North Bend works starts this month Road will be widen between Boomer and Kleeman roads By Kurt Backscheider

Green Township residents will soon see construction crews descend upon North Bend Road. Adam Goetzman, Green Township’s assistant administrator and director of planning/development, said the project to widen North Bend Road, from Boomer Road to Kleeman Road, will begin in mid-month. The $3.2 million widening project is being completed in advance of the opening of the new

Mercy HealthWest Hospital, slated to open in October 2013. Goetzman said, when finished, North Bend Road will have two northbound Goetzman lanes and two southbound lanes from Boomer Road to Kleeman, as well as turn lanes into the entrance to the new hospital. Traffic signals will also be installed at North Bend Road’s intersection with the hospital entrance. The access drive to the hospital will be named Mercy Health Boulevard. “This project is the township’s No. 1 priority,” he said. Widening the road will im-

prove safety, as it will decrease backups and allow traffic to move through the area more smoothly. Goetzman said upgrades at both the North Bend/Boomer intersection and the North Bend/ Kleeman intersection will be included in the project. Traffic signals will be added at the North Bend/Kleeman intersection as well. Depending on the weather, he said the widening from Boomer to the hospital entrance will be finished this year. The project’s second phase, which encompasses the section of North Bend that extends south from the hospital entrance to Kleeman, is scheduled to be finished in 2013. “We’ll work from north to

south,” he said. Shortly after the widening work begins, Goetzman said the Ohio Department of Transportation will begin its project to improve the intersection of West Fork Road and North Bend Road, and reconfigure the ramps to eastbound Interstate 74. Sharon Smigielski, spokeswoman for ODOT, said state project addresses three separate issues, and all the work is scheduled to be completed by the end of this construction season. “It’s a one-season project,” she said. The North Bend/West Fork project involves the construction of right-turn only lanes at all four legs of the intersection, she said. Work at the North Bend and

I-74 interchange will focus on the highway ramps. Smigielski said a separate lane will be added from northbound North Bend Road to the eastbound entry ramp to I-74, allowing traffic to access the highway ramp without having to wait at the traffic light in front of St. Ignatius. On the southbound side of the North Bend overpass, she said the roadway will be widened, eliminating the exit-only lane to eastbound I-74. The widening will create two lanes of through traffic on the southbound side of the overpass, and still provide an exit to the eastbound I-74 entrance ramp.

Even 100 degree weather couldn’t keep people away from the Lettuce Eat Well Farmers Market at Harvest Home Park. Market patrons can purchase a variety of items from baked goods to vegetables, olive oil to coffee and even grilled food. The market is open year round from 3 to 7 p.m. on Fridays. Market coordinators pride themselves in the standards they uphold for vendors. “This market set the gold standard. All the produce sold in this market is grown using no synthetic chemicals,” said organizer Mary Hutten of Green Township.

Hutten said it is a requirement that produce vendors are “green.” “We make regular farm visits,” Hutten said. She even suggested to nonproduce vendors to buy their ingredients or supplies from local businesses. “We want everyone to learn to live more local,” she said. Produce vendor Nancy Romans, 51, of Vevay, Ind., said she enjoys sharing her fruits and vegetables with market customers. “I’m selling directly to the person that’s going to eat my product that I grew. For them, they’re buying from us, the farmers that raised their food. They can put a face on who grew it and how they grew it and if they have any quesSee MARKET, Page A2 Vol. 84 No. 34 © 2012 The Community Press ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Just steps away from the marker is one of two memorial gardens created by Jan Roos in memory of her son who died at the age of 21 in Ramadi, Iraq. She said it also recognizes all the fallen heroes of wars past. At 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 21, Roos will host a memorial walk in the cemetery to commemorate her son.

Meanwhile, Bonnie Eldridge and her son Nick are working to whip their new restaurant into shape. Nick said he and his mom are waiting for a few items in the kitchen – a hood and grill – before the restaurant can unveil its regular menu. Till then, a temporary menu built on sandwiches and salads is being served. “We are going to focus on having the food be fresh wherever possible,” he said. “We’ll have a dinner menu and specials, burgers, it will be a variety. We are still figuring everything out.” He says it will likely take three weeks before all the kitchen issues are settled and the regular menu is in place.

McAuley High School

Incoming freshmen and returning student athletes have an opportunity this summer to prevent injuries during the upcoming soccer, volleyball and basketball seasons. For several weeks this summer, the young women are coming to campus to participate in Sportsmetrics, arranged by McAuley trainer Rachael Holt and conducted by Cincinnati SportsMedicine. The focus of the Sportsmetrics program is injury prevention, with some acceleration training as well. Each Sportsmetrics experience is specifically tailored to the athletes’ sports. For example, for ball drills, soccer balls are used for soccer players, but volleyballs are used for volleyball players.

St. Ignatius Loyola School

Sophomores, juniors and seniors at McAuley High School recently enjoyed a visit from Mary Pat Findley, a registered dietician at Children's Hospital. Findley talked about her job, what good nutrition means, especially for adolescent girls, and showed the students how to make two nutritious dishes: Texas caviar and tomato caprese salad. Students helped prepare the food, even picking basil from the classroom pots. Findley, whose daughter Mary Kate and Susan are 2011 McAuley graduates, also teaches at the University of Cincinnati. Pictured helping her prepare Texas caviar are seniors Bria Wyatt, left and Julie McKendry. PROVIDED.

“Good Health is No Accident” was the theme of St. Ignatius’ fifth annual Health and Safety Fair. The two-day event featured health and safety activities, speakers, and presentations for the students. This year, topics included taking care of

your hearing, first aid, and water and fire safety. Activities include Zumba, martial arts, nutrition, portion control, water safety, herb gardening and cyber bullying. As part of the nutrition education, funded by Evendale Medical Center, children learned how to make their own healthy snacks. Also on site were representatives from the D.A.R.E. drug prevention program and American Red Cross, and programs sponsored by local hospitals. St. Ignatius alumnus Keith Peace, a firefighter with the Miami Township Fire Department, guided students through a trailer filled with theatrical fog, simulating a smoke-filled room while teaching survival skills. The health fair was held during the last week of school. “We know it is hard for students to learn the last few days of school, so we in inundate them with high-quality, high-impact lessons and a wide range of health and safety objectives” said Tim Reilly, principal. “This is how we ensure our quality learning continues to the very end.”

Brown goes through the ranks OH junior finds success at racing By Tom Skeen

Triple-A Charlotte Knights pitcher Charlie Leesman tosses a pitch against the Durham Bulls April 18. The former Elder Panther is 7-6 with a 2.45 ERA, 69 strikeouts and 35 walks in 88.1 innings for the Triple-A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox, and was recently named to the Independent League All-Star team. THANKS TO RON DESHAIES/CHARLOTTE KNIGHTS

Former Panther fights his way to the majors Elder grad made AAA All-Star team By Tom Skeen

PRICE HILL — Elder High School graduate Charlie Leesman is on his way to the major leagues. Now it’s just a matter of time as to when he will be called up from Triple-A Charlotte to the Chicago White Sox. Leesman, 25, was just named to the Independent League All-Star team, which will be played July 11 in Buffalo, NY. It’s the second year in-arow that Leesman has earned the honor after making the Southern League All-Star Game as a part of the Double-A Birmingham Barons in 2011. The Xavier University grad was originally drafted in 2005 by the Minnesota Twins, but chose not to sign and was instead picked by the White Sox in the 11th round of the 2008 First-Year Player Draft. Going into the season he was ranked as the 16th-best pros-

pect in the White Sox organization by and was ranked 14th by after the 2011 season. That same season his changeup was voted the best in the organization. In his first season with the Knights, Leesman is 7-6 with a 2.45 ERA. The left-handed starter has struck out 69 batters in 88.1 innings, while walking just 35 and allowing only four home runs. He was especially good in May when he went 3-1 with a 1.47 ERA. One of his best outings of the year came May 16 when he went six and two-thirds innings, struck out seven and didn’t allow a run to pick up his first win as a member of the Knights. Since that start, Leesman has allowed more than two earned runs in a start just once. Walks were quite a struggle for the him early in his MLB career. In 2009, with Low Class A Kannapolis, Leesman aver-

aged a solid 3.3 walks per nine innings. Things took a turn for the worse in ’10 when he walked 44 and struck out 39 in 84.2 innings for High Class A Winston-Salem. Something clicked for Leesman when he was called up to Birmingham mid-way through the 2010 season. In 63.2 innings he walked just 20 while striking out 51 and posting a 2.69 ERA. In 2011, Leesman spent the entire season with the Barons and started 27 games, posting a 10-7 record with a 4.03 ERA. He walked 85 in slightly more than 150 innings, but struck out 113 and allowed just four home runs. He was added to the Sox’s 40-man roster last November, preventing any major league team from taking him in the Rule 5 Draft, which shows that the organization thinks highly of him and his future with the team.

GREEN TWP. — When most kids are 6 years old, they are riding around in a Big Wheel or playing T-ball. That wasn’t the case for Oak Hills High School junior Shawn Brown, who began racing gokarts when he was 6. “My parents figured the gokart was safer (than a dirt bike),” Brown said. “We just decided to race competitively. We bought it from my dad’s buddy who was racing, so we just started racing with him for a while.” When he was 8, the Browns put a Phantom Chassis – one of the top chassis around - on the kart and started to travel around for races. Things really started to change when he went on to win 20 of 22 his races at Lawrenceburg Speedway when he was 10. “Things cost more, but we were winning more money, too,” he said. “The equipment enabled us to run better and with bigger, better guys.” The 16 year old, who got his driver’s license a few weeks ago, currently is racing an Open Wheel Dirt Modified car at Florence Speedway, which according to Brown is the middle class of dirt racing. This is his first year in the open wheel car after racing Pure Stock last year. “(This year) is going a whole lot better than anybody expected,” he said. “Especially with how different (the cars) are to drive. We are running right there with the top guys.” Brown made the jump this season after racking up back-toback wins in the Pure Stock car at Florence, but is still looking for his first win this season with his best result being a fourth-place finish. Brown’s ultimate goal wouldn’t necessarily be to make it to NASCAR.

“I kind of like dirt,” he said. “It’s more active, more challenging in the way you have to drive. I guess my goal is to be one of the top Late Model drivers.” Late Model is the top dirt class around and Brown knows it won’t be easy to get to the top level. “It’s really a whole lot more money and you have to have people behind you,” he said. “A sponsorship is really the biggest thing. If you can make a good impression on the track, you might get somebody to offer their ride to you in Late Models.” As he sits in the middle of his 10th year on the track, the youngster knows he couldn’t have achieved all his success on his own. “I really couldn’t have done it without my family,” he said. “They are always there. Mom puts up with all the stuff that goes with it; the constant work, endless hours in the garage working. Preparation is the key part of it.” Most who are in a sport at such a young age and are still excelling in it 10 years later, there has to be a love for it. “Every lap it is something different,” Brown said about why he loves the sport. “The adrenaline, speed, close quarters racing sideby-side; there is no other feeling.”

which promise to be the best ever. Of course, we couldn’t have the fireworks without sponsors such as Remke/Biggs, Coldwell Banker/West Shell, Eagle Savings, Riverside/Delhi Kiwanis, Delhi LaRosa’s and Duebber’s Automotive and Carry-out who have sponsored the Skirt Game for years. A

Good works can’t overcome other actions It is not surprising that those rushing to the defense of renegade Roman Catholic nuns would offer praise for all their “good works” over the years as a response to Vatican suggestions some have strayed from church teaching. The point seems to be that if you or your order has a history of unselfish service and caring for the sick, the poor and the needy among us, your other actions are above reproach and can not be questioned – especially by male church leaders. I have heard it all before. “Community service” and “good works” was the stock answer by the Sisters of Charity in Delhi Township to criticism for their cutting a private deal and selling out the community to the Northern Kentucky airport over 20 years ago. That was the “good sisters” reply to questions why they undercut the township against an out-of-state threat to our quality of life. Delhi has provided service and support to their tax-free college and facilities for over 100 years but that was not enough for them to consider their neigh-

bors in making their deal. Now the Holy Father has correctly noted that some religious orders and Dusty Rhodes some nuns have strayed COMMUNITY PRESS GUEST from church COLUMNIST teaching, in some cases promoting acts the church teaches are intrinsically evil. In response the nuns and their misguided supporters cite their “good works” and add criticism of those “mean old men” in the Vatican for good measure. If some nuns no longer want to follow church rules they should not pretend to be Catholic. Perhaps they should start their own religion, one in which doing “good works” permits you to do whatever else you want including selling out your neighbors for your own advantage when you have that opportunity. Seems some already have. Dusty Rhodes lives in Delhi Township. He is the Hamilton County auditor.


Many thanks from Skirt Game While other communities are trying to find funding for their summer fireworks, Delhi Township is lucky. Thanks to the many businesses and individuals in this community the 35th annual Delhi Skirt Game is going to happen on Friday, Aug. 3, in the Delhi Township Park from 5 until 11 pm. Thanks to WKRC, Bob Herzog will be the emcee. Judge Pat Dinkelacker will be there to assist. There will be characters (dressed in skirts) representing Disney and Warner Brothers. And there will be the usual food, beverages and all sorts of fun things to do as always. But getting back to the sponsors, we want to thank, David Klawitter and Queen City Pyro Production for the fireworks


new sponsor we have added is Walt Sweeney Ford. Please support these sponsors, because without these major sponsors we would not be able to have this privately sponsored event. These sponsors and the many other donations that we receive, along with everyone who comes out every year to see the game and buy a brat and a beer, help to make this a huge success. The community, through the Delhi Skirt Game, continues to help those in need in Delhi and the need is greater than ever.

Clean water vital to good health Have you ever thought about how many times you interact with water on a daily basis? Go ahead, count the number of times. I bet the number you came up with is higher than you expected. That‘s true for most people. Water is such an intricate part of our daily lives and we don’t realize how valuable and important it is to our health and our community. For me, water is life. I drink it, cook with it, bathe in it, use it to wash my clothes and my dishes, I wash my hands with it, not to mention outside uses like washing my car and watering my lawn. At Greater Cincinnati Water Works, our mission is to provide customers within our regional communities a plentiful supply of the highest quality water and excellent services.

While the Catholic Church in America battles President Obama over First Amendment rights, the church in Britain is fighting against the “Liverpool Care Pathway” or LCP. This is the controversial euthanasia policy that kills 130,000 elderly Britain’s annually. Hearing this on Catholic radio (740AM), I decided to research. I came across Patrick Pullicino, a professor of clinical neurosciences at the University of Kent. He was speaking to the Royal Society of Medicine in London. He said that 29 percent of hospital deaths in Britain are due to LCP and that the deciding factor is often the shortage of beds. Citing an example, he said a 71-yearold was admitted to the hospital suffering from pneumonia and put on LCP by a doctor on a weekend shift. Returning to work after the weekend, Pullicino found the patient unresponsive and his family upset because they had not agreed to LCP. Pullicino removed the patient despite resistance. The patient was discharged four weeks later. Is euthanasia coming to America? You decide. Obama appointed Donald Berwick as head of Medicare. Berwick is an advocate of rationing health care for the elderly and of Britain’s euthanasia policy. As customary, Obama bypassed Congress on Berwick’s appointment. Al Ostendorf Cheviot

Ballot only way to change health care law The Supreme Court’s landmark decision upholding President Obama’s health care law was a devastating disappointment to many, and will further smother job creation in this country. The court effectively pulled the veil off the administration’s health care myth, by revealing that the individual mandate is, in fact, a crippling new tax. And this is despite President Obama’s many protestations to the contrary. Moreover, it is the largest tax increase in U.S. history. All Americans should have access to quality, affordable health care. We can all agree with that. It is the path to achieving that worthy goal that is the issue. Some things in Barack Oba-

ma’s health care plan are worth keeping. Allowing young adults up to the age of 26 to remain on their parents’ plan, Robert Clippard and reforming rules on COMMUNITY PRESS GUEST COLUMNIST pre-existing conditions are examples. But other common-sense proposals were left out altogether and should be seriously considered. For example, allowing insurance companies to compete across state lines would increase competition and drive down health care costs. Implementing medical malpractice reform to

reduce frivolous lawsuits would scale back the costs of “defensive medicine.” And allowing Americans to fully Steve deduct their Chabot health care COMMUNITY PRESS costs are but a GUEST COLUMNIST few items which should have been included in the health care legislation. Perhaps the most unfortunate part of allowing Obamacare to move forward is that many working Americans risk losing their employer-based health insurance, as costs to employers will skyrocket. Small businesses approach-

ing 50 employees will have no incentive to hire, as they would be hit with expensive new requirements as soon as the 51st person comes on board. And even if businesses are prepared to hire, the cost of the health care law reduces their ability to afford new employees. Still other businesses may find it is less costly to just terminate health care coverage altogether and pay the penalty, forcing employees to enroll in government-run health care exchanges. Consider, for example, Clippard Instrument Laboratory Inc., a family-run business with over 200 employees, in Colerain Township which provides its employees health insurance through a self-funded, high deductible insurance plan cou-

pled with health savings accounts. Clippard’s employees like their coverage, and would prefer to keep it. After the court’s decision, Obamacare will dismantle health savings accounts and force significant, expensive changes to Clippard’s plan. This is likely to adversely affect Clippard’s employees. And that’s a shame. Despite a majority of Americans opposing his plan, Barack Obama forced it through Congress with no regard for the consequences. Steve Chabot represents the 1st District.

Jam, poached peaches good summer recipes I’ve always said I’ll take hot weather over cold, but this week may make me change my mind. It’s 103 degrees outside. I’m making sun-cooked strawberry preserves and strawberry rollups, which Rita usually Heikenfeld take up to RITA’S KITCHEN four days to “cook” in the sun. I’m thinking two days will do it. I’ll share those recipes soon. Meanwhile, stay hydrated. Make sure kids and older folks drink plenty of water. Kids’ bodies take longer to adjust to heat and humidity. They produce more body heat and don’t sweat as much as adults do at the same exertion level. So in hot weather, kids are at increased risk for dehydration. For information on this important topic and the best foods for athletes, check out friend and colleague Dawn Weatherwax’s website on sports


Sugar-free berry jam

I like strawberries but use your favorite berry and coordinating gelatin. Last time I made this I added lemon juice and it gave it a nice zing.

2 cups berries 1 cup cold water 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice 3 oz. sugar-free berry gelatin

Crush berries in saucepan. Add water, juice and gelatin and mix. Over medium heat, bring to boiling, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and simmer a couple of minutes. Pour into jars, cool and cap. Store in refrigerator for two weeks or frozen two months.

Greyhound Tavern’s house dressing ingredients Susan B. really wanted this recipe, and I know the recipe is proprietary, as it is hugely popular for this northern Kentucky restaurant. Greyhound is celebrating 25 years of good food and fellowship. So no, I don’t have the recipe, but

Rita shares a reader's recipe for using all those summer peaches. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD. here’s the ingredients (and I can’t tell you how I came to know), so let’s see if one of our readers can figure this out: seedless cucumbers, green onions, mayo, sour cream, sugar, white pepper, garlic, salt and chopped carrot.

Pat’s bourbon poached peaches

I’ve had this in my files for a long time and, with local peaches coming in, it’s a good one to share. From Pat Kellison, who said: “I have made a lot of peach recipes, but none

comes near this one for over-the-top deliciousness.” Pat serves it over peach ice cream. 4 lbs. peaches 2½ cups sugar 1 vanilla bean, split 4 cups water ¾ cup bourbon

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile, prepare an ice water bath. Cut a small X into bottom of each peach. Boil peaches for 1 minute. Transfer to ice water bath. Let cool slightly. Peel, pit and cut into ¾-inch wedg-

es. Bring water, sugar and vanilla to boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Add peaches and bourbon. Simmer until peaches are tender, but still hold their shape, 5-7 minutes. Transfer to large bowl using slotted spoon. Cook syrup over medium heat until reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Discard vanilla pod. Pour syrup over peaches. Let cool completely. Divide among sterilized jars. Pour syrup over tops. Seal jars and refrigerate until ready to use, up to one month. Extra syrup can be frozen.

Simple roasted carrots

Our farmer friends Bob and Bert Villing, who live down the road, just canned over 20 pints of carrots from their garden. As for me, I grow just enough for the kids to enjoy pulling up. That translates into carrots for several dinners, but not near enough to preserve. Here’s an easy way to roast carrots in the oven, not the prettiest kid on the block, but so delicious. Carrots are chock full of beta-carotene, which con-

verts to vitamin A in the body and is good for our eyes. Carrots may help lower cholesterol, prevent heart attacks and certain cancers. Now in order to make the beta-carotene do all these good things, carrots need a little fat. So I rub them with olive oil before roasting. Carrots, peeled only if necessary Olive oil Sea salt Freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Rub with olive oil and season to taste. Lay in single layer on sprayed cookie sheet. Roast until tender and slightly wrinkled. Trim leafy tops. When you buy carrots with green tops attached, trim them off before storing. Otherwise, those leafy tops act like sponges, sucking out the vitamins and moisture.
