Green Twp. voters face renewal levy on November ballot By Kurt Backscheider

GREEN TWP. — Voters will de-

cide whether they want to renew a tax levy supporting the police and fire departments. Township officials are seeking the renewal of a 1.9-mill safety services levy on the Nov. 5 ballot. The five-year levy was first approved by township voters in 2008. Green Township Trustee Chairman Rocky Boiman said

it’s important residents know the levy is a renewal of an existing levy and it will not raise taxes. It costs the owner of a home Boiman worth $100,000 about $56 per year in property taxes. It generates roughly $2 million annually for the police and fire departments, with each department receiving about $1 million.

Due to state cuts like the elimination of the estate tax and reductions to the local government fund, Boiman said the township is estimated to West lose $2.5 million to $3 million in revenue next year. “All the cuts to local governments are really beginning to take shape this year and next,” he said.

“This is a very crucial levy for our police and fire departments so they have the resources and equipment they need to continue providing excelWitsken lent services to our residents.” Green Township Fire & EMS Chief Doug Witsken said the township asked for the levy five years ago because the police and fire departments saw a 55

Elder, Moeller partner to help area food pantry By Kurt Backscheider

and Leah Fightmaster

PRICE HILL — Two Greater Catholic League rivals are teaming up to help feed the community. The Elder Mom’s Club will host its annual collection drive for the Holy Family/St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry during the football game between Elder and Moeller high schools Friday, Dugan Oct.11, at the Pit. Jen Dugan, president of the Elder Mom’s Club, said this is the seventh year the club has partnered with a rival GCL school to collect food and raise money for the pantry. This year they are working with the Moeller Moms’ Club. “We usually alternate between Moeller and St. Xavier, depending on Elder’s home football schedule,” she said. “We typically have a good response, however, the key is to get the other school actively involved.” Dugan said Lynda Mackey, president of the Moeller Moms’ Club, embraced the idea and is working closely with other Moeller moms to spread the message. “We both agree it’s OK to be GCL rivals on the field, but when it comes time to supporting the community we’re GCL

Cheviot hosting its first music and arts festival By Kurt Backscheider

CHEVIOT — Jeff Baker said the city has great potential to be a cultural destination. To promote Cheviot and its possibility of being home to more art galleries, quaint

shops and new cafes and restaurants, Baker, who serves as an at-large city councilman, is helping organize the inaugural Cheviot Music & Arts Festival. Planned by the Cheviot Cultural Development Committee in collaboration with the Cheviot Firemen’s Association, the

festival runs 1-7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, at the Cheviot Memorial Fieldhouse, 3729 Robb Ave. “It’s the start of what we want to accomplish here in Cheviot,” said Baker, owner of Higher Ground Coffee House See FESTIVAL, Page A2

strong,” Dugan said. “Together we can truly make a difference.” Moms will be at the gates prior to the 7:30 p.m. game collecting donations of non-perishable items. Those who would like to help can bring such food items as canned fruit and vegetables, cereal, peanut butter, pasta and canned meat or tuna. Personal care items like toothpaste, shampoo, soap and toilet paper, and baby diapers and wipes are also needed. Monetary donations will be accepted as well. Moeller’s Mackey said that even though the two schools are rivals, working together to help the community is not only positive for the young men that attend each school, but also reinforces the lessons they learn at school. “In Catholic schools, social justice is an important subject taught to the boys,” she said. “Anything we can do to assist in someone’s cause shows the boys a positive example.” The Holy Family/St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry assisted nearly 2,000 families in June, July and August. The pantry served close to 6,000 clients, of whom more than 2,700 are children. Dugan said the numbers are staggering when you look at the statistics of how many families the pantry served, especially the number of children. “This is real life, and it’s in

Prior to having two crews, he sad if an ambulance or fire engine was out on a run, and another emergency call came in, there were not enough staff to respond. Green Township Police Chief Bart West said the department uses the levy funds to pay for salaries, benefits and the costs of operating the department. After the levy passed in 2008, the police

department hired four officers and added a patrol beat. “Due to the cutbacks at the state level, we are in dire need of passing this renewal levy,” West said. “We can’t afford to lose this levy. It would result in serious cutbacks.” Witsken said if the re-

newal were to fail and the township loses an additional $2 million in revenue, on top of all the state cuts, it would have a devastating affect on police and fire services. “It’s important to renew this levy so we can continue to operate the way we currently are with our belts tight.”

on Harrison Avenue. “We’re trying to become more culturally relevant, and this is the first of many events we want to plan.” Not only does the festival serve as a way to attract people to the city and open their eyes to the sturdy housing stock and potential for a thriving business district, he said it will also raise money to support the Cheviot Fire Department. All proceeds from the event will benefit the fire

department. Baker said area musicians will provide entertainment throughout the day, and festival attendees will able to browse a variety of artist and crafts booths. Food, beer and wine will be available for purchase. He said the food and drink vendors include Rhinegeist Brewery, Henke Winery, NYPD Pizza and Game Time Sports Bar & Grill. The festival will feature art presentations from a graffiti artist, airbrushing artists and a pottery spinner as well, he said. Members of the Chevi-

our back yard,” she said. “We can be a part of something special.” Mackey said that because Moeller students have their own food drives within school, where they’re the one collecting food and donations, it’s good for them to see that their parents are helping out as well. “The most positive part for Moeller is that it shows the boys that their parents also support them in other ways off the field, too,” she said.

Baker said city leaders are looking for ways to encourage economic development in Cheviot, and promoting and attracting the arts is one way to boost the economy. He and his fellow committee members hope the festival, along with future events, will bring people to the city and help them realize Cheviot is a great place to live and do business, he said. “We obviously would love to have a huge turnout,” he said.

Elder students mark 40 years of walking for others By Kurt Backscheider

PRICE HILL — West Side residents might see waves of purple clad teenagers walking through the community. Elder High School students, along with members of the faculty and staff, will take part in the school’s 40th annual “Walk for Others” Monday, Oct. 14. Every year since 1974 Elder students and faculty have taken to the streets of the West Side to raise money for the school’s tuition assistance program and area charities. “This is a great way for our students to learn the value of helping others, whether it be the guy sitting next to them in class

or a neighbor in the community,” Elder Principal Tom Otten said. Students will make a 12-mile trek through sev-

eral West Side neighborhoods, including Price Hill, Westwood, Cheviot and Green Township. Elder Alumni Director Brian Bill said roughly 60 percent of Elder students receive some form of financial assistance, making the “Walk for Others” an important fundraiser for the tuition assistance program and enabling young men to attend Elder who otherwise could not afford to do so. Students begin collecting pledges from family members, neighbors, alumni and friends of the school in late September and finish up in mid-October, he said. The students understand the proceeds benefit others, and he said the walk typically enjoys 100 percent participation

from students and faculty. “We’re teaching them what it’s like to be a good member of the community and to take care of our neighbors,” he said. “That’s what this is all about.” Bill said 25 percent of the money raised is donated to area charitable or-

ganizations. Past recipients have included Bethany House, Santa Maria Community Services, Project El-Moe, Price Hill Will, Tender Mercies, Imago, Council on Child Abuse, Healthy Moms and Babes, Holy Family Food Pantry, Our Daily Bread, Miracle League Adapted Baseball, The

Women’s Connection and St. Michael’s Food Pantry, he said. “We support several charities throughout the year, and proceeds from the walk directly help fund those efforts,” he said. Elder’s goal is to raise $73,000 with this year’s walk, Bill said.

Fundraiser supports scholarship fund at Elder By Kurt Backscheider

PRICE HILL — A group of Elder High School alumni invite West Siders to a party benefiting a scholarship fund at their alma mater. Members of the Hank Mueller Elder Veterans Scholarship Fund committee are hosting a fundraiser from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13, at Jim & Jack’s, 3456 River Road. The “Pre-Game Bash and Fundraiser Party” will feature activities before and during the Cincinnati Bengals game. The Bengals play the

Buffalo Bills at 1 p.m. “Hank has been a driving force among our classmates,” said Price Hill resident Tom Scanlon, a1966 Elder graduate who serves on the scholarship committee. “He’s such a positive spirit.” Henry J. Mueller III, known as Hank, enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps after graduating from Elder in 1966, and within a year was shipped to Vietnam. Thirty-three days after arriving there, his unit was ambushed while trying to rescue other Marines and a mortar round severely wounded him. He was blinded and

Tom Lauber

suffered brain trauma from the shrapnel. Scanlon said during the 15 months he spent recovering at Bethesda Naval Hospital outside Washington, D.C., Elder staff and students sent him prayers and a care package every month. The support from the Elder community was transformational for Mueller, and it gave him the will and purpose to live, Scanlon said. Mueller, who now lives in Florida and works as a lay minister, went on to graduate from college, marry, raise a family and serve as an agent for good in his community.

Inspired by Mueller’s resolve, Scanlon said members of the class of 1966 established the Hank Mueller scholarship about five years ago to honor him and all the other men from Elder who served their country. The scholarship provides tuition assistance to Elder students who are descendants of military veterans. “We just want to help Hank give back to Elder High School,” Scanlon said. “Hopefully we’re doing some good work.” Mueller said he lived across the street from Elder Stadium after he came home from the war, and he would often walk over the the empty Pit, sit on the concrete grandstands and look toward

the school. Even though he couldn’t see the building, he said he could remember the way it looked in his mind and he thought of all the men who graduated before him. “Whether they became police officers, firefighters, doctors, lawyers or medics, you know they all carried that Elder spirit with them whenever they went out into the world,” he said. “It’s a real blessing to be a graduate of Elder High School.” Mueller said he’s grateful to his friends for thinking of him and naming a scholarship after him, and he’s proud the fund gives other young men the opportunity to obtain the same founda-

tion he did as a teenager. “It’s a beautiful feeling,” he said. Scanlon said the fundraising party will have games and prizes, food and a cash bar. There will be several raffle drawings, including a $1,000 cash prize raffle, a barbecue grill raffle and a twohour helicopter ride raffle, he said. The committee’s goal is to raise $10,000 for the scholarship fund, he said. “Hank is an amazing role model,” Scanlon said. “It’s a real privilege to provide a vehicle for him to give back to Elder, and we’re honored to do it.” For more information about the scholarship and the fundraiser, visit

Elder High School, in collaboration with its class of 1966, hosted a dedication and devotional Mass earlier this year honoring the 11 men from Elder who died during the Vietnam War. Although wounded in combat, 1966 Elder graduate Hank Mueller was able to come home from the war. He and his classmates established the Hank Mueller Elder Veterans Scholarship Fund to give back to their alma mater. A fundraiser for the scholarship is set for Sunday, Oct. 13.FILE PHOTO

Westwood Historical Society looks at oral histories

Recorded information about local history is often piecemeal and focuses on major events. Unfortunately, personal perceptions of those events, along with details of ordinary life and gradual changes in the landscape are seldom preserved. Diaries and oral histories are ways to capture these valuable pieces of history before they are lost forever. Jim Bodle, a professor of psychology and director of the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence at the College of Mount St. Joseph, will discuss an oral history project he is working on to capture memories of the Westwood community. As he shares some of the stories he gathered during interviews with several Westwood residents, he will talk about the oral history process and the lessons he has learned along the way. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9, at Westwood First Presbyterian Church, 3011 Harrison Ave.. All who are interested are welcome to attend.

This summer, parent volunteers have brushed and rolled more than 20 gallons of paint in the hallways and stairwells of St. Bernard School. In addition, more than 1,000 square feet of tile were replaced in the halls. St. Bernard’s Parents’ Group funded the makeover to update the school’s appearance and heighten students’ and families’ pride in their school. “Now the look of our school is on par with all of the fantastic things we have to offer,” said

Laurie Schneider, parent and former Parents’ Group president. “It has been a wonderful experience to work together and achieve tangible results that our students will definitely notice when they come back to school. I can’t wait to see their faces,” Principal Mark Clevidence said. St. Bernard School is at the corner of Springdale and Harrison and serves more than 190 students in kindergarten through eighth-grade.

Parent Laurie Schneider works on finishing one of St. Bernard School's makeover projects, painting the stairwells. PROVIDED

New faces in Oak Hills in administration The nearly 8,000 Oak Hills’ district students who are seeing new faces among the building administrative teams.

District office

At district office, Jeff Brandt takes over as the human resources director. Brandt was the principal of Oak Hills High School for the past eight years. He started with the district in 2000 and during his time was assistant principal Brandt at Rapid Run Middle school and Delhi Middle School. In his new role, Brandt assists in the hiring and development of teachers and staff. “I plan to put the very best teachers in the classroom to help students maximize their full potential,” Brandt said. “I want to thank the staff, parents and the thousands of students who I’ve had the privilege to work with. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to serve as principal and want to thank the Oak Hills community for all the support. Thanks for the many memories and best wishes to all my former students.”

High school

John Stoddard is the new high school principal. Stoddard was the curriculum, instruction and assessment administrator at the high school where he worked with several outside organizations to bring exciting opportunities to the stuStoddard dents and families at Oak Hills High School. “Much of that work will be expanded upon as I take the reigns as the high school princi-

pal,” Stoddard said. In his 14th year with the district, Stoddard has worked at every level. He was previously a teacher at Rapid Run Middle School, assistant principal at J.F. Dulles Elementary School and Delhi Middle School. He was also the principal at J.F. Dulles Elementary and Rapid Run Middle School. “It has been great to serve the students of Oak Hills in all of these capacities and to really get to watch the students grow up from kindergarten through graduation,” Stoddard said. Kristi Bashara also joins the high school administrative team as an assistant principal. “I plan to accomplish this by partnering with the parents of Oak Hills High School to ensure their child’s needs are being met,” Bashara said. “I also plan to provide leadBashara ership and support to the teachers and staff of Oak Hills to ensure that our students receive instruction that targets the individual needs of their students in order to promote their growth and learning.” Bashara recently served as the assistant principal at C.O. Harrison Elementary. “While I will miss all the Colonels, I look forward to working with the students, parents, and staff at Oak Hills High School,” she said. “It excites me to see the opportunities that our high school students have before them today while they pursue their high school diploma and after they graduate from Oak Hills.” Prior to her time at Harrison she worked in the district for 11 years in several buildings and roles. She taught at J.F. Dulles Elementary and Oakdale Elementary, served as the coordinator of special programs for the high school, and was an as-

sistant principal for three of the district elementaries, Delshire, Oakdale and Springmyer, splitting her week between the three buildings. An alumna of Oak Hills High School, she comes from a strong family of Highlanders as both of her parents are also alums. Previously an intervention specialist for the last seven years at Oak Hills High School, Tara Willig joins the adWillig ministrative team as special services coordinator. She has also served as the special services department chair at the high school. In his second year with the district, 18th year in education, Doug Geygan moves to the high school as an assistant principal. Last year he served as the assistant principal at Bridgetown Middle School. He hopes to accomplish the mission and vision of the high school in his expanded role and “enjoyed and learned a lot from the principal and staff at BMS.” Sonny Tudor, former HR director, was named the interim athletic director. Scott Toon, former principal at J.F. Dulles Elementary, replaces Stoddard as the curriculum, instruction and assessment administrator at the high school.

Middle school

Bridgetown Middle School welcomes former middle school math teacher of seven years Matt Page as assistant principal. “My hopes are that we can all work together to increase student learning and prepare them to be college and career ready,” he said. Page also coached football and girls basketball at the middle school level. He has been in the district for nine years. “I am very much looking for-


ward to moving into administration and feel very blessed to be in Oak Hills,” Page said. “I look forward to having a great 2013-14 school year.”

Elementary school

Beth Riesenberger is the new principal at J.F. Dulles Elementary. “It is my purpose to continue the work of excellence that has been established and provide positive, energetic leadership for the students and staff as we launch into a new era of accountability and academic rigor,” she said. Riesenberger has been with the district since 1992 when she started as a firstgrade teacher at C.O. Harrison. She has also comRiesenberger pleted Title I consulting work for the district, served as the assistant principal at Oakdale, and most recently was the assistant principal at J.F. Dulles Elementary. “I will lead the students by giving them a foundation of a safe and inviting school, helping to provide the best atmosphere for learning and growing,” she said. “This will be delivered by leading the entire staff and student body in a common mission of ‘doing your best and being your best.’ We will work as a team to provide the most optimal learning environment possible for our students. “I consider it a true privilege to be leading such an outstanding school community and will work fervently to help our students and staff grow,” Riesenberger said. Joining Riesenberger at J.F. Dulles is new assistant principal Mark Winters. He will also have district responsibilities

for English language arts, preschool special education programs, eLearning and world languages. His goal is to help the Winters district meet the challenges of the Third Grade Reading Guarantee and support high quality educational programs, technology experiences, and world language activities at the elementary level. Winters was most the special programs principal at Oak Hills High School. He spent the first 13 years of his career at the elementary level. Winters has been employed by the district since 2004 in a variety of roles including assistant principal at C.O. Harrison Elementary and Bridgetown Middle School and administrator of the former Highlander Academy when it was located at J.F. Dulles Elementary. His last few years at the middle school and high school have given him a unique perspective on the organization. “It will better prepare me to understand the scope and sequence of our services to students and will help form the decisions that I make as an elementary administrator,” he said. Emily Winkle joins the administrative team as assistant principal at C.O. Harrison Elementary. She recently worked at Delshire ElemenWinkle tary School with grades one through five. This will be her sixth year working in the district. “The staff, students, parents, and leadership there are all phenomenal and I will miss them all very much,” she said. “Delshire will always be a very special place to me.”

West Side golfers hit it down the middle at sectionals By Tom Skeen

CINCINNATI — What a day it was for the St. Xavier High School golf team. The Bombers set a new Division I southwest sectional tournament record after shooting a team total of 285 at Miami Whitewater Golf Course Oct. 2, breaking their previous record of 291. “When you’re playing golf as a team game everybody has to stay in it until the end because you never know whose score is going to count,” St. X coach Alex Kepley said. “… It’s beyond words to have a 67 and two 71s.” The 4-under par 67 came from sophomore Kirran Magowan, who earned medalist honors by four strokes over teammates Matt Schiller and Brendan Keating. “He is the most capable player of being able to do that on a consistent basis,” Kepley said of Magowan. “He’s had a tremendous number of good rounds, but this one is special.” Right behind the Bombers were the Oak Hills Highlanders with a team total of 305, just two strokes off their course record of 303. “… To see the growth of these kids is phenomenal,” Highlander coach Aron Strine said. “The consistency has been great and it’s been a fantastic year so far and hopefully it continues.” Senior Sam Meek finished fourth overall with a 1-over par 72. After shooting 38 on the front nine, Meek was able to turn it up on the back nine and closed with a 1-under 34. “Once he really got the feel and had a few putts roll in for him it gave him a lot of confidence,” Strine said. After Fairfield finished with a total of 317, the final qualifying position came down to two familiar foes in Elder and La Salle. The Panthers were in the clubhouse with a 322, and after a 163 team total on the front nine, the Lancers came through on the backside. Four of the five La Salle golfers turned in better back-nine scores than they did on the front to give the Lancers

a 154 on the back for a team total of 317 and a tie for third place to bump the Panthers to fifth place and out of districts as a team. “We didn’t have a great day,” Lancer coach Jon Feldkamp said. “(On the) front nine we played terrible, came out tight, stiff, but once we loosened up we got in a bit of a rhythm. We settled down and played much better golf.” All was not lost for the Panthers. Despite not qualifying for districts as a team, sophomores Kurt Fortman (81) and Drew Schramm (78) along with senior Zach Bauer (81) qualified as individuals.

Oak Hills football duo ready to return to the field By Tom Skeen

GREEN TWP. — As they lay on the 6-yard line of Dwire Field at Mason High School’s Atrium Stadium, Cary Jones and Khiren Beamon found each other’s hand and held it tight. The Oak Hills High School seniors had just collided inside the 5-yard line and the crowd watched their helmets pop off and whisk through the air to the 10-yard line as the two lay motionless on the field. Both were immobilized and taken off the field via stretcher and taken to the hospital. “I just remember waking up in the hospital and wondering what happened,” Beamon said before an Oct. 1 practice, not two weeks after the Sept. 20 incident. “I was trying to figure

for this to be the end of his football career. That doesn’t seem to be the case, as both players were in full pads Oct. 1 but had yet been cleared for full contact. The amount of support and See FOOTBALL, Page A9



Gators looking to transition to winning ways By Tom Skeen

WESTWOOD — If the stars were aligned the Gamble Montessori Gators would be 4-1, not 1-4 this season. A variety of factors, both on and off the football field, have contributed to the Gators’ rough start.

For the first time in three years the school is back in its original building in Westwood and the transition is still underway. “The locker room isn’t ready and we just have so much stuff going on it’s hard to even think about the whole football perspective sometimes,”

coach Stan West said. “I just keep telling the guys we are still young though.” With a roster of just 22 players, the Gators boast only three seniors, but youth means growing pains and mistakes and West has seen too many mistakes that have led to a couple losses this season.

“Just bad snaps, missed tackles and the little things,” he said. “That comes from not having everybody here during twoa-days and when school started I had five or six kids that came in that need to get in the weight room. We have to change some things around here.” The one area that hasn’t been troubling has been the offense. The Gators have scored 20-plus points in four of their five games and are averaging 25.2 points per game despite being shutout in their season opener. Leading West’s offense is senior weapon Javontae Lipscomb. The running back/wide receiver/special teams specialist has 10 total touchdowns on the season, 472 rushing yards,

251 receiving yards and 390 kick-return yards. As a junior he put up more than 1,100 rushing yards and scored 11 touchdowns. Junior Tim Andrews is in his second year playing quarterback after splitting time at the position last season. Through five games he completing

nearly 55 percent of his passes for 851 yards and nine touchdowns. On the other side of the ball is where the Gators find themselves in trouble. The defense is giving up more than 39 points per game and West knows his young guys must step up down the stretch.

love shown to the duo in the hours and days following the hit was inspiring. Both their Twitter accounts and cell phones blew up with signs of love and care, and it was something that struck a deep nerve with Jones. “I kind of joked with a few of my classmates and told them I didn’t know I was that important to people,” the full safety said. “It made me feel so good about myself that people were out there caring and showing love for me and my family as well as him and his family.” What wasn’t so easy was telling their families they were ready to take the field again. Jones’ dad isn’t much of a football fan to begin with, while his mother showed some hesitation at first before yielding her trust back in her son. For Beamon, who comes from a family of 10, saw a little more backlash. “… All my little sisters were like ‘you are not going back out there. You’re not,’” the defensive back said. “My mom said if I come to your games I’m going to watch it from the back of my hands.” In the end, what was a scary accident has turned into a moment two best friends can now some-

Candidate ready to face challenges

For the first time in nearly 30 years voters in Miami Township will not see Trustee Joe Sykes on their ballot. Joe has set the standard for excellence in local government, our community has benefitted greatly from his many years of service, and he will be missed. Fortunately, Trustee Paul Beck is seeking re-election to one of the two available seats. I am a candidate for Miami Township trustee because I believe I possess the experience, knowledge and skills necessary to perform the duties of trustee at the highest level, and if elected, I will provide a like-minded, stable and consistent approach to this important transition.

A publication of

the Hamilton County Zoning Commission, served on the County Board of Zoning Appeals, and was a longtime director and past president of the Western Economic Council. As a result of my civic involvement, I have had a rather unique opportunity to closely observe governments, large and small, good and bad for many years. I believe that Miami Township has been the best governed township in Hamilton County, and I am fully committed and prepared to seeing that continue. Our residents enjoy a quality of life that exceeds most and is comparable to any in Hamilton County. Excluding countywide and local school levies, which the township has no capacity to control, our

township millage totals 10.91, second lowest in Hamilton County. With state cuts to the local government fund, the repeal of the estate tax, and property devaluations, challenges exist. As a member of the Township Financial Review Committee and a business owner with nearly 40 years of experience, I believe I possess a blend of skills that will serve our voters well. As chairman of both the Hamilton County Zoning Commission and the Hamilton County Board of Zoning Appeals, I have conducted many highly controversial and emotionally charged public hearings. Win or lose, I believe that the participants would say that they were treated fairly, and

that the proceedings were transparent and professional. Constituents deserve nothing less. Susan and I have been blessed with two wonderful children, our health, a successful business, and a wonderful life in a clean, safe, thriving and well governed community. I have reached a point in my life both personally and professionally where I am fully prepared and willing to serve. Miami Township has always chosen it’s trustees very wisely, and will do so again. I humbly ask for your consideration and I sincerely appreciate your support. Bob Polewski is a candidate for Miami Township trustee.

CH@TROOM Oct. 2 question Congress has passed an exemption from federal law to allow the Delta Queen to once again operate as an overnight passenger vessel. Would you feel safe as a passenger on the Delta Queen? Why or why not?

“I would feel safe aboard the Delta Queen on the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. Compare the DQ’s safety record versus the Ocean-going Carnival cruise liners with thousand of passengers on board. Granted the DQ is wood, but at least land is in site 100 percent of the time and there are not any Somali pirates (Indian Ocean), ice bergs (Titanic) or cowardly captains (Costa Concordia). It will be great to see the Delta Queen back in the Queen City at the New Banks. Hopefully The Belle of Louisville will be here to race the DQ again for opening day. I will look forward to that overhead picture (from a blimp) and all the politicians there taking credit. They may outnumber the passengers. Go figure!” T.D.T.

“I would love to be a passenger on the Delta Queen if the cost wasn't so exorbitant. I think it's great that the Delta Queen is still in operation to remind us of our past mode of transportation that didn't involve cars.” E.E.C.

“I would feel more safe on the Delta Queen, for if were to sink,

owns the Queen has taken very good care of it.

at least you could swim to shore. If I were to ride with the government, I think we just keep sinking and no way to be saved.” D.J.

“Why not? The Delta Queen still appears as a sound vessel, and I am certain all maintenance is up to par according to maritime and Coast Guard regulations. Yes, I would love to take a trip on this historic boat.” O.H.R.

“What part of wooden superstructure ships not being safe for overnight passengers don't we understand? This regulation was put in place for a good reason. Sentimentality is not a reasonable justification to risk people's lives.” F.S.D.

“I would feel very safe on the Delta Queen. This boat has been a long tradition on the Ohio River and a true spirit for the city of Cincinnati. The company that

“I remember this same battle being waged over 40 years ago and several times in the interim. I have no idea why Congress cannot resolve this matter once and for all. “I would love the opportunity to take a lengthy cruise on the Queen, confident the crew is well-trained and the boat is equipped with adequate safety gear. “The whole issue in the past was the wooden hull of this vessel. With the lock systems on the waterways and the radar/sonar and other modern navigational aids, I very much doubt a fatal accident could occur due to the hull's material alone.” R.V.

“As much as the Delta Queen is part of Cincinnati tradition, I personally would not want to spend time traveling on an old wooden boat. “While I like adventure, the DQ is way past its prime and it was taken out of service for good reason, it is dangerous. It does not meet federal standards and Mr. Chabot is trying to make points with the old folks on the West Side by endangering them. “But the Delta Queen is due for retirement. Let her go.” J.Z.

Sept. 25 question Should college athletes be paid? If so, now much? If not, why not?

“Division 1 (FBS) athletes on full scholarship get room, board, meals, tuition and books. These scholarships can last up to five years; so far so good. However the Scholarships can be withdrawn or renewed on a yearly basis. Not all athletes playing a sport have these 'full rides.’ Athletes on full rides are not allowed to work. They put in about 30 hours per week on their sport plus going to class and studying. Many athletes come from homes that can not provide spending money; they cannot sell their tickets or memorabilia. Many of these college sports (football, basketball) provide billions in revenue to the colleges via TV packages and tickets sales. I have no problem with these athletes getting some reasonable spending money. Their head coaches make millions.”

Two-way brisket can be made in oven, slow cooker The seasons on our little patch of heaven are marked by what’s going on outside in our gardens and what my husband, Frank, is doing with our outside equipment. Right now he’s “salting things away for Rita the winHeikenfeld ter,” meanRITA’S KITCHEN ing he’s servicing the tiller, tractor, boat and lawn mowers for a winter rest in the garage. Our bell peppers have finally ripened, so I was able to add them to an antipasto tray I made for a friend’s rehearsal dinner.

Easy antipasto

Need a stunning and delicious appetizer? An antipasto tray fills the bill. It is not only appealing to the eye, but there’s something on the tray for everybody. Go to your olive bar and ask lots of questions. I went to the Eastgate Jungle Jim’s olive bar and was able to sample whatever I wanted. This will help in choosing the right ingredients for your budget and guests. I did choose olives without pits. Since prosciutto is expensive, I bought a few slices to garnish and folded them over on top of the antipasto. I also sprinkled a can of chickpeas on top. The nice thing about this recipe is that it can be assembled a day ahead. For the sauce, I use Caesar salad dressing with fresh herbs stirred in. I drizzle the dressing on right before I serve it.

My favorite two-way brisket

Brisket is a cut of meat from the lower chest or breast of beef. It is amazingly flavorful, but tough, so slow cooking is a must. Either way you cook this – in the oven or in a slow cooker – the brisket turns out tender and so delicious. Serve with mashed pota-

toes or noodles. 3 pounds beef brisket 2 cups chili sauce 1 cup brown sugar, packed 1 cup beef broth 1 very large onion, sliced 1 ⁄4 teaspoon ground cloves 3 bay leaves Salt and pepper to taste

Oven: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine chili sauce, sugar and broth. Pour about half of this in the bottom of roasting pan. Place brisket on sauce, fat side up. Distribute onion, cloves and bay leaves over brisket. Pour rest of sauce over. Cover and bake 50-55 minutes per pound or until meat is fork tender. Remove brisket from pan and remove bay leaves and whole cloves. Cut brisket across the grain. Skim off any fat from top of sauce. Pour sauce over brisket (or put sauce in refrigerator overnight and the fat will congeal on top for easy removal. Then reheat with brisket in 375 degree oven, covered, or in microwave). Slow cooker: I like to cook mine 9-12 hours or so on low, until meltingly tender.

ence of the tool. If you can still feel grooves, your steel is still useful. It is magnetized to pick up microscopic fillings that come off the knife’s blade. It’s a good idea to rub the steel with a cloth after use so grooves don’t get clogged. Now unless the honer has diamond chips in it, most steels won’t sharpen a dull knife (they restore the knife’s bite by straightening the microscopic “teeth” at the edge that fold with use). Now even if your honing steel is in good

Perfectly grilled salmon/seafood following the 70/30 rule Have the grill hot, lightly brush both sides of fish with oil, and start grilling skin side up with the grill closed. (Or put a disposable pan over the fish). Leave it alone until about 70 percent of the fish is done on first side. You’ll know it by the looks and also if it will release easily. This allows fish to form a nice crust. Turn it and finish cooking. The rule of about 7-10 minutes per inch of thickness works, also. Start with 7 minutes and go from there.

Easy. Affordable. Healthy. Now that’s a plan.

Beware of e-mail, internet scammers ‘Dracula’ haunts These days scammers have taken to the internet to steal your money with fake emails, fraudulent websites and misleading sales offers. While internet scams are numerous, several consumers still report receiving scams through the mail. A Fort Thomas man wrote me about a credit card offer he received from AmTrade International Bank. It offered him a credit card with “A $3,600 Visa credit limit! Guaranteed!” The man sent what was supposed to have been a refundable $900 fee, but says he never received the credit card nor a pre-paid gas card that was also promised. The 74-year-old man says he’s on a fixed income so the loss of all that money hit him pretty hard. Although he paid by

check and contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Trade CommisHoward sion, he Ain was told HEY HOWARD! nothing could be done to recover his money. Such scams are very popular so remember never send money to someone who promises to loan you money or extend credit. A Hyde Park woman wrote me to say she knew immediately the letter she received was a scam. It allegedly came from Publishers Clearing House and used the company’s real address. The $1.5 million she was told she won was anything but real. She knew not to

bother calling the long distance phone number given to claim her winnings. A Wyoming woman received a letter telling her she qualified for an award of two round-trip airline tickets. She suspected it was a scam because there was no return address and the letter had bad punctuation. So she too was told to call a phone number to claim her prize, allegedly valued at nearly $1,400. Better Business Bureau says this is just a phishing scam intending to steal people’s personal information. This woman never entered a contest to receive this award of two free airline tickets plus two nights a major hotel. Fortunately, just like the Hyde Park woman, the Wyoming woman didn’t call the number and says she wants to warn others about this scam. Many people across the nation have received this letter.

attend a timeshare sales presentation before they could receive the tickets they won. Another person who called was told they had to give their credit card number over the phone. One of the most frequent scams I’ve run into involves criminals sending you what appears to be a real check for thousands of dollars. You’re supposed to deposit the check, keep some of the money, then wire the rest to the sender. Unfortunately, many consumers learn too late that the check they received in the mail is phony – and now they’re on the hook to repay the bank for the good money they wired to the criminals. Bottom line, the mail is still full of scams these days so you have to beware.

Free haircuts for hair donation Heather Christensen is ready to cut her ponytail, and it’s for a good cause. Christensen, an assistant professor of biology at the College of Mount St. Joseph, organized the Beautiful Lengths Campaign at the Mount Sunday, Sept. 29, as part of a national effort to donate hair to make wigs for cancer patients. “This is something I’ve always had a passion for,” Christensen aid. “This will be my fourth time donating

hair to a cause such as this, and it's a different experience for me Christensen each time. I'm so excited to share this with my Mount family, and am thrilled at the chance to help connect Mount students, faculty, and staff with members of the surrounding community!” People donating their

hair received a free haircut by stylists. The nearest parking lot for the public to access the Pavilion is by the main entrance off Delhi Road. The Beautiful Lengths Campaign is a partnership between Pantene and The American Cancer Society. They are the largest non-profit health organization committed to saving lives from every cancer and improving the quality of life for people facing disease.

Presidential greetings on 100th birthday


Irene Ware Simon of Western Hills got a special greeting for her 100th birthday – a note from President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama. She turned 100 on July 9 with a celebration at Henke’s in Westwood, where they celebrated hr 90th birthday. Simon was born in Covington, but her family moved to McHenry and Westwood Northern Boulevard when she was 4. She grew up on an orchard where they grew fruits and vegetables and raised chickens. At age 18 in 1931, she William “Bud” Joseph Ware, who was born in 1907. He ran and served as a mechanic for Ware’s Service Station, at Glenway and Casa Loma Drive, and died in 1947 at age 41 of an embolism, the complication of a fall he had at work. They had a daughter, Wilma Jacqueline Newbill who died in 1998 and a son, Richard James Ware

who died in 1991; and eight grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. Her second husband Richard Paul Simon died in 1998. She worked at Sears for three years, beginning two weeks after the death of her first husband, Bud Ware. Then she worked for 26 years (1950-1976) for Kroger in the meat department, mostly in Covington. She said she liked the company she worked for, the people she worked with, and her clientele. When asked what she thought were the important things in life, she said: family, friend, good health, and enough money to be secure. She said if she could change anything in the world, she would tell people to be more kind to each other. She thinks that with everyone trying to get material things and get ahead in life, results in a lot of jealousy and rudeness.

Thanks to JTM Food Group, local mothers will be better able to ensure the safety of their infants and young children. The local corporation recently presented a $1,000 check to Services to Adults and Youth Inc. to support the agency’s work with at-risk and first-time mothers throughout the Southwest and Three Rivers local school districts. STAY provides about 2,700 home visits each year in partnership with the Every Child Succeeds program, working to provide the best developmental and environmental start for children from prenatally up to age three while actively reducing infant mortality and child abuse. “We’re grateful for JTM’s generous donation as it will help us provide safety items for young and at-risk moms,” STAY Executive Director Ginny Hizer said. “Many of our client families are

below poverty level so, while they are aware of the importance of items like safety gates, smoke detectors and electrical outlet plugs, they simply cannot afford them. This gift will help us keep these infants and children safe in their own homes.” The non-profit accepts financial gifts as well as donations of diapers (especially sizes 3 and 4), baby wipes, formula and other baby items. “Some baby necessities aren’t allowed under the WIC or food stamps programs, which again cause an undue hardship on struggling families,” Hizer said. “Any support from the community, such as this wonderful gift from JTM, really makes a huge difference to our client families.” For more information about STAY, please visit or contact the agency at 513367-1441.
