What was once a blank, white wall has been transformed into a work of art depicting the people and images from throughout Westwood’s history. ArtWorks, a nonprofit organization that connects artists of all ages with opportunities in the arts through inspiring apprenticeships, community partnerships and public art, has completed the creation of a mural on a wall at Henke Winery, at the corner of Harrison and Epworth avenues. “It is a source of pride,” said John Eby, a member of Westwood Works and one of about a dozen residents who served on the committee who worked with ArtWorks artist Jessie Boone to develop the mural’s design. “It will present a positive image of Westwood throughout the entire city.” Eby said the project has provided an opportunity to engage the community and give something beautiful back to residents. The mural also helps with the neighborhood’s goal of improving the arts in Westwood, he said. ArtWorks selected Westwood this summer as one of the neighborhoods to receive a mural through its MuralWorks project. “Our goal is to put at least one mural in every Cincinnati neighborhood,” said Tamara Harkavy, director of ArtWorks. This year marked the fourth summer for the project, she said. Twenty-eight murals have been

In addition to Westwood, six other city neighborhoods received murals this summer. Through the program, ArtWorks employs teenage and professional artists, as well as works with community members, to create murals, Harkavy said. The murals speak to the city’s history, imagination and aspirations while serving as powerful agents of neighborhood transformation, civic pride and identity. Boone worked for five weeks

“I enjoyed working with all the apprentices. I thought they were all wonderful.” Eby said the hard work the artists put into the mural is clearly visible. “I was really impressed with how well they did,” he said. “They did a great job.” ArtWorks plans to officially unveil and dedicate the mural during the second annual Westwood Art Show, which is set for Saturday, Sept. 18, at Westwood Town Hall.

painting the mural with a team of eight teenage artists, many of whom live in Westwood. “I am pleased with the mural,” Boone said. “I think it looks great and we received a lot of positive responses from the community while we were working on it.” She said this was the first time she managed a MuralWorks project and she was impressed with the work ethic of the teen artists who worked as apprentices on the piece. “I had a great summer,” she said.


Anna-Lisa Flinchbaugh is a dancer. She started in pull-ups at the age of 2 and even a surgery for scoliosis that left her with two titanium rods in her back and an admonition that a dance career was not in her cards hasn’t dimmed her pursuit of the craft. With the determination and discipline that generally accompanies the gift of dance, she stomped right by that warning, and is now dancing toward a future in entertainment. A big jete toward that goal was landing a role on the second season of Taking the Stage last year. “Taking the Stage,” canceled after last season, was a reality show produced by Nick Lachey. The show followed high school students at The School for Creative and Performing Arts, his alma mater. Cameras followed a select halfdozen students from audition through their year at school. Flinchbaugh had seen the show, and decided to audition for the school. She was not only accepted to SCPA, but was cast in the show’s second season.


Anna-Lisa Flinchbaugh cuddles with the family’s golden retreiver Bella. The Bridgetown teen will have a whirlwind of activity in coming weeks, culminating with an invitation to the Teen Choice Awards, where she and other cast members of “Taking the Stage” are nominated for best reality show. “It was surreal at first,” she said. “I was new to the school, and there are cameras following me all over the place. It was a lot to take in. But I loved the school. Everyone was so serious about their craft, like I am. It was awesome and challenging and I loved it.” She is returning to Oak Hills High School for her senior year, but says she treasures her year at SCPA.

She says the show captured her junior year accurately. “It was a little rocky,” she said. “I went through a breakup with my boyfriend, then jumped into another relationship … It was hard.”

And dance was hard. She has studied with Amy Vandergriff for her whole dance career, and wanted to continue while doing the show. She had classes at school and was trying to keep up


with her dance team, as well. Flinchbaugh said not knowing what to expect from the show was nerve wracking, as well. “It’s like watching a home video. It’s embarrassing at first, and then it’s just funny. They film a lot of hours and you don’t know what they are going to use, but when I saw what they did, it was spot-on.” She says the opportunity was stressful, but it also pushed her to grow. “It was such a turnaround for me. I think it helped me understand what really is important, and not to worry about what other people think,” she said. “It helped me feel more comfortable who I am as a person and as a performer,” said Flinchbaugh. “Taking the Stage” is over, but it has led to other opportunities. In March, she spent three weeks in New York taping episodes for “One

Her show is up against reality giants such as “Jersey Shore,” “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” “The Price of Beauty” and “The Hills.” “It’s crazy,” she said.

“But I am really excited. It will be so much fun to be there.” It’s enough to turn a 17year-old girl’s head but Flinchbaugh seems unaffected by all the attention. Her waist-length blonde hair is casual and loose, and she sits barefoot and bluejeaned in her Bridgetown family room, happy to cuddle with her Golden lab Bella. She bought her award dress at Casa Blanca, a vintage shop in Cincinnati, and is looking forward to her senior year and any other opportunities her talent will bring. “It’s all hard to believe,” she said. “I’m just a normal kid.”

Buddy LaRosa’s pizza story moves to stage Gannett News Service Up, up and away went the spinning disc of pizza dough. Wider and wider it spread as it spun. Returning to earth, the dough landed in the cshaped cupped hands of Buddy LaRosa. With a slight twist of his torso, a quick turn of his arms and some Italiano flair, the dough flew again. “That’s about the size of a large pizza,” Cincinnati’s primo pizza purveyor said Thursday night as he spread the dough on a prep table. “Here!” he called to Jared Moore of White Oak. “You try it! Piece of cake!” He tossed the dough to the unsuspecting 26-yearold song and dance man. Moore plays the title role in the musical, “Everybody’s Buddy.” The show honors the life of the soon to be 80-year-old pizza baron, philanthropist and celebrated soft touch. “I went to the hospital today,” La Rosa said between tosses. “Four people gave me their business cards and asked for my


Buddy La Rosa watches actor Jared Moore learn to toss a pizza. Moore will portray Buddy La Rosa in “Everybody's Buddy.” help.” He plans to lend each one a hand. “Everybody’s Buddy” revolves around two kinds of dough. There’s the stuff made from flour. Then, there’s the dough from a success story of a kid who grew up “in a broken home filled with love” and grew the West Side pizzeria he opened in 1954 into a chain grossing about $132 million in 2009 and garnering well over half the pizza business in Cincinnati.

The musical’s premiere runs Aug. 11-14 at the College of Mount St. Joseph Theater. That’s where

About ‘Everybody’s Buddy’ “Everybody’s Buddy” will run from Aug. 11-14, 2010 at the College of Mount Saint Joseph campus theater at 8 p.m. each day. The musical production will feature an original score with songs written by “Everybody’s Buddy” creator, Dick Ruehrwein, local songwriter Ed Howard, and Andrew and Andrea Raynor, songwriters from New York City. A 16-piece orchestra comprised of students from University of Cincinnati’s College Conservatory of Music will provide the orchestration for numbers. The cast of Everybody’s Buddy is dominated by local theater students from the CCM and Northern Kentucky University’s Department of Theatre & Dance. Jared Moore, a graduate of Northern Kentucky University’s voice program and La Salle High School alumni, will star in the lead role as Buddy LaRosa. A West Side native, Moore has starred in previous stage productions including, Tony in “West Side Story” and Judas Iscariot in “Jesus Christ Superstar.” Other starring members of the cast include: • Patrick Thernes (Gabby, Buddy’s Guardian Angel), an Elder High School alumni, has appeared in “Lil’ Abner,” “Camelot” and “Guys and Dolls,” which earned the Cincinnati Entertainment Award as Best Ensemble. • Stacey Sands (Grandma Panaro) of Florence, Ky., is a lyric soprano who recently graduated with her master’s of music

degree from CCM. She is a member of the Vocal Arts Ensemble of Cincinnati and is in her fifth season with the Cincinnati Opera. Previous musical theater performances have included Sheila in “Hair,” Sonia in “Godspell” and Yonah in “Children of Eden.” • Heather Roush (Mary LaRosa, Buddy’s mother) an Oak Hills High School alumni, recently graduated from Northern Kentucky University with a degree in musical theater where she took the stage as Kate McGowan in “Titanic” and Erzulie in “Once On This Island.” • Sebastian LaRosa (Tony LaRosa, Buddy’s father) of Lawrenceburg, Ind., is Buddy LaRosa’s grandson. He will be attending the University of Southern Indiana this fall. His performing credits include Colonel Crabtree in “Blazing Guns at Roaring Gulch” and Oscar Linquist in “Sweet Charity.” • Pia LaRosa (Aunt Dina) of Lawrenceburg, is an adjunct faculty member at CCM Preparatory Department and Buddy LaRosa’s niece. Her performing credits include Nettie Fowler in “Carousel” and Adrianna in “Boys from Syracuse.” Tickets are $22 for adults, $20 for seniors over 60 years of age and $15 for kids aged 4-15 and can be purchased by calling 513-347-4781 or at the Boudinot LaRosa’s, 2417 Boudinot Ave. All proceeds from the musical will benefit Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.

Thursday’s dough tossing lesson took place. It follows LaRosa’s life from before his birth to his childhood growing up in Cincinnati’s Little Italy, through the opening of his first pizzeria on the west side in 1954. It culminates in a 1973 scene where an entire community of student athletes and coaches help LaRosa rebuild his flagship Boudinot Avenue pizzeria after a potentially devastating fire. “My father loves Cincinnati,” says Mike LaRosa, CEO of LaRosa’s and Buddy’s son. “’Everybody’s Buddy’ is as much about the people in the community who raised and supported him as it is about Buddy. So,

in many ways, this tells a Cincinnati story, too. So, we are ecstatic that we can celebrate his 80th birthday with those who have meant so much to Buddy and our family.” Buddy LaRosa celebrates his 80th birthday on August 25th. Each night, he’ll join the cast onstage for a “Happy Birthday” finale number. Proceeds from the event will benefit Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. The idea for the musical started over a decade ago when Buddy LaRosa’s cousin and business associate, Harry Panaro, brought the idea to Dick Ruehrwein, after enjoying another one of Ruehrwein’s musical pro-

ductions. Ruehrwein, who has written 15 plays, all of which have been produced, met again with LaRosa and Panaro nearly two years ago to talk seriously about moving forward with the musical. “From the beginning, it was important to me that the proceeds be donated to Cincinnati’s Children’s Hospital,” said Buddy LaRosa who credits Children’s Hospital with saving the life of his daughter, Denise. “The production of the musical was about doing something that would inspire and engage the local community. It is a celebration of the community that has guided and supported me throughout my life.”

Parents of special-needs kids get relief Gannett News Service A new Monfort Heights center aims to give parents a break from the daily demands of caring for special-needs children and teens. And while parents are getting a break, their children can get extra help learning how to better manage their symptoms. RHC’s Children’s Respite Support Center recently celebrated its grand opening. The center offers therapeutic services for children diagnosed with both developmental disorders, such as autism or Down syndrome, and mental illness. Wyatt Dunham, 10, has been diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, ADHD and schizoaffective disorder, a psychiatric disorder that includes mood swings, delusions and hallucinations. “Before he was 2, I knew he would have struggles,” said his mother, Tammy

Dunham of Elmwood Place. Wyatt has been hospitalized several times, both for trying to hurt himself and for trying to hurt others, Dunham said. “He has a lot of anger issues. That’s how he displays depression,” she said. He doesn’t handle frustration well, and he’s not good with surprises. “He needs to be on a very rigid schedule. He has to have a very rigid structure to his day,” Dunham said. Small things – waiting longer in line at the supermarket than expected, or a last-minute trip to the store – can trigger a meltdown. The respite center opened in January, and Wyatt’s been there two weekends a month. For Dunham, it means being able to go to the store and run errands without worrying about how Wyatt will react. And Wyatt gets to spend time learning how to better deal with his anger,

both in group sessions and one-on-one meetings with therapists. The Dunhams, and other families like them, never know what they’ll face from one day to the next. Children and teens affected by mental illness struggle with behavioral and mood changes on a regular basis. “These kids cycle a lot, and they’re in and out of the hospital,” said Susan Pahner, RHC’s vice president of program services. “A big goal of this program is to stabilize placement for them, and keep them from going in and out of the hospital.” Before clients begin services at the center, staff conduct in-depth assessments to identify what kinds of services youth and their families need most. For some kids, it’s anger management. For others, it might be learning to bathe on their own or make a snack by themselves.

80% of all auto manufacturers refinish with water based paints

RHC operates group homes and supported housing for people affected by developmental disorders and mental illness in Hamilton and Butler counties. The respite center can house five children or teens for a weekend. Eventually, staff hope to expand the program to seven days a week. The center was set up in cooperation with Hamilton Choices, which contracts with Hamilton County to coordinate care for children and teens with mental health problems. Other funding comes from private grants and scholarships, including a $150,000 startup grant from the Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati, and Medicaid. For the Dunhams, Wyatt’s time at the center means a little more breathing room for the adults – and a lot fewer meltdowns for Wyatt, who’s learning to get along with other kids much better, Dunham said. “It’s helping him stay out of the hospital,” she said. “It’s just been a big help for us.”


House lighting

Judy Konerman, 54, switches on her solar bird bath in backyard. Konerman purchased her house from Cheviot for $74,000 in May 2008. When she moved in, there was nothing in the backyard but dirt and grass. She has since made improvements, which is just what city leaders had hoped for. The city's program allowed the city to buy foreclosed-upon houses for $1, rehabilitate them, then sell them for market value. Konerman's was the first the city purchased. U.S. Rep. Steve Driehaus (D–1st District), a member of the House Committee on Financial Services, spoke in front of Konerman's home about the recently-passed Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Konerman, 54, a single mother who said she received no child support, was previously living in a mobile home park in Harrison. Community leaders say the program has benefited, not only the individual home buyers, but also the neighborhood. The city had taken out a nointerest, 2-year loan for $20,000.

Deb Cordrey and Gina Torbeck share a drink at the newly opened Cafe Bayley.

Cafe reopens with more choices By Melisa Cole

“We want people to think of Cafe Bayley as another Delhi restaurant,” said the cafe’s manager Deb Cordrey. Cafe Bayley, near Bayley Place on Farrell Court, reopened July 12. The small cafe sits inside the Wellness Community Center and is open to the public not just the residents of Bayley Place. “We are part of the West Side community,” said Kathy Baker, director of Eldermount Adult Day Program. The new cafe features a healthier, more upscale American bistro type menu. The new menu offers more extensive choices. One special menu item is Cordrey’s own recipe she calls Chili 4:4, named after

the biblical passage Matthew 4:4. “The passage says, ‘Man does not live on bread alone,’” Cordrey said. “Our chili is all meat, no beans.” Chili 4:4 is a hearty, meaty recipe that differs from traditional Texas style chili. Cafe Bayley serves the chili by itself or in its walking tacos. The cafe first closed in March. Cordrey signed on as manager in May and has been developing the new menu ever since. “There are still a couple things I might add,” Cordrey said. “I want to see how everything flies. If something isn’t working I will get rid of it.” Cordrey also makes the humus, cookies, muffins, and gravy for french fries and gravy featured on the

menu. “French fries and gravy is a Canadian favorite. I’m originally from Canada so I’m bringing that with me,” Cordrey said. Cordrey eventually plans to make all the bread used in the cafe. Other unique menu items are the 1950s classics – the monte cristo sandwich and wedge salad. Cordrey has brought a new life to the cafe with her revamped menu. “I see an excitement coming here,” Baker said. “I hear a lot of people saying they can’t wait for it to open.” The cafe will now have longer business hours from 10:30 a.m. -2:30 p.m. and serve breakfast all day. Their new menu is budget conscious with most items under $6.

Veteran firefighter promoted By Kurt Backscheider

The Green Township Department of Fire & EMS has filled a vacant lieutenant position with one of its own firefighters. Jeffrey Williams, a fulltime firefighter with the department, was promoted to lieutenant at the board of trustees meeting Monday, July 26. His promotion was effective Saturday, July 31. “I’m very excited,” said Williams, who has been with the department for 19

years. “It was something I worked hard to achieve for a long time. “It’s definitely a dream come true,” he said. Williams fills a lieutenant position that was left open after District Chief Thomas Dietz was promoted from lieutenant to district chief in February. Dietz replaced Assistant Fire Chief James Rutenschroer, who retired last summer. Green Township Fire & EMS Chief Douglas Witsken said the promotion of Williams completes the sec-

ond step in the back-fill process from the retirement of Rutenschroer. Witsken said the department now has one full-time firefighter position open and he hopes to have it filled within the next three months. Witsken said Williams was an excellent candidate to fill the lieutenant position. “Jeff is a 19-year veteran of the department and he has worked very, very hard to prepare for this promotion over the years in his career, not only in his formal training, but he’s

always been one of our most active and hardest working employees,” Witsken said. “He’s always looking to take on projects and always looking to do things to better himself and better the department. We’re very excited to have him as a first-line supervisor.” Williams, an Oak Hills High School graduate, said he first joined the Green Township fire department as a part-time firefighter. Over the years he also served as a part-time firefighter for Delhi Township,

St. Al’s musician wins opera contest By Kurt Backscheider

The church family at St. Aloysius Gonzaga in Bridgetown has a singing star in its ranks. Michael Match, their music director and organist, recently won the Cincinnati Opera’s second annual Opera Idol Competition. “Our church family is very proud of Michael,” said the Rev. Mike Hay, pastor of St. Aloysius. “He is a very talented young man and we are very lucky to have him here as our music minister.” Match, a countertenor who learned he won the contest July 26, said he “breathed a huge sigh of relief” upon hearing the good news. “All six of us (finalists) have been waiting desperately by the phone. So, I’m thrilled to death. It’s been a huge desire for me the past

As the winner, Match received a $3,500 contract with Cincinnati Opera. The singer earned his bachelor’s degree in voice from Youngstown State University and a master’s degree from Indiana University. The 31-year-old is pursuing is doctorate at Indiana

University as well. In the competition, before he sang “L’angue offeso” from Handel’s “Julius Caesar,” Match told himself, “Don’t forget to tell them you’re a countertenor before you start singing.” He possesses a rare, extremely high voice that soars into the stratosphere of the vocal repertoire. His selections by Handel and Meyerbeer at the semifinals held in early July at the Aronoff Center were so polished and his voice type so rare, that the judges remarked he was almost guaranteed a career in opera. Match started out as a tenor, but ironically struggled to hit the high notes. A Youngstown professor noticed he had a great falsetto and gave him a recording by acclaimed countertenor David Daniels. “I thought, ‘I think I can do this,’” Match said.

“I discovered I had a much bigger range and possibility, and that’s where I should be singing.” He said he had a large cheering section in the audience of nearly 400 people at the Aronoff Center for the July 8 semifinals – his choir from St. Aloysius. “It was a familial atmosphere, and we were all rooting for each other backstage,” he said. The organist hopes he will be given a spot in the Opera Chorus next season, but for now he said, “I’m still sort of floating in a haze.” Hay said the parishioners at St. Aloysius hope Match enjoys his new fame and they are rooting for him all the way. He said in addition to being tremendously talented, Match is a joy to work

Hay said St. Aloysius has one of the biggest choirs in the area, more than 35 members, and it’s all due to Match. “When I say we are very lucky to have him, I truly mean it,” Hay said. An initial field of 60 hopefuls turned out in early

June to audition for the Opera Idol Competition, and only 10 semifinalists were asked to perform before a panel of three judges. Videos of six finalists were posted online for public voting to choose the winner and more than 4,500 people cast votes. Gannett News Service contributed to this story

Wet basement needs professional look Wet weather may bring basement dampness or leaks. The cause may be poor drainage, poorly maintained gutters and downspouts not draining properly or draining into damaged underground piping. Excessive moisture may lead to mold, impairing the indoor air quality of the home. Water can enter the basement at the basement floor, through cracks in the walls or plumbing leaks. Extreme signs of water seepage in the foundation wall located near exterior underground downspout piping are probably an indication the underground piping is not functional. Excessive ground water along the foundation may also cause structural foundation problems. Strange musty odors in the basement can be from mold or bacteria. Testing for mold should be completed by certified indoor air quality inspector, not by a waterproofing contractor. Some of the older types of underground piping are vitrified clay tile or asphalt impregnated paper pipe. These types of piping have a limited life. The corrugated plastic pipe may crush, blocking water flow. Types of repairs may include regrading the yard, redirecting downspouts, replacing underground downspout piping, installing an interior under-slab perimeter drain with a

sump pump or draining to a lower yard. Excavating and installing an exterior waterproofing system may also be effective. Bulk water typically does not leak through a Michael concrete foundation Montgomery wall, unless there is a Community crack. Concrete founwalls with Press guest dation cracks may only columnist require an injection with structural or polyurethane epoxy. This is usually inexpensive and completed from the interior of the basement (about $350 per crack). The installation of an interior and exterior waterproofing system may be excessive, unnecessary and expensive (about $20,000). If these cracks are due to moisture intrusion near steel reinforcing rods inside the foundation walls, the steel rods may rust, expanding the steel, causing foundation cracks with reddish-brown rust stains emanating below the crack. This type of crack should be fully injected with structural epoxy. It is more common that hollow concrete block foundation walls leak. The dampness builds up inside the hollow concrete blocks, which manifests as

stains and mold. The exterior waterproofing system is the best method of repair, but is more costly. Some of the waterproofing contractors tell homeowners that the exterior system removes the pressure against the foundation wall. This may reduce the pressure, but does not eliminate it. A contractor installing a fiberglass reinforced panel over a crack will direct the water to an under-slab drain, but they hide the condition of the foundation wall behind the crack and susceptible to mold growth behind the panel. Mold growth is also susceptible behind the panels. If basement leaks are seen coming up through the basement slab or along the joint between the basement slab and foundation wall, an interior under-slab drain line may be the best solution. Storm water under the basement slab may cause the basement slab to heave. We suggest calling a professional engineer to diagnose the source of the leaks and suggest methods or options for repair. A free estimate from a contractor may be very expensive. Michael Montgomery, who lives in Monfort Heights, of Buyers Protection Group is a licensed engineer in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.

Robbery victim beaten, left comatose Gannett News Service Two men beat a 61-yearold man severely during a robbery July 22, and he remained in a coma at University Hospital, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office. Robert M. Krull, 3716 Quante Ave., Cleves, is held on $300,000 bond at the Hamilton County jail on charges of aggravated robbery and felonious assault. Deputies say he and his roommate attacked William R. Smith while robbing him about 4:40 a.m. July 22 at a residence on Ohio 128. The second suspect, Shawn M. Gould, 31, of the same Cleves address, remains at large, sheriff’s officials said July 29.

Gould Krull Krull appeared with his hands cuffed behind his back Thursday in Hamilton County Municipal Court. His lawyer offered no explanation of the case but did request Judge Richard Bernat set a low bond. The lawyer, Richard Gabelman, said Krull lives on the county’s west side with his aunt and has a 2year-old son who resides in the area. Prosecutors argued for a high bond because of the

extent of the victim’s injuries. Krull is on probation from a previous breakingand-entering conviction, they said. The case is scheduled to go to a Hamilton County grand jury for possible indictment Aug. 9. Krull’s lawyer declined comment after court. One of Smith’s neighbors said he was found unconscious inside his garage nearly three hours after the attack, when one of Smith’s brothers made his daily visit to check on him and drop off a cup of coffee. “I think he knew some of them,” said the neighbor, John Breeding, 72, who has known Smith and his brothers for 30 years. “That’s

why they beat him so bad. I believe they thought he was dead when they left him there. They beat him with a shovel and kicked and punched him.” Deputies found Smith lying in a pool of blood. The men stole two rail buggies – one blue, one yellow – and a 1997 Geo Metro, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office. The Geo has been recovered by police. Smith has been showing signs of progress. Earlier this week, he opened his eyes while one of his brothers visited him at the hospital, Breeding said. Anyone with information relating to this crime and/or the location of Shawn M. Gould is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 513-825-1500 or Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040.

Emily McKinney, front with Kathy Schmidt’s sister Suzanne Ellis, is the beneficiary for this year’s Always Our Sunshine walk-a-thon. In back are her mother Barbie with Kathy’s husband, Jim, daughter Jen and sister Mary Whitt.

Walk helping Delhi Middle student By Melisa Cole

Like most 10-year-old girls, Emily McKinney’s favorite thing to do is listen to Justin Bieber. Unlike most 10-year -old girls, McKinney is battling a rare brain tumor. Seven years ago mother and wife, Kathy Schmidt, died of a brain tumor. After her death her family started the organization Always Our Sunshine (AOS). The McKinney and Schmidt families were brought together through a mutual family friend. Now McKinney is the beneficiary for this year’s Always Our Sunshine Walk-a-Thon fundraiser. “We decided we wanted to do something to keep her memory alive,” Kathy’s husband, Jim Schmidt, said. This year marks the fourth annual walk-a-thon taking place on Sunday, Aug. 15, through the streets of Cheviot. McKinney just finished her fifth grade at Delshire Elementary and will be attending Delhi Middle School in the fall. “We were told by a friend that they might know someone locally who needed help,” Schmidt said. “We wanted to help someone from our community.” McKinney received her diagnosis, anaplastic astroblastoma stage 3, in February. Since then she has undergone 32 sessions of radiation and chemotherapy along with experimental treatments. “These people have no idea who I am and they are

reaching out to help. They have wonderful hearts,” said Emily’s mother Barbie McKinney. The walk-a-thon began as a way to carry on Schmidt’s passion for helping children and her love of walking. “She was a huge walker. She would walk three times a day, in the morning, in the afternoon, and at night,” said Kathy’s sister Mary Whitt. Before her death Schmidt worked as a teacher’s assistant at North Fairmont, Carson, Westwood, and Dater Montessori schools. “She always did stuff with kids. She wanted to benefit kids in some way,” Schmidt said. As a teacher’s assistant, Kathy would greet the children each morning. Following her death the school dedicated a plaque in her memory which read “Always Our Sunshine.” “I love the fact that they are keeping her spirit alive,” Barbie McKinney said. Several door prizes are given away during the walk-a-thon including many tickets and gift certificates for local businesses and attractions. Those interested in participating can register online www.alwaysoursunshine.or g or in person before the walk. “Anyone can register early online. If they wait until the day of the walk there is no guarantee for a T-shirt,” Schmidt said. Last year the walk had more than 200 participants and raised more than $6,000.

SCHOOLS XU student receives Jesuit grant August 4, 2010




Editor Marc Emral | | 853-6264

Mona Breitbeil of Western Hills has received the first Jesuit Heritage Grant Award from Xavier University. The purpose of the grant is to further the recognition of Jesuit Identity in the College and promote the educational outcome that graduates of Xavier are men and women for others standing for justice and

peace. She received $500 toward the purchase of program textbooks from the Xavier Bookstore. Breitbeil, a graduate student in community counseling, submitted a 500-word essay discussing the influence of the Jesuit Heritage on her chosen career of professional counseling. It was evaluated by department faculty and members

of Xavier’s Center for Mission and Identity. Graduate counseling students of any faith tradition currently enrolled in Practicum I were eligible to apply. Breitbeil’s application demonstrated animation and integration of the gifts of the Ignatian Heritage, namely: mission (including spirituality); reflection;

discernment; solidarity and kinship; and service rooted in love and justice into her academic and clinical work at Xavier University. “As I move into the field of counseling,” Breitbeil said, “I am filled with a sense of awe at the circle of life and the interconnectedness of all beings. It seems to be that we are here for no other pur-



pose than to love and encourage one another. For that reason, I am deeply grateful to be a part of the Jesuit Heritage of service to others and look forward to doing my part to build a more just and humane world.” For details on Jesuit education and the Ignatian tradition, go to

West Side prep golf ready to tee off By Jake Meyer

In 2009, the West Side boasted some of the best golf teams in the city, with Taylor winning the Cincinnati Hills League, Elder finishing second in the Greater Catholic League, and Seton posting a solid season in the Girls’ Greater Catholic League. In 2010, those teams look to be geared up for another successful season. Taylor loses just one contributing golfer from last year’s squad and returns CHL player of the year Brad Rapking, who averaged 38.9 strokes per nine holes last year, tops in the CHL. In addition to Rapking, Taylor also returns junior Matt Nickoson, who ranked second behind Rapking in scoring average. Taylor also returns juniors Kaleb Sisson and Dylan Lee, both of whom ranked in the top 25 in the CHL last season. Taylor coach Russell Heath has set lofty goals for this year’s team. “I hope they go to state this year,” Heath said. “They have the ability and the manpower to make it there if they hold themselves to task.” Heath’s squad has faces tough in-conference opponents in Wyoming and Indian Hill. “I’m just hoping and praying for the best performance these young men have in them this year,” Heath said. For Elder, last year’s second-place finish behind Moeller is just the beginning, as the Panthers return their top two scorers from last season in junior Daniel Schwarz and senior Michael Schwarz. “We have high expectations,” Elder coach Mike Trimpe said. “We have everyone back and a good record last year. It’s a good group of guys who are hard working and we have good depth. We have five or six players who average in the mid 30s. That’s a lot.” Trimpe’s team also feature’s senior Kevin Haas and

BRIEFLY First glance at fall sports

Baseball commitments

Several La Salle High school baseball players recently committed to play for The College of Mount St. Joseph next season. La Salle High School’s Aaron Sparks, Michael Leytze and Alec Schmidt and Taylor High School’s Matt Lakampwill play baseball for the Mount and will start classes this fall.

Brad Rapking of Taylor High School got a good drive from the eighth tee during the Division II Cincinnati boys' sectional golf tournament at Sharon Woods Golf Course in October 2009. sophomore Brennen Walsh, both of whom averaged 40 strokes per nine holes and were top-ten golfers in the GCL last season. Competition will still be fierce for Elder in the GCL, as Moeller, St. Xavier and LaSalle always feature strong teams. Next door to Elder, Seton High School returns a solid core of golfers from last year’s team, which finished

14-5 overall and was 9-5 in GGCL play. Junior Molly Arnold leads the way for Seton, averaging 45 strokes last season. Joining Arnold are sophomore Andrea Toth and junior Sarah Banfill. “We have three good core players and a couple who could develop into good players,” Seton coach Lindsey Thiessen said. “We could be really good or really bad depending on how they develop.” “I’m really excited because we have the potential for four or five good golfers,” Thiessen said. Competing against Seton in the GGCL is Mother of Mercy High School, which is hoping for a rebound year following last year’s 5-12

mark. “We were really bad last year, so we’re looking to improve and find more consistency this year,” Mercy coach Kathy Dinkelacker said. “We have no place to go but up.” Mercy returns a pair of seniors in Emma Jones and Lauren Pflum, both of whom ranked in the top 60 in the GGCL standings. “They’ve worked hard this summer and should see a definite improvement,” Dinkelacker said. Likewise, both Oak Hills High School girls’ and boys’ teams are in rebuilding years. The Oak Hills’ boys graduated seven seniors from last year’s team, and first-year coach Aaron Strine is unsure what his squad will look like. “We’re going to be very young,” Strine said. “We only have one returning senior but lots of incoming freshmen who I feel will be very helpful.”

For Elder, last year’s second-place finish behind Moeller is just the beginning, as the Panthers return their top two scorers from last season in junior Daniel Schwarz and senior Michael Schwarz. Strine is hoping those young players can step up and contribute right away, and meet his goals of a 160 team average and a top-five finish by beating top Greater Miami Conference programs Lakota West and Mason. “We’ll be young, but I think we’ll be very competitive,” Strine said. “Look for big things, if not this year then in the future.” Likewise, the Oak Hills girls are entering a rebuilding year, losing three seniors from last year, two of which are now playing collegiately. Sophomore Mackenzie Laumann, who ranked 30th in the GMC with a 45-stroke average, is the Highlanders’

top returning golfer. Joining Laumann are senior captain Lauren Heugel and sophomore Jaime Sanzere. “We’ll improve as the season goes on,” said coach Sandy Fernbacher. “I’ve got three new kids so we’ll get off to a rough start.” Fernbacher credits new junior varsity coach Kike Kehling with working hard to prepare the newcomers and helping to recruit new talent to Oak Hills. “We’d like to get to districts this year, but it will be a stretch,” Fernbacher said. “Mackenzie Laumann might make it individually though.” High school golf season begins the week of Aug. 10.

Elder returns state-qualifying team runners By Tony Meale

Elder High School cross country coach Steve Spencer has a problem. But it’s a good one. “For a lot of the kids,” he said, “I have to keep them from training too much.” After finishing 10th last year at the Division I State Cross Country Championships, the Panthers

appear poised to return to Scioto Downs. They’ll be led by senior Josh Makin, the reigning GCL-South Runner of the Year. “He’ll definitely be one of our top guys,” Spencer said. “I think he should be a top-10 runner certainly at regionals, and he’ll be a good performer at state.” Also returning is Josh Rieskamp, a First-Team All-

Other runners to look out for Several other local runners return to action this fall: • La Salle will be led by seniors Travis Hawes, Ethan Bokeno, Kevin Kluesener and Matt Nie, as well as sophomore Jacob McNamara. • Mother of Mercy will be led by junior Lauren Seibert and sophomores Melina Artmayer and Grace Simpson • Oak Hills will be led by seniors Cody Lacewell and Travis Troxell, junior David Kohlbrand and sophomore Blake Meyer; the girls’ team will be led by senior Emily Wohlfrom and junior Alex

Eilers • Seton will be led by sophomores Shelby Fritsch and Caitlin Lopez, juniors Melissa Schenkel and Anne Pace and senior Teresa Del Prince • St. Xavier, which finished second at state last year, will be led by seniors Jack Butler and Greg Sanders • Taylor will be led by seniors Tanner Lemieux and Justin Rueve, as well as junior Matt Murphy; the girls’ team will be led by sophomore McKenzie Daniel and juniors Tayler Godar and Olivia Hardtke.

League performer. “He’s a different kind of runner than (Makin),” Spencer said. “Makin has good speed. Rieskamp is more of an endurance runner. He should be in the top 15 at regionals.” Rounding out the top three for Elder is senior Corey Zielinski, who has been a few ticks above the 16-minute mark this summer. “He’s a hard worker,” Spencer said. Also contributing will be juniors Jake Clark, whose intensity has impressed Spencer, and Nathan Lauck, a strong runner who missed districts last year due to illness. “I think we’ll have a better team than last year, but

team has a good chance to be one of those four squads. “I think we’re working real hard and have a good attitude,” he said. “We’ve got a lot of guys back, so we have some experience. I think we’re all set.”

The time is now for the La Salle High School cross country team. The Lancers return five of their top seven runners from a team that has advanced to state each of the last two years. They’ll be led by senior Travis Hawes. “He’s got the ability,” Lancer head coach Frank Russo said, “to be a top-five state finalist and could finish as high as second to (Mason senior) Zach Wills.” Hawes finished 12th at the state championships as a freshman and was GCLSouth Runner of the Year as a sophomore. Last season, however, he struggled through injury and illness – and he wasn’t alone. Senior Ethan Bokeno, among others, also missed significant time. “It’s no secret,” Russo said. “The last two years, (the problem) hasn’t been our talent. It’s been our ability to stay healthy.” If the Lancers can avoid injury, Russo said his team has a legitimate shot at a state championship. Along with Hawes, a five-time state-qualifier, and Bokeno, a four time-state qualifier, La Salle returns seniors Kevin Kluesener and Matt Nie, as well as sophomore Jacob McNamara. Juniors Clayton Cardinal, Drew Michel and Marc Nie also figure to be in the mix. “We’ve got great talent in front and great depth in back,” Russo said. “We’re hoping to get some young guys contributing.”

La Salle High School senior Ethan Bokeno is one of the returning runners for the Lancer cross country team this season. La Salle has been arguably the most consistent program in Ohio over the last 15 years, advancing to state all but two years since 1996. From 2000 to 2006, the Lancers won two state titles and had four state runner-up finishes. In 2007, the Lancers failed to qualify for state for the first time since 1998. La Salle returned to Scioto Downs each of the last two years but placed 15th and 16th, respectively; prior to 2008, Russo, who took over in 1983, hadn’t had a state team finish lower than 10th. “We’re trying to work on the intensity and quality of our work ethic,” Russo said.

“We’re trying to get the guys to understand what it takes.” Russo, who has been pleased with his team’s summer workouts thus far, has motivated his runners by recounting tales of former Lancers who won state titles and earned All-America status. “What separated those guys was their work ethic and their intensity,” Russo said.

advocates raised concerns that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) applied abortion restrictions to such plans. Unbelievably, Steve Chabot when faced with Community direct evidence Press guest that the execuorder columnist tive wouldn’t block federal funding for abortions in this instance, Steve Driehaus argued the exact opposite in his column last week-that the executive order is working. If Driehaus’ assertions were accurate, and President Obama’s executive order contained an effective prohibition on taxpayerfunded abortions, there would be no need for HHS to take separate action in order to prevent abortions being funded with tax dollars under these insurance plans. Moreover, had Steve Driehaus and Bart Stupak kept their promise not to vote for health care reform if it provided tax dollars for abortions, there would be no need for this discussion at all. Unfortunately, that didn’t occur. As a result, we are faced with health care reform that lacks an effective prohibition on taxpayer-funded abortion. And no amount of rhetoric or glossy taxpayer-funded brochures from Steve Driehaus can change that fact. Also, it’s important to remember the other shortcomings in the Democrat’s massive power-grab in health care reform. It hurt seniors by cutting Medicare by more than $500 billion, it created $569 billion in new taxes and it could raise insurance premiums by as much as $2,100 annually on millions of Americans. We deserve better. Steve Chabot, a Republican, is a candidate for U. S. Representative for the 1st District.

Rep. Steve Driehaus has betrayed pro-life values Over the last week, Steve Driehaus used thousands of our tax dollars to send out glossy brochures and authored a guest column in this newspaper in a desperate attempt to convince us that he has not betrayed his prolife values. But actions speak louder than words. Driehaus supported Barack Obama, who’s virtually only appointed pro-choice judges. The very first vote Driehaus cast in Congress was to make Nancy Pelosi Speaker of the House – she has a 0 percent voting record with National Right to Life and 100 percent voting record with Planned Parenthood and NARAL. And the most troubling fact is that National Right to Life only scores Driehaus as voting for prolife issues a shocking 33 percent of the time. Perhaps the biggest betrayal to the pro-life community was when he voted for the health care reform legislation. When Nancy Pelosi said that Congress would have to “pass the health care bill before we actually knew what was in it,” she wasn’t kidding. Unfortunately, the surprises keep coming. At the time, the pro-life community sounded the alarm that the legislation would be used to provide taxpayer-funding for abortions, despite the executive order that President Obama claimed would block such funding. Many in Congress, including Steve Driehaus, scoffed at that notion. Well, now, we find out the prolife community was right. Several states attempted to establish insurance plans that would use federal tax dollars to pay for abortions using a section of the legislation that the non-partisan Congressional Research Service stated the executive order “does not specifically address.” As a result, abortions could be funded with tax dollars through such plans despite the executive order. It was only after pro-life

Tremendous asset

This letter is in response to the article “Greene Lodge Loses Money” on July 21. The headline above the article presents a very negative picture of a very positive situation. Nathanael Greene Lodge is a tremendous asset to the Green Township community, whether it generates a profit or not. The article lists a few community groups who meet at the lodge (Kiwanis, VFW, Exchange Club, Green Township Civic Association). Two more to add to the list are the Shriners and the Citizens Police Academy. The contributions these groups make to the community far outweigh the cost to the township of providing a top-notch facility at a reasonable rate. As stated in the article, the lodge was not built as a profit center … it was built to provide a service to the citizens of the community. The township administrators and the incredible staff of the lodge have done a tremendous job of providing such service. Please give them the credit they deserve.

The pantry is in need of new coolers, freezers, food and van repairs, and now has sustained a financial loss for sign and food expenditures. Although informed by school staff of the effective field drainage, they were advised the morning of the event it was canceled due to the possibility of rain and risk to the field. This action was taken although the fields are to be replaced in August. Despite the fact it rained later in the day, the event could have still been held without the game. I realize Oak Hills has a responsibility to maintain its facilities, but they need to be reminded that it is not owned by the school but by the community who supports it. The pantry plans to re-sched-

ule the fundraiser and it’s my sincere hope the community will strongly support the event. Kathleen E. Stevens Beechtop Drive Green Township

Insightful column

Angie Lipscomb’s guest column “Price Hill is diverse, vibrant” is insightful. She observes, as an “uncommon East Side transplant,” that West Siders “focus too much on how we are neglected, how we are failing, and how we think we don’t have reason to be optimistic.” If this is true, then we owe it to ourselves to understand why. Here’s my theory: The pattern of repetitious settlement within the western hills has created a culture of conformity. Although there is comfort in conformity, as it reinforces belonging and community, it can also make us complacent. And, because we live near and socialize with people we have known for a long time, the past is naturally the focus of conversation, with less thought given to new ideas that will shape our future. But Angie has a new idea worth talking about. “Price Hill is not a defenseless, needy neighborhood that must always look to city hall for help. Beautify your street. Walk and meet your neighbors. Political leaders can not do that for us.” Thanks for reminding us, Angie. And thanks for moving to Price Hill. I hope there’s more where you came from. Jim Grawe Sidney Road Covedale

Bad math

Is it OK that the township loses two hundred thousand dollars a year on the boondoggle Nathanael Greene Lodge? Apparently so, after all, Trustee Tracy Winkler’s daughter runs the lodge. When questions are asked, Judge Winkler, Tracy’s husband, steps in. Now we have a member of the VFW, whose organization meets at the lodge at a discount, telling us that it’s OK the Township looses money. The problem is the VFW member forgot to disclose that his daughter works at the Lodge. With Trustee (Tony) Upton’s son working for the township in the Public Services department whose boss is directly responsible for the lodge’s losses, whose sonin-law also works for the town-

includes those great lightning storms and late summer evenings punctuated by the fireflies glowing in the back yard. Every season has its positive rituals and qualities and every season has its drawbacks. The glorious colors of fall precede the blisters from raking the leaves. Winter’s icy sidewalks are balanced by the warmth of the hearth and the beauty of sparkling snow as seen from a warm house. Spring in Cincinnati means one lovely tree after another popping out in all its glory. It also includes potholes popping out everywhere as well. When I tell people I used to live in California they often ask if or when we might move back there. Even if the cost of living was halfway sane, I still prefer the changes of the seasons of the Midwest to the rather boring

minor changes from season to season in a temperate climate. My answer is, “It’s a nice place to visit but I really prefer to live where people talk about the weather.” Life has its seasons, too. Some may consider a particular age matches only one season. But people can be in an awakening season like spring at retirement as well as graduation, as newlyweds or entering a new career. A figurative summer storm may toss you around but it can bring relief from an emotional drought. We may be just as reluctant to “let go” of certain hurts as the trees are to let go of their leaves. But be assured that letting go is part of the plan before winter. Spring will come again. “To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1 Cinda Gorman, a life and career coach, is coordinator and host of the Western

There is a season for all things Summer means ice cream in my book. Whether you “share the love” or like yours “… made the sincere way,” you can consume all the fat you should get in one day all crammed in to two scoops. What a treat. What are some of the other edible joys of summer? Sweet corn – picked early in the day, purchased from a fresh vegetable stand, grilled or boiled and slathered with butter and salt. Mm-m-m – if that isn’t good for you! If you aren’t drooling yet, think about fresh tomatoes picked from the vine, cucumbers that seem to grow to full length overnight, and berries of all kinds. As a child, my family bottled our own homemade root beer. The glass bottles we hoarded were carefully washed and my dad mixed up a big batch that started with Hires Root Beer extract. The recipe included sugar and yeast

ship, conveys a policy of friends and family need only apply. If you don’t believe it, ask the head of the republican party, Alex Triantafilou, he got his wife a job with the township. Add the Nathanael Greene Lodge losses to the $2.7 million to Legacy Place white elephant and pretty soon we are talking real money. These losses also fall squarely on administrators shoulders who was recently rated, by trustees Upton and Winkler, as having very good financial management abilities. Apparently the administrator gets high marks for loosing money. I guess two plus two does equal five. Gary Dressler Sidney Road

RTL responds to Driehaus

Congressman (Steve) Driehaus claims that Obama’s executive order prohibits tax-funded abortion in the federal health care bill. This is based on the Department of Health and Human Services’ statement after abortion funding was discovered in pre-existing condition insurance plans in Pennsylvania, New Mexico and Maryland. The Congressional Research Office has issued a report confirming that limits on taxpayer funding of abortions “would not appear to apply specifically to the funds made available for high-risk pools” and that the executive order “does not specifically address high-risk pools and the funds provided” in this bill. The health care bill also includes the Mikulski amendment that defines abortion as preventative care, further ensuring that insurance plans in the federal exchange will pay for them. It pays for abortions under the Indian Health Service program. The bill legislates $7 billion for the 1,250 federally funded Community Health Centers, not covered by Hyde Amendment abortion funding restrictions. Though some claim CHCs don’t offer abortion services, the Reproductive Health Access Project website gives how-to instructions. Finally, the bill has no conscience protections for health care workers and facilities that do not want to participate in abortions or other immoral practices – a fundamental human right. Pro-abortion bill … pro-abortion vote. Paula Westwood Executive Director Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati

Cars take over Fernbank Park It might have been a hot and humid Sunday, but car lovers surely didn’t notice as classic cars rolled into Fernbank Park for the annual Rollin’ on the River car show. The show was hosted by Riverview-Delhi Hills Kiwanis Club in partnership with the Hamilton County Park District. This year’s was one of the biggest – if not the biggest – in the show’s 21 years. More than 80 awards were presented at the end of the day to cars off all types, including a 1922 Ford Model T,

Here are ten rules for being human Father Lou is off this week. The Community Press is running a column that was orginally published Jan. 3, 2007.

1. You will receive a body. You may like it or dislike it, but it’s yours for life. Make friends with it, respect it, and listen to it. Your body always tells you many truths about yourself. 2. There are no mistakes, only lessons. You are made to grow, and growth is a process of trial and error, learning, and moving on. The pains of past failures are even more a teacher than the joys of gains and successes. Live and learn! 3. A lesson will be repeated until it is learned. Realize that

you cannot keep performing the same behavior and expect different results. Who, or whatever, hurts you and goes against your true growth, let go of and move on. Wise up! 4. The most important things in life are loving relationships. Your Creator’s initial advice was, “It is not good to be alone.” That was not advice against enjoying solitude but a warning about being unconnected and emotionally alone. Being in orbit around your own ego makes a mighty small world and a selfish person. Care about others! Learn to love! 5. Other people can serve as mirrors. The significant traits you like or despise about another per-

son frequently reflect something unconscious you like or despise about yourself - but which you find it hard to admit. Know thyself! 6. Whether it’s a place or a time of life, “there” is not always better than “here.” Too often the best seems to be happening “there.” But if you get “there” it then becomes a “here” and you will likely yearn for another “there” that seems better than “here.” Don’t always be living looking at a “there.” Always appreciate the “here,” the “now!” 7. Every human person has many aspects: body, soul, mind and heart. Leaving any part of yourself undeveloped produces a lop-sided and unfulfilled

person. To the extent that you develop all the parts of your humanness makes your life either a work of art or a blurred picture. Become more whole! 8. The most wonderful part of you lies deep within. It’s called “soul,” or “core,” or “true self.” It starts talking to you the loudest in the second half of your life. If you listen, it will impart wisdom, truths, and exquisite understanding you’ve never had before. If you don’t listen, you’ll miss the meaning of your life. Don’t be afraid to reflect! To listen! 9. You create your own climate. That’s because of the power of the thoughts you entertain, the attitudes you keep, the choices you make. Gripe and think nega-

tively and your life will always Father Lou be overcast and Guntzelman dark. Appreciate, and you’ll Perspectives start noticing the many good things you have. You get the emotional climate you develop. Why rain on yourself? 10. There are many “important” things in this life, and there are a few things that are really “essential.” Never, never exchange the essential for the important. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@ or P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242.

Be careful before purchasing appliance warranty I’m seeing more and more companies these days offering warranties that claim to cover all your home appliances. But, is it a good idea to sign up, or are you better off saving your money and just paying for repairs as needed? It’s not unusual to find a whole house appliance warranty offered by the seller when you looking to buy an existing house. Now some national firms, and even some local appliance repair shops, have begun offering this to all. Sherri Burton of Amelia received an ad from a national company for such a warranty for about $40 a

m o n t h and said it looked like a great deal. “ I f something w e n t r o n g Howard Ain w you were Hey Howard! to contact them and you got a claim number. I guess they subcontract. They would come out here. I would pay a $75 deductible,” said Burton. Soon after signing up she encountered a problem with her stove and called, but was very surprised at the response she received. “Bottom line, they didn’t

want to fix it. They just wanted to replace a knob and then, if something else went wrong, they’d have to come back here and fix it,” she said. Burton had to pay the $75 deductible but says she just went out and bought a new stove. Next, Burton’s furnace started making a lot of noise so she again called the warranty company. A repairman came out but, “He said as long as the furnace was running he can’t do anything. It has to not be running,” she said. The furnace then started overheating so she called again. “He turned the furnace

on and said, ‘As long as the furnace is running there’s nothing I can do.’ I said, ‘Would you like a Coke because after it kicks on the second or third time it’s going to overheat?’ Well, it did,” said Burton. Burton was then told the repairman couldn’t fix the furnace because he couldn’t get parts since it was too old. But now, in the warm summer weather, the air conditioner is also overheating so she can’t get her house cool. “I thought it was going to be a great company for $40 a month, $75 deductible,” said Burton. “It’s about saving me money, but appar-

ently it’s about making them money.” The company wouldn’t respond to my phone calls so I had Burton file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. The company has responded to complaints filed with the bureau. After Burton filed her complaint, the warranty company sent out another repairman to check the furnace. He found the problem was with the blower motor and it had to be replaced. Burton had to pay $500, but the new motor solved the problem. Now Burton is trying to get back that $500 from the warranty compa-

ny. The Better Business Bureau says it’s received about 700 complaints about this company from people who say the firm would not pay for needed repairs. In response, the company says consumers need to read the contract thoroughly and fully understand exactly what’s included and what’s excluded. Bottom line, you need to be very careful before agreeing to any of these warranties. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

Rub shoulders with old-fashioned pork barbeque Our little flock of chickens has one less member today. And it’s my fault. L a s t Rita night, I Heikenfeld forgot to Rita’s kitchen lock the chickens in their pen. This morning, when I went out to feed them, I saw a trail of white feathers leading down to the river bank. Not a good sign – I immediately thought “raccoons.” And that’s how our only white feathered hen, “Whitey,” as the kids called her, met her untimely demise. So you can understand when I say I just don’t feel like sharing any recipes today for, you guessed it: chicken.

Easy pork shoulder for barbeque

There’s an old-fashioned type of meat that folks are starting to rediscover. It’s fresh pork shoulder (and when it’s smoked it’s sometimes called cottage ham or smoked pork butt).


Combine and set aside while making dressing: 6-8 cups shredded cabbage or cole slaw mix 2 carrots, sliced thin or shredded 1 bell pepper, chopped 1 cup onion, chopped




Rita picking berries at her elderberry bush.

I use it to make goetta since it has a nice layer of fat which keeps the goetta moist. (See sidebar on Glier’s Goettafest.) I also use it to make barbeque. It’s so delicious that I’ll save some of the roasted pork to serve for supper before I make the barbecue, and serve it with boiled noodles. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Score the fat on top of a boneless pork shoulder, about 5 to 7 pounds. Season with salt and pepper and place, fat side up, in a Dutch oven or roasting pan with about a cup of water. Roast until some of the fat has melted, about an hour.

Rita clips the blooms off fresh basil to keep the plant focused on its leaves. Remove pan and reduce temperature to 350 degrees. Tightly cover pan with foil or a lid. Cook about three to four hours more, or until meat is tender enough to shred with forks. When cool enough to handle, remove fat if you want and shred meat into bite size pieces. This freezes well. To serve, stir in favorite barbecue sauce to taste, and heat until hot throughout.

Rita’s do-ahead marinated slaw

This is delicious with the barbecue, and a bit different than the norm.

Bring to a boil, then simmer, uncovered, 10-15 minutes or so, until slightly thickened: 1 cup sugar 1 cup cider vinegar 1 ⁄2 cup water 2 teaspoons mustard seed (optional but good) or 1 ⁄2 teaspoon celery seed (also optional) Pour dressing over cabbage mixture. Cover and refrigerate four hours or overnight. Stir before serving.

Tips from Rita’s garden

Harvesting basil: Be sure and snip the flower heads that are forming on basil. Otherwise, energy will go into the flowers and seeds, and leaf production will suffer. The flowers of all culinary herbs are edible. (I do

Look for the return of the popular Goetta Toss and the Goetta Slide games. Proceeds from the games will go to the Covington charity, Welcome House. Also be sure to check out for menu and entertainment listings. let one plant go to seed for next year’s crop). Roasted whole plum tomatoes: These make a delicious sauce for pasta. You can also freeze them up to six months. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Toss tomatoes with a bit of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Lay in single layer on rimmed baking sheets. If you have some fresh thyme, tuck several sprigs in between the tomatoes. Bake until they burst, about 45 to 60 minutes, rotating pans halfway through. Let cool, then coarsely chop.

Among the aquatic wonders are Polka-dot batfish, Spotted burrfish, Spotfin porcupinefish and antenna burrfish. The new additions enhance the already bizarre nature of the gallery. The batfish, for instance, crawls on the bottom of the tank with modified fins that look like feet. The Spot-fin porcupinefish can blow up like a balloon and has spines. The spotted burrfish and the Antenna burrfish are almost alien in appearance. All would be found naturally in the coral reefs of the Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico and tropical waters of

Be Compassionate “Whoever in trouble and sorrow needs your help, give it to him. Whoever in anxiety or fear needs your friendship, give it to him. It isn’t important whether you approve of his conduct. It isn‘t important what his creed or nationality may be.”- E. N. West We all know what it means to have someone by our side and say,“I understand.” To understand is to have compassion. It is not to condemn, but to reach out in concern and love. Compassion is a very special manifestation of love; it is a form of love that springs from the deepest recesses of the heart. People who can feel compassion are fortunate because it gives them a sense of being needed and useful in a world which hopefully they can change for the better ... Wouldn‘t today be a good day for all of us to be more compassionate?... Marilyn Holt
