Fallen Heroes Memorial has been unveiled Memorial honors 14 servicemen who died serving their country Sun staff

The Clermont County Veterans’ Service Commission, along with the Batavia Township Board of Trustees, unveiled the Fallen Heroes Memorial on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. The Veterans Service Commission proposed the idea for a memorial to be installed near the Humvee Memorial site at the Batavia Township Community Center, and Batavia Trustees thought it would be a great addition to already the memorial installed. The memorial honors the 14 Clermont County men who died serving the country from the Persian Gulf War forward. “On behalf of the township this is a great honor for us,” Trustee Jim Sauls said about unveiling the memorial. “When we built the Humvee Memorial, that was great, but we couldn’t be more sure of this.” Trustees, Veterans’ Service Commission officials, as well as friends and family members of the fallen men were present for the unveiling of the memorial.

The names of the men were read out loud and family members were given an opportunity to place a rose beside the memorial in honor of their loved-one. “Our hearts go out to you all and we want to thank you for raising such heroes,” Commissioner Bob Proud said before names were read. Staff Sergeant Chuck Kiser (Iraq), Specialist Gregory Missman (Afghanistan), Staff Sergeant Matthew Maupin (Iraq), Specialist Joseph Bauer (Afghanistan), Staff Sergeant Tony Wojciechowski (Iraq), Lance Corporal Nick Erdy (Iraq), Captain Tyler Swisher (Iraq), Lance Corporal Bryan Taylor (Iraq), Lance Corporal Billy Spencer (Iraq), Sergeant Phillip McNeill (Iraq), Captain David Seth Mitchell (Afghanistan), Specialist Jacob Dohrenwend, Senior Airman Todd Rose and Lance Corporal James Lumpkins (Saudi Arabia) were all honored for their service. The names of the men, as well as their dates of birth and death, are engraved on the memorial, which was created by Rolf Monuments. For Staff Sgt. Matt Maupin, whose date of death is unknown, the stone

way they’ll never be forgotten.” For many family members seeing the memorial was bitter-sweet. While it brought

Bethel council opposes beetle plan Members of council feel host tree removal is an abuse of power BY KRISTIN BEDNARSKI Sun staff

Bethel Village Council members passed a resolution Nov. 14 in opposition to the proposed, preferred Asian longhorned beetle eradication plan for Clermont and Brown counties. Council members discussed their feelings about the plan at their council meeting. “This ALB thing is starting to affect all of us,” Councilwoman Donna Gunn said. “I drove down Swings Corner at about 5:15 and it just made me sick. We need to stop this in its tracks.” Gunn also read a poem entitled “I am the tree.” She said it is important for everyone to think about what the proposed eradication efforts would mean for the village if allowed to continue. The eradication plan proposed by the United States Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health

Inspection Service and supported by the Ohio Department of Agriculture, includes the removal of all 5,069 trees infested by the Asian longhorned beetle. In addition, USDA-APHIS is in the process of completing an environmental assessment, in which they intend to propose the removal of an estimated 50,000 high-risk host trees in close proximity to the infested trees. According to USDAAPHIS officials, the removal of the high-risk host trees will ensure that all trees that are infested, or could be infested, are removed from the area. “Look around folks, because it will never look like this in our lifetime again,” Gunn said about the removal of host trees. Councilman Rus Whitley said he has two farms that are affected by the beetle. “I'm going to let them take what they have to,” Whitley said. “Don't let them take our trees that far out, that are not affected.” And while APHIS officials believe host tree removal is the best way to prevent future infestations in Ohio and surrounding states, residents,

who could lose many trees, expressed their opposition to this at a Nov. 7 public meeting. In the wake of the meeting, council members passed Resolution 913 Nov. 14 to oppose the plan “whereas the plan to remove in excess of 50,000 healthy trees in addition to the 5,000 known infested trees is a blatant abuse of power and is an unnecessary and unacceptable plan.” The resolution states that the village withdraws its support of the proposed Asian longhorned beetle eradication plan. It also suggests the use of a chemical treatment on host trees as an alternative to removing them. The resolution, along with a letter from Mayor James Dick was sent to Governor John Kasich. Mayor Dick's letter highlighted the infestation timeline, the proposed method of eradication and discussed how the infestation was handled by APHIS officials. “It is apparent based upon public meetings hosted locally by the USDA that the ODA, Division of Plant Health is leaving the specifics of determining of the eradication

Humane Society dinner auction was a sellout $40,000 raised for homeless animals BY KRISTIN BEDNARSKI Sun staff

The Clermont County Humane Society hosted its annual dinner auction Nov. 5 and raised more than $40,000 that will be used to help animals that don’t have a home. “It was a wonderful, wonderful event,” Debbie Siegroth, development director at the humane society, said. “To have so many people attend and support the cause was just unbelievable.” Siegroth said more than 350 people attended the sellout event, which was held at Norlyn Manor in Batavia. Guests had the opportunity to bid on silent auction items, enjoy a sit-down dinner and bid on live auction items throughout the evening. “We had many wonderful live auction items and silent auction items,” Siegroth said. “This committee worked so hard.” She said items ranged from watches and jewelry to a signed photograph of the Apollo 11 crew. In addition,

there was a raffle held that included a trip to Las Vegas, Nev., an iPod and more. There were also many pet items to choose from at the auction. Siegroth said many sponsors also helped make the event possible and successful, including Terry and Jean Dalhover, Ed and Nadora Hill, Sporty's and many more. And while the money raised at the auction is crucial for the humane society, which Siegroth said relies on donations to operate, the auction also provided an opportunity to spread the word about animals that need adoption. “They had sheets with animals that need to be adopted on the tables for people to view,” Siegroth said. “So they could see what kind of animals we have at the shelter that want to be loved.” Siegroth said she knows of at least one animal that was adopted that night. And her goal for the shelter is to be the place of choice for anyone See Auction, Page 3

efforts here in Ohio in the hands of the federal government with little regard for the input of local citizens and local and county governments,” Mayor Dick wrote. Mayor Dick also raised concerns about the village, township and county governments not being involved in eradication plans, the inconsistency in the eradication plan that was presented to affected residents and the general public and more. He concluded by asking for a quick response, as eradication efforts began Nov. 14, the same day the letter was addressed. While local governments and residents will have opportunities to provide suggestions and concerns with eradication efforts, Brett Gates, public information officer for ODA said the authority to handle invasive pests are highlighted in the Ohio Revised Code section 927.70. “The director of ODA has the authority in the Ohio Revised Code to get rid of any destructive pest,” Gates said. “We are following the guidance of APHIS and we have this authority to eradicate such a destructive pest.”

Local scout project benefits shelter A 14-year-old Anderson Township Boy Scout took part in a bake sale, held a car wash, and recycled aluminum cans to raise $700 for improvements to the cat room at the Clermont County Animal Shelter, located at 4025 Filager Road in Batavia Township. Robbie Himebaugh used the money for materials to build 15-inch tall, 3-foot-wide risers that are under cat cages at the adoption center. “It’s a lot easier now for workers at the shelter to clean the cages and for kids to see inside them,” said Himebaugh. Robbie completed the project over the summer, working toward the rank of Eagle Scout. “For five solid weeks this summer I couldn’t use my garage because it was covered with lumber and sawdust,” said Robbie’s dad, Jim Himebaugh. “I am very pleased with how he worked on and followed through with this project.” “Robbie, his mentors and fellow troop members did a great job pulling this project together,” said Clermont Animal Shelter Director Kim Naegel. “The transformation to the cat room is astounding. Raising the cages enables us to better showcase the cats and invites potential adopter interaction. The cats love their new higher vantage point and allows them do what they do best - show off!” For information on adopting one of the many animals currently housed at the Clermont County Animal Shelter, call (513) 732-8854.

A freak October snowstorm that dumped up to 32 inches of snow on the New England states two weeks ago was responsible for 29 deaths and caused power outages to 2 million people. Ohio hasn’t seen snow yet this season, but with overnight temperatures dipping in the 30s, and chilly, frosty mornings, we know that winter is on its way. The Ohio Committee for Severe Weather Awareness (OCSWA) encourages everyone to take the time now to prepare themselves and their homes for the upcoming season. In a coordinated effort with OCSWA, Governor John R. Kasich has proclaimed Nov. 13-19 as Ohio’s Winter Safety Awareness Week. This is an ideal time for homes, schools, businesses and organizations to update their safety plans and disaster supply kits and prepare for winter-related incidents. “Don’t let winter catch you off-guard. Winterize your homes and vehicles now, before the first major snowfall hits,” said Nancy Dragani, executive director of the Ohio Emergency Management Agency. “Heavy snow and ice can bring down power lines for days. So, get ready now, just in case. Ensure your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are working. Ensure you have enough stored food and water to supply your family for several days. Review your emergency plans. Purchase a NOAA Weather Radio to be notified of storm watches and warnings in your area.” To help prepare for the upcoming winter months, OCSWA recommends the following:

Prepare your home for winter. Cut and remove lowhanging and dead tree branches. Ice, snow and strong winds can cause tree limbs to break and fall. Have your gutters cleaned. Snow and ice can build up quickly if gutters are clogged with debris. Have auxiliary heaters, furnaces and fireplaces maintenance checked or serviced before using. If using a portable generator, read instructions thoroughly to guard against carbon monoxide poisoning. Review your homeowner’s insurance policy; consider your need for flood insurance. Prepare winter disaster kits for the home and vehicle. Refresh stored nonperishable foods and bottled water. Change the batteries in your smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and radios. Winter emergency kits should include warm clothing, blankets, flashlights, new batteries, coats, hats, gloves, a battery-operated or handcranked radio, first aid kit, and enough nonperishable food and water (one gallon per person, per day) to sustain each family member for at least three days. Have stored food, bottled water and supplies for your pets, as well. Invest in a NOAA Public Alert/Weather Radio. Every home, school and business should have a tone-alert weather radio with a battery back-up. Weather and public alert radios are programmed to automatically sound an alert during public safety and severe weather events. Click on for additional information. Update your disaster preparedness plans. Every home,

school, business and organization should have written plans for the different types of disasters that can occur. Review the plans with the entire family or staff. Everyone should know what to do in the event of a snow or ice storm, a prolonged power outage, a flood or fire. Post contact information for your local emergency management

agency. Prepare and practice drills that require sheltering in place and evacuation. Update your emergency contact list and establish a meeting place outside of the home, school or business, where others will know where to find or meet you. The Ohio Committee for Severe Weather Awareness is

an advocate for emergency preparedness and is comprised of representatives from the American Red Cross; Emergency Management Association of Ohio; National Weather Service; Hands On, Central Ohio; Ohio Department of Public Safety-Emergency Management Agency; Ohio Insurance Institute: Ohio

News Network; Ohio Department of Commerce – State Fire Marshal; and the Ohio Departments of Aging, Education, Health, Insurance, Natural Resources, and Transportation. For more information on winter weather safety and severe weather preparedness, visit OCSWA’s site at



Don’t get caught in the cold – get ready for winter





Page 10 - The Sunday Sun - November 20, 2011


Ted Nugent made cat scratch fever (actually called cat scratch disease) nearly a household name with his song in the late seventies, but most people still know little about this infection other than it involves a fever spread by cat scratches. In fact, it involves infection by a bacterium called Bartonella henselae, which is spread by fleas. Classically, cats transmit the organism when they are parasitized by fleas, scratch themselves, and get infected flea dirt (digested host’s blood excreted by fleas) in their claws, and scratch a person or another cat with their dirty claws. The Human Disease Infection with Bartonella henselae in the immunocompetent (healthy) person leads to cat scratch disease. The inoculation site (a scratch from a claw containing bits of flea dirt) develops a small red bump called a papule. About 2 to 3 weeks following contact with the infected cat, the lymph node in the area of the contact will swell and become painful and a fever develops. These signs generally resolve on their own and the condition is minor. If the patient does not have a competent immune system (HIV positive, pregnant), one of several much more serious syndromes can result. The infection goes deeper into the body causing spleen enlargement, and potentially encephalitis, heart valve infection. How likely is it for a cat to beinfected? Since fleas carry the bacteria, cats with insufficient flea control are at highest risk. This means cats living in climates that are warm and humid (conditions fleas thrive best in) are most likely to be infected. If conditions are right, up to 40 percent of cats in an area may be infected. If a person is diagnosed with cat scratch disease, there is a 90 percent chance that the cats they own will be found infected as well. This sounds somewhat concerning for the cat-owners in a flea area but it is important to realize that an infected cat cannot transmit the infection without a claw full of flea dirt. If the fleas are removed from the infected cat, there will be no flea dirt in the coat and no risk of disease transmission. Do Infected Cats get Sick? Several illnesses seem to have been associated with Bartonella infection (fever, deep eye inflammation, lymph node enlargement, muscle pain, reproductive failure, and bacterial heart valve deposits called endocarditis.) Bartonella henselae infection may be one of main causes of the progressive oral dis-


ease of cats called plasma cell stomatitis. It seems that cats infected with both Bartonella henselae and the feline immunodeficiency virus have an increased incidence of this condition compared to what would be expected from either infection alone. Bartonella infection may be at the root of numerous chronic inflammatory conditions of cats. With such regionally high numbers of infected cats (up to 40 percent), it is difficult to prove one way or the other whether there is a real association or just coincidence. Is my Cat Infected? Possibly. Have your veterinarian test your cat for the disease. Prevention of Human Infection: Guidelines from the Centers For Disease Control

generally advised, HIVinfected persons should avoid rough play with cats and situations in which scratches are likely. Any cat-associated wound should be washed promptly. Cats should not be allowed to lick open wounds or cuts of HIV-infected persons. Care of cats should include flea control.

Girl Scouts collect donations Girl Scouts in Clermont County raised more than $150 and collected nearly four boxes of canned good donations through a community Skating Party Nov. 13. More than 140 Girl Scouts and family members attended the event at Beechmont Rollarena. The Skating Party was organized by the Clermont Overlook Service Unit, which consists of Girl Scout troops in the western part of the county. Participants donated nonperishable food items for MercyWorks, a program through Vineyard Eastgate Community Church that aids those in need in Clermont County. Collected items will be used in the MercyWorks food pantry. Proceeds from admission will be donated to the Family Partnership Campaign, a Girl Scout program that funds local programs and helps sponsor Girl Scouts who need financial assistance.

Prevention of Exposure HIV-infected persons, particularly those who are severely immunosuppressed, are at unusually high risk for developing relatively severe disease due to infection with Bartonella, which can be transmitted from cats. These persons should consider the potential risks of cat ownership. Persons who acquire a cat should adopt or purchase an animal aged greater than 1 year that is in good health.

friend, but that’s okay. There’s plenty to eat and lots of room for two more. Jim sneaks a taste of what’s on the stove, and Mom laughs. Jim has done this before. Then everyone hears the sound of a horn honking. Two more people arrive and Grandpa adds another table at the end. Another guest calls to see if she can bring her cousin and her mother. Every time someone asks if there’s room for an extra, the answer is always “Yes! Of course!” But as the table gets longer and the room seems smaller, one young host gets a little worried. Grandma didn’t make a lot of pies. There weren’t many potatoes boiling on the stove, and the turkey wasn’t very big – was it? Would there be enough food at this Thanksgiving table? Sometimes, particularly when you’re a kid, it’s hard to separate the “thanks” of Thanksgiving from the legends, the parades, and the fun. But this sweetly gentle little story, told in rhyme, explains the real meaning behind why we gather. In author Mark Kimball

Moulton’s holiday house, there’s love, warmth, and welcome as the table slowly expands to make room for every new arrival. I loved the quiet worry in the words of Moulton’s young narrator and I loved the simplicity of Moulton’s story-poem, but neither would be the same without artist David Wenzel. One look at Wenzel’s illustrations, and you can almost hear the laughter in this perfectly thankful book. Two-to-8-year-olds will

love “Thanksgiving Graces,” but I don’t think anyone of any age would mind a readaloud this holiday. Whether yours is a feast for two or a fete for two thousand, this is a book to share. The Bookworm is Terri Schlichenmeyer. Terri has been reading since she was 3years-old and she never goes anywhere without a book. She lives on a hill in Wisconsin with two dogs and 12,000 books.

Talk about your shared financial picture It’s Thanksgiving week. And if you’re fortunate, you can look around your Thanksgiving table and see several generations of your family. Of course, as you know, many types of cohesiveness are involved in knitting a family together. But one connection that frequently gets ignored, at least in terms of family dialogue, is the financial linkage between parents and their children on one hand, and these same parents and their parents on the other. So if you find yourself in this “sandwich” group, it may be worth considering your financial position. If your children are very young, you might want to start by emphasizing the importance of three separate concepts: saving, spending and sharing. If you give them an allowance, or if you pay them to do some minor tasks around the household, you can encourage them to put the money in three separate containers. The “spending” jar is for them to use as they choose, the “saving” jar is to be put in some type of savings or investment account and the “sharing” jar is to be used for contributions to charitable causes. You can extend the spending, saving and sharing themes by encouraging your kids to spend wisely, watch how their savings grow and feel pride in the work done by the charitable groups their dollars support. Later, when your kids are older, and can earn money by babysitting, mowing lawns or working part-time, you can further encourage good financial habits by offering to match their contributions to a Roth IRA. And be sure to discuss the different types of investments available; they may enjoy learning about the ways in which they can participate in the financial markets. Above all else, talk to them about the importance of developing good financial skills and how these skills will play a part in your family’s overall well being. Now, let’s turn to your parents. If they’re elderly, you may find that talking to them about financial issues may be considerably more challenging than talking about these issues with your children. It’s unfortunate, but true: People are sensitive about money and often don’t want to talk about it. You may find that you need to be persistent, especially if

The Second Annual Mueller Family Benefit for Spina Bifida was started after an unexpected cancellation of their daughter’s wedding in 2010. The family decided to turn something negative into a positive by hosting a benefit in place of the reception. The benefit was a huge success, raising nearly $6,000 for the small association. Because of the success of last year’s benefit, the Mueller family decided to turn this into an annual fundraiser for the Association.


For as far back as you can remember, your parents have taught you that sharing is the right thing to do. You’ve always been told to let others play nicely with your toys and look gently at your books. If you have candy, you’re encouraged to give someone else a bite. You might share your day, a silly story, a snuggly blanket, a seat, or a box of colors. When you have abundance, it’s always nice to share. And as you’ll see in the book “Thanksgiving Graces” by Mark Kimball Moulton, illustrated by David Wenzel, when you give, you also get back. It’s Thanksgiving Day, and everyone’s getting ready. The turkey smells soooo good in the oven and the whole family is helping set the table. Grandma’s making pies when there’s a knock on the door. It’s the neighbor, Charlie, and she asks him to stay for dinner. There’s plenty of food and plenty of room at the table for him. Charlie says he’d be glad to stay, but only if Grandma and Mom would let him pitch in and help. He rolls up his sleeves and plunges his arms into hot soapy water. Having someone to wash dishes is always a big help. When the door opens a minute later, it’s big brother Jim, home from college and he’s not alone. He brought a

your loved one's wishes and well-being, it’s probably worth the effort. Article submitted by S. Christian Wilks, an Investment Representative with Edward Jones, Milford.

Gabbard's Mt. Orab Ford and Williamsburg High School raised $4,090 for sports and band boosters Test-drive fund-raising event generated much-needed money Gabbard’s Mt. Orab Ford , Williamsburg High School and members of the local community raised $4,090 for Williamsburg High School at a recent test-drive event, as part of Ford Motor Company’s Drive One 4 UR School program. For each of the 164 area residents that test-drove a Ford vehicle September 17th, Gabbard’s Mt. Orab Ford and Ford Motor Company donated $20, with

funds going towards the Sports and Band Boosters. Since the program’s inception in 2007, the Drive One 4 UR School program has generated over $7 million in donations for high schools nationwide. The money raised during the Drive One 4 UR School program has helped ensure that extracurricular actives like sports and music programs continue in local communities despite budgetary constraints and funding cuts. “I am more than thrilled that so many people from the local community turned out to support Williamsburg High School, and I’ve never been more proud to be a Ford dealer. Participants had the chance to take a fun, casual drive in one of our vehicles, while lending our students and community a muchneeded helping hand,” said Gerald Gabbard, President of Gabbard’s Mt. Orab Ford.
