Army reservist Sergeant Josh Miller recently returned from Afghanistan where he served as a civil affairs liaison between the military and the local population. The 2000 Glen Este graduate said he was focused on grass roots efforts to build infrastructure and promote local businesses in the Kunar Province near the Pakistan border. “There’s a big push for renewable energy. It’s more expensive to start but it’s easier to maintain,” Miller said. “We also provide business development micro-grants.” Miller said the grants are used for businesses that will fit the community, such as potato farms. The Army is also taking on projects that are in line with the Afghan culture. “We have refurbished Mosques and built schools, we do what fits with in the culture,” Miller said. Afghanistan poses a unique problem for soldiers like Miller because much of their rural government is tribal based and the tribal leaders are unaccustomed to yielding to a higher level of government. He compared his role to that of the county commissioners in the sense that he was asked to coordinate projects that affect the whole community.

University of Cincinnati beginning in January. He said he is unsure what specific field of study he would like to pursue, but he would like to continue to be involved in civil affairs. “There’s such a broad scope of things you can get involved in,” Miller said. “With civil affairs you can get involved in what ever you want.” The Clermont County Commissioners honored

Bethel Village Council discussed the difference between village zoning regulations and private subdivision restrictions at the request of a resident of Easter Valley subdivision. Albert Wass, who lives at 314 Faith Way, asked the village to halt construction on the home of his next door neighbor because he said the home is to be built too close to the street, according to the subdivision restrictions. “This lot 13, for over two years the residents have been told it’s too small to build a house,” Wass said, “because they started building a bigger house on the other side of it. That swamp back there stopped the bulldozer operator. He told us ‘I’m not going back there and taking those trees down.’ They changed the house plans. They built a house closer to the street. So now they shrunk this lot 13 so there’s not 80 feet side to side where they want to build.” Lot 13 has an angled property line to the west. Wass said the plat requires that a home must be back far enough from the street to so that there is an 80 foot distance between the property lines at the start of the home. Village Solicitor George

“We have to appease both sides and there is a lot of politics involved,” Miller said. Miller performed a similar role in Iraq where he served in 2006 and 2007. At that time he was stationed in Baghdad. “It was a lot easier in Iraq because they already had infrastructure in place,” Miller said. Miller said that during both his deployments support from home made his service easier. “The support is crucial. When you’re over there you

don’t want to be distracted by the things at home,” Miller said. Little things like his father mowing his grass or packages of American treats from the Yellow Ribbon Foundation were very important to him. Miller thanked the Whole in My Heart support group, the Yellow Ribbon Foundation, the Thank You Foundation and the Veterans of Foreign Wars for their work in supporting the troops and their families.

He said he is very grateful for the support Clermont County residents show to their soldiers. “Regardless of their feelings on the war they support our soldiers to the end,” Miller said. “And that’s what America is all about because whether you agree or not you are entitled to your opinion and you are not penalized for voicing that opinion. Thank you and keep it up.” Miller will be using the G.I. Bill to take classes at the

Niehaus tells Chamber of Commerce state cuts are coming Which programs will be going under the knife not specified BY BRETT ROLLER Sun staff

State Senator Tom Niehaus addressed the Clermont Chamber of Commerce and students from the Live Oaks campus of Great Oaks Career Center Friday, Nov. 12. The Senator from New Richmond will likely be elected as President of the Senate when the Republicans choose their leaders on Nov. 30. Niehaus said the GOP is already hard at work preparing for the power shift in

January. He emphasized the Republicans’ focus on fiscal responsibility and creating a business friendly environment in the state. “We clearly heard the voters last Tuesday and we will work to bring fiscal responsibility back to Ohio,” Niehaus said. “This is a very interesting time in terms of transition and a very challenging time in terms of the budget.” Newly elected Governor John Kasich will need to work

with Niehaus and state Representative William Batchelder, who has been named speaker of the now Republican controlled House of Representatives as they put together the next biennial budget for the state. With the loss of so-called bailout money from the federal government the General Assembly will be looking at an $8 billion budget deficit next year. “That’s going to be quite a challenge,” Niehaus said. “I see representatives from local schools and a number of government agencies here today and I’m sure they’re all worried about how we will bal-

ance the budget and get spending under control without new revenue coming in.” Niehaus said that while there will be no tax increases, the state is anticipating new revenue from each of the four voter-approved casinos as early as 2011 and he said video lottery terminals are once again being considered for approval at Ohio’s horse racing tracks. Niehaus said the casino funds will likely replace the local funding the state will need to cut to balance the budget. Additionally, he said state revenue is up $100 million See Niehaus, Page 2

Continued from page 1 except for maybe in 2007 and 2008,” Niehaus said. Increased revenue will not be enough to make up for the 16 percent deficit in the current $51 billion budget, and so all local agencies that receive revenue from the state will be considered for budget cuts. “I’m not a fan of an across the board 16 percent cut because the inefficient programs will look at it as no big deal while those that are already running efficiently will be effected greatly,” Niehaus said. Instead, the General Assembly leaders will meet with Kasich to evaluate each and every state funded program. Niehaus said they will look at the need the program was designed to meet and if it is not delivering the services it should they will explore other ways of meeting that need. One such program of interest to the chamber of commerce members was the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. Ohio is one of the few

remaining states in the country with a public BWC system. Niehaus could not say right now if there are any programs that may be eliminated entirely or turned over to the private sector, but he said they may find a few before the budget is finalize. “There may be a program that was created 10 years ago to meet a legitimate need, but now that need no longer exists,” Niehaus said. “It’s too early to tell what will happen. The voters have asked us to re-evaluate everything we’re doing to make sure each program is providing the services the program was designed to.” Governor Ted Strickland’s biggest emphasis during his tenure was on education and he heralded the education changes made in the biennial budget passed in 2009 as a major step forward, especially the emphasis on his evidence based model and mandatory all day Kindergarten. As a new Governor takes his place many schools are uncertain of their future. “There has been no discus-

sion of education reform yet, but I think the evidence based model will go away,” Niehaus said. “The problem with it was none of us could find the evidence and if you talk with schools who were forced to add all day Kindergarten, like Milford, their students didn’t show a need for it.” Niehaus said there is substantial evidence that providing educating experiences to children at a young age is vital for their development but parental involvement will have the biggest impact along with small class sizes. According to Niehaus each community should be allowed to decide for themselves what methods will have the greatest impact on the children they serve because what may work well in Bethel may not work well in Milford. education “Strickland’s reform was not true reform,” Niehaus said. “It was a union jobs bill.” Education is one of three services that make up about 75 percent of the state budget, what Niehaus referred to as Ed, Med, and Incarceration. He said it will be impossible balance the budget without making cuts to education, Medicaid, and the prison system. Mental Health and Recover Board Director Karen Scherra expressed her concerns over rumors that General Assembly would be focusing on consolidating a number of state agencies and the effect that would

have on the operation of the local agencies that receive funding through them. Niehaus said there are always a large number of rumors flying from Columbus and nothing has been decided yet. However, he said consolidation is one option they may consider. He pointed to the cooperation between government agencies in Clermont County as a fine example of how consolidation can work well at the local level. “Money has been spent very efficiently as resources have dwindled over the last 10 years,” Niehaus said. “It wasn’t always like that. What we will be doing in Columbus is asking how do we leverage our resources so they will provide the most benefit.” Niehaus said he has already begun working hard with the new administration in preparation for Jan. 1. “There is a concerted effort to work together now and not wait until January,” Niehaus said. “There has not been a good working relationship between the house and the Senate over the last couple of years. Now there’s no excuse.” While Niehaus currently serves in the second highest position in the Senate as the President Pro Tempore, as President he will work with the governor and speaker of the House of Representatives directly on a regular basis and will be in a position to have a greater impact on policies.

Bethel: Restrictions Continued from page 1 Leicht said the 80 feet requirement is stipulated by the subdivision restrictions and as long as the home is 40 feet from the street it will comply with the Bethel zon-

ing regulations. “All we have authority to do with our police power is to make sure the code is followed as far as setback. Now, as far as the subdivision may have more stringent regulations than our zoning code. We cannot enforce those more stringent regulations. It is not our position to enforce subdivision regulations (or restrictions),” Leicht said. Mayor James Dick pointed out that Wass had asked the village to intervene on behalf of the property owners previously to address the drainage issues within the subdivision that Wass said led to his neighbor’s home being moved closer to the street. “This seems to be, in all frankness, running in the same direction as the drainage issue, if I could be so blunt, in which you seem to want the village to be involved in private property matters,” Dick said. “Your anger would be much more effective if it was directed at either the builder or the developer, those persons that are responsible for the enforcement of things that are within the subdivision development plan that are outside of our zoning code. Coming here and looking for the people who work for the public and are on the public dime to go and insert themselves into a private matter is not somewhere our village is going to go.” Leicht said it is possible that when the subdivision was laid out it is possible that it fell under a zoning code that required homes to have a width of 80 feet at the building line, however the zoning code was changed in 2006 and that requirement was dropped. He said if property owners bought land in the subdivision anticipating that the requirement would be in place when their neighbors built their homes, they would need to go to civil court so determine if they can enforce that requirement.

Continued from page 1 Miller at their Monday, Nov. 22 meeting. “We want to commend you serving and welcome you home,” Commissioner Bob Proud said. “We are so dag gone proud of you.” Helping welcome Miller home were Frank Morrow of the Veterans Service Commission, Clermont County Sheriff A.J. “Tim” Rodenberg, Thank You Foundation executive director Sarah Rieke, and Congresswoman Jean Schmidt. Schmidt thanked Miller for giving up his time, talent, and treasure to serve his country.

This drawing shows how to shear just above last years fork, and also shows the most natural mounding shape. (Illustration by Marjorie Boehme)

How to shear shrubs BY STEVE BOEHME The best time to shear or trim evergreen shrubs like holly, boxwood and yew is in the late fall or winter. It’s too late in the season now for them to grow new shoots, so you don’t have to worry about winter burn on tender new growth. Flowering shrubs can be sheared back now as well, with a few exceptions. There’s a right way and a wrong way to shear or trim shrubs. Whether you like them in tidy and neat geometric shapes or want them to look less formal but still well-groomed, there are certain rules you should follow. First, the shape you select should be widest at the bottom. This is so that sunlight can reach the entire plant for as many hours as possible for best foliage and bloom. If you undercut your shrubs you create shadows where the plants cast shade

on themselves, and they will get spindly and thin at the bottom. We like a mounding or “gumdrop” shape best. It looks natural because most shrubs naturally grow wider at the base and narrower at the top, like a pyramid. Another rule is to cut back each year to just above last year’s cut. Each time you cut a branch the plant forms a fork, doubling or tripling the number of branches. This makes the plant fuller and fluffier, with more blooms. If you are afraid to shear far enough the plant will get gangly and misshapen. If you shear back too far, cutting last year’s forks off, the plant can be damaged and have bare spots or long suckers. Naturally mounding flowering shrubs like spirea, potentilla, viburnum and barberry bloom on their new growth and will bloom more heavily if they are sheared

back. Plants that carry their flower buds through the winter, like lilacs and forsythia, are the exception and should be sheared after they bloom each spring. Forsythia doesn’t look good sheared into shapes, and will not bloom nearly as well. It wants to put out long, graceful shoots in every direction like a fountain. Every few years you should really cut it back almost to the ground after it blooms. The same is true of pussywillow. Butterfly bushes, crape myrtle and shrub roses (like Knockout) should be left alone until they start to sprout in spring, and then cut back hard to the healthiest new shoots. Cutting them in fall or winter invites winter burn, and can even kill butterfly bushes. At best you’ll have a lot of winter kill and have to trim them a second time in early spring. One other point is that once evergreen shrubs get big enough to crowd each other you should let them join into an “informal hedge,” rather than maintaining a gap between each plant. Narrow gaps don’t let enough sun in, so you’ll wind up with bare spots for your trouble. It’s easier and more attractive to let the plants grow into each other and just shear the outside.

When my Joni lost her life, I didn’t think I could handle it. But with Tim’s precious love and help, I’m now able to keep my candle lit. Joni was my first born, And eventually we became best friends. I felt that losing her was “The Ultimate Loss” But I’ve learned that our love never ends. We grew up more like sisters, I was just a child when she was born. And at each other we both have sworn. Joni always made it hard on herself, Living up to being a dingy blonde. But she was such a loving person Who could hold to a special bond. Just to show you what I mean, At 12, with the death of her dear friend, She carried Lisa with herself Up until the very end. Seldom is felt that strong of a bond, No doubt this is quite rare. But she loved her own family even more, And to our Lisa, “Your Mother Did Care.” Family ties is where true love lies But one may take too much for granted. Looking at life selfishly Can get the family balance slanted. A mother’s love is everlasting, Joni and I will never part. She will always be --- “Right Here With Me, Living --- Within My Mind and Heart.” Mom

By now, you’ve probably heard that some news agencies have proclaimed the Cincinnati area the “Bed Bug Capital of America.” Is the problem really that bad locally? “I don’t think so,” said Assistant Clermont County Commissioner Health Julianne Nesbit. “The problem does exist in our area, but it isn’t what I would call a major problem.” She said bed bug reports have been pretty steady in recent years. “They have been reported in schools, businesses, hotels, motels, and homes. These bugs are hitchhikers, hopping rides on clothing and second hand furniture, and in other places occupied by people. Females can lay up to 12 eggs a day. They survive by drinking our blood.” In 2010, 64 residential bug complaints have been logged at the Clermont County General Health District. According to the Central Ohio Bed Bug Task Force, bed bugs are tiny parasites, brown in color, flat, and only 1⁄4 inch long. “The bugs hate light, so they feed on people at night, generally while they are sleeping,” said Nesbit. “Their bites itch, but do not spread disease. While they can live in any area, they are generally found in the bedroom, so check mattress seams, behind bed boards, in dresser drawers, and where carpeting joins the wall for signs of the bugs. Blood spots on sheets or mattresses, visible bugs, their skeletons, or eggs, and a sweet but musty smell are all signs that you could have a problem and should call in an exterminator immediately.” The Bed Bug Task Force

reports that using a household bug bomb can actually result in the bugs scattering and making the situation even worse! How can you prevent bed bugs from invading your home? Nesbit said that used mattresses should be avoided and second hand clothing should be placed in a sealed bag until they can be washed and dried in a hot setting for 15 to 20 minutes. “When staying at a hotel, make sure you check the room thoroughly, before bringing in

your luggage,” she said. “If you are a renter, notify your landlord immediately after spotting them; if they refuse to treat, you can file a complaint with the Health District.” For more information about bed bugs, visit the Clermont General Health County District Web site at www.ClermontHealthDistrict. org and click on “Bed Bugs” under the Hot Topics tab or visit the Central Ohio Bed Bug Task Force Web site at www.CentralOhioBedBugs.or g.

Ohio High School Athletic Association Names the Five W’s of Interscholastic Athletics The following was published in an 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 afterschool activity, not a yearround 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.” Ohio High School Athletic Association Mission Statement The Ohio High School Athletic Association’s mission is to regulate and administer interscholastic athletic competition in a fair and equitable manner while promoting the values of participation in interscholastic athletics as an integral part of a student’s educaexperience. The tional OHSAA represents its member schools by recognizing and promoting academics, the safety of participants, good citizenship, and lifelong values as the foundation of interscholastic athletics. Ohio High School Athletic Association Tournament Officials Selection Process The assigning for Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) sports tournaments through the district level is overseen by the OHSAA District Athletic boards, but many other people are involved including coaches, athletic directors, assigners, and OHSAA staff and commissioners. OHSAA administrators take over the selection of officials for the regional and state levels. Tournament officials are assigned based on rating and votes from those involved in their sport. All head coaches of varsity teams are required to rate officials on a one to five basis. Athletic directors, assigners, local associations, and athletic board members then vote for officials. These people are given a limited number of votes to vote for whomever they wish. Their votes are then added together to get an official’s total number of votes. The votes and rankings will be used in the next year’s tournament selection process. In order to officiate a tournament game, an official must have officiated a minimum number of regular-season games, participated in their local and state meetings, and not be a coach or assigner to work the regional or state level. The list of eligible officials is then sent out to the district athletic boards to assign for sectional or district games. Local resident Jerry Fick has been selected by the OHSAA to serve as the Statewide Director of Officiating Development in softball. Ohio High School Athletic Association The Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) has approved starting and ending dates for high school football for the 2013, 2014, and 2015 seasons. The 2013 and 2015 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.

From one hand to another...

Clermont Senior Services support driver, Pat Shoemake, gets to deliver noontime meals to customers with a smile, flowers or, as most recently, a pumpkin for several weeks during the fall and spring. She is able to do so thanks to the efforts of caring students, staff and volunteers at Loveland Primary and Elementary Schools. Granny’s Garden School encourages students to grow plants, tend gardens at the schools and sponsor several community service

projects. Roberta Paolo is founder and executive director of the program. One of Granny’s projects is the Bouquets on Wheels program where flowers picked from the gardens are gathered into bouquets and distributed to homebound seniors through the Mealson-Wheels program, sponsored by Clermont Senior Services. For their last week of the fall season, students decorated small pumpkins that were dropped off to Pat by Rebecca Oehler, events

assistant for Granny’s Garden School. “It is important for me to be involved with the bouqueton-wheels by delivering the flowers to Pat for her to deliver through Meals-onWheels,” Oehler said. “I know they bring smiles and (spread) cheer to the seniors.” Arletta, one of Pat’s customers, appreciates the grsture. “It makes me feel like it is spring. I certainly enjoy the students sending me flowers. Who wouldn’t?”

Delivering the flowers is rewarding for Pat. “It makes me feel good to see the seniors’ smiles, especially those who have tears in their eyes. I think it is nice for students that age to think about doing something for older people.” For information on programs sponsored by Clermont Senior Services, please call (513) 724-1255. Or for information on Granny’s Garden School, please call (513) 324-2873.

Holiday Gift Ideas

Pat delivers a pumpkin to one of her Meals-onWheels customers.

Looking for a thoughtful, creative and affordable gift for a family friend or loved one? Below is a list of gift ideas that are fun for the whole family to make. Beaded Wreath Ornaments Materials: 16-20 gauge craft wire, wire cutters, plastic translucent beads (wire must pass through holes easily) festive ribbon, fishing line Instructions: Cut wire to desired length and curl one end to keep beads from slipping off wire. Slide beads onto wire until desired circle is completed. Twist ends together and wrap loose wire between beads. Tie ribbon around wreath at the top. Attach fishing line for hanger. (Candy canes also can be made by this method.) Line box or gift bag with tissue paper and place ornaments inside. Cookie Cutter Candles Materials: Honeycomb wax sheets of various colors (found at craft stores), cookie cutters that can stand up, wicks, scissors Instructions: Use cookie cutter to cut out 10 wax shapes; divide into two stacks of five.

Stretch wick from bottom to top, overlapping the top of the candle by at least an inch. Place second stack over first stack and wick and firmly press together. (If the stacks do not seal together, take the layers apart, gently warm each one with a blow dryer, then stack again in two piles and place wick as instructed above.) Trim wick to ½ inch. Set the candle up and smooth bottom for standing. Suggestion: Fill small basket or wooden box with colorful shredded paper and arrange candles. Place basket/box in clear cellophane bag, gather together and tie with festive ribbon. Themed Gift Baskets Does a friend or loved one enjoy cooking, crafts, sports or gardening? Why not create a themed basket personalized especially for them?

FESTIVAL of LIGHTS

Now that winter is almost here, you probably see “Flu Shots Available” signs at many of your local pharmacies. Whether or not you decide to get a flu shot depends on your individual situation, of course, but you may benefit from the idea of immunization in other areas of your life — such as your investments. Specifically, you may want to help “immunize” your portfolio, as much as possible, against some of the volatility we’ve seen in the financial markets over the past couple of years. How can you do this? Here are a few suggestions: • Diversify, diversify, diversify. If you were to only own stocks, your portfolio would, at times, see some big gains — but at other times, you’d take some big hits. If you just owned bonds, you’d probably see fewer fluctuations than if you just owned stocks — but you’d almost certainly never get the gains you need to help achieve your goals. If you kept all your money in cash instruments, you’d protect your principal, but you’d eventually lose ground to inflation. In short, you can’t succeed as an investor by putting all your money in one type of asset. You need to spread your resources among stocks, bonds, and cash

investments. And even within each of these categories, you need to diversify. For example, try to own a mixture of growth stocks and income-producing stocks; short-term and long-term bonds; and a variety of cash instruments. While diversification, by itself, can’t guarantee profits or protect against loss, it can give you opportunities for potential success and help shield you from severe downturns that, at any given time, primarily affect just one asset class. • Know your risk tolerance. If you frequently find yourself surprised, or perhaps dismayed, at the fluctuations in your portfolio, you may be overestimating your risk tolerance. If you familiarize yourself with your investments before you buy them — and you should — then you probably shouldn’t be surprised at how they perform. So, if you own growth-oriented stocks, you need to accept the inevitable shortterm volatility in exchange for potential gains over the long term. But if you’re constantly worried over temporary setbacks, you may be taking on too much risk for your comfort level. If this happens, you may need to rebalance

your portfolio to better accommodate your true risk tolerance. • Maintain adequate cash reserves. Having sufficient cash in your portfolio can help you combat volatility in at least two ways. First, since cash essentially doesn’t fluctuate in price — though it may lose value over time, relative to inflation — its very presence can help stabilize your portfolio. And second, if you have enough cash in your investment mix, you may be less likely to dip into your long-term investments to pay for short-term needs, such as a major car repair, a new furnace and so on — and the less you disrupt your investments, the more progress you can make toward your goals. It’s not possible to fully shield your investments from volatility all the time. But by taking the steps described above, and by maintaining a long-term perspective, you can strengthen your portfolio’s resistance, and improve your own responses, to the effects of price fluctuations. And that’s a healthy way to invest. Article submitted by S. Christian Wilks, an Investment Representative Edward Jones, with Milford.

Events to be held at the Taft historic site

Bible Baptist Church, Mt. Orab Dr. Charles H. Smith

William Howard Taft National Historic Site will celebrate a Victorian Christmas with free events starting the day after Thanksgiving and into early January 2011. The house where William Howard Taft was born and grew up will be decorated to reflect the mid-Victorian period from Nov. 26 through Jan. 2, 2011. On Saturday Dec. 18, children are invited to stop at the

site from 11 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. During this time children can learn about the traditions of Christmas and make holiday crafts to take home. Father Christmas will also visit the site and children will receive a free photograph taken with him. The program is free and open to the public. The celebration will culminate on Jan. 2 when the Friends of the William Howard Taft Birthplace host the annual New Year’s Open

House. From 1-4 p.m., the public is invited to visit the house and enjoy holiday refreshments, just as the guests to the Taft house would have done in the 1850’s at the birthplace of the nation’s 27th President. William Howard Taft National Historic Site is located at 2038 Auburn Avenue and is open daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., but will be closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Days.
