BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
Westwood residents invited to ‘Deck the Hall’ By Kurt Backscheider
WESTWOOD — A group of
neighborhood organizations are starting what they hope will become a holiday tradition. The inaugural Westwood’s Deck the Hall celebration aims to bring the community together to usher in the holidays in the historic business district. The event is 2-6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 1, at the Westwood Town Hall Recreation Center, 3017 Harrison Ave. Nikki Mayhew, a Westwood Coalition and Westwood Works member helping to organize the festivity, said with the relocation of Madcap Puppets into the historic Cincinnati Bell building
and plans to revitalize the neighborhood business district it was time to host a holiday celebration in the heart of Westwood. “We thought this could be a great way to get people out into the community to get to know each other and celebrate all the positive activity in Westwood,” she said. “We want to renew the sense of pride in our neighborhood.” She said Westwood’s Deck the Hall will start with the jingle of Santa’s workshop from 2-4 p.m., which will include crafts for children ages 3 to 12 presented by the Cincinnati Recreation Commission. The Gamble-Nippert YMCA and the Broadhope Art Collective will supervise outdoor

crafts from 4-6 p.m. The crafts include ornament making, lumenaria making and creating wrapping paper. John Lewandowski, artistic director of Madcap Puppets, is looking forward to being involved in the event. “Westwood will host its first holiday gathering that will become an annual tradition,” he
said. “Westwood’s Deck the Hall will bring together local choirs, friends and families in a seasonal celebration filled with neighborhood pride and hot chocolate. It’s an opportunity to gather together and meet our neighbors to sing loud and clear that Westwood is a community that is moving forward.”
The holiday tree in front of Westwood Town Hall will be lit during a ceremony at the inaugural Westwood’s Deck the Hall celebration. The neighborhood holiday gathering takes place 2-6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 1. KURT BACKSCHEIDER/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

TRANSITION GAME A7 Elder seeks bounce back 2013-2014.
GREEN TWP. — It didn’t take very long for the new Mercy Health – West Hospital to deliver its first baby. The new full-scale hospital in Green Township opened to patients Sunday, Nov. 10, and four days later the hospital’s family birthing center welcomed its first newborn. Sebastian Ray Cole, son of West Chester couple Shawna Schroppel and Jason Cole, was born at 10:34 a.m. Wednesday, Nov.13. The little guy weighed in at 7.9 pounds and measured 19.25 inches long. “He was born a week early,” said Schroppel, noting her son’s original due date was Nov. 20. “He decided he was ready.” To celebrate the birth of the first baby born at the hospital, dozens of nurses, doctors and staff gathered in the main lobby to give the baby and family a warm send off when they were

plies, toys and clothes, and arranged for a limo to take the family home. “We’re just absolutely thrilled to welcome the first baby,” said Mercy Health spokeswoman Nanette Bentley. “It’s a huge milestone for us. We’re so, so happy.” Cole said he and his wife moved to West Chester about six months ago from Florida. In addition to Sebastian, they also have a young daughter, 2-yearold Cassidy. He said everyone they’ve met since relocating here has been warm and welcoming, and they plan to call Ohio home for quite a while. Schroppel said they chose to have their son at the new hospital because they heard Mercy Health was a family-oriented organization, and she really wanted to deliver in the new facility. The hospital lived up to her expectations, she said. See BABY, Page A3

ty pantry at Groesbeck United Methodist Church, 8871 Colerain Ave., say the the total families served may reach more than 200. Local schools as well as churches have donated food items and Carol says that’s what what made the Thanksgiving meals possible. One way to help restock them is a new partnership with Meijer’s Simply Give program. The campaign encourages customers to buy $10 Meijer food pantry gift cards, which are converted into Meijer food-only gift cards and given to a local pantry. In this case, SON Ministries will benefit from donation cards bought at the Stone Creek Meijer store through Jan. 4. If you want to provide a meal, pack a bag with three cans of corn, green beans, peas or carrots, three cans of fruit, one box instant stuffing, one box instant mashed potatoes, one can cranberry sauce, three cans of soup or beef stew, two boxes of macaroni and cheese, one box brownie mix, one jar or pack of turkey gravy and a can of sweet potatoes. Carol says cash donations that help buy gift cards to provide meat or poultry are always welcome. Volunteers, who sort donations, stock pantry shelves and help assemble holiday meal packages, are always welcome, too. SON will also help Christmas be bright for area youngsters, thanks to

a partnership with Nate’s Toy Box. In 2006, Colerain Township residents Gary and Pam Schroeder’s son Nate died in a car accident, and Nate’s Toy Box was established in their son’s memory. The program provides toys to needy children. The partnership with Nate’s Toy Box means the ministry can distribute food for families and gifts for Christmas. Carol said the Northwest Local School District is referring families for Christmas assistance. Families should contact their local school counselor if they are looking for help.
If you want to donate to Nate’s Toy Box, drop off unwrapped toys for boys or girls up to age 12. Gift cards to Target or WalMart – no more than $25 – can be donated for teens. SON Ministries is open Monday and Wednesday 10 a.m. to noon and Wednesday night from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. You can drop off donations at the SON Ministries office, in the lower level of Groesbeck United Methodist Church, 8871 Colerain Ave. You can call 385-1793 to make a donation or get information about the ministry.

‘A Christmas Carol’ returns to the Covedale edale, and music by Jeremy Helmes. “It will be one fun way to spend a Christmas season evening, and there is nothing more Christmas than ‘A Christmas Carol,” Perrino said. “This is certainly the most bubbly, bright and shiny version we’ve ever done, but don’t get me wrong it still has its scary parts.” He said the Covedale put on the show for five straight years during the holidays when the theater first opened, so after taking a seven-year break from presenting it they decided to freshen it up. Save for two actors from the original production, he said the cast is entirely new. The crew has also spent a great deal of time improving the set, he said. Made to look like the bitterly chilly streets of London at Christmas time in the 1840s, Perrino said the set features many

WEST PRICE HILL —
The Covedale Center for the Performing Arts is bringing back a holiday favorite this Christmas season. The West Side theater, 4990 Glenway Ave., is presenting its original musical production of “A Christmas Carol” from Friday, Nov. 29 through Sunday, Dec. 22. “This was a staple every holiday season in the early years of the Covedale Center, but we haven’t dusted it off since 2006,” said Rodger Pille, communications and development director for the theater group. “It’s a fun time to revisit Ebenezer Scrooge at the Covedale.” Based on the classic tale by Charles Dickens, the show features an original script and lyrics written by Tim Perrino, artistic director of the Cov-

tailed set for this show we’ve ever done. It’s going to look pretty spectacular,” he said. The set upgrades are a fitting complement to the talented performers and beautiful songs in the production, he said. Perrino sees it as an honor when families choose to spend some time at the theater and make it part of their holiday tradition to take in a show at the Covedale, he said. “I’ve talked to people after shows who have told me they come here because it makes their Christmas. That is big. “I just think people have come to expect a lot from our Christmas shows, and we try not to disappoint,” he said. Tickets are $24 for adults and $21 for senior citizens, students and groups. For a list of show dates and times, and to order tickets, call 241-6550.
Every family has its holiday traditions. At The Community Press, we annually recognize those folks who go out of their way to help a neighbor or friend. We call it “Neighbors Who Care,” and we need your help. If you know someone who deserves some praise for helping others, tell us about them. Send the information to rmaloney @communitypress.com or westernhills @communitypress.com. Put “Neighbors Who Care” in the subject line and include your name, community and contact information, as well as the nominee’s name, community and contact information.

Maloney’s Pub hosting Toys for Tots benefit By Kurt Backscheider email@example.com
DELHI TWP. — Cindy Tidwell will never forget how the U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program helped her when her children were young. “I didn’t have a lot of money, so someone suggested I reach out to the Marines’ Toys for Tots,” she said. “I was overwhelmed they could give me toys for my children for Christmas. It always warmed by heart.” Now she is giving back to the program. Tidwell, who tends bar at Maloney’s Pub in Delhi Township, is organizing her third annual benefit for Toys for Tots – her second one at Maloney’s. The fundraiser and toy collection for the Marine program is 2-8 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 1, at the bar, 408 Greenwell Road. West Siders are encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys for boys
and girls ages 6 months and older, or stop by to make monetary donations. “The Toys for Tots program is amazing,” Tidwell said. “Now that I’m on my feet and my children are grown all I want to do is pay the Marines back for what they did for me.” Kay Schimpf, co-owner of Maloney’s, said last year’s fundraiser was a great success and they want it to be bigger and better this year. She said they collected more than $2,000 worth of toys and about $2,000 in cash for the program last year. “There were two Marines here last year and they were impressed by the support and the closeknit community feeling in the bar. They promised they would be back this year,” she said. “We’re shooting for $6,000 this year.” Tidwell said the Cincinnati Bengals game will
be on the televisions and the event will feature door prizes, basket raffles, silent auctions, splitthe-pot and a bake sale. There will also be drink specials and discounts on appetizers. Schimpf said the fundraiser is geared toward all family members, with a special emphasis on the arrival of Santa Claus, his elves and the Grinch. Children will be able to get their photos taken with Santa and the Grinch. “It’s a really neat event,” she said. “I love the idea of giving back to the community and helping the kids.” Tidwell said the fundraiser has grown every year since she started it and she’s hoping people will help make this year’s as big as possible. “It’s amazing what the people on the West Side will do to help,” she said. For more information, call Maloney’s Pub at 9223156.

tiful has been working with teachers, building engineers and administration during the past two years to implement sustainable practices at school through an awardwinning program called Sustainability In Action. As many as eight schools participated in
SIA by recycling, composting, conserving energy and reducing water consumption. More than 245 tons of material, including food waste, was diverted from the landfill between January 2012 and May 2013. Due to the success of SIA, the district introduced recycling in all of its schools. By November, ev-
ery single classroom will have its own blue recycling bin, and the cafeterias will have large blue carts for recyclables. The district expects cost savings while diverting about 140 tons of garbage from the landfill, which amounts to about 1,530 pounds a day.
EXCITING NEW OFFERINGS FOR 2014-15 include the addition of an academic major in Athletic Training, the formation of a Marching Band and the addition of Women’s Lacrosse! ThomasMoreCollegeKY

SETON HIGH SCHOOL FIRST QUARTER HONOR ROLL SETON HIGH SCHOOL
The following students earned honors for the first quarter of the 2013-2014 school year.
Maggie Curoe of Anderson Township, Katie Colvin of Western Hills, Shawna Reilly of Sharonville and Kate Rankin of Anderson Township display their new hairstyles after donating an 8-10 inch ponytail to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Program. THANKS TO MISHA BELL
St. Ursula girls lose locks for a cause In observance of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, 67 St. Ursula Academy students participated in the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program, which provides free wigs to women battling cancer. The students agreed to cut their long locks and donate their hair to Pantene. Pantene, in turn, collects the ponytails, creates wigs, and ships them all over the world. In order to participate, the girls had to be willing to have at least 8 inches of their hair cut. In addition to the students, one teacher and one parent also agreed to have their hair cut. Twenty local hairdressers also donated their time to ensure the success of the event.
Junior Maggie Curoe participated in the event in honor of an aunt who is currently being treated for cancer. “It felt good to donate my hair for a wig for someone who was struggling like my aunt,” said Curoe when asked why she participated. Sophomore Shauna Reilly also agreed to have her hair cut. “The initial feeling when you cut 10 inches off your hair is to feel sad. But then, when you see a cancer patient with a wig you know that it was worth it. I miss my long hair, but I still have no regrets.” During the hair-cutting event, students heard from speakers who have battled cancer. Kimberly Listerman, re-
cent breast cancer survivor, offered the following words of advice to the St. Ursula students, “Girls, you need to take charge of your own health, make sure you go to your preventive checks on a regular basis and if something doesn’t feel right, check it out. It could save your life.” Seniors Mackenzie Dolle and Morgan Miller spearheaded the event following their studies in Mary Porter’s Contemporary Issues in Women’s Health Class with a goal of increasing awareness during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and providing a way for the St. Ursula Academy students to help those who are battling cancer.

McAuley students have a wild summer at the zoo Two McAuley High School students spent the past summer volunteering at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, each in different capacities. Freshman Nicole Armbruster was a “Green Teen.” She took guests around a garden next to the elephant exhibit and told them about going green, sharing information about the zoo’s wind turbine
and the other ways the zoo is environmentally responsible. Armbruster also helped out at the new zoo cafe, helping patrons sort their trash into three bins: compost, recycle and landfill. The daughter of Dan and Cindy Armbruster of Colerain Township, she wants to become a zookeeper eventually and plans to volunteer next summer. “I loved helping out,”
she said. For the second time, sophomore Zandrea Simpson was a “Volunteen” at the zoo for four 40-hour, week-long camps. Simpson’s tasks were to help with whatever the leader need, much like a teacher’s aide. She assisted with taking hikes, providing snacks, following maps and making crafts. “I want to gain experience
working with animals and people because I want to be a veterinarian someday and this volunteering helps me to reinforce this goal,” said Simpson. She also volunteers at Schnauzer Rescue Cincinnati with her mother during the school year, and plans to volunteer at the zoo again next summer. She is the daughter of Robert Simpson and Natosha Bridges of Monfort Heights.

FIRST SHOT AT 2013 BOYS BASKETBALL
Elder hopes experience gets them back to winning By Tom Skeen email@example.com
The basketballs have been rolled out for the 2013-14 boys’ season and here is a preview of how the teams in the Western Hills Press coverage area are shaping up:
The Panthers are coming off back-to-back losing seasons and will run out an experienced group under coach Joe Schoenfeld, led by seniors Devin Pike and Thomas Autenrieb along with junior Brad Miller. Miller averaged 10.6 points a game last season, while dishing out two assists and pulling down three rebound per game. Pike – who verbally committed to Louisville for football in July – gives the Panthers some size with his 6-foot-5 frame. He led the Panthers with 12.3 points per game and was second in the Greater Catholic League with 8.5 rebounds a game. Autenrieb is coming off a season where he averaged 5.7 points and 1.5 assists a game. “I think we will have a very good team this year,” Schoenfeld said. “We have several talented key-returning players who have a lot of varsity experience. We won’t be too tall, but should be smart, pretty fast and have some good shooters.” Look for a group involving Austin Cipriani, Michael Jones, Kyle Koppenhoefer and Justin Tebbe to compete in practice for some major playing time. “That competition should result in great practices and continued improvement for our team throughout the season,” the coach said. The Panthers’ schedule is one to keep on eye on. They begin the season Dec. 3 at home against Princeton followed by three more home games before being on the road for the next seven games, including a threegame stretch in Florida at the Ft. Lauderdale Beach Classic Dec. 26-28.
Jim Martin takes over as head coach of the Gators, who are coming off a 12-10 season where they placed third (8-4) in the Ohio Valley Athletic League. Leading scorer Christopher Martin was one of seven Gators who graduated after last season, but second-leading scorer Kenney Mil is back after posting13.2 points and 5.1 rebounds a game last season. A guy to keep your eyes on is freshman Anfernee Lipscomb. The 5-foot-9 point guard may be the fastest player in the OVAL and he will extremely difficult to defend. Junior Justin League will provide a presence in the middle with his 6-foot-0 frame, but will need to improve offensively after posting just two points and four rebounds a game last season. Junior guard DeVontae Cargile will be another scoring op-

tion after putting up nearly six points a game his sophomore season. “(We) will be quick and small but will work extremely hard,” Martin said. “(The) team has many new faces and very few who have played minutes at the varsity level. (We) should be (a) good shooting and penetrating team and will play tough defense. (Our) weakness is size and rebounding.” The Gators open up play Dec. 2 at home against SCPA.
Coming off a regional final appearance last season, the Lancers and coach Dan Fleming will have to overcome what is likely a season-ending injury to their best player in senior guard Jeff Larkin if they hope to make another deep postseason run. Larkin – who averaged more than 17 points per game last season - had surgery to repair a torn ACL Aug. 20 after injuring himself in a preseason football practice. On top of that, second-leading scorer Connor Speed graduated, which leaves the Lancers with nobody on the current roster that averaged more than 6.1 points per game last season. Jeff’s younger brother, Jeremy, returns for his sophomore year as Fleming’s leading scorer and a guy who plays ferocious defense, leading the Greater Catholic League South with more than two steals a game during his freshman campaign last season. Senior Tim Bell is an athletic
forward who scored in double digits five times last season, with two of them coming during the Lancers’ postseason run. Freshman C.J. Fleming is one to watch, and according to coach Fleming, he “has a chance to be really good.” Senior Blake Simpson (55) gives Fleming a defensive presence inside after recording 55 blocked shots last season, leaving him just 26 shy of Walt Gibler’s GCL South record of 76. The Lancers - ranked No. 2 in The Enquirer Division I preseason area coaches’ poll - open up play Dec. 6 against Roger Bacon.
Mike Price is back for his 24th season as head coach of the Highlanders and is looking to break a streak of five consecutive losing seasons. That won’t be easy after the graduation of Jake Richmond, who led the team and Greater Miami Conference in scoring last season with 22.1 points per game. Price is hoping for more balanced scoring, led by senior point guard Ben Laumann, who averaged nine points and two assists a game last season. Junior Caleb Cox will provide a presence in the post with his 6foot-5 build. Fellow junior Jason Walters and sophomore Michael Lake, who along with Cox didn’t see any varsity time last season, will be players to watch develop throughout the season. “I like our preseason im-

provement and work ethic,” Price said. “We should have more depth and balance in scoring than last year. Even though we will be very young, we have an enthusiastic and competitive attitude.”
Scott Martin graduated 11 players from his 2012-13 roster, according to the Greater Catholic League website. Rod Mills (Miami commit) headlines the roster this season after averaging 10.3 points and 5.1 rebounds a game last season for the 15-8 Bombers who finished third in the GCL South. St. X - ranked No. 9 in The Enquirer Division I preseason area coaches’ poll - opens its season Dec. 7 at Turpin. No other information was available before press deadline.
Daulton Picklesimer enters his third season as coach of the Yellow Jackets and will boast his most experienced roster yet with four returning starters. In fact, he returns five players who started in at least nine games for the 3-20 Yellow Jackets last season, led by starting guards Zach Fulton and Matthew Pittman. Fulton led the team with 8.4 points and 1.7 steals per game, while Pittman posted 5.7 points,
1.9 assists and 1.6 steals a game. Fulton scored in double digits in nine of his 18 games in which he appeared. Senior Justin Getz is fully healthy after missing the final eight games of last season and Picklesimer is looking for a big year from him. He showed flashes of brilliance last season, scoring seven or more points in four games, but also scored two or less points in seven of the 14 games he appeared in. Juniors Sean Engels and Nick Koehne round out the returning five. “We should be a more fastpaced, athletic team this year,” Picklesimer said. The Yellow Jackets start their season Nov. 29 at home against Norwood.
The Mustangs are led by junior guard Dejuan Sherman, who led the Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference with 4.3 steals per game last season and was second with 4.6 assists. Look for junior forward Malik Seldon and senior forward Al Chancelor to make an impact as well. “I like the fact that we are long and athletic,” coach Shawn Kerley told Gannett News Service. West High will open its season Nov. 30 at Taft.

High school GGCL Sheriff’s office hits home run with ‘Game with a Cop’ athletes make all star lists The Girls Greater Catholic League recently named all stars for the fall athletic season.
By Tom Skeen
HAMILTON CO. — The
“Game with a Cop” program is off to one heck of a start. The Bengals and Reds teamed up with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office to send 12 students from Cincinnati’s Northwest Local School District, two unpaid volunteer police officers and two volunteers from the school to the Hamilton County suite at Paul Brown Stadium to watch the Bengals’ 49-9 dismantling of the New York Jets Oct. 27. Sheriff Jim Neil, along with the architect of the program, Chief Deputy Mark Schoonover, introduced the program at a Nov. 4 press conference at PBS. Reds COO Phil Castellini, Bengals director of business development Bob Bedinghaus, Northwest Local School District Superintendent Mark Farmer and Colerain High School students Destyne Watson and Maiya Harrell joined the officers at the press conference. “It was a very fun experience getting to meet the police officers,” Harrell said. “Before I was always scared to talk to them, but now I know they are just people like us.” It was the first time either Harrell or Watson had been to a Bengals game. The idea stemmed from the “Shop with a Cop” program, where economically challenged children from all over the
Colerain High School student Destyne Watson, left, joins Reds COO Phil Castellini and Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil, as well as mascots Mr. Red Legs and Who Dey, at the “Game with a Cop” press conference Nov. 4 at Paul Brown Stadium.THANKS TO THE CINCINNATI REDS COMMUNITY FUND
county have the opportunity to shop at a local department store with a uniformed officer around Christmas time. “It was just a very good experience all they way round and it’s very important for the sheriff and I to foster relationships between the sheriff’s office and the communities in Hamilton County and I think this is one great way to do that,” Schoonover said, who spent roughly a half hour at the Oct. 27 contest along with Neil. Over the final four regular season games (and possibly a playoff game or two) at PBS, students from Winton Woods, Deer Park, Mount Healthy and Norwood high schools will attend games in the suite. “We love having these folks down here,” Bedinghaus said. “We have an excellent working relationship with the sheriff’s office and the Cincinnati Police Department and the opportunity to bring some
kids down here that would otherwise not have an opportunity to come to our game, much less have an opportunity to enjoy the game from a suite, is something that we embraced right away.” In April, the “Game with a Cop” program will provide tickets for 40 of the Reds’ 81 home games. “Really for us this was a no-brainer in terms of a program to get involved,” Castellini said. “… It’s just one of the many things we’re doing in the community that we’re proud to be involved with, especially with the underprivileged kids.” While the full program plans are yet to laid on paper in terms of more schools being involved, this is just the beginning for a program with a very bright future. “This is an important program to use in the sheriff’s office and it’s also important to the youth of Hamilton County,” Neil said.
Come down and join Paul Daugherty, his special guest and Enquirer sports personalities at Moerlein Lager House, Tuesday nights at 7pm.

Plan ahead – be an informed consumer As we grow older we are reminded of the importance of planning ahead – have a financial plan, a will, powers of attorney, etc... We are often not an informed consumer when a crisis of a fall or illness happens. The consequences can be great. We baby boomers love to develop plans for the seniors in our lives when dramatic changes occur. Yet, we are in denial about those same changes to be considered for ourselves. The greatest gener-
ation, our parents, could also be called the “make do” generation because they adjust to their circumstances as best they Jere can without McIntyre COMMUNITY PRESS any changes. Then a criGUEST COLUMNIST sis occurs, maybe a fall, disease or hospitalization, we often do not know what we need but do
Do you think President Obama will be able to keep his promise that Americans will be able to keep canceled health insurance policies for a year as companies and consumers adjust to the new demands of the health care law. Why or why not?
“If you go back in history, Social Security was established for when those reached retirement there would be some money there for you, not an amount to support you but, to have something. This Obama Care is the politicians answer to the problem with SS, the government will decide for you if you need heart surgery or just let you die off. There was money in SS and the politicians saw all this money and started all kinds of welfare programs with this money, now that SS is in trouble this is how your elected officials answer to the problem. “The hard fact of the matter is if you die because you didn’t have the heart surgery then the government doesn’t have to pay out SS to you or your family! Think about it, does Washington, D.C. really care about your retirement years? The answer is no! Do they have the same health insurance you are going to get? No! They will have a separate insurance than you and I! Think about this when you go to vote! If you don’t vote then shut up!” J.M.B.
“Can we all stop and take a breath right now? There has been so much bashing of the president that I don’t want to hear it any more. “I recognize that the new system is not working. Many times in my life I have experienced a computer program needing time to actually work. “I also recognize that many people are waiting to enroll in health care and that many people cannot afford to lose the health care they currently enjoy. I do believe this situation will improve, the president’s promise will be kept and we will all get what we need. Cooler heads must prevail.” E.E.C.
THIS WEEK’S QUESTION The Ohio House has passed a bill which would redefine self-defense and circumstances where the use of force trumps the duty to retreat to public settings, such as stores and streets. Under current law, residents need not retreat before using force if they are lawfully in their homes, vehicles or the vehicle of an immediate family member. Is this good legislation? Why or why not? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to westernhills @communitypress.com with Chatroom in the subject line.
“No he won’t be able to keep that promise! He never intended to keep it! It was a total lie and he knew it. “The purpose of Obamacare is a mass redistribution of wealth. It has nothing to do with health care reform. It has everything to do with government control and socialist policy. “Sadly, it must be conceded that the president of the United States of America is an arrogant, narcissistic, bold-faced liar.” R.W.J.
Nov. 13 question Several major retailers and malls will be open for holiday shopping throughout Thanksgiving Day. Is this a good idea and do you plan to plan to take advantage of the extended hours? Why or why not?
“There is no way I will do any shopping on Thanksgiving Day. I think people should be off and have the time to spend with their families. The owners and execs of the big chain stores won’t be working. Being closed a few days during the year won’t bankrupt them. If nobody would shop on Thanksgiving the stores would get the message. But with the big sales going on I’m sure the stores will be packed. I’m in my 60s and would like to see things the way they used to be.” R.E.L.
Where do we turn? The National Association of Homebuilders with assistance from senior groups has created special training and a designation called a certified aging in place specialist. These professionals are trained to assess the home and recommend alternatives (yes, you do have choices.) to you and your family about ways your home can be modified to be a safer place based on your specific need, the duration of your situation and budget.
Most will provide free or low cost assessment visits to your home to help you understand the risks and short and long term options. Many will also be aware of assistance programs to help share the cost. To locate a CAPS professional in your area, go to www.nahb.org/directory.aspx. Jere McIntyre is a certified aging in place specialist and director of Whole Home Modifications in Dent. He lives in Fort Mitchell, KY.
Keep dogs away from Thanksgiving table
CH@TROOM Nov. 20 question
know we need it now because someone is coming home from the hospital tomorrow or in a few days. The items needed to modify the home environment can be significant and may not be covered by insurance. These are not items we shop for everyday. We are not familiar with what options are available or what they should cost. Our need is immediate for the loved one and there are many decisions to be made in a short period of time.
There is no meal of the year that quite compares to that of Thanksgiving. As you’re preparing for your holiday, if you do not want your dog bumping you at the dinner table, the time to plan for success is now. Remember if a behavior reoccurs it is because it has been reinforced. So, if you know in advance that your dog’s bumping at the table behavior is very probable, here are a few ideas: You can rearrange what happens in the environment immediately before the behavior is set into motion to give less value to the bumping behavior and more value to resting. Some suggestions include satiating your dog before you sit down by feeding him in advance or redirecting his atten-
tion by giving him a tasty steak bone to chew on or a foraging toy that will keep his attention for awhile, or taking him for a long walk prior to the Lisa meal. Desatnik You can also COMMUNITY PRESS teach your dog GUEST COLUMNIST in advance an alternative behavior that will produce for him the same or more value than what he would get if he bumped you at the table – while removing any positive consequences to the bumping behavior. So, begin by teaching the alternative behavior (like sitting or laying down). Once on cue you can
shape the behavior for longer durations before delivering reinforcement. Then, you can cue him to do the wanted behavior before you sit down to a meal and reinforce it. At the same time, if he begs, you can simply push your plate in to the center of the table and turn your back to him while sitting. Practice. Practice. Practice. Always make the wanted behavior easier and more valuable than the unwanted behavior.
In addition to her public relations work, Lisa Desatnik is a pet trainer who uses positive strategies for teaching pets & their caregivers how to modify behaviors and solve problems. She lives in Dillonvale.
Who is really holding you back? Who is your worst enemy? Be prepared for a surprise. If you have read any of my previous writings you know that I believe that politics is destroying our traditional way of life along with our rights. I normally blame the Dumbocrats, but the Repugnicants are a close second. Both are more interested in their own tenure in control. Their latest bad idea is raising the minimum wage. When I was in business I saw the damage it did to working folks. In order to compensate for rising costs and taxes on the wages it was necessary to automate where possible and to import if not. Either way jobs were lost and many people found that the new higher wages bought less in the stores. If you are one of those unfortunates who are stuck in a low wage job, do you think a raise in the minimum wage will help you? If so, why not set the raise to $50 or even $200 per hour? Even if you have not studied economics, you know that prices would skyrocket and many people would lose any hope of earning a living through work. You would be at the mercy
of greedy politicians and their donors of both parties who would imprison you in poverty so that they could enjoy the Edward printed wealth Levy of inflated dolCOMMUNITY PRESS lars. GUEST COLUMNIST Who is your worst enemy? You face him every day. Just look in the mirror. You make decisions, both good and bad. You are faced with competition and have to decide if you will compete. Too many people avoid the competition and set a lower path in life for themselves. To some extent, the minimum wage is a determinant. It is easy to fall for the publicity about how unfair it is. In reality, it is a trial. Those who take a starter job and stay with the job until they acquire skills and responsibility have a much easier time finding the path up to more gainful employment and leadership positions. Once you have chosen this path,
you find that some parents, teachers, coaches and bosses will both encourage you and also to find ways to make you struggle with problems. You may dislike them for the aggravating problems at first. When you have the spirit to overcome the problems you will understand that they really have your best interests at heart. Be reassured that it is not an easy lesson. But, it is one of the most valuable ones you will master. It is that you must accept all challenges and prove to those who are evaluating you that you are willing to work hard to get ahead. In my business, the people who started at the bottom and proved their worth ended up in higher positions. Some made it to management levels. What ties working at minimum wage and your worst enemy is simply that many successful people start at the very bottom. Once they prove their worth, they gain both self respect but more importantly, that of their employers. This could be you. Edward Levy is a resident of Montgomery and a former college instructor.

Gluten-free recipes fill new ‘Holy Chow’ cookbook garlic and cook for only 2 or 3 minutes and be careful not to burn garlic. Add 2 teaspoons Kosher salt and 1 teaspoon pepper and simmer for another 2 or 3 minutes. Then add two 32 oz. cans whole tomatoes, crushed with your hands (or fresh tomatoes that are equal to the same amount). Cook for 5 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon dry basil or about 8-10 fresh basil leaves. Now add two 15 oz. cans tomato sauce and two 6 oz. cans tomato paste. Rinse out cans to get the most of the sauce. Measure out two cups of the juice/sauce water and add that to sauce. Simmer on low for 20 to 30 minutes for marinara sauce only, or 45 minutes to an hour if you are adding uncooked meatballs.
I got some unexpected exercise today. The wind was blowing so hard when I hung up the clothes that it literally blew most of them off the line right after I put the clothespins on the last of the socks. Now I didn’t mind chasing the dish towels across the field, but it was Rita a little Heikenfeld embarRITA’S KITCHEN rassing to see my “unmentionables” flying freely toward the road. My girlfriend called me later and said she was driving by when all this happened. “Made me chuckle,” she said. I guess it’s what we call a cloud with a silver lining.
Giovanna’s gluten-free meatballs and spaghetti
Instant vanilla sauce for bread pudding, cake, etc.
Enjoy meatballs and be gluten-free with Giovanna Trimpe’s recipe.THANKS TO GIOVANNA TRIMPE.
You know her as Joanne Trimpe, author of two Holy Chow cookbooks, the first of which is “Holy Chow” and the second, new one is “Holy Chow Gluten Free.” You may recognize her as a television personality and personal chef to Archbishop Dennis Schnurr. I know her as Giovanna, and we have become friends and colleagues. Giovanna decided to write another cookbook with glutenfree recipes because
unbelievably good. There’s a special section from friends and family. I contributed recipes for the dessert section. Every recipe has a photo along with a Bible quote relating to it, so you are feeding both body and soul. I chose Giovanna’s meatball and spaghetti recipe since that’s a universal favorite and a nice change from all the turkey we eat this time of year. Check out her website http://holychowbook.com/ for information to purchase the
Archbishop Schnurr is gluten intolerant, yet enjoys good food. “I was nervous at first. I didn’t know much about gluten intolerance so I knew I needed to learn how to cook gluten free, but with all the flavor of my original recipes,” she said. Well, Giovanna has nailed it. Her book has really good, doable gluten-free recipes, from appetizers like crab cakes that start your meal with flair to dinners that are entertainment worthy. Her eggplant Parmesan is
book. Also available at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Rookwood and sells for $16.95. Prepare meatballs 11⁄2 pounds of ground chuck 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1 ⁄2 teaspoon ground pepper 1 egg white 11⁄2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or 1 teaspoon dry 1 ⁄2 cup soy milk or any type lactose-free milk 11⁄2 cups bread crumbs
Now, this is where it is important to use gluten-free bread crumbs. You can buy frozen glu-
ten-free bread and, using your food processor, make 11⁄2 cups. Work the meatball mixture with your hands. Keep hands wet while rolling meat into about two-inch meatballs. Place meatballs on a large plate while you finish. This should yield about 18-20 meatballs. Prepare simple tomato sauce Put 1⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil in large sauce pan on medium heat. Stir in 1⁄2 cup chopped onions and cook for 3 minutes. Add 3 cloves minced

OK, trust me on this one. Instead of making vanilla sauce with eggs, etc. from scratch, just melt good quality vanilla ice cream slowly until it’s slightly warm. What you’ll wind up with is a not-too-thick sauce that is delicious on bread pudding or drizzled into hot chocolate. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

SCORE recognizes company’s growth WOW Window Boxes of Cincinnati is growing revenue faster than expected. The five-year-old company was SCORE’s July Client of the Month. Revenue was $400,000 last year and is on track to hit $750,000 this year. The Western Hills-based com-
pany has eight employees. The business run by mother-and-son partners Sue and Bret Schneider designs floral and plant window boxes and containers for businesses and homes, changing out designs each season. WOW custom-builds each client
window box, services each box, and provides an automatic drip irrigation system to keep plantings fresh and vibrant. “Your home is your biggest purchase and window boxes increase your curb appeal,” said Bret Schneider of Newport. “The more pleasing you
can make your home or business, the more welcoming it is, and more people are attracted to it.” Seventy-five percent of their business is residential, and about 25 percent is commercial, Schneider said. The Schneiders began working with SCORE counselor Dave Harris of West Chester about three years ago and meet with three or four SCORE team mentors monthly to learn more about marketing, business operations and planning. “The biggest area Dave and SCORE counselors has helped us with is focus,” said Schneider. “They help us focus on planning, developing our business model and determining which way to go to focus on our core competencies. They ask questions we might not have considered and provide a valuable perspective.” Harris said when he first met with the Schneiders, he was impressed that they knew

what they wanted to do and what product they wanted to sell. “They also knew who would buy their product and what it would take to sell the business,” he said. “We spent a lot of time brainstorming how they could reach their preferred customers with an effective marketing mes-
sage and how they could use their current customers to help. We also encouraged them to have a business plan and to change it when they found programs that worked or didn’t work.” The Schneiders plan to eventually franchise the business, so were eager for different ideas and opinions, said Schneider. “Our counselor and others have provided us with invaluable direction and insight. SCORE is like a one-stop shop for helping build a small business.” SCORE-Cincinnati is the volunteer arm of the Small Business Administration. Its 100 counselors are working and retired executives who provide free marketing, finance and operations counseling and no-cost and low-cost seminars for small business owners and new entrepreneurs.

Golf outing supports reading programs The Literacy Network hosted its sixth annual Sunset and Moonlight Golf Outing in August at Delhi Hills Par 3. The event raised $6,000 in support of the non-profit’s adult and children’s reading programs. For the first time the outing offered Sunset and Moonlight tee times, with 17 foursomes participating in a evening. The course was glowing with golf balls and the love of literacy, as Delhi Par 3 celebrates their 55th year of business. Throughout the night, there were raffle tickets sold, splitthe-pot, and a grill-out for the players to enjoy. Donated prizes included a football signed by the Cincinnati Bengals’ Receiver AJ Green, baseball signed by Cincinnati Reds’ Jay Bruce, Reds tickets, and many more! The highlight of the event was when adult literacy student, Djime Cissoko, silenced the crowd as he spoke to them about what the program means to him and how thankful he was for the golfer’s support. Cisso-
ko is in a class at the Literacy Network that utilizes OrtonGillingham multi-sensory instruction to help adults who read below a fourth-grade level. In 2012, the Adult Basic Reading Program served 76 Greater Cincinnati adults in five classes. “I came to find help with my reading and because of this class, I learned to read. I still have a lot more work to do and further to go, but I plan to keep working and keep going on and on,” Cissoko said. Literacy Network president Kathy Ciarla said, “Looking around at the crowd as Djime spoke was very touching. It is nice to share with them firsthand how much their participation, time, and support means to our students and show them the lives they touch.” After a two-hole tie breaker, Jerry and Amy Luebbers and Tom and Stephanie Schiller won the sunset outing. Tim and Eileen Borrows and Lauren and Adam Boettcher won the challenging moonlight outing!

Bakeries’ gingerbread cookie sales help kids Members of the Greater Cincinnati Retail Bakers Association make gingerbread men cookies and donate a portion of the sales from these seasonal specialties to help children who have physical problems or emotional concerns due to the loss of someone in their family Buy a Kid, Help a Kid, No Kidding is the slogan chosen by Tom Davis, of Regina Bakery in North Bend, chairman of this event in its 22nd year. The size and price of these cookies vary from bakery to bakery, but the spirit prevails in all as no one wants to see a child hurting.
Bakers in the Cincinnati area divide the proceeds from their cookie sale between Kindervelt, which provides stateof-the-art equipment for Children’s Hospital, and Fernside, which has groups all over the city and is an affiliate of Hospice of Cincinnati. You can go into any of the participating stores and purchase the decorated gingerbread kids, or you can order them specially decorated with your child’s or grandchild’s name written on them. “I believe it is important that we donate some of our re-
sources to charity, and there is not better way than to help hurting children,” said Gary Gotttenbusch from Servatii Pastry Shop, and spokesman for the Greater Cincinnati Retail Bakers Association. The following bakeries will have the gingerbread kids on sale from Dec. 5-Dec. 31: » Harrison Home Bakery – Harrison » Graeter’s Bakeries – all locations » Bonomini Bakery – Northside » Little Dutch Bakery – Mt. Healthy
» Wyoming Pastry Shop –Wyoming » Regina Bakery – North Bend and Cheviot » Patricia’s Wedding Cakes – Reading » Servatii Pastry Shop – all locations » Fantasy In Frosting – Newport, Ky. » Schmidt’s Bakery – Batesville » Bonnie Lynn Bakery – Blue Ash For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 859-727-4146
