseball, he opened a bar on St. Lawrence corner where Eagle Savings and Loan building was until it burned down a couple of years ago. He lived in Price Hill most of his life until he died in 1942 at age 69. As far as I know, John “Honest Jack” Boyle, who caught for the Reds in 1886 and played until 1898, was the first West Side boy to make it into the “bigs.” His younger brother, Eddie, also played in 1896. If anyone out there knows any different, email me at the Price Hill Historical Society at email@example.com; photo 513-251-2888. Richard Jones is a member of the Price Hill Historical Society.

As we approach the festival season it’s good to look at what is accomplished by hosting them. The Cheviot Westwood Community Association (CWCA) is preparing for the 11th annual Westfest. If you are new to the area, it’s the twoday festival that is held at Glenmore and Harrison avenues. This year it will be held on June 23 and 24. The first goal of this festival is to showcase area restaurants and local music while providing a unique setting for the community to gather. Shutting down a major thoroughfare for a party has proven to attract attention. The participating restaurants are eager to present what they have to offer. The music covers many genres, so there is something to please everyone. (This year there will be three stages). In keeping with the community spirit all the participating bands donate their time. From the first year on, Westfest has
Long yard sale passes this way The 13th annual U.S. 50 yard sale from Ocean City, Mary., to Sacramento, Calif., is from Friday to Sunday, May 18-20. The 3,073-mile sale has something for everybody. Communities are having other celebrations in conjunction with the yard sales. In Colorado, Montrose is closing Main Street for sellers. In Poncha Springs, they planted trees for Arbor Day and are cleaning up the town. In Maysville, the Red Schoolhouse is raising money for its renovation. In Canyon City, they are celebrating Betty Fremont Kamuf COMMUNITY PRESS County’s Sesquintennial. GUEST COLUMNIST In Nevada, Carson City is also having a carnival and health and safety fair. In Dayton, a car show. In Odin, Illinois there will be an old fashioned ice cream social. For the people that travel Highway 50 from coast to coast there is timeshare rentals equipped with kitchens and bedrooms for the same price as standard hotels. In Ohio, Riverside Civic Club will be participating at the Gilday Recreation Complex. For more information e-mail email@example.com. Sayler Park Recreation Center was to participate, but the person in charge was laid off, and there is no one to coordinate it. However, you can participate if you want to. Just put up a sign on River Road with your address and hours and set out your items out in your yard. There is no charge or set time. The sales are limited only by what can be legally sold at garage sales. No one is allowed to set-up, sell or park on the state right-of-way at any time. U.S. 50 is a very busy highway in some areas and other areas almost deserted. Safety is a major concern with cars turning on and off the highway. All sellers are asked to provide parking spaces for their cus-
SPECIAL COLUMN This is my 150th column and in four months it will be five years since I started writing again for Community Press – Sept. 12, 2007 was my first one. The first original one I wrote was in March of 1988. I wrote two columns then – one for Sayler Park and one for entertainment.
tomers somewhere else then the state right-of-way. The yard sales have no large sponsor. Promotions are being done by word of mouth, and social media by the people and communities who are participating. The official yard sale is over three days. There are no set hours, because advertising set hours usually never give the results the seller wants. It is also probable that many individual households will not decide to participate until just a day or two before the sale dates, without time to advertise. The best option for buyers is to locate a participating county and then just head down the road. The yard sale started in 2000, stretching across most of Indiana. The goal is for it to grow into a large coast-to-coast event held each year on the weekend before the Memorial Day. The Great U.S. 50 Yard Sale also serves to promote tourism along U.S. 50, and to unite the many diverse communities. It provides opportunities for fund raising by civic organizations, to aids the environment through recycling what would end up in the trash. Best of all it provides a low-cost opportunity for individuals to enjoy a great weekend of sales. The national coordinator for the U.S. 50 Yard Sale is Tom Taylor of North Vernon, Ind.; email him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want fore information about who is participating go to www.route50.com. Betty Kamuf is a winner of Griffin Yeatman Award for Historical Preservation. She lives in Sayler Park. You can email her at email@example.com.

The batter for these bran muffins can be kept in the refrigerator and baked on an as-needed basis. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.
Bran muffin batter can be kept in refrigerator When the kids were younger and something went haywire in their lives, they would wonder why. I would say “there’s a reason for everything.” Those are what we call “teachable moments.” Well, the same thing happened to me yesterday at suppertime. I asked my husband, Frank, if we had gas in the grill since I had a nice flat iron steak thawed out. The answer was “yes,” so he took the steak out to the grill. Then the answer got switched to “no.” We were out of gas. I didn’t want to use the stovetop grill pan (too messy) so I used the broiler. Oh my gosh, the steak turned out perfect. And I can’t tell you how long it’s been since I broiled any kind of meat. Now I’m a fan of broiling again. So even when you’re older, there are still teachable moments.
Broiled flat iron steak
I’ve mentioned before how much I like this cut of meat. It has the tenderness of beef tenderloin and the beefy flavor of chuck, since it is part of the chuck. This method works for flank steak as well. Score steak with knife on both sides. Rub with olive oil, then rub in a bit of garlic on each side. Season with salt and pepper. Broil 4 inches under broiler, about 6 minutes or so on each side for medium.
Always-ready refrigerator bran muffins The batter can be kept tow to three weeks in the refrigerator. Next time I make the batter, I’m
going to use part whole wheat flour. My batter lasted two weeks Rita before I Heikenfeld used it up. Not a real RITA’S KITCHEN sweet muffin. I love having this batter on an as-needed basis. 3 cups whole bran breakfast cereal (not flakes) 1 cup boiling water 1 cup brown sugar, packed 1 stick butter 3 large eggs 2½ cups all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon baking soda ½ teaspoon salt 2 cups buttermilk (I used whole buttermilk) 1½ teaspoons vanilla Extra sugar for sprinkling on top (raw sugar is good) optional
Add water to cereal and stir until cereal is moistened. Set aside. Cream brown sugar with butter until smooth. Add eggs and beat until light. Stir in flour, baking soda, salt, buttermilk and vanilla until blended. If not baking at once, transfer to container, cover and refrigerate 2-3 weeks. When ready to bake, spoon mixture, about ¼ cup for each muffin, into buttered or sprayed muffin tins, filling 2⁄3 full. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or so until golden. Variations: Sprinkle one tablespoon of any of these over each muffin before baking: Chopped dried fruit, blueberries, chocolate chips, nuts or a combination of two.
You can plant different kinds of herbs together in the same container as long as they have the same soil, water and light requirements. Flavors of sweet and savory herbs do not transfer. Basil: Plant basil next to your tomatoes for better tasting, healthier tomatoes. Basil helps keep flies and mosquitoes away. Mint: Really invasive, so best grown in a container. Mint keeps ants away. Spearmint is sweeter and more mild than peppermint. Thyme: A pretty border herb. Deer generally stay away from areas where thyme is grown. Oregano: A few wet oregano sprigs, placed on grill before grilling red meats, may help block carcinogens that form. Savory: The bean herb, it helps you digest beans. An ingredient in salt-free herb blends. Rosemary: Good for memory and contains anti-cancer antioxidants. In our area, it is hardy to about 15 degrees outside, so bring indoors in winter.

St. Vincent de Paul sponsors clean out days this weekend The Society of St. Vincent de Paul will host Clean Out & Donate weekends to collect critically needed household items, furniture and clothing. A SVDP truck will be on-site Saturday and Sunday, May 19 and 20, at the St. John, Dry Ridge; St. Vivian, Finneytown; Our Lady of Visitation, Bridgetown; and St. William, Price Hill. The collection truck will be attended before and after church services for donor-convenience, and donor tax receipts will be available. Donations collected from the Clean Out and
Donate are distributed in the surrounding communities through St. Vincent de Paul thrift stores to benefit those in need throughout Greater Cincinnati. St. Vincent de Paul volunteers personally visit needy families and offer assistance, regardless of race or religious affiliation. St. Vincent de Paul accepts donations of gently used clothing, household items, furniture and cars year-round. The thrift stores are currently experiencing low inventory on clothing and household items, includ-
ing small appliances. Sales of these items directly fund St. Vincent de Paul’s social services to neighbors in need. Free pick-up service is available for large items. Call 513-421-CARE (2273) to arrange a pick up, or donations may be dropped off at any of the six Cincinnati area thrift stores. Tax receipts are available for donated items. For more information on donating or for a list of St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Stores, go to http:// www.SVDPcincinnati.org/.
Update: Brown Hotel Hot Browns
The original recipe contains 1 quart whipping cream. I understand now the recipe can be made with 2 cups, if you like. Someone asked if they could substitute milk. Yes, half-amd-half, whole or regular milk would work fine. The sauce won’t be as rich, so you might want to add a bit more flour.

A baby peregrine falcon doesn't like being contained as Diana Malas with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources holds the 18-day-old bird before she is banded at Duke Energy's Miami Fort Station in North Bend. CARA OWSLEY/THE COMMUNITY PRESS
Baby falcons back home Gannett News Service NORTH BEND — A trio of baby peregrine falcons “peep-peep-peeped” in protest as officials put bands on their tiny legs to keep track of the threatened species. Duke Energy and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Wildlife fetched the trio of 3-week-old birds Thursday from their nest 400 feet above the Miami Fort Station.
Officials affixed two bands to the birds. One band bears a national serial number used for tracking. A second band, used to identify the falcon, is marked with two colors, each stamped with a large alphanumeric code that can be seen from a distance. Then officials returned the babies to their nest, where their mother was keeping vigil for the little birds. State officials say they know of 36 pairs of
nesting peregrine falcons in Ohio. The plant has had nesting activity since 1998, five years after employees built and installed a nesting box to attract the falcons. The babies will retain their fuzzy white down feathers until early June. Then they will learn to fly and hunt. For more “falcon facts,” visit http:// ohiodnr.com/ wildlife/dow/falcons/facts .aspx.

Women talk money, investing Women live longer, earn less and save less for retirement, and need to establish a financial plan that incorporates the need for long term health care costs, said Lisa Baab, financial planner who lives in Colerain Township, at a recent Kehoe Financial Advisors presentation for women. Baab presented “Six Things Women Need to Know about Money” April 26 to a dozen women at the Kehoe office in Springdale. She said women need to become involved with their spouses or partners in creating a financial plan that incorporates their financial needs as they grow older. The average American woman lives to be 80 years old, and the average man lives to be 75, according to recent national demographic data. About 90 percent of women eventually become solely responsible eventually for their financial affairs, yet women often lack confidence in making financial decisions, and tend to defer those decisions to the men in their lives. Also, Baab said, women make up 87 percent of all long term health care recipients, and need to incorporate long term health care expenses into their financial portfolios. The “Six Things” Baab identified that women need to know about money include: save and reduce debt; create a financial plan; invest for your future; generate personal
Area women learned about the “Six Things Women Need to Know about Money” at a recent presentation by Kehoe Financial Advisors at the company’s office in Springdale.

documents; build a longterm health care (LTC) plan; and envision retirement. “Women can build wealth and knowledge at any age,” said Steve Kehoe, founder and partner at Kehoe Financial Advisors, in a question-and-answer period. “But there’s a lot you can do 10 to 15 years before retirement. It doesn’t matter how much money you have today; the most important thing is to create a financial plan and get started saving and investing. Successful investing in real estate is based on location, location, location.
Building a successful financial portfolio is based on discipline, discipline, discipline.” Baab said Kehoe has identified three “buckets” of retirement revenue that become streams for the financial needs of retirees: income for day-to-day living; a “golden years” lifestyle; and financial legacy for heirs. » Living – Retirement requires stable income from Social Security, pensions and annuities to cover the basic needs of life. Needs during retirement include: rent or mortgage; utilities; car; clothing and
health care. » Lifestyle– These funds make a difference between sustenance living and putting the “gold” into the Golden Years, said Baab. Revenue from equities, real estate, growth and bonds can provide a financial cushion for the good things in life: vacations; dining out; gifts; and even a second home. » Legacy – Many of us have parents who sacrificed spending money on themselves during retirement to leave a larger inheritance for family, but found that medical costs in the last three years of life drained their estates. Life insurance; taxes; trusts; and surplus assets provide funds for family, philanthropy and the government. Raffles followed the presentation. Cinda Gorman of Green Township and Leslie Hoekzema of Newtown won bottles of premium cabernet and chardonnay from Buena Vista Winery in Sonoma, California. Carol Clevidence of West Chester won a $100 Mitchell’s Salon and Day Spa certificate.

ing in the neighborhood was like when you were a kid? Laffalot Summer Camps owner and director Pat Nymberg does and she tries her best to bring it back. “When we started running camps almost 24 years ago,” says Pat Nymberg, “the micro-organizing and specializing of kid’s sports was in full swing.

fun, and keeping active through a variety of activities and sports. In the 1960s and ‘70s kids used to go out and start up their own games in neighborhood back yards. It’s a shame that’s not really happening much anymore.” However, many ingredients used by those old “backyard neighborhood games,” are now part of the recipe Laffalot uses to make their camp unique. With 23 years of camp experience, a degree in physical education and health, 16 years in teaching, more than 30 years of coaching, and 20 years raising her own children. “ That is the mindset that Laffalot uses to continually improve their program; give the campers variety, make the games fun, and let them play. It is Laffalot’s blend of fun and athletics, which includes traditional sports as well as many non-traditional games, like scooter basketball, crazy ball and base chase, that attracts campers and brings them back year after year. Laffalot Summer Camps will be held at Seton and Elder high schools the week of June 11-15 as well as Visitation School (July 30-Aug. 3), St. Vivian (July 9-13), and St. Ignatius (July 23-27). The cost for a child is $102 per week. Camp runs from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. For a complete listing of 2012 Laffalot Summer Camp locations visit www.laffalotcamps.com
