“A Taste of Paradise” By Melissa Stewart, Editor

Most people spend their entire lives searching for paradise. A lucky few like Thomas Whitaker grow up there. “In those days Springfield Township was pretty ideal,” he explained. “Everybody knew everybody. It was very intimate. There was a lot of community spirit. It was fun to grow up there.” Whitaker, 70, who is now retried from his career in education, resides in Belgium. He lived in Finneytown for 20 years, on North Bend Road next to Ridgefield Drive, at a very important time when the farm community was undergoing major transformation. “Springfield Township really changed as I was growing up,” he said. “All agriculture slowly sold off and was made into housing developments.” Perhaps the changes in character and growth can best be seen through the change in the school system. “I really think that the whole community revolved around the school. My life did,” Whitaker said. “The community was really supportive.” Whitaker’s father had a very successful and lengthy career in the school system since its beginning. He started as principal in the mid-40s and ended his career in education as superintendent. To honor his father, the school board at that time, decided to name an elementary school for him – Whitaker Elementary. “He was very honored,” Whitaker recalled. “I think it was well deserved because he brought it from a two room school house to a K-12 school system. My family was very pleased.” Whitaker said one of the things he remembers most about life back then was feeling safe. “It was a really safe environment, everybody knew everybody and looked out for each other.” Charlene Mecklenburg, 65, who also grew up in Finneytown agrees. “When I was a kid, crime didn’t exist,” she said. “The way of life has changed – the whole world has changed.”

Her parents bought their home in Finneytown in ’56 when she was in fifth grade. She started Finneytown Grade School, which is now Whitaker Elementary. “At that time Brentwood Plaza was a horse farm,” she laughs. “ It was very much a naïve time, nothing like today. Little diversity. No crime, very ‘Sandra Dee.’” Mecklenburg agrees that much of life revolved around the school. Her parents were involved in a boosters club that raised funds for the football stadium. At the time the latest thing was that classrooms were open to the hallway. So when people would walk through the halls, you were actually interrupted in class, she said. She said everyone seemed to be involved in the community and doing their part to make it a great place to live. Even the township fire department was all-volunteer. “It was very classic America of the late 50s,” she said. Carol Huber Tanner, 68, who has lived in Springfield Township all of her life agrees. It was a simpler time, she said. “I loved the convenience, our yard, our privacy. You spent your time playing baseball, softball, or climbing trees and you didn’t even have to cross the street.” “You didn’t go anywhere other than to visit family once a year,” she said. “College Hill had all the shopping. There was no eating out. No shopping. Occasionally my dad would bring home Frisch’s’ fish, fries, and strawberry pie. I thought that was the greatest thing since sliced bread.” North Bend Road, where she lived, was a just a dirt road in ’26 when her parents bought the property where her home would be. Now it’s lined with homes and businesses. But, she said there are some things that never change. It’s still a good place for families. Springfield Township is still in a great location. “Other than the fact that my family is here, my favorite thing about this community is the convenience. You can get anywhere in Cincinnati in 20 minutes or less,” she said. Springfield Township is far enough away to be ones own personal paradise, but still close to connect to the rest of the world. Charlene Mecklenburg can’t argue that. There’s still a good school district, it’s still a good place to raise kids, she said. Although she now resides in Colerain Township, Springfield Township is where her heart is and always will be. She continues to attend a church in that area and volunteers. “The community continues to grow and prosper,” she said. “It is still what it always has been – a good place to raise a family. That’s why new people move here looking for what we had.”

This brilliant and powerful play examines how aggression and violence permeate youth culture.

As in his brilliant play New Kid, the playwright uses invented language -- in this case to stand in for harsh slang -- to create a poetic and theatrical experience. Performances will include

Explorers!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be on the

police force? Do you have a general interest in criminal justice? Maybe The Springfield Township Explorers program is what you’ve been looking for!

Named “Best Post in Ohio 2010”

The Explorers program is operated in conjunction with Learning for Life, a national program associated with the Boy Scouts of America. This program is open to area youth between 15 and 20 years of age who have an interest in law enforcement. The explorer will receive a minimum of 40 hours of training in basic Law Enforcement in an Explorer Academy, and then receive ongoing training throughout the year through in-serve training at monthly meetings, along with riding with patrol officers. Explorers also attend various field trips. Explorers have the opportunity to demonstrate their learned skills while competing against other Explorer posts in both local and national competitions. Police Explorers also assist the police department in various functions such as assisting with crowd control and parking at large events and festivals in the township. The Springfield Township Law Enforcement Explorer Post has won several best overall post awards in Tri-state competitions over the past several years, and was named the best post in Ohio in 2010. Many of our former explorers have gone on to careers in law enforcement both at the local and federal levels. For more information on our Explorer Program contact the Springfield Township Police department at 729-1300 or learn more at www.springfieldtwp.org/ExplorerPost.cfm. FALL&WINTER2011 - 2012

Resident Information

Weather!

Springfield Township has over 400 streets. Of those 400 streets, approximately 92 miles of the roads are owned and maintained by Springfield Township. An additional 40 miles is considered to be “county roads”, which run through Springfield Township but are actually are owned and serviced by Hamilton County. The Township typically declares a Snow Emergency when 3 inches of snow have accumulated on the pavement. A snow emergency is a situation where all vehicles need to be removed from the roadway in order to plow away the excessive amounts of snow. The Snow Emergency is declared through the use of the major radio and television stations in our community and in some cases, you may receive a phone recording from the Township’s Code Red System. When a Snow Emergency has been declared, you have two hours to remove your vehicle from the street. This aids us in our snow plowing efforts in several ways. It helps us do a better job and prevents your vehicle from being snowed in by the snow that rolls off the edge of the plow as it goes down your street. Vehicles that are not removed are subject to a possible citation by the Police Department. CODE RED Phone System: All Springfield Township residents and businesses should register for the Township’s Code Red Phone message service. You should automatically be registered unless you have an unlisted phone number, you have changed your phone number or address within the last year, or if you use a cellular phone as the primary home phone. To update, add or delete your phone number to Code Red, visit www.springfieldtwp.org. Click on the Code Red logo on the home page. (Lower left side. You will have to scroll down.) You may also add the new texting feature.
