Burke receives Hope and Heroes award Burke helped develop the Partnership for Mental Health Sun staff

The term superhero was used frequently at The Partnership for Mental Health’s annual Celebration of Hope and Heroes luncheon Oct. 21 and the theme helped describe the hero award recipient perfectly. Tricia Burke, former CoCEO of LifePoint Solutions and former executive director for the Clermont Counseling Center, was honored at the luncheon for her contributions to the Partnership for Mental Health as well as both of the organizations she worked with. “She has paved the way for us,” Liz Atwell, executive director of the Mental Health America of Southwest Ohio and board member at the partnership, said. “She made the time to roll up her sleeves and work on events.” Atwell said that Burke helped develop the Partnership for Mental Health into what it is today, even during the merger of Family Services and Clermont Counseling Center, which became LifePoint Solutions. The organization, along

with The Mental Health Association of Clermont County, Mercy Hospital Clermont and more, created the partnership to reach out to community leaders and educate the public about mental health. “There are all kinds of individuals here,” Atwell said about the partnership. “Everyone from government officials to criminal justice. It has broadened the audience.” By using community events, including the Celebration of Hope and Heroes, as educational opportunities, those involved in the partnership help reduce the stigma that surrounds mental illnesses. Burke has been a part of the mission for years, and although she has retired from her position at LifePoint Solutions, she said she will always be supporting the cause. “When you put so much of your heart and soul into your work, saying goodbye to clients and co-workers and ending day-to-day communication is hard,” Burke said. But she also said she knows the agency is in a good place, and she is glad she was able to

Audrey Bolte to compete in Miss USA pageant BY KRISTIN BEDNARSKI Sun staff

Audrey Bolte, a 2007 Batavia High School graduate, had never been in a beauty pageant before she packed her outfits and drove up to Portsmouth, Ohio two weeks ago with friends and family. When she returned to her home town, however, she brought with her the title of Miss Ohio, which puts her in the running for Miss USA. “I felt very confident in myself, but pageant is totally different than what I’m used to,” Bolte said. “I just did my best and it looks like it turned out all right.” Bolte calls herself a country girl. She rides horses and drives a Ford truck. And although she was involved in modeling growing up, she

Three candidates are running to fill two village council seats in Bethel, however, none of them will appear on the ballot, as they are all write-in candidates. Jeremiah Hembree, Gary Hutchinson and Lucy Shepherd all decided to run after the filing deadline, but are all eager for an opportunity to represent the community as a council member. “I had talked with a couple folks who asked if I would consider running because of my interest in council,” Hembree said. “I really felt it would be a great opportunity to invest in my community.” Hembree has attended many council meetings since he moved to the village two years ago. Originally from Missouri, he said the small community of Bethel feels like his childhood home. “I love the community,” he

said about Bethel. “The sense of community is lost in a lot of places.” Hembree graduated high school in Fairfield, earned a degree in secondary education and became a youth pastor. Currently he is a senior pastor at Bethel Assembly of God and said he loves the relationship of the churches in the village. He said his experience as a pastor has helped him learn how to handle finances. “We have to be a good steward of what we’ve got, because it is limited in the church,” he said. If elected, Hembree said he would like to work one-onone with the mayor and financial officer to find out what the priorities are in the village and learn about revenue sources. He said the biggest issues to address in the village are the ongoing financial issues, and making sure Bethel is a community people want to live in down the road. “The biggest thing is being informed,” Hembree said.

Batavia graduate is the new Miss Ohio never got into beauty pageants. She said her mom, Shelly, encouraged her to participate, but she was busy with other activities. Bolte attended St. Andrews Presbyterian College in North Carolina after graduating from Batavia High School. She was active in the equestrian program, competing on several collegiate teams and helping her teammates reach nationals her junior and senior year. While in college, Bolte volunteered with several organizations and was involved with honor clubs including the Business Honor Society, where she earned a marketing award. She graduated in 2011 with a degree in business administration, with a focus in marketing and management, and a minor in equine science. Once she graduated, she returned home to Batavia, where her parents have a farm. “I have been so busy with that, I had no time to do a pageant,” Bolte said about her college activities. But once she returned home, her mom suggested the

illness and spread the word about mental health. They called her a superhero and thanked her for her hard work through the years.

Homearama traditionally attracts over 40,000 people to the annual event. “Entire families come year after year,” said Dressman. “It’s an incredible place to discover the latest trends in architecture and design. People are taking pictures constantly, planning to use some of the decorating ideas they see at the home show. For those

looking to build, Homearama is a great opportunity for people to meet various builders and take a good look at their work.” Dressman said that a lot of unique events will be held at the Willows Bend Homearama, in conjunction with the fiftieth anniversary of the HBA showcase.

model, the first African American first lady, and stands for improved exercise of the younger generation,” Bolte said. She also said she is impressed that the first lady still shops at target and other lower-price retail stores, which shows she can relate to many Americans trying to save money. The judges liked her answer, and she remained on stage as the judges awarded the runners-up. Finally, the judges announced the first runner up, and Bolte was announced as Miss Ohio. “I was so shocked,” she said. “I didn’t know what my name was, I didn’t know what my age was, I just looked at the crowd, I was shaking like a leaf I was just so excited.” Bolte said she didn’t expect to make it as far as she did, and is thankful that she had her family and friends there for encouragement. “My agent said my mom and grandmother looked like teenagers going crazy,” Bolte said. For being named Miss Ohio, Bolte received more than $40,000 in scholarship money, she will have the opportunity to travel across

the country to attend many events, and she will be competing in the nationally televised Miss USA pageant next summer. “Her year will be all about personal growth and development,” Melissa Pitchford, executive director of Miss Ohio said. “I can tell you that snagging the title provides her the opportunity to represent the state of Ohio.” Bolte said she hopes that she can bring some focus back to the state at the Miss USA pageant and is excited to begin her adventure as Miss Ohio. “I think I will really be able to be prepared to compete and enjoy the Miss USA pageant,” Bolte said. “And enjoy everything that goes with it.” And while the pageant winner came home from Portsmouth with much more ahead of her this coming year, she said she is still the same girl as when she left, and nothing will change that. “I am just a normal, everyday country girl that decided to put her foot down,” Bolte said. “I still clean my horses stalls every day.” For more information about the Miss Ohio pageant visit

Bethel: Three candidates running Continued from page 1 “Talking to community leaders and business owners and just being aware of what’s going on.” Gary Hutchinson, former council member, is running again this year after recovering from health issues. Hutchinson said he decided to run for council because he wants to help resolve financial issues in the village. “When the village wants to spend money, tax payers need to know,” Hutchinson said. He said he would want to keep residents more informed about where their tax dollars are going and would also like to look into the village’s finances. He said electric rates are an area of concern and he would like to find out more about where the village stands on getting out of fiscal emergency. Hutchinson has lived in the village for more than 16 years and was on council for three years. He said being knowledgeable about finance is important, and as a business-

But nothing prepared her for what a pageant was really like, until she got there and experienced it. She said many of the girls in the pageant helped her by being friendly and answering any questions she had. And while the atmosphere was competitive, she said she wasn’t as nervous as she thought she would be as a first-timer. “I made tons of friends,” Bolte said. “I wasn’t very stressed because I didn’t really know what was going on, but I tried to make it fun.” Sixty girls from across Ohio participated in the pageant Oct. 14-15, which included three areas of competition; interview, swimsuit, and evening gown. Judging criteria included poise, confidence, character, and personality. The competition was narrowed down into the top 15 and soon Bolte found herself in the top five. For her top five question she had to talk about the most influential women of her time. She chose First Lady Michelle Obama. “She is a wonderful role



The fiftieth anniversary of the Cincinnati Homebuilders’ Homearama show will be held at Willows Bend in Clermont County; this marks the first time Clermont County has been selected to host the region’s premier home show. The show will be held June 9-24 2012, featuring 15 premier lots; projected show homes will be priced from $600,000 to upwards of $1 million. “This is a beautiful wooded site for the showcase of homes, easily accessible off I-275 on Wards Corner Road in Miami Township,” said Home Builders Association (HBA) of Greater Cincinnati Executive Director Dan Dressman. Two of the homes have already been sold at the Willows Bend location; the site will include a pool and recreation area with easy access to hike-bike trails. “The terrain at Willows Bend is amazing,” said Dressman, pointing out the rolling hills and lush green grass at the


man he feels he is qualified to be back on council. And while Hutchinson points out some areas of concern in the village, he said overall, the village doesn’t have near the problems that other parts of the county are dealing with. “Bethel has always been a friendly town,” Hutchinson said. “It’s just a nice, quiet place to live.” The last write-in candidate is Lucy Shepherd, a long-time resident of the village who said she decided to run because she believes she is qualified and wants to make improvements to the village. “There have been some mistakes made in the past, which put the village in fiscal emergency,” Shepherd said. “I believe I have the ability and training to make sure that doesn’t happen again.” Shepherd has lived in the village since her parents moved here in the 1960s. She was employed by the United States Postal Service for 31 years. She primarily worked in Bethel but was also sent to

oversee finances for other offices on a temporary basis. She is currently working toward a degree in accounting technology. Shepherd said she believes the village has some things to address financially. If elected, she said she will look into the village finances to determine what problems need to be solved. “Until I can inspect the records and make a judgment I don’t know how exactly I will solve problems,” Shepherd said. Shepherd, who raised her children in Bethel, said it is a wonderful place to have a family. She is glad the village still has a movie theater, library, churches and a gas station, and would like to see original stores and houses maintained. “I feel, now, that I have the time to commit to this,” Shepherd said about deciding to run for council. “It is a job, not two one-hour meetings in a month.”

Bill would modify Gold Star license eligibility State Representative Joe Uecker (R-Miami Township) has announced his introduction of legislation that will modify current law in regards to who is eligible for the Gold Star Family License Plate. Under current legislation, only the family of those who died in a combat zone while a member of any branch of the United States may apply to the registrar of motor vehicles for the registration of any passenger car, noncommercial motor vehicle, motor home, or other vehicle of a class approved by the registrar. With my legislation, the law will be expanded to include those who died while serving (regardless of whether or not they were in a combat zone) and to clarify eligibility of those who died as a direct result of their service injury after honorable discharge. The legislation also acts to clarify eligibility of those in the Reserves and in the Ohio National Guard. Gold Star Family License Plates will be inscribed with a gold star and the words “Gold Star Family.” “I was recently approached by a parent who lost a child who was on active duty, and I thought to myself, as a father with three children in the military, would I want to be excluded from this due to certain limitations created by current legislation? No, I wouldn’t, nor does anyone else,” Representative Uecker said. “If this piece of legislation is passed into law it will be more encompassing, ultimately working on behalf of more Ohioans than current legislation does.” Immediate family members who are eligible for the Gold Star License Plate will include spouses, parents, step-parents, persons who acted in loco parentis, siblings (whole, half, or adopted), children (blood, adopted, and step-children), and grandparents. This modification is supported by the Gold Star Mothers Organization.

Patty Ann DeBoard My mom, Patty Ann DeBoard, has been gone 10 years. How is that possible? My brother, Chris, and I were blessed when God put us in her hands. So were my daughter Jamie and lots of kids that considered her their Mom-Mom, too. She always had time for whoever needed her and she listened, truly listened. Her friends were lucky people and cherished her. I often see folks who tell me “I was just thinking about your Mom.” We laugh over memories and it makes me feel good knowing how much she was loved and is still missed. Mom tried to see the best in everyone and treated all with respect. She taught me that life is a gift that is to be shared. Not a day passes that I do not feel her touch in my life and I know I will until we meet again. Mom's friends and family know she loved to write. She left a letter for us to read after she passed. Her final thoughts are still special and I'd like to share these few: Keep those you love close and tell them you care everyday...Don't let the small problems spoil the good times...The joy of love lasts forever. I love you, Mom. Lee Ann DeBoard (Slemp)

Brood production in two of the last three years (2009 and 2011) has been the lowest in on record.” Reynolds said Ohio’s current wild turkey population is approximately 180,000, Only one turkey of either sex may be taken during the entire autumn season. A Fall Turkey Hunting Permit is required. Hours are one-half hour before sunrise to sunset. Shotguns using shot, crossbows, and longbows are permitted. Hunting turkeys over bait is prohibited and turkey must be checked by 11:30 p.m. on the day the bird is shot.

Ohio High School Athletic Association Mission Statement The Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) mission is to regulate and administer interscholastic athletic competition in a fair and equitable manner whittle promoting the values of participation in interscholastic athletics as an integral part of a student’s educational experience. The OHSAA represent its member school by recognizing and promoting athletics, the safety of participants, good citizenship, and lifelong values as the foundation of interscholastic athletics. OHSAA Explains Importance of High School Sports The following was published in a recent issue of the OHSAA (Ohio High School Athletic Association) Magazine. “The Interscholastic athletics programs are inherently educational. They provide valuable lessons for practical situations teamwork, sportsmanship, citizenship, winning and losing, and hard work. “Through participation, students learn self-discipline, personal sacrifice and leadership, build self-confidence, learn to respect others, develop strategic thinking, and develop skills to handle competitive situations. These are the qualities the public expects in students so that they become responsible adults and productive citizens. “There is nothing wrong with striving to be the best. Interscholastic athletic programs must strive to develop all the kids who want to participate to be their best - their best as individuals, as students, as teammates, as members of the community, - not just there best as athletes. “In interscholastic athletics, we win if we develop winners. However, we lose if all we care about is winning. “It is my sincere desire that the families and communities in Ohio will see the benefits of school sports above any other kind of youth sports. This philosophy of educational athletics, which the OHSAA places above all else, is what will produce tomorrow’s good citizens and community leaders, not playing eight games a weekend of hopping around the country from one ‘big’ tournament to the next, “I invite the student-athletes, teachers, coaches, administrators, and families around Ohio to join me and the OHSAA in that belief. Together, we can make school sports what they are meant to be - preparation for the next level of life.” New Richmond New Baseball and Softball Diamonds Players may not wear cleats on the new turf baseball and

softball fields at New Richmond High School. The turf requires molded cleats or turf shoes. Anyone who has unused football or soccer shoes are asked to donate them to the New Richmond High School Athletic Department so these shoes may be worn by players from the visiting teams. Please bring these shoes to the high school office. For more information, contact Doug Foote, New Richmond athletic director, (513) 553-3191 extension 10003.




Sports Briefs

OHSAA Names the Five W’s of Interscholastic Athletics The following was published in a recent issue of the OHSAA (Ohio High School Athletic Association) Magazine. “Who? We’re educational athletics, not big-time promoters. “What? We’re the builders of tomorrow’s community leaders, not farm clubs for college and professional teams. “When? We’re an after-school activity, not a year-round endeavor. These are programs that allow kids to be kids. “Where? Our games should be played locally. There’s plenty of healthy competition where kids can learn and grow through athletics in most of our backyards. We don’t need national schedules to accomplish our purposes. “Why? Because it’s the only right way to do it. Schools offer these programs because they enhance the educational experience of the young people who participate.” OHSAA Announces Important Football Dates The Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) has approved starting and ending dates for high school football for the 2013, 2014, and 2019 seasons. The 2013 and 2014 seasons will see practice begin Aug. 5 with the first game being able to take place Aug. 26 (most openers will probably not take place until Aug. 30), and the state finals will be Dec. 6 and 7. In 2014, practice will begin Aug. 4 and the first game may take place Aug. 25 (most openers probably will take place Aug. 29) and the state finals will be Dec. 5 and 6. A Message from the Ohio High School Athletic Association The following article recently appeared in the Ohio High School Athletic Association’s OHSAA Magazine. It was written by Daniel Ross, Ph. D. “I vividly remember a conversation I had with a high school soccer coach from Northeast Ohio on the topic of non-school teams. He made a statement that left a big impression on me and illustrates a significant obstacle that many high school coaches are forced to work around. “‘I spend the first month of every season trying to break the bad habits that my players get into while playing club soccer,” the coach said. “I knew exactly what he meant. So many of the things that are at the core of school sports do not exist in club, travel, AAU, or Junior Olympic sports. Things like a focus on academics, sportsmanship, community pride, and ensuring that the coaches have completed an education program.” The proliferation of non-interscholastic teams often creates a real dilemma for student-athletes, coaches, and parents. It is something our staff here at the OHSAA discusses on a regular basis because, in some cases, non-school coaches make unrealistic State Football Championships The Ohio High School Athletic Association Board of Directors has approved Stark County and Columbus as the site of the upcoming state championship football games. Stark County (Canton, Fawcett Stadium, and Massillon, Paul Brown Stadium) will be the site for 2012 and 2013 championship games and Columbus, Ohio Stadium, on the campus of Ohio State University, will be the site for the 2014 and 2015 championship finals. The dates will be Nov. 30/Dec. 1, 2012; Dec. 6/7, 2013; Dec. 5/6, 2014; and Dec. 4/5, 2015. Ten-Star Boys and Girls Basketball Camps The Ten Star All Star Basketball Camp is accepting applications.

“Agencies provide transportation for seniors” Senior Services is primary transportation provider for seniors

A few years ago, a lady called to thank the Clermont Senior Services’ staff for providing transportation for her father, who had recently passed away. She said we took him to dialysis three days a week for ten years! This lady worked full time and still had children living at home. She could not afford to quit her job to take her father to dialysis. Yet without it he would die. The CSS transportation service helped not only the senior, but his daughter and her family, and her employer too. This is only one example of how critical transportation can be to older adults. Transportation is one of the major services provided by Clermont Senior Services. Clermont Senior Services has been the primary provider of transportation and other services for older adults in Clermont County for 40 years. Last year the agency provided more than 5,500 trips, taking seniors where they needed to

go. Medical trips are the number one priority. Door-to-door service is provided, and wheelchair service is available. Please call at least three

Mamie has lived in her home for 32 years and has no plans to leave, even though she can’t get around as she used to. A motorized scooter helps her move about and a home health aide comes in for six hours a week to help her with housework and bathing. She receives Meals on Wheels and always wears a device to call for help in an emergency. These services, plus some help from her family, make it possible for Mamie to stay at home. Without this help, she would most likely have to move to a nursing facility – something neither she nor her family wants. Mamie receives help from PASSPORT, an in-home care program for frail adults age 60 and older who have a low income. PASSPORT is provided through Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio. In 2010, the program helped 3,176 seniors in southwestern Ohio, including 337 in Clermont County. Throughout Ohio, more than 30,000 seniors are enrolled in PASSPORT and the program continues to grow. As PASSPORT grows in popularity, the percentage of older Ohioans who are receiving care in nursing homes has decreased from 90% in 1992

A trusted resource since 1971

to 58% today. Clearly, seniors prefer to stay in their homes for as long as possible. Ohio wants to shift the balance toward in-home care even more, not only because it’s compassionate, but because it costs less for the taxpayers to help seniors at home rather than in nursing homes. PASSPORT services include adult day care, care management, emergency response, home-delivered meals, home modifications, medical equipment, homemaking, personal care, transportation and more. Services are free of charge for eligible seniors, although some payment may apply depending on income. To be eligible, PASSPORT applicants must meet income and asset guidelines and receive a face-to-face assessment from Council on Aging. No one likes to think about getting old and needing help. But we do hope that we will have choices about where and how we will live as we age. For most of us, the first choice is to stay in our own home for as long as we can. To ask about PASSPORT or other services for older adults, contact Council on Aging at 513721-1025 or visit ""

These books are good for a Halloween shiver TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER THE BOOKWORM SEZ

in her new book “The Little Book of True Ghost Stories,” she tells how she finally embraced her talents and she relates stories of some of the specters she’s met, including the famous ones that hung around to make sure things went hauntingly well after they died. I liked this book because Bodine also exorcises

a few ghostly myths. If you’re looking for a spectral site to visit this year, well, you’re in luck. There are lots of guides around to use, but two newer ones mysteriously appeared to me: “The World’s Most Haunted Places” by Jeff Belanger is updated and revised this Halloween and it doesn’t just give you phone numbers and addresses, it also includes some hair-raising haunters and stories of famous places that are filled with phantoms. I loved the dark photographs in this book as well as the tour information: when to go, what to look for, and other helpful hints for going a-haunting. If you dare, that is…

And if that doesn’t give you enough of an idea where to get scared, turn to “The World’s Creepiest Places” by Dr. Bob Curran, illustrated by Ian Daniels. Where the above book looks at places filled with ghosts, this one lists places filled with malevolence and just plain weirdness. The legends in this book seem to be more ancient and the sites may be a little harder to reach; still, you’ll want it just for the cool illustrations. Lastly, you don’t have to travel to read “Haunted Wisconsin” by Michael Norman, a classic that’s newly updated. In this continuation of a book dynasty started 30 years



It happens every time: you just turn off the light and hunker down in bed, when you hear a BUMP you can’t identify. If you can, you poke your spouse to go check it out. If you’re brave, you go look yourself. But if you’re reading any of these books for Halloween, you just pull up the blankets, screw your eyes shut, and pray you can go back to sleep someday… Author Echo Bodine is a psychic, albeit a reluctant one – and who wouldn’t be? Who wants to see ghosts and hear the voices of the dead? Still,

ago, Norman gives readers
