A home on Middle Creek Road is where solar clock builder Thomas Zane Roberts (18511925) lived. The 1900 house was restored and now functions as a place for retreats. The Boone County Historic Preservation Review Board is giving Boone/Gallatin Circuit Court Judge Anthony Frohlich and The Bridge Community Church of Northern Kentucky an award in its building adaptive reuse category for the project as part of the board’s annual honors. Frohlich and his two sons purchased the home in February 2009. The retreat center opened this past August. Frohlich said the house needed a lot of work to get it livable and restored. Frohlich’s friend Bo Weaver, the church’s pastor, and members of his congregation did almost all of the interior work, Frohlich said. The retreat center is open to the public for a cost. The church rents the house from Frohlich. “Oh, it’s wonderful. ... It’s doing what we wanted it to do because we get a lot of churches (to) come down here,” said Frohlich, who wrote a book about Roberts titled “Time Keeper: Thomas Zane Roberts, A Kentucky Renaissance Man.” It was See AWARD on page A2 Boone/Gallatin Circuit Court Judge Anthony Frohlich stands outside the Thomas Zane Roberts house in rural Burlington.

Duke For the Postmaster JUSTIN B. DUKE/STAFF Since the the Walton Kroger opened, Fred Kirtley has used the store as a place to exercise every day. Who needs a gym when there’s a Kroger down the street? Since the Walton Kroger Marketplace opened Fred Kirtley has visited every day to walk to the store and stay in shape. “I’d been watching it be built and one of the guys building it told me it was 164,000 square feet,” Kirtley said. The 69-year-old widower realized a building that big would be a great place to walk. “I’ve got to buy food anyway,” Kirtley said. Because the store is so big and sells a large variety of items, there’s always something to look at, he said. Even something as simple as picking up eggs and milk is enough to stay active, Kirtley said. “That’s a pretty long walk from the front,” he said. By walking indoors, Fred Kirtley doesn’t have to worry about the weather getting in the way of his exercise. In addition to picking up groceries, Kirtley often just stops in to have lunch. “It’s a one-stop-shop,” he said. Even if Kirtley doesn’t need to pick anything up, he’ll go for his walk and usually run into a friend and stop and talk. Kirtley usually spends up to 90 minutes a day in the store. By walking indoors, Kirtley doesn’t have to worry about the weather getting in the way of his exercise. “It’s cool and dry in the summer and warm and dry in the winter,” he said. Kirtley is an example of how the community has embraced the Kroger Marketplace in Walton, said City Council Member Ann Leake. HYBRIDS Not Just For Highways.
