Habitat ReStore opens in Cheviot By Kurt Backscheider

A new business is moving into the old Cheviot IGA on North Bend Road. Cincinnati Habitat for Humanity is leasing the space and opening a discount home improvement store called ReStore. The nonprofit housing ministry runs a ReStore in Bond Hill and is expanding with a second store in Cheviot. Marissa Woodly, development director for Cincinnati Habitat for Humanity, said ReStore accepts donations of new and used building supplies and appliances, and sells them to the public at a discounted rate. She said the store offers products like refrigerators, ranges, washers, dryers, dishwashers, furniture, lighting, cabinets, windows, doors and more. “All of the proceeds are used to fund the home building ministry of Habitat for Humanity,” she said. Woodly said most items are priced at 40 percent to 70 percent below new retail prices,


Cincinnati Habitat for Humanity is opening a home improvement discount store, called ReStore, in the former Cheviot IGA space on North Bend Road. The store will be open for business sometime in November. and all the merchandise is in good condition. “You can really depend on quality products,” she said.

The 16,000-square-foot Cheviot ReStore, at 3970 North Bend Road, is scheduled to open sometime in November, she said. Cincinnati Habitat chose to open its new store on the West Side because it has a dense population and is easily accessible to donors and shoppers, she said. “We love the West Side. It’s a great location,” Woodly said. “We really wanted to support economic development, specifically business development, in Cheviot.” Caroline Statkus, Cheviot’s economic development director, said the building is one of the larger commercial sites in Cheviot and city officials are looking forward to it becoming active again. She said she’s visited the ReStore in Bond Hill and is very impressed with the way Cincinnati Habitat operates it. “I think they are a great match for Cheviot,” Statkus said. “We’re happy the site is going to be developed. It’s the first of many good things happening in the city.” For more about your community, visit

Teen continues terrifying tradition By Kurt Backscheider

Ryan Thierauf has come a long way in eight years. What started as a simple haunted house in his mother’s garage on Halloween, has grown into a full-scale, intricately detailed, professional-level haunted house that is open for five nights and encompasses both the front and back yards. “This is going to be a lifelong career,” said Thierauf, a 16-yearold junior at the School for Creative and Performing Arts. The teen has been creating haunted houses at his mother’s home in Green Township since he was 8 years old, and said this year’s haunt is his biggest and best yet. Billed as Scream Acres Court, it will be open to the public from 710 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21; Saturday, Oct. 22; Friday, Oct. 28; Saturday, Oct. 29 and Monday, Oct. 31. The home is at 5603 Green Acres Court. Thierauf said he started planning this year’s haunted house in January and started building it at the beginning of summer. He estimates he spends about 40 hours a week making the haunt as terrifying as possible. “I enjoy seeing people run out scared,” he said, noting that roughly 600 people went through last year’s haunted house. “There is also a lot of satisfaction when people tell me how much they are impressed by it.” A lighting design student, he said his goal is to one day open a professional haunted house for which he can charge admission. Through the years he’s learned how to make his own latex masks, create more detailed makeup and this year he figured out

Taylor students spirited for homecoming By Kurt Backscheider

1962 reunion

Students at Taylor High School are getting pumped up for the annual homecoming festivities. “The kids are always excited about homecoming,” said Taylor Principal Tom Bailey. Taylor will celebrate its homecoming this year with a football game against Indian Hill at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30, and a student dance at 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, at the high school. Bailey said the week of homecoming is always a spirit week at the high school, and festivities kicked off with a community bonfire on Sunday, Sept. 25. “It’s a busy, busy, busy week,” he said. He said Wednesday, Sept. 28, features a district wide pep rally at the site of the new pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade school in Cleves. “It will be the first time we are gathering all 2,000

The Taylor High School Class of 1961 will be celebrating its 50th class reunion on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1. Almost half of the graduating class of 92 will be visiting the Three Rivers area these two days to reunite with classmates and old friends. On Sept. 30 the reunion kicks off with a tailgate party at the American Legion (sponsored by the alumni association) followed by the homecoming parade through Cleves and ending at Taylor High School football field to take in the homecoming game versus Indian Hill. Twenty-five of the class of 1961 graduates will be riding in the parade in a long line of students in the district at the same place at the same time,” he said. Taylor students will also take place in a Pride Walk on Wednesday. Bailey said the annual walk through the neighborhood around the high school raises money for the PTA. Before the football game Friday night, members of

antique cars, most of which are convertibles. The lead car, a 1916 convertible Model T Ford, will have aboard the class of 1961 class president Rock Adams. The following day, Oct. 1, the class will tour their old high school (built in 1926) for the last time as a new high school is set to be built and open in 2013. After the tour the class assembles at The Meadows where four of their high school teachers will be in attendance to share the food and reminiscing that will take place. The day will wind down with a re-gathering at the American Legion for final farewells. the Three Rivers community are invited to the Homecoming Parade, starting at 5:30 p.m., at the site of the new school at Cooper Road and North Miami Avenue. Motorists will want to avoid Miami Avenue between 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. “Our parade is going to be bigger and better than

ever before,” Bailey said. “We are going to have a lot more entries than last year, including a collection of antique cars and class floats. Each class will build its own float, which is a tradition we are bringing back this year.” He said the parade makes its way down North Miami Avenue and turns left on Harrison Avenue before ending at the high school in North Bend. District residents are welcome to stop by the school before kick-off for a festive celebration complete with booths and games. Bailey said Taylor’s business classes will raise money at the festival to help defray the costs of trips to state and national competitions later this school year. He said homecoming provides students, alumni, parents and community members an opportunity to come together and show their Yellowjacket pride. For more about your community, visit

Oak Hills students host German guests

Choirs join in St. Martin’s Choral Fest

By Kurt Backscheider

A musical celebration of the past, present and future will bring together musicians and choirs from six West Side parishes. A Choral Fest will take place at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 9, at St. Martin of Tours parish, 3720 St. Martin’s Place, Cheviot. The program is being put together by St. Martin’s Music Director Angela Birkhead-Flight who says, “the music ranges from quite old to contemporary.” Musicians on organ, trumpet, violin, keyboard and guitar will accompany 100 singers from the choirs of the six neighboring Catholic churches. Participating parishes are: • St. Martin of Tours, • St. Aloysius Gonzaga, Bridgetown, • St. Bernard, Taylor Creek, • St. Catharine of Siena, Westwood, • St. Jude the Apostle, Bridgetown, and • Our Lady of Lourdes, Westwood. “It’s been fun putting this

Oak Hills High School junior Julia Lierman said she’s learned a great deal about German culture from her Bavarian house guest. “I ask him so many random questions,” she said. “It’s been cool to find out what life is like in Germany.” Lierman, a 16-year-old who lives in Green Township, is in her third year of German at Oak Hills and participates in the student exchange program the high school shares with Gymnasium Dingolfing, its partner school in Dingolfing, Germany. She and her family have been hosting 16-year-old Stefan Sachsenhauser, who lives outside the small Bavarian town of Dingolfing. “I have a lot of friends who have been here as part of the exchange,” Sachsenhauser said. “I wanted to do it because I thought it would be a new experience.” Mary Rose Lierman, Julia’s mother and a special education teacher at Oak Hills, said opening their home to a German student has been wonderful. “We were so excited to meet Stefan and we wanted to make sure he felt at home,” she said. “He’s been a great guest, and he’s very open to learning about our culture and

willing to share his. It’s been a beautiful experience and it makes the world a little bit smaller." For 26 years, Oak Hills students who take German as their foreign language have played host to students from Dingolfing. The German students come here for three weeks in the fall and the American students travel there in the summer. Rogar Schneider, a German teacher at Oak Hills who helps coordinate the program, said the exchange gives the students a once-ina-lifetime experience to travel abroad and immerse themselves in another culture. “I think it shows the students there is a world beyond Western Hills, and for the Germans there is a world beyond Bavaria,” he said. Oak Hills German teacher Anja Hoehn said the program offers real life experience that can’t be learned by reading a book. “It broadens your horizons,” she said. “You also learn more about your own culture when you compare it to others.” Schneider said the program was started by former Oak Hills German teacher Charles Kowzan and former Gymnasium Dingolfing English teacher Erich Wasserbauer, who were paired through the German American Partnership Pro-


Thirty students from a high school in Dingolfing, Germany, have been staying with host students at Oak Hills High School as part of the German department’s student exchange program with a high school in Dingolfing, Germany. Pictured, from left, front row, are Oak Hills German teacher Kristen Matthews, Oak Hills special education teacher Mary Rose Lierman, Dingolfing student Stefan Sachsenhauser and Oak Hills junior Julia Lierman; back row, Oak Hills German teacher Anja Hoehn, Dingolfing English teachers Thomas Dettenkofer and Susanne Beer, Oak Hills German teacher Rogar Schneider and Bridgetown Middle School eighth-grader Michael Lierman. gram, a nonprofit high school exchange program sponsored by the German Foreign Office and the U.S. State Department. Schneider said more than 1,000 Oak Hills and Gymnasium Dingolfing students have taken part in the exchange program since 1985. In addition to staying with a host family and attending school, the students also visit historical sites and places of interest in both countries. Susanne Beer, an English teacher at Gymnasium Dingolfing, who helps coordinate the German side of the program, said the 30 students who came this year have visited Niagara Falls; Toronto, Canada; the Newport Aquarium; Cincinnati City Hall; the Cincinnati Museum Center and the University of Cincinnati. Many of the host families have also taken their

guests to Kings Island, she said. “It’s been wonderful. This program is really great,” Beer said. “The hospitality is always fantastic.” Sachsenhauser said he looks forward to returning the hospitality in June when Julia Lierman visits him. Lierman said she can’t wait for summer to get here. “Stefan brought a lot of pictures to show us, and Bavaria is so pretty,” she said. “Everyone I know who’s gone on the trip has really enjoyed it.”

together because the other music directors are so different from one another. I’ve learned a lot from them,” says Birkhead-Flight. A new composition has been commissioned for the event. There will also be a couple of gospel selections, one contemporary Christian piece, and counter-tenor Michael Match, winner of the 2010 Cincinnati Opera Idol competition (and music director at St. Aloysius) will sing the “Ave Maria.” A duet will be performed by teenagers Mitchell Miller on organ and Rachel Flight on violin. The program is the latest event scheduled to celebrate St. Martin’s 100th anniversary. The invitation to participate was extended to neighboring parishes “because three of the parishes began as one parish,” explains BirkheadFlight. The Choral Fest is expected to last one hour and will be followed by a reception in the church undercroft.

Our Lady of Victory parish will take the community across the globe for An Evening in Sudan Wednesday, Sept. 21. The 7 p.m. program at the church, 810 Neeb Road in Delhi Township, will include slides and reports from members of the 2011 medical mission trip to South Sudan the parish sponsors. The evening also will include music and prayer as the team prepares for another trip to the poor African country and a return trip to Honduras. Retired physician Richard Fry, a Delhi Township resident and OLV member, has been making the treks, taking medical supplies to South Sudan since 2007. The trips to Honduras, taking hygiene items, began in 2004. “On my first trip, which was to Honduras, we found a village that badly needed our help and have since partnered with them,” Fry said. “We started the outreach

The two will relate their travels, their mission and the needs that continue at the Sept. 21 program. “When we go to Honduras, it takes the parish volunteers hours and hours to pack up the supplies,” Fry said. “But for our trips to Sudan, what we really need is money. We take only medical supplies that cannot be donated like the hygiene items.” Fry said he’s grateful for the generosity of both the parish and community, as well as the Price Hill Bernen’s Pharmacy for its assistance. The next trips are planned for Feb. 22 to South Sudan and July 30 for Honduras. Following the program, refreshments and additional discussion will follow in the church atrium.

Three Rivers students learn importance of teamwork By Kurt Backscheider

Fifth-graders at Three Rivers Middle School spent a day climbing rock walls, traversing a ropes course and constructing bridges as a way to build character and teamwork skills. A group of fifth-grade teachers at the school organized an outdoor education program for students on Wednesday, Sept. 21. The day was designed to challenge students both mentally and physically. “We’re calling it Character Camp,” said math teacher Robin Hance, who worked with four other teachers to plan the camp. “It’s a wide variety of activities

focused on team building.” The program was put on by Vehicle for Change Inc., a Columbus-based nonprofit group that sets up portable, educational adventure programs at schools throughout the state. The group brought six different challenges for the students to tackle, including a 32-foot-tall rock-climbing wall, a 53-foot-tall portable ropes course, a GPS scavenger hunt activity and a human-size spider web to navigate. Hance said the camp encouraged students to work in groups, communicate with each other and build relationships. “The goal is to show the kids that you have to work together to

succeed,” she said. “We wanted to do this camp at the beginning of the year because fifth-grade is the first year of middle school. Let’s carry on these concepts the rest of this year and throughout all of the middle school years.” Fifth-grade science and social studies teacher Jane Alexander, who also helped organize the camp, said in addition to building leadership and teamwork skills, the program also increases personal confidence as well as mutual support within the group. “It helps the students in facing fears and also motivates them to encourage others,” she said. Hance said several parents volunteered to help run the six

stations and keep an eye on the roughly 150 students who participated. She said she and the other teachers are hoping to offer the camp every year now. “I think it’s great and all of the students are engaged,” she said. “The kids are loving it. They all seem real enthusiastic about it.” Fifth-grader Colton Lawless said he was most looking forward to the climbing the rock wall. He said the camp taught him that it’s important to help others and work in a team. “It’s really fun,” he said. “I think they should do it more often.” For more about your community, visit

Six-mile walk to help other Seton students Oct. 7 West Side students are getting to their feet to help their Seton sisters in need. On Oct. 7, Seton students will take a six-mile walk through Price Hill to support their classmates. The walk will raise money for the new Seton Helping Saints club, a philanthropy organization which

is run completely by students and will directly benefit students. After the walk, the club will use the money to help Seton students who demonstrate a need. The club began after a group of Seton alumnae realized how many alumnae needed a helping hand. Jennifer Dunaway, founder of the

alumnae group Saints Helping Saints, saw fellow graduates who here having trouble making ends meet after their children became ill. “I sent out a few messages on Facebook and we planned a fundraiser for a family whose child had leukemia,” said Dun-

away. “When the fundraiser was over, I realized the great need within our alumnae community.” Since the first fundraiser, Saints Helping Saints helped a great number of alums and helped Seton students start a similar club of their own. Ahead of their walk, Seton stu-

dents are asking for sponsorships from family and community members. Minimum donations of $20 are required for a student to take part in the walk. If you are interested in sponsoring a student, please contact Seton’s Director of Student Life Mary Agricola at

Mercy, Seton flash potential for 2nd half By Ben Walpole

This week marks the halfway point for the high school volleyball season. Last Tuesday night’s volleyball match between Mother of Mercy and Seton, Sept. 20, showed why both WestSide rivals are excited about their progress going into the second half. The Saints looked strong early, taking the first two games, 25-21, 27-25, in front of a packed gym at Mercy High School. But the Bobcats rallied to win the last three, 25-11, 25-19, 15-8, to take the match. The win against Seton and Thursday’s victory against Ursuline put Mercy’s record at 9-2 – about where many expected the Bobcats at this point. "We're working through some early-season battles with inconsistency,” said Mercy head coach Denise Harvey before the win against Seton. “I think we're in the process of getting things ironed out. “We just need to continue to push and focus 100 percent of the time.” Lindsey Dinkelacker ranks second in the Girls Greater Cincinnati League Scarlet in kills. Fellow senior Marissa Prinzbach is second in the league in assists per game. “Their play has been aggressive,” Harvey said. “They’ve been leaders on the court.” The Bobcats also have gotten a boost from the emergence of sophomore

Mercy sophomore Katie Klusman skies for an attack attempt as Seton’s Carly Graman jumps to block, during a match between the two West-Side rivals, Sept. 20, at Mercy High School. Katie Klusman as one of the league‘s top hitters. “She’s grown a lot,” Harvey said. “She’s gotten a lot stronger. She’s been a force for us. It isn’t a surprise, but it’s nice to have her as an offensive threat.” The Bobcats played in the Fall Classic during the weekend, before a big rematch with Mount Notre Dame, Sept. 27. The Cougars lead a packed GGCL Scarlet. “There really is no clear front runner,” Harvey said. “Honestly, I didn't expect there would be.” Seton closed the week at the bottom of the league

standings. But to indicate how closely contested the league is this year, consider that Seton beat the fourthranked team in the state, Cleveland Magnificat, Sept. 10, in Cleveland. Magnificat then beat MND a week later. “My approach was to get them to gain confidence in themselves and believe that they could win,” first-year head coach Beth Sander said. Sander took over a program that won the Division I state championship in 2005 but hasn’t had a winning season since 2007. Winning the Magnificat tournament title went a long

way toward restoring the team’s confidence. “It was very big,” Sander said. “Everyone was really excited. The parents were really excited. “I was probably the most excited, because I felt like everything I’ve been

preaching to them, they really did put it into practice.” Senior middle hitter Carly Graman, a four-year letter winner, and setter Natalie Lietz have been key players for the Saints. Annie Metzger, Emily Stautberg and Maria Tepe round out the group of five seniors. Seton closed the week with a 6-6 overall record and a confidence that this team is much improved on those of recent years. Matches like the 3-2 loss to Mercy and a hard-fought defeat against MND earlier in the month have Sander confident that her team is close to breaking out in league play. “They didn’t back down,” said Sander of her girls in the MND match. “Even when MND had 23 and 24 points, they still were going after it and wanted to win.” For more coverage, visit presspreps

Then she lead a barrage of six Bobcat scorers with two goals in a 7-0 win against Purcell Marian, Sept. 21. Mercy entered the week with a 7-2 record. • Stephanie Chisholm, senior, Oak Hills volleyball The Scots have won five straight matches to grab first place in the GMC standings.

Oak Hills bounces back; St. Xavier rally stalls Compiled by Ben Walpole and Gannett News Service The St. Xavier High School football team rally from a 27-10 second-half deficit fell just short, as the Bombers lost to Moeller 2724, Sept. 23 at Nippert Stadium.

Oak Hills High School’s Maggie Bischoff has been a key leader for the Scots this fall. Bischoff has grown into the leadership role.

She’s stepped it up a lot more for

No. Turns out she’s just a nice person. “She would slow down and run with them, kind of trying to grab their arms so they wouldn’t slow down, keep them going,” Hageman said. “She is the ultimate teammate. She will put her team before herself.” Bischoff ran a 19:09 at the Mason Invitational as a junior, ranking as the fifthbest time in Oak Hills history. She also qualified for the Division I regional meet as an individual last season. Those accomplishments might be trumped, though, by her freshman year when she ran at Scioto Downs as part of the Scots’ state-qualifying team. “That was great,” Bischoff said. “I really enjoyed it. It was really fun going up with the entire team and having that moment together. It’s definitely our goal to get back to state.” Which explains why she readily sacrifices portions of her own individual training if it means helping her teammates. “It’s my job to go back and make sure they’re where they need to be,” Bischoff said. “It’s not just about me. It’s about the team getting better. “I think of cross country as a team sport. Everyone needs motivation and encouraging.” Bischoff hails from a running family. Her older brother Max (class of 2010) was a standout runner at Oak Hills. Her younger brothers Mitchell (junior) and Mason (freshman) run for the Highlander cross country team now. “She has a great family,” Hageman said. “They’re all that way. They’re all really strong, independent people.”


The future looks bright for Oak Hills High School girls cross country team. Three of the squad’s top runners are freshmen. Bayley Feist, B’s Frondorf and Katie Murray each are pulling double duty this fall, running cross country and playing for the Oak Hills soccer team. Feist and Murray play varsity soccer. (Murray is going to California next week as part of the 14-and-under national soccer team.) But the three find time to practice running a couple times a week Feist ran a 19:44 in her first career race, good for 11th-best in school history. Frondorf (19:51) and Murray (20:17) weren’t far behind. “The three hang out,” Oak Hills cross country coach Shellie Hageman said. “They’re at cross country. They play soccer. They’re always at each other’s houses. It’s pretty neat.”

the team.” Bischoff’s leadership has been even more valuable this fall as the varsity squad works three talented freshmen into the lineup. “The girls really listen to her,” Hageman said. “They really respect what she says. They really follow her.” Bischoff, who also swims for Oak Hills and runs track, said she would love to pursue running in college while pursuing a pre-med degree. “She gets good grades. She studies really hard. She’s involved in a lot of things at school,” Hageman said. “She’s just the ultimate role model that you want.” For more coverage, visit presspreps


Brain power

Let’s start using brain power over control power. Step one, example of many. Stable money supply is what we need. A tariff on all imported products coming into America from companies inside or outside America that are products outside of America. Let’s bring back control to a free market inside America from tariff. We want more products built in the U.S.A. Step two, example of many. Stop or cut government program that are spreading crime for not working. “No tax” government programs in most cases are making more money than tax workers, government programs – no tax. Why work? The government programs we have now are to set out in a specified direction of a new world order or slave labor. Traditional American nationalism has been twisted and distorted with the enemy within. Let’s put America to working America. Will the real tea party stand up. Democrats broke a way from control power. Republican party, let Rep. Ron Paul speak. Let’s start brain power over control power. Elve W. Lachtrupp, Green Township

Are you concerned about giving children apple juice after a recent TV show revealed trace amounts of arsenic in the juice? Why or why not? “It’s alarmist. There’s a difference between trace and signifi-

Could the streetcar be the GTO of public transportation? Few subjects cause more spirited debate than the proposed streetcar. Those opposed like to say, “The city should be run like a business! We don’t need a streetcar! Who’s going to ride it? Why go to the expense of building it when busses work well enough? Why not make a bus look like a streetcar?” To me, having lived on the conservative West Side my entire life, this practical viewpoint has merit. Besides, I’m a suburbanite, and a “car guy”; a proud owner of a 1966 Pontiac GTO – so it’s hard for me to identify with the concept of public transportation, much less understand its value as an economic generator. But, as I reflect on the origin of the GTO I wonder, “Could the streetcar be the GTO of public transportation?”

In the early 1960s auto executive John D e l o r e o n observed that young people were putting big engines in their small cars. So he Jim Grawe proposed the Community GTO – a highPress guest p e r f o r m a n c e Lemans, columnist Pontiac with its own identity, to satisfy the wants of a growing market. But, because General Motor’s top management was out of touch with pop culture, they scoffed at his idea saying, “People don’t need it! Who’s going to buy it? Why go to the expense of building it when the Lemans is selling well enough?” Determined not to have his idea rejected, in 1964 John Deloreon secretly and cleverly offered the

GTO to the buying public, not as a separate model, as requested, but as a Lemans option. The GTO quickly became Pontiac’s new economic generator, and the Lemans the GTO’s red headed stepchild. In 1966 my brother, older by eight years, went to Henry Sieve Pontiac in Covedale to purchase a new GTO. Interestingly, as a matter of principle, Mr. Sieve would not sell him one. “You don’t need a GTO”, he explained. “Except for the GTO emblem the less expensive Lemans looks exactly the same, and it will get you to where you want to go.” My brother, not wanting to be perceived as a red headed stepchild, politely thanked him and traveled across town to Jake Sweeny Pontiac. The day he picked up his new GTO he asked if I wanted to come along for the ride – a ride that made my friends envious. Suddenly, I was cool; an authentic,

sophisticated kind of cool – simply because my brother had an authentic, sophisticated, cool car! Over the years my sons were happy to come along for the ride whenever the GTO, now a family heirloom, was out of the garage. But these rides are now far and few between. That’s because my youngest, and the most devout GTO enthusiast, has moved to Chicago because, “Unlike Cincinnati, Chicago has cool public transportation.” I now reason that the most practical argument for the streetcar is that, for a variety of reasons, it makes a growing number of young people feel good about themselves – not the least is the perception that only second-class citizens, of the red headed step child variety, ride the bus, while young urban sophisticates ride authentic streetcars. But what do I know? I’m a car guy. Jim Grawe is the co-founder of the Covedale Neighborhood Association.

County fighting childhood obesity With school back in session and fall in the air, September is a chance to focus on our children through National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. In Hamilton County, we are aware of childhood obesity – nearly one in three of our third-graders are overweight or obese. We know about its devastating effects – obese kids face life-long health issues, not to mention social stigma and low self esteem. But most importantly, we’re taking action to prevent childhood obesity with WeTHRIVE!, a county-wide movement that works year-round to create healthier environments for our children. In Lockland, Michele Kipp, principal of Lockland Elementary School, makes sure that the classroom is a healthy place for all students. Lockland’s WeTHRIVE! School Health Advisory Council has passed policies that set guidelines for food brought in for birthday celebrations and alternatives to using candy as a reward. In Cincinnati, Jessica Shelly, food service director for Cincinnati

Public Schools (CPS), makes healthy options available to more than 33,000 students daily. Last year, CPS worked with to Stacy Wegley WeTHRIVE! become the first Community school district in Press guest Hamilton County to adopt nutricolumnist tion guidelines for foods and beverages sold to students, putting these standards in place one year before required by law. In Woodlawn, residents Cornelia Armstrong and Melcenia Hunter oversee the WeTHRIVE! community garden. Their bountiful harvest over the summer provided healthy fresh vegetables for children in area daycare centers. The two gardeners also shared their passion with kids from the Woodlawn Recreation Center, passing on skills and knowledge to the next generation. Also in Woodlawn, Adale Hall

led Lawson Valley Day Care to become the first child care center in Hamilton County to adopt the WeTHRIVE! Physical Activity and Nutrition Resolution for Child Care Centers, promoting a healthy start in life for our youngest citizens. Over the summer in Avondale, children and teens attended a series of four WeTHRIVE! Do Right! Teen Cooking & Garden classes developed by The Center for Closing the Health Gap. These sessions, held at Southern Baptist Church, brought hands-on healthy cooking and gardening lessons to kids who are at high risk for obesity. Throughout Hamilton County, pediatric medical groups have joined the WeTHRIVE! Hamilton County Obesity Learning Collaborative, a program created by Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center to train and support physicians in the treatment and prevention of childhood obesity. You can see that WeTHRIVE! is working hard to keep our children healthy, during National Childhood

Building bridges to local Hispanic community Relationships are very personal experiences for human beings. From the time of our birth, we learn the value of closeness to another person and the warmth that this closeness brings to our lives. BRIDGES for a Just Community exists at the nexus of building lasting, sustainable and equitable communities for all people strengthened by mutual respect, inclusion, justice and collaboration. It is through these values that BRIDGES stands in a powerful relationship with the Hispanic community to bring attention to the important contributions made by thousands of men, women and children who now call Greater Cincinnati “home.” Having contact with diverse

groups is the first step in building relationships, which is why recent data signals progress. In BRIDGES’ recent study (The Lynnette Greater CincinHeard nati Survey – 2010 Community Spring with the UniverPress guest sity of Cincincolumnist nati), we learned that approximately one-third of region residents who are White (32 percent) said they have contact with a Hispanic person as a good friend; and 36 percent of African Americans report the same relationship.

Fortunately, in the 2010 survey, a majority of Hispanic residents said they have contact with a white person as a good friend (81 percent), which is substantially higher than the 2007 survey report. This progress bodes well as more efforts are made to build and sustain lasting relationships with people who are Hispanic. During this year’s Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 through Oct. 16), BRIDGES encourages our community to learn more about our Hispanic neighbors. A complete list of upcoming Hispanic events and activities is available online at With the growth of the local Hispanic population in the 15county Tristate area, building and sustaining meaningful relation-

ships makes a lot of sense. The number of Hispanic residents has more than doubled in the last 10 years (from 24,630 in 2000 to 55,120 in 2010), which accounts for more almost 25 percent of Greater Cincinnati’s population growth. The Hispanic population contributes $2.4 billion to the local economy. We have much to learn from one another, and BRIDGES believes that every day of the year offers the potential to meet and begin to build a lasting relationship with someone from the Hispanic community. For more information, visit Lynnette M. Heard, M.Ed. is president and CEO of BRIDGES for a Just Community.

cant. I did not see the report but if the FDA isn’t concerned then neither am I. The chemical-free movement is a farce. It’s impossible. Life itself is chemical, and far more dangerous chemicals are produced in nature than synthetically. All organic can be quite toxic!” R.R.

Next question

“At first I doubt if enough arsenic was found to hurt anyone, as my mother always said ‘a little dirt will never hurt anyone” To old-timers this meant it would help you to build an immunity to something. Maybe our young people don’t build enough immunity in today’s world.” L.S.

“I am not concerned about giving children apple juice. Admittedly, I did not watch the TV show that reported the trace amounts of arsenic, but I have known since I was fairly young that apple seeds contain arsenic, and that some people still eat the whole apple (I don't eat the core) and apparently are fine.

Three Rivers Superintendent Rhonda Bohannon thanked the large and excited crowd for supporting the new school. She also gave special recognition to State Sen. Bill Seitz, State Sen. Eric Kearney, State Rep. Denise Driehaus and U.S. Rep. Steve Chabot’s constituent liaison Joe Abner, who all attended the ceremony. “The Three Rivers community appreciates your continued support and willingness to celebrate this momentous event with us,” Bohannon said. “Thank you also goes to the many community members who contributed to make this event successful. The Three Rivers community embodies the philosophy that ‘it takes a whole village.’” The new school is scheduled to be completed for the start of the 2013-2014 school year.

Soup plus bread equals a perfect rainy day meal It’s a soup and bread kind of day: drizzly rain, a bit chilly, and the sun hasn’t broken through the clouds at all. The recipes I’m sharing are perfect for autumn. I encourage you to try the bread. You won’t believe how easy it is, less than 5 minutes mixing up the dough, and by hand! Everyone will think it came from an artisan bakery. It’s the perfect accompaniment to my restaurantstyle black bean soup.

Rita’s black bean soup, like Panera’s

For Gerri. This is a good, basic black bean soup that is as close to Panera’s as I can get. But I’ll share yours, too, so don’t be shy about sending it in. Feel free to add more of any of the seasonings. 1 cup finely chopped onion 2 teaspoons minced garlic 1 generous cup finely chopped celery 1 ⁄2 cup finely chopped red bell pepper 1 teaspoon cumin Pinch or 2 of thyme 2 cans, 15 oz approx. black beans, undrained 1 can vegetable or chicken broth, 14.5 oz size 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon water Lemon juice to taste Cayenne pepper to taste Garnish: sour cream, cilantro Film a pot with olive oil. Add onion, garlic, celery, bell pepper, cumin and

thyme. Cook until onions are soft but n o t brown. A d d one can of beans and Rita the can of Heikenfeld b r o t h . Rita’s kitchen Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer, and cook about 10 minutes. Puree soup. I use a hand blender but you can use a potato masher – you’ll just get a chunkier soup. Add rest of beans and cornstarch mixture. Cook until thickened. Stir in lemon juice to taste and cayenne if you like. Garnish as desired. Serves 6.

Easy Artisan No-Knead Bread

Variations of this recipe have been around a few years. It really is so easy, but I’ve given detailed instructions anyway since this is a very unorthodox way of baking bread. Don’t be put off, either, by my long explanation. The best pan for this is a heavy Dutch oven or stockpot, anywhere from 5-7 quart with a lid and it has to be oven safe to 450. I use my Le Creuset enameled cast iron pan. Check out the photo of this beautiful, crusty, better than bakery, bread. For more photos of the bread, from start to finish, check out my blog at 3 cups bread flour, plus


The best pan for this bread is a heavy Dutch oven or stockpot, anywhere from 57 quart with a lid and it has to be oven safe to 450. bit more for dusting The original recipe says you can use either bread flour (it has more protein/gluten than all purpose so you get a more rustic texture) or all purpose. I’ve only made it with bread flour. 1 ⁄4 teaspoon instant yeast (Rapid rise) 11⁄2 teaspoons salt 11⁄2 cups + 1 tablespoon water Olive oil Flour or cornmeal for dusting (I used cornmeal) Whisk flour, yeast and salt together. Make a well in the center. Add water and stir with a spatula for about a minute, until blended. That’s all it takes, time wise. It will look wet and shaggy. Coat inside of a bowl with olive oil. Put dough in bowl and cover with wrap. Let rise 12-14 hours at room temperature, on counter if you want. It will double in size and still look real wet. Remove dough and fold

over a couple of times. Lay it on the counter or whatever that has been dusted with flour. Let rest 15 minutes.

Shape into a ball – the ball will be somewhat flat. Coat a cotton towel (not terry cloth) that has been dusted with cornmeal or flour. Place dough on towel and cover with another towel. Let rise 1-2 hours or until doubled in size. Now preheat your oven to 450 and while it’s preheating put the pan in with the lid on. Some recipes say to put the pan in the oven for at least 30 minutes, but I find the 20 minutes it takes to preheat my oven is just fine. Carefully, with mitts, take the pan out of the oven and remove the lid, again with mitts. Turn the dough over into the pot, bottom

side up. It it happens to land top side up, it’s OK. Shake the pot if you have to distribute the dough but don’t be too careful - it will bake up just fine. Cover and bake 30 minutes. Remove lid and bake uncovered another 15-30 minutes, until loaf is golden brown and, if you have a thermometer, stick it into the center and it will register 210 degrees when the loaf is done. In my oven this takes about 45-50 minutes total. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. E-mail columns@community with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line.

Title insurance a safety net for those buying homes Today’s extremely low interest rates are prompting some people to look into getting their own home. Many are first-time buyers and, if you’re one of them, there’s one item you need to consider at the time of purchase. Tiah Collins of Westwood said she’s now learned the importance of buying what’s called title insurance. She and her husband had purchased a house on a land contract. “We paid the seller $1,500 a month from August 2006 to May 2007. At that time we were able to get approved for a loan through Wells Fargo Bank,” she said. Collins said they bought the house and began making payments to Wells Fargo. But then, last year, she said, “We got the sheriff knocking on our door saying the house had a ‘for sale’ date. The house was being foreclosed upon.” It turns out even though Collins was making her monthly mortgage payments, the loan belonging to

title sponsor

the prior owner had n e v e r been paid off. “ W e were doing what we were supHoward Ain posed to Hey Howard! do, but they say the seller’s loan was the first lien holder on the house,” Collins said. “Therefore, that was the best lien so … we’re just out.” Wells Fargo also sued Collins because the house was being taken over by that prior lender. Fortunately, Wells Fargo was able to get its loan paid in full because it had required Collins to buy title insurance on behalf of the bank. Unfortunately, the Collins didn’t buy title insurance for themselves so they lost the house to the first lender. Had the Collins’ bought an owner’s title insurance policy, it would have paid off the first lender and they could have remained in the

house. “We didn’t buy title insurance because we didn’t know about it. We were first-time home buyers,” she said. On top of everything else, Collins said this whole affair is going to continue to haunt them because it’s going to go against their credit rating. “Had I known about title insurance, definitely I would have gotten it,” she said. Collins later sued the seller but the case was dismissed because no one was able to prove where the money went. Bottom line when buying a house, always hire an attorney to make sure you’re fully protected – especially if you’re a firsttime home buyer. And be sure to consider buying a title insurance policy to protect yourself, not just your lender. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

GUMP-HOLT Funeral Home We have said before that we are proud to be a locally owned and family run Funeral Home. We would like to share with you some of our beliefs... We believe that our first duty to the families in our community is to serve our friends with a professional, yet a caring and personal attitude. Dignity, understanding, honesty and value are our traditions. We believe that each service should be offered in accordance with each family’s individual point of view. And this means not imposing ideas, but accepting the family’s wishes and offering advice when it is requested. We believe it is our duty to provide our services within a wide range of prices that every family can afford. We believe what we do is important to every family and how we do it is important to us... Every detail of a funeral service is important to us. To Those We Serve We Pledge: confidential business and professional relationships; cooperation with customs of all religions and creeds; observance of all respect due the deceased; the highest standards of competence and dignity in the conduct of all services; truthful representation of all services and merchandising.
