BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
Cheviot launching new city logo
Branding aims to show vision and pride in city By Kurt Backscheider

Green developing speed hump policy Residents say drivers going to fast By Kurt Backscheider firstname.lastname@example.org
Angie Ferguson said she fears for the safety of her daughters and the other neighborhood children who play outside on her Green Township street. She lives on Orchardpark Drive in Monfort Heights, and said her street is a racetrack for drivers who speed through the subdivision as they cut through between West Fork and North Bend roads. Ferguson was one of a dozen residents who attended the Green Township Trustees meeting Monday, June 25, to voice support for the installation of street humps on some township streets. “I’m definitely in favor of street humps,” she said. “I’d like for my daughters to be able to use our front yard.” Trustee Chairman David Linnenberg said the board is looking into establishing a policy regarding street humps because many township streets have requested street humps as a way to address speeding problems.
There are more cars on township streets now than there were 20 years ago, and he said drivers are using residential Linnenberg streets as cutthroughs and shortcuts to get around the major intersections in the community. “We need to make sure our residents feel safe in their West yards,” he said. “Ideally, people would take it upon themselves to slow down when driving, but realistically we’re probably going to have to follow the city of Cincinnati’s guidelines for street humps.” Green Township has street humps on two township streets – Monfort Heights Drive and Beechtop Drive. Linnenberg said the township has heard both positive and negative feedback about the existing speed humps. The purpose of Monday’s discussion was to gather additional input from resi-
dents. Don Luebbe, who has lived on Childs Avenue for more than 50 years, said he’s in favor of street humps because he doesn’t want to see a child killed by a speeding car. “How do you stop the speeders on Childs,” he asked. “People fly through there.” Both Luebbe and Ferguson said the speed limit on their streets is 25 miles per hour, but it’s not unusual to see cars zipping through at 45 miles per hour. Although the Green Township Police Department issued more than 5,000 citations for moving violations in 2011, Police Chief Bart West said it’s difficult for his officers to be everywhere. The police department simply doesn’t have the manpower to constantly run radar on streets where speeding is a known problem, he said. “I wish there was an easy answer to it,” West said. “The biggest complaint we receive from people is speed everywhere. “As the years go by, people are less considerate. I would ask everyone to slow down when they’re driving through subdivi-

Cheviot residents will see a new city logo popping up around the community. City officials adopted a new logo for Cheviot as part of the process to update the city’s brand and spark economic development. There are two variations of the logo, both featuring the words “Cheviot” and the city’s tag line, “Big City Spirit, Small Town Charm.” One variation has white letters on a dark blue field, and the other has dark blue letters on a white field. Both variations also feature yellow circles as a contrast color. “Community branding is more than just marketing,” said Cheviot Economic Development Director Caroline Statkus. “It communicates local civic pride and a vision, as well as generating favorable attention – all of which are critical to economic growth.” She said the city started the branding process in 1999 when city council adopted the “Big City Spirit, Small Town Charm” tag line, but the graphic logo on the city’s flag didn’t match up wit the new tag line. She said the old logo displayed a white table cloth, wheat and potatoes in a basket. “Although the graphic represented Cheviot’s Harvest Home Park in the 1800s and early1900s, it was time to devel-
op a new image reflecting modern-day Cheviot,” she said. Cheviot Mayor Samuel Keller said Erin Snape, a Cheviot resident who works as a graphic designer, volunteered to design the city’s new logo. Snape developed several options capturing the essence of the city based on key words and phrases identified through public input, including entertainment, vitality, walkable, festivals, heart of the West, proud city services and home town spirit. “We were very pleased with her stepping forward to assist us,” Keller said. Statkus said the Cheviot ROCKS Committee selected three of Snape’s designs as finalists for the new logo and forwarded them to city council, who made the final decision. “The new logo along with the tag line provides a consistent message that identifies the city of Cheviot to the world,” Statkus said. “You’ll be seeing the Cheviot logo around town more and more.” Keller said the city will gradually implement the new logo on items such as stationary and vehicles as those run out or need to be replaced. “Branding is obviously important now for companies and cities,” he said. “This will bring us into the modern era.” Statkus said as part of the second phase of the city’s streetscape renovation, Huntington Bank donated $10,000 to purchase eight heavy-duty, decorative trash receptacles for the business district. The trash receptacles will soon be installed, and each one will display the city’s new logo along with Huntington’s logo.

sions, and ask people to respect their neighbors.” Linnenberg said the township will review which streets simply cannot have street humps due to the impact it would have on fire and ambulance response times, and develop detailed criteria for how to go about installing street humps. Township leaders also plan to examine the possibility of increasing police presence on cut-through streets and whether stop signs can be placed in cer-
tain areas, he said. “The ultimate goal is to get people to slow down,” he said. Trustees Tony Rosiello and Rocky Boiman said they support street humps being installed on township streets, as long as the majority of the residents on those streets have signed petitions requesting them. “I think the residents should have a say on their streets,” Rosiello said. Township officials will look into the issue this summer, and Linnenberg said he would like to have a plan for the board to consider at its first meeting in September.

Children explore Catholic faith at St. Al’s By Kurt Backscheider
through a variety of games, crafts, videos and Bible lessons. Goedde said each day featured a Bible lesson, and one of the activities each day was to act out that lesson. The entire week was centered around a sky theme this year, and she said the overall lesson was about trusting God. She said the children learned to trust God no matter who they are, no matter how they feel, no matter what other people do, no matter what happens and no matter where they are. “The kids really have fun,” she said. “I enjoy working with the kids and seeing their faces.” Running a week-long program attended by more than 100 children is a lot of

Students in preschool through fifth-grade spent a week of their summer connecting with their faith at St. Aloysius Gonzaga in Bridgetown. The parish hosted its sixth annual Vacation Bible School June 25-29. “The week is all about faith sharing,” said Green Township resident Kim Goedde, a St. Al’s parishioner who coordinates the Bible school each year. “The kids come together to teach each other how to share their faith.” She said 111 children, ranging in age from 3years-old to fifth-grade, took part in this year’s program. For three hours each morning the children explored their Catholic faith
Mercy High School names new principal David Mueller is the new principal at Mother of Mercy High School. He was named principal by Mercy president Kirsten MacDougal, according to a statement from Mercy High School. Mueller comes to Mercy from St. Xavier High School where he has served as principal the last 19 years. With a bachelor’s in English from Yale University, he first joined St. Xavier in 1978 as an English teacher and later became department chair. Then earning his MBA in Management from Xavier University in 1986, he soon moved into administration as the assistant principal for academic affairs and finally became principal in 1993. “I treasure my many friends at St. Xavier, and I look forward to developing deeper relationships in the Mother of Mercy community,” Mueller said in a
statement by Mercy High School. “It’s a blessing for me to be part of two remarkable Mueller Catholic PROVIDED. education traditions – the Jesuits and the Sisters of Mercy. The Sisters of Mercy have put their stamp on me at formative times. I have vivid memories of kindergarten with Sister Mary Jacinta at the former Mercy Academy, and I learned much from the example of the sisters at Our Lady of Mercy Hospital in Mariemont, where summer jobs helped me work my way through college. I’m anxious to find out how the charism of the Sisters of Mercy will touch me now.” Mueller also served as a board member and chair of Mission and Planning Com-
mittee, Jesuit Secondary Education Association from 1995-2001, as a state council member of North Central Association/AdvancEd, and currently sits on the boards of St. Catharine of Siena School, Queen City Foundation, and the Jesuit Virtual Learning Academy. “God has certainly blessed the Mercy community with Dave Mueller becoming our new principal,” said MacDougal. “He has left an amazing legacy at St. Xavier where many of their most impressive programs of academic and cocurricular excellence came to fruition under his leadership. His commitment to continually advance student learning and support professional development of faculty has enabled St. X to become not only a local leader of Catholic education, but also the largest private school in the state of Ohio.”
work, and Goedde said this year 27 adult volunteers and 37 youth volunteers, ages sixth-grade and older, pitched in to help with the Bible school. One of those volunteers was her son, Nick, who is entering his freshman year at Morehead State University. He said he first started taking part in Vacation Bible School when he was 5, and this is the sixth year he’s volunteered at St. Al’s. “It’s a lot of fun,” he said. “The kids are funny.” He said it’s neat to watch the children come in shy on the first day and break out of their shells throughout the week as they grow and make new friends. “They really enjoy it,” he said.

Donation helps wokr program continue By Kurt Backscheider email@example.com
Young people in Addyston are able to gain some real-world work experience this summer thanks to a donation from Ineos. Addyston Mayor Dan Pillow said the manufacturing company located across the street from the Addyston municipal building made it possible for the village to offer its summer youth work program this year. “We’re not exactly cer-
tain when our summer program began, but we think it’s been around for 45, maybe 50, years,” he said. “It’s been a tradition in our community for a long time.” Village council had to cut the program this year because there simply wasn’t enough money in the budget to fund it, he said. That’s when Ineos stepped in and gave the village $20,000 to keep the program going. “Ineos has been a tre-
mendous neighbor,” Pillow said. “The way they’ve stepped up to be a part of our community is Pillow wonderful. We’re excited to have them as a neighbor.” He said the summer work program gives teens ages 14 to 18 the chance to earn some money while learning the responsibility that comes with having a
job. “Our objective is to prepare our kids in the village for the workplace and allow them to gain some hands-on experience,” he said. “We stress being on time for work every day, and we have an extensive list of rules for them to follow.” The program is only open to teens who live in Addyston, and he said those interested are required to submit an employment application and obtain a work permit from
school. Pillow said there are 20 teens, eight of whom are girls, who are participating in the six-week program this summer. They are in their third week of work. He said they work from 7 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday, and they do everything from painting traffic lines on the streets to pulling weeds from sidewalks to cutting grass on village property – typical work the maintenance department handles. “They are an extension
of our maintenance department,” Pillow said. “They are capable, with supervision, to do almost anything.” He said he can’t stress enough how grateful the village is to Ineos for allowing the valuable program to continue this summer. “We really feel our ultimate goal is to give our kids a good idea of what the workplace is really like,” he said.
Olympic table tennis player to coach clinic Monica Boylson
Samson Dubina, 28, demonstrates the Robo Pong, a robot to practice table tennis skills. Dubina will be at the College Hill Recreation Center Saturday, July 14, to coach beginners and pros. THANKS TO SAMSON DUBINA.
Table tennis aficionados and basement pingpong players can learn tips and techniques to perfect their game during a table tennis clinic hosted by the Cincinnati Training Camp at the College Hill Recreation Center. U.S. National Men’s team member and men’s singles finalist Samson Dubina will coach participants in two table tennis sessions beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 14. Space is still available for the clinic. One session is $50 and two sessions are $90. During the first session, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., Dubina

will demonstrate proper footwork, blocking and other maneuvers. The second session deDubina signed to develop serving, returning and game strategy is from 2-5 p.m. Cincinnati Table Tennis Association vice president Jim Bracht, 70, Delhi Township, played table tennis with Dubina and raved about the opportunity available at the recreation center. “This is a rare opportunity. Samson is Olympicsranked and the top-rated table tennis player in Ohio,” he said. For Bracht, whose granddaughter will partici-
pate in the clinic next Saturday, it will be a chance for him to catch up with an old rival. “When they told me I was going to be playing Samson, I thought it was going to be a big guy, but he was only about 14,” Bracht said of his first game against the Akron native. While Bracht beat the young Dubina then, he said it wasn’t long before his winning streak was over. “One of the first guys I ever played in a tournament with was Jim,” Dubina recalled. In 14 years, the 28-yearold’s skill level has changed. Because Dubina is the top-rated player in the state, his only competition is a robot, aptly named Robo-Pong. The robot acts much like a tennis serving machine. Ping pong balls are
served across the table and can mimic styles of Olympic and high-rated table tennis players or can be used to provide basic training. Dubina will bring two robots as well as an assistant coach to the College Hill program. “For a lot of people this will give them the boost to get beyond the basement level,” Dubina said. To register for the program, visit www.samsondubina.com, click on “Upcoming Tournaments and Clinics,” and then “Cincinnati Clinic, July 14th” to access a registration form. Forms must be printed out and mailed to Dubina at the address listed on the form. Any additional questions should be directed at Dubina via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

X students learn out of classroom this summer Interns work at agencies and non-profits Most college students use summer to earn some extra cash, travel and relax. But for 20 Xavier University students, it is a time of intense learning and service in the Greater Cincinnati community. The 20 are part of Xavier University’s Summer Service Internship Program, now in its 18th year. Xavier’s program is unique in that it offers interns stipends and free housing in Xavier’s Brockman Residence Hall. With a mission to develop as men and women for others, the interns serve at area nonprofits and community agencies. The students make this service an integral part of their daily lives. West Side students participating are: Josephine A. Lando, originally of Nairobi, Kenya, a junior, international business and accounting major at Xavier, is working at Caracole. The daughter of Mrs. Rose Lando, she graduated from The Kenya High School. Chelsea Lipps a junior middle childhood education major at Xavier, is working at Boys and Girls Club. The daughter of Patty and Jerry Lipps, she graduated from Seton High School. Jessica Pachko, a senior
majoring in psychology and social work at Xavier, is working at Cincinnati Recreation Lipps Commission. The daughter of Kim and Mike Pachko, she graduated from Oak Hills High School. Pachko The interns spend nine weeks through July 27 working at agencies for 35 hours each week. “This Lando program challenges students to think critically about the social issues that they witness at their service sites. Eventually they develop a critical framework for thinking about systemic oppression,” says Laura Wallace, summer service student coordinator. “As a result, they often redefine justice for themselves, and intentionally engage with the Cincinnati community and their communities at home.” Students keep journals to reflect on their work and attend weekly dinner and community reflection sessions. The students spent time before work started
preparing themselves for their experience. They learned about diversity, service, safety, and sense of place and purpose. “While providing services to meet immediate needs, the student interns grapple with big questions about society, injustice, and what it means to be people for and with others. They are gaining valuable job and life skills they can carry into the future,” said Angela Gray-Girton, associate director of Xavier’s Dorothy Day Center for Faith and Justice. A survey of program participants found students value the chance to step outside their comfort zone. Others appreciate the opportunity to make a difference in the world and in the lives of others. “The Summer Service Internship Program is making a positive impact on the lives of our students and on the people in the agencies served by the program,” says Michael J. Graham, S.J., president of Xavier University. “We greatly appreciate the support of our funders and look forward to continuing this service to our community in the future.” Supporters include The Charles H. Dater Foundation, John & Francie Pepper, Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America Inc. and Xavier Women of Excellence Giving Circle.

West Side loses a special man By Tom Skeen
GREEN TWP. — The West Side lost a special individual June 22 when Oak Hills swim coach and Our Lady of Visitation physical education teacher Michael Nocheck died from pancreatic cancer. He was 56 years old. After being diagnosed right before the high school swim season in October 2011, the coach of 20-plus years still made an effort to come out for swim meets and made an occasional appearance at practice. “Coach Nocheck was a firstclass person,” Oak Hills athletic director Jan Wilking said. “(He was) always doing things the right way in his development of great swimmers and great student-athletes.” During his career as a Highlander, he coached more than 80 athletes to the state swim meet. He also coached for more than 15 years at Gamble Nippert YMCA, where he was Wilking’s swim coach when she was a child in the early 1980s. “He was a role-model to hundreds of Oak Hills swimmers and touched thousands of young lives through his commitment to the sport of swimming on the West Side,” Wilking said. Nocheck was named the boys and girls Greater Miami Conference Coach of the Year for 2012. He also took home the honor in 2009 on the boy’s side and in 2005 for the girls. On top of his duties at the high school, Nocheck was the manager at Oak Hills Swim and Racquet Club, where many referred to him as “Noodles” due to is form in the swimming pool. People came out in droves Wednesday, June 27, to pay

It’s was easy to see that swimming, right behind his family and mentoring kids, was a serious passion of his. “Mike Nocheck challenged everybody; physically and mentally,” former Oak Hills swimmer Aaron Cordell said. “He would make you question why it is you’re doing what you are do. It was as if he made you bring out the best in yourself without you knowing. He wanted to see kids give their best every day.” He is survived by his wife, Theresa, and their five children Elizabeth, Andrew, Molly, Rebecca and Patrick Nocheck, as well as his mother, Anita, and father, Leroy, along with many other members of the Nocheck family. “(Coach Nocheck’s) dedication over the past 20 years at Oak Hills has allowed our swimming program to year-inand-year-out compete at the state level,” Wilking said. “Coach Nocheck will be missed by the student-athletes, the coaches and the entire Oak Hills family.”

By Tom Skeen email@example.com
GREEN TWP — As the 97th Metropolitan Women’s Championship concluded June 24 at Maketewah Country Club, the youthinfused event brought out the best of Western Hills residents Shelby Wilson and Bailey Arnold. Wilson, a sophomore at Bowling Green , notched a semifinal birth, while Arnold, a Seton graduate and junior at Bowling Green, lost in the quarterfinals. Wilson opened against Rachel Steiner and found herself one down through 10 holes. Wilson shot three-under in the next five holes, including a birdie on 15 to close the match four-and-three to move on to the quarterfinals. After winning the first hole in the quarterfinals against Megan Tenhundfeld , Wilson dropped the next three, but bounced back on seven with a birdie. She squared the match on the par-three 12th, but dropped back to one-down after a bogey on 13. She would go on to win 14 and 15 to go one-up and win the par-three 18th with a par to close out the match two-up.
Seton graduate Bailey Arnold overcame an early deficit in her opening-round match to claim victory, but lost to the eventual champion in the quarterfinals at the 97th Cincinnati Metropolitan Women’s Championships. THANKS TO KAREN SCHOTTELKOTTE
In the semifinal, Wilson founder herself taking on Marybeth Reinhold. Wilson was never able to get the lead in the match, but stayed within striking distance and was all-square heading to the par-five 15th. With just three bogeys through the first 14 holes, Wilson bogeyed 15, 16 and 17 to lose the match three-and-one. As for Arnold, she got off to a
La Salle grad goes out on top By Nick Dudukovich firstname.lastname@example.org
There aren’t many better ways to wrap up a baseball career than how Elliott Ross pitched in his last outing for DePauw University Tigers. In the opening round of the NCAA Division III regional playoff in May, Ross threw a complete game, four-hit shutout while striking out nine batters and walking just three. It took the former La Salle High School standout136 pitches to defeat Emory University . At the end of the eighth inning, with Ross’ pitch count at 120, teammates began lobbying head coach Jake Martin to leave Ross in for the ninth. “It’s probably one of the best feelings I’ve ever had,” he said. “I didn’t realize how tired I was until it was over … I knew I left everything on the field .” DePauw lost its next two games, which eliminated the team from postseason play. The Emory game was Ross’ last appearance for the Tigers. But baseball is still with the recent graduate, who is working in the financial industry in Charlotte, N.C.
La Salle alumnus Elliott Ross pitched a complete game, four-hit shutout in his last collegiate start for DePauw University last May. THANKS TO BARRY ROSS
As a freshman in 2009, Ross made an immediate impact for the Tigers. He appeared in 15 games and posted a 4-2 record, along with 33 strikeouts and a 2.93 ERA in 27.2 innings pitched. Martin knew right away that Ross could help the Tigers in crucial situations. “He was going to throw strikes, compete and he wasn’t going to get flustered in big situations,” Martin said. But it was during his sophomore season that Ross was named Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Year after going 8-2 with a 2.64 ERA. Martin said the
coaching staff thought of Ross a reliever, but the 6-foot lefthander proved otherwise. “We knew he had started, but we didn’t know he was going to be as dominant as a starter as what he did his sophomore year,” Martin said. As a junior and a full-time starter, Ross caught some bad breaks. The baseball always seemed to find a spot on the ground to land, according to Martin. Ross ended up going 4-5 with and 4.86 ERA. The summer in between his junior and senior seasons, Ross honed his skills playing for the Richmond River Rats, a wooden-bat college league team. Rosters consist of players from all levels of college baseball and it’s not unusual to find teams that have players drafted by big-league clubs. Ross went 5-3 for the River Rats with a 4.36 ERA. The summer helped reaffirm his confidence going in as a senior. For his final season at DePauw, Ross went 8-1 with a 3.71 ERA. He garnered first-team all-North Coast Athletic Conference recognition, in addition to being named to the alltournament team.
shaky start in her opening-round match against Jamie Ellison, losing the first two holes. She pulled to one-up after eight following a par on the 380-yard par four. Once they made the turn to the back nine, Arnold kicked it into another gear and won holes 10-14 for a six-and-four victory. In the next round against eventual champion Erin Michel, Arnold found herself down two holes after five, but won the sixth with a birdie. Her momentum didn’t last as she lost the final three holes on the front nine and was down four holes heading to the back side. She cut the deficit to two following victories at 11 and 14, but dropped the 15th hole to fall behind by three again and squared the 16th for a three-andtwo loss. Wilson will play in the Ohio Women’s Amateur at Riviera Country Club in Dublin, Ohio, where she has a chance to qualify for the U.S. Women’s Amateur in Indianapolis, Ind., later this year. Arnold and Wilson will team up for the NCAA Women’s Collegiate Team Championships in late July, which will be in Dublin.

Is everything in your recycling bin recyclable? Everyday people are tossing things into recycling bins that actually belong in the trash. Although recycling efforts are always appreciated, it is important that we are all recycling the correct items. There are many items that seem like they would be recyclable, but actually are not. Often, people throw their lunch or snack containers into the recycling bin, but pudding cups, yogurt containers, potato chip bags, Ziploc bags, plastic carry-out containers and juice boxes/pouches are not currently recyclable in our area. If you want to be an efficient recycler remember to stick to basic plastic, glass, paper and metal items. Lids to plastic bottles are recyclable now, too!

Renewed focus on veterans’ mental health
U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki often reminds us: as the tide of war recedes we have the opportunity, and the responsibility, to anticipate the needs of returning veterans. As these newest veterans return home, we must ensure that they have access to quality mental health care in order to successfully make this transition to civilian life. Last year, VA provided specialty mental health services to more than 1.3 million veterans – a 35 percent increase since 2007 in the number of veterans who received mental health services at VA. That’s why it was recently announced that VA will add an additional 1,600 mental health staff professionals and an additional 300 support staff members nationwide. The Cincinnati Veterans Affairs Medical Center had already increased its staffing to meet the current demand for mental health services so we received two new positions to enhance our services. These efforts to hire more mental health professionals build on our record of service to veterans. President Obama, Secretary Shinseki and the CVAMC leadership have devoted more people, programs and resources to veteran mental health services. VA has increased the mental health care budget by 39 percent since 2009. What’s more, we’ve increased the number of mental health staff members by 41 percent since 2007. That means today, we have a team of professionals that’s 20,590 strong – all dedicated to providing muchneeded direct mental health treatment to veterans. While we have made great strides to expand mental health care access, we have much more work to do. The men and women who have had multiple deployments over a decade of combat have carried a tremendous burden for our country. That’s why Secretary Shinseki has challenged the department to improve upon our progress and identify barriers that prevent veter-

ans from receiving timely treatment. As we meet with veterans here in Cincinnati, we learn firsthand what we need to do to improve access
to care. Secretary Shinseki has sought out the hardest-toreach, most underserved places – from the remote areas of Alaska to inner city Philadelphia – to hear directly from Veterans and employees. We’re taking action to reach out to those who need mental health care instead of waiting for them to come to us. Our mission is to increase access to our care and services. We’ve greatly increased the number of Veterans Readjustment Counseling Centers (Vet Centers) throughout the country. We’ve also developed an extensive suicide prevention program that saves lives every day. For example, our team at the Veteran Crisis Line has fielded more than 600,000 calls from veterans in need and helped rescue more than 21,000 veterans who were in immediate crisis. That’s 21,000 veterans who have been saved. The mental health of America’s veterans not only touches those of us at VA and the Department of Defense, but also families, friends, co-workers and people in our communities. We ask that you urge veterans in your communities to reach out and connect with VA services. To locate the nearest VA facility or Vet Center for enrollment and to get scheduled for care, veterans can visit VA’s website at www.va.gov. Immediate help is available at www.veteranscrisisline.net/ or by calling the Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255 (push 1) or texting 838255. Linda Smith is Cincinnati Veterans Affairs medical director.

Thousands of West Siders gathered in the heart of Cheviot for the annual WestFest celebration Saturday, June 23 and Sunday, June 24. This year marked the 11th anniversary of the two-day festival, which is sponsored each year by the Cheviot Westwood Community Association. Proceeds the association receives from the event are put back into the community through a variety of programs,
scholarships and donations. Ray Kroner, president of the community association, said wall-to-wall people packed the festival on Saturday, and Sunday was shaping up to be a success as well due to nice, warm weather. A wide variety of food vendors and merchants lined Harrison Avenue, crowds enjoyed live music from three separate stages, a car show took place on Saturday and the Kidz Zone provided several games and rides throughout the weekend for families who brought their children.

Rita shares reader’s chicken salad clone It was just last week that a reader told me the recipe I shared recently for Don Deimling’s “delicious salad dressing” has not only become a family favorite, but one that Rita is requestHeikenfeld ed by RITA’S KITCHEN friends, as well. “It’s as good as School House restaurant’s,” she said. I know the restaurant can’t share their recipe, which to my palate has a bit more onion, but they’re pretty close. I’m sharing this story because Don, who was one of our best friends, passed away this week. I can just imagine him now making his salad dressing, along with his awesome goetta, for the angels in heaven. I think they’re both destined to become favorites up there, too. (The dressing recipe is still on my blog at Cincinnati.com).
Annie Hoffman’s clone of Silverglade’s chicken salad
3 tablespoons olive oil 2 cloves of garlic, minced (2 teaspoons or so) 1 large red, yellow or orange bell pepper, or 2 medium, chopped or cut into strips 1 jar favorite pasta sauce (I used Kroger marinara) Fresh parsley, chopped Parmesan cheese
For Judy S. I talked to the folks at Silverglade’s, who said their recipe is proprietary, just as they had told me a few years ago when other readers wanted it. Annie Hoffman, a loyal reader, reminded me that she had cloned this recipe way back when and shared it with us. So here’s Annie’s recipe again, which hopefully will work for Judy. ½ cup whipping cream, whipped 1 cup real mayonnaise 2½ cups cooked chicken breast 1 cup celery, finely chopped 1 cup small seedless green or purple grapes 1 cup toasted walnuts, chopped 1 teaspoon minced fresh onion 1 teaspoon salt
Combine ingredients as follows: whip the cream and add the mayo, then add all the rest and chill for at least three hours. You can add your own spices, or hard boiled egg
Grilled sausage rigatoni starts with store-bought pasta sauce. THANKS TO JUSTIN HAWTHORNE if you like – it is still as good!
Courtney Vonderhaar’s grilled sausage rigatoni If I get a taste of something really good, I just have to have the recipe. Here’s the story of this one. I was at son Jason’s house and Jess, his wife, was telling me about a spicy pasta dish her neighbor, Courtney, a Mount
Washington reader, brought over for them to sample. Luke, my 11 year old grandson, ate it so fast there was hardly a taste left. The dish starts with a store-bought pasta sauce, to which you add bell peppers, garlic and grilled Italian sausages. Jess fixed it when we came to dinner, and I was hooked. I made it on my Union Township cable show “Love Starts in the Kitchen.” Everyone came back
for seconds. This is a nice dish to tote to someone who may be under the weather. (They also raved about the butter pecan cake which I shared with you recently and which I’ve adapted somewhat. It’s on my blog). 1 pound or so Italian sausage links (I used 8 oz. each mild and hot), grilled and sliced into coins* 1 pound rigatoni pasta, cooked
While pasta is cooking, sauté garlic in oil for 30 seconds, add pepper, cook until tender, add sauce and sausage, heat until hot or sausage is hot or cooked through. Serve over rigatoni and sprinkle with parsley. Pass plenty of Parmesan. Serves 4-5. » I’ve made this with bulk Italian sausage and simply sautéed it. Still delicious. I’ve also just grilled the sausages part way and finished cooking them in the skillet. Takes a bit longer to cook. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

Consider hiring lawyer when building a house New home sales rose in May at the fastest pace in two years. Record low interest rates are driving more people into the housing market and prompting builders to start building again. But unless you’re careful, building a new house can be more costly than you ever imagined. Russ Loges learned that when looking for a house you need to get more than just a real estate agent. His experience in Liberty Township is one from which we can all learn. “We had hoped to move in within four months of the house building starting – so we had hoped to move in about a year ago,” Loges said. After signing the contract with a builder, Loges learned the first problem was ground could not be broken without a signifi-

cant amount of engineering work due to the configuration of the lot. Next, Loges Howard says he Ain learned HEY HOWARD! there were financial problems. “We were trying to save money and paint the house ourselves when I noticed a lot of subcontractors coming and going looking for payment … They came into the house looking for the builder,” Loges says. Eventually Loges was able to get money from the mortgage company to pay some of the contractors – and he had to pay others out of his own pocket. He now estimates the house has gone over bud-

get by about $45,000. “This is my first housing-building experience. Basically, everything that could go wrong has gone wrong,” Loges said. Loges says there was so little money left on the construction loan he had to spend his own money for, among other things, kitchen cabinets, appliances and plumbing fixtures. At one point he found a lien had been placed on the house by a lumber company so he ended up paying that out of his own pocket again. Loges says he’s learned a valuable lesson. “I didn’t put the proper legal protection in place … I would go beyond a real estate agent and go to a lawyer if I ever did another real estate transaction like this.” I contacted the builder who blames a lot of cost overruns on change-orders from Loges. He also says kitchen appliances were more expensive than budgeted. After I talked with him, the builder agreed to sign papers for the bank to release the remainder of the construction loan money to Loges so workers could be paid. There’s a lot to buying an existing house, let alone building one, and you need to have the expertise of a lawyer to guide and protect you.

Cady made La Salle history Joe Sunderman remembers running the halls at La Salle High School. It was after his junior season of playing basketball for the Lancers, and Sunderman wasn’t running wildly or unsupervised. He was running with a purpose as Bill Cady, his coach, timed him with a stopwatch. “He’d mark off what was probably a little more than half a court, have it measured off, and I would run and run. He was trying to make me faster,” Sunderman said. “Every day he was there. If you wanted to become better at anything, he’d spend the time to help you do it.” Bill Cady died of natural causes June 25 at the age of 83. Cady was the first lay teacher hired by the Christian Brothers, the Roman Catholic teaching congregation that founded La
Salle in 1960. He was the school’s first varsity basketball coach and amassed Cady 334 of his 441 lifetime wins at La Salle from 196288, including leading the Lancers to the state tournament in 1967, 1977 and 1979. Cady spent 48 years at La Salle as a teacher, coach, moderator, athletic director and director of Christian services. “Bill Cady was just a wonderful example of what La Salle is about because he was a selfless role model who showed great leadership for young men in their development,” said Sunderman, a 1974 La Salle graduate who is now the radio play-by-play broadcaster for Xavier University. “He lived life in a very meaningful way.”
Cady coached at Steubenville College, now known as Franciscan University of Steubenville, and McNicholas High School before being hired at La Salle. He was a 1947 graduate of St. Xavier before going on to Xavier University. Cady spent time in the Marine Corps at Paris Island, according to La Salle Director of Community Development Greg Tankersley. The basketball court at La Salle is named after Cady. He is a member of the Buddy LaRosa High School Sports Hall of Fame, the St. Xavier Hall of Fame and the La Salle Hall of Fame. He was also honored in 1991 by the Sorrento’s Hamilton County Sports Hall of Fame. After retiring from the coaching portion of his life in 1988, Cady was able to focus more of his daily efforts on community outreach and mission work, in-

Missing teeth? Mini Dental Implants; a lower cost option Do you have a missing tooth or teeth? After your dentist told you to replace the tooth/teeth with either an uncomfortable partial, a bridge that would grind down your healthy teeth or an expensive traditional implant were you left feeling frustrated? A newer excellent alternative is the Mini Dental Implant, or MDI. The procedure, which is offered by Dr. Christopher Omeltschenko, can be used to replace a single missing tooth or an entire row of teeth. “The advantages of a single MDI over traditional options are numerous,” says Dr. Omeltschenko. “At 1.8 millimeters in diameter they can be placed without surgically opening the gums, so recovery is quick and most patients don’t even need pain medicine.” He adds, “MDIs are not connected to adjacent teeth so common problems, such as difficulty cleaning between teeth and food entrapments are eliminated. And at about the same price as a partial and about half the price of a bridge or traditional implant, they are extremely affordable as well.” MDIs are functional on the same day they are put in, enabling patients who have a MDI placed in the morning to enjoy eating lunch without difficulty in the afternoon. Christopher Omeltschenko, D.D.S. Call (513) 245-2200 today for your free, 6560 Colerain Avenue no-obligation consultation (a $150 value).

As we approach the Fourth of July it is well to be reminded that the nationhood we celebrate did not spring full blown with the mere declaration of independence from tyranny of the day. The prize of freedom came only by reason of ﬁrm actions taken by many individuals acting singly and collectively over an extended period before and after the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. This is the tradition of resolute purpose on which the United States of America was founded and has been maintained. “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”- John F.

This award identifies outstanding educators who play a pivotal role in helping to encourage young women to continue exploring their interest in computing and technology. Twyford has been working hard to incorporate new content into the technology curriculum, including cloud computing, database design and management, as well as units in computer programming in both Basic and Java Languages. Next year’s courses will include content in mobile apps developments and programmable autonomous robotics. “It is an incredible honor to receive such an award,” said Twyford, “and I am delighted to pass on the energy and enthusiasm of NCWIT and its members to all of the young women of technology students. I look forward to the opportunities that lay ahead for all women in technology.”
