Northside Business Association Neighborhood Gears Up For Annual 4th of July Parade and Rock & Roll Carnival Once again the Northside Business Association (NBA) sponsors the Northside Rock & Roll Carnival for four days of live music and family fun for everyone. This is our annual community event that celebrates Northside, our diversity, and the many talented business owners and residents that make up our great little community!

Each year dozens, if not hundreds, of local residents, business owners, employees, and friends of Northside come together as volunteers to put on this spectacular Northside event. NBA would like to thank all once again for their dedicated community support that keeps this event growing stronger and more successful year after year. The list of sponsors and volunteers are too lengthy to list out here, but all of you know who you are and we thank each and every one of you!

Our annual 4th of July Parade, sponsored by Northside Community Council, is one of the oldest, diverse, creative, and most enthusiastic you will ever find anywhere. We thank those folks who take the time to present their best presentations, whatever they may be. For all of you that attended, we thank you too. Without your support we couldn’t be this successful year after year. Your patronage supports local

business and we hope you enjoyed the warm and open environment that Northsiders have worked so hard to develop and nurture. Please join us again next year and tell a friend or better yet, bring a few friends down with you. We are always eager to welcome and embrace new friends in our growing community.

DEVELOPMENT

News From Apple Street Co-Op Seeks Non- and Low-Debt Financing For Fall At Apple Street Market’s annual meeting in April we reported on the challenges we’ve faced recently: Increases in construction expense, and more importantly, low sales projections for the site the community has envisioned as the future home for Apple Street Market. Since that meeting we have taken three steps to overcome these challenges. We engaged consultants specializing in conducting feasibility assessments and business strategies for worker-owned businesses and retail grocery business operations to develop pro forma of the sites in consideration to ascertain the capital requirements for each site, a conservative projection for a break-even date, sustainable debt load and/or rent expense, and plans for achieving sufficient inventory turns. Acting on the market studies we commissioned in February on several additional potential sites, we continued to investigate the availability of the two most promising alternate sites within Northside while also working to secure additional grants and non-debt financing to close our funding gap to improve the feasibility of our original, preferred site, the former Save-A-Lot. All the while, several teams of tireless volunteers have been working on community fundraising and outreach efforts. Through their efforts, the Apple Street Market project has received a great deal of support from Northside businesses in organizing our bingo fundraiser at Urban Artifact on Saturday, Aug. 20. Many volunteer hours have gone into Apple Street Market’s collaboration with the Northside Farmer’s Market’s THE NORTHSIDER MONTHLY

and CAIN’s efforts to make healthy foods more easily available in our neighborhood by providing dry goods that are not grown locally and make the Farmer’s Market more of a onestop-shop. July will mark our third month of selling affordable dry goods to complement the fresh whole foods provided by local producers, and our selection has expanded to include dry beans, nuts, grains, and cooking oil. It is a small step towards increasing food access in Northside, but one that could not have been accomplished without the tireless efforts of many Apple Street Market owners. While there is a substantial amount of work yet to do fleshing out plans that ensure a successful Apple Street Market at the corner of Knowlton and Apple, sufficient analysis has been done to determine that, yes, with the right kind of financing, a full service grocery can succeed at the site of the former Save-ALot. Our goal now is to obtain the right combination of low-debt and non-debt financing this fall so we may move on from feasibility and planning and towards breaking ground on a storefront. We have made significant headway in on this front as well and will be reporting on our progress at an open meeting at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday the 26, hosted by Happen Inc. at their main site on the corner of Chase and Hamilton.

EDUCATION

Summer Programs Highlight Wordplay’s Contributions to Community Youth Sample ‘Wild Things,’ Take Lessons on the Road Nature walks just steps from the neighborhood’s best-traveled thoroughfares. Writing sessions in an historic private downtown library. Creating stories to accompany a fall photo exhibition. The sights and sounds of summer at WordPlay Cincy are rich with opportunities for learning. The Northside non-profit that builds diverse communities through innovations in education year-round expanded summer programming to eight weeks this year. Programs are running now through July 28. “Our success last year, in particular, convinced us that our summer programs meet an important need for students and families,” said WordPlay Executive Director Libby Hunter. “This year,” she added, “we’ve really raised the bar in terms of our offerings.” She pointed to the volunteer efforts of neighbor and naturalist Greg Torres, who leads WordPlay’s Summer Scholars and dedicated volunteer tutors on weekly nature walks as they discover that even in the heart of the city, the natural world is never far away. After a recent session, Summer Scholars took time to hear and read the Maurice Sendak classic, “Where the Wild Things Are” from the cool of WordPlay’s headquarters on the corner of Hamilton Avenue and Blue Rock. “Every day, we have dedicated time for everyone at WordPlay to ‘drop everything and read,’” Hunter said. She noted that not only does regular reading lead to gains in learning in and out of the classroom, it also creates powerful habits and sense of 4

calm amid the stresses of daily life. Students in first through eighth grades can still participate in WordPlay activities, even if they didn’t sign up for the Summer Scholar program, Hunter said. WordPlay Saturdays, which run through July 22, are open to all on a drop-in basis. From noon until 2 p.m., students take part in a Young Writers Circle, which includes a discussion on a specific theme each week. From 2-4 p.m., students can get help with summer homework or just relax in a tub and read a book or two - or even three! High-school WordPlay students are already engaged in powerful community projects that will lead to publications and exhibitions this fall. With 22 students enrolled from 11 different high schools, the summer WordUP is a model of creativity in action. Cincinnati poet laureate, who also happens to be WordPlay’s Writer in Residence, Pauletta Hansel, is leading the group as they write stories, poems and real-life experiences. She provides expert guidance and support for participants whose work will be eligible to be featured in WordPlay’s first teen anthology this fall as well as competitive entries in the Books By The Banks’ second annual writing contest. An added bonus? Each session takes place at the Mercantile Library downtown, an historic landmark rich with literary history. “We are proud to give our teens this amazing opportunity to write in such a beautiful location, to learn from such a generous and accomplished teacher and community leader and, at the same time, to create in such a supportive environment,” Hunter said. Teens have yet another opportunity to create work for public display during WordPlay’s collaboration with

Then they will take those poems public during readings and incorporate them into the fall’s regional FotoFocus exhibition.

creativity and, best of all, ways to be a part of the WordPlay action.

“This is an exciting opportunity to grow our community and expand our reach,” Hunter explained. “Working with trusted partners at Chase Public and Cincinnati Museum Center allows us to expose our students to a wide range of creative professionals. This is a very real way to expand their horizons in ways that will last a lifetime.”

This month, WordPlay celebrates our online donors—in addition to the friends and foundations and countless other supporters who make all we do possible. Thank you!

HAPPEN HAPPENINGS

Happen’s Summer Programs Break Attendance Records Happen, Inc. kicked off its summer programs with camps, special events, cookouts and of course… the community. For the third year in a row YouthWork’s teens have been volunteering with Happen to complete different projects throughout Northside. So far this summer teens have begun the annual cleanup of Hamilton Avenue sidewalks, harvested greens and vegetables from Happen’s vegetable garden for CAIN, and even shoveled and spread 24 yards of mulch for Hoffner Park. Happen invites the entire community to join us to celebrate all of the teen volunteer efforts every Thursday night at Fergus Park for the next seven weeks this summer. Happen art tents and projects start at 5:00pm with free food to the community served at 5:30pm. Over 120 people participated in our first cookout and we look forward to even more community members joining us throughout the summer to celebrate the teen volunteers. Stop in to see Happen’s flower garden on Chase Avenue on Sunday evenings at 5:30pm as Happen’s teens serve the community by hosting a free grill out. Happen is also providing activities for camps and special events throughout Greater Cincinnati this summer. From Westwood to Mason and OTR’s Washington Park, Happen is providing programs to the community this summer. You can visit Happen at Washington Park every Tuesday at 10:00am for a free Happen session. Happen’s Toylab is also at Washington Park twice a month on Saturdays from 11:00am-1:00pm with free toy building to the first 20 participants. And look for the Build-A- Block THE NORTHSIDER MONTHLY

project during every City Flea visit at Washington Park. All of this means Happen is breaking summer participation records. This summer Happen’s Toy Lab alone will serve more people in the two summer months than we would normally serve in a full year, said Happen Director, Tommy Rueff. Happen continues to serve more and more children and families in the Greater Cincinnati and was recently named as one of the “10 Fun Field Trips around Cincinnati” by Cincinnati Parent Magazine. We are proud that more and more families are visiting Happen for the first time and that means they have a chance to check out everything our Northside neighborhood has to offer for the first time too, said Rueff. This summer Happen is providing activities to 27 different summer camps with many of the camps repeating their Happen visits throughout the summer. All of this would not be possible without the dedicated Happen staff, volunteers and supporters. Happen’s public programs and special events are always free to the community as we provide all of the supplies and fun for families. If you would like to get involved, volunteer, donate, be a sponsor or if you have any questions please contact Happen Director, Tommy Rueff at 513-751-2345.

Peter Piper Picked a Patch of Pickle Drinks

Pickleback The classic pickle drink. The “pickleback” name was coined in 2006 by Reggie Cunningham in the United States hipster capital: Brooklyn, NY. At one time this drink was more popular than its butt-rock phoneme, Nickleback. The pickleback consists of a shot of whiskey and a shot of pickle brine to follow it up. Credited with curing the common cold and preventing hangovers according to Reggie himself.

“this is fine.” don’t call it complacent just mirror forgiveness rest no fingers on the trigger so threats are no shadows. do not fire until you understand they have eyes.

Fireworks, summer sun, fresh cut grass, the scent of barbecue wafting through the air, and, of course, everyone’s favorite burger and Chicagostyle hot dog topper, pickles. Whether you like them in slices, spears, whole flavored, hot & spicy, bread & butter, or classic dill, chances are by the middle of July you will have a bevy of empty pickle jars filled part of the way with leftover pickle juice. Rather than dumping that salty, acidic liquid down the drain, save it up and have yourself a pickle-juice cocktail or two at your next summer bash. It might not be everyone’s favorite drink, but just like your drunk uncle at Christmas, it will definitely get your family talking.

yourself to the level of the proletariat when it comes to your cocktails. After all, if it wasn’t for the martini, how would the lowly serfs know they are in the presence of a member of the bourgeoisie? The next martini you mix, shake it up a bit with the addition of a half ounce of pickle juice for a truly briny treat. A couple of these salty dogs and you may just find yourself dancing right out of those pantaloons. A key consideration for any of these pickled-up drinks is where that brine comes from. Keep it fresh and keep it local. Scope your local farmers market (Wednesdays in Northside) for several different local options. Specifically, The Pickled Pig and Fab Ferments are making some truly delectable pickles of all types.

AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD

Introducing The Northside Summer Market

As Northside is situated comfortably along the 690 mile route between Gadsden, Alabama and Addison, Michigan, it was a perfect fit. Route 127 is a long one, but rarely does it cross through major cities. This was a great opportunity for the community to join in something much bigger than itself. We officially became part of “The Worldʼs Longest Yard Sale.” Since Northside first joined in — approximately 15 years ago — itʼs been a major community-building activity. A map is created; residents register their houses; a central location is picked; and like clockwork, the city joins us for a day of shopping. “I’ll take that lamp ...and those chairs! Stuffed animals?? ...Yes please.” This is pretty much how it goes and my guess is that it was exciting, yet fairly slow-moving in the beginning. But as it grew, it became a burden to the original organizers and needed to change hands. In 2014, our Northside-based arts organization PAR-Projects “adopted” the event under one condition: If it were to continue being produced, it had to eventually incorporate the arts. The reason for this change was that if it were a burden to its former, fully-fueled organizers, a long term commitment THE NORTHSIDER MONTHLY

had to make sense for our small organization. Sounds easy enough right? Well, the first year (2014) we found ourselves with no central location until the final hour and we really had no idea how to handle this monster. I apologize for that. There was a ton of coordination needed and no knowledge of the “how,” aside from a cheat-sheet we were given early on. Still, most would agree that 2015 was a great recovery. Artists & artisans were added. The closing of Hoffner Street created a festival vibe and over 60 vendors joined the party. Northsideʼs Community Wide Yard Sale officially had an Art Market, but better branding was needed for growth. Today, in the spirit of progress, weʼd like to introduce the “Northside Summer Market” -- a name that embraces the yard sale + the arts. For 2016, weʼre adding a beer garden. Weʼre making it free for residents to join the map. And hopefully, with the help of local sponsors, weʼll hire FREE pedicabs to drive residents & visitors around the neighborhood. Visit our Northside Farmers Market booth or www. NorthsideSummerMarket.com more ...and please plan to join us on Hoffner Street -- Saturday August 6th.

MUSIC

Adjust Your Eyes 2016 Music & Art Festival Lineup

Grasshopper Juice Records’ Adjust Your Eyes Music & Art Festival announces its 2016 lineup, coming to Northside on Friday, July 29, through Sunday, July 31. Venues in Northside hosting AYE showcases include: The Comet, Northside Tavern, Urban Artifact, Northside Yacht Club, Chameleon, The Listing Loon, Junker’s Tavern, and CincinNative. Since 2006, AYE has brought local music and art communities together for collaboration amongst various styles and genres. The lineup ranges from groups like alternative hiphop artist Juan Cosby to folk singer, Wonky Tonk. Another group performing at AYE is TIGER SEX, an energetic punk group, 8

originally from L.A. They have a flare for drawing a diverse crowd to their shows, because of their intent to travel and meet new people. “The Cincy music scene is kind of broken up in segments, with different genres of music, so it’s cool to see everyone come together instead of being picky or choosy about who they play with,” said Kelly Chelston of TIGER SEX. Chelston adds, “I think (AYE) is great and it will open up more doors for artists in the future. It seems like a lot of things of this nature happen in OTR, so it will be really cool to play in Northside. We have high expectations.” Away from the stage, participants can witness an assortment of captivating visuals, such as light installations, and active painters/illustrators.

Scott Barns, a resident of Mt. Washington, has attended every AYE festival over the last ten years because it is one way he discovers local talent. “Northside will be a good setting this year, for the different venues it offers to the unique styles of music it involves. It’s also a great community to nurture the energy of AYE. It’s always great to meet new, interesting people, and see talented acts, whether you’ve heard of them or not,” said Barns. This is a chance to celebrate inclusivity for creative minds in Cincinnati—but also an opportunity to give back— AYE has raised over $5k for local organizations in need. The proceeds from this year’s festival will benefit Apple Street Market, Northside’s up and coming food cooperative. Nick Mitchell, an AYE event organizer, founder of Grasshopper Juice Records, and member of hiphop trio, Counterfeit

Money Machine, is elated to bring this festival into his own backyard. “Being a Northsider myself, I knew my long term goal would be to move the festival to this neighborhood and support my community. Due to the opening costs, Apple Street Market needs a lot of help right now. As a co-op, the store will match the unique personality of the neighborhood, while providing a vital necessity to the people who live here,” said Nick Mitchell. Mitchell adds, “The community has been rallying around Apple Street Market for a few years now, and it’s going to take a few more years of continued support to cut the blue ribbon.” To help a local label give back to the community through music and art, visit adjustyoureyes.com for festival announcements.

THE ARTS

Where Fair Trade meets the Arts Wandering among the fresh produce, live music and homemade products of the Northside Farmers Market, a new assortment of colorful accessories may draw patrons in, but if that doesn’t attract them immediately – the vendors will.

Northside at the Market and The Natural Girl on Hamilton Avenue. The impact of her presence reaches all the way to Central America, where a village of Mayan Indians makes and exports the jewelry, head wraps, purses and hats that she sells under fair trade protocol.

“Everyone looks better with a bit of color around their face,” says Owner of Inspirit Arts Sylvia NebSa Harmon, as she jubilantly entices a passing customer to try on one of her signature head wraps.

Inspirit’s mission is to fight against poverty in the villages where hand-crafted accessories are made. The Inspirit Vendor Academy helps extend this goodwill by facilitating turn-key vendor booths or equipping students with the right skills to start their own business without as much risk, NebSa said.

Harmon, or NebSa as she is popularly known, founded the humanitarian collective in Kenya in 1982. Since then NebSa has used Inspirit to combat economic inequality by stimulating fair trade operations, creating educational workshops, and eventually turning Inspirit Arts into a vendor academy. Inspirit has trailed NebSa around the world, from Africa to France and her home-state of Michigan to right here in

THE NORTHSIDER MONTHLY

The Inspirit booth and its vendors are set up and taught to create an experience rather than a stagnant presence. Instead of waiting for clients to approach the booth NebSa engages them, forming a “market culture” rather than a “store culture,” as she explained. NebSa’s high energy and approachable personality excite clients and cultivate

a genuine interaction. As she explains to passersby that her products are all handmade, many stop to at least look at what Inspirit has to offer. When she goes into detail about the functionality and nonslip feature of the head wraps, most are willing to try them on. “We satisfy a number of different niche markets,” NebSa says of her clientele. She vends at countless festivals and street fairs during the summer season, most recently at the Northern Kentucky Pride Festival, where Inspirit’s vibrant accessories matched the symbolic rainbow colors of the LGBT community. “I call it the great unifier,” NebSa said. “There’s so many things that divide people but this is for every single person.”

Dean McHone, 25 of Clifton, said that the Inspirit booth complements the sense of community at Northside Farmers Market. “You can tell that they like what they do, they just wrapped us right up,” he said as he and his companion sifted through the various head wraps. Inspirit’s vibrant showcase can be found at Northside Farmers Market every third Wednesday of the month, one of many places where NebSa continues to share her more than 20year journey with others.

SUSTAINABILITY

Constructing Northside A Couple’s Bid to Build Community and a Green Energy Grid They met in Argentina. Sonja--a native Cincinnatian--had traveled there as a Volunteer Coordinator on a sustainable farm. Ezequiel is from Buenos Aires, and at the time, he had taken a break from his agricultural studies at university. He happened to be spending some volunteer time on the same farm. What was supposed to be a quick trip south for Sonja became a bit of a sojourn. But after a few months, Sonja had to return to the U.S. to begin her Master’s program in Urban Education at Boston College. It was Ezequiel’s turn to travel. He left Argentina, and together, they moved north. After Sonja graduated from Boston College, the two moved to Cincinnati, and in the spring of 2015, Sonja and Ezequiel bought their first home in Northside. “The concept of building a solar grid was already in my head,” says Ezequiel. Sonja adds that when we bought this place, it made sense to create a new car port for the driveway, and to use that structure for the solar installation. “In our heads, we thought we would install on the roof. But this roof doesn’t accommodate such a build.” The house has a gambrel style roof, which has a shallower slope above a steeper one. The roof is also topped with natural slate, and neither Sonja nor Ezequiel were interested in disturbing that. The two settled on the car port, which would give them a place for their car, a storage shed for their yard and gardening equipment, and the structure needed for the solar panels.

How to pay for such a project, though, was its own puzzle. Ezequiel is studying Environmental Engineering at UC, and Sonja is a teacher. So the two live modestly. Such modesty has done nothing to slow their ambition to live self sufficiently. If anything, it seems to operate as another entry point for creativity. “We set up a ‘Go Fund Me’ page with a couple photos and some rough drawings of their build plan. Not all the project funds were raised on Go Fund Me. The two have put in their own private capital, as well as their person sweat equity. Additionally, they recruited a friend from the West Coast. NAME is a teacher and carpenter, and he signed onto the project immediately. During Spring Break, he flew east, and the group used that time for friends to come together to erect the frame of the structure. In true Northsider fashion, this is at its heart a community driven project. And that’s the real gem of their thinking and process. Sonja and Ezequiel are not doing this for the money they’re going to save on their electric bills. Explains Sonja, “In Ezequiel’s studies he found that the number 1 thing that encourages people to go Solar isn’t subsidies or grants, it’s if your neighbors are doing it. That increases the likelihood that neighbors will go Solar by 50%. We want to start the movement in our neighborhood!” So, Northsiders… Who’s with them?! By Autumn, this project will come to fruition, and I’m sure you can tap the knowledge base of this dynamic couple to start your own green energy project.

AT THE MARKET

2nd Annual Taste-A-Thon At last year’s event, children tasted foods includig farm fresh carrots, apples, tomatoes, ground cherries, celery, sorrel, breads, granola, and dill pickles. In this fun environment, children may taste and enjoy new foods. They will also get the opportunity to meet farmers and learn about how different foods are grown throughout our region.

Sisters receive their Market Bucks after trying new foods at last year’s Taste-A-Thon.

Northside Farmers Market Hosts Children’s Events this Summer Even the pickiest of eaters may leave the Northside Farmers Market’s Second Annual Taste-A-Thon having crunched on kohlrabi or sampled sorrel. Last year, the farmers’ market hosted its first Taste-A-Thon, and this year offers a repeat of the familyfriendly event, 4-7 p.m. July 20. The event is free and open to children ages 18 and under. Families wanting to participate in the event may start by going to the Kids’ Craft Table at the market information booth to receive a scavenger hunt form. Children can then search the market for the foods. At each stop kids will taste fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, or other market products. When kids complete the scavenger hunt and taste the local foods, they receive a sticker and a $1 Market Buck to spend on their favorite farmers market food.

THE NORTHSIDER MONTHLY

From 4 - 7p.m. on August 10, the market ends summer with a Veggie Day, another free event for kids. Children will be able to make foodinspired art projects, conduct a science experiment with vegetables, and make salsa at the market. These events are made possible through a Summertime Kids Grant awarded to the Northside Farmers Market by the Greater Cincinnai Foundation. The grant allows the market to host education opportunities for children throughout the summer market season. Volunteers are needed to help with the event.

When we talk about global climate change, the number one topic that gets covered is temperature. It is called “global warming” after all. However, global warming is only one aspect of the various changes to the climate that are thought to be in store for us here in Cincinnati. One of the other major changes will likely be increased rainfall, and more specifically, bouts of very heavy rainfall. Warm air can hold more moisture than cold air, and so it makes sense that if the air above us has more water in it (because it is warmer) then more water is going to fall on our heads. The average amount of precipitation is predicted to go up, but it is thought that most of that increase will come as a result of it raining really hard on the days that it does rain, as opposed to raining more often. In other words, when it rains - it will pour.

observed here in Cincinnati. An analysis by climatecentral.org using weather data from the Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) reveals that from the 1950s to the early 1990s, Cincinnati averaged approx five days per year with two inches or more of precipitation. From the mid 1990s to 2014, that has jumped to approx 10 days per year (source: http://www. climatecentral.org/gallery/graphics/ heavy-precipitation-a-city-view). And the prediction is that these days of heavy precipitation will continue to creep up from there. This kind of finding is part of a theme seen in a lot of the climate predictions – namely that extreme weather events will become more common. Looking broadly at the earth as a whole, this includes extreme heat waves, extreme droughts, and extreme storm surges on the coasts. It is thought that in Cincinnati we will see more extreme bouts of heavy precipitation, and potentially more flooding as a result.

The 2014 National Climate Assessment aims to predict these changes. The current average precipitation in Cincinnati is approx 40 inches per year (right around average for the US). The National Climate assessment predicts that under current emissions levels, the average yearly precipitation in Cincinnati will increase approximately four inches, to a total of 44 inches, a 10 percent increase (source: http://nca2014.globalchange. gov/report/regions/midwest).

You might say – well how much is two inches of rain really? Is that a lot? Remember that Friday - June 10 - a few weeks ago where it rained for hours? That was only a half inch of rain! We got one inch of rain on Tues. April 26, and 1.56 inches on Sun. Feb. 21. So two inches of rain really is a lot.

Again, it is thought that most of that increase will occur as a result of increased intensity of rain (as opposed to more frequent rain). This is something that has already been

Casey Moothart lives in Northside. He recently noted entire plants growing out of his gutters. But it seems too hot to get up on that roof!

So clean out those gutters and seal the leaks in that roof - because when it rains, it’s going to pour.

CREATIVE WRITING

I Will Tell You the Secret of My Heart The sky is pink and gray just northwest of I-75, behind the old-brick factories in St. Bernard, on the highway where it’s gray and the air smells of soap-factory. It’s almost time and the car won’t start, so we’re here, waiting on the shoulder. “I’m sorry, lady,” you say. But really I’m more sorry, because just now, it’s your iftar we’re losing. You turn the engine over, a few times. We knew it would just cough, and that’s all it does.

“Alhamdulillah.” “Alhamdulillah.” And the first one I think is resignation, and the second one is gratitude, and I say it with you because I am thankful that after all, we’ve both found ways to be fine. And now, why push for details if it’s alhamdulillah already? A friend should make a fast easier, not harder. Alhamdulillah. There are three minutes left and we know we won’t make it.

“It usually works if I let it sit for a while.” That the cars we drive have personalities is mutually understood.

“I’ll text her and tell her we’re late,” you say, as if this isn’t the text we both send every time we go anywhere at all.

We watch the pink sky become more gray. I sit on my hands to keep them warm. You have fingerless gloves. We don’t talk because I think you’re tired and hungry and I wouldn’t want to talk either.

You unwrap a pack of vanilla Oreos and break your fast with some water from your thermos, the one that is stainless steel and alway at your side, and then your can of Arizona Iced Tea. The 99¢ kind. The kind we got from the gas station for free when the clerk saw this ukhti walk in thirty minutes before maghreb. The kind I got for free, too, because I was with you and he wasn’t asking questions. The kind I saw you buying when I bumped into you at Walgreens at 1 a.m., and we were both hanging out there like losers, and we giggled hard

But sometimes, sometimes I do talk. Sometimes I pretend you have the energy to listen even when your mouth is dry and having opinions makes you tired, because I can’t quite help myself and I want to tell you everything I know. And sometimes, I ask you a personal question – Do you remember? A Personal Question – and you say:

and bought more snacks together. The kind we got when we stopped to put $5 of gas in the car before driving up to the northern suburbs. The northern suburbs that I think we only ever abandoned Greater Clifton for when we had an iftar to find. “Do you mind if I pray real quick?” you ask, as if five minutes of communion with God would bore me off you forever. As if you weren’t the one who made me laugh the most, or the one who knew my secrets, or loved me even when I drank wine at my parents’ house. As if tonight I weren’t burning palo santo in my bedroom, writing just this. As if you weren’t my Sister already. I feel embarrassed and grateful. You’ll always ask if I mind, and I will always tell you no, and I do hope we’ll do this until we are very, very old ladies.

AWARENESS

OPINION

Karaoke vs. Coal

Breaking The Trance

On Augutst 5th, the Northside Tavern will host the 3rd annual Rock ‘n Roll Against Dirty Coal: Live Band Karaoke Challenge. The event features ten contestants competing for karaoke glory, a fabulous trophy and bragging rights all to benefit the clean energy campaigns of local non-profit Ohio Citizen Action. “It’s natural,” says Ohio Citizen Action’s Melissa English, “singers need clean air, and burning coal creates millions of tons of air pollution each year in Ohio.”

Cancer care requires startling changes in understanding the place of the patient as a partner in care. Currently, there is a trance from the physician to the patient and his/her family, a steady expectation that the patient has little to do other than follow instructions. Patients seeking to exercise their voices to seek answers to questions, often very hard questions, are too often met with a doubling down of the trance. Patients are paralyzed as much by the physician’s behavior as they are by the fears about the cancer. What can happen if the trance is broken is amazing for both the patient and the doctor, and maybe for the ways in which the patient’s lives their lives with a disease and its uncertainties. We can find new ways to educate for compassion that will replace the trance; we can practice empowerment with the patients and encourage a vulnerable but authentic discussion of alternatives.

Most of the core contestants are either Northside residents, live band karaoke regulars or both. Many, like Jill Gibboney, have competed before. “I love participating in this event every year, and because some of my family has suffered from working in the mines, it’s a cause that’s close to my heart,” she said. Northside businesses, including NVISION, the Comet, Sidewinder, the Northside Tavern and Yeah I Can Do That Construction are sponsors. Event attendees can sing by paying $10, or that $10 can challenge someone else to sing. If the challeng-ee wishes to decline, s/he can either pay $20 or wear the I (heart) Dirty Coal dunce cap. To buy tickets or get more details on the event, visit ohiocitizen.org/karaoke.

In Cincinnati for the past two years the Peace Village Cancer Project has worked with agencies that serve the poor and minorities to create a Cancer Justice Network. Our belief is that a new kind of relationship is essential in cancer care. Using a navigator, a person educated to be resourceful

and compassionate, the patient can have an ally to face the obstacles in both their personal life and the difficulties in working with the health care system. Most importantly, it may be the critical factor in saving lives. Our navigator program is focussed on bringing patients to early screening for cancer and then, if necessary, rapid treatments. Helping people to understand the basics of cancer, the warning signs, and the necessary steps to screening, requires a caring communication, a trusted relationship, and action that releases the patient from the trance of low expectations for survival. Based on a pioneering program created by Harold Freeman, MD, a former president of the American Cancer Society, a surgeon, and an African American, in New York City, we expect navigators to be placed or hosted by community agencies where cancer education has been limited and where cancer mortality is greatest. The navigator, along with a physician, will respond to questions about cancer while the navigator will be available to help a person overcome any obstacles to getting screened. In the Fall we plan on having cancer education at Churches Active in Northside, Christ

Church Cathedral, Madisonville Education and Assistance Center, Southern Baptist Church, the FreeStore Food Bank, St. Vincent de Paul, St. Francis Seraph, Center for Independent Living, Santa Maria Center, Peaslee Center, and Caracole. Breaking the trance opens new possibilities for the patient: they are now partners in being educated and in taking action to have their cancer, if they have cancer, reviewed and acted upon. The navigator stays with the person as long as they would like them to be a part of the treatment process. The navigator emphasizes following a “road map” to success through screening and treatment. The navigator is an educator, a guide through barriers, an ally, and even a friend. The navigator-person team is the new cancer health education model for prevention and treatment. Over time we expect that once the trance is broken throughout the city, the person with cancer, irrespective of their zip code, regardless of their color or economic ability, will be a survivor that can educate the community to a new kind of partnership.

Happen’s Kid Critics Age 8-12 PBS: WORD WORLD - IT’S TIME FOR SCHOOL (DISC 1)

LUCI

A few months ago I received a request from PBS. Their PBS team had been introduced to Happen’s Kid Film Critics by way of Cincinnati Family Magazine (CFM). This year CFM created a dedicated page on their (CFM) website to publish the monthly Happen Kid Film Critics reviews. The CFM website will receive 100,000 visits just this month, now giving our critics a chance to reach thousands and thousands of families. PBS requested that the Happen Kid Film Critics also review their upcoming programming. ‘m very proud that our critics have caught the attention of so many readers and now even PBS that provide educational television programs that we all have grown up watching. Thank you to TT Stern-Enzi, parents, sponsors, volunteers and congratulations to all the kids critics for making it Happen. -Tommy Rueff

THE NORTHSIDER MONTHLY

Happen’s Kid Critics kick off the summer with educational programming from PBS. Their series, Word World - It’s Time for School, might seem to be an odd choice, but it serves to remind everyone that learning never needs to take time off. Lessons arrive tailor-made with elements of jazz/ ragtime and electronic/dance vibes to engage the bodies and minds of young viewers. Taglines fly throughout the segments, each geared towards easy enrichment - It’s time to build a word! and The place where words come alive! - and populated by barnyard animal characters with bodies composed of the letters spelling out their names. The Kid Critics sampled “Shark’s First Day of School,” “Sandbox Surprise,” “Totally Terrific Duck,” and “Dog Wants to Play Ball.” Check out their reactions and see if Word World might be a suitable destination for your eager young wordsmiths-in-waiting this summer. -TT stern-enzi

HENRY

Word World is PBS educational show aimed to target children learning to read. I would say that Word World is right on the money for young kids, but it’s some what annoying for parent, supervisors, or older siblings. The voices of the characters are… let’s face it….. a bit obnoxious. The plots can be repetitive and seem frustratingly long. However the show is geared towards children about ages 1-6. It’s supposed to be groundbreaking. It’s supposed to teach kids how to read and I’d say it performs the task admirably and in a creative way. -Luci

Word World is a PBS animated show that is aimed for younger viewers. Word World is both educational and entertaining! Kids will enjoy the show and maybe learn a few new things. -Henry
