After the presentation,students were able to attendthree Indian cultural activities.The activities included cre-ating Rangoli (sand art), learn-

ing how to write greetings inHindi and playing the games ofKabaddi and Carrom.

Sixth-grade history teachersSharin Froehle and Mike Har-vey worked with the present-ers to hold the afternoon’sevents.

“This activity was planned

in conjunction with our recentunit on Ancient India,” Froehlesaid. “Dr. Stoeckle approachedus with the idea, and we wereexcited to have the chance toshare a part of the world fromthe perspective of people whoare from that culture.”

“The students always have

many questions about the cul-tures we study, and we’re verygrateful for this opportunity topartner with from Drs. Gruptaand Jaiswal,” Harvey said.

“This was really fun, weloved making the sand art andlearning about what India islike today,” students Grace

Leonardi and Jennevieve Har-vey said.

Seton High School» Seton junior social justice

classes completed the StudentPhilanthropy Project throughthe Magnified Giving Programand presented this year’s Mag-nified Giving Awards to threenon-profit recipients.

Following a prayer service,Roger Grein, founder and CEOof Magnified Giving, alongwith religion teacher Al Kovac-ic and junior social justicestudents, presented awards toA Kid Again for $1,000, theKelly Carol Foundation for$500, and Bake Me Home for$264.

“Students spent the semes-ter researching local non-prof-its, doing site visits and serviceprojects at an agency of theirchoosing, reviewing grantapplications and finally choos-ing three worthy agencies toreceive grant money,” saidKovacic, who teaches socialjustice to all juniors and hasbeen involved with the Magni-fied Giving program at Setonfor the past seven years. “Par-ticipating in the MagnifiedGiving Student PhilanthropyProgram has shown me all thegood that is being done in ourcommunity despite all the neg-ativity that seems to existaround us. There are so manylocal charities that work tire-lessly to make the Cincinnatiarea a stronger community andthoroughly enjoy connectingmy students with these agen-cies while hopefully create alifelong passion for giving inthem that will positively affectthe future of our community.”

Magnified Giving is a501(C)3 educational organiza-tion based in Cincinnati withpartner schools in GreaterCincinnati, central Ohio, north-east Ohio, and Northern Ken-tucky.

Their mission is to educate,inspire and engage students inphilanthropy, and to touch thehearts and minds of teens,lighten the concerns of others,and magnify the impact ofphilanthropy.

“Throughout my experiencewith the Magnified Givingprogram, I have learned agreat amount not only aboutlocal organizations but aboutcharity and philanthropy ingeneral,” junior Taylor From-meyer said. “I served with anorganization called A KidAgain and throughout my timespent at this foundation I dis-covered the true meaning ofphilanthropy – not to justserve, but to donate your time,talents, and your treasures toothers who are in need of suchgifts.”

Rachel Sebastian said thatworking with Magnified Givinghas been a fantastic experi-ence. “My favorite part of theentire process was seeing howpassionate the volunteers atthe Kelly Carol Foundation areabout their cause. Knowingthat I had the chance to help acharity so deserving of a grantwas extremely rewarding.”

Whenever the grandkidsspend the night, I let them“color” their bath water with abit of food coloring.

Emerson, 2-1/2, usuallychooses blue, yellow andgreen. Her sister, Eva, 6, likes

pink and red. Iguess that’s whyI was low on redfood coloringwhen I got outthe ingredientsfor the red vel-vet cake recipeI’m sharing forValentine’s Day.To be on the safeside, I bought 2boxes, one forme in the kitch-

en, and one for the kids in thebath.

Don’t forget those in yourcircle of family and friendswho could use a bit of cheeringup this Valentine’s Day. Buy abox of kids’ Valentines.They’re less expensive thansingle cards and bring joy toValentines of all ages.

Red velvet cake from scratch

When I see a recipe likethis, I wonder how it was everdeveloped. Red velvet cake is a“happy” cake - the vivid colormakes me smile. The cocoagives a hint of chocolate. Yes,you do need a whole bottle ofred food coloring. There arerecipes I’ve seen that use beetsas a natural coloring agent.This recipe has to have foodcoloring. But heck, it’s onlyonce a year…

2-1/2 cups all purpose flour1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa

powder1 teaspoon baking soda1/4 teaspoon salt2 sticks butter, softened (1

cup)2 cups sugar

4 large eggs, room temper-ature

1 cup regular sour cream1/2 cup milk - 2% or regular1 oz bottle red food coloring2-1/2 teaspoons vanillaPreheat oven to 350.Grease and flour two 9-inch

round cake pans. This meansgreasing the pan and thensprinkling it lightly with flour,then tapping excess out. Or usebaking spray with flour.

Whisk together, sift or pushthrough a sieve the flour, cocoapowder, baking soda and salt.Set aside.

Beat butter and sugar onmedium speed 5 minutes oruntil light and fluffy. Beat in

eggs, one at a time so that theyincorporate well. Mix in sourcream, milk, food color andvanilla. Gradually beat in flourmixture on low until blended.Don’t overbeat. Pour into pans.

Bake 35-40 minutes or untiltoothpick inserted in centercomes out clean. Cool in pan 10minutes. Remove from pans;cool on wire rack before frost-ing.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen Put eggs in liquid measur-

ing cup with spout. They willbe easy to pour out one at atime.

Buttercream frosting

I like a thick frosting so Iusually double the recipe. Theleft over buttercream can befrozen for a couple of months.

1 stick butter (1/2 cup), soft-ened

4-1/2 confectioners sugar,sifted or pushed through asieve if necessary to removelumps

2 teaspoons vanilla4-6 tablespoons milk or bit

more if neededBeat butter until creamy

and then beat in sugar, vanillaand enough milk to desiredconsistency. Makes 3 cups.

Cream cheese frosting

Beat together until fluffy:8 oz cream cheese, softened4-6 tablespoons butter, soft-

ened4 cups confectioners sugar

or bit more if necessary1 tablespoon vanilla

Lemon blueberry syrupFor Hank, who asked me to

share this recipe when I men-tioned it during a workshop.Hank picks blueberries inseason and then freezes them.This would be nice over waf-fles or pancakes. Note therange in sugar. Dependingupon the sweetness of the ber-ries, you may need more, orless. For restricted diets, use asugar and butter substitute.

1/2 stick butter (4 table-spoons)

1/2 to 1 cup sugar2 generous cups blueber-

ries, fresh or frozen2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon

juice1 tablespoon cornstarchPlace butter, sugar and

berries in pan. Cook over medi-um heat for 5 minutes, or untilberries pop. Combine lemonjuice and cornstarch and stirinto sauce. Cook until thick-ened, about 3-5 minutes. Makesabout 3 cups. Store in refriger-ator. Warm before serving.

WESTERN HILLSPRESSEditor: Richard Maloney, [email protected], 248-7134

During the four years Ihave served as a Green Town-ship trustee, the safety oftownship residents has beenmy No. 1 priority.

I can also report that trust-ees Triffon Callos and DavidLinnenberg list safety as theirNo. 1 priority. Keeping peoplesafe is a continuous process.Green Township hires only themost qualified police, fire andEMS personnel. Every policeofficer is OPOTC certified,plus they are better educatedand better trained than in anygeneration before. Every full-time firefighter is a paramedicand logs 50 hours of continuingeducation courses every year

to maintainvarious certifi-cations.

All safetyservices per-sonnel areequipped withstate-of-artequipment.The PoliceDepartmentbuys four tofive new police

cars every year, plus each caris equipped with a computersystem that is tied into thelocal, state and national crimenetworks. One new EMS vehi-cle is purchased each year toutilize the most recent medical

advances. The Department ofFire & EMS is equipped withthe latest firefighting, rescue,and emergency medical caretechnology, and has a modernfire truck and ambulance fleet.

The leadership in both de-partments is exceptional. ChiefBart West has a four-year de-gree in police administrationand is a graduate of the FBINational Academy. He hasbeen with Green Township for32 years. Chief Doug Witskenhas a bachelor’s degree in man-agement from the Universityof Cincinnati College of Busi-ness Administration, and hasmany professional certifica-tion, including a Level 5 certifi-

cation in homeland security.Under them is a dependableleadership team in both depart-ments that is superb.

In addition to Green Town-ship’s 35 sworn police officers,we partner with the HamiltonCounty Sheriff’s Departmentfor extra deputies to patrol ourcommunity, and we also getback up support, such asSWAT Teams and RegionalEnforcement Narcotics Unit,when necessary.

Our police department isproactive on issues such asheroin addictions, crimetrends, and terrorism threats.The GTPD was aware of andmonitoring the terrorist sus-

pect Christopher Cornell inconjunction with the FBI JointTerrorism Task Force.

The four township fire sta-tions are adequately staffedaround-the-clock to provide arapid response to fire, rescue,or medical emergencies inGreen Township.

We must all be vigilant toour surroundings. There willalways be safety threats andwe will always be ready forthose threats. I pledge to youthat Green Township safetypersonnel will always be therewhen you need them.

Tony Rosiello is chairman of theGreen Township Board of Trustees.

Safety is the No. 1 priority in Green Township


Jan. 28 questionWhat do you think about

President Obama’s proposal topay for two years of communitycollege, effectively expandingschool to K-14 by taxing 529college savings plans?

“Community colleges are avaluable part of our education-al system, and provide an im-portant option for many stu-dents and families. However,$60 billion is not free, and end-ing benefits to middle class 529college savings plans to pay forit is counterproductive and anadded tax on millions of fam-ilies. President Obama is doinga disservice to our studentswhose generation is already onthe receiving end of a growing$18 trillion debt.”

U.S. Rep. Brad Wenstrup

“I am very much against it.The main reason is the taxingof the 529 college savingsplans. When we started savingfor college for our children wewere told that the benefit ofusing the 529 was that it wouldnot be taxed, so that was a verylarge selling point in us makingthe decision to use it as aninvestment vehicle to help payfor college.

“To now change that aspect,has the bait and switch feel toit. Although many will say that529s are something that areused by the wealthy, we are avery middle class family withboth parents working full time,and are no means wealthy. Sothe taxing of the 529 is verydisadvantageous to us.

“I am all for expansion ofeducation for all, but in thiscase it seems that the middleclass will take the hardest hit.Also, since the working poorand the middle class do nothave the money necessary toinfluence the political system,it is easy for the government toset policies that make themcarry the load while those withmoney to sway the politicallandscape will continuallymake sure that no policy ispassed that is in any way disad-vantageous to them financially,either in the short or longterm.”


“Let me see tax the hardworking Americans who aresacrificing to put money awayfor their children, so we couldpay for two more years of edu-cation for everybody. I guessObama was told those 5 millionillegal children( he let in) won’tbe ready in five or six years forthe job market. Why two? Whynot four years? That’s next.When was the last time an

applicant was told, ‘you know ifyou just had two more years ofa meaningless education youwould be qualified?’ WhenObama said ‘he wanted tospread the wealth around,’ youprobably thought to otherAmericans. Now we know hemeant the all the Third Worldcountries.

“You can work extra hours,you got the dough right? Some-one thinks so. “


“Obama says this new tax isrequired for $2,500 write-offsfor low-income families payingtuition. Forty-nine percent ofthe population currently doesnot pay any federal income tax.This means the new tax reve-nue cannot be used for write-offs because there is nothing towrite-off. This new tax willprobably fund Obama’s newCommon-Core-for-College plan.Obama and the Progressiveswill not stop until they controlevery aspect of your children’seducation.”


Jan. 21 questionThe city of Cincinnati released

a report earlier this month whichdetailed a decrease in crimewithin the city. Do you feel safe,or safer, in the city than you havein the past? Why or why not?

“I see no difference in myperceived safety level in down-town Cincinnati. I work in Cin-cinnati so I see it nearly everyweekday, however, I am usu-ally only there during daylighthours. I suspect I may have adifferent perspective if I fre-quented the city after dark. Iapplaud the police for helpingmake a decrease in Cincinnaticrime a reality. Keep up thegood work. It will be curious tosee what impact on crime theill-advised streetcar will have,when and if it is ever complet-ed.”



THIS WEEK’SQUESTIONThe governors of Ohio andKentucky last week announceda new plan to help pay for anew Brent Spence Bridge, whichincludes a 50 percent toll dis-count for daily users of thebridge. Is this a good idea? Whyor why not?

(Editor’s note: This excerptfrom Beverly Eiding’s book,“Pictures That Must be Seen,”was written by Marjorie Bur-ress and is used with permis-sion.)

LowerDelhi (SaylerPark now)once had asocial clubcalled theCoronadoClub. Its audi-torium was onthe south sideof Lincoln(Gracely) atthe westerncorporation of

the village of lower Delhi,east of Ivanhoe, near the ra-vine or hollow.

In one side of the clubhouse was a bowling alley, andon the other a large audi-torium, or ballroom, with astage at the end, where mu-sical and dramatic produc-tions were given.

Williams L. Kayser, a long-time mayor of Home City, wasactive in the Coronado Club,so stated his daughter, the lateWilla K. Butterfield (1896-1975). Kayser lived in a finehome on Liberty Street (Park-land) across from the park. Asa child, Willa remembered

watching her father pacing upand down their upstairs hallreciting his lines for the roleof Iago for a Shakespearianplay at the club. Willa recalledgoing to the Coronado Clubaround 1906-1908 for veryproper dancing lessons everyFriday night, and the beauti-ful Cotillion dance managedby Margaret Wentzel Squibb,granddaughter of Peter Zinn.

In the late 1920s, WillaButterfield became involvedwith the Girl Scouts andhelped to start troops ofBrownies and Scouts. Shelater served as executivedirector of the Girl Scouts.Through her efforts, the firstsenior citizen program wasestablished in 1956. ,In Febru-ary, 1977, the Willa K. Butter-field Senior Center opened at22 Garfield Place.

Willa’s husband, Asa V.Butterfield (1893-1976),known as “Ace,” also had anillustrious ancestry. His fa-ther, Supply A. Butterfield,was a direct descendant ofBenjamin Butterfield of Mas-sachusetts Bay Colony, c.1620-1635. “Supply” was afamily name, handed downsince Puritan days. As Willaonce told this writer, Mas-sachusetts winters were hard.Food and supplies were

brought from England. Onewinter the colonists nearlystarved. A supply ship fromthe Old World was weeksoverdue. When the ship final-ly cast anchor, there wasmuch rejoicing. A child wasborn in the Butterfield familythat day so he was named“Supply.” Every generationafter that had a child named“Supply.”

After marriage to Willa,Ace joined his father-in-law inthe painting business. Helater served a sheriff of Ham-ilton County from 1931-1935.He equipped deputy cars withradio receivers, sent deputiesto police school and upgradedthe food served in the countyjail. Willa lived around 40years in the Peter Zinn homeat the corner of GracelyDrive and Zinn. About 1970,the Butterfields moved toCalifornia. Until her death,Willa continued to work forthe elderly. Today, in her hon-or, the Willa K. ButterfieldCenter stands facing PiattPark. It is a reminder of hercontributions to the city.

WESTERN HILLS — De-Juan Sherman Jr. hasn’thad problems finding thebottom of the bucket dur-ing his basketball careerat Western Hills HighSchool. The 6-foot-1seniorguard recently scored his1,000th career point in awin over Lockland Jan. 19.

Sherman’s averaging17.1 points per game thisseason, the fourth-bestaverage in the CincinnatiMetro Athletic Confer-ence. Last season, Sher-man led the CMAC inpoints per game with 26.5.

“He’s made a big im-provement from last sea-

son,” first-year coachJames Holland said. “Hispoint total may not bethere (like last year), buthis impact on the game isreally important to whatwe do.”

Holland’s witnessedSherman’s maturity dur-ing his career at WestHigh. Holland was an as-sistant at West High forsix seasons, then left lastseason to coach Newportbefore returning to takethe head coaching job thisseason with the Mus-tangs. So, Holland was atWest High for Sherman’sfreshman and sophomoreseasons.

“To see him (Sherman)grow has been unbeliev-

able,” Holland said. “Hehas a natural ability toplay basketball. He doessome things as a coachthat you can’t teach.”

Like any great scorerthere comes a time whenthe focus turns from of-fense to defense. That’sbeen the process this sea-

son for Sherman, accord-ing to Holland. “To play atthe next level he has toplay defense,” Hollandsaid.

Holland also said thatSherman is a “quiet guy”but also “a bit of a come-dian” and that he’s a greatkid to have in the lockerroom.

Sherman’s had somehelp with senior leader-ship duties this seasonfrom Malik Seldon, a 6-foot-7 forward who’s lead-ing the CMAC in blocksper game (4.8).

Holland on Seldon: “Iwould say he’s one of themost athletic kids in thecity. His shot-blockingability is unbelievable.”

According to Holland,Seldon used to be a two-handed shooter, unsure ofwhich hand to properlyuse. Holland and his staffaltered his shot givinghim a more natural left-handed stroke.

“The way he’s (Seldon)changed his game has giv-en us another dimensionwe didn’t have early in theseason,” said Holland.

The Mustangs havehad a rough go of it thisseason, with just threewins. But they’re learn-ing. Holland’s optimisticthat with strong seniorleaders and good youngguys in the program thatWest High can begin toturn things around.

WESTWOOD — Motherof Mercy has set its sightson the state swim meet.It’s the logical focal pointfor any team in the water— to aim for the biggest,against the best. But, theBobcats have some addedmotivation.

If Mercy has a swim-mer make it to state, third-year coach Kim Hoguewill be dyeing her naturalhair for a new shade.

“If they make it to stateI have to dye my hairblue,” Hogue admittedwith a laugh.

Hogue explained thatlast season, now senior,Megan Buse asked hercoach about the blue hairdye challenge if she madeit to state. Buse justmissed the grand stagelast year, but she’s set hersights on state again so thechallenge was renewedagain.

“She’s a very talentedswimmer,” Hogue said ofBuse who qualified for thefinals in the breaststrokeat the Southwest OhioSwimming and DivingClassic Jan. 17-18. Busewas also the female ath-lete of the meet at the Ma-son Invitational back inearly December.

Junior Amanda Scola isMercy’s other hopeful forstate. Scola and Buse areboth on Mercy’s relayteams which also have ashot.

Hogue said Scola’s an-other hard worker whowas recognized as thefemale athlete of the meetat the South Dearborn In-vitational.

“It’s always nice whenother teams recognizeyour swimmers and theystand out individually,”Hogue said.

Mercy’s at the point inthe season where only big-time meets remain. Upnext for the Bobcats is theGirls Greater CatholicLeague meet on Feb. 4.

“There are just somepowerhouse teams (in theGGCL),” Hogue said. “Ifthey have their best timeand the relays have theirbest times that’s all youcan ask for.”

From the beginning ofthe season until now,Hogue has been workingwith her team on confi-dence. Hogue said that, at

times, her girls can holdback because of the com-petition.

“It’s intimidating to seesome other girl’s on theblocks,” said Hogue. “Idon’t think some of themrealized how fast theycould be and how well theycould do. We’re buildingconfidence so they get upon that block and knowthey’re gonna go in and dotheir very best.”

Mercy was lent a help-ing hand from another lo-cal team earlier this sea-son. Hogue said that whenone of Mercy’s pools had toclose for renovations overChristmas break, one ofthe most important pointsof the season for a swimteam, Oak Hills opened itspool so the Bobcats couldpractice.

“We were just gratefulto Oak Hills for letting ushave pool time,” Hoguesaid. “You don’t see that alot because some schoolsare so competitive. It’snice when schools do thatfor each other.”

Mother of Mercy seniorMegan Buse competes in thesecond heat of the 200-yardbreastroke at MiamiUniversity on Jan. 17 as partof the Southwest OhioClassic.

Jason Roush knew he had a for-midable group of wrestlers head-ing into his second season at thehelm of the Elder program, but thefast and dominant emergence ofsome underclassmen has the Pan-thers turning heads.

Elder is ranked No. 2 in the lat-est Enquirer Division I area coach-es’ poll and is 9-0 in dual meets thisseason with wins over St. Xavier,No. 3 Moeller, No. 6 Oak Hills andHarrison.

The Panthers finished second atthe Glenn Sample Classic at Harri-son in December and second at theCIT Tournament Jan. 17 and 18 inToledo. Now they have designs onbigger things as they made it to theFeb. 4 state duals tournament re-gional finals. The team will faceHarrison at 5:30 p.m. at home; ifvictorious, they face winner ofGlen Este/Moeller in finals to be-come Region 8 champions andmove onto state quarterfinals.

“We have a team that is prettygood top to bottom and that makesus a pretty good dual team,” Roushsaid. “At CIT, I had eight freshmenand sophomores place. That’s been

an exciting thing. We have a lot ofyouth competing right away. We’vecompeted well.”

Senior 195-pounder GageBrock, a district qualifier last yearand the team leader in wins thusfar this season, leads a powerfulroster.

“I think we have a great teamwith a lot of depth,” Brock said.“We can definitely make it throughthe state duals and get pretty far.I’d love to see us win all the way upand go to Columbus. That’s defi-

nitely my goal. Win GCL. I’d love tosee our team do well there too.”

Freshman Austin Murphy al-ready has more than 20 wins andhas placed at every tournament El-der has attended. Murphy had a bigweekend at Brecksville a coupleweekends ago where he wrestledfour state placers in one weekendand knocked off three of them tomake the finals.

“It was pretty exciting,” Mur-phy said. “I didn’t expect to make itthat far and when I beat the threestate qualifiers in a row, it waspretty surprising.”

Senior Joe Isham has moved upto heavyweight and leads the teamin pins. Freshman Ti’Ric Evans has20 wins at 152 pounds. Evans is thenephew of Orlando Scales, a two-time undefeated state champ at El-der who is on the Panthers’ coach-ing staff.

The biggest team win was a 37-22 final at Moeller Jan. 9. The Cru-saders have been the top area teamfor several years and the Pantherswon eight of the 14 matches in adual that Roush said was closerthan the score.

“It shows how far we’ve come

MONFORT HEIGHTS —The La Salle footballcoaching search lasted agrand total of three days.After Nate Moore re-signed to take the headfootball coach and athlet-ic director jobs at Massil-lon Washington on Jan.25, La Salle didn’t wasteany time in its search. OnJan. 28, La Salle hired for-mer Thomas More foot-ball coach Jim Hilvert tothe same position.

“The opportunity tocoach at La Salle wassomething that made meso excited that I had tocontact athletic directorDan Flynn and place myname in consideration,”Hilvert said in a releaseobtained by The Enquir-er’s Mike Dyer. “Coach-ing in the GCL South andleading the young men inthe La Salle Football pro-gram are once-in-a-life-time opportunities. I amalso excited to coach atthe alma mater of my fa-ther, Jim Sr., who was inthe class of 1964.”

Hilvert had a recordof 67-19 at Thomas Moreand he won six PresidentAthletic Conference ti-tles.

Moore couldn’t passup the opportunity “to bean athletic director andadvance my professionalcareer from the adminis-trative standpoint,” hesaid. “When you look at itfrom a professional andfamily vantage point, itwas the right move forus.”

Moore knew that leav-ing behind the school hehad, two months earlier,led to its first state cham-pionship would not beeasy. Moore wanted to

meet with his players andexplain his decision face-to-face. Eventually, hedid, but his players hadalready heard the news.

“I was really disap-pointed in the way it hap-pened, you know, on so-cial media,” Moore said.“I wanted to be the one totell them (players). Thefirst thing I told themwas how it happened isnot what I wanted. Thatwas not my intent.”

Moore told his formerteam how much he caresfor them, and that he al-ways will.

“I still care about thekids I coached at Minstera great deal too,” saidMoore who was at Min-ster before La Salle.

Moore rememberedwhen the La Salle jobopened up he didn’t think

he would land an inter-view, but he “wanted togo big and apply for thebiggest job out there.”

“I didn’t expect to getan interview,” saidMoore. “But, to get achance to coach in theGCL South, the greatestleague in the state andpossibly the country —that drew me to the (LaSalle) job.”

Moore said there’s anassistant athletic direc-tor already in place atMassillon so he’ll havesome help early on. But,the former Lancer saidhe was fortunate to haveworked for a great athlet-ic director the last twoyears in Dan Flynn. “He’sone of the best in the busi-ness,” Moore said ofFlynn. “He doesn’t getenough credit.”


Thomas More College coach Jim Hilvert will take over La Salle’s football program.

Moore exits, Hilvertenters for LancersBy Adam [email protected]


La Salle football coach Nate Moore leads the Lancers ontothe field for the Division II state championship game againstNordonia on Dec. 5 in Columbus.

MONFORT HEIGHTS —Dan Fleming has carvedout quite the career at LaSalle High School. Flem-ing was hired in 1990 andhe’s spent the last 25 yearsmolding the Lancers intoa perennial powerhouseon the hardwood.

On Jan. 24, La Sallebeat Northmont 58-44 togive Fleming his 400th ca-reer win. The winshaven’t all come at LaSalle – Fleming spent oneseason as the head coachat Taylor during the 1987-88 season.

Fleming, a graduate ofSummit Country Day(1981) before going on toplay college basketball atNorthern Kentucky, is thewinningest coach in LaSalle history and he alsobrought the Lancers theironly two state basketballchampionships (1996,2011).

“I just always likedplaying, I always liked be-ing in the gym…I’m luckyto be at La Salle doing itfor such a long time,”Fleming said.

Winning games is nice,but for Fleming it’s notabout the total number ofwins – it’s about champi-onships.

“Ultimately, we’re try-ing to win the state,” saidFleming. “I guess maybewhen I’m done I’ll lookback and say ‘this is a lot(of wins).’ ”

In Fleming’s first sea-son at La Salle, PatGoedde was a senior andthe starting point guard.Clearly, Fleming had animmediate impact, be-cause Goedde graduatedin 1991 and immediatelybecame an assistantcoach at La Salle upongraduating.

“The thing that really

stands out is he tried to setthe tone taking over a newprogram,” rememberedGoedde, who’s in his 24thyear as a member ofFleming’s staff. “Fromthe word go, we were get-ting after it.”

Over his career, Flem-ing’s philosophy hasn’tchanged all that much,said Goedde. He preachesdiscipline, defense andunselfishness. Accordingto Goedde, the biggestchange in Fleming is hisintensity.

“Don’t get me wrong;he’s still intense,” saidGoedde. “But it’s a differ-ent type; he knows whento pick and choose it. Herealized with age and

health you can’t go likethat every day.”

As Fleming looks backon a long career, manythings stand out, likecoaching his two sons,Ryan and C.J., the formerin 2011 and the latter is asophomore this season.He’s had the opportunityto surround himself withhigh school kids, some-thing Fleming says he tru-ly enjoys.

“We’ve had a numberof great families andgreat young men at LaSalle,” Fleming said. “Be-ing around good peoplelike that, that’s what real-ly sticks out. The schooland community have beenvery supportive.”

Fleming on 400th win:‘I’m lucky to be at La Salle’By Adam [email protected]

and it shows how muchour team has grown,”Brock said. “We’re reallylooking to change theview that Moeller is topdog because that’s whatwe want to be.”

Roush said Elder hasbeaten Moeller less thanfive times during the past20 years.

“We hadn’t beatenMoeller since I was afreshman and that was abig deal even then,” Ish-am said. “Coming out intheir home gym during

their Senior Night andbeating them was one ofthe high points of Elderwrestling for me.”

The Panthers host thefirst round of the state du-als beginning Wednesdayand will see the winner ofColerain and MountHealthy in their firstmatch. That winner willface La Salle or St. Xavier.

Three wins in the tour-nament could set up a pos-sible rematch with Moell-er for the Region 8 cham-pionship and a trip to Co-lumbus.

“Getting a dual winover Moeller is somethingthat hasn’t happened awhole lot in recent histo-

ry,” Roush said. “So it wasa big win for our staff andour kids. But we have tobe able to turn around anddo it again if we want toget to St. John’s Arena andwrestle in the final eightof the state duals.”

Elder also has its sightsset on the Greater Catho-lic League South Tourna-ment Feb. 21 at St. Xavierand then the sectional,district and state meets.The Panthers have notwon the GCL Tournamentsince 1990, according toRoush.

“That’s one of our biggoals this year,” Roushsaid. “We want to breakthat streak.”
