School has a new employee. The school district purchased Atticus, a black Dutch Shepherd dog, who will help patrol the halls and parking lot of high school five days a week. The 8-month-old puppy can sniff out drugs and firearms and is trained to bite an attacker. “We came up with the idea after the Sandy Hook shootings,” said Mark Gomer, owner and trainer at American Success Dog Training. “I approached the school district and they loved the idea.” Gomer said he has a vested interest in the school district as three of his children go to school there. “This, to my knowledge, this is the first time this has ever been done,” he said. “This could change the way that schools protect their kids and keep every body safe from here on out.” The district will pay $10,000 for the dog from the permanent improvement fund which pays for items such as security. The district will pay $5,000 in fiscal year 2014 which started July 1 and another $5,000 will be paid in fiscal year 2015. The money includes payment for Atticus, his training so far and continuous training over the next two years. The guard dog learned short commands in German. “The commands are commands that people wouldn’t normally know and they’re sharper,” he said. “We’re able to condition these bites and have a dog that can take out a bad guy and protect the school without making that dog vicious or unstable at all.”


Cheviot — The Harvest Home Fair has boasted some local artists as judges of the fair’s art show for the last several years. This year, art show participants will showcase their work for Cincinnati Art Christopherson Museum Executive Director Aaron Betsky. Art show co-chair Andy Patton said the Cincinnati Art Museum has been a part of the Harvest Home parade and now he and co-chair Sharon Christopherson are excited that Betsky will be a part of the art show. “We try to have at least 100

Three prizes are awarded in each of the categories of oil and acrylic, watercolor and multimedia. “There are always so many good works and we can’t give them all prizes,” Christopherson said. She said that outside of the top prizes, many of the entries are awarded honorable mentions. “The entries just keep getting better and better.” Patton said there is not a theme to the art show and artists can take creative license to their works. Each year entries range from portraits to landscapes to collages and other works of art. The art show is hosted by the Cheviot Westwood Kiwanis Club.

Summer camp shows a heart for ministries La Salle is home base for two weeks of Catholic Heart Work Camps By Jennie Key

Green Twp. — Catholic Heart Work Camps give teens an opportunity to use their actions to serve God by serving their neighbors, even when their neighbors are hundreds of miles away. All summer long, buses and van loads of teens have crisscrossed the country to participate in these work camps and

experience for themselves the joy of Christian service. La Salle High School played a part this year, as the school threw open its campus for two work camps, providing a place to sleep, shower, eat and worship for close to 500 teens from Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin, Texas, Indiana, Tennessee and Pennsylvania who performed hours of service to local ministries. Catholic Heart Work Camps offers community service with Catholic faith and values. The ministry started in 1993 to share the love of Christ as teens serve the neglected, brokenhearted and the marginalized in any way needed. The program also hopes to inspire participants to live as disciples of

Christ through serving others as a way of life and to foster the Catholic faith of each participant through the sacraments, prayer and involvement in social service. The work camps were established to offer quality service projects and evangelical programs for Catholic young people and their leaders. Each work camp is equipped with staff members, adult associate staff members, a nurse, priest, and camp manager from the national ministry and local site managers.

went on a mission trip to New Orleans with the Youth Connection at St. Bartholomew Church, and found they loved that kind of service and ministry. But it was after a father-son experience for Ed and Alex with Catholic Heart Work Camps that the couple decided to look into bringing the camp to Cincinnati. “They raved about it,” Karen said. “It really has everything. It was lifechanging. It has the reconciliation, daily Mass, the whole program together is just beautiful.” They approached principal Tom Luebbe to talk about whether La Salle

were glad to house them here.” The camp welcomes students from a number of youth groups and then shuffles them up, so teens are in work groups with students from other groups. They meet alot of people and get to know them as they work side by side. Teens worked at a number of local ministries and agencies including Burlington House, Habitat for Humanity, Matthew 25 Ministries, Krohn Conservatory, Michaela Farm, Our Lady of the Woods, People Working Cooperatively, St. Vincent De Paul, Stepping Stones and did repair work for families in Moscow, Ohio, still repairing damage from the 2012 tornado. The teens at the camp described their week as “life changing.” Samantha McHenry, 17, of Houston, Texas, said she was surprised by how the week affected her.

“I just expected to work alot outside and get to know some new people,” she said. “I did meet some amazing people, but I also feel like I grew in my faith and thinking

about showing God in everything I do.” Jordan Sonnett, a 23year-old youth leader from western Pennsylvania, said small group time was very effective for his teens. “We were talking about ways to live their faith more fully in the future. I don’t think this was just a feel-good experience, but it’s going to have an effect on their lives in the future.” Connections were made. One group of teens who worked at Burlington House stopped on their way out of town to say goodbye to the residents they met while working there. “TeenLife Media, an information resource company for educators and parents, says teens who volunteer gain benefits ranging from increased self-esteem to acquiring valuable job skills.

escort any student that needs to go to the office or other locations during classtime. He will also make occasional trips to the middle schools in the district. Superintendent Todd Yohey said Atticus’ main goal is to keep students safe. “The great asset of having Atticus in the

building every day is for him to serve as a deterrent,” he said. “Students and adults will think twice about what they transport into the building.” Atticus’ first day of work is Aug. 21 when the students return for classes. Yohey said, “We consider him a staff member.”

The art show is open to all artists 17 years and older. Each artist can submit up to two entries. Entries are $10 each. All entries are due at the art show booth at Harvest Home Park on North

Bend Road by Thursday morning Sept. 5. The winners will be announced on Friday, Sept. 6, and the artwork will be on display throughout the Harvest Home Fair which ends Sunday, Sept. 8.

Colerain Township residents Karen and Ed Burtz were site managers at La Salle High School for Catholic Heart Work Camps this summer. La Salle hosted youth groups from across the east coast and the midwest for two different weeks of service to area ministries and agencies. JENNIE KEY/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Three want to be Rising Star By Monica Boylson

Delhi Twp. — Mikayla Hinton said she’s to be the Rising Star. “I used to make videos of myself singing when I was 5,” she said. “I used to sing Disney songs.” The13-year-old said she is hoping to use experience, voice lessons and love of music to help her win the Delhi Rising Star singing competition. She is one of three finalists who will compete at the Delhi Skirt Game Tailgate Party from 6 to 10 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 1, at Remke Biggs on Delhi Pike. Also vying for the title of Delhi Rising Star is Ft. Thomas, Ky., resident and Bayley employee Angela Williams-Woodard and Delhi resident Greg Moore. The winner of the finals will have the opportunity to perform three songs before the fireworks at the Delhi Skirt Game Friday, Aug. 2. For Hinton this is her first competition but both Moore and Williams-Woodard are competing for the second time. “Last year there were a lot of people and a lot of competition,” Moore said. “This year I was more prepared and brought lots of friends and family to support me.” The 23-year-old said he joined the competition as a way to give back to the Delhi Skirt Game and Delhi Civic Association, saying that two of his relatives and a close friend were helped by the skirt

game committee. To vote people have to purchase tickets and the proceeds from the ticket sales benefit both organizations. Moore said he had great memories of singing. “I remember listening to records with my grandma and dancing around the house to ‘Celebration,’” he said. “My best memory was in fifth grade playing the scarecrow in the ‘Wizard of Oz’ at C. O. Harrison.” Williams-Woodard, 28, said she’s been singing all her life and comes from a musical family. She joked that her parents said she could use a tape player before she could talk. “My entire family sings and my Dad’s a pastor,” she said. “I’ve always sung in choir and on praise team at church.” As the activity coordinator at Bayley, she said she sings to the residents every day. “I’ve always been passionate about singing,” she said. The trio said they’re still working on their song choices for the finals and Hinton said she knows what it will take to win. “The key to winning is showing good emotion and sound,” she said. She said she’s looking forward to the final round. “I’m nervous but I’m excited,” Hinton said. No matter what happens, Moore said he’ll be happy to compete. “Music is a great way for me to express myself and entertain people,” he said. “I’ll be rooting for the

other two contestants.” Choose your favorite singer at the tailgate party. Each performer will sing two songs. Tickets which count as votes are $1 each or 6 for $5. For more information visit www.delhi and to learn more about the tailgate party visit

ly one decade in the making, as Stoops collected sperm in 2004 from a male rhino, Himal, who at the time was living in Zanesville, Ohio. The sperm was stored for eight years at minus 320 degrees Fahrenheit at the Cincinnati Zoo’s Conservation & Research of Endangered Wildlife (CREW) CryoBioBank. It was then taken to Alabama, thawed and used in the AI procedure on Jeta, a 12-year-old on breeding loan from the San Diego Wild Animal Park. The first two procedures with Jeta were unsuccessful, but the third time was a charm, as the mother gave birth to Ethan in June. Stoops prefers animals to mate naturally, but certain species, including the Indian rhino, make it difficult – in part because the males and females don’t always, well, get along. “With African rhinos, the female tends to be in charge; you’ll see the male standing off to the side and the female will tell him when he can come over – and he listens,” the West Price Hill resident explained. “But the (Indian) rhino tends to be maledominated. (Indian) rhinos also have canine teeth so they have very sharp incisors and they actually use them during aggressive interaction.” In other words, when it comes to the Indian rhino, AI tends to be the safest option for all parties involved. Himal and Jeta, in fact, attempted to breed naturally but displayed too much aggression to-

As of now, Himal, Jeta and Ethan all reside at Montgomery Zoo – one big, happy, pseudo-aggressive family. “Of course we want to have baby rhinos (in Cincinnati),” said Stoops, who also does reproductive work on animals ranging from polar bears to aquatic salamanders. “But it’s just as satisfying to know that other zoos and other people and other keepers are able to enjoy a baby rhino somewhere.”

ward one another. “(Artificial insemination) can be a little challenging for the research team,” she said, “but it’s what’s best for the animals.” AI also allows researchers to improve genetic diversity of the species, as there are only 60 Indian rhinos in captivity in North America and merely 2,500 remaining in the wild. As for Ethan, he was named in honor of Ethan Gilman, the 6-year-old Alabama boy who was taken hostage in February. Gilman reportedly visited the Montgomery Zoo a few days after his release and bonded with

Faith, family equals !!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!! !!! 65 years of marriage !!!!!!!! 2 !!!!!

By Amanda Hopkins

Green Twp. — If it is possible to sum up Pam and Salvador Tedesco’s 65 years of marriage with two words it would be faith and family. “God always plans a marriage,” said Salvador, known as Salvey to friends and family. “Without Him we wouldn’t be where we are.” The Bridgetown couple met when Pam was 16 years old. Salvey said he remembered seeing Pam and asked his brother-inlaw, who was friends with Pam’s dad, to set him up. The two met after Mass at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral downtown one Sunday. “I got all dolled up that Sunday,” Salvey said. “I made up my mind that day that I was going to marry her.” The couple began dating when Pam turned 17 and they married the following year, on It's June 24, 1948, on Salvey’s birthday, when Pam was 18 and Salvey 22. “She’s the best gift I ever got,” he said. “After 65 years, I’m still unwrapping her.” Pam said their wedding day was a hot one, especially wearing a long gown with long sleeves which was modeled after the gown Princess Elizabeth, now queen of England, had worn in her wedding. Since that June day in 1948, the couple hasn’t

spent much time apart. Over 65 years, the Tedescos have raised seven children – Diane Chapman, who lives in England; Michael Tedesco of Delhi Township; Cheri Riestenberg of North Bend; Tammy Lang of California; Gary Tedesco, Salvey Tedesco and Pam Murray all of Delhi – spending 35 years in a five-bedroom house in Delhi. Pam and Salvey also ran a produce business together at Findlay Market for 40 years. Mr. Salvey’s Fruit Market sold a wide variety of produce and flowers, a business that was then bought by the Tedesco’s son, Gary. The Tedescos still spend their time together attending church at St. Ignatius every Sunday, taking trips and keeping up with their 18 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren and one on the way. They go out to breakfast together and spend many dinners at their children’s houses. They take in plays and attend flea markets They spent their 65th wedding anniversary on a houseboat trip on Norris

Lake in Tennessee organized by their children. Pam and Salvey enjoyed champagne and cake, also celebrating Salvey’s 87th birthday. Pam and Salvey passed on a lot of what they know to their children by spending family dinners together. The two are working on passing on what they know now to the third and fourth generations. “The (grandchildren and great-grandchildren) are really what keeps us going,” Pam said. Pam and Salvey are looking forward to many more memories in the next few years, especially their granddaughter’s wedding next June. Pam said the whole family will be back together, including their daughters who live in California and England. The Tedescos credit the success of their marriage and family to communication and their faith. “You never stop working at a marriage,” Pam and Salvey both said. “It’s been a great 65 years.”

Library offers more than books, free lunches, too Community Press Staff Report

Literature and books may feed the soul, but local libraries are also interested in feeding the body. In June alone, branches provided more than 5,000 lunches for children to bridge the hunger gap. Officials from the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County said 1,730 youngsters received assistance at Covedale, College Hill, Forest Park, Groesbeck, and North Central branch libraries. “This wonderful collaboration between the public library, Cincinnati Public Schools, and Win-

dow Arts Enrichment allows us to help fill the crucial nutritional needs of children while also offering opportunities for literacy programs enabling kids to stay more focused and attentive,” said Maria Sferra, the west regional manager for the library system. “Consequently, they also become better readers.” “It has always been core to the mission of our library to have open doors and provide easy access to whatever is needed,” she said. “Since libraries are natural gathering places, they are the perfect fit for this type of program. But we must first recognize

that without the help of our partnering organizations, lots of caring community volunteers, and staff members from across the entire library system – not just those who work at the 15 library locations where the program was provided – many kids would miss a meal.” Covedale Library Branch Manager Casey Titschinger said her branch receives about 10 lunches a day from Window Arts Enrichment and alternate between and hot and cold meals. “It gives a chance for kids who normally get the free lunch at school to still have access to lunch during the summer,” she said. Volunteer Elijah Kearns, 13, said he enjoys helping people at the Covedale Library. “I volunteer two to three days a week,” he said. “I like working with people and this is a great way to give back to the community.”

The libraries are getting lunches from two sources this year. Some branches are partnering with Cincinnati Public Schools. Others are teamed with Window Arts Enrichment. Robin Carpenter, executive director of Window Arts Enrichment, said her nonprofit got involved with the lunch program five years ago because they regularly saw hungry kids at programs and projects they were presenting. “Before you can enrich, you have to make sure the basics are there,” she said. “Cincinnati City Councilwoman Laure Quinliven suggested we talk with the libraries and it has turned out to be a great partnership.” In addition to the library lunches, WAE also provides meals through community centers and churches in the Greater

Cincinnati area, such as the All in One Ministry Youth Development Center in Cheviot. The library lunch program runs through Aug. 9. Carpenter estimates Window Arts Enrichment provides more than 1,500 meals a day with support from local community

food pantries, federal funds, grants and donations and money her group raises. “This is one of the richest countries in the world,” she said. “No child should be hungry.” For more information about Window Arts Enrichment, see the group’s website.

West-Side golfers prep to take to the links By Tom Skeen

Steam rolls into postseason

The Cincinnati Steam clinched a first-round by in the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League playoffs after a 9-3 win July 26 over the Licking County Settlers. After starting the season 10-9, the Steam won 14 of their final 21 games to finish the season 2416, which tied the Settlers for second place but the Steam own the tie-breaker. Coach Billy O’Conner’s team begins postseason play July 31 on the road and will be back home Aug. 1 for game two of a best-of-three series. Their opponent is still to be determined.

After a busy summer, the 2013 high school golf season is upon us. Here is a preview of the teams in the Western Hills Press coverage area:


La Salle

The reigning Cincinnati Enquirer Division I Player of the Year and Greater Cincinnati Golf Coaches Association Player of the Year is back for the Lancers. Junior Daniel Wetterich – cousin of former PGA Tour pro Brett Wetterich – averaged 69.9 on 18 holes and posted a Greater Catholic League best nine-hole average of 36.90 last season. “It’s a new year so the biggest thing is trying to convince him what he did last year doesn’t matter,” La Salle coach Jon Feldkamp said. “It’s a new year.” Returning players Drew Gautheir, Taylor Healey and Zach Smith will join Wetterich is trying to help the Lancers “Roll Deep” into the postseason in 2013. “I just hope the guys can help out a little bit,” Feldkamp said. “If they can play their game I think we’ll be just fine.” The Lancers get things started in 2013 Aug. 8 with the Anderson Invitational at Legendary Run Golf Course.

Mother of Mercy

The Bobcats are coached by Rick Nicklas and Jackie Sheridan and are coming off a 9-8 season in 2012. The girls’ season begins Aug. 6 against Centerville and Xenia at Twin Base Golf Course.

Elder 2009 graduate Matthew Robben takes over as coach in place of long-time coach Mike Trimpe. Robben coached Elder’s “B” team the previous two years. Senior Zach Bauer will captain the Panthers in 2013 and was part of the 2012 team that made a run to the district tournament. Fellow seniors Jake McSwigan and Davis Rensing both saw time with the “A” and “B” team last year, but were not part of the postseason roster. Both are expected to contribute heavily in 2013. Sophomore Kurt Fortman was Trimpe’s No. 4 golfer last season and with the graduation of three of the team’s top six golfers from a season ago, Fortman will be one of the top golfers this season for Robben. “He made the (postseason roster) last year and has had a really good summer so far,” Robben said of Fortman. “We are expecting some really good things out of him this year.” Junior Josh Rhoads caps the Panthers’ top five golfers for 2013. “The guys haven’t played together a whole lot, but they did a lot of offseason work together,” the first-year coach said. “The ones that could make it to (the offseason work) really bonded and played a lot of golf this summer together so I think once things get started and we get a few matches under our belt we will be just fine.” The Panthers get their season started Aug. 8 with the Anderson Invitational at Legendary Run Golf Course.

Oak Hills Coach Aron Strine takes is set to begin his fourth season with Oak Hills and he does so with a very experienced squad on his hands. Strine’s top five golfers include four seniors and a junior. Senior Sam Meek is back after averaging a 38.80 last season, which was sixth best in the Greater Miami Conference. Following Meek is fellow senior Ben Laumann was third on the team last season with a 40.10 nine-hole average. Hayden Burns, Kevin Wright and junior Ty Sauer round out the top five for the Highlanders. Burns, Wright and Sauer each averaged slightly over a 43 in 2012. With all this experience, Strine’s squad is looking for the schools first-ever league title after a second-place finish a season ago. “My five returning players do what they need to do in the offseason to prepare themselves for the regular season,” the coach said. “They work hard and are committed to getting better in search of our first GMC title. I look forward to the 2013 season as the sky is the limit of what we can achieve.” The Highlanders start their season Aug. 14 with the Fairfield Invitational at Fairfield – South Trace Golf Course. The Lady Highlanders will miss state qualifier Mackenzie Laumann, who is off to Northern Kentucky University where she will tow the links, but coach Sandy Fernbacher returns three starters from their district qualifying team of a season ago. Seniors Michal Beth Hobstetter and Megan Eckstein will captain the team in 2013, while sophomore Kelsey Wessels – Fernbacher’s No. 2 golfer last season – will likely take over Laumann’s top spot.


The Saints are coached by Peggy Korte and are coming off a 13-9 season in 2012 where they finished second in the Girls Greater Cincinnati League Scarlet Division. Korte’s team finished seventh in the final Enquirer Division I area coaches’ poll, but graduated four of their top seven golfers from last season. No other information was available before press deadline.

Runners set sights on finish line Oak Hills

By Tom Skeen

Area high school runners are set to take to the trails. Here is preview of Western Hills Press teams:


The Panthers are coached by Steve Spencer and return seniors Adam Gardner and Logan Steiner, who both reached the regional meet in 2012. No other information was available before press deadline.

La Salle

Coach Frank Russo will look to continue the Lancers’ streak of sending the team or an individual to the regional meet every year since 1984. Russo took over the team in 1983. The 2012 season marked the first time since 1985 that La Salle wasn’t represented at the state meet. “Since we won the state title in 2011, we have been in a rebuilding mode,” Russo said. “We’ve got pretty high expectations like we do every year, but we feel we are moving in the right direction.” Captain Adam Kluesener will lead the Lancers in 2013. “One of the things I like about Adam is he’s leading by example,” the coach said. “He’s at practice, he never misses conditioning, he’s constantly up front controlling the tempo and he’s pulling the younger guys along and keep everybody together as a pack. All of those things are a big part of being an outstanding role model and leader.” Junior Devin Sherman looks to be Russo’s No. 2 runner, followed by sophomore Brad Anneken, Jason Hanley, junior Michael Campbell and senior Andy Cornelius. “I feel we can be one of the top five team in the city,” Russo said. “Our short-term goal is to get to the regional meet as a team, get right up there in the mix to get in to the state championships.”

Bobcats in 2013. The two-time state qualifier aims to become the school’s first three-time state qualifier in cross country. “She’s looking very strong,” coach Scott Ridder said. “She worked very hard to improve and her form is better and she’s stronger than ever. Her goal is to finish in the top 10 in the state.” Hatch will also look to break the school record of18 minutes, 35 seconds. Her personal best thus far is 18:39. Natalie Geraci enters her third year with the varsity squad and looks to take over the No. 2 spot on Ridder’s roster after the departure of Melina Artmayer. “She’s been healthy and has had the best summer of her career,” Ridder said. “She’s looking to make a big improvement this year.” Tori Weckenbrock, Maria Waters and freshman Alex Stevens are all expected to contribute. Ridder is looking for big things from his freshman. “She ran for Oak Hills’ junior high program last year and there is a good chance she could be one of our top three runners this year.” The Bobcats begin Aug. 24 with the Lakota Fall Classic at Voice of America Park.

Girls track coach Jake Richards takes over the boys’ team in place of Joe Zienner in 2013. The Highlanders graduated their top three runners from a season ago in Mitch Bischoff, Blake Meyer and Ross Frondorf. Shellie Hageman mans the Lady Highlanders’ cross country squad. B’s Frondorf is back after earning first-team All-Greater Miami Conference honors last year. Joining Frondorf are second-teamers Sydney Kilgore, Karlee Meiman and Emma Zimmer. No other information was available.


The Saints are coming off a season where they placed fourth at the GGCL meet and were fifth at districts. Senior Brooke Schleben reached the regional meet and was named first-team All-GGCL. Karen Berndt coaches the Saints. No other information was available before deadline.

St. Xavier

Coming off their first state title since 2003, leading the charge this season will be seniors Michael Hall and Evan Stifel. Hall finished 24th at state last season, while Stifel was 32nd. Mike Dehring returns to coach the Bombers in 2013.


Carrie Stecher returns to coach both the boys and girls cross country teams. Chad Mason returns after reaching the regional meet last season. Kaden Wells will be in the mix as well as freshman Nick Tripplett, who had a successful middle school career, according to Stecher. “We have quite a few new faces,” the coach said. “It’s really exciting.” State qualifier in the hurdles Lizzi Lakamp enters her first year with the cross country team and along with senior Jessica Smith and sophomore Sutty Godar will make up the Yellow Jackets’ top three runners this fall.

The Yellow Jackets are coach by Chris Helfer and are coming off a fifthplace finish in the Cincinnati Hills League a season ago. Helfer’s squad gets underway Aug. 6 with the Madeira Invitational at The Vineyard. No other information was available by press deadline. The Lady Yellow Jackets return four starters from a season ago, which will make things a little easier for first-year coach Jeff Smith. Seniors Sara Reatherford and Emily Godar will lead the charge for Smith, while juniors Emily Oldfield and Kandice Penn round out his top four. “I think we’ll be decent,” Smith said.

“They had some success last year, but we’ll have to see.” Due to the building of a new school, the Yellow Jackets don’t start the 2013-14 school year until Sept. 9, which has hurt Smith’s recruitment of new players. After losing an eighth-grader to soccer, Smith is hoping the new school, which will hold kindergarten through 12th grade, will provide a nice recruiting ground for the future. “I’m hoping having everybody in one school will let us see what we have as far as junior high goes,” the first-year coach said. “I don’t think Taylor has had many girls (on the team) in years past, so let’s hope that changes.” The girls get their season started Aug. 9 at Shaker Run Golf Course against CHCA.

New legislation may help sewer woes Our sewer rates in Hamilton County have increased by a staggering 130 percent over the last 10 years. What’s more, the county faces paying an additional $3.2 billion in mandated sewer update costs – enough money to build two Brent Spence Bridges! Jaw-dropping bills like ours are occurring in communities across America. Why such huge rate increases? Because local communities are attempting to comply with consent decrees they’ve been forced to agree to by the federal EPA. Currently, the EPA takes a one-size-fits-all, top-down, Washington-knowsbest approach in enforcing sewer and stormwater standards. This tactic has led to exorbitant costs which make it next to impossible for local

communities to adequately fund police, fire, road repair and other local priorities. It’s a big problem. Steve Chabot Awhile COMMUNITY PRESS back, Hamilton GUEST COLUMNIST County Commissioner Todd Portune came to me seeking help on this important issue. He’s been working with a coalition of other local government officials all across the country struggling with the same problem. Todd and I, our staffs and the coalition have been working together to come up with a solution. And I believe we’ve found it. On July 17, I introduced

legislation which, if passed, would give local communities more flexibility to come up with innovative, less expensive ways to address their wastewater and stormwater challenges. Communities would still have to achieve the same high standards for clean water but additional flexibility should allow many communities to do so in a more affordable and cost-effective manner. Specifically, my bill would call for the EPA to allow 15 pilot communities across America to work with the EPA to set up their own program to come into compliance with clean water standards. Everybody wins under this common-sense approach. By allowing the EPA to work more effectively with pilot communi-

ties, residents of those communities should get cleaner water at a lower cost. Meanwhile, Congress, the EPA and affected state agencies will be able to study and learn from these programs and, if successful, eventually allow more local communities to adopt what works best in their area, thus saving taxpayers a lot of money while still maintaining stringent clean water standards. It’s my hope, and goal, that Hamilton County will be chosen as one of the 15 pilot programs. Our community, of course, would have to apply and compete for one of the 15 slots in a fair and above-board process. But if selected, the Hamilton County Commissioners estimate this legislation could save county ratepayers

hundreds of millions of dollars compared to the current estimated cost of mandated repairs. This has been a difficult and challenging issue for our community, and I want to thank and commend Commissioner Portune for his leadership in addressing it in a very innovative and thoughtful manner. I guess this is at least one example of bipartisanship at work – a Democrat and a Republican working together to get something done for our community, and for our country.

Budget moving Ohio Consider who to get estimate in right direction from, engineer or foundation? The Ohio budget that was signed into law at the end of last month was not perfect, and neither is the budget process. But after all the ideas, testimony and alternatives were weighed, I think it is a budget that will continue to move Ohio in the right direction. And Ohio is headed in the right direction. One way to consider evaluating Ohio’s financial situation is to consider it as a “turn around” business with a $30 billion per year budget. Compared to the state’s financial position just three years ago, the transformation that has taken place is exceptional. While we would all agree that there is still a long way to go, I am pleased by the progress that has been made and expect it to continue. Since the beginning of the previous budget cycle in early 2011, Ohioans have created more than 170,000 jobs. Those jobs provide opportunities for people to make their own individual decisions and lead to an increase in total wealth in our state. Because people who pay taxes first have to earn the money, cutting income taxes on income earners and small businesses was the responsible thing to do. It will make Ohio more competitive in attracting new business and will help existing Ohio businesses grow. The growth in wealth created and the jobs that create the wealth makes it possible to fund important public institutions, such as schools. This budget increases funding for nearly 70 percent of the school districts in Ohio, and 80 percent of the students in the state will be attending schools receiving greater funding. No school district is getting less than they did last year. This was possible because we have a growing economy that produces jobs. It is also important to have funds on hand should the state experience an economic downturn in the future. Gov. Kasich recently announced that an additional $996 billion is being put in the rainy day fund, expanding it to a total of $1.48 billion. This fund is analogous to ensuring adequate working capital in a business. In an economic downturn in the past, the state was forced to cut


spending for schools and infrastructure. The $1.48 billion in our state’s “balance sheet” will allow continued funding of critical services when the tax revenue

fluctuates. In government, there is always pressure for money to be spent. In the future, the Legislature must be more assertive earlier in the budgeting process so that more weight is given to consideration of services that the people wish to expand and as important, to the reduction or eliminating programs that no longer serve the public interest or are no longer important enough to compete for funding. The state budget impacts everyone. I think this budget is a positive step forward for Ohio, and I was proud to support it.

A publication of

f you are a homeowner that has foundation cracks or basement seepage, whom should you call? A contractor or a structural engineer? Contractors will typically give you a free estimate. This is their opinion of what might be the cause of your home’s condition. In reality, it is only a description of work the contractor promises to provide. The term free is always inviting and since the foundation repair contractor is in this business, the sales person is assumed to understand the cause and solution. Multiple contractors with similar solutions or proposals may still be the wrong repair. If you listen to radio announcers, they will always recommend contractors, even to family and friends. Listeners may believe, since the radio personality appears to be honest and knowledgeable, the contractor can be presumed to be knowledgeable, fair and honest. Radio personalities get paid for the use of their name. Also, a contractor’s opinions of how to repair your home’s issues might change depending on their workload. If their backlog of work is light, they will try harder to get your project, which may mean they have more inventive (and expensive) solutions to share with you. The contractor should only be recognized as an expert in his product and its installation. This doesn’t mean his installation will solve your home’s problem, but will pro-

vide a bill that you will have to pay. A property owner that pays a contractor thousands of dolMichael lars and does Montgomery not get the COMMUNITY PRESS right solution GUEST COLUMNIST is out a lot of money. Even $500 for the wrong repair is expensive, especially in today’s economy. I know that several homeowners are afraid to call an engineer to find out the problem if one really does exist. We have several contractors that will suggest a client to schedule an appointment with us and never do. Some feel the contractor should understand the problem; some are only looking for a free estimate, others are afraid to call. I have a difficult time understanding why a homeowner will risk several thousand dollars without getting a professional opinion or design plan. No one would build a house without a design plan. Several years ago, a condominium association almost wrote a check for $118,000 to repairs cracks, but after talking to us, they spent less than $1,000 to repair the problem. Another homeowner called our firm recently because he had hired a contractor for repairs several years ago that didn’t fix the problem. Recently, a 75-year-old widow had $11,000 and $30,000 bids for

foundation repairs from reputable firms because she had cracks in her hallway, no foundation cracks and only a hairline wide brick crack. None of her home’s issues actually required a foundation repair. She asked to give me a hug. These are just a few examples of many I could share. For a minimal inspection fee, an engineer can inform you if there is really a concern. If repairs are suggested, an engineering design plan can be provided that several contractors can bid from and get a building permit if appropriate. You will also have a record of the necessary repairs, instead of a written estimate or a sketch with x’s and lines. Look for an engineer that will take the time to fully explain the problem, discuss options for repairs and willing to provide a design plan. The engineer is working for the good of your home. Don’t be over-sold or pressured. Some contractors are very high pressure and are probably offering a high bid proposal. If an engineer’s opinion seems excessive or not logical, it may well worth getting a second engineer’s opinion. No one wants to spend thousands for the wrong type of work.

to others and the more merciful we become.” Attentiveness and compassion are two values she lives by. She shared examples of becoming more aware of the brothers and sisters around her, which lead to compassion, noting “if you focus on the goodness within those around you amazing things will happen.” Following the all-school presentation, Lacey held a question-and-answer session with juniors and seniors in Kate Mitchell’s HerStory class, a women’s studies course that focuses on current issues, topics and concerns facing women of today, here in the United States as well as worldwide. Students have recently finished reading Lacey’s book “This Flowing Toward Me: A Story of God Arriving in Strangers.”



Taylor winner in Golden Lion Awards Film Festival

The Mary C. Donovan Memorial Scholarship Fund Board of Trustees has announced the recipients of scholarships for the 2013-2014 school year at St. Teresa of Avila School. Scholarship winners best exemplify Donovan's commitment to the Catholic faith and education. They were nominated on due to their academic records, as well as their service to the school and the parish. All 10 of Donovan's children completed their grade school education at St. Teresa. Pictured from left are seventh-graders Olivia Ryan, Quinn James, Alex Vale, Nate Schatzman, Emily Schmitz and Evan Bold. Gabby Zaccaria was also an award winner, but wasn't present on the day of the assembly. PROVIDED.

Sister Marilyn Lacey, founder of Mercy Beyond Borders, spoke to a Mother of Mercy High School all-school presentation about her experience in the organization. Mercy Beyond Borders, formed in 2008, partners with displaced women and children in ways that alleviate their extreme poverty. Lacey shared her story of being a math teacher in Los Angles for several years before answering a simple bulletin board message asking for help with displaced refugees. From that moment on she has dedicated the past 30 years to working with refugees. When she founded Mercy Beyond Borders they began in South Sudan, which has one-quarter of the world’s displaced people, and later expanded to Haiti, where tens of thousands remain displaced since the 2010 earthquake. Mercy Beyond Borders states “Where Women Learn, Women Matter,” and their focus is on women and girls – whether promoting health, supporting economic development or providing formal schooling and scholarships. In the mix of sharing stories about her work with refugees and Mercy Beyond Borders, Lacey shared her belief that “the closer we get to God, the more attentive we become


Mother of Mercy’s connection with Mercy Beyond Borders began during the 20102011 school year when Student Council initiated a Global Action Project connected to its annual Student Walk. In the spring of 2011, a portion of funds raised was donated to Mercy Beyond Borders. The funds were designated for high school scholarships for two Sudanese refugee girls in the GO! (Girls’ Opportunities) Scholars program at $1,000 each, another $1,000 to provide health kits and medicine to Sudanese girls’ schools, and finally another $1,000 sent to the St. Bakhita School to support 10 primary school students for an entire school year.

The Golden Lion Film Festival provides a real world opportunity to connect students with judges from the work force who offer valuable feedback. This connection between professionals and students allows the learning process to transcend the classroom.” Contest judge, UA alumna and Local 12 news anchor Tiffany Wilson ‘03 said, “Ursuline students went over and above to create a true red carpet experience for the Golden Lions Awards. The evening was a wonderful showcase of the best of the best of student cinematography in the Tristate. I was blown away by the creativity, skill and professionalism demonstrated in some of the films. Kudos to all who were involved!” Another judge, Sara Drabik of Northern Kentucky University, said “It was amazing to see so much budding talent represented on the screen and in person at the festival. It was an honor to be a judge, and I can’t wait to see what these young filmmakers create next!” Ursuline senior and one of the event emcees, Grace Ries of Liberty Township, concurred. “The event was a great opportunity for students to showcase their films and meet other likeminded, creative people in their area. The amount of talent among local schools alone is unbelievable, and should make for another competitive round of submissions next year.” Ursuline senior Grace Ries, Jacob Logeman of Indian Hill High School and contest judge Greg Ullman, senior project manager of Prestige AV & Creative Services, at the Golden Lion Film Festival.

Cherry bounce is heirloom classic I couldn’t resist buying an extra pound of dark cherries from the grocery. Not to eat out of hand or put into fruit salads, but to make cherry bounce. It’s an old fashioned liqueur with true heirloom status. I believe the Shakers used to make something like cherry bounce and used it as a medicinal for sore throats, etc. The recipe is a hand-written one from my friend Ann Rudloff, a Kentucky reader. Her mom, Mary, made it every year. Mary said it would cure just about anything. She’s in heaven now and is probably still brewing up batches! I’ve known friends to use it as an after dinner cordial and to spoon the cherries from the bottom of the bottle onto ice cream or cake.

Classic cherry bounce

Mary used to use sugar string candy, several pieces, for the sugar. I can’t always find that so I use regular sugar. 1 pound dark cherries stemmed but not pitted. 2 cups sugar 1 bottle bourbon whiskey

Put cherries in glass jar. Pour sugar and whiskey over. Put lid on. Shake each day until sugar dissolves. Here’s the kicker, though. Wait

about 4-6 months before drinking. I keep mine in my pie safe. Great as a holiday gift. Rita Be sure Heikenfeld and put on RITA’S KITCHEN the label that the cherries have pits.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

I’m substituting raw honey for the sugar in one of my batches. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Summer muffaletta with olive dressing

A bit messy to eat, but oh so good! Tomatoes, red onions and lettuce from the garden make this a favorite summer sandwich. One loaf Italian or favorite bread, sliced into two horizontally. You can use the round or long loaf. Filling: ⁄2 pound each: Havarti or provolone cheese and ham 1 ⁄4 pound salami Tomato slices Red onion rings Leaf lettuce


Dressing: Go to taste on this. If you don’t like black olives, use green olives.

You may wind up with dressing left over. It makes a nice spread for wraps.

⁄2 cup finely chopped black olives 2 ⁄3 cup olive oil 1 ⁄3 cup red wine vinegar Minced onion to taste (start with 1 tablespoon) Palmful fresh basil, chopped 1 teaspoon minced garlic 1 tablespoon fresh oregano, minced or 1 teaspoon dried 1

Pepper to taste Whisk together dressing ingredients. Set aside. Hollow out bottom loaf, leaving 1⁄2 thick sides. Hollow out top loaf, but leave sides a bit thicker. Spread dressing on inside of top and bottom loaves. Set top aside. Start layering meats, cheese, vegetables and lettuce, brushing each layer with dressing, until you run out of filling. Press each layer down as you go. Press top onto sandwich and wrap and chill for at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours. Cut into big wedges to serve.

Can you help?

Perpetual bread “starter.” For Nanci P. who said she was watching Paula Deen’s show and a person brought with her a starter that she had had for 42 years. “She added a bit to her cinnamon yeast rolls, but

A summer muffaletta with olive dressing is a bit messy, but it is good tasting.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

she said you can add to any bread, muffin, etc. How would I create my own starter and are they difficult to feed, keep temperature proper, and any other criteria?” Nanci told me this is not a sourdough starter, and I’m thinking it’s something like my friendship bread starter, which can be kept for eons as long as it’s kept

fed. It can also be frozen. Does anybody have a starter similar to what Nanci wants? Greyhound Grille’s pasta Gabrielle. Kentucky reader Mary Ann B. would love to know how to make this or something similar. Update on 7-Up cake. Thanks to all who sent in this recipe for Tom W. I am paring through them

and will share one soon. Readers sent in both from scratch recipes and ones that start with a cake mix.

CASKids: Could We Live On Mars? is the program at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, at the Cincinnati Astronomical Society, 5274 Zion Road, Miami Township. A donation is requested for admission. Open to all ages, but ideal for grades one through six. No reservations required We have always been captivated by the Red Planet. Before the days of TV and radio, fabulous stories had been written about astronauts exploring this far away and mysterious world. Generations have wondered if there has ever been civilized life on Mars. In 1895 American astronomer Percival Lowell turned his giant telescope to Mars and mapped what he thought were irrigation canals bringing much needed water from the planet’s north and south poles to desperate Martian farmers across the planet. Have there ever been Martians? Are there any Martians now? Will we be the first Martians? For the next installment of CASKids, Elizabeth Daniels from Cincinnati State Technical and Community College will help you explore what it might take for astronauts to live on Mars. What technology would you need? What would you have to bring with you? How would you engineer and build a colony on another world? What science would you do that the current NASA rovers can’t do? Astronomers will be on hand to answer questions, show how telescopes work, and help you view the night sky through the big telescopes. Presentation held clear or cloudy.

Door-to-door sales have three days to cancel When you buy something from a door-to-door salesman you have three days in which to cancel. However, one area woman says she had a hard time trying to cancel a purchase made by her mother and her experience serves as a lesson for us all. Renee Gruseck, of Price Hill, says a door-todoor salesman sold her mother a new vacuum cleaner. The problem is she didn’t need a new vacuum cleaner. “I came in and took a look at the sweeper and the contract

and got on the phone with company,” she said. The distributor of the vacuum Howard cleaner Ain had sold HEY HOWARD! the unit with lots of attachments. So she had her mother sign to cancel the deal and then called the company to explain about her mother’s mild cognitive impairment. “I explained to them

that there was an impairment and that they’d be best served discussing it with me. My concern was if she cancels it they would try to resell the sweeper to her,” Gruseck said. Nevertheless, when the company returned to pick up the vacuum cleaner and return her mother’s sweeper, her mother signed a new contract to buy the vacuum cleaner again. Gruseck said all she wants to do is return the entire vacuum cleaner and get back her moth-

er’s sweeper. But at this point, she was having a hard time dealing with the company. “I had an appointment scheduled with one of their employees a week ago at 8:30 in the evening and they didn’t show up,” she said. “There are other methods of sweeping and cleaning your floor that doesn’t require a $1,500 sweeper,” Gruseck said. Actually, when you include the 25 percent interest rate in the threeyear payment contract she signed, the total cost of the sweeper comes to

more than $2,100. “She could afford the sweeper, but it was a matter that she didn’t need a sweeper. She had a sweeper. She has her carpets professionally cleaned so there’s no need for her to have that sweeper,” Gruseck said. Finally, the company scheduled another pickup and this time Gruseck took off from work so she could be there. As a result, she was able to return the unit and get back her mother’s vacuum — along with the money her mother had

already put down on the unit. Bottom line, remember you have three days to cancel a door-to-door sale. And by all means keep an eye on older relatives who may not fully realize what they’re getting themselves into with some of those contracts.

program continues to grow.

Sale proceeds will help replace van Faith Fellowship Church, 6734 Bridgetown Road, is hosting a benefit indoor rummage sale for John Ginn Jr., whose hand-controlled van was stolen from his father’s driveway in Cheviot June 20. The rummage sale is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Aug. 2 and 3. Ginn has multiple sclerosis and requires a van with hand controls to get to work. The van also had power wheelchair, manual wheelchair, and fourwheel walker. Because the van wasn’t worth much, he did not have insurance against theft. “Who would have thought someone would steal a beat-up ’92 Plymouth?” Ginn said. Police recovered the van June 25 but it had been stripped and is undriveable. “The only things that were left in the van were my arm crutches, my leg brace (thank goodness) and my manual wheelchair, but when I went to use the wheelchair the wheels were dislodged and wobbled. Everything else was gone, including my Bible,” Ginn said. Ginn is working with homeowners insurance to replace the stolen medical equipment, but is in need of a van with hand controls. Without it, his independence is severely limited. Donations for the rum-

Drama workshop opens riding the rails The Drama Workshop is deep into preparations for the opening show of its new season, the melodrama “Love Rides the Rails.” The play opens Friday, Aug. 2, at The Glenmore Playhouse, 3716 Glenmore Ave., Cheviot. “Love Rides the Rails” is an old-style melodrama, with strong heroes, lovely

damsels in distress, and dastardly villains who will do anything to con a widow out of her stake in the Westwood, Cheviot and Dent Railroad. It’s familyfriendly fare that will delight people of all ages. Valeria Ambergy plays the pious Widow Hopewell, and has worked to create a complex charac-

ter amidst all the camp. “Mrs. Hopewell only wants what’s best for her daughter. She acts old and infirm – but is really sharp. We are having fun – and can be as crazy as we want to be. I’m reminded of my childhood cartoons like Dudley Do-Right and Rocky & Bullwinkle.” Long-time Drama

Workshop member Vickie Greco agrees: “I like the show because it is silly and good old fashioned fun. We can put aside our daily struggles for just a few moments, lighten up, and enter a childlike world where it is just good vs. evil, and good wins.” The Drama Workshop is inviting the audience to

participate in the fun. Patrons will be coached to boo at the villains, and cheer the heroes during the performance. Preshow activities will include face-painting for children (so you can get your own dastardly mustache) and a photo booth. “Love Rides the Rails” will be presented Aug. 2-

Aug. 11. Showtimes are 8 p.m. on Aug. 2, 3, 9, and 10; matinees will be at 2 p.m. on Aug. 3, 4, 10, and 11. All tickets are $15, and reservations are recommended. Tickets may be reserved through the The Drama Workshop ticket line at 513-598-8303 or through the website at

Dental center at West High, Dater The Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati and The Deaconess Associations Foundation have provided funding to construct a dental center as part of the new Deaconess Health Check School Based Health Center at Western Hills University High School/Dater High School. The four-chair dental center is currently being constructed as part of a comprehensive school-based health center and is expected to open in January 2014. The center will provide year-round dental services to students and nearby Head Start toddlers. The center is ex-

pected to serve 2,000 children and teens annually. The original construction of the schoolbased health center was funded by a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration. The dental center added an additional $165,000 to the original $500,000 design and construction fees, and the Health Foundation and Deaconess Associations Foundation have provided grants to cover the added cost. “Access to dental services for children covered by Medicaid has been a longstanding challenge,” says Dr. Marilyn Crumpton, Cin-

Of Cincinnati Public Schools’ 33,000-plus student population, 70 percent are eligible for Medicaid. “This is a dedicated partnership that is in harmony with the Deaconess organization’s focus on advancing healthcare,” says Tony Woods, chairman, Deaconess Associations Inc. “A wide range of partners has already joined to financially support these two projects.” Francie Wolgin, senior program officer, Health Foundation, says, “The Cincinnati

Health Department is hiring and supervising the dental providers, as well as covering operating costs, and Cincinnati Dental Society Foundation is coordinating volunteer dentists to provide additional services for children in the center.” Cincinnati Public Schools is providing the space rent free, and will pay all utilities and facility upkeep costs. The Children’s Oral Health Network and Cincinnati Health Department are working to raise an additional $197,000 to fund the purchase of dental equipment for the clinic.

PWC educates elderly homeowners on fall prevention One out of three Americans 65 years and older fall each year. In the city of Cincinnati alone, 2,300 calls were made to 911 reporting a fall. In Hamilton County the number of falls from 2004 to 2011 has risen 23 percent and that number is constantly increasing. With 48 percent of these falls happening at home, People Working Cooperatively is looking for ways to make prevention a household name. PWC is a 38-year-old non-profit that offers home repairs, weatherization and modifications for low income elderly and disabled homeowners. Its for-profit social enterprise, Whole Home, offers home modifications and aging in place solutions for anyone at any income level. White Oak resident Ron Henlein of People Working Cooperative has been researching local and national fall rates and is putting together a plan to reduce falls in the Tristate area. Some of the groups PWC is collaborating with for the new program include Hamilton County Fall Prevention Task Force, the city of Cincinnati, Mercy, TriHealth, Greater Cincinnati Foundation, Visiting Nurses Association and others. “Specifically, PWC is heavily involved in developing a 'Fall Prevention' program for seniors; this will include an in-home safety checklist and recommendations to assure the individual is aware of the high 'fall risk' areas throughout the home,” Henlein said. “Falls are not a natural part of aging and changes such as grab bars in the bath, banisters on all steps along with proper lighting, elimination of area rugs which are in poor condition,

night lighting from the bedroom to the bathroom all can substantially reduce your chances of experiencing a fall.” PWC’s social enterprise, Whole Home, offers seniors tips on how to keep fall free. PWC offers low-income homeowners home modifications to help them live safely in their home, where they want to be. “PWC and Whole Home have been engaged in a huge amount of outreach to help keep elderly people safe ... over 1,000 people year to date that we’ve educated on fall prevention so far,” Henlein said. “People need to understand that there is a huge tsunami that began to hit this country in 2011 as the baby boomers began to turn 65 years old. This tsunami will gain enormous momentum throughout the upcoming years as 10,000 boomers turn 65 every day through 2030,” he said. “The shift in the age of our population will bring major reform in healthcare and governmental programs to support these individuals as over 20 percent of all citizens in the United States will be over 65.” “The need for fall prevention is growing and becoming a large issue for our community.” For more information on People Working Cooperatively, visit or connect with the nonprofit on Facebook at pleWorkingCooperative ly and Twitter at @PWCCincy.

Teacher discusses human trafficking in D.C.

Cincinnati resident and Dater Montessori teacher Ann Michael recently met the with the Ohio Congressional delegation. Michael was among 250 individuals from 40 states who took part in a day of advocacy organized by human rights agency International Justice Mission (IJM). Participants met

with more than 210 Congressional offices to build support for strong U.S. policies to combat trafficking and slavery at home and abroad. Michael and fellow advocates from Ohio advocated for passage of the Human Trafficking Prioritization Act, which elevates the authority of the

State Department’s Trafficking in Persons Office – a U.S. government agency dedicated to combating human trafficking. U.S. citizens’ interest in eradicating slavery has kept the issue high on the political agenda in Washington for the past decade. In recent years, the existence of proven anti-slavery models has equipped advocates with data and success stories to encourage Members of Congress and Senators from across the political spectrum to support increased investment in anti-trafficking programs. “As a CPS teacher at Dater Montessori, I look into the faces of my students every day and see the joy they get from learning and playing with their friends. It’s hard to believe that there are millions of children around the world who instead of going to school or playing with their friends, are working 14 hours a day, 7

days a week in a brick factory, a rice mill, or a stone quarry. Knowing that it is possible to combat this unspeakable crime has given me the confidence to advocate for strong policies and funding with our elected leaders in government,” said Michael. She and other District 1 residents met with U.S. Rep. Steve Chabot in his Capitol Hill office. All government agencies have faced budget cuts in the face of sequestration, making citizen support for US government programs to combat


the organization’s work there from 9 to 50 states in the country, resulting in the freeing of nearly 1,000 bonded labors in just ten months. “With an estimated 27 million people currently in slavery today, the enormity of the problem can be overwhelming. But even one family being freed from bondage is worthy of our efforts and U.S. government investment,” said Michael. For more information about International Justice Mission visit

slavery more important than ever. Organizations like IJM are seeing significant improvements in public justice systems protecting the poor and preventing slavery, even over short periods of time. In just four years of collaboration with local authorities in Cebu, the Philippines, IJM has seen the number of minors available in the commercial sex trade reduced by 79 percent. Private investment by for IJM’s anti-slavery work in India has enabled a dramatic expansion of
