A4 WESTERN HILLS PRESS AUGUST 8, 2012 NEWS Show benefits Elder, Seton scholarships By Kurt Backscheider kbackscheidercommunitypress.com Emmy Award-winning vocalist Nancy James will perform next month to help raise money for scholarship funds at Elder and Seton High Schools. James, a longtime West Sider who lives in Green Township, has been a familiar face and voice throughout the Instate since her career was launched three decades ago on the "Bob Braun Show." She's taking the stage with Carmon DeLeone, the music director of the Cincinnati Ballet, the Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra and the Middletown Symphony, in a salute to Rosemary Clooney. The benefit concert begins at 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 1, in the Seton Performance Hall, 3901 Glenway Ave., Price Hill. "This show is a musical love letter to Rosemary Clooney," James said. "It tells the story of her life and her music." She said she and DeLeone started performing the salute to Clooney about a year ago, and they've played to sold out venues in Kentucky and Ohio. This is the first time the show is being presented on the West Side, James said. "It's always so much fun to perform at home on the West Side," she said. Proceeds from the show will go directly to The David Allen Scholarship at Elder and The Sister Loretta Marie Auer Memorial Scholarship at Seton. James said she and Al- West Sider Nancy James, a popular vocalist who was on the "Bob Braun Show," will perform a salute to Rosemary Clooney on Saturday, Sept. 1, to raise money for scholarships at Elder and Seton high schools. FILE PHOTO len, who serves as chairman of the music department at Elder, the music director at St. William Church and the conductor of the Cincinnati Metropolitan Orchestra, have known each other for many years. James said Allen used to bring Elder's glee club to perform on the "Bob Braun Show" around Christmas time. "I think the world of him," James said. "Dave is the music man on the West Side, and he gives so much back to the community. "I wanted to make sure the scholarship continues and allows more students an opportunity to be under his tutelage," she said. The show lasts about 90 minutes, and she said photos of Clooney will scroll across the large projection screen as she and DeLeone perform. James said pianist Steve Schmidt, trombonist Bill Gemmer, guitarist Brad Meyers and bass player Mike Scharfe, who toured with Clooney, will accompany her and DeLeone on stage. She said she hopes people pack the performance hall in support of the scholarship funds, and that they enjoy the concert. "It's a wonderful piece that has its own set of legs," James said.

V '' -iWa SKA After 25-Year Warranty on Silverplating By Kurt Backscheider kbackscheidercommunitypress.com Ed Flick has weighed and tallied pull tabs from aluminum cans for nearly nine years. Every couple of months, after he's weighed and filled several jars with tabs, he drives up to the Ronald McDonald House and donates the tabs to the charitable organization. He's made the trip numerous times over the past several years, but the one he made in early July was especially satisfying. The load of tabs the Price Hill-Western Hills Kiwanis Club member turned in last month marked the club's donation of one million tabs to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Cincinnati. "We started collecting in September 2003," said Flick, a Cleves resident. "Our goal was to get one million. It took us a while, but we made it. "I couldn't wait to get back and tell the club," he said. Flick said the Ronald McDonald House turns the tabs in for cash and uses the money to help provide families with a home away from home while their children are hospitalized at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. Tonya Pate, spokeswoman for the Ronald McDonald House, said the organization raised $16,500 in 2010 from its tab collection program, and in 2011 they set a record by earning $19,000. Flick said he isn't sure where he read or heard about the Ronald McDonald House's tab recycling program, but he said when he presented the idea to collect tabs to the club everyone agreed to pitch in. Every Tuesday the club meets, members bring in bags of pull tabs from all varieties of aluminum cans. The Women's Connection in Price Hill has also been a big contributor . He said it takes 1,552 tabs to equal 1 pound of tabs. Since the club started collecting he said they've turned in 645 pounds of tabs to the Ronald McDonald House. And now that they have reached their one million goal he said they've decided to try to collect 1 million more. "Hopefully it goes a little faster this time," Flick said.
