The Homebuilders Association of Northern Kentucky celebrated the Nov. 13 opening of a local charity, Housing Opporunities of Northern Kentucky, which seeks to provide housing and assistance to residents. The ribbon cutting at the Ludlow house featured Mark Hubbard of Dragonfly Decorative Art Glass, Jim Stegman of Stegman Construction and Steve Lutkenhoff of HONK Inc.

“Objection!” The shout startled Kenton County Police Detective J.J. Byrd, who whirled around to face Sgt. Larry Shelton, who was seated behind him and grinning broadly. “Hey- I didn’t say anything during your speech,” pointed out Byrd, drawing stifled laughs from the students assembled on the jury. “So can’t you just let me finish?” Byrd and Shelton were among the Kenton County Police Department members who took part in a number of mock trials at Thomas More College in late November as part of the Crime and Society Course. The course teaches students about all aspects of law enforcement, including traffic stops, crime scene investigations and how to handle a court appearance. For the trial, the students had to take the stand as Kenton County police officers and defend an earlier police report they had taken, with the reports ranging from simple traffic stops to theft. Shelton, who is also an attorney, played the role of the defense, trying to rattle the officers on the stand, while Byrd played the role

Kenton County Police Detective J.J. Byrd, playing the role of the prosecutor, gives his final argument to the jury during a mock trial at Thomas More College on Nov. 18. During the Crime and Society course, the students learn about all aspects of law enforcement, including how to handle a court appearance. of the prosecutor. Captain Greg Sandel served as the judge, while the students alternated serving on the jury. “The kids really enjoy this, because there’s a lot of hands-on learning,” said teacher Jim Schwartz. “It’s something new and different every day, and they really have fun with it.” Sandel agreed. “It’s fun to come in and interact with the kids,” he said. “This is all

part of our community education program, and it’s something we enjoy doing.” During the trials, the students were called one by one to take the witness stand to recount their report and the alleged crime. Schwartz played the defendant, sitting next to Shelton and watching intently as his students tried to remember the facts and avoid any legal jargon traps. “Have you ever been tested for

being color blind? ” asked Shelton while interrogating student Bruce Johnson, who wrote a report about running a red light. “If not, then I guess you can’t rule out the fact that you are, which means you don’t really know if that light was red.” Turning slightly red himself, Johnson grinned, looking toward Byrd for reassurance. “Umm...well I see colors and so I know I’m not color blind, and that’s how I know he ran a red light,” he said, gaining confidence as he spoke. “I know exactly what I saw.” After each case, the jury deliberated in the hallway before coming back in to announce their decision. At one point, two consecutive guilty verdicts caused Schwartz to take a sideways glance at Shelton on the defense stand. “Maybe I need a new lawyer,” he joked. Student Matt Klausing said that while the course has been fun, it’s also been incredibly valuable in terms of education. “I’m a criminal justice major, so this is great experience to see exactly what being in law enforcement means,” he said. “It’s been really in-depth, and I think we’ve all learned a lot.”

Fire departments hosting fundraiser By Jason Brubaker jbrubaker@nky.com

The Crescent Springs/Villa Hills and Fort Mitchell Fire Departments are partnering for the second annual Gobble & Give fundraiser on Nov. 27. The event will be held at the Crescent Springs/Villa Hills Firehouse, located at 777 Overlook Drive in Crescent Springs. It will include drinks, live entertainment and door prizes, as well as visits from local celebrities like former

Cincinnati Reds’ pitcher Tom Browning and Channel 12 anchor Rob Braun. All of the money raised will go toward local organizations, including the Diocesan Catholic Children’s Home, Chick’s & Chuck’s Breast Cancer Awareness and the Local Autism Chapter. “This was a good time last year, and we did a terrific job of raising money,” said Scott Ringo, a member of the CSVH Fire Department board. “People can come out and give a little time and

money and support some really wonderful organizations.” Ringo said the 2008 event raised nearly $2,700, which was donated to the Shriners Burn Hospital. “We’re hoping to top that amount this year,” he said. “We hope to see a lot of people out there supporting this.” Fort Mitchell Assistant Chief Chuck Dietz agreed. “We’ve gotten a lot of community support and local business support this year, so we think it’s going to be ever better this time

around,” he said. “We’re just glad we can get together and do something like this.” The Gobble & Give will run from 8 p.m. until around 1 a.m., and is open to everyone. Admission is $10 per person, and tickets can be purchased at the door. Donations are also accepted, and checks can be made payable to CSVFD / FMFD Thanksgiving Fundraiser.

Got leftover turkey? A few ideas for the extra bird ences. “We get wrapped up in the holidays and the holiday spirit and we forget about what we need to do. You don’t want to be remembered for sending everyone in the hospital; you want to be remembered for the good times, good food and the family spirit.” Mason said that those preparing the meal should wash their hands before handling the food and keep raw foods separated from the uncooked. Cold foods should remain cold (under 40 degrees) and hot foods should stay hot (over 140 degrees), Mason said. Maggie Green, owner of Crescent Spring’s The Green

This Thanksgiving should be spent doing just that – giving thanks. These thanks are usually given over a hearty meal with plenty of food – which inevitably leads to an abundance of leftovers. Many may forget about proper food safety during this hectic time or may be running short on ideas of what to do with the excess food. “I think that we do have to be concerned about food safety around holidays,” said Diane Mason, Boone County Extension agent for family and consumer sci-

Apron Company, said that leftovers should not be reheated in a slow cooker due to the length of time it takes for the food to pass through the “danger zone,” the temperatures between 40 degrees and 140 degrees. According to Green, who edited the most recent edition of “Joy of Cooking,” leftover stuffing should be heated in an oven set no lower than 325 degrees or in a microwave oven. Once reheated, leftover stuffing may be served in a preheated slow cooker on the buffet, Green said in an e-mail. Food being served should also be rotated out

throughout the day, Mason said. “Don’t put things on the counter or on the table for more than two hours,” she said. “People need to eat, but then clean up the table. Don’t leave the turkey, appetizers or cheese trays out all afternoon.” Leftovers should be divided into smaller portions and stored in smaller, shallow containers, Mason said. This will allow the food to cool more quickly, she said. Most Thanksgiving staples, can be safely refrigerated and kept for three to four days and can be stored in the freezer for two to three months, Mason said. Potatoes can last for three to four days in the refrigerator but typically don’t freeze well, Mason said. Gravy or meat broth is the only exception and

should only be refrigerated for one or two days, though it can be frozen. Mason said. “People need to look at what they have left over and think realistically about how long it will keep and whether they will be able to use it in that period of time or whether some will need to go into the freezer,” Mason said. There are many creative uses for the standard Thanksgiving leftovers, according to both Mason and Green. Mashed potatoes can be used for mashed potato pancakes and sweet potatoes can be mashed up for sweet mashed potatoes, according to Mason The cooked turkey can also be used to replace chicken as an ingredient in many dishes, such as soup

Place turkey and white sauce over the broccoli and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until it’s hot throughout. The dish can be served over noodles or even on top of leftover dressing. “It’s very simple and easy and most of it’s already cooked so you don’t have to start all over again,” Mason said. Turkey can also be used to make a healthy wrap, Mason said. Spread low fat cream cheese on a whole wheat wrap and turkey, lettuce and some cranberry sauce on top and roll it up. According to Green, a chef and dietitian, turkey can also be used for turkey tetrazzini, croquettes or creamed turkey. The leftovers can also be included as part of a salad, by tossing cubes or strips of meat with a relish, salsa, or chutney, and serving on a bed of mixed greens, said Green.

Drees voted best civic servant By Regan Coomer rcoomer@nky.com

Kids Voting Northern Kentucky celebrated the civic engagement of local students and Kenton County Judge-Executive Ralph Drees at a luncheon Nov. 20 in Covington. The organization, which is the local chapter of the national Kids Voting USA, helps schools in Kenton, Boone and Campbell counties teach the importance of voting and civic leadership. “It’s just volunteers doing the best they can to help generate understanding for how important it is to get out and vote,” said Joe Cutter, chairman of Kids Voting Northern Kentucky.

Secretary of State Trey Grayson was the featured speaker at the lunch. Grayson said Drees’ career is “marked with regional leadership.” Grayson shared a story of his father taking him to the polls as a child. “Now through Kids Voting Northern Kentucky our kids are getting that opportunity,” he said.

One strand of lights and a candle in the window just won’t do around the holidays for Amy Holtzman. That’s why Holtzman, one of the producers of Desperate Landscapes, is on the lookout for the worst Christmas decorations in the Greater Cincinnati area. Normally the television show is reserved for helping homeowners fix their landscaping and yards, but Holtzman said they decided to add a little twist for the holiday season. “We want to find the neighborhood that goes all out, and then basically find the house in it that doesn’t,” she said with a laugh. “We want to help bring that house up to the neighborhood standards and create kind of a winter wonderland.” Holtzman said the transformation is set to happen in early December, as soon as they’re able to sort through the applications

and select the worst decorations. The winning homeowner will only have to provide a few friends and some manpower, as Desperate Landscapes will provide the materials. “Everyone has driven through that neighborhood where it seems every house has the snow globes and inflatables and lights on every branch, and then you’ll see one that has a candle in the window and that’s it,” she said. “That’s the one we want, because we’ve got some great ideas to get that person in the holiday spirit.” Holtzman said residents can nominate themselves or a neighbor, but with one important condition in mind. “You’ve got to be able have a sense of humor about this,” she said. “This is supposed to be a fun thing, so we want someone who can laugh a little and enjoy this.” For more information, or for a nomination form, visit www.jaytv.net.

Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday listened intently as Caywood Elementary fifthgrader Keely Martin explained the school’s daylighting features, carefully pointing out each facet. “Well that is some set-up you guys have here,” he said as he examined the room. “This is really impressive, and it’s even more impressive that you all as students know all about it!” Holliday visited the school on Nov. 17 to learn more about the energy-saving features, many of which are also currently being

implemented on the new Turkey Foot Middle School, which is slated to open for students next school year. Among those features are the daylighting and geothermal heating and cooling. Holliday was led on his tour by members of the Caywood Energy Wise Team, a group of students who have been helping the engineers at Turkey Foot based on their research at Caywood. “It’s great to see the kids so involved with this process,” said Holliday. “It’s important that they understand how important it is to conserve energy, and they’re getting that here.”

A Christmas tradition is being used to eliminate a disease. The Florence Rotary Club is hosting its annual Angels Among Us Christmas concert at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 30, at Lakeside Christian Church, 195 Buttermilk Pike. The evening features more than a dozen performers including Rusty Bird, Ray Cummins, Evan Dallas and Kathie Fink. “It’s going to be nothing but music,” said organizer Gary Stewart. Stewart plans for music all night. Despite the concert officially beginning with the featured performers at 6:30 p.m., doors will open at 5:45 p.m. and music will be playing. “Anyone who comes early won’t just be sitting idly,” Stewart said. This is the 36th concert Stewart has organized, and each year it has grown. It first started at the Crestview

Hills Mall, but has moved to the 1,250-seat Lakeside Christian Church. “There is a chance, one of these years, we’ll fill that church,” Stewart said. A concert Rotary hosted in May drew more than 900, and this may be the concert to fill the church, he said. “I’m telling people to get there early,” Stewart said. At the concert’s midpoint, an offering will be taken. All the proceeds will go toward Rotary International’s goal of worldwide polio eradication. “It’s almost gone; there’s only four more countries left,” Stewart said. Because the cause is so important, Stewart is even more appreciative of the performers. “We’re pretty excited that people with this much talent are willing to share that talent free of charge,” he said. Tickets for the concert are available at florencerotary.org or at Stewart Insurance by calling 371-7797.

Town center still going strong in down economy By Regan Coomer rcoomer@nky.com

Business is holding steady at the Crestview Hills Town Center. The outdoor mall is at 96 percent occupancy and sales feedback from tenants show revenues are up from last year, said Christine Wesselkamper, the mall’s property manager. “The economy is not hitting the stores as much as I thought it would,” she said. “I talk to tenants weekly about their traffic and how their sales are doing. I’ve gotten positive feedback. It depends on different factors; if the holidays happen to fall that week or the weather because we’re an outdoor center. Overall it’s a positive vibe.” Wesselkamper said she couldn’t comment on the exact revenue coming in, but confirmed the majority of stores are up this year from 2008. While the retail store J. Jill closed this year, the center added Five Guys Burgers and Fries and Mattress Firm to the restaurant and retail line-up. Providing coupons, sales

and deals are keeping customers coming to the town center, Wesselkamper said. “I think the consumer is being a lot smarter about their purchases and luckily our stores are really rising to that and giving them deals,” she said. There are 43 retail businesses in the town center, including Dillard’s, as well as 17 restaurants. “People come here to eat and then they shop and vice versa. That’s what we offer. It’s a destination spot,”

Wesselkamper said. Ann Buller, owner of Color Me Mine in the town center, said her business has grown steadily over the last four years, since the mall’s opening. “It’s a family-oriented thing,” she said of why her business is going strong. “People who can’t afford to take a trip come in and do something special.” Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year at Color Me Mine, Buller said, with as many as 1,000

ornaments, plates, cups, figurines and more being painted by customers. “They come for family bonding and to make gifts that have more meaning than when you go out and a gift,” she said. The Merle Norman store located in the Crestview Hills Town Center is also doing well despite the economy, said owner Lisa Trusty. “I’m still up over ‘08, but our customers have changed,” she said.

Shoppers strolled down the sidewalk in Crestview Hills Town Center Thursday Nov. 19. The outdoor mall is doing well and is at 96 percent occupancy, said property manager Christine Wesselkamper. Trusty said customers aren’t as likely to come in and make a big purchase all at once. They’re more likely to buy basics and shop sales. “We’re up because we’re fitting a niche right now,” she said, adding the store’s policy of personalized customer service, one-of-akind stock and reasonable

prices are keeping customers shopping. “They can treat themselves to niceties and still feel pretty without the big price tag,” she said. For more information about the Crestview Hills Town Center, visit shopcrestviewhillstowncenter.com.

Independence residents can win some cash, and prestige, for creative holiday displays in December. The city and the Independence Business Association are debuting the first annual Brighten Up the Holidays home decorating contest in December. The contest is open to residents of Independence and will be judged by local business and community leaders, including Mayor Chris Moriconi. “We’re hoping something like this gives people good feelings and gets them around to see everyone else’s lights and puts them in a good holiday spirit,” said IBA president John Richardson. The grand prize winner will receive $100, a framed certificate, a gift basket from IBA members and his or her name on a plaque in the city building. Four other finalists will receive a blue ribbon, framed certificate and an IBA gift basket. “We’re trying to find as many Independence events we can to be a part of to not only brand our group, but also our ultimate goal as business owners is trying to get people turned on to the businesses in Independence,” Richardson said. Registration will take place between Nov. 30 and Dec. 11. Cost to enter into the decorating contest is $10. All proceeds will benefit the Kenton County Family Resource and Service Centers, Richardson said.

District wants local fund to stay put By Regan Coomer rcoomer@nky.com

The Kenton County School District wants to ensure its reserve fund is used for its original purpose – keeping schools open in case of financial emergency. “It was a no-brainer for our board,” said Superintendent Tim Hanner of a resolution passed at the Nov. 16 board meeting opposing the plan of some legislators to use school districts’ contingency funds to balance the state budget. “We’ve got to be prudent as a school district in order to have the appropriate revenue to keep our schools open,” Hanner said. The Kenton County School District has a fund balance of $11.6 million to be used in dire straits, Hanner said. Since 2007, a committee has been in place to make the district more efficient. In the last three years, that reserve has grown from $7 million to the almost $12 million currently due to cuts and efficiencies enacted throughout the district, Hanner said. That fund balance is enough to keep the district running for five weeks during a financial emergency, Hanner said, adding a similar contingency amount was

common throughout the state in other districts. House speaker Greg Stumbo said in October that lawmakers could consider using school districts’ reserves to offset a $161 million state budget shortfall for the current fiscal year. Hanner said he and other Northern Kentucky superintendents have met with local legislators to explain the need and purpose of these rainy-day funds. “The more they’ve become educated on what fund balances are for, the more their perceptions have changed,” Hanner said. In the resolution, the Kenton County Board of Education called on “all citizens of this community to contact their state representatives and senator with similar statements in support of community control of this district’s vital financial resources for the teaching and learning of our children.” Board of Education president Karen Collins said the contingency fund is for use against “things unforeseen.” “It’s done as preparation for the worst-case scenario,” she said. “We felt this was against what our tax payers pay their taxes for.”

St. Pius students speak out on drugs, alcohol By Jason Brubaker jbrubaker@nky.com

Edgewood Police Officer Terry Chinn has read plenty of D.A.R.E. essays in the nearly 15 years he has spent in the department. Still, he admits he was blown away by the winning essays from St. Pius X this year. “These kids did a terrific job,” he said. “Reading through them, I was just amazed at how well-written they all were.” The winning essays, authored by fifth-graders Jaret Schreiver, Isabel Eliassen and Lauren Reinersman, were selected by their classmates after reading them out loud following the course. Following are some excerpts from their essays.

St. Joseph School in Crescent Springs has recently debuted elementary and middle school academic teams. Here elementary academic team members Zach Rohling, Mark Briede, Josephine Meyer-Hogan and Natalie Dressman prepare for a match against St. Agnes School Thursday Nov. 19.

Academic teams have kicked off at St. Joseph

By Regan Coomer rcoomer@nky.com

Buzzers are going off at St. Joseph School in Crescent Springs. The school recently started two academic teams for students in third, fourth and fifth grades with 17 members and sixth, seventh and eighth grades with 22 members. It has been several years since the school last had an academic team. The teams will compete in quickrecall, trivia-based matches weekly against area schools to try to buzz in first with the correct answer. Teams will

also participate in written assessment in the areas of math, science, language arts, English composition and more. The teams will compete with schools in the Northern Kentucky Academic League and at Governor’s Cup, a state academic competition. Parent volunteer Andy Strange is the coach for the third, fourth and fifth grade students. Strange was on the academic team himself in school and wanted to make sure that opportunity was available at St. Joseph. “I think it builds confidence,” he said. “We have such a sports-driven culture so some kids may feel left out. I wanted to make sure kids at St. Joseph’s

had that outlet if they wanted it.” In addition to self assurance, academic team membership helps students out in school by exposing them to material they may not have otherwise learned, Strange said. Middle school academic team coach Barbara Fritz agreed, saying membership broadens knowledge. “The questions are hard. They’re not easy, but they will learn something from it,” she said. Although Fritz herself is new to academic teams, she said the students and herself are catching on quickly. “I just really want the kids to have a good experience with it,” she said.

Roman Fest brings history to life for VMA By Jason Brubaker jbrubaker@nky.com

Joe Cordonnier walked slowly up and down the line of students, pausing occasionally to adjust his shield and helmet in the misting rain and shivering wind. After one final glance toward the enemy, he raised his right arm skyward and issued his command. “Ready...set...fire!” he yelled, bringing his arm down to punctuate the order. Immediately, a cloud of tennis balls filled the air, as the Villa Madonna students simulated an ancient Roman battle. Using homemade shields, and under the guidance of members of Roman Legion XXII, the students conducted the battle during their Roman Fest, held outside on the school grounds. The festival, a collaboration between the history and Latin classes at the school, was part of the culmination of their lessons on ancient Rome. For the festival, the students created a project based on an aspect of Roman culture. “You can’t just leave his-

Still others helped cook some traditional ancient Roman dishes, such as oxtail soup,

while others set up a displays featuring ancient Roman currency, traditional songs and dances, and even hygiene. A few students even donned togas and/or plumed helmets as they made their way through the displays. “We offered a little guidance and helped check the accuracy, but these were all the students’ ideas,” said Latin teacher Mark Atwood.

“This is the best way for the kids to really put what they’ve learned into action.” The day also included a play by the school’s drama class, as well as a gladiator match. “This puts history in the hands of the kids and lets them investigate it,” said Atwood. “That’s the best way to learn.”

Beechwood band finishes third at state KMEA The Beechwood Marching Tigers recently placed third in the Kentucky Music Educators Association (KMEA) State Band Class A finals Nov. 7 at the University of Louisville Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. The competition featured 4 Class A finalists. This is Beechwood’s 12th appearance in KMEA State Finals, which is the 10th most of all Kentucky schools, regardless of classification. It also marks the fifth consecutive finals appearance for the Marching Tigers, a streak unmatched in Beechwood history. After finishing third out of sixteen semi-finalist bands earlier that day, the Marching Tigers finished just 0.85 points and 5.79 points behind the second and first place finalists respectively.

Gateway Community and Technical College is implementing a new school age childcare certificate program, beginning in the spring semester of 2010. The program includes credit-bearing courses (15 college credit hours) for individuals wishing to pursue a career working with schoolchildren, ages 5 through 12, in group-settings such as before-and-

after school care, full-day school vacation programs and summer camps. The required five courses focus on child development, positive guidance, developmentally appropriate practice and the specific needs and interests of school-age children. The school-age certificate required courses are embedded within the Interdisciplinary Early Childhood

Education program offered at GCTC. It is a great starting point for individuals desiring to work with school-age children, currently working with school age children or continuing to advance their level of education. It is possible to complete the certificate in one or two semesters. However, if a potential student has a current child development

associate credential, they can receive articulated credit for nine credit hours, and need only three classes to complete the certificate. It is also possible to complete this entire credential online. For more information, contact Dr. Susan Santos, Division of Arts, Humanities & Social Science chair, at 859-442-4165.

Tigers make Bellevue see red in regional

By James Weber jweber@nky.com

Cameron Vocke knew he would have to step up in the absence of senior running back Joe Colosimo. Colosimo, sidelined by a knee injury from the week before, would not be available for Beechwood’s Class 1A football playoff game against Bellevue. But Vocke, a sophomore averaging nearly six yards per carry for 368 yards total coming in, was ready for the challenge. Vocke rushed for 175 yards on 15 carries to help the Tigers defeat the rival Tigers of Bellevue, 41-20 in the Region 2 final Nov. 20 in Fort Mitchell. The red Tigers (9-4) travel more than 300 miles to play Mayfield (12-1) in a state semifinal Nov. 27. The winner plays either Lexington Christian or Hazard in the state final Dec. 5 in Bowling Green. Vocke had three touchdowns, including a combination of ballet and wrestling in the third quarter, as he tiptoed the sideline and dragged a tackler into the endzone to make it 35-7. “It’s fun,” Vocke said. “We played hard. It was a good win. I knew it was going to be hard, filling big shoes. Joe Colosimo is good.” The Tigers started off strong, going 81 yards from the opening kickoff to score on a run by senior quarterback Matt Rigdon, who also topped 100 yards on the

Bellevue head coach Dave Eckstein praised Rash’s handling of a younger team. “This is the best job Noel Rash has done coaching,” Eckstein said. “Obviously they have talent, but he has really coached this team into a potential state championship team. Not a lot of people expected that.” Mayfield, who beat Beechwood in the 2002 state final, has a balanced offense that averages 42 points per game. The Cardinals rallied for a 31-28 win over Crittenden County in the Region 1 final.

Saints advance in wild playoff opener By James Weber jweber@nky.com

By Adam Turer eastsports@communitypress.com

The Simon Kenton High School Pioneers fell short in their bid for a return trip to the state championship game. The Pioneers were defeated by Louisville St. Xavier, the top-ranked team in the state in Class 6A, 48-34 Friday, Nov. 20. Simon Kenton had its hands full from the start but made a furious second-half rally and nearly pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in Kentucky state playoff history. The Pioneers had no answer for the Tigers’ potent rushing attack in the first half. St. Xavier got on the board first with a 33-yard touchdown run. The Pioneers responded with a scoring drive, capped by Chad Lawrence’s 14-yard touchdown pass to Jacob Krummen. The duo would connect twice more for touchdowns. The junior wide receiver finished with a season-high seven catches for 79 yards and three scores. He entered the game with just 10 catches and two touchdowns on the season. What looked like a back-andforth shootout quickly turned into a lopsided affair. The ground game took off for the Tigers who responded with 27 unanswered points to take a 34-7 second quarter lead. The Pioneers added two important touchdowns in the final four minutes of the quarter to cut the halftime deficit to 34-20. Down just two scores and with an explosive offense of their own, the Pioneers were far from finished. Simon Kenton chipped away with another score in the third quarter, while the defense figured out a way to hold the Tigers scoreless in the period. The Pioneers had momentum, but suffered a critical loss in the third quarter.

with Jacob Maus for a 47-yard touchdown to give Beechwood a 28-7 halftime lead. Beechwood had won the teams’ regular season meeting, 20-8, on a wet, muddy track on Bellevue’s grass field. This one, played on a cold but dry night on Beechwood’s artificial turf, seemed to favor Beechwood’s speed as the red Tigers rushed for 355 yards. “Our speed is tough to compete with,” Beechwood head coach Noel Rash said. “The moves they

make were pretty special and you can’t do that on that nasty surface. It turned out to be a difference-maker.” Rash praised Vocke for stepping up in the absence of Colosimo, who may be able to return for the state semifinal. “He’s a very blessed soul,” Rash said of Vocke. “He’s just a playmaker and he’s that way on defense, too. He’s a very talented kid and a great team guy. He loves this team. He doesn’t care if he gets one carry or 30.” Beechwood, with a young starting lineup containing many sophomores and juniors, lost its four games to bigger area schools this season. The Tigers, going for their third straight state title, have

Simon Kenton’s running back Miles Simpson gains yardage against Louisville St. Xavier.

Senior running back Miles Simpson suffered an ankle sprain midway through the quarter and did not return. He finished with 112 yards on 20 carries. Lawrence, the junior quarterback who has stepped up in a big way throughout the season, now had to carry the offense without his most dangerous weapon in the backfield. Lawrence did all he could to lead the Pioneers comeback. He connected with Krummen again for a touchdown, cutting the Tigers’ lead to seven. St. Xavier responded with a touchdown, but Lawrence led the Pioneers back down the field. Senior Nik Brown capped the scoring drive with a one-yard run to make it a 41-34 game with 1:42 left to play. Kicker Chris Repka executed the onside kick and Kenneth Lockard recovered for the Pioneers. On the Pioneers’ second play of the drive, Lawrence’s pass was intercepted at the St. Xavier sevenyard line. Two plays later, the Tigers secured the win with a 93-yard touchdown run. It was a valiant effort from Lawrence, who finished with 226 yards and four touchdowns, completing 19 of 32 passes. He also rushed 31 times for 129 yards. Lawrence will be counted on even more next season to lead Simon Kenton’s offense and showed he can get the job done without Simpson. The Pioneers finish the season 11-2 and earned the first district title in program history under head coach Jeff Marksberry.

Jim Hilvert said his Thomas More College football team has yet to play a perfect game this season. The Saints were imperfect enough to nearly blow a 21-point lead, but still good enough to hold on to a 49-39 win over DePauw in an NCAA Division III playoff opener Nov. 21 on TMC’s campus. TMC (11-0), who picked up its second postseason win in its fourth trip to the NCAA playoffs, will host Johns Hopkins at noon Saturday, Nov. 28. The Saints are ranked 10th in the nation. The game will be broadcast locally on ICN22. “The scary thing about all of this is we haven’t played a perfect game,” said Hilvert, the third-year head coach. “If we can play a perfect game we can be a very scary team, and we haven’t done that yet.” The Saints led 28-7 in the second quarter, but their season nearly went up in smoke when DePauw took over at its own 7, trailing 42-39 with 2:08 to play. On DePauw’s third play of the drive, senior Wade Begley (Campbell County) forced a fumble, and freshman cornerback Zach Autenrieb (Elder) scooped up the loose ball and returned it 20 yards for the clinching score. It can be risky not to just fall on the ball in that situation, but Autenrieb knew it was a good risk to take. “I thought about it but I saw nobody in front of me so I just scooped it up and ran it in,” he said. It was Autenrieb’s second defensive score of the game. He intercepted a pass and returned it 30 yards to give TMC that 28-7 advantage in the second quarter. That was his eighth pick of the season - the national leader had nine coming into the postseason. Was he expecting to get this many? “Not at all,” he said. “I thought I’d be lucky to get one.” His first TD wrapped up a near perfect beginning for the Saints, who led 28-10 at the break. On TMC’s opening drive, run-

Cordario Collier fights for yardage during a Thomas More football game Oct. 17. ning back Kendall Owens (La Salle) took a short pass from senior quarterback Trevor Stellman (Conner) and curled away from tacklers to the right sideline before sprinting his way to a 67-yard touchdown. Midway through the first quarter, the Saints went 80 yards on six plays. Stellman threw a 27yard pass to Luis Perez (Anderson), and Owens and Cordario Collier had 20 yards. Collier finished the drive from a yard out to make it 14-0. DePauw scored off a short field after TMC was forced to punt from the back of its endzone. DePauw got the ball back early in the second quarter, but Nick Gramke (Elder) intercepted a pass for TMC. A pass from Stellman to Eric Olthaus (Elder) set up Thomas More at the 20, and Stellman got the remaining yards in two attempts to make it 21-7. Halftime changed the momentum. TMC turnovers set up DePauw for two quick TD drives, cutting the deficit to 28-24, already matching the most points the Saints have given up this season. The Saints struck back on another short pass/long run, as Stellman connected with Chris Farley for a 68-yard score, the longest pass play the Tigers have allowed all year.

That’s when DePauw’s potent passing attack got going. The Tigers scored with three minutes gone in the fourth quarter, getting a two-point conversion on their fourth try after the Saints’ defense committed penalties on the prior three. “They had short fields, and their offense was very effective in the second half,” Hilvert said. “When they got momentum, it carried over.” TMC responded by keeping the ball for nearly six minutes, culminating in the first career TD by freshman back Laymon Carter. Collier had 43 yards on seven attempts in the drive. Following another DePauw score, Saints freshman Austin Studer (Campbell County) recovered an onside kick, but the Saints could not run out the clock, setting up the frantic finish. The Saints were one of 11 unbeaten teams in the nation heading into the 32-team, fiveround tournament. Stellman said that won’t matter when they face Johns Hopkins. “Going 10-0, that’s the pressure,” he said. “Now everybody comes in 0-0. Nobody has a record anymore. We know how good we can be, it’s just about reaching that point.”

GIRLS BASKETBALL PREVIEW

Scott primed for postseason By Adam Turer

eastsports@communitypress.com

The Scott High School Eagles girls’ basketball team is designed to peak late in the season, when it matters most. The Eagles have two veteran leaders in junior forward Lauren Tibbs and senior point Klette guard Kelsey Bamforth. Once the rest of the rotation gets comfortable in the varsity lineup, the Eagles will be in position to compete for a district title. “Once we get some experience, we’ll be pretty balanced,” said head coach Rhonda Klette. Among those in the mix for more playing time this year are Sam Kraft, who returns after a year off, eighth-grader Jill Buntin, and second-year player April Henson. Klette believes that Buntin is the best outside shooter on the team. “Once she gets experience and confidence she’ll be a big contributor,” Klette said. The added depth this season will allow the Eagles to play at a more frenetic pace on defense. Senior Taylor Jackson provides leadership on the defensive end. “We can go nine deep, which will allow us to pressure more on defense,” Klette said. Offensively, the Eagles will try

Their performance in the post will open up the perimeter for sharpshooters Buntin, and senior Sarah Kuhse. “We have tried to push the ball a little bit in the past, but with two good post players inside we will try to work the ball around more in half court sets,” said Klette. “We have much needed depth, improved team speed, and players that can score from the inside and outside.” Rebounding should be a strength at both ends of the court for the Eagles. The 5’9” Jackson is a hard-working, athletic rebounder who will compete with taller opponents for every loose ball. The 6’4” Tibbs is approaching the school record for rebounds and should break it this year. She will likely have a chance to break the school scoring record by the end of her senior year. She averaged 23.5 points and 10.8 rebounds per game as a sophomore. The biggest improvement the Eagles need to make this year is taking better care of the basketball. Playing an up-tempo offense the past few seasons has led to too many turnovers. By slowing down the offense and entrusting a trio of talented ball-handlers with the rock, Klette feels that her team will improve upon its biggest weakness.

“We have players that can handle pressure which has been or weakness in the past,” said Klette. Bamforth will be the primary ball-handler. Henson, senior Brittany Kendall, and freshman Landon Brefeld will help Bamforth beat the pressure of opposing defenses. The Eagles open the regular season with three straight road games, starting on Dec. 1 at Pendleton County. One of the biggest tests of the season comes early with a trip to Ryle on Dec. 7. The Eagles host region 10 rival Clark County on Dec. 22 before playing in Pulaski County’s holiday tournament. By that time, Klette hopes her experienced veterans will be receiving plenty of help from their new supporting cast. “Our goal is to contend for the 10th region title,” Klette said. “Once we get everyone in rhythm and playing with confidence, I believe we can make a run at the regional final.”

The Villa Madonna Blue Lightning return three starters from last year’s 20-8 girls’ basketball squad. All three scored in double figures last year per game. After losing in the 34th District semifinals to St. Henry last season (46-40), the Blue Lightning hope to take that next step and qualify for the Ninth Region tournament. Senior center Amy Kreutzer averaged 12.8 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.9 steals a game while shooting 53 percent from the floor. Senior guard Kim Schroer averaged 12.7 points, 4.7 assists and 2.5 steals per game. She set the school career records in threepointers and assists last season.

Head coach Jeff Stowers has three returning veterans in guards Sydni Wainscott and Allison Ponzer, and forward Nikki Brown. Wainscott averaged 8.5 points and 2.5 assists a game last year. Ponzer, a senior guard, posted 6.2 points per game and is a quick defender. Sophomore forward Hannah Stephenson should be an impact player who Stowers called one of the most talented he has had in the program. Junior center Kayla Blevins is also a likely new starter.

Andy Elkus returns for his second year as head coach of the Dixie Heights High School girls’ basketball team. He returns two starters from last year’s 6-20 team that lost to Ludlow in the 34th District Tournament.

The Colonels lost five seniors from last year’s squad. The returning starters are senior guard Karli Rader and senior forward Kayla Bowman. Forward Deandra Jackson also provided senior leadership. Elkus said the top newcomers are junior center Katie Elkus, sophomore

guard Meredith Hartfiel and sophomore forward Kayla Eiben. Coach Elkus hopes the senior leadership and talented underclassmen can lift the etam to contention in the highly competitive 34th District. Dixie has its traditional home opener Dec. 1-5 in its Dixie Heights Invitational, the longest running girls’ basketball tourney in Northern Kentucky and second longest in the state.

Giving Kentucky kids a healthy start in life

Few things are as clear-cut or urgent as the need to get Kentucky’s children off to a healthy start in life. One, whether you’re a parent or a politician, it’s a moral obligation. I firmly believe that. Two, Kentucky’s future depends on our ability to create a talented, inquisitive and productive work force. One year ago, my administration launched an aggressive plan to tackle head on one of the biggest hurdles to our children’s and our state’s future: Lack of health insurance. Numbers showed some 67,000 children lacked health coverage – even though they were eligible for programs like the Kentucky Children’s Health Insurance Plan (KCHIP) or Medicaid. So we set an initial goal of signing up 35,000 of those uninsured children by June 30, 2010. I’m thrilled to say that we expect to reach that mark six months ahead of schedule.

Since the beginning of this initiative, about 32,000 additional children have enrolled in the KCHIP and Medicaid proGov. Steve grams, at an of Beshear average 2,600 children Community per month. That Recorder more than douguest bles the monthcolumnist ly enrollment numbers of the previous year. Current rates indicate that, when the numbers for December are tallied, we will have achieved our initial enrollment goal. Many steps were taken to achieve this ambitious goal: We eliminated the face-to-face interview, shortened the application and made it available online. We amended the re-enrollment process to give families more time

to supply the required information. We trained more than 2,500 people on the new application process, and increased the availability of enrollment materials – in both English and Spanish. In addition, the Cabinet for Health and Family Services intensified efforts to re-enroll children who had previously been covered by the programs. And finally, we expanded our outreach through health-care providers, community-action agencies, day-care centers, faithbased organizations and a backto-school media campaign. Results like this only happen when a community – including schools, health providers, non-profit and faith-based organizations and various other partners and supporters – rallies around a mission and truly works together on an idea much larger than themselves. But now is no time to rest. We must increase our commitment and our energy.

Much of the cost of signing up the additional children came from federal stimulus funds that end Dec. 31, 2010. The General Assembly and I must find ways to replace those funds. Fortunately, there’s little doubt those upfront costs are more than offset by long-term benefits - healthier children do better in school and suffer fewer long-term health issues. Furthermore, we still haven’t reached every eligible family, and their numbers continue to be inflated by the ravages of this tumultuous national economy that have cost too many of our families their jobs, their homes and their ability to access quality, affordable health care. Families across the state are tightening their belts, making difficult financial decisions in order to survive. State government is going through the same process. Over the last two years we’ve cut some $800 million in spending as we’ve shrunk our focus to core

priorities like education, public safety and health care for the most vulnerable. We will continue to cut spending – and we will have to, given an upcoming budget that figures to be one of the most difficult ever. But we will not – we must not – turn our backs on our children, especially our most vulnerable children. Kentucky’s economic future hinges on our ability to prepare our children – all of our children, from the inner-most city apartment to the deepest mountain holler – for an increasingly sophisticated and demanding world. We’ve made great strides in making sure our children have access to health care, and we will continue that effort. In doing so, we fulfill our obligation to not just our children but to ourselves. Steve Beshear is governor of Kentucky.

If so, how early do you go? “No. We won't be out shopping this year because we have a different tradition. Our family bakes Christmas cookies on the day after Thanksgiving.” A.H. “No way! I can't stand the long check-out lines and limited parking! I do most of my Christmas shopping online these days. I usually find the best prices online and often get free shipping.” R.K. “I always do although I buy less each year. It is more about the experience and kicking off my holiday shopping than it is about getting it all done. I find a few great bargains every year that make it worth getting up at 5 a.m. on my day off.” J.H., Florence “I may participate this year in Black Friday although I have usually worked in the past and would not have wasted a day off. However,

I am nuts!” N.C. “No, I do not plan to shop on Black Friday. I plan to shop as little as possible. If I have to shop, I prefer to do it at a time when others are not shopping.” G.G. “No, my shopping is done. The stores offer big sales and they have no extra help at the registers or sales people to help you find things; it's a total madhouse and I don't want to get run over in the stampede!” Duke “No, I hate the crowds!”

K.P.

It may come as a surprise in light of our current economy and our highest unemployment rates in 25 years, but the demand for highly skilled young people continues to be great and the jobs are likely to offer competitive wages and benefits. The Chamber of Commerce hears regularly from its members that it needs employees who are highly skilled in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and that their need for employees with these skills will increase in the future. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly 75 percent of tomorrow’s jobs will require the use of computers, while fewer than 33 percent of participants in computer courses and related activities are girls. In fact, only 20 percent of Information Technology professionals are women. This means there is tremendous opportunity for a young girl in our area dreaming to be tomorrow’s scientist, mathematician, engineer, or computer science wizard. To address these concerns, there is an effort under way in Kentucky through the Kentucky Girls STEM Collaborative to increase the opportunities and awareness of STEM (Science,

Te c h n o l o g y, Engineering and Mathematics) careers among female students. The demand for these high level skills is fueled by Gary Beatrice advances in Community technology that many Recorder benefit different indusguest tries. Industries columnist ranging from manufacturing to medicine rely on experts in each of these areas to conduct their business in the most efficient and cost effective way possible. These are wonderful times to be in but there needs to be a talented and skilled workforce to continue the momentum that has already begun. However, these opportunities are not attracting the interest of young girls. According to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, women constitute 45 percent in the workforce in the U.S., but hold just 12 percent of science and engineering jobs in business and industry. The Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce is partnering

with the Kentucky Girls STEM Collaborative at University of Kentucky, to discuss this concern at a special forum this month. The forum is expected to create awareness of STEM careers as options for girls, strengthen the connection to industry needs related to STEM careers and highlight successful STEM initiatives in Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati. The presenting sponsor is General Cable. Presenting partners are the Education Alliance of Northern Kentucky; Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce; The Kentucky Girls STEM Collaborative; University of Kentucky; National Science Foundation and National Girls Collaborative Project. It’s time to encourage our daughters, sisters, nieces, grand daughters and other young women to consider a career with a very promising future that benefits not only them, but the future of our businesses and communities. Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce chairman Gary Beatrice is president of Business Benefits/Hammerlein Garner.

Dad melts my heart. This strong belief in Santa should make all of us feel better about life. In a world so full of skepticism, it’s refreshing to see how many children remain faithful to their belief in Santa. The letters mean a lot to Santa, too. He treasures every last drop of ink! The letters make Santa feel good and it makes all his hard work worthwhile. So, thank you to everyone who submitted a letter and a very Merry Christmas!

You did a Trenton great job getting me everything I wanted and things I didn’t even know I wanted until I saw them. My mom and dad told me that I have been a good boy so far this year, so they helped me write this letter to you. I hope you read it in the Erlanger Recorder and remember that I will have milk and cookies waiting for you as usual. I have been helping my mom around the house with some chores and have been doing a good job in preschool this year at my new school.

Text-messaging God on Thanksgiving Day (To be prayed alone or with others before the main Thanksgiving meal.) Lord God, as children of our culture we are seldom at peace with what we have. We are more conscious of what we do not have and believe our happiness will come from having more. We gather together today, however, to thank you for all you have given us and for all that others have given us. Help us each day to take delight in the simple things of life, appreciate the love of those close to us, and

acknowledge how fortunate we really are. W e r e c a l l today the of Father Lou words the GerGuntzelman man mysPerspectives tic, Meister Eckhart, who said, “If the only prayer you ever say in your life is ‘Thanks!’ that will suffice.” He knew that to genuinely experience gratitude,

we must realize first of all that we have received, from whom we have received, and that ultimately every good thing in our lives comes from a beneficent God. So, for reasons known only in the stillness of our grateful hearts, each of us can our own the following Thanksgiving Day prayer:

O Divine Giver of Gifts

I stand beneath an endless waterfall of your abundant gifts to me. I thank you especially

for the blessing of life itself, the most precious of all your gifts to me. I thank you, Ever-Generous One, for clothing to wear, for food and drink to nourish my body, for books and music, for the ability to give and receive love, for all the talents and skills you’ve bestowed upon me. I thank you for the many joys of my life, for my family and my friends, for work that gives me a sense of purpose and invests my life with meaning.

I thank you as well for the sufferings and trials of my life, which in a paradoxical way, are also your gifts- and which, together with my mistakes, are among my most important teachers. I thank you for all my deceased relatives and friends who, over many generations, have contributed in unimaginable ways and helped bring me to this day and to become the person I am. Grant that I may never greet a new day without the awareness of some gift

for which to give your thanks, O God. And may constant thanksgiving be my song until I sing it forever in your heaven of endless gifts and love, Amen Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Reach him at s or contact him directly at P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242. Please include a mailing address or fax number if you wish for him to respond.

Be alarmed if you haven’t tested your security system Many people have home security systems to protect them in the event of a fire or break-in. But, if you have such a system, when was the last time you checked to make sure it is being properly monitored? If it’s been awhile, you could be in for a rude awakening. John Witmer of Florence relies on his security system to not only sound an alarm in his neighborhood but call the police or fire department if necessary. “We moved here in 1989, and we had the alarm system installed when we moved in. The house had already been hard-wired for it, so we just activated it with the Rollins Company,” said Witmer. The contract called for continuous monitoring of the alarm system at a

monthly cost of $26. “We know it worked because one of our Howard Ain neighbors came in Hey Howard! one time with a key, inadvertently while we were gone, and the police and fire department showed up to harass her – so we know the system functioned,” he said. In 1997, Security Link took over from Rollins and four years later ADT bought them out. “The only contact we had with ADT – they made a phone call and asked us how we wanted to be billed, a check deduction or send a bill, and we wanted a bill,” Witmer said.

They continued to receive and pay monitoring bills for eight years until, “A couple of weeks ago my wife inadvertently bumped into our emergency medical button and the alarm went off in the house,” Witmer said. They turned off the alarm and called ADT to say it was a false alarm.“We called, they answered and said, ‘What event.’ Well, one thing led to another and we started testing the system,” Witmer said. The problem is, although ADT was now billing Witmer, the alarm system was still programmed to call a now non-existent phone number at Rollins. So, although ADT was billing for monitoring, it really wasn’t able to receive the call. Witmer says he’s learned a valuable lesson.

“We were just flabbergasted to find out we weren’t being monitored,” said Witmer. Because so many years have elapsed since he signed that Rollins contract, there’s no documentation to show which type of monitoring service plan Witmer had signed up for – the company periodic testing or customer testing.

ADT has now offered to refund some of Witmer’s money, put in a new system, and provide three years worth of free monitoring. Bottom line, no matter which company you have, you need to have periodic tests of your home security system to make sure everything is working. But first call the alarm company to say you’re

Cranberry celebration salad like Kroger

This recipe is one that I get requests for each year. And it’s a keeper for sure. Kroger’s salad has a loose texture, and both Ginny and Marilyn replicated this. Most likely, Ginny’s is closer to what I tasted at Kroger, since hers uses whole cranberry sauce. But both sound equally good.

Ginny Moorehouse’s cranberry celebration salad:

“I’ve been making this for years for my family,” Ginny said. 1 pkg. cherry or strawberry Jell-O 1 cup boiling liquid: 1⁄2 cup each orange juice and water 13⁄4 cups cranberry sauce, jellied type 1 cup diced celery (optional but good) 1 ⁄2 cup chopped walnuts 3 ⁄4 cup crushed drained pineapple Dissolve Jell-O in boiling liquid. Add cranberry sauce

and blend. When it starts to congeal, add other ingredients. This will not get real firm.

Marilyn Hoskin’s cranberry celebration salad:

Try substituting cherry Jell-O if you like.

15 oz. crushed pineapple, drained – save juice 1 ⁄2 cup cranberry juice 2 tablespoons lemon juice 1 pkg., 3 oz., raspberry Jell-O 15 oz. can whole cranberry sauce 1 ⁄2 cup chopped walnuts Boil pineapple, cranberry and lemon juice together. Add Jell-O. Remove from heat and stir in cranberries. Put in refrigerator until almost set. Add pineapple and nuts. Add a half cup of chopped celery if you like.

Rita’s ‘like’ Frisch’s pumpkin pie

I’ve shared this before and the requests for it come in on a regular basis this time of year. When I was first trying to clone this, I called Frisch’s and the word from Karen Maier, VP of marketing, was that the recipe is proprietary. Karen did say Frisch’s uses only pumpkin (read the label on your can of pumpkin purée – it could have winter squash included as they are members of the pumpkin family and can be used interchangeably). They hold their puréed pumpkin for a year in the can – and that “ages” it and makes a nicely set pie. They also add cornstarch for the same reason. The main ingredients are not unlike what you’d make at home, just hugely different proportions and “secret” spices. Here’s as close as I can get. I’ll add a half teaspoon or so of cornstarch if I’m using home canned pumpkin, as it’s a bit looser than purchased pumpkin. If you want, add more of the spices to your taste.

Chili reception

“Wow! The recipes for Fern Storer’s chili are still coming in, and the best part is the stories that go with them. I think she’s up in heaven ladling up a batch right now …” 1 can, 15 oz., pure pumpkin purée 1 can, 12 oz., evaporated milk 3 ⁄4 cup sugar 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice 3 ⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon 1 ⁄2 teaspoon salt 2 eggs, slightly beaten Whisk pumpkin, milk, sugar and spices together. Add salt and eggs and blend. Pour into pastrylined pan. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes; lower temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until set. Serves eight.

Correction

Part of the taffy apple salad recipe was inadvertantly omitted last week in the newspaper. The full directions should have been: “Drain pineapple, keep juice. Mix pineapple chunks and marshmallows, refrigerate overnight. In saucepan over low heat, heat juice, sugar, flour, egg and vinegar. Stir continually and cook until thick. Refrigerate overnight. Next day, combine Cool Whip, flour mixture, pineapple mixture, apples and nuts. Makes a large bowl. ”

Provident makes bookkeeping easy By Regan Coomer

Taylor Mill resident Diane Patton hopes to allow business owners to do what they do best.

rcoomer@nky.com

REGAN COOMER/STAFF

Provident Bookkeeping Services owner Diane Patton hopes to take the stress off of local business owners.

Certified bookkeeper Diane Patton wants to relieve the financial stress of small business owners. The Taylor Mill resident started her own business, Provident Bookkeeping Services, in October. Patton has 14 years of public and private accounting experience. “During these hard economic times everyone’s looking at either cutting costs or trying to find ways to save money. I decided I would try to specialize in helping small businesses with 20 or fewer employ-

ees,” Patton said. Patton hopes to allow business owners to do what they do best. “Instead of having to focus on keeping track of books and finances, they can out-source it to someone like me and focus on their business and keep it up and running,” she said. Business owners can also save money on employee benefits, training

and time, she said. Patton wants to take the mystery out of finances for local businesses by going through their finances and explaining ‘This is where you’re at, this is what you need to do to help your business grow,’” she said. Provident Bookkeeping Services is equipped to do monthly write-ups of revenue and expenses, financial statements, accounts payable and receivable, getting paperwork ready for auditors and more. If business owners would prefer to take care of the financial side of business themselves, but aren’t

sure how to go about it, Patton is also a QuickBooks accounting software certified adviser. “Some businesses prefer to do it on their own, but they may not understand the program,” she said. Provident Bookkeeping Services is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, call 431-0168 or email provident@fuse.net.

Girl Scouts honor Northern Kentuckians with the Distinguished Citizen Medal Four exceptional individuals were recognized with the Girl Scout Distinguished Citizen Medal for their outstanding contributions to youth in their communities. The recipients are chosen for their ability to envision a higher quality of life for youth and for acting to accomplish this vision. The recipients of the 12th annual Distinguished Citizen Medal all played vital roles in advancing the educational opportunities for Kentucky youth. They are: Kim Banta, Judy Clabes, Gee Gaither and Dr. Barbara Stonewater. Gee Gaither, lead recruiter for the Northern Kentucky Reading Camp, works with third- and 4th grade students who are a year behind in their reading levels to help them gain

The recipients are chosen for their ability to envision a higher quality of life for youth. confidence. “It is with the hard work and dedication of Ms. Gee [Gaither] that this camp can continue to reach out to students each year with the hopes that we are able to change the paths of some of these kids,” said Hillie Gaither, Gaither’s daughter. Dr. Barbara Stonewater, former director of the Northern Kentucky Council of Partners in Education, feels that youth, mainly girls, need to continue to strive for excellence. “We know women hold top positions in many organizations in this

area, but we still have some glass ceilings to break. Girl Scouts is one of the organizations that can continue to help girls move forward,” Dr. Stonewater said. “I have had a lifelong respect for the Girl Scouts and their impact on hundreds of thousands of girls.” Judy Clabes, past editor of the Kentucky Post and past CEO of the Scripps Howard Foundation said, “Girl Scouts, for me, reinforces other pieces I pick up along life’s way – the value of friendships, teamwork and service. The value of belonging and being part of something bigger than yourself. For all these things, I am truly grateful for what Girl Scouts did for me and for what it continues to do for girls everywhere.”

Kim Banta, Barbara Stonewater, Gee Gaither and Judy Clabes received the 12th annual Distinguished Citizen Medal from Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road Council. Kim Banta, principal at Dixie Heights High School, Judy Clabes, Dr. Barbara Stonewater and Gee Gaither have helped to make the world a better place which is the Girl Scout mission

–building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. The 2009 Distinguished Citizen Medals were awarded Nov. 10 at the Fort

Mitchell Country Club. The event featured a silent auction, dinner and award ceremony. The Distinguished Citizenship Medal was created in 1998.

SERVICE NOTE ROTC graduate

Edmond C. Preisser graduated from the Army ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) Leader Development and Assessment Course, also known as "Operation Warrior Forge," at Fort Lewis, Tacoma, Wash. The 32 days of training provide

ST A F THE

the best possible professional training and evaluation for all cadets in the aspects of military life, administration and logistical support. Although continued military training and leadership development is included in the curriculum, the primary focus of the course is to develop and eval-

uate each cadet's officer potential as a leader by exercising the cadet's intelligence, common sense, ingenuity and physical stamina. The cadet command assesses each cadet's performance and progress in officer traits, qualities and professionalism while attending the course.

Cadets in their junior and senior year of college must complete the leadership development course. Upon successful completion of the course, the ROTC program, and graduation from college, cadets are commissioned as second lieutenants in the U.S. Army, National Guard, or Reserve.

The cadet is a student at the Virginia Military Institute, Lexington. He is the son of David and Geraldine N. Preisser of Flourney Court, Crescent Springs. Preisser is a 2006 graduate of Dixie Heights High School, Edgewood.

Freestore Foodbank kicks off drive Cancer society This holiday season will be the busiest and most critical time in the Freestore Foodbank’s 38-year history. That was the message John Young, president and CEO of the Freestore Foodbank, shared Nov. 10 during a press conference at the organization’s Mayerson Distribution Center in Bond Hill. According to Young, economic factors have led to an increased demand for assistance year-round. “This year has already been one of the busiest on record for the Freestore Foodbank, an unsettling trend that is likely to continue through the holidays and the foreseeable future,” said Young. “The need has increased so dramatically and at such a fast pace, it has been difficult to keep up.” The statistics shared by Young during this morning’s press conference included the following: • Between the start of the 2006 fiscal year and the end of the 2009 fiscal year (which ended in June, 2009), client visits to the Liberty Street Emergency Client Services Center rose

52 percent. • In 2009, the number of families the Freestore Foodbank feeds each month has risen 6.5 percent over last year. On average, 3,090 families visited the Freestore Foodbank each month through October of 2009, a number that is expected to increase dramatically during the holidays. • Anecdotally, many of the Freestore Foodbank’s 350 member agencies tell the organization they, too, are experiencing increased demand for assistance. • Thanksgiving and Christmas food distributions have been steadily rising over the past several years, and experienced 20 percent growth between 2007 and 2008. • The Freestore Foodbank’s 2009 holiday food box distribution – which will take place in the three days prior to thanksgiving and Christmas – will be the largest in the organization’s history. • The Freestore Foodbank expects to distribute more than 630,000 pounds of food to feed approximately 18,000 families, com-

prised of 49,000 individuals. • Half of the individuals served through the Freestore Foodbank’s holiday efforts will be children. This morning’s press conference was held to officially kick off the Freestore Foodbank’s annual holiday fundraising campaign. Themed Hunger is Unacceptable, the campaign runs through January 31 and has a goal of raising $2 million – an increase of $500,000 as compared to last year’s fundraising goal, due in large part to the increased number of people the organization now serves yearround. Young offered several suggestions to Tristate residents who would like to get involved. “Over the next two months, many area businesses will work with the Freestore Foodbank to help raise hunger awareness in the Tristate,” he said. “Kroger, Bigg’s, Whole Foods and LaRosa’s have all partnered with the Freestore Foodbank in our fundraising efforts. We hope the Greater Cincinnati community will show us the

same outpouring of generosity that we have experienced in years past.” Individuals who are interested in learning more about the Freestore Foodbank’s Hunger is Unacceptable fundraising campaign should visit www.FreestoreFoodbank.org. There, they can get a behind-the-scenes look at the day-to-day operations, make a donation and learn about volunteer opportunities. Members of the community can track the campaign’s progress via Twitter at www.twitter.com/freestore_fb and on Facebook (search for Freestore Foodbank fan page). Those interested in donating gifts of food, clothing and cash may do so during business hours (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays; 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays) at the Freestore Foodbank’s Emergency Client Services Center, located at 112 East Liberty St. in Over-theRhine. The Freestore Foodbank also accepts donations via phone at 513-482-FOOD (3663) and online via its Web site.

gala goes Western

Saddle up, partner, and get ready to ride out west for the American Cancer Society’s annual gala to help raise awareness and funds in the fight against cancer. What was formerly the society’s longstanding gala event known as the Striders’ Ball has taken on a Western twist for 2010. The Baron’s Ball will be held April 24 at the METS Center in Erlanger. “We want to let everyone know about the Baron’s Ball so they can dust off their cowboy boots and shine up their belt buckles,” said Louise Kent, event chairperson. “The ball will have an upscale country theme to it. Cowboys can come wearing their boots and blue jeans, just add a black tie and a cowboy hat,” she said. Plans are still under way for the Baron’s Ball with an upscale, Western-style chuck wagon dinner and dancing. Also planned are oldtime photographs for guests, games and a

mechanical bull for those “urban cowboys.” The event will help in the American Cancer Society’s fight against cancer and its mission to save lives and celebrate more birthdays by helping people stay well, by helping people get well, by finding cures and by fighting back. “The Striders’ Ball has been a huge success for us,” said Jamie Webb, executive director with the Northern Kentucky office of the American Cancer Society. “The switch to the Baron’s Ball offers a new take on our gala event that will let folks come out and kick up their heels for the cause of saving lives and celebrating more birthdays,” said Webb. For more information on the Baron’s Ball, contact Kristen Cline at 859-3727873 or e-mail her at Kristen.Cline@cancer.org.

Kyrgyz University administrators tap NKY financial aid knowledge Dan Bisig usually helps Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati families understand college financial aid and how to get their fair share. But the owner of College and Beyond now has made his presentation to 10 university administrators from Kyrgyzstan. They were in the Cincinnati area for three weeks to learn about how American higher education functions, courtesy of USAID’s Community Connections program. Their goal is to help their country, formerly part of the Soviet Union, transition from the old Soviet model of education to a new freemarket system. The cost of pursuing a bachelor’s degree at a public university in Kyrgyzstan ranges from U.S. $400 to $800 per year. It’s around $2,000 per year at the country’s only private university, modeled after an American university. For comparison, the salary of a Ph.D. professor is about $100 per month. Other faculty receive $50 to $100 per month. No financial aid system exists, although 5,500 stu-

College and Beyond owner Dan Bisig with 10 Kyrgyz university administrators who learned from him about the U.S. financial aid system. dents can attend college free if they are top students, if they pursue a specialty in which workers are needed or they agree to work in rural areas.

For example, there are about 3,400 cost-free spots open for teachers going to rural schools. The number of student slots in each specialty is

determined by the Kyrgyz Ministry of Education according to calculations figuring anticipated needs. During their Greater Cincinnati program, the

PROVIDED

Kyrgyz group visited a variety of educational institutions such as Northern Kentucky University, Berea College, the University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati State

and Ohio State University. The comprehensive program gives them the opportunity to learn from their American counterparts about topics such as university governance, strategic planning, university finance, accreditation, admissions, faculty qualifications and technology. The Community Connections program is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), with World Learning as the programming agent. As the local training organization, the Greater Cincinnati World Affairs Council is designing and conducting this Community Connections program, its 44th. The broad public diplomacy goals of Community Connections are to contribute to economic and democratic reform and to promote mutual understanding in Eurasia, providing visitors broad exposure to U.S. society and helping create personal connections with Americans and advancing democratic and free-market principles in a region where these principles are still tenuous.

Report: Most ready for kindergarten United Way of Greater Cincinnati Success By 6 has released the second edition of its “Successful Starts” report, which pinpoints the progress local young children are or are not making on a broad range of indicators tied to their well-being, development and kindergarten readiness. The report covers results on 15 indicators that show more children are prepared for kindergarten, a top priority for United Way. Positive indicators include an increased commitment to lead screening, reducing the risk of poisoning and the likelihood of early intervention for exposed children. Findings also show quality home visitation for parents of very young children is leading to results, but too few families are accessing the services before their children turn 3 years old. Other indicators show impressive growth in the number of early childhood programs taking part in Ohio's quality rating system, Step Up To Quality, and improvements in literacy readiness for incoming kindergarteners in Northern Kentucky and Southwest Ohio. The region continues to experience high rates of low birth weight babies, putting too many children at risk of developmental delays and other health concerns. Greater Cincinnati's infant mortality rate is also higher than the nation's average. The report says this is an indication that young children in our region are not getting optimal health care. Declining rates of prenatal care also show a critical need for education and an expansion of health services for pregnant women. The report was presented Oct. 13 to more than 125 people, including business

leaders, educators, agency partners, investors and early childhood advocates and supporters. Presenters included Joan Lombardi, a deputy assistant secretary for the Administration for Children and Families at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Jim Zimmerman, founding chair of Success By 6 Vickie Gluckman, Hamilton County Success By 6 Executive Committee chair, Rob Reifsnyder, United Way of Greater Cincinnati president and CEO and Stephanie Byrd, Success By 6 executive director. “The economic downturn of the past year or so is having a significant impact on the families that need resources most,” said Byrd. “We're working to help fill some of the gaps made by state and local budget cuts, because closing programs and cutting back on professional development could reverse our progress in improving early childhood education and kindergarten readiness.” Success By 6 supports work tied to two proven strategies, including increasing access to best practice home visitation and supporting participation in state-sponsored quality rating systems. The latter of those strategies helps increase access to high quality childhood education programs. Success By 6 also works closely with many local school districts and programs across the region to assess outcomes and implement strategies that will result in adequately preparing more children for kindergarten. “Continued support from United Way will expand access to home visitation and improve the quality of early childhood education,” says Gluckman. “Regard-

less of what happens to the economy, we will continue to champion policies that advocate for maintaining basic services for children and families, as well as inform decision makers about the work being done in Greater Cincinnati and leverage resources to develop additional funding to support these efforts.” Successful Starts, Second Edition is a collaborative effort among the Hamilton County, Northern Kentucky, Middletown area and Eastern area Success By 6 teams. The effort included data collection support from the Child Policy Research Center, Hamilton County Help Me Grow, Every Child Succeeds, Hamilton County Job & Family Services, St. Elizabeth Healthcare, Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, Ohio Chapter March of Dimes, Northern Kentucky Health Department, Community Solutions, United Way of Greater Cincinnati, Every Child Succeeds, 4C for Children and Strive.

Hospice gala raises $140,000 don Bleu, and parties with food personally prepared by Jean-Robert and Marilyn Harris. “This was my first year to attend Hospice of the Bluegrass - Northern Kentucky’s fall gala,” said Peggy Brooks, nursing supervisor at Cincinnati Hematology Oncology in Edgewood, a first time sponsor of the event. “I didn’t know it would be so beautifully presented,” Brooks said. “The silent auction was more impressive than any I’d ever seen, and the food was delicious. There was so much attention to detail, from the huge lighted Eiffel Tower that hung over the dining area to the street artist to the music everything lived up to the invitation’s claim – Spend the night in Paris right here in Northern Kentucky!” Event co-chairs Melba Bjornson and Cora Bowling have been finalizing the

event’s aftermath and are excited about its success. “We have a great committee all of whom have devoted countless hours toward this evening,” said Villa Hills resident Bjornson, also a board member of Hospice of the Bluegrass. “This is our largest annual fund raising event, and some pretty sound preliminary results indicate that this year through our generous sponsors, advertisers, donors and patrons, the event generated over $140,000 in support for Hospice of the Bluegrass Northern Kentucky.” Northern Kentucky Director Carla Foster added, “All proceeds from this event stay in Northern Kentucky and are applied directly to patient care. We provide quality end-of-life and palliative care services to an average of 155 patients daily. We never refuse service because of a patient or

family’s inability to pay, and we provide the only pediatric hospice care to the Northern Kentucky area. We are grateful to everyone – sponsors, attendees, staff, volunteers, and, especially, the de Cavels and the Development Committee, who made Nov. 14 at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center truly, truly magnifique! As our guests left the party they passed pictures of former Hospice of the Bluegrass patients who had left their indelible impressions on their families and us. They are why we do what we do for this wonderfully caring community. We are proud of our association with Northern Kentucky for the last 14 years and value each and every patient and family we have the privilege to serve.” Hospice of the Bluegrass - Northern Kentucky is located at 7388 Turfway Road in Florence.

It is possible to spread holiday cheer without breaking the bank. example, no gifts over $10, $20 or $50. When families stick to the rule, everyone saves and no one feels bad or embarrassed that they didn’t spend more. • Communicate with Younger Kids – The holidays are about much more than gifts. Remind younger children about the true meaning of the season and make it clear why expensive gifts aren’t needed, especially in the current economic climate. It’s also the perfect time to start new family traditions that don’t center on exchanging gifts. • Homemade Décor Feels Like Home – There’s no need to go overboard on decorations. Making your own can be both economical and environmentally friendly. A little paint, glitter and a few pine cones are a fast and festive way to spruce up your holiday décor. And don’t forget about last year’s decorations. If they’re in good shape, don’t purchase new versions just because it’s a new season. • Holiday Parties on a Budget – Being the host doesn’t mean the entire party should be on your dime. Throw a potluck and ask guests to bring their own beverages. These types of invitations are perfectly acceptable and can save a lot of cash. Or, just keep things small and intimate with your family and closest friends – your guests will appreciate just being together. Good conversation and laughter is free. • Create a Spending Plan and Stick to it – Before starting your seasonal shopping, determine how much money you have available for holiday spending. Create a list of gift recipients, set a budget for each gift and write down gift ideas before you set foot in a store. Allowing time for planning and comparison shopping will help you find the best selection and price. To find more money-saving tips, visit www.take chargeamerica.org.

Volunteers needed to assist children Six Kenton County Citizen Foster Care Review Boards and the Harrison/ Pendleton County Citizen Foster Care Review Board are seeking volunteers to make a difference in the lives of local children in foster care. Volunteers are needed to review cases of children placed in foster care because of abuse, dependency and neglect to ensure these children are placed in safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible. Volunteers are not required to reside in the county where a board meets. The Kentucky General Assembly created the Citizen Foster Care Review Board, or CFCRB, in 1982 as a way to decrease the time children spend in foster care. CFCRB volunteers review Cabinet for Health and Family Services files on children placed in out-of-home care

and work with the cabinet and the courts on behalf of the state’s foster children. All volunteers must complete a six-hour initial training session and consent to a criminal record and central registry check. A recommendation is then made to the chief judge of the District Court or Family Court for appointment. The Harrison/Pendleton County CFCRB meets quarterly on the last Monday of the month. Meetings take place in Cynthiana and Falmouth. Meetings in Cynthiana are at 10 a.m. and meetings in Falmouth are at 1 p.m. Kenton County CFCRBs meet monthly. The meeting schedule is as follows: • Kenton County A, fourth Tuesday, 4:30 p.m., Covington • Kenton County B, third Thursday, 11 a.m., Covington • Kenton County C, third Wednesday, 10 a.m., Covington • Kenton County D, first Monday, noon, Newport • Kenton County E,

Douglas-firs, Fraser firs popular Kenton County Question: Which variety of Christmas tree will hold its needles the best for the holidays? Answer : In Kentucky, many Christmas tree farmers plant white pine and Scotch pine. The white pine retains its needles, which have a soft, flexible texture. The trees are often sheared into a pyramidal shape, though this often makes the tree very dense, which makes it difficult to hang large ornaments. The Scotch pine’s needles are shorter than those of the white pine and the color can vary from bright green to dark green to some trees that exhibit more bluish tones. The species retains its needles well and resists drying. Douglas-firs and Fraser firs are also popular choices at local tree lots. The Douglas-fir has dark green or blue green needles that are shorter and softer than pine needles. Shearing gives it a denser form than the Fraser, which is a naturally pyramid-shaped tree, with even

shorter needles than the Douglas. Both trees have good needle retention and a pleasant Mike Klahr scent. Another Community Recorder fir that has grown guest been locally in columnist recent years is the Canaan Fir, which also makes a great, soft-textured, pleasantly scented tree. Spruces are also sold, but they usually don’t hold their needles as long as other species. For the freshest tree, the ideal choice is one you cut yourself from a local tree farm. The Kentucky Christmas Tree Association has a list of member tree farms on their Web site, www.kychristmastreefarms.com. This site also provides detailed information about each variety of Christmas tree. If buying a tree from a tree lot, there are two simple

tests to check for freshness. Bend one of the tree’s green needles. If the needle snaps rather than bends, the tree is dry. If the tree is a reasonable size, lift it a foot or so and thump the base of the trunk on the ground. If green needles fall out, the tree is too dry. If you see brown needles fall out, don’t worry. Those are last year’s needles and are naturally shed by the tree. If you plan to cut your own tree from a local tree farm, don’t be in a rush to do it too early in the season. Cutting it later rather than earlier will insure that the tree stays fresh throughout the entire holiday season. However, if you plan to purchase a tree from a tree lot, it might be better to purchase that tree early for the purpose of getting it in water and out of drying weather conditions as soon as possible. Transporting a tree from either farm or lot can expose it to drying conditions. Ask to have the tree tied with

twine or placed in a sleeve of plastic netting. This will allow less surface area to be exposed to the elements during the trip. Once you get your lotpurchased tree home, it’s a good idea to cut off one or two inches from the bottom of the trunk. Place the tree in a bucket of warm water and store it away from drying sun or wind, preferably in a garage or enclosed sun porch. Gradually move the tree into the house, to minimize shock from a drastic change in temperature. In the house, be careful to place your tree away from sources of heat such as fireplaces, stoves, heat registers or radiators. Keeping the thermostat set at a lower temperature will help to prevent the tree from drying out too quickly. Keep the tree well-watered. A fresh tree can easily drink a gallon or more of water each day, so using a tree-stand that holds at least that much water will make your job easier. Mike Klahr is the Boone County Extension Agent for Horticulture.

And we do so in the most effective manner possible,” said Thomas L. Preston, executive director of the Kentucky Office of Homeland Security (KOHS). “These grants support first responder missions on behalf of the recipient community and region. It’s an integral part of our objective,” he said. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security provides the funding for the grants administered by KOHS.
