Mount Healthy officialshave been meeting with resi-dents to answer questions andtalk about theupcoming incometaxhiketosupport thepolicede-partment.
Bill Kocher and severalMount Healthy City Councilmembers including Mayor JoeRoetting met at the MountHealthy Community CenterOct.15 to go over the challengesfacing the police departmentandhow the tax hike on theNov.4 ballot will help the city notonly address issues in thepolicedepartment but tackle neces-sary road repairs as well.
The city is asking voters toapprove a .5 percent increase intheMount Healthy City income
tax, for the operation of theMount Healthy Police Depart-ment. It would raise the city’sincome tax to 2 percent.
About two dozen people at-tended the Oct. 15 meeting.
Officials said the tax hike
would allow the city to hirethree additional full-time offi-cers. The increase would beused for police protection ser-vices, including salaries, equip-ment, vehicles and communica-tion needs.
Kocher told residents at themeeting that the city has haddifficulty putting officers onthe street. Chronic turnover is-sues have plagued the part timeroster, with the city beingforced to replace 17 part timeofficers this year, losingmost tofull-time positions in other de-partments.
He said that’s because thereis a high demand for police offi-cers, as many are retiring thisyear because of changes to theOhio Public Employees Retire-ment System. The city hassigned an agreement with
Springfield Township to helpfill shifts when there aren’tenough officers available, butKocher said hiring three full-time officers will definitelyhelp the staffing situation.
There were questions fromthe audience, answered by Ko-cherandcouncilmembers inat-tendance: Yes, the city is look-ing at every avenue to savemoney. No, this doesn’t affectpeople’s retirement income.
Kocherexplainedthereweremeetings before the income taxincreasewasapprovedbycoun-cil todecidehowbest to addressthe problem of providing policeservices and repairing streetsinMountHealthy.He said coun-cil decided against asking for aproperty tax increase and de-cided to ask for a small increaseto the income tax instead.
Officials said using tax hikemoney to support the police de-partment frees other fundsused to support the police de-partment thatcouldberedirect-ed tomuchneededroadrepairs.

Even Batman has to go hunting for just the right pumpkin. Jaden Durante, 6, found the perfect one at theannual Harvest Festival in College Hill with Lauren Tritschler of Finneytown.
The harsh weather thatblasted the nation this past win-terdidmore than freeze folks tothe bone and drive up energybills.
Thebitter cold temperaturesand snowfall also required mu-nicipalities throughout thecountry to use road salt in rec-ord amounts, resulting in limit-ed supplies and higher pricesfor salt this year.
“We’ve spent about twice asmuch as we did last year,”Green Township Public Ser-vices Director Joe Lambingsaid.
He didn’t provide an exactfigure for how much it cost thetownship per ton this year, butthe township paid $47.91per tonin 2013. Lambing said the town-ship has about 200 tons of saltremaining from last winter andhe’s ordered 2,800 tons for thecoming winter. He said the salt
is expected to be deliveredsometime in November or De-cember.
Colerain Township PublicWorks Director KevinSchwartzhoff said his depart-mentwasable to order its salt inpartnership with the Ohio De-partment of Transporation.That was a boon because theprice was good: $65.30 per ton.ColerainTownshipbought 5,000tons of salt through ODOT andhas received about two-thirdsof its shipment at this time.
Mike Hinnenkamp, Spring-field Twp. Administrator, sayshis township also went throughODOT and bought about 4 tonsat the $65.30 price. He says hehasheard fromanumberofmu-nicipalities who need salt andcan’t get it looking to get someof his. Springfield Townshipwill share salt with MountHealthy and theMountHealthyCity School District, he said.

Springfield Townshiphas received about halfthe salt ordered and willbe entitled to a season re-fill at the same price.
While the township ispleased not to be paying$100-plus per ton,Hinnen-kamp says it’s still doublewhat they paid last year.
Higher salt pricesmayhave hit Ohio the hardest.Most counties are payingbetween 43 percent and128 percent more for salt
this year compared to lastyear. The state is steppingin to help some countiesby buying 170,000 tons ofadditional salt from an In-diana supplier. Salt domesin Cincinnati are about 30percent full right now.The city locked in 40,000tons of salt at $75 per ton,
which is less expensivethan Hamilton County,which paid $105 per ton,and the state, which paid$120 per ton.

GOP Ohio House can-didate JonathanDever to-day accused opponentMi-cah Kamrass of cooperat-ing with a political actioncommittee that is spend-ing to support the Demo-crat’s campaign.
The accusations arethe latest to fly in North-east Hamilton County28th Ohio House district,host to one of the closestand nastiest Statehouseraces in Ohio.
Coalition for Ohio’s Fu-ture, a union-backed PAC,has run ads againstDeverand in support of Kam-rass. Those ads includedsome of the same photosas Kamrass’ own market-ing material, mailed bythe Ohio Democratic Par-ty. But the law prohibitscandidates from coordi-nating with PACs that in-dependently run ads intheir races.
So House Republicansplan to file a complaintFridaywith theOhioElec-tions Commission, thecaucus’ attorney saidThursday at a press con-ference. Possible viola-tions also could includefailure to disclose cam-paign contributions, hesaid. A Kamrass spokes-womandismissedthealle-gations as a “pathetic dis-play from the desperateDever campaign.”
The photos were paidfor by the Kamrass cam-paign, but they are avail-able for public downloadon the Flickr site of Kam-rass’ brother, Jared, whoworks on the campaign.
Republicans pointed toa client identificationnumber that appears onadsfromboththePACandthe Kamrass campaign,saying the number sug-gests that one personlined up all the ads.
The Kamrass cam-paign used a national po-litical direct-mail groupcalled JVA Campaigns,whichworks for left-lean-ing candidates andgroups.Thenumber,1409,
is an internal code that in-dicates the job was firstdiscussed in September2014, said JVA principalA.J. Stokes.
He said he didn’t knowwhether the company hadworked for the PAC, butthat the firmhandledbothkinds of clients, legally.
The 28th House Dis-trict race has divided theHamilton County Repub-lican Party. Some Repub-licans have come outagainst Dever after hishard-fought primary vic-tory over Blue Ash CityCouncilman Rick Bryan.
“As Republicans andIndependents in the dis-trict continue to abandonhis Tea Party-backedcampaign, and as he hasfailed to land the endorse-ment of any major group,Dever has called on hisColumbus puppet-mas-ters to help him spreadmore lies,” said EmmaDrongowski, deputy cam-paign manager for Kam-rass.
The Kamrass cam-paign sent out statementsfrom Bryan and Blue AshMayor Lee Czerwonka,denouncing Dever. At thepress conference, Deverdenounced ads sent on be-half of Kamrass as illegalcampaign activity.
“I believe the voters ofthe 28th deserve the truthbefore they cast their bal-lots in two weeks,” Deversaid.
Ads mailed by the Co-alition for Ohio’s Futuretie Dever to criminals’ es-cape attempts, saying“Dever’s plan doesn’t sup-port Ohio’s prisons.”
That notion appears tocome from Republicans’tax cuts and Dever’s sup-port for Gov. John Kas-ich’s proposal to eliminatethe state income tax. Kas-ich’s plan came with sug-gested expansions of oth-er taxes to make up for
some of the cuts in reve-nue. Another mailer fromKamrass depicts Deverholding a rifle and callshim an “extremist.”
State Rep. Matt Huff-man,R-Lima, chairmanofthe House Republicans’re-election committee,said the Democrats wereusing scare tactics.
“When the source orthe object of your cam-paign is to scare the pub-lic into believing that thisnice guy and his nice wifeand his nice family arereally outrageous people,those are the kind ofthings think we need to
bring to the public,” hesaid at Dever’s press con-ference.
Republicans have alsorun questionable ads insupport of Dever’s cam-paign.They suggestKam-rass celebrates voterfraudbecause hewaspre-sent at a 400-person vot-ing rights rally wherefraudulent voter Melo-wese Richardson wascalled to the stage for a“welcome home” and ahug from the Rev. AlSharpton. Some Demo-crats at the rally decriedHilton’s decision to recog-nize Richardson.

Sharon Greene knows thepower of teamwork.
As the sponsor of the Recy-cling Club at Winton Woods In-termediate School, Greene haswatchedall yearasherstudentshave worked at lunchtime tocollect snackbags, drinkpouch-esandLunchablecontainers forrecycling. She’s overseen thestudents’ efforts to keep itemsout of landfills by removingmilk cartons, water bottles andjuice containers that are co-mingled with other trash.
Most recently she helped tocoordinate the district- andcommunity-wide effort to col-lect aluminum cans as part of afundraiser for St. Jude’s Chil-dren’s Research Hospital.
“This fundraiser has beentransformed into a caring andsharing project for our commu-nity,” Greene said.
The can collection took placefrom March 10-April 17. TheForest Park Kroger and Brent-woodBowl in SpringfieldTown-
ship partnered with the stu-dents’ recycling efforts by set-ting up collection sites at theirbusinesses and donating cans.
The Cincinnati Alumnae Chap-ter of Delta Sigma Theta Soror-ity also donated cans. Efforts inthe districtwere led by organiz-
ers Lisa Barclay at WintonWoods Primary North, LoisMinton at Winton Woods Ele-mentary School and EileenMannira for the Winton WoodsCommunity PTA.
“Our goal and prayer was tohelpasickchildandourplanet,”Greene said. “We transported18,676cans to the recyclingcen-ter on Earth Day, April 22. Thatmeans 18,676 aluminum canswerekeptoutof the landfill, and$341.30 was earned.”

Before Princeton.Before Roger Bacon and
Wyoming and Badin andMasonand McNicholas and the dynas-ty that wasMount Notre Dame.
Before they all won Ohiogirlsbasketball statechampion-ships, there was a team from aschool that sort of no longer ex-ists – at least in name – that setthe standard.
Thirty years ago this month,the Forest Park Chargers werepreparing for a season with astatus previously unknown byany Greater Cincinnati team.
Defending. State. Champi-ons.
Coach Mark Ehlen’s Char-gers were coming off what, upto then, was the most remark-able season in the then-shorthistory of high school girls’ bas-ketball. No local team on any ofthe Ohio High School AthleticAssociation’s three levels –classes AAA, AA and A – hadwon a state championship in theeight seasons since the OHSAAlaunched a tournament in 1976.
The1983-1984Chargers–pri-marily, seniors Nina Fields, Ni-sey Gordon and Cheryl Lackeyand juniors Alesia Davis andGaby Downey – decisivelyblazed a new trail, going 28-0and turning into reality the po-tential Ehlen had been hearingabout for years.
“That was all I’d thoughtabout since (the seniors) weresophomores,” said Ehlen, affec-tionately known as “E-dog” tohisplayers thenandnowXavierwomen’s basketball director ofbasketball performance. “I hada couple of friends who werecollege coaches and hadrecruited my players who hadtoldme thatwewereas talentedas anybody in the state. Thatwas like a slap in the face forme. I started thinking, ‘Let’s dothis.’ It was like they planted aseed inmymind, andIplanted itin their minds.”
The seed took a while togrow. Forest Park went 15-5 inthe 1982-1983 season. The Char-gers seemed to be on their waythenextseason,goingundefeat-
ed in the regular season on theirway to the Hamilton CountySuburban LeagueAmericanDi-vision championship – the pro-gram’s first conference title –but they were upset by Syca-more, 44-40, in thedistrict semi-finals.
Fields, the 5-foot-5 pointguard, doesn’t recall any senseamong the seniors that theywere running out of time.
“There was no desperation,”said Fields, now Dr. Nina Gra-ham, an academic data coach inthe Decatur County (Georgia)school district.
Ehlen arranged a summertrip to a basketball camp in thePoconos, which ended up doingasmuchfor the teambondingasit did for the basketball, eventhough the girls originallyweredubious of the rustic setting.
“Itwas an outdoor camp, andwewere kind of city girls,” saidthe 6-foot Downey, who nowteaches and coaches ninth-grade basketball in the Milforddistrict.
Ehlen recalled, “I rememberCheryl Lackey saying, ‘Dang,coach, I could’ve gone to Mi-ami’s camp.’ ”
Forest Park opened the sea-son with a 68-28 win at North-west.TheChargers’closestreg-ular-seasonwinwas 50-47 atCo-lumbus Watterson – whichwould reach the AAA statesemifinals –rightbeforeChrist-mas in the Red Roof Classic inColumbus, a trip that also in-cludeda71-61winovereventualClassAstate-championNewarkCatholic.
“Markhad set us up to have aharderschedule togetreadyforthe tournament,” Downey said.
The Chargers had some un-finished business first. Downeyrecalls Forest Park schedulingSycamore – the team thatknocked them out of the previ-ous season’s tournament – forSenior Night. Lackey scorednine points in the first quarterwhile the Chargers were jump-ing out to a 26-4 lead theylengthened to 54-13 by halftimebefore settling for an 84-45win.
Downey insists, however,that revenge wasn’t a factor.
“It wasn’t like we wanted to
pound them,” she said, thoughEhlen admitted to saying “44-40” during the final pre-gamehuddle.
That matter taken care of,Forest Park was ready to focuson the postseason. The Char-gers cruised through the dis-trict tournament at Middle-town, winning their first fourgames by an average of 27.5points.
They also could see theirpath clearing. On the samenight theybeatHamiltonfor thedistrict championship, theirprimary challengers in the re-gion – Withrow and SpringfieldSouth – were upset.
Forest Park sailed through,
beating Sidney by five andHughes by 14 in the regionaltournament to earn a berth inthe state semifinals againstMentor Lake Catholic at OhioState University’s St. John Are-na. Downey scored 20 points tolead the Chargers to a 54-29winthat setup thenextnight’s state-championship matchup withthe CantonMcKinley Bulldogs.
The game was televised on astatewide network with Colum-bus-area broadcaster JimmyCrum and Cincinnati’s AndyMacWilliams behind the micro-phones, though not without is-sues.MacWilliams’microphonetwice went out on him.
McKinley rushed to an 8-0
lead before Downey connectedon one of her patented mid-rangeturnaroundjumpers.For-est Park trailed for the first28:17 of the 32-minute game,and didn’t lead until Downeytied up CantonMcKinley’s Mal-loryMartin at theBulldogs’ endto forcea jumpball,whichDow-neywon, then drew a foul at theother end and sank both freethrows for a 39-37 leadwith1:59left in the game.
On her way to being namedtournament Most ValuablePlayer, Downey also gave For-est Park the lead for good in thethree-minute overtime with an-other turnaround jumper with1:50 to play. She finished withanother 20 points in the Char-gers’ 44-41win.
Amazingly, Ehlen never sub-stituted in the title game. Thefive starters played all 35 min-utes.
Downey was named the En-quirer’s girls basketball Playerof the Year – in the cover photoof the Sports front page, she’sstanding and leaning with herleft arm on boys’ Player of theYear Byron Larkin’s left shoul-der, the two apparently sharingan inside joke–but itwas the5-9Davis who was more recog-nized around the state, beingnamed first team by UnitedPress International and secondteam by the Associated Press.
That was the result of ForestPark’s balance, Downey said.
The school name is history,like the teamnickname, victimsof merging with GreenhillsHigh School in the 1990s. Theywon the championship of aleague that no longer exists.Da-vis was named first-team all-state by a wire service that hasgone out of business.
Perhaps the most jarring de-velopment? The district is try-ing to raise money to build anew high school. The gymwhere Gaby and Alesia and Ni-sey and Cheryl and Nina and E-dog sweated through so manypractices and won so manygames might soon be gone.
“It was such a great thrill tobe Cincinnati’s first,” Ehlensaid. “That’s one thing thatsticks with me.”

FINNEYTOWN — FinneytownHigh School’s cross countryteam is more than a group ofdistance runners. They’re afamily.
Some are true relatives, likesixth-yearcoachRichJonesandhis freshmandaughter,McKen-zie. There’s also twopairs of sis-ters: Katherine and Sarah Ger-mann,AlexiaandArianaBonds.
They’ve all become a family.The reason is simple: Runningis hard. What makes it easier?Having people you can dependon, who help you through it.
“Family is a goodword,” said
Rich Jones. “They’re fantastickids, the type of kids you wantyour kids to be around.”
This Finneytown family canrun. The girls’ team finishedsecond at the Division III dis-trict meet Oct. 18 at Voice ofAmerica Park and qualified fortheregionalmeet for thesecondyear in a row. The top fourteams and top 16 individualsqualify for regionals.
Freshman Julia Brugge-meyer finished sixth (21:06.09)at thedistrictmeet, andMcKen-zie finished eighth (21:19.58).
Jones said that Julia andMcKenzie are like twins. “Theyjoke about being alpha and betaand who’s gonna beat who,”
Jones said.Junior Katherine Germann
ran10th (21:27.82) at the districtmeet, followed by senior cap-tain Corinne Saul in 12th(21:35.82). Perhaps what makesthis teamsogood is that theyun-derstand what it takes to be adistance runner.
“It takes somebody with asense of confidence and humil-ity; someone that isn’t afraid tohurt,” said Jones.
Jones, who qualified for theBoston Marathon this yearalongside friend and WyomingHigh School coach Travis Glen-denning, went on to say that in arace there’s always the “mo-ment of truth.” It’s a moment
when a runner decides to go forit. Cross country is a humblingsport. Some days you have itandsomeyoudon’t. Finneytowndeals with that by being therefor each other.
Finneytown’s boys’ team fin-ished sixth, and only one runnerqualified individuallyfor there-gionalmeet.When senior JacobHeinold finished ninth(17:10.47) at districts, hewas ex-hausted. But, Jones said, Hei-nold finished and as soon as hedid, he turned around and ranback onto the course to see histeammates.
“Mybiggest roleasacoach isto let the kids know that I be-lieve in them,” Jones said.

As the election approaches,there is a lot of talk about the
economy andjob creation.Unfortunately,a lot of it is justthat – talk.
In a recentcolumn in thispaper, my op-ponent spent alot of time talk-ing about a so-called biparti-san jobs groupthat he would
form to talk about job creation.What he doesn’t talk about – anysubstantive proposals to actual-
ly create jobs.Here is what I think we
should actually do to spur jobcreation.
Because small businessesare the backbone of our econo-my, employing more than halfof theU.S.workforce and creat-ing seven out of every 10 newjobs, they must be the focus ofour efforts.
As small business owners inthis community and across thecountry have toldme, the key tojob creation is removing the ob-stacles that prevent their busi-nesses from growing and add-ing employees.
The first obstacle we must
address is the difficulty manysmall businesses have access-ing capital. I have introducedseveral proposals that wouldhelp, at no cost to taxpayers, in-crease the flow of much-need-ed, private capital into smallbusinesses, thereby allowingthem to expand operations andhiring.
Next,weshouldhelpease theregulatory burden on smallbusinesses. Given their limitedresources, it is particularly dif-ficult for small businesses tonavigate the labyrinth of bur-densome regulations comingout of Washington.
To address this growing bur-
den, the House has passed sev-eral bipartisan reforms to therule-making process, includinga proposal to require federalagencies to seek regulatory al-ternatives that are less costlyfor smaller companies.
We should work to expandtrade opportunities for smallfirms. Due to the complexmazeof trade rules and regulationsboth foreign and domestic, lessthan one percent of small busi-nesses actively export theirproducts.
To help boost small businessexports, I have proposedstreamlining the complicatedexport process and providing
small businesses access to thetools they need to sell theirproducts abroad.
Simply put, more exportsmean more jobs.
These common-sense, bipar-tisan proposals will help pro-vide small businesses the capi-tal and resources they need togrow, expand and create jobs. Iam hopeful that after the elec-tion, we will finally have a Sen-ate that is willing to work withtheHouse toenact thesecriticalreforms.

Ourmission tohelpasmanypeople inourcommunityaswecan is now at serious risk. TheCityofCincinnati,whowecon-sider a supportive partner, hasrecommended a reduction onPWC’s budget. Recent actionby City Council and theMayorhas restored some of the rec-ommended reduction. For thiswe are appreciative.
However, PWC is so effec-tive in maximizing every dol-lar, I believe the fundingneedsto be restored in full. The or-ganization is ranked in the
highest category by the Com-munity Development Adviso-ry Board and is amodel for or-ganizations around the coun-try.
For every dollar the City al-locates to PWC, PWC turns itinto $3 by creatively securingmatching gifts and grants. Inturn, the loss of every dollar isactually a loss of $3 to thePWCbudget. Continuing full finan-cial support of PWC is such awise investment by Cincinnatiin Cincinnati and a wise use ofthe taxpayer dollars.
I amasking our city leadersto reconsider cuts to PWC andto restoreall funding to this ef-fective and efficient organiza-tion. The city’s return on in-vestment with PWC is signifi-cant but the impact of PWC’swork in our Cincinnati neigh-borhoods and families is fargreater.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Oct. 22 questionTwo women were killed when
hit by a vehicle while walkingalong Old Colerain Avenue andEastMiami River Roadearlier thismonth. What precautions do youtake whenwalking?
“Walk/run facing traffic –and step aside when you seetraffic coming.Wear bright col-ored clothing (even reflectiveclothing) to assure you are easi-ly seen by oncoming vehicles.”
“When walking along anyroadway I always, always, al-ways walk on the left sideagainst traffic. At least thatwillgivemea fighting chance to seeif someone in a car is driftingonto the shoulder and right to-ward me. If a person is walkingon the right side of the road, theonly warning they have of im-minent death or maiming is thefateful and oh-so-painful feel ofmetal on skin and bones. Whenwalking in or near an activeroadway I assume that I am in-visible to the car and take thepersonal responsibility to getout of their way. If it is dark ordusk I wear reflective clothingor a vest. I also keep in the fore-front of my brain the simplefact that in a car vs. pedestriancontest, the car (or truck) willalways win.”
“I really like towalk and con-sider it aperfectnon-damaging,low cost, exercise. After leav-ing a job that provided me withthe opportunity to frequentlytake very long walks in newplaces, I tried several ways touse our public roadways andsidewalks to seeAnderson froma new perspective. Now, I havea volunteer position that cankeep me on my feet for hours,
and, so far, help me keep those‘unemployment inches’ fromrequiring a new wardrobe.
“I don’t know what time ofday this took place, but obvious-ly, if it was at night, we have allseen pedestrians who seemclueless when it comes to wear-inghighlyvisible clothing or re-flective belts if walking atnight.Walking on the side of theroad, facing traffic, in mostcasesallowsthewalkertodeter-mine an oncoming threat. Ihaven’t mastered selectingroutesatall timeswithoutsharpbends in the road, but am extracautious if there is not enoughside area to allow me to moveout of the way, on the side uponwhich I am walking. In Ander-son Township, many of our sub-division streets have sidewalks,for which we homeowners payextra taxes. I have a questionfor all those who seem to feelthat walking in the street, evenwhen there are sidewalks, issomehow a pedestrian preroga-tive. Why?
“By the way, as winter ap-proaches, walking before side-walks are cleaned, or using theplowed streets because some-one hasn’t cleaned their side-walk, is a really goodway to puta driver in an awkward and un-desired position in already haz-ardous driving conditions.”
“I walk a lot but I alwayswalk in daylight facing oncom-ing traffic. I move off the roadwhen a car approaches. I preferto walk on side streets wherethere are sidewalks. Walking atdusk or later scares me. Thereseems to be more cars (rushhour) and faster drivers at thattime of day. Go figure!”
Oct. 15 questionWhat is your favorite local
Haunted House or Halloween dis-play? What do you like about it?
“In 1970 the nation’s veryfirstHalloweenHauntedHouseappeared in Cincinnati. TheSycamore-Deer Park Jayceesin conjunction with old radiostation WSAI were responsiblefor it.DennyMcKeown, thegar-denexpert,wasthemastermindof the project. He asked mybrotherand I tohelphimwith it.
“Mybrotherwas a teacher atElder and supplied most of theghoulies and ghosties thatbumped through the housewithhis students.
“I helped with the variousghastly exhibits and went on todesign many of the next 13houses. Theymade a lot ofmon-ey for the charities they sup-ported.
“But othersweregetting intothe haunting business. A lot ofcharitable institutions were in-terested in the phenomenalprofits.
“Denny and I became in-volved with the Bob HopeHouse, but the very best WSAIHaunted House was the one atthe Dolly Cohen Mansion onVictory Parkway. It was spec-tacular and my favorite.”Roy Hotchkiss, Price Hill Historical
THIS WEEK’SQUESTIONSDid you or will you vote earlythis year, or will you wait untilElection Day? Why?
Every week we ask readers a questionthey can reply to via email. Send youranswers to h[emailprotected] with [emailprotected] in thesubject line.
In last week’s paper, my op-ponentTedWinklerbelittledmy
life’s work, so,let me set therecordstraight.
As mayor, Ifocused onhelping neigh-borhoods solveproblems andimproving ourquality of life.
As Con-gressman, I fo-cused on con-
stituentwork,helpingtofindso-lutions for citizens who werefrustrated in theirdealingswiththe federal government.
As an attorney I representedclients at every level of the judi-ciary, arriving at outcomes thatsatisfied my clients and ourcommunity. My experience inpublic service has indeed beendiverse, and it’s exactly thekindof experience that the ProbateCourt needs.
As I shook hands with votersacross the county at church fes-tivals, parades, and flea mar-kets people shared with metheir experiences at criticaljunctures in their lives, con-firming my belief that the Pro-bateCourt isaplacewhere Icanmake a difference.
I heard people open up abouthow they feel helpless to stop
the downward spiral of an adultchild orbrotheror sister suffer-ing with mental illness or sub-stance abuse, fearing that thetroubled family member wouldspend a lifetime in and out oftrouble with the law, homelesson the streets, or worse.
Young couples told me abouttheir protracted struggles toadopt a child, at times finding itdifficult not to be discouragedby bureaucratic red tape, won-dering how a child they want tolove as their own is still nottheirs. People told me how con-fusing it is to probate a de-ceased parent’s estate whilestill grieving for their loss.
What all thesepeople toldme
was further proof of what I al-readyknowasanattorney– thatthe Probate Court is truly a cra-dle to grave court where peoplecome for help.
Unlike other courts wherepeople are brought to answercriminal charges or where civildisputes over money are re-solved, the Probate Court iswhere people come for help onthemost personal and sensitiveof matters.
I believe the Probate Judgecan and should advocate forfamilies in time of crisis. And tohelp citizens, I have proposed aProbate Academy to be held atsenior citizen centers and otherlocations throughout the county
where people can come to learnabout wills, the steps of estateadministration, the adoptionprocess, and other importantaspects of the court.
One thing this campaign hasmade clear is that the most im-portant role of the ProbateCourt Judge is to help others.I’m asking for your support be-cause togetherwe canmake theProbate Court even more help-ful to our families, and to thou-sands of our fellow citizens.That’swhyIaskforyourvoteonTuesday.

I had nuts left overfrom making caramel ap-ples so I decided to makesome peanut brittle. Pea-
nut brittlecan be atrickycandy tomake, andsome ofmyrecipes callfor a candythermom-eter alongwith thead-dition ofbaking so-
da, neither of which thisrecipe requires. I will tellyou that this peanut brit-tle doesn’t have the“snap”andsomewhatairytexture of traditional brit-tle. Regardless, it’s sooogood.
I’m thinking I shouldhave waited until the holi-days to share since itmakes a fabulous giftfrom the kitchen. But youknowme, if I make some-thing that is awesomelygood, I can hardly wait toshare. Make this now andsave the recipe to makeduring the holidays. Be-tcha can’t eat just onepiece!
Chock full of nuts. Ifyou want more of brittle,use less nuts. Adaptedfrom Melanie Barnard’srecipe. As Melanie toldme “follow directions anditworksevery time.” If allyouhave in the frig is salt-ed butter, that’sOK touse.
1/2 stick unsalted but-ter
1/2 cup sugar2 tablespoons corn
syrup - I’ve used bothlightanddarkandpreferdark
1 teaspoon vanilla2 cups salted mixed
nuts or peanutsLine cookie sheet with
foil and spray it. Stir but-ter, sugar and corn syrup
in pan over medium heatuntil sugarmelts andmix-turebubbles andbecomessmooth. Cover and cookfor a minute. Stir in vanil-la and nuts and cook, stir-ring constantly, until nutsare fragrant and goldenbrown, about 5 minutes.Don’t overcook. Pour ontofoil, spreading thin. Cooland break apart. Store,tightly covered, at roomtemperature up to aweek.
Baked potatoeswith cheese saucelike Wendy’s
For the reader whowants to avoid buyingthese through Wendy’sdrive thru. Homemade isalways better! Here’s acheesesauce that’s sover-satile. It’s good on brocco-li and other veggies, too.Sometimes I’ll whisk in asquirt of Dijon or drymustard with the milkmixture. Sharp or mildcheddar work equallywell.
And here’s a question Iget asked a lot: can youuse any kind of potatoesfor baking? Well, yes, butthe true baking potatoes,like Idaho, have morestarch in them and bakeup drier and fluffy. Andthey’re really the best, Ithink, for mashed pota-toes. Others, like red, willbake upmore “waxy” andfirm. My take on it? Thebakers are best, but if allyou have are red or other
kinds, go for it.4 nice sized baked po-
tatoes2 Tablespoons butter2 Tablespoons flourSalt & pepper1 cupmilk1-1/2 cups shredded
cheddarMelt butter in pan over
medium heat. Add flourandwhisk for oneminute.Slowly whisk in milk andwhisk until thickened,about 5 minutes. Removefrom heat and stir incheese until smooth. Addsalt and pepper to taste.
Make a lengthwisesplit in potatoes. Smooshup at both ends to openand fluff up. Pour cheesesauce over.
Tip from Rita’skitchen: Broccoliand cheese stuffedpotatoes
Steam some broccoliflorets and add beforepouring on cheese.

When buying a newcar is it a good idea toimmediately buy an ex-tended service warranty?Many people do that, butif you do, you have to bevery careful about justwhat you are buying.
When John Scudder, ofHillsboro, bought a newcar a few years ago hesaid he didn’t think twicewhen asked about buyingan extended service war-ranty. “She asked, ‘Doyou want a 60,000-milewarranty?’ I said, ‘OK,sure,’ ” Scudder said.
It was only later thathe asked about the par-ticular warranty hebought and found it wasfrom an independentcompany, not from thevehicle manufacturer.Scudder said he ran intoproblems when he tookhis car into another deal-
er andshowed hiswarranty.
“Hesaid, “Wedon’t ac-cept it.’ Iwent to mymechanicand hedoesn’taccept it.
Then he went to anothermechanic – but no oneaccepted it,” Scuddersaid.
The dealer who soldhim the policy said therewas no problem, that heshould bring the car backto them.
“He said, ‘If youbrought the car backhere we would have ac-cepted it.’ But, what ifI’m in Florida? Mydaughter is a doctordown there. I would haveto tow it back 2,000 milesand it just doesn’t makesense,” Scudder said.
Scudder paid $2,200for the warranty and saidhe now realizes he shouldhave bought the manu-facturer’s extended ser-vice warranty instead.
“If it was a Hondawarranty they wouldcover it. I didn’t need touse it because myHondaran great. But they saidbecause it’s not a Hondawarranty they won’t eventalk with you.” Scuddersaid.
Consumer Reports hasfound most readers spentmore on their warrantythan they saved in re-pairs. But if you stillwant to buy a warrantyyou don’t have to do soimmediately. You canwait until just before theoriginal warranty ex-pires to buy the extendedwarranty.
If you wait you’ll knowwhether you really wantto keep the car. But beadvised, you will prob-ably have to pay more forthe extended warranty atthat point.
