Today Bright delivers amessage of hope and healingthrough her book ThriverSoup and speaking to groups.This is the third traditionallypublished book by the Milfordauthor.

Don Chandler can remem-ber walking in Milfords Me-morial Day parade with hisgrandfather in the 1950s, whenhe was in grade school.
So hes sad that other chil-dren wont get that experiencethis year - and maybe not afterthat, either.
For the first time in at least60 years, American LegionVictor Stier Post 450 in Milfordwill not sponsor a MemorialDay parade.
Weve been talking aboutthis for a couple of years nowas more of our members getolder, and we just dont have
the younger people or a colorguard to do this anymore, saidPost Adjunct Chandler, whoserved from 1969 to 1971 in theU.S. Navy.
Community participationalso is dropping, he said.
We get the Boy Scouts andthe Girl Scouts and thats aboutall, Chandler said.

Chandler said hedoesnt know how manyyears American LegionVictor Stier Post 450 hasbeen sponsoring the Me-morial Day parade in Mil-ford.
The bad part aboutthis is that there arentany guys around who cananswer that question any-more, Chandler said.
They were all WorldWar I and World War IIguys and almost all of
them are gone.Ive been involved in
the last 60 years exceptfor two years when I wasin the service, Chandlersaid.
Chandler said Ameri-can Legion Victor StierPost 450 plans to concen-trate its efforts on othercommunity-service pro-jects.
Milford Mayor LaurieHowland said it is under-standable that the Ameri-can Legion post is bowingout of the Memorial Dayparade this year.
The parade and thedesire for the communityto honor those who havemade the ultimate sacri-fice is a well-honored tra-dition in the city. Unfortu-nately, such events take alot of support and volun-teers to pull off, How-land said.
Too often such eventsand the effort behindthem are not fully real-ized till they no longerhappen. The parade is anexample of the ideology
that it takes a community.Hopefully, moving
forward the communitycan find another way topay tribute to the men andwomen who gave theirlives for our country,Howland said.
The redevelopment ofMemorial Park is one wayto show that respect.
Milford won a $69,000federal grant to upgradeMemorial Park and plansto use some of the moneyto build five granite mon-uments honoring veter-ans on a landscaped plazathere.
The city also will usethe community develop-ment block grant fundsfor improvements that in-clude providing accessfor disabled people to thepark and a walkway fromthe plaza to RiversidePark on Water Street nearAmerican Legion VictorStier Post 450.

asked if they even heardof this diagnosis. Zerohands went up whenasked if they knew ofanybody diagnosed.
I have only heard ofone person in the entireworld who had the samediagnosis, Bright said.I heard of her early on.I have no idea where sheis, or if shes even stillaround.
Rather than chasethat down, Bright util-ized her energy for herown survival. The firstoncologist she saw of-fered only one para-graph of information hefound online. Her sisterworks for the FDA andhad connections withinthat organization and theNational Cancer In-stitute. She called on allher friends.
She got me in touchwith the best uterinesarcoma doctors in theworld, said Bright.
That led her to M.D.Anderson Cancer Centerin Houston, where theywanted her to stay fortreatments. A wife andmother of two boys, 11and 13, living in Love-land was not going toHouston for treatments.Next was MemorialSloan Kettering in NewYork City. Again, theywanted her there for the
treatments. Her sisterfound the Sarcoma Alli-ance. Dr. Larry Copelandof Ohio State was a high-ly recommended mem-ber of the alliance.
We decided to gothere, Bright said. Wemet him and we bothagreed he was the rightperson for me.
Between the Julydiagnosis and the scanfor the chemo treat-ments, she went fromone metastatic nodule inher lung, to four. Shewas already doing lots ofalternative treatmentsincluding affirmations,visualizations, praying,and people praying forher; everything sheknew about and a strictdiet. A blood drawshowed her albumen (ameasure of nutritionalstatus) to be 4.2. Above3.5 is good, below 2.5 isusually a poor prognosisfor someone with cancer.
I already had a verygood nutritional statusand here I was withend-stage cancer, shesaid. So I knew diet wasnot going to save mylife.
Bright says it abso-lutely did contribute toher healing and survival,but not without medicaltreatment. She went upto Columbus for chemotreatments every twoweeks for 16 treatments.After that round of che-mo, there was still onetumor growing. Shebegan a new differenttype of chemo treatmentwhich lasted eight
months. The remainingtumor died, but a newtumor was growing. Shedecided to have it surgi-cally removed and test-ed.
She had the lung sur-gery, followed by chemo-therapy, which requiredthree to five-day hospitalstays every three weeks.Copeland referred her toDr. James Pavelka at St.Elizabeth in Edgewood,Kentucky, so she couldstay closer to home.After six treatments ascan showed a one-halfinch nodule on the pul-monary vein right nextto her heart.
Despite concerns ofher oncologist, the sur-geon who performed herlung surgery was confi-dent of success. In themidst of all that, Brightand her husband agreedtheir marriage was over.She moved out, stayed
with friends and evenslept on floors. Fiveweeks later she had thesurgery. The tumor hadalready grown from ahalf-inch to 2 1/2 inches.Bright did not want toknow the prognosis.
They didnt tell me,but it was pretty clearthat I was in trouble,Bright said. There wereseveral times when Iprepared to die. Thestuff was growing, whatcould I do?
Six weeks later, at apost-op meeting, she wastold how big the tumorhad been and to get backon chemo. With no che-mo options left, Brightwas told get ready forhospice.
My next scan wasclean, Bright said. Itwas 25 months from thetime I was diagnosed tothe surgery. Threemonths later I had a scanand it was clean.
Throughout those twoyears Bright had beenwriting on a CaringBridge blog created forher at the beginning.People who read it en-couraged her to write abook. Learning all alongthe way, she had greatsupport and personaldetermination to sur-vive. A book sharing herrecipe for survival andhealing is the naturaloutgrowth from herexperience.
It was seven years ofhell, she said. I feellike Im on the other sidenow.
The other side has
revealed a will to sharehope, healing and sur-vival. Bright saidThriver Soup willteach the ABCs atti-tudes, behavior, andchoices for readers tolearn there is hope. Thebook offers tested tips toreduce the impact ofchemotherapy, get out ofthe hospital earlier, re-cover faster, managefear, relieve stress, andavoid scams. Her book isfilled with a message ofhealing and hope forthose trying to survivecancer.
I like being alive,she said. Im just get-ting started. Ive got toget this out there. I wantto give people strengthand hope.

When it comes to raisingfunds for local teens, SoutheastCincinnati Young Life puts on aBeast of an event.
The Beast of the East Forkadventure race returns to EastFork State Park Saturday, June4, for its second year. The 5Kcourse takes participants on aseries of natural and man-madeobstacles. This years eventpromises to be bigger and bet-ter, race and Young Life Direc-tor Shawn Kuhn said.
The 5K is Kuhns brainchild.He was looking for a way toraise funds to help send theYoung Life teen members tosummer camp.
Young Life is what we call aparachurch ministry, Kuhnsaid. Its similar to Fellowshipof Christian Athletes, or Cam-pus Crusade, those types of or-ganizations.
Its not directly affiliatedwith any specific church or or-ganization. Because its a Chris-tian organization, it has no offi-cial affiliation with publicschools. Its a peer-to-peergroup with meetings held in thehomes of the student members.
Young Life locally servesstudents in Forest Hills, WestClermont, New Richmond andBatavia schools. Volunteers in-vest hundreds of hours annuallybefriending and mentoringteens. The big event each yearis a one week trip to one ofYoung Lifes summer campproperties.
The last four years SoutheastCincinnati Young Life has allo-cated $60,000 to assist 350 localstudents cover the cost of camp.Part of Kuhns job, in addition tobeing the Young Life leader forAnderson High School students,is to raise funds to support thecamp and other Young Life pro-
grams. In past years, the major-ity of the money used to sendkids to camp was from the oper-ating budget, money Kuhnraised throughout the year.
The Beast event is an effortto establish a fund raiser where100 percent of the profits areused to send the students to oneof Young Lifes many summercamps.
We had a really greatevent, Kuhn said of the Beastsinaugural year. About 175 peo-ple ran last year. I was pleasant-ly surprised by that. With regis-tration and corporate sponsors,we netted $6,000 toward sum-mer camp. So this year we arehoping for more runners. Ourgoal is to have 250 to run thisyear.
With an increase in partici-pants and corporate sponsors,coupled with a decrease in over-head costs with many of the ob-
stacles constructed last year,Kuhn said hes hopeful of rais-ing $10,000 this year.
To raise that money, Kuhnsaid he and his fellow YoungLife members are working hardto deliver an event that appealsto a variety of people, from ath-letes looking for a challenge tofamilies looking for a fun out-ing.
For hardcore athletes whowant to get their 5K time, therewill be a chipped timing option.
To help make the event morefamily-friendly, a Little Beastobstacle course was added. Forchildren from around ages 3 to9, the course will be completelyfree and provide small versionsof the big Beasts obstacles,
Were using it as a way tomake sure that our event is real-ly family oriented and inclu-sive, Kuhn said. Certainly I
want to attract a hardcore ath-lete who will run and find itchallenging. Were really tryingto create a course thats chal-lenging.
Last year there were partici-pants who finished the course in
20 minutes, and others whowent through as a family andmaybe took up to an hour.
When the race is over, theday continues with refresh-ments, raffle prizes, inflatablesand music.

The battle against drugabuse in Clermont Countygets a boost with the addi-tion of a few more pre-
scription drug dropoffboxes.
The Clermont CountyMental Health and Recov-ery Board received agrant from Interact forHealth in Cincinnati tobuy and install prescrip-
tion drug drop off boxes atthe Amelia Police Depart-ment, Loveland Police De-partment, Batavia Com-munity Pharmacy and Mi-ami Township Police De-partment, injuryprevention coordinator at
Clermont County PublicHealth Michelle Lyden-berg said. The new boxesare in place and are in ad-dition to previously avail-able prescription dropoffboxes in the Pierce Town-ship Police Department,
Clermont County Sher-iffs Department office,Goshen Police Depart-ment and the Village ofBethel Police Depart-ment.
The drop off boxes areone piece of a very largeplan the Opiate TaskForce has to address opi-ates, heroin and prescrip-tion drug abuse, Lyden-berg said.
We see this as onepiece of reducing the sup-ply, she said. For many,the path to heroin addic-tion can be traced back toprescription drug abuse.Some young people startwith prescription drugsthey find in the medicinecabinet at home or of fam-ily members.
By providing properdisposal locations for un-used prescription drugs,Clermont County is hop-ing to break this cycle. InClermont County, partici-pation in efforts to pro-vide residents with a wayto properly dispose of pre-scription drugs started in2010 with a Drug TakeBack Day. Participation
exceeded expectations,Clermont County MentalHealth and RecoveryBoard Executive DirectorKaren J. Scherra said.
It was amazing howmany came out, she said.The Drug Take Backevent held last Septemberresulted in nearly 200pounds of medications be-ing collected in ClermontCounty.
The first permanentdrop box was in PierceTownship at the Police De-partment and was in-stalled in June 2012,Scherra said. The one atthe Sheriffs Officeopened next.
The drug dropoff box-es are an important partof stopping young peoplebefore they start abusingprescription drugs, Ly-denberg said. They pro-vide a convenient way todispose of potentially ad-dictive and deadly drugskeeping them away fromchildren, out of the gar-bage, away from wildlifeand out of the water sup-ply.
Clermont adds moreprescription drug drop off sitesSheila A. Vilvenssvilvens@communitypress.com

Loveland EarlyChildhood Center
It was a science assemblythat went back in history...wayback in history.
Loveland EarlyChildhoodCenter students enjoyed TheDinosaur Diary Wednesday,May 4. The PTA-sponsoredevent was part of the annual Sci-ence Day.
The day was full of learningand hands-on experiments,Principal Kyle Bush said. Iwant to send out a huge thankyou to our PTA and the volun-teers who made this possible. Itwas fun for all.
Loveland High School Loveland High School is
proving that technology im-proves the teaching and learn-ing experience and allowsteachers and students to domore inside and outside of theclassroom.
With the 2015-2016 schoolyear, Loveland High School re-fined its bring your own de-vice structure as it evolves intoa 1:1 learning environment fornext school year with manyteachers integrating technol-ogy into classroom instructionalmost daily, and students hav-ing the ability to take their de-vice outside the building tolearn.
The bottom line is that tech-nology allows teachers and stu-dents to do things in the class-room never before possiblefrom the teaching and learningperspective, said DavidKnapp, district director of tech-nology. Our continued growthand ability to access technologyallows teachers to focus on theindividual needs of each of ourstudents, and continue theteaching even when studentsleave the classroom.
The immediate feedbackthat Math XL delivers to the stu-dents has been extremely bene-ficial, teacher Katie Byrkettsaid. Students have tools with-in the program to give them im-mediate help and allows themthe practice they need to under-stand the math concepts.
Additionally, Google Sheetshave allowed my students toshare data and run basic statis-tics much quicker, which allowsthem more time to analyze thedata. It also offers a location tostore the data if we need it forthe next day. Google Classroomnot only allows students to col-laborate amongst themselves, italso allows me to manage andparticipate in the collaboration even to the point of recordingverbal feedback.
Screencasting, or recordingan audio presentation withscreenshots, has allowed me tobe present in the classroom,even when I am not, teacherJen Dell said. I know there arelots of videos available to stu-dents on different topics, but Ifeel like when they hear myvoice and know I am the one be-hind the screencasts, they aremore engaged in the lesson. Italso allows students to go backand revisit material at their ownpace.
Katie and Jen are teacherswho put student achievement atthe heart of their lessons, inno-vative instructional coach Bri-
an Conatser said. Each usesbest practice instructionalstrategies that challenge andencourage their students to ex-cel. By being an active partici-pant in each students educa-tion, Katie and Jen meet stu-dents where they are and em-bed engaging lessons utilizingtechnology to enhance thelearning process.
Loveland Schools The week of May 2-6 ad-
ministrators, staff, students,parents and volunteers showedtheir appreciation for Lovelandteachers during the annualTeacher Appreciation Week.
As a parent I truly appreci-ate the teachers who work withmy children each day, Love-land Superintendent Chad Hil-liker said. The time and pa-tience it takes to do what is bestfor students is no easy task, butit is very rewarding. I wouldlike to extend my appreciationto our teachers for their dedica-tion to our children.
Across the district, giftswere presented and messagesof thanks delivered often witha theme.
Loveland Primary Schoolfollowed the childrens book se-ries by Laura Nomeroff (authorof If You Give a Mouse a Cook-ie) and used a different bookeach day to say thank you.
We ended the festivities Fri-day with our annual PTA staffappreciation luncheon and de-livered individual, handwrittenthank you cards to the staff,Principal Kevin Fancher said.
At Loveland Early ChildhoodCenter, teachers discoveredtreats each day in the staff workroom, and enjoyed their PTAluncheon Thursday, May 12.
This is such a tremendousway to show appreciation forwhat our teachers do, Princi-pal Kyle Bush said. Parents do-nate gift cards so that each staffmember gets some sort ofprize to take home, in addition
to the very nice lunch. We reallyappreciate the show of supportfor our teachers; it is very muchdeserved.
Moeller High School The Art and Design De-
partment has been awarded$3.08 million in total collectivescholarship offers for 2016.
Its little wonder as the de-partments success in securingscholarships has been signifi-cant for more than a decade.
Archbishop Moeller HighSchool Art/Photography De-partment since 2002 has en-abled students on average toearn more than $2.5 million inscholarships annually. Gradu-ates are accepted into topranked art and design programsacross the country, said Jac-quelyn Sommer, departmentchair.
The Art/Photography andDesign Department has theability to work one on one withstudents continually craftingand developing a program thatpositions them to go into anycreative field. Current facultyhave received multiple honorsand awards in design and educa-tion, she said.
Department faculty holdboard positions with the ArtAcademy of Cincinnati (Jacque-lyn Sommer) and the Ohio ArtEducation Association (GregStanforth) .
There are 10 students in the2016 Advanced Placement Stu-dio Art and Design 4 class.
This is achieved by a com-mitment to the following:
Drawing: The foundation ofany program of excellence inthe visual arts.
Sketchbook: The most impor-tant tool of the visual artist -- thestudents visual diary.
The Elements of Art and thePrinciples of Design: The alpha-bet and grammar the struc-ture of the visual arts.
Verbal Communication: Stu-dents become conversant about
their own and the visual art ofothers. They will learn specificlanguage common to the artscommunity in order to carry onan intelligent and relevant con-versation with an art profes-sional.
Work ethic: Students becomedisciplined artists creatingworks of art that clearly reflecttheir thoughts, feelings and in-tentions.
The advanced placementstudio art and design course forseniors is designed for thosewho have completed all previ-ous studio art and designcourses and intend to pursue ca-reers in the field of art and de-sign, Stanforth said.

I know the older I get the fast-er time goes, but gosh, May is justflying by. Memorial Day is almosthere! Its a special day for me andmy family. We attend open air (ifweather permits) mass at St. Phi-lomena church, one of the oldestchurches in our county. We plantmy moms mint on her and mydads graves, and the kids help mearrange flowers. Its a meaningfultradition for sure.
Memorial day honors our fall-en soldiers and those others who havepassed, and many of us will celebrate theday as a kick-off to picnic season. Icouldnt wait to share these yummy reci-pes!
Readers dilemma solvedWhite cake from scratch that is light
textured like store bought. Reader AnnieHoffman, a talented and inquisitive bak-er, makes wedding cakes. Annie told me: For years I have searched for a scratchvanilla cake recipe that isnt the consis-
tency of corn bread, and has thatbouncy texture of a box mix, with-out using a box mix. Is there such athing? I have tried hundreds, yes,that many, to no avail. My cakebusiness is all scratch except forvanilla, people just like the mixbetter. Help if you can.

Worlds best slow cooker creamed corn
The slow cooker creamed corn is so popular that just about everyone wants tomake it. I first heard about it from my neighbor, Erin, who made it for a family gather-ing. It was so good, she said. Then my friend, Sue Marks, a Mount Washington readerand host of Food Thoughts, a radio show for the blind and visually impaired, sent methe recipe. After that, it went viral and you know the rest.
2-1/2 pounds frozen yellow corn1 cup whipping cream (you could also use half & half)8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature, chunked up1/2 cup shredded or grated Parmesan cheese6 tablespoons butter, room temperature, cut up1 tablespoon sugar or substituteSalt and pepper to taste
Spray slow cooker. Put cream, crew, cheese and butter in slow cooker and whiskuntil almost smooth. Stir in rest of ingredients. Cover and cook on low 4-5 hours, stirringoccasionally, or until mixture is smooth and creamy and corn is crisp tender.
Mississippi mud cake
For the Northern Kentucky reader who lost her recipe in a move. I want the recipe thats madefrom scratch. Its always the first dessert to disappear at our Memorial Day picnic, she said.
1 cup butter1/2 cup cocoa2 cups sugar4 large eggs, lightly beaten1-1/2 cups flour1 teaspoon vanilla1-1/2 cups chopped pecans4 cups mini marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350. Put butter and cocoa together and cook over low heat until butter melts.Transfer to mixing bowl. Add sugar and eggs, beat on medium until blended. Add flour and vanilla.Beat until blended. Stir in pecans. Spoon batter into sprayed 13x9 pan. Bake 35 minutes. Removefrom oven and immediately sprinkle marshmallows over hot cake. Then immediately spread frostingover the marshmallows. It will look bumpy. Cool and then chill before slicing.
Beat on medium speed until smooth, adding a bit more milk if too stiff:
1 pound confectioners sugar, sifted or put through a sieve to remove lumps1/2 cup milk1/2 cup cocoa4 tablespoons butter, softened
Everyone wants to make slow-cooker creamed corn
THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

A publication of
May 18 questionWhat is the significance of
Memorial Day to you?
Memorial Day is a feder-al holiday in the UnitedStates for remembering thepeople who died while serv-ing in the countrys armedforces. I think it should beextended to include thosewho lost their lives as fire-men and policemen. To me itis the unofficial beginning ofsummer, the end of theschool year and time topause and remember thosewho served this country andgave the ultimate sacrifice.Go Figure!
May 11 questionWhom should Donald
Trump and Hillary Clintonchoose as their runningmates? Why?
There are a number ofexperienced people whom Iwould have confidence in asvice president for DonaldTrump. I live in the hope thatthey will all be asked to takepositions of great impor-tance in order to quickly takethe necessary steps to re-store Americas economy,security, military strengthand respect on the worldstage. However, I keep re-turning to Dr. Ben Carson tobe the ideal choice for vicepresident because of his pas-sion for the best direction tobe taken for our country; hisability to quickly learn aboutand investigate issues, toconsider and seek the inputof experienced and qualifiedindividuals and proceed ac-
cordingly, and his affinitywith all people. Should mis-fortune befall the president ,Dr. Carson would, I am sure,have been totally involvedand current with all affairsand at the ready to summonthe best confidants and ad-visers for a safe, smoothpath forward.
I do not see anyone on thehorizon who would have anyinclination or guts to deviateor compromise from the lib-eral agenda of big govern-ment and control, or the Clin-ton/Obama agenda. There-fore, there is no way for meto make a Democratic vicepresidential choice. Besidesthat, the thought of HillaryClinton, with her longstand-ing, extensive history ofpoor judgment, lies andfeigned interest in the wel-fare of the American people,possibly making her way tothe presidency is not onlyfrightening but offensive fora great country that cameinto being based on opportu-nity, freedom, honor andbravery.
THIS WEEKSQUESTIONWhat is your all-time favoritemovie - the one that you willalways watch if you comeacross it while channel-surfing? Why do you like it?
Every week we ask readers aquestion they can reply to viaemail. Send your answers firstname.lastname@example.org Ch@troom in the subject line.
Recently, a residentdropped off an article for meto read. The article was fromTime magazine written byCharlotte Alter titled, WhyAmerica Needs More FemaleCops. It highlights the impor-tance and inclusion of womenin the New York Police Depart-ment.
I noted the article proudlystates, women make up 17percent of its (NYPD) forcecompared to the national aver-age of 12 percent. Many timeswe think of the large, urbandepartments as being the in-novators in law enforcement.However, your Loveland PoliceDepartment has a long tradi-tion of innovation, particularlyin hiring practices.
Officer Betty Rajewskijoined the Loveland Police
force as a fulltime policeofficer in 1974.In perspective,only 2 percentof all policeofficers werewomen in 1970(Female Offi-cers in theUnited States,Barbara Price,National In-
stitute of Justice.) By 1978,Officer Rajewski was assignedto the Hamilton County Homi-cide Task Force as an investi-gator. She went on to receivenumerous commendationsduring her distinguished ca-reer for outstanding workprior to her retirement.
We have carried on thisinnovative tradition. Today,
more than 22 percent of oursworn officers, and 30 percentof our total staff, are women.This is almost twice the nation-al average quoted in the arti-cle. LPD female officers areactive in bike patrol, fieldtraining, crime scene investi-gation, and more. I am proud tobelong to a department thathas worked hard to be as in-novative as possible and trulyrepresentative of the commu-nity we serve.
Incidentally, on May 24 at 7p.m. Officer Melba Schultz, aLoveland Citizen Police Acad-emy Alumni Association grad-uate and member, will besworn in before City Council.

What is the Large HadronCollider? Simply, it is a 17-milein circumference tunnel severalhundred feet below charmingSwiss and French towns, vil-lages, and countryside, a ringfilled with $5 billion of huge
magnets, detec-tors and com-puters used toacceleratebeams of pro-tons head-on ateach other toproduce sub-atomic parti-cles that arestudied bymore than10,000 scien-tists and phys-
icists from around the world.The scientists hope that their
studies of the interaction be-tween protons, neutrinos,quarks, leptons and bosons willprovide clues to the formationof the universe during the theo-rized Big Bang of 13.8 billionyears ago. One particle, theHiggs boson, named for phys-icist Peter Higgs who predictedit in 1964, was allegedly detect-ed in 2012 and is nicknamed theGod particle for its expectedability to explain phenomenaconnected with the universescreation.
Cost of discovery of theHiggs boson exceeded $13.25billion, according to Forbesmagazine.
Despite a large scientificstaff gleaned from more than
600 universities and operationalcosts exceeding $1 billion a year,listed accomplishments for theCERN (European Organizationfor Nuclear Research) facilityat Geneva since 1954 seem to befew and far between. The tourdocent explained how the Collid-er works, but focused mainly onhow the facility was built andequipped, not on meaningfuldiscoveries.
Joel Achenbach in NationalGeographic magazine (March2008) noted a fear that thecollider will fail to find thethings that physicists insistmust be lurking in the deepsubstrate of reality. Such a bigmachine needs to produce bigscience, big answers, somethingthat can generate a headline aswell as interesting particles.
CERN does claim that one ofits scientists designed the firstweb page for the Internet in1989.
Writing to his father in Geor-gia in April, 1945, an Americanmissionary serving as a captainin the U.S. Army in Chinamused about hoped-for life as afarmer after the war: I onlywant enough of science to en-able fruitful husbandry of theland with simple tools, a timefor leisure, and the guarding ofmy familys health. I do not careto be absorbed in the endlessexamining of force and spaceand matter, which I believe canonly slowly lead to God.
Ironically, four months lateratomic discoveries at the Man-
hattan Project brought theyoung captains war to an end.Perhaps peaceful cooperationbetween its 20 European mem-ber states (and Israel) will bethe only real accomplishment of
CERN despite lofty and expen-sive dreams. The word utopiameans nowhere after centu-ries of constant, senseless, andbloody warfare, cooperationbetween Europeans seems like
utopia. May the money not runout.

KENWOOD - Grant Mays was notable to attend the Centerville HighSchool scholar-athlete banquet Sunday.Considering the events of Saturday,the Elks lacrosse captain was fortu-nate to even make it to Sunday.
The senior midfielder appeared tomake a gutsy play shortly after half-time of a game at Moeller, where theElks trailed the Crusaders, 8-2. A Cru-sader shot on goal hit Mays on the leftside of his chest, below his heart. Oninstinct, he picked up the ground balland started running down field.
Then, he collapsed. Immediately,the referee stopped play.
We knew something was prettyserious right away, Moeller coachSean McGinnis said. They stopped thegame and got the medical personnelout there. Then, it took a turn for theworse as his rhythm was off.
Thats when the experience ofMoeller head trainer Craig Lindseyand head of security Rich Wallace paidoff. Lindsey had passed up a localtraining conference to preside overtwo events on Moellers back fields the lacrosse game and a rugby match.He also had the foresight to have anautomated external defibrillator(AED) on site with contact sports onadjacent fields.
When it appeared standard methodswere not going to be enough to reviveMays, University of Cincinnati internAshley Higginbotham ran off the side-lines and returned with the AED. For-tunately, a Centerville parent, MikeJones, an emergency medical tech-nician, was in the crowd, along with
Dr. Rob Hill from Florida, who was intown to watch his Moeller son, Griffin.
Total team effortAll hands were on deck, including
another Beacon Orthopaedics trainer,Josh Horner, from Princeton whomLindsey had procured with multipleevents on campus.
From the second Mays went down,this team of heroes sprung into action.
Eventually, they placed the devicespads on Grants chest and, after oneshock, he started breathing on his own.Not long after, Sycamore Townshipparamedics showed up and by the timeMays was in the ambulance, he wasstarting to stabilize. Wallace, an EMThimself and police chief of Amberley

BLUE ASH By mostaccounts, Ursuline sopho-more Emily Young has abright future in whichev-er sport she decides toplay.
In addition to turning inimpressive performanceson the softball diamond,she trades in her cleats forskates and carves up thecompetition on the icehockey rink. Last year, sheparticipated in the TeamUSA Hockey developmen-tal camp. This spring, sheled the Lions youth move-ment.
A lot of people ask mewhich one I am going topick for college, she said.Whatever opportunity Iget, Ill take. Right now, Iam happy playing bothand staying in shape.
Also, she was namedGirls Greater CatholicLeague player of the year.In a league with the likesof Ava Lawson, AubreyBrunst and Sydney Zeuch,thats no easy feat.
The 10th-grader had 46hits in 76 at-bats for a .605batting average, one homerun, 19 RBIs, 10 triples andsix doubles. She was alsoon base 62 percent of thetime and swiped 26 bags.
I wasnt expecting it atall, Young said of beingselected as the confer-ences best player. I justtry to play the game witheverything I have andtrust what I know. Iwouldnt be where I am to-day without the supportsystem I have behind me.
Young isnt the onlystellar sophomore on theteam. Sarah Mehrle, AbbyElliott, Lanie Berlage andRachael Schulte are just afew from that class whoproduced for the Lionsthis season.
Plenty of Lions shouldbe in the mix for all-GGCLteams.
We have a good sopho-more class, Ursulinecoach Missy Keith said.Were hoping they cancontinue to lead us in thedirection we want to go.
That direction includesnot only competing withtheir fellow teams in theGGCL, but also teamssuch as Mason, Lebanonand Lakota East. Teamscoach Keith called thestandard.
The Comets ousted theLions from the tourna-ment, 14-0 back on May 16.
Playing against a teamlike Mason, the girls get tosee where the standard isfor softball in our area,the coach said.
The Lions finished theseason 13-13.

THANKS TO CHRISTIE BELL
Ursuline sophomore EmilyYoung takes a cut at a goodpitch to hit.
Village, had placed the911 call earlier in theprocess.
Without the AED, itcould have gone the otherway, Lindsey said.Were so blessed that itdid its job. You take it topractice and games everysingle day, but I neverhad to use it in 21 years.
A rare occurrenceWhat occurred to
Mays was a conditioncalled commotio cordis.Its something Lindseyand all trainers learn incollege and is defined asa lethal disruption ofheart rhythm caused by adirect blow to the chestwhile the heart is in be-tween beats.
When that happens, itsends the heart into aquivering state, Lindseysaid. Its not beatingefficiently. Its like theheart muscle is twitchingand not firing.
Whomever may havehad doubts of the powerof prayer before had tohave at least come awaywith something to thinkabout during those tensemoments. Both teamsgathered around thescene and all was quietexcept for the sound ofHail Mary being re-peated by those kneelingnear Mays.
After Grant collapsed,the players witnessed hismother sprinting towardher son and sobbing.
We held hands anddid the only thing weknew to do: pray. Prayhard and loud, Moellerjunior lacrosse playerAdam Kohlman said.That kid needed us andthat Mom needed us.
While his son was be-ing attended to, DougMays walked around thefield asking spectators topray. The nearby rugbygame also stopped andthose players joined inthe spiritual efforts whileLindseys crew workedfervently on resuscitat-ing Mays.
It was almost like theperfect storm, McGinnissaid. Its a great blessingto have the right peoplewatching our game andtaking a tragic situationand turning it in to a posi-
tive result.Mays was taken to a
hospital to be seen by acardiologist. Lindsey,Wallace and McGinnisdrove up later and wereable to see Mays and hisparents in the emergencyroom.
Preparation is crucialBecause of Grants
prescribed need for rest,his father is speaking forhim until he is fully recu-perated. Doug and KelleyMays are forever grate-ful for the presence ofqualified medical person-nel and the presence ofan AED.
The biggest thing Ican take away is the im-portance of having thosedevices, having themreadily available andcertified and having thetraining to use them,Mays said. These de-vices arent limited toathletes. Certainly, in thiscase, the athlete was thebeneficiary. They can belife savers.
The proof came short-ly after the shock wasadministered. The firstwords from Grant Mayswere, Wow! I feelgreat! according to hisfather. Of course, he wasthen advised to remainstable to allow the trainedexperts to continue theirefforts.
The game was neverfinished, but the outcomewas one for the ages. Noone left the field with aloss.
I felt helpless, hismother felt helpless,Mays said. When hedrove away in the (life)squad, we felt very hum-bled. When he left thefield on the gurney, I hadmy son back.
Pretty much the entirecampus had stopped whatit was doing to surroundGrant and his parentswith prayer.
We felt like we werepart of a miracle, Kohl-man said.
The men ofMoeller deliver
McGinnis has seen histeams faith tested on andoff the field. By tradition,the team prays at thestatue of Mary on campusbefore climbing the stairsto compete at the GerryFaust Complex. Fausthimself still kisses thestatue at every visit.
The Moeller missionon their website says thefollowing:
