    The Mrs. Norman V. Randolph Relief Fund was established in 1910 to help needy Confederate women. The fund continues to assist women who are the daughters of Confederate veterans by providing quarterly financial assistance and personal remembrances throughout the year.
    On the local, state and national level, Daughters work with numerous civic organizations including homeless shelters, homes for battered women and children, hospital associations, and food banks.
    Education is and has always been a priority with the United Daughters of the Confederacy. The Organization offers a number of scholarships to those who meet certain criteria (see Scholarships).
    The Annabella Drummond McMath Scholarship provides women over the age of 30 with the opportunity to continue (or begin) their education.
    The United Daughters of the Confederacy also presents a number of scholastic awards annually. Recipients are chosen by their academies or universities/colleges solely on the basis of merit.

    Confederate Monument
    Arlington National
    In 1898, President William McKinley, a Union veteran, asked that the North “in a spirit of fraternity” share with the South the care of the graves of Confederate soldiers. In consequence, a Confederate section was designated in Arlington National Cemetery, and the remains of 267 Confederate soldiers were reinterred in this section. Upon receiving permission from Secretary of War William Howard Taft to place a Confederate monument in Arlington Cemetery, the United Daughters of the Confederacy embarked on a campaign to secure funds to build the monument. This 32.5-foot bronze monument contains 32 life-size figures. The dominating feature is a woman of heroic size who represents the South. The monument was unveiled on June 4, 1914. In accepting for the nation, President Woodrow Wilson said: “I am not so much happy as proud to participate in this capacity on such an occasion; proud that I should represent such a people.”
    In 1913, Congress appropriated $400,000 to establish a memorial commemorating the services of the women of the North and the South during the period 1861 to 1865; another $300,000 was contributed by patriotic Americans. This memorial is the permanent headquarters of the American Red Cross Society in Washington, D.C.
    Lee Window Washington National Cathedral
    Three Tiffany stained glass memorial windows were donated to the building: one by the Women’s Relief Corps of the Grand Army of the Republic, one by the United Daughters of the Confederacy, and one jointly by the two organizations. A marble tablet on the wall of the landing contains the following marker lettered in gold:
    A Memorial built by the Government of the United States and Patriotic Citizens to the Women of the North and the Women of the South by a now United Country that their labors to mitigate the sufferings of the sick and wounded in war may be perpetuated, this memorial is dedicated to the service of the American Red Cross.
    The United Daughters of the Confederacy placed memorials to General Robert E. Lee and General Thomas Jonathan “Stonewall” Jackson in the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., in 1957. These memorials, in the form of a bay, contain two tracery windows depicting episodes in the lives of the two generals.
    The Organization places wreaths annually to commemorate the births of General Robert E. Lee (January 19) and President Jefferson Davis (June 3) in Statuary Hall, United States Capitol; at the Jefferson Davis Monument, Monument Avenue, Richmond, Va., for the Annual Massing of the Flags (June 3); at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Arlington National Cemetery, on November 11 (Veterans’ Day); and at the Confederate Monument, Arlington National Cemetery, on Memorial Day.
    On state and local levels, memorial observances are held annually to remember not only the men who served in the War Between the States but also the veterans of all wars.
    The United Daughters of the Confederacy has always come to the aid of the nation in times of crisis. At the beginning of World War I, the President General of the UDC wrote to President Woodrow Wilson and offered the loyal support of the 100,000 United Daughters of the Confederacy in whatever capacity their services would be needed. During the war, the UDC supported 70 hospital beds at the American Military Hospital at Neuilly, France, at a cost of $42,000 per year. It contributed $82,069 for French and Belgian orphans. On the home front, UDC members purchased $24,843,368 worth of war bonds and savings stamps. In addition, $841,676 was donated to the Red Cross and other war relief work.
    During World War II, the United Daughters of the Confederacy was the first national women’s organization to offer its service to the United States government for war relief. The work of the UDC was recognized by its inclusion at various national conferences held by the War Department. The UDC assisted the National Nursing Association by giving financial support for student nurses until the Bolton Act was passed by the United States Congress creating the first Cadet Nurse Corps. The UDC also donated ambulances for use at European battle sites and donated a blood plasma unit through the Red Cross. Daughters sold $18,534,213 in war bonds. The Red Cross commended the UDC for its outstanding work and contributions.
    During the Korean War, the Vietnam Conflict , and Desert Shield/Desert Storm — and in the aftermath of September 11 — the United Daughters of the Confederacy has continued its patriotic work. Daughters donate thousands of dollars and spend countless hours every year working with the nation’s veterans in Veterans Affairs (VA) facilities and nursing homes. The UDC presently has representatives and deputies in VA medical centers in 18 states.
    The United Daughters of the Confederacy honors men and women of Confederate descent who have served their country in time of war by bestowing a variety of military service awards.

    Coyotes In Village

     There have been several reports of coyotes in the Village recently.  It is important to remain proactive to avoid conflicts with coyotes, but it is also important to understand how to manage an encounter on your property.  Removing attractants is the most important and effective way to lessen the chance of a coyote appearing on your property.

    Attractants can include:
    Loose or unattended pets, especially small dogs and free-ranging cats,Food or food scraps of any kind, especially meat,Food or water bowls for pets left outside,Fallen fruit from trees or seed from bird feeders, Composting bins without tight-fitting lids, Garbage bags or cans without tight-fitting lids.If you do encounter a coyote on your property, do not run from it.  Instead, stand your ground if you are in a safe location.  Coyotes are generally fearful of humans, so yell, wave your arms or throw things at the coyote to scare it off your property.  Effective deterrents include air horns, hoses or (in extreme cases) pepper spray.  If the coyote is not responding to your attempts to drive it away, or it appears aggressive, sick or injured,  DO NOT APPROACH IT.  If you find yourself in a dangerous situation, contact the Greenhills Police Department at 513-825-2101.  You may also contact the Ohio Division of Wildlife at 937-372-5639 for more information on coyotes and trappers.

    Interesting Facts On Healthcare
    August 9, 2017: The individual healthcare mandate requires every American to buy health insurance or pay a fine. In 2016, 6.5 million Americans chose to pay the fine rather than sign up for insurance on the Obamacare exchanges.[1]
    The mandate has always been the most unpopular part of President Obama’s healthcare law, officially known as the Affordable Care Act. In addition to those who pay the fine rather than buy the mandated levels of insurance, 15 million people would drop their Obamacare coverage if it were legal to do so.
    This does not necessarily mean that these individuals want to go without insurance. Obamacare requires every insurance policy to cover a set of what it defines as Essential Health Benefits.[2] The more benefits that a plan covers, the more expensive it is. Some people might prefer to buy less comprehensive insurance at a lower cost. For example, one option might be to buy insurance only for major healthcare costs such as surgeries or hospitalizations.
    Since most Americans receive health insurance from their employer, the rising cost of healthcare is a key factor holding down wage growth. If the cost of benefits were the same today as a generation ago, the average pay for full-time workers would be more than $3,300 higher annually. Some people might prefer a bigger paycheck and less comprehensive coverage.
    Healthcare policy analyst Bob Laszewski believes the ongoing unpopularity of Obamacare insurance coverage raises questions about “stability in the individual-health-insurance market.” He notes that “only about 40 percent of those eligible for subsidies have signed up for coverage. In what other business or government program would such a dismal acceptance by those it was targeted to serve be considered a success?”[1]
    Laszewski was named the Washington Post's Wonkblog "Pundit of the Year" for 2013 for his coverage of the Obamacare rollout.[3] Laszewski does acknowledge that “things may well be looking more stable if insurance-company profits are the only measure.” Hospital revenue has increased significantly since the passage of the Affordable Care Act. Additionally, there has been a growing consolidation of the healthcare industry through mergers and acquisitions.

    Water Main Breaks
    The exact cause has not come out, but if you haven't noticed, there was a large number of water main breaks primarily on the East side of Winton Road.
    Farragut was especially hard hit.
    Some sort of pressure imbalance may be the culprit.

  10. WWWarrior added a post in a topic Golf Carts !!!!   

    I understand your viewpoint and to some degree agree with it.  You hope that everyone does what they are supposed to do and operates vehicles safely.  I kind of reviewed this conversation in my mind yesterday coming back on I-71 from Cleveland yesterday when I saw a motorcyclist going 65 mph or better with a person riding behind the driver.  Helmets at 65 mph on a busy highway vs. kids seat-belted in a golf cart at 25 mph (probably less).

    I would doubt that it is. But, I would guess more than likely it's a wash of expenses when you factor in the fact that the maintenance people of the Village are tasked with the upkeep. That work takes away from other things that could/needs to be maintained and completed in the Village (Like cleaning up the brick pavers and landscaped areas which the Village owns in front of the shopping center).
    The price to play golf on that course is too expensive for what it is really is. Sure, you can get some short game work in. But, it takes about 40 minutes to play if your by yourself. And, I've played before on that course with some friends where we actually threw the ball instead of striking it with a club.  Good times were had by all - and it ticked off the person at the desk who shall remain nameless (Clue: Math teacher).

  15. WWWarrior added a post in a topic Golf Carts !!!!   

    If a parent buys their child a bicycle or skateboard and the child rides in the street legally, but tragically gets struck by an inattentive car driver, how is that different?  Or even crossing a street as a pedestrian.
    I guess the biggest difference is that golf carts are required to be operated safely, as a motor vehicle (because they are), by a licensed driver. They are required to have the necessary safety equipment (even a windshield wiper) including seat belts.
    I'm not sure I understand your concern with kids being strapped in being a bad thing.  Can you explain?

  16. Jewel added a post in a topic Golf Carts !!!!   

    Just some comments: I see this ordinance/allowance to drive golf carts on the road as a true safety hazard. I am not one to go overboard on safety issues and I don't even think that it is necessary for kids to wear all the headgear that others think is necessary to ride a bike down a sidewalk (I do think it's necessary if off-road or during competition).
    But, I find it very hard to believe that a parent should be driving their children around in golf carts on public roads. I have seen kids "strapped" in on golf carts and with their parents, driving around on the Village streets. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's neglectful for parents to put their kids at risk of severe harm by being a passenger on a golf cart. But, I would say that if a car hits one of these carts with passengers on it it will be catastrophic.
    I wonder what any of the parents would say to my comments about this. Is it neat that golf carts are allowed on streets? Yes, I guess. But, is it worth the risk? Well, I guess that's up to the user.

    New Schools Construction
    The link below takes you to a presentation on the current schedule of new building construction.  In particular is a question
    I've been asked a lot as to "where" the new schools are being built.  Page 10 and 11, the design teams show where the
    construction is to take place. In particular, the new K-6 facility will be directly behind the present Middle School in the
    lower field and built into the hillside.  The new Grade 7-12 facility is in front of the current HS on Kemper. 
    The project is very much still in the design phase and will be until late 2018, when they can begin to break ground.  It will
    about 2 years worth of construction.  Check it out, it will answer a lot of questions:
