GREENTWP.—As iden-tical twin sisters, KaylaandMichelleMcWilliamsshare a special bond.

They enjoy a close re-lationship and, more of-ten than not, have madechoiceswhich led them tojourney through life to-gether.

“We make indepen-dent decisions, but a lot oftimes we still wind up inthe same place,” Kaylasaid.

When it came time forthem to pursue a career,the Green Township sis-tersbothknewtheywant-ed to be pharmacists.

“We’re the thirdgener-ation of pharmacists inour family,” Michellesaid.

“Itwasalwaysagoal tobe pharmacists, I thinkever since we were ingrade school.”

They accomplishedtheir goal April 27 whenthey graduated fromUni-

versity of Cincinnati’sJames L. College of Phar-macy, earning their doc-tor of pharmacy degrees.

The McWilliams twinsgraduated at the top oftheir class – Kayla gradu-ated first in the class andMichelle graduated sec-ond in the class.

“It was really cool,”Michelle said. “Theydidn’t tell us our positionsin the class until gradua-tion, so it was excitingwhen we found out wewere one and two.”

Angela Koenig, aspokeswoman for UC,said to the best of recol-lections there has neverbeen a set of twins gradu-ate from the university’spharmacy college.

In graduating fromUC’s pharmacy school,the McWilliams twins,who areMother ofMercyHigh School alumnae,carried on a family tradi-tion.

Their mother, ElaineKemper,earnedherphar-macy doctorate from UC

in1985 and their grandfa-ther, John Kemper, grad-uated fromUC’s pharma-cy college in 1948.

Theirmother isaphar-macist at Christ Hospitaland their grandfatherowned Kemper Pharma-cyinWestwoodfornearly40 years.

“It (Kemper Pharma-cy) was gone by the timewewere old enough to ap-preciatewhatwould havebeen there, but I thinkwewould have at leastworked there a little bit,”Michelle said.

She said when theywere deciding what col-legetoattendforpharma-cy she originally consid-ered going to the Univer-sity of Toledo, but Kaylahad her mind set on at-tending UC so she optedto stay in Cincinnati to beclose to her sister andtheir family.

It turned out to be agood decision becausethey supported each oth-er throughout theirschooling.

With their studiescompleted and their ca-reers just beginning, thetwins have both decidedto stay in Cincinnati onceagain.

Michelle has accepteda pharmacist position atBethesda North Hospitaland Kayla will work as apharmacist at theUniver-sity ofCincinnatiMedicalCenter.

learned terms like “appli-que” and “geometricframing,” and he said allhis designs started out asdrawings.

A large white doveadorns the antependiumfor Pentecost and theEaster antependium fea-tures a lamb. For the Ad-vent design, he said heused carpet and uphol-stery tacks, set againstrich purple fabrics, torepresent stars in thewin-ter night sky. The ante-pendium forPalmSundaydisplaysacrownof thornsand three nails.

“The symbols focus onthe feast or the season

very specifically,” hesaid. “They tell the liturgi-cal theology, they’re notjust decorations. I thinkthey help bring peopleinto the mysteries we’recelebrating.”

St.Williamhas an ante-pendium for 12 differentchurch feasts or seasons,two of which he said arefor ordinary time. De-pending on the length ofthe feast or season, hesaid some panels are onlydisplayed for two or threedays while others adornthe altar for weeks at atime. Umberg estimateseach antependium took 30to40hours tocreate, andaparishioner helped himmake each one.

Tina Geers, a St. Wil-liam parishioner, said thealtar fronts have servedas great teaching toolsthroughout the years. Shesaid Umberg uses a Mar-ian antependium during aschool Mass on the Feastof the Immaculate Con-ception to teach the stu-dents about the various ti-tles for the BlessedMoth-er.

“Even the ordinarytime pieces are quitebeautiful and add a touchof elegance,” Geers said.

CINCINNATI—Onwhatwas aperfect evening for baseball,the result was anything but forthe Cincinnati Steam.

The fourth-seeded Steamsaw their seasondraw to a closewith a frustrating 2-0 loss to theLicking County Settlers on July29 in the second round of theGreat Lakes Summer Colle-giate League playoffs.

The Steam left runners inscoring position in five of thenine innings, including leavingthe bases loaded in the fourthinning, stranding runners atfirst and third base in the sev-enth and stranding men at firstand second in the eighth.

“Their guys threw verywell,” Cincinnati coach Brad

Gschwind said of pitchersMattDennis and Dustin Cowart whocombined to allow eight hits,three walks and nine strikeoutsfor the Settlers. “Obviouslyanytime you put together ashutout, they threw well. Wecouldn’t get thebighit, but theirguysdidagoodjobofnot lettingus get the big hit.”

The Settlers broke throughin the top of the fourth inningwhen Nelson Price drove a sin-gle to left field scoring JustinByrd. One out later, Matt Smithrippeda triple to the left center-fieldgapscoringPrice, and thatwas it for the scoring.

The loss capped off a roughfinal half of the season for theSteam that saw them lose 11 oftheir final13games to finish theseason 21-20.

“I feel like that’s what our

problem was in the stretchwhere we started losing; weweren’t hitting together,” rightfielder Jake Richmond said af-ter the game. “Some peoplewere getting hits, a couple peo-ple, but nobody together werereally hitting.”

Richmond, a 2013 Oak HillsHigh School graduate and cur-rent sophomore at the Univer-sity of Cincinnati, was one ofonly two Steam players to rec-ordmorethanonehit in the loss,going2-for-3withadoubleandabase on balls. The other wascenter fielder, Brian Bruening.

“You always want to go outand win a ring, and to know youhad such agood seasonuntil theendandyoucameuprough, andthen to lose like this, it stinks,”Richmond said.

The loss shouldn’t take away

fromtheperformanceofSteamstarting pitcher Matt Jeffer-son.ThecurrentNorthernKen-tucky University Norse start-ing pitcher tossed eight in-nings, allowing six hits, zeroearned runs, zero walks whilestriking out six, but was still is-sued the loss. Jefferson –who isin his third season with theSteam – became the franchise’sall-time leader in both wins andstrikeouts this season while go-ing 5-2 with a 3.95 ERA and 33strikeouts in 38.2 innings thisseason.

“It was just another greatstart byMatt, just likehe’s donefor us all year,” Gschwind said,who just completed his firstseason on the bench for theSteam. “He had a great start,and unfortunately we couldn’tget him the win tonight.”

CLIFTON — When JoshSchneider steps on the swimblocks at the 2014 Phillips 66U.S. National Championshipson Aug. 10, don’t expect to seethe same guy you’ve come ac-customed to seeing in the pool.

After battling a nine-monthslump and depression causedby narrowlymissing out on the2012 Summer Olympics, the2006TaylorHighSchool gradu-ate and 2010 Division I NCAAnationalchampioninthe50-me-ter freestyle is re-focused onbeating his opponents; literally.

“I have that eye-of-the-tigermentality back,” Schneidersaid. “I just want to smash any-bodyIeversee(inarace)all thetime. I’ve put a lot more prideback in my swimming.”

That pride has producedpositive results en route to na-tionals. Schneider swam hisbest time of the year (22.17) atthe 2014 Arena Grand Prix inCharlotte in May and nearlybested that July 21 when hetook first place at the OxfordSectionals July 21. Admittedlytired of not winning, Schneiderused some motivation from2012 to power his way to victo-ries in both Charlotte and Ox-ford.

“I’m just bitter about 2012andI thinkIalwayswillbe,” theUniversity ofCincinnati gradu-ate said. “I honestly know my-self better; have a clearer vi-sion of what I want to do andhow I want to do it. Before,there were a lot of questionmarks before 2012. I have a lotof them extinguished and I’m

just ready tomove forwardandI know what I need to do andhowtodo it and I justhave todoit. It’s harderwork, but it’s easi-er to do because you mentallyknow it’s going to pay off andit’s the right direction to go.”

A lot is riding on howSchneider performs at nation-als in California. The top six ineach event qualify for the USANational Team, but if the for-merYellowJacket’s time ranksin the top 12 in the world he’llqualify to receive a stipend,health insurance and travel re-imbursement. Knowing whatit’s like not qualifying for thenational team (2011) and justinching his way on by .01 sec-onds in 2013, Schneider is fo-cused on 2014 being his year.

“I’m just really hoping thismeet pays dividends,” the 6-foot-5, 225 pounder said. “Ithink the American record willbe broken this year one way oranother and I know I can do it;

GREEN TWP. — Jonathon Dei-fel’s pilgrimage through thebaseball ranks reached anotherapex July 19 when the OakHillsHighSchool senior-to-beverbal-ly committed to play baseball atKent State University.

The decision ended up a fair-ly easy one based on what theGolden Flashes brought to theDeifel’s dinner table.

“I sort of sat down with myparents one night and we cameup with a list of criteria and tryto weight everything out,” theinfielder/pitcher said. “Some ofthe things we did were academ-ics, location, facilities, theschol-arship, the coaching staff, theconference, campus life, playerdevelopment, etc. …We tried toweigh-out the best decision forme andKent just sort of had ev-erything.”

Baseball has always been afamilyaffair for theDeifel’s. Jo-nathon’s father played collegebaseball and coached his sonwith the Cincinnati Color – ateam sponsored by the familybusiness – along with his grand-father and uncle. Mom was incharge of making sure he madeit to practices and games, whilehis brother was there to makesure he never got too high or toolow. His uncle, Greg, not onlycoachedhimback in theday, butis now his trainer.

“It’sreallynice,”hesaid.“Mygrandparents, parents, uncle,my cousins, everyone has beenthere throughout my entire ca-reer. It’s just been a great expe-rience having everyone aroundme so close and so supportive. Ithink it’s reallyhelpedout, espe-cially in times where you’restruggling. Baseball is such anup-and-down game and you

need to stay even keel; you can’tget too high or too low. I thinkmy family has done a real goodjob of keeping me mellow likethat.”

Deifel’s family extends be-yond the household. CurrentOakHills baseball coach, ChuckLaumann, coached alongsideDeifel’s father for six seasonswhen the Color joined forceswith Laumann’s Delhi Eaglesteam. Deifel was 8 years oldwhen the teams joined. So whenDeifel transferred to Oak Hillsafter his sophomore year fromSt. Xavier High School, it was afamily reunion of sort.

“I had a good relationshipwith coach Laumann for a longtime,” Deifel said, who hit .293with 20 RBI, two home runs andseven doubles for theHighland-ers last season. “Me and (Lau-mann’s son) Ben played on theJ.B. Yeager team together and Ipretty much knew the wholebaseball team fromwayback. Itwasn’t an uncomfortable situa-tion at all; it was actually excit-ing to come back and play withthe guys again.”

Now Deifel’s baseball familyis ready to grow.While hewon’tsuit up for coach Jeff Duncanand the Golden Flashes for an-other year, Deifel not only likeswhat Duncan brings to the club-house,butalso theopportunitiespresented on the field.

“(Coach Duncan) is reallylaid back and is there for hisplayers,”Deifelsaid.“It just feltright. As far as playing time,they’regivingmetheopportuni-ty to be a two-way player, whichis something I really wanted todo in college. They have a trackrecord of getting guys in andplaying early in their careersand that was something thatplayed really big into my deci-sion.”

EAST END — Turns outMary Queen of Scotsdidn’t need a stick afterall.

With the arrival of footgolf in Cincinnati, all thepurported inventor of theancient game needed was,well, a foot. And a soccerball.

The latest iteration oftraditional golf – kicking asoccer ball around thecourse instead of usingclubs – arrivedearlier thissummer at Reeves GolfCourse in theEastEndandWoodland Golf Course inWestern Hills. GlenviewGolf Course in Glendalewill add a four-hole footcourse as well. FriendlyMeadows Golf Coursenear Bethel officiallyopens its foot golf courseAug. 9.

Woodland – a nine-holetraditional course – puttwo different foot holesnear each green to makean 18-hole foot course.Reeves uses the par-threecourse along the Beech-mont Levee for its footgolf.

“All thefeedbackwe’vegottenhasbeenreallypos-itive,” said Paul Holzder-ber of Billy Casper Golf,the management compa-ny operating the Cincin-nati Recreation Commis-sion courses. “I knowthere have been some re-peat players. Some of theyounger guys have beenspreading the word. Wehaven’t even started mar-keting it, really.”

Brad Poppell of Mil-fordheard about thegamebyword ofmouth and see-ing Facebook posts about

it. He coaches a U9 boysteamintheCincinnatiSoc-cer Alliance Program andbrought some of his play-ers – including his sonBradley – to Reeves for around July 31.

It was the second tripfor the Poppells, whileEvan Chesnut, WilliamWalker and his cousinChristian Trottier – visit-ingfromToronto,Canada -played for the first time.The boys gave a unani-mous thumbs up to the ex-perience

“It’s really good techni-cal work for the kids,” theelder Poppell said. “A lotof the other coaches arestarting to bring their kidsdown, too. It’s well-priced,it’s fast and it’s fun. I thinkit’s going to catchonwell.”

Poppell said he and hisfour young playing part-ners got around the nine-hole par three course atReeves in about an hour,and that was with a fewholdups waiting for tradi-tional golfers to hole out.He likened the teeshot toagoal kick and putting to atouch pass.

“It’s a great way forthese guys to work ontheir soccer gamewithoutit being a bunch of drills,”he said.

Said Walker, “You haveto decide pretty fast ifyou’re going to use yourinside foot (instep) or theoutside. It’s a competitivegame.”

Amy Timon – regionaldirector of marketing forCasper Golf – said thegame is alreadypopular intheWashington,D.C., areaand is growing in Chicago,Michigan and Florida.

“It’s an idea we heardabout and liked and we

wanted to try here,” shesaid. “It’s less expensivethan traditional golf. It’ssomething newand the re-sponse has been reallyawesome. It’s brought awhole new demographicto the golf course, andthat’s our main thing, ex-ploring newways to bringnew people to golf.”

Holzderber said hehadn’t kickeda soccerballor football in years, but itwas a lot of fun.

“The concept is reallycool. I can’t believe no-body thought of it beforethis. It’s really simple andyou don’t need a whole lotof athletic ability to play,”Holzderber said.

ROSELAWN — Theystarted with the Royalsand Blue Jays, althoughnot in Kansas City or To-ronto.

Phil Anderson of PriceHill opened his baseballcareerwiththeCincinnatiRoyals at age 4.NigelWil-liams of SpringfieldTownship began with theBondHill Blue Jayswhenhe was 3.

Both are now risingseniors at La Salle HighSchoolandbothgotatasteof the big leagues whileplaying among 40 of theregion’s best baseballprospects in the 2014MLB Breakthrough Se-ries at the new P&G Cin-cinnatiMLBUrbanYouthAcademy July 25 and 26.

Cincinnati was one offour cities to host the 2014Breakthrough Series,

joining Brooklyn, N.Y.,Bradenton, Fla., andCompton, Calif.

The invitation-onlycamp for top inner-cityprospects aims to pro-mote baseball as a viablecollegiate and profession-al option for urban youthand to showcase the play-ers in front of college re-cruiters and professionalscouts.

The Breakthrough Se-ries costs nothing for par-ticipants; Major LeagueBaseball and USA Base-ball pick up the tab. Morethan 100 past participantshave been selected in theMajor League draft, in-cludingmore than 60 cho-sen over the last threeseasons.

Players in Cincinnatireceived professional in-struction from formerReds like Dmitri Young,Denny Neagle and Jef-frey Hammonds and

squared off against oneanother in a series of .

“It’s important toget toinner-city kids and givethemachancetobeseen,”said 2005 Moeller HighSchoolgraduateCameronSatterwhite,who played afew seasons of minorleague ball before joiningthe the Reds and the P&G

Cincinnati MLB UrbanYouth Academy.

“It’s an opportunity forurban, inner-city kids tohave a chance towork outin front of pro scouts andcollege coaches and toplay the game at first-class facilities with first-class instruction. It helpsour local game and ithelps the game in generalto have this caliber ofplayers here for this.”

Anderson, a La Sallerunning back, said hisheart is in baseball.

“Mostly the competi-tion is what I like, but Ilove to hit,” Andersonsaid. “That’s my favoritepart of the game, gettingin there and swinging thebat.”

Working with profes-sional instructors gavehim some insight into hisswing.

“I’m learning newtechniques to what you

candointhebatter’sbox,”he said. “(I’mworking on)my extension, really get-ting out and through theball when I swing.”

Anderson hopes beingseen by college scoutswill help him land a schol-arshipoffer;hewould liketo study sports medicinein college.

Williams wants tostudy public relations incollege and already has agood spin on the ups anddowns of baseball.

“It’s agameof failures,but when you succeed it’sthe best feeling in theworld,” he said.

“I had my day in thesun and I enjoyed it,”Young said. “It was doneforme in the past and youwant to give it back tosome kids who might nothave a chance otherwise.Nowyouwant toseeotherkids have a shot at theirday.

What the World Cup really meantGraduating fromMadeira

High School in 2011, with a totalof 117 students in my class, weoften turned to sports to em-brace our small-school spirit.

As a senior, our team of 11girls brought home the OHSAAstate championship, beatingHathaway Brown 2-1 in extratime. Inspiring enough, it wasthe Amazons’ first state cham-pionship.

Being fromMadeira andbeing a soccer fan is natural.So when Brazil was chosen hostfor the 2014 FIFAWorld Cup itdrewmy attention. The UnitedStates Men’s National Team’shighest finish was third back in1930. Since 1990, the US hasonly reached the round of 16three times. So what could weexpect in 2014?

“We cannot win this WorldCup, because we are not at that

level yet. Forus, we have toplay the gameof our livesseven times towin the tourna-ment,” man-ager JürgenKlinsmannsaid. Some saythat quote wasmore of a chal-lenge than a

declaration. But it was a chal-lenge to be heeded as the USAwas pooled with Germany,Portugal, and Ghana in GroupG. The draw labeled “TheGroup of Death.” On paperTeamUSA didn’t stand achance.

USAmatched up with Gha-na in the first round, a countrythat had knocked them out oftheWorld Cup the last two

years. America stunned all thepundits by defeating Ghana 2-1.Clint Dempsey scored in thefirst 34 seconds and JohnBrooks scored late to secure awin. Nice start TeamUSA.

Next was Portugal, anothercountry that was expected totrounce the Americans. The USMen’s National Team playedhard and Portugal was lucky toescape with a tie after SilvestreVarela’s 95th-minute goal se-cured a 2-2 finish, delaying theAmericans advancement.

World Cup fever quicklygrew in the U.S. Nearly 125,000tickets sold to Americans trip-ping to Brazil, no country hadmore. At home Americancrowds grew bigger and louderas the Cup went on. Fans filledto capacity venues like Chi-cago’s Grant Park along withcountless sports bars across

America. USA broadcastersABC and ESPN have theirlargest World Cup audiencesever.

Then comes Germany. TheAmericans played hard, butGermany broke the game openwhen ThomasMuller headed ina perfectly placed ball at the55th minute mark to go up 1-0.The score would remain 1-0through the final whistle, yet,because of a tiebreaker, TeamUSA advanced. The criticshave been silenced.

Unfortunately in the Roundof 16, Belgium downed theAmericans 2-1 in extra time.Although U.S. goalie TimHow-ard played the game of his life,with a FIFA record 16 saves, itwasn’t enough.

Germany went on to win theWorld Cup beating Argentina1-0 while destroying Brazil 7-1

along the way. Our 1-0 loss tochampions validated our in-clusion in theWorld Cup’sRound of 16.

So what did theWorld Cupmean to America? As a countrywe’ve had our challenges, ashaky economy, tough job mar-ket, stagnant incomes, and aworld that seems to be explod-ing in conflict. Though it’s justa sport the country felt com-pletely united. Watching TimHoward’s incredible perfor-mance on a global stage, watch-ing the incredible enthusiasmfromUSA fans everywhere, itjust felt great to be an Amer-ican.

I am not a fan of much ofU.S. foreign policy over thelast 40 years or so.

We have supported thewrong people for the wrongreasons, repeatedly, in allparts of the world. Much of

our problemcan be tracedback to thelack of un-derstandingof the in-tricate de-tails of thelocal cultureand our su-perficialunderstand-ing of thelong term

implications of our actions.We supported dictators withterrible human rights rec-ords from the Middle East toAfrica to Latin America, andwonder why the people inthose countries, once theybecome Democracies (withlittle of no help from us),prefer to do business withChina or Europe.

The State Department hasto bear much of the blame,but meddling politicianswith irrelevant and inappro-priate backgrounds mustalso recognize that they dolittle to further Americaninterests in the world, aslong as they seek to furthertheir own often parochialinterests in this manner.

However, recent events inthe Middle East have shownus just how complicated theworld is, and how what someperceive as a show of weak-ness can be transformed intoa moment of relief later on.The case in point is Syria.The Obama administrationrightly took on much criti-cism for drawing a line inthe sand and then refusing toact, when Assad used chem-ical weapons in Syria. Assadwill go down in history as the

monster he is, but we didlittle to put a stop to him orhis regime.

However, as recent eventsin Iraq have played out, weshould be relieved that wedid not do anything thatcould have been interpretedas aid to the terrorist groupthat opposes him in Syria(ISIS or ISIL, depending onwho speaks) and now is closeto toppling the governmentin Iraq. Had we tried to top-ple Assad using the “rebels”in Syria, we would have cer-tainly have aided these ter-rorists, in much the sameway we aided the Talibanwhen they were opposed toSoviet rule in Afghanistan.Maybe we learned some-thing after all.

The answer to any prob-lem in the Middle East is noteasy. Once we went to war inIraq, we ended the rule of aSaddam Hussein, but we alsoended a strong governmentof a secular state that did notlike us, but respected us forthe force we showed by re-taking Kuwait. If you dealwith brutes such as SaddamHussein and Assad, they dounderstand the language offorce. In turn, the weaknessof Iraq has opened a Pando-ra’s box of interests: Kurds,Shia, Sunni and corrupt poli-ticians all fight for power.

We now have a certainmoral responsibility forwhat is happening in theMiddle East. We need thehumility to recognize ourrole in its causes and theintelligence to realize thatthe solution to every prob-lem is not to be found at thetip of a cruise missile. It mayhave to be found – howeverunpopular this may be –deeper still in the wallets ofAmerican taxpayers.

July 31 questionWhat do you consider themost

important races/issues in the No-vemberelection?Whyarethey im-portant?

“The most important issue inthe next election is taking ourcountrybackfromthe loonswhohave been in charge for the pastsix years. Sidebar to that is stopthe illegal immigration; lettingall these unchecked individualsinto this country is crazy. I knowthe liberals look at them as po-tential voters down the road andnothingelse,but thedamagethatis taking place in the mean timeis off the chart. Wake up folks,this is a crisis that we had bettertake very seriously.”


“School board, because ourchildren are the future of ourcommunity.”

Carrie Cox

“None. It’sallagamebetweenthe two-party system pitting usagainst one another.”

John Bernard

“The school board electionspresent a situation where fresheyes and ears canbecomean im-mediate majority.”

Aaron Gillum

“Get back to the Constitutionwith focus on freedomand liber-ty. Both parties are flawed.”

Joe Kalil

“Closing the gap on financialinequality via the Senate.”

Lesley Chambers

July 24 questionShould pit bulls be banned?

Why orwhy not?

“No, APBT (American PitBull Terriers) should not bebanned. The irresponsible own-ers should be banned! I rescuedmyAPBTwhoIhavehadprofes-sionally trained. He goes every-wherewithme, even towork.Heis overly friendly and peoplehave said they want a dog justlike him. In the 1800s, they wereknown as “nanny dogs” often incharge of babysitting childrenwhiletheirparentsworkedinthefarm fields. What changed? Thethugs and the dog fighting own-ers who trained them to fight. Itis all about how they are raisedas it is with any dog breed, notjust the APBTs.”

May Robinson

“Given the proper circum-stances, all dogs bite. The statis-tics show that the No. 1 biterbreed is Labradors. It doesn’ttake into account that Labradorsare the most popular dog, sothere are more of them, andhence,morebites.It isridiculousto ban or punish a certain breed.In the ‘60s, Dobermanswere vil-ified, then German shepherds,now it’s pit bulls. In the next dec-ade, it may be chihuahuas. All.Dogs. Bite.”

Ariel Wulff

“Pit bulls should absolutelynot be banned. By banning pitbulls you are discriminatingagainst a breed of dogs. If a dogis aggressive it’s because of theway it was raised not because ofits breed. If it’s OK to discrimi-nateagainstabreedofdogs, thenwhy is it wrong to discriminateagainst certain human races orreligions or anything.”

Chelsea Seitz

“Pit bulls should not bebanned. Breed-specific legisla-tion does not work. Severalbreeds or dogs that are mixed

are just likely to attack as a pitandcando just asmuchdamage.Just as every human, every dogis different.”

Gina Stegner

“I do not believe a ban is nec-essary for one isolated breed ofdog. Any dog,whether provokedor not, has the capability of bit-ing. The safest and most sureway of preventing dog bites is tohaveproperlawsinplaceanden-force responsible dog owner-ship. Owners should have theirdogs trained to their commandsandsee that thedog is eitheronaleash or in a safe enclosed spaceat all times. Electric fences donot prevent another dog or per-sonfromenteringtheirspace.SoI feel these have little value. Ipersonallyhadastrongblack labbreakthroughhis invisiblefenceasIwalkedby.Fortunatelyitwasfriendly but had it not been theowner was not present and Iwould have been strictly on myown. It was a very frighteningexperience. When a master hastobeawayfromitsdogheshouldbe sure the dog is in a safe en-closed area. Safe for the dog andalso safe for anyonewho the dogmight see. Just as people, alldogs have their own personal-ities, but most are smart andwhen owned by a responsibleloving and caring person, thesetypes of incidents can be con-trolled and even prevented.”


“I’m ambivalent on the topic.It’s almost always an issue of im-proper pet ownership whenthere’san incidentandIdon’tbe-lieve any specific breed is ‘bad.’Poor breeding is also a factor.”

John Richardson

“When I first had my daugh-ter we had a female pit. Well thefirst night she was home I wastired from lack of sleep adjust-ing to a newborn. Daddy wastired fromworking and being atthe hospital to helpmewhen notat work so I didn’t wake up rightaway. Our daughter was crying.Ziva, our pit, jumped in bed andstarted licking me to get me up.Whenever she would cry Zivawould look in her bed then run togetme.Wecaughtheroncameramany times. She would sleep onthe floor in front of thebabybed.When we went on walks shestayed by the stroller andpranced around like our daugh-ter was her baby. It’s people thatmake any breed dangerous!”

BrynMooth, whowrites the food blogWrites4Food.com,among other creativeendeavors, stopped bymy home last week to

visit myherb gar-den andchat.

Wefound outwe hadlots incommonwhen itcomes tofood andgardening,

though I will say Brynlooks way too young tobe so accomplished. Herblog has doable, reallygood recipes with beau-tiful photos. One thatcaught my eye recentlywas her French picnicsalad in a jar. Oh mygosh, I wanted to dig intothe photo with a fork, itlooked that good. I’msharing the recipe here.

By the way, this fallshe’ll be publishing herbook “The Findlay Mar-ket Cookbook” with sto-ries and recipes thatcelebrate our unique andhistoric Findlay Market.The book focuses onfood that vendors areproud to sell along withtheir stories and histor-ies.

MyMom and Daddrove their Chevy toFindlay just about everyweek when we werekids. They had certainfavorite vendors whoknew them by name justlike I do today. Mom andDad always got goodbargains, witnessed by atrunk load of ethnic

foods for our Lebanesetable!

Bryn’s French picnicsalad in a jar

Bryn says: “A beauti-ful layered salad in a jar(She used aWeck .5LMold jar), perfect fortransporting to a picnicor, less romantically, tothe office. You couldspin this salad-in-a-jarthing a million differentways, but I went for ariff on the classicFrench nicoise salad,with steamed potatoes,green beans and a mus-tardy vinaigrette. If youlayer the dressing on thebottom and the lettuceon the top, then yoursalad ingredients staynice and fresh and crispuntil you’re ready to eat,at which point you sim-ply shake the jar to dis-tribute the dressing, andstick your fork all theway to the bottom to geta bit of everything in onebite.”

Salad8 to 10 small cherry or

grape tomatoes1/2 cup shredded

cooked chickenHandful fresh green

beans, trimmed to 1-inchlengths

3 little fingerlingpotatoes

Few pitted black ol-ives

3-4 leaves of butterlettuce, cut into thinribbons

Mustardy vinaigretteWhisk together:1/3 cup white-wine or

champagne vinegar3 tablespoons Dijon

mustard1 tablespoon honey

1/2 cup olive oilSalt & pepperPrepare green beans

and potatoes: In a pot ofboiling salted water,cook potatoes until justtender, about 8 to 10minutes; remove withslotted spoon to colanderto cool. To the same pot,add beans and blanch for1minute; transfer tocolander and run undervery cold water to stopcooking. Slice potatoesinto rounds about 1/4-inch thick.

Spoon a generoustablespoon of dressinginto bottom of jar, thenlayer rest of ingredientsin this order: cherrytomatoes, shreddedcooked chicken, greenbeans, sliced potatoes,

black olives and, finally,lettuce. Keep refrigerat-ed until about 30 minutesbefore serving. Shakejar to distribute dress-ing.

Rita’s freshpeppermint iced tea

For Matt, who has anabundance of mint andasked: “How do I sub-stitute fresh mint for theamount of mint that’s ina teabag?”

Take a generous cou-ple handful of mintleaves and crush them alittle between yourpalms or with a spoon torelease the healthfuloils. Place into a largemug or jar. Pour 2 cupssimmering water over,

cover and steep about 10minutes. Strain andtaste. Add more water ifyou like. Cool and pourover ice. I like to sweet-en it with raw honey orStevia and serve with awedge of citrus.

Tips from Rita’sgarden

Along with vitamin C,mint is a good digestiveherb and the tea is anatural coolant.

It’s true. Regular oil changes, tune-ups and maintenance can help improve your vehicle’s performance and gasmileage, extend its life and increase its resale value. It can also help reduce traffic congestion due to preventablebreakdowns. But possibly most important of all, taking good care of your car could help reduce emissions bymore than half.
