In a span of five days, Clermont County Commissioner Archie Wilson resigned and commissioners Bob Proud and Ed Humphrey named an interim commissioner to fill the position until a replace-

ment is appointed. Clermont County Commissioner Archie Wilson announced his resignation from the board Feb. 2, the day after he was absent from a regular session where business could not be conducted due to the lack of a quorum. Commissioner Bob

Archie Wilson resigns Proud was the only board member present at the Feb. 1 session. Commissioner Ed Humphrey was absent after being hospitalized to receive chemotherapy treatments for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. “We cannot act on any official business,” Commissioner Proud announced alone at the session. Humphrey knew he would be absent from the session so he had his doctor send a note to the board ex-

plaining his absence. “If there are two commissioners not available and their Wilson physicians provide a letter to the county the coroner can step in and do business,” Humphrey said. Clermont County Coro-

Batavia students raise more than $5,000 for Special Olympics Forty-eight participated in Polar Plunge at Joe’s Crab Shack BY KRISTIN BEDNARSKI Sun staff

It may have been a cold and rainy day Feb. 4, but that didn’t stop 48 Batavia High School students from jumping into a pool full of ice-cold water during the annual Polar Plunge to benefit Special Olympics. The students, who are all

part of Business Professionals of America Legal Management program at Batavia High School, won the award for the largest school group to participate in the plunge and raised more than $5,000 for Special Olympics. “Some kids you would never think would do this want to,” Angie Kovacs, legal management teacher,

said. “They really get excited about it. They raise money themselves and they have to get sponsors just like a walk-a-thon.” Kovacs, who also participated in the plunge, said the club contributes to Special Olympics as part of their service project each year. She said this is the second year the club has participated in the Polar Plunge, which is Special Olympics’ largest fund-raising event. “It’s really fun,” Hunter Meadors, president of the

BPA club, said. “We try to get the whole BPA program involved. It is a really good cause and we love doing it.” Meadors said students enjoy the participating in the plunge not only because it is a fun and laid-back event, but also because of how important the cause is. “When you think about that, and the money you’re raising, you know you are doing good,” Meadors said.

Two Republican candidates for Clermont County prosecutor are on the ballot for the March 6 primary election. Incumbent prosecutor Don White has held the position for the last 23 years, while his opponent Vince Farris is looking to be elected after spending several years as assistant prosecutor and also working as a defense attorney. “I was in the prosecutor’s office in the 1980s,” Faris said. “I enjoyed the work very much and would like the opportunity to run the office.” Faris graduated from the University of Kentucky in 1976 and the University of Toledo College of Law in 1980. He became assistant prosecutor in 1981 and joined the law firm Walker, Bradford and Hill in 1987. He formed his private practice, Faris and Faris, with his wife in 2006, and has also served as assistant public defender. Faris said that in his career he has handled felony, misdemeanor, and traffic cases and has been involved in successful prosecutions including rape and murder cases, drug offenses, bur-

More than a dozen West Clermont middle school students and parents attended a Plan the Way workshop Jan. 25 at the Union Township Civic Center to help them get a head start on college planning. Plan the Way Foundation, a non-profit organization, partnered with both West Clermont and Milford local school districts to provide a series of workshops for students and their parents. “Too often families didn’t have a plan for how they were going to pay for college and the students didn’t know what they were going to do,” Chris Candelaresi, partner and educator for Plan the Way, said. “The workshops are very beneficial and there is a lot of information there.” Chris and his father, Tom Candelaresi, first developed the idea for Plan the Way as a for-profit organization, but soon decided instead of

just being consultants they wanted to work with local districts and offer students and parents helpful tips for the planning process. “We are trying to work with different schools and churches,” Chris said. “Being able to reach out and educate families preparing to go through this is the goal.” The workshops are designed to cover many facets of the college planning process, from knowing what classes to take to affording college once the time comes. The first workshop in the series for the West Clermont district was held on Jan. 25 highlighted the beginning of the college planning process. “People think they can wait until junior or senior year to start worrying about college and you can’t,” Tom said. He explained students should prepare for college as early as middle school, by thinking about their in-

terests and taking classes that will help them reach their goals. He explained that parents should begin looking at how much college will cost and decide how much they can afford. “I encourage you to get involved now through high school,” Tom told students. “Life is going to change

drastically over the next six years.” Tom discussed the benefits of college and also discussed the growing competition to get accepted to college. He presented statistics on how much college graduates make, and discussed the college application process.

“I think it will make them more aware of resources and give them a network of people to talk to,” Tanny McGregor, secondary curriculum supervisor for the district, said. McGregor said Plan the Way worked with teachers See College, Page A8

As it stands right now, it is not legal to keep chickens within Batavia village limits. But there is a move afoot to change that. Mike Kinner, a former village zoning administrator and current business owner, has written an ordinance that would permit, and regulate, the keeping of chickens in the village. “Frankly, what I’m proposing is a very restrictive ordinance,” Kinner said. “It defines very well the housing and control of them, so you can’t go wrong with them even if you’re a novice.” Kinner was motivated to

push for the ordinance by his daughters’ 4-H project, which involved the raising of chickens. “We had 20 chickens and not a single neighbor complained to us or the village,” Kinner said. “Until it was brought up in the planning commission, no one except our neighbor behind us knew that we had them.” Kinner’s daughters, Clare and Grace, spoke to the planning and zoning board before the proposed ordinance was voted on, and they have started a petition drive to support it. Kinner says that several residents have also expressed frustration at not being allowed to keep

chickens at their homes. “People have come up to me and asked why they can’t have a few laying hens,” he said. Kinner said that prior to 1993, residents were permitted to keep chickens, and it is not uncommon for cities to permit the raising of chickens. “You can keep chickens in lots of major metropolitan cities,” Kinner said. “Virtually every other city and a lot of them are far more broad in their ordinances.” Kinner’s ordinance has been approved by the planning and zoning board, but has yet to be voted on by the village council.

Free tax preparation clinic to be held Workforce One of Clermont County is hosting a free tax preparation clinic on Saturday, Feb. 25, between 10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. The clinic will be held at Workforce One of Clermont County, located at 756 Old SR 74 in Union Township. Appointments and walkins are welcome. “Trained counselors and enrollment specialists with the Ohio Benefit Bank (OBB) will be here to help low and moderate-income citizens secure tax credits and benefits they are eligible for, but may not know about,” said Ted Groman with Workforce One of Clermont County. The OBB estimates that over $2 billion in tax credits and other supports (most federally funded) go unclaimed by Ohioans who do not apply. To expedite the application process, Groman encourages citizens to bring the following: W-2 or 1099’s or any other income statement, Social Security numbers for all family members, deduction and credit information (tuition bills, child care expenses, etc.), and direct deposit information for savings or checking accounts. “This free tax preparation clinic is available to most

households with an annual income of less than $60,000 a year,” said Sarah Douglas with the Ohio Association of Second Harvest Foodbanks. “We anticipate tax refunds will

be available in about a week.” Call (513) 250-5141 to make an appointment for the free tax help at the Workforce One of Clermont County clinic.

Members of the Batavia High School Business Professionals of America Legal Management program await the start of the 2012 Polar Plunge outside Joe's Crab Shack in Bellevue, Ky. The group raised more than $5,000 for Special Olympics during the fund-raiser.

Plunge: Money raised for charity students, raised money by getting people to sponsor them for the plunge. All together Students raised more than $5,000 for Special Olympics and came in fifth out of 104 teams for money raised. “At first it was hard,” Sierra Donaldson, a sophomore, said about raising money. Donaldson said it became easier though, especially after she researched Special Olympics and was able to explain to potential sponsors what the organization does and how a donation could help. “It makes me feel really good because I know we raised a lot of money for a good cause,” Donaldson said about the end result. Donaldson, and the rest of the BPA students, gathered to celebrate their efforts and took the plunge at 11 a.m. Feb. 4 at Joes Crab

Shack in Bellevue, Ky. In teams of four, students leapt into the ice-chilled pool and exited as quickly as possible to nearby heated tents where they were able to change back into warm clothing. The cumulative efforts of organizations, businesses and schools across Ohio and Kentucky, including Batavia High School BPA and a team from Clermont County Juvenile Court, raised $120,926 for Special Olympics this year. The organization is the world’s largest program of sports, training and competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, and the money raised at the plunge will help support the efforts of Special Olympic athletes in Kentucky and Ohio. “Getting this many people together for one cause is special,” Meadors said

Crush 9 of the cookies to fine crumbs in food processor. Set aside. If you want, cookies can be finely crushed in a plastic bag using a rolling pin. Crush rest of cookies. Place in bowl and add cream cheese. Mix until well blended. Roll into 1” balls. You’ll get a little over 3 dozen balls. Dip in melted chocolate. Use two forks to dip and let excess drip off before placing on sprayed baking sheet or foiled covered and sprayed baking sheet. Immediately sprinkle with leftover crumbs so that crumbs adhere before chocolate coating sets up. Refrigerate until firm. Store in refrigerator up to a couple of weeks.

Country Kitchen Wisdom • Truffles may be formed and placed in refrigerator, covered, for up to a week before dipping in chocolate. • Try dipping some in white chocolate coating. • Instead of cookie sprinkles, sprinkle on tiny red or white sprinkles.

After Newt Gingrich beat Willard “Mitt” Romney in South Carolina by 47 percent to 34 percent, Romney beat Gingrich in Florida by 46 percent to 32 percent. The “Super Pac” supporting Gingrich broadcast negative ads against Romney in South Carolina, and the “Super Pac” supporting Romney (which is run by former Romney staffers) and Romney’s campaign spent at least $16 million in Florida, nearly all of it on negative ads against Gingrich. It seems that the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision has changed the dynamics of political campaigns, and the change is for the worse. Romney spent 50 percent more than all the Republican presidential candidates combined spent in the Florida primary in 2008. At least seven individuals gave donations of $1 million each to Romney’s “Super Pac,” including multibillionaire Wall Street hedge fund

The law also requires that these drugs be made available to employees with no co-pay. For many people in this country, that’s not a problem. For Roman Catholics, it is a problem – a big one.

I've known and respected Don for more than thirty years and have seen that he has firm knowledge of the law, the highest ethics, and – most important – that he has the courage of his convictions.

Over the years, our township has sought legal advice on topics ranging from real estate and zoning to contracts and personnel matters. The attorneys whom Prosecutor Don White has assembled and managed in his Civil Division, with their wealth of experience in day-to-day workings of local government, have been uniformly knowledgeable, responsive and helpful.

Health-care rule puts our religious liberties at risk The Framers of the U.S. Constitution were religious men, but they were also practical. They knew that religion and political power had to be kept separate because putting them together has repeatedly caused societies to destroy themselves. James Madison – author of the First Amendment to the Constitution, which guarantees the freedom to worship – knew that. So did Thomas Jefferson, who wrote of a “wall of separation between church and state.” They knew their history, and they understood human nature. But President Obama seems to lack the respect and sensitivity that Madison and Jefferson had for this subject. Imbedded in the Affordable Care Act, the formal name of the health-care law pushed by the president, is a requirement for employers that provide health insurance to their employees to obtain sterilization pro-

Humble beginnings teach lifelong lessons of gratitude My family moved six times before I started first grade and seven more by the time I graduated from high school. Mom and my Stepdad were gypsies of sorts, barely holding body and soul together as we moved from one country shack to the next, like boll weevils looking for a home. As I recall, our frequent moves were not to skip out on the rent, although I think that happened a time or two. Mostly, Mom just had a recurring itch to move and when the itch struck there was no resting until we had found a new place to live. Despite the instability, moving to a new place was always an adventure. While Mom and Dad unpacked our meager possessions, we kids would launch an exploratory expedition of the countryside surrounding our new home. Like Lewis and Clark in their pursuit of a northwest passage, we would spend days trekking over, around, and through the woods, creeks, and fields of our new territory. We would name interesting spots along the way, as we mapped the terrain in our minds to return another day. We were respectful trespassers but in truth we regarded the new territory as ours to roam.

GEORGE BROWN Each place where we lived was given a name; usually the last name of the landlord or some identifying characteristic – names like the Red Brick, Leply’s, Bell’s, Ball’s Crossing, the Ridge, Dow and Roy’s, New Lex, Stringfellow’s,

“T

o this day all of my childhood memories are categorized and filed in my mind under the names of the places where we lived.” the Brokaw Road, and so on. To this day all of my childhood memories are categorized and filed in my mind under the names of the places where we lived. My earliest memories are filed under “the Red Brick”, where we lived when I turned three. I had just been returned to Mom and my

new Stepdad from the foster home where I had lived for the previous two years, while my older brothers and sister lived in the children’s home. I will save the story and circumstances of that period of my life for another time. Of all the places we called home, Dow and Roy’s was, beyond all doubt, most deserving of the moniker, shack. Dow and Roy Bouchard were two of Mom and Dad’s bar buddies. Mom had managed to retrieve (kidnap would be more accurate) my three older brothers from the care of our Father’s relatives while he was serving overseas in the military. She had us all together, but feeding and clothing six kids between the ages of 6 and 16 spelled poverty with a capital P, which helps explain why Dow and Roy allowed us to be squatters in the oneroom shack they owned along the Licking River in Newark, Ohio during the summer of 1952. Roy and Dow’s shack stood in a field at the end of Elizabeth Street between the Owens Corning glass factory and the levy that keeps the Licking River within its banks. My guess See Brown, Page A9

Supreme Court deals with retroactive classification This case involved a company called Aaron Rents, Inc. (ARI) which challenged an order from the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation over the issue of workers’ compensation premiums for its employees. ARI specializes in lease-to-own sales of consumer items. When the company established operations in Ohio, its principal merchandise was furniture. For purposes of workers’ compensation premiums, every business is classified by degree of hazard and placed into a corresponding category, commonly referred to as manual classification. These classifications have been established by

PAUL PFEIFER OHIO SUPREME COURT JUSTICE the National Council on Compensation Insurance and have assigned rates that reflect the risk of injury due to the hazards associated with that individual pursuit. The total payroll in each of the classifications assigned to a given employer is a key element in determining the amount of premium that the employer pays to secure workers’ compensation coverage. Initially the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation assigned ARI two classifications. The first was number 8044, which indicates “Store: Furniture.” The second number was 8810, which denotes “clerical workers.” In listing its payroll, ARI, in turn, placed each employee in one of those two categories.

In 2006, the Bureau conducted a routine audit of ARI’s records. The auditor apparently concluded that ARI had incorrectly listed many of its employees as number 8810 clerical workers. The auditor, however, did not inform ARI, which was contrary to normal procedure. In addition, ARI wasn’t given a copy of the audit report because the Bureau found that the report, for several reasons, “did not pass the audit quality review process.” Unaware of the audit, ARI continued to classify its employees in the same manner for the next two years. In March 2008, the Bureau again audited ARI, examining records from July 2004 through the end of 2007. At some point during that time, ARI’s emphasis had shifted from furniture to consumer electronics. As a result, the Bureau substituted a new number See Pfeifer, Page A9

40 Years Ago February 10, 1972 CIP grants right-of-way for access to college Community Improvement Programs, Inc. will grant right-ofway for an access road to the University of Cincinnati “at no cost to the taxpayers.” At the same time, it was learned, CIP is asking a contractual concession from the University in exchange for an easement needed to complete access to the new campus near Batavia. The right-of-way granted the county totals 14.7 acres, and is near Ohio 32, downhill from the campus site. The easement in question is at the top of the hill, adjacent to the campus site. The campus is surrounded by land owned by CIP, and the University needs the easement to build an extension from the campus to the county-built access road. CIP had originally asked the county for $45,821 for the rightof-way. At that time, D. Gerald Lach, CIP president, said the figure represented the cost of the land to CIP, and that the company “couldn’t settle for less than cost.” The county commissioners offered CIP $10,000 for the right-ofway. The offer was formally withdrawn in a letter from the commissioners dated Jan. 28. Lach answered Feb. 4, saying CIP has always tried to act “on the basis of what is best for the general welfare of Clermont County”, and that CIP will grant the rightof-way to the county. Businessmen oppose plan for new firehouse The Batavia Businessmen’s Association has voted to circulate petitions protesting the raising of the old Batavia Fire House and construction of a new fire house on the same site. Leroy Creager, president, who initiated the petitions, said he feels tax monies which were approriated in the November, 1971 election should not be spent to erect a new building for housing the fire equipment at the proposed cost of $65,000 on a building site that is “outdated in regards to limited parking and future expansion. With the destruction of the present building costing several thousand dollars and the estimated value of the existing building being $20,000, this would then bring the final cost to an excess of $85,000 for only an additional

1670 square feet, Creager pointed out. The Businessmen’s Association is recommending construction of a new building on a site which could be available from the state, or another property which would have ample parking and unlimited room for expansion at little or no cost to the taxpayers.

25 Years Ago February 12, 1987 Ringland recomended for US District Court A committee of the Ohio Republican Party has recommended three Common Pleas Court judges from central and southern Ohio for possible appointment to a vacancy on the U.S. District Court in Columbus. The Committee on Appointments and Endorsements interviewed 13 judges and attorneys who were interested in the appointment to replace Judge Joseph P. Kinneary, who assumed senior status on the court in January. Candidates recommended are Judge George C. Smith of the Franklin County Common Pleas Court; Judge Robert D. Nichols of the Madison County Common Pleas Court; and Judge Robert P. Ringland of the Clermont County Common Pleas Court.

EPA halts construction of CECOS waste cell A Clermont County citizens advisory group has accomplished a portion of goals it outlined at a meeting last week in Williamsburg, with the state Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announcing this week that it would not allow construction to be completed at the most recent storage cell at CECOS International in Jackson Township. The Clermont County Citizens Advisory Committee for Hazardous waste said at last week’s meeting that it would ask the state to discontinue CECOS’s plans to add up to six more cells at its Aber Road location. There are at present, 10 cells at the site which are in use. The advisory group said the recommendations came after a year of study at evaluation of the hazardous waste landfill. “This is not the right time to consider the continuation of the program, when there is no under-

standing of the geological conditions,” citizens’ advisory group spokesperson Steve Wharton told the estimated 25 in attendance at a public meeting in Williamsburg last week.

15 Years Ago February 13, 1997 Music programs offered at college Clermont College and the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music will offer two music programs for children in 1997. A music theater camp and a children’s chorus will be available at Clermont College with CCM providing instruction. “Summer Shenanigans: Music Theater Camp for Students” will be July 14 through 25 at Clermont College for students, 8 through 14. Limited to 60 children, the allday camp will include instruction in stage makeup, set construction, costume making, script, dance, song and show rehearsal. Students will perform a musical on the final weekend of the camp. Auditions for the camp will be in mid-April. The Calico Chorus, to begin in the fall, will meet once a week with a conductor, assistant conductor and accompanist from CCM. The mixed chorus, for students in fourth through 10th grades, will meet from 10 a.m. to noon Saturdays at Clermont College for 30 weeks.

Kids love denists kindergarten decor Imagine a world where children don’t want to leave the dentist’s office. Step inside the Pediatric Dental Clinic in Batavia Township where the walls are painted a cherry pink and televisions hang in every treatment room. “We had a patient last week that didn’t want to leave--she wanted to stay and watch cartoons,” said Jim West, director of Clermont County Community Services, which operates the clinic. “That’s a real switch.” Everything at the dental clinic is aimed at making the child and parents comfortable and relaxed, and at making each visit a quick one. Dentist William Lippert, a graduate of Ohio State University’s dental school, said he has improved equipment and service with that goal in mind.

Q: What is a debt settlement company? A: A debt settlement company offers to help you negotiate a settlement of your debts with your creditors (often credit card companies). The company gathers information from you about your debts, collects money from you and makes proposals to your creditors to resolve your debts. Q: I received an unsolicited call from a debt settlement company. How did the company get my name? A: If you have been

LAW YOU CAN USE OHIO STATE BAR

sued for nonpayment of debts, the company likely found your name through court records, which are generally available online. Q: What do debt settlement companies charge? A: They often charge an upfront and/or a monthly fee in addition to the money you give them so they can negotiate with your credi-

tors. Q: What should I know before hiring a debt settlement company? A: You should thoroughly investigate any debt settlement company before you sign on the dotted line. Be aware that, while your money is being held by the debt settlement company, interest will continue to be charged on the bills you owe your creditors, so any settlement the company makes with creditors on your behalf will be made on a larger debt balance. Signing up with a debt settlement company does not

stop a creditor from filing suit or from reporting your account to the credit bureau as past due. Also, if you have already been sued, the debt settlement company cannot stop or help you settle your lawsuit. The lawsuit will continue, often leading to a judgment against you and garnishment of your wages. Debt settlement company advisors are not attorneys, so they cannot appear in court on your behalf. Q: Are there any alternatives to hiring a debt settlement company? A: There are several

alternatives. First, you can negotiate with your creditors yourself. Or, if you would like assistance with these negotiations, you can go to a nonprofit organization. For example, the Consumer Credit Counseling Service (known nationally as Apprisen Financial Advocates) has offices in most areas of Ohio and does not charge any fees for debt management and counseling services. You can contact this organization by calling (800) 355-2227 or by visiting its website at www.apprisen.com. Finally, you can consult with an at-

torney to review all of your debt settlement options, which could include bankruptcy. This “Law You Can Use” column was provided by the Ohio State Bar Association. It was prepared by attorney Terry D. Zimmerman of the Akron firm of Kaffen & Zimmerman. Articles appearing in this column are intended to provide broad, general information about the law. Before applying this information to a specific legal problem, readers are urged to seek advice from an attorney.

Vote Faris for prosecutor Dear Editor: It is a pleasure to give my wholehearted endorsement of Vincent Faris for the office of Clermont County Prosecuting Attorney and to recommend him for consideration in the upcoming primary election. I have observed Vince Faris as a fellow practicing attorney in this community for over 20 years. During the years he and I worked together in the firm of Walker, Bradford & Hill, my interaction with Vince gave me insight into his knowledge of the law, the diligence and effectiveness with which he advocated for his clients, and his love for his chosen profession. It is important to him that he is also defined as a devoted family man. In short, Vince is a good man, a fine lawyer, and he will bring the qualities of integrity and honesty to the office of Prosecuting Attorney. Speaking as a senior member of the legal community, it is time for a change in the office of Prosecuting Attorney. Please vote for Vincent Faris on March 6, 2012 – he will make an outstanding prosecutor. Lawrence Walker Attorney at Law Batavia

Vote Uecker for senate Dear Editor: Joe Uecker’s experience as a Miami Township Trustee in Clermont County and his years of service as Administrator of the County Engineer’s office provided an excellent background and understanding of the issues that local governments face each day. During his tenure as State Representative for the 66th House District Joe has put this experience to work on behalf of local government, advocating for townships to set speed limits on township roads, and allowing townships to use funds to repair roads and bridges, and Joe has supported other initiatives to support and protect the rights of local governments. Joe is now running to serve as our Senator in Ohio’s 14th Senate District. With his years of experience in the State House, Joe is well equipped and prepared to serve. Experience counts.

Please join me in voting for Joe Uecker on March 6. Jim Sauls Batavia Township Trustee

Support Uecker for Ohio senate Dear Editor: Please support Joe Uecker for the Ohio State Senate, 14th District. Mr. Uecker has provided exemplary leadership and representation for the citizens of Clermont County during his tenure in the Ohio House of Representatives. Mr. Uecker has extensive state and local legislative experience to draw upon. Joe Uecker has advocated conservative, fiscally responsible principals of governance throughout his legislative tenure in Columbus. He is a particularly valuable representative for our county relative to transportation / infrastructure resource investments. Clermont County needs highway transportation upgrades and improvements to insure safe, efficient, and effective transport of people, goods, and services throughout this community! The ability to secure transportation resources requires the knowledge, diplomacy, and tenacity that Joe Uecker can and will provide our community while remaining an advocate for fiscal responsibility and limited government. Chris Smith Union Township

We need Joe for senate Dear Editor: Joe Uecker has deep roots in Clermont County, having served as a Miami Township Trustee and as Administrator for the County Engineer's Office. Joe knows our issues and has the legislative experience to represent us well as State Senator for the 14th District. As our State Representative for much of Clermont County for nearly eight years, Joe has consistently advocated for limited spending and smaller government. His family values and credentials as a true conservative are impeccable. Joe's legislative experience has included service on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, the State and Local Governments Committee, and the Natural Resources Committee. Joe is well versed in the legislative process and will be able to quickly apply this experience as our Senator. I urge you to join me in voting for Joe Uecker for State Senate. Tom Rocklin Milford

Support Faris for prosecutor Dear Editor: Please join me in supporting Vince Faris’ campaign to become the next Prosecuting Attorney of Clermont County, Ohio. Vince has pledged to serve as a full-time prosecutor representing only the citizens of this county. I am absolutely convinced that our county needs and deserves a prosecutor whose only interest will be those of the citizens of this county. I have practiced law in this county for nearly 50 years, serving as County Treasurer since 1988. I have witnessed firsthand the tremendous growth that our county has experienced. There are unprecedented legal demands that have been placed upon not only public office holders, but also on our friends and neighbors throughout the criminal justice system. To meet the demands of this growth requires a prosecutor who will devote all of his time and energy protecting the interests of the citizens of this county. Vince has practiced law in this county since 1981. He served as Assistant Prosecuting Attorney from 1981 to late 1987. He successfully prosecuted scores of serious felony cases including murder, child and adult sex abuse, burglary, drug trafficking and a full range of other serious felonies and misdemeanors. Since 1987 Vince has maintained a multifaceted private practice expanding his skills, knowledge and experience that will serve this county well as our next prosecutor. He has rightfully earned his reputation for adhering to the highest ethical and professional standards in all aspects of his legal career. Please join me in electing Vince Faris as our next Prosecutor. J. Robert True Clermont County

Support Uecker for senate Dear Editor: I'm supporting Joe Uecker for State Senate Joe has been a good friend since we were LEAD Clermont classmates back in 1993. I've especially admired Joe's commitment to his wife, Patti, and their children and grandchildren. For Joe, family has a broader meaning that includes his friends and the community he has represented as a State Representative for nearly 8 years. Joe's service has been guided by conscience, by family values, and by a strong commitment to fiscal responsibility. I believe we can all identify with this.

Schmidt: A danger to liberty

Continued from page 4 religious liberty.” The Jan. 26 letter was read to parishioners at Mass throughout the region, and other Catholic bishops sent out similar ones. “I write to you concerning an alarming and serious matter that negatively impacts the Church in the United States directly, and that strikes at the Fundamental right to religious liberty for all citizens of any faith,” Schnurr’s letter said. “The federal government, which claims to be ‘of, by, and for the people,’ has just dealt a heavy blow to almost a quarter of those people – the Catholic population – and to the millions more who are served by the Catholic faithful,” the letter said. Other religions – but not all – feel the same way. Some of these religions run schools, hospitals, shelters, and other operations to carry out good works. Under the new healthcare law, these religious institutions would be forced

to provide free access for their employees to sterilization procedures, birth-control pills, and abortion-inducing drugs. The cost would be picked up by the religious institution and its insurance company. Two small church-affiliated colleges, Colorado Christian University and Belmont Abbey College in North Carolina, have decided to fight back. They are taking the federal government to court. Colorado Christian University, a school of about 950 students, objects to providing pharmaceuticals that induce abortions. Belmont Abbey College, which has about 1,600 students, is a Catholic school – and the Catholic church does not allow its institutions to take part in distributing pills that prevent pregnancy or cause abortion. The fines for refusing to surrender to the federal government’s power grab would be substantial: $300,000 against Belmont Abbey, and $500,000

Joe is the only Republican candidate running for Ohio's 14th District Senate seat on March 6 who has State legislative experience, and if ever there was a time when we've needed deep legislative experience in the Statehouse it is now. Joe is a man of character and I know he will be a strong voice for common sense in the State Senate. Please join me in voting for Joe Uecker on March 6. George R. Brown Jackson Township

Support appreciated Dear Editor: I would like to personally thank the residents of Wayne Township for their continual support over the past 20 years by electing me five times to serve the people of Wayne Township. There has certainly been some opposition over the years, but overall I have been privileged to be a part of many positive improvements for the township. At times I faced, along with the other trustees, overwhelming issues concerning cemeteries, Fire & Rescue, outdated house numbering system, poor roads, zoning issues only to be able to say to the residents that there have been vast improvements in all areas. By representing Wayne Township at the Ohio Township Association meetings, which included trustees from all neighboring townships and State Representatives, it has allowed me to gain new insight into concerns that apply to all townships and share these ideas and solutions with the other trustees. There have been many people within the township and out of the township who have enriched my life by having known them and it has been a pleasure to work with them. I would foremost like to thank my wife, Jan, for all of her help over the years and her steadfast support. Because of health issues, I felt I could not perform my duties as in the past so I am now in retirement. I would like to congratulate Jason Ritter as my replacement. I think he will do a fine job for the residents of Wayne Township. I pray that I have left a legacy of one who displayed honesty, integrity and character in all that I was able to accomplish along with the other trustees. Running a township is a big job and my prayer is that they work together as a team and that they attack the problem and not the person. My best to all. Thank you again for the awesome pleasure and opportunity to serve the residents of Wayne Township. Paul Ritchey Wayne Township Trustee, 1991-2011

Gingrich said Romney is “a liar,” “shameful,” “grossly hypocritical,” and “fundamentally dishonest.” Newt also said that Romney thinks the American people are “too stupid” to “connect the dots” and realize that Romney is Wall Street’s candidate. While I am skeptical of

the claims that Gingrich and Romney make for themselves, I am inclined to believe the things they are saying about each other. In any event, neither candidate is doing much talking about himself. Both candidates are spending most of their time and money attacking the other. These primaries are rapidly degenerating into a food fight.

Interim Administrator Stephen Rabolt said Commissioner Wilson was contacted about the session but did not respond. Wilson has been absent from every session the past two months, and Commissioner Proud said he hasn’t spoken with Wilson since the Dec. 1, 2011 session. Because two commissioners were not at the session, Rabolt said they would not be able to pay bills. “I verified with the auditor’s office that there is nothing critical,” Rabolt said at the meeting. “This happens occasionally, but if it goes three to four weeks then you have a problem.” In a letter addressed to the Board of County Commissioners Feb. 2, the day after the meeting, Wilson resigned from his position as Clermont County Commissioner. “Please accept this letter as my notification to resign my position as the Clermont County Commissioner effective immediately,” Wil-

Thomas Blust

son wrote in the letter. “This resignation is based on my physician’s advice.” Wilson concluded the letter by thanking the people of Clermont County and his good friends for their support. After receiving the letter, and once Commissioner Humphrey completed chemotherapy treatments, commissioners Proud and Humphrey met Feb. 6 and named assistant Clermont County prosecutor Thomas Blust interim commissioner until the Clermont County Republican Party Central

Puzzle solutions

Differences: 1. Tire is black. 2. Shrubs have been added. 3. Sweater has no stripes. 4. One key is missing. 5. Doorknob is different. 6. Wall is bare.

Committee appoints someone to replace Wilson. “Tom knows how the government works and he was a logical person,” Commissioner Proud said about selecting Blust. “Knowing every time we have a session, we will have a quorum is definitely comforting.” According to the Ohio Revised Code the committee has between five and 45 days to appoint someone to fill the position of commissioner. Committee Chairman Tim Rudd said they will make both an appointment and an endorsement for the November election at a meeting March 14. “We will do that in one motion, so it is the same person,” Rudd said. “The prerequisite will be to not only fill out the position until the November election, we are looking to put someone in who is willing to assume office and run in November.” He said he is already receiving phone calls and letters from people interested in the appointment. “At this point I’ve been contacted by close to a dozen people,” Rudd said. “I am getting a cross-section of people which I think is a healthy sign.” Rudd said he has had people in the party, elected officials, business owners and people who head nonprofit organizations express interest in the appointment. He said those who are serious about being considered for appointment should contact him in writing by submitting a letter to Tim Rudd, Chairman, P.O. Box 431, Batavia, OH 45103 or call (513) 515-7353. Rudd said those who are interested should also speak with members of the committee before the evening of the meeting to provide information about themselves and their experience. “Most of the committee members understand that this is one of the most important functions they have,” Rudd said.

glaries and more. Faris said he would treat the government position the same as he does his private practice, which he now runs with his wife, oldest son, daughter-in-law and youngest son. “I intend to be a fulltime prosecutor and give up my practice completely,” Faris said. “I would intend on being in court on a regular basis.” He said being full-time avoids the conflicts prosecutors get into when they also represent private clients. He said he thinks the county can get rid of that. “I think it is important for the county to set a precedent that the prosecutor is full-time,” he said. Faris, who was endorsed by the Clermont County Republican Party earlier this year, said he is eager to take the next step in his career if elected. “I would really be excited for the opportunity to run the office,” Faris said. “I just have a real interest in being the prosecutor and representing county officials in cases.”

Incumbent Prosecutor Don White has been reelected five times since he first ran for prosecutor in 1988. Prior to that he was the assistant prosecuting attorney in the county from 1974-1976. In 1976 he began his private practice at Nichols, Speidel and Nichols in Batavia, where he continues to work. “I just feel like I am not ready to retire,” White said about his decision to run again. “I am still physically and mentally fit and I still love the job. Every day brings a different challenge.” White said he has enjoyed nearly every minute of his time as prosecutor and wants to continue the progress he has made since he took the office. “Today we have prosecutors who can go toe-totoe with the best lawyers in southwest Ohio,” White said. “I believe I am responsible for that.” As prosecutor, White has also served with the Ohio Prosecuting Attorney’s Association as secretary, treasurer, vice president, legislative committee chairman and president. He has represented both

the state and the nation while serving. He said if elected for another term, he will make an effort to continue to increase public awareness of identity theft and also crack down on heroin use in the county. And while White is not a full-time prosecutor, he said that does not affect the quantity or quality of his work for the county. In addition, he said he gets paid less as a part-time prosecutor but still runs the office efficiently. “The last year Warren County had a full-time prosecutor was 2010 and the budget was $600,000 more than mine,” White said. “The question is not if I am part-time or fulltime, it’s am I doing the job?” White said Ohio law is set up to enable prosecutors to also have a private practice. He said if a prosecutor is experienced, well-organized and has a good team, they can have a private practice and do both jobs without conflict. “We are doing more for less and we are not suffering service-wise,” White said.

in the district during training sessions and they decided to offer workshops to parents and students. “We wanted to offer this free resource to our parents, and it aligns with financial literacy curriculum,” McGregor said. Parents who attended the workshop were able to take notes, ask questions and discuss the information presented. They will be able to continue to build upon what was presented at future workshops and were offered a free personal consultation with Plan the Way.

“I think it was great and was very informative,” Jenny Matthews, who came to the workshop with her son Alex Hankins, said. “We just want to make sure we are prepared, and I think having him hear it from someone else is important.” Matthews said this is the first time she has gone through the college process with a child and decided to come after seeing the workshop advertised on the school website. Alex, who definitely wants to attend college when he is older, found the workshop to be important as well.

“It’s annoying when you hear parents talk about college, but when you hear someone else, you realize it is more real,” Alex said. Having students and parents attend the workshops together is why Tom and Chris created their Families Uniting Now “FUN” programs. The next program for West Clermont students will take place Feb. 29 and will cover different ways to save money and pay for college.

Brown: Lessons of gratitude

Grand Jury Turn in your unwanted

Continued from page 4 is we lived there rent free, and rightly so because in earlier days the shack had served as a chicken coop. It had been scrubbed clean and wired for electricity to accommodate the most humble of human occupants. Dow and Roy’s shack measured about 12 by 15 feet. It had no windows, but some ventilation could be achieved by opening the top half of the Dutch doors at each end. Whatever furniture we may have had must have been sold before the move, which was just as well because the shack afforded only enough room for the bare essentials. These included an electric range, a refrigerator, an old kitchen cabinet, and a dinette set. Mom and Dad’s double bed stood in one corner and we three younger kids slept on mats in the opposite corner. My three older brothers were lucky because they got to sleep in the bunkhouse, which was actually an old shed in which Dad was able to squeeze a cot and set of bunk beds. We had no running water

but a kind neighbor took pity on us and allowed my older brothers to fill three or four water buckets at their house each day. The buckets of water were placed on the counter of the kitchen cabinet. A dipper hung from one bucket for drinking water. The second bucket was reserved for cooking, and the others were used for washing dishes, and faces and hands. Except for swimming in the river, I can’t remember taking a bath that summer. Living in town provided little opportunity to explore, but we quickly became friends with the other kids in the neighborhood, most of whom were only slightly less poor than us, and we would spend hours playing tag, hopscotch, hind-n-seek, and other games. As pictures of me taken that summer reveal, I could have passed as the ragamuffin poster child. The bottoms of my feet were tough and black from running barefooted. A change of trousers and a T-shirt would last for a week, or maybe two; and streaks of sweat would run down my neck from playing all day in

the hot sun. A cool wipe down with a wash cloth at bedtime was always refreshing. Mom and Dad planted a small garden of tomatoes, beans, and corn, but memories of being hungry that summer still linger in my mind. I remember on one occasion sneaking a couple of green tomatoes out of the garden and taking them into the outhouse to eat. There are many more stories I could share about the adventures of my childhood. Perhaps I’ll do so in future columns. For now I can tell you this. Unlike those humorous columns about the perils of organizing Yvonne’s kitchen cabinets or using my backpack to save myself or my brother-in-law from some tragedy, this story of my youth is entirely true. Yes, times were difficult, but those humble beginnings taught me lifelong lessons of simplicity and gratitude, for which I remain thankful to this day. George Brown is a freelance writer.

Pfeifer: Retroactive classification Continued from page 4 8017 (Store: Retail) - for the old 8044 number. Other changes placed delivery drivers into a separate category and introduced several other new classifications to accommodate an expanded service department. The most contentious element of the Bureau’s report was its conclusion that ARI should never have classified its sales and managerial staff as clerical employees under manual number 8810. The report recommended that employees be reclassified under manual number 8810 and recommended that the reclassification apply retroactively to July 2004. That retroactive reclassification meant that ARI would owe millions of dollars in back premiums, since new mutual number 8017 had a significantly higher premium rate than number 8810. ARI projected to the audit’s findings and requested a hearing before the Bureau’s Adjudicating Committee. ARI urged the committee to apply the reclassification only going forward. In making its argument, ARI cited the Bureau’s problematic 2006 audit the one that “did not pass the audit quality review process” - that might have alerted ARI two years earlier to a potential impropriety. In the alternative, ARI asserted that Ohio’s administrative code limited retrospective reclassification to the 24 months preceding the current payroll-reporting period, which would prohibit the collection of any alleged underpayment

prior to January 1, 2006. When the committee reached a decision, it upheld the new classifications but limited the retroactive application period to January 1, 2006 through the end of 2007, citing “the delay of processing the audit findings and the lack of proof that the Bureau ever provided written notice of the initial April 2006 audit or findings.” Having won only a partial victory, ARI filed an appeal with the court of appeals, claiming that the Bureau had abused its discretion by failing to adequately explain why it rejected ARI’s request for prospective reclassification only. ARI argued that the Bureau’s explanation for limiting the period of retroactive reclassification did not fully explain why retroactive reclassification should be imposed at all. But the court of appeals disagreed. After that, ARI brought its appeal before us- the Supreme Court of Ohio - for a final review. According to the administrative code, the Bureau can make adjustments to an employer’s account either prospectively or retroactively. ARI objected to retroactive reclassification and argued, among other things, that its ability to challenge the Bureau’s decision was compromised because the order didn’t explain why retroactive rather than prospective reclassification was favored. We agreed. In such cases, we “generally defer to the Bureau’s expertise in premium matters,” but our court will intercede when an occupational classification has been made in an arbitrary, capricious, or dis-

criminatory manner. Nor does the Bureau’s expertise in these matters supersede the duty our court “has imposed upon the Industrial Commission and the Bureau to adequately explain their decisions.” An order must “inform the parties and potentially a reviewing court of the basis” of the Bureau’s decision. ARI maintained that without an explanation why its request for prospective application was denied, it could not know whether the imposition was arbitrary, capricious, or in this case, punitive. ARI feared that the Bureau retroactively reclassified its employees as punishment for what the Bureau believed was ARI’s deliberate misclassification of the workers. ARI asserted that if that was the case, it deserved to know so that it can prove that the misclassification was unintentional and consistent with what it believed the Bureau desired initially. We concluded- by a seven-to-zero vote - that ARI’s points were valid. There is no way to know why the Bureau exercised its reclassification discretion as it did. Further explanation as to why the Bureau reached its decision is necessary before we can determine whether an abuse of discretion occurred. Thus we reversed the judgment of the court of appeals and granted a limited writ ordering the Bureau to vacate its order, further consider the matter, and issue an amended order including an explanation for its discretion.

I never knew how much I’d grieve When it was time for you to leave, Or just how much my heart would ache From that one fragment you would take.

New Richmond Exempted Village School District. “The mobile computer lab will be shared by the high school math department teachers and teams of students will explore the applications and changes of vectors, coordinates and much more in a virtual environment.” The mobile computer lab, consisting of 10 laptop computers, was delivered Thursday. High school match teachers received training in web-based GeoGebra during the summer. GeoGebra was developed in Europe and is used internationally and is available on the internet at www.geogebra.org . It allows teachers and students to do constructions including points, vectors, segments, lines, and conic sections as well as functions, which can be altered dynamically by mouse afterwards. “Our teachers will use it to demonstrate and teach higher level concepts and skills,” said Frye.

Milford bowlers turn attention to postseason BY CHRIS CHANEY Sun staff

With the sectional tournament just over a week away, Milford’s boys’ and girls’ bowling teams have their eyes firmly set on a postseason run. The Eagles had their last match of the season against Anderson on Tuesday, Feb. 7 and turned their focus following that match to their postseason aspirations. Head coach Frank Ritzmann is pleased with what both of his teams have been able to accomplish this year. “When we started off, I thought if we could be middle of the road with how young we are, having only two bowlers with varsity experience, that would be alright and that’s what we are,” Ritzmann said. The boys’ varsity team is 10-9 on the season and 9-6

in the Fort Ancient Valley Conference. Milford’s boys only have one senior on the team, Jordan Marshall. Marshall is the team captain and has an average of 176.2 with a high game of 254. Last year Marshall’s average was 134, so for him to improve by that margin is something Ritzmann is pleased about. “Our leading bowler is sophomore Kyle Chance,” Ritzmann said. “He’s averaging a 183.” Chance’s high game is a 233 and he ranks 27th in the FAVC in average. Chance is aided by junior Zach Wilson who currently has an average of 178.7 and a high game of 246. “We bowled in an invitational only tournament in Columbus,” Ritzmann said. “We did well there and I think it kick-started the kids.

The Milford varsity girls’ team.

“We hit a midseason snag and didn’t bowl that well in the middle of the year, but I expect us to come back pretty strong in the tournament.” Ritzmann believes that Chance has the best shot for the Eagles to send someone upstate.

“Kyle has been the most consistent and has a good chance to make it up state,” Ritzmann said. “Three years ago I had Jason Ashcraft go to state and Kyle is just as far along as a sophomore as he was, so I think he might have a shot.” The Milford Lady Eagles

are enjoying a successful season, sitting at 13-6 overall and 10-5 in the FAVC, good enough for third place in the East Division. “We have four seniors and two sophomores,” Ritzmann said. “Right now, our top bowler is senior Jessica Olson with a 160 average. She’s improved her average by 15 pins over last year.” Olson has a high game of 204 and her average has her 13th in the FAVC. Olson has an average of just two pins more than teammate Delaney Ward. The girls are a much more experienced group and with that, Ritzmann expected good things from his girls’ team. “We had high expectations for this team coming into the year,” he said. “With four bowlers coming back – and three of them starters – we’ve pretty

much achieved our goals. “Earlier in the season we beat Wilmington for the first time since I’ve been coaching. Hopefully we have a good showing and qualify for regionals (as a team.)” Ritzmann believes his girls’ team has what it takes to get out of sectionals as a team and face the challenge of the teams from all over southwest Ohio. “I think as a team we have a good chance of going from sectionals to regionals, but that’s where you meet the teams from north of Dayton and it gets really tough to advance past there.” The girls will have their chance to get to that regional meet when they bowl in their sectional tournament on Feb. 17 at Crossgate Lanes. The boys begin their march upstate on Feb

Williamsburg’s Jacob Herron drives against a Georgetown defender on Feb. 3.

Strong fourth quarter start propels Georgetown past Williamsburg BY ANDREW WYDER Sun Group

With star Kendal Young hot from the start, the Williamsburg boys basketball team wasted no time taking control last Friday night against Georgetown. Despite that hot start, however, the Wildcats could never fully break away from the host G-Men and it came back to hurt them as the G-Men scored the first 10 points of the final quarter to take the lead, and control, as they rolled to a 61-53 comefrom-behind Southern Buckeye Conference National Division victory. “We played well for three quarters,” Williamsburg coach Dan McKibben said. He added, of the defining fourth quarter, “We made a few mistakes, had a couple of turnovers. We had a cou-

ple travel calls that wiped out baskets. That hurt. When your shots aren’t falling real well...you’ve got to give Georgetown credit. Their defense turned it up a notch, a little bit, in the fourth quarter.” With Williamsburg holding on a to a four point halftime lead, 31-27, the G-Men came out of the locker room ready to take over. The Wildcats were able to fend the G-Men off for much for the third quarter because even as the G-Men made shots, the Wildcats answered. When Young hit a fade away jumper from the elbow, the Wildcats had increased their lead to 35-29 about a minute and a half in to the second half. But a Gage Bradley 3pointer and Jacob Miller long jumper quickly got the

G-Men back within one, 3534. And the G-Men continued to push for the lead. Just minutes after Miller had gotten them within one, Bruce-Derrick Williams got the G-Men all the way back when he finished a cutting layup while he was fouled. His free throw tied the game at 39 with 2:58 left in the third. On the G-Men’s next possession down, however, Williams missed a layup from close range that would have given the hosts the lead and the Wildcats took advantage. Young -- who scored a game-high 31 points and grabbed 16 rebounds -- got Williamsburg the lead back when he ran in from the wing and put back a teamSee Burg, Page B12

The New Richmond boys’ and girls’ swim teams have their sights firmly focused on Mason High School’s natatorium as the Lions attempt to take the first step towards Canton and the state tournament. Coached by the brother and sister duo of Joe and Judy Middeler, the Lions completed their regular season with the Southern Ohio Swim League Meet on Feb. 4 and will be competing at Mason on Friday, Feb. 10 and Saturday, Feb. 11 for the right to advance to the district tournament. Judy Middeler, the girls’ coach, believes that there are members from both teams that have a good shot of advancing up-state. “We’ve had a really good season,” Judy said. “The kids have all improved on their times and we have been very productive as far as the kids swimming together as a team and working hard.” The Lady Lions were 8-3 on the year and finished fourth at the SOSL meet behind Cincinnati Country Day, Clark Montessori and Seven Hills. “I really pay attention to how well my swimmers do on their times rather than if we win or lose,” Judy Middeler said. She has a solid group of young talent prepared for the future as well as senior Natasha Poe to offer leadership and direction. Poe swims 100-yard backstroke and the 50-yard backstroke in the medley relay. The Lady Lions are led by junior Kara Burns. Burns swims the 500-yard breaststroke and the 500-yard freestyle. “Kara went to districts last year for her 500 free, but she’s had some of her best

times this year,” Middeler said. Helping Burns are Megan Woolum, Jessica Nazareth and Ashley Lewis. All three are sophomores and Middeler plans to have them do good things for the program in the future. As for the sectional tournament this weekend, Middeler hopes for good things from all of her swimmers, but believes that Burns has the best chance to make some noise upstate. “(Burns) is our biggest potential. Girls’ swimming is very competitive and there are many more girls swimming than boys, making the talent pool much harder to negotiate,” Middeler said. “All of our kids swim only three months out of the year. They don’t really swim in the summer so we’re really pleased to see the kind of times they are swimming without putting in 11 months a year.” The New Richmond boys are working on a record-breaking year, going 11-0 in dual meets. The boys’ finished second at the SOSL meet on Saturday, Feb. 4 behind Cincinnati Country Day. They won the 200 medley relay, 200-yard freestyle and 500-yard freestyle events. The Lions top swimmers are Alex Ariapad, Greg Gillman, Theo Ostermann, Colt Reese and Tyler David. Ariapad is a senior who has been swimming for four years at New Richmond. He swims the 100-yard butterfly and 200-yard individual medley. “Alex’s first love is cross country and See NewRich, Page B12

Scholz had narrowed his choices down to Taylor University, Ashland University and Malone University before deciding on Malone late last week. “It came down to that Malone needed me more than Ashland did,” Danny said. “Ashland has a really good program and they have it rolling over there. I thought that Malone needed me, so that’s why I decided to go there.”

Clermont Northeastern center midfielder and forward Kylie Sumner signed her National Letter of Intent to attend Indiana State University on Wednesday, Feb. 1 in front of a group of family, friends, teachers and coaches. Sumner, a four-year varsity starter, scored 36 career goals and assisted on 28 others. She also started all 64 regular-season games during her four years as a Rocket. Sumner was named to the First Team All-Southern Buckeye Conference the last three years and was named the SBC-American

Co-Player of the Year in 2011. She was voted to be team captain during three of her four years at CNE. Sumner has moved up the rankings in the city over the last three years. As a sophomore, Sumner checked in at 32nd for Division II. As a junior, she moved up to 23rd and in her senior season, she was ranked No. 13. Moving between the midfield and the striker positions, Sumner showed her versatility and unselfishness on the field. Sumner has excellent foot skills, speed and is described as a playmaker on the field. Her technical and tactical knowledge of

the game is superb. Sumner played her club soccer for the Cincinnati Soccer Alliance. Located in Terre Haute, Indiana, the Sycamores of Indiana State announced the addition of 11 other players beside Sumner on Signing Day. “Our coaching staff is so excited to finally be able to welcome our 2012 soccer class to the Sycamore family. This class brings in a ton of talent. It could quite possibly be the greatest recruiting class to ever join the Indiana State soccer program,” ISU head coach Erika True said.

Holly Harris (Batavia) - Ohio University - Soccer Batavia High School striker Holly Harris signed her Letter of Intent on Thursday, Feb. 2 to continue her soccer career at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. “There are a lot of reasons (I chose OU),” Harris said. “First of all was the soccer part. I love the coaches; they stuck with me even after I tore my ACL. Plus, my sister goes there, so it’s good for the whole family.” Harris tore her ACL in August of 2010. A freak injury, Harris simply stepped awkwardly and the injury occurred with no contact.

Harris enjoyed success early during her time at Batavia scoring 59 goals in her first two seasons and being named the Southern Buckeye Conference National Division Player of the Year her sophomore season. After missing her junior season due to rehabbing her knee, Harris picked up where she left off a year earlier, scoring 34 goals during her senior season and assisting on 12 others and once again being named the Player of the Year in the SBC-National. Harris was named to the First Team All-SBC all three of her playing years.

Harris said she was recruited by Indiana State and Dayton, as well as Ohio, “I’m her biggest fan. We’re very proud of her,” René Harris, Holly’s mother, said. “It’s pretty cool since it’s been her dream. When she was nineyears-old, she said she was going to play college soccer.” “An athlete with great size and strength, Holly’s biggest attribute is her ability to score,” Ohio coach Stacy Strauss said. “Also coming off an ACL tear, if she arrives fit and confident in August, she will be a real threat to opposing teams.” PHOTO / CHRIS CHANEY

Savanna Termuhlen (Milford) - Wright State - Track Milford High School track and field stand-out Savanna Termuhlen has signed a Letter of Intent to attend Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio in 2013 to continue her running career. Termuhlen is a junior at Milford, but she has already made a big impact on both the coaches in high school as well as at the next level. “She’s obviously a big part of what we’ve done the last three years and hopefully what we will continue to do this coming year,” Milford track and field coach Shane Bartholomew said. Termuhlen came back out for track her freshman year after taking some time off from the sport, but Bartholomew said he saw something in Savanna that he knew was different. “Starting out as a freshman, we knew there was something very special about

her,” he said. “Over the last three years, she’s really grown and matured into a great track athlete.” Termuhlen has enjoyed success in her short time at Milford. Termuhlen broke two school records in 2011 and Bartholomew believes she isn’t done yet. Termuhlen broke the 100-meter dash school record with a time of 12.2 seconds and the 200-meter dash with a time of 25.2 seconds. Termuhlen qualified for the state meet in Columbus last year as a junior for her 100meter dash. Bartholomew believes that she will have a good chance to get back to the state meet again in 2012. However, Bartholomew said that he believes Termuhlen has her best chance for a high finish in the 200-meter dash. She did not run her best race last year at the District Meet at Mason High School.

Bartholomew believes that as a senior Termuhlen will have what it takes to go back upstate and place highly. Also as a senior, Bartholomew and Termuhlen have been talking recently about adding an event to her meet schedule in hopes that she will be able to leave a bigger impact on Milford track. “(Savanna and I) have been talking about her running the open 400 meter next year. She has a chance to set that school record and get three before she leaves,” Bartholomew said. Termuhlen excels in the sprints and thusly Bartholomew has her compete in the four-by-100, four-by-200 and four-by400-meter relays as well. Among her honors, Termuhlen was named to the First Team All-Fort Ancient Valley Conference for both her 100- and 200-meter dashes.

Kiley Collins (Goshen) - Clermont College - Volleyball Goshen High School senior Kiley Collins signed a Letter of Intent to play volleyball and continue her schooling at Clermont College next year. Collins was a middle hitter for Goshen, leading the Warriors to a 14-7 regular-season record and a postseason appearance. The Warriors had a solid season, getting on a roll after a slow start. Over the last three weeks of September, Collins led her team to wins in nine of 10 matches. Collins and Goshen finished the season in second place in the Southern Buckeye Athletic Conference American Division. During her senior season,

Collins accounted for 207 kills, averaging 2.88 per game. She also accounted for 40 service aces. Collins also did her part on the defensive side of the net, going for 72 blocks in 2011, good for one per game. She also had 112 digs in her senior season. For her stellar play, Collins was honored with numerous awards and honors during her career as a Warrior. As a junior, Collins was named to the SBC American Division Second Team All-Stars. Following her senior season, Collins was upgraded to the SBC American Division First Team All-Stars and was named

to the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Division II All-City Team as an Honorable Mention. Besides her success as a Goshen Warrior, Collins also excelled playing club volleyball for the Cincy Peppers Volleyball Club. Collins was a member of the 18 Chili Peppers. At Clermont College Collins will join an already-established program. The Cougars won both the regular season and tournament championship in the Ohio Collegiate Athletic Conference in 2011. Collins will join a host of top players from around the area on the Cougars next season as the team looks for another successful season.

Milford High School senior Rachel Wolcott has signed a Letter of Intent to continue her soccer career at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. Wolcott is a four-year letterman in both soccer and basketball. During her injury-shortened senior season, Wolcott scored 12 goals and assisted on nine others en route to leading the Eagles to the Regional Finals. Wolcott was named the Fort Ancient Valley Conference Player of the Year in 2011 as well as being a First Team All-FAVC all four years. Following her senior season, Wolcott was named to the First Team AllSouthwest Ohio, First Team All-Ohio and was selected to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-Region Team (Region IV). Over her four years, Wolcott has

amassed 59 victories, making her the winningest individual in Milford girls’ soccer history. Wolcott scored 46 goals and had 42 assists (2008 – 17 goals, 9 assists; 2009 – 8 goals, 11 assists; 2010 – 9 goals, 13 assists; 2011 – 12 goals, 9 assists). Wolcot has played her club soccer for the Cincinnati Soccer Alliance Elite since she was seven years old. Aside from soccer, Wolcott also plays basketball and runs track. She has been honored with awards in both of those sports as well. Wolcott’s other awards include: First Team All-League Girls’ Basketball FAVC Buckeye Division; 20102011 First Team All-League Girls’ Basketball FAVC East Division; 20082009 FAVC All-Conference Academic Award Basketball; 2008-2009 FAVC

Wolcott will join six other recruits beginning their careers at Ohio State. “This class bookends goalkeepers and forwards adding to the great tradition we have a t Ohio State,” head coach Lori Walker said. “Morgan is an outstanding athlete with speed and size that will be dangerous in the Big Ten,” Walker said. “She is versatile and able to contribute in all three lines and we anticipate her having an immediate presence on our squad.”

Mallory Baker (Milford) - Montreat College - Volleyball Milford High School senior Mallory Baker signed a Letter of Intent to play volleyball for Montreat College in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Baker was a four-year varsity starter, playing middle and outside hitter as well as being a defensive specialist. During her career at Milford, Baker was named First Team All-Southern Buckeye Conference both her junior and senior seasons. She was also named to the Third Team All-City the

past two years. Baker was honored with the Fort Ancient Valley Conference Player of the Year award her senior season. Baker led the conference in blocks three years in a row and had over 200 kills and 100 blocks in each of her last two seasons. In Baker’s senior season, she had 214 kills, good for seventh in the FAVC and 226 digs to go along with her 100 blocks, which put her third in the FAVC. Baker has played volleyball since the 7th grade.

Baker continued her volleyball career outside of school playing for the Northern Kentucky Volleyball Club during the Milford offseason. According to Montreat’s website, Baker chose the school because of the people, the academics and the Christian atmosphere. While at Milford, Baker earned a 3.6 GPA and plans to pursue a career in sales, although she is undecided on a major at Montreat Mallory is the daughter of Barry and Terri Baker. She has three brothers.

Emily Cummings (Glen Este) - Southern Indiana - Soccer Glen Este High School senior Emily Cummings signed a Letter of Intent to continue her soccer career at the University of Southern Indiana. Cummings is a midfielder and a defender. She played in 16 games in 2011, tallying three goals and two assists. Cummings had 24 shots on goal during the season in which the Trojans went 3-12-1. In her junior season, Cummings played in five games and assisted no two goals. Cummings narrowed her choice for a college pro-

gram throughout the season, but she liked the entire package that Southern Indiana had to offer. “Southern Indiana seemed like a good fit for me,” Cummings said after signing her LOI. “I really liked the soccer program, plus it’s not too far away.” The University of Southern Indiana is located in Evansville, Ind. about four hours away from Clermont County. The Screaming Eagles of Southern Indiana went 9-82 during their 2011 campaign and hope that Emily will help them improve on

that record. The University of Southern Indiana is a member of NCAA Division II and compete in the Great Lakes Conference, Emily is the daughter of John and Deanna Cummings. As one would expect, her parents are happy that their daughter is fulfilling a dream. “Obviously, I’m really proud of her,” John Cummings said at the signing, held at Glen Este High School on February 1. “We’re very excited to see her play college soccer.”

Lorin Conti (Milford) - Heidelberg University - Track Milford High School senior cross country and track athlete Lorin Conti signed her Letter of Intent to attend Heidelberg University in Tiffin, Ohio to continue her studies and running career. Conti was one of three seniors on Milford’s cross country team in 2011. As a freshman, Conti recorded the 14th best time at the Fort Ancient Valley Conference Meet en route to Milford winning the FAVC Buckeye Division. Conti has been a consistent contributor the team with her best career time coming at the Milford Invitational in 2010. Conti finished in a tie for 18th with a best time of 20:27. Other top finishes for Conti include a 21:16 as a freshman, 22:10 as a sophomore and 20:53 in 2011. Conti was named to the Second Team All-FAVC following both her junior and her senior seasons.

“(Conti) went to Regionals as a member of the team her freshman year,” Milford head track coach Leah Sears said. “She is a hard worker. She is dedicated to the sport. I am looking forward to her doing well in the future.” Conti will also run on Heidelberg’s track team during her time in Tiffin, spending most of her time in long-distance events. While running track at Milford, Conti has excelled both the 1600- and 3200meter runs. Conti’s best time in the 1600-meter is 5:57:40, which ranked 23rd in the FAVC in 2011. Her best time in the 3200-meter was 12:09.60, which was sixth best in the conference. Being around cross country during her time at Milford, it only makes sense that she will thrive in the long-distance events. While the senior performed admirably on the track, Conti took her time as a stu-

dent-athlete seriously. Conti’s talents extend past the track and she is very involved at Milford. The senior carried a 3.1 GPA while also taking part in teen counseling, student council, concert choir and her church youth group. Conti plans to pursue Special Education while at Heidelberg as well as furthering her running career. Heidelberg is a NCAA Division III school and competes in the Ohio Athletic Conference. Heidelberg is the oldest member of the OAC, which is one of the oldest athletic conferences in the nation. The Berg has won 46 OAC Championships. The school is known for its distinctive “Student Prince” mascot, which draws its name for the German operetta . Heidelberg competes in indoor and outdoor track.

Stephen Vetter (Glen Este) - Thomas More - Soccer Glen Este High School senior Stephen Vetter signed a Letter of Intent to play soccer and continue his studies at Thomas More College in Crestview Hills, Kentucky. Vetter was a four-year varsity letterman for the Trojans and was named to the First Team All-Fort Ancient Valley Conference following his senior season. Vetter, a defenseman, said the location of Thomas More as well as the program were key factors in choosing to become a TMC Saint. “(Thomas More) is really close to home and I really liked the campus,” Vetter

said. “I love the coach and where the team is going. Plus the trip they take each year (to Costa Rica) is a nice touch.” Vetter’s parents, Melissa and Tom, were on hand at Glen Este to see their son commit to play at Thomas More, along with Glen Este Athletic Director Dan Simmons. With Thomas More being a Division III school, Vetter does not receive an athletic scholarship, but he will be getting financial compensation for academics and leadership awards. “We’re really proud of him,” Melissa Vetter said. “We’re happy that he’s

going locally so we can watch him play.” “With the turnover of players graduating, the coach said that (Stephen) would have an opportunity to come in and play as a freshman,” Tom Vetter said.”The campus is small and so are class sizes, so that was an advantage.” The Saints compete in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference. Thomas More’s men’s soccer team played their way to a 16-2-1 record last season. The Saints also won the PAC regular season and tournament championship, earning them a berth in the NCAA Division III tournament.

Milford High School senior Maddy Bunnell signed a Letter of Intent to continue her soccer career at Central Michigan University in Saginaw, Michigan. Bunnell, a three-year varsity letterman, played goalkeeper for the Lady Eagles during her time at MHS. She played on the junior varsity-A team as a freshman and she was honored with the Eagle Award. Bunnell was named to the Second Team All-Fort Ancient Valley Conference following both her sophomore and junior seasons and cracked the First Team All-FAVC after an impressive senior campaign. Manning the net all three years on varsity, Bunnell allowed four goals in 12 games during her sophomore season, making 60 saves and recording eight shutouts. As a junior, Bunnell gave up seven

goals in nine games and recorded two shutouts. During her senior season, Bunnell allowed just 18 goals in 21 games, recording 120 saves and accounting for an FAVC best 10.5 shutouts. Bunnell began playing SAY soccer when she was five years old and has been playing club soccer for the Cincinnati Soccer Alliance since she was nine. With Bunnell in the net, the Lady Eagles have enjoyed great success, finishing atop the FAVC Buckeye Division each of the last three years. The Lady Eagles have a combined record of 43-11-3 during Bunnell’s career. Last season, the Lady Eagles enjoyed their greatest success as the team advanced upstate winning the district finals before falling to Centerville in the regional semi-finals 1-0 in

overtime. While Bunnell excelled on the soccer pitch, she also did well in the classroom. Bunnell plans on pursuing a degree in marketing at Central Michigan. Off the field, Bunnell is a member of the National Honor Society, a DECA Officer and Teen Counselor. She was honored by the FAVC last season for her academic accomplishments. Bunnell will join a women’s soccer program at Central Michigan that has a pedigree of NCAA Tournament appearances as well as being a force in the Mid-American Conference. The Chippewas went 14-8 last year, but failed to make an appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Bunnell will have to compete with MAC All-Freshman Team selection Grace Labrecque for playing time.

The Bethel-Tate wrestling team has had success over the last couple of seasons and head coach Tom Donahue believes that his team has what it takes to get back up to Columbus for the state meet. “We’ve done pretty well so far this season,” Donahue said. “We finished first at Madeira, third at the Coaches Classic and we have 15 juniors on our team. We’re having a good season this year, but next year could be just as successful.” Aside from the Madeira Invitational and Coaches Classic, the Tigers have also finished second at the Fenwick Invitational and just won the Batavia Invitational on Saturday, Feb. 4. The Tigers had two wrestlers win their weight class at the Batavia Invite and four others finish second. Leading Bethel this season is junior Chip Ratcliff. Ratcliff is 30-7 so far this

ahue said. “He’s got some big wins under his belt this season. He beat the tough kid from Loveland, the placer from Mason, Gonzales, and he beat Brown from Lakota. “I’m expecting him to do well in the post-season as

well.” Aside from Ratcliff, the Tigers get some of their senior leadership from Brandon Kahlenbeck. Kahlenbeck is 31-4 on the season so far and Donahue is looking for him to go upstate.

Bethel-Tate’s wrestling team has three to four possible state qualifiers this year.

“We have three or four guys who I expect to make it to state this year. Kahlenbeck finished third at the Coaches Classic and Miami Trace,” Donahue said. “He’s been bouncing back and forth between 113 and 106 pounds, but he’s already won at Madeira and Edgewood.” The third upperclassman Donahue is expecting to make his way to Columbus is junior Brian Carter who wrestles at 126 pounds. “Carter is 24-11 this year. He’s finished sixth at the Coaches Classic, but he’s a returning district qualifier along with (Ratcliff and Kahlenbeck),” Donahue said. “Carter is peaking at the right time. He had some losses earlier in the season that he probably shouldn’t have lost, but he’s wrestling the best he has all year at the right time.” On Donahue’s periphery of possible state qualifiers are freshman Aric Peters at 120 pounds and Jon Ward at 195. “Peters and Ward are on

my bubble (as far as state).” Donahue said. “Those are my expectations for them, so they’ll probably have to upset some people, but I believe they can get upstate.” Peters has gone 27-5 in his freshman season and Donahue believes that he is really coming into his own as the postseason approaches and he is pleased with how Peters had transitioned to high school wrestling. Ward missed a few matches because of injury, but has had a good season thus far going 24-6. Donahue and Ward both had high hopes for Ward’s junior season and believe that he can get back to state this year. Finally for Bethel, Kian Mollette is a returning district qualifier in the heavyweight division who Donahue believes can get upstate if he can get the right draw and is able to wrestle well. The Tigers begin their trek back to state with sectionals taking place on Feb. 17 and 18.

track, but he’s a good solid swimmer and a good leader. He enjoys swimming and works hard at it.” Middeler said. Gillman swims the 100yard breaststoke and 500 freestyle. Ostermann swims butterfly and the 500-yard freestyle. He also is a good filler for the relay teams when the coaches need him. Colt Reese swims backstroke and sprints the 50yard freestyle. Tyler David is the Lion’s distance swimmer, swimming 200-yard freestyle and 500-yard freestyle. Middleler was also high on Derrick Geltman, a freshman who swims the 50- and 100-yard freestyle.

As for the sectional and district tournaments, Middeler is looking at the team of Ariapad, Reese, David and Geltman to return to districts for their relay. Also, the medley relay is an event Middeler believes can do well in the postseason. Geltman will be the key as the other three swimmers were able to make it to districts last year with a graduating senior. It’s up to Geltman to fill that role. “We have 15 or 16 boys on our team which is a lot of depth for a boys’ team,” Middeler explained. “We’re not heavy in any one grad freshmen, sophomores, juniors or seniors - so I think we also have a good core for the future.”

The New Richmond girls’ varsity swim team.

Heading into the final quarter last Thursday night of their Southern Buckeye Conference American Division showdown with Western Brown, the New Richmond girls basketball team was in control. With 6-foot-5 center Josie Buckingham controlling the middle both offensively and defensively, the Lady Lions were in good position, up 11 points, to earn a conference win that would put them in position for a conference title with just over a week remaining in the regular season. But thanks to clutch shooting both from the field and at the foul stripe from juniors Ty Henry and Kylie Garrett as well as an attacking pressure defense, Western Brown quickly erased their double digit deficit in the final quarter and held on for a thrilling, come-frombehind 50-46 victory that clinched a share of the SBC-American Division for the host Lady Broncos. For as well as they played the first three quarters, the Lady Lions struggled late finding their composure against the attacking Lady Broncos. “It was combination of things,” New Richmond

“It was a combination of our kids playing real tight and not handling the ball real strong. (And) playing a little scared and not getting a few key foul calls here and there.” Once Courtney Grogan finished a fast break layup off teammate’s Sarah Shoemaker’s defensive rebound and outlet near the end of the third quarter, the Lady Lions seemed in control up 37-26 with a quarter to play.

quarter it stayed that way. Though Henry got Western Brown within four, 3733, after she hit four free throws on back-to-back possessions with 4:25 left, the Lady Lions finally found some offense. After stopping the Lady Broncos as they tried to cut into the lead again, Shoemaker scored the first New Richmond points of the final quarter on a 3-pointer with 3:40 left. The basket

out to a seven point lead, 40-33. Garrett answered the 3point basket with two free throws after being fouled on a drive to the hoop to cut the Western Brown deficit to five, 40-35. With the Lady Broncos defense keeping the Lady Lions from finding the offensive consistency they had the first three quarters, Henry took advantage as she attacked the rim on the other end of the floor and hit two more free throws to bring Western Brown within three, 40-37, with 2:50 left. Western Brown continued to control the game, taking a 45-43 lead with 1:14 remaining. A Grogan 3-pointer got the Lady Lions within three, 49-46, with 16.2 seconds remaining but that was as close as the Lady Lions would get. The combination of Henry and Garrett, who hit 17-18 free throws in the final quarter, would close the game out at the line as they made 7-8 at the charity stripe to seal the win and a share of the Lady Broncos fifth straight SBC-American Division title. New Richmond enters the sectional tournament with a 15-4 record.

mates missed shot. The Wildcats added to their lead right before the quarter ended as Nick Fetts cleaned up another teammate’s missed shot. The basket gave the Wildcats a 43-39 lead as the final quarter got underway. But, as the fourth quarter started, the G-Men snatched the momentum, and lead, away from their visitors. After the Wildcats turned the ball over on the first possession of the quarter, the G-Men started what would become a 10-0 spurt with a Bradley free throw. By the time G-Men forward Nathan Lewis hit a free throw then converted in the post with a spin move for a layup, the hosts had jumped to a 49-43 lead. “It changed the complexion,” McKibben said. “They made the most of their opportunities. They made some shots. A couple possessions we gave up an offensive board that they converted. Give them credit, they took advantage of that.” When Young finally got the Wildcats on the board in the final quarter with two free throws with 3:59 left, the Wildcats were down just four points with plenty of time on the clock. Between turnovers and missed shots, however, the Wildcats just seemed to be running out of steam.

“I think we might have been a little tired in the fourth quarter. We usually substitute a little bit more than we did tonight,” McKibben said. “We had a couple of guys coming back from injuries that didn’t get as many minutes as they usually do. Maybe that was it.” For as well as Young played the first two and a half quarters, he wasn’t able to find his shot in the fourth quarter. Being tired played a part but both coaches felt the GMen’s defense did as well. “(Jake Cropper) played outstanding on Young the second half because he had to work for every point he got,” said Georgetown coach Jerry Underwood. It was thanks to Cropper and his fellow freshman Jacob Miller and Gage Bradley that the G-Men

were able to put the game away. The trio hit 9-13 free throws -- Miller hit 8-10 by himself during the stretch -in the final 2:57 of the game. Additionally, Cropper hit a big 3-pointer with 2:08 left that opened the game up and gave the GMen a 54-45 lead. “All three of those guys, the past three games, have led us in scoring in double figures,” Underwood said. “Hate to say it but we’re looking to them to do what we need to have done. Even though they’re so young, it’ll pay dividends for years to come. But they don’t seem to mind it. They’re confident enough that they’ll attempt to do it.” A Young 3-pointer got the Wildcats within six with 25. 3 seconds left but that was as close as the Wildcats could get in another tough loss. “We’ve improved. I told the guys when we got in (the locker room) that our effort is better,” McKibben said. “We played with good effort, consistently, for four quarters.” Williamsburg (3-13, 1-6 SBC-N) 53 Young 10 6 31, Herron 2 0 4, Workman 2 0 4, Posey 4 2 10, Fetts 2 0 4, Madsen 0 0 0, West 0 0 0, Reed 0 0 0.

There hasn’t been much that has gone in the Goshen boys basketball teams favor this season. With the ball not always bouncing in their direction, the Warriors have competed in most games but have come up short as they have lost 11 of their last 12 games. Their latest setback, a 4936 Southern Buckeye Conference American Division loss to Western Brown, saw the Warriors play well to start and to end but a lackadaisical effort in the middle two quarters was the difference. The visiting Broncos took control of the game with a 16-0 run midway through the second quarter and held off the Warriors in the second half with a strong defensive performance. “The effort wasn’t as good as it was (the) first and fourth quarters,” Goshen coach Scott Wake said of the deciding second and third quarters. “The execution always seems to have something that gets in our way, usually ourselves. We keep working; we get our hands on balls but just can’t pull it in. We get a steal and get a layup and miss it (then) get the rebound and miss it. Seems like every game it’s something like that.” An Austin Smith 3-

pointer and Kyle Wake fast break layup off a Bronco turnover helped Goshen get to within nine, 31-22, at the break. Neither team played all that great in the third quarter but Western Brown did enough to increase their lead to as many as 14 points before settling for a 40-29 lead going into the fourth quarter. The Warriors would get no closer as they turned the ball over six times and missed too many opportunities to score in the final quarter. The win wrapped up the outright SBC-American Di-

vision title for the Broncos with two weeks left in the season. Goshen fell to 4-12 on the year, with the loss coming as their seventh in a row.
