synthetic field in eight to10 years.

The school’s footballand marching band pro-grams both benefit fromthe installation of turf,which would allow theband program to hostcompetitions which cangenerate revenue for theprogram.

In addition to the stadi-um renovation, the Build-ing Camelot campaignwould provide baseballbatting cages, tarps forbaseball and softballfields, permanent softballfencing, resurfacing ofthe track and tenniscourts, improved drain-age and improved seatingfor baseball and softballfields, refreshing lockerrooms, and other projectsthat improve the athleticprograms and facilities at

Northwest High School.Some of the projects

are complete. The tenniscourts were resurfacedover the summer. North-west received a grantthrough the Reds Commu-nity Fund and the MotzGroup for baseball fieldrenovations that includedwork on the infield, pitch-er’s mound and homeplate and work around thedugouts and on-deck cir-cles. Joe Pollitt, formerNorthwest athletic direc-

tor, said the makeoverwas a blessing for theschool, as the field was un-playable four or fivegames each season be-cause the fields didn’tdrain well.

The wrestling roomwas expanded and a thirdmat was added, and theschool has a new volley-

ball pole and net system.Smith said the goal of

the campaign is to givestudents upgraded, state-of-the-art facilities for allof the school’s sports.

“This is so much morethan field turf,” she said.

The campaign got a bigboost from a $300,000pledge from Rumpke

Consolidated Cos., a Part-ner in Education withNorthwest High School,as well as two feederschools, Pleasant RunMiddle School and TaylorElementary School. Thecampaign will also re-ceive the $200,000 pledgefrom the 2012 UC HealthAgreement. There was a$25,000 donation from alocal developer and indi-vidual donations of morethan $42,000. The North-west Boosters have nego-tiated a $100,000 loan tocover a Booster contribu-tion to the campaign.

The project is now get-ting permits and workingto coordinate turf, track,and drainage project.Construction is expectedto begin in March. Wat-kins said the campaignwill continue pursuinggrants and donations tocomplete the projects.

“This will be a con-tinued effort,” he said.

Colerain Township fireofficials hung a festivered wreath on the side ofthe fire headquarters thisweek, and they hope thethey are still seeing red asthe new year rolls in.

The Colerain TownshipDepartment of Fire andEmergency Medical Ser-vices is participating in aholiday fire preventionprogram, Keep theWreath Red. The wreath,decked out in 50 red holi-day bulbs. One of thosered bulbs will be replacedwith a white bulb everytime there is a fire in thetownship betweenThanksgiving and NewYear’s.

The wreath will be abarometer of sorts, keep-ing township motoristswho pass by the town-ship’s fire and public ser-vice building at 4160Springdale Road apprisedof the number of holidayfires in the township.

It’s an old-school pro-gram, established in Illi-nois in 1954. AssistantChief Alan Walls said hesaw the program at ClayTownship Fire Depart-ment in Indiana. Thetownship will use Face-book and other socialmedia to tell the commu-nity what happened whena red bulb is replaced, andwill use changing thebulbs as an opportunity toeducate the public aboutthe safety issues involvedin each fire.

Walls said next year, hehopes to have a wreath atevery fire station in thetownship, so more resi-dents have the chance tobe exposed to the infor-mation.

Walls said the fire de-partment partnered withthe Red Cross and gaveaway more than 120smoke detectors in Sky-line Acres in October.

“Community risk re-duction is a buzz word, butit’s a concept we areadopting in the fire de-partment and in the town-ship,” he said. “Typicallythere is a spike in firesduring the holiday sea-son.”

The assistant chiefsays measuring the effec-tiveness of the campaigncould be a challenge. “It

will have to be retrospec-tive,” he said. “We won’treally know for three orfive or even seven years.We’ll have to look backand compare. What we’redoing is drawing people’sattention, raising aware-ness so they pay attention.Fire prevention and edu-cation are one of the mostimportant jobs of fire-fighters.”

The wreath is up andlighted and right now, it’sred. How many whitelights did Watts buy?

“Honestly, I hope wedon’t need any,” he said.“As far as I am concerned,one white light is one toomany.”

HOLIDAY FIREPREVENTION ISIMPORTANT

Cooking fires are theleading year-round causeof residential structurefires in the United States,but according to statisticsfrom the National FireProtection Association, onThanksgiving there is a230 percent spike in thenumber of fires and inju-ries related to cooking.

There may be severalreasons for this increasesuch as the distraction ofmany visiting familymembers, guests andfriends, or the number offootball or basketballgames for everyone towatch and enjoy. No mat-ter what the reason, theColerain Township De-partment of Fire – EMSbelieves a few simple re-minders may help youavoid a fire on this holi-day.

» Regularly check anyfood that’s baking, roast-ing or simmering on thestove or oven, and use atimer to remind you thatsomething is cooking.

» Keep things that cancatch fire away from theburners – items such asoven mitts, food packag-ing, towels and curtains.

» If you have a smallgrease fire on the stovetop, you can smother thefire by simply coveringthe skillet or pan with alid, then turning off theburner to reduce the heaton the pan. Do Not use wa-ter or flour on a grease

fire as either will causethe fire to spread morerapidly.

» Turkey fryers, whilevery popular over the pastfew years, use a largeamount of cooking oil atvery high temperatures.These can easily catchfire or splash hot oil on anindividual causing seri-ous burns. A turkey fryermust be constantly super-vised and used only out-side the house on theground and at least sixfeet from the home. Oilspewing from a turkeyfryer onto an open wood-en deck can easily catchthe deck on fire providing

a pathway to igniting thesiding of the home.

Decorating your homefor Christmas usually be-gins immediately afterThanksgiving. A few safe-ty reminders can helpmake your home saferfrom holiday fires:

» Check the electricalwiring on any holidaylights before using themoutside, inside or on aChristmas tree.

» Never use candleswithout a glass or metalenclosure and place themaway from other combus-tible holiday decorations.When you leave a room,extinguish any candles.

Never leave a lit candleunattended.

» If you plan to use alive Christmas tree inyour home, make surethat it is fresh when youbuy it. One indicator of atree’s freshness is check-ing that the pine needlesare pliable, not brittle orfalling.

» Make a fresh cut onthe tree trunk and placethe tree in a stand so it canabsorb water to keep itfresh.

» Never place a Christ-mas tree near the frontdoor or in your pathway toan escape route in yourhome.

DECEMBER 2, 2015 • NORTHWEST PRESS • 9ANEWS

An ounce of prevention is worth a poundof cure. Especially when it comes to leav-ening baked goods during this super busyholiday season.

That’s why I’m reminding you again tocheck your leavening agents. For bakingpowder, stir a teaspoon or so into 1/4 cupwarm water. It should fizz up right away. Ifnot, toss it.

To test leavening power in baking soda,stir a teaspoon or so into 1/4 cup of vinegaror lemon juice. It should also fizz up rightaway.

Stir a packet of yeast in very warm water witha pinch of sugar to feed it. If it’s good, it will bub-ble/foam after a few minutes. I store my yeast inthe freezer for longer shelf life.

Readers want to knowWhat’s that white coating or speckling on my

chocolate?The whitish layer/speckling is what is known as

“chocolate bloom.” There are two types: fat and

sugar bloom.Fat bloom is caused when chocolate is

exposed to high temperatures and thenallowed to reset, or is not tempered proper-ly. The cocoa butter melts and separates,then rises to the surface creating a whitish“bloom.”

Sugar/speckled bloomChocolate looks speckled rather than

whitish. Caused by an excess of moisturethat makes the sugar crystallize.

Store in cool place to avoid bloom.

Using bloomed chocolateYes, it’s safe. It may not have the “snap” and

silky-smooth texture of tempered chocolate, butthe flavor is still good.

Difference between bitter, bittersweet,semisweet, milk and white chocolate.

Savory, sweet bacon, coffee cake for brunch

Savory and sweet bacon for brunch

This is a good recipe for brunch since it’s yummy warm or roomtemperature. The cayenne gives it punch; the sugar lends a mellowsweetness. Use high quality, thick cut bacon for best results.

1 pound thick cut bacon

Mix:

1/4 cup brown sugar, packedScant 1/2 teaspoon ea. cayenne and black pepper

Preheat oven to 350. Lay bacon in single layer on sprayed sheet.Rub a bit less than half the sugar mixture on top. Bake in mid-

dle of oven about 15-20 minutes. Turn over and sprinkle with rest ofmixture. Bake until crisp, about 15 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Lois Boekley’s Crumb Coffee Cake

Brunch is a popular way to entertain during the holidays.Here’s a recipe from reader Lois Boekley, who treasures her family’sgenerational recipes. Lois said: “I got the recipe from my grand-mother many years ago, and tweaked it to make it my own. I haveshared this cake with many people over the years to welcome newneighbors, for potlucks, and for friends who are under the weath-er.” Lois’ tip on not over mixing the batter results in a more tender,nice textured, cake.

3 -1/3 cups all purpose flour2-1/4 cups sugar1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon1/2 teaspoon nutmegPinch salt18 tablespoons salted butter or margarine1 cup buttermilk1 teaspoon baking soda2 eggs

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease and flour two 9-inch roundor two 8-inch square pans or one 13 X 9-inch pan.

Combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.Using a pastry blender cut in the butter or margarine. (This

can also be done in batches in a food processor.)Remove 2 cups of the mixture and set aside.Stir the baking soda into the buttermilk. Immediately add the

buttermilk mixture and the eggs to the remaining crumb mixture.Mix only until the mixture is evenly moistened; do not over mix.The batter will be lumpy.

Transfer the batter into the prepared pan(s). Sprinkle with thereserved crumb mixture.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean,about 25 to 30 minutes for the 8- or 9-inch cakes or 30 to 35 min-utes for the 13 X 9-inch cake. Cool on a wire rack.

Note: This cake is best served warm. Reheat individual por-tions in the microwave oven.

Nov. 25 questionWould you feel safe traveling

to Europe in light of the Paris at-tacks? What would it take tomake you feel safe there?

“Had this question beenasked even two years ago myanswer would have been a sim-ple ‘sure.’ However, in light ofthe ever-increasing audacity ofradical Islamist groups (yesObama, you should use that la-bel), I would be extremely un-comfortable traveling inEurope with that all too identifi-able dark blue passport. It is ashame that so many innocentshave been killed in such violentmanners. It is a shame that ittakes events with the magni-tude of 9/11 or Paris or Londontrains or US embassies or hotelsin Mali to wake more of theworld up to the ever-increasingthreat radical Islamists insist isgood religion. It is a shame thatwe can’t all just learn to getalong with each other. It will bea real shame if we end up nextNovember with another weaksympathizer living at 1600Pennsylvania. Let us hope anpray for real leadership toguide us through and beyondthe terrorism quagmire.”

M.J.F.

“I would not feel safe travel-ing to Europe or for that matterany other foreign country ex-cept Canada. I have felt this waysince 9/11 and these terrorist at-tacks such as Paris reconfirmmy fears. Europe is being overrun with refugees from the Mid-dle East. Odd how so many aretrying to get out of these Mus-lim countries; yet they are notheaded to Dubai or Qatar. GoFigure!”

Wrist injuries are commonamong young athletes. A fallonto an outstretched hand is acommon mechanism of injury.

The most commonly frac-tured bone around the wristwith such a mechanism is theradius bone, accounting forroughly one third to one half ofall wrist fractures in children.

Though less common over-all, another important fracturefrom a fall onto an out-stretched hand is the scaphoidfracture. The scaphoid bone, asmall bone that sits on thethumb side of the wrist, is themost commonly fracturedcarpal bone. A scaphoid frac-ture is difficult to diagnose asit is often not seen on initialX-rays. It can be devastating ifnot treated properly and canultimately impact return toplay.

Some of the symptoms in-clude pain and swelling at thebase of the thumb and in-creased pain with movementand gripping objects. If youthink your child has a wristinjury, it’s always best to havean examination by a physicianto determine the need for diag-nostic imaging and treatment.Some of the diagnostic testsmay include:

» X-ray: the most commondiagnostic test for a scaphoidfracture. This test utilizeselectromagnetic waves of highenergy to distinguish bonefrom soft tissues (muscles,tendons, ligaments, skin, fattissue). This test is commonlyused as an initial test to deter-mine if your child has sus-tained a scaphoid fracture.

» Magnetic resonance imag-ing (MRI): a radiation-free testthat uses large magnets toproduce detailed images ofboth soft tissues and bone.MRI is best for determiningpathology of tendons and liga-ments that cannot be seen with

X-rays alone.An MRI maypick up ascaphoid frac-ture that aplain filmX-ray misses.

» Comput-erized tomog-raphy (CT orCAT scan):uses X-rays toproduce “vir-

tual” slices of body parts. CTsare particularly important forlooking at bones. They produceimages that are more detailedthan typical X-rays.

Once the diagnosis of thescaphoid fracture is made,your doctor will determine thebest possible treatment plan.The non-surgical approachinvolves a cast that includesthe thumb. Healing time isusually four to six weeks inthese instances.

If the fracture involves twoseparate pieces of the scaphoidbone, surgery may be needed.Compression screws, wiresand implants are some of thesurgical techniques used tohold the bone together. Recov-ery time can vary.

At Cincinnati Children’s, wehave a team of physical thera-pists with pediatric training toassist your child with his orher wrist rehabilitation. Yourchild’s therapist will workindividually with your child todesign a regimen aimed atrestoring function.

The holidays are filledwith joy, happy times, and funfestivities with family andfriends.

As the season quickly ap-proaches, we tend to alter ourlifestyle to accommodate forparties, social events, trav-eling and shopping trips. Formany of us, it's the busiesttime of the year. Along withthe hustle and bustle of theseason comes stress and pooreating habits. We may losesight of our healthy balanceddiets during this time andhave regrets in January. Hereare some tips to eat healthyduring the holiday season.

1.) Avoid eating on the run.Try to plan out your mealsahead of time. Skipping mealsmay lead to overeating laterin the day. Eat when you arehungry. Include low calorie,high fiber/whole grainsnacks, this will keep youfeeling fuller longer.

2.) Pay attention to whatyou eat through portion con-trol. Eat smaller portions andeat slowly. Remember exer-cise and diet go hand in hand.By exercising or walking 10to 15 minutes per day, you canreduce blood sugar and stresslevels.

3.) Remove the skin fromturkey to avoid unwanted fatand calories, eat lean whitemeat instead of darker meat.One serving of a meat portionshould be about the size ofyour fist, palm of your hand

or thickness of a deck ofcards.

4.) Avoid butter and heavycream in recipes. Instead, tryusing half portion skim milkand half portion plain Greekyogurt in mashed potato ordip recipes. Refrigerate gra-vy allowing the fat to harden,skim off the fat from the top -this will reduce unwanted fatand calories.

5.) Avoid sour cream orcream cheese dips orspreads, try humus instead.Bring a favorite low calorie/healthy dish or appetizer toyour holiday party.

6.) Eat more fresh fruitand raw vegetables, try eat-ing them without dips.

7.) Try baked sweet pota-toes instead of candied yams.Avoid overeating carbohy-drates. For better carbo-hydrate control, spread car-bohydrate type foodsthroughout the day.

8.) For the sweet tooth inall of us, choose pumpkin piewith no whipped cream over

pecan pie and try gingerbread cookies rather thaniced sugar cookies.

9.) Alcoholic beverages,punches and soft drinks pro-vide little nutritional valueand may lead to weight gain,avoid or limit your intake ofthese beverages. Drink plen-ty of water to stay hydrated;this will also help promotethat full feeling in an effort toavoid overeating.

10.) Chew gum after youeat to avoid snacking or nib-bling on leftovers. You mayeat less if you wear snugfitting clothes.

To stay healthy and avoidweight gain throughout theholidays, put focus on imple-menting the above simple tipsinto your lifestyle. Eat anddrink responsibly and re-member to make time forexercise.

Healthy eating tipsduring the holiday season

Millennials are in theunique position of navigatingcollege debt and low incomesimultaneously, all the whilebeing in their best-ever posi-tion to benefit from savingmoney.

Due to the power of com-pound interest, Millennials –people in their 20s and early30s-- stand to gain most fromsaving now than other genera-tions. But with many demandsand limited resources to allo-cate, how do Millennials prio-ritize between paying off debtand saving for the future?

The first step is to deter-mine individual cash flow.While they usually have lowersalaries than more experi-enced co-workers, Millennialsshould focus on how muchmoney they have after ex-penses. Finding ways to cutexpenses can go a long way.Netflix and Sling TV are afraction of the cost of cable.Cooking dinners and packinglunches yields significantsavings over restaurant costs.

Millennials should giveserious thought to what ex-penses can be cut and thenmake some changes. Cuttingexpenses by $5 a day im-proves annual cash flow by$1,825; $1,825 invested eachyear at six percent for thenext 40 years adds $300,000 toa retirement portfolio.

Assuming cash flow is

positive, howbest should itbe utilized?For mostMillennials, itwill be a mixof estab-lishing anemergencyfund, payingdown debtand buildingretirement

savings. Emergency savingsshould range from one to sixmonths of expenses andshould depend on severalfactors, including stability ofincome, number of incomesources, and indebtedness,among others.

Millennials need to knowtheir debt situations and theinterest rates they are payingon loans. The minimum pay-ment needs to be paid on eachloan, with extra cash flowgoing to loans with an interestrate above five percent. Debtstacking is an effective wayto pay down high-interestdebt.

For example, assume aMillennial has $900 desig-nated to pay down threeloans, each with a $250 mini-mum payment. A total of $750goes to minimum payments,with the extra $150 going tothe highest-interest loan topay it down quicker. Oncethat loan is paid off, the $400

that was paying down thatloan is added to the $250 be-ing paid to the second loan.Consolidating student loansshould be considered, too.

When overwhelmed bydebt, it can be tempting forMillennials to ignore retire-ment savings; however, it’scostly to do so, since they willnot benefit from time in themarket and compound in-terest. Plus, many 401K pro-grams match employee con-tributions. This is essentiallyfree money that should beused to their advantage.

For Millennials who workat a company that does notoffer a 401K or a match, anIRA is a good way to accumu-late retirement savings.

Juggling financial de-mands isn’t easy, yet it’s im-portant to create a plan andsee it through. Deciding howmuch money to allocate forpaying down debt and build-ing up savings depends onindividual circumstances.Each situation is unique and adiscussion with a CertifiedFinancial Planner can helpdetermine the right solution.

Kevin Webb is a certifiedfinancial planner with KehoeFinancial Advisors of Cincin-nati, a 33-year-old financialadvising and services prac-tice. For more information, goto www.kehoe-financial.comor call 481-8555.

For the last quarter century, LaSalle swim coach Mike Lienhart hasbeen the swim coach for the Lancers.

In his 25th season, Lienhart has an-other experienced and talented lineupthat could cut through the water forthe podium this season.

But, to do that, La Salle will have toreplace some key swimmers.

“We graduated seven seniors whohad major impacts on varsity,” saidLienhart, who added there are only 21boys on the roster this year and sevenof those are again seniors.

The Lancers return four districtsqualifiers from last season in seniorEthan Stock, junior Anthony Hale, ju-nior David Orth and sophomore ColeTrotta, who trains year round in thesport.

“The largest class on the team isseniors (seven), whom have all hadvarsity swimming experience,” saidLienhart.

La Salle also has experienced con-tributors returning in sophomore Dan-iel Nader, senior Cameron Nichols,senior Randall Ellis, senior Alex Hous-er, senior Aaron Keller, senior DanielLepsky and senior Sam Moore.

Lienhart said his team has alreadyexhibited a “very positive work ethicand determination.” For the Lancers tohave a strong season, “many untestedunderclassmen are going to have to fillvarsity roles,” said Lienhart.

The Lancers have big meets on Dec.2 against Oak Hills, Dec. 15 at the Bestof the West meet, and the GreaterCatholic League meet Feb. 3.

Claire Shannon took over as coachof the boys and girls swimming teamsthis year at Colerain. Shannon takesover for Caroline McIver, who said theboys are coming off a seventh-placefinish in the Greater Miami Confer-ence last season. That’s the highest theCardinals have placed in the GMC insome time, and they’re hoping formore progress this season.

Last year’s bright season didn’t endwith the GMC meet, it actually endedwith a trip to the district meet. JuniorJoel Dennis and sophomore GriffinBachman both return this season after

qualifying to districts. Dennis, who swam fifth at the GMC

meet in his respective events, quali-fied to districts in the 100 backstrokeand 100 butterfly. Bachman made it todistricts in 100 butterfly as well.

Shannon hopes the Cardinals cancontinue to progress and hopefullymore boys get in on the action thisyear.

St. Xavier High School's swimteam has, for a long time, held the statepodium in a stranglehold. The Bomb-ers have cultivated and sustained oneof the most impressive programs thearea has ever seen.

Last season, St. Xavier won its sev-enth consecutive Division I statechampionship (36th all-time) and theBombers return buses full of top-tiertalent in the water.

The Bombers also rotated thecoaching carousel this year. Longtimehead coach Jim Brower moved fromthe head position to an assistant, tomake way for former assistant TimBeerman to take over as head coach.Beerman was previously a head coachat Ursuline Academy.

COLERAIN TWP. – The Colerain girlsswimming and diving team hopes the im-pending winter ends the same way it didlast year, with the arrival of spring and atrip to the state swim meet.

If the Cardinals hope the latter to betrue, new coach Claire Shannon will haveto pick up when former coach CarolineMcIver left off. The Cardinals had amemorable season last year with two in-dividual state qualifiers, both of whomreturn this season.

The Cardinals know they have dyna-mite in their top-two returning swim-mers, but the success of the team will de-pend on their ability to score across agreater scope of events.

Sophomore Hailee Trotter and juniorKerry Tepe both qualified in one event tothe Division I state meet individually lastseason.

Trotter, a first-team selection in theGreater Miami Conference as a fresh-man, finished 10th – two spots off the po-dium – in the 100 backstroke at the statemeet last season. Tepe stormed out of thedistrict and finished 22nd at state in the100 breaststroke. Both have worked hardto improve those standings this season.

If the Cardinals hope to send any moreswimmers to districts or state, they’llhave to swim together and continuallyimprove as the season gets older.

There’s excitement brewing in thewater at McAuley. The Mohawks have toreplace five seniors who graduated,which includes Amanda Deller, an indi-vidual state qualifier last season.

But, the Mohawks have a rare, yetcoveted, roster filled with steady experi-ence and optimistic newcomers.

“This is probably the most excitedI’ve been for a season in a long time,” saidsixth-year coach Eric Stock. “As far astime, they’re way ahead (of last year).The most exciting thing is anyone on theteam can be on the relays … we’re a com-plete team; we’re starting to become aprogram where we have consistencyeach year.”

McAuley returns six swimmers whocompeted at last season’s district meet.Returning from districts are seniors Eri-ka Lucas and Lia Hergenrother; juniorsClaire Roell and Emma Barbee; sopho-

mores Anh Nguyen and Allison Koenig. Stock said Nguyen has really im-

proved in the breaststroke. Roell was anindividual district qualifier in the 500freestyle last season, and Stock said she’sa great distance swimmer. Lucas is a but-terfly expert, while Hergenrother ismore of a freestyle sprinter.

There isn’t a traditional leader for theMohawks this season, but seniors Lucas,Hergenrother, Noelle Rotte and KelseyMooney have all done their share helpinga young team with 12 freshman.

“McAuley, for the past 10 years, hashad a state qualifier coming back,” Stocksaid. “We have a wide variety of depththis year; we have four seniors who’vedone an excellent job making sure every-one is motivated.”

The Mohawks will attempt to repeatas champions of the Best of the Westswim meet Dec. 10 at Gamble NippertYMCA.

Now in his fourth season coaching thegirls swim team at Roger Bacon, coachBen Stone likes how the girls have ap-proached this season. Stone pointed tothe hard work he’s already witnessed be-fore the grueling stretch of winter reallytakes its toll.

team is 100 membersstrong and while we cer-tainly can point to someof our tops swimmers atthe state level,” Beermansaid, “the focus of theteam is really about help-ing everyone discoverand reach the potentialthey have.”

Junior Grant House iswithout question the fast-est swimmer in state.House has already wonfour individual statechampionships (two as afreshman, two as a sopho-more), and he’s helped ona number of state cham-pionship relay teams.Last year, he won the 100and 200 freestyle races atstate.

Senior Matt Slabe, also

an individual state quali-fier, swam on the 400freestyle relay team thatwon a state title last year.Junior Luke Sobolewski’sanother experiencedswimmer who won a statetitle on the 200 medley re-lay last year. JuniorCharles Leibson was anindividual state qualifierin two races last year, andjust finished helping theBombers win a water po-lo state championship.Sophomore Justin Gren-der was another differ-ence maker at state lastyear, as was sophomoreNicholas Perera.

Beerman has alsobeen very impressed byfreshman Jake Foster.

“They’re just nowlearning how good theycan really be,” said Beer-man. “Their effort levelis off the charts in termsof what we’re asking of

them. It is a talentedteam, but we’re excited tosee how far that talentcan take us as a team. Wecertainly hope with goodhealth and good trainingthat we can return tostate and do well. Thereare any number of indi-viduals (outside of theswimmers mentionedabove) on this team whocan contribute to our suc-cess.”

If the plan is to buildoff what Roger Bacon’sboys swimmers accom-plished last year, then theSpartans could be in for aseason that runs all theway to the final weekend.

Last year’s teamseemed to turn it on forthe postseason, andfourth-year coach BenStone hopes that’s thecase again this year.Stone’s squad gets a greatglimpse of top competi-

tion all season in theGreater Catholic LeagueCoed, which usually hashis bunch prepared.

Roger Bacon’s top re-turner is senior DrewSuffoletta, who was a dis-trict qualifier last seasonin two individual eventsand two relays.

“He has the best shotat making state for us,”said Stone. “Last year heswam 50 and 100 free andwas extremely close tomaking state (in boththose races). Our 200 and400 free relays shouldhave a good shot also.”

Stone added that thetwo relays only missedstate by a few spots andonly one swimmer gradu-ated from those relays.Stone’s said there’s cur-rently six guys compet-ing for the four relayspots, and it’s a close com-petition.

Finan is “pretty much alock” for districts thisyear. His reasoning is be-cause of how hard she’sworked already this year.

If the rest of Roger Ba-con’s roster follows suit,the Spartans could sur-prise some people thisyear.

PIQUA – La Salle’s un-derdog role lasted for ahalf Friday night in a con-sistent rain at Piqua in aDivision II state semifi-nal.

For the first time thispostseason, La Salle (12-2)needed a definitive sec-ond half to come back andbeat Perrysburg (13-1) 49-28 to win its ninth consec-utive playoff game andbook a return trip to thestate final next weekendagainst Massillon Perry(12-2). La Salle outscoredPerrysburg 35-7 in thesecond half to pull awayfrom the Yellow Jackets.

It was the defense thatjump-started La Salle’scome-from-behind win,which featured a 21-0 LaSalle edge in the thirdquarter alone. With histeam trailing 21-14 follow-ing intermission, La Sallejunior two-way standoutJarell White returned aninterception 39 yards for atouchdown to tie the game21-21 with 8:18 left in thethird quarter.

“Right off the bat (inthe second half), we setthe tempo,” said first-yearLa Salle coach Jim Hil-vert. “Defensively, turn-overs, we start smackingpeople around, beingphysical on defense. Wecontained the quarter-back. I’m so proud of theway our defense respon-ded ... we settled down,

35-7 in the second half. Wewere playing Lancer foot-ball. I’m proud of ourguys.”

Two plays later, juniordefensive back TreSeanSmith, who finished withtwo interceptions,stepped in front of anoth-er Perrysburg pass and LaSalle’s big offensive lineled senior Nick Watson ona 1-yard quarterbacksneak to give La Salle itsfirst lead of the game 28-21 with 4:48 to play in thethird quarter.

A three-and-out forPerrysburg, followed bytwo big plays from LaSalle seniors Jeremy Lar-kin and Josh Gebing setWatson up for anotherrushing touchdown togive La Salle a 35-21 leadafter three quarters.

Hilvert said he told histeam at halftime, “We got-ta go get it. Don’t waitaround for anybody else.We gotta grab it and gotake it.”

With 10:24 left in thegame, Perrysburg seniorquarterback Trevor Hafn-er scrambled for a 36-yard touchdown to cutinto La Salle’s lead, 35-28.

The Lancers went tothe ground and put Per-rysburg away with a Lar-kin touchdown run tomake it 42-28 with 3:31leftin the game. Larkin, whobecame the GreaterCatholic League South’sall-time leading rusher inthe game, added a 21-yardtouchdown run late in the

fourth quarter. Larkin fin-ished with 161 yards rush-ing on 16 carries withthree touchdowns.

Larkin said the Lanc-ers responded in the sec-ond half and began play-ing “like it was our lastgame.”

“It’s incredible,” saidLarkin, who’s committedto UC. “To be in this posi-tion, to play 30 gameswithin two years. I’m gon-na go out there next weekand leave it all on the line,make the most of our daysand just enjoy the mo-ment.”

Perrysburg, which fin-ished the regular seasonranked No. 1 in the state’sfinal Associated Pressstate poll (La Salle was No.4), got on the board firstafter a Watson intercep-tion on the Lancers’ firstpossession of the game.Senior running back JoshHaynes gave Perrysburga 7-0 lead with a 2-yardtouchdown run with 6:45left in the first quarter.

A second straightthree-and-out from LaSalle’s offense, followedby a 90-yard scoringdrive, capped by a 26-yardtouchdown run by Hafner,that left the Lancers un-characteristically trailing14-0 with 2:39 left in thefirst quarter. It’s the larg-est deficit La Salle’s facedthis postseason.

La Salle had problemsslowing down the YellowJackets’ dual-threat at-tack offense in the first

quarter. Hafner, who gaveLa Salle fits for nearlythree quarters, finishedwith 149 rush yards on 16carries with two touch-downs. Hafner was 17 of27 for 193 yards, onetouchdown and three in-terceptions.

“I think the first halfwe were a little uptight be-cause they didn’t thinkthat was gonna happen,”said Hilvert. “But, wedidn’t flinch. At halftimethey settled down, andkept plugging away.”

The two-touchdowndeficit brought La Salle’soffense to life, which an-swered with a drive and a5-yard touchdown run byWatson, who finished withthree rushing touch-downs.

Perrysburg went to theair for its third score ofthe first half, a 10-yardpass from Hafner to Con-nor Meredith gave the

Yellow Jackets a 21-7 leadwith 6:52 left in the firsthalf.

Christian Turner re-covered a sneaky onsideattempt and Jeremy Lar-kin got loose for a 26-yardtouchdown run to makethe score 21-14 with 5:15before halftime.

La Salle squandered anopportunity just beforethe break. The Lancerswere pinned at their own1-yard line, 2:34 on theclock, and Josh Gebingcaught a 62-yard pass toflip the field. La Salle hadsecond-and-goal fromPerrysburg’s 1-yard line,but a false start backedthe Lancers up and seniorDrue Chrisman’s 23-yardfield goal attempt driftedright as time expired inthe first half.

Next weekend in OhioStadium, the Lancers willplay their 30th game in atwo-season span in an ef-

fort to win consecutivestate championships.

“It’s very, very excit-ing to be running for astate championshipagainst great football inOhio, some of the bestfootball in the country,”said Hilvert. “To be able toplay for a state champion-ship, it’s tough to repeat.It’s tough to win. I’mproud of my coachingstaff. One of our coacheslost his dad last night, andour staff did a great jobpreparing our guys. Ourkids stayed with the planand played their buttsoff.”

The OHSAA con-firmed that La Salle willmeet Massillon Perry onFriday at Ohio State at 8p.m.

Larkin said next week-end’s state final is “gonnabe very emotional, hope-fully we can come awaywith a win.”

Readers on vacation

PROVIDED

The Custer, Held and Lutz families of Green Township andDelhi Township took their Press on vacation to San Franciscoand Napa Valley.

This is the time ofyear when consumersflood the stores lookingfor bargains. Yet, oneof the biggest gifts forthe holidays continuesto be gift cards. Now awarning, if you buy orreceive a gift card, youhave to be very careful.

The potential forfraud with gift cardscontinues to grow eachyear and federal au-thorities continue towarn about severalscams.

In one scam, thieves

are usinggift cardexchangesand auc-tion web-sites tosteal mon-ey fromunsus-pectingcard buy-ers and

sellers. To combat this,always check reviewsof any website you’replanning to use. Bewary of sites sellingcards at a discount or in

bulk. Finally, reviewgift card balances be-fore and after buyingthe card.

Another scam in-volves gift cards youbuy in a store. All toooften when the recipi-ent of such a card goesto use it, they eitherfind there’s hardly anymoney left or they finda block has been placedon the card.

Tampering with giftcards has become a bigproblem and expertssay you need to protect

yourself by takingsome simple precau-tions. First, have thecashier scan the cardbefore you swipe yourcredit card.

Next, take the cardout of the package andinspect it to make sureit hasn’t been tamperedwith. There should beno rips, tears or anyother opening. Thenyou can use your creditcard to pay for the giftcard and activate it.The activation deter-mines how much money

is on the gift card.The problem is

thieves copy down thenumbers on unsold giftcards, wait till they areactivated, then steal themoney by using thenumbers for onlinepurchases. Later, whenthe recipient of the giftcard goes to use thecard they find there’slittle or no money left.

The Better BusinessBureau recommendsthe safest gift cards tobuy are those in a thickplastic coating. Alwayscheck the back of thecard to make sure thePIN number has notbeen scratched off. If

you can see a PIN num-ber its best to put thecard back and get an-other one.

Finally, those whoreceive gift cards forthe holidays should usethem as soon as pos-sible. This may preventa thief from stealingthe money before youuse it, and it also stopsthe gift card companyfrom decreasing itsvalue for non-use overtime.

Members of the General Assem-

bly clearly voiced their support for

a smoke-free Kentucky bill for the

2015 session last week that mirrors

previously failed legislation in 2014.

Denouncing the argument that a

smoke-free bill prohibiting smoking

in public places would kill business,

Brent Cooper, a business owner

from northern Kentucky, said not

only are businesses prospering

across the Ohio River in Cincinnati

with a smoke-free law, but that the

pubs in Ireland haven’t shut down

since the country put a ban on

smoking in the workplace 10 years

ago.Many legislators conferred that

public smoking was indefensible in

Kentucky given the state’s bad

health ratings compared to other

states throughout the U.S.

According to testimony from

Wayne Meriwether, CEO of Twin

Lakes Regional Medical Center,

second-hand smoke is just as dan-

gerous for those that don’t smoke.

all Kentuckians smoke. We lead the
