Showmanship classes require dedication Preparation important for success at the county fair Sun staff

When 4-H participants come into the ring for a showmanship class during the Clermont County Fair, they make everything look easy. Their animal is spotless, the 4-H member looks professional and they effortlessly present their animal to the judge with a smile on their face. Behind the scenes, however, preparing for showmanship classes takes knowledge, practice and a lot of hard work. “You wash your horse, shave his nose and ears, make sure you ride and do a lot of shows,” Lindsey Smith, 16, with the Ranglers 4-H club, said. “Practice makes perfect.” Smith, who showed horses during the fair, said she takes care of her horses every day and works hard year-round to prepare for shows. Smith said it is definitely a lot of hard work, but knows it will pay off when she competes. “Your horse is going to be prepared, you will be prepared, it helps calm your nerves,” Smith said. Dusty Brandenburg, a member of the Rump Roast Riders club, shows cattle and explained that getting the animal ready for the show ring takes attention to detail, and sometimes little tricks of the trade can help. “Before the show wash them with soap and water and use hair spray and oil to make the hair stand up and shine,” Brandenburg said. Carley and Sydney Snider also show cattle, and said there are a lot of little

things that can be done to help the animal look its best. “You blow them dry and there are different things people will put in their hair,” Sydney Snider said. She said, just like with human hair, hair spray, oil or adhesive-type spray can be used to make the cow’s hair shine and stay in place. Carley Snider said the products also help fluff up the cows hair so he or she appears fuller, or bigger to the judge. Carley Snider said they also do other things to make sure the animal is prepared for the excitement of the fair and is better behaved. “You walk them and play the radio so they get used to the noise,” Carley Snider said. Preparation, as well as presentation mean everything for 4-H members competing in showmanship competitions because they are judged on how well they present the animal. In addition, 4-H members who win overall showman for their breed also have to prepare to show other breeds of animals as part of the Showman of Showmen competition. “What’s most challenging is you’re expected to work with seven species,” Maria Hill, a participant in the Showman of Showmen competition, said. “And for most exhibitors they are used to one specie.” Hill, who was overall showman for swine, said she worked with some of her friends to learn how to show different species in preparation for the Showman of Showmen competition that was held July 27. “We help each other out,”

she said. The Showman of Showmen competition requires the 4-H members to show horses, dairy goats, market goats, sheep, swine, dairy cattle and market cattle. Animals used in the Showman of Showmen competition belong to other members and are randomly assigned to competitors. The judge does not know which 4-H member won the showman title for the different species, and the goal for 4-H members is to show each specie well. “It’s a lot to learn in a day,” Allie Dusha, the overall equine showman, said about preparing for the Showman of Showmen competition. Dusha said she only had Showmanship, Page 5

ALB infestation a reminder for residents Mercy Clermont Following regulations and receives honors recognizing signs are important in national review BY KRISTIN BEDNARSKI Sun staff

Study focused on small but high-performing hospitals STAFF REPORT

Exit holes are one of several signs of an Asian longhorned beetle infestation. USDA officials are encouraging residents in the area to check their trees.

about the size of a dime and you could easily stick a pencil in there.” Baldauf said this is one of the easiest signs of Asian longhorned beetle infestation to recognize. He said another sign is chew holes from adult females preparing to lay their eggs. “This is also what we look for,” Baldauf said. “A lot of times it looks like normal cracking in the bark surface.” Baldauf said residents can look for adult beetles as well. He said Asian longhorned beetles are shiny black beetles with white speckles and antennae, and they can be anywhere from

an inch to an inch and a half long. “When they first emerge they have a tinge of blue,” Baldauf said. The month of August is the most likely time of year to see adult beetles. Baldauf encouraged residents to inspect their trees even if they do not live close to the infested area. Host trees for the Asian longhorned beetle include maples, birches, elms, poplars, ash trees and more. “If they care about the health of their trees or trees in the vicinity of where they live they should look at their trees,” Baldauf said.

Mercy Health-Clermont Hospital made the list of 100 Great Community Hospitals in a new independent study from Becker’s Hospital Review that was released in June. Becker’s Hospital Review is a national publication that provides news and analysis of hospitals and health care systems. “This is a tremendous accomplishment that reflects so many of our priorities in terms of delivering exceptional care, providing a great place to work and practice medicine and being engaged in our community,” Jeff Graham, market leader and president for the Mercy Health East market, said in a release from the hospital. To compile the list of 100 Great Community Hospitals, Becker’s Hospital Review’s editorial team analyzed information,

Officials with the United States Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service are encouraging residents to follow quarantine regulations, and to look at their trees after a satellite Asian longhorned beetle infestation was confirmed in Stonelick Township July 20. “One of the biggest things is not to move firewood,” Dr. Phillip Baldauf, Asian longhorned beetle eradication project manager for Ohio, said. Baldauf said the two satellite infestations they have found so far, one in Monroe Township last year and one in Stonelick Township last month, were both because of the movement of infested firewood. “If we can minimize that then we can just deal with the natural movement of the beetle,” Baldauf said. “Once people start assisting with the movement of the beetle it can end up anywhere.”

Rhonda Santos, public information officer for USDA-APHIS, said infested wood could have been moved before regulations were put in place last year, so it is likely that there could be other satellite areas of infestation in the area. “I think we are going to discover more infested trees until every host tree has been surveyed,” she said. Santos said they saw the first satellite infestation early on in Monroe Township and now also with Stonelick Township. “It’s possible that something may show on their trees now,” Santos said. “People need to remain diligent in looking at trees and reporting what they may find.” Baldauf said some of the most noticeable signs of the Asian longhorned beetle are exit holes, egg sites, or signs of chewing on the tree, and also the adult beetle. “When the larvae mature into adults they leave almost a perfect circular exit hole,” Baldauf said. “It is

recognition and rankings from industry sources that included iVantage Health Thomson Analytics, Reuters, HealthGrades and the American Nurses Credentialing Center. The study focused on high-performing hospitals with fewer than 550 patient beds and have minimal teaching programs. Hospitals that made the list were hospitals that demonstrated commitments to the health of their local population through clinical excellence, community involvement and various other efforts. The review from the editorial team also described Mercy Health-Clermont Hospital as having one of the region’s newest and largest intensive care units and one of the region’s first dedicated wound care centers.

If you love old movies, then ‘Dropped Names’ is for you Admit it. You’re kind of klutzy sometimes. And clumsy. That’s you, as pillows are tossed, furniture bumped, frames go askew, nerves are shattered and so is glassware. You’re Molly McMessy, as knees are skinned, bruises erupt, and moods drop, busted next to belongings on the sidewalk. Ooops. Butterfingers. But dropping things isn’t always bad; just ask author and actor Frank Langella. In his new book “Dropped Names,” he lets go of a few tales and things as he writes about the stars he knew, hated, and loved. It all started with one word from Marilyn Monroe. Frank Langella was a fifteen-year-old New Jersey boy on a bus trip to New York when a limousine happened to pull up in front of him while he stood in Times Square. The driver pushed Langella aside and when the limo door opened, a vision in white emerged. Marilyn Monroe smiled and said “Hi,” and Langella was instantly smitten. He never forgot that whispered word, even through his long career in Hollywood and on Broadway allowed him to meet all kinds of famous characters. Because he was friends with their daughter, for instance, Longella spent long summers at the various homes of Paul and Bunny Mellon, and their luncheons were filled with the rich and famous. Langella remembers how everyone was greatly entertained by

Noel Coward, and how Jackie Kennedy was rarely far away. While playing in the Poconos, Langella had the pleasure to work with Billie Burke, far from her Good Witch role but not a bit less than charming. He writes of seductions: Elsa Lanchester’s breezy explanation of her late husband, Charles Laughton’s swimming pool habits; clumsy attempts at amour from Anthony Perkins; a sweet love affair with Dinah Shore ; and an “unconsummated” man-crush on Raul Julia. He writes of Rita Hayworth’s illness, when nobody knew much about Alzheimer’s. He tells of a “stupid thing” he did to Jackie Kennedy. He writes of a downand-out Montgomery Clift, Richard Burton as a “crashing bore,” feuds with Lee Strasberg, bawdy jokes with Elizabeth Taylor, pranks with Robert Mitchum, and…. “Fame is… fleeting,” says author Frank Langella. So, unfortunately, is this book. “Dropped Names” is one of those Hollywood tell(almost)-alls that you never want to end. It’s like discovering a box of old movie magazines in Grandma’s attic, or like a movie-marathon on paper. It’s the best kind of fluff, if you’re a film buff.

Readers will be happy to know that there’s enough snark in this book to satisfy the most fierce gossip lovers, but Langella also writes poignantly Hollywood ’s tortured souls and those who seemed too fragile for fame. What’s nice is that he does this while calling only the barest amount of attention to himself. He tells the stories as he remembers them, without getting in the way. If you love old movies,

or if you miss the glamour and glitz of old Hollywood, then grab the popcorn and settle in. For a fan like you, “Dropped Names” is a book you won’t want to let go of. The Bookworm is Terri Schlichenmeyer. Terri has been reading since she was 3 years old and she never goes anywhere without a book. She lives on a hill in Wisconsin with two dogs and 12,000 books.

Revisiting the Barnes Museum Gardens in Philadelphia Marjorie and I recently took a trip to Philadelphia and visited the brand new headquarters of the Barnes Foundation, home of the world’s largest collection of post-impressionist paintings. The Barnes Foundation just completed a very controversial move from a seresidential date neighborhood in Lower Merion (a Philadelphia suburb) to a brand new facility on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, a stone’s throw from the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Rodin Museum and the Franklin Instutute. Albert Barnes created the original museum during the 1920’s to house his immense collection, and provide a headquarters for his art school. We first visited there in 2005. For lovers of Renoir, Cezanne, Matisse, Picasso, Van Gogh and other post-impressionists, this collection is the experience of a lifetime. It is no less so now in its new location, where tremendous care has been taken to recreate the original galleries. Barnes’ wife Laura planted an arboretum on the grounds of the original museum. By the time we visited it was dominated by huge specimen trees, now at least 90 years old. There were formal gardens walled with native stone, water features, and a tremendous collection of unusual perennials. The spacious grounds, quiet

STEVE BOEHME neighborhood and imposing stone museum building made a strong impression of peace and serenity. The new museum has a totally different character. While the galleries and collection have been recreated faithfully, the building and grounds are ultra-modern and surrounded by a busy city neighborhood. We were expecting a landscape that would evoke the original, but there is very little resemblance. Stark walls surround the gardens to keep the city out. Reflecting pools and water features are silent and mirror-smooth, not at all like the nature sanctuary surrounding the original Barnes. The Foundation selected a prestigious Philadelphia landscape design firm to design the museum grounds. Looking at their work made us wonder, as we often do, whether landscape architects know anything about taking care of plants. Everywhere plants are overcrowded, a half-dozen stuffed in where one would be enough. Tall upright shrubs were already blocking an art installation on a wall. High-maintenance taxus yews and “stupid grass” (little patches of

lawn in hard-to-maintain areas) promise to be a maintenance nightmare, and already look shabby. Most troubling is the politically correct use of “native plants,” totally out of place jumbled together inside the walled gardens, baking in the sun. Shade-loving perennials like astilbes and hostas struggle to survive, planted side by side with sun lovers. Where the original Barnes had stately boxwoods, the new one has gangly, messy plants that look like weeds. To be fair, this landscape is new and suffering from the recent drought. Over time, the plants will compete and some will come to dominate, others will be crowded out or die. This process happened over ninety years at the original Barnes arboretum, and it will likely happen here. But we left the museum wondering: isn’t a landscape designer supposed to visualize what his work will look like and pick the right plants for the space? E-mail us if you’re interested in touring the Barnes with us next year. We’ll likely visit it on our 2013 Philadelphia garden Tour.

State Representative Danny Bubp (R-West Union) was recently appointed by Speaker William G. Batchelder to serve on the Reasoned and Equitable Community and Local Alternatives to Incarceration of Minors (REOhio State CLAIM) Advisory Committee. RECLAIM Ohio partners with the juvenile court systems to develop a range of community-based options for juvenile offenders. The aim of this advisory committee is to divert youth from the Ohio Department of Youth Services’ institutions, and

encourage community programs that enable families to participate more fully in the treatment and rehabilitation process. “As Chairman of the State Advisory Committee for RECLAIM Ohio, I welcome Representative Danny Bubp to our comDanny Bubp’s mittee. knowledge and experience as an attorney, legislator and former juvenile judge will certainly be a valuable asset to our committee moving forward”, said Clermont County Commissioner Bob Proud. “I am honored to be appointed by the Speaker to the RECLAIM Ohio State

In addition to residents looking at their trees, officials with the Ohio State University Extension Office are also encouraging professionals in the industry to be aware of the signs of an Asian longhorned beetle infestation. Joe Boggs, assistant professor for the Ohio State University Extension, said they are working to train professionals in the industry how to recognize signs of infestation. “We want to make sure the people who make a living with trees are definitely aware,” Boggs said. Boggs said this is important because these professionals work outside around trees on a daily basis. He said they are also looking at putting together educational programs for master gardeners and members of the public as well.

Continued from page 1 about 24 hours after finding out she was the overall equine showman to prepare for the final competition. “This morning I went with a friend and tried to learn the basics,” Dusha said about showing the other species. “I also helped other showmen learn how to show horses.” Dusha said getting used to the techniques for showing the different species is challenging. She said sheep were the hardest of all the species to learn about. But Dusha said no matter how unfamiliar the animal is, once it is time to go into the show ring, the most important thing is to have confidence when it comes to handling the animals. “Making eye contact with the judge and being confident, that’s the one thing that is consistent,” Dusha said.

holding the bag. You can help protect against this risk by sticking with “investment-grade” bonds — those that receive high ratings from independent rating agencies such as Standard & Poor’s or Moody’s. • Liquidity risk — Some investments, like real estate, are harder to sell than others. Thus, real estate is considered more “illiquid” than many common investments. Make sure you understand what type of risk is associated with every investment you own. And try to avoid “overloading” your portfolio with too many investments with the same type of risks. Doing so will not result in a totally smooth journey through the investment world — but it may help eliminate some of the “bumps” along the way.

provide reliable income streams, but you also need to consider investments with growth potential to help work toward your long-term goals. • Interest-rate risk — Bonds and other fixed-income investments are subject to interest-rate risk. If you own a bond that pays 4 percent interest, and newly issued bonds pay 5 percent, it would be difficult to sell your bond for full price. So if you wanted to sell it prior to maturity, you might have to offer it at a discount to the original price. However, if you hold your bonds to maturity, you can expect to receive return of your principal provided the bond does not default. • Default risk — Bonds, along with some more complex investments, such as options, are subject to default risk. If a company issues a bond that you’ve bought and that company runs into severe financial difficulties, or even goes bankrupt, it may default on its bonds, leaving you

To diversify your risk factors, you first need to recognize them. Here are some of the most common types of investment risk: • Market risk — This is the type of risk that everyone thinks about — the risk that you could lose principal if the value of your investment drops and does not recover before you sell it. All investments are subject to market risk. You can help lessen this risk by owning a wide variety of investments from different industries and even different countries. • Inflation (purchasing power) risk — If you own a fixed-rate investment, such as a Certificate of Deposit (CD), that pays an interest rate below the current rate of inflation, you are incurring purchasing power risk. Fixed-income investments can help

All investments carry risk. But, as an investor, one of the biggest risks you face is that of not achieving your long-term goals, such as enjoying a comfortable retirement and remaining financially independent throughout your life. To help reach your objectives, you need to own a variety of investment vehicles — and each carries its own type of risk. If you spread your investment dollars among vehicles that carry different types of risk, you may increase your chances of owning some investments that do well, even if, at the same time, you own others that aren’t. As a result, you may be able to reduce the
