BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Tragic turn leads to parents’ fight By Carrie Blackmore Smith firstname.lastname@example.org
A decade ago, traffic jams got so bad at times on Harrison Avenue at Interstate 74 in Green Township that the line of vehicles would back up onto the highway. Irate drivers cursed the quagmire, created by a wave of new residents and visitors to new shopping developments in the area, including a Kohl’s store, which left them sitting bumper to bumper – sometimes through a succession of lights at Rybolt Road. State, county and township officials rushed in, adding lanes and reconfiguring the corridor at a cost of $6.6 million. Even today, though, the intersection causes problems. Over the last three years, Harrison and Rybolt had the worst rate of accidents of any in suburban Hamilton County, an Enquirer analysis of county data shows. That rise, and persistent pressure from a father who lost his daughter in a 2010 crash there, prompted a recent review of crashes by officials at the Hamilton County Engineer’s Office, who think they’ve uncov-

CHEVIOT — City residents are invited to spend an afternoon and evening celebrating the community at Harvest Home Park. Cheviot officials and members of the Cheviot ROCKS committee are organizing the inaugural Cheviot Family Day to give residents an opportunity to get to know their neighbors and experience what the city is all about. The family day runs 4-8 p.m. Wednesday, June 4, at the city park, 3961 North Bend Road. “This event is being held for residents to ensure we live up to our motto of ‘Big City Spirit, Small Town Charm,’ ” Ward 4 Councilman William Clark III said. Festivities include free swimming in the Cheviot Municipal Pool, a demonstration by the Cheviot Police De-
partment K9, Charlie, and a bicycle safety course for children who bring their bikes. The city will also have its fire engines, police cruisers and public works trucks on display for children to explore. Clark said there will be several games for children, a pickle eating contest sponsored by Maury’s Tiny Cove, live music by local bands, a cookie baking contest for residents and an interdepartmental chili cook-off among the police, fire and public works crews. Residents who want to enter the cookie baking contest can bring two dozen of their best cookies to the park from 2-3 p.m. Cookies will be judged and the best cookie in Cheviot will be awarded, Clark said. Food will be available for purchase for a nominal charge – dinner for about $1 per person, he said. A highlight of the celebration will be the dedicaSee CHEVIOT, Page A2

Green Twp. to fix 11 streets this summer By Kurt Backscheider
GREEN TWP. — Eleven township streets will get facelifts this summer. The township is repairing the streets as part of the 2014 street rehabilitation program. The board of trustees approved a resolution at its last meeting to advertise for bids for the project. Green Township Director of Public Services Joe Lambing said the cost of this year’s program is an estimated $1.3 million. The township will use tax increment financing

funds to pay for the work, he said. Each winter Lambing and two mainteLambing nance foremen drive along all the neighborhood streets the township is charged with maintaining and rate the surface conditions. Lambing said they then get together and determine which streets are in most need of repair. Streets identified for repair this summer will be resurfaced and get new curbs where needed. This winter’s weather was fairly harsh on all township streets overall, but Lambing said the winter didn’t impact which streets will be repaired. The township generally has a good idea which residential streets are due for repair a couple years in advance, and while this
WESTERN HILLS PRESS
winter didn’t result in any streets requiring immediate repair, he said some streets were pushed higher on the priority list. For example, there are a few streets the township didn’t plan to resurface until 2017, but they may now need attention in 2015 or 2016, he said. Lambing expects the township to receive bids by early June, and he said construction for this year’s program should begin in mid-June. All the work is expected to wrap up by November, he said. Residents who live on streets getting repaired will receive a letter detailing the construction schedule for their street, Lambing said. No detours will be in place, but he said residents may likely experience some minor construction inconveniences. Green Township is responsible for maintaining 512 residential streets throughout the township.

tion of Harvest Home Park’s new fitness trail, he said. “We are striving to provide more recreation for children and adults within our city,” Clark said. Caroline Statkus, Cheviot’s economic development director, said community development is more than just revenues and businesses. It’s also about social experiences and helping people feel part of the community, she said. Many city businesses are donating goods and services, or providing them at cost, as a way to give back to the community. Clark said Up Up & Away Comics will give free comics to children, R&R Quality Meats is donating food, as is Lenny’s Fruits and Vegetables, and CVS will provide free water to those in attendance.

St. Teresa students raise nearly $11K with walk-a-thon PRICE HILL — Students at St. Teresa of Avila School surpassed their goal for this year’s walka-thon fundraiser. Each spring the St. Teresa Parent Teacher Group organizes the walk fundraiser and donates the money to the school. This year’s walka-thon was April 25.

Michael Urbisci is happy the wheels of change are beginning to turn. Maybe it will save another father from his grief. Four years ago, Urbisci’s 20-year-old son, Alessandro, was driving with his 22-year-old sister, Melissa, in the passenger seat. The two had just signed a lease on an apartment and excitedly talked about living together. As Alessandro turned left onto Rybolt from Harrison, a pickup truck entered the intersection and collided with the siblings’ car. Melissa, a nursing student at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College and a popular Zumba instructor, didn’t survive. Soon after the crash, Michael Urbisci approached Green Township officials to share his concerns. “Was the yellow light too short?” Urbisci asked. “Is 40 mph an appropriate speed limit?” Officials listened, but
REHABILITATION. LONG-TERM CARE.
Students walk up and down Rulison Avenue in front of the school to earn money. After this year’s walk they enjoyed music, games and shaved ice. Representatives from Q102 stopped by the school to kick off the walk with a pep rally. Colleen Roth, president of the Parent Teach-
er Group, said they set a goal to raise $10,000 with this year’s walk. The students raised $10,988. She thanked the many area businesses who supported the Parent Teacher Group in sponsoring this year’s fundraiser. “It was a great success,” Roth said.

at the time the intersection was brand new, completed less than a year before. There wasn’t enough data to stipulate change, they told him. “I knew it would happen again,” Urbisci said. “Unfortunately, I was right.” This February, Thomas Brooks, 28, died in another crash. He too was a passenger, killed in a left-turn collision. Urbisci, accompanied this time by Brooks’ parents, again demanded that officials reconsider traffic patterns at the intersection. This time, the statistics showed a disturbing trend: Seventythree accidents have been reported at Harrison and Rybolt in the last three years, according to the county engineer’s office, 22 of them between a car turning left and a vehicle approaching from the opposite direction and 19 of them in one particular lane. What has presented itself is a “grossly imbalanced” crash rate in the far right lane, closest to Kohl’s, between vehicles that turn left into the shopping center and vehicles in the curb lane that intend to drive through the intersection and onto a ramp to I-74, said Hamilton County
Engineer Ted Hubbard. “In the last three years we see the imbalance get even more significant,” Hubbard said. The engineer’s office is analyzing traffic patterns to determine whether or not to protect all left-hand turns from this spot, meaning oncoming traffic would always have a red light when cars are turning left. It would cost almost nothing to reset the lights, Hubbard said. The other option is to make the curb lane a right turn-only lane, but that would disrupt the flow of traffic onto the interstate, Hubbard said. The analysis should be completed in coming weeks, Hubbard said, but any change at that light will likely increase the amount of time motorists spend at the intersection, and with the traffic volume, he also anticipates an increase in rear-end collisions. Urbisci is only partly satisfied. His daughter died turning left the opposite direction, but officials say the accident rate there doesn’t rise to the threshold of changes. “I am hopeful the crashes will be reduced,” Urbisci said, “if not, I hope they will be willing to reconsider.”

Get Hearing Help From a Pro Hearing health affects a man’s lifestyle, and if he wants to stay active, feel younger, and remain socially and professionally engaged, he should address any hearing loss he may be experiencing. This is the message The Place for Better Hearing and the Better Hearing Institute (BHI) are delivering to men around the country in support of National Men’s Health Week, which leads up to and includes Father’s Day. This year, National Men’s Health Week runs from June 9 through June 15. Studies show that men who address their hearing loss – with the use of hearing aids or other appropriate treatment gain an improved quality of life. Hearing Aids help them maintain a more engaged, active lifestyle at both work and home. Fortunately, the vast majority of people with hearing loss can beneﬁt from hearing aids. In fact, eight out of ten hearing aid users say they’re satisﬁed with the changes that occurred in their lives speciﬁcally due to their hearing aids. Hearing aids are highly effective, sleek, and sophisticated electronic devices that can help men stay actively connected to friends, family and even certain cell phones. Control your hearing experiences with Halo™, the breakthrough Made for iPhone® Hearing Aid and our personalized TruLink™ Hearing Control app. Halo hearing aids are engineered to work with your iPhone, iPad® and iPod touch®.

No one around you needs to be affected. Audiologists Dr. Laurie DeWine and Stefanie Godbey of The Place for Better Hearing are committed to helping you understand your hearing loss and ﬁnd the best solution for your lifestyle. Audiologists are highly educated professionals trained in anatomy and physiology, ampliﬁcation devices, cochlear implants, electrophysiology, acoustics, physics of sound, and auditory rehabilitation. Audiologists receive extensive training in the assessment and diagnosis of hearing loss as well as the ﬁtting and adjustment of hearing aids. Upon completion of college and graduate school, audiologists must also pass a national standardized examination in order to be eligible for a Certiﬁcate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and state licensure. Many people who ﬁt hearing aids are not audiologists. Some are hearing aid dispensers and they are licensed to perform hearing tests for the sole purpose of selling and ﬁtting hearing aids. Hearing aid dispensers are required to have a high school diploma and pass an exam.

BRIEFLY Oak Hills leaders attend heroin summit
Several Oak Hills Local School District administrators, community members and Highlander stakeholders attended the first heroin summit for schools at WorthingtonKilbourne High School in Columbus in late April.
The program began with remarks from Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and Ohio Governor John Kasich. After hearing several different speakers, including parents who recently lost their children to drug abuse, the attendees split into teams to talk about their communities and the rise of heroin usage among
teens and young adults. “The district plans to work with local officials in hosting a local summit to discuss the increase of heroin use in our community,” Oak Hills Superintendent To

Deadline to apply for Homestead Exemption is June 2
Cheviot Eagles host benefit concert
Hamilton County Auditor Dusty Rhodes announced the deadline for applying for a significant property tax reduction is coming up. Applications for the state’s Homestead Exemption must be made by Monday, June 2. Every property owner who is 65 or older, or is permanently disabled, is eligible for the exemption. Annual tax savings under this program in Hamilton County range from about $350 to $740 per property owner. The exemption results in no loss in taxes to communities or schools as the reduction is made up by the state. Rhodes said it is espe-

Titled “Lil’ Bit Country, Lil’ Bit Rock n’ Roll,” the concert features the vocals of local singers and music by Taylor Sunderhaus. The concert takes place at the Eagles hall, 3807 Glenmore Ave. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Proceeds from the concert support the Eagles and their efforts to assist the community. Tickets are $5 each. Tables of eight or more are available and must be reserved prior to the event.
Oak Hills sets special board meetings
cially important this year for owners who turned 65 before Jan.1and may have overlooked the program. If they don’t apply by June 2 they have to wait until next year and will be subject to a new income test. This is the last chance to get in the program regardless of income. The state legislature has re-established an income test for property owners who turn 65 on or after Jan. 1, 2014. Those with annual incomes over $30,500 (not counting Social Security payments) will no longer be eligible for the program. Existing Homestead Exemption recipients will not be affected nor will those who were 65 prior to January 1, 2014, provided they are already in the program or they register for it before June 2 this year, Rhodes said. Call the auditor’s office at 946-4099 for an application or with any questions about the Homestead Exemption program.
The Oak Hills Local School District Board of Education announced four upcoming special board meetings. The board is expected to conduct the majority of the meetings in executive session to discuss personnel. Special board meetings are set for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 24; 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 25; 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 8; and 8 a.m. Monday, July 14. All meetings will take place at the district office, 6325 Rapid Run Road.

Western Hills students visit Fidelity campus to learn financial skills More than 100 Western Hills High School students will be more prepared for their futures, thanks to volunteers with Fidelity Investments. The eighth-grade students from Western Hills High School participated in Junior Achievement’s Economics for Success financial literacy program at Fidelity Investments’ campus in Covington. As part of the program, students spent the day participating in hands-on activities taught by more than 50 Fidelity employee volunteers and in sessions focused on personal financial literacy concepts, business and economic fundamentals, and workplace competencies. “Our goal is to ensure that more students have access to basic financial education concepts and that they are more prepared for their futures,” said Nicole Gordon, manager of community relations for Fidelity Investments. “It’s important to prepare them now so they’ll make smarter financial decisions down the road.” Through the Economics for Success programming, the Western Hills High School stu-

CINCINNATI — Entering their Division I sectional final game against Mason, the Oak Hills High School baseball team boasted a fielding percentage just under .950, but coach Chuck Laumann saw that number dip after his guys committed four errors in the first two innings against the Comets en route to a seasonending10-2 loss May 22 at Jack Adam Stadium. “When you give them six unearned runs and give (Mason pitcher Rodney Hutchison) a six-run lead, you just can’t overcome that,” Laumann said following the loss. “He gets into a groove and he can throw anything he wants without any pressure on him.” Hutchison limited the Highlanders to just one earned run over six and twothirds innings. “Me personally, it was a disappointment,” Laumann added. “I had a lot of confidence coming into the game.” Oak Hills had Mason’s number throughout the season despite losing two of the three games the teams played this season. The Comets scored three runs late in the game to win the first matchup between the two teams 6-3 April 12 before the Highlanders won at Mason 11-4 two weeks later. When you throw in the result of the third game it summarizes the Highlanders’ season.
“It was a roller coaster,” Laumann said. “We had some very positive things happen, had some kids do some great things and go above and beyond the call of duty from the leadership perspective and performance perspective.” The loss marks the careers of nine seniors. It’s a group Laumann’s watched grow since they were in little league. “I’ve had a special relationship with a lot of them,” he added. “(I’ve been) coaching (my son) Ben, Jake Collinsworth, Cejay Henson and Matt Baas since they were 5, 6, 7 years old since Little League. Watching this group grow and go out together with the success they had this year is great, but just seeing them go, they’re going to be missed.” Elder High School had similar fate to that of the Highlanders. After both teams went scoreless for the first seven innings of their Division I sectional final game against Lakota East, the Panthers allowed 10 runs to in the top of the eighth inning en route to a 10-0 loss to the Thunderhawks May 20. Shane Smith pitched a flawless seventh innings before exiting the game after allowing a run in the top of the eighth. Elder ends its season at 19-8 after capturing the schools’ first Greater Catholic League title since 2006.

Leg injury won’t keep Elder’s Ratterman grounded By Tom Skeen email@example.com
PRICE HILL — Don’t let the boot on Joe Ratterman’s left foot fool you. The Elder High School senior has been dealing with a stress fracture since the beginning of the season, but it hasn’t slowed his progress in the pole vault just yet. He has the best vault in Southwest Ohio by nearly two feet at 15-feet-1-inch, just five inches behind the best vault in the state. After capturing his first outright Greater Catholic League title May 14 helping his Panthers to their first team title since 2009, there are now bigger goals in sight. “I’m trying to win state and still trying to reach 16 feet,” the senior said. “I’m working on a bigger pole and trying to get up a little higher.” Switching to a different pole
isn’t the norm at this point in the season, but due to the leg injury it’s a change coach Brian Flaherty deems necessary to win a state title. “The problem is he’s been blowing through some of the lower poles so now he’s trying to get on the bigger poles which will give him the extra push at the top to get him over16 (feet),” the coach said. “Because he doesn’t have as much speed coming in because of his leg, he has to use that 15’-185 pole to give him the catapult he needs to get up and over 16.” After clearing 14-6 and with the title in hand, Ratterman gave the new pole a shot at GCL’s but failed in his attempt at 15 feet. Flaherty believes it’s nothing practice can’t cure and he has good reason to believe so. After failing to make height for GCL’s as a freshman, Ratterman put the work in during the offseason, and as a sophomore shared a GCL title on his way to

a district title. As a junior, Ratterman finished second at the regional meet en route to an 11th-place finish at state. He expects the same kind of
improvement as a senior despite dealing with the injury. “I worked out a lot more this offseason trying to get ready,” Ratterman said. “I tried to run a lot more but the stress fracture
slowed me down a little bit. I’m practicing once or twice a week, but I’ve still been doing fine in meets. I only feel it when I press on it a little bit, but I’m still trying to get higher this year.” The state experience from a season ago is something the senior will rely upon if he’s fortunate enough to get back to Columbus. “As a sophomore when I qualified for regionals, I was really nervous and then last year I was fine there, so I think this year should be a lot better (at state),” he added. Despite the injury, the goals for this season haven’t changed according to Flaherty. “He’s got a shot at the state (title),” the coach said. “At the beginning of the year we were thinking school record which is 15 feet, 10 inches and then competing for the state championship. If he had the opportunity to work more he could be at 16 feet.”

Competition brings best out of La Salle’s Bell By Tom Skeen email@example.com
MONFORT HEIGHTS —
The thought going around La Salle High School track and field camp just a week ago was that Tim Bell’s season was over. Someone failed to tell Bell the news. Bothered by a nagging hamstring injury all season, the senior came out at the Division I district meet May 21 and leaped 23-feet-11.75-inches in the long jump, for what is said to be the second longest jump in the state, according to oh.milesplit.com. The longest jump occurred at the same meet when Fairfield’s Herman Brunis cleared 24 feet. “I thought he came out and did what he was capable of doing,” La Salle coach Frank Russo said. “He’s extremely athletic and, to be honest with you, he’s done very little from a preparation standpoint within the last week because of the injury.” While very happy with his performance, don’t think for one second Bell’s pleased with finishing second. “I felt great,” Bell said after the competition. “I’ll get to see Herman Brunis once again. He got me today, but hey, that’s what competition is all about.” For Bell’s first trip to state to become a reality he must place in the top four at the regional meet May 28-30 at Dayton’s
La Salle senior Tim Bell competes in the boys long jump at the Division I track meet at Winton Woods May 21.TONY TRIBBLE/FOR THE COMMUNITY PRESS
Welcome Stadium, but Russo put all that aside when he sat his senior down for a chat just a couple days before districts. “I had a long talk with Tim in terms of embracing this opportunity in his life and that there’s a finality to his senior year and that he’s not going to experience this type of energy and excitement and a feeling of community spirit the rest of his career,” Russo said. “Me seeing athletes come and go for the last 31 years, I thought maybe we needed just a talk between he and I on just valuing the next three weeks and embracing them.” Embrace the moment he has. Bell rested his hamstring and decided against jumping at the Greater Catholic League Championships, where he was the two-time defending champion in the long jump, so he could wash away the heartbreak of last season and
reach that state meet for the first time in his career. Last year, Bell was part of the 4x200-meter relay team that missed qualifying for state by .07 seconds and the 4x100 relay team that missed state by .01 seconds. After going over 23 feet at GCL’s as a junior, Bell dropped his back foot at regionals for a disappointing jump of 21feet-5-inches placing him 10th, well out of statequalifying position. “It’s noticeable he has a lot of pop in his legs right now,” the coach said. “His legs are fresh. From that standpoint that’s really going to enhance, hopefully, his next few performances all the way through the state meet.” As for Bell, the glowing smile after the competition said it all. “I love my chances,” Bell said about going forward in the postseason.

Middendorf enjoys home support in Freedom debut By James Weber firstname.lastname@example.org
FLORENCE — Like many players in the Frontier League, Dave Middendorf doesn’t realistically think he will throw a pitch in Major League Baseball. That is why the 25year old lefthander is focused on a more concrete and immediate goal – winning a championship in the independent baseball league. Middendorf is in his first year with the Florence Freedom, who swept a three-game series from Washington to open the 2014 season and were 3-0 heading into play May 20. “I most enjoy all the guys and how we get along,” he said. “We don’t have any ‘me, me’ guys. We’re just playing to win. All of us are trying to get picked up by an affiliated team, but with me, I know the road is coming to the end and I want to win a championship.” Middendorf came close to a league title last year. He pitched for the Lake Erie Crushers last year in the same league, helping lead them to the championship series. Schaumburg swept the finals, 3-0, last year, and Middendorf was set to pitch the fourth game in that series after throwing twice in the semifinals, including the decisive fifth game.
Dave Middendorf pitches in his Florence Freedom debut May 16. THANKS TO THE FLORENCE FREEDOM
Middendorf was 12-7 last year with a 2.60 earned-run average in 21 games, 19 of them starts. A Cincinnati La Salle graduate and Northern Kentucky University standout, Middendorf was traded to the Freedom in the offseason and is thrilled to be back. “It’s pretty good to be home,” he said. “When I left affiliated ball, I felt like I was going to be going to the Freedom. I felt like it was meant to be, but last year it didn’t work out. It’s a good feeling. It’s nice to go home to your own bed at night.” Middendorf is coming off a successful first start with his new team May 16 in the second game of the year. He
went seven innings, scattering four hits and giving up only two runs in a 6-2 win over Washington. The left-hander threw 93 pitches, 58 of them for strikes. His next start was set for Friday, May 23, at Schaumburg, the same team he didn’t get to throw against in the 2013 championship series. He enjoyed playing in front of family and friends in Florence. He had about 10 supporters there, and said there would have more except his parents were on an anniversary trip to Florida. “I felt pretty good Friday,” he said. “I didn’t really have the jitters like I would normally
have in other starts. I was pitching at home and comfortable. I’m not a hard-throwing guy, I’m more of a contact pitcher and I need to concentrate.” Middendorf has plenty of experience in the Freedom’s home park, UC Health Stadium, as that was NKU’s home field for part of his tenure with the Norse. The pitcher of the year in the Great Lakes Valley Conference and the Midwest Region his senior year in 2011, he helped NKU win two league championships and was also a firstteam All-American in NCAA Division II. His 127 strikeouts in 2011 set a new single-season record at NKU and were good for second among all Division II pitchers. He also set a career mark for strikeouts with 349 over his four years with the Norse. His 25 career wins rank third all-time at NKU and his 2.53 career ERA is fourth. “I loved the dog pile after winning a championship,” he said. “I had a strikeout record but winning championships is huge for me.” Middendorf was drafted in the 22nd round of the 2011 MLB Draft by Kansas City and pitched two years in the Royals’ system.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The city of Cheviot would like to invite all our residents to the inaugural Cheviot Family Day at Harvest Home Park Wednesday, June 4, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. All residents are able to swim at the Cheviot Pool for free on that day. We will also have food available for a nominal charge – dinner for about a $1 per person. We will have games for the children and a bicycle safety course for those that bring their bicycles. Our very own police dog, Charlie, will give the attendees a demonstration of his abilities. There will be fire trucks, police cars and public works vehicles for all to see and the kids of all ages to sit in one. The fire, police and public works will have an interdepartmental chili cook-off for bragging rights of the best cook. We also will have a cookie baking contest for residents to submit their best cookies to be judged and awarded for the best cookie in Cheviot (bring two dozen to the park from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.). We will have a pickle eating contest at 7 p.m. to determine the best pickle eater in Cheviot, with the pickles being donated by our very own World Famous Maury’s Tiny Cove. Live, local music acts will also perform for your enjoyment throughout the evening. A dedication of our fitness trail at Harvest Home Park will be the main event this year, as we are striving to provide more recreation for children and adults within our city in the upcoming year. This event is being held for residents to ensure that we live up to our motto of “Big City Spirit/Small Town Charm.” Many businesses in and around Cheviot have either donated or provided at cost their goods and services to give back to the community as well. Some will be at the event to showcase what we have to offer here in our city. We would like, as a city, to put this event on every year as a way for our residents to come together as a community and share in fun activities with your neighbors. With the city being about 1 square mile in size, we can get to know many of our neighbors and celebrate our community in many ways. This is just one way and hopefully many more to come. William Clark is a member of Cheviot City Council.

You can fight back against teacher contract The Archdiocese of Cincinnati has amended teacher contracts so that they can be terminated for specific conduct deemed immoral or even expressing opinions about select subjects. So no gays allowed nor support of gay rights, no artificial insemination or supporting that idea, including abortion, sex out of wedlock, and even belonging to organizations whose messages are incompatible with Catholic doctrine (Republicans? Democrats? NRA?). This has nothing to do with what teachers say and do in class and on school property; it goes to their homes, their bedrooms, their Facebook pages and Twitter accounts. Check a “Like” button supporting gay marriage on a Facebook post? You’re fired! Run in a Komen 5K to fight breast cancer? Fired? What if you “Like” an ultrasound picture from your
daughter who finally was able to get pregnant using artificial insemination? Teachers have been fired for blog Brian posts supportSullivan COMMUNITY PRESS ing gay marriage and for GUEST COLUMNIST getting pregnant using artificial insemination. So who knows? And who decides? While there is a small minority of Catholics who might applaud this and make their voices heard, there is a silent majority who are more tolerant. And while the teachers cannot stand up and be heard for fear of being fired, the rest of us need to. Even though Pope Francis is trying to change the focus of the Church to the essence of what Jesus was about, some, like Archbishop Dennis
Schnurr apparently, are still obsessed with our pelvic regions and controlling opinions about these sensitive issues. Thugs (like the Taliban and Putin) curtail freedom of speech to maintain control, our Church leaders shouldn’t. Is our faith really too flimsy to withstand allowing the freedom to express opinions outside of school? Some of our best teachers are refusing to sign the contract and be a part of this McCarthy-type witch-hunt. I was privileged to read a letter from one such veteran teacher. He was eloquent in his support of fellow teachers, students, administration, and friends who the Archdiocese is now saying he can no longer support. It pained him to leave his students but how could he be a part of telling gay students they are lesser? Where is the morality in this? What would Jesus do? Would Jesus associate with
and care for these people? Jesus said nothing about homosexuality and artificial insemination, but he has told us how to behave towards one another, and it was the opposite of what the Archdiocese is commanding of our teachers. Archbishop Schnurr refuses to meet with groups who want to help change the wording. So what can we do? We can vote with our pocketbooks. Replace the money you put in that envelope each Sunday with a note saying you support our teachers. And maybe we will choose a Sunday that we can all do this together. Sign a petition at Sullyville.com/petition. Write a letter to the Archdiocese. Let your voice be heard. Unlike our teachers, you have nothing to lose. Don’t let intolerant extremists chase away our best teachers. Brian Sullivan is a resident of Green Township.
Covedale recognition effort gains support Recently “Price Hill” property owners received a post card invitation to attend a meeting at Holy Family School to help “revitalize Price Hill.” The March 22 event, coordinated by Xavier University’s Community Building Institute, was hosted by the city’s planning department and Price Hill Will. During the focus group session Covedale residents said, “recognize Covedale” to support the Covedale Neighborhood Association’s mission: “People dedicated to retaining the history, value, beauty and pride in the Covedale community, while promoting the advantages of
their neighborhood for the sake of its future.” In the past, City Hall and the Price Hill Civic Club has turned a Jim deaf ear to Grawe COMMUNITY PRESS our expressed viGUEST COLUMNIST sion to again have Covedale recognized as an official neighborhood with formal boundaries. Accordingly, Price Hill Will has followed this lead by giving our wish a cold shoulder response. However, we are pleased to say that at this public forum, Price Hill loy-
alists within the room supported the Covedale Recognition Effort. Subsequently, Covedale representatives have met with Valarie Daley of Xavier’s Community Building Institute, to educate her on this important matter. As expected she gave us her thoughtful attention. Now she has a better understanding, and respect, for the history, value, beauty and pride of the Covedale community, and is willing to continue a dialogue. As the accomplishments of the Covedale Neighborhood Association’s mission are made more public the recognition effort continues to gain the support of the entire west
side community. This effort, I believe, represents the best of our west side culture; a self-sufficient, independent attitude that respects our God-given right of self-determination. On a personal note I salute the “Proud Covedale Resident” mantra. The dedication to improve one’s neighborhood in a patient, persistent manner – with dignity, is a time tested strategy that continues to move Covedale forward in a positive direction. Jim Grawe is the co-founder of the Covedale Neighborhood Association. He can be reached at email@example.com.
CH@TROOM May 21 question What’s your favorite summer event in the area? What do you like about it?
“Paddlefest, as it a unique way to see the city and the river, hopefully without getting run over by a barge or go-fast boat. All of the local farmers’ markets. I am not necessarily a rabid proponent of ‘buy local,’ but if you are going to buy fresh vegetables and breads, etc. anyway, why not buy them from local small business people? The best thing about summer in Cincy is that is is all easily accessible.” Mark Fertitta
“The annual July 4th Independence Day Fireworks off Springdale have been great. I hope they can be sustained financially as the event is good for the entire family as is the Taste of Colerain. The summer athletic events at Haubner Field in White Oak are a nightly event.” T.D.T.
“Summerfair. Been going since the 1970s when it was a tiny little event in Eden Park. Just love walking around looking at all the creative works.” Gail Shotwell Chastang
“During summer: Fireworks on July 4th in Independence!

May 14 question What advice would you give to graduating high school and college seniors?
“1. Never lie to you “2. If it seems too hard, you are doing something wrong “3. Sometime in your life live on the East Coast, but leave before you become too hardened; and sometime in your life live on the West Coast, but leave before you become too soft. “4. If you can’t fix it with a hammer, clearly it is an electrical problem. “5. Always use your turn signals so the world will know which way you are headed.” “6. It doesn’t matter if the glass is half full or half empty,
obviously the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.” M.J.F.
“1. Be proactive. 10 percent of life is made up of what happens to you; 90 percent by how you react. Choose to see mistakes as opportunities to learn and know that with every choice comes consequence. You are the programmer. “2. Be grateful and always try to show appreciation to someone who has been kind or helpful to you. This is not only the right thing to do, it also demonstrates the all important self confidence prospective employers are looking for. “3. Network, network, network. Use your social media

skills to your advantage while always being mindful that it’s likely that whatever you post is being seen by many different sets of eyes. “4. When you learn something, have a spirit of generosity and get others involved and aware of what’s going on currently vs. hiding it away in a self protective mode. “5. Be an empathic listener. Too many people listen with the intent to respond vs really hearing what is being said. In fact go one step further and listen with the eyes for feeling. “6. Differentiate yourself. You are a brand, with equity. Develop it and strategically market it.” GarySullivan@gjsphotoart

20 Oak Hills students win in
he Ohio PTA, through the National PTA, holds an annual cultural arts program, Reflections. Children in preschool through grade 12 are encouraged to create and submit works of art in six areas: literature, visual arts, photography, dance choreography, film/video production and musical composition. The Reflections program allows PTAs throughout the state to recognize children for their creativity in portraying yearly themes. Teachers, parents, children and the community can get involved in enhancing art education through the Reflections program. This year’s Reflection theme was “Believe, Dream, Inspire.” The students interpreted the theme in one of six areas which interest them such as literature, photography, dance choreography, musical composition, visual arts and video/film production. The students are given guidelines to follow such as what kind of media to use on the visual art entries, sizes, format of DVDs for film, videos, music and dance entries. The students complete their entries on their own without parent or teacher help. Some of the schools offer after-school sessions so students have the supplies available to them. This year the students in grades K through 12 submitted 118 entries for judging. Judging is based on how well the student interprets the theme via their artistic merit, and mastery of the medium. Oak Hills Local School District had 56 winners who were selected from all the entries and forwarded to Hamilton County for judging at that level. This year, Oak Hills Local School District had 29 winners at the Hamilton County. Those entries were on display at the open house at the Hamilton County Educational Office in February. Those 29 winners and other winners from various schools were forwarded to the Ohio PTA for judging. Those results should be back in April. The state winners will be notified by a special invitation and honored at the evening dessert in April. Each year all the Reflection entries are on display at the Best of Oak Hills in the front lobby. Afterwards the entries are returned to each respective school for recognition from their PTAs. The students are encouraged to enter a “Theme Search” contest each year and told what the following years theme will be, which is “The World Would Be a Better Place If....”

Wm. Powell Co. helps build Sean Casey Field
The Wm. Powell Co. is teaming up with a group of eight local companies to build Sean Casey Championship Field on Cincinnati’s West Side. Powell Valves, a supplier of valves since the company’s founding in1846, is contributing financially toward the new field at 6453 Bridgetown Road, next to Dulles Elementary School in Bridgetown. The effort is a partnership with the Cincinnati
Reds Community Fund, which has helped renovate more than 350 baseball fields across Reds Country. The new field will be home to West Side Champions, a nonprofit sports organization for teams of fourth- througheighth-graders in baseball, basketball and football. Chuck Squeri of West Side Champions says there aren’t enough ball fields for youngsters on the
West Side and that the Sean Casey field will help alleviate the shortage. The new baseball diamond will include dugouts, a doublewidth batting/pitching cage and lights, which will allow night practices, games and tournaments. West Side Champions is relying on corporate contributions (both financial and in-kind resources) and volunteer labor to keep costs at a minimum.
“We are excited to be a part of this great project for youth in our community who want to pursue America’s great pastime,” Randy Cowart, president of Powell Valves, said about the sponsorship. “Baseball not only is a fun sport, but it teaches kids teamwork skills and good sportsmanship. It also encourages them to develop a strong work ethic and to be competitive, and that will help them in
school and later in life.” Powell, at 2503 Spring Grove Ave. in Camp Washington, is joining corporate sponsors such as Skyline Chili, LaRosa’s Pizzeria and others to build the baseball field. West Side Champions teams compete in the Southwest Ohio Baseball League, the Cincinnati Knothole Select Traveling League and Cincinnati Knothole Competition League.

Honey cider drink can help allergies Are your allergies kicking in? Mine sure are, and as much work as we have outdoors in the vegetable and herb gardens it’s not, as Martha would say, “a good thing.” My friend and Cincinnati Magazine marketing director Chris Ohmer said it Rita best. “I’m Heikenfeld living RITA’S KITCHEN from tissue to tissue.” Well, I’ve got a natural home remedy that might help Chris and others who are affected by seasonal allergies. I can tell you this: My “potion” sure helps me get through these pollen-laden spring days.
Easy and effective honey cider allergy drink First thing to know: Never give honey to children under the age of 1 year. And if you’re going to make this drink, make it with raw local organic honey and organic raw apple cider. The reason? For the local honey, bees collect pollen from your area and this helps builds up in your system. If all goes right, you could become immune to the pollen in your area. As far as the organic apple cider goes, it’s not refined and distilled and it is thought to block
Homestead exemption deadline June 2 Hamilton County Auditor Dusty Rhodes says the deadline for applying for a significant property tax reduction is coming up. Applications must be made by Monday, June 2. Every property owner who is 65 or over or permanently disabled is eligible for the state’s homestead exemption. Annual tax savings under this program in Hamilton County range from about $350 to $740. This exemption results in no loss in taxes to communities or schools as the reduction is made up by the state. It is especially important this year for owners who turned 65 before Jan. 1 and may have overlooked the program. If they don’t apply by June 2 they have to wait until next year and will be subject to a new income test. This is their last chance to get in the program. The legislature has reestablished an income test for property owners who turn 65 on or after Jan. 1, 2014. Those with annual incomes over $30,500 (not counting Social Security payments) will no longer be eligible for this program. Existing Homestead Exemption recipients will not be affected nor will those who were 65 prior to Jan. 1, 2014, provided they are already on the program or they register for it before June 2 this year. Please call the auditor’s office at 513-946-4099 for an application or with questions about the exemption program.

would publish this favorite recipe again. Some of you will recall that Tony’s recipe, as well as my version, are in my Recipe Hall of Fame. “A result of over a dozen attempts, and I think it is very close to Frisch’s,” Tony told me way back when. Tony also noted the soup is best if allowed to rest for 2-3 hours after cooking or next day. I’ve made it with mostly broth and just a bit of water and it is really good that way, too. 4 tablespoons vegetable oil 1 cup onion, diced 1/2 cup each diced: carrots, celery 1/2 cup each frozen vegetables: peas, corn, cut green beans, baby
histamine reactions. It also contains healthy enzymes, vitamins and minerals. It can help lower your cholesterol and blood pressure as well. For every cup of warm or chilled water, stir in: 1 generous tablespoon each local raw honey and organic apple cider vinegar. Add a squeeze of lemon for extra vitamin C if you want. Drink a couple times a day, or more if you’re outdoors a lot. Recipe Hall of Fame: Tony Palazzolo’s version of Frisch’s vegetable soup. I can’t remember which class I was teaching, but a student came up and asked me if I
barley, bring back to boil, lower to simmer partially covered for another 30 minutes or until potato, rice and barley are done. Add salt and pepper. Readers want to know: Are lilacs edible? Yes, as long as they’re “clean” not sprayed, etc. They taste as good as they smell. Right now I’m gathering some to crystallize with egg white and sugar. I’ll let you know how they turn out.
