Veteran writes book about Korean War Nightwine shared his stories on Memorial Day

Park levy back on the ballot Council will bring issue to voters again BY KRISTIN BEDNARSKI Sun staff


Ted Nightwine, a Korean War veteran, doesn’t like to talk about his experiences in the war. He has put the thoughts elsewhere and doesn’t enjoy revisiting them. But, the former Marine knows it is something he has to do, and even on a day where the memories hurt the worst, Nightwine took a seat in front of a small crowd, pulled out a thick book and read. “I didn’t want to do it,” Nightwine said about speaking at a Memorial Day church picnic at Veterans’ Memorial Park. “But you get talked into things.” Nightwine read excerpts of what he did, what he saw, and what he thought about during his days in Korea. He skimmed over his photos, letters to home and newspaper clippings. He revisited words he wrote over 60 years ago all compiled into a book he titled “The Price of War.” “I put a title on the book in the very beginning,” Nightwine said. “I wrote it on the page and then I started the story.” The book is like a school text book, it’s just as big and just as full of historical information. But it also served a different purpose for its author, who had a mind full of thoughts and memories that he had to do something with. Nightwine joined the Marine Corps in 1949. And in 1950, at 19 years old, he was thrown into battle in the Korean War. He participated in many combat missions and experienced everything from air bombing attacks to shrap-

nel wounds. He said back then, there were no breaks from service, no telephones and no bullet proof vests. He said he envies some soldiers today who have access to more advanced technology and protective gear. “It was scary,” Nightwine said about the experience. “There were times of sheer terror and times of heroism.” And somehow, the young Marine made it home in 1951, even when many of the men he was with were killed. He said he left a 19-year-old boy and came home an old man of 20, but he was still excited to be home, and when he arrived it was the only emotion that consumed him. “Oh my gosh it was just breathtaking,” Nightwine said about his arrival home. “We sailed under the Golden Gate

Bridge in the early morning hours, we pulled up to the pier and it was just loaded with people. My folks were there, people from school that I had known. It was extremely exciting.” It was what happened in the days that followed that really affected the serviceman. “When I first came home, I met a couple of people in the town I knew. They saw me in my uniform and asked where I’d been,” Nightwine said. “They said ‘Korea? Where is Korea?’” Nightwine thought it was terrible that people didn’t know what was going on in Korea and he said he wanted to be able to share his experience with his kids some day. So he decided he would write everything down, while it was still fresh in his memory.

Nightwine borrowed a friend’s cabin on Mt. Veeder in Napa, Calif., and wrote down everything he remembered about the war. His father had also saved newspaper clippings and his mother had saved the letters he wrote home where he had sketched maps and described battles. “I spent three months remembering day by day,” Nightwine said. “I wrote it all down long hand.” When Nightwine finished, he went home and put the book away. “I didn’t go over the details of the book with anyone,” Nightwine said. And Nightwine went on with his life. He married his wife, Carol, had children, got a degree in art history from the University of Utah, became a curator at the University of

Cincinnati and later worked at the Cincinnati Art Museum. Nightwine let his wife read the book, but it wasn’t until his children became old enough that the book, and it’s contents, really came back into the picture. “I told them they could not read it until they grew up,” Nightwine said. “There are some graphic things in it. I never wanted to go over it other than to straighten out the punctuation and language. It was something I didn’t want to dwell on at all.” But recently, Nightwine said the Korean War has been getting more attention. And in the last several years he finally decided to share the book. With the help of his oldest son, Nightwine had the book See Veteran, Page 4

The village of Bethel will place a park levy back on the ballot for the November election. The previous levy in the November 2010 election failed with 50.54 percent, or 330 voters, opposed to the levy and 323 people voting for the levy. The levy, which was listed on the ballot as Bethel Village Current Expenses, deals specifically with the maintenance of Burke Park and the Grant Memorial Community Building. “Last time it said the village of Bethel,” councilwoman Donna Gunn said. “And I think people got confused. This year we will be sure to have people stationed at the polls to encourage people to vote for it.” At their May 23 meeting, council members looked at a draft of the levy and discussed what mill they would ask for this year. Last year they asked for a 0.8 mill levy. Some council members suggested increasing the amount, while others wanted to keep it the same. “I don’t think tax payers are in the mood for an increase,” Gunn said during the meeting. Council members did not decide on a number for the levy but know they will reword the description of what the money will go toward. The finance committee will meet June 6 to further discuss the levy. “We are hoping with clearer language, people will know it’s exclusive,” Gunn said. “When voters get to the poll they need to know the money will be used solely for Burke Park and Grant Memorial Building.”


Guardsman to return to Iraq BY KRISTIN BEDNARSKI Sun staff

Sergeant Chris Schoumacher, of Union Township, has spent a good deal of time in Iraq, and soon the Army National Guard will return to the country for his second tour, only this time on a more positive note. “Last time I was there I was doing combat missions,” Schoumacher said. “This time

I’ll be doing convoy security, because they’re closing down Iraq now.” To honor the serviceman for his time spent in Iraq, before he leaves on his next tour, Clermont County commissioners recognized Schoumacher during their May 25 session. Sheriff Tim Rodenberg and Frank Morrow of the Clermont County Veterans’ Service Commission both pre-

sented Schoumacher with a challenge coin. Gertrud Whitaker on behalf of Congresswoman Jean Schmidt presented him with a congressional proclamation, and Tracy Braden of The Thank You Foundation also honored the soldier. “I have never really had something special done like that for me before,” Schoumacher said. “It was special.” Schoumacher said the military has changed his whole life. He joined when he was 18 years old, but decided

against going into service. However, several years later when he needed to make a career decision and have a stable occupation, he decided to serve. “It was the best thing I could have done for me and my family,” Schoumacher said. Schoumacher first served in Iraq in 2006 and 2007 as part of operation Iraqi Freedom. When he left he had a 6-yearold son, who he said he was excited to get back home to

New Richmond municipal building undergoes much-needed renovations Changes will help solve issues and save money BY KRISTIN BEDNARSKI Sun staff

The New Richmond Municipal Building is in the process of getting a makeover with renovations that will save money and make village council’s home more functional. The two-phase renovation made several improvements to the building. Phase one focused on structural improvements that will save the village money on electricity. “We replaced the boiler, it was extremely inefficient,” said Dave Kennedy, administrator. “We replaced all of the windows, which were in poor condition. We also put in a new front door that was better sealed.” The improvements were partially paid for by a $26,435 grant, the village paid the other half, and employees are already seeing the benefits of the investment. “It’s definitely more comfortable,” Kennedy said. “It heats up quicker, in one month alone we saved $400. With the windows, the savings will continue through the sum-

mer.” Phase two of the project has also begun. The utilities department was moved into another area of the building so that the police department could expand into the space that could be better used. “It is a great use of the space,” Kennedy said. “We were having to bring prisoners and somewhat violent people into our workspace. An issue we were trying to resolve.” The police department will expand into the utility department’s old office and will have several separate rooms. The added space will be used for a reception area, a larger evidence room, an office for an investigator and an interview room. The utilities department moved into an unused conference room across the hall. Police Chief Randy Harvey came up with the idea and has been doing some of the work himself. “It’s always been in the back of my mind,” said Chief Harvey. “It helps to satisfy some recent laws as to how business should be conduct-

ed.” Chief Harvey said security and privacy is a big part of what the village is accomplishing with the changes. Another benefit is that the village is using their own staff members to make the phase two changes. They have reused countertops and furniture. Kennedy said the only expenses were paint and carpeting. “We did it extremely cost effectively,” Kennedy said.

Kennedy also said they tried to stick to building’s original design when they were making changes. The building used to be used as a grade school, and Kennedy said they wanted to keep the same architectural look, but make it efficient so council could be productive there. “This is a good building for the village,” Kennedy said. “This is where we are staying, this is our home.”

The soldier did not receive special recognition when he returned last time, so commissioners made sure he left for his next mission on a good note. “Last time I just came home and I was home,” Shoumacher said. “It’s a huge morale booster for me, knowing I have all these people at home thinking about me when I am gone.” Shoumacher has left for base camp to train and will be deployed to Iraq in a couple of months as part of operation New Dawn. He said he expects to be home from the mission in January of 2012 and will be excited to see those who recognized him at the meeting when he returns. “I just want to thank Bob Proud again,” Shoumaker said. “He goes out of his way to make sure we’re taken care of and that means a ton to soldiers to have that, because not a lot of them do.”

published. Since then, Nightwine has not only shared the book with his children, but also with those lucky enough to know he served in the war, including members of the church who asked Nightwine to speak on Memorial Day. And although he isn’t happy when he’s asked to read from the book and revisit his time in Korea, he does it. Because the veteran decided years ago that he would help educate people about the war and he has stuck to that promise. And maybe, the book has helped Nightwine just as much as it has helped and will help others. “I was quite a mess when I came home, as most people are,” Nightwine said. “Over the years I can see how (the book) has really helped me to get a grip on my life and put it, all of the terrible things, behind me, and yet not lose it.”

Creature Feature Top 10 human medications that poison pets each year BY DR. DAN MEAKIN Pet poisonings from human medications happen and they can be serious. Below is a list of the top 10 human medications pets most frequently ingest. 1. NSAIDs (e.g., ibuprofen, naproxen)—Topping our list are the common household medications called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAIDs), which include common names such as ibuprofen (e.g., Advil and some types of Motrin) and naproxen (e.g., Aleve). Even one pill may develop serious stomach and intestinal ulcers as well as kidney failure. 2. Acetaminophen—When it comes to pain medications, acetaminophen (e.g., Tylenol) is popular.One regular strength tablet of acetaminophen may cause damage to a cat’s red blood cells, limiting their ability to carry oxygen. In dogs, acetaminophen leads to liver failure. 3. Antidepressants (e.g., Effexor, Cymbalta, Prozac, Lexapro)—While these and other antidepressant drugs are occasionally used in pets, overdoses can lead to serious neurological problems such as sedation, in coordination, tremors and seizures. Unfortunately, just one pill can cause serious poisoning. 4. ADD and ADHD medications (e.g., Concerta, Adderall, Ritalin)— Medications used to treat Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder contain potent stimulants such as amphetamines and methylphenidate. Even minimal ingestions of these medications by pets can cause life-threatening tremors, seizures, elevated body temperatures, and heart problems. 5. Benzodiazepines and sleep aids (e.g., Xanax, Read

The Clermont Sun’s


Klonopin, Ambien, Lunesta)—These medications are designed to reduce anxiety and help people sleep better. However, in pets, they may have the opposite effect. About half of dogs that ingest sleep aids become agitated instead of sedate. In addition, these drugs may cause severe lethargy, in coordination (including walking “drunk”), and slowed breathing in pets. In cats, some forms of benzodiazepines can cause liver failure when ingested. 6. Birth control (e.g., estrogen, estradiol, progesterone) Birth control pills come in

packages that dogs find irresistible. Large ingestions of estrogen can cause bone marrow suppression. 7. ACE Inhibitors (e.g., Zestril, Altace)— Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are commonly used to treat high blood pressure in people and, occasionally pets. Though overdoses can cause low blood pressure, dizziness, and weakness, this category of medication is typically safe. Pets ingesting small amounts of this medication can potentially be monitored at home, unless they have kidney failure or heart disease.

ticipate in clubs, camps, or in-school or after-school programs, 4-H members take part in hands-on, experiential learning that emphasizes “learning by doing.” Along the way, they learn leadership, citizenship and life skills that stay with them for a lifetime. Such characteristics are becoming more recognized as essential qualities in today’s workforce. A 2006 report, “Are They Really Ready to Work?” was a collaboration of The Conference Board, Corporate Voices for Working Families, the Partnership for 21st Century Skills and the Society for Human Resource Management. The 400 employers involved in the study identified the most important skills needed to

succeed in the workforce as: • Professionalism and a strong work ethic. • Oral and written communications. • Teamwork and collaboration. • Critical thinking and problem-solving. Those are exactly the kinds of skills that 4-H helps build, Archer said. And employers recognize this. Tom Wiseman, president and chief operating officer of Ohio Valley Bank in Gallipolis, Ohio, knows well the qualities of former 4-H members on his staff -- two of whom have become bank officers. He says 4-H has prepared them well for the workplace. “They’ve learned through 4-H and their advisors and

parents how to manage a project from start to finish,” Wiseman said. “That has served them well at the bank. When we give them a project, we don’t have to micromanage. They can take care of it and they have the confidence to do so.” The bank is a strong supporter of the 4-H program, having established a 4-H scholarship in 1986. Since then, 180 young people in the seven-county area served by the bank have received a $750 a year scholarship, renewable for four years, with a total of $349,000 awarded since the program began. The development of workforce preparation skills is strongly apparent among 4-H members who become camp counselors. In any given


Ferrari said. “Our thinking was that even though we might be able to see how beneficial the experience is for preparing teens for the workforce, if they (the teens) can’t see it, then we’re not actually doing it.” The coordinators also adopted a performance appraisal process, including both a teen self-assessment and supervisor feedback – just like employees and employers experience on the job. A total of 247 teens from 16 counties participated. The project, supported by the Erie and Orlys Sauder Fund of the Ohio 4-H Foundation, and a similar pilot in 2009, is helping Ohio 4-H develop a modified camp counselor training curriculum for use statewide.

year, about 2,500 Ohio teens act as 4-H camp counselors, said Theresa Ferrari, youth development specialist for OSU Extension’s 4-H program. Adults who work with them have always suspected that the teens develop workforce skills as a result of their counseling experience. Now they know it’s true. All 4-H camp counselors undergo 24 hours of training. In a 2010 pilot project, 4-H professionals made some adjustments in the counselor training program to directly address the idea that the teens were acquiring workforce preparation skills. “We asked the 4-H professionals conducting the training to talk specifically about how certain skills being taught were also workforce skills that employers value,”

Ohio 4-H isn’t billed as a workforce preparation program. But in many important ways, the youth development program helps Ohio’s children and teens build the skills they’ll need once they enter the working world. “The 4-H program is designed to develop life skills that people really do need in today’s workforce,” said Tom Archer, Ohio State University Extension’s assistant director in charge of 4-H Youth Development. “As a result, 4-H members become more independent workers, and they tend to care about others they work with.” In 2010, 317,286 young people in Ohio ages 5 through 19 were involved in 4-H activities in urban, suburban and rural communities statewide.

The Sunday Sun - June 5, 2011 - Page 5


BY STEVE BOEHME Is there anything more delicious than a plate of baked sweet potatoes with fresh cracked pepper, salt and melted butter? Yes. The same dish made with fresh-dug sweet potatoes from your own garden! This is a down-home treat that’s easy to grow successfully, and we see more gardeners trying it each year. The key to success in Ohio is an early start, since sweet potatoes need a long season of sunny days to mature. Sweet Potatoes are in the same plant family as morning glories. They need warm soil, so now is the time to prepare your garden for these delicious tubers. You’ll need to make a raised ridge in a place with full sun all day, working the soil and perhaps covering it with some black plastic for a week or two to warm the soil. Sweet potato plants are sold as bunches of rooted cuttings; stems with a few leaves and well-developed roots. You can keep them in a jar of water until you’re ready to plant. After planting, water them regularly to keep the soil moist while they develop. Control the weeds in your row until the plants spread out enough to shade the ground. Be very careful not to overfertilize sweet potatoes, or you’ll get beautiful lush plants with tiny potatoes. Using manure can cause fungus diseases. The best way is to use a low-nitrogen fertilizer like Espoma Garden Tone (4-6-6)

or other bone meal-based organic fertilizers. Sprinkle 4-5 pounds per 100 foot row on the ground before you till the row. Which sweet potatoes should you grow? Here’s a rundown of the most popular varieties: Georgia Jets are the sweetest of sweet potatoes. They grow extremely fast, producing #1 size potatoes in only 90 days, and extra-high yields. Jets have deep orange inside color with moist flesh and a marvelous flavor. The outside skin is so red it is almost purple. Vardaman is the next sweetest type we sell at GoodSeed Farm. A bush variety with the deepest, brightest inside color of all sweet potatoes, Vardaman has golden yellow outside skin that darkens after digging. Beauregard has been accepted by farmers everywhere. Chances are this is the sweet potato that is available at your local market. The outside color is red-orange and the inside color is orange. The Beauregard is a quick maturing potato and has a good shape. Centennial has carrot color inside with copper to orange outside skin, and produces "Baby Bakers" in about 90 days. Perhaps the most widely recognized sweet potato, the Centennial has been used in many bake-off contests. "Bunch" Porto Rico is a favorite of gardeners with limited space Also called "Bush" and "Vineless," the Porto Rico sweet potato has a copper-colored outside skin and light red flesh. With deli-

cious "old-fashioned" flavor, it is an excellent baking potato producing "Baby Bakers" in 100 days. White Yams are one of America's oldest varieties. Known also as Triumph, Southern Queen, Poplar Root, "Choker" and White Bunch, are white as cotton inside and out, and sweet as sugar. White yams are the driest sweet potato. Set sweet potato plants 12 to 18 inches apart, preferably on a wide, raised ridge about 8 inches high. A ridge not only dries better in the spring but also warms earlier. Covering the ridge with black plastic can speed early season growth by capturing and storing more of the sun’s heat in the soil under the plastic cover. The vines of spreading varieties need a great deal of space, so allow at least 3 to 4 feet between rows. After early cultivation (which is not necessary with black plastic), sweet potatoes need minimal care to keep down weeds. Once the vines spread to cover the ground, little weeding is required. Irrigate if an extended drought occurs. Do not water during the last 3 to 4 weeks before harvest to protect the developing roots. Sweet potatoes will be ruined by frost, so make sure you harvest them as soon as they are ready. If an early frost takes you by surprise, harvest them immediately before the decay from the dead vines travels into the potatoes and rots them. You should be able to find sweet potato plants at local

For big sweet potatoes in fall you need to plant as soon as danger of frost is past.

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.”

need to determine if an inherited stock adds to your overall portfolio diversification. Do you already have other, similar stocks in your portfolio? If so, you might want to sell the stock and use the money for a new investment opportunity. Conversely, if you don’t own anything similar to the inherited stock, and it can help your diversify, it may well be worth keeping. While diversification, by itself, cannot guarantee a profit or protect against loss, it can help reduce the effects of market volatility. • Fundamentals — It’s a good idea to closely scrutinize any stocks you inherited. Do they represent companies with strong management teams, good track records and competitive products or services? Or, as is sometimes the case, did your benefactor simply keep these stocks because he or she had some type of attachment to them? You’ll want to own quality stocks for the right reasons. • Risk tolerance — An inherited stock may be either too aggressive or too conservative for your preferences. If the stock doesn’t fit within your risk tolerance, sell it and buy an investment that does. • Taxes — When you inherit stocks, they are generally valued at their market value on the day your benefactor died, not the date of the original purchase. For example, if you inherit stock that your father bought for $20 a share, and it’s worth $75 a share on the day


he dies, your “cost basis” would be $75 a share. If you sell the stock right away, you’ll likely owe little or no income taxes. If the price of the inherited stock goes up before you sell it, you’ll pay capital gains tax on the difference between $75 and the sale price, at a maximum rate of 15 percent (at least for 2011 and 2012), no matter how long you’ve held the stock. This is advantageous for you; typically, if you sell an appreciated stock that you’ve held less than a year, you’d have to pay capital gains taxes at your normal income tax rate. If you inherit stocks as part of a traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA), you’ll probably have to pay taxes on withdrawals at your income tax rate. However, you may be able to spread withdrawals over your lifetime, which could result in more tax-deferred growth and a greater income stream. And if you inherit a Roth IRA, you won’t have to pay income taxes on any withdrawals, provided the Roth IRA account has been open for at least five years. If you need help in determining what to do with inherited stocks, consult with your financial advisor and tax professional. After all, you are acquiring an important asset — and you want to make this asset work for you.
