Relay for Life was an emotional event Participants came together to help combat cancer
Summer day camps still have openings Park district to hold two camps

The 15th annual Clermont County Relay for Life held at Veterans’ Memorial Park June 4-5 was an event marked by mixed emotions. Excitement lead up to the 24-hour relay, sadness consumed participants as they remembered those who lost their battle with cancer, fear ensued when a storm ripped through Veterans’ Memorial Park, and camraderie that left a lasting mark on participants. “It was an experience I haven’t had at a relay yet,” said Vickie Harris, co-event organizer and cancer survivor. It all began in the morning June 4, when members of 15 registered teams gathered to set up and decorate tents that would serve as their base during the relay. The colorful tents provided the them with the necessities to keep them cool on the hot and humid day. An area of the park was also set up to resemble a track. During the relay, one participant from each team is required to be on the track at all times, and team members generally take turns walking. Dr. Gordy Klatt came up with the concept of the Relay for Life in 1985 when he decided to walk and run around a track for 24 hours to raise money for the American Cancer Society. It has since become a world-wide movement with over 3.5 million people participating, in 5000 communities nationwide and in 19 other countries. This year marked the 15th annual relay in Clermont County, and 102 participants registered for the event. Teams included a Clermont
“That was a really nice way to get everyone more involved,” Harris said about the ceremony. “It was a good way to get us out of that and into a happier mood again.” But it wasn’t long after that the storm moved in. And a combination of lightening, thunder and wind put a damper on the event. Harris said several tents blew over and one even blew across the street. While some participants decided to leave, others endured the weather. They weren’t able to continue walking during the storm but they hung out under cover while the storm passed through. “They were great,” Harris said about the participants who stayed. “I think a lot of people hung out longer than
School is almost out for summer and children of all ages will soon be looking for fun activities to consume their long care-free days. Clermont County Park District has taken this into consideration and is hosting its first-ever summer day camp series right here at Sycamore and Chilo parks. “We’re kind of excited,” said Keith Robinson about the new camps. “We’re hoping to get kids interested in nature, away from the TV, away from the computer and doing something outside.” Robinson said the camps will have a nature-based theme. Children will be able to go hiking, walk through creeks, look for crawdads and salamanders, all while learning about local wildlife. The first camp will be June 13 to 17 at Sycamore Park and costs $65. The second camp will be June 27 to 30 at Chilo Park and costs $55, it is shorter because of fourth of July weekend. Both camps will run from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. each day. “We send the information home with them,” said Robinson. “But basically pack a lunch, bring hiking boots, a camera if they have one, be prepared to get wet and everything else we will provide.” Robinson said the camp at Sycamore Park is almost full, and the camp at Chilo Park has a limited number of spots left as well. Both camps are limited to 12 participants, who must be in grades two

Connections Young Professionals, employees at Best Buy, University of Cincinnati Clermont students and many more. “Our whole family has been involved in it,” said Tarynn Large, co-chair of the Tigers for a Cure team. “Cancer has touched all of our lives in one way or another.” Large’s son Troy Weathers organized the team, which was mostly made up of Bethel-Tate High School students. Another team, Remembering Ryan, was made up of family members who wanted to honor Ryan, a cancer victim, on the year he would have graduated high school. “I did (relay) mainly so my kids could experience it,” said Michelle Randolph of Bethel. “It was hard on them seeing
someone their age die.” Randolph said she wanted her children to see the other side of cancer, the survivors and the people who celebrate one day finding a cure for the disease. The ceremony began with a recognition of survivors. The group approached the front smiling, hugging each other and holding hands. Each of them came to the front and said their name and a number. The number represented the amount of time the survivor has been cancer free, and the numbers ranged from one month to 24 years. Then, survivors made the first lap around the track, with everyone cheering them on, celebrating some of the victories achieved in the long-time battle to cure cancer. “It just felt so good to look
out and see the people there when we had our opening ceremony,” Harris said. “It’s nice to know there are people out there that are cheering us on even when they don’t know you.” After that, the relay began. Music played and activities and games were available for all of the team members. There was a Zumba demonstration, line dancing and a Mr. Universe fashion competition. Later the mood turned more serious again with a luminaria ceremony to remember loved ones who lost their battle with cancer. Harris said the high school relay team organized the ceremony this year, and switched it up by having participants light the candles instead of just standing there with their thoughts.

Local teacher earns national honor BY KRISTIN BEDNARSKI Sun staff
Renee King is no longer a normal science teacher. She has received a prestigious award, her passion for teaching has been rejuvenated, and she has witnessed the power teachers actually have on those they educate. King, who used to teach gifted and talented at FelicityFranklin, was one of 85 teachers in the nation, and the only
teacher in Ohio, to receive the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science. “I was very excited and honored to be selected for this award,” King said. “It was definitely a surprise.” King said she thought there was no way in the world she would be selected for the award but went through the application process anyway because she was nominated. Anyone, including princi-
pals, teachers, parents, students or members of the general public may nominate a teacher they think exceptional in the math or science field. Amy Bain, gifted coordinator at the Clermont County Educational Service Center, where King taught a class, was responsible for nominating her for the award. “I think that it’s such an honor that someone nominates you and thinks you should try,” King said. “You want to do it because you respect that person, you kind of feel like you should at least try.” So King submitted an appli-

cation, which included her profile and resume, a video of her teaching a lesson, a written document of what the lesson meant to her, letters of recommendation and more. In the fall of 2010, King found out she was among the top three applicants for the state of Ohio for science, and in April she received the news that she was selected as a winner. Three weeks later, King was flown to Washington D.C., where she would join the other award winners – 85

The New Richmond Education Association has accepted a three-year pay freeze in a new contract with the New Richmond Exempted Village School District. The contract, which runs from July 1, 2011 until June 30, 2014, was ratified by both the teachers and the Board of Education. “The NREA agreed to some huge concessions for the betterment of our community and our tax payers in the district,” said superintendent of schools Adam Bird in announcing the agreement at Thursday board meeting. “It includes a three-
B R O A D S H E E T
year base salary freeze, a threeyear step salary freeze, a threeyear tuition reimbursement freeze.” The contract will allow for salary movement for teachers who receive advanced degrees. The teachers also agreed to pay an addition 2.5 percent toward their health care and agreed to 15 additional minutes per day with students. “It will now be 90 percent of health care covered by the Board of Education and 10 percent by the teachers,” said Bird, who negotiated the agreement in informal sessions with NREA president Nicole

Parker. Parker did not give details on the ratification by teachers but noted that it was not a close vote. “It passed by a nice majority,” said Parker. “It was not a tough sell. We were happy to work with Mr. Bird and the Board to come up with something that still gives us some security in our contract and some protection in some areas.” The teachers also agreed to go to 25 pay periods in the first year of the contract and 24 pay periods in year two and three of the contact which will save on administrative costs. The agreement by the teachers to give up 15 minutes of their 40-minute planning period allows the district to move start times up 15 minutes resulting in transportation savings due to buses not having idle time between high school and elementary routes. The board approved new start times of 8:45 a.m. for elementary buildings, the high school at 7:40 a.m. and the middle school at 7:45 a.m. for the 2011-12 school year. “I really want to commend our NREA and our teachers for making these concessions,” said Bird.
After consulting with legal representatives and learning that failure to comply with an expedited annexation request (if all statutory factors are met) could result in a court order requiring it, the Board of Clermont County Commissioners (BCC) today accepted the petition from the Village of Batavia to annex 108.5 acres of land from Batavia Township. The annexation property includes the University of CincinnatiClermont campus and the Southwest Ohio Development Center. All three county commissioners expressed frustration that they had to approve the annexation petition; by statute, this type of annexation can be questioned by
commissioners on procedures but not on merits. If the annexation transpires, employees at UC Clermont would be among those required to pay a one-percent earnings tax to the village; the village could collect $250,000 in general fund dollars each year through the annexation.”This is taxation without representation,” said Clermont Commissioner Archie Wilson. “Forcing this type of thing is not conducive to a good working relationship between the village and UC Clermont,” added Commission Vice President Bob Proud. “It’s okay to allow someone who wants to annex under this procedure to do so, but to drag others into the annexa-
tion, who don’t want to be, seems wrong,” said Commission President Ed Humphrey. “I’m disappointed with the filing,” said UC Clermont College Dean Dr. Gregory Sojka. “We will not be gaining any services. We have our own police department; we have our own maintenance staff. We get our water and sewer service from the county.” If the paperwork is reviewed and determined to be statutorily correct, and if Batavia Township does not oppose the annexation, UC Clermont and the Southwest Ohio Development Center could be located in the Village of Batavia as early as mid-July.
New Richmond teachers agree Clermont Commissioners say annexation request is problematic to pay freeze in new contract

Panera Bread’s Top Teacher winners announced STAFF REPORT Teacher Appreciation Week has come and gone, the votes are in and the winners of Panera Bread’s Top Teacher Contest have been announced. The preschool/elementary school winners were Mallory Colorado and her teacher Mrs. Jan Wellman of Primrose Elementary School. The middle school winners were Anthony Kastellie and his teacher Mr. Mike Goedde of St. Andrew Middle School in Milford. And the high school winners were Trey Melvin and his teacher Mr. Mike Unger of Stiver’s School for the Arts. Over 60 students in Ohio submitted videos or essays to paneratopteachers.com describing why one of their teachers deserved to be called a Panera Bread Top Teacher. “I think our entries, as far as

numbers go, where not exactly where we wanted them to be,” said Lisa Kennedy, marketing manager for the Eastgate Panera Bread. “But for our inaugural year, we were overwhelmed by the quality of the entries.” The winning entries included both video and essay submissions. Preschool winner Mallory Colorado’s mother helped her write an essay that highlighted her teacher’s patience and attention. Both the middle and high school winners chose to do a video describing their teachers. “The high school video was set to music, it featured some other students,” Kennedy said about the videos. “What the students had to say about their teacher and how he impacted their lives was really touching. The same with the middle school video.”
The videos and essays, which were posted on the website, were originally going to be narrowed down by public votes and then a panel of judges was going to select the winners, however, Kennedy said organizers completely agreed with the public and stuck with those entries. All of the winners received an Apple iPad 2. The winning teachers also won a $100 gift card to Panera Bread and the students won a bagel breakfast for their class. Panera Bread representatives presented the items to the teachers during their class. Kennedy said it was a touching moment, especially to watch the teachers’ reactions. “It’s cool to take a step back and see there are these teachers that really enjoy what they do and are passionate about teaching the students,”

Kennedy said. “We will definitely be doing this next year, hopefully the excitement and the word will spread.” In addition to the top teacher contest, Panera Bread also offered teachers a free side item during Teacher Appreciation Week, and selected 100 teachers to participate in the Teacher Tasting Event June 6.

students to gain an interest in the field. Although King said the issue isn’t occurring in schools in Clermont County, she believes it’s a growing problem across the nation. King, who is taking a couple years off full-time teaching to raise her children, including a 2-month-old baby, said the entire experience

made her realize how important teachers really are in the lives of those they educate. “I really can’t explain it any other way than to say that it has inspired me with a renewed passion for teaching and education,” King said about the trip. “Because you do see the impact it makes.”

Continued from page 1 math and science teachers from schools all over the country. “The first day they gave us a book of everybody’s picture and names and divided us into different groups,” King said. “That way we felt like we at least new everyone’s faces by the end of the first day.” The group spent May 16 21 participating in a variety of events including an awards ceremony, professional development sessions and lectures from scientists and mathematicians who spoke about the impact teaching had on them. In addition, the teachers spoke with Dr. Jill Biden and met President Barack Obama. “That was very exciting,” King said. “It’s such an honor to get to meet the president, definitely something I will be able to share with my students in the future.” Teachers also met with representatives from the White House. The group of teachers was able to discuss issues facing the industry. Harris said the entire group agreed that there should be a focus on equal opportunities for students. King also said a lot of schools aren’t focusing on science as much anymore, and teachers are even being told to not hit science as hard. She also said one of the highlights of the trip was hearing professional scientists, including scientists from NASA, talk about their careers. “One of the main things that left an impact on me was getting to meet scientists in the field that really made a difference,” King said. “And hearing them tell stories about how teachers made a difference in their lives.” Without science in school, King said, it would be hard for

A bond that helped them raise $14,381 for cancer. “I feel pride,” said Mae Scott, a participant and cancer survivor. “Because of the people who are interested in relaying for the same thing as me.”

There’s a new tomato variety custom-made for those of you who like sweet grape tomatoes or sun-dried tomatoes. It’s called Tomaccio, and it combines the qualities of candy-sweet grape tomatoes with the intense flavor of sundried tomatoes when dried. It’s been a few years since we’ve seen a totally new tomato plant introduction, and this one was worth waiting for. Based on a wild Peruvian variety, Tomaccio is the result of a 12-year breeding program in Israel, aimed at producing clusters of tiny tomatoes that dry on the stem. If you haven’t gotten hooked on sun-dried tomatoes, you’re already missing a treat. Mixed into salads for a hint of sweetness, drizzled on pizza, baked into bread and muffins, added to sauces or stuffing, sun-dried tomatoes are a gourmet cook’s secret weapon. Tomaccios provide all the above in a candy-like raisin size when dried. They make a great snack when sprinkled on toasted crusty bread with a little olive oil. Tomaccio vines can climb 12 to 14 feet in a season if you have a good pole or trellis for them to grow on. They start bearing fruit early in the season and continue until frost, bearing as much as 18 pounds
appeal to you, another choice is the sweet yellow pear tomato. We’ve carried these for several years and we’re hooked; customers snack on the little morsels right off the vines while shopping in our garden center. One more thing, while we’re talking about tomatoes: people still ask us for “Miracle-Gro” to feed tomatoes. We recommend something better: “Tomato-Tone” by Espoma. This is an old-fashioned meal-based powdered fertilizer from a real fertilizer mill, meant to be mixed with the
of fruit on a single plant. We have quart and gallon-size pots in our garden center that are already loaded with fruit. There are comparable grape tomatoes for fresh eating, such as “Sweet Million” and “Supersweet 100”, but nothing comparable for drying. Tomaccio has a very high sugar content and reaches its peak sweetness just as it starts to turn pink, so early harvesting is recommended. If Tomaccio has a flaw it’s a tendency to crack if not watered regularly. If you love tiny sweet tomatoes but dried tomatoes don’t
soil when you plant. Tomato Tone actually builds your garden soil while it feeds your plants. You get one chance to fertilize this way, mixing the fertilizer so the roots can find it as they grow. It’s a far better way to feed plants than pouring stuff on top later, and it’s also organic.

An Invisible Fence representative explains the new system to Teen Challenge Center residents and staff.
Local non-profit center receives gift for therapy dog Teen Challenge Center in Milford receives Invisible Fence rand system A little under a year ago, representatives at the Cincinnati Teen Challenge center adopted a puppy named Joshua. Now a more than 100-pound Great Pyrenees, this regal dog serves as a therapy pet for women receiving treatment at the center. To thank the Teen Challenge center for the difference its programs make in the lives of many young people, Invisible Fence of Cincinnati has donated an electronic containment system to the home for Joshua. On Friday, representatives from Invisible Fence of Cincinnati and the Teen Challenge center held an event at the home to celebrate the donation. Teen Challenge Cincinnati Men’s Ranch and Women’s
Maternity Home are Honor Accredited residential facilities within the Teen Challenge USA network, which is a network of religious-based homes for recovering teens with drug or alcohol addiction issues. A 501 (c) 3 organization, it is a 7- to 12-month faithbased, highly disciplined educational program focusing on men and women 18 to 35 years of age. Students go through intensive studies, receive their GED if necessary, participate in occupational therapy and receive life-equipping skills and job placement opportunities. Joshua serves as a therapy pet, teaching the women at the center about responsibility and caring for others. It just so happens that the stately dog also provides a sense of
security for the women. “We are honored to receive the Invisible Fence system. It’s inspiring to see a company support our cause purely because they believe in what we’re doing here,” said George Martin, Executive Director of Teen Challenge Cincinnati. “When George inquired about an Invisible Fence system, we came out to create a solution for Joshua. But our visit included so much more than that – we toured the facility and spoke with women undergoing treatment. We knew right away that this organization was special, and we wanted to give back,” said Kerry McManus, Owner of Invisible Fence of Cincinnati.

A Message From The Commissioner of the Ohio High School Athletic Association The following article was written by Daniel Ross, Ph.D., Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) Commissioner in the Fall 2010 OHSAA Magazine. “I vividly remember a conversation I had with a high school soccer coach from Northeast Ohio this past summer on the topic of non-school teams. He made a statement that left a big imrpession 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 inito 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 rpogram.”The proliferation of non-interscholastic teams often creates a real dilemma for student-athletes, coaches and parents. It is something that our staff here at the OHSAA discusses on a regular basis because, in some cases, non-school teams threaten what interscholastic sports are all about. “Do I consider all nonschool teams rogue? Of course not, and I don’t have any problems with youngsters wanting to improve their skills to the highest level possible, But far too many non-school teams just focus on playing an incredibale amount of games and winning above all else. “Many non-school coaches make unrealistic promises of a rosy future that often don’t pan out. They tell student-athletes and their parents that the only way they will get exposure to earn a college scholarship is to play for their ‘elite’ team. I not only find that very hard to
believe, but when I hear about the costs and fees associated with non-school teams I don’t believe it’s very hard to see who is really ‘profitiing’ from the exposure. “In additon, non-school teams are a part of the unfortunate trend today that is seeing young people specialize in just one sport. Just as a well-balanced diet is key to nutritutional health, playing several sports has proven to be more beneficial to a young person’s overall growth and development that just playing one sport, where the same motions day after day led to over-use of drtain muscles and injury. “It is my sincere desire the the famliies and communities in Ohio will see the benefits of school sports above any other kind to youth sports. The philosophy of eductional athletics, which the OHSAA places above all else, is what will produce tomorrow’s good citizens and community leaders, not playing eight games in a weekend or hopping around the country from one ‘big’ tournament to the next. “I invite the student-athlketes, teachers, coaches, administrators and families around Ohio to join me and the OHSAA in that belief. Togerther, we can make school sports what they are meant to be - preparation for the next level of life.”
Batavia High School Baseball Camp The Batavia High School Baseball Camp will be July 13-15 at the high school, 9 a.m. - 12:30 p. m. each day, for those 8-years of age through 2011 graduates. The camp director is Geoff Carter, head baseball coach of the Batavia High School Southern Buckeye Conference National Division champions and former Clermont Northeastern High School and Miami University - Hamilton baseball star. His camp assistants include former Clermont County baseball stars Tim Carter, Paul Voshell, Brent Anstaett, and Ryan Anstaett. The camp includes a day of hitting instruction, a day of fielding instruction, and a day of competition. The cost is $65 per camper. For more information, contact Carterg30@gmail.com or telephone (513) 646-7705.
OHSAA Explains Importance of High School Sports The following was published in an 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 their best as athletes. “In interscholastic athletics, we win if we develop winners. However, we lose if all we care about is winning.” OHSAA 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 accomplsih 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 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 educational experience.

As an investor, you may find that bonds can be a valuable part of your holdings. But there’s more than one way to own bonds, so you’ll
want to be familiar with the various investment vehicles available — because the more you know, the better the choices you’ll be able to
make. So, let’s look at three popular ways of owning bonds: • Individual bonds — When you buy an individual
bond, you will receive predictable interest payments. And when your bond matures, you’ll get the original principal back, unless the

issuer defaults, which is not common in cases of “investment grade” bonds. However, the value of your bond — the price you could get for it if you sold it on the open market before it matured — will fluctuate over time, primarily in response to interest rates. (When market rates go up, the value of your bond drops, and vice versa.) In general, you’ll pay at least $5,000 for an individual bond, though that amount may vary. Consequently, while this approach gives you more control, it can be more time consuming and require a larger investment in order to build a diverse fixed-income portfolio. • Bond funds — By investing in a bond-based mutual fund, which may own dozens of different types of bonds, you can efficiently increase your diversification, which is important, because diversification can help reduce credit risk (although it can’t guarantee a profit or protect against a loss). A bond fund does not pay you a fixed rate of return; instead, you receive dividends, which will fluctuate based on the underlying bonds’ interest rates and capital appreciation. In addition, bond funds don't have a maturity date when principal is repaid. Keep in mind that when you purchase bond funds, you could be subject to capital gains taxes in two different ways: if you sell your fund shares for a profit or if the fund manager sells an underlying bond for more than it’s worth. This increased capital gains liability is one reason that many people put bond
funds in a tax-deferred vehicle, such as an IRA or a 401(k). • Bond UITs — A unit investment trust (UIT), like a mutual fund, contains a variety of bonds, so you get the benefit of diversification. Unlike a mutual fund, however, a UIT is not actively managed and does not change its holdings. And since no manager is involved in making changes or trades, a UIT has low management fees. A UIT is typically established for 20 to 30 years, but, as an individual investor, you can sell your shares whenever you want, for whatever the market will bear. Although UITs can be some of the most cost-efficient, low-risk options in the fixed-income arena, they are not without risk. Specifically, since a UIT’s bonds provide fixed interest rates, there’s always the possibility that the bonds will lose purchasing power to inflation over time. When choosing how to own bonds, you’ll need to evaluate many factors — and we’ve only looked at some of them. You may want to consult with a financial advisor to determine which methods of bond ownership are appropriate for your needs. By doing your homework, and getting the help you need, you can maximize the advantages of adding bonds to your investment mix.
